The Sinking Fund.
A decidedly interesting papor, bearing thc above I 7,
title, was read by its author, Hon. F. A. CONKLINO, j
before tiic Geographical and Statistical Society of
New York, in session in Clinton Hall. In the ab?
sence of the President, Mr. AncnnuLD RUSSELL,
the Vice-President, occupied the chair, and intro?
duced tho orator of thc evening to a select and
highly appreciative assemblage.
Mr.' Conkling prefaced his trc atm cut c f tho sub?
ject, bv remarks on national debts in general. He
considered it to be the duty of overy patriotic etti
2011 to compress tho burden within its narrowest
limits, and provide for its immediate removal, as
each generation had sufficient labor to meet its
own emergencies. Moreover, it being thc wish of
every property-holder to leave his heirs an unen?
cumbered c3t?to, each generation should pay the
debts by it incurred.
Having alluded to tho financial theories of the
French encyclopedists, Diderot, Condorcet and
others, tho speaker advertod to tho national debt
of tin: United States, lio scorned the assertion to
tho effect that it was a blessing, and stated that
tho people had resolved, by the next Presidential
election, tu read a lesson to those financiers who
had sought to reduce such a theory to a practice.
Having glanced at tho financial condition of tlio
.country in thc past, ho proceeded to review tho
origin and adoption of tho sinking fund system,
which had been first proposed hy Earl Stanhope
aud subgcqncnt?y carried out by Sir liobort Wal?
pole. Ho considered that the adoption of that
eyytc :i would bo the host means by which to ex
tif.",".i i: a national debt, which ho considered thc
gre .' . curso that could rest ilium u lund, ir any
example -.vere required, continued Mr. Colliding, j
the right of England, whoso rich men aro tuc | "
richest and whoso paupers arc tho poorest,
and who is gradually losing rank among nations,
would tarnish sufficient proof of tho terrible ef?
fect i of a constantly increasing national debt.
The speaker then traced the progress of tho ad
horenci to thc sinking fund system iu this coun?
try, and urged its immediate adoption. In con?
clusion, he stated that, assuming that thc sum to?
tal ni' : lie -public debi would reach the amount of
three thou- ind three hiuidrcdmillion dol?ais, the
following pr ipositious wore incontrovertible :
Thu l\ -wirec millions of dollars, annually invest?
ed and improved at tho rate of six per cent., would
extinguish tho debt lu thirty-throe and one-third
Sixty-fix millions, annually invested nndiiuprov-,
ed in the same manlier, would achieve a Uko result j
hi a little less t!ian twenty-five years. , p
Ninety-nine mUlkius, annually invusted and im?
proved as above, would be productive of similar
effects in about eighteen and three-fourth years.
Thus, then, was thc sinking system vindicated j \
by plain facts and figures.
Mr. Conkling'* remarks, to which a few lines
caun.'l d<> iostico, were listened to with marked
atto- ' ont. At the conclusion of his
z.C \- 'Ss, Hon. (J P. Daly moved that the mailtt
soripi be deposited hi thc archives of thosocictv, .

Tho work of Mr. LINCOLN,'' says M. DE CTASPAUIN

ork, no less glorious, is thc reorganization of the
ann try, and thc proclamation of thc rights br?
inging to thc frcod negroes." Mr. JOHNSON, UO
ouht. is highly delighted to h am further, thal
io wisdom and limitless of his administration,
ms far, had tho Binccro admiration of his French
ilviscr. He says that "tho authority of tho Priai?

imo that now arranges the terms of peace, Re
cllion and slavery were one nnd the same thing;
nd rebellion, then-fore, must have no hand in
i-guhiting tho destinies of slavery."
All Ihis is very clear to this French lecturer; so,
Iso, that thu very first step Congress must take,
i to declaro universal suffrage. But now arrises
serious difficulty in his mind. He says : "Qu'est-ce
tue le Congresf ("esl le peuple represent*:
What is Congress ? The representatives of
lie people. The assembly at Washington lias
0 other power, except what it holds from tho
copie. Whatever it does or ordains, is in the
ame of the people. How, therefore, eau it itn
osc on ihc South a law which is objected to even
t the North ?" Our learned French logician
lerits some little credit for this much Candor
ie more, as ho attempts no answer to this knotty
nest iou.
The political status of thc South at this moment
1 not over-pleasant to contemplate, with Messrs.
TETONS, Sura EB, WADE, WILSON, Sec., armed
ip*a.~pie with resolutions, hills and speeches, all
?niling in the same direction ; but to see meddle
>mc foreigners volunteering their advice, and
cap gratuitous insult upon our devoted head, is
little too much for our over-taxed patience. Aro
riere no grievances in England? What of tho ill?
ume tax, the poor rates, the oppressed miners of

Something Werth Know inp.
[From tlie lioslon Pott, December t.}
Thc wonderful success and abnoBt incrediblo
profitableness of tho File manufacturo in this coun?
try is known only to thc lucky holders of stock in
tho few companies which enjoy a sort of monopoly
in tho business. In fact very few people uncon?
nected \rith mechanical branches ol' industry can
possibly form any cstimato of the extent to which
!. iles arc used, and what an important item this
article forms both in thc lists of manufactures and
importations. It may he a piece of interesting in?
formation to stale that no less than from 34,000,
000 to ?.-;,000,()0i) worth of Files aro annually im?
ported into thc United Stales, and from $5,000,000
to ^,000,000 worth animally manufactured hero,
and yet this supply, as large as it may appear, docs
not exceed, ami indeed often fails to satisfy tho de?
mand. Tho want of skilled labor in this branch of
industry, holli hore and in Eurolie, is so great
that it taxes the 'Uniout energies of tue manufac?
turers to suppl; thc constantly increasing domands
pl tho trade, -nd u'-^ Z-m'-s to continually en?
hance tho cost of proti?SuOD. Ifc should bc stated
herc that ?u ordinary machine shops it requires
a iile of ic very best make and quality to last
a good workman ono single day, and but fow
liles, in fact, last so long. It may bo addod that
sonic of thc large iron works, as well as tho
government and railroad machine-shops, uso from
??0,000 to $100,000 worth of liles each per annum.
Tins will explain thc enormous consumption of
liles, and sufficiently answers tho inquirv, what
becomes of them all? Tho system of recruiting
tiles is practiced to some extent. Hut IICLC again
thc want of skilled labor is encountered, and oc?
casions the same dUUcnlty as in thc primary man?
ufacture-the same process having to ba pursued
in recruiting as in making a now file: and the high
price charged, together with tho fact that thc liles
aro lessened in weight and tho temper of tlio steel
destroyed, renders the process hy no means so
economical as it would al first appear.
While thc Whipple File Company, of Providence,
pursues tho noiseless tenor of its way, and
livides quietly among its stockholders sixty or
eighty per cent, per annum from its profits on
thc manufacturo of files, another company, in
Sew York-ibo Russell Pile Company-is doing as
neat a thing for tho fortunate who hold its shares,
by recruiting .ami romanofacturing the tons of
ivom-out and useless tiles which, otherwise, would
io thrown aside as "scrap"' steel. By a process
delusively in tho possession of tho company, part
ly patented and partly secret, old dies are renewed,
mil made in all respects equal to new, in a
scry few minutes and at comparatively trifling ex
lOnso. A.S many as eight hundred dozen liles
lavo been renovated in a singlo ?lay bv this pro
:ess, and with a force of only lifty men. This
itatomctit would seem incredible if it were not
..ouched for by trustworthy men who have wit
icssod thc operations of tlio company. Whether
his process be a profitable one or not, may easily
ic inferred from tho fact that, after only thrco or
"our months' work, tho company has paid tho neat
it Ile dividend of ten per cent, on its capital, bo?
udes retaining on hand a surplus sufficient to
ntarantco a lUvidend of twice ton per cent, in
darch, when the next quarterly dividend will bo
Ktyablc. There certainly would appear to bo
ionic virtue in old liles, if "their renovation can be
nade tn pay as well as is indicated by thc success
if tho Russell File Company. Thc results of its
oe ret process reminds one' of tho rejuvenating
nachinc which, out of such poor materials as au
ictiigcnarian, could make a vigorous young man.

Thc second amendment proposed declared that
.no part of any debt or debts contracted in aid cf
he late rebellion, or which may hereafter be con
raetcd in aid of any rchellion against thc Unitod
states, shall ever bi: assumed or paid by thc Uui
ed States, nor shall any Stato assume or pay any
iart thereof." This amendment is intended to
mike repudiation of our war debt impossible by
miking it unconstitutional lo pay anything for re?
milton, either by United States, or State appro
lriatioii. This "being done, no party, North or
tenth, can ever open thc question for thc ratifica?
tion of such an amendment. It is an implied dc?
.Inration that both tho States and tho nation hold
di their resources exclusively to pay the debt nf
the Union contracted in its defence.
Its ratification will lie an express and solemn
condemnation, hy nil thc people of all thc States,
if treason and "secession. The third and last
amendaient declares that thc Congress shall have
power to make all laws necessary und proper to
iccnro to all persons, without distinction, in every

d' life, liberty and property. This is intended ta
. ?eure equal personal, not political, rights to all
i.ersojis, without distinction, in every State which
is a part of the Republic. It is a healing measure,
inda measure of security for the future against
lite calamities and crimes of the past.
