A PLAGUE O’ THIS COTTON. A traveller from Charleston to St. Louis on the Missouri, in a letter lo a friend in the former city, thin describes lie-manner in which lie was bored with the • crnal siylit and sound of this staple pra- ,nre of the country. “ When I took my hist walk "along the iharvcs in Charleston, and saw them .filed up with mountains of Cotton, and ill votir stores, slops, steam and canal boats, crammed with and groaning under, the weight of Cotton, 1 returned to the Planters’ Hotel, where I found the four d,iily papers, as well as the conversation of the hoarders, teeming with Cotton! ■('often!! Cotton!!! Thinks I lo mv- sdf “ I’ll soon change this sccno of cot- ton." But, alas! il o\v easily deceived is short-siphted man ! Well, I got into my gig an.] wormed my way up through Queen, Meeting, King, and St. PliilipV streets, dodging from side to side, to steer clear of the cotton waggons, I came to the A Ur Brio i. r c. Perry.—Here 1 crossed ype jji the Horse-boat, with several envp- H’ cnituv waggons, and found a number hi tint other side, loaded with cotton, go ing to town. From this I continued on, meeting with little else, than cotton fields, cotton gins, cotton waggons—hut “ 'he wide, the unbounded prospect lay before me !” I arrived at Augusta ; and when I \wcotton waggons in 1 froad-strret, 1 >rhis- fh /J! but said nothing !! ! But this was not all ; there was more than a dozen tow boats in the river, with more than a thou sand bales of the cotton on each ; and so- reral steam boats with still more. And Nun must, knew, that they have cotton wm (do - uses there revering whole squares, all full of cotton; and some of the knowing "tes told me, 'hat there were then in the lii. -e from 40.000 to 5a,000 hales. And !i eubiirg (as a negro said) was worsen, ac- (ii db g to its size ; f r it nuzzled me to ht'l hid) was the largest, the piles of cotton or 'he houses, f now loft Augusta ; and overtook hordes of cotton philters (iroin North Carolina, Smith C ;*ro‘inn, a nd Georgia, with large gangs of negroes, bound to Alabama, Mississippi and Lou isiana : “ when* the cotton land is not worn out.”—Besides these, I overtook a number of empty cotton waggons return ing li une, and a great many loaded with cotton going to Augusta. Two of these waggons meeting one day, directly oppo site me, the following dialogue took place between the drivers—“ What’s cotton .in Augusta ?” s.ays the one with a load.— “ Cotton!" says the other. The enquir er supposing himself not to he understood, repeats “ What’s cotton in Augusta ?” *‘ Its cottonsavs the other. “ I know that,” savs the first, “ lint what is it?”— ' Why,” says the other, “ I tell you ils cotton ! cotton is cotton ! in Augusta, and every where else, that ever I heard of.” “ I know that as well as von,” savs the Sirs', “but yvliat dues cotton bring in Au gusta ?” “ A\ by, it brings inviting, there, but every body brings cotton." “ Look here,” says the first waggoner, with an oath, “ you had bettor leave the State^ for I’ll be d d if vou don’t know ton much for Georgia." “ I continued mv journey passing cotton fields; till I arrived at Holts Ferry, on the Oconee, where T saw three large polo boats loaded’ with bales of cotton, twelve tier in height. F r om thence I went to MTedgeville, where I found the prevail- hig op.c of'lie place, “ what an infernal was,that such a quantity of virgin cotton land should be suffered to remain in tJie possession of the infernal Creek Indi ans" From Mdledgeville, I went to Ma- ( '‘. l n 4 which they s-iy is surrounded with fnost excellent cotton land ; but the town it i< supposed, will grow much faster when t becomes the seat of Government, and has more banks. From thence, I mov ed on to tiie westward, crossing Flint K ver, and from thence to the Chnttaho- Tiiie found cotton land speculators thicker •Inn locusts in Egypt. But from Line Creek to Montgomery (14 miles) the land is nearly level; the fields of one planta tion joining by a fence those of another ; \md all extending hack from the road far ther than you can distinctly see ; and the cotton pretty even, and about as high as the fences, and has the appearance (as Hi ley says ofZahara) of a complete hori- son of cotton. They have, almost all of them, over-planted ; and had not more Chan one-half their cotton picked in ; each plantation has a cotton gin. I next came to Montgomery, which I found over stock ed with cotton, and no boats to take it a- way. From Montgomery I went to Blake ly, and on my way, saw many cotton plantations, and met, and over-took, near-* Iv one hundred cotton waggons, travelling over a road so bad, that a State Prisoner eould hardly walk through it to make his escape. And although people say that Blakely is done over, there wasnot a little cotton in it. From there I crossed over to Mobile, in a small steam boat loaded n P to the top of the smolce-pipe with cot— tyr*. This place is a receptacle monstrous for the article : look which way you Afcill you see it; and see it moving; keel boats steam boats, ships, brigs, schooners, wharves, stores, and press-houses, all ap peared to be full ; and, I believe that in the three days that I was there, hoarding with about one hundred cotton factors, co-ton merchants, and cotton planters, I must have heard the word cotton pronoun ced more than 5000 times. From Mobile I went to New Orleans, in a schooner, and she was stuffed full of cotton. I arrived at New Orleans on the 8tli of February, on the night on which Miss KppIIv was to make her first appear ance there; and F went to the Theatre.— I was directed to go up a certain street in the' upper Faubourg and turn into the first conspicuous brick building, lighted up on the right. I did so ; and h 'TO d behold! I found myself in a steam cotton-press house, where they work, watch and watch bv candle-light, screwing cotton. After an examination, however, I went to the play : and after that was out, I enquired the way to a licensed Pharo Bank, tfc was told that I would find one at the Louisiana Coffee-house, just below the cotton-prcss, opposite to a cotton warehouse.—I dont know how many hundred thousand hales of cotton there were in New Orleans; but I was there onlv six days, in which time there arrived upwards of 20.000 bales— and when we dropped out into the stream, in a steam-boat, to ascend the river, the levee for a mile tip and down, opposite the shipping, where they were walking balp.s cn end, looked -as if-it was alive.— A Kentuckian who was on hoard, swore the cotton had rose upon the town :“don’t you see,” says lie, “the bales marching up the levy.” Coming up the river, T saw many cotton plantations, and many boats at Baton Rouge, Bayou Sarali t and other intermediate plares, loading with cotton. And in passing the month of Red River, we took on hoard five more passsengers, who live near Natchitoches. They say that they cannot get boats enough in the river to bring illecotton down that is made there, that they make the best cotton they ever saw ; that they have the best cotton lands of all the cotton countries; and that if they continue to settle up there as fast for the next five years, as tliev have for the last, they will he able to inundate the world with cotton! ! At the month of Ar kansas River, we took on hoard about fif ty negroes and two overseers, who had made a very excellent crop of cotton in the Territory, hut found it too unhealthy a r>lacp to remain, and were gome back to North Alabama. From Now Oileans to the month of Tennessee River, we passed about thirty stenm-bonts, and more than half of them laden with cotton’ also about twenty fiat boats a day, for ten da vs, and about half of them were loaded with cot- f on. When we got up to the Muscle Shoals there was more cotton >n waiting than would fill a dozen steam-boats. I went bv land from Florence and Tuscnmbia, to Huntsville. There is a vast deal of cotton made about the Shoals, in North Alabama ; and thev go all for quantify and not for finality. Ginned cotton was selling there for about six cert's ; and most of the les ser planters have sold theirs, in the seed, at one and a half. After leaving Hunts ville, T passed to Nashville; and on my wav, saw an abundance of cotton and cot ton fields. The Tennesseans think that no other Stale is of any account but their own ; Kentucky, they sav, would be, if it could grow cotton: hut, as it is,it is good for nothing. They calculate on 40 or 50.000 bales of cotton going from Nashville this season ; that is ; f they can get boats to car ry it all. “ From Nashville,.! descended to Cum berland riveF a steam boat, between f wo ki’elhoats, the' Cherokee and Te.cum- seh, (poor Indian names, that have rang from Nickajack to Michilimackinac! now doomed to hear the burthen of the whites !) all three piled tin with cotton’, and after getting below the Shoals, to Clarks ville, thev s'nnped and took in 30 hales more I left this boat at Smithfield, at the mouth of Cumberland, where, th^re was another large steam boat loaded with cotton tor New Orleans. After seeing, hearing, and dreaming of nothing hut ot- fon for seventy days and seventy nights, I began to anticipate relief. For on the route I took, whether by night or by day or by stage or by steam boat, wake up when or, where you would, you were sore to hear a dissertation on cotton. .One night, in Mobile I was waked up about two o’clock, bv two merchant’s clerks, who slept in the same room, and were just going to bed. They were talking of Lottery Tickets ; and says one to the o- ther, “ If you were to draw the 50,000 dollars Prize, what would you do with it ? “ Do with it ?” says the other. “ why?” would take 25,000 dollars of it and build alavge, fire proof, brick store ; and with the other 25,000 dollars I would fill it with cotton, at 8A cents, the present prices, and keep it till it rose to 17, and then I would sell.” But this is only one item of a thou sand. On the 16th of March, there came a long a steam boat from Louisville, bound to St. Louis, and I took niv passage in her. She had not a bale of cotton on boaid, nor did I hear it named more than twice in 36 hours. We ran down the Ohio to its mouth, thence up the Missis sippi, and I had a pretty tolerable night’s sle^p ; though I dreamed of cotton.— Having business in Illinois, T left the steam boat and walked three or four miles to Kaskaskia. Here I went into a pub lic-house, and, being somewhat fatigued called for refreshment. They showed me into a room by myself, and brought me some hot coffee, warm beef-stakes, tfec. and I felt so happy that I could not help exclaiming, in the language of Shakespeare ‘Now is the winter of my discontent made glorious summer,’ by my escaping from the realms of cotton; bat I had scarcely began to eat, when I heard a most terri ble to do, in an adjoining room ; the noise grew louder and louder, till, at last, the door ot mv apartment was burst open and iu came three men clenched together “in a fight. “Cotton /” exclaims one, who appeared the most in earnest, give up the money!—I’ll have my money Cotton.— You’ve cheated me (hitting Cotton at the same timej Cotton\" I now laid down my knife aud fork in a paroxism of dispair ; and exclaimed with the poor little French man, “ By Gar, here’s Monsieur Codon j come agen !” The Copartnership, which existed under the firm of II.
