FACTS TO BE BEMEJHBERED. By referring: to the Congres sional Record -of the 28th of Jan uary, 1878, we find a resolution passed the House of Representa tives by a vote o189 to 79, de olaring that the bonds of the United States were payable in silver or gold, ,t the option of the Government. .The concur rent resolution further declared that their payment, principle and interest in silver would not be in violation of the;public faith, nor in derogation of ihe rights of the Dublic creditors. "We learn by .the Record that President McKiriley was then a member of Congress and voted in favor of the xesolution. . Two ex-Secretaries of .the Treasury J Foster and Carlisle voted with the majority for the resolution. "What has occurred since to '. . The Hillsboro. Herald predicts l ..thafc there is a future full of flis- appbintmenfc for .those gentlemen '-'"wno are standing back in the '.shadows of their own greatness -aqd expecting to pose as -dark Jhorses in the next State conveni tion. HI A BEX has been introduced in ihe Virginialegislature providing jorcne escaousumeuL uj. mo wuyi- - ping post for petty larceny, and 'vegprominenfr lawyers of that State have passed upon the con- dtutionalhV of its provisions. It contains a. provision exempting j men over 60 years or age, ana women are to select whether they jtee to be flogged or go to jail. '-The San Antonio Express 'v'thinks the State Supreme Court f jind the Court of Criminal Ap- . "peals should get together and; - . ' decide definitely as to the powers of the recorders' courts and the . -i charter powers of municial cor porations. This would be de j;cidedly preferable to the present ' ? pUin of reversing each other and '. - leaving communities in doubt as 'i '. H),tne powers of the police court, fjfc has been officially decided that .a'city recorder is not ex-officio a justice of the peace and that- ho , is, that State cases mav be tried in. the recorder's court and that the recorder, has no such juris justify the accusation that those who arein favor of paying the bonds in silver or gdld at the op-- tion of Ihe Government are repu diators. Inl8Q9alaw was -passed that the currency bonds should be paid in coin, thereby virtually adding six hundred ;millions to the public debt. This was de nominated "an' act io strengthen the public, credit. The public credit was in no need of a strengthening plaster- Ihe title should have been an act io rob the taxpayers for the (exclusive benefit of Shylocks. John Sherman,, who ought to be an acceptable witness io the credit holders, said the. man who demands a better money for his bonds -than he paid for them was an extortionist .nd repudiator. How changed the conditions! Those who are in favor of paying the public debt according to the letter and spirit of the laws under wmen it was contracted are re-i pudiators ! Bonds payable in silver and so recited in the bond must be paid derogating the rights of the pub lic creditors to justify the con clusion that the word coin em braces only gold. "We stand by the concurrent resolution of 1878, for which our President voted. His present position is in derogation of -the rights of debtors. Debtors have rights as well as creditors,, and the Nation's honor will be fully vindicated when it requires debtors to pay their Ob ligations in the money of the con stitution. It is disgraceful and dishonorable to wholly ignore and disregard the rights of the. debtor class. The charge that the advocates of silver favor re pudiation is a. willful and ma licious lie which should choke the villain to death that utters it. The silverites do not wish to pay debts in a depreciated or dishon est money. They wish to pay every dollar in the lawful money of the United' States at whatever sacrifice. They are just as strongly op posed to disfranchising one half of the lawful money for the pur pose of enabling, creditors to double the purchasing value of their securities. They would have" silver and gold coin equal in their debt-paying" power, and they claim that when clothed alike with the money functions they will be on a parity' with each other. Unfriendly legislation las caused a divergence in their commercial value. Friendly, leg islation will bring them together. They fully indorse the declara tion of Lincoln, that it is a nigh crime to contract a large debt when there was a large volume of circulating medium, .and then contract the circulation before the debt is paid. If debts could be paid in silver in 1878 without a. breach of faith and without STATE HEWS. -Valuable gold mines are said to have been discovered in Llano county.

The question at issue is .'mainly a ' question of f ee3, but it . ought to be definitely decided one way or the other- honor is sacrificed ! Foster, Car lisle and McKiriley have met with a change, of heart since January 28, 1878. The national banker, Lymari Gage, takes it for granted that silver is no longer a redeemer of obligations to pay money.! There are too many who believe that all debts public and private, can be dis charged with silver dollars, with- .democratic executive committee! of Tarrant county has indorsed the candidacy of Col.

Ingalls has arrived at San An tonio, says the Express, for ihe purpose of investigating the In dian ' depredation claims of the widow and children, of Amon Barnes,- the indemnity claimed amounting to 3125,000. The depredations for which the claim-' ants seek to recover indemnity occured near Fort Thorn. New Mexico, in the spring of 1861. The elder Amon Barnes, it is claimed, had contracted to fur nish the government with 2,500 head of cattle at S50 per head. Before he had delivered the cattle a band of Apache and Navajoe Indians, some 400 strong, made a raid on Barnes' ranch and ac cording to the testimony adduced by the claimants, drove off the. entire herd.
