THE STATE DEBT.
The great question that has been
occupying the attention of our Leg
.Mature for the last week, and very
properly so has been this subject.
It is an incumbus upon the pros
perity of the State, a burden upon
our people, recognized by every
one, but, like the old man in the
Arabian tale, it seems impossible
to shake it off.
The plans for relief proposed are
various, but all based upon the
one acknowledged fact,that it is out
of the power of the State ever to
fully pay all of the debt out-stand'
ing against her. Numerous schemes
for comnromisinz with the bond
holders have been suggested and
with much plausability, but they
are all open to the objection based
upon a want of common consent and
co-operation among the creditors,
a? well as the impossibility on the
part of the State to negotiate a
loan bv which it would realize
enough to effect the compromise,
It would surely be unwise to at
tempt a compromise without the
agreement of a large majority of
the bond holders.
The plan which recommends it
self to us as the most feasible, is to
treat the State as an insolvent in
dividual and surrender to its credit
tors all its available assets ; its in
terest in rail roads, banks, &c, to
be divided equally among them
This smacks somewhat of repudia
tion, but it is but exercising the
rights granted to individuals in
cases of bankruptcy. The State
is hopelessly involved, her credit
is gone and her people are burden
ed with taxation and financial ruin ;
then however much we might desire
to see her pay to the fullest extent
her just debts, we must acknowK
edge her involvency and deal with
it as a fact.
The whole matter of the State
debt is one demaning the greatest
care and consideration from our
Legislature, for it involves not only
the material interest of the people
of North Carlina, but their charac
ter and reputation.
It does one good, in this age of
cant, to hear sentiments that we
know to be honest, and that are
said with a blunt and out spoken
disregard for what some one might
happen to think of it. We have
heard apologies ad nauseam for the
conduct of the Southern people in
the great rebellion, and hence feel
like throwing up our hat and vent
ing a good old fashioned Confeder
ate whoop when we find a man
hone3t and bold enough to tell the
American people that we were no
traitors when we drew the sword
for constitutional liberty, that we
are not ashamed of our course but
proud of it, and that under similar
circumstances we would do it again.
That while the ultima ratio regum
has decided against us, and we are
again citizens of the government
and are true and loyal, we still
glory in the patrotism and valor
that for four years maintained us
in such an unequal contest.
Xo tine North Carolinian can
read Gen. Vance's manly speech,
delivered in the House of Repre
sentatives last Saturday week,
without feeling proud that it was a
son of the old " Noth State " who
dared to stand forth in defence of
his depressed and scandalized peo
ple. Mr. Fort of Illinois, having
asked Mr. Vance if he thought the
rebellion right, he replied, that ho
did, and under similar circumstan
ces would rebel again. That the
South was true to the constitution
in which consisted true loyalty;
that she had been willirjg to join
hands, and when Mr. Greeley had
propo-dto "shake hands across
the bloody chasm," they had, after
.seeing that he held the knife in
his hand, rushed to the very edge
of the chasm to grasp it.
It is time we had done with all
this whining sorrow about the
"cruel, fratricidal war," for heav
en knows we have nothing to be
ashamed of, but on the contrary
can boast of a grand, heroic and

vexing our National Congress. We
would be glad to lay his remarks
entire before our readers but space
forbids. .. Like the true and tried

Congress. We quote:
Which of these two roada shall wo !
take? That is the question on which
the Senate is to rote. Shall we con
tract, or shall we give to tha country
more currency? Here the battle is
joined; here the roads diverge. I ask
which shall we take ( To my mini,
supported, as I think I am.by experi
ence and history, the latter is the
shortest, surest, easiest, and best.
We cannot pay gold for greenbacks
until we get gold; we cannot get
gold until we bring it back to this
country; we cannot bring it back to
this country until our exports and
our sales bring it to us. We cannot
increase our sales until we increase
our productions; we cannot increase
our productions until we increase our
facilities for production, by giving to
the producers money at low interest
not an inflated or redundant cur
rency, as Senators would term it
but a sufficiency of low-rate money.
Sir, I want no inflation which
means a volume unduly swollen be
yond all the legitimate wants of the
country; but I make bold to say that
when a people are bundened with
debt, when every enterprise lan
guishes, when every industry is pros
trate, when widespread blight is upon
us, even inflation, which, like the
stimulant to the enfoebled pulse, may
give new life and vigor, is better than
insu$ciency. I repeat, I want no
inflation. Do you inflate the sick
man starving for food, by furnishing
to him (the nutriment which shall
bring blood to his veins, flesh to his
bones, and vigor to his whole system?
Inflation is one thing; sufficiency is a
Much has been said in this debate,
particularly by the honorable Senator
from Ohio. Mr. Sherman, as to
the relative amount of currency in
this country, and in France and
England- Now, sir, our population
by the statistics of 1870. was in
round numbers, 38,500,000. If we
calculate that the population will
double every thirty years, it would
now be, in round numbers 42 500 000.
Our circulation is in round numbers
about 5700,000,000, and if you deduct
the reserves and the amount absorbed
upon occasion by the Treasury in its
sales of gold, the average available
currency cannot exceed $650,000,000,
or about $13. 16 per capita. England
has statistically $19.49; but when
you make allowance for short time
bills, for the amount of gold in cur
rency and change, it cannot be less
than $25 per head. In France, dur
ing the war her currency was at one
time $40 per capita, and it cannot now
be less than $32 per capita. Now, sir,
I ask is it inflation to give to the
people of the United States an
amount of currency approximating
the amount, which the most conserva
tive nations in the world have de
monstrated as essential to healthy
trade ? If tho experience of England
demonstrates, as it has done, that
twenty-five dollars is not too much
for her people; if the experience of
France demonstrate! that thirty-two
dollars is not too much for the French,
how is it that the enlightened states
manship of the United States has
discovered that $13.16 is enough for
us ? Are our necessities any less
than the necessities of England and
France ? I apprehend they are
greater always greater in a sparsely
settled country for circulation it is
a rule of currency is more rapid in
densely populated countries. If
therefore a five-dollar bill pays ten
debts per day, it is equal in value as
a circulating medium to a fifty dollar
note which pays but one debt per day.
I argue, therefore, that when we take
into consideration the small amount
allowed to use as compared witf
France and England, and the ad
ditionel thought that we need even
morewr capita,wa have not in reality
more than half the currency acutu
aily needed. I believe that to be tie
Was there sver such a burlesque
as civil service from a Radical
stand-point ? A Chief Justice is
wanied,and the first choice falls upon
a thick headed knave, but a brilliant
partisan. He is withdrawn and a
second nomination is made, when j
lo ! it was found that he was dis- j

O heavens ! why because he had
written a respectable letter to Mr.
Davis in which he is recognized as
the President of the Confederacy.
And when a third nomination was
made, and the lion. Morrison R.
Waite's name sent into the
Senate for confirmation, pains were
taken by the Republicans to ascer
tain certainly whether he voted for
McClellan in 1864. Mr. Waite
denied it and he was confirmed.
In this country, a man's capacity
for position appears to be rated by
his way of voting in elections.
The directory of the 43rd Con
gress shows that there are twenty
eight Confederate soldiers in that
body, three Maj. Generals, three
Brigadiers, eight Colonels, five Lt.
Colonels, five Majors, two Captains
and two Privates. Of these there
are only three who are Republicans,
viz : Senator Alcorn, of Miss, who
was a Brigadier General, and Rep
resentatives Pelham and Hays, of
Alabama, who were Captains.

GUIS' PAT1T SLATE ROOFING PAINT
A roof may be covered with a very cheap shingle, and by application of this slate be
made to last from '20 lo 25 years. Old roofs can be patched and coated, looking much
better, and lasting lorger than new shingle without the slate, for
One-Third the Cost of Re-Shingling.
The expense of Mating new shingles is only about the cost of simply laying them. The
Paint is FIRE-PROOF against sparks or flying embers, as may be easily tested by any
one, and appears from (he fact that Insurance Co's make nearly the
Same Tariff as for Slated Roofs.
For t!n and iron it has no equal, as it expands by beat, contracts by cold, and never
tr.ivl.-t ncr scales. For fences ii is particularly adapted, as it will not corrode in the most
exposed places. Roofs covered with Tar Sheathing Felt can be made water-tight at a
small erpen-e. The Slate Paint is
Extremely Cheap !
Two gallons will cover a hundred square feet of shingle roof, or over four hundred of tin
or iroD. Price ready fr r ne is 80 certs per gallop, with a liberal ii-onnt to ihe trmle.
No Tar is used in this Composition,
Therefore it does not affect the water from the roof, if turned off from the fiist few rains
On decayed shingles it fills up the holes and pres, hardens them and gives a new sub
stantial roof that will last for years. Curled or warped shingles it brings to their place
and keeps them there. It fills up till holes in Tin or Felt roofs, and STOPS THE LEAKS,

To all intents and purposes, Slate.
