parties to (he f peculation, ad tha,ie
great show of opposition wliich ha made
was ;tll a sham to throw dust into the
eyes of j the public. Supposiig him to
iiavej been a secret accomplice from the
beginning, every part of this- extraordina
ry plot is consistent and intelligible. In
this view, the apparent despair of ic peal
ing the Classification actx wbich prcrailed
at the time of the Opera House coup, was
well calculated i depress the price of
Erie stock, aud enable the pari lea to this
mai ceuvre to purchase or contract for all
the shuns they could carry, at very low
rates. The Eiio stock could not vtry
well pe depressed to lower figures than it
was iuuder the apparently discouraging
prospects at Albany. And then, at the
very: lowest point of that depression, the
Opera House coup was flashed upou the
public all of a sudden. Gould, for one
day,;uiade a resolute show of resistance ;
but.ito the snrptise of everybody, he
timely iollapsed, and made an uncondi
tional capitulation. Why did he not fight
the thing out? Or, to ask a question
which goes more directly to the pith of
the matter, how was it possible that h
could have beeu so taken by surpiise, as
he was represented to h ive beeu at the
litnej? Was he all the w hile iu collusion
with1 his pretended enemies, but real al
lies, in a plot whose actual result, thus
far, ,has been to give biin $3,240,000,
wiihcorref ponding gains to Grant, Sickles
and (he oilier conspirators I The mere
repeal of the Classification act would not
have supplied gas enough to inflate this
enormous balloon. This gigantic stock
speculation is like fruit of the 0era Hons
comedy, which advertised to all the world
that there hu been a tremondom, aston
ishing, aud most advantageous revolution
in Erie. Everytliing which has been done,
Doth at Albany rtfid here, has contributed
to the success of iheGiant-Sicklcs Gould
' pool." The ati'ecled despair of repealing
the Classification act, by which the price
of the Erie stock was depressed and kept
down till the " i.k1 " had made their
purchases and contracts ; then the dra
malic and sensational scenes at the Opera
House tor advei l:sing to the world a great
and sudden revolution in the management
of the road ; and aflerwuras the repeal ol
I be Classification act as a result ot the
Opera House coup, were adroitly contriv
ed for " bulling " the stock and enriching
all the parties to the plot, including Jay
Gould and Gen. Grant.
We have slated our suspicions and the
grounds of them. Our columns are open

fact that all capital is the urJucl of

toil and skill, or the representative of his
father's Tail and skill.

But capital is not only indispensable to
young men of the right stuff for all tins
There are other kinds of capital besides
accumulated money: brains, muscle, in
dustry, honesty, diligence truth, fidelity.
till, I act, education all these are capi-
tal, and all ot them have a commercial
value, which the owner will be able soon
er or later, to command in the market.
Provided with these, any young man iif

have something at the end of each year
to invest as mwney capital. If he needs
money let him go to work and make it,
and thus give proof of his ability to use
it profitably aud judiciously. It w go
itfto any great city, or into any prosper
