Investing in bonds.

In some parts of the State there is a patriotic disposition manifested to invest money in Confederate bonds, in preference to indulging in speculation in the necessaries of life. The county of Jefferson has within the last three months, as we are informed by one of her principal business men, sent to Richmond nearly five hundred thousand soldiers to be funded in eight per cent bonds, thus relieving the circulation of the Government to that extent. If every county in the Confederacy would do as well, there need be no apprehension of a depreciation of the Government currency. Jefferson is one of the counties, too, that has been in possession of the enemy nearly one-half the time since the war commenced.
