Friend of Friends Friday: United States and Negro Stock June 1861--Scary?

Amidst the articles in the Charleston Mercury dated June 1, 1861, the following was found.

Scary United States bonds at 85 cents on the dollar compared to average price of a negro child at $750?

Ahh, genealogy.  Reading the newspapers of the past can be scary as past deeds haunt us still.
