From the Hillsdale Democrat. Tho Adrián Times contains the folowing with reference generally to 3ongressional norainations : " We have no disposition to interfere with the action of other Congressional district, and yet we cannot but feel ;hat the party is judged by its nominees. Our own opinión is that no man who voted for or took the back pay, no man who is in favor of it, no man in üongress who did not vote for its re[eal, and no man who is in favor of currency inflation, should be nominated by Republicana anywhere for the next Congress. Our duty particularly lies in the Second Congressional District, and we shall support no man for Congress this fall who is not squaroly opposed to inflation of the cunency. The Second District is clear of all back pay taint, but other districts are not so fortúnate. Let the Eepublicans in these districts do their whole duty." How about the " forward pay." The Second District is not so clear on that. The Representativo from this district also stands on record as one who voted in favor of $6,000 per year to Congressmen, instead of $5,000, as the pay was fixed before the salary grab law was enacted. How about that, and the forward pay businoes ? Is tho Second District nomihee all right on these, Mr. Times. The Secretary of the Treasury has instructed the Assistant Treasurer of New York to sell gold during the month of September as follows : $1,000,000 on the first and second Thursdays and $500,000 on the third and fourth Thursdays, respectively, making in all $3,000,000. The cost of the government of New York city for the year ending August lst, was, in round numbers, $50,000,000, and the debt was considerably iucreased during the same time.
