rennVncy In ttie Ktnte and national councils, there
were but bout time hundred and thirty Slutc
Bank' in tlio Union, and every imin knows, who
run discriminate between an enemy of abolitionism
mid a friend to negro suffrage ami negro testimony,
that tlis present number amounts to upwards of
eight hundred!! And yet wo are told lliat not
withstanding tlio Vlii;;s have been in a powerless
minority in most of the Stato Legislatures, that
tbey wicked beings lin vo had power, neverthe
less, to erect oil tlio overplus of fire hundred Ranks
which hove been chartered tince they were thrown
into the minority I and that too contrary to the
wishes of their opponents! A greater contempt for
popular intelligence, nnd a greater sacrifice of sense
to sound of reason to insanity of truth to faLe
hood was r.ever made by a 1'ericlesor a Cromwell
to deceive tlio unsuspecting multitude. ! lino a ing,
then, that the same party who of lute deal such do
mmcintory vengeance on tlio iSinto Ranks, hive
made and chartered those instiiutious in the Stales
f Maine, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Now
York, Alabntna, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tcnne".e...
Ohio, Arkansas, and even in alissouri; if we
judge what ice do not know, by what ice do know,
we are bound to conclude that the President. Cash
iers, and Directors of "all and singular,'' tbc-e
banks are members of the Van Duron party ! What
political purpose, then, do tliey wis to effect b
"locking up theirspeciu and their notes t" If nny
n'. all, it is to induce the people to establish, for lie;
good of the officeholders, a pure metallic currency.
What party is that, and what, politii-.il ohject
have they in view, who have " locked up the sp. cio
rind the notes" of the State 11a uk of Missouri! Who
will answer thai? There ore some in this commu
nity, who, if they were a day's ride from the proof
upon the subject, would say that it. is the Whig
party ! that they have "lucked up the specio and
notes to make money scarce," in order that politi
cal capital might be made for the November election!
And if our Bank was controlled by the Whig party
(and thank Uod it is not) I have not the least douiit
but that the present suspension of busings by that
institution, would bo attributed, by theso federal
circular writers, to a disposition on the pari, of the
managers "to make money scarce," and thereby to
operate on the Presidential election. Rut thanks
be asccibed to all concerned, the Presidents, and
Cashier, nnd a great majority of the Directors ure
of the Hentonian stamp, who never (leu I in hum
buggery or political capital O ! no and who are
justly and morally responsible for the good or evil
management of the Bank.
But the attempt which is now made by those Fe
deral office-holders, tc escape popular vengemec by
essaying to render " a powerless minority responsi
ble for all the wrong, and a powerful majority for
all the good," is but another evidence of their total
disbelief in the intelligence of the people ; and is
but another proof that "federal arrugance believes
that democratic credulity will bo weak enough, and
silly enough, to swallow the whole." A stranger
coming into our country, and being unacquainted
with the relation the two parties have borne to
each other for the last twelve years ; after hearing
the ridiculous clamor which is now set. up about
wicked Whig measures and wicked Whig policy,
would certainly come to the conclusion that the
Whig party sure enough had had uninterrupted as
cendency in the State and National councils; that
they were the most numerous, powerful, and wicked
faction on earth, and that these pure, unad '.iltirated
Democrats were pinks of political perfection, and
could not number a sufficient force, in any part of
the country, to make up a "corporal's guard !"
How superlatively erroneous would be the conclu
sions of this stranger.
And how unwilling soever they may be to admit
it, these samo infallible Democrats, for the last
twelve years, have had the Presidents, Vicn Presi
dents, both Houses of Congress, the State Legisla
tures, the Judiciary, the Army, the Navy, the Trea
sury, the Post Office, the Customs, the Land Otlico,
the Mint, an irresistible and uncont rotable power
end yet, notwithstanding all this; after the country
have witnessed these twelve years seigeut Micgatcs
of Fort Experiment ; after thoy have carried into
operation all their measures , and after their legis
lative and financial career has ended in a bla.o of
continual, incessant, and depressing kulx to every
branch of our interests, they no'V have tho base and
brazen effrontery, to stand up in the face of this
abused nation, and attempt to evade all responsibi
lity, by trumpeting forth the seniles outcry, "Hie
Uanks have done it ! the brokers hare done it ! lb'
shavers hate done it !! Xic liiddle has done it .'! the
Whigs have done it ! ! ! Federal arrogance, utid
wilful prevarication havo never conceived or tiller
ed a. more palpable and impudent insult to tho piin
ciplcs and intelligence of this people, than is man
ifested in the shallow and unholy stratagem by
which thoy essay to skulk from responsibility.
With an equal regard to truth might the linn- say
that the mouse had interposed his power and pre
vented him from destroying the jackal ; as for these
vain-glorious public agents to put in the plea that
the Whigs have prevented them frum exercising
their delegated power for the benefit of the pe ople j
or, that the Whigs, whom they wont allow to h'tve the
power to do any good, (mark that,) have, neverthe
less, tue power to do all the evil! And notiviiii
standing all the rant, niPndncitv, and contemptible
nonsense which are exhibited in the Van Huron
presses of the day, with regard to (Jen. Harrison's
" sneaking and skulking behind a mongrel com
n.ittre of Federalists and Abolitionists," the nota
ble lenders of these same presses, andlhis sa,n". jiar
ty, and at the same time, are using every artifice
which unholy duplicity can invent, to " siuuk mid
skulk behind a committee," composed of the ir.We
Whig party, in order to screen ( V mv'n s from that
unrelenting popular vengeance which an injured
people have in store for the authors and abetters of
political sin and political corruption.

When the Israelites were groaning under the
bondage of the Egyptians, the Lord desired Moses
to deliver a message to 1'hurouh and tho people of
Israel. Mo.es, sensibly impressed with tho im
portance and sanctity of tho office of God's ambas
sador, replied, who am I, thai I should go unto
l iinroah, &c. The Lord expostu'ated with him,
nnd told him that he would bo with him and give
him success. But Mo-es answered again, and
said, "But behold they will not. hearken unto me,
nur hear my voice ; for they will Miy.tho Lord hath
not appeared unto thee."
The Lord then performed a miracle, and bid Mu
sis do the satne, and if questioned by Ihu Israelites
as to the authenticity of his commission, that he
should again perform tho miracle to corroborate his
words. Notwithstanding all this, Mosus again re
plied ' 0 mv Lord, I am not an eloquent man,

upon his commission until ho was accompanied by

the public intelligence if it hopes either to thus
avoid tho main and tr ,e i-ssuo, or in anywise all'cct
the rc-p'-etabie stiai'g. rs who were invited toad
ilreis the as- cmb'y. It was doubtless deemed a
convenient Mode tu skip over the broad and uniptal
itied denial wl.i'.u was given by Mr. Ilunton to the
Ciiuuuii-s vihicli v. ere "P.usolved'' by the previous
democratic meeting respecting the Harrisburg Con
vention, of which ho was a member and the com

the truth of ttieir charges against tlmt body, are
doubtless content to put upon "Cush" the task of
sltiitd-ri.ig the man w hom thoy were afraid to meet.
So much for all that. As to Major Rollins we
no truly happy to discover that he is still alive,
and betting on the "war horse." It was doubtless
exceedingly mortifying to him to discover that his

better accord with the taste of the connoiseurs of
the Democrat !
As to tho main results of the day, wo have al
ready received the commendation of being a "sworn
guesscr." We charged in our last paper that tho
meeting of " the democracy" had been purposely
postponed to Monday, in order thereby to draw oil
as many of the fair minded men of that tottering
early as possible from the convincing and the with
ering FACTS with w hich our Whig speakers en
tertain such assemblages as honor them with their
presence. Tho result roved our sagacity for
which we claim no other credit than that we look
experience of the past as a criterion fur the future.
Tue leaders of the Democracy, always wdien they
could, had shullled out of, and evaded fair and open
discussion and we hence predicted they would do
so again. They diu! The Democrat admits that
tin arrangement had Leeti made by Dr. Lowkv and
Col. Bitten, by which "the Democracy" were to
euro tho Court House two hours and a hM, first,
