THE STATE DEBT.
Pursuant to tbe rail, says the. New
York Herald of ihe 28th inst., about sixty
gentlemen met yesterday afternoon at No.
78 Broadway. Mr. William J. Best, the
receiver of. the Mechanics and -Traders"
Savings' Institution, was called t the
chair, stated the object of the meeting and
entered into a fall explanation of the dif
ferent classes indebtedness of the Stat
of North Carolina.
Resolutions were passed U the effect
that the new bonds would hear a rated in
terest of uot less than six per eent. per
annum, the coupons to be payable in New
York and Raleigh', and to be receivable
(or all Male taxes ana duea Another
resolution was passed pledging the bond
holders to accept a u!l settlement of their
present claims at fitly cents on the dollar of
the principal and interest.
If the State should agree to these terms
the funded debt, according to the state
ment of the Chairman, would be 10,701 ,
GJ8. To carry out the object of ihe
meeting, a committee of five persons were
appointed to visit North Carolina and
present the cae to the Governor and other
ofS-eia of the State.. The -committee
consists of Messrs. T. Banner, William
Lncimis, W. G. Shattuck.T. Fonlke, and
Edward Kevati, of IVterssurg, Va.; Mr.
Best was afterwards added to- the com
Tbe amount of bounds, including inter'
est, stated to be represented at the meet"
ng, was over 82,500,000, or about one-
eighth tbe entire recognized debt.
The bonds which jt is proposed to con
solidato are quoted to-day at about- Hi.
for the old 6 per cent, aud 8 for the new.
This proposed adjustment does not iu-
elude the bonds issued by the railways
and guaranteed by the State, which are
