, on the 3d inst. G. B. Lamar
, (late of New York city,) was chosen President
, and J. S. Gibbes
A correspondent of the Charleston Mercury writes:
The business at the morning session was referred to a committee.
The said committee reported at 4 o'clock P. M. The greatest harmony prevailed.
All seemed disposed to devise and aid in carrying out liberal means in support of the Government
of the Confederate States
Resolutions were unanimously passed, recommending the banks throughout the Confederate States
to receive for dues, and in deposit, Treasury notes.
A resolution was also passed recommending the railroad companies to receive the Treasury notes for fares and freights.
Other important resolutions were passed.
The prompt action of this large Bank representation will doubtless have a fine effect in giving full confidence to the public in the issues and credits of our Government.
The ten Confederate States
will soon be ready to furnish, if necessary, one hundred million of dollars, and five hundred thousand fighting men. No one doubts the result of the war.
