that Mr. Ilarlin’s suceessor will be a gentle- !

How (o Estimate Wowing Cotton.
I It mar be of interest ta those of your reader* on
g.igcd ii] cottou raising, and, perchance, beneficial!
to some, to peruse tbe following plan for estimat- j
ing the probable amount of cottou to be gathered,
; from their respective fields. I give a basis upon
which we may make calculation approximating to
Say 130 bolls of cotton wiil make a pound on an I
average. There is nearly or about 14,660 square ,
fret in an acre. Ten bolls to the foot would make
145,600 bolls to the acre—tLLs at 130 bolls to the ;
pound would make 1,120 pounds per acre. jj am
not sure that 1 am correct as lo the square feet )!
To make the calculation easy, we will sar the rows 1
are three feet apart—then lor ev»ry foot nongthe 1
row there are ten bolls, or thirty to the yatd— .
then every 70 yards would have 2100 boll's. 70 j
roirs 70 yards long would have 147,000 bolls,
which divide by 130, and we have 1130 pounds
per acre. But make a little more allowance for
the avenge bolls, and to make the calculation s iH
more e„sv and sure, wa will allow that the ten
bolls to tlie running toot, or 31 to the yard, will
only make 1000 lbs. per acre, whblt would
he allow.ng about 141 bolls to the pound, a very
. safe calculation, and we cm count soy numbrr o'"
hundred pounds per acre with v r? little trouble,
ten balls to the fro’, 1000—9 bolts to the foe
»Ou lbs per acre, and so on dowu to one boll to
the foot, loti pounds per acre. J. J. P

Washington, D C., July 11, ldbti.)
Sir :—Excuse mo for expressing surprise
tl at you ask me whether I approve of the!
call of a proposed National Unioin (Jonvon
tiou at Poitadelpl.il.
After more than five years of disloaationj
by civnl war, 1 regard a restcrati. nos the i
unity of the country as its most immediate
as well as its most vital interc-t. That res-|
(oration will bo complete when loyal men
arc admitted as repr-sentativos of the loyal
people of the eleven States so lemg unrepre
sented in Congeess. Nothing but Ibis can
complete it. Nothing more remains to be
done, and nothing more Is necessary, Every
day’s delay is attended by unl'tiplying nnd
increasing inconveniences, embarrassments,
i and and ugers at home and abroad. Congress
possesses the power exclusively; Coogresv
after a sessi nos seven months, sti'l omits
to exercise that power. “What can be done
to induce Congress to act 7 This is tho
question of theday. Whatever is done must
he iu accordance with the Constitution and
laws. It is in perfect aecorda&ce with the
('onstifuti n and laws that the people of tho
Uii ed Ft. tear hill asst mhle, by delegate?, in
. convention, and that when soass mbled they
shall address Congofs by te pett u’ petition
and remonstrance, and that the people In
several States, distrie's, and territories, shall
1 approve, sanction and unite in such rospre*-
ful representations to Cangreus. No one
party could do Ibis rfh-ctunlly, or even seems
willing to do it alone; no local or popular
organization could do it effectually. It is
the interest of all parties alike; of all the
tbe States, and of all sections—a national
interest; tbe interest of tbe whole people.
The Oonvertion, indeed may not succeed
in inducing Cjngrcss to act, but if they fail
the attempt can make matters no worse. It
wi‘l be a lawful and patriotic attempt made
in the riffbt direction, an effort to be remem
bered with pride and satisfaction whetbir it
succeed or fail. The original union of the
States was brought about by movements of
tbe same ehiraeter. The citizen who ob
jects to the Convention is bound to prop~.se
a better plan of proceeding to rffect the de
sired end. No other phn is offered, or even
thought of. Those who should oppose it
would seem to me to manifest atbestunaon
corn, if not opposition to all reconstruction,
restoration, and reconciliation between the
alienated masses of tbe American people.—
To admit that tbe Convention will fail, would
bo te admit luat the people of the U F. are'
deficient in either the wisdom or the virtue
necersiry to contii uo the cxis'cnec of the
Republic. I believe no such thing. A great
p 1 tieal writer says tbst government is a,
secular religion, and that the people of
every country are divi led iu‘o two classes
each maintaining a distinct political faith
The one class always fear the very worst that
tan possibly happen, and the other hopes
under every circumstance tbe very best tba‘
can in any cv nt happen.
Without excepting this thing as absolutely
true, T think all men do grn n rnlly act from
a motive to guard against public danger, or
else from a positive desire to do good. Rath
classes may therefore favor the present at
tempt to restore tbe unity ot the nation.
I am sir, your obedient servant,

This is the inauguration of anew era

At.THOcr.tt a year has nearly rolled around since
' the Snath of our friend and broi her—John. J. Simp
son, vet we feel it an iinpera ive du v t) rescue
; hi* roam try from oblivion, that, iiis children may
know incoming years the appreciation in which he
was held by tbe church amd"country.
Ho was a nob'e sresimru of a man and chrisfao
' gca leman—cxatnp'ifying all the virtues} and
g aces pett lining to a consistent pious life. For
mmy year* he vris Stetvird audClis* Leader in
the Methodist Oh a roll, as will ns Sabbath School
. Superintendent, till afHiction laid his paralysing
' hand apian him and robbed liiin of health and
1 strength, amt disqualified him for the discharge of
those holv du ies which he discharged so eflicieil
ly and lov*d,io well. Even when trouble longer
to work for the Church or labor for tbe promotion
-of thw it -de; ueFs King torn, his heart was with
theciuoe. He would send greetings ot love to
I tbe brethren, with his pn vers for the success of
: the Church aud cause ot (tod.
Never io any community was a man more lov
-led or respected than was John. J. -Simpson, by
the one in which he lived, and never was a loss
I rais e deeply deplored by Oaurch and citizens getl
i etally. Long did he labor most zenlouslv for the
rwo»p*rity of Salem Church, and npou lira death
: bed his theme was of 1 fta prosperity. ‘
’ lie has left an in’eres'ing wife and four lit'le
orphan boys, a daughter by his jivst uranuga,

live so as to rejoin him in the better land, where
