The Good Time Coming has come and the gay
pcaaon fairly opened In this our delightful little town.
Qn'Wednbsday evening Ian it was usdierred in by
ono of tho pleaantest of pleasant parties nt tho Ma-
ponlo Hall. Wc were there to sec and bo seen. We
adopt General CmsarV famous paying in part. We
went wo saw and left. Those present were enjoy-
ing themselves entirely. Tho voice ot gayety and
the ringing laugh was heard above the sound of the
muiiie and dancing feet kept time nud pace with the
joyous spirits of tho company. Wo understand that
these parties wilt bo frequent until tho next 4th of
July If not longer.
ftT" What a difference there is m people in the
qulckpcss of preemption of nn idea. Wo note it es
pociallyj.io tho reading of different individual?. You
are reading a newspaper; joncomo across a para-
graph that seems to you to be vastly funny you hand
it to somebody "sitting near euro of his enjoying it
with you. Ho reads it slowly to the end and tecs
no Joke. You snatch tho paper from hhn and read
tlio paragraph to him. lie sees that he is expected
to laugh and ho laughs but evidently without know-
ing why. You endeavor to explain. 'Alas for him
wvlio drops a joke and picks it up again." His dull
nes's ditguMs you nnd yon feel liko beating him for
Ids stupidity. Moral. Don't wu&to your wit upon
left unconsumed. Hence the depression In price ot
till staple. Hut the Incoming crop is less than that
of last year nnd this will l.nvo 11 tendency to equal
ic the demand and supply nnd there is good reason
to suppose that the price will soon raise to some ex-
tent in proportion. IJut this is but ono of the pro.
ducts of the country. How is it with others?
ttrendttutfs generally have been produced in larger
quantities than heretofore and the present nnd pin
pective condition of European nfl'nirs lead us to sup.
pose that the demand for them will bo good not on-
ly uutll the present crop Is disposed of but for the
next crop as well. Tho 1 eult of this will be entire-
ly beneficial to all classes not only the producer buj
tho distributor at the expense of tho foreign con-
sumer. The same to some extent may be said of tho other
interests of the country Tho tobacco Interest for
itiatanceis in a sound nnd healthy state. The iron
interest and this is an Interest of no small impor-
tance wns never better. Iron in foreign markets has
lately advanced in pi ice and the present tendency N
still upward. Our tuaikct U governed ton great
extent by this. It will be readily seen that no harm
can result from this to denlcis in this article except
In the event only of largo contracts to supply tho ar-
ticle being on hand. Again the shipping interest

alwavs made from the West India Islands to tho LT.
States Hut there is reason to suppose that the
West India sugar crop will be a shoi t one tills year.
Many circumstance lead to this conclusion and
prominent mining them has been the ptcvalcncoof
epidemics during the past season in the sugar grow-
Hut in addition to all theso causes why no unfor-
tunate crisis in commercial affairs need bo apprehend-
ed is the enormous influx of specie from California
mines. This iutlux amounts to no less than from
3 j $1000000 to $0000000 per month. And this has
"j : been and is still going on with haidl an appreciable
150 ' depieciation in their relative ahie. Tho cause of this

l of the prophets we havo not time nor U it requis
ito to enquire into. It is sufficient that It is fortnn-
ato that it is so.
Here then we have every reason to believe that
tho apparently threatened crisis will not occur and
that the present stringency will soon pa away.
And although there has been and may continue to
bo here and there a failure such a thing nsgcueiiq
failures is by no means tc be anticipated. Theso fail-
ures aie no doubt caused by injudicious speculations.
