Jan. :'.().—The senate was plunged into the midst of a financial debate immediately after the reading of the journal by the presentation of telegrams from Chicago bankers and from the Merchants' exchange of St. Louis, asking the senators from Illinois und Missouri to aid the passage of the house bill to cany out the views contained in the president's message. VOKI LJilYerN with MITI IULUCM' .Kxrlmnu**. The one from St. Louis was presented by Senator Vest (item., Mo.), who spoke as follows: "Mr. President: I have very great respect for the St. Louis Merchants' exchange and forthe opinions and wishes •of the gentlemen who constitute that body, but I am unable to meet their views in regard to the recommendations in tho president's message, I do not think that the Merchants' exchange of St. Louis repri.'seiits the intelligent opinion of the majority of the people of Missouri. 1 do not think that its members have given proper consideration to the legitimate effect of the recommendations which his excellency has made to congress. ] do not believe that a majority of the people of Missouri or of the United States favor the retirement of S'lOlUKHMXK) of non-hitcrest bearing treasury notes, and the substitution, in phiee of them, of no currency at all. J do not believe thai, they propose to retire those notes»by substituting :v fj-old obligation, running for (iffy years, with interest in goid payable every year ID the amount of Sfl.">,()l)U,t)iiO and with an aggregate amount of interest at, the end of fifty years <,f -fT.'iO.ooO.OO!) in gold. *>hli;r:iticni-j u> Posterity. ".It. is a sel.'isli suggestion that the principal, or a large part of it. is to be paid by posterity. The obligations of this senate in regard to posterity are as binding us they arc in reference to the present generation. We legislate not for ourselves alone, but for those to come lifter us. And it might jnst as well bo said that we can ignore the autonomy o[ the government as to future ages nnd leave to onr descendants problems to be settled which might involve the country in all sorts of difficulties as to say (as the president suggests) that we niust look alone to the present and let tin; future' take care of itself." "Mr. President, with great respect to the St. Louis Merchants' exchange, I deny their faculty as soothsayers in regard to linance. This same Merchants' exchange telegraphed me to vote for the unconditional repeal of the purchasing clause of the S-herman act and | said that its repeal would bring prosperity 'to the country, and that sunshine would, again illumine the land.

The president of the United States has issued a proclamation of war against the silver isstic of the country; and he seeks now (I do Iiot t-penk of his motives, but of the results) to make those of us who do not believe in a single gold standard accessory of the destruction of silver and to the perpetuation of the 63'stem to which he is devoted, fs it possible that intelligent men believe that the president has not now the power to secure all the gold that is necessary for. the treasury of the United States, even on his own theory in regard to finance? The secretary of the treasury openly avows (and the president repeats) that they need no more money to meet the current expenditures of the government.
