in getting that loaa. Only about half the

We predict thai H Or before the Urst day

discarded nnd all contracts in" tusiness af

notes are a legal tender it is true, and i7! 1
answer all purpwes of paying debts; ttiO de
preciation of paper money is greatly to the
advantage ol the debtor and to the loss of
tha creditor; and every ceut taken from the

it can purchase tee greatest amount.
Silver it more valued in -certain of tha ori
cntial nations, that it, it ia used exclusively
as a coia there; a hundred dollars in s'lver
will bay more there than a hunnted dollars
in gold, and the consequence is that the
world tor centuries Las been sending its
silver to those nations, atid nono of its gold.
Happy people tbey have nevr aecn a wild

spite of human lgislatre, find its war to

return to specie payments; let us create the
domand and the necessity for gold, and it
till flow in naturally, regularly and speedily.
Tlie stock ea hand b"ing comparatively very

tfcnt is, we have to atll products cheaper

What is the Government to do for gold to

'he Government to do with paper money

"SWAPPING HORSES CROSSING A
[From the Philadelphia Age]
This classic expression of Mr. Lincoln ht
been used by him on two remarkable occa"
oioos. At other times, ho lias brought it to
bis aid, as illustrating the policy of bis Ad
ministration. It may safely be said to be an
nxioui.by which bo is governed in his offi
cial conduct, "h is dangerous," he says,
"to swap lorses Crossing a river." One would
believe that so plain a proposition as this
figure of speech c ivcrj, would do for tbe ben
efit of his country. ' But this "God given Pre
sident" has not even the merit of consistency
with his own jokes. Let us see if ho has
over violated hi chosen and charmed a'ibor'

A RCMIMSL'ENCK ' OF "LoH MoNTF.Z- '
Some of our readers may remtniber a su
perb shawl pin worn by the famous Conottss
ofjXaridsfelt during her residonce in Califor
nia. It wat said to have been the first gift
of the ynnng English nobleman who ran
away with her from England to Spain.
The pin represents a dew-drop in a gara
niura leaf. The leaf is of very fine gold
siigntiy uasnea witn green ennnmel on the
inside. Thadewdropis represented by a
magnificent diamond. The inscription on
the plain Bid is "Tho only Star." The name
of the donor also appears. We saw Ihe pin

Extraordinary Attm?t to Commit Sci-

narrates tne following occurrence: An old
gentleman of ninety determined to commit
suicide. He ripped open one end of the flax
mattress of the bed he was lying on, got in
side, tied tho "tick" tightly round his throat,
deliberately set fire to ihe mass of flax into
hich he bad thxnst himself. For wtnt tf
the material didn't burn, and the old man's
life was saved, butouly by a timelv discov
ery, for tbe tightnesa with which be tied the
tick nearly resulted in strangulation.

Horrors of the Battle-field.
';lSlnc the' breaking out of the
rebellion, ft great deal, has been
said about the-horrorg oi' waf? and
much hai been written descriptive
of buttle fields covered with tho
dead and the dying.: iScenea'have
been' witnessed that well might ap
pal the stoutest hcrrU, and shake
thfl gtrougeit nerves. So much
concerning th 'fiercen. ss of t'ie war
has beeu written and published,
in tlie newspaper, that the
public mind has been made famili
ar with the stories of the deadly
strife that has been io long ragiug
in our land. The history of a
battle seems but the duplicate ac
count ot the one that preceded it.
The announcement that thousands
have been killed scarcely commands
a moment's reflection, and some
are even disappointed if they are
not informed ti at a day's fighting
has not resulted in covering the
field with the slain !
If any of our readers have failed
to realize the magnitude ot the
war, and its terrible consequences
to those who compose our armies,
let them peruse the following ac
count of the '"Dead in the Wilder
ness." It was written by Lieut.
Iiaily, of the 16th Kegiment, N. Y.
Volunteers, from Anandalc, on the
14th inst. lie says that after cross
ing the Rapidan, within a space ot
fifteen mile, tbihty thousand car
cases LAY ROTTING UPON THE GROUND !
and fifteen thourand of them had
bolonged to our army. Vht more
do we need to tell us of the terrible
fighting of Grant's campaign.
I did not expect, when 1 left you
Rochester, and promised to
write" you, that I should visit the
battle field's of the Wilderness
ap am at 'thu" early" period, if at all.
I arrived in camp on Sunday af.
tor leaving you, and was placed on
duty as officer of the guard; and
the dnv fo owinsr was detailed as
ah officer to accompany an expedi,
tion of 500 cavalry to guard au
ambulance train, aud rescue our
wounded who were vet in the
hands of the enemy, whom they
lind r accd under guard, and were
.removing to Richmond, as fast as
possible, nf priaonerH. We ftt rived
at the United States Ford, on the
Rapidan, Friday night, crossed on
Saturday morning, and at 10 found
a deserted hospital, whore the first
ihrco days of the battle were
foucrht. Within about a mile of
this tho dead armies had been
buried; but from this to the next
hospital (about fifteen miles) the
dead remain as deUh found them,
with the exception of their clothing.
Every Peace man in thought, if
ho is conscientious, will boa Peace
man in outward demonstration.
But he should do more than speak
at random in support ot his pritu
cinlcs; ho should attach himself
to sorao orgauizutiou where his
political individuality will become
part ot a system, aud thus more
directly tend to sirengtheu party
action. We can assure the timid
Peace mau that his party ;s strong
enough to protect its disciples in
the exercise of their right of free
discussion. When tbe Peace meet
ing in this city shall be held, there
will go forth over tho land such
an outburst of popular feeling in
opposition to this war, as will uni
nerve and paralyze the eunre com
munity of demagogues, contractors,
office. seekers and office-holders
who constitute the hope and tho
s rength of Abraham Lincoln.

How long can such fighting con

The conditiou of thiugs at tho

ever ready on the smallest pretext
to administer the exhiliratiug spec

not spoken for week till yesterday,

and has lost some two or three
thousand mon in a single iueffectUf

military operations afoot, we seek
ia vairfor inspiration or encourage

that the rebellion has demonstrated
it3 ability to hold successfully at

pie. We do not forget the adago
that when things roach the worst
they begin to mend, and that the
darkest hour is just before tho

to bo verified in our own case; but
we speak of things Bimply as they

hopeful conclusion as to the pros.

Tho supporters of Lit' coin con
stantly charge that the Democrat'
leaders are in open sympathy with,
tho rebellion. This is cool, say
tho Boston Post, while a majority
of the President's family are with
tho rebel, and Mrs. Lincoln's sister

The information we receive from

of cotton is exceedingly favorable.
I ho news trom Magnesia, Denezli,

But what is still oi greater interest
ia that tbe Upland and mixed Sea

Asia Minor Cottoo Company, has
boon mostly planted In the interior,
ani that by information received
from alt the districts, we learn it
has come up abuudantly 'and the
plants have every appearance 6i
giving a splendid yield.
We have now only to fear any
ravages from the locusta, but front
all the information we can collect,
