OUR STATE DEBT
What It Amount to and
creasing.
How It it In-
How It May be Decreased and Finally
Paid Off.
In a spwli, upon the financifll con
dition of the Stab, uVliveifd on
Wednesday &t, by Senator Kdmi sh
tOOPEit, he took the jrrountl tliat in
order to inert accruing liabilities and
to prevent the bankruptcy of theState,
T.ii- railroad failing to pay their in
ter) shonld be sold, particularly tli.-ip
that are unahle to iay. The partnership
between theStatesndthe railroadHSliotild
be at once dissolved. This is recommend
ed by his Kxcellency Jov. Senter, in his
iiessaKc. and 1 commend the highly prac
tical views presented bv hitn to the Sen-
ate. The cxainpic of the Males of Penn-
uclvfmiii out MisKOnri to which he r..
are before ub, and it would be well for us
:.. iro:i: i.y me lessons m wisuom ai
forded us. The Comptroller of the Treas
urv makes the same recommendation.
Remcmtter that the interest on the debt
created for railroads. In round numbers,
amounts to f-'.J" f this sum we
receive from solvent railroads alsiat the
sum of 8iV),0(Kt, leaving to be provided
for out of the State Treasurv thesum of
JM.tUO.Omi. Now this should le stopped at
ouce. If either of the defaulting; roads
could be leased ti solvent eompuiies for
a term of years, upon the sole condition
that the companies would oiwrate the
roads and promptly nay Uia iu'.ereat on;
the bonds issued tor their construction, it i
would be well If this could lie dona.
Such, 1 am informed, is the lease of the
Memphis ami Ohio road to the Nashville
id Louisville road. If such au arrange
ment luanot be made, then, bv law, a
board of commissioner should be ap
pointed, with full power to sell the " in
terest of the State,' in ail of t he default
ing railroads, and with uutnority to trans
fer to tlsa purchaser the full lienellt of all
the statutory iies euacted in favor f the
State."
That our jpeaders uiav realize at a
glance whafthe indebtedness and con
dition of our railroads are,, we append

If we go on as we have been, sV.'iti uo
plan for our reiiet (such as that above
suggested ) is adopted, we may look
for a continuance of the state of things
pictured in the following statement of
th State debt, which we reproduce
from the I'nion and American. Tliat
pap-r says:
In order to arrive at a oorreet conclu
sion, we must be fully Informed as to the
facts. We have heretofore collated from
the report of the Comptroller of the Treas
ury, and other rejsirts made to the I.egis
1 at tire, statement showing that the lia
bilities of the Stale were over S4U,tNRl,iHRl.
We again n ur to the subject, deeply im
pressed with its importance, and satisfied
that it is only by fully" comprehending our
.situation in all "its Itesnugs. in a.l of its
length, breadth and thickness, that our
legislators can prepare themselves for the
duty imposed upon them. With but Utile
regard tn the indebtedness of the past, let
as see how we will stand in the future,
not the distant but the immediate future.
Look at the following figures, showing
the conditiou of the Slate treasury at the
end of the present fiscal yosr, iotober SO,

Mr. C'ooPKlt doi not coincide with
f vitv one of MvflHpHNIn hut that
he most heartily approved of the
views of the author in retrard to the
resource of the State; to the pledged
honor of the State; to the necessity of
retrenchment and reform in the ex- j
peuditures of the Stabp; to the duty
we owe to ouroelveR and our posterity
to pay the debt, and the only mode
i.y uliich it can be paid ami that is
hv increased taxAtion, and by a laith

At the end of the third '

exception of Jltij,4si :ls already shown. !
But instead of the balance against the '
treasury, iciober '. 'H72. it is reasonable
tn presume that there will be a large
balance in the treasurv at that tirii".
probably enough lo pay lbs interest on
the jttate debt January IsT.'i. For it moat
berne in mind mat in the foregoing es
timates no allowance is made for the natu
ral increase in the taxable property of the
Slate annually, increase in poll tax, the
annum: thai will be collected hereafter
from colnj.'d polls, amount that will be

lb7o, thev need not exetJ KUO.OM 1 D.
In addition to this there ue a consid
erable increase in the aggregate of taxable
property in :lie State and also in the uuui
bar of while polls of Iso.i over ISos. These
; things certainly shear a healthy ptaaefioai
in the right direct ion. But some will say
1 Ihetsxesare too high; that they will Is?
oppressive, and thai Ihe burden will be
too great. This is not tiro 'piostion in
controversy. The question is, does I he j
1 ilelil exist T and. if so, how can it ite paid
j wit hin a reasonable time w ith le revenue
than alreailv sluied. or in any oilier way
with as niii' h economy to the Stale?
The Stale is able to pay. The State '
1 will pay. and we know of no way by
which the payment can be made but by
taxation. Ilepudialion, or oven adispo.
i sitioji to defer paviiitnt, will cost th.
Stale Te'iin ssei inoro. than it will to
pay ilie debl in the way we have suggest-
! ed. Some propose to revive the Bank of

Is? revived it would have to pay a tax tn

That is the pres. ni tax on the notes of
all State mid stock banks. Hut lor this

WEAKENING.
Rauicalism Caves in before the Supreme
0 Court.
Prom the N'aslivillo l uion ami American,
of Thursday.
The Washington correspondent of
the Charleston Vomit r expresses the
opinion that the threatened collision
between Congress and the Supreme
Court ot the United States will be
postponed indefinitely. The Admin
istration, or Grant himself, appears
willing, after the late contest over the
Yerger case, to yield to the Supreme
Court the right of jurisdiction, and it
is thought Congress will acq UMBOS iu
this dispoeRioii. The Vourier't cor
respondent says:
"The long-threatijned contlict be
tween the Federal Judiciary and Con
gress i3 again deferred, though not set
tled. It is plain that thecontiiet Ukely
to arise from tlie Texan and Jlissis
iippi halieas corpus imses has been
evaded through the tact and prudence
of President Grant. It was first
thought that the Attorney General
would compromise the question bv
o. itlulraivinu '.lis iiiniiikilii.il In tin. 1
application Tor tho writ of habeas
corpus, in Uia! ease tbe Government
thp jlldjciary 'would hve heen openly
vll,tMin.,,. '(1 mnHutaitioiinl iriirH,i.
woulil have yielded te.e point, and
tees atlirmeil.
" The result wa seen and evaded by
the ,rttorney-(ienera.l. As he eotdii
not curry out the extreme views of ihe
Government, he took ran- that the
Government should be permitted to
retire from the field with the honors
of war. I am persuaded tiiat Grant
himself was tho prompter and author
of the arrangement which has been
finally made. Yerger and his Texan
compeer are to remain in their present
condition for au indefinite time that
is, until the Executive. Government
shall see fit to turn them over to the
civil authority for trial. The Supreme
Court, on ite part, ia to take no order
at all on the subject, remaining oou-
tent with the affirmation of lis juri -'
diction. On the other hand, ibe Ex
' ecutlve Goverrihtent relaxes its en
Irish forcement of the reconst ruction law-,
, ljur does not yield the right to it."
it appears ili.it Verger's counsel
j must havo consented to tbb dfcH)si-
tion of the ciise. as n :i hi 1ms rxs-n
made to brintr it up for hearing on its
merits. The case, as far as it halftone,
jiresents some remarkable fcaluri-s;
not the- !vt of which is that four or
live yearsgn, such a decision would
have held (o be r:ink treason, anil rt-r-hajis
have subjected the inemher ; oi
the con ft to arrest and imprisonment.
There are occasional indications Hint
the strpreni.e-y (t the law is again
assert its away, and that brute force
will in a short time give place to law.
Radicalism weakens as this change
takes place.
