New York Evening Post: —The Presi
dent could not easily say anything strong
er for the wise and safe policy of getting
rid of the legal-tender notes than he said
in his message and in his letter of the 4th
Ilis conversation with General Ilawley
Fridry night, of which a report is printed
in the Herald Saturday, is of interest not
because the President said anything new,
but because he reaffirmed what he had
lie believed that a discussion of the
greenback question will show that "the
true issue" is now, as heretofore, "be
tween inflationists 011 one side and the
friends of sound, stable constitutional
currency on the other.
lie urges hard-money men to vote
against proposals "which arc against an
early return to a constitutional currency,"
and to vote for all proposals "which, like
Mr. Bayard's, look to the action recom
mended by the message."
He does not regard the matter "as a
mere party question," hut he warns the
Republicans that if they are not true to
sound principles they may enable the
Democratic party "if it is wise to carry
the country in 1880."
The President stands fast. Lot us

The New York Tribune of Sunday pub
lishes an interesting list of the residents
of that city who pay, avoid and ignore
the assessiuents on their personal proper
ty. The table shows that the commis
sioners of taxes assessessed per
sons. of this number the pittiful few of
1,899 pay, "and these," says the Tribune
"paying tax on sums greatly reduced
from the original assessment, are among
the poorer classes of people in the city."
Those who will pay no tax are 0,219, of
the wealthiest citizens, who march up to
the assessors' office and swear they have
no personal property. The balance, 8,-
505, merely default and lot their tax swell
the constantly growing deficiency list.
The aim of the Tribune in printing this
list is that "a lull exposeure of the ab
surdity of the system of assessment, the
ridiculous conditions under the law, and
the lax manner in which arrears are col
lected, compromised or abandoned as
worthless, will lead to the reform of the
laws and tin? improvement of tin- entire
It is said that since the fraudulent
work in Maine has been announced, Re
publican Congressmen from this State
seem to be in favor of the Legislature
choosing the electors for New York. It is
not impossible that such a course may,
eventuullj', be justified; hut it seems a
hasty conclusion at present. Nor is it
probable, although so reported from
Washington, that the majority of the Re
publican Congressional delegates from
this state, have so expressed themselves.
The conclusions of Washington corres
pondents must often lie taken cum grano
Balis, especially in times of political ex
The average speed of express trains in
this country is not, probably, over thirty
miles an hour, hut there are a few trains
which much exceed this rate. The New
York express on the Old Colony road
makes the run from Boston to Taunton,
34 miles, in 47 minutes; the Boston and
Providence Shore line express makes a
rnn of 44 miles in 00 minutes; both of
these are beaten by the Jersey City and
Philadelphia fast express, which makes
89 miles in 111 minutes, an average of a
mile in one and a quarter minutes.
