Shoddy Literature. The Prison
of Jeff. Davis, by Doctor Craven, is il
ly disguised by the pretence that it is a
diary of casual conversations. It is a
defence of the treason of Davis, an in
dictment against our government for
inhumanity towards the prisoner, and a
manifesto to what Davis calls " my peo
ple," stimulating them to keep rebell
ion at heart, let what may be their out
That Davis dict ated the main portion
of the book, word for word, line for line,
and page for page, the most careless
reader must see. The book convicts
Craven of taking advantage of his ofr
ficial medical position to spread before
the public, what, had it been read by
the commanding officer of the fort, nev
er would have been permitted to have
passed the sally port. The world will
readily believe that Doctor Craven
magnified the ailment of Davis, for the
purpose of more readily carrying out
the plan between the arch traitor and
his confidential medical attendant.
Money was at the bottom of the matter
with Craven, for he saw large sales of
such a book. It will be devoured by
the traitors at the South, and lauded by
the copperheads at the North.
It seems Craven's work was cut short
in November by his being relieved, the
government, we presume, having de
tected the kind of medical attention the
surgeon was giving the patient. It is
a remarkable fact that the health of
Davis sensibly began to mend about
the time Craven was relieved. The
truth was Craven was doctoring Davis's
treason ; he was spending hours daily
with him, and under pretence of minis
tering to a mind diseased, he was " ma
king a good thing" in a literary way.
Of all the schemes concocted by war
speculators, this instance of literary
shoddy ism caps the climax. Cleaver
The Cottox Prospect. The Au
gusta Constitutionalist publishes a let
ter treating of the prospect of the grow
ing cotton crop, from which we make an
extract. The writer says :
" I returned a few days since from a
short visit to my plantation,dnriiig which
I carefully studied the crops of this sec
tion. The main facts of the situation'
I would state thus : Labor, 60 per cent,
of old supply ; land in cotton, about 75
per cent, of acres before the war ; cot
ton full two weeks behind time, or late,
from ordinary seasons ; the 4 stand' in
jured by defective seed used in plant
ing ; but mostly and chiefly, the grass
seems at present the greatest enemy to
be contended with. In many fields it
is so strongly matted in the rows that
the grass cannot be destroyed wtthout
destroying at the same time half the cot
ton. I think the greatest injury to the
growing crop will be found to be from
the grass ; and, on the present prospect,
half of the former average crop would
be a liberal estimate for this section, and
we are probaly much the most favored
region east of Texas. But while, just
now I could rot put the crop of this
section at over half old receipts, and
while now 1,500,000 bales would seem a
liberal estimate for the whole crop, yet
cotton has great powers of recupera
tion, and spring estimates of crops are
not worth much. Thus backwardness
f the season may be compensated by
a fall correspondingly late, and very fa
vorable growing seasons may cause the
cotton so to spread that it will fruit all
the better in consequence of the room
and air afforded by a defective stand.
Dry weather now would enable most
planters to get a start on the grass.
" Whilst, therefore, I admit the pros
pect now to "be worse than I have ever
known it, and the chances to be decided
ly against a half crop for the country,
yet I wish to say as decidedly that a
fair crop for the "land planted is by no

by large bottles, pretending to give a quart of
Extract of Sarsaparilla for one dollar. Most of
these have been frauds upon the sick, for they not
only contain little, if auy, Sarsaparilla, but often
no curative properties whatever. Hence, bitter
disappointment lias followed the use of the vari
ous extracts of Ssrsaparilla which flood the mar

The N. C. Banking Law.
AN ACT TO ENABLE THE BANKS OF THE
STATE TO CLOSE THEIR BUSINESS.
Wkekbas, The financial policy of the Federal
Government adopted to maintain the national
credit, with the heavy taxes imposed by that Gov
ernment on the Bi.nks of the State, makes it a
solutcly necessary that said Banks should close
their business, and renders a further continu ince
of their corporate existence idle and useless to the
people of the State,
Section 1. He it enacted by the General Assembly
of the State of North-Carolina, and it is hereby
enacted by the authrity of the same. That if the
Stockholders of any of the Banks chartered by the
General Assembly of this State sht.ll be unwilling
to close the busiuess of their Banks by an assign
ment, and are desirous to appropriate aU 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 in conformi
ty with the subsequent provisions of this act,
such Stockholders may by their bill iu equity in
the name of snch Bank filed in the Court of Equity
of the county in which the principal Bauk or any
of its branches may be located, require the credi
tors of such Bank to prefer and establish their
demands within such time (not less than twelve
months after decree therefor) as shall be allowed
by the Court. The Court shall upon filing 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 faithful discharge of his duties in
such sum as shall be approved by the court,
which bond shall be filed in court and may be
sued on for the use of such persons as the court
Sec. 2. Re it further enacted, That the commis
sioner appointed as aforesaid, upon filing the bond
required of him, shall forthwith become, and so
long as he shall coutiuc 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 filing such bill, and which such Bank could at
that time have law f ally 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. The 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 ef
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 Bauk at the time of filing its
bill, as such Bank might have had if no proceed
ings had been had under this act; and should any
such Bank have made any sale or transfer of its
property or effects, fraudulent as to its creditors
but valid as between the parties, iu such cases
such commissioner shall stand in the place of the
creditors, and may recover aud receive such pro
pertyor effects so fraudulently sold 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 of the
particular Bank for which he has been appointed
the Commissioner,) aud if at the time of filing
sncli bill by any Bauk any action at law or pro
ceeding or suit in Equity shall be peudiug iu the
name of such Bank for the recovery of any estate,
debt or demaud which might or ought to be vested
in such Commissioner as af oresaid, such Commis
sioner shall be admitted to prosecute the same in
like manner aud to like effect; and no suit pend
ing at any time for the recovery of any estate,
debtor demand in the namcof such Commission
er shall be abated by the death or removal of such
Commissioner, but a Commissioner to 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 been origin
ally commenced by him.
Sec. 3. Re it further enacted. That the Commis
sioner aforesaid shall in all things connected with
tne discharge of his duties as Commissioner, act
under the directiou and orders of the court; and
it 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
conrt to remove such Commissioner; aud npon
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 uses and 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 former Commissioner, shall be
forthwith vested in such ucw commissioner as
legally and effectually as if he had been the com
missioner first appointed; and the court shall have
the power to 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 in the hands or possession of
such new commissioner.
Sec. 4. Re 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 power to 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 name of 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 6ueh 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 eitneir
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-
Eare statements in writing of all claims allowed
y him; showing the character of such claims and
the evidence on 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 role or order of the court there
for. Sec 5. Re it further enacted. That the court shall
make all proper orders and decrees for the 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 demands have been
proved and established as aforesaid against the
estate and effects ot such Bank in the hands of the
commissioner, shall be entitled to payment in
satisfaction1 of the same out of the assets iu hands
of such commissioner, as the court shall order
and direct; and all such claims and demands not
prosecuted, proved and established accordingto
the provisions of this act within the time allowed
by the decree of the court therefor, shall be barred
of recovery by any action at law or other proceed
ing in equity ; and any suit brought for their re
covery otherwise than is herein provided shall on
the plea of the commissioner of such Bank be
abated, or on his motion be dismissed.
Sec. 6. Re it furtfier enacted, That it shall not be
necessary in any bill filed under this act, fo make
any particular persons or corporations parties by
name, but it shall be sufficient if the defendants
be deuominated creditors of the particular Bank
in behalf of which suit may be instituted ; and
notice of the bill shall be published for the space
of thirty days so soon as it may be filed in at least
fifteen newspapers, one of which shall bo pub
lished in the City of Raleigh; one in the city of
Tjnaneston, o. one in uie city 01 iticnmouu,
Va.; one in the city of Baltimore, Md.; one in the
city of Philadelphia ; one in the city ot New York ;
one in the city of Augusta, Go.; one in the city of
Montgomery, Ala.; one in the city of N. Orleans;
and one in the city of Nashville, Tenn.
See. 7. Re it further enacted. That any one of the
the Judges of the Supreme Court; or of the Su
perior Courts of law and equity, shall have power
at his chambers, from time to time, to make any
such rules, orders or decrees as may be necessary
or required for expediting the settlement of all
contiovereles between any commissioner appoint
ed under this act, and other parties, for the guid
ance and instruction of any commissioner in any
matter connected with the discharge of his duties,,
for the removal or appointment of a commission-.
er, or for the speedy execution of any of the
powers by this act conferred on a court of equity.
Sec. 8. Re it further enacted. That the filing by
or on behalf of any Bank, of a bill in the court of
equity, under the provisions of this act, shall,
upon the appointment and qualification of a com
missioner thereunder, be deemed and taken to all
intents and purposes to be a surrender by such
Bank of all the corporate rights and franchises
granted to such Bank ; and all laws by virtue of
which any such Bank then exists as a corporation
are hereby repealed, and such corporation shall
be thereupon dissolved, and all the eflects and
conscqueuces following or incident to the disso
lution of a corporation at common law shall ensue
thereon; and any statute law of this State to the
contrary notwithstanding. Provided, however,
TlKtt the estate, property, and rights of action
vested In the commissioner, as provided by this
act, shall not be in any way diverted or impaired
thereby, nor shall the rights of any creditor of
such Bank against such commissioner or against
the estate or effects so vested in him, be thereby
impaired or in any way affected, and such com
missioner shall thereupon be considered as the
plaintiff in the pending proceedings; and, pro
vided, further, that should there be any balance
remaining in the hands of any such commissioner
after the satisfaction of the claims of such credit
ors, the commissioner under the direction of the
court shall distribute and pay the same to and
among those who shall be justly entitled thereto
as having been stockholders or members of such
corporation at the time of its dissolution as afore
said, or their legal representatives.
8ec. 9. Re it further enacted, That all suits on
debts due the Banks contracted with a branch
Bank shall be brought in the connty where the
branch was established, and if brought in any
other county may be dismissed on motion.
Sec. 10. Re it further enacted, That this act
shall bo in force from and after its ratification
