Low prices, good work and expedition
may be relied upon at this office.
We suppose we shall be permit
ted to Indulge iv some proviucial
amusement at the condemned cool
ness with which the New York
papers, aud the presses of the other
moneyed centres, discuss the silver
bill, the Matthews resolution and
all other propositions which have
any bearing on the national finan
ces. Tbey assume, with an icy
frigidity which smacks of the
frozen Adelia-land aud the North
Pole, that all their outgivings are
Gospel verities. With a prudence
for which we commend them, they
avoid argument and deal exclus
ively in et cathedra utterances.
Our memory does not to-day sup
ply us with a single solid, convinc
ing argument made use of by the
New York press at any stage of
this controversy. Every one of
their articles reads as though they
had argued the question fully a
week or so before, and that there
was therefore no need of fresh ar
guments. On hunting over their
flies for the last year one would
And no such thorough discussion
of the matter as they assume to
have indulged in. Instead, one
would encounter simply the same
.old,, bald assertions. The reason
for the absence of argument is
easily understood. They dare not
state the real motive which gov
erns them, which is a slavish sub
servience to the interests of the
bondholders at home and abroad.
The New York newspapers are re
ally abetting lhe New York capi
talists in their abject dcfereuco to
the Euglish moneyed power, just
as the New York exquisite is
learning to ape the "Aw, He-haw"
■uob who drives stags couches iv
England, aud who is so devoid of
intellect that he lias settled dowu
to a rivalry with tbe commonalty
iv their coarsest occupations.
The ouly approach to an argu
ment against the double standard
ever seen by us is that, by its adop
tion, we shall throw ourseives out
of gear with the rest of thu mon
eyed world. This is an impudent
assumptiou. Because, after a
■truggie of nearly oue huudred
years, England has succeeded in
getting hold of more gold than
auy other country, she desires to
increase its purchasing power
by giving it special value. The
bondholders of New York and
Boston also wish to he paid in gold
and they therefore desire to in
crease tlie purchasing or selling
value of the coin they would re
ceive for their coupon?. As a mat
ter of Tact, Prance is to day a
double standard countiy, and fully
five-sixths of the populations of tlie
world are on the same basl3.
Why should the United
States defer to the lead
ership of Great Britain
in money matters? Tlie fact is tbat
if we bad in this country to-day an
Intelligent and energetic spirit cl
we are ourselves the
natural leaders of mankind.
Through a blundering and imbe
cile control of tbe national admin
istration—a control more inter
ested in low jobbing and robbery
for the account of pot-house poli
ticians than In anything else—we
bave thrown our commerce and
ship building to the winds. We
trust to see the United States, iv
the next decade, mainly interested
in throwing ofT every sign of vas
salage to Europo even if, in tho
struggle, it were necessary to
wound the sensibilities of the snobs
of New York and Boston. As a be
ginning, the country needs the in
terchangeable gold and silver dollar
ofthe father* us the medium for
paying the public debt—without
the addition of a grain of silver to
the silver dollar. Tho debt was
payable iv such a double standard
when it was created, aud the bond
holders should receive no more con
sideration than tlio letter of the
bond. If the foreign bondholder,
in his disgust at not being able to
fleece us, wants to tret rid of his
United States bonds, let us, in
God's name, pay bim in silver to
the last dollar. If he wishes to
press us to the bitter end, when tbe
last sbeckel has been paid out we
can suspend payment, like v pri
vate debtor. But there is no earth
ly danger of his forcing us to tlie
issue. His true interest, when he
sees he can't "bull-doze" us, is to
oppose uo impediment to tli at nall
lenlum, towards whicli we are
happily advancing, assisted by the
tremendous international balance
of trade in our favor, in which
gold, silver and greenbacks will
rank at par. That would be prac
tical inflation, expanding the vol
ume of the currency seventy or
eighty per cent., and it would
bring around again tbe miracles of
production aud development which,
until 1873, made tbe United States
the marvel of the world in all lhat
relates to material progress aud en

breadth of California, even includ
ing the San Joaquin Valley, wo are
assured of crops. Whether tbey

they are a guarantee that every
one will have something. They
are a guarantee, also, that labor
will bo in demand. If, as is highly

San Francisco, Feb. 4lU.—ln
the seduction case of Leunie Mc-
Cormick vs. E. J. Baldwin, the
plaiutiffthis morning on the wit
ness stand mada such it • bowing of
herself that her counsel made a
proposition to the attorneys on the
other side for tlie dismissal of the
suit. She testified falsely accord
ing to her own evidence, claiming
that she had never beeu married!
Ou examination of the records of
the County Clerk of Alameda
county, it was shown that
she married David P. Rickey
on tbo 80th of October,
187". It also transpires that she
has been guilty of bigamy. About
2 o'clock the lawyers in tlie case
held a consultation and the attor
neys for the defendant, W. H. L.
Barnes and It. H. Lloyd, declined
to accept a dismissal, but asked for
the submission ot tho case to the
jury. At the close of the confer
ence the court-room was cleared
of all spectators, including lawyers
not engaged in the trial. A few
remards were made by counsel and
the case was submitted. The jury
brought in a verdict for defendant.

Washington, Feb. 4th.—Willis,
of Kentucky, and Coring, of Mas
sachusetts, the sub-committee of
tho House Committee ou Educa
tion and Labor, wero not quite
ready to report on the Chinese
question to-day, and, consequently,
all action ou the subject was post
poned uutil Thursday next. The
committee, however, coutiuuod its
Informal discussion to some extent
this morning. The prominent
opinion wus that, apparently, the
most expedientoourse to pursue for
the present will be to report a
joint resolution for adoption by
Cougress, instructing the President
to invite the co-operation of China
aud Great Biitaiu to restrict Chi
nese immigration and prevent the
importation of the coolie class to
this country; but, if the committee
decide to report such a proposition,
it will bo with tbe distinct under
standing that tho committee re
serves the right to recommend
legislative action by Congress in
advance of tlie desired result being
attained through diplomatic chan
nels, iv cue of serious delay or
threatened failure. Tlie disposi
tion of some members of the com
mittee to adopt tblicircumlooutary
method has been strengthened and
tlie prospect of success for direct
ing effectual legislation is weak
ened by tlie ill-considered action
of tlie California Legislature In re
cently adopting a resolution asking
ouly only lor treaty modifications,
through the instrumentality of an
International Convention. It is
hoped, however, that the councils
ofthe more far-sighted members of
the committee and the arguments
of the California delegation may
prevail before the meeting to se
cure the committee's recommenda
tion for practical aud quickly oper
ating legislative actiou.
Sargent's brief as to the powers
of Cougress to legislate In contra
vention of treaty stipulations was
delayed by tlio printer until this
afternoon, but copies have now
beeu placed in the bands of ull the
members of the Committee aud
will in due season be distributed iv
Congress. This brief, after citiug
in logical order and with great
clearness the numerous decisions of
United States Courts and Attorney
Generals, aud the utterances of
Wbeatou uud Vattel bearing on
tho question discussed, concludes
as follows: "We may summarize
this whole matter by saying that
the United States Government, by
virtue of its sovereignty, lias the
right of self preservation and it is
its duty to exercise its powers for
the protection of its people; that
protection includes the preserva
tion of its people from lulluences
injurious to their happiness by cur
tailing the necessaries of life or in
terfering with their laudable and
innocent enjoyment; that it is
bound to exereiso these powers for
the benefit of its own people where
necessary, at the expense of the
convenience of the people of other
nations and that Congress is tlie
possessor of the constitutional
power by the passage of a law to
abrogate or modify treaties. This
power has been frequently exer
cised by Congress and its action up
held hy the Executive and Judicial
branches of the Government. It is
not the purpose of this brief to
stato tha reasons why this power
should be exercised, but simply
to show that it exists. We assume
that the Committee have full light
upon the great evils ulllicting the
VVestern States and Territories
from the iutlux of the vast num
bers of Asiatics who do not come as
ordinary immigrants or with the
purpose of making the Uuited
States their home; wlioare alien in

seem to contain much that cau

rather calculated to sow the seeds

real and lasting peace. They de
stroy the Ottoman power in Eu
rope without substituting any
thing iv its place possessing guar
antees of stability. The smaller
States would receive just enough to
make them wish for more, while
Bulgaria would become little more
than a Russian dependency. The
restoration to tho Czar of Bessar
abia without a due equivalent to
Roumania, would make Russia
mistress of the mouth of theDauube.:
Thus, in the very preliminaries
themselves, thero is much that
must lead to discussion between
Austria aud Russia, and the
same must be the case,
though, perhaps, to a less
degree, with otber powers. Mean
time, Roumania has already an
nounced her claim to take part as a
belligerent iv tlie conclusion of
peace, the Minister of Foreign Af
fairs having issued a circular to
this effect. The Servians are
greatly disappointed witli the
