IITT Air experiment! oolnaae of golold will bo nude at the mint, under a call from the IIoom Com id It too on Coinage, at an early day, sufficient to farnfoh each .Senator and Keprcscntfttive with a specimen of the dol lar. half, and quarter dollar. Thla la i sew metal, composed of silver, cold, and copper of such density of character that tt Till resist the wear of handling, and defy the action of muriatic acid. Tho saving in the wear of $100,000,000 will be $300,000 annually over that of silver, and a large percentage on sold, and hence so much would be saved to the Government or the people annually on that amount It also approximates in intrinsic value more closely to gold than any other metal now known, and preserves its equilibrium in the scale of the precious metals. This lathe claim set up for it by Its advocates. The Silver Question The discussions that have followed In the 'Areas and on the forum since the introduction of s msasure In Congress for the remonetixa tlon of silver and Its Introduction as a fac tor in our coin circulation has brought to tho surface a distinct and energetic division of sentiment among buiiness and financial operators throughout the country. This division presents two distinct classes, and perhaps three, who reason from their re-irpo&Hk- standpoints. The rich money changers and fcoUkrV'bf Government securi ties are hostile to the rcmoneticlng of silver, lor the reason that its Introduction as a par circulating medium will tend to bring the speculative value of gold down to Its real - mcuue, increase the volume of our coin circu lation, give fresh hope and encouragement to enterprise, relieve tho necessities for money bow existing in business circles, and tear away from the business interests of the ountry the grasp that a scanty circulation and tho gold power has upon them. This consummation the gold speculator and bondholder dread and resist with nil the power they can bring to the work through the agencies of prejudice and a subsidized press. On the other hand, the business people want silver and resumption, and especially they desire that silver shall Ikj rcmonetiied, Sbr the reason that they confidently believe that this alono affords a guarantee of early and permanent resumption. Everywhere, utalde the money centres, the business men Who reflect candidly upon the present finan cial condition of th country, and desire a emedy, sco no other door of escape from the ills that beset them except through a law that will remonetizo silver and make its coin a legal tender in the payment of debts due to the Government and indi viduals. To this may bo added, also, tho greenback policy, which will place the Gov ernment's promises to pay on a par with liver and gold. The odTocutca of the gold standard and A limited par circulating medium are ex ceedingly intolerant, censorious, and de nunciatory of those who disagree with them in opinion on tho money question, There is no advocate of reraonetizfng silver who, if he believed that wrong is to be done to any public or private auditor, or that the public credit is to be iir ilred by it. would not abandon the m east re at once nnd thus avert such consequences. They are- as jeal ous of the public faith nnd wclfire as any gold operator or bond-holder or banker in the land. They know that the public wel fare and the busincs interests of the country will be promoted by the consum mation of the siher measure. They are confident that resumption will be aided, hastened and made perma nent by it An 1, nctlng upon this conviction. which Is as honest as that of any opponent of the measure, the siher remonetizcrs beseech Congress and the Prcsldrnt to extend this helping hand to tho general business inter-1 cats of the nation. Very much has been said by the oppo nents of early resumption nnd silver rem on erization about the injustice that would re sult from the latter, nnd the dishonesty of paying the public credit In silver dollars containing 412 grains of standard silver. Tho usHcrtlons have been persistent that such coin is worth at present but nfnety cents, and that, too, in the face of the iact Unit such coin cannot be procured at any price ; and, further, that our subsidiary coin' ngo is worth more money, leads us to pro- pare the following statement, which we trust will dhow to any intelligent mind, not entirely beclouded with prejudice, the utter falsity of their assertions, as well as the folly or bul faith of (hone who, while they admit that silver should not hivo been demonetized, aud profcfM to be in favor of Its rcmonetization, are fearful that there U not enough silver In tho country to make a dollar largo enough to contain fair equivalent for a gold dolUr at least one large enough to satUty the demands of our foreign creditors. Let us look at this question In the light , of candor nnd truth. On the SOth instant, at noon, the selling price of gold Jn Wall street, New York, was 102J. The selling prtoe In gold of fine silver bullion was $1.17i per ounce. Tho selling price of the trade dollar In gold was 00710 cents, and that of our subsidiary stiver coin, such as half and quarter dollars of present .colnajn. was 0O.AO7 coots. The bullion value of trade dollars, the -old standard dol Jju, and of the subsidiary coinage in gold cola at the above rates, of gold an va)ae of I fine silver Is as follows : j3 I Trade dollars i W.M Standard dollar.... ,,k, ...tit90S Subsidiary eoliis ,;....... .,4Al From this it appears that the subsidiary dollar, which ts not a logal tender for any sum In excess of five dollars, and which con tains but 84 81 cents at gold rates, U actually worth 06.507 cents, or 11.087 cents mors thatTit should be according to th theories of the psntc-etricken worshippers of the golden calt It'also appears that even the trade dollar, which is not a legal tender for any sum, but is merely stamped bullion, Is worth 4.339 cents more than Its bullion va luebut as there is a coinage chargo of 1$ cents on each trade dollar, It Is but fair to deduct It therefrom, leaving the market value or the trade dollar over its bullion value 2389 cents. It also appear that the value of bullion In the standard dollar shore thai In the subsidiary dollar Is 5.87 cents. It Is fair, then, to assume that the dollar of 413 grains, If Ttmonetlced, would be worth at least as much as our subsidiary dollar, plus the extra jsilver, fl.02.4o7, or about the value of the same coin, when struck, surreptitiously or otherwise, from the list of standard coins. TVe 'do' not think that any candid, fair-minded personafler carefully considering this simple statement, will feel seriously alarmed at the deluge of foreign or domestic silver that la likely to pour in upon us, or at the prospect of a vio lation of publto faith, or the rubiof the public credit by increasing the volume qf our coin circulation and making the dollar of our fathers a par factor in the payment of our debts. Beware orHfaa-Trspil The Democrats appear to hare become suddenly alarmed over the political aspect of attain, lest In doing what was clearly right in the matter of Hew York Federal appointments, they may have Imparted some strength to the Bepubllcan side. To do right Is only spasmodic with that party, and when it discovers that it has been guilty of ajust act, It Is very liable to take alarm at the incident and do some foolish tiling to counteract It Whether by author ity or not, it Is not altogether certain, for we only have its word for it, but the puta tl e organ of the Democracy In this city has given "divine notice to Senator Coxklino and the rest of mankind that the Demo cratic Senators who voted with the Kepub cans to defeata direct violation of civil-ser vice rules in the cose of the New York ap pointments, have boon whipped back into the Democratic traces and will do so no more. Time will show whether or not the young men nre not a little too fust in this instance It is possible that they are out in adtanco of their lesson. It will not surprlso us If It shall turn out that this hasty declaration is an irrepressi ble whisper of what will yet be developed as a perfected arrangementunder which the Democrats think they are to take posses sion of tho Administration nnd its official pluuder. That his been tho aim of that party since it found that a deflection ex isted toward the President's policy, on tha part of Kepubllcans, nnd if they have suc ceeded it is far better for the Iiepublicnn cause than to ha e tho party blinded as to the real facts, and be groping in the future In doubt as to whether the Administration is or Is not to represent the Republican party and its principles In Its measures and poli cies. The mist will no doubt clear up cry soon now. The fog-horn has sent forth Its note of warning to its party. Grant on (911 cr. The Knnsas City Journal says : "There can bo no better evidence of tho coeit manner in which tho silver dollar w as dropped from the coinage, covered up in the mau of Re vised Statutes, contpofling a large volume, that had been revised by a commission that worked years on it, and which was ratified by passing Congress. Of course the Presi dent, in adding Ms approval, could uoft be expected to read It all, for no one con fd in ten days tho limit of the time the Pres ident can hold a MIL That he did not know of the trick is evident from the following letter, which he wrote during the panic to a gentleman of prominence In financial cir cles in New York." This is the letter: Washington, October 6. My Dkab Mb. Cowdkev: The panic has brought greenbacks about to a par with silver; I wonder that silver Is not already coming Into the market to supply tho deficiency in tho cir culating medium. Whcnitdoob come and I predict that it will be soon we will havcTmade a rapid striae toward specie payments, cur rency will never ko below siher after that The circulation of stiver will have other bene- ncial eiiL-cu. experience is proved tuat it takes about $40,000,000 of fractional currency to make the small rhanfeo necessary for the traasactlou oi ins businets or tue country. Sliver will gradually tako the place of this currency, and, further, will become the standard or vaiue, wuicn win oe soaruea in a small way. I estimate that this will consume from two to thrco hundred millions, lu time, of this species of our circulating medium. It will leave the paper currency free to perform the legitimate functions of trade, and will tend to bring us hack where we must anno at hut to a specie btutU I confess to a dcbiro to seoa limited hoarding of money. It Insures a firm foundation in time of noedt Bat I want to seo the hoarding of something that has a Btandard of valuo the world over. Hlherhas this, and if we once get bock to that our strides toward a higher appreciation of our currency will be rapjd. Our mines are now producing almost unlimited amounts of silver, and it fs becoming a question, "What shall we do with Ity" 1 suggest here a solution that will answer for some years, and suggest to you hankers whether you may not initiate it : To put It In circulation now, keep it there until It Is fixed, and then wo will find other markets. The Houth and Central American countries have anLcd us to coin their sliver for them There has never been authority of law to do so. I trubt it will now be given. When it Is given, it will be more than tho equiva lent of be omlnjc exporters of articles of manu facture which wero previously articles of im port Orders wilt come for largo amounts of coin. It will be all in silver, while payments are not neccsiiurlly so. We become tho manu facturer or tins currency wmi a prom, anu will probably secure a portion of our pay In tho more precious metal. U. S. Grant. "Among all the sllverodvocates none hare cone beyond this letter of Gen Quant. Not ouly docs he advocate the coinage of I KiO.OOO.OOO of silver for our own use, but favors our doing the coinage for nil tho Houth American States, so as to make a market for our silver. It was not till two yean after this letter that the fraud was diw o ered There is one thing in this letter that will strike the masses of the people as containing a fund of sound sense, nnd shows not ouly that Gen. Grant had thought deeply on the subject, but that his thinking was all In the direction of the people rather than the bond holders." Credit orflohtherm Ntafefl. 1 There ts no doubt In the world of tht ability of the Southern States to pay the Interest i on their koaest funded Indebtedness. Neither Is therethe remotest doubter the abllttj of private citizens, generally, la that section of the country, to Hqoidate their obligations, if thcr are so disposed. There Is no section of country in the ctllieed World whsre produc tive Industry Is tnorellberally rewarded by tho (onerous mother nature, and there Is no other section In which the products of agricultural labor are In more general demand at private sale. Cotton, rice, tobacco, sugar, molasses. tropical fruits, naval stores, and all articles of domestic consumotlon are always tn demand at remunerative rates. On the other hand, labor Is cheaper there than It Is In any other section of 'the Union, and may be paid for either In knd or In cash. All that the Southern States need to enable them to pay their debts, and become Independent and rich, Is the practice of both domestic and pub lie economy in expenditures not parsimony but true economy, that which constitutes judi cious oq Ui y. an outlay which will yield a good and profitable return, and of untiring Indus try; that diligence In business which alono Insures success. In this latter feature it is ab solutely necessary, there as well as elsewhere, that the employer should set the example. If be Is always on the alert to see that his work Is web) performed, his workmen will know that there Is no use In trying to deceive him. And If ho discriminates hi the rewards of labor by commending and remunerating accordingly' those of his employees who are most Industri ous In labor and most careful la handling his property, to sscure It from waste and to save It from spoliation or destruction which, by the way, he cannot well do without giving the matter his personal attention he will soon find that his hands will accomplish twice as much la a season as they will under the coarse, rough, and unsympathetic supervision of a hired overseer. lie will soon find thst there Is scarcely any limit to the generosity of mother earth If she be only prop erly tilled aud nourished. What the South must hare to Insure pros perity Is well-managed, Intelligent labor, ller lands will run to Idle waste without It They will not produoe enough to pay taxes. Wild, uncultivated lands are the least desirable, be cause the least profitable estates lu the world. iAbor will not thrive where It Is badly man aged, worse remunerated, and politically cm barrasscd or oppressed. Labor must be free- absolutely or compulsory, In order to be suc cessfully employed. In the one Instance the incentive Is fair remuneration and acquisition of a competence ; while In the other it is only a fear of the lash. In the former case the laborer feels bound to sustain all the dignities and responsibilities of an American citizen, while In the latter he feels that his highest ambition is achieved when he has per formed the least possible amount of labor that will secure his person subsistence and his back Immunity front punishment. What country can be expected to thrive under system of oppressed, uneducated labor f Do not tho land owners of tho Suuth comprehend that they are utterly beholden to labor for future prosperity? Do they not know that labor Is tho real tax-payer, and therefore by right Is also entitled to an education and to ho tho true voter? Do they not comprehend that their true interests lio In common with those of their laborers? Iftheydonot, these facts aro about the first which they should learn with a view to permanent future prosperity, Thcsn remarks hae been Inspired by the perusal of the following letter from New York, Wo commend Its contents to tho careful con sideration of Sainton Uobdoi ad Lamar, with tlie suggostlon that they should try the credits of their rcspectho States lu tho com mercial centres of tho country bt fore indulg ing In anymore Miln-glorioui building of air castles yclept "iino State Credit" Here Is tho letter i ' tw York, December 27, 1877.

JM, The aboe Is based upon what, purports to bean interview with Senator Cockrelt., al though we are very credibly Informed Unit fact aud fancy go to make up tho "Interview" in the ratio of about one part of tho former to nlno of the latter. Nevertheless the article af fords a very good test upon which to com ment We aro told that such an amendment should be adopted for two reasons first, be cause it would finally settle tho vexed ques tion of compensation; and secondly, because If a Democrat offered It and a Democratic House passed tt, the effect woud be 'to take the wind out of the Republican sails, and to deprive them of tho opportunity of again charging that If tho Bouth ever regained power they would reimburse thimsehcs out of the Federal Treasury for losses sustained by their rebellion. Senator Cock lit ll and some others of his party are sincere on this subject ; but we have gra o doubts of the sin cerity of the roust of the Southern Demo crats. They had an opportunity once, to set tie this vexcdjiucstiou and put it at rest for- over. How they availed themselves of It the record will show. On December 18, 1870, Mr. IIVKTrs, of In diana, introduced a resolution lu the Houso of Representatives Instructing the Cummtttco on the Judiciary to report within twenty days an amendment to the Constitution forever prohibiting the payment to persons who were disloyal of claims growing out of the Into war. In the preceding rampalgn Itepnblican orators mado the charge that If tho Dt-mocrats ever got into power they would make an effort to have the Houth paid for property taken by the United fetatcs army during the war. The charge was Indignantly re pellcd by Democratlo stump orators aud by tho Democratic press, North and South. It was all a Republican lie. It was an adjunct to the wao of the bloody shirt It wasamaliguant slaudcr upon tho high-toned Southerners who had accepted tho results of the war in good faith. Now, Inflow of theao professions and assertions, simple minded pcoplo would hat e naturally sui posed that the Democrats would liste been glad of tho opportunity to put themselres squarely on the record. Hut not so. Mr. Hu.itbr's revo lution created consternation and demoralization In the Democratlo ranks. The Southern Demo crats especially looked blank. But a vote was forced, aud they had to go back on their South ern allies, for one time at least. Seventy-four Democrats out of one nundrcd and eighty-two . r j .. a A.

The hide of a Northern doughface is thick, but It was not thick enough for that tour Northern Demo crats had the tmrity'to votelagatost the resolution. They were Aixswokth. ef Iowa i Car a, of Indiana Cowan, of Ohio, and Wah- ikn, of Massachusetts. Neither, of these sre la' the present Congress.' Only fifteen Southern Democrats voted for the resolution. --... i ' i . . nu oi mese oniy two (llui ana Branc-Ks, ti LouUIanijJ came from a State that was active ly and positively In the rebellion. Tho other thirteen were from the border States of Dels; ware, Maryland, Kentucky, and 'Missouri, These facts speak volumes. Here was the first opportunity the Democrats had to show their sincerity, and they gave the Ho to all the pro fessions mads so loudly during the Presidential campaign . The resolution wss adopted, and how was the order of tho House treated by the Democratlo Judiciary Oommttte, of which Mr. Proctor Kkott'wu then, as he hrhow, chair man f On January 8, 1877, Mr. llujrrta called the attention of the House to th fact that the commlttco had not reported within1 pie twenty days as directed, sod he offered a further reso lution directing a report to be made within two days. This was defeated, the boutnsrni Democrats having drummed up. enough; re cruits to bring about this result As i stated above, when the resolution was 'adopted on December 18, only four Northern Democrats had the temerity to vote against It pn Jan uary 8, tho number was Increased to eleven. These were AtNswoBTU, of Iowaj BAOLT,of Illinois Cate, of Wisconsin Caultield, of Illinois; Cowair,of Ohio; Eden, or Illinois) nAMiLTOic, of New Jersey i Lanvxbs, of Con necticut; Mutcducs, of Pennsylvania j YYia- dint-on, of California; and. Wood, of New York. Messrs. Eoinf, Lakdeks, aud Wood aro members of the present House, Had these gentlemen voted as tho Northern people would have desired them to do the resolution would have been adopted. But they did not dare to disobey their Southern masters. The crack of, tho plantation whip mado them ignore the wishes of their own constituents. Let It be borne In mind that this occurred In the very midst of the most exciting politt cal contest this country has eer witnessed, when the Presidency hung trembling In the balance, and when the Democracy had every motive to prove the sincerity of their utter ances dnrlng tho preceding campaign. If they did not hesitate then, where would bo the hesi tation If theyhad full power If the Prcst dency and the Senate were under their con trol? We have no idea that the Northern Demo crats Individually want to see those claims paid. But tho South Is tho Democratic party. The Northern clement Is coiuparath ely a jncro corporal's guard. Tho Northern Democrat must therefore, dance as tho Southern Demo crat pipes. If the Democracy over gets full control of thU flo eminent it must be through the South, and tho Northern dough-luces must cringe and obey again, just as they cringed to and obeyed tho slave power before 18(A). The Democrats of the South must be coucillated at all hazards. Wo hae had renewed evidence of this within two days.
