According to the traditions .of ottr predecessors, they are also to lie recognised by moral imlications much more than by external signs. By these yon prejudge the race; by the moral imlications* vou can ar rive at a knowledge of the’.care which had been observed in the matches, [breeding] of the intcr- •*' with which crossing had been avoided. *4i® horses of .race do not know effeminacy, the horse is the most lieautiful of the animal's, and its moral, in our idea, ought to correspond, not degenerate, to-his physical character. The Arabs have such a conviction of this, that if a. horse or a marc gives any incontestililc proof of extraordinary quickness, of notable abstinence, oi rare intelligence,-or affection for the hand that gives it its food, they will make every possible sacrifice to draw a race from‘it, being persuaded that the qualities which distinguish it will be manifested in its breed. .. M c lielicve, then, that a homo is truly noble, when to a lieautiful conformation it unites valor anti fierceness, and when it evinces pride in the smoke of powder and tHe combat This horse will esteem its master, and will scarcely ever jiermit any one to yiount it except him. . . *■ It will not urinate ivliilo it is travelling. • It will not cat the leavings of any other horse. It will r t disturb the clearness of the water with its hunt legs when it passes over it By its hearing, by its sight, and by its smell, it will know bow to pre-serve its master from the thousand accidents which often take place in the chase and in war. Anti in short, sharing the sensations of sor row anti pleasure of its rider, it will aid him in the light struggling with him in all parts, anil will always make common cause with him (ika- telma JRakoh-hon.) See, now, the evidences of the purity of a race. • . . \Ye have marvellous histories concerning the qualities of horses; the result-of all is that the horse is the most noble of all creatures after man —the most patient and useful. It is suppor ted with little, and if it is'regarded in the jxiint of strength, wc shall find that it is at the head of all the other animals. The more robust ox can raise a quintal; hut if this weight is put upon it, it meves with difficulty, and cannot run. The horse supports a man, a vigorous rider, with a standard and his arms, and what is niore, wit s' out eating or drinking. With its aid the Arab is able to save what he possesses, to cast himself upon the enemy, to follow his track, to fly, anti to defend his fnmily and his liberty. -Suppose him rich with all the wealth that makes the hap piness of life, nothing is aide to protect him save his hor-.-. Do vou comprehend now the intimate affec tion of the Arabs for the horse t It is equal, and more, to the services which it readers, them. To it they owe their joys, their victories; and they prefer it to gold and precious stones. Dur ing paganism they estimated it by. interest, and only because it procured tor them glory and rietoM.) tun since the Prophet spoke ofit with tlio greatest praises, this instinctive love was transformed into a religious duty. I One of the first words which tradition attrib utes to him, are tiiosc which, according to it, he directed to the various tribes of Yemen, who presented themselves to accept his dogmas and to offer to him,'in sign’of submission, five mag nificent mares which belonged to the five dif ferent races that were then ill Arabia. It is related that when Mahomed came forth from his tent to receive those noblejtnimals, caressing them with his hands, he expressed him self in these terms:— * "That yc may be blessed—children of the Afterward s,at a latter time, the Ambassador of God (Rassoul-Allnh) adds:— "Hew ho maintains and cares fora horse for the cause of God shall be counted in the. number of those who do alms by day and by night, in se cret or in public. He shall be rewarded, bis sins shall be remitted, and fear shall never shame fully enter into his heart." I now pray God that he might give you eter nal prosperity. Preserve me in your friendship.

There is a cotton factory now in operation in a State adjoiningX/misiana which pays twenty- nine per cent on the capital invested! It is certainly a large figure, and wc must confess frankly that we ourselves were somewhat sur prised at it, thoqgh we have long been satisfied that we here in die South are overlooking some of the surest means of wealth and independence, and devoting too much of our time and thoughts to matters that pay but a veiy small per cent upon capital thus valuable. The factory we re fer to is located in Choctaw county, Mississippi, and has been (oing on noiselessly but most suc cessfully for anmnber of years past. TYc sus pect there are no politicians connected with" it, or we should long since hove known all about it, and its whplc capital would doubtless have been brought to bear in numerous elections, ev- e P> ® ne °f which wits specially intendfd to save the South. So quietly have the affairs of this very pecu liar institution been. mSnageil that few pcople. even m the State in which it is situated, prolia- blji have had, until recently, any definite knowR e 'JK®.°f 'L _ We do not recollect to have seen any allusion to it in the papers of Missisissinpi until lately, and in only one or two at all. Col. AYil- hams, the editor of the Mu$L«sippi Planter and Mechanic, wjio, by the way, is doing much to forward the true interests of the State in thedc- velopment-of its agriculture and of its domestic resources in general, lately paid a visit to this rotten factory in Choctaw County, anti from his letter we makethe following interesting extract: ‘If wc were in search of an argument to prove the practicability* and value of manufacturing cotton and wollen goods in Mississippi, we would want nothing more to the point than the success of the.Choctaw factory. Starting with but lit tle capital, remote front market, anil in the niitlst of a community that entertained prejudices, rather than kindly feelings, it has increased and grown in consequence until a community of near 300 souls are now deriving support from its op erations, while to the stockholders4t is paying a dividend of 20 per cent. It is perliQp* one of th^best managed concerns ^>f the sort to bo found in the South, combining economy, skill, .utility anti system in its details. For tin's the company arc indebted, to a great extent, to the prudential administration of their excellent Pres ident, William Wesson. We were particular ly struck with the quietness good- order, and sound morality of the' little town. The opera tives, nude and female, all looked cheerful and contented, which, of course, bespoke liberal and punctual .-ompensation for their lalioa." This cx tact ought to Ik* embalmed in the columns oi every paper in Louisiana, and we nuy- add in theSoutn.

At the entrance of a dining-room stood two Arab slaves richly attired.

Two little slave girls presented fine napkins, the ends embroidered in gold, on which we each shook the rosewater from our fingers.

A correspondent of the Mobile Mercury, writ ing from DcKalb, Miss., says : The attention of inventors has long been di rectcd to the discovery of something to super sede the clumsy screw for compressing-cotton on plantations. M;.ny contrivances have presented themselves for popular approval, but still the oM fashioned screw, .with its long arms akimbo, jrroudly stands,-* noticeable feature on every limitation. Of course, it will sooner or later lave to faU before the inventive genius of our people and T am not sure but its timb has about Some. Mr. C.

The car was only partly tilled—one side free from enctinil>raiu«e. Upon its cushions she sat her self at case with thought for her robe’s intact- ness uppermost, and spread its voluminous floun ces carefully to their natural amplitude. She cast her eyes at the conductor with an air of composure, sangfroid, and self-collectcdness. “Conductor,” sheasked,in the blandest of man ners anil most mellifluous of tones, "how many scats do I occupy I” Taken liy surprise, he glanced from one side io the other of her extended dress, and then at her.

The I’-aris Academy of Sciences hac again ad vertised its, prize, amounting to about $20,000. for the discovery of the cause and the effectual cure of the Cholera. This prize, remarks the Scientific American, is a bequest left some years since by M. Briant, and a competition liaa al ready taken place for it. without success. No less than one hundred and fifty-three essays were presented on the subject, hut only two of them came within the scope of the conditions. One was by the chief phvsician of Smolensko, Rus sia • the other by Dr. Ayre, of London. The firsCraaiiitaincd-tho identity of the virus of chol era ‘with that of small pox ami typhus, ami he proposed the inoculation of persons with the small pox virus while the cholera was raging. It was asserted, that by doing so, six out of every seven cholera patients would be cured. The London physician maintained that eight out of ten pers. .us could be cured liy administer ing doses of calomel at the rate of one grain for adults ’every five minutes, for the space of an hour. Neither of these proposed systems for curing cholera were accepted by the* Academy of Sciences. The ground was taken by its mem bers that a person, to be entitled to the prize, must discover a specific ad sure and certain for Hie cure of cholera as quinine is for intermit tent fever; also, that the remedy should be as efficient for causing the disappearance of this disease as vaccination has boon for virulent small tior. lv handsome; the serretti delicately fine; the flowers exquisitely arranged and mingled with oranges and lemons, in the Eeastem fashion, the slaves were standing round three or four deep, awaiting our slightest sign; we felt still more in the land of dreams. . First of all they placed to-cach guest a spark ling water liottle and glass. Then a fine china plate containing a flat roll of a kind of lye bread called seinect, quit* new anil warm, and coveff- cil with a small seed which not being a canary or linct, I object to. • Then soup was served—a great novelty in a harem; it was most excellent —chicken and vgrmieellf. Then came a dish of pilauC of chicken anti rice, done brown. I sat next to the chief wife, on her right hand; and’ as the slate held the disk she pointed out the nicest pieces, begging ntc to take them. The fair Circassian sat opposite to me. 1 was curi ous to see if they really scented to like the mod em innovation of knives and forks. For the hist few minutes they used thcm^-cvidcntly to do as we did; hut Circassian beauty failing to se cure the particular piece of chicken she coveted with a troublesome fork and spoon, threw those incompetent auxiliaries tlown. ami grubbed suc- eqsslutly, ami to her entire satisfaction, with her fingers. She then looked at me and laughed, and showed me how to take a piece of bread bo tween my fingers, begging us to eat a la Turque, winch they were all doing themselves, fast anil furious;. ami to-plcase them, we accordingly picked a few chicken lames with our fingers. * We liad all throe liecn enchanted with the fair Circassian, as I hare told you—with her beauty, her winning, yet lofty manners and exquisite grace; wc bad seen her smoke, and admired her still; wc had even forgiven her for loving the liarhannis noise in the "concert of music;” hut to see her lick her fingers'up to the last joint after each dish—to see her lick hcr'tortoise shell spoon bright, after successive and never-to-be- beh'eved enormous platefuls of sweet pancakes, (bulbed with honey, ami tart too 1 Use-ion.-, for the Knave of Hearts—this was too much for Venus herself to have done with impunity ;• wc were perfectly disenchanted long la-fore the feast was over. The rest were not so lad, (excepting Madame Liston, who might as well have had a trough at once;) but we began to feel rather sick after the first few dishes were despatched; ami the animal ]iassions of some of the Indies began to I* roused by their favorite sweets ami jellies which they tore to pieces with their fing ers. and threw down their Uiroats in large lumps. The jester waited at the tabic, presenting the principal dishes with jokes, which caused burst of laughter from the ladies and the slaves in at tendance, who seemed perfectly at home, and on very free and easy terms with their mistres ses, notwithstanding their complete submission to them. Tile jester was a wild and most ex traordinary looking-woman; witli an immensity of broad humor anti drollery in her face. Wo thought it quite as well that we could not under stand the jokes at which the fair Ciftassian l»o- tween the intervals of licking her fingers and s]ioon, and popping titbits on our plates, laugh ed so complacently, anti which sometimes obliged the Arabs ami eunuchs at the door to dive un der the aras to conceal their uncontrollable tits ol'mirtb. — * *- Mlarc Hunting Extraordinary. The Soutlixide (Va.) Democrat relates the fol lowing singular incident, which sounds like a new chapter in natural history: A few ilays since, as Mr. Charles Warner, of this city w as going a short distance in the coun try on foot, to visit a friend, lie observed a hare in’ tl.e road just h'evonu tiie bridge which cros ses Lieutcnant.Iiun, in the rear of the heights that appeared to lie listening and looking liack for something which pursued it He stood still, and hearing no dog. was curious to discover the cau«- of its alarm, when to his suprise, he dis covered the object of it to be a small brown ani mal which lie took to lie a weasel, and which hunted the footsteps of the hare with the utmost precision.
