WHILE wE believe in the ro
monetization of silver, we s0 no
reason for making a coin of ninety
two cents in value and calling it a
dollar. The weight should bo in
creased so as to equalize tho valuo
of gold and silver dollars.
AND NOW they say that the black
specks on dried orango or apple
poel contain a fungus which produces
whooping congh. A distinguished
s<vant inhaled some of the fungus
as an experiment and was rewarded
forthwith by a vigorous attack of
HAyis is backing down somewhat.
When his New York appointments
were defeated in the Senate his
friends announced that lie would
immediately make other appoint
mients. The public are now in
formed that the President deems it
unwiso to renew his nominations at
present. He evidently has not the
grit and doggedness which so dit;
tinguished his predecessor.
The United States Senate.
Hon George 1-. Pendleton sac,
ceeds Stanley Matthews from Ohio
in the United States Senate ; anoth
or gain to the Democrats. Of
Senator Pendleton nothing need be
said, as his record has been a dis
tinguished one. He came near
receiving the Democratic nomination
for President in 1868, but failing to
secure a two-thirds vote, Seymour
was norninated by acclamation. Mr.
Pendleton believes iii all the "so,
called Western heresies," green
backs, silver and a repeal of the
'resumption act. His advocacy of
these measures, which are popular
in Ohio, secured his election. Ohio
will be represented in 1879 by
Thurman and Pendleton, both able
That the Senate in 1879 will be
Democratic, has been known some
time; but we append a list of the
Sonatora whose terms expire at that
time. The Republicans aro: Spencer,
of Ala6una ; Dorsey, of Arkansas
Sargent, of California ; Cha e, of
Colorado ; Conover of Florida ;
Oglesby, of Illinois ; Allison, of
Iowa ; Ingalls, of Kansas ; Jones of
Nevada ; Wadleigh, of New Hamp
shire ; Conkling, of Newv York;
Matthews, of Ohio ; Mitchell, of
Oregon ; Cameron, of Pennsylvania;
Patterson, of South Carolina ; Mor
ril, of Vermont, and Howe, of Wis
consin. The Democrats are : B3ar,
num, of Connecticut ; Gordon, of
Georgia ; Voorhees, of Indiana;
McCreery, of Kentucky ; Dennis, of
Maryla.nd, and Merrimon, of North
Oarolin~a. Spencer, Dorsoy, Sargent,
Conovor, Matthews and Patterson
wvill be. succeeded by Democrats.
Th Dom~3ocrats cannot lose any seats
except thoso.of Voorhees and Bar
num, and may gain in New York,
Pennsylvania, Oregon and Nevada.
There are. now thirty.-.six Demo
orats in the Senate. There will be
at least forty, and possibly forty..
six, in 1879. T.ho Republicans can
inot have more. than t.wenty-niine..
Davis of Illinois will 'uote generally
with the Democrats.
The Public Debt,.
It must be confessed that the
articles in TIhe News an<l Courier
on the public debt. are among the
most powerful efforts that have
recently appeared in the field of
journalism. The campaign appears
to have been planned in advance,
and the attack has been made
along the whole line without falter
ing. Although differing with 7I%e
.NVews and Youwrer in many points,
we must, acknowledge. the ability
with which ltta- points have been
pressed. B3ut,. in- our judgment, it
would have been better to have
omitted the argumen.t that the
Consolidation kct should. of right,
be accepted; and to have relied
imply- on. the, position that.it is an
acoomnMheAfe an wil ..,m us
tained by the courts. Wo still
insist that the Consolidation Act
was a cheat and a fraud ; for it
swindlod the honest creditor out of
fifty cents on tho dollar and give
an equal amount to speculators, to
whom the State owed, rightfully,
not a singlo cent. But if tho courts
will enforceo the payment of thoso
bonds, that ends the discussioin.
As the fellow who refused, for
twenty reasons, to play poker, the
first being that he had no money,
was advised of the uselessness of
naming the other ninoteen, so, in
tiscase, if it be shown that tho
State is compelled to pay theso!
bonds, tho whys and the wherefores
are utterly unnecessary. The
arguments from expediency, thoughW.
ingeniously put, have little weight
in deciding what is just. If we ow

then quotes a decision of the
Supreme Court of Virginia, affiri
ing the inviolability of a similar
contract made in that State. With
these data, The A'cucs and Courier
makes a strong case. If the Con

the Stato might as well swallow the
look at once without any more wry
faces. But if there is a doubt, we
are in favor of lighting the Con
