Where the Confederate Cotton Goes to.
--A late Liverpool
paper contains the following paragraph:
Within the last few days, there has been an unusual activity in the shipment of cotton to America
no fewer than three large screw steamers having sailed from Liverpool
, freighted almost entirely with the staple.
The regular New York steamers have taken out considerable quantities, but they have been unable to convey the quantity offered, and extra steamers have been called into existence to supply the demand for tonnage.
The Canard company lately dispatched their fine screw steamship Kedar
with cotton, and the human company are sending an extra steamer this week.
The shipments of cotton during the past and present week must have been very large, as the Kedar
alone took nearly three thousand bales.
