Gold for Cotton,
With every word which we printed
from the Augusta Constitutionalist lust
wo.k against hoarding we most hearti
ly agree, and so far as demanding gold
for cotton has the tendency to encour
age hoarding, we would utter nothing
but censure against it. But other
and deeper questions are involved,
and we think it not imnprobable that
by the fall of 1870, unless there be an
u l3xpected change in the management
of our national finances, all the cotton
plnters of the entire South will. have
followed the example of the cotton.

and not greenbacks, in exchungo for
1. The Southern States will not be
truly represented in Congress during
the next four years. The ilifluenice
they will exort on the government,
then, seems to depend exclusively up
on the skill of our planters in escap

which they now labor, and in control
Sliug, in tlucir individual capacity, the
cotton and tobacco and sugar crops.
By demanding gold, and not green
backs, for their produce, they will ex
ert an influence by no menus to be de
spised, and the growing disposition,
just as they commence to escape from
their indebtedness, to cxert this tre.
mendous power, is a fNct worthy of
the most serious attention of Stateimen.
The fear of the Northern press to no
tice this new form of what they
dcubtless consider as rebellion, or
their strange oversight of it and its
serious and almost irresistible conse
quences in modifying, if not positive

the future, is wonderfully significant.
That the despised South should, with

AN InPORTANT JURY BILL.-The
bill of Mr. Spoor before the Senate is t
an 'important measure. 'It provides I
that the jhrors now drawn for the
Spring term of the Superior Courts in n
this State shall be declared competent.
It also provides that the Judges of E
the Superior Courts shall appoint be
fore the adjournment of the Spring I
term three Intelligent and honest t
persons in each county, who, it con
nection with th~e ordinary and clerk v
of the Superior Court, shall prepare a a
lift of intelligent male citizens between
the agos of twenty-one and sixty, who i
have never been convicted of crime, c
subjected to imprison ment in the n
penitentiary, or t'fl.ne of $100, or im. 1
prisonment in any jail not exceeding
thirty days. The boxes are arranged t
similar to those at present and num
l;ered one and two.
The three citizens charged with
preparing the jury lists are sworn by
the J udge, continuing in office two
years, and roceiving such componsa
tion as the Judge may allow. Before
the adjournment of the Spring term,
the three citizens, with the ordinary
and clerk of the Superior Court, shall n
proceed to draw,, as is-yrescrlbod by I
law, a sufficient number of jurors. - s
Jurors receive one dollar per diem for
their services. Mr. Speer is a work

GOLD CONTRACTS.-The N'ew York
Coinercial Idvertiser thin'; that
the adoption of Semi or .Tihrman r
finance bill would, in all proba a
bility, have a very impertant re
sult, not at all contributing to the
interest of the North or* promotive of
the resumption of speoie paynbonts.
The South, it says, has a deep-rooted t
prejudice against greenbacks and Na
tional Bank notes, which now shows
itself in some sections in a demand for
gold in payment for cotton. In the
event of gold contracts being legaliz
ed, the cotton States would be free to
c.atablish their trade upon a coin basis,
and in all probability would do so,
with the result of draining the North
of a large amount of Its coin, and
thereby postponing the period of re
sumption. None familiar with the
feeling in banking and commercial
circles at the South will deem this
(langer a light one.
New Orleans papers gives details of
