Tlio New Orleans Times, of a late date, gays : llio question of the supply of cotton and its prospective prices continue to exorcise the brain of economists and others, many of whom, however, seem to judge of it from a standpoint which accords with their own interests or the community in which they live, and re ject all information from whatever source it it conmcts with these interests and views. Persons are thus biased i n their opinions, and while many of them are erroneous, doubtless, nevertheless they are honestly entertained. Thus we find traders in the North with, perhaps, more assumption than knowledge, assert their belief "from sources entitled to ull cred it," that the cotton crop largely exceeds two million bales, and we will likewise find others in our own section who place it at seven or eight hundred thousand bales. We lind the planter and the mer chant, the holder and Ijie buyer, widely at variance in their views, both as to the amount of the crop, and the price it should bring. We need hardly go bpyond the limits of our own city to verify this statement. Merchants with equally creditable infor mation disagree, while there are few buyers who will coucur with the former, either as to the amount raised or as to its future value. Upon one point only is there no controversy, and that is as to its being a "short crop." That is an admittod fact in all business circles and by all classes, planter, merchant and buyer. But whether it is only one million bales as urged by advocates of higher prices, or amounts to two mil lions, as calculated by those of opposite ideas that is a subject of controversy, and must continue to be for a month or two to come. The latn decline in the great staple, however, was the result of a combination of causes, and by no means predicated alone on the supposition ol a better yield than was expected after the un favorable weather of September the most unfavorable for thirty years, we have been told by planters. The fait of gold, the condition of exchange, contin ued depression iu the manufacturing districts of England, and the unsatisfac tory state of the goods markets, these, too, contributed to affect the market, which so weakened that some persons predicted low middling would touch 2j rents before there would be a reaction. The prophecy was not fulfilled; for, whatever may be the cause or causes, the market has ruled Quite steady for ten daya, and just now it is very firm, and a number ot factors are much above tne market. What prices may be a week, a month hence, is another thing. The Proposed Impeachment. The Newburyport Herald thus com ments on the proposed impeachment of President Johnson: Now to our mind the proposition of impeachment is one "0 full of danger that he who fathers it must be short sighted or terribly depraved. There is not a rational man in tne country that docs not gee that it carries upon its very luce the commencement ot a civil war, by the side of which the late rebellion would appear as child's play. Before any one accustoms his mind to -wander too far in that direction, let him inquire if be is prepared lor a state ot anarchy that would destroy the value of properly, that would repudiate national and pri vate debts together, that would darken the sun of republican liberty, that this ceutury would not see its face again, and would make human blood run in the streets till every dog wonld lup it like water. If any man of lighting age fa vors the deposing ot the 1 resident in the present state of the country, let him join a military company ui once, ana drill as often as he eats; ana u ce is not nt that age, but has boys that are, let him call them to him on the first oppor tunity, and looking them fairly in the face, decide whirh of them, or bow many he is ready to see di.e rather than see Andrew Johnson President of the f 'nited States till the 4th ot March, lttC'J r It is lime this insanity ceased. If we are not all cray, or drunk, or Wad, we ..ball loll all men of all parties, who pro pose alien schemes, "away devils, we ll none of j ou." We want no more war; no more slaying of the firstborn; no more maimed men, or disconsolate wid ows, or orphan children, upon our peu sion list We want no more public debt, and no higher taxes than we now have. We want no President who would put State against State and man against man Iu da41y array, by ignoring the rep resentatives w" tie r,".')nle; and we want no representatives to lual id rcns"n, right, and public duty, as to propone deposition of the President, The liuies Ju-e Ull p nough of danger without any such madness. very good and true man or every man who loyes his MEMPHIS. TENNESSEE. FRIDAY EVENING. DECEMBER 7, race or his God, will seek peace, not war; restoration, not destruction; pros perity, not anarchy; and love to all men everywhere, and bate and malice to none Large Eyes. Large eyes have always been admired, especially in women, and may bo con sidered essential to the highest order of beauty, in almost every description ot which, from Helen of Troy to any mod ern heroine, they hold a prominent place. We read of " large spiritual eyes," and "eyes loving large," and of " little, sparkling, beady eyes," to which the epithets "spiritual" and "loving" are never applied. An Arab expresses his 'idea of the beauty of a woman by saying that she has the eye of a gazelle. This is the burden of his song. The timidity, gen tleness and innocent fear in the eye of the " deer " tribe are compared with the modesty of the young girl: "Let her be as the loving hind and the pleas ant roe." Persons- with large eyes give us the impression of being " wide awake," and ready for action ; while small eyedjeo pie have more generally a " sleepy look" and a sluggish temperament or habit of body. Dr. Redfield observes that " persons with large eyes have very lively emotions, think very rapidly, and speak fast, unless there be a predomi nance of the phlegmatic temperament. Of persons with small eyes the reverse is true. The former are quick and spontaneous in their feelings, and in their expression of them, and are, there fore, simple, like the Scotch, Swiss, and all who inhabit mountainous regions. The latter are slow and calculating, and, therefore, artful like the Gypsies. There is a connection between activity and the ascending and descending acclivi ties, a fact which we evince in running up and down stairs, and which an active horse exhibits when he comes to a hill ; and hence the Scotch Highlanders, as well as the sheep, goat, chamois, etc., have very large eyes and very great activity. Josh Billings on Laffing. Lading is strictly an amusement, al though some folks make a bizziuess ov it. . . . It has been considered an index of charakter, and there is some so cluss at reasoning that the) can tell what a man had for dinner bi seeing him laff. I never saw two laff alike. While thare are sum who don't make enny noize, thare are sum who don't mako anything but noize and sum agin who have muBik in thare laff, and others who laff just as a rat does who haz caught a steel trap with his tale. Thare is a mistako in the assershun that it is no comfort to hear sum luff's that cum romping out ov a man's mouth like a distrik skool of young girls just let out tew play. . Men who never laff may have good hearts, but they are deepsected like some springs, they have their inlet and outlet from below, and show no spark ling bubble on the brim. I don't like a giglor ; his kind of laff is like dandylion, a broad yellow, with no bit of good smell about it. It Is true that enny kind ov a laff, if it iz honest, is better than none; but give me the luff that looks out ov a man a eye, lust, tew see it the coust is clear, then steals down inte the dimple of his chsek and rides in an eddy there awhile, then waltzes a spell at the corner of his mouth like a thing of life, then bursts its bouds of beauty and fills the air for a moment with a shower of silvcry-tongucd Bpurks, then steals bak with a smile tew lair in the heart tew watvh agin for its prey this is the kind of laff that 1 luv and am t afraid ov. Noble Sentiment. This is an agreeable world, after all. If we would only bring ourselves to look at the objects that surround us in their true light, we should see beauty where before we beheld deformity, and listen to harmony, where before we could hear nothing but discord. To be sure, there is a great deal of anxiety und vexation to meet; we cannot expect to sail upon a summer sea forever; yet if we preserve a calm eye and steady band, we can so trim onr sails and manage our helm as to avoid the quicksands and weather the storms that threaten shipwreck. We are members of one great family ; we are all traveling tht sunn' road, aud shall arrive at the same goal. We breathe the free air, we are subject to the same bounty, and we shall lie down on the bosom of our common mother. It is not becoming, then, that brother shonld hate brother; it is not proper that friend should deceive friend ; it is not right that neighbor should injure neighbor. We pity that man whe can harbor en mity against his fellow ; he loses half the enjoyment of life, he embitters his own existence. Let us tear trnm our eyes the colored medium that invests very object with the green hue of jeal ousy and suspicion ; turn a deaf ear to the tale of scandal; breathe a spirit of charity from our lips; and from our hearts let the rich gushings of human kindness swell np as troni a fountain, so the " golden age ' will become no fiction, and the " island of the blessed " bloom with more than Hesperian beauty. Compulsory Heroism. In Prussia there is a law which holds every able-bodied youth, from the son of the King down to the son ot tne numblest peasant that hoes his cabbages on the banks of the Spree, from seventeen up ward, subject to be drawn in the military lottery for service in the army. Alter a term of actual service in the ranks or elsewhere, these conscripts are transfer red to the rolls of the Laiidaehr, or re serve militia, but are still liable to be called upon in an emergency to take the field, and, in fact, in the present war ex citement, have been put, for a time, un der drill. It is easy to set that this in cludes the t:rttt body of the younj men of the country the class that is moat anxious to emigrate, and whose presence in the United States is most desirable. fcery emigrant under the ac of aeven leen, though not yut fully tiitiaca of Prussia, is held to be such when he at tains the proper age, in whatever foreign land he may have taken up his raai d:nce; and for a soldier who still has service to perform in the army or in the Landwehr to emigrate to America is, of course, nothing less than desertien. What do we see then T When the emi grant who has been years away from his parents and friends, after accumulating wealth in iha i,'ow 'orld, returns to apenif a few months among them, he is liable to be arrested and held to service for the remainder of the term which, he left incomplete. IaAllGFJiT CITY CIKCCtATIOX. The Cotton Crop Messrs. Neill Brothers & Co., of New Orleans, in their latest circular on the cotton crop, estimate that it will be from 2,050,000 to 2,300,000 bales, or from 41 to 4!) per cent of the crop of ISu'J-'CO, which wag 4,G75,000 bales. These fac tors state that the Mobile district will yield 250,000 to 300,000 bales ; the New Orleans district 750,000 to 8.10,000; Vir ginia and Carolines, 250,000 to 275,000 bales; Georgia and Florida, 350,000 bales; Texas 200,000 to 225,000, and all other sources from 250,000 to 275,000 bales. They say their statements are based upon personal observations made in alt parts of the South by the mem bers of their firm. The lart number of DeBow's Review estimates the crop fro m 1,500,000 to 2,000,000 bales. The Commercial Chronicle thinks it may reach 2,300,000 bales. We give these estimates, without endorsing any one of them, for the benefit of the many per sons who are interested in the produc tion of the cotton crop of the present year. A dispatch from Mobile, dated Nov. 23th, announces that the receipts of cotton at all the Southern ports, from Sept. 15th, the beginning of the cotton year, amount to 400,000 bales. The Reform Movement. It is announced from England that the reform movement is languishing some what, on account of the unsettled condi tion of the weather, which interferes with out-door meetings. Preparations are still being made for the great working men's demonstration in favor of reform, in London, on Monday next, but the opposition of the authorities, it was thought, would interfere with its imposing character. They refuse to permit the use of any of the public parks for a place of meeting, and the Superintendent of the London police has strongly con demned the policy of bringing great numbers of people from, the surrounding country into the crowded streets of the city. The workingmen, however, persist in the movement, and intend to make it a most imposing one, in spite of the anti reform proclivities ot tho Derby Ministry and the Police Superintendent. . Coleridge. Coleridge thus aptly classifies the read ing world : 1. Sponges, who absorb all they read, and return it in the same state, only a little dirted. 2. Sand-glass, who retain nothing, and are content to get through a book for the sake of getting through the time. 3. Strain-bags, who retain merely the dregs of what they read. 4. Moral diamonds, equally rare and profitable, who profit by"what they read, and enable others to profit by it also. There is a street in New York cify where the tenants of every bouse on both sides of the street have applied for licenses to sell liquor.
