peculiar to Sir E. Lytton Bulwer. Jno. Mitchell--a brilliant but erratic genius — solves the difficulty in a late letter to the Charleston Mercury, in his own way. He says China produces, even now, six times as much cotton as all the cotton States of the Union put together. Three hundred millions of persons are clothed in the Nankeen which is made of it. The article is not of the finest kind, but very good, and there is no doubt that the finest kind can be grown in the enormous alluvial vallies of the Hoan-Ho and Yang-tae-Kiang as abundantly as in the vallies of the Mississippi and Alabama. Hence, he says, the war with China. Once in possession of these Territories, the markets of Liverpool and Manchester will be closed to American cotton. Labor is so cheap in China that five Chinese can be supported on what would not feed one negro. This is Mr. Mitchell's mode of settling the Chinese difficulty. We have seen no other solution that implied continued occupation by the English.
