* TO 1HE EDITOR OP THE NEWS.
In some remarks made by us a few days since
wc assumed that the paper currency of the
United States was excessively redundant, and
that thc best test of that redundancy was tho
premium on gold. This test is invariably ap?
plied in England. Wheu tho Bank of Eog
landsuspended its specio payuonts in 1737 both
those who affirmed and those who denied
that tho paper currency was redundant and
depreciated admitted the accuracy of this test.
We also stated that until the pa por currency
was brought to a lovel of valuo with spocie
every attempt to secure specie payments would
bo futile, and, consequently, that thc idea of
sending bonds to Europo with the expectation
of negotiating them at par and bringing the
proceeds to tho United States in gold until
that level was restored, would prove fallacious,
and that, if even there was au ?nfl.ix of gold iu
consequence of a favorable balance of trade, it
would bo only temporary; the gold would flow
out again to be re-exported as a commodity,
eeekiog a better market, according to' that well
established hw of currency which precludes
a euperior and inferior circulating medium to
circulate together, in the same manner precise?
ly as a debased metallic currency would take
the place of one of standard weight and fine?
We also entered on an argument to sbow that
it would be more expedient, in order to bring
the paper portion of the currency within its
proper limits, to diminish tho floating debt
with whatever could be spared from the sur?
plus ol cold ia the treasury and what eau bo
saved from reduoing tho publio expenditure.
We argued that it is a less evil to pay ono hun?
dred and forty or one hundred and fifty millio'is
of interest on a funded debt, payable in 1881,
th rn to have in circulation an amount < f paper
currency greatly ru excess, reaching the enor?
mous sum of between turee and four hundred
millions of dollars. For a redundant pap ^r cur?
rency not only destroys the validity of con?
tracts and lessens the revenue of all those who
hve on fixed incomes, but diminishes the com?
forts and necessaries of lifo of the laboring
We know that there is a large mass of per?
sons who ore apprehensive that ir the curren?
cy is contracted in ever BO slight a dogreo, it
will BO depress prices ceuorally as to produco
more embarrassment and distress tuan any
probable advantage that wdl arise from re?
turning to specie pavmonts. Wo would fortify
our conclusion that a gradual return to thc
standard of gold will uotproduco any injurious
effects by thc evidenco of facts and thu weight
of authority. Mr. Welles, thc special commis?
sioner of tho levcnuo, made a report recoutly
to Congress m wuich wo liud tho ioilomng
''As bearing on the proposition or c nlrac

that there was duruig such timo, ?. e. irom

that the shrinkage of prices which actually did
occur was equivalent, through nu increase in
tho purchasing power of money iu usc,'?You
practioal increase and not to a diminution ol'
tho power of the currency to affect exahanges."
This increase was estimated by the commis?
sioner, in his l ist report during tho year 1867,
to at least $100,000.000. Tue'-mo lera to con?
traction" to which thu commissioner allude*
was $4 000.000 pur mouth, which is jus' about
the exwnt. of ?he contraction suggested by us,
to wit: $50 000,000 annually; for tt will be i\
oollcute? that tho application of a part of tno
surplus of cold received from the revnuu-i of
custo us, fifty milhou more, forms no p irt ol'

by ibo Secretary ot tho Treasury for tho double
purpoao of paying the gold interest on tho
puhlio debt and keeping down tho premium on
gold; but tho f ct that tho surplus oil a low

TUE MUNICIPAL ELECTION.
Mr. Pillsbury cannot bc hold Lo have, by
virtue of election, even a prana facie title to
tbc of?co of Mayor, because the law under
which bo was elected referred thc scrutiny of
that election to a special tribunal, an .1 ga^-e to
that body the authority to make a bin dinj. "o
cieion, after investigating tho claim of the
claimants and examining thc returns of the
managers with thc ballots.
Furthermore, to this tribunal Pillsbury has
submitted his claim for the office of Mayor,
and the Aldermen upon hie ticket have sub?
mitted their claim for the offices of Aldermen,
respectively, as well upon thc law as upon the
facts, claiming to havo received tho highest
number of legal votes; and thia tribunal, so
appointed by law, and to which the claimants
have resorted and voluntarily submitted their
claim, has declared, as its decision and finding,
that Gilbert Pillsbury and thc parties claiming
as Aldermen with him, did not receive the
highest number of legal vote-; and.the law
says "their decision shall be binding upon llic
Thc same tribunal have also declared that
no persons have been duly elected according
Thc decision and finding of this tribunal
stands uureversed, and consequently, until
another election, Ute incumbents must hold ooer.
They must hold over, not for th air own sako,
but for the public good of preserving the gov?
ernment of the city.
If tho Managers of Election had united in
making a return in favor of Pillsbury and his
Aldermen, and that return hail been disputed,
pending the scrutiny tho claimants might bo
said to have a prima facie title to the offices
claimed; but, after scrutiny had and a decision
against their claim, this presumption in their
favor is gone, because it has been rendered
legally err tain that said claimants, of all mon,
havo no titlo to tie officos in question.
If the incumbents-Mayor Clark and the
Acting Board of Aldermen-could be weak
enough to vacate their offices, they might
throw thc corporation into chaos or dissolu
tiou for want of officers; but they certainly, by
su7h action, would not and could not lawfully
seat Mr. Pillsbury and his ticket.
And if tho incumbents fcbould, through
weakness or from other motives, so vacate
their offices, Mr. Pillsbury and his ticket could
"Ot enter upon and assume to exercise thc
cffi:cs of Mayor and Aldermen of the City of
; Charleston, without being guilty of usurpation.
Any other set of men in tho City ofCuarloston
might seize upon said offices with equal right,
or show right. Mr. Pillsbury and his ticket
have not even ' c^lor of titlo, by election," to
sustain them, if t~oy should succeed now in
intruding themselves into tho officos. Their
entry, under legislativo action in Columbia,
would carry willi it proof of want of title in
them, by election, which would vitiate their
proceedings and acts.
So it is that Mayor Chirk and tl c Acting
Aldermen, by retaining thc offices of which
they aro incumbents, do not obstruct Mr.
Pillsbury and his ticket. IDE LAW stands
! tn his and their way, because tho fiuding of
tho law stands recorded against them.
But, again, aupposc Mayor Clark and thc
Acting Boord of Aldermou were out of tho way
altogether, and Mr. Pillsbury and tho other
claimants with him had been suffered, without
resistance, to usurp tho offices of Mayor and
Aldermen, could they sustain themselves ?
No tax bill, passed by them, or other act
whose validity depends on their hoing the
(awful officers of the corporation, would be
valid. If not ousted of their usurped places by
an indignant community, their power would be
utterly naught, for the want of that acquies?
cence in their authority which would be essen?
tial to its efficacy. Their government would
On the otbor band, upon what foundation, in
the face of Ur. Corbin's bill, does tho title of
Mayor Clark and the Acting Board of Aldermen
rest ? The answer is, tliey are the incumbents.
Kent, in his commentaries, lars down the
doctrine in these words : "lu the case of pub?
lic officers, who are such de fado, acting under
color ot office by an election or appointment
not strictly leg?, or without having qua'ifled
themselves by the requisito tests, or by
holding over after tho period prescribed tor

CHARLESTON TO CINCINNATI.
Great Through Line-Shortest Koutc
only seventy-four Mil rs tn bo Com
ploted- The Broken Link - spartan
borg, S. C., to Ashville, JV. C.
TO THE EDITOK OF THE NEWS.
Thc interest you seem to feel ia the improve
menl6 of the country, and especially in railroad
enterprises, induces me to request the publica?
tion t?f a few facts whicb may not bc generally
kno-- u. I allude to the extension of tbe Spar
tanoorg Road to Ashville, N. C., a distance of
seventy-four miles, which is all that remains
to completo tho great enterprise began in 1835,
called the '.Louisville, Cincinnati and Charles?
ton Railroad,r-all tho balance now being
completed or in course of construction. This
line passes directly through the centre of
South Carolina, and cannot be tapped at any
point BO as to divert the business in any oilier
direction. On thc contrary, this ?outo has the
advantage over any other, both in directness,
easy grades, and light curvatures. If you will
stretch a thread from Columbia to Cumberland
Gap, you will ho surprised to soe how near it
strikes Spartanburg Courthouse, S. C., Butt
Mouutain aud Ashville, N. C., Paint Rock and
Morristown, Tetinesee?, find Cumberland Gap,
on the line of Kentucky and Tennessee. At the
corner ot Mie State of Virginia, the three States
come together ou Cumberland Mountain, for
thc truth of my assortions, I refer you to the
icports of Major McNiel, who had twelvj brig?
ades of eugineors tor more than a year, who
examined tbo wholo mountain range fjom Vir?
ginia to Georgia. In his report to thu Knox?
ville Convention in 1838, he 6ays: '"Nature too,
has clearly pointed out Ibo true route by which
your communication vit h the ocean may bo
most easily cffectcd~by the valley of the
French Broad River. * * By this route
which is believed to be without a parallel in
tho topography of tho world." In this conven
tion nine States were represented, by three
hundred and eighty delegates, who. after
thorough examination, unanimously ai'opted
ibis route. Tho City of Louisville, Kentucky,
sent a delegation to Norfolk, Va., in October
last, to secure communication by rail to that
city-which delegation succj.ded in making
arrangements with tho various railroad com?
panies and with thc City of Norfolk, hy which
the connection is to be made. Tho City Coun?
cil of Louisville unanimously adopted their
recommendations and pledged means to cany
out tho work. This connection being a fixed
fact, and Cumberland Gap tho objective point,
let UR compare distances. From thiB gap to
Norfolk is five-hundred and two miles, and
<o charleston tour hundred and ihirty-five
miles; sixty-seven miles in favor ot Charleston.
From Cumberland GlTp to Morristown, on tho
East Tenuossc;- aud Virginia Railroad, is fifty?
one miles; Charleston is thirty-one miles near?
er than Richmond, and ninety-one miles nearer
by tito Fieuch Broad than by Knoxvil o and
tho B.uo Ridge Road. From norristown, by
the Faint Kock to Asuvillo, is eighty-seven
miles. Tho North Carolina Central Railroad,
from Beaufort via Salisbury and Morgantown,
will he completed to Ashville wilhiu the next
eighteen mouthe or two years.
Thc Wilmington and Rutherford Road, from
Wilmington via Ch?rlotte, Lincoluton. Shelby,
Ruthcriordton, Columbus mid Henderson to
Ashvillo, is now hoing constructed, and ample
means provided for its completion. Suppose
all th.so roads bo built .iud in operation, South
Carolina und Charleston will be lett out in the
cold unless wo move forward and till up tbia
fhort gap of only seventy-four miles. From
Ashville to Beaufort, N. C., is lour hundred
aud sixteen miles, to Charleston two hundred
and ninety-seven miles-being one hundred
and niuotecu miles m favor ot Charleston.
From Ashvil.e to Wilmington, by the Wilming?
ton and Ruthcifordton Road, is throo hundred
and thirty-three indes, giving Charles:on thc
advantage of thirty-six miles over Wilmington.
Reviewing the whole line from actual survey,
Charleston has sixty-seven miles advantage
over Norfolk, thirty-one over Richmond, ono
hundred aud nineteen over Beaufort, and
Jhirty-8ix over Wilmington. If wo fail to baili
this link, we lose all tho trade of tho Wost,
and a largo part of the trade we now get will
be drawn off when theso other lines are com?
pleted. But build this holt to Ashville and
Charleston, and tho State will draw a large
share of both through and way busiuess. Tho
agricultural and mineral resources of this vast
country cannot be over-estimatod. The provi?
sion States of tbe West have and must con?
tinue to furnish the cotton, sugar and rice
fields with horses and mules and provisions for
tbe laborers. Theso can be brought direct
whero they are wanting without going the cir?
cuitous route by New York or Baltimore, which
will give business to laborers allaloug the lino,
bring in capital, enterprieo, and devclopo tbe
resources of tho country, keoping money here
instead of sending it off to enrich other com?
panies and other towns and cities. Too much
importance cannot be attached to the mineral
resources of those vast mountain regions that
he re toforo have been land-locked and mountain
bound. Cumberland Mountain and much of
the country th's side abouuds in coal which is
said to bo of excellent quality and easily ob?
tained, as it is seen cropping out in large veins
in many places over a largo section of country,
enough to supply auy domand likely to be
made for centuries to come. L'on abo abounds
iu inexhaustible quantities in immediate prox?
imity to the coal and limestone regiou. Salt is
produced Iro^Ubo salt springs or wells in any
quautiiy thaflnay bo desired, at low rates-the
coal ui'der ymg the mountain on both sides of
tho valley whero tho salt is made.
There is another article of incalculable value
as a fertilizer, winch is now beim* extons:>\ ly
used for agricultural purposes-I allude to what
is known there as plistei or marl, winch is
found in inoxhausliblo hanks, or, I might
s.y. fiolds. This can bu (piarrieJ aud sold
on : Li J spot for $2 ft) io S3 pur ton ni its

finest quality, saul by some lo bo equal to tue
Italian marble, is found there. (Seo upccimcns

that coppor, lead uud other minerals also

West Vngiuia have been cz uusivoly worked
formero tuan a qiurtor of a century. Should
ai y one doubt tuo advantages of railroad com?
munication between d.ffjieut sections ot the
country, I would ruler lum lo tho <Jity of Balti?
more J s un example ol tho power of rai hoad
oommuuica'.ion. Tluteity, before tho Balti
moro und Ohio Riilroad was built, contained
less than ono hundred thous md inhabitants,
wi.li comparatively Ittlo commerce. Baltimore
is tc-day a proud city of four hundred thou?
sand mhabiiauls, and her commercial rela?
tions extending to almost every part ol' the

But they do not cover the whole ground; indeed, lt
