The Currency Question.
Editor Herald: Thai there Ih a
growing disposition throughout the
State in favor of the adoption of tlio
National currency, is clearly evinced
hy the tone of the up-country press
and (lie people, and that tins disposi
tion is liable to ripen into action dur
ing the coming winter is also, to.some
extent, foreshadow cd. There are those
in this community', too, who have im
bibed of this opinion so intemperately
thai they have contracted a species of
greenback intoxication, ami declare—
almost in terms -that it is purely a
question of one side, and that no ra
tional man would stand forth, and
purely on the ground of commercial
policy or political economy, attempt
io vindicate our gold and silver cur
rency system. We are told that it is
a suicidal policy on our part, to com
mercially array ourselves against the
rent of tha Union, by rrfuniiifj the nc
tiwutt corn nrj/; that our course is uii
nat in til aud un-American, and that
we not only shut out Immigration and
hence the Inseparable capital, but that
we are likewise driving out capital al
ready here, to seek Investment where
it will become nominally greater.
Now, .Mr. Kditor, I tUKe it for grant
ed Unit this is an open question, and
as such, is entitled to face discussion;
and while I see upon tin surface many
good reasons why we should think fa
vorably of Ibis rising heresy, I am
convinced that beneath will lie found
tbe true reasons why we should not
adopt it.
In a general way it may seem a
plausible argument that we should ac
cept the national currency a-the cir
culating medium in our state, and so
acknowledge ourselves a member of
tbe Union in weakness as well as in
strength, in adversity as well as in
prosperity, This much, 1 say, sounds
plausibly, but beyond that it carries
with it no element of conviction.
There is no logical reason why, as a
sovereign Htate, we should regulate
our currency to conform to any sys
tem outside, whether national or oth
erwise, and I cannot recollect an in
stance in Which I lave observed the
often-asserted argument to the contra
ry defended on its assumed ground,
lis champions depend for success on
Ihe fair subtlety 01 their position, and
if this is brought into controversy, we
liikl them next entrenched behind
Dome collateral and decidedly specific
issue. Hut these collateral matters
will fall into their appropriate places,
in ih.« ~,iorv«. <,f tins communication.
That our currency system is the
safest and the best lor tlie people of
this Stat*- is, 1 think, susceptible of
demonstration; hut thai its apption
lion Is not open lo very severe entieisni
is by no imans true, ami just there is
where die remedy might ue profitably
applied. Our "hit" system is simply
lluam'oUß, ami lacks only the necessa
ry acts of llitimltlution to constitute it
robbery, mul Indictable. Hut this
abuse might l»c si< easily remedied by
the adoption of the nickel two-cent
and llvc-ceiil pieces, that I will pass
it without further comment. That we
keep out capital l>y an "exaggerated"
standard ol currency la not true to
common sense. Our currency is not
exaggerated, bid it la the basis that
gives ton nondescript security its only
value. In other words the greenback
is a medium which with borrowed
powers, seeks to usurp the dominion
of that which is the parent of its
power. Now, surely it is a logical ar
gument that direct value is us profita
ble as,and much safer than indirect and
cnnplicatcd value, or that gold as a
circulating medium should impart
every advantage, with the additional
advantages of directness and stability,
that the same commodity will impart
when brought to bear through an un
certain treacherous and depreciated
security—for gold is still the represen
tative of value whether it conic to lis
as specie or in tlie verdant tints of a
greenback. Again, it is not oiircurrcn
cy hut it is the application of our sys
tem before referred to, that discoura
ges the capitalist who looks liitlier
ward tor an opportunity to invest.
I cannot believe that any man would
hesitate to invest his money in Imsi
ness here purely on the ground that
his funds have nominally decreased;
for the man who has sold bis fWuH
in national currency, and obtained
|BQoin gold, has still the satisfaction
of knowing that not a cent has heen
lost hy the change, ami lias besides,
the gratification of feeling thai his pro
perty is no longer liable to lie reduced
ten to twenty percent hy the slightest
national coin plication.
Nominal value is an argument too
childish for thisagc. it remind* one
of the Indian' bargain who refused to
exchange his buckskin for a sack of
Hour unless the trader would agree
(hat each article was worth #10. The
beat answer to this charge is, how
ever, that the man who invests in
California under our system loses
nothing, and knows be loses nothing.
Now suppose we atlopl the national
currency what w ill he the result as to
our pre-existing obligations. The ob
ligation of our contracts must be pre
served inviolable, for this is a consti
tutional provision. Independent of
any legislation this would therefore
remain unaffected. We would there
fore be compelled to go into market
and purchase large quantities of gold
for the jwynieiit of such obligations,
(hereby creating a speculative neces
sity, and compelling the State to take
its* chance* of being fleeced by the
graduates of Wall street academy as
often as an obligation became due and
payable. Suppose then such forced
speculations should prove unprotitn
ble, that another black Friday, or any
other of the thousand and one causes
which affect games of chance, should
arise, our state would be forced from
its proud position into a condition of
bankruptcy and financial ruin. Such
arc the chance* against us in accept
ing a depreciated currency, which act
could possibly bring no good result,
and w hose most earnest advocates can
support on no better ground than the
Los Angeles Daily Herald.
apparent good taste of a state accept
ing the condition of the Uuiun at large.
But this suggestion comes too late.
P. W Doom:it.
Fisk & Hatch's Failure.
The failure of this linn was reeeivetl
iv the Hold Rooms in the follow ing
manner:
When the President's gavel dropped
again their tongues did not slop w:te
glttg. Rap, rap, rap, went the re
sounding woollen hammer.
"I want you all to understand,"
said the President, when partial quie
tude luul been gained, "that I don't
call on you to order without meaning
it. Moid your tongues!"
The brokers laughed a little at this
and then grew soberly expectant as
the President bold up a note ami pre
pared to read it.
"Owning to the wide-spread want
of confidence caused by the failure of
well known linns," rea l the Presi
dent, "and to advances made by us to
railroad companies, from Which we
cannot Immediately realize, we are
unable to meet the heavy demands
upon cs, and are compelled to an
nounce our suspension."
The brokers breathlessly awaited
the reading of the name signed to (lie
note. The perfect silence was In strik
ing contrast lo tlie previous uproar.
After a pause, the President read on:
"Although we have no unsettled
business with your Board, we take the
oppotHiftdty oi thus announcing the
the facts.""
Again the brokers, and with more
impatience, awaited tbe name.
"Yours, respectfully," concluded the
reader, Fish & Hatch."
A prolonged whistle from somebody
was the lirst audible reception of the
startling news, and it was exactly ex
pressive of the general astonishment.
The announcement of failures had
been expected, but none of a linn
Which had been above the taint of un
soundness. —a", y. sun.
Another Arizona Murder.
Just us the citizens of Arizona were
feeling secure iv the enjoyment of
their scalps, Del-Che and some of his
followers steal away and prosecute
successfully their business. On Fri
day, the Igth, J. B. Townaend, of
Lower Aqua Fria was killed by the
Apaches, not far from Dripping
Springs. The deceased was a Texan,and
had killed during his six years stay in
Arizona thirty-six Indians. The Miner
thus speaks of liitn:
Fear was a feeling with which he
was entirely unacquainted. Brave,
even to rashness, be never faltered,
even when alone, in attacking any
number of Apaches. Relatives, friends,
till, had frequently cautioned him to
be less rash in his onsluuiihts on the
foe, but it was not his nature to so de
port himself, and he died, as he lived,
the bravest, most dauntless white
man that has over trod the soil of Ari
zona.
And thus concludes:
"Revenge is sweet;' forgiving have
we heen to the Apaches, but, in God's
name; hi the name of John B. Town
send and hundreds of other noble
martyrs, let not this last crime be for
given the murderous, lying red-brood,
who have robbed us of our bravest and
best, and kept us poor as the poorest
peasants of RUrope. Remember the
widows and orphans the wretches
have made, and strike them wherever
and whenever opportunity otters.

Heivwitb I certify thai Miss Josephine l.lnd-
Icy has been a student in my department of
the University for rive consecutive terms, via::
from September, lH7n, to April Id, 1K72. During
this time site studied the French, the Spanish
and the Herman languages, obtaining always
the highest marks for proficiency and attend
ance, her averuge ereiilt mark for five terms
being 07 per cent.
On entering the University, Miss Llndley
iMissessed already such knowledge of the
French and Spanish idioms as to Is- able lo
speak them with ease, fluency, correctness,
and a pure pronunciation.
She may now he considered thoroughly ftl
miliai with the theory and philosophy, as well
as with the application of these two tongues;
and she may safely he recommended as a can
didate of great promise, for teaching the
French and Spanish languages.
