THE VOLUNTEER ON FACTS AND
Two weeks since a gentleman handed
us a communication relative to the
Democratic ticket lately nominated in
this county, and the connection of the
Volunteer with the nominations and
candidates. Demon a Democrat, a gen
tleman of ability, standing and attain
ments, and his communication embodied
much of the sentiment that has boon
expressed by loading Democrats through
out the county since their primary elec
tion. Wo inserted it, of course. The
Volunteer had the effrontery last week
to assort that it was tho editorial ex
pressions of the llEnAmi, put into the
shape of a communication for 'effect, and
to say that this was "an old and trans
parent dodge," and 'on this we rise to
The lIER.!,:to is not conducted on the
"dodge" plan, and if it were , it is quite
probable we should not select " old'and
transparent dodges." Weleg, to assure
our neighbors that when We have any
thing to urge against them or any of
their . candidates, we aro not under, the
necessity of shielding ourselves behind a
communication, nor do wo resort to the
somewhat less reputable practice of as
serting what we don't believe: The .
Vorunteer people know perfectly well,.
that the editor; o,( . _:the, HERALD never
penned a line of the communication ;
they know...fp:Sher that, it was written
by a Democrat, and they can guess the
author accurately enough for their own
purposes. In addition to this, the only
possible reason for this attack on us, is
the want of other material for a leading
article, as they know there is not an
intelligent Democrat in town who has
the slightest suspicion that we had any
thing to do with the communication,
except its publication.
The Volunteer then proceeds to venti
late a discovery, which it does thus.
"Had it been a "sot up" affair, as was
the Republican ticket, there might have
been just cause for complaint. What we
mean, the following amusing incident
will illustrate : - A week Or so before the
Republicifit Convention, a leading Re
publican entered THE HERALD office
with a communication recommending the
nomination of a prominent Republican of
this town for the position of State Sena
tor. One of the editors glanced over
the communication, and 'then. replied :
" Well, this is all very well, but I believe
it is generally understood that I am to be
the nominee." The gentleman remarked
that such might have been the under
standing around TnE HERALD office, but
ho had not hoard of it before. e left
the office, and the communication H
The material part of this is untrue. On
tho Tuesday before our delegate election,
a gentloman who was in the office, said
to ne that he "intended to write a com
munication recommending apt. Porter
for State Senator, as he was a good man,
and no one had yet - been spoken of for
that nomination." We replied that our
name had been mentioned as a candidate,
and we believed it Was' likely we
would be nominated, but that Capt.
Porter was a good man, and- if a com
munication recommending him were
written we would insert it. The gentle
matt said ho had not heard our name
mentioned, and with this the conversa
tion closed. 119 prepaMd ?no communica-
Non, nor had ho ono with fiim, and if ho
or Any other Republican in the county
had presented if, -- datiminiioation recOi

position, it would have been published

SUCCESS OF THE NEW LOAN
Contrary to the predictions of all the
Democratic politicians, and in spite, of
tho fears 'of that class of Republicans,
who aro always ready to doubt the suc
cess of any measure to which our party
is committed, the now loan has been Suc
cessful. The first instalment of $206,-
000,00, or rather what ran:mined of it
after-the subscriptions made by the Banks_
directly after_ it was offered, was taken
by a company, of English_and_ American
Bankers, some days since. Tho bonds
were negotiated at the face value in
gold, with an abatement of one-half per
cent allowed by the funding bill for ad
vertising and commissions. It was ar
ranged that eighty millions of the bonds
thus_contracted for, should ho given to
the European bankers and the remain
ing fifty millions retained for sale in this
country. The European managers im
mediately advertised for subscriptioni to
the bonds they had bought, and in a
siure — day — tlroy — lra - d — subscititirms
amounting to many thousands more than
the bonds they had purchased from the
Government. In this country the de
maud for them has been so great that
the entire fifty millions have also been
disposed,. and there remains now not a
single bond in the hands of the Syndicate
for sale. •
This success is almost as marvelous as
it is gratifying. It has been accom
plished at a time most unfavorable for
such an undertaking. The European
markets have been filled with the enor
mous loans, made necessary by the late
French and German war. In this
country, our vast railroad and manufac
turing enterprises keep before the public
largo amounts of investments, bearing a
high rate of, interest, and which aro
usually offered at a heavy discount.
There was; in addition, the adverse in
fluence exerted by those who knew that
the success of the funding bill would
add greatly. td - the credit and popularity
of Grant's Administration. But in
spite of all these oh,stacles, such has
been the confidence of the people of
this and foreign countries, in the in.
tegrity and capacity of those who ad
minister the government, that theSe new
bonds bearing a low interest, and sold
for their face in gold, have been seized
upon with an eagerness that is truly
marvelous. Henceforth there are no fears
of failure. Within a. year, the entire
debt of the United States will be founded
in a new loan, and that too on terms
more favorable than are at present
required by the funding bill.
The benefits arising from the success
of this measure are almost incalculable.
The amount already funded will save the
nation two millions per year in interest,
while the ftmding of the whole loan-will
maim the annual saving more than
'm i micry TIMMONS. It will remove all
clangor of the loan which is hold in for
eign countries being thrown on our mar
kets. It will decrease the rates of inter
est throughout every part of our country,
and thus stimulate enterprise and busi
ness at all points. And, finally, it will
secure to the country, for many years, a
continuance of Republican rule, which
has given us govornment instead of an
,instead of war, and BON
oncy and credit instead of bankruptcy

THE DEMOCRATIC RAID ON THE
NEW YORK CITY TREASURY
Tho raids made by the Democratic
party upon the City Treasury are "elicit
ing much comment throughout the
country. The Mayor has been asked to
publish a detailed account of expendi
tures, but has declined doing so. The
Standard of that city says : Tammany
has not mustered courage to publish the
demanded accounts. Stich large figures
might scare oven the repeaters in the
sorvico of the Ring. Controller Con
nolly divided the figures to conquer
them, giving us the expenditures for ono
month instead of thirty. Even then the
sums aro appalling to those who must
pay. An instructive view of their enor
mity inay ho had by comparing the ex
penses of Now York with those of
Brooklyn, which has half our popula
tion, three-fifths our number of houses,
and a considerable excess of our terri
torial size. In this we have the author
ity of tho Brooklyn Eagle, a Democratic
paper not suspected of undue prejudice
against its party.. For the 'month of

Brooklyn pays $5,166 per month, New
