The Jay begins uiousfcious hotly.
Thc steam bath could not, be more pro?

again. Tha dog star is raging. Au?
gust, is usually, our hottest month ot,
Bummer. It seems as if, going out,
summer is resolved to make herself
.felt in fiery remembrances. Shudder?
ing at the prospect of-the day before
us. wc are reminded that wc have to
make ? grateful acknowledgment that
should have boen made s< vorpl days
?ago- We have had a rare gift of icc.
It Was Sunday last, we think, when
? dapper Ganymede earn? to our wig?
wam, bringing a neat little basket with'
a neat 'little napkin over it, and f'-ay-j,
lng, with a pleasant Ethiopcau smile,
betraying a doitblerow of teeth, white
.ts a shark's, and an immense territory
of white of eye, "Col. Shiver's com?
pliments, sir." . Wind, was in the'bas?
ket? Could it be a baby? What do
we want with babies in hot weufner- -
- in any weather? We wore relieved, as
the urchin added, "And* sends you
some ice.'' ".?Blessings upon Colonel
Shiver! Say we thank bim from the
bottom of our souls I" Thanks for nil
blessings that come in a lump. We
divided tiie lamp in many pro is. We
put it into various receptarles ol' food
or drink. Wu made it endure throiigh
dui the day. We ?mapped our fingers
at the sun. and kept refreshingly coed
?ii spite of the dog shir. We made
appeal to t,a; Northern Thor, from tin
verine*"-! of Sirius! We overthrow the
altars of Capricorn and Cauoler-iva
from t'a- crab. Of the former, we

our day by moonlight, and >i c<tj>i:e titi

fancies, untroubled by a musquito.
Ice is a warmer; iee isa charmer; icc
is, doubtless, of all care a disarm ar. !
Percival, the moody poet, who wrote
a thousand love verses, yet never
ventured to say love to any woman,
sine's -disconsolately of a "lum]) of
ice in the eleni" cold moon." Wi
prefer a lump of ice in a good
large spoon. He compares t oo afore
?aid lump of ic ' in the moon to
"a smiling eye and a bro lan hear!."
What- nonsense! Ice the simihtr.de
ol' a broken heart. -Fiddlesticks! Iee
is significant of a healthy stomach,
and a healthy stomach is the best sign
of a sound heart and au honest con?
science. Tile true seat of the affec?
tions is in the stomach, not the li en rt.
Whoever takes cares pf tho formel
may bc always sure of the integrity o!
the latter. It deals in the solids. ' Il

minds us .of a secret for keeping it
from wast;.--a most important secret
when the quantity is small and the
weather hot as tho innermost cavi?

A brother editor tells us that to

Finding all their efl orts to capture tho
the convoy fruitless, the rage of the
bandits became indescribable; ?iud
having succeeded in rally i uga part ol'
I tiv scattered forces, uumViering about
UKI men, one of the leaders made
another desperate dash on the train,
i which again proved a failure, the
j bandits laing this time more severely
j punished tuan before. After this last
attack, the '.'orces of Cortinas became
terrified, and being seized by a panic,
they broke ranks and lied i:i all direc?
tions, endeavouring if possible to save
themselves from being captured, The
loss o?' Cortinas in his several charges
was.not less ih:in 10!). Those of the
bandits who fell into the hands of oar
troops alive wire indiscriminately
shot. The loss of tho Imperial force?

I'rom Uie various* accounts ci the

the country, we make tho following
The Herald's correspondent, who hus
lately been through Northern Al?ba?

one continuous held of'-cotton. The
planters have ^jyen their attention to
tho business appin this year almost a;;
much as in anti-rebeliion, und thc

negroes are working tor their boviner

COTTON EN TEXAS.
From a recent letter from a promi?

take the annexed facts. Tho writers
estimate the stock ol' cotton now on

Of th/s growing crops- they s?,y, about
three-fourths of an average i..-v: been
planted*, which would give lSU.OOO tc
2ul),000 bales. The total, theieforc,
weean expect from-Texas, both of tuc

Thia is exclusive of what rutches th?
