In all diseases effecting these organs,

there is everything in fact in our favor
except legislation, and it liehooves us
now with this great future dawning up
on us, to bring all our forces to bear
upon this point, and to secure the pass
ing of such laws as will be conducive to
the interests of this trade. Our national
trade policy is not, as it now exists, fa
vorable to an extension of our commerce,
and stands in need of amendment. The
unsettled state of our currency is also
somewhat of a drawback to us, but at
tention being now aroused and turned
seriously to the brilliant opportunity
which lays before us in taking our fair
share in the productive supply ot the
world, the minds of our wise and think
ing men will naturally concentrate
tnemseives upon the subiect, with a
view of devising such modifications and
amendments in existing laws, and the
framing of such new ones, as will remove
the disabilities under which we now
labor and open up the way for the enter
prise, capital and labor ol the American
nation to take that position in the em
poriums of the world to which the ex
cellence of her manufactures justly
entitles her, so that in future years a

lowed to ferment or weeks, large quan
tities of free acids Iicing thus produced,
This fermented flour is boiled in water
in one trough, whilst china clay, tallow,
soap, and frequently other ingredients,
are boiled with water in another trough,
both mafses are then mixed together and
diluted with sufficient water to bring it
to a certain specific gravity, and the
warps are then passed through the mix
ture, dried, and subsequently woven
twili the weft.
Now, the result of this is, that when
goods thus treated are put 111 a damp
place, the cloth absorbs a certain amount
of moisture, and, containing as it does a
large proportion of free acids, all the
conditions necessary for the speedy pro
duction ol mildew are fulfilled, lle-
peated experiments and observations
show that the presence of free acids acts
most quickly and certainly in producing
copious mildew growth, but if that acid
in the size lie neutralized with eoda ash
or other alkali, or the size washed thor
oughly to free it completely from acid,
mildew grows with much difficulty, even
when a large amount of moisture is pres
ent. S)ine interesting investigations by

Symptoms of a Diseased Liver.
PAIN in the right siile, under the edge
of the ribs, increases on pressure ;
sometimes the pain is in the left side ;
the patient is rarely able to lie on the left
side ; sometimes the pain is felt under
the shoulder-blade, and it frequently
extends to the top of the shoulder, and
is sometimes mistaken for a rheuma
tism in the arm. The stomach is affect
ed with loss of appetite and sickness ;
the bowels in general are costive,
sometimes alternative with lax ; the
head is troubled with pain, accompan
ied with a dull, heavy sensation in the
back part. There is generally a con
siderable loss of memory, accompan
ied with a painful sensation of having
left undone something which ought to
have been done. A slight, dry cough
is sometimes ?u attendant. O The pa

Tlir Future or Cotton Prori notion In the
The idea has been very prevalent that
the. production of American cotton was
on too large a scale, that the market was
glutted to such an extent that prices
which would remunerate the planter
were not obtainable, and the southern
press have almost unanimously taken up
the cry, ''put in more grain, raise your
own supplies, more food crops and less
cotton, and this has not been entirely
without benefit to those for whose advan
tage the cry was raised, as it has induced
thousands to grow their own hreadstufls
and raise their own meat, who formerly
gave their undivided attention to the
cotton crop alone. But it has not had
the effect of diminishing the production
of the staple; on the other hand it has a
tendency to increase it, as the more self
supporting the planter becomes as re
gards the supplies necessary for his daily
wants, and the feed required for his teams
and stock, the less money he has to pay
out to the provision merchant and the
more he is able to devote to the im
proved cultivation ot such land as is al
ready under crops, to tne breaking up ot

That the excessof supply over demand
tends to the reduction of prieeH below a
profitable figure is undoubtedly true, but
tliat this excess exist or is iiKeiy 10 exist,
we vcrv much question, and the problem
naturally arises, how much American cot
ton is demanded by the wants of the
world. How much can the world t ike
before prices fall below the mark at which
ttev vield a fair profit to the producer.
Our lartrest crop on record was that of
1859-60. but there was a demand for
every bale of it, and it was sold at re
yince the war we have averaged large
croos. and for the past three years the
average production has exceeded 4,000,
000 bales, still the planter has been en
abled to realize such prices as have
compensated him for his labor. In re
viewing this question, we must of course
take into consideration the increased
population of the countries using our
cotton, also the large consumption
in our own country, and if in I860, it re
quired crop of over 4,500,000 to supply
the wants of the world, and the con
sumption per capita is estimated as on
the same ratio, then we find that some
6,000,000 of bales would not be too much
to produce, and realize a profit upon.
Tbere seems to be not the slighest oc
casion for us 4o be frightened that the
crops in the future will be too large, as
the consumption is yeaily increasing,
and the time is probably not so far dis
tant as may at first sight be supposed,
when a crop of 5,000,000 bales of Amer
ican cottn will be regarded as compara
We need not be alarmed, then, when
we read from day to day of the increased
area which is being put under cotton
year by year, for we may confidently look
for the demand to keep pace with
the supply. We must, however, take
advantage of all the facilities,-we pos
sess, and find a really profitable market
for our production, and abolish as
goon as possible the present anomalous
state of things. Why should our cot
ton have to be sent from the gin-house
to the roast, and thence across the At
lantic to be manufactured, and the im
ported aa fabrics for the consumption of
the very people who have grown the raw
material? All this transportation, of
course, entails expense and adds very
materially to the price of the manufac
tured article, and surely there is no alt
solute necessity for a continuance of this
system. That we can manufacture as
well at Manchester is satisfactorily
proved by the great 'popularity of our
fabrics, both in the European and eastern
Uiarkets; and, in add it inn to the having
in freight charge, we have a very de
cided advantage iu omr magnificent water
power facilities over Manchester, where

one whole summer.

There was then no "job" acting,
whereby an actor might, look forward to
earning a few dollars, even in the dullest
time; no snap companies going out for
the fourth, or piaying a lew nights licre
and there in the cooler country towns;
but when the regular season was over
the actor had to subsist until the follow

profession, hoi. Smith was a kindly
man, with a great deal of grim humor
and a brave endurance of the hardest
fate. So tall was he that when he tos-:cd
me up in his arms I used to think that
he would throw me into the fkies. To
inychildish imagination he seenifd many
miles long, that summer his hat cov

of some soft woolen material, of light
color, which caused them to soil easily,
and as he was a very clean, particular
man. the pants needed freouent washing.
so he used to lie in bed while they were
rubbed out in soapsuds.
It seemed to nie such a strange thing.
that Mr. Smith would lie abed the whole,
long, lovely nimmer's day on the plea of
sickness, while at the same time my la

would crack jokes together and laugh
till they both cried. And such an om

his recovery was invariably coincident
with that of the delivery of his panta

time he would unfold them he would ex

By the beginning of August the pan
taloons had shrunk so that they no longer

What Knins Children.
iue of the greatest defects of this age
is the "fastness" of our boys and girls.
And every bit of it is traceable back to
the homes, where idle news carriers drop
in continually, and are permitted to un

Children hear more than is ever believed,
and the winks, nods and hints that they
catch at intervals excite their curiosity,
and to satisfy which chances are not
wanting. Hut to prevent betrayiog that

that such a sale was to le made a large
crowd gathered to see the woman, and
many were wondering if the authorities
would allow such a disgraceful scene to
go on. At 10:..0 the woman was brought
out. Her name was unknown, but she
was recognized by some of the by-stand-ers
as a person who had worked in a mil
linery establishment on C street before
the fire, and her character had never
been questioned. She seemed perfectly
eomjio-ted in the presence of so large a
crowd and never moved a muscle of her
face as the auctioneer called out for the
first bid. She stood in an elevated posi
tion dressed in plain muslin, without any
special attempt at display. She was a
handsome brunette.with regular features,
dark hair and eyes, and a complex fern as
pure as wax. She was finally knocked
down for $&, and, to the surprise of every
