A final summary of its amount and quali fy will be given in the next report. Oftfortutiate for the past three seasons.

Lest misiipprefionsions of the extent ai' this dccreascd supply should pre vail, the returns and estimates of these years ehould be viewed in a group : BitsJiiia. In 1850 102.934,782 In 18t>.‘5 1(9,404,036 In 1801 100,094,823 In 1805 148,522,829 The estimate for the present year, now nearly coniple^ will not vary much from 143,000,000 bushel?; showing a per centage of decrease which is fully comjiensuted by the comparative ly superior quality of the grain, as was predict ed in a preceding number. This is ten millions of bushels more tlnu the crop of 1859, and is within five millions of a product in proportion to the increased [.05.illation. The diminution in the South is more appa rent. The estimates point to less than seven teen millions of bushels in the eleven States hitherto unreported—a I'raction less than five- tenths of the crop of 1859. It is worthy of remark, iu connection with the d iminution of the three past seasons, that the wheat crop of England has been likewise jdfcficient since ISOl. The California wheat harvest, of which little mention has been publicly made in connection mer, and it is very common that they have to stint themselves in this most necessary article of fuel, and many more than we suspect contract disease I’roui not being able to keep warm in Winter. 13ut bad as is the condition of this latter por tion of our people, it is infinitely better than that of so very many who are not able to buy fuel at all. The number of these very unfortu nate people is very great, and they are especial objects of charity. In the vast majority of in stances they are poor women, or disabled or su perannuated men who have not been able to ob tain enough from their daily hard earnings to buy a little wood in Winter to save them from frcizing. We call upon you who have been more favor ed by Providence than these poor people, to come to their assistance, and to contribute to their wants. We acknowledge that a man has a legal right to refuse to contribute a cent to his suffering fellow-mortal but if there is any truth in ihe Bible, the rich man has no rijht to withhold assistance which he owes to the poor. Fashionable young lady, how can you atlire yourself in silks of such extravagance that one single drc3s will cost enough to furnish enough to ten poor families to keep them from freezing? You may have the lojal right to deck yourself with the present crop, i^ excessive. In 1800 : ofl at any cost, but you have not the moral right to do so, while so many are suffering around you. Finally, wo appeal to all the community that are like joursclves above want. Every one of you could spare something to help the poor, if you would curtail some slight expenses, or some little luxuries which you would not miss, and the absence of which would benefit both your souls and your bodies. It is astonishing to see the product of this young State was nearly six ' millions of bushels. Now it is seriously claimed by leading (California ai^riculturists that tiie sur plus for export will be double that quantity. It is evident that the entire wheat crop will exceed by several millions, that of 1859, when the yield was rejiortcd at 173.104,924 bushels, 'ihtn tlicrx; were five and a half bu.shels to each individual; in ISOO the estimates point to five busfiels to cafh iiiha'iitrint. There is no ground, then, for apj'rehou^iou5 of scarcity, and little ex- cu.se, in the amount of the crop, for starvation prices. The yiflil of oals is extraordinary, and the quality excellent 'I’iio indications point to an increase from 171.107,072 bushels in 1859, to 271,912,095 in 1m;0. It is the only crop in the South that inaintain.s an c(|uulity witfi its .last census rt p(-rf.

Let every man lay by something to give in charity, and he will be laying up here on earth causc of that satisfac tion affurded by a good conscience, and, more than all, he will secure to himself the approba tion of Him who enjoined upon us the bestowal of charity as the peculiar duty of the Christian, and who has declared “that it is more blessed to uive than to receive.” ages from insects fintcred into a -.Mr Sownrd hns eorrc.-pondeticu wit h recoiiinicndiiig, in the the liiiti.>h Minister name of the l^\>ident, tenderness, amnesty and ' forgiveness in the ca-cs ('f Fatiier .Aic.Malion and Colonel Lynch, now under sentence of death at Toronto, mainly upon the ground that their of fence was a purely political one, and partly be cause they are citizens of the United States.— ■\Vc think it quite likely that the request will be complied with.

One was there, according to his own positive Btatement, simply as a newspaper correspondtfnt, ^nd the other as a mini&tcr of leligioc, to at tend to the wounded and dying, and no doubt in this capacity his services would have been tendered alike to the combatants on both sides. The only apparent evidence to connect Father ^jcMahon with the hostile movement was an expression of his to bring the valises along, as the “poor boy.s” might need whatever comforts they contained. This was the voice of humanity ' rather than that of crime. In view of thcte facts, and considering that material witnesses for the defencc would not be permitted to ap-' pear in Canada, there can hardly be much diffi culty in the Government acceding to President * Johnson’s expressed wishes in this matter.

We happened to stroll through the freight depot of the Atlantic and North Caro lina Railroad yesterday afternoon, and were struck with Ihe large amount offish we saw there. On enquiry, we were informed that corncd mullets are being shipped from below by thousands of barrels. We were not prepared to hear this, for the business is of comparatively recent origin. The prices obtained for this fish—which, by the way, is the best in the world of its kind— must be highly encouraging to the fishermen and all others concerned in the sales, and must tend, also, to the general prosperity of Carteret county.

The Cathedral of Norwich would, in almost any other country, be considered one of its chief architectural glories. Tiie building was com menced as far back as A. D. 1094 The work was carricd on for centuries, and the spire was not erected until loGl. I give those fads to illustrate the antiquity of these grand and vene rable monuments of Christian devotion. The architecture is of couise, from its era, Norman. It is 411 feet long, and 191 wide, while the spire is 315 feet high. It will give an American reader a better idea of its size for him to con sider that if Ihe width of the Transepts were that of the whole building, there would be more than enough room in it for twelve churchcs 100 feet long, by 60 wide, or for at least twenty, of the average of such as we have in North Caro lina. To stand at the western door of such a Cathedral, and cast your eye to its eastern ex tremity is like looking down an avenue of lofty trees whose branched intertwine far above you in the air.

'Ihe most popular of English preachers is the celebrated Dr Spurgeon—celebrated because of the homely and forcible way lie has of apprdueh- ing the understanding of his congregation. The following passages occurred in one of his recent discourses: “A certain tyrant sent for one of his subject?, and said to him: “What is your employment!''’' He said: “1 am a blacksmith." “Go home and make me a chain of such a length.” He went homo; it occupied several months, and he had no wages all the time he was making it. Then he brought it to the monarch, and he said: “(Jo make it, twice as long.” Ho brought it up again, and the monarch said: ‘•(Jo make it longer still.” Each time he brought it, there was nothing but the command to make it longer still. And when ho brought it up at last the monarch said : “Take it and bitid him hand and foot with it, and cast fiim into a fuinace of Sre.” 'Ihese are the wages for making the chain. Here is mefitation for you to night, ye Servants ol the devil. Your master, the de vil, is telling you to m »ke a chain.

In the i’outh we had S('mct!iing like it before the war. AVhcther it will continue under t!ie new order of things is douhtful. At the North, and on the Continent of Ivirope, men of wealth prefer to congregate in cities, and in the iioic as formidable to that of another nation, as it was at Crccy, at Blenheim, or at Waterloo.— An urban population is at the same time more unruly than a rural one. The Hydo Park riots last summer indicated pretty plainly the lawless temper of a London mob, and the timid policy of the ministry, who really gave up fi>r several days, the property of the government into the hands of the populace, augured ill for the future tranquility of the great metropolis. But I must now close this long letter Yours truly, Thomas Atkinson. IIiE ! TO THE Country.—We find the fol lowing in an exchange, which we commend lo the notice of our colored population ; “The colored people of Nashville, Tenn., re cently held a meeting to cofisider the propriety of going to the country. They were addressed by Judge Lawrence, of the Freedmen’s Bureau, who advised them to quit the uncertain employ ment afforded in town, and get homes in the country. Another meeting is to le held to fur ther the object of this meeting.” The colored people of Nashville have thus at length hit upon the wisest and soundest course they could adopt for their future welfare.
