CORN. Pioipood of tlio Crop* OHAnnA, HI., May 31,1873. "Kb the Editor of The Chicago Tribune: Bib 1 I notice, in your Ibbuo of yesterday, an Extract from a' letter from Eureka, which charges Homebody with trying to got up a scare on corn. Having expressed an opinion in your columns yesterday, I will say a few words more on tho eubjoot. . A grain-dealer, on reading tho said extract, ex claimed, in my hearing t “I’ll bet that follow has sold short I” Howovor that may bo, I pre sume ho may have told very nearly tho truth so lor as his locality is concerned (though it may bo slightly colored by bis manner of expressing it), ns Eureka is located in a high-rolling, well drained section 5 but tho writer will not claim that Eureka furnishes tho entire corn-supply. • There is no doubt hut a largo portion of tho BQarketablo com Is still in tho hands of tho farm ers; and, If wo ore to have a short orop of com, I trust it will remain with them until they realize tho natural and inevitable appreciation of Values resulting therefrom. Tho farmers are the ones who most need, and oro best entitled to, any advance in prices that may result from any shortage, as they will bo tho loading suffer ore from failure of crops, and aro heavily in debt for what they have on hand. It is for tho boat good of all classes that tho farmers roailzo all they can. Mechanics, merchants, and dealers of oil kinds, ore staggering under, tho burden of carrying thorn; and, if they realize bettor prices, they can pay moro debts, and all kinds of business will bo proportionately relieved; while, if, through any Influence, tho farmers are induced to dispose or their surplus, aud the ad vance accrues to tho dealers and speculators, the benefits to business generally and the State will bo comparatively small. Ido not say tbot the few encouraging reports from different sec tions oro prompted. by dealers to got up a scare* among farmers to induce them to sell at low figures,but Ido hope that will not bo the result, and I am free to say that I prefer that tho farm ers should realize tho advance, if any occurs. Thoro may he 60,000,000 bushels of corn to como to market. 'lf so, every cent per bushel advance moans $500,000; and tho most direct way to scatter it to all classes Is to lot it go to tho farmer Srat. So I ndviso tho farmers to hold on to their corn for tho present. But to tho point at issuo: Our Town-Assessor informed mo yesterday that, in his opinion, loss than half of tho pro- Eosed corn-laud is plowed at this date. Ho nos ad a good chance to ascertain tho actual situa tion. If I wished to show up tho darkest side. I could give many names of good farmers who ' havo just begun to plow for corn ; for instance, last ■Wednesday, a well-to-do farmer told mo ho wished to plant 150 acres of com. but had just begun to plow that morning (the 28th). A friend told mo of ouo of bis neighbors who planted 200 acres in corn last year. and ho had not turned a furrow up to lost Tuesday. . A reliable man from an adjoining township told mo yesterday that not moro than ouo aero in twenty was planted in that township ; and such cases could bo given ad libitum. Doubtless tho farmers see tho darkest side 5 things will turnout somewhat bettor than they anticipated, for many aro fearing a total failure ; but, at the best, they have reason to fuel blue. A gentleman from this place took a littlo trip this week, and ho reports, from Chicago to To lono, and around to Bloomington, and from Cho noa to the Btato lino, on tho T„ P. A W. Bail road, everything is. backward; pends are full; old stalks standing in the fields; but a small portion of tbo laud plowed, Ac. This Includes a tract of country equal to about 100 luilca square, or 10,000 squ&ro miles out of tbo most produc tive portion of tho groat corn-bolt. From At lanta to Ghonoa, on the Alton A St. Louis Bail road, bo reports the condition as much bettor, ond prospects fair; com nearly all planted, Ao.; but, in order to a fair estimate of tho situation, one idea should bo homo in mind, to-wit: tho lands that can’t bo planted until very late. If at all, aro those that give tbo largest yield, and hence tbo average will bo greatly reduced. I estimate that the aggregate crop may behalf that of last year, with favorable weather; but can wo expect everything favorable ? Yesterday wo bad several hours’ bard rain, clearing off cold, with quite a frost ibis morning. With tho ground so lull of wntor, a very littlo rain stops work, and weeds will grow whether com docs or not. , 6nr prairies will stand dry weather; I have known thirty bushels per acre grown without any rain from planting time to harvest; but too much rain causes entire failures, and, If wo have Dot started in well for a wot season, I am not a judge. Lot us consider for a moment what a half-crop of corn moans in Illinois. In 1870 I saw an estimate in The Tribune (from the United States Statistics, I think) placing the corn-crop of Illinois for that year at 250,000,000 bushels. In a recent issue The Tribune puts the crop of 1872 at 200,000,000. I had thought the crop of 1872 about the same ns that of 1870, but smaller thou 1871. But, putting the crop (average of three years) at 200,000.000 bushels per annum, half a crop moans 100,000,000 bushels. I estimate tho amount of our surplus for mar ket (over what is fed at homo) to ho about one fourth to ono-third tho wbolo crop. Calling it one-third, wo shall have consumed at homo 133,- 000,000 bushels, and had for sale 67,000,000 bushels, per annum. With half a crop for tho coming season, wo should need to draw on our surplus now on hand for 83,000.000 bushels, leaving 0n1y*33,000,000 or 84,000,000 bushels, for market for this year and next; or, in other words, wo shall have 100,000,000 bushels of oorn loss to market in tho next two years than wo have marketed during tho past two years. Tho impression obtains generally that wo liavo boon gradually accumulating tho surplus for threo years past, aud that wo have much more com on hand than one year ago. 1 think this is a mistake. There are a few lots of old com on hand, but I can find but very few farm ers who report as much com on hand as a year ago. > A few days of this cold weather, and com will rot in the ground. A continuation of wet weather, and tho crop cannot bo cultivated. Only with the most favroablo weather oan wo expect oven half as much ns tho average for tho three past years. So I repeat tho advice to farmers: Hold your corn till you got what it cost you to raiso it. Iroquois. ‘ BILLIARD EXHIBITION. A fow hours were spout Tory pleasantly at Foley's, last evening, hy a number of ladies and gentlemen who were invited to witness a private exhibition of billiards by Übassy. A game of SOO points French caroms was played between him and George Blossou, tho latter receiving tho odds of 200. Tho skillful Frenchman was in his best mood, as tho following remarkable score Will show: ' Udasbt—B, 2, 12, 6, 3, CO, 6, 77, 0, 0, 13, 15, 1, 3, S, 0, 14, 39, 6, 41, 61, 0, 9, 37. Total, 410.

At tho close of tho game, Übassy favored thq company with several wonderful fancy shots, such as making the ball describe the outlines of •a’oockod hat, the outlines of a smokiug-pipo, and the figure eight. His most astonishing shot Was to carom on a ball under tho table, which ho accomplished almost at tho first attempt. Mr; Abo Bassford closed tho exhibition by making a number of difficult caroms with his fingers. EXAMINATION FOR STATE CERTIFICATES. £tate of Illinois, Department op Education,!

Quebec {May 28) lUepatch to the fioston Otobe . . For tho past few days, tho Blvor Bt, Lawrence has been crowded with timber broken adrift from various places; and on the Bivcr St. Maurice two saw-mills, belonging to Baptists A Sons, havo boon swept away by the groat floods that have prevailed since Saturday. In tho early para of May, it was feared that there would bo a scarcity of water for driving, but ono of tho St. Maurice lumbermen, Mr. Joseph Boynar, came down from an exploring tour in tho upper portion of tho territory immediately after tbo ice shoved from tho main river, and reported tbo largo lakes still covered with ice, tho water rising slowly, and about throo foot of snow still in the woods. 'Ton days later, tho river had risen to a high pitch, but bad gouo down considerably before the recent heavy rains. On Saturday night, an other rise lu tbo river took place. At 0 o’clock on Sunday morning, tho Government boom in tho easterly channel was broken by tho impetu ous current, and some hours later tho guldo boom In tho westerly channel snapped asunder. Tbo Government Superintendent of tbo works, with a largo gang of mon, worked hard to re pair tho damage, nut without result, and noth ing conld stand against tho rushing current, and tho timber poured into tho St. Lawrence in a continuous stream. Tho quantity of timber gone adrift will probably not fall short of 100.000 logs. Tho water-mill of Messrs. George Baptist A Sons, situated at Lcs Grafs, about 16 miles up tho St. Maurice,, was swept away by tho raging waters, and tho mill booms of tho same firm, at their steam mill, near the mouth of tho river, shared the same fate. In addition to the Messrs. Baptist, the following firms will suffer from this accident: G. B. Hall, St. Maurice Lumber and Land Com pany, Stoddards, Bitohio A Gull, and a few others la a loss extent. Tho booms in tho mid dle channel still hold fast. They contain about 150.000 logs, and it is believed that tboy will stand tbo pressure, although tho timber is com ing down very fast. Tho latest advices from Throe Bivors say that tho water still continues very high. -Owing to tho rapid current on tho St. Maurice, 1 tho booms cannot bo relayed, and tho logs aro running out steadily by tbo oast and west chan nels. The booms in tho centre channel still hold fast; ami, as they havo stood tho enormous pressure so long, they may bo considered safe. The lumbermen are doing all in their power to save tbo drift logs. Steamers and small boats, with largo gangs of men, are working hard &U along tho St. Lawrence below Throo Bivors ; a great many logs will also bo saved by tho people on both sides of the river. It is reported that the Government timber slide at Shawinignn. Falls has boon carried away. The scone at Qrais vil lagers said to bo wild in the extreme. Tho river has cut out a now channel, some distance inland, forming an island which takes In tho entire vil lage and some acres of laud to tho westward.. Thousands of logs floated down the Bt. Law rence, past Quebec, to-day. MARKETS BY TELEGRAPH. Tho New York Produce market. New York, May 31.—Cotton—Quiet; middling up land, I9#c.

Aldan?, N, Y., Juno I.—Beeves— As before inti mated, this week’s market has boon very unfavorable to dealers, Western buyers and shippers more particu larly. The market opened quietly on Thursday, with a moderate attendance of local buyers and butchers, who demanded, and finally obtained, a full >£o per lb live weight reduction from tho ruling prices of last week. Notwithstanding tho state of tho market, a moderate amount of trade was done, tho sales of tho day amounting to 1,025 head. Reports from Buffalo and Chicago were very unfavorable, and dealers, know ing that tho supply of stock would be ample,' operated strongly la causing holders to more readily make concessions. Ou tho following day also the attendance was moderate, and solos con siderably smaller than on that day last weak. No Im provement in prices was manifested, but, on tho con trary, prices still further docllucd. On Saturday tho attendance of Now York and Brighton dealers was good, but the market ruled dull. Buyers were firm lu demanding largo concessions, and finally succeeded in breaking down tho market, obtaining cattle in somo instances at a reduction of from H to per lb. From tho opening day tho market has ruled irregular, and dosed today much depressed. Tho receipts for tho week aro 9,690 bead, about 18 car-loads larger thau receipts last week.
