The reported burning of cotton.

--The Charleston Courier says:

‘ We deem it due to later and more accurate information to correct the reports which first reached the city concerning the amount of cotton opened to the plundering invaders and hireling pillagers. Late reports received from planters and residents acquainted with the facts of the case, state that very little, if any, cotton will be found in bales and storehouses, nearly all the growing crop being in seed — a very unusual fact for this season. Some of the crops in the field will be destroyed, and some we know have been destroyed.
