Tho Silver Hill, whatever mny bo snM nf the principle upon which it may bo bused, is at least one step toward a correct financial policy. It gives tho Secretary of tho Trea sury great powers It will enable him to bring about a resumption of specie pay ments at the time set by Congress. That it is necessary ami proper for us to resume (iecie payments is fully proven by tho financial policies of England, France, Ger many, and other great governments. One of tho aims of the Silver Dill was to talte the premium olT gold. That end has been nearly, if not quite, accomplished. The silver dollar and tho gold dollar travel sido by side. They are of almost tho same value. This is what was wanted. But porno persons are already growling about tho Silver Bill, and want it rejiealed. It is not likely, however, that they will have their puerile wishes gratified. Another point in the financial policy that i...
