done by contract and expeditiously,
but bv reason ot the heavy burdens
already upon the county, and the
fact that it was compelled to pay at
the rate of one thousand dollar per
year until September next, for the
present building whether in ue or
not. the commissioners deemed it
unwi-o. and that in the end it
would prove by no means econom
ical to add that amount to t he debt,
and decided, therefore, to place the
construction under the immediate
siiK'rviion and control of Mr. .lohn
11. Lane, ot this city, than u horn
there ia not a more competent m
reliable builder in the State, with
instructions to push the work for
ward us rapidly only as the funds
therefor were collected. This course
has delayed the work on the build
ing', ami will cause its final com
pletion not to be accomplished un-
til some time
year of lsso.
The tlelay. however, will be to
(lie gain, rather than to the detri
ment of the structure, giving the
woik ample time to settle and

and thereby end forever the pay

As ji,n will perceive from the
drawings before urn. the building
when completed "id be second to
none in the State, and to but few m
the South. For comfort and con

anv m any State, while for solidity
and durability. Mr. Samuel Sloan,
the architect of the firm of Sloan

Munr.inK. Chairman Demo -ratio State
1'ommij.tee of New York:
la my letter of June Is. so. aJ
dressed to the delegation from the State
f New York to the Democratic National
Convention. I said : '"Having now borne
faithfully my full share of labor and
care in public service, and wearing
i marks of its burdens, I desire nothing so
much as an honorable discharge. I
wi-a to lay down the honors and tails of
even quasi party leadership, and seek
the repose of private life. In renounc
ing a reuomination for the Presidency
I do so with no doubt in mv mind as to
tiie vote of the State of New York, or
the vote of the United Statts: but be
cause I believe that it is a renunciation
of a re-election to the Presidency. To
those who think my renominutioii and
re-election indispensable to an effectual
vindication of the riyht of the people to
elect their rulers, violated in my person.
I have accorded as long as possible a re
serve of my deci-ion. But I cannot
o ercome my repugnance, to enter into
a new- engagement which involves four
years of ceaseless toil. The dignity of
the Presidential office is above merely
personal ambition, but it creates in me
no illusion. Its value is as a great
power for good to the country. I said
four years ago in accepting the nomina
tion. Knosving as I do, therefore, from
fresh experience, how great the differ
ence is between gliding through an
official routine and working out reform
of systems and policies, it is impossible
for me to contemplate what needs to be i
done m the iederal administration
without an anxious sense of the difficul
ties of the undertaking. If summoned
by the suffrages of my country to at
tempt this work. I shall endeavor with
God's help to be the efficient instrument
of their will. Such work of renovation,

and to others, and when at Cincinnati,
though respecting my wishes yourself,
you communicated to me an appeal
from many valued friends to relinquish
that purpose. I reiterated my determi
nation unconditionally. In the four
years which have since elapsed nothing
has occurred to weaken. but
everything to strengthen. the
considerations which induced my
withdrawal from public life. To
all w ho have addressed me on the sub
ject my intention lias been franklv
communicated. Several of my most con
fidential friends, under sanction of their
own names, have publicly stated my
determination to be irreversible: but I
have occasion now to consider ques
tions aud events for which I have no
responsibility. The appeal made to me
by the Demociatic masses, with appa

N ASiiiMiTON, June 10. Returns t
1''ottou planting, made to the I e 1
I;h ; men t tf Agriculture, indicate a
teinieney to an increase of area,
checked somewhat in the South
west by lams and inundations, and
m Moith Carolina and Tennessee
by low temperature in the planting
season. Replanting was still in
progress to some extent on the first
t of June. In the lower latitudes the
: apparent increase is about 1 per
, (ten t . It would have been larger
' with a better planting season. A
comparison of the area with the
! ores ions crop is as follows: Vir
; ginia S.!, North Carolina 101, South
Carolina 10(, Georgia lb.'i, Florida
101, Alabama 105, Arkansas 10G,
Tennessee 101, Missouri SO. The
temperature of April wasi lower
than the average throughout the
cotton States. The rainfall was de
ficient on the Atlantic coast, and
slightly less than nominal on the
Gulf coast; but rains were excessive
in Mississippi and throughout the
southwest, causing overflows of
rivers, injuring stands everywhere,
and causing a large amount of re
planting. The latter part of May
svas warm and clear on a consider
able portion of the Atlantic coast, I
causing rapid growth and affording j
opportunity for thorough svecdingl
and clean cultivation. In the West
fields are grassy aud chopping out I
is not yet finished. The season is)
from one to tsvo weeks late; but
plants are generally thrifty and ,
vigorous. The main cause of the '
relatively low condition is want of
Slze wuicl1 ''-W weeks t)f fine
weather may remedy. Yet a con-I
tinuance of bad weather would even
now be disastrous beyond the Mis
sissippi. The general average of
the condition is 87, against SO in
June of last year, and 89 in 1882.
