How I?EDJEE?IABJIE. - The New York
Evening Post explains that nil tho is?
sues of Government bonds which do
not specify in what currency redeem?
able, are to be redeemed in coin, while
those which on their face ure to be
paid in " lawful money" are redeem?
able in leg-.il lenders or greenbacks.
The question, it says, excites doubts
and uneasiness; but the view given is
generally understood, und has been
recognized by the late and present
Secretaries of the Treasury. It adds:
The distinction between the two
classes of bonds is broadly marked by
their current prices. The six per
cent, bonds payable in 1881 aro at
thirteen or fourteen per cent, pre?
mium; the six per eont. bouds paya?
ble in 1896 arc worth ouly par, q?o
twg both Aa currency. Tho latter,
hftving the"' longest time to run,
would, of tho two, be selling at much
the higher price if it were not that the
former -are -understood to be gold
bonds, while tho latter are by their
express terms currency bonds.
Tile temporary loans, the com?
pound interest notes, the seven-t hirty
note?-all these were well understood
to be payable in currency, and no one
expects or asks for any other pay?
ment. In the thirty-year bonds, pay?
able in 1896, which are those issued
%Q the Pacific Railroad, the promise is
explicit to pay in our lawful money,
which words are understood by all to
mean our legal tender notes. Ho with
tbe short obligations; the agreement
to pay and to receive in payment this
lawful money was explicitly under?
stood on both sides. Where no such
agreement was made, the obligation
to pay in coin is of course. The
United States cannot, in the lutter
instances, pay, without dishonor, in
anything hilt gold coin.
THB WASHINOTON CHRONICLE 10:
PUDIATED.-The radicals seem to lie
bent upon repudiating Forney. Not
content with bringing old Thad.
Stevens out ugain&t him as a candi?
date for the United States Senate,
with a certainty of defeating him,
they have made arrangements fori
establishing a new organ in Washing?
ton city, which will appear to-day, it
is said. It is to be called The Great
Republic, and will be extremely radi?
cal and intensely hostile to the Pre?
sident's policy, yet doubtless a de?
cent journal as compared with tho
Chronicle. It is to be under the edi?
torial management of Hon. J. M.
Edmunds, the present postmaster of j
the Senate, who was but recently ap
Sointed to the office in the room of a
ohnson man that was turned ont.
Forney is clerk of tho Senate. So
we shall have the postmaster against
the clerk. Forney's paper is not very
profitable even now, and lives, no
doubt, on the eramba fed to it by the
office-holders in Washington. How
long it will last when this patronage
shall have been divided, timo will
show. -Richman d Dispatch.
The radicals of Mr. Beecher's con?
gregation, in order to neutralize the
influence of his late letters, gave the
Sontheim radicals a reception in
Beecher's church. The "traveling
menagerie," as the papers call them,
marched in, and were greeted with I
wild applause. They were weloomed j
to the church "where tho principles
of abolitionism and tho doctrine of
Sharpe's rifles were first sent forth j
into the oity"-so tho orator said.
Maynard was the first to reply; after j
which the big organ burst out into
"John Brown," at which the audience
grew frantic with excitement, .and
?boated in a vociferous manner the j
chorus, not forgetting the line, !

TUR EMPEROR'S IIXXXSS.--The
. cable bas intimated that Hie Emperor
' Napoleon is ill. That is nfact -which
has been known for some time past,
though for obvious reasons the French
journals have had but little to say
about it. The court gossips ni e less
reticent. The press may be pad?
locked, but it. is a harder matter to
keep people's tongues still. His
Majesty's ailment is understood tobe
diabetes-and as the doctors say that
is a complaint from which the patient
rarely recovers, it. is not surprising
that people are beginning to specu?
late upon what is going to happen.
The Emperor, undoubtedly ?-.ware of
the fact that he must die some time,
settled tho "succession" along while
ago -but. in a country like France, it
is much easier to make a settlement
on paper than a settlement in fact.
Dynastic settlements are never cer?
tain there. Tho people are fond of
change, and ns they have not had ono
now for a good many y cms, the
temptation to indulge ina new deal
of the cards, should tho Emperor
drop oil", might be too powerful for a
Regency, or an Empress ns popular
even as Eugenie, to control.
It is idle to calculate on the future,
however, in n case like this. No?
thing is certain, bid. uncertainty.
And that is one ol the weaknesses oJ
what is called a strong Government,
with all power vested in one mau.
When the one man dies, there is no
thing left behind -to fall back upon.
Everythingis at the mercy of chance
Not so in free Governments. Tin
Queen of England might clift to-day
and the machino would goon just sa
before, without apprehension of revo
lution, anarchy, or anything ol' th<
isovt. The President ol" th? Cn i to?
States, also, might die, but the Go
verument would bo in no danger o
dying with him. Free Governments
iu point of fact, are always tb
strongest. Those which rest npoi
the "olio man power"' are ever ii
peril of crumbling to piece?, whei
the limn himself is no more.

TANT DECISION.-The Warrenton Sen
Hurt contains the following report <
an interesting and important case:
Stewart and Palmer rs. Hanbncl
An action ot unlawful detainer.
This Ls an action instituted by th
plaintiffs to recover the possession ?
a tract of land called Waverly, a mil?
and-a-half from this place The tri:
of the case has engaged tim attoutio
of the Court for the Inst three day
and the main point in Hie case wa:
as to the validity of a deed execute
i by lt. M. Smith to the plaintiffs, i
June, 1KG3, the consideration <
which was Confederate money.
Hanback entered upon thc posse
.sion erf the laud in 1862, and held
os the tenant of Smith. Smith so!
\ and conveyed to the plaintiffs, by tl
deed of June. 18G3. Til? quest k
upon the deed was raised Uv the d
fendant's counsel by a motion to e
elude it as evidence from tho j ul?
and was elaborately argued by Messi
Helm and Hunton, for the d?fendit:
and by Messrs. Tucker and Shack?
ford, for the complainants. The Cou
over-ruled the motion to exclude, ai
allowed the deed tu go to tlio jar
The result ot' this ruling settles t'
law, so far as this Court is concerno
in favor of the validity ot deeds f
land sold during the war for Con fed
The jury rendered a verdict for t
plaintiff. We understand the ea
will be carried np to the Court
GENERAL, GUAN?-.-The Richmo
Times says: The fidelity of Genei
Grant to his Commander-in-Chief
something for which he deserves i
finitely more credit than for his mu
landed victories over a half starv
army of brave Confederate soldie
The indignant and earnest manner
which, at the theatre in Oincinnn
I he rebuked the men who would hi)
honored him at the expense of
Chief, marks him as a gentleman a
a man of sterling worth.
Whether he sustains the Preside]
policy <.:. not, he has thc pluck ?1
firmness to rebuke those excesses
decency and ill-breeding by which 1
radicals have disgraced thc natii
If he docs sustain Congress and ?
fers with the President, he doser
still greater credit for his late ma
exhibition of fidelity to Presid
Johnson. !t is, wc think, very ?

leanings o? Grant, there is little 01
