CLOSE OF THE VOLUME.
-This, number of the Journal brings to a
Series, it being the Thirty-Seventh jear of
its existence, tor the short tune it has
bee under our control we have received
numerous evidences that our efforts to pub
lish a first-class County Paper have been
appreciated. 4 It las been a matter of
gratification that so many of our patrons
friends we now claim to call them have
taken pains to speak.: of the . Jouruvl in
terms of the highest approbation. We
would be blind, indeed, not :-only to bur
own interest, but to the interests or the
town and county,. if we did not see in this
a substantial encouragement to redouble
oar efforts toward inprovement It may
not be out of place to say that we have
worked under the serious disadvantage of
Itiiug entire Btranger. to the readers of the
Journal, lit time, however, this will be
overcome, and we shall feel and speak not as
a "looker on herein Venice, " but with a
the interest of the "oldest inhabitant."
Newspaper work soon tenches one to break
throusrh the ice of formalitv, and it will
not be our fault if this journal isn't on
terms of reciprocal good fellowship with
more firesides in the county than it ever
was before. Next week the Journal com
ineuces, "with the new year, the Thirty-
Eighth year of its existence. To all its
subscribers, readers, and friends, it wishes

The time has never been w hen the Lusi
n ess of the country was transacted with
specie alone as the currency. Uusiness

notes' or greenbacks of a less denomination

the ephemeral scrip which is "now a poor
substitute for change. ; But to return to a
" specie basis, suddenly, as proposed by the
Secretary of the Treasury and advocated
bj'the ."New lork Iriuune and other abl
journals, would be disastrous. " The bulk
of private indebtedness has been incurred
with gold at from 40 to 80 cents premium,
and unless it is paid, upon something near
the gme basis of value upon which it was
contracted, it cannot be paid at all without
involving ruin of fortunes and a smashing
up of prosperous businesses. The debtor
class would be ruined, because they would
hare to pay the increased difference in the
value of the currency, should its volume
be reduced to approximate the worth of
specie, when they were least able to stand
the pressure. 'We suppose it is next to
impossible to determine with anything like
accuracy the amount of money required to
transact the business of the country; it
fluctuates; but an average may be struck,
and we can make the volume of currency
conform to this average. If it is too large,
reduce it; if it is too small increase it.
The business of1 the country grows fast,
hence the volume of currency must be in
creased accordingly. uur currency is
good enough ; in fact, the best that can be
devised ; but the trouble is that itis threat
ened continually with rapid and sweeping
contraction or unlimited expansion. What
we want is not a return' to specie basis but
a permaueiit financial policy, which, by
limiting the circulation of currency to the
amount really required to carry on busi
ness, will give it a stable value.
MISSION WITHOUT A RESULT.
A short time since the departure of
Gen. Shermak and Minister Campbell for
Mexico was duly heralded to the country
. as a matter out of which something extra
ordinary was expected to grow. The ship
that bore these distinguished personages
thenceforth became ari object of the es
pecial solicitude of the telegraph, and its
arrival at the different southern ports was
duly and promptly mentioned. We were
even furnished with a graphic description
of the gay and festive style of entertain
ment furnished by the Cubans to the Min
ister and Minister extraordinary in transitu
to the Halls of the Montezuuias. After
this, the usual muddle w hich envelopes
everything Mexican, seems to have befall

THE WORD WHITE.
Senator Scmsek has succeeded, notwith
standing the hearty ' opposition of bluff
Iks Wade, in carrying his point relative
to the admission of Nebraska, and that
Territory will not be admitted with the
word white in its constitution; or if it is,
it will be with the understanding that the
Legislature will erase it afterwards. The
dispatches state that the Senators from
Nebraska are now in Washington waiting
to take their seats, aud expecting to do so
within a mouth, nothing save the little
but significant word "white" preventing
them from doing so immediately. It is
to be! regretted that Mr. Wade, chairman
of the Committee on; Territories, should
hot himself have iusiated ujjod the perfect
equality before the law of all ri-.eu, regard
less 'of color,, in laying the political foun
dations of this new State ; but yet, no par
ticular backsliding from his splendid record
in behalf of freedom' is to be imputed to
him on this account ' The word "white"
should be erased from all our constitutions
and statute books, thus placing all men on
an equality. . Then, with a fair start and an
equal chance, let those who can, win
wealth, position aui reputation..

CONTRACTING THE CURRENCY.
The policy of contracting the currency, which
Mr. Seerctaiv McCulloch is now engaged in
enforcing, will, if carried out to its legitimate
e xclusions, result in tne prostration ol busi
ness sort the continuation of the present heavy
and onerous taxatiou upon the people. We
protest against it for two very important and
- 1. Because such contraction of the carrier
cy would decrease the national revenue fully
one-hair. Ihe present system ot currency,
stimulatirg the business of the country touu-
precedent prosperity, yields to the government
a revenue unequalled in its magnificent volume
by any known in the financial history of other
Lnatious. r And yet Jlr. aicUullocb is. waging
w-uT upon uc system wnicn yieius mem. rre
cisely as the currency is contracted, the busi
ness of the country will contract, and the re
ceipts from taxation will decrease. And if the
plans of Secretary McCulloch are carried out.
if the greenbacks are funded, and the National
Banks required to redeem in coin, the internal
revenue receipts, trom incomes, trom manulac
tures, and from every quarter, will be reduced
fully one-halt, in order, merely to pay expen
ses to make both enda meet the government
would be compelled to keep up, and perhaps
even increase, its present excessive, unneces
sary and burdensome taxation.
2. We pro tea against the contraction of the
currency because its infallible and inevitable
result will be wantot money, "hard tiroes, and
prostration of business. We have already allu
ded to the present unexampled business pros
perity of the nation. This prosperity is the re
suit of ourenlarged eytitem of currency. Not
only this, but Uie present -business of the coun
try rest, upon the present system of currency as
a tonndation, ana to disturb that system Would
be to pull out the very foundation-stones from
under our financial structure, . The present
system of contraction, which is at the rate of
four millions a month for greenbacks, will take
out of the volume of currency, by the close of
the present fiscal year, no less than seventy-five
millions. 7ju, ii mis ra; m reaucuou is per
sisted, in, greenbacks, becoming tcarce, will
have a higher value than national bank notes,
being legal tender for payment of judgments and
obligations, which the national bank notes are
not. But these legal tender notes are the basit
of the national bank circulation, and ss they
are reduced the banks will be compelled to re
duce their circulation, calling in their issues,
assarting and exchanging with other banks, and
locking their notes up in their vaults. Itis
obvious, men that tne contraction ol lue legal
tenders Will cut two ways. In other words, for
every greenback Hollar withdrawn from circu
lation, a dollar will be withdrawn from the cir
culation of the national bank-note issues. Con
