XaHt&B AMD THE DEMOCRACY.
The opposition press are hurting to their
bosoms th hop that the Democratic party
w.il go to pieces or divide on tbe Kansas ques
tion. The Black Republicans are already be
ginning to renew their shrieks because tbe sis ve
ry clause taste and not the entire Constitution,
was submitted by the Convention to a vote of
the people. There can be little force in their
shrieks on tb s point, for the reason that they
had predetermined not to go to the polls not
to vote one way or the other, even if the entire
Constitution had been submitted. We have
always beid that it was the province of the
Convection todetermint tbisqnesticn, believing
it to be the doty of Congress to receive the Con
stitution whether submitted to the people cr
not The Convention was legally railed, le
gally elected and have transacted tbeir busi
ness in strict conformity to law, aud although
many may have thought with as, that it was
the best policy to submit their work to tbe ap
proval or disapproval of the people, yet we
have never imagined that their failare to do so
should cause them to be spumed by Congress,
or that this fact should be made a wedge with
which to divide the Democratic party.
Toe only aj-iesioo that bis given rise te dis
sensions they hsve submitted. We mesa the
slavery question the fwrafts vrxata. TTpca
this the whole people of the Territory hsve an
sportu:dly of voting, snd if the free-State
party fail to vote ii dawc, we maintain that
they have no good ground U stk the rejection
of the entire ConsUtation by Congress. The
Black Republican are well oaderstooi on this
subject. It is tbeir purpose to keep the qaes
tion open in order SB snake it available in the
Presidential canvass of 16J. The welfare
not only of Kansas itself, but of the Union, de
mands an early a iiBABOieut of the diftcalty by
Congress. It is within tbe rower of that bo'j
to put an end to it at once by accepting the
Constitution, ox it may keep it open indefiuitt
ly by rej.-ting it. We hope snd believe no
good Democrat will be found acti'if. with the
Black Republicans in their diabolical effort te
keep the question

Mr. Rowles proposed o amend, by inserting
appropriately the word " knowingly," so as to

Mr. Polk said It would destroy the force of
Mr. Frarer mads a general peecb la oppo
sition. Mr. Stanton followed looking to tbe Con
gvatss of the United States for remedy against
the evils of ausll notes of circulation.
Mr. Williams said :
Mr. Speaker, I must begtbs kind indulgence
of tb House, to submit s few remarks on the
very important rubj-ct no under investiga
tion. I nave rtrrc no bill or mv own for to
,ction gf House, not caring to be officious
or prominent in tut matter, and being wilhug
to rely on the very ound judgment of the
many learned and able gentlunea whose opin
ions accord with my own. I may, psibans,
sugest an amendment or two to some of tbe
provisions of tbe various bill befare us. Tbe
currency of eTery country is the great vital
moving power that gives life and momentum te
every department of its governmental and so
cial policv, and whatever deranges ibat ear
rency, is felt by all its relations proportion
ately j to destroy It, ts not only to destroy .the
social relation of a country, but tb govern
ment it.-lf. The agriculturist plows the field
the mariner plow tbe main, because he sees
in that a reward for hi toil tb mechanic
pour out hi at only because he expects to
receive a rem iteration in money. View it ss
we please, sir. money is the greet motive power
that urges mn to action ; tb wheels of gov
ernment would stop to roil, and society would
be reduced to ennf usion w itbout it. Commerce
coald not subsirt without some great medium
So obviously necessary is a currency to the
convenience .d comfort of man, that we find
from the remotest ages of antiquity it was
known and aed. It ia likwis, known to alt
nation, from th barbarous African, to an
lightened rbritaindora, and by all it seem to
Se taritarnly agreed, that that currency shoald
r ronstitnteu of silver and ganl. By interna
tional comity, the particular coiu of one coun
try recogniz-d in another, and henceSt impor
tance as a commercial agent ts immensely msg-
idfied. Then, if a currency is ne -essary, (and
loiig usage, teaches that it is) it is just as ne
cessnry tfeat ft should be uniform and not sub
ject to i lder and violent fluctuations, Ft i Im
port ant not only that it should be good to day,
but in a't times to com. For severs! thousand
years the prerioa metal was ita own represen
tatae. saw while that w a o, although nations
wre swept away, and dynasties annihilated,
no fluctuation, no panic or pressure was known,
but for tbe last two or three eenrarirs the in
genuity of man his been cntinal!y exerted to
find some substitute for metalftc currency, si
lodging that there was not enough of the pre
vious metsls to supply the increasing wants of
tb commercial world, and bene, we have been
cursed by fluctuations, contraction and revul
sions, occasioned by the system of banking,
wbirh blight not only tbe prosperity of oar
own country, but of every country where banks
are know n. The system was founded on two
great fundamental absurdities. One, that there
was not gold and silver enough to supply com
mercial srants; and another still greater ab
surdity, that psper money, or rather bills of
credit, cocld be mad a valuable and reliable
substitute for metal ic currency.
To refute the former, we need only to look
at the thousand of millions of gold and silver
Hosting through tbe commercial world the
golden strand of California and Australia, and
the gold SEwddtd hills of South America. The
greatest danger ia of there being too m-ich,
which might depreciate ita value. But that
paper issues or bills of credit cannot be made a
reliable substitute, ! a truth demonstrated eve
rywhere where it is in use. Tbe colonies tried
it during their revolutionary struggle, but it
rolled back over them an overwhelming tid- of
ruin, more disastrous than the British arms.
The United States Bank tried it on two oca
sions. but the magnitude of its failures were
oaly equaled by the s' surdity of its preten
sions. Mississippi trid it. and the sequel
proved ber fatal errors, like vampires, the
banks fastened on her vitals, they devoured ber,
white tbe arm of legislation was paralized b
vese.j right, and could not come to the people's
relief, but all was dependent on the caprices
of th banks, which brought a convulsion ss
terrible ast wa irremediable upon her tinsvis
pecting people. The banks had promised to
pay millions, and could not pay at all, they fell
and the honest man who had trusted them fell
the general crash. Tennessee ban
id many are the aid fruits of that
ind dismay se's in like a deep night
Her manufacturing establishments
are cloning which leaves thousands or her citi
zen no' only out of etnploi mut, but tb little
they have acquired is w.-r t- or ruinously
depreciated. But, not only is Tennesses con
Milsed, but every S.ste vrh.Te banking is tole
rated. I now. Mr. Speakr, will assert the uncon
'rovertible fact, that there cannot be a single
instance named of a monetary pardc or pres
sure that bss not had it csnse In tbe banking
system. G back to the year 1- lt. and there
you find bankruptcy spreading misery through
the country; In li.'7, the sad picture i
presented to our view- 177-8 is only a daguer
reotype o.. a larger scale, wbila 1857 promises
to e-.lipse Ibem all in a grander tide of nun.
Sow, air, these are tbe points of tbe banking
system. Shall we profit by the lesson? Will
we obey these sad and awf il warnings, or shall
we go on still blindly in tb career that has so
sftsn led us to tbe verge cf ruin ?
But let me ask of the friends of the bank (if
there be any ks this House) what relief have
the basks ever bremgbt to the country. Did
tbey bring relief in 1837? D they bring relief
now ? No, sir, but they are to-day asking the
Legislature to relieve them. Relieve them, sir,
from whit I Why. sir, from thrpainiand pen
alties of the laws they have violated, and from
the ruin and bankruptcy they have brought 00
Then, sir, if the banks bring no relief in times
of pressure, of what use are they to the coun
try? What use have we for them when time
are flourishing snd prosperous? But these are
not tbe only evils they inflict, tbey not only
bring no relief to the country, but they drive out
the metallic currency, so that when a pressure
doe come, and the banks fail, the people are
left destitute of all carrncv.
Why, r, is the Msjte of Arkansas to-day
free and eas) in ber finances? Why do we
not there hear of bankiuptcies and failures
with ber citizen? It is stmply, sir, because
'heir State Copstitutjan protilitts banking.

see, I beg leave to read an extract fr m his
public statement recently made, setting forth
the necessity for suspension of specie pay
ments by that intinion.
Mr. P. then read from ibe statement of the
President of tbe Bank of Tennessee to the
General Assemblv, aa follows:
" They learned on yesterday morning, that
not orly the bunk of New York and New Or
leans had suspended, but that the leading hank
in New England am) several of the Sonthrn
States hid done so likewise, which will proba
bly lead to a general suspebsiou of the baidvs

How and when they are tc be paid cannot now

bank would not have had t V leaal difficulty in
meting any demind against it, a heretofore
stated In a letter address-.! to the citizen aad
business men of Nashville.''
Mr. Williams. Thus much for the causes
and necessities of suspension. It now remains
for me to make some .jj.'sstinns ai to what
shield be done with the Bank of Trams a. I
hsve on all occasions sdvoeate.1 gradual Mtrui-
dtiow, and in this position I am msUlnetl by
mo of the Goveruoi of Tennessee, together i
with tbe rVeideiit and Botr I of Directors of
with tbe rVesident and Board of Directors of
tbe bank itself ; anH, a their logu: la more
powerful than mine, I arise it. In tlielx report
two years ago, they say :
" Tbe crestion of so many ner banks st th"

and as the Legislature cannot now recall th'
charters granted to others, lh Directors have
came to the conclusion, with great unanimity,
snd from a settled conviction, that the beat in
terests of th S'a'e require it, that the Baek of
Tennessee should be put in liquidation, and its
concern closed at as early a rriod as tbe con
venience of the citizens will allow."'
And in their report to thi. L-gislatur they I
" The Presi.ient and D rectors still entertBir
the opinion communicated to tbe General As
serably in their former report, and do not doiibt .
that the true interests of the Sate hereafter

companies, a' as early a period aa the fineness
of the S a'e will admit it, without auiei;sri

To their views, I giverm entire concurrenc.
and will lend my aid lo carry out their ri;j-i-
tion. Like them. I favor gradual liqui ta'ieo, .

I giving; namerous illuairations. In every State
where the circul-itii g medium was gold, expan

I was no defficulty about exchange.
Mr. Polk proposed the folloaring in lieu of

shall be gailty of a misdemeanor, and upon

Mr. Bulloch brtefiy stated the object of his

come to my k'iovcl-dge, Uiat aioce tbe iuiiiatu
ration of this free bsnkirg system, it has been
the peaetics of those banks, instead of dts
countir.g pa per as -aaaks usually do, to place
'heir amaii not into the bauds of ageata and
send theoa abroad a distant r.srta nf th. ftata
pom East i an ease a to West Tenne, and
to peddle off brir traeh, sr.d eollect tbe notes
of the Bank of Tennessee, the Planters' Bank
iUli the t'nin Bank, and all other stock banks
in respectable stacding instead of liscounting
paper, tbey are gitberinr up the notes of o hr
hanks, and pressing them for the specie run-
king thm for tbe gold. That this ha been the
prat t e of these banks, I do not amtartain a
solitary doubt. Instead of bankinar,tay nat
become mere peJdlers aid trafficera hi emll
no'es in order to collect the no"es of othei
banks, and make rnn. upo th-ai. Mr. U.
gave sundry illustrations, aad ad led, I desire
l he si to do a legitimate buaioes of Milking
not to art themselves to work to force legiti
mate hank to curl lil tbeir business. It is a
violation of the eondi'iotis of the law onder
aj,,, oank. The lawilesiirned that tbey
shHild hank by tii legitimate mean of di-
countnag notes and bills according to the usage
aaai custom of other banks. It was not the
assign of tbs law, that tbey should use their
power for tbe rurnose of making run for
npteit, and producing embarrasuieuts in the
operation of other banks of the State, to the
embarrassment of 'he bustaeaa of the great

By the la'e arrival from California we have
apparently full ronfirmation of 'be massacre of
an emigrant train of oris hundred persons ob

of tbe Mormons. The .ill i California, of
San Francisco, publishes a long letter, from
which the following are extracts i

held in this ritv last week, ua ler the circus pa
vilion, at which eecbes were made by several
who bad been at Salt Lake, and reiolutiona
were passed which, 1 believe, express the sen

is a sentiment ot ex'ermination, living and in
tsnse, growing in the minds of all 'rue Ameri
cans, against tb traitor who have planted
tbrmjelvea in our territory, arii who have in
s igated the savages of tbe desert to slaughter
