Burning the cotton. --It is reported that the planters on the Mississippi, for twenty miles back from the river, have destroyed all their cotton, and that the planters on its tributaries, the Red, Arkansas, White, and St. Francis rivers, are following their patriotic example. The occupation of the Father of Waters, therefore, will bring the enemy but little profit. He has opened the greatest cotton port in the world, and yet he gets no cotton. This is not all, the people in the great valley of the Mississippi have planted very little cotton — cut little more than enough for their own domestic purposes.
