Starving out.

--The crop of wheat in the Valley of Virginia, from all that we have seen and heard, will be decidedly the best that has been harvested for the last ten years. It not only stands uncommonly thick upon the ground, but it is of a very superior quality. The corn, owing to a very wet spring, is backward; but an unusual quantity has been planted, and, with a continued good season, a very heavy yield may be anticipated. The idea of starving out the South is amusing. After supplying the wants of all our people, we would have sufficient left to feed the half-starved, lantern-jawed hyenas of the North, with such prodigality as to kill them all in six months with apoplexy.--Winchester Republican.
