THE COTTON QUESTION.
The Southern States the Only Reliable Cotton
Region in the World—The Cotton Experiment
in India and its Failure.
From a lenethr article In the New York Utt
aid on tho Future Growth and Supply of Cot--
ton" tho great ' topic oi tneasy we make too
following extracts: .
AMERICAN SOUTHERN STATES THE ONLY RELIABLE
COTTON REGION IN THE WORLD.
We possess the only, extentlre and reliable
cotton region In tho world. All thought of
rivalry or Hopes o( its supplies oeing superseded
by other regions are totally absurd, and are only
entertained by vislopary mes.er by those who
are Ignorant of Its cultivation. .
We matt understand 'tbatAibere are about
fifty varieties of the gosypium, or cotton plant,
and that out ot the whole number there aro on
ly about four cultivated for commercial purpo
ses, eaoh of which is an annual, and requires
replanting every year. The perennial cotton
trees of the tropics aro wholly useless, so far as
the quantity or quality is concerned; their pods,
or bolls, are small and comparatively few to
the tree, while the fiber of the cotton Is coarse,
harsh and brittle. We must comprehend the
fact that tho annual plants cultivated In the
United States aro only adapted to a climate
where rain and sunshine alternate, with suffi
cient heat to mature the plants and that they will
oot stand the extremes of drought and rain
common to all Intertropical latitudes, when the
only plan which can bo employed in rearlog
them consists in irrigation a method too arti
ficial and expensive ever to be employed on a
large scale; bence, when we bear that India,
Africa, Algeria, Egypt or Central America Is to
compete with the Uulted States, we know that
the thing is simply impossible.
' In tho United States the northern limits of
the cotton culture are bounded by 34 to 36 de
grees north latitude, omitting Intervening
mountainous elevations and strips of sterile
soil; and by the shores of the Atlantlo Ocean
and the Culf of Mexico (the latter being In lat
itude 28 to 30 degrees) on the south. This oot
ton region extends around ths Gulf of Mexico
through Texas to the mouth of the Rio Grande
on the Bouth-west, . and stretches In a north
easterly and south-westerly direction from about
the longitude of 76 degrees 30 minutes to 98
degrees west of Greenwich.
The main cause of the fertility of the coun
try thus described 1b attributable to the great
baain of water known as the Gulf of Mexico
and the Gulf Stream, whlob passes out paral
lel with the shores of the Southern Cotton
States. The waterof tho Mexican Gulf. heated
by the rajs of a tropical sun, causes aa Im
mense evaporation, whieh, la expanding or
drifting north, or toward the elevated lands
east ana west ot toe Mississippi, is condensed
by cold air, and produces frequent showers du
ring the warm months of spring and summer,
and whioh are the life of the cotton plants. A
similar process takes place along the Southern
Atlantlo States. The evaporation from the
Gulf Stream is condensed by the cooler air of
the Alleganiea, Thus we have an immense re
gion of cotton lands ores whioh nature, has
established the most wonderful system of irri
gation known in the world, in combination
with the proper amount of heat and richness of
son. w nen we consider tnat these neat nhu.
teal advantage have been united. w4tb .enter
prise, skill and slave institutions, managed by
Amenoan intellect, unaer tree institutions all
tending to their development, oromoted bv th
uwy jueu moor sui.aoie w me culture oi oot

THE COTTON EXPERIMENT IN INDIA AND ITS FAILURE.
j ORB. '.......
In 1840 the Hon. East India Company sent
an agent to tho United States, with a cart
blanch as to expenses. He engaged the servi
ces of ten experieuced American cotton growers,
taken from the beat cotton districts of the conn.
try. Several were from Mississinn i. two from
Louisiana, three from Alabama, and two or
tbree from Georgia. Ther were en raced at
good salaries, and bound to remain In India five
yean eaoh. They were supplied with large
quantities of .the best American seed, cotton-
gins, plow, noes, cotton-presses, and every pos
sible appliance calculated to Insure success.--They
passed through England, visited Manches
ter, and were made acquainted with the view
and wants of th spinners. They were sent
overland to India, and distributed in the best
cotton dlstrlota to be - found In that vast region.
They were supplied with all th laborers they
wanted, at three oenta per day each, they sub.
listing on rioe as food. '
one ot tne planters. Mr. Terrv. stated that
In Mississippi one hand could cultivate five
acres, make five bales of cotton and his own
provisions. To do the same woik in India, It
required three weakly Asiatics to the acre. An
African at the South, being well fed on pork,
beef and corn bread, with vegetables, and well
clothed, could do about as muoh real labor aa
half a dozen puny Hindoos. Mr. Terry was
sent op to the Uundlecund , District, near the1
oas eoi tne Himalaya mountains. When he
Aral reached this locality he olanted on a thou
sand sores In cotton, near the olose of the raioy
season, which came op, grew well, bloomed
and boiled favorably) but just at this stage In
it growtn uie orouiu set in, t tie beavensjseem
ed turned to bras, and not a drop of rain fell
in ninety days. His plants withered, the leaves
dried np, the blossom fell off, and the result
was that he only gathered 69 pounds of ootton
to tho acre, against abont 1,000 to 1.200 nonnda
.in Mississippi., i, , ; . , ., .
Value of an Explanation.
A certain king, it is said, sent to another
king, saying, "Send me a blue pig with a black
tail, or else ",, Th other, in nigh dudgeon
at the presumed Insult, replied, "I have not got
ono, ana H 1 naa " uu wtuob weiebtv
cans they went to was for maiiy years. After
a satiety or glories and misei.u. tbey finally be
thought them that, as their armite and resour
ces were exhausted and their kingdoms mutually
laid waste, It might be well enough to consult
about the preliminaries of peace: but before
tbia could be concluded, a diplomatic explana
tion was first needed of ths Insulting language
which had formed ths ground of th quarrel
"What oould yon mean," asked the second king
of the first, "by saying, -'send me a blue pig
with a black tall, or ele V " "Whv." said
the other, "I meant a blue pig with a black tail,
or els some other color. But," retorted he.
"what could 'yon mean by saying ! have not
got one, ana it i naa v " wny, of course,
if l baa i snonid nave sent it;" au explanation
which was entirely satisfactory, and peso was
conciuaea soooraipgiy. ( ;.v " , -..

"Occasional's" Correspondence of the Press.
Enmity of presidents and Vice Presidents for
Speaking of Vice Presidents, it k a ourleus
fact that lor forty years past th Vice President
has either been at enmity with the President, or
has been lost sight of In th distribution of
patronage, except when he became Chief Mag
istrate by th death of the first ofuoer of the
government. Mr. Calhoun and General Jack
son had an early and a aevere difference. Vice
President Richard M. Johnson never wielded
much power under Mr. Van Buren's adminis
tration. Had Harrison survived, there can be
no doubt that John Tyler would have been ut
terly ignored, and the same may be said of Mr.
Fillmore, who mounted over tho coffin of Gen
eral Tailor into tho Presidential ehair. . In
1844, when Polk and Dallas were elected, the
friends of the latter in Pennsylvania exulted in
the prospect of controlling th rmtronaee ot the
Federal Government, because their justly dis
tinguished favorite occupied so olose a relation
to the President; but Mr. Buohanan, a shrewd,
cautious, schemlnc politician, located at Lan-
euter, checkmated them, and, befor th 4th of
March, 1845, had not only put himself into the
Department of State, but had nut his rival. Mr.
Dallas, under a shadow. From this day to the
expiration of the term of President Polk, Mr.
Dallas had no influence whatever. The early
death of the venerable William R. King doubt
less saved him from a similar mortification un
der the administration of President Pierce. '
In 1856, when the favorite son of Pennsylva
nia was chosen to the high position he now oc
cupied. In comoanv with tbevouns Kentuckian.
John C. Breckinridge, he had a striking exem
puncation or the raot tbat It Is almost impossi
ble for the President and tho Vic President
to agree. From the moment that James Buch -anan
entered the White House, his besetting
Infirm ity seemed to bej suspicion of all his old
menus, ana eaiousy ot tne nanasome Vice
President. Ia vain did the friends of the latter
appeal for patronage. Tbey were coldly and
haughtily excluded. The framers of the Consti
tution Intended to make the Vice President a
counsellor of the President. Ia fact, hia con
nection with the Senate, and the vote he receives
at the election, ought to put him before the
Cabinet; but the reverso has been the case, with
very rare exceptions. Now, the Vice President
generally assumes the relation to the President
tnat nas been oooupied in England, for man
years, by the heir apparent to the reigning raou-
One characteristic exception Is furnished to
this rule, and that is tho manner In which Old
Hickory trusted and confided in Vice President
Martin Van Buren. Jackson's friendships were
so tenacious, that, whether he stood by a poli
tician in petticoats or in pantaloons, he rarely
gave up one to whom he was attached. Vn Bu
ren was not only his intimate and confidential
friend, but his daily counsellor; and when the
man of iron nerve mounted the second time to
the highest office in the world, he caused it to be
understood that his successor should bo tha Vic
President, and the fiat was carried out. It re
mains to be sees whether Mr. Lrfiooln will Imi
tate Jackson, bv adhering to his Vice President.
or whether he will fl) into tho tut in which most
or his predecessors have followed. Mr. Hamlin
la a safe, experienced, and thoughtful man, an
old Democrat, who, during hia connection with
the Democratic party, exercised very gteat pow
er In New England, and was cherished as among
niu. cacctire ana trusted oi onr leaaara.
He Is still inspired with many of the ideas of
