They reached Salt Lake in safetj', but the "Tough Hoys,'' finding the Mormons unfriend ly, made no stoppage, but bore olf rapidly to the southwest and got through to California without molestation. The other party, how ever stopped several days at Salt Lake city to rest, recruit and replenish their stores. They found the Mormons quite unfriendly, an pro cured even the scantiest addition to their sup piies with difficulty, but otherwise were not uiuk-titrd. Leaving the inhospitable city, they took the gouthuni route to San Hernar- diuo. o sooner, however, bud they left the C'ty, than they were exposed to $ thuuand annoyances. Coining from Ihe two stalesj from which fifteen yeurs before the Mormousj had been expelled by violence, and now being exasperated by reports of the advance of Hu chanau's invading amy, the Ioruion's seem to have settled it among ihcu-ielves that tills body of emigrants, with their large number the same interest in the hands of private in dividuals, or in the hands of the banks, as they do whun deposited in the treasury to se cure bank circulation.' The question is an old one, and the fallacy of the answer has been exposed some hundreds of times. Still another exposure may not bo out of place. The abolition of banks would save no inter est, but the abolition of their circulation might. The abolition of the circulation of he banks would save the interest on the amount of bonds which an equal amount of greenbacks would purchase, less the tuxes which the banks pay on their circulation. This is as true as any proposition in mathe matics. The amount of national bank notes, we will suppose, is 350,LMK,i(J0. If these notes were withdrawn, an equal amount of greenbacks could be issued without neces sarily depreciating them at all, and these trreenbacks would buy, in round numbers, -'JOtj.OOG.OtM) of six per cent, bonds, at present rates, and there would be a saving of some $ I7,7flu7'u() annually as long a the green backs should remain outstanding, less 500,000 taK on circulation i that Is, iherc would be a nut saving of more than fourteen mill, ions. This is as certain a the pronosltlon that two ami two w;i!.u fuur." Another point in reference to the national PENDLETON. The speech of Geo. II. Pendleton at tialllp olis, Ohio, last week, is such a ditlerent in terpretation of the Ohio platform from that given by the inflationists generally, and, at all events, presents Mr. Pendleton's own finan cial pos'tion in alight so different from that in winch we have been taught to view it, that we feel it both a pleasure and duty to state what his exact views are as thus newly ex pounded. Mr. Pendleton declares that he is a "hard- money man," and that a "return to specie payment snouiu on Kept steiwny in view;' that the "democratic party of Ohio," as he understands the party, "points to the middle path of safety," avoiding both contraction and inflation. He states that the "measure for the volume of the currency is the wants of trade,'' and that this is to be determined in the "judgment of the government;" that he is in favor of "coin as the basis of currency, and that a paper currency should be conver tible into coin at par." There is some darkness (not to say absur- dity) in what he utters about measuring the "volume of currency by the wants of trade," for if there is to be such a gauge of the vol ume, then a good part of the rest of his argu ment against further cantraction at present would fall to the ground, for nothing is plain er than that the present financial condition proves that this volume of carrency just now is in all the leading cities in the country largely in excess of the "wants of trade." It is not more currency the country wants, but more trade. Instead of bringing up the vol- ume of currency, the ellort just now should be to increase the volume of trr.de. However, barring his nonsense about the "volume" business, we can get along with Mr. Pendleton pretty well if he will stick to the text as far as he has gone, and take no other departure from what we now under stand to be Jus financial platform, to wit: 1. Ketire ttiu national bank notes with green backs; 9.

Wednesday's despatches from !Xew York somewhat startled financial circles by an nouncing the failure of the great banking house of Duncan, Sherman & Co., for thirty years regarded as one of the very staunchest banking houses in New York city. Their li abilities are placed at six millions, and con sidering their almost unlimited credit all over the world, the failure is as notable as that of, Jay Cooke it Co., that precipitated the great panic of 1S73. Happily, however, this fail ure is not likely to bring any such wide spread disaster in its train. The relations of the banking house of Duncan, Sherman it Co. were mainly with Europe, and very few bank of this country find themselves in the least involved in the disaster. The most se rious su'verers among our own people, it is said, are those who are traveling in Kurope and carry letters of credit from this firm. Many of these, finding their endorser slipped from under them, will doubtless have to en counter many annoying if not serious embar rassments, and may be expected to make trackst homewanl by the very first available steamer. The inilise Is said to have tuado too heavy udvanuts on cotton, and to have been badly scoaped in un attempt to bull the gold mar ket during the recent rapid decline of that metal in Wall street. While, however, the disaster will have no immediate seriously disastrous effect on this side, it must add greatly to the already more than serious finan cial distress in London.

It tran spires that, while it was well known that in July the U. S.
