An Ex-Coufedvrattt Officer on Submarine Vessels. 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 mli r '.

When 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'- furenoe of relative prices Irctwecii the United .Status aud foreign vouutiius.

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. [Our Florida Correspondence.] LETTER FROM FERN AN DINA. Persona/—The Florida Railroad—The Sales of Lands by U. S. Tax Commissioners—Xassau County’s Representative—The Lumber Trade. Savannah Steamers. Major Alfred F. Sears who has had charge of the construction of Fort Clinch,dur ingtbe past three years, goes North by the steamer which takes this letter, having been relieved by Cupl. Bartow, Corps JEngineers, U. 8. A. The Major, by faithful devotion to the in terests of the country ; by the urbanity and courtesy of his manuer in Ids intercourse with the people ; his strict integrity in all business transactions, and his willingness to do kind deeds, lias won the regard and es teem ol our citizens. And at u complimen tary dinner to which he was invited on Wed nesday evening, remarks expressive of the high esteem in which he is held, and of the regret felt at the prospect of his leaving the 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. H. Douneliey, 8 K. Burst, W. B. C Duryee aud others. Among the guests present were Capt. J. W. Baitow, Col. Geo. E, Gouraud, Col. Southard Hoffman, and Mr. William P. Lunt. 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 good. I learn that it is the intention of Major Sears to lake up his residence in Vine land, N. J. Into whatever community he | may go he will add much to its moral and I social character, aud will carry with him the ! sincere and heartfelt wishes of hosts of I friends for his future prosperity and success. THE FLORIDA RAILROAD. j It is said that the work of “ reconstruct ! ing” the Florida Railroad lias been cotn } rnenced on the inland part of the track.— : How much this road is needed has been | manifested during the past week when four | steamers all bound to Jacksonville, the St. j Marys, Helen Getty. Ella, and Fannie, have 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 ! and freight would have, or could have gone | on, to say nottiing of the mails. There is no \ difficulty ou oi r Bar. St. Marys andFernan j dina Bar can be safely crossed with almost ' any tide aud weather by vessels of almost ■ any number tous burthen. And, during the | late gales it has been demonstrated [that no i harbor on the coast can compare for safety with ours. THE TAX COMMISSIONERS. This Board is now in session, and the for mer residents and land owners are pressing ! their claims for redemption. Several have ! succeeded, the property claimed having been proved to belong to minors and widows who ' owned the property iu their own right ante ! rior to the rebellion. Some Freedmen who i purchased snug little estates at the tax sales j here by the decision of the Commissioners become dis seised of their lands, and some I speculators are trembling iu their shoes.— i The first sales were made early in the year I 1863, aud parties who purchased at those 1 sales and now hold the certificates, are 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 ! quieting of the titles. The original owners i will spare no pains, nor omit to take every | advantage of the law, in order to regain their ! property, while the purchasers are deter \ mined to mainlaiu possession at the “bat's i end” ot the law. The Commissioners have a difficult task to perform. NASSAU COUNTY. of which ' Fernandina is the port of entry, lias felt reasonably proud that her delegate, Hon. Erasmus D. Tracy was selected by the Convention to preside over its deliberations, That body has adjourned. Os its action we cannot speak, as we have as yet seen no report of the doiogs. LUMBER MILLS. We shall have soon, as I bear, two lumber mills in operation. One by Messrs. Free man &, Cos., the other by Messrs. Gourand & Hoffman, of New York. Capt. Freeman is : well known as having been the commander of the U. S. brig Perry, which was statioued iu this harbor during the blockade. Audit is to the energetic action of such men that I we look with confidence for the advancement ;of the business interests of the city. With j abundant resources of capital, and, with de i ternrined enterprise, the gentlemen I have named are bound to succeed. j SAVANNAH ANO KERNANDINA. ! Communication with your city is becom ing more frequent. The steamer Finnic, Capt. McNulty, came in on Sunday, being an addition to the line of steamers which now ply regularly on the inland route. Ot the Fount am, Capt. Castuer, the Helen Get ty, Capt. Ingraham, the Etla, Captain Row laud, and the Government steamer St. Marys, Capt. Ward, I have before spoken. Their commanders, and tbeir spiiit ot accommoda tion aud aiteDtion to the comfort of their passengers is patent to all who travel. The Helen Getty, nee St. Johns, has lately added twenty-six state rooms to her deck ; and the Fountain has been undergoing thorough re pairs and renovation. lam pleased to be able to say that these boats nay well. They ought to, for better men than Castner and Ingra ham cannot be found. And Capt. Rowland, of the Ella, in his two trips hither has won the good opinion ot his passengers. And, speaking of these steamers, I ought to say that to Mr. Purser Campbell, of the steamer Fountain, much credit is due tor the care and comfort ot passengers, and for the freight of consignees. Tac steamer Fannie, which arrived here on Sunday, lelt this Tuesday afternoon for Jacksonville. U- I Convention or Colored PtorLK. —The N. Y.
