McColl, S. Sept. 20, '87. A Protest From ''Farm2r' Mr. Editor: I notice in your issue of the 9th an article beaded the "Concord Cotton Market," and a copy of tbe same rules or laws was banded me in' Charlotte adopted by the Concord merchants in tbe deduction in price of cotton in bales weighing less than four bu'ndrod pound, organ ized to compel the farmers tod put up heavier bale3 or pay the! freight On the same, and under said rules or law the small far mer that is not in the babit of raising but little cotton, say under four hundred pounds, must either not raise any at all or subject himself to a deduction in the price or go and buy more cotton to make bis bale weigh four hundred dounds for the conyenience and saving of the buyers.

Now, is this fair? Are not our cotton buyers a little too fast in passing laws? Would it not be better for them to consult with tbe farmers and adopt such rules as would be agreeable with botli buyers and sellers? It is a poor rule that will not work two ways. Let us reason in this way. Say that we will adducent to tbe price of tbe cotton when tbe bale weighs six houndred pound and per pound when it weighs'GoO pounds and over. Then the farmers will submit to the deduction that the propose to impose upon us. Gentlemen, you must tote fair in this matter, and I- would suggest tbat it would be better for tbe buyers and sellers to work to the interest of each other.

I think it would be much better for both par ties. If not, the farming class" of people will be compelled to organize and protect all such impo -sitions as There is not the least shadow of fairness in it What say you brother farmers? Suppose we say that we will. have our balers to weigh just four hundred pounds and in no case to exceed 425, we more than get our money back on the bagging and ties anyway. Again I notice that the cotton merchants of Concord are imposing an inspection fee on tbe seller of five cents per bale. Wliat think you of that? Are we to submit to that? are not wanting our cotton inspected.

If we do, the buyer is far from paying us five cents per bale for inspection, and if the buye wants to look into the bales after it is sold let him do it at his own expense, and for the sake of all that is just do not impose it upon tbe poor honest industrious farmer.
