THE CONFEDERATE COTTON LOAN.
MoBsrs. TICKNOR & FIELDS, tho BoBton pub
lishore, have Bent us advunoe shoots of a
work about to bo issued from their presa, un
dor tho title: "Four Yours of Fighting ? by
C. C. COFFIN, known as a writor under tho
norn tie plume CARLETON.
In Chapter XXXII. the author gives us
tho secret history of the Confederate Cotton
Loan. The oircumBtanoes under which the
material for this disclosure was obtained re
mind ono very muoh of the fictitious origin of
The Castle of Otranto, and other such vera
cious narratives. Here it is:
'Tho author ontered Bichmond while the city
was in flamee, and in passing through the streots
lucked up a package, which contained the corroo
pondence botweon tbo parties, showing bow the
loan was negotiated; how tho Loudon Timpa was
brought into the service and pay of Joff. Davis;
what intoroat tbo Emperor of Franco took in tho
success of the loan; how the loan was put upon
the niarkot, and who received commissions and
As a general thing we placo but little oro
denoo in "secret correspondence, accidentally
picked up in the streets." But this may be
an exception to the rule. Indeed, we believe
the circumstances of the loan, as here stated,
are in accordance with fact,-however they
may have been obtained.
D'ERLANGER & Co., in Paris and Frank
fort, were the agents employed to bring this
loan into the market. Messrs. JOHN HENRY
SCHRODER & Co., and LAWRENCE, SON &
PEARCE wero the agents in London; Messrs.
FRA PER, TREN HOLM & Co., in Liverpool.
There were agencies also in Frankfort and
Amsterdam. The press in England ia said
to havo been "managed" by Messrs. DELEON,
MASON and SPENCE. On March 6,1863, Mr.
SPENCE, (who was Mr. BENJAMIN'S right
hand man in England), writes thus to D'ER
"You said something in the last, interviow of
?50,000 of the stock. If it had occurred to you to
put down to me that quantity at the gross price
of seventy-seven, I should bo disposed to consider
it looking to the advantage of all concerned of
having a common interest.
The loan was issued at 90, and this margin
of 13 per cent, was a "shave" for Mr. SFENCE'S
services as correspondent of the Times. Mr.
SPENCE was very sanguine of the success of
the loan, as well as of the Confederacy. On
the 20th he writes: "We shall very muoh ex
ceed a million here, I think, by noon to-mor
row. The political effeot will be enormous.
It is the recognition of the South by the in
Of course there is a great deal in this worK
we cannot Bubsuribe to, and not a little we
know to bo false. Tho old slander of Mis
sissippi repudiation is here again dished up,
as though it had never been reported; and
Mr. DAVIS is oonnected with it, although it
has again and again been proven that he was
an obscure young man, not even in publio
life at the time. The whole matter is clearly
set forth in one of Mr. DAVIS' conversations,
recently published iu Dr. CRAVEN'S "Prison
Life;" and we respectfully maintain that it
is not compatible with the character of a
gentleman or with the liberal profession of
respeotable authorship to reiterate charges
that have been refuted again and again. If
Mr. COFFIN is at all familiar with the sub
ject he cannot be ignorant of these refutations.
If he is not it would only go to prove that
he was content to repeat a stale calumny
without investigating the matter for him
By June 15,1863, Mr. D'ERLANGER^ com
mission had reached the snug little sum of
$750,000,-part of which, at least, he re
quired to be paid in gold.
Mr. MCRAE wanted ?200,000 on Govern
ment account for the purchase of some boatB,
and applied to D'ERLANGER, whose terms
will be seen from the following extraot from
"Your proposition amounts to this: That the
Government should pay 100 por cent, for the use
of ?200,000, for probably less than six months,
with no risk on the part of tho lenders, as tho
?650,000 of bonds deposited, and the lion on the
boats purchased with the aum lent, would pro
tect them against loss in any ovent. My proposi
tion was to pay 83J for ?200,000 for a poriod. of
probably ten or twelve months. This I considered
sufficiently favorable for the lenders,, as they
would have boen secured by the deposit of ?323,
333 of bonds, and a lien on the bonis."
Other parties are oharged with having had
a hand in this dirty work, but we prefer not
circulating the reporte, as we cannot feel Bare
of the truth of theso documents. There were
many porsons in the Confederaoy, and some
of them very well informod, who had little
confidence in Mr. DAVIS' foreign policy, or in
the intogrity and disinterestedness of our
foreign fioanoial agents; but they were not
heeded. What odds now, however? The
result would in all probability not have been
different, even if those agents had not boen

NEW YORK, Janunrv 21, I860.
MY DEAR Mn. PRESIDENT: I have boou in tho
city for two days, and now write under an impulse
which I cannot restrain, because I fool it to bo for
your own good aud that of tho country. I tako it
for granted that you aro resolved not to bo un
mindful of vour own fame, and that you will not
allow your frionda who heartily sustain your poli
cy to feel that thoy aro without your aid and ou
couragomont, whetbor you are a candidato for
Preeident or not, and if you aro not I shall bo
greatly surprised, with tho wonderful favor that
crowned your restoration policy. You should not
allow tho groat ofllcoB to go to indifforent mon, or
those cloarly in the interests of your foo?. I need
not ropoat to yon that I am now, as ovor, for
twonty yoars shown in my writings, and since
your great act of patriotism in 1860, especially your
open and avowed friond. Where I ?m to-day mv
two nows papers, both daily, show to tho world.
Honce in what I now say, I speak no idle words,
but mean all I say. The Collector's office at Now
York is a post that you should dispose of out
side of all the politicians; not that I moan to dofy
them, but to select your own man, who should be
freo only to help you, and Borve tho Government;
ono thoy could neither attack nor use. Buch a
man ?8 -, o? this city. Ho was oleotod to
Congress in-, as a Democrat, but-like you,
rofuBod to follow the party in treason. Ho sorved
a abort time with great distinction, and resigned
on account of ill health. Ho was a member of
the Committoe on Ways and Means, and won great
applause Ho is a vory able man, educated to
finance, intensely national, honest and indepen
dent, and could furnish millions of security. Ho
has an organizing mind; would mako you a party
or fight your battles single-handed. He is an An
drew Johnson Democrat, in short. I writo in the
knowlodgo that ho would accept, and that his ap
pointment would be received with joy by the whole
community. Yours truly,
JOHN W. FOBNEY.

3d. That until the Distr ct Judges aro commissioned,
tho Court of Qouoral Sessions rutalna Jurisdiction ol
COSCB of mledemeanor committed by whites on the per
son or property of colored persons. Ghlof Justico Dun
kin saya: "The Court of Goucral Sessions had always
cogntzanco of offences committed by whito persons
against the person or property of a person of color."
In the case of 8tate vs. Hill, 2d Speer. 1G0, wi ich was an
indictment against a whito pemou for assault and batte
ry on a freo person of kolor, it waa not only so ruled,
but recognized as woll settlod law for moro than half a
century. The Dlntict Courts of Decombor, 1805. not
having been pnt in operation, I suppose tho general ju
risdiction of Ihe Court of Sessions remain; and I un
derstand that such has bcou tho ruling of tho Circuit
Judges in reference to cases of bastardy and vagrancy
which have come before them.
The 30th section, Act 1865. provides "That, In every
case, civil and criminal, in which a person or color is a
party, or which affect? the p-ruon or property of a per
son of color, jeraonB of color shall bo competent wit
ness." It is a remedial Statuto and must bo construed
In reference to its object My opinion is, that persons
of color are competent to testify before Grand JurieB
and Magistrates in criminal cases touoblcg the person
or property of persons of color. "
And whereas, the security of tho liberty of the citizen
arising from bia right to bo tried by a jury of hlB peers,
can only be r talned, lu tbo present anomalous condi
tion or tho country, by tho civil officers of the State
executing the principle? contained in the opinion of the
justly distinguished Chief Juetlco. in good faith and with
an eari.est desiro to give security and protection to the
persons and property ot tho colored population.
And to the ei.d that this high privilege may bo re
tained by tho good people ol this State, I, JAME9 L.
ORR, Governor of the sold Stale, do proclaim and de
claro that it is the duty of ovory Civil Magistrate to give
careful consideration to every complaint mado to him
by a person of color against a white man for any felony
or misdemeanor alleged to havo been committed againBt
the person or property of a porson of oolor; aud if he,
upon such consideration, concludes that there are reason
able grounds for such complaint, said Magistrate shall
take the affidavit of such person of oolor, and lesuo his
warrant against the offender, requiring his arrest and
recognizance to appear at the noxt term or the Court of
General Btiuinua. Jost M im wonld do if the party
making Iho complaint were a white man; and be will
also recognize all witnesses by whom tbe complainant
may desire to prove the charge, us is now provided by
law, for securing the attendance of State witnesses. All
Sheriffs and Constables will promptly,-faithfully and
fearlessly execute all such warrants as may be placed in
And I call upon all good citizens to aid in the fair and
faithful execution of the laws of this Stato, as expound
ed by the Chief-Justice; and very soon the earnest wish
expressed by the Commanding General in Orders No.
19 (published herewith for tbe information of the peo
ple) "that it will not be long before it may be truly sold,
that no offence against the peaco, ai.d no Injury to the
person or property, of even the humblest inhabitant,
may be committed with impunity in the State of South
Carolina," will be happily realized.
Oivon under my hand and the great soal of tho State, at
the City of Columbia, tbe 80th day of June,
18G0, and in the ninetloth yoar of the Inde
pendence of tho United States of America.
