News and Otherwise. Radical Organ on Specie Payments.
! eata. '
The Cincinnati Gazette takes strong
ground against the immediate resumption
of specie payments,, but in doing so for
gets Its ancient cunning.
The ground assumed by this able Radi
cal sheet" Is thus briefly stated. The peo
ple are in debt The great indebtedness of
the country was contracted since the law
made greenbacks a legal tender, and
when the legal tender currency was so de
preciated as to be worth but sixty to sev
enty cents on the dollar In coin.' To force
specie payments would be to Increase each
man's indebtedness from thirty to forty
cents on the dollar, and hence the objection
of the Gazette, that unless a law is passed
mac all debts can be paid in coin, at the
selling rate of gold at the time the debt
was contracted the - resumption of specie
payments would ' bankrupt' the peo
ple, i As for instance the "Instance"
Is-' ours, not the Gazette's the man who
contracted a debt of $1,000 on' the 11th of
July, 1864, . payable In five years gold
then selling at 35 cents on the dollar in
greenbackscan liquidate this. $1,000 debt
on the day It becomes due, with $285 60 in
gold. , If this Is done, then the Gazette goes
lor . the . early resumption of specie pay
ments, but not otherwise. "' .. ,w, .
The legal tender act. Immediately after
Its passage,,, was., construed by "loyal
Courts to( data ,Jack,,: and to cover all
contracts previously made, even where coin
was nominated in the bond. Nay, so far!
did the courts carry this doctrine that decis
ions are now to be. found, where, In the case
of a special deposit of gold iu bank, it was
adjudged that a tender in greenbacks, then
worth but thirty-five to forty cents, was &
lawful ones because greenbacks were a legal
tender for all debts. The Gazette entered
no. protest against this, ? lawful swindling
by bankers, .but on ..the xontrary, as
"loyal" sheet, it approbated it.'v ,i
, The; first bonded debt of. the United
States, in amount six hundred million doi

dred and nineteen million: dollars ($616,

in gold, was sixty cents on the dollar. iq
For the year., endirg July'l.f 1865, one

'The Donda" to'aolu .'.aiP-W,: 60 and 45
cents on the dollar, were stipulated in the
law providing for their issue, to be paid la
greenbacks. The Gazette has heretolore,anf.
donbt, hereafter will, demand that they
be paid in gold. This would increase the
amount to be paid by the taxes of the peo
ple, greenbacks now selling -for seventy-
three cents on the dollar, in, gold, to two
thousand' - eight -hundred and - sixty-two

sand dollars ($1,865,730,000) more than the
bondholders paid for thenu'"l : ; '; ' '
Now apply the doctrine of the Gazette
the bonded debt of the Republic. . That
sheet demands that a man owing bis neigh
bor a'debt, contracted during the present
greenback era, only pays back the .amount
that greenbacks would cost in gold, at the
date the debt, was incurred, or specie pay
ments ordered. "This, it argues, should be
done, because it would be equity.,., But ft
refuses to parry out its doctrine when; ap
plied 6 tihe', bondholder.; although It fws's
covenanted that hit debt shoulJ be paid in

To give an adequate, idea of the Immense
sum of money wnict liaaical politicians
propose to donate to the bond holders, the
amount above stated, over and above what
the bonds cost, which - it is contended, is
justly , their due, and, must be paid, is: six
