THE MEMPHIS DAILY APPEAL.- THURSDAY, 3 16, 1870. FINANCE AND TRADE. Omen or thb Dailt Appial, I Memphis, Juae 14, 1870. ( la opposition to ths proposed repudia tion of the misapplied and misappro priated bonds ol our State, it is argued that they were accepted in good Csith by the present holders, and that since they have passed into second hands it will be impossible to reach them. To this we hsve to respond that although that argu ment was advanced to protect the inter ests of the people who held the 1S61-2 issues of the Bank ot Tennessee, yet the Federsl Government, acting upon infor mation at second hands, and that is known to us to be untrue, has forced our Legis lature to a repudiation that has brought beggary to many cultured homes. In this case we propose to repudiate that which can only aOect those who ware in the rings or in the Interest of the rings which secured the issuance of these bond. Poor men and women cannot be hurt by the refusal of the State to pay bon is that have been secured under fraudulent pretenses, and that have never been applied to the uses for which they were intended. Hach s coarse can only reach those who have shared in the profits or those who hsve purchased for profit. We therefore urge npon the Legislature the repudiation of every railroad bond issued since 18l that has not been nsed for the legitimate purpose of their issue, our bond-holders can ess er bear with this trial than the widows and or phans of the Southern soldiers could the repudiation of the Tennessee money left to them as the only legacy and the sole source of support in what has proven so far a trying future. The telegram pub lished by us from Sew York yesterdsy, setting forth that the Tennessee railroads were buying these bonds with a view to a big speculation we cannot believe true. Tti -e who .untrol our existing raaCoad corporations are men of at least ordinary shrewdness, and certainly will not tamper with these securities until their value is belter defined. At present they are as nix." In a paragraph of yesterday, w he ran we called attention to the growth of tiro and lite iusurance in Memphis, we failed in our enumeration of fire companies to me!jti'n the Mississippi Valley, of which oar old aud esteemed friend W. B. Wal dran has recently beeu elected Secretary. Mr. Waldran is well known in financial . in les, and i appreciated as one of the most cautious, shrewd and sur-essful financiers in our section. His long con nection with our railroad interestssecureil for hiin a prestige and character (and lustly, trto,) that must be shared by the Company with which he is now connected, and tor which we predict a telling success in the future. The news comes to us, and we regret to publish it as a fact, that CM. Sam Tate, .me ol t he foremost railroad men of the South, a gentleman of pre-eminent abil ity, lies on a bed of pain and suderiog, and so low that his life is despaired of. We can ill afford to lose Col. Tate at this time, lie is needed now more than ever. We are but entering upon the oareer of railroad prosperity predicted by him and for which he has Labored so long. We are but iost beginning aud need his services as a guide upon a road with witu'ti he is familiar, and where, with Wwlu au4 vireenlsw and Forrest and Boyd, he can lead this community to success. We hope for letter iewa of Col. Tate to-morrow, and will be glad to publish the fact f his rapid recovery. Our attention has lsen called to an evil that is difficult of remedy, and to which we must, in the performance of our duty, call the attention of our planters, the mercantile couiiuunily, unfortunately for themselves, being already too familiar with it. It is that much cotton has been received iu this market falsely and fraud ulently packed, the bales filled in with trash of all sorts, and sometimes water packed. We learn that one of our lead ing cotton houses has had to allow several reualea ou their Liverpool bills on aocouut of stones and mud taken from tbe heart of bales of cotton packed in the Missls sappi Vllev, and sold with a purpose to roll the spinner, or tirst confiding pur chaser. It so bsppens that iu all tbe In dian. -e uuiier our knowledge, last Mem phis purchaser has bsd to suffer and aa- i dure this robbery aud refund to tbe spin ner iu proportion lo its amount. 1'he honor of the planting community is at slake in this matter, and we hope our appeal will reach every member, that this : mug of fraud be stopped, be suppressed, it in nd other way by local associations loruied for the maintenance of tbe credit and good name of a class who heretofore have stood nigh, as beyond any possi bility of reach by the corrupting lffriu-en.-es of the day. And while the planters are redressing "this grievance, it wonld be well fir them to take Into consideration another that threatens to grow end assume dangerous proportions; that is the putting up cotton iu small , es, jui.l the use of unnecessary quan tities i't baling and rope. Jsooner or ister ire are uound to hear from tbs Northern and Kuropeau customer on this head aud to liaie trouble. The recoil la sure to coino, and when it does, it will be sweeping in measures for the preven tion of all such penny-wise and ound foolish schemes. It is as usoessary to maintain mercantile character as i!ier-.-.tutile credit. Indeed, the one argues the other. It is therefor to the internets of all engaged in cotton proUuo-r and seller 'hat it should reach the msuulsc turer clean, free from trash, carefully and honestly Backed, aud with as little ban King atid cops as may be necessary for its safe earns? and conveyance to mar ket. Memphis has a good name abroad, she must preserve it. To Jo so she relies in ! ui it rely upon thfl planters who wake this their market for the saLe of their cotton crop. It is iu the cotton as in al other business " Honesty i the Is-st policy." To illustrate this, we will tell a story that is vouched for (a us as being true in every particular: Be fore the war, in tbe viciuity ol a pretty Ptlie town iu a neighboring State, UulatM miles from Memphis, a we -t.i-.lo ;.. inter j. ked iu the middle of a bale ol hue cot lou an old and very lare grindstone, that bad doue good service in its lime, and hail Set-n thrown aside. He sold this bale to a of the Lown alluded to. who in In old it to a merchant of MW.H". ami turn erebaul of Liverpool. lhel,u- he to a u haul slid 11 to a r rein-u mau- i-r .ml mer ou opening the bale, found ut'iwttirer, wn the old stone on srnifti in planters ne- Nnr kuiv an anil sues. gisMs, Ii ul whetted 1. .rued it to Uvir- snd he iniiuodialelv re ssi to Mobile, 1 ... a uki.. "ue..e .s -o.r, Whence ..,.1 fe,..,. 1 I, ere to 1 hM lift I ,- t . U W ""'" it found its wav to the yard of th. Planter f IU to the astonishment and amazement iieer x-s. who could not believe thai stone they bsd parked under the diree MM of their master bad been to France and bak iu so short s time. It is need-li-ss to say that all the parlies were reim bursed. The neurhbors of tbe unfortti ii ale man made up a purst and j.aid the auioaot of lh fund, and then tarred aud feathered him previous to driving; him from them iu disgrace. This severe pun ishment served as an example for a long time. We bojie it will mil have to be re pealed in order that tbe honor and credit of tbe planters of tbe Sofllh may be up held. The money market begins to show signs of an early era of scarcity, which, so far a. in.ii uions bids lair to be as strin gent as it waa last season. Already more than one bank reports currency close, with a demand in excess of their ability to supplv. We must, however, add that this is not generally the case, as other iu stitatious have ample means ou hand at present to discount such paper as they look upon as desirable, and are at tbe same time well hied in tbe way of bal ances cash. There is littleor no exchange oilenu. aud the demand for it is fair. some banks offering to take cotton bills at ' , premium, though tbe rate is par as a rule. In checking we learn of no rebate from premium. City bonds are wanted at ii:, but none are oil . red. Other Soulheru securities I are nominal. City scrip is weak at TOc buying, selling at TMu'-'k as to amount. ( 'oil ill v w arrants are iu light ouih1; dealers buy at 72()72e aud sell at 7f475e.
