It is very much the fashion of late years to expatiate on the sanc tity of national debts. All the newspapers published in the cen ter* ot capital devote a considera ble spies to this well worn mono tone, and the reason is a very sim ple oue. Most ot their patronage Is derived from the class who own bonds and other svidsoces of pub llo debt, and they write what will be most agreeable to tbeir patrons. A man may very much question either the sanctity or the desira bility of national, Stale and other forms of public indebtedness with out ranging himself among tbe revolutionists of the Anachsrsls Cloolz school. Such men as Thom as Jefferson regarded such debts, and the accumulation of capital iv few hands which always follow upon tbeir heels, as subtle agencies for tbs enslaving of the masses. A well-wisher of his kind may well question whether the destruction of national credit—the establish ment of a state of things which would make It impossible for a State or nation to get into debt would not, after all, be a blessing. It would Involve temporary hard ship and inconvenience, but then, j when peoples as well as iudividu ■ als bavo to pinch themselves, they / are moderate ia their expenditures. ' They count the cost very carefully, knowing that they themselves will bave to pay the scot. The best and clearest thinkers that have ever lived lv tho United States have doubted the ability of one generation to bind another. Owing to ths fact tbat aggregat ed money, In the last fifty years, has become even a greater power than the old Holy Alliance, na tional debts have become a sort of modern fetish. And yet nothing can be more thoroughly proven thau that nations have disposed of their national debts as the humor happened to seizo them. The must striking thing about it all is, however, that their credit has uot suffered in the slightest degree, in consequeuce. Who cares to inquire now what France did with her Revolution ary debt? But it may be snid that that debt was to her own people, and that she oould do with it what she pleased. This argument may be met by oue from our own his tory. When tbe American Cou gress decreed that the Continental debt should be settled on the basis of one silver dollar to every forty of the Continental issue—that is, when we compounded on the foot ing of paying our creditors a debt of a peculiarly sacred nature at the rate of two aud a half cents on the dollar, the Freuoh creditors pro tested. They pointed to the fact that they had aided our people in what would be a most momeutous and critical period of the history of any nation, aud they suggested " 'that; however we might elect to treat our own citizens, we should at leiist pay French creditors dollar for dollar. The American Congress replied that it could not consent to recoguize auy distinction amongst its creditors, and it declined to pre fer the French over Ihe American money-lender. When oue luoks baok over the whole Held, tbat seems a harsh and unjust discrimination. Yet the credit of tbe United States is to-day not any the worse for it—perhaps more's the pity. The House of Representatives, day before yesterday, by a more than two-thirds vote, passed the Stanley Matthews resolution de claring that the interest en the Natioual debt was rightfully payable iv sliver, ut tbe option of the Goverumsu t. We do not pretend to say that this action will have tbo effect of in creasing tbe value of silver. We disclaim auy knowledge of the ul timate results. There may be a resentful conspiracy amougst cap italists, iv consequence, to depress the value of silver, but it will prob ably fail in ths end, if it is at tempted. If ths balance of trade were against us it might result iv denuding tha country of gold. But United States bonds still remain a good Investment, and we cau sus tain the shock| if a few hundred millions of government bonds are returned upon our hand*. We cau pay them in silver and that ought to create a demand for silver colu, and check any movement of the kind, besides. If the gamehiuted at were attempted, like a two edged sword, it would cut both ways. It is a flue thing to do right though the heavens fall. Oarfleld's resolution declaring that the prin cipal and interest of the publicdebt were payable in gold coin only waa an infamy which should be recti fied at whatever cost, it was a lie and a betrayal of the masses who pay the taxes. As the demoneti zation of silver lv Germany was the primary cause of the appalling fall in the value of that metal, we are not without hope, though we have our doubts of it, that its re monetization by the United Slates will restore its value to par. The Ban Francisco oironicle thinks the capital of the United States should be looated consider ably west of its present site. It believes that then the wauts of the great west would receive more at tention from Cougress than they de now. We agree with the Chron icle. We think, further, tbat the capital of the Statu of California should be located south of Sacra mento. In that event we are in clined to believe that tbe interests of the southern section of this State would receive, occasionally, at least an oblique attention. By the way, while ou this subjeot, we would suggest to the Southern Cal ifornia members of the Legisla ture that a State Normal School, au Insane Asylum, a Penitentiary, and other institutions, built and maintained by the State, would look remarkably well perched somewhere in Southern California. Ground for such purposes immedi ately aligning the bay is becoming both scarce and dear. The preseut legislature should take a new de parture aud glf« Southern Califor nia a show. Wi regard the antl-aubeidy vote of the House of Representatives, day before yesterday, as the knell of the Texas-Pacific guarantee. It is true that the friends of the Scott measure claim that the guarantee ie not a subsidy, but this is a nice distinction to which people who are not Interested iv the success of Soott give little heed. It really seems as if tlie guarantee were weaker In the present Congress than In the last. The anti-subsidy resolution was passed by a vote largely over two-thirds. The measure has had iv Washington, even iv advance of the assembling of Cougress, a powerful, zealous and persevering lobby. Should it fail to receive Congressional aid now it will have to rely entirely upou private enterprise to get itself built. The euergy with which the guarantee has beeu pressed is probably a gauge of tho necessity of legislation to the accomplish ment of Scott's plans. Already, our dispatches in form us, the resentful moneyed classes are sending up tlie premium on gold, following on the passage of the Matthews resolution. United States bonds have fallen off a frac tion iv London. Well, iftheydou't like them over there let tbeiu send the bonds home aud we'll pay them oil in silveras loug as it lasts. "Are you there, old Truepenny?" We rather think we have the bloated gentry at a disadvan tage, so to speak. Perhaps it would'u't hurt the country, after all, if the idea should get abroad that investment in Government bends is not the best thing uuder the sun. Enterprises which have languished to long might theu be vitalized. Reliance upou the In come derivable from a publicdebt is, for the country at largo, the sleep of death. Should a genuine remonetlza tiou of silver result from the ac complished and meditated legisla tion ofthe preseut Congress it will prove to be a great boon to the peo ple of Los Angeles. Very few of our business men receive anything but silver iv their daily transac tions, while all remittances to San Francisco must be made in gold coin. This has proved a most op pressive tax —at one time a fairly intolerable one—upon our business men. The Pacific, Coast, tbe great silver producer, will, of all sections, be the most beneßted if the pro silver legislation ha* the effeots it* advocate* claim for it. Bum Butlkr—strabismic Ben- Ben whose gleaming oook-eye riv eted on the beholder is suggestive of quest for some oue urouud the corner—has never got over his early Democratic "bringing up." He tells tbe capitalists that they had better take the Bland silver bill iv good part aud make the most of it. Butler is right. It is sometimes inexpedient to ask too much. A too arbitrary demand sometimes p Is like a boomerang. LAST NIGHT'S NEWS. IHpselal to tbe Herald by tlie Western (Julon Telegraph Company.l Pacific Coast News. I'blMMuarH iv jueiaauii East San Francisco, Jen. 29th.— Contractors iv tbe East are mak ing arrangements to take a small portion, of Chinatown oft' our bauds.

They have approximated to a settlement and hope at the meeting to-morrow to settle the matter. The mass meeting in favor of the remouetization of silver, which was to have beeu held to-morrow night, lia9 been postponed until Friday evening iv order to accom modate some Senators and Con gressmen who could not leave Washington to-morrow. SUiiuic Bull ■•111 lv iiiaami. Helena, Montßßßi Jau. £9tli. — Tlie Independent publishes the fol lowing: Major Walsh, of tha Northwest Mounted Police, com mandant of Fort Walsh, Canada, near which Sitting Bull and other hostile Indlaus are now located, ar rived in Helena to-day, eight days out from Fort Walsh. When Maj. Walsh left, Sitting Bull, Little Knife and fifty-live lodges were at tlie east end police post, Cypress Mountains, where they intend to remain during the Winter. The night before leaving Maj. Walsh received a message fiom Sitting Bull sayiug that hs had heard that tbe Americans were coming to tight him and disturd his peace; that they were tired of blood and would move nearer to tbe past. He desired Major Walsh to spsak to the White Mother for him. Spotted Eagle sent him a message at the same time, saying be was awaiting the arrival of 100 lodges of his people, who ware coming from the Spotted Tail Agency; that if they would obey the requirements of Major Walsh they could remain with him, and if not they must go by, and he, too, would move to Cypress Mountains. It is not improbable that these latter are tbo Indians reported to General Miles. Msjor Walsh says tbat at no time since his arrival has Sitting Bull's camp crossed ths line to American soil, as be has received daily messages from hjm since tho Terry Commis sion returned. Tbeir movement across the ims without his knowl edge would be impossible, aud he would promptly advise General Gibbsn in ibut event. The Sioux camp is now scattered. Spotted Eagfe, with 100 lodges, is at Pinto Butte, and the others are scattered along the White Mud river and iv tbe Food Mountains, where buffalo are plenty. Their condition is irre consilable with warlike intentions. Colonel MacLeod, commander of mounted police, is here, and cor roborates the above. No credence is attached to the rumor that Sit ting Bull bas crossed the line. Major Walsh's statements are deemed iv tbe highest degree trustworthy. (outran tee Kcporte. Washinoton, Jan. 2'Jth. —The Senate Finance Committee to-day authorized Senator Allison to offer with its sanction, as au amend ment to the silver bill, his provis ion for an international money conference to fix a common ratio of value to gold and silver. The deteimination of this ratio is not, however, a condition precedent to the provisions of the bill. Ou the coutrary, the bill, if enacted, goes into effect immediately and the confereace, if agreed to, will be held subsequently. Ths House Committee on Bank ing has agreed to recommend the passage of a hill discontinuing tbe coinage of twenty oeut pieoes. Ths House Naval Affairs Com mute has decided to report ad versely upon ths claims of Secor & Company, Nathaniel McKay, Perrine, Seoor & Co., for extra compensation for building steam rams, etc. Washinoton, Jan. 29th.—Sena tor Sargent to-day, in csnversation with your correspondent, suggested tbat tbs California Legislature should do something to protect Cal ifornia from the grasp of the Chi nese by amending section 6671 of tbe Code so as to provide that an alien, debarred by treaty from citi zenship, shall not acquire title in fee to real property, or so as to pro vide that no alien shall acquire It. This latter provision is the law iv New York. Sargent remarked that, during the lata war, aliens holding real property gave muoh trouble by continually apply iag to their Ministers to Interfere in our mods of taxing such property, olaimlng, in ana instance, at least, that the Queen of Great Britain should protect a British subject from being taxed on an iasue in which he had no coueern. The Senator thinks tlieexample of New York should be followed in pro tecting-the coil .of the State from seizure by Chinese, aud says their recent threats to ruin the busiuess of a California Congressman be cause hi* official aotiou does not suit them, shows a growing inso lence whioh should stimulate the friends of civslization in California to still more earnest efforts for their exclusion. Meaty Liabilities—Neutlual Assete. New York, January 29th.—The schedule of E. J. Dunning, Jr., a Wall street dealer in commercial paper, who has made an assign ment for the benefit of his credit ors, was filed to-day. Liabilities, $1,854,000. His asset* consist mainly of notes of nominal value. COHHBEIHIOHAL. Washinoton, Jan. 29.—Senate. Kdmunds' resolution inatructing the Military Committee to report whet her, sinoe July 28th, 1868, auy person has been appointed to the urmy contrary to tlie act of tbat date or contrary lo section 1218, re vised statutes. Agreed to. lieck iv introducing his resolu tion agaiust au appropriation for the Sinking fuud, said he wauted au expression from both bouses re garding tbe important question of reducing oppressive taxation and yet supporting tlie government. He thought ho could show bow thirty millions could be saved from the Customs service, Internal Revenue and ladian management, but at present he would only con sider the Sinking fund. Tbe Sec retary of the Treasury had said there would bo a deficiency of over eleven millions at the end of the next fiscal year in the Govern ment's receipts; also, that the Sinking fund contains $220,000,000 more tliau it requires, and govern ment had practically fulfilled all its pledges for ths Sinking fund. Wherefore so anxious to pay bonds now? The public creditors are not suffering, the property of the United States is growing more valuable and the public debt is a mortgage ou il. The Sinking fund was provided for at least five years in advauoe, and now Congress should re lure taxation. Had Con gress been in formed of tbs condi tion of the Sinking fund it would never havo passed the act of March 3J, U75, to protect the Siuking fuud and increase taxes. The Treasury offloials had grossly de ceived Dawes, who controlled that bill. Morrill and Dawes said they would speak on this resolution hereafter. Wallace said gold can't be so di vided as to suit all classes of people while silver can. With both metals there is industry, eoonomy, plenty; with only one, depression, ruin and idleness. There is no foundation in minerals or law for enhancing the value of the publio debt. Justice and expediency op pose it. The restoratiou of the an cient gold and silver circulation was a safe compromise between tbe two factious. He declared that remonetization would Increase tlie value of silver according to the eternal laws of demand and supply. He continued at some length and Bayard theu took tbe floor and said ho did not favor abolishing silver as the coin of the oountry and he would, if the business of tbe country would not be disturbed thereby, favor restoriug silver as money. This bill practically al lowed the owner of silver to take it to the mint, have it stamped and raised teu per cent. In value, while the owner of gold secured no beueflt from the stamping. Oordou presented resolutions of a meeting at Rome, Oa., favoring remonetizatiou and tlie repeal of the resumption aot. Dawss opposed tho silver bill, declaring it a oheating, delusive inilatiou scheme, whicli would fos ter idleness and distrust and drive capital into security aud shelter. He declared tbe speotacle presented by this young country of trying to pay its debts in money cheaper than that borrowed, involved the destruction of the national credit and humiliation and disgrace. White opposed the bill. Cameron, of Wisconsin, sub milted an amendment making the silver dollar contain four hundred and twenty grains. Ordered printed. Buruside submitted an amend ment makiug the silver dollar a legal dollar for all debts not over $500. Ordered printed. Tho Vice-President presented re ports of tile Indian Commissioner in answer to Senate resolution of tlie 10th, regarding payments to Indians. House —A resolution was adopted excluding from the floor all exoept members of Congress aud declaring that ex-members, before they could be admitted, must tile a declaration that they were not in terested in pending legislation. The rule excludes employes com mittee clerks aud private secreta ries. The bill from the Committee on Commerce, recognizing tlio Wood ruff aolentific expedition round ths world, was passed by a vote of IST to 100. Adjourned. afeaeler Temperance Petition — Contest Between Hichsidita aa l Salary — lite Veiiesualaa Awards. Washinoton, January 20.—The Committee of the Woman's Na tional Christian Temperance Un ion are here with a temperance pe tition representing 23 Htates aud including 300,000 name*. The Preaideut ha* sent the fol lowing nominations to tbe Senate: Charles R. Coster, of New York, Pension Agent at New York city; K. Salamon, sf Missouri, U. S. Sur veyor General for Utah; Nathan C. Meeker, of Colorado, Indian Ageut at While River Agency. Ths Sub-Committee of the House Committee on Elections to-day heard further arguments in the South Carolina contests I case of Richardson vs Rainey. The sub- Committee will probably report thsre was no eltotion. Wm. Pile, formerly U. S. Minis ter to Venezuela, appeared to-day before the Senato Committee ou Foreign Affairs aa counsel for the Venezuelan Qovernment and other parlies interested and was beard in advocacy of the bill providing for the aunullnsent of tbe awards of Mixed Commission of 1863 and for a new Commission to rehear the claims passed upon by ths Ml zed Commission and suob otber claims as may be presented. Pile charged that the ast* of the Mixed Commis sion were tainted with fraud from its creation. Interview wltb Ucuerni Crook, Omaha, Jan. 29th—Osusral Crook left last night for tbs Indian Territory on ' business' connected with Indian a Hairs. In an inter view before leaviug, he said, among otber things, lhat iv his opinion it would be difficult to maintain peace on tbe northern border and ou the upper Missouri aud Yellowstone. Hitting Bull could uot long remain on Britieh soil, becauie the English thar* bave nothing to supply the Indians with and tbe eoareity of buffalo makes it necessary for Indians to follow the buffale to its aceuatomed stamping ground, which is in United States territorry. Whenever Sitting Bull and bi* Indians come dewu that far, there will be more or less com munication between them aud other Indians and, consequently, there will be more or less trouble. Tbe decrease of buffalo is ■o rapid that the Indians will soon havo to Mud tome otber means of subsistence, and this will even tually compel them to rely ou the government or toe un in it depreda tions. In his opinion over 100,000 buffaloes have beeu slaughtered every year for the past ten years aud the natural increase is very much less than this. Tbe largest portion of tho buffaloes killed are cows, aud this rate of decrease in females renders tho final extinc tion ofthe buffalo inevitable. Oan. Crook thought it would be utterly impossible to prevent Witting Bull from crossing tbe bordor into tbe United States, as there were 500 miles ot unprotected territory. There are troops ou Tougue river, the Yellowstone and Upper Missouri and there is uo doubt that they can do much toward* chocking tho In diana from committiug any serious depredations; still there will always be in that upper country more or lessdauger until Sitting Bull is cleaned out. Tho Agency Indians will have uo communication with Sitting Bull's forces when they come down. European Cable News. Wo tiro,, M.l f.r Urlil.li lulerler oi.ee.

Iv tbe House of Commons to-day, Sir Stafford Northcote urged a vote for supplementary ■uppli** to give the Congress of Nations to understand that Eng land is prepared for any emergency, as the question of tho Dardanelles cannot be settled between Russia aud Turkey. I Ivll War Imminent lv Ureeee. Athens, Jau. 29(h. —It is said that Gravaia, ex-Minister, Is or ganizing a revolution or civil war and it is feared there may be much bloodshed. The Chamber bas passed an almost unani mous vote approving therepiessive measures of the Government. Mltecnlatlons ne to Kneala*e course. Vienna, Jan. 29th.—Among the rumors current is one that uo reg ular armistice will be concluded, but that immediately after the ar rival of Grand Duke Nicholas with the Plenipotentiaries aud General Ignatieff lv Adrianople, definite peace negotiations will be entered into on tbe bads of the prelimina ries accepted by the Porte. This is uot improbable, as the preliminary questions are so general and elastic that they will only receive real significance by definition ia the flual peace instrument. They may be made infinitely harder than al ready announced or else softened down so a* to leave Turkey tbe semblance of existence aa an Eu ropean Power. He would be a bold man who would now venture to affirm what will ultimately belt suit the purposes of Russia; wheth er she will aim at a radical solu tion or merely prepare the way fur it. Much will doubtless depend on the course of tbe pour-parlers with Individual powers, which seems to be going on simultaneously with tbe negotiations with Turkey. Whether Russia may think it more advantageous to crush Turkey or protect her, an armistice with a fixed date would certainly be more in the way than a sort of tacit sus pension of hostilities. which seems, for the moment, to exist, but which Russia may put an end to auy moment she likes.
