FOR SHERIFF, JACOB RICHARDSON, FOR CORONER. LAWRENCE PENDEGRASS. Greenback. »», Repudiation. The Radicals pretend to say that tho payment, of the bondholders in greenbacks which is the "lawful money of the United is repudiation. Do they expect to make the people believe their absurd and foolish representations on this subject? Do they imagine that the publio intelli gence has sunk so low ns not to detect their fallacies and misrepresentations ? If they do they deceive themselves, and will discover their error, by-and-by. ponses of the war, for which these bonds were issued, wore defrayed in greenbacks. Congressmen, heads of departments, the mechanics in the navy yards, the sailors, tin snl tiers, and all other government ployees, are paid in greenbacks, the law ful money of the country. The platform adopted by the National Democratic Con vention at Now York, says :—" Where tho Government has pledged itself to pay in coin, payment should be made in coin;" in all other States, The ex enl cases " payment should be made in lawful money of the U. States," that is, that bondholders should stand » common footing with all other ment creditors. on govern To all impartial minds nothing could he fairer than this. What right have these favored bondholders to privileges not enjoyed by their fellow-men? The Radicals may continue to cry out "repudiation" till they are hoarse, but they will not be able to make the people zee it. in that light, eroment debt in the lawful money of the United States, is not repudiation. That pure and immaculate statesman, philosopher aud moralist, Horace Greely, •alia it "swindling." Others, equally nice in their fine-drawn sense of moral ob ligation, pronounce it "robbery, us zee if there he not something akin to robborry, after'all, connected with these bonds. Government submitted to a shave of sixty cents in the dollar ; somo of tho bonds, it is known, wero sold as low os thirty-three ; but let us eupposc that forty cents in tho dollar were realized, the bond holder making a profit of sixty cents. He pays no tax, hut receives principal and interest in gold, at a premium of 40 per cent, thus receiving over two dollars for om. Is this not robbery ? But who the robbers ?—the men who would the bonds in greenbacks, dollar for dollar*; or those who have fleeced the government, and arc nuw receiving two dollars for one? When it is remembered, too, that it has been computed that one-half or two-thirds of our public debt was for fraudulent tracts aud for picking and stealing gene rally, throughout the war, robbery is not an inappropriate term to be used in such connection ; and it is a wonder that outraged and indignant people have sponged out the debt as the French did their assignats. That they have not done is owing to the fact that our country peo^Je, tho provo cation, we take it, being about as great i the ono ease as in the other. That the bondholders can claim Payment of the gov Let are pay oon an so, men are a more moral in any very great consideration on the score of patriotism in furnishing the with money, will not be admitted, patriotism was of the government Their cent per cent, order, and is- in strong contrast to tho the illustrious patriot of the Revolution, Robert Morris, who loaned his course of money to tho government, not at a discount of sixty per cent, but at par, and refused legal in terest. The money-loaning patriots of the present dsy cannot palm off their spurious patriotism upon intelligent men, for the genuine article. The policy of paying tho publio debt in greenbacks, w ill have a tendency to ap preciate ihe currency and bring it up - <he gold standard, and is the posite of repudiation, and will be derstood by all intelligent and unpreju diced people. near very op j so uu Congre,:: has voted to take a recess from Monday next to the 21st of Scpt'r. when unless otherwise ordered, an adjournment will take place till the first Monday in De cember. The bugbear of presidential in terference with their revolutionary schemes U Hade the pretext for a recess instoad of ta adjournment. A motion was subse quently rnsde to reconsidi r, and they may deslare their session perpetual, like the French convention. The Democrats held a ratification meet ing at Georgetown, Del. on Tuesday, which was addressed by Hon. IViHard Baal» bury and Mr. Causey Tue Fourteenth Amendment. — The Secretary of State, Mr. Seward, 1ms wade prnclîunatîbn tu regard ta the adoption of the joint resolution of Congress proposing what is denominated the ourtcenth amend ment to the Constitution® Under the law of 1818, when three-fou have ratified any amend the duty of the Sccretar After enumerating twent eluding Ohio and Now Jersey, which un dertook to recall their ihs of the States lent, it is made ■ to so announce, '-throe States (in t) as having adopted the amendment, he cites alao the fact that from docume State Department it apj ratified by "newly constituted and newly established bodies, avowing themselves, respectfully, to bo and acu on file in the s to have been as the Legis latures of Arkansas, Florida, North Caro lina, Louisiana, South Carolina and Ala bama." These make 29 in all, the requi two-thirds—the whole number being 37. Mr. Seward therefore certifies that if the first resolutions of tli site e Legislatures of Ohio and New Jersey uri to he deemed remaining in full force and effect, (admit ted to bo a matter of douljt,) notwithstand ing the subsequent action of withhrawal, then the amendment has| been ratified in tho maunor hereinbefore mentioned, and so has become valid. as President Johnson sent to Congress, on baturday last, a draft of) several amend ments to the Constitution acoompanicd by a message setting forth Itho grounds which he recommends tl em. He would have the President and Vice-President of tho United States chosen by a popular vote without the cumbrous and useless machin ery of Presidential Electors ; hold their offices for six years ; and be ineligible for a socond term. He wouldj have the United States Senators likewise chosen by the peo ple instead of the States Legislatures. When the offices of President and Vice President both fall vacant, ho would have tho Secretary of State, or some other of the heads of departments, act as Presi dent until a new election to fill the vacan cy. And finally, he would shorten the terms of the Justices of the Supreme Court to twelve years, and have one-third of them elected every fourth year; The President has issued a proclamation announcing the ratification of the four teenth amendment by the. Legislatures of South Carolina and Louisiana. This a mendment will cause a loss of one and probably two members of the House from Maryland, and three from Kentucky. As to Delaware, having but one vote, she can lose nothing. Whether this amendment will be held valid when reason and justice are once morp restored to | tho councils of the nation may well be questioned. It can hardly be supposed thift it will then be îegarded as a settled max eminent that Congress has the power to compel the Legislatures of the States to adopt amendments to the Constitution which are known to be Contrary to the will of a majority of the people. on of this gov Circulars have been sent all over the country by the Republican National and Congressional Committees,! to Post Mas ters, and Revenue and Custom House of certain per cent upon their salaries, to raise money for election assure fieials, levying eermg purposes.

He was standing out side of an old-fashioned, car having a side opening, as the train passed a small house very near the track, just this side of the canal bridgo, when he was caught between the house and the car, and turned round several times between them, until ho fell upon the ground.

Those farmers who have threshed their wheat, say that it dors not yield in proportion to the straw. Tho oats crop is very light ; and tho failure of boath wheat and oats is attributed to the excessive hot weather. Oats have suffered more than the wheat, beennse, the crop maturing later, it was exposed for a longer period to the wither ing, scorching heat, which has prevailed ever since the 1st of July.

Thé Delaware Journal awl Statesman says General Grant, after a tour through the South, during which he minglod freely with the people and conversed frankly With the leaders of that region, in a letter to the President , dated Washington, De cember 18th, 1866, said: "I am fully satisfied that the mass of thinking men of yhc .South accepts the present situation of affairs in good faith. I was pleased to learn from the lcadihg men whom I met, that they not only accepted the decision ns fluid, but now that the sutoke of battle has cleared away and time has boon given for reflection, that this decision has been a fortunate one for the whole country.''
