LANCASTER DAILY INTELLIGENCER TUESDAY, MARCH 1, 1881. Hancastcc I ntelltgencee. TUESDAY EVENING. MAECH 1, 1881. Power Poorly Placed. The power held by the national hanks te suddenly and disastrously contract the circulating medium of the country, as lately exhibited, seems te demonstrate that the expedient of resorting te a na tional bank note circulation, instead of a government note, is of much less value thau it was supposed te be. Evidently ,tbe cheapest and most reliable paper money a country can use is the premise te pay en demand, made by the govern ment itself, supported by the needful coin in the treasury te redeem that de mand. Substantially the national bank note is a government note, since it is based upon a government bend that pre tects it. If the government bend is geed the national bank note is geed ; otherwise it is nut. Why then does the nation resort te a second hand issue of a note, through a bank, and pay that bank for issuing the note, when it might Itself issu...

There are few things mere shocking te a reverent mind than the practice, se com mon among religious people, of jesting abent certain awful possibilities which their faith implies. As commonly applied the term "reverent mind" is supposed te belong only te these persons holding what is called "evangelical belief," but I am inclined te believe that the non-orthodox are often mere reverent than theso whose faith is of the straitest sort. Most of us can recall the names of clergymen whose doctrinal soundness was unques tioned, but whose occasional handling of sacred things was light and trifling te say the least. But te descend from the clergy te the evangelical laity, here we tee fre quently are met by a levity of expression that seems greatly at variance with their professed belief. Te many peopl...
