rSIDAT, AUOTSX 31. 1877. Tueue is danger of-an Indian ont- Lreakln Washington Territory, nnd the settler are grWUj alarmed. Let jis reduce the army. The New York World glres the fol lowing epigrammatic communist plat form: A loaf for, every loafer, with full priTllegeot loafing. ... ( , , -Bkigham Youh6 Is at the point of death.

Iu August 1878, nccordjng to Secretary Sherman, gold and greenbacks will be equal, and gold will bring no premium whatever. The wise management of the Bepubliccn party wilf accomplish all this, and, rather than that party should have, the credit of it. some Democrats would throw the country bnck again to the days of 1861. Virginia bonds have advanced four dollars in all the money markets oi the world.since the Conservative state con vention repudiated the repndiatlonlsts This is the first lesson and the earilcst trulls of hciwity. The official statement of the receipts and expenditures of tbt United States Government daring-the fiscal rear ending June SO, 1877, is published The total receipts Tvero t269,"000.000. and the aggregate expenditures $238, C00.00Q. From every Section of the country come the tidings that times are 1m proving. The merchants of New York Philadelphia, Boston. Baltimore, Chi cago and St. Louis are all anticipating the largest trade this fall they have bad for years. The Buffalo Courier (Democratic:) says "Resumption at the earliest possible day is demanded by every public and private Interest, and when it comes, all political parties will be glad to be freed of a most troublesome and disturbing question." . Wade Hampton in bis speech at the wane buipnur springs lost week ex pressed, his satisfaction that peace should have prevailed nt the South during the recent strikes. Thousands of volunteers, he said, were ready to go north from South Carolina and aid la putting down the rioters. The Pennsylvania Democrats nt thek State Convention, last-week had a protracted struggle in committee ovr financial questions. The Convention finally indorsed the hard money plat form adopted at St- Louis last year, thus putting themselves in direct an tagonism with tbo Democracy of the northwest. Dceihg the war, when fM govern-, ment needed money to pay our soldiers, it .was considered, an act of patriotism for capitalists to invest their money tn United Stttes bonds. Now, however, according to certain small-bore demag ogues, .a man. who owns a Government bond should.be proscribed. It Is only in -a comparatively small area of the northwest that the green - trackers are able to make even a show ing of strength. ' In the east they are utterly Inslgnificant-in, numbers, while, according to the New Orleans Timet, "(Democratic) "theSonth ttHI hence forth be, with a fair degree of unani mity, in favor of bard money." Judge West, Republican candidate for Governor orOhlo, has a peculiar trouble ct the eyes. J,ike Mr,WcIlert, his "wislon is lrajtedj' That is to say, he can see, an objecttlirectly in front .of him at any distance, but to see things at cither tide, to swesp the ho rlzon, he Is obliged to tnm completely around, He needs a constant atten dant. . TnE scientific world Is Juit now greatly excited by the discovery made by Professor Hall at the United States Naval Observatory at Washington on the JCih inst,, that the planet Mar has a satellite about one lymdred hilles in diameter and distant from It . about 12,000 or 15,000 mile. Heretofore .it has been thought that Mars had no moon, and thf discovery puts . s big leather Jn the cap ot American astron omers. Or late the St. Joseph Gazette has shown a wonderful improvement In the tone midmattor of its editorials, and has diecttssed public questions with a fairness- qalte atiuxunl-with papers jof its politics. As a result several shy sters, whom inscrutable providence permits to edit Democratic papers in the northwest, -are barking furiously ntits heels. But the Gazette will win: straightforward manliness always jloes. A pooling arrangement bus been ef fected, after a prolonged contest, be tween the two great telegraph corpora tions of the countrj-. the Western Union and the Atlantic & Pacific. Tho terms of the newly formed com bination are, that the Western Union shall take seven-eights of the receipts, jpetj the Atlantic & Pacific Iho remain ing onc-cigth. A material Increat e In rates of transmission is to take place forthwith. That blatant blatherskite, Norman J. Colm&n, receives the .following blast from the Albany (Mo.)

In refreshing contrast to the mass of senseless drivel with which the , coun try is now flooded by afplring;flnan- clnl blatherskites, will beSfo.tU the sound and statesmanlike nttera&ees of Secretary SherrSanJ1 whoM recent " ad dress at Mansfield. Ohio, we publish on the first page of this week's Sentinel. As the subject is one upon which all our readers desire to be correctly in formed, we commend this address to them as by far the ablest and most lucid yetglvsn to 'tho" people. The language of Jtjs suchjis will redily reach the comprehension of nil; and ns Secre tary Sherman is himself the author ot the resumption bill, bo is better fitted than any one iu tbo nation to define the aims which that bill was intended to accomplish. The eminent fairness "of the Secre tary's address is one of the first things that will strike every intelligent reader. Although he Is the author of the so- called resumption bill, he docs not hes itate to point Out the defects he has found in its practical workings. But that the bill, even without such amend mentsos he would like, will lead us speedily and certainly to the point aimed at by the solid intelligence of the countrj', the Secretary is emphatic and outspoken. On the general question .of early specie-rcsuroptlo'nlilsjangiiage' Is so terse and lucid that it will bear rcps'tl tlon. We Quote: "And ndw.fellow-cltlzc'nhfhls brings me to the question upon which' there' is to much diversity ot opinion, so many strange delusions, and that is the question ot specie payments. What do we mean by this phrase ? Ia ltlbat we arc to have no paper money in cir culation? If so. I am ns much opposed to it as any of yon. Is it that we are to retire oar greenback ' circulation P It so I nm opposed to it, and have often so said. What I mean by specie pay ments is simply that paper money ought to be made equal to coin, so that when yon receive it, it will buy as much. beef, corn or clothing as coin Now the importance ot this canuot be' overestimated. A depreciated paper money cheats' and robs every man whp receives it or n portion or tne reward of his labor or production : and, in all times, it has been treated by statesmen as one ot tne greatest evils mat can befall a people. There are times when such money Is unavoidable, as during warpr&reat public calamity, but it has always been the anxious care ot statesmen to return nsaln (o tho solid standard of coin Therefore It is that specie payments. or a specie standard, is pressed by the great body of intelligent men who stndv these questions ns an Indispcn sable prerequisite for steady business and good times, jnow most ot you will agree to all this, and will only diner ns to tne mode or time and man ner: but there is a large class of peo ple who believe that paper can be, and opgnt to oe, made into money w itnont any promise oi nope or reucrnp lion; that n note should be printed "mis is a dollar, and oe made i legal-tender. I regard this ns a mild form of luna cy, and have no disposition to debate with mm who Indulge in snch' "delu sions. ineynave prevailed to some extent nt different times in nil countries but their life has been brief, and they have ever shared the fate of other pop ular delusions. Congress will never entertain Such, a proposition, and if it should, wc- know that tht scheme worrd not standu moment before, the Suprcinor Court. That Court only maintained the- constitutionality of the lesnl-tcnder promise to pavn dollar bv a divided Court, and on the ground that it was issued during the war. ns iu the nature ot a torced loan., to be redeemed npon the payment ot a real dollar: mat is. so many grains ot sit vcror.goKU I therefore dismiss snch wild theories, and speak only of those who are wii.ing to assume as an ax iom on this subject that gold and sil ver, or folned money, have been prov cn by all human experience to be the best possible standards of value, and that papcr.money Is. simply fa promise to pay sncn coiueu money, nnu snouiu be made and kept equal to coined money, by bolng convertible on dc mand." The declaration that the wild- infla tion of greenbacks advocated by cer tain small and senseless yel- Icrs for inflation, would at once be knocked in tne head by the supreme court, ,1s one upon which the people generally nave not yet suf ficiently reflected ; yet the Secretary's statements are undoubtedly tme. Even If such .madness ns illimitable iuflxttanibould prevail in the unthink ing minds of the masses, the Supreme court would flnjlnubteiljy .pronounce sucb.a course Illegal and. .void. So far, therefore', as the hariun scarum non'ense of such papers ns the Holt JCpnntjr Press, Is concerned (wsvaro ad dressing onrseives, primarily,, to the people of Holt county) it may be dis missed as unworthy of discission. So far us the question xot lunacy Is concerned, we have heretofore express ed ourselves in language strikingly similar to that of Secretary Sherman. Ou the question of the rcmoiictiza- tlon f silver the Secretary has little losny;yethl8 declaration that "in 1860 Congress pledged the public faith that the United States would pay gold or silver dollars for United States notes" leaves no donbt of hi being, in lavorof the remonetlzatlon of the sil ver dollar. This is in accord wlth4be position heretofore tnken by the Senti nel. After showing that we are. In reality. at the door of resumption, the Secre tary continues: "We have conducted tUo vast operations ot our loans, al ready referred to. without .disturiiinrr the course ot trade or cauMiig a ship ment in gold. All the ears expressed so often in the papers at 'these juove- - I. . . . 1... . .. 1 . . nicjiis iiiivc uuuu ymvzjiMJ .ue groilllU. less. Wc are now within fivrdegrrcs of the specie' standard. We have stilt sev enteen months before us in which to complete tho tusk. The same progress that has been mado since the firet ot MnTch. continued twelve months long er, will certainly br'ng ns to the spe cie standard. I feel confident in saving to you this day that, if undisturbed, with or without n ehange of tho law, every dollar Of Unitrd States notes will, pcforo tbo time fixed for resump tion, .buy as much ns an equal amount Jn ejlber gold or sjlver." These words, from such a source, are conclusive. Resumption will so in be an accomplished fact. The honesty of the. .nation is pledged to honest. money, nnu. inai. pieuge will be re deemed PSESIDENT HAYES OK HONEST MONEY, Recent developments show conclu sively that President II aires intends to mak'e the early resumption of specie payments the main object of his ad ministration. In his letter of acceptance ho said : It is my conviction that the feeling- ot nnccr- Ulnty inseparable froic Irredeemable paper currency, with Its fluctuatlous of value, Is one of the great obstacles to the revival of confi dence and business, and to a return of prosper ity. That uncertainty can be removed In but one way the resumption of specie payments. But the longer thelnstamllty or our money sys tem Is permitted to continue, the greater will be the Injury Inflicted npon our economical In terests and alt classes of society. If elected, I shall approve every appropiatc measara to ac complish the deslied end, and shall oppose any slep backward. In pursuance of this lntcntoln, he, Immediately on his Induction into office, appointed Senator Sherman (the author of the resumption bill) as his Secretary of the Treasury. Two weeks ago, Secretary Sherman visited his old home in Ohio and de livered nn address on the money ques tion, which we publish to-day. This address was evidently submitted to the President before the Secretary left Washington, and received his appro val. Flcnce It may be considered as settled that the President Intends to take no backward step, but will stead ily press forward toward resumption at lhe time fixed, by law. As a consequence, the greenback ad vocates have already commneced de nonnclng him. The. St. Joseph. Chron iele a few days ago contained nn ex tremely bitter article on the subject. and the lesser lights In this section will undoubtedly quickly follow suit. tn fact it will be demonstrated that their violence is only equalled by their impotence. The country is "steadily moving toward specie resumption, nnd those who get In the way will be sure ly run over. Mr. TUden was quite ns emphatically committed to hard money as Mr. Hayes, and there never has been any real danger that the govern ment wonld net dishonestly in the pay ment of its debts. Only a lew noisy demagogues have kept up a hullaballoo on the subject of illimitable green backs, nnd by their very Impndeuce have cajoled some good men into their ranks. They ought not to be thcre.and they should get ont ns quickly as pos slble. On last Saturday morning during the ptevnlancc of a terrific wind and rain utorm at Omaha, about five bun dred feet of, the Union Pacific bridge across the Missouri river at that point was precipitated ln.o the water. The loss is estimated at about $350,000. A hypocritical blatherskite in St Louis, similar to some wc have in Holt county, has just started a paper In that city, called the Star, which profes6os to be the special champion of the work ing men. As n sample of how much he really cares for the welfare of work ing men, he pays bis printers only- twenty cents a thousand for setting type, while all the other papers in St Louis pay jnst twice that amount. This Is how it goes. When the Holt County Prest recent ly changed bands, we welcomed Its new editor cordially and extended to him our heartiest good wishes. He did not respond very pleasantly but that matters not. Yet iu his fourth issue, witbont a particle of provocation, he comn,enc- cd throwing slurs at the Sentinel. We disliked to respond, bnt felt it a duty to warn him that be was not in a con dltlon to hold a controversy w'ith any one. This we did in ns few words as possible. The flies of our respective papers will show that he has devoted columns to the Sentinel where the Sentinel has only devoted sentences to the Preu. In his yesterday's issue be squeals Very well ; we knew he wonld do that, Now, let him stop .his references to the Sentinel and all will be well. Other wise, 'we will certainly say something that will hurt his feelings. The General Freight Agents of the eastern railroads have given notice advertisement to parties having claims for eoqds destroyed by the rioters at Pittsburg to send in their claims to, the attorneys of any of the companies and they will be presented to the authorities of Alleghany cohnty (In which Pitts burg Is situated) without expense to the claimant, the county being respon sible for the losses. This, says nn ex change, is one of the first fruits' of moh violence and Communistic teachings. All the fruits have not been tmthered yet. As a rule, In cases of this kind. capital una labor have to share equally. The losses occasioned by the Pittsburg mob foot up abont $6,000,000. One- half of this amount must be reimbursed by the capitalists who stood bv and did iLbthlpc to stop the depredations of tho tnobVnnd one-ball bribe laborlnsrnrcrr wno were aireciiy or indirectly respon sible lor burning and destroying prop- erty. This is the punishment that follows defiance of law and lnterfer eh.ee with tho rights of others. 1 Tun Free-Lovers had u big time at Lawrence. Mass.. last -week. Three thousand people were present, and a number of speeches were made in which all sorts of loose and scnudalaus views were advocated.
