The leading staple showed more strength to-
day, and the improvement at Liverpool was
accepted by the best informed authorities as
the result of an improved trade at Manches-
ter. The quality of the receipts of raw cotton
in point of staple is excellent, but it is not of
good color, rather dull and grayish.
Trade continues active and buyers nu-
merous. There is also less circumspection
exercised in the limiting of orders to staple

The bark Lord Collingwood, which came so

on board over 200 barrels of Galveston-made

ment made by this company. The first went

the future of cotton—novel theories.
A correspondent of the New York Bulletin
has some original views on the staple, which
are appended in fall:
Baltimore, August 10.—To the Editor of
the Commercial Bulletin: " Waiting for some
thing to turn up " in the cotton market is gro jr
ing tedious, and the old regulars, who have
made their profits when the southern sellers
break the market for them, are losing confi-
dence in the sagacity of the planters, who per-
sistently refuse 10>f "or even 10 cents for their
ootton in the face of a 6,000,000 bale crop. Al-
lowing for damage by worms, rust, rain and
an average picking season, tbey calculate a
crop of 6,000,000 of bales, and all for sale,
without buyers. Speculators will not take it;
spinners without a market even with goods at
the minimum price: things look gloomy. The
mills are running on full time, and the lower
the price of their products the more they
are bound to make: and yet the visible
and invisible supply is "greater than
last year. It happens once in twenty years
that a bottom, middle and top is made and
saved. It occurred in 1359 and '60, and prices,
as in 1879 and ?80, were good. Hmall crops
bring small prices, because people are cautious
and will not trade. Let it once be a fixed fact
that the crop of *81 and '82 will exceed the
crop ot '79 and '80, we will have a boom ex-
ceeding in violence and duration the boom of
last season. If disasters overtake the present
crop, the dullness of trade will be as disastrous
a? a panic. Speculators will toy with the sta-
ple, spinners and shorts will suffer, and the
country generally relaps into sluggish econo-
my. and general "business will languish. Fruit-
ful years are bad for shorts in the leading sta-
ple products. -Yours, eta, Observer,
thirty thousand tons of ties.
The Boston Bulletin informs its readers that,
according to the present estimates, 30,000 tons
of cotton hoop-iron will be required to biud
the forthcoming cotton crop and put it in a
transportable condition. The only element of
uncertainty in this estimate is in regard to the
amount of"the crop itself. Statisticians posi-
tively predict a G.000,000-bale crop, and as the
present invariable method of fastening the
bales is by iron bands, six to a bale, it follows
that 06,000,000 such bands will be required
to tie up the entire crop. These bands
are of uniform weight and thickness
and 1200 of them weigh a ton, and hence
80.000 tons of them will be required, if the
prognostications of the statisticians are ful
filled in regard to the size of the crop. The
bands, or cotton ties as they are called, are
usually put up in bundles of 30 each, with the
same number of buckles strung upon one of
the inside bands. As each band has a length of
11 feet, it might be remarked parenthetically
that the 30,000 tons referred to will comprise
306,000,000 feet, or 75,000 miles of hoop iron.
Last year the average price at which the ties,
with their buckles, were sold to the planters
and compressers was $2 50 per bundle, or $100
per ton. If the same price is paid this year
the total cost of the entire crop will be
cotton brokers and commission men.
The Boston Commercial Bulletin says: This
city is still more largely interested in the do-
mestic cotton trade of the United States than
is New York. The great majority of the mill
treasurers have their offices here, and this is
the center in which all kinds of mill supplies
and machinery are purchased. And the raw
material, although bought in the south, and
shipped from thence directly to the mills, is
largely purchased through commission mer-
chants and brokers having their headquarters
iiere. These commission men and brokers
have their correspondents aud agents at south-
ern points, and it is customary for the latter
to come on here in large numbers and vi&it
their customers and inquire into trade pros-
pects just previous to the movement of the

the great wheat speculation—its alleged
history and losses to promoters.
The Chicago Times prints a long account of
the celebrated Keene wheat " deal," which has
now been closed out, with a loss to its organ-
izers and participants of several millions of dol-
lars. As is known, this "deal" was organized
more than a year ago, James R. Keene and
Jesse Hoyt being its originators. With them
were associated Perry n. Smith, George L.
Dunlap and Nathan Corwith, of Chicago, aud
Z. G. Simmons and judge Howe, of Kenosha.
The five last named were allowed a quarter in-
terest in the syndicate. Hovt had a quarter
interest and Keene a half. The New York end
assumed entire direction of the deal. Angus
Smith, of Milwaukee, thought he saw
a good chance in following the move-
ments of the syndicate, and be made
his speculations along with theirs, and an
agreement was finally arrived at whereby,
though he was not to share in the profits of the
sindicate, he was to be guided by its directors.
At one time the syndicate had bought 16,000.0 X)
bushels of wheat. They proposed to close out
the deal last May, but the attempt did not
realize their expectations, and they declined to
postpone it till June, and by renewed pur-
chases force up the price and then unload. "For
a time it looked as if this would succeed; but
Hazeltine—Hoyt's partner at Chicago—began
selling right and left, and the market slid
away. Now almost all their wheat has either
been" shipped or sold, and the Chicogo owners
of one-quarter intereet in the deal tind them-
selves each with a loss of from two hundred
and fifty to three hundred thousand dollars.
What Iteene's and Hoyt's loss is can not be
estimated, and Mr. Smith's loss is estimated
somewhere from a quarter to half a million.

off the prairies, and by the promiscuous felling
of timber.... And no better illustration can bo
offered than the present system of farming by

kept sufficiently moist, grows an immense crop
of grass and weeds after the crops have been

turned under by the plow, and to get r»d of it

nolaxd's River, Johnson county, Texas.—
People differ in opinions so widely, the points
from which their views are taken are so va-
rious, their wishes, or aspirations and motives
so muititudinous, that there is no reason to
wonder when their assertions are as contrary
from one another as are the points of the com-

Another "views the landscape o'er" and
proclaims that an Eden is found, without its
forbidden fruit, and within whose midst flows
that fountain of youth, the sparkling illusion
which cost the aged Ponce de Leon so many
But too soon disappointed, disgusted, the
road is again taken, and thus, footsore and
anxious, we feliow a treacherous " will o' the
wisp *' till God, in tender love, ends the pitiful
scene by calling: "Whosoever wiil, let him
come." O. pilgrim, herein lies your hope. And
yet this final hope, while we are earth-bound,
does not wholly fill the heart. One can not
help desiriug to rest by the way, apd the placa
of rest sounds sweeter when called home.
But to hasten. A third class of people, not
easily discouraged, not expecting too much,
take views from every available plane, set to
work to overcome difficulties, persevere till na-
ture is forced to|yield her blessings—thus homea
are made, countries prosper.
The prosperity of a nation indicates indivi-
dual success, fn northwest Texas agriculture
is carried on with a degree of skill that would
do credit to any older state. Improved ma-
chinery is appreciated and applied to farm and
domestic uses to a greater extent than in many
older countries. In this instance youth is the
teacher of old age, because there are presented
greater facilities for learning, and vigorous
youth takes hold of its chances, while venera-
ble age is sounding the depths with his crutch,
and by and by wiil venture somewhat of hi9
In this portion of Texas there are a great
mail}* old settlers. These families have accu-
mulated much property and have improved
their buildings, and in every respect are living
in comfort, ease and comparative elegance.
Yet within an hour's ride of such localities
one can lind a neighborhood of new settlers,
who, with a small beginning, iiave taken up,
or bought of absent owners, cheap lands, rich,
tine grazing, and built upon them small one,
two and three roomed boxed houses, with an
open gallery for shade. They have inclosed a
small part tor cultivation, have a few cows,
oxen and ponies, have already erected a school-
house and house of worship. And thus at
home they have every reasonable comfort for
a small outlay of means, and if patient enough
to remain and develop what the earth contains,
they will, in time, bo rich. So it is in many
parts of the country.
Out on the open prairies, a few miles from
the rivers and their affluents, water is scarce,
but can be reached by digging wells and cis-
terns ; also the best stock water by making
tanks. These tanks are made by building a
dam across the lower part of some drain or
break in the land.
A great number of these sources for water
are already existing. They are made without
extravagant expense. The shaly, soft lime
rock is easy to penetrate; the water 44 seaps" in
and fills the well thus roughly made, sufficient
for a seasonable year. Some persons have deep
wells reaching down to a hard rock floor,
forming everlasting water. The success in
cisterns, so far, proves that Texas can, by their
construction, have an unfailing supply of
water. These sources are not yet well de-
veloped ; I suppose from the lack of means.
There are several marked differences in the
open prairie and timbered portions of this
country. Prairie land has deeper, darker,
richer soil, generally less surface rock, though
some knolls are mixed with gravel, but are
now bearing heavy crops of native grass and
fine crops of corn and cotton. The summer
breezes also lessen the heat of the atmosphere
upon the prairies. In the timber there is ap-
parently more heat.
Net many neighborhoods are cut off entirely
from timber advantages. Either an offshoot
of the cross-timbers, else that wnicu borders
every stream, like a green fringe meandering
turough the otherwise monotonous, stretches
of level prairie. The land bordering some of
the water-courses, especially the Brazos bot-
toms, seems to be a mixture of suil and sand,
a fertile soil, but movable or shifting easily.
As an example, here in southwest Johnson
county, standing on the cliffs of the Brazos,
you can see, hovering in the wind, clouds of
sand over the valley on the opposite side, rising
and banking against the sides of the peaks that
are on the south. Yet large crops are raised
on this kind of soil. My observations are con-
fined to the country through which the M., K.
and T. runs, and through parts of Parker,
Johnson and Hill counties.
For beautiful, undulating scenery, for rich
bottom lands and fine grazing land, this part
of the state excels anything that 1 have seen.
This seems a wonderfully seasonable year.
The wheat is a fair but not an excessive crop;
while corn, oats, millet, cotton aud different
kinds of cane are all splendid. Regardless of
a report to the contrary, grain can be kept
iromone season to another, a* safe as in any
climate. This present season some people used
corn that was raised two years since.
This part of the state compares with the
older states in crop statistics. Even in years
of drouths, it never fails below half the usual
crop, and as wheat comes in early in spring, it
is scarcely ever a failure; while it is to be
taken into consideration that stock require but
little food other than the grazing—hence &
short orop dees not, of necessity, cause as
much suffering as might be expected.
It is no small thtsg to have the great advan-
tages one has here in stock. If a cow brings
ten dollars, its owner knows that its cost to
him has been but little more than the trouble
of branding. His ponies are tough, and do all
the work that is needed, costing but little more
than the prairie grass and stake-rope. They
are in good order, too. Manual labor demands
very high wages—not less than a dollar a day
for general farm-work, a dollar per hand for
picking out cotton. Planters frequently give
one-half to get the other picked. Pickers come
in from the frontier, camp around and pick
during the season: then move off. Some make
from one and a half to two dollars and a
The conclusion of the whole matter is, that
this is the poor man's country. Why should
any man. woman or child be without a home
when here in Texas are thousands of acres of
rich land, cheap land and pleasant to the eye,
asking you to come and make for yourself a
home' Again, you w-ili not be coming to an.
uninhabited, barbarous country. All over the
country are communites from the older states,
lovers of religious and educational order. In
breaking off from earlier ties, they have also
left behind many of the sectional and political
prejudiced that characterize older commu-
As an inducement to people of small capital,
you will find that respectable society does noli
demand of you an expensive style of living, of
dress and so forth: and besides there being a
yearly session of free school at every man's
door, so to speak, there are fine institu-
tions of learning all over the state that
offer collegiate advantages to all who are able
to patronize thera.
You can also see that under the present
movement of those interested in railroads, in
organizing an emigration society, no homeless
person is excusable whs remains without a
Ail the world is moving—rushing, as it were,

hasten to enter in and possess the land. Yon,
who are rich, enter in and develop its re-
sources; take no man's word for it, but ceme
and see, aqd there is no doubt but you will

offered by these broad, rich lands and tha
genial climate to turn them into the happy
homes and pleasant places, such as the whole
of (sod's country should be.
