Politics, Final??? and Trade.
The connection between thcso sub?
jects exists ut all times, but, in tho
present, condition of public affairs in
this country, this connection is par?
ticularly observable, and is attracting
considerable attention from thc think?
ing men of both sections.
Tho continued exclusion of the
planting States of tho South from
representation in Congress, and the
certainty, almost, that this exclusion
will bo prolonged for another year at
least ; the nefarious tax of throe cents
per pound on cotton ; tho apparent
determination of the party in power
to insist on the harsh terms embraced
in the constitutional amendment; and
the equally positivo determination of
thc Southern States to reject these
terms -all conspire to unsettle com?
mercial relations, and to keep pros?
trat? that confidence so necessary to
sustain commercial transactions and
to keep the capital of the country in
its natural avenues of trade and ex?
It is. then, evident that a continu?
ance of this political condition of
affairs must bo accompanied by a
stagnation of trade, visible even now,
both at the North and the South; but
it not only stagnates business-it
clogs Hie progress of industry, at a
time when it is so necessary to de?
velop the resources of thc country.
Financial embarrassment invariably
follows such interruptions in the ope?
rations of trade and commerce; and
the natural resnlts of an inflated and
depreciated paper currency-commer?
cial failures and bankruptcies-will
thus come upon a people who own
and occupy a country whose resources
are unequalled by an}' country in the
The prospects of tho great staple
of tho South aro not encouraging.
Cotton was, at ono time, the greal
instrumentality in regulating ex?
changes, keeping in healthful opera?
tion our foreign commerce, anc
bringing specie or its equivalent tc
tho producers, enabling them, eacl
successive year, to increase its pro
daction and develop otherwise th<
grand resources of their section. I'
built railroads, erected foundries anc
factories, and brought to us everj
needed artielo of consumption, anc'
all tho machinery and agricultura
implements required to carry on, sue
cessfully, enterprises of every kind
Now, all has changed. No capital ii
coming South for tho purchase o
cotton, because thc amount of cottoi
is not sufficient to induce it. Planter:
in Alabama and other States, evei
after they have sold their small crops
have no money left, and wo obscrvi
that, in some sections, they find them
selves in debt to their factors, afte:
the accounts are balanced.
Such is the present condition o
cotton, with no hope; of improve
mont. We do not believe, nor d<
many practical planters believe, tha
the labor wo havo left is to bo mon
relied upon next year, or tho yea:
after, than it lias been in tho past
Tho oxpeiienee of Northern men win
have made the experiment of plant
ing cotton, it is asserted upon gooi
authority, has been so discouraging
that no moro capital will como iron
that section to tho South to aid in it
Such is tho deplorable condition ti
which radical legislation has brough
the country, and such will bo its con
dition-if not worse-so long as thc;
have legislative control iu the conn
oils of tho nation. Faith, enduranc
and patient working and waiting wer
never moro needed by any peopl
than they are needed now by the pee
plo of tho South.

t?c-nc nt I Assembly*
Wc anuex thc latest despatches o?
the proceedings of tho General As?
sembly of the Presbyterian Church,
South, now in session at Memphis:
Tho Canons of Discipline -were
taken up and read by Kev. Dr. Adger,
Chairman of tho Committee on thc
same, but was stopped by Rev. Dr.
Miller. It is due here to state that
these canons have been under consi- j
deration and advisement by a special
committee for the last niue years,
and are as able and theological as
anything of the kind that is extant.
Dr. Miller wished to ask whether
these rules recognized baptized chil?
dren as subject to the rules of the
church, and to bc governed by them?
Dr. Miller then entered into ii lengthy
argument, which was able and deci?
sive, that children baptized by Chris?
tian parents were as much members
of tho church as those who are adults.
Spoke of thc covenant made with
God and His children, accepting their
children into tho covenant. Ho then
drew a very striking parallel between
tho Old Testament Church and the
New, and from that concluded that
the child was subject to excommuni?
cation for disbelief as much as the
Dr. Adger thought, with all due
deference to tho brother's opinions,
that ho had some wild notions. Did
not thiuk the brother had any au?
thority for his views. Said the chil?
dren were not accountable; conse?
quently, the vows of parents were
not obligatory on them only so far as
the duties of child to parent. That
the Church could not "haul them
up," try them for unbelief, and turn
The order of tho day for reports of
executive committees having arrived,
Kev. Dr. Wilson, Chairman of the
Executive Committee: on Foreign
Missions, read the report, which was
Dr. E. T. Baird then read the re?
port of thc Committee on Publica?
tions, with one from the treasurer of
the committee, which were also re?
The discussion of the relation of
baptized children to discipline in the
church was concluded the next day,
and the canon, as reported by the
commissioners, was adopted. An im?
portant report on beneficiary educa?
tion was presented by the chairman
of the committee appointed by the
last General Assembly. Carson's dis?
ciplinons far as chapter'.), wasadotp
ed, with slight modifications.
STOLEN.-Rev. Dr. Adger, of South
Carolina, in a letter to Dr. Backus, of
Baltimore, lately published, makes
tho following statement, and vouches
for tho fact:
"When General Sherman's anny
passed through Winnsboro, S. C., a
Captain Fuller and six others of that
army, robbed one of the ruling elders
of the Zion Presbyterian Church
there of an elegant silver communion
set, the gift of a dying female mem?
ber of the same, costing $280 in New
York, and having the Church's name
and the donor's name engraved upon
Dr. Adger makes the following ad?
ditional statement, which, for the
honor of humanity as well as Chris?
tianity, wo hope cannot be true:
"A certain congregation of your
body now has that silver communion
set, which Captain Fuller presented
to them, and aro now using it for
their communion purposes, with those
names of Zion Church and its dying
sister staring them continually in the
face, as they eat the bread and drink
tho wine which set forth tho body and
blood of our common Master."
The idea that a Christian church
can colebrato the holy ordinance of
the Lord's Supper in tho uso of ves?
sels thus obtained, is too monstrous.
HOMICIDE.-We learn that Mr. Geo.
Meyer, recently appointed Assistant
United States Assessor of Internal
Revenue, at Blackville, S. C., was
shot and mortally wounded, on Mon?
day last, near that place, by two
young men of this city, named George
and Henry Sanders, brothers. Meyer
lingered until Wednesday morning,
when he expired. The brothers, San?
ders, surrendered themselves, and
were brought to this city, last even?
ing, by Sheriff Williamson, of Barn?
well District. Tho affair grew out of
diflk ulties of a private nature, the
particulars of which we refrain from
grvrng, until an official investigation
takes place.-Charleston Courier, 22rf.

We learn from a despatch by the At?
