Tho recent' utterances on financial
matters by several prominent leading
politicians in both the Republican and
Pemocratio parties, have been discuss
ed,' advocated and condumned by the
bress,' irrespective of party influences'.
The following article, which we copy
front tho Mihrauheq Sentinel, is one
o" tho most jx-rtinent and forcible yet
written, exposing the absurd position
taken by those who would ruin the
credit of tho country by repudiation ;
"Goneral Bailer's scheme is
simply this; To ay earta Uiiitod BUtci
Bumls called S-8i)g(tlut Is, maita piynblo at
any time nftor flvo ycara auil within twenty
years, at tho option of thu goyornmcnt,) In

'has ii right to d, because It did not specify
in tn.o bond that it wss to be paid in coin, and
liecwiso It hAd mnd8 greenbacks a legal ton

' Now let usnnalyzo tills le?al tender act
It provides that If A owes B $100 he thallho
discharged from that obligitlon by paying B
ildO In groentmcks or legal tender notes.
Very well) what Is a greenback? It Is simply
n promlsoof the government to pay the bearer
so many dollar. : The legal tender nc there-
foro, does not dnsldcr 11 paid, for It provides
that ha shall receive from tha g iTornmont a
promise to pay him and let A go free. A is
discharged from his obligation to B, but the
government is not. It 1ms simply taken the
place of A and assumed his responsibility to B.
If B were paid by the transaction tlio govcrn-
ment would owo him nnthiug, and the green-
m would bo cancelled,' l9c B would gr.t
Ids pay twlco. But thi legal' tender act does
not pnee hnit tint the greenbacks aro canccl-
Vd H tb operation, or that tho government is
not Mill bound to pay tho promised dollars
On the contrary, It Is nn the assumption that
the government will pay tlrem that B is com
pulled to take tiro notes In Hen of his c'aim
pon A. It is understood all around that the
government cannot pay the dollars and tnko up
tho erctnbacka nt pres"nt. But it Is equally
well Understood UvUth-J government Is bourn)
todoloi, and that tbo fulth of tho nation is
ii revocablv nlpih'nd Hint. It will tin It nq mnn
as it cans othetwisi, Treasury notes would
i.not be worth tba paper they are printed on,
legal tender act would to merely an
arbitrary enactment that all existing creditors
should go without their pay. The greenbacks
might be worth soinRtluni until nil pro-cxUt-
Mng debts were nibbed out by them; thonce-
pirward all creilit upon their taith would ccaso,
and they would be on a par with Confederate
nt payable lx mmithj after never.
'B may procure a dlsehargn from a like obll.
giitlon to C by tendering him tho same notes,
but C is not paid, for tlio same reason that B
was not when he received tbcm from A. The
gnvurnraont lint asuimod B's debt to C, just
nt It did A s debt to B. B is now paid, be
cause C has advanced the tangible ' talila for
tbo government and taken its obligation to
pay. Thus tlio greonbacks may go on through
tlio whole alphabet, no one boing paid when
he receives them, but only when he parts with
them for value whioh tho next man advances
fur Hie government. Tlio legal tender act,
then, only enforces a constant sliifliujof obli
gations against individuals for obligations
Cjairist the United States.
;'''tw let us rrll'rn and Inquire whU fs the
nature' of a flvo-twenty bani? It it simply a
prbmlso on tha part of tlio United S'cs to
pay (be holder so many dollars. What is the
meaning of the word '"dollar," as nscd in the
bomk? Gen. Butler says that It means
"greenbacks -a legal tender." Bnt what is a
greenback a legal tender? - We will take
one trots out wallet and rend. Here it is
-Tbo United Statet will pay the bearer one
dollar at lho treasury in New York."' That is
the, dollar which Gen, Butler tayt is promised
hi the bond not the dollar lu the tretsury la
New York, but the bk of papor which promisee
tlio. dollar. A dollir, says Gun. Butler, is the
promise of a dollar! And-be calls on this
great naihn to stand up before tho nations of
the earth and any to its creditors: "That
dollar I promised jr. u was only the proml-so of
a floll ir ccrtululy a dollar is nothing but
-the1 promHo of a dollar; takt it and be gone !"
Ah inflWldual who should attempt such a trick
Would be called by every one, a contemptible
sneak ftnd scoundrel.''
Ml might be expected tlt the creditor
woddakwho Is to pay Ihis last promise f
Aoeordlng to General Buder't scheme this it
never to be paid; it docs lot seed to be paid ;
ii i lta.own payment. The government hm
the riht to fulfil oa promise with another of
the sume kind which is not to be fulfilled 1 If
the second promiae is to be fulfilled, bow is it
to be done? . ITU is by a third promise of die
saine kiud, what better it that than the Aiat
or iV-cood promise ? If it ft to be paid la the
thlbg promised, which means a certain quan
tity of gold pr ailyer, why is it not at wullto
pay I on the fij-st promlte as on the third one,
provided the crelitor will wait eauallv loue

boot the fellow fuimhU presence, and' never
ask him for the dollar agiin, and take good
care that be never owed him another. And
yet General But'.er calls upon the government
of the United States to do this very thing with
Its creditors.
"But General Butler's Kherae not only pro
pose' to redeem one promisa with another
which U never to be redeemed, but to redeem
promise which draws Interest by one which
does not draw hilerest, To Illustrate this we
will suppose that 'General Butler holds note
against Charles Sumner for one thousand dol
lars, payable In two to five years, at the option
of the maker, wttli Interest payable semi-annually.
The two years are expired and Mr.
Sumner goes to - General 'Butler, and says,
"General, I am tired of paying interest on that
note and Wish td pay It." Genera! Butler re
plies, "Very wolf, you have right to take it
up." Mr. Sumner offers him his own note,
for the amount without interest The General
sajs to Mr. Sumuer, "I have your promise to
pay already. If you wish to take up the note
pay me the money." Mr. Sumner replies,
"General, I did indeed promise to pay you so
many dollars, but you know tba) one promise
may always be redeemed by another of the
same kind, unless it Is otherwise expressly
provided In tiie promise." General Butler re
plies, "But this is not even a promise of the
same kind; It promises no- interest." Mr.
Bumner, with his accustomed good nature,
replies, "Very true ; but. General, youshould
understand that as the second promise always
cancels the debt, I am no longer bound to pay
Interest." ' .' '

Ono of the most appalling cataslro-
plucs that lias occurred m tlusvtciiunity
for years, and which is only excecdeil in
fatality by tho terrific explosion nt Al
legheny Arsenal some five years since
took place nt noon, Friday, at Reese
Graff & Dull s rolling mills, in the
Ninth ward, by which fourteen' men
were hurried into eternity, and a largo
number of others severely iniurcd.
The particulars of tho fatal calamity,
are given as follows by one of our city
exchanges of Saturday: Yesterday
moruing about halt-past cloven o clock
tho residents of the Ninth ward, lower
part of Pitt township and Lawrcnce
ville, were startled by a trcmenduous
report as of an explosion, which shook
tlio foundations ot tho houses tor halt
a mile around. Crowds of pcoplelias
tened to tho place from whence the re-
Iwrt proceeded to ascertain tho cause,
t was soon ascertained tbat an explo
sion had taken place in the Forge De
partment of the iortPitt Iron Works
owned by Messrs. Hees, Graff & Dull,
and located on the bank of the Alle
gheny river, between Wilson and
Rouudary streets, in Pitt township, an 1
fronting tho track of the Allegheny
Valley Railroad. Tho builii;.ng had
been blown to atoms, and the report
that quite a largo number of hands ,
employed in the building had been
killed and Injured spread Itko wild-
Ui'OV !
To add to tlio mora horrible nature
of the catastrooliy, tho ruins of the
building had taKeo, fire and were in
flames. Notwitlistanding tlio exertions
of the firemen, nearly all of tho frame
work of tlie building was -destroyed
before the flames could bo siibd'utfd.
We arrived at the scene of the disas
ter half an. jiour ' after thd explosion
took place, and found tho,. building to
bo a mass of ruins. , The ruins wore in
such a confused mass it is almost im
possible to describe them. , The explo
sion had made such a complete - wreck
that not one board on tho building had
been left standing. A portion of the
structure used in rolling iron, and lo
cated oil. tliecast side, and about twen
ty, feet from the forgo .department,
was torn j.down . by - the i explosion.
Two largo smoke stacks in thin, build
ing were thrown down :by the .flying
timber, and falling on a shed near by
were bent very ,id!v. ', In tlio forge
department, the ruins some places had
massed very high.,., ..None ot the tim
ber . belonging -to,,' the building was
blown any great distance,, but princi
pally full in confused; maps together.
Singular to say,., all the chimueys in
in this . buildinir iwere left Rfciiulinc.
. . . - -. ra, . 1 . . n '
attho:igh,eycrythmg else belonging' to
U19 ; building was. a complete, wreck.
A number of pjeces of .the boilers, qnil,
tiiubor were thrown a considuruUo dis
tance fropi bp, ground. r .
" As soon as lha flinios had been sub
dued guJHojeijtly to admit of tjae remov
al of. the charred tkaber and iron, fV
forta wara jnade, w take out iue, bodies
IWftiii VW PcUi
tors present assisted in the wvjrlc,'and
sueceeJedin recover'mg about' h:df a
dozen of the bodiessome of which
were bo terribly burned as td bd almost
unrecognizable. -A sad spectacle "was
nrcsented to tho eye of the spectator as
lie reached tho scene of tho disaster
shortly after the explosion. As a body
was extricated from tho ruins, women,
little girls .and boys would crowd
arouud it to get a ghuiso of the corpse
fearing to discern in tho features
some husband, father or brother, - who
hail been employed in tho null, and
who was missing. The agonizing
tears ofthe women andchildrcuas they
recognized in some mangled corpse the
well known features ot thoso nearest
and dearest to them, was heart-rendi n
iu the extreme, and by-stamlurs could
but look on ami pity tliem, , As . the
bodies were extricated from tho f iihis,
they were' laid on the ground near by,
or taken Into the adjosning 'houses.'
Tho injured were removed into the
houses, where everything possible was
done for them. As soon as the nature
of the disaster had been ascertained,., a
number of physicians from this qity
and vicinity repaired lit once to the
scono and administered relief to tho In
jured. . . '
Sixty tnen were employed in the
forgo dcmrtmcnt but it is believed that
ull nave been accounted for. ......
The bpilers (three in number) were
parallel with the river and Allegheny
Valley Railroad track, and about sev
en iuchos apart. They were built in
July, 1803, by Carroll & Snyder, and
were forty-two inches in diameter . and
thirty feet in length, with two .sixteen
inch flues in ench boiler. The shells
and flues were made of full qlinrtcr
inch iron,' The iron was manufactured
by Shocnbcrgcr & Co., each ! sheet
stampedC. 11. (Chnt'coa! Jlaiumwcil)
No. 1. It is impossible to ascertain
which boiler exploded first as tho en
gineer and fireman, tho tho only per
sons capable of giving such informa
tion, were instantly killed. The prob
ability is that one of the boilers explo
ded and immediately caused the explo
sion of the other two. They all np
poar to have broken in tlio middle
and the fragments were thrown all
directions. I1 mm an examination of
all the fragments of the boilers that
wore to be seen, it appears that they
were broken in peiucs where riveted
together. . Several of tho flues were
collapsed, anil but littlo remained by
which the boiler could bo identified,
Immediately after tbo explosion the
building took firo and tho damage was
thus rendered much greater than it
otherwise would have been. The few
persons who escaped from tho building
were so intent upon gctingout that thev
paid little attention to what took place
in tho brief interval that occurod be
tween tho explosion and tho fire.-
Coroner Clawson arrived on the
ground shortly after the explosion, and
took immediate measures towards hold
ing inquests on the bodies of unfortu
nate victims.
A peico of timber four feet long and
several inches thick, was thrown
through the nir a distance of a quar
ter of a mile, and struck near the track
of tho Pennsylvania Railroad Compa
ny. -,
A little son of Mr. Hutchinson, the
engineer, was pist in net of bandin
his father his dinner bucket, when the
boiler exploded, blowing off a portion
r-r irlai i yi.h. .r
oi .iur. ji. srneiiu ana Kilting nun ins
tantly. The boiler passed over the lit
tle boy's head, and be was not seri
ously injured, only sustaining a few
cuts on the head from falling timbers.
His escape from death was most mirac
ulous. John Weaver, one of tho employees
in the mill, was standing noar ono of
the pits when tho explosion occurred.
Tho forco of tho steam Wew him ; up
through the building (tho timber hav
ing fallen) and over a shed, lighting on
the bank of the river, a distance of two
hundred feet. Ho only sustained a
fracture ofthe shoulder blade, besides
having his face scalded, and was able
to walk back. ' '
The firm estimate their total loss at
$12,000. Their establishment was ful
ly insured against fire. Tlio building
was a frame structure and was entirely
lostroyed, but the principal part of the
machinery was not materially dam
, Many plans were proposed in order
to aflbrd relief to the families of the
suilcrci'3, but no definite action was
taken until tbe Young Men's. Chris
tian Association, with their charac
teristie bcncVidcuce, took the master in
hand. ' . ,,.
. It is' also proposed that the manufac
turers of the city, and thbVr employees,
extend a helping hand to the sufferers.
