Weather and crops in Alabama.
--A correspondent, writing from Tuskegee, Ala.
, July 5th, gives the subjoined cheering intelligence:
What a glorious Fourth of July was yesterday!
The merciful heavens celebrated it by sending down the most gentle and refreshing showers I ever beheld.
There were no thunder and lightning, but showers for the whole day and the following night.
The ground is thoroughly wet, and the farmers are cheerful and happy.
The forward corn is now safe.
I have no doubt of the universality of this rain in the Southern Confederacy.
With the wheat crop, if it was not to rain another drop on the corn crop, there would be enough raised in the Cotton States
to bread them and the armies.
God be praised!
We shall not be "starved out" by the heartless Pacha at Washington
The cotton is very promising.
