millions It useful to place the figures be- e and let them speak on h been a 1 mount of at l v lie peop for In doing so account will of an important fact which by overlooked with much to their argument This -t that a given nominal amount of money is now worth per cent more than it was worth in Of course this expansion in value is equivalent to a like percentage of in- in the volume of the currency even though such an increase had been attended by no depreciation On the of April 1865 gold stood at a medium at that period The paper dollar was therefore worth vero a shade Reckoning at the same paper worth cents more which percentage just mentioned iL in view compare tv o y is 1365 A NOTE OF WARNING Or Opposition to tlie Com- mon Schools of America College of Jesuits to be at Washington

circulation therefore of the two measured in value compare as A telegram from Washington under date of September 7th says that it is positively asserted by parties well known in that city that Cardinal Closkey in his visit to Rome will in- a system of attack upon free school system prevailing in this country It is said that a College of Jesuits is to be established in this country with headquarters in for the express purpose of in- a war upon the common school system There is to be a branch college established in all of the cipal cities throughout the country under the control and jurisdiction of the central college ct Washington and a gradual effort will be made to break down the system of common schools both by the College of Jesuits and the influence of the priesthood throughout the country According to the ments of parties from whom this in- formation is derived there was con- diversity of opinion among the prime movers concerning the tion of a proper site for headquarters but it was finally conceded that ington would be the most available place on account of the facilities given for influencing State delegations and other prominent persons in public and life It is stated that the in- sought by the delegate of the Pope Count Roncetti with the Indian delegations here last spring was with direct reference to a system of work among these tribes in the hope of proselyting them to the Roman Church The full details of the scheme will be submitted it is alleged to the Pope by Cardinal McCloskey and upon receiving his sanction will be carried out The matter has been freely dis- cussed in Washington by a good many persons during the past few days and has caused much comment Prominent Catholics there who weie consulted in regard to the project are

THE Cincinnati Enquirer thinks it evident from the recent collapse of the Bank of California that a commodity basis for currency is not a panacea for panics or all financial ills Nor is it Nor will it cure the cholera or convert to a godly life as the New York World good Democratic authority shows a coin the sole legal tender into which every form of credit is ble on demand is the best and cure for the greatest financial ills For while it will not make speculative tradesmen and giddy brokers and im- prudent entrepreneurs less rash it subjects even their enterprise to fewer hazards But of the ers of the world belong to no such class Credit panics credit smashes never originate with farmers who are half of alt the workers of the United States although cannot always cape their But a curse like that under which the try now rests is the greatest of all cial ills and its worst effects fall up- on the farmers of the land the laboring classes generally Their votes can cure it Let them remember that o tu we in h he of boen had in fall main an expand a ot and twenty therefore mav have incr depression it is A CUBE FOK DEFALCATIONS We dislike as much as anybody can possibly dislike legislation regard to business but as soon as the next State Legislature assembles it ly ought to declare criminal certain practices which custom has made ful and long practice downright dis- honesty Herbert Spencer in an article on morals in trade speaks of accommodation bills as ob- money under false pretenses in this strong language it is to be feared only illustrates a custom com mon all over the When A and B agree the one to draw and the other to accept a of for value received while in truth there has been no sale of goods between them or no value ed the transaction is simply AN EMBODIED LIB Whosoever the does so in the belief that B having become possessed of worth of goods will when the falls due have either the worth of goods or some equivalent with which to meet it Did he know that there were no such goods in the hands of either A or B and no other property available for liquidating the he would not discount it he would not lend money to a man of straw without security The case is the same as though A had taken to the bank a forged mortgage deed and obtained a loan upon it Practically an accomodation is a forgery This is emphatic and incisive guage but the evil practices of the age warrants it Here there is no law to reach the greatest offence as there was in the case of the Collie Brothers in London where Alexander ran away to escape just punishment This man indeed laid the foundations of his posed fortunes in a series of successful ventures in ning during our great war and is the last of the British All the rest have gone to a bad com- end and he to more utter ruin than any of the others What some new State law must forbid and punish is speculating with other people's vate property as in the deposits of in- except in discounting good commercial paper which paper must be proved good by forbidding the sale of the kind of paper which Herman Spencer so emphatically pronounces a fraud and forgery Credit is an ines timable blessing but there ought to be something to back it honesty at least and with that freedom from tion which because evil is so easily concealed leads so many to a business and social perdition AT its recent annual meeting the British Medical Association a very important scientific devoted con- attention to the subject of habitual drunkenness which seems to have been generally considered as a species of cerebral disease and ity Dr Peddle of Edinburgh ded drunkards into four First those who inherit the propensity for intemperance second those who evince it as the chief manifestation of some form of cerebral disease third those who are affected with it as a re- sult of injury of the head severe fever or other wasting bodily ailment tal shock heavy grief reverse of for- tune and indeed causes similar to those anteceding some other ties and fourth those who acquire it through a course of vicious indulgence in stimulants It was important he said to determine the boundary line between the vice and the disease of in- temperance and of the latter when combined with mental disorder pendent of alcoholism and to treat it accordingly The prevailing opinion was that intemperance is a species of insanity requiring exactly such re- straint and treatment as is given to other mildly insane patients of of OUK NEW YORK Heat Dust and Peaches ness Cost of Coming to New the Dead Banker YORK September 6 1875 Fervid heat and intolerable dust mark the opening of September and raise many a longing sigh as we read of the frost and bracing weather in the Northwest Water carts late the streets all day long ice cream is the staple article of diet and the baskets of spotted peaches left by the glut in the market raise but a feeling of satiety The genius who would in- vent a way to get rid of peaches here this year would call forth the thanks of dealers It is unfortunate that they can't be sent by balloon to the late West whose peach orchards bear no longer They would serve a double purpose as ballast and freight while the coolness of the upper atmosphere would preserve their freshness in high flavor Peaches might be sent over night from New York to Chicago and the prevailing odor of the markets and wharves considerably improved by Venders bold very fair fruit at inflation Democracy of our State are like the Indian who would take one-third of his annuity in next a little more whisky and then the balance in whisky to square the accounts They want first of all more money next they want more money and finally they will take some more money to round out the platforms There is only one other way of putting it A mau who has got nothing pays with a due interest which when due is paid with another due adding compound interest and so on to the crack of doom above one Whatever not due LEA recovery is the latest news from

enterprising papers Cincinnati appear to have got hold that a inflation con- ference assembled In that city day The thing is supposed to be aged by leaders but inflationism will be the end-all of it It was engineered in New York The members of the conference are not gates from any organization or body but were invited or appointed to take part in the movement at their own ex- pense by a national invitation com- which was called into existence bv the convention of march last The con- ference which is to last several days is strictly private Its circular says that it would not in any sense be open to the public and that its conclusions would not be announced until after its adjournment Only authenticated members were to be admitted and all reporters are rigidly excluded THE mania for building and in o- collets has overtaken our civilized At South Canadian Indian Territory last week the corner stone of a female academy was laid with ceremonies hundreds of ple red and white being present and similar exercises are soon to take place in the same Territory at Muscogee when the of an al institution for the use of the kee Choctaw Chickasaw Creek and tribes will be placed in tion We presently expect to family of poor Lo as ornamented with titular literary nia as their pale face brethren of ten cents the half-peck piled and ning over while baskets are selling from fifty to sixty cents Peach ice cream is the popular delicacy with the comforting that pure fruit is used for flavoring it While ing of the products of this part of the country it may be mentioned that clams are unusually fine this season a fact which rejoices the hearts of mightily BUSINESS Were the season as propitious in business as it is in nature there would be nothing left to wish But the ghastly list of failures in each ing's papers makes business men look sick and there is a clenching of hands and looking out for the worst that is not healthy in the chill and fever weather of September The only people who look at all at ease are the bankrupts The worst is over with them and there remains the fresh start set off by the prospect of ing carefully all profits for years to come to pay in full the creditors who compounded for fifty cents ou the lar Every day brings its lists of failures This week the great book firm of Lee Shepard Boston went under taking with it their New York house ties assets not yet known But it is to the credit of our business men that they are doing everything in their power to raise the fallen firm and set it on its feet again The in New York who are the principal creditors say to them Pay can and go which they will do This is what honesty and in- is worth Shepard from no fault of their own and struggled desperately for three years before they went down They lost in good hard earned money in the Boston Ore and the de- pression in business and the shrinkage in values finally brought them to their knees The thousands of people who read Oliver Optic and the other authors they have brought out will be glad to know that they will probably resume in ten days Such men not Ions be kept down Friend Pitts the well-known Broadway ladies goods man went by the board Wednesday and Thursday Union Adams the better-known men's followed suit These are the best known but there are a dozen a day in the City But despite this the business men feel a slight revival of their hopes Whether last remains to be seen but it is certain that there is an in- crease in business for the week There are a great many merchant city and they are buying extensively They seem to be sorting rather than buying full stocks but even that is better than nothing The wheels are moving even if they do creak But I do not believe tuat New lork will ever have the trade it once to read the dailies with their lists of woe Since New York abolished the system of Metropolitan Police ed by a board controlled by the State Legislature at Albany too far off to be influenced by small local interests and j pat its safety into the hands of the low i ward politicians who control present j police appointments that not much better than that of ancient Sodom wishing to speak harshly of those who have suffered their fate I a week ago this on a rainy evening not long since a man walking down Lexington avenue one of the quietest streets of the town was set upon by two roughs one of whom snatched his handsome watch and chain worth five or siz hundred dollars The gentleman seized the thief and was getting the better of him when the policeman of the beat came up to the help of the began thumping him over the head with his club till he was forced to let go his hold of the robber who fled with his booty The gentleman made his way and entered his club covered with blood his head cut open by the blows a pretty picture for the centre of in the nineteenth century When he went to the inspector of police for redress he was called on to identify the policeman but as on the night of the assault that worthy had been wrapped in Havelock and waterproof it was impossible to detect bim and all the comfort the complainant had was a jeering laugh from the inspector and the brutal answer that he must have been too drunk that night to take care of his own watch and lost it Occurrences of this nature are be- coming alarmingly frequent The lice assert that the increase of crime is attributable to the number of men out ef work but they lie when they so say The work done by foot-pads and burglars shows the work of skilled men The fact is the police are in partnership with the thieves None are caught The burglars who killed Noe are still at large and no clue has been found to them and the same may be said of every case that has occurred The investigation now in progress will it is to be hoped do something toward remedying this perplexed condition of things No decent man feels safe at night in New York without his pistol or The hope of a better state of things is to have the present grow worse till honest citizens are obliged in self-defense to assert themselves and take the rule of the hands of the degraded reckless class who have got hold of it Ii good men are too busy or too careless to look after public interests there are plenty of worse ones who will be glad to do so THE DEATH OF BALSTON the San Francisco banker is not felt East as it is in the State where he was a leading power When the news of the failure of the Bank of California and the terrible death of its President came to the city there was a flutter but that was all California does her business direct with Europe ard Asia without the intervention of New York and failures there have but little effect here A few houses having branches in San Francisco were hurt and the Chinese residents of the city were touched but nothing serious happened Had such a failure occurred in St Louis or Chicago it would have shook things POLITICS John has locked horns with Tammany in dead earnest and there is going to be a struggle The and gambler heads one faction of the Democracy in this city and a much worse man heads the other hate each other so cordially that I don't believe it possible for them to tret together at all and if the ability of the city had sense enough to take advantage of the situation they might capture it and get decent once more But they won't do it They have their goods to sell Saratoga to visit and primary are things to age and so they will stick to their merchandise the thieves govern them At least this is what they have done and I see no tions of a change for the better Republican Meeting TML of the Will address the people on the issues of the day At Steubenville On Saturday September From the Platform adjoining Central Hotel
