BUSINESS IN TRADE DOLLARS. Who Looked to ConcrNi to Redeem them Throwing them on the market. The business in trade dollars on WaJH ■trad has again blossomed forth and is now as active as ever. The failure of Congress to redeem them at their par ▼alue has compelled the capitalists and speculators ana the many private individuals who had bought them up in large quanties to get them off their hands. There are in circulation at present about 85,000,000 of these dollars. Fifteen millions were coined from 1873 to 1876. when they were legal tenders. The rest have been coined since that time. It is comSuted that China has in circulation about i,000,000 of these trade dollars and that the American bankers and capitalists hold the remaining 13,000,000, Europe having but a small amount. Most of the dollars are now being sent to China. The brokers buy them here at about eighty-five and then ship them by way of Liverpool. The profit, made is very small, being about a quarter of a cent on each do...

The strength grace and aids for such a divine work are far from bftiug inherent principles in the sinful nature of mankind, and are only acquired by much self-denial prayer and a close abode near the cross of Calvary. Each day develops some new difficulties to be overcome in successfully reaching the affections of men and drawing them to their loving Savior. In the present age when there is much spurious stuff in circulation denominated Christianity, men are quite apt to accept the conteri'eit for the genuine and grasp at the shadow rather than the substance. After all, vain will be our most strumous efforts and exertions to win souls for ...
