-Ex-Couimissiouer David A. ?Veils writes 1
an luieresi.ug leiierio lhe N? w York Nanon '
on the orjspecilve rale ot interest- in this j1
country lor th? nexi quarter century. Mr. ? I
Wells assumes that the rate of interest de
pends on four conditions-1. the productive?
ness of labor; 2, the supply o; capital; 3, the
degree of risk in loans; 4, the state of the cur?
rency. For the next generation, at least, the
fertile land of the United States cannot be
wholly occupied; and there can be no sensible
decline in the productiveness of labor, or in
the demand for capital. As for the lur.her
. Jit^ply of capital, it is evident that there can
be no accumulation of it in this country be?
yond thc immediate wants of our own people.
Europe is now lending money to 1*3 own
peoples, on advanced rates of interest,
and there is no reason to believe that
capital from that source will be fur?
nished to lower the proseul rate of inter?
est here during the next generation. The
limited success of the five per cent, loan
shows that capital now commauds a higher
rate, and speculative investment threatens to
keep the market active and unstable. As to
the risk of loans In this country, our reputa?
tion as borrowers is not the highest In the
world, nor is it likely to Impreve under the
present management. Mr. Wells quotes with
approval Mr. Amasa Walker's remark that
the wide fluctuations in the rate of interest,
which are due to the use of a currency made
up largely of credit, may be expected to In?
crease in violence and frequency hereafter, as
the "mixed currency system" is extended
through the commercial world. Mr. Wells con?
cludes that there is at present no prospect of a
general reduction of the rate of interest in
this country for many years to come. Seven
percjnt he puts as the lowest average, with
an exception in favor of national State loans,
with which compensating advantages are of?
fered to make up for the reduced rate of in?
Tiie Taxpayer*1 Convention.
We are glad to see that iu every county of
the State the peoplu are fully awake to tue
importance of being represented by their
best men in the Taxpayers1 Convention
which meets in Columbia on Tuesday next.
A very large proportion of the del?gales have
already been chosen, and in those localities
where no selections have yet been made, ac?
tion will lie taken during the present week.
Tho indications are that the Convention will
so embody and represent the property, intel_
ligence and conservatism of South Carolina
that its action will have a weight and wield
an influence, beyond, as well as within the
Stat?, which no mere political body could
hope to exert.
A Rolarle Scene.
Since the year 1?65, which inaugurates a
new r?gime utterly at variance with the cus?
toms, manners and habits of the South, and
of this Slate more especially, the people of
Charleston have been accustomed to behold
sirunge sights. The strungest and most
startling perhaps waa thu parade of armed
.negroes. To the mu3ic of resonant brass
bauds or to lhe martial bray of the bogle,
tite growl of the drum and the squeak of the
fife, have the dusky battalions marched with
bayonets glittering in the sun atop of Win?
chester rifles. Not only was this kind of pa?
geant exceedingly frequent, but it wa3 all
the more remarkable from the fact that
uoihing of a similar character ever took
place on the part of the white population.
If the statue of Brutus removed, by order
from the Romau processions, made Brutus
all the moro remembered, so the total abne?
gation of public arms-bearing and parade on
the pa.. of the whites made the negro mo?
nopoly of militia gh?ry all the more extra?
ordinary and suggestive. But a chance has
come at last, as gratifying as it is momen?
tous. On yesterday, for the first time since
the surrender of General Lee, white men of
Charleston paraded our streets in uniform,
in soldierly order, and armed with the rifles
of the State. The strains of instrumental
music inspired their gallant tread, but not
in bravado. Instead of bristling bayonets,
we noticed that chaplets of roses-emblems
of peace and good will-adorned the muz?
zles of lhe rifles. Tliefe armed bands mov?
ed in solid phalanx, not to hear incendiary
harangues promotive of strife, but to listen
rather to the geutle words of beauty, the
generous overflow of fraternal sentiment,
and to a spot consecrated to manly sport
and friendly skill. It is to the credit of
Governor Scott that he has so far cast off
the shackles of prejudice and' party us to
have done his pan towards rendering snell
a pageant us that of yesterday possible. It
nae given to the people of Charleston,
strangers from abroad, and'citizens ot dif?
ferent paris of our owu State, a proper ,
glimpse of the new era of harmony and
prosperity which is, we sincerely believe,
ubout to dawn upon this sorely tried, des?
perately caitlin ii iaied and noble Common
i ht United Stat? Mil l?ry Academy.
?Since the South has ceased to furnish her
.representative quota of gentlemen, with
''plantation manners," to thc military
academy, West Poiut has, by the confession
of honest journalism, become a by-word and
reprou.cn. A second-class cadet furnishes
the most recent testimony. This informant
declures thai lhe lirst-class men scout ai dis?
cipline, snub the professors, bully the jun?
iors, and fusler, in ev ?ry way, a spirit of <
rudiauism aud insubordination. The last
freak of these precious first-class scamps '
was, as. this second-class eailet alleges, lhe
barning of their barracks. Now, the. head
mau in nil these 1 -Ku-Klux outrages'' is no
less a persou than lhe son of General Gi ant, .
who, according to Slr. Sumner, is the ?
..Groud CyCiops of San Domingo Ku-Klux."
Thc Tritmuc Investigating. i
The New York Tribune, in announcing tts
intention to dispatch a corps ol' special cor?
respondents co the Southern States to "write
"up" nie Ku-Klux, remarks:
"We do not. choose to await the investiga
lions of any committee of Congress. The ?vi- !
dence taken by any such otlleiu.1 body will in- ?
eviiably be affected by lhe prejudices and the |
fears of the witnesses. Our corretpondeuts ;
(viii send us m<>re independent and intelligent i
settlements than ?ny one clothed in the liupos- ;
iug character ot a committee-man or envoy '
:ould possibly do. We expect lu the next few '
mou i hs lo let in such light upon this laugled 1
web of charges and denials, ihui ignorance of J
the true state ol alf tin will no longer be ex?
cusable lo Congress or r.iie country." <
