We sro glad that thc Democratic
committees of Virginia have, generally
speaking, not attempted to say how
the Federal patronage in their several
counties, cities, and districts should be
distributed. If a committee of that
sort ia allowed to have any sort of in?
fluence over thc appointing power in
the matter of apportioning thc various
federal offices, it will in effect have all
the influence, and soon dictate all ap?
In writing on thin subject some
weeks sgo we said thst if to thc county
or city comniitteea was conceded tue
right to recommend parties for office,
the congressional-district committees
and the State committees would he apt
to claim like powers and privileges, and
we asked what was to become of the
infuence of congressmen, which bas
heretofore been so potent in the matter
of assigning round men to square places
and square men to round places. Well,
to-day we have an answer to our ques?
tion, lt cornea to us in thc form of a
special telegram from Washington city
to the Charleston A'ctrs ned Courier,
aad reads aa follows :
Wahhinoton, March 1.?A con?
ference of the South Carolina delega?
tion with reference to the distribu?
tion of Federal patronage was held
yea teni ay in Colonel Aiken's com?
mittee-room. Senator Butler explained
Uie reasons for inviting the conference.
Senator Hampton and others expressed
their views on the subject. All depre?
cated the idea that the consultation had
been regarded in the light of a caucus
nt which the spoils were to he divided.
Why may not the Democrats in Con?
gress from Virginia hold a conference
*'with reference to the distribution of
the Federal patronage" in this State,
and thus bead otT any local committees
Hunt have had under consideration thc
proper method of distributing the Fed?
eral patronage of their counties or
cities, though these latter committees
inay, like the South Carolina congres?
sional conferrccs. "deprecate the idea
that their consultations should be re?
garded in tbe light of a caucus at which
thc spoils were to be divided "v
It is said in the attempt to justify the
action of these local committees that
tliey only propose to provide for a pro?
per distribution of Federal patronage
so far as territory or locality is con?
cerned, since they have not named and
do not propose naming the persons who
aught to fill the various offices. " In?
crease of appetite grows by what it
feeds on,1' aud the inevitable conse?
quence of allowing the local commit?
tees to make a territorial distribu?
tion of (iovernment patronage will
be the endeavor on their part to dic?
tate the personal distribution of that
patronage. Obsta prinripiis??'with?
stand the beginnings "?is the only safe
motto for tbe people to act upon. Power
is ever stealing from the many to the
few. Surely a committee which has
power to say that this county or that
city shall have such and such appoint?
ments will not need to extend its juris?
diction very far in order to be enabled
to say thia mao or that man shall have
such and such an appointment.

To-day will edd another striking vin?
dication of American institutions to tho
many that history records ; will afford
another and a crowning illustration of
the fact that thc virtue that is inherent
in the intelligent masses can be trusted
to triumph in the end. The inaugura?

?s perhaps it has never l*ren proved, the
wisdom of the fslhers of thc republic,
lt! must convince the world that the
theories of these men. which so many held
to be utopian, having been tried as by
fire, have in the ordeal been crystallize.!

they established has withstood a strain

ernment of thc people, by the people,
and for the people. And the lesson of
thc hour is so plain thst he who runs
may reid. It teaches us never to de?
spair of the Republic. It teaches us
that though passion may dominate for
a nhilc nnd corruption run riot for a
season, the star of American re?
publicanism is fixed. That star
may be obscured for a night, but
it is none the Ibm immovable; its
light is still there, lt is nono the
less a central star in the galaxy of gov?
ernments, and it is only a question of
time when thc winds of reaction and of

clouds that may envelop it. Bj Ka light

The Charleston News and Courier
ss) s :
" When silver takes the place of gold
as a measure of value, thc prices of pro?
duce and manufactures will become pro?
portionately bicher, and producers and
manufacturers who arc in debt will find
it correspondingly easier to discharge
That is consistent at least. It agrees
with the theory that silver is less valu?
able than gold. Thc prices of wheat,
corn, and almost every article, are so
Iom- that the producers are crying out
against any further depreciation. Just
think of thc immense depreciation of
values indicated in the fact, stated hy
thc silver men in Congress, that although
we have in thc last twenty years paid
hundreds of millions of dollars ol' the
public debt, yet it would require twice
as many bales of cotton to pay what is
left of that debt as il would have re?
quired to pay thc whole of it in 186">.
That is contraction for you. and con?
traction with a vengeance.
In 1805 wheat was worth $1.85 per
bushel. At that time the public debt
was i little less than 92,700,(H10,UOO.
Clearly, therefore. 1*410,000.000 bush?
els of wheat would have paid the public
'debt in 18ti5. Non- the public debt is.
say, $1 JW.OOO.OiK). That is, we have
paid off a thousand millions of dollars
of it. Wheat is noa* worth 85 eents a
bushel. Clearly, therefore, it would
take two thousand millions of bushels
of wheat to pay now the debt that re?
mains after we have paid off one thou?
sand millions of dollars of it!
Truly, these are alarming figures.
They show thst thc people sre suffering
from ruinous prams reealtiag from
ruinous contraction. Such figures speak
for themselves. They need no comment.
They exhibit in their true light all the
false astseitioiis of Wall street about
the stsndard silver dollars.

** Mr. President and gentlemen, they

of a careful examination, that they were
held in equal value and with hut imma?
terial variations, which were easily ad?
justed throughout the entire past?cen?

1872. What was done in the past
can be done in the future! Allow
me to say also that I am one of those
who believe in an abundant currency,
if it be a sound and stable currency. I
would not fix the amount of the cur?
rency for idle capital that takes no risk-,
but rather for active capital, which
takes the chances of loss as well as
profit. I would not lix it for the bond?
holder BO much as for the business?
man. It should be arranged foi those
who carry on the bMbbBMM and do tin
work of the world, and it should be aa
arranged as to encourage them and
stimulate to new enterprises. A scanty
currency, however good, hinders busi?
ness and checks development. [Ap?

deut and gentlemen, that if the hading
nations will concur on this subject the
time will never come when both gold

wants and energies of the world. For
eighteen hundred years there was not a
nation or a statesman that proposed the
general demonetization of either of these
metals, lt was not intimated during
eighteeu hundred years prior to the
year 1850 that they were too abundant.
Since 1H50 a French political economist
proposed to demonetize gold because
of its great production in California,
but he was not listened to. Let us re?
member, in considering this subject,
that the world grows in population and
develops its resources faster than these
metals increase. I can imagine the fail?
ure at last of the mines of both gold and
silver; I cannot imagine the failure of
tie population and industries of the
world. If the leading nations of Un?
earth are willing to do it. and will con?

so that silver shall be as good as gold,

[Correspondence of thr Klclimontl IMrpateh.]
St,\ i nton, March lt, 1H85.
Our neighboring city of Waynesboro'
was roused from its slumbers night be?
fore last by an explosion of dynamite
lh.it shook the sleepy valley of the
South river and echoed from the back?
bone of thc Blue Ridge, " peak answer?
ing peak the rattling crags among."
The history of the affair, gathered
from parties n-ho attended the exam?
ining trial of those implicated, is as
follows : A colored man named Henry
Reeves owns and lives in s house upon
one of the streets of the town ; which
house had an L in the rear, which
BeavUI had let to two colored girls
who were in service as a lodging
place. In order that his place might
retain its respectability he lied con?
tracted with his tenants that good or?
der snd strictly moral conduct were to
be observed by them and their visitors.
Finding slier a time that the two women
were entertaining two negro men em?
ployed at the maiigim.se mines in the
neighborhood Reeves turned his ten
snts adrift. Threats were made by the
two girls and one of the men against
Reeves, and on the night mentioned
dynamite was exploded under thc sill of
the outer door of thc room on thc lower
lloor facing the street, thc room in
which Reeves had been sleeping. For?
tunately on this night he was sleeping
in an upstairs room. The sills above
and below on the door were to some
extent rotted, and did not alford the
resistance they would otherwise have
done, and thc damage was to that
extent reduced. Thc door was blown to
atoms, the floor near it splintered, and
the splinters driven into the plaster?
ing of the room m all directions. A
hole about two feet in diimeter and
two feet deep was Mown in the ground,
thc front of the house was shattered.
the bed overt ur and, and the windows
of this house ami the house next to it
on the saine side of thc street, and of a
house opposite, were smashed. Reeves,
who was above in the room just over
this one. in bed. says he was asleep,
lind when he caine to himself he Mas on
the floor with his hands full ol' ash'-s.
Ile must have been blown out of beti
across the room and into the fireplace.
The pattie, have been arrested and
await the action of a grand jury. This
is our first dynamite case, and I cannot
foretell the action of ajury of Augusta.
but if they are of the same temper ol'
the ORS inst dismissed, who have found
verdicts in five cases of felony within
thc week, it will go hard with thc pris?
