THE COTTON CROP-ITS 1? ? TURE.
That most oxcollont journal, the ".financial and
Commercial Chroniclo," of January 26, contains
tho following article on the cotton prospecta for
tho yoor, which our readers -will find worthy of
perusal : '
In estimating tho bearing of tlioso probabili?
ties of a reducod supply upon tho value of raw
cotton, it is necessary, also, to take into account
tho prospects of the supply Groat Britain is iik'lv
to draw from other countries than tho United
States. With reforonco to the chief sources of
Kastern production, tltcro appoars to bo a general
disposition to moderate the estimates entertained
a fow wooks ago. Tho grounds of this chango of
opinion in England aro . thus alluded to by our
London correspondent, undor dato of January 5 :
"With regard tb tho cotton trade, it may be' ob?
served that although spinners may purchase with
extremo caution, the present rango of prices must
at least bo maintained, owing to tho small quanti?
ties of thc staple afloat, and tho prospect, there?
fore, of a small importation for somo weeks to
come, ?io far aa is at prosont ascertained, tho sup?
ply of East Indian Cotton afloat i3 under 100,000
biles, while at this dato in 1866 tho quantity known
lo bo on passago to Europe was nearly 200,000
bales; and with regard to Amorica, it appears that
only 32,000 balos arc on passage, against 60,000
bales in 1866. These figures are certainly in favor
of continued firmness in tho cotton trade; hut, ns
successive advices from India report steadily in?
creasing shipments of cotton to Europe, spinners
will evidently continuo to operate cautiously in
concluding sales. At latest elate, viz., Docomber
21, the Bhipmonts of cotton from Bombay were
progressing at ibo rate of about 16,000 bales per
week, hoing a considerable increase as comparod
wiih the previous weeks; and, as tho soasou for
now cotton bad just commoncod, there seems to
bo every probabilit. that with tho continuance ot
favorable advices from Liverpool the exports from
Bombay will be on a much niore,_extcnsivo seale,
niese advi-cs, we know, haye been favorable to
:bo growers of cotton in xhd.a; hence thoro eau bo
Jut little doubt as to tho nature of our future ad?
rices from thc East. In tho course of a month or
lix weoks wo shall most prob .biy observe a largo
ncrease in tho quantity of East Indian cotton
ifloat. In Egypt the crop of cotton hos certainly
(eon productivo of disappointment. We were lod
o anticipate a crop of 600,000 balos, but subse
[acnt advices have reducod tho estimate to
.00,000, and finally to 300,000 balos. That thc crop
3 by no means so extensivo as was announced at
hs commencement of tho season may ?3 consul
red cortain; but in the present position of the
otton trade? statistics relating to the probablo
?reduction of cotton in any country should bo well
nth entreated b fore full reliance' is placed upon
heir correctness. It may,- however, be looked
pou as certain that tho crop of cotton in Egypt is
uperior to last year, although there is so con
tdorable falling off from tho statements made at
[ie opening of tho season, with regard both to tho
xtent and quality of tho crop. Our latest advices
rom Aloxandriareport fair shipments of produce
?om that port since November 1, but as compared
ith 1864 there is a falling off of about 7000
These combined considerations require a mat o
al curtailment of estimates of tho total supply
om all sources entertained two or tliroo months
;o. The reduction mav bo roughly represented
y 250,000 bolos for the United Slates, 250,000 for
idia, 250,000 for Egypt, and 50,000 for Braz?, ma
ing a total curtaumont of original estimates
mounting to 800,000 balos. These aspects of the
inply have produced a strong disposition among
alders of cotton to stand firmly for higher prices;
feeling not shaken by tho movotr-ent among
am estie manufacturers for further curtailing their
rod jction of goods.
Surveying the general condition of the world's
larkets, it would soem reasonable to expect an
:tive demand for cotton goods during tho present
The political status of Germany is settled, with
nt, at least, any prospect of immediate disturb
aco, and with less commercial derangement than
tight have been expected; and tho Eastern quos
on which, until recently, loomed darkly in tho
orizon, presents no features likely to disturb tho
xger marketa for cotton manufactures. Tho
me of business in Manchester is assuming a
tore hopeful aspect, and spinners do not show
ny reluctance tb buy cotton freely atcurro.-,t
Among those best acquainted with the condi
on of the South and with the disposition of col?
in growers, the opinion is stronglv cherished that
ie next crop will bo moro limited than has bcou
enerally expected. There can bo no doubt that
ie profits upon the present crop are too insignifi
vnt to encourage an extension of this branch of
reduction. Th i unwise tax upon cotton bears
ith great severity upon the growers, and has
sallowed up nearly all the profits upon the crop,
ho burthen of testimony goes to show that, with
ie enhanced costs of labo-, and tho une. rtainty
bout its employment, it is impossible, upon an
verase, to raise cotton for less than 25 couts per
ound; and addir a to this the tax of 3 cents and
ie now heavy charges for transportation, it is
lear that there is no inducement to lay out any
irge breadth of land in the production of thc
The Soutborn crops of cereals, during the past
ear;-rfave fallen below the wants of that section,
nd breadstuffa bavo consequently ruled high; it
therefore, reasonable to suppo?o that this ycai
tore attention will bo given to grain culture and
;ss to cotton-growing; and the more so as thost
tops are less subject to suffer from the risks o
ne seasons and tho irregularity connected witt
be present condition of the new labor system.
The conclusion indicated by a survey of all thosi
?nsideratinns appears to favor \erv decidedly th<
ireva?ing firmnetjn o? ti,0 cotton market.

REPORTED VIEWS OF SECRETARY STANTON ON THE
[TOATION.--The Washington correspondent of
ie Boston Post sonds tho following to that
Hon. John Covode colled upon Secretary Starl?
in yesterday, and thore ensued a long and friend
' discourse on tho status of the country. Mr.
tonton appeared very desirous of discussing the
nrrent events of national- import, and expressed
imsolf freely. Ho confossod that from the very
ntset the disputations of thc Executivo and Leg
ilotive branches of-tho Government hod caused
im the liveliest alarm, which, since the movo
icnt toward impeachment, hod increased to an ap?
rehensi?n of revolution and anarchy. Tho bur
en of his remarks was in regard to cert'.in acts
r the President and Congress, and he pointed
loomily to the deleterious effects of each apon
ic nation. In parting with Covode. Mr. Stanton
?uiuvked; "I aided to place two millions of men
i the field to pat down tho rebellion; three bun
red thousand have bitten the dust, and an equal
umber are cripples throughout tho land; and yet,
ith all this tremendous effort and corrosponding
icritice, tho country, in rat judgment, is shadowed
ith gloom of a darker hoar than was incident to
ay crisis of the late war. " This latter expression
T Mr. Stanton's solicitude is given me with
?rupulous exactitude by a gentleman minutely ac
nainted with every circumstance in tho promises,
nd who further avers that tho Secretary seemed
jmpletely unmanned when ho uttered the last
'mark, und abruptly turned from his visitors to
onccal his emotion.

it stands at the head of all the tonic and alterative prepa- j
rations in existence Its celebrity has evoked many imi?
tations but NO"KIVALE. - Physicians pronounce it tho only
safe stimulant that has ever been introduced into the
sick chamber. Di the Hospitals of tho Army and Navy
the surgeons Ondit tba very best tonie for convalescents,
and report it as invaluable for sustaining the vigor of |
troops on thc march, as a remedy for scurvy and all scor?
butic affections, and as the only specific for sea-sickness.
(California and Australia have emphatically endorsed lt ?
as the Morant's MEDICINE par excellence, and in Spanish j
America and all the tropical climates, lt ls considered 1
the only reliable antidote to epidemic fever.
There is no mystery about the causes of its success.
It ia the-only stomachic and alterativo in which are com?
bined the grand requisites of a mild, pure and un vi dated j
vegetable stimulant, with the finest selection of tonic,
anti-bilious, anti-scorbutic, aperient, and depurativo I
herbs, plants, roots, and barks, that have ever been inter- j
mixed In a medicinal preparation.
It is also proper to Btate that the Bittora are sold exclu" |
'slv ely in glass, and no vcr, under any circumstances, by j
Ute gallon or the burel. Impostors and imitators are
abroad, and the only safeguard the public has against
them ia, to see that the Bitters they buy bear the en?

volley of Saratoga Its virtues ore such as have secured
lt the high encomiums of all who have used it, possess?

From SAMUEL HENRY DICKSON.- M. D., Professor
Practice of Physic, Jefferson Medical College, Phila?

j PHILADELPHIA, November 15, 1805.
I have been for a year or more past in the habit of
tating tho water of tho "Excelsior" Spring of Saratoga.
Accustomed during the groat portion or my invalid life
to use the different waters of the several fountains which
boil up along that remarkable valley, dependent, indeed,
upon them lor much of tho comfort I enjoy, I om satis?
fied that tho. Excelsior Water is as well adapted as any
other among them, if not more so, to the purposes far
which ticy are generally employed. It is vary agreeable,
Btrougly impregnated with the carbonic add, lively and
sparkling. * . * I con heartily and conscientiously
recommend it to all who need a gentle cathartic and
diuretic. SAMUEL HENRY DICKSON, M. D.

I have always recommended tho Faber Polygrade
Lead Pendis as tho only pencils fitted for both ornamen?
tal and mathematical drawing; but, after a thorough
trial of the American Polygrade Lead Pencils, mau
ufaclurod by Ihejjftmerlcan Lead Pencil Company, New
York, I find them-Buporior to any pencil in use, even to
the Faber or the?fcld English Cumberland Lead Pencil,
being s superior pencil for sketching, ornamental and
mechanical drawing, and all tue ordinary uses of a lead
These pencils oro very finely graded and have a very
smooth lead; even the softest pencils hold the point well;
they are all that can be desired in a pencil. It gives me
great pleasure to he able to assure Americans that they
will no longer be compelled to depend upon Germany or
any other foreign market for pencils,
