nswrcßUCATions. THE SCIENCE OP-WEAETH: A Manml of * Political' Economy, : embracing the or . Trade. Cwtcuct and Finance. By Ax&ei Walksb. Lecturer on Public Bcooonj In An betel College. Cloth, 4™. Prtcc» S 3. Boston: Little Brown <& Co.- Sold by Callaghan & Cniler; Chicago. It U claimed by some oftho grcntcalmmdfl that no science he® so Intimate a relation to the destiny of mankind as political ccimomy; and yet it I® believed to bare no concern ■with the morality of the race* Either) therefore, the moral® of men are not subject to law®, or Ibey havellttle affinity to human destiny, or the economist® have put too high n value upon the science of wealth. The truth is, the picacbcr and the material scientist dp cot occupy antagonistic positions; and most of the better sort of moralists have been deeply read in the new sc’cocc, Raskin to the contrary notwithstanding. <ln Dr. Chal mer'a work on the subject bo says: u Wc cannot bid adieu to political economy without on earnest recommendation of Us lessons to nil who enter upon the ecclesias tical profession ; M nod while bolding the chair of divinity in the Vuivcrslly of Edin burgh he delivered lectures on the subject i« his pupils. Bolter. Dr. Uclhune fills U “Unit philanthropic science which, next to the Oospcl, whose legitimate offspring it is, will do more limn anything else for the ele vation am!

That la the mmt of men for any hninonUarhm effort, ttic Uibt mid heal (ptalidcalion for all useful iiiiiulure. Tin- uiithor divides hid suhjact Into five books. In Ihe first he defines ttie terms used in discussing the laws whl-U govern the pro duction and consumption of wealth. The science is positive, became man is always Iu want and nature is comtant in her supply. Wuilth includes all article® of value; and all objects ofbmnan desire, obtained by hu man effort, have value and none else. It is the rclat ion of two services, the exchange j power of commodities. TLe blind man says ! lo the paralytic, “I have limbs; you have eyes—3 will carry you; you «hall be my guide.*’ Their services are raltud by each other, Just as the bootmaker give® a pair of boots tor a coat. Nature adds value to nothing. She creates utilities beyond 1 computation; but she docs it gra tuitously. There is no value with out work. __ Labor is the voluntary cutirt to produce objects of di*sirc. Slaves arc owned like bor-cs ana oxen, and their task is not labor but so much capital, which again is nothing but the accumulated labor oir the past* There is no rcalantagonism be tween labor and capital, though they have coroe to be very distinct. Both arc interest ed. They are partners ; and the only trouble Is that capital takes too large a share. They ought to be fair coopcralors. Production is divided into transmutation by the faiaier. transformation by the manu facturer, and tiansportailon by tbo mer chant. The conditions ot‘ the highest pro duction arc the division of labor, the co-op eration of capital and economic culture. Di vision of labor gives increased dexterity and a better knowledge of business ; it saves lime; it facilitates tho invention of tools ;it secures better adaptation of abilities ; it in creases tbe power of production ; it shortens apprenticeship, aul it aids social develop ment. All capital is .wealth, but all wealth is not capital; for capital Is such port of wealth at is employed in rc.prodution. It arises from the net savieg* of lab ;r, and , wastes without U. Tbe two co-operate where a due proportion of each Is louud. Labor Is more fixed than capital, because the former depends upon the Increase of population, while tbe later may, under favorable circum stances, be very rapidly accumulated aud in other eases just as rapid«y wasted or dis persed. Capital should, at least, increase In a degree corresponding to the increase ol population. 11 it do'uol, labor i& crippled, wages fall, and starvation approaches. Ire- is an illustration. Four millions of pounds a year passes out of the country to landlord absentees without a shilling o:‘ re turn, aud eight milliots sterling arc taken by taxation. The people multiply, but can make no savings. Tbe inevitable late, if there be no heroic remedy, is starvation or emigration. Exchange brings the man some object of Lis desire for something he docs not want: aud it lias its origin in the division of labor. Trade is tbe sum of all exchanges. It is ex change realized. Commerce is foreign or international trade. Thu'wealth of a com munity is not determined by the extent of tchli trade. Ohio is vastly more wealthy than Rhode Island, though the latter has a larger exportation. A Slate sells that which it can spare; and other things being equal, the mm or people whose productions differ widest will trade most with one another. Tailors do not traffic with tall *re, Illinois docs not. trade with Indiana, Sweden and Prussia have UUlc commerce, but both trade with the West Indies. The character of every country’ll products h determined by its soli and physical con formation, its climate, Its difference of race audits social condition,. China produces silk and tea ; Cuba, sugar ; Sicily, oranges ; America, grain 'and cotton. Suppose our } 'topic should attempt to produce oranges. It could he done, but at a cost of n bushel ot wheat for every orange. The demand would be met'; but few oranges would be ■wanted, The divUlon of labor, which we fonnd to he so bcnctU-ial Individually, i* equally true in application to communities; Indeed, Us necessity In relation to the latter Is more positive, for there is greater dUttactkcncss among national productions than among those of Individual men. That would he a hold philosopher who should declare a country one-sided that docs not produce everything it consumes. It not only pays best hut is highly desirable on many accounts that countries should develop their own distinctive productions to the pSrtlal-ne glect of other*. Every nation Is useful to every other. All are Injured by one another's calamities. Not a savage of Abyssinia or , New Zealand that wears a rag of cotton about him -but suffered from the {treat rebel lion. But many obstacles interfere to hin der that extent of international exchange which Is known to be of the utmost utility. Those impediments are physical or natural, social or incidental, and legal or conventional. Vermont wheat has a natural protection against that of Illinois, because the distance Is considerable and freight high. This pro tection of locality builds up in every country a large number of Industries. The people of every nation must erect their own houses. For the same cause mining and manufacturing interests grow up. But this condition is nature’s; and man can only bring countries nearer together by quick and cheap transportation. The slave holder's re bellion is the best Illustration of the social or political obstacle to trade. The produc tion and sale of cotton was.almost entirely stopped ; and no more complete protection to the planters of India could have been devised. If the. Gulf of Mexico were so infested with pirates as to double the price of sugar in New York it would operate as a protection to the maple sugar of the Green Mountains. But the conventional you-yole for-me-and-I'll -rote-for-you protection is, according to Mr. Walker, the one great curse to both commerce and manufactures. This is effected cither by the prohibition of Imports, or by a direct premium on the pro ducts of home industry* or by the Imposition of discriminating duties upon the foreign article. The Orel Is outrageous. The sec ond, tbougWhe most economical method of favoring axflass, is not in lasblon among the “ powers that he." The third Is In vogue In this country at the present lime. Mr. Wakler's argument runs thus : Legis lative protection does not increase capital • a law cannot create capital; since, if it could, there would ba no necessity fur any other labor than'that of legislation; and. In order to grow rich, a nation would have nolhirg to do but meet la public assembly, and spend its whole time inznsklngandhcar* ing speeches, and enact lug laws. Neither can protection attract foreign capital, for that depends not upon the statute book, but upon the rate of interest and the security of property, both ol which arc considerably disturbed In Ihofrcertalnty by any artificial ? meddling with Ibe lflws of trade., And if the general average of profits could be : raised by a restrictive tariff;' as the Protec-' iionhta say, then let Government place auQl cient restriction or tariff to carry profits np: to a hundred per cent, and when all trade > has coated everybody’s profits will bo Im- ( menso I ' Nor can' such legislation increase | the number of laborers; for that is as the j number of Inhabitants, and politicians can- 1 not legislate men Into being. If food bo cheap • population will increase. The higher the wa ges the Wore laborers. The foreign working.! wan will corofi here If ho'can gel bettor pay; > not otherwise. But protection changes only ! the mode oflal)or;it takes men from one In- ; duutry and employs them upon another. gjf, • then,one class of workmen bo thus encouraged to emigrate nil others arc discouraged. In ' like in turner the Increased stimulus which Is fald to he imparted to the protected in dtistry has Us corollary In corrcspoudlng de pression ns to other industries. It may add an Immediate Impetus to the manufacture of woollen goods If the price doubled by stop, plug importation, but the man who buys them must suffer In proportion to the ben. efit of tlio favored 'producer. Government possesses nothing. All H docs is io Irons for revenue from one cltlr.cn to another, take money out of one man’s pocket and put it in Unit of another, Just because the latter Is rich enough mid base eunuch to buy u tar* Iff bill through the Legislature. But again, as the price of tbtl article Is Increased, the demand for Uls diminished. This Is Inevlla* hie, whatever ho Ihu disguise under which It I* brought about. Li-sstlioproteeludarttctu Is produced. Thu demand for labor falls; the price of labor Is diminished; and tlio Mltiinlus (o labor Is decreased. it must ho cunulinUd, (horulhro, that in, (ho long run the waiiuftu'lurvr will not ho puiimnuittly benolUod, for his profits must evuiiuully find the general level of other employments; and that (ho diminished eon. sumption created by the higher price under protection will rnlso the cost of living and diminish the wages of workmen. Protec tion reduces the profits of capital and labor In thou hole community lower than their normul CLiidltiun, for Us fundamental prin ciple ts to rclhso In nvutlimireolvcs of the wealth of the milsldo world. Uonco the protected claspus themselves suffer by their own net, and liko the drunkard begin to ask tbr tuurj ruin, or more protection, as tbo ease may be, llcnco It ts that no amount of protection Is (bund to satisfy the protected trades mure limn two or three years. Tlio Inure they violate nature’s laws, the more resolutely nature vlndieules them. The author has given much attention to (he eurieney and trade and business gene, rally. Taxation, almost a new fraluto in Ah'eik'an economy, is healed at considera; Ide b imlh.

A few articles of value may endure for centu ries; but, in the average, their term is very tOiorl. Simply by wear and tear, the earth would be left, destitute in a few years, if no provision were made for reproduction. Our kind Is placed on the verge ol such a change, and can never go away from it. The dreary desolation of many nations illustrates the tremendous possibilities that lie la tbo use made of wealth. There is no economical reason why every people on the face of the earth should not be rich, prosperous aud In deperdent; every person free, comfortable, &4Ptiou6, with plenty at band and every* thing to hope fur. As It is, the homes of competence and decency arc, the world over, hardly more than islands struggling up from the ocean; a few spots redeemed from misery and ruin.” THE SATIOXAL SITUATION. Extract from Ciorernor Geary’s lnau< gural tnc&sage* The following are the concluding sentences of Governor Geary’s message, delivered to the Pennsylvania Legislature on Wednesday Ids! : We arc confessedly in A transition state. It is marvellous bow prejudice has perished in the fur* nsec of war, ana bow, fium the very ashes of old hatred*:'and old panics, the truth fires purified and triumphant. The consent between th* Exccu ilve and a i engross twice elected by suoslautiaily the same suffrages—a contest t-o anomalous la our experience as not to have been anticipated by the framers of the National Constitution—has only served to develop the remarkable energies of our peop.c. and to strengthen them lor tuiare con* Diets That contest is virtually decided. The victorious forces, physical aud moral, of the patriotic tnUtons, are etmpiy pausing before they i cricct the woikcf reconstru-Utm. Twenty tlx Slates have not only been save i from the con flagration of war, but bare been cryetaMr.ed In the eavne. The ten stilt disaffected and still defiant, seem to be providentially delaying Iheir icinni to the Union, so that when they re enter upon the obUtrn tons and tea blowings, they will be ihc better able to fulfil the oae and enjoy the other. Their condition l» a fcsrtnl warning to men acdnallons, end especially to out selves. Übtll slavery lell we did not fully understand the value or lepnbllcan Institutions. Accus tomed to tolerate, and in many casus to detenu, slavery, we did not feel that its close proximity, so far from assisting- was gradually destroying onr liberties; ana U was only when rebellion toie away the mask that we saw the htdeons tcainres of the monbtertLat was eating out the vitals of the Republic. It we ate now astonished and shocked atth' ex hibition o: cruelty amt ingratitude among those who having Jnauguratca and pros*cutc*l a cause less war against a gcucroiH Government, and bav- mg been permitted to escape the uaclshmcntiher deserve, arc once more arrogantly clamoring to assume control ot the destinies of this great na- tion, bow moth grealei cause would we hav e had for surprise baa *la very been peimti<cd to in ciease and multiply? Boast as womayofour matcri-il and onr moral victories, yet is it not true that there is no such thing os a republican Government in the ten Htctcs(tbat began and carri don the war? There Is uoi, to-day, a despotic State in Kmope where the rights of the individual man arc so defiantly trampled under toot a* in sections which were supposed to have been brought Into full submis sion to the Government ot the Unltt-d States. But the ducaso has suggested its providential cure. The abhorrent doctrine that dticsted treason shall not only be magnanimously pardoned, but Inltodnccd to yet stronger privileges because of its guilty failure, seems to have been Insisted npop, as 11 to strengthen the better and the con trastirg doctrine that n ration, having conquered Ua freedom, is Sts own best guardian, and that (Lose who were defeated In honorable battle should be constrained to submit to all the terms of the conqueror. The violators of the most solemn obligations, the pcipetrators ofllic moat atrocious crimes in tbc annal* of time, the murderers of our heroic soldiers on Helds of battle, and in loathsome dun* peons and barbarous prisons, they must not, stall not reappear m the council chambers of the na tion, to aid in its legislation or control its dcstl* nice, miles* it shall be on conditions winch will preserve onr institutions from their hateful pur poses and influence, nnd secure republican forms of Government, tu their purity and vigor, .In every section oi the country. *— That they are indisposed to accept sorb condi tions is manifest from their recent and even arro gant rejection ol ihc proposed amendments of the National Constitution—amendments which arc believed, by many true and patriotic cltlrons and statesmen, to be too mild ond grucron-. They have, however, been fully considered by the people during the late elections, and approved by majorities so large as to give tnom a sanction which it would l»o Improper to either overlook or disregard. And certainly, in view ol this fact, none of the laic rebel States should bo admitted to their former “practical rclaMons” to the general Government while 4hey continue to op jkisu these amendments. A Tragic Aflblr In Cincinnati. (From the Cincinnati Commercial, January 17.] Coroner Emmert commenced an inquest yesterday rooming at bis oillcc, No. 1(1 Court House, on the body of Mury J. Thompson, late a resident at No. 212 Bnyculller street. The inquest was instituted upon Information that a hasty burin) o! the deceased was about to be made, whereupon the Coroner stayed thatjirocecdiug and entered upon the lares* The skull of tbo girl was found mashed In os li by a heavy weapon, and other marks of violence were found upon her body. This Is the extent of the Investigation vcslcrday, but It will be resumed at the Coroner’s ollice this morning at nine o’clock. It Is rumored that Miss Thompson had In the Intlmacv of a married man, whleu coming to the knowlegc of his wile, excited her Jealousy to such a decree that she threatened ix> km the girl If she ever knew her to speak to her husband again. Dis* recording the threat, however, the Intimacy continued until Monday, when the outraged wile sought and found an opportunity to confirm her suspicions and wreak her ven geance. She caw her husband cuter the girl's house from a neighboring locality selected for the purpose. and immediately followed him, obtained entrance into tbc and : caught the guilty pair in confidential and in timate conversation. Kuraor farther says Miss Thompson seised a poker to defend herself, but the superior strength of the infuriated wife enabled her to wrench it from her grasp, and with a sin* gle blow she laid her bated rival dead at her leet. The tragic event with its terribly mortify ing circumstances was taken In at a glance by the friends or relatives of the girl, and by the husband and wife, and It was agreed by all to bush tbc matter up ; hence the effort at hasty burial and the general air of sus picion it wore, the Information to the Cor oner ond the decision that a post mortem ex amination would be made to-day. The developments will be looked forwlth intense Interest, for, not since the murder of Kate Bureau has a circumstance of a more tragic character transpired In this city. A licnglliy Foot Knee. (Nashville (Tenn.] Despatch (Jannartf 14) to the Cincinnati Commercial.! An extraordinary foot race will take place next Saturday. Two well known German citizens of Nashville have made a bet of one thousand dollars a side, and the money has been already staked, on a foot race between them from this city to Murfreesboro, some thirty-two miles distant. The terms are that each contestant shall be at liberty to take the pike or pursue any more desirable route to the point of destination; that nei ther shall taste food from the moment of commencing the race until Its completion, and that the one who shall first report at Murfreesboro is to be considered tbc winner and lake tbc money.

A> The Half Orphan Asylum, Editors Tribune: Ibe statement made in your issue ofthcl&h inst., that u a very general feeling exists among the residents in the vicinity ol :ho Half Orphan (located on the comer of Franklin and Wiscon sin streets) that the Institution should bore moved to some other location, because that when ever a disease breaks on| la Uio Asylum, which is rot seldom, it invariably extends to families outside the walls," calls for explanation and correction. The Uaif Orphan Asylum is an Institution under the care ol a very clllcionl Board of Lady Managers, representing tbc leading Evangelical Chuichc* of the city, has been In existence tor over seven years, has had under its care and train ing over one thousand destitute nnd needy half orphan children. Is sustained by the Christian lib craiity of our citircns, and is watched over with great interest and care, and has done and U doing a very important work. Nothing should be said or done, therefore, without thorough knowledge of the facta in the case, calculated to impair confidence in or binder the usefulness ol a benevolent enterprise of such ImpoiUnce. In ragard to the complaint made, as above stated, toe Board of Managers bad no intimation ol its existence prior to the publication of the statements to that effect In your paper, and they have had many assurances directly to the con tiury. 'I bo statement that whenever a disease breaks ont In the Asylum, which la cot seldom, it in variably extends to families outside the walls, they know to be untrue. Tbc institution has been In lie present location abortl> two years. During that time 11 has been remarkably exempt from the contagious complaints incident to childhood. There has not been a single care of scarlet fever or measles in the bnUdi' g. 1 hero wire a lew cases ot cholera, which It la held Is not contagions, and there were within a few weeks past two cases of email pox, and five or six cases of varfoloid. All.lbnt could be re moved, so soon as the disease made Us appear ance, veront once taken to (he nest house, and the two that could not ho removed, wera carefully , pursed, and have recovered, and ail the others weto at once carefully vaccinated. No new case has occurred, and the house and all the clothing has been thoroughly cleansed and fumigated, and the institution has been wholly free from the dis ease for two weeks. And after diligent Inquiry tbc laoy managers have been unable to find a single case of small pox or vario loid, or of any other disease, which baa been communicated from the Institution to env one in the neighborhood. A health officer bos nulled the institution with in a few days, and expressed himself not only satisCed,bul greatly gratUU d w Ufa the neft*, health ful, ard comfortable condition of all In the build ing. 7 be Institution has had during tin* greater part of the last year about seventy children under Us cat c. It ha»in Its employs matron, a teach er, ana six female servants. No institution of the kind in on’ city Is more care fully watched over, and kept in a more perfectly healthful and cleanly condition. It Is in all respects a comfortable Christian home for the poor and destitute little ones tak»n under its care. Is Bedalt or tux Boass or Masagkiw. Tlie Catholic Poor and the Y. HI. C. A To tho Editor of the Chicago Tribune: In your issue ot last Sunday, Mr. O. C. Gibbs, ot the Young Men's ChtUtlan Association, In answer to a charge of sectarian partiality in dis tributing tl«- relief funds of that organisation, has collated several t mistical items concerning tho distribution ofpnblir charities, and took occasion to make some animadversions on Catholics and Ibclr religion, which 1 have taken pains lo revise, and beg leave ro oscr to the public tbe following rtCicnons: Ibe cist of the writer's computation maybe elated briefly as follows: Estimating tbe total number of Catholics in the city at sixty thousand, and the whole amount-’ of relict at f/i 1.000, he states that of this sum $40,150 arc distributed to Caibolics as follows: Bv the Young ileu s Christian Asrodahon.l 7,500 By tie St. Vincent dc Paul Society 16,000 By the County Agent 17,250 Total .? 10,750 The gentleman suggests the following reflection founded on the foregoing: “Uow fiir may that Cburch (Catholic) be held responsible for this state of poverty, etc." And again ho ventures the opinion that tbe Catholic poor “shall bo ald-d, I/' at Oil, by their own Church, of whose teachings tiny may bo regarded as the legitimate fruits, alr.ee they most abound where Catholicism holds nrdisputed sway, as In Ireland, Italy.’’ etc. Passing over toe statistics ns given above, let ns fircmlsc a lew observations. There la not the cast doubt but tbal tbe great majority of the Catholic population of Ibis city Is composed 01 emigrants ft cm Ireland and other portions of Europe. That emigrants, as a general rule, are poor. Is not to be questioned, and hence that the Catholics of Chicago arc Individually the poorest of all religionists found in this city, no ouo need dispute. They arc generally of the laboring daises, who bad Just acquned sufficient means to land them on the free soil of America, which they love, and which they had heard of id their Euro pean home as tbe “beautiful land of the West.'* I think tbal by tar the greater portion of onr labor ing population is made up of Catholic foreigners. Now It would bo reasona ble to expect that the greater number of cases 01 destitution found In Chicago would be among this foreign Catholic laboring class, and we sec no reason to wonder—as the gentleman Is of opinion— that 68 3 3 per cent, or even more, of. the charity /onda of Uij cltr—kom every.aoorco wonld he distributed amongst tlnm. ’the rich abonld support the destitute poor.anJ, ereoxp-cled to do so In every civilized country, and that Independent of religion* belief aa3 pro bation. ibe business men of Chicago, aa Mr. Gibbs remarks, have con-ribuled to make 'np a •city relief land, sod committed It to (be Christian AeeoclalJO to b* distributee ; and would It not appear reasonable that more than half of that fund wonld be divided among the poor, scoring classes wnlcb arc mainly Cataolic—ln place or ui.lya'llKle ovr one-fourth? Bat moreover ll Is coteworlby that sixteen of the forty thousand dlelrlhircd to indigent Catholic*, are contrlbai-d by M o fcllow-mi-mbcn of tnelr own communion. HV hare nude no distinction between tbo poor as to rillglon In distributing our fund*, nor kept lists ofihe cambers of the various aa shiedbytbo Vincent deFaul Society, and hence wo can certainly claim that if the Association ha* given onc-lotut of its foods lo Catholics, and care fully kept record of religious distinction, that we who pave distributed without dint notion, have given i>> ibe some proportion at least (4,000 to con-CathoUcs In Ilea of the 17,500 distributed by the Association. But Ido beg leave of Mr. Gibbs to lake exception to that Item ot (7,500 which he >ays was distributed among Catholics. It appears that after keeping a list of the number of Catho lics relieved, bo takes half of the number who arc marked "religious faith unknown, 1 ' amounting to C®3, and courts (hem a* Catholic, lean see no reason for admitting this, and herd claim that the contribution of the Catholics shunld be re* dneed ot e-baif. and that In place of *7.500 Mr. CJlbbf should nave staled that about (3,733 were distributed to Catholics—a less emu than wo can suppose nas distributed by the Vincent do Paul Society lo Indigent tion-Cotaolica. Nor need Mr. Globs remark that only “a single case of the fatho’lc society relieving outside of its commun ion” has come lo tils knowledge, for tho writer can with (he same confidence aCirm that although lie has had not a little (o do with caring lor the poor, he terur beard of a single Instance in wlnch Hie Association relieved an Indigent Catholic, Although be has no duttbl that it did so. atd vould he far (torn questioning Mr, Gibbs’ slntemriit. 11 1b dißOcrcrnbl? to ho obliged to cutor Into Hippo dclniKnfd I rc«rot tliat tltogrtiUoman rop* rtnnikig Hie Association thmuHii U well to ro* Hod kO Bcvcrplf oo Hie Catholic *'liitrcti to nomo of Mb remarks.

P. D. FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL MONETARY. Pbidat Evening, January 18. ISt7. In this morning's Tribukz was published in fall, Mr. Randall's hill, which substitutes a new ia?ue of three hundred millions of legal tenders, to take the place of the National Bask currency, and requires the hanks to give up the bonds, de posited as security for the circulation and take in exchange therefor the proposed issue of "green backs.' 1 This bill la the embodiment ofacom paratlvcly old Idea. In November, 1865, latlcll’s living Age,submitted to Congress the following: WHAT TUZ SA7IOAAZ. TUJVK BY STEM THU. COST TUB uxrrso states. "In return wo ect noMag: lor the greenbacks ere a better and more popular currency than the not’sol the banks, which owe their circulation and credit entirely to the United States endorse tiienf. '• From January, 19C6, to the same date in 186 T, the banks will receive from the Treasury lutcresl on 3to million bonds—l3m. "In 1663 the banks will get Interest on that Ira., and again on the 300 m., iSm., making Him.- 37. "In ISGH the banks wilt set late cston that 2m., and again on the 300 m., 18m., making 20m.=5«. “ Xu 1B:0 the hanks will get interest on tbat3m., and again ontncSOPm., 13m., making 21m.=73. “And so on, acm in 1000 the case will stand lima: •• in ]OO6 (he banks win pet interest on that Iftm., and again on the 300 m., ISm., making 17-:m.=2,TW ‘•Here is proof that in forty years the amount (bus gratuitously presented to these put banka would pay the whole war debt. This calculation is won the enpivoslUcn that the present limit of Bank Notes to fdOO.COO.UCO shall he maintained. A clamor is already rising for Its extension. Woudilnolbc butter to keep tor the nation the >rofil of Its currency, and make Of It a Sinking ?und which would untie its hands and lift tue burden of taxation entirely in little more than a generation? “ilus could bo done by anthorlzicg the "Treasury to issue greenbacks to all applicants in rtfumforNaQouai Bank Notes, the notes so re ceived to be presentea to vhe banks lor payment — which would be out of th ’ SUO.WW.OvO bonds— which bonds, ns received, anonldbe piss’d over to the Kinking Fund. This operation would not m any degree disturb the currency or trade. “All of which Is respectfully submitted to the Trcosuiy Dcpartmcnland to Congress, by •• £, Little.” No donbt the great mass of the people would rejoice at jhc chance, as the saving of interest (steadily' accmuultung each succeeding year) wonldci.ahlo the Government to to Vi c a proper* donate reduction In the taxes and Imports levied. In addition, a legal tender currency would be ob tained for one which Id only a quasi legal tender, thus tcmovlog the vexed question of, central re demption. In order to prevent the National Banks from purchasing other bonds, and organ lalrg under the Stale laws, It would be necessary for Congress to keep on the books, the acts taxing all State bank notes uJt of existence. This would have to be done most unquestionably, or the conmry would be again flooded with a miscellaneous assortment of “ wild cats ” such os made op our currency previous to the adoption of the national system. The change proposed by Mr. Itandal] would also give the people seventy live millions more currency than they now enjoy, as undet the present system thd banks nrc obliged to keep this amount of legal tenders as a reserve for tbc redemption of their circulation—thus re lieving the stringency now prevailing throughout the country, caused by Mr. McCulloch's contrac tion policy. There are no new features Is financial affairs. There is an active demand for Money, both In the way of renewals ami fresh paper, and the banka find It extremely difficult to accommodate those whoso claims cannot be overlooked. The rates of discount arc firm at 10 per cent per annum at the discount houses and per cent per mouth in the open market.
