Help ! Help I
Such is the cry coming from various
parts of the State. And "help" for
what ? Why, for the relief of debt
ors. It really smacks of childishness,
to apply a very mild term, this appeal
to the Legislature for relief as be
tween debtor and creditor. Any
debtor who shows a determination to
do every thing in his power to pay his
debts, will find more relief ffon that
very creditor, between whom and him
self he wapts the State to interpose,
than from all that can be done by Leg
islation. The same rule will not apply
t> any two debtors, for one can pay all
his debts, ano- her half of his debts, an
other one-fourth of his, and so on.
Now if the Legislature interpose, it
will pass a general act equally apptli
cable to all cases. We venture the
assertion that there is not a man in
the State who will not be benefited
more by a non-interference oa t e
part of -tie State than by any
act ion of it looking to an adjustment
of private indebtedness. The fact is,
the creditor who has large claims
upon others is not disposed to flush
thm-n to the wall for a final settle
ment, for the simple fact that he does
not care to imitate the fool in the fa
ble who destroyed the feathered gold
The Cotton Market.
The heavy and sudden decline in
the.New York cotton market has do
pressed cotton buyers considerably.
Some are disposed to attribute this
fall in cotton prices to a discovery
tihat cotton was bringing too much.
Others again think that there has
been a v uch larger crop made' than
was at first supposed. Whatevtsr the
cAuse, whether either of time above, or
the control which speculators have of
the whole cotton trade, it is certain
that great doubt exists as to what will
be the upshot of this decline. It ap
pears reasonably certain that cotton
cannot go down much more. But even
if it should go down to twenty-five
cents per pound, it will prove suffi
ciently ronmutierati-e to induce every
farmer and planter to cultivate it.
The number of manufactories now
building and in contemplation
throughout the Southern States wifll,
whmen in operation, give a wholesome
iimpetus to the price of cotton.
An Ominous Announoement, I
It is publicly announced that the
mioney detectives of the Government
arec unab,le to distinguish some of the
:ouniterfe it bills now in circtilation,
from the genuine. Tlhis is unfortu
nate for a Govermnient that extends
over so vast a territory ais ours. Every
genuine bill may now be duplieated
with a counterfeit one, and thus
double the already enormous amount
of GIovernment liabilities. This may
eventually lead to a financial crash
without a parallel in the history of
