We bare not partlsaulzed this measure on
either side for tho reason that it Is our de
sire that the wisest and best course toward
the business Interests of the country shall
be pursued. It is desirable that the ucs
tlon of resumption shall be scttleel at the
earliest possible moment with safety to our
national credit. The business interest of
the people are held in tearful stupm-v by
this question. The doubt as to whether it
ball come Ht the time named by Uw, or
earlier, or later, has n depressing cflet ujKm
trade, commerce, and manufacture, tor
nterpriw has not the courage to
fftartout on more extended paths until the

one hundred millions of coiu in the Treasury
vault, to meet this exigency when it shall
come, withdraws and withholds to that ex
tent this important ekment to bu'diir
This money would be let loo-o if reunii

The Government of the United Htateahas
to-day, unless we are mistaken, a larger per
eentage of coin in relation to its p.iper than
tho Bank of England has had for years.
This coin i now shut out from use, und Is
of no more value to the buiiueis Interests
of the tountry than so many pounds of pig
iron. It Is Important, therefore, that this
Urge amount of money slrould go forth to
useful now, instead of remaining hidden iu
the vaults of the Treasury; and we enter
tain the conviction that tho passage of the
liver bill would place the country In pos
mion of ioiu,or the representative thereof,
to fortify the Government agnitut any do
mand for redemption that would arise, If
resumption should lie attempted imme
diately after the coinage of silver was torn
me need and became a factor In our par cir
culation. With the small margin existing
between gold and piper to-day, the experi
ment of resumption is not hazardous, and
the sooner it is attempted the sooner the
dread of iU consequences will be over. The
shock that Is so much apprehended will not
be perceptible, and confidence and hope will
be restored to the marts of business and
trade quite speedily. It is the fear of con
sequences that now disturbs the avenues of
enterprise and circumscribes its limits.
The South ou Nenator Morion.
The public life of a public man Is a proper
subject foreriticlsm. ThUlsall tliattheftnitu
has don in the cane of Morton. It was a
right and a duty. It violated none of the pro
prieties of human conduit. If the South had
rejoiced that a Larerr ic full of injury mud Iu-
tustice tuber had ccasel, who would have
lamed her? But she did not. Hit journals
simply criticised his public career and left his

The above Is guttered in defense of the
bitter, und In some instances le.istly, as
saults made by the Southern press upon the
memory of Si nator Mortov since his de

great war Governor of ludlana, and latet
Benator, was a career full of injury and in

Alter Senator Mom ON entered the Senate
of the United States, he invariably iusieted
that the South should respect and observe the
terms and law u of reconstruction. He never
demanded more at tho hands of the South
ern people, uor would be consent to accept
less. He denounced, as every humane per
son everywhere has done, tho brutalities
and outrages practiced at the South to se
cure political control of the late Insurgent
Atntcs in the bands of the Democratic,
which is numerically the minority, part(v in
that sect ton. He opponcd these oflVnvs
upon patriotic and philanthropic premises,
and though bis utterances may have
rung tnharmoniously in the ears of

who are only playing the hvpwrlte when
they pretend to n icpect fur the Union mid
Constitution which they failed to destroy by
an appeal to arms. This hypocrisy is dally
cxnsed in the tone and temper of the
South by their assaults upon the noble men
who stood firmly by the mine of the Union
during the war, and who have cluce de
manded tint the terms of the peace that en
sued shall be obsened bj those who viclded
to it ostensibly in good faith.
We ran say to the Chroniitf, or any other
journal or citizen of the South, that the
peopleof the North have no tUMrc for nnj
other than relations of amity with those of
the South; but they will uot remain rllcnt
when every important principle that hlngts
upon this peace is violated by the action of
the Southern people. All that Is required
Is that the terms of the settlement of our
past difliuiltles shall be olwrvcd. The
rights of eerycitiren in the South, Irre
spective of birth, color, or distinction
iu life, must bo respected, to doe the
mouth of criticism and protest nt
tho North. When that end Is reached,
there will be no sectional lines, no cause of
difference or unfriendliness of feeling Hut
every infraction of the principle of right
nnd justice on the part of tho South will be
met with such terms nud In stub spirit ns

As a recognition of the services so oppor
tunely rendered, Trusident MacMahov, in
July last, awarded Ment. ToIKR a gold
medal, which he cannot receive without the
permission of Congress.

oars that she has held the inland of St.

CuiCiciu still rotuins its title of the wlek

7 iw-publishes a list of fifteen banks-and
cigliteen Insurance companies which, It says,
"havo burst in Chicago within a few yeirs,
and which were proved by an examination of
their remains to have been little littler than
swindles." Amoug the banks It mentions the
Franklin, which could not pay ten per cent ,
the Bank of Chicago, with liabilities about one
third of a million aud assets nothing; the
Btate-streot Savings Bauk, with liabilities
$10,000 aud aiwets $), and so ou through the
list. The insurance conpanies make no better
skew, the highest dividend uaeutloned being ,
sixteen per cent., the lowest nothing. The
Ttmrt is certainly Justified in calling this a
"shameful record." The worst feature of It is
that no one has been held responsible for the
frauds unquestionably committed In connec
tion with tliese corporations.

On Monday last the November term of the
Circuit Court for Charleston County was opened
with a charge to the grand Jury by judge
Thompson II. Cooke. After tho usual general
instructions upon their duty, the Judge called
the attention of the grand Jury to the fact that
there were many idlo negroes In tho county,
and urged tho application of the old ante-bet

The Itess English Opera Company will give
the tost performances of an altogether too brief
season this afternoon and evening.
That sparkling work, 'Tho Chimes of Nor
mandy," will bo given for the matinee, and at
night Auber's always welcome oera "Fra
Dlarolo." Both announcements will no doubt
be highly ncceptablo to the public.
It Is a matter of regret that this fine com
pany could not remain another week. Tho
attcndance.whlch commenced only moderately,
In consequence of a degree of uncertainty on
the part of the public as to the strength of the
new company and the attractions offered In
the new repertoire, has steadily Increased, until
?;ood scats havo become scarce unless applied
or at an early hour.
Ro good an impression as Mr, Hess has made
here during his brief visit has rarely been
equalled, and, as a natural consequence, the
oarly return of his brilliant and finely organized
company willboanxlously looked for, "Chimes
of Normandy" at the matinee, and "Fra
Dlavolo " to night.

Tills wonderful songstress and charming
young lady, who Is now tho sensation In
musical circles, has been engaged by Mr. C. 1.
Hess for a concert tour, and will appear at
Lincoln Hall In tlds city ou the evenings of
Monday and Tuesday, November CO and 37.
The last concert was originally announced for
Wednesday, but Mr. Hess has, for prudential
reasons, concluded to give them both on con
secutive nights. Thcso entertainments will be
tho most enjoyable to the cultured musical
class of anything wo are likely to havo this
seoion, for, beside the opportunity afforded to
listen to this most wonderful )oung eunta
trice, the public w 111 enjoy the prlv I
lege of bearing the exquisite v oiccs
of Mass end Carle ton, and of witnessing the
performances of the great pianist, Mr, H. G.
Watt, who has recently edcctrlfied New York
AthlsChickcrlng Ilsll recitals. The contralto
of tho troupe Is Mi Anna Beeve.a young New
York lady, whoso singing Is highly commend
ed. Tho company will apiear in Now York,
Brooklyn, aud Baltimore next week. Mr, Wvm
has shown excellent judgment In offering the
strongestattracttonsat moderateprlces. Every
iHhly can aQord to go and hoar the great
Tltratre Comlque.
There will be a matinee this afternoon, and
a grand performance to-night, closing a very
successful week fur the management, as well
as the numerous novelty artists engaged at
this very topular place of resort. There will
lie a full bill of attractions next week, and we
are sure that contiuued success will follow the
endeavors of the management to please the
numerous patrons of the Comlque.
More Policy Nytnptoms.
FREDRRKkSBURO, A., NoV.ll. 1877.
The splendid policy of our excellent Presi
dent was a grand aud magnificent failure to
far as tlds county was concerned. The regu
lar conservative ticket, bolstered by Hon. Elli
ott M, Braxton, who received His Excellency
on tho occasion of his passage through here on
his way to Richmond, is defeated by about l.V)
majoilty; this, too, In A county which lias
given as much as (00 majority. Braxton and
lesser lights made their dying effort the night
before election, and although he told the people
that night what an admirer of Mr. llsyes he
was, they did not forget the outrageous speech
he had made here a few months ago, when ho
denounced the Government and all in au
thority as bloody usurpers who had trampled
upou the rights of tho South. Mr. Hayes may
learn from the result of thetltctloti here how
his policy Is regarded, and In what esteem the
gentleman is held who willingly accepted the
honor of welcoming him, who but a short time
ago was so hoartlly despised by Mr. B. and his
to i lowers.
The gentleman elected to the Legislature
from this county Is a Conservative of lilieral
views, and has voted In tiroes past for Repub
licans. We could havo as cosily elected a Re
publican as the gentleman who was chosen;
but, impressed with tho Idea that tho Presi
dent's policy In tho South Is to make no fight
against the opposition, we concluded to gHo It
a fair trial and hold aloof from making any
regular fight. Out of a voting strength of
100.000 In Virginia the vote of tho Republican
party will not be, iu my judgment, equal to
85,000 tho result of the present pollcv. For
tho future It will be less unless "inv policy" un
dergoes a change REPUBLICAN.
As a funeral cortege was making its way
along ttmcrowded streets the other day, a
boot black called to a companion:
"Hey, Jack, what big gun is dead nowt"
"Taln't no rich folks," replied Jack as ho
looked down thu street.
" 'Taln't, eh I Well, Just look at them twenty-eight
backs I"
" That's what I was looking at that's how
I know It's some common man. Rith folks
don't koer what folks say, but poor folks box
big funeral processions to deceive tho public".
