C ' 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 region. ' 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 -crops.by,' 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 Tho Presiding Officer.

'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.
