Cotton ?nd tU* Cotton Taut.
A late Liverpool circular estimates
that tho atook of American cotton on
hand, nt seo, and to arrive by De
comber 31, at 680,000 bales, which
would be equal to 20,000 bales per
week; while tho stock of East India
cotton on baud, and expected to ar?
rive by tho sumo dato, is estimated nt
925,000 boles, equal to a weekly sup?
ply of 36,000 bales.
Tho iucreaso of the production of
foreign cotton is going on slowly,
but surely; and the last Liverpool
advices show that, although tho mar?
ket had assumed a degree of activity,
yet quotations had declinerl, from tho
1st instant, over With an esti?
mated crop bf 2,500,000 or 3,000,000
bale?, it is not likely that thoro will
be any considerable or permanent
advance in prices-indeed, a declino
may ho looked for.
Under these circumstances, with
tho efforts now being successfully
made to extend the cultivation of
cotton to countries where experi?
ments aro being mado for tho first
time, tho tax OD Southorn cotton, im?
posed by tho Congress of tho United
States, is not only unwise and injudi?
cious, hut may ovontually provo fatal
to its production on the fiuest cotton
lauds iu tho world. Thoro is also a
strange inconsistency iu thia legisla?
tion; for whiio all tho Acts of Con?
gress profess and uro designed to fa?
vor thc freedmen-tho cotton-growers
of tho Southern States-yet that body
imposes this heavy tax on their labor,
thus not only crippling tho energies
of tho land-owners, and driving thom
to tho cultivation of rjQier produce,
but makes tho poor laboMff pay $10
or $12 per bale for ovory Dalo of cot?
ton ho raises.
Wc could wish, but do not hopo,
that Congress will, at its present ses?
sion, repeal this tax. A resolution,
however, looking to such :i movement
was objoetod to, so mo days ago, and
therefore could not be introduced.
Tho secret of its continuance is only
to bo fouud in tho persistent efforts,
in moro ways than ono, of tho East?
ern manufacturers, who uro benofitted
iu tho purchase of their supplios to
tho extent of that tax. It is for this
that the white producer is deprived
cf his natural profit on tho produc?
tion of tho groat staple, and for this
that tho freedman is nu justly shorn
of a portion of tho fruits of his labor
and industry. But this policy, if con?
tinued, must, in tho long run, prove
disastrous to tho Northern manufac?
turers, for tho production of the
Southern staple will cease, or become
so greatly diminished, that they will
havo to look for their supplies abroad,
and como into competition with Man?
chester, which would have all tho ad?
vantages o vor tho spindles and looms
of tho East, both in tho cost of trans?
portation aud of manufacture, in
which tho former competitor excels.
Tho Southern farmer eau raise other
products, and livo; manufactures
can bo built up; and tho people, no
longer seduced by largo profits on tho
production of their favorite staple,
will seek other departments of in?
dustry, and attend more closely to
tho development of their vost and
various resources. Ou tho whole,
therefore, we do not know but that
the short-sighted policy of taxing tho
leading product of tl^ soil of the
South may, in the end, prove benefi?
cial to her people.
A letter from Buonos Ayres says:
.'Largo numbers of thoso unfortunate
meu and womeu, beguiled from tho
United States to omigrato to Brazil,
begin to find their wuy there. They
arc ppor, helpless, deceived, and aro
witnesses of tho folly of leaving tho
United States for any country under
tho sun. Deceived by runners of
various kinds, and fiually enlisted in
tho army, is tho fate of many a
poor follow. That Brazilian Bohemo
(swindle?) ought to bo exposed.

Tho Houston (Texas) Telegraph is
urging, with much ability, tho occu?
pation of Mexico hy tho F?deral
Government. It waubs Congress to
add Mexico to tho Fifth Military Dis?
trict, and tells Gen. Sheridan that, if
ho will only undertake to reconstruct
that etato of "provisional govern?
ment" over thoro, ho will find many
a man ready to go with him, under
thc United States flag, whom ho now
Some week or two ago, thc Ben
nettsville Journal gave notice of a
lectnro or address that wonl(l be de-1
livered io that place, auder thu title
of "Hew to tho line-let the chips
fly as&iey may.'1 It appears that it
was an essay delivered before the
Sons of Tomperanoe, by D. D. Mo
Coll, Esq. A -writer in tho Journal \
explains tho cuption or title as fol?
"For tho particular information of
the Phoenix, he must understand that
hewing of wood is a process by which
a piece of timber is marked off with
a line, in the direction reqmired, and
thou, with a broad-axe, is squared
according to thnt line-in which ope?
ration many chips are thrown off,
calculated to draw off the attention,
and cause the lino to bo forgotten,
whereby the object iu view is defeat?
ed. The application is made "where,
in tho business of lifo, small trifles
that will fly about like chips aro suf?
fered to iu terrero with useful pur?
poses, nud thus sacrifico tho great
end in view to tho attraction of un?
worthy objects. Tho duties of lifo
aro to bo steadily pursued iu a
straight line, and all obstructions ure
to bo manfully removed as with a
broad-axe, keeping the eye upou tho
line, and not allowing it to be at?
tracted by anything else."
All right; nud we may add, that the
young orator who hewed to that line
during the late war, paying no atten?
tion to the chips of folly ami dissipa?
tion flying around him, will be obie
to present his block perfectly squared,
when called upou to render an nc
couut of life's labor by the Grand
Builder, at thefiuul day of reckoning.
ADDITIONAL APPROPRIATION NEED?
ED.-The New York Timm, of Thurs?
It seems that the attempt which j
Congress made, through Mr. 31c- j
Pherson, to establish a class of vio?
lently radical newspaper in thc
Southern States, will prove n failure,
unless additional donations from the
Treasury are promptly made. Neither '
tho whites nor tho blacks can bc
induced to read these journals, und ?
the special appropriation made to
them, tinder tho idea of compensa- j
tion fop publishing the laws of the i
United .St.des, is found altogether
inadequate to their necessities. Even j
Huunicutt's paper tn Richmond, the
New N?di?n, is iu its last stages.
Hence we read iu tho Tribune, of
yesterday, that "until Congress
makes an additional appropriation
for their support, as well as arrange?
ments to pay their bills promptly,
this class of journals will fail from
necessity." Wo, in cominan with
other groaning tax-payers, will watch
with interest to see whether, and in
what shape, Congress will make this

SUFFRAGE CN NEW YORK.-The Tri?
bune, of the 18th, says:
The convention yesterday, by tho
lecisive vote of 72 to 2M, defeated
Mr. Murphy's amendment to tho
majority report of the Suffrage Com?
mittee, in which he retained the pre?
sent property qualification of voters,
and provided for a separate submis?
sion of impartial suffrage to tho peu?
ple. This is well done, and is the
result of a week's debate, in which
tho Democrats had full opportunity
to produce all their arguments against
the rights ai colored men, from the
curs-! of Ham down to the latest
microscopic analysis of wool.
MEXICO AND THE FRENCH MINISTEN.
The following occurs among the
latest news from Mexico:
All the foreign representatives, ex?
cept the American Consul, are. pre?
paring to leave. ? postscript to thc
same letter, dated 9 p. m., says the
affair iu regard to the French Minis?
ter was not settled, us stated in the
lotter. His passports wore peremp?
torily refused, and he was told he
could not depart from the country
under any pretense. Tho authorities
informed him (hat Mexico had an
account to settle with Franco for the
part ?ho took during intervention,
and for tho lives and property de?
stroyed daring that period; omi if
the same is not properly and prompt?
ly adjusted, the Mexican Government
would proceed against the property
of French subjects throughout the
TEUIUIUJK DISEASE ALONU TUE
YA/.OO.-A terrible disease, similar
to the eholora, has broken out among
the freedmen on the plantations along
the Yazoo Uiver and in the lower
part of Carroll County, Mississippi
It hus every appearance of cholera,
but is confined entirely to the negro

whilst many of tho negroes ore dan?
TKXAS.-Tho Texas papers apeak
of a general disposition among tho
farmers of that Stato to letseu the
quantity and improve tho quality of
the laud they cultivate. This change
is caused by tho scarcity of labor,
which leads to improved cultivation
and on increase of production from a
given quantity of land. The im?
provement in the system of cultiva?
tion in Texas will ultimately extend
to all ports of tho South.
