Ox the 9th inst, Congressman Conger - who learned all the crooked ways of finance in practicing law up at Port Huton - took a tilt at the currency, avowed himself the defender of labor against capital, and went in for infiation. - ■' Jones" - he who wrote two speeches for Moses - had nothing to do with this speech of Conger's. It was his, every word of it, and we can see him knit his ye-brows as he jerked out the sentences and sent the barbed arrow home. We will only quote a single paragraph the closing one, aimed of course at Gov. Dix. It is : Sir, let the governors of States díctate to subservient Legislatures their high-sounding manifestoes, in not overelegant language, ot inatructions to this Congress in furtherance of the memorials of merchant prinoes and milliouaires. I cannot teil how submissive others may become, but for me, I will await with confidence the verdict of that loyal, enterprisiug, intelligent host of toilera and laborera of the earth whose confiding trust may indeed be outraged, but whose avenging wrath will be terrible it once aroused. We pause in breathless anxiety. We almost see that " host of toilers" grabbing for green backs, and the more they get the more they will grab for, for give CoNGER and his co-inflationists full rope and greenbacks will come to be worth about the same as the Continental currency or the wild-cat bank currency of 1837 : it will take a nat full to buy a dinner.
