Foreign News and Gossip. Mr. Rarey's farewell to England --On Saturday, October 27th, the great American horse-tamer took final leave of his English friends at the Crystal Palace, at Sydenha
d amongst the lower crowed an exceedingly numerous and conspicuous sprinkling of . Orientals.
Mr. Rarey began with Cruiser, who is now a model of docility and patience.
Like Col.Crockett's squirrel ptoms is uncommon with horses at this season of the year.--Cruiser, who is now the property of Mr. Rarey, goes with him to America, to assist in disseminating the new philosophy of horse-taming.
Aft ge. This animal and another horse of fierce disposition were brought into subjection, and then Mr. Rarey delivered his farewell, in a few simple, manly words, full of friendly regrets and good feelin cted and brutal systems of training which at present caused cruel and needless suffering.
He (Mr. Rarey) was about leaving England, perhaps forever; but he should to his last moment retain a gratefu

Cotton is King. The New York Herald publishes an elaborate and comprehensive article on the future growth and supply of cotton, which shows that all the attempts hitherto made in India to rival the United States in its culture, have failed, that the intertropical regions of Africa and other countries, produce no better success, and that the only reliable cotton region to be found in the world, is found in the United States, Under these circumstances, the course of England is plain, notwithstanding the cavortings of the British press. The public sentiment of that tight little Island may be as refractory for a time as Cruiser, but the Rarey of the Gulf States will soon tame the ferocious quadruped, and with a string of cotton lend him placidly and soberly in the way in which he should go,

Runaway mule. --Yesterday morning a vicious mule, who had evidently never been under Rarey's influence, ran away near the Old Market, and afterwards up 17th street, where one of his attachments, in the shape of a country cart-wheel, rolled off, and against the person of a colored female, producing very serious consequences.

Taming Restless States. When Rarey was exhibiting his horse-taming powers in Washington lately, upon a young unbroken colt, and after he had thrown him on the floor of the stage, he said, " You will observe that the moment I touch his hind legs, this colt will kick. He will continue to kick until he finds that kicking does no good; then I can lie down between his legs with perfect impunity." "That's just the way it is going to be with the Border States and Lincoln," sang out a Southerner from one of the boxes. Whereat there was a general laugh.-- But the hit was too true for merriment. The people of Virginia, North Carolina and Tennessee are blooded stock, full of spirit, but they can easily be tamed with caresses and smooth, deceitful words.

Advice from Rarey. --In saddling a horse I proceed thus: I first show him the saddle.--If you pull him about or blind his eyes he thinks something is wrong, and of course resists. But accustom him to the saddle by placing it on and off severa
he foot in the stirrup and try to climb up, so that the horse is like a fly on a pane of glass — his weight on one side Mr. Rarey then proceeded to illustrate his method of mounting — standing-close to the horse and bearing his weight upon the horse ed him by loading him with sand, which the water made heavier.
No beating could have accomplished such a reformation.
Mr. Rarey then took a drum, showed it to the horse, explaining that horses only feared what they did not understand, as boys fearly feared what they did not understand, as boys feared false-faces in the dark, unless they know them to be pasteboard; and then, rattling the drum over the nervous-puller, concluded this part of his lecture amid hearty applause.--Rarey's Lectur
