THE PIOCHE DAILY RECORD.
TC Eft DAY.. .ALWCST IS. mis 'THE PRECIOlM METALS." la tht ImI number of tha Nsw York Herald to hand, find ia an article on tha tilrsr question the following para graph: ' For tha preaatit, at leaat, ai. rar li not among tha precious tnetaU, botweaeano particnlar raaon to be moan that fact. Iron ii not a precious metal, bat it ia very oeefal for all that. The tarn thing ia trae cf copper, tin nd tine, but none of tbeae are eo orna mental aa eilrer. Tha cheaper silver be- comet the mora general will be ita use and wa coofeaa to a preference for it in tb tbapc of a teapot to Ibat of the lega1 tender dollar. The tffecta of a sudden lau in ma vias or each an article are apt to be permanent, because it reveals what waa unsuspected before. Wa aee in tha depreciation and fluctuation of ailTer a proof that it ia mere commodi ty affected by the law of anpply and de mand. Thia baa ner.r happened to gold, aod until now it oarer happened to enter, bdouij eilrer continaa to be governed by thia law of trade ita use aa a money standard will ba oat of the que, tion, and nntii wa know whether tha de preciation ie to ba permanent tha only aafe coaree will be to let Well enoogb alone." Tha above can ba oonaidered aa a lair average of Eastern argument and idea relative to silver. A good many old man and woman aitting on hish-baoked ditorial obalra bare faint notion that silver ia gonged out and broken of in big chanka in Nevada and atraight-way ran into coin. IDs uerald ia tickled at tha idea that a teapot ia better form and nae of ailver than a United States dollar, end throughout the whole of the artiola referred to epeaka deprecatiogly ol that metal. No apecioosoeea of argument in the Herald or elsewhere can degrade ail ver from ita rank aa a precious metal. Disousaion on that point is unnecessary. The Herald thinks tha full ia ailver will reault in permanent depression "because it reveala what was UDSaapeoted before." The sudden revealiug of unexpected statoa by no meant insures its peruian- enoe, serving rather as a contrary argon ment. Silver is daily appreciating in the London market. Other causes, now being understood are at work to produce a better feeling. A late issue of the London Nowa: " Wc have received from the Manager of the Denton Bank a rather long letter on the subject of the stock of silver on band in Germany. He denies empbatioally tha statements wbiob have been made that tha stock consists of many millions, that the Government in tends to offer so many hundred tons per month, aod that attempta have been made to force sales at the reduoed prioes. He says that tha present available stock it only 300,000 to 100,000; that the sales have only averaged two or three millions sterling a year, and large offers at present prices have been refused. Those who are competent to form an epiuion in Berlin only estimate the available earplug at aeven and a half millions, and as the old silver is oomiog in slowly tha present stook is not likely to be unduly inoreaaed." This, together with tbe late report of the English Silver Commission, tbe appointment of a similar Amerioaa Commission, and the dissipation of oertain extravagant re ports render it extremely probable that tbe late panicky feeling will be entirely dissipated and silver regain its normal value. But iu the extract wa have quoted the Herald says " We see in tbe deprrcintion and fluctuations of silver a proof that it is a mere commodity effeot. sd by tbe law of anpply and demand. Tbis bat never happened to gold, aod uniil now it never happened to silver." Tbe Herald is totally iu error. Gold va lias aod baa varied in value just as si I ver. Ia 1857, Chevalier, an eminent French financier, argued that silver was about to chitoge pUoes with gold aud wanted Franoe to demouet'Zi gold aud elevate silver. At tbe time Chevalier waa in a certain measure right, the only mistake be made being in carrying his conclusions too far. No product of earth is immutable, gold has appreciated and depreciated again aud agtin, but as it is tbe most valuable metal in general use tha process is somewhat bidden.. A good many people will remember that a quarter of century ago dollar would buy a great deal more than it will now. M. Lavasstur, a Freoob statistician, has figured up tbe average inoresse iu lbs necessaries of life as 25 per oent. This 25 per cent, represents tbe depreciation in gold sinoe 1850. English economists have, after careful examination, arrived at the same conoluaion. Thua we see that gold has fallen as much in value as ailver. Tbe difference in the deprecia tion of the two metals ia: first gold fell more gradually than silver tor obvious reasons; second, the only wsy to note the fall of gold is in tbe higher rate of provisions, clothing, Ac, while gold it self has always served as valuation standard for its sister metal. Tel tbe Herald talks flippantly about Silver tea pots, snd assures us that gold never has depreciated iu value, and implies that it never oan. In like strain other papers jabber about silver costing $2 per pound to mine, and suggesting that it be quoted with lead, tin, sioo, &o., and swing through column after column of kindred bosh in a low attempt to degrade Neva da's metal. Yesterday' quotation in tbe London market " silver steady at 63, " is the best argument we know of against the attempt of Eastern journ als to place silver on a level with baser metals, If we can place any faith in the ver acity of squaws it would seem from tbe telegraphio reports published this morn ing that Sendantary Taurus, or Beoum bent Bison, or Sitting Bull (be has dif ferent aliases) may have studied Frenob and read Napoleon's tactics in vain. Tbe Whits Pine News is in favor of having telegraphio oommuoloatloo with Ward City. 'Tie good idea. Edwin Booth will shortly appear before Sao Francisco fool-lights for tha first tin in twenty years. ALtBI.Ht CLAIMS. Tbe Court of Claims, which has hsd its time txlcnded six months mors, bat a new species of demand brought before it, becked by recent letter from Caleb Cashing, the veteran diplomat, who rendered each valaable assistance to tbs United States Government at Genoa. It was diaeovered sometime ago that after all tbe direct claims had been filed aud aggregated there would still remsin one and one-half million dollars una warded. Thia tbs insurance companies claimed ss compensation for losses on vessels destroyed by confederate cruisers aod paid for by tbs underwriters. Tbs argument waa asserted in opposition that on account of tbe extra tits the in surance companies bad advansed the general rates of marine insaranoe and bad in reality made money in stead of losing it. And cow comes tbis letter from Caleb Cashing wherein he says that tbe extra million and a half was intended by the nigh loiot uommesion to cover the expense to merchants and shippers entailed by the extra war premium, so that tbe mer chants throughout tbe country who in war times paid tbs high rate of insurance are combining and hiring attorneys to put their case through. This disposition looks the fairest. The next thing in or der is: now much does the atlnte Caleb get for bia opinion? J, C. Baoon, ol Genoa, who it is evi dent will never be saved by tte sugar coring process, pays a low neat and graoeful complimeuta to tbe pnp-rs of that section of Nevada in the following extract from a letter to a New York periodical. Perhaps it is a credit to journalism to aay that two-third of tbe newspapers of mis coast are edited and printed by typos; but the tone of the average Pacific Coast journal does not discloon such a Inot to your correspondent. Vitupera tion and vile slang make up the tummum bonum of our representative journals; KraoelU'ly intertwined, or perhaps it would be better to say, bopelesslv blend ed, with ssloon puff, aud malicious iu uuendoes. ornately expressed, snout public officers who reside afar off. There are no articlea of sober reasoning to be seen in the papers of this region. All tbe better qualities of journnlism seem to be drowned in beer, and the lecherous irreverenoe of insulting, yet carefully qualified, blackmail which we are forced to read in our local and oiher sheets, is discouraging to a lover of literature or a well wisher of tbe "art preservative." The late bitter discussion in the Senate reads well. To show that be bad not, as charged, thrown off on hit Republican friends, President Grant sent a speoial message in reference to tbe Hamburg " massacre " to Congress, simply for po litical effeot, and used tbe prestige a " President's message " possesses to create soma more bitter feeling, as if enough did n't exist already. Then commenced a sectional wrangle, lasting four or five days, at a cost of $20,000 a day, whether 10,000 copies of tbe Mam burg message should or should not be printed and distributed. Bather costly campalgu printing whichever way it goes. Nickel. Until a few years ago tha only mines ol this metal were across tbe Atlantic, and till quite reoaotly, a mine near Lancaster, I'enu., yielded nearly all the niokel used by the U. S. Mints and in tbe manufactures. A new sonroe of supply is opened up ia Colorado, and as it oan be worked profitably will prob ably obviate tbe necessity for further im portation. Nickel is worth about $2.50 per pound and is of great use in the arts. In bis letter ol aoeeptauos, Governor Tilden asserted that the interest on tbe U. S. bonds was payable in gold. Con gressional authority on fioanoe declares that such is not tbe oase, the act of Con grte simply specifying coin. H'l need hardly wonder at tbe assertions of minor financiers when tbe great reformer him self slips so badly. Ech day's seeMou ot Congress ooets tbe country (20,000. If the Forty fourth Congress sits till October 1, 1876, it will be the longest session iu Amerioan bis tory. Thus far the longest baa been from D.c tuber 3, 1840, to September 30, 1850, when tbe "compromise measure were passed. . Siuce Queen Victoria baa added to her titles that of "Emprtss of India," her name appears at tbe head of the British Army List as oommander-in- ohiel of the forces.

Drais, just in from tbe Babbit Hole Sulphur mines, gives tbe Silver Stats the following particulars of a fire which accidentally broke out in tbe MoWorihy mine last week. The mine bad been bonded to a New York com pany, who were engaged iu prospecting it. Tbev had run a drift sixteen feet into solid sulphur, which had to be blast ed. The miners fired a blast juBt ss tbey quit work in tbe evening and left for their camp, some distance from the mine. Tbe lose or burning powder tired tbe sulpbur, which burned all nigbt and next morning wben tbe men re turned to work tbey were surprised to see a stream of burning brimstoue flow lug from the mine, and torming a lake iu tbe fl it bottom. Tbey immediately set to work to extinguish tbe flames, but, as water was scaroe, in spite of their ef forts it continued to burn for nearly three days. It is estimated that there is at least five hundred tons of brim stone refined by tbe fire, and, ready for shipment in the raviue, and that not more than seventy-five tons was burned. The tire prospected th mine to the satisfaction of tbe Nin York company, and saved in time and labor the value ol the sulpbur buroed.
