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
is one of the counties, too, that has been in possession of the enemy nearly one-half the time since the war commenced.
