wm& -pishes THE CROl'3, The following is a summary of the information wo nave garnered irom our exchanges respect llifj the Crops in various Dirts of the count rv. In most parts of A'eio EnslanA tho drouth has been very severe. In tho neighborhood of Boston) beforo tho late rain?, tho fields looked soared and blasted. In sumo instances unripe Corn has been cut up to food the cattle. The Waterbury (Conn.) American says it has no ictuiivuiiijii ui inioseiiiir bucii a uecpiy-pcno tratinjr, Fcatliinu drouth, as nrovails in that vi cinlty. Largo streams, in ordinary times, are now literally dried up water-wheels are at a stand mills and factories deserted wells arc 'broken at the fountain' and cattle aro driven miles for their daily supply ol necessary drink. J he hay crop has been shorn of its usual iinv portions potatoes are stifled and Indian Corn ruined past recovery while gardens havo long since ceased to bo talked about. Tho l.ito rains havo probably put a new f.ico upon vegetation, uul uiu ni(ia mui biiii uu vurv llgnr. III tho Western part of of New-York things look better. Tho Catt.ir.itiirus Whirr h.iv.i tlo.t "the Crops in that and Allegany Counties never looked better than the present season." The Alleghany Advocato says : "Tho earth groans under the burthen of the products of tho season. The toil of the husbandman has been abundant ly rewarded, and all hearts should be raised gratitude to tho Giver of our ovorv blcsslnrr.' On the Western Reserve, (Ohio) according to mo uicroiami lloratu of tho iy:b, the drouth continues with unabated soveritv. ami the giass. hoppers have done much lujurv. In portions of oomiiiit, nT.irswi II not all 01 I'ortago county, the earth remains uni'ioistened, tho fields pre senting a bare and quite desolate appearance. In somo sections of I'urlagp myriads of cr.is- h ipors have s ripped the fnlf.'s of every thing green, even to leaves Irom Apple orchards, and the bark from currant bushes. Oats, I'niatiic", Corn and Grass, havo suffered alike from their mischievous depredations. Such is the scarcity of fodder and the bad prospect for wintering rattle, that some of the best and most cttensivo dtiry farmers are dipoiirig of thoir choice ftork uf Cows at from 85 to 30 per head. Others aro clubbing together and making arrangements for wintering their stork abroad, and others con template purchasing Corn in t ho Southern al loys of the State to carry them through the com ing winter. In Northern Wisconsin, a ho learn from the Green Bay Republican, t he Crops particularly Wheat, Com, Oats and Barley are boiler than ever befuro knoivn. The Wheal is heavy, and entirely free from either smut or rtlr. Tho corn is very heavy ; Gras and I'olalocs, how ever, aro almost an cntiro failure, in conse quence of the unprecedented hot, dry weather. It is feared that, if a long winter should ensue, tho cattle will faro bird in Calauiut and a por tion of Fond du Lie counties. Whole fields of Timothy and Clover aro not worth cutting. Wild I'rario Hay is much better. In Maryland the Wheat crop has not only been an abundant ono as torjuintity, but is like wise remarkablo for tho excellence of its quaii. ty. In tho valley of the Susquehanna l'ie pro ducts of numerous farms havo been found lo woigli.sixty-eiglit pounds per bushel. In Fred, erick county, Md. the crop of one farm recently sold to a miller, weighed 03 to 00 pounds per bushel. In Virginia, says the Richmond Whig, "while particular counties and neighborhoods will fall short of an adequate snpply of Corn, tho aggregate crop of the State, in conjunction with large supplies of tho old crop which still remain on hand, especially below lids-water, will not only be ample for homo consumption, but yield a largo surplus for coat transporta tion. West of the Blue Ridge, and Kast of tho falls of the Rivers, the Corn crop is believed to bean average one. In many of the Midland counties it will fall short. I he wonder is that fo much should have boon made in defiance of so unprecedonted a drouth. It speaks well for tho improved mcthr-ds of cultivation. Twenty jenri, ago fiici a drouth would scarcely hae allowed teed corn In bo raised." In Smith Carolina and Georgia the prospect is gloomy. A correspondent writes to the Charleston Mercury from the Warm Springs in Meriwether Co. Ga. as follows ; "The provision crop will fall short fully two thuds, end so far as we had the means of obtaining informs! lion, the opinion wa that tho whole upper country i in about the same condition.

In spoaklng of the chances of troubles with Mexico, tho Now Orleans I'icayuno says : " Tlioro may, or may not bo a collision be tweon Gen. Taylor's command and the Mexi can army, of whom rumored movements wo have fur so many days had accounts. This last named body of mensaid to number sotno eight or ten thousand, may bo advancing towards our troops tlioso who doubt it do not know that it Is nut so ; and it is evidont that they havo had time at Vera Cruz, Motamoras, and oilier towns ou Iho coast of Mexico, to hoar of tho concen Iration of our small body of forces at Corpus Christi. Besides, tho course of Mexico in not coming out at once, and promptly, with a de claration of war, while it was expected, and her gasconade and bravado about tho United States, may all havo bcon intended to mislead us as to her movements, while sho was marching her troops to tho Rio Grande. Wo havo heard it said that the captain oftho ship Queen Victoria, just returned front Aran sas Bay, gives it as his opinion, from what ho saw while there, that there is need and ur emit need, too of reinforcements to General Taylor's command. It is said that the people, or many of them, at least, about Corpus Christi, (many of whom are .Mexicans) aro in tho con fidence If not in tho pay, of thu Mexican nation, and they have sent intelligence of Gen. Tay lor's arrival, position, &c, lo Motamoras. All this, wo repeat, may bo true or untruo i but wo must maintain that it is all right and proper to bo ready for whatever may turn up. Mow humiliating would it bo to loarn that, for want of confidence in tho rumors we hear of the JPHOach of Ion thousand Mexican Boldiers, our bravo litllo band at Corpus Christi had boon either surprised, routed, or cut to pieces I Drptrlnre if the Volunteer Artillery and V f.

Acre (Jrtcans I topic, l'J!h. The Now Orleans Bulletin thus remarks upon the refusal of Yucatan, to join in the war which Mexico proposes to declare against the United States. The refusal by Ihe authorities of Yucatan to join the Mexican Government in a war against the United States, is an important fact, thai cannot fail to exercise a political influence on current events. Il shows at least the feeling of hostility, which is so clamorous against this country at the capital, and docs not extend to the remolo Departments. Tho provinco of Yu catan has ever been distinguished for its liberal notions. It fought against Sanla Anna, and re sisted tho establishment of Centralism success fully. And for some time past, its position has been ono of almost entire independence of the General Government. Tho event is no doubt within ihe recollection of our readers, that dur ing Ihe revolution which broke out there sever al years ago, Yucatan formed an alliance with Texas and r.o-ODcratod with thn 'IVslan (Wt. under Commodore Moore, in waging war upon Moaii'o. The population, wo aro told, aro su. pcrior a- a gioat mass to Ihe rest of Iho Mexi cans. 1 ho proportion of wbitns. nf thn P.nrnnp. an Spanish blood, arn ng them, is greater, and tuutniioii is more extensively amused. J ho people of that province have rfhown a decided capability for self-government, hut their remote- ness nas prevented Ihe exercise of an inlluence that, if exerted, might yet redeem Mexico. Considering the character and tlio position of ucalan, it is not at all surprising that the pub he authorities haie rofu-cd their sinction to hostilities against tho United States. Wo should rather expect them to favor than to op pose tho progress of Annexation. The same reeling, to a groat extent, no doubt, pervades tho liberal and enlightened classes throughout .Mexico. 1 hey ato conscious ol the total in competence of tho Mexican rabble to govern themselves ; and lamenting over tho certain rum which turbulence and anarchy aro brinin" on their country, would gladly we'lcomo tho"ex' tension of Ameriran institutions, and rejoice to see Ihe "area of freedom" advancing iu boun dary South of Tchuantcpcc. EiGrtTr.ENTii Annual Faih of the Ajirr.i can Institute. The Managers of this socie ty announced some tnno since their arrane incuts fcrthe coming annual fair. As t lie sea son for it approaches, it is thought important that the public should bo reminded of what is to bo done. The exhibition will bo opened lo Ihe public on Monday, the 0;h day ol October. IS 13, at P o clocd. M., at Niblo's Garden, Broadway. Con tributions from exhibitors will be received on Thur.day, Iriday and Saturday oftho previous week. I u insure tho most favorable locations, and Ihe advantages of competition, the articles should be entered on tho books of the Fair, on ono ol thote days. There will bo an opening address, followed by novel and interesting displays of the Pyro technic art. On Thursday tho ninth day of October, a National Convention of Farmers and G.irdincrs, aim oiiK uulturiMs will be held. Circulars, wim ijucnnunH prepareu, will bo issued. Wash ington's Home Doparlnient of Agriculture, re commended by the Institute, and unanimously a?prood by a National Comcntioii held last year, will again be urged. Tor Ihe mconi week, has been assigned tho show of cattle, horses, and other livo Muck, and tho ploughing and spading matches. Fine horses, combining size, strength and tleetness, for wagon and carriage healthy fat cattle and sheep, suitable for market well trained, well matched, and powerful working cattle, and the btst milch cows, will each and all command high premiums. To acrommodato tlioso inter. osied iu tho cattle show, a beautiful plot of Kiuuim iu oecii nxureu uciwcen I wenty-third and 7'wenty.fourlh streets near Iho intersection of Broadway and the Fifth Avenue, with com. modious rooms on tho premises for accommoda ting tho committees. Tlie ploughing and spad. ing matches will bo hold in New-York, or its vicinity, tor particulars, see agricultural cir cular. Tho anniversary and other addresses will also bo delivered in tho course of iho second week. I lie horticultural exhibition of vegetables, fruits, il iwers, &.c, will bo in Niblo's lung promenade, and superintended by eminent horticulluralists. Great varioties of rare seeds havo been, the last year, scattered by Iho Institute over our coun. try, with the express undcretandini'. that a nnr. lion of their products be brought to tho Fair, to nun uiu ouauiius ui too uispiay. Tho great s iloon, and tho second story of the north wine', will, as usual, bo reserved for thn fabrics of Iho factory and workshop, made of cotton, woollen, silk, and all tho varioties of metals and oilier bubstancee, Iho fruits of (hat genius and invention which havo commanded the admiration of the world.

WORTHY OF REFLECTION. 'Can it bo that tho constant cuckoo cry of war! war i irom our southern borders is mainly I cca sionod by a number of contractors and specula. tors, who, haying divided tho profits accruing from tho Florida campaign, are now desirous of entering, into another si-ec on Mexican account 7 i ins may or may not bo the case, but the re quisition of one thousand men, only to guard the gulf of Mexico, whllu Iho regulars aro mar died on to the borders of the great North Amer ican desert, to overawe a parcel of half-dressed rowdies, who would rob their commander-in-chief on a review day, while passing down the lines, If ho had any thing about his per son sufficiently valuable to attract tho eyes of cupidity, savors, iu our opinion, of humbug.

Should his nowa bo of sufficient importance, wo shall issuo two postcripts and an extra at midnight, after all tho women and children havo gono (o sloop, and when it will bo too lato for the mails." Tlioso thoughts, and they aro really worthy of reflection, aro uttered by tho editor of the United Slates Journal, ono of Iho organs of the administration, and it strikes us that tho hints in tho quotation aro not without value. War, we havo ever said, is ono of tho greatest calam ities that can bofal a nation, and in a republic like ours whoso prosperity is dependent on husi ness, and whose existence is due to public vir tue, war h an ovil of incalculable extent. Tho Journal hints that tho Sempronii of the day havo in view some fat contracts. Thov wish to furnish some of the " munitions de voucne," or other requisites, upon which im. mouse profits aro to bo realized, and so they would willingly involvo the whole nation in dif ficulties.

Wo learn from tho Lexington Inquirer, ol yesterday, that on Tuesday night, some of Ihe people of that city, occupying no enviable posi tion in society, made a brutal attack upon sever al free negroes, boating them most cruelly and tarring and feathering one of them in the public square. Tho Inquirer speaks of the blacks, who wero sobrulally treated, as men who make an honest living for themselves and families, and ddtnean themselves peaceably and inoffen sively. Tho citizens of Loxington hold a public meet ing on the ! subject, at Iho court house, on Wed nesday, Benjamin Gratz in tho chair. The meeting passed strong resolutions against the outrages upon iho blacks, on iho preceding night, pledged themselves to aid tho city au thorities in detecting and bringing to punish ment tho authors of those outrages, and in 6tip. pressing all subsequent attempts of a similar character, protested against having those shame ful doings connected in any manner with the daylight proceedings of last .Monday, and resolv ed that ton men in cacli ward should volunteer and give in their names, who were to arm them solves and hold themselves ready to unito with tho city police at a moment's warning, and that Iho mayor should bo roouosted tn mlo,.i .nM. other measures as ho may deem necessary Louisiille Jour, VERMONT CENTRAL RAILROAD CO.

Wo aro happy in again congratulating our readers upon,another Whig triumph in Ver mont. Our returns are as yet incomplete, but sufficient to assure us of the election of a whig majority in both branches of the Legislature. The aggregate vote of tho Stale is materially less llian that of last year, and this falling off, we observe, is more gen erolly on ihe part of tlio Whigs than either of tho oilier parties. ThThaboliiton voto is, doubtless, tlightly increased. We shall not, therefore, bo disappointed should Mr. Sladc lack a few votes of an election by the peo ple His majority last year was but about sixteen hundred. Chittenden County, it will bo observed, adheres with unflinching fidelity to tlio faith of her fathers. Our Senate ticket is elected by a majority twice as large as the average for tho last ten years, and llirico larger than many anticipated on the present occasion ; while Ihe several towns have fully sustained their well-earned reputation for firmness and integrity. The failure to eloct in St. George results from mero local and personal consid erations.

The whigs of this town havo verv hand somely responded to our suggestion of giving uicir representative a " well-rounded major ity." His iiiHjuriiv over tho loco candiiltn was 104, and 48 over scattering and all. Of me scattering voles, lull one half wero cast by whigs : so the 104 may he set down as Iho fair whig majority of iho town. This is what wo have always claimed : hut our on. ponents have as uniformly contended that uur usuai majority was the result ofefTun and extraneous influences. "Only let the pcopie como up to the polls in their own way," said tlio locos, "and act in accordance with their real sentiments, and wo shoud carry tlie town by fifty." The experiment has been fairly tried. Neither party organ ized this year; but people came out and voted "on their own hook." And the result shows that tho usual efforts of the two parties amounts to nothing more than check-mating each other, without affecting tho result. Wo presume thereforo that there will be no more caviling about tho fatt of Burlinelon's beinir each of tho three hundred and sixty-five days ol Iho year a whig town. iinv. a. a. iNuuniOL,L,.

Mi. Stacti Whils reading in your paper the graphic description of Suwarrow's passage over the Olarus, I conld not help thinking oftho tendency of our travellers lo go over Ihe Atlantic to see tho won ders of Nature and Art in the Old World, leaving equally wonderful manifestations in Ihese depart mcnls behind them unseen and undescribrd. Those of us who do not travel, but depend upon information from others, nro less ocquiintcd wi.li tlio nntnral beauties of our own country nnd State, than with many of tlie cascades, rocky defiles nnd mountain tops of Italy and Switzerland. Permit inc. then. through Ihe medium of your paper, lo direct tho at tention of the admirers of Nature lo a passage, not through tho Alps, but through the Oretn Mountains of Vermont, which has not attracted Ihe attention of any witter, although it is ono of the greatest natural cuno-ities in Vermont, if not in New Ennland. Ful low me through this noss. and if vou do not find where the forces of nature have been exerted upon so magnificent a scale as they wero In llie elevation of ine Alps, you will find contrasts as striking and scenery equally wild and romantic. In fact, ibero is not a placo in Central Vermont that will not show as great exhibitions of human industry and persevctanem as any of tho mountainou parts of Europe. Follow up tho Winooski, the Oiler, or the Lamoille rallies, anu thriving villages wnl appear ol almost every turn of ihoslrcam. Look a litllo higher upon the hills, and they aro covered wilh flocks and herds or look ing slill higher, far up the mountain side mny be seen the little "clearing," surrounded with evergreen liui-l-cr, and a tidy log hou'e in tha centre. In this re gion, a few hours will lake ono from beautiful mead ows nnd luxuriant vegetation, to barren rocks and perennial Ice, by a transition as rapid as will be found in any country. Some weeks since, in company with several ladies snd gentlemen. I proposed lo take a trip tn the "Notch" of tho Green Mounlaius. a remarkable de pression about two miles south of tho Bummit of Mansfield. There was some he-itancy among Ihe ladies hen they learned that on their part it was on experiment, no lady having os yet ever passed the mountains at this point. In approaching the pars Hum nm viunuy 01 i.aite inampiain, mere is a con unucd ascent for twenty miles, but so uniform that on tievuiiuii 01 several nunarca icci is overcome in a carriage or upon horse-back, without scari'tly per ceiving it. We ore then at tbe beautiful site of Mr. Stephens, ot the very I ose of Mansfield. The pros pect from this point is imposing beyond description. The whole side of this mountain, which is more than a mile in length, rises before you, terminating at an elevation of over four thousand feel upon the "Vorlh ond South, in the bold rocky summit of the "Nose" and "Chin," whilo a broad belt of spruce timber ha ngs like a saddle upon tho depression between Ihem, ond runs far down into the basin 10 the West till it is finally lost in Iho lighter green of the beech and maple. Contrasted with this nnd the heavy-woodtd rejion north of it, is tho rocky Spur, which stands out in bold relief, and extends two thousand feculown, the .ortnwestern angle of the mountain. The iew ot the mountain is as varitd as the s'ates of the atmos pherc, nnd the inhabitants abojt its baso remarking this fact make use of it as ajrntiiml barometer, so that the old " (Irecn Mountain lioija" who hae resided in sight of it for 30 or -10 jcirr, wi'l prci'ict the chan ge in the weather as accurately as will the sailor boys upon the ocean from their baromuer. Fair weather will follow when the outlines of objects upon its sides arc distinctly visible, I ut when "old .Mans field puts bis cap on," which consists of n heavy ir- regular and silvery mass of clouds about his summit, men ram will surely be the result. Lcaving'Mr. Steven's for Iho Notch, we entered the woods and began ascendinu at the rate of frnm llirco to five hundred feet to the mile, which with the hcatora hot summer's day, and the logs snd under brush, rendered it quito laborious. Tho courso was Sjuibeast up the valley ofa small stream which lias its source in the very summit cf the IVoich. The timber, which was ot first beech and maple, was soon changnl for sprues or n largc'sire, with a foliago so dsnsc that we could see but a few rods about ls. As we arew near the Nouh, the valley diminished in width, till at last an al nipt mounlain on the right, and a perpendicular ledge on the leO, crowded us into the rivulet where it was necessary to wade over its I ebbly bottom, or jump from stone lo stone. For the last sixty rods the ascent was more rapid, over a confined and broken mass of rocks, under which tho rivulet disappears, and is ofterwards recognised by an occasional murmur coming up from the deep fis sures below. Aficr a f.itiguiog walk of more than two hours to gain a distance of two and a half miles, the mmniil of the ravine was attained. I say sum mil, for tho ravine stieicheJ completely over the Mountain in the form ofa semicircle, with the sum mit of the arc to the .orlh-eust and elevated about one thi)uand fiet aliovf its extremities upon the Kasl and West. From this place jou may look down to tho East or West, and up upon the "Voith or South, and nothing will meet the eye but evergreens and rocks, thrown together in strange confusion. The destcnt to the East is much more abrupt than theas centjiad been, into a valley below, which, turning to the South, brings directly before you, nnd lut a few rods distant, an immense perpendicular wall of rock, many hundred feel in height, lt denied almost im possible to accomplish this portion of tbe descent, which is over primitive boulders of mica shte. from a small size lo that of many hundred tons weight. These, at some former lime, had been detached from the overhanging ch.i; ond precipitated into the gorge below, filling it seventy feet above its original level. SomelarRC trees, with a few scattering bushes, ore now growing upon tho-c rocks, indicating that it must have occn many years, if not ages, since tbcv were detached from the cliff by the united agency of trieciuiiuii ana irosi, or Dy some convulsion of nature. The dampness of ihe fituation, with the extreme heat that prevails for a few hours in the middle of llie day, sustains a vigorous grow th of moss, which so covers all the rocks and cavities between them, that the de scent is not only difficult, but dangerous. Al every step it is nece-sary to stop to reel out a spot for the next siep, making it the labor or hair an hour to go a few hundrwl feet, .liter descending in this manner 75 feet, we arrived al tho "Ice House," as it is appro priately called by the mountaineer, for so excluded are the ra-s or the sun that solid deposits of ice may be round in midsummer. This is a remarkable cave formed by an immense rock SO reel in length, which fell in such a manner, that while its lower edge rests u.on the rocks, uppT ln upon llin rtifl thus forming a roof inclined at nn angle of forlv-live da. grers with tbe floor. It can be entered from the west over a floor of loose stones, but descending ns you enter, you soon arrive at a large rock 15 feet in height, which blocks up the Eastern entrance, and makes il difficult to pass u ithoui the assistance of ropes or lad ders. When within this cave one h as nn almost pain ml reeling of insecurity at beholding a roof of many tons weight supported by such seeming unstable pil lars. From the " I if House," it is still down into a narrow vale through whieh anoiher stream runs to the East. A short distance farther and this stream makes a broken fall or nearly 100 ft. inio a second vale through whieh it courses, ond finally finds its way to Ihe allies below. The formidable barrier of rocLs which first came into view at the summit,, continues Us course? parallel to tho stream for one-fourth of a mile, wbero il assumes the still more threatening as pect of an overhanging clill'of 12C0 ft. high, and has projected a long line or huge rocks at its base in Ihe valley below. If I should indulge in geological speculations as lo Iheorigin of this notch over the mountain,! could easily imagine that wl.en the forces were in operation thai raited Mansfield to its present elevation, there was a vast fissure created in the cru.t of the earth at that point. We have only then lo.suppoie thai these forces were moro efficient unticr Mansfield than South of it, to have Ihe mountain elevated while that South of the fissure remained behind. The action cf water then wore off and deepened ihis fissure and some sub sequent convulsion rolled in the rocks which render its present passage so difficult. The inhabitants ol this ex tensive basin lo Ihe east ol Mansfield have long had their eyes upon Ihis pats at a feasible and more direct route to Ibe waters of Lake Champlain. To effect this object they have Iways been compelled to past the mountiint br the tiicuilous counts ol WjnoxwU river upon the south, or tho Lamoille on the north. About 40 years tinea they actually worked a road through iho pats, but in Ihcir dread of the rocks In Ihe vicinity of Ihe "Ic House," they went so high upon the mountain as to render their road impastablc. I have learned, howev. er, that they havo recently had a new route surveyed which pas-cs directly through Ihe "Notch," which irever completed, will make one or Ihe most grand and imposing roads in Now England, and open the ws tot many a visitor to tho remarkable natural beauties or Ihis region. COMMON SCHOOLS. It will bo observed, by reference to anoth er column, that Dr. Palmer proposes to lec ture on this subject at tho Court House, Mis evening. Our schools deserve moro thought and aclivo effort than has been bestowed upon them for years past, and wo are happy to find a man of Dr. P.'s standing and la. onts devoting himself to tho subject. Wo havo listened to him with much satisfaction on a former occasion, and wo doulit not our readers generally will find themselves enter taiocd and instructed. The Magnetic Telegraph through Ner Jersey will bo completed by the 1st of De cember, lt will also bo completed from Baltimore to Philadelphia in November. These are the calculations j if ihey are ful filled, there will be a continuous line of Tel egraph from Washington to New York by tho time Congress assembles. The impor tant business of the next session will be re ported in Now York, by this arrangement, in fewer hours after its transpiration,! when it has heretofore taken days for it to reach us by Mail or Express. We can scarcely realise this thing. It takes one'i breath away to think of such rapid transmis sion of intelligence. Tho idea of thought, news of tho last importance, official des patches, &c. &c, flashing, quick as light ning, hundieds of miles over the country, from station to station, and from cily to city, is one that makes tlio mind stagger a little.

The Tariff and War If a war wilh Mexico ensues, remarks Iho Richmond Whig wilh equal truth and force, it will in crease the annual expenses of tho Govern ment not less certainly than 20 millions of dollars. Already wo may anticipate an immenso augmentation of expenditures, in preparation, in the creation and transmission of munitions of war to the frontiers, in the equipment and marching of troops, and in lliu now direction given to Naval operalions.
