(JOLLMBI'S, MONDAY, NOVEMBER 22. 1858.
Money is the most expensive of all the conveni
ences of life; or rather of all the necessities of
commerce. It has no value of its own, and
adds nothinglo the value of anything else. Gold
and silver have, like other metals, an intrinsic
value, not only because of their utility, but be
ccause of their beauty ; but as money, they are
utterly worthless. We are so much in the habit
of associating the idea of value with money, that
it is difficult to take in this idea; but we will en
deavor to make ourself understood.
Money might be made of iron, but it could not
in that shape be made more valuable than the
raw iron. Take a piece of iron and make it into
some instrument of use or article of ornament,
and its value may bo increased by the value of the
labor put upon it; but no matter what the labor
and expense of putting it into the shape of money
its value is not increased. So with gold and sil
ver; make them into spoons or rings, or breast
pins, or watches,’ and you have increased their
value by the amount of labor put upon them, but
make them into money at no matter what ex
pense or labor, and they will purchase no more of
either metal than is put into it. Let the spoon,
the ring, the breastpin, the watch become un
fashionable, or valueless for the purposes for
which they were made, and the gold and silver in
them sink back to their money value, which is the
actual amout of metal they contain.— Comer
As our venerable friend has expressed his in
tention to deduce some important conclusions from
the above positions, it is very important that the
positions themselves, be correct. We differ with
him upon some of the ideas which he has advanced.
Money (by which we mean a circulating medi
um) as we apprehend it, is like cotton, corn or
anything else. It is valuable in proportion to its
utility and the labor required in its production-
It must serve some purpose in order to be valua
ble at all, and the question of utility being decided
affirmatively, the amount of labor necessary to its
production represents its quantum of value. A little
reflection will satisfy us that both of these considera
tions must enter into every estimate of value. If
for example, cotton were not an article of con
sumption and use, it would matter very little what
amount of labor was necessary to produce it. No
none wanting it, no one would exchange anything
for it, and, consequently, it would be worthless.
On the other hand, if it were useful, but its produc
tion involved no labor, it would be equally with
out value; no person, having a commodity which
was the product of labor, would exchange the
same for it. We repeat that utility and labor
are the measure of value. Is it worth while for
us to attempt to show that money is useful—that
it is a labor saving machine ? AVe presume not.
Any one, in order to be satisfied upon this point,
has but to reflect upon the intolerable inconveni
ence to which he would be subjected if, instead
of exchanging his product for an object of uni
versal desire, like money, he were compelled to
make an exchange in kind, or commodity for
commodity. Such a state of things is suited only
to the rudest and most barbarous ages of society.
Wherever, as in all civilized communities, divis
ion of labor exists to any degree, some circulating
medium is a necessity. It matters not what this
may be, whether cattle, in the time of Homer ;
iron, in the reign of Lyeurgus; brass, in the early
ago of Homan history or gold and silver, as is now
established throughout Christendom, something to
perform the functions of money has been adopted
by all nations making any pretension to civiliza
tion. Wo say, secondly, that the amount of labor
bestowed upon money is the measure of its value.
By this wo mean the labor employed in extracting
it from the ore ; in transporting it to the mint and
in the process of coining. AVhen we say that a
barrel of flour is worth in this city live dollars, it
is meant that the labor required to dig the metal
from the mine, to coin and transport the above
amount to Columbus, and the labor necessary to
produce, manufacture and deliver hero the barrel
of flour, are equal.
Assume that it were otherwise. Suppose that a
barrel of flour represented a day’s wages of the
laborer in New York, and suppose that the Peru
vian gold digger, with the proceeds of an equal
amount of labor could purchase in New York five
barrels of flour, what persuasion would be requir
ed to induce the wheat-growers of the latter place
to emigrate to the former? None other than the
assurance of a reasonable chance of living. They
would flock there in such vast numbers that a
famine would beau imminent consequence. For
the first year or two after the California fever broke
out, breadstuff's and provisons were enormously
high in that country; flour was worth S6O per
barrel. Yet even at this romantic figure, the case
is an illustration of the doctrine we have assert
ed. The labor of getting S6O, in gold dust was
not greater than the labor of producing and trans
porting to our Pacific coast one barrel of flour. —
AYe have spun this article to as great length as our
space will allow. AVo may recur again to it.
On Friday last the Senate passed a resolution
ordering 1,000 additional copies of the Comptrol

The History of Commerce—Professor Lelber’s Lec
Prof. Lieber gave a lecture in the rooms of the
Historical Society, introductory to a series on the
History of Commerce,and forming a portion ofthe
Post-Graduate Course of Columbia College. He
defined commerce as the fourth branch of indus
try, which connects the others—the appropriative
or collective, the agricultural and the manufac
turing branches. By a number of familiar illus
trations he exhibited the cosmopolitan nature of
commerce in its application to the simplest as well
as the most important affairs of life. lie discussed
its effect upon the character of men and institu
tions, and declared that while thirty years ago it
was generally asserted that commerce ruins all
public spirit, the strongest distinction between an
cient and modern times, is the fact that in mod
ern times a nation can grow rich and free at the
same time. England is infinitely freer than she was
two hundred yearr ago ; and our liberty—the peo
ple’s liberty, contradistinguished from federal lib
erty —came from the cities of the Middle Ages; it
is the creation of merchants and traders. It was
the guilds of the northern German cities that
fought against the Danish kings and formed the
Hanseatic League. Very frequently men belong
ing to these guilds were runaway slaves—serfs.
The German princes wanted fugitive slave laws,
but the cities refused, and established their free
dom. Now, these cities were the real storehouses
of wealth in the Middle Ages, the noblemen were
landowners, without much capital.
Modern liberty demands a high degree of civi
lization and history provides that the besj, school
districts have been also the most productive.—
Without commerce we cannot have wealth, with
out wealth we cannot have modern civilization,
we cannot have liberty.— New York Evening

Three New Territories.
Besides the Territories which Congress has or
ganized, we have now three others, which, grown
impatient of waiting, are taking steps to organize
Arizona, which has a population as yet only
counted by hundreds, has elected a Territorial
Delegate and sent him to Washington. A bill was
proposed last winter creating a Government for
this Territory, but it failed to pass. It will doubt
less be revived this winter, and will probably be
adopted in some shape.
Dacotah is also taking a definite form. Her
people have completed an independent temporary
organization of the Territory, to continue until
Congress shall give them the usual form of Terri
torial Government. State officers were appointed,
Legislature convened, laws passed, <fcc., and the
Minnesota Code of 1859 adopted. They assign as
their reason for this action, that they were left en
tirely without laws, except those of the Lynch or
der, and that the disorganized state of society
keeps away emigration. They poiut, in justifica
tion, to the precedent set them by California and
Oregon. Revolutionary as such a procedure
would be considered in any other country but the
United States, it is here an evidence of the law
loving and law-abiding character of the people,
and a guarantee that they are disposed to main
tain order and respect the obligations of citizen
Superior, or Ontonagon, is also moving. The
people there have made formal application to the
Legislature of Michigan and Wisconsin, to which
States that region belongs, for permission to form
an independent Territory, with a view to ultimate
admission as a State. This must eventually be a
great mining and agricultural region, and its pe
ninsular position between Lake Michigan and Su
perior, seems to adapt it for commerce, as well as
to require a separate political organization. It
has already a population of several thousand.
Harmony in South Carolina.
The readers of the Mercury, bearing iu mind its
eourse, must have observed that, whilst freely ex
pressing our own views of measures and princi
ples, and advocating the course in our opinion
rightful and important to the south, wo have at
the same time abstained from censure. AVhile
opening our columns to a wide range of temperate
discussion, that the truth might be elicited, we
have sought to draw together, or at least not sep
arate in the State those who, agreeing on general
and important principles, yet differ iu matters less
essential, whether by-gone or in the womb of the
future. AVe have allowed a free expression of
views on the Conference Kansas Act, on the re
opening of the African Slave Trade, and on the
powerful speech of Senator Hammond with the
condition of the South and her prospects for the
future. But we have eschewed all division on such
issues. This course has been pursued, because the
tide of events is surely driving us together, and
we are satisfied that differences in South Carolina
in regard to the General Government, and the
North will be obliterated by time. They are con
jectural rather than real—matters of speculation
rather than fact. There are events before us that
will unite all the true men of the South ; and we
desire that South Carolina, by her union and the
moral weight she has ever possessed in the coun
sels of the South, resulting from her unanimity of
opinion and conduct, shall bear her part in the
drama of the future, whatever it be. Some of our
leading men have confidence in the Democratic
party of the North—others have none. Some
suppose that Black Republican sectionalism is de
clining in power —others that it is increasing.—
Some are confident of the strength of our pres
ent position in the Union—others are confident of
its weakness. The crisis that will settle these con
jectures or deductions is near at hand. What rea
son is there, then, for pressing these differences of
opinion between those who agree in principle and
who go together in policy ? Why should it be
sought to raise issues and contentions on such
matters ? On the great essential measures before
the country we are agreed. Our public men will
all oppose in Washington the increase of the
Tariff'for protection, appropriations for Internal
Improvements, and anti-slavery in every shape
and form. They will have there to fight the
Black Republican majority in the next Congress
in all their insidious and oppressive measures.
They will have to seek the union of the South on
State Right grounds. And they will stand to
gether, we doubt not, united in tho fight.
If the Black Republicans are defeated in Con
gress, and defeated in their effort, at the next
Presidential election, to grasp the power of the
General Government for the accomplishment of
theirjpurposes, South Carolina will fully partici
pate and unitedly rejoice in their defeat. On the
contrary, should they be successful, we have a
right to suppose that those who are united in
principle will be united in measures of redemption
and security. The State has distinctly marked
out her policy, and it is wise to presume that we
will be united. Is it wise to establish personal
antagonisms on future speculative division ? We
hold the opinion that it is not. Wo deem it al
most certain that within less than two years all
true men in South Carolina or at Washington will
stand entirely together. At all events, this is our
hope. So strong is our conviction of the steady
progress and fatal purposes of this powerful Black
Republican faction, that this is our belief. Act
ing under such impressions, we shall continue a
steady advocacy of harmony and a generous con
fidence, which is the surest means of securing it
amongst those agreeing in principle. AVhen “he
shock comes South Carolina can be prepared,
without heart-burnings and division, to do her
part with all the strength of her ancient renown.
By wise counsels we are satisfied such will be the
result.— Charleston Mercury.

A greater misconception does not exist abroad,
in regard to the South, than that which ranks its
system of labor as opposed to the success of its
manufactures. Copying an article from this pa
per on the subject of the development of manu
facturing industry in Mississippi, Louisiana, Ala
bama and Georgia, the Newburyport (Mass) Her
ald says: “Tue Picayune makes no allusion to
that which will prove an insurmountable obstruc
tion in their way—that is, negro slavery.”
Negro slavery, the world now acknowledges,
has made cotton production in the South success
ful, which, under equal advantages of soil and
climate, has proved a failure everywhere else.
Slave labor is equally certain to enable the South
to manufacture so as to undersell the rest of the
The factory in Mississippi, which we mentioned
as producing a dividend of twenty-six per cent, on
the capital invested, is now worked almost entirely
by slave labor. The most successful manufactory
in Alabama, one which, from a capital so small as
to promise no favorable result, has grown to be
among the first in the extent of its productions in
the South—for years invested the profits of the
establishment in negroes to spin and weave and is
now almostexclusively worked by slave a labor.The
rope and cotton factory in this city, whose career
has been one of singular prosperity, has for the
present suspended operations, to the enable sub
stitution of negro for white labor.
So far,J|the experiments with negro labor in our
manufacturing establishments have proved sig
nally successful. In fact, we begin to think that
our system will enable the South to compete with

There would be, without an argument, we would
suppose, an important advantage in rearing up
a class who, from generation to generation, were
attached to our factories, whose labor was under
the control of one mastermind. The fluctuations
of prices and the disasters of strikes would*be en
tirely avoided; and the fires of the factory, once
lighted would never be extinguished by any of
those casualties to which the enterprises of a sim

But an abundance of white labor ean be found
in the South, at least in the neighborhood of the
larger cities. It would seem that the people of
the North supposed labor for the white man was
disreputable in this latitude. So far from this
being a fact, it is a badge of honor, and more ac
tive, more industrious, more laborious white men,
do not exist in any section ofthe Union than at
For the success of manufacturing establish
ments, we have really an advantage over the
people of New England —white labor abundant
and cheap—and slave labor that may be cultiva
ted and that improves for generations in apititude
for the employment; and we venture the predic
tion, that when the surplus capital of the South
becomes deeply interested in this species of in
dustry, the New England States will find its great
advantage—leaving out of the question the neigh
borhood of the cotton fields—in the possession of
of slave labor.— N. O. Picayune.
Touching Scene.-— Last week, Miss Mary Ann
Gunn, aged 16 or 17, a pupil at the Institute for
the Blind, in this city, somewhat suddenly de
ceased. She had recently embraced religion, and
during the lucid intervals of her illness, expressed
herself willing to die—indeed anxious to “depart
and be with Christ.” She gave directions in re
gard to her funeral obsequies—desired the Rev.
Dr. Boring to preach her funeral, and that “The
night of the Grave,” and “Mount Vernon” should
be 6uug by her associates on the occasion. The
funeral scene was one of touching, thrilling inter
est. Around the cold remains of the departed, were
grouped her sorrowing, sightless companions,
singing the favorite requiems of one they had nev
er seen, but had learned to love, and whose voice
was missing from its wonted place; and whose
eyes, though never permitted to look out upon the
brightness of earth, were now unveiled and per
mitted to gaze with rapture and delight upomtho
undimmed and unfading glories of the Spirit wrold,
“with the saints in light,” now mingling her voice
with theirs in the song of Redemption. How aw
fully mysterious must such an event be to one
born blind, and who has never looked upon the
cold, inanimate form, the winding sheet, the coffin,
