Jf yon like it, read it; if yon don't like it, read it any Somebody, no matter who, thinks the eleventh chapter of Daniel applies to the present time, and predi9ts the triumph of the south; somebody else thinks it fore- tells success of the north. For my I don't believe either. I'll give my reason. There shall stand up three l-ings ver. 2. At the time of this prophecy, Cyrus the founder of the Per- sian empire, was reigning: The three kings" who succeeded him were Camby- ses his son Smerdis the Magian, who jiretended'td be his .son .but who .was not related to him in any way and Darius the son of Hystaspes, who married the The "fourth after Cyrus, was a. successor and son of Darius, and a man of exceeding richer than they and of whose means' Justin speaks in the most exalted Perhaps he was iuperior to Pythius the.Lydian.who was considered at that time the richest sub- ject in the world.

Talk about the reported two or three hnndred thousand in the south, and the five hnndred thous- and more or less in the northern or rath- er government army.

This verse applies to none so clearly as to Alexander, who was a mighty king and conqueror, and whose dominion ex- tended not only over Grecia, and over the Persian empire, but over Jndea in the bargain. He did according to his trill." Had he not an iron will Even his friends did not dare to-contradict or -oppose him with impunity. Clilns and Calisthenes did it, but it cost their lives. Bnt his kingdom did not stand ver. 4, chap. Till, it was according to ihe prophecy and the king died in Babylon, at the age thirty two years and eight months, having reigned just twelve years and eight months. And in abont fifteen years af- terward his family became extinct.chiefly tbrongh the influence of Cassander. I not trouble Editor, with an account of the treason and murder which led to the destruction of this young rn- ler's family. The history of Cassander his traitorous accomplices may give you that information. But yon will not forget that the kingdom of Alexander was broken and divided not to hit posterity but was plucked vp ci-rn for others bftidc 4. It was literally "divided toward the four of Four of h is ca pi sing prevailed over the loyal portion of the rtolm, and Calender reigtied in Greece and the LysJmachut in Thrace and the north; Ptolemy in Egypt and the and Sciences >r. Syria the ca.f.l. But Alexander's kingdom was divided into four parts, only two of them have a prominant place in the prophecy of the eleventh chapter of Daniel, viz: Egypt and Syria. These were the two leading empires of the four divisions of the kingdom and in view of their situation to Judea, their kings are of the south and north. This is the case throughout the chapter "And the king of the south shall be strong, and one of his princes (Alex- sJiall be strong above him (the king of ver. 5. Ptolemy had annexed Cypms.nnd many islands.cilies, and regions to Egypt, so that he had be- come very and was a terror to his enemies. Bnt the king of the-north or Selencus was "strong -above him for he annexed to of Syria (the north) the kingdoms of Macedon and Thrace, and had become master of three parts of the four divisions of Alex- ander's empire. He is the last successor of that yonng hero.and is called by some the conqneror of conquerors. And in the end of Oie years they shall join themselves together, for the king's daughter of the south shaJl come to the king of the north to make an agree- ment she shall not retain the power of the arm, neither shall he stand, nor his arm but she shall be given np.and they that brought her. and he that strengthened her in these times." Ter. 6. There were frequent wars between the kings of Egypt and those of Syria, par- ticularly between Ptolemy Philadelphns and Antiocns Thens. At the end of Uie or close of the war, they "joined themselves and agreed to make peace npon the condition that Antiocns should pnt away his former wife Laodice wilh her two sons, and marry Berenice.the daughter of Ptolemy. The king's daughter of the south shall come to the king of the north." The king's daughter did come to Antiocus Thens, accompanied by her father, the king of Egypt, and a large number ol female immense treasures as presents. Bui she shall not retain the power of the arm That is the protection of Antiocus. So it happened for she was sloin.and those that "brovgh her." Egyptian women who attendee slain with her. Now.Mr. Editor, is it not strange that anybody should suppose that the eleventh chapter of Daniel can refer to the present OCTOBBB. Child of the grand old Antnmn I October floateth hy, A regal grace on lier snn-kissed face And light in her IxHMning Over Irer polished gnonlders, To the dull and tiding grass, The golden brown of her hair flows down- As her springing footsteps pass. She will hreathe on the dim oMforest, And stainings of crimson light, Like theblnfihes that speak On her own bright cheek, Will fall on the leaves to-night; And the mellow light of the dawning, When the first faint sunbeams play, And the flushes that rest On the sunset's breast, She will leave on the trees to-day. She will tap at the coitage window. One tup withier finjpMS cold, And the fire will be bright Intb'eTiearth to-night, As it was in the nights of old And hearts will draw close together, In the light of the cherry flame, While fond lips will bless For their happiness The sound of October's name. Then she'll touch the tree tops softly, And a carpet all fresh and sweet, In colors as bright As the rainbow's light, Will fall at her fairy feet; Sometimes she woes the Summer By the light of her magic smile, Sometimes she calls At the frost-king's halls, And bids him reign awhile. Then when the hills are woven With many a tinted strand, When a vail of romance the bright cloud's dance J Is wrapped over sea and land, Like a dream that is wild with splendor, Like the snn at the close of day, Like the visions that rest In a maiden's breast, October will float away! What will Become of our Cotton f It is becoming more and more evident that England must have our cotton this year, or else suffer immense losses and run the risk of domestic broils. Snch a production as American cotton cannot be extemporized in one year, or in three years. It is the result of many genera- tions of Anglo-American thrift, enter- prise and energy. In its wonderful suc- cess are included conditions such as no other country can at once acquire a vast and elaborate network of rivers and lakes, affording the cheapest and most convenient transit, a fleet of capacious miles of railroads and plank roads, machinery invented or perfected by Yankee ingenuity, centres of exchange, a world-wide commerce in easy access, supplies of cheap clothing famished at the lowest price under the free trade of the states; and a climate possessing jnst that medium range be- tween great heat and-cold, dryness atid dampness, which suits the cotton plant. All these and other conditions of suc- cess, all the experience gained by the long cultivation, cannot be obtained in any country for a considerable period of time, and perhaps could never be fully acquired.

Too GOOD TO BK The following story is toM of Colonel Faror, and as the Colonel has told it himself, it must be true. A Pres- byterian clergyman, while walking HIP deck of a rleamcr at St. Johns, New Brunswick, here stecesslonism had considerable footing, noticing the American flag flying at the mMt- bead of a thip, tauntingly wid TO Colonol Faror- "Why don't yon take a slice off that flag, tinoe yon have lost a portion of jour country Yankee like, tlic Colonel quickly replied Why don't tear ft I'. if out of rnnr IHMe bocinw part of ronr church hit government commissions, and even pub lie subsidies, cannot bring together such advantages. They are, like our liberties and constitutions, the fruit of many years, ves, generations, of toil and experiment and strugglu. They are in part, too, the gifts of fortune. It is true'hat some of them are circumstances of weakness as well as of strength. A system of forced labor may favor large returns for a short period, but it is plainly wasteful and care- less, and must in the end impoverish both the people and the soil. It involves the fearful danger of insurrection, and in this case has drawn after it as a legitimate re- sult, the ambitions projects nnd nncon trolled passions which have caused this war. Still, in all onr onr struggle with the rebellion it must be borne in mind (hat cotton is really one of the sources of tha strength and wealth of America. If the forced labor by which it is produced were only changed into a system of serfdom or, better still, of free labor, cotton as well as corn w onld be felt to be one ol the richest benefactions of Providence to this continent. In fact, under freedom, there is reason to believe that after a time vastly greater profits would be de- rived from this production than have ever accrued to the country When we reflect on the vast interests at stake upon this single crop in Ameri- millions of property, and especi- ally the lives and happiness of so many hundreds of thousands of laboring peo- ple in Kngland and how momentous the question is, "What j union shall our cotton this year It is a question extremely difficult to answer, and we can only reply to it by considering various hypothetical cases that may occur. To our northern views it seems most probable that in the course of this autumn the government will ob- tain possession of one of the southern Mobile or New Orleans. If this occurs, what will happen next All the cotton which might chance to be in those ports at the time would of course get abroad to the world But this quan- tity would undoubtedly be very How would it be with the cotton in the interior on the plantations As onr lines extended into the back country, of course all the cotton would, like any other private property of the rebels, be liable to seizure and con6scation. This, as well as the stuck belonging to planters who were neutrals or Unionists, wonM at once find its way to market, inasmuch as adequate freighting ships would im- mediately enter the ports thus laid open. The popnlar impression is that this qnantity wonld be very considerable, and that the confiscated portion would far to indemnify the government for much of its expenditures in the war. We be- lieve this to be a crave mistake, gener- ated by our ignorance of tlie fact of the country at the South. To collect and confiscate cotton in ihe slates of Louis- ana Alabama wonld be like confiscating the apples or the potatoes of New York and Pennsylvania. The crop lies here and there, scattered over an immense country, np iiiacessible bayous, in the midst of forests nnd swamps at the head of winding or difficult rivers, on small plantations and largo two or three bales, tbrre fifty, and in another place a thousand. Some bales come a thonsnnd miles to New Orleans. It wonld reqnire a vast fleet of light draft vessels, an endless train of commissariat wagons, to collect this widely-scattered crop. Of course, on some of the well- known and accessible plantations ibis confiscation might be effected by our armies; bnt no Inrgc quantity to be ex- ported could be expected from that source. The next consideration wocld the planters of their own accord send the cotton down to the ports thus opened This would depend on a great variety that much can be smuggled oat. _ The risks are too great; onr blockade is too complete nnd even if such ventures were successful, no large amounts could be ex- ported. It needs a fleet of large vessels to carry away our ordinary cotton crop. For similar reason, no very great amount of this product can find its way overland to Mexico, though we shrewdly suspect this late "foreign intervention" has a strong bearing on its productive influence npon the Texmi'Cotton fields Such an export would be too perilous to produce great results. We can see no event which can brinj? ont our cotton crop for the benefit of tlie world but the entire success of this gov- ernment in suppressing the rebellion Even a forcing of the blockade by foreign powers would not tlo this. Such an act ,vould of course involve a maritime war between the North and those powers, in which our privateers wonld sweep every sen, and it would produce such a wide- spread exasperation here that the most desperate means would be resorted to to ircvcnt ths export of a single bale to breign ports. The supply of the world with cotton this year depending then npon the victo- ry of the Union, we see how short-sighted dead, and the supremacy of the Govern ment manifested. The "Peace" men of Maryland may their shouts are feeble now, and they will have an op- portunity before long to repent their cr- nrp and renew their allegiance to the established government of the United States from St. Lawrence to the Kio G rande. Clipper. lias been the policy of those nations, in teres'cd in onr staples, which have en- conrajred the ringleaders of the revolt. Two hopes alone sustained their wicked enterprise. First, that of the sympathy of a part of the North, nnd second, that of a ready foreign recognition. Bat they were speedily undeceived as to the sentiments of the North, and they ought to have bern as speedily undeceived as to the sentiments of foreign England and France from the outset should have frowned upon their chimeri- cal schemes. They should have told the ambitious chiefs, who were deluding the southern people, that their project was madness, and that Europe felt no sympa- thy in their aims. This chilling reproof would have extinguished their zaal. The present autumn wonld have seen the re bellion OM its last legs, and cotton wonlt havs gone forth, before the return of spring, to gladden the prospects of the European manufacturers and operatives. The Prospect. Oar Maryland Peace party appears to have been organized too late in the season. It was designed to bring npon Maryland the lot that has befallen Kentucky. The "peace" men tncky insisted upon the neutrality of that State in tke contest now waged between loyalty nnd treason. While all the great European powers', looking from an impar- tial stand point saw and recognised neressity of the raawtflinanfe of the of these States in its integ- rity, the "Peace" party in the border States was crying out for Their neutrality meant a refusal to ad- mit the forces of the government into their territory, and a suspension of the cxecn- tion of all the laws forbidding intercourse with rebels, while every possible material aid and comfort was given to the rebel forces. Thus Kentucky was made the great depot of supplies for the rebel army. From its grantries and storehouses filled to bursting with provisions nnd mn- uitions of war.nnder tlie neutrality dodge, Jeff Davis and Beanregnrd were drawing all their supplies for the vast army menacing the capital of the United States. The people of Kentucky had an op- portunity to speak, and nil this was sud- denly changed. They proclaimed their loyalty to the Union, elected a loyal Leg- islature, and the "Peace" party having been beaten nt the polls, brought into the State an army of rebels to compel the people to submit J.O their dictates. The "Peace'7 men of Maryland would do likewise here if they had the oppor- tunity. They would liring upon us war and all its attendant horrors, but fortun- ately for us the protecting arm of the Federal Governmsnt has been stretched out and they dare no', cannot execute their fiendish purposes. They have i made a nomination for Governor, bnt the proceedings of their pnrty are so fonl with treason that their nominee has not yet dared to accept the They begin to feel the premonitions of the storm that is ready to bnrst over the rebel States, and to tremble for the re- sult.

The prepara- tions of the Government will in a few days The Progress of Flax-Cotton. Several years ago there wai an effort made to develope the of flax to the purposes for which cotton is used. Machinery had been invented by which .he fibre could be converted in'o a mass resembling cotton, and it was claimed could be manufactured into stuffs, an- swering in point of lightness, cheapness, and durability, as a substitute for cloths made from cotton. The experiments tried were npon an we may add, expensive scale, and-gave assurance of a most gratifying success. Jnst at that time, however, the price of cotton was at its lowest six or seven cents per it was shown that flax cotton conld not be pro- duced for less than from eight to nine cents per ponnd. And it was owing to this cause entirely tbttt the manufacture of s'ufl's from this new material was not energetically prosecuted. Bnt now, when cotton is selling at from eighteen to twenty-two cents per pound, and for the last year or two having commanded a high price.the flax-cotton is and has been exciting considerable attention, and ar- rangements are making in several quar- ters, npon a large scale, to enter upon its manufacture. Several companies have already been organised and factories put in operation. In speaking of this move- ment and of its present and prospective results, the New York Evening Post, which has always evinced great interest in the subject, says "If King Cotton is not likely to be dethroned by his uncrowned rival, Flax, he is destined to get a severe poke in the ribs, which will make his seat We have seen several specimens of the new commodity come near- er to the genuine article than any that have yet fallen under our notice. They are to be seen at the office of Latson and Abbott, No. 149 Water street, where fabrics of the same material are to be in- spected. Flannel, calico, drilling and thread have all been made of the new flax fibre, and with a remarkable degree of perfection. New processes for pre- paring the fibre give great enconrage- ment to those who are embarked in the business. Mills for the manufacture have already been erected in New York and New England.and will soon be in opera- tion, not only working the flax by itself into fabricSjbut working it In connection with wool and cotton. American inge- nuity is about to succeed in a line in WHOLE to on the subject. Several of them were sounded, and either from want of sagacity, or enterprise, or of inclina- tion, they' declined io lend (heir assist- ance to the enterprise.

'If the clothing factory and warehouse) for the projected by far-seeing statesmanship, had been established 'in Richmond, abundant stocks of all sorts of material wotild have been found in store here at the opening of the war.and an organized system already in operation, capable of supplying all the wants of the Southern army. As it is, the Southern Government is, for the great part of the requisite material, at the tnercy of specn- must pay two prices for stocks of goods they might have found on hand in ihe public depository liere, paid for and without price. The same enliylitened and patriotic forecast which supplied arms to the South, would have accumulated here abundant svppli-ss of clothing material.

This force took up its line of march for the railroad, with the view of its total destruction, and then sad havoc was to be made with all the government forces in Northwest Missouri. Bat late' in the evening Alf. Joues, who had been released as a prisoner at the Arsenal, where he had taken the oath of allegiance to the United States government, re- turned from St. Louis to Lexington, and reported that the whole country below was alive with Fremont was after Price, and that Price might pre- pare for a big fight in a few days. This seemed to raise the courage of men, and they said, 'Let Fremont come 1' they were ready for him. Bnt when Jones announced that Fremont had 000 men, and his only fear was that Price j would not make a stand, the lattercoun- j termanded his orders for sending troops to the railroad, and a mtssenger was immediately despatched after those al- ready started, and they recrossed river on Sunday morning. "That night Price issned orders for a movement South, and General Rains, it is snid, went twenty miles that night on his southern route.and it is believed that Claib.
