Oue of the most remarkable financial feat
ures ol the period is the system of popular
loaus. The great success which has attended
the loans of the United States government
since the present war has had its source in
three causes; 1. Patriotism; 2. The abund
ance of money ; 3. The high rate of interest
ofL-red by goyerumeut. There is no popular
movement more striking in financial history
than the general impulse to subscribe to the
government loans manifested by our people.
This has its source, of course, in patriotism
It is materially aided, however, by the abund
ance of money, compared with the demand
The war has throvvn’uppn the money market
large masses of loanable capital, which the
advantageous terms offered by the govern
ment have attracted into the channel of public
loans. This has been again aulcd by the
popular conviction of the sufficiency of the
national resources to meet all the national
engagements, combined with an abiding trust
in the good faith of the government-
This new financial feature has enabled the
United States, if not to borrow money with
more facility than heretofore, at least to call
forth from their recesses large amounts of un
employed capital, which separately are unim
portant, but which, in the aggregate, amount
to large sums.
It was the Emperor of the French who
tried, in 1864, this plan of popular loan, on
a scale commensurate with the public wants.
He raised large sums to defray the expenses
of the Crimean war by popular loans. The
success of the plan will induce its general
adoption hereafter, where circumstances favor
its adoption. +^+
FLUCTUATION, IN THE VALUE OF
The gold market ofNew York exhibits all
those variations that might be expected
from the nature of the elements by which
that value is influenced. 1. The demand for*
gold to discharge commercial indebtedness,
our imports exceeding our exports. 2. The
demand for the payment of duties. 8. The
demand of parties who are visitiug Europe,
either transiently, for pleasure or busiuess, or
permanently with the gains they have made
by the war.
W AgamsTthe'se demands is to be set- I. The
foreign export of American production* —our
cotton, rice, Naval stores, constituting the
staples of the South, and the flour, wheat,
corn, provisions, petroleum of the North,
the export of which will bring down the
price of bills and reduce the value of gold.
2. The large and increasing immigration
from Europe, each emigrant bringing with
him a portion of gold. It has been compu
ted that the average amount brought by each
emigrant before the war was SISOO, and the
aggregate sum, taking one year with anoth
er, equal to an annual addition to our num
bers of 300,000 and to our wealth of $450,000-
000. The average amount this year has
been estimated at SGO per head, and the sum
total at $360,000,000.
This is a powerful element in counterac
tion of the tendency to an export of gold,
which will tend to keep down the price, but
we may expect fluctuation as one or the oth
er of these causes predominates. * * *
Ftom the present aspect of affairs in Mex
ico the complication is becoming more, in
stead of less, difficult. The authority of Max
imilian is very far from being consolidated.
The insurgent* forces are still In sufficient
strength to give his government much trou
ble. The Church party constitutes a serious
source of embarrassment. The remoteness
of that Protective power to w’hich the new
Emperor looked for the maintenance of his
authority renders that authority very preca
rious, and the necessity of his abdicating
would prove very damaging to the French
It is evident that no branch of his foreign
policy has produced so decided an opposition
as his resolution to build up an empire in
Mexico under the guise of a Protectorate.
The measure has not proved to be popular
among the French people, if it has even
found favor with his adherents and partizans.
Nothing but immediate and decided success
would have reconciled the French people to
a scheme that appeared to involve greater
chauce3 of failure than of success. Os all
the nations of Europe the French are least
able to bear military reverses, or that pro
tracted warfare that attends the waste of re
sources without the compensating advantage
of glory and extension ®f territorial domin
ion. ' V
The soldiers at the Ira Harris General
Hospita in Albany have evinced a great deal
of ingenuity in their efforts to perpetuate the
memory oi Abraham Lincoln, by the erection
on the grounds of the hospital of a monu -

The following communication appears in
the Loudon Star :
7. King-street, London, May 6, 1865.
To lit •> Excellency Andrew Johnson, Presi
ilent of the United States of America :
Dear Mr. ” .mdekt. —Never in the
course of a lc g rife have I been so appalled
and distressed as when the news reached me
of the brutal Assassination of our belolved
P.-esident, Abraham Lincoln. But, bowing
in reverent submission to tirat Divine will
which permitted the accomplishment of that
atrocious crime, I tbank God that mantle of
our murdered Chief Magistrate has fallen
upon one so worthy as yourself to fill the
executive office in this hour of our Repub
From the w ise, courageous and patriotic
course you have pursued from the time
when, in 1860, the traitors who designed the
overthrow and destruction of our govern
ment first developed their evil intentions, I
feel that I may congratulate my fellow coun
trymen on the accession to office of one em
inently qualified to finish the work so nobly
begun by his predecessor. Under your rule, .
through Divine Providence, the Union will,
I trust, enjoy more enduring peace and
greater prosperity than it ever before has
The change of opinion with regard to
American affairs which has been witnessed
in England duriug the past saw weeks is oue
of the most remarkable circumstances con
nected with the history of our great struggle.
It is not a hundred days since scores ol Bri
tish newspapers vied with each other (I
grieve to say) in abuse of “the late United
States ’ —“the babble republic”-—or “the ig
norant, bloodthirsty Lincoln.” Now, with,
scaicely an exception, these journals are
unanimous in enpressiug their respect for in
stitutions that have passed unscathed through
so fierce a trial, and in lamenting yhe death
ot Mr. Lincoln, not only on account of the
atrocity ol the assassin’s crime, but because
they cau at length discern in . his character
evidence of wisdom aqfl virtue lor transcend
ing the tolly and wickedness they were torra
ly wont to lay to his charge.
This change is so gratifying that I am half
disposed to lorgive those who, for foijir years
past, have abused every act and deed of the
Federal Government and Its loyal people,
whilst bespattering the resfel Confederates
with the most fulsome praises.
Nor is it less pleasing to notice the disposi
tion, Mr. President, to do Justice to vour own
speeches and polio*’.
Your utterances since your installation
have received the most favorable and com
plimentary remarks, and your reply to the
British Miuister at your late interview has
called forth the mo?t lively expressions of
Your pacific words have dispelled any
apprehension of war between the two coun
tries that may have troubled the public mind
since the victories vouchsafed to our aims
have given unmistakable evidence of a nearly
and successful termination of the conflict.
With the blood of the martyred Lincoln it
would seem as if all our sympathy with the
rebel cause has been forever washed away.
Where once it was the subject of a taunt, it
is now accounted an honor that a man sym
thises with the North. Fears have been ex
pressed by some lest, a burning sense of
private wrongs should impel you toward too
severe a course of action In dealing with the
rebels. I have answered that none need fear
that you would be guided by any other rule
and principle than a determination to
discharge faithfully your public duties, and
aid in preventing, by the exercise of the
powers of the law and justice, a recurrence
of that which you justly stigmatise as “the
greatest of crimes,” a spirit of revenge will,
I believe, have no place in your heart.
I confess that I have had tears lest, excited
beyond measure by the dastardly assassina
tion of the man who was at once their be
loved President and Commander-in-Chief,
the Federal soldiers in the South should be
tempted to commit excesses by way of retail
iatiou. The fact that in the city of Colum
bus, Ga., lately occupied by the Union
troops, I have a large family of children and
graud-children, as well as what little prop
erty has been left me by the tyrannical lead
ers of the rebellion, makes me moat keenly
alive to the possible danger that even now
may be befalling those most dear to me. My
heart is sad indeed when I think of the mis
eries that may visit their innocent heaths as
the penalty of the iniquity of others. Should
it be in your power, Air. President, to extend
to tliemyour protection, it will be grafclully
accepted by one who, in a foreign laud, is
well known to have done his humble part in
sustaining the cause and honor of m be
loved—and now, I thank God, mofe than
ever noble—eountry. /

The Colossal Bird or Aladgascab. —ln
the year 1850 a French ship captain named
Abadie, being on the southeast colst of Ma
dagascar, observed in the hand of a native
the shell of a gigantic egg, whick had been
perforated at one of its extremities and used
for domestic purposes. Mr. Abadie, being
attracted by the unusal dimeaaions of the
egg, set to work to procure specimens of it,
and ultimately succeeded in obtaining from
the natives, besides the specimen first seen,
two others, one of them found in the debris
of a recent land slip. The other was disin
terred from a recent alluvitl formation, to
gether w ith some bones ol apparently no less
Upon these objects-, which were shortiy
afterward forwarded t<f Paris, the late Prot.
Isadere Geotfroi St. Hilaire founded anew
genius and species of extinct struthious birds,
allied to Dynornia, for which he proposes
the name aEpyornis Maximus. The most
striking character of the eggs of the aEpyor
uis is their enormous size. The largest of
the two received at Paris measured length
wise no less than two feet and ten inches in
circumferences, and breadthwise two -feel
four iuebes in circumference. Its extreme
length in a straight line was twelve inches.
Prof. Geoffroi Si. Hilaire estimated that it
would contain teu and one-eighth quarts, or
nearly as much as six ostrich eggs. A large
ostrich egg, we may mention, measures
about six inches in length, being little more
than half that of the iEpyornis. —Quarterly
