THE DAILY TIMES.
TUESDAY. SEPTEMBER 21
The most interesting topic ot conversation with
a majority of our renders at this season ot the year
is tho slate of the cotton market. Its rise or tall
affects in a more or less* degree the interest of
the whole community. It would be impossible to
speculate with any degree of certainty as to the
price of this staple if the future is to be a counter
part of the past. Never did a market open with
so much activity and briskness and with such
prospects of a roady sale ou ihs part of the pro
ducer. Every omen was favorable and every ZIo
that swept from the east brought on its wings tne
joyful tidings of a steady advance in thu articie
The cotton was readily shipped for sale and near
ly all the markets were in advance of cotton re
ceipts at this period last year. Alas, however,
for human hope- and prophecy ! Scarcely a week
has passed away and the cotton has declined near
ly one cent without any apparent good reason.—
The yellow fever tnay embarrass a little the trade
near our home ports, but cannotaflect it abroad—
> otwiths-tanding the treat y of peace with China
and the settlement of the India difficulties, the
Persia's news—the latest up to this date, (Sept.
2latj—brings us a decline on all the grades of cot.
tori. With such fluctuations in the opening of the
season, it is not probable that our buvers wil l fall
before the iosatiaie and insatiable Moloch of ex
travagant speculation, any nvre than our farmers
will refuee to sell but store their cotton, when it is
bringing so lair a pne* as ten to twelve cents. —
The prospect of a large yield ol cotton has long
since faded away, the rust having injured it to an
extent not yot fully ascertained. Then in view of
all these circumstances —the shortness ot the crop
—the peace ovei the waters —the present market
price—it would be well for larniers no longer to
hold back their crops for oetter and more favora
That dreadful scourge, the yellow fever, has vie
ited some of our Southern Cities and still contin
ues its ravages. New Orleans is the most infected.
The mortaliiy in that city, since the commence
ment of the disease, has averaged abuut fifty or
sixty persons a day—Galveston has not escaped,
but has also been visited by the fever—Mobile and
Savannah have also had a touch of the disease.
The former to the extent of an epidemic, the latter
confined to a few sporadic cases.
There iB little interest in the political world. —
The olection in Illinois will s on take place and
we will hear no more of the politics of a State with
wheh we have intermeddled, as well as others,
more than was necest-ary. Judge Breese has writ
ten a letter in which he demands the authority of
the Editor, who announced his declension from
tho Senatorial race at and professes allegiance to the
time-honored principles of the Democratic party
and not the political fortunes ofone man.
State affairs are moving on well with Governor
Brown at ihehead. The Western and Atlantic
Rail Road still continues to pay dividends beyond
the most sanguine expectations of the best finan.
cier. The question of popular education is attrac
ting some atte tion throughout the State and it
is more than probable, that the next Legislature
will give it that attention which its importance
merits. Belore it, the Railroad schemes, which
are proper in their place, sink into ins gnifieauce
The endowment of a University is also discussed
and is worth the highest consideration of the Leg
islature. Jefferson could not die until old Vir
ginia placed her name at tho head of the list for
a thorough university education. Tne school now
lives of which he is the father, numbering over six
hundred students and is a monument to his wis
dom and greatness—other matters of minor inter
est are being discussed in the State which will be
developed at the m ’eting of the Legislature Un
til then, we wait with patience the settlement of
the Main Trunk Railroad difficulties, tho Su
preme Court decision, and other questions to be
submitted to that body.
G P R James, Esq.
It is with sincere iegret, says the Richmond
Ei quirer, that we learn that this distingu shed
author, and excellent man, will finally leuvo Rich
mond on Tuesday next for New Yoik, where he
will probably rake the steamer P rsia of the 29th
inut., for Europe, to assume at once his new and
responsible duties as Bri i>h Consul-General at
Venice. The reders ol the “Enquirer” are famil
iar with our cordial appreciation of Mr. James’
eminent merits as a l’terary man, and as an or
nament to the social circle. We have had an cp
portunity of becoming acq tainted w.th his sim
plicity of manners, his warm heart always open to
the charities of life, ard his high bearing and lofty
integr ty ; and we speak the hearty sentiment of
his many devoted friends, when we say that the
departure of Mr- James, and his accomplished and
charming family, will producia sad chasm in the
s cieiy of Richmond. In his free and cordial in
tercourse with our people, and in his just apprecia
tion of our institutions in speech and
writing ,he has ever sh >wn himself to be a modest,
high toned gentleman, and a sagacious and honest
observer. For many months he has made the
town of Ashland his residence —and we learn
that, when a few days since, he parted from his
friends there, the most stoical spectators of the
scene could not suppress their deep emotions.—
That was but a typ; of the universal feeling of re
gret which will be felt bv our whole community,
when the hour of separation shall arrive.
In grasping the hand ot the honest and gallant
Briton for the last time, we wish new honors, pros
perity at and happiae-e lor nimseli and family, and we

Colored Men’s State Convention.
Troy, N. Y., Sept. 14.—A Colored xMen’s
State Convention is in session in this city. Wm.
Rich is President, and about forty delegates are
present. Resolutions were introduced to-day,
supporting the Republican State ticket, but have
not been acted upon.
The New York Evening Post, says:
A rig iticant item in the annual statistics of the
cotton trade is the large increase this year—33l,
000 bales—in the exports of Great Britain, while
our own spi"n j r have taken only 452 83 hales,
which is 2 3 533 btleGess than the previous year.
A significant question is being forced on our
attention by tho Quarantine charges at New York.
Is it necessary that cotton destined for the English
spinners should be exported via New York ?
There is not the slightest necessi’v for any such
thine. There is an utility in it, however, to the
New York commission merchant and the Yankee
ship-owner, and, under a very reasonable idea,
that the charges which they manage to tack on
the raw material impart to it an additional value.
We do not look for any change in our practice.
The theory, that everything we export shall go
through New York, seems, indeed, to fol ow from
the proposition that every thing we import shall
come the same way. Thus we go, Hurrah for

The National Horse Exhibition at

The third National Exhibition of horses
in this city opened to-day with the most
gratifying prospects of success. The weath

tne day have- most fully realized the antici

The display embraces a large number of
the most celebrated horses in the country,
the whole numbering about five hundred.
The general calvacadeot horses entered lor

grounds this morning several times, pre
senting one of the moat magnificent equea
train spectacles ever witnessed here.
In the Park grounds the remainder of the
day was mostly occupied with the exhibi
tion of various classes of horses, whose
trials of speed and display of the superior
qualities attracted enthusiastic admiration,
This evening a public reception took
place in the City Hall, at which spirited ad
dresses were made by Mayor Phelps and
Dr. Chaffee, of this city : S .lon Robinson,

was occupied by ci'izeus and goes s from

was a very pleasant and enthusiastic afftir.

A writer in the Westminster Review
once took the position that alcohol is food,
and offered the following logic in prool
“Food is force,
Alcohoi is force,
Theretore alcohol is food.”
Dr. Mussey gives a formula equally legit
imate and conclusive, namely :
“Horse feed is torce,
Whipping a horse is force,
Therefore whipping a horse is horse feed.”
Good logic tolerably; equal to :
“A horse has legs,
So has a man,
Therefore a man is a horse.”
Kissing.—Hardly any two females kiss
alike. There is as much variety in the
manner of doing it, as in the faces of the
t,ex. Some delicate little creatures merely
give a slight rub of the lip. This is a sad
aggravation. We seem about to “ have a
good time,” but actually get nothing.—

tenances. This, which is not a common
case, is too much likt Cannibal Islands, and
soon drives away a delicate lover. Others
struggle like hens while burying themselves
m dry dirt. The kiss is won by great ex
ertions, and is not worth as much as the
trouble it costs. Now, we are in favor of
i certain shyness when a kiss is propoposed,
out it should not be continued too long; and
when the fair one gives in, let her adminis
ter the kiss with warmth and energy. Let
