From the New Have Courier.
A Mother's love for a Mamiac.-Near
the easterly base of the West Rock, op
posite the place where the ascent com
utences, may be seen a small rustic cot
tage. surrounded by a few stunted trees,
and standing isolated from the world, by
its remoteness from all neighbors. Few
evidences of fertility are found in the re
gion.-Sterile it sides and plains where
vegetation can find but feeble hold, per
vade that Rock, and the chance way-fa
rer there wonders how the immates of
such a home, can find enough by which
to sustain nature. But the wants are
lew and simple, when reduced to such as
are absolutety required to nourish the
animal economy, and even upon] the
desolate heath, and under the shade of the
sterile mountain. may be found the means
of moderate sustenance and support.
The reader will find in the humble
abode to which we have just alluded, but
two occupants. In the stillness of that
secluded spot strange faces are seldom
seen in winter, although during the sum
mer many visiters to West Rock pass it
by. But during the long, dreary incle
ment months none, save the two we have
mentioned, are to be found in this isolated
abode. And who are they ? We com
mend the reader to go and see. A mo
ther, with her maniac son, and he chained
to the floor? None other are. This mo
ther had a prepossessing look. Her cos
tume and address ye better than the
mass of her sex, in such an unfavorable
station, for the development of character
and refinement. 'She was not lonely"
she said, even during the dreariness of
winter. She had her son for society.
She had him to watch over and care for,
and now he was chained, he was secure.
He could'ot get away from her. He had
been insane for eight years. Formerly he
acted as guide to the 'Cave.' but his in
sanity had increased and he often wande
red and days would often clapse before he
returned. He was subject to fits, but he
was now secure in the house, and she
had him for society and to comfort her!'
This is the undying nature of woman's
love, of a Mother's affection fur her chil
. Such was the cheerful response of a
self denying parent, when replying to the
inquiries of a stranger, whom she accos
ted at the door. We inquired for the son
and asked permission, to see him. In a
small, dark apartment, to which access
was had through the little "spare" room,
we found the chained maniac. He lay
upon a low bed, with a dim light admit
ted through an opening in the wall. He
occupied in knitting and has kept in re
pose, seldom having, any violent parox
isms of insanity,so soothing even to the dis
orderei mind is employment. Rarely
have we seen a face which bore such ev
idences of character and beauty. None
of the usual squalidness ofextreme poverty
in his looks. None of the fierceness and
matted hair of ordinary maniacs! His
foe Grecian face and well moulded fpa
tures pallid from confinement. His dark
eye, flashing out unatural fire. His rich
beard and black hair,dropping in ringlets,
over his wild and almost supernatural
face. These were prominent characte
ristics of the son when the mother loves,
and there he lives, in his darkened apart
ment, chained to the floor.
Copper in the Human body.-A paper
was recently read before the French Aca
demy, to prove the existence of copper
in the human body,, in its nominal state.
It was known before that there is no lack
of brass in many human faces, and this
copper possibly explains the reason why
some are green.
A wet silk handkerchief, tied without
folding over the face, is. is is said, a com
plete security against sufiocation from
smoke; it permits free breathing and at the
same time excludes the smoke from the
lungs. It has been effectually tried.
Another Princess-Victoria is not the
only Princess in England, who is "doing
the state some service." Princess Chris
to~he of Hayti, aged sixteen, gave birth
to a daughter just before the last steamer
sailed. She is said to be as "black as the
ace of spades."

speculative and for consumption has a

a downward tendency; which has been

H AvRE, Oct. 14.
The continued favorable advices from
Liverpool have created an unexpected
activity of demand for Cotton in our mar
kies, and prices have advanced materially.
The Trade are buying cautiously but
speculators have operated largely under
- the impression that your crop is to be a
small one. Should their expectation on
this point fail, we may have a; complete
reaction; every thing therefore depends
- HAMBURG, November 7.
Remarks.-The stock of Cotton in Ham
burg and Augusta, on the 1st inst. was 21,
728 bales, of'which there were in Hamburg
4.858 bales; int Augusta 16,470 bales, and
on board boats and on the wharves 400
bales-the stock in Hamburg and Augus
ta same time last year was, 13,564 bales.
Total receipts in Hamburg and Augusta,
for the month of October last, 32,574
bales, same time last year, 34,929 bales.
There were received in Hamburg last
month. 11,582 bales, and in Augusta by
Rail Road 10,000, and by wagons 10,992
bales, making a difference of receipts above
Hamburg of 10,992 bales by rail road and
CoTr .-The arrivals of Cotton since
last Wednesday have been light, as the
planters are disposed to hold back fqr bet
ter prices. Owing to the small quantity
coming in, and the exp:ectaiion of Liver
pool advices, our market is brisk, to-day
at low prices, say 6 to 7j cts; principal
sales 64 to 7 cts. There seems no doubt
among those who know, but that we shall
have a short crop this year; most of our
planters would now have their Cotton tall
in, if it was opened; and we understand
that there is not very much to open.
AUGUSTA Nov. 8.
Cotton--The receipts have been fair du
ring the week. lip to the 4th inst., there
was.less activity in the market, but since
that time the sales have been very brisk.
Planters seem disposed to bold their cot
ton, and the news by the packet ship
Liverpool has probably imparted addi
tional confidence to buyers. The market
is firm at the 'following qnotations:-or
dinary 6 a 64; mniddling 65 a 7; middling
fair to fair 7 a 7*; good fair 71 a 74.
Groceries.-We have not the slightest
alteration to make in our table of last
week. Stock of every description is a
bundant and the demand generl, but ra
ther more limited than at the period of
our ilast quotations.-Constitutionalist.
COLUMBIA, Novembe, 9.
Cotton.-This article still comes in rath
er sparingly; but the market is tolerably
brisk and active for such a supply, and
prices have advanced I to 4 a cent since
our report of last week. We now quote
them, for new Cotton, at 7 a 71 cents,
extremes, though a strictly choice lot
would command 71; most sales at 7# to 71
CHARLESTON, Nov. 11.
Cotton.-The last weeks receipts of
Uplands amount to 8.659 bales-viz: by
Rail Road 3.492, by Water 4,519, and
by Wagons 648 bales. Exported in same
time 7,427 bales, leaving on hand a ship
ping stock of 18,094 bales exclusive of
4,999 on shipboard not cleared; of which,
4419 far Foreign and 580 for Northern
ports. The market on Saturday las,, the
first day of our week, proved :o be very
active-the operations on that day having
amounted to 2,569 bales, the asking rates
of the previous week appearing to be some
what easier obtained by sellers than a few
days before. On Monday, as well as on
the three following days, thedemand was
less active and rather irregular, but with
out a change in prices; both holders and
purchasers being in daily expectation of la
ter news by the Britannia appeared more
careless of operating. The daily sales
during the four days were as follows: On
Monday 846; Tuesday 650; Wednesday
889; and Thursday 1090 bales. Yester
day morning the anxiously expected ac
counts by the Britannia were received at
rather a late hour, from Liverpool to the
19th, and from Havre to the 15th ultimo.
From both markets, the advices appeared
to be looked ,upon as more favorable than
those previously received, and a pretty
active demand, in consequence was met
by holders, as we understood from some
at 4 cent advance on former rates; although
ottiers did not claim an advance, but sta
ted to us that they had only Tealized their
asking prices of the day previous to the
accounts and which they were enabled
then to obtain. The sales amounted to
2121 bales-making the total sales of the
week 8165 bales, at prices ranging from
81-8 a 8 1-2.-Mercury.
