Thursday, November 21, 1861. (a-llearilnK 1i.frnfTryp..' To CoaixuroxDsarnt. No attention will be paid t ) anonymous communications. COTTOl. We print on the outride several recent notices In respect to the rapid expansion of tbe cotton cultivation In India. No error Is more egregious, or Indeed so en tirely destitute of even plausibility, as tbe sup position that England will take tbe burdens and risks of war, for the aako of gutting cotton from America. As a matter of choice, (he would prefer to-day that America ehould never produce another bale of ootton, and tbe longer I he cotton crop of America Is sealed up, tbe better she likes It. We speak, of course, of the controlling sentiment of tbe English slates men, merchants, m inufacturers and people. What they have desired for yi-ars, Is to have n i Independent supply ol cotton from their own colonies, which has been thus far pre vented by tbe competition of American plant ers, and they will cheerfully sjbmlt to tbe Inconvenience of temporary high prices, while tbe chlel source of supply Is being shifted from one part of the world to another. This transi tion period Involves losses to Individuals nrd e lawwe, and It Is the clamor of thesa Indivld- iii Is nnd classes In respeot to tbe blookadn of American cotton, which deceives those who judge superficially, as to what tbe real wishes ol the English nation are. A recent number ol tbe London Timti observes : " Our readers can be nt no loss to remembor the main illfiicultj- which has hitherto prevent' ed any extensive cultivation of onttou else where than in Amerloa. Tbe Americans had .tot possession of tbe market, and retained tlieir monopoly by the punctuality nnd excel lence of tlieir supnlios. No cotton conld heat American ootton when Amerloan cotton was to he had. Oilier description could only contend fur the mucin or surplus of the custom which tbe favorite article might leave. Even now If the crop of the Southern States could be lib orated, tt would, as far ua tl went, drive all other cotton nut of the market. Consequently, there was no certainty of demand or price I r Indian or other foreign cotton while this Blate of things lasted: and. If there had tieen no changes In America, things might have lasted so a long time. Now, however, there is a sud den opening. American cotton Is aotuallyout of the Held for the moment, and there is no saying how long It may continue so. Compe titton 1s free to all, and there will be room during this unexpected opportunity for the Im provement of tbe a'tlcle up to tbe requisite standard. When America appears In tbe mar ket again, India ought to be bar match; and, if this can be aocumplished, England will be relieved from any risk of another cotton drought, while India will be enriched by a trUde of many millions a year." Tbe Times sometimes writes In a different strain, but it Is in tbe views extracted above, tint it expresses Ibe opinions entertained in England for thirty years past, and which that proverbially tenacious people are not at all likely to give up In a day, and merely because the s'oppage of the American supply of cotton ciurrs tbe prlco of the article to rise for a tingle vear, or for two years. Tbe English are as tturdy and as dogged In thelf commir eUI policy, aa they are In their wars. They are not blown about by every wind of doc trine. To get cotton from India has been tbelr hobby for a generation, and the last thing which an Englishman gives up, Is his hobby. While tbe Southern planters have been delud ing themselves with the Idea, that tbelr cotton was essential to England, the truth really l that the English are rejoicing at the blockade of American cotlon, and Instead of desiring to put an end to it, only wish that it may be per petual. The actual difficulty we have to encounter, is not that of maintaining our blockade, but ol meeting the competition In tbebnsinees of cotton ralsiDg. which our civil war has stim ulated in all quarters of the globe. And the sequel will show that we cannot meet this competition without Introducing into our eot Ion cultivation, tee cheapness and efficiency of tree labor. It is In that way, and In that way only, that we cin recover our ancient su premac; In that brsneb of national Indnttry. Hook Notice. We have received from Jo seph Sbillington, corner Four-and-a-half street and Peonylvanla avenue, a copy of " The Lamplighter's Story," by Charles Dickens, Esq. We extract the following notice of the work from the Philadelphia Prett: " A few months ago, five thousand dollars were paid Dickens for the exclusive privilege to republish "Ore it Expectations," and not long before the same sum ws given to blm for h short story, called " Hunted Down," (hlsouly orislnaf contribution to any American periodi cal,) which appeared In the New York Ledger Then T. B. Peterson A Brothers, of this city, who have republished Dlskens In a variety ol fdltions, have now rendered these ries complete by collecting a number of tbelr author's sto ries, commencing with that quaint anecdote, ' The Lamplighter' Story," adding in " Hunt ed Down, ' (which cost five thousand collars,) as well as others, and concluding with " The Haunted House," a ourlous oolleotlon of ghost stories never before putlnto a volume. Three editions of this work are published today: one in Hmo. or duodecimo shape, the ether two In ovo., or octavo form. Tbe book, which is well printed and illustrated, Is capital read Ing. No writer tells a short story half so well as Dickens. There will be aa great demand fur ' The Lamplighter's Story," aa there has been for"OreatExpeotatloDS," of which Peterson has old over 20,000 copies. " Hunted Down " alone ts worth the price of the whole book. Tn illustrated llmo. edition of Dickens, rendered romplete by tbe present edition, now consists of thirty one volumes. Each of these contains as muoh reading matter as thres volumes uh publisned In England, and at one sixth of the L....i,.h nHi.ii. a viLst auantltv for one man to have written In twenty-six years, lie will not be fifty years old until next February."

THE REVIEW YESTERDAY. 10,001) Troops Hn.e In Hevlew. linmente Concourse of People Prtirnt. 6CEtfBs7iNCIDBST8, Ac, Ac, Ac. TE3TKRDAT Was a day that will long bs remembered by thousands of people, as one or tbe mo-t event Oil of their Uvea Never before, In this oountry, has there been assembled together each an 1m mense body of armed men, as were reviewed yesterday, on the " sacred soil " of Virginia. AT AM aURLT HOUR In the morning, every avenue leading to tbe several bridges, crossing the Potomac, was crowded with vehicles of every description containing persons on their way to the review, and thousands of people on foot, to whom a Jaunt of seven or eight miles and back, seemed, from their eagerness and hurry, an every da) occurrence, pressed on with light step and cheerful countenances In the direction of Mun son's Hill. The scene at tbe LOXO BHIDOI was exciting and amusing In the extreme From eight until eleven o'olock the Immense cavalcade of horse and carriages, ladles and gentlemen on horseback, and persons on foot, continued to pour, In one continuous stream, from tbe Washington to the Virginia side of the I'otomao, over this principal avenue of ennnee lion between the two shores, Largs numbers of persons who were on foot were unable to cross the Long Bridge at all, owing to Its crowded condition ; and the danger to be In enrred In Its passage deterred many with weak nerves from even attempting Ik Numbers were thus unwillingly compelled to turn back without even I In satisfaction of setting foot upon the soil of the Old Dominion to many, an object, perhaps, of more cariosity and coi -sequence than wltnevsing the review Itself, Few perrons were allowed to cross the Long Bridge at the tame time, lest some accident might befal them or Iho bridge, and several hundred persons, after waiting for two or three hours for an opportunity to cross, reluctintly turned away, and returned to town; other made their way to the Georgetown ferry, or to the Chiin Ilridg.', but in both places they found an anxious crowd, and the same vsxatlous May. MSl'l. tl TRICKS AHKBII Klrt IIOKHRH AND CiRRIAURH. The diy furnished a rich harvest for livery stable keepers and hackmen; and almost fabu lous rates were asked, and willingly paid for horse-flesh. Although omnibuses were run be tween Washington and the review ground, conveyances, from hack down to furniture cars, were in greater demand than ever before, and Washington was completely drained of hacks, and of almost every machine running on wheels. nt roRTiriCAT!o.s. On tbe road leading to the review were ob jects of great Interest and curiosity to the passing crowd, and the sentinels wt re much annoyed by their questions, although they usually asaumed the same shape ; for Instaoco, "How many guns in this fort!" "How far will they shoot !"' " Are they rifle or smooth bore V One of the sentinels at Fort Runyon, who was something of a wag, satisfied and amused the crowd by his laconic replies. When his audience b'came large, he answered them all at ones, In this manner: "Fifty guns- Bill & Columblads carry three miles ;" and then, coming to a rlht about, marched to the other end of h's beat, where hi gave the same replies. ARRIVAL OV (1KV. M'cLEIJaS AVD UTIVr. Gen. McClellan and stall, accompanied by the President and Secretaries Cameron a.d Seward on horseback, did not reach the ground until half-past twelve o'clock, followed by sev eral regiments of cavalry, together with mount ed brass band. Tbe Immense throng cheered as he passed along. The location of the revl'w ground was between Munson's Hill and Bally's Cross Uoad, in the large open fields. Tbe di visions reviewed were those of Gens. MeCall, McDowell, Helntzleman, Pile John Porter, Franklin, lileoker and Smith, comprising nine ty regiments of infantry, twenty batteries o artillery, numbering over one hundred plecs, and nine regiments of cavalry, forming an ag gregate of about 70,000 troops. IUI.L'k GROSS ROADS. This locality, which bas played such a con splcuons part in the Virginia tragedy, seemid to possess much Interest to the vast throng, and hundreds lingered about the neighborhood, of which they hid heard so much, and before they left It procured some souvenir from ths trjts or soil. HCNSON'S HILL REBEL rORTIflCATIONS From the summit of this hill, there Is a mag nificent panoramic view of the surrounding country Washington City looms up grandly, on one side, while tbe view In another direction, were It not for a sollttry hill, would extend to the far-famed Manassas. Upon this h'U, too, the rebels erected IhMr e-irth works, and from whtob floated their emblem of rebellion. This, therefore, was a locality of great interest, and It was literally covred with p-ople, busily en gaged In Inspecting ths rebel fortifications. LSWI.NSVILLB, VA. War, in its march of desolation, bas laid Its band so heavily upon Lewlnsvllle, that In Its prese.it ruined atpeol. It foroibly brought to my mind tbe picture ol Goldsmith's " Deserted Village." Tho Uvern and store, being owned by rebels, are vacated and closed. The old tavern sign is down, snd leans against tbe front of the store, in sorry companionship. I'rlvat-j res deuces are also vacated, as are the Presby trrlancburcband tbe adjoining parsonage. Tbe preacher Is supposed to be preaching secession sermon) to a congregation In affinity therewith. Two Union trustees are all ths representatives of the church now In that vicinity. Another Union trustee is a prisoner In Richmond.

Wa subjoin the roost interesting Items of news: THE EXPEDITION TO MEXICO. Paris papers give particulars of tbe late Con vention. Tho Patrlt says the three Powers are to have the right to send thn pamo naval strength, while the strength of the forces to be landed Is to be in proportion to the number of subjects which belong to each Power In Mcx Ico. Spain, therefore, claims precedence. The Cabinet at Washington will be Invited to join, and It will l left optional with them to send such a number of ships and troops as is aeemea aavisaoie. The Dibatt says the Powers are, at tbe com m'notment, to endeavor to Impose a suspen slon or arms on the belligerent parties In Mex Ico. Thev undertake, not to occunv perma nently any part of her territory, and to obtain no exclusive advantage from Mexico. They engage to leave Mexico entirely free to cboos Its own torm or government, cngiana gave up the conditions which she wished Inserted in the treaty, vii , that tbe three Powers should pledge themselves not to accept me mrono ni uexluo for any prince of their reigning (ami lies. If the monarchical form prevails, tho Powers pledge themselves not to use Interven tlon to the profit of any prince In particular. The Patri says tbe contingent of France will number 3,000. GREAT BRITAIN. The Dally Aeus commences a leader by slat Ing that a considerable portion of Ireland if again tbratened with famine, and that In the North the failure of potatoes Is more general and complete than In any year since 1816. The Timet bas an editorial on tbe ill feeling of the North toward England, and argues upon Its groundlessness. It says it shall neverthe less continue to express its conviction, that secession has destroyed the Fideral Union, and that to whichever side victory inclines, Its re construction on tho old basis Is Impossible. Tbe Government had ordered a large ship meat of ball cartridges to Canada, but the order for tbe shipment of Armstrong guns had be n countermanded. AUSTRIA AND HUNGARY. Ths Emperor of Austria had addressed an autograph lett. rto tbe Chancellor of Hungary saying that the dlsloyilly In the Hungarian municipal II I s menaced tin public order in such a dangerous manner, mat the publloduty requires tbe raising of strong barriers against Hungarian Diet In a constitutional manner an- fiears Impracticable, until order In re-estab-Ished, till tbe existiug auth titles in the die tricts and communes are abolished, and the Chancellor Is ordered to elect persons to replace them, and to take care that the administration of the pubtio affairs sutlers no interruption All persons charged wittt crimes against the publlo safety shall be tried by military tribtt nals. In conclusion, tbe Emperor expresses the earnest wish for lb-re establishment of publio order, and the future maintenance 1 1 the concessions he has granted Uuogary. Monsieur Tolours has been appointed Minis Ister of Belgium to tbe Court of Turin, which is considered as a recognition of tbe Kingdom ot Italy, General Patterson. In reference to Gen eral Patterson's recent defence of himself, (pub lished elsewhere lu this paper,) the New York World of Wednesday observes: " Whatever estimate may be put by military men upon General Patterson's defence of his campaign on tbe upper Potnmao, to which hss bltherto been attributed no small responsibility for our defeat at Manassas, all will commend his allenoe hitherto. He bas waited patiently and patriotically, bearing a load of blame and Indignation without remonstrance, until its transfer to other shoulders could work no 111 to the general cause. When thus left free by the obange In the chief command of our armlrs, self defence was his right. Similar reasons to those wbloh kept Oeneral Patterson silent so long enjoin silence upon the Journalist now justice being done taOeceral Patterson by giv ing him the bearing whiob be claims. Nothing oan be gained by looking anxiously to see where the responsibility, removed from his shoulders, m last iu. aj ok. owe sou oenumoeu yacuwics whoe vouUiful and whose mardu moor teere nil faithfullu spent in the service 0 the eounb-u. or ii iruiiorous i.nu uruiupecieu suuoraxnates ticar we person of an oia man neaevuea nil teorfc, ie( tl past. History will have nothing to erase In her finished record of Ms service and bis hon ors; and Patterson, ton, may he sure of her applause for waiting till the good cause could not suffer harm ere rrovlng that America bas nau nouroucny." We have Italicized the words having refer ence to General Scott, and propose to make two observations upon tbem. We concur fully in the suggestion, that Gen eral Scott's short comings in this war should rot detract from the fame fairly belonging to him, or diminish the measure of gratitude due to him from a country which he served so long and so faithfully. Nothing Is so easy as to per suade an old man that bis capacity and efficien cy are as great ss they ever were. Thoroughly impressed from the first, that Gen. Scott was in competent to deal militarily with this rebellion, and Incessant as we were In protesting against his actual management, we ceased to criticise from the diy when he was practically superceded In the command by the disaster at Bull Run, and when the moment of h's formal retirement came, we joined in doing honor to his Illustri ous career. The New York H'oWd should either have named the " su'peoted and traitorous subordi nates " of General Scott, or should not have Indulged In that sort of Insinuation at all. Wr must believe it to be without foundation, until some specifications and proofs of it have been produced. Senator Mason. The Boston Journal, In no ticing the arrival of Messrs. Slldell and Mason at Fort Warren, says: It will be remembered that when ih TTntnn Committee from Boston vlslttd Washington last January, Mr. Mason. In reply to the wish ex pressed that b might again visit our city, said: " 1 W1 nof ijo to DotUm again except at an ambatsador." That insolent speech was prophetic In a sense noi amicipatea oy me naugnty Virginian. Tub Stham Fire Esuine which arrived 1 ist week, gives entire satUfictlon.

Johnston, previous to the battle of Manassas Junction. lie returned thanks for the compliment paid him, and for the manner In which It had been received. He said that he was not In tho habit of giving rea sons for anything ha did or did not do, but In thn nrrsencn nf men of so much Intelligence as tho members of tho First City Troop, n part of nis nommana in me anon campaign in me val ley of Virginia, ho considered It due to them as woll as to himself to give a short statement nt rAP.ta. During thelattar part of July, alt August, and Kart of Beptembar, there was noslander against im so gross tbat It could not be asserted and reiterated witn impunity ana swaitowea wnn avidity. The gentlemen of the Troop knew how false these slanders were. He had submitted to them In quiet, although be had tho docu ments lu his possession to prove that he did all that he was ordered to do, and more than any one bad a right to expect under the circum stances in wnion ne anu nis enmmana were placed, and he deflod any roan, high or low, to ml nis nnger ou uruor uhhudjuu. Thn ernnllnmon of the troon were witnesses of what was done, and he asserted what they knew to be true, mat me column was wen con ducted. There was not a false step made, nor a blunder cotnmitiea. ine SKirmisners were always In front, and the flanks woll protected. They were caught In no trap, and fell Into no ambuscade. They repoatedly offered the ene my battle , and when they accepted It they bei t them. There was no defeat and no retreat with his column. ' It might be asked, " Why havo you not made this statement sooner t" Beonuso the publica tion of the documents sooner would havo been most detrimental to the publio Interests. He preferred bearing the odium so liberally be stowed on him, rather than clear himself at tho iintni. of tho cause In which wo were all en gaged. The time had arrived when the matter could, without Inlurv to the servloe. be in quired into; and ho was determined that It should be done, nnd&tbat before long all tho documonts relorred to should be published, and spread oerore Ino American people, unless those whose duty It was to do so should In the mean tlmo do him Justice. He would stato a few facts. On the 3d nf Juno he took command at Chamberaburgh. On the 4th he was Informed by Iho (Jeneral-ln. Chief that he considered tbe addition to his force of a battorv of arllllorr and some regit lar Infantry Indispensable. On the 8th of June a lettot of Instructions was sent blm, in which he was told that there must be no reverse ; a chock or a drawn battle would he a victory to the enemy, filling his heart with joy, his ranks witn men, ana nis magazines witn vo uniary contributions; and, therefore, to tako bis mea sures clroumsnectlv and attemot nothing with nut a cloar prospect of sucoess. This was good instruction and most sensible advice. Oood or bad. he was to obev: end he did. On Fridav. tho 13tb. he was Informed that, on the supposition that ho would cross the river on the noxl Mocdav or Tuesday, Gen. McDowell would be instructed to make a demonstration on Manassas Juno Ion. He whs surprised at the order, but promptly obeyed. On tbe 15tb, lie, reached Uagorstown, and on the 16th two. thirds of his foroes bad crossed tbe Potomao. The promised demonstration by Gen. McDowell, In tbe direotlon of Manassas Junction, was not made; and on the 16lh, just three days after he had been told bewasexuected to cross, he was telegraphed by the Genoral-ln Chief to send him " at once all the regular troops, horse and foot, and tbe Rhode Island regiment and battery," and told tbat ho was strong enough without the regulars, and to keep within limits until ho could satisfy him that ha ought to go beyond them. On the 171b, he was again telegraphed, " We aro pressed here. Bend the troops I have twice called for without delay." This was Im perative, and tbe troops were sent, leaving h m without a single piece of artillery, and, for the time, a single troop of cavalry, it was a gloomy night, but they were all brought over the river again without loss. On the 20th of June, Le was asked, by the General-in-Chief, to propose, without delay, a plan of operations. On the 'At, be submitted to tbe General-in-Chief his plan, which was to abandon the present line of operations, move all supplies to Frederick, occupy Maryland Heights with Major Doubleday's heavy guns, and a brigade of Infantry to support them, and with everything else burse, foot, and artillery to oross the Potomac at Point of Rocks, and unite with Colonel Btone's foroo at Leesburg, from which point be oould operate as clrcum stanoes should demand and the General's orders should reoolre. No renlv was received: but. on tbe 37lh, the General telegraphed him tbat he supposed, tnatne whs, mat uay, crossing tne river In nursuit of the eucmv. On tbat day the enemy was In condition to cruts the river in pursuit. He hadOTorflfteen thousand men, and from twenty to twenty-four guns, uenerai, rauerson naa aoouiten inou sand men and six guns, the latter Immovable for want of harness. Ou tbe 28tb, be Informed the General nf tbe strength of the enemy and of his own foroo ; that be would not, on his own responsibility, attack without artillery, but would do so cnoorlully and promptly If he wouia give aim an expuciioruer io inai eueci. No order waa given. On the 29lb.be received tbe harness for bis single battery of six smooth bore guns, and, on tbe 301b, gave tbe order to oross. un me a oi juiy ne orossea, met tue enemv. and whipped them On the Oth of July a council was held, at whloh all the commanders of divisions und brigades, and chiefs of staff were present. Col. S one, the jut lor lice officer, spoke twloe and decidedly against an advance, advocating a direct movement to Bhepardstown and Charlestown. All who spoke opposed an ad vance, and all voted against one. On tbe same day, be Informed the General-ln-Chlof of tho condition of affairs In the valley, and proposed tbat be should go to Chailestoan and occupy Harper's Ferry, and asked to be Informed when be would attack Manassas. On the l'iili he was dlreoted to go where he had proposed, and Informed that Manassas would be attacked on Tuesday the ICth. On the 13th he was tele graphed" It not strong enough to beat tho enemy early next week, mako demonstrations bo as to detain him In tho valley of Winches tor." lie msdo tho demonstrations, nnd on tho 16th, the day Gen. Scott said be would attack MauassaB, he drovo the enomy's pickets into bis entrenchments at Winchester, and on tbe 17tb, marched to Charlestown. On the 13th he telegraphed tbe General In Chief that Johnston was In a position to h.no his strength doubled just as he could roaoli him, and that be would rather lose tbe chance of accomplishing something brilliant than by hacardlng his oolumu, to destroy the fruits if tbe oampalgn by defeat, closing his tolegram thus: " If wrong, let me bo distrusted." But no Instructions came. This was eight days be fore tbe battle of Manassas. On the seventeenth, General Soott telegraph ed: "McDowell's first day's work has driven the enemy beyond Fairfax Court-Uouse. To morrow the Junction will probably be car ried." With this information be was happy. Johnston had been detained the appointed time, and tbe work ef General Patterson's column bad beeu done. On the eighteenth, at half-past one In tbe morning, he telegraphed General Scott tbe con dition i f the enemy's force and his own, refer ring to his letter of tbe sixteenth tor full infor mation, and closed the dispatch by asking, " Shall I attack? " Tbls was plain English, and could not be mlaunderatood, but lie received no reply, ne expeutoa to De altacxeu wuere he wa, and if Hmi.ibs is was not to be attacked i n tbat day, us stated In General Soutt's dispatob of the day previous, be ought to have been ordored down forthwith to loin In tbe buttle. and the attack dela) ed until lie came. He could hiive beon tht re on the day that the battle was fought, und his assistance might have produced adltrerent result. On the twentieth, he heard that Johnston bud marched with Dj.oou Confederate truups.und a large artillery force, lu a southeasterly direc tum. He Immediately telegraphed the infoi. tuatloit to Geneial Scutt, and knew that he ro tolled It the same day. In nccordance with Instructions ho uame to Harper's Fen yon the twenty Arid, which place he held until relieved. General I'attorson, duilng the course of his remarks, was repeatedly applauded, and cloeed amidst repeated cheers. 49- FHUOHKSg OK SLAVERY IN THE UNITED STATES j BT OKOROK HVWE8TOH.
