Peruvian cotton.

--The New York Journal of Commerce says:

‘ Considerable interest has been manifested in this city within a few days in regard to an invoice of Peruvian cotton received via Panama. We understand that it is part of a shipment of 1,500 bales, most of which was consigned to Europe. The quality is very beautiful, and the samples shown would sell readily at 15 cents, even in the present state of the market. The plant from which it is taken is said to be a perennial shrub in Peru, indigenous to the soil, the growth of which already extends over a considerable tract of country, and needing only a little labor in the way of cultivation to yield large returns.
