TUESDAY MORNING DEC. 3. 1861.
THE REDUCTION BILE.
The bill reducing the salaries of pub
lic officers has been vetoed by Gover
nor Brown. Both bouses have since
passed it over the veto.
Ed. Advocate —I see that you have
taken the correct xicw of “legislation
for the benefit, of the people” about to
be inaugurated by our over patriotic
law makers. It will indeed be a sad I
day for us, when our Governor’s and
Legislator's take upon themselves either
to enlarge or restrict trade ; to build up
or destroy monopolies ; to increase sup
ply or diminish demand ; for history
teaches us that whenever or wherever
attempted, it has failed of its purpose,
and operated to weaken the confidence
of the people in the government.
I understand the object of this strange.
I might say peculiar Georgia Legislation
is to destroy monopolies. If this be so
they should not forgot, that in all com
mercial speculations as the purchaser
does not buy for his own consumption
he proportions his purchases to what he
expects to sell. Since then the quanti
ty he can sell depends on the price he
nells at he will buy less according as
the price rises and more according as
it falls ; this I may say is the univ :rsal
law of trade as evidenced in every com
mercial community, and to vary it by
law is certain death to trade. In un
nettled times objects of the commonest
use may exceed the means ot the con
sumer, i e., shoes may be cheap yet out
of the reach of many, because leather
does not fall to a level with the means
of the people. Ought the law making
power therefore to oblige me to go bare
foot, who am able to pay the prices
charged by the tanner, because my
neighbor happens to be poorer than 1
am, by throwing around the manufac
turer such paines and penalties as will
close his vats and stop bis currying
knife. Not so. Government was in
tituled to secure the citizen in the en
joyment of 1 oth political and personal
rights. And whatever he may acquire
by dint of superior intelligence indus
try and perseverance in the prosecution
of a legitimate busin ss or calling is
peculiarity his, and any intcrferance on
the part of government is destructive of
these rights lessens his affection and
confidence in his rulers and prepares
him for any change in government how
ever despetic with a hope that under
it, personal ami private rights may be
respected. The value of an article is
what it will bring in the market. If
the price of this article is fixed by law
•below the charges of its production it
t once is discontinued, for no one is
■willing to labor for a loss, and he who
lived before by the production of this
article must of necessity perish.
The establ shment of fixed rates is a
■suppression of a portion of pr< d action
and consumption, in other words a di
.munitiunof the prosperity of the com
■munity which consists in production and
consumption. Let a scarcity of corn
cotne, the price, rises in consequence,
•yet the laborer or mechanic may by re
doubling his exertions or by increasing
his wages procure his accustomed sup
ply at the market price. In the mean
lime the legislature fixes corn at half
it* natural or market price, what fol
lows ? 1 who had supplied myself and
would have bought no more hud it re
tnattKsl at its market value out of su
prrfluotiscaution, and to take advan'age
<»f its cheapness, get the start of the la
borer and add to my own stoic what
would, in the natural course of trade
have gone to the laborer. I have by oj>-
eration oflaw and capacity to buy. taken
a doubl? share ami leave the mechanic
destitute. He then has to work for me
.at my prices, for labor, not corn, or per
ish at his anvil. The sale is no longer
regulated by wants and means, but by
superior activity of traders. Under
this rule you fore** every man to become
a trader, who has means If this be
true, fixed prices gives us a scarcity in-
Rtcad of plenty. 1 hold this to be true
s law that fixes the price of things is
nugatory and serves only to alarm pro
ducers and consumers, deranges the
natural proportion bt t ween production
and demand, which it left to itself, would
. work out beneficially tor both, am! if

THE MARIETTA SEMI-WEEKLY ADVOCATE
I could but deem it un necessary to
demonstrate the utter absurdity of the
T de of profit fixed by this bill, but de
sist feeling satis led that sensible peo
ple and probably one or more members
of our Legislature do. Lincoln’s war,
and a determination to be popular, seems
to have bereft our legislators of the
little law making sense they went to
Os all the great men on this wide
earth—of all the patriots, generals,
statesmen, and philanthropists, the bra

lentis he calling himself “Number One.”
True, he fellows Burn’s advice.
‘•He keeps himself, as well's he can,
From critical dissection,
But peeps through every other man,
With sharpened, sly inspection.”
But that’s his vocation and it is “no
sin lor a man to labor in his vocation.”
Some mighty magnate in the State,
or some little great man, theoretically
the servant, practically the master of
those who elected him, gets an idea into
his knowledge-box, that it would be a
good and popular thing to interfere with
the regular course of trade in some par
ticulars. Accordingly he seizes, with
out authority of law and on his own
responsibility, the people’s goods and
says he is going to appropriate them to
the public. He t ikes private property
for “public uses” though it is hard to
tell how the public is to be benefitted,
when a stop is thus put not only to sell
ing but eventually to buying. The act
is popular however. A good many peo
ple sh ut Hosannah, forgetting that
“the poisoned chalice may be commend
ed to their own lips.” The officer ex
pects higher advancement from the ma
jority, and he looks out for “Number
One.” What business have a small
minority of property owners with rights?
Well done I says the usurer, all specu

Well, it is not surprising that human
nature is very much like porcine nature
with i slight difl', rence in favor of
the latter, as is dubiously supposed, in
the small article oi sou/#. A depred it

squeals call together all of his name and

You had no business trying clandes
tinely to get at those nubbins, through
such a narrow crack, says (or might
say) one. Serves you right, says an

legs ami the poor victim of bis own
speculation is torn to p’ecos —a sacri
fice, to the pitiless, selfishness of his
porcine “fellow-citizens,” —everyone ot
whom would have done as the sufferer
did, had thep espied the crack, judged
it large enough to creep through and
the speculation a profitable one. The
victim can’t understand the point of the

extortion and the grasping capacity
which has disgraced the operations of
some monoplists, whose proceedings we
conmm:i and suffer by as much as any,
and regret that an opportunity, which
appears to have been inevitable, was
offered for extortion, yet we would ex
hort all those who are disposed to con
demn others to examine themselves, and
answer candidly if they would not do
the same, under similar circumstances

EFFECTS OF THE INVASION OF
THE SOUTHERN COAST—WHAT
THE COMMERCIAL, WORLD WILL
LOSE BY THE LINCOLN RAID.
We find the following interesting
letter, containing many painful and
startling truths, in the Columbia “Caro
linian,” of the 21st:
Charleston, Nov. 19, 1861.—Edisto
Island is nearly laid in ruins. Mr. J.
J. Mikel, Mrs Hopkinson, and Mr I.
Legare, have all burned their entire
crops —nearro houses, barns, &c., and
at a meet ng of the planters this has
been universally determined on. The
same spirit actuates the owners of all
the Sea Island plantations. I fully
expect to hear that the entire Sea Is
land crop es this State will meet a sim
None will be saved, for all is in the
fields or gin-houses; thus twenty thous.
and bales the product of this State
amounting to two millions five hun
died housand dollars, will be destiey
ed by the hands of proprietors them
selves, rather that: it shall fall into the
possession of our vandal enemies, and.
I have no reason to believe that Geor
gia will pursue any oilier course. Her
people are as noble and self-sacrificing
as ours. The Sea Island crop of last
year was estimated at forty thousand
bales, and this year the favorable seas
ons made the planters calculate on for-,
tyfive thousand bales.
Should the vandals over run Florida,
and make any demonstration on the
Sea Island producing portions of that
State, yon may expect, the planters there
to follow our example, and thus will
the entire fine staple crop of this Con
federacy be totally destroyed, estima
ted n value ut SIOO to $l5O a bale,
from four to five millions; but this is
not all. The cultiva ion of this article
will not be resumed while the war lasts
It is known to you that the seaboard of
South Carolinia, Georgia and Florida
are the only regions of the earth where
fine and extra fine cotton, termed long
staple can be successfully produced.
Now, the production of this article is
indispensable to the manufacturers of
Boton, Lancashire, and many other of
the districts in England, France, Ger
many and Switzerland. 1 here is no
substitute for it, and the lace and silk
spinners will led the blow even more
severely than we, who only sacrifice
our incomes and our luxuries; they
have, besides their mills to keep in
working order and occupied, a large
number of operatives to feed, and these
people are not easily managed when
thrown out of employment.
There is much trouble in England,
growing out of Earl Russell’s idea that
slavery is a wrong and against the
sentiments of England, and therefore,
acting on this principle it were better
to exterminate the institution of slave
ry and the South, rather than acknowl
edge our just independence, which
would insure the prosperity of her peo
ple even through the Yankee govern*
ment go to war foi so doing. I hope
our people will remember the course
England has assumed against us, and
when we can let us express our senti
men is freely I see no hope for the
raising of the blockade while Earl Rus
sell occupies the Government, but I d >
look in time for a change in public sen
tinieir so strong that Derby will take
the reins, and the justice we seek be
no longer denied us.
The weather is cold and winterish,
yet the body of the people are calm and
determined. Ihe sacrifices our fore’
fathers made during the first Revolu
tion will cheerfully be endured again.—
W c will fight and conquer the Yan
kee vandals on our soil, even th mgh
we fight them without shoes cr cloth

Tennessee on the Prosrcution of the
Wak—A > Proposition for a Restoration
or Re-con strvetion to be Entertained -fhc
tollowing resolutions, relating to South
ern independence, wire offered in the
lower branch ol the Tennessee Legisla
ture on tqe 16th :
Resolved, That it is the sense of this
General Assembly that the separation
of those St ites now forming the Confed
erate States of America from the United
States, is and ought to be final, berpet
ual and irrevocable, and that Tennessee
will, under no circumstances, en ertain
anv proposition from any quarcr which

or reconstruction of the late Jnion, on
anv terms or conditions whatever.
Resolv'd, I hat the war which the
United states are waging upon the Gen

THE COMING SE*MON OF THE U.S.
CO VGRESS—EFFICIENCY OF THE
ARMY OF THE POTOMAC—OPEN
ING TRADE WITH THE SOUTH.
“Ion,” the special Washington cor*
respondent of the Baltimore Sun, wri
ting under date of the 22dinst., says:
The approaching session of the Con
gress will no doubt be protracted into
the summer mouths notwithstanding
the desire of members to spend their
time and wages at home and the cred
it they might cl aim of a month’s ser
vice already at the extra session. The
business of the session will be as im
portant as it will be novel. L will
open a new era in the history of the
country, and perhaps determine its site
for some time to come. The* extent of
the operations of the war will demand
much attention, and a number of inves
tigations into its incidents will be
necessary. Several committees ap
pointed at the late session will make
their reports, and others will be ap
pointed. Foreign complications may
arise, and require attention. The char
acter and objects of the war may un
dergo an essential change, for already
there exists a large party that favors
the prosecution of the war tor the pur
pose of emancipating slaves.
It is just four months since the bat*
tie of Bull Run, and tlvuight it is not
to be signalized by an advance, yetexe
ry one seems to be convinced, Gy the
splendid review of the grand army of
the Potomac that the preparations re
quisite lor a movement are complete.—
Ihe rumor that the Confedera e army
on the Potomac was disorganized is
quickly followed by another that it is
re-organized. The two armies face
each other and are almost in sight.
Which will move forward first is the
question, for neither will retreat.
As to winter quarters, the Federal
troops on the other side of the Potom
ac have already much improved their
accommodations. Their tents are com
fortable by log ami clay basements,
ami many of tuem have some sort of
a fire-place. If, say some of the officers
the troops be inform cd that they are to
remain where they are, thev will soon
make their quarters tolerable, with the
means they have at hand, in logs,
brushwood, clay, empty barrels, &c.
Complaints are made in some quar
ters of the project oi Senator Simmons
for furnishing tne enemy with salt, su
gar, coffee, &c., in exchange for cotton.
It is objected that the Government
policy is to deprive he Conleder ites
of such necessaries. There is no dan
ger, however, at present, that much
comme.ee will be opened with them.—
All the cotton that we obtain must be
taken by force, if, indeed, it Can be
forced in any large quantity.
From I ybee.—The steamer Ida, which
arrived from below yesterday afternoon,
brought no news ot interest from iybee.
We understand that the enemy landed
a regiment of die Island ycsteiday af
ternoon, and that there are probably
fifteen hundred to two thousand troops
now encamped there. Seven vessels
are inside of the bar, but none were in

TAFSTAY LAW AND BANK RELIEF
Both houses have concurred in the
re-enactment of the bill for the relief of
the people, known as the Stay Law, and
it has been signed by the Governor. The
House yesterday passed the Bank Relief
Bill, and the Senate met last night for
its consideration, and doubtless concur
red, so as to avoid any possible incon
venience to the banks from the expira
tion of the provisions of tin.* old act. —

the banks to pay on treasury notes at

From the Comptroller General’s Report.
The Regiments of Volunteers in the Ser
vice of the Confederate Government.
While reporting the expenses of our State
for Military purposes—although not required
by law, yet I desired if it was possible to do
so, to present the organization of the various
Regiments of Volunteers received into the
service by the Confederate States Government
—that is, to give the name of the Colonel,
Lieutenant Colonel, Major, and the Captains
and Lieutenants of Companies in each Regi
ment, the counties from which each Company
came, and, also the number of each Regiment
as given it by the Confederate Slates Govern
As much of this information could only be
obtained from the Wer Department at Rich
mond, I have used my best exertions to obtain
the same from that point, without success. I
have only been enabled to get an official state
ment of the numbering of the various regi
ments, reported or received at that Depart
ment, up to the Ist of October, together with
the stations ot the Regiments named. As
the num Iters of many of the Regiments are
different from those given them when they
left Georgia, and as in all reports of the Con
federate officers, they will only be designated
and kdswn by the numbers given them by
the Confederate Government, 1 have conclud
ed to submit the information received upon
this point, which is as follows:
