The Charleston Daily News; established
less than a month ago, and conducted with
undoubted ability, gives some sad details of
the condition of South Carolina. That
State, which was so eager to rush into re
bellion, and which, indeed, actually com
menced it by traitorously striking the first
blow at Fort Sumpter, deservedly suffers
for its misconduct. Its pride has been laid
low, and scarcely the weed of pity is ex
tended to its sufferings. Ilere is the Charles•
ton editor's candid summary of the general
effects of the war in his locality:
of t 15,000, 00 in bank stock, all is 10St. Of
$5,000,00 1 1 bills in circulation, the market value
is not snore than twenty per cent. Of three
insurance companies, neither can continue
business. Of V 20,000,000 in railroads, no divi
dends can be expected. Of five thousand
houses in Charleston, fifteen hundred have
been burned, and others almost irreparably da
maged. Of estates of decedents and minors,
-and of property in litigation, fours:fifths are re
presented by Confederate securities, alid are
therefore valueless. Of our many merchants,
lately of large capital and unblemished credit,
few bare assets to pay the small debts against
them at the beginning of the war. Of the
many large and valuable estates in Beaufort
district and the adjacent islands, all have
been abandoned, and many have been
sold for taxes. of the large eaten estates,
still further from the seaboard, many have
been desolated. Of the cotton on hand at
the beginning and raised during the war
(amounting in value to at least $20,000,000),
the larger portion has been taken or destroy
ed. Of the stock, horses, begs,,etittle, farming
Implements, utensils, and furniture and sil
verware, all...but an inconsiderable amount
have been consumed, destroyed, or taken. Of
the money in the hands of our citizens at the
.eornmencement of the war, or accruing from
-the sale of property, or the practice of pratess
sions. or the payment of debts, all has been
invested' in securities of which nine-tenths
have no possible value. Of the debts uncol
lected, few are expected to be paid. Of the
funds of churches, colleges, charitable institu
tions, and soeietleia, all also, or nearly all,have
been sunk, Of the lands of the State not held
by the Government, little has any market
value. Into this frightful gulf of ruin has also
been swept the value of four hundred thousand
slaves, estimated a few years since at $.200,-
eOOOOO. And thus, therefore, of the $4.00,000000
worth of property in this State in /860, but
little more than $50,000,000 now remains.
Further, we are informed that few are
assured of more than the provisions neces
sary to support them through the winter ;
that many, hitherto of wealth, are not as
sured of that ;> that the soil is uncultured ;
that the colored population are as badly off
.as the whites, and that the seven hundred
thousand people of Sou& Carolina are,
therefore, "perhaps the poorest in the
world." This is acknowledged to be the
legitimate sequence of their acts. We
staked our lives and fortunes on the eon
test," our Charleston brother admits, "and
the extent of our losses proves a sentiment
of perfect devotion to the cause ; and what
ever of merit may consist in that, it es
tablishes no claim to indemnity or com
miseration. These losses were intended
and with no authority to question the in
tentions of the victors, we submit to them
with the calmness and complacency which
a sense of necessity inspires."
Complaint is made of the taxation in the
districts of Charleston burnt in 1861, be
fore the passage of the tax act—much of
which property is alleged to belong to
widows, minors, aged and infirm, and
even to strangers, who had no direct Parti
tipation in the war. This property, we
are told, has yielded nothing since it was
burned, but, on the contrary, has been
charged by the local government ; it can be
Of no use or profit until rented, sold or built
upon, and yet it is eharged at the rates of
assessment before the war, and people in
the utmost destitution must pay accumu
lated taxes upon this property or see it sold.
Complaint is made, too, that property
which was abandoned during the siege is
not now restored. I3ut the law specifically
declares that " all property, real and per
sonal, shall be considered as abandoned
when the lawful owner thereof is absent
therefrom, and engaged in -arms or other
wise in aiding or encouraging the rebel
We do not see how, without violating
the law or repealing it, this positive enact
ment can be rendered imPerative or put into
abeyance. The officers of the Treasury, it
is admitted, unable to restore this property,
have leased it to the original proprietors
upon easy, and, in some instances, on
merely nominal terms. The Government,
we may confidently assume, has no dispo
sition to deal harshly with the people of
south Carolina, however badly that people
conducted themselves during the four awful
years of rebellion. But, we repeat, South
Carolina, in her present suffering, is only
reaping the harvest she then prepared for.
"If we sow the wind," says Holy Writ,
"shall we not reap the whirlwind?" With
as much speed as is consistent with safety,
and likely to consolidate and reconstruct
the Union—to overthrow which South Caro
lina conspired with other States—the Go
vernment will apply and is applying itself
to provide what remedy the circumstances
can demand and its own power can supply.
There is no thought of vengeance, and the
conduct of President .TonnsoN from the
first, has shown that his strong desire is to
temper justice. with mercy in a.very large
.degree, indeed.
A singular circumstance, which properly
should be called a most brutal and unpro
voked murder, has taken place at Bonn, on
the Rhine, the well-known. Prussian uni
versity. It is reported in 'Strasburg and
French papers, and in letters from Rhinish
Prussia. All the accotmts, though some
are more detailed than others, agree on the
main points.
The Queen of England, with her younger
Children, are at Cobrirg, the birth-place of
Prince ALBERT, her late husband. There
had been engaged, as a travelling cook for
Prince ALFRED, who is VICTORIA'S second
son, and was journeying to join her, a
young man, named OTT, a son of a Stras
burg brewer, and, therefore a subject of
France. Resting at Bonn for a day, as also
did the Prince, this OTT 'invited a few of his
own craft to a supper. There were two per
sons belonging to Bonn— SCIBLET, cook of
the principal hotel ; JOSEPH, also a servant
of Prince ALFRED, and unkrtuuate OTT
himself. They were returning home, at
ten o'clock P. IL, when they encountered
some roystering blades—all attired in
student's garb, except one, who wore
a military uniform, Orr's party en
deavored to get out of the way of these
persons, and yield them the pas. But the
gentlemen, would not allow the survitor and
Lis little party to pass on, over to the other
side. HERSCHEL, one of OTT'S friends,
said to the soldier and students, " Gentle
men, let us pass ; we are people of the
place, and we will not fight with you ;"
and they again tried to pass on. The
after said, "Get out of the way, you
boar." Then the students fell- upon the
two poor burgesses with loaded sticks, and
the soldier gave OTT two tremendous sabre
cuts on the head. Not satisfied, however,
with this, he rushed at his victim and
gouged one of his eyes out with the hilt of
his sword. The poor fellow was taken to
the hospital with his eye bang,ing down on
his cheek, and died the next day. A cor
respondent, in a later number of the Europe,'
says: "OTT had not even a cane in his
hand, and was utterly defenceless. He was
taken to the hospital, where his wounds
Were dressed, and he was then able to go
home, but died next day, as is supposed,
from tetanus. The sufferings of OTT were
terrible. His strong constitution combatted
with cleat]; but lock.jaw came on, and he
died in extreme agony."
When OTT was struck clown, he ex
claimed, "They have wounded me; . I
know not why, we neither said or did. any
thing to them." Witnesses formally .de
(dare that there was no motive for the ag
gression. OTT was assassinated when he,
had not even a stickto defend hiniself with;
the students are said to have been nearly
twenty in number, all with loaded sticks,
-When they saw blood flowing they ran
The brutal murderer, who was perform
ing his obligation of a year's military ser
vice, in a cavalry regiment quartered at
Bonn, where he was also a student, is
young Count Eurminuno, nephew of the
P russ i an Minister of the Interior. The
people ofßonn gave his victim a handsome
funeral ; and, on the day it took place, the
titled murderer went off to Berlin, where
he took refuge in his uncle's official real
deuce. Tite general. impreiffion was that
he would get off without any or only a
nominal punishment. It was reported that,
in Queen VicromA's name, a complaint
had been lodged against him before the
Prussian Government, but it was not ex
pected that this would obtain the punish
ment of the criminal, for a man holds his
life in his hand in Prussia, uuless he
belongs to the privileged, noble class,
who. look upon the common people as if
they were " mud-sills." The French jour
nals-have strongly urged the Emperor to
take the matter up, and insist upon the ex
emplary punishment of the murderer (they
would hang him in England even were he
a duke) andliberalpecuniary compensation
to the victim's family. Unless the matter
is taken up in a very firm manner, &rims-
BERG will probably escape all punishment
becausehe is a noble and his uncle one of
the Prussian Ministry. That, strange as it
may appear, has long been the practice in
Prussia. The working-classes there are
worse treated than were the serfs of Russia,
whom AnnxaNDER 11., with true Christian
feeling, has immortalized himself by eman
cipating. The fact, too, that the murdered
man was in the service, if not of England,
at least of an English prince, will not hasten
his punishment, for the highei," classes,
and nearly all the Government employes in
Prussia, have a decided dislike to the Eng
lish, and this though the Crown Prince's
wife is eldest daughter of the Queen of
The Pittsburg Gazelle, in Commenting
upon a recent report of the Government
Director of the Union Pacific Railway,
which is to run west from Omaha through
Colorado and Utah, to Nevada, says :
"The Pacific railway begins at Omaha, in
Nebraska, a city on the Missouri river, extends
westwardly through the fertile region of the
Platte valley, and thence through the rich
(and yet und.eveloped) mineral regions of the
great West to the borders of California,
where it conneetewith a 'railroad traversing
that State to the Pacific ocean.
" The Platte valley, where this road is con
structed, will soon till up with a farmingpopu
iation, who will find an expansive market for
all their produce in the mining regions west
of there i and as soon as the railroad renders
these mining regions accessible, the tide of
settlers will ilow in thither with as strong a
volume as into California in the days of the
gold discoveries. All that is wanting to ren
der Colorado and other Western Territories
populous, and as productive in Mineral wealth
as California, is the construction of this road.
"In the course of three years from this date, the
road can be finished to the base of the Rocky Moun
tains; in the course of seven years, „it can be
finished throvqhout its entire length, and we have
good authority for expressing " the Opinion
that by that time the rich auriarous deposits
of the Rocky Mountain range will be suffi
ciently developed to pour into the lap of
Northern commerce from three to five hun
dred millions annually. A prospect so grand
and so exhilerating as this, might well prompt
the nation to herculean efforts for the earliest
posible completion of the read?' -
Our coteinporary states that one of the
greatest drawbacks to the early completion
of the road is the delay of the lowa railroad
companies in extending their roads to
Omaha. Their extreme western extension
is one hundred and thirty milefeast of that
place. The Gazette suggests that if they do
not finish their connections soon Congress
should reclaim the donations of land that
have been made to them.
ONE GREAT OBSTACLE to the speedy re_
storation of intillStrial pursuits in the South
ern States arises from the fact that nearly
all the arable land they contain belongs to
a comparatively few owners. The men
who formerly owned large gangs of slaves
have not the capital and energy to work
these plantations, and the poor men who
are able and willing to till small tracts of
land on their own account are not land
owners. A. radical change must be
effected in this important feature of South
ern society before its future prosperity
can be secured. But powerful agencies
are at work to effect this reform. First,
abandoned lands are being subdivided by
the Government for the benefit of freedmen
and refugees. Second, the President by
excluding all parties who are worth more
than $20,000 from the benefits of the gene
ral amnesty, has reserved to Congress the
right of making such disposition as it deems
proper of nearly all extensive Southern es
tates. Third, large land-owners who re
ceive special pardons will, in many in
stances, be compelled to sell a portion of
their lands, because they have no other
available means of support. Fourth, the
emigrants who go to the South will,
in many instances, become purchasers
of a portion of the soil. Fifth, the aboli
tion of slavery and the facilities which will
hereafter be extended to the negroes, who
have hitherto been the real and almost the
only diligent agricultural laborerS, will
prompt many thousands of them to invest
their earnings in homesteads, to which they
will have a fee-simple title. The very
difficulties that now exist in the South will
tend to hasten the subdivisions of land that
are essential to her permanent prosperity.
The true solution of the free-labor problem
will speedily be found after the land gets
into the possession of owners who can indi
vidually, or with the aid of their families,
cultivate it. II is doubtless difficult in the
South, as we know it would be. in the
North, to develop immense tracts by
hired laborers, but is very easy to
find men to cultivate land which they, own.
The sooner the Southern people recognize
the full term of this idea, and devise practi
cal and equitable methods of remodeling
their whole system on the basis of numer
ous small farms, the sooner will they be
able to develop the immense natural re
sources with which they are surrounded.

WAernstoTox, September 9.—ln the Military
Commission to-day the following paper :was
put in evidence by Judge Advocate Chipman :
ANDER.SONVILLE, August 8,1881..
Colonel R. H. Chilton, Assistant Adjutant and
Inspector General C 8. A., Richmond, Va.
CoLoara. : The following additional report
of my inspection at this point is respectfully
Colonel Henry Forties, in immediate com
mand of the guard forces, deserves especial
mention as an active,intelligent, energetic,
and zealous offieer. Captain Henry Wirz, in
immediate command of the prison, is entitled.'
to commendation for his untiring energy and
devotion to the discharge of the multifarious
duties of his position, for which he is pre
eminently quaied.qualified. respectfully concur in
Inc recommendation which has teen forWara•
ed by General Winder for his promotion, and
further recommend that not less than three
captains or subalterns t specially selected for
their fitness for the position, be furnished him
as assistants.
Captain J. W. Armstrong, A. C. S., left the
post shortly after my arrival on sick leave,
locking up nearly all his books and - papers.
I was consequently unable to make a satisfac
tory examination into his affairs. Enough in
formation, however, was elicited to show that
be is a very inefficient - officer, and entirely
incompetent for the discharge of the duties of
his position, and should at once be removed.
Captain R. B. Winder, A. Q. M., is an ener
getic and efficient officer, whose whole time
and attention are requisite for the duties
strictly appertaining to his position. The ad
ditional duties devolved upon him by the in
structions from the - Quartermaster General's
office, requiring him to establish and super
vise a large shoe factory, should be imposed
on some other officer of the department. The
other staff officers at this post seem intelligent
and efficient in the discharge of their duties,
with the exception of Gaptain Samuel S.
Bailey, A. A. tir., who is mentally mid physi
cally incapacitated for their performance, and
Surgeon L. Sheppard and Assistant Surgeons
IL L. Alexander and A. Thornbaugh, who are
represented by the chief surgeon as being in
competent and inefficient.
Illy duty requires me respeetfully to T1360m.
mend a change in the officer in command of the
post, Brig. General J. IL Winder, and the sub
stitution in his place of some one who unites
both energy and judgment, with some feelings
of humanity and consideration for the wel
fare and, comfort, "so far as is consistent with
their safe,kceping,n of the vast numbers of un
fortunates placed under his control ; some
one who at least will not advocate, deliberate
ly and in cold blood, the propriety of leaving
them in their present condition until their
number has been sufficiently reduced bydeath
to make the present arrangements suffice for
their accommodation who will not consider
a matter of self laudation boasting that he has
never been inside the stockade—a place, the
horrors of which it is difficult to describe, and
which is a disgrace to civilization; the condi
tion of which he might, by the exercise of a
little energy and judgment, even with the
limited means at his command, have conside
rably improved.
In obedience to instructions, I shall next
proceed to the headquarters of the Army of the
Tennessee, and request that any communica
tions for me be forwarded there to the care of
the elder* of staff.

D. L. CHANDLEE, A. A. and f. G.
Colonel Chandler, being sworn, said he had
been in the Confederate service; he had no
retraction to make as to anything in his re
port ; during his inspection he had a conversa
tion with Gen. Winder, who eeeined very in=
different to the welfare of the prisoners, and
was indisposed to do anything,• - he remonstra
ted with General Winder as well as he could;
when the witness spoke to him of the great
mortality, and suggested that, as the sickly Sea
son was coming on, the swamp should be drain
ed, better food furnished, and other sanitary
measures adopted, Gen. Winder replied to him
ho thought it would be better to let one half
die, so they could take care of the remainder;
his (Chandler's) assistant, Major Hall, had pre
viously reported to him that general Winder
had made a similar expression to him the
witness remarked lie thought this was dis
creditable, when Major Wall said General
Winder had repeated that expression to him
several times. The R. B. Winder, the quarter
master, spoken of in his report,is the cousin
of General Winder; the witness said soon
alter his 'arrival at Andersonville he rode
around the stockade and found that the stream
was very offensive; he wanted General
Winder to have an examinationmade in order
that it might be drained; this would have
contributed to the health of the prisoners;
more wood nligilt haVe been furnished • if there
had been no other means of procuring it he
would have turned the prisoners out to bring
it in guarded by the soldiers ; he should have,
removed the cook house much earlier than it '
was removed, and placed it on another stream
in the Vicinity; the commissary,might have
compelled the purchase of green corn ; there
was plenty of it there; cabbage in limited
quantities might. have been purchased ; there
was a difficulty in getting lumber; from the
crowded condition of the prison much shelter
could not be put up; Winder might have
compelled medical officers to reside at
the post;there were fifteen or eighteen
of such officers at the prison ; on his
suggestion about nine hundred of the sick
were put under the trees; he urged upon
the department the removal of General W in
der,bellevins that if there was anothet head, a
good deal might be done ; Winder had not the
inclination to exert himself; the witness had
also urged the removal of the assistant emu
naissary, because of his physical inability, and
because he was satisfied of his inefficiency and
want of experience; his name was Armstrong;
when he in his report spoke in commendation
of Captain Wirz he had no suspicion of the
facts subsequently developed; he et'that time
saw nothing to indicate cruel treatment to
the prisoners ; lie had himself been a prisoner
and .knew how unwilling prisoners were to
make complaints in the presence of the
officers for fen} of being punished; he took
some of the pr ours aside and personally in
terrogated them ,• none made complahits
against Captain Wire ; they complained of the
want of food and insufficient clothing and
Question by the Judge ~idvocate : How long
was it after your report was made that Gene
ral Winder was promoted to the supreme com
mand of the prison! Answer. Not till after
two months and a half ; lie was made Commis
sary General of Prisons, which gave him the
control over the larger number, but removed
him from the immediate command of them.
The witness said that he went to Judge Camp
bell, the Assistant Secretary of War, and
wanted him to take up his report, but he be
lieved it was never acted upon ; he had no evi
dence that the report went to the President;
he believed it did not.
Gross-examined by Mr. Baker.—James A.
Seddon was Secretary of. War when the wit
ness went to inspect the prison ; Capt. Wirz
showed Lim the rules, to one of which he object
ed, namely, punishing the men who attempted
to escape ; thought that to be wrong, but he
eneidored the order to be Gen. Winder's,
though Capt. Wirz's name was attached to
them ; he thought Gen. Winder's bitter feeling
towards the prisoners was such as to render
him indifferent to the comfort of the men, and
hence their sufferings; the bake-shop which
he visited 'was clean, with good police, and the
bread as good as couldbe made with unbolted
meal; the bake-house and cook-house should
have been removed from the stream, as their
presence affected the water running past them;
while he was on his inspection, there was no
complaint made to him about the drinking
water,' the prisoners pointed - to the wells.
By the Court General Winder was consi
dered in supreme command of the post and
prison; the medical offieers were under the
orders of General Winder and the Surgeon
General ;
.the prison regulations were signed
by-Captain Wirz as the commandant, v.lthough
he believed General Winder was responsible
for them.
Question. Was there anything in the regula
tions 'which authorized Captain Wirz to shoot
prisoners without trial? Answer. That would
depend on circumstances; for instance, in self
defence; there was, however, nothing in the
regulations which went to that extreme.
'Question. Was there anything in the 'NoOIIII,
tions which established the dead line without
qualification ? Aus wer. I suppose the dead line
was established certainly with the knowledge
and consent. if not under the instructions of
General Winder I do not recollect the lan
guage establishing the dead line, but think it
was to the effect that any man crossing it
would be shot, without qualification..
In the course of the further cross-examina
tion, the witness said he supposed each little
squad had its own well, and that there was
drinking water enough for all ; he obtained
the impressipit from random conversations
with some or the men ; he visited the bake
house twice, and also the cook-house • the
meat was very rusty there, as it was anywhere
else in the South; the water in the stream was
unfit for washing purposes; the established
ration was the Same as that at Richmond, but
he did not know whether the prisoners re
ceived the full allowance; he could not, after
trying, ascertain that fact; the quality was
the same as he had been eating himself; the
bread was made of unbolted meal; it was im
possible to procure a sufficient number of
By Mr. Baker. What he had seen in Captain
Wirz left the impression that the latter was
desirous that the prisoners should have better
The court took a recess until two o'clock.
. . .
On reassernblhig, John Pastille, Of the naval
Service, testified as to a man dying in the chain
gang ; he was told by a rebel sentinel that for
every Yankee he shot he received thirty days'
furlough and three months' extra wages.
John A. Marshal, of the 42d New York Regi
ment, testified that he saw two prisoners shot
for approaching the dead line. In such eases
the sentries were released to go on furlough.
Rations were stopped if the men would not
form in line in such a way as to please Captain
Wirz ; he knew of a man who died from the
effects of dog bitesithe hounds being kept to
hunt out Men, •
Wm. M. Pablo '
of Southwestern Georgia,,
who was detailed as clerk to Colonel 'Porno, a
rebel officer in command, testified that while
riding out he saw a man in the Stocks who
he thought would drown, as a heavy rain was
falling upon his face ;the witness held hts um
brella over him for a 'While, and then went to
Captain Wirz to express his apprehension
Wirz said, " Let the d—d Yankee drown in
a few minutes thereafter, however, an officer
was sent from Captain Wirz's headquarters,
who took the man out of the stocks ; the crops
were not so good in 1864 as in the year before,
but the farmers had a si101118;
W. W. Crandell, of the 4th lowa Infantry, testi.
tied as to a man being badly bitten in the calves
by the dogs, and soon thereafter fastened at
each ankle with a chain and ball; the man hav
ing been kept in thiscondition several weeks,
the witness went to Wirt and pleaded for the
release of the 'prisoner, but Wirz Said he 001.11 d
not do it; the legs were swollen and had a
putrfited look; a rebel surgeon being appealed
to, said he could not conscientiously take off
more than one chain which he did ; the , tnan
finally died ; the witness, as one of the de
tailed sextons, helped to bury thirty or
forty of the men who had been shot ;
during the time General JfiferMan. was
marching from' Atlanta to the coast, the pri
soners were, of course, very anxious to hear
the news ; a report came. that Sherman and.
his Staff andeftfteen theusond prisoners had
been captured; Captain Wirz said he hoped
this was tree, and that if the prisoners were
sent there he could take care of more d.-1
Yankees than.four regiments in front ; on one
occasion a barrel of rotten pork was sent to
the commissary's office to be used by the
Yankees; the witness was employed in that
office; the next day' he received au order to
weigh out the same number of pounds of beef
and turn it over to Captain Wirz, who wanted
the best, saying it was for his own eating; he
knew the pork came from Captain Wirz's
headquarters ; prisoners who had money
contd procure food ; one of them bought a pie,
but soon vomited it up; another prisoner
near by grabbed up the ejected pieees and
ate them.
Cross-examined by Mr. Baker.—The dead
were buried by 'UM= prisoners, under the
superintendence of a rebel sergeant; the
bodies were not treated indecently, excepting
that they were carted like logs of wood in
order to get a full load, as there was only one
wagon; officers and soldiers frequently came
to the graveyard and upbraided them for not
burying the dead in better style, saying they
ought to work night as well as day; there
were not more than thirty men employed in
burying the dead, and in vain they had endea
vored to procure more help; some of the
visiting rebels said this graveyard would
make a good vineyard, the Yankee bones
affording good manure ; let us invite their
Yankee friends to come and eat thegrapes ;
he himself was put in the stocks for attempt
ing to escape ; he had proceeded one hundred
and sixty miles before he was apprehended by
scouts as a rebel deserter; fearing he would
be hung for a rebel he told them he was a
Yankee; this was in September, Mi.
Willis Van Buren of the ed New York Caval
ry, testified as to ' blankets and pants from
the Sanitary , Commission having been appro
priated by the rebels; Wirz said to him that
'he could take care of more G—d d—d Yankees
than Lee at the front; Wirz had threatened
to shoot witness for some trivial offence, and
ordered the guard to fire upon a man who had
stepped out to pick up a piece of wood the
man hastened back to the ranks before the
guard could shoot. The witness said, among
other things, that prisoners were reduced to
skeletons, and would oto the sinks to pick
up undigested particles of food. lie men
tioned several cases of shooting men; one of
them was said by at least twenty men. to have
been shot by Captain Wirz himself.
The court adjourned till Monday.

The present easy condition of the. National
Treasury renders further borrowing entirely
unnecessary. The receipts from internal reve
nue are very large, the expenses of the Govern
ment are daily on the decrease, and new
sources of revenue are opening, that during
the war were unavailable. The custom re
ceipts are so large that the Secretary is at a
lose to know what to do with the large amounts
Of gold which are daily pouring into the Trea
sury. The latest estimate of the amount of
surplus gold is *80,000,000. Of this, at least
$50,000,000 can at any moment be disposed of
without prejudice to the requirements of the
Department. At present prices this would
yield $70,000,000 in currency. There is to be re

Beside this surplus should he use the bonds
unsold, he will , have $81,555,000 of gold to sell.
In this time the Secretary will perhaps issue
certideates of indebtedness . in payment of
sundry large army and navy indebtedness in
addition to the amount already issued (viz:
about $30,000,000) $45,000,000, making a total of
$75,000,000 additional debt, which he can either
provide for by funding or pay out of the above
enormous surplus. He has also authority to
issue six per cent. compound-interest notes,
but will scarcely do this, as the currency is

TheXest Virginia oil region is beginning to

causing an intense excitement in that Vicinity:
This is a flowing well, and, it is believed, will
prove equal to the celebrated Lewellen well.

The Chicago Tribune of September 7 says :
The receipts of grain continue heavy, and
advices from the country inform us that the
produce dealers and farmers are hurrying to
market all the surplus of last year's corn crop,
in order to find room to secure the present
growing crop, when it shall have arrived at
maturity. The capacity of our railroads, and
the Illinois and Michigan Canal, is.being fully
tested and there is a loud cry for additional
facilities for transportation.
The demand for money to move this produce
Continues very active. The country bankers
have reduced their balances here so low that
it is idle for them to make any further drafts,
and our commission merchants are incessant
in their requisitions for currency. There is
Considerable demand from our wholesale mer
chants, whO have made heavier purchases
than usual in the Eastern markets, based on

Business was not very extensive. As regards
crude oil the market was very firm, with a large in
quiry for this article. The stock ou hand has been
reduced to a low ebb. Titn fact increased the grin . .
ness of holders, who were firm at 21e without pack
ages, or bulk at se, packages included. Purchasers
were anxious to close contracts for any reasonable
amount for October and November delivery, at the
!Wires we have named, and take the chances of the
market. The receipts of crude by the Allegheny
river amounted to 645 bid.s. The prospect for a
steamboat rise in that stream is favorable. Dis
patches were received.," rem various points on the
Allegheny at 011 City. The weather was rainy aud
the river swelling. At Franklin there were twenty
four inches, and at Brady's Bend, four feet. A
number of 'boats that wore on the way laid up,
started for the oil regions. As a number of boats
arc known to be on the way down, an Inert MC may
he looked for before the close of tbe week. In our
market holders were firm, buyers were plenty.
The ruling figures were 21c without, and 2.0 e with
packages. The market will no doubt become more
fettled as the receipts increase; at present the ad
vantage being on the side of holders. Refined oil
