It would, to be sure, bo at unwise as untrue i to say that thure are no blighted spots lu our wide territorial fields. The drought which prevailed in the early part ef the voason, was in some suctions prolonged until tho hopes of the farmer, in respect to his wheat, were out off; but in many of these sections, as In Marylaud for instance. American enterprise brought tho hoe where the barrow had already been, and in place of sickly and stunted wheat and kindred grains, a vigorous growth of iuaUd was soon seen sendlug its promising shoots upward. as if in derision pf the demon blight who seemed thus foiled In the attempt to cut short the hopes of the tiller of the soil. We hare, of late, hud a most delightful alternation of rain aud sunshine; and except from confirmed grumblers, we have good accounts of the effect which has been nroduced uoon the fluid* of m?l??

From the Eastern States we have the mo*t cheering intelligence. Although the season was Romewhat back- , ward, yet the requisite rain and sunshine came at laat and the market* noon began to give the moat palpable evidence of the manner in which vegetation waa making up fir it* long torpor. The fruit crop, which i* looked to with cousideruble anxiety, now promise* unusually well, and accounts state that the yield of the present year bid* fair to double that of any one of several previous years. With reference to grain, it is urged with great ruasonableneas. that even if gome field* should t urn out but poorly on account of the lateness of the season, yet thA high price of all the varieties of corn ha* had the effect to induoe greater rare in the culture, and more extensive sowing, so that the result very likely will be, what some papers confidently predict, that tho coming harvest will yield a greater quantity of breadstuff* than that section ho* over beforo produced in one season. Where the returns are likely to romnnerate him, your Eastern man, merchant, farmer, or mechanic, is not likely to neglect the use of the uocessary appliances to ensure success.

Lung lnUu<t, with ?u army of scientific farmers to bring out h?ir resources, presents ut the present t.un>, such a surface, as causes expressions ef admiration from travellers. who say that at a low estimate the surface sown with grain anil planted with vegetables of various dokcrlplions, daring the present season, doubles that of former years, The highest culture wilt he practised thrum hout. as has been doua already, so far as requisite, manures of eriry description have boeu freely bestowed, quantities having been taken by railroad from this city to a distance ot nearly so hundred miles From Albany and vicinity the utust favorable accouuts are received Not only is tb? grain represented as presenting a flue appearance but the grass Is also luxuriuot. and the potoi ox vines have the healthful deep green color which gives evldeuce that, as yet, at any rale, disease has not commenced its work upou their roots in this viciuity also, as well as many other counties ot the Mate, hundleiis of acres of land havu not before been cultivated for a grain crop, have this year beeu planted with corn, 'i he >al crop, which Is not a bad index to the others, looks remarkably fine, 'i h? western part of the Mate also promises to do its share towards supplying the empty granaries of the destitute from her owu overflowing storehouses. New Jersey and Delaware will do their share of producing A few weeks since there was considerable fesr expr* sscd as to tiie fatuof grain crops in New Jersuy, but the late refreshing rains have had the elfect to dispel such gloomy apprehensions, and better still, to start vegetation, so that an almost immediate elfect was produced in the butter market, where prices have fallen some seven or eight cents on the pound The farmers are most active, and the earth, or so much of it as fulls withiu the boundaries of the good Slute of Mew Jersey, will he taxed to Its utmost, as for instance, ' One man who usually plants live acres of potatoes has put in sixteen; another has doubled his usual quantity of whent. and a third has improved four or live times the usual quantity of corn ground." Indeed wo find a statement to the effect, that the surface of gTound in New Jersey, planted this year with corn, exoecds that of last year by one hundred thousand acres, which, at a low estimate, ought to yield four millions of husliels, more than equal t to Olie-ffltoellth of the whole lleflrteni-v of Ihe nuluU crop in Irelaud, for 1H46. This, a* an excess over lostyeiir , will be an important item, especially when it i* consider- t ed, that at the opening of navigation this year, New t Jersey, altliough so near to our market, had an immeuse , surplus of wheat on hand. . Pennsylvania also.sends a cheering note; while her swar- _ thyniinersuredelvingsuccessfullyaiuongthe inlncrul rich. i. csul her thousands ot underground chumbers.their breth- _ run of the upper regions are handsomely rewarded for their labors upon the soil. The backwardness of the season was severely felt in some parts of Pennsylvania, and the 1 winter crops were many ot them ruined' by the severity r to which Ihey were exposed before the spring fairly ' opened, hut the season at length became more propitious, " aud the larmers went to work with a will. The winter '* killed grain eas succeeded hy summe r grain, and the 11 prospect of a slim harvest stimulated farmers to the use '3 of every spare acre of ground; the consequence will be that Pennsylvania will, at least, yield an nverage crop. ' Many promise much more for her. Accounts from Ohio are so contradictory that it is ' difilsult to judge satisfactorily as to what result harvest {' time will show. 'J he "bulla'' end the "bears" are not all caged In Wall street, and if we are not mistaken we can distinguish thsir footprints in some of the correspondence from the west. We must, however, say that the favorable statements seem to be less studied than the others; some may construe this Into a want of accuracy, while they give the croakers credit for speak- 1 ing from accurate knowledge upon the suhjoct. Wo ? think there is an apparent attempt to put on a poor face. It should be remarked, that in all these accounts the * wheat crop alona is the subject of remark, and even of " this, it is said that the bottom lands promise, an ahun- K duutyield, although the ridge lands will not yield so ' well. There are some indications, which give a decided- " ly favorable coloring to the future; among these we may tl mention that we have accounts of great quantities of K1 strawberries being gathered. Now weather that will 'I ripen strawberries must, we should think, bring forward r' graiu crops, and if the farmers of Ohio are willing to work their lands, spring grains may be cultivated with 1' great success We regret that we have such contradie.- * tory accounts from Ohio, the young giant of the * that state is aptly termed. In order that our readers w may judge as wellas ourselves of the prospects there, we u will give u sketch of some of the statements received within a few days. Kirat comes an artiele giving an ac- tl count of a terrible hail storm in Preble county .where the si hail-stones that fell were as large es hens eggs. This u terrible storm not only cut down whole fields of grain ri tnd orchards of fruit, but it broke windows and killed [>igs and geese. This, to say the least, looks somewhat h BToakish. The next artiele begins with a statement that v< -the wheat in the bottom lands of that State promise an T abundant yield, but that the erops on the ridges will be ^ poor;" ana soda with, "Ohio will produce less wheat this *i fear than last " The writer gives no argument to sus- t> ain the hut proposition, udN'ki the first sentence, which * re quote, be construed into such an argument We Have next a paragraph from a writer who bad just re] b turned from a tour through some of the towns north of Newark, (where, it seems, the land is high.) who says the wheat fields present a sorry sight, not oue being visible which was not badly spotted and very thin He condudes with, ''unless the low lauds de better, there will cot be half a crop in this county, perhaps not a fourth ' (l rhe low lauds, it will be remembered, are said to "promise an abundant yield.'' We next hear from McCon- " ueisvills, and the writer says :?"Kroui personal observa- tr tion we are satisfied that there is a prospect of a fair crop if wheat In our county this season, ibo croaking of some rolks to the contrary notwithstanding.'' The next in , turn is a very gloomy account of the effects of 'freer ing out" which the wheat crop in the neighborhood of i arrolltnn lias experienced, the writer arriving at the conclusion that there will not be one fourth the quan- " tity of wheat harvested in Carroll oouuty this season Cf that there was last year We have next the authority *' if the Stall Journal for the following ?"Ad observing ' dtixeu of Columbus, who has recently returned from a .l. pretty extensive journeying among the counties between the scioto and Miami, authorisus us to say that the 1' wheat crops look flue, and promise a full average yield, with h n ordinary season from now until harvest."

Wisconsin, although riie sent in hut gloomy accoUDt* in the oarly part of the season, has now recovered herself, and we hive a good account of her wbaat crops throughout is largo part of the Territory. The number of acres sown with wheat greatly exceeds that of last year. The blight reached the southern {svrtlon of llacine and Walworth counties, hut all through the northern, middle, and westorn sections, the standing grain presents a luxuriant appearance; and It Is confidently expected that the surplus for export will greatly exceed that of any former year. Last year's export from the Territory was something over half a million of bushels. The Wisconsin Stntintl says :?" There can ho little doubt that the ex port or wheat and flour from Wisconsin for the present year will reach a million bushels." The wheat crop iu some parts of Maryland has been I materially injured by the provaleuco of a long drouth | which tiPceciicd In the ?" *!? ""??* ? has lately fallen in great abundance, but it waa too late to restore tho wheat, and hut a light yield can be exported from many of the fields. This is not, however, true of the whole State. In Carroll county, the wheat has improved greatly, and now promises to fill well. Tho rye crop 1* good. It is yet too early to predict how the Indian corn will come out. 'J'hla (the corn) crop will be one of great importance to Maryland this year, as many jf her tobacco fields are, tbis year, planted with it. Virginia promises to do Iter sham towards feeding the hungry during the coming year. Some weeks tgo, there was considerable complaint and npprehensiou 'xpressed as to the result of the then prevailing drouth Now. however, a line growing season cheers the hearts of be planters in the Old Dominion, and the best results 1 promise to rewnrd the agriculturalists. North Carolina will not, probably, have a very large mrpius of wheat, unless matters very soon change fur .lie better. The most r< liable inf irmation we have, is to .he effect, that wheat sowu in good time, and ou first 'ate land, will make a good crop; but aa a great deal of lie wheat in that State is either sown too late, or on old [round, the prospect is that there wiU not be mora tbau inough for borne consumption, if there is sufficient for hat. Indian corn is also said to present rather an unirotuising appearance in North Carolina. In South Carolina the wheat Is doing well. The early Irought was felt here, and some fields were entirely runed before the the late rains fell, but an abundant harest Is. from present appearances, ouly a reasonable execution in most parts of the Stale. In fact, the harvest tas already commenced in soma districts, and the new float has been taken to market. in jeargia the crop of wheat is not expected to come ip to thn average mark Tho prospects for a good yield >f Indian corn are not at present very Haltering, but It s useless to ssy anything about that grain yet there is itill time uuough for a good crop to mature before barrust time.
