About 16,000persoos were present, an 1 this number, at two francs a head, makes n very I irge amount for the manager. The festival wr-nt off in a very brilliant manner, and every part w < 1 received with the utmost applause. Splendid w? aiher favored the fitt; the temperature was as mild -is that of a spring day. The tournament produced a magnificent effect. It consisted of a great procession, composed of a hundred halbardiers, clothed iu garments of the time of Francois the 1st; six heralds, with trumpets and banners; two hundred archers, the half wearing a red uniform, the other, a green tabird. All these actors were on horseback. Then came the judges of the tournament, the princes, the ladies of the court, and, finally, sixteen knights covered with steel armor. .111 d having the lance in the band ; the procession wu terminated by a great number of pages In rtiort, the as|>ect of the assemblage was splenrti 1.

We recently aoticed the progress mi i | and making in ike l>h>tr?ar district, and also in 11? -1 ?if TtlHMTfllr Wr ali-tll now refer to the districts ia the province of Ctndeish. This, it may be r? collected, * m one of the aitra of the expertmenta bjr the Amencnn cotton pliatera, sent out to ' introduce the culture gf the New Orleana variety of cotton there. Meaefre. Nmi>?on and Blount were, lor a time, in the early period of the experiment, in tied in different puts of the district; hut their rowings, at hrat, were wuhont a successful reault 1 he reason of this f 11lure is now sufficiently underitcoil. Their Experiment* were conduc'ed in the southern parts of the province, in the open country, which, besid? a being bare of trees, have a dry, arid Nil| whereas noiatufa IS one ?.f the great i-ondi1 t:ons of fertility They determined, however, to | tee if they could send the native indigenoui cotton, ia a clean atate, to market; and ia this respect they i were remarkably successful. At Bombay, their I native clean cotton a< Id at higher prices than , the New Orleans cotton: simply from the circumstance that the llomoay merchant* did not know which wm the beat cotton, when both were put before thrm At the name time Mr. Mmpton exprraeed a strong conviction that the New (>rle*ns cottoa would succeed in other parta of the province nearer the hills, where thrre ia greater moisture in the soil. Th?se parta of the country have been tried, and the result haa proved bis anticipation* to be correct. The culture of American cotton there h*a been ateadily increasing, and, in the opinion of thoae who are in a position to judge, only a few more year* are re 1 quirra nrmijr 10 nmnupn inr cunmr vi ? vvhu* 1 in ?uch altee, in the <iietnct? of Caadeieh. In the \ tirat ntp of experiment there, and, Indeed, in all i dry localities, moiature is the great desideratum; | and when thia la not otherwise supplied, irrigation by ranal become* exceedingly desirable and important. A few yeara ag?r, there via scarcely any cotton cultivation in the Candeieh diet nets; but Mr Elpkineton, now the collector of that dietnct, sowed yearly a *U|>|>ly of American cotton seed, from Dnarwar, aa well aa a portion of that which was more recently tent oat from A rnenca aad hngland; and we arc glad to learn, by the latest advicee, that in npite of the seed from Dharwar not arriving till late in the aowmg time, and notwithatanding the natural reaulta of unpropitioua ae aeons, the Dhwarwar-American cotton need ia becoming acclimated in Candeiah, aad the annual increase in that province ia about urn time* the amoont of the previnna season.

Dharwar, h iuz between the two monaooaa of Bombay and Afadrta, enjoy iag both seasons of run, supply the reaaon why American aeed thrives better in thoae diatricta than elnewhere in India. The cli nate of Candeiah being rendered somewhat humid, by the vicinity of large tract* of jungle, the American aeed will gradually become acclimated to live there, by that law of mture which changea the habit of a plant in erder to adapt it to a n?*w oliniite. But in the dry Decc-tn, which hia scarcely any trees, except in ihoae parts of the States of Sattarah and (kilapore, which lie in the vicinity of the Syadree Ghauts, it will be difficult to'iutroduce the American cotton aeed, without irr^wtion It would be a great, indeed a double boon, it government would cause thia hire and arid district to be planted with trees; for I his would correct the excessive drynet# of the soil, aud would in time ?upnlv rimfwr fnr tK<* w^tifu nl fKn SVe learn from one private letter that a IJom'wy mercantile firm have estiihlished at l)hurutu**um, an anient belonging to their house, chiHly to buy cotton grown from 'American teed, and also the indigenous cotton, to ai lari{e an amount as he rirocure. The s^-ne hrm h ive arranged to take a urge supply of American tin* from the East Iudia Company's firtory, at Dhuruniiaum Ths ryots, too, are buying these gins, having speedily becone sensible ?f their great superiority over the native churka. It may, therefore, be fairly anticipated that Candeish will soon be in a position to supply a considerable quantity of Indian New Orleaus cotton, in clean snd good eouditi?n. The only drawback of any importance is that arising from the thin uopnlatinn of the (Met, the large proportion of fallow land, and the extensive jungle in some parts j these causes, to M?tne degree, retard the extension of the cotton cultivation. liy the latest advices, it is encouraging to letrn that the co-ton plants sown in the I'hurumgaum district of Candeish were lotiking very healthy. Those sown and irrigated before ihe rainy season were most luxuriant Mr Simpson is stated to have 2**0 beegas of land (about 67 acres) sown with Americsn cotton seed: the plints, by the latest advices, in a very healthy and prosperous state. It is impossible tw receive th'-se generally concurrent and exceedingly satisfactory accounts of the progress of the coiion culture, and especially of the New Orleans variety, in various parts ot India, without a conviction that if the efforts to promote its extension, on the part of the East India Company, be continued for another season or two, and the ryots be afforded that stimulus to extended planting which is given by a large and increasing demand, at fair prices, we may look ?re onif for a L-.rge snd rapidly increasing supply of cotton from InHiu nt thnf Lin<l and miitlifv r??/*?' uiii fa KU tn t k#? manufacturers here, "f hui, as greater experience of the habits of the American |>Unt in its new climate, and a more careful observation of the seasons, and especially of the beat time for sowing, are acquired and applied by the native growers, we shall see the foundation laid for the culiivation of a great staple product over vast regions of our Indian territory, which, while it largely benefits the people of those dependencies, and extends not only the agriculture but the commerce of India, will be of incalculable advantage to the great : staple manufacture of the United Kingdom.
