The currency question came up in Congress last week, and we are gratified to be able to report that the intlationists were defeated — The pleasure is rather unexpected because the Tribune had represented the matter quite dif ferently and indulged iu some exceedingly loud declamation about it. We take our ac count front the official rejiort in the Congres sional Globe. The debate sprung up upon the bill introduced by Mr. Ilooper of Massa chusetts, to provide ways and means for the payment of compound interest notes. The bill consisted of two sections. The first di rected the Secretary of the Treasury to re ceive on deposit compound-interest notes, with the acciued interest, as a temporary loan, and to issue therefor certificates hearing inter est at a rate not exceeding three and sixty-five hundredths per cent, per annum, principal and interest payable iu lawful money on de mand ; these certificates to constitute a part of the reserve provided for in the act to pro vide a national currency, provided, that not less than two-lifths of the entire reserve of the banks consist of lawlul money of the United States; and provided farther, that the amount of such temporary certificates at any time outstanding shall not exceed $100,000, 000. The second section prohibited the Sec retary of the Treasury from retiring and can celing any of the United States notes com monly called “greenbacks" during the current year. Mr. htevens of Pennsylvania moved to amend tlie bill so as to make the first section read as follows: That the Secretary of the Treasury is hereby authorized and directed to redeem tlie com pound-interest notes, with the accrued inter est, UDd to issue therelbr United States legal tender notes. Mr. Lynch of Maine offered the following substitute for Mr. Stevens's amendment : That the Secretary of the Treasury is hereby authorized and directed to issue, in addition to the amount now authorized by law, §100,00(1, 000 ot suclr United States notes as are author ized by section ouo of an act to authorize the issue of United States notes, &c., approved February 25,1802; which notes shall be issued in payment of compound-interest notes, and for lio other purpose, until all of such notes shall have been redeemed; and the Secretary of the Treasury shall so redeem the same as they shall be presented at the Treasury of the United States. Mr. Lynch explained the bearing of his amendment briefly but very clearly, as fol lows): Mr. Speaker, section thirty-one of the na tional currency act provides: That every association in the cities hereinaf ter named shall, at all times, have on hand in lawlul money of the United States au amount equal to at least twenty-five per cent, of tin aggregate amount of its notes in circulation and its deposits, and every other association shall have fifteen per oent. That twenty-five per cent, and fifteen per cent, of lawtul money which the national banks are required to keep as a reserve, amounts at tbe present time to something over two hundred million dollars, §100,0(H)' 000 of which is held in compound interest notes. Sir, X am told by tbe Comptroller ot the currency about ninety million dollars are returned, but there is mixed in the returns, according to the estimate, about ten million dollars more. Now, within the present fiscal year the compound-interest notes mature and are to be paid, and they amount, with the interest added, to $170,0(8),000. I suppose that with the exception of the §100,000,000 held by the banks the others are out oi circulation and are held as investments. So that retiring the seventy milhous assumed to be held by Individuals would uot contract the cuirency while the §100,000,000 which arc held by tbe banics as a reserve must be replaced by *100, 000,100 of legal tenders withdrawn fiom cir eulatif a. As els been stated to-day, the Secretary of tlie Treasury is authorised to withdraw $4, 000,000 per mouth, or $48,000,18)0 in the course ot a year, and in addition to that the banks will have to supply the place of these compound interest no*es now held as a re serve, which will withdraw §100,000,000 more, making $148,000,000 in a single year. Now, l take it any business man knows we could not stand any such contraction as that, aud hence this bill is reported by the Committee on Ways and Means for the substitution of $10o,U(8),000 tor that amount ot compound interest notes to De taken from the banks as a reserve of lawlul money. Now, look at the effect of it. Ilere axe §100, 000,000 of three per cent, notes made, for what? As the gentleman Irom Iowa well said, to take the place ot lawtul money and redeem the obligations of the banks. Every gentle man knows that without a reserve ol lawlul money t'«ey cannot redeem tlieir obligation , when presented. But gentlemen say tiiese bonds are on demand ami they can be carried Puck to tbe T reasury and exchanged tor $100, 000,000. True, but tlie (Government in the mean time is not only payiug three per cent, on this §1(81,000,000 but lioloing $100,000,000 of currency in the Treasury with which to re deeip these demand bonds. now, wnat is me proposition 01 tue gentle man trom Pennsylvania t It is to issue legal tender notes to the full amount of these com pound-interest notes. It goes very much lur tlier than any other proposition which has been made here. It proposes that we shall not only provide for these $100,000,000 of compound-interest notes, which would be no inflation of the currency, but. simply a substi tution by the banks ol legal-tender notes for the compound-interest notes now held in re serve by them; hut that the other $70,000,000 of compound-interest notes not held by tbe banks, but by private individuals, shall be re placed by legal-tender notes which are to go immediately into circulation. We therefore, by the provisions of this bill, it amended as the gentleman propose;, not only forbid the contraction of *1,000,000 of the currency jier month, now authorized by law, but we in crease tbe present circulation by $70,000,000. 1 am not prepared to support any such propo sition. Now the plan I proposed would replace the $100,000,000 of compound-interest notes by legal tenders, instead of by these interest bearing demand bonds provided lor by the first section of this bill, thus saving to the Government not only the interest on th > t Kinds, hut also u|ion whatever amount the Secretary of the Treasury would lie obliged to hold with which to redeem them when pre sented. This would be neither inflation nor contraction but would leave the amount in circulation precisely the same as at present.— It is said by gentlemen that the banks would use ilieir reserve if all in United States notes, but they have one hundred millions of such notes under this bill and one hundred millions of the promised iionds payable on demand, tor which they can at any time obtain United States notes at the Treasury. There is no protection whatever against the banks using their reserve by issuing bonds payable on de mand instead of United Slates notes. Mr. Stevens—I will modify my amendment by limiting tbe amount to $100,000,000, and providing that the notes so issued shall bear no interest. Mr. Lynch—As that is exactly my own preposition of course I shall not object to it. Alter considerable debate, Mr. Stevens’s amendment as modified, was adopted by a vote of 99 to 68—Messrs. Peiham and Lynch of this State voting for the amendment and Messrs. Blaine, Bice and Pike against it. On motion of Mr. Kandall of Pennsylvania, the second section of the bill, prohibiting the con traction of the currency now authorized, was subsequently stricken out, and the bill, reduced in substance to Mr. Lynch's amend ment, passed by a vote of 95 to 65, the Maine delegation dividing as before. We believe the moderate ground taken by Mr. Lynch on this question, in opposition to Mr. Stevens's proposition to authorize an ex pansion to the amount of #70,000,000 on the one hand, and to Mr. Hooper's proposition to restrict the Secretary's power to curtail the currency on the other, will commend itself to the business men of the country. The substi tution of United States notes lor the com pound-interest notes held by the banks as a reserve, cannot be callrif an expansion of tbe currency. The deteat of the second section ol the bill is a substantia] triumph of the imlicy of contraction.

To the Editor of the Press: The righttuluess of taking the life of a mur ! detrr is maintained on different grounds To punishments, say one class of ethical writers ' aie exemplary, and are designed to deter the punished liom repeating the crime. But how> ask sentimentalists do you expect to reform a man, whom you pHt out of existence, (hy oid school Irieuds, if they do not fad hack at once upon ths Noachic covenant, and forego all further self-inquest into the problem, will perhaps reply: In the case of the murderer we forego the purpose of reforming him, but ate more than compensated in the powerful inceLtive we get to reform alt others having like evil tendencies jwe hung the murderer lor an example to others. Here comes iu the as r donic humor cf Carlyle with a comment like this: s?.y°u take criminal caitiffs, murderers and the like, and hang them on gibbets “for an example toothers.’ Whereupon arise friends ot humanity and object. With very great rea son, us 1 consider, it your hypothesis be correct. What right have you to hang any poor creature tor „a", ettautple" He can turn round and say, W by make an example of me, a merely ill-situated, pitiable man? Have you mi more respect for misfortune? Misfortune I have been told is sacred. And yet you liaug me now I have fallen into your bauds; choke the life out ot me for an exaauiplc! Again I ask, why make an example of me tor your own con venience alone?’’ All revenge being out of the question, it seems to me, the cuitiU is unan swerable; and he and the philanthropic plat form have the logic all their side. Upon this mishap of (be argument of ex* ample the tuggel philosopher seizes the hull by the horns and says, we do slay murderers and other ielons out of revenge and hate of their sin, or quoting his own fiery invective: Tho one answer to him is: "Caitiff wo hate thee; and discern lor some six thousand years now, that we are called upon by the whole uni verse to do it. Not with a diabolic but divine hatred. God himself we have always under stood ‘hates sin’ with a most authentic, celestial and eternal hatred, * * « ‘tis a palpable deserter from the ranks, where all men are at their eternal peril bound to bo * * we solemnly expel thee from our community and will in the name ol God, uot with joy and ex ultation but with sorrow stern as thy own, hang thee on Wednesday next, and so end." So end the caitiff, perhaps, hut not the ar gument, for if we do uot hurry the hanging so as to choke oil' the dying speech, it might be to this effect: So you hang me for my sin. Let him that is without sin lake the hist pull at the rope. My sin got the sun u|>on it, and so ripened into an ugly (Iced. Yours, your Honor, elo quent public prosecutor, respectable gentlemen of the jury, your Excellency and your very polite representative on this mournful occa sion, the Sheriff, growing in the toriuuatc shade, has develoiied no further titan the leal. Who placed me in the sunshine of opportu nity, and so brought to Iruitage and ripeness the rascal that 1 was? Had you, learned and honorabe gentlemen, nothing to do with that? Who gave me my mean ancestry to curse me with this pinched brain, aud these wolfish appetites? They were certainly none of my choosing. And clearly the caitiff gets the better even of Carlyle upon the one answer, on which he rests tlie whole case of punishments. It is absurd to punish men tor crimes because they are sins. From the standpoint ot a pure and iutinite intelligence tlie difference in tlie qual ity ot men may be still greater than it seems to us, but the dill'erence between the sins, that is the personal responsibility ot the best and the worst most be infinitesimal. When Jesus lot the adulteress go unpunished, be cause there was no one so tree from adultery as to be entitled to begin the punishment, he virtually denied that murder could be pun ished by men us tin, because there are no men who have not been guilty of causeless hatred which he affirmed to be nmrtler. But though the dying sjieech is au effectual extinguisher to Carlyle and to society at large, when it puts ou the impudent assump tion of sanctity aud undertakes to punish crime as sin it is capable of an auswer that ought to close debate: We do not hate you. We do not wish to torture you or in any way avenge ourselves on you lor the injury you have done us. We will even call you, if it soothes your feelings, our poor uulonunatc brother, but we mean lor our own safely to be rid of you. We do not stand upon the method of your going, provid ed you promptlygo. If ames'.heticsor narcot ics, or fumes of charcoal will abate the horrors, or relieve the auirnal apprehension ot the event, to which you have surely come, pray help yourself with them. '1 hat we are all sin ners is neither here uor there, and tuis is uo time to charge upon you any greater abstract guiltiucss tliau belongs to us. That we are all sinners makes the very necessity of hanging you, tor it there were not in all of us germs ot tlie very c-imes which have matured iu you, your picsenee and contact would not cudau ger us ; and you might be kept as a unique immoral curiosity- We recognize the compe tition. striic, by widen men like other unimnls .seek to appropriate each to himself the goods of lile; hut wlieu it comes to Icilliny other living men standing in their way, we iusist the competition has been carried too far, and that those, who play the game of life in such a reckless way, shall be summarily put out. Indeed it seems to us a mistake, that you are here at all. Among the multitudes that might have been born in your place and were denied existence by trivial circumstances, in the wide range of possibilities that seem to us to have lieen open, it looks as-if nature had made a grave mistake in selecting you. V, e will essay to correct this mistake, sorry tliat our remedy comes so late; aud we would lx- glad soon to forget that you ever existed, or that your like can exist. In a true sense we do not punish you. We regard you as a case too tough tor our punitory discipline, and not ir reverently send you back, wncnce you came, where we trust the coudiuons of existence are mure favorable, than you have louml them here. Messrs. Rautoul, Phillips and Andrew come up to the Legislature with statistics tending to show, that the public hanging of murderers does not deter other men from murder, that it brutalizes and degrades the mind, that not rarely men have gone from the very gallows tree to take the lives of their fellow creatures, and thereui>on claim to have the death penal ty abolished. liut supposing that capital punishment does not deter men iu general from homicide. Let us content ourselves with a more modest re sult. Hanging prerents the man hung fram committing any more murders. Has anybody a* hand any statistics to disprove this propo sition? Xu time, gaining none hut this small and sure advantage, we might thin the num ber of murderers, stop the seed and breed of them, and with au improved general civiliza tion at last get rid of them. A tanner has just detected his favorite dog In killing sheep, lie bad snapped at them before and got kicked, cudgelled and chained up for his pains. That was the era of disci pline. Now it is got beyond that. He aban dons all purpose.of reforming his dog, and proceeds with due coolness to shoot him. II Mr. Phillips should interpose and say: Sir, do not kill the dog. It will not deter other doss from sheep stealing. 1 am even prepared to show that the sight of your mangled dog, nay the knowledge of tl.e violem-e that has iieen done him, will excite a ferocity in all dogs, that will prove fatal to many flocks, the blunt farmer would he likely to grunt: “Perhaps so; but this here dog wont kill no mure sheep 1 reckon.” He is practical and contents him self with a practical residt. Crime flows from character and repeals It self. The evil tree brings forth corrupt fruit. Nay worse, it crime it is the first step that costs; and crime thus accumulates uism itself. The thief continues to steal; the counterfeiter counterfeits again; the murderer left alive commits other murders. So congruous is this principle to the popular ideas, that it will be remembered a whole series of murders were attributed by popular superstition to Dr. Web ster after the one tor which he suffered was brought to light. I lie true reason ol capital punishment is that it is a certain prevention ot the repetition by the punished of the crime for which he is punished. The guilt of the man is only the oeeasi m, which justifies dealing witli him in this summary manner, and guilt too not re garded as sin, but simply as furnishing un mistakable manifestation of the quality of the man as being such that society cannot safely tolerate. It seems indeed a poor recourse, a locking of the stable door alter the horse is stolen. Had we oniinscience to see into others hearts, and determine in whom deficient c on science, unbridled passions, and uoimpressih e moral sense ma„e all the conditions necessary to accomplish gt eat crimes, we might apply our remedies in season to save lives that are worth preserving, but as it is we must give to every man a free chance to grapple with liis evil inclinations, and not deal with him as a criminal till some overt evil ait has revealed the feebleness of his will. The failure to appreheud this relation be tween crime and character has led to much mistaken philanthropy and mistaken legisla tion. We have medicated the symptom not the disease. We have looked at the spe cilic murder, nut at the murderous heart of X. death penalty is, that it protects ^ against the dead criminal, as a dock of sheep is protected against a dead dog. Men are not sheep, and criminals are not dogs. We be lieve that society can protect itself, without putting reparation out of the question in case of mistake. Suppose some accidental circum stances had heightened the suspicion which fell upon that poor Frenchman at Auburn into certainty!—Ko.J The Adjutant lieneral'a *tr|>«rt. We liave received the closing war report of Adj. Gen. Hodsdon, embraced in two noble volumes of 1328 and 1378 pages respectively. It is undoubtedly tbe most complete and com prehensive report issued by any State. Tire second volume was prepared and pul> Ushed first. It was distributed during the session oi the legislature last winter and con tained what is known in Gen. Hodsdon's re port* all through the war as Appendix I), be ing a complete roll of ail men connected with each regiment, company and battery during the two years, the age. social condition, date ol master-in, and lemarks, showing promo tions, Uausters, desertions, wounds, deaths, Ac., and a copy of the morning report for tne day to which the history was made up. In this condensed history ol every man in the Service from tbe State, Gen. Hodsdon was the pion eer, having begun it with the report lor 18U1, and continued it Iroui the time the 1st regi ment of three months men under Col. Jack son lett Portland, until the last organization of Maine soldiers finally broke ranks on Hart's Island. Following Appendix D are two tables giving for each organized regiment or corps tbe name ot its last commanding otficer, the place ot rendezvous for mustering iu, the dates of entering the service and of leaving the (state, the period of service, by whom mustered in and when mustered out; also, for each corps tbe number kill* d in action, died of wounds, died ot disease, deserted, dis charged by order and by expiration of term of service, dismissed, cashiered, resigned, dis honorably discharged, transferred to V. it. C., to navy, to regular army, missing in action, absent, sick, dropped horn rolls, discharged tor re enlistment in the field, and discharged lor disability. The sec ond article concludes wdih an alphabetical roster of commissioned officers,showing rank, company, regiment ai.d remarks. That these facts could not be obtained by an officer in this State trom a constantly moving army aud iroin ail corps in all parts of the South, without almost incredible labor, may easily be bilieved. Yet it is undoubtedly as correct as is is pussiuie mr any roils 10 lie.
