The New Game of the Bondholders
The New Game of the Bondholders —Repudiation.
Mr. Boqmau4 ot Pennsylvania, one of
the! bondholders1 Representatives in Con
gress, and ever watclifnl of. their Joterest,
on Thursday last, introduced in the House
of Representatives a, ? bill to .regulate the
value of United States legal tender notes
In coin and provide for their redemption."
It was referred to the committee on Ways
The bill, as we learn by telegraph, dl
recta tbe Secretary-of the Treasury to
cause gold coin to be exchanged for United
States legal tender notes.' whenever de
manded at the -Treasury, in sums not hss
than one hundred dollars, and at tbe fol
lowing rates of exchange 2 ' For the first
month; 9100 in coin for $133 in notes; for
the secend month, $100 in coin for $134 n
notes, and at the decrease of one dollar t r
month until par ls;reachei.'!i " ' ;'; '
'"When It is recollected that the notes.
thus : to be- redeemed in coin, at less than
one-third their face value, wefe,1 when Is
sued, promised to he paid; dollar fpr"do!.
Iar, in hard money, and that, while tbe law
compels every man to Whom ' a dollar is
due, to lake these notes,j' at their 'face, 'Ini
payment of all debts du,' even ' when the
Contract' specifies that the debt' Is to be
paid in ioldv this attempted repudiation is
of the basest, meanest kind, and if resorted
to. will be a lasting andeternal disgrace
On the Government that allows it. . ' '
Mr.' Broo&Ill claims that the debt due
the bbhdholder must be paid In gold, al
though; 'when the debt was incurred, the
person purchasing the bonds sold, bis coin
for from One and ' a' halt to two and one
half more in greenbacks than he paid In
coin',' and J with the.' depreciated 'currency
thus'1 received 'bought the bonds that fie
how claims Should be paid at their lace lb
gold. This claim, thus set up. Is In defl
ance of the letter and spirit of the contract,
which promised ' that they'ahOuld be ro
debmed In the same currency In which:' the
debt was contracted. ,
" The greenbacks,' the payment of which
Is thus to be repudiated for it. as much
repudiation to force a Go verment creditor
to recelveja part and to lose the balance, as
it is to force him to 'lose the whole, the dis
honor being' the sanieare Jn the hands of
.ae people, aiio uuvernment maue mem
a legal tender in payment of debts..', The;
are the 'sole , currency in use for labor,
among the merchants, , farmers, mechanics
anaotners.'xne man wbo. works for one
dollar per day, is paid in , a currency
that Mr. Broom all's bill ssys is worth but
sixty-five cents on the dollar,, and ; thus
the laboring man is swindled out of more
than one-third of the price of his labor.
The object of this Is, by a forced - return
to specie payments, to enable tbe Bond
holder to get one dollar in: coin for bonds
for which, when purchased, the , price
ruled from 45 to 70 cents on the dollar,
It is a terrible thing to repudiate a debt
due by the Government to those who hold
its bonds, say the Radicals who go for gold
for the bondholder and rags for the people.
Yet these same men, by their representa
tives In Congress, wish to repudiate" a
solemn debt due by the Government to its
citizens, contracted as a forced loan for
the Usue of greenbacks was nothing but a
forced loan which was promised to be re
deemed in coin, while the bonds were to be
paid in greenbacks.
We-- hear no outcry against -this re
pudiation from the bondholders' press, and
we expect to bear none. As a unit, either
actively, or, passively, they will support
It. If successful, we warn its getters up
that they, while they will raise a whirl
wind, cannot direct tbe storm. "V".
The bonds will be paid, according to
law, in greenbacks, before tbe country can
afford to return to specie payments.
English on American Elections—
The Contrast.
English1 writers on "America" and
"Americans" of tbe Dickkks-Tboixopk
school denounce the manners, customs and
habits of tbe people of this country as r ude,
lawless tonder of a free fight than of a
good dinner. An exchange, while re
marking upon the perfectly quiet manner
the late election for President was con
ducted, contrasts the conduct of our rude
and lawless population with that ot the
people of Great Britain - at their recent
election tor members of Parliament, in a
manner that reflects but little credit on our
Trans-Atlantic neighbor. Among the
election episodes we find it recorded that
at Bolton ; a mill was attacked and torn
down btc&u8e a number of voters were
supposed to be detained inside. At Black
burn, a rash voter shouted " Horkbt for
ever S? and was Immediately brained with
paving stones. At the same place, a high
board fence was erected at the hustings for
the purpose of separating the parties, the
Liberals on one side and tbe Conservatives
on the other; but before they . voted they
broke several heads by pitching rocks over
the barrier. At Cupar, in Fifeshire, a can
didate was stoned in his carriage. ' : At
BeUastV a mob broke all the windows and
(he dome of the court house, and-kept up
continuous volley of stones throughout
the proceedings, while a detachment of
toughs gained and held the platform. At
Sh ffield, the shops of Mr. Roebcck's sup
porters were sacked by members of the op
posite party'; and from many other places
come reports of skirmishes, interference of
the military, and the reading of the riot
act. -The English have yet considerable to
learn in the way of conducting an election
decently and in order.
How Missouri was Made Radical.
Over fourteen hundred men, old residents
of St. Joseph, Missouri, were denied the
right to vote at tbe recent election, because
they would not take an oath which tbe Su
preme Court of the United States has de
clared VOid. ' . ' r-
A Mr. Todd, an uncle of Mrs. Abraham
Lincoln, was denied tbe privilege of vo
ting in tbe same state, in the recent elec
tion, because be bad relations in tbe rebel
army l Todd Is over sixty years old, and
the vote in the county of Boone, where be
resides, by this process is reduced from
3,000 to about 400.

Thb Cincinnati Chronicle takes us to task
oecause it says "the Ohio Statesman re
joices over the destruction ot one of the de-
fenses of New York harbor, built by the
National Government,and named in honor
il General Lafatkttic"
We rejoiced, because during the war,
without warrantof law, without crime, and
it.heut triau American citizens were
elzed and forcibly taken trom their homes
ind incarcerated within its walls, tve re
joiced at its destruction, as the liberty lov
ers of the world, with Lafayette at their
head,re jolced when the French Bastile was
demolished. "If rebuilt" we use the lan
guage of the article on which tbe Chronicle
omments "it will stand as a' monument
ol infamy to those, who, bf their despotic
acts, brought so foul a statu on the honor ot
the country." .
The Chronicle wishes these "bygones to be
bygones." , So say we, but the wish cannot
be. The false imprisonment of American
cltlaens at Fort Latayette,coupled with the
infamy of Stahtow and Skwabd will have
their place in history, and form the foulest
blot on our national escutcheon.
Thb Dayton Ledger thinks that the Dem
ocratic State Central Committee acted
wisely in fixing the 7th of July as the time
for holding the Democratic State Conven
tion. The Cincinnati Enquirer is not so sure
abOUt it. ' '

The Crops.
i Our exchanges noto that the corn yield
will turn out considerably below the aver
age in quantity. : A full yield Is one thou

will, ot course, be bigl. This is not pleas
ant news for housekeepers. It is comfort

own. The potato crop is generally good.
