IiOWSIiL. James Russell Lowell is dead. He was in many respects the representative literary man of America. He has contributed extensively to all branches of light literature. He was a lecturer of the finest literary tastes who possessed a wonderful amount of popularity on both sides of the Atlantic. Mr. Lowell more than any other American literary man was a consmopolitan and equally at home anywhere in the world. Beginning as a comic and dialectic poet, he at once sprung into national fame. His Bigolow papers stand apart in American literature aa well as all other literatures. As a pout, Mr. Lowell did not stand in the front rank, although many of his productions contain an originality and irdividuallty which often reminds the reader of Browning's best works.1 His verse is always rugged, masculine sometimes even oppressive in its condensation ol thought. Ho belongs to ^he later class of rugged verse builders which Steadman has described so well. It is however, as an essay 1st that Mr. Lowell will bo longest remembered. His essays are models of   their   kind   although  a great r contrast to those of Ralph Waldo; Emerson. Like (Macaulay he is picturesque but unliko that; literary giant his style is almost faultless and his thought cogent, logical and atlluent, Emerson suggested but Lowell laid the whole subject liko a completed picture before the reader's vision. Emerson wrote for the thinker but Lowell for the literary man and the general reader.

Consequently no person ever dreamed that the United States, being a largo providence of silver, would demonitizo that metal and consider it as a mere commodity. By the demonetization act of 1872, silver depreciated in value, and by this monstrous act many people who held native silver and who had previously used it as money, were obliged to suffer great losses. All the free coinage advocates ask is that silver shall bo placed on a parity with gold, as it was previous to 1872. They ask that the government shall define or fix the value of an ounce of silver, as it does at present an ounce of  gold.

Last week a Chinese laundryman named Charles Wong was arrestnl on the henious charge of delivering a to increase tne volume of our circulating medium, there will be widespread tlnanclal disaster throughout the United States. For this reason it is necessary that the circulating medium be increased by the additional coinage of several million of silver dollars per month. If it were not for our extensive foreign trade, it might bo possible for business to bo conducted safely in the United States, without resorting to any extensive coinage of either gold or silver; But these two metals are tho recognized mediums of exchange throughout the civilized world, and they should at all times have a tlxed value. The stamp of our government stating that a piece of paper is worth a dollar makes it worth that amount in this country, and if it is convertible into a dollar of silver or gold, then it r is worth its face value in any country in the world.
