A j the fut be of Cotton in the conversing with several intelligent planters i find a feeling of despondency generally existing among them As to Tho Vuturo cultivation of Cotton in Tho Southern states. This feeling arises not from any doubt is to the ultimate efficiency of Tho negro is a Freo labourer but Rathor irom Tho contemplation of Tho Gigantic strides which East India Cotton has made of Lato year i towards Tho Mastery of Tho markets of the world. Tho planters say that the result of Tho Competition Between the american grower and the East India producer cannot in the Long run be otherwise than disastrous to Tho former. They Aro dismayed by Tho comparison of Tho Cost of Dabor at the present time with that in Tho past. Formerly Tho maintenance of. A slave Cost from $50 to $100 Fier Aurum now Tho services of Tho same Borer can not to had for less than four or five fold that amount. Tho wages of an efficient Field hand exclusive of his supports Aro now of a Moderato estimate $10,to $12 it a month or its equivalent in a share of Tho product. This is about five times greater than Tho wages paid by Tho East Indian cultivator at a Gold valuation. To counteract this immense disparity in the Price of labor Tho Southern planter can Only roly upon Tho Superior productiveness of Tho soil tie cultivates sided by those agricultural improvements which consist in thigh manuring by Tho from lao of the phosphates and deep blowing.

Tho mail party consisted of six men two Whito and four soldiers of Tho 9th, coloured cavalry. Tho two Whites escaped unhurt two of Tho soldiers one a Corporal in charge were killed and Tho other two wounded. The Corporal is said to Havo fought gallantly Tho other negroes adopted the policy of praying Foi Tho indians to be driven away.

Holliday finding two letters addressed to himself. The dead bodies Wero not scalped. All Tho mules belonging to Tho party were captured. Tho attack took Placo on Tho 11th near Tho Pecos River a Fow Miles above Howard Springs. No doubt Tho government will now Tako some Steps to Render Protection to this line if it cannot do so it should cease to offer any inducements by Way of contracts and acknowledge its inability to Cope with marauding Bav j�g03. It a a a in the Cotton worm. From Trio fold and farm october id in Tho agricultural report for september. James m. Ferguson writing from Piko Conn to Mississippi furnishes some interesting facts in regard. To that terrible destroyer of Commerce Tho Cotton worm. He concludes that three uen orations of Tho Worms Are produced during the summer the last commencing their work of destruction in Tho latter part of Augusti. When Tho Cotton Lias been consumed the eggs Are deposited on Trees grass eto., to to hatched in the Early Spring. A the Moth or Fly belongs to Tho not narnia tribe of the Moth family. They commence their flight at Sundown or a Little before and continue until ten or of clock darting with a Quick Zigzag motion from one stalk to another nearly always selecting Tho tallest and most vigorous plants on which to Deposit their eggs. I. Have not been Able to form any Correct estimate of the number of eggs Laid by Ono individual but Havo counted a Early 500 squeezed from Ono. Mr., Forguson made an Experiment with ten Worms. To placed them under a vase sup a plied them with food and watched their operations. The Experiment commenced on Tho 5th of August. On the 9th and 10th of the Samo month to writes a the Worms have quit eating and seemed indisposed to move. On the 10 Thaud 11th they commenced webbing by drawing a web from Ono Side of a Leaf to Tho other very tight which caused Tho Leaf to Bend or curl a Little. They then Drew another a Little tighter and so on until a the Leaf was Bent so As to form a tube inside of which they placed themselves and lined it with a Fina delicate web. Some i did not allow to have a. Leaf. They suspended themselves from a Stem and commenced a slow spiral motion and in about Twenty four hours had assumed a pupa state being enclosed in a Homey Cov ering through which the rudimentary wings and logs could be seen those inside the Leaf undergoing Tho Samo Quot changes. On the it 17th, the Fly emerged from Tho pupa state but was weak and hardly Able to Fly for about Twenty for hours. On the 20th, and possibly 19th, they commenced to Lay and on the 24th the first Worms Mado their appearance but were too Small to to seen without the Aid of a Glass. They i Row very slowly for the first three or four Days Bat after that wry. Rapidly eating several times their own weight every Day. They seem to eat More in the evening and in the morning than at any other time. In fact it is Raro to Spe them eat daring the Day. They have now. Tho 1st of september almost attained their full or. F. Claims that ravages by Tho worm can be prevented by following some systematic plan. He recommends that the planters keep a strict look mucin Tho Spring and destroy the Worms As fast As they Aro webbed out. The planters must act in concert is the Worms Fly from place to place depositing egg and of each Fly is capable of laying five Hundred eggs for a a every worm of the first generation destroyed we Cut off 250,000 from Tho As the Worms Ora found in patches it does not require much labor to kill them when in an embryo state. The Experiment i3 Worth making hot alas How difficult it is among Farmers and planters to Securo anything Liko Active efficient combination in anything but miserable party pol a tics. Any rum drinking bar room bully May get up a combination embracing a whole. County to make him a Constable or a jailor while men of science will fail to secure the confederation necessary to insure the most important and beneficial results. A the Rural population of this country have always been x Howers of Wood and drawers of water for Tho great cities because Tho latter understand and freely Uso Tho irresistible Powers of combination. We confess we Havo Little Hope of seeing Tho Only possible remedy for Tho accursed Cotton worm applied precisely because it does require Tho unanimous of whole neighbourhoods and counties. But to have done our duty in pointing out what might Provo a cure for Tho evil. Mitt Liin the vote of Pennsylvania.
