Take In proof of this, dental the ex
ample of France. On the lilt li of .Inly.
1870, now nearly six year ago
tho war between France and
ttermaiiy was commenced. It was ended
on the 10th of May, 1S71. The circuki
lion of the Jlank of France, at the time
the war began, was . Kd,rM 10 and the
specie in hand $220,00(1.000, about ninety
per cent. In August, 1570, tlie hank sus
pended Fpeeie payments, and its notes
were made a legal-tender. At the end of
the war, within a year nfie'r t lie Mi-pen
vioii of (specie payments, the hank had a
circulation of SilJ.tHHMioo and a
specie reserve of only .! 10.000.000, about
twenty-five er cent. On November 19,
1873. the circulation was irrvatct. lieing
$002,000,000, and the spcie reserve $ I ;?,
(100,000, i.r about twenty-four per cent.
In November, 1S71, gold, as compared
with these notes, wa l a premium of
two and one-half per cent, but shortly
alter declined to par, and has remained
there ever since. In November when the
gold premium was two and one-halt per
cent., the circulation had rt;.clied 4W,.
03J0J0. On the 1st of February, 1872,
Ihe circulation exceeded $40,000.000 and
the premium on gold was only one and
one-half ier cent. In a very
suort tiiuo after this the circu
lation was Increased to $010,000,000
and the premium on gold disappeared
entirely, since which time the legal-tender
notes of the bank of France, bearing
no Interest, and not redeemable either in
fact or nominally, have been on a pat
with gold, and may remain so, if appear
and are to be trusted if experience is
to be believed until the crack of doom.
We will not undertake to ex
plain this mysterious fact, and
do not urire it in defense ot
the financial heresies of our liuancial anti
precious metal lunatics. We otter it as
one of the peculiar facts in financial his
tory, and as a flat contradiction of the
assertion that par paper must be paper
like the long-ago notes and circulating
receipts of the Banks of Venice and Am
stcidam, paper backed by a gold
reserve eipual to its face paper
not only nominally but actually
redeemable. In our apprehension, pa
per of the Venice-Amsterdam
kind cannot !e obtained in tins year of
grace, 1870 ; and, if it could, a circulating
medium like that of Franca would be
preferable. Such n circulating medium
we might have if tho financial coin

we fear we were mistaken. We have

The only difference which causes any
bitterness Is that among the New York

rather warm when enthusiastic partizans

side that there are a number of delegates

There is no Indication as to how the re

There has been more or less discussion

The scene at the Southern yesterday
was one that defies description. The im

the day by delegates, visitors and local
politicians, who thronged the corriders
and filled the various State headquarters
on the main and second floors, discuss
ing excitedly the Tilden or Hendricks
register in the political temperature.
Arrivals by the morning trains from
the East, Wefct and South were so nu

rooms nnd corridors, adding to the con
fusion, uproar and excitement, and fis
cally morning hour wen- reached ere a
lull set in.
The Hendricks headquarter were
thronged all day by delegates in his in

Indiana candidate, attired in blue jeans,
was very outspoken iu Hendricks' favor
and railed alarmingly at the position as-
Mimcd by the Tildenites. In this he
was supported by a powerful body of
Eastern men who lost no opportunity to
assail the Tilden party, and much argu
ment prevailed. A sore leellng was ex
hibited at the action of the Tilden men
on Saturday evening iu disturbing Mr.
Williams' speech alter the Waltcrson ser
enade. They claim that an unfair advan

use or their rooms lor a liiilcn demon

Governor Palmer It wa" not exactly
a Tilden triumph, but I think he w ill get
half the delegation. His forces were
splendidly organized, while the Hen
dricks and Davis men were not. The
Hendricks men played a bad game in
the convention. Three of the delegates
at large are favorable to Tilden, and they
are strong men. There is no firmer and
more reputablo man in the Slate than

Gov. P. That is a very delicate ques
tion for me to answer. I am uot here to
express preferences, lor 1 am not a dele
gate, but am simply a deeply interested
spectator ; but my candid conviction is
that Mr. X uden will be deleatcd. ihe
nomination ot Hayes and Wheeler by the
Republicans destroyed tho availubility of
Tilden. The reason is this : His nomi
nation would bring the "bloody
shirt' into tho canvass, and put
the Democrats on the defensive. This
would be fatal. The Democrats don't
want to have explanations to make
to demonstrate that their candidate
was loyal during the war. Mr. Tilden's
record at Chicago, at the 1 emocratic
convention of 1M3, would be charged on
him and ids party by every Republican
speaker froui Maine to California. It
makes no difference whether there was
anything In it or not, people will IuIk
about it. I would shut the month ot
every confederate Democrat by throw
ing the issue just where they have i.o
power to reply. If Blaine had been the
Republican nominee, it would have been
very dillcrent, for the Republicans
would have been put on the defensive,
but Hayes uud Wheeler ure personally

then, is no denying it. It is now admit
ted that slavery was wrong, that tho gov
ernment was right in suppressing the
retielllon. The Democratic party cannot

closed, he was not in favor of perpetual
i lg its memories, but sought to heal the
fearful wound. As n military man he has
few equals. His executive abilities are
unquestioned. As a civil ollii'cr at. New
Orleans ami in the Babcoek case at Chi
tago, he evinced the moderation ol a wise
and experienced jurist. Whether on
the lield or in private lite or Iu
any station to which he has ever been as
signed, he has shown a purity of charac
ter worthy to take place beside thai of his
nameiake, John Hancock, the tirt signer
ol the Declaration ot Independence. His
nomination would put tin Democratic
party on a new plane one above all war
memories except those which might be

with a notice, but its utterance is not
available lor practical purposes. We 1 1 ly
upon the St Louis convention to do
us jiwtice, and it can well alhml to. as
the insertion of such a plank as we desire
would secure all the Pacilic States to the
Iieinoerats without a doubt.
"Is the Pacific slope united on this
Mr. Koacli Entirely so. Oregon is
not as immediately allcctedas we are, but
feels the evil and "sees the danger. No
vada drives out the Chinese and forces
them back upon California, but sympa
thizes with in heartily. On that ques
tion we are a unit. We are also iu favor
of the nomination of Mr. Tilden, be
cause we consider him a hard-money
man (though currency questions do not
trouble 11), because we U-lievo hiin to
represent tho reform sentiment of the
country, and because he is with us on
the Chinese question.

Of all the local journals, tho Weil lit he.
Post is the only one which effectually
support Tilden. This may seem to
many a somewhat bold assertion, but it
is none the less true mid easy to pntve.
We announced yes
terday, plainly and freely, under w hat
condition we would support him. These
conditions, wo admit, are somewhat
strong, but as friends of Tilden, we are
obliged to make them so. If this man
is to he elected ho must havo the
votes of till the independent voters.
These he cannot receive unless he clearly
and beyond peradvciiture com?s forward
as a reform candidate. For this reason
the platform upon w hich he is placed
must be a platform of decided reform and
lie Is accordingly Tilden's best friend
who wishes him nominated under the
most favorable auspices, who does not
want him used merely as a sign, but who
desires Mm to bo put forward us a true
reformer one iu Miort who wishes to
carry him to victory with all honor and
in tho best company. This, however, we
of the local journals alone desire.

Towni's, the 'aiim IIi ii.kiin, or any
other patty, tin-re is no "wranglinj;"
in Jackson county. We are willing to
admit that elloru have been made to uet
u) u wrangle, and to impress upon the
people of the district outside (f Jackson
county, this fal.-c and unju-t idea. We
reassert, there is no wrunlinff. 15ut
upon the other hand, there exist? U l ween
Mr. May hum and Mr. Albright, of this
county, the best of feeling und friend
ship. With these two jrentlenmn
the canvass la conducted upon honorable
principle!1, prompted by the best of fccl
m,'s. AO man can truthfully say either
ol these gentlemen ever indulged iu
words that could be construed ungentle
manly, or even colored with a tendency
toward a wrangle. These gentlemen
will go into tht convention and with all
their might and power support tho nom
inee. Mr. Albright, It is true, is a most
indefatigable worker. Tills Mr. .May
ham and his friends ui this county con
cede, und at the same time.Mr. Albright and
his friends concede that Mr. Ma) nam is
mi equal won.cr. though "a new man"
in a senatorial contest, it makes him
none the less desirable, nor cuts no llgurc
with a man tried and proved to Ik true.
Tlie upshot of the whole matter is "im
ply this. There is an effort bcin made
outside of Jackson county to get up the
iinpressiuu that a wrangle doci" exist nnd
Jackson county will go to tho .Senatorial
convention divided, thereby creating a
chance tor some aspiring individual, as
sisted by conniving friends to be taken up
nnd nominated as a compromise man.
