A Ramble Among Lhe Leading Bnsin

literally alive with tho buzwaod whir of m
VO?CFS, all engaged in examining ?nd pr

ive saw packed up on the sidewalk, mar
and ready-fur shipment to different points,
had expected to find the interior thron
and animated, we con.'ess that we were
prepared to find such strong evidence of 1

Amos K. and John W. Clark the juc
members of th? house, and thc sons of

and good business habits. Both were in

and the latter served in Cobb's legion,
was up-to the time ot General Cobb's dea

that Christian patriot and gallant soldier,
warmest testimonials of his confidence s
approval.
AL the close of the war, entering into i
partnership with their father, and taking,
they did, almost the entire control of the I

A Friti-b View of thc Cotton Trad
Our readers may take, for what they m
think them worth, the following statctnen
of thc London Telegraph, in reference to tl
supply of cjtton that may be expected fro
the places of growth for tho present year,
is thc English manufacturer's side of tl
question ; but even viewed in that light
may be well to be informed in reference
the opinion held by certain partim, whose ii
terest it is lo got cheap cotton. Its ?pecul
tions in reference to the size-of the pre^ei
crop in this country* will, in all probabilit
turn out immeniely too high.
The most careful estimate we have Bec
' gives the new supply available for "Brit:?
, u.;c up to the 30th June next from aH sourct
as 2,087,500 bales, and thc demand for CQI
sump:ion a?d export during the same perle
as 1,716,000 bales, leaving as a probab!
stock, at the above date, a total of 888,27
bales, including that now Ou hand. Ver
few of thc calculations, however, take Ie?
i than 2,000,000 bales as the American crop <
thc present year. Wo believe it to be cap?
ble ol d?monstration thal every est?mate .
that crop for tho last 20 years bas proved t
fail ?hort of the ultimate rOHtrlt. At the clo?
of the war the quantity which it was thougb
might be received at the American port
was set down by some at 1,250,000 balen, au
the extreme limit of tho-ino?t sanguine wa
2,000,000, whereas the quanti'y actually re
Ci-ivcd was 2,055,000 bahs. We haro n
doubt a similar result will ill low in the pres
tut instance. The report of the Indian cot
to i c?op is also favorable, and it is now ad
mined to bc quite equal to that tf last year
while oredit is given to the indian Govern
ment for its exertions to improve the qualit;
of the staple. Of the Egyptian crop it is sta
ted that the supply available will be quit?
equal to 1805, when wc received 411,001
bales from that quarter alone. What is ever
more important is that the present crop is s.
superior in cok r, staple and cleanliness ti
the preceding one, that there will be an econ
orny in the working to the extent of 15 pei
cent. We may also point ont that thc im
portation of cotton into Great Britain las!
' year exceeded that of 18G0, the previous lar
gest year of import, by 400,000 bale.?:, aud
thc home consumption hus reached about tht
sa mc'amount as then in bales, though -on I j
about 80 per cent, in weight. On the 28tL
of December, 18'JO, tho prices were : Fail
Dhollerah, 5jd; Western, 4|d.; Middling Or
leans, 7d. On thc 28th of December, i860,
they were: Fair Dhollerah, 12Jd; Western,
lljd ; Middling Orleans, 15jd.
.lt is perfectly plain from these figure.",
and from what we know of the coming sup
plies that, unless the markets of tho world
are so hara of manufactured goods M to give
at XII carly day a great stimulus to Lancashire
industry, the price of cottqn must fall con
siderably before it can be sai i to have repli
ed its natural level. But the truth is, that
we have gone on exporting more.than ever,
and many foreign, marketa arc glutted ; ao
. that a yiolcnt reaction in the price of the raw
material ?3 a possHjili'-y to be always ke(5t
ia view, as soon as arrivals begin to tell on
stocEs.

Wny THE IMPEACHMENT wrr.i. FALL.-Cap
ital is proverbially timid at all times, and it
may reasonably be pardoned for being . unu

sumrnsted, or even seriously attempted, would

three years ago. There ?re many who sneer
at tho idea of the removed pf Johnson by tho

value of Government bonds, or increasing the
premium on gold. 1
Tbcif stoicism would bo more reasonable if
they could explain, upon some other bypothc
si? then th?t they so loftily deride. Why the
other day gold jumped three per cent., when
in fact, as to inrcrnational affairs, everything
was transcendantly lovely, and the arinerine
bird hung sospended at a very encouraging
elevation. But upon rigid inquiry it was dis
covered that a gentleman by the name of
James B. Steadman, of Toledo, Ohio, had
made his appearance on Wall street that
morning and expressed the conviction that a
serions attempt was about to be made to im
peach the President, and upon his mere opin
ion gold bad gone up three per cent.

Mexican Affairs.
M exican affairs are as usual in a puszling con
dition. The iat<rst news from Mexico is that Orte
ga hal been captured hy Ju ares. This Ortega is
Child' Justice of tb? Mexican Bepublic, and, the
teru: of Juarez baring long tinee expired, claims
to bs *x oficio President by the providions of the
Con ititutioo. . Thci-o men are tb? leaders of the
two wiui?s of the so-called niberal Party; and,
acv jrdir-g to the latest news, the better man of the
two bas been betrayed and captured. For it it
said thatOrtega wat betrayed ly chiefs who pre
tendsd to ospouse his eaute. The difference of j
principle between Juarez and Ortega seems to be
thii tatt tho former pleads necessity for bia vig
orou< imposition of forced loans and extraordina
ry contributions, and for tho conBteation of all
propurty of Imperialiits ur adherent! of Maxi
milian, as his only means of obtaining supplier :
whilo Ortega is iu favor of amneity and oblivion
.ef tbe patt. The Cabinet at Washington recog
nize Juarez as Resident of the Mexiean Republic,
latte mtantlme Maximilian is in tho capital,
making efforts, which seem to be dying onei, to
retail his weak foothold. The French troops are
to rt urn to France before ?be close of March.
So the fight in Mexico, which has for a long
time Leeu a triangular affair between Maximilian^
Juemt aud Ortega, may now be considered as
narrowed down to a two-sided ikrimmage. Why
?tor* iot the United R'a'O' soire the difficulty by
?.tabdabing a " protectorate ?" No matter whom
it pm teds, whether Maximilian, Juarez or Oft?

picture wat a gorgeous oue, and very novel,
tat ttock itill, an?! "axed until tho scene wai
guerreotyped in our mind. And then we ?gu
up* and pitehed in. And oh, the fuu ! At
every one waa masked, and very many were
ercd with dominos. Take ou- word for it
wit and humor flashed out from behind ma
niaik ; and th ut the exchange of sentiment,
cy and folly wat delightful. We orerh:ard ir
a single combat that was intensely amusing.
And thu} it conliuued until ll o'clock, wh
grand fanfare from the orehestra announced
hour for unmasking. And tbtn, at if a fairy
wared her wand, off dropped the groie/que mi
and the shapvless dominos. And man and woi
stood rerealed. And ob, the merry laughter
thc gay word? over the strange rerela'.iomand
odd recognitions! And tho eres of men v
daxtled at the array of beauty and grace
paised before them; and the ono who eould I
upon that stre/tm of lorelioess at it glided thro
the mazes of the deuce, or rippled up and di

spoken, melting melody, and not acknowle
that the fair ones of Augua'a were the peer
any other? of the daughters of christendom,
must pronounce as fearfully devoid of taite,
deed such an one could not possibly show ca
why sentence of death should not be pronoun
against bim.
? But come with ut on a promenadt through
hall, and let us :ee if we can't tell you what sc
I of these beautiful costumes are, and the namei
their wearers. We can mention very few, h<
ever; for we were almost a complete strang
and did not like to be ton profute or penittent
our inquines, for fear of being tet down a
strong meinwcr of the l'oko-your-nos?-into-eve
body ol.-eVbuaincsi Society:-a character
which wo are not at all ambitious-not eren fo
moment. In this promenade we hare on enr a
a lady formerly of our own State and Districl
Mri. A. C-e, bandiorae, witty, aceomplii
ed, and of the immensest laeoir vivre ; she we;
an exquisite evening dress of apple , green si
with ?'grand train, the whole trimmed withblo
lace and twan'a down; she girei us a note ni
and then.
Herc is ? lady wearing a petticoat of pink ti
. covered with a long and flowing orer-tkirt
white tarltane studded with white Marguerite?,
rei! of pink tulle floats from her hair ; she it Mrs.
B-1, and represents Aurora; no c?rtame, in f
room it more beautiful than this. We tee her bu
band orer yonder, splendidly and truthfully gr
ten up in the rich dress of the high Amorici
gentleman of 17T0-such a costume as Gen. Wai!
ington were before the war.
Here it another lady, young and piquant?, re
resenting " The Bonnie Blue Flag;" ber skirt
short, and formed of red and white bars ; hi
boddice it-of red relret; her scarf it of bb
tulle ?nd glistens with silrer stirs ; her cap is 0
numen tod with a black, plume; and here ?nd the
?bout ber costume are ?mall bonnie bine flag
Sho il Mri. deni. W-1. Her husband it preset
drolled in the uniform he 10 honored-that of
Confederate General. They are evidently prc
digious favorites in Augusta society ; and if h
has bia deserts in no other respect, he certain!
bas them in one,, i. e.-that of the brave doservin
the. fair.
And here ii a petite blonde dressed most chare
iogly ?1 Little Bed-Biding Hood; the looks ac
playi ker sbaraetor with tho sprightliest ID tell!
gonce j she li Mn. S.-n. her husband is the court
ly Slr Walter Raleigh who cac bo icon hero an
there ?nd everywhere. Both these are member
of the Committees and they are unselfishly exert
ing themselves to contribute to tho general en
joytnetL
But nh? is this Uroly follow eonruliing thi
audience with'his inimitable grotetquerie.t He i.
drosied as a Cour.t Jester of the feudal ages, witt
cap and bulls, and of all the nefors in this ga}
scene he is the best. He is like Touchstone, th?
clown in Shakspeare's "As You Like It"-"goed
at anything, and yet a fool." He is Mr. D--.n.
And who it this match picture of the other sex?
She plays " Folly."- Her trkirt is of red merino,
?hort, with two rows of wbito vandykes, and from
tho point of each randy ko danglot a round gilt
button enclosing a tiay tinki-?.-; her cap it o? the
quaint traditional shape which " Folly" were in
oldon times ; tiny tinkler! ornament this cap, and
?lao box low corsage, and alto her hom?opathie
whit* satin booU,- ted at abo scuds tbrmig? tho
long reel rind agitates all tbo liny tinklers with
tho most bewitching n?trete, she certainly makes
th? prettiest picture we eVej saw. If " FolJj" is
thu?, giro her to u* always in preference tb winter
facod Wisdom. But we grow blasphemous. Thft
lady it Mr?. Major W-1, and ?he i's knewn-to'

And just behold these three tattercd'Confeder
ate privates ! You bar? all read of the fbreo sol
dier!1, who, just before thu surrendor, took refuge
in a cave on the Appomattox, and there abode for
. ne year, s.nd then appeared in the stroets of Pe-,
tersburg, not haring " heirn of tho surrender.7'
Welt, these are the selfsame reba ; and they put
BS in mind of old Jack Falstaff saying " there's
but a shirt and a half in all my company," and
tho thought of taking these parts waa decidedly
a uns rt one, and they are playicg it off most ad
mirably;^ much so that they ore. the pets, of
the a-sembly. They aro SLsaars.S-g, C-dj
and E-s.
And this queenly figure? It is Miss C-s
in the character of Mary Queen of Scots' ft
mor. decidedly handsome and truthful costume,
much enhanced by the grace aiid dignity of the
woaror. "White satm petticoat with trail cf black
velvet bordered with ermine ; corsage, ruff end
headdress in thebistorical style.* '
And this-the most striking face, figure, bear
ing and costume in the room I It is ?fl Liberty in
"tho United-States in 18r?7." Sho wears a long
robe of riebest and deepest bl.?ck; manacles ore
upon her wrists; upon her brow she wear? a
gloomy iron crown, a roil of heaviest black ?rape
shades k-r sad bat imperial featttTe-s. The figure
is startiin.f, and sets one to thinklng. It is Mies
T-r. i'rery body admires ii cr fanatically.
And this ,-duiiantt little Bo Peep, who "has
lost her sheep and cant tell where to find them,"
and goes about -?ith her litte short skirt, and her
little Arcadian ha*, and her shepherd's crook, ir.
search of them? lt is Mrs. H. B-:. And he'r
husband is near ber, looking eminently handsome
in the splendid Highland costume of Macbeth.
And this ravishing lillie Vivandi?re, in a cos
tume, which as regards richness, taste and integ
rity, is absolutely faul less? Ilia Miss A-e
D-h. She bears a canteen full of the beet
wine, and gives a drink to her i pecial favorites.
She is a very bright and a very particular 'tar.
The smallest-footed Chinese Icily would die wilh
envy over Miss D-h's feet.
And speaking of little feet, let us here intro
duce an episode. Our ribs are sore still, where
men, old as well as young, punched us to " look
at those feet." Never before did we soe so many
heavenly feet. Ani these med who would point
out " those feet," did it with an air of integrity
which wuuld hare set well en Aminadab Sleek, or
with a smile of innocence which would have be
come Joseph Surface. Oh, this wicked world !
Aad here we must clone; and that too without
making a beginning. Other costumas were as
beautiful, and other ladies at fair, and other gon
tlomen as gallant, as any we have montioned; but
wc knew them not. And oren if we did, -timo
and space and pi?par fail us. And then it is so
impo/iihle to choose between these "roses of
Sharon" und these "lilies of tho valley." For
her? ?re a hundred fair ladies, in whose yer.-ons
stand* the perfection of the bexuty of form. Beauty
suores in all their steps ; it is cli quent in ?ll their
actions ; it flows in their ringlet ; it sits radiant
on their cheeks in heavenly smiles ; it laugh.! in
the dimples of chics ; it beanie in the cloudleis
heaven of their ejes ; it throbs iu the emotions of
their glowing bosoms; and mingjes with the
moral graces of their stainless lires.
And after the above, shall we dare to he to " of
the earth earthy" as to mc ut iou the Supper f
Te'? it is due to those who prov ?del it. And tbeae
of course were Mr. NlCKMSOX, Proprietor of the
Planten, and his able Lieutenant, Dr. DVKCAX.
Sui':, t it to say that all tho substantiels that go
to make up a good meal, and all the delicacies
that constitute an epicurean one, were to be found
there. And truth to raj, they are to be fouud at
the Planters' at any tildi.
And to the kind friend, and his kind and beau
tiful lady, who so particularly invited us to this
spies did /?:?, and so assiduously put us in tho way
of enj.<jing it, we now offer our profoundest
thanks. If they wish for our heart, or hoad, or
h%nd, or blood, or anything that u our.', they have
but tu say tho word.
St. Elmo.
This is (he popular book of the day : so popu
lar that Carleton, the New York publisher, has
had to augment his forces to be enabled to supply
the deniaud. St. Elmo is thc third admirable
production from the facile pon of Alabama's gift
ed daughter, Miss AUGUSTA J. ?ASS.
Had " Beulah" and " Macar?a" been the only
Offspring of lhe extrtordinarj mind ef their gift
ed author, Miss EvAXS would, nevertheless, have
taken x prominent position arnon-: tho first novel
ists, at least, of America. Ie " Beulah" aud
" Macarla" is exhibited a depth of philosophical
ro?e?.rch but rarelj Attained by th? best female
writers. But it 'U of tho third production of Miss
Erxss' erer-readj pen that we aro now to ipeak.
And all we are going to say is that St. Elmo is
remarkably beautiful and true, !oarned*and intel
lectual, aesthetic and womanly. We do not pre
pone lo present to our readers an outline of tho
plot, lest we should thereby ile injustice to the
fair authoress ; fur, a? even rh' most brilliant
stone often owes the greater ps." of its beauly to
the skill displayed in its settinpr, so does the merit
of a plot owe most of its suecv- "o the grace of
it* infolding and the skill of lit presentation and
developement
There is hardly a single page in St. Kimo that
does nut boar the impress of the high order of
talent accorded to its author by tho almost unani
mous voice of the American prc. In the proper
acceptation of the term, poetry is not confined to
rvthmical combinations of word; : oft-tinfes there
is more poetry to be found in what is properly
classed as prose than in writin?.- improperly dig
nified by an appellation they dc not merit. In
illustration of this, we might qtMto hundreds of
beautiful passages from St. Elmo; but then DO
extracts taken at rs,ndom from so excellent a
work, can convey a just or adequate ide? of its
beauties as a wholo.
Parents can-with clear conscience put St. Elmo
into the hands of their children. It ls free from
all the guilty rapture? and glittering indecencies
)f the Braddons and Wood; and Reade; and Col
linses. The book may be had in Augusta at any
one of the places where books ara sold-Oates's,
Richard;', Schreinej'ii, Quinn's.
? A Wonderful AlicroNCOpc.
We call particular attontiou to the advertise
ment of the celebrated Craig Microscope on
another column. The editor of the New York
unday School Advocato- Rev. Daniel Wise, D;
D.-says : .
" The simplicity, cheapness and great magnify
ing power of the celebrated 'Craig Microscope
struck me with surprise. 'Then I waa examining
fly's eye by its aid, and was struck with wonder
I the skill and power of the Creator which is dis
played in its structure. When I i>aw a statement
n an adrerti?era<*? that this microscope inagnl
"ed one hundred diameters, or ten thousand trmes
nd could be bought for $2.50, I thought it was
one of the many humbugs of the hour, for I had
paid $20 for a microscope not long before. But
now I Ced it to be a really valuable instrument
hieb I sfaould l)ke to see introduced into the
families of our readers in plaeo of the manifold
useless toys which please for an hour and then
are destroyed. This microsenpo would both amuse
and instruct them, and I advise every boy and
girl who wishes to know tba wonders which lie in
little thing? to save his money until he has $2 75,
J and send it to George Meade, Racine, Wisconsin,
"and he will prn?uptlj receive this beautiful new
microscope hy mail, postage paid.

(1 ARLINGTON," the intelligent and
excellent Washington correspondent of that
excellent paperj ti e Chronicle *f> Sentinel,
uader date of tix? 30th, say-? :
? It has, been determined to await until the
meeting of the/-.iie-:t session-of Congre&s to
re-open discussion on the various r?volu tiunary
.ideas which havebeim agitated daring this
session. There Viii certainly be ii lively time.
Butler ia -Tidea raring, by all'tke power and
influence be y menses among a certain cites,
to keep tho impeachment fever at'its full
height, but is meeting with signal'fri lure>;ey>
erywhere. He is determined to cut a' figure
next March, and it is intimated that he will
pay his repeats to Gen. Grant very forcibly
in revenge for imagined injuries received from
that officer. Indeed, it is stated that the re
doutable Butler bas already been the instiga
tor of a certain, redohition. which wes, intro?
duccd in thc House not long ago by Ashley,
.Calling for on examination into the conduct
of certain high officers of the Government,
the intention of which was to embrace Grant
in the investigating procesa. Tho 'friends of
tue latter had their eyes open, however, and
[oneof them charge-lit upon Ashley. Not
only charged it with being au attackonGrant,
but asserted that Butler wrote it ; and Butler*
did .write it. We vzish the new session- all"
speed ; for, If the sigas of tho times ore df any
value, there will be bickering enough io the
Radical clans lo give :orservative people cause
for joy. They are already breaking np and
refuse to herd together so closely on all polit
ical topics os formerly. Let. them agitate
their pet theories-still furtber, as they are
bound to do, and there is a chares ..foi the
country. Discussion on them'has only been
stopped trow because tlje Appropriation Bills
need attention. All those will bc fixed t?p
by the 4th of .March, and an opea Held will
be left for reconstructing the Sourh, impeach?
ing the President and reorganizing the Su
preme Coure. Let Brooks confront Butler,
and Stevens war with Bingham, and let the
Conservative^?) Radicals in the Senate op
pose, as they will, the doctrine of Weudefl
Phillips, which be now proposes to introduce,
and tbere wrll bo the deil to pay."

The Springfield Republican lus the follow
ing sensible remarks on Jefferson Davis'con
dition :
Mr. Greeley is reported to have used his
influence with the President, while at "Wash
ington last week, in connection with Charles
O'Conor and Mr. Shea, counsel for Mr. Davis,
to procure the releas? of the nation's prisoner ;
and it is ?aid that th ?re in a prospect that be
will soon bo released, on bail or parole. Mr.
Greely will be blamed by samo pf his friends
for his* persistent efforts to obtain the release
of Davie, but they are creditable both to bis
head and heart. Th? President, with'all bis
obstinacy io some thiBgs, has shown great
want, of courage in this. The detention of
an alleged criminal without tri il ' fbr more
thau a year and a half, is in violation of the
spirit of the Constitution and tho general
sense, of }u?iico, and fn thia case the hardship
i.s aggravated by the nature of the crime for
which Davis was arrested,- that of complicity
in the assassination of President Lincoln.
Gnilty, as he is, of conspiracy against the. na
tion's life, that furnishes no excuse for hold
ing him under accusation of a more Qowardly
and monstrous crime, without, trial and with
out apparent evidence. Ii President Johnson
had been both just ?nc1 brave, he would have
released him on parole long ago.
SUICIDE ON A RAILROAD THAIN.-We re
gret to learn, says the Columbia Plioeniz cf
yesterday, that Mr. McConnell, (of the firm
of McConnell k Good lett, Greenville, S. 0.,)
while in a statt?of mental aberration, com
mitted silicide on Wednesday, on the Green
ville train. He applied to- conductor George
Isaacs for permission to go into his room,
which was granted, and, a short time after
wards, when Mr. I. entered the room, he
found the unfortunate nan lying on his face,
on the floor, with his throat cut from ear
to ear. An inquest was hold on the body at
.Belton.
Mr. McConnell, we believe, was a former
resident of Augusta.
