As the subject of eurreney b so little under
stood by the world at largo, we think proper
to make a few remarks upon the topic, in
ordor to enlighten many who htve nuver
turuod tholr attention to political eeonoiuy.
The. amount of gold nud silver in a country
doe not by any meau.s represent Its we:tlth.
Iu a strict sensa gold ami silver are not
wealth. An editorial in the Now York 2Vi
tune of last Saturday, makes use of llu ex
pression Unit " the mlau of yj'.U iiid niloe.r
r nAre in the asernjo amount of L vuou re

definition hi not penectly correct. W havo
BO doubt, however, from the chaw-tor of the
Orticlo, that the writ.tr of it thor oj -hly un
(lorstood his subject, aud merely used tho ec
prosalon as indicating tho idoii with sulllclunt
Oold nud idlvor repieient tho vahw ot the
production of lahor ami naliii-o eom'ilnrd.
The labor of mau combined with appropria
natural obj'M'ts, makes what U called wealth.
VV'oaiUi would exist In exactly tae simedc-g'-ee,
If gold and silver bad no . ;itence ou tho
caHh. foiUM-fiueiitly eold snd nlWer are not
wi altli, lint are merely representative of it.
They can be used to represent wealth,
I realise tl.ey exist in quantities so limited Unit
II ( v ramx t be appropriated by every one. If
iinyiliir? exists In n pr.vtira'ly limitless
run unt,lt can neither be wealth, nor can il b i
u 1 (I a 11 1 resentatlve ol wealth.
'I he po si'ss'on ol jrobl and silver Is merely
tin' cei I i lie lite hidd by h certain In dividual
that he, through his own oxertioii",or through
11 (( nferred upon him by others, is ent.i
lli il to draw upon the wealth of the world, in
iitnn of possessing that which was created
1 y li.l or in liin,' upon tiie natural powers of
ll.i eai lii. In other won'.., he Is possessed ol
v.e.'ihh i f which lr has choien to retain only
tins symbol. His power over tint general
l in k of prmluetM held in the world, Is the
I ot',! r conferred by the common baue!H pro-
I ci dhig Irom exchange. And tliis is jireeUely
the 1 urpo. e of tho use ol gold und silver to
fucilitato KxritAwiK, A man cannot carry a
n w of three-., lory brick booses In one poc.iot
nnd a granary of wheat in another; but by
the poshcstdou of sonuithiiig which exist 1 in so
limited a (ii:intily that the whole world recog
nizes it os the representative of wealth, he is
II itb! -d to perform all tho operations of ex
i li.ir.go v, iiliouL ditllcully.
Nov, preris-ly as gold and silver, which are
l'linled in quantity, are nc ,'epted by the whole
Vtt rld n.s representative of wealth, so paper
nnd promises, being limitless, are not repre
sentative of wea'th. As gold and silver are
representative of wealth, so paper currency is
n r 1 rescnt::tive of gold and silver. It is the
r prepeiilalivo of u representative
The use of all money being for purposes of
exchange, it niti.it bo evident that when the
Fi'.m total fulfils these purposes, thn surplus is
well s.i. To use tlio illustration of Joii.v
Stuaht Mill,: "Two million quarter ol
corn will not feed so many persons as lour
millions; but two million of pounds sterling
will carry on as much tra.'llc, will buy and sell
us many commodities, as four million, though
at lower nominal 1 rices."
Our currtuey has reached thu greatest
practicable expansion. Its d.'preci it'um ex
hibits not only u iall which is us irremediable
us thai consequent upon tho physical law of
gravity in the universe, but also til l elfects of
the operations of speculators and the inachi
natiens of disloyalists. To increase tho issue
will not remedy or even relieve the .dillUoilty.
The amount would still more greatly prepon
derate over the necessities of exchange, and
the client would bo higher nominal prices.
Every one would have more to spend, but be
would be able to buy no moro. If every one
felt that tbo notes of the Government eon
tained his individual promise mid liability to
pay ; if ho possessed knowledge of the enor
mous, untouched wealih of the country, and
entertained perfect conlidenee in our military
success, there would be much less deprecia
tion of thu currency. It must necessarily bo
depreciated, If It exceeds the purposes of ex
change, but part of the depreciation Ls owing
to disloyal doubt as to its redemption. Guno
ral belijf, a nounllng to certainty, in its re
demption, would keep the representative of
coin in more favorable relation to coin. l!at
the cuneney Is used by human beings, mauy
of w hom are indifferent, ignorant, or depraved.
As, iu order to bo wealth, gold and silver
must possefs the quality of being convertible
Into products of tho earth, so, In ordur to be
equivalent to gold and silver, notes must pos
sess the quidity of being convertible into gold
and silver. Only in tho case where notes are
redeemable at sight, will there be no deprecia
tion below the standard of coin.
Mow, when it is recollected that our
currency Is paper, und that it has had to
bear tho adverse influence of an increase be
yond tbo needs of exchange, aud of evil sug
gestions r.a to its redemption, anil to these
have been superad 'ed tho etlbrls of speculators
and disloyalists, tho mutter for surprise is that
it lias not depreciated to a greater degree.
The general Intelligence of the people must bo
grcut, when they are so well aware of tho
military power of their Government, and of
Uie wealth of their country, that they repose
ulmost Implicit conlldeuce in the future.
The remedy for our trou'olos Is not to be
found in laws establishing impossibilities, nor
in further expansion of the currency. It is to
be found in taxation, aud in procuring requi
site lunds by future loans. If It wore possi
ble to put an end to speculation in gold, it
would benefit us; but it is not possible. A
law to prevent it, would stop Ita publicity,
but wotUd not stop the practice. Yot, if
public opinion ever had a good ottt-jo to per
form, ll is in dlscoutiteuancing this gambling
upon the agony of tho nation. Its proceeds are
the prico of blood. Somo of the biltureut ene
mies of the country do not scruple to avail
themselves of the opportunities aflbrdud by
I th0 ar. which they uflcct to deplore, aud
against which they frantically rail.
The remedy for our troubles is to be found,
Crst of all, In fuith in our destiny. There is
wealth enough in the luud to pay our debt,
and a far greater debt. Our natural wealth Is
po great that It seems practically limitless.
There is military power enough to crush the
; lielellioi), lor even now, behoU, It collapses!
j Faith Includes till. It presupposes knowledge
I ol our military power and wealth, and love
; for our country. With theso come victory,
I nnd with victory, Tiiack. '

which aro Inscribed in the American Val

to say that their offspring woro allowed to
die for want of food and shelter, which their
ft llow-( itizi ns, who stayed at home, were too
avaricious to give unto theaa?
While petroleum, the war, and thu thousand

An ordinance of Councils has I'eclarod that
to ask an alms is a crime. The law li just.
Cut shall the poor bo thus deprived of their
means of Bubsibtonce, which, however dis
graceful, still enable them to livo ? Thuro are
to-day thousands of deserving poor, womou

who are actually starving for want of food,
and shivering from need of clothiug. D j not

when tho days of her trials aru past,
if her returning veterans shall find, in
1 luce of a loving family, a desert home, a roiV
of paupers' graves! The vengeance of tho lace
rated spirit of those brave men will be ter
rible. 11 they have not paused in the charge
upon Vlcksburg, Fredericksburg, Aniiet uo,
und Gettysburg, will they hesiaite to take
fcovn the men who have cobvd their gold out
of their country's agony, and left the Baere l
charge bequeathed to them, to die for want of
charity. Charity! It Is not charity. When
you give to ihe friendless aud the lonely, who,
ere this war deluged our land with strifJ,
were both happy und Ivdoved, you only pur
form a duty; you only mini an obligation
which Is as binding on your soul as tlrougii
you had sworn to take the orphan to your
arms, and shield tha defenseless from barm.
If you buve fulfilled this duty, the protnisu of
"well dour, good and faithful servant" will
come to you both Irom your country, your
posterity, and your God.
There Is aLo another cause which should
rouipel yoQ to open your coders and give

Tlio Btatornent is alarming to a contempla
The appliances possessed by our whole
country aro only equ il to thorto of one yard
in Great Britain! What if a foreign war was
to occur? what if tho vessels of Furopo were
to cross the sea and thuuder their iron salutes
on tho shores of Ihe New World ? We would
bo found defenseless, wo could only lncreaso
our navy by private contracts, and no system
atized governmental ctlbrt could be made.
There will b3 no time to remedy tlio evil.
When the enemy are thundering at the gates
is not tho occasion for commencing prepara
tion. It rests upon those members who dis
regard the Secretary's views ; who, tor merely
pnrty ends or local prejudice, continue, to
Blight his advice aud warning, and still vote
against the establishment of a yard at League
Island. With them rests the responsibility ,
aud tho country will hold them responsible.
The next war which rages in our laud may
bo with a foreign power, and as the Secretary
says, they may "direct upon our shore:) a
couroc of operations similar to those which wo
have applied to the Southern coast for sup
pressing the Hebcinon."
Thon v, hen our coast Is blockaded, it will be
no time erect a Navy Yard or even to build
vessels. In enso of tho selection of New Lon
don, we would have to cause to be erected arti
ficial fortifications, which would domand an
immense investment of luuds, while at League
lisluud naturo has lent her aid to art to form
a position to defy the assaults of foes both on
land and sea. Tho Secretary presents a num
ber of cogent reasons for the selection of Phila
delpl.Ia, which, If slighted by Congress, will
lay the consequent evil at tho door of iUi op-
poscn. The whole report abouuila in useful
suggt stions, and as a source of naval informa
tion has lo superior of its kiud in the archive:!

Before the result of tho November election
reached England, tho Timet hoped for the
success of McC1.1tM.AN. During the cam
paign it threw ull the Influence it possesses iu
this country Into tho Peace-Uckot sciles, and
uniformly strove to create the impression that
the Democratic candidates wcie tho only mon
w he could save the nation from ruin. But the
people understood Jotiu Bull's uluLstor motives,
and they perceived that the truo aim of
English writers, and tbo meaning of English
gold scattered lavishly about In certain
portions of the country, was to assist in
electing a President who would consent ulti
mately to a division of the Republic. Lng
land's jealousy of the American people is
notorious, and nothing would so gratify her as
the weakening of their jtower by a separation
of the Northern from tho Southern S ates.
She fully c mpreh suds the n.otto, "Uul ed
wo stund, divided we fall;"' and she Is ptr
fi ctly conscious of the fact, that when th 1 wit
is ended, and peace and unity aro r torod,
that tho . moricun nation will have become a
nation ot soldiers. This la Biillleient cause of
alarm in itself; but the fact that the United
Hates Navy Is now equal, If not superior, 19
F.iirrlanil's, Is more startling Mil). She cannot
brook that the sceptre of the seas shall be
snatched from her grasp and transferred to
the m.i'rnl'lcent young U rpuhlic of the West
Hence her policy was to 11-c every me ens nt
her command to secure the election of those
men in the North who were favorable to "let
ting the South depart in pi tie." But tho
Irecmcn of the North did not, loo'c tiii'oit ;h

Accordingly the Ti.-v s tacVs nnd says that "it

Major-General Dana, who commands tha
District of Vlcksburg, and who was lu com
mand In this city somo months since, does not
believe in ollowiug Rebel women the privilego
of enjoying the protection of tho United States
flag, while at tbo same time they r.ro engaged
in lurtheriug tho interests of tho Rebellion.
Vlcksburg women were notorious for their
bitter hostility to Union men and the Union
cause before that city surrendered to General
Gkajst;1 and although many of them left tho
place after its occupation by our army, a
largo number remained, preferring the cer
tainty of protection and tho at-surnnco ol food
under the old flog, to tho roving life and tho
starvation which stared at them fiom tho
But it appears that they have not all re
frained from using tbeir Influence and efforts
in behalf of tho rebellious Idol to which they
were joined, several of them having been de
tected in carrying mails aud smuggling goods
through the lines, or to tho Rebel prisoners lu
the Vlcksburg jaiL This violation of faith
with tho authorities who were taking caro of
and feeding theee treacherous females, was too
wanton and mischievous tt? be overlooked, an J
General Dana promptly determined to make
an example of Uve of tho most notorious, for
others to profit by.
As an expedition was about setting out for
tbo interior of Mlsslseippl, a short time
since, he ordered that tho cavulry commander
should take charge of theso women, aud "drop
t'uem down" at or beyond tlio Big Black river,
prohibiting them from returning to the Uulon
lines daring Uie war. The order was obeyed,
and tho reKllioiw matrons for they wero all
married, having tho proper "Mrs." attached to
their names were "dropped beyond tho Big
Black," where they will have amplo t'11.1 1 to
it fleet upon tho mutability of earthly thingsi
and the uncertainty of Rebel mails, and fe
males, wht n en route through tho Foderal
linen. General Dava exhibits a flrmness
which some of onr other Generals, Command
ing Districts, might Imitate without disadvan
tage to the service, however much it would
Interfl'rc with tho little IntrlgufB and affected
galiai try to those who, while speaking fair,
cover their barred by deceit.
