declaring that "times had come ad d

. NATIONAL BANK.
Tho inebriate, bloated with his poison
.. 'ous potations, until his brain whirls infu
- riate, his system reels and staggors, and
' 1 delirium tremens stares him in tlio luce,
may yet embrace his nerves for a moment
, nnd put to a Iittlo distance his terrible tutc
ns still more frequent draughts, until tired
nature sinks prostrate, and ho plunges
into the grave of Infamy and drunkenness.
We may. behold this comparison verified
in the proposition for a hationol bank.
We have been driven along in the iniquit
ous scheme of banking and dealing upon
. ft fictitious capital, mectingc-fte extrava
gance) by plunging into a greater, till the
nation is upon the verge of ruin. We
', have obviated the first perceptible evils of
" hanking, by creating more banking capi
tal, wo have endeavored lo pay our own
' debts by increasingour indebtedness, until
to look back and attempt to retrace our
steps to endeavor to reinstate' business
upon its former healthy basis, seems as
frightful to us as does it to tho.bacchana
Han afjter weeks of drunkenness to again
got sober. It is an effort, that seems to
agitate every nerve and fibre of tho sys
tem. Yet the drunkard must get sober,
' or sink into a polluited and loathsome
grave: and so our country must recede
from tho extravagance into which she
has fallen, or her business, her credit,!
ler prosperity and her happiness will bo !
. overwhelmed in the vortex of ruin.., A
national bank, or an increase of State
,b&nk may, give a momentatry impure
but like the draught of the inebriate, they
- will in the end only plunge us into deop
er and more inextricable difficulty. In 1
the progress of a nation, like the life of
an individual, we should not disdain lo
pist a glanco upon the past, and gather
up ths" fragmonts of experience as we
pass along. . Ono would suppose tho his
tory of, tho past would be sufficient to
put us upon our guard against cntor
ing into any further banking specula
- Specie is at a premium, say the Bank
men. This is consuinate nonsence, and
the idea is to deceive the people if nossi
ble. The irredeemable bank paper isde-
pieciated.anda $5 note is worth but about
fcl real money. I he Banks sav in theii
communication that if thf y pay specie, it
win ijc bought up by the brokers, and sent
out of Ihecuuntry. This is another soph
ism - what have the brokers gal lo buy
money with? l'i ovisiur.sf no. Manu.
factum?- no. What have they got?
U hy the depreciated trash nf the Banks
If Ihty CHn buy specie with that, let them
do it whoever will give it to them, must
surely be demented. The President of the
Gei mantown Bank is fearful that if the
Banks pay 8;n cie, it will 'be hoarded up
hy the country peoolc;' well, who have a
rirjht to it ? Surely the farmers have a
Oetier right to the gold and silver than the
broken banks, yet they palm r.ff their dis
credited notes, and lock up the gold and
silver, lest the 'country people shonld
hoard it up.' We hope the farmers will
renumber the kindness of the banks.
We learn from the democrat and Advo
cate that a farmer came into Pittsburgh
with a hundred dollars in bank naner. but
all the banks ri fusing' him specie, he was
torcea to part with his notes lor seventy
dollars, and all because 'sjiecie was at a
premium.' The people should analyze
ul I the sayinns and doinCH of the monnno-
lists, whose design is now and always has
been to make gold and silver a merchant
able commodity, and their own worthless
trash the currency of the country. Aa-

The following article which is taken
from the "Boston Investigator," is from
the pen of Mrs. Francis Wright Drus-
montdo not start, gcntlo reader, she
will not hurt you, but if you will read her
article, with caudor . it will do you much
good. Whatever may be her Opinions on
religion, (which it is not our province to
inquire into, considering ones religious
ideas as a concern of their own, which
all hve a perfect right to enjoy,) she has
certainly given a true history of the
quirks and quibbles of the Federal Bunk
pary in the United States.
"The tide of luck has turned."
' "OurBrittish W hies aro unlucky.
All their measures turn against then. It
is unfair, however, that in their wrath,
they should then lay at the door of tho
People, or of the national administration,
tho measures of their own coining which
have turned to their confusion. '
The British party itself imagined the
bright scheme of distributing among the
States the Surplus Revenue of the United
States. All in vain to cito to them Con
stitution, or to reason with them in the
names of decency or common sense.
They had ears for nothing, and hearts
and tongues for nothing, but for Distri
buliom Distribution they had. But as,
somehow or other, this Distribution rath
er assisted the national treasure over
mountains than over the ocean, and the
public lands in tho possession of the A
merican People than into that of the for
eign friends of the British Bank, our
British Whigs have been making a deaf
ening clamor against their own law ever
since they got it shuffled through Cong.,
Then, again, neither man nor woman
was to be suffered to speak on any ques
tion touching the public good: while
they, the British Whigs, were to liar
rar.gue every whore in Congress, in the
States' Legislature, in church, in hall, in
tavern, from window and from balcony;
on Sundays and on week days all with
out let or hindrance for the public mis
chief. "JNo babbath in revolutionary
times!" exclaimed the godlike man, and,
Heaven help us! the poor country, with
its guardian angel Liberty, and her two
handmaids, Peace and Wisdom, had like
to have been swallowed up in one mighty
holocaust by the revolutionary deamon,
Anarchy. Men of sense sat down in si
lence benenth the storm. " We will hold
our tongue: but then you must hold
yours." '( We must lie still touching
reform; but then you must lie still touch
ing abolition and antt-nbolition, law break
ing and riot making." Again tho enemy
was Worsted. -
Free speech'and free enquiry! now be
came the Cry; and public meetings, and
committees, and resolution, were to be the
fashion. But, the meeting called, lo! the
lion stirred and frightened the fox; the
People arose and the JJocency slunk
Ono more trick: To make the Banks
of importance, Mr Biddle starts a dead
run upon their specie; To starve Amer
ica, and feed Europe at her expenso, ho
would drain all into his vaults and ship
all for tho Thames. The Banks stop
payment, all things arc at a stand still
Whigs' rub their hands, Whig Mayors
are in Heaven; Corporations send rags
through all our quarters like a plague of
Egypt; shavers and brokers awake to
new hie; honest Post Masters and Col'
lectors of the Customs are to have their
heads broken; Jackson and Bohtoti are to
bo sent to Coventry; the head ot the
Post Office is to be transported; the head
of the Treasury is to be put in tho mad
house; the President is to will a National
Bank; Congressmen are to be bought up
with shares in Bank stock; Whigs are to
revel in paper bills; the People are to

produce aro all to be swept off to Europe;
Kingly loans and kingly debts are all to
be brought here, and Jonathan is to pay
chom. But damo Fortune has given a
turn to her wheel; popular Liberty rises
to the zenith, and Whig Knavery ap
proaches the nadir. The People throw
the paper to the wfnds, and send tho Banks
to Beelzebub. They read all the trick
more clearly than the gospel. They rise
in their might and laugh the enemy, to
scorn, in every trap lie nas wm, no is

more heavily the toreign yoke on the neck
