tiality shown generally during the two days

OVU GH.V1N fltOSlTLT.
From i very quarter ot tbo Union comes up
tho welcome intelligence that the. crops of
wheat, rye, barley and corn promise well.
In Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Indiana, Ohio,
and other Western Slates, this year's har
vest will be unprecedented, according to all
accounls. Throughout New England, New
York, and our own Commonwealth, the
prospect ot full crops is excellent, whilo in
the South a larger harvest is anticipated
than in any previous year, owing to the
faot that more ground has been taken up
In sowing and planting than at any other
period in its history. This is good news
for all, aod especially for the poor muri
and bis family, and there will exist no rea
son, tho approaching fall and winter, for
the exorbitant prices which have prevailed
for the past few years. Providence, in
promising us a bountiful harvest, seems to
frown upon and threaten the overthrow of
the unprincipled speculators, who have
hitherto fattened upon the necessities ot
their fellow men .
Tbo Frlzo Kliitr Imbroglio at St.
Tom Allan says that he shall take no
notice of McCoole's challenge to fight again
near St. Louis, but will go three hundred
miles east, say some wherein Kentucky;
or be would prefer ;Cnnada, and mate
bim for $5,000, or uny other sum lie desires.
McCo'ole is shid to be waiting to fight bim
away from St. Leuif, or better still, in a
room with only a few friends of each party
as witnesses. MoCoulo still believes thut he
can whip Allen. McKinney the refene,
publishes another statement in which he re
peats bis decision, and says thut whilo com
ing homo on the boat, Sherman Thurston
and Billy Carroll, friends ot Allen, offered
'him money to decido in Allen's favor. The
stake money has not been given up and it
is alleged it will not be, until matters ore
arranged to tho satisfaction of all
parties. - Quite n number of outsliders who
bet on McCoole, declino to receive stakes
put up, bolievyig that jtho referee's
decision was unfair. Allen eays ho wil
light Galla;liur any place nwuy from St.
Louis, on a wager ul $2,500 or $1,500.
