THE. COTTON CULTURE, &c
A: co rrespondent of the National Intelligencer, in the
COMIIO of an able article, gives tho following as a mem
°earldom obtained from the private papers of our ven-
ARUM Coate! at Liverpool, the late Mr. James Maury.
la it the imports there of American cotton are stated
bales in 3 vessels fur 1785
6 " 3 ". 1786
100 " 5 " 1787
262 " 6 " 1788
• He adds:—“Whereas, during only one week in the
anotith of March, 1843, there arrived in that port not
less than 177,51.5 bales. brought from the U. States by
such a 'flint of ships as had never before been seen to
enter that harbor. This immense yield was produced
by the South; but it was not a tithe of the last crop
groan there. The entire crop of 1842 did nut fall far
short of two and a half millions of bales, being 2,380,-
03j. This, at the moderate esti:nate of six cents the
pots ad, or twenty-four dollars the bale, gives fifty-seven
miflioss, or mire than one-third the entire floating
capital of the country in this one item alone."
The soma writer. in another part of his paper, says:
—"When the first handful of American cotton arrived
is England, half a century ago, could it have entered in
to the mind of Adam Smith, or of' the most gifted seer
that has ever indulged his fancy in visions of political
economy, to conceive that the fleecy cargo which wan
tlionawn coming over the sea, was destined to spread
iiiself.„in a little while, like Ahab's cloud, over the realms
taco:amerce, and to make the broad ocean white with
skips an.l with-trade 1 So requisite and indispensable
bast this article now become in our domestic economy,
that we of the present day cannot well conceive where
with man was cO:nfortahly clothed before he used cot
ton as raiment. To others, but not to us. belongs the
mak of interpreting end expounding those lawAof trod , :
by which its future increase is to be regulated, and the
ultimate bounds set to its uses. But as for the resour
cci of thii cotton region, and its capacities of supply,
there appears to us to b no limits, which fancy, in it 4
Widest range may reach. If wet Ike a bale as the av
erage yield of an acre of ground, the statistics of the
last census show that the whole quantity of land planted
dawn and cultivated in cotton, throughout all the south
era ;ad manor.' st ttes, would not, if brought near and
thrown altogether into one broad plantation, equal
the tenth part of the State of 'Ali ssisaippi alone." -

-The Qamen wa.: observed to repeat the mayoral
pleasantry to PrinCe Albert; and the royal couple were
much amused by the Mayor's efforts to keep up with
the royal carriage. Occasionally 63 succeeded by
mnely taking long strides, at other times he found it
nerassary to assume a sort of a hopping movement,
but ha gallantly went through the glitters without any
regard to his chnuitnir !; and, though what is cumnion
ly termsd "windld," he contrived to it.:l-p up a quick
successiol of replies to tha royal questionings. The
following is a specimen:—
The qieen.—The town seams a very fine one 1
The Mayor.—Yes, your (hop) Majesty. It hay al
ways (skip) been so Considered (jump.) But if Ca-n
-bridge (spla.sllinto the puddle) was thought much of
(stride) before, what. will it be (trim intern stone) now
that roar Majesty (a regular leap to keep up) has con
descended (a terrific gasp) to visit 113
Thu go, -en on arriving at Trinity College, politely
thlriked him at the gate, and expressed her fear that
the scamper had wearied him, upon which the Mayor
contrived to get out in ono breath. that "He+ could never
he weary in the presence of her Majesty." The royal
starriness having passed in, the Mayor was alternately
cheered and laughed at by the bystanders.
