- The Cotton Trade.
As a large portion of our readers
are more or less directly or indirect?
ly interested in the movements and
in the -Actuations of the price of
cotton, wo publish the following
artiole from the New York Mercantile
That never failing source of
anxiety, tho condition of the cotton
market, has again assumed such an
aspect as to awaken much remark in
business circles hore and abroad.
Last autumn the prospect of con?
tinued peace in Europe, and the re?
conciliation of all jarring elements
in both North and South America,
led every one to believe that the ex?
pected crop of American cotton
would not be sufficient to meet the
demand. But the revival of general
war excitement beyond the Atlantic,
filling every avenue of trade with
alarm, and the comparative stagna?
tion of commercial currents here,
huve produced results very different
from what the most skillful and ex?
perienced dealer in the great staple
would have predicted four months
\ ago. All the usual tests of business
seem to have failed upon this occa?
sion, and things are in so abnormal a
state, that it is difflonlu to reach any
At home, the usual movement has
been greatly impeded by causes
which have been repeatedly set forth
' and are now familiar to. the merest
child. Great Britain, our chief cus?
tomer, has been hampered by the
effeot of lost year's crisis, which con?
tinues to be very severely felt, and
while on one hand the demand for
manufactured goods has diminished,
on the other, owing to less produc?
tion, tho raw material has not been
so much required. Still, exportation
to tho British ports is sufficiently
maintained to indicate that they will
absorb a larger share of the crop than ,
they did last year. The general
estimate of the stock on hand at'
Liverpool was from 70,000 to 75,000
bales, but tho regularly ascertained
?gares are as follows; for 1866,
there were 267,000 bales American;
171,000 East India and China, and
115,000Brazil,Egyptian, Arc., making
a total of 553,000; for 1867, there are
332,000 American; Ul.000 India and
China, and 171,000 Brazil, &c, or
644,000 in all, exhibiting nu in?
crease of 91,000 for tho year, or
from 15,000 to 20,000 more than was
Tho best authorities think that j
this accumulation will grow until it
nearly equals, if it does not eventual?
ly exceed, comparatively, tho maxi?
mum of last year, and prove suffi?
cient to prevent any speculative
movement. When we uso tho guard?
ed ter ms employed above, our readers
will remember that it is feared that
the cotton crop for tho present year (
may be 500,000 bales less than tho
last. In addition to the disastrous .
influence of the recent inundations, .
many of the Southern planters have
become discouraged at tho prospects j
of the cotton business, and yield .
ready assent to the language of a j
portion of their press, seeking to in- .
duce their abandonment of tho old
staple and the subs; .tu ti on of cereal
orops in its stead. Tho continuance of ',
cotton tax is u powerful argument
on this side of the question. That ,
this burthen must be got rid of, or \
that our cotton production is in .
danger of serious decline, is only ,
too evident from the preference shown :
by European manufacturers for East '
India cotton, at the difference in ,
price of 2d. per pound.git is also clear (
that the Oriental growers aro making ,
handsome profits, while our own aro ,
reaping very, little, if any. Tho j
months of May and June will seo the ,
heavy arrivals at Livorpool from
India commence as those from the
United States fall off, and these will
swell the stock on hand to n point
that may thow all the control of
prices into the power of original
Notwithstanding that the existing
aspect of the cotton trado is, as wo
have pictured it, by no means moro
than usually encouraging, so favora?
ble a turn may yet be given affairs
both here and in Europe, within the
next sixty days, as to yield us sub?
stance for moro cheering comment.
For tho moment, however, tho
promise is not dazzling, and tho ex?
pectations of those who hoped for
better things last Autumn, must BOO

THU PRESIDENT'S PnEst.:;r VIEWS
OF RECONSTRUCTION.-A Washington
despatch states tho following, which
we cnn only say is doubtful-very:
"Tho latest bulletin ns to Presi?
dential reconstruction views would
place Mr. Johnson in direct hostility
to tho enemies of reconstruction
under the Congressional programme.
It is stated to-day, by a distinguished
Senator, that Mr. Johnson sincerely
regrets that any of tho Southern
States havo beeu so unwiso as to at?
tempt to ros truing he enforcement of
tho reconstauetion acts by injunction.
Nay, moro, it is oven said that so de?
termined to carry out tho measures
tliat, even should injunctions issue
from tho Supremo Court, ho would
disregard them. That is certainly a
very remarkable exposition of Presi?
dential views on this important sub?
ject; but it is vouched for by a very
reliable Senator. The samo Senator
anticipates that, by tho meeting of I
Congress next December, tho South?
am States will bc ready for admis
?ion, and tho great problem of recon
jtrnction will be solved, or, at least,
srery near its solution."

Delight," as prepared by "Heinitsh," ac?
complishes more for suffering humanity
than any other remedy now in uso upon
tho face of tho earth. This fact, and thu
wonderful cures it performs, is corrobo?
rated by living witnesses. The theory in
this: No disease eau bo cured without
cleansing and purifying tho blood, which
is the fountain of life. This combination
of alteratives and dopuratives produces
just that chango in tho functions of organ*
as to mako a healthy action to take tho
place of disease. Wo hear of feverishness
fluttering about tho heart, flushes, faint?
ing headache, loss of appetite, low spirits,
weakness, nervousness and a general
good-for-nothingness-all owing to fever
and humor iu tho blood; and this produce*
