Nii i Iii a in Orient Tetter from Secretary Mccall oct. A Washington dispatch of the 7th, says the Secretary of the Treasury this morning addressed an important letter to a gentleman in new York in relation to our finances of which Tho following is a copy Treasury department oct 7. Dear sir your Favoron the 4th inst. Is received. Too much importance is attached to the utterance to which you refer. Tho people of Tho United states Are All As sound on Tho question of Tho preservation of Tho National Faith As they Wero upon Tho question of Tho preservation of the Union. Consider Tho Faith of government pledged to pay the five Twenty Bonds when they Are paid in Coin. There need not i think Beany apprehension that they will to called in at the expiration of five years from their respective dates and paid in United states notes. A United states notes Wero issued under the pressure of great necessity and Are by authority of Congress being rapidly withdrawn from circulation. No More can to issued under the existing Laws nor can i believe that any considerable number of members of Congress would favor an additional Tsuo for any purpose whatever much less for Tho purpose of paying Bonds in violation of Tho express understanding under which they were negotiated the policy of contracting the circulation of United states notes adopted by Congress and being steadily pursued by Tho Secretary should of itself even if the Honor of the nation were not involved in Tho question satisfy Tho holders. That Tho 5-20 Bonds will not to called in and. Paid before maturity in depreciated currency. Very truly yours signed h. Mcculloch Secretary. Political to the proposed convention in Georgia the Griffin Star says so far As we Havo been Able to learn through our Georgia exchanges Tho conservatives Are pretty generally settling Down upon Tho following policy to wit a i o Voto for the Ablest and inst available conservative candidate and not to vote at All on the convention question. We Are inclined to think that this is he Best policy provided the conservatives can All be United upon it. A. A Western democratic paper says Tho democratic Voto in Ohio would have been increased by ten thousand if Vallandigham had remained at Home and kept his lips sealed. The state committee did try to suppress him but the democratic masses would Havo him on the stump. Sex congressman Grinnell Radical of Iowa has written a letter giving his favourable estimate of general Grant. He says i read the flashing of his Eye with Delight at Tho last session listening to such a speech As that of governor Boutwe. To came on. Our Side and i never saw him on the other. Nor did Tho democrats extend him salutations. To my knowledge he was in deep sympathy with general Howard in his Plana and administration. To did not fight to Savo slavery and when it was dead he joined Congress in Tho wish that impartial Justice might be secured which was a certain condition of Power and National Prosperity. A b. H. Hill of Georgia has written another letter on the situation taking up in the present chapter the recent elections to regards them As evidence that the a great reaction Quot has certainly commenced. A dastardly act of desecration. Gravo of Captain William Jav Curtin who died in 1828, was opened in Linden Grove cemetery Kentucky on thursday night last by some wretch or Hyena in human form who brat open the Stone coffin containing Tho remains of the deceased exposing Tho Bones to View. A Captain Martin was of Inorg Tho first settlers of Kentucky having Como to the Stato in 1786. To died on Hia farm now known As the Howell farm and was buried in Hia family it graveyard in 1828. It his son Hiram Martin a removed the remains from there in 1851, and kept them at his own residence until 1861, when they Wero consigned to a Stone coffin and buried in Linden Grove cemetery where they have remained Over since until disturbed As above stated. The Obj act of the villain or villains was probably to obtain Gold a Largo amount of which it was very foolishly rumoured a for years ago had been buried with a his body.
