I am glad to know that tbe Dem ocrats believe in tbe sinking fund. and tbat tbey intend .0 help support u. I congratulate them npon this I remember wbeu tbe sinking fund was established under the Whig ad ministration of Governor William F. Juhuson, wbicb upon its accession to ,Kjwer, unshrinkingly addressed it self to tbe devising of a plan for the maintenance of tbe credit of tbe Com monwealth' and which boldly evieJ new taxes for tbat purpose. This was done amid the opposition and the derision of tbe Democratic lead, ers of tie day, who, faithless them selves to their duty, were jealous of the effort ot ethers to perform it Through the operation of the Sink ing Fund, and by wise management of the Sute finances, tbe public debt has been reduced from forty odd millions of dollars, which tbe Bigler Ilubes dynasty bequeathed to ns in I960, to tbe nominal sum of twenty- three millions of dollars, and to tbe actual sum of fifteen millions of dol lars net in 1 3 To-ail within a period of twenty years. During ad this time the great measures which built up tbe Sinking Fund were enacted with out tbe votes of the Democracy ; and in this I include the first great ef fort of this people to rid themselves of a paralyzing incubas by tbe sale of the main line of the public works It is pleasant to know that if tbe Democracy never helped ns to pui anything into the Sinking Fund tbey now propose to help us to keep any thing from getting out Let me add, f r tbe benefit of those wbo wish to know the Legislative record of their candidate, that when the bill wa. passed wiping out tbe tax cn real es tate and transferring to corporation? tbe burdens thereby taken from the people, Mr. Pershing, though a mem ber of the Legislature, failed to re cord his vote upon that bill, as if thereby to show his fidelity to tbe corporations tather than to tbe peo ple, of which he is said to have given many proofs, besides the two I bave named elsewhere NATIONAL ISSUES LEGAL-TENDER NOTES AND THE CONTRACTION TIIEME. The burden of the complaints in the Democratic platform bowever, is uf national politics, and at aa elec tion, too. when only State officers are to be chosen. It charges .contrac tion of tbe currency as tbe cause of tbe panic and of tbe present depres sion in business, and holds tbe Re publican party responsible for these results. Let us see by tbe record what the contraction has been, and wbo made it In 1362 tbe tbe Gov ernment of tbe United States com menced the i&sue cflegaj tender notes. TLe first issue was of one hundred and fiftr millions of dollars (150,000, 00a This was in February, 1 SSi Four months thereafter Congress authorized one hundred and fifty millions ($150,000,000) mare. Eight months thereafter il authorized one hundred and fifty millions (150,000,- 000) more, making four hundred and any millions (4o0,W.0.JUa ) in all, of which fifty millions (50,000,000) were to be ued as temporarily required for temporary loans. Tbe issue was proposed, advocated, and defended solely a3 a "war measure" ia both bouses of Congress, and was justified by it friends by tbe overwhelming necessity then upon tbe oouatry, wbicb is tbe ground upas wbicb the Sopreme Court of tbe United States, in their ia.t decision, sustained their use aa a legal tender in payment of all private debts. To quiet anxiety as to tbe extent of this issue, wbicb bad already trebled the amount fixed for it in tbe beginning, and to aid in placing tbe large volume of bonds created. Congress, during the war, on tbe 30th day of Jane, 1374, de clared, ia tbe act for the issue of four hundred millions (400,000,000) of six per cent bonds and of fifty milli- ns (50,000,000) of traction al currency, that "the total amount of the United States notes issued shAll aever ex ceed four hundred millions of dollars. and acb additional som sot exceed ing fifty millions (50,000,000) of dol lars aa may be temporarily required for tbe redemption of tbe temporary 1 loans " This pledge remains wire pealed and inviolate.

Ibis bill which was a meas ure of inflation, and on that ground was vetoed by the President, did not reeeive the support of a single Penn sylvania Democrat, so that if tbe country to-day be suffering from tbe effects of a contracted cnrrercT there is as much responsibility for tbat re sult opon the Democracy of Pcnnsyl vania as upon anT other portion of tr-e country, through their Represen tatives, and their attempts to shirk it and fix it upon others partake of the nature of a disreputable trick.

In 1362, while this legal tender question was pend ing, tbe House bill made these notes receivable ia payment of all taxes, duties, impoits, excises, debts, and demands of every kind due to tb United States, and for salaries, debts and demands owing by tbe United States to individuals, corporations, and associations within tbe United States, and shall also be lawful mon ey and a legal tender in payments ot all debts, public and private, with in the United States," ia which form it passed yeas 93, nays 55 receiv ing the support of but five members in good standing in tbe Democratic party, and encountering tLe opposi tion of such Democrats as Messrs.

It would require tbe with drawal acd sale of the five hundred tuitions (500,000.000) of Govern ment bonds, held by tbe Government as security fjr tbe circulation, to make them, if the market be depress ed thereby, a cheap prey for foreign capital, thus increasing by thirty millions (30,00,0u0) of gold annual ly oit indebtedness to Europe; or if a-jt fully tbat, to stagger our own market to tte great depression of all tLe other securities upon it. It can not be pretended that tbe change could give us a safer currency than we have, for wbat security can be better than tbat now required for bank circulation ? Its sole purple appears to be to tear up as if in anger and revenge, the system now existing, made necessary by tbe war and regulated by tbe nation, and to substitute Lr it the ante-bellum sys tem tf State banks, under their ex clusive regulation, to be more or less -ecure as State legislators may de r nine ; to become, possibiy again a iruitful source of corruption ia State capital:) ; to magnify there J State autboritv and increase State power; o become a barrier in the path of tte Government, as the old State -ystem was at tbe beginning of the war; to defy its power, to refuse it ne!p. and to sneer at its appeals. For tie, having learned something by the war and by the struggle the Gov ernment bad in tbe dark dava f l51-C2, 1 stall never consent tbat tbe Union shall lose tbe grip it now has upon the money power, bat shall insist that, tor the public safety, it continue to preserve it, to control it, to tax it, and to make it a sv rvant to tbe people. With free banking es tablished as tbe law, there is no room for interference by tfce Government with tie volume of the currency, and ttertfiire with value. Therefore is it clear that tbe philosophy of this Democratic scheme is tbe same which animated that party and its meas ures before, during, and tince the war to this boar in all thingj tbe idea cf tbe provincial, the reparatist, tae unnatioual, as distinguished front that inspiration wbkb maks cf this people oue nation; which binds to that nation all its parts, with ail its parts, with ail their func ions, and wtich. while recognizing tbe rights of the States it invades no part of ineir proper jurisdiction, yet demands tor tbe equai good of all and for tbe safety of all, and for the integrity and tte polity of the system itself, teat it shall bave but one bead, and that tbe Union, instead of being dis cordantly controlled by tbe various States. This arrogant demand of desperate, political gamesters has its origin ia tte jealousy and hatred of everything national, which ditin gu tabes tbe Democratic party No tb and Soutb, and wbicb abowa itself on every band in ili-concealed efforts to drag tbe nation tack into tbe ruts in which it moved before tbe war. when its feebleness called forth mock ery from its foe, and when itanaked- strue oetweeu my .v. political profit, and recklessly to toy n loe r --- mis-'ortane produces, and which, when aroused to desperation by tte long .ura.ua; ' If you want a good family paper, subscribe for the Herald,
