The Crop of the P st t .vo Years--What
to Expect this ictr--Good Advice to
The cotton crop of 1875 was
4,669,000 bales. On the 1st of Jan
uary last the crop of 1876 was esti
mated by the knowing ones to be at
least 300,000 bales less than the
crop of 1875. During January
theio was a short receipt which
seemed to confirm their view, and
cotton stiffened a little in price. But
in February there were 41,000 balos
more forwarded to our ports than in
January, and hence the reckoners
tell us that that in all probability
the crop of 1876 will prove fully as
large, if not larger than that of 1875.
From September 1, 1875, to
Febi uary 28, 1876, there were for
warded 3,405,000 bales. From 1st
September, 1876, to February 28,
1877, there were received at our
ports 3,491,000 bales. During
March, 1876, 352,000 bales were
received. Were we called upon to
"guess" from these data, we would
say the crop of 1876 would exceed
that of 1875. How much of it will
reach manufacturers before Septem
ber 1, 1877, no one can now fore,
We all know that for tie past
three years cotton has been gradu
ally declining in price, whilst the
manufacture of cotton goods and
the production of cotton has been
steadily on the increase. During
the past year the manufacturers had
a surfeit of stock on hand, and
all kinds of cotton goods were very
low in price. Factories reported
heavy losses because they had
bought cotton on a declining mar
ket, and, with a heavy supply on
hand, were compelled to manifac.
ture for a still falling market. All
this condition of things, however,
has changed, for this accumulated
stock of goods has been disposed of,
both in the European and American
manufactories, whether at a loss or
a profit it is not our purpose now to
venture an opinion, and doubtless
most of them have been constuined
one way and another, so that the
manufacturers enter upon a new
year with their shelves empty, the
supply small, the demand good,
cotton low, and cotton goods ad..
vatnemg mn price.
If there be no war in Europe this
year, which the sages tell us .there
will and there will not be, and if our
Presidential muddle, which appears
to have been settled for the next
four years, gives us no trouble. it
seems clear to us that the cotton
manufacturers may anticipate a
prosperous year.
Can we say the same for the cotton
planter ?
Obse v.tion, judgment and expe
rience teach us it is not a matter of
vital concern to the individual
planter whether the crop is four, five,
six or' ton milliops~ of bales. If there
is a large crop, cotton will doubtleais
be low, and each planter will rece vs
less for his crop. But if he is out of
debt he will find that his money will
buy as many necessaries as the
greater amount would, wvhich hie
wvould realize by selling his cotton
at a higher price in consequence of
the general crop being small. If
the general crop is small cotton goes
up, and everything that the farmer
saould feel comipelled to buy goes
up with it, and hence he is lhttle
better off..
But it does concern the individual
planter wvhether he is growing a
large crop of cotton to the exclu
sion of everything else, The cotton
crop should be taxed for the neces
sary supplies that cannot be grown
at home, Jor schools, church pur
poses and the annual taxes, and
the residue should be a net surplus
for investment.
Are the farmers pitching the pres
ent crop with this idea in -their
minds ? Have they sown wheat
enough to secure them their bread ?
Will they buy molasses next year,
or are they going t~o plant sorghum
and imake their own syrup, and save
seed and fodder enough to winter
their stock hogs and dry 'cattle
upon ? Have they sown at least
five acres of oats to the mule so
that should they fall in a corn erop
they will not* be obliged to cut
tivate this and the- next crop on

We say, then, beware of it. Cotton
will doubtless bring a good price
next Fall, but this will avail you
nothing, if you have to exchange it
for all other nocossarios, 'which will
be equally as high priced. --News

The Mormon and His Wives.
"Among the gentiles," asked a re
porter of a Mormon in Silt Like
City, "oven one wifo is often roe iri
ed as an expensive luxury, H.>w is
it that among the Mormons a poor
wan is able to support several wives?"
"Oh, that is easy to explain. A
man who joins the Mormons gener
ally makes money by it. Let us
supposo a icase. Say a European
po:sa.nt comes over here with his
wife, having been induced to join
the Mormons in Utah. Ho i;nueli
ately t.akes possession of 160 acres of
good land under the law of Con
gress. Now, this is a groat thing
for a man who has probably neter
owned a foot of ground before. The
land out there, you must remember,
is very good. The soil is rich and
deep, and the rain. fall has increased,
I suppose, about one hundred per
cent. in the last fifteen years. Still,
the land has to be irrigated to some
extent. Well, the man goes to work
and puts upi a little hut made of
slabs or logs and mud; Then h, gets
a cow, raises crops, and pulls through
the first year. He may h tvo brdight
over a peasant girl to work for him
at say $2 or $3 a week. He sees
that he can just as well marry thq
girl and save the iwages he would
othorwio have to' jay her. He 1i.rs
a baby after a while, and the
next year he puts this now ,wife of
his with her baby, upon another lp~
acres of land. Perhaps he hais boen
smart enough to build his hut just
on the boundary of the farms, so
that by putting up an extension the
new 'family' can live in the same
house and got on another farm,
Then as he extends his domain, he
will marry more wives, and each of
his additional children he puts upon
another 160 acres, Now, you know,
after the settler has occupied a farm
for five years, built upon and work-,
ad it, he gets a full title to the
property from.the Federal Govern
ment. Each of his wives, after he
has lived on another 160 aero3 for
the same time, can swear o ut a clear
title as 'head of a family,' This has
always been done, and is done still.
And thus the head of the concern,
who cane into the country a poor
peasant, often becomes a regular
patroon, living in ease, in the centre.
of his domain, while his wives and
their children go on increasing thQir
numbers and his wealth 'Now ydn
know just lion it is done."
