Why, nays I, Capting Tyler, if you bring all hind of properly down to gold and silver, and measure it by that standard alone, and liavo no other kind of money, then I say, giving all the property in tho Union its fair chance, you could with ono year of your wages (which you have a right to take in gold) buy more property than you could shako n stick at. Now is tin! fair and reasonable ! Is it right and jut that this war of iiwifj against prjjirrty should go on till il gets to tcalpmg, or shall tho whole People by the duicrinacnt put a slop to it and bo adjust inaltors that "properly owners" and";i Miry oiciv en" shall both have a f lir chance ! If a man buys a firm and pays half down in cabh and mortgages the balance, and (Invent inent adopts measures that chauges money mat ters suddenly, and when pay day comes ho lln Js what was worth a dollar is not worth ten cents in "Constitutional money," away goes his farm snd lie is a beggar, ami just so it is with every body except tho shaver and the fat office holder. Thin might not to bo so and must not bo i-o. It is tlio duly of the (Jovcrinnont to prevent it and if the VtmitUution don't say so In to many words it only shows tint tho wiso folks who made it did not think noces.-ary to add to whit it does say that it was tho object and end of the l'coplo by their Government to make themselves as happy and prosperous as ihcy could.

It will not he before the Millennium at least. A serious question between England and tho United States is that growing out of the right of search. It is no new question cither, nnd and has already been tho subject of a long nnd expensive war. Tlio right of search was the groat question of llie war of IM'J, nnd the treaty of Ghent unfortunately passed over tho vexed question witliout a settlement. The outrage of England in claiming authority ovcr subjects born within her dominions, if found on board of Ameri can vessels, was not repeated after the war, hut tlio claim unfortunately was not given up. A new controversy now exist, in part involving the same principle, and in par making a new issue. The richl of search is practised as before, but for a new purpose, and so extensive has the practice become that it has aroused the pride and indignation of many of our people. The call for redress is indeed a general ono, and wo but seldom American minister nnd Lord I'lilniorslon and establishes n military dynasty, anil calls upon this subject, which will meet the public it centralism, ho is found to-morrow in tlia eye ns soon after tho meeting of Congress ranks of his oncrenes, because lie beliovos as Resolutions can bo introduced and that side iho most popular, and abusos with adopted calling for information.
