■ —r- - CHEAP MONEY AND HOW TO OB TAIN IT. THE WAY TO FORCE THE BALANCE OF TRADE IN FAVOR OF THE UNITED STATES—SHIP BUILDING, ETC. Extract from n Letter of Hornce 11. Out. I-'irnt liii-I r.'.'.lilviit of the Nnlloiinl Lnbor lm to Hon. I'ornnndo Wood. Dec-ember 7, 1572. The great want of this country to-day is cheap money, a low rato of interest to those obliged to borrow for all tho devel oping industries of tho land. You know England pays on her consols three per cent, interest, and has thirty-seven hun dred millions in these consols, held almost exclusively by her citizens at home, af fording a circulating medium, being read ily convertible into maney and also into consols, thus affording almost an unlimited circulation, supplying every want of the people for money at very low rates ; while ' this nation has only such quantity of cir- i culating medium left to it as will keep the rate ot interest, which the present very , limited developing interests of the country t must pay, at from twelve to one hundred ' per cent. To enable us to produce fabrics - to compete with other nations and find a foreign maiket, we require such an abun dance of money, accessible to the people, | as will bring the rate of interest nearly as cheap as in Great Britain. We contend that the government has no right to deny her industrial citizens the use of money at as cheap rates, as do the governments of those countries who compete with us in . the markets of the world. To-day no civilized nation bases its cir culation upon gold alone, and tho old Ben ton Bullion age is past beyond return. We should have, to make us equal to (ireat Britain in financial advantage, at least $4,000,000,000 of United States bonds drawing only thico por cent., with the : ability to convert them at will into smaller non-interest bearing greenbacks— not bank '. notes. Under this system we might easily * open our ports to free trade with all the world, and this cheap and abundant money would stimulate production and then And in foreign markets an outlet for our sur plus productions, asdo England, Germany, " France, and all our intelligent competing nations. Nations are competitors as well as individuals, and if one nation has a sys tem of production twenty per cent, cheap, r than another, then she can supply the : world. Our tariff laws can reach no • further than the territory of our own na tion. Here then is just our difficulty. The rate of interest which the legal cur- c rency of a nation bears determines the value in that nation of everything meas ured by that money—bonds are in fact a 0 currency. To illustrate: Before our late war a house and lot was saleable at say, $G,500, which to-day sells for $14,000, and could be originally mortgaged for two-thirds its value. To-day tho same house will not accepted by a money-lender as security . for much over §G,OOO. What is the cause " ol this change? THE MONEY LENDER before the war, was glad to take 0 per cent, and even then had to pay 1J state tax on his bond and mortgage and the idle money thus secured and invested to him netted only 4J per cent. To-day under the operation of our existing system his * money invested in United States bonds at r C per cent, and free from taxation, gives in s effect 9 per cent., or double that which J he could receive under our old system, i besides bonds are in effect ready money » convertible in an hour, while a mortgage * might tako six months to foreclose, hence v the advantage is not alo.ia in the double « rate. s Tho average annual increase of the na tion's wealth has never reached 3". per 1 cent. No nation on earth ever increased c its wealth as much as 4 per cent. Tho - casi of the horse illustrates tho whole. The rate of interest determines tho value, and government determines the rate of in terest. It is this fatal financial system, born of ( war, which deprives the people to-day of their necessary tools (money) to work with, and the whole country of its right- ' ful inheritence of prosperity. It is claimed that three to four hundred millions of the national debt has been paid since the war, under Grant. We claim this is in one sense a great £ mistake, for at the close of the war, wo \ did not owe abroad five hundred million J dollars, whereas their claims of every kind against us tc-day exceeds $2,500,000,000. ' This is getting out of debt with a ven geance ; pay off three or four hundred millions at one end and add five times as much at the other end. And yet great as this ♦ncreasing debt is . there would be nothing alarming in its aggregate if there was any hope of a change of policy,to give promise of arresting t the evil. There is ( ONLY ONE WAY OUT OF THIS, \ that is, in cheap money, plentiful, to st-ns- J ulate production, and over production, and j forcing us to sell abroad our surplus, and at as cheap rate as our competitors, and ' thus turn tho balance of trade in our favor, j and stop this increase of debt. Here is both ' tho work, the mission, and the duty of the honest Democracy. There is no other way to save our country and restore a republic, now destroyed and swallowed up in the merciless embrace of a money oligarchy. The financial platform of the labor reformers will accomplish just this result. It is also a practical balance wheel, which in its very nature prevents fluctua tion in values, for no matter how much the country called for, it could uso no more : than to keep the rate of interest to 3 per j cent, or 3 G5-100. If the Government wanted specie, buy it as it would timber to build a ship, until the balance of trade brought it back. It is and urns',, in the nature of things, be a fatal policy which operates to send all of gold, or any other commodity, out of a country. Let us, therefore, stimulate production and send products abroad to pay for what wo want to import. How Often Should Cows be Milked t The following from tho Irish Farmers' Gazette is worthy of consideration : ] Regularity in the milking of cows is of as much importance as regularity in feed ing them. In a state of nature, the cow is relieved of its milk a great many times each day. A calf allowed to remain with its mother will help itself seven or eight times a day. Under such circumstan ces, the udder of the cow will remain small, and if allowed to retain the milk secreted during twelve hours, feverish symptoms are likely to be produced. The practice of milking cows more than twice in Ihe twenty-four hours causes the capacity of the udder to be in creased, and probably helps in maintaining the lacteal secretion long after pregnancy has taken place. When, however, by an artificial system, the cow has been enabled to retain her milk without inconvenience for twelve hours or so, she ought to be milked regularly every day at the same hour. When the time for milking arrives, the udder usually becomes distended to its utmost capacity, and if it be not speedily removed tha animal suffers considera ble pain. Cases of fever, the result of allowing animals to remain too long unmilked, are, indeed, by no means of unfrequent occurrence. It I is especially necessary to attend to this i point for some days after tho animal has : Drought forth its young, for during that I period very little irritation of the lacteal ! organs is likely to bring on that most latal ol maladies, puerperal fever. If milking ! 1 be too long delayed, nature will try to help the poor animal. An absorption of , milk into the blood will to some extent take place, and that remains in the udder will become deteriorated. When neglect to milk a cow at the regular time is i repeated several times, tho secretion of tl t * fluid is permanently checked, and iheie aro many cases where by such neglect an animal has become dry in less than a month.

Each bit must be (ruaran-eed by two respon sible* persons. The bid and guarantee should be signed plainly with the full name of each per son. Tho Postmaster General ref-orves the right to reject any bid which may be deemed exrava gint; andal-o to disregard tho bids of tail ng contractors and bidders. (Act ef June 8.1872, section 249.) '6 The bid shou-d be sealed, superscribed ''Mail Proposals, Stafe of ————," addressed 'Seco' d Assistant Postmaster slw.tr'l, Cm tract Ofllce," and sent by mail, not by or to an agent. Bids of $5,000 per annum and upward must bo accompanied by a cer tified check or d.aft on i-ome solvent national bank, equal to fi per *ent. of the amount. (See law of Congress of Junfi 8, lift.) 17 The cant- acts are to he executed and returned to the Department by or before 'he \st day of June, 1873 otherwise the accepted bidder wilt, be consid ered as having failed, andtht.

A modification of a bid in any of its essen tial terms Is tantamount to a new bid, and can not be received, so as to interfere with regular competition. Makinst; anew bid, with guarantee and certificate, is the only way to modify a pre vious bid. 2'>. Postmasters are to be careful not to certify to tho sufficiency of guarantors without knowing that they are pe.sons of sufficient responsibility. (See section 247, act of June B,lS7__) They must notsign the certificate until the sura of the bid Is inserted* and the bid and guarantee are signed by the bidder and (two) guarantors ; a disregard of this instruction by postmasters willsitbj£<£them to immediate removal, and to severe penalties* Postmasters are also liable to dismissal from office for acting as agents of contractors or bid ders, with or without compensation, in any busi ness, matter, or thing, relating to the mail ser vice. They are the trusted agents of the Depart ment, and cannot consistently act In both capa cities 21. All bidders, guarantors, and sureties are : distinctly notified that on a failure to enter into or perform the contracts for the service proposed tor in the accepted bids, their legal liabilities will be enforced against them. 22 Pre-ent contractors, and persons known at the Department, must, eqmilly with others, procure gurantors and certificates of their suffi ciency frubstamlallv in the forms above pre scribed.
