SEPT. 30,1871. I KEEP IT BEFORE THE PEOPLE. THAT UNDER THK FUNDING BILL THI TANF.SOF THE STATE WILL BE MOT LESS THAN ONE DOLLAR UPON j THE HUNDRED DOLLARS' VALUA TION, OR DOUBLE WHAT THEY That under the Finding Bill i NOT A DOLLAIt IN MONEY WILE EVEIt j HEACii thi: State Treasury at niE BENT HATES, AS THE COUPONS AXE ] MADE RECEIVABLE FOR TAXES, AXD j WILL ALL BE HOUOHT UP BY THE l OI'NTY TREASURERS AT A DISCOUNT, AXD TURNED OVER TO THE STATE IN ! LIEU OF MONEY ! ! We defy Treasurer Eye, or any other man. to deny these jimpositions. Why is the Richmond press silent on this question ? 'There is no more decisive confession of the weakness of a cause than the attempt on the part of its advocates to divert atten tion from the issues joined to irrelevant matters. Peter Funk stands in the dock accused by John Smith with stealing his watch. 'The proof is clear that Funk took Ihe watch. Funk's counsel is silent as to the watch-snatching, but expends volumes of legal learning, and makes himself hoarse with vociferating denunciations against Smith's relations, whom he accuses of steal in,: horses in Louisiailh antl Texas. What would the court say to such a ile fe.ise '.' Would not judge and jury accept it as the last resort of a desperate cause, presuming upon public ignorance and stu pidity in the jury box and on the bench ? Vet this is precisely the manner in which the Conservative press meets the indict ments of the Funding law, which the peo ple in their grand inquest have drawn up, and which is now on trial at the bar of pub* lie opinion. In their behalf, and not as partisans, we charged that the funding law was a fraud, taking from the people their hard earned money under the empty pretence of saving the credit of the State, but in reality to I give a fictitious value to Virginia securities I in the hands of stock-gamblers, who had I bought at low prices, and are engineering j for a rise. We have proved this by show ing the inadequacy of its provisions to save the Slate, and by showing that it already j either deceives the people, or practically i repudiates one-third of the debt, which it.has j no right to except from the common treat- i . I By showing still again that the bonds j have declined in the British market since , April steadily, with very slight oscillations, nearly six per cent. To this evidence we may add the deter mined opposition of the English bond holders to the bill. Removed from all -ipceulittivc intluences, these honest bond holders were willing to give up the back interest, in consideration of the great losses of the State, but they opposed a bill so clearly drawn in the interest of stock gam blers. We charged further, that the Treasurer had been accumulating a large sum of money, in advance of the current needs of the Slate, taking it from the country peo ple, who sorely need every dollar in their business, and concentrating it at Richmond. Here it is loaned to a few wealthy banks, at the low rate of four per cent., which banks loan it out to the people at the high rates now prevailing. The country people, from whom the money has been taken, arc compelled to sell property at a sacrifice, or borrow at twelve to fifteen per cent., meet their taxes. We have shown how this accumnlatio has been accomplished, to-wit: by carrj ing over the surplus of 1370, and the pa. six months of 187,1. during which n money lias been paid on accouut of h iercst. The Treasurer funded the interes lor 1870, and also for the first six montl of Wtl, paving it as Micawber did h pi. sing debts, with an 1 O U, and the felicitating himself upon the settlemen All this time a surplus lias been ace turn lating in anticipation ofthe funding intercs which we have no doubt will be prompt) paid, and possibly the July interest o TJ. Hut what then? Where is th money io come from when this surplus We have shown that the present rat leaves a deficiency of at least one million o dollars, giving every doubtful source of in— come the best possible showing for the _rea_nre_ Either the current expenses of t'lc State will not be paid, or the interest on it-- b.uids will not bo forthcoming. In cither case the credit of the State stands ■ij .ached before the world. Under the funding law, we must have three millions of dollars to meet the annual requirements ol'the State government. i'he pi'ucnt rate of taxation will only j ie!d about one half that amount. Now i i I clear, we niii-t either collect more mo ney, of cut down expenditures. What do ..■.I propose, gentlemen ?

If your plans nnd ■ lupuses are good they will bear tlie light; bey will survive discussion. Stop your hildish raving about "carpet-baggers," vhich make people laugh at you, and con sider this inn Iter. Tell the people how you can save the credit, and meet its obligations, with out increasing the taxes. Tell them which on will sacrifice, the schools, where their hildren are to be educated, or the claims of gambling stock brokers in New York.— 'hese questions are pressing for answer, 'lie people unskilled in abstract science can not be deceived in this distinct issue of facts, and .ill drive you from the flimsy shelter of a f1t1.4. issue, however enveloped in wordy clouds of denunciation against new publications. scrirhner's for October. It is not easy to call to mind any literary J and artistic success achieved so suddenly I and surely as that won by Scribner's Mag azine. Tho entire series, so far, is noticoa ile for an evenness of interest in the litera ry contents, anil of merit in the conception and execution of the illustrations. The l leaves brim with bright thoughts and good pictures. Tlie first page of the cover itself is a masterpiece of quiet elegance and grace —unpretending and unobtrusive—yet full if individuality. The contributions to the October number will compare favorably I vith those of any previous issue. Dr. Coau, who spent nearly the first twenty ■ears of his life within thirty miles of Kilaulea, describes, under the ti le of "An Island on Fire, " the | great volcanos of Hawaii; Mr. Lossing gives a biographical sketch of Eunice Mah wee, the last of a powerful tribe of New England Indians ; "Water—lts Ways and Uses" is a perfect specimen of popular treatment of a scientific subject; in "Was Adam the First Man ?" Mr. Faucher at tempts to show that the conceived theories of "revelation," when readjusted upon cor rect principles, will be found to tally with the latest deductions of Science; Mr. Ed ward Spencer has something worth reading on ''The Philosophy of Good Health;" Mr. S. Q. W. Benjamin pleasantly sketches his "Summer trip to Newfoundland," .Mrs. Walker contributes "The Cloak-Cubby and the 1 Hue-Room ;" Mr. Albert Web ster, Jr., puts forth a strange tale entitled 'The Eleventh C_ ;" and "Wilfrid Cum- Kii'mede" has nearly reached its fiftieth chapter, but is not approaching its conclu sion yet. There is also a small collection of good poems, and the half dozen editorial departments are excellently sustained. THE MASSACHUSETTS NOMINATION. The result of the Republican Convention n Massachusetts has been the defeat of Con. Butler by a small vote. This was brought about hy the exclusion of several lelegations favorable to him, particularly hat from the sixth ward of Boston, and by he withdrawal of most of his competitors vho transferred tlieir forces to Washburn, he successful candidate. An intense feeling of personal hostility nd jealousy was displayed in tho conven ion toward the great champion of equal ights, and no measure which the com bined power of his antagonists could wield was too gross if only his defeat could be ac omplishcd.

This artiole needs no recommendeUion, for tt r commends itself to every lady who sees it, being I most simple, eaeily-adjusted, and perfect for its v ever introduced into the market. All physician* recommend it* nse, and on whose name I* known and respected on both sid of the ocean, buys and give* away large numbe of them to his patients, declaring that most va icose vein*, weak and crippled limbs can be traced directly to the stopping of th* circulation in tb lower limbs, (and consequently in the whole sy tern,) caused by the old ligature or garter. Being made entirely of elastic it never string* or wrinkles like cloth, but Is a* flat and smooth after wearing for months as when tint used, and yield* with every motion, thn* giving entire ease to the wearer. THE PROTECTOR ALONE IS WORTH THE PRICE OF THK WHOLE ARTICLE. It is unnecessary to remove the stockings from ' the suspender except to change, and it is really less trouble than the old fashioned elastic. It keeps the stocking perfectly smooth without tear ing it, and does not injure the limb. Care should be taken that the whole article is large enough not to feel uncomfortable.
