CLEWS ON FINANCE.
New York, July 18, 1800.
In Wall Street, affairs continue un
settled, in sympathy with the disturb
ed condition of politics. The revival
of exports of gold has also helped to
encourage speculative selling. The
ordinary mercantile demand for bills
is comparatively nominal, and the cur
rent remittances are mainly for the
liquidation of loans made for the car
rying of securities. We are now on
the verge of conditions which will in
iluence the exchanges in our favor and
put an end to gold shipments for some
time. Already, advances are begin
ning to be made against the growing
cotton crop, and foreign bankers show
.more confidence in loans of that char
acter than in tho last two seasons. In
deed, thero is a manifest improvement
in the disposition at London to extend
credit to our various forms of commer
The result of the St. Louis Conven
tion has prodrced a distinctly favor
able impression upon the foreign bank
ing interest It appears to have been
received as establishing a strongly pre
ponderant probability that, at least
for the next four years, tho Govern
ment will be controlled by the friends
of the gold standard; which is viewed
as warranting the hope that the silver
danger will ultimately be overcome.
The humiliating political exhibition
made at Chicago has no doubt in some
measure checked that recovery of con
fidence for the time being. Not so
much, perhaps, because it is regarded
as threatening the success of the sound
money cause in the coming election, as
because the speech-making and the
platform appeared to disclose a state
of popular discontent and a violence of
party attitude which might be of the
utmost importance did it truly repre
sent the real sentiment of the masses
of the West and the South. On this
account, there has been a cessation of
tho London buying of our securities
since tho conclusion of tho Chicago
Convention; and the foreign attitude
is likely to remain that of reserve un
til the course of the election canvass
'affords fuller means of estimating the
significance of the outbreak of socialis
tic demagogism which has so taken
the country by surprise.
At the present moment, the feeling
excited by these Chicago performances
is much less that of concern for the
fato of tho gold standard than one of
alarm at the seeming spread of hostile
sectionalism, of socialistic sentiment,
of deliberate repudiation and of popu
lism in an exaggerated form. Not a
iew people1 have drawn from these
revolutionary planks of the platform
the most pessimistic conclusions as to
the future state of the country; and
that sort of alarmism has found its
sympathizer, and is Used by tho pro
fessional ''bears" for disturbing con
fidence. These however uro mainly
tho conclusions of shallow observors or
hasty judges of events; who have not,
fulrly weighed the question whether
tho millions qf. loyal citizens of tho
South and West have degenerated to
tho type of reckless revolutionists pic
turcd in tho lurid resolutions of tho
Chicago platform. Theso alarmists
have not seriously weighed tho alterna
tives whether such a ,mass of people
have become suddenly transformed
into red revolutionists., or whether tho
men who got themselves surreptitious
ly chosen to represent them us delegates
have sought to mako them such for
their own despicably selfish piuposes.
If the, sentiment of sectional and class
discontent is us unanimous among-tho
millions of Western nnd Southei n vot
ers asllt was among the,3elegatcs,from
those States, it is inconceivably btiange
that the fact should have been so little
known, and should have been so little
expressed through tho representative
press. Such a sudden transformation
from order-j-especting citizenship to
the bold anarchic attitude expressed in
the Chicago platform is something of
which we are not prepared to concede
our fellow citizens of other sections to
be capable. It is quite conceivablo
that the embarrassment arising from
the general decline in tho prices of
farm products may have created dis
content and led to a demand for inis
taken remedies. But, among Ameri
cans, discontent and repudiation and
anarchism stand very widely apart;
they do not join hands in a day; nor
are there any grievances for which our
people haye oyer been wont to seek
satisfaction through robbery and ruin.
Our politics and our politicians, how
ever, are less pure than our people.
There are fow things which they al
low to stand between them and power
or spoils. If they have lost the con
fidence of the people, they know how
to raise false issues by false representa
tions in order to win the support of tho
masses most liable to be misled and
most susceptible of being excited by
inflaming issues. Pre-eminently that
was the game played in tho Chicago
Convention The leaders of that gath
ering had no case on which they could
appeal to the sober judgment of the
country; they therefore created a ficti
tious one, expressly constructed to ap
peal to the masses of our least educat
ed population. They boldly resorted to
the desperate expedient of raising a
campaign of passion and revolution;
and the Chicago platform is the out
come of that daring scheme. Probably
few w ill be more surprised at that out
come than the ery people whom these
delegates were chosen to represent.
No doubt, many of the farmers and
planters will be captured by a pro
gram appealing so flatteringly to their
cupidity; but it may surely be safely
assumed that there is a much larger
proportion who will resent tho gross
imputation upon their loyalty and
good citizenship which this platform
casts in their faces. For one, I am far
from being able to admit that this
Union is made up of men who thus
suddenly can be tempted into traitor
ship to its sacred bonds. 1 haye too
much confidence in the morals of
Americans and in their faithfulness to
their flag to believe that they can be
thus misled, until their own votes have
openly convicted them of lack of
fealty. Hkyri Ci.fcws.

HIS GREATEST SOLICITUDE.
Tempest Tosocd Mnrlncr Wanted to Hear
from tho Game,
It -was during tho terrific December
pales of a year ago that a Yankee
scliooner flying signals of distress
Bailed into tHe bay of Gibialtar.
Almost immediately, says Youth's Com

a friend, put off from the Cnlpe Bowing
club piers to visit her. As they clam

welcomed by the captain, a jolly Yan
kee from Plymouth, and by lira lather
gloomy crew. "Cnptain, nre you in
trouble? What can I do for you?"
asked the vico consul, at the same time
remarking that his friend had that
morning arrivod from New York on the
Tu erst Bismarck. "WnJ.sir! The Lord
knows we've hed our troubles, beln'
M days out o' London, an' no nearer
Kew York than this. Two of the lads
went over the side in "that last blow,
an' our topsails went when them spars
did. This pesky cargo o' chalk hes
