A Perfect Slat eli.
TLe.]rwe:s dingle :n ber eirs.
Her waist is but a slender sy-ati :
And as ?he swings al'?ntr. ?he say?,
'Tua going to catch a dandy man."
Hi? hit i* in the latest style.
He ton s his cane with dainty hold ;
?nd as he struts about, he say?,
..I'm going to wed a :ool tor gold."
They come together at the ball.
They dance and jig, and waltz and whirl;
Her chess is fine, "demcitien foine,"
His purse is his hair in curl.
He i? "so nice," she is "BO rich."
He lacks for cents, sb? lacks for brains;
He flatters her, she dazzlet him.
They call each other "pretty names."
With gouty curse, papa says "yes-,"
Mamma says naught, mamma is dead :
His debts ar? large, her purse i s deep,
The lop ai.d lool together wed.
A marriage of "convenience" quite,
A very recherche affair:
"It's.inst the thing," hie friends aver,
"It's just the thing," her friends declare.
They bve "up town," in free stone front.
Tue halls are grand, the rooms are high;
The beau mr>n<!r from th er coaches trip,
And enter with an envious sigh.
They do not love, they do not hate.
Their only bends are those of law:
They frequent operas and plays,
And scorn the "dirty rabble, 2Wh!"
He held the cards, sbe held the stake,
Ihe lead was brass, the trump was gold ;
A perfect match, an even pair,
For he was bought, and she was sold.

Liverpool Cotton Market.
LIVERPOOL, March 2S-[For the week]-Cotton
.continues in fair demand at steady prices, the mar?
ket closing firmly, with Utile alteration from the
quotations of Thursday last. For sea islands there
has been onlv a limited demand at previous rates,
the inquiry being chiefly for the medium qualities,
the higher and lower grades being for the time
neglected. American fully supports former prices,
and ls in extensive demand; and the business in cot?
ton io arrive is still very large. New York advices
to tba 26th inst quote middling 25 J?c costing to sell
in Liverpool ic vd per sailing vessel or steamer.
Brazil has been pressed upon the market, and
rather Irregular in price, though the sales have been
considerable in extent. Egyptian bas fluctuated
daring the week, but closes at former rates. The
small quantity of East India available has been very
manifest, especially during thc last two or three
days, and prices are consequently U per lb dearer.
The last quotations for cotton to arrive are-Ameri?
can, basis of middling, ship named, from Charleston
