MONEY.
NO. 1.
The QBual definition of money is a
medium of exchange. Some Bay it
ie the universal equivalent. Of the
abstract natnre ot money we should
hare but little to say, leaving that
part of the strbj ct for consideration
at another time. It may be well to
state at the outset what the essential
qualities of good money are. These
qualities have not been determined
by resolutions of conventions or fiats
of governments, but by the stern
necessities and demands of trade and
commerce. They are the following :
Utility and value; portability; inde
stnctibility; homogeneity; divisibili
ty; stability of yalue, and cogniza
bility. That a medium of exchange
e'lould have utility and value arises
from the fact that it is contrary to
the natnre of men to exchange
something for nothing. There is no
sentiment in trade, nothing bnt the
cPujuiyalent will satisfy it? de
mands. If a farmer has a bushel of
corn which he dors not want or need,
he is willing to part with it on the
condition that tome person will give
him sonetbing for it. He seeks
not a person who only wants corn,
but a person who wants the corn and
has something of value to give for it.
The something of value must not be
anything of value, but something
that he wants, otherwise he will no:
give the corn for it. If every farmer,
or for that matter, every person, who
hud anything to exchange had to
find a person who wanted what he
had, and had something to exchange
which he wanted, it is evident that
a great difficulty would be experienc
ed oftentimes in making exchanges.
Hence the necessity of a universal
eAWalent, a something that every
body is willing to take in exchange
for what he has to dispute of. Tbia
universal equivalent is called mocey.
Let ub agree for the present that
money shall have utility and value,
and proceed to examine of what use
it is that it should be portable, that
is, easily carried, handled, counted,
concealed, and-so-forth. To fix the
attention let uo euppose that a choice
is to be made between two metals
to be used as money, ana that the
commercial value of the one is 16
times the commercial value of the
other, that is to use a favorite ex
pression the yalue ratio of the two
metals is 16 to 1. A pound of the
one metal is worth sixteen pounds of
the other. If we make t he monej
unit one dollar, th?n a dollar
of the inferior metal will weigh
sixteen times as much as a dollar of
the superior, or one dollar of the
baser metal will weih as much as
- ' Bixteen dollars of the finer. It the
"$baser metal be made into dollars and
the finer made also into dollars, then
a thousand dollars of the baser
metal will weigh sixteen times as
much as a thousand dollars of the
finer. If a thousand dollars of the
finer weigh thre and three-fourths
pounds then a thousand dollars of
the baser will weigh sixty pmnds.
Two thousand dollars of the finer
will weigh 6even and one-half
pounds, tr.il two thousand dollars of
the baser will wei,h one hundred
and twenty pounds. If a person
had a two thousand dollar deb to
pay he would have to carry either
seven end one-half pounds of the
. fiuer, or one humired and twenty
pounds of the baser metal, In th
former case he could put the monej
ia his pockets, mount his horse ant
go to make the pivuient. In tht
Utter c ee some mea .s of ti importa
tion would have to be found, eithe'
a buggy or one-horse wagon, or
pack mule. If a farmer had sold
"tn baits of cotton at thirty dol ar
perbal' and received his pay in tli.
baser metal he would have jus:
eighte n pounds of money to carry.
The reader can form some idea of
what carrying that weight of money
Bignilies, if he will put a four pound
weight iu his right breeches pocket,
a four pound weight in his left
breeches pocket, a four pound w ight
in.' hi right coat pocket, a four
- pound weight in his lef . coat pockc,
a ou pound weight iu his right vest
pocket and a one pounu weight in
his left yett pocket, ticking four
times four pounds with two )ound
moreroreiebteen pouud all told"
Loaded "down with BuclT a" weight
might be very agreeable in a high
wind, but for purposes of ordinary
locmoti n, the load would no doubt
be considered a burden. If a mer
chaht purchased one hundred bales
Tf cotton at thirty dallar i per bale,
. three thousand dollars or one hun'
dred and eighty pound a of the baser
metal would have to be used in mak
ing payment..' If forty, customers
paid him daring the day fifty dollars
each, he wtnld rec.ive two thousand
dollars or one hundred and twenty
pounds of money, twenty pounds
heavier than a keg of nails. Under
such circumstances he would have
to keep on hand a financial wheels
barrow to convey his money o tre
bank, for sa re deposit. In case he
received his two thousand dollars iu
the finer mefal he would have only
seven and a half pounds to carry and
cou'.d in that case very conveniently
dispense with the wheelbarrrow.
Now suppose ail the pieces of
money weie of the s&me weight. In
that case each piece of the laser
metal would be counted one dollar,
whilst each piece of the finer metal
would be counted sixteen times as
much, or sixteen dollars. One hun
dred pieces of the finer metal would
be equal in yalue to sixteen hundred
pieces of the baser metal. One man
could count sixteen hundred dollars
made of the finer metal in the same
time that sixteen men counting, at
equal rate, could count sixteen hun
dred dollars made of the baser metal.
One hundred million piec.s of the
finer metal would be equivalent to
sixteen hundred million pieces of the
baser metal. It wou'd require the
same labor to count and handle six
hundred million pieces of the baser
metal as it would to count and han
dle six hundred million pieces of
the finer metal, but the value of the
six hun 'red million pieces of baser
metal wou'd ht only) six hundred
million doHxrs, whilst the value of
the six hundred million pieces of
the finer metal would be nine bil
lion six hundred dollars. The pieces
being of equal weigh , to keep
600,000,000 dollars in circulation, if
the baser metal be ch. sen the people
must handle 9,600,000 ponnds, the
pieces beidg rated at 60 pounds to
the thousand ; but if the finer metal
be used then orly 600,000 pounds,
the pieces being rated at three and
three-quarter pounds to the ttous-
ud, making a difference of weight
to be handled amounting to 9,000,
000 pounds.
A yery imxortant matter to con
sider in this . onnection is found in
the fact that the cost of handling
the 9,000,000 pounds must be paid
for, and like all taxes the pay must
come out of the productions of the
counir. , out of the products oi
labor. A country may have a very
costly monetary system as veil as a
very costly system of taxation, The
labor incident to handling and mov
ing money must be pail for just as
certainly as the labor incident to
the handling and inov.ng ma
chinery.
But another feature of this ques
tion defences notice. The finer metal
may be less suitable for small divis
ions of piec?s than the baser. Sup
pose that half-dollarj, quarter-dol
lars and ten cent pieces should be
wanted, then the baser metal would
uo doubt serve the purpose better
than the fiuer. A piece of money
may be too email, just as another
piece may be t- o heavy. A twenty
dollar piece of the baser metal would
weigh over a pound, which would to
doubt be vcrj- inconvenient for so
small u amount of money. A dol
lar piece of the finer ruetul would be
too small, and of course a half-dollar
piece and pieces of lower denomi
nations would be still smaller. They
would le too easilj lost, and would
require tedious handling. In mak
ing the selections then of the metals,
the finer meial would no doubt be
cb03t n for the muking of large pay-
mints, whilst the baser would bt
chosen for the payment of small
mms What ttie j.mit enousa De
or.Ul bi drtermmtd by the demands
of tra-le and commerce. The object
would be to tecure the most active
employment of the larger sums in
order that the ci culation of tht
in.ill sums might be the more rapid.
The monetary system of a country
is a compiex whole, each part de
pending more or less for its life and
ctivity upon the life and activity
in 'he other parts. Stagnation, how
ever, in the centies of activity art
further reaching and more damaging
ibau affections iu the oher parts.

SEVEN YEAES IN ALBANY.
Holland's Sentence Wa Merciful on
Account of Maladies Which M Ik
Shorten Ills Says.
James R Holland, ex-cashier of
the Merchants' and Farmers' Na
tional Jbank, of Charlotte, was
Thursday arraigned in the Federal
Court. He submitted to the indict
ment of embezzlement and was sens
tenced to seven years in Albany
penitentiary without hard laboi.
Messrs Jones and Tilletfc, his
counsel, made eloqhent appeals for
mercy, and District Attorney K B
Glenn made the speech of his life.
The yerdict of the court is as the
people anticipated.
Holland bore up bravely under
the scatching denunciations of the
district attorney. He will be taken
to Albany the first of next week.
He was not giyen the full limit of
the law from the fact that Dr. Joe
Graham testified that he was affected
with s dangerous malady and that
such a term of confinement would,
in all probability, cause the prison
er's death.

Women Lawyers.
The cumber of women in this
country who are studying law is
much larger than most people would
suppose. Tue8Jay the university
of New York sent out ten women
graduates from its law department,
the largest class of the kind ever
graduated in the world.
Some sf these young women made
very fine records in their legal
studies. Some of them, we are told,
are born lawyers and would make
their mark at any bar in the coun
try.
But the bar is not to receive the
benefit of all this array of genius,
Three of these graduates admit that
they are engaged to be married and
sever"1 of the others are under sus
pick., on that Bcore.
It is not known positively that
any of the Iten will engage in the
practice of the law, though nearly
all of them are remarkably well
qualified for doing so.
How a man wonld feel with a law
yer for a wife we cannot imagine,
bat a great many men need legal ad
advice frequently on their earthly
pilgrimage. We haye no doubt that
some of theBe women lawyers will
make excellent wives, and if they
should all get good husbands they
would be far more fortunate than
if they should win fame and for
tune in the courts or on the bench

So it goes.
Manufactoring intenets increase
daily.
Now that contracts are out for the
erection of two new mills, one for
the Odell Monnfactnring Company
and o .e for Meesis J M and W R

will certainly be one of the largest
manufacturing centres in the South.
And ye, that is not all.
There ia a probability that the
Cannon Manufacturing Company
may increase their plant at an early
day, and the rumor is funndtd on
pretty good authority. If the ad
dition materializes, it will amount to
an increase ot about 5,000 spindles
and 125 looms, which will y'-' em
ployment to several hundred opera
tives, and will necessitate the con
Btruction of about twenty or mere
tenement houses.
The adlition will be buit, it is un

Verily, the progress of Concord is
not behind a vile. We will yet
boast of a city.
