Our Financial Condition.
MESSBS. EDITORS: Our bunks atv,
broken, our credit shaken, und our
means crippled. Capital is indis?
pensable to our resurrection, and it is
needed sooner and in larger sums
than tho profits of labor and of trade
will afford, it. It is not here, and th"
difficulty of obtaining it elsewhere i
believed, by many, to bo increased
by the stay law and the usury laws.
To the latter I will confine my pre?
No satisfactory answer can be made
to tho theoretical arguments of the
economists, who say that the pi iee of
money, like that of other commodi?
ties, will, in unrestricted freedom of
bargaining, be regulated \jy demand
and supply. Yet, no trial, hitherto
made, has proved that it would be
wise to enforce, by law, all the pro?
mises which unconscionable usurers
might wring from thc hopeful and
Money differs somewhat from most
other commodities; it is kept without
expense or loss; the supply of it is
least when the demand for it is great?
est; tho need ot' it often comes sud?
denly, and admits of no delay; in the
absence of public institutions, those
who have it are generally unknown.
In tho delusions of hope, pressed by
want, tho borrower has recourse to
the nearest sJiaving-shop, and submits
to tho terms imposed upon him.
In regular business, great gains can
pay high interest. In improvements,
largo expenditures of money-princi?
pal and interest-maybe compensated
by consequent increase of price or of
advantages. But it must be borne in
mind that regular dealers and the
makers of permanent improvements
aro not the only borrowers. There
are the struggling debtors, uu willing
to relax their grasp of their posses?
sions. There are tho victims of mis?
fortune, promising to themselves
speedy restoration of their prosperity.
And there are the eager speculators,
who think that they see tho prospect
of enormous profits, and are anxious
to clutch them, with money at any
price-with cost to those with whom
they deal, and, possibly, with discre?
dit to themselves and demoralization
to the community. Tho premium
must be proportionate to the risk.
But where the security is ample, it
should not be charged with lusses
which have been endured in other
cases. The law, whilst it. removes all
obstacles in the way of worthy enter?
prise, should not forget what may
befall tho feeble and unwary.
Our present usury laws, restraining
only the conscientious few, help to
swell the increase of those whose
money breeds at the rate of five per
cent, a month. But however it may
be in populous Holland, or in Eng?
land, where the bank controls the
rate of interest, one result of a repeal
of usury laws is likely to be, in our
State, such as it has boen in other
States-interest will never sink be?
low tho highest point which the law
fixes in the abseneo of contract.
Fully persuaded, then, that the inter?
ference of tho Legislature with the
subject is demanded by tho present
condition of the State, but desirous
to avert some of tho evils .which I
think would come from a sweeping
repeal, I respectfully .submit, for the
consideration of those who will pas.;
upon this important mutter, the fol?
lowing projet for an Act:
SEC. 1. Upon the loan of money or
other commodity, for a term not ex?
ceeding one year, interest may be re?
served or be made payable at the rate
fixed by the contract of tho parties;
Provided, That if the ai." of tho law
should bo required to enforce tho
contract, and the rate fixed should bo
aboye twenty per centum per annum,
calculation of interest shall be made
in the courts at twenty per centum
for the term of the loan.
(One year, because bus: ess men
rarely require a longer tei..i. Tho
borrower, who has promised more
than he can make, should be called
to his senses before his ruin is com?
plete. Tirent)/ per cent., because only
a manufacturer, who liai the aid of
Government, or a contractor who has i
a friend in oiiice, or one out <>f ten ;
speculators, who makes a lucky hit,
eau carn no much; but if more has
been paid, let not the law interfere.)
SEC. 2. Upon all interest-bearing
demands, not regulated by contract,
the rate of interest shall bo sis per
centum per annum; and it simd be
thc same upon loans for terms ex?
ceeding a year, where, by contract,
six per cent, or more has been iixed.
(Six per cent, is a fair compensa?
tion whore there is little risk and no
labor; it is more than the interest of
half the world, is easily ' calculated,
and, if not enough, can be raised by
contract. It may, in time, become ?
the standard. By interest-bearing de?
mands, I mean what I understand the
law means-securities for money, ba?
lances iu the bands of trustees, &c.,
money lent, paid or received, and all
SEC. 3. Upon open accounts and
unliquidated demands, no interest
shall be recoverable, unless there
shall be an express written agreement
to -poy it; PYovided, lioicever, That,
by way of discount, any item in au
account or unliquidated demand shall,
at the time payment of it might have
been required, be regarded as a pay?
ment upon an interest-bearing de?
mand held by the opposite party.
(There is no greater abuse than the
bringing out, with demands of inte?
rest, old accounts that have never
been presented, purposely kept back,
forgotten by the debtor, ii' tho cre?
ditor wants interest, let bim make his
bargain properly-takeanote, orsue.
Justice demands that the interest on
a note should bc stopped by an ac?
count per contra; hut it docs md, in
other instances, suggest that all the
power should be in the hands of one
SEC. -1. In calculating the amount
recoverable in any east", when, hy
contract, interest has been fixed at
tho rale of ten per cent, or more, the
rate in courts shall bc ten per cent,
for thc period intervening between
the expiration of tho term of a loan
and the rendition of judgment upon
it. Thc tenn of every loan shall lie
understood to expire when, according
to tho security taken, the money lent
(The sooner judgment is had, thc
better for both parties; ten per cent.
is very high interest.)
SEO. 5. Interest on every judgment
may be collected under execution, at i
j thc rate of six per cent., counting
I from the dav that judgment, was reu
(There is no greater cause of dis
I appointment to debtors and fraud
I upon creditors than old judgments,
unsatisfied. If the creditor is not
satisfied with his security and Hie rate
of interest, let him collect. But let
not a small debt, by accretions of
great interest, swell to the ruin of the
debtor ami to the injury of merito?
SEC. G. In apportioning the assets
of a decedaut, every interest-bearing
demand, shall rank as a specialty.
(The great difference made between
an instrument with a scrawl and one
without, is a disgrace to the law, and
j the frequent occasion of monstrous
inequality and injustice.) C.

Tho Richmond Enquirer says: The
grand difficulty between the North
and South is briefly this- Thc North
asserts the right of the conqueror to
impose forcibly what it will upon the
South. Tin; South admits the power,
but denies thc right. The North as?
serts its right to compel the South to
endorse its own dishonor. Thc South
rejects this interpretation.
The "Texas Oil, Iron, Mining and
Manufacturing Company,"' is the
name of a new joint stock company
that has just been organized in
Texas, to develop thc oil and mineral
resources of the State. The capital
stock is three million dollars, and thc
company starts with excellent pros?
pects of success.

Southern people, and predicts the
growth of a superior race under tho
new era of emancipation.
(.?old for Cotton.
To tho question whether tho South?
ern planters should receive any thing
but gold for eottoTi, a West Tennes?
see farmer argues as follows:
"In years, past, when we used to
make three or four millions of bales
of cotton per annum, wo were foolish
enough to send it North and take
Yankee rags for it. That system
kept us poor then, and yet I fear we
are foolish enough to practice tho
same game now. If the practice kept
us poor then, what will it do with us
now? Think of this. No ono will
correct this folly if the planter does
not. The speculator won't, for it is
by that system he thrives. Now, let
the planter demand gold for his cot?
ton, and take nothing elsi1. Ho can
then take just so many of the Yankee
rags as he is willing to in exchange
for gold. So long as wo part with
cotton for rags, and the purchaser
gets gold, we grow poorer and he
richer. Tho planter holds in Ids
hands the power of redeeming the
South", and no other class can. Now
is the time. Sell your cotton for
gold and nothing else."
Upon which 4he Nashville Union
and American c. mments as follows: j
But ir. you sell your cotton for gold,
and then pay the gold, either directly
or indirectly, to the Northern man
for supplies which you think you are
bound to have, what do you make by
the operation? Or, if you have debts
to pay, and can pay them in green?
backs, what do you profit by exacting
the gold, and then converting it into
greenbacks? You have not reached
the bottom of the trouble. You must
first, get out of debt-then you must
make everything you want, or induce
your own people to make it, for yon,
and buy alone from^them. Your ex?
actions of gold foryour cotton willdo
you no good as long as you are com?
mercially dependent on the North.
That is what is the matter. Make
less cotton-raise more sheep-build
np cotton and woolen factories on
your own soil-employ your own peo?
ple to work them-produce grain and ?
meats to food them-become com?
mercially independent of tho Yankee
and everybody elbe, and tho whole
question is settled at once. If it is a
"dog in the manger'' principle, you
have been driven to it, and ure
The Nashville Banner, in speaking
of the shameless course of the Chi?
cago Times, and its proposition to
the Democracy to abandon the Pre?
sident, says: "The President has

tine be applied to every dwelling and

PUZZLED.-The Comptroller of
Georgia is somewhat puzzled to know
how to collect the taxes from ne?
groes. Tliey refuse to pay, change?
their names, residences, and float
about over the State to avoid the tax
gatherer, and generally when they
are picked up there is no money. So
tho collectors do not know what to
do, as tho law provides no remedy.
Tho railway between Calcutta and

Tho cause of fever ia tho contamination of
the blood by sonio morbific agent. Thc
nerves connected with nutrition and or?
ganic contractility suffer alteration in their
composition. The muscles, deprived of
nervous intlucnce, begin to waste, and this
wasto produces heat. The heart is in?
creased in its action, and the Mood is ren?
dered still morr- impure by receiving the
wasted tissues by the continued action of
the morbid agent, as well as by the func?
tions of tlc-lungs, liver and spleen being
impeded. Purify, therefore, the springs of
life, the blood. Use tho "Queen's Delight,"
the great blood remedy, and all morbid
agents will be removed. The Queen's De?
light has cured many cases of contamina?
tion of the blood, chill and fever, typhoid
