Cotton Statistics.
From the official report of the Nation
al Cotton. Exchange of America, sent
from New,; Orleans i Septal 4 1882 we
glean: some; interesting statistics. '"' The
American cotton crop for 1881-'82 shows
a large .falling off from the production
of the previous year, after four years of
steady increase. This will appear from
tne 1 0110 wing-
crop years
bales.

1879-SO-
844,498.
1881-82, decr'ee from 1880-8 11.149.702.
Or to put in nn other view the crop of
1878 amounted to 4.773,865 bales; that
of 1879 to 5,074,155- of 1880 to 5,7i,252;
of 1881 to 6.605.750 f --while the cron of
1882 or 1881-82 turns out only 5,456,048
utueti. -
? Iff -the reports from, the different
States Jforth Carolina and Florida are
the only two cotton Statea whifih in-
icreased their -production in 1881-82 all
the others fell behind.
In Uie disposal of the crop the follow
ing figures will be interesting:
ott .supply m lSO-81. 6.750.614
bales; hi 1881-83 5,73,079.
Lonsumed by Northern spinners in
1880-81, 1,713,626; in 1881-82, 1,677,581.
Consumed- by- Southern sninners in
1880-81, 22a,tll; in 1881-82, 286,954.
xi any connaence couia be placed m
figures or in the law of "supdIv and
demand," as opposed to speculators, it
would be reasonable to expect cotton
to command a pretty figure for the
coming season. The most gratifying
part of the whole exhibit is the one
showing that, the South is increasing
her spindles and is the only country
that consumed more cotton last vear
than daring the year before.

The proceedings of the Republican
convention at Polloksville, last Satur
day, is sent us for publication, but it is
rather lengthy. The following extract
will give the drift of the feeling:

he will and should be elected by at least
five thousand majority.

Cotton for IHorning Showers.
Mr. J. L. Rhem has a kind of cotton
that the blossoms are rot affected by
the morning showers as is the case with
the ordinary cotton. He obtained the
seed of a farmer near Deep Gully. It
grows so as to let the water out which
prevents the form from dropping.
The Cotton Market.
We note in the Raieigh Observer of
Friday,' middling cotton quoted at 11J.
On same day it was selling here at Ilk.
It takes, however, good cotton to rade
middling. The bulk of the nice cotton
that is marketed here generally grades
only strict low middling selling from
i to i cents less than middling.

We notice that the house of R411i
Bros, of Norfolk, among the largest cot
ton exporters in the United States, have
established here a "grader," Mr. Fisk,
in connection with their buyer, Mr.
Matt Manly. The facilities here are
now so great that New Berne ought to,
and, we believe, will be the best cotton
market in Eastern North Carolin, after
Wilmington. The buyers make a
marked difference between good and
bad cotton and it wtll pay those bring;
ing cotton here to handle carefully.

Graded Scltool Notes. .Tr,
T We give to-day: the list of text books
for the different classes in the Graded
School. Prof. Johnson has. made ar
rangements with the publishers to allow
"exchange" that i, any one ma
carry old books of similar kind. bv ant
author and by paying a small difference
get the new book. Mr. Stanly will
have the books on in a day or two. ; f
The published list of f books does not
cover all the instruction offered, espec
ially in the primary grades. ' Much of
the teaching will be oral and illustrated
by blackboard ext rcises. A very com
mendable feature will be the attention
given to vocal music. It is almost im
possible to. learn to be a good reader
without practicing the principles incul
cated in teaching vocal music. -
Prof. Johnson - examined about 50
children yesterday of the six to seven
years of age. To-day the eight-nine
crowd go in. He requests us to an
nounce a slight change in Friday's pro
gramme: On Friday those from 11 to
12 years, inclusive, will be examined,
and on Saturday those from 13 to 21.

having now, new desks for 460 pupils
420 having registered. J
Miss Juliet A. Core came in on the

French scholar, conversing fluently 'in
the French language.

There was a match game of base ball
played at Mr. Dempsy Luptons on lower
Broad Creek ? Friday. 1 There having
been a challenge passed and accepted
between E. G. Robbins, Captain of the
Trent Club and R. L. Woodard, Captain
of the Broad Creek Club, and after hav
ing played 5 innings each, the Broad
Creek Club having scored 18 to the
Trent's 10 the rain came to their relief
and a stop was put to the game leaving
Capt. Woodard master of the situation.
The dinner was served at the usual time
and it would have done you good to see
how that crowd stowed away the good
things furnished by the hospitable la
dies of the Broad Creek section, consist
ing of meats of all kinds, fish, fowl,
tarts, pies, cakes, and in fact eyery thing
to tempt the a petite; and your humble
servant held his own on this occasion as
he will on a certain day in November
next. Don't be too sure; it may be
that your opponent will try some of the
Broad Creek cake, and insert a finger
in the pie before November. Ed. Jour
nal. For that crowd I will tender to
the lady managers, to wit: Mrs. Dr.
Lindsey, Mrs. James Jones, (whose
name was changed from Mrs. William
F. Jones on the evening before, F. F.
Woodard, Esq., being the official on
that occasion, (and I assure all who see
this that if one can judge from appear
ances they were both pleased with the
change) Mrs. Frank Fulcher, Mrs.
Benj. Lupton, Mrs. Robert Wharton and
many others whose names I did not
learn, our heartfelt thanks for the
good things and hearty welcome we
all received. Notwithstanding the pour
ing of the rain a good portion of the
day, all seemed to enjoy themselves,
and who could do otherwise when
there was so many lovely faces to grace
the occasion V Hog Island and Cedar
Island being represented by both belles
and beaux and as for Vandemere,
Spring Creek and Broad Creek, there is
no use for me to undertake the task of

gress, is booked for this place next Sat
urday. It is said th.it the Col. is hard
to beat in a political speech, and that he
can knock the spots off Gov. Jarvis

be some prejudice against you on ac
count of something some one don't like;
perhaps-its the Quaker Bridge Road.
Very healthy yet: some few cases of
sickness only. Capt. Burns Smith is
very sick with billious fever, and a little
son of M. Russell, Charlie, is also sick

four legged ones I mean, are very sick
ly. The wild deer are dying with black
tongue by the hundreds. Whew ! ! !

the large an I flourishing schools in

all important subject of education; un
less there is a change we will continue
to sustain .ur reputation as the Rip
Van Winkle of North Carolina. The
