Archbishop Mcclosky delivered the address. A Fine a Banc for european capita. From the ii. Y. Herne in England and France and particularly in England just now there is. Such an abundance of Money that the holders of it Are seeking investments at two and two and a half per cent. Almost every available Opportunity of employing it there profitably and safely Lias been exhausted. The limit of development has been reached for those who desire a Good per cent ago for their capital. How a different Here the British Isles Tho territory of the United states is so vast and full of undeveloped resources that the creation of capital rapid As that is cannot keep Pace with the demand for it. It is True there is in new York at present an easy Money Market but that is temporary and arises from artificial causes but even Here Money can be used at More than double the interest it can in England. In other parts of the country it is scarcer and a higher rate is obtained with ample Security. But the South that Garden of Quot the american continent is in great need of capital and in need of More than new York can Supply. There Money is sought at ten fifteen or More percent Tho people were so impoverished by the War that they were left without Means to cultivate their lands and transport their produce and Al though they Are recovering from this deplorable condition they Are still in need of Money and Are ready to make great sacrifices to obtain it. Millions of acres of the finest Cotton Rice tobacco and sugar lands Are waiting for the application of capital to bring out their riches. Then the South teems with Mineral wealth in Tho finest Iron ores in Coal Copper Gold and other minerals. The water Power is unequalled. Australia is not a finer Wool country. The Best floor that comes to the Market is from the South. Its extensive and splendid forests of Timber Are Well known. Virginia alone could ra�3e the most delicious fruits and. Finest vegetables sufficient to Supply Tel the Northern Market. Added to All this and much More we find there the most delightful and healthy climate and Beautiful country. Hero is then the Field for capital and immigration. The lands can be bought cheap a High rate of interest will be Given for Money on Good Security slavery is abolished forever and the freedmen Are peaceable and industrious. Under the new state of things the South is destined to Advance in Prosperity and wealth beyond what it Ever was or could be in former times and those who Are Wise in investing capital there now will reap a Rich har Vest. In a few months probably the Southern states will be restored to All their privileges v in the Union. Then a magnificent future must be their destiny. A amp.
