Oa the test: question, touching this
matter, so 'Tar ptesented to COngress
daring the Carrent acssion, it is true that
most of the Republican members voted
against the continued contraction of pa
per currency. The writer 'who asserts
they did so in order to oppose the Secre
tary of the Treartny must fall into the
category of knaves or of fools. Mani
festly they did so In accordance with the
feeling prevalent among the larger num
ber of business men, 'milt was, nether's,
proper they should do, I:tot:ling a repre
sentative position. But it, is else' true
that the larger part of the Democratic
members -voted :to sustain Contraction;
that Is, voted to aturlain the general pol
icy of the Secretary, our reviewer to the
contrary" ootwithiMueding. In Ms the
Democrats clearly followed the Hard
Money traditions of their party, which
were of a later drop.
It would be idie to deny that tldlnghtt
of party advantage enter into the die.
eitadons and maneuverings relative to
the m a nagement or the finances.' The
) conatt7 Is on the eve of a Presidential
eleetion. Experience goes to Show that
monetary rcyulaion, happening at such
a conjuncture, is pretty sure to defeat the
party that chit:tees to be Inihe ascenden
cy. fact may not be creditable to
the discernment and intelligence of the
inssaest.but so it is. Uoircquently, the
Republicans are specially eolicitona to
•de over the presidential election with
oat commercial disaster; while the Dein
cents, if a break up molt come, pre
' fer its coming when it' willbe of po
litical help to them. There is nothing
marvellous in this state of, feeling, or
that calls for censure. Most men, ex

Interests as citizens whiCh far ilatiscerul

Awhile ego men were frightened at
the prospect of a collapse of prices,
which they suppoiled to be contingent on
a return to specie. They thought that

is all the yards and arsenalii. , ,, Thesg are
significant facts But when, a mass
meeting at Indianapolis refosed'io pass
resolutions agalist contraction, that was
a still more pregnant circumstance. Thls
only shows that the laws controllarr
finance are as absolute u any' other
laws, and will vindicate themselves no
matter who may oppose.
No doubt it Is of high concernment to
have the Union restored, eo that all the
States may once again hold their nor
maleelatlons to each othek and to the
general government. But it Is of yet
higher conseqience to have the Union
so restored as to make sure that al: the
sacrifices incurred during the war were
not in vain. Hero all the rebels, and all
the men who encouraged them to take
up arms, insist not simply that no
forfeitures shall be entered, but that no
guarantees "hall be exacted for future
good conduct; What these factionista
want is, that as the rebels failed to ac
complish their ends by getting out of the
Union, they shall-now succeed•by stay
ing in. That would , be lucky for them,
in case the result could be: brotlght
about, tier would make the martyred
patriots turn over in their graves.
Before Hr. -- Liscour was usaminated
Mr. Jonsson avowed his purpose to
break with the Republican party. He
did not want the Union dissolved; but
he wanted just as little that Rerublican
ideas should prevail In the national set
tlement. Hence, upon his acc,silon to
power, after a abort period spent in dis
simulation, so elemstly over wrought
by prodigious threatenings Leto excite
the fears of all discerning men, he went
over to the rebel side; made factions op.
. position to Congress; and his ad far sue
ceed .in obtaining followers in the
Southern States as to impede reconstruc
tion. Yet this man hafthe effrontery
to declaim lemma reconstruction pro
gresses so slowly. If he would only give'
los in to that end, the whole work
could be closed up In ninety days.

Notwithstanding hie zeal Mr. Train
