It is reported from Harris county
that two hundred and seventy-five
mortgages, covering amounts vary
ing from twenty to two thousand
dollars, have been recorded. The
average of these mortgages will not
fall short of one hundred dollars each,
showing that the aggregate amount
of these mortgages will reach, or ex
ceed, thirty thousand dollars. As
hundreds of mortgages have not been
recorded, and as the cotton crop is
yet unplanted, we can but regard this
as an index of a bad state of affairs.
The Athens Watchman reports
that Mr. W. T. Patman, of Ogle
thorpe county, brought to that office
on Saturday a sample of cotton which
very closely resembles wool, and
which he says was grown in that
county by Mr. Burnett Salmon. A
daughter of Mr. S. some two years
ago, while in Charleston, went on
board a vessel which had just ar
rived from Zanzibar, on the coast of
Africa, and while on the boat picked
up some singular looking seeds from
the floor and brought them home,
where they were planted, and pro
duced this wonderful imitation of
wool. The seed were all saved, and
again planted this year, when a con
siderable quantity was raised. Some
of this cotton was ginned by Mr*
Patman, who says it will yield one
pound of lint to every pound and a
half of raw cotton. It is to be equally
as valuable as wool, and produces as
well as ordinary cotton. The seed
are very small in size. Mr. Salmon
will sell the seed in small quantities.
