The Orops. From (all parts of the country our accounts represent the wheat crop as good. -In the western states, Ohio, Indiana,! Michigan, Illinois, and Wisconsin territory, take them as a4pdy,, .there probably will be over an averajkjj crop. In some places, where in the spring it was thought to bo entirely winter killed, it has come forward and will producb enough for home consumption and^a surplus for export. In those States there were sown large quantities of Spring wheat, and more than an usual quantity of corn planted. South .and East, the'Vccouuts are better still. In this cotinty there will probably be a larger crop than over before.

I.wluenck of a Bad ExiriurLE.—The Alabama Jo,mm! learns from a gentleman, whose source of information entitles it to high credit that tho conduct of Mrs. Winston, which brought about the lulling of Dr. Perrv, in Sumpter, Alabama, was in a-great degree attributable to the influenro produced on her mind by the readlng»of Mrs. Virginia Myers' lotters. She, too , wished lo write letters, which should be circulated, read and admired. The N.
