HOW TO OBTAIN THE HERALD REG.
We often have complaints from residents of Savan
nah and Hilton Head that they are not able ahvaya to
oiit ain the Pxrai.p. The demand is sometimes bo
great as to exhaust an Edition very soon at*or its issue,
and those who wish to have the llviiAi.n regularly,
should subscribe for it. We have faithful corriera in
Savanhnb and at Hilton Head, and through them we
always serve regular subscribers first.
The great financial problem of the olay is
the best mode of reducing the volume of the
currency, so as to resume specie paynfents
with the least possible delay, and withtheleast
shock to the industrial and commercial inter
ests of the country. Too sudden a reduction
of the volume of circulating medium that
has become depreciated from excess, has been
invariably attended bv too rapid a fall of
prices, by pecuniary pressure and by mercan
There is but one way of resumption of
Enecie payments, and that is by reducing
tbe excess of the currency, if constituted of
paper promise? to pay. There is two modes,
and two modes only, of effecting this reduc
tion. 1. By funding. 2. By not re-issuiug
but cancelling the currency paid in for tares.
The objection to funding is that by the con
version of unfunded into funded debt the an
nual charge for interest is increased. The other
mode of reduction is attended by a saving in
the payment for annual interest, but it is
hazardous to all interests but the class of
public creditors unless, made with extreme
A mode of resumption has been suggested
In one of tbe New York papers tbe efficacy
or success of which we cannot comprehend.
The writer proposes the repeal of the Legal
Tender act. The object to be attained is
a reduction in the volume of paper money.
That this is to be accomplished by the repeal
of the Legal Tender act is assumed not proved
We can clearly comprehend, it funding does
not take place, that as the expenditure of the
government diminishes by the reduction of
our military fovces and the consequent non
issue of paper money for their payment, or by
the cancellation of a portion of the money
paid in for taxes. The first of the9e opera
tions prevents an increase and the last effects
Whether we fund our floating debt or can
cel it presents a choice of evils. Would less
mischief result from the augmentation of the
capital of our debt and the increase in con
sequence of annual interest, or the cancella
tion or non-issue of the notes as they are
paid in for government dues, is the practical
problem to be solved. We should be very
much averse to any augmentation of the pub
lic debt, and the annual charge for that debt,
but it is, in our opinion, a less dangerous al
ternative than a too sudden reduction of the
circulating medium and a too rapid fall
The credit of the United States is now in
the most palmy condition. The determina
tion of our people that there shall be no re
pudiation of our public obligations, and the
sufficiency of our resources, material and fi
nancial, with the readiness of our people to
pay the taxes, by which those obligations
may be met—give ample assurance to foreign
tis well ns domestic capitalists, and loans to
any extent may be negotiated to defray the
unavoidable expenses of the government. —
These loans may be put on the market grad
ually, and would, we have little doubt, biing
their par value.
The maximum of taxation, direct and indi
rect, has been reached. The desirable con
summation of a resumption of specie pay
ments will be attained with the least shock
to private as well as public credit, by a pro
gressive retnrn to a specie standard, lhan by
. such speedy resumption as appears to be
called for at the North. History throws
some light on this question. Our readers
will not fail to recollect that the Bank of
Eugiarid came back to specie payments after
a suspension of 25 years, when her notes
were depreciated only to the extent of SO per
cent, and the banks of the United States re
mained in suspension during and subsequent
to the war of m 2 until the year 1817.
Thf Greai Political iKMueti of the Day.
In our paper of yesterday we published
the platform of principles adopted by the
late Massachusetts Republican Convention.
To-day we give the speech of Mr. Charles
Sumner, President of the Convention, and
t.he speech of Gen. Morgan, the nominee of
the Ohio Democrats for Governor of that
State. We lay these documents before our
readers in order that they may have a full
understanding of the important issues in
volved in the approaching Northern elections.
While the people of the Southern States have
no practical part in the discussion and set
tlement of these issues, yet they cannot be
indifferent spectators of a contest so deeply
involving their political, social and material
future. All that the South can do to aid the
cause of rational liberty and to preserve the
country from moral, social, and polical ruin,
is to give its united and unwavering counte
nance anti support to President Johnson and
the conservative men of the North, who are
laboring to check tbe tide of radicalism and
to reconstruct and maintain the American
Union on the basis of the Constitution.

To the Sal annuh Ilerahl;
The voice of the dominant parly o» New
England has no uncertain soued upon the
great question of reconsti notion, whether you
seek it in the letter of the merebaots of Bos
ton to President Johnson, the elections that
have taken place in Vermont and Maine, or
the sentiments that prevailed without ques
tion in the Massachusetts Convention. What
that voice is, perhaps I need not tell you,
but it is a part of the history of the times
which is of interest throughout the country
It is that the Southern States recently in re
| iR-llion shall not be admitted to participation
I in the Government until sufficient guarantees
I are given for the future ; and that, to that
! end, the negroes ought to be allowed to vote,
j because they have been loyal, and the white
men ought to lie disfranchised, at least for
the present, because they have been disloyal.
If you take Charles Sumner aa the exponent
of the New England Republicans, and no
man more fairly represents any party in the
world, that party believe that the “rebellion
is only disarmed” ; that submission to the
armies is a trick to restore the insurgent
States to power ; that justice to the freedmeo
is not intended ; that tbe national debt will
be repudiated, if it can be effected by a uuion
with the so-called copperhead party of the
North ; and that there will be no security for
the future attained after all the horrors of
war. The remedy suggested by the same
voice is to keep out the States, for a time,
by the action of Congress ; to do away with
all distinctions of race under the laws; and to
demand from the South, as a condition pre
cedent to the restoration of the Union, guar
anties to support the national debt, and not
to assume the rebel debt. You will observe
that Republicanism in New England differs
from the thing called by the same name in
other sections. Neither the Ohio doctrine of
the separation of the races, on the one hand,
nor the Pennsylvania doctrine of confisca
tion, are adopted by the pa rty here. On the
contrary, it is distinctly asserted that the
labor of the blacks is needed where they are,
and that the whites should euter at once into
all tbe l ights of citizens except the rights to
vote and to hold office. I suppose that the
leading men of the Republican party in New
England would go for the immediate pardon
of every Southern man upon these condi
tions which I have mentioned. This is the
voice of the dominant party in New England,
hut I apprehend that it will not much dis
turb the South now that Andrew Johnson
has expressed so decided an opinion
in favor of trusting the South in
al! the rights and duties of citizens, and of
withdrawing all restraints from them except
such as are shown to be absolutely necessary.
Tiiat the North will sustain the President, I
have no doubt; that it wili sustain the na
tional credit and tbe freedom of the blacks,
guaranteed to them under the great seal of
the Union, 1 feel equally certain. If the
people of the South accept the accomplished
facts which the war has settled, they will
have no occasion to borrow trouble about
the sayings or doings of a faction which will
be powerless in the North; no party here
can stand upon the doctrine that the nation
shall decide the right of franchise in the
States. When it adopts that idea, it places
itself in opposition, not only to tbe South,
which has encaged in the rebellion, but the
slave States which were loyal, and many
of the Northern States which gave a majori
ty of votes for Lincoln in 1800, and again in
The Massachusetts Convention
The Republican Convention of Massachu
setts assembled in Worcester to-day. Charles
Sumner presided, and made an able speech,
which may lie taken as the expression of the
party in New Eugland. Gen. Butler was
the second Vice President, ami he responded
to the call of the Convention with an ex
pression of his views. You will, undoubt
edly, receive his remarks in full. No man
is received with more enthusiasm in a Re
publican assembly of any kind in New Eug
land than Ben. Butler. Still he ia not trust
ed. I doubt if he could obtain a nomination
for any office ol importance in the Common
wealth. Ilia record was not sound before
the war. His conversion was too sudden.—
Ben. evidently wants office. He is still a Ma
jor General without a command, hut that
cannot continue a great while; and he has
no idea of returning to the tame life of a
lawyer. IleVas always a great blusterer
and bluffer in court, and he has been blus
tering and bluffing on so large a scale tor
four years that it would seem like small busi
ness to return to the arena of the court
room with his sarcasm and brow-beating. It
would be like Jove hurling his thunder
bolts at mice and such small game. By the
way, It may not be known to your readers,
that the Middlesex connty bar, of which But
ler was for many years a member, has a rep
utation throughout the State for the indeco
rous behavior of the lawyers practicing there.
They brow-beat each other, the witnesses, the
jury and the court, and a gentleman who
goes there from any other county, for the
first time, finds that Billingsgate is worth
more to him there than law or evidence. I
am Informed by a gentleman familiar with
the practice of the county that Butler is, or
was, tbe originator of this reputation, and
that every’ limb of the law there is more or
less of an imitator. But I have wandered
away from my subject, though not very far
away, for if Ben. Butler had made a military
reputation commensurate with his preten
sions and swagger, he might have been nomi
nated for Governor, which Is the same as
elected. It ia true that Col. A. H. Bullock,
of Worcester, has been waiting for Gov.
! Anderson to retire for three years at least,
mid thai be has, all along, been tolerably
i sure of the succession, especially as there
j P m Re no contest to speak of in Massachu
! w ‘itß. But if there had been a contest, where
! could the party have gone for a military
hero i -Neither Banks nor Butler would do ;
Gen. Gordon (who has resumed the prac
tice of the law in Boston) is not so
much that way of thinking; Hooker
(a Massachusetts man by birth) is not
eligible; and of all the others there Is
not one whose merits are conspicuous. If
the. party depended for Its sucesas upon a
military hero it would hare a poor ahow. I
don’t know wlnt tbe Democrats will do uiG
loss they nominate Gun Devin* again. Col.
Bullock, the Republican nominee, is a genial
gentlenvm, wlio was an old line Whig up to
quite a late dal. He is naturally a conser
vative man, hut he wants to lie Governor, and
that is about his only failing. One general
was found to grace the ticket—Gen. Briggs—
nominated for Auditor. Brig. Gen. Minks
made a strenuous effort for the nomination
ol Secretary of State, agaiust the present in
cumbent, Mr. Warner, but failed. The plat
form adopted you must see for yourself. It

of the business men of the two sections limn
from the wire-pulling and hair splitting of
politicians. The high sense of honor which
leads Southern merchants to first settle their
old accounts and then open new, speaks well
for tbe security of the future. The South
must be very hungry for Northern manu
factures ; its appetite is enormous. The
markets are swept of many articles ; and
nearly all sorts of fabrics are sold ahead of
production. Our manufactories are working
to their full capacity, and the only trouble is
to get help enough, though all the soldiers
who have come home have found employ
ment, and all the “anxious and aimless fe

Washington, September 11.—The leading
politicians of the Republican party have
gathered in this city to consider their policy
in the fall elections and in the new Oongres.
The difference of opinion is wide, and ex

Thuriow Weed is playing a prominent

It is doubtful whether the conflicting

“The Southern bishops say that they are

bishops are so ignorant of the tacts. I am
happy to imform them, and all concerned,
that the authority by which the property al
luded to was taken possession of, was the
only authority which at the time, and still,
so far as I know, could enforce obedience to
law, and maintain order in the rebellious
States. And I now propose to the bishops
nnd to all other parties interested, that Chief
Justice Chase shall decide the question ot
title to the property referred to, and that all
shall abide by his decision in the premises;
and I hereby pledge myself (and I doubt not
my colleagues in the episcopacy will do the
same) that should the decision be in favor of
the Church South. I will at once withdraw
all the ministers whom I have appointed to
conduct divine services in those churches re
ferred to.ffprovided the authority by which
I now occupy them allows me to do so, of
which I have no doubt. I think if the

they will not hesitate thus to submit the

Tiro Pittsburg Borgia.
The Pittsburg poisoning case is still en
larging. The bodies of Miss Buchanan and
Mrs. Caruthers, who were supposed to have
been poisoned by Mrs. Grinder, have been
exhumed, and the contents of their stomachs
analyzed. Poison was found in both, and
the coroner's jury rendered a verdict that
deceased came to their death by poison, ad
ministered by Mrs. Grinder, who has been
committed to answer the charge of murder.
The Pittsburg Gazette says that the wo
man is now suspected of having murdered
several other persons. Among these is her
owu brother-in-law,a returned soldier,named
Grinder, who died suddenly in her house,
and whose body was interred near Leech
burg, where his parents reside. A Mrs.
Hancock, wife of a hack driver, is also sup
posed to have died from the effects of poi
son administered by this woman, while act
ing the part of nurse iu the family. The
mother of ills. Hancock, an old lady named
Carr, died alter one day’s illness, and as Mrs.
Grinder had access to her at the time, there
is no doubt that she caused her death. It is
also reported to the coroner that she pois
oned two children in the Fifth Ward, both
of whom died. These were children of a
German woman whom Mrs. Grinder visited,
and it is said that after the children were

An Insalter of UVomcn Properly Punish
ed—A Xev, York Lieutenant CoArhided
fey an Actress in Detroit.
[From the Detroit Tribune, Sept. 11. j
A scene transpired on Saturday on the
stage at the Varielies Theatre, which was not
on the bills, but which to the spectators—
except one— was laughable in the extreme.
The particulars are these : A Lieutenant
Frank Graves, of the Sixty-first New Yurk
Infantry, came to this city several weeks ago
and haviug a good supply of “rhino," aud
hut little common sense, put on what is
commonly known as a “great many airs.”
He visited the Varieties Theatre, and there
became enamored with a tady performer
named Miss Lehman. He was Highly in at
tendance at the above place, and invariably
occupied a seat as near the stage as possible,
the more easily probably to observe and be
observed. Recently he secured an introduc
tion to Miss Lehman, and subsequently,
upon hia invitation, she accompanied him to
an ice-cream saloon which the gay lieuten
ant evidently considered as an initiatory
step to the. accomplishment of his future de
signs. Tne following day Graves openly
boasted that ho had accomplished what he
set out to do, and of course traduced the
character of tbe actress. This story on Sa
turday came to the ears of Miss Lehman,
and sue resolved to bring the culprit to the
test. She sent a friend after him, and in the
atternoon, he made his appearance at the
Varieties, littte suspecting what was in store
for him. He was questioned as to his con
duct, and did not deny having used the
language attributed to him, although he ex
cused nimself on the ground of drunkenness.
Miss Lehman immediately sent out for a
horsewhip, nnd although the lieutenant got
down upon uis bended knees aud begged
hard to be let off, and like a school boy,
promised to do so no more, the lady plied
the whip vigorously over his head and
shoulders, until her strength gave out, and
she was consequently compelled to desist.
It is estimated that she gave him at least
fifty or seven -five lashes, alter which the dis
comfited and disgraced wearer of shoulder
straps made his exit from the stage and
theatre by the front middle entrance. The
last beard of him he was traveling towards
the nearest railroad depot, having made up
his mind to go home.

Last evening at Colonel Wood's museum,
during the performance of “Speed the
Plough,” a gentleman in the audience an
nounced to the attendant that he had been
robbed ot five hundred dollars. The detec
tives were put on the scent, nnd began eye
ing inquisitively every countenance in the
theater. At length, Mr. C. M. Edwards,
superintendent of the museum, discovered a
couple of “gay and testive pals,”Jwith eye
glasses and enues, twirling limit' moustaches
iu the most fashionable abandon ; and ap
parently with much experience in the busi
ness. His quick eye discovered that tbe
hair was unnaturally long, and that it sat
rather too jauntily on the face to be the re
sult of nature or ouguents. He therefore in
formed the detectives, and the two iellows
were “pulled” and taken into a private room.
On searching them, what was the horror of
of the officers to find beneath the gay whisk
ers and flashing breast pins, two clergymen,
who had disguised themselves for the pur
pose of indulging in a little “unlawful and
unholy amusement." One of thqm had on
an enormous false mustrehe, and was fixed
up in the most recherche style, regardless of
expeuse. The other wore a thin mask over
the lower part of his face, which completely
disguised his features. Papers of a theologi
cal character were found on their persons,
but this was unnecessary, as they made a
full confession, and begged to be discharged,
saying that they only desired to see wha'
was like the theatre, in order that they
might teach their respective flocks to shun
such evil places.
One of these theatrical clergymen spends
his Sabbaths in preaching to a'sleepy Chica
go audience ; the other (and, thank Heaven,
Chicago has not to father them both,) is a
minister from the country, who has left his
flock for a few days to visit the State fair—
