Bothered EaUirely.
The North American, the leading commer
cial journal of Philadelphia, which from the
start has favored " Secretary Chase's money
scheme, is guilty of the. lollowing precious
piece of wisdom :
'The inflation of the -value of specie is
reaching such a point' as to demand some ac
tive measures to provide a remedy. Everybody
is cramped so much for small change as to be
bothered, on all occasions to transact the ordi
nary purchases of every-day life. The move
ment appears to be a steadily progressive one.
Gold v. as first driven out of circulation by the
premium on it f then silver get into demand,
grew scarce, And went up until it disappeared
from common use, as far as possible, and now
even nickels are held at a premium, as though
some new and extraordinary value had been
found in them. What causes this premium
on nickels ? They are not exported. They
are only of use at home. They are not valued
for hoarding. And yet the panic-mongers
have driven theni up to three or four per cent,
premium. There never was a more causeless
or ridiculous inliation than thin, and yet what
can we do to put a stop to it ?"
"Who ever saw ' inflated' gold or nickel?
The thing is preposterous. A Philadelphia
editor, if not a lawyer, ought to understafld
that gold and silver are the standard of values
the world over, and thaUwhen men say they
are at a premium, they mean that currency is
at a discount. ; . s ,. . " , v '. t
liut, continues this befogged journalist :
" If the export of specie furnishes any ground
for this panic, let the Government either pro.

such an export duty on specie as will effectual
ly cnecic tne movement."
In this recommendation the North American
is of course not trrare that U is proposing na
tional repudiation of our debts in its most of
fensive form ; yet such is the fact. The pre
cious metals are the only currency known be
tween nations, and to prohibit their export is
to say debt obligations with other countries
shall not be met,. It would be followed by
war with all the naval powers of Europe for
the recovery of their just dues. Another ob
j action to this scheme is, that it is nnconstitu-
tional to levy export duties.

" 'Greater love hath no man than this, that
