Receipts of cotton — stock at the South.

Charleston, December 25.
--The receipts of cotton at New Orleans and Mobile were rather heavier last week, those at Mobile showing an increase of five thousand bales over the preceding week.

The total stock in Southern ports is estimated to-day at three hundred thousand bales. The stock at this port is only eleven thousand two hundred and fifty bales, and the whole of it is now going on shipboard for Liverpool.

There are over thirty-five vessels at New Orleans and Mobile loading cotton, chiefly for foreign markets. The exports to Northern ports are falling off, some of the steamers not carrying a bale.
