tract is made, and then the prodlnig classes are
blamed for over production and extravagancee,
while those who have done the evil are esteemed
for their wisdom and prudence.
There are few people who contract debis with-
out intending to pay them, and no one except a
thief at heart would do it unless compelled to it
by actual want. But thousands, by expecting to
obtain work and being disappointed in this, be-
come discouraged and broken down by the hard-
ships they endure. These men are to be pitied,
instead of being blamed, as they now are by the
community-they need encouragement instead of
condemnation and imprisonment: no man should
seek for employment and be unable to get it.
Until there is a radical change in our monetary
system, these evils must and will continue as cer-
tainly as cause will produce effect. No remedy
which does not strike at the root of the evil can
remove it, and the power to do this is in the
hands of the nation.
The sudden scarcity of money does not depend
on the showers of the heavens or on an abundant
crop, but upon the will of a few moneyed men,
Wall-street brokers and petty banks, who deter-
mine when it shall be scarce and when plenty,
and when the rate of interest shall be high or
low. When they have, by sudden curtailment,
after a prosperous season of business, concentrated
in their hands a large portion of the earnings of
the people, it is for their interest again to lend
money at low rates of interest, that the people
may earn more property to be again taken from
them by the same unjust means.
Let us see to what this speculation in money
and measures amounts. Take all the obligations
which are given for the exchange of property of
every description in the nation: every time the
property changes hands it makes debtors and
creditors for a longer or shorter period; all money
loaned in any form does the same-these obliga-
tions, as I have before remarked, would probably
amount to more than eight thousand millions of
dollars in one year in this country, and when
these contracts are made, either paid for in notes
of hand, bonds, or book accounts, they are obliga-
tions binding on the parties to pay a definite sum
of money at a given time; all these are measures,
and call for definite sums of money; they are a
mere substitute held in lieu of money for a cer-
tain length of time, until it is paid. When peo-
ple speculate on these measures, troubles and hard
times begin: if the speculations in these measures
should forever cease, hard times, in all countries,
would be at an end, unless some unexpected ca-
lamity-as an earthquake or drought--should be-
fal a nation.
When we consider the amount of these obliga-
tions, and what a difference it makes to the debt-
or to double or treble the value in favor of the
capitalist, is it any wonder that the whole nation
should be racked to its centre and groan with
distress, oppression and misery?
When the distress begins to subside, and money
becomes very abundant, persons seek to lend their
money; but people fear to contract for it, as they
dread another season when distress and desolation
will arise by reason of the scarcity of money,
which may work their ruin-but this is not all;
the capitalist, expecting this, wants security
which will be good when hard times again make
their appearance.
THE FRENCH STEAMSHIPS.
The starting of the French transatlantic steam-
ships, in May, 1844, will form a new era in steam
navigation. The following appears to be the
programme; and the first great line, we have rea-
son for believing, is to start in May, from Havre
to New York:
First great line from Havre to .New York.-
Four steamships are to be placed on this line;
the departures are to take place once a fortnight.
Fifteen days are allowed for each passage, and ten
days at New York-in all, forty days. Twenty
days are to be allowed to each vessel at Cher-
bourg, between every voyage, to rest the crew,
and repair|the vessel and engines.
Second great line froin Bordeaux to Martin-.
ique.-Three steamers are to be placed on this
line; the departures are to take place once a
month. Two days are allowed for the passage

Azores to Martinique, the steamers to remain ten
days at Martinique. Twenty days are allowed for
the return passage from Martiniqe to Bordeaux--
in all forty days' sailing, and eleven days and a
half stoppages. Thirty-seven days are allowed
between every voyage, at Rochefort or Bordeaux,

age from Martinique to Marseilles-in all, forty-
two days' sailing, and sourteen and a half days


stoppages. Thirty-three days are to be allowed
at Toulon or Marseilles, between every voyage,
for repairs and repose.
Fourth great line-from St. N'azaire to ]Rio

NUMBER OF STEAMBOATS.
The Steamboat Tonnage of the United Sated
on the last day of Sept. 1843, was this re-
ported to Congress:-

Detroit,............ 3,296 Miscellaneous,... -.4;767
Charleston,.......3,289
Total Steamboat Tonnage.... 219,0
Of this amount two-thirds belong to the Wet
Estimating, the number of Steam vessels by thi
average tonnage, there must be at leda 'te thbs
and Steam vessels employed in the Donmesti
Trade of the United States.
In the valley of the Mississippi it appeals by
the above table, there are 125,000 tons of Stea'
boats tonnage; and if 200 tons be take as e
average tonnage of Steam vessels, there Wiue
600 Steamboats on the waters of the Missisipi,
This will not appear surprising when it is consi-
dered that in 1842, there were built 'on 't he Wate
of the Mississippi 102 Steamboats, and that each
year augments the number.
In 1838, there were, as stated in the Ahierieftf
Almanace of 1840, about 800 Steamboats in thed
United States, whose united tonnage was Lbout
150,000 tons. The complete returiis of 184t
gives a tonnage of 219,000; which, at the same
ratio to the boats, would produce between 1li00
and 1200 boats. Our estimate of 1006t boats lying
and active is therefore certainly not far beyond
the truth.
The table of tonnage a above given&, hows
where this vast commercial marine is employed.
First on the Valley of the Mississippi, next in the
city of New York, and then on the takes. From
the port of New York there are some 70 or 80
steamboats constantly running; while'onthe Lakes
there are hundreds. In the Valley of the Missis-
sippi the number of steamboats now employed is
equal to the whole number of those employed in
England proper. This will appear from the fol-
lowing statement extracted from Mc C6lloch's
Gazetteer of the steamboat tonnage 'of Great Bri-
tiain in 1834:
Steam-ships. Tonnage:
England, ...............434 43,867
Scotlandw,...............105 13,113
Ireland, ... ............84 1,674
British dependencies, ...49 8,032
Total,... .........722 82,716
It appears that the Steamboat tonnage of thd
Mississippi Valley exceeds by 40,0d6 tons, the
entire Steamboat tonnage of the Birtish Empireg
In other words, the Steamboat iofinage of Great
Britian is only two thirds that 'of the Mississippi
Valley. The magnitude of Ithis fct !will be best
seen by considering that the entre it.nnage of thd
United States is but two thirds .that of Great
Britain; showing that. this propo0ffbn is exactly
reversed in Western Steamboat Tade.
The building of Steamboats, aiddven the open-.
ing of new channdls'of navigation is constantly
going on, so that every year addsto the relative
importance of Steamboat navigation. In the past
year the river Platie, in Missouri-, was for the first
time navigated, and it is easy, tosee that the time
is near at hand when the Yello'Wstone, the Mis-
souri and the Arkansas, Will employ more Steam-
boats than the Mississippi nioivWdoes. In the last
two years the number of Steamtboats trips on the
Missouri river, isatated in the Missouri Republi-
can to have doubled. The same rapidity of in.
crease will continue for generations to come.
These facts pikce the question of improving the
Western rivers and harbors in a strong light.-
The harbor improvement on rivers as well as lakes
is a point of great importance; for it may be from
strong currants a1d fluctuating channels of out
rivers, we shall be unable to make permanent


improvements while in the harbors of all the
river and lake ports,decided benefits may be de.
rived from works preventing the formation of bars
and securing Vessels from ice and flood Wood.
Cin. Chrotns
NEW YORiC,PACKET SHIPs---We copy the fol-i
lowing from the Liverpool Chronicle, which
shows that these fine vessels are doing a good
business for their enterprising owners, and that the
trade of both countries is improving.
The Hpttinguer, on Monday, took out freight
amounting to upward of 1,500, and eleven cabin'
passengers; the Montezuma, which sailed the
same day, upward of 1,200, and ten cabin pas-
senrigers. By the way, these two fine .vessels, both
remarkably fast sailers, are pitted against each
other, and bets to some amount are dependent
upon which gets home first. The fine transient
ship Cohota also sailed in company; she is known
to be a very fast ship, and is pitted, as regards
speed, against the vessels we have named,' In
future, there will be a packet every five days. -.
The Europe is the first ship under the new regula-
tion. The Roscius, which is about to sail,. takes,
out freight amounting to 1,400. Indeed the
American packets have received better freights
lately than for a length of time previous.'


LIFE'S SUNNY SPOTS.
BY WM. LEGGETT.
Through life's dark and thorny path,
Its goal the silent tomb,
It yet some spots of sunshine hath,
That smile amidst the gloom.
The friend who weal and wo partakes,
Unchanged whatever his lot,
Who kindly soothes the heart that aches,
Is sure a sunny spot.
The wife who half our burden bears,
And utters not a moan;
Whose ready hand wipes off our tears,
Unheeded all her own;
Who treasures every kindly word,
Each harsher one forgot,
And carols blithely as a bird-
She's too, a sunny spot.
The child who lifts, at morn and eve,
In prayer its tiny voice
Who grieves whene'er its parents grieve,
And joys when they rejoice,
In whose bright eyes young genius glows,
Whose heart, without a blot,
Is fresh and pure as summer's rose- *
That child's a sunny spot.
There's yet upon life's weary road
One spot of brighter glow,
Where sorrow half forgets its load,
And tears no longer flow;
Friendship may wither, love decline,
Our child dishonor blot;
But still undimmed that spot will shine-
Religion lights that spot.

USURY; THE EVIL AND THE REMEDY.
BY GODEK GARDWELL.
CHAETER XV.
Of the relations of Money and Business.
Again, in regard to the amount of Currency
which would be required for the business of the
nation, I think it would be less than has generally
been in circulation. The currency being at par
in every section of the country, no delay in pro-
curing drafts for remittance, or any holding on
for higher rates of interest, money would circu-
late with great rapidity, and consequently for the
same amount of business a less quantity would be
necessary; and, and as to wild speculation, there
would be less danger from that than there ever
has been in any country. The great speculations
which make so much noise, in building lots,
houses, lands, &c. would never very materially
interfere with the general business of the nation :
a few individuals might be broken up where they,
bought on credit and agreed to pay for property
a larger sum than they could make the property
pay interest on, and in this way they might lose;
but this would never interrupt the general pros-
perity of a people. We never hear of hard times
in any country except when the interest on money
advances: the first complaint is always of a scar-
city of money, want of what is necessary to do
business; not only a scarcity of money to pay for
building lots, but a scarcity for all business pur-
poses. From great abundance we are suddenly
in great want, and the rates of interest have in-
creased double, treble or quadruple what they
were before. One now borrows money at six per
centc interest at bank, because he is among the
favored; another pays in the same street the same
day twelve per cent., another twenty-four, and
another, who is cornered," thirty-six; the last
ouys the use of the same article, in the same
street, on the same day, and pays six times as
much as the first; he does this from necessity.-
Why is not one person obliged to pay on the same
day in the same market, for a barrel of flour or a
bushel of potatoes, six times as much as another
individual who may happen to be in better credit
or greater favor ? Is there not as great a risk in
selling these articles as in lending money ? Do
people give better security when they buy mer-
chandise than when they borrow money? What
would be said of a grocer who made as much dif-
ference in the price of a pound of sugar or a quart
of molasses, charging those who were in the
greatest need the rmost exorbitant prices ? Those
who can buy almost any quantity of goods at the
Usual market prices in their own names, without
giving any security, pay these enormous prices for
money. Goods, wares and merchandise, which are
the products of labor, we trust out on a single name
without requiring any security for the payment of
the debt, We do not expect the persons buying
these goods to be impoverished by the purchase :
if we anticipated any such result, we should cer-
tainly demand security, as we should know we
were injuring our customers. But as a general
thing, we should not sell to them at all, tor if it
were usual for people to lose by the purchase of
goods, wares or merchandise, or any property
whatever, the product of !abor, none of these
things would be sold without security, and all
confidence between individuals would be lost;
people could not rent tenements, for who would
be security where it would often result in a loss
to the purchaser ? Society could scarcely exist
in this state ; it would indeed be in a wretched
condition. We may discourse about a cash sys-
tem without credit as much as we please, but it
is an impossibility; it never did and never can
exist.
Why is it necessary that in lending money it
should be hedged about with so many securities,
and these securities so often suffer by it ? The


only reason which can be assigned for it is that
people are compelled to pay more for the use of
money than the use of money is worth. If this
were not the case, to loan money would not be
hazardous. All the debts contracted by the pur-
chase of goods, wares and merchandise, are pay-
able in money as much as debts contracted by
borrowing money. Why should not a debt be as
sacred where a shoemaker has bought his leather
and given his note or paid the money on it and
spent his labor in making the shoes, as a debt for
money loaned ? May not a man as well lose his
money as his labor and leather, when he depends
upon these for his bread, as much as the other
does upon his money for his subsistence ? I be
liev@ more than nine tenths, and probably more
than ninety-nine hundredths, of these debts in
both cases are lost in consequence of unjust laws
in the monetary system. The interest on money
in all countries is far higher than the producers
can afford to pay, and not only so but interest has
Never been regulated in any nation. Money being
Sthe base of all contracts, the change in the rates
I of interest and the monopoly of money change the
base of every contract in the nation after the con-

hills cut away, and the low places filled up. It is
impossible that the Council can do all this at the
public expense. We are informed that at the
sale of lots by the Land Company, a provision
was made in the terms of jale that all purchasers
must fill up, or excavate t0 the city level, We
believe that in most instafices this has been com-
plied with; and it would now be great injustice
to those who have already improved in comply.-
ance with this injunction, to be subjected to a
tax for the benefit of the holders of the unim-
proved lots. The vacant lots owned here both
by the Land Company and private individuals,
are esteemed valuable, and'are held up for a high
price; and if they are in reality so now, they
must be enhanced in value by the general im-
provement and growth of the city.
We hope our representative will look to this
matter, and impress upon the consideration of the
Legislature the great necessity of this clause in
our charter.

IMPRISONMENT FOR DEBT.-The House of
Representative of Louisianna have passed a bill.
to amend the law of 1840, for the abolishment of
imprisonment for debt, provides that no person
coming to Louisiana from any other State, shall
be arrested for any debt, except such debt as he
may contract while there.

THE CUNARD STEAMERs.-The Halifax Jour-
nal of the 22d ult., states that information has
been received by the Britania, that the British
Government had extended their contract with the
Royal Mail Steam Company for ten years longer,
with an additional allowance of 10,000 per
annum.
BOAT BUILDING IN LOUISVILLE.-We learn
from the Louisville Journal that 35 steamboats,
with an aggregate of 7406 tons, have been built in
Louisville in the year 1843, at an average cost of
$20,000-total cost $700,000. The same paper
states that 100 steamboats have been built on all
the Western waters during the year.
TREATY WITH FRANCE.-The President and
Senate have ratified a treaty with France, similar
to one clause of the recent treaty made between
this Government and England, for giving up crim-
inals escaping from one country to the other.

THE CUNARD STEAMSHIPs.-Wilmer's Euro-
pean Times flatly contradicts the report started byv
the N. Y. Herald, that these ships are about to
change their port of arrival from Boston to New
York, there is no foundation for the report.

[From the N. Y. Courier & Enquirer.]
"The accounts of commercial affairs are highly
prosperous. Cotton is again on the advance, and
from the movements of the Bank of England, it is
probable it will yet increase. All the other mar-
kets are also on the advance. The money market
is flourishing, and the English revenue highly pros-
perous. On the whole, this news will probably
add -about $1,500,000 to the value of American
produce now in market."-From the Herald of
Wednesday.
"ln the course of the season, as soon as cotton
takes a start, ten dollars in specie will come back
where one now goes out; notwithstanding which,
the fact that shipments of specie had commenced
would create a very unfavorable impression in the
minds of many, and exert a corresponding influ-
ence on trade."-From the same.
"By the arrival of the packet ship Roscius from
Liverpool, with four days later intelligence, we
have received the most favorable advices in rela-
te the Money, Cotton and other markets. The
movements in the cotton market are particularly
encouraging. With very extensive sales, there
was a further advance of 1.8d on American des-
criptions. *
"The London Money Market continues in the
abundant condition noticed in our last. Stocks
were slightly neglected for investments in Cotton.
The feeling in England regarding speculations is
fast approaching fever heat, and the favorite ar-
, ticle will be COTTON, to the exclusion of stocks
and every thing else."-From Thursday's Herald.
"The New Orleans Money Market of the 20th
instant, presented a very fluctuating state. Ster-
ling exchange was very scarce% but the demand
was very limited. The speculation going on so
extensively in cotton in that market, has created
a demand for money that cannot be supplied by
the banks. This may lead to shipments quicker
than anticipated at the North. Unless capital can
be obtained in this city to aid. the speculators at
the South, cotton must go forward; and its re-
ceipt in the Liverpool market would alter the
whole complexion of movements, and produce a
premature explosion here. The speculatorsin this
market, therefore, should do all for their southern


friends possible to put off the crisis a little longer.
They must help each other to stand up for the
present, but like DRUNKARDS they will all eventu-
ally tumble in a heap together. EVEEY STEP TAKEN
IN PRICES-every advance only hastens the crisis."
-From near the close of the same article.
"This news is indeed very important. It gives us
the great fact that cotton in Liverpool had again
advanced NEARLY ONE CENT PER POUND, and the
sales have been immense, making an addition to
the value of American produce, full $2,500,000 on
both sides of the Atlantic,-From Friday's Herald.
"Upon the whole, therefore, we are satisfied that
every arrival from England will bring later and
better news of sound commercial activity there-
that upon the opening of the spring business in this
country we shall have prospects and realise move-
ments that we have not seen for many years be-
fore.-From Saturday's Herald.
We hope the reader will not be startled by
these long extracts from the Herald. We desire
them to be read carefully and pondered upon; and
leave to every reader the work of commentary.
They all refer to the great staple of the United
States-CoTTON; and as whatever affects the
price of this article, directly or indirectly, affects
every man, woman and child in the United States,
we have given the subject our grave consideration
of late, and shall proceed to put on record our
views.
In the first place, we need not tell our readers
that we have a superabundance of capital-or
unemployed capital in the country just at this


Sthe merchants, speculators and people of the Uni-
ted States ?
This third and last question is, in fact, the only
one open lor consideration. The fact that the
Cotton crop now coming in, is a very short crop,
admits of no doubt, and is unquestioned except by
those whose interest it is to keep down the price
of this staple for the benefit of the Foreign spin-
ners and capitalists. We do not blame them for
their exertions in this regard; what they are doing
is all right in the way of trade; but while it is
their duty to operate for their friends and capital-
ists, it is our duty to proclaim to our own people
the real state of existing affairs, and caution them
against playing into the hands of our opponents
in this great game, in the favorable issue of which
the whole country is, as we have already said,
directly or indirectly interested.
Cotton is higher here than in Liverpool; and
this fact both astonishes and alarms people, but
in our opinion very unnecessarily. It is true that
for several years past our prices have been made
to depend exclusively upon the price abroad ; but
why? Simply because we were loaded with
debt-the country poor-the planter in debt to
the shippers, and the shipper compelled to for-
ward his produce and be content with whatever
price the Foreign spinners were graciously pleas-
ed to grant him. What added to this necessity,
was the unusually large crop of 1842-the largest
ever known-with a large surplus from 1841.-
But now all these things have changed. By pa-
tient endurance, but principally by economy in
living-by consuming less and cheaper articles--
the whole country has gradually emerged from its
indebtedness. We are rich; and in future, may
and will fix our own prices upon our great staple,
instead of humbly receiving the pittance paid us
for it last year. The business of the country has
been contracted within its capacity and its wants;
no extravagant schemes and enterprises have been
embarked in; and in consequence, until within a
few weeks there existed an absolute superabund-
ance-a real plethora of money. That supera-
bundance exists at this moment; it has neither
been sunk nor found new avenues for employment;
but the English capitalist-the agent of the Eng-
lish spinners and cotton speculators-have deter-
mined that Cotton shall go down; and to affect
this, they have ceased to sell bills. But this is
not all. They have bought up all the Bills on
France, folded their arms, and very quietly said,
"ship your Specie or your Cotton.!"
We speak advisedly and from facts within our
possession. Now then, whatis to be done? We
answer promptly-shzp the specie. What earthly
good does it do the country or any body in it, by
being piled up in the vaults of our Banks from
Maine to Louisiana? But the weak and the tim-
id are seized with a panic the moment a dollar
in specie is about to leave our shores; and in an
instant-in the twinkling of an eye-money which
was drug at two per cent, per annum, advances
in value to six! This the English capitalists and
spinners and their agents foresaw, and now they
are chuckling over the idea that"cotton must go."
But is not all this alarm very childish on the
part of our capitalists ? What is the object and
what the uses of specie? It is the medium of
Exchange between nations; and yet we act as if
we were always to receive it in, and never send it
out of the country. A pretty article of .E .,'aring:.
verily, which we are always so unwilling to "ex-
change!" Cotton is better than gold and silver
in every sense of the word. It has a real, actual,
necessary and convertible value; it is what all
Europe must have; and for which they are com-
pelled to give us just as much gold and silver in
return as we think proper to demand. Gold and
silver is not a necessary-cotton has become, and
is such. If, then, by sending our gold and silver
now, and keeping our cotton for a few months, we
can compel our foreign customers to give us back
double the quantity of specie that we now send
them, is it not the part of wisdom to do so ? Let
us not be misunderstood. We do not desire to
repress the gradual and regular shipment of cot-
ton; all we desire is, to see our Banks and capi-
talists laugh at the idea of a panic because specie
is to be shipped when we have confessedly too
much of it, and to go on steadily with the regu-
lar and safe business which they have commenced.
We learn on enquiry, that the Banks have made
no loans upon Cotton; but that they have dis-
counted paper based upon loans upon cotton at
half its value, to the extent of about one million.
This is the safest, the surest, and most patriotic
business that our Banks ever engaged in; and, if
they will pursue it steadily and fearlessly, they
will save to the country some twenty millions of
dollars which would otherwise be made by the
Foreign capitalists and spinners. We repeat, capi-
tal is super-abundant; and, if capitalists and the
Banks will not suffer themselves to be frightened
out of their legitimate business by the well plan-
ned schemes of the Foreign capitalists, there ex-
ists no earthly necessity why they should not loan
as heretofore, very freely both upon stocks and
cotton. There is more money than both require;
but it must not be hoarded the moment the Fo-
reign agent refuses to sell bills and we are com-
pelled to ship specie. Let it go. We hold it for
no other purpose; and very soon we shall find it
flowing back upon us in increased quantities
We shall now proceed to lay before the public
as briefly as possible, the facts we have gathered
in regard to cotton, and upon which we base our


opinions. Let it be borne in mind that it is, in
our opinion, a great National question, and we
shall not be considered tedious; and when we add
that we have never bought or sold or been inte-
rested in, directly or indirectly, a bale of cotton
in our lives, our motives in writing cannot be
questioned.
We may set down as facts now generally admit-
ted:
1st. That the present crop of cotton cannot
reach the quantity, or any thing near the quantity,
produced last year.
2d. That, owing to the amelioration in the sit-
uation of the planters, of the traders, and in the
affairs of the country generally, a less quantity
than heretofore will be forced upon the losing
markets of Europe, under any circumstances that
may arise.
3d. That exports will be more regular, more
sagaciously directed, than last year; and conse-
quently, more equally distributed among the dif-
ferent ports, so as not to crowd any particular one,
as was the case last season, when almost the whole
surplus of the crop went to England.
4th. That the ruling prices of cotton, on this
side, although higher than those now known as
the ruling ones min Europe, are still very moderate,
taking into consideration all circumstances, as the
following table will show:-
Quotations at JVew Orleans, for the last Seven
Years, for "Fair," as compared with the crop.


and, therefore, the price of cotton, even now, is
below the average price of the last seven years;
and this too in one of the short years, for the total
of the seven years is 12,460,827, which divided
by 7 gives 1,780,000 bales; whereas this crop
cannot reach 1,800,000 bales, and may fall very
far short of it; but this is conjectural in. the
minds of some, and we do not dwell upon it, at
least, at present. But even if it did go beyond,
it will not exceed 1,900,000; and even then should
not be considered more than an average crop, as,
the mean annual yield ought to be fully that,
since, we are: so far from the starting point, and
the production increases.
5th. That, low as our prices are, the foreign
rates are still lower, as will appear from the quo-
tation of the principal market of Europe:-
For New Orleans, "Fair," 5jd.
Deduct for charges, duty, commission,
loss of weight, only id.
Exchange 8 premium, 1

.Leaving 3d.
or, in American currency, 7(c. for what costs at
New Orleans at least 9Rc.; and therefore, unless
trade is stagnant, money very scarce, or there is
some particular reason or mystery to explain or
justify this, a reaction on the other side, sooner
or later, must take place.
6th. That this price of 5Ad. in Liverpool, is
indeed a very low one; and this can be easily seen
by looking over the quotations there for the last
seven years. And if we consider that during the
Sgloomiest of times-in July last-when trade was
bad, the harvest threatened with great danger, the
China affairs unsettled, the heaviest stock on re-
cord unsold, and the future uncertain, the price
for this same grade was only ld. less.
Therefore, all an active, good and healthy state
of things; an abundant crop of grain; the ami-
cable adjustment of the Chinese question, and the
opening of another vast field for commercial en-
terprise; the reduced supplies and bright pros-
pects ahead,-all which these things combined
have as yet accomplished.for this great staple, has
only been to regain a small part of what it lost in
value by reason of our poverty and the over pro-
duction of last year.
7th. That the receipts at the different ports
have already fallen off 300,000 bales from last
year; and that the diflbference will increase as we
advance in the season. First, because on account-
of higher prices, the cotton has been sent to mar-
ket as early as could be; and secondly, because
the crop being moderate, sufficient hands have
been found to gather and forward it,-a fact gene-
rally overlooked, and which, in an abundant year,
causes the receipts to be as moderate at first as if
there were but little cotton. It is to be remem-
bered also, that the cotton forwarded at the com-
mencement of the season, arrived very freely, fa-
vored by the good state in which the streams and
rivers then were, and which have since flooded
the South Western country.
8th. The exports last year to this time,
were..............................751,067 bales.
This year........................353,009 do.
Diffe.ence.......................398,058 bales.
To England alone the exports were .537,401 bales.
This year ........................ 239,089 do.
Difference....................... 298,312 bales.
So the deficiency falls, for the most part upon Eng-
land, as almost all the overplus went to her last
year.
9th. That the stock in England was at the latest
dates, about 780,000 bales, and that she consumes
annually 1,350,000 at the lowest, and requires at
least, a stock on hand of 500,000 bales, if she does
not want to run the risk of seeing cotton run up to
12d per lb.
That, consequently, allowing ............. 350,000
bales only for the consumption of this country
For France only.......... .... ..... .... 350,000
For all other countries, in neither of which
is there an overstock...................150,000
Kept on this side, as the planters and fac-
tors alone can and will do, if any in-
ducement exists........ .... .. .. ........ 150,000
Total number of bales................... 1,000,000
It requires a crop of.............2,070,000 bales
to allow England to consume 1,350,000
in 1844, and retain at the close of the
year a stock of 500,000 bales. From
this deduct ....................... 250,000 bales
which England may receive from other ---
parts of the world, it requires yet.. .1,820,000 bales
But, even then, stocks are diminished, consump-
tion must be checked, and another moderate crop
is far from being improbable. The cotton districts
are now nearly all under water; the earth can
hardly be prepared in time for planting the next
crop; and the least additional mischance, will
produce a late flowering, and the late flowering,
all its inevitable consequences.
llth. Upon a careful review of the whole then,
we think that the cotton operations, of which the
public have heard so much, have never been con-
ducted upon a safer basis and we are decidedly
of opinion, that cotton should and will continue
to advance; and that under similar circumstances,
a few years since, prices would have run up much
above what they now are. As to the stock on
this side, which is so often reverted to, it is not
larger than what ought to be reasonably expected,
since it only shows an increase upon last year, at
the same date, of 135,195 bales. The enhanced
and steadily enhancing value of this great staple.
abroad, and the great question whether the United
States or England shall benefit by that advance.


must and will depend upon our ability and willing:-
ness to hold a portion of it here. Of our ability
there is no doubt; and as capital can in no way
find such secure investment as in moderate loans
upon an article of such intrinsic value, we will not
believe it possible that those who seek to depress
the price of cotton by getting up a panic, will be
permitted to succeed. We do not complain of
their movements, as it is a legitimate speculation ;
but we would, if possible, thwart their well arran-
ged plans.
P. S. The foregoing was written on Saturday,
and in type when the Europe arrived yesterday.-
The news by her strengthens every position we
have assumed, and would warrant stronger lan-
guage than any we have used. We condently
predict a steady and large advance in the'price of
cotton on the other side ; and our Banks will find
it their interest to give every reasonable and safe
facility to the holders of cotton here, in order to
secure to the people of the United States the full
benefit of this timely increase in the value of our
great staple. The public good, the interests of
commerce, and their own prosperity, all demand
such a course.
The shipping interest of our city is destined to
be greatly and permanently benefited by making
this, at all times, a great cotton mart; and this
fact should never be lost sight of. Freights are
low just now; but we predict a very large ad-
vance.
BANK OF THE STATE OF GEORGIA.-On Monday
last says the "Forsyth Georgian," of the 9th ult.,
a $1 bill on the Bank of the State of Georgia, pay-
able in Savannah, and raised to $20, was passed
on a gentleman in this place by a stranger, who
immediately "left for parts unknown." The figures
XX's and the words "twenty dollars," judging
from appearance, were cut from a blank bill of
what is usually denominated "Florida money,"
and were very ingeniously plastered on such por-
tions of the bill as was requisite to make it appear
like a genuine $20 note by a thin glutinous sub-
stance. Should any such be in circulation, they
can be easily detected by holding them up to the
light, face outwards, when the original figures, let.-
ters and words can be distinctly seen.

LATE NEWS FROM EUROPE-RISE IsN CoT-.
TON, &c.-We call the attention of our readers to
an able and ingenius article, published in our
columns to-day, from the New York Courier and
Enquirer, on the subject of the Cotton crop. The
writer takes a fair and comprehensive view of the
subject, and contends that the prospect of a fur.
their rise and a liberal profit to the holders, are
not based on the opinion of a few speculators, but
upon the abundance of money in this country *;
the small amount on hand in England; the short-
ness of the present crop, and the average price
for the last seven years being greater than it now
is in New Orleans.

FOREIGN NEWS.-By the Packet ship Europe,
news has been received from Liverpool up to 16th
January. The most important news is that of the
price of Cotton; and although there had been no
advance from the 13th, prices were sustained, and
the sales very large.
The stall Trials in Ireland were close at hand,
and great excitement prevailed. The officers for
the crown succeeded in their efforts in striking
off all the Catholics from the Jury list.
The Catholics at Dublin had held a meeting
remonstrating against the cutting off of the sixty-
three Catholics from the list.
From France, there is no news of importance.
The address of the Chamber of Deputies, is a
mere echo of that of the King; except on the sub-
ject of the slave trade. On that subject, such a
course is recommended as will place French
commence strictly under the surveillance of the
French Flag; an expression interpreting an aban-
donment of the right of search claimed by Eng-
land.
The Paris fortifications were about to be armed.
Lord Morpeth is about to enter the field of poli-
tics again. He will resume his public duties at
Wakefield. The newly appointed British Minis-
ter to the United States, Mr. Packenham, it.is
confidently stated, carries with him full powers
to negotiate a settlement of the Oregon question.
CIRcUs.-Among the several amusements that
have lately enlivened our city, we have been fa-
vored by a visit from Messrs. RICH & ROWE's
Equestrian corps, lately at Mobile. They have
erected their magnificent Pavilion in our midst,
and already are drawing crowds around them to
witness their astonishing deeds in Horsemanship
and Gymnastics. The company is quite large,
Swell selected, and ocers many inducements to all
who are fond of bold riding and good music. We
were much gratified on Saturday evening at the
performance of Messrs. Rowe and Shindle, who
rode with a grace and skill that would do credit
to any amphitheatre, and reminded us of -days
of yore," when we were wont to gaze with won-
der and admiration at the graceful Stickney, or
the inimitable Hunter, flying around the ring
with such intrepid boldness and easy grace, that
we could almost imagine them floating upon the
very breeze which they themselves created. The
horses are in fine training and perform well. The
leaping, vaulting and imitations are executed
with skill and grace, and to crown all, the whole
is constantly enlivened by the martial and melo-
dious music of the BRASS BAND.
The accommodations are good and comfortable,
and the strictest order and decorum preserved.
We hope therefore to see a large number of the
ladies of our city in attendance this evening, add-
ing an additional charm to the entertainment.-
The bill of performances is exceedingly full and,
rich.

OUR CITY CHARTER.
A Bill has been introduced and passed by the
lower House of the Legislative Council, to amend
the Charter of our city, with a veiw of enabling
the Corporation better to collect the Taxes, and
compel a strict observance of certain regulations
and laws for the government of our city, which it
was thought the present charter did not embrace.
The Senate, however, have not concurred in
the passage of the Bill entire, but have stricken
out the fifth section, which embraced a very im-
portant feature in the grant. This section pro-
vided that wherever a vacant lot was deemed a
nuisance by the Board of Health, the city autho-
rities should give notice to the owners, that it
must be filled, raised, or graded to the city level;
and in case of neglect on the part of the owner
to comply with the demand, that the city have
power to make such improvement as is deemed
necessary for the health and comfort of the neigh-
borhood, and that the charge therefore be a lien
upon so much of the lot as will pay the expense,
and advertise and sell it, if after due notice the
parties do not come forward and pay." We do
not know why the Senate should have stricken
out this section of the Bill. It cannot be unjust
to the holders of even unimproved property in the
middle of the city, to subject them to the same
Taxes and laws as other owners are obliged to be
governed by. The City Council are making


yearly improvements, in draining the low and
swampy places, constructing sewers and grading
the streets; and it would be unfair that the citi-
zens should be further taxed to improve the va-.
cant lots, through the heart of the town, or allow

PORT OF NEWf YORK.-While we are congra-
tulating ourselves at the the immense business
now transacting in the port of New York, and
looking at the heavy importations now made, we
may ask ourselves are we as cautious as we ought
to be in reference to our past misfortunes. The
amount of duties collected at our Custom House-:
is as follows:
1843-Quarter ending March 31...$1,940,000
June 30..... 2,570,000
Sept. 30..'...4,450,000
C Dec. 31..... 2.500,00
1844-Jan. 1st to 31st inclusive,... .1,870,000
This is an immense amount of money to collect
in one district, almost sufficient to defray the en-
tire expenses of the government. We are plea-
sed to hear at the same time, that the business
transactions of our Custom House are conducted:
with the greatest order and regularity,, and to the
entire satisfaction of the mercantile community;
that from the Collector down, every man is atihis
post, and that industry and accountability prevails
throughout that department in a manner unequal-
led on any former occasion. All the goods we
presume now imported are intended for the Spring-
buisiness. In the public appraisers stores 8200-1
packages of goods have been sent for inspection,
and as one or two cases only are selected from
each invoice, we may readily imagine the whole -
number imported.-JV'ew York Sun.

GREAT SMUGGLING OPERATIONS IN NEW'
YORK.-700 worth of West of England broad-
clothes, brought over by the ship Oxford, have'
been seized by customhouse officers in New York.
The Aurora says-" As yet no admission has been
made of any goods smuggled, beyond the exact
quantity detected, which is forty-five cases. The
great question arises whether the ship has subjec-
ted herself by the act to confiscation.

PORT OF BosToN.-The duties on the cargo of
the ship Minerva, from London, entered at the
Custom House yesterday, are estimated at $20,000,
on the ship Tarolinta, from do., at $70,000; on
that of Bremen ship Schiller, from do., at $20,000;
on that of the brig Oceanus, from do., at $25,000;
total $135,000.-Boston Courier..

spectfully solicits, from his friends and the public,
a share of their custom. The Bar will be con-
stantly furnished with the choicest WINES,
LIQUORS, and CIGARS. Gentlemen who wish
to indulge in a Toddy,' cold or hot, a Punch,'
hot or cold, or straight fixins,' will find them

will always find here a regalia,' a I canone,' or
a principle, of the most delicious flavor.
The reputation which the "City Hotel" has

The undersigned, passengers on board the

known the high regard and esteem entertained by
them toward Capt. NILES, for the deep interest
manifested by him to render their passage to and

ITS POWER IS UNIVERSAL.
"For the angel of death spread hiswings on the
blast,
And breathed in the face of mankind as he passed.'
REMEMBER
That the first symptoms of sickness, complaint or
disease, has an origin which requires but little at-:
tention to overthrow the first cause of illness
NEGLECT
At this season of the year when the organic state*
of the body opens the system in a premonitory,
way for the speedy gathering of matters whici
end in CAUSES beyond the approach of medi-'
cine, and finally terminates in DEATH.
How necessary is it then that mankind should-
become aware of the safeguard which can be
thrown around them at a moments notice, when
attacked by CHILLS, COUGHS, and COLDS.
Simple as such complaints may appear at first
sight, they are the mere precursors of that disease
which ends in CONSUMPTION.
Why then will people be blind as to the proper
course which they should pursue when the An-'
gel of death spreads his wings on the blast."
Awake at once to the necessity of preserving
life and health, if you have a severe cold, fly to'
that famous remedy, and use
