The Cotton Tirade.
The Liverpool cotton market fre?
quently exhibits some queer phases;
remaining steady in the face of large
shipments known to be on the way to
that port, and when these supplies
arrive in the docks, gives way from
fourpence to sixpence in ten days.
The New York Watchman has a
thoughtful and well-written article in
relation to a panic which occurred
* during tho week ending the 14th ult.
It says Jiat operators in the Liver?
pool market, as well as manufacturers
in the districts, were fully aware for
weeks and months of the heavy ship?
ments of cotton on the way from
India and America, and ' unless the
vessels bearing it were wrecked, it
was morally certain those large sup?
plies would be landed upon the .quay
at Liverpool. Yet thoy look upon
those hundreds of thousands of bales
upon the wave with the utmost indif?
ference^-tho market scarcely chang?
ing for the worse to the extent of a
heart-beat-and on one or two occa?
sions actually advancing in the face
of them, and then, when the cotton
begins to arrive, the trade flies off in
a panic, and prices aro pitched down?
ward sixpence sterling in almost as
many days! But there is no reason?
ing with a panic; words even of Solo?
mon's wisdom are lost, and it must
needs go on until its force is spent,
and then reason returns, as a general
thing, to see how silly we have acted.
Of course this extraordinary con?
dition of steadiness in the Liverpool
market had its effect on this side of
the water. Operators in New York,
and in the various markets through?
out the Union, were amazed at the
stiff bearing of the Liverpool market,
and as it stood up so long and well
up to the last week in March, they
were not prepared for the panic that
took place in the middle of April.
The Watchman was right in the
opinion it expressed in the article we
refer to, written in its issue of the 6th
inst., that there would be a recovery
from this fright. The quotations we
have received from time to time since
the 14th April show that the market
had recovered the declino in part.
Liverpool dates of the 20th brought
an advance of %d. to }?d. On the
26th, the advance during the week
was ld., and, on the 29th, the market
remained about tho same, and though
the receipts will be probably heavy
for a time, yet tho proportion ol
American cotton will most likely be
small. On the arrival of the news ol
the heavy decline in the New York
market, the Southerners who had
cotton in that market on sale,
were prompt to telegraph theil
agents not to sacrifice it, as they felt
k certain the tempest abroad would
t soon subside, and once the unfavor
% able prospects for the next orop were
fully known, there would be an im
portant rally, and prices bound up
ward as rapidly as they had fallen.
If there bo any large amount o
truth in the reports we receive fron
various cotton-growing States, rela
tive to the comparative worthlessnes;
of the seed, there can be little doub
but the markets here and abroad
when this becomes known, will no
only continue firm, but ultimate!
advance to a considerable extent, j
writer remarks, that if the seed ha
lost its vitality from being too lon
stored, caused by ill-advised restrk
tive legislation in several of th
States, and if no better can be prc
cured, corn will have to tako th
place of cotton. This month wi
probably decide ono way or anotlu
what the result will be.

Our telegraphic despatches, yester?

political equality in the Union, gloat?
ing over' her present impoverish?

A writer in the New York Times
predicts that if prices of cotton should
fall in this country, during the next
twelve months, to twenty cents, the
tax of five cents would bo intolerable,
while a fall of twelve cents would re?
sult in the total ruin of the planters
and an entire suspension of cultiva?

THE CAPTURE OF JEFFERSON DAVIS.
It appears from the records of the
War Department that, with the ex?
ception of the President's proclama?
tion, none but verbal orders were
given for the capture of Jefferson
Davis. Major-General Wilson says
that Lientenant-Coloftels Harndon
and Pritchard are entitled to great
credit for the zeal and activity with
which they conducted the pursuit,
and that it is but simple justice br?
these worthy officers to remark that
they were ignorant of the reward at
tho time of the capture. Colonel
Pritchard says it was so dark that he
could not distinguish the uniforms.
Nothing is said in the narrative
about his being disguised.
Tho Washington Chronicle is get?

the "Dead Duck" has had the .sub?

According to a decision by the Com?

Wendell Phillips, of Boston, is tho

gress plainly announce its belief that
no otate lately in rebellion is fit to be

and then let Congress adjourn. Every?

long for the work. The treason of
President Johnson, and the impossi?
bility of impeaching him, leave no
hope of any earlier settlement. It is
just as well, and much safer, to ac?
knowledge this. To adjourn and go
to the people on this issue is saving
time. In this way, spite of the Pre?

may yet bo saved. With the lines

Very unfavorable reports come up

the present condition of the growing
crops. The excessive rains which fell
a few weeks agu, succeeded by st rong
winds, were very injurious, and fol?
lowing these, we have bad more rain

Oats wero seriously injured by the

to bc good. Altogether, the present
prospects are not at all encouraging.

due to other causes than inefficiency
on the part of the freedmen. Of
