But there is one sordid consideration which is little thought of,—if the South had had the money!
Colonel James G. Gibbes, of this city, the present Surveyor-General, recalls an interesting fact bearing on this if.
In 1862 he was sent out by the Treasury Department of the Confederacy to negotiate the famous cotton bonds.
Mr. C. G. Memminger, of this State, was Secretary of the Treasury, but Colonel Gibbes was sent at the advice of Mr. Judah P. Benjamin, Attorney-General, who had, while an attorney in New Orleans, been a legal adviser of Colonel Gibbes.
The latter ran the blockade out of Charleston the first week in November (parenthetically, Colonel Gibbes remarked that blockade running was far from an impossibility.
John Frazier & Co. were famous blockade runners, and made 60 trips before a single vessel was attacked.
However, pilots were paid fabulous prices, and a captain received $5,000 in gold for each trip).
