WHAT IS DEEDED .(I. ifIVHE.
The Southern people have tviines-etl with
pain the frequent yind severe iqjpca nueuts
of thcii fidelity and sin-erity with r*t ret ce
to the subject of reconstruction,
made by a portion of the North
ern press and some of the leaders ol
the Republican party; and among the va
rious plans suggested to disabuse the niiuds
of the Northern people of the false iinpits
sjons made by the wicked misrepresentations
complained o£ is that of calling a Conven
tion of the Southern States. But we do not
think the calling of a Southern Convcniion
would be the proper agency to employ for
this end. The very calling of such a body
after what has occurred, would be looked
upon with suspicion. It is doubtlul, indeed,
if it would be permitted to assemble. If,
therefore, a proposition of this kind
should be introduced in our State Conven
tion, which,we are credibly informed is like
ly.to occur, we hope it will be promptly re
There is no doubt that It tee whole trutli
were presented to the people of the North,
relative to the feeling, purposes and hopes ol
the South, we should at once secure the con
fidence and kind feelings of all whose good
opinions are worth having. But the Con
vention plan is not the one in our judgment
to accomplish what is so much desired. No,
the true policy of the South, as suggested by
the Richmond Wbig, is that which the great
British Statesman and orator proclaimed for
himself tp “live down the judgments of ig
norance and the calumnies of tnalice."
Under the benign and protecting rule of
Andrew Johnson we may have an opportu
nity, by the blamelessness of our action, to
apply an effectual contradiction to all slan
ders, and seal forever the lips of our malevo
Let us show in our county and State con
ventions, in our Legislature, and in the tone
and temper of the press, that W 9 frankly,
fully, and unreservedly accept the fortune
that Providence has ordained for U 9, aud
That we repose on the Constitution and the
Union for cur future well-being, and we
i hall not be long ia getting rid of the vexa
tions of which we complain. Let our con
ventions and tbo people establish what Mr-
Jefferson and other great founders of the Re
public demanded, “equal and exact justice
for all men," and all the evils from which we
suffer, as we sincerely believe, will cure
themselvbsf We hope the Georgia Conven
tion, in the fearless discharge of its high
functions, will come fully up to the standard
of policy so clearly indicated by the Presi
dent of the United States; and to Bhow what
the President asks at the bands of the South
ern people to strengthen him iu the execu
tion of his liberal purposes for their politic <1
restoration, we subjoin a letter from a prom
inent citizen of A abarna, which appealed iu
a Mobile paper, who had just r turned ftom
Washington,where lie bad an interview with
,Mr. Johnson. He writ* s:
“From what I heard at Washington, and
from ail sou ices, I will stat hat it ia ex
pected of the South that She wit

organic law of eacli State.

anty by her Constitution, c vil rights t • the
treedmen; political rights, 6uch as suffrage,
fitting on juries, &c., are not expected to be
conferred on them at this time These are
matters to be left to the consideration of the
But the freedom of the Africau race and
the guarauty of their civil rights are pre
requisites to the reconstruction ot State gov
ernments and their readmission to the Union.
5 Toe question, then, is narrowed down to
this: Will we make a constitutional declara
tion of the freedom, of the Africans and a
guaranty of their civil rights, or remain in
definitely under a militaty government ?”
The whole South is to-day united and
compact in the support of Mr. Johnson.—
Each day increases the confidence ot our
pet pie in him, and hence our convention
may turu to him full of trust and the desire
of vigorous co-operation.
pRESBTTtBiAS Notices.— The Presbytery

The Synod of South Carolina will, meet at
Salem Church, Sumter District, on Weiues

The officers of the General Assembly of

lufbovemknis is Tcbkky.—The London
Morning Post observes that duting the four
years the present Sultau has been on the
throne, thero has been as great an improve
ment in the financial and material state of
Turkey "as the disorganization which pre
sented itself on his accrssion, and the inter
nal wars in Montenegro and Syria could ad
mit of. The revenue has increased from un
der £IO,fJOO,OQP in 1861 to near £14,000,000.
The deficits of successive years appears to
have been followed by a tangible surplus,
the figures for 1864 presenting a sum of
£18,684,000 for receipts, and the expenditure
amounting to £13,885,000. Nominally, Q 0
doubt, the debt of Turkey has in the mean
time largely increased, but the fact remains
that the bulk of this increase has been much
more apparent than real.
-Increase or Colored Prostitltion in New
Orleans. —Among the other evils which the
atxillUon ot slavery and the disorganization
of the social system in the South tas brought
about, is said to be a very great increase in
prostitution among young Colored girls. In
New Orleans it is estimated that mere are
at the present time af least twenty colored
women aud girls who live by licentiousness,
where there was one at any time prior to the
war. The New Orleans Bee says, “they can

THE NATIONAL FIXAW4 KH.
There i> no more intricate brawn of econ
omic ,1 science than tlie* rise ol priors. Tbt to
ire two general causes for the rise of prices:
1. A change in the relation of demand to
supply, 2. The increase of money without a
corresponding increase of commodities, or,
which is the same thing, a corresponding in
crease in the uumher of exchanges to be
effected by money- -the rise in the first case
being called a real nnJ in the second case u
nominal rise. It has always occurred to ns
that it would greatly contribute to the clear
ness aud simplicity of the subject if ibis dis- j
ti. ction were abolished, and that every rise .
of prices were viewed as the effect of \ j
change iu the relation of demand to supply j j
;<>r what iak s pi- c.- when what is called a ]
nominal rise t ikes place from an increase in i
tlie quantity of imm y without a c rrespond- |
ing i. crease in the quantity of C cumodities ? j
I lb. re not an augmented demand from an
! increase of putchasiug power? The effect of
such a genera iz an n as we have suggested
would be that whenever a rise of pric s look
place tlie sole object of inquiry would be.—
Has the rise occurred Iroin a deficiency of
supply or from an increase of demand ?
from natural or artificial causes, Irom, (in the
case of the produce of the soil,) droughts,
fl >ods &c., &c., and iu *he case of increased
demand tlie opening of new markets, a
stimulus given to unproductive consumption
during war, from au issue of paper money,
or the disc >very of new mines of the pre
Much light has been thrown on this subject
in England at the beginning of the present
C n ui y by the publication ol “Tooke’s History
ol Prices.” Mr. Tonke was a London merchant \
of large experience, who combined with bis
practical knowledge all the lu format ion that
t deuce or theory could confer. His exam
ination of prices embraced upwards of sixty
articles, aud extended over a considerable
period of time. The result of his iuquiry
was the refutation of wbat bad been received
as au indisputable principle». e., that every
rise of prices, unless clearly traceable to a
deficiency of supply, was preceded by an
undue increase of money. He proved that
the converse of this proposition was true in j
a great majority of cases—in other words,
tbi-t tbe rise of prices followed aud did not j
precede tlie increase of money, particularly
paper money—as exemplified in the issues
of the Bank of England. The ndvance in
tbe prices of many commodities Mr. Tooke
proved to have been the result of commer
cial Causes, or a chauge in tbe relation of
demand to supply, having no connection
with the state of tbe currency whether paper
Now, it is evident that if money has any
agency, by au increase of purchasing power,
ou prices, it is attrioutable exclusively to an
angineuted demand or increase of competi
tion amoug purchasers, aud consequently
(alls within the description of a chauge in tlie
relation of demand to supply, being an in
etease in tbe demand for the article or art
icles which have thus risen.
It will be easy to tnaks an application of
these principles to existing circumstances.
Prices have risen during the war and con
tinue high from all the causes hy which
chej' are advanced in periods wherein specu
lation is active and periods iu which it is
inoperative. It would lead to error to sup
pose that when prices are artificially en
hanced, from the undue increase of paper
mouey, they are enhanced generally
and simultaneously, instead of partially and
successively. So to whatever class or de
scription ol commodities the additional pur
c lasing power is applied tbe rise of price,
supposing there is no cause counteracting
its influence, will be in the first in.-tance lim
ited. Tut- advance will extend gradually to
other commodi ies for which there necessari
ly atises an lucreasc oi demand aud in*
creased competition. Iu this mauuer the
advance will gradually extend to every class
of commodities as tbe effect of additional
Circulating medium, Increase of purchasing
power or increase C nipetition unless it is
counteracted by excess of supply. Let us
now extend the aplication. When hostilities
commenced tbe country was in a state of
commercial tranquility. The effects of the
speculative year 1857, when all the Banks
in IbeU S. had suspended, had subsided. The
requirements ot the public service produced
the necessity for revenues mure rapidly than
it was possible to-organize a system of ade
quate taxatiou dr place loaus on the market.
Eaper money, the usual expedient iu such
conjunctures, was resorted to, as a conve
nient and ready resource. The enlargement
of the volume ol paper money led by a na
rnral process to the suspeusiou of specie
payments by the Banks, rendering gold and
silver articles of merchandise, and leading to
.peculation iu them, as well as iu ad
articles of sale and purcase that grave pro
mise of pr* fit. This was the first step iu
the advance of prices and depreciation of
The next stage in the advance was the
conversion of productive into improductive
labor. The withdrawal of so large a body
of laborers from industrious pursuits to those
of war—necessarily destroyed the balance
between production uud consumption of a
healthy character, producing an artific.nl
scarcity in certain branches of production,
and an enhancement of prices, aggravating
the rise produced by an over issue of paper
uioDev. The effect of destroying the natu
ral equilibrium between production and con
sumption from this excessive use of paper
money, was counteiacted, in some degree by
the discovery and application of labor
saving machinery to the various processes
of industry. Agriculture as well as manu
factures was stimulated by invention! that
couutervuiled the results which would have
followed the withdrawal of so great a quan
tity of productive, aud its conversion into
unproductive lalor. Taxation wa9 the next
step in the advance of prices. It became
necessary as a support to public credit us
well as a souics of additional Income. The
effect was, of course, as is the result of all
taxation, to enhance prices. It would thus
appear that there were three causes which
have led to the rise of prices. 1. Excessive
issues of paper money. 2. The Deceease of
Productive power. 3. Taxation. There
may have been natural causes which all, cted
particular commodities, that had their effect
on the ptices of those Commodities, which,
acliug iu the same direction with increased
demand, would co operate with it still far
ther to stimulate pi ices, as there may have
been natural causes to increase the supply,
w hicu may have, as we have shown, court
teracud toe tendency to an advance. The

This most estimable family, previous to

Gen. Braxton Bragg was in the city on his
way to Lowndes county, in this State. We
are glad to see him looking in more robust
health than when he had the cures of the
Confederate Army of Tennessee on his
shoulders. Like so many others, General
Bragg has lost all in the cause upon which
he slaked all. He is in good spirits, never
theless, being one of those natures of cour
age and euergy that are irrepressible. His
high professional acquirements and uncom
mon administrative abilities, ought to open
to him a field lor usefulness. We know of
no one better adapted to take charge of any
great associated enterprise wherein method,
exactness, discipline and untiring zeal and
energy were required. He is not a man to
be idle in this busy world, and his opportu
nity must come. Meantime, be is turning
his hand to the culture ot the soil, aud tries
this winter what can be done with Voluntary

The General is hopeful of the political
future, and like every other intellectual

special Deodand to the South aud the whole
