THE NEED OF THE TIMES. The proposition that as as a people we are on the downward road because of our extravagance and profligacy, and thatwe can never begin to mend until bitter experience shall teach us to establish stricter rules of economy for our guide, may at first fright seem absurd, as in these striugent times ne cessity has compelled us to exercise the strictest economy by striking from the list of expenses a great portion of the luxuries in which we formerly in dulged. It is very true that many of U9 are compelled to make the old ap parel answer a little longer, and the I old worn out implement to do further service, aud thus curtail the business of the merchant and the manufacturer, causing a loss to our neighbors and also considerable loss of self-respect to ourselves. While in very many in stances justice could be done to both, if by a strict self-examination under a rigid rule of discipline our perverted tastes aud habits could correct. How many are instances in which the price of living is doubled through the grati fication of a desire for intoxicating-or stimulating drinks, or the immoder ate use of tobacco. The appetite that craves these is not natural but acquired, and if it could be confined to an occa sional indulgence, the evil would be comparatively slight. But the very tendency of the desire is to beget cravings and longings that will not j down at our bidding, and in their! gratification all other demands upon the purse, whether of individual needs or family or social obligations, are made suliordinate. It is also very hard to divest ourselves of the anti-j democratic desire to ape those who, i perhaps, on ill-gotten or borrowed cap- ital arc expending money in vain j show instead of recognizing the needs of humanity demanded by the bond of a common sympathy. The balloon of inflation that lifted a nation -of people from the terra-firma of a life of living realities and demo cratic simplicity, up into the terial regions of fancy and artificial life, J long since reached its altitude, and is j certainly ami surely descending, and the most ridiculous performance in which an American citizen can be en gaged is in trying to furnish the gas to keep it in air. We must return to the old simplicity and republican mode of living. It is in vain that necessity compels us to curtail in some things while the feelings, desire and habits remain the same. We must be edu cated to the modes of a real life. The great danger of the unnatural and un healthy conventionalities politically and socially of the last twenty years, lies in the fact that the rising genera tion is inclined to receive their educa tion from the teachings of these ab normal conditions, instead of from the healthy precepts and maxims promul gated by the fathers in time of peace. We must learn that war, though ever so necessary for an emergency, is yet an unnatural condition, that deranges the healthful and even coarse of things, and it is the duty of every na tion to outgrow thos3 conditions as soon as possible after the object is ac complished. But the danger of this country lies in an inclination to make the customs and usages of a military necessity the rule for a time of peace. The rising generation can secure pros perity only by going back of the days of this stormy periods tor the basic principles of action. The leading feature of that period was an inclina nation to run into debt. Necessity impelled the nation, States, cities, towns, corporations, then individuals ftdlowed the lead in a regular line of succession. Then came heavy taxes and personal responsibilities. Large salaries also became the order of the day; corporations and individuals soon became possessed of this lucra tive idea. It all went very well while the balloon kept its altitude. But when the supply began to contract, the trouble commenced. The inflation bubble burst, but the inflated ideas ol salaried men underwent no change. The idea of doing things on a large scale seems to yet have possession of the people. Inflation brought over supuly of everything and the laborer and' manufacturer were out of employ, or compelled to work for a mere pit tance. But the people foolishlv as sented 4o an increase of salaries of great officials, and voted to more than quadruple those of lesser officers. The Young and rising idea is to have things done on a large Swfiititk AniVrvan. .It would hard I v be supiwscd that so large an amount as S2.000.000 in counterfeit silver and gold coin is now afloat in this country ; but such ac cording to the estimate of treasury experts, is the fact, aud moreover, the total is constantly increasing, the punous money passes through tnou- sands of innocent hands, until finally it is caught in the meshes of the nets laid by the Secret Service, or is recog nized by a lynx-eyed expert in some large batik. Then the unfortunate holder becomes the victim of the counterfeiter's skillful rascality. In order to imitate a coin success fully that is, so that it will deceive, not the general public, because prol- ably most persons never take a second look at the coin thev receive, provided its appearance seems right, but the clerk or cashier moderately well ac customed to handling money the counterfeiter must regard execution, size aud we-iirht. The last is most important in gold coin, because the least current weight of the latter is established, wherea3 in silver a coin of light weight so long as the reduction is not manifestly too great, will pass. The standard weights and least cur rent weights of gold are as follows : iw ?t:i"rl, .r . ; lit ritr'ut t .M:i a tin i". " " " 'JM 71 c; lt " l.s :k . ;i ." i'.l is below the Note from the Saratoga of the Rockies. a clumsy expedient, as the coin is far below proper weight, a fact easilv appreciable by mere handling. ' It is a difficult matter to lay down I anr rpiipral rule tor riPlprnncr (otiii. terfeit coins, as it will be seen from the foregoing that the closest ocular in spection may be wholly at fault. In general the milling ou the edge of the counterfeiter coin is always poorly executed as compared with the genuine but wear of the latter often renders the distinction difficult to draw.

Anv decrease latter figures subjects the holder to a loss eqin valent to the difference. 1 his decrease may occur by wear, or is very often the case, through sundry nefarious processes, which though not projierly counterfeiting, nevertheless liclong to that species of crime. Thesis operations are perhaps the most dangerous to the community, lie cause as a rule the coin preserves its appearance, is apparently genuine under the acid test, and in tact, is genuine except in weight. It is im possible, for example to tell whether a ::oin has been "sweated" or not with out weighing it, and by sweating is meant the use of the coin as the abode in the electro plating bath, the gold being abstracted from it and deposited on another surface. Of course a uni form quantity is removed from the entire surface, ami the imprint retains its original sharpness. As much as two dollars worth of gold is sometimes taken from the double eagle in this way. A less scientific plan is one too" commonly adopted by conscience less jewelers, who, when they want a little gold, instead of buying the pre cious metal, purchase a twenty-dollar piece, file off with a dead-smooth fiie a .sufficient quantity, reburnish the place,and pass off the coin at full value. The mo-it extensive fraud perpetrated on gold coinage is splittings.' The operation uses a finer saw to split the coin neatly two. Then he gouges the gold out of the center until only a thin outside shell is left, and substi tutes a silver and platinum alloy for the metnl thus abstracted. The two ntirts are then ioined with gold solder. and the e:lge is remilled. In this wav gold to the value of S1.50 has becirtakcii from a single piece. The ojieration. however, generally destroys the ring or tone of the coin, leaving it, besides, either too light or too thick. Another swindle is to bore into the edtres. The holes whence the gold is taken are refilled with silver, covered with gold solder, and the edges are neatly finished, but the light weight reveals the theft. From $5 to 87 50 worth of gold has thus been taken from one coin, and the pieces of course have every appearauce of being T 1 A f L. LI t genuine, tveai couuieneuens uww is, coin wholly spurious because of base metal are almost invariably oeiow weight. An exception to this, how ever, exists in a $5 piece which is of th( tfxact standard weight ot 129 J grains. It is composed of an alloy of j j gold and silver, and worth from 82 70 to S3 40. Its appearance and tone are excellent, but it is thicker than the genuine coin, and hence may be de tected bv the gauge. Still, it is one of the most dangerous counterfeits in existence. A silver piece passes current so long as the imprint is not badly defaced or - all. ttvoo-ht oTPJitlv reduced. a noie through a coiii'howevcr condemns it. ; The low value of silver prevents any such proceedings as in the case of gold as the amount which could safely be abstracted will not pay for the trouble of doing it. Consequently, all silver counterfeits are true imitations, and there is hardly a date of dollar, half dollar or quarter which has not been copied with remarkable accuracy. The counterfeiter either makes a mould in plaster from the real coin, and casts from it, or he stamps his imitation in dies. As this last process is the same as in use in the mints, the counterfeits thus produced are more difficult to detect, because, besides be- iug more accurately finished, the com nression which the allov receives brings it nearer to standard weight. A large numher ot coutuerieii silver coins are made chiefly of type metal. A very dangerous half-dollar is com posed of silver, copper and zinc, and is worth about seventeen cents. It is from seven to ten grains too light Spurious half-dollars have appeared which constintly deceive bant tellers and other experts, because they are of full weight, lhey are made ot a compound similar to German silver and are so well plated with genuine silver that the acid does not alect them. They are, however, too thick, and the gauge, as usual, where the balance fails, shows the fact. Counter feits of the quarter dollar, though very plenty, are less dangerous than those of larger pieces. They are laid decently back, but there was no crimped cap with its neat tie beneath the chin.

To a fair mind, however. these old monument look small compared with their pictures in our iruagmatiQB painted ! '""YYie wistles, especially, looked cramped, and the gallant knights and ladies seem small. The ancient chivalry looks like the fantastic dream of those soldier min strels, who used to puff lheir iron-clad patrons worse than any subsidised news paper could nowadays. A quaint old French author, on these same minstrels who manufactured heroism, says: "Even princesse and great ladies were very weak towards, theee graceful and accomplished individuals, to whom they ncarcely could refuse anything; and it is quite true that the reward of their complacency was to be sung and glori filed as far above their de serts as the knights in the tournaments, who could buy the song and praise of a minstrel and have himself made a hero for so much money." And this brings Be on tn the "Tziganes." the wildest and most unearthly bards imaginable, that pervade Pans now. Their brown faces and picturesque attire, with the wild style of their mimic, is ex tremely fascinating.

They always "draw," and, in fact, are the rage. Xec From Our llegukir CorrennaVnt. CLINTON. Stray Waif from Oar Sister City. Clintox, June 29th. County convention meets to-day.

TELEGRAPH Reported by Traiui-MUxi-viippi Aivoriaied Prfxf , soulless s; HEM MAN Wants One Hundred Wit nesses Subpcenaed. More Testimony. Washinuton, June 29. A draft of a letter has been prepared bv Mr. Mor- jison, of the Potter Committee, in an swer to Secretary Sherman requesting to nave subpoenaed from .Louisiana the one hundred witnesses expected to give material testimony touching the freedom of election and murders and intimidation of voters in all East and parts of West Feliciana. Morrison says in the course ot the reply that "the records of Congress to which you refer, and other records of Congress with which you are doubtless familiar, authorize the statement that for the testimonv of said witnesses, as numerous as intelligent, and whose testimonv is at least entitled to belief, it is neadless to add that should these one hundred withesses acain repeat their testimonv. five hundred others at least as creditable as they will be ready again to contradict them." I he reply concludes as follows: "Whatever of accusation is made agrinst them in their resolutions of the House of Representatives, under which this Committee is acting rests, o far as anv testimony vet heard, shows upon the statements and allega tions that to intluence and control Weber and Anderson in their official acts, you made them verbal promises and wrote letters to them giving them assurances and promisses of reward if the committee correctlv understood your statement oetore you uenieu writing such letter and such promises. However material the evidence of the witnesses you ask to have summoned mav be to the fact of the number ot persons killed, threatened and driven from office or otherwise intimidated. as you assure the committee it is. the fact that the committee has correctly understood you to deny the allegation that you wrote the letter and gave hese promises and assurances for such allegation will be neither established nor disproved bv evidence bv number of the killed in Feliciana parishes. POTTER'S PUMP Land A Co. of Brownsville, shipped the first car load of new wheat from Browns ville, on Friday. It was bought at sixty to seventy five cents per bushel. It seems that Patli has knocked the bot tom out of the divorce, whereby the gay marquis would have gotten well pid for his absence, by showing that there was no marriage, therefore there cannot tie any di- j vorce. The marriage performed in Eng-J land by a priest is still good enough for the! lady's concience. but won't hold her money, ' and this is considered an excellent sell on the wicked old marquis. j pjTe c,r Inaifsi of new wheat were According to l he C ;rtft, the priest tripped from Uoustonia on the 25th inst parties have con Fred Wilson, at Houstonia, is a happy man.
