\TIIE POSITION OF CHARLESTON- THE
COL UMRIA AND A U<i USTA RA I LEO A />.
At no time in Hie history ol' ibis city ivas it
so necessary that all liol* sons shouM ?lo their
duty as at the present hour. With her liank
ing anil commercial capital either sunk or Btts
pendeil, she has, with immensely curtailed
means, to meei a more determined competition
fur the trade of the region that should be tribu
tary to her than has ever previously been the
case. "We clip the following from a Northern
exchange, which shows how some of the Mem
phis business is going:
Twenty-five heavily laden cars of through freight
wore brough cost on tho Tcnncssoo Railroad a few
. days since. Twenty of thom wore loadod with
j cotton from Memphis, and came through without
? broaking bulk. They were sent on immediately
I ovco tho Southside road to Norfolk. The Lynch*
burg News learns that tho through business hy
this line is incroasing with great rapidity, and tho
prospect is that it will tax the various roads to
their utmost capacity tho coming winter.
Charleston is sonic two hundred miles nearer
to Memphis than is the port of Norfolk, and
should, it would seem, enjoy a better chance
for the patronage.
But there is a project much nearer home,
which is being carried out with considerable
vigor, which threatens to carry off business
almost at our door. The East Tennessee and
Virginia Railroad attracts the trade of North
Georgia, North Alabama, Upper Mississippi,
and a pnrl of the business which concentrates
at Memphis, most of this region being at least
four hundred miles off; hut the Augusta and
Columbia Railroad, which is now in course Of
rapid construction, is built with the view of
entirely circumventing this place. The pro
jectors of the Columbia roud hope to take most
of tho travel from middle mid lower Georgia,
middle and lower Alabama, Southern Missis
sippi, and such of that from Louisiana and
Texas as may come DM Mobile and Mont
gomery. In addition to the travel, they also
expect to have, a full share of the freighting
business. To understand this, it may be stated
that the Virginia railroads arc making great
efforts to concentrate at Norfolk a freighting
business from all sections of the South, and are
offering inducements to draw business ria the
North Carolina Central Railroad, which comes
in at Charlotte. At this point the Charlotte
and South Carolina Railroad connects with it,
and this connection has been working with
much effort to draw trade as far down as Co
lumbia, in this State. - In addition to this
through line, some of the leading spirits of the
Columbia and Augusta road propose a connec
tion from Columbia to Suniter (S. C), where it
will unite with the Wilmington and Manchester
road, and thus secure a new outlet ut Wilming
ton (N. C.) All these schemes look to an en
tire isolation of Charleston, and their whole
. _ ...- mfmm.mnnme ?..> io Ullllg llCr dOWll t*0 ?I
dependence on the narrow strip of country near
the seaboard. The city of Columbia bas, not
withstanding its prostrate condition, subscribed
$30,000 in Charlotte and South Carolina Rail
road bonds towards the Augusta road, and its
friends are now working with all the force they
can exert to secure a subscription of 3100,000
from the city of Augusta; but there are some
obstacles to be overcome before this part of
the enterprise can be made sure. But this
road will certainly bo built, and it is necessary
for all having an interest in the prosperity of
this city to prepare for the coming competition.
THE CHARLESTON MERCURY.
We arc authorized to announce that the pub
lication of the abovo well-known journal will
he resumed on Monday next. The Mercury was
for many years the leading political paper, not
only of this State, but of the whole South, and
under a succession of able editors achieved a
reputation as wide as the Union, and as lasting
as the history of the great political contest that
culminated in the late civil war. It was origi
nally published about forty years ago by a Mr.
MOKFORD, but first carno into notico during the
Nullification contest, under the editorial man
agement of the late lion. HKSRY L. PINCKNRV.
Among the names that have since added lustre
lo its renown arc thoso of JOHN A. STEWART,
, JOHN MILTON CLAPP and Viv. It. TABER. The
i present proprietor, Col. R. BARNWELL RHETT,
?Jr., conducted the Mercury for some years before
the war, during the whole of that eventful
struggle, and wc doubt not that, by his expe
rience and ability, it will be enabled to retain the
prestige of the past, and secure success for the
A MEASURE OF JUSTICE.-It will be seen by
. our Washington news to-day that the villain
named DUNHAM, alias SANFORD CONOVER, has
1 'been presented by the Grand Jury at Washing
ton for perjury and falso swearing in the evi
dence given by bim before tho Houso Judiciary
Committee and on the assassination trials. The
evidenco of this perjured rwrctch went far to
attach criminal blame to some of the innocent
victims of the military court that sat in the case
of tho assassination of the lato Mr. LINCOLN.
He, also, was chiefly relied on in order to prove
the atrocious calumny charging Mr. DAVIS with
complicity in the samo crime. It is to be
hoped, now that justico has been aroused in
this villain's case, that no alono will bo left
unturned in the effort to bring him and bis
abettors, in high places or in low places, to a
swift, prompt and deserved punishment.
TUE STA TE R. 1NKR UP T LA W. I
It was the hope of mnny persons apprised ol'
the embarrassed condition ol' the country, par
ticularly in the Sont hern States, that Congress, nt
; its last session, would have passed a bankrupt law
(hut would have offered a solution to the pecunin
, ry complications which letter the operations of
| so many of our enterprising men. The mensure
! WHS presented and pressed almost to a final
I passage, bul ? lio labors of the obstruction
I committee i<> embarrass Ibc proceedings of
j that body were only too successful, and the
measure ultimately fulled, (tis probable thal
ii will lie taken up again, but it H probable
also thai it will meei i lie like obstruction to it?
passage, The political issues will no1 l?c tbc
less exciting. Tbc great, and perhaps the
final, conflict between Radicalism and the Oov
ernment will be joined. To that will be ad
dressed the intellect and energies ol' both, and
it is not to be expected that, in the crisis ol'
thai exciting controversy, there will be the I
| leisure or inclination to the perfection of a I
measure of snell merely business interests.
Nor in fact would the action of Congress, in
ils present revolutionary condition, be apt to be
final or efficient. The Southern Stales must ul
timately be restored to the Union,-in which
event, the enactments ol' this body will be apt \
to be abrogated, or those States must be per
manently excluded,-in which event that Radi
cal party, to administer the despotic powers
?they will have assumed, will lind it necessary
? lo mould it? Congress to a form more suited to
? the executive functions they will require it to
? perform ; and in cither event, therefore, its
action, in its present transition and anomalous
I state, will be apt to be disregarded. Its nels,
i therefore, may be considered little more than
; provisional, and time must elapse and great
changes must occur before its policy, declared
j upon this and kindred subjects, can be regarded
j as the permanent policy of the country.
In the meantime, it devolves upon the States
lo do what may be within their power to niiti- j
gate the evil we have mentioned. In the wny i
t of efforts to relieve the embarrassments ol'!
| (heir people, however, there are (wo important ;
j difficulties. The first is in the fact that the
I States themselves are hardly now existing po
litical authorities. They arc not admitted to
possess the functions of self-government ; they
arc not admitted to legitimate relations to the
General Government ; it is not certain that, in
the relations ultimately to occur, there are any
of their determinations that will be ndmitted to
j the force of law, and rights and obligations in
l curred under legislation ultimately to be set
aside, may still further increase the very com
plications that legislation maybe intended lo
The oilier difficulty is in the fact that, how
ever fully.it may be conceded to the actions of
our States that they shall have the force of law
over our own authorities, it is not to be sup
posed thal the General Government will con
cede to our resolutions the force of law over
the authorities of the United States within our
limits. An act of our own Assembly, there
fore, which, upon certain conditions, should be
held by our State Judges to relieve the debtor
from his obligations, would not be so respected
by the Judges of the General Government.
Wliilc he might be discharged of pecuniary ob
ligations to his own fellow-citizens, who could
only pursue bim through (he State Courts, he
would still be responsible to his foreign credit
ors, who could pursue him in the Courts of the
United Stales, and the evil, therefore, could
only bo partially abated.
It is still important, however, that somrthin*
siiuiiui oo uone. We cannot be perfectly cer
tain that it will he doncjrhen it is done, and that
our action, therefore, will be as efficient as we
could wish it; but it is tolerably certain
thal, within certain limits, such a measure as
we have mentioned will be permitted to have
effect. It is not to be supposed that, in the re
vulsions still impending, these Slates will be
entirely deprived of their character of organ
ized political communities.* It is not to be sup
posed the Federal authorities will do more, in
opposition to sucli enactmen(9, (han enforce
the claims of foreign creditors, which will be
worn oat in time, and which now effoct but
a limited por; ?on of our people. The mass of
our obligations-certainly, in rural districts
are to each other. Our debts, generally, aro
due to our fellow-citizens ; they are, at present,
subject to what arc yet conceived to be the
powers of the several States, and we ave im
pressed with (he belief that good may result
from judicious notion upon this subject.
We would object to the feature of voluntary
bankruptcy, embodied in the bill of. 1841, and
which reappeared in that before Congress
in (he last session. There is, in our concep
tion, no merit in a measure which will allow
men to ?nnhc bankrupts of themselves; those
only will be apt. (o do so who have nothing lo
offer (o their creditors; those who are not par
ticularly conscientious will bo apt to prepare
themselves for tho operation by some skillful
disposition of their visible effects, and the ten
dencies of such a feature, therefore, will not
be to improve cither the moral or material con
dition of the country.
Of (he provision, however, which will allow
the creditor to petition for a decree of bank
ruptcy ngainut his debtor, and, taking what
ho lins to offer, grant him a discharge, much
good may result. The creditors of every fair
trader and business nmn would prefer (heir
immediate dividends of his estate, if fairly dis
tributed, to the uncertainty of his ultimate
success-the debtor, untrammelled of his obli
gations, could venture with moro experience and
better prospects. The State would thus receive
the ftdl impulse of tho enterpri?e and talents
of her citizenp, too many of whom arc tram;
mclled by debts they can never hope to re
move. It would, unquestionably, be of advan
tage to rub out and begin afresh. The creditor
would be the bettor of that portion of his
debtor's effects to which ho would fairly be en
titled. The debtor would bo tho better, even
at the expense of all availablo property he Wy
possess, of having his enterprise unfettered. Tin
energy and efforts necessary to resolve pecu
niary complications, could at once be turned to
the work of reconstructing buoinoee ontor
prises; the available fuuds would at once come
to the hands of those ultimately to use them,
and progress would now commence which, oc
curring only at the regular solution of all our
pecuniary embarrassments, must necessarily be
much retarded. The palliative ol' stay laws
and postponement of the c?iurt.?, wc think un
wise. The common ?rani is of a squariug ol'
account": and the natural indisposition of IUCH
to meet issue?*, even when tlu-y may bo inevita
ble, is no sufficient reason for the adoption of a
policy no really prejudicial ?o (heir interest?.
\ Slate bankrupt law, therefore, we ure as
stired, ?\o'-l-.l be generally bcueUcial It would
not protect the debtor beyond UM* lin.its of ?lie
State, or within the State from the process <i'
tin* i'<*r'.*r.?l Courts, at the suit of foreign cred
itors: but it would protect Lim from Hie claims
of hi. own fellow-eilj?"ens. !t would protect
him from the claims of foreign creditors who
may come lu and share in the assignment. This
the most of them would tir?. They, also, would
prefer even the Email portion of their demands
that may be immediately available; and practi
cally, perhaps, the State bankrupt la?v may be
scarcely less efficient than one that may bo
passed by the General Government. To that
.ubjeel attention ?8 addressed, and it is to be
hoped it will be maturely considered by mem
bers of the Legislature who may lie called to act
upon it. and that the measure, when developed,
n.ny be such as will meet tlie wants of the ?.;.*
