The Attitude of the Copperheads in the
• Legislature. " •••• •• • •
The copperhead leaders irrthe Senate' made.
a bold effort, yesterday, to escape the 'Oditim
of their past action. The men compOsing the
minority in the .Senate, are responsible. for
the increase of the State debt by givingto for
eign bond-holders gold in paying the interest
on those bonds when the currency issued by
the National Government should have been
alone tendered. It was a grind plundering
scheme arranged between the Copperhead
leaders and our British creditors. ;; It was per
sisted in, when the judgment of the Legisla
ture and the wishes of the people of the
Commonwealth were clearly against such a"
payment. But the opportunity was teofavor
able for dealing a fatal blow) at the. ;National
currency. It was too grand a chance to im
pair the national credit. Hence, our English
creditors, instead of receiving the; six per,
cent. interest due; were actually paid at..the
rate of nine per cent. By this course the Te -•
mocracy in , the Legislature, backed by a
Democratic State Treasurer, increased the State
debt a million of dollars.
Now mark the dodge of the Democratic
leaders to escape the odium of their action on
the interest question. They now propose to,
pay the Soldiers in the field in gold-or its equi
valent in notes. This is a bait to the soldier.
After having voted to disfranchise the soldiers
—after having'gone all lengths to degrade and
disgrace the soldiers, these same men begin
to shift their positions, and now advocate a
measure to impair the financial, operations, of
the National Government, by proposing
that the soldier's shall be paid in gold. A few
weeks since" these men insisted that . we were
morally bound to give the English gold or its
equivalent in payment of the interest on- the
bonds held against the State. Now the same
men assert that the American holders of the
five-twenty bonds have no more right to gold
than the Soldier ; and - that .if the'
`soldier .i¢
compelled to take greenbacks - at their full
value, so'Slionld the holdereof the t5-20!s' be
compelled also to take the-same paper in pay
' ment of theirixiterest. This is the logic of the
Democratic leaders. It is a Rusillaninions at
tempt to escape the odium ,which they earned
i a overpaying our English 'Creditors : If .they
clan delude the soldieliiith the iaca that they
are his friends,their.first, object will be gained;
and if they eau destroy thetnational honorby
depreciiiting the national 'credit they will
have accoMpliihed their full ptirpese:,:' .
In forcing :this proposition, on, the :atten
tion of the Legislature, the :Democratic' lead
ers have no idea thifit They'do
not make ,theoffer to ; pay tirseldiergald,
good faith. ,They are not . interested in -the

a degree as to' seek . the increase o t f his 'pay: ,
What they, are after is to . play t uponhis_prejti-:'

removal could be carried out before the whole
matter was fairly brought before the people.
With her money constantly to-back her in her
projects, Philadelphia has been flattering her

who have blien'secretly•atirbik
ness will shortly raise a storm about their
heads, which will ittleast• cool their ardorlor
this removal. , -
—The following article from the Pittsburg
Gazette puts this matter in a light which
cannot fail to win the acquiescence of all who
have the real, nterests of the Commonwealth
at stake: r •-. •
Thefirst thought that suggests itself to our
mind : is that the removal, is not called for by
the „people.„ With the sole exception of,these
whoteside in PhiladelPhia, thelocation of the
caPital isaccentable to the t peOPle of :the whole
State. , Itis centrally located, arid,' whether
correctly or incorrectly, they think - the 'loca
tion, a good-one. Philadelphia only desires
ihp removal, and we do not need' ne of their
own lawyers to.tell us that their motives' for
_desiring it are selfish. It is Philadelphia
agehmtlhe rest of the State. What'the peo
ple do riot ask for,' should not be done, at least
, nothastily
. .
While we rejoide at every evidence of the
. .
prosperity of our sister city, we submit that
it is not
_generous in her to seek to degrade
the remainder:. of the'State 'into a mere prii
vincial appendage, - while she carries offall the
honors: Philadelphia isalready a 'Mighty
city, while the country,on the other hand,
needs developing. Instead, therefore, of re
moving the seat,of government and the pub
lic buildings tOPhiladelphia, the citizens. of
that city should feel. proud to see every eounty
in the State honored withthe location of some
public institution—a college, or farm school,
or military academy, or some beneVolent .in
stitution. Such a policy would go far toward
opening up the vast resources of the interior,
and, would besides do much to break down
the antagonism of feeling rhich now, exists
between country and city. , 'Philadelphia can
well afford to be generous and just., Indeed,
if she were only , ,to consult her own interest,
it is her true poliby to build' up the country,
in every legitimate way. •
It is not best to centralize power in a coun
try like ours. The evil effects of the'central
izing policy,are , seen everywhere throughout
th - e whole world. Paris is France; Londonds
England. ; . ."4The blessings of , grolernment,

more influence upon our legislation than is
right and proper:, This she does : through her
heavy capitalists 7 —her money, Would she ex
ercise less inflnence--would the, morals °tour,
legislators be, improved:-it' the capital of the.
State were legated, within her limits?
Even rere it wise to remove the capital at
that time Li. -surely not now,
we are in the midst ota great,.national 'eon r .
