One party bought 180,000 lbs. at an early period, at an average of 44 or 45 cents. Afterwards tome 70,000 or 80,000 lbs. were bought at higher rates, say 55 to 63. The entire crop, it is supposed, will average about 40 cents, which is thought to be above its value, notwithstanding the improvement in quality. -
