General Terry has aneumed to call a Military 1
Commit-eion to determine ii|ton the eligibility of
members of the Georgia l/egi*lat ure. and that
the President, Secretary ot War and General of
the Army communicate what order* they have
iw>ued to General Terry on the snbject.
Mr. Sumi;oi objected to its present considerations.
and it went over.
Mr. W'ilwn Introeluced a bill jririn<r iwrtinn
to the ?Idow of the lau President Lincoln. Referred
to Committee on Pensions.
Mr. Drake, from the Committee on Karal Affair*.
reported the bill for the relief or certain
naval contractors, which was discussed and laid
over.
The bill to provide a national currency of coin
notes, and to equalise the distribution of circulating
notes, was taken up.
Mr. Sherman did not propose to make any
elaborate financial speech, but merely to state
tae designs of the bill?first, to equalise the dist
ibutiou ot the currency and to provide tor the
i-*ue of coin notes. The present distribution ot
the bank circulation i* grossly unfair. Throe
States with one-fifteenth ot the imputation?
Massachusetts, Kbodc island, and Connecticuthave
about one-third of the circulation. Tbe
Southern States, with a population of 11 milions,
have not half the bank circulatioa of Massachusetts,
and the West is almost as bad ofl. This
gross unfairness has grown out of a violation of
the lam by the Comptroller of the Currency and
ilie Secretary of the Treasury, as a reference
to the laws would clearly prove. So soon
a-> the war was over there was a great rush to ;
t organize new banks, and the circulation was
' issut d to them under co\ er of an amendment to |
ad Internal Rpv^nnp Kill ?11 -? *?
VM*. vav tuc minieff m 1
that provision expired on July l, l*VS, and atter
tbat f I10,000,0i?? were distributed, in plain violation
of the law>. no that the present uneoual
distribution is nr>t occasioned by defect* In the
banking laws, bat by plain violation of the law.
And in the eastern States, where capital and
credit were not so much needed, they had this
surplus, while in the West and Kouth, where
capital was so much in demand, there wu thu
insufficient supply of tlie circulation. There
are two plans: one to call from tUe eastern
***??? tW? i?nnlw?tr?aUtiun, arid to distribute
it among the West and South-, in* ?m>,
it is contended, would sadly derange business
in the East.
