The depreciation of Confederate notes.
A gentleman lately was purchasing in one of the King
street shops a cost, which perhaps might have commanded $8 in ordinary times.
He was asked $60 and on taking out the money be showed fire gold dollars.
With a glance like that of a vulture over a fat carcass, the seller of the coat eagerly remarked, pointing to the gold, "give me dat, and make do coat."
In another we are told, flour, for which $75 in bills was was offered for $10 in specie.
How far can such things be carried?-- Charleston (S. C.)
