TH? Sterling Debt Bill.
The Bill to create a Sterling Funded Debt,
now before the General Assembly, is, in our
opinion, ODS of the' most important meas?
ures ever brought under tue consideration of J
the law-makers of the State. It provides
for- the borrowing of one million two hun?
dred thousand pouids sterling, "to be used
"exclusively-in exchange for, or inpayment
"of, the existing public debt of the State."
There are other provisions looking to a care?
ful and honest application of the proceeds of
the Sterling Funded Debt bonds; but the
stipulation which strikes us most forcibly is
contained in Section 8, which reads as fol?
SECTION 8. The honor and credit of this State
is also hereby pledged to the holders of the
debt authorized by this act, that this State will
not hereaiter. until said debt ls'iully paid and
discharged, create any new debt or obligation,
or by the loan of Its credit, by guarantee, en?
dorsement, or otherwise, except for the pur?
poses or meeting its existing obligations, Or
in and for the ordinary and current business
of the State, without first ?'.bmitliug the ques?
tion as to the creation of any such new debt,
guarantee, endorsement or loan of its credit,
to the people of this State, at a general State
election, and, unless two-thirds o? the quail
- fled voters of the State, voting on this ques?
tion, shall be in ?avor of a further debt, guar?
antee, endorsement or loan of its credit, none
such shall be created or made.
It is well known .that the State of South
Carolina is fully able, with sound financial
management, to meet the interest on the
public debt, and, imtime, to pay oil' the
principal. Yet the State credit i3 bad, and
the bonds of South Caroliua have fallen to a
price at which they give a return of ten per
cent a year, in gold, upon the money act?
ually invested. The amount of our debt, of
which we have knowledge, is not excessive;
the power of the people to meet their en?
gagements is not in question. Alf this is
frankly conceded by both brokers and per?
manent investors. Why, then, is the State
credit at so low an 'ebb? The answer is,
that it is feared that the present Radical
administration will so increase the debt, by
extravagance and by lending the State
credit to bankrupt corporations, that South
Carolina might, before many years, become
incapable of meeting ber engagements,
however desirous the people were of
keeping unsullied their financial reputation.
Thi9 is the whole trouble. What we ne*ed,
to establish the State credit upon a firm
basis, is a binding and irrevocable agree?
ment that the public debt shall not, in any
way; be added to, or increased.
We admit that the Sterling Funding Bill
is not without a flaw. A large confidence,
for instance, is-reposed in the Financial
Agent who shall reside in London. But it
ia indispensable to?the successful uegotiatlon
of the loau that this Agent should be above
suspicion, and this iodines' ua to.believe
that the hew bouds will, as promised", be
placed ic the bauds of a Banking firm whom
this people, and* the general public, will
cheerfully trust. And we are free to say
that if the Bill were, in other respects, far
more open to cavil than it is, we ehould
support the Bill, uud urge Us passage, for the
one reason that it closes the door upon all
swindling loans and endorsements, and
makes it impossible, without the formality
of a two-thirds popular vote, to add. to the '
liabilities of the State.
The eighth Section, being recited in the
story of '-he Bonds, creates a contract with
their holders which the courts ot the United
States would unhesitatingly -sustain. It
prohibits any .new debt, any loan of the
State credit, until the existing debt is fully
We believe that the General Assembly
Will do the State good service by passing,
with promptness; the Sterling Funding BilU
They should break up that Trojan Horse,
the Greenville and Blue Ridge Consolidation
Bill, and vote squarely- for the Sterling Bil),
which is, in other terms, a measure to pro?
hibit more debt and higher taxation. * *
The Consolidation Juggle?
The last state of the Greenville swindling
Bill is worse than its first. This will be
seen by a brief statement of the relations of
the State to the Blue Ridge and the Green?
ville and Columbia Railroads, and of the
changes iu those relations sought to be ef?
fected by the Consolidation Bill.
L The State of South Carolina has en?
dorsed bonds of the Greenville and Colum?
bia Railroad Company amounting to $1,426,
545 80. To 3ecure the State against loss,
the whole of the property of the company is
mortgaged to the State. Taking into con?
sideration the cost of the Greenville road,
and its present earnings, it is unquestiona?
ble that the State is amply secured by its
mortgage upon the property and franchises
of the company.
2. The State of South Carolina has guar?
anteed the bonds of the Blue Ridge Railroad
Company to the amount'of S4,000,O00, and
holds, as security, a first mortgage upon the
whole estate, property and funds of the coui
.pany, now possessed or hereafter to be ac?
quired. This was the best security that an
incomplete railroad 'could give. There wa3
the further condition that three million of
the Blue Ridge Bonds should not be disposed
of for less than ' three millions in currency."
This is, in a few words, the present condi?
tion of affairs. The State having guaranteed
$1,500,000 and $4,000,000, respectively, to
the Greenville aud Blue Ridge roads, holds a
first mortgage upon all the property of the
companies to the extent of the respective
The Consolidation bill proposes to unite
the two companies upon condition that the
State (1) ratifies its endorsement of the Blue
Ridge bonds, (2,) repeals the section of the
act of 18G8, which requires the ?3,000,000 of
bond3 to behold at par, and (3) postpones
its first lien so that the State claim shall
come in subsequent to all the mortgages
and encumbrances now existiug. The effect
of this arrangement would be":
I. Upon the Greenville road the State
would give up a complete security, in the
shape of a mortgage, and take a subsequent
mortgage of no real value.
I 2. Upon the Blue -Ridge road the State
would give up'all the security lt has, and get
nothing in return.
As soon as the Consolidation Bill passed,
the.Greenville Ring, who are the Consolida?
tors, under another name, would have at
their command $4,000,000 of guaranteed
bonus, which they might sell at any time
and at any price. With the proceeds of
these bonds they could get the Greenville
Ring out of their financial troubles, and put
the present Greenville road in order. In
other words, the 84,000,000 would be laid
out for the benefit of the Greenville Road
and the Greenville liing, and not in com.'
pleting the Blue Bvlge Road. This is too
clear to need any demonstration. The Ring
failed to get $2,000,000 on their own ac?
count. They now turn round and ask for
the $4,000,000 which belong to the Blue
We believe that Governor Scott i3 sincere?
ly anxious to complete the Blue Ridge road,
and we warn him that the road will never be
built if all its means-these four million
dollars-go into the possession, as threaten .
ed, of the unscrupulous Greenville Ring.
Governor Scott can pocket the Bill, if il
should pass both Houses. The people ex?
pect him to do his duty. ?
The Forty-Second Congress.
The Forty-second Congress meets to-day.
The list of members to be used in the organ?
izion of the House of Representatives is
made up from the returns of ti>e elections
already held, there being fourteen members
yet to be elected, from four States, New
Hampshire, Connecticut, California and
Texas. Of the elections which have taken
place, there is a dispute as to the person
chosen in the Third District of Arkansas,
and the Governor of that State refuses to
grant a certificate. Excepting this District,
there are ninety-six Democrats and one hun?
dred and thirty-two Republicans to be sworn
iu ou March 4th. From the four "Stales in
which elections are yet to be held there* are
four Democrats and ten Republicans iu the
Forty-first Congress. In the Arkansas Dis?
trict, -where a certificate has not been grant?
ed, a Democrat'received the highest number
of rotes, and it is, therefore, calculated that
the Forty-second Congress will contain one
hundred .and one Democrats and one hun?
dred aud forty-two Republicans, excluding
any probable gains ou either side in the
spring elections. Under these circumstan?
ces, the ruliug majority in the House will not
exceed two-thirds of that body.
TUE New York Bulletin, of Wednesday,
speaks as follows of the proposed Sterling
Fuuding loan: "Should the State of South
'.Carolina succeed iu making the sterling
'.loan of ?1,250,000 which it i3.now roport
'.ed 06 attempting to negotiate in London,
"it is claimed that the new bonds will make
"a large advance in this market. The ?-b
wj??c of the loan, it is- said; is to retire
..about $800,000 floating debt and to refund
"the new bonds."

TO THE EI>1T?R OF THE SEWS.
vWe have observed, within a recent period,
many references in your valuable paper to
certain proposals to the State Legislature,
from, parties whose names are not giveu, and
whose relations to the Greenville and Colum?
bia Railroad cannot be inferred. These propo?
sals appear to vary to suit the necessities ol
the hour. But they idl involve matters of the
greatest importance to the stockholders of this
road; and ic would seem to ?3 not only-onght
to be warranted by special authority from the
stockholders, but iu tact Inexcusable usurpa?
tions of power without such warrant.
Now, Mr. Editor, we . have nowhere
seen that thc stockholders of the Greenville
and Columbia Railroad have at any tim", or in
any manner, delegated to any mau or party of
men to approach Ibu Legislature for pecuniary
or other aid; aud you would really confer a favor
?pon us, if you have it in your power, to give
us the information thus sought, and let us 1
know who the parties are t'nat.are thus usurp?
ing a power only rightfully to 6e exercised by
or through the stockholders.
It would be idle, in this communication, to
discuss the expediency oz' such undertakings
as th03e wc complain of. But It ls not out of
place to observe that nothing can be more ab?
surd than to increase the already too heavy
debt of the Greenville and Columbia Railroad,
as a means of improving the Interest of the
'Ring" or the individual stockholders. Intel?
ligence, energy, and the strictest economy
may, in a few years, retrieve this property;
but thOBe resorts, which now seem so popular,
must-bopelessly crush lt.
