laws which Governor Haven, nud
all tho Republican upoukcrs nnd nil
tho Ilcpubliean nowpptipors of Ohio,

seven of thorn wero voted for by
Co, l'ond, nine of them lie did not
volo updu at till, ono ot them ho in
troduccd, nnd one, and one only, ho
voted ngniiihl. Considering these
tacts, which tho journal:) of tho
IIoudO of Representative show to bo
true: find considering tho "durc-
lection of duty," which tho Repub
lican party charges on tho last Leg
isliitiiro, because of the enactment of
there lairs for which Col. Pond voted
and wo in K if "Col. Pond's dcrelec

proven ? It most certainly is pro
ven, if tho campaign cry of the Re
publican party, Legislative Extrav

tho Herald will not gainsay its
truth. Col. l'ond most certainly
stands in no very enviable position
!Io Is the 'jnndiduto of a parly that
condemns his every net ns a public
servant. Many men, under such
circumstances. would wtthdruw
from tho canvass.
Hut.thm is not nil. Tho Repub
liean party oi Ohio is crying outn
gainst tho Into Ohio Logiwlaturo for
receiving 85,00 per day for each day
of service each of its members ren
dered. Tho Republicans hro doing
this in tho lacoof tho notoriohs fact
that n Republican Legislature fixed
tho present salary of mcmbors o
lite Legislature ; and In fuco of tho
fact that tho sumo Republican Leg
islature drew tho increased puy for
their sorvico, which they votod
should bo paid to future Legisla
lurcs,.when they knew such nn act
to bo contrary to tho Stnto Consti

A friend of ours vtts on Saturday
informed by a wholcH'ilo grocery
merchant in this city, who has nl
wnyn been n Republican, that it was
his intention to vote, tho Democrat
ic, ticket nt tho coming election.
The rcuson assigned was tho nn
ernblo financial polity oflhoAd-
ministration, -t or instance, snys
the merchant, ''I had BOliiO duties
rV imported goods just nt
tho timo when gold wan ut its high
est point. Tho di'lferoncb between
it then nnJ what it was on iiumr
dny amounted, on tho good on
which I puid duties, to S3,lllili.
Now, my neighbor can propably
buy nt tbo preBcnt figure, and have
a very consideiuble advimlagc over
mo. W ho can do liusmess tinder
thoMs circumstances? 'Iho Gov
ernment collects f lSS.OOO.tiOO in
gold Irom customs. Tho only use
it has for gold is to pay tho inter
est on tho National debt, which ip
S120,000,V0O. It therefbro hoard
every year about $05,000,01 K), In
point of tact it lias carried, and is
carrying, about CI 00,000,000. The
immense amount, locked up in ilio
Government vaults, or Only taken
out in dribblets to influence the
market nt particular times, hns two
effects ; It, in tho first place, en
hances tho general demand for the
article, nnd, in tho text place,
makes its value ficklo nnd capri
cious, depending on tho contingen
cy of Governmental ltilerfei encc.
Herein is n fruitful source of corrup

bled to advance it t r force. n decline
nt thoir plensuro, thereby making
largo fortunes out of tho dintresses
of legitimate trnde. Tho Govern
ment should have no moro gold
thnn is required lor tho interest flu
tho debt, or, if it does collect more,
it should not liuanl it. Then the
market will obey tho natural laws
of trade, nnd not bo subject to this
one-man power. It is well known
that Iho parties in New York who
mado imiiU'tiso sums in tho luto

inlimato confidenco of Boutwell, tho
Secretary ortho Treasury .
But this is not. Iho only funda

ulnto the demand for them in Mil-

a tew years, tho most ol them will

820,000,000 moro than wo derive
from tho mines in California.
No nation ever before, by paying
doublo tho rates of interest given
by any Other Government, offered
un imineiiso premium to havo its
debt held beyond its own domin
ion. The debt of Kngland und of
Franco is owned ut homo, by their
own people, nnd is spent among
thorn. A largo part of ours, ontito
contrary, goes to enrich foreigners
who never visit our shores. 'J'heso
points, taken in connection with the
Btendy curtailment of tho circula
ting medium, have n tendency to
tighten tho niotioy market nnd to
make business dull und precarious.
Thcro must be n financial reform,
or beggary und ruin will overtako
tho country. Tho tariff must bo
greatly reduced, tho hoarding of
gold B'.oppod, the bonds paid in
greenbacks, a fresh issuo of green
backs mndo, and llieir purchnso in
Kuropo must bo discouraged by a
tux, sny, of tbtrly-tliroo per cent,
upon tho interest derive! from
them. At present thcro is nn in
ducement held out to tho rich
bondholders in tho United States
to keep their bonds in Europe, by
some agency, under other names,
nnd by this avoid even tho fivo per
cent, incomo tax, which is now tho
only tax imposed upon them. JVI1
other proporty pnys n tax of at least
two per cent.., und bonds t-hould not
