There has been as yet no evidence of any evil cousecuence* arising from the issue of privateering commissions by the Mexican government. It is doubted if any have yet been disposed of bv the Mexican agent at Havana, although ha boasts of haviDg already sold five.? Oenoral O'Uonuell has declared his determination to puDish with death any Spanish subject found takn g advantage of those commissions. The tiulf squadron have been, for some time past, edgaged in hauussing tho coast of Mexico, and will continue to harruss it trom thia time forward. Several exploits have been performed wo;thy of the palmiest days of our navy. Among others is mentioned the burning of a Mexican schooner under the walls of San Juan d'Ulloa. This feat was performed by three midshipmen belonging to one of our vessels. Sevan Mexicans, on board the schooner at the time, were captured, put into the boat, and brought off, the schooner being lired af'er one unsuccessful attempt. The affair was brilliant and entirely successful. The additional volunteer force colled out from Pennsylvauia. New York. New Jersev. Massachusetts and Virginia, could have beeu trebled il' requisite. Such I waa the ardour o( the voluuteera ill enrolling themaelvea , thatalaige number huve been refuted, and everyday , commandera of companies are arriving in Washington ] in the now vain hope that their ragemeaa may iuduce the Secretary of War to accept theni. A bill haa been introduced to-day in the Houae of f>epreieiitntivra, providing for the organization of an additional force ol ten regimenta ol regular troops. It haa : tieeu referred to the committe of the whole Houae. The affairs of K.urope engroaa a good deal of the atten- I tiou ot out government, notwithstanding the more immediate pleasure of the Mexican war. The impteaaiou prevail! here, that Kugland aud franco will not autf r the confiscation of Cracow without some effort to enforce an observance of the treaty of Vienna. It ia thought, however, that the Northern powers must have calculated with a strong degree of confidence on the breach between franco and Kngland before they would have I attempted ao bold a step. It ia stuted, on reliable authority, that, should franco and Kngland consent to supply ' money nr.d munitions of war, eight hundred thousahd I Poles could be mustered in three months, to strike for the liberty of Poland; and that no otiier j>ower need interfere, I except passively, in gi?ing aid and encouragement. The flores exjMtdition is scarcely thought of at present. The recent news from Krvi- nd seems to settle ! the question of the total failuie of that absurd schemo. Tho Consular system presented to Congress by the j Secretary ol State, has received unqualified approbation ' from all quarters. A bill is now being framed in accordance a 1th the features of this plan, and there is every j aeaton to suppose it will puss into a law the present session. I A portion oftlio wings have spoken in < uugiess in op- i position to the war, but others nave indignantly denied 'hat the sentiments of the party are averse to the war. i In tho Senate Mr. John M. ( iayton, a tScnatorfrom l)ela- j Wdi o, has taken ocrasiou to Bay, that the charge of opposition to the war made against the whig* it entirely uiv founded. Mr Joseph K.

It is not that tho southern steamer ol last evening brought us the sad intelligence of the loss of the United States brig Somers, of the Gulf squadron, and a third of her complement of men; it is not that we have heard of the loss of that eminent speaker end brave soldier, General Thomas L. Homer, in Mexi co; it is not that the gloomy report from the city of the Angels is not yet satisfactorily contiadictcd; it is not that deeds of assai-siiiation of Americans and Mexicans are nightly committed along the line of our army, from MaWtnoras to ftultillo?these are sufficient causes of melancholy redaction, bat tliey ure not the causes of the deep gloom pervading both houses of Congress to-day. The cause lies nearer and closer to every member of tils national assembly. It is the sudden death of the Hon. ' Alexander Barrow, at Baltimore, a Senator fiom l.onis:ana, whose remains are now iu this city. Since the dreadful disaster on the Trinceton, nerr Mount Vernon, 1 no circumstance of death has fallen with such a shock upon tire as sembled representatives of the )>ecple. A large auditory of citiseua and stranger*, of both sexes, ?t en.lcd in the galleries of the two houses to-day, spectators of the solemn proceedings, and sympathizers in 1 tho general sorrow that prevailed. Iu the ttonu'e, after a beautiful and affecting prayer by the Rev. Mr. Slicer, the Vice I'resident called tho body to order, end the reading of the journal being dispensed with, Mr. Johnson, of La., the colleague of Mr. Bartow, Mated the circumstances of the last sickness, and the end nf the deceased, fallowed hv n brief ohituarv rem pitulation, with an appropriate eulogium upon tho eminently meritorious char acter of the deceased. Mr. lienton xesuined it by a reference to bit acquaintance, from e. boy, with the late .Senator Mr. Bree.-n followed Col.

"1 Know him, and 1 loved him wolf Then pointing to the vacant chair neat to Mr. Crittenden, he said: " Yon vacant chair tells, too truly, that we shall meat him here no more." How gratelul the testimony ol these three last eminent men to the virtues of an associate so uuc jmpiomhingly distinct id his jKilitical principles Mr. Crittenden next arose, by the vacant chair at his side.

TWJCNTY-N1NTII COYCJHKSS. SECOND SESSION. Ill Menalr. Washmcitox, Wednesday, Dec. 30, Ikfti llright and beautiful day without?tad and sorrowful day in the Senate. (Jalleriet tilled with ladiet and gentlemen, a large proportion stranger*, and oil deeply sympathizing in tne solemn occasion. After an humble and contrite prayer from the Rev. Mr. Slicer,the Chaplain af the Senate, On motion of Mr. Huntington, the reading of the Journal wae dispensed with ; when Mr. Johssos, of Louisiana, rose and addressed the Senate as followsMr. President: Louisiana has to mourn the loss of another of her distinguished sons. It is with unfeigned sorrow I announce to the Senate the death of my late friend and colleague, the Hon. Alv.xaxDEB Utnn"u, who died at Baltimore yosterday rooming at a o'clock, after a short and violent attaok of illness, which would not yield to the best medical skill. All the relief tluit modical science and skill could accomplish was applied in vain He left this city on th '24th instant, on a short visit to Baltimore, apparently in peifect health, mill I only heard of his illness the day he lore his death. Indeed, so sudden and unexpected was the shock produced by the annunciation of the sad event yesterday, that 1 cannot yot hardly realize the fact, and do not feol sumcietiuy composed to do justice to the memory of the deceased in the tew remark* I proposo to muko. 1 he deep anxiety felt here,not only by the member* of both home* of Congress, bnt by all classes of the community, whan hi* dunyerous situation became known through the tele- 1 graph ii now dispelled by the melancholy gloom spread 1 over the whole city. It ii indeed but too true that Alexin- 1 der Barrow,the pure patriot an l enlightened statesman, is no moiti. Threo years have not passe I away since Mr. Barrow announced inappropriate and eloquent terms tho , { death of his late distinguished colleague; and since than it | has devolved on me to present the ordinary resolutions as j 1 u mark of respect to the memory of two ol my colleagues I of the oilier House of Congress, and a similar resolution ! will now be ollered on this melancholy occasion. In 1mm than three years two .senators and two llepresenta- | lives in ( ongrrga liom the same State have been gathered to their fathers. The death of my late colleague was the most unexpected; lor he was not only ia the vigor ol ! life, but he possessed a strong constitution The ways I ?r i.i i ?v,i. i. :.u I lie said,that "whilst in life we are in death." Of Mr. Harrow's eai ly hiRtory 1 know hut little. He wan a native of Tennessee, and wan, 1 am told, about lorty-iive year* of age. His family and connexions are of tho highest respectability, and have been long distinguished for their talents and patriotism. After having completed his education, Mr Harrow studied law, and was admitted to the bur in Tennessee; immediately after which, I believe,he removed to l.ouisi.ma, where ho pursnod his profession fur some time with success; and, had hn remained at the bar, would have attained the highest distinction. Being 'independent in his circumstances, and fond ef agricul tural pursuits, alter ufow year's practice he retired from the bar and became a successful planter, aud has since devoted his attention mainly to the cultivation of tlio earth Mr Barrow served, however, repeatedly in the Legislature of Louisiana, with reputation, and was regardod as a distinguished member ; and he received from the people of the State many other proofs ol their highest respect and confidence. His election to the Senate of the 1 uited States, uudcr circumstances the most ilatteriug, is the best evidence of the high intimation in which he w as held hy the people of liis adopted State, by whom his character and services will over he held in grateful remembrance. The news of bis death will produce tliroocbout tho state, as it lias produced hero, the deeu p?t <Mno*iojt: ol sorrow. Vir h mow was distinguished lor hi* bland and c >urtoeu* manners, for hi* frank ami manly deportment, anil for his many generous and nohlo trait* of character. No man, in Met, had more sincere and devoted friends whilst living, amino one has died more lamented lie performed bis duties nere with /.eat and ability, and, at the same time, in tbo molt l'rurik and conciliatory spirit ; and I am sure that it is no exaggeration *o say tbut, in his iutcrcourac with his brother beautors, his deportment on all occasions was such as to comnuind the msjiect and confidence of every member of this body, lie has now closed his earthly career, but he has gone, 1 hope, to a hotter and happier world Although he expired lur from his home, and from the cherish I partner ofdiis bosom, it must be u source of some consolation to her, and to her orphan children, to loarn that he was surrounded at that awful moment by devoted friends, from whom he received every attention which friendship could bestow, and that lie died a.- he had lived, without fear and without reproach, relying i upon the mercy of hi* Redeemer. And what shall be said of their bereavement ? There is a silence which is inure expiessive than language. We forbear, in humble submission to the will of Heaven?in grateful recollection that " He who strikes has power to heal." The character of the deceased,was indeed, sir, of the highest order As u Senator, a citizen, and a gentleman?indeed, iu all the relations of public and private life, he wus esteemed ndbeloved. As b patriot, a firm and uncompromising ti ienil of hi* country and of her constitution, he had no superior, lliavc, ardent, and chivalrous in his temperament. and devoted to the uiincinlos of civil and rcliiri- : ous libel ty, had he lived '? the da} a of the early struggles for English freedom, ho would have bled by the slue of HampJen in the iiilJ, or died with Sidney on the scaf- j fold, t et, sir? Jfl.a life waa gentle, And the elements so mixed in him, '1 hat nature might Maud up And isy to all tue world, ' thii waa a Max.' " Mr. Ilr.vTo.x next took the floor, impelled from a aenie ! of duty, and an hereditary friendship. Korty years ago, j when coming t<> the bar at Nashville, he hail enjoyed the 1 friendship ot the father of the deceaied, a highly re- ; spected and esteemed citizen The deceased was then a boy, mid after pursuits bad separated him, and for the first time to know each other, he md Mr. Barrow had ; met on this floor. They ha 1 met not asatiotigers, but as j friends?friends from early and hereditary recollections, nod all their intercourse since bad served but to strength- ! en thoso impressions. Mr. Benton then passed into a nobio tribute to the memory of tiio deceased, and of his many shining qualities of head and heait. Mr. Bbrksk, moved by the general sentiment, next 1 spoke. He told how he had really become acquainted with the deceased, end what pleasure be had derived i irom it. He had met him at Niagara at the close of the lonr easion of 18 id. and thev hud vovscred thence somo day* together, homeward hound, over the great lakes. It , wa* ill the friendly intercourse of fellow travellers that , the shining qualities of the character cf the deceased had i been developed, 'l'licy had met as mere acquaintances; they MMUMM as last friend*. .Mr Uiense then feelingly I adverted to the shock which the Senate had sustained in I the lor.'i of the deceased; and of the pride which his presence, his manners, and his good qualities had inspired and secured him. He was one who could look around ' and say, I have not a personal enemy. I Mr. IUs.sn;**, tho warm-hearted and generous Ilanorgan, could not resist tho grateful, though saddening inspiration. The tears from the eyes of Senators and citizens flowed the more Ireely lis he spoke. Seldom have we heard a more beautiful tribute. Hut a day or two since, to him itseeincd only an hour, the derenscd was . [ here, beloved and respected by us in all, the pride of bis j 1 his intellect?in all tho loyalty of his manly health - Where whs there a more manly form?where u nobler presence -where couM we look to tlnd a loftier apirit? j a nobler lieait?a nature more generous ami gentle, than { I his 1 None, uono-there is none ' He knew no acta of deception-dissimulation, with its baleful train, were all, 1 all stranger* to him How swoetly wore the elements of humanity mingled in him ! Hi* heart was . aver open to pity?his hand wss over open I to charity. But he is now no more. Bar, row? Barrow?with hia [ennobling virtue* and his manly presenee, is to be with us here no moro. Von vacant I chair ^pointing to the vacant placo next to Mr. CrittenI den] too truly and too sadly tells that he is to be with us : here no more. I knew bim well?I knew him well; and I loved hiin dearly. Mr. llannegan (hen spoke of the widowed partner of the deceased iu l.oulsiana, and her children ; and expressed the l>0|>e that her grief and affliction might be softened in the general grief and respect, and in the evidences of this day in these halls. In the last moments of his hie the deceased had spoken of his dear wife and his children j nnd Mr. II. said n# would never target how his eyes brightened when he spoke of them. But, slut!? " Mot wlie not ohildren mote. Nor friends shall he bvhold, Nor sacred home." Mr. Csittkisosi* next arose, and the deep silence became oppressive, at all eysa wera turned toward him.? "Mr. ('resident, 1 alio would submit a few bumble w ords," and then ha paused?the strong man was subdued. " 1 beg pardon,"?and he sank into bis chair.

Mr. Starkwkathkr, (unfolding a newspaper )?I am : made to say, in the U"iono( last night, that "1 do not know whether the officer has any responsibility." [The allusion is to Col Baker, at whose instance, on Monday, a resolution was passed to iurnish clothing to the volun- , tears at the government cost, to be distributed and ac- j counted for by the office! s of the regiments ] i said, on i the contrary, that the probability was that the gentleman had responsibility. I did not ssy the gentleman was not | to be trusted. 1 said that no doubt, having received triple pay, ho has the ability to make good any loss. I merely hinted at the matter yesterday. I will now explain i more fully. The gentleman has Just received for 1 travelling expenses, $1 vdl, as a member of Congress, | fid as compensation and per diem pay?making $1,313; ! and I wish the reporter* to note it The gentle- | man was responsible for another reaeon: he drew, down to last night, for hie stationery ?

[Laughter.] He is more responsible than other officer*, j 1 lor they have not the same privileges and advantages. ' But in addition to the stationery already mentioned,there i is one portfolio, (to carry cartridge* in, I suppose, to use , against the enemy,) ana a paper tolder, (to smooth his leather with.) There are also wafers and seating wax, j nni-1 u Lnifa l\ sin Tint lnnn; what kin/1 iiArhuna a hntvia. knife ) Nor in thin nil. It is three thousand miles to ' Monterey?some say three thousand Ave hundred. Krom ' Monterey to this city and back, seven thousand miles. | i The pay, per mile, to a bearer of despatches, is ten cents; $700. is it possible the gentleman has no responsibility I [ V voice I think so."J The whole amount received is over I do not wish to misrepresent any gentle- t man, gallant er uogalhnt. 1 have written to General < Towson, to know when the pay of the gentleman as a Colonel commenced 1 wish it to be distinctly un- ( lerstood that Colonel Baker is a responsible man. [ Laugh- J *r] { thit clothing fob the volunteers ' Mr. Haralson, from the Committee on Military Af- j, fairs, to whom the resolution submitted by Mr. Baker on Monday was referred, (the vote on ite passage having t been reconsidered lor that purpose, on the motion of Mr. E starkweather,) reported back the same, with an amendment, so as to cause the quarter master to deliver . -Ull.ln. ?? 1 l?.?rnn.n.,l In lh, unlnnl.nnn Ikn ' amount to be deducted from tbeir pay.

The question was on seconding the demand for the previens question. $o quorum voted; and the } eas and nays were taken to ascertain whether there should be a call of the House. col. mai n's ukkesck. At ttds stage of the proceedings Col. Baker came into the hall, lie took oil' his military undress coat, and slipped on an overcoat, which he borrowed from the back of a friend, lie proceeded to his seat, and as i soon as the Speaker announced that a call of the House was refused, Mr. Bakkh said : i ask to make a few rematks. The SrKAmcu.?The gentleman usks leave to make a |Kusonal explanation. I.V pause ] No objection. Mr. Bakick ?1 was not in the hall yesterday nor to-day when the gentleman from Ohio (Mr Starkweather.) made his remarks with reference to me. I have heard, however, something of thasn. and I desire to say one or two tilings. 1 do not pretend to be very well .versed in constitutional law, as to privileges of members of this House. In coming to take my seat torn few days, and then to return, it was sufficient for me that gentlemen who wrote their namas in blood on the batUefisld had done tbo name thing 1 refer to the hero of the Thames, or ouo of the heroes, Col. Johnson. [A voice Old Tecumseh."] In addition, gentlemen elected to legislatures were, at the request of their constituents, doing just the sumo thing. The Lieutenant (Jovernor of Illinois (Colonel Moore) has left his regiment, and at the last dates had taken his scat as the presiding olticer of t'nu Senate ot that State. On account of the stuta ot his health, he was justified in going home. In my own regimeut the Major is a Seuutor, and nobody over dreamed of his resigning his seat i do not < Ikla I,... a nnnatitlltinnol ur,,?m,hl I ( may say, in addition to the precedent as authoii y for my | coming here, the commissioned officers of my regiment inado of mo a request in wilting, and desired me, if I could, to take my seat for six or eight days. Ou the morning I left, alter commanding the regiment six mouths, as I was ordered here by General Taylor, and thinking that I ought not to leave without their consent, I ottered my resignation, if they des red it ; but, (aud 1 am happy and proud to say) with scarce a dissenting voice they gave me leav.' ol absence, on my pledge that I would return before they see the enemy in the field. It is not pleasant to have my private circumstances made known; but I should he very unwilling to be represented as doing what my iinmediute constituents are not willing for mo to do. When I can justify myself in my district ana in my regiment, I do not care what gentlemen may say Net having heard what the gentleman from Ohio said, I will not further itllude to his remarks. This it not the time to mukc explanations ou the subject When I offered the resolution; to supply the volunteers with clothing, I stated, as 1 do now, that it was drawn up by the Secretary of Wat; I proposed that the colonel should I ike a new responsibility. I linve received six or eight hundred muskets, camp equipage, he., as an officer ol the 8rmy. Kvery captain of a company of seventy or a hundred men has clothing put into his hands, for supplies. I proposed the mode designated in the resolution, because it was the more prompt, direct, and immediate way. Among my constituents, many would go my so- I curity in an instaat. if the Senate pass the resolution j tc-niorrow, tour or five regiments will be supplied with 1 I clothing on my return, which will add to their appear- i nnce, it not enhance ttioir gallantry in the field. It I do ' what lawyers say, '"set myself right in Court,-' 1 will be satisfied. At IMPORTANT iNQl-mV?IS THK COI.OSR1. KXTITLF.D T# 1 HIS SKAT I Mr. Achkmik arose.

It concerned the independence of the legislative department of the government. The SrKAXKR stated that it hal been ascertained that 1 no quotum was present.

By reference to report per Caledonia, on the 16th inst, it will be rhserved that we had just cloied an active week'* business at a steady daily increase in prices, and that the supply on the market was much i educed, and held at very high rates. After the departure 01 the packet, a disposition to operate still continuing, prices hardened up, towards the latter part of the week, and a tirade

over our extreme quotations were readily realized for large and desirable shipp.'ng parcels. About half-past 3 o'clock on Friday afternoon, 18th inst.. we received, per express, the Cambria's accounts fiom Liverpool to 4th inst. The advance on the other side of full three-eighths or a penny per lb. was unexpected at (his date, anu censuquently created a great excitement with buyers?about 1,000 bales waro sold that afternoon at one-quarter cent advance on the currency of the morning. The next day, there waa but little cotton brought out at that rate, all of which was taken, and the salos reached 6.000 b les, closing up at a full half cent udvance. On Monday, about 3,000 bales more were disposed of Bt full prices, but without auy further improvement. On Tuesday, the sales were about 1,600 bales. On Wednesday 1,000 bales. Ou Thursday there was but little business done. Friday being Christmas, there was of course a cessation to all business. Ou Saturday, there was no attempt to enter into negotiations. .Monday of this week was inclement and foggy, and the oll'orings of bul lets reduced simply to a few struggling parcels, which they would sell to bring accounts of specific shipments to a close, ami these have generally been obtained at less rates than larger quantities could be had at. Ou Tuesday, the sales were 1,000 bales; yesterday about 600 bales. We revise our quotatiens by advancing them one half of a cent tor s similar classification, which we continue as strict as at the opening of the season, although a less strict one is sominginto vogue; and with tho remark that at our inrid* quotations, buyers for large parcols are easily procured' The movements in this staple in this country, this seaion, compared with the previous, have been as annexed : Bain Receipt* at port* or the U. 8. aioce Sept 1, 1846.. 084,033 " " " " ?ame period last year 804,110 " " " " " year before 710,827 Kxports from U. 8. since Sept. 1, 1846 230 381 " " " " same period last year 360.216 " " " " " year before 403,17-4 The receipts at this port since the 1st inst. hare been 18,000 bales.

Cotton Market. Moun t, Dec. 73 ?Navigation on our rivers may now >e considered as fairly opened, though our market has lardly felt its influence as yet, except as it is alt'ected by lownward freights. As a natural consequence, cotton, :orn,and other products of the country begin to come in feely. As our market is well stocked at present, we may xpect business soon to take a fresh impulse, and the ividences of thrift and prosperity to stand out in every lepurtment of trade. It may not be amiss to state that he reduction in the rates of freight between this city md New Orleans has materially lessened the prices of Western products of all kinds, as will be seen on referwee to our quotation* below. Supplies may now be purchased as lew, telatively, in this market, a* in any >ther in the country. The weather during the week has leen generally favorable to the transaction of business. During the first four days of our commercial week the activity noticed in our last report continued in this marret. During that time prices improved fully >^c., and in lome instances uioro. The daily sales have been sstimated ui follows :?Wednesday 2,000, Thursday t.MIO, Friday '.1,600, and Saturday 4,000 bales. On bis day holders, toward* the close of business hours, gardened up in their pretensions to such an extent as to :beck operations?asking 0} cent* for low class midlings. In some few instances 0!4c were obtained. On Vlonday, factor* still adbeting io their claims, buyers itood aloof, and only some 400 to 600 bales changed lands, and these generally at the current prices of Friday ivoning and Satutday morning. Yesterday holders generally manifested a willingness to meet the views of layers, but there was very little done, the sales last ivcniog only counting up some 700 bales. This makes in aggregate for the week oi about 13 700 bales. The principal transactions have beeii for Krance, an 1 other :ontinental market*, and for Great Britain?and gome on lomeutic account. It should be noted that the high rate* >f freight have checked operation* to a considerable extent during the entire week. The market close* quiet. We suhjoiu the quotation* current ou Saturday morning, remaiking thataome factors are asking higher rates, and refuse to aell except at an advance on these figure*. It ihould also be remarked that the market i* comparatively hare ol ordinary and lorv clais cottons, consequently the figures are nearly nominal Tor these qualities.

The deficiency of oolton at this port, a* compared with the receipt* of last year at this time i* 41,747 bale*, in relation to the crop of tho country it seem* to be pretty generally conceded that the estimates for the Gulf >orts will be scarcely realized. Many careful observers ;ot down the receipts at New Orleans at 700.000 bales, md the opinion is gaining ground that 314,000 bales at ;hia port is a large estimato. Should these views be es. :ahli*hed tho crop of the country cannot exceed 1,640,000 Pales,unless the receipts at tho Atlantic iiorts shall exceed ,t .i .? .c.. I u onU ? KI,.K is thought to be improbable. It is important to observe that the falling oft' in the receipts is in the Gulf pmts, whore the overage weight of bales is largely mor.-, probably 100 lbs more than the average in the Atlantic Sta'c*, where the increase is expected. Nkw Oai.cA.is, Dec. I'-t.?Our circular of the 4th iast, transmitted by the steamer Caledonia, left the cotton market in a heavy and drooning state, it having been unfavorably afl'.-cted by the Kuropenn advices per Acadia, and also by increasing stocks, advancing freights, and declining exchanges. Subsequently, the market continuing dull, a further dec'ine ot an , per ?eut was submitted to, which had the effect of bringing forward more buyers, among which were some two or threo new operators, and the sales for the week ended on Friday evening the llthinst., (including those of the 4th,) amounted to 19,600 bales, the market, at the close, having recovered nearly all that it had lost in the early part ot the week, notwithstanding low exchauges and n further advance in freights, and holders generally indifferent about selling, except at an advance, until in possession of the later Kuropean accounts expected by the Caledonia. These accounts were considered due about Saturday, the l'.'th, hut the mail of that day came through without bringing any intelligence ot the steamer, and a quiet day ensued, the sales being restricted to about lAOli bales, at full prices. On Sunday and Monday the mail failed from beyond Charleston, but during the latter day there was again a more active enquiry for cotton, and the sales reached some 6600 bales, at prices which, having gradually stiffened, exhibited an improvement of about an of a cent upon the rates of tiie previous veek. UU l uesaay. llie ioiu Milium, me until o?n through, bringing the full accounts per Caledonia, and little or nothing was done in the cany part of the day, parties being generally engaged in examining their correspondence. but subsequently a fair enquiry was experienced, and sales wcro effected to the extent of '>60(1 balos, previous prices bein|{ fully maintained, notwithstanding that the foreign advices did not appear to be oi a character to give assistance to tho market. yesterday there wae a good enquiry, hut the limited amouut of cot' ton ottering, and the very firm position of holders, prevented the husinese reaching any important extent, and we could only learn of sales of about -3600 bale*, the market cloiing with great (iimness at our quotations, which will he found below. Tho sales eince the 3d instant suit up 4'3,0oo bales, taken principally for Koglaud and the North, with some | parcels for the French and othei Continental matkets, and the receipts duilng the same period have been 47,370 bales, vix?From Lou <iana and Mississippi 33,500, North Alabama and Ten nbsaee 11,040, Arkansas 30S1, Mobile 133, Texas 9.?
