It seems that Sh Carolina bonds
to the amount of sit $400,000 have
to be paid next tar. The money
with which to met them cannot be
raised by taxationot by issuing and
selling new bonds. .t present prices,
it will require $ 00 of new bonds,
which bond,, whet it be so express
ed on their face or , will ultimate
ly have to be paid l gold. Now the
bonds that will b gued under the
coin-bill just past p lging the Stat;e
to redeem all of fts seruritiss, princi
pal and interes in gold, will rise
from $65 to $ 0 in ou enoy, and
command abo 90 in co , so that
the debt whico must be m t, will be
met by the i0,ae of about $470,000 of
coin-bonds, Instead of $600,000 of
bonds without specification of pay ment
in ooin. The State thus gins by this
one effeot of the measure $130,000,
which will morpfthan pay the differ
enoe between paying the interest on
the rest of its debt in coin and paying
it in currency. There are, however,
many other collateral benefits to ac
crue too numerous to mention.
But the measure is said to be "in
tended to benefit speoulators" Be it
so, if only it also benefits the people
of the State.
Candidly, it strikes us that the Na
tional Republican party has been al
lowed to take and hold the inside
track so far, in the financial affairs of
the Union. And we very much fear
that opposition, on principle, to every
thing originating with the Radicals in
this State, may give them also
the inside track upon the ques
tion of State finance, and oth
er questions almost as important. A
warning from us, who have no party
at present, but are equally rejected
by Radicals and Democrats, may
nevertheless attract some attention.

Trumbull reported, wi1 "meod
ments, from the Committee on tin
Judiciary, a Bill relating to the appel
late jurisdiction of the Supreme
Court. The Bill, as amended, de
olares that the judicial power of the
United States gives no power to the
Courts to deoide upon political ques
tions, and that it rests with Congress
to decide what Government is the es
tablished one in the State. - It prohi
bits the Supreme Court from enter
tertaining jurisdiction of any case
growing out of the execution of the
Reconstruction Acts, until the Gov
ernments of the late rebellious States
are reorganised by Congress as valid.
It repeals all Acts authorising ap.
peals to the Supreme Court in Babaes
Corpus proceedings. The President
is directed to 1u,ld and proceed with
all prisoners held in saic States by
military authority, without regard to
any civil proceedings or authorities
At a recent exhibition of the London
Photograph Society, flue Fpecimens of
colored photographs taken by the carbon

is no question about. the perunence of
the colors. They are as durable as the
matera:als of which they are composed.
'Ithe impressiofi consists only of gelati nm
and he pigment chosen for printing
chalk, sepin, Indian ink, carlbon, or
whatever other material best expresses
the effect sought in the reproduction.
Already, by this process, in the hands
of Baun, of Dornach, all the best
drawings of all the great galleries of
Europe have been made accessible at
trifling pieces, so perfectly reproduced
that in many cases it taxes the skill of
the practiced connoisseur to distinguish
reproduction from original. In spite of
the diffieilty of establishing a postion
on ground already occupied, says the
Londoe Times, this is the process, it
would seem, which mnst ultimatly oust
all other modes of photographic print.
A Southern editor thinks the k'nowl

"Oh, yes I you may my daughter ;
Hang your clothes on a hickory limb,
But don't go near the water."
