Tho organ of the ring, in ita iaauo of Mon?

ern exchanges-one from Harper's Weekly,
the other from tho New Jersey National
Standard. Harper, with all bia bitter preju?

saya: "There ia ovidonce that tho better por?

stigators ot the violent deeds of tho Ku Klux.

Ui.it, with all the shrewdness of these adroit
oftioiale, they have been enabled, oven after
gaiuing admiaaiou into "ono or more of these

when the mine should be sprung, it would en*
gulph everyman of any prominence or intelli?

THE FINANCIAL COSDITION or THE COCXTUY. |
At thu annual meeting of the Boston Board J
of Trade, last week, a report was received
from tho committee appointed to report on
Senator Sumner's hill regarding specie pay?
ment. They collate annie suggestive facta
and figures. On tho first nf January, 1862,
the date of the auapenaluu of specie pay
menta, tho ourrcnoy of the United Staten In
active circulation waa ? ?GG 492 927. Tho re?
port reviews the commercial delirium, with
its petroleum and other ventures, stock and
gold gambling, defalcations, forgerice, and
breaches of trust. For all this, "the real
culprit," aaya tho report, "a false measure uf
value ie still at large." '
After the oloae ot tho war. October 1, 1SG5,
the active circulation of tue currencv waa
$1.222,203,931. Tho report i net ud ea in theae
amounts the aggregate of bank deposits,
which, it says, "being, by moans of checks,
the moat actively circulating form of bank
currency, should, of oourau, be included."
Between 18G1 and 18G8 the active circulation
of the country had doublud. The average of I
bank circulation, not including deposita at j
stated times, hail been as follows:
From 1825 to 1832, 8 yeara.. .$4 74 per capita.
From 1837 to 1838, 2 years... 8 35 por capita.
From 1846 io 1847, 2 years ... 5 08 pur capita, j
From 185-1 to 1857, 4 y oar?... 7.30 por capita, j
From 1858 to 1860, 3 yeara... C 08 por capita.
Comparo the averages of legal tender and
bank circulation aiuce the war:
In 1865.$28.91 per capita. |
IQ 1867 .21 00 per capita.
In 1869. 18 32 per capita.
In 1871. 17.80 per capita.
The returns of tho national banka indicato
a rapid oxpanaionof bank credit. During tlie
past year the deposits have increased by tho
enormous sum of $109,000,1101). mid tho bank
loans during the samo time $106 000,000.
In the judgment of the committee, no good
reason can be given to ahow that the country
han uae for doublo the amount of currency
circulating in 1862. f ho population baa in- |
creased about one-third, and it ia not oaay to |
see why tho currency slum id increase in great- |
er ratio. If it bo said (they argue) that tho
business and wealth of thu country baa large?
ly iacroaaed, thu reply ia that the country
novar bad a more prosperous docade than
from 1850 to 1860, while thc amount of bank I
circulation diminished from $6 69 per head, in
1853. to $6 52 per bend in 1860. In England
tho bank Act of 1844 provided against any in?
crease of paper circulation, excepting againat
an equal amount nf specie in bank. Hinco
that timo tho wealth and trado of Great Bri?
tain havo enormously increased, yet thero ia
no lack of currency.
The committee then examine the principles
of Mr. Sumner's scheme foi returning to apo
cie payments by the substitution of intorest
bearing notes for greenbacks, which, it is sup?
posed, would gradually bo withdrawn from
circulation, which the committee approve aa

The story of the elder Botbacnild's Journey
from Brossais to London, after h ? -had been
aBsured of the overthrow of N apo Icon At Wa?
terloo, aud of his immonso and suodas^al
speculations there in consequence, ie wall
known. But James Fink, Jr., conceived an?J
execrated an equally brilliant stroke at the
oloae of our war of the rebellion, the particu?
lars of which, we think, have never yet been
published. With that aagaoity which distin?
guished him iu all bis career, Fisk, saw tbat
when, on tho 2d of April, 1865, (Jen. Leo waa
driven from Petersburg, his e?rrendor could
not be far distant. ,
He immediately went to Boston, consulted
with some of bia flnanoial friends and made
them partnera in his s?beme. Thia waa to
f;et the newe of the surrender of Lee and col
apse of the Confederacy for nee on Chango in
London in advance of the maU. It will be re?
membered that the Atlantic cable waa not
then laid. A small, swift steamer, formerly a
blockade runner, was purchased, fitted out
and aent to Halifax in baBaat. Neither the
captain nor officers of tho steamor knew ber
destination. Tho seor et of her mission was
solely confided to an agent of Fisk's, who was
the only passenger on board. Steam was
kept up day and night, and everything was iu
readiness for a start across the Atlantic.
Days went by, and a till the ?teamer lay quietly
in the harbor of Halifax, awaiting the expeot
od meaaage from Fisk. At length it oame. If
Jamea Fisk, Jr., had tried bia beat he oould
not have indited a shorter despatch. It waa
dated at Boston, signed Fisk, and contained
but one word-"gol'' The blockade runner
atarted for Queenstown immediately, and got
ibero two Caye ahead pf tho mail steamer.
Tho agent speeded across Ireland to London
and commenced his operations. Before twen?
ty-four hour? elapsed ho sold "short" (that ia,
sold what bj hau got,) $5,000,000 in(Coufodo
rate bonds. Hu had ordure from Fisk to sell
aa loug as he could get buyer?, but waa re?
strained by a partnur of ono ot tho Beaton
men. who waa cursed with prudence. Bat thu
operation nun pretty euccossiul, the "syndi?
cate" divided between $3,000,000 and $4,UC0,
0U0, tho proceeds of the "spuculatiou." Thia
waa a litt for James Fink, Jr., which waa very
Another incident in bia career illustrates
his fertility of resource when closely cornered
ny a powerful opponent. Vanderbilt ,ha?
grown jealous of Fisk, and determined to
crush bim. Thu readiest way to do that, he
thought,'would Oe by destroying tho business
ol thu iSrie ilailroad. With this und in view,
he issued an order lowering the ratea ou I
treight from Chicago, and asked Elie to do
line wise. Fisk aasuntod. and cattle were con?
sequently brongnt from the Wes! in great I
numbera and at small cost. By special agree?
ment', the ratea on Vanderbilt's lino aud on
Fiak'a were made uniform. Atter a few weeks,
however, Vanderbilt showud his hand. Civ-1
mg the Erio officers short notice, ho broke [
faith with Fisk, and announced that for
twenty days the freight on the Central Bail
road for cattle from Chicago woola bo $1.50 |
per head, matead of $4. ii? expected to
crush Erie by this move, but ho reckoned
without Fiak. The latter made no alteration
lo the rate on the Erie Bead, but quietly di?
rected his agent in thu Wuat to purchase
40,000 head ot cattle and aeud them by Van?
derbilt's route. The cattle were soon pur- I
chased, and Fisk had tho pleasure of seeing
Vanderbilt carrying Ireight for him for
leas than the coat ot running the trains.
Uf course, the Commodore soon grew tired of
fighting against such odds, and the rates
wure again raiaod to those of the Erie. Fisk
cleared $100,000 by thia transaction, direct
from the Central. Bul thia waa not the fall
extent of tho damage dono tho Commodore.
When the Central was blocked with Flak's
I IU.Ooo bead of eudlo, thu Erie waa open and |
I carrying other freight at ita own rates.
I Fiak appuarud to bo utterly reckless in bis
j oonduct towards bia opponents, but it waa
only in appearance. Hu waa really sharper
than tho best of his legal adviser?. When
the groat Erio litigation waa at ita height, it
waa stated tbat the Erie ofiicerawere "water
mg" the stock of the road-that ia, issuing
extra certificates ot utock to au unlimited ex?
tent . Thu Vanderbilt interest in the suit ob?
tained an inj unction from Judge Balcomb,
restraining mu President, Vice-President,
Secretary and Treasurer ol the Erie Ballway
Company from signing the certificates of
stock which were roany for iaauance. This
was a damper on tho hopes of Fisk and bis
colleagues, hut the cunning Vico-l'resideut
soon discovered a way of deliverance. Fiak
got his counsel to get out a legal document
which would havo the onect ut compelling
bim (Fiak) and the other officors of the road
to do their duty. And he directed lt to be i
done, and it waa done in thia manner: Appli?
cation waa made to Judge (Ulbert, in Brook?
lyn, on behalf of the directors of the Erie
Ballway Company, for an order restraining
tho officors of the company from refusing to
do their duty. Judge Gilburt issued tho or?
der. It waa something new ia law, and was
called a "mandatory injunction." Armed i
with this document, some of the directors
went to tho officers of thu road, and demand?
ed that they immediately sign the certificates 1
of stock which were prepared. Jay Gould,
Jamea Fiak and the other officers were thoa
forced to do their "duty," as required by law.
Before the Vanderbilt people realized the ait- I
uation and got out another injunction, $10,- I
UOO.OuO of certificates of stock were signed
But the bright side of tho character of tho
deceased ie moro pleasant to dwell on, espe?
cially at thia timo. Bia open-handed genero?
sity when our citizens wore sending relief to
Chioago will not aoon bo forgotten. He
drove two of bia boat carriage horses, with
two others, to bia relief wagon, through the
atreeta, and collected from tho people a large
quantity ot stores, which ho sent by apecial
train to* the suffering city of the Wost. Thia
relief waa timely and prevented great suffer?
ing. It ia now said that hu was most chari?
table to the poor, and tbat, too, without os?
tentation; that ho was generous and kind of
hoart. These things should bo remembered
j by thoao who are ready to caat on bis bier the
stones of wrathful condemnation. Boor,
murdered Jim Fiakl ho was popular, as was
\ demonstrated tho day ot tho Alexia recop
tiou. when he waa cheered from ono end of
Broadway to the other, and many will to-day
t sympathize with hia relatives, androgrotthat [
Hie greatest character of our city and of our
I day waa not reserved for a better fato.
