Republican .newspapers, commenting
on the opinion of Chief Justice Clime on
tho validity of tho legal-tender act, can
readily seu why a debt contracted to be
paid In coin should not bo paid Jn the de
preciated paper currency. Such notion
.gives the credllorleis than lie lent. It
violates tho contract'and Is altbgethcr
The samu' newspapers can understand
Tvliy debU made since tho pannage of the
legal-tcnder net should be paid In cur-:
reucr. To rcqulro coin would requlro
from tho debtor a much greater amount
than he received, or than he agreed to
pay aud would be altogether cruel und
'outragOQUs, ' . '
All this Is so plain tiiatlteb'ms Vo bo

Ishness to statu Jt, aud yot, clear us It I,
and truo beyond nil doubt or cavil, the
v.eryjuowspnperw iKasouiug thus cannot
see why Uio.fiveftweidy bonds ought to
bo paid incurrency", What cleara'thelr
preceptlons iu the one instance darekus
them in the "other.
The bonds i were Issued since tho pas
sage of the legalitender act. Treasury,
notes were, received for them. The con
tract was to pay them in treasury notes,
and this ugrcement was so explicit that
there could bo no misunderstanding
concerning it. What justice Is there in
paying them in coin? Who will nn
.swor? Exchange. '
Wo will,' At tho darkest' moment of
ourcountry's history, when rebel hordes,
(u tho flash, of victory, litfriaced our
borders; when another 61 iSw"pr dni I s c d
to, demolish our governmental fabric and
render our greenbacks as valueless as
ihe paper upou which they wpre printed ;
when the government was In a financial
strait that compelled her to offer ten ier
cent, and unheard of exemptions to,
-those wlio hud hoarded iter money then
didn't the gfelluut und patriotic capital
ists of tho country "come dpwu( with
their cash?' What If they did dole out
ontf'dollnr td our needy army ami exact
aocurlty for two? Tho beautiful fafth
'they exhibited In tho Indestructablllty of
of our government, should be remem

It you cau place auth glorious patriots

In .tho'jfleld, on the needy wldo ft jlio
gave up her only son, a sacrifice to her
country why then return their loan, re
cognize their beautiful faith, In "depre
ciated rags." if, those. ijnselllsli, capital
1st are no' hotter than, anybody.: .else,
why then adhere to the cold letter of the
contract, and return what they gave.
They only ask 100 cents for what cost
them 40 cents, und it will be a sorry day
for our government when It refuses to
pay the bondholders this trifle as a
recognition and reward of their pa
triotism und 'beautiful faltU'Mu tho

and on good white paper), at a cost ot,
perhaps $150. The Chicago report makes

The St. Louls re'port Is made up wholly
of Information relating to tho conduction,

'Chicago hoard" cannot -build a school
house to accommodate seven hundred
children for less than eventy-flve or
eighty thounand dollars. The' St. Loul8
board can do it for $42,000. Tho most
costly public school hutue in St. Louis

it Is said, tbattho Isgal tender net was

The particulars ofaead caie of nib
taken identity conies to us from the town
of Hkaneateius. It weems that a bhort
followed tho. death of a woman of ouoa
tlonable ehaructor, whoso remain) were
also laid in the Haaie Hold by kind humid.
Tho funeral or tho orrlng ono was atten
ded a few week9 hIiico. A lew good Ka
marltanH laid her to rest. They did not
pay particular attention a9 to tho placo
wherothe tainted one should He. It hap
pened that alio was hurled near tho wlfo
of '.'Dives,'' and the poor and rich would
bnvq quietly slept their last ileep, side
hy side, had not other event taken place.
Again the angel of death visited tho
rich man's elegant dwelling, and this
lime his arrow pierced a shining mark.
A much loved and beautiful daughter
was stricken down, and again the father
mourned the n&s of another loved one.
Sho'waB burled besldo her mother, as the
father supposed, Owing to the Inclem
ent aeaaou of the year no headstoue had
been raised over tho graves of the mother
or daughter. Tho friends of tho fallen
ulster did not design to mark her grave,
but were willing her namo should bo for
gotten. After tho liut funeral had taken place,
tho father began to question in his mind
whether or not Lis daughter had been
burled in tho. proper pUco he?lde her
mother. He examined tho locality care
fully, and llnally concluded that the wo
man of questionable reputation slept be
tween his loved ones! ho matter pray
ed upon his mind to such a degree that
it gave him no rest day or night. Con
tldorable time had elapsed, so that there
was no opportunity for ascertaining, by
reference to the bodies, whether or not
Huoh'uu.error had been made. Tho futh
ef finally procured, a spade, and proceed
lng,to tb.ii, burying ground avowed hit
of bad character- Ho did eo, and throw
the body and coffin outside the burylug
ground. The neighbors were Ipcenved
at this action, aud gathered about the
remains tho next day. Qno of them
happened.-' to. pck up the plate of the

that the Jetteis were, qulto unintelligible.

finally ho was ablo to distinctly make
out the num6. thereon, and behold, tho
