' Speech cf Cc2.Jc!ia:Pnol.
The General Appropriation , Bill, be
ing under consideration In the Senate
the following amendment was offered :
The branch mint at Charlotte, North
Carolina, shall bo abolished on the 30th
day of Jane, 1872; and the Secretary
of the Treasury Is hereby authorised
. to sell the said mint and all tho public
property connected therewith, at pub
lic auction, gi ving reasonable notice of
said sale. ' ' , .
In opposition to this amendment,
Mk. Pool, addressed tho Senate as fol
low8 . X ,
I hopetliat amendment will not be
agreedto by the Senate. Thero Is a
necessity for this assay office in North
Carolina. Perhaps at the present time
there may be no very great necessity
for it, but it Is perfectly certain that
before very Ung there will be. Previ
" ousto the war this was a mint, and
there was a very considerable amount
' of coinage done at that mint.- Since
the war, the mining operations in
North Carolina, as all other industrial
pursuits, have been languishing; and
from the fact that no great amount of
work has been done aL that, cstablish-
- ment since the close of the vrar," there
have been several efforts to abolish it
altogether. In the first place it was
discontinued as a mint and made an
assay office. To that, we matle no ob
jection. Now a -proposition comes to
abolish it altogether and have no assay
office there. I really hope the Senate
will not agree to this amendment; The
mining operations in North Carolina
are beginning to Increase in import
ance. There have been recent devel
opments which have created very con
siderable excitement ln jmrts of the
State, ana also in parts of Tennessee,
Georgia, and South Carolina. -
The buildings when .they were first
erected cost a great deal, and .the ma
chinery was put in at considerable cost
. to the Government; and if they are
sold now it will be at a very great sac
rifice. . I do not hesitate to say that
perhaps in the next eighteen months
or two years there will De apparent a
verv ereat necessity for an assay office
At that noint. '.
Mr. IIii,i Before the vote is taken
on this nr e titbit ion I wish to remark
that there is no assay office in Georgia,
none in Tennessee, none in Aiaoama,
none in South Carolina, and none in
North Carolina, except the one at Char-r
lotte. which it Is now proposed to arxi
ih. It is very .wel I known that a great
railroad is In, process of construction,
and will be completed during the pres
ent year, mainly w at least, running
from Charlotte, North Carolina, to AtT
lanta, Georgia. This road traverses
'the great mountain region of that coun
try ; it is a gokl region, which, for the
- first time will have been developed to
the world. Mankind will become ac
quainted .with it Iron and Its gold and
everything that makes it a rich mineral
' This being th only remaining -assay
office in all them? iSmihern States, it is
important to retain it in view of the
fact, which is known to some of us,
that miners who have been in Califor
nia and the other Western States and
Territories for years past are turning
their attention to Georgia and North
Carolina in thf? region. I myself have
ileum vi'ry iiisiinuisiitv lutuua ocij
that these fivlds of enterprise are more
inviting to-day than any other mines
on the 'v-cntinent. Large outlays of
money art' being made in my own
Stateandin North Carolina. Prepar
ations are. beiiiir made for resuming
mining. It is hr. rill y fair to take the
present condition of minlngasan index
of the future. WV nre to presume that
something like the prosperity which
preceded the war will be resumed in
minin?as well as in agricultural pur
suits and othr businesses in theSouth.
I hope that this !ut means of affording
facilities to t he miners of that region
will not be taken away from us, and
. that something will be left to lot our
neonle recotrniw that there is a tie be
tween them nnd th national Govern
. ment other than ilu vexatious internal
revenue laws of which these mountain
eers complain so" much. As this is but
a small appropriation proposed by the
House of llenrt e ntail ves. of $4,000, to
keen open this assay office' .1 should
dislike to have Mit-h a degree of econo
my prevail here as would Induce the
Knitf to accent the DroDOsition of the
committee to strike it out.
Mr. Pool. The committee found in
this bill as it mine from the House of
RpnnvientAtlves an aDDronriation of
' about forty-five hundred dollars for the
keeping up of this a.say office at Char
lotte. 1 aia not Know, nor ao a sup
note that any Senator who feels any
focal interest in the matter knew, that
the committee wn in vestigatingwheth
er it was proper to continue this appro
priation. II l n:ui naa ine icasi notice
of it, I should have brought some facts
to the attention or tne committee; dui
inasmuch as I had no " notice, and
broueht no facts to the attention of the
committee, I will now produce some
for the information of the Senate.
This was established as a mint In
1835. It cost the Government for the
building $29,600. The machinery cost
$o6,000. This establishment was there
fore erected at a cost of $So,S00. The
amount of coinage up to the war in this
mint was $5,043,541 from the products
of the gold of North Carolina alone, to
s-ay nothing of Georgia, Alabama,
Tennessee, and South Carolina. ,There
was also coined at the Philadelphia
Mint, in the same period, $4,-iG6,02G,
making the amount of the coinage up
to the war, from the North Carolina
productof gold, $9,314,067. The amonnt
used by jewelers, on account or the'
purity of the gold, from the North Car
olina product, is stated In the reports
of the Treasury Department to be$l,-
- 137,0-jC In addition to that the amount
. .-. i
oi ronn vroiuui guiu w&it w new
Yrkin bars was $147,775, making",
. from 1838, when this coinage first com
menced and theso mines were .first
worked, the . product of the State of
North Carolina aluno nearly $11,000,000.
'Siiiee the war there" have been railroad
projects undertaken which ' will very
much incrcjiso the mining operations
of that region, ..M there have been dis
coveries of mines f hero which I have
no doubt In the worM will make it
necessary at a very eany day that there
should be an assay office at least in that
locality somewhere.
Now, sir. the proposition is that we
shall expo. to sacrifice by Eale proper-
y which cost this Government $S5,800,
with a pro?iect near at hand of having
tore-establish an assay office there,
rather than to apj ropriate the pitiful
Vum of $4, ", sxurcely enough to keep j
the buildings ami uiaemnery in opera
tion, for the purjx e of continuing it to
sec what this devcjopa.ont will amount
to. I do 'not thiiik it will be good
policy on .ihft par: of t he Government.
? There i. :ihiT -n. The chair
man of the committee fays thathedoes
not see that i t wou M be of . any very
great benefit to iUv . people oi Tnai re
gion. I call the attention
of the Sen-
ate to the net that thosa who are en
gaged in jnining operations In that re
gion are not large, mammoth corpora
tions, not companies. The mining is
mainly carried on by IndivldualsTby
farmers, who, - when they, have : laid
their,' go to the streams and
commence washing gold. They are
-subject to Imposition by brokers and
a ' 1 A 11 A 1 f
sioreKeepers, wno get. uieir meiar jrum
them at less than its value. It is in the
interest of labor that there should bo
an assay office within convenient reach
of those people who; are laboring in'
mining operations. ' '.
I see that in this very bill wo havo
already appropriated to the mint at
Denver $28,335 ; to the assay office at
Boise City, in Idaho. $11,077, and We In
the whole of thasouthern States ask for
an appropriation of only $4,500 for the
purpose of continuing the only assay
office south of Philadelphia. The office
at New Orleans has been stricken down;
the one In Georgia -has been stricken
down since tho war, and the only one
left-south of Philadelphia is this (little
assay office at Charlotte, North.-Carolina.
I do not think that it is fair r
right to strike it down. I do not think,
in view of the interests of those people,
and in view of the interests of tlie Gov
ernment itself, there should be a refu
sal to appropriate this little pittance.
The chairman of the committee; says
that if it would continue the allegiance
of these people and good feeling toward
theGovernment he would be willing td
continue it. Now, 3Ir. President; I do
nt put it upon any such ground as that,
I believe the allegiance of these people
would not be affected by it one way or
the other ; but I do think there is an air
of injustice in this matter that ought to
be looked to and'observed. Wo jhave
srospecti ve interests there that ought to
e attended to, and the Government
las prospective interests that ought to
)e attended to also. i
- I" would say to the .Senator from
Vermont that' he . takes into jview
only the present condition of theim
ing interests of North Carolina. If
he would go back to the figures before
the war and see the amount! pro
duced then, he would find that it was
very much larger tnan ne supposes.
That we shall have a return of these
minincr interests In -greatly increased
proportions I think is 'a matter of cer
tainty. The Government has buildings
there now which cost $55,000. tThe
proposition is to sell them and sell ,the
machinery. They will be sold at an
enormous sacrifice; and It is my judg
ment that in less than three years from
this time, if this establishment is sold
out, a proposition will carry before
Congress to re-establish at any necpssa
ry expense, perhaps an expense larger
than one hundred thousand dollars.
In the meantime, until we can! see
what the developments are likely to be,
I think the buildings and machinery
ought to be continued. ' The establish
ment is doing some business, no great
amount at this time, I admit, nor is
any other branch of industry in the
Southern States thriving at this time.
Everything is languishing. Wedo not,
of course think that this state of things
will continue. I think, as a matter of
fairness and right and economy, ;t his
mint ought to be continued. The
proposition ' here not only is not to
make the appropriation, but to sell out
the whole establishment at any price
that may be obtained. j

In calling public attention td this-little
machine, a few of tho invaluable qualities,
(not possessed . by any other washing ma
chine yet invented,) are here enumerated, .
It is the smallest.1 most commct. most-
portable, most simple in construction, most
easily operated. - A child ten years1 old, with
a fewhour3 practice, can thoroughly, com
prehend and effectually use it. ; There is, no
adjusting, no screws to annoy, no delay iii,
adapting V It Is always ready fbr use I It'
is a perfect little wonder ! It is a miniature
giant, doing more work and of a better
quality, tlian the mast elaborate and costly.
One - half . of the labor is fully srtved by its .
use; arfd the clothes will last one-half longer
than ;by tho old plan of tho rub board. It
will wash the largest blanket. Three shirts
ata time, washing thoroughly f fin a word,!
tne aoiutron or any laoric, irom a Quilt to a
Lace Curtain or Cambric Handkerchief, are
equally within the capacity of this LITTLE
GEM f It can be fastened to any tub and '
taken off at will.,. - , 4 ' .
No matter how deep rooted a prejudice
may exist against; WashingMachines, the.
moment this littlo .'machine is seen to per
form its wonders, all doubts of its cleansing"
efficacy and .utility are banished, and tho
doubter and detractor at once become the-
Liast friends of the machine. , , j -L ; , ; ; ; .
Wc have testimonials without end, setting
forth its numerous advantages over all oth '
ers, and from hundreds who have thrown
aside the unwieldy, useless machines, which -have
signally failed to accomplish the ob-
Qctpromised in prominent onct load sound
ing advertisements. r
It is as perfect for washing as a, wringer is.
for wringing. The price another paramount "
inducement to purchasers, has been placed
so low that it is within tho Teach of every '
housekeeper; and there is no article of do
mestic economy that will r repay tho small
investment so soon. : ; , ; ,j ( i , .
