The crops.

--In consequence of the super abundant yield of the wheat crop, this staple has fallen nearly fifty per cent in value, and it is thought that the price will not exceed seventy five or eighty cents a bushel. Harvesting in this section is progressing rapidly, and we presume will close this week. The quality of grain is very superior.

The oat and corn crops are exceedingly promising — indeed we have rarely seen so propitious and productive a season. Providence evidently smiles at Lincoln's intention of starving us out.-- Fredericksburg Recorder of Friday.
