TUESDAY MORNING, JANUARY 28, 1868
The Xewi-A Retrospect.
Just three months ago to-day, the pres
ent proprietors assumed charge of Tm
DAILY NEWS. Perhaps no more diaoourag
ing period, in a business point of view,
could be singled out within the memory
the present generation in Charleston than
the ninety days that have intervened sino 3
then. The ead failure of the Sea Island
crop and the ruinous docline in the market
price of Upland cotton, the disorganization
of labor, the alarming prevalence of incen?
diarism and crime, the political proapeat
blank, and our social future lomethiii
worse-all these things hara combined to
produce in the season which, with us, ia
usually marked by the greatest bus in ?as
activity, a scarcity of money, a prostration
of credit, and a paralysis in every bran oh
of trade, the like of which nobody oan re
member to have seen, before, during, or
since the war. The moat widely circula .ed
publio journal of a community affords g m
erally a fair index of ita prosperity; iud
stagnation in business reacts at onoe f nd
se ver oly upon advertising, which ia the dfe
of Journalism. So, ia tho present case, the
terrible pressure which has been felt within
th? last few months, in greater or less de?
gree, by every olaaa of our people has borne
heavily indeed.upon newspapers.
But the proprietors of THE NBWS did not
at the outset underrate the difficulties at
lending th? prosecution of their enterprise.
They foresaw the untiring energy, the
constant and sustained effort, the rigid
Economy and cloae attention to detalla, und,
above all, the unswerving adherence to the
cash system, through which alone luooesa
waa to ba won; and these they have labored
earnestly, resolutely and unceasingly to
supply. They haye pivsiTfi tn tba an?llo-si
Vaaa-awake daily paper, at a prioa (consid?
ering tao depreciation of the curr?noy)
altogether without a parallel in the hi itory
of journalism at the South, and they have
spared no pains to make it not only th?
ohespest of our newspapers, but also In the
freshness, variety, and eompaot arrange
mont of ita matter, the but. Thoy have, be
aides, introduced In Charleston the system
of weekly delivery and collection, wh ich ia
in universal usa in the Northern oitien, and
by which hundreds of our people are ena?
bled to take Tn NSW?, who, under the old
yearly subscription plan, could not all ord to
take a paper at all.
Our efforts to aooommodate tho publio,
we are glad to aay, have not been without
reward. The edition of Tu NEWS, almost
from tba time of ita establishment, his been
considerably larger than that of any other
journal in the State; but aince tho recent
ohaogea and improvements in the p/.per its
circulation has been making strides in the
oity aa well aa in thia and adjoining States,
far surpassing our most sanguino anticipa?
tions. Advertisers are already pretty well
convinced of thia fact, and in ?pita of the
hard times find lt to their inter?s to give
ua a liberal shara of their favors. We oan
only express our thanks to the publio for
their substantial appreciation of our en?
deavors, and pledge ourselves to strive ia
the future to make THE NEWS si iii more
worthy of their generous support.
The Bank Cases.
A case of considerable interest was oom
menced yesterday before the Appe al Court,
It comes up from the Court of Equity, and
ia in substance aa follow? :
A promissory note for $906.6 8, drawn
July 28, i860, was discounted by ino Bank
of South Carolina. Not being paid on ma
turity, it was protested, and the Bank,
about June 1, 1861, recovered judgment
against the drawer of the not J for the
amount. The original holder of the note,
who died in September, 1860, left a will,
and constituted his wife executrix. In
June, 1868, the executrix paid tbs bank the
liabilities of her testator, and among others
the above-named note, opon whiih the tes?
tator was liable as endorser. The note was
thereupon delivered up to the executrix,
and the judgment obtained thereon, it is
stated in har answer, because the property of
the estate of her testator, and that the
Bank of South Carolina ceased to have any
interest therein. In Deoember, 1866, the
attorneys of the executrix demanded pay?
ment of the note.
The attorneys of the drawer of the note,
th? plaintiff in the present case, replied by
tendering, in satisfaction of the judgment,
bills of the Bank of South Caro ina to the
amount of the claim. This tender wa? re?
fused, and the case heard before Chanoellor
H. D. LESESNE.
In his bill the plaintiff staten : 1. That
JJ VUUUW MUM? -
the note was regularly transferred to the
hank, and that the bank became the owners
lind holders of tho said note, and as such ob?
tained judgment against plaintiff; at or
before which time the said bank had sus?
pended, and refused to redeem its bills and
noies in gold or silver, as by its charter it
was bound to do,, thereby violating ita char?
ter, and becoming irresponsible for its just
debts. 2. That he is holding as a creditor
of the said bank a large amount of its bills
and notes, issued under its charter, more
than is the amount claimed under the said
judgment. S. That he has offered ta set
off by way of payment of tho said judg?
ment, the like amount of the bills and notes
of the said bank. 4. That the bank had
refused his offer; insisting that he shall pay
and satisfy the judgment in gold or silver,
or the lawful currenoy of the United States.
6. That this bank is now insolvent; that it
does not even make profession of any ability
to redeem its circulation, and thatif allowed
to enforce ?B j idgment, it will, while in?
debted to him, coerce him into the payment
to it of the full amount of the said judg?
ment; while in its relations as debtor to
him SB creditor, it will pay back to him, if
any, a very inconsiderable portion of the
debt it now owes him. 6. That this pro?
ceeding is oppressive and unjust to the
plaintiff; that the debt due by the bank is
a fair set off against the debt due to it. 7.
That the Bank of South Carolina holds that i
it is not the party interested in the said
judgment; whereas plaintiff insists that the j
judgment was reoovered and is entered in
the records of court in the name of said
bank'; that upon the said record no assign?
ment or transfer of right or interest in the
said judgment is made or appears ; and
that plaintiff had never received from the
said bank notioe of any assignment by it of
the said judgment. 8. That the bank holds
that beoause plaintiff became possessed of
its notes and bills subsequent to the time
when this judgment was entered against
him, he is not entitled to set off the samo
against the said judgment. In answer the
plaintiff olaims, that while he cannot offer
these bills by way of set off or discount, he
is entitled to pay to the bank, in eatisfao- j
tion of the debt claimed by it, its own bills
and notes, issued by it, cte, etc., etc. j
The Chancellor, in his deoree, decided
that the assignment of the judgment was
equitable ; that a judgment could not be set
off by bills and notes of an insolvent bank
that as the plaintiff had come in possession
of these notes subsequent to the insolvency
of the bank, and the case was distinot from
the general one of debtors of a bank seeking
to pay their debts by bringing up its notes
after failure. The bill was therefore dis?
The grounds of appeal were : 1. Beoause
there was no legal assignment of the judg?
ment of the bank. 2. Because a debtor to
the Bank of South Carolina has the right to
satisfy the olaim of the bank for a debt
alleged to be due it, with its bills, which
have been put in circulation as money, and
of which he is the bona fide holder and
owner. 3. Because if the principle is re?
cognized in any oase, that a debtor to a bank
cannot, after its insolvency, discharge its I
-- ?jgj-- mtm irw ra own DTTOTj wnicn j
have been put in circulation as money, that
principle has never been extended to a oase
where, in the event of the insolvency of a
bask, its stockholders were held by its
oharter, bound to contribute, in addition to
th j original subscription to its capital, to
satisfy the olaim of its creditors. 4. Be?
oause, whether regard be had to the prin?
ciples of a Court of Equity, whioh always
endeavors to set off a demand on one side
against one on the other side, or to its rule
not to forte a oroas suit to aceomplish
relief, whioh it can give without circuity of |
aotion, or to support the law as it has de?
clared it, that the exercise by a bank of its
privilege to issue its bills as money, takes
from it the power to impair the obligation
it has assumed by any act of its own,
whether of insolvency or otherwise, the
complainant is entitled to the relief he has
