Steamers Direct to New York.— We
have to congratulate our readers, and felici
tate ourselves, on the prompt establishment
of a regular k fine of Steamers to New \ ork
from this city, dirt*-/. This will save all the
vexatious delays and botherations of trans
shipping goods aod freight at Hiltou
Head, and passeogers for Savannah will be
no more compelled to leave at the Head their
comfortable State Rooms and-Cabins, and go
cm board a small, inconvenient craft, simply
for the purpose of a five hours’ ride to Sa
vannah. All the inevitable waste and dam
age which is inseparable from a re-shlpment
ot goods, however caretully performed, will
be avoided, and passengers will lie spared
the discomfort and the consequent ill humor
which ever attend a hurried change ol quar
Aside irom the mere questions of comfort
and ease, the actual saving in money will be
much. Communication with New York and
he North generally, will be nrit only speedi
er, but much more certain and satisfactory.
Two, the advance of the new line ol
steamers, have already reached here, the
America, Capt. Clift, and the Chase, Capt.
Rodgers. Another probably left New York
on the 14tb, and still another will start for
thl9 port on the 20th, or 22d. It is intended
to run the boats 90 that we shall have here a
Northern steamer once in 10 days, though,
as soon as the business increase will warrant
it, the efficient and gentlemanly Agent,
Mr. Lewis L. Jones, promises us a boat
every week, or even oftener, if we can fill
them with freight and passengers. •
Truly .Peace beglus already so shed her
blessings'upon us. -
Fese Stock of Druos, Ere — A. reference
to oar advertising columns will inform our
readers that tbeir former friends, Messrs. A.
A. Solomons & Cos., liave ju9t received by the
steamer America, a varied and extensive
assortment of Drugs, Medicines, Perfumery,
and all articles especially belonging to that
branch of trade. These gentlemen have
been many years in business in Savannah,
and have now an excellent reputation for fair
and liberal dealing. They have ever kept
on hand a large stock of goods, probably one
of the largest in the city, and are in the habit
of doing an extensive wholesale as well as
retail trade. Though the war has for some
time exercised its depressing influence on
their business, they have sent North for a
fall and complete stock of all materials
which-are usually dealt in by druggists.—
Xheirjeooris have,arrived, and are now offer
ed to the people at me lowest market prices,
at their old stand, in Market Square.

Pioneer Line of New York and Savan
nah Screw Stkamshifs.— The pioneer steam
ship . Chase, Capt. M. L. Rodgers, 74 hours
from New York, arrived at the wharf in this
city yesterday, having her cabin filled with
passengers and with a heavy freight list.
'Hie Chase has excellent passenger accom
modations for the trade between New York
and Savannah. Her officers and the New
York Agent, Mr. Lewis Jones, are deter
mined by their attention to the travelling
public and . the mercantile community to
make their new line a success.
We give the following as the dimensions
of the Chase. Trinage 547 ; built at Nor

REDUCTION OK THE CURRENCY.
The papers have intimated that Mr. Mc-
Culloch is opposed to too rapid a reduction
ot the currency. For this he has been cen
sured, it appears to us, iguorantly. It is im-
him to check or arrest such re
duction. There are two ways in which the
currency is now being rapidly curtailed. The
diminution of the war expenditure. 2. The
conversion of the floating into a funded debt.
No odc will pretend to say that it m not
highly desirable and necessary to lessen the
public expenditure—in other words to bring
our expenses down as nearly as possible to a
Peace establishment. If instead of spending
two millions per day, the government can re
duce the expenditure to one million per day,
a reduction, it is said, that will soon take
place, it will either lessen taxation to that
amount, or 9ave the necessity of issuing as
large a sum in greenbacks, as has been im
posed by the necessities of the war.
Again, from the abundance of money, the
high credit of the government, aud their con
stituting a profitable investment, there is an
active demaud for every species.of public se
curities, at a premium.
Could the Secretary of the Treasury arrest
this demand if it were even advisable to do
so ? Could he place a maximum on the
price of the seven-thirties or auy other des
cription of the public securities ? If they
were to fall to par it would be competent for
him to say, (if he lias been so authorized by
Congress) that they should not be so!d
under their par, value; so that here as well
as regards the public expenditure, there is
no power to check or arrest the reduction
of the currency. In the ratio as the public
expenditure is lessened unless reduction takes
place in taxation, and the conversion of the
floating into funded debt, must be the dim
inution in the volume of the circulating me
A rapid reduction in the currency would,
no doubt, be attended by a correspondent re
duction of prices. Money would become
extremely scarce, The people would find a
compensation for the great scarcity of money
in the reduced cost of living. Much pecu
niary distress would follow as in all transi
tions from a redundint currency to one im
proved in value. I stagnation in trade, and
a limited demand for labour are among the
accomfSnimeuts of this state of things.
It may be said of what avail would it be
to the labourer, were com 50 cent 9 per bush
el, and beef 10 ceufc per pound, if be could
uot obtain the monfy with which to pur
chase s he necessarps of life. The capitalist
would be unable t <l employ the labourer be
cause he can make no profits. Until the
avenues of trade are fpopeued this stagna
tion must continue wuse than during the
war when prices were higher, but money
was more abundant.
The transition from i rar to peace is inva
riably attended with wre distress than the
transition from peace o war/ ’
In the transition 4om peace to war large
public expenditure crates a factitious de
mand tor many article of manufacture, and
even of rude produci for tile supply of the
armies. Prices advanci of many commodities,
and, although the svag.‘s of labor do not rise
so rapidly, if in tie same proportion, as the
price ot commadiies, the remuneration for
labour is.better tUn with a fall of prices, on
the return of pe»«, amidst a general stag
nation of business. While employment will
have been lessened,‘he pressure for employ
ment will have incresed. The large foreign
emigration this Sprier will have augmented
that pressure. The-evival of business with
a better demand foi labor must be gradual.
But this cannot happen before there is a re
turn to specie paynents aud the level of
prices is restored. 1, * *

ance of this popular family at the Theatre
this evening, and will scarcely care to neg

membrance of their former favorites by
crowding the house. This excellent company
is too well known in this city to netd any re
commendation from U 9. Two pleasing pieces
and a number of flue songs are offered for
this evening’s entertainment, aud their reap
pearance on the scene of their former
triumphs, can scarcely fail to be welcomed
by a large and delighted audience.
PLETHORA OP MONEY.
There has never has been a period m Fi
nancial annals in which money was more
abundant than at present in certain parl9 of
tbe United States and in England, if not in
Europe generally. Money is so cheap and
abundant at the North that there is an eager
desire to make investments in United States
securities, whiph bring a high premium.
The sums subscribed are almost fabulous.
Upwards of forty millions were subscribed
for in oue day last week, according to the
return made by the subscription agent, Jay
Cooke, at Philadelphia, while the weekly av
erage has reached $11,000,000.
But not only does thi9 surplus of money
exist at the North—it prevails also in Eng
land. The rate of interest has fallen there to
3 1-2 per cent., with a very limited demand,
and investments to a large extent are made
in consols, which bear an interest of only
three per cent.
But there is this remarkable anomaly in
the money market, that while money is so
excessively abundant at the North, it is no
less scarce at the South. The want of a
circulating medium is felt throughout the
South in all the departments of business.
The banks can no longer furnish a circulat
ing medium but to a limited extent, liaviog
all their active means withdrawn or locked
up by the events of the war. Efforts are
making by the Georgia Railroads, by receiv
ing m payment of fares, the notes of the
solvent banks, to remedy this state of thing3.
This immunity, however, of the North, from
•he effects of a scarcity of money, cannot
be long enjoyed. The circulating medium
there is undergoing rapid depletion. In the
ratio that the government expenses are di
minished will the plethora of money disap
