PnbMphers and Proprietors. ranks asd Currency Again. Mr. Editor: I am i constant reader of your paper and generally am latisfied with your ideas. Bat occasionally you undertake to tell the people how they ought to think on financial matters, and, as I think, yon give them a great many untruths ao many, in fact, that the troths are hidden. If yon will permit me, I would suggest that yon are somewhat too fond of croaking; you are a genuine alarmist While I am by no means an optimist, I am certain the money matters of the nation are not in so bad a way as you would have yonr readers believe. Aod what yon desire them to think is plainly expressed in your article of the 16th inst., on "National Banks and Cur rency." Allow me to call attention to some of the untruths in it. First: Under any aystsm of banking, whether "Na tional'.' (which yon so mnch object to) or State, when money is plenty it Kill teek investment at the best rates. A mere statement of that trnism is sufficient to answer the charge that becanse the bank ing system is "National," therefore does spetutaiioa follow. The system does not necessarily cause it. Money maybe plenty where there is no system at all. Again : The banks do not generally loaa to specu lators or stock brokers at the sacrifice of tbe mercantile community. It is not only not to their interest to do so, but 'tis not trne as a matter of fact. Speculators and brokers do not usually pay for the nse of money as -much as mercantile men can and do pay. The loans to the former are usually upon call, and such loans can be had, when at all, at lower rates than business paper will sell or be discounted for. To say that the banks sacrifice business men to subserve the interests of the speculators is to say that bankers are not like other men, in this, that they re fuse high rate for the use ef money to accept a lower; which is simply absurd. They do no such foolish thing. When the business community is making no demands, bankers will seek tbe specula tors and loan their surplus funds at lower rates on call I do not mean to say that the brokers never borrow money when merchants cannot Circumstances may force such loans out of the banks. I only mean that the rule is, and the prac tice ia as I have stated. Again, as to the matter of "certified checks," of which we have read tr.nch of late while the certification of checks may tend to "direct inflation," it is neverthe less a legitimate practice has been in use many years, and, notwithstanding il dangers, not one of tbe bank of this country would voluntarily relinquish the privilege or practice. The "terrible" thing attached to the practice is the certifying of cheeks before the account of the drawers are in funds to meet them. Id New York city the discretion a to whose checks shall be certified is left almost entirely with the paying teller of the banks. The other o Seers of the institutions seldom or never know wbat the teller may have done. That is part of Ht business of his dotire and with out the requisite judgment which will lake him through, be would and coald GOODS O IL II AT WELLS & not retain his position t week. Now, npon what does he base his judgment when a check is presented for certifica tion T Entirely upon the known business integrity of the drawer and the general run of bis account with the bank. If the drawer of the check is known to be a man of honor even if his account be not good, the check will be duly certified, because the teller knatet sufficient funds will be deposited to cover tbe certification before the oloieof the day. In short, it is simply the 1 )an ing of the bank's credit to a customer for short time perhaps a few minutes only. The teller, as I said, the one who decides this question, and except in a few special cases (instructions from his superiors), does so entirely upon hisowa knowledge of tbe drawers of checks that may be offered him for certification. So useful is the practice that no bank of New York city would give it op volun tarily, for it is legitimate and safe. If a customer of a bank is a well known busi ness man of meant and of honor, his checks will be certified (or paid) whether he has funds to meet them or not; and customers' expect such favors from banks, or entitled to them, and always will get them, no matter what the system is where it exists. Even in Memphis the praotice prevails to the writer's know ledge. The . certification will be done nder any spstem of banking, whether with a paper or a specie currency. For, as I said, it js a matter almost en tirely nnconnected with anything but the relations of customers with banks, or of the former's known integrity and means. And inasmuch at a certified cheek is charged to the drawer ' account at once, it wonld seem immaterial whether it be paid or " marked good ;" and such being the case, the practice cannot be de stroyed or stopped eatirely, as it will to all practical purposes exist, as it always has, in some form or other. If the pub lio were more familiar with the workings and machinery of banks, good reasons for many things would be apparent which now seem obscure and only worthy de nunciation. Again yon say: "And we shall probably go on the down grade until we reach a financial convulsion which remits in destruction of paper values. Do yon mean your readers shall think the country is fast going to bankruptcy? If so, yon have appealed to a people (i. e , your renders) who find themselves much better off this year than last money plentier with them nnd the necessities of life cheaper. I do not think they can agree with yon, for their experience is the reverse. What they receive for money is better than it ever was, buys them more, and they nave more of it. Why T Because they have raised out of the ground more than their necessities required, and they have a sur plus. And not because money is ot rags or of metal, plenty or scarce, or becau-e the system is national, or mate or pri vate. Tbe people of the North went on crosDerous: the people o, tea Sonts sn so, and the East (you always say) is fat tening, and what more does one want to show him that the country is not going toward bankruptcy T Tbe earnings of the country tor one year would pay toe great debt twice. "The sooner a amash up comes the better." No, sir I The sooner we all arerfc ; all do what we can to earn our bread ; the sooner wa realise that honesty is the best policy for nations as well as individuals, and practice the rule.the sooner we will reduce our burdens and taxes. Let us not so much horrah for a general smash-up as each of ui to make our condition better each year as we can, and the terrible catachasm will never come. Do you not think, Mr. Editor, that you owe a little to the good of the people T And wonld it not be better that tbe peo ple think their condition ia not so bad after all, inasmuch as their txperience shows that it is not T . If it were tro that our currency was gradually becoming worthless, and the nation and individuals already grasping at straws to save tbem from the inevitable (T) deluge of bank ruptcy, none would sooner demand a change than I. But I cannot eee tbe dangers that are so pnieot to you (and to tbe best of mv ability I endeavor to see the truth.) News from all parts of the country does not show th sad result to be near in the future or there at all But it seems to me tbe very reverse is there, and solvency, it we persist in the course of the past three years, will be our fortaoe before long. If experience teaches ns anything, it teaches you as well as me tkat this couctry is mush better off than four years ago or thre yeertv It must then, ti necessi tate ret, be on the right path. If a have this tremendous mill-stone on oar necks we could aot breath as well as th preseot eond tien of tbe country shows we do. That th people think riehtly is very important, for tbe qaesuons ef carresry or its eolvacy or value depends some what on that; and it would eena the cfhfy of all to aid ia estab'i.bit.f faith and creJit, for, Mr. Editor, yoa lei ibis large cctry is aot crippled by its pre- , sent deb beyoad ill power to recuper FOR THE HD J.

Nothing is to be gained by tamely submitting to imag inary evils, or fearing they will overtake ns. Look them square in the face; and above all, don't let a few big words scare ns (they are usually harmless when un derstood), and we shall certainly find, Mr. Editor, that you are no prophet a realization that you devoutly wish, I am sure; as it is certain it is believed by a Bac Omega. Lynch Law. Tbe tragedy at New Albany, which is givtr. to the readers of the Courier-Jur-nal in the very complete and graphic narrative of our reporters, was not a rebel outrage as we are thankful to know. Unfortunately for tbe Radical newspa pers, it did not even occur in Kentucky, but on tbe otbpr side of the river, in " God's country," where the Ku-Klux Elan exists only in a mild form as yet. Perhaps it will be admissible for tbe Radicals to look to this ; for, in order to sustain the purpose and unity of their crusade against the Democratic party, it will be necessary to have a lodge of Ku Klux conveniently situated in all of the Northern States. Otherwise, as mobs are occasional and murders common, Deople will presently distrust their ex elusive belonging and begin to ascribe tbem to other influences than those of treason, which Appears to have had little to do with the hanging of the Seymour outlaws. Tbev were certutnly desperate men. Tbey had endangered the peace of society, rerbaps tbey deserved to bang. But bow about the mode of procedure ? This is the question ; and we do not hesi tate to condemn it as we shouloVdo if il had occurred elsewhere. We are die nosed to SDeak of it with a decree moderation, because it occurred in the North, and not in the South. It is our desire to practice what we preach, and to be just in all things. A few days ago we published an article from tbe New Albany Commercial in veighing against wbat that paper called the " Barbarism of Kentucky. It was a mOBt calumnious article, as our readers remember. . Suppose, taking this present anair as our text, we should descant upon the "barbarism of Indiana," for nothing Quite so bad bag occurred in Kentucky wbat would be said of our good sense and good feeling? In its reply to our strictures the Commercial fell into a rage of petulent personality. It lost sight of the Courier-Journal which speaks for itself and for its class, and is conbned in its expressions to no private feeling or interest to assail its individual writers, exsoriating one article at the expense of another, which it extolled. We are not in the habit of referring to such triviali ties, but tbe ce in point illustrates tbe unfairness of Radical criticism in gene ral; for the article which aroused tbe Commercial's anger happened to be written bv one who was born and reared in New England, while the article which it copied and praised ao highly was writ ten by the party whom it went out ot its way to assail as a rebel, so it goes; and all the bad blood and all the mtoler ance is laid at the door of Southern men To-day there ia more- liberality in the South than is to be tound at the aorta. Tbe object of Radical partisans is to de stroytbis; for they live off the passions of tbe North. Hence tbe pertinacious and indiscriminate abuse of rebels and traitors." . Will fair-minded and candid people who vote tbe Bepublican ticket never be able to see, if not in reason and human nature, at least in the play of current events, the injustice they ere doing the people of the South? Will they never learn that there is as much violence in one part of the country as in the other, and of the same description? Suppose this Indiana business had occurred in Kentucky, would it not be heralded far and wide by the Rodical press as tbe work of the Ku-Klux K!an ? Would we not have an outcry for special acts of Congress and more troops, and bitter de nunciations of rebels ? Bad Hester Yaughaa been convicted in Alabama it would be called tbe proscription of an nnforlunate loyal woman. Had Andrews been acquitted in Mississippi it would be called the release ot a murderer by tbe rebels. But here a troop of men. armed and masked, visit a Northern jail, shoot the sheriff', overpower the guard, se'is four of tbe prisooers, bang them and dis appear; and wa snail near ot it as little as possible, so far as tbe Radical press is concerned. Is this just or reasonable? Cbn'r-ora . Farms ia Alabama. Com miksioner Wilson, of the General Land Office, is ia receipt of returns showing that during a part of the month of October one hundred and twenty-five farms, embracing 18,627 acres, wre added to tbe productive area of tbe State of Alabama, by entries at la local office at Montgomerv, under the homestead act of Jane 21, 1809. Unfortunately we have no means by which w caa obtain any statistics in this State showing tbe increase of populatioa and laods brought aader cUtt.atioa ia lb several coaaties. buck information would be of mack vain aofl much gene ral interest, and w wonld be very thank ful to tbe Siat and county assessor, or any other gentlesnea wbo will furnish such informalioo, eve approx malely correct, ia rCirJ m their respective con a lies dlresto Stirs, AFlxtdFact. It is stated that the Fourteenth amend ment is now valid to all intents and pur poses as a part of the Constitution of the Uoited States. Taking this to be so for the sake of argument, tbe fact otherwise not being admitted, it follows that no person is otherwise punishable fur trea son than by inability to " bold any office, civil or military, onder the United States, or under any State," said person having previously taken an nath to support the Constitution of tbe United States. This is tbe argument as made in substance by counsel for defense in the late argument in tbe Davis case. Prior to the aonoonced incorporation therein of tbe Fourteenth amendment, tbe Constitution of the Uoited States provided that " Congress shall have the power to declare tbe pun ishment ef treason (Art. 3, sec. 3, par. 2)," said treason being defined as " levying war against tbem these Uoited States, or io adhering to tneir enemies, giving them aid aod comfort." Tbe Fourteenth amendment being incorpo rated in the Constitution, and thereby being, to extant of its scope, the Consti tution, it follows that tbe original "power to declare the punishment of treason" has been taken away from Congress, or the legislating body, and put io tbe Constitution, or supreme law, of t!ie tepublic, the third section of said announced amendment thus reading: Sec. 3. No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President, or hold any office, civil or military, onder tbe Uoited States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath as a mem her of Congress, or as an officer of the United states, or as a memberot any State Legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the Uoited States, shall have engaged io insurrection or re bellien against the game, or given aid and comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may, by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability, Here it will be seen that Congress can not impose tbe disability or punishment for treason, but may relieve tberetrom, The only point left is whether such disa bility as above mentioned is a punish ment" in tbe eye of tbe Constitution and that it is is shown in Art I., Sec. 3, par. 1 tolerably familiar from its fre- ouent quotation in tbe impeachment fiasco where it is declared that Judg ment in casea ui impuacutneub bijiiii uu extend further than to removal from office and diiaualiAcation to hold or en joy any office of honor, trust, or profit under the unuca estates Alas for loil law. Tbe saints have so worked it that, if the fourteenth amend ment be adopted, it is impossible to punish evon Mr. Jefferson Davis by worse penalty than ' a disqualification which a Congressional two-thirds vote may at any time remove.
