all competitors, and to produce a good art
ole cheapr than any other country.
Speaking roughly, we may say that before
the war we only bought Indi-a cotton be
cause it was cheaper than Orleans, and
Bgyptian or Brazil because we wanted that
special quality forspecial purposes, and be
qause the Unitu States could not send as
quits.s much is we required. But negro
labor in the oottoh States will be neither as
cheap; as abundant, nor an reliably at com
moond as It usqd to be; probably years may
elapse before the American crop attains its
former dimensions, and it can never, in all
likelihood, be grown at its former cost. We
must, perhaps, fiever look-certainly not
for a long period-to have middling Orleans
sold in Liverpool, as it has been, at 44. per
pound, with a handsome profit on the transe
#mtion.
But we have no idea that either Egypt or
India will at any time be able to grow cotton
as suooessfiull. or economically as the Uni
ted 6tates, and the result whlch all oonsid
eratfops point to as the most . probable we
appredtf to be this: The Amoren supply
