"Where are the Gold Watches ? The
question " What becomes of all the pins ?"
now sinks into insignificance beside another
inquiry of more serious moment, What has
become flf all the gold watches t This coun
try has been famous for these glittering time
pieces. Not a well-to-do-gentleman in any
part of the land but had his gold ticker ;
they were an indispensable portion of a
young lady's daily attire; and even beardless
boys were eager to possess the coveted treas
ure, and could not wait for it until they
came to man's estate. But, unfortunately for
the happy owners of these elegant articles,
the eye ot the greedy tax-gatherer was caught
by their glitter, and they were to 1b made to
contribute to the national revenue. Any
gold watch in use. worth less than one hun
dred dollars, was to be charged one dollar,
and when valued at over one hundred dollars
was to pay two dollars tax per annum. At
this precise moment, by a singular coinci
dence, a large part of the gold watches in
many States disappeared from record. The
sudden vanishing of so much valuable prop
erty should be a matter of public concern,
and we desire to direct toward it the atten
tion of all who are interested, in the hope ot
obtaining some explanation of this remarka
ble phenomenon. The following, from the
latest official return of the Commissioner of
Internal Kevenue, exhibits the extent of this
startling loss, and may partially aid in its
GOLD WATCHES JS THE UNITED STATES.
( From the official returns.)
States aud Worth less than Worth more than
Total, 0,654 1,242
Thus we have only 7,896 gold watches
left, out of all the thousands which were
owned before the war ; and some States
have not a single specimen. Rhode Island,
the home of the wealthy Senator Sprague,
lias not one of the yellow treasures, even of
the most inferior description. Connecticut
has not one, and her late patriotic Governor,
it is fair to infer, sports only a silver bull's
eye of the antique pattern. And Wisconsin i
Iowa ? Minnesota f Kansas ? and the other
blanks? Alas! we have no answer. Ver
mont has two, but they are worth less than
one hundred dollars. Only two gold watches
of .auy description in ail Vermont ! In Mich
igan there is one. Who is the fortunate
man ? Will not some Historical Society in
that bereft commonwealth give us the name
of this fortunate gentleman who still retains
his yellow time-piece? Strange to say, Mis
souri heads the list and has been the ka-t
"spoiled" by the threatening tax-gatherer.

Senator Caklilk. Hon. John S. Carlile,
formerly United States Senator from West
Virginia, who is now a resident of Freder
ick, Maryland, le thus spoken of by the
Wheeling Litelligencer :
" We understand that our ancient friend,
the Hon. John S. Carlile, since he became a
resident of Maryland, lias changed for the
better in all respects, and that recently he
-lias expressed himself as decidedly in favor
ot the Registry law in that tstate, scouting
the .idea that men like Bradley Johnson, Har
ry Gilmor, and Marshal Kane ought to be al
lowed to exercise political power in the State
after having for years fought to drag Mary
land into the rebel confederacy."
A Georgia Oath. The Internal Revenue
Bureau received the following amended iron
clad oath from a Georgian, appointed assis
tant assessor for one of the sub-districts of
'' I, , of the county of , and State
of Georgia, do solemnly twear that I have
never voluntarily borne arms against the
United States since I have been a citizen
thereof, except as a Captain iu the Confed
erate States army ; that I have given no aid,
&c, to persons engaged in armed hostility,
except as aforesaid."
A SnEEP Shearing Machine. A wonder
ful machine for shearing sheep is among the
novelties which has abtained & place in the
Patent office. It is the invention of an in
genious buckeye, and is said t o possess power
and flexibility, so that when an individual
specimen of the ovis ariesis submitted to the
action of the machine he has bo time to utter
a cry, great or small, and before lie knows
what has happened to him he is thoroughly
A French magistrate, speaking one day
to a friend, said: "We have just been eating
a superb turkey ; it was excellent, stuffed to
the neck, tender, delicate, and a high flavor.
We left only the bones." "How many of you
were there?" asked the friend. "Two," re
plied the magistrate, "the turkey and my
self." Conversing one day with a fashionable
and pretty belle, the fastidious Mr. Spriggs
observed that "ladies that lisped wished to
be kissed." The young lady had before been
speaking unaffectedly, but now replied, "tho
i've head thay."
CnojCE of Friends. Anfistlienes used
to wonder at those who were eurious in buy
ing but an earthen 2iA,tosee that it had
no cracks nor inconveniences, and yet would
be careless in the choice of friends to take
them with the flaws of vice. Surely a man's
companion is a seccond genius .to' sway him
to .the good or bad.

AN ACT TO ENABLE THE BANKS OF THE
STATE TO CLOSE THEIR BUSINESS.
Wiiereas, The financial policy of the Federal
Government adopted to maiutaiu the national
credit, with the heavy taxes imposed by that Gov
ernment on the B..nks of the State, makes it ab
solutely necessary that said Banks should close
their business, and renders a further continuiuce
of their corporate existence idle and useless to the
people of the State,
Section 1. Be it enacted by the General Assembly
of Vie State of ArA-Carolina, and it is hereby
enacted by the authrily of the same. That if the
Stockholders of any of the Bauks chartered by the
General Assembly ot this State shll be unwilling
to close the business of their Banks by on assign
ment, and are desirous to appropriate ail the estate
and effects of such Bank lor the benefit of its
creditors, and to close its business and surrender
their chartered rights and franchises iu conformi
ty with the subsequent provisions of this act,
such Stockholders may by their bill in equity in
the name of such Bank filed in the Court of Equity
of t he county in which the principal Bank or any
of its branches may be located, require the credi
tors of such Bank to prefer aud establish their
demands within tueh time (not less thau twelve
mouths alter decree therefor) as shall be allowed
by the Court. The Court shall upon tiling such
bill appoint as commissioner a suitable person
acquainted with the business of such Bank, who
shall be paid for his services such sum as may be
allowed by the court. Such commissioner shall
give bond with ample security, payable to the
state for the faittful discharge of his duties in
such sum as shall be approved by the court,
which bond shall be iiled iu court and may be
sued on for the use of such persons us the court
Sec 2. De it further enacted, That the commis
sioner appointed as aforesaid, upon tiling the bond
required of him, shall forthwith become, and so
long as he shall contiue such commissioner and
no longer, shall be vested with all the estate, ef
fects aud rights of action which such Bank posses
sed, had or held or was vested with, at the time
of tilii.g such bill, and whh.li such Bank could at
that time have lawfully sold, assigned or trans
ferred, including all debts due to such Bank or to
any person for its use and all liens and securities
therefor. Tiie court may require such Bank by
its Cashier or other proper officer to endorse
without recourse, all such bills or notes, draw all
such checks or orders for money and execute such
other paper writings as the court shall deem ne
cessary or useful to enable the commissioner to
demand or recover and receive the estate and e'
fects of such Bank for the benefit of its creditors.
The commissioner shall have the like remedy to
recover and receive all the estate, debts and effects
belonging to such Bank at the time of tiling its
bill, as such Bank might have had if no proceed
ings bad been had under this act; and should auy
such Ban'i have made any sale or transfer of its
property or effects, fraudulent as to its creditors
but valid as between the parties, in such cases
such commissioner shall stand iu the place of the
creditors, and may recover and receive such pro
pertvoretleets so trauduleutlysold or transferred.
although such Bank could not have done so. In
all suits prosecuted by such Commissioner at
law or in Equity the plaintiff shall be styled "The
Commissioner, ' (adding thereto the name ot trie
particular Bauk lor which he has been appointed
the Commissioner,) and if at the time of tiling
such bill by any Bunk any action at law or pro
ceeding or suit in Equity shall be pending iu the
name ot such Bank lor toe recovery ot any estate,
debt or demand which might or ought to be vested
in such Commissioner as atoresaid, such Commis
sioner shall be admitted to prosecute the same in
like manner and to like effect; a-'d no suit peud
ing at auy time for the recovery of auy estate,
debtor demand in the nameof such Commission
er shall be abated by the death or removal of such
Commissioner, but a Commissionerto be appoint
ed in such cases (as is hereinafter provided) shall
be admitted to prosecute the same in like manner
and to like effect as if the same had beeu origin
ally commenced by him.
Sec. 3. De it further enacted. That the Commis
sioner aforesaid shall in all things connected with
the discharge of his duties as Commissioner, act
under thu direction uud orders of the court; and
il any such Commissioner shall refuse or unrea
sonably delay or neglect to obey any rule, order
or decree of "the court, it shall be the duty of the
court to remove such Commissioner; and upon
such removal or upon any vacancy by death or
otherwise, the court shall appoint some other
person Commissioner, who shall enter into bond
in such sum as the court shall direct in like man
ner and for the like nsesand purposes as provided
in cases of the Commissioner first appointed;
and thereupon all the estate, property, effects
debts and rights ot action vested in such Bank
after the time ot filing its bill, not before lawfully
disposed of by any loruier Commissioner, shall be
forthwith vested in such new commissioner as
legally and ellectually as if he had been the com
missioner lirstappointed; and the court shall have
the powerto require any former commissioner or
the representative of any deceased commissioner,
to surrender to such new commissioner any such
estate, effects, money or evidence ot debt which
of right should be iu the hands or possession of
such new commissioner.
Sec. 4. B? it further enacted. That all demands'
of creditors may be preferred aud proved before
such commissioner, and for all purposes connect
ed with the investigation of the demands of any
person claiming to be a creditor as aforesaid, the
commissioner shall have powerto administer all
oaths required in the course of such proceedings.
Any supposed creditor whose claims shall be
wholly or in part disallowed by any commission
er, may appeal to the Court, where the same shall
be determined according to the course of the
Court, or decided at law, as the court may direct ;
and in all such appeals the case shall be docketed
in the name of the creditor against "The Com
missioner of " (adding the nameof the Bank
of which he is commissioner,) and shall be tried
and determined as like suits between other parties.
In all cases in which any such commissioner shall
be a party, whether plaintiff or defendant, and it
shall appear that there has been mutual credit
given by the Bank, and any other corporation or
any person who is the opposite party, or there are
mutual debts between them, whether such debts
be due and payable or not, the account between
the parties shall be stated, and one debt shall be
set off against the other, and the balance of such
account only shall be allowed or. paid on eitheir
side respectively ; and the costs in all cases shall
be paid by either party as the court shall direct.
The commissioner shall from time to time pre
pare statements in writing of all claims allowed
by him; showing the character of such claims and
the evidence oh which their validity is based ;
and there shall be no application of any funds in
the hands of such commissioner to the satisfac
tion in whole or in part of any claim whatever, '
except under a rule or order of the court there-
Sec.5. Beit further enacted, That the court shall
make all proper orders ana aecrees loruie collec
tion of the assets of such Bank, of every nature
and description, and for the payment of the costs
and expenses incident to the proceedings. The
creditors whose claims and demauds have been
nraved and established as aforesaid against the;
estate and effects of such Bank in the hands of the;
commissioner, shall be entitled to payment in.
satisfaction of the same out of the assets in hands;
of such commissioner, as the court shall order'.
