abridge except for participation in '..he rebel

.THE RICHMOND BANKS.-It will bc remem
bered thafcmfter the surrender of (Jen. Lee
the military in Georgia captured !$l<jO,000 in
gold, which was claimed by the Farmers, the
Exchange and the Bank of Virginia. at Rich
mond, Recent investigations of toe facts,
however, show that a low weeks before .the
evacuation of Richmond, the Legislature of
Virginia passed a law authorizing :he said
banks to loan the Confederate Government,
upon the faith of the State, $300,000 of gold,
lu pureba* : supplies for Lee's arm}. This
sum was placed by the respective bau ks to the
credit of the Confederate Government, aud,
befure thc surrender of Leo, S?O.OOO wan
paid, leaving $240,000, belonging to lae Cou
federate Government, with these banks at the
time of the evacuation. The. Government,
thtorefure, claims not only the $108,000 cap
tured in Georgia, but also the $140,000 addi
tional in custody tif the banks. This is the
present condition o? the question. The notes
of these banks have been bought up with the
expectation that the Government would re
Ih.quisb. its title tu the $240,000 of goid.
ARE GREENBACKS A LEGAL TENDEA?-Tn
the Superior Court yesterday, Judge Hook
delivered his decision in the case of Trustees
of Janet S. Montgomery vs. Gray, Mullarkej
vt Co., submitted to him at the adjourned,
term in January last. The defendants ten
dered to plaintiff the amount iu greenbacks
claimed to be due ou a lease for rent made in
Ic^oO. The plaintiff refused to accept the
tender, claiming that he was entitled to re
ceive payment in gold, or its equivalent iu
Judge Hook delivered a very ab-e and
elaborate opinion on the point raised, in which j
he sustained the position of the plaintiff, a:id |
decided thuc iu ali cases of contracts made
before the ?5th February, 1802 (the ?late o?
the Act masing greenbacks a legal tender),
coin alone, or its equivalent in cuireucy, was
a legal tender.
Business men would do well to bear this iu
mind when settling their claims or contracts
or purchases made anterior to the date men
tioned above-Augusta Chronicle k Sentinel.
KILLED BT LIGHTNING.-We learn that the
house of Mr*. Wyatt, above Hurricane Shoals,
Was struck by lightning on Saturday. 21st
jnstantj instantly killing three of her children
-onea grown daughter. We truly sympa
thize with this poor, afflicted, widowed mother.
We caution all persons not to Hand near
chimneys, walls of houses, open windows and
trees during thunder storms. The safest po
sition iodoors is thc centre of the room, and j
outdoors, about tweuty-live or thirty feet
from a tree ; within that distance life is en
dangered.-Spartatiburg Express, 25th inst.

AUGUSTA SATURDAY, Apn'l 28.
COTTON.-The late advices from Liverpool of
a decline of fr.ua ld. to .ltd. has caused a corres
ponding decline in the homo market. Wo beard
uf one sale this looming, of forty bales of Good
Middling, at 20c/, tho seller paying tho tax, mak
ing it ISc. per pound. Tho market is very un
settled, and wo do not think the sale hero roportcd
is a fair criterion. It is, however the only sale
heard of to-day.
