RIOT AND MURDER. j
"We fiiuJ in tlio Franklin Messenger llie
following account of llio lulu bloody riot
among tha laborers on ttiu Uuatiharnois Ca
nal in Canada. It is a fearful lain of wrong,
resistance, anil revengeful lioniiciJo under
tlitj pari) of preservation of llio public peace.
Tliesu Dtil'isli authorities am fast pelting till
over tbu world, to imagine that any resistaiico
or even murmurs against thorn, amount to a
crime which blood alone can expiate. Tiicro
is an infernal ferocity in the English inoilu of
tpielling a riot which may some day, when
opportunity odors, bring afier it a terrible re
tiibtilion. For 11 week past to havo received various
accounts of most serious disturb. inccs mining
the laborers (principally Irish) on tlm Roan
Iniriiuis Canal in Canada. The Montreal
Messenger gives a detailed account of tho
cinsos ami progress of tho riot. It is said
that thu laborera who were receiving lis. 6d.
per day, demanded 3. On Saturday, the
lOlh, one of thu contractors named McDon
nell, was formorly ordered by the rioters to
raiso the wages or give up bis office, under
penally of death. Tho next night, another
rontrrirlor named Lllint, was cruelly beaten
in his bed. On the forenoon of Monday, a

The writer mentioned auove, quo-anfj a inner
from nnn nf niir WashillLrton corrCDIHindcnt.
saya that the Now York Btpresfl has boon for
ceil recently to acknowledge his cm nentability
and success in tho following terms :
"Whatever ihlTeronccs of political opinion
may exist In relation to Mr. Spencer, his buij.
iio.' talents conimano me coiiuuenco w
public, and ho seems ilelcrinined to carry out
the reforms required in tho Treasury Depart
ment."
Without alluding to the fact lli.it tho quota
tion from our correspondence does not justify
tho Inference drawn bv Iho writer, it is sufli-
cient to remark lliat Mr. Spencer has not as yet
done any thing tnnro than determined carry
out his reforms. Ho has only caused hi organs
to herald what h( will do. Hut the public will
not ho satis lied with promises. They xvisli to
know why tho cxtraviijatit expenditures in tho
collection' of the revenue are confined. They
will demand, where is tho reform in tho reduc
lion of the number of officers in tho Itevenuo
Department, In the expenses of the Light
House system, the Revenue Cutters and the
Revenue llnats, and what reform has taken
place in the Land Offices, as well as in sundry
other matters over which Mr. Spencer has, or
ought lo have, supervision.

ANECDOTES OF THE PROGRESS.
Tho city is full of rich rumors of inci
dents in the President's progress. A capi
tal one is told of tho Fancuiniall dinner.
Mr. Upshur, our readers are aware, there
mado a very neat speech in reply to the
toast from Mr. Bancroft
I'l'rgi'nta nn J Mitsachuitlts. Their, names arc
blended inseparntely in the record of I heir country's
glorv their Bona will ever cbelisli tin) ficiduui and
the Union established by their lathers.
When Mr. Upshur catno to that part of
Ins reply,
In lonkir.g back to tho events of the Revolution,
who is there that can senaralo Virginia from Mnfsa.

Willi this noble Uommonwcalili 7
Somo one cried out audibly, 'John C.

part ol llio table where the inlerlootor was,
so forcibly did bis manner seem to describe
the mischief-inaking character of Mr. Spen

Mr. Johnson also at Hunker Hill, and the nest elev

He entered as a volunteer under Col. Putnam, and

Mccreary Porter, while soup was 6crvcd, asked a wai
ter tobringlnma rucco of mutlnn, Tho waiter re.
spcctfully informed him that untill the siirnal for re.
moving the covers was made, bn was not at liberty to
carve the meats : wherennon Mr. Poricr renenteil hi-
demand, which not being complied wilb,he left the table J
t.i iiU't, n.aii. ui.u i..uii;iiailoil. ,
In tho evening, ono of tho commitlco of recention.
talking with Mr. Porter, politely suggcsled that He
nopea every itung nan Been conuuetcu to his satislnc
lion, !q which ho replied "A'e, Sir." Now, it is not
purptising umi n man oi vulgar laniuy, wuii no nrcea
ing, and suddenly elevated to a position which brings
him in contract with polished society, should be some
what surprised to find manners dillering from those
of a Pennsylvania oyster cellar; but it is rather sin-,
gular Ihat such a man should not have at least dis
cretion enough to govern himself by the conduct of
those around him, and imitate tho nianncrsofa gen
slstnan as far as bis previously formed linbi's would
allow, even if he had nono of ibe feelings of a gentle
man. Tho American relates tho following anec
dote of the President and his keepers, while
in this city :
Of the people propcT the men who live by honest
industry whether mechanics, merchants, r.r profes
sional men, the President saw nothing or next to
nothing; for even, if more disposed than they were to
pay formal respect to the functionary, it was diffi
cult and the attempt was discusiitiL' to break tnrough
the unclean circle m which ho stooil a prisoner at
large. He was literally, guarded o rue, ns the French
say, or keep under constant surveillance by one sec
lion or another of interested worshippers, The strife
indeed, between these for the possession of the Presi
dent's persons was sometimes ludicrous,
'or instanccun one occasion, when the great man
was to go to some sarden or theatre, tho .Mayor and
the President of the Committee, who had hi en for
some time uneasy nt seeing him quietly seated una
sofa between the Postmaster and olleclor arcades

THE CURRENCY.
Tho propensity to falsehood and senseless
clamor on tho subject of a United States
Dank has become such a chronic mnladv
with universal Locofocoism, flint all hope of
cure is now abandoned. Tho seeds of
this baleful diseaso wero sown by the vin
dictive ferocity of Old Hickory who, failing
after much effort, to make the Dank an in
strument in his hands for political manoeu
vring, turned up on it the wholo power of
of tho Government palrongp, nnd the nopu
Ianly of the battle of New Orleans, and then
denounced it as subversive of liberiv, be
cause it endeavored to save itself. From
that time to this it has been deemed a car
dinal point in tho " democratic " compass.
that, not merely tho old U. S. Dank, but
any National Dank is and must bo a corrupt
and wicked concern ; and tho worthies who
claim to be tho lineal descendants of tho De
mocracy of 1815, at the command of Gen,
Jackson, turn up their noses in " divino dis
gust " at tho barn mention of an Institution
which was begotten by iho " war demnrri'ls"
and christened by President Madison himself.
Now, the consistency of these gentli'meii
is certainly their own hunt, and it must be
allowed that it will not do for them to be
stopping to recur lo the maxims of llio fathers
of the ' Dcinocralie Church," because in
that case tho leaders of this day would soon
bo out of sight in their endless tergiversa
tions and continual shiftings of. ground, but
U strikes us that a little less b'vling about
tho identity of Locofocoism and ancient de
mocracy, would look Quite ns well in these
precious demagogues, unless they can afford
to pay somo regard to the opinions of their
political ancestry upon this most important
financial question.
The truth is, and every body knows it, if
tho President of the U. S. Branch Dank at
al Portsmouth had been removed, .and Jack
son's man appointed accordingto orders, we
never should have heaid t)f llie wickedness
and unconstitutionality- of tho Dank. All
would have been well, and ground down be
neath the iron heel of Old Hickory, and the
influence of tho Dank, the Country would
havo been iu fact-if not in name, converted
from a Republic to a Despotism. Tho old
Dank deserves great crcilit for tho boldness
with which it withstood the corrunt offers of
Jacksonism, but the question has no refe
rence tn that institution. It is not, was llio
old Dank right I but is a Dank necessary nnd
expedient t That question is invariably
met with a mingled roar of adulation to Jack
son nnd curses upon tho old U. S. Dank
without the pretence of argument, or an at
tempt at the uso of nny other weapons than
the inveterate prejudice ngainst nil National
Dunks, which has grown out of tho old
grudge. That the policy which has been in
successful operation for forty out of tho fifty
four years that our Government has stood
will eventually bo Iho one resorted lo for the
restoration of the currency and prosperity of
tho country, as veil as iho safely of tho pub
