FOR MAYOR OF MACON,
HOEW. A. HUFF.
THE NATIONAL BANKS.
The national banks of the country are
now about 1,111) in number. They have
probably the most powerful organization
of any class of corprntions excepting rail
roads. Bank presidents are not few or
far between on the floors of Congress. They
are watchiug with great interest to see
whether the Secretary of the Treasury in
tends to try to force au exchange of theii
se< urities by recommendations in his forth
coming annual report. It is probable that
ttie Secretary will take a stand on that
pi inciple, w hether he recommends it in
his report or not. The banks w ill tight
that, and endeavor to effect a reduction of
the lax on circulations and deposits, which
tax now supports the bureau of the Comp
troller of the Currency, and has rolled up
a surplus of about $17,000,1)00.
There is some talk mound the Treasury
of a scheme to increase the deposits of se
curity for banking to one hundred pet
cent, instead of ninety, and require an
elastic specie reserve, of small amount a:
first, and gradually to increase it till the
banking business rests on a specie basis
But the charm of the thing is, that the cir
culating notes to be issued are to be legal
tenders, and the bank notes are all to be
called in. This scheme is to bring about
specie payment, by gradually lockiug up
a large portion of our gold, and distribut
ing ciiculating notes in such a way thai
. every banking establishing would lose its
1 identity so far as its currency was con
cerned, and the United States Treasury
would be the grand redeeming agency.
Au examination of the official tabulai
statement, just published by the Comp
troller of the Currency, of the reports >t
the 1,119 National Banks of the United
Slates, shows .that their available cash
means is equal to about 50 per cent, ot
their demand liabilities except circulation
The true way of calculating the strength
of our National Banks to withstand any
pressure or panic, is undoubtedly to throw
the circulation and the bonds deposited to
secure it entirely out of the account. The
bonds deposited with the United States
Treasurer are ample security for the cir
culation, and would be considered so even
if we were on a specie basis. The entire
cash means ef the banks is, therefore, the
proper measure of their ability to pay de
On October 3, 1872, the 1,119 National
Banks of the United States owed demand
liabilities as follows : Individual deposits,
$813,299,1)71 ; due to banks and bankers.
$143,836,430 ; United States deposits, $7,
853,772; deposits of United States dis
bursiug ofHcers, $4,563,833 ; unpaid divi
dends, $3,149,749, Total demand liabili
ties, $772,694 455.
To meet any pressure for liquidation oi
the foregoiug they bad cash means on
hand as follows: Legal tender notes.
$102,074,104; specie, $10,929,756; Na
tional Banknotes $15,787,296; fractional
currency, $2,151,747 ; Clearing House
checks, $110,086,315; due from banks
and bankers, $128,180,541 ; United States
certificates of deposit, $6,710,000; Clear
ing House certificates, $1,555,000. Total,
$885,406,760, or nearly 50 per cent of the
The amount of United States bonds de
posited to secure circulation is $382,046,
400, and the amount of National Bank
notes outstanding is $333,495,027. Even
counting these bonds at par, there is a
margin of $48,551 000 over and above
what would be required to pay their out
standing circulation, or enough to pay 6
per cent more on all their demand liabili
ties. All thiß leaves out of consideration

The Constitution responds :

A GEOKGIA BtII’KRSTITION.
At the dead of the night, the dead of the night,
There’s a sound along the rails,
And the creaking of a whirling crank
Like the flapping of iron flails,
With the long, low roll that heralds the storm
Over sunburnt fields of grain,
With the sullen roar of the rain in the wood,
Comes the invisible tram.
There’s the trembling ground, theswirls of air,
And the shout of the gauge between
The quivering rails, but never a light
Or shadow or specter is seen.
It stops nor stays by station or town,
But sweeps in its viewless flight
To a city whose beautiful noils are hewn
From splendid quart ies of light.
And the white moon spreads, as the sound
A shroud of silver and gray.
For ttie night lies cold on the lap of the earth,
Like the corpse of a beautiful day.
It bears away, in invisible freight.
The treasures of falling men—
The count 1 ■ opportunities lwsl,
Ami tin- beautiful which might have been.
I’lie fruitless dead, who have died in youth,
Ere ttie grain of life had come ;
Painters whose pictures were only dreams,
And poets whose lips are dumb.
The brave young dead, the fair young dead,
Whose hearts were a throng of love.
Who folded their arms in the morning of life,
To pass to that cily a hove.
Maiden and wife in the robe and crown,
And lips like blood of the rose;
Beautiful babes, that died in smiles,
Like a light that comes and goes.
And often we see through the dead of I he night
Though the eyes are closed in sleep.
The phantom train, with its precious freight,
From a lowland still and deep.
And we dream till the morning, bright and
Lies over the church-yard sod.
And awakes the Lazarus sleep of night,
With reviving hand of God.

TUE SLAVES OF THE SOUTH FREED TO SAVE
TUB NORTH FROM DEFEAT —PRESI-
DENT LINCOLN'S CONSCIENTIOUS
SCIt U PLES AND CONSTITU
DEPORTATION AND COLONIZATION OF THE
BLACKS. MR. LINCOLN’S REMEDY.
From the Richmond Dispateli.j
The Galaxy for December contains a
paper written by Mr. Gideons Welles—
which gives the history of Lincoln's Entail
cipation Proclamation. Mr.Welles was
Mr. Lincoln's Secretary of the Navy, and
speaks from personal knowledge.
“The contrabands” were, from the be
gining of the war, a scource of great
trouble to (lie truly loyal. By the Con
stitution, property in slaves was fully guar
anteed and United States laws required
Federal authorities to restore owners all
fugitive negroes. As the war was waged
by the Washington functuaries with loud
professions to maintain ana preserve ttie
Constitution, any interference with the
property in, or the status ot. the negro,
would be a flat and paten contradiction of
the avowed objects of tbe war. Many of
the Federal Generals deemed it their duly
to respect the Constitution and laws, and
they did so by sending back to their mas
ters tbe slaves that fled to their camps
But this proceeding excited violent protes
tations from the fanatics. “The orders
(says Mr. Wells) of such officers as Gene
rals McClellan, Hailcck, Dix and otheis,
prohibited the fugitives from coming with
in the army lines, caused great dissatisfac
tion at the North, wilhoul appeasing jiny
at the South.” Stimulated by this fanatic
feeling. General Hunter took it upon him
self to proclaim the freedom of the slaves
in South Carolina. Georgia, Florida. Pres
ident Lincoln promptly (19th of May,
1862) issued a counter proclamation, an
nulling that of Hunter, saying that the
question of freeing the slave "I reserve to
myself, and cannot feel justified in leaving
to the decisions of the commanders in (lie
‘■Lincoln, who had scruples of con
science. appreciated the difficulties of his
position. He had taken no oatli to defend
the Union. The oath he had taken was
simply “to protect, preserve and defend
the Constitution of the United States ”
To his plain, practical mind, it was rather
an odd way of preserving tlie Constitution,
by disregarding its provisions and tramp
ling it under foot. He sought to gel
around the difficulty by attempting to get
the border States, Maryland, Kentucky
and Missouri, to decree emancipation of
their slaves, for which the Government
should pay them. For he again and again
confessed that no authority but that of the
States could touch the subject. A part of
his scheme was the exportation of the lie
grocs. for he was thoroughly convinced
that the two races, both free, "could not
dwell together in unity, and ns equals, in
their social relations. There was, lie
thought, a natural antagonism between
the whites and blacks, which could not
and ought not to be overcome. He there
fore, at an early period of his administra
tion, some time before his emacipation
proclamation was projected, devised plans
for the deportation and colonizing of the
colored popufation. in these various pro
jects of deportation and colonization, he
was earnestly sustained by the Attorney
General, Bates, the Postmaster General,
Mr. Blair, and the Secretary of the Inte-
rior, Mr. Caleb Smith.” Even when his
emancipation proclamation was issued,
deportation continued to be a favorite idea
with him. and he never abandoned it.
“As to the motive which prompted his
emancipation proclamation, we are told
by Mr Wells, "be was governed- not by
sympathy for the slave, but by a sense of
duty, and the obligations which, as chief
magistrate, he owed to his country."
It was notuntil after McClellan's failure
on the Peninsula that Mr.Liocoln recogniz
ed the necessity of abolition to save the

language of Mr. Welles, this humiliating
condition was extorted from Ins lips :

it, this must bo tin* verdict of history.
The quibble by which he got rid of his
<>atli'"to protect, preserve and defend the
Constitution" is tints given :
“If there was no constitutional authority
In tlio Government to emancipate the
si ves, neither was there any authority,
specified or reserved, for the slaveholders
to resist Ihe Government or secede from
it. (?) They could not at the same time
throw oil' tlio Constitution and invoke its
aid. Having made war upon the Govern
ment, they were subject to the incidents
and calamities of war. and it was our duty

1 In\ di ;• thus satisfied his conscience, he
called a meeting of Ids Cabinet. Mr.
Welles gives the following account of the
-Kuril in August—it has been said on
saUii'diiy, and if so. it was, I think, the
2d of tlm> mouth —the President called a
-pecial meeting of the Cabinet The meet

Mansion, and not in ttie Council Chamber,
when: the regular sessions were usually

Blair, who had gone to his country rcsi

not mistaken, Mr. Chase was also, from
some cause, absent from tbe first meeting

whites might he brought down, but the
negroes could not be lifted to a much
higher plane than now occupied. Ho hud

slavery on the enterprise and welfare of
the country through a long life, had de
plored its effects, and given freedom to his
own slaves, and wished them and their
fellows in Africa, or elsewhere than in the
United Slates. He was fully convinced
that the two races could not live and
thrive in s cial proximity. The result of
any attempt to place them oil terms of
equality would be strife, contention, ami a
vicious population, as in Mexico. The
whites might be debased, but the blacks
