This, is tho assertion of Mr. Chase in Lid annual report after, conterapla ting the fact that he has put afloat four hundred million dollars, and is about to put anoat seven hundred million dollars "more." He put out paper until it cieprecinieo. in tuo mar ket to sixty-six cents on the dollar, end then sold live twenty year stock, payable principal nnd interest in eold, for that paper, dollar for dollar, lie hat the right to redeem the stock in gold after five years. Suppose it can be done at the end of ten, there will then be paid one hundred and sixty dollars iu gold for the use of sixty six dollars in gold ten years, or nine per cent, per annum interest. This operation that gentleman calls "a wiso alchemy," and he plumes himself up. on ."wile alchemy' which he practices in the rrmnncr denounced by Richelieu, the wise cardinal, "in the crucible called debt," and in a moBt wonderful manner. When he advocated green backs, he set forth their advantages in his first report thus; "They are a loan without interest." "They are n uniform currency." 'They arc constantly equal to spe cie." "They are less ruinous than bank piper." "They are Government promises." "They are a legal tender." The people understood this and sub mitted to the issue, until, notwithstand ing their "constant equality to specie," they ate at a discount of thirty-four reins per dollar. Mr. Chase now proposes a pet bank circulation of v, hich the chief features are as follows: "They cost the Treasury per annum eighteen millions of dollars gold in-, tfi-est." "They have two thousand shades of uniformity." "They are never to be d h spe- cic"' " ' s. "They are more ruinousha&Uni ted States notes."-.- - .Jslfifc- "Tl.ev are promises nf.uiiknown pwns. J'They are not a legal tender." " Mr. Chase advances thetiO features of the new currency' as reasons why they are superior to the United States notes. Thus indicating the singular "alchemy" of his mind. But wc are told two hundred and twenty-six mil lions of -dollars of this irredeemable and "disastrous issue" are to be put afloat, because the , United States notes have reached the limits prescri bed by law. "And the Secretary thinks it clear ly inexpedient to increase the amount. When circulation exceeds the legiti mate requirements for real payments and exchanges, no addition to its vol ume will increase its v!uo. On the contrary, such addition tends inevita bly to depreciation: and depreciation, if addition be continued, will find its only practical limit in the utter worth leanness of the augmented mass." Now this understanding of the ul timate results of the paper system is correct, but 4n inaugurating a system of two thousand banks with two hun dred and twentyxsix. millions dollars of capit-il pledged to continued suspen sion, the Secretary knows that he is treating a power which will compel r.n Increase of the limit of capital in the same manner that he himself demon ded tho original limit- of fifty millions United Stated nofes, to be raised sue ccssively to two hundred, three hun dred, four hundred and fifty, nine hun dred millions, his present authority. It is always the noture of dependent pa per to demand more currency. This principle the Secretary himself recog nizes. " " ; "The Secretary proposes no change of this limitation, and places no reli ance, therefore, , on any increase of resources from increase of circulation. Additional loans, in this mode would, indeed, almost certainly prove illusory; for diminished value could hardly fail to neutralize increased amount." When his two thousand political banks have invested their money upon inflated values, and have reached their limit, a resistless clamor Avill arise foi uore money "to meet the demands of business," the stereotyped cry in such cuMs, and'tliii cry -will involve the "frtfiVof the national credit . kI$ut Mr. Chase s "wise alcl: icray 'manifests . itself, m other wonderful vays. ' He pretends that the four hun dred rmtlieit ' interest bearing legal tenders which ke nsked Congress for are riot currency, and will ttot inflate j prices, , The law says: . "And the said Treasury notes may be made a legal tender to the same ex tant as "United States bo'tes, 'for: their fac yajueqxcltiding interest." f ;IIe poniereS over these .notes from March third to August thirty-first, and then asked the New York banks , to leid him fifty millions on them at six per fcent,'wftd wroe us follows: 'r': j ' - ' "The issues iX- iktru will be ready during the month of September." .-.'. , Not ready yet, Deoen&ber twenty- .fth. -:-r i "Being legal tender fofr their face, 'excluding interest"; .' they, cannot' fall below the legal tender par.,',.; Bearing interest they cannot materially affect the; circulation with' reference to gold." Tho banks agreed, to the' loan, and Mr. .Chase, eager fop.. money, 'was only to willing to. ftocpromodate the banks. ' One of &eia: suggested that the notes idiould baar. 'tjiree ooftgons for semi-- annual intent; thUmtypoci tew Now comes the "wise alchemy" which provided that these notes "should not effect the circulation." The law says the notes are "legal tender for face exci.VSIVB of istkrkst." Mr. Chase says "they wont affect the circulation." The holder says "we'll see about that." lie takes a pair of scissors, cuts off the coupons, which he keeps to collect against the Government, and passes the "face for legal tender exclusive of interest. Mr. Chase is confounded with this "alchemy" of whieh the "wisdom" is oh the wrong side of the question. He will practice a Very long time before he will make gold out of paper by this plan of "alche my." N. Y. News. The Potomac A j in r Geo. JHc CIcIIiiq's i'eiicy. We think it not inopportune to pub lish the following letter from General McClellan to Gen. Halleck, dated August 4, 18G2. Uad his protest been regarded at that time and his suggestions heeded,. Richmond would have been in our possession more than a year ago, and thus the whole face of things changed. Hut fanaticism ruled tho hour, and McClellan did not suit tho mad fanatics, and hence he must be deposed, though by so doing thousands of lives . and hundreds of millions of money should be lost. McClellan was deposed, and what has sinbe occurred fully demonstrates the wickedness of the act: Berkley, Ya., 1 Aug. 4,12, M. ( Major General Halleck, Commander-in-chief: Your telegram of last evening is received. I must confess it caused me the greatest pain I ever oxperien ced, for I am convinced that the order to withdraw this army to Acquia creek will prove disastrous in the ex treme to our cause. I fear it will be a fatal blow. Several duys are neces sary to complete the preparation for so important a movement as this, and while they are in progress, I beg that careful consideration may be given to my statement. This army is now in excellent discipline and condition. We hold a debouch on both banks of the James river, so that we are free to act in any direction, and with the assis tance of the gunboats, I consider our communication as secure. We are 25 ' miles from Richmond, and are not likely to meet tho enemy in force sufficient to fight a bottle un til wt have marched 15 to 18 miles, which brings us practically within 10 miles of Richmond. Our largest line of lurid transportation would be from this point S.r) miles, but by the aid of the gunboats we enn supply the army by water, during its advance, certain ly to within 12 miles of Richmond.- -At Acquai Creek, we would le 75 miles from Richmond, with land trans portation all the way From here to Fortress Monroe is a inarch of 70 miles, for I regard it as impracticable to withdraw this army and its material except by land. The result of the movement would thus Le to march 145 miles to reach a point now only 25 miles distant, and to deprive ourselves entirely of the powerful aid of the gunboats and water transportation. Add to this the certain demoralization of this army which would ensue, the' terribly depressing effect upon the people of the North, and the strong probability that it would influence for eign powers to recognize our adversa ries;, and these appear to me sufficient to make it my imperative dutyjto urge, in the strongest terms afforded by our language, that this order be reciniled, and that far from recalling this army it may be promptly reinforced to ena ble it to resume the offensive. It may be said that there are no re inforcements available. I point to Gen. Burnside's forces, to those of Gen. Rope, not necessary to maintain a strict defense in front of Washington and Harper's Ferry; to those portions of the Array of the West not required for a strict defense there.. Here, di rectly in front of this army, is the heart of the rebellton. It is her that all our resources should be collected to strike the blow which will dcter n hie the fato of this nation. . AH points of secondary importance else where should be abandoned, and every available man brought here. A deci ded. victory here and the military strength cf the rebellion is crushed. It matters not what partial reveises wc may meet with; elsewhere; here is the true defense of Washington; it is here oe the banks of the James river that the fate of the Union shculd .be decided, ; - ; Clear In my conviction of rifrht, strong in the consciousness that I have ever been, and still am actuated sole ly by lovo of tuy country t knowing that no ambitious or selfish motives have influencedmefrpmthe commence ment of the wari I 4b now, what 'I never did in my life before. I entreat that this order may be recinded.. If my counsel does not prevail, I will with a sad heart obey ypuf order to the utmost of mv power, devo'tina to the movement one of the utmost del icacy and difficulty whatever skill I may possess, and may God grant that I may be mistaken in my forebodings. X shall at least have the internal, sat isfaction that I have, written and spo ken frankly,; and hare sought to do tho best in my power to arrest disaster from my country. ; v ' ; . George ft McClellan, ; ; ' i-i-'Uob iwo -..ullajor General, ; Tbe Youngest Soldier In the Ar my 1 l lie Cumberland. Last evening at the Caledonian supper, General Kosecrans t xtiibited the photograph of a boy who he said was the youngest soldier in the Army of the Cumberland. His nane is Johnny Clem, twelve years of age, a member of company C, zzel Michigan Infantry. His home is at Newark, Ohio; Ho first attracted Rosccrans' attention during a review at Nashville, where he was acting as marker for the regiment. His extreme youth (ho is quite Email for his age) and intelligent appearance interested the General, and calling him out, he questioned him as to his name, age, regiment, &c. Gen. Rosecrans Fpoke encouragingly to the young soldier, and told him to come and see him whenever he came where he was. He saw no more of Clom Until Sat urday last, when he went to his place of residence the Burnet House and found Johnny Clem sitting on his sofa, waiting to see him. Johnuy had ex perienced some of the vicissitudes of war since they- last met. lie had been Captured by Wheeler's cavulry near Bridgeport. His enptors took him to Wheeler, who saluted him with "What are you doing here, you d n little Yankee scoundrel?" Si id Johnny Cleiii) stoutly "Gen eral Wheeler. I am no more a d d scoundrel than you are, sir." Johnny said . that tho rebels stole about all that he had, including his pocket book, whieh contained only twenty-five cents. "But I would not have cared for the rest," he added, "if they hadn't stole my hat, which had three bullet holes in it, received at Chickamaugn." . ; i Ho was finally paroled and sent North. On Saturday he was on his way to Camp Chase to his regiment, having been exchanged. Gen. Rose crans observed that the young soldier had chevrons on his. arm, and asked the meaning of it. He said he was promoted to a corporal for shooting a rebel Colonel at Chickaniauga. ' The Colonel was mounted, and stopped Johnny at some point on the field, crying, "stop you little lankee dev il. Johnny halted, bringing his Austrian riflo to an "order," thus throwing tho Colonel off his guard, cocked his piece, (which he could easi ly do, being so short) arid suddenly bringing it to his shoulder, fired, the Colonel falling dead with a bullet through his breast. The little fel!pw told his story sim ply and modestly, arid the General determined to honor his bra very. He gave him the badge of "Roll of Hon or, which Mrs. baunders, the wile ot the host of the Burnet House, sewed upon Johnnj''s coat. His eyes glis tened with pride ns he looked upon the badge, and little Johnny seemed to have grown an inch or two taller, as he stood erect. He left his photo graph with Gen. Rosecran, who exhi bits it with pride. We may again hear from Johnny Clem, the youngest sol dier of the Army of the Cumberland. Cin.

Secretary Chase, The Mt. Veinon Canner thus does up Mr. Chase: ,1 ihree years ago, Mr. inase was a poor individual, depending upon a 1 limited practice at the bar, for a liv- lihood, so restricted, indeed, were his circumstances, that he was polled to sell his only property te en able him to make his grand entry jnto Washington, as the Aladin of the Treasury. : We do not refer to Mr. Chase's former poverty as a matter of reproach, for many a man, proba bly as honest as was Mr. Chase, is, nnd was, poorer than himself. But we refer to it to show that Mr. Chase is not only a Secretary of the Treas ury, and has been a Governor, and Senator, but he is now1 a Mngician. His salary, as a membe? of Mr Lin coln's Cabinet, is eight thousand dol lars per annum; and upon that income, by his economy and financecring, he has not only been able to live in a style, which no other man could main tain with less than fifty thousand a year, but on the marriage of his ac complished daughter, he has been a ble to give her out of 'his hard saved earnings, the out-fit of a princess. Tiaraed like ah empress, in diamonds and pearls, and robed in .white velvet, she stood on her bridal night, tho per sonification of regal beauty and puri ty . ' ' '. : Senator Spvague, the son-in-law of Mr. Chase, they say, is one , of for tune's favored sons; he lives in costly luxury and ease, and whets his morn ing appetite by reading the latest paragraph, nnouncing that 30,000 more Amcricms had slaughtered each other, and thus made 10,000 more widows, and added 40,000 or phans to the list of woe. 1 ' A Government ot One-Tenth of the 1'eople. President Lincoln, in his late Impe rial Proclamation, offers to recognize a Government in any of the seceded States that shell be elected and sus tained by onctenth of the people re siding therein provided that one tenth will comply with certain condi tions that he names! What kind of a Government will this be? AGovern ment of one-tenth over nine-tenths! Is it not a beautiful exemplification of the American doctrine, that the major ity shall govern? Docs it not har monize with the Declaration of Amer ican Independence, which says that all just Governmenis derive their pow er from the consent of the governed. One-tenth of the people give their as sent in a State,nino-tenths withhold it , but the onc-tcnth is to bo the Govern ment! This is American Republican ism under the Lincoln Administra tion. This is the way that it carries out the principles of Democrncy!--What a shocking libel and scandal up on all our American ideas of liberty and popular Government! What American can hereafter pretend, if it is carried out, that ho lives iu a Govern ment of the people, or in one resting upon the consent of the Governed? When this proposition is accepted we had better burn up all the copies of the Declaration of independence, for they will remind us of our npostney and shame, and openly admit that our political system is a Despotism, puvo and simple as much, so as lvussia or Austria.

This is the doctrine laid down by Mr. Lir.coln in his lato Message to Congress. The Declaration of Inde pendence requires the consent of the goveused to the government, but Mr. Lincoln is satisfied with obtaining the consent of one-tenth against the re maining nine-tenths of the people. Lincoln's principle is a beautiful ex emplification of the old American prinv ciple that the majority should rule! His majority is one-tenth! L't(c from Hon. Mr. Valland Iglram. . Windsor, C.
