the breaking out of the war Mr. Henry Holze, of
Mobile, was sent to Loudon to manufacture letters
and articles for insertions in the English and
French papers to give their governments favorable
coloring to Confederate transactions.
Mr. Holze became so intimate with the British
Consul that they mutually pledged themselves to
aid the cause of the Confederacy to the utmost of
their power. Thenceforth the British consulate
became the chief rendezvous for the Southern
otates. The captains of blockade runners also
went to Mr. Crawford, the British Consul, as the
truest depository of current port signals, which

Cotton—The market opened this morning with
a continued good inquiry, and although the weather
was rainy and unfavorable, and the movement was
moreover checked by there being only a limited
and poor supply on sale, as well as by factors be-
ing still more stringent in'their pretensions, yet

brokers, at prices showin "

but the above appear to us to approximate more
nearly to the actual sales. At the same time many
factors are unwilling to meet the demand at the
ruling rates and either ask higher or have covered
up their samples. A revision of Saturday's busi-
ness swells the amount to 3763 bales, or 263 more
than wo reported. The advance since Friday is

TO PLANTEES AND LAND HOLDERS:
The change that has taken place in the labor aystem
in this Atate, it is presumed, will lead to a iarge im-
migration from the Northern states °nd from Europe,
early in the spring of 1866. Many of the large farms
and plantations, heretofore cultivated with slave la-
bor, may be offered for sale or lease in moderate 6? ed
The owners of these lands, and of unimproved
lauds, will find it to their advantage, to have the at-
tention of immigrants directed to such lands as may
suit their purposes.
AUG. BUTTLAR, Real Estate Agent, at Gal-
veston, -vill give bis particular attention to this mat-
ter, and persons wiKhing to sail, or ¡ease iands to im-
migrants, will do,well to forwarr. to lnm a (nil descrip-
