LAMEST CIRCULATION!! THE CITV AH GOURTY
WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 1, 1806.
The prepositions, now before Congress,
equalize the bounties of soldiers and pay
losses of claimants assuming to be loyal, es
thm;: cd at $000,000,000 each, have created
much alarm in financial circles throughout
the country. It is alleged that to endorse
one of these propositions is to endoise the
other. Both projects make the plea of equity
and in this case, to touch upon the rylla of
bounties is to rush on ebarybdis of claims
Tue holders of government securities, espe
cially, contemplate with fear and trembling
the addition of one billion two hundred mil
lion of dollars to the present national debt,
It is with evident symptoms of a paDic that
they hear these measures pressed upon Con
gross and urged with vehemence by many
members. Whatever may be the seeming
duty iu paying one soldier as much as an
other, it loses, in their judgment, even the
appearance of justice when to do so, will uc-
compiish the financial ruin of the country.
However the future may be able to repair
the damages or the inequalities of the late
war, it is believed the present cannot do
this, save at the destruction of National
credit and the cost of universal distress.
Y/e believe the apprehension is well found
ed, and that disaster to this country does not
lie altogether in tbo direction of reconstruc
tion. Tuat question, bv being unnecessarily
delated, will greatly retard our prosperity,
but. it may not precipitate another revolution
or seriously disturb the land. The most that
can lie said of it at present is,that it is far more
likely to defeat the men or destroy the move
ment that mismanages it, than to effect aoy
lasting injury on the government. The spe
cial danger that looms up as we read the fu
ture takes rise from the immense magnitude
of our National debt. It is the sea of finance
perhaps, that is most difficult to navigate,
aud there are the rocks on which we are
most likely to split, aud the reefs where the
ship of State will strand, if at all.
To-day our credit is good. Gold is de
clining, aud with it some diminution of
prices. The next great blessing to follow
the return of peace is the reduction of the
present frightful cost of living. For the
American people there remains nothing to
be done that can compare in its benefits
with the policy which assists in the return, or
an approach to the return, of the former
prices of the necessaries of life.
Under the wise financial system of the
present Secretary of the Treasury, if his re
commendations are followed by Congress, it
Is predicted the advent of this glad event
will be no chimera. That policy has suc
ceeded thus far in avoiding a mercantile cri
sis, while it is safely preparing, we hope, the
way for funding and contraction. Renewed
confidence on the part of foreign capitalists
is established, and great activity is manifest
ed iu procuring bonds. Anything whicts
changes this healthy and promising state
of things must be regarded as a calamity.
Tbi3 condition caunot only be impaired, but
destroyed by each of two processes. One,
repudiation, of which we apprehend no dan
ger—tue other, such an increase of our na
tional debt, ttat payment becomes, if not a
matter of impossibility, at least so improba
ble that capital at home and abroad will
shrink from investment. The funding plan,
as we understand it, seeks to bortow in Eu
rope at one-half the interest now paid. To
be successful our security must be kept sa
cred and inviolate. By jeopardizing our se
curities in the manner proposed, we would
not only blest the prospects of obtaining mo
ney in Hie old world, but would seriously de
preciate our values at home. The measures
before Congress may have the elements of
local popularity, but their adoption might
prove “the stale bait of popularity at the ex
pense of the public good.”
It is not likely, however, that they will
meet with favorable consideration, as we in
fer from the fact that the Committee on
Claims at Washington have already reported
in favor of throwing out all claims growing
out of the rebellion; announcing also that
the amount ol these claims roll up so heavi
ly that their payment will require more mo
ney than the country can furnish, and that,
in their opinion, “the establishment of a pre
cedent in their payment would be very dan
THE CIRCUMSTANCES OF THE WIDOW
OF STONBWAU. JACKSOS.
A Noble Letter from Hr*. Jackwa.
[From the Charleston News, Feb. 5th.]
A few weeks since we saw In aome of oar exchange?
statements, apparently authentic, of the very straitened
circumstances of the widow and family of the late
lamented General Jackeon; and, prompted by a pro-
Xound AfimirAHftn of bii trucenddot military gaxuus
and his exalted moral worth, we proposed to take up a
subscription in Charleston for their relief To our
nots addressed to her upon the subject we havereosived
the letter which w# publiah below, and, as an actor
justice to the lady, we would request such of our con
temporaries a* have published the notice of her
circumstances, and which have taken the meeeuree to
relieve them which we ourselves proposed, to publish
also this communication. Hie spirit of the letter, it
must be confessed, it very beautiflti. ......
It is not denied that the is without means, and tost
she Is dependent upon her father,
known not to be ample; and there is etUl room for the
regret that the relic of one so v sc orated oould not be
placed by his admiring countrymen in a position of a
more perfect independence; but she is too conscious
of what is due to herself ss a woman. and to the rnsm-
orv of her great husband, to be placed in the position
of a mendicant of common charity; and contributions,
in misconception of her position, therefore, with th-
most nerfeci kindness for those who offer them, sho
feels constrained to decline. The reeoluUon we ad
mire. It is ae which, in justice to her, we ought to
have anticipated. But the wteh lingers with us. as it
will linger, doubtless, with our readers, that in aome
wav apart from a process so unpleasant, the means
might be found to testify to those he had left behind
bun the gratitude and admiration of a people for the
greatest man this age has known. The small amount
contr.b ited. upon the original announcement of our
purpose, however, we will still take the liberty offor-
warding, in the hope that, in aome way, she will be
pleased to use It

Mt Dean Sis; Your letter of the 3d Inst, was for
warded to me from Lexington, Virginia. I have de
layed answer for a few days, hoping to receive the pa
pers to which you referred, but it has not yet reached
me, and 1 have not had the pleasure of reading your
editorial; but. Judging from the remarks in your let.
ter, I suppose It is a similar publication to what has
recently appeared in many of the newspapers, repre
senting the family of General Jackson aa suffering for
the necessities of life and appealing to the public for
It Is a source of deep regret and mortification to me,
and to my family and friends, that such a misunder
standing should exist in regard to my circumstances.
It is true thst almost the whole of my little fortune hae
been swept away. My noble husband, actuated by
patriotism, invested In Confederate bonds to assist the
Government, and I, following his example, the conse-
queno# was the loss of nearly the whole of his estate;
out nod nas still left to me one of the kindest of Cith
ers, who has the means of providing all the comforts
of life for ms and my orphan child. The pecuniary
sufferings of others in our atfilcted land have been so
muob greater than my own that, in this respect, I
have only need of a more thankful heart And I, of
all others, shovld have no fears for the future, for the
covenant keeping God of mv husband has watched
over ns heretofore, and the love of this great people
to me and my little ohild, on his account, filla my
heart with grateful Joy.
While it is one of the greatest comforts of my deso
lated bfe to tee the many beautiful and eloquent
tributes to the memory of my beloved husband, and
I would gratefully accept any offerings that are volun
tarily given as testimonials of love and gratitude to
him, yet the contributions that are now callod for are
given under a false impression, and It is Inconsistent
with my ideas of honor and rectitude to receive them.
I would, therefore, beg that all efforts that are made to
raise a fund for my "relief," both In Charleston and
elsewhere, be immediately stopped.
With thanks to the warm-hearted and generous clt-
zens of Charleston for their kind feelings towards me
I remain, yonra very truly,

Death ofHou. Ajbary Hall.
It will be painful intelligence to the many friends
of this good and gifted man to learn that he hae been
gathered to his fathers, having expired at his residence
in Affieuc cn Thursday last. His death was sudden,
while in the enjoyment of hie usual health. It was his
custom at morning to devote a short time to the study
of that Bible which had been ths constant companion
of his long and useful life. On being called tobreak-
taet on the morning of his death, hit failure to attend
caused a servant to be sent to summon him a second
time, when it was discovered that the vital spark had
flown while sitting in his chair In the act of reading the
groat book whose teachings he had followed through
out his long, honorable and Christian career. Thu*
has passed from earth one of Georgia^ most honored
sons, and one in whom was blended not only all the
elements of a useful citizen, but whose virtues were of
that rare order possessed by few men. The light o,
his exemplary and model course of life shone like
f unsbine around him ; and if a perfect man ever
dwelt upon earJU the spotless character of Atbury
iluii was such as to stamp him as one. He had been
honored wich Die confidence of hie constituents in the
General Assembly of our Suta during many sessions,
end won golden opinions by the wisdom and manli
ness wbicn characterized him in tho councils of bis
(State. No public act of his life can be pointed to that
does not exhibit qualities of head and heart greatly
to be admired ; while in toe homo circle and in (octal
life he stood :ortn a model and a bright ornament. To
the church, and to the community in which he lived
his loss will bo irreparable, while over the sacred grief
that must pervade the clrclo of his extensive family
connexions we could wish to draw a veil.—Atlanta

To the Editors of the Savannah Hernia :
Ge ntlemen—Groat and just cause for complaint is
made by our merchants relative to the loososndun
fair conrse pursued by many of the Savannah forward
iaj and steamboat agents, in shipping goods to this
place without specifying on bill of lading the rate of
freight to be paid. In other words, they make no con
tracts with carricra.bnt allow steamboats to charge spy
rate of freight they may please. Large ehlppera, through
the carelessness or desire of forwarders, are frequently
compelled to pay from one to two hundred per cent,
more freight on some boat* than partial sending small
shipments. We are determined to put a stop to those
outragea. In future we will give our business only to
those steamboat agents and forwarding merchants who
■will study our interest enough to secure us reasonable
freights, and in all cases specify the rate contracted
for on bill of lading. Hoping, gentlemen, that we may
have no further causa of complaint from the same
I remain your, Jurric*.
A Rlcb Seen, on John’s Island, 8. C.
A party of sober, staid white men, from the State of
Will*Am Penn, visited John’s Island, S. C., on Sunday
lost, with the intention of purchasing land and making
examinations of tho plantations. For this purpose a
steamboat was placed et their disposal by General
Sickles, and In due timethe party arrived at the Island.
Cn reaching the settlement at a plantation which they
wanted to examine before purchasing, th# whole party
were surrounded by an Infuriated mob of “colored
folks," (it is not respectable to say negroes now,)
armed with all kinds of weapons, and the aforesaid
white gentlemen threatened with instant death for
daring to enter the stronghold of their island without
permission from the Tycoon, who now rulos the island
with despotic away. The white men from Pennsylva
nia were immediately seized and compelled to walk
twelve miles, almost the entire length of the island, to
tho headquarters of the colored Tycoon, who runs the
machine, that is, the Bureau of Uncle Sam.
The poor white men begged, implored, offered mo
ney, aud promised to return to their boats and never
invade the privacy of Africa's domains again ; the fat
Pennsylvanians showed their authority from the big
Bureau at Washington and Generals Sickles and Dc-
vene, at Charleston ; but Cuffey couldn't read, and re
plied that he would kill Gen. Howard, Gen. Sickles
or any other "cussed white man who cum on Jim or
Jon Island for take he property." There was no alter
native left, and the Pennsylvanians had to trudge
twelve miles through the heavy sand, surrounded by
mob oi about one hundred and fifty infuriated blacks,
several of whom wanted to "loose them in the woods,"
and were only restrained from doing so by the hard
entreaty of themselves and the influence of a few of the
negroes, whose compassionate hearts malted at the
blistered feet and sufferings of the “poor white
In order to hasten the pace of the captives, the ne
groes poked them in the ribs with sticks, and occa
sionally touched them from behind with a point of a
yonet, or some other sharp instrument. Reader, if
you have over been on John'* Island, you can form ■
correct idea of the unspeakable pleasure the gentlemen
from Pennsylvania must have enjoyed last Sabbath in
walking twelve miles through the loose, fine sand of
that beautiful island under suob very agreeable and
pleasant associations. Bat to our narrative. The
white men of Pennsylvania arrived at the headquar
ters of the Tycoon about 5 o’clock in the afternoon, foot
sore and completely exhausted. The Tycoon of the Bu
reau appeared In ail his majesty and pomp, examined
the papers, and found them correct. With a wave of
his band bis people dispersed and the white men
were rescued from their terrible fete. After receiving
rose and refreshments, they departed for Charleston
wiser, if not better men, when they laid their heavy
grievances before the Bureau, and the people of
Charleston, through the columns of the press, from
whence the substance of th* foregoing has Been gather
ed. Tho whole affair is on# of '‘the richest jokes of
the season;” bnt we presume our Pennsylvania friend*
do not view it In that light, and it would not surprise
us if a special committee was appointed by Congress,
with old Thad. Stevens ss chairman, to see If the whole
thing was not a canard ooncooted by the Copperheads.
Volts viron».—Aujusta Constitutionalist.
Natiosal Banks Washiuton letters say that a mt-
•ority of the Committee on National Banks are decid
edly opposed to making the banking capital $400,000,-
000. The Secretary of the Treasury maintains that
there is no necessity for a further increase at the pre
sent time, but believe that something should be done
in order to give the Southern States their apportion,
ment under the law. Both the Secretory of the Trea
sury and United States Treasurer Spinner arc in favor
of legislation which allow any bank, with consent cf
the directors, to remove to any other State or locality.
If adopted by Congress, this will allow any national
bank, whose business is not remunerative, to go to
other sections of the country.
Outside of the Committee we have the following re
port; "The Comptroller of the Currency, Hon. Free
man Clarke, adheres to the recommendation in hia re
port of one hundred millions, based upon the retiring
of a like amount of legal tender."
Another report says that Mr. McCulloch "might
perhaps consent to an increase of $25,000,0C0 for the

been calculating that at the present rets it would take
four hundred years and more to pay off the British
national debt. Bnt an English writer calculates that,
by the linking fund process, as now administered by
the Commissioners, the whole can be paid off in less
than one hundred years. One, pound, he says, multi

seven pounds invested in the three per cent consols,
In the manner in which It la now done. If so, our
whole n v ioual debt would be absorbed in the same
rate of interest, by a sinking fond of $4,772,894, sup
posing the debt to be $2,800,000,000. But if invested
in our own securities, tt six per cent, half that amount
should be sufficient in the same time.

“CZ A R.»>
This horse was raUed in Southern Rnrala by a Cir
cassian soldier. Like the Arabians, the nomadic
people of his tribe form the strangest and most in
violable attachments to their unexcelled horses —
They make their favorite coursers their special com
panions, and train ihem to be very fleet and Intelli
gent. This Circassian, during one of Ills wandering
tours, became very needy, and soon found eager pro
posers for the purchase of his splendid horse. At
ast he consented to part with him. He was brought
before Ihe purchaser, and there ensned a scene that
has been used as a subject of a poet’s pen. At a sig
nal from him, the horse,
“ Witli flowing tail and living mane,
Wiih nostrils never stretched by pain,
Mouth bloodless to the bit or rein ;
And feet that Iron never shod,
And flanks unscarred by spur or rod.
The bounding horse—the wild, the free—
Like wave That dashes on the sea,
Came proudly thundering on."
There stood the noble horse, the admiration of
every beholder. No steed of the Tartar, or Ukraine
or Arab breed could be more beautifnlly formed.—
Never did Landseer or Rosa Bouheur see or imagine
a more perfect animal.
He will also Introduce hia thoroughbred Trick
