IT.,.r,. is nio attempt at evasion, or ava
at :;i,is exaction, but a manly, straight
,e | rward. j tst determination to honestly
:is py an honiest debt. All nations have
lt| :.n alpted st-anard of value ; that of
:he UInitetd States is-the gold dollar.
S'hie standard has intrinsic value, a
t n t,, or bond does not. The government
"r ninety years has held the gold dol
: i.r it.- -tandard, and every loan and act
:itale ,.ince that of Aug. 4, 1790, "'pro
li vidin; for fulfilling the engagement of
e the I'nitetl States, and funding its debt
i oton equitable and satisfactory terms,"
las been upon that basis, although in
mlale of gold redemption. When the
l,,an bill came upl before Congress, sub
S,.luieuntly to thelegal tender act, which
r in ni way effects the bonds-Stevens
a:, !,soe few others endeavored to in
Sd-.-rt a clausernaking the bonds redeem
al,le in legal tenders. He was over
whelmingly voted down, and although
when the bill became a law, he claimed
that 1i. had carried his point, by the
uu1ijsion. he was alone In that
view. The Secretary of the Treasury,
in authorizing their sale by Jay Coc.e
, (Co., stated they were redeemable in
c' in when due. The bonds were sold
to the people under that pledge by the
chief ,thiier of the Treasury, and the
l failure of the country to so redeem they
would be a swindle. Measures have
tbeen introduced in Congress for con
'lid ating, and funding the debt at a
low rate of interest, with an extension
oftime that will at once lift the bur
dens from this generation, and render
it. laylment in good faith a certainty.
Tlhis will have been accomplished in all
I probability before the adjourament, and
the miserable. crochety, give-me-my'
pound-of-flesh clap trap of the New
York Convention will have been con
cocted in vain. Before their bait sinks
in the stream of suffrage, the season for
angling will have passed, and they
will throw their lines mournfully in the
rear of "the la ru mn of shad."
The Democratic Convention has seo
lected the legends for its banners, in
place of those wiped out by overwhelms
ing defeat four years ago. It has also
chosen standard bearers, in place of the
fallen-cresttallen--late lamented Little
Mac. and luck-less Pendleton, Horatio
Seymour, for President: (ien'l. Frank P.

Iltemocratic lidggery to rob the rib ridged

stands thus: The Republicans say "pay
the debt honestly :" the Democrats, "in
strict accordance with the terms." The
terms are held to be gold. To alter that
view. it will be necessary to bring
the i:sue before the Supreme Court.
The court holds the same opinion as the
government, therefore, whether Grant or
Seymour wins, %Mr. Belmont has hedged
himself and his millions, although the
F Pendleton men conceived they had car
ried their point. Another issue is on
the question of suffrage in the late rebel
states. Rlepublicans recognize the right
of Congress to regulate the question
therein, prior to their re admission, the
f matter being left to the ratification of
the people. Democrats hold that with
L no civil state government existing in

The telegrams state that the Senate
Committee on Territories have decided
to report favorably upon the bill intro
duced some time since providing for
Sessions of Territorial Legislatures
every two years. The proposition for
Biennial Sessions, is one that meets
with general favor in the territories.
Unless in exceptional instances, it is
fully adeqluate for all neccessary legisla
tion, and will save large sums of money
to the (Government and the respective
terr:tories" Even when the greatest
economy is exercised, a forty orfifty day
session involves a heavy burden ot ex
Siense that may thus he obviated with
out detriment to the interests of the
Speiople. The decision against the, bc

weight of legislation upon the shoulders

You slunk to the rear like craven
hearted whelps, when the storm and
battle of the impeachment campaign wag
on; now you would straggle in to go in.
to winter.quarters. IT IS Too LATE; you
are under charges for cowardice and de
sertion in the face of the enemy.
Mr. Trumbull has addressed a letter
to Governor G. Koernor, of Illinois, the
first he has written in reply to those re
ceived on impeachment. IIe says:
" I was just as well aware before vot
ing as now, that Andrew Johnson was
odious tQ the country, and that probably
ninety-nine hundredths of the Republi.
cans desired his removal.** I think I am
right in coming to the conclusion that
no crime or misdemeanor justifying im
peachment was made out in the case;
but, if mistaken in this, I must, of
course, take the consequence of my er
ror ofjudgment, but to charge it as a be
trayal of the party is cruelly unjust."
At his own word he sets up his judg
ment directly adverseto"ninety-nine one
hundredths" of those who elected him,
but complains that it is "cruelly unjust"
to charge him with "betrayal." Silence
were better than such an explanation.
He can anticipate the 'consequences'and

LAKE SU.'m:iuoI Sn11ir" \.\L.-.\'ork
is steadily progressing on the Portage
Lake and Lake Superior Ship Canal.
The entire length of the canal
when completed will be a trifle over
11,000 feet, and the amount of earth to
be removed is about 9,000,003 cubic
yards. The length of the present cut
is about 900 feet, commencing 200 feet
outside of the shore line in a natural
depth of eight feet of water. The
depth of water in the cut is from six to
seven feet, and admits of the free ingress
and egress of the tugs and loaded
scows. Mr. W\ells, Secretary and Treas
urer of the comlpany, feels sanguine of
connecting the cut with Lake Superior
before the close of the season. The
company, has a force of eighty men on
the canal, twenty of whom are em
ployed on shore, grubbing, etc. The
balance of the force is divided into
gangs, and relieve each other every two
hours.-St. Paul Press
Gen. Grant and the Jews.
In the Cnicage Times of the 26th ult. has an
article headed, "Why Grant dislikes the Jews,'
and in which my name is used. The whole
article is a lie from beginning to end. H. B.
W. pro'ably stands for a notorious rebel sym
pathizer who lives, or did live, in the town of
Bellevue at the time I lived there. I will
not say his name is RI. B. Wyncoop. The
whole thing is a manufactured falsehood, and
got up to influence my countrymen against
Gen. Grant. I live here and am easy to be
found, and if any of mr friends or others
wish to see me on this subject, I shall be
happy to see them, and disabuse their minds
on all such glaring misrepresentations, where
my name is used. Again I pronounce the
article a base lie.
