The State Debt
The conference between a Committee of
oar Legislature and the holders of N. C,
State Bonds took place week before last at
the capitol in Raleigh. It was private or
at least only those holding bonds were ad
mitted to tne conterence.
The ReDOrt of the Chairman of th Com-
mittee will be found below :
Pursuant to the joint resolution of the two
Houses of the General Assembly, the "Joint
Select Committee on the State Debt and
Liabilities." met in the Senate Chamber at
12 M ., no the 14th of January, inst.. to con
fer with the creditors of the State, and re
mained in session during that and the two
Daring this bine, gentlemen were present
from New York, Virginia and North Caro
lina, representing in the aggregate about
two millions of the "old" and "funded in
terest' bonds, with less amount of "new"
and "special tax" bonds. Numerous let
ters, addressed to the Governor, the Chair
man aud members of the Committee, from
persons in various sections of the country
owners of different classes of bonds of this
State, were read and considered.
Several propositions were made by bond
holders looking to a settlement of the State
Debt. Those from North Carolina very
generally said that they had entire confidence
r a J a i . . 1 .
in tne juugmeut anu iairness oi tne legis
lature and would accept such terms as it
might propose. One of the Virginia gen
tlemen expressed his willingness to accept
any terms of settlement which might be
offered by this General Assembly. The
other Virgiuia creditors present, represent
ing over half a million of dollars of the
"old" bonds, aud professing to be able to
influence a very large amount of the entire
debt, proposed to surrender the "old" bonds
and the "funded interest" bonds with the
accumulated interest on them, and take in
lien thereof a new bond for the face of the
others, bearing 4 per cent, interest for
years and then 6 per cent, for the remainder
of the term.
The chief representative, for the New
York interest proposed that the ''old'
bonds, "funded interest" bonds and the
acquired interest on the same, be taken up
with a new bond at nfty cents in the dollar
That the "new' bonds, .not "special tax,'
be taken at thirty cents in a like bond, and
that the ''special tax" be discharged by the
same new bond at fifteen cents in the dollar.
He said, however, that he did not believe
the State was morally bound to pay any
portion of these "special tax" bouds. but
that iu order tit get rid of them would advise
such compromise as suggested.
Separate propositions were made in regard
to the settlement of the "construction"
bonds. One holder of half million of these

A writer in the National Live Stock
J our anal gives his idea on this subject :
Sheep pay better than any other stoek,
no matter what the kiud of stock is, I
have been feeding some 300 bead of cat
tle, and I am satisfied that, even with
the most favorable condition for selling,
when the time comes, I shall make a
great deal more money, dollar for dollar,
on the money invested in sheep than I
shall make ou the capital invested in cat'
1c. I have 600 sheep, running without
any particular attention or care, und have
sold St. 400 worth of wool this year s
cliu and have 2.00 lamb b .-sides. I do
not think it posible to have done so well
on an equal amount of capital invented in
ca'tle.' Oue great advantage cheep have
over other stock is, they never die
of the contagious diseases whii-h they
contract. They get the scab or foot-rot or
something else, and if unchecked it get
them in bad condition, and would ultima
tely, perhaps, kill them. But the very
woiot contagious disease to which sheep
are subject, give the owner ample time to
treat the affected animals, and tbe dis
eases are generally of a character which
yield readily to treatment. But a man
may have a lot of hogs, and feed them
lrindreds of bushels of corn daily, and
about the time the bottoms ot his cribs
are neared and he is thinking of selling,
some disease breaks out among them no
one knows what it is or what to do for
it one animal after another following in
rapid succession is affected, and the great
er portion die. 1 have knowu farmers to
be well-nigh ruined by the appearance of
contagious disease ot this character.
Sbeep are happily exempt Irom such rapid
and fearful mortality. B -sides wheu a
sheep dies and they will die sometimes
his pelt is sufficient to pay for his keep
from the last shearing to his death. It
makes no difference when he dies, or what
kills him. the sheep never dies in debt.

Jocksalism as a UusiXRSS. In com
menting on the failure of a newspaper
manager, the St. Lauis Globe tells a plain
truth in the following words: Tbe busi
ness of journalism will continue to be an
inviting field for experiments to those who
have a large amount of egotism. A man
who, having edited a newspaper Qutil be
was forty, should suddenly announce him
self a lawyer, would be regarded as a fool
by tbe legal profession ; and yet we
often hear of lawyers of forty making
sudden pretensions to journalism. There
is an idea that tbe basines of editing
requires no appreutitefhip : that editors er
come forth Irom law offices and colleges
fully armed for the profession, like Pallas
from tbe brow of Jove. It is a mistake ;
there is not in America to-day, a single
journalist of national reputation, who has
not devoted more time and more hard
work to his profession than, with equal
fitnes snd application, would have made
him a good lawyer or a good doctor. And
yet ninety oat of a hundred men yon
meet on the street will hesitate about
carrying a hod or making a pair of shoes;
whereas, there will probably not be one
in the hundred, whs can't according to bis
own judgement, edit any newspaper ia
tbe country better than it is edited, no
1 matter bow or by whom.
