tion as gold had been before. By the
act of Febuary 21,1853, much more con
siderable reduction was made in the
weight of silver coins, less than the
dollar, but evidently only for the pur
pose ofsupplyinga subsidiary currency,
for small payments; for by the same
act it was provided that the silver coins
issued in conformity thereto should be
legal tenders in payment of debts for
all sums not exceeding five dollars. I
have no doubt that all this tampering
with the coin was unwise and unjust.
Whatever may l>e the advantages of a
double standard they are too dearly pur
chased by the frequently recurring ne
cessity for these changes. But I do
not see that there was, in any of these
instances, a criminal breach of public
faith or an intention to interfere with
private contracts. In 1834, the public
debt had been recently liquidated in
full, and at the period of none of
these measures was anything to be gain
ed by the government from them, but
rather the reverse.
11. There is another important differ
ence between the two measures of de
basing the coin and issuing paper mon
ey. When an act is passed debasing the
coin, all the mischief is done. On the
day following, the prices of all market*
adjust themselves to the new standard.
Commodities, real or personal, lands
or chattels, are exactly the same ex
changeable value as before; the only
difference being that their value is ex
pressed in different figures. An ounce :
of gold will still buy the same number
of bushels of wheat whether it is coin
ed into twenty pieces called dollars, or
forty pieces. True, debtors are richer at
the expense of their creditors. But that
gross injustice also is finished. Every
man, creditor or debtor, capitalist or
laborer, knows exactly where he stands.
Not so with paper money. As to all j
existing contracts, the same and even
worse injustice is done, if the paper
depreciates, than when the coin is de
based. All equality is at an end. To- 1
day an.an pays at onediscount, to-mor
he receives at another. There is in truth
no standard of value whatever. The pa
per money varies like the mercury in
the barometer acted on by thesuperin
cumbent column of air, swayed to and
fro by the tides of the atmosphere— j
now high, now low —now rarefied,
now condensed. Thus, as confidence J
rises or falls,but more certainly as issues
are increased or contraeted, the value j
of every man's property —and the real
price of his labor, what he can procure
for it of the necessaries and comforts of
life, fluctuates from day to day. This
was just what the men of the Revo
lution who met in the Federal Con
vention— who assembled in the State j
Conventions and ratified the constitu
tion, had not merely heard with their
ears, but seen with their own eyes, !
touched and handled with their own
hands, and felt in their own pockets.
They had not the ad vantage of reading
the same history repeated in the paper ;
money of rovolutionary France. But
they needed it not. They had quite e
nough in their own experience to make
them determine to deal an effectual
death blow a' paper money.
On the whole, then, I am'of the opin
ion that the provisions of the act of j
Congress of February 20, 1862, declar- j
ing the notes is ued in pursuance of
that act to be lawful money and a legal ;
tender is unconstitutional.
This renders it unnecessary that I
should consider the other question,
which has been made as to the effect of 1
the special agreement to pay in lawful ;
silver money of the United States. J

the plaintiff, but as a majority of the ' .
Court are of a different opinion, judg- j
ment for the defendant. 1

The Radical candidate for Supreme Judge, stands
upon a platform, in which occurs the following
"Resolved , That warned by past misfortunes,
we ask that the Supreme Court of the State be
placed in harmony with the political opinions ot a
m jority of the people."
Thus, the Supreme Court, which is the final ar
biter between the weak and the strong, between
minorities and majorities, is to be swayed by polit
ical bias against the rights ot that portion f)i the
people who may happen to be in the minority.
Have minorities no rights which majorities are
bound to respect ? Nay, are not the fewest num
ber of people lawyers, or jurists, and is not often
the smallest minority right, on questions of law,
rather than the mass who have had no legal or ju
dicial education ? Who, therefore, could trust a
man as Supreme Judge, who will agree to substi
tute for his own deliberate judgment, the crude
opinions of the mob ?
HENRY W. WILLIAMS
is the candidate of a party which holds that a man
may repudiate his contract to pay a debt in gold
and silver, by paying the same in paper money,
thus actually making Government b.uds worth
no more than ordinary paper money. This is re
pudiation. Who, therefore, will vote for 11. W.
Williams, and become a repmliatiouist ?

I This will be a most potent and prompt

of colored suffrage. It is a question
which, ifdebated, State by State, must

' of the vulgar and ignorant. To achieve
justice for all their citizens, by local ac
tion, mpst be slow, tedious and uncertain:
But when Congress exercises its pow
er, the effect is prompt and unimpeded.
A general law will cut the Gordian inot
ami settle the issue finally."
The Telegraph is the central organ
of the Radical party in this State, and, |
I therefore, must be taken as the mouth- :
! piece of that organization. Hence, we ;
I learn from the above quoted article,
j that it is the purpose of the Radical
leaders, to FORCE Xegro Suffrage and
the Political Equality of Whites and
Blacks, upon the people of Pennsylva
nia, WITHOUT THEIR CONSENT, j
The editor of the Telegraph knows, as
well as he knows that he lives and
breathes, that Congress has no right
whatever to do this, and vet he talks
of the "unquestionable Constitutional \
authority" of that body in the premi
ses! Are the people so blind and be
sotted that they will hearken unto so
deliberate and shameless a falsehood?
For, it is not merely a perversion of the
meaning and intent of the Federal
Constitution, but wilful and cold-blood
ed misrepresentation of the language
and spirit of that instrument. WiU
the people, then, vote for HENRY j
W. WILLI A MS, who is pledged by his
party platform, to decide in favor of]
the Congressional usurpation which is
to force Negro Suffrage upon our Com- .
monwealth ? To be fore-warned is to ]
be fore-armed! Let every man who is '
opposed to the political equality of
Whites and Biaeks, who would not j
stand by the side of Negroes at the
Polls or sit with them in the Jury Box, ;
cast his ballot against the candidate of
the Radical party.

tors and Directors are now ail Demo
crats. We call upon the honest masses

You "call upon the honest masses to
rise above party this Fall!" Eh ? Do
you, indeed? You call upon them to
vote your own party ticket! What a
sacrifice you must have made when
you uttered that "call!" Do you ask
them to "rise above party," when they
come to cast their ballots for members
of the Legislature? Do you tell them
now, as you did three months ago, that
the last legislatuie, was the most cor
rupt body that ever assembled, and
tiiat "another such a legislature would
sink us?" Do you tell them, that in
view of the acknowledged corruption
of that body, they should rise above
party and vote for honest men? Do
you tell them that your candidates,
Weller and Richards, were members
of that body and voted for almost ev
ery one of the corrupt measures which
have rendered it infamous? Oh! no!
The quietest of quiet little mice could
not be as still on that subject as the ed
itors of the Bedford Inquirer. But
they will discover after the next elec
tion, that, with all their quietness, they
can't nibble themselves into the public
cheese. The people cannot be hum
bugged by their great pretentions to
honesty. Mr. Gutfy, of Westmoreland
county, once said of John Cessna, when
the latter was boasting of his Democra
cy," 1 have always observed that the cow
that bawls the loudest forgets her calf

Mr. Gutfy's observation to the profes

The "enclosed slip" will be found at
the editorial head of the Bedford In-
quiver of last week, and will, of course, 1
do duty there "until the election," as !
directed by Fr. Jordan. By such j
tricks do the Radicals hope to influence
public opinion. If they want t lie peo
ple to know and understand Judge j
Sharswood's decision, why don't they
publish it entire? It will be found on
our outside, this week, in full. Let
the Inquirer copy it, if it dare, and a
tone, in some measure, for the mean
trick of which the Radical Committee
is guilty, in publishing a "prepa-ed
slip" intended to deceive the people.
Did any decent "Republican" ever
i dream that his party would make
NEGRO STATES often States of this
i once free white Republic? Incredible
|as it may seem, this has been done!
Tennessee is now ruled by a Governor
elected by Negro votes. Every South
ern State under the rule of the "re-con
struction" Satraps, is negroized, the
greater portion of the whites being dis
franchised and the blacks, to a man,
made voters. Negroes sit on juries in
those States, to the exclusion of the
most intelligent of the whites. This is
the God's truth, and no "Republican"
of ordinary intelligence will attempt
to deny that it is true. Is this what
"Republicans" expected at the hands
of their party? Did they vote for Xe
gro States f Did the two hundred thous
and white soldiers who went from Penn
sylvania to risk their lives and their all in
the late war, fight for a BLACK EM
PIRE IN THE SOUTH? Let these
questions be pondered and answered
by the fair-minded and honest masses
of the "Republican" party, before they
cast their votes once more for the men
who have betrayed them.
THE Negroes of Pennsylvania recent
ly held a "State Convention," at Head
ing. That white Nigger, E. 11. Rauch,
editor ofa Radical paper in Reading,
addressed the "Convention," and said
in the course of his remarks, that he
"thanked God that not one-tenth of the
criminals of the State are colored men!"
The dirty knave did not stop to tell his
sable heare.s, that the "colored" popu
lation of Pennsylvania, is not the one
tenth part, nor tiie one-fiftieth part,
either, of the entire number of the in
habitants of the State, and, therefore,
couldn't well furnish the one-tenth
part of its criminals. Was there ever
a meaner, slimier, fouler traitor to his
own race and blood, than the man who
could utter a sentiment like the above?
The Negroes, under the dictation of
fellows like this Rauch, passed a reso
lution recommending the blacks of the
South to vote as a body with the Radi
cals. Do the Africans of Pennsylvania
want to array the Democrats against
their race? Do they want to make
enemies of three hundred thousand vo
ters in this State, many of them their
protectors and friends? If so, let them
stick to their Reading resolution.
Just think of it, if by reason of over
sight, and errors in the accounts of the
Poor House, eight or ten thousand dol
lars can leak out, in spite of all the ef
forts of three Democratic Directors and
three Democratic Auditors and a Dem
ocratic Poor House Clerk, Ac., how
much may have leaked out in the Coun
ty accounts?— lnquirer.

so happens that between THREE and

SHUCK and TROUT, Republican Di
rectors, part of it during the time of
Henry B. Mock, as Auditor, who now
leads the Radical party in St. Clair tp.,
and that the Poor House Clerk was ap
pointed by a Republican hoard. By
all means, let the dear people accom
modate the Inquirer by ousting the pre

and corrected the "leaks" which com

Tlicy ••Will Make Simml and Reliable Offi
The Bedford Inquirer, of June 21, 18-
07, in an article criticising the Demo
cratic County Ticket, thus spoke in re
gard to the gentlemen composing that
"The Copperhead County Convention
assembled in this place on last Tuesday
and put in nomination a ticket to be
supported by them at the coming elec
tion. The nominees are for District
Attorney. E. F. Kerr, of Bedford;
Treasurer, Isaac Mengel, of Bedford ;
County Commissioner, Peter M. Bar
ton, of East Pjroviclenee; Poor Director,
John I. Noble, of South Wood berry, and
Auditor, Samuel Whip, of Cumberland
Valley. This is about the best ticket
that has been put in nomination by
that party for some years. All the men
are sound practical men and will make
good and reliable officers. It is evident
that the country for once got theadvan
tage of the town, and the leaders here
were foiled in their efforts to secure the
usual creatures who are entirely sub
servient to them. We claim some cred
it for this deviation from the usual
course of nominating men without bus
iness (pi I ideations for the offices of
Commissioner, Poor Director and Aud
itor. It will be acredit to the candi
dates putin nomination by the Repub
lican party to defeat or be defeated by
such men." *
Yes, you may well say, Mr. Inquirer,
that the Democratic candidates are
"sound, practical men and will make
good and reliable officers." Such men
as Isaac Mengel, Ik F. Kerr, Peter M.
.Barton, John I. Noble and Samuel
Whip are eminently worthy of the
compliment you bestow upon them.
And as you think it "a credit" to your
candidates to be defeated by them, the
people will take great pleasure in con
ferring that "credit" upon your whole
ticket, from top to bottom. Of course,
the worse your ticket is beaten, by our
candidates, the more "credit" will at
tach to the persons composing it.
Hence, as we have a great desire to do
those persons much "credit," we shall
do all in our power to beat them as bad
ly as possible. Hurrah for the "Sound,
Practical" Ticket, say we!
TIIE Radical papers are in a great
stew over the article said to have been
published in the Salem (Mass.) Journal,
denunciatory of the "Pennsylvania
Dutch," and deny that the article ap
peared in that paper or any other pub
lished in Salem. Well, itdoesn't matter
whether that article was published in
a Salem paper, or in some other New
England sheet, and since the New York
Tribune has taken up the cudgels a
gainst the "Pennsylvania Dutch," it
matters but little whether it was pub
lished at all. We will substitute the
Tribune for the "Salem Journal." That
organ of Radicalism (the Tribune) re
cently had an article in which it spoke
of certain counties of Ohio, as having
been settled by a "school-fading, rum
loving breed of Pennsylvania Dutch," of
whose politics it professes a holy horror.
If tli cPennsylvania Dutch in this neigh
borhood love the Radicalism which
thus brands them with ignominy, so
much as to swallow such insults, they
will get plenty of that sort of diet in
WHENEVER you hear of a man
grumbling about the ticket, objecting
to this candidate or that candidate,
you may be sure that his Democracy
isn't skin deep, and that he only wants
an excuse to serve the enemy. In these
times, when the Jacobin conspirators
against the liberties of our country,
are busily plotting to make slaves of
all who will not worship at their po
litical shrine, the Democrat who stops
to higgle about personal objections to
Democratic candidates, who halts to
throw his own private grudges into
the balance against lus party ticket,
cares more for the gratification of his
own little spite than for the success of
the principles he professes. The ballot
is a sacred thing. It is not merely a
slip of printed paper. It represents
principles. It is the embodiment of
ideas. Shame 011 the man that would
permit his private grudges to interpose
between him and the principles which
he professes before all the world !

it not be well to switch off and try a

Yes, indeed! A few "Republican
brakesmen" like the editor of the In
quirer, wlio wanted to pay olf his tax
duplicate as Collector of Middle Wood
berry township by borrowing the mon
ey out of the County Treasury, would
be very apt to "stop the concern some
what." They would be "brakesmen"
with a vengeance! They would break

watches we have ever had in use on this road As
you are aware, we formerly trusted to those of
English manufacture, of acknowledged god repu

rectly, nor have they done as good service as
