Annual Message of the Mayor—-The Con
Aition Os the City, Financially and
Mayor May of Augusta read his annual
message before the City Council on the morn
ing of the 6th inst. It is an able document,
and its exhibit ol the present condition and
prospects of our sister city cannot fail to be
interesting to our readers. The following
paragraph relates to
Thk Finances of the Citt
A brief retrospective glance at our finan
ces may prove interesting to ns now, and be
of use to us in our future. With our present
situation you are familiar, as it is before you,
but aliusiou to it cannot be without interest
to the public, who do not generally avail
themselves of all accessible sources of infor
mation to tiie same extent as do those to
vhose hands they commit the management
of their affairs.
The financial condition of the City Coun
cil, hi fore the close of tile war, was good.
tVe bad, in what then were considered as
assets ol value, a sufficiency to meet all of
our engagements,and to carry on the munic
ipal government without burdening the
people by taxation to any considerable ex
nt, for a lengthy period. We had a sink
ing fund, in what was known as Confederate
Bonds and currency, of over two hundred
and fifteen thuusano dollais; and there was
in the Treasury as a general luud, in similar
bonds and currency, more than one hundred
and forty thousand dollars. The bonds of
the city, due on the Ist of May of the pres
ent year, amounted to eighty thousand dol
lars, ami the amount of interest owing by us
uu tiie Ist of April previous, was one hundred
thousand dollars. Thus, in round numbers,
our resources were upwards of three hun
dred and fifty thousand dollars, with which
to meet liabilities ol one hundred and eighty
thousand dollars. During the war, the
Legislature authorized us to issue cintnge
biirs to the amount of one hundred thousand
dollars. Os these old bills there cannot be
many out at this period ; as large amounts of
them have been absorbed in taxation, and
very many of them have been redeemed by
the certificates of indebtedness lately issued
by ttie city.
The war ceased, and the assets of the
City Council became utterly worthless. The
financial collapse was so sudden and so un
expected, that no preparation conld be
made to avoid its consequences. We were,
therefore, lett, as all other Southern com
munities were lelt, without any means with
which to carry on our operations. It takes
time to raise money from taxation, even
w hen the people are possessed of money,
but when, as was the case with our people,
they have none, it is necessary to devise
some expedient by which to continue the
government and provide for the expenses.
Our only resource was the issue of certifi
cates of indebtedness by the city ; of these
there have been put in circulation,. from the
beginning, about oue hundred and thirty
tie.maud dollars. Large amounts, however,
have been paid back to U3 by taxation, leav
ing. probably, at this time iu the bauds of
the people, not more than seventy thousand
dollars. The amount of our iudebledues in
bond* past due and coupons for interest on
bonds is not over eighty thousand dollars.
Tne immediate debt ot the City is about
one hundred and fifty thousand dollars, in
cluding bonds past due aud coupons just
mentioned. The unpaid taxes will amouut
to this sum at least.
It will thus be seen that our inconven
ience can only be temporary, and results
from the sudden and utter worthlessness of
our assets in the Treasury, With a little
time to recover from the shock, we shall re
sume at least, our usual condition. As far
as the bonded debt of the city is concerned,
Uieie need not be felt the slightest appre
hension. The City of Augusta has ample
properly for the discharge of every dollar of
tier liabilities, if that property was put
upon the market even in the present unex
ampled state of depression. Her people en
tertain no idea ot repudiation ; they have
always maintained tier fair lame iu all finan
cial matters, aud that lame will not be suf
tered to be tarnished by the present genera
For some time to come, the rate of taxa
tion cannot safely be reduced. There are
certain expendituies which must be sus
tained under any system ot municipal gov
ernment, and these expenditures cannot be
provided tor in any other mode than bj' tax
ation. But one thing should not be lurgot
tou—that in all our calculations we must
look to the most rigid economy ; we must
aid our people in their earnest efforts to re
store our 'olden, prosperity ; we must eu;
courage and assist the development of new
branches ot industry : we must act officially
tu relation to outfay, ns we would act in
dividually. Many of our people have sus
tained great losses and privations, and
though they niauitest a cheerful spirit and
determination to retrieve the disasters ot the
past, yet they wilFexpcct us to relieve the
pressure upon them to the utmost of our
The Mayor goes on to speak of the con
dition of the various municipal'institutions—
the police, the streets, the jail, etc. He
makes the following remarks upon the sub
ject of '
The subject of charity must continue in
the future, io demand Bom us, as it has de
manded in the past, an attentive considera
tion. I can say, with a lceiiug of pride that
the poor of no city with which 1 urn acquain
ted, have been better taken care of, ot been
the recipients of greater kindness, than the
poor of Augusta. This fact is eieditable to
our councils, and redounds to the honor of
our people of means, who have not withheld
the helping hand in the hour of distress.
The Augusta Purveying Store is .now is
suing rations weekly to live hundred families,
lumbers o! these, in a short time, when the
demand for labor increases, and the currency
ot the country attains a more general circu
lation, will be enabled to sustain them
selves, but at present they require our assis
tance, and they must have it. To take care
ol the poor, in a proper manner, will require,
in my esdtuation, an outlay of one thousand
dollars per mouth.
Ot the advantage of the Purveying store,
I need here say nothing. Its workings are
familiar to you and to our citizens, who
have watched them, with a critical eye. from
its inception to the present day. You and
they have behold it at all times, aud know
its value. I lrazaid nothing in saying that
no other plan than the one upon which it has
been, and is conducted, could have accom
plished one half the goodthathas been done,
and I trust the institution will not be allowed
to languish for want ot a generous support..
TAX OS COITUS.
I recommend that, alter the 10th instant,
the tax of ono dollar per bale on cotton
brought to the city he rescinded. It is our
policy, aud should continue to be so, to en
courage the bringing to our city of all the
products of thecouutry which can be brought
here, and to luster all enterprises which
promise to advance our prosperity. The im
position ol the tax stated doubtless prevents
much cotton from being brought to our mer
chants and warehousemen. The tax should
be collected on such cotton as is now in the
city, or has been stored in the city at any
period since the Ordinance was passed. It.
is highly expedient to abolish a restriction
upon the legitimate trade and commerce of
the city. The stock ol cotton now on band
should be ascertained and the tax collected
upon that and upon all cotton stored iu the
city since the passage of the Ordinance. I
also recommend that tbe Ordinance referred
to, be so amended as to impose a double tax
upon ali parties who have failed or refused
to comply with its provisions.
As the Chief Magistrate of the city, 1 have
been in frequent communication, personal
and written with the various officers of the
military forces of the United States who
have been located in our midsl, and I can
bear cheerful testimony to their unitorm ur
banity and consideration. They generally
seem to have been actuated bj’ an earnest
desire to perform the arduous duties belong
ing to their positions in a manner calculated
to give our citizens the slightest possible an
noyance, and I believe the intelligent senti
ment of the entire community will bear me
out in the declaiation. The commander of
the State, Gen. Steedman, has won the good
opinion of all, by his frankness, and the de
termination which he has, on all occasions,
evinced to discharge the duties he owed to
the Government with a proper respect for the
position ot our people. The officers in the
subordinate departments have likewise mani
fested a commendable spirit.
In concluding his message, Mayor May
announces his determination of retiring from
the Mayoralty of Augusta with the expira
tion of the present term, and says :
We have passed through more than lour
years of terrible trial. Every nerve has been
strung with suffering, every eye has been
moistened with tears. Tile period of inles
line danger and convulsion has passed away,
and, I mist in God, forever. We can now
come together, and while we give a back
ward glance at tbe path marked hy our sor
rows, we can form new aud peaceful resolu
tions for the coming days. Those days we
can make days of cheer. We have a glo
rious laud, as yet but partially developed iu
its magnificent resources- We have waim
hearts among us, whose every pulsation is
for the happiness and prosperity ot our whole
people. We have energy and perseverance
that need but to be exerted to deliver us from
the thrall of despondency, and crown us
with success. We have all that is needed to
make a people prosperous and happy ; and
woe be unto us if we fail in our mission.—
Let us not brood over our losses, but rather
profit by ihe experience of the past. Let us
trust to time to heal the gaping wounds
which war has made, aud to our own exer
tions to retrieve our disasters. So shall we
gain the approbation of our own consciences,
the willing acknowledgment of our worth
by the world, and the blessing of Divine
Tike Yancey« Hill Difficulty.
The Montgomery Mail has given the par
ticulars of this difficulty, from which it ap
pears that the correspondent of the Nash
ville Banner romances considerably.—
The facts of the case are as follows, says the
Mr. Yancey and Mr. Hill did have a diffi
culty in the Confederate Senate, not, how
ever, upon a discussion of the Navy bill,
but of the Supreme Court bill. Mr. Y. had
spoken ; Mr. Hili in reply reviewed Mr. Y T ’s
record iu a styie which was regarded as of
fensive by Senators. Mr. Y. arose when Mr.
H. had taken his seat, and remarked that as
other Senators desired to speak on the ques
tion, he would not consume the time of the
Senate then, but that, at a proper time, he
would endeavor to do justice, both to the
Senator from Georgia, and to himself. He
desired only to say, then, that the assertions
of the Senator from Georgia, in regard to
what he was pleased to term his autobio
graphy, were false, and he knew them to be
false when he made them.
Mr. Hill responded, quickly, from his
seat, that he threw the ialsehood back in
his face. Upon motion, the Senate went
into secret session. Mr. Yancey then ap
pealed to adjust the matter, but reiterated
what he said aud took his seat. Thereupon
Sir. Hill, unexpectedly to Mr. Yancey, or
any one else, threw a heavy glass ink-stand,
which struck Mr. Yon the side of his face,
bruising it, and causing the blood to flow
profusely, but not knocking him down, or
doing any serious injury. Mr. Y'ancey then
rushed at Mr. Hill, but was prevented
from striking him, and here the fight
A committee was appointed, and retired,
to report what was due the Senate for a
breach of decorum. Whilst they were out,
various speeches were made to reconcile the
parties. Mr. Y T ancey was, for a long time,
inexorable, but when appeals were made to.
him as to the effect such a rupture would
.have upon the cause, he was disposed to
yield to the importunities of friends. To ag
gmvate.tlie matter, the committee reported,
censuring both parties—Mr. Yancey lor the
language he bad used, aud Mr Hill for
throwing the ink-stand.
Mr. Y 7 ancey protested against the report
to the last; but it was finally accepted by
the Senate, and was afterwards reconsidered
and withdrawn, upon condition that he
would not prosecute bis claim for personal
redress any further, he reserving to himself
the right to reply to Mr. Hill’s speech in
public, which he afterwards did, in a pow
erful and overwhelming effort. The Senate
was engaged from about noon till midnight
in the settlement of the affair.
In regard to the cause of Mr. Yancey's
death, this was, according to the same
authority, from inflammation of the ltid
neys—a disease to which he had been pre
disposed, and even a martyr for many years.
During his last illness bis pains were excru
ciating, but were borne with Christian res
ignation. At times, during bis delirium, be
broke forth into eloquent impassioned
speeches in regard to those political themes
which were ever dear to his heart. He died
loyal to his convictions, forgiving his ene
mies, and committing his soul to the mercies
ol God. •
The story of the jNashville correspondent
is false in every particular.
Perilous Feat oe a Gymnasi.— The cele
brated gymnast, Leslie, who has out-Blon
ained Bloudin at Niagara Fails, has added a
new leaf to his laurels. On Saturday even
ing last, he gave us a wonderful exhibition
of indomitable pluck and nerve, in liis daring
serial feats. The fearless manner in which
he sprang from the car of Prof. Lowe s bal
loon, during a detached ascension, at au
altitude of two thousand feet, and dangled at
the end of a forty foot rope attached to the
car, has never been equalled. As the balloon
ascended higher and higher, he attempted
teats all the more daring and reckless. Mr.
Leslie is a man of quiet manners, and very
gentlemanly in appearance and bearing. As
we have no desire to see so plucky a than
become a sacrifice to his own daring, we ad
vise him to never attempt again so foolhardy
an undertaking as that of Saturday evening
last. Let him rest on his laurels, at least
until someone equally as daring as himself
has surpassed his marvellous leat.—A 7 . Y.

In the Episcopal Convention in Philadel
phia on Saturday, the House of Bishops sent
into the House ol Delegates a message an
nouncing that they imd agreed to regard
Bishop Wilmer ot Alabama, as the regular
ecclesiaslieal presiding officer of that diocese,
overlooking the irregularities by which he
was elected aud consecrated, but with the
understanding that his case should not he
considered a precedent. Bishop Wilmer
presided over the Alabama Diocese during
the WTD. Hence the allusion to “irregulari
ties.” Considerable other business ol a routine
character was transacted, but nothing of
general inti rest.
The Westliche Post, the Radical Gerruuu
organ ot Si. LouD, is authorized to say that
President Johnson did not say to Governor
Fletcher of Missouri, iu a recent conversa
lion, as has been alleged, “This is a white
mans country, and by God, while lam Presi
dent, it shall be a White man’s Government.” j
The report is incorrect, aud it was not Gov. j
Fletcher who authorized the papers to pub
lish it. As far as Gov. Fletcher remembers, |
President Johnson used about the following
words : “I am iu iavor of the white man ;'
or, “I belong to the white man’s party.'
The latest from Mexico is to the effect that
the Republicans were conhdeut of the early
arrival from the United States of material as
sislauce for Juarez, when a vigorous assault
was to be made upon the Imperialists who
would be, without question, compelled to
give up both Monterey and Matamoras.

Stuart, Mauager of the Winter Garden, and
