State of Trn(ie.
Tin; New York World says:
The continued dullness of trade,
the general decline iii pri?es, and thc
curtailment. of manufacturing, ure
beginniug to have a depressing iullu
enco upon the standard of wages.
Merchants, manufacturers aud other
employers, are discouraged by the bu?
siness prospect, aud, ns usual under
such circuuistauces, they are inclined
to seek for relief in the reduction of
wages. This disposition is strength?
ened, too, by a belief, or perhaps ra?
ther a fear, that stormy times in the
financial world are not far ahead.
The wholesale merchants, for in?
stance, are generally- cuttiug down
their force of salesmen and other em?
ployees, upon the presumption that
next year's business will full furbelow
that of the present. lu the matter
of wages there is but little difference
in this branch of trade between the
salaries aud the arrangements for
next year. Heads of departments
have, in some cases, obtained ad?
vances, but the general standard of
wages in the wholesale trade hus but
slightly lessened. A large number of
stock clerks will be thrown out of em?
ployment on the first of January; also
a considerable number of entry clerks,
porters, etc. It is in the manufactur?
ing line, however, that the dull times
are most keenly felt. A great many
manufacturing concerns in this city
aud throughout the country have
lately suspended operations, others
have curtailed their business, and
others still have cut down the wages
of their operatives. There is now a
strong tendency toward lower wages
in several branches of manufacturing,
particulary in the cotton and woolen
line. The employers in these branch?
es, unmindful of the fortunes they
m&do in "shoddy"' contracts during
the war, are now inclined to turu
their operatives out of employment,
or else cut them down to un remuner?
ative wages at tho first sign of hard
times. It is our impression, however,
crgjptt there is much unwarranted unea?
siness among business men. It is
true that trade is dull, and that pre?
dictions of a financial revulsion ure
rife. But wo have had just such
predictions duriug the last five years,
and we-see no tangible reason for
gloomy apprehensions. At the same
time, however, it is best for the work?
ingmen to place themselves on the
safe side by sticking- to their employ?
ments wherever possible, and hus?
banding their resources closely, re?
membering that if the panic comes,
prices of commodities will go down
with a crash.-New York San.
NEGKO SUFFHA GE.-The Nat iona
Intelligencer says :
It was stated repeatedly on the
floor of the Senate, in the negro-suf?
frage debate, that we must either pro?
tect the negro or give him the ballot
to protect himself. But even with
the ballot, he cannot protect himsell
against a hostile public sentimeut;
and by forcing the ballot into his
bauds, we but intensify the hostile
feeling against him, and prepare for
civil commotions throughout the
South. Is it not the part of states?
men so to legislate as to pave the way
for the voluntary adoption of pro?
posed reforms, rather than thrust
them upon a reluctant people? As
long as the Highland airs aud cos?
tume were interdicted by Act of Par?
liament, they were the badge of de?
votion to the Stuarts, and were
sacredly revered in many a Scottish
home. The moment the interdict was
removed, Scotland was free from dis?
turbance. Negro suffrage voluntarily
adopted by any Southern State can?
not lead to mischief. Negro suffrage
forced upon any white population in
the South will breed commotion,
hatred and bloodshed, as much be?
cause it is forced agaiust their ren?
dering of the Constitution as for any
