London, July 23.?Rev. Dr. McCosh,
President of Princeton College, presided
over the Presbyterian Council. He mado
n speoch, in wqioh ho eloquently traced
the progress of the idea in favor of
union. He described his original sug?
gestion at Philadelphia in regard to it,
and tho cordial reception of the scheme
in America which culminated in the suc?
cess of 1873, whon a meeting of the
Evangelical Alliance, such as was only
possible in tho United States, was held.
This led to a conference betwoen distin?
guished men, who declared tho accom?
plishment of the schemo one of tho de?
sires of their hearts. With regard to n
constitution, be might say that tue Coun?
cil had agreed to take the consensus of
the Reformed Church, The objects of
the alliance were settled. The Council
would consider the question of the gen?
eral interest of the community, soek the
welfare of weak and oppressed churches,
collect and distribute information about
the church, and entertain aU subjects
connected with the work of evangeliza?
tion. Resolutions favoring the alliance
were unanimously passed.
London, July 23.?A protest, placed by
Mr. Plimsoll on tho table of the House of
Commons last night, is published. In
it PRmsaR says: "I protest, in the name
of God, against the delay of the shipping
bill. Although the bill itself is an atro?
cious shame, there is enough humanity
and knowledge in the House to. chango
it into a good measure." He denounces
the present laws against breach of con?
tract, which leave sailors who hate un?
knowingly agreed to sail in unseaworthy
ships, the alternative of the gaol or death,
and continues: "I charge the Govern?
ment with wittingly and unwittingly
playing into the hands of the maritime
murderers inside and outside the House,
to secure a continuance of .tho present
murderous system. I desire to unmask
the villains who sit in the House, fit rep?
resentatives of more numerous but not
great villains out. I demand that tho
ill be proceeded with. Failing in this,
I lay upon the heads of the Premier and
his colleagues the blood of all who perish
next winter from preventable causes, and
pronounce against^him and them the
wrath of God."

G Anurous, Ohio, July 22.?A Demo?
cratic mass meeting was held here to-day,
at whioh Governor Allen and Mr. Gco.
H. Pendleton spoke. Tho latter in his
speoch alluded to tho meeting of tho
Republican convention last year, and
the claims in its platform; but, said ho,
this year it tunes its voico to a different
key, and only declared itsolf in favor of
our publio school system and the separa?
tion of church and State. Upon these
Joints, ho Raid, tho Demoorats could
ave no argument with tho Republicans,
and he quoted from the platform to show
that the Democratic party would uphold
the Stato Constitution in tins respect.
He interprets the platform to mean adhe?
rence to the principles of tho Govern?
ment established by tho fathers; opposi?
tion to all encroachments of one depart?
ment upon another, or of tho Federal
power upon the constitutional rights of
tho States; equality before the law of all
citizons; one Presidential term; retrench?
ments whenever there is extravagance:
reform wherever there is abuse; no sub?
sidies; publio lands for actual settlers; a
tariff for rovonue only; equal and exact
justice to all; religion free; secular edu?
cation in public schools; opposition to
sumptuary laws and to interference with
social habits; and on financial questions,
a cessation of contraction, a sound and
sufficient currency, groenbeoks instead
of national bank notes, and greenbacks
for customs to the extent that the neces?
sities of the Government will permit.
This platform, he claimed, had been
misrepresented; it called for a currency
equal to the wants of trade, and that, he
claimed, was a fitting measure for the
volume of ourrenoy. The Democrats do
not favor a depreciated currency. * He
thought he interpreted the opinion of the
party and the platform when he declared
thai they were in favor of coin as the
basis of ourrenoy; that paper ourrenoy
should be convertible into coin at par;
that tho party desire a return to specie
Eayments as speedily as the interest of
?bor (Ud bustness will permit; that we
would be glad to return immediately
if honor and good faith and justice
would permit and it were possible. The
Democratic party is not now and never
has been in favor of repudiation in
any form. We believo it is our highest
duty to fulfill all our country's obliga?
tions, according to the spirit and letter of
our promise. Wo are not now and never
havo been in favor of a volume of cur?
rency, changing and fluctuating accord?
ing to the whims of parties or the inte?
rest of bankers, or the demands of reck?
less speculators, but sufficient for the
easy, active, economical and profitable
interchange of commodities, and us fixed
and stable as the nature of the ease will
allow. And so long as we must have a
Government paper currencv. we prefer
greenbacks, which arc sound and cheap
and good, to national bank notes, which
at tho outset cost the people six per cent,
and are at least only redeemable in
greenbacks. Ho confessed thnt there
were defects und dangers in this coin
basis system, thut the superstructure of
paper was larger than the foundation of
com, nnd that as tho superstructure
grows higher, it grows wider and lurgor;
but ho would not discuss to-day the
merits of the various kinds of currency.
The present necessities demand relief
that should be promptly provided. He
repeated that he was a hard money man,
that a return to specie payments should
be kept steadily in view in legislation
and in action, and that wise statesman?
ship will seek the means of reconciling
such a return with the true interests of
labor and business, and jastice to the
debtor. Resumption cannot be forced.
It must bo tho outgrowth of surround?
ing healthy conditions, or it will be
'neither beneficial nor permanent. When
: in Congress, he voted against tho legal
I tender Act, believing the law unconsti?
tutional and tbo policy unwise. As the
policy had become interwoven with our
finance and trade, he would seek all
the good he could find in it Ho would
not abandon specie payments, but ho
would not rush ruthlessly back to specie
payments over the prostration of all
business and the ruin of the debtor.
The Democrats established the suit-trea?
sury system, and the Government in 18Gl
paid nothing but gold and silver. A
Republican Congress passed the bond
Act, tho legal tender Act and the na?
tional bank Act Gold and silver ceased
to circulate, and in 1865, the various
issues of paper money had reached an
enormous sum. Then commenced the
Republican system of finance to contract
the currency, and if necessary to this
end increase tho interest-paying debt;
and contraction has been steadily going
on ever since. With the decrease in the
currency there has been a decline in the
prosperity and happiness of tho country,
until now we are confronted with a con?
dition of affairs which all feel too keenly
to make a description necessary. To-day
there is more property for sale under
executions by the sheriffs of Ohio than
ever before. Gold and paper stand to?
day nt a difference of fourteen per cent;
a year ago, tho difference was ton per
cent Republicans olaim contraction as
a remedy for these things, and Congress
has passed a law declaring that a resump?
tion shall take place in January, 187U,
and the treasury is preparing for this by
buying gold and silver. Every dollar of
gold purchased with bonds for the re?
demption of greenbacks adds to the an?
nual interest It is the old story of
funding a dobt which pays no interest
He showed by comparison that the ex?
ports of flour, wheat, cotton, petroleum,
meats, turpentine, tallow, tobacco and
timber had fallen off $88,000,000 since
lost year. Tho Democratic party points
to a middle path as tho way to safety.
Abandon this policy of contracts, stop
tinkering with the currency, stop this
effort at forcing resumption, give stabili?
ty for a time, give business a moment to
revive, promote industry and produc?
tion, stimulate enterprise by the pros?
pect of gain, labor more and spend less.
The great want of - the country is an en?
tire freedom for labor, a removal of every
obstacle, the presence of every aid; fair
prices, steady markets and ready sales
are aids, and to socure these a sufficient
and sound currency and low interest aro
indispensible; and if to these bo added
low taxes, rigid economy, simplicity of go?
vernment and purity of administration,
the movement toward resumption will
bo continued and accelerated.
