For 8e Xenpbli Affttl
I thought I would not trouble the public any
mere with my thoughts about banks, but in
year last paper I see a communication of your
correspondent " S.," upon the subject of the
heading ef this article that appeals to the lo
cal fears of our city, asserting the position that
extinction of banks would make her a mere
shipping point, and transfer her trade aad
prosperity to New Orleans. This article is
evidently written by one who has constant and
practical experience in banking adrataistra
tien as much is impliedly admitted In the
course of his article. Whether this should give
additional weight to hia thoughts upon the sub
ject, is somewhat doubtful. There is danger
of every pure professional man giving uadue
weight to the subject of bis prof esstoa. There
is danger of a banker, who has speat bis life
in the atmosphere of credtts, wbese thoughts
have been confined to the regular routine of
their use and employment, giving uadue value
to their instrumentality ia effecting commercial
movements. It requires no experience in the
practical details of baBkiag to give oa an in
sight into the principles ef political eceaeay ;
and H- is the pare, slespie principles at politi
cal eceaeny chat must test the truth of theo
ries, either ef bankers er specie curreaey advo
cates. These last advocate no new theory
they advocate the very same principles that were
proclaimed by Adam Smith, the father ef po
litical economy, more than one hundred years
A full and conclusive answer to " S. V pecu
liar -views I think is ceataieed is year paper
of the SSod ef October, in a ceasmuaieatien oe
the subject ef the " Ceaseqaenees ef Suspen
sion." I beg leave to quote a brief summary
of that writers' views, which I think he has
faiiy proved in the coarse ef his article :
" It is very elear, then,'' says he, " that the
suspension ef our banks is.goiag te exert little
influence upon the price or movement ef the
cotton crop. If Liverpool and Manchester, and
New York, and Boston, and New Orleans were
able, or become able to engage actively in the
cotton trade ; in ten days, nay in one day, the
trade will become active here, suspension or no
suspension. And you might clean every bank
offfrom the surface of Tennessee, and in twen
ty days after the cotton at Memphis would be as
brisk as ever, If the'trade be active and brisk
at ew Orleans, and New York, and Liverpool,
and the prices would not be varied the breadth
of a hair by the absence of the banks. Cer
tainly thftitaode of coodbxtiog this trade would
be changed. Now, the btyer at Memphis pays
for the cotton In the bank cotes which he gets
from the Hanks for bills onacceptances on New
Orleans, and the New Orleans buyer pavsior
the cotton there in the bask notes (er checks)
which he gets for bills or acceptances on New
York, Boston and Europe. Abate our banks,
and the foods would as certainly- come from
Aew Orleans and the North and Europe in some
other shape' to buy odr cotton as the waters of
the earth to seelc their level, or as the wants of
men to.stek to be satisfied."
And such Is the truth verified by the experi
ences of men, as well as by the logical conclu
siveness of the elementary principles of polit
ical economy. Until recently, tbVgret city of
St. Louis had lHtle or co basking capital; and
yet she seemed to have no difficulty in moving
her vast and complicated commerce. New
Orleans has always had a small banking capi
tal in proportion to her commerce, and yet in
ordinary times wehave heard of" no difficulty
in carrying oa her commercial movements, and
there have been fewer commercial failures
there within the last twenty years than in any
cityx)f the United States, proportionate to the
extent of her commerce.
Even now, whilst thousands of the most sub
stantial houses are breaking ia New York,
Philadelphia, and other commercial cities, 1
have heard of but one single failure in the city
of New Orle&Bs; and her stock banks continue
to pay specie for their issues.
And so will it ever be the nearer any com
mercial city approximates to a pure specie
currency, the less liable Is she to commercial
fluctaatioBB, aad the less damaged Is she by
Cuba carries on an Immense annual com
merce, and yet, if I am informed aright, she
has not a bank In her borders. France, until
within thirty years back, bad n almost pare
metallc currency ; aad the foreign commerce of
France is equal to that of the Uafted States.
Butletusto"SjJs" argument: He says the
banks have furnished the means whereby the
crops are bought and told at Memphis, and at
the time of the most active and large trade in
cotton, in the crop eeassn, the amount ef bank
notes and credits issued will reaeh into the
neighborhood of four millions of dollars.
Now let me ask "S."cpoa what this foBr
million of dollars of bank notes aad credits Is
founded? It is foundel upon the sale, and
realization of our cottoi crop. Every dollar
of bank notes or credits jiisoed in the transac-
I tion is based upon a dollar's worth of cotton or

It would only require the restrvlngof a llttle
more than one-fourth of the value of one year's
cetton crop to create all the capital in specie
to carry on the aarae. commercial movements
ef Memphis boa' ejected by bank credits.
By repealing usury laws, in ene year's time,
then, according to the statistics of Memphis
finance and commerce, furnished by the writer
himself, we could have banks of deposit and
discount with a specie capital of four millions
of dollars, sufficient to carry on all the com
mercial mevemeots of Memphis is the same
way they are bow carried on by Memphis
banks, without the danger of contractions, rx
paneiess, suspensions and consequent clogging
of the wheels of commerce Incident to the ex
isting system. Look at the process. These
deposit banks and brokers can discount New
Orleans acceptances fer the cotton buyer here
with pure specie or their equivalent With
these New Orleans acceptances they can get
New York exchange. That New York exchange
is purchased from them by the merchant to pay
his eastern debts, with the same specie, or Us
equivalent, they paid out In the first instance,
and so on. Thus you see that the very same
processes can be carried on of the trade of Mem
phis by the Instrumentality of banks of deposit
and discount, or even brokers alone, as is now
carried on by our banks. Let net our people
be frightened let them. examine the subject
and these bugbears will all fee. dissipated.

London has been horrified by "a mysterious
murder." Ia the gray of the early morning,
some lads rowing up the rivtr observed a bun
dle resting on one of the abutments of Waterloo
Bridge. It proved to be a carpet bag, locked
and corded, with a considerable portion of the
cord hanging down into the water. The boys
carried off what they believed to be a prize ;
but when the big was opened it was found to
crntain the mutilated fragments of a human
body. TweBty pieces of what bad recently
been a living ereature were exposed to .view
with every incident of horror.- Limbs had been
jawed into bits, flesh had been hacked from
the bones, the trunk had been disemboweled,
and the .bead was wanting. So complete had
been the eesMaioutioa of the corps-, and the
obliteration of all external features of humani
ty, that it was ouly by Indirect conclusions that
even the sex could be established. The body
was that of a male. The bag centaiaedJb.e-.
sides these portions of the body, a 'complete
suit of apparel, coat, sartout, walscoat, trow
sers, drapers, socks, shirt, and undershirt, the
hat and shoes alone being oet forthcoming.
No mark or ether means of identification could
be discovered on any of these articles ; but they

The tell keeper of the bridge oa the previous

In ceessquence of the attitude assumed by the

the members of the Belfast Reman Catholic

they may now rely oa the Executive for pro

and dissolve their association.
The members of the Liverpool Garrick Cob

advent of wide extension of Christian sym
pathy toward the poor player, whose time,
aealth and talent are spent ia unfolding t us
tbe beauties of the drama that drama which
should rank among tha noblest institutions of
the Old and New World." A reply from the
Kev. gentleman reflects somewhat severely
upon tne religious press of the country. He
de lares: " More encouraging and morer grate

the public at large because more directly
confirmatory of my views and auspicious of

the actors themselves, and of the associations

THE HOKET CRISIS
While in Eagland the troubles in the United
States were exercising a most depressing influ
ence, there was less of John Bull's usual
grumbling upon tbe subject than was to have
bee expected. This was owing partly to the
existence of other depressing Influences besides
those flowing in from this side the Atlantic,
and partly from a belief that par difficulties
were less serious than they have"pOved to be.
When John underetands bow thorough is our
catastrophe, a resurrection of the literary,
spirit of the Rsv. Sidney Smith may be looked :
The London Herald says that in former times

Although my statement in relation to the rue

called for, I hare abstained from appearing
before the public heretofore, snd would not do

take no exception to the course adopted by
General Pillow in this particular. He bad a
right to pub.ish a part or the whole of my evi

Sir: I invite four attention to the article
herein enclosed from the Balfiaeze faa,' (first
published in a Western paper, pretending to
give an account of the proeedines of a council
of war, and representing that it was beM at the
Dead-quarters of tne uommanmng ieoerai in
July last, and that you were present, in which
it was proposed to giv General Santa Anna or
some other Mexican,' for the purpose of par
chasing a peace, a portion of the three nilhotu
appropriated by Congress.
Nothing could have appeared more improba
ble to the government Lerej which" is. fully
aware that not the slightest authority for any
such proceeding has in any way emanated Uoai
it, man this story, yet 1 am paised to te otugea
to say that suspicions do to some extept pre
vail, aad appear to be gaining ground that there
is H ime fovadalien for the rumor.
You will, I trust, agree wMr me inegarding
it of the greatest importance to tbaie allegH to
have been present on that occasion, as well as
te the government, that this rumor, assnBied te
be unfounded, should be met with an authori
tative denial; but should it be that anythlag
has taken place which could have afforded even
& colorable pretext for putting forth the state
ment herewith sent to you if any such bropo '
sition as la therein mentioned, has beea offered,
or entertained if any has been acceded to, and
steps taken to carry it into effect tbe Prest
dent directs that you communicate to this De
partment all that, you know, and all that you
can ascertain in relation to the whole matter.

the Baltimore San enclosed, purporting to give
an aceouat ef the proceedings of- a cotmctt of
war held at General Scott's Head Quartets in
Puebla, Mexico, in July last. In your, note
you advise rae, that the President directs, that
it anything has takea place which could afford
even a colorable pretext for -p-iltieg forth, the
Alilfaunt inAA tn or if anr uvn nrnnAdi-
tion as it therein mentioned has been offered ort
rntertalJ, &c, that I should communicate to
the Department of War all that I know, and
ailtti.it I can ascertain in relation to the whole
Were I alone personal!, concerned, 1 should
not have a raeeseat's hesitation, in making
known whatever may have come within my
knowledge connected at any time with the pub
lic service; but it seems to me, without wish
ing ta be understood as admitting or denying
the etatements of the anonymous writer of the
article alluded to, that your letter Involves a
very delicate question, in regard to ray duty,
as a subordinate officer. It ia this: whether 1
can with propriety divulge matters which oc
curred in a council of war, of which I was a
member, or expose the opinions of officers, com
municated at such meeting under the implied
obligation of secrecy, which attaches to their
detibrraUens on each occasions.
I a ra at p esent inclined to think that this ob
ligation remains aaiaipaired, .upon tbt subordi
nate ffi.-er, tmtif he is relieved from R by tbe
conseut of the party or parties concerned, or
until be Is required by 1'egal prodess to testify
in relation to tbe matter.
Entertaining tbes opinions, I feel It my duly
most respeciiully-to decline answering the
questions propounded in'your letter, andj rt-
uest that my objections may be laid before
the President fr bis consideration. Should he,
after .considering them, still insist iinn a fujl
answer, I ask leave to be permitted again to
deliberate upon the rdatter, before making up a
final conclusion upon the subject,
I have the boner to remain, . ,
