R0BIN805 CRUSOE'S MONEY.
Hon. David A. Welts, late United States
Special Commissioner of Revenue, has re
cently published a treatise on money en
titled " Robinson Crusoe's Money; or the
Remarkable Financial Fortunes and Misfor
tunes of a Remote Island Community." It is
illustrated by Naat and published by Harper
& Brothers. For the pl asnre of an early in
spection of the work, onr thanks are due to
Eyrioh, of 130 Canal street.
The book deserves something more than the
brief mention to which crowded colamns usu
ally limit us in our commente on books and
authors. It is not a work that can be read
without thought, or when read be easily for
gotten.
Robinson Crusoe, some time after his ship
wreck, is related in the popular version of the
immortal story to have found three bags of
gold and silver among the shattered timbers
of the luckless ship that broke np on the reefs
of Juan Fernandez. Hi3 biographer relates
that he did not value all this coin as much as
a jack-knife or sixpence worth of garden
seeds, or a few tobaooo pipes. It is on this
suggestion that the anther has constructed an
ingenious and instructive allegory, in which
»redeveloped the primitive occasions for
money, and ihe successive steps in a natural
progress from savage barter to the use of a
true measure of values.
When Crusoe was alone on his island
money was neither useful nor valuable. H9
was j lined hy Friday and Friday's father, but
this accession called for no exchanges and
required no money. Then came Will Atkins
and other English sailors, ' and the little
colony ceased to be one family. A division
of labor resulted iu a variety of fabrics
What each produced wa3 needed by the rest;
hence arose the idea of value and the expe
dient of exchange or barter. But in barter
many obstacles were encountered. The
hungry tailor could not sell his coat for bread ;
the baker wanted grain, but the farmer did
not want bread; the mason wanted the coat,
but had nothing to give in exchange for it
but a chimney; there was no just standard of
valde, no price to anything. So that when
two met who desired to exohange products,
neither knew how much he opght to give to
the other. Another trouble was in being
obliged to take the total exchangeable pro
ceeds of any single article in one commodity
only, regardless of the amount desired.
Coal was discovered, and a man who was
employed in loading a vessel with it was paid
for a day's work a loa of coaL He was
obliged to buy his supper and lodging with »
wheelbarrow load of coal trundled around
from door to door on'it he found an islander
in want of coal and willing to feed andsheltet
him in exchange. Similar inoonvenience re
sulted to butchers, bakers, blacksmiths and
carpenters.
This trouble led Crusoe and his friends to
the invention of sc ms intermediate object, by
agreement exchangeable for every other pro
dnot at a rate fixed upon.
To avoid imposition from the shrewd, the
idle and the unscrupulous, it was necessary
to select an intermediate of exchange that
had real vaine. No intrinsically worthless
commodity would meet their requirements.
They knew "that nothing can be reliable and
good money under all circumstances which
does not of itself possess the fall amount of
the valuâ which it professes on its face to
possess.''
So at first they agreed to nse a scarce and
pretty little shell much in vogue amongst the
women of the island for personal adornment
This answered the purpose until some lucky
fellows found on a distant isltnd a vast quan
tity of these little shells, called cpwrles. The
scamps kept their secret ; carried home the
money shells by boat loads, and spent their
money lavishly. Cowries became plentiful ;
prices advanced rapidly ; everybody felt as if
getting richer because his possessions brought
more money. It was » season of wonderful
prosperty, because money was plenty. But
in time other fellows found the cowry island,
and brought home such a quantity of shells
as to make one bushel of wheat cost a four
hor&e wagon load of money. The importers
of shells were found to be the owners of most
of the property on the island, and were
always spoken of respectfully as "shrewd
financiers. ''
Next was tried a money of beads, iu de
mand as ornaments, «mall and durable; but
the use of beads ceased to be fashionable and
the beads themselves became worthless.
Their use as money therefore ceased.
Many efforts were made to discover that
valuable commodity which was to serve as
an intermediary in effecting the exchanges of
other commodities. Every trial led to a new
disappointment. The islanders found that
much loss resulted from the want of a mea
sure of values that should be without change.
At length accident led to a solution of their
difficulty. "A man, walking in a ravine one
day, picked up a small bright mass of shin
ing metal." AUraoted by its lastre and
beauty he carried it home to his wife who
hung it about her neck as an ornament
Other women wanted it and It was diligently
sought for. Its remarkable malleability and
duotility were soon discovered. Its lus
tra was found to be indestructible, ' it
was easily divisible and always uni
form in fineness and value, weight for
weight, whether in large or small pieces.
A desire became general and eager to possess
this metal, the type and emblem of " purity,
beauty, durability and worth." Thus coveted
it became exchangeable for every other com.
modity and " acquired spontaneously a Uni
versal purchasing power, and from that mo
ment became money."
The manner in which this gold was sought,
its over-production and the consequences, tbe
equilibrium, which exactly poised supply
against demand, its remarkable fitness as a
measure of value, the discovery of its inher
ent, inseparable, perpetual and ubiquitous
purchasing powers, the primitive method of
carrying it about the person in dust, scales
and nuggets as originally found, or hammers^
into lumps and ban, and the final discovery
of the bags of gold despised by Crusoe, are
related in a sprightly and impressive style.
The islanden soon learned the utility of
coined or stamped gold. They soon discov
ered that it was not necessary ter carry the
gold from one end of the island to the other,
bat that the object could easily be effected by
a few words written on slips of paper. They
fonnd ont that an order fox gold was as good
as gold when the order-was oertain to be paid
on demand. They learned that gold deposited
anywhere on the island with a responsible per
son was available everywhere for purchase
without the trouble or risk of transportation.
They learned that they could put their gold into
a common treasury protected by the govern
ment, and take for it tickets for gold, which
answered all the purpose in buying of the
actual gold. Hence arose gold banks and a
system of "gold bank oreditB."
This leads up to the " war with the canni
bals," which came upon the islauders, and in
which their Governois had need of a great
deal more money or gold than they could
command; therefore they were obliged to
issue slips of paper, on which were written
promises to pay gold iu certain specified
amounts, for commodities which they were
obliged to take and use to carry oa the war.
But these paper promises became the repre
sentatives of a debt to be paid, and not of
capital accumulated. Ydt they served as
money by being made a medium between pro
ducer and consumer.
From Una point to the close the interest for
the student of the philosophy of money in
creases continually. Oar space forbids us to
follow the history of the islauders through
their long experience of the uses and abuses
of a paper representative of money, nr to
quote the financial maxims scattered through
the work. Long after the close of their war
with the cannibals they cintinued to suffer
from the evils entailed upon them by tbe
floods of promises to pay money which they
did not possess and could not acquire. They
found their irredeemable paper promises in
use as money, while representing no com
modity or metal or valuable whatsoever on
deposit, but standing rather for the debts
which the island owed for the property de
stroyed, in the late war with the cannibals.
This treatise on ourrency borrows interest
for tbe many rather than strength for the
thinker from the tissue of allegorical fancy iu
whioh it is invested ; yet the garment of
fiction and distorted fable makes its impres
sions more distinct and ifs theories better
understood.
I
AN URGENT BE0ESSI Y AND DUTY.
»ration of a do
it- is necessary
that the people whose suAistence depends
To begin the work of
dining community and
on the success of such
boldlv in the face the obsti
must be conquered and mrmounted, and
then set to work to com pa
ork should look
es and foes that
,em with energy
and in a spirit of self saei ee. This is not
only a duty of manhood, ut of sound and
wise policy.
The performance ot this duty was never
more urgent on a people ttmn it is now on the
citizens of New Orleans ft give their whole
energy and devote their reamrees to the erad
ication of the causes of top present lamenta
ble depression and declinM of our city. The
most ordinary sagacity pefceives and detects
the main source of our prisent troubles and
despondency. Tnat causa lis the withdrawal
of the most valuable am) increasing trade
which in its infancy we ftrjayed and con
trolled, but which in its Maturity and large
development has been dftwn away from us
by the superior enterprise if other cam muni
ties. This is the explanation of the great de
cline in our business and values. Whilst we
have been talking and quarreling over the
various schemes to secure railroad connection
with Northwest Louisiana, with Texas and
West Arkansas, St. Louif has acted with
promptitude, vigor and ' large liberality,
and pushed her railways. far into the in
terior of the great empife embraced with
in the circuit designated, and thus divert
ed to herself the tradi and travel that
naturally tend to this city, but meets the
obstruction of a great gap between the center
of this trade and the navigable waters of the
Red River, upon whioh New Orleans has
entirely relied hitherto for communications
with thiq region.
This diversion must be a fixed and increas
ing fact and disaster to our city until this
gap is ' filled. H >w oan this be done is now
the great absorbing question which should
occupy tbe thoughts of all persons inter
ested in the welfare of our city ?
There is a prompt answer to this question.
The only practicable and feasible plan now
before the people, which is being prosecute^
in the mode that will insure success and our
.control thereof, is that of the New Orleans
Pacific.
It would be Irrelevant and unprofitable to
discuss what has already been exhausted—
whether the other pians are not superior.
Suffice it to say that those plans have been
virtually abandoned. If not dead, they are
wrapped in a profound slumber or paralyzed
by legal involvements; whereas the New Or
leans Pacific is alive and in active operation,
pushing forward its work with the utmost
energy, and on a system that conforms to the
views and interests of our people.
The plan is one which can be executed
with onr own means witnoat seriously bur
dening our people. Oan be executed too in
a brief period. It is not of the gigantic
character which alarms and AUcour ages our
limited enterprise and rtetrifted Ifeeans and
compels us to throw ourselves Cato the danger
ous embrace of foreign capiUSsts and bond
speculators. It is not a plan which threatens
disaster and failure from its too great magni
tude aud costliness. It is, indeed, the juste
millieu, which all prudent aud wise men
in these days must adopt in all their schemes
and enterprises. The plan contemplates a
railway junction of the center of the railwAy
system of Texas, with the navigable waters
of Rßd River.
It is the plan of a bridge across the gap '
which diverts the trade of this region to St.
Louis. Its immediate t fleet will be to arrest
and prevent that diversion. It secures, too,
an early connection with the eastern terminus
of the Southern Pacific, which is gradually
wending its way to Mexico and the Pacific
shore. This road from Alexandria to
Marshall is within the capacity of onr
people—of their means, without serious
sacrifices and burdens. It is already
in course of rapid prosecution. Much
has been done with only the voluntary oon
uibutiens of our citizens. Nearly a fourth of
the bed has been laid on the line to the Texas
frontier, where it is to be tauen up
and extended by the people of Mar
shall. The further prosecution and com
pletion of the road requires further means
which can only be obtained trom our own
people. It would be a grave departure from
the policy of the managers to look to any
other source for these means. Will these
means be forthcoming ? Of coarse it would
be preferable that they should be voluntarily
contributed. Eat what if such voluntary
contributions are insufficient, aud tbe road
is stopped, as th.9 Chattanooga or New Orleans
and Texas now is, at or near Bayou Goula,
will tbe property holders and tax-payers re
gard as unwise and oppressive the small tax
it is proposed to levy to render the comple
tion of the road a certainty ? especially when
that tax is placed as au investment in the
stock of a company which must realize
large earnings oa the enormous badness that
must be done on this road.
THE ASTRONOMICAL USfiS OF BLIND
BOYS.
It has long been the grief of astronomers
and opticians that there is a necessary limit
to the improvement of the telescope. For
reasons not necessary to elaborate, it is ad'
mitted that thfc limit has nearly, if not quite,
been reached. Eosse's great telescope doe 8
about all that the science of the optician is
capable of accomplishing in the way of light
gathering power, oombined with definiteness
and distinctness of image; but even that teles
cope makes nothing more out of the nearest
fixed star than a point of light, and does noj
bring the moon nearer than, say sixty miles.
But at sixty miles the Lunarians, if such
creatures there be, would bq invisible to human
eye-sight. It is sad to know that telescopes
will never reveal them to us—that by scien
tific agencies we shall never be able to ex
amine the condition and investigate, the
habits of those beings who might, if
brought within the range of our scrutiny, be
made so interesting to ns. As a sort of
consolation for this deprivation, astronomers
have invented the theory that in consequence
of certain trifling deficiencies, such as a total
absence of air and water, life can not exist on
the moon. They are careful, however, to as
sure us that they mean life as known to us, for
it would clearly be illogioal to assert that some
form of life, entirely unknown to us, might
not exist on our satellite. Bectuse we need
water for purposes of navigation, to say noth
ing of washing and a little drinking, it does
not follow that the Lunarians may not get
along very comfortably without ships, or
steamboats, or that they may not constitute a
great total abstinenoe society in regard to
water as well as. oock-tails. However this
may be, it is gratifying to know that we shall
not be for long without the means for solving
these important problems. Aooording to the
San Francisco Morning Call nature has come to
our relief by famishing a blind boy who fulfills
all the conditions desired in the long-desired
but perpetually delayed telescope. This re
markable juvenile phenomenon is nine years
of age, and, up to the time when his wonder
ful gift of presbyopia was developed, was sup
posed by his parents to be completely blind.
On the 12th of Deoember last—it is well to be
accurate in matters of such importance—the
boy cried aloud, and wa3 found by his fond
and astonished progenitors sitting up in bed
aud gazing intently at tbe moon. The
amazing fact then became manifest that,
although the boy was unable to see anything
on the earth, he could plainly see everything
that was going on in the moon. He supposed
that luminary to be about 200 feet distant;
though how a blind boy was able to make any
estimate whatever of distance we are not in
formed. Omitting this trifling discrepancy in
the report, we may say that, greatly
to the relief of the fond parents,
whose faith in the man-in-the-moon
was thQ3 immediately restored, and
much to the astonishment of the wise men of
the West, who were incontinently called in,
the boy at onoe overturned the theory of
lunar uninhabitability. He declared that he
saw "things" moving about on the surface of
the moon, rolling over mountain tops, and
skipping with amazing velocity across pro
found vaileys. Tnese "things" were evident
ly living beings. They were when fall-grown
shaped like chariot wheels, and their mode of
locomotion was a rapid revolution on what
might be'called a ventral hub. The young
ones were formed like an Orange or pumpkin,
only arriving at the dignity of hubs and
spokes on reaohing, let us say, the age of pu
berty. Iu fact, the mature Lunarian seems to
be a gigantic rotifer, capable of loco
motion at an enormously rapid rate,
and pass his existence in playful
revolution around his airless and waterless
abode. The discovery of this remarkable
race of beings is calculated to make us dis
contented with a planet like ours, which re
quires that we should have legs aud arms
and lungs to support our sluggish existence,
and to make us envious of oreatures who
are gifted with spokes and formed like
wheels, so that they can roll around their
world without let or hindrance.
Space does not permit us to recite the far
ther discoveries made by the blind boy under
the able direction of the California savons, but
it is necessary to explain the strange and
anomolons feature of his organization hy
which he was able to establish the existence
of the lunar rotifeiæ and to triumph OTer
the accepted theories of scientific men.
It seems that the boy in question was only
provisionally blind—that is to say that he
could see nothing ou this earth, beoause
nothing on this earth is far enough away. He
is gifted with presbyopia in an enormously
aggravated form, in fact—tbe focus of his eye
is situate at a point 240,000 miles distant,
which by a onrious and happy coincidence,
is very nearly the mean distance of the moon.
Hence, when, for the first time, his eyes
rested on that luminary, he immediately saw
things which he had never seen before, and
which nobody will ever see again, unless na
ture should kindly increase the supply of
blind boya for the benefit of science aud the
development of astronomical knowledge. In
such a case we may expect that big tele
scopes will be abandoned, and that the cul
tivation of presbyopic babies will become an
important branch of human indus.ry.
KEEP THE PATH.
The Democratic Repre entatives iu Con
gress must have been cogniz mt of the fact
that every speoies of trickery, every phase'ol
strategy and an unlimited amount of impu
dence would characterize the condact of their
Rtdioal opponents in order to avert the ex
posures which investigation would bring
abont, or to partly nullify their eff et. If
retrenchment was* inaugurated, the Demo
crats must have known that the Radicals
would, under various guiaes-of expediency or
policy, contest every iuoh of ground in the
onward march of the reformers; ift teps were
taken to unearth fraud and villainies it was
to be c xpected that the cohorts of the Ad -
ministration would use every means at
their command to ai vert the «curse of
inquiry or to throw discredit upon
the motives of the Democraotic party in their
march of investigation. The representatives
of reform must have well calculated all these
obstacles before they began their good work ;
they must have known thatevery opportunity,
however Blight, whioh offered for misrepre
sentation aud calumny would be seized with
avidity by those whose interest it was .to
weaken the force of the exposures safe to
come about. When Marsh left for Canada,
the cry was raised immediately that the
Democrats feared he would tell too much,
and specious arguments were offered to sub
stantiate this position. Bat all in good time
the truth was discovered, and the prompt no
tion of the Democrats in paving Marsh to re
turn as soon as the Administration's threat
was revoked, and their speedy recalling him
before the Clymer committee evidenced their
sincere desire to hear all he had to say.
The Democrats must not allow themselve i
tq be drawn aside from the straight oou rse
they have mapped ou f , even though at tim es
the maneuvers of their antagonists may ap
pear to be verging on success, aud even
though there may seem to be an incredulous
whispering of the sincerity of their motives.
All these things must be expected; but let
them remember that the fnture of the party
depends upon their oondoot now. As every
new exposure is made, the houest people of
th9 nation will not hesitate to award the m
their just meed of applauäe, and the slurs
thrown upon their mctive3 by their oppo
nents will gradually display their weakness.
SPRING MEETING OF THE LOUISIANA
JOCKEY CLUB.
Long era this th,e turfites of our city have
been on the tip-toe of excitement over tbe ap
proaching Spring Meeting, and the exciting
events presented by the olub on its pro
gramme of contests. The remunerative
stakes offered, such as the Pickwick and
Louisiana have already drawn hither «orne
of the most notable stables of the country.
A careful scrutiny of the list of colts, either
here or en route, satisfied ns that the approach
ing meeting will be one ot the most success
ful of the Louisiana Jockey Club.
On Satarday, April 15, we have offered:
First, a hurdle race of two miles, over eight
hurdles; seoond, the Pickwick Stakes, with
fourteen entries, mile heats.
The other days of the week are filled with
as interesting events as the above; and if the
meeting proves not the crowning success of
the Club, then we miss our guess.
Tbe track is in a superior condition for
rdnning, the new improvements in drainage
having proved moBt effectual in removing
the water from the grounds.
A New Fibm.— We observe by a notice,
which will be found in another place, that
the old firm of'Wallace & Co. has been dis

A new firm has been orginizei under the
style and name of Wallace, Cary A Co.,
Messrs. David Wallace, George W. Cary and
James Wallace being the partners of the same.
These gentlemen were connected with the
old house and are men of great experience,
tack, ability and popularity. They will carry
on the wholesale dry goods business, and
have established themselves at the old stand,
corner ot Common and Magazine streets,
where they will keep constantly on hand a

ANOTHER SPLENDID OPPORTUNITY.
The rigid 'impartiality and fairness with
whioh the First Grand Golden Drawing of the
Louisiana State Lottery Company was con
ducted has borne its legitimate fruit, and we
are assured by the management that its suc
cess abroad has been unprecedented in the
history of all similar institutions. Applica
tions for agencies have poured in so fast that
it is now established in every prominent
locality from-New England to the Gulf, and
from the Atlantic to the Pacific coast.
Of course the sale of tickets up to the
■ present time has been proportionately large,
already demonatrating the seoond of this
splendid end liberal series a complete and ab
solute success. The management of this in
stitution has been actuated by wise and laud
ablé motives in* making it, under this new
system, » souroe of benefit to the city, in
atinoting large rams of money from abroad,
instead of confining its operations, as hereto
fore, to the home looality.
Tbe next drawing, like its predecessor*
will be eondneted npon the same plan, with
out either sealing or postponement. Ml its
prizes will be'plaqed in the wheel, and all will
be paid in full in gold coin aud without dis
count No better or fairer opportunity wan
ever offered testing individual luck. A trifle
thus invested may win a splendid fortune. A
portion of the $50,000 prize was ciptured ia
this oily at the last drawing, aud that in the
face ot the aala of only a limited number of
tickets.
The prescrit great increase in ticket sale*
abroad, by multiplying the chances, almost
gives positive aeenranee that all the big prizes,
including the $100,000 eapital, will be drawn
this time, and everybody should hasten to get
within the radius of the impending Golde»
Shower. • _
