idan in the Valley: Old Jubal Early, or as General Lee calls him, his "had old man," has won a name during his sojourn in the Valley of Virginia of which he is well worthy. Did you ever see him? If not, you have missed one of the greatest curiosities of the war.--He is a man of considerable corporality, with a full face, which has the appearance of the full moon when it is at its height in redness. He is about six feet high, and of immense structure. His voice sounds like a cracked Chinese fiddle, and comes from his mouth somewhat on the style of a hard-shell Baptist, with a long drawl, accompanied with an interpolation of oaths. In the winter his head is encased in a net striped woolen skull cap, drawn down over his ears, while his body is contained within the embraces of a Virginia cloth overcoat, striking his heels. His legs are covered by leggins of the same material, wrapped from the feet upwards as high as the knees with white tape. He is as brave as he is homely, an

The entire increase in the production of cotton, interior in quality as it is, in other countries under the influence of high prices, has not been equal to more than 500,000 American bales; while it cultivation had gone on uninterruptedly in the Confederacy, the natural augmentation in the yield at former quotations would this season have reached 1,500,000 bales. India and China are cotton-manufacturing as well as cotton-growing countries, and hence they, like England, had on hand, in addition to their heavy stocks of goods, a large surplus of the raw material, which they have been induced to part with in consequence of its extreme value. Prices have already touched the highest rates ever known. To be sure, some New Orleans middling cotton sold at Liverpool during the last war with the American States, in 1814, at 39d. but that quotation was in paper money, when

The Scriptures tell us not to do evil that good may come of it. It often happens that when wicked men do evil that ceil (not good) may come of it, Providence takes the matter in its own hands and evolves good from the intended evil. The cereal, sorghum, was introduced into this country from China with the design to destroy the value of one of the industrial pursuits of the South. It was supposed by those who introduced it, and recommended its cultivation, that it would entirely supplant the sugar-cane of Louisiana, and thereby render the cultivation of sugar unprofitable, and slavery a burden. Philosopher Greeley, the humane and Christian gentleman, who thinks all the white inhabitants of the South should be murdered, that the negroes may enjoy their inheritance, was the great promoter of the sorghum scheme. The Tribune was so full of it for several months that room could be scarcely found for anything else. It was to be planted everywhere, for it would grow everywhere
nce this Chicago plan must fall, it has no back or second. [Cheers and laughter.] When negotiation and all the arts of statesmanship are exhausted, the navy would be scattered, withdrawn from the blockade, and the armies dispersed in their homes — the treasury empty — the national credit sunk — France and Great Britain will have recognised the rebels, and even our steadfast friend, the Emperor of Russia, [cheers] together with the Sultan of Turkey, the Pasha of Egypt and the Emperor of China, will have given over, with pain and mortification, the friendly nation that, in a pusillanimous hour, delivered itself to self- destruction. [Cheers.] Fellow-citizens, you are all free and independent as I am, and you may, and must, decide the question for yourselves. I cannot decide it for you, nor shall you decide it for me.
