RAVIJNNA, MAY 18, 1837.
THE NEW YORlfcOMAlITTEE.
In this paper will be found tho reply of
the President to the committee of Panic
Whig Merchants of the city of New York,
nppointed at a "distress" meeting to
wait upon tho President to instruct him
how to administer tho laws of the coun
try. This modest committee dcmawM
1st. A repeal of the Treasury Circular.
2d. The suspension of suils upon custom-house
bonds until January next.
:3d. Tho immediate convocation of
Surplus, again.1 Tho Fund commis
sioners of tho Counties of Trumbull, Cuy
nhoga, Lorain, Medina and Stark have
'-Concluded to loan tho Surplus to individ
viduals. Tho Commissioners of Portago have
been in session soma days endeavoring to
get released from their obligation to the
bank. The clamorous outbreaking of
public opinion and popular feeling has
convinced the wire workers and their in
struments, that tho people arc not yet
prepared to bear the full operation of
thcir-doctrine. The united voice of the
people wan raised against being sold to
tho Cleveland Bank. The citizens of
the county with one united burst of in
dignation, reminded those who would sell
1 them to a bank, that they have not
yet become the passive, abject slaves
they had taken them for. Although, at
tho last election, a majority of tho voters
. were wheedled into voting, the whig tick
v -et, by misrepresentations. and falsehoods,
yet they were not so far reduced and clc-
based as to willingly submit to a sale and
transfer of their natural and vested rights.
What will be the result of this session of
the Commissioners wo cannot sny.
Down go the Barbers Shops. A re
- nnvt is in circulation in Town, that the
Canton bank has slopped specie payment
A passenger in theStiige from Cleveland,
last night, says that tho Cleveland bank
has also suspended specie payments.
Wonder where Portage County's propor
tion of tho Surplus revenue is! !
. . This Weather. We sao accounts of
, suicide in almost every paper we take up,
and wo do not marvel at it, if tho weather
is as bad every where as it is here. We
. have had but two or three days this spring
that it was comfortable without fire to
hit by and ovor-coats and mittens have
been' in almost constant rcquisition.-
There is Irost almost every night, we
write. thia article by a large hickory fire
Suspensions by the Banks. By pa
pcrs received this morning we learn that
the Banks in the city of New York have
stooped payments not because they have
not specie in thcr vaults, but for the pur
pose of distressing the Country still fur-
liter, for political effect.
r The Bankof the United States of Penn
sylvania has also stopped payment to in
crease the' panic and subserve political
ends.' ' -
If the officers of the banks would fol
low tho example of thoso of the bank of
tho Metropolis at Washington city, confi
dence woufd lie restored and business ri
gain resume its natural course.
The Bank of the Metropolis lias pub
lished the following notice:
Bank of the Metropolis,
"u .."' ' May 12, 1737. -"
Notwithstanding tho information which
' has reached Washington, of the suspen
sion of specio payments by the Banks of
New York, as well a3 somo ot the Banks
-of Philadelphia and Baltimore, tho Presi
dent and Directors of tho Bank of tho
Metropolis, confident in their ability to
fulfill all engagements and liabilities of
the Bank, have determined to continue
f specie payments. Satisfied of tho strength
of the Bank of tho Metropolis to sustain
, its credit, tho President, Directors, and
ashier, have determined to plege, and
they will, individually and collectively,
pledge, their private fortunes for all just
claims against the institution. '

Clcmmons, situated on the road from Al
ligator to Livingston's Terry, on the
Suwanee, about twenty miles from the
latter place, was attacked by the Indians.
The inmates, consisting of Mrs. Clcm
mons and four children, and a little or
phan lad living with Mrs. Clcmmons, were
murdered. Mr. C. was from home at the
time this awful visitation was made upon
his family. He returned on tho 10th in
stant, the second day after the horrid
transaction, and the first intimation of tho
calamity that had befallen his wife and
little ones, was tho desolate appearance
of his home, and then the bodies of his
wife and children, fifty or more yards
from the house. '
They had been shot while attempting
to escape, as it would seem from tho po
sition in which tho bodies lay. They
were unscalpcd. Tho children were shot
in the head, and so near were the guns
when discharged, that the heads of these
unfortunate, children were literally blown
to pieces! And to add to the horror of
tho sight and anguish of the bereaved
husband and father,the body of the young
est child, a babe, was almost devoured,
and the. arm of the mother eaten otF by
What a scene was this? W hat a duty,
a heart-rending duty was there to be per
formed by the husband, (he father ! To
collect the mutilated bodies of his wife
and five children, four of them his own,
and pluco them in a corn house till he
could go eight miles for r.ssisiance to bu
ry the dead. Breathes tho man with
heart so cold as not to sympathiso with
the afllictcd and suffering East Florida.
Mexican Copper Monet. Tho coin
which has been the cause of the recent in
surrection in Mexico, is of two kinds,
and arc termed Quartilias, Tlacos or O
chevas, which latter is the mint term.
The Quartilla, is in value one-third of
Rial do Plata, or eighth of a dollar.
The Tlnco or Ochcva, is one-eighth of
a Rial do Plata.
Tho pieces are small and rudely coined,
and arc estimated much above the intrin

The coin was in existence prior to tho
establishment of the present government,
and it is supposed there was between two
and three millions of dollars worth then
in use. The exigencies of the new gov
ernment suggested a new emission, and it
is calculated that in all tho past year
there was struck off at the government
mint 2,200,000 dollars worth some of
tho States also had permission to coin a
Tho rude manner iu which the money
was manufactured, and its great advanco
beyond its intrinsic value, excited the cu
pidity of counterfeiters, and an amount
equal to that authorized by law was th rown
into circulation, thus making altogether,
upwards of seven million of dollars worth
of copper monc3r, as the medium of trade
in a populace not exceeding seven million.
Tho government made it obligatory up
on those in their cmployas officers of the
customs aud post masters to receive ono
third of the. amount of their salaries in
When the evil had spread so wide as to
become a palpable annoyance, tho first
project of the government was to call in
this money and re-issue it at a reduced
value of forty per cent, but as this would
be attended with a heavy loss to tho Treas
ury, and was found to be troublesome and
almost Impracticable, as Well as unprofit
able, it was resolved that tho loss should
fall upon the holders, and tho edict .was

White's Trial. Poor human nature,
from ace to age the subject of scorn the
victim of prejudice each has made it a
target at which to launch its arrows; but
yet, amid the clouds ot prejudice, and tne
storms of abuse, there aro lights that
shine out in glorious beauty upon its di
vine countenance, lilting the creature to
the highest pinnacle of renown. Traits
have been displayed honorable to tho
heart and ennobling to the soul traits
that break in upon the dream ol the mis
anthrope, and make him sigh that he has
ever cursed a world which proves itself
We have boon led to those remarks by
a scene attendant on the trial ot White,
for burning the Treasury, which wo have
had the melancholy pleasure of witness
ing. We noticed some days ago, in gen
oral terrrB, tho devotion exhibited by the
wife of the prisoner towords her unfortu
nate husband.-Sincc then, wo were struck
by a little incident, which we think, is in
an esnecinl manner worthy of record;
and it is a bright testimonial to the sex,
that nature which has been so much tra.
duced, that we now place it in our col
umns. It fell to tho province of Mr. John Key
to open the case on tho part of the Uni
ted States; and in tho course of his re
marks he felt it his duty to urge upon the
consideration of the jury tho bad charac
ter of the prisoner. He poured upon him
a withering array of epithets.
During the Phillipic, White sat perfect
ly patient. His wife was sitting next to
him; and as soon as Mr. Key finished tho
invective, the placed her hand upon his
arm and spoke to him tenderly, as if to
soothe him. White gazed with affection
on her lace, and we imagined that tl
voice of the lawyer was still and mute in
jiis ear. He heard no more the loud and
angry charges he listened no longer to
tho terms cf reproach heaped upon him
lie saw not the jury that were to try
mm he saw not tho bench that, perhaii
was to pass sentence upon his crime but
his ears drank in tho sweet tones of that
woman. lie saw her deep love shining
through her eyes his memory went back
to other and calmer and holier days. An
what deep and yearning love was center
ed in the spirit of that lone wife ! Her
husband almost a branded .'felon within
ono step of the gibbet his name a by
word his character a reproach aroun
her perhaps an indifferent audience no, we
will not say that, but surrounded by pc
sons careless of his fate she poured
forth the modest, vet sublime, tribute of
her love, her protecting afleclior,, her tri
ed and trusty devotion, into the car of he
Beautiful picture of the human heart
did the scene present ! and in our mind
ot least, it cast a shanow which notlun
shall efface. It will serve as a brigl
memento of a scene replete with anguish
and affection. And this was jhe woman
who declared to a witness the noble senti
ment, that, -'ir ell tho world believed he
husband guilty, she, in her heart, knew
him innocent." This is equal to tho wife
of the poor Irishman, who, when they
were dragging him to paison because he
would not betray his conscience, thus ad
dressed him: "Remember your soul and
your God ! '
Mrs. White may bo the wife of a con
victed culprit, but her name will be link
ed with virtue ana romance.
Horrible. A negro wretch named Job

her father, she had gone into tho village
lor a physician to visit ono ol the childiv
of the family, which was not expected to
live. On her return home the black mis
creant met her in a small piece of woods,
through which the road passed, and oe
spite of her crio3 of 'murder,' dragged
her about twenty yards from the road to a
hollow surrounded by thick underbrush,
and havinc choked her until sho was al
most insensible, and utterly incapable of
further resistance, ho perpetrated tho de
moniac deed which must destroy he
hones and happiness forever. He was sen
