' Righteousness Exalteth a Nation. "
To-dsy we welcome the periodic return of
our great anaual national festival . There
is something peculiarly beautiful and graud
in the spectacle of a whole nation to kindle
on the altar of common gratitude th9 ming
led incense of their praise, .and pausing in
its buy career of commerce to join inthe
song cf rapture a thaukful devotion to the
Giver of all good. The daily thanksgivings
we effir in our closets and at tho family
altar are generally in view of the daily
minor duties of life; but the psriodical
thanksgiving in wTiich all the people, from
Lake to Gulf, from the Atlantic to the ra
tine, are this day expected to unite, natur
ally enough lead to the contemplation of
public, national, and universal benefits.
As a nation we have much for which to be
thankful. During the year past we have
been blessed with the manifold and precious
fruits of the earth in their season; we have
been favored wilh health in our borders,
and peace in our dwell'inss: and we have
been crowned with the light and joy of a
pure religious fiith. Not in the spirit of
vain glorhus exudation; not with the idle
desiro of triumphing over other mtio-js; not
to fiter the subile passion of civic pride,
would we call jto mind Oiir national privi
leges; bat to q nckanour sentiment of unity
as a people, and to kindle a deeper gtaw of
devoti n to Dra who is the au'hor of every
blessing and the bastower of every mercy.
Amauglbevwied reflections which this
i)inete?uthceutury is in the habit of mak
ing on i's condition and us prospects, there
is o: common cpinba in which all parties
coludue that we live In an era of progress.
In ov-Kry department of life in its busi
! ess and its pleasures, in its belipfs and in
lia theories, in i'.s material developments
and in its spiritual convictions we thank
God that, in these respects, our progress has
been marked and rapid.
Changes analogous to these which have
lukeis place in the pst, and which we con

the rocky tablets of earth, and read the
unaxpectediStories of creation, wisdom, and
munificence, ante-dating tne birth of nun,
which have been .beard rom the sepulchres
of worlds long since ceased to be, or whether
we examine the dazzling experiments of
Davy, or Faraday's brilliant researches, or
toil with Bnckland and Lyell, land Hitch
cock and Miller, we would be ""justified in
declaring that, there never was a time when
scienca was more wealthy, or the stimula

And if, from such pursuits, we turn onr

oirange to say, wnat wa need nrst and
most ot all is better, civil government.
In our race for riches, and in our struzele
for the mastery of the continent, political
institutions have been lost sight of, political
duties shirked, political science sliuhted.
In looking after oar own iudividualin-
terest, we have overlooked the interests of
the country at larg?. We find the very
worst men, adulterers, bankrupts. liber
tines, have made their way up into the
bighest offices of tni3t. No doubt evils ex
ist. The causa of justice mourns the luke-
warmness of its friends and the audacity of
its foes. Corruption and swindling prey ail
to an alarming extent in the midst of our
high places. The lust of ofliM has pDison
ed the sweetest charities of life, and sapped
the foundations of public morals. An in
sane greed of wealth has usurped the place
o'qulet industry and modest content. The
ancient faith has given way to superficial
convictions and selfish practices. Yet we,
do not for a moment distrust the redeem
ing power of the liost High. We have
much for which to be humble, and yet we
have much for which to be thankful!
If such evils exists what is the remedy?
The text replies "RIgateousness exalteth
a nation." A coniamiunity is but an ag
gregation of individuals, and in proportion
to the individual impurity must be the na
tional impiety. Are tho individual citi
zens, then, growing mora pure in their
private hibits ? Are they true and just in
their dealings? Is their intelligence, if
they are becoming intelligent, directed to
wards learning and doing what is right, and
avoiding what Is wrong? Are they "making
progress in the fear of God, or is self the
idol of their worship?
That is one criterion of true progress.
National safety must hsve ita basis in in
dividual virtue; nor must wo seek for na
tional prosperity apart from personal right
eousness. We nave a remaiKabie illustra
tion of this principle in the history of the
Hebrews. So vital was this principle in the j
vie of theframers of the Hebrow Com
monwealth, thai on every side the people
were taught that allegiance to God lay at
the root of real prosperity, and that as the
spheres cf Heaven would fall Into confu
sion unless held in their plac3 by the at
traction of the sun, so the best arrange
ments for agriculture, commerce, education,
etc., would lose their virtue and miss their
aim, unless carried on in due reliance on
th great sovereign power of the universe
the one great source of order, prosperity
and blessing. Wi'h this agrees the senti
ment of Burke: "We know, and what is
better, we feel Inwardly, that religion is tho
bas's of civil society, apd the source of all
good and of all comfort."
It is the same wherever we go. All re
publics require the highest degree of virtue;
and had not the institutions of America at
the fi-st been laid deep in moral elements,
they must long since ceased to exist. Th
States of Greece , with their lightning-like
genius, interpreting and etnerealiziug every
science, art and philosophy, became for a
time the cyuosure of the nations, and tilled
the whole horizon of history with dazzling
radianc?; but in the course of a few ages
hey melted away like a moonbeam from
the bosom of the lake, just be ause they
lacked that virtue which is indispensable tr
ti e oiabiiity and permanence of all human
empires. And thus, too, perished the great
n-punlic of Rome. These successive civil
ZiUoas, like tje successive auimils and
.l.tn s A-hicii appeared upjn our earth in
titl'reiit geological epiens, had a definite
euui-33 to rau: tu origiu, au increase, a point
if culmination, a decline, and an extinc
iou. Si witn oih-r nations. America,
uke Britain, is a cjinnerciil nation, and it
h on her commerce aud her religion that,
she must depend for her influence among the
natMiis. It was commerce which gave to
Tvre and Babylon, aud her rival, Nineveh,
aud otbr ancient empires, their proud and
lofty distinction; but it was commerc3 which
had no counectioa with the divine and true,
aud hence their glory was but partial, unsat
isfactory and trausient. And now that their
grandeur has passed away, tince tho waves
of ins sai n w rod wtiere ones stood those
vast and in3gnificent pilac?a of wealth and
luxury, since the monuments of their com
mercial enterprise and prosperity arc now
crumbled into ashes, Americ is taught that
if tho sun of her prosperity is yet to ascend
and shine forth full orbed, not only must she
enjoy a free and unfettered commerce, but
that commerce must be sanctified. "Right
eousness exalteth a nation." The great prin
ciples of justice and truth must pervade its
commerce, its science, its enterprise; in these
is their stability, as well as their strength
and power, and if she continue faithful in
the maintenance of these great principles,
she will take the rank of ths more advanced,
and press into every field of act Ion. Her
eagle now etaudswiih unfolded pinion ready
to take her flight to the ends of the earth,
aud i i her upward, onward passage to scat
ter blessings richer and more precious than
drops of dew from tho wing3 ot the morn
ing. Intimately connec'.ed with the national
and scientific spirit of the age in which we
are living and of which I luva been spjak-i-'g,
is the tendency of modem thought to a
scientific treatment of religion. There can
0e no objection to this so long as tho treat
ment Is strictly scientific It i3 only where
tlio scientilic treatment is deputed from,
andmsro theories claim to themselves the
validity of scientific conclusions that we feel
disposed to urge that it is not science but
Modern science has certainly gained in

Investigations have received the applause of
the scientific world; and it bai now become
the question of the day how far their respec
tive theories and doctrines-are touad, aud
whether there ba any limits to their appli
cation. jjamarck, a distinguished French nation
alist, wa3 the first ot modern fccientificmen,
who adopted the theory that all vegetables
;.nd animals living on the earth, including
in to, are developed from-certain, original,
f- tuple germs. Lamarck admitted the ex
istence of God, to whom he referred the ex
igence of matter. But God, having crea
t: i matter, does nothing more. So that,
life, organisms, and mind are all the pro
duct of uulutelligent matter.
Some thirty years ago, a work appeared
anonymously, entitled "The Vestiges of
NASHlIimUHIQHaAIOJaiaCAN, SUNDAY, DECE&D3EE 1, 1872
Creation," ih'whicb thethsory of Lamarck
and its naUJurerwars .reproduced.
Alluding to the wofklt has been remarked:
"Brinrine together the Cicts of Geological
History, which indicates that our earth was
first peopled by plants and animals of a low
grade of organization, aud that there has
been a gradual -advance in that character
through successive epochs to tho present
period, and comparing these with the suc
cessive generations in development present
ed by the embryo Man, or of any one of
the more complex animals, the authoefttf
the 'Vestiges' suggests that the highest
forms of each kingdom are lineally de
scended from the lower, which have, with
the progressiva changes on the earth's sur
face, adapting it for the. residence of higher
and yet higher races,' evolved themselves
with beings of progressively higher and
higher organization, in obedience to laws
nrst impressed on them by tne ureator."
The non-rccentlon of this doctrine tho
doctrine of continuous uniformity of crea
tive action, as ODDOsed to occasional inter
ferences was entirely due to tho weakness-
or its basts. Tiio.author pad not mastered
the several departments. '61 Bclentldc re
search brought under review; mistakes
were made, and hence the theory was unan
imously pronounced, from tho scientific
point or view, an entire failure.
The new theory proposed by Darwin has,
ior the time being, a stronger hold in tbe
public mind. His theory may be said to
co two fold. First, ha accounts for the
origin of all pl.-nts and animals by the
gradual operation of unintelligent physical
causes, ana affirms that all organic beings
may be said to descend Horn some ono
primordial form. The main point in which
Darwin diners from his predecessors is,
that he starts with life, they with dead mat
ter. They undertake to account for the
origin of life by physical causes; whereas
he assumes the existence of living cells or
germs. He does not go into the question
of their origin. He assumes their exis
tence, which would seem of necessity to
involve the assumption, of a Creator. Of
course no one supposes that evolution is an
evoiuuon from nothing, it Is a law of in
tuitive intelligence, confirmed by all expe
rience, tnat every production nas a cause,
and that there must be power In the agent
acting as the causo to produce the effect.
oorar, tnen, as belier in a personal creator
Is concerned, there seems to ba no objec
tion to Darwin's hypothesis. As Canon
Kingsley says, "Wo might accept all that
Mr. Darwin has so Ieirnediy and so acutely
written on physical science, and yet pre
serve our natural theology on exactly tho
samg basis as thit on which Batler and
raiey lett it. inat we snouia nave to de
velop it, I do not deny. That we should
have to relinquish it, I do."
Hal bj far the most interesting part of
Darwin's theory relates to tho origin of the
human mind. His theory includes, not
me;ely the evolutionary origin of the bod
ily fr.tme, but, secondly, that tha human
mind, with all its capacities and character
istics, is the result of the development,
without a break, of the dim sensations of a
mollusc. In this there is a psychological
hypothesis implied, viz: that all intelligence
is absolutely homogeneous, and that there is
no difference in kind, but only in degree.
between tbe functions of the reason in con
templating necessary truth, and those of
the most elementary eense perception.
Such an hypothesis cannot be safely main
tained by natural science, unless it is sanc
tioned and sustained by philosophy. This
question, then, meets us at the very thres
hold of the inquiry the question relative to
the identity or ufnerencc In kind botween
tho higher and the lower mental faculties:
and the solution cf it, one way or the other,
is au antecedent condition to accepting or
rejecting the Darwinian hypothesis.
Prof. Huxley is not only a distinguished
naturalist, but a popular lecturer and
preacher of "Lay SermouS;" and thus has
become a representative man among the
advocates of tha new form of Materialism,
Materialism is that system which ignores
the distinction between matter and mind,
and rerers all the phenomena of the world.
whether physical, vital, or mental, to the
functions of matter. There appears to be
several different opinions among living
sceutific men as to tbe relation between
vital and physical forces. There are some
of whom Dr. Carpenter is one, who deny
that there is auy sucn thing as vitality or
vital force, and who hold that physical
fore-;?, such as light, heat, electricity, etc I
are controlled by a force of a different kiad
called, "a directing agency." But it has
been conclusively proved that without tha
acceptance of an independent vital force
outside the matter of organism, there is no
explanation tor operations with which we
re daily familiar. I here are others, who,
adopting a different view, maintain, If there
be any diuirence it cannot
ba known. Thus Prof. Huxley, although
few years since a firm advocate .
of vital, as distinct from physical force, in
his discourse on the "Physical Basis of Life"
takes the opposite ground. The argument
is this: Just ?s the operations of vegetable
life are due to pbysicil forces, so all the phe
nomena of animal life are due to the same
causes; and not only are the oparations of
vegetable and animal life due to physical
lorces, but the Bme is true or all mentsl
operations. If this argument from anilogy
is valid in the one case, it is valid in the
other. All known effects, according to this
new doctrine, are ascribed to material
causes. Spirit is declared to have only an
imaginary existence. Spontaneity is an
absurdity. .Necessity Is inexorable and
universal. fLay Sermons, pagts 155, 158,
157 Now, I venture to say, that the his
tory of human speculation does not fur
nish a more explicit avowal of Materialism
than the statements I have now adduced.
Yet Huxley eays he is no Materialist. In
one sense this is true. He is not a Mate
rialist because ba believes in neither matter
nor spirit. Ha avows himself a diaclpleof
Hume, who taught that wa kuow nothing
but impressions and ideas. He avows his
fellowship with Herbert Spencer,
the fundamental principle of
whose "New Philosophy" Is, that all
we know or can know, is, that force Is, and
that it Is persistent, while force itself is ab
solutely inscrutable. This blots the soul
and God out of existence, except as those
words indicate an unknown fo:ce. If
Huxley be not a ma erialist then I am un-
able to discern the differeuca between his
language aud thai of tho avowed material
ist. He siys, "in itsslf it Is of itttli mo
ment whether we express the phenomena
of matter in terms of Epirit; or the phe
nomena of spirit in terms of matter; matter
inay ba regarded as a form of thought,
Uiought may be regarded as a property of
matter each sta'emeut has a certain rela
tive truth." Huxley then seeks to evade
tho seemingly inevitable deduction from his
premises by representing both matter and
spirit as mere names, and namas too not
for real things, but for fanciful hypotheses.
The identity of matter and spirit is, in
ehort, represented by him as consisting
in this, that the existence of both is merely
nominal, or at least merely ideal. Hence
Huxley's materialism is only another form
of idealism. And as materialism leaves us
no God to reverence and trust, no Being to
whom we are responsible; and as it denies
any conscious existence after death, it can
be adopted only on the sacrifice of the
higher attributes of our nature; and Its
whole tendency must be to demoralize and
1C is thus apparent that the tendency of
modern science is to ignore a personal God,
and a superintending Providence. And by
ignoring theso Prof. Tyndall and other
scientific men have announced that prayer
must be necessarily inellicacions. There is,
they say, a force that pervades and moves
the Universe, and there is man, all whose
thoughts and acts' are under the law of
physical causation. Under such an hypo
thesis, God is a force, and prayer au absur
dity. Petitions add'essed to a force can
have no efficacy. Wo do not pray to the
lav of gravitation. But Christianity as
sumes that there is a self existent, moral
Being, the Creator of all kings, whose will
is supreme. With tha twhef in a God
omes tho act of prayer. Prayer is answer
ed; and yet the stability of tho Universe is
not disturbed. Gcd has established fixed
modes of acting, and He regulates the world
by every physical law of tbe universe.
These fixed laws are under the control of
their Author, and ara made to accomplish
Hi3 purposes. It is a great mhtaka to sap
pose that because law reigns, God does not
reign. Behind every law there is a controll
ing, regulating mind. But it should be said
injustice to Prof. Tyndall that he does not
absolutely deny ga central Agent. "Tho
theory that the system of nature is un
der the control of a Being who changes
phenomena, in compliance wi h the prayers
of men, is, in my opinion," says Tyndall,
" a perfectly a legitimate one." It is not,
indeed, a fact, but admissible as a theory.
If he admits the possibility of euch a thing
wherein, then, lies his objection? What
he demands is verification, by soma natur-
al-experiaien4. A single experiment In. -I

realms, the same kind of evidence he finds

Thanksgiving day cama and tha author
of this notica went. For b.3 anxiously
looked forward to a vehlculary engagement
Which he had with affection aforethought
and delioeralely planned. Owing to the
hone disease no vehicle could be obtained,
which fact being ascertained, the young
lady and your correspondent agreed to make
a thanksgiving call on a fow old friends at
.Kentucky, aud hence we took tho
6:30 St. Louis train Thursday. At Spring
field we met tho Nashville bound train;
owing to an atmospnerlc pressure .of 32
degrees upon the liquid compound of oxy
gon and hydrogen in the tank, despite the
decomposition of coal with the evolutions
of light and heat, there could not be ob
tained enough of tha aforesaid compouud
to give Enfflcient elastic aeriform fluid, re
sulting from a pressure of 212 degrees to
turn a wheel or make a puff.
While I went out to getan item concerning
this, she thought, accidentally of course, that
our train was minus its .supply and imme
diately left the car .and took, a seat In tbe
coach for Nashville, being so induced by a
number of persona who lived at Springfield
getting off our traiti, which sjou sUrted;
I also started, but having to shake hands
with a friend, had scarce time to get aboard.
I stood on the platform, waved adieu to my
friend, and by tha time-' a hundred yards or
more of real estate was between us, entered
tbe .coach, she was not there, and for that
mis-sing form of grace, I searched every
where, even among thp, luggage in the bag
gage car. 'T was then soma one in the cru
elty of truth, as subsequently ascertained
by description of physique and personal
apparri, informed me. that "she
got aboard tbe Nashville train at
Springfield," "and 'twas ,then I sighed
for the touch uf a vanished hand. It could
not be hlped, it was an accident, and I
proceeded onward peculiarly sad and
wrapped in the folds of my own dark over
coat. The train rolled on and soon I was
landed at Henderson, Keutucky. This is
Is one of the most beautiful cities of tho
above State. Its location is on a level over
looking the Ohio river, which offer3 a long
and delightful water view, especially when
tha ray of morn gleaming through the sil
ver misted veil falU joyously on tho waves,
or when evening's splendors rest on tho
broad bosom of the waters, now calm and
Eerene with scarcely a heave from its soft
low murmurs. The streets, running at
right angles and gravelled, afford
fine avenues, lined with good bus
iness houses and elegant mansions
the latter usually having large yards,
shrubbery, flowers, and shade trees. At this
point the Nashville, St. Louis and Chicago
railway touches the river and goes thence
to Evansville, Indiana, by water twelve
miles distant. The company have erected
large dumpers for unloading coal trains, the
coal which is. dumped on to boats, barge3,
etc. At present Major Speers, who is the
road master of the" Southern division of the
lino from the Ohio to the Cumberland, is
actively engaged laying back tracks to
the water, and will complete, the improve
ments by tha 15th cf December, at which
tjma the cars, whether frieght or'passanger
will ba run'on the company's steamer and
carried to Evansville, where similar im
prnvements are in progress of completion.
This wLl avoid the usual delay of
transferring passengers and unloading cars,
reaucmg tne time between asnvllle and
St. Louis. Tha company will then run an
additional through train, diawing; magnifi
cent Pullman sleeping cars, to St. Louis
and Chicago.. This train will leave in the
afternoon late and arrive at St. Louis to
breakfast. We understand the completion
of the gradings and switches at the abova
named place? will be celebrated by the rail
road company, which will run a special ex
cursion train from Nashville to St. Louis,
from whteh cities, as well m from Hender
son, Evansville aud other points along the
road, distinguished guests and friends will
be invited by the officers. The- regular
packet of tha .company, Fayette, a
tidy side-wheel craft, Is being repair
ed aud "done up" generally, and wo
presume the artbtic beauty and the more
useful features now being added to her look
to a grand ball, whose presiding genius will
ba Capt. Perkins, commander of tho wave
curler. This gentleman, so favorably
known in river circles, has charge of the
river department of tha railroad company,
whiah has a courteous and ablo officer that
will but promote their interest.
The woods south of Henderson, and in
several places along tho road.
are yet burning. Saturday night
a fire broke out in the woods north
of Madisonville, and at one time threaten
ed the town with the fate of Chicago and
Boston. Msj. Gordon, with a few determ
ined men, fought the fiery fiend, and after
hard work arrested its march of ruin, sav
ing thereby many a home from tho flimes.
Maj. Gordon and tho3a assisting him de
servo praise for their efforts, which acted
as an incentive to other citizens who found
It necessary to combat the fire Sunday
night, when it again approached near tho
t jwn from tho South. Tha town authori
ties speak of purchasing au extinguisher.
The epizooty has appeared at Evansville
and also is among tbe horses at Henderson
and Hopkinsrille. Iddications are that no
section of the country can escape its visita
tion. It is feared by Mr. Atchison, Super
intendent of tho St. Bernard Coal Mines,
that the mules used there may ba attacked,
though such would not produce a total sus
pension of mining, as one of the mines tan
easily be carried on without them. Is is
stated that a mule w lch had been working
a thousand feet under the ground where
veiled in darkness for one year without see
ing the light of day or breathing the air of
heaven, had the disease very badly at tha
Houssalc Mines. It is reasonable to believe
the epizooty is not confined to this earth.
Nov. 29th, 1872.
In 1831 the General Synod of tho Presby
terian church of America drafted a pastoral
letter to the churches which was soon af
terwards read from every Presbyterian
pulpit in the land, In it occurs the follow
ing, bearing distinctly upon women preach
ers; "We witness with pain in some parts
of the Christian Churca the introduction
of females to load the devotions of a prom
iscuous assembly, a pactlca which wo be
lieve to b i not onlv contrarv to tha trnrd
of God but ruinous to the benign Jand per- S
manent influence of pious femVes in the
Church of Ouri3t.
iuss Anna &edijwick, daughter of
Hon. Ciiarle3 B. Sedgwick, of Syracuse,
was in Portland and Chicago at the lime or
the great flre3 in those cities,and,singnlarly
enough, she was in Boston, Sunday, and.
witnessed tho awful conflagration there.

They are having a lively time in thp Cov
ington (Ky.) Postoffice. Jesse JR. Grant,
father of the President, Is the postmaster;
but, owing to his inability through sickness
iu luwsiiu w uis uuues, X4r. snadiord Eas
ton was, last January, appointed special
agent, with lnstructibns from the President
to discharge "all. the duties of postmaster,
and ba held responsible for the management
of the-oflica. Mr. Easton took possession
during Mr. Grant's illness, and at once or
dered several needed improvements and al
terations. When tho venerable postmaster
recovered sufficiently to visit tho office, ho
soundly berated Mr. Eiston for the expen
diture he had made, and upon the latter re
monstrating ngainst tho violent epithets
showered upon him, Mr. Grant lifted his
cane and struck him. After that, matters
were quieted down for a time, although Mr.
Easton has repeatedly expressed his deter
mination to resign rather than be subjected
to Mr. Grant's irascible temper. On Sat
urday last the quarrel broke out afresh. Mr.
Grant renewed his attack upon Mr. Easton,
demanding his withdrawal from tho office.
In an interview with a reporter of the Cin
cinnati Commercial, Mr. Easton said he did
not think Mr. Grant would resign, although
the President wished him to do so. In re
sponse to an inquiry as to tha probability of
the President removing his father, Mr.
"Beally, sir, I do not know. I hardly
think tha President will remove his father,
though ha may. He is a very peculiar
man, when he once gets his head set, and
ten times aa obstinate as his sire. He
would doubtless prefer that the old gentle
man 6hould remain in ofllco until the expi
ration of his present term, as I would, if
In could be made to behave himself. But
his retention is now become a public scan
dal, ami no one, I am convinced, feels It
more than the President. For my own
part, I am under heavy bonds to . do my
duty, and must remain, however unwil
lingly. I am certainly in a most uncomfor
table position, and would gladly escape from
it if I could."
Tha following letter was written by the
President when Mr. Easton first tendered
"Executive Masbiow, Waehdvgtox
Citt, Sept. 4, 1872. My dear Mr. Easton:
I have just received your letter inclosing
your resignation as Special Agent in charge
of the Covington Postoffice, with iha reas
ons therefor. I beg you to suspend action
in the matter for the present. I regret very
much that my father should atlempt to in
terfere iu your management of the office. 1
shall wrlto him at once to delist, and to
send me his resignation, as I am satisfied
he will never again be competent to dis
charge the duties of the office. Very truly
your friend, U. S. Grant."
The Indianapolis Journal, a Grant organ,
says: "But the old man, like his son, Is
obstinate, and refuses to resign. Evident
ly his early training was neglected, or he
wouldn't give Ulysses so much trouble in
his old age."
"Is that marble?" said a gentleman,
pointing to tha bust of Kentucky's great
statesman, recently, in a New York store.
"No sir, that's Clay," quietly replied the
American travellers have, It is said, in the
last two years, purchased over 4,000 "quills
with which Lamartine wrote Jocelyn."

The Boston fire is beginning to shew Its
unfavorable effect on the New Tork mar
ket. Previous to tha fire Boston was a
great market for discounting mercantile
paper, and frequently, when money was
close and dear In New York, and paper
passed slowly among the note brokere,
Boston cpitalists would step in and take
considerable amounts of paper classed as
good and prime. Since the fire this busi
ness has been almost entirely stopped; and
htrein lies one of the main reasons for tbff
pressnt condition of the discount market.
Again, monoy la dear on call here, and
capitalists yield largely to the tempting
rates ofljrcd daily on stock collateral..
Thero Is no doubt that a largo' amount of
capital is now being daily employed on call
which usujlly finds Ita way Into mercantile
paper. All the indications st present are in
favor of a closa dUmnnL Truirlrn nTtn t,n
.i.i.. .1 w U.O
remaining dayB of the year. Th8 month of
uecemoer always brings with it many
mercantile settlements which require liberal
amounts of money, and then again, toward
tho cioee of tho year, financial Institutions
gather In their resoorces preparatory to
large disbursements in January on account
of interest and dividends. The present
paper money of the country is just now
suffering a severe strain, having not only to
perform its ordinarv and r.Tnlr
of moving the crops snd assisting trade, but
'u gigtuin; cpuuusiivu movements,
and to replace largely the property de
stroyed by fire.
