COTTON. The general accounts of the condi- tion of the grow in* crop are not favor- ble. In Georgia and Alabama the stands are poor and the plant back- ward. The season so far has not been good, either in (Texas or east of the Mississippi. The increased land in cultivation this year, under the same favorable influences that so largely contrihated to swell the laBt crop to npwards of three million bales, would give ua three and a quarter to three and a half millions this fall. Six - weeks hence we may know something • definite on this head. At present we have nothing definite to go by, as if this month and July does not favor the planter and enable him to work his crop thoroughly, a portion of ev- ery field will necessarily be thrown oat, and the area of cotton be re- duced to a standard equal to, if not below, that of last year. ■Sales for future delivery are being made largely at the commercial points —we hear of "arrival" cotton in Liv* erpool, (new crop) 10,000 bales, sell- ing o...
