Tuesday. December 13. 187L ECLECTIC MAGAZINE. With the January number this inter esting aod valaabla Magazine enters upon a new yolame and its 34th year. The beginning of the year and of a new volume affords a favorable time to sub scribe, and few persons of culture and taste, having once become subscribers, are likely to dispense with its regular visita tions. The Eclectic has long held a high position among the periodicals of the country and increases in value and im portance yearly. Tne January number is rich in valuable articles among which may be named flclonee and Van ; 4 Tyndall's famons Birmingham lecture ; Vorbeft' Article on "Russians, Turks, and Bulga rians at the Theatre of war;' "Tbe Murder o( Thomas Bcckct" hy J.

Whoever disregards fair and dispassion ate argument and talks as -an extreme partizan, adopting a harsh and declama tory style, almost invariably employs language, which, with a simple change of name, can be as forcibly and truly used by the opposite party. The specimen which is given above fitly illustrates this idea. It represents precisely the expressions which may be heard upon both sides in reference to the acts of each, respectively. Turkian Valor. Tho European and Christian races every where.the races which account them selves the greatest, wisest, and bravest of the earth, have watched with amazement the spectacle of invalid and semi-barbarous Turkey contending on even terms with gigantic and organized Russia. At the outbreak of this struggle the civilized world supposed that it would be pitiably unequal; that, without the assistance of some one of the "great powers," the Moslems would be crushed in a single campaign; that the advantage of the Muscovite armies would be little more tnan a triumpnal promenade, it was commonly supposed that the superiority ot Kussia in soldierly disposition, intelligence, and education at least equalled her ad van tage in wealth and numbers. It had come to be an accepted credence, almost equiva lent to a military maxim, that Asiatic aud semi-Asiatic troops could not stand before huropeann. We have seen enough during the Bummer of lo to lead us to question these beliefs. Whatever may be the termination of tbe contest, the Turkish generals have showed formidable capacity, and the Turkish soldiers have exhibited bcroio courage. They have not only defended iutrench- ments with their historic tenacity, but they have assaulted them with impetuosity. and sometimes with success. Embodied, they seem to be the equals of the Russians, and man to man, their superiors. What is the meaning ot this wonderful uprising and resuscitation ot a people shonj al Europe looked upon as decadent and euominated? ' iiietrutn is tout tuere Las Been no change in the character of the Ottomans We have not read their history thoroughly aud with discrimination. Arguing loosely from their military disasters, we have n t done justice to their martial qualities. itieyuave always been Lravev even in their overthrows. Their most unfortunate wars, the wrestles in which they have suf fered defeat on dofeat.bave been illustrated by signal instances of heroism such as the most warlike nations might glory in. It they have lost territory, it has never been through lack of valor, nor altogether from want of good generalship, but mainly from defect of preparation. J. W. De Forest, in Jlarper s Magazine j or January. THE SILVER QUESTION. Chicago Sleeting. In pursuance of a call for a meeting to take aotion on tho silver question now pen . ding beforecongress, some 5,000 represen tatire men assembled in the Tabernacle the 13th inst listened to speeches, and adopted uiu loiiowiug resomtious wnicu were pre ceded by a briel preamble: Jtexolved that tbe demonetization of the silver coinage ot the United States was uiiuuKe in our mouemry system so grave and radical in its character and so vitallv affseting he commercial interests and rigtits of the people, especially those of the debtor class, that it ought not to have been ven tured upon even under tbe circumstances most tavorable until after a full, thorough ana exuaustive uiscussiob ot 1's merits be fore the people; and the covert scheme bv wuiuu ims most important measure was precipitated upon the country without one word of discussion either in congress or out and tne obstinate persistence with which the scheme is still- prosecuted in a time of uupaialelled business prostration and dis aster, and with the forced resumption specie payments in immediate prospect dis closes a reckless disregard for the public wel fare on the part of its movers which meritp. our severest censure and condemnation Resolved that we have tho best reasons for believing the demonetization of the sil ver dollar was accomplished through con cealment and deception, fraud and corrup tion, iti at in all probability not one man in this vast assembly of citizens had the slightest intimation that such measure was pending in congress until many mouths alter its passage aud whether our renresnn tatives who voted for the bill and the nres idetit who approved it were deceived or not tho people unquestionably were, and we, therefore, demaud its immediate and un qualified repeal. Retolved that one obvious purpose of the act demonetizing silver was to increase the 1 value of government bonds and correspon dingly increase the public burdens by secu ring the payment of these bonds in gold when by their term plainly expressed on their face they are redeemable ia coin of the standard value of the United States on July 14, 1873, when silver dollars as well as gold dollars were lawful tender in payment of all debts public and private: that in order to secure to the bond holders this advantage to which they are in no wise entitled, the people have been clandestinely robbed of the legal-tender quality of one-half their metallio currency, thereby greatlv enhan cing the difficulty and danger of the pro posed resumption oi specie payments ana uniustly increasing the burden of every individual debtor in the nation, as well as that of the nation at large. Resolved that while we have full confi dence in the integrity and patriotism of the president and his earnest desire to ful fill the duties of his high office ana pro mote the welfare of the nation, yet we view with just alarm the position taken by him on this question in bis late message, and we have good reason to believe that his judgement has been warped and mis guided by tha bad counsels of his constitu tional advisers into the adoption of a line of policy which would give the bondholders an undue and unjust advantage greatly to the detriment of the people. We have searched in vain through his message for any word of true comfort tor tne struggling masses by whose labor the money must be earned to pay these bonds. We regard his suggestion that by yielding to demands of yublio editors these bonds may be ex changed for others at reduced interest t delusion. There are two parties interested in this question, those who are to pay and those who are to receive the payment. We demand that justice be done both by restoring the old time honored standard measure of values. The burdens of the government will then rest lightly upon the shoulders of a prosperous people, but we see no hope of returning prosperity in this financial policy of the president and his maladvisers. Resolved that holders of government bonds not only have no right, legal or eauitable. to demand raiment otherwise than according to the express terms, but the government cannot with due regard to the rights of the people waive its opiton to pay in gold or silver and restrict itself to pay in gold 'only, and that when the attempt to do this is made by legislating out of existence the whole silver coinage of the country as a legal tender, and at the same time depressing the value of one of its most important products in the markets of the world, the conscauences of this nefarious scheme are so far reaching and disastrous that it calls for unmeasured denunciation. Resolved that the pronosal to pay bond holders exclusively in cold which their bonds do not call for, and at the same time demonetize silvei so far as to make it legal tender to some small amounts for all other kinds of indebtedness, would be partial legislation of the very worpt description. We emphatically reject all such coin promises. The money that is good enough for the people is good enough for the (Concluded on next page.) HEART DISEASE HEART DISEASE HEART DISEASE Can Be Cured.
