MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 6.
Things in general—State Affairs
la the political world, there is little to interest
our readers at this time. The polities of our own
State is at a dead calm, with scarcely a breeze to
ripple its surface. Gov. Brown i3 proving Limsell
a financier in the management of the State Koad,
which will add much to his popularity, while it
will relievo the ears of our readers of the eternal
ety of mismanagement, chalked-hals, discrimina
tion and party bias duiing the next Gubernatorial
campaign. The payment of more than $300,000
into the State Treasury, as the nett earnings of the
State Road for one year, will not be viewed as an
insignificant thing by the people, who are bur
dened with tax, while it may be appropriately ap
plied to the educational resources ot the State, the
building of a University, the encouragement of
charity schools and other enterprises in which all
the people have a common interest.
The Banks are discounting liberally, and Uti
crops are flowing in rapidly to market. Notwith
standing the recent financial crises, confidence in
iho Banks is fully restored— proving the wisdom
of the last Legislature in not pereintorily forcing
them to specie payment, but granting them time
as well as their creditors to redeem their promise? .
Besides, the bill which was passed for their reliel,
provides a security in the future for a liko fluc
tuation in the money market.
The little excitemant about the Supreme Court
has parsed away— all agreeing that the Judges oi
the Supreme Court are more skilled in the law
than the masses of the people, who have been
called upon to pronounce a judgment as to the
accuracy of its interpretation. Tne Directors ol
the Main Trunk Railway—the great road which
is to run through tho Southern part of the State
—are going ahead with their busineis, notwith
standing there is some objection to the line ot
All obstacles, we imagine, however, will be fi
nally removed and the cotton growing Counties ot
Southern and South-Western Georgia will find a
speedy outlet for their great staple.
A low works of internal improvement are in
progress, dependent upon individual enterprise,
while others, in contemplation, are awaiting the
meeting of the next Legislature to receive the aid
and credit, of the State.
The Deal and Dumb Academy, which received
a large mid bountiful appropriation from the State,
is in process of erection at Macon, and will reflect
honor and credit upon the generosity and benevo
lence of Georgia when completed. So much lor
the affairs of our own Slate. May she keep pace
with tho'progress of the age and ever boa bright
star in the constellation of States.
“Short Crop”—Savannah Republican
The Savannah Republican likens the appre
hension of a short cotton crop, now generally felt
and expressed throughout the cotton-producing
section, to tho cry of “wolf” in a familiar fable.
To some extent we agree with our cotemporary
as to the applicability of the [story to tho disposi
tion of the planter to cry “short crop,” while upon
the correctness of the moral which the fable is
intended to convey, our views are entirely coin
cident. If the apprehension were never expressed
except upon reliable and truthfnl grounds, the
credibility of such testimony would, of course,
be greatly enhanced. That the fears at present
entertained, however, are just and well-formed—
(which the Republican seems to doubt)—that there
i9a“wolf” this time, we are well satisfied. In
order to make a good yield, it is necessary that
the cotton plant should retain and perfect the
fruit, ora large portion of it, which come 9 upon
it in the months of July aud August. Those are,
in the consideration of all planters, the cotton
making months. The reported condition of the
crop in the great West, is genera! rumor, which
we have no means of authenticating; but we do
know that in Eastern and South-Eastern Alabama
and in Western and South-Western Georgia, the
rust has almost entirely obliterated overy trace of
the August fruit. This disaster attacked the
plant i;t the latter part of July, aud the rapidity
with which it has spread finds, perhaps, no paral
lel in former years. Its appeaiance wa9 anticipa
ted from the fact that grass, corn, and almost ev
ery species of vegetation suffered from it, but the
extent of the havoc it has wrought far exceeds our
most sanguine calculations.
The editor ot the Savannah Republican made
a visit, in a late spring or early summer of this
year, to a friend and a good farmer residing a
short distance from this city. From his observa
tions during that visit, we presume he imbibed a
portion of his faith in an abundant crop. If he
can find leisure to repeat bis visit to the same
neighborhood, he will now see a very different
prospect: and if he will come only twenty miles
further west, we engage to introduce lorn to
something still more gloomy.
We are included in the following remarks of
the Republican. ‘'Last spring, when the prospect
was so fine that none could find it in his heart to
grumble, it was thought unadvishble by many to
give the truth to the world, as it might affect the
price.” We are one ofthe many who condemned
the conduct of those who insisted upon parading
before the public early blooms and bolls and
large cotton stalks, and wo thought that a planter
might employ his negroes at much more
profitable work than scouting for cotton bios- !
soms. The result has demonstrated the wisdom
of the advice. By such pledges they gave assu- j
ranee of a large crop which no amount of coun
tervailing testimony can shake- Its effect is per
ceptible in the article of tho Republican. This
treatment, however, we believe is unfair to the
planter. If he can tell the truth about “blooms”
and •‘bolls,"his statements can also be credited

Hon. Martin J. Crawford.
This gentleman having been accused of disre
garding the interests of his constituents of this
immediate section ot his District, in relation to
their Mail interests, sends us, for publication, the
following communication from the Post Office
Department, to vindicate his faithlulness in this
respect. His reason for doing so, is, that the
charges against him were based upon a similar
communication addressed to Hon. R. P. Trippe,
of the third Congressional District.
A more faithful Representative than Judge
Crawford, or one more anxious to promote the
interests of his entire constituency, we are satisfied
could not be found within the District. We con
sequently regret that even an American press
should hr.ve made the charge of unfaithfulness in
the absence of reliable proof to sustain it. This
letter is a sufficient vindication, and we hope will
satisfy said press that Judge Crawford is not obnox
ious to this criticism.

The Bank was incorporated in 1830.
Early in 1837, those named in tho charter
proceeded to organize *it—erroneously, as
has been since decided, 1 admit. But 1
apprehend even “Truth” himself will not
deny that they acted in good faith, and
without the most remote fraudulent intent
or purpose. They were such men as S.
Armstrong Bailey, Alexander Pope, Lock
Weems, Walter T. Colquitt, Hu. A. 1 lar
aison, King & Boring, James N. Bethune
Garnet Andrews, John 11. Lumpkin, and
others equally honorable and virtuous.
After the organization ofthe Bank they
did what? Concluded not to prosecute the
business of banking, and by resolutions
passed and published in the newspapers of
the day, resolved to withdraw or to divide
out in the shape of a loan—themselves ha
ving the precedence to borrow the capital
stock of the bank. And in thus acting
whom did they defraud? whom did they
deceive? whom did they injure? Was
not the money paid in theirs—and theirs
without the shadow of a claim upon it, ei

had a betterorany claim upon it?

Many of this class have, after being be
loved and honored in the land, gone to the
grave—leaving to their descendants and
friends, as their most valued heritage, their
good name. In behalf of those of them
who still linger on the stage of action, and
ofthe memories of the dead, if the charge
of fraud—fraudulent purposes and practi
ces—be intended against them, and it has
been made indiscriminately.! defiantly hurl
it back in tho teeth of those who inter it,
as false in fact and sinister in purpose.—
He who would not stand forth, even with
liis life in his hand, to shield the memories
ol Walter T. Colquitt and Hu. A. Haralson
from such aspersions, was unworthy of J
their generous and ardent friendship while j
they were in life. If lam not mistaken, 1 j
will venture to “Truth’’ the assertion that ;
if a rally were cried to this end, Mr.Dougli- |
erty himself with his stalwart arm would
be the first to answer and the last to re
With the acts thus briefly detailed, end
ed the connection of this first class of stock j
holders with the bank—they having, with ;
some exceptions,prior to the Spring ot 1838 j
transferred their stock to a class whom I j
shall designate as the second.
It was these, who controlling Ihe charter
with its capital of $250,000 vested in the!
promissory notes of its stockholders, com- j
menced the business of Banking early in
Februry, 1838. A monetary crash had oc
curred, and banks and individuals fell be
fore it. ‘The Banks were, without an ex
ception, in a state of suspension. There
was no coin in the land, and the people were j
not only content with, but clamorous for, j
even a suspended currency.
It was at this time and under these circum
stances that these stockholders, or rather
the Board of Directors that represented
this corporation, commenced the business
of Banking. It was done openly ami pub
licly, notoriously and avowedly, as a sus
pended Bank—neither pretending that it
had specie, nor would pay specie for the
bills issued by it.
The manner and motives of all this were
as well known as the fact that it issued a
bill or did business as a bank, and were as
universally approved as they were univer
sally known. Now, in all this, Mr.‘Truth’
where was the fraud—the fraudulent pur
poses and practices?
Fraud is a grave charge—and when it is
made, we connect as inseparable therefrom
some concealment, some hidden and co
vert purpose to deceive, some secret de
vice and management, by which the parties
to be defrauded are designedly kept in
ignorance of their rights, as well as of the
purposes and designs of those with whom
they deal. If these be elements of fraud,
there was in this transaction a total ab
sence of all of them. It had the advantage
of entire publicity, and approval by the
entire community in which it occurred, and
no man dealing in any form with the bank
was, or could have been, deceived or de
I think I have demonstrated, then, the
injustice and falsehood of the charge of
traud against those who did the acts I have
last recited. And now was there any fraud
in the conduct and management of the
Bank itself,from its birth to its violent death
in 1843 ? Let results answer this.
Between these periods it was demanded
that the Banks should resume specie pay
ments. The Legislatures of 1838 and’39
refused to make this requisition, but the
Legislature of 1840 did make if, and im
posed as a penalty for non-compliance the
forfeiture of charters upon certain condi
tions and reservations. This Bank was
unable to pay specie, and therefore had to
submit to the penalty, which however, was
not imposed as the Legislature had direct
Instead ol a judgment of forfeiture,
reserving its right to collect and pay its
debts, 4’C., an absolute and unqualified
judgment was rendered against it. Prior
j to its rendition, however, the Directors,
! acting for the security and benefit of cred
; itors, made an assignment, and by schedule
! annexed thereto turned over to the As-
I signee assets to the amount of $391,340 93
: The sworn evidence is abundant that
these assets were ample, solvent and col
lectable, to an amount more than sufficient
to have discharged all the indebtedness of
the Bank, and to have left a handsome di
vidend for the stockholders.
The Legislature subsequently adopted
the deed of assignment thus made as in
conformity to law, and made the assignee
the agent ofthe people to collect the assets
! and pay the debts ofthe Bank. It required
! that the billholders should be first paid,they
j presenting their claims within t hree months,
j This they did not do, nor did they make
| any demand upon the assignee to go lor
j ward to collect and appropriate these
assets. The Legislature had boon careful
to exclude the Stockholders from all
interference. The Assignee, then, was not
required by creditors to act, and he could
not be so required by stockholders. He
looking to the judgment of forfeiture, and
its explicit terms, came to the conclusion
“that the debts due to and from the corpo
ration were extinguished by itsdissolution,”
and that this doctrine was “too well set
tled to be overthrown or shaken, and so
totally extinguished that the members of
the corporation can not (could not) recov
er or be charged with them in ’.heir natural
capacities.” Thus rested !he affairs of lhis
Bank, until 1847 —-irt, when the litigoion
at present pending sprung up.
1 have deemed this brief reference to
facts essential to the inquiry, W hit fraud
was there in the management of the
Commencing business on a capital of
$250,000 in promissory notes, it passed
through the perilous times from 1838 to
1843, and then turned over for the benefit
of its creditors $391,340 93. Stupendous
fraud !1 ! When and where before has
been found the creditor so heartless aud
grasping as to fling in the face of his debt
or the charge of fraud, when the debtor
has not only surrendered all lie had for his
benefit and the security of his debt, but
more than sufficient to pay it—and surren
dered this all without control or the possi
bility of redemption? If this be fraud, then
who in all the land lias or can escape the
the misfortune of “Truth” to be unable to
promptly to pay his debts, and I hope it
never may he. Should it be so, and lie
comes up with a surrender of all he lias,
the most rigid and exacting system of
bankruptcy would receive it, however in
sufficient, and leave him as his capital his
Whatever else may be said, the less of
these assets-—the failure to appropriate
them—cannot be laid at the door of the
stockholders. They were, I had almost
said, forcibly and violently taken from the
control and management of the Bank and
its Directors; and it has been proven, if
they had been let alone, they would with
them more than have paid the debts of the
Bank. They were distinctly set apart for
the benefit of the creditors. They have
been lost to them, and a surplus of SIOO,-
000 lost to the stockholders. Upon whom
rested the superior claim and the prior
obligation to see to it that they were col
lected and appropriated? Yet the billhol
ders, not the plaintiffs in this litigation fail
ed to assert any claim until alter these de
mands in the hands of their Assignee had
been barred by the statute of limitations.—
About the year 1847—’48, the spirit of
speculation upon the accidents of almost a
post age was aroused. The bills of the
Bank fell into the hands of a few individ
uals, as has been proven in some instan
es, for even five cents in the doilar, and
they have raised the howl and cry of fraud!
andjevery principle of truth is deaerated to
It is said, Mr. Editor, that “truth is migh
ty and will prevail,” but I hardly think The
author ofthe saying had in view this wri- 1
ter, in his effort 1o charge home fraud
against the stockholders of this Bank. It
is enough that they have been pursued for j
more than ten years with a most vexatious ;
litigation. The plaintiffs in it, and who
have purchased themselves into it for the
most trifling consideration, may by the stern
rules ol law be enabled to forage and fat
ten upon their purses. But the charge of
fraud is another matter, and the naked as
sertion of“ Truth” will not maintain it.
1 would that the necessity for this com
munication had not been created. If the
writers of “Justice” and “Truth” had let
rest the names of Mr. Dougherty and myself
it might yet have been avoided. I confess,
however, I have long felt that some notice
or these wholesale denunciations was re
quired ol me—that the forbearance which
omitted it had ceased to be a virtue.

It is announced by the British journals
that Lord Palmerston has become the pro- j

something about Statesmen and Newspa

the newspaper politician ofEngland. lie
had the sagacity long ago to see the power
of the Press, not its power over the moment
—not its power in an impending contro
versy—not its power to communicate the
news of the morning—but its paramount
and perpetual power over the public senti
ment of the world. Lord Palmerston, with
that quick perception which has ever been
a characteristic of his mind, saw that opin
ions are made precisely as models and
machines me made, by the exercise in some
w r ay of superior talent, genius, taste, and
skill. In looking about tor the chief agen
cies in this work he naturally enough ob
served the slow but certain npworkings of
the Newspaper Press, which addresses ev
ery day in the United Kingdom more than
two trillions of persons, and in this country
more than ten millions. The preacher, the
lecturer, the lawyer, the political orator, the
statesman and fanatic, are absolutely pow
erless without its aid. There is hardly any
commercial, social, or political vitality in
our system, in our religion ot iaws, without
it. It is the record o 1 all courts, almost,
we had said, the medium of all rational
thought, the interpreter ot science and art,
the expounder of principles, and the foun
tain ot nearly all the reforms of modern so
ciety. No man in the world has a clearer
appreciation ot the great power of the Press
than Lord Palmerston.
About thirty years ago, or perhaps a lit
tle later, about tlm period of the difficulty
with Russia growing out of the partition of
Poland, when tho growing power of the
Press was beginning to be felt, but still re
mained w ithout recognition as the perma
nent organ of opinions, l.oid Palmerston
was sagacious enough to make overtures
to it and invoke its aid in his own behalf.—

Judge Douglas opened the campaign in
Illinois with a long speech, in which lie
made no mention at ail of the democratic
party. He praised the republicans and
Americans, endorsed the Crittenden sub*
stitute, and declared that the Administra
tion and its friends were defeated in an at
tempt to perpetrate a “fraud.” What is
the inference which the listening democra
cy were compelled to adopt, from this con
duct of Judge Douglas ? Ot course that
he had struck hands with tho republicans,
was asking their support and invoking their
condemnation of the democratic party in
Congress. At Ottawa, the other day, Mr.
Douglas made another speech, in which lie
assails the Republicans, impeaches their pat
riotism at every step of their progress,
charges them with originating measures to
dissolve the Union, and appeals to the
democratic, sentiment of the country to put
them down. The two speeches were made
in the same canvass, to the same general
constituency, on the same issues. Now,
what are we to infer from this marvellous
discrepancy in Judge Dauglas 5 opinions ? It
is a plain case. Ho went to Illinois expect

of that paper was large in his State. He

President Buchanan in an Alarming
Position.— A correspondent from Bedford

The lady of Col. Alfred Spates, of Cum
berland, Maryland, one of the visitors at
the Bedford Springs, by her dashing ex
ploits with a pair of superb horses, has
created quite a sensation. Her admirable
tact and skill in handling the ribbons, and
managing her spirited animals, are the
theme of commendation with all experts

took the silver cup at a recent agricultural
fair in Montgomery county for the best dis
play of horsemanship. Her style in the
saddle is queenly, and she would be the

man at Franconi’s. The lady has honored
some of our distinguished guests with an
invitation to share with her the hilarous
exercise and refreshing perils of a place by
her side upon her brilliant charioteering
excursions. The other day she sent her
card to the President, who, of course, with
his habitual politeness, placed himself in
her charge, and the lady gave him a glo
rious round. Dashing “through Bedford
town at a spanking pace, the horses fleck- :
ed with foam, the lady glowing with excite
ment, and the President, known to every
body, very serious alarm seized the public
mind that some aspiring dame had caught
up the Chief Magistrate of the United
States and was eloping with him. As it
was observed, however, that the President
took it very calmly, called upon no one tor

The Paraguay Expedition,
Paraguay affairs have claimed more or
less ot the public attention since the ad
journment ot Congress, and the name of
Captain Thomas J. Page has generally been
associated with them as the probable com
manding officer of the expedition now in
preparation for LaPlata. It was therefore
with some surprise that his many friends
learned that Commodore ShuSrick had
been assigned to the command of the Bra
zil squadron, and that the Paraguay fleet
would form a part of it. We are glad to
know, however, that the most cordial feel
ings exist between the distinguished officer
selected as flag officer of the squadron and
Captain Page, who will occupy the respon
sible post of fleet captain, and that the po
sition assigned each of them by tho de
partment is entirely agreeable to both.
It has been deemed sound policy to
greatly augment tho Navel force to be sent
upon this expedition, that the demonstra
tion may be as imposing as possible; and,
that nothing may be wanting to produce
the desired moral effect by the appearance
of the expedition in that part, of South
America, it has been deemed advisable to
place it under the command of the senior
officer of the Navy—a man who unites to
his high position all the personal qualifi
cations essential for such service. Captain
Page is assigned to the post of flag captain
’ by the selection of the Secretary of the
Navy, and at the expressed desire of Com
modore Shubrick. Nothing could furnish
i better evidence of the high appreciation in
which his services are held by these dis
tinguished gentlemen.— Wash/Vnion.

on the Chattahoochee River, immediately on the
Girard and Mobile R. It., within twenty minutes
ride of the city of Columbus. The two tracts
adjoin each other, both containing about three
hundred acres of River bottom, and the rest well
timbered. There is in each tract about 750 acres.
It is without doubt the healthiest locality in the
South. Each place has buildings upon it, with
excellent mineral water. One place can be pur
chased or both together to suit buyers. Terms
easy. Those wishing to purchase will do well
to call early on tho subscriber—for the premises
will not be lor sale after the lirst of October next,
