A Roman Catholic gentleman died in
England recently. His ion happened
to be in Rome at the time, and with
the Pope when he reoeived the news,
whereupon hi« holiness telegraphed
his benediction to the familj of the
deoeased. Blessing by telegraph is
something new.

than that the owner wants to go out
of town.''

The National Debt.
The plaD proposed and set on
foot by B ennett , of the New York
Herald, for paying ofl' the national
debt by individual subscriptions, is
a big thing if it will only work. We
havH hoard nothing of it very re
cently, but a few weeks since, accord
ing to statement* made in the Herald,
some three millions we think, had
already been subscribed. AfcRUining
#ur national debt to be three thou
sand millions, and that in the procès»
of acquittance therefrom an average
sum of fifty millions per annum (a
huge estimate, by th* by,) could bo
realized in accordance with Mr. B en
nett's plan, a space of threescore
years would suffice to lift this bur
then of debt completely from the
shoulders of the nation. An early
succeeding generation of the genus
" l'onng America" would then start
out unctogged by onerous taxation,
already "booted and spnrred" to
run its race of destiny, and perhaps
(although we earnestly pray not,)
electrify the world by some Utopian
schema of "vaulting ambition," which
"o'erleaping itself," may plungnanew
the country into excesses of mad
dened strife, aufl pile up another tro
mendous debt, eclipsiug if possible,
the present modest one of only three
thousand millions.

It is bardly susceptible of proba
however much its novelty may please
or its success be hoped for. Etna
nating from a source so purely sensa
tional, people are apt to judge of it
in the light of a "nine day's bubble,"
and to rate its feasibility accordingly,
without the trouble of further inves
tigation. But, nevertheless, it may
not be inappropriate to hazard certain
speculations on the bare possibility
of success which might attend a per
Hiatçnt effort to rc i iove the nation 0 f

When we come to consider the
quantities of wealth concentrated in
the hands of the rich Northern mer
chants, banker* and manufacturers,
who, instead of having suffered deso
lation and ruin from the war, have
profited therefrom to a degree of opu
lence hitherto unknown in this coun
try ; we can almost discern in that
source alone,, an inexhaustible Ophir
of riches whence might be drawn, if
patriotic incentives could prompt it,
the aggregate required lor "footing"
thé bills of the nation's indebtedness
inj all their entirety. What a sub
line spectacle it would be to see those
mien of mighty means coine forward
With one accord and put their shoul
ders to the wheel to rid the natiou
of its incubus of debt. Were it nec
essary to enlarge the scale of opera
tions so as to include all, rich as well
«s poor, «ach subscribing to the pa
Jtriotic measure in proportion to his
,ini)ai.ts, the grandeur of the spectacle,
in which a a whole people were par
ticipants, would be unparalleled.
But, while such schemes must re

• The "Hon. J ohn S herman , of

| our national debt, upon the basis off
the present tax laws, will be paid off

And th,s ' remwkß a ««temporary,
; "is reckoning only upon our present

and ^ nladon iu thirt

y^rs ; that hundreds of thousands of
emigrants corns- annually to help us
pay the det. 1 » that we have undevel
oped resources nJmost without a par
allel, this vast debt peases to give
us any concern."
A writer in the St. Louis RepMi
ean lays down the proposition "that
our national debt made permanent
and rightly managed, will be a na
tional blessing," and arguing from
these premises quaintly maintains,
that " the funded debt of the United
States is the addition of three thou
sand millions of dollars to the previ
ously realized wealth of the nation,
it is three thousand millions added
to its available active capital. To
pay this debt would be to extinguish
this capital and U> lose this wealth
would be an inconceivably great na
tional misfortuue."
The proprietary interest in the
finances of the country, now becom
ing so universally diffused among the
people as holders of the "seven-thirty
bonds," is one of the strongest ties
undoubtedly to bind the people to
gether in that unity of feeling which
arises from a community of interest,
and must have a goodly effect upon
the permanence of the restored Union.
This, in substance, is one of the
strong points urged by the writer in
support of his theory, and by a
parity of reasoning, he brings for
ward the significant fact, long since
acknowledged, that British consols
which are held by the English pub
lic as a first-class mortgage upon
all the wealth and resources of tbe
empire, act as a spur to the industry,
capital and enterprise of the peo
ple, cementing them into one great
bond of union, and keeping alive a
spirit of energy and determination to
support and perpetuate the Govern
ment under which they live.
President J ohnson , in a late in
terview with Gen. L ogan , remarked
with reference to our public debt,
"that the finances of the country
were iu a hopeful condition j that
probably it was possible to resume
specie payments immediately, were
it not for the commercial distress it
would create throughout the country
generally. As to the public debt of
the country, he was iu favor of pay
ing it to the last dollar, and would
never countenance any man, party,
sect or measure that even squinted
at repudiation in any form. The
debt was incurred to save the coun
try- It was a legacy of the war be
queathed to us for good or evil. It
was not possible to shirk it. On the
other hand, the great question would
be to make it, if possible, an instru
ment of good, not evil, to the public
generally."
The hopeful view taken by the
President of the country's finances,
tallies with what was publicly stated
by Mr. M c C cixoch , the Secretary
of the Treasury, several weeks since,
and is certainly one of the most en
couraging signs of tlin times.

M issouri C otton .—Mr. C hari.es
F ink , of New Madrid, sends us
some cotton blossoms which were
picked from his field on the 29th
ult., being much earlier than ever
known as far North as that point.
There are a good many plantations
in Southeast Missouri planted in

St. Louis (Mo.) Republican.
T hb I nmates of F oktrrss M on
roe .—John Mitchel is treated very
much in the style of the more im
portant rebs. ITe subsists on Gov
ernment army rations; is closely
guarded, and is not allowed the
wherewithal to manufacture treason
able newspaper articles ; nor is he
furnished with papers or any reading
matter, save the liiblo or any other
prayer-book that he may desire.
John whiles away the weary hours
of his prison life by smoking. He
brought a pipe with him and is al
lowed tobacco. No conversation is
permitted with him, nor does he court
any. Thus far he has shown him
self rather taciturn than otherwise.
Clem. Clay smokes with philo
sophic indifference. He occasionally
addresses a pleasant remark to his
guards. As a prisoner, he has given
very little trouble. From the begin
ning he has subsisted on the army
ration.
Jeff. Davis has fully recovered his
health. He has not yet been re
turned to his diet, the army ration.
His food is prescribed by Doctor
("raven, and is such hb will conduce
most to his health. Since the tone
of his physical health has been re
stored, he too, has taken to puffing
the Indian weed. He uses an ele
gant meerschaum pipe, which he
brought with him into the fortress.
The bowl is wrought in the sem
blance of a turbaned head a la zou
ave. The stem and mouthpiece are
of pure amber. This pipe is doubt
less a relic of the peeudo royalty
that Jeff'. Davis maintained while
presiding over the fortunes of the
ignix J'atuus Confederacy.
As not a word is allowed to be
said to Davis, he speaks very little.
No one is allowed to see him.— For

Philadelphia Inquirer, 22d ult.
C otton and C ompetition .—Those
who speculate on the futare of cot
ton are too apt to ignore or but im
perfectly to recognize the part
which peculiar advantages of soil
and climate played in securing the
supremacy in cottort culture to the
Southern portion uf the United
States. Of the two tonndatioiiH on
which rested Southern ability to
defeat competition iu the growth of
that staple everywhere else one,
black slave labor, lias been shatter
ed. Hereupon some commercialists
seem to think that the whole ques
tion of restoring prosperous cotton
culture in the South depeuds upon
the restoration in substance of the
same labor under a different name.
This labor question is certainly a
matter for very grave consideration ;
but as regards the competition of
the South with other countries in
the prodntion of cotton, it is not an
essential element of calculation.
The abolition of slavery can do
no worse than place the South on
an equality its to labor with other
countries where cotton has been
cultivated without slave labor.—
She still possesses a singular ground
of superiority in point of soil and
climate. This advantage is indes
tructible ; at least political causes
cannot overthrow it. If the war
had tho effect of developing what
seemed a dangerous foreign compe
tition in cotton culture, it has a mo
more fully revealed the fact that
the South, on equal terms, has noth
ing to fear from competition.
It is now placed beyond doubt j
that in none of the competing coun
tries can cotton be produced with
the same facility and certainty and
of as g<od a quality as hi the splen
did cotton belt of the United States, j
lying between 31 and 3ft degrees of
latitude and stretching from the
Atlantic to the borders of the West
ern desert Their inferiority in
point of quality has been especially
manifest.
These facts are enough to show
that, with reasonable energy and
sagacity, American cotton can be
made to recover its empire and to
hold it securely against all compe
titors.— N. O. Bee.
