SAVANNAH, WEDNESDAY. MARCH 2!*.
The News —Again are our colomns so
crowded with news that there is li’tie space
left for our editorial lucubrations, and we
fancy that our readers will not perhaps regret
the circumstance very much.
Wc offer them new and interesting gossip
ing letters from our Northern com spondenU.
Wegivc them also further particulars of mat
ters of heavier and graver importance, in
the shape of political news, both home ana
foreign—and the latest tidings from the war
—and to close our programme we give rebel
news from the latest sources which have
crossed our lines. If this isn't a pretty rich
hill of fare, we don’t know what would he.
. From Augusta to the 23i> inst. —We have
had the pleasure of conversing with two
young men just arrived in this city from Au
gusta by the way of Macon. They were vic
tims of the merciless conscription, and fled
from sheir homes rather than join the rebel
army. Between .Macon ‘and Augusta they
were seized by a body of Wheeler's cavalry,
who plundered them of all they had—money,
clothes and food, scarcely leaving them the
clothes upon their backs. They repeat the
old story of distress and high prices in Au
gusta and other Confederate towns. Flour
was SSOO to S6OO per barrel; corn $45 per
bushel; bacon $7 50 per pound ; tallow and
lard $8 per pound. Board from SSO to S6O
Quinine was $175 per ounce and opium
SI,OOO per pound. Greenbacks were 25 for
1, and gold 50 to 60 for I. Confederate
money was so worthless that when Wheeler s
cavalry pillaged them their grey backs were
declined by the thieves.
Brig. Gen. M. J. Wright was in command
at Macon. No trains are now runuing from
Macon to Milieu, though communication is
still open between Macon and Augusta.
The Weather.— We’re always having
weather. Somehow or another, weather
nev r goes out of fashion. Just at present
r:. v,- a-her is the special style, and the
- j or*—damp, mo.st i.
..u is objeciioua .lo ui.

of moist unpleasantness. However, it is as
it is, and we must make the best of it. Yes
terday we had rain overhead, and mud under
foot ; let us hope that to-day uiay r bring
us bright skies and dry sidewalks.
Theatrical.— At the Theatre last evening,
tho gh the rain was incessant and severe, so
much so as necessarily to deter from their
anticipated attendance many who had hoped
to enjoy the fine rendition of the “Lady oi
Lyons,” still those who did attend were much
gratified, as ive learn from a friend. Owing
to the sickness of one of our editorial corps,
our dramatic critic kindly undertook other
work last evening, and was unable to attend
We saw the piece on its first representa
tion by this company however, and received
from it the most favorable impressions as to
the ability of the company to render it ad
mirably, Wc trust Mr. Davenport will not
be deterred by the elemental accident ol rain
/rom again producing the play, when we
shall, if necessary, be prepared to make no
small sacrifice in order to be present through
out the whole of the representation.
Fun.—ln our Evening Edition we shall be
enabled to give full particulars of an ex
ceedingly interesting Birth-Day Party, which
was given last evening by certain gentlemen
who have rooms at the Pulaski House. The
party was not entirely free from convivial
features. Songs were sung; toasts* were
drunk, and several speeches were made, of
which jve propose to give an abstract this
We could give some particulars at present,
but we fancy that ‘.hose most interested will
have the report quite soon enough il it is
printed any time to-day.
Water.— Temperance men and cold-water
drinkers have a pretty rough time in Savan
nah whenever a rain storm visits us. Just at
present, the river, from whence
our reservoir is supplied, is as muddy as if it
never expected to get clear again. If a
tumbler of hydrant water to-day docs not
contain more than an inch and a quarter of
mud in the bottom, it will be because it
comes from a clearer spot than that which
yields us our own present supply.
The Work or Raising Negro Regiments
PJR TXIE IvEUEL A.RMY COMMENCED.—OIII* lilcS
fate Richmond papers show, among other
things, that the effort to raise negro regi
meuts for tHe rebel armies has commenced
in earnest. The official order bas been is
sued from the Adjutant General’s office, and
a rendezvous for the reception of recruits,
slave gnd free, has been established. All
who are received will be mustered in for the
war. Judging Ironi pit sent appearances,
their term ot service will be a very short
one. General Lee, in a letter written on the
10th inst., urges on the work of raising and
organizing negio troops, and says he is very
cnxlous to witness their first experiments in
fighting for the rebel cause.

RECOMMENDS that the secretary of the
treasury have power to relieve the
basks from the penalties for usury.
Inasmuch as the history of all commercial
nations has shown it to be occasionally neces
sary, lor the regulation of trade between
them and other nations, that the rate of in
terest should bo under the control of an au
thority less arbitrary than statutes, 1 further
recommend that the Secretary of the Treas
ury. or a commission to be created by Con
gress. be authorized temporarily to relieve
die national hanks in the cities of Philadel
puia, New York, Boston, etc., from all pen
alties for usury, whenever it shall be thought
ihat the public interests will be promoted
This recommendation is in the spirit of that
previously made to relieve the Banks from
the penalties of a violation of the usury laws.
THE BENEFICIAL EERECT OF SUCH POWER.
The judicious use of the power possessed
by the Bank of England of checking, by an
advance of the rate of interest, excessive
:-peculation, and the creatiou of a foreign
debt, to be liquidated by shipments of com,
has frequently pievented financial crises in
Great Britain. The same power prudently
and resolutely wielded by the hanks, of New
York as a unit, would, iu years past, have
saved millions to the United States. It may
be many years before the national bauks will
possess the power now held by the State
hanks in that city, but they may have it in
due time; and when this is the fact no statu
tory restrictions should prevent them from
using it for the benefit of the country.
It is well known how necessary in the in
stances of the" Bank of England, such a
power is, not only to the safety>>f that insti
tution, but to protect the country against ex
tensive mercantile bankruptcies. It is the
balance wheel of their financial system.
THE EFFECT OF AN INFLATED CURRENCY.
It is frequently the case that money is ap
parently the most plenty when there is the
least of it in circulation, and the scarcest
when it has attained the highest point before
a financial crisis. Alt increase of the circulat
ing medium injlates prices. High prices require
an increased circulation, and so they act aud react
upon eM'h other \ and there appears to be no re
dundancy afcurrency,nomutter how vast the volume
may be until a collapse takes place, and what
was supposed to bo real prosperity is shown, to be
without a substantial foundation.
The words in italics contain a summary ot
the whole philosophy of the subject of an
ilat.d currency. I*’ in: ‘.■fbio tocoin
p jss iu fewer words :. i .•; >: aud reaction
of an increase of circulating medium on
prices, and the necessity of a further increase
to circulate the same quantity of commodities
at enhauced prices.
Now, this objection to a bank note circula
tion applies -with much greater force to gov
ernment issues. There is always induce
ment enough for banks to keep up a full
circulation, aud against excessive issues there
are the restrictions of law and the liability to
redeem. Government notes, in the Issue
ihereof, would be regulated only by the ne
cessities of the government or the interests of
the party in power. At one time they might
be increased altogether beyond the needs of
commerce and trade, thereby enhancing
prices and inducing speculation; at another,
they might be so reduced as to embarrass
business and precipitate financial disasters.—
They would he incomparably worse in this
respect than a bank note currency, because
the power that should control circulation
would be the power that furnishes it. Sup
plied by an authority not In sympathy with
trade, they would not be accommodated to
ihe requirements of trade. They might be
the fullest iu volume when there was the least
demaud for a full circulation, and the most
contracted when there was a healthy de
mand for an £crcase. They would eventu
ally become an undesirable circulation, be
cause there would be no way in which the
redemption of them could be enforced; they
would he a dangerous circulation, because
they would be under the control of political
parties; an unreliable circulation, because,
having no connection with trade and com
merce, they would not be regulated by their
This is sound doctrine as relates io gov
ernment issu.es. Nothing but the necessity
of providing financial resources before taxes
can be cpllected justifies the use of this
THE EFFECT OF PLETHORA OF MONEY.
When money is plenty and tortunes are
being rabidly acquired, the country is always
in a feverish and unhealthy state. This is
especially true at the present time. The
enormous expenditures of the government,
and the great advancement in prices since
the commencement of the war, have made
many persons suddenly rich, and, upon for
tunes suddenly acquired, have lollowed
reckless expenditures, extravagauce, waste.
Speculation is taking the place of sober and
persevering industry, and thousands are
deluged with the notiou that the wealth of
the nation is being increased by the increase
of its indebtedness.
The truth of these conclusions is beyond
dispute. The enormous expenditures of the
government and the great advance in prices
since the commencement of the war, have
made mauy persons suddenly rich, and upon
lortunca suddenly acquired havo followed
reckless expenditures, extravagance and
HAS FEARS FOR THE NATIONAL HANKS.
The inauguration of anew system ot bank
ing, under such circumstances, is peculiarly
hazardous, and I have been, from the time
of my appointment, more apprehensive that
too many banks would be organized than
that the system would not be sufficiently at
tractive to induce capitalists to become con
nected with it. The government is the great
borrower. Its obligations compose a large
portion of the discount line of the banks,
which are making large profits on govern,
meat securities at little apparent risk, and
the danger is that the national banking sys
tem, with all its restrictions, may, during the
suspension of specie payments, and the con
tinuance ol the war, add to the plethora of
paper money; and that, wiien the war is
over, the. banks, deprived of the existing
means of investment in government obliga
tions, and fiuding no legitimate use for their
capitals, may be tempted to use them in en
couraging operations that will eventually
prove to be as unprofitable to themselves
as they will be injurious to the country. For
the double purpose, tlierefoie. ot keeping
down the national circulation as far as it lias
seemed possible to do it, consistently with
the establishment of the system throughout
the country, and preventing an increase of
banking capital, that might hereafter be
instrumental in keeping up the inflation and
retarding the resumption of specie payments,
or prove unprofitable to its owners, I have
felt it to be my duty to discourage, iu many
instances, the organization of new bauks,aed
iu more instances to refuse niv sanction to
the increase of the capital of those already
organized. In doing so I may seem to have
exercised a power not warranted by the act;
but if not sustained by its letter, I have been
by its spirit, and lam willing to let the fu
ture decide as to the correctness or incorrect
ness of my course.
It wonld appear from the above extract
that Mr. McCulloch was averse to the adop
tion of the National Bank system, but in ex
ecuting the functions of his office ho sought
to give it all the efficiency of which it was
susceptible. His conclusions from the opera
tions of the system are founded on uniform
experience from too great au increase of
banking capital, keeping up inflation and
retarding the resumption of specie pay
The expenditures of the government have
created a great expansion of currency and
of prices. There would have undoubtedly
been an expansion, in a less degree it is true,
but still an expansion, if the war had been
carried on upon a spe.cie basis. Prices of all
the necessaries of life as well as luxuries, and
of everything which the government must
purchase in the prosecution of the war, are
enormously high, and the penalty is yet to
be paid; for the inflation, in increased taxa
tion aud the ruin which must overwhelm the
thousands who believe, anti act upon the be
lief, that the apparent prosperity of the
country, is real, and is be interrupted.
Fortunate will the country be if the war can
be closed and prices reduced to former stan
dards without a collapse, which will as great
ly excel in the extent of its. disaster that
which occurred at the close of the last war
with England, as the present war excels that
in costliness and magnitude.
THE NATIONAL BANK OUGHT TO REDEEM IN NEW
There are too many points at which banks
may redeem their notes. All, with the ex
ception of those in Philadelphia and Boston,
should redeem in New York.
banks should prepare for a return to spe
The bauks ought to be compelled by law
to retain a part, if not all the coin received
by them, for iuterest on their gold bearing
bonds, in order that they may be prepared
to lend their influence in favor of a return to
specie payments, and some provisions should
be introduced by which, when specie
ments are resumed, excessive importation of
goods may be checked, and dangerous im
portations of coin may be prevented.
FINANCE AND POLITICS.
It is of the greatest importance that the
national currency system should be inde
pendent of politics and freed from political
influences. To effect this, aud to facilitate
the business of the banks with the Comp
troller, I am clearly of the opiuion that the
bureau should be made an independent de
partment, and removed from Washington
to Philadelphia or New York.
NEW YORK COMMENTS ON TIIE
We copy the following two articles from
the New York Times of the 22d inst. They
are appropriate, and doubtless will have
their interest for our readers:
The Financial Panic. —The anticipated
collapse of the rebellion is producing its nat
ural consequence, in the fall of gold. Yes
terday gold went down to 154, though it
subsequently went up again. Til’s is a fall
of fiity per cent, within a month. So sud
den and serious a change in the recognized
standard of value, naturally produces con
fusion, failure and disaster in every depart
ment ol business. Even Government securi
ties, like everything else, feel the shock, aud
yesterday some of the very best Government
stocks sold at from eight to twelve per cent,
discount. There may be persons who fancy
that this state of things is desirable; but no
thing, in our judgment, could well be more
disastrous. Any great financial crisis, what
ever may be its cause, shakes and shatters
the whole business fabric ot the country.—
What the country needs is such a gradual de
cline in the price of gpld as will enable ail
branches of business, publie and private, to
adapt themselves gradually and safely to the
necessities which it creates.
A New French Minister: —Among the
news from Europe which we publish to day,
in the bold announcement that M. De Moii
tholon has been appointed French Minister
at Washington, and M. Dano, Minister to
Mexico, This disposes of the speculative
theories founded on the non-arrivrl of M. De
Chateanien.u 1, the minister first nominatt and
as the successor of M. Mercier. The new
ambassador may be presumed, from his resi
dence here in the capacity ofFreneh Consul-
General, not less than from his more recent
position in Mexico, to bring to his new mis
sion at least a familiarity with American con
tinental affairs, which may facilitate liis per
formance of the duties on which he is about
to enter. It is a curious coincidence that
France shonld send us a Minister raised from
the rank of Consul at New York, just as we
send them one formerly Consul at Paris.
Great Freshets at the North. —The
heavy freshet and thaw inaugurated by the
rain of last Thursday night have caused im
mense damage, extending through a wide
extent of country. The accounts of the de
vastations of the flood multiply. Through
.out various States, as far cast as New Hamp
shire and as far west a 3 Missouri, the rivers
have been swollen to an extraordinary height
and the increased volume of water and accel
erated currents have carried everything be
fore them, overflowing thousands of acres of
lowlands, inundating cities,' towns and rail
roads, and sweeping oft vast amounts of pro
perty. Travel bas been temporarily stopped
on several of the main railways of the coun
try, as also telegraphing on some of the liuc3.
One hundred miles of the Erie Railroad, and
several miles of the New York Central and
other principal routes of travel were on last
Saturday under water.
[From the Afcgusta Constitutionalist. March 15.] 1
A Man for the Crisis.— ‘*ln times of
great peril, it is good that men reason togeth
er upon the actions of their rulers.” Such
was the timely admonition of an eminent
Frenchman at a time when disaster and de
struction threatened the Government of
Fiance, not only by a powerful opposing
arm v from abroad, bat by a failure of a cer
tain class of their rulers to sustain thejwishes
of the people; and the language is no less
applicable to the present crisis of our own
The South, almost unanimously, had look
ed forward to the passage of the late bill be
fore Congress, authorizing the enlistment of
negroes in the army with a degree of confi
dence which was indeed cheering in its pros
pects, hut with one fell blow it has blighted,
we fear forever, the fairest and brightest
hopes of the nation, laid low its energy and
paralyzed its power; and as a wise people,
guarding with eternal vigilance our sacred
cause, it is not the true policy to lie supinely
on our backs and watch in silence and with
indifference the vitals torn from the bosom of
our country, when believing and knowing
the means of resistance lies within our grasp.
No demand has ever been made by the
Confederate Government for means, money
or material for the prosecution of this war,
which has not been acquiesced in by the
people without scarcely a mutmur; nor can
any demand lie made looking to the advance
ment ot our cause that will not be cheerfully
submitted to by them. But when the Gov
ernment or any of its co-ordinate branches,
invested as they have been with almost
supreme power, fail through self-interest, or
any other motive, to comprehend the magni
tude of this revolution, and act in accordance
with its requirements, thereby becoming a
barrier to tlie subcess of the cause, the vox
popu/i will demur, and be heard in opposition
to a policy so disastrous in its effects and
fraught with so much evil in its terrible eon
sequences, and justice and humanity will
sustain them in their decision.
We, as a nation, have too much at stake to
daily over measures for months and months
in secret conclave that require prompt and
energetic action, and none but dastards can
or will do it. It will require but a moment’s
reflection for any man who lias the best iu
terest of his country at heart, and who will
take a clear and comprehensive view of the
great question involved in this great struggle,
to decide in favor even ot giving up the in
stitution of slavery forever if by the act we
can gain our independence, an object para
mount to all others. Though it is not our
purpose here to discuss this branch of the
subject—having had the honor of submitting
several articles to the public through your
columns heretofore, and will take this occa
sion to refer the reader to a series of articles
recently published iu the Constitutionalist by
W. W., which for ability and logical reason
ing have not been surpassed by any writer of
the present age.
But to return. Congress lias failed to meet
the publie expectation in this matter, and
grave issues now present themselves for the
consideration of every man who has a spark
of that patriotism left which once moved his
heart, in the defence of his native home;
danger is sounded from every mountain and
valley throughout the length and breadth of
the South ; danger of overthrowing her lib
erty, freedom and independence; danger of
subverting her every institution; danger of
her annihilation aud desolation, all. all come
to us upon every breeze, and still the late
Congress, Micawber like, failed to meet the
exigency of the times, ‘'waiting for some
thing to turn up.”
t\ e regard the salvation of the country iu
a great degree dependent upon the success
ful inauguration of this new policy,-and its
defeat in the hour (if gloom is an ill omen,
and feeling the lull measure ot its impor
tance we can but adopt the language of a
distinguished American Statesman, who
lived when virtue and integrity were the sole
monitors of the heart, and the good of the
people their only incentive to legislative ac
tion: “When, oh when, will the corrupting
influence of property cease to pervade the
Legislative Halls of our country?”
It is patent to every man, that we are now
in the death-grasp of this struggle, and with
out a different state of affairs, we must ere
long sink into irritrievable ruin. If the peo
ple submit to the action of Congress in ref
erence to the bill recently defeated by it, the
doomed institution of slavery will pa-s front
our hands at a much earlier day and lie turn
ed against us by the enemy, for our own de
struction. The question now comes from
all quarters, what shall be done in this the
hour of our country’s greatest peril ?
“Oh ! for an hour of our dead Dundee,” or
some mau equal to lli who would
wipe out the feeble reign of the “powers that
be.” Iu the hands of such a ntffi we would
be willing to risk the destinies of this Gov
ernment; and we believe one could bqpeelect
ed from our midst whose patriotism is suffi
cient to call forth an imitation of the “Father
of his Country, ” and when onr independence
lias been firmljr established to yield the
power invested in his hands and welcome
the eon of Liberty and Freedom. That man
is no other than Robert E. Lee. And if
this be treason make the most of it.”

A Little Goon Advice—Gratis. — As
Parson Brownlow is now Governor of Ten
nessee, it is greatly to he desired that he
should make some attempt to infuse a little
moderation into his language and demeanor.
A great meny things that were pardonable
in the East Tennesseean loyalist, really do
not lojk very becoming in the highest civil
functionary of the State, and we would fhere
fote, earnestly entreat the Parson, if only f< r
the sake of the cause for v h ch he lias suffer
ed so much, to make a thorough revision oi
his manner of expressing himself. The pub
lic both North and South is now familiar with
his sentiments on the subject of secession and
the war, as well as with regard to his rebel
neighbors, and we believe we express the
opinion of the best portion of the community
when we say that nothing that Gov. Brown
low can add to what lie lias already said
about them could increase our abhorencc of
these persons and their doings. The loyalists
whom they plundered and outraged while
secession was in the asetfa laiit, are now
bringing actions against, them in the civil
courts, and are obtaining heavy damages
against them ; and quite right, say we ; but
we think there is no occasion for the Gover
nor to comment on the matter in this style :
Impoverish . the villains—take all they
have give their effects to the Union men
taey have crippled and imprisoned—and let
them have their ‘Southern rights.’ They
swore they would carry on the war until
they exhausted their last little negro and lost
their lands. Put it to them, is our advice,
most religiously—fleece them, and let them
know how other men feel when robbed of
all they have! Let them be punished—W
them be impoverished-Met them be slain—
and after slain, let them be damned!”
We should not object io this sort of talk
so much if the Parson’s expressions had ever
been remarkable for feebleness. But ail
those who are familiar with him and m,
compositions can testify that this has never
been one of their defects. And we think now
that he has been made Governor of tlip
Stale, all parties would be the gainers if he
were to endeavor to make his articles end
letters al_ttle more “milk and watery " This
war is not going to last always, and when it
ends there will be in every State in
the Soutli a iaige number of persons
wiio have helped in one way or
other, either to bring it about or carry it on
as well as others who have, been from the
hrst bien oppcs nl to it, and have suffered for
their Unionist opinions. Now everybody who
loves the Union party ought, so far from
seeking to keep alive the name ot animosity
between these two classes of persons to do
everything in liis power to extinguish it \
strong desire for revenge will, of course
reign for a good while in the breasts of the
victorious party, but he must be a poor pa
triot, as well as poor Christian, who will do
or say anything to help them to gratify it
And the business of every man who finds
himself in an official position at the South
hereafter, is, before all other things, to wipe
out, as far -as lie can, the memories of the
war. Sojt.lie less said about “fleecing,” and
“slaying,” and “damning” the better, par
ticularly by Governors—iV. Y. Times.
Despatches to the 9th inst., have been ie
cfived. Refugees who had come into the
Union lines from the city of Mobile, reported
that rebel troops had been going from there
since the Ist of February, some of them to
Soutli Carolina; but there still remained iu
and around the town about fifteen thousand.
Most of these, however, were citizens, many
of them very young boys and old and infirm
men. lhe attacx of the national torces was
daily expected, and in anticipation of it the
women and children were beiyg sent away.
There was great distress among the poor
corn meal selling for fifteen dollars per bush
el, wheat flour lor two dollars and a half per
pound, and bacon for four dollars aud a half
per pound. One dollar greenbacks soid for
twenty-live dollars each in rebel notes.
Twenty thousand bales of cotton were railed
up iu one vast heap at the depot* of the Mo
bile and Ohio Railroad, ready for transpor
tation into the interior as soon as the rebels
should become convinced of their inability
to hold the place. The citizens believed
Gen. Maury, the rebel commander, would
burn the city if he was compelled to aban
don it. A severe wind storm visited Mobile
bay on the evening of the Bth inst., and con
tinued nearly twenty-four hours. Two
transports ol the national forces were driven
ashore, and some damage was done to one
or two other vessels.
Thackeray. —How can any careful reader
of his books apply the word ‘ ‘cynical” to this
great, warm, idviug, reverent heart ? It is
the very intensity with which lie feels and
sympathizes with the irailties and weaknesses
ot humanity that make his moralizings sad
and seemingly bitter. It is the coldest
hearts and the narrowest brains that are best
satisfied with society as it is. Thackeray
could transfix pretension, hypocrisy, vanity
and selfishness with the keenest shafts of
ridicule and dip the points iu gall, but no
man had a profounder reverence lor truth,
purity and honor, or a warmer love and pity
lor the injured and the suffering. lie paints
life as it is; he palliates no vice ; he exag
gerates no virtue; he was a true artist and a
great writer of the noblest school of fiction.
When lie died, English liteyature|lost one of
it3 greatest ornaments and “Vanity Fail” its
most faithful delineator.
