SITFERABIINDANOE OF COTTON MAIMPACTIMM.
The Newburyport Herald states that in Conde
quence of the accumulating stocks of costae
cotton and print cloths, the mills in that work
are shortening production. The Globe and
Ocean in that city stop one-third of their ma
chinery; the Merrimac, Prescott and other
corporations in Lowell do the same; and ope
rations of the same kind are taking place all
over the States, to relieve the markets. The
mills in Newburyport have their cloths for
several months on hand. In Manchester they
propose to makti,a similar suspension of labor
throughout the city ; but there being a better
demand for fine cloth, such as the Bartlett and
James' make, the prices of these keep up, and
the work, for a time at least, will continue at
full speed and full pay.
THE DISMEMBERMENT OF AIISTRIA.—.WO learn
from a private letter by the Persia, from Vi
enna, that war, which seems inevitable in thiS
country, will also speedily exist in Europe.—
The Poles refused to be comforted with the
halting concessions made to them. The Hun
garians, excited by the affairs of Italy, are
determined to follow the example of the Ital
ians, and achieve a like success. But this is
not all. The lethargic Bohemians are also
aroused, and are preparing for an early revolt.
Indeed, there seems to be every prospect that
by the Ist of June the rebelliod of the Pelee,
the Hungarians and the Bohemians will tie in
active progress. The Venetians will nut be
behindhand.—N. Y. Post.
