All nations have^an adopted standard of value ; that of^the I'nited States is^the gold dollar.^The standard has intrinsic value, a^note or bond does not. The government^for ninety years has held the gold dol^^lar its standard, and every loan and act^made since that of Aug. 4, 1790, 'pro^^viding for fulfilling the engagement of^the United States, and funding its debt^upon equitable and satisfactory terms,^^has been upon that basis, although in^nine cases out of ten, no mention was^made of gold redemption. When the^loan bill came up before Congress, sub^sequently to the legal tender act, which^in no way effects the bonds^Stevens^and some few others endeavored to in^^sert a clausemaJring the bonds redeem^^able in legal tenders. He was over^^whelmingly voted down, and although^when the bill became a law, he claimed^that he had carried his point, by the^omission, he was alone in that^view. The Secretary of the Treasury,^in authorizing their sale by Jay CocV.e^^ Co., stated they were redeemable in^coin when due. The bonds were sold^to the people under that pledge by the^chief officer of the Treasury, and the^failure of the country to so redeem them^would be a swindle. Measures have^oeen introduced in Congress for con^^solidating, and funding the debt at a^low rate of interest, with an extension^of time that will at once lift the bur^^dens from this generation, and render^its payment in good faith a certainty.^^This will have been accomplished in sll^probability before the adjournment, and^the miserable, crochety, give'me my'^^found-of-flesh clap trap of the New^York Convention will have been con^^cocted in vain.

Mr.Trumbull has addressed a letter^to Governor G. Koernor, of Illinois, the^first he has written in reply to those re^^ceived on impeachment. He says :
