Oar \atiofiul Currency.
We all remember "Old Bullion"
and his "mint drops." The Rich?
mond Dispatch, in referring to the
National bank system, says that had
he lived to see the present day, he
Vould have roared so loudly ihat the
gold mines of California would have
trembled with the sound thereof.
That ingenious old man redeemed
his promises of "gold flowing up
the Mississippi," and "gold shining
through the interstices^ of every
farmer's pu rap. " and a golden deluge
in general, with a batch of s h in plas?
ters inumerable as to quantity,
.worthless as to quality, and irre?
deemable in any currency which re?
presented as much as five cents in
the dollar. He assisted largely in
breaking down an excellent currency
because he wanted a better; ana one
reason that he gave for it was, that
the notes in which it partly consisted
were mere "rags and lampblack."
Biddle had unfortunately said that
he could, at any time, crush any of
the State banks, if they went amiss,
and " Old Bullion" harped everlast?
ingly, uppn that text. The bank, he
said, proved to? much. If it had so
much power as was implied in this
statement ?of . Biddle'?, . it was too
powerful for a republican Govern?
ment. He and Old Hickory broke
down the bank, and removed the
deposits for " safe-keeping " . into a
number of State banks, in which
they were kept so safely that the Go?
vernment never heard of them any
more. They were determined that
an institution wielding such po wei
i should be put down at all hazards,
1 and put down it was.
1 We have now more than one thou
? sand six hundred National banks,
? and they fnrnish a circulation oj
M $237,000,000. Not a State bank
Wt in the South, at least-can rear it?
ff head; and we believe there are non?
k operating in the North. The Na
K tional banks control the whole monej
A supply of the whole United States
BR There is no other circulating mediun
than their notes. Their power is in
finitely greater than the power o
Biddle's bank ever was. What, w<
Ml repeat, would "Old Bullion" sayi
HL if he were alive, and in the ful
^^^^^?^ ptain nMwt 11 r health and rcasoninj
faculties ? What would all tho.?*
declaimers say who used to denoune
Old Hickory for removing the de
posits, and charge him with attempt
ing to unite the power of the pura
and the power of the sword in th
same hand ? After which union o
purse and sword, it was averred tba
there could be no longer any sud
thing as freedom.
Such late events seem to have de
cided pretty satisfactorily again a
what were formerly known as Stat
rights, we presume there will alway
be, in future, some great Nations
institution-a Government bank, pei
haps-to afford a currency for th
people. It will be far more powerf?
than either of the old United State
banks was, and will resemble, in a
respects, the bank of England. ]
will, no doubt, answer the purpose c
affording a sound currency niue
better than any bank has yet done
that is, if it be conducted honesty
since its issue will be for the who!

Bfe^ limited portion of it. But it will t

Goon ADVICE TO THE COLORE
PEOPLE.-General Palmer recent]
addressed 4,000 colored persons i
louisville. He said that, in tl
nature of things, fbr years to com?
the colored people of the counti
must be laborers, but their inter?s
and the interests of white labor wi
be identical. He expra-^ecl his grat
fication at the genera1 kindness <
the people of Kentueky for their*la1
/ slaves, which he said was true, no
Withstanding some cases of brutalil
and outrage, the work of abandone
-persons in different parts of the St?fc
He urged upon his hearers industi
and thrift in the cultivation of tl
Jand, and good feeling towards al
as a true solution of aJJ questioi
between the races.
The speech of the General wi
enthusiastically received, and th
utmost- good order and kind feelin
prevailed during the delivery.
We leam from our exchanges that
Judge Hughes, bne of the counsel for
Captain Sommes, has made applica?
tion to the Secretary of the Navy to
have the day fixed for the trial of the
accused. The Secretary of the Nav
declined making an order of tue
character requested, on the ground
that it is at the present time imprac?
ticable to make the detail of officers
to constitute the Court, there not
being a sufficient number of the
I proper grade now employed. The
counsel engaged for Semines are
Messrs. Hughes, Denver and Peck,
of Washington, and Pendleton Col?
ston, Esq., of Boston. Seiumes has
not yet been removed tn the Old
Capitol, but is confined in the navy
yard, in a room adjoining the chapel.
The room is in thc second story of
the building, and is very comfortably
furnished with bed, sofa and table,
and it is also carpeted. The marines
at the yard are charged with his
custody. A sentry is consto utly on
duty at the door of the room, while
outside the building, .under the win?
dows of the room, another sentry is
stationed. No one is allowed to speak
or hold intercourse with him, except
one gentleman, who holds a pass from
the Navy Department, understood to
be his counsel. He spends most of
his tinie in reading, having brought
with him some of his favorite books.
His meals are brought from a restau?
rant near by and paid for by the
Government. Under tl? circum?
stances, Ivo is quite cheerful, but
seems t ? be anxious that tho trial
shrill'take place speedily.
JOHN BELL. -According to the Lou?
isville Journal, John Bell's position
during the late war has been misun?
derstood and misrepresented, and lie
is about to write a letter to the Presi?
dent of the United States, which will
attract great attention.
One Northern Matn'a Experience in
It is gratifyiug for us oeeasionally
now to find one man from the North
who reports his experience among us
as favorable since the termination of
the war. Mr. Carl Shurz, doubtless,
would recommend Mr. True as a fit
candida .'or a trial by a Militar^
Commit JU, but there are many
Southerners who would consider Iii tn j
a truthful arni honest man. The
Rochester (N. Y.) De/nocrat has the |
We were gratified last Saturday at
receiving a call from our correspon?
dent at Madison, Ga., Mr. B. F. True,
who left that place December 2. He
went from Lima, N. Y., in advance
of a company that had been organized
in that place for emigration to Geor?
gia. Mr. True has secured by lease,
with the privilege of purchasing,
some twenty-two hundred acres of
land near Madison, upon which the
I company are to commence operations
; in the spring. They will take out
improved agricultural implements,
with skilled farm laborers, to show
the freedrr m how to plow deep and
till th?-fin thoroughly, and to take
charge 01 gangs. Cotton planting
begins in April, and the latest pick?
ing takes place in December, when !
ginning and baling for market begin.
Mr. True brings a very favorable j
report as to the temper of the people
where he had been sojourning. There
seems to be considerable genuine
loyalty, with a general desire for j
peace, and the consequent return of j
prosperity. They regard emigration j
from the North with great favor, and
give practical men, who come with !
the intention of remaining, a warm !
welcome. The negroes have no con
fidence in the Southern whites, and
work for them with the greatest re- ?
luctance, but gladly engage witli
Yankees. They are not worth much
j until they have looked about, after |
j recovering their freedom. They like
: to loaf about for a while, and seo a '
'? little of the world, when, as a general ;
? thing, they return and are contented !
I to work. Many remain in the towns, ?
hanging idly about, and become a j
prey to starvation and disease, which
is sweeping them off by hundreds.
Tho freedmen in Georgia are, how- i
ever, better off than in most other ;
Mr. True expects to return to ;
Georgia this week, prepared to com- ;

derstand, of finding out all who are
not legitimately employed, and send?

Advices from Japan to November
11th, state that the Commission had
gone to Osaka, to ascertain if the
Tycoon intended to withdraw from
Yeddo, and reside near- Keato, the
dwelling-place of the Mikado. If so,
they would then be able to discuss
the question of indemnity, and the
proposition of opening a new port,
and try to settle the difficulties created
by Nagato, and demand a reduction
of all duties to an ad valorem rate of
five percent, on imports and exports.
It was also hoped that they might
come to a clear understanding of the
legitimate power of the invisible
sovereigu of Japan, the Mikado.
Thc Fenian Brotherhood.
The Senate, as it is called, of this
organization is now in session at New
York. At their first meeting, on the
2d instant, there was a very large and
enthusiastic audience. There was no
lack of enthusiasm for the cause or
the purpose for which either branch
of the organization was convened.
The principal attraction in the assem?
blage was the presence of a large
number of ladies, who seemed to take
the greatest interest in the proceed?
ing?. Speeches endorsing O'Mahony
were delivered by a number of his
enthusiastic Fenian admirers, and
much anxiety was evinced for the re?
sult of the Convention.
General T. W. Sweeny, the Fenian
Secretary of War, publishes a mani?
festo to his countrymen, upbraiding
them for their dissensions, and en?
treating them to forget their quarrel
and return to duty in the great tusk
of freeing their fatherland. He re?
commends a convention of delegates
from the different circles of each
State, to decide on whom they will
repose confidence, O'Mahony or him?
self, and then allow the successful
man to carry out his plans.
A French Fenian organization has
sprung up along the New York bor?
der among th? French Canadian resi?
dents of this State? and, like the Irish
Fenians, they have got to quarrelling
among themselves. One faction is
anxious to plunge headlong into war,
declare against England, establish a
Canadian Republic, with its capital
and departments at Elmira, New
York, and to invade Canada. The
other faction is opposed to any such
rash action, and the Head Centre, or
Chairman of the Convention, has ad?

this morning, and which explains the

of turfmen were seated in thc club?
house after the close of the day's
races, when a lady at the door sent
for a well-known Major, and requested
him to raise a subscription for the
purpose of repairing the little church
edifice. The Major promised to do
so and report to-the good lady on the
morrow. About 9 at night, a huge
bowl of punch was brewed while a
party of gentlemen were seated
around the table enjoying a game of
bluff. The punch being ready, the
game was suspended for a moment,
the beverage disappeared to the
health of the universe, when he

jolly young bachelor proposed to give

POLITENESS UNDER DIFFICULTIES.
A gentleman not a thousand miles
from New York, had the exhuberant
fortune of five successive wives. He
had buried them, one after another
as death made its demand upou
thom, and three or four of them
happened to be in different places, at
quite a distance from each other. Two
or three of them were in different
towns. To reconcile his sense* of
order and numerical duty, he started
on a tour of collection to bury them
all in one place.* He mounted the
wagon himself and drove around till
he had got them all together in one
load, and then, as fate would have it,
was obliged to drive by the house
where the lady cf his present address?
es, to whom he Lad offered himself,
was sitting at the open window.
Seeing her sitting there, he bowed to
her, as any gentleman would, as he
drove by with bis precious load of
five collins with their contents. It
was too much for the lady ; she declar?
ed she never would have him, aud has
to this day kept her word.
A bill is before the Georgia L?gis?
lature to prevent the immigratioy of
persons of African descent. /
A Flexible Currency.
The following interesting article we
clip from the New York Journal of
Tho Secretary of the Treasury de?
clares that the seeming prosperity to
which it leads is all fictitious and un?
real, and he urges contraction as the
only remedy. All this is sound, and
but repents the argument so often
employed by us in opposition to this
expansion before it became the settled
policy of the department. But why
not carry the argument to its logical
conclusion V If tho currency should
be contracted, because inflation leads
to ruin ; and if that contraction
should be without any fixed limit,
because only a flexible currency can
adapt itself to the requirements of
trade, why not argue for the repeal of
the fixed limit in the issues of Na?
tional Banks ? This limit is now three
hundred millions, and it is proposed
to make it four millions. Is this a
flexible currency? But it may be
said that this amount is an outside
limit, and that'the currency will still
bo flexible within it. But is this true ?
Must not every National Bank, or?
ganized under thc law, deposit a cer?
tain proportion of its capital for part
of this currency ; and is it not thus
compelled, by every motive of self
interest, to issue the whole amount ?
Under the flexible system, (for the
State law established such a system,)
our city banks voluntarily reduced
thc volume (if their circulation from
about ten to a little above two million
dollars. If thc national act permit?
ted such a discretion, fewr of them
would now take out a dollar of the
new issues. But there is another rea?
son for this charge of a want of flexi?
bility in this arrangement. Under
the old .system, provision was made,
in the natural order of cause and
effect, for the contraction of the cur?
rency when trade did not require it.
1 Under thc new system, this is re?
versed, and provision is made for its
expansion when trade does not re?
quire it. It is a legal teuiler from the
Government, and may be crowded
out to tho full extent of the provision,
without the least sympathy for tho
requirements of trade.
We make these suggestions because
wc desire to perfect the action of this
system, since it must be tried. Tc
carry out the principles laid down bj
the Secretary, Congress must : First
Repeal the clause making the Na?
tional Bank notes a legal tender, ano
simply authorize their receipt for duos
to the Treasury. Second : Changt
the limit of deposit, and allow ead
bank to take out as little of the nev
currency a? it chooses. Third : Au
thorize the Secretary of the Trea
sury to arrange with all the banks tc
redeem their issues upon notice o
their accumulation in the Treasury
These improvements would go von
far to commend the new system to th*
popular approval, and to gjve uni
formityof value to the currency thu;
