KSTABLISHED AUGUST 24, 1852. U1 n k't,'i i iuj ' w l'uih .
The Sail Heeling To-day.
The Nail Association ha.< another
meeting to day at Pittsburgh, at which
the qaeation of drawing out or leaving in
the preienflorfeiture" or penalty fund?
a large amount in the aggregate?will be
discussed ami probably decided. An in
generally known, the present bond of co-|
hesion among the Nail men in, a* the'
great Calhoun once said about the Dem?
I ocracy, their public plunder. Each mill '
' belonging to the association has its pile
in the pool?most of thein several thousand
dollar* each?and each one h&i
therefore more interest than in former
times as to its fooling with the organ-1
The present bond of cohesion wan entered
into in April 187G, at which time
Nails were put up to $2 75. Tho arrangement
worked well for ieferal
month*, and all the mill* mule some
money. But the Kastern men who havo
no such bond, and who, by reason of
cheaper iron and cheaper labor, were
m iking nails full as cheap, if not cheaper,
than Pittsburgh and Wheeling, came west
of the mountain* with their surplus product
and undersold the market, and thus
inserted the entering wedgo of considerable
demoralisation. Notwithstanding
therefore the tightness with which the
Western N.iil Association was bound, it
wai speedily affected by this Eastern in*
v.nimi. an<l things natnrallr bemn to
w jrk loosely and unsatisfactorily, the re-1
null of which was that the price was put (
down 25 cent* per keg, a decline that!
played hari-kari with the project* uf !
the btniness,even though it did ri?t the'
mirket of the Eastern invaders.
The present statin of the market is
very unsatisfactory to the manufacturers.
Tnere is nothing now in the busine**
worth speaking about, and the latest
views of buyers preclude the idea of
profit altogether. Under such circumstances
it is no wonder that the mills
ulk about drawing out their money?
tcept perhaps a nomintl nest egg each
?Andstoppingoff*their production fur the
next sixty days, nay during July and
Augnst. There is nothing new in such a
stop, as it is an old exj>edi?nt in dull
times for relieving the market, by allowing
time for consumption to overtake production.
There are, however, some persons
who are opposed to it, believing that
it id better that the Nail trade should adjust
itself an speedily as possible to whatever
may he the tendencies of the times a*
regards general business. By the way, it
h very difficult just now to tell
exactly what are the tendencies of the
times as regards general business. Some
people think that we are scraping the
bottom (hard) of hard-pan prices, and
that the midsummer of 1S77 will hereafter
lw known as the nadir of the great
depression in prices that followed the
panicof 1873. Mr. Thaw,of Pittsburgh,
of the Pennsylvania Company, said to
Hon. C. D. Hubbard, lately, that 1877 is
the year in which to build railroadsmeaning
that labor and material have
touched bottom, and that those who do
not avail themselves of these bottom
prices will build hereafter at greater
expense. This view does not look improbable,
and yet it is one that, as in the
case of Engineer Becker, was held two
years ago. It has seemed as ,if each
year since the panic has proved itself a
false bottom in prices, and as if hard pan
had yet to be reached. 1 he labor market
in so important a factor in determining
the coat of production, and it ha* been no
overcrowded up to this time that
the rtUrinkage in value* of all kind* baa
been irresistible. We are informed that
common labor is is now being engaged
un the Tuscarawas road at SO and 90 cents
per day. Tliw certainly looks as if hard
pan had been reached in railroad labor,
and therefore we are inclined to regard
Mr. Thaw's view a* altogether probable.
The future of the nail market depend*
no much on the cost of iron that it id almost
useless to speculate on the outlook.
In regard to iron tho labor question comes
in with in overshadowing influence.
OooJ iron is now sold at $19
at l'ittsburgh. Will it go lower?
their beat, and successfully up lo this
time, to hold up the price. The/ are adkI
inft' and receiving last year's prices (or ore,
and tbi.?, too, despite lower prices for labor
at the mine*, and the great abundance
of cheap lake transportation. Aud
yet despite the firmness of ore, and the
cheapness of coke, iron is liable to go
lower, on account of the uncertainties
of the labor market. Until the field ol
employment widens out again, the
question of wages will operate as a consuming
rust on values of all kind*. It
case the Nail manufacturers stop produc
tiou for sixty days the suspension wil
tell on the iron market, that the effec
produced there will, in its turn, be fel
on the labor now employed in producinj
iron. East of the mountains, coal, wkid
I more than with us, is an important ele
ment of cqst in production, is steadil;
declining in price, and never sold so lov
as now. Labor is also lower then
than here, and capital also is cheape
and more abundant. Consequently irot
is cheaner. and nail*
till finding their way, here And there
west'of the mountains.
No wonder the Nail manufacturer
who will meet at Pittsburgh to-day art
in a quandary what to do?whether t<
xtop production and endeavor to nurst
the market, accordiug to the old prac
tkv, or adopt the Darwinian theorj
o I the survival of the fittest
It used to be conceded that then
were poinu in the country that couli
manufacture first-class nails cheaper thai
certain other pointd. Thii idea still ob
taint*, although of late the question o
cheap freights has tended mon
thin heretofore to equalize thesi
Advantage*. It id arid that one or tw(
Wen tern mills have reworted to the use o
old rails a* a means of cheapening the
production of nails. They thus cut ofTtht
expense of puddling their iron, and
greatly cheapen its coat. As to the ul<
timate value of this method, that is an
| other question. Wheeling never gained J
her reputation for superior nails by Af
tiling inferior material. What, however,
iiiaj be developed out of the present mi
competition retutina to be seen. The in- lai
Ulligent gentlemen who meet in conven- Ml
tion to-day at Pittsburgh will, pcrchance,
be able to throw aome '.light on that que*- ^
tion, as well as on all the other perplex!- sto
ties that now embarrass the nail buainea*. !*'
We shall therefore look with interest to jjJ
their action. oft

? point. The lubject of the these* alt **
ejit. The only fault found with the "<
!im?m *m that it might l>e misunder- ri
od, ami be wrongly applied. It cer- o
nly cannot lie said that the inner man
inder the law or that he needs anyng
to imnel him in the performance
that which u good. At angels are un
the law, and do the will of God not M
:au?e they are commanded, bot their
7 nature in so conalitated that they ei
inot do otherwise, the aame can be j,

h is the work of the devil; both are

law of the Lord.
7he third point?that Christ has made m
free from the ceremonial law?was Hfl
n taken up. There was but little a,
iculty found in accepting thin po* rj
on. The unanimous teaching of ^
St nod is undoubtedly this: All the ?c
linance* of the old disjiensation which b,
re intended only for the Jewish peo- q
who have nothing to do with the ^
ristian Col. 2,10 and 17, "Let no man
refore judge you in meat, or in drink, m
in respect of any holy day, or of the a|
r moon, or of the Sabbath days, which ei
i a shadow of things to come; but the
ly is of Christ." That is the Chris- ^
n is free in all the?e thing. No one ni
e forbid us to act any particular thing
to drink any particular drink. Neither
-e any one make a binding law respcct
g holy daya. The Sabbath waa a
niuw ui uung* 10 come, me uouy hoi f

ected Sunday an a day on which t<> '

therans who claim that Sunday .c

ever. Extract* were here read from ei

the Church; besides this there is no ec- (<

Everybody known that after the recent
j election the men who were elected by the
,B people President and Vice President of
0 the United States were counted out, and
. me men wno were not elected were count,
ed in And Heated. I disclaim any thought
1 of personal wrong in noting thin transact
tion. Not by any act or word of mine
0 shall that be dwarfed or degraded into
,j a personal grievance, which is the greatest
r wrong that has stained our national annalrt
to every man of the four ami a
( quarter millions who were defrauded of
j. the fruits of their elective franchise. It
l# is as great a wrong as it is to mo, and no
r lean to every man of the minority will
jj the ultimate consequences extend. Evils
in government grow by success and by
impunity. They do not arrest their own
progress. They can never l*? limited ex1
cept by external force. If the men in
f possession of the Government can
a in one instance maintain themselves
> in power against an adverse decision at
elections, such an example will be imi
tated; dissatisfaction exists always. De
* viceH 10 give coior 01 law, ana laiso preo
tenses on which to found fraudulent de!*
cisions will not l>e wanting. The wrong
" will grow into a practice if once condon*
ed in the world's history. Changes in
j succession of government* have usualJ
ly l>een the result of fraud
' or force. It has been our faith
and our pride that we had established
* the mode of peaceful change, to be
f worked out by the agency of the ballot
* bo*. The question now is whether our
> elective system, in its substance a* well
* as its form, is to be maintained by this
3 question of questions until it is iinally
* settled. There can bo no politics founded
* on the inferior questions of the Ad?
minstrative policy; it involves
' fundamental right of the people;
it _ involves the elective principle;
3 it involves the whole system of popular
3 government. The people must signally
* condemn the great wrong which has been
* done to them. They must strip the ex'
ample of everything that can attract imi6
tators. They must refuse a prosperous
immunity to this crime. This is not all.
* The people will not be able to trust the
| authors or heneticiaries of this wrong to
' devise the remedies, but when those
B who condemn the wrong shall
B have tbo power, they must devise
me&jinreri which shall render a rptwtitinii
* of the wrong impossible. If my voice
' could reach throughout our country, and
' be hoard in its remotest hamlet, I would
' nav l?e of good cheer, the Republic will
' live, the institution* of our country are
' not to expire in shame, the sovereignty
c of the people shall be rescued from thin
* peril and rc?etitablished. A tiuccessful
1 wrong never appears so triumphant as on
1 the very eve o141 til fall. Seven years ago a
* corrupt dynasty culminated in its power
0 over the million of people who live in
' the city of New York. It had conquered
? or bribed, or flattened, and won almost
1 everybody into acquiescence. It appeared]
* to be invincible. A year or two later its!
? members were in the penitentiaries or
' in exile. History abounds in similar
* examples. We must believe in the right
and in the future. A great and noble
r nation will not sever its political from
* its moral life.JJ
* Atjthe conclusion of tho Governor's!
1 address Gov. Hendricks being loudly
f called for rose and said:
gov. hendricks' 8pkkoii.
Gentlemen:?i thank you for the
'' honor you have shown me. I apprecia
ate itjiu part aa an expression of personal
I respect and confidence, but more as a
, declaration and assurance of your sup*
I port of the principles and policies of
" which in honorable association with
vour distinguished citizen I wiw
made a representative in the nolitiI
cal contest of laat year. I beg
J to assure you I appreciate the honor
I you show me the more highly because of
your devotion to the political principles
which experience has shown to be esseutial
to the preservation of good and pure
government and the property of the
~ people. Very earnestly the Democrat*
of thin great city and State and of Indiana,
as well aa other States contended
for and demanded a restoration of local
] sell government in all the States where
it had been denied. They insisted on a
reduction throughout the entire public
service of the expenditures, not by hundreds
nor by thousands, but by many millions
annually. Therein was involved
also a great reduction of the vast army of
office holders and the substitution ot an
honest for dishonest administration. Con.
tending for the results so notably right
/ and honorable, their cause was gra'nd and
'' their victory glorious. I will not disJ
turb the pleasure of this occasion by undertaking
to recount^the means whereby
the will and judgment oEthe Deonle were
defeated. The result as declared in Louisiana
and in Florida and at Washington
is not and cannot be made satisfactory t<?
1 the country, for the obvious reasons that
it wan not true. A great and sincere peo'*
pie will rest their tinal judgment only
'* upon truth and never on frand. Successe
ful through technicality, even should the
President and hi* Cabinet adopt a part
? or the whole of the policies and pur*
poses for which the Democratic party
' han been contending for thei?e many
yearn, and which became so distinctly de?
* fended the Iwtyear, even that cannot re'?
move or quiet public discontent. The
r. Democrat* will make no factious opposil~
tion, nor will they seek to embarra-s the
rt defacto administration, but will sustain it
in what is right because it is right, and
for the welfare of the country, and not at
all because of any fidelity to the party
7 that stands defeated and condemned by the
h people. The people cannot allow the ce?
lectton of a Chief Magistrate to become
a thing of chance or of sharp practice.
'? The fraud first triumphant in American
history must be assigned to its proper
? place among the crimes against popular
f government, and made so odious that no
1< iiartv will ilaro tn nttcni'it it* renetitinn.
J lie who u elected President muni be in*
' augurated. Until that id settled and the
" land made secure, no Democrat can be ?c*
^ duced from his devotion in any
't way; not by allurement* of officejor even

II the Administration of vicious principles
and dangeroui policies, and the adoption
of better doctrine* aud ju*t meaaure*.

Some may think that we should have an

New Yorker and an Indianan should understand
it better, and our legislative and
administrative policy should be as
broad and comprehensive as the industries,
trade and commerce, which it may
affect. Does the trade of the great cities
of the Atlantic stop with the mountains?
Does it not reach beyond the Mississippi
and across the Missouri? Every new

border, every new farm that is made far
out, even within theBhadowof the Kocky

cotton that is produced in Louisiana and
