substantially. Whenever nor credit shall
be so much improved at home and abroad
that holders of om bonds are disposed to
retain them, even v. In u the public mind is
excited upon financial subjects, we shall
be able to judge more accurately the ex
tent of the overissue of paper money. It
is also true 1 lint tin: quantity of currency

thus practically the coin will be increased

These changes w II tnid to diminish tho
difference between paper and coin.
The ability of the country t resume
specie payments will not be due to any
special legislation dpon that subject, but
to the condition of its industries and to its
fiuancial relations to other countries.
These, of course, wilt he more or less de
pendent upon the general policy of tin
Government. The war exhausted the
country ol its material weal'h, and the
Slates of the Sou h were literally impov
erished. A necessary condition for the
resumption of specie payments was the
development of the industry of he nation
both South and Notth,aud tliecoiisequenl
accumulation of the movable products of
industry to such an extent that our ex
ports of those pi o.i nets should be equal
substantially to our imports. . So long as
it is necessary to pay for merchandise im

bonds or other evidences of indebtedness
to other countries, so long it will be im

Our coarse, it seems to me, Is pliin, -Every
measure of tbe Government bearing
upon the subject should tend to appreciate
the value of onr paper currency. It is
probable that some decrease in the volume
of paper will ultimately bo necessary, and
1 therefore respect fully suggest lb. a the
Secretary ef the Treasury be clothed with
sutlmiiiy to reduce the circulation of Uui
tsd States notes in an amount not exceed

isens of i he United States to such tax up
on income fioui the bonds as ia ituosi'd
by the laws of the United Stales upon
income derived from other money invest-
I incuts. '
There arc two reasons, and each seems
to me to be n controlling reason, why the
boiide of the United Stales, should be ex
empt from Slate aud local taxes. If not
so exempt, the amount of the taxes impos
i ed by the local atilhoritie will be added
to the interest the (nveriiinent will be re
quired to 1 ay. and thus the National Gov
eminent will he compelled to provide for
taxes imposed by the local suthorities.
Secondly, inasmuch as the ability lo
borrow money may, under seme circum
stances, be essential to the preservation
of the Government, the power should not,
even iu times of peaee and prosperity, be
qualified by any concession tn the States
of ihe l icjit to tax ihe means by which
llit: Niitioiiui Government is maintained.
The right to ue its lawful powers free of
any condition, restriction, or claim of an
other, is an essential condition of sover
eignly, and the National Government
is maintained. The right to use its law
ful powers free of any condition, restric
tion, or claim of another, ia an essential
condition of sovereignty, and the Nation
al (lover.. mem Should never surrenderor
qualify its powers in this particular. -..
There are t wo evils in the present bank
iug system which require remedy by
prompt and efficient legislation. The first
is ihe practice on the part of banks, of al-
lowing interest upon deposits. The ef-
feci of this practice is that moneys in tin
hands nf individuals winch otherwise
might be loaned for regular mercantile aud
other business purposes arc diverted into
1 In- custody of banks upon he idea that if
iin- security is not better, payment cau be
obtained at a iiwrnbui's notice.
Country banks and others remote from
the large centres of trade, having receiv
ed money 011 deposit for which they pay
interest, are unuotts to tranfer such funds 1
to other banks, trout winch they will re
ceive a 11 equal or larger interest in re
turn. They are stimulated also by the
desire to place their funds where they cati
be at all limes commanded. Thus influ
enced, large sums are placed on deposit
with banks in tho cities especially in the
city of New York, which is trie great ecu-
tre of trade and finance for the Atlantic ,
co,wt- B!uf ''. c"r8e M i
ot ."otintrjr tends rapidly to
' ho ci tics, and it is unwise to stimulate

" tmutieT J rt,CM1
i it tin- evil does uoi euu witn the
ioi erisliineut of the country. As
a . - t 1 1 'i t
Links in the cities may be called upon at I
any moment to respond to the drafts of j
their depositors,! hey decline to make loans I
representing such funds upon commercial i
paper payable on tune, but insist upon
making call loans, as they are termed,
with Government bonds or other obliga-
lous pledged . s collateral security. Mer
chants generally wtH not "borrow money
iu large sums payable 011 demand. The
ainseqneuce is that tlie mrmcys thus ac
cumulated iu the city banks are loaned lo
persons engaged tn speculative put mum.
The extent ofllits evil is seen iu the
fact, that, of the bunk loans iu the city nf 1
New York in October, 1868, $98,000,000 1
upon commercial paper and (io,
000,000 upon demand, with a pledge ot
collaterals ; and in 9ctber, 18G9. $99,
OOO 000 were opon commercial paper and
$,o,000,000 upon demand. In the for
mer year 4 1 per cenL and in the latter
year 37 p-r cent, of the loans made by
the New York batiks were upon demand
A further resnlt is teen in the fact that
parlies borrowing money upon commer
cial paper for legitimate commercial pur
poses pty from iiii-u lo six per certf. ad
ditional interest per amum as cotupan d j
with persons who b rrow monejrfbr spec

recommei:d that a law be passed pruhili
I11 g absolutely the patysaent of Inlaws! by

their loans unoii collateral to an amount
I am satisfied, also, that the practice of
certifying check, even when funds are in
the bank to the credit nf tha drawer of
the check, is fraught with evil, and that it
ought to bo entirely prohibited.

THE SOU l'H'8 POWEB.
In tho course of a remarkable speech by
Hon. Mark A Cooper, before an immense
concourse of people in the amphitheatre
of the Georgia ute Fair at Macon, on
the 15th just., he stated that the cotton
ererp of Georgia alone, to be 500 000 bales
averaging 400 pounds each. The value
of this, per hundred pounds, in paper car-
rem v ol toe I nit til Mate.-, after paying
freights and charges to Ltverpitol from
N. York, il .-old iu Liverpool, ia $28,
4. For this the New York shipper
pays iu New York $21i, thus leavin ? for
iiiin a balance of -? 84 for his profits.
A bale of 500 pounds, therefore, affords
him a profit of 14 22: The crop from
Georgia of 500,000 bales, when thus sold,
will theretore afford to the New York ship
per an aggregatt profit of 87,800,000.
The cotton crop of the South is sup
posed to be about 3,000,000 bales. Two
million bales shipped as above and sold in
Liverpool, afford to the New York ship
per a benefit of $28,840,000. This is
the result of one crop, it is wonderfnl,
therefore, that with this to build on, New
lorn .-iiouiii oe a great city, winch ecu
tralized power to make aud coutrol the
policy of a nation ?
Again, cotton in the process of mann-
facturinc loses 15 per cent., or 15 pounds
in each IU0 - equal to 75 iiounds per bale
This amounts to 7,500 bales in a crop of
500,000, or neatly one bale 111 six, winch,
if v-iiTuci! at 20 cents a bale, is equal tu
The planter looses this. He also loses
the freight he pays on this waste.
The freight fi om New l'ork to Liver
pool alone is 25 eeuta per 100 lbs., which
is equal perbale to $175. The freight
from New York to Liverpool on 500,000
bales made iu Georgia, if shipped from
New York to Liverpool, is $875,000.
The raw cotton, when manufactured in
to varus suited to the foreign markets,
diminishes the bulk 15 per cent., and
therefore saves about one-sixth of this
freight, which-is equal to $135,833 saved
in freight on waste from a crop of 500,
000 bales. The manufacturing of the
raw mat. rial at home saves also the waste
of 15 per cant, and turns it to domestic
Manufacturing at borne for the foreign
markets adds two-thirds to the value of
the bulk. Hence, one hale of cotton thus
manufactured is worth three of tbe raw
cotton, say equal to $300.
The crop of 500,000 bales manufac
tured in Georgia, less fifteen per cent,
waste, is 525,000 bales manufactured pro
ducts, eqttal to $300 per bale, which is
equal 10 the aggregate sum of $137,500,- j
This, then, stand against the sum
of $50,000,000, the value
! bales sold in the raw state.
There is, therefore, a balance in favor
! of the country of $87,500,000, produced
by converting the raw cotton into a rami-
ufactiired article. Add to this tho sum
of SI 15,000 paid 011 the waste when ship
ped .mil saved by mautifacturing at home.
Add also the value of the waste saved and
used at home, by estimate 8100,000, and
you have tho -11111 of 87,745,00 made and
saved to the country by manufacturing
the raw material. Hence it is perceived
that you return to the producers the value
of their raw material, as in case of sale
auil Blitptnent and nearly double that sum
to the iu and llieir country, in proceeds of
sale of mimttfircrnrcd good. Tbt. omes

XO IX l l A II,
Workmen are engaged in leveling a
large mound on the block lying between
North and South Temple streets, and
Third and Fourth West streets, for the
En i pose of preparing the ground for the
full Central railroad, and in their labors
they have exhumed many reliees which
are interesting to archaeologist. Ofiicer
H. Y. Hampton broagh a gnnnr-saek tulle
of bones, fragment of pottery, flint arrow
heads, pieces of sulphur, and a species of
brick to our office this morning, which
had just been dag up by tha men engaged
iu levelling the ground. A long row of
fireplaces were discovered yesterday; two
or three more were found ta-day, aud the
bones which he brought were those of a
skeleton, which was found in a sitting
posture, with its diiu resting on iu breast,
near otio of the fire-places. The mound
which was a very large one for ibis coun
try, seem lo have been formed by the re
mains of the dead ; scarcely a shovelful
cati be moved without disturbing bones.
How long a poriod has elapsed since they
were buried i difficult to determine, but
we should judge that many generations
have passed away since the formation of
the mound. All the small bones and sof
ter portions of the large bones have disao-
j peared, and no vestige of hair has been
discovered thus far. Wo do not know
whether the general average of the bones

saw was that of a large man. Officer
Hamp'.on measures six feet two and a
half inches, aud the thigh bone was lar
ger than his. One of the arm bones and
one of the leg bones bort marks of having
been fractured. The skull was tolo ably
large, resembling in shape the usual In
dian type, and the teeth, were all sound,
and were those of a young man.

The ancient Egyptians, at their general
festivals and parties of pleasure, always
had a coffin placed on the table, at meals,
containing a mummy or a skeleton of
painted wood, which Herodotus tells us
was tireseuted to each of the guests with
tins admonition ; "Look
upon line, and
enjoy yourself, for such will you become
when divested of your mortal garb " This
custom is frequently alluded to by Hor
ace and C'uttullns, and Petrouious tells us
that at the celebrated banquet of TrimaU
cion a silver skeleton was placed on tho
table to awaken iu the minds of the guests
the remembrance of deaih aud of deceas-
' cd friends.
In Carasou,.a province to tht northeast
of Tarfary, the inhabitants have a custom,
says Dr. I ley lei . when a stranger ot band

not out of desire of spoil, or to eat hia
body, but that the soul of such a satuoiy
prison might remain among them-
