I 2b His Excellency li. IC. Scull, docer nor

Par leer, State Treasurer.
Silts: I have carefully read your replies
to nay letter to my attorneys, which ap?
peared iu thcPflOiNix. of Friday, tho 9th
inst., aud will now uuswur them. I will
ii r.Ht notice what you ure pleased to term
"tho evil spirit which prompted the pub?
lication" of my letter. I deemed it a
publio duty, though exceedingly painful
and unpleasant, to give my attorneys and
the public all the information iu my pos
session, to prevent, if possible, the fur?
ther issue of bouds, and thereby increase
the debt of tho State. My only regret
is that I was uot in a position to make
these facts public two years earlier. I
have no doubt, whatever, that it in quite
impossible lot either of you to understand
bow any person oau bo influenced by a
sense of public duly. That tho publio
may more clearly understand our re?
spective duties in regard to tho bouds, I
will statu thal, by the laws of this S'nte,
three officer? arc required to prepare
bonds. The Governor aigus, tho Trea?
surer countersigns, aud tb? Secretary ol
State seuls. This duty is purely ministe?
rial. After they ere thus prepared, tht
Fiuuucial Board (composed of the Go?
vernor, tho Treasurer aud tho Attorney
General,) take possession of tho bondi
and sell or hypothecate them, and ordei
the disbursement of tho moneys arising
from such sales or hypothecations. I
will be at once observed that my daty, ai
Secretary of Stute, is simply ministerial
I am concerned iu the preparation q
bonds only, and have nothing whuteve
to do wita thu sales or moneys resultinj
The Governor and Treasurer have stu
diously, meanly and with a audici?n
cowardice, characteristic of them, endea
vored to implicate me iu the responsibility
which attaches lo them aa individuals um
members of the Financial Board exclu
sively, for the issue and sales of boudt
This is evident trom the whole tenor c
both of their letters. A more detuile
account of the manner and the circuir,
stance* under which the "sterling loa
bonds" were sealed, will fully illustr?t
und explaiu this.
The Goveruor, the Treasurer aud mj
self bad resolved to prepare tho "sterliu
loau bouds." Tho Treasurer informe
mc thut his Excellency had authorize
his name to be printed on the bonds i
Now York, and that be himself (tb
Treasurer) required to go to New Yuri
and would be absent all Slimmer. ( L'l
reason of his absuuee can be seen L
reference to pages 514 und 515 of tl
"Reports and Resolutions," 1871-7:
where it will be noticed that ?201,81G.(
had been loaned to the Blue Ridge Rai
road, und ?203,090 used to redeem o
bonds, not only without authority of lui
butin positive violation thereof, luasniut
us this money bad beeu appropriated I
the Lunatic Asylum, the Deaf und Dun
Asylum, the schools, tbe peuitentiar
und tho salaries of officers, uud bo d tr
not remain uud withstand the indigna
remonstrances of those men whoso rigl
ful moneys bud boou thus diverted
use bis Excellency's mild term. No wu
der, then, that it became necessary
levy two taxes for one fiscal year-a
Stut., vol. 14, p. 705, and 15, p. 293-t
one to meet the regular appropriatiot
tho other to cover up their irregular a
unwarranted expenditures!) But to !
turn to the subject. I myself was abse
from Columbia that summer, havi
taken up my residence on Sullivai
Island, for the benefit of my family,
told the Treasurer, however, that I wot
authorize my clerk to seal thu bonds I
fore I leave, and that his derk could i
liver them to mine when they cac
They were so delivered, generally in I
afternoon, after the arrival of the Nor
ern truin. They were sealed by :
clerk ut his house, it being after oil
hours, and because they were required
bo returned immediately to thu Tren
rer's clerk, thut they might be sent bi
to New York by the next mail. If th
is anything surreptitious in that, it is
first time that I have heard so ruben!
and nonsensical u charge.
What were tho reasons that indu
his Excellency to send the Comptrol
General to New York to obtain posi
sion of these bouds, is certainly m
than I know. He, doubtless, posses
some of that peculiar information,
fcrrcd to in my last lotter, as tho al
lute and exclusive prerogative of
Finanoial Board. Nor oau I see vt
relevancy that statement has to me
my action. I fear that his Excelle
slyly took advantage of that ebano
attempting to elevate himself in tho i
of tho public, by parading his usual F
wickian policy of letter-writing, ostr
like, burying his head in tho saud,
mindful of his protruding body-a pc
which deceives nobody who knows t
especially tho bunters on his trail.
I will now notice what voa say al
my taking the seal to New York.
May, 1871, immediately aftor tho
jouromont of tho Tax-payers' Con
tion, the Financial Agcut requested
iu the presence of the Attorney Get
and several others, to seal the stet
loan bonds in New York, as your E:
lenoy's came was to bo printed ou t
there, by your special order, and
Parker, for tho reasons before stu
was to sign them there. Tho pro]
tion seemed to mc as exceedingly i
propriate, aud I promptly deuliuei
do so, but not before asking thc A
ney-Geuernl if such a thing were I
to which ho replied that there wat
thing illegal iu it, and thc propriety i
must bu judged by tho circumstai
I thought and still think that his E

Wo will concede this point to bim, <
cially ns it does not make u partie
dilfcreuco, as will bo secu hereafte
insisted that thc sterling loan b
should be sent to me here, und
were seut uud sealed herc.
IQ Outober, five months after, when
thu Treasurer entreated me to seal a Bmall
amount of bonds, in order to nave a vory
large amount that would otherwise be
sacrificed, I yielded conditionally, viz:
that I would eeo and judge for myself of
the emergency. I therefore took the
seal with mo to New York, having, as I
said before, the verbal opinion of the
Attoruer-General that it was not illegal,
aud whom I did not have time to obtain
a writteu opinion from, and feeling it
entirely un necessary to do SO, for in ull
my officiul and personal communications
with the Attorney-General, I have always
found him a geutlemau of the strictest
When I went to New York, I stopped ,
at the same hotel with bin Excellency,
in order to better observe the situation,
aud govern myself accordingly. On this
occasiou, I had determined not to seal
be/ore his Excellency had agreed to sign,
though neither law nor custom required
mu to do so; it was simply a matter of
convenience, notwithstanding his Excel?
lency's studied attempt to make it up
I do uot desire lo enter into a detuiled
account of what I saw in Now York, and
I hope it will not bo necessary. Suffice
it to say, that after refusing for more
thau a week to sign the bonds required,
und swearing, by all that was supernal
and infernal, that if he signed them, he
would do it only with his kerri's blood,
his Excellency sat doini one morning,
after a protracted iuterview with the
Financial Agent, and signed them in
good bbick ink. After bis Excellency
bad signed them, I took up the bottle
of ink, and asked him if that was bi:
"heart's blood." He said, with a smile
"that was childlike and bland, " that hf
had further "light" on the subject. Nc
After bis Excellency had agreed tc
sign, I resolved to seal. I then told bil
Excellency that I had the seal with mi
and had resolved to seal. He said tba
ha waa surprised; if he were, it certainly
was not visible. He also says that le
severely reprimanded me for bringin|
the seal to New York. This is false
Conscious, from experience, that bis Ex
cellency has one of those peculiarly for
getful memories, that are very conveni
eut lo their possessors, when they desir
to extricate themselves from a difficul
position, I did not content myself wit
his verbal assurances, as in the case c
the Attorney-General, but required hir
to write a letter authorizing me to prc
duce thu seal before I would use it, an

The faut of the matter is, his Excellent

and the narrowness of his owu mind I

Thu question is not who prepared tl
bonds, whether he signed before I seale
or rice versa, but what was done wi
thom after they were thus prepared?
his Excellency condescends to "rise
explain" to the public, I apprehend th
would be much more satisfied with
minute and detuiled account of the ma
ncr in which the bonds were dispos
of aud the various uses to which tl
moneys have been applied. Such pai
fully interesting items, for instance,
these: By what authority of law caa
he, as Chairman of the Financial Boar
aud Mr. Parker, as a member and Tn
surer, take the tuxes or the proceeds
the sales of bonds and loud them to t
Blue Ridge Railroad Company, redet
old bonds, ns above referred to, and i
commodato their friends and charge it
Hts Excellency states that there
$500,000 of bonds in the hands of t
American Bank Note Company, wbi
were returned to thom last November
be canceled, aud that they have be
sealed. It may be so, but I don't I
lieve it. But if Healed, they were sea
before that time; but I will give my r
sons fur doubting the statement. Tl
can't be "sterling loan bonds," for tl
were all canceled. They can't be "ci
version bonds," for if they were,
would have much rather bad th
