The making oi Confederate bonds and notes was a great trial with the young treasury. In the south no engravers could be found, and nothing like good bank paper. So arrangements were made to print bonds in New York. The work was ¿one about very care- fully, and every means used to avoid detection, ltut the bonds were seized, however, before they left New York. These bonds were printed by the American Bank Note Company, and when the federal uuthoritos found this out, through a tell tale employe, the Southern Confederacy had to rely upon its own resources to get up borids and notes. An engraver of cards and post- era by the name ol Hoye; a Ger- man by nationality lived in Rich- mond, and lie wus employed to issue the first ...

On Sunday last the barkentine Sánchez entered the jetties and crossed the bar drawing sixteen l'eet Ave inches of water. This in itself is not remarkable, as Ve lasco has claimed ever since last fall that she had seventeen and one-hall' feet of water on the bar, but the impression has gone abroad through the instrumen- tality of enemies of the new port that such was not the fact. Vessels drawing several inches more than the Sanchez have crossed the bar and can do so now, notwithstand- ing the talk of the croaker. The deepest hdened vessel crossing the bar at Galveston drew fif- teen feet six inches,'and yet our neighbor and rival has grown to a great city.
