IN REFERENCE TO THE BANKS.
Tu the Oenei’al Assembly: .
With this communication I transmit copies of the
proceeding of the stockholders of the Bank of Augusta,
the Augusta Insurance and Hanying Company, the
City Bank, and the Mechanic's Bank, located in the
•city or Augusta.
It will be seen that the two former make positive
surrenders of their charters; that the two latter have
taken initiatory steps to the same eud, and that they
all have provided for the assignment of their assets,
real and personal, for the benefit of their creditors,
that act having been, at the date of their communica
tion, completed by the President and Directors of the
Augusta Insurance and Banking Company.
You are well awar$ of the legislation of your prede
cessors, alluded to in resolutions of the stockholders,
and of the action taken by the Executive by authority
of that legislation*
It is not qpestioned, I believe, that these banks and
those of the State generally were, at the commence
ment of the late war, in a sound condition, carrying on
within the limits of their several charters a legitimate
There is abundant reason to believe, that but for
tbe large accumulation in their handB of State securi
ties of different kinds, which were repudiated by the
late State Convention, underpressure of Federal au
thority, and of irredeemable Confederate Treasury
notes, to which accumulation they were constrained
to submit, by an unusual and rigorous State policy,
they would be in a condition to meet; all their liabili
If the existence of these facts be doubted, the truth
of the case may be elicited by scrutiny into their
management. If the recitalB in their proceedings,
herewith transmitted, be true, they present a strong
claim ux>ou the justice of the State, for such relief as
it may be competent for the General Assembly to ex
tend. Certainly it would seem reasonable and bene
ficial, as well to them as to their creditors, that they
be allowed to go into liquidation, under such restric
tions as may avoid protracted and harrassing litiga

We met, 'twaa long ago, Lone Star,-
When blue-eyed violets smiled,
And May-winds murmured love songs
To flowers sweet and wild;
Where the wavelets kissed our tired feet,
And the fairies laughed and sighed.
The wild-bird sang love notes, Lone Star,
As he turned his head to gaze,
And trilled a sweet and dreamy song
From 'mong his pretty lays,
As we lived and loved, my “Lone Star,"
In those bright and happy days.
I wove the wreath of moses, “Lone Star,"
Of flowers sweet and blue;
You twined it 'round my blushing brow,
A crown of purest hue;
On the “green knoll,’’ by the lake, “Lone 8tar,'
My own, my good and true.
Years have fled since then, “Lone Star,"
Yet still I love thee more.
Than I did in those ever beautiful days;
And down by tbe old lake shore.
Where the flowers nod to the forest breeze,
We will love forevermore!

REPOBT OP THE GEORGIA RELIEF AND HOSPITAL ASSO
I herewith lay before the House of Representatives,
for the use iu turn of both bodies, the final report of
the Georgia Relief and Hospital Association, from
which I think, you will find that the complicated
and difficult undertaking by that body, has been
discharged with commendable energy and
fidelity. The two documents last referred to are so
voluminous, that with the existing pressure upon the
officers of this Departmeut, copies could not be made
of them without inconveniently delaying their trans
mission ; and hence the course adopted.
ASSUMPTION BY THE STATE OF THE FEDERAL DIRECT
By the act of Congress of the United States, passed
5th of August, 1861, for the raising of internal revenue,
the direct tax assessed upon the State of Georgia, is
five hundred and eighty-four thousand and sixty-seven,
and one-third dollars, ($584,367 33-100).
One ot the provisions of this act authorizes ths as
sumption by the States severally, of the collection aud
payment of their respective quotas, and upon such
assumption and payment, a deduction of fifteen per
cent. (15 c.) without further legislation only the tax
of one year will now be collected, and the process of
collection in Georgia, from the people directly, has
commenced, though but little progress has been made
Several of the Northern and Western States have, as
I am iniormed, actually assumed its collection and
My information is, that the Secretary of tlie Treasury
declines, without express legislation on the point, to
itemut this assumption by the States lately hostile to
thi United States.
Such legislation may, during the present session, be
entertained by Congress, and although m our present
status we shall, standing without, witness a practical
separation between the power of taxation and the pri
vilege of representation, hitherto considered co-rela
tive and inseparable in free governments, we may in
dulge the hope tfcit, whilst our voices are suppressed,
our claims will not be ignored. On this, as on other
points, patiently awaiting the prevalence of more libe
ral counsels, it is our part, as it is the unmistakable
purpose of our constituents, to discharge our whole
duty to the Government of the Uuited States. Should
the privilege be accorded, it may be after your ad
journment, and, iu that event, any action you may
deem it proper to take .on the subject must necessarily
be hypothetical. *
Should our people iu their present exhausted con
dition be called upon to pay this Federal tax iu the
course of the year, and another at or near its close, for
the support of the State Government in the next po
litical year, the burthen will fall heavily upon them.
In our present financial condition it is appareut that
whatever relief, whether temporary or permanent,
you may determine to give, must be accomplished by
extension of the State’s credit. Sould you incline to
extend relief in some form, and feel no other embar
rassment than that resulting frojn the uncertain ac
tion of the Congress, there are two alternatives, either
of which would accomplish the object. First, you
may authorize the Executive, in the event that the
privilege be accorded to the State, to borrow, upon her
jouds, a sufficient sum to pay the quota.
If this course be adopted, it would be expedient,
without loss of time, by resolution, to request a grant
of the privilege to assume, and a suspension of the
collection directly from the people, until the question
be determined by Congress.
Secondly, leaving the people to meet for themselves
this Federal tax, you may relieve them from the pay
ment of any State tax during this year, for the uses of
the next, aud rely upon a loan to supply that deficit.
The material difference between the two expedients
would be, that although upon either alternative, the
people would be relieved from oue tax, upon the se
cond, they would have to meet the payment before
realizing the fruits of the year’s labor. Very far from
countenancing the general policy of restoring to the
credit of the State, rather than to the pockets of the
people, for the support of the Government, I yet feel
that a state of things without a parallel in the past,
and I trust in the future, may justify its present
adoption, without giving it the dangerous authority ot
precedent That Btate of things is simply this: On the
one hand, a people, having their individual pecuniary
resources temporarily exhausted by a protracted and
deplorable war; on tbe other, a State, constituted of
the same people, having large permanent resources,
aud very small indebtedness, aud therefore entitled to
abundant credit. Under sucb circumstances, can it
be said, that the use of that credit, for the relief of
such people, so suffering, would violate any princi
ple of good government or sound policy ? I have felt
n my duy to ask your consideration of the subject.
PUBLICATION OF THE REPORTS OF THE SUPREME COURT
Until the year 1864, the Reporter of the 8upreme
Court was required to publish his reports in bound
By the act of 21st March in that year, he was requir
ed to publish them “in pamphlet form instead of in
There can be no little doubt that this enactment
was Induced by tbe “tate of war, then existing, but it
is not limited in duration, aud without legislation,
must continue to control that officer. In'poiut of fact,
the events ot the war have unavoidably suspended all
publication, which is felt as a serious inconvenience.
But the reputation of the able and efficient officer, en
trusted with that duty, gives ample guarantee that
their publication will be speedily resumed, and punc
tually maintained. The dignity of that tribunal, as
well as a wise economy, render proper, a return to the
former mode of publication. I seriously doubt, how-
ever, whether at the present high prices of material
and labor, bound volumes can be afforded at prices
fixed in bettor times.

A Fight with Horse Thieves—The Winnsboro
(3. C.) News, of the 10th in st., presents us with the fol

home thieves in that neighborhood:
On Tuesday evening last a raid was made by a par
ty of men upon government wagons nesr Coluinbis,
and seven inulga and a horse forcibly abducted.
Upon the report of the matter to the authorities, a de
tachment of six soldiers of the garrison, under charge
of a lieutenant, were ate once despatched to recover
the property aud to apprehend the raiders. On Wed,
nesday the latter were overtaken about seven miles
from our town in a negro cabin, resting, we presume.
The detachment, apprehending no serious resistance,
rode up, and without a word ttom either side, were
received with a sharp volley from the raiders, through
tho half open door of the cabin. The fire was returned,
but the raiders, four iu number, managed, under
cover of their stout resistance, to effe; t their escape on
their horses, abandoning the stolen property. One
soldier was wounded through the face, the ball pass
ing through both jaws and displacing a tooth or two.
Another was shot through the arm, the ball entering
not far from the elbow and issuing higher up, aud
also through the thigh, both painfully, but it is thought
not seriously. Oue ol the raiders was thought to have
been wounded. The wounded soldiers arrived in
town on Wednesday afternoon and received prompt
medical attention. From the number of shots fired—
stated to have been thirty or forty—and the earnest
aud impressive emphasis with which we (heard one of
the soldiers asseverating that “it was no fun, we
imagine it was a brisk affair.’’
A New Cathedral in Charleston.—It affords us
much pleasure to state that the Bev. P. N. Lynch,
Catholic Bishop of Charleston, has, we are informed,
made arrangements which will shortly permit him to
commence the construction ot a new Mid elegant
church edifice, in the Gothic style, to take the place of
St. Fin bar's Cathedral, which was so unfortunately
destroyed in the great conflagration of 1861. The
Bishop, we learn, has purchased landed property ad
joining the old church lot, which ham enabled him to
secure a large aud coffuxi&ndiug position for the new
building, which will be in all respects an ornament to
the city. As its position is amidst the ruins of a terri
ble conflagration, its speedy construction win tend
much to improve the appearance of the melancholy
Gen. Butler’s Card to Gen. Grant.—The Tri
bune’s Washington special gives the following as the
true reading of the card returned by Gen. Butler to
Gen. Grant’s ante <Xe initiation to his reception :
“ Gen. Bailer baa the honor feu decline the invita
tion of Lieut Gen. Grant. Gen. Butler haa now no
desire for further acquaintance."
