E) 1i NG( appointed Receiver under

(';,,ntederate States of America, enti
I,-d *'An Act for the Sequestration
,ft ith Estate-, Property and Effects
at' Alien Elnuemics, &.," for the see
ti:nl of til l:tate comprising the par
tiI? s of (cld!o, 1)e Soto, Sabine,
i-ssiuer, ('l:iiborne and Bienville, and
' r which t he Confederate Court holds
-.ions. at Shreveport. Therefore,
:it parties having business with the
aidi.e will confir a favor by comm
t.:.atting their informatiuon in.writing,
i, far a.is practicable, stating names
,'" alieus, their domicils, nature of
p.roperty, where tituiited, supposed
value, and their own residences or
places of itutsitesis, that they- may be
ra'lcd o,n tfor further informnation, as
i-ach ca~e co:ies up for examinnation.
Fear hali been expressed that per
-nmptory denmaud will be made for
pavmn'its of debts diue to aliens, and
s:hm.ltnary means used in confiscating
their property to the great detrimtent
e' the community. This is a great
nmin-take. I'Th Receiver will inot
willingly throw any ilnpedimament in
the way of businiessl but hopes, in
every instance, to secure tmhe rights
of the Goverilnment without the least
dietrimlent to private interests, and las
much as possibhl without litigation.
Let an honorable loyalty be evili
eed in. assisting the Receiver in es
tablishing those rights. Meet him
with. an honest intention to do ino
wr.ng, and you may feel full assiu
raitlle that every facility, as urgently
demanded by the exigencies of the
tines, will be extended in return.
F',r the information of the public,
I publish the second and third sec
tion.-s of the act:

EDITOR SEMI-WEEKLY NEWs:
Through your paper I wish to
make a few suggestions. In the
Confederate States a great discount,
or shave is being made on all paper
In consequence of the blockade,
we are deprived of two hundred and
fifty million dollars exchatng", ri:r our
great staples, cotton and to[,:hco.
Now to meet and supply this great
deficiency, w,, nued prompt and wise
legislatioin. - It does seen, to nme, that.
these dificulties can be met and
Let the Confederate Congress, now
in session, issue T-'I'asury notes, of
from five to ten hun:ed million dol
lars, redeemal!e from two years after
our independence up to twenty years;
based for redemption on direct tax
and tariff revenue. These Treasury
notes not to draw irtc.erest The Con
federate States Government must
then loan to the several States of her
Treasury notes, the amount the re
sptootIve States may want.
The Conftde.rate Government will,
by loan, make her notes a legal ten
der in payment of all debts.
The States, thirough legislation,
must act promptly--boldly-yea
patriotically, removing. all law, that
makes gold and silver only. a legal
tender r r debt. And by law make
the Confederate Treasury notes a
legal tender in payment of all debts.
This must be the onaJfide circula
tion ,of the Statee, and of the Gov
The Confederate Government will
stand bound for the redemption of all
her notes, and all the respective
States bound to the Confederate Gov
ernment for l,.us.
This much uh-ving been establishldl.
the currency ot the Government will
be equal and ;eneral, and no accumu
lation ot interest.
The usual plan of selling Govrz.3
ament and State bond., at thi', tille
would be almost an impossibility,
and if any sale, it would te at a
ruinous dliscount, and posit'ively' no
better secured to the holder ,,' these
notc:, a:mu whl.) w.il di.-;pute the ac
ceptance of the whole eoulntry :t thesi
notes at par.
Having tixed permanently a men
ey currency for both the General and
States Government, all taxes can be
paid. The States can make advance
on cotton and tobacco, and hold these
articles in safe keeping until the
nations of earth shall need them more
than we their mroney.
Sunki mmyuv think the writer of this
article visionary, I am aware. -We
are uow e:,::-,ed in a war, an unholy
w. ar-fait ical-infidelish war-on
ti,'- part af :air enemies. O()r ene
t'l ers say we have rebelled, . and are
rebld, and must be subjugated. What
do they lean by subjugation? An
sw'ri-f'reeomtoll t) slaves and slavery
TIhus situated, and in these times
,f great emergency, you may we I
ask wih:'At sh:all be done !
I again answer-That thle legisla
tion oft the Confedera;te Congress and
of the States, be prompt and bold in
briuing" organic .aw to our wants
and condition, during this, our great
time of need. Then if we have a coun
try, prove ourselves worthy of that
country and. our independence, we
will, from the Potomac to the Rio
Grande, recognize Confederate Treas
ury notes at par, just as good and
conveniont as gold and silver..
We expect to conquer our ifde
pendence, and fully rely on our Gov
ernrsent to redeem all her dolegations.
This confidence, and,. this currency,
must be universally acknowledged by
patriotic people, and all must - be -
patriotic. If there are any who wont
be patriotic, they must leave for
other parts, n
Let us view the Lincoln side of
this jqustion-subjugation If sub
jugation be our lot, then we shall be
gorilla slaves, and all will go with
the- common wreck.
Biut such sn event as ~.djugation
i.s not to be.possible, if we prove !oyal.
A universal currency for the Con
federate States having been estab
lished, we hb:ve the ground-work of
a people struggling for freedom laid,
and all the rest will fitly be organized,
and the whole superstructurd will
give power and stability to conquer
a peace, and establish the best Gov
ernment in the world.
