Their Absolute Security.--Nearly all
hetivg credits, aro now based on Gov

theni as the very best and strongest
investment they can make. If it were
possible to contemplate the financial
failure of the Government ; no bank
would be any safer. If money is loan
ed on individual notes or bond and
mortgage, it will be payable in tho
same currency as the Government pays
with, and no butter. The Government
never has failed to meet its engage

mortgage 'upon the whole property of
the country. While other stocks fluc
tuate from ten to fifty, or oven a great

is fixed and reliable, beyond all other
securities; for while a thousand specu

they are never below par, and are often
Its Liberal interest.—Tho general
rate of interest is six per cent, payable
annually. This is seven and three
tenths, payable semi-anuually. If you
lend on mortgage, there must be a
searching of titles, lawyers' fees, stamp
duties and delays, and you will finally
have returned, to you only the same
kind of money yOu would receive from
the Government, and less of it. If you
incest in this loan, you have no trou
ble. Any hank or banker will obtain
it for 'you without charge. To each
note or bond are affixed'five "coupons"
or interest tickets, duo at the expiration
of each successive half-year. The hold
er of a note has simply to cut off one
of these coupons, present it to the
nearest bank or Government Agency,
and receive his interest; the note it
self need not bo presented at all. Or
a coupon thus payable will everywhere
be equivalent, when duo, to money. If
you wish to borrow .ninety cents on
the dollar upon the notes, you have
the highest security in the market to
do it with. If you wish to sell, it will
bring within a fraction of cost and in

gold-bearing bond. At the expiration
of three years a holder of the notes of
.the 7.30 Loan has tho op tion accept
payment in full - or of funding his
-.notes in a six per cent gold-interest
'bond, the principal payable in not loss
- than five, 'nor more than twenty years
;from its dato, as the Governinent may
%led. These bonds are held at such a
premium as to make this privilege now
worth two or three per cent: per an
hum, and adds so much to the interest.
Notes of the same class, issued three
years ago, are now selling at a rate
that hilly proves the correctness of this
Its Exemption from State or 11funicipa
Taxation.—But aside from all the ad
vantages we have enumerated, a spe

'On the average this exemption is worth

parts of the country.
It is a .Arational Savings Bank.—
While this loan presents great advan
tages to large capitalists, it offers spe
cial inducements to those who wish to
make a safe and profitable investment
of small savings. It is in every way
the best Savings' Bank; for every in
stitution of this kind must somehow
invest its deposits profitably in order
to pay interest and expense. They
will invest largely in this loan, as the
best investment. But from the gross
interest which they receive, they must
deduct largely for the expenses of the
Bank. Their usual rate of interest al
lowed to depositors is 5 percent. upon
-'sums over $5OO. The person who in
vests-.directly with Government will
. _receive almost 50 per cent more. Thus
the man who deposits $lOOO in a pri
lateßavings' Bank receives 50 dollars a
. Year interest; ; if he deposits the same
sum in this National Savings' Bank be
- receives - 73' dollars. 'For those who

been instructive to capitalists: it has
taught them that Government Stocks
are the only stable investment. While

they have been as firm as W-rock

so regarded. To learn further advan

to six hundred, principally wounded,
were lost. The rebels .suffered with

General Rhett returned an answer by
no means gracious, but still satisfac-,
tory. lie was then conducted by our
scouts through the rebel pickets and
and into our own lines: Captain Mac
beth, of the South Carolina Artillery,
and a son of Mayor Mcbeth, of Charles
ton, was mortally wounded in the fight.
Pursuant to this spirited fight the
right wing moved across the South
river and up toward Bentonville, while
the left wing made a crossing farther
up, pursued the enemy retiring by
Bentonville toward Smithfield,. and
reached Beaver Dam creek, one of the
many small tributaries of the Neuse.
On the 19th the enemy opened with
the left wing near Hannah's creek, the
battle taking place in the angle form
ed by this creek with the Neuse river,
between which streams the Benton
ville road curved inward to the rear
of our forces.
It was in moving up this road that
the 14th and 20th Corps met the ene
my posted between two streams, in
Some, and anxious, as usual, to crush
ono wing of the army before tho other
could come to its support. The right
wing reached the vicinity of the fight
on Monday, the 20th, and Gen Efazon's
division, employed to guard the trains;
marched up and filled the gap between
the two wings. Tho fierce and pre-'
cipitato charges of the rebels were gal.
lantly met add repeatedly driven hack
by divisions of the 14th and 20th Corps,
which, for the time, withstood the
shock of Johnston's entire army: The
right wing came promptly to aid on
Monday, and the rebels were driven
•out of the angle streams which they
occupied, to retire upon Smithfield.
Kilpatrick's cavalry operated with ex
cellent service, during the battle, upon
the right flank of the left wing..
Several brilliant exploits were per
formed in this action. The 46th Ohio
armed with Simneor repeating rifles,
made a spendid charge, and drove an
entire brigade of the enemy from its
earthworks, but for I:varit of immorliste
support were unable to hold them. In
coming to aid, with the 17th corps, on
Monday, General Joseph MoWer's di
vision made another gallant charge,
and captured several lines of works.-
The troops on either side were fre
quently without shoes. In default of
hats ' Many of Our soldiers wore caps
and bonnets, picked tip on the march,
and charged across the briar-fields
with bare feet.
The rebels were 50,000 strong. Our
loss will not reach beyond 2,000. Tbat
of the rebels is fully as large. Johnston
evacuated his position on Monday
night, and withdrew to Smithfield, a
movement determined and accelerated
by a movement of the 17th corps upon
his flank. General Sherman was in
Goldsboro to day, and his army, it
may be presumed, will thereabout
await equipment. _ _
