THE MONTANA POST. FRIDAY, AUGUST 21.
Inview ot the repudiation schemes^advanced by the Democracy in the pres^^ent Presidential campaign, this question^becomes a pertinent one. Webster may^cot be very good authority for the party^referred to. since he was a Northern^man. but be defines it as ^coin, stamped^metal,etc., or ^banknotes or bills of^credit issued by authority and exchange^^able for c^^in. ^ This definition was also^that ot the Democracy at the beginning^of the war, when Vallandigham was in^the hab'.t of addressing his audience^with a twenty dollar gold piec ^ in one^hand and a greenback of similar denomi^^nation in the other, while he shouted^the praises of the former as ^'good hurd^Democratic money.^ Put since then^times have changed, and a eorres|^ond*^ing change has come over the ideas ot^the party not now in power, but which^by every dodge and cheat is striving to^be. We are now informed by their^great guns in convention assembled,^through the plattorm which they give^to the ]^eople. that money consists of^pieces of pap^r, more or less elaborately^adorned with green printed lathe work^upon their backs, and with sundry por^^traits, and their denominational figures^upon their faces, these pieces of paper^to be kept in circulation until they wear^out, or until their places are supplied^by other similar tokens iroin the gov-^ernment printing office. The celebrated^^Persian letters^ put similar ideas into^the head ot an Oriental on visiting Paris.^After detailing the magnificence ot the^king, the Persian adds that he is a^great magician, and that he has such a^power over his people that, by his sim^^ple assertions, he causes them to believe^that bits of paper which he gives them^are money, thereby enabling himself to^raise large armies with no other ex^^pense than that of preparing the paper.^This idea of the Persian, which was^written to be laughed at. is now serious^^ly adopted by the Democratic party.^They would place the Pres'dent of the^Utited States on the magician s throne.^He should set the engravers and printers^at work and present their prodctions to^the people, and say ^this is money,^and^it should be so. The worth of the gov -^eminent s notes, of its promises to pay,^which, like any private individual it has^issued, should consist not in the values^represented by them, but in the paper^itself and the work which had been ex-^l^ended in the adornment. But unfors^tunately for the theorv, the people of^this age and country do not acknowl^^edge the power of magic. I' is the labor^expended in the procuration of gold^which renders that metal valuable, and^which causes it to be accepted in ex^^change for other things in the produc^^tion of which an equal amount ot labor^has lieen exerted, and no circulating me^^dium can be valuable save as it is a rep^^resentative of labor, ''^be printed note^is intrinsically worth the cost of its man^^ufacture, but as a representative of oth^^er labor, or of gold which has been pro-^curred by other labor, its value may be^increased at pleasure. But the Democ^^racy propose to deprive it of this value^which pertains to it as a representative,^by their schemes of repudiation, by cans^ing one ^promise to pay,^ to pay^^promise to pay,^and so on ad infinitum^^world without end.*' What the effect^of such a transaction would be it is not^necessary for us to state, for all can see^what ruin this worthies* paper, floating^over the country would effect. ^Con^^federate^ notes, payable a number ot^years after the acknowledgement of the^independence of the ^Confederacy,^ even^the ^Continental^ money of the Revolu^^tion would I e equal in value to our^greenbacks, and the latter would be re^^tained by our people only as mementoes^of Democratic misrule. At present our^greenbacks are money. By taking this^money from Ihem ami giving them paper^in its place, the Democrats would rob j^the jieople.
illodor of tin- nigger^^and all this in^Uiom; very streets whose names were at^the beginning of the war, changed from^those of Northern States to more South^^ern titles, through a righteous fear of^contamination. I^ook upon the picture,^.Mr. Gazette, and hold your nostrils as^you gaze, let your ^white man^ contem^^plate it. and in his fertile imagination,^scent the odorous cloud that hangs about^it: let your readers notice it and meditate^ujx.n the consistency of Democracy and^it^ talk of a white man's government.^Look, upon it. all ye who boast that you^vote the ticket straight, and ask your^^self how much sincerity there is in the^party that you support. It talks sneer-^ingly of ^manhoods,^ of ^negro equali^^ty, of ^treedmen^ and tells you that as^^sociation with the nigger is full of ill^omen as well as ill odor. Yet for the^purpose of carrying out their schemes^the party leaders will do all which they^will tell you not to do, will group them^^selves in such tableaux as would be^shown up in the light of derision, did^the members ot the op|^osition take any^part in them.

Byreference to our dispatches it will j^be seen that this eminent politician and^statesman is dead. Worn out by a life j^of unceasing activity, a life which his^high attainments caused to be given to^the service of his country, first in the ^^legislature ot Pennsylvania, and subse- ;^quently for seven vears to the nation.he i^has finally been called from us. Almost^his last words referred to the politics ot !
hisbeloved country, from active partic- \ readers a large quantity of^ipation in which he seemed loth to^part. In his nature he was persevering '^to stubbornness, and having once deter- I^mined upon a project, would never rest^until he could see it completed. He was^in fact, the most radical of all ^radicals,^'^the most persistent ot all in his battles^for what he considered right, the most'^tierce in his opposition to the wrong. In '^the very beginning of the war he was i
TheGazette has it bad. .In a column^leader, in which the word ^ negro^ oc^^curs some twenty times, it congratulates^itself that the negroes of the South will^act with their natural superiors (this is^sarcastic), the members of the Demo^cratic party, and that, moreover, the lat^ter will certainly use the ^manhoods^ if^they can. The race that it has previous^^ly referred to as the ^nigger^ it no Ion^ger speaks of by that name, but rolls the^sweet morsel ^negro^ under its tongue^and froths a black vomit from its mouth^in a manner which would suggest the^propriety of its being muzzled by its^brethren ot the faith who stand in great^horror of that kind of thing. As the^hydrophobic dog runs from the water,^so does the negrophobic (inztttt run to^the negro^that is it he be a Democratic^negro. He finds that his leg is, after^all, set just a little back from the centre^ot his toot, that his complexion might^by sound Democratic treatment, become^almost white in the course of a few gen^erations. that hi* ^wool^ might Iw more^properly called very curly hair, and that^his odor is positively sweet when taken^in connection and comparison with^Democratic principles. But the Guztttt^froths at the mouth because it fears the^negro may not be allowed to vote. Hear^yel Hear \ e !' The ^i^t-, tte an advo^^cate ot negro suffrage. And why': Be^^cause a few negroes have Ueeu found in^the South that are so unprincipled as to^contemplate voting the Democratic tick^^et. And this little leaven has leavened^the whole lump of the Gnz^tt.\ white^Democracy until now it serves up its
inevery issue of its paper. We recom^^mend the attention of Brick Ponieroy to^his backsliding disciple.

Bythe Congressional Glotte of July^oOth. we learn that an important amend^ment to the bankrupt law, which passed^the House April 21st. passed the Senate
withoutamendment on the 35th ult.,1^and has been approved by the President. |^In the bankrupt act, as it originally^stood, it was provided that in all pro- '^ceedings in bankruptcy commenced after^June 1st, 186S. no discharge should be'^granted to a debtor whose assets did not 1^pay fifty per centum of the claims^against his estate, unless the assent in^writing of a majority in number and^value of his creditors was obtained.^The amendment, whose passage we now^announce, extends the time during!^other 1 wa'ca a discharge shall be granted to 1^the debtor without reference to the^amount ot his assets, until the first of^January next.
