To Stop Depreciation.

To the Editor of the Dispatch.

Each issue of Confederate money must be fundable and current for one year from its date, to go in force January 1st, 1864, after which time all notes Issued previous to January 1st, 1863, would cease to circulate or be received for public dues, but would be held as certificates of debt without interest, payable as they on their face declare--six months or two years from the ratification of peace. This action would be so gradual as not to be felt, and as the notes would never be issued a second time it would insure the Government an abundance of money for the war, and by reducing the circulating medium to a healthy proportion it would increase public confidence and establish on a firm basis the prices of labor and the necessaries of life.
