ptain of -the ship would have about as much al
>od feeling for the passengers,and crew;of the b(
Inning vessel, as those men have who hold the st
money to 'extort the last farthing from the pro- bi
Icers. ni
Suppose a surveyor owns his chain to measure pI
nds, anc(, when appointed by government a pub- m
c measure of lan4, should say to one needing his m
rvices,-' The chain is mine, and I will stretch th
out to double its legal length if you will give ime ai
much'for measuring;' to another, I will con- q\
act so much if you will pay me for it: the chain is
mine, and have ILnot a right to use my chain as of
please? .Who has any right to dictate to me w
hat I shall do with My property?' Now, the, p
ngth of the chain being altered one-third, does' e
ot more; effectually alter the quantity of land h
measured, than adding one-third to the interest on li
money alters every contract based on money, and: tl
he public measurers would have as good right to: tl
ie their chains in this way as a man loaning mo-i y,
ey has to alter the interest on money. No mat- tl
er in whose hands money ,may' be, it is a definiteY
ling, and the only public measure and base of tf
value of every thing :in all nations. :, tl
Free trade in the, use in loaning money is as s(
certain to prove destructive to the debtor's prop- tt
rty as a free right, because you own, your knife, l
o plunge it into your neighbor's breast, would be fI
certain to endanger, if not to deprive'him of life. u
re are as much in d&ty.bound to protect our citi- ;
ens by law, from these depredations! upon their r;
roper.ty, as we are to'protect them by law against o
he assassin's knife.,.;, For many a man who r,
through lopg life has been able to support his
umily comfortably, has not been able to bear up
ider, thqse, sudden and unexpected robberies,
enerally called misfortunes, and aberration of
hind or death has been the consequence, and he C
as left his family to .the cold charities of the o
rorld. All these evils have arisen from this free, o
se or trade in the interest on money. i s

CHAPTER XVIII.
The evils woe experience are deep-rooted, and
will not cure themselves.
As I have before remarked all nations are gov- d
rned by laws. National sins are caused bry unt-
ust laws, and these sins arise because the transac- r
ions between individuals under these laws operate 1
:reatly to the advantages of one party contracting 0
nd to the disadvantages of the other, yet the laws a
vould justify the contract and compel the parties a
o abide the consequence. Under these laws,; i
wo persons, in good faith, may make a contract 1
Yhich will ruin one kand be of no benefit to the
other, but which will, be of great advantage to 4
third person, who has fad nothing to do with the t
contract between the two first. ,
,To illustrate, I will suppose a case. A. is a
manufacturer of cotton goods, and sells to B. ten
thousand dollars' worth of goods on six, ,months'
credit. B. sells them for a profit to his customers;
)ut in consequence of the hard times is unable to
make his collections in time to meet A.'s note for
ten thousand dollars. A. needs the money, and
calls upon B., who, to secure the ten thousand,
gives him a mortgage on his store and premises,
worth thirty thousand dollars, payable two years
after date with seven per cent. interest per an-
num, payable half yearly. A. must have the mo-
ney for this mortgage to buy cotton to go on with
his manufacturing buisness; C. has money on
hand, but will not buy a mortgage on two years
without a deduction of twenty-five per cent. from
the face of the mortgage. C. buys the mortgage
of ten thousand dollars for seven thousand five
hundred, and can coerce the payment against B.
for the ten thousand and seven per cent. interest:'
if times are very hard and money scarce, he can
perhaps buy the property, worth under other cir-
cumstances, thirty thousand dollars, at a cost to
him of only seven thousand five hundred, and in
a fewyears when business is is prosperous, sell the
same property for thirty thousand, and millions of
good business paper has been sold at from one to
five per cent. discount per month, within :a few,
years past. ..
All these transactions are legal, and it is impos-
sible for the business of the people to go on with-
out our citizens being exposed to these evils, and
oa individual or even no State, has the power to
avert them. To illustrate farther: suppose ,a
company to embark in a manufacturing business,
with a capital of ten millions of, dollars. Thee .
company consists of good men, who wish to pay
'the planter a fair price for his cotton and the
"workmen good wages for their labor, so that,
whatever others may do, they are determined, that
those who work for them in any way shall receive
a just compensation for their labor. Such a con-
cern as this, under our laws, could not possibly
prosper in business; even if it had a capital of a
hundred millions, it would probably not last half
a century,-the whole industry. of the.,nation
would be working against it; it could employ only
a certain number of people, and they could al-
ways ,.have enough work at fair wages. Those
not working for this concern, whenever hard times
appeared, would be compelled,to work fior half
rice, and planters who raised the cotton would
e obliged to sell it for .a proportionate, price ;
thdse who raised,grain would sell at half what
they could afford to raise it for, and this/company
could not get a higher price for its goods in mar-
ket than their competitors ,who had paid but half


price for materials and labor, and the concern
would of course be broken up, This evil is na-
tional, and must have a national cur4. Contracts
are made payable in the standard of value, which
the nation has pretended to fix, and by it property,
is also valued. If the value of this standard be
allowed to vary after a contract is made, the con-
tract will be varied in the same proportion. If
a person contracts a debt when interest is at six
per cent. andis compelled to pay it when interest
is at twelve, per cent., the debtor is as, much in-
jured as if the party holding the debt (interest
remaining at six per cent.) should erase the a-
mount in the note, bond or book account, and
write in lieu thereof double the sum, and compel,
by law, the debtor to pay double the amount. In
hundreds and thousands of cases, I doubt not, it
would have been less oppressive to the persons in
debt to have the latter put i6 practice than the
former, as has been the case throughout 4the
country for a few years.. Unproductive property
will not bring half what it formerly would, and
productive probably not more than half; labor has
fallen half, hence money has more than double in
value. Thisimmense sum has been concentrated
in the hands of. the capitalist, without rendering
to the productive industry of the nation any equiv-


ent whatever, any morenhean if the amount ha0'
een,.taken from them Iby-fieft or forgery; yet
uch is the effect of our laws,'qd not of-6uts only
ut of the laws of altl other: natinos. -The govei '
ing power of the country alonecan reach *~r
protect us from this evil, and if ibdoes this it
rust continue to hold the power -by )oaning the
loney itself: in this way it cannot fail to protect
he nation from the evil. Governinent has baidd
nd intended to fix the value by'determining the
quantity of metal in a dollar, when settling the use
the only.thing which can possibly fix the value
f the dollar. As the base is entirely wrong, so
vill all contracts made;upon it be .unjust to,the
parties, and all arguments on this subject, ho*,-
ver plausible, which go to support this base,
ave no force in truth, because they, go to estab-
sh a false foundation, and an argument built on
his is no, better than a ,i'house built ,on the sand,
he whole fabric will bo overthrown: every fei
ears, and great and terrible will be the .fall
hereof. : : .,,.
Nations, for several generations, will endure
these revulsions ; bUt the ,time will arrive when
he oppression will be' o great,.and the suffering
o intense;thatfthe ,,poplAace, will rise, and in-
heir indignation destroy and rasee cities and vil.
ages to their .foundations. -Such has been Ithe
ate of nations,. and such it. will'continue to b6;
ntil this evil is rooted out of the lahd, and the
aws made to protect the people in their juAt
rights. The power in this nation is in the hasids
f; the people:, let them use it lawfully, and the
esult will be certain.

GULF OF MEXIO,,
The following is from- the Army and Navy
Chronicle giving the report made to the BereaU t
f Ordnance, and Hydrography, of determinations
f latitude, longitude and magnetic deviation, at
several places in the Gulf of Mexico, made under
he direction. of Commander L. M.,Powell, of the
Navy., The latitudes were :determined fromn 6bb-
ervations0 of the' sunand stars, made with a sektf
.nt and artificial, horizon, and may be relied .:
within 30 seconds. Two well. determined merino,
lians in the Gulf, were adopted as secondatrie, '
yjz, the Moro Tower at Havaina, long. 82 deg. 21

and errors of the chrontmoeters were determined
it each of the above places, fron equal altitudes
of the sun, observed with a sexta.fitrad-artificial
horizon, Indeed; it appears by the report that al4
possiblee, care was:taken: by Commander- Powell
and the;officers under his command, to define

IRON SHIPs OF WAR.-Lieut.; Hunter, corn
wander of the United States ^steamship. Union,
gives the following as the advantage of an iron
vessels over a wooden one of the same dimen-
siops :-
1st. Greater strength.
2d. Less weight and consequently she may be
propelled faster by the same power, whether
wind or steam. i
;; 3d. She has more room inside for her crewand
provisions..* ,
4th. She cannot be burned. i '
5th. She will last for :eyer, and ;, anything for .repairs. This comparitive indes-
tructibility keeps her ever ready for sea, and ex-
empts her from the great expense attendant upon
the preservation of wooden vessels in ordinary,
and the loss of time consumed in fitting the latter
for sea. : :
6th. Her bulk-heads being water-tight, she
may not be sunk, though one part of the vessel be


pierced by shot.
7th. A Paixan shell cannot lodge in her side. ,
8th. She has none of the vegetable matter 6,f
wooden vessel about her, which produces disease
by decomposition.
9th. The utmost cleanliness of the berth-deck
is indispensable necessary to the health of the
crew. Hers being iron, may be washed. at :A-,
times. Not so the wooden decked vessel, wheir
the dampness arising from the absorption in wash-
ing them is so great, that the medical officers at-
tribute to it chiefly the size of their sick lists.
10th. The vessel being of iron, is ever, tight,
and costs nothing for caulking, except on the spar-
deck, which should be of wood. .
llth. She is free from vermin, so destructive to:
provision and stores, in the wooden vessels.
12th. She will make a great saving in the article
of paint; the iron surface being simply ceverd
with it, whilst the wooden one is saturated.;

They soon agreed, in terms polite,
(Each mounted on his steeple,)
To have a tough and godly fight,
And that before the people.
So shook they hands like generous foes,
,,,,Before commencing battle,
Then poked each other in the nose,
Made both the churches rattle.
The powers that be, were in the lurch,
For none o' them could quell it,
And all the row was, if a church
Could be without a Prelate."
Two holy men, well matched indeed-
Alas, for such perversion--
But then again, the people need
Some clerical diversion.
Some craftier folks can hide their wrath,
In gowns both full and ample,
And walk still in a peaceful path,,
A glorious meek example.
But like two well-bred fighting cocks,
They spurred each other sadly,
And tore each other's godly locks,
And scratched' their faces badly.
And well they tried witl pompous looks,
To end this holy rupture,
And then they took to quoting books,
And many texts of scripture.
They knocked each other sore about,
With many a hearty jostle,
Yet neither clear, could make it out',
That "Prelate" was Apostle."
On other shores, but not so free,
Some folks still choose to dish-up,
That wonderful anoinaly,
Hereditary Bishop.
Had my "papa" but been a Priest,
One of the compact few,
The self-elected would at least,
Have dubbed me "Bishop" too.
Then I'd have walked in pure white lawn,
Pedantical knight-errant,
Stuck in my hat each morning's dawn,
Wainwright's official warrant."
The genius of the people here,
"Want genius in the man,"
'Our choice elects '-and that is clear,
The constitution's plan.
The ladies took the Bishop's lock,

USURY; THE EVIL AND THE REMEDY.

CHAPTER XVII.
On "Free Trade" in .Money and its Tenden-
cies.
Let me illustrate the effects of free,trade' in
the use or interest on money loaned-a plan which
is advocated by many people in our cities, and.
doubtless by many in the 'country. They say*,
Make merchandise of money, let the man who will
give the most for its use -borrow the money, and
allow no laws to interfere between the parties con-
tracting-if A. has money and B. wants it, let B.
buy its use as cheap as he can from A., and, if he
is not suited with the price A. demands for it, let
him borrow of some other person: he is not ob-
liged to take A.'s money any more than he is
compelled to buy A.'s potatoes; has not a man a
right to do what he will with his own? A cap-
tain of a ship at sea, might see on fire near him
another ship, full of people, and say to the passen-
gers and crew of the burning vessel, If you will
give me all your possessions in money, goods and
chattels, I will take you on my ship; but, if you
do not wish to comply with my terms, I shall
not take you on board; this ship is mine, and I
have a right to do what I will with my own. I
shall not urge you to come on my vessel on the
terms I proposed; you had no business to place
yourselves in such a situation; it is your own fault,
not mine; therefore if you do come it is because I
like to help people out of difficulties. My hu-
manity prompts me to make this offer.' Doiyou
not think the passengers and all would accede to
the terms, and be glad to get on board of the ship
of this humane man? If this benevolent captain
had seceretly, by the aid of ship-brokers, set the
vessel on fire with a slow match, and then hap-
pened to be near and proposed these terms to
those in distress, he would be in principle much
like -our modern usurers, who hoard the public
measure of value when they very well know that
it is impossible for the public -either individuals,
States, or the United States-to fulfil their con-
tracts without the money, and they can make any
terms they please with those in distress. The

and then to violate it. Lord Ashburton found that
it wasjmpossible for him to make a treaty with-
out priMises and engagement on the part of Great
Britain to withhold her protection from slave mur-
derers; but the treaty being obtained, her engage-
ments, which, with all nations of any honor, are
as obligatory as treaties, especially, when, in fact,
passing the treaty, are thrown aside; and now,
even the express stipulations of the treaty itself are
meanly evaded.
"We have every confidence in the Administra-
tion. We are satisfied, that it will tolerate neith-
er the practice nor the construction of the British
Government, as to this clause of the treaty; and,
if the position assumed is not abandoned, that it
will give notice of the total abrogation of the ar-
ticle in the treaty.
We trust that the movements in Congress on
this subject will be vigorously pushed, and the
whole matter be brought up for discussion and
decision. We fear it is impossible to keep peace
with such a nation, if we would maintain either
our own self-respect, or the respect of 'other
powers."

NON-RESIDENT SLAVES.
.Messrs. Editors:
Our community have had their attention called
to the abuse of the privilege accorded to non-
residents, by the sufferance of the community, in
sending their slaves here for hire.
A quantity of cotton was found in a room rent-
ed of a white man by a slave, named Anthony
Philip, belonging to John G. Winter, Esq., of Co-
lumbus, Ga. On inquiry, it was found that some
of the cotton had been stolen from the Steam
Cotton Press Company's warehouse. A square
bag had been stolen out of the warehouse and
cut in pieces; part of the bagging having the
marks on it, and the ropes were found hidden
under the cotton. The negro was convicted of
larceny and sentenced to be whipped.-Another
negro, named Bob, was found in the possession of
a quantity of cotton supposed to be stolen, and
he was also accused of buying cotton from other
negroes. All these evils may be traced to the
license that has hitherto been given to negroes to
collect and sell cotton samples. Not satisfied
with the money they could honestly derive from
that source, they have taken to stealing whole
bales.
For the information of those who send negroes
here from another State, and allow them to act
as free, let me, through your columns, inform
them that there is a law making such license a
penal offence. It is a penal offence to give ne-
groes a permit to trade, in cotton; and it is also
a penal offence to buy cotton from a negro slave,
although said slave has a permit to sell.
Negro slaves are forbidden, by the ordinances
of this city, from living separate and apart from
their owners, employers or overseers.
One section of an act of the Legislative Coun-
cil declares that no persons brought into the Ter-
ritory shall be deemed and held as slaves, except-
ing those who were held to slavery in some state
or territory of the United States, and who are
brought into this Territory pursuant to law. An-
other section makes it unlawful for any persons
(excepting those coming to the territory to reside
therein) to bring into the territory any negro
slave over twelve years of age, without first ob-
taining a certificate from certain persons in the
act named, that the negro has not been convicted
of any criminal offence in the state from whence
he is brought; and another section requires that,
on the sale of any slave so brought into the ter-
ritory, the certificate shall be recorded in the
county clerk's office, and that the seller shall
make oath that the contents of the certificate are
true, to the best of his knowledge and belief.--
The penalty of fifty dollars, for each negro sold
in violation of this law, is incurred thereby.
Inasmuch as the law specifies that all persons
held to slavery by the laws of the state or terri-
tory from whence they are brought, and who are
brought into the territory pursuant to law, and
no others, shall be deeed and held as slaves in
the territory-it may be a question, whether per-
sons who are brought to the territory, in violation
of the laws thereof, are not entitled to be con-
sidered as free persons, and whether they can be
deemed and held as slaves ?
This hint is thrown out for the benefit of those
concerned, and as a,warning also to the non-resi-
dent owners of negroes sent here for hire, that if


any such negroes as are sent here in violation of
the law alluded to, shall be detected in the com-
mission of any offence against the laws of the
city or territory, there are persons who are deter-
mined to raise the question above stated. The
object of the law was a good one; it was intended
for the protection of the citizens of the territory,
and it should be enforced.
It is an evil not to be borne, that negroes of
bad character, whose masters live in other states,
and who are unable to control them, should get
rid of the nuisance to themselves and the com-
munity they live in, occasioned by the crimes of
their servants, by saddling upon the inhabitants
of this city such gallows-birds as flock here every
winter from abroad, to be hired out.

From the National Intelhgencer.
MOST AWFUL AND MOST LAMENTABLE
CATASTROPHE! -
Instntaneous death, by the bursting' of one of
the large guns on board the US ship Prince-
ton, of Secretary Upshurs Secretary Gilmer,
Commodore Kennon, Virgil Maxcy, Esq.,
and Hon. David Gardiner.
In the whole course of our lives it has never
fallen to our lot to announce to our readers a more
shocking calamity-shocking in all its circum-
stances and concomitants-than that which occur-
red on board the U S ship "Princeton," yesterday
afternoon, whilst under way, in the river Potomac
fourteen or fifteen miles below this city.
Yesterday was a day appointed, by the courtesy
and hospitality of Capt. Stockton, commander of
the Princeton, for receiving as visitors to his fine
ship (lying off' Alexandria,) a great number of
guests, with their families, liberally and numer-
ously invited to spend the day on board. The day
was most favorable, and the company was large
and brilliant, of both sexes; not less probably in
number than four hundred, among whom were
the President of the United States, the Heads of
the several Departments and their families. At a
proper hour, after the arrival of the expected guests
the.vessel got under way and proceeded down the
river to some distance below Fort Washington.
During the passage down, one of the large guns on
board (carrying a ball of 225 pounds) was fired
more than once, exhibiting the great power and'
capacity of that formidable weapon of war. The
ladies had partaken of a sumptuous repast; the
gentlemen had succeeded them at the table, and
some of them had left it; the vessel was on her
return up the river, opposite to the fort, where
Capt. Stockton consented to fire another shot from
the same gun, around and near which, to observe
its effects, many persons had gathered, though by
no means so many as on similar discharges in the
morning, the ladies who then thronged the deck
being on this fatal occasion almost all between
decks, and out of reach of harm.
The gun was fired. The explosion was follow-
ed, before the smoke cleared away so as to observe
its effect, by shrieks of wo Which announced a
dire calamity. The gun had burst, at a point three
or four feet from the breech, and scattered death
and desolation around. Mr. UPSHUR, Secretary
of State, Mr. GILMER, so recently placed at the
head of the'Navy, Commodore KENNON, one of its
gallant officers, VIRGIL MA'CY, lately returned
from a diplomatic residence at the Hague, Mr.
GARDNER, of New York, (formerly a Member of
the Senate of that State,) were among the slain.
Besides these, seventeen seamen were wounded,
several of them badly and probably mortally.-
Among those stunned by the concussion, we learn
not all seriously injured, were Captain STOCKTON
himself; Col. BENTON, of the Senate; Lieut.
HUNT, of the Princeton; W. D. ROBINSON, of
Georgetown. Other persons also were perhaps
more or less injured, of whom, in the horror and
confusion of the moment, cno certain account could
be obtained. The above are believed, however,
to comprise the whole of the persons known to
the pub lie who were killed or-dangerously or se-
riously hurt.
rhe scene upon the deck may more easily be
irrEgined than described. Nor can the imagina-
tion pictured to itself the half of its horrors.--
Wives, widowed in an instant by the murderous
blast Daughters smitten with the heart-rending
sight of their father's lifeless corpse The wail-
ings of agonized females The piteous grief of
the unhurt but heart-stricken spectators! The
wounded seamen borne down below! The silent
tears and quivering lips of their brave and honest
comrades, who tried in vain to subdue or to con-
ceal their feelings! What words can adequately
depict a scene like this!

FUGITIVE SLAVES.
We copy, below, some remarks from the Wash-
ington Spectator, on the subject of the refusal of
the British authorities, at Nassau, to give up the
runaway Negroes who lately committed murder
and robbery in East Florida, and made their es-
cape to the Bahama Islands. A demand was
lately made by our government, through Col. J.
B. Browne, U. S. Marshal, upon the authorities
at Nassau, which was refused on the ground that
not sufficient evidence was adduced. tr
The murderers, therefore, must go free, because
they are negroes and slaves; no evidence, however
strong, will be received by the British Govern-
ment, unless the crime is one which that govern-
ment recognizes. The Treaty is a mere nullity,
and all the fair promises, and engagenients of
Lord Ashburton, to keep good neighborhood,"
a mere pretence. If a whiie man commits a
crime, he is at once given up, upon a proper de-
mand; but our negro slaves are not only encour-
aged to commit murder and theft, but every fa-
cility is offered them for escape, and protection
extended to them whei they are successful.
We are pleased to see that our indefatigable
Delegate was among the first to call the attention
of the government to this important subject.
Our readers must have observed the move-
ments in the Senate and in the House of Represen-
tatives, with respect to the course of the British
authorities in Nassau, in refusing to deliver up the
fugitives slaves who committed robbery and mur-
der in Florida, and fled to that island for protec-
tion.


When the ASHBURTON treaty; as it is called,
was under consideration, Lord Ashburton pledged
the British Government to have such laws passed
in the British West India Islands, as should pre-
vent, in future, any such occurrence as the Creole
case. So far from such laws being passed, the
Attorney General of England, on the discussion of
the rendition bill, passed in Parliament, distinctly
declared, that if such a case should occur, even
under this treaty, the murderers would not be de-
livered up. And now, on the fist case which has
occurred, involving both murder and robbery, be-
cause the fugitives are slaves, the treaty is nulli-
fied.
The ground upon which the refusal is based,
although we have read no part of the correspon-
dence, we suppose to be this: that no surrender
will be made of a fugitive who does not com-
mit a crime according to the laws of Great Britain.
It is murder, for instance, in the United States,
for a slave to murder his master; as it is for a
master to murder his slave. They would surren-
der the master if he fled to the British possessions,
because they would consider that murder. But if
the slave murdered his master because he is his
master-slavery not being recognized in the Brit-
ish dominions-the master were a wrong-doer; and
it is justifiable homicide, and not murder, in the
slave to kill him. And they claim that they shall
have the power to revise our laws, look behind the
decisions of courts, the finding of grand juries,
take testimony themselves, and, on the whole, to
say whether an offence against the laws of Great
Britain has been committed in the United States.
These arrogant pretensions, inconsistent as they
are with the dealings of nations between each
other, or the obligations of good faith, totally nul-
lify the treaty, in the rendition of fugitive slave
criminals. The whole affair, so far as the south-
ern States are concerned, has the aspect of a mere
trick, to obtain their support to the late treaty,

From the above it will be seen that the re-
ceipts last year, up to the above dates, were
1,686,652. The total crop was 2,379,460 bales;
leaving 692,808 for the receipts the remainder of
the season. Causes, sufficiently evident, have
been in operation this year to induce planters to
hurry their crops forward; it is therefore unrea-
sonable to suppose that anything like the same
quantity of Cotton is still in the country that
there was last year at this time. Many estimate
it at only one-half the amount, which would
make our present crop only 1,667,248 bales; two-
thirds, however, is probably nearer the truth,
and, we believe, is as high as any one estimates
it. This would leave 461,876 bales still to be re-
ceived, and bring our crop up to 1,782,720 bales.
Up to this time last year, we had received at
this port only about two-thirds of odur crop-other
ports about the same proportion; this year, we
have received at least three-fourths. Allowing
the ratio at other ports to be the same, the crop
would amount to about 1,760,000 bales.

From the Charleston Patriot.
THE COTTON SPECULATIONS OF 1844
AND 1825.
There are two remarkable eras in the history
of the Cotton trade-that of 1825 and that of
1844. They are strikingly different in many of
their .characteristics. The speculation of 1825
had its origin in England-that of 1844 had its
source in the United States. That of 1825 was
fostered exclusively by British capital-that of-
1844 is sustained as well by American as by Brit-
ish capital. In 1825, it was the general abun-
dance of money that stimulated the speculation
in Great Britain. This was the moving princi-
ple. Cotton felt the influence in common with
all other commodities. In 1844, an expected de-
ficiency in the supply is the spur to excitement,
and the plethora of money is a collateral effect.--
Can there be any general deductions drawn from
this relative difference in the character and cir-
cumstances of these speculativeeras ? We think
the comparison affords some instruction.
1. The speculation of 1825 had its limitation
as to time in the reaction that overtook all other
commercial dealings. An artificial excess of pa-
per money in England forced up the prices of all
commodities. The boundary or limit to specula-
tion was of course the ability of England to keep
her currency so full as to be above the level of
the currencies of the continent. The termination
of the speculation and the reaction of prices was
found therefore in the fact that all factitious val-
ue, having its origin in excessive issues of paper
money, can be sustained no longer than the excess
is thrown back on the country that originates and
nurses speculation by such excess.
2. The speculation of 1844 having its origin
exclusively in an expected deficiency, the abun-
dance of money being only an incidental effect,
its duration or limit must be so-ght in some oth-
er circumstance than a contraction of the curren-
cy from artificial expansion. The condition of
the money market is still an important element
in this question. But it is not a forced and ficti-
tious, but a natural excess of money, that now
stimulates and sustains speculation on both'sides
of the Atlantic, It is a trial of real money-pow-
er between capitalists on both theatres of specu-
lation. A real deficiency in the supply being the
foundation of the excitement and not the artificial
abundance of money, tle struggle can only be de-
termined by the relative pecuniary ability of the
parties. A money-power that would enable the
speculators, on this side of the Atlantic, to keep
the cotton market only sparingly supplied on the
other side for two months, would triumph in this
struggle. But of this ability we have our appre-
hensions. Although the United States are more
independent of England, in a pecuniary sense--
although there is less mercantile indebtedness
than at almost any other period of their commer-
cial history-still the revival of business-the
large increase of British imports-the remittan-
ces for these imports, and for dividends on state


bonds, rust daily lessen the ability on this side
to command funds, locked up in cotton retained
at the ports of exportation, as it increases the
ability on the other'side to force its sale and ship-
ment. The inferences from these views aflbrd
lessons of warning to those who have entered the
dangerous field of speculation, as to the limit of
time which they may have prescribed to them-
selves for continuing or terminating their opera-
tions,
We are sorry to see a leading commercial pa-
per in New York, the Courier and Enquirer,
holding out hopes that may prove delusive, and
encouraging speculative movements that must be
extremely hazardous in this stage of the struggle.
We contend that the advance which will, in all
probability, be realized in our markets, immedi-'
ately after the advices of the 4th February, will
be sufficiently large to satisfy any rational desire
for profit, and having a reasonable proportion to
any expected deficiency. Any'speculation taking
in a larger range of time and deeper calculation
of probabilities, must involve risks too hazardous
for the chances of gain.

U- In the Senate of the United States, the
Oregon question is still a subject of discussion,
and is ably advocated by the Western members.
Several speeches have boen made adverse to Mr.
Semple's resolution, by Messrs. Choate, Phelps,
Dayton and others. Several members are to fol-
low, who will doubtless give much stronger rea-
sons for annulling the treaty of joint occupancy.
A bill has been passed by the Senate, 32 to 11,
transferring the stock of the United States in the
Chesapeake and Ohio Canal to the State of Mary-
land, on condition that the state finish. the Canal
to Cumberland.

CONGRESS-ABOLITION PETITIONS
REJECTED.
The' House of Representatives have been play-
ing a strange game lately on the question of rules;
they have been occupied the whole of one day in
adopting rules for the present Congress, and have
voted both for and against the reception of peti-
tions, and finally voted to lay the whole subject
on the table for the residue of the session. This
we presume is equivalent to rejection. The sub-
ject once laid on the table, it will not be again
taken up during the term of the present Con-

Why there should have been such inconsistent
action upon the subject we d one _-vay td-day and the contrary to-morrow, and
the next day lay the whole subject on the table,
shows a quibbling on the subject which promises
but little security to the South. The rules pre-
venting the reception of petitions was rejected by
a vote of 106 to 86, so also the substitut6for it
which admitted the petitions, and laid them on
the table without reference or debate, by a still
larger vote. The final vote came up next day,
and the whole subject was laid on the table by a
vote of 88 to 86. It would have been much bet-
ilt had the question been at once decided by the
-adoption of the rule similar to the 21st rule of
last Congress. Action cannot be had too soon,
nor the subject again trifled with, without danger
to the interests of the slave States. It is a mat-
ter of rejoicing to have the question, 'even in this
way, disposed of for the next eighteen months.
Congress may now go on with the legitimate
business of the session, without being cr,anually
agitated by the presentation of in mcendiary me-
morials, or long speeches on the pretended right
of petition.
LEGISLATURE.
The Committee on Corporations, to whom
were referred the Memorial of the Union Bank of
Florida, have reported unfavorably thereon, and
recommend the passage of the Bill now pending;
before the Legislature, authorising the sale of all
equitable interests on executions at law. In other
words, a law which will authorise the sale of
property under executions, although it be covered
by mortgage not matured.
The Bank, it appears, asked for certain altera-
tions in their charter, to enable them to collect
their debts more speedily. We give an extract
from the report, in answer to this, as follows:
1( What can this Legislature do that the stock-
holders cannot do without their aid, if they are
disposed to do justice to their creditors ? The
stockholders are the chief debtors of the Bank.-
They have control of it. If they are disposed to
pay honestly, how ludicrous is it to ask for addi-
tional facilities to collect of themselves! For the
stockholders of a 'Bank to ask for a law authori-
sing them to more speedily coerce themselves to
pay their debts to theBank, is at once an absurd-
ity and an insult. Will they accept it if passed ?
Wil theenforce it if accepted ? Will not the
same in tiest that now prompts them to withhold
paymenrwithout such law, stillexist ? Is there
a'iy magic in such law, (which they can enforce,
;,:" not, as they choosee) to induce them to pay
more punctually ? WNhile they assert all legisla-
tion respecting them is powerless and nugatory
without their consent, and. when this will doubt-
less be withheld, unless it suits the peculiar in-
terests of the stockholders, without regard to
those of the people generally, it is worse than
idle for the Legislature to waste their time on the
subject.
Until the Bank is taken out of the hands of its
chief debtors, whose interest it is to depreciate its
liabilities-whose interest it is to delay and post-
ione the collection of its debts-unless the Bank
.vill unconditionally submit in advance to all such
amendments as the Legislature may deem the
public weal demands-even to the full extent of


yielding up the privilege of banking, and having
.ts affairs wound up by disinterested and impartial
men, and in whom the public have full confi-
dence, this committee deem that self respect, and
a due reguarl for the interests of the people, de-
mands that this Legislature should not further
notice any application the Bank may make. If its
stockholders resist the course above intimated, if
they exemplify their Floridal that fact will,
doubtless, have its proper influence with the
Congress of the United States, before which au-
gust body it is known the foreign faith bond credi-
tors are about to arraign the Bank; and which
body, it is a consolation to know, possesses undis-
puted, paramount and plenary power to do com-
plete and exemplary justice to all. The striking
vice in Ibis Bank in its outset was, that it was in
the hands of its chief borrowers. Its prominent
vice now is, it is in the hands of its chief debtors.
The committee believe this vice can be best cor-
rected by the bill now pending'before the Legisla-
ture, authrising the sale of equitable interest on
executions at law. This can be passed without
the aid of Ihe Bank,.and it is trusted its opposi-
tion will have o influence in preventing it.

ITS POWER IS UNIVERSAL.
"For the angel of death spread his wings on the
blast,
And breathed in the face of mankind as he passed.'
REMEMBER
That the first symptoms of sickness, complaint or
disease, has an origin which requires but little at-
tention to'overthrow the first cause of illness.
NEGLECT-
At this season Of the year when the organic static
of the body opens the system in a premonitory
way for the speedy gathering of matters which
end in CAUSES beyond the approach of medi-
cine, and finally termirjate in DEATH.
How necessary is it then that mankind should
become aware of the safeguard which can be
thrown around them at a moments notice, when
attacked by CHILLS, COUGHS, and COLDS.
Simple as such complaint knay appear at first
sight, they are the mere precursors of that disease
which ends in CONSUMPTION,
Why then will people be blind as to the proper
course which they should pursue when the ,( An-
gel of death spreads his wings on thie blast." -
Awake at once to the necessity of preserving
life and health, if you have a severe cold, fly to
that famous remedy, and use
