GORDON. a mukphis cotton factory, Statesmariabip naya "in time oi peace prepare for war;" good business policy bids in "in titno ol quiet to prepare for activity." Wo are at a timo of quiet now. Various circumstances thai have occurred at home and abroad have re duced trail e to a condition of stagnation. Jn this time of quiet there is opportunity for thinfelnrr and planning for the fu ture. In Memphis we Lave special rea eons for reflection and preparation. The changes that are going on by which our agricultural population are about to supply themselves with breadstuff's, vegetables and meals, although au ex cellent and most desirable thing, and one which all our Intelilgent' merchants' have done their beat to encourage, , is a cause of a partial loss of business to us. The feed business has already eunk "down to a little more than a supply of the public and privato stables in the city and neighborhood; the lard and bacon trade will pass away In the same man ner how will the vacuum thus created 1)9 filled? The effects of the change in southern agriculture is already pointing this out. to some extent. If we do not import norlhern produsts we shall ex port southern ones, as our trade in pota toes and fruits has already demon' strated. The turn of trade in this direc tion, by the full opening of navigation to the sea by Eada'a jetties, will also furnish sources of trade. But when all ii considered, we cannot but feel that wo want in Memphis something more solid and enduring than a mere distributing trade, by which -we are dependent upon receiving mate rial from one quarter to send it to another. That sort of trade is exposed to a thousand influences, over many of which wo have no control whatever. A new railroad, a chango in the direction of the river's course, or other things, may alter the direction of a mere distributing trade; increare it without effort of the parties benefited, or decrease it in spite of the most courageous effort. We therefore want together with oar dis tributing trade something cf an abid ing kind, something for which people must come to Memphis in any event. That something is manufactures. Man ufactures do not merely distribute wealth, they create It. Rough mate ria), of moderate value, is converted in to wrought merchandise of considerable worth. A pound of iron received and shipped away is of no more value on leaving than when arriving; but the city that turns the crude metal into watch-springs before shipping it off again, has created wealth within itself, and as long as it re tains its skill and watch springs are wanted, it has a permanent hold on the business. If wo in Mem phis, in tnis timo of stagnation, are to provide for coming activity, to what should we turn our attention? Evi dently to spinning cotton. That Is what onr situation adapts us4for. When we ship offa bale of cotton to the con sumer, the intrinsic value of the bale is no greater than it was when it Teached us from the packer; but let us spin it, and wo have vastly enlarged its value, and the amount of tha increase is our profit. We maintain many fami lies of citizens, who buy their goods from us and add to our trade, and they and their children after them continue in future time to Increase our sources of wealth. The woolen mill just opened in Fort Pickering is employing seventy five persocs already, an addition of seventy-five steady and permanent customers to our stores, occupants of our housas, consumers of our produc tions. "In time of stagnation prepare for activity," and now Is the moment to etart the long talked of Memphis cotton factory. Eastern spinners say the time is approaching when they shall have to move their mills" to the coffon. If" wo start now, we shall be ahead of them. At this time capital is superabundant; the banks groan with the weight of thoueanda now lying idle; the money can therefore be readily found for start ing a cotton factory in Memphis. While money is In plenty, never was there a timo when as much could be gained by it as now, for ground for building Is cheap, material Is cheap, machinery is cheap. A cotton factory started at pres ent prices will, when trade is again act ive, have acquired a value far beyond its cost, merely irom advance of prices; therefore, the time to start It is now. How is the lime '.for .stockholders a heavy interest will ac crue from what is bought at present prices. Mills working hero could take eeed-cotton, gin it for themselves, and w jrk It p withouMtfivejRoirJgthrough fas pieesandtoUiebaJfrr-thlsisa vait advantage iaffiie spinning, the cotton being "In its " very befit condition fcr working. Goods made, from fresh, un pressed cotton are not only cheaper, but much beltcrnd are In favor with buy ers. We should have a home market for all we could produce. We import vast amounts of goods that we should gladly buy liomermade, if wo could, be cause the quality would be so much bet ter. Multltudts of good and nound rea3on3 exist for spinning our own cot tou Into gooda our own wear, rather than paying-the expanse of tho cotton going afar dff to bs manufactured, and then coming back In the shape of goods; but every think ing person can sea them for himself. Our motto in starting a cotton-mill should, therefore, be to make it pay. To J 3 this, care mu3t be taken nol to put all tho money subscribed into a building, and then leave business to bo done on borrowed capital. Such folly has brought to grief many an enterprise that was sound In principle. It is the circulating capital, not the fixed, that make3 for tunes. A hundred thousand dollars in tho ehape of a building remains where it is put, but a hundred thousand dol lars changed into material and labor comes back again with other dollars, and can bo again used, and again bring a profit. Now is. the time to alart the Memphis cctton factory; only prudence is wanted to make mccess certain, and money laid out on cuch an object, at this period of low prices, would not only bring success, but brilliant success. THE CONVENTION. niogTApttien! fiktclios Conclmlcrt from i First Pase. known as "secret account" and hand ed them to the trees for publication. They showed iht jitesand anionic of certain paymen'.s made by the comp troller, tne enormous amountsof which, cim'pared with the time3 and purposes ortue payments and the recurrence of Ihe same nnmerf, "awakened suspicions that they were the memorials of the grossest-frauds. Mr. Tilden soon became satisfied of this, from the futility of the answers received from the city officers when1 questioned about them and from other souroee, arid reached the conclu sion that the'dty had been tho victim of frauds fax transcending anything ever 8n3nectedi Ke jnimeaiatly formed his plan, for the execution of which as It involved phe control of tho approaching State convention the co-operation of seVcral leading Democrats was first se cured. He accepted an arrangement by which ho was te be sent to the conven tion from his native district, Columbia county,, whion had always during the ring ascendancy afforded him that op portunity1 nf being heard. Early in September he Issued a letter to some' seventy-six thousand Dems crats, reviewing the situation and call ing upon them "to take a knife and cut the cancer out by the roots." But be fore tho meeting of' the convention an event happened which could not have been foreseen, but1 Trhich was pregnant 'with the most important consequences. To the eternal honor of the Democratic party of the city and State, on the is43Ue thus madenp by Mr. Tilden they gave him their! cordial and irresistible sup port. The result "was overwhelming, ana noc oniy cnangea me city repre sentation in the legislative bodies of the State; but; in Its most moral effect, crushed the "ring."

Mr. Tilden gave his chief attention during the ses sion of ' tha legislature to the Eromotion of those objects for which e consented to .go .there, the re form of the judiciary and the Im peachment of tne creatures who had acquired the control of it under tha Tweed dynasty. Mr. Tilden had thus, by his bold acts, made himself promin ent in thd work of reform, and recog nized as the man to lead it in the State. PromlnentfrlenOs of reform urged him to accept the 'nomination for governor. Tney faiu ne couia ne nommatea witn out difficulty1, anil elected triumphantly, and in his triumph the great cause of administrative reform wouiu receive an impulse which would propagate it not only over; tho whole State, but; over tho union, mj.

It was the only wa in which be could satisfactorily uo inonstrate that a course of fearless and persistent resistance to "Wrong will he vindicated -and sustained by the masses of the people; that honesty and courage are aa serviceable qualities, and as well rewarded, in politics as in any other T J 1 F J ' TT. . proiession or pursuit in me. xi was uu willing 10 leaVe It in -the power of the enemies ol rerorni 10 say mat ne uarea not submit his oonduct as a reformer to the Judgmentof the people; to Bay that ins course naa ruined nis mnuence; mat his name should bs a warning to the. rising pOlitifjians of the country against A1 Innri rV It to nvo m nln TT fil f -ttrh a f ever mlght.be the result of his adminis tration, the.moral effect cf his election would be advantageous in his own State and also throughout the country. But for the3d considerations Mr. Tilden would have allowed himself to be made the candidate .of the Democratic party for tne senate of the, united (states, a po sition more congenial to his tastes, and for which! his personal preferences were well known. He was nominated and elected, 'and whatever leesoiis or elo quence could ba expressed in big major ities were not wanting to lend their eclat to his trinmpb. Mr. Tilden's plurality over John A. Dix, the Republican can didate, was 53,315. Mr. Dix had been elected two years previously by a plu rality of 63;451. The first message of Governor Tdden foreshadowed with dis tinctness ithe controlling features of his administration. Firef Reform in the administration. Second The restoration of the finan cial principles and policy which tri- umpnea in tne election ol Jacuson ana VanBureu, and which left the country without a dollar of indebtedness in the world and a credit abroad with which no other nation could then compete. In furtherance of his policy of admin istrative reform, he recommended a re vision of the laws intended to provide criminal punish ment and civil remedies for frauds by public officers and by per sons acting in complicity with them. These recommendations, during the same session carefully wrought into the legislation. ol tue tolate, bore especially upon thteeformsofadrnini8trativeabuse whiclLthe exposure and arrest of W. M.Tweea naa recently revealed.and also upon and another kindred class of abuses in tiiemanagement of our canals, with which tho governor .was already acquiuuted, but of which the public as yet had only an imperfect realization. But the feature of the message which prouucea, peruaps, me mott profound impression, not only upon bis own im mediate constituents,but upon the whole nation, -was that which related to the financial policy of the Federal irovr-rn. ment A generation had grown up who had never seen or nsad any other money than a printed promise of the rrovrn- ment, andit had become a widespread convicuau among tne aspiring politi cians of both the great parties that the current public opinion in favor of an inflated and irredeemable currency would overwhelm and destroy any man who would attempt to stem it. No couvsntiou pf either party in any State of tho U oion Jiad ventured tho experi ment: the active )f.llprn nf Iw.ll, liad either avoided or vieldp.l to the current. Mr. Tilden deemed It his duty to less no time in advocat-ing-tho only financial policy which ever had insured or can Insure a substantial and enduring national prosperity. On the nineteenth of March, and as soon as he had secured from the legisla ture such additional remedies for official delinquencies as were requisite for his purpose, the governor in a special mes sage invited the attention of the legisla ture to the mismanagement of the canals. He pointed out in this communication with considerable detail the fraudulent processes by which for an indefinite period of years the State had bu iuc dered, its agents uebaUcbed, its politics demoralized and its credit Imperilled. The fulness, boldness and directness of his statements produced a profound Im- Ereasion, not only throughout the State, ut throughout the country. The legis lature, though containing in both branches many of the most notorious canal jobbers, and constituted largely in that interest, was obliged to yield to the Irresistible public sentiment th'ch the governor's policy and message had awakened, and granted him the author ity to nrme such a commission. The results of the Investi gations, communicated to him Irom time to time during the summer of 1875, and .to the succeeding legis lature of 1876, attested completely the system of fraudulent expenditure on the canals which he bad denounced at the bar of public opinion. Through the adoption of varicu3 other financial mea sures upon his recommendation) and by the discreet but vigorous airercise of the veto power, the governor was, fortunate enough to sscurba reduction of the State tax the first year of his administration, about seventeen per cent and to in augurate a financial policy by which the State tax, which was seven and a half mills on the dollar of the assessed valuation when he came into office, will be reduced to four mills at least at the expiration of his term of two yearn, and at the expiration of the ncst-ouc ceeding year to not exceedfrg three mill?. Mr. Tilden is now in the sixty-third year of his age. He is fiva feet ten inch es in hlght, and he has what physiolo gists call the purely nervous tem perament, with its usual accompan iment of spare figure, blue eyes and -fair complexion. His hah, originally chsst nut, is now partially silvered with age. At the Dtfca convention resolutions were passed presenting his name as a candidate for Die Presidency, and re questing the delegates to vote as a unit. VHOStAS ANDREWS HENDRICKS. Governor Hendricks, of Indiana, wra born in Muskingum county, Ohio Sep tember 7, 1819. His father removed to Shelby county, Indiana, when the sub ject of this sketch was only three years old. The fact that he was born in a neighboring State has not affected his popularity in Indiana, since many of the people are of the same stock, and Mr. Hendricks, growing up from child hood with tha younger commonwealth, became identified with all its interests its prosperity and prejudices. No man in the State is now more generally loved, and certainly no ono is less hated. His youth was not a season of hardship, and he" received. a liberal education, graduat ing at Hanover college in 1841. He then studied law at Chambersburg, Pennsyl vania, and was admitted to the bar at that place in 1843. He returned to In diana immediately after and entered upon the practice of his profession. His success was rapid and well earned. There was always a charm about him that won him hosts of friends. He was pure in morals, and not merely upright' in character, but eolicitious to preserve himself from. even the appearance of evil. He was careful in money matters and slowly accumulated his present moderate fortune, although his practice was often interrupted by political ser vice and and his expenses increased to .meet the social requirements of official station. At tlie bar lie was distinguish ed for learning, subtley and eloquence. His temperment is such that at times he flings aside his habitual courtesy and caution, ana gives iree rem to nis ag gressive impulses. He was ever on such occasions & dangerous opponent, in comparing him as a lawyer with hi s rival, Morton, it is common to say that Hendricks was apt to be worsted before a jury and his rival naa no chance be fore a judge. Xn la43 Mr. -tLenuricKB was cno3en a member of the State legislature, and In 1850 he served in the State constitution al convention. Daring tho next five years he represented the Indianapolis district in congress, and for four years afteiward was commissioner of the general land office. In the memorable campaign of 1860 he ran for governor against Henry S. Lane and was defeat ed. Lane was chosen United State3 senator immediately after his inaugura tion, and Oliver P, Morton succeeded to the governorship. In the election of 1862 there was a political revulsion, and ' Indiana elected a Damocratic legisla ture. Mr. Hendricks was then chosen senator for the terni ending in March 18G9. He served in the committees on claims, publio buildings and grounds, the judiciary, public lands and naval affairs. This was a period during which the Democratic party in the senate was represented by a weak minority. Noth ing was possible save un able protest against tne various reconstruction meas ures adopted, and this was to be made in tne face oi strong popular prejudice throughout the country as well as strong opposition in the senate chamber. Mr. Hendricks at once tool: the lead among the Democrats and made for himself a national reputation. It is a common criticism upon him that he is timid and cautious. Let those who think so read the debates during his term of office, and they will be aston iahed to find the. Indiana senator ever active and atrtrresslve. They may not agree with all. his opinions, but they will be struck with the frankness and boldness with which he maintain ed them. If left to himself he seems cold as flint, but the clash of a peisonal encounter kindles him into tire. He wa3 active in opposition to the measure overturning tne oia tstate governments, tho imposition of test oaths, the civil rights bill, the freedman's bureau bill and kindred legislation. He shaped bis political conduct upon tho theory that the prosperity pf the white people of the south, even though they bad been rebels, was a matter of more importance than the prosperity of the negroes. If either race was to go to the wall he thought it should be the black race; but he held that in the natural supremacy of the white race was a guarantee or the safety of all. Exalting the freed- men into a governing class and disfran-, chismg tneir masters ne neiu to D9 as evil a system as slavery. His arguments on the great questions of that day have been adopted as the authoritative state ment of Democratic opinion in the summaries of congressional donates, in the memorable episode of the Presi dent's impeach ment. he played an im portant part, and added greatly to his reputation aa an able lawyer. It is a Eufficient proof of the ability and success of Mr. Hendricks in the senate that toward the close of a singlo term he had placed himself among the foremost men of his party and be come a prominent candidate for tho Presidency. In the convention of 186S be was brought forward, and at one time led all other candidates, receiving the solid vote of New Yore, and the northwest. Ohio, however, which had been compelled to abandon, its own can didate, was determined to defeat all other western men, and the delegates from that State, threw their votes for Horatio Seymour persistently, and final ly produced a stampede of the whole convention to his support. His nomi nation at that time was unfortunate. For years the friends of. Governor Hen-, dricks cherished a feeling of bitter ani mosity toward their Ohioneighbors,and to this day have not quite forgiven sun dry New York politicians, who, they imagine, secretly aided and abetted the manravrn nf PnnillRton's sUDDOrterd to secure the nomination . of Seymour. They have always held that the nomi nation of their own favorite would have turned tho political tide. This 1b mere nonsense, and they ought to be thank ful rather than chagrined that he wa3 not made the candidate of the conven tion. This question was virtually .de cided in Indiana that year, where ire rau for governor a second time and was a second time defeated. His opponent was Governor Conrad Baker, and so close was the contest that Mr. Hendricks only fell nine hundred and fifty-one votes behind. No ono familiar with Uie politics of the Btate eversupposed, how ever, that Baiter's msjority wm an hon est one. After his retirement from the ssnate.in 1S69, Mr. Hendricks returned to lh Eractlce of his profession, and, although e had not been successful in his can didacy' before thfl"National convention, he was at least well beforo tho country as a man to be considered on nl' occa sions when a Presidential nomination : was to bB made. Hi himself never loit the consclousp that (no oyo of the public was onhim, and alvrays acted with circumspection, as if anticipating the blaze of a national canva3s, and tie slroua of keeping his record clear. Tie unfortunate nomination of Greeley, in 1872, and the fusion With the so-called Liberal BepuHlidaria, bpatponcd. tho dty of ambition, and Mr. Hendricks, acqui escing in what appeared to bo the pops. lar will, gave in his hearty approval a the "Now Departure." He waa not al lowed to remain idle during the canvas. Against his earnest protest he was again nominated for the governorship. Tie campaign was a bitter one, pnd almost disastrous to IbeDemocracy throughout the country; The result in Indiana ww bad, but lax better than in moat Ipcau ties. The Republicans carried the Ieg& lature, and elected all of their State ticket except the governor and superin tendent of public instruction. The ma jorities were very small, but they were enough. The personal popularity or Governor Hendricks carried him through.! As a man, courteous in social intercourse, an influential member of an influential church, clean and respectable in ail his walks and ways, ho wa3 for tunate In having for an opponont Gen- eral Tom! Browne, who had served cred itably in the ,war, but who had brought Into civil life the recklessnesj and riicKiinntimi whlRh are forKiven to the soldier, but which make the states man distrusted. It was to Browne's further disadvantage that the temper-. ance sentiment was at mat ume, it hMBlnetfbeen. vervstruij Ss Indiana. and the first stirring of that spirit which afterward broke out in the temperanca ciuSado was then felt As the fanatics on this tubject are mostly Republicans, it was a severe trial to their allegiance to be compelled to vote for a man whom, had he heon a Democrat, they would have descrlbcrt aa a drunkard. Browne hardly rriended the matter by saying, in his speech before the convention which nominated him, that if by eating meat he had hitherto offended his brother, he would eat meat no more. "Eating meat" became actual piece of campaign slang. With these circumstances in his favor, Governor Hendricks won by a majority of eleven hundred and forty eight The result was not known for three or four days, as the election pre cincts id the State are very large, and when the ticket is long returns are de layed, even where there is an honest effort to. forward them. Sometimes they are delayed for fraudulent purposes. At i l. T1 L.'.L V.nnrl..n.'Vn tkn nnU. Hit) UJUIUUIAIIU ucrtuuui icio uio yvii- ticians eat counting up majorities and making estimates hour after hour, and even the, mo3t experienced arithmetic men were puzzled. Jos Bingham, the editor of the Indianapolis Sentinel, was the only one who predicted the actual result from tho beginning, and stuck to his opinion. During the long suspense Mr. Hendricks listened to an anxious friend's estimate, based on the very latest returns, and throwing him out by half a dozen votes, ana said witn a laugu, "I wontler.if I urn always to just miss oeing governor oi anuiana." The fact that a Republican lieu tenant-governor would succeed him in casa of a; vacancy kept Mr. Hendricks from any thought of the senatorship two years afterward, and chains him to his post until the end of his term. In general terms it may be said of his ad ministration that it has been able, con scientious, high-minded. He has aimed fairly to do his duty, and his official con duct cannot be criticised. His course on the liquor question has been most fre qusntly assailed,, and the matter may ba worthy of a few words of explanatioq, as it is sad that his action has alienated the German vote. It Is well to receive with caution. all the stories that are told about the .German vote, past oi- west. Briefly, the facts are these: The Kepub lican legislature chosen, in the fall of 1872 passed the following winter wuat was called the Baxter bill, after the au-thor-of it, an English Quaker and ear nest temperanca agitator, now settieu in Indiana. Tho principle of the measure is what is. known elsewhere as local op tion, and tue enect or it s.cais to ue to give drinking communities an opportu nity to gdt all the liquor they want, and, to prevent temperance communities from getting anything to drink. This bill Governor .Hendricks signed. He did so professedly iu5hedienco to the will of the majority in tho legislature and tne will or tne people, xits ap proval was merely a matter of form, as his veto couia be over-nuuen uy a sim pie majority vote. Hta own con victions were in favor of a rigid license system, and in the State convention pf 1874, at which he presided,' he set forward the Damo cratlc doctrine on that subject in a clear argument. Public opinion had so far veered around in the. meanwhile that tne Baxter bin during. tne following win ter, the senate, whicn was Republican, voting witn tne democratic nouse, Thus Mr. Hendricks's course oh the li quor question may be summed up by saying that he concurred in popular temperance legislation, which he could not prevent, and after a fair teat urged the substitution of a better system for the Baxter law. The whole legislative session of, 187o was a struggle between the houte and the senate for partisan advantage, and the decisive stroke by wnicn, tne governor, wno naa watcnea the contest impartially, stepped in in behalf, of the public good and put an end so tnestrne, was aamiraoie. une ses sion was limited by law, and the Re publican senate, adopting, tho tactics which the senate at Washington is now pursuing, refused concurrence in the measures urged by the house, and, al though, conference committees bad agreed upon all vital questions, delayed action until after midnight on the last day, hoping in- this way to block the "business of the State or force the Demo crat! into a long and expensive extra session, which.would condemn the party in a granger community. The session closed on.Saturday night, and the gov ernor issued his proclamation on Monday reassembling the legislature on Tues day, without giving, the members a chance, to scatter, and politely suggest ing that, although they liad a right to Btay there forty days, it would ba much healthier for them to do their work and go home before the close of the week. They gathered together like little lambs. The whole scheme ot making party capital, one way or other, -was aban doned. They took up their work where they had laid it down, finished it, and were gone by Saturday, much to the gratification of ail good citizsus. Since the action of the Cincinnati convention refusing to indorse txie resumption act, the financial issue will .not be likely to Elay an important part in the campaign, ut it may be well to give some facta in regard to Governor Hendricks's courso during th& great currency agitation of the last two years. At the beginning of the clamor for more money, in the fail of 1S73, he was not In any way called upon to express his opinions on finan cial questions, and although his convic tions on those topics were based on sound old Democratic principles, it was his nature to sympathize with the.dis- tress which he saw about him in every direction ratner tnso eet anoutto preacn to the people the, narrow and difficult path to salvation through self-denial, and suffering." The strength of the popular conviction that relief was pos sible through inflation could hard ly be over-estimated. Some be lieved firmly that uolimltedtquantitie3 o? naner money issued on the faith of the government was.the true American theory or nnance. umers anew mat such an issue of irredeemable paper would only anord temporary reiier, to be. followed by irreater disaster, but they hoped to he sate before the next storm, if they should weather that which was oh them. All.advocated. the inflation or the currency with a fierceness wnicu brooked no resistance, and old-fashioned lwa.loM. who mlirht have thrown them- Holvoa across, the course of publicoplnion had they Imagined wuat way it was tending, found the tide grow tqo strong and furious to withstand, and most of them went with it. Whoever was recog nized as a hard-money man was consid ered in some sort as a traitor to theiwest nnd n public enemy.

The purpose n6W avon-. isnot;an increase of the currency 80 mticb as tbe maintenance of the fireeent ctandard and ihe tutstltutioli of green backs for national bark notes.. Tbe movement has ceased tone wholly ag gressive. T7nder the circumstances, .the course of Governor Hendricks, when it became his duty to take art active part in tbe discussion of tbe issues of the day in the canvass of 1874, was wise and manly. Tobe sure, he.did notadvoca'e the sound theories of finance with, tbe vigor of Bterr or proclaim his convic tions with the good-tempered firmness of M'Donald, but ha maintained his -opinions none the lets effectively, be cause he adopted a conciliatory tone. He presided over theDemocratic con vention held in July at Indianapolis, as we have already said, and in his address on taking tha chair argued that, gold and silver were the true basis of our cur rency,' and that the proper method of re turning to specie payments was through the growing-up proccf33 the, develop ment of the resources of tbe south, the increase of production and the retrench ment of publio and private expendi tures. The platform adopted by tho convention was an essentially unsound one so far as the financial planks.are pnnfprnpd'. and in the eubseaue'nt can vass Mr. Hendricks tooS occasion to de-. fine distinctly the points and difference between its doctrines and hln own opin ions. How many of tho politicians who have been s) glib in censuring him would have done as much? It is com mon .among Republicans in the east to pretend that in this canvass the curren- ' . , tt 1L- J - cy issue was urawu uetweeu iue iwo par ties." The fact Is, both were atronRly.-for inflation, and the victory of the Demo crats was won on the general record of the administration, of which the panic or aw 1 2 lld broken the prestige. In illustration of Mr. nrHGnck's teachings at this time, w6 give an extract from his addresB to the Damp cratlc convention. After arguing against the baity contraction of onr paper circu lation checking labor and paralyzing enterpiza on the one hand, and against unduo inflation, which would, lnd to deprecation and aTeskiess spirit of speC' ulatlon and adventure on the other, ba said: "WedeaireaTeturntj specie pay ments. It is a seriou? evil whenjthere are commercial mediums of uiiTsrent values; when ono description of money is for one class and purpose and another, for a different clasj and purpose. We cannotrtoo strongly expreis the impor tance of the policy that, shall restore uniformity of value to all the money of the country, so that it tin all be always and readily convertible. That gold and, silver are! tbe real standard of value is a cherished Damocratic sentiment, not now nor hereafter to be abandondoned. ButI do hot look to any arbitrary 'enact-, ment of .congress for' a restoration of specie payments. Such an effort now would probably produce widespread commercial disaster. A congressional declaration cannot mako the paper cur rency equal to gold iu valiie. It cannot make a bank note equal to your dollar. The business of the country alone , can do that. When we find the coin of the country increasing, then we may know that we are- moving in the, direction of specie payments. Tne impoitant finan cial question is, How can we increase and make permanent our supply of go!d? The.reliable solutibri is. by in creasing our productions and thereby reducing jour purchases, and increasing our sales abroad. He can readily ob; tain money who products more than he consume of articles that are wanted in the market, and. I suppo3e that is aj-o true of communities and nations. How can the Republican pal ty atone to the people 'or lia evil policies which have driven gold Irom the country and ren dered a return to specie payments more difficult, and made its. postponement in evitable.'' In reality Gpvernor Hendricks is prob ably a more genuine hard-money man than Goytrnor Hayes, and would per haps differ from him on financial policy only in his opposition to national banks and his willingce s to substitute govern ment nofes for bank circulation. His action in going into the O'aio c.wvssj in 1875 in eupport of Mr, Allon was based upon the deairo for the success of tbe Damocracy. He deemed the triumph of tiie party in that State essential, and throw himself into the canvass heartily, hold ing that the financial ifsue was not the overshadowing one..- The great thing to gain was victory, no matter whether some of the men in the same ranks agree with him on all fine points in poli tics or not.. On questions of state policy Mr. Hendrick3 nas shown misterly knowledge; but there is one matter upon which no nas ever been especially sollc itous, namely, the school system of In dians. As a member of tbe constitu tional convention he was active in se curing amnle nrovision for nonular edu cation and placing its support beyond the vicissitudes of politics. Impressed witn tne value oi tne -ori: men nccotn ptished, he has since repeatedly insisted upon tbe mo3t anxious, watchfulness over the, growth and peifaction of the system, and relaxed in its favor his Damocratic prejudices toward strict con struction ;and economy. - Governor Hendricks is a man of me dium hight and symmetrical form. He is erect, active and vigorous. His face is manly and handsome. The features are large and expressive, while there is a soft, good-humored expression in the large blua eye and in tha mouth and dimpled chin; tbe brow, forehead and full heavy jaw show wisdom and reso lution. His complexion is florid and his hair and side whiskers are yet un touched with gray. He looks like one who has lived a happy life, encountered no great sorrows and yielded to no great vices. Though he has for years Tjeen taught to regard the Presidency as within his grasp, his ambition has been rather a sort of rational longing for tbe honor than an insatiable thirst for row er. His disposition is as sunny as his complexion, and in social life he is a great favorite. To acquaintance he is affable and easy, to close friends warm and lovable, to political partisans cour teous but cautious. He would rather conciliate an. enemy than oblige an ally. His habits are such that he found five thousand dollars a year ample for his expenditures during his, senatorial term at Washington. He has always trusted to doing the work- which he had in hand well as the highest recommendation in the long run before the people, and the many honors which have come to him seem to have been conquered without great. enort. ills voice is a rather thin tenor, and has nothing imposing in its tones, but is audible to a great distance when he speaks with earnestness. He appears to the best advantage before a crowd, for then he kindles with the en thusiasm of the occasion, and an inter ruption or a jest from some dissenting auditor is all that is necessary to make him forget his habitual deliberative cast of thought, and mng mmseii into uasn ihgand aggressivo argument One of tho features of bis career has been the long rivalry between him and Morton a rivalry in which the bitterness was all on ono side. In all combinations in his behalf his friends have taken the possi bility of tho continuance of that rivalry for the .highest priza In the nation into account. Now that Morton is out of tho field, they can probably prom!se,without a mental reservation, to carry Indiana for their favorite. Mr. Hendricks is an Episcopalian in religion. His wife is a woman of great culture and force of character one formed to be a man's comrade in the path of honor rather than a source of temptation. They have no children. Another Letter Answered.
