TIIE DAITA EVENING TELEGRAPH. PHILADELPHIA, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 18G6.
THE NEW YORK PRESS. EDITORIAL OPINIONS OF TIIE LEADING JOURNALS UPON CURRENT TOPICS. COMPILED ItVKBT DAT TOO LVEKISQ TRLFOriAPU. The Rchel I'l-osrramiitc. From the Tribune. Ex -Governor II. V. Johnson, of Oeorptin, hat very luboriotialy indorsed tbe Randall Conven tion, in a four-column lottPr to tho Augusta Chronicle. There are many pawwes which do ecrvc notice, as indications of what the Kcbel Ftatos expect to gain by union with Copper leads. He urges the disaffected Bcauls to bus tain the Convention, because it "has organized a party pledged to the restoration of the Union upon the basis of the Constitution and of repre sentation to tbe Southern States, without any tther test of loyalty besides the oath to support the Constitution of. the United States. This is deeply interesting to us. It is tbe overshadow 3nir question, paramount to all others. It is vital. I surrender none of the cherished poli tical op inioux of my life, so far an they arc applicable to the situation in which we are left 2)V the war, nor do I indorse such as I believe lobe erroneous in the Philadelphia platlorm nd address. "Rut what avails the discussion of those nowf What can we gain by argument ?" Nothing; but Jie hope to gain much through, the Jiclp of the Convention, which ha says . is confessedly s 3novement of the President, who "desired 1t l'irt, to inaugurate good feeling and under standing between the friends of tho Union, under the Constitution; secondly, to organize them into a party, to sustain his policy ot resto ration; and thirdly, to present lairfy to the people ot the whole country the distinct Issue of reinstating the ten excluded States to their con stitution al relations to the other States, without liuroustitutional tests of loyally." These are lather stale fact9 now, but Governor Johnson lias very plainly shown their Importance; 'The world knows that the people of the South do not approve of all that was. done by the Philadelphia Convention; Lor is it pre tended that our delegates did. Protest against what is objectionable by our preps or our people. 3s totally unnecessary, even as a matter of jus tice to ourselves. There Is no need to dcQue our position upon controverted questions of principle r policy; it is known and read of all men. 'iV'heu restored to representation we can argue snd d'.-bate if occasion require it. We shall then have an audience: we PhaM even constitute a part of the tribunal to decide the questions discussed." Again, this candid Rebel says: "Ihe Southern States, by tbe act of secession, put in issue two questions: First, the right to freceue; and secondly, the perpetflation of slavery, Roth have been decided against u. and we have accepted, in good faith, the award ot the sword. With this exception, our consti tutional riahts are iust what they were before the war: ior it is certain that if, in the laucruage cl that 'Address,' the 'Government acquired no 3iew power by the war,' the Southern Bcates lost 3ioue. It were bootless to discuss these princi ples now. It is a great point gained that, amid lhe liery play ol tho passions, a party has been organized that announces them. Ve can dis cuss, when the right of representation shall be accorded to us, with hope ot success. UuV to realize these anticipations, we must first lie admitted to our representation in Congress. U'bat is the great question the essential vital condition precedent to any hope of better days ior lhe South. And this deperds upon the tfnul success of the Philadelphia . movement, Jict us encourage that success." We hold this language to be sieni Scant enough to alarm every citizen who is not pre pared to admit that a State can rebel to-day and resume her full national position to-morrow. including the right to be of the jury and the judges in tbe trial of her treason. It is noto rious that the Robels do not accept the loyal resolutions which the Convention, in deference to the North, was compelled to adopt, but that they yield simply for a time in order to gain 3ower. Governor Johnson lias to that effect directly advised the South: "We must get into Congress, find through the Convention is the only door; then we can repeal those odious laws, and compel tbe admission that, having yielded to the Government, it has no rieht to punish our crimes or require pledttes that we will not renew thpm." This is his argument; it is that ot the burglar vho, detected in his crime, and knoekeu down by the oilicer, walks hand cuffed into court, and demands a seat beside tbe judge. Our Public Fliiaiiccs. Trom the Times. Mr. McCulloch lias put forth a statement of the public debt which creates universal astonish ient and almost uuiversul gratification. He Can never hope to please everybody connected With Wall street banking or his captious critics of the New York piess. The first will have their disappointments, and the last must in auige tneir censures, uui ne is doing more. Jle is pleasing the people by the rapidity and Skill with, wliich lie is reducing and funding the public debt. His success thus far Is wonderful the more so as he is neither disturbing the general business of the country or sacrificing The credit or market vaiue 01 nis stocks. The Bioeress made in the month of Ausrust to go no further back amply vindicates his discretion, and justifies his steady refusal to place his six per cent, bonds lor thirty cr forty years beyond lhe power or privileye of the Government to redeem them in gold at a ruuen earlier date, lie uas iuiriy demon etrated in the last .tew mouths that the entire public debt can be paid off in less than one-third the time which certain of his Wall street advisers have been insisting he should take, on a straight-out or unconditional loan at tbe highest rate ot gold interest. And 1y the use ot bis new bonds ot 1865, for tundina: fo much of the temporary obligations of the Treasury as he may not be able to pay at ma turity in 18G7 and 1H68 Iroin his surplus reve nues, he intimates his unwillingness to commit the Government to a high rate of interest a Bingle day longer than the money can be bor rowed, after live years, at a lower rate, where with to pay off the 6-2i)s m gold coin. That there' is no necessity for such committal is fchown by the premium which the new 6-20s now command in the market, and the premium borne by the 7'30 per cent, notes, convertible into 6-208. Indeed, there was no real necessity tor exceeding Ave per cent, from the start, had Congress afforded proper encouragement to the consolidation of the entire debt at this rate last summer. r. A few months ago the public were rather in credulous in regard to the practicability, or even possibility, of reducing the debt to two thousand millions before or by the time the short Treasury paper then outstanding in the shape of certificates of indebtedness and deposit and compound and 7"30 notes would fall due, or required to be paid or renewed. Yet it is now seen that this object is not only feasible, lut the fact itself almost accomplished. From five or eight millions per month, while yet the arrearages of the war were absorbing, most of the receipts ol the Treasury, the rate of reduc tion has eone up to an average reduction of twenty-live millions per month since the 1st of June, und even to thirty-seven millions for the single month of August. The application of the cash balances leit in uie Treasury at tne io of that month, if it were demeed advisa- tn convert the gold portion thereof, would at once reduce the interest-bearing deDt, as it stood on the 1st September, to $ 2,1.14,41)1.914, n,l the surnlus revenues of the next four months would undoubtedly bring the figure to S2.000.000.000 by the 31st December, 18C6, ia place of the 30th June, 1807, leaving outstanding $401,221,254 of greenback and other circulation, free of all interest charge ypoa (lie Treasury. Auotticr Hiwrlmen of the Manngrmeut of Affairs lu Wavll Street. Frrrm the Herald'. We have published an Hcconut of the rollapse of a Wall street institution, produced by the alleged extensive cmbe.7.1ements of its trea surer. The Ptory is an old one, and only re markable because of the amount of money in volved. The defaulting treasurer or cashier has become as standard a cuaructer In our financial associations as tbe heavy villain in the domestic drama. Presidents and directors ol bunks and ptock companies seem to regard these trequeat defalcations as matters of course, and take no precautions to prevent and few measures to punish them. So loosely are affairs conducted lhat when an expone occurs it is impjs.tible for those concerned to ascertain accurately how much money hiiB been stolen. The temptations thrown in the way of cashiera, clerks, treasu rers, and tellers by this careless mode of trans acting business are almost irresistible, and tbe lact that the criminals are generally permitted to escape, eveu when their operations are detected, adds another powerful incentive to crime. in the case of the Nassau Bank to which we rclened a lew days ago the embezzlement was discovered by accident. The detective police happened to notice a person of gentlemanly ap pearance haunfmar the Uroadway trambling houses, and upon making certain inquiries they discovered that be was tbe cashier ot the Na-t-sau Bank, and Lad been losing lame sums at play. Thereupon they went to the Bank Presi dent and Informed h'un of the fact, and an m vestluation disclosed the connection between the gambling operations of the cashier and the missing money at the Bank. The case before us was revealed by a circumstance quite as acci dental. A stock con pany had been formed for purposes fully set torth in our report, and an ex-Secretary of War, an ex Governor of New Hampshire, an ex-Treasurer of the United States Mint, and au ex-Secretary ol State of the State of New York, with many reputable merchants in this and other cities, were associated in the enterprise. The ex-Treasurer of tbe Mint at Philadelphia was eltcted treasurer of the Company, and in his banking-house the preliminary meetings of tbe shareholders were held. A board of direc tors having been chosen, it was agreed to sub scribe the sum of two hundred and fifty dollars each to start the Company, and the money was paid in to the treasurer. Other subscriptions were also received, and as the names of those in charge of the concern appeared to guarantee its stability, the general public began to buy up theetock. It is supposed that, in addition to the other receipts, at least thirty thousand dol lars must have reached the treasurer in tbe form ot remittances by letter; but the amount may really have been double that stun. In the meantime the treasurer was residing in grand style at a lashionable hotel. The cus tomary indulgences in high living, fine wines, fast horses, and Havana cigars fi)l out this chap ter ol the story. Of course there was a woiiiau in this ai in every similar case. Like Jenkins, this treasurer ban a wife and lamily to support besides his illegitimate establishment. He seems to have had a tol'ower, too, who bad ob tained some knowledge of his crime, and drpw uron him for funds in the ordinary style of these fellows in novels. Affairs drifted along in this happy routine tor some time, and although the capital of ihe company was being daily mis appropriated, the president and directors were unsuspicious and the stockholders none the wiser At last came the accident to which we have alluded, resulting in the reve lation of the defalcations. A carpenter had done some work in the banking house, and broueht in a bill which was deflated exorbitant. Payment was consequently retused, and the carpenter instituted a suit against the firm and recovered judgment. In liquidating the claim the treasurer gave a check which had been paid in by a merchant of this city as a subscription to tbe stocu ot tbe com pany. When this merchant took up his check he noticed that it had been used to defray the private deot of the treasurer, and at once do- nianded an investigation, it tne treasurer naci onlv cashed the check himself and banded the carpeuter the money he might have gone on swindling ior anotucr year unaiscovereu. this accident, however, checked nini in nis career. He appeared betore the investigating committee appointed by tne directors, promised to produce his accounts next day at noon, and of course ran away. Although this occurred on the 2d of July, and the defaulter resides in Phila delphia, no cuoit na3 yei oeen made lot his arrant. Now, what shall we say of such cross mis nianaaen.ent tis these lnets reveal ? What is the use of a president who does nothing but draw his salary, and of a board of directors who direct nobody ? Here is a company composed of respon sible gentlemen, and officered by financiers of experience, aed yet it3 treasurer is allowed to appropriate its lunds undetected by any ol these shrewd business men, and is only discovered through the accidental agency of a carpenter. When the treasurer is found out he runs away, no attempt being made to stop or to pursue htm. Alter he is gone the company cannot tell how much money he has embezzled. The very fact of his crime is kept Irom the public as long as possible, although unsuspecting persons mav still be subscribing to the company's stock. If it were not lor the Herald and its enterprise the true state of tbe case might have been concealed for years, as it already has been lor months. We could have published the informa tion which we cave yesterday some time ago had we not beeii obliged to verily every statement by careful examination, instead of being assisted by the company in making the fraud public, as a warning to all concerned. But, useful as such warnings may be to the people at lare, they seem totally unheeded by the conductors of our financial institutions. One after another these dedications are exposed, but the next week another of the same sort is allowed to happen. Certainly our financiers ought to be wise enough to guard aaainst these endless repe titions ot the same fraud. If we must have crimes let there be some little variety about them, 'ibis laice of the innoceut pivsideut. the un sophiseated directors, and the kuavish cashier or treasurer begins to sirow tiresome and to be piayed out. People will soon believe, and very rightly, that there is no institution in Wall street worthy of confidence, and that men who are wise and keen enough in their own private business become foolish and blind when orca uized into boards ot directors or placed in the presidential chairs. But, lor the sake of all those who already have funds invested in stocks or deposited in bauks, we again call upon each company to rigidly overhaul its aceouuts, and we intend to urge me Legislature, at us next session, to institute a morougn investigation of these institutions. Mr. Beecher' Secoud Letter. From the World. Mr. Beecher has written to one of his parish ioners a letter, which was read in Plymouth Church on Sunday, vindicating his noble and statesmanlike letter indorsing the Cleveland Convention. This second letter is as wise, manly, and considerate as the first, to which it gives additional value by showing the tenacity with which the views expressed in the first are held, and the discrimination with, which they have been formed. To be sure, it is not written Irom the stuudpoiut of a Democrat, nor suouui we greatly respect Mr. Beecher if it were. A man of capacity and sincerity cannot ning a sudden summersault, and discredit all he has been doing with great puDiicity unu .eai ior twenty jeais. Mr. Beecher remains a Republi can; remains a devoted Irlend of the black race; n mains a vigorous advocate of the right of the negroeb to the ballot; aud declares his disap proval of certain poiuU in the character and certain acts in the recent course of President Johnson. And it is because he thus stands on his old ground, because he repudiates any political alli ance with President Johnson or the Democratic party, that the Cleveland letter, aud this new letter reaffirming its principles, have so great a value. Had the Cleveland letter b jeu written by a Democrat, its argumentative coareney Its ttttesinanlike breadth of view would have been precisely tho same; but it would have lacked its peer to command, nay compel, the Meutlon ol those who most need its teachings. The ex treme radicals, being unable to confute its rea soning, atiempted breaking its force by accusing Mr. Ueecherot havlne enlisted under the banner of President Johnson, and virtually gone over to tbe Democrats. Tills was adroit, but it was not honest. It was calculated to prevent a candid estimate ol the force of Mr. Beecber's arguments, by makina the millions of bis Republican admirers believe that bis arguments proceeded from a standpoint hostile to all their most chcri'-hed principles. The second letter says that the edge ol tho first cannot be blunied, nor its eilect on Republicans be destroyed, by such unscrupu lous representations. Mr. Beecher demon strates in this second letter, that his desire for the prompt restoration of the Union is consist ent with tbe steadiest adherence to the political doctrines with which lie has so long been iden tified. He thereby removes themost lorniidnblo obstruction to the spread of his views in the Republican party. Mr. Beecher believes the pending Constitu tional amendment to be Intrinsically just and reasonable, but he maintains that to postpone the restoration of the Southern States for its ratification would be a virtual decision to post pone reconstruction for years, and Incur all the hazard of mischief which would thence result. "Either," he fcays, "the advantages of the Union nre fallacious, or the continuous exclusion ot the South from it will breed disorder, make the future retiuion more difficult, and, especially, subject the Irecduien to the very worst condi tion of society which can well exist." Mr. Beecher desires the election of representatives to l oiiprpss, ibis tall, who favor the early admis sion of the recusant Ma'cs. "In this spirit," he says, "and for this end, I drew up tny Cleveland letter. I deem its vins sound; I am not sorry that 1 wrote it.' Mr. Beecher dissect the character and criti cizes the conduct of President Johnson; but he animadverts, with almost equal disapproval, on the course which has been pursued towards the President bv the majority ot the Republican party. As Mr. Reecher represents it, t'ie lead iiitr Republicans have shown a foolish and lamentable want of tact in their treatment of tbe President. They tried to influence a proud, sensitive, pugnacious, dogmatic man by brow beating; and they have reaped whatthev sowed. With the strong and passionate qualities which Mr. Beecher ascribes to the President, he gives him credit ior much natural kindness and says that the South, by approaching him with per fect subtnis-ton and appealing to his generosity, have completely outmanceuvred the Repub licans, and won the President by the superiority ot thrir tactics. Had the Republicans shown more wisdom and a better appreciation of Mr. Johnson's charac ter, there might have been perfect concert of action between him and Congress, and objects could easilv have been accomplished which have now become impossible. The President being a Southerner, brought into temporary sympathy with the llepuuiicans by the war, was iii constant dan ire r of relapse, unless treated with great consideration; and when they were fooli.h cnoueb to provoke a contest of stub bornness and dogmatism, they ought to have known inat in these qualities they would find at least their match, and that, in the heat and nlicctition of such a contest, they would probably drive him back into his old detestatiou of North ern fanaticism. This criticism of Mr. Beec'ier's, so far as it is well loundcd, goes to show that the Republicans have thrown away their only op portunity to carry their policy by the method they propose: and that nothing now remains for them but to restore the Southern 8lates. and fall back upon their old resources ot argument and agitation.

K Is stated that the insurgents, surrounded on every side by the Imperial troops, have retreated in the woods; but thevare hemmed in by the troops and the volunteers the latter belonging mostly to the Toungouses and Bouriates, who are cNcellent sharpshooters. The town is much agitated, because it contains many inhabitants and employes who nre .Folc. Foot and horse troops paifol the whole nielit; in every street are sianoned ten mounted Cos-acks and ten on foot. Tho heat Is excessive; yet no one dares to co Irom town either to bathe or walk in the woods. Advices received to-dny from Onssolie (t rown Mills, slxtv versts from Irkutsk) an nounce Hint tbe Poles working here have also revolted; likewise iu the towns of Kansk and Bnlnsansk. Vet, by a decree" dated 13th of April last, the Emperor had considerably luititited the con dition ol the Poles deported in Siberia. Those condemned to penal servitude for six years were made colonist; those who were colonisti received permission to circulate freely through the whole of Siberia. It seems that they have availed themselves of this act of clemency only to mutiny, kill, and pillage, for escape was out ol the question. Tbe Polish mutiny in Siberia was caused not by a compiracy, but by sheer despair. Thou sands of political exiles, victims ot the last re bellion, were employed in making roads fr nn Irkutsk to Kiachta, along the telegraph to the Chinese frontier, and from Verchnoi Udinsk through Nercainsk to Peiropaulovsk tn Kamt schfitka. They were divided into many detach ments, one of which, bcina stationed iu Kultuk. on Lake Baikal, was so badly provisioned that tbe men began to die oil last, and the survivals, seeing tue like fate for themselves, resolved cither to provide a remedy or fall iu in the attempt. Accordingly, they surprised their guards on the night of July '20, and having possessed themselves of their arms, cut dowu some hundreds, am one whom were Colonel Schat and some other ollicers. Other Polish detachments bave joined them. The number of insurgents was swelled to several thousands. Tbe Buryatep, or natives of the region, were compelled to supply the warlike band with horses and victuals, and in some cases did not scruple to make common cause with them, lour companies of infantry and six guns sent against theni from Irkutsk were attacked hy the Poles, who bad placed themselves iu ambus'h on the banks ot the Seleuga, and defeated with great slaughter. Of two more detachments subsequently des patched in search of the mutineers, one took up a fortified position in the monastery of Posolsk, where ft was besieged and defeptea by the Poles; the other crossed" from Irkutsk, to the eastern shores of Lake Baikal, where it tell iu with a horde of Bur.vates, and was forced to re tieat. Meanwhile the Poles continued their march in lhe direction of Nercilinsk, with a view to liberate the numerous prisoners detained in the mines of that province. The above is the Polish versioD of w hat has occurred, while the Russians assert that the rebellion was crushed in thejnid, jind jiasbeen long over. I SPECIAL NOTICES.
