is described as a distinguished failure
The Chicago Tilbos denies that 31 1
W.'F. Storoy knew anything about
McOermicka call for tho Sherman
IIouso conference, or that ho know
anything about it until the report of
its action was published in the pubie
prints. "Ho" was," pays tho Times,

that the conference would or could re
sult in anything rnoro than another
repetition of tho 'time-honored' blun
detlng, by another effort to revive and
perpetuate the old orgauized contradic
tion, in tho shape of a call for n
'straight-out' and 'old-fashioned demo
cratic party convention.' Tho action
of the Sherman house conference was

wholly unexpected indication of n dis
position to get rid of tho old Bourbon

THE SLAVE TRADE IN AFRICA.
About a year oxo, tho British tov-
eminent congratulated itself and the
civilized world on the entire supnres-
sion of (tic slavo trado'in the Basin of
the Kilo iu Control Africa. This
achievement was believed to ba duo to
the effort oi Sir Samuel .Baker, the
noted British traveler,', who, iu,nu expe
dition through Central Africa, had
coen the sway of the Khedive extended
to tho eaualor ami n invtmimnnt at
back's, bt did uotdcolaro lIToppositiou
,lo ametalioibasis for the curroucy. In
this congressional district, Mr. Urcbs
maao nis.own piauorm,ana was ciccicu,
not bceause the people endorsed the
cheap money doctrino, but because
they hated the negroes mid Mr. Munn,
his competitor.
Wo do not gay tLat tho Dcinofir.itic
party has taken a wiso course on the
question ot tho publio finances. On tho
contrary we assert that it has not done
so; but in 1872, tho national Democratic
convention, in broad terms, dcolarcd in
favor of a speedy rcturu to specie pay
ments, and in Maino and other States,
sinco that time, the party has also mado
tho demand. It is drifting back to the
old, moorings.
Vc have 'no doubt tho best interests
of the country demand" tho restoration
of gold and silver as tho basis of the
currency of the country, and wo shall
hereafter labor to sccuro that end. If
we consulted our own personal, inimo
diato wishes we would advocate tho in
flation oRhe currency to an immense
volume. If greenbacks were made as
numerous as Confoderato notes were
during tho war, wo could get them
without trouble and use them to pay
our debts; but wo are satisfied the
policy would result in great disasters
and ruin the. country.
It doca not follow from this that we
favor a contraction of the currency.
We do not. Wo believo there is not too
much money iu the country, and have
reached without contraction. If this
can be done, tho moment the paper
currency of tho country became par,
gold and silver would flow into the cir
culation, and we would have more of a
better money than wo have now. What
we particularly deprecate is tho dan
gerous doctrine now becoming preva
lent in somo quarters, that paper or
leather or tin or any other substaaeo
can be made good mouoy by being de
clared legal tender for debts by the
government. This is a most perni
cious fallacy,and ought to bo strangled
in its infancy.
THE CONFLICT OF IlU'Eg.
The news from the South is of tho
most 4IstrtM3ing kind. The people of
that fte'otiou of the uouutry s;cm to be
involved in difficulties that threaten a
bo found among tho lato slaveholders, 1
havo mado possiblo tho condition of
affairs now existing iu Tcnnessco and
Mississippi, whero nruicd bands of
negroes and armed bands of whito men
are arrayed against each other, and
while women and children are crouch
ing in their homes fearful of tho future
dreading a lionlble death.
Wo do hope and pray that a war of
raaes in our country may not bo one of
the oveuts of tho future, but tho de
velopments of tho present hour indi
cate that this hope will not ho realized.
It is surely tho duty of every penon to
labor to avert tho calamity of such a
coullict. Whito and black should do
this. Tho patriotic white man will do
so; and tho intelligent negro will not,
surely, bo an instigator of a policy that
must result in tho injury if not annihil
ation of his race in America.

The Journal is uufortunato in tho

18C8 was in favor of a return to specie

To nrorcnt the dotilorablo condition
of affairs indioated by 31r. Jefferson,
has not been tho effort of many of tho
noonle of tho republic. Indeed, it u no
dpubt true, that the conduct of certain
whito oitizons has had a tendency to
hastcu tho ovil day of thu coming war of
races, at tho prospect of which human
nature has reason to shudder. Anu, it
is a lamcntablo fact, that the colored
peOple,possibly unconscious of the lear
fill results that will ensuu from their
conduct, have noted in a manner to
hasten tho timo of their own destruc
tion. Too mauv white men preju
diced and unreasoning have resisted
ovory effort that has been made by the
sagacious among their fellow citizens
to elcvato tho negro to educate inm
and to loach him hu duty as a citizen
of a frco country. Ttiey havo contiu-
