Colored Cotton.?Ales. R. McKee, U.
S. Consul at .Panama, forwards some new
specimens of cotton to Washington. In his
letter he says: "I send you cottjn grown in
Panama from the seed received from Wash
ington. 1 also send you two specimens of
cotton from Sierra Pino. The white* cotton
Wi- taken from a tree seven inches in diame
ter,'the top branches of which are about fif
teen feet from the ground, and spread about
twenty feet each way.
"The colored cotton was taken from a simi
lar tree. Cotton in that part of Pino is of
five or six different colors. The trees are so
full of cotton balls that you can scarcely see the
leaf. They seldom have had rain here for the
last 16 years. Pino is situated forty miles
east of Paitn. Soil sandy, but very produc
tive. Where there is water the soil is best.?
The trees from which this cotton was taken,
were planted, but never cultivated."

The New York papers announce that a
Court of Inquiry has been ordered to convene
at Brooklyn on Monday next, for the purpose
of investigating ccrtain charges preferred
against Alban 0. Sumers, Chief Engineer and
Inspector General of the iron-clad Monitors.?
The charges are made by Admiral Dupont,
and mainly consist of assertions alleged to have
been made by Mr. Sumers at the dinner table
of the steamer Arago, on his way home from
the attack on Sumter, to the effect that the
Monitors had not had a fair trial,?that they
were in as good condition for action the day
after the fight as they were on the previous
morning,?and that Admiral Dupont was pre
judiced against the vessels. He is also charg
ed with having asserted that the commanders
of the Monitors were anxious, to renew the
fight, and with making false assertions and
using disrespectful language towards Admiral
The Chattanooga Rebel of the 21st contains

court of inquiry.
