The current number of Ibe North
American Rtvietv is an exceeding- ,
Interesting one. In it Mr. Wen
doll Pbl'lipt and the Messrs. Bland ,
aad Poor discuss the currency ,
question. Mr. Phillips interlards ,
his obetrvatious with much parti -
~--aaa ranoor. He evidently looks ,
' upon tbo Southern people as a sort
of Gorgon. He greatly laments
that the Republican party did not ,
oarry out to the end a high-handed
' polley with the South. If Mr. Phil
ilpa'a Idaaa had governed tbe poli
cy of tho United States a number
of Northern proconsuls would
■are ruled over the South with an
abeolute away, and the negro
would have been the only factor in
the politics of that section. This
ta tome respects great New Kug
lander seems to forget tbat tbe
•trends of a eabl* may be pressed
beyond their tension, aud that a
breakage might have resulted. To
employ another simile, drawn
from the gospels of Matthew, be
overlooks the formidable fact that
an edifice, strong and broad and
W*U welded from turret to founda
tion atone, may be built upon tbe
shifting sands, and that the winds
aad waves may come and leave not
one atone of the massive edifice
upon another. The whole people
of the North would uot have sus
tained a relentless and heartless
policy of repression in the South,
deliberttely announced, In set
Urms, to bo for lhe advantage of
tbe Republican party, aud the
leaders of that party, though they
committed many mistakes, were
wise enough to know this. They
went as far as they thought they
could without incurring the risk of
the boomerang returning to knock
over the thrower; ami, iv spite of
all their cutiniiifr, they ure pros
trate to-day front the very excess
Ot their harshness to the South.
To have carried out Mr. Wendell
Phillips's programme to the
aweepiag extent to which he out
lines it would have been simply lo
have cut short the duration of
But, while we think that Mr.
Phillips's party notions are wrong,
We regard the Ideas which he de
velops In respect to the national
finances as wholesome auiljust. He
oarreetly says, in substance, that
cur wbole fiscal policy, for the past
fifteen years, has beeu molded at
the diotatiou of the Eastern rich
men. They have so warped the
legislation of Republican Congres
ei as to increase the put chasing
p>wer of money. They have lelt
the Weat and South panting, like
lite thtrsty wayfarer ou a desei t, iv
a constriction which threatens as
phyxia. The Wett aud South
need a voluminous currency to de
velop their immense resources.
This the selfish lvtst has withheld
from them. Mr. Phillips sees, in a
reasonable liberality of greenback
issues, and in having all currency
that of the government, a remedy
for tho paiuful commercial and
fiscal evils which now afllict the
Uaited States. In Ibis we think
he is entirely right.
After presenting this view forci
bly and, to our mind, conclusively,
Mr. Phillip) again become* a poli
tician aud a prophet. He predicts
that, through the union of the
West and South on this vital issue,
j* the next President aud Vice-Presi
dent will bo Democrats, the former
a Western soft money man (Mr.
Phillips probably has lleudricks in
his mind's eye) and tho latter a
Southerner In sympathy with this
programme. Wo entirely agree
with Mr. Phillips that the next
President ami Vice President of the
United States will be Democrats,
though we should not like to com
mit ourselves us to what section
they will hail from. We should
not be In the least whit surprised
if they should prove to be the very
men who were elected in 1576, but
Who were cheated out of the posi
tions to which the people had
Having given a cursory re
view of the scope of Mr.
Phillips's article, we will next
a bird's eye view of
Aland's valuable contribution
-nncy discussion. Mr.
< now the famous au
'ver bill. After quot-
Haniil' m's prefer
rd of gold
s of the
he fact that
.v the country,
plttslists own six
s of this sum, and
jblate und commodi
jountry are of course
measured by these figures. If the
eight hundred millions are de
creased to six hundred millions the
values of all this real wealth
shrinks in proportion; and, by an
easily understood commercial law,
in almost a geometrlaal ratio. A
house which before could be had
for $10,000 cau then be had for
$6,000. As the greater part of I lie
measures of value iv the United
States are now represented by gov
ernment bonds, from which an as
certained and fixed income is de
rived, the capitalists, under such a
system of finance, would be able to
sell out about every debtor in the
United States aud buy in his effects
at about half their value, or less.
Mr. Bland denominates the con
traction of greenbacks aud the de-
monetizatiou of silver a con
spiracy on the part of lhe rich
creditor classes to make their
debtors pay them two dollars for
one of debt incurred. If, in addi
tion, they cau set up gold as the
standard, the Injustice is increased.
Finally Mr. Bland disetisees tbe
demonetization of silver from a
historical stand point. lie re
gards it as having been treacher
ously brought about at the iustatice
of Eastern capitalists. There, also,
we agree with Mr. Bland.
Ou the other hand, Mr. Poor dis
cusses certain statistical statements
of Mr. Bland with regard to the
comparative value of gold and sil
ver. Wo should judge that Mr.
Blame's article had beeu submitted
to Mr. Poor in ptoof slip?, as they
both appear simultaneously. He
scouts the idea of silver having
been demonetized as the result of
a conspiracy of the Eeastern capi
talists, and holds that the act of
Congress, introduced in February,
187?, was well advertiseil before its
passage at a subsequent session.
His paper is the fairest and strong
est argument wo have seen from
the standpoint of the capitalists;
bu ( , notwithstanding his special
pleading, we canuot help concur
ring iv the view taken by the
Messrs. Phillips aud Blaod. No
observer of the course of legisla

were iv the ascendancy iv the Con
gress of the United States, espec
ially in the ci.se of the infamous

At the afternoon session of tlie

Slate's evidence, was called. This
witness was, ou motion of the Dis
trict Attorney, discharged from tbe
ludictment and from custody on the
ground that he was a necessary wit
ness iv the prosecution of the
other defendants. As the direct
evidence of the two men agreed in
its general outline a synopsis of
the latter only is given. He said
he knew T. W. More. He is desd.
Sprague came to Curlee's one night
where I was and said he was going
to take a little ride and wished me
to join in It. I Afterwards Church
ill came to me ou the same er
rand. He said the night wss fixed
and the place of rendezvous set.
Curlee was there and asked who
were going. He named Sprague,
Hickerson, Brown, McCart and
himself. He said the signal at the
rendezvouz would be a lew whistle,
4c. Coining to tho facts of lhe
killing he said :We found
Sprague, Churchill, McCart, Lord
and Hunt there. Sprague said
there were more to com* and we
waited an hour Tor them. Sprague
then said, "Let us go," and those
who had horses mounted the others
going on foot. Sprague, Churchill
and myself went behind the barn
and Sprague set it on fire with a
turpentine ball. The people in
the bouse wero aroused hy
the fire, came out soon to
the barn when they commenced
turning the horses loose. Someone
shot and Fergusou said to More,
"Run or you will bo killed." He
stait;dtoruu and some one shot
him in the leg. Sprague and
Curiae followed him aud Churchill
also ran to where More had fallen.
Sprague and Curlee were shooting
at bim as he was lying down, sup>
porting himself ou one hand. He
fell ou his back and said, "For
God's sake men don't shoot; you
have killed me already," or words
to that effect. The crowd then
started oil, when Sprague sang out
that he could uot walk and for us
to come back or he would shoot.
Some of tbcui helped him away
and we got to our horses. Tlie
mounted ones followed behind
those ou foot to brush out the
tracks. The witness described the
arms carried by different members

from Pendleton, from.l. 11, Keeney,

Umatilla. Tlie dispatch is dated
the 14th: Arms arrived all night.
Will not Issue them here unless
forced to do so to protect ourselves,
but bold them to ship them to La
Grande the first opportunity. The
troops under (.'apt. Miles drove the
Indium into tbo foothills near
Cayuse station. They fought four
or five hours at long range in the
valley. Finally tbe troops and
volunteers made v charge and
drove them four miles to the hills
and captured several horses. In the
field our volunteers did splendidly
and the officer in command com
plimented them highly. Quite a
number of Indians were killed, but
just the number could not be ascer
tained. Nothing is doiug to-day
but scouting. The Indians bad not
moved up to late iv the day ami
they are watched very close.
Tonight Col. Bernard's cavalry
arrived ou the Umatilla river, near
the other commaDd, aud will move
on tho Indians, it is supposed, early
in the morning. Col. Sauford is
coiniug up from La Grande and is
supposed to be near the Indians on
the Meacbam road. Should he at

Throckmorton is here, nnd his
presence has a tendency to quiet

er is wounded in two places, but
not fatally. George Coggius's
body was recovered, badly mutil
ated and in such condition that it
had to be buried here. Nothing
was found on his person but a few
papers. His clothes were taken
off, laid on his breast and burned.
One finger, upon which be had a
ring, was cut off. The stage com

It appears by these figures (hat
the House appropriated twenty
eight and a half millions less Ulan

raised the bills of the House more
than fourteen millions, and that
tlie laws as pasßed exceeded the
House grants by nearly ten mil

Mr. Randall commenced the work
of reducing public expenditures,
the Senate struck off ten millions
from his budget of economy, and
now they have repeated that act of
