The United State Caa Carry ft Bigger'
.. War Debt than England.
How England carried her war debt or
1816, and how the grew rich under ill
burdens, and richer and richer, tl'l she is
richest oountry in' the Old World, all men
know. , That debt, inscribed in her Exohe
quer Books, was nominally 916,000,000.
The New World has forgotten that, In the
twenty-two years of her war with Franoe,
England expended upon her armies, her
navy and continental subf idiestvi? 1 ,000,
000, derived from' taxation. 1 Her war debt
should, of course, be charged with thi
amount, and then it would have tood the
stupendous column in national finance of
$5,387,000,000 more than three times as
vast as our own war debt Just at the end
of the rebellion. '. . 1
In 1816, one year after the peace treaty
of Paris, when the British debt had attain
ed its maximum, the population of Great
Britain was 10,000,000. In 1864, the
population of the loyal States of Amerioa
was 25,000,000. In 1864 the value of the
property of Gieat Britain Wat estimated at
$10,450,000,000. The property of the
loyal States in that year was estimated at
$13,895,000,000. That year's products In
Great Britain amounted to $1,667,000,000.
Those ol the loyal States for the same year
were $3,500,000,000. This comparison
gives us Americans the advantage over our
pushing cousins of England of 40 per cent,
in population, 28 per oent. in property, and
110 per cent, in annual products. "Good
as British consols," eh f That financial
figure of speech is coming to be modified
somewhat. The world will by-and-by say
"As good as United States bonds,"
Another satisfactory little contrast. The
British Ministry was obliged to resort im
mensely to compulsory contributions, from
the people of Great Britain to oarry on the
struggle against ihe French. , Sixty-three

rived from tax alien, Regard the voluntary
contributions of. the Americans to their

THE SULTANA DISASTER
A letter in tho Tribuni from Memphis
lenn., dated Dlay 14th, says
Over two weeks have elapsed ainoe the
unprecedented Sultana disaster, yet nearly
every boat from below brings additional
accounts of bodies found and buried. Pas
sengers by the Olive Branoh report the
bodies of three soldiers found floating in the
eddy at the mouth of Big Black River,
which is 4U miles below Vicksburg, and
500 below the scene of the explosion
Yesterday, the body of a woman was dis.
covered lodged in a drift pile, 20 miles be
low the city, by Ihe pioket-boat. She had
ptobably sprang into the river in a pamo as
she haa on only a night dress. Being in
an unrecognizable condition, she was
buried by the marines. I was present this
morning en the bt, JLouis paoket whart-
boat, at the making ont of an estimate ef
number of lives lost. Ihe data from which
tbo estimate was derived are as nearly cor
rect as can ever be procured, and the re
suit shows that no less than l,4ttf human
beings perished. I can think of no marine
disaster or either ancient or modern times
that parallels thi 1 one in point of destruo
tion of life, unless it be that of the Koyal

The war ia virtually over. No sane

Painful as the result may be to the hopes
of many in the South, there is nothing Iri
it to reflect upon Ihe spirit and courage of
the. South as a people. For four long year
the North and South, with a courage un
paralleled in the history ef the world, have
contended against eaoh other in battle with
varying auooess, until at last the South, as
her great and illustrious general remarked
in his farewell address to his army, has
been forced to yield to "overwhelming num-

rail about the causes of the war against his

War has been called a purifier and a civil

Certainly the legitimate use of civilized
warfare is to secure a larger amount of

From this elevated stand-point, as it strikes

Confederacy may now be numbered among
the things of the past, and it is the duty of
every Southern man and woman to apply
themselves, without delay, to meet the ex

possible in that manner best calculated td
promote the interest and happiness of the

R. Mitchell, druggist at this place, was at
supper on Friday evening last, a burglar
entered the window of the back room of
his drug store, and abstracted from his till
and desk about $110. It was quite a dar

store is much frequented by persons in the

But when we see that General Rhett, of
South Carolina, has taken the oath of alle

tne way, was plain Smith until it was
changed to Rhett as reoently as J 83 7,) it
synonymous with all words signuying nul

formerly of the Glasgow Time, has pur
chased the Gazette printing office of Mr.
F. M. Taylor, at Macon, and will com
mence the publication of a new radical pa
per about the first ot July, to be called the
"Macon Times." The Colonel is an old
wheel-horse in tho editorial harness, ia a
ready and vigorous writer, and will give
the people of Maoon a lively and interest
ing paper. Mr, Taylor has purchased the
Times office at Glasgow, and will shortly
commence the publication of the " Howard
Union" in that place. We hope the people
of Howard county will give hint a nearly
support in this enterprise, as notliing'tend
more to the return of peace, order and a
general revivification of good society than
the establishment of well-conduoled news
