The box ls not of stainless alabaster,
Which o'er thv feet I break;
Sor Ailed with costly ointment, gracious Master,
Poured for Thy sake.
Kay, rather ls it shape'n in this fashion
A living bea?.
Dashed au across with scarlet stains of passion,
And broke In part;
"While from Its open wonnd comes softly dripping,
Like slow tears shed,
On heavy drops, along Thy footstool supping,
Its life-blood red.
It needs no balm of myrrh for sweet or bitter,
Bat life and love;
The sad conditions makes mme offering fitter
Thy heart to move.
From aU these chains of cruel wrong and anguish,
This load of grief,
Wherewith my soul doth pant, and mourn, and
Give me reUef !
Tn Thy far home ls not Thy soul still tender
For mortal woe 1
Hear'8t Thou not still amid that spotless splendor
The seraphs know ?
Oh, turn Thy human eyes from heavenly glory I
Say as before
Those tenderest words of all Thy gospel story
. ? Go. sin no more."

Sm iib. Edward* 4i Co.'? Monthly Cotton
LIVERPOOL, June L-The past month has been
one of frequent oscillations In feeling, bat the
prevailing tone has been one of dullness, and we
close at \d decline on the quotations current on
the 1st ultimo.
At the date sf our last report a heavy feeling
prevailed; middling uplands were worth lld, and
fair Dhsllerah 9>id. The public were surprised at
the large scale of American receipts, which had
reached 50,000 bales for the last week in April.
The following week rose to the extraordinary
figure of 59,000 bales, and a depressed reeling was
cansed here; uplands landing were sold as low as
10??d, and Dhollerah, May shipment, at 9 5-i6d.
A sudden revolution of feeling occnrred the next
week ; the American receipts fell efl" to 3S,000 bales,
and the oft-repeated prediction again reappeared
that the crop was finished. Attention was also
strongly directed to the continued small ship?
ments of cotton from Bombay-the deficiency to
all Europe having by that time run up to 220,000
bales. Quite a speculative spirit was exhibited
here for some days; large operations took place
in arrival cotton, and prices advanced li to Jid
fi lb, bringing middling uplands and Orleans al?
most to il??d and ll Jid, both on the spot and to
arrive, and April-May shipment Dhollerah to 9??d.
The first check tf?s given to the market by the
news that the arrivals of cotton In Bombay had
increased very largely, the second week of May
being 30,000 bales, against 33,000 bales same week
last year; this was a blow to those exaggerated
notions of Indian deficiency which were then
prevalent. The next check to the market was a
very large Import, say 120,000 bales, in the third
week of May, which brought our stock np to
590,000 bales. Simultaneously with this, the "ir?
repressible" receipts In America again increased,
and reached 44,ooo bales that week. The joint ef?
fect of these various influences was to demoralize
the market, and a very heavy feeling set In, which
has lasted almost unabated till now. Prices
steadily declined, and middling uplands were
sold landing as low as io ?id, and Orleans at
lOJid. while May shipment Dhollerah was sold at
9d. These quotations showed a decline of a full
>?d from the highest point of the month. Ko Im?
provement was caused by last weeks receipts in
America falling to 30,000 bales, as lt was counter?
balanced by a large week In Bombay-77,000 bales.
The stock here Increased to 606,000 bales, being
the largest figure since 25th June, 1668.
The market closes flat (Tuesday) at the lowest
peint of the month; middling uplands worth
10#d to lojfd on spot and to arrive; fair Dhol?
lerah 9>?d to Otfd on spot and 9d for May ship?
Manchester market during the past month has
been more subdued in tone than tn any previous
month this year; there has probably been less ac?
tual business transacted, but the great extent to
which the trade are working under contract has
prevented any material decline, and we think,
upon the whole, there bas been more steadiness
In Manchester ihan In Liverpool. There still ap?
pears to be no difficulty in disposing of the large
production of Lancashire, but the remuneration
to the producers ls not great.
The consomption of cotton we do not consider
to have undergone any change, aad still place It
at 54,000 bales per week for the Kingdom.
The prospects of our market do not at pres?
ent offer many Important features to com?
ment noon; they have not altered In any very
material respect since oar last Issue, but the ten?
dency has been In the direction of larger supplies
of the raw material for the remainder of the year.
The estimates of the American crop have been en?
larged each month since the commencement o
tue year, and Instead of three millions which we
gave in our last circular as the probable result,
we would now put 3,100,000 bales as the figure to
which receipts are pointing; there seems even a
chance that that figure may be exceeded; the In?
terior stockB ?re still 65,000 bales against 24,000
bales last year, and wo do not hear as yet <>r ex?
haustion at any point. The news from America
has, however, lost much of tts Interest, and great?
er attention ls now given to Bombay. The in
creaslnz deficit from that quarter was op lill
lately the stronghold ot the speculative feeling
here; but opinon has much changed since the
heavy arrivals of the past few weeks were known.
lt seems probable that the total arrivals In
Bombay for the month of May will be about 3i?0,<
ooo bales, against 143.000 last year, and this will
yield a period of liberal exports as compared with
last y ear. The greatly Increased receipts in Bom ?
baftare only what might have been expected, in
consequence of the lateness of the crop, and do not
change in any important degree the views we have
already expressed, bat they have evidently alter?
ed the basts upon which many operators here
were acting. We now Incline to nuuk that thc
deficit In exports to Europe, which at present
stands at 224,000 bales, may be reduced by 1st
July to 100,000 bales, and that lt may be nearly or
quite extinguished by the end or the year; but
notwithstanding this we hardly expect that Hie
Import of East India colton into Europe this year
will equal last one, as we opened the year with
60,000 bales less afloat.
The shipments lr?m Calcutta and Madras also
continue very small and considerably below last
year. We are led to believe that Calcntta will con?
tinue so. but it ls premature to express an opinion
about the result of the Madras crop, as the new
cotton ls only beginning to arrive, and there ls
much uncert ain ty os to the yield.
One feature bas attracted much attention of
late, viz : the large clearances from Bombay hy
steamers. Several enormous cargoes have re?
cently left for the Suez route-one of them n.uuo
bales-and it ls thought that the total exports bv
that ronte In May will nearly Bum np 100,000
huies. The consequence is that we will have as
liberal arrivals of Surat cotton tn June and Jnlv
as at anytime this year, and sur stock will be
swelled in the -um mer months oy a large share of |
the Indian crop that would formerly have been
on the water till September, it therefore seems
probable that our stock In this port cannot be
materially reduced dnrlDg tue next two or three
months, and it will be very clinic alt In conse?
quence to bring about or sistaln any Important
Increased attention will also be given to the
?"owlng American crop; a good "stand" has been
already obtained, and the accounts from all
som ces agree that there ls a decided increase In
the breadth cf land planted, more labor available,
and much more capital expended on fertilizers
and improved Implements of husbandry. Already
there are predictions of a crop of three and a half
alliions for next year, and although any such
opinions at present are the merest guesses, yet a
state of feeling ls Indicated thereby which has an
Important bearing on the prospects or our
in connection with this, we may remark that
already several contracts have been made here
and in Manchester for the shipment of the new
crop In October and November; the prices paid
a?e various, as also the terms of sale, but the av?
erage was abont loy?d for middling uplands, de
livered la Liverpool.
We are not inclined to look for much further de?
cline thld summer. There ls still a remarkable
deficit in th'' supply visible for England compared
with last year, say
Stock In Liverpool.606,000 429,000
Stock In London. 27,000 75,000
Afloat for Great Britain.303.000 cot,ooo
Total. 835,000 1,099,000
Deficit 163,000 ba'es. against which ls to be act
an increased stock in American ports of 125,060
bales. But for the canal shipments from Bombay
there would bea very moderate stock here during
the summer months. These canal shipments are
mainly at the expense of the Cape clearances,
which should arrive here in September and Octo?
ber, and in consequence our stock will rapidly
decline in those months, instead of Increasing, as
lt has often done. The probability ls that during
October, November and December we will have
but little Increase on the corresponding stock of
last year, taking lt In the aggregate, though
American cotton is not likely lo run BO low. There
1? but little surplus for oar spinners todraw from,
and they cannot afford to KO largely Into stock
without starting prices here. At present they
hold very little stock, and this will be an element
In favor of our market should any news reach ns
from America unfavotable to the growing crop.
We have not here alluded to the great increase
in the stocks on the Continent, as compared with
last year. It will reduce our export demand dur?
ing the remainder of the season, but lt appears
that the consumption of the Continent has also
Increased materially, and there are few signs that
lt has received any real surplus beyond whut RB
consuming power can deal with.
The general prospects of our market appears
to point to tolerable stability of prices-a state of |
things more advantageous to consumers than to
speculative operators, and we are not inclined to
look for a further decline at present. It seems
more likely that a slight improvement will luke
place when the trade begin to buy more freely,
as they must soon do.

pa* THE LIFE SUSTAINING OE
GAN'S.-Tue two organs which minister most di
rectly to the support of the body, are the stomach
and the liver. In the former the first procees of
digestion takes place under the action of that
powerful solvent, the gastric juice. Thence the
food, converted Into a pulp, passes Into the duo?
denum, where lt ls subjected to the action of-the
bile or gall, flowing from the liver, and of the flujd
generated by the pancreas, or sweetbread of the
system. These secretions separate the nutritious
portion from the rest, aud it ls then taken np by
the absorbent vessels and conveyed Into the chan?
nels of circulation in the form of venous blood,
while the waste matter ls discharged through the
bowels. Unless all these processes are duly per?
formed, disease of some sort 19 Inevitable, and the
best of all medicinal agents for preserving or res?
toring the tone and regulating the action of the
three organs-the stomach, liver and intestines
by which the three-fold work is carried on, ls
HOSTETTER'S STOMACH BITTERS. Indigestion
is generally accompanied by constipation, and
the general cathartic operation of the Bitters is
no less important in cases of this kind, than its
tonic effect upon the stomach and the biliary
gland. Beauty of person as well as health, de?
pends in no small degree upon the regularity of
the excretive functions. A sallow complexion, a
thick, opaque coarse skin, a tainted breath, rush
of blood to the head, loss of memory, headache,
and extreme mental depression, are the usual ac?
companiments of costiveness. A course of the
Bitters will infallibly relieve, and finally banish
these obnoxious symptoms, while invigorating
the stomach and promoting healthy action In the
liver. The genial vegetable stomachic and alter?
ative, strikes at disease in tts primary sources,
the assimilating, secretive and expulsive organs,
and the curfs lt effects are consequently thorough
pa* LABOR-LABOR IS CAPITAL.
Bestow good health upon a man, so that he can
labor every six out of seven days, and no matter
how poor he may have been at the commence?
ment of life's great race, he will be certain to ac?
cumulate a fortune, provided he takes care of his
earnings. PLANTATION BITTERS ls certain to
make the weak ones strong, and to preserve the
health of the healthy. ' From four to six hours ls
considered the ordinary limit for brain work.
At the expiration of this time lie phosphorus ls
carried off, and the man becomes irritable and
nervous. If he is poor, and continues on at his
task, as most of poor doctors, lawyers and edi?
tors do, he will be certain to shorten his days
and fill an untimely grave, as did Slr Walter
Scott, unless he uses PLANTATION BITTERS,
which speedily restores his vital energy, repairs
his indigestion, and corrects the sluggish circula
tlon of bis blood.
