WAIU1NUTOH l FRIDAY AFT.KK.NOON, AUGUST 8. Tlie Cottou Plant. It is scarcely more easy to determine the latitudes, or ratlier the climates, within which cotton flourishes, than the qualities of the cot ton produced in different countries. These qua lities may be determined by the demand for them in the great cotton markets of the world; and as England and the United States are tbe two great markets, that which is most sought and used in these markets must possess the best qualities. Why does Mr. Greeley so strenu ously contend for heavy protective duties 1 In part, because of his belief in the great skill of the British dealors anil operatives in cotton. Long practice and thorough attention have per fected in them a knowledge of the qualities of different clusscs of cotton, as well fts of the dif ferent modes of manufacture; therefore they are formidable competitors with our own deal ers and artizans. There are three countries from which con siderable amounts of cotton come to the British market, yet the United States supplies about two-thirds of all its demand. These countries are India, Egypt, and Brazil. India is an ap pendage of tha British crown; and England has long studied how to render it subservient to her wealth, and has made the effort to produce cotton in it equal to that of the United States. The effort has been entirely unsuccessful. Eng land would borrow and pay down, deeply as eh* is in debt, one hundred millions of pounds sterling to any man, or set of men, who would ^>rove to her certainly, that, by a process not involving great expense in the production, India could be made to produce as good cotton as the United States. She would then lay a discrimi nating duty on American cotton, and give the market principally to her own. She feels her dependence on us for cotton a galling yoke. That dependence is the principal source of her late and interested civilitics. She has come slowly and painfully to the conviction, that to strive to ^ destroy the fiat of nature's God, who has oreated a soil and climate in America pecu liarly suited to this plant, is a worse than use less effort. Egypt supplies her with consider able cotton, whioh is so mixed with the fine but multitudinous sand inseparable from its soil, aB greatly to deteriorate its quality. The cotton of India has defects seemingly both of climate and soil. Tbe inferiority of the Indian and Egyptian cotton is altogether irremediable. Brazilian, in process of time, by more skilful cultivation, might probably be brought tome what to diminish her consumption of American, but not to an important extent. Thus, for at least a century?long enough, i if we act wisely and continue united, to ac cumulate unprecedented wealth?the United States are likely to continue the great cot ton producers. Including that part of Texas fitted for the cotton culture, but a small part of which has yet been employed for that use, the South has a territorial capacity for producing cotton equal to five millions of bales per annum. If the world could be preserved in peace, thirty years would bring the United States up to that actual production?a cotton crop equal to about one hundred and fifty millions of dollars per annum. But inasmuch as there is too much reason to believe that but a few years will bring , on a general war in Europe, the progress of the cotton culture must necessarily be affected by the vicissitudes of Empires and States. It is quite a mistake to believe, that in the midst of war the pursuits of industry can thrive as in the midst of profound general peace. Popula tion is the great basis of wealth, ordinarily; even those nations, such as the Romans, who, in the latter stages of their conquests, behaved with so much rapacity and injustice, neverthe less looked to the preservation of the population and industry of the conquered as the sources of their own opulence; and often were the arts of a plundering proconsul exerted in vain to shield hiaflelf from punishment or contempt, because of the deep conviction of the Roman people that the prosperity of the subject provinces was In timately interwoven with their own. It was not until wealth overflowed, and corruption reached its height, that there men could protect themselves with the spoils they had wrenched from a groaning people; nor was their immu nity even then universal. Verres sunk beneath the eloquence of Cicero; and Pompey and Mar celluB were sustained by public opinion for their integrity and pecuniary incorruptibility, in an age tbe most corrupt that Rome ever ex perienced. Still, the culture of cotton will not be more affected or retarded by war than other branches of industry. All are in a greater or less degree seriously injured by it, unless under some pe culiar circumstances. The arts of peace are the true arts of industry?the elements in whioh they assume their greatest animation and prom ise their most extensive diffusion and improve ment If the qualities of our cotton are such as to cause for it such a pre-eminent demand, what are the circumstances that are calculated to diminish its consumption ? Railroads are mul tiplying to an extent unprecedented in our own country. England is growing in population, with the exception of Ireland, which creates but small consumption of cotton fabrics. Her wealth also is augmenting rapidly. And there is nothing that cotton has to fear, if we can remove all causes of disturbance and discon tent, north and south, by a cordial union on those compromises of the Constitution in which our fathers laid the foundation of our national greatness, and by a strict adherence to which we may effectually and gloriously secure it. We have seen the want of sanity in the idea that flax can supersede cotton. The intellec tual complexion of some other agitators, north as well as south, seems to be of a similar oast to that of those who have started and pursued this idea so eagerly. Let us take for example the Rev. Theodore Parker, who is great at the Melodeon?great, as has been well said, among little men. It is only in such circumstances that he could be reckoned great; whether we look at his agitations against the compromise, i A or U,nor of his opinions on most important ' subjects before the question arose relative to 1 this measure, we shall perceive the marks of an unsound judgment. About a year ago he mounted the philosophical rostrum, and gin io views iclutiy? to the origin of ntn. Four or five years aiuoe, a writer of considerable talent published a work called "Vestige# of Creation." The Rev. Theodore Parker found in this work something so singular, so calcula ted to excite a stare, so well adapted to hare him pronounced by shallow minds a deep philo sopher, would he but advocate these opinions, that the temptation to his vanity to adopt them was irresistible. The author of " The Vestiges" taught that animal existence (of such animals at least as live on land) began at the lowest i scale, and gradually, by one change and trans ] formation after another, ascended to the high est ; bo that man was, actually, at last evolved from some monkey or ape of the highest class man being thus himself an improved ape, or perfected ourang-outang. Were there men of no sounder intellect than Mr. Theodore Parker, we think the evidence of his theory would be incomparably stronger than any derived from arguments which he has used. These opinions, so strongly expressive of an unsound mind,' were proper sequels to some opinions which he gave to the world in a sermon many years ago, uinong which the following choioe specimens may serve to illustrate and adorn him: That the New Testament was a heterogeneous com pound of the oracles of God and the opinions and sayings of men?in which it was not near ho easy to find out which oame from God and which from man, as it was to ascertain that Mr. Theodore Parker was himself, though not inspired, equal to inspiration, and therefore there was no need of the latter, or at least no need of our being certified what its doctrines j and revelations were. Another of his illumi-1 nations was, that there might be yet a Christ to come, superior to the Christ who had come? j both intellectually and morally; acknowledging j at the same time that Christ who had come was i great and good; but plainly implying that he was not as great and good as the Rev. Theodore Parker could easily conceive a human being might be. We would not say, from one learn the charac ter of all; but there is much of a similar insan ity, or folly, in these agitators generally, who are counselling us to act on that wisdom which is from beneath?" which is earthly, sensual and devilish"?and not on that which is "from above; which is first pure, then peaceable, I gentle, easy to be entreated, full 0f mercy and of good fruits, Without partiality and without hypocrisy." Mb. Kennedy in London.?We learn that J. C. G. Kennedy, esq., the Superintendent of the United States Census of 1860, read a paper be fore the British Association for the Advance ment of Science, at its 21st meeting, at Ipswich, on the 13th of July. His subjeft was"?he Influence of Discoveries in Science and works of Art, in developing the condition of a people as indicated by the census of the United States." The Athenaum, a periodical devoted to English and foreign literature, science, and the arts of the date of July 19th, published an extended sketch of Mr. K.'s able paper. It was a very candid, and perhaps the most truthful American speech ever pronounced to English ears. He drew a faithful picture of the simple, yet grand and effective, working of our free institutions, and wonderfully excited the curiosity and admiration of all who heard him. Knowing that he was in the presence of those who were prejudiced against his county on the subject of slavery, Mr. K. embraced the occa- j sion to show the errors under which they la bored, and that they were imbued with a spirit of false philanthropy. He exhibited the num bers of the different races, and reviewed the proportions of the sexes in each, and the rela tive increase, and contended from the facts de veloped that the colored population would rap idly become extinct if the immediate emancipa tion of the slaves were to occur. He told these people, what they had never properly un derstood, that slavery was a matter of State jurisdiction, over which the General Govern ment had no control. He dwelt on the subject of education also and stated the gratifying facts that there were m our schools two and a hatf million* of pupils and that there was a school fund of thirty mil lions of dollars ! , j Temperance Excursion.?The steamer Sa loni departed from this city yesterday morning, at half-past nine o'clock, with about two hun dred passengers of both sexes and of all ages. She went down the river some twenty miles where, at about three o'clock, a squall sprung up and occasioned some danger and a good deal of fright. The awnings were torn to pieces, and general consternation prevailed. Three young ladies helped the matter by fainting away, and we regret to state that one of them who had been in feeble health, did not rally throughout the evening, but continued to en dure recurring spasms. The Salem arrived here safely at half-past six o'clock, and but for the incidents we have related the excursion might be pronounoed one of unalloyed pleasure. Distresrinq Acoidsnt.?Benjamin Frank lin, aged fifteen years, the eldest son of Mr J Ashby, L street, Northern Liberties, met with a most painful injury on Wednesday. Whilst playing with several companions in the Northern Liberties Market-house, he climbed above the meat-hooks, when he lost his hold, and, as he | fell, one of the hooks passed through his foot. n this condition he remained suspended until one of his playmates obtained the aid of a gen tleman who happened to be near, and by whose aid he was taken down. Doctors Mclntyre and Bogan came promptly to his relief, and ren dered their kind offices to the sufferer. The latter gentleman has charge of the case, and the patient so far seems to be doing well. Auction Sales.?Dyer & M^Guire will to- j morrow morning sell the household Aumiture of a gentleman, for the particulars of which see their advert.sement. They will sell on Monday at their room9'the "Union Z*M C"T?* STAT?MA^This is a beau weokJ* J?urnftI' of the larger class, just commenced in this city, by Rev. R. R. Qarlft and Daniel R. Goodloe, and " dedicated to Afri can colonization and civiliiation, to literature "id general intelligence." M?J Fillmore, wife of the Prudent, and her ?on, M P Fillmore, and Mis# Fillmore, are at B*Uevue House, Newport. f Fourth District Schools.?The oeremony I of the distribution of premiums to the success ful aspirants of the Island school* took place yesterday afternoon In the spacious lecture room of tho Smithsonian Institution. The seats of the room ware nearly filled with the children of the schools of both sexes, and a number of attentive and obviously gratified visiters. Mr. Mayor Lenox opened the business by in troducing to the assembly the Rev. Mr. Caro thers, who thereupon delivered an address to the pupils, in which they were apprized of the expectations of their country from them in a sedulous cultivation of their intellectual and moral powers. He took a comprehensive sur vey of what the country had been, is, and is likely to be; expatiated ou the value of the Union, and denounced all who, in deed, word, or thought, contemplate its overthrow. He also dwelt on the exertions made by the people of Washington to come up to their duty in the great matter of extending universal education. Beverly Randolph, esq., of the Board of Trustees, then explained the principles which the Trustees had determined to act upon in the distribution of the honors and rewards they had met to confer. The first honor was for the greatest proficiency in intellectual acquisition; the second, if indeed secondary, for moral su periority ; the third, for punctuality in attend ance, a feature indispensable to scholastio suc cess. Under the general head of intellectual proficiency, the premiums would be distributed in reference, first, to excellence in roading, then in the order of succession to orthography, pen manship, arithmetic, grammar, history, and ^ Mh^Lenox then distributed the silver medals, as follows: The medal for the male department or tne Fourth District School, under charge of Mr. Thompson, was adjudged to Master Robert L. ^The medal to the first pupil in the female department, under Mrs. Hinton, "was adjudged to Miss Adelaide Harris. Mrs. Hinton also awarded a silver medal to Miss Adeline Kinsey. . The medal to the first pupil in Male Primary, under Rev. William T. Eva, was adjudged to Robert Cross. The medal to the first pupil in the Second Primary, under Miss Anderson, was adjudged to James West. The medal to the first pupil in the Third Primary, under Miss Middleton, was adjudged to Emma Preuss. The medal to the first pupil in the iourth Primary, under Miss Margaret Milburn, was adjudged to William Tucker. Besides the above, about one hundred of the children were presented with a handsomely em bellished diploma. We observed present Messrs. Abbott, Hali day, Pearson, Adams, of the Board of Trustees, with the Secretary, the Rev. Charles A. Davis. Thomas Ritchie, esq., late editor of the Union, honored the company with his presence. Dur ing the proceedings the pupils of Mrs. Hinton's female department sung an appropriate vaca tion song in good style. Succeeding the distribution of the premiums, interchanges of tokens of regard were made by teachers and friends of pupils to pupils, and by pupils to their teachers, all exhibiting com mendable feeling and deep mutual interest. The Mayor made some excellent remarks, in the course of which he stated that two friends of the schools had authorized him to say that next year they would give a silver cup to each of the four Distriot Schools, to be the property of the pupil in each that shall by actual exami nation and strict scrutiny, intellectually and morally, prove himself best entitled to it. The i Mayor then called out Mr. Ritchie, who made a very acceptable address. Mr. Randolph closed the whole by some en thusiastic rt/narks, urging the Island youth to such exertion as should prove them next year to be the " Banner Schools" of the city.?Intel. In addition to the above interesting enumera tion of the marks of honor distributed yester I day evening, we learn that two beautiful medals were presented by Mr. P. M. Pearson (a trus tee of the Island schools) to Henry W. \ ates, of the male department, and Miss Mary Ann Lee, of the female department. These medals were offered by Mr. P. at the beginning of the pre sent year, to " the most meritorious pupil," in cluding punctuality, deportment, &c. In pre senting the medals, Mr. P. addressed the pupils in very apposite terms. Also in the course of the evening, a handsome gold pen with pencil was presented by Master James A. Wise, on the part of the first and second classes, to their teacher, Mr. J. E. Thompson, as a token of esteem and appreciation of his past labors. Young Wise delivered in fine style the accom panying address, which was appropriately re sponded to by the teacher, who stated that he should esteem highly this parting gift of his young friends. . The Criminal Court has done nothing to-. day. The jury in the Day case are yet in duress. J The Intelligencer says that a material error occurred in its report of Wednesday morning. The error consisted in stating that the court replied in the affirmative to a message from the I jury asking whother they could change their recommendation to Executive clemency, instead of a commutation of punishment. The court declined any answer at all. The present term will probably conclude on Monday, when the jury will be discharged without agreeing on a verdict. The Northern Liberties Market looked fine this morning. Every thing was abundant and at fair prices. Economy should be practised by all, rich and poor. Never pay a fip or a dime a week for a paper if you can borrow it from your neighbor. He can read it after you have, if it is not torn or lost. To be sure, we often lose a subscriber who does not like to pay for a paper for the use of his neighbors; but that is nothing?editors get rich too fast any how. No. 17 of Hardy'? NoUt on New Mexico will be found on our first page, and will well repay the time given to its perusal. Jenny Lind has gone to Brooklyn, where, it is said, she will remain, to get rid of the thou sand annoyances by which she is constantly be set. ?Penntylvan inn. Happy woman! Only a thousand, and they such as can be got rid of by going to Brooklyn! Thrice happy Brooklyn 1 Cretinism has been discovered in Somerset shire. In the land-locked village of Chisele brough, with four hundred inhabitants, there are four-and-twenty of these dwarfed, swollen, idiotic victims of mental and bodily disease. Cretin, according to Webster, is a name given to certain deformed and helpless idiots in the valleys of the Alps. Laror Tomators.?The editor of the West minster Democrat acknowledges the present of a tomato, whioh weighed one pound Ave and a half ounces Mbdioai Dbpaetxbxt of thb Gbobgbtowh Collbqb.?We have received the annual circu lar of this newly organized Medical school. Its first series of lectures has proved very satis factory, and its position before the public is exceedingly favorable. The second oourse will commence on the first Monday In November next, and continue until the latter part of March, the circular says: "The Faculty take great pleasure in being able to state that the success which has already attended their endeavors has been highly gra tifying, and such as to warrant their most san guine anticipations of the permanent prosperity of the institution. " The attractions offered to the Btudent by the situation of the college at the Beat of gov ernment are obvious and important. Besides, advantages, unconnected with the prosecution of medical studies, to be derived from a winter residence in Washington, there are numerous opportunities offered for the cultivation of dif ferent branches of natural science. In the large and beautiful museums of the United States Exploring Expedition and National In stitute are to be found extensive and well arranged cabinets of minerals, of botanical and geological specimens, and large collections illus trating the various branches of natural history; while the botanical gardens are filled with ex otio plants, among which are many of those oc cupying a place in the materia modica. Lec tures are also delivered throughout the winter at the Smithsonian Institution, on literary and scientific subjects, by persons who are the most eminent for learning in the country. In the Library of Congress is a vast collection of works in literature and science, including many valuable in medicine. 44 To all of the above-mentioned places ao cess can be had at all times, gratuitously." 44 Tub Pbesidbnt's Lady."?The Providence Journal takes exceptions to this phrase, and says: 1 Mr. Fillmore is a lawfully married man, of j excellent character and unimpeachable morals, and why the papers persist in calling Mrs. Fill more the 4 President's lady,' instead of giving her the honorable name of the 4 President's wife,' we cannot imagine. The same incivility was practised towards Mrs. Polk, and we called | attention to it at the time." Thb Execution to-day.?We quote the fol lowing singular and melancholy statement from the Baltimore American of this morning. We believe that justice will never be accomplished, nor the community rendered secure from out rage, until the present sanguinary laws are repealed, and greater certainty of punishment thus secured. The voice of humanity is every where crying out against the death penalty. The negro Amos Green.?This unfortunate man, who is to be hung to-day at Ellicott's Mills, for the commission of a rape upon the person of Mrs. Pepee, was removed last night from our jail, where he has been kept since his reprieve by the Governor, to the Mills. Green has lately reiterated to the Rev. Mr. Carter, of Howard District, the Rev. Mr. Slicer, of this city, and to a number of other persons, his statement in regard to his connexion with Mrs. Pepee. His statement in no degree differs from what he has all along asserted, except in its being made under circumstances of more so lemnity, and in view of the inevitable fate which awaits him. Green most solemnly denies the commission of anything like the crime of rape, whilst ad-1 mitting his intimacy and connexion with Mrs. Pepee. His revelations in regard to this wo man, if they could be supported by any proof, -would Bhow her to be a most abandoned and influnous character. The general feeling here, among the many who have conversed with Green and heard his statements, is decidedly in his favor. During his imprisonment here he has received the pious attentions of both the rever end gentlemen named above, and it is believed is prepared to meet his fate in a proper frame of mind. His confession, or statement, has been put in writing, but it has been judged best, by those to whom he has committed the control of his affairs, to withhold it from publication. Judges in Balitmobb.?The Democratic Ju dicial Nominating Convention of Baltimore met last night. John C. Legrand was unanimously nominated for Judge of the Court of Appeals; Wm. L. Marshall, Judge of the Court of Com mon Pleas ; Wm. Frick, Judge of the Superior Court; Henry Stump, Judge of the Criminal Court. Lambert S. Norwood was nominated for Clerk of the .Court of Common Pleas ; Ed ward Dowling, Clerk of the Superior Court; Thomas H. Moore, Clerk of the Criminal Court. The Convention then at midnight adjourned until 8 o'clock to-night. Envious.?The Baltimore Argut speaks of Charles W. Cutter, the Navy Agent at Ports mouth, New Hampshire, who is said to have "absquatulated with a considerable sum of Uncle Sam's money," as a 44 Whig Swartwout | er," just as if his party is entitled to all such gentlemen. He will see before long that no such thing can be allowed. 44 Down with mo nopoly" is the cry! Col. G. W. Hughes.?The Baltimore Argus, in noticing the resignation of this gentleman, says: 44 Col. Hughes is a brave and aocom plished officer, and will adorn the walks of pri vate life With as much grace as he has proven himself to be an ornament of our national army."
