great kindness and generosity by many of

Mr. B. will l»e recollected as the distin
guished Senator from Louisiana, in the United
States Congress at the breaking out of the
revolution ; and subsequently as Secretary
of State in the Confederate Cabinet. He was
recognized as being, perhaps, the most pro
found jurist in America, and is withal a lipe
scholar and an eloquent orator, without af
fecting the extravagant graces of oratory, his
speeches on grave and important subjects,
always enlisted the deepest attention of those
he addressed, betraying, as they did, pro
found thought, and generally showing the
bearing of all sides of a question.
In Mr. Davis’ Cabinet on the great measures
that came before it, no voice was more po

eaving the country from greater errors than
An Inxsbestino Debate. —An interesting
debate in the South Carolina legislature on
the bill to regulate the relations of the freed
men is reported by the Columbia correspon
dent of the New York Herald. An amend
ment was proposed to make marriages of
white and colored persons illegal and void,
and called fourth remarks from several gen
tlemen, but was finally rejected as super
fluous. The most exciting part of the dis
cussion, however, was over a proposition to
strike out the provision requiring the masters
or mistresses of colored apprentices to teach
them some trade or business. This was
strongly supported by a member represent
ing the mechanical interests of Charleston,
who contended that the proper place for the
negro was on the plantation, and that if they
are allowed to learn trades, they will deprive
the white mechanics of employment. Other
members maintained that 4hey bad no con
stitutional right to block any industrial
avenue against the l'reedmen, and that white
men, in fearing to trust the test of their su
periority to the negro by allowing the latter
to come into rivalry with them, are in effect
conceding that they do not consider him
really their inferior- The proposition to
strike out was finally laid on Jhe tabic by
70 yeas to 30 nays.

TO BE MAINTAINED!
This is a question that is exciting touch
attention in commercial circiea at the North.
The New York Timea observes that “the
poorer class think high prices are often
owing to the extortionate demands made by
dealers in the wav of profits ; and lesser
manufacturers tell their costumers that the
unparalleled high wages of operatives, no
less than the high price of material, accounts
for the unaccountable cost of goods. Pre
sently we get into a circle where everyliody
is to blame, and nobody 19 at fault —where
the original producer must have high priceß
to balance tbe cost of his purchases ; the
operative must have high wages to balance
the expense of bis living, and tbe manufac
turer must have high prices to meet the cost
of material and labor—where each finds
fault with tbe other, while in reality all are
working toward the same end, and under a
We do not deny that some of the causes ot
high prices spoken of—such as the redundant
currency, the taxation, diminished produc
tion, aud illegitimate speculation—have had
an influence in this direction; and as some ot
these causes are in process of removal or
modification, we may see a favorable action
within reasonable time.
There is another influence more subtle and
more apt to be overlooked in popular dis
cussions, but which is of late years assuredly
affectiog values in this country as well as the
rest of the world, aud which renders it un
likely that, even-with tbe enlargement of the
spheie of machinery, prices will again settle
down to anything like the old standard. We
refer to the effect that is beiDg produced by
the recently vastly increased and ever in-
creasing volume of precious metals. The
enormous aggregate of gold that has been
contributed by California and Australia with
in the last sixteen years to tbe currency of
the world, has necessarily caused a change
and a diminution in its value as compared
with all other values ; and though for a time
this was not apparent or was obstructed by
counteracting tendencies, it has, within the
last few years, become palpable and promi
nent in every country ofboth continents.”
Experience as well as tbe principles of
science plainly indicate that there will be
no general reduction of prices for some time
to come even should there be a large reduc
tion in the volume of paper money. The
state of prices is not alone dependent on the
quantity of money in circulation, whether
paper or mctaiic, but on the state of
Before entering upon a more detailed ex
planation of the causes that influence prices,
let us explain tbe difference between a rise
of prices from an increase of the circulating
medium and an extension of credit. Let us
suppose a period anterior to tbe formation of
banks of issue when the only currency of a
country was gold and silver. If the amount
of the metals, constituting the circulating
medium, was three hundred millions of dol
lars, being adequate to effect Hs exchanges,
and one hundred millions were added, the
produce either’of its own or foreign mines,-
prices would rise precisely in proportion to
this addition made to the curreuey. The
surplus would be exported, being in excess
ol the currency requiremeutsof the country,
in exchange (or foreign commodities which
were in demand.
Let ns now suppose a more advanced
stage ot the same country when banks of
issue were established, which would add an
additional one third to the circulating me
dium. This would lead to the export of the
same amount of the precious metals, beiug
an excess of what could be absorbed by the
domestic exchanges of the country. Prices
would still father advance until an equilibri
um took place between the precious metals
of the country which had thus increased its
stock of these metals and foreign countries.
While there was a free interchange between
coiu and tbe paper money which had been
substituted the-excess is quickly carried off,
beiug beyond the wants of the country for
purposes of money.
Now let us imagine the same country go
ing to war and rear lved to issue paper mouey
for a portion of its expenses. As long as the
quantity issued could be absorbed by its re
ceipts for taxes and duties on imported mer
chandise, there would be no redundancy,
whether or not the government issue was
exchangeable for specie, but as soon as this
limit was passed, and the issues of the gov
ernment were not convertible into specie,
depreciation would commence, and with
every successive addition to the already ex
cessive quantity of money, prices would
further advance until a revulsion took place,
and prices fell, so as to restore the equili
Now should banks of circulation be engag
ed iu adding to the circulating medium by
the issue of their notes in discounts or loans
while the government is also adding to the
quantity or paper money, there would be a
double or two-told addition to the currency,
aud prices would Correspondingly advance,
or should the government be contracting
their issues while the banks are increasing
their advances in discounts the same results
would follow t there would be a rise of prices,
but the rise would be the effect of an exten
sion of credit, bills of exchange, cheques,and
book debts supplying the place of bank notes.
It is, therefore, not absolutely necessary that
there should be additional issues of paper
mouey to produce a rise of prices. Tbe ex
tension of credit, has the same effect on prices
that attends an increase of the currency.
Docs not this explain the phenomena that
we now witness of a large reduction of the
government expenditure and tlm conversion
ot its unfunded iuto funded debt, notwith
standing which general prices are advancing ?
Are not the National hanks extending their
discounts, and counteracting the effirls of
the Secretary of the Treasury to place the
country in a position to resume specie pay
We have not taken Into view the result of
taxation in continuing high prices, as tbe
effect may not be general , or only affect that
class ot commodities which are subjected to
additional imposts. Increased duties on im
ports lull on tbe consumers of tbe imported
merchandise, in the ratio of their consump
tion. Internal taxes affect those, whether
property or income tax, who pay them, iu
the first instance, and finally diffuse them
selves over all classes of the community, on
the principle of what is called the incidence
of taxation, but as the tax is diffusiable, the
rise of prices would be only, to a limited ex

11l these days of “straitened means," it
were well to consider that “Chanty" be
gins ”st borne,” and to adopt such meas
ures as will bring relief to the suffering wbo
now wander homeless, as well as to brighten
with hope, those many, many homes now
darkened by affliction, penury and want.
It is useless to deuy that there are say
such, for daily observation but presses home
the tact, that “ our poor are suffering ,” and the
repeated calls at our doors, of those who
come to solicit aid, however scanty, for
their distressed ones, awaken our sympathies
and raise in our hearts the question—how
are these to be orovided for ?
Though we may Dot be able materially, to
(teller the condition of tlie poor, yet if earn
est hearts and willing hands are employed,
some provision may lie made that will miti
gate the extremity of suffering, especially
during the winter just at hand.
With this object in view, a goodly number
■of the ladies ot Savannah, desiring to do all
in their power to relieve the present destitu
tion aud suffering iu our city, as weil as to
organize some plan of systematic benevolence
for the coming winter (and as much longer
as may be deemed necessary,) and believing
also that a greater amount of good can be
attained by concert of action, than by indi
vidual benefactions, organized, October 31st,

They have apportioned tlie city into
twelve districts, and appointed a committee
of ladies for each district, to seek out, visit
and relieve the needy from the funds of the
Society, and when they are insufficient, to
solicit contributions of food, clothing or
money. These committees are to be changed
every month at the regular meetings of the
society, when they will make report of tbeir
labors. In order to establish a fund, tbe sub
scription has been fixed at SI.OO per annum.
During the month now closing—the com
mittee have been employed in distributing a
supply of clothing, sent out by the “Ameri
cau Lnion Commission of New York city,”
for the poor of Savannah; the distribution
of which has disclosed suffering and absolute
want, to an extent unknown in our city be
fore, aud which they have been able but
partially to relieve.

Tlie article of most prominence, entitled
“Southern ludiscretion,” is tolerably fair to
wards tbe South, and is little marked by the
formet outpouring of wrath against this sec
tion. “ French Morals and French Politics”
is a clever essay or dissertation in which the
peculiarities of morals, manners and opin
ions are traced to those great social changes
which were born of the revolution of 178#.
Tbe Reviews are discriminating. That on

pleasant literary gossip, but why so many

tical? Tbe Art criticisms are marked by a
just appreciation of works of art, particular
ly Painting, as they have always done- The
correspondence is very readable.
“thk round table.”
The leading article iu this number, enti-.
tied ‘‘Plain Talk with General Grant" is a
warm and merited eulogy of that officer,
hie capacity, his heroism, his magnanimity,
but tiuds fault with him for consorting with
men in New York who have no social stand
ing, with men who are no better than
what are called sportsmen. The article on
“Children’s Books,” contains some just
remarks which may be read with profit by
those who are entrusted with the education
“Political Clubs in New York” is an in
structive paper on the influence of political
clubs in the cities of New York and London.
The Foreign correspondence (letter from
Florence) contains another elaborate paper,
in which it is attempted to be proved that
the States never had any original rights—
that their sovereignty and independence wus
a myth, that the publie documents that ush
ered in and sprung out of the Revolution, weie
inexplicit in idea, aud indistinct in expres
sion, and tbe constitution might be re
written with more definite ideas of confed
erated government, aud is no more of a
Federal compact than were ttie old Articles
of Confederation. The “Literary Notes”
arc highly interesting. “History by the
Yard,” is a review of Abbott's historical
works, in which copiousness, in the critics'
opinion, is no equivalent for the absence
of historical merit. Thu other critical pa
pers evince ilisle aud acumen.

In consequence of the great stagnation of trade in
the manufacturing districts of England, through the

obtain a gold watch, diamond riug, or any set of
jewelry on our list, for One Dollar.
Send 25 Cents for Certificate.
In all transact ions by mail, we shall charge for
forwarding the certificates, paying postage and do
ing the business, 25 cents each, which must be en
closed when the certificate is sent for. Five certillc
ates will lie sent forsl, eleven for $2, thirty for $6,
sixty-five for $lO, one hundred for sls.
What the Press Say of Us.
The Lafayette (liul.) Daily Courier, March 18,1865,
says: "A better selected, more varied or fashionable
assortment of jewelry cannot be found on the conti
nent than Arrandaie A Cos. are now offering. Messrs.
An'aiidale & Cos. occupv a high position in commer
cial circles, as men tutirely above the common trick
ery of trade. Their statements may be Implicitly
relied upon, both as to the character of their goods
aud the manner of disposal. Ladies especially, iu all
purls of the counlry, ure reuliaitig handsome profits
as agents, aud if any of our fair leaders desire to in
terest themselves in the enterprise, ihey may do so
with perfect confidence. ”
