The message is characteristic or Us au

V -"Vwny of going directly at his object
whether in word or action. Verbiage is no
' " part of his style. He is terse and forcible.
Neither are his convicliuns easily clinng
' ed. Tbe opinion heretofore expressed by
him on the finances which is his lead-
ing topic are those now repeated. Du
ring th e past year, he says that labor
and ca pilal have been abund:int, and at

' ' He adheres to the opinion, that for
eign ludebledn ess a necessity of the
' war contracted in good faith, should be
paid in gold, or its equivalent. To this
: end, commerce should be encouraged,
and our shipbuilding and carrying ca"
pacity increased, and new markets sought
and opened ; but the first step in this di-
. . rection is to secure a currency good
wherever civilization reigns, and one that
, will flow wherever it is wanted. He thinks
there should be no delay in fixing, by
', '. legislation, the mode of a return to spe-
cie payments. He declares that, in his
Judgment, there can be no prosperous
and permanent revival of business and
' ' industries until policy is adopted, with
legislation to curry it out, looking to a
. return to a specie basis. A revival of
- productive industries is needed by all
classes. Even the debtor and speculating
j- classes, who may think it an advantage
, to have cheap money, will, in the end, be
' disappointed if the value of the legal-teu-
der medium ol'excliunges be always kept
in doubt He regards any expansion or
permanent depreciation of the currency,
'.- as little .belter than any other form of re-
piidiating debts, public and private. De
lay in tbe preparation for final resump
tion partakes ot this dishonesty. A sea--"-0B
tbujL, at last arrive for the work
of redeeming our .pledges. That season
will, never come, except by positive ac
- tion.of Congress or National disasters.' It
. ! must be reached by general bankruptcy
- or by maintaining the credit aud integrity
. . of the nation and of indviduals. -
The President believes it is possible
for Congress to devise such legislation as
will start the nation afresh on a career of
prosperity. A nation dealing in a curren
cy below that of specie labors, under the
. disadvantage, that having no use of the
world's currency the latter is driven out ;
and the currency in use being ot fluctua
ting and uncertain value, worth only just
what it will purchase of gold, a large
, margin must be left to cover this fluctua-
. lion. The foreign producer, subjected to
no such uncertainty, is protected in his
' " dealings with us, and thus the great hard
ships of depreciated currency fulls upon
. . tbe working and producing classes. The
.. ; plan proposed by the President and the
Secretary of the Treasury for resumption
to specie payments embraces the follow
ing measures :
1. The repeal of the Legal-Tender act
' to take effect on a certain dale, and to
' apply to all contracts madu ..after that
2. The Secretary ot the Treasury to he
authorized to sell bonds Tor gold as it
may bceome necessary, and the establish
ment of a revenue sufficiently in excess
, of expenditures to insure au abundance
of gold to sustain redemption.
3. Free banking, allowing the utmost
elasticity to . the currency in the trans
action of business. He regards it unsafe
;'. to leave to Congress or to tbe Executive
, ti fix the amount of currency in circula
tion. The bankiug monopoly should
ceaae, and a redeemable currency be au
thorized to any extent that business
' should demand.-'-
j - -
,- These are briefly and. substantially the
-; President's ideas and recommeadations
Neither tbe President or Secretary
name any date at which the repeal of the
Legat-Tendei Act should take effect.
The vhole tone of the message is of that
- i eharaptef whloh ' caunot fail to have an
"'assuring effect upon the national credit

OUR NEW YORK LETTER.
OUR NEW YORK LETTER. Boss Tweed-Rents and Empty Stores
-The Trade of
Strikes and LaborBergh-The Liquor
The wicked old man is on the surface
again. Tired of livin j in prison, knowing
that Gov. Dix will not p.trdon him, ai:d
that the Governor elect, Tildcn, dare not,
if he would, he appealed once moe to the
courts. He was taken out of prison on a
writ of habeas eorput, and taken before
the courts, wbere be petitioned to be dis
charged on the scorce that the courts that
tried him had no jurisdiction. Judge
Barrett decided, of course, against the
illustrious thier, and back he went.
Wednesday night a rumor prevailed that
be had given the officers the slip, and had
got away to Europe, and for an hour It
was generally credited. It was tbe more
readily believed, for everybody knows
that if the Boss has tbe money he is cred
ited with, he can buy his way out without
trouble. And the comment upon it was
not encouraging to one who wants to be
lieve in the honesty of mankind. "I am
glad the old man has got away," said one
merchant in n.y hearing. """"Why clad?"
I asked, "Oh, he has been punished
enough," was the reply. And that was
the reply. And that was the expression
of a full half of the people. . Curious,
isn't it? Here is a man who plundered
the tax payers for four years in a' way
that would have made a pick-pocket
blush a man who stole right and left,
not only for himself but a horde of fol
lowers a man who, by sheer stealing
and an adroit use of what be stole, held
the city and State in the hollow of his
band, and even aspired to the control of
the country ; a thief, a swindler, and rob
ber is pitied by the men he plundered 1
I can't help but think that the men who
pity him, envy him, and that, placed as
he was, wonld have done the same thing.
The newspapers of the city, to their cred
it be it said, insist on his', being kept
wbere he is till his full term expires.
Public opinion will probably keep him
there until he buys bis way out.
And speaking of the Boss, Gov. Dix
did a good thing tbe other day. He sup
posed, as did all the world, that the ro
tund oM thief was dressed in stripes and
doing prison duty the same as ottie
criminals. Becoming better informed he
addressed a communication to - Mayor
Havemeyer, protesting against giving the
man who had plundered the city of $ 2,
000,000, a suit of rooms, servants, citizen'i
clothes, and other luxuries, and of allow
itig him visitors at bis own pleasure.
Very properly, the Governor character
ized this discrimination between one thief
and another as a "mockery of justice."
But the protest will do no good. The
Boss has means at his" disposal, and he
will be a prisoner of state as long as he
chooses to stsy.
RENTS AND EMPTY STORES.
lne exorbitant rents demanded on
Broadway, are telling on that sireet. Be
tween tbe Astor House and 14th street
there are over one hundred elegant stores
in the windows of which are displayed
the disheartening legend "To Let," and
this legend is growing more common dai
ly. The Broadway owners put tip rent
year after year, without any regard to tbe
value of the property. $12,000, $ 15,000,
$30,000 per annum were common figures.
This was all well enough during the war
aud the flush era that followed it, but
when the pinchin? times came it could
not be endured. No business that could
be transacted on the premises could pay
this rent and bouse after house went
down in the vain eudeayor. The land
lords would not reduce, for they had
faith if Smith wouldn't keep the; store,
Jones would be glad to take it, and as
they had become accustomed to living in
the style of twenty thousand dollar rents
they did not like to come down. But
Smith either quit the business or he went
over to some of the side streets, and Jones
knew too much to go into ruin blindfold,
and so the stores are empty. This is as
it should be. There is no reason iu keep
ing up to war prices, m anything, and
rent ought to be the first to come down.
True, it depreciates real estate ; but Why
should It not f There is nothing made
by calling fifty cents a dollar. Meu can
not labor forever for landlords.
Anu Dy tue way, speaking of "coming
down, there has been and is being '
practiced at this lime. Gentlemen who,
a year ago were iu the habit of stepping
into their fashionable tailors and payimg
$100 or $150 for an overcoat, with out
asking the price, are not doing it to any
alarming extent They go into the Bojw
ery and the other cheap streets, and buy
fur $30 te $50 what they would have to
pay $75 to $100 for on Broadwav. Ajid
they find that a pair of boots made ou a
cheap street, for ten dollars looks just as
well and wears just as long as the pret en
tious Broadway maker cooly asks, and
gets eighteen dollars for. This style of
economizing is getting to be very popu
lar. Men ioke about it and take a nrfde
in it. And, to the disgust of the high
priced hits, thousands, of them have
changed their drinking places. They tfet
their rjiodest quenches or their stiff in vig-
orators at the quiet place around the cor
ner, where tec cents does as much to
wards sending them' into a drunkard's
grave as twenty . hve or thirty cents
would at the fashionable bars. Of course
there are a plenty of noodles who still
submit to be fleeced as of yore, but the
number is growing smaller every day.
Let gs hope that it will continue until
we get down to anti-war prices. That
is what the country wants. It-is impos
sible to hold np to the old key, and the
sooner we all drop the better.
NEW YORK AND TRADE.
New York is being exercised once
more about losing a portion of its trade.
It is a fact that the graiu trade is goiug to
Boston and Baltimore very rapidly, and
that the prospect is good that the remain
der will go to those cities. New York
bas depended so long upon her natural
advantages, bas so long believed that the
Continent must .come to her, that she has
got arrogant and lazy as well. She is
content to have grain taken out of cars
aud enrted to vessels, and to have a horde
of leeches fastened upon every bushel
and suck the life out of it. Iu the meau
time, Baltimore, which, by the way, is
nearer to Toledo and the other grain
centres, builds splendid elevators, with
which she can handle grain at a nomi
nal cost, aud Boston does the same. The
Baltimore and Ohio Road, whose arms
covers all the territory that produces
anything, refuses to go into combina
tions, and the resell is, lhat this import
ant traffic goes there. Baltimore has
captured the coffee trade. Boston jobs
her own manufactures, and New York,
the' best point on the continent for tiade,
sits and mourns. But this is not all. The
West is not content to remain tributary
to New York, and Clnc igo, St. Louis,
Cincinnati, Toledo, and the other great
centres are importing on their own c
count from Europe, and are handling
domestics as well as New York. Conse
quently, the mourners go about the
stree ts of the metropolis. Aud all this
because tbe city has depended upon her
"natural advantages" aud forgotten that
enterprise can do away with disadvan
tages, and remedy what nature ha left
undone. New York basgot to do some
thing to hold her supremacy.
The strikes are virtually over. The
'longshoremen had the best chance of
all the trades for success, for while a fac
tory may shut down and do without op
eratives a newly arrived ship must lie un
loaded at once, and it takes skilled labor
to do it, but they, with this advantage
were forced to succumb to bard limes,
aud they have gone to work again. Th
strikers discovered what they ouht t
have known all along, that with, 50,000
unemployed men in the city, they are ul
the mercy of their employers, and will
bj till labor is in demand agaiu. It is
tlie old story over agnin, capital can lay
s:ill, labor cannot But for heaven
sake, do your best to keep impecunion
y.iung men from coming to New York
fiis winter. I say it, and I know there
are fifty thousand men out of employ
ment here to-lay, and the number will
be doubled in two months. And they
embrace all classes of people. There are
clerks, salesmen, book keepers, every
hdy. For instance, the 'grand Opera
House advertised for two hundred youu
ladies fjr the ballet in the revived Black
Crook, and the morning brought eight
hundred, all eager for positions at six
nra .r .-k These were not bad
girlthey were girls who wanted some
thin" to do, keep soul and body together
till there was work at something else
Two hundred were taken six hundred
were left oul in the cold crying from
riiiunnointment An advertisement of
two lines in the Herald for a cierk wanted
will bring a thousand applicants by nine
the next morning. My young friend if
you have got anything under the heav
ens to do keep out ot tbe big cities.
SCORE ANOTHER FOR BERGH.
Henry Bergh, the fnend of dumb ani
mals, has achieved another triumph.
Heretofore he lus only been able to con
vict the drivers of stages and cars who
have over-worked horses ; but last week
he eot the iron claws ot the law on a pro
prietor and brought bim np with a roun
turn. This is as it should be, for th
oroDrietors compel the drivers to over
load their stages. Now let him get afte
the street car companies. It is nolhin
uncommon to see a pair of horses going
up a steep grade with a heavy car loaded
with eighty or ninety passengers th
poor beasts straining every nerve and
brutal driver lashing them as though his
heavy whip could add to their muscular
force. Berih has only commenced his
work in this city. - But it does do on
good to see a lithe, active man dart into
.a crowd and jerk a brutal cartman, who
fs beating his horses, off his cart and
march him before a magistrate. It is a
sight calculated to restore one's con
fidence in human nature. Bergh's police
are all dressed in plain citizen's clothes,
but when one holds back the lappel of
his coat and displays his badge, the brute
who is abusing other brutes, knows who
he is and he becomes as meek as a lamb.
I shall, one of these days, write a lull
account of Bergh and his mission, hoping
to stimulate other men to be become

It is deliciously coo), but altogther too
dry. The city is not healthy. Diphtheria
is almost an epidemic in Brooklyn, aud
small-pox is spreac ing . in the city too
rapidly for peace of mind to the cit
izens. There is no special alorm. but a
feeling of uneasiness is developing. . An
experience similar to that of Philadel
phia two years ago is dreaded. Some
calamity ought to be expected to follow
such an election as that of last fall, and
the citizens may congratulate themselves
that it is nothing worse than small-pox

Tbe rumor that an offensive and defen

in mind. It should be remembered fur
ther, that only a Democratic success at

such a scheme to succeed.
