Nbllbubl Cotton Convention*
A Memorial has been presented to the New
Yoik Chamber of Commerce, by Mr. A.
Penfield, of the Treasury Department, to
promote the formation of a National Cotton
(crowing Convention , that measures may be
taken by which a crop of cotton may be
growing next year of equal quantity with
that grown with that of the year before the
war, viz : 5,000,000 bales, which, at gold
prices, will be worth $1,000,000,000, export
ing three-fourths of which, as, in that year
will return us $600,000,000 to $7,000,000 \
inducing such a state of the foreign ex
changes as will naturally and inevitably bring
specie payments by the spring of 1867, with
out the usual financial revulsion attending
such a crisis.
Our paper circulation proper is now more
than quadruple that of a normal Slate. But
with such a crop of cotton next year we shall
have solved another great problem in nation
al finance, viz : “Me maintaining specie pay
ments with u much tower amount of paper circu
lation than has ever before prevailed in such a
We have literally copied the language of
Mr. Penfield as a curiosity of its kind to
show what random guesses and vain expec
tations prevail on this subject. That it is
possible to grow 5,000,000 bales of cotton
between this and the spring of 1867 is one of
the delusions which beset the calcula
tions of Northern writers. We agree with
Mr Penfield that if the Southern States are able
between this and the spring ot ’67 to export to
oreign ports three fourths of 5,000,000 bales
that it will induce such a state of the foreign
exchanges as will bring back specie pay
ments without the usual financial revulsion
attending what is called a crisis. But there
are several contingencies involved in such a
result as he foreshadows, not to speak
of the conditions of supply, that render
his calculations in the highest degree
visionary and impracticable. We need
not advert to the disorganization ot labor and
the waste of capital a3 obstacles to the
growth of cotton, a disorganization and
waste that will not be repaired, if at all, in
less than five years. The loss of stock, of
agricultural implements, of seed, of all the
appliances to agriculture that denote intel
ligent and successful cultivation, are not the
only impediments. Nothing evinces in a
more striking manner, the little thought that
Mr. Penfield has bestowedfon this subject,
than to expect a crop of 5,000,000, bales to be
produced immediately after a devastating
war,in the short interval of one year, that had
reached that large aggregate in nothing short
of half a century !
We have alluded to certaiu conditions of
supply. Those conditions it is needless to
say are the two elements of production,
labor and Capital. How are they to be sup
plied ? They must concur in the work oi
production. If all the other wants are fur
nished, stock, implements, seed, transports
tion, from what quarter is to come the ad
vances for the support of labor before tin
crop reaches market ?
We have also alluded to contingencies,
Mt. Peudfield assumes that cotton will cou
tinue to bear the high value it does at present
Who can define the limits ot fluctuation
of price dependent on speculation and sup
ply and demand. Who can predict the in
fluence of the seasons, the foreign markets,
political events &c.
We concur with Mr. Penfield that to es
cape a financial revulsion our exports must
overbalance' our imports. We have seen
many nostrums of late for the cure of our
distemper of paper money, but they are
sucb remedies as will aggravate the disease.
Men who claim practical knowledge ot fi
nance have among other recommendations
suggested the accumulation of gold, until
gold and paper bear their former relations to
each other, overlooking the ordinary expe
dient of •bringing them nearer to a level by
reducing the volume of the former, hut of
increasing the quantity of the former. And
it is to be effected by piling up gold in the
treasury in contempt of those laws of trade
that determine the ebb and flow of the pre
cious metals. What length of time could
it be supposed gold would remain at rest af
ter being accumulated in the banks or any
other depositaries with an adverse foreigu
exchange. In fact those who un
dertake to enlighten the public
overlook the fact that there can
be no material contraction of the currency,
and, of course, no resumption of specie pay
ments until the foreigu exchanges turn in our
favor —in other words, until our exports ex
ceed in value our imports. Our fiscal docu
ments do not discriminate between the nomi
nal and the real exchange in their exposi
tion of the subject of the currency. It scarce
ly need be stated by us that an excess of
paper money and consequent rise of prices
have no effect on the exports or imports, the
change of prices being ouly nomiuai; hut
the undue extension of credit by which prices
are raised, tbaougb speculative excitement,
tend to produce an uutavorable real ex
change, and it is not until we cousume fewer
foreign luxuries that we aliall return to that
normal condition to which Mr. Penfield al
ludes. The flow of gold is outward, and can
never become inward until we export a
greater value than we import. This is the
real obstacle to a resumption of spicie pay
As regards the further remark “that with
such a crop of cotton next year, we shall
have solved the problem of national finance,
viz: the maintaining specie payments with
a much larger amount of paper circulation,
tbau has ever before prevailed in such a con
dition we will venture to affirm that we are
as far removed from tbe solution of that pro
blem as at any period since tbe invention of
paper money. To effect tbe purpose indicated
there must be a flagrant violation of the laws
ot currency. One of these laws is that the
quantity of paper circulation must bear a re
lation to the volume of circulating medium
that would circulate if the currency consisted
exclusively of the precious metals. How
then can there be “a maintenance.of specie
payments with’a much larger amount of paper
circulation than has ever prevailed in sucb a
condition.” This is one of those fallacies
that has formed tbe reasoning of those who
have written on this subject since tbe com
mencement of the war. Those who are of
the school of Mr. Penfield and who assume
that there Deed be no limit to tbe issue of
paper money, may sympathise in Ills views,
hut such as adhere to tha good old doctrine*
of currency, will place him among the vis
ionaries of political science.

The reading of letters of G. B. Lamar Jr.,
from Thomasville, to G. B. Lamar Sr. in Sa
vannah, and others from Mr. Lamar Sr., to
Mr. Lamar Jr.,occupied the remainder of the
session until 12’o’elock, when the court took
a recess of ten minutes.
Upon re-assembling after the recess, the

versation which took place between Mr. G.
B. Lamar, Jr., and A. G. Browne, Jr., Trea
sury Agent, at' the office of the latter in

Detective Bunnell proceeded, as follows:
I was present at an interview betwen Mr.
G. B. Lamar, Jr., and A. G. Browne, Jr.,
Treasury Agent, in Mr. Browne’s office, on
tbe 29th of last month. Upon entering the
room, Mr. Lamar stated that he had shipped
67 bales of cotton from Spain's plantation, in
Quitman, to Doctortown, in the month of
October last; that he put his own private
mark upon it, kDowmg such cotton to have
been formerly the property of the Importing
and Exporting Company of (Jeorgja, and
that it now belonged to the United Slates.
He further said, that this had been done
above board and in broad daylight, under a
Mr. Browne asked him to give the same
of the officer granting tbe permit.
Mr. Lamar refused to give tbe officer's
name, saying that it was a matter of private
business between the officer and himself,
and, furthermore, that he would state nothing
until he had consulted with the officer upon
Mr. Browne then accused him of stealing
at different times other lots of Government
Mr. Lamar replied that he had done so,
repeating, that all such transactions had been
above board and under military permits.
Mr. Browne again demanded the names of
the officers and the dates. Mr. Lamar refused
to give them.

Tbe Judge Advocate then read from the
memorandum and other office books seized
in Mr. Lamar's room, all in tbe handwriting

Dear Gar :—l got here this morning by
Frivate conveyance from Tallahassee, where
did nothing, because no evidence I could
offer could avail with Gen • Foster. Cheever
has stolen 30 bales from Mouticello also.—
Give Mr. Dillon instructions to cover up the
shipments made, and keep account of ail the
marks and re-marks of the cotton, so that I
may know to whom it belongs. All the (9)
bales stowed at No. 17 belong to me.
Col. Kimball told me this evening that he
would not binder shipments of my cotton. I
have nothing from Mr Ferrell in reply as
yet. When you see Col. Kimball be partic
ular to report to me all he says exactly, and
say to him that I regret very much not to find
Major Hastings here —but casually, and not as
requested by me to be said to him. I have
no doubt he and Major H. would aid me
under the order of Gen. Steedman, it they
remained in command, and you may say so
to him also, incidentally. You did not report
anything in regard to the suit by Hardee and
Styles. Give me all particulars unless you
are coming up here, which I wish you to do
as soon as you can be spared from opera
If you can do any good go on to Doctor
town and return*by next train, after seeing
and instructing Mr. Dillon. Perhaps it would
be best for him to cousign tbe cotton to
Messrs. Guerard & Jewell, and you write
them t} give the hill of lading to George
with instructions to ship the cotton to Liver
pool, if there be a vessel loading in Savan
uah, and if not to put it into some safe, fire
proof brick 9tore as it is landed, not allowing
a bale to remain out at night, and to insure
it for one mouth. It may be put into oDe of
ray stores near Battersby & Cos., on the south
side. As soon as you have got through come
here, as I shall stay till you do, and I shall
need you. Yours,

G. B. Lamar, Jr.—
Dear. Nephew: I have yours of the Bth inst.,
with the enclosures, and I herewith enclose
to you two sealed letters, one to A. G.
Browne, and one to O’Fallon & Cos. You
will deliver Mr. Browne’s first and it he re
sponds favorably, yon will not deliver the
other. If he rejects, then deliver the other,
and if they accept them give them ail your
aid in getting the cotton shipped to me, or to
my order, in either case.
You may assure Mr. Browne that you do
not know the contents of the letter to him.
But you can judge after he reads it what
course he will pursue, aud keeping the cot
ton always in my name, and subject to my
order. You can tell him to forward that be
longing to the I. & E. Cos., and I have uo
doubt I shall get an order for my own from
the Treasury Department, hut you may ship
mine as before to me aud I will respond to
him, the same as upon the other.
I sent you a bale bagging by Express, 360
yds a27 and drayage $97 70. Receipt en
closed. I put these letters in your possession
to be used if necessary and not othei'wise. But
if Col. K. docs the clean thing, and I can
get my own cotton through him, then deliver
only letter No. Ito Mr. Browne. But if you
cannot you will hare to deliver No. 2 also.
Mr. Browne professed friendship for me
and regret for the wrong he had done me,
and I hope he will manifest it now. He
talks and threatens offensively, but never
mind that, only show him you are not afraid
of him and stand up boldly, but politely to
The bale was to be divided 70-195 between
me and Mr. Hubetcbeck—he 70 and I 195
out of 265, the whole. Y’ou will observe
that the witnesses were to be brought up in
person and not in writing.
I will send you SSOO to pay expenses and
you must draw for the rest.
Mr. Parnell knows the receipts are all given
up, but Mr. Evans’ letter, which I left with
you. He cannot charge over 12 1-2 per month
in good money per bale, but allow 25 if
he ctflltn9 it. •
See Col. Barnard of O’FAllon & Cos. your
self—he is expected in Thomasville—please
deliver that letter.

Dear GHz—l write two letters to Mr.
Browne—deliver No. 1 first, aud it it oper
ates favorably, and Col. K. does not get my
own cotton forward for me, then deliver No. 2.
And if be proposes any plan that does not cost
more than 10 per cent, on the I. & E. Cos.,
(which he has) and 5 per cent, on mine, agree
to it, and i'll conform, but get it lower if you
can. Talk with him, and /eel your way be

think he will not agree, then avoid altogether.
