er has not capacity to weigh it. It is said
the Suffolk Bank after some coaxing, to ac-
commodate him has agreed to receive it. He
subjected the State to $800 expenses to get
it here and as much more to get it back, and
if he had suffered it to remain with you at
first he could have sold his drafts at 1-4 per
ct, premium.
0! what wisdom and financial skill does
our Treasurer possess."
Here is an excellent commentary on the Fi-
nancial skill of the Judah-Dannaite and Ben-
tonian disciples of the Gold Humbug. Our
Van Buren friends in Maine were determined
to be true to their Jacksonian doctrines-and
drew for the real SPECIE CURRENCY-when
the whole transfer might have been managed
without disturbing a single dollar of hard
money. But after having gone to the unus-
ual and unnecessary expense of transferring
the Gold--they have been compelled to send
it all back the way it came at a loss of nearly
a thousand dollars to the State of Maine!-
,This loss is independent of the de!ay and loss
of interest. This is something like the fin-
anciering of the General Government-which
instead of paying off the three and four per
cents loans while it-hired money at six per
cent to make good the deficiencies of the.
Post Office. We imagine that the Gold
Humbuggers of Maine will be content with
drawing in the style that will be most con-
sistent with the received rules of Banking-
and not pay again through the nose for' the
pleasure of receiving Gold to send it back a-
Bgosion Atlas.

Pags, who is now delivering a course of Lec-
tures at the Odeon, has lately made the valu-
able discovery that iron, had or any metal may
be substituted fo.r the expensive article of cop-
per in galvanic batteries, whereby the cost of
this apparatus will be diminished by about one
half, In order that a battery of this construc-
tion should equal one of copper and zinc, it is
necessary that the exciting liquid should be
some acid, holding the oxide of copper. A so-
lution of blue vitrol or the sulphate ofcopper,is
preferable from its cheapness. A small plate
of lead and zinc, each the size of a cent, im-
mersed in a wine glass of the above solution
willive bright sparks, strong shocks and prom
duce decompositions when connected with a
dynamic multiplier of 320 feet in length. He I
has further found that a tolerable good battery
mAy be made of one metal only, viz: zinc. pro-
vided one of the plates much exceeds the other
in size, and the sulphate ot copper be used as
the exciting liquid,.
Among other discoveries lately madeby Dr. i
Page in relation to this subject, we notice the '
productiou of sparks and shocks from a ther-

ter at London, for having in a manly manner
denied the authorship of a letter which was
published in that paper and imputed to him,
and a!so for avowing that with all his well
known attachment to his political friends at
home, he considered himself abroad the repre-
sentative of his country, and not of a party.

FLOUR RIUTERS.-The trial of the persons
arrested for an assault on the store of Hart &
Co. at New York, and destroying some hun-
dred barrels of flour, has turned out a mere
farce. Several of them were convicted, but
the Recorder, in the plenitude of his-mercy,
has imposed such insignificant sums as fines,
and such short terms of imprisonment, that the
sentences are in fact no punishmneAt at all.--
The wliol] aggregate of imprisonment is only
ten months, and the aggregate of all the fines
is $30! for a most disgraceful riot and destrur-
tion of property.

circumstances combine to give to the Bank of
he United States, at this moment, strength
nd means, equal to the alacrity displayed by
.s conductors to aid the commercial world.
The question as to the validity of its charter
s at an end, as is sufficiently set forth by the
proceedings of the Committee of Investigation
f the Pennsylvania Legislature.



In addition thereto, we learn t mat the Bank
has amicably completed its settlement with the
Govern ent of the United States, for its share
of the capital and profits of the old Bank-so
that, with no vexed questions open.,and no
clog upon its onward course,-the means and
credit of the new Bank are in the fullest power
and fitted to inspire every where the mo en-..
tire confidence.A. Y. A'n.

In Senate, Thursday,.Varch 29.
Agreeably to assignmen the Senate pro-
ceeded to the consideration of the Resolves on
the subject of Slavery; the question being on
the amendment reported on the 24th inst. by
the select committee of the Senate, viz:
Strike out the last resolution adopted by the.
House ot Representatives, and insert as Ibl-
"Resolved, That Congress, having exclusive
legislation in the District of Columbia, possess
the right to abolish Slavery and the Slave
trade -therein; and that the early exercise of
said right is demanded by the enlightened sen-
timent of the civilized world, by the principles
of the Revolution. and by humanity."'
On motion of Mr. Alien of Worcester, the.
question was taken by yeas and nays, and de-
termined unanimously in the affirmative, year
So said amendment was adopted. Mr. Al-
len then moved further to amend said resolves
by adding thereto as follows, viz:,
sResolved, That Slavery, being an admitted
moral and political evil whose continuance
wherever it exists, is vindicated mainly on the
ground of necessity, it should be circumscribed
within the limits of the States where it has
been already established, and that no new
State should hereafter be admitted into the
Union, whose constitution of government shall 1
sanction or permit the existence of Slavery." i
And on motion.of Mr. Adams of Essex, the
question on said amendment, was takenAy i
yeas and nays, and determined in the affirma-
tive, yeas 33, nays 1.
So said amendment was adopted.

The Specie Circular, says the American, we

in various papers, will not be rescinded. "The

Let the nation then not forget such obsti-

S; mmunications from a Committee of the

Jution unanimously adopted by the Whig Con.
vention, heid in the Representatives' Hall, on

1f nomination to re-'ecetion.
I feel myself greatly honored by the favora-

accept with gratitude, this renewed testimo-
'nial of the confidence of the Whigs of Massa-

give effect to the act of the Convention, it will

SGENTLErMEN.--Your letter of the 18th inst.
-has been received, communicating ,the copy
of a Resolve passed by a unanimous vote at a.
Whig Convention held at tie Representatives'
Hall on the 15th of March current, nominating
me, as a candidate for re-election to the o'ice :
of Lieutenant Governor of the Commonwealt h
for the ensuing political year."
That my services for the Commonwealth,
have been so satisfactory as to elicit this re-
'newed and flattering testimonial of confidence'
and regard from the Representatives of the
Whig party, is greatly gratifying to me, and I
prav you to Delieve, that .I duly appreciate,
while I acccrp the honor.
i am, with great respect, your servant,
-To Messrs. Charles Russell, &c. Committee.

For the Eagle.
Suffer me through your columns to intro-
duce to the notice of your readers, a little book'
recently published by the Massachusetts Sab-
bath Sclhol Society It is entitled, '.PUT
OFF AND PUT ON," or the vile and-beou-
tiful apparel, by Simon. Your readers have
already been introduced to the author by an
,occasionalEssay which has been furnished by
.his pen. -If theymhave read, (and I presume
they have.) they will. ndt soon forget the im-
pressions they experienced from the perusal of
.the ,"Covetous Disciple," the "Disobliging Dis-
ciple," and the Sky Rocket."
The little work to which I invite the atten-
tion of your readers, has been prepared by the
fameanEm. It was .''rirtelc as intimated on
tho title page, for the Massachusetts Sabbath
School Society ; and in the introduction, the
author addresses himself to his young readers.
But though primarily and specially designed
for the beneft of the young, yet, in my judg-
ment, no person, young or old, cwn rise up from
its0perusal without. t being st the same time both
delighted and instructed. The style, simple
and easy, and therefore peculiarly adapted to
the capacity and comprehernsiou of the young,
is at the same time chasto and dignified and

eminently captivating to those of more advan-
t- eed years and higher attainments.
The subjects discussed in this little treatise
cannot fail deeply to interest every thinking
;mind. They are truths intimately connected
with our happiness here and our destiny here-
after. They are truths, therefore, about which
no one can be unconcerned who embraces the
doctrines of Divine Revelation, and who be-
Slieves that when his body is laid in the gave,
his spirit will return to God who gave it, or
who, ir~the language of the author of whom I
am speaking, believes that himself "with all
the inhabitants of the world, will be.called upon
to appear at a future day, in the presence ol
0ONE, whose glory is to') bright even for the
vision of Angels."
The subject matter of the work appears to
have been suggested from two passages o
Scripture found in the 3d Chapter of Colossians
-"PUT OFF all these, anger, wrath, blas-
phemy, &c.-PUT ON, therefore, as the elec
of God, holy and beloved bowels of mercies
kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, lonI

and .the drops were scalding hot. "But she
could not help it." But she did help it. For
no sooner had ,she discovered that a door had
been partly open, and.several distinguished
guests had-heard the whole, than all was quiet
as a summer's eve. You wouldiave thought
from her appearance there had not been a rip-
pie on that sea for a twelvemonth. She could
help it. She was no more obliged to put on
such a robeof fretfulness, than she was to meet.
her guests in a coat of mail, r in a garment of
sackcloth.. She could help it, Else there ne-
ver would have been in the Scriptures any in-:
junction of "forbearing one another in love '
or any thing about a "quiet spirit." pp. 58, 62.
In the second part Qf this admirable little
work, the writer specifies some of the beauti-
ful apparel, and the traits of character-figura-
tively represented by them. Under this divi-
sion of the subject are enumerated "KIND-
and "CHARITY."
The following extracts ar,e from the section
on Meekness and Gentleness:
"We have seen gold and silver thread wo-
ven together so as to take one texture very
costly and very beautiful. And here we have
f a garment of it in the union of Meekness and
GentleneSs. Meekness is the quietness and
Speaceftlness with which we receive the inju-
ries of others.-Gentleness is the opposite of
Small roughness and harshness in manners or
language. It impties a kind, inoffensive, affa-
fble and aflectionate deportment. Now let us
s put them together, and weave .these gold and
- silver threads into a single texture, and it wi I
t make a beautiful garment. The Saviour wore
it, and that speaks highly in its praise. We
, read of the "meekness and gentleness" -1
g Christ. And I suppose their never was so per.

I would rather invite your readers to a perusal
of the book, and let them make their own anal-
ysis, which I am quite sure they would do with,
very great pleasure and profit. "
After the introduction, in which the writer
exhibits' the 'inispensable ieedrsity of a radi-'
cal change in men's characters, as ah indispen-
SsbblI preparation fbrth'eir introduction into the
presence and society of God, and the holy in-
-habitants' of Heaven', he goes on to notice
more particularly some of those traits of char-
acter. which, under the metaphor of vile cloth-
ing, Wpe are to PUT OFF., He specifies in"
These several articles of vile taiment are
minutely described, their deformity is exhibited
by apt illustrations, and the sin and guilt of.
those who are constantly clad in them, is stri-
kingly portrayed by living examples. Two or
three extracts in the writer's own words will
confirm the view here advanced- The follow-
ing is on the subject of Anger:
',See that little child, The wise' and kiiM
Father refuses to give what the child
wants~ becau e knows it would be injurious
to him. B c Jild is in a rage. He kicks
and scre~anP l the floor. His
countenancehaeelo't ta iti His tongue
utters only spite and bitterness. 'The sight is
a painful one. Let us turn away from it. But
here is another with aisimilargarment. That
mran's horse is vicious but in trying to com-
mand him the man has lost .all command of
himself. Like a ship in a squall of wind, he
moves anly before the gale of his own passions.
lie becomes as irrational as the'beast he is b6a-
ting. Many a poor animahao fallen dead un-
der the fury of an angry master. *
What think yop now'!? s not anger a piece of
vile raiment? Can you see any loveliness in it?
Can you write any two words that shall better
express its character than these, guilt and
shame? And if you think such raiment as this
odious and hateful, no you not suppose the great
God thinks so too? And should not every one
who expects to come into his presence, put it
off as soon as possible?" pp.*22-23.j
The following extract are from the section
on Fretfulness:
"Here is another piece of apparel for us to
look at. Fretfulness, strictly speaking, is a
kind ot anger. which we have already noticed;
Just as one's skirt is a part of his 'oat. Anger
is the artillery-fretfniness is the small arms.
We wi1 !look at cases There

scissors. She has already made many holes
in the sash, and picked off some of the wood

age half across the r I wanted to go with the rest of the girls after
berriep,"anrJ mother would not let me go. It's
just like her. She never lets me go when I
want to. I don't care if I do hurt the sash and
break the scissors. She might let me go
then." I do not know but she was dressed in
silks ; but she had on one very unbecoming;
piece of raiment, that I know; and one that;
looked had enough for a r -, no, it was too
had for a beggar girl to wear. *
But this kind of apparel .does not look- any bet-
ter on those who are iot children. Sometimes
a coat that would ill become a boy, weH be-;
comes an. But this is no a coat of this
kind. It never looked wefl 'on any human be-,
ing, high or low, youqg or old. I was struck;
the other day with the appearance of a man..
A laborer in his em.ploymentihad, acRcidentally
injured an article of some value. There was
tinder about him, and here war-a spark. There
was not boisterous passion, but a spirit 'of fret-.
fulness. -You careless, good for nothing fel,-
low, just see uwhat you have done. You are
oas stuid .'s a IIottentot. You're not it to be
trusted with any ihirtg." So the steam hissed
away at this rate for some time."
"-But we must fret at the carelessness of oth-
ers; who can help it?" "
MviiTs! But this man ceased the moment
his eyes met a pious"friend,whe had not before
been observed. The lowering sky was cloud-
less in a moment. The scowl hurried off that
countenance, like light vapor in a gale. The
dashing waves were qtiet in an instant. Yes.
and there ought not.to ,have been any such
waves, but a n"meek and quiet spirit."
