THE NATIONAL DEBT. x sin response to the demand of the democ- racy of the West that the 6-20 bonds whose interest is payable in gold at 6 per cent. should be redeemed in legal tender notes at the expiration of five which as their name may be done at the option of the government in from five to twenty the radical press of the country are raising a howl of horror and indignation at the on they of the inflation it will cause to the we would have too much and that greenbacks would not be worth ten ceils on the dollar in This cry is Poll-Parroted of course from the bond-holders by the radical press who are their suppliant tools.

Upon such a basis a party will live through all as strong in de- feat as in victory. No pledges were ever demanded or taken by Andrew Johnson what any democrat could have heartily taken and lence he has differed with the party that elected him. He stands to-day alone out a to and none adhering to only to the organic law of the and the people of all parties to sustain him in the rectitude of lis intentions.

Boons AND AT Stewart Reynolds' HARD WARE The President aud Crisis. The excutive and legislative departments of the government which have so long been at variance have finally come into no. tual the shock of which causes fearful forebodings as to the stability of re- publican institution. As the rumbling of distant thunder is often the precursor of a coming so the conflict that has .been raging in the political elements of the dominant party at Washington for the last tihree which was feared might termi- nate in a conflict of but hoped might be .-averted by the small amount of patriotism and wisdom .needed in such an wae the shtire precursor of the crisis is now upon us. The Preident has ordered the Secretary of War to vacate his office and diliver his portfoio over to a successor whom the President had designat- ed. The Secretary of War refused to obey individival designated by the Presi- dent was and a resolution of im- peachment httt passed the for this alledged and the President will be arraingned before the bar of the Sen- ate for ihe trial.

The democratic party are not pledged to the sup- port of Andrew nor ia it responsi- ble for bis acts will neither prosecute nor defend but AS individuals they can express their opinions of the situation w 10 not of their making. He is in the hands of his who nominated him at Balti- more. Herein is a lesson that the radical party ean profit by if they will. The President is not sought to be impeached for any crime or as but it is because he was the man of their choice and refused to carry out the policy of the party that elected him. This is the gist of ihe whole matter. To avoid such catastropHies as they have teen repeatedly they should in ihe first piece have and these too should be out and ausseptabli of no two these principle should be adhered and in the selection o The Proprieties of Journalism.
