the N. Y. Tribune. Hon. S. S. Cox. Manton
Marble, August Belmont. Jav Cooke, and
others, are in favor of the payment to the
lasc cent, or tne war Debt ot the United
States, contracted In depreciated paper
worth but forty cents on the dollar.
Some "Statesmen" are in favor of pay-

,toj advocates its, payment. That , plan

snort time, so would we. Assuredly

in : the payment, to the last cent, of the

The Democratic State Convention that
assembled in this city on the 8th ol Janu
ary last, was one of. the largest and one of
the ablest that ever assembled in the eUy.
Neither the editor of the If ew York World
nor the editor of the Nu York Tribune
were in that Convention. Hon. S. SL Cox,
Mamtoh Marble, August Belmont and
J at Cooke did not participate In that Con
ventioa. The platform, when read, as read
resolution by resolution, was applauded
with tumultuous and emphatic applause.
It was in fact the unanimous expression ol
the Convention, and we think- that the entire-
Dfmoeratic press ef the State was
cnrdlal and hearty In the approval of that
Platform; w On the subject of the payment
of the Public Debt, this is what the Plat
form declares: ' j ;! ; :
Resolved, That notwtihstdhdino the enor
mous ana conceded jrauas in (Ae creation of
the puoue aeow XM laun or tne country is
pledged to us payment, principle and interest.
according to tne terms or tne several acts of
Congress, Under vsnicn tne bonds revresenlins
tne debt were issued, but not otherwise, and
we are opposed to any plan for extending
the times of payment, thus increasing tbe
amount of gold interest to more than tbe
principal, or to any declaration by Congress
to at tne principal is payable in gold, which
would virtually add more than a thousand
millions to -the burthen of the debt, and to
tbe woole insane financial policy of which
these measures are a part. -
Mesotved, mat, .neitner forgetting nor
deny mg our ancient faith that eold ami
silver coin form the currency of the Con
stitution, we declare that the live-twenty
bonds should be paid In tbe same currency
received by the Government for their is-
sne, and that by the withdrawal ot the
monopoly granted to the National Banks
this result can be accomplished without an
undue or dangerous rnereaee of paper
money, now tbe only circulating medium,
thus relieving our neonle from the burthen
of a debt, the tendency of which is always
corrupt ana enslave, ana our uov-
ernment from the-' reproach of paying a
isvorea ciass in goia, wnne aiscbargrng its
debts to all others., including' Denslons to
widows and soldiers, in an -interior cur
rency.- . ' .-
- JSesolved, Tbat this plan violates ho- law,
impairs no contract, breaks no Jaitb, and
instead of retarding a return i to specie
payment,' is the shortest because tbe only
safe way of reaching that end. ;
.These views, at tbe time the unanimous
expression of the Democracy of Ohio as
represented by delegates in State Conven- L
tion, were understood to be in perfect har
mony with the Views entertained by Hon.
Geobge. H. Pkkdleton. Kepudiatlon Is
not even covertly Insinuated therein. Tbe
Convention was satisfied tbat there had
Men enormous frauds in the creation ol
the' Public Debt 5 but notwithstanding

pledged faith by paying the Bonds uac

Where there was ho specific' provision to

NEW YORK, Dec. 10.
The Tribune says of the President's
message : This message is his worst, and
fortunately his last "Insult to American
people.' As- he-goes out 6I: the White
House he stops to-shake bis fist' at the Cap
ital, mere set tne men wno named htm,
the Representatives who impeached him,
the Senators who convicted, tbe majors of
the laws tbat fetter him, the servants of
the people who prevented him from re
rebels to power and making the
the war a useless sacrifice. Utterly pow
erless as he is to arrest the bright chariot
of destiny he-cannot forbear to throw mud
as it passes. - ' - -----
The World says of the treatment of the
message by Uougress yesterday, that Gen.
Grant's sycophants, both in the Senate and
the House, succeeded in putting an insult
upon the President. This extraordinary
proceeding is something more than wanton
insult tothe head of the Government. It
is flagrant contempt ot the Constitution.
The doctrines of the President, though sus
ceptible of confutation, are such as an hon
est man may entertain.
