We learn from the Augusta Constitutionalist that the Granitevile Factory has commenced the manufacture of cotton yarn for making socks and stockings the machinery for the purpose having been recently imported from England. The clipper ship R. B. Forbes, from a Northern port bound South, was spoken September 7th, about five hundred miles west of Madeira, by a vessel which has reached a Southern port.
