Crop in the South.

A gentleman from Georgia, who arrived in this only within the last two days, informs us that the and vegetable crops in that State, and the route to Richmond, promise to be the soon ever known in those districts. In lower Alabama. Georgia and South Carolina, the corn is already matured, and the work of gathering the ladder has been commenced. An unusually breath of land has been planted in potatoes and every effort is being made to raise and save all the bacon possible. Very little cotton planted anywhere in the South.

A hundred spinning-wheels and domestic looms now in motion where one had been used before the women are busily engaged in knitting socks and preparing winter clothing for friends in the army while the old men say they will wear cotton and at by the fire. No sacrifice is so great that they do not readily submit to it; and but for the hearties speculator, the Government and patriotic men and women of the land would find but little difficulty in clothing and feeding the army.
