We have pretty good ctidcnrc that the
11 raluy season " hie commenced ; for the
past week there hao been frequent anil
copious show era of raiq. This, it ii said,
it about ooo month earlier than usual.
The lint showers begun, about the first or
October, though Tor the beginning ten

the streams; but answered a good purpose
by laying the dust. Hut the rain that has
fillrn sinco last Thursday, has made con
siderable Impression upon the titer at this
'place. The water has been craduallv

day or two we see fresh arrivals of com
panies, tha most of which are not very

impossible to get along with any thing
like convenience where companies consist

We havo seen them sell hero at the rato

would bring almost any price that might

the peoplo arc so backward in as tho glow,

that a perron could engage in that would
yield a greater profit than fruit growing.)
The few experiments that have been tried,
