The coming of Christmas is like the
interposition of mercy for the tcuineiinjr
of justice. Nature is clothed in her seve
rest aspect. The leaves of the furct-t are
on?, the flowers bloom not, the sky is
overhung with clouds, hiding the sun
from-view, and the air is raw and bitter
cold. Humanity moves about mufiled it:
j-rcat coats, shawls, and furs, or sticks
cloeo to the acceptable warmth of the Src.
The streams are frozen over, or float on
their bosom great masses of ice. The
cattle crouch and seek any slicker that
breaks the force of the howling wind.
Just at this time Christmas comes and
makes a holiday, when
"Blightly o'er the cheerful hall
Flares the heaped hearth, and friends and
kindred meet,
-And the glad mother round her festive board
Beholds her children, separated long
.Amid the wide world's wavs, Assembled now
A eight at which Affection lightens up
"With smiles the eve that age has long be-
Perhaps the 23th of December is not
the anniversary of our Savior's birth.
Nor is it a matter of much moment wheth
er it is or not. No season of the vear could
1)2 more appropriate than this, when the
rigors of winter have just fairly begun, for
the celebration of the day oa which the an
gel appeared to the shepherds of Judea
bringing t;good tidings of great joy, which
shall be to all people." It is a da' brim
ful of memories of mercy, humility, and
goodness, interjecting itself at a time when
such memories are mo-:t needed. It is a tlny
of joy and reunion, just as the event it
commemorates was the event of iov accom
plished for the purpose of the reunion of
man to his God.
No other holiday of the year is fuller of
opportunities than Christmas. Xo other
holiday of the year is so worthy of oppor
tunities as Christmas. Children are tri
umphant on Christmas day. They have
not quite seen Kriss Kringle, although they
laid awake all the fore part of the night
until their eyelids became too heavy not
to close over the weary pupil just on pur
pose to get t;a peep at him." The festive
board groans with good things ready to be
eaten. The stuffing has burst through the
turkey's breast, as if it wanted to see what
was going on. The rich jellies quiver in
the cups, as though dreading the quick ap
proaching moment of their consumption.
The linen table cover seems to compete
with the snow for whiteness. The dishes
make an ominous clatter, in honor of so
important an occasion of festivity. Soon
all things arc ready for the feast. It will
be a better feast if appropriate gifts are
unostentatiously made to those whose life
is led amid daily want and constant strug
gling for food for bare sustenance, for fuel,
for warmth enough to overcome the worst
blasts of winter, and for raiment only suf
ficient to be a jest with the angry elements.
Headers, one and all, a merry Christmas
to you !
In a popular Government like ours, where
the people virtually nsses3 the taxes, as well
as pay them, the popular will, if not the pop
ular "prejudice, must be listened to in the
preparation of revenue lars. Justice must,
in some instances, y it-Id to expediency, and
Eomo legitimate sources of revenuo may b
unavailable because a resort to them might
be odious to a. majorily of tax-payers. Re
port cf the Secretary of the Treasury.
It is not seldom a matter of open regret
that the public men of our day are net the
equals in intellect and character of those
of preceding generations. While we can
have but little svmp.ithy wicli such persons
as speak of the golden age as being of the
past, and lament ''the days now gone that
were better than these," we cannot but
regard it as an unpropitious sign that so
many men, high in public station, should
make their principal business the trimming
of their sails to suit the popular current.
It is the business of the demagogue and
mere politician to inquire what is and what
is not the passion of the hour. But who
ever aspires to be more than these has a
different task. It is for him to inquire
after what is wise, patriotic, advantageous,
and just. These things he should advo
cate. It may. be that the popular will de
nies a full measure of justice and wisdom,
and of course in such case the aim thould
be to secure the best that can be obtained.
If this is not the true rule, then there is
no statesmanship or statesmen, but only
dcma-ocrlsm and demaeocrues. Of course
a measure or policy may be both just and
popular. Hut in administrative affairs, it
is hard to conceive that justice must yield
to -cspJiency. The will of the people
jnust of course be obeyed, but it does not
folio ;V that the duty of a public officer is
merely to listen and obey. The Secretary
states the crw'o rather broadly.
The Johnstown Tribune hears that
Hon. Cvrns L. Pcrshirg, of that town, is
likely to be placed on the Jct democratic
Stato ticket for either GcVpracr or-Su-j.rciiio
Legal Tender.
Contradictory rumors are afloat in rela
tion to what will be the decision of the
United States. Supremo Court as to the
constitutionality of the act of Congress
making greenbacks a legal tender. A re
port, started by the Xcw York Trlbvne,
gave out that every member of the Court,
excepting one, would agree in the uncon
stitutionality of the act. Another report
denies the Tribune s statement.
Assuming that the Court will decide
the notes not to be a legal tender under
the Constitution, the question which must
interest all persons is, What will be the
effect of such decision ?
"Whatever value these notes at present
possess necessarily rests on the promise of
the Government to pay them in coin.
Were the Government to-day keeping that
promise, a dollar in greenbacks would be
worth a dollar in gold or silver, if not a
cent or so more on account of their greater
convenience for the purposes of exchange.
Were there no hope whatever of their re
demption by the Government, they would
be worth nothing. Their present value is
about seventy-four cents on the dollar.
The remaining twenty-six cents is the
amount they are discounted, principally
and primarily for the same reason that any
note is discounted which is pa-able at a
future day. We say principally, because
a small part of this discount may bo caused
by speculators. An adverse decision by
the Supreme Court could not diminish
their value so far as the ultimate paj-mcnt
is concerned, for the Government would
still be bound by their terms. Yet such a
decision would put it in the power of any
person so disposed to refuse them in pay
ment of debt and demand coin. Of course
any creditor could then enforce his demand
in our Courts. To the extent that such
demands would be made, would the green
back currency be depreciated. In ordina
ry mercantile transactions, they would pass
current as at present, or otherwise business
must stop. In payment of outstanding
obligations, the same motives that influ
ence men to ask for gold rather than
greenbacks after the latter had depreciated
in value would cause them to require gold
now when in their power. Yet we arc not
able to see that such a decision should
cause any alarming depreciation of their
value so long as the people would pay and
receive them in their daily affairs as now.
That they would do so, appears evident
when we consider that any other course
would be the same as the instant with
drawal of all the government notes from
circulation, thus producing untold disaster.
The very probability or possibility of the
Supreme Court so deciding affords an ad
ditional reason for resumption of specie
payments as speedily as possible.
Speclflc Contracts In Coin.
It is proposed y Secretary M'Cullough,
in his report to Congress, to legalize by a
legislative act any contract in which it is
stipulated that payment shall be made in
Let us suppose such an act now in force.
Suppose, also, that a contract is made un
der it for some piece of work to be paid
for a year hence in coin. If the Govern
ment has by that time resumed specie
payment, well and good. lut if not, then
that contract, and every other like it, by
making an increased demand for gold, en
hances its price and causes resumption to
be more difficult.
Such measures do not touch the .real
evil. They themselves are necessarily
based on the presumption that a resuming
of specie payments is intended, yet they
can have no proper influence in producing
that result.
Governor Geary announces by proc
lamation that two million four hundred
and fourteen thousand eight hundred and
sixteen dollars of the principal of the State
debt have been canceled since the last re
port of the Commissioners of the Sinking
Fund, a period of fourteen months. This
is the cheerful Christmas greeting of a
Hcpublican Administration to the Com
monwealth, and while we accept it with
thanks, let us remember it next fall when
called on to choose again new trustees for
the management of the common weal. If
the people of Pennsylvania will persevere
in electing Republican Governors and
Legislatures for the next few terms, we
shall surely be able -to extinguish the
democratic legacy of debt which for so
long has pressed so heavily on the State.

V. S. Senator.
Ebensburg, Pec. 21, ISCo.
To the Editors of The AUeghanian :
' The prominent gentlemen named for
U.' S. Senate are Gen. J. K. Moorhead,
Thomas M. Marshall, Esq., J. Edgar
Thompson,' Esq., and John Scott, Esq. r
We know that Gen. Moorhead is a good
practical man, well versed in the iron in
terests of" 'Pennsylvania, and that he has
done good service for many years in Con
gress. Thomas 31. Marshall, Esq., is a
profound lawyer and a very intelligent
gentleman. J. Edgar Thompson is an A
No. 1 railroad man and a good thinker.
In addition to these is Win. J. Kemble. a
very enterprising gentleman and a good
financier ; he proved himself such, during
his term as State Treasurer. These gen
tlemen compose the Eastern and Western
lights, against whom Ave have not one word
of reproach to utter. Now, we have Jno.
Scott, Esq., as a central man, whose quick
perception and happy faculty of grasping
the important questions agitating the
country, coupled with his ability to discuss
them, render him a very desirable man
for the crisis ; besides Jno. Scott came to
the rescue of the llepubliean party when
it needed just such men ; for it cannot be
denied that men like Jno. Scott, Col. Jno.
W. Forney, Hon. Peter Shannon, Dan'l
Daugherty and many more of the same
calibre, were not an acquisition to the He
publican party. If Republics are ungrate
ful, let it net be said the llepubliean party
is. I do not mean that other men have
no claims, but I do say that at the an
nouncement of the name of Jno. Scott as
U. S. Senator, the people throughout the
entire State will hail it as a triumph of
merit, whilst it will astablish the fact that
our llepubliean legislators are actuated by
no demoralizing influence.

Speech by Gera. Grant.
At the banquet given to Gen. Grant by
the Union League of New York, on Tues
day evening, he made the following tcre
and significant remarks, which constitute
the longest speech he ever originated and
delivered :
"Gentlemen of the Union League: It
is with extreme regret that I Gad mjself
unable to respond to the warmth of feel
ing with which the toast has been receiv
ed. You all know how unaccustomed I
am to public ppeakins. ljOU laughter.
How undesirable a thing I think it is, and
how little good it usually does, cheers,
and how desirous I am to see more of the
public men follow the good example,
which, I believe, in this particular, if iu
no other, 1 pet them. Immense cheers.
I must, however, express my thanks to
the Union League of New York, and oth
er cities, for great benefits they have con
ferred upon the Government during the
rebellion. I wish to acknowledge the
liberality towards myself and towards the
soldiers serving agaiust the rebellion and
to thaiik them for it."
There is homely truth ia what Gen.
Grant eays about public men refraining
from the utterance, of rashly formed opin
ions, as well as from the promulgation of
harsh personal strictures. The bane of
American polities is the disposition mani
fested by men of small abilities to talk
to blather and bluster. The people are to
blamo who have so long tolerated the evil
of a diarrhea of wor ii". Let Gen. Grant'H
example be followed, and we will add to
American politics a practical effect, which
cannot fail to prove highly beneficial to
rjublic affairs.
