OTTS PUBLIC DEBT AS CONDUCTED UNSEB A DEMOCEATIC ADMIHI3- TBATIOB- The loudest blaster and the most brass falsifications of Democratic ora tors and writers are made to convey the impression that owing to the blun ders and corruptions of " The Radi cals," the nation is burdened with a debt as large ns it is unnecessary. For tunately the people cannot be misled with regard to the cause of the debt which was a rebellion waged by the Democracy of the South and sustained by their Copperhead allies of the North neither are they to be deceived by the misstatements of those who favored the creation of Jeff. Davis' Treasury while attempting to beggar the Treas ury which sustained the Union arm during the war. But in this connection one historical fact is to be remembered It is, that during Buchanan's adminis tration, when Howell Cobb, (who was a rebel Brigadier General during the war) was Secretary of the Treasury, he so manipulated the financial affairs of the Republic as to make it impossible tc negotiate loans at a less rate than 12 per cent ; and that by reason of thi3 the loans effected bv the Government n the early part of the war involved (be pavment of interest ranging, in some instances, as high as 8 per cent the later sis per cent, loans being made while the war was at its bight as was also the patriotism of the coun try. The Hon. F. E. Spinner, Treas urer of the United States, (whose name s known to everybody who has ever een a greenback) furnishes forth the following interesting statements of fact: Howell Cobb, formerly Speaker of a Dem.

R.'solrcd, That the Cnin Republican Convention of the State of Nevada endorse unconditionally the platform adopted by the National Convention of the Union Republi :m pa..v if l h!cRo. May 20th, 1SGS.

Resolved, That in Schuyler Coifax we rec ognize a firm, consistent patriot, a true friend t the Pacific Coast, a wise statesman, and one who in the councils of the nation second ed the eibrts of his chief upon the field. R:iolved, That on this, the anniver.-ary cf Mexican independence, we congratulate our sister republic that by the bravery of her peo ple they hive obtained their present position among the Republics of the world ; and tlo;t rlie byuipathy of true Union men is with tvery "pt: p!e, everywhere, who are struggling 1 for t'h-. ir liberti.-s. Rcso red, That being, a9 a party in favor of of intelligent sustruge only, we heartily endorse the action of our Xationil Conven ti an in its position of leaving to Nevada and all other loyal States the undisputed right to regulate the question of sutfrage for them selves. Resohed, That we have unabated confi dence in the coastancv, conscience and cour age, the noiver. patriotism and purpose of the i people of the United States, who, in war and ocratic House of Representatives, late Bris tlier Ocneral m the late army of the late PonfrrpratR Statpa nf Ampriea am! thpn luchanan's Secretary o f the Treasury, car- red these securities in his carpet-baff in blanks to the city of New York, and after slanderine the stocks, traducing the credit of the Government, and announcing his onm ion that they never would be paid, but that he must have the money for them at anv rate, ottered them on the market, and then filled up the interest blauks at such rate as is political friends chose to ask him to in sert. Most of them were paid in cold, with the stipulated exorbitant rate of interest aded, alter 1 came into tins omce, and iter the war had began, and when, notwith- tandins all this, the Government was then obtaining loans at six per cent, per annum. This loan was made, too, within a very short time after the same honest Democratic Sec retary of the Treasury had been using the funds in the Treasury, intended for the cur rent expenses of the Government, in buvine up in the market the six per cent, bflnds of the Lnited Mates, tnat naa tnen many years to run to maturity, at about twenty percent, above their par value. Think of it. He bought the immatured six per cent, stocks at 120, and immediately thereafter, in an appar ent time of profound peace, and when money was abundant, sold securities receiwni? par and stipulating to pay at the end of one year 112. Was Cobb a fool, think yu r Not at all ; he knew exactly what he was driving at. He was already at that early day a traitor, and hoped, by his rascally man agement to so cripple the resources and de range the finances of the Government in whose service he then was, and whose inter est and honor he had sworn, for pay, f. protect, as to make secession easy and sure. This man, too original ' earpet-baggpr," is now, as he was then, a leader and a shininq light in the Democratic party. But this wus only a part of the great conspiracy. While Cobb was accomplishina this, hi great financial achievement in the interest of the coming rebellion, Thompson, thrn Sec retary of the Interior, made away with the Indian amnesty trust funds belonsjins to the Government ; Floyd, Buchanan's im maculate Secretary of War, robbed thp Northern forts and arsenals of the arms and munitions of war and transported them South to be used against the Government and for its deduction, and Toucey, the then Secre tary of the Navy, a specimen brick of Con necticut Democracy, fearing the loyalty and patriotism of our naval commanders, or dered our vessels of war to unheard of places in far distant seas, where they could by no possibility be needed, but where they would be beyond the reach of recall by the Government in the day of its peril. This is the party and these arc the men that now canvass and solicit the votes of an out raged loyid people. Really, their former rascality is outdone by their present impu dence. HOW BLAIR'S BEVOLTJTIOHAEY SEITTIKENTS ABE RECEIVED AT THE SOUTH. The recent riots and murderons raids upon the Union men of the South by the Ku Klox Elan ; the bold, fierce enunciations of rebellious sentiments that are daily ottered by such fire brands as Toombs, Wise, Hampton and Forrest ; all the behavior cf the friends of the lost cause prove to us how ripe Grant's paroled prisoners are for an other outbreak ajainstthe loyal author ities of the nation. These acts and thrca'g are proof enough ; but when they are corroborated by such avowals as the following from the Memphis (Tenn.) Avalanche, who can doubt that the Copperheads of the North and the unrepentant rebels of the South are in Iiingue to accomplish the worst ends of the Secession reactionists. After pub lishing Blair's Broadhead letter, the Avalanche says : I For uttering similar sentiments to the above, we have been denounced and called imprudent. Had the above extract appeared in the Avalanche as editorial, the political fossils would have raised their hands in holy horror, and stismatized us a revolutionist. We would have been taunted with the worn- out, stereotyped complaint that such impru dent expressions injure the Northern De mocracy and the Southern people in the -North.

Dear mother, may God bless you. Ri fi'8 B. Anderson GSACE GEEEHWOOD 03 GSA2TT- We make the following extract from a letter written by Grace Grpenwood and published in the London Star of the 2Gth ultimo : I lately met our probable next President, General Grant, in an informal nay, at the studio of an artist, who was modelling a bust of him. This sculptor, Mrs. Ames, of Bos ton, a lady of extraordinary genius, has exe cuted the only fine bust of Mr. Lincoln we have. It has lately been purchased by Con fess for the Capitol. I wish there were a higher endorsement of its artistic merit. But art is slow where society is fast. There be many who find the character of Mr. Grant a batiiin? and impenetrable mystery who imagine sonuthinir Jesuitical!- dark and sub tle in his imperturbable ouietude and reti cence in the impassive fate, from w hich all merely curious looks glance olf. There be others w ho, seeing nothing but the rcniaik ab!e simplicity and straightforwardness of the man, pronounce him common-place and shallow.

Anderson by name, is under sentence of death in Lander county. They are also, many of them aware that strenuous efforts are being made by mother, Mrs. Zutman, to procure a commutation of his sentence to impris onment for life. At the request of that unfortunate and deeply sorrowing lady, we eive place in our columns to the fol owing letters one from her son's eacber, and the other from the prisoner bimself : Rufus B. Anderson was a pur-il of St. Aus- iu's School, from Julv, ISG7, till within a few weeks of the most unhappy occurrence for which he is now sentenced to suiicr the ex treme penalty of the law. Whiie he was mending my school, 1 can unnesititingiv testify that his conduct and behavior were not only unexceptionable, but in the higuest ae- ;ree exemplary, lie was, in every respect. a model pupil ; and stood so high in my es timation and regard that I generally entrust- d him with the supervision of the other uu- oils, when any thing occasioned mv tempo rary absence from the schoolroom or play round. Seusitive to reproof as a little girl : in all his relations with me and with his school-feilows be manifested a disposition so gentle and so kind, that it is most difficult to reconcile it with the heartless depravity of a hardened criminal ; and indeed, he was al most the last person on earth to whom I would have imputed premeditated guilt. Endowed with the rarest gifts of a mind of the very highest order, he labored so zealous-1 ly and successfully to repair the defects of an eye in the strong, reticent mouth in the Gaelic jaw, firmly, but not fiercely set in the indescribable air of self-possession and elf-reliance that envelopes the man some thing as far as possible removed from pre tension or hauteur, but a more etfectnal de fence than either could be. He is a small man, who never is guilty of the disastrous mistake of seeking to make the most of him self by stretching up or swelling out; not in manner, walk, voice, or speech does he over sti p the modesty of nature. If a stranger were seeking lor him in a group of our most distinguished men, I shjuid say : fix on the mostsilent, plain, (not ugly.) undemonstra tive man present it is Grant. 1 here should have oeen a sign of the Kose, and the wise Ulysses should have been born nder it llis good angel has a,wavs had her good finger on her lips long may she keep it there! It will be pleasant to have "a few flashes of silence" from a Presidential can didate. The gentleman from Pckin hit upon national vice too much talk. The most fatal of gifts is that whih is vulgarly called the gift of the gab." J.

Dear Mother I should have written to you before ; indeed, I should have written to you everyday, but, until yesterday, I did not know where you was. I was informed several days ago that you had gone to Sacramento. Frank Walsh sent me a note yesterday, informing me that you was still in Carson. He told me you was well ; God knows how glad I was to hear it, for I expected to hear of your being sick, and I can hardly believe otherwise, but I hope fur the best. Your task is a hard one, and I nrav God to give you strength. I Q Ths Oslt Evening Paper.

In the presence of several persons he paid over the amount due the Democratic Club of which he tens a member, requested that his name iniiiht be stricken from the rod and declared his intention of voting for Grant and Colfax.

That Chinese Tkkaty. The Dem ocrats misrepresent the late Cbine.-e treaty by saying that it admits Chinese children to our Common Schools. Here is the section, which is very plain, viz : Art. 7. Citizens of the United States shall w, .dear mother, tnat the dreadful and , CI, jov ai tjje privileges of public educational msr.ingoiowisyei tocome ; a me uupe institutions, under the control of the Gov- of commutation. And, dear mother, I dread the hour when the terrible truth shall be made known to you may God give you strength to bear it. Poor Mary is here ; she was in to see me yesterday ; she is looking very bad, though she does not complain, and persists in saving shp is well. Poor sister, howmuch she has suffered for me. I wish I couid take the heavy load of sorrow from both of your heans, and suffer for you ; I think of you when walking my cell floor, and feel as though my heart would burst ; but I am powerless "to sllay your suffering. I have, when thinking of you, prayed that I might be snared for your sake; and then the thoughts of being buried in prison walls, until I had become aged and decrepid, with that future that might have been mine for ever blasted, makes ma almost wish that death would coma to my relief. My darling mother, how jou have managed to struggle ernment of ( hma, and reciprocally Chinrse subjects shall enjoy all the privileges of the public educational institutions tinder the con trol of the Government of the United St ates, which are enjoyed in the respective countries by th citizens or subjects of the most favor ed nations. The citizens of the United States may freely establish and maintain schools within the Empire of China, at those places where foreigners are by treaty permitted to reside, and reciprocally Chinese subjects may enjoy the same privileges and immunities in the United States. The meaning of the article is evident. Tbe military and nuval schools are the only ones nnder tbe control of the Gov ernment, and those alone the Govern ment has tbe right to open to Chinese or anybody else. LATEST DESCRIPTIONS!
