Then It was agreed that a sum not ex ceeding $20,000,000 be issued in blllsof credit, for whose redemption the twelve Confederate colonics Georgia not then being represented wero pledged. The bill specified tho form ami the number and denomination of the bills to be issued. The plates of the bills were engraved by Paul Re vere, of Huston. The size of the bills average J) J by 2 indies, and they were printed on thick paper. New issues of this currency were made from time to time until tho close of 1770, when the aggregate amount was .1212.000.000, and the bills had so much depreciated then that $100 in spool would pur chase $2,000 in paper money; in 1781 tlie same amount in specie would buy $7,500 in imper. Strenuous efforts were niado by Congress to keep up the redit of this currency, but as the one essential to save it, a pledge from the States to redeem it in specie, could not hi secured, the money was bound to go down. Fatly in 1777 a convention of representatives of New Kngland States agreed upon a scalo of prices for all goods.

While un questionably a very great musician, ho has made himself uncuviabty notorious 13 his mad outbursts of temper and other eccentricities. Indeed, for years past tho public has como to expect, as a matter of course, some sensational scene whenever ho appoars before them. Lattorty he lias been playing (ho part of a laity-killer. Though his head is bald and his faco wrinkled witli age, ho ogles and smirks at every pretty woman in tlio audience, blows kisses from ids finger-tips, and when ever lie speaks in public fails not to de clare, witli his hand 011 his heart, that all the inspiiatiAu of his playing comes from tho love-litton eyes of the objects of his adoration. Such conduct does not increase one's admiration of him. Hut thero was an incident of another kind at Herlln tho other evening which ha won for him groat praise, and which makes tho public forget every fault of which lie lias ovor beon guilty. It was at one of the great Philharmonic concerts. There was an uuusualty large and brilliant audience, including. several royal por.-otiages. Tho most attractive feature of tlio programme was tho solo violin playing of a young lady who is known as a rarely gifted artist. Tho early part of tho programme was executed. bi;t when it camo time for tho violinist to appear the announce ment was made that she had been stul ilotih taken ill and could not appear. As half the audience had como for the express purpose of hearing her, the disappointment was great A murmur of regret and almost of anger ran through tho house. Then an elderly gentleman, who had been sitting un noticed in a parquet seat, arose and made his way towards tho stage. At 'irst ho was not recognized, and every 0110 looked to seo what ho was about. Then somo 0110 exclaimed, "Wlij. its Von Hulow!" and tho entire auilionce burst into applause, though without knowing why. No one had any idea ivhat he was going to do. Most of them expected that ho would make r. violent scene of some sort. But lie trode on towards tho stage, waving me hand above his head and blowing 'isses to tlio ladies from tlio other Reaching the stage he looked deproca- ingly downward at his clothes. Ho vas not in evening costume, but wore 1 lioi-t roundabout sack coat or jacket, lie lifted tlio short skirts of this witli lis hands, shrugged his shoulders dep- ecatingly, and thou, without a word, at down at the piano. Tlio audience .vas quiet. Tlio musicians in tho rchestrsi laid down their instruments. Then he began. Tho piece clioson was 1 great concerta of Beethoven. For .hree-quarters of an hour ho phtyed as tne inspired. It was remarked that 10 one ever heard him play so well before. Somo declared that neither Liszt nor Rubinstein had ever surpassed ,t. Certainty, it more than atoned or tiie absence of tho violinist. The rent concerta ended, ho rose and hur ied . ut.ecrotiioniousty from the stage mck to his seat in tho parquet, while ho house literally trembled with ap ilause. Ho sat down, and looked ! out as though expecting tiie orches--a to go on with tiio remainder of the nigra m me. Hut, no.

VALUE OF "ADVERTISING. The Most Kollnlilo Wuy of Achieving Suc rt4S In lltnlnesi. Since tlio invention of printing with types, which dates back further than tlio ditys of Guttenberg, there has been no time when tho advantages of adver tising were moro fully understood and appreciated than at present. Tlio ben efits derived from a judicious use of printer's ink 3iavo been so obvious that It has como to bo a recognized axiom among business moil that tho moro lib erally it is used, tho greater becomes tho chances of winning success. Of courso thero are isolated cases, in which men who havo won prosperity without its aid will scout at tho idea of its proving a valuable auxiliary to others. It will bo found on inspection, however, that thoso fossils, for 3'our true opponont of advertising is neces sarily an antiquated man, thoroughly inerustcd with prejudices, havo suc ceeded by pure luck, ant not through tho excrciso of anj special talents pos sessed by them. On tho other hand, how numorous aro tho instances in which men of sense, aided by tho pub licity afforded 03 newspaper advertis ing, have beon enabled to reverso tho rulings of fate, which would have, had U1C3 quietly acquiesced, relogatod them to tho obscurity of failure. Tho history of tho successful business men of this county is so pregnant with tributes to advertising that tho" first attempt to givo a collection of biographical sketches of thoso who had won fanio and fortune in tho ranks of trado was made by a firm dovotcd en tirely to tlio profession of securing ad vertisements and having the same pub lished. It is a singular fact that this series of biographies embrace tlio names of nearly all tho prominent men .who havo amassed wealth as merchants, manufacturers or professionals; and undoubted evidences aro presented with each sketch that no small part of their good fortuno was owing to thoir shrewdness in attracting public atten tion to their business, through tho me dium of the pre.-s Such striking in stances of success as are rohoarsod in tho volume referred to could not do othorwfso than carry conviction to all minds ready to receive sensible impres sions: and therefore wo aro .itVnnlod the spectacle ot all classes eagerly striving to gain tho greatest possible publicity, not always, however, at tho greatest possible cost. Indeed, tho op posite is sometimes the case. Tho nowty-Uedged advertiser oftn devotos his attention to circumventing tho business omVe of a newspaper. But U regular, legitimate and persistont advertiser learns and appreciates tho vain of such pbUciiy, and willingly pastk east in eial!ickl jourmrfs of intlnen and character.
