The cotton supply at Lowell.

--The Lowell News says:

‘ The Merrimac Manufacturing Company, in this city, have now on hand in their storehouses about 5,000 bales of cotton, sufficient to run their entire machinery for six months. Cotton is now worth 23 cents, and the advance over what the company paid for their supply is upwards of $130,000. Cotton cloth is advancing in price, though not in proportion to cotton. Nearly all our cotton mills have a large supply of cotton on hand, which it is proposed to manufacture into cloth the coming winter.
