SA VANN AIL MOM'AV, DKCKMBKK 4. Hfit.
Today, the Legislature of Georgia assem
bles in the Capitol at MilledgeviHe.
As the first legislative body under the new
Constitution, charged with the delicate and
trying responsibility of re-adjusting and shap
ing the Statute laws in consoousnce with
the political, social and economical changes
consequent upon the late revolution, its pro
ceedings will be looked for with a degree of
interest never experienced before.
A knowledge of this fact, with a just ap
preciation of the colossal proportions of
tbe task to be performed, will have the effect,
we doubt not, to incite both branches of this
new body to a prompt, faithful and harmoni
ous discharge of the obligations imposed by the
confidence of trusting constituencies and the
actual existence of a crisis, which, it not met
in a calm, national and conservative spirit,
may inflict upon us the most direful conse
quences, and from which we might not recov
er for years to come.
As journalists having constant intercourse,
through the medium of our exchanges, with
all parts of the country, we deem it proper
to call attention to the startling fact that we
are advised by conservative journals of the
north that, owing to certain causes originat
ing mainly, it is stated, in the actions of our
Conventions, there is a manifest reaction
with tbe people heretofore well affected to
wards the South adverse to President John
son’s policy of immediate reconstruction.
And, indeed, those well informed at tbe
South, those accustomed to note tbe signs of
tbe times, cannot have failed to detect of
late the marked change to which our at
tention has been directed. It is confidently
asserted, too, by many conservative Repub
lican prints, such as tbe New York Times
and the Washington Chronicle, supposed to
be iu tbe confidence of the Administration!
and therefore to speak by authority, that Pres
ident Johuson reveals, in interviews with
various delegations and individuals, evidence
of decided dissatisfaction with the “recov
ered States. ” Leading journals of the dom
inant party, which has control of both
branches of Congress, heretofore disposed to
yield muqh iu the interest of magnanimity to
their “erring” but restored countrymen, have
been gradually changing tront. Members of
tbe coming Congress, also of the dominant
party, are beginning to foreshadow on tbe
stump «nd through the press a more rigor
ous policy on the part of that body than I
either the North or the South have antici
pated. In confirmation of this we have hut ’
to call attention to tbe significant utterances t
of Speaker Colfax, made Intely, in Wash- *
iogton, a synopsis of which appeared in this 1
paper a tew days since, and the singular
intelligence with regard to the changed prin- t
ciples oi the President, conveyed iu the deß- <
patch of yesterday from our Milledgevilie s
correspondent. We hope, however, that 8
the unwelcome tenor of this telegram will ‘
be greatly modified, -if not entirely nega- 1
tived, by other and subsequent advices <
from the Federal Capitol, as it is hard to be- <
lieve that President Johnson, who is so t
pre-eminently distinguished for consistency I
and manly firmness lias changed front in the I
manner and to the extent indicated. •
Knowing, as wo do, that our people having *
long since been convinced of the folly of op- I
posing aDy obstruction, however small, to fu- <
t are peace and quiet, and that they are wil- i
ling to abide in good faith by the result of 1
the conflict and are eager and desirous to ac - |
cept of the terms accorded to them by Pres- i
idem Johnson, we confess to having observed i
tbe untoward changes referred to with min
gled emotions of auxiety and regret. We
fail to perceive the grounds upon which this
belief of the Northern radicals that there has
been any real change of attitude on the part
of the South is founded. They have been
misled upon the subject by circumstances
wholly deceptive, and for which the masses
of our people should not be held responsible.
Such being the case, however, that the sen
timent of the north toward the South is just
now undergoing a perceptible chauge, self
interest, if nothing more, dictates that the
latter bestir itself to discover the causes, if
any, of this gradual revolution, and having
done so, put forth strenuous efforts
to arrest it.
And to this end, we zealously adjure the
members of our legislature so to act upon
the political questions that may come before
them as will have the effect, not inconsistent
with the honor and interests ol the State, of
re-assuiiug the North and of strengthening
tbe power of the President in his noble aud
patriotic efforts to secure to the Southern
Stoles a restoration of their political rights.
If the Legislature falls short of this great
object in the discharge of its high duties, its
session will be worse than a failure; it will
be productive of positive evil, not only to
our State, hut to the entire Southern people.
And why so ? We answer, because the con
servative men of 'the North, as well as the
President,have, all along, looked to Georgia
for co-operation in the work of reconstruc-
tionShe has been regarded for years back
as the leading Southern State, and heretofore
has been held up as a kind of examplar, to
her sisters of the South. To ignore a concilia
tory policy will result to keep our represen
tatives out ol Congress-will perpetuate the
power ot the extreme radicals of the North—
dmppomiourtrieod., delight our enemies,
and blight the hopes of our own people.
Let each Southern State conic squarely up
to the friendly requirements of the Present
and then we shall have done enough to satis
fy any reasonable man who desire, to see
be country united and in peace ; and, then,
if the plan of reconstruction fulls the rwpon
sihH.ty for the failure will not rest U t„m ihi
Hmith, but upon those who are so, king U
drive her people to that point when uatun
as well as reason rebels

The geueral impression is, that tbe pro
ceedings of tbe early part of the session will
be marked by scenes ot intense excitement,
if not of violence. Should the question of
admission of Southern members be immedi
ately considered, and not |>oslponed until
after tbe Christmas holidays, as suggested
by a prominent member of tbe House ot
Representatives. The postponement is
urged on the ground that time will |l>e al
forded tor an interchange of views and com
promise propositions which might lead to the
happiest result, in the attainment ot such au
accommodation of antagonistic views as
would give assurance of a dispassionate con
sideration and sentiment of the subject when
formally introduced to the attention of the
Senate and House. But we have little hope
or expectation that the proposed expedient j
will Ia; adopted, as the radicals are so eager
to make war upon the President, that they
can scarcely hold in until the body organ
ises. Mr. Stevens, who is the coDgressiftial
champion of the extreme fanatical wing ol
the Republicans, and has been in Washing
ton for several days, talks with the utmost
freedom respecting the course he and his
friends intend to pursue. He denounces the
policy of the President without stint, says a
Washington dispatch, and will take an early
opportunity, on the assembling of Congress,
to enunciate his own views, which of course,
will be rabid and threatening. We are glad
to hear thnt there is considerable pressure to
prevent his re-appointment to the chairman
ship of the Committee on Ways and Means.
A telegraphic dispatch, which appears
elsewhere, announces the probable re-elec
tion, without opposition, of Mr. Colfax of
Indiana, as speaker of the new Congress,
and we aft not aware of any opposition to
the re-election of Mr. McPherson as Clerk.
ARE PRESENT HIGH PRICES TO BE
We offered recently some reasons in favor
of tbe conclusion at which we have urrived,
that prices will continue high for sometime
to come despite any possible contraction ot
the currency. This conclusion is founded
on the following indisputable principle; that
money prices depend, after a system of pri
vate credit is established, more on the degree
of its extension than on the quantity ol
money in circulation, so that there would be
no certaiuty that we should return to normal
prices after the contraction of the currency,
unless there should be at the same time a 1
contraction of private credit, which would 1
lead to revulsion attended by a considerable 1
fall of prices.
One of the evils of the artificial system into 1
which we have been led is the constant in
terference of the government with those
spontaneous laws of currency thnt sooner or 1
later rectify its irregularities.
The first wrong step was the adoption of
the system of legal tepders aud the organizu
of the National banks. The period of re
sumption was indefinitely delayed by this
system. As has been well observed by the
“ Commercial and Financial Chronicle,” of
the 18lU ult., one of the ablest of our tinau
cial journals. “The premium of gold being
commonly regarded as an index of deprecia
tion, and ns gold ranges lower or higher, tbo
purchasing power of our greenbacks is sup
posed to be greater or leas. It is on account
of this popular belief, which is partly right
und partly wrong, that so much iuterest lias
beeu felt in tbe task of regulating the price
of specie. By keeping gold down, it was
imagined the value of the currency was kept
up, however large might be tbe issue of le
gal tenders. This is as much as if a gardner
ordered to keep his conservatory at a given
tempeiature, should neglect his fires and de
vote his chief attention to tampering with
the thermometer. Every one who has learned
the simplest rudiments of financial science
is aware that depreciation of the currency is
a sign of redundancy. The shrinking of the
value of the paper dollar is caused by the fact
that there are too many paper dollars afloat.
If this paper were redeemable in coin on de
mand, the depreciation could not advance
beyond a fractional limit; as the notes would
be presented lor payment and the volume
afloat would contract itaclf to its just dimen
sions. If, however, the notes be not re
deemable, there is no such spontaneous limi-
tation of the issue. The elasticity with
which a redeemable currency adjusts itself
to the money exigencies is gone. And as
these monetary requirements vary greatly at
different times, the irredeemable volume of
the currency, from its rigid inelasticity, may
be insufficient toward the close of the year,
and redundant three months later. Now un
der our paper money system, the price of
gold, if uninfluenced except by the currency,
might be a true measure of tbe depreciation
and redundancy of that currency. But the
trouble is that as gold coin is our internation
al medium of exchange, it is from this and
other eunscs exposed to a number of perturb
ing forces, which modify its price indepen
dently of the movements of our domestic
currency. Hence, the price of gold would
not be an infallible measure of depreciation
in all cases.”
It is impossible to comprise in a smaller
compass the true theory and practical opera
tion of an irredeemable paper currency.
The interference with the spontaneous ac
tion of paper money is the means of giving
it prolonged life, and the cause of perpetual
fluctuation in its value. The source of this
interference is the belief that the devia
tions from the normal value of gold is in
fallibly indicated by its prices in paper.
The many causes to influence that value are
entirely overlooked in this assumption.
Gold being "an international medium of ex
change" i» one of the “perturbing forces"
by which its value is affected. In illustration
of ihi. fact, the controversy that took place
in England between the ImlUonisU and auti-
bullicin'nts, affords a preguaut example.—
The former contended that there bad been
depreciation and redundancy during the
sti*|wnsi<m of specie payment* liy the bunk
of England, from 1707 to lA'J'J The latter
insisted that the nolee of that institution had
not undergone depreciation, and that the ad
venco in gold had taken place from the gov
ernment demand to pay anhahllea to it* allies
on tlie continent and to fill lit military chests

merket that has caused such great fluctua
tions in it* value.
In a financial lecture recently delivered in
New York, by Mr. riilas M. Stillwell, some
1 ot the most obvious and universally admitted
principles of currency are ignored. Ilia lec
j turc evinces a clearer comprehension of the
causes of our existing financial embarrass
ments than of the remedies for their correc
tion. Iu his attempt to make the legal tender
notes a xuccedaiieiim for specie be has tail
ed utterly'. We had conceived that there
could be no difference of opinion among
sound thinkers, that specie payments waq an
indispensable condition of the value ot a
paper currency. Mr. Stillwell thinks other
wise. Let es examine his reason. He is
evidently an anti-bullionist. lie dentes that
there lias been any depreciation of the cur
rency. He insists that the premium on gold
is exclusively produced by the demand for
gold iu discharge of our toreigu obligations.
Now, we do not deny tbe influence of tbe
cause to which Mr. Stillwell solely ascribes
the premium ou gold,*/, e., the . balance of
trade against the Uuited States, but no
one can be so blind as not to perceive that
an operative cause of great influence has
beeu ihe.reduudancy of paper money, instead
of limiting his attention to one of the causes
only for the premium ou gold, to wit: au
adverse balance of trade, if he had given due
weight to the large issues of the government
and the undue extension of private credit he
could not have avoided the conclusion that
there were two causes for the existence of
the premium on gold. 1. The redundancy
or over supply of paper money. 2. The
extra demand for gold to discharge our for
Mr. Stillwell assigus great influence to the
law of supply and demand in explaining tbe
phenomena he has undertaken to elucidate.
His position is, that there can be no super
flux of paper money while there is a demand
for more circulating medium, overlooking
(he facts that the government demand can
not be considered legitimate of arisiug from
the regular requirement of business, the
wants of the government being the only
measure of its issues. 2, That the exten
sion of credit is very often the effect of specu
lative excitement, which cannot be deemed
the result of legitimate demand any more
than the wants of government. Demand is
not, therefore, the test that irredeemable
paper money is not excessive during its is
sue by government, nor that demand is the
tost, should a spirit of speculation exist ex
tensively, it being fostered by extension of
credit, tbiough bank notes, bills of exchange
cheques or book debts.
There is another portion of Mr- Stilwell's
lecture which leads to a conclusion that
seems a logical deduction lrom his principle,
that legal tenders may be adequately substi
tuted for specie in. our internal exchanges,
but is not consistent with the principles of in
ternational commerce. It is true that we
may dispense with foreign trade if the
conditions on which it is to be prosecuted is
the occasional export of gold, to discharge a
balance of foreign payments, disarranging
our moneyed relations. But this involves
the saeriflee of our foreign commerce. If
the United Slates Were isolated no adverse
balance ot trade would arise, aud uo premi
um ou gold, the effect of a dernaml to liqui
date a foreign debt. The panacea ot Mr.
Stillman, therefore, for the disordered con
dition of our currency when it becomes ex
cessive, as compared with foreiga currencies,
would lead almost to the destrueliou of com
merce—the loss of our foreign trade or
such au abridgment of it as would at all
times' preclude the necessity of exporting
gold iu payment of a balance of trade. It
seems to be forgotten, iu this theory, that
this supposed disadvantage involves the
beneficial use of that foreign capital that as
sists iu the development of our own resour
ces. Our forests have been cleared, our
cities peopled, our internal communications
extended by the use of foreign capital-by go
ing into debt with foreign countries—by bor
rowing capital at low rales of interest, aud
obtaining credit for merchandize ou cheaper
terms than we could produeo or manufac
ture it ourselves.

Dear Sir, —I have been afflicted many years with
severe prostrating cramps in my limbs, cold feet and
hands, and a general disorcterea system. Physicians
and medicines failed to relieve me. While visiting
some triends in New York who were using Plantation
Bitters, they prevailed upon me to try them. I com
menced with a small wine-glasslul after dinner. Feel
ing better by degrees, in a few days I was astonished
to find the coldness and cramps hud entirely left me,
and I could sleep the night through, which I have not
done for years. I feel like another being. My appe
tite and strength have also greatly improved by the
use of the Plantation Bitters.
