COTTON CONSUMPTION NORTH AND
The New \ork Commercial and
Financial Chronicle gives some in
teresting figures respecting the
manufacture of cotton goods for
the year ending September 1. The
total number of spindles in the
country at that date was estimated
to be 18,200,000. Of this number
12,100,000 were in the North and
1,100,000 in the South. In 1883
the number in tho North was 11,.
800,000, and in the South 800,000.
In 1882 the number in the North
was 11,820,000, and .'n the South
080,000. From these figures it ap
pears that the increase during the
last year was greater in the South
than in the North.
For the year 1883-84 the North
ern and Southern mills took 1,889,-
103 bales. Of this amount North
ern mills took 1,550,103 bales and
the Southern mills 334,000 bales.
The consumption of the Northern j
mills was not quite e<|iint to their i
takings. The following figures
show tho consumption of the North
ern and Southern mills for the past
tour years: In 1880-81 Northern
mills consumed 1,050,000 bales,
and .Southern mills 205,000 bales.
In 1881-82 Northern mills con
sumed 1,728,200 bales and South
ern mills 238,000 balca. In 1882-83
Northern mills consumed 1,730,000
hales and Southern mills 331,000 j auction for 9} cents,
bales, and in 1883-84 Northern
mills consumed 1,043,517 bales
and Southern mills 334,000 bales,
it will be noticed that the con
sumption of Northern mills last
year was less than it was the year
before, while that of Southern mills
was 3,000 bales greater. The In

this notice is to ask you to open

Our columns have always been
open to the discussion of the topics

ford us more pleasure than for our
farmers to use the columns of the

subjects which inteicst the farmer

much good would result free the
discussion of the subject submitted

number of their spindles.
Altlioiigh there Ims been a
steady increase in the number of
spindles, North and South, for a
number of years, there has been a
gradual decrease iu the amount of
our exports of cotton manufac
tures. In 1881 the value of theso
exports was 813,571,287; in 1882,
$13,212,979; in 1882, $12,951,145,
and in 1884. *11,855,211. The
year, of course, in vaoh case is un
derstood as ending June 30.
In striking contrast to our own
exports of cotton manufactures arc
those of India. They have steadi
ly increased from $3,560,000 in
1870 to $14,500,000 in 1884. Iu
commenting on the growth of In
dia’s exports tho Chronicle says:
’’While our foreign shipments of
cotton goods wero $4,500,000 more
than India’s in 1870, now they are
nearly $2,500,000 less. We will
add that India enjoys llie advan
tages of free trade, and is able
therefore to coinpcto with (treat
Britain in the markets of the
world. Tho United States prefers
a different policy aud takes tho
consoqnenccs. And this, too,
notwithstanding we grow cotton
of the best quality, have as per
fectly appointed factories as there
are In the world, use more intelli
gent labor, and therefore by the
yard pay no higher wages, and
