pairs of our press are completed.
" POPIhAR LOANS.
The great financial feature of our times is
fibe System of popular loans. The scheme
owes its extension, if not its inception, to the
present Emperor of the French. With the
view oT drawing from their private hoards
the sums required to defray the expenses of
the Crimean war, he offered extraordinary
inducements to parties to make investments
in the French funds, ne raised large
amounts by appeals to avarice, and to the
gambling propensities of the French people.
The Bourse became a scene of daily excite
ment—a theatre lor gambling operations in
The two modes by which he his
object were a high rate of interest, and mak
ing the stocks accessible to parties with lim
ited means, by putting their subscription
price so low as to make their purchase easy.
The French who were, before this stimulus
was presented to their desire for gain, a
hoarding people, readily fell into this adroit
scheme for rendering the small sums scatter
ed throughout the empire and contained in
numberless privato hoards, available for the
public service. If this had been all, the
scheme would, perhaps, have merited com
mendation, as making government loans the
index lo public opinion; but there was con
nected with it a series of lottery drawings,
which were an evident provocative to that
gambling spirit to which human nature is so
prone, that it requires repression rattier than
encouragement. A fatal stab was given to
England, which has raised sucli large sums
by public loan, has never resorted to any but
legitimate methods in raising tnyiey. A
higher than the usual rate of interest is the
only inducement offered to capitalists by that
government, if we except those forms of an
nuity that promise a perpetual income to
those who for this advantage are disposed to
part with their money. The baits held out
to attract the holder of small sums arc not
in fact required in England. The sums waul
ed are raised without difficulty. The system
of public loans is part and parcol of the gen
eral financial system of that country. The
jarge capitalists, the Barings, Rothschilds.
&c., are the takers of the loans, and sell
them to other parlies, whp dispose of them
in such amounts as meet the wants of the
general public. The number of small hold
ers of the British public debt far exceed those
who remain possessors of large sums.
The United States, in their recent loans,
have adopted two of the features by which
the French scheme is characterized. Tiny
have offered high rates of interest, and have
made their loans acceptable to parties with
limited means, but they have avoided the
vice of the French system, i. e., connecting
with their loans the principles of gambling
adventure, In a series of lotteries. They hare
adopted the best portion of that system pf
popular loans which attracts large numbers
to the support oi government.
Tub Roll of IToxor.— The War Depart
ment has just published a pamphlet entitled
the “801 l of Honor," giving the names of
soldiers who died in defense of the American
Union, and who were interred in the Nation
al Cemetery in the District of Coluuibia.fnim
August 3d, 1«B, to June 30th, 1805. The
entire number is 20,727, of which 15,000
were whites, Including nearly 7,200 natives
of America; 213 from England; 000 from
Ireland; 530 from Germany, and 107 from
Canada. About thirty other nationalities, in
small proportions, are represented. The un
known whites are 0,000. and the unknown
blacks, or contrabands, 5,720. The ceme
teries are kept in g'ood order, and the names
ot the deceased, as far as known, are in
scribed on the head-boards of the graves.
Trre Rebec Cotton is England.—lt is
said says a Washington despatch that the
Government docs not assent to the doctrine
of the Vice Chancellor of England, as pro
nounced in the case of the United States
against Prioleau. The United States are not
likely to concede very soon that the Rebels
are now or ever were a dt facto Government,
nor very likely ever, to consent to derive ti
tle to their own property through that im
aginary concern, and being a foreign State,
dealing with other Slates according to the
customary methods, they are not especially
likely to submit without process of attach
ment to decrees which may 'be registered
against'them by a court Os chancery sitting

CONTRACTIONS OF THE CURRENCY.
It is a singular fact that, notwithstanding
the immensity oi the i»rcaent monetary cir
culation of this country, which' far exceeds
that necessary to meet the requirements of
trade in times not affectedßy the consequen
ces ol war, occasional expansions and con
tractions of the currency are experienced.
We see the statement in a Northern paper
‘"one of those periods which have occa
sionally come over the markets during the
last four years, of a growing scarcity and in
crease in the value of both paper money and
of gold, prevails at the present time.”
Tlie trade of the Southern cities, though
comparatively limited during the few months
that have elapsed since the cessation of hos
! tilities, has been affected iu like manner, as
we have been informed by intelligent trades
men ot our city. These occasional irregular
ities of the financial system are only tempo
j The currency and business of the county
Ij g necessarily in an unsettled and feverish
condition, and it is most probable that it may
j continue so for some time. Great questions
of political economyTiave been presented to
the country by the changed condition of at
! fairs consequent upon the war, which can
only be settled alter oareful investigation and
the working of practical experiments which
will require time for their consummation. —
What llie future policy of the government
will be in regard to the currency is not
known. Congress will doubtless take the
subject into consideration when it convenes.
The power oi contracting and expanding the
currency at will, as exercised in the Treasury
Department, defeats, of course, all calcula
tions in reference tlieicto, unless a knowledge
of the movements of the government is
taken in as tho most “important clement of
It is said that there are some indications
that the government expenses have been al
ready so reduced that the currency is likely
to be gradually contracted, unless the au
thorities should otherwise decide, from mo
tives of pecuniary and political expediency,
which are at present unknown in financial
and commercial circles.
All calculations in regard to business ex
tending into the future, can only be safely
based on a knowledge of the operations con
templated by the general government. It
has been announced that there had been dis
banded since April last 782,042 soldiers, and
that 100,000 more would be disbanded in a
short time. This large reduction of the
army, though it involves large present pay
ments, mu9t have greatly reduced the annual
expenditures of the government and give
them in a short time complete and undivided
control of the currency.
The Atlantia Cahlfi. ®
The most sanguine begin to despair of the
success of the Atlantic Cable. The British
gunboat Spbynx arrived at Heart's Content
on the 6th, having left the Great Eastern and
the cable licet in latitude 53.42, longitude
20.02, on the 27th ult., since which time the
Great Eastern has not been seen. The Clara
Clarita, which left Port-nu-Basque on the
10th, has also arrived at North Sydney, and
reports that no tidings of the Great Eastern
had reached that point up to that time. It
is sain that Eugineer Everett, whose experi
ence in laying the first Atlantic Cable entitles
his opinion to great respect, believes the lay
ing of the second cable is now a failure,
though Mr. Mackey, the telegraphic super
intendent at Cape Race, hopeful.
A special dispatch to thp New York Herald,
dated Heart’s Content, 9th, says; “There
are no signs of the big ship yet, and the
cable people are beginning to give up all
hope of her arrival. There were thousands
of visitors here last week, but they are now
going home disappointed.”
Tub Guerilla Mosby. —A Washington
despatch says that J. S. Mosby, who was ar
rested on Wednesday night in Alexandria,
left on Thursday evening for his home in
Warrcnton, Ya., there to remain until the
iurtlier ordcis of tho War Department. An
other despatch says Colonel Mosby attracted
a crowd wherever he .made iris appearance,
and liis presence oe.casioned much indigna
tion among the soldiers on duty iu Alexandria,
lie came down from Warrcnton to be admit
ted as a member of tbe bar, but Gem. Wells
arrested him on tlie charge of having broken

Desperate Naval Engagement Be
tween the Brazilians and
Fearful Slaughter and Defeat of
By the arrival at Nqyv York on Friday of
the steamship Sal adit), from Rio Janeiro, we
have news from the River Plate to June 36,
which gives an account of a severe naval en
gagement between the Brazilian fleet and
eight Paraguayan steamers and light floating
batteries. The Journal de Recife, of July
13, gives the following account of this battle:
TUE IJAVAI. BATTLE AT BIACBCKLO.
The engagement took place on June 11, on
the River Parana, near Kiacbuclo, which is
about half a fegna below Corrientes, the cap
ital of the Argentine Province of the sama
The Paraguayan fleet consisted of eight
steamers and six floating batteries, carryiug
forty-seven guns, while the Brazilian squad
ron consisted of nine steamers, with sixty
two guns. The names of the Paraguayan
steamers were Tarquary, the Admiral s ship;
the Paraguay, the Marquez de Olinda, the
Ygury, tde Salto, (which, some time ago,
was taken from the Argentines,) the Ipora,
the Jtjuby, and the screw steamer Ihera.
The Brazilian fleet consist*! of the Amazo
zonas, eight guns; Jehitinhouha, 8 guns;
Belmonte, 8 guns; Araguary, seven guns;
Ignatemy, seven guns; Pamahyba, eight
guns; Beberibe, seven guns; Ypirangi, six
guns; Mearim, seven guns.
At 8 o'clock a. m. the Paiaguayan vessels
were seen to descend the river, and at about
3 they were witliiu reach ot their enemy, and
at once opened a furious tire. The Brazilian
account, Uto only' one whicli has reached us,
admits that the Paraguayans fought with the
utmost bravery, and the result was for some
time doubtful, until the Brazilian steamer
Amazonas, being converted into a mm, made
terrible havoc uinong the enemy’s fleet, sink
ing three steamers, the Paraguay, Salto and
Jcjubj’, and one floating bdttery, and com
pelling one steamer and five batteries to sur
render. The remaining four steamers, which
were likewise considerably damaged, then
The battle lasted until 4 o'clock p. m. The
Paraguayans, who supported the fire of their
fleet by a land battery of thirty guns, arc
reported to have lost fifteen hundred men of
their squadron, and five huudred of the land
battery. The Brazilians estimate their loss
at about three hundred killed, wounded and
Nothing could exceed the ferocious valor
of the Paraguayans. They all seemed de
termined to conquer or to die. Among the
wounded prisoners who fell into the hands of
the Brazilians was Ruble, the commander of
the Salto, one of the sunk steamers, and a
brother of the commanding general of the
Paraguayan army in Corrientes. His wounds
were tenderly dressed by the commander-in
chief of the Brazilian fioet, Barrosa, but Roble
with his teeth tore off the bandages from his
wounds, preferring death to captivity. Most
of the commanders of the Paraguayan ves
sels are among the dead. The whole artil
lery, ammunition, banners, and an immense
war material, fell into the hands of the vic
The Brazilians had to abandon the Jequi
tinhouha and the Belmonte was likewise dis
abled. Tlie Amazonas, Parnabyba and sev
eral other vessels were badly damaged.
The Brazilians flatted themselves with the
hope that tne loss of the Paraguayans is ir
reparable, as it is supposed tlmt, besides the
four steamers which escaped, they have only
one more steamer and two floating batteries
at Assumption. The Brazilian fleet, on the
other hand, was at once to be reinforced by
four steamers and two gun-boats.

States Consul at Trieste, and the Hon. I. W.
Betir, United States Consul at Messina, ac
companying a circular relative to the pre
cautions which have been taken to prevent
the cholera from extending its ravages over
entire Europe. These documents have been
placed in tlie hands of Collector Draper that
the statements relative to tlie epidemic there
in contained, and the means of prevention
enumerated might be taken into considera
tion. It is probable that the quarantine
laws already regulating tlie sanitary affairs
in the various ports of tlie United States will
be enforced with redoubled stringency.
A despatch says that owing to the im
mense crowd at tlie President's House, on
Saturday last, the -floors wore opened to all,
the President holding a general levee. Hon.
E. H. Eastman, a lawyer of Nashville, has
been invited by the President to become his
confidential Secretary, in order to facilitate
the disposition of a good; deal of business
brought before him. •
An additional number .of Southern Post
Offices have just been opened.
Ford's Theatre is now being metamor

out, and an iron floor is about being laid, in
order to render the building fire-proof as far
as possible. The Government teams are
employed jn taking the refuss material, and
in a short time everything will be in readi

Rebel Arch ires.
The Secretary of the Navy lias directed
that masters and ensigns of the regular navy,
and midshipmen serviua on board any naval
steamer, will hereafter be taught thoroughly

their present tour to recuperate their shatter

fifth year, and in good health, Increasing
age has told on them somewhat, making
more gray their hair, and adding to the
wrinkles on their faces. From a conversa

children, one six sons and three daughters,
and the other six daughters and three sous.
All the children ate perfectly formed. Eacli

THE HI KMAfc OF THE WILLUJI \ELSOY
A KBMARKAIIEK •SORT —A WOMAN TWO DATS
AFLOAT OK A SPAR WITH AN INFANT.
In the steamship Bellona, (apt. Dixon,
Just arrived at this port, were two steerage
passengers, concerning whom a thrilling in
cident is related. Franz Meyer, aged 23, and
his wife, Anna, aged 19, from Canton 80-
leure, Switzerland, were passengers in the
ill-fated ship William Nelson, recently de
stroyed by tiro at sea. In the contusion in
cident to the efforts to save life, the husband
and wife were separated. The husband was
picked up by one of the ship's boats, which
was soon fallen in with by the brig Mercury.
Tlie w ife, young and </<(-•*-«/*, was not dis
couraged at the uncertainty of her husband's
fate, but prepared for her own safety. Self
preservation could not suppress her womanly
instincts so far as to ignore tlie feeble cries of

Late on the second day the same vessel in
which her husband was saved, having ceas

and her little charge. Eventually tlie family
were landed at Havre, The Prus
sian Consul at that port look the charge of
the infant, and its parents were supposed to
have been lost with the wreck.
Many ladies of Havre interested them
selves to enable this brave young creature,
with her husband, again to venture to cross
the Atlantic in search of a Western home.—
Destitute ot everything necessary as an out
fit, having lost all, the kindness of the ladles
at Havre was doubtless most acceptable, and

documents establishing the truth of the facts
How a Rebel Preacher was Received
in Chicago.— A dispatch from Chicago to the
Cincinnati Gazette of the 17th, says:
Rev. John W. Pratt, Professor in the Uni
versity of Alabama, at Tuscaloosa, preached
in the Central Presbyterian Church last even
ing. In introducing him, Rev. Mr. Brown,
pastor of the church, rose and said: “Rev.
John W. I’ratt, Professor iu the University of
Alabama* at Tuscaloosa, will preach to you
this evening. Professor Pratt was an old and
intimate friend of mine in years goue by. He
was a secessionist, but an honest one on
principle. Professor Pratt preaches this even
ing at my special request. He consented re
luctantly, learing you would not be willing to
hear him, but 1 told him that as the rebellion
was over, and they had submitted to the au
thority of the Government, and as he was
now from heart a loyal Union man, there
was not a man or woman of any congrega
tion but would welcome him, aud gladly
bear him preach. If I am correct in this
judgment, will you please assent to it by
arising to your feet.”
Instantly the congregation rose to their
feet, and it was easy to see by the light in
the eyes of the men and women'that the wel
come was from the heart. The Professor
saw and felt it. Ilis sermon was one of great
ability and beauty ot diction, aud was deliv
ered with earnest eloquence. In his sermon
he said: “I was honest. I thought we were
right, and put my all, of money, pow er and
influence, into the Confederacy. But the
Confederacy is gone ; the theory of secession
is exploded; slavery is dead, and I am con
tent. God saw we needed punishment and
disciplined and punished us. I think we
shall now be a better, happier, and more
progressive people than heretofore.”
