tranklitt ffl.epozitoß,
In-Franklin and oth -. er border coun
ties liere was less than the usual ,
'9,l4ntity of landofrpred - in the mar
ket last fall, and what was for ,sale, ,
as . .'a rule, found 'ready - purchasers.
Notwithstanding the fact that the
rebels -twice overrun the 'Southern
pokion of the county, stripping,lt of
stook andforage, and destroying fen
ces,:crops` and other property the
fate - of probable hostile: incursions in
I[M:future, and the inevitable losS
sing -front friendly military ,oecupa
tied, the:,_prices of lands—'have been
steadily Maintained at . a fair valua
tion. The unbounded eonfidence of
tliipeoPle in the po'wer of the,gov,
erninent -to suppress the - rebellion,
/eiles:alinost entirely .out of the cal l
4 -- 411,tion of out arniers .the
. perils of
iniasiou, and 'military possession of
our county: .
have been addressed in sev
eratinstances by readers bf the RE
POSITORY, for our views as to the pro
eftect of the exist)ng condition
. of' our currency on -thy value of land.
Sortie have expressed grave appi:ehen-
Siorklest land should suddenly depre
04e in price to a very low point, and
we know that many iuvestnierits have
Been withheld on that ground. It is
argued that soon after the last war
.v;ith England, land, could be
chased at - about one-fourth its sel
ling price how, and the - sit* result is
d attlikely to follow' thQclose of
'the-pre ent war. This is-a palpable
error. There is'noanalogywhatever
~betwee the condition of
,our country
now, and - condition, after the war
with, England; nor can the financial
`frevultSions-which, culminated in, 1838,
nor the 7ide-spreo bankruptcy of
l X 57, fUrnish any -guide for the solu
lion. of .our present financial ex,peri
- intik. 'Hitherto our revnisions have
been the legitimate : result of over
trading, and the-general indebtedness
'of the people and the Nation beyond
their means to .yu.y. When we pur
chasett More than we, produced, the
balance of trade•was• in favor of for-
eign , countries,. and our Ppecie--*as
drained from us to pay .our foreign.
'debts, until we were left without
solvent any
basis. Now we are the hold=
ers of our. new 'debt;, we : are 'daily
.buying back from_ E4.ippean\ holders
our securities owned labrOad, and in
•steail:of. the people becoming involV
sed-in debt, they have never, within
the ',last thirty 'years, been . so, free
from 'embarrassment and on ) -so surel
s footing. -A' sudden depreciat ion 4roperty; if . it • were possible ',under
the existing state of affairs, 'would
Cause less distress and banlsrulitcy
,-_ than.crer before' • Instead of being
• in debt and, steadily increasing, our
indebtedness, as has usually beert . - the
case previous to revulsions, the-'peo
pie are rapidly diminishing their lia
bilities,.and every ,branchof industry
eminently prosperous.
• All present indications- must prove
deceptive if land does not 'steadily
advance in price for at least five years
, come, and it may be for twice or
thriee.that period. We' believe that
land will be fully fifty per cent high
-ear than it is now, and we loOk for the
present year to witness its advance
fully half that per tentage it'
mote. Land is not now as high as it
should be, taking the advance of al,
most every other article of cominerce.
Political teachers may weave the
most plausible webs of sophistry
about.finances, but =Gold is the stub
born standard of-all values, and will
SO remain. Land should,' therefore,
'.advance with dry goods, stocks, far
• fining and mining products, and all
emnmonities entering into trade.—
• That_it has not so advanced is owing
sotely, to" the fact that-sikedation
'seeks almost every other - . elXnel of
business before it strikes real . estate.
Ainillion will be gambled on fancy
stocks in a spec - dative tide, before a
thousand seeks the more tardy bat
less perilotis investment of land; and
only when the inflated prices and lin:
c - thin results' of the stock-boards

But the 'terminatioiT of the] war Js

.l pt next year; not five Sears hence;
- probably not in - ten years, and it may
not be , for fwenty years. England,
:the • richest government iof" - giurope,
suspended specie payments fer a quar

the Bank Of England, the great linen

including interest on. the public secu
rities. If our government shall be
able- to resume specie payments 'ten

if it resumes in ' twice ten yearS; it

can be no sudden 'contraction or re
•vnlsion such as we have • heretofore
'witnessed'. The 'cloSe of the war,'
wits the capita - lit leaves unemployed•
and the uncertainty Of speculativer
operations, will Steadily enhance the
value of land, government securities,
and other entirely reliable
, invest-'
ments, until the 'maximum of -cireula
tion is :reached, and its contraction
systematically commenced. Then will
fancy stocks and fictitious values
topple over, and spread ruin among

the j other substantial =securities Will
maintain- their priceS, and in time
glide down, gradually-almost
ceptibly, to the true Standard of vas}
uetheir.intrinsic valhe in specie.
.—Of all investments, therefore, we
regard land and government securi
ties as the most valuhble—the most
certain to 'appreciate = -the most per
manent in their prices—the most re
liable' in their income, and the Most
'stable under all the fluctuations which

This season the new kindsOf l grapes have _ everywhere 4
shown the degree of their superiority Over our former
best kinds to be so great that IsabeßarindCatawbatiave
almost passed from consideration, anct it was not a little
gratifying to me to learn from nli quarters thar the
grapes which received the premiums were generally
borne on vines of my production', and I have hundreds
of letters giving accouots of-trials made of my vines iu
competition with others for production and hardinesis, all
speaking the fume thing.
1 make an extract from a letter by one of our -most
distinguished hertlenituralists v it a visiting tourin 'the
vicinity of Ilartfordr .• Although I shall see you, soon,
and tell you how gratifying the eight which the 'excel
lent perforrnance of your vines has almost uniform:4,y
afforded and always when your directions have been fol
lovred,l cannot forbear mentioning a few instils:omits
this-letter. One is a case in Manchester where vines of
yonrprmluction. three years from planting; are carry
ing a crop of Delawares that are worth a journey to be
hold by the side of those from another quarter,five years
old, fur %chicks much,larger price was paid, mid which -
have not one-fifth as much • weight of - hint of as 'im
measurably inferiorquality. The purcbasershowed me, .
by calculation based upon the value of the fruit now on
the vines, that your' vines were cheaper at the Price
which he paid than the others would nave been-if - he
had received them free witha gratuity of $2 each with
every vino. Idr. ?dottier wa.s right when he decided to
plant none but your best Delawares." Dated Hartford,
Sept. 4, 1863; I make another short extract 4om
letter from Mn Cherie* AL Beach, also of Nattier* "I
didssot. begin to plant my VineYardpiatil after thnrongh
I ttrestigationi *ken it had bettomeelearly• 'apparent that

gretted that I had not te.kett this course one or two years

except that the performance has uniformly surpassed
my meat sanguine expettat itm,ast well as your premises.
I am using my utmost diligence to get another acre ren.

see that ail isright before 4 begin. The bushels of Dela.
