The Cotton Excitement in India.
The Vigorous wH'uita ritit forth by Eng
land to obtain cotton from her own colo
nics have produced an extraordinary de
gree Of activity in India. A Calcutta
letter in the London 7jicj says:
"At present it is striking to observe the
way in which cotton is pouring into Cal
cutta. Iho jetties on tho Ilooghlr and
theturuckson tho line are covered with
great bags, unscrewed, and, in some cases,
almost unsewn. No care has been shown
inpackinr it, and little is given by tbo
railway oiliciajs in the transit. Tho road
and the river are often covered with it;
natives as they pafs, and tho birds of the
air, help themselves to it; and all because
there are no screws in the interior. ' Yet,
bo largely have prices risen in the inte
rior that it can afford to pay the high
rates demanded necessarily by tho rail,
way for cotlon so packed. Little above
thirty hundred weight of unscrewed cot
ton can be stowed away in one wagon,
and each wagon coats from thirty to
thirty-five rupees, and at that sum hard
ly pays. This rupee a hundred weight
to transport cotton from Agra and Alla
habad to Calcutta is duo solely to the
want of screws.
" The river presents a similar scene.
Great boats, which are as safe as they are
unwieldly and unshapely, are borne down
by the current oo to Calcutta. This is
tho result of prices having at last risen
above the level of 185'J, when they reach
ed their highest point during tho past
twenty years. Fortunately, too, the rise
took place about sowing time, and the
fact that native capitalists are eager
for cotton gives the people, so often de
luded by the fickleness of Manchester,
confidence in the permanence of the rales.
So long ago as the close of July, fifty,
four shillings per maund of eighty-two
pounds was the rate at Mirzpore and
Ghazecpore, and this ia higher thau tias
ever beeu known. 1 5 tit tho cotton seems
to be most filthy, and has never been so
much adulterated as within the last ten
i'ears. Formerly each kind of cotton
tad its own peculiar failing, but now all
are bad alike. Compta, which had only
seed, is now weighted in addition with
stones and dirt, while broach and Iliol
leia, which were oniy dirty, are now ai
full of seed also as Com l a. Vt)rse than
this, mixing has been added to 'he baser
kind of adulteration, and bad cotton has
been packed with all tho well-known and
distinctive marks of what is good."
Safk Investment. Many capitalists
are, it is said, purchasing diamonda and
jewelry as the lest and safest manner in
which they can invest their inonoy.
Married ladies strongly advise such in
vestments on the part of their husbands".
The Rebels Squirming Under tha
Emancipation Proclamation.
The Richmond laaminer, of November
5th, has the following article :
"The enormous and rapid increase of
the enemy's naval power in this war is
one of its most painful subjects of inter
est. This arm has grown to such size as
to threaten us in many respects more se
riously than the enemy's land forces.
Tho Yankees have now afloat at least two
hundred vessels of war more than they
could boast when the war commenced.
Large and active preparations have been
made for naval movements this winter,
and it is generally estimated that there
are now about Lfty non-clad men-of-war
building for the Yaukeo government, be
sides these afloat. . .
"There is good reason to suppose that
the Yankee fleet which is to fall upon our
coast this winter will oe stronger in point
of armament and class of ships than any
which has yet embarked on an ouensive
movement. The objects to be accom
plished by this naval demonstration are
of the most considerable importance.
They are to capture our seaports; tomako
their blockade effectual; and to open ave
nues of invasion to these districts of the
South where the emancipation proclama
tion can, with the beginning of the new
year, bo put into practical .effect.
"It is useless to deny the advantages
which would ensue to tho enemy from
the capture of our remaining ports, or to
slight such a misfortune to us by the
consolation that we can still whip the
enemy by interior warfare. Tho welfare
of . the country is essentially associated
with tho protection of what ports w now
have ; and if there is any reason to fear
that, through improvidence, or imperfect
foresigh . on the part of this government,
Charleston, Savannah and Mobile are to
fall into the hands of the enemy this
winter, then we may prepare ourselves
for a train of disasters that will reach Ilia
heart of the South, and fearlully try the
fortiludo of our people.
, "With these ports in tho hands of the
enemy, the blockade could bo enforced
with a strictness and rigor of which wo
have yet had no experience in our suffer
ings from this source. We would have
to abandon all ideas of building a navy
on this side of the Atlantic. We would
have to repeat the humiliation of givin
up to the enemy or of destroying what
few' naval structures we hive. We would
lose, to a (rreat extent, our vast, system
of railroad communication in the cotton
S'afes: and we might realize, when it
ws too late, that the interior warfare of
which such hopes are indulged, would
render the sustenance and preservation
ol a large army almost impossible.
lueso calamities threatened in the
capture of our ports are grave enough.
Ono graver, however, and more terrible
than all these, is to come if the enemy
can get a hold in tho cotton states, for
putting into operation there his emancipa
tion scheme. Ureal eliorts will naturally
be made to keep this pet measuro of tho
abolitionists from falling to tho ground
and lo seo that the wrath which Mr.
Lincoln has bottled for the first of Jan
uary does not go into a harmless fizzle of
soda powder, ho far in the war the ene
my's scheme of servile insurrection has
proved a ridiculous failure. Tho attempt
is uow to put it into operation where wo
are least defended, to try the poison at
the, heart of the South.
"Prediction of futuro disaster is not
pleasing taie to mat portion ol our peo
pie who are never questioning what the
government does, and take for patriotism
a blind and blustering trust in tho ui
lure, it is lor lear ol the consequences
of this wretched self-deceit that we have
pointed out the important results invol
ved in the naval uiovarucnts of the enemy
on our coast and rivers. Wo do not say
that Charleston, Savannah and Mobile
are or are not in a state of complete dc
fence. There i, of course, abundant
military authority in the South for say -
ing that they are as impregnable as Gib
raltar; but military' men and their
mouth-pieces have too often succeeded
in lulling our people to sleep with a
false Benso of security to admit the prin- j
ciple that they are to be implicitly re
lied on, and that it is unpatriotic. to le
ftist their lullabies. Wo havo the same
strain at New Orleans. Tho people there
awoke one morning to find (be Vncmy's
tlag in their harbor, and that they had
been mado the victims of the sloth and
iueilicjeney of those who had flattered
litem with security.
" Nothing outside of ollicial circles is
permitted to bo known of the state of the
defences of our ports. Rut recent omens
arc not favorable. Within a few weeks
past, Galveston has, almost without a
struggle, fallen iuto the hands of the
enemy. The newspapers wero forbidden
to say anything of the defence of this
city. There was no cn.il for help except
such as reached the dull ear of the Gov
ernment ; people weie not aroused ; their
patriotism was required to be ignorant,
to truit to leaders, and to be submissive
to whatever Rrovidt-neo had in store for
them and to another prize has fallen
into the lap of the enemy.
T' e practice of shrouding all military
maltfiH in mystery, ami requiring 'hn
people to believe that k' i- alc without
tin ir troubling theuisilve v iili inquiries,
has not acted wi ll in the South. It may,
to some extent, have served the purposes
of authority in throwing a veil over the
eyes of criticism, and concealing, though
imperfectly, its faults. .. Jt certainly has
Yot blinded the enemy. It appears, cu
riously enough, that he has kept himself
thoroughly informed of the condition of
our defences, while our own people know
of weakness only when the intelligence
reaches them that they are in the hands
of the Yankees. That we shall not have
a repetition of this sad experience of tho
past at Charleston, Mobile, Savannah, and
other places on our coast threatened by
the enemy, we continue to hope ; but it
is hoping in the dark." ,
Indiana Cotton.
From the Cincinnati (i.a He.
Some days siuce we noticed in theO'irciV
the receipt of a specimen of cotton grown
in Madison county, Indiana, by Miss
Burrows, aud mentioned that wo had for
warded tho samplo to a gentleman for
his opinion an. to its quality. We now
have the pleasure of laying before our
readers the following letter on tho sub
ject, from Samuel losdick, Esti., one of
us jiiupiiiiuis ui ma x rauKiin vxiiiun
Factory of this city :
I.a ...... i ....... C 1 1 . . 1 1 i i m ..
Cincinnati, November H. 1802.
To (fie RUtws of tlA Ouirite:
I havo examined the sample of cotton
you sent me. The fact that it was grown
in so high' latitude Madison count r.
Indiana gives it additional interest, and
the sample you send being from one boll,
is assurance that a fair yield may be re
alized. As to quality, but little : more
could bo desired than is shown in the
specimen, of which the fibre, though not
long, is fine, strong, silky and uniform.
I have also before me a sample of cot
ton grown near this city bv Mr. I' Evans.
In regard to the niialitv of -this. Iho
preceding remarks will fully ' apply.
though the boll is not so full, which may
bo accounted for from tho fact that it
was planted very late in the season.
It is caue for congratulation, as these
samplfs plainly indicate, I hatour North
ern soil is so well adapted to tho culture
of this creat staple, furnishing-' addi.
tional proof of the lallacy of the traitors'
text, that " Cotton is king."
My own judgment borne out by the
opinions ot others, whoso views in the
premises are entitled to respect.
1 take pleasure in addinif that Messrs
Gould, l'tarco & Co. will soon have ti
supply oi .Machines for emninir cotton.
1 he hand machines can bo furnished for
about Si0; those for motive power at
about $200. .With tho former W)0 lbs,
can be ginned per day; with the lattei
about 2,500 lbs. per day.
