The Lo?t Spring
"The year has been robbed of its Spring ."-Pen
ci? on the death of Athenian youth in batt'e.
Trna words and tsuder strain.
Immortal Greek !-again
Tired Summer faints; for ob, with dew? rain,
Aud rosy dawninps clear.
Though all thy months were here,
Rejoicing Spring, wo missed thee from the year 1
Hence Autumn is not glad;
Gray heads are bowed and sad
Her scanty crown reminds them what she had
Ere War and Spectral Fear,
And Love, to deck the bier
Of youthful heroes, spoiled the vernal year.
And Winter is more stern;
Prone on his chilly urn.
Earthwards ho mutters, "She will not return;
Our youth sleep far and near,
Like them, sho does not hear
The loud March wind, the birth-cry of the year !
The skirtine poplars fling
Green banners of the Spring
High on tbs air; the BOUTS their offering brinj.
Pale flowers to 8orrow dear,
Ind many a shining tear,
But t'.ou-where art thou, glory of the year ?
Ihe briar at noon is sweet;
and. cool to cloven feet,
The ways-i ie grass feels not the climbing heat;
But lo 1 where stark ar d sear.
Stands, like a shattered spear,
ome leafless signal of the stricken year.
The Stream in splendor flows,
Mor shrinks when Taurus glows;
Her bosom is still cold with mountain snows.
O Touts, serene, severe 1
O shining, swift career !
Gone is the srace, the glory of tho year.
Upon dead Freedom's breast,
Bright, curly heads are pressed.
Ah I many a flory heart is here at rest I
True words, old Greek I how drear
Without her tones of cheer,
. Without her smile, how sullen is the year.
Forever ort thou fled
Spirit that, i miling, bled
Ey Athens' w?U ? How late we saw thee tread,
With Hope, thy nur compeer,
In haggard Battle's rear.
Flower-footed spring, nor missed thee from the year.
O God, bring back the Spring;
In V4in ihe thrashes sing
In vain wild harps ia leafy forests ring;
Their music, in oar ear,
Is harsh, till she appear.
Till Thou, at last, reclaim the perfect year.

hinge mainly upon thc outturn of tue American crop,
and the opinion? held by tho public regarding i*.
We are sony t ? report that th e account* lor somo
lime past have bec-a tho ravorsc o: s-tisfactory.
rrem samo of tho leading districts reports arc re?
ceived of crest havoc by worms, and, speaking gen?
erally, the rccc-jt heavy rains appear to have done
much damage. These accouuts come both by letter
ani by telegraph, and are loo ciplicit lo be disro
g arde I. Public i pinion iii Amer ci ii evidently fond?
ing to liwer estimates than prevailed tome time
a?o, and whtreai it was once generally thought tint
the yield would exceed tho last by 200,0t'0 bales, lt is
now considered very doubiful il there will beany
excess at nil. It is no doubt true that the t rop ia
conjiderably earlier than lost year, and tho receipts
are likely for some weckt to exceed largely the cor?
responding one? of last season. But this need ex?
cite noMirprue; for last crop was one of the lat?st
ever known, and, besides that, there was a stoppage
of business at the Gulf porls from yellow lever; but
this year there is every inducem mt lo send iorwurJ
rapidly-the price is tempting, (he planting interest
extremely poor, nnd iacilitics for trouait gool. Wo,
theielore .ook for rapidly increasing receipts, and a
large excess upon last year by tho eud of this month,
and after that pcrioJ, i": the icports we now leeeive
prove correct, th. rc is likely to bi a chango for the
worse in the comparison wi h lost year.
The excessively ?mall SIOCK ol American cottcn
held hero puts tint class in a very strong position,
and it will re6ocud readily to any news favorablo to
the market. We consider it, nader all the circu li?
steners oi the case, relatively cheap. Indian cotton
holds a somewhat different position. For several
weeks to come the import rau*t bc very heavy, and
the stock here will probably iucrease to 300.000 or
358,01,0 bales. It might 02 fairly assumed thal some
decline would Uk? piece during the pressure of so
large an import, and wcro good accounts coming of
the American crop this would likely take placo; but
under the artual circumstances of tho case a decline
in Surat cotton seems doubtful. It is wall known
that the largo impt rt now due will be the bwt cl any
magnitude for many month-! to come, and itispar
ftct'y evident that in the spring of next year the
stock of. ur.its will again dwindle to a more hand?
ful. Tb? knowledge ol this will stimulate demand
uUriRp thc period of abundance, and give holders
confidence, and to it is prohibi? that the effect of
large arrivals is rretty weil discounted.
Mail accounts have now been received of the dara
nge done by the floods to the lucian cotton crops in
the Dhollerah and Broach district-. It appears to
bavu been very serious ind?e ), bat as a set-off
against it we would remark that tho area planted in
India th>* year was veryl irge, and tlier.fore it is
premature io infer that our supply from that quarter
for next year will bo ro lured. Tho Bengal crop is
also said to have in tiered severely.
Thc shipment* of cotto:i from the minor ptrls ol
India have been larger than u?ual during tbe aulumu
months, and have attracted some alton ion, but from
Bombay they hive now almost ceased. We expect
that they wiil bc ? erv small ior tue remainder of this
year tro n all tb* lud?an ports, and consequently the
statistical position ot Surat cotton will steadily im?
'1 he account* received of thc progress of tho Egyp?
tian crop are very satisfactory, aueian incr ased >ield
isexpeccd. From Brazil, ?l60, increased supplies
are looked for next year.
