It is true, as we have often heretofore shown, that the taste for Louisiana sugars is mainly in the free Western States, where the great market for them was, before the Revolution, found; but now the people in the planting States, having no choice, will very soon acquire a liking for them, and their price in these hard times will commend them to favor over the refined or partially refined, with the great body of consumers. If this war continues through the Presidential term of Lincoln, as we very unwillingly are constrained to believe, so far as the permanent interests of the sugar grower are involved, he will be the gainer; for the taste for his product existing already in the West, and rendered more craving from deprivation, and a similar taste being created by the war in those Confederate States where refined sugars were mainly used previously, it follows conclusively that he will have an enlarged field to supply, and a choice of markets for customers.

Sugar and the sugar question.[from the N. O. True Delta, October 17.] The outside world, particularly of Europe, has long been sneering at America as the land of brag, of boast, of bounce, and braggadocio par excellence. An American, or Yankee representation rather, is with them the synonym of the stupendous of colloquial romance, and this, too, quite as much in matters adverse to our interests as in those which conduce to our advantage. Is there not strong grounds for believing that this opinion is more just than many others that strangers have formed and expressed of us and our institutions? Does not the very caption to this article suggest to the mind of every reader the proof that a cavalling or censorious commentator upon our habits and manners would seek to corroborate the charge he in spitefulness, or envy, or moroseness might advance? For three months past here at home in Louisiana, every sugar planter was discontented unless we sent over the world the most exaggerate

zing as if daybreak would never come. Well, the period of gathering the harvest of sweets has come, and now, after preparing the world to expect sugar for the taking away, it is discovered that the yield is deficient, that the tall rank, green cane, twelve feet from root to top, is deficient in crystallizable matter, and that the most mature and promising to the eye falls short of furnishing, in good product, six hundred pounds to the acre! The whole crop, if a nipping frost keeps off to Christmas, may be above the average of the last three years--we hope it may even exceed that — but beyond that no excess can with confidence be looked for, nor can any safe guide of public opinion prudently promise more. The evil, however, has been done, and done, too, by the planters themselves. They will force the world to believe that their crop is worth only one-half what it should bring them; and human folly certainly cannot be so blind as to expect in such cases not to be believed. It only
