to pay Gold to the Bondholders—
to pay Gold to the Bondholders— Ground and Lofty Tumbling.
In the, so-called, United States Senate.on
VTednejsda, so. the telegraph informs jas,
. Mr. Senator Sherman reported back from
the Finance committee, without amendment.-the
joint resolution Introduced by
Sir. Edmunds In November, 1867, which
reads as follows :
'Joint resolution pledging the faith of the
, m com or ut tquivaleiu: , ;
' Whereas. Thebubllc debtioftheUnlted
States was, except where specially other
wise orderat, contracted upon tne faith and
credit of the United States, that the same
would be paid or, redeemed io. coin, or. its
equivalent: and ' ' ..' ,.:
"Whereas, Doubts have been raised as
to the duty and propriety of dlscharginic
ouch debt in coin or its equivalent; there-
jore, :, . .. :. .. . . ..... '. - . :. :
' "tleaotzea' bv the Senate and House or Jleb'
retentatives of the United States. Ac..' That
the public debt of the United States, except
in oases wherein the law authorizes the
ame, or .provision was expressly made, as
owing in coin or Its equivalent, ana int
faith of the United States is hereby sol
emnly pledged to its payment, according-
, Aiubiguone as he above is, it means that
the bondholders, who sold ttelr eold Sot
three dollars la greenbacks for one in eolo,
and purchased bonds with the legal tender
ootes,,dollar for dollar, are to be paid in
gold, which will add over one-third to the
vast indebtedness ot tbe country, i." ;
Five months after this joint- resolution
was offered .by Mr. Edmcmds, and' after it
bd been in the possession of tbe same Sen
ator Sherman, as chairman of tbe Finance
committee oi . the Senate, that sentlemen
wrote a letter to a friend In New York,
which was so sensible aud so patriotic that
his friend published It, as follows: i .-, r
"WASHINGTON, March 20, 1868.
" Dear Sir : I was pleased to receive
your letter. My personal interests are tbe
same as yours;, but, like you, I do not In
tend to be innurnced by tbera. My con
struction of tbe law is tbe result ot careful
examination, and I feel quite sure an im
partial court would confirm it,' if the case
could be tried before a court. 'Your idea is
that we propose to repudiate or violate i
promise when we offer to redeem the prin
cipal ln legal tenders. I think the bond
holder violates hit promise when he refuses to
take the tame kind of moneti he paid
jor tne bona. If tne case is to De tested Dy
tbe law, 1 am right. : IS it is to ba tested
by Jay . Cooke's, advertisements, .1 am
wrong.' I bate repudiation or anything
like it, but we ougnt not to be deterred
from doinsr what is rieht bv fear ot unde-
erved epithets.' If, under. the law as it
stands, the holders of. five-twenties can
only be paid In gold, then we are repudia
tors If we propose to pay otherwise. ' 11 on
the other hand the bondholder can legal
lt demand only the-kind ef money,, be
paid, then he Is a repudiator, and an ex
tortioner to demand money more valuable

"To Hon. A. Mann, Jrn Brooklyn Heights
In the fall of 1S67, Mr- Sherman made a
speech , in. Hamilton . county, commented
upon at great length in the. Cincinnati Ga
zette, of July L 1863, in Which speech that
Senator took the ground that . the bond
were payable in gold, and that "any body
who was for paying them tin greenbacks
was a repudiator that the . bonds were
promised to be pa.id in eoin; the Govern
men t would newer violate its pledge,, and,
says Mr. Sherman, "it never has been vio
lated, and so help me God, I ; would never
aid (n its .violation, whatever may: be tbe
consequences.'! : So much for John Sher
Man .in. 1867. iv: , , :-..'::.! .. . :
In 1868, forgetful of his claim that tbe
20's were to be paid in gold, be wrote to
his Brooklyn Heights friend, that "the
bondholder violates bis promise when he
refuses to take the same kind of money he
paid for" the bonds," -which, in every single
caie, was greenbacks. r :
Two months after this, as chairman ot
the Finance committee ot the Senate, he
reports back and has passed, a' resolution
pledging Congress to pay' the,' bonds -in
gold, i i" !!.. f-"v
These facts make benator b Herman like
the Duke of Buckingham,, who Dhyden
describes as having ,--;-;.:.:; . j. ( ?
, "A mind m varied that ke irenirto b -.
Not one, "but all mankind's epitome;
-' And in the course of one reroiving moon
- Is fiddler, statesman, ehemiat and buffuon."
I . nnere ur.sHEBMAN wiu Deon wis great
question six months hence, nobody knows.
and nobody cares. On both sides of the
same question denouncing men as repudi
ators for wishing to pay the debt of tbe
Republic in legal tender notes, and then
denouncing the bondholders as repudiators
because they will not receive it, and then
voting to, pledge the Government to pay
it in gold, when he knows; that it was not
promised in gold, was not expected to be
paid in gold, and that in gold it never will
be paid, is more than sufficient to make
men think that Mr. John Sherman has no
mind of his own, and that his opinions are
not worth the rush light by which they are
written. ''
i xn February, 1S62, Mr. Sherman voted
for, and advocated the passage ot the so
called legal tender act. That law, making
greenbacks the only lawful tender in the
payment of debts, anticipated the loans oi
Which the 5-20 bonds were Issued. .Thus
tbe law gave notice of the currency in
which they were to-be paid, . i . ;
' "And such United States notes shall be
received tbe fame as coin, at their par value.
in payment for any loans that, may be
nereatter mane or negotiated Dy.' tbe Sec
retary of the Treasury."
And to make tbe assurance thus given
d nibly sure, and to the end that there
might be neither cavil or dispute, the very
greenbacks given by the bondholders a
purchase money of the bonds, had endorsed
thereon'. ' '"' ' ' '" " '- ' '
i "This note is a legal tender for all debts,
public and private, except duties on imports
and interest on the public debt, and is re
ceivable in payment of all loans made to
the United States." - '
And for the law under which these votes
were issued, and the bonded debt was in
curred, John Sherman voted.. No law, ho
authorized promise -no good reason has he
or any other man advanced, why the debt
thus incurred, should be paid in any thing
but the-currency promised, yet we find
Congress, at his instigation, after he
had furnished, 1 to his Brooklyn
Heights friend, reasons why It should
not be done, pledging that the bonds
thus Issued' should be paid In gold, thus
to make tbe taxpayers responsible
r the money tbe Senators, who voted for
the resolution, attempted to vote into their
own pockets.
'AH the- resolutions Congress can pas
cannot make wrong right, and tbe bonds
will be paid in greenbacks, and in nothing
else. ; ' '; " '"'
So much for John Sherman and his feats
of ground and lofty tumbling. .
The New York Tribune says of Senator
Morton's resumption bill: "The tender
hearted genius who, fearing that his dog
could not bear the pain of having his tail
cut off all at once, decided to cut it off halt
an Inch per day, is no longer unique. Sena
tor Morton has outdone him in bis own
line." " ' '"
What is your consolation in life and In
death?" asked a clergyman of a younc
miss In a Bible class that he was teaching.
The young iady blushed and hesitated.
Will you not tell me?" urged the clergy
man. "I don't want to tell his name," said
tbe ingennous girl, "but I've no objection
to telling you where he lives." ,

The Georgia Question.
