The acreage planted, th qu mtity o rain ;fall, the the exact number of worms that will depredate the plant, the number of bolls that will open, end the number of bol s that will not open all these are taken iuto a calculation which is made with such coufeumate mathemat fcal skill as to make tbe problems of Euclid, in c .mparison to it, unworthy the skill of the m -rest tyro. A loga rithm, or an equation of the hundrtdth degree, are not half mi accurate or useful in the solution of a p-oblem in aualjtical geometry as aie these data in making up th summarium of the citt -j. crop. Of cour-e truth is at the both in of ali these investigation. Ti nth is w hat each statistician aud gues Ber is se king for. Eacli one of them is anxious to ascertain the txact, num ber of bales, in order to know the re lation iu which "supply" and "de mand" wili b and to tachotLer. xhis being done, the price that the staple vrill bring is ta., ly figured up. But nobody ever thinks about "proving the. sum" aa the school boys would say. When the time comes to prove the corr ctness of their statistics or gue.siLg, it is of no woith to do so. The c ops lias then been Bold has passed from the haiida of the producer, into the hands of the specu lator and manufacturer. These latter gentlemen have it piled up on their wharves and in their warehouses. Af ter each one has counted his pile, the simple rule of addition is brought into I requisition; but the renult is held a profound secret among the initiated. Tis crop, is, with the producer, o- e of the things of thedad past, iu which ho has no further interest. But just before he commences to turn his new furrows for his new crop, the high and advancing price of cotton stimulates him to renewed energy and txertion, and his great aim is to make more cot tun than he did last year. Then the work of the new year ommences. Aud then to the front come the army ot statisticians ana gues rs again. The acreage planted, tie quantity of riinfall, the exact number of worms that will depredate the plant, the number of bolls that wili open, and the n amber of bolls that wil not open, are agin figured up, and f jrin the data from which the grand result is to be again scertain -d. The planter never profits by exper ience. He implicitly believes everv thiag these statisticians and guessers from time to time tell him. When the crop year begins, he believes every body will plant less cotton than they did last year except himself. Wueii pick ing time comes, he believes that every- bc fly's crop has beeu fearfully damag ed, by worms, drouth, and over fall of rain except his own; hecca he must use extra exertion, up to the last mo rn nt, to 6ave every pound he can. Alas for him ! when his crop ia ready for market, he finds that he has gotten hold cf the figures of the wrong statis tician or guesser, and that every plant er Las raised an infinitely better crop than himself, the aggr gate production is immense, and consequently the price must rule low. If he had raised plan tation supplies, he would not have l n compelled to sell his cotton at once to buy them, and could have held hi crop in his barns until tlie sxecula- t'jr and manufacturer were willing to pay the highest price for it. When will our people If arn wbd' rn ? But we have t omewl it departed from the origii al uet? ign of this article which wis to ?aU attention to the ex tended influence '.hat th. ccttoTrrop of the South xtrts on the World's in dustries and enterprises. That "cot ton ia king" is no 1-es tide now, thu it was when it wus cuitivateiT 1y a ftiililnnnglon well regulated and reliable labor sys- ' tern. Indeed the scentre did not de part from its hand, even dnrii g the four years of civil war, when the crops of the Sooth were locked up, iu th fields on which they were then cultivated blockaded f fom the markets of the world. The demand for it was bo great that Egypt, India, and whatever soi' would pro duce it, were brought iato earnest requisition for its production. It still constituted the main source of tbj wealth of tietious. And duriog the four years alluded to, thw history of the rise and fad of the priuc-ly foi tunes which wer? mad and unmade at its command iu d liferent tarts of the world, forcibly brin 's to our recol lection the history of the South S,-a Bubble. To India, the Euglish people thought they could eufely turn from America, ar.d thi'tce, cwntideijt'y expect to draw her ind .sp" jMttblo supply of the staple; contented, ai.d evi-u hoping, no doubt, that the civil war iu America would continue on forever, ;r at least until the whoe of Iudia should be converted into an immense cottou nld, (-uthoieut to supply all their wants. From a volume jut publish ed by a Frenchman, M. Rousseht, it btteois that mucii information may be concerning tue xnuian cum- title of "India aud Its Native Princes" and we gather what information v. e possess of its cont nt, from a review of the work contained iu the Novem ber number of "iScribner's Monthly" which has jutt been laid on our table. The reviewer makes the following ex tract from M. lioiisselet which our readers will perceive gives a lively p cture of the series of events, iulodia during thes? four years, and culmina ted iu the year 1804 6,5. "America, rent as liitter by the hor rors of civil war, had d pr ved Europe of one of the elemcuts m t uece.ssary to it industrial eX!ttLiC', viz., c.jttou; and India, wh'cu hid comprehended how !mportaLit it wm th t she should atteiiif t to step iuto the? place then, lor the time being, vacant, had thauks to her intelligent efforts) become a'dc to supply in a great iu gri d the void that had been produced m the means of feedini? tue m nufocrurts of the world. Bombay had become the em porium of ail the cotton ot India. Availing h- rself of the immense ad Vitntages of her position, she had con trived to attract herself the whole of this branch uf commerce, aud had become almost the sole arbitiess of it. Incredible fortuues . were lapidly ac cumulated, and I hen, impeded by the longing after .-peculation wiui'j had begun to possess their souls, the In dians disinteried the treasure that had been buried for ceutaries, and money overflowed upon the grouud. Consid ering the reconstruction of the United StateB an impossibility, the Bombay an foresaw for their city a most mag nificent futare. Instead of seeing in that reason merely an exceptional piece of good fortune, they tnought that notlii-ig could Ksf.iijy reverse their prosperity. Projects sprang iito life on all sides : cotton, while re maining as the bitsis of their commerce became merely the pretext for uutimi tea t-peculation. inttilitrent out m- considerate men established gigintic comnauies to develop resources which had already attained the height of their develop nent. A project was organized to enlarge the i.-laud, and reclaim from the s-a the liack B-iy. A company was started ; and when some days after the issue of the shares they attaiued a premium of $15,000 the speculation knew no bounds. Many new banks were founded ; but all this was on paper ouly. It was mere ly a game at whicu everybody was playing. Merchants, effieers, public functionaries, were only too glad to exchange their silver for wretched scraps of paper ; some humbled themselves so far as to solicit the lead ers of the movement, aiid the leading men were regarded as millionaires and demigods. In ppite of the efforts of some honorable men. who foresaw the ruin m which this folly would certaia y e? d, and who endeavored to stop the peopie on the brink of the abyss, the contxgton spread throughout the whole island. Even the ladie-, seated iu their chariots by the ea side, con versed together eagerly on the fluctua tions of Exchange; servauts risked their wages, and workmen their pay, in this insatiable speculation. But when the news of General Lee'o defeut reach ed Bombay, when the banks were c'o-'ed, vthsn well established com mercial houses collapsed, and all these shares became waste paper, then there was a universal ruin from the greatest to the least, all were struct down. The crash wps so severe that even the Bank of Bombay ws obliged to suspend payment, and the most prudent were iu their turu drag ged iuto the aby is created by the spea ulators. Bombay has raised herself slowly and painfully from this fearful crisis, and now aspires anew, but with more p udenco, to become once more the commercial metropolis of India. CiitAiVr AKU IJIIA. There can be no question that the President still clings to th fond hope of a Third Term. The result of the Ohio eltction has l-een canvassed, turned over and looked at from every conceivable stai dpoiut, with a desire to find in it some indication that the "emergency" has at la?t arisen when Grant shall be called upon for the third time, to save the Union and the Re publican party. He Las formlly promised the nation that he would not airaiu trouble it for office until t.hit .P .. "eruertrerry' sn:il nave ans n in , - ... . nonesr, sensiuie men oi ms party n- ceived this promiaewitu fediogs of intense gratification. They saw ia it an opportunity of finally getting rid of the troublesome incubus, before he had utterly ruined the prospects of his par ty, and before he had brought any fur ther disgrace to the country. When thin promise was made, the fail u eof CleweJbCo. hadnbtbeenauaout.c ed. . Brother-in-law Dent's vile conaee tion with the discharge of the Barit g B-os., London, and the substitution of IJIevs & Co. as agents of the Treasury D partment in England bad not then been made public. Everybody knew that Grai.t and his family connections had grown to be immensely wealthy, but everybody did n t know that the Treasury Department was the source of all this wealth, ai d that Clews & Co. aud brother-in-law Dent were the conduit pipes leading from the Treas ury, through which all luis wealth flowed. And then, too, Delano! wbatof him? When this fair promise was made, De lauo had not resigned. The official records aud proofs of his black-mail-iug ojjerat'ODS, and the documents which led to the Secretary's resigna tion, had not been made public. Delano not baviug rt signed, his suc cessor could not, nece-sarily, have been appointed. Ol J Z icti Chan der was quietly at rest in Michigan, dis turbing fcobody. nor anything. He was where the Republicans of Michi gan had placed him when thy defeat ed h'm for Senator, to save themselves and the Senate from the disgrace of his presence iu tho first legislative tri bunal of the at ion. ThesH things bad not transpired when Grant's promise was made. The honest aud sensible men of his 'arty lived iu daily dread of somethiug ter r.b'y disgraceful that might at auy moment happen, and breitbed a s:gh of relief when the promis-e was given, coun ed thoush the promise was. with 1 a Iz-in! nf iiiAtifal reM4i va.t.liiit 1 hat iu cse of an "emergency," it might be come necessary to revoke the piouiie and agtin take fresh bold on the le.ns of p wer. Aud now what will these honest and sensible men say, when th y come to peep at the last band wlrch Grant has dea t himself in the great game, in wlrch the Presidhncy is the stake ? Since the accessiou of O'd Z uk Chandler to Grant's Cibinet, the po litical horizon hs been ctreiu ly scanned, and the Executive eye has again quietly rested on the Island of Cuba. Intim itions of the forthcoming message to Congress on this subject are beginning to crop cut. Tiie ad ministration organs have taken the cue and are falling ia line. The Washing ton Republican, the chief organ, has sounded the key-note, and the little organs will soon take np the choru-. H-re is the first verse of the refrain, taken from the Eejmblican of the 20th: " The necessity of legislation to pre vent the traffic, direct or indirect, by American citizens iu Cuban slive property will be at, once admitted, and the recommendations for that purpose made by the President will be accept ed A3 an earnest of his devotion to the cause of true Republicanism." This, then, is to be the burthen of Grant's next soug to C3gress; War with Cuba! and for what? To pre vent American citizer.s from trafficking in Cuban slave property. The Southern people have no objec- tion to the stoppage of this traffic eve- rywnere over ine wno.e wor.o. me stoppage wouiu not injure one oi tuem. They are forever done with the Lcgro as a slave. Can the Down Eet yan kee say as much ? But Crant does not want to meddle with the Cuban slave trade for the purpose of aiding Republican exertions in the struggle for freedom and ii.de peDdTCs. He Bees that his own party friends wish to be well rid cf him; that they wish to c"ptare nim and bot tle him up; and like t! e cuttle fish, he is preparing to throw out his inky poison to darken the surrounding wa ters and hide bis designp. When the waters clear up again Grant wPl have secured the nomination for the Third Term. XII K ll El.tCIIOI ACiAlX The political coutest in Ohio contin ue to be the principle subject of dis cussion in political circles and columns, throughout the country. No one seems to know exactly what to make of the result. It is evident that neither the inflationists cor bard-ncooey men of the North are inclined to much rejoic ing. They do not know what kind of thing it is, or how it should be served up for the political banquet. It is neither flesb, fish, nor fowl, nor good red herring. The New York JYibune is in the greatest doubt as to what place it should be assigned in the po litical cuisine; whether it should be claimed as food for the hard-money stomach, or given ever as a sort of spider in the inflationists dnmp'ing. Ohio has decided nothing. The enormous number of 525,000 o'.es llei. The result showed that the Hayes party, and the Al.eu pprry were about matched; Hayes gaiumg n ( .

It will, of itself, have no influence in the Penn pylvat ia con'est, tor in any election Thit. will fol'ow it. It is donbt'ess true, that the frame influences which the hard money party brought into the Ohio contest, w 11 likewise be brni?lt iuio the Pennsylvania contest. If these inflanoes shall be successful in Pennsylvania, as they were doubt fully sviccessf d iu Ohio, still, no great political principle will be settled be tween the Democratic and Republican parties. The attempt to reorganize the pobtical parties of the country, on the currency or financ:al question, has nt r!y failed : In a leading editorial, the Tribune, thui daiutly haudles the Hayes uia joritV : Wti hop-- t'iere are to be tin prema ture rjoieings over the defeat of tb- ii fl ttionists iu Ohio, and e eciul th:t tbeie is to bi no c-fssation iu the work of enlig'itttiiing the mi; d an 1 cou-ciences of the people iu every part of the country in regard to the vital snbj-ct of national honesty and boor.

It. was a hard duty uudjr that burning sun, and in the sorclnug sand; but Gen Col&ton speaks highly of the pa tience and cheerful aLciity of tbe Arab soldiers, who carried him thus on their shou'ders for one hundred a.ud sixty miles, to Obeid, without a murmur of complaint or impatience.

The swelling of his liver and abdomeu has i diminished, and with it th. para'ysis' of his lower limbs, but he is still una ble to wa k or even ttnnd aloue. Dur ing his entire illness, he never had fe ver and his mind remained perfectly e'ear in spite of teiribie sufferings. From the slow progiess of Ids cot.va lesence duriig the past, two mouths, it is probablo that he will be obliged to remain at Gleid three or four months longer before he is able to start ou his leturnto Cairo, for there are no vehicles in that c 'tiniry and tbe easiest conveyance procurable is a pacing donkey. ibince General Colston's c mditiou's became known in Cuiro, h has re ceivdfrom Gentr-d Stone, Chuf of the General Stafl tl e strongest txpres pressions of his appreciation if the courage, fortitude aiid dense o. duty, which n-nde Gen.

A few months go it wai painful to walk through the stre ets of this staunch old Puritan Coy and note the general stagnation if bus )n"s. The heaviest houses r. present ing thp different branches of trade were doing conjpurtative'y m.t.Ii.ng, clerks leain d ag-iiust the counters with h:-.iuls iu poektth or peeped idlv out of the windows, se-.vu.g meu cune with their bundles of linishi d work ai.d weie ;o!d that their services were no longer n quired; ,he anxiety f-jl by the le-diug business men showed itse.f upon their faces and ihe list of "fad ures and suspensions" publ.sh.ed from day to-day 111 the newspapers was i e-id with more than the u-ual m-U-tes? . It. was ihe opinion of many that tLe stiuted cremation money, the prevailing la k -f contideticH i.e tweeu buinoa m -u, tae strict otuo my practiced by a 1 classes, and the frauds committed both pnb'uc and orivate institutions would resii t iu serious c msequeiics to the propei i ty ot the country. Tiie ajipmaoh of tail, however Ins 1 rought, about an increased deuiand for goods and laboi aud ;.ew life has beeu imposed into business circles bv the brightened prospect. Trade has nviVcd and there is every indication of easier cir cumstances.

Mestr.i. L- & Sbephard are men of lr.t gnty at:d bo .esty, and tho sympathy tor their misfortune is wide-spread. The political contest iu this city waxes hotter and stronger as election day approao'if s. Massachusetts hns four distinct parties iu the field, ; -.d many are the speculations ad vauc d! from every quarter. The Muiist. rs t-eting, at have just held a political m - which they pro ested against the en dorsement of the license law by the Republican and Democratic parties Oue of the resolutions passed at this meeting was as folio?: " It seems to ua, therefore, that the State should be as decided in suppres sing its drn.ki' g houses as in sustain ing its schools, jnd that christian men should be as d-cided iu oopo-ing liquor d: inki. g as in "Ustuiuiug the church. Tho licensed liquor traffic, as it is to-cay, imperils the -children of every family in tue State.

Uniting by this declaration our views, we ask therein the candid consideration of our fellow citizens and we appeal to the citizens of this commonwealth to so vote as to rebuke thoso who would betray the ciuse of temperance." The Prohibition party seem to fake a very reasonable stand point and have acted wisely in separa ting the mselve-. from Republican cor ruption. The Ihbor Reform party still exists but iu a diminished state. It is reported that not more thau thir- ty were present at the meeting Leld to nominate a candidate for Governor. TLe Democrats are confident of re-, electing Gov. Gastou, and judgi'g from present indications they hae every reaoti to expect such a recu't.
