The sugar crop.

--We are happy to learn that should the season continue propitious, and no premature frosts damage the crop, the sugar production of the South will, in all probability amount to five hundred thousand hogsheads, which is eighty thousand more than was ever produced before; two hundred and fifty thousand more than the consumption of the Southern States, and very little short of the entire consumption of the old Union. Until Lincoln can blockade the favor of Heaven and the fruits of the earth, the South can laugh his fleets and armies to scorn.
