Y. Tribune. MONEY AND IT'S POWER. Nothing is more remarkable, in the present aspect of parties' in Eng land, than the deep and constant in terest which the' conservatives pro fess to cherish in the welfare of La bor.' To hear these modern descen dants and representatives of the plun dering barons of the middle : ages, one would almost suppose himself in the midst of a Socialist Conventicle, . - . . . . r . 1 . . with such a mixture. oi venemouv zeal and practical sense do they de claim against the domination of mon ey, the depression of wages, and the starvation of the poor. AH this is natural and encouraging. . It is nat ural, because the old feudal aristoc- racy and landa proprietary, finding themselves in the minority, and press- ed rapidly toward the verge of de struction by commerce and the pow-1 er of the money-bag, must resist to the last, and raise such cries ol dis tress as the desperation of the mo ment may sucsest. It is encoura ging, because it recognizes the force of new principles, and the .value of new interests, which are now rising into prominence, and are destined to rule the world. ... Nor do we suppose that the Brit ish - Conservatives are insincere in thus contending for the masses and adopting radicalism into their creed, even thongh they are careful not to adopt any part of it which militates against their own privileges and po sition. It is true we have not heard from any of their accredited organs an argument in Tavor of Universal Suffrage, an admission of the native Right of man to the soil, nor any statement of the outrageous and im pious wrong of Land Monopoly. This was not to be expected, lor it is by Land Monopoly, handed down from their robber ancestors, that they live and have their, being; it is that Land Monopoly, which, with despe rate efforts, they are struggling to preserve. . Dut seeing that the revo lutionary onslaught of the new fi nancial aristocracy, working . by means of Free Trade, is not only de priving them of their wealth and im portance, but impoverishing the poor and ."beggaring and starving tbe la borer at the same time, thev march all their forces against it, not openly in behalf ol their own cause, for which the world cares not a copper, but in behalf of the more numerous class of sufferers in whom the whole world, either from necessity or con viction, entertains an anxious and in creasing interest. Whoever had read carefully the leading article in the last number ol Blackwood 's Magazine must have heen struck bv this combination of toryism and radicalism. The article is evidently from the pen of the vete ran Alison, and it is marked by all his ability and skill. It is entitled The Currency Uxlension Act of ture, and aims to show what benefi cial influence the gold of California must exercise throughout the world by keeping up the value of labor, and keeping down the tyranny of money. But incidentally the writer puts lorth ideas of a quite far-reach- ng nature, which, sound as they are, we usually look for in a very differ ent quarter. . The precious metals, having been fixed upon as the universal medium of exchanges, it follows that the amount of exchanges whicn lanes place in any community, and conse quently, the amount of production, the nctivity or non-activity ol labor, and the prosperity or decay of the entire community .must depend on the abundance or scarcity or these met als in circulation. . Where they cir culate in abundance, everything thrives;' where they are. wanting, business stops, ruin seizes on all clas ses, and, no matttr what its previous strength, . the social structure falls to nieces. The, constant increase of popula tion reauires a corresponGing in crease in the amount of circulating monev. .The quantity of cold and silver coin which would be adequate to the wants of a country with three millions of inhabitants, must be dis astrously insufficient when that coun trv comes to contain fifteen millions Besides, the accumulation or weaun .. in the hands of individuals and the progress of hixurv, draw a constant ly increasing amount of gold and silver from circulation, to apply it to purposes of utility and ornament. Ana tne greater ane scarcity oi mo ney, the more of it is so Withdrawn, since its possessors beceme richer and richer Irom the decline in-the com narative value of other articles. Thus in the latter days of the Roman Empire, whose ruin, according to this writer, was brought on Tmainly by the insufficiency "of the circulating medium; the ncn pairicisns uwuoq in gold and silver vases, statues and the value of at -least-M-ttertiblepaper, property of some sort .--A .warn ornaments,3 ha ssp "jssuei in tpnn hundred millions of dollars. And at that very time ' the army, which bad made : Rome mistress ol the world, dwindled away ' because there was no money to pay the sol diers, and the rich fields of Italy ran to- waste because - agriculturar labor could not. get Jiving prices for its, prb- ' To a similar state of things Chris tendom has lately been tending. It is true that scientific discovery-; and mechanical invention have'given a prodigious start to human energy. and greatly ; contributed to; the- su periority of modern times..' But the amount of gold and silver has not increased in proportion, but the con traryi The mines of PerU'and Mexi 1cr. which before IS10 yielded about $50,000,000 annually, how yield Jess than ' S15.000.000.1 The falling off thus caused In the quantity of pre cioiis metals received , in England from IclO to 1840, was not less than seven hundred and fifty millions -of dollars, ftor was this decrease fully compensated, though It'was partial ly, by the yield of the Russinn mines, that Vield not having exceeded biu, 000.000 a vear. And all the while the United' States was doubling' its populalian every twenty five years, Russia and Great Britain every forly years, and so on. Thus it is evident that but for the discovery of the gold of California, a money-famine most soon have arisen, causing a universal fall in prices, in the reward of labor, the doubling of and a fatsl increase in the weight of debts and taxes and in the value and power of wealth. Of course, such a famine would be most severely felt in densely popula ted manufacturing countries like England, France and Belgium. It may perhaps be doubted whether England could have survived it, so great is the burden nf her national debt and so severely has she already felt the operations to which her cur rency has been subjected. Jjven now after thirty years of peace, her taxes are about twice as heavy as in ISI5, after twenty years ofn costly war, and so of mortgages, bonds and Other debt. .. : And in England during this time, a powerful interest has constantly been laboring to reduce the currency as nearly as possible to the ' amount of bullion on hand. In 1819 the Currency Restriction Act, introduc ed and carried through Parliament by Sir Robert Peel, reduced the pa per money in the Kingdom from three hundred millions ol dollars to half that sum, where it has since re mained. This was one of the most disastrous measures in the history of legislation. It halved the price of land, labor and merchandise, doub led the value ol money and burdens of debt and taxes, arid has hung like an incubus upon the country ever since, reducing the masses to slavery, and benefiting nobody but stock-jobbers and money-lenders. . At this crisis, when everything is suffering from the contraction of the circulating medium, ihe Anglo-Saxon race obtain California, and in three months discover the gold which the Spanish owners, though in pos session for three or four centuries, had failed to discern. The Califor nia mines mav be. relied on to sup ply 90,000,000. during the year 1551. And supposing 100,000 labo rers to be constantly engaged in mi ning. .It would take above four hun dred years to exhaust, the gold re gion, or, il this . bq above the mark, it is certain that it cannot be exhaus ted for generations to eome. - And the yield will, no doubt, constantly increase as mining is carried on more scientifically and with machinery ad equate to : crush the go 1J-bearing rock. .Thus nature has provided an abun dant supply nf gold and interposed a barrier to the disasters which the folly and mistakes of legislators were hastening-upon the world, ibis is her Act for the Extension of the Currency egainst w hich the bullion- ists, who would restrict the amount ol monev, will strive in vain. The great ; monetary revolution of 'the sixteenth century, consequent upon the Spanish discoveries in America, from which the prosperity and im provements of subsequent , ages date their rise, will now be repealed. The value of money . will fall, and the price of. labor and its products will rise; taxes; will be less, 4ebts will be easier paid, and new activity will be exhibited in every sphere of life, -"Still, in the opinion of . the writer, the nohVof Cahlornia was jiot ab solutely needed to avert the speeding ruin. : And here he agrees with some of the- extremest radicals of ,tor ac quaintance.

This document abounds in observations upon vices and follies of his fellow-men, and in culcates the necessity of cultivating a higher feeling of justice and phi lanthropy among men. He censures trongly the hostility and prejudice of the poor against the rich, and gives several instances in which this feeling was excited, against him in soils tried before juries. He refers particularly to one case, in which he brought suit against ' a rich widow lady, whose Husband's notes he (Mc Donogh) had cashed in his lifetime, to assist that husband out of some embarrassment. The widow refused to pay the notes, and McDonogh brought suit. The case came before a jury ar,d the lawyer of the defen dant, who had .no legal defence against the note, appealed to the prejudices of the jury and her orphan children, against the exactions of the avaricious millionaire, John McDon ogh. TJie appeal was, but too suc cessful. The jury , returned a ver dict lor about ten 5er cent.' on the face of the note, "and thus" exclaims Mr." McDonogh, I'was l deprived of my just dues, because by perseve rance .and industry, I had accumu lated wealth.''. "But these jurors in thus permitting me to be robbed, little knew that they were robbing themselves and . their children." And so it has proved, and the old man had his revenge. A1 O.

And physicians too who have gone into the practice of medicine as a mat ter of speculation, without having spent year of their lives in study without the proof of their industry and capncl ty in the form of a diploma from some regularly chartered institution should be looked to by the public, and nut down by the law. We like the laws of Europe upon this subject, and, like those people, we will find ourselves ne cessitated to enact similar ones, in or der to protect ourselves from the impo sition and ignorance of a set of men. who have no hesitation to kill, should the business paV. .We hope our legislature will enact laws sufficiently stringent to prevent physicians from practicing, or apothe caries from compounding prescriptions, unless they shall have graduatea ai some regularly charterel institution. : Bj this means an immense amount of human life will be saved, and these professions will take an honorable stand, which they never can till these laws are I pnnc.tpH. At nresent the practice ol medicine, and the compounding of med icine, are carried on principally by per sons wholly Incompetent for the busi ness.
