iTiirt'int to us that we should be reduced to embar-
us to persevere in a policy wnicii nas proaucea so
Iwonderful a result ; its beneficent operation makes
it essential to us to deal carelully with it now we
have got it. Some years ago an island arose 'in the
pl.'.literranean, aim we were all discussing it ana
marrelling about it, ana keeping up a urisK nre oi

trusted island suddenly went down again, and
Uips sent out to survey it sailed over the site it had
m-cupied. e must not ao anyinmg 10 uisgusi inis
hit "e lump of profitable work which has suddenly
irisen anions us. We are inclined to look at it
with a respectful and superstitious tenderness, rath
er as a "imbler does upon a run of luck at cards,
ioping it may last forever.
Lord Bronjrhain and the veterans of the old Anti-
Shvery Society do not, we fear, share our delight at
this ntat increase in the employment ot our home
wnlation. 1 heir minds are still seared by those
Ciorrible stories which were burnt in upon them in
ftkir vouth, when England was not only a slave-
kin ninr. but even a siave-traaing state, i neir re-
iiorse is so great that the ghost of a black man is
tlnays before them. They are benevolent and ex
elleiit people ; but if a black man happened to have
roken his shin and a white man were ;n danger of
Irowninz, we much fear that a real Anti-Slavery
fcealot would bind up the black man's leg before he
JwjM draw the white man out of the water. It is
hot an inconsistency, therefore, that while we see
nlv cause of congratulation in this wondenul m
rease of trade Lord Brougham sees in it the exag
geration of an evil he never ceases to deplore. We,
ml such as we, who are content to look upon so
ietv as Providence allows it to exist to mend it
Ivhen we can, but not to distress ourselves immod
Iratelv for evils which are not of our creation, we
oniv tne iree ana intelligent cngusn lamuies
who thrive upon the wages which these cotton bales
reduce. Lorn JJrougnam sees oniy tne uiacs. laoor-
Itrs who, on the other side of the Atlantic, pick the
otton pods in' slavery. Lord Brougham deplores
fiat in tins tremendous importation of a thousand
millions of pounds of cotton the lion's share of the
r rutit goes to the United States, and has been pro
duced lv slave labor. Instead of twenty-three mil-
ions the United States now send us eight hundred
kri'l thirty millions, and this is call cultivated by
ives. It is very sad that this should be so, but
Kc do not see our way to a remedy. There seems
i be rather a chance of its becoming worse. If
ranee, who is alreadv moving onwards in a rest-
ss. purblind stale, should upon her eyes wide.
houM give herself fair play by accepting our coals,
Iron, and machinery, and, under the stimulus of a
rholesome competition, should take to manufactur-
upon a large scale, then these three millions will
ot be enough. Franco will be competing with us
n the foreign cotton markets, stimulating still fur
her the produce of Georgia and South-Carolina.
he jump which the consumption of cotton in Eng-
d has just made is but a single leap, which may
repeated lddennitely. Ihere are a thousand
"Hons of mankind upon the elobe. all of whom
w be most comfortably clad in cotton. Every year
jt tribes and new nations are added to the category
f cotton-wearers. There is every reason to believe
iat the supply of this universal necessity will for
iany years vet to come fail to keep pace with the
eraand, anil, in the interest of that large class of
Jr countrymen to whom cotton is-bread, we must
ontmue to hope that the United States will be able
supply us in years to come with twice as much
we bought of them in years past
"'Let us raise up another market," says the Anti
avcry people. So sav we all. We know very well
W the possibility of growing cotton is not confin-
' w tue ew W orld. The plains of Bengal grew
ut.n oeiore Columbus was born, and we. with our
echanical advantages, can actually afford to take
r liengal cotton from the growers and send it
to them in yarns and meces cheaoer than they
" make it up. So, also, thousands of square miles
i ('Kino ii . t .

lr we may perhaps repeat the same process there,

fflHIS HIGHLY CONCENTRATED COMPOUND OF
JL the grea' agents in thegrowin ot plants, "ammonia
and the " Phosphates," isofiered to the Farmers and Plant
ers of tbe United States, as being better adapted to tbe reno
vation of the worn-out lands of the Atlantic Mates, than
any concentrated Manure ever offered to the pnblic In
stead of stimulating the soil to extraordinary effort, and
consequent further exhaustion, it supplies in larger qnan
tities than anv other Manure, the real want of the soil, viz
tbe PnosPHATEs. and thus does a permanent good. 1 1 con
tains 20 per cent, more Bone Phosphate than ground bones
themselves, and is rendered soluble by tbeactit n ot Acids.
All that is asked for it is a fair trial, side by side,
with anything now in the market. -
Price', f45 per ton. Put up in casks and sent to all parts
of tbe country, on receipt of the money, or approved city
