Some three weeks ago we printed a circular endorsed by the New Orleans and other cotton exchanges, urging planters to cover their cotton well and to use not less than two-pound bagging. This hns occasioned some talk and criticism by the planters. They urge that It makes but little difference how much care and attention they give their cot ton in baling and putting (ton the market in good condition; thatafter it Jis brought to town irter&ulledt psaraplea nd bored until there is little ? of the bagging left Ion some bales-!arid Uhat this is the 'cause of " the damaged and Tagged condition in which- it . reaches foreign ports. , Pr The H.i:bau, thinks there : la ""some oanse for Ibis complaintby the planters and tluy should not be- held, respohsi-ble for all the bad looks about aTbale ol cotton after it has passed through a half dozen different hands. There la' noth lug of the same yaliie as a bale of cotton that receives as- rough treatment, and it la astonishing that it holds its orn so well. I: is left out in all kinds of weather, rolled through the muddiest and dirtiest of places, is pulled "and haulm about bv the most careless of handlers, who have no more regard for the bagging and ties than they do tor the dirt awl mud that sticks to it. There is no doubt bu. what a good dal of thi-t rough handling could avoided and the cotton made to present a better and more marketable appear-anee. ft para to handle any article Of commerce oarefuHy. and there is nothing that will bring better returns for careful handling than cotton. Let farmers, merchant and buyers bear these facts In mind and there will bono cause for complaint from the cotton exchanges, who are oftentimes too quick to find fault. At the beginning of the season is the best time to start theaereforms, and Yazoo City, always a leader in good mores, should set the pace. Business Hea'a Heetlng. Mr. F. B. Bowes. General Freight Agent; Mr, W. M. Rhett, Assistant General Freight agent; Mr. W. H. Hays. Traveling Freight Agent, and Mr. Ij. F. Montgomery. Traveling Pas senger Agent or the Illinois central Railroad, arrived in Yazoo City yester day morning in Mr. Bowes private ear. Messrs. Bowes, Rhett and Hays came to meet a committee of cotton. factors and merchants appointed by the Yazoo Citv Cotton Exchange to arrangerates on cotton to and from Yazoo City. . The meeting was held yesterday morning at 10:30 o'clock, but little was accomplished. -The railroad officials agreed to make a reduetion of 15 cents a bale on compressed cotton to New Orleans, taking under advisement the proposition to give lower rates on cotton to be shipped rrom adjacent towns to Yazoo City. They also thought that a change in the schedule of the passenger train going South could be made making the leaying time from Yazoo Citv S o'clock p.nr, instead of 3 :20, as at present. This would give the merchants, cotton men and banks more time to finish up their mails, but. it would be an .inconvenience to those who come to Yazoo City to do their trading, and it would also destroy the connection at Jackson with the train going East over the V. & M. Railroad. Yazoo City is entitled to the very lowest rates that can be secured, and the Hkbalo trusts that our business men will not let up until they secure them Any change in the schedule should be well considered before ft is made, as we cannot afford to injure the large trade we now get from the Southern portion of the county.

We wish Hawthorn had never written that his heart wos not large enough to include anything bevoud New England, and we regret that so many in Boston seem to act a3 if the world ended when the limits of Massachusetts were reached. It is now a su perceded astronomy that thinks the sun is the center of the Universe, important though it be as a local center. Of course no one, unless running from the law, would visit Boston without crossing the Charles into Cambridge in search of Harvard College. The famous institution has changed in exterior verv little from what it 'vas in 1878, at least to a superficial observer.
