RESUMPTION OF SPECIE PA IMEX TS.
TO THE ED1TOU OF THE MlW?.
This su'ojeet is much discussed in Congress
.md ia the journals, bat not witli that agree?
ment in principles winch ia necessary to its
intelligent investigation. I have just perused
Mr. Morton's speech in tho benato, recently
made. Ile is favorable to resumption, but sets
out with tho assumption that our paper cur?
rency is not excessive. I would suppose that
the answer to this assumption would bc the
premium on gold, which is 32 per cent.; but a
few figures will show this error of Mr. Morton
on tue subject of redundancy ol' thc paper
1 ho amount of paper money issued, includ?
ing legal tender and national bink uolcs, in,
in round numbers, SG30 000 000. Dur popula?
tion is estimated at 33,000 000, which is a frac?
tion over seventeen dollars per head of po?
per currency for tho whole population. Tho
paper currency of the United states in 1800
was $207,U0'1.0?0. and the specie in cir ul.i?ior.
between S83 000.000 md $81 000,000. making iii
the aggregate about $30J 000.0J0. which, in
proportion to thc population at [hat time
31.000.OOJ-was a fractii n over $7 per head bli?
the bank note and $2 50 por head for the tpecic
part of th? circulation. The b '- note cur?
rency of Groat Biitaini8?30 0o0,i 00-S150 0L.0,
000-which is SI 81 per capita. The paper
currency of France is 120.000,000 fruncs
$24,000,000-about $7 per bead.
Let us adopt another mode of calculation.
Allowing for an increase of population, at tho
nut decennial period, at tho rato of 3? pt?r
cent, per annum, and that tho population ot
the United States will, at tho next census, 1S70.
reach 40,000,000. at this rate of mci ease thc cur?
rency ought to bc $400 OOO 000 or $10 per head, or
about $7 50 for thc pap rand 1250 for thc specie
portion. Pursuing thc same mode of calculai ion
at tl c census of 18S >, vb";: our numbers will
be 54,000.000, our whole currency, p.v er and
specio, would be S540.000.000, and*, in tho same
proportion as in 180'J, f <r specio and paper
about $400,000 000 tor the latter an t $100,000,
000 for tho former portion of it.
Mr. Mortoti is opposed to tho mode of com?
mencing the payment of the national debt, aa
suggested by tho Secretary of tho I'roa-ury.
Mx. Mcculloch proposes to commence with the
fimdrd d * ' Mr. Morton wishes to begin with
thc floating debt, in which we ^gree with him.
The H inting debt is tho greatest of tho two
evils. The funded debt is not payublo until
1881. Thc flouting debt disturbs contracts, and
by leading to depreciation und an unfavorable
balance ol' trade, carries our hoads to Europe
with our gold. Air. Morton is. however, not a
little inconsistent in this part of his speech.
He is opposed to a contraction of the currency,
I unless oy pioccmcal. bit by bit.
Now, "what is a roduciioa of thc floating
debt, iu other words, a cancellation of the legal
teuder notes, in the way ho proposes, but a
postponement to an almost indefinito period of
resumption? He is the advocate-of paying off
tho floating debt in preference to tho lund d
debt, because :t will hu thc means of improv?
ing the currency, and lead ug necessarily io
resumption, and yet bc proaosos to cancel one
hur<di-ed millions of Hint debt as an eflOfttual
mea is ol returning to specie pa\ments. Does
lie imagine tba, cancelling orie part out of
seven, when the excess is about tom- parts ant
of seven, will accomplish his object ? lie sup?
poses that retiring $100,000 COO of legal tender
notes will bring the remainder to a levol of
value with gold. Yam expectation !
Lu speaking ol a gradual reduction, is ho mt
aware of that law of currency which prevents
currency of a higher value circulating with ono
ot a lowor value? Would not gold bo still re?
garded aa merchandise and rc-exportoJ even if
brought in by abalance of trade, until thc excess
Of paper mon sy had boca reduced ? Thc coutsc
of oolicy is very plain m this ex remity. lt is to
reduce o :r floating debt as rapidly as possible,
consistent with safety and not too great a reduc?
tion of prices, autil we have Lrought it down to
somewhere in tho neighborhood of $350,000,000,
and then if our exports exceed our imports,
and the balance of trade ie in our favor, we
shall bc ab1.- to return to specie payments, but
not before. If tho attempt is made to resume
unless wc are in due preparation to do so, hy
reducing the pres nt p elnora of puper money,
there wilt be inevitably another suspension, its
wnB the case in this country in 183i>, after tho
suspension of 1837.
In fact, this sunjoct cannot bo mte'lig'nrly
discussed, except in connection with tue pub?
lic expondituru uud thc state of our foreign
trade, and to these aspects di tho subject we
will address ourselves tu a future communica?

As ELEPHANT ATTACKS A Loc IMOTIVE.- Thc

from the Bengalee of January's an intelligent
native newspaper published in Calcutta in Eng?
A correspondent writing (he Indo-Euro

that a verry serious accident, brought about in I
a m.inntr unknown, and perhaps unheard of
sinco the establishment ot railways, not only

to a train on thc evening of ibo 20th of De?
cember, at hulf-patt 8 o'o.ock. between Sahe'o
gunge and Mirzaporo, about two miks from
tue latter 6tatiou. At that lime the No. 5 down
goods'train was nppioaching a tuangoo tope,
in which seventy elephants were stationed.
The red lights glaring in the distance, and
the noise and sm ike ot the engine, would seem
to have caused an awful consternation -.imoiig
the poor brutes, all of whcni moro, or ?ess,
tried to break away from their faste lings.
One large male, however, thc Str?mtest and
Most courageous of the lot, became so infuria?
ted that ho broke his chiin aud r.ished forward
to intecept and encounter Hie supposed ene?

Imo when tho train was down upon him. He
encountered it with head aud tusk-; hut animal

and Air. Carr, wo believe, in behalf ol Air. ito -
d. au. The duel was fought with navy revolvers,
at ten paces. The difficulty which led to toe
encounter appears to Lave occurred Mardi
Gras night at a private party, and arose from a
supposed insult to u . ouug hdy. It appears
Ikey met tho day after, and a j ?stol uss drawn
in front of H.tggtrty's ou Canal-stroet, hut on

It was agreed to th c- alternately, and Mr.
Davin won the first shot and un?sed his aim.
Mr. Rondeau then ossayod to fire, but his pis
toi only snapped, bu*, at a second attempt tho
pistol was di chatted, taking eliuct between
thc third and fourth nb, producing a severo
and probably fatal wound. A surgeon was ia

LiV. O. Picayune, February 18,
Thc Fifteenth Amendment-Beginning
to Sec its Knee ts.
The constitutional amendment adopted by
the United States Senate is denounced by some
of thc prominent Radical journals, who see
that it is time to resist thc encroachments of
Congress upon the rights of the States. Tho
tendeucy towards centralization is beginning
to.be rebuked by Republican party organs.
They sc-o the danger that must result from
stripping thc States of all powsr, and confer?
ring the same upon Congress. Tho Providence
(R. I.) Journal says:
Should this amendment be confirmed by the
States, and go into effect, it cannot fad to
work a very important change in the govern?
ment and institutions of the country. The ar?
ticle annuls forever ell special qualifications
tor holding office in any of tuc States, and will
inevitably require very important altoraticus
in several of thc State constitutions, as well as
in the relations of all tho States to tlie General
Government, lt will provo by far the lougest
step that li is thus far neon taken toward thc
consolidation of our political power and the
virtual overthrow of State institut ionp.
A change lise this which is proposed by tho
Senate is fundamental und far-reaching. As
was earnestly contended by ecveral leading
members of that body, it ts essentially revolu?
tionary m its tendencies and results. Our po?
litical system will bc very greatly modified by
its operation, and with tho facility which will
thus b-e iutroduced of miking still further
changes, it is mpossiblo fully to estimate or
even to anticipate ttic ulterior consequences
that are likely to flow from it. Out of :i neces?
sity which the rebellion forced unon the States
of thc South, and which really pertained only
to them, the champions o. a particular theory
ot social rights have carried thr 'Ugh the Sen?
ate a change in tue fundamental law which
strikes down everything like local independ?
ence in State affairs, and abolishes all-power in
a Stato to pro.ect itself against any social or
political evils to which it uaw be especially ex
pu.-od. thc Constitu? ion of the United States,
ns Hms amended, will clearly no longer be the
constitution which was auoptcd by our fullers.
With iacli a provision, even as a possible anti
cipation, it could never have passed the con?
vention of 17S7; still less could it have been ac?
cepted hy t ho popular conventions of any of the
States. If it is now confirmed, it will be only
au overthrow ol State constitutions, under tho
spurious guise of a constitutional amendment
ni favor of freedom.
Thc Chicago Tribune also has a bold article
on thc siibjnct. It says:
Slate officers aro not, hue voters, constit?
uents of the national government. Their
qualifierions may bc saf ly left to tho people
Ot the ?tate. The constitutions of the several
States provide various qualifications tor their
officers, 1 he Governors of some Stales aro re?
quired to bc native bi?n citizens. Under
o ich State wo havo a ve.iely of offices lobe
filled hy persons having a knowledge of par?
ticular sciences; wo have judges and attoraey
gcucrals, we have prosecuting attorneys, State
gcoio.'iotc and surveyors, wo bava h. ? fur
the insano and for tn1 ere a m >nt ofolh-i '.onus
of disease. Why should not thc Stato of Illi?
nois require that persons elected or appointed
to these places shall ho able to read or write?
t bat her judges and attorneys shall betducat
cd in the ?aw? that her public physicians and
superintendents of ho-p?tala shall havo a medi?
cal education ? Yet tho .itnoiidtiieut pro?
posed hythe Senate prohibits the State from
oajabhsbiiig any such qualifications, and makes
eligibility to office coextensive with th -right
to vols. All citizons, of all colors and races,
whether they read or write, or speak the lan?
guage, or ho.d property, are mair eligible to
all offices in tho Slate. Can any pcrsou give
any good reason for this proposition?
Wo do not think sue.i au ameodmeut can bc
ratified at the present time. We do not believe
that it trill secure thc requisite number of
votes iu Illinois, Indiana or Ohio; wc do not
think Connecticut, or Rhode Island, or New
Hampshire will ratify it.and it may fail in New
York and Pennsylvania. 1 lie Pacific States
will undoubtedly reject it. The universal suf?
frage clause cannot carry itself and tho office

Grant censes to bo commander of the army, or
sooner, if he should resig i before that time,
tho command will devolve ninm Licnteuant
General W. T. Sherman, thc next iu rank, and
all ot General Grant's officers will formally
tender their resignations.
If General Sherman should not reappoint
them, General Rawlings will still remain a
Bngauior General, lt is believed that he will
be nominated to some good civil position;
General B.uleau will full huck on his commis?

of tho merits and demerits ot the question, and
ample time to calmly survey all lae cireutn

drew Johnson was also brought into play, and
a great indisposition manifested to give him a

several hours up to the time of adjournment
of thc morning session. His affable manner,
and thc strong influence of his sterling per?

that tho object of bis visit is to effect an exten?

Thc movement is a wise one, and your citi?

of the measure he is advocating and its influ?

Hon. J. L. Neaglc, Vomp.ruUer-Utneral, G'o
himhia S. C.:
DEAR ?SIR-I have thc honor to acknowledge
tho rccoipt of your co umunication, asking in?
formation in relation to this company's State
guaranteed ?lebt, and beg to reply thereto:
I hat in Juno last the Hon. C. IL Fu rm an
went to London, as the special agent ul' this
company, for tho purpose of exchanging wah
thc bondholders in England their direct hist
mortgage securities for thc p.ist due S'ato
guaranteed bonds held there, and interest tu
1st January, 1868.
Before our agent left wc had tho cordial ac?
ceptance ol all Ihe holders of thean securities
in this country, whom we could reach, of the
substitutes we offered. The amount so held
WHS over one-third of thc whole debt.
In England, also, a very largo majority of
tho holders promptly agreed io accept, aud
tho completion of the negotiation is only re
la riled by lochnical difficulties in tho case of
comparatively a very nm.ill number. Our late
letters Jroui Mr. Purumu uro t-uite encourag?
ing. and wo see no rea-oii to doubt thu. cer?
tainly in this year-probably in a much shorter
period-Wc will ho able to placo ia ymir hands
every bond bearing thc guarantee of thc State.
I havo Hu honor further M Mate that when
our aj;cut went abroad (indied before) the
funds io pay fe July coupons of the new bonds
were remitted to our agent in London, mid
Hut what is due for lbs January coupons has
beet, in lia id, rat Iv for payment, for some
time, only awaiting notice ot the coiicltiaicii
of tno arrangement to be remitted.
It is hardly necessary tor nie l-l edd, by way
Of explanation, thal the debt io which I am re?
ferring in this communication is what is
known as thc ivo million sterling debt of tho
company, guaranteed by the Mate.
1 beg" to s lid with tins a copy of our Inst
annual report, and to sav that I wal always
tal-.o great pleasure in furnishing want infor?

your inquiry. Vory respectfully,
