The AnDOUßßeellltellt last Thursday
that the New York, Philadelphia, and
washington Banking houses of Jay
Cooties Co. had suspended' caused a rev •
erisb anxiety throughout the whole
country. People wondered what would
co me next. Jay Cooke has been very
prominently identified with all of the
Gorernuient's heavy financial trausac-
LlOlO5 for the last ten or twelve years,'and
when his pecuniary' troubles were flashed '
along the wires on last Thursday noon,
i t was believed by many that the Nation.
ai Treasury was the heaviest loser, But
happily the belief did not prove to be
wei 1- fo an ded, for later in the day Secre
tary Richardson caused it to be stated
that his Department would lose little or
no thing through Mr. "Cooke's mb,sfor.
vines. The latter believes that hia w
ags equal his liabilities, and attributes
h3g present financial embarrassment to
ice nnproductiveness of a large number
of shares of Railroad stock which he was
c arrying. On the other hand, many ixk
i fere that Mr. Cooke is hopelessly gone,
cancially, and that his liabilities are in
e y.cst:aQ of his assets fully twenty millions
Since tlie \above was in type we notice
tcg: a great panic prevailed in Wall

it cannot MI to prove advantageous to
both alike. Whore two political papers
attempt to live on patronage that is • only
equal to the edequate Support of one,
they are.apt to become hindrances rather
than helps to the organizatioa they pro
fess to represent, for the reason that they
are mostly compelled rely to a greater er
less extent upon. aid furnished usually
by men whdse personal interests and
schemes they are in turnexpected to pro
mote by every means in their power. In
this way thiy generally become organs
of individ u als instead of reliable expo
nents of the political faith they profess
to have espoused. Public journals that
have no higher aim than to advance per
sonal interests and aspirations are often
a prolific Source of strife and dissentiou ,
in the ranks of the organization they
profess to serve, for the reason that they
are generally made thee onduits through
which all the spleen of rival factions is
poured upon the public to the serious
detriment of the cause to which they

accuse the two tournals above named
with having descended to this level, but
the unseemly controversies that some
times took place between them indicated
but too plainly a kind of rivalry from
which the common enemy was always
glad to profit. The Republicans of Bea
ver county have reason to rejoice, there
fore, that the consolidation has been at
fected. and all difficulty on this score re
ino/ved. There are other counties in
western Pennsylvania where a similar

it adopted.— Washington Reporter.
