WHA.T 1Is MONET~
In view of the repudiation f.citce
advanced by the I)euocracy in the pree
tnt Presidential campaign. this question
becomes a pertinent one. Webster may
tot be very good authority for the party
referred to. since he was a Northern
man. but he definesit as "coin. stamped
metal, etc., or " bank notes or bills of
credit issued by authority and e.rrhange
al e for crin. " This definition was also
that of the Democracy at the beginning
,f the war, when Vallandigham was in
tihe ha:bit of addressing his audience
with a twenty dollar gold piecs in one
hand and a greenback of similar denomi
nation in the other. while lie shouted
the praises of the former as "'good hard
lI',*nocratic mone. ' Pat since then
times have changed, and a correspond-,
inr change has come over the ideas of
the party not now in power, but which
by every dodge and cheat ih striving to
be. We are now informed by their
great guns in convention assembled,
through the platform which they give
to the Ipople. that money consists of
pieces of paler, more or less elaborately
adorned with gre.en 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 from the gov
ernment printin ctffice. The celebrated
•-Persian Ietters" put similar ideas into
the h'ad of an Oriental on visiting Paris.
After detailing the magnificence of the
king, the Persian adds that he is a
great magician, and that he has such a
power over his people that, iy 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.
'ritey would place the President of the
CIited States on the magician's throne.
lie 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
ernment's notes, of its promises to pay,
which, like any private individual it has
iseued, should consist not in the values
represented by them, but in the paper
itself and the work which had been ex
pended in the adornment. But unfor,
tunately for the theory, the people of
this age and country do not acknowl
edge the power of magic. It 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 of labor
has been exerted, and no circulating me
dium can be valuable save as it is a rep
reeentative of labor. ''he printed note
is intrinsically worth the cost of its man
ufacture. but as a representative of oth'
erlabor. or of gold which has been pro
curred by other labor, its value may be
increased at pleasure. Hut the Democ
racy propose t", deprive it of this value
which pertains to it as a representative.
by their schemes of repudiation. by caus
ing one "promise to pay," to pay another
"promise to pay,"and so on ad infinitum
"world without end." \Vhat the effect
of such a transaction would be it is not
necessary for us to state, for all can see
whlat ruin this worthless paper, floating
over the counltry would effect. "Con

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 peImple only as mementoes
of Democratic misrule. At present our
greenbacks are money. By taking this

DEATH' OF THAADDELUS NTiEl'NS.
By reference to our dispatches it will
be seen that this eminent politician and
statesman is dead. Worn out by a life
of unceasing activity, a life which his
high attainments caused to be given to
the service of his country, first in the
Legislature of Pennsylvania. and subse
quently for seven rears to the nation,he
has finally been called from us. Almost
his last words referred to the polities of
his beloved country, from active partic
ipation in which he seemed loth to
part. In his nature he was persevering
to stubbornness. and having once deter
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 of all in his battles
for what he considered right, the most
fierce in his oplposiin to the wrong. In
the very beginning of the war he was
one of the first, not only to advocate the
emancipation of the slaves. but to tavor
their use as soldiers in the suppression
of the rebellion. In the impeachment
trial he took a prominent part as one of
the managers on the part of the House.
At the time of his death he was 72 years
of age, having been born in 1792. He
was a native of Vermont, but lived the
greater portion of his life at Lancaster.

sent to the House as a Representative of

AMIEND1mENT OF THE BANIK
IUlT LA W.
By the Congressional Globe of July
30th. we learn that an important amend
ment to the bankrupt law, which passed
the House April 21st. passed the Senate
without amendment on the 25th ult.,
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, 186&. no discharge should be
granted to a debtor whose assets did not I
pay fifty per centunm of the claim.
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
I which a discharge shall be granted to
the debtor without reference to the
amount of his assets, until the first of'
January next. The amended clause now
reads as follows:
Il all 11 roceeding in Bankruptcy com
-lenced after the fir.-t day of January, eighteen
hundred and .ixty-nine, no discharge hball be
granted to a debtor whose assets shall not be
equal to fifty per centum of the claims proved
against the estate upon which he shall be lia
ble as the principal debtor, unless the asent
in writing of a majority in number and value
of his creditors to whom he sball have become
liable as principal debtor, sad who shall have
proved their claims, be filed in the case at
or before the time of the application for dis
Other sections of the act are, by this
amendment, changed, but principally
for the purpose of correcting clerical er
rors. and.do not require especial atten
tion from any save the legal fraternity.
The passage of this amendment will
enable many whom the unsettled con..
dition of the country has caused to be
involved in debt to such an extent that
the paths of the future seem beset with
thorns for them, to fairly and equitably
settle with all their creditors, and start
once more, "even with the world," on
the road to prosperity. Those who owe
debts to a greater amount than three
hundred dollars, who are unable to pay
those debts in full, but who are willing
to surrender all their estate and effects
for the beneft of their ereditaos ean do
the latter no greater jestle. nor them'
selves a graeat- bemet than by taking
advantage of this act at mem. There is
but a trifle over foa mothe in whieh to
do this, and there is no probability that
the time will be again extended.
