Paper Money vs Laboring Men.
[From the N. Y. Caucasian.]
, Eanka find banking institutions are
tlio poor man's curse. Every agcucy
which enables ono class of peojdo to
livo without labor, to live without
producing a dollar, and taxes at the
eame time another class for the sup
port of thoeo drones, is an evil of the
gravtBt character. Wo livo to-daj

carried out in this country the world
never before witnusucd. llistorj

"promises to pay," ad libitum, ad
irijinitwn, without tho slightest refer
encu to the gold and silver Lasia.whicb
it was once held these paper nioi.sy
schemes 6hould ever bo founded upon.
In 1776 our lathers created a mighty
moneyod monster which was to pav
tho Revolutionary war debt, as thu
jrtsent Ircasury issues are expected
to liquidate tho present war claims.
There was then, as there is now, a
petty despotism ruling at tho Adiuin
istra'ion headquarters. Laws were
put through tho old Congress that
"whoever should rofuso to receive in
laynient Continental money, bliould
'jo declared an enemy to his country ;
should bo treated as such, a:id ban
ished, or outlawed ; the severest pen
alty known to our laws." This des
potisin continued in lorco for live
years. Jt showed ltseit in tender acts,
in limitation ol prices, in awtul and
threatening declarations, in ponai
aws, with terrible pnnuliments, and
in every other way that could bu do
vised, and all executed with a ruth
leBS soverity. Committees of inspec
tions were constituted authorihes
wIiobo powers were nearly sovereign,
(the Wades, Chandlers and Simmers
of those days ;) they, with Congress,
and tho military force, put their heels
upon .the ptopio then as now, and so
reads atory : "Men ot all descnp
tbns 6tooU trembling be for o this
rnonsler of forco, without daring to
iift a hand against it, for live long
years. Tho creation, rise and cul
mination of Continental currency
echeuce is well known. It went up
like a rocket and came down like u
stick, as our modern currency scheme
is bound to do. Hint issue ot $360,
000.000 of irredeemable paper money
in 1776 to 171, a historian of that
day said, "polluted the equity of the
laws, turned them into engines ot
oppression and wrong, corrupted
the justice of public administration,
destroyed the fortunes of thousands of
thou who hod the most counaence
it, enervated trade, crippled the bus-
bandrj aad ruanafftctares of the conn
try and tended to destroy tho morality
of tho people.''
Mr. Jefferson dennnnccd banks as
parasitical institutions; nr.d during
his life, expressed bis abhorrence ol
rhcir whole scheme of operations. It
has been said, that in tho history of
nations as well as oi individiiale.there
aro to bo found moments of frenzy In
which every movement baffles tho
calculation of the politician, the mor
alist, and. tho philosopher. We are
passing through that frenzied stage,
now ; or rather, we aro in that stage j
wbetusr we are working out of it as a
people. God alone knows. Creating!
a war dedt of three thousand millions J
the administration is building anormi
dable moneyed scheme by which to
grind oat the interest on that debt ;
and the blood and marrow of the poor
man, tho laborer, the great class of
industrial workingmcn, mtut create,
this interest; tor the grim- money
lender will want his quarterly returns'
from tho troasury of the country, and;
it is only paid into that treasury by
tho sweat and toil of the great million.
If the gnat body of laboring men
could only realise what a vampire i
bank is. smoking their very life bioodf,
while tho poor, ignorant, credulous
victims are sleeping in fuli confidence
of the blessings ! ot these institutions
if these vict!msof the monoved power
could only bo made to understand its
evils, every bank in the country would
bo swept out of existence as by a
whirlwind. Do the farmers, mechan
ic!, and tho laboring class in general,
b.-lieve that the majority of the sur
plus wealth which their labor yearly
produces, ought in justlco to be owned
at tho end of tho year by a few finan
ciers I Does their common sense
teach them that a few, for the uso of
money necessary to exchange ;the
commodities produced, ought to gain
double, treble, oi quadruple as much
of the production as those who furn
iBb the skill and perform the labor,
which those productions are tho risult
of? .!. .-...

receive from seven to ten per cent per
year for their money directly, and the
hank profits from exchanges, drarts,
&c, reach as high as twenty-tivo per
cent. When a laboring man boys a
bill of lumber and fashions it into
chairs, tables or dwelling houses, and
obtains from tho public a price for bis
labor, he has given in exchange some
thing tangible; the world .has been
enriched by his transactions ; btH
when yonr "capitalist" sits in bis
office in Wall street, and makes thous
ands per year out ot his brain labor in
fleeting a loan ot bauK paper "prom
ises to pay," how much better off is
ho groat world lor Ins transaction l
What benefit to mankind are these
mere money drones ? What benefit
do '.hey confer upon labor, upon the
industrial ciassts I JNone at all ; on
the contrary, these moneyed concerns,
as banks or brokers, are leeches upon
tho great body of labor, sucking its
ile-blood, through "interest."
All State and national debts are
dead weights upon labor. All bpnks
are debt creating institutions.tending
to eflect tho mortgaging of the uodtes
and sonls of the moneyless portion ol
the people. All ''capitalists" or money
enders belong to the same soulless
Money is of sorvicft to the world
only as the standard of value by which
thi products ot lue soil, all mercuan
dizo, and the labor of tho people, are
8tnnated. When there lsasurplns
of mouey, when banks aro created to
an unwarrantable extent and currency
is emitted broadest, speculation is
fostered, hazardous enterprises are set
on foot, unhealthy schemes of all sorts
aro concocted.and a lingo agregato cl
interest is obtained which labor alone
has to provide. Incomes from labor
and products invaribly diminish in
nrouortion to the increase of Income
from money. When the money lender
advances tho price of the use ot money
or interest, the producer has to labor
arder than ever to clear bis $100 ,
and yet the money lender or broker
has done notmng t.o aid production,
hut by his increased rate of interest
has retarded it.
Let' tho workingman never lose
sight of the one startling fact, that
every new bank foisted upon too com
muuity is only another load to be
fastened upon the back of labor. Every
dollar thrown out must produce its
seven to filteen per ccni; and that
seven to fifteen per cent is only op
tained by somebody s sweat ana ton
Money brings, in every city in this
country, from fiye per cont per year to
three per cent per ruonib, and ma
capitalist sits quietly in b's bank
parlor and gathers in his tax, without
life exertion ol a mue'cle, while in the
busy streets, the workshop, tho fields,
labor is creating it for him ; and thr-
wmgh tho procecs of this creation, tho
iauoror wears out his framo by toil
and anxiety, barely earning a living,
because bis surplus has gouo for too
high interest.
Hie result of banks, as they Rre
multiplied and managed, is to filch
the, rewards of labor from him who
has justly earned them, and put these
rewards into tho pockets of tho mere
moneyed drone w&o never tatnej jus
salt in the whole course of his exist
eacc.. - Let the laboring men examine
a few practical facts: $100 put out at
six per cent Interest, the latter collec
ted ' every six months and pddod to
tbo, principal,' will accumulate in a
period of sixty years. $33,671,63. At
seven per , cent, tho accumulation
would foot up, in tho sama time,
$71,893,92. ilut banks get, on the
average, 18 per oent out of labor for
the Use of their currency; and sixty
years- loaning of $1,000, ac this rate
of iuterest, woula snow earnings no
less than S32,2 30,196,79. Let US
take the $,1000 and give it to ono ot
the Shylocks who infeit Wall and
William streets, . seeking tho poor
creditless victims who mwrbave
money, even if bo pays at the rato of
30 per cont per year. There ars thous
ands such, and in any year the past
sixty, they have been found in all largo
cities. Sixty vcars' uso of $1,000, at
30 Dor cent per year, interest nayablo
semi-annually and reloaocd, will foot
up $294,036,059,207,37. Iheae tram
actions take placo between "capital"
and "labor" constantly ; and at this
rate tho producer pays over to tuo
money leuder the entire results oi his
daily toil. Do you wonder, my hard-
working mend, that tuereare so many
cdustnous man in the world who
"never seem to get ahead 1"
