A. E. Cochran, of Ga., and, at his suggestion, laid upon the table until the re port of the committee of eleven should be disposed of:— 1. Reodved, That the Convention having in view the appreciation of the bonds of the Confederate States i \ the hands of the plan ters, who shall furnish the Government in its emergency with the products of tlieir labor in exchange for such bonds, with the further view of securing their general circulation in payment of debts, at least at par value, re spectfully recommend to Legislatures of the several States of the Confederacy, to author ize by enactment the several banks therein to issue bills —say to the amount of one-third of their capital stock—based upon such Con federate State bonds, dollar for dollar, under such regulations as each Legislature may deem wise and proper. 2.

Mr. McNeill, of S. C., laid upon the table the following resolutions : Ist. Resolved, That in consideration of the fact that there will be held in London during the next year a “World’s Fair also, that the productions and resources of the Confederate States are comparatively but little known to the world, it is considered by this convention desirable that the govern ments of the several States, and also the Confederate States, shall take such steps as will place them before the world in proper manner 2n<f. Reserved, That, the Governors of each of the Confederate States are requested to appoint at once suitable persons to make such .-.elections of agricultural products, native woods, mineral ores, Ac., as iu their judg ment, will best accomplish the object desired, and make such arrangements as will ensure their proper representation. R<solved, That a copy of these resolutions be forwarded to the Governors of the several States of the Confederacy, by the President of this Convention. The committee appointed to select Vice- Presidents for the Convention, reported the names of Williams Rutherford, of Georgia, Thomas McNeill, of South Carolina, J. \V Castens, of Alabama and George K. Walker, of Florida, which report, on motion, was adopted. J. 11. 11. Washington, of Georgia, Chair man ot the coinmitee of twelve, aunounetd that tho committee had not been able to agree, aud submitted the report of the ma jority. The following minority report from the com mi • tee, was submitted by Ex-Gov ernor Broome, of Florida : MINORITY REPORT. Y our committee charged with the duty of presenting to this Convention, a plan for se curing the largest amount of financial aid to to the Oovcrnmeut ot* the Confederate States, have instructed me to submit the following REKOBT: Will iout entering into a. discussion of the causes wliicli liave leil to our present political relations to the balance of the world, we would simply say, that we are citizens of the Confederate States of America, and are ready to respond to every obligation due from good and loyal citizens to their Government. The form of Govern moot adopted by the Confed erate States, commands in the main the hearty approval of our whole people. The President elected and his Constitulionul ad visers appointed under the Provisional Gov ernment, possess the confidence of the peo ple to an extent equaled only by that awarded to the father oi his country, and the patriots called into his councils in the earliest and purest days of the late United States Gov ernment. The war which has been forced upon us, we recognize as the offspring of abolition j fan a tieism, and aided by an organized political; despotism is designed to destroy the property, 1 and forever to crush the liberty and power! of these States. The issue presented is ab solute submission, or complete subjugation. That issue has been accepted. The country has been called upon to furnish the men and the money necessary for the chastisement of impudent invaders. The call has been an swered by our youngs an extent en-i tirely beyond the capacity of the Govern ment to accept. Nut by mercenary hirelings, but by the pride and flower of the country. Men whose bosoms are filled with the glori ous traditions of 177th Men who are ready, to offer their lives for the preservation of con-’ stitufional liberty; and of all that is lovely! and endearing in home and its affections.—: These are the men who constitute our Con-! federate army —they arc our sons, our broth- 1 era, our neighbors, our friends and ourselves. 1 It was t<i consider the means best adapted to provide the money necessary for the support of such a Government, such an arm}', that you gentlemen, cotton planters, assembled this Convention on the aniversary of the memorable and over glorious 4th of July, 177 - f Your committee find themselves happily relieved from the necessity of appealing to the patriotism or liberality of the cotton plan ters present or absent, in behalf of this great object. All seem ready and anxious to con-’ tribute according to their ability. Your committee will, therefore, devote themselves to the developeutent of a contribution, which in their judgement will afford to the Govern ment the largest possible aid. It has been proposed that each cotton planter shall agree to deliver to his factor, to be sold by a day certain, such portions of bis crop us bo can spare for investment, and require the pro ceeds invested in the Bonds of the Confeder ate States of America. With great respect for the wisdom of those who have suggested and advocated this plan, 1 your Committee must express a doubt of its en ti re practieahi li ty. ('evln inti/ is,at th is time , n necessity with the (Government. To what extent can this plan be relied upon with cer tainty ? Let us see. A planter who makes one hundred bales of cotton and sells it for twelve cents per pound, or sLty dollars per bale, will have an income of six thousand dollars. Suppose such a planter can meet his actual expenses with two thousand dol lars, then he may invest his surplus of four thousand in the bonds of the Confederate 1 States. On the other hand, suppose he should receive for his crop only five cents per pound, his income will be only two thou sand five hundred dollars, which will leave| him only five hundred dollars investment. — j With such a scale of prices the investment in the Confederate bonds would be very small; neither meeting the wants of the! Government, nor the patriotic desire of the. people. But it may said that such a price is not likely to prevail for the growing crop.— 1 Your Committee hope that it will not, and! readily concede that it should not. They know that the last three American crops have averaged over 4,100,000 bales, that/ these have been sold at fair prices, and have! been insufficient for the demand. The stock’ now remaining on hand is considered sufii-! eicrit for only t wenty weeks regular consmnp-j tion, while mulling uplands are quoted and: scarcely to be bad in Liverpool, at 7<J. j equal, at an ordinary exchange, to about 15} i cents, and are now worth in New York,! about 14J cents per pound. The growing! crop is conceded on all bands to cover a less area of land, than that of the year 1860, and) is not likely to exceed, if it equals, the aver-| age product of the last three years. Under such circumstances we should ordinarily be justified in expecting a very high range of prices ; but the circumstances by which we are now surrounded render ordinary rules of calculation entirely uncertain.— Should the blockade of the cotton ports con tinue, the crop cannot he sold for money, except at ruinously low prices. Cotton is a favorite security and purchases are usually made by the use of credits. A house in Savannah, for instance, whom we will call A., desires to purchase one thousand bales of cotton. lie writes to bis friend 13. in Macon, requesting him to purchase it for him and draw upon him at, sixty days for the amount, and enough over, to cover the discount, commissions, freight, &c., all of which is promptly done. The bank desiring exchange on Savannah, which is worth a premium, readily discounts the draft, and thus the funds arc raised to give the planter the money for his cotton ; but you observe, that although a cash purchase, the casli is borrowed. J>. sends the cotton forward to A., that he may disposed of it and get the money to protect Lis draft. A ships the cotton to Liverpool, and at the maturity of B’h sixty day draft, draws upon the agent or partner of the Liverpool house, who resides iu New York or New Orleans at sixty days,! for the amount, which draf tis in lien upon * the cotton sent forward. The Bank in Sa vannah desiring exchange on New Y ork or New Orleans, to sell at a premium, rpadily discounts the bill, and supplies the money to pay B’s draft. This draft matures in New York or New Orleans, and then the agent or partner draws at sixty days sight, upon the house in Liverpool, and discounts the draft with some Banker or merchant, who wants European exchange. Before its maturity the cotton is sold to the manufac turer, or exporter, on three months and ten day’s credit, aud his note discounted and money raised to pay the draft. I hus it is seen that the one thousand bales having passed through a system of cre dits covering a period of nearly ten months, finally furnished the money to pay for its own original purchase, and yet everybody lias been paid at maturity ; aud this is tiie history, substantially, of nine out of every ten. bales of cottjo raised in the Confeder ate States of America. These various credits are based upon the cotton, and could not exist without its .ship ment. Destroy this system of credit and the whole eotton crop sold, would have to be paid for in cash, and its value would be measured by the avarice of a few specula tors and corporations, who might chance to Lave a few millions of dollars. Thus it is seen, that with our ports block aded, the exportation of cotton prohibited — tiie basis of credit destroyed, and our pluu ters bound to sell on a day certain, the pros pect of a large investment in Confederate States Stocks is by no means flattering. Y our Committee however, will present for your consideration a plan, which if adop ted by tLe Government, they think may be relied upon to meet its financial wants. — Instead of the planter selling his cotton for bank bills, and investing them in lhe bonds of the Confederate States, let the Govern ment enter the uiarket as a purchaser, at a minimum price, of all the cotton offered for sale, that is not wanted by- other purchasers at or above that price. Let the price established as a minimum be a fair one; say the average price paid for the last three crops. Let .Middling cot tons be assumed as the basis, and the price be graded above and below as is now. done in regular commercial transactions. No derangement need be experienced in the management of the crop, l’he planters’ fac tors would sell it as usual, but the Gov ernment Agent or Sub-Treasurer being tlie best bidder, would of course command the staple. The payment should be made iu Treasury notes of the Confederacy, of de nominations ranging from live to one hun dred dollars having five years to run, and should be made the general circulating me dium. They should bear a small interest, aud be convertible into 8 percent, bonds, at the pleasure of the holder. These Treasu ry uotes being received at par by the cotton planters would become immediately a paper circulation of uniform value throughout the Confederate Stales, and would be a credit equal to gold and silver to the Government, in the purchase of all commissary and Quar ter Master’s stores—in the payment of troops, and in discharge of pressing engage ments of every description. Th.e fact an nounced that the great cotton planting inter est of the country, having $2000,000,000 vegetable gold almost ready to gather, had voluntarily placed it at the disposal of the Government, receiving as cash their Treas ury notes in payment, and that such aid had been accepted, would exert a moral effect upon the European nations which it would be difficult to estimate. The Government, backed by 200,000,000 dollars in eotton, | which to the world has become a necessity nearly equal to that of bread, would be able, witb such a concentration of commercial power, to control the question of commer cial treaties with the principal commercial nations of the world. Our credits would immediately be established in the principal money marts, and a peace upon our own terms, be conquered at an early day. But the advantages to result to our peo ple individually would be scarcely less im portant than those that would be conferred upon our Government. The crop, in this way, instead of remain ing in the planter’s Gin House, or being locked up on planter’s account iu his factor's stores, would be actually sold, and the pro ceeds go into active circulation —thus t Ho lding the planter to pay Id’s merchant, the the merchant to pay his banker, and the banker to discharge his obligations to the community. The country would show its capacity for prosperity even in war, and w’hile failure is legibly written upon the financial schemes of our enemies, our Gov ernment and people would show a strength aud energy uneaqualled by any young Gov ernment of which history Las jet spoken.— Nor would the cotton planter be alone bene litted. The establishment of a Treasury note currency upon such a basis, would ena ble the Government to pay for the vast sup plies of grain, flour, bacon, pork, forage, Ac., rieceseary for the vigorous prosecution of the war, m a currency equal to specie, and thus distribute its benefits throughout the entire country. Such a system your Committee bellow, would effectually concentrate the cotton crop where it could be made most effective for our political and commercial benefit, . nd at the same time would impart life, energy, and prosperity to the various and multiplied interests of the country at, large. They, therefore, recommend the adoption of the following resolutions : Resolved , That in the opioion of this Con vention, the best and most extensive aid that can be given by the cotton planters to the Government financially, will be by sel ling to tlieir agents the entire cotton croD, at a fair price, say the average price of the last three crops, and recieve in payment for tiie same, their Treasury notes, bearing a low rate of interest, and to be used as a cir culating medium, and to be converted into 8 per cent, bonds at the option of the hol der. Jicsolced, That should the Government decide to outer the market as is here sugges ted, we pledge ourselves to sell our entire crop of cotton for the said Treasury notes, and to use our best efforts to induce every cotton planter in the country to do the same. Itesoli ed, That should the Government de cline to cuter the market as a purchaser, we then recommend to our fellow planters throughout the Confederates a‘es, to invest their whole income above actual expenses, in the bonds or Treasury notes of the Gov ernment. That this Couvcution will 9end delegates to Kiehmoud to confer with the VOLUME XXXIX—NO 17. Go\ornmcnt, aud, if possible, procure tbcir to tlio proposition contained in tho a,ht resolution.

That wo do heredy declare our wiilingnc.ss to aid the (Government with the entire Cotton crop, if the same shall be needed for its use. —d H( solred, r l hat we recommend to the Cotton Planters of the several States, to hold meetings in their counties and pledge themselves to aid the Government, with such ol the glowing crop as may be required for that purpose. 3d. Retailed, That wo recommend to the Congress of the Confederate States to con sider and devise some system by which the Cotton and other crops may become availa ble in support of the credit of the Govern ment, either as a security for loans of money to the Government, or as a basis for bonus and treasury notes issued thereby. 4th. Retained, That it, in the judgment of Congress, the purchase and control of Cot ton and other products be deemed advisable, we recommend an issue of the public credit for that purpose, in the purchase by the Government of such part or the whole of our exportable products, as may be deemed expedient by Congress. sth. Resolved, That we recommend to the Congress of the Confederate States, to au thorize the issue of Treasury notes of dennmi ! nations suited for circulation as a currency, for an amount equal to the exigencies of tho Government. Such notes to be paid out as money iu payment of all Government dues, and made receivable lor all taxes and duties, and convertible into eight per cent bonds of the Confederate States, at the pleasure of the bolder. fith. Jusolved, That wo recommend tlio several Confederate States and the people thereof, that they receive and pay out at par the Treasury notes of the Confederate Gov ernment, aud that it be recommended to tho ‘Cotton Planters and all other citizens of tho Confederate States, to pledge themselves t< receive said Treasury notes at par value, for their cotton, and other commodities, and fur all the uses of currency. 7rh. Resolved, That we recommend to the planters and farmers in the Confederate States, to invest at least one half of the pro ceeds of the sale of their entire crops in tho eight per cent, bonds of the Confederate States: and to Capitalists and persons having money to lend, that they invest in like man ner in these bonds. A long, able and interesting discussion upon these two reports took place,—partici pated in—by Messers. C. G. Baylor, Duff Gieen, Geo. K. Walker, Gen. Whitfield, J. E. Broome, A. S. Atkinson, J. IT. R. Wash ington, W. K. ('all, and other members of the Convention, and after a test vote, tho minority report was withdrawn, and that of the majority adopted. The resolutions laid upon the table du ring the morning session, by Hon. A. E. Cochran, of Georgia, were taken up, amt after some discussion, adopted. The resolutions laid upon the table by T. McNeill, of South Carolina, were taken up anu adopted. The Committee of twelve, through their Chairman, J. 11. R. Washington, presented the following supplemental report, which was adopted : Your committee charged with the duty of presen fir g to this Convention a plan f r Se eming the largest amount of financial aid to the Government of the Confederate States, have instructed me to submit the following supplemental. REPORT: One of the papers referred to there is an extended argument by General Duff Green, accompanied by statistical tables bearing upon the subject of finance generally, and the value of convertible treasury notes par ticularly. From the experience and ability of the author, and the great labor bestowed upon the statistical department, your com mittee believe that it embodies a large mass of valuable information, and recommend that the same be published, under the di rerction of the officers of this convention. Adopted. J. U. U. Washington, of Georgia, pre sented : Resolved, That when this Convention ad journs, it will adjourn to meet in this city on the 15th October next, and that we invite the Agriculturist:* id every State and county in the Confederate States, to meet with us on *liat occasion, and unite with us in pre • nting such other and further measures for the support of our Government as may be just and proper. The following resolution presented by A. S. Atkinson, of Georgia was adopted: Resolved, That J. 11. R Washingsan, T. G. Ilolt, E. I). llugueniu and A. Cochran, be a committee with power, if in their opin ion the public exigencies require it, to call a meeting at an earlier day. Mr. Baylor, of Georgia, presented the fol lowing resolution which was adopted : Resolved, That a copy of the proceedings of this Convention, be transmitted to the I‘resident of the Cotton Planters’ Conven tion of Georgia, by which body the meeting of this Convention was first suggested. The Convention, then, after a vote of thanks to its officers, and the passage of a resolution, requesting the newspapers of the Confederate States to publish the proceed ings, adjourned, to meet in Macon, on the 15th day of October next.
