The calculator all agree that the coining cotton crop is to be a short one, and, besides, that the demand 1 will be increased about a half mil lion bales. Add this to the thort age, already chargeable against the last crop, aud the deficit is swelled to tnoro than one and a half million bales. The question arises; why has not the great staple advanced in Taluc, and among all the reasons ad vauced none appear so plausible as these: When speculation on the short age of the American grain crop had forced prices higher than the Eng lish were willing to pay, the lorcign consumers sought a supply else where. They bought their wheat from California, Australia and lu dia, where the yield had been more abuudaut and the producers wcro willing to sell at reasonable prices 80, also, it is on Iho -shortage in American cottou, the English buy era replying that they will draw npou tbelr stock ou baud and obtain a...
