TUE IVBIK2EH AWD THE PUMPKr-
There is not a city lu the United States
where euch cordial relations subsist be
tween the newspaper oompoeitora and
the proprietors as in Memphis. Between
ihem, In this city, there exists none of
those bickerings ami puabblea which bo
often break out iu other cities. They
understand each other's wants and ne
cerieltiea, and instead of any antagonism
of Interest, they are mutually depend
ent upon each oilier, and hence there
la & dh-pofiiion to extend reciprocal fa
vors. There have been fewer strikes In
Memphis than any other city north or
south. This is to bo attruted to that
confidence- to which we refer. The pro
prietors of the Memphis newspapers
have never asked anything just or rea
sonable that the protective union did
not willingly, promptly, and uncom
plainingly grant. The hard times in
duced the proprietors of the Memphis
press a few days since to petition for a re
duction of rates from sixty to fifty cents,
which was promptly made. This reduc
tion will be a saving to the Appeal pub
' Hshing company of about five thou-
- . sand, dollars e per y m- for which
the Typographical Union has
the thanks of the stockholders.
This reduction never wculd have been
asked had business been prosperous, for
no one knows so well as the proprietors
of newspapers, the hard labors of a prin
ter's life. Their work is mostly done nt
night, at a sacrifice of eye-sight and
JLthealth,'aud a violatlon-6f tbe laws of
nature. Printers are the most Intelli-
t r.SpOr'fi .all classes.of trades, Indeed, the
world does not know bow much they
are indebted toj the compositors of the
newspapers for the excellent English,
the correct orthography, and perfect
t - punctuation they find-In thepapers they
dii'iy read. It Ii" uo part of the printer's
duty to make corrections. But their
knowledge and taste are so perfect that
they supply all deficiencies with but lit
tle !os3 ot time. The finest critics in
the world are to be found iu tne composing-room.
The criticisms of the
printers are severe, abounding in caust!o
wit, biting Earcasm, and pungent irony.
If the authors of communicatlcnc could
hear these commentaries, tuev vould

printer that saves nearly every writer
from suicide. Yet they are;unthanked and
unappreciated by tho very ingratcs they
nave saved from humiliation. Tne au
thor readshis communication, chuckles
oyer its general perfection, but if he
finds one error he curses the "stupid
printer," not seeming to know that tne
same printer hasjeorrected one hundred
gross, palpable, Inexcusable errors In his
vaunted production. Without the aid
of the printer, books and newspapers
" would not add much to the literature of
the country. Were the Appeal to pub
lish everything just as written by law
yers, poets, teachers, and tho critics of
public schools, our office would be be
sieged by Indignant women and en
raged men. We have no ambition to
try this experiment for even one day.
But we are digressing. We started out
merely to thank the members of the
MemphiB Typographical Union for their
liberality toward the proprietors of the
Memphis press. Their appreciation of
the situatiDn and their sense of justice
baa stieugthened their organization.
Out sympathies have always
baen with trades-unions. They
are tho necessary combinations of
l&bor against the avaricious, greed of
capital, by which last wo mean accu
mulated property in the hands of tho
few. It is all very well to assert that
labor and capital harmonize, and that
one is dependent on the other. This is
true, but it is the harmonious depend
ence of tho slave and master, man and
brute. As in all ages slaves were worked
to death, bpcause the product of their la
bor was worth more than human life,
and as the drayman oveiloads and kills
his mule, time counting more than
mule-flesh, so unrestrained capital har
monizes with the labor upon which
tkese philosophers tell us it depends.
Thsyare shooting miners in Pennsyl
vania for daring to demand living wage3
for labor, while the heartless capitalists
are operating under a system of protec
tion that made these mines sources of
immense wealth. Without these trades
unions the rich would become richer
and the poor poorer, worse than the
southern slaves just liberated. Every
trade should have a firm, psreistent or
ganization for its own protection. This
the printers have, and, so far as Memphis
is concerned, thero is a just harmony
between proprietors and compositors.
Were tho Memphis Typographical
Union dissolved, It would ba a saving
of ten thoiand dollarsjper annum to tho
Appeal publishing company, but this
aaving would be at the expense, of im
poverishing the printer, and we nav.j lie.
desire to thus degrade the profession to
which we belong. Tho sufferings, pet5

THE CDKKr.CT QUKSTIOK.
The .Republicans pretend to derive
consolation in the fact that the Demo
crats ar- irreconcilably divided on the
currency question. We idmit tint
there is litter division among Demo
crats in regard to this quest ion ; but the
Republicans are also divided. The Na
tional Democratic convention will har
monize the party on this issue. In re
gard to it thero are no doctrinal dis
putes; it is simply a question of policy;
a distinction too technical and abstract
to create any jtermauent party dissen
tion. National conventions are called
for the very purpose of reconciling euch
dlssentlons. When everybody is in
debt it iejruinous to contract the curren
cy. Iuregardjto the assertionjthat there
la money enough in the country, the
Richmond Whig asps: "If so, where Is
it? Why is Itthat there Is such com
plaint of its scarcity everywhere? How
Ie H that business is to dull? How is
it that so many men are out of
t-aiployraent? How is it that the
merchants are bewailing the hard
times? How is it that tho me
chanics are finding It so hard to get
along? How is it that the farmers ar
so strained to make the.two ends meet
a . the close of the ear? If there is a
plenty of money in the country it is net
in circulation; aud v un- tirrentcunei -ey
is a patut contradiction a financial
solecism that .-how 3 fa!.- '.-ness as well as
folly on its face. The.ol.ject of money
is to supp'.y the means of commeice, and
f ir commerce among men, .States and
peoples. When it in withdrawn from
circulation and made an article cf mer
chandise, it ceases to asrve the end for
which it was designed. It ceases to bo
a medium cl exchange from its disuse
in that capacity. It is money still, in
name, but it has ceased to bo what
money was meant to be, in fact. It is
no longer currency. It is no longer a
familiar representative of values, ac
cepted as a sign anil symbol of worth In
other things to be measured by it aa a
standard. Instead of being a vehicle cf
trade, it has become a commodity
in trada Instead of being a
medium for tho exchange of values in
separate things, it has become one of
the things itself to be exchanged. It is
as idle to expect to do business without
currency asjit is to attempt to perform
mechanical labor without tools, to till
the soil without implement", or to crcs3
a river without a ferryboat. Currency
is a common carrier of traJe that must
ba e'rual to an accommodation o' all tho
demands of trade. If there is too much
of it the excess will soon show itself ;
and jnderthe interconvertible system
proposed, instead of depreciating in
value because the supply is more than
the demand, the surplus will be at once
absorbed in government bonds, leaving
enough, and neither more nor.I-S3 than
enough, for the requirements of the
time. And again, when there is too
little of it, under this interconvertible
system, the volumo could.be, and would
be, expanded according to the vacuum
between the demand and the supply.
And thus, instead of a system of illim
itable inflation, this system suggesteu by
the opponents of the bullionists, and so
eagerly seized upon by the people, is a
very simple sjstem of expansion or con
traction, working either the one way or
the other as the necessities of iuo times
may require. It is the plainest plan for
an abundant w".liout a si:perabundant
currency that has ever been devised.
It is warmly embraced by inar.y of the
be3t thinkers on ilnanot ir the. country.
It has the suppr:t of men ,who havo
millions as well as of others who have
njt. Jt is easily understood. It will
v. ork easily; and, ones in operation, tho
orld will be amazed at the simplicity of
a scheme so effective and so tecurc. As
to he antiquated notion which belongs
aw y back in liarbarxsm, that gold, and
nothing but gold, can be a safe basis for
currency, iu its application to the .Uans
actions of this enlightened and pro
gressive aco it i-t an absurdity almost
too palpaolo to be discussed. If gold is
the basis, ws must understand that there
is a gold enough at commtL-d always to
redeem all paper currency that is found
ed upon it that the basis is as broad as
the sunersiructure all the time. Who
will eay that this is eo? Who will eay
it has ever been ? Who will say it
can be so? If then a specie basis is a
fiction of finance, why not recognize it
at once as a form but not a fact, a theory
but not a truth?1'
