on Foreign Bank Agencies.
We refer our readers to an extract from the
Comptroller General’s Report, on the above sub
ject, published in another column. It therdnjap
pears that the Banking capital of thi3 State paj s
directly into the Treasury 39 cents on the [sloo,
free of cost, while foreign banking capital, estima
ted in the manner adopted by the present tax law,
pays to the Stan only 29,25 on the SIOO, inclu
sive of Receivers’ and Collectors’ commissions.—
We presume it was this difference in the Slate tax
paid hy domestic and foreign capital, and the ig
norance of another fact, stated in the extract al
luded to, which induced some of our cotemporaries,
or their correspondents, some time ago, to declare
that the latter was tho especial favorite of our
They forgot, or never knew that no other than
a State tax was levied upon the banking capital
of the Stan, while foreign capital paid, in addi
tion, a county tax, which is in many cases equal to
that levied by the Stai \ The contribution, there
fore, of the latter, though less to the Treasury, is
greater in the aggregate, and believing this dis
crimination to be impolitic as well as unjust, wc
adopt the recommendation of the Comptroller
General,and hope the Legislature will repeal tfle
Act of 1860, and substitute therefor a law which
shall be more equal in its burdens-afit cting foreign
and domestic capital alike. The policy of exclu
sion which, we regret to say, finds favor in certain
quarters, is opposed hy the spirit of the age and is
unworthy the intelligence of our noble State.
Prize Fights and the Press.
The news-papers arc teeming with accounts of
a brutal fist fight, which occurred recently on the
Canada shore between two natives of New York.
Every round, in which the poor fellows pounded
each other almost to jelly, is described with the
minutest detail as though the vitiated tas.e of the
people craved it. We have too high an apprecia
tion of the morals of the American people to think
that they relish such deeds of heroism and daring.
It might excite the pride and stimulat i the ambi
tion of the black-guard, but it is revolting to the
sense of every humane man. It is unworthy that
elevated, moral sentiment which beats in the hearts
of the American freemen. It is beneath the civil
ization of the present day and the press of the
country, the great lever of public opinion, should
denounce it, rather than teach youths such les
sons of public morals. An exchange, whose views
we adopt, says:
“These fights are not intended simply as a means
of wreaking their (the pugilists’) animosities upon
one another, or of testing their physical strength,
but of furnishing the young, and the coarse, and
tho vicious,-with the means of gambling. A prize
fight derives nearly all its interest from the fact
that large sums of money may be staked on its re
sult. All gambling is a public evi 1 , strikes
public morals a deeper blow than almost any
other form of vice; but gambling in which the
chances and excitement are found in the suf
fering and disfigurement of two human beings,
trained for the purpose, is one of the most atroc
ious offences against society that can be conceived
of. If there be any one thing more than another
which has contributed to the happiness and pros
perity of this nation, it is the inherent respect for
man as man, in his simplest character, which lies
at the base both of our social and political system.
We have always proclaimed aloud our respect for
humanity, simply because it was human, and we
have acted on this declaration, both in our legisla
tion and in all the relations of life. But how is it
possible to maintain this feeling, if our young men
are every few months presented with a spectacle
which converts two male adultsjnto machines for
mutual destruction by pounding, gashing and
mauling, for the gratification of a few hundred

The two balloons came in collision, while at an el

no serious damage to cither was done. The race
was won by Prof. Steiner, he having been in the
air ten minutes longer than his competitor and
traveled in the time (six hours and ten minutes)

The Union, in an article commending the ad
dress of Senator Davis at the New York ratifica
tion meeting regrets—
“To see in a late number of the Charleston Mer
cury a severe assault upon Senator Davis for the
conservative and conciliatory course he has pur
sued during his sojourn in New England during
the summer. It is true that the strong censures
of the Mercury upon the Mississippi Senator have
a ground of justification to an extract which it
publishes, and assumes to be genuine, from a re
puted speech of Mr. Davis at Bangor, in which
the speaker seems to concede that an anti-slavery
majority in a Territory has the right to exclude
slavery by denying remedial legislation to slave
holding immigrants. In view of the declarations
of the same speaker at Fancuil Hall and New
York, wc are constrained to discredit the genuine
ness of the reputed Bangor extract vouched by the

have a chess tournament in that city at the time

will be allowed to participate in the contest.

was not in his official capacity.
FOR THE TIMES.
To the Editors Columbus Times,
Dear Sirs: — I learn that the stockholders in
the Loan Associations of this city have been a little
alarmed by an article which appeared in the Sun
copied from the Georgia Citizen. The article refer
red to comments on two decisions of the Supreme
Court, in regard to Dower, and the other
in relation to the Widow’s maintenance. Loan
Associations are not more interested in these de
cisions thad other lenders on bond and mortgage,
and the effect of these decisions on the Associations
should create no uneasiness, for they are affected
by them in a very slight degr e, for the following
Ist. Most of their loans are on Trust property,
and this class of property stands unaffected by
either of these decisions.
2d. As to the mortgages that are not in trust,
they are divided in amounts varying, originally,
from SI,OOO to $4,000, (now much reduced by
payments,) and, unless we were visited with an
epidemic that should select for its subjects mem
bers of the Association, it would take a very astute
arithmetician to calculate the fractional risk to
which these Associations are subjected by the de
cision. A STOCKHOLDER-
ax on Foreign Book Ageucles.
The Legislature of 1856 altered the law in rela
tion to the return of foreign Bank Agencies, and
the collection of Taxes from the same. The pre
vious law required a foreign bank agent to “make
a return on oath to the Treasurer of the highest
amount of loans on paper discounted, and ex
change purchased by him, and running to maturi
ty at any one time during the twelve months im
mediately preceding such returns,” and it further
required “such agent to pay into the treasury, free
of all cost or charge whatsoever, the same rate of
tax upon one-thinl of such highest amount re
turned by him aforesaid, as is now imposed or
may hereafter be imposed by law, upon the char
tered banks of this State.” The Act of the Leg
islature of 1856 requires all foreign bank agents
to give in on oath to the Receiver of Taxables, for
the county wherein said agent and employee may
reside or sojourn, whenever called upon so to do,
a just and true statement or exhibit of the amount
in coin, bills, notes, drafts and cheeks, used and
employed by him during the last jireceding quar
ter, which amount so given in shall bejhanded ov
er by the Receiver to the Tax Collector of said
county, whose duty it shall be to collect as other
taxes are collected, nine and three fourth cents on
each hundred dollars so given in and returned,
estimating bills, notes, drafts and checks as mo
ney.” As the previous law only placed foreign
bank agencies upon a footing with other banks
of the State, in the of taxation, I presume
that it was the intention of tho Legislature of
1856 to increase the State tax on foreign bank
agencies. Instead of its doing this, it actually
decreased the State tax on foreign bank capital
25 per cent., besides the State having to pay all
costs of collection, or the receiver’s and collector’s
commissions, which it did not do before. It is
true, that this Act of 1856 did increase the tax on
foreign bank capital, by requiring its agents to
give into the Tax Receiver, thereby laying it lia
ble to a county tax, and in this way, in Muscogee
county, foreign banks have been required to pay
75 to 100 per cent, on the tax of former years—
still it seems clear to my mind that they do not
pay the State *by 25 per cent, as much as the
State banks—rating three months business of a
foreign bank agency equal to the capital stock
paid in of the State banks—the latter paying in
to the treasury, free of cost to the State 39 cents
on the SIOO, while the former pays but 29.25 on
the $100; and the State paying Receivers’ and
Collectors’ commissions. If, therefore it be the
desire of the representatives of the people to raise
a revenue from the operations of foreign bank
agencies in this State, and not drive them from
the State, I would suggest the repeal of the Act
of 1856, and the re-enactment of the former, or
the enactment of a similar law, with a heavy pen
alty annexed for a failure on the part of said
agents to make a return to the State treasury—
one half to the informer.— Comptroller General's
The Condition of the English Laborer.
According to some of the British journral,
the condition of a large portion of the English
laborers is truly deplorable. They can, with
great difficulty, earn the means of subsistence,
while their social comforts are few and far be
tween. Various efforts have been made to pro
duce a change, but thus far with little success.—
The Northern “Times,” published at Liverpool,
takes up the subject in detail, and in the course of
a sympathetic article, says :
“We boast of our abhorrance of negro slavery ;
we romance, we moralise, and we actually weep
over the tales of African suffering, but we cannot
afford a passing thought for the millions of white
slaves who constitute the masses of our laboring
population. What are these in reality but mere
animated machines ?—employed only because it
has not been possible, as yet, to discover others to
supersede them. As their employment has been
the result of necessity, and not of choice, the
great object of the employer has been to tax the
physical endurance of the employed to its utmost
limits, and reduce the rate of remuneration to the
lowest minimum. Unfortunately, the fierce com
petition of trade, and the unusually overcrowded
state of the labor market, combined to render this
state of things apparently inevitable.
This is, indeed, a lameutable picture. But the
case is similar, we fear, to a very considerable ex
tent, in other portions of the world, and even in
this country. There are few araoug the laboring
classes, however economical and industrious, who
even secure more than a living for themselves and
families. Their lot is one of excessive toil.—
Those who are skilled in some particular art or
craft, can of course do better. But the mere la
borer, even in his best condition, has a hard task
before him. There is, moreover, too little sympa
thy felt for this particular class. Their ants,
their enjoyments, their recreations, are rarely con
sidered. They are regarded as mere hewers of
wood and drawers of water, and arc treated accor
dingly. How rarely, indeed, do we hear of any.
movement intended to elevate the social condition
or extend the social enjoyments of the merely
working classes ? Even philathropy seems to
look upon them with indifference or contempt.—
But this should not be. There is a reason for all
things, and due consideration should be felt for
every member of the human family.”
The State Fair.
The Atlanta Intelligencer of Friday says:
“The crowd in attendance upon the Agricul
tural Fair on yesterday was larger than on any
previous day. The orator selected to deliver the
annual address, having failed to attend, Mr. Chas.
Wallace Howard, of Cass, consented to make a
few remarks. He offered a resolution to the effect,
“that a Committee be appointed to memorialise
the Legislature, to establish an Agricultural Col
lege with an experimental Farm attached.” The
speaker presented, in a very forcible light, the de
fects in our system of education, as regards that
sort of instruction which qualifies a young man
for the practical duties of the agricultural profes
sion. Gen. Harrison, of Chatham, remarked that
this was a subject in which every man, woman
and child, in the State, had an interest, and pro
pounded that the whole audience should vote on
the question. The vote was taken, and the reso
lution was unanimously adopted. We omitted to
notice that at the organization of the Society,
preparatory to the transaction of business, on mo
tion of Col. Wm. T. Wilson, of Atlanta, Hon. D.
W. Lewis, of Hancock, was chosen President ot
the Society; General Harrison, of Chatham, Ist

Flowing by Steam.
The “iron horse” seems to be gradually claim
ing the attention of farmers, for the purpose of
tilling the soil. The State Board of Agriculture
in Illinois has offered a premium of $5,000, for the
best steam plow; and a trial for this prize is to
take place at Grand Prairie, some time this month.
Three plows are entered for competition, and one
has already made its appearance in the Prairie
State. This is that of Mr. Wm. Favvks, of Chris
tiana, Ala., built on the Loomolive principle, and
capable of turning six deep furrows at one oper
ation. It was tried at the State Fair, held at
Centralia (111.,) on the 16th ult., and gave very
The Royal Agricultural Society of England has
recently awarded a prize of $2,500 to Mr. 11.
Fowler, for the most efficient steam plow. It has
a stationary engine, usiug warping ropes to drag
the shares through the furrows. Mr. Mechi, the
celebrated English farmer, uses one of these Jplows,
and its cultivation of the soil is very superior—
the yield of wheat having been increased eight
bushels per acre by its use. There are twenty
tenant farmers in England who now cultivate
with steam, and the saving is about one-fourth of
the cost, in comparison with horses. Where fuel
is abundant and cheap, we have no doubt that in
twenty years hence, steam plows will be in com
mon use in our great Western prairies.—Scienti
Emigration to Central America.
Since the seizure and return of Gen. Walker and
his associates in arms to the United States, hy
Com. Paulding, of our national navy, the enter
prise for the Americanization of Nicaragua, by emi
gration from this country, has been looked upon
by many as abandoned —as hopeless. This, how
ever, is not the case, if all we hear in regard to its
renewal be true. It seems that the position as
sumed by Gen. Cass, Secretary of State, in his in
structions to Gen. Lamar, Minister to Nicaragua,
in to the transit route through that
country, has paved the way for a renewal of the
emigration enterprise. Let this route be opened
and kept open and emigration will soon establish
an influence over the affairs of Nicaragua, and fi
nally lead to its Americanization. The closing of
this route is what, in fact, defeated Gen. Walker.
We are assured by those whom we consider
reliable authority, that the firm belief in the
intention of our Government to maintain the
position it has assumed, has revived the en
terprise under the most favorable auspices, on a
new plan, with ample means and arrangements to
insure success. As an evidence of this, we see it
announced that a vessel will leave Mobile on the
10th of next month, for San Juan del Norte, and
that she will carry those wishing to emigrate to
Nicaragua, who are advised to send in their names
in order that their passage may be engaged, and
be in Mobile two or three days before the day of
departure. And we have seen it stated in several
quarters that boats and steamers for the river San
Juan and Lake Nicaragua bad already gone down
to Greytown; that the Hermann had been sent
round to the Pacific side to ply between San Juan
del Sur and San Francisco; and that two steam
ers had been purchased from the Collins line to
ply between Greytown and our ports. We are
led to believe there is something in all this; and
to judge from what we have heard and seen, we
would say that one vessel can’t he sufficient to
carry all who desire to be the pioneers of the en
terprise from this section, notwithstanding the
shortness of the notice given.— New Orleans Cres

Some people, however, by their conduct, appear
to think that Stephen Girard didn’t know how- to
make a fortune, and think “there’s no use putting
everything into the papers;” that their stores are
enough known already; and these people will
continue to jog along at a snail’s pace, and are
soon distanced by their competitors. There is
skill in advertising as in everything else. Adver

The College Chapel.
It will be seen from the minutes of a meesing of
the Executive Board, elsewhere published, that
about three thousand dollars are needed to com
plete the cost of constructing the Chapel to the
Female College, for which an appeal is to be made
to the citizens of Macon. It is a small sum among
so many, and ought to be raised without difficul
ty. Considered in a mere pecuniary point of view,
the Wesleyan Female College is no small contrib
utor to the business and prosperity of Macon. It
adds considerably to our resident population and
creates a demand which otherwise would have no
existence. The College will, therefore, amply re
turn to the business population of Macon all they
invest in it. Upon other classes it has equal |
claims. Its influence is, no doubt, felt in eleva
ting our social tone—increasing the social attrac
tions and enjoyments of the place—sustaining and
improving its character abroad. Its buildings,
crowning that beautiful hill, are a fine public
adornment, and the fact of its unrivalled success
and reputation as a Female College—the first es
tablished institution of the kind in the world—is
itself a laurel for Macon. Looking then, at every
thing but the most important thing—the main ob
ject of the College—the moral and intellectual
training of our daughters—surely it is short
sighted policy in our people to withhold any
reasonable aid to its increased prosperity and

BARBOUR COUNTY LANDS
HAVING purchased land in the West, I now
offer lor sale both my plantations, lying 0 n
the North Cowikee Creek. The place on which
I now reside, known as the Barnalvey Plantation
contains 2,475 acres, with a large proportion of
fresh and Hammock land. Tib re are on the plan
tation 1,400 -acres cleared, and in aline state of
cultivation, thoroughly drained, with a large num
ber ot well located ditches. Tlte dwelling is
commodious, having 6 large rooms, Deatly finish
ed,aud is situated within the corporate limits of
Glennville, convenient to the Colleges and
Churches. ’I ho out houses are in good repair and
sufficient for the accommodation of 100 negroes.
On th\s place, are two new gin houses, one of
which is propelled by water power, to which is
attached a grist mill, all in good order.
Lying broadside tltis place is ntv other planta
tion, recently owned by Col. W. ll* Owens, con
taining 901 acres. The dwelling, out*houses, gig
house and screw are all new and well finished,
and equally convenient to Glennville. Being de-’
termined to sell, 1 would not object to dividing
my lands to suit purchasers. To those acquainted
with these lauds 1 need not say more—to those at
a distance, I would say that they cannot be ex
celled in point of health or productiveness in east
Glennville is noted for the morality, intelligence
and refinement of its citizens. It is situated 12
miles from the Mobile and Girard Railroad, f>
miles from Jernig&n, a steamboat landing on tho
Chattahoochie river, and 16 miles from Eufattla,
to which point the South-Western Railroad of
Georgia will soon bo completed. For further par
ticulars, address me at Glennville, Alabama.
P.S. As 1 am axiousho carry out my plans west
I propose if 1 can find a purchaser tor ihe above
named lands, to let them go at the low price of
twelve dollars and a half per acre, cash.
And if not sold before Saturday the twentieth of
November next, 1 will have them divided into
two or more tracts by a survey, and oiler them
on that day at public outcry to tho highest bidder.
Land buyers might do well to examine the
lands before buying elsewhere.
