--The Captain of Her Majesty's ship ‘"Hydra,"’ is reported to have said to Captain Allen, of West Baton Rouge, ‘"Sir, what do we care about the bloody nigger — we have got nothing to do with him; our Government wants cotton, and cotton we must have. Go ahead and fight your battles on land, England will take care of the seas, and, if necessary, would bridge the Atlantic with her ships in order to carry your cotton to Manchester."’
