An Ex-Coufedvrattt Officer on Submarine
To the Editor of the Wilmington Herald :
I notice the following item in the news
papers of the day:
A Vessel Pkoi'kli.«d by Electricity.—
Ureal curiosity has been excited at Cher
bourg by a small vessel propelled by elec
irioity. The inventor, a French engineer,
has shown his discovery to the Marquis de
Chasseloup Laubaut, Minister of Marine. —
Another scientific question has been subma
rine locomotion. Several trials have been
made, but without much success. However,
an Italiau engineer, Guglielnso Giustiniaua,
has presented to the French government the
mold of a submarine boat. The French
government has directed a special committee
to examine and report upon the system.
The writer was in the confederate service
during the war, and witnessed the experi
ments with the submarine boat which des
troyed the U. 8. sloop-of-war Housatou'o off
Charleston bar. When Charleston was
threatened with the secoud attack, General
Beauregard, then in command of that mili
tary district, labored strenuously to repul e
the iron-clad fleet under command of Ad
miral Dahlgrcon. Ho was successful io driv
ing it back before it reached the iuuer har
bor, past the frowning ruins of historic Sum
teror Battery Bee, aud Fort Johnson on
ajorris Island. Had the fleet succeeded in
passing Sumter not a vessel would have re
lumed or a man lived to tell the tale of their
defeat. In addition to the three confederate
uon-clada under command of flag officer
fucker, no contemptible foe, there was a
fleet of small torpedo boats, which, acting
under cover of the smoke, would soon have
put an end to those great vessels which per
-01 tiled such an important part in crushing
he confederacy. Ih addition to the iron
lads aud torpedo boats, propelled by steam,
tin i Dahlgreen had to con
aS»inst there were innumerable
auonaiv torpedoes planted throughout the

under the water she had no connection with
the surface whatever, the necessary air to
keep the men alive and the single light burn
lug, by which their course was steered was
introduced when afloat by means of force
pumps, which admitted aud forced the water
out, creating a slight current of air. sufficient
to permit the boat, with a full complement
of men, to remain under the water at least
half an hour.
This wonderous boat, I think, was the
greatest invention of this terrible war. And
as it cannot ho denied that the offioers in the
Confederate service showed more talent and
ingenuity in the inanufactuie of torpedoes
aud other murderous weapons for modern
warfare than had hitherto been invented by
the whole world, is it not mistaken policy on
the part of the government in not pardoning
them and giviug them employment where
their geuious could be developed, rather
thau compel them to seek fame and fortune
In other land f In the event of a foreign war
the services of these men would be valuable.
And as the country is again united, and the
citizeus of the late Confederate States have
no peculiar love for those who acted so
basely to them, holding out inducements of
material aid, recognition, Ac., there is hardly
a man who ever fired a gun in the southern
cause who would not join heart and hand in
teaching those nations a lesson which would
be remembered for all time to come.
lIOW TO RESUME SPECIE PAY
MENTS WITHOUT CONTRACTION.
This is the subject of a letter addressed to
the Secretary ot the Treasury by John D.
Van Buren in the New York Evening Post,
the Editor of which paper, pronounces him
to be an eminent merchant of that city, of
much knowledge of financial subjects. The
title of the letter is singularly startling. The
resumption of specie payments after their
suspension for nearly three years without con
traction, would be one of the novelties of fi
nance. It is due to Mr. Van Buren, that an
outline, at least, of his views should be pre
sented before comment on them is offered.
He sets out with the position, “that there can
be no resumption of specie payments until
the government redeems its legal-tender
notes, or until these notes are made perma
nently equivalent to specie.” “For the re
demption, (he adds.) of these notes I respect
fully suggest this plaß.
First.—That the aunual revenue he made
sulHcieut to meet all the expenses of govern
rneut and to pay all its interest, including the
mtercst which is payable iu gold. The in
terest uow payable iu gold to bo paid iu pa
per, adding the premium ou gold at tho
time ot payment.
Second—That the whole ot the customs
revenue for the next two years, payable as
now in gold, bo pledged to the redemption
of the legal-tender notes. 'After the two
years there may or may not be a small an
nual appropriation, say $10,000,000 each
year, for the same ultimate purpose of re
deeming the notes.
Third—That the notes be not actually re
deemed as fast as .be gold comes in, but that
the gold be simply seaside aud retained by
the government or in the bauds of a com
mission, pledged exclusively to this oue pur
pose of redeeming the notes.
Two years of customs revenue would
amount to $150,000,000.
The bauks of the country have heretofore
sustained a circulation of $300,000,000 on an
aggregate oi specie in their possession of
$30,000,000, a proportion of coiu to notes of
less than one-third. This specie of the banks
was liuble also for their debts other than cir
culation. The bank notes were redeemable
at numerous different points, and were,
therefore, for the most part, not at par ex
cept at their own counters; a condition
which tended to send the notes home for re : '
demplion, limiting so much their circulation.
On the other hand, the legal tender notes
are at par everywhere, because they are a
lawful tender for debts everywhere. They
are all alike good wherever they may happen
to be. The specie to be accumulated by the
government, as I propose, will be liable for
no debts but the notes themselves. All these
characteristics aud conditions tend to keep
ing the notes out in general use, aud not to
sending them in for redemption.
It is plaiu, I think, that when $150,000,000
of coin had accumulated at the central
poiut—New York city—pledged exclusively
to the redemption of the notes, the govern
ment might tiren safely offer to redeem them
on demand, but not to cancel them—and
that the whole mass of the notes, the whole
$450,000,000, would, their legal tender qual
ity being still retained, be and remain at par
with gold all over the couutry.
Such is the plan, in brief, of this novel ex
pedient to resume specie payments. It as
sumes for its successful accomplishment, that
$150,000,000 in gold shall be accumulated iu
the treasury for tbo period of two years,
from the customs revenue, while the imports
are exceeding the exports, the balance of
trade or of payments being against the Uni
ted Stateß with Europe, aud the tendency of
gold is to leave the couutry. The average
rate of duty being 50 per cent, under the
Morrill tariff, the aggregate annual imports
for each of the years that ibis treasure is ac
cumulating would be, of course, an increased
burden of indirect taxation ou the people, as
import duties fall on consumption.
Air Van Buren thinks that by a mere fiat
of the government the laws of currency may
be ehauged. The mare resolution declaring
lugal-tendcr notes equivalent to specie can
not raise tbeir value to a level with gold, not,
in the usual mode, by reducing the supera
bundance of paper money,'but by depressing
the price of gold. This article is subject to
the law of supply and demand like any other
commodity. If it is wanted to pay debts
abroad no treusury regulation can prevent
its bearing u premium when the amount of
an Irredeemable paper currency exceeds
wh&t would have ciiculaled it only metallic
money had been employed.
It is thought by Mr. Van Buren that the
internal exchanges would absorb 450 millions
of legal-tender notes. This omits a very im
portant element—tbo various substitutes for
mouey in tbeir effi.ct ou prices—such as
checks, bills of exchange, &e. The conve
nience of legal-tender notes iu the liquida
tion ol domestic balances, cannot admit of
dispute, but, if even broutfut to the same
level of value with gold, the true criterion is ,
tbeir va’uc is in the adjustment of foreign .
balances. . . .
Tue Secretary of tbe Treasury is no doubt
anxious to resume specie I e
is pursuing the only plau that will avoid tbe
consequences ao much deprecated by Mr.
Van Huron I. e. converting the unfunded into
funded debt. This would lead to a qnuhtai
resumption of specio payments. There is a
probability of a fall iu the rate of interest and
the progressive conversion of the legal teu
der notes iuto bonds beating S per cent, in
terest would lead to a return to ths standard
iu lour or flvu years. Thu period of two
years is too limited for the purpose as pro
posed on Mr. Van Huron's plau. As prices
will uot lie reduced, for there would lie no
contraction ol thu currency, there would he
s constant stimulus to lu.|iorta aud a uheek
on exports. Tbe foreign exchange would
be uuiavorable as long ax there was this dll'-

accumulation of this metal in the Treasury.
The import of gold from California, as in
timated by Sir. Van Buren, would not tend
to lower its price, for it cannot remain in the
country while an unfavorable exchange ex
ists._ We are now discharging a part of our
foreign debt by the gold we receive from
California, occupying the place of our former
exports of cotton, lice, tobacco &c
In short the idea of resumption without
contraction, appears to us quite chimerical.
The currency can only he brought to the
level of specie by the same process by which
it was made redundant.

city to take up his residence at the North,
were made by several gentlemen. Among
whom we may mention Hon. Austin Smith,
8. H. Riddel Esq., Rev. Liberty Billings, J.

aud others. Among the guests present were
Capt. J. W. Baitow, Col. Geo. E, Gouraud,
Col. Southard Hoffman, and Mr. William
The people of Fernandina feel that in the
departure of Major Sears and Mr. Lunt they
are sustaining a loss not soon to be made

Major Sears to lake up his residence in Vine

I friends for his future prosperity and success.
THE FLORIDA RAILROAD.
j It is said that the work of “ reconstruct

: How much this road is needed has been

been detained here four days by weather,
which made it unsafe ami imprudent to at L
tempt the St. John's Bar. The Helen Getty
and Ella ventured out on Monday. Had the
; Railroad been in operation tLeir passengers

This Board is now in session, and the for

proved to belong to minors and widows who

become dis seised of their lands, and some

i The first sales were made early in the year
I 1863, aud parties who purchased at those

apparently more secure in tlieir titles, as the
j time allowed for redemption has long since
I expired. As to the sales made during the
1 present year, there is some doubt about the

i will spare no pains, nor omit to take every
