It only shows that a party which is press- ing its claims to popular confidence is utterly unable to agree upon the most inmortant issues before the country. sort of a fix would the people pHitUheir interests byCplacmg them under the control of men so distracted in counsels and so at variance in opin- ion Democrats at the East may squirm and protest because of our Bourbon platform. But if they are honest they must concede that the inflationists are supported by the Democracy in the South; that their outrageous principles were half endorsed by the Democracy in Iowa, and that many of the party leaders are vehement in demanding a soft-money plank in the national plat- form. Thurman had to retire from before a pressure which he could not resist. Gratz Brown, who had the sec- ond place on the Democratic-Liberal ticket two years ago, says he is willing to stand by Pendleton and the soft- money men. This is the way the mat- ter stands. It shows how little unity there is among those who make such a point of being a "national" organiza- tion. They cannot expect that the people will put their interests into the hands of men who do not know their own Hiinds, and who would run the Gov- ernment upon some patent plan intend- ed solely.to adjust party differences. Just such a position did the Democra- cy take in 1872, when they declared for free trade and supported a rabid big-tariff man. And so, in the event of the soft-money crowd controlling the national convention, the rest of the party would fall in, and try to make the people think that it was all right. But the intelligent, honest men of the country are not going to follow a party that will consent to an abomina- ble financial policy, because, as Chief- Justice Church, of New Yoi k, has said, it is "one of those compromises that have to be made." WE agree with the Chicago Inter- Ocean that the school question has en- tered into the canvass in the various States this year as a most important, indeed overshadowing element. Even the financial question, which is vical, has taken beside it a place that might almost be called secondary. As a plank in platforms embracing a variety of other questions, of course it cannot be acted upon at the polls with that distinctness and positiveness that it would if placed before the people as a single issue; but the Republican plat- forms ot our own State, Iowa and Cali- fornia, gain so much strength from it that the friends of the schools can be satisfied to have it met in this way. Speaking of its influence in this way, the Rochester (N. Express says: think that it may be considered pretty well settled that the Republi- cans will recover Ohio this fall. If they do so, no one Republican plank will have helped so materially to that result as that in favor of the free schools." JUDGE THUBMAN is a good Democrat, and the party have heretofore been telling us that he is the acutest lawver and most sagacious financier in the country. We make some quota- tions from the Judge: ''Inflation of the currency means that there shall never be any resump- tion at all." "Inflation means precisely demoney- tizing gold and silver in perpetuity, and substituting a currency of irre- deemable paper, based wholly and en- tirely upon Government credit, and depending upon the opinion and the interests of members of Congress and their hopes of popularity whether the volume of it shall be large or small. "Irredeemable currency is the most effective invention that ever the wit of man devised, to fertilize the rich man's field at the expense of the poor man's THE Democratic party insist that the 1000 million of dollars of national bank notes now in circulation should be withdrawn from business, thus sending a financial shock through the country that would result in more par- alysis than ever, and in place of this propose to have the Government enter upon an unlimited emission of legal- tender notes upon no other basis than credit of a promise to pay money which is not meant to be kept, the credit of a promise which is repu- diated before it is issued; the credit of dishonored notes, whose issue is a pledge that the issue shall continually increase, and that their depreciatio n shall have no end. i i ADVICES received by members of the Republican Congressional Committee from States where elections are to oc- cur next fall, nil agree that the pros- pects of the Republican candidates are excellent. The party is generally united and confident of victory. THE Paris Financial Journal is writ- ten up by five editors, who send their copy from their places of residence. In the number of June 19 the copy of each editor respectively was sent from a Paris prison. Banking is not so free over there._______ SAM CAKY favors rag currency, a cur- rency that reduces the people to rags WE have oar opinion of the prece- dent that is set by allowing pastors the privilege of browsing around their congregations, gathering in a rich har- vest of paroxysmal and inspirational kisses, then next having a notorious suit for adultery, and, finally, as a re- sult of these doubtful kind of tribula- tions, having the salary raised to per annum. At all events, we believe such a coarse of circum- stances would have a bad effect on lawyers or doctors; but then, of course, they are not constructed from the same kind of staunch moral timber that ministers and editors are. o THEY are a going to open up some more of the numerous mounds about Martin's Ferry, and endeavor 'to 'throw further light on that Prehistoric American civilization, known aa the Mound Builders. Wm. Allen might throw light also upon this race, whose relics are hoary with the antiquity of the pyramids.____________ THE united debt and taxation of New York city averages two hundred and fourteen dollars for every man, woman and child in the place.

Ah Enthusiastic Meeting of the Plymouth Mr. Beech- er's Salary Increased to One Hundred Thousand Dollars. NEW YOBK, July 7. A largely at- tended meeting of the Plymouth .Soci- ety, which is composed of the pew- holders of Plymouth Church, was held in the lecture room of the church this evening, with Mr. J. B. Hutchinson in the chair. The Chairman stated that the meeting liad been called for the purpose of considering the question of increasing Mr. Beecher's salary. Mr. W. Sage then offered a rosolu- tion to the effect that the salary of the pastor for the ensuing year be fixed at one hundred thousand dollars, instead of twenty thousand dollars, which it has hitherto been. This was seconded R. W. Page, after which R. W. Raymond made a lengthy address, in which he censured the ac- tion of the press very strongly. Re- porters he characterized as a perfect- nuisance, and said that they had all suffered by being interviewed by rep- resentatives of the press of the country. He related an anecdote of a reporter who endeavored to interview Mrs. Beecher. That lady, he said, after be- ing harrassed for some time by the questions of her inquisitor, asked him if he had a mother. The reporter re- plied that he Mrs. Beecher ask- ed him if she was not ashamed to have him engaged in such a disreputable business. The young man, said the speaker, did not reply to this question, but took up his hat and left the house. The interview not reported. Mr. S. B. White then delivered a brief and pertinent address in favor of the passage of the resection. He said that while the Investigating Commit- tee were sitting, Plymouth Church had made no effort to influence them in any way, and so it had been all through the trial. They had made no movement whatever towards in- fluencing the jury or anybody else in Mr. Beecher's behalf. Their time had not come until to-night, and now, said the speaker, we will show to the world that Plymouth Church can spend mil- lions in defense of her pastor's inno- cence, but not one dollar for blackmail or bribery. The resolution was then put to a vote and passed unanimously there being not one dissenting voice. There were about four-fifths of the pew holders of the church present at the meeting, which was a very enthusiastic one. It is generally understood among the congregation that this enormous salary is only for this year, and is mainly intended to help defray the ex- penses of the trial. __ _ THE TURF. KALAMAZOO RACES. DETROIT, MICH., July There was a large attendance at the races to-day, fully people being present. The first race was for a class with 6 entries. Grafton was the favorite and won the race. Time, 2 :27, 2 :24, 2 :26. In the 2 :44 race, General Mack sold as the favorite, and was winner in three straight heats. Time The last race will be concluded to- j morrow. Basil Duke and Richard have each two heats yet. Membrino Warner remains the favorite at two to one. There was considerable jockey- ing in this race. Time, Heavy Failures.

NEW YORK, July the further examination to-day of Jos. x Loeder, charged- with perjury and conspiracy, Rev. Henry Ward Beecher was called as a witness at the request of the Dis- trict Attorney. He looked over the" affidavit of Loeder, and was asked if any of the statements in the affidavit were true, Mr. Beecher replied that there is nothing that is true there as: alleged. He was then asked to read the affidavit made by Price, and he tes- tified that there was not one word of truth in ;the allegation respecting him in tbe affidavit. On cross-examina- tion, Beecher testified that he was un- guarded in His intercourse, and that it was his custom to salute his friends with a kiss; he had sometimes kissed Mrs. Tilton, and when he had been away for some time he kissed the Til- ton family all around; his visits to Mrs. Tilton sometimes lasted five min- utes and sometimes an hour; he thought it very likely that there was a sofa in Mrs. Tilton's parlor; and that he might have sat down upon it with her. District Attorney Britton said that he here proposed to rest the case of the people. General Fryor had been present, but he told him his testimony was not required. He took great pleasure in saying that there was not a shadow of reflection on Gen. Fryor in this case as counsel or otherwise; that gentleman was incapable of any improper connection with an affair of this kind. Moreover, he [had found in his investigation of this ease that Fryor was brought into it purely by an accident, and under carcumataacear which would deceive almost any one. Justice Riley exprenwd hia gratifi- cation with these? remrks. Loeder's counsel said Price was a man who had been, guilty of perjury, and he was the tone whom the prosecu- tion proposed to use as a witness. District Attorney denied this, saying he wished Price to be held with Loeder. He did sot propose to use the testimony ofan acknowledged per- juror, against another. Justice Riiey then committed Loeder and Price to await the action of the grand jury. The usual questions were asked the prisoners. Price acknowledging that he was guilty, and Loader pleading not guilty. Mr. Beecher was, before the grand jury to-day to testify in the Loeder and Price case. Mrs. Tilton will give her evidence to-morrow. Another affidavit from J. J. Price is published, giving the alleged detail of the method of getting' up the Loeder accusation" against Mr. Beecher. Price says that Loeder instructed him what :to-say and Morris paid him at various times sums of money to spend in liquors, cigars, Price again declares that the affidavit signed by him in Morris' office is false in every particular. He has never to his knowledge saw Mrs. Tilton. It is asserted by the Brooklyn Argus that Moulton will endeavor to secure the indictment of Mr. Beecher by the grand jury now in session for alleged perjury, and will summon the follow- ing witnesses: Mrs. Stan ton, Miss Anthony, Mrs. Bradshaw, Mrs. Moul- ton, Theodore Tilton, Mr. and Mrs. Richards, Henry C. Bowen, Mrs. Til- ton and others. TELEGRAPH SUMMARY. The Democratic State Executive Committee have decided to open the campaign at Gallipoils July 21st, with speeches by Governor Allen and Sen- ator Thurman. The recent heavy rains have so swol- len the streams in Southern Ohio that nine bridges have been carried away on the Portsmouth branch of the i- etta and Cincinnati railroad, and the track reported badly injured. A Brownsville special says the Col- lector of Customs received information that nineteen Mexicans crossed 400 head of cattle into Mexico nine miles below Kio Grande. Capt. McNeeley with the State troops did not reach the vicinity in time to capture them. A large concourse of people assem- bled at Findley, Ohio, to participate in the ceremony of unveiling the soldiers monument; aftar a grand, procession composed of the military, fire depart- ment, and others, the dedicary cere- monies began. The orators of the day were Hon. John F. Hunt, Gov. Allen and Gen. Hayes. Under the act of July pro- viding for the resumption of specie payment, the Treasury Department has disposed of about ten millions of bonds known as the 5 per authorized by the act of July 14, 1875, and with the proceeds has purchased about nine millions in silver, for the purpose of retiring fractional currency. The Cincinnati Commercial's special from Walton, Ky., says: As the hack for Williamstown, Ky., was standing in front of the Boone House, ready to start, Alexander Milner, formerly of Williamstown, stepped to the window to speak to some one inside, when the driver, Preston Webster, drew a pistol and without a word shot Mm dead. It is supposed that an old grudge led to the murder. No steps have been taken to arrest Webster. The parties for whom writs were is- sued Tuesday, charged with riotous conduct in attempting to destroy a saloon at WesterviHe, appeared in a justice's court yesterday, accompanied by over two hundred friends. The defendants were anxious to proceed to the trial, but as the prosecutor de- clared that he was not ready, the de- fendants waived an examination, and were bound over to court in the sum of The people of Westerville are fierce in their denunciation of Corbin, and declare that he placed the powder in his saloon which partly demolished the building on Monday evening. Two of the robbers who attempted to plaoder bank at Barre, Vermont, Tuesday night, took a traut at Rum- ney yesterday, bat seeing detectives on toMid, became frightened and jumped off. The train was stopped and run back. After an extended search one of the men-was found half a milejrom where hejmnped oft He was badly cat and bruised, and had concealed himself in the bushes. He was handcuffed'and taken to Rumney. While and others were looking for him his partner walked into the woods and disappeared. A general search is .being made, and it is not thought that he can escape. The Republican Convention which met in Madison, Wisconsin, among other things resolved that we favor an .early attainment of a currency convert- ible with coin, and therefore advocate a gradual resumption of specie pay- ments by continuous steps in that di- rection in such a manner as to disturb the business interests of the country as little as possible. That we are in favor of a tariff, for revenue only, so adjusted as to be the least burthen- some and most favorable to the inter- ests of Tabor and industry, and that we deserve such a revision of the pat- ent laws as will relieve industry from the oppression of monopolies, and at the same time secure to the inventor a fair remuneration and to the public the benefit of-the invention upon equi- ble terms. The St. Louis Republican's Kansas City special says that the recent severe storms caused terrible damage to the railroads in that 'State. On the line of the North Missouri road, near Brunswick, 100 miles of track are nnder water and the road is abandoned. No trains have passed since Sunday, and it will be impossible for them to be run before Friday. Hundreds of hogs, cattle and horses have been drowned, and the farmers have sus- tained heavy losses by the ravages of the flood, which far surpasses even that of 1844. Tuesdays train was sent out from Brunswick laden with boats to rescue the people who were imprisoned in their houses by the water. The company is making strenuous efforts to get the road in operation again. About o'clock Tuesday evening two German laborers visited the house of Mr. .Geisler, near Carsouville, about nine miles west of St. Louis, and in a very rough "manner demanded wine. Geisler produced some, which the men drank, and then asked for more, which Geisler refused. Geisler also sent one of his children for Mr. Schulenburg, his son-in-law, who was working in the field. On Sehnlenburg's arrival at the house, he ordered the men to leave the place, which they refused to do and assailed 'and gave him a severe beat- ing. His cries for help brought a man from the field to his assistance. After being released from his assailants, Schulenburg got his shot-gun from the house and drove the men from the place. Not long after, however, they returned and attacked Schulenburg, one of them with a knife, whereupon Schulenburg seized a heavy hoe and dealt the man a terrible blow on the head, from which he died in a short time. The Democracy in Convention. ST. PACX, MINN., July Dem- ocratic State Convention spent most of the afternoon in discussing the finan- cial plank of the platform. Finally the specie payment men prevailed over the expansionists by a large majority, The following are the more important planks of the platform adopted: Resolved 1. That the adoption of the Fourteenth, Fifteenth and Sixteenth Amendments to the Federal Constitu- tion closed a great era in our politics, and marked the end forever of human slavery and of the struggles that grew out of that system. These amend- ments have been accepted in good faith by all the political organizations and the people of all sections. Here- iiiler all parties must stand upon them and our politics must turn on ques- tions of the present and future, and not upon those of the settled and final past. 2. That we are opposed to all at- tempts to limit the freedom of the press of the country. 3. A return to gold and silver as a basis of the currency of the country, with preparatory and effective meas- ures to secure a resumption of specie payments. A tariff for revenue only consist- ent with an honest none for protection; no government partnership with protected monopolies. 5. Equal and exact justice to all men; no partial legislation, no partial taxation. 6. Freemen; uniform excise laws; no sumptuary laws. 7. Official accountability enforced by better civil and criminal remedies; no private use of public funds by public officers, and the strictest economy in all public affairs, 8. The party in power responsible for the administration of the govern ment while in power. 9. That ail corporations chartered or recognized by the State should at all tiroes be supervisable by the State m the- interests and for the protection of the j'tople against unjust discrimi- nation M ci extortionate demands. Af'f. the adoption of the platform the >jr.vntion made the following nom n.itiuas, E. M. Wilson, of Min- neapolis, having formally declined to be-a candidate for any position: For Governor D. L. Buell; Lieutenant Governor, E. W. Durant; Secretary of State, Adolphus Birman; State Audit- or M. Doran; State Treasurer, Albert Scheffer; Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, L. Emmett; Railroad Commis- sioner, J. W. Sercerbox; Attorney General, R. Jones. The Convention appeared to be en- tirely harmonious.
