WOULD I?
Do you think If I'd a haby
Tliat I'd let him pull mv hair ?
Do you think I'd put on collars
Just to let him toil nnd tear?
Do you think I'd call it :iretty
Whon he bitos his litt.lo toe?
Yet I have known sone silly mothers,
With their babios, do just so.
Do you think I'd set him crying
Just to meo his cunning frown ?
Do you think I'd set, him walking
Just to see him tuu ble down ?
Would I call my baby prelty,
When he'd neither tooth ior Iuir?
Yet. ['ve known some silly mot hvrs,
With their babies, think they aro.
Would I buy him ,irtims and rattles
.Just, to hciu- himl mnake n.crash ?
Would I watchl himi me. delighted
Break mny nmirror aul I . ?lla I
Woid I sinot her him in flannols
Jlst. heuonnue hisi voice was low I
Doso him up with helhltonizna I
Silly lhier babies, think just so.
Wmoild I think his brow Ryronio
J1nt beeanSe it Was so htero ?
And his head Napoleonic
In its shmle, .mogh minus hair?
Could I Irace the utarls of gen ius
lit li. eyebrows archel aid low ?
Yet I've kiown somec silly nothers,
With their babies think just so.
Would I think my bnhy destined
To becone a inanit of imen
A nd go to govern and control them
By the iniyht of sword nnd pen ?
I dare say these noisy bahies
Plny the very deuce-I know,
'And I'vo sei the wisest women,

The future of the cotton prodict Is
now all interesting m:tter of speculation,
fr it involves our finaicial anld coin
mercial future. The prospect for the
next session is very bad, as we learn
fr-om various sources. Neithier capital
nor labor from the Northern States or
Europe is flowinig in~to the cotton region,
but, a considorable pollion ofthat which
was employed in the production of' cot
ton in 1860 will be with~drawn. The
politicail and financial policy of Congreco
is hostile in every way to the cotton
piodnet. Congress will reject any'
scheme for a more eqmitable distribution
of national batik currency in the South.
They will retain the cotton tax as a
means of encouraging thme wood-growers
of Vermont and Ohio. TLhey agitate,
