THIS COTTON TRAJDJB.
?EOUTIATIONS OF THE GBO WEBB AND DEAX&B3 DT
We take the following from an exceedingly inter?
esting editorial in the Times of India, of October
10, published at Bombay:
In the slightly renewed firmness observable in
/the Liverpool market there ia a crumb of comfort
for creditors and the holders of document bills;
but wo trust there is uo dangor of any European
merchants being thereby deceived in rogard to any
prospective busraoss in cotton. As to the native
dealers, they must bo left to feel the smart from
the rod they are laying in pickle for themselves.
We notice, in our weekly contemporary's report on
the export trado, the remark: "Our market here
has continued very ?troag during tho past week.
Prices have gradually hardened, and to-day close
about 40rs per candy higher than on last Satur?
In accordance with this remark, Dhollera is
quoted 290rs. per candy (9Jd. in Bombay), and
sawginncd Dharwar S05rs. (9Ad). Now, we think
it must be evident to any one in a fair position for
estimating the prospect of tho cotton market at
homo t at tho prices in Bombay are just about
twioe tho figure which is safe for shipments around
the Cape. It is, o? course, possible that cotton
may again go to 12d., but we take it that advance
is in tho last degree unlikely. The chances in fa?
vor of 6d. (equal, say, to 175rs. per candy here) as
compared with 12d. are about twenty to one.
. Gambling speculators may go in for such odds, but
no man worthy the name ot merchant would dream
of doing so, or of sharing the risk with any ono so
blind or reckless. On noticing that the market
had "hardened"'-an indication that some business
ha;l been done-wo were curious to know what
class of persons had been venturing their
rupees in such a leaky craft. On turning to the
same report wo "find it s ated that "consid?
erable parcels continue to go forward on
native account ;" and from other sources
we learn that European merchants are, as
yet, steadily refusing to meddle with cotton
at the present dangerous prices. Tho little trade
there is cannot well go on without some facilities
being afforded by bankers; but we understand that
?6 to ?8 per bale is the utmost rate that is now
being advanced on document bills-a rate which,
so far as we can judge, is a very liberal one to sot
against tho chances of the cotton market at the
| possible time of realization, four months hence.
" The banks having ceased from their race to see
which of them could, m the shortest period, spread
abroad their capital and deposits, aro now desirous
of leaving themselves an ampio margin on docu?
ment cotton .bills for the contingency of low prices.
This being the attitude of the commission houses
and the banlts? the native dealers in Bombay must
be left to ship on their account, if they have
confidence in the absiud prices they are now ask?
ing. No one can object tb tliis, and evon if some
of the up country dealers were to betake them?
selves to exporting cotton on their own account
it would probably be tho commencement of a far
moro healthy state of things. Tue extravagant
rices that havo been current in -Bombay have
een duo, in great measure, to the reckless com?
petition between commission houses themselves
.ind the high scale of advance on dooument bins
by some of the exchange banks, though this poli
-cy has been backed up in ..many instances by se?
riously mistaken advice from home. AH European
houses and bankers are, however, now sn thor?
oughly convinced of the serious risk involved in
committing themselves to engagements based on
the high prices ruling in Bomoay, that they are
not likely to be enticed from their resolution by
the few tempting telegranm which may come,, so
long as there is any uncertainty respecting the
American crop. Bombay commerce can never
right itself until tho merchants here determinedly
refuse to be influenced in any way by the imagina?
tive views in which up country dealers may choose
to indulge respecting the prospects of the cotton
market. Nothing will bring tue dealers to com?
mon sense so soon or so effectually as for the mer?
chants to stand aside-as just for the present they
are doing-and let the Bhattias and Burdas them?
selves take the risks of the Liverpool market.
Hitherto the chief profits of the recent : magnifi?
cent cotton trade have gone to the dealers and the
ryots, and it would only-be fair for those classes to
have their share of loss.
Although wo think that the prices just now ask?
ed for Cotton on Bombay Green are purely spesu
lative, and all but certain to "bring "grief to those
who buy, we would not -by any means he under?
stood to support the notion that the cotton trade
-of Western India is hi itself unsound. It is mere?
ly that the shares in its profit and loss have been'
unequally distributed. If Bombay cotton fetches
6d. per pound in Liverpool, that price will leave a
good margin of profit to the cultivator over a very
large part of the presidency and central.provinces;
but the ryot must be content to take such a price
as will leave the necessary margin for the risks of
exportation. No doubt the ryot himself would be
content with a price equal to 120rs. to ISOrs. in
Bombay; but it is the intermediate dealers who are
not content with the reasonable profits of middle?
men. These are the men who strive to get a larger
share than any one else through whose hands the
.eotton passes. It is thiscasa who, just nowwhen the
season of business should open again, are rendering
sound trade impossible. European merchants are
very little nearer the cultivator now than when the
American war began ; but, seeing that speculative
profits have gone, they must contrive to open up
more direct communication with the producer.
The middlemen dealers have all the shrewdness
and cunning which consorts with keen avarice, but
none of the judgment by which good, business men'
forestall the worst losses incident to a falling
market. If they can be left to hold the present
stock of cotton for two or three months longer,
they will in all probability bo cured for a time ; but
the merchants here, should in future take every
likely means to enable them to dispense with these
dealers, whose profession it is to squeeze the ryot
and fleece the Bombay merchants. The circum?
stances of the.cotton trade in Western India are.
likely to be such as must call for the exercise of
much more economy and care than ever has been
needed before. We do not by any means share the
opinion that the cotton trade between India and
Europe must be an unprofitable one, because prices
will be much lower than during the last three years.
But the question now is between Bombay and the
MofussU, and as to how tho legitimate profits shall
be apportioned. It is possible that next year the
ryota m many districts may find oil-seeds pay them
better than cotton ; but there is already a great
breadth sown this year, and before it is gathered
or brought to market it would he an advantage for
Bombay merchants to signify that they do not in?
tend tc give a speculative price for it. By dins of
improved communication, greater care in ' cultiva?
tion, and increased means for pressing up-country,
the production of cotton in Western India may yet
be extended with advantage to every one concern?
ed. We do not deem it needful to go into any
elaborate argument to support the proposition, that
cotton-ia-far more likely to go down than it is to
remain at the present high prices that are asked in
Bombay. Dr. Forbes' low estimate of. the Ameri?
can crop is already designated on every hand; the
Egytian crop is likely to bs larger than ever it was
before, and the Brazilian and Turkey crops will also
be considerable. The stock in Liverpool does . l.
materially decrease ; Sura ts also form more than
half its bulk, and nearly three hundred thousand
bales more from Bombay ere yet on the sea. From
these, and other obvious considerations it seems
evident that the prices now asked in Bombay are
far above what any prudent firm would commit it?
self to, or countenance in any way. The advance
in fair Dhollera reported in our telegram to-day
has evidently been caused by the comparative low?
ness of that particular stock in the market at the
time ; the great fleet of Bombay ships that are
searing Liverpool will soon alter that.
??.?BATH os* Auausrm DB ITUBBXDS.-Oft Tuesday,
the Uth inst?, between the hours of six and seven
in the evening. Augustin, eldest son of Augustin
de Iturbide, Emperor of Mexico^ died at tho Clar?
endon Hotel, New York. The father-of th? de?
ceased was'the chief promoter of the revolution
which overthrew the power of Spain in Mexico,
and on May 18,1822, he was chosen Emperor of
Mexico as Augustin L His reign, however, was
terminated by abdication, March 20, 1823. A
stipulation was made that the Emperor Iturbide
should receive a pension of $25,000 per annum,
provided he never again returned.to Mexico. Ia
May, 1821, however, Iturbide left England, where
he had resided, -and -arrived in Mexico in July.
The Congress, immediately on his return, passed
% vote of outlawry, and th? ex-Emperor was ar?
rested on the 19th of July, 1824, and at 6 o'clock ix
the evening was shot by the order of Congress.
The pension was continued to his widow, who came
to the United States with her children and settled
in Philadelphia. The deceased had itu* returnee
from Paris, and had been-in aery feeble health Soi
some time previous to his death. His remain!
were, on the 12th inst., sent to Philadelphia.

New York Money Market.
The New York Herald, of Sunday, the 16th inst., states
that the money market is growing easier, the general rate
being six per cent, for call loans, although in some in?
stances considerable amounts were offered at five. The
disbursement ot internst on tho seven-thirty loan com?
menced to-day, and tended to in cree so confidence in the
future abundance of capital, which is strengthened by
the steady return flow of currency from the interior. At
the same ti ne the recent letter of the Secretary of the
Treasury to the president of a national bank at Buffalo,
in which he expresses a desire to return to specie pay?
ments without any large curtailment of United States j
notes, or doing anything to produce a financial collapse,
exerts a reassuring influence, inasmuch as it indicates a j
modification of his former views respecting contraction,
and gives assurance that he will act in the f ature with I
great caution and attempt no impracticable thing.
It is very necessary lo the we .fare of the commercial
and industrial interests of the country, that the financial j
policy, of the Government should involve no disturbance
of the currency, and that the duties of the Secretary of |
the Treasury with respect to tho conversion of securities,
the sale of gold, and other matters liable to affect the
money market, should be made explicit, so that the
public at large may know what to expect and that mone?
tary perturbations may be guarded against. The bank
statement for the week will doubtless be a highly favora?
ble one, reflecting, as it must do, the drain of currency
from the interior. It is net unreasonable to look for an
increase in deposita and legal tender notes of several
millions each, and a decrease of from two to three mil?
lions rh loans, owing to. the .voluntary limitation of busi?
ness. There is only a light supply of good commercial
paper offering for discount, and the best grade is taken at
6a7 per cent.
The gold market is steady. The opening price was
137 ?.followed by an advance to 137 ?-the closing price.
Loans were generally made .by. paying 3a5 percent for
carrying. The export of specie and bullion by this day's
steamers aggregated $1,017,225. of which the Europe took
$446,522, the City of Paris $332,095, and the America
$300,000-making for the week 81,348,562. Tbe clear?
ances at the Gold Exchange Bank yesterday amounted j
to $40,379,000, and the currency balance to $1,726,100.
