The American Cotton Crop. [Newspaper Article] — Singleton Argus — 8 December 1880

The American Cotton Crop- The cotton crop this year is larger than ever before—no less than 6,000,000 bales. All our other harvests are also very large, especially wheat. It was predicted that the farmers would repent : having Bowed so largo an acreage of tho latter cereal; but tbefomino in Russia will save us from a glut in the market. The export of American meat and other farm produce increases monthly at an enormous rate, and what with cotton and breadstuffs, and these supplemental articles, the drain of gold from Europe will be even greater- than last, especially as nearly all our bonds have now como homo, and are held by our own people. In the city of New York real estate within tho past year has gone up from 40 to 75 por cent^—an appreciation of . several hundred millions. There is not a Bingktmill, or foundry, or factory that is not now working full time, and the .wages are from 25 to 50 por cont. highor than two years ago. Emigrants nro arriving at the rate of 40,000 or 50,0...
