A recent estimate of tho cotton crop of 1870-71, as compared with realized crop of 18G9-70, though, perhaps, overstated, presents facts for serious reflection, when taken in connection with the report of the condition of the manufacturing business iv England, as given in a letter, undor date of December 23d, 1870, from a gentleman thoroughly acquainted "with tbe subject In all its bearings, who writes : "With respect to the cotton spinning and manufacturing trade, you havo an erroneous impression. Frco an early period of the civil war on your continent, that trade has been in a state of suffering, and there has been a frightful depreciation of mill property.

dwmug £tate gouMatJ TUESDAY EVENING, JAN. 17, 1171. SIM It IE Ol>' THK MORIIIIJU PRKB', The Enquirer is principally remarkable this morning for an improved appearance in its new and handsome dress. It begins to "set" better. Yesterday it was too much like a new Buit of store clothes, with all tho creases and fold-marks showing that they wero not made at Devlin's or Spenco's. It looks much better now, and the type used being all of large size it will become more popular with persons whose vision has been dimmed by age. Mr. H. L. Pelouze, tho enterprising type-founder of this city, we understand, furnished our neighbor's new outfit, and it speaks well for Richmond enterprise in that line. There is no need to go elsewhere for printing material, when it can be obtained on better terms at our own doors. The Enquirer hammers away at the I Legislature. It can't get over the chagrin of its defeat in tho consolidation war, and I ihe "gift," as it calls it, of nearly six millions o...

This gentlemao dislikes very much that his earnest discourses should be interrupted. He has t special aversion to dogs coming into his church, and the appearance of one of these animals always gird the excellent pastor tho fidgets until the intruder is driven out. On one occasion Mr. was delivering a very solemn discoursa to bis people, when a little terrier belonging to the Hon.

Suddenly, however, the dog came to a hole in tho* wall of the church, in which the scent of rat was quite fresh, and began to paw and scratch at It, and to squeal and yell at the top of his voice. This was too much for the good minister, and it knocked al...

Ono of the most interesting incidents of the ago, we are apprised by tho correspondents, occurred on the 18th of December last, at Versailles, that superb palace which Louis XIV. had erected at an almost boundless expense, wrung from the labor of an impoverished and misgoverned people. On that day the representatives of, united Germany waited upon King William, of Prussia, to offer him a Crotfu Imperial. Two centuries ago, (says a writer in tbe Philadelphia Press, who seems to bo thoroughly informed in German history.) when Jules Hardouin Mansard was constructing Versailles, and before he had constructed the water-works of Marly to supply its fountains, Prussia did not exist as a kingdom, for...

Tho latter paper, in replying to an article which appeared in the former yesterday, says that the position seems to be taken that thoso who still desire to be called Conservatives may • have an organization of their own, but have no right to prevent the Democrats from forming a party under tbat name, and co-operating with the national party, Tho plain meaning of which is, says the Dispatch, that those who agree with tho Enquirer, "possibly one-third of the Conservatives of Virginia, or one-fifth of the whole number of voters, shall proceed to organize a party of their own!—of courso with the certainty of defeat beforo them, or a determination to compel the twothirds to unito with them !"

The French simultaneously advanced against the Prat-tan Guards near Le Bourget and Drancy, Northeast of Paris; against the Eleventh German Corps, near Meudon, Southwest of Paris ; and against the Second Bavarian Oorpg, near Clamart, alao to the South of tho city. The fighting in .ach institneo was .pirited, but resulted everywhere in the defeat of the Freuch, who, repulsed srt all points, retreated rapidly within their works, a portion of them in great disorder.

THUKMUAY I.VENINO, JAN. 19, 1871. ■ I'llllT UF TIUS SHOtlltlCH* PUKBS. Tho Dispatch and Mnquirtr hold on with the tenacity of grim death to the oldfashioned, abusive style of political newsppper discussion, the strength of whie'l consisted, first, in making assertions, on- . flnpported by proof, and throwing the onus of proving them false upon your opponent ; and next in abuse, more abuse, and abuse all the time. The 'Dispatch adopts this sort of tactics this morning, in an editorial, in which it heaps a column of calumny on the Federal officers in Virginia, charging them with every •pecies of fraud and corruption, without •pecifying a single act, supported hy ovidunce, upon which its accusations are based. It is an easy thing to make assertions, but rather difficult sometimes to prove them. For our part, we never bring a charge, either general or special, without having good evidence to establish it. These genernl denunciations of officers, accusing them of fraud and corruption, wi...

It mattered nothing. Mr. Massey moved that a portrait of General Thomas be also put up in the capital, and the negroea of onnrse favored that. Massey's trick was merely partisan. He knew tbat it would not go down with the Senate, and he did not want it to go down.

That prosaic and coldly rational temper with which modern men are wont to regard natural phenomena was in early times unknown. We have come to regard all events as taking plnco regularly, in strict conformity to law ; whatever our official theories may be, wo instinctively take this view of things. But our primitive ancestors knew nothing about laws of nature, nothing about physical forces, nothing about tho relations of cause and effect, nothing about the necessary regularity of things. There was a time in the history of mankind when these things had never been inquired into, and when no generalizations about them had been framed, tested, or established. Thore was no conception of an order of nature, and therefore no distinct conception of a supernatural order of things. There was no belief in miracles as infractions of natural laws, but there was a ...
