Stbacusk, October 18-—The Straight

Charles P. Sykes as Presideot, and re
solved to press forward the Louisville
Auburn, October 18. —The manuscript
of the original draft of Seward’s book was
entirely completed sometime since. At
the time of his death, Seward had finished
the revision of about two-thirds of it.
This revision will be at once taken up and
completed by his son Fiederick and his
adopted daughter, Miss Risely Seward.
The Condition of the Cotton
Crop—Report of the Agritnltnral
Bureau, etc. etc.
Washington, October 18.—The follow
ing is the synopsis of the statisticians of
the Department of Agriculture, upon the
condition of cotton in October.
The cotton prospects have undergone
serious changes since the September re
port. The weather lias been generally
favorable for picking. No violent storms
are reported, and the drouth has not pre
vailed. The rain fall in nearly all the
cotton States exceeded two inches in Sep
tember, Florida alone reporting fully four
inches and Tennessee three.
The devastations of the catterpillar have
extended further North, even to North
Carolina, and have involved the top crop
partially, and in many places wholly.
The influence of the drouth in the later
summer months, has been cumulative in
its effects and exhausted vitality is more
apparent than in September ; yet there
are districts which report exemption from
this premature decay, and promise en
The effect of fertilizer is advancing the
crop ia the Atlantic States.
The continued effort of the worm is
shortening the season of the growth, and
will greatly hasten the close of the pick
ing. In some places the crop is already
gathered, and in many others the fields
will be clean-early in- November.
The general average of. condition is re
duced from 91, in the first week of Sep
tember, to 82 in October. In October last
vear the average was 76, which was a ena-
terial reduction from that of the present
month. It will be seen that the condi
tion is still placed higer tha . in last,
year’s report for October, while the area,
according to our Juno returns, was 13 per
The State averages are as follows : Vir
ginia 87 ; North Caroliua 90 ; Si aith Car
olina 86 ; Florida 75 ; Georgia 88 ; Ala
bama 82; Mississippi 78; Louisiana 72 ;
Texas 85 ; Arkansas 75 ; Tennessee 90 ;
The local disparity existing in the con
dition of cotton is perhaps more marked
marked than usual. Of the two counties
in Alabama producing most largely, both
together yielding one-ninth of the cotton in
the State. Montgomery reports one hun
dred and Dallas fifty. In Georgia, Daw
son (?) the first in amount of production,
returns one hundred, while Sumter and
Lee, both large producers.give only sixty
six. In Mississippi a few prominent coun
ties report a high condition—Washington
sixty-six. Madison sixty-six. Warren sixty
live, and Hinds sixty, while Maxwell and
Claiborne return one hundred.
John A. Whitcmore lias been appointed
Postmaster at Sumter, S. C.
The ballances in the United States
Trea ury, at the close of business to-day,
were: Currency, $5,000,000; coin, $77,-
500,000 ; coin, certificates, $24,500,000.
Irish Catholic Benevolent Union.
Philadelphia. October 18.—At an in
formal meeting of tho merchants, held to
day, the Philadelphia Chamber of Com
merce adopted the following resolution :
Resolved, That a meeting of the mer
chants, manufacturers and bankers of Phil
adelphia, be held on the 21st, at the Cham
ber of Commerce, to consider tho expedi
ency of petitioning Secretary Boutwell to
relieve the money market by purchasing
$44,000,000 dollars of interest-bearing
debt, with a like amount of legal tenders
retired by Secretary McCullough.
In the Irish Catholic Benevolent Union
convention to day, a debate occurred on
the Constitutional amendment to strike
out the word “Irish’ from the name of
the Asssociation. It was advocated by
Col. Kilgore, of Virginia, and opposed by
Fathers McCatferey and Rooney. It
finally stood, yeas 57, nays 85, and the
proposition was defeated.
An Equine Epidemic Disease.
Toronto, Canada. October 18.—The
epidemic among the horses has now ex
tended throughout the Dominion, se
riously interrupting the business of the
country. The street cars in Montreal have
stopped running. In their stables more
than three hundred horses are sick Farm
ers in the country are unable to bring
their grain to market. The disease is not
often fatal, but recovery is Blow.
Memphis, Tknn., October 18.—Lewis
Holmes and J. F. Eubanks, both planters
of Hardeman county, had a diffic ity yes
terday, during which the latter struck the
former over the head with a stick of wood,
from the effects of which he died soon af
Death of a Catholic Biahop.
Baltimore, October 18.—The Kt. Rev.
Michael O’Connor, formerly Bishop of
Pittsburg, died this morning at Woodstock
College, near this city.
Sale of a Newspaper.
St. Louis, October 18.—Two-thirds of
the Evening Dispatch of this city was sold
by W. H. McHenry to Robt. Barclay ou a
basis of $120,000 for the whole paper.
Barclay previously owned one-third of the
Worthy of Imitation. —We desire to
commend to farmers and employers gen
erally the example of a well known citi
zen of this county, Learning that some
of the negroes in his employ had voted the
Democratic ticket at the recent election,
he went home and talked to them after the
following fashion : “You have shown by
your votes that your consideryour interest
in politics the same as mine; and by fol
lowing my advice you have proved that
you want to promote my interest as well
as your own. I will give each of you five
acres of my best land next year, and will
help you tocnltivate it.”
This shows the right spirit. Whcu a
negro can muster up enough moral cour
age, (and it takes a great deal) to leave
the Radical party and vote with the
whites, the latter ought to show apprecia
tion of it. —Perry Journal.
Inckhdiarism. —An attempt was made
to burn the town Sunday night last. The
store of Mr. Jno. R. Ware was fired with- j
in. by placing balls, saturated with kero
sene, on and under the shelving of the
store. It was luckily discovered before
much damage was done. The entrance
was made from a side door which was
found unlocked. A few moments more
and a whole block, perhaps, of stores
would have been consumed. Our city
authorities had better employ extra police

Cotton. —The cotton crop in this coun
ty promises now to be much better than
was expected a month or two ago ; taken
as a whole, there will be a fair average
crop made in the county. The staple is
opening very fast—faster than is usual, be
cause so much of the foliage has been
stripped off by the caterpillars—aud the
farmers are employing every available
freedman to pick it out in a hurry. —Perry
It is a notable fact that more pocket
picking is done at Greeleyite than Repub
lican meetings. In fact, there i> none of
this at the latter. —Uarrieburg (Pi ) Jour
Correct. Only the honest, substantial
citizens, as a rule, get their pockets picked.
