SPIRIT OF TUB PRESS, - IMKMU oranoM or thb mamm otmui vto gcarest Tories oompilkd iyut pat roi ni iTirora tkukbath. jrWi jr. r. " ; ' Mr. VTalke''" derotion to honesty In our country' dealing! with her creditors is so evi ? deiall rer nd hearty, that we are happy to I ; tgr with him, so far as w can. lie visited Earope during our late struggle as the author ized flnanoial agent of our Government, ani he did his utmost to induoe capitalists to . buy our' Five twenty and -Ten-forty ' bonds. To this end, he assured them that they were pay able and would be paid, principal and interest, la coin or Its full equivalent; and he thus Induced the purchase, mainly by Germans, of large amounts of those bonds. Had it been the understood fact that those bonds were payable in greenbacks (a contradiction in terms), they could not have beep negotiated nor sold abroad in those days at any price. The buyers were quite aware that they braved the risk of our discomfiture or exhaustion by the Rebels and of our consequent Insolvency: they knew that we could not pay thorn if dis aster should deprive us of ability to do so: they did not understand that we reserved the right to extinguish bonds on which six per cent, interest in gold was distinctly promised and regularly paid, by giving dollar for dollar In our own naked promises, drawing no inte rest, redeemable never, and only made to be broken. Ilad such been the fact, and had they been made aware of it,, not a bond could have been sold in Europe, and the redoubled pres sure for exohange to meet our heavy importa tions, especially of war material and supplies, must have sent up the premium on gold, the prices of all staples and fabrics, and thus im mensely increased the cost of the war and the aggregate of our debt. Low as our bonds sold abroad, we were signally helped by their sale, and are considerably less in debt to-day than we should have been if the Butler and Stevens theory of national obligation had then been Accepted and disseminated. We are perfectly willing that our Govern ment should contract one thirty years' loan of two or three hundred millions, for negotiation In Europe the bonds being printed and the amounts specified both in English and German, and the interest payable at Frankfort or Ber lin but we think this may be done at live per cent., and we would use it only to fund our obligations already held abroad. We deem it neither necessary nor expedient to incur another dollar of foreign debt during peace. Such a loan would prevent the pre mature return of our bonds now owned and . held in Europe, and this will suffice. We want no gold imported. The Government holds over one hundred millions; the banks and the people have certainly not less than ' two hundred millions, and we are producing fully one hundred millions per annum. To borrow and import two hundred and fifty mil lions morejwould be carrying coals to New castle on a'gigantio scale. Only guard against J heavy dralts from Europe (and we hold even this an ideal danger), and we are abundantly able to resume to-morrow. 1 ' Nor can we agree with Mr. Walker in wish- , lng to stop the payment of our national debt. V, We consider one hundred millions per annum little enough to extinguish; and we protest ' against postponing payment indefinitely. It J. Will always be easy to invent excuses for i ; delay to complain that the people are poor, and to assert that "the present bnrden of tax c ;j ation is grinding out the substanoe of our Seople. and immensely retarding our progress i wealth." But we challenge the assertion, and demand proof. Have we not tilled more land in 1867 than in any former years ? Have ' we not grown larger aggregate orops f Have ; we not built at least 100,01)0 new houses, fac . : tories, furnaces, stores, and warehouses many . ' . of them large and costly f Has not our labor -. been generally employed and fairly paid? " .: - Have not multitudes of new homesteads been -'... created, and large additions made, by clearing f, off timber and tencing ana breaking up prai , ! rie, to the area of oil ones ! If these ques - ', tions must be answered in the affirmative, .. , how oan it be truthfully said that our pro ' gress in wealth baa been "immensely" re- .'. Urdedf ' . i Of oourse, it is inconvenient to pay heavy ; '; taxes at all events, it is more agreeable not i ' to pay them. : But let us talk sense. In 18Gb' " the Tribune paid over $10,000 as advertising tax, and the aggregate receipts from that tax '' 1 must have been two or three millions. The last Congress repealed it, against our urgent ' remonstrance. It is agreeable to be rid of the f tax; but we insist that it did not "immensely ," . retard the progress of our wealth." It only put into the Federal treasury money that we Were glad to keep in our own poukets. And . so of the other taxes that were repealed or re 1 duced by the laBt Congress, and still more that ' 3 will probably be repealed or reduoed by this Congress. " It may be that we shall increase in national ' wealth as rapidly as Mr. Walker estimates; ! ' but who can foresee the future f . New wars may break out; new complications arise; we i may have bad harvests, pestilence, and an archy resulting from increased depravity and vice. We should persevere in paying heavily, . if only to fortify our credit. Let the world see ; that we are resolved on paying off our bonds, and every one will be eager to hold some of them; while, if we stop paying, our credit is i likely to droop. Merely as a matter of economy, we would persist in paying not less than one . hundred millions a year. Then, bonds will be constantly growing scarcer, imd capitalists will be scrambling for them. Let us imitate the thrifty farmer or mechanic, who, having run in debt for his estate, his outfit, pays oil , that . debt as fast as he can. So long as he is seen , to do this, his creditors are rarely importunate; ' let him stop paying, and they all begin to want their money. As to contraation and expansion', we simply propose to give nature a ohance. Let us re v ume. forthwith; nd then, if we have too muoh currency, the surplus will run in and be redeemed; while, u WlJ uaTe too liu1e we ( Bhall readily obtain or emit more. Resumption . , , will, on the one hand, reduce the amount of - currency we need, by bringing prieH8 to the y Bpecie standard; so that one hundrd. millions of currency will serve whom one lmuared and ,, ; forty millions are now required. Then al our specie not 'less than three hundred millions of dollars now merely so muoh metal, like , -- lead or copper will become money aaain. ; , . We donbt that an equal amount of greenbacks . j and national bank notes together will be cau- ;. celUd by resumption; should we be mistaken :. , on this point, it will be because the ourrency f- . is rtduudaut. t We shall not run the Treasury . for gold; no more will the great mass of those . who- favor resumption. It the Government ffchould be broken, it will be by those who de uuin.ce 4nd lit lit against resumption; and we :' .."(ineBtion. not their will, but their power. Let J.. an. tht u. not cast about for thu means of ' vtoDviua up resumption, but simply and jiromptly resume, , Central Or at and the Preside jr. It will be seen by a notioe in another column that a public meeting ia to be held at Cooper Institute, to present General Grant as a candi date for President. The call is signed by a large number of our most substantial and in fluential citizens, of both politioal parties. The most signiflcent feature of the proposed meeting is that it Ignores political parties alto gether. It tacitly assumes that General Grant is to be the candidate of the people, without regard to party; that, as a candidate and as President, he is not to be the repre sentative, nor to act in the iuterest, of either party to the necessary exclusion of the other; but that in making up his Cabinet, in dispen sing the patronage of his office, and in shaping the policy of his Administration, he will be free to act upon his own convictions of what the public good requires. As a mafter of course such a position as this will be very strongly contested. Neither of the two greajt political parties, acting as party organizations, will concede it. Parties live partly upon prin ciple and partly upon interest; partly because their members deem certain doctrines and measures essential to the publio good, and partly because their active managers oovet the control of the vast patronage whioh goes with administration. Both parties, acting from both motives, resent the election of a President who disavows allegiance or obliga tion to either. The Republican party seems resolved to insist upon reconstruction on the basis of universal negro suffrage, as the cardinal measure of its policy, and will make General Grant its nominee if he ' will aooept the posi tion as the representative of that principle. The Democratic party will nominate him if he will repudiate it. And each party thinks it can preserve its consistency, and promote the public welfare, only by insisting upon con formity to its creed as the sine qua non of a nomination. - A nomination by one party, on a party platform, of course renders a nomina tion by the other quite out of the question. The gentlemen who have called the Grant meeting evidently assume that there is a pub lic sentiment stronger than party, and that the crisis of the country is grave enough to evoke it and give it commanding and controlling power. The great evil of the day the por tentous fact, as full of future peril as it is of present disaster is, that though the war has ended, peace has not been secured. The Union, for which the war was fought, has not been restored. The Constitution has not been reinstated in the paramount authority which the Rebellion menaced and for a time inter rupted. Bitter sectional feeling is growing out of the very facts which should have banished it forever. The extirpation of slavery is threatening the country with greater evils than slavery itself involved. A war of races, full of disaster to both and of ruin to the coun try, treads hard on the heels of the war of sec tions, and threatens the nation with tenfold greater calamity. A mere party victory in the coming contest no matter which party may be the victor will aggravate the evil instead of removing it. It will increase the danger rather than relieve it. 1 What is needed most of all is a President in whose patriotic wisdom the whole country has confidence, and from whom it will aooept a policy in the interest of the country and not of a party or a section. . If there is any man in the nation who can command that confi dence, it is unquestionably General Grant. If the people are prepared to forego party inte rests and party feeling, either in whole or in part, and to accept as a guide through the menacing complications and embarrassments which surround the oountry, some one man independent of all parties, they will aooept General Grant. The whole North and West will accept him as the leader who gave the Union its victory in arms over the Rebellion, and who has evinced an unfaltering purpose to maintain the principles which were thus vindicated. The South will aococpt him as the man who remembered to be magnanimous In the hour of victory, and who would have our repub lican institutions rooted in the love and attach ment of all our people. And all sections and all parties would feel assured that Gene ral Grant would enter upon the Executive office without resentment or rancor with "neither friends to reward nor enemies 10 punish," and with no motives but those which hLTA always animated him in his past career the purpose to serve his oountry, to perpetuate her liberties and promote her Wnetnerine peupe yin such a stand in entering upon the Presidential canvass may, perhaps, be doubted.But no one oan doubt that if they were, the future welfare of the repubho would seem more assurea than it does at present. Why Not Jma M. Asblay 1 Prom the iV. Y. World. Not long since the Tribune, at a loss for a theme, in consequenoe of the disastrous defeat of its party in several Northern States, was kind enough to nominate a Presidential oau didate for the Democratic party. Its known courtesy towards political opponents entitled the article to a respeotfoJ consideration, da- spite the fact that it contained several inaccu rate statements concerning the ancestry aud antecedents of the gentlemen whom it affected to honor. Animated by an even more gene rous lepirlt than breathes o'er all the utter ances of that lournal, and commiserating its party upon Its anxiety to decide wneiner, u nominated by it for President, General Grant or Chief Justice Chase would pou tne greater number votes, we beg to present James M Ashley, of Ohio, as the fittest person now before the publio to be the radical candidate for the Presidency in 186'8, and if we refrain from disparaging the merits of tne several per Fons whose names have been mentioned in connection with this position, it is not that they are unworthy oi notice, put mat air. Ashley's claims upon tne party are so an measurably superior to theirs. if u-m unt liM rU'iiiml. evn bv Mr. Ashlev's bitterest foes, that he is radical from the orown of his head to the soles of his feet. Upon radicalism he was weaned, and upouthis "meat doth this our Casar feed that he hath grown so great." Such an assertion has yet to be made of any other of the aspirants for the Republican nomination; even the eruiite Chief Juttioe freely declares In effect that he is not so radioal as those who have read his oeeches and noted his aots are confident that be U. Moreover, Mr. Ashley is a man of coiu iai,diDg presence. Heaven forbid (for the Triliun take, if for no other reason) that the party oi g,eat moral ideas bhould be driven to Belect a 8Uodtud bf arer whose chief qualifica tions would Im i,i.i i.hviriiiu- lint auould in&u ever Muiu t,0 that acme of corpo real ptrle.otiou of wuiohFourierites and ira hauiitea fondly dream, wuose claims for leader hbip could compare with those of James M. Ashley, of Ohio f . Fw oau ha observed him m ttie House ol UepreaeutativuH, au he rises irom hut seat to addretm the chair (which are always vacated by their oooupants on such occasions), without experiencing a thrill of admiration for his commanding presence, his vigorous lungs, and his vapid utterances. But it is as a statesman that Mr. Ashley presents the strongest claims upon his party to be its candidate for the Presidency. He alone of all the great men that compose "the noblest party ever formed," foresaw the ne cessity of impeaching Pi esident Johnson. In his brain the project was conceived, and from his lips was delivered. At first his party associates failed to appreciate his wisdom, but he persisted, and within the last week had the satisfaction of hearing his own ideas em bodied in a report of the majority of the mem bers of the Judioiary Committee, and presented to the House of Representatives, with the added resolution that the President should be impeached at onoe. What greater triumph could he askf His testimony before the Judioiary Com mittee stamps him as no ordinary man, the equal in shrewdness, the superior in adroit ness of the late lamented Lincoln, whose grave a certain criminal lawyer of this city yearns to desecrate. When before that committee he evinced a most charming forgetfulness of bavins written letters which, in nis own handwriting and bearing his own signature, were shown to him by ms examiner, non. Charles A. Eldrldge. Thrloe he was asked if he bad not stated to the members of the House of Representatives hat . he had in his possession evidence which would implicate Mr. Johnson in the assassination of Mr. Lin coln, and as often evaded a direct answer, until, pressed beyond a possibility of evasion, he emitted the loiiowing ropiy, tne only parallel to which in the English language is the lucid testimony of Mr. Samuel Weller, in the famous case of "Bardwell vb. Piokwiok:" 'It was not that kind of evidence wniob would satisfy the great mass of men, especially tLe men who do not concur with me In my tUeory about this matter; I have bad a tUeory about It; I have presented an me racis mat l Knew any tbine of In reference to tbla matter to General Butler, since hie committee was formed espe cially charged with this matter, and I bave talked to him and given blm whatever lofoi matlon I bad, and my convictions suspicions If you will as to Mr. Johnson's oompliolly la the assBS8lnatiou; I was led to believe by the statements of Baker and other mea, that there were letters In existence to show Johnson's amity knowledge: so far as this eommlttee was coneerned, as I made no speclflo charge against the President on that head, I did not oare to say anything to the committee about It: I would not make the charge on bare suspicion, but I hnd statement coming to me from a variety of sources which brought me to believe that John son bad a guilty knowledge, either before or alter the fact; I was anxious to get any evldenoe to maintain the charges,! bad made, and I did not see very well how a general oonsplraoy could bave ex It, led and a guilty knowledge ol the great crime of assassination without some thing else being disclosed to maintain the obarges whioh were already before the com mittee for investigation. 'Q,. State to the committee any knowledge thai you have of Mr. Johnson's complicity lu the assassination of Mr. Lincoln, and which you bave withheld from this eommlttee. A. I bave not had a living witness that I could pre sent or I should have oome to tbe committee with blm; I bave given Ueneral Butler all the matters that I regarded as of sufficient Import ance, to let blm look tbem up and see whether there was anything in them or not." Doubtless, the Tribune remembers the let ters of Ashley prostituting his official position in Congress, and arranging to get his dirty share of political and profitable plunder out of the pockets of the people, . a few years ago. uere, then, we nave embodied in one man all the moral theories with the immoral praotices of the party of whioh Mr. Ashley is an aokhow- leagea leader, it mis dots not entitle him to the radioal nomination lor the Presidency, then words are nothing, for the 'Tribune has deolared again and again within tbe last two months that no man ought to be the candidate of the Republican party who does not embody its distinctive principles, and that it will support no other, now then can it avoid urging the claims of the great man whose name we have placed at the head of this article ? Greeley and Raymond Befora the Prttl. asm ana Btntit. From the N. Y. Herald. The fate of Greeley and Raymond in the ex. periment of office-seeking furnishes a very curious and instructive piece of history. Both editors, and conducting papers in the interest of the same party, the greater and. lesser radi cal organs of this city; both ambitious to be diplomats and to represent the republio at the royal courts of Europe, and both having strong claims upon the party in power, yet one was rejeoted by the Senate and the other confirmed. Though Raymond has tried a good many feats in politioal tumbling and balanolng, he has confined himself pretty strictly to the oompany ealled Republicans, and has never gone over wholly . to the rival establishment of Democrats. He only made an effort 'at Philadelphia to break up the .two and to amalgamate the choice elements of them into . one, . but failing . soon in this, he lost no time . in Inmninir back - to his original companions. He is a Republican of twelve or thirteen years' standing, and we be lieve he made his ddbut in the party at Pitts burg about so many years ago. Of late he has pursued a moderate course, and, on the whole. rather friendly to President Johnson's policy and administration. His nomination to a foreign mission by Mr. Johnson, therefore, was consistent enough. The President in this case was rewarding one who supported him and who was of the same party whioh raised him to the Presidency. I5ut the Senate had be- oome radical, and spurned this man or mode rate and compromising tendencies. He hung on to the party and still hangs on. but it would not allow him to have a mission aud even drove him out of Congress. The country ha lost a suitable representative abroad, the President's purpose to reward a friend has been defeated, the ambition of a prominent partisan has been blasted by his own party, and we have in all this a striking example of the ingratitude of politicians. The confirmation of Greeley's appointment as Minister to Austria by the Senate was quite natural. He is as radical as the Senate, or more radioal, and consequently his nomina tion passed without the least difficulty. But the strangest thing is that the President should have appointed him. He has been throwing dirt at Mr. Johnsou for the last two years, ihe Jritiunc has so besmeared the President with lath that the readers of that journal can no longer recognize his features or form. The changes have been rung in the coarsest Five Points epithets, over and over again, to blacken him in the eyes of the public The man whom be has ap pointed Minister to Vienna has ealled him a drunkard, debauched sot, , renegade, scoundrel, liar, and everything else vile. For two years he has been unmercifully aseailtd in this way by his new appointee to Austria. What a commentary on the ways and doings of Presidents and politicians ! Evidently the way to the highest oilines is to abue the Prebideut in unmeasured terms. Moderate abuse might be suCLient to get a fctuall office, but a great deal is ueoessary to obtain a mission abroad. However, it may be that the President considers Greeley's appoint ment a good stroke of policy. Ha may thiuk that Greeley will be out of the way of doing mischief, that his Minister to Austria will be so intent on making an impression at the onr iner mat nome politics will be for gotten. No doubt Greeley will be very muoh occupied in his new rdle and novel position. We oan forewe how be will try to imitate the bilosopher Franklin at the brilliant Court of ouis the Sixteenth, how proudly he will move about among the Uapsburgs the da- scendants of the Caisara in his oowskln boots, slouched hat, and white coat, and how he will astonish the proud nobles of the empire by his natural simplicity. We can imagine the benign emile upon his countenance ns the beautiful and elegant ladles of the" Court of Vienna crowd around and admire the unique specimen of American republicanism. Under the fascination of this new sensation we should not be surprised if our white-coated philosopher were to revolutionize the dress, social habits, and the Government of the Austrians. At any rate, the Viennese will have an exalted opinion of the great republio and republican Institutions, when they see the re markable individual we send to represent us. To make the mission perfeotly agreeable to his taste and truly representative of our country under the new order of things, the only thing to be done is to send with him full blooded plantation negroes from the South as secretary and attaches of legation. We shall watch with profound Interest the efleot of this novel, extraordinary, and unique mission to the Court of Vienna.
