RELIGIOUS FEA83 OF MR. DAVIa' CHAR
There was no affectation 'of devout,

every opportualty I bet of eeig hin
convinced me more depy of his-aiiceri
religious donvictions. He was fblid'o

paring text with text, dwelling bn the
divine beausty of the imagetr'and' thi
wonderful adaptation of, the 'wh614' t
every conceivable pia.e and stage c

individual experience, however strng6,
could 'uring home to ,hims, but had been
previously fotet'ld and described, with
its proper lesan or pronAiso of hope, in
the sacred volume. It was the only
absolute wisdom, reaching all varieties
of existence, because comprehending the
whole ; qnd beside its inspired universal
knowledge all the learning of humanity
was but foolishness. The Psalms were
-his f1vorite portion of the word, and had
always been. kvidence of their divine
origin was inherent in their text. Only
an intelligence that held the lifethireads
of the entire human family could have
thus pealed forth in 'a single cry every
wish, joy, exultation, hope, passion, anid
sorrow of the human heart. There were
rnonents,- while speaking on religious
subjects, in which M r. Davis inipre'ssed
me more than any professor of Chris.
tianity I had ever heard. Thero was a
vital earnestness in his discourse; a clear,
aniost passionate grasp in his-faith; and
the thought would. frequently recur thit
a belief capable of consoling- such
rows as his possesAe, and thereby.ovi.
denced, a i-eality, a substance, which no
Pphistry of tlhe infidel could discredit.

THE PoRK DIsEAsE.-A Western

that they had.h.oen eating, dried and

If Dr. Craven had not wisely published
the whole oliloini correspondence, the fel.
lowing statement would seem inereible:
On the 26th of October last "Mr. Davis
having complained thathis clothing was too
thin for the increasing cold" 'of a room in
which there was no fire, Dr- Craven ro
quested a "friend to procure a good heavy
black pilot overcoat" and "soo flannels for
.the prisonhe r." .
"These act$," says Dr. Craven, "appear.
itag to tme innocent, an:1 even laudhble,
caused mne great trouble, as miy be .ceu.hby
the following correspondence, finally lead'
ing to a peremptory order which altogeth-OP
broke off the previously freerelations 1 had
exercised with Mr. Davis."
All of us probably recollect the delectable
Forney's noble rage about this tumorable
overcoat. That incomparable wretch was,
indignant at President Davis having go6ill
1warn clothing. When Forney heird that a
.(pijor natned "Owens" was~miaking an over
tobiAfgr Agr. Davis theChrone/e slouted
Witir'or a week. It favored Mr. Davis'
freezing to death and charged that the con.
ppiracy to keep him warm was the work of
'traitors." It is consoling to reflect, how
ever, that if there is any heat in Orcus,
that Forney will not require an overcoat
when thme devil gets his own.
As a matter of course Miles is ant atten
tive reader of the Chronicle, qid Forney's
clamor about Ex-Preidant. Davi:' overcoat
greatly exercised thKa n ii h6n ro.
Dr. Craven states tt' on th4 10th of
November hist, in cotisequen'4o of "certain
comnmtents in ihe newspapers upon an over
coat having been ordered for Mr. Davis of
S. W. Owenis, a tailor of WIashington city,
lie received a brief official letter from the
Major General commanding" (Miles,) 'in
quiring if any o'ders had been given by him"
(Cravent) "for an'overcoat, for Jefferson Da
To this Important official interrogatory
Craven at once replied "respectfully, ' that
"lo did order a thick overcoat, woolen
drawers and under-shirts for 'Mr. Davis,
because the prisoner was feeble in health
and Ihe Winds of the coast cold and piero
iWpon this reply Miles chowed the cud of

hurled a second o-IluAil or ef at craven to
the effect that "in future you give no orders
for Jefferson Pavis without first communica
ting with these lJead Districts, and also
that in future your conversations with Jef
ferson Davis inust be confined strictly to
professional -matters." "i1'ead District"
Nliles then closed his angry order with the
following reference to the "ioinentotis
overcoat": "You will also report the price
paid for Jpfferson Davis' overcoat, and by
whom paid !" To this note Craven replied
that lie did "not know the cost of tie over
coat-had not received the bill, butwould
send it to deneral Miles when received."
A few days afterwnrds the noblo Miles,
burning with patriotic impatience, ag4in
wrote to Oraven asking "if the overcoat fur
nished to the prisoner hhd been paid for ?"
To thisletter Craven responded "that par
ties unknown had paid for the overcoat
without his approval, knowledge or con
sent." Thus ended the famous "overcoat
correspondence," which terminated the hu
mane and pleasant Intercourse of the illus
trioue prisoner and his kind physician. and
we allude to it editorially, as the picture
which is elsewhere drawn of Miles, would
be imperfect it this cha'raterlsqic corres
pomience was omitted.--Richtnond Times.
AN ENo1Move Foss,.-.-A recent

INDIAN COTTON.-India, perhaps,
more than any other part of the world
is iLtted to supply our markets with an
abundant, god and cheap supply cf cot.
ton. Hitherto the quantity of this im.
portant stap)le that has fouid its way to
Liverpool and other principal ports has
disappointed the anticipation of those
best acquainted with' its immense re
sources and capabilities; but when we
consider.the dilicuhies which had and
are still to byAtirn,ounted, we have rea
son to coiratulate ourselves .that so
much has been accomplished.- A glance
at the list ofcountries contributing cot..
ton will show that, a very c3isiderable
increase has taken place in the quantity
mow imported from our Easterit Empire;
and hvre we must, in justice, remark
that this result is, in a great meSsure,
if not altogether, attributed to thejwe
sistent, exertion the Cotton Supply A&4 '
sociation ot Manchester have pnt forth
to overcome the prejudices and naturaf
cona*rvatism of the narive mind, oad to
stimulate both the large and small pro
prie:ors to the cultivation of the cotton
plant wherever it could be grown with
siecess. It has now been demonstrated
satisfactorily that the land owners of
India will, as elsewhe're, give tip the
culture of their accustomud crops'where
they find it profitable to do so, and if.
only the force of the soil is seconded-b.
the use of modern agricultural, cleansing
nud pressing machinery, and the moas
of transport improved, - we may cdnfi
dently look to our possessions in the
East ultimately standing at the head of
tie list as a source of supply.
In al! these respects, however, India'
labors under very serious disadvantages.
Tho culture of the plant is carried on in
the most primitive manner, and with
ijqYlQments of the roughest and most
rtiquated character; the product is im
Pttfqy. cleane ; frequently no attempt
whatever idhd' to subject it to Uffod
Live and adequate preonure, and the
means of ransport; and ;htercomitnmica
Lion are positively disgraceful. If we
idd to these deawbacks the fact that the
irticle at present growti is niostly of
interior quality, simply because it is
raised from inferior seed, we have a
tate of things presented deserving of the
attention not merely of the mercantile
oMn11inunity, but aso of theGovernment.
