I CoU!TTY Po1TtrcS.--icjamin F.
Perry, Esq. of Greehville, well known as
a gentleman of hight character and talents
and one of the leading membersof our Le
gislature has published in the Mountaineer
an address to the people of Greenville
whichb we have read with great satisfac
tion. Mr. Perry wAs the main support of
Gen. Thompson in that district-favoring
him we believe almost solely on account
of their bei. g both opposed to the Sub
Treasury. lie is still opposed to that
measure, but he is a1lso opposed to a N
tional Bank, to a Tariff, to a System of
Internal Improvements-in short to all
the Federal and Consolidation principles
which he believes would triumph in the
election of Harrison. He therefore will
support Van Buren, and is letter is an
able and sufficient vindication of his deter
mination s. to do. We are glad that Mr.
Perry has relinquished his intention of
leaving the Legislature where his ability,
industry and high charactergave hiujust
ly so distinguished a position. We know
too that he will submit with a manful for
titude to the victory we have gained over
him in the matter of the Sub Trensury; so
we shall not indulge even in a passing re
gret that he has not yet been able to see
through our spectacles. Mr. Perry's Let
ter iill crush the last hope of getting up a
Harrison party to sustain the extraorlina
ry course of their Representative in Con

mong the art of Federalism to catch the
workingmen of the country,iwe lately saw
distinouished honor paid to a vagabond by
the unme of Bear, on whom they bestowed
especial attenti-an. A meeting was held
in this city for the purpose of enabling hint
to hold forth; he was ushered to the mul
titude by Gen. Walter Jones, and mem
hers of Congress. Mr. Bell, Mr. Pope,
and M1r. Briggs, felt themselves honored
in playin! a secondary part to him, and
the performance was heralded ire areal dis
play throtgh the National lotelligencer.
In like manner he was noticed by the
Mayor and the Federal dignitaries an'l na
bob's of Philadelphia; and by the same
class of men in Baltimore. The Rich
mond Enquirer informs us that M r. Bear
is now in companionr-hip with the lion.
Wim. C. Rives, preambulating ie west
ern counties of Virginia. and addressing
the people. When last heard from they
were in Harrison county.
Well, this fellow tuirns out to be one ot
the greatest impostors and swindlers in ex
ibtence! A true Federal Whig Mecian
ic is he! All cheat-worse than humbuC
-a cheat of the people, as he is used as
an instrument to deceive and cheat the
FACT AGANST THEORY.
To iliose who incline to think, that a
National Bank would or could have pre
vented the evils with which the country is
now afflicted, we commend the followin,
brief ext ract.-Constitutionalist.
From the National Jntelligcncer, 1th Srpt. ISIe
"Stocks are down, down, w hile the
rules of Exchange are advancin2 at a ra
pid and unprecedented rate. The CUR.
RENCY isin confusion-ruin and bank
ruptcy meet us on evety ha-id. The dh .
mestic exchanges nev-er were n orse, atid
scarce iever can he. The Southern hills
are almost worthless at the North, and the
West is in nearly as bad a situttio.
What is to be done, we know not. The
(?UNTrED STATES BANKE)
can afrord us no relief, if even it shall be
ableto statd itself."
Thus spoke the National Intelligencer
in 1818, publtshted in Washington City,
attd edited by the sate men as row. fed -
eralists then, now modern wvhigs; but tien.
.lackson was nor President, itor- Mr. Vant
Buren. The fetderalists had not then leartn

the whole Union to the LIcemocratic Men

From the Ofld Dominion.
TuE BANKRUPT LaAw.-One of the
htapp~iest events, so far ats the welfare of
the great mass of the people is concerned,
whicl: have lately transpired, iq the defeat
ofthte misnatmed Bankrupt Bill in the
House of Representatives, by haying it ott
the table. This wvas done at the itnstance
of the Hion. Francis WV. Pickens, of South
Carolina, whto made the mnotior; he de
serves the everlasting graititude of a free
people for the noble deed. They will
not soon forger the weight of obligation
which this act has laid them tinder to this
urnshrinking champion of thberr inalienable
Had this bill been in accordlance with
the true principles of political justice and
equality, most gladlly should we have
haile'd its suaccessful passae :hrough both
Housesof Coneress; but so far from thtis
being the fact, it was pariial. unequial, un
just to bo0th debtor and credlitor; it was in
tended to benefit only a privileged few, and
those few the least valuable portion of so
ciety-the tupstart dandy speculator. who
has rushed into the fiery furntaco of fash
jonable robbery, andi who were in wvant of
a cloak to screen their career of respect able
villany from the eyes of the world. The
honest. hardhanded produceer could receive
no benefit from ibis law, however poverty
stricken he might become-the drones,
those worthless excrescences upon our
social system. would alone receive its pro
tection, and share its benefits.
In the coutrse of the debate in the Sen
ate upon this questiotn, Gov. Lumpkin
made a most excellent speech agaitnst its
odions provisions, and concluded in the fol
lowing forcible language:
"Mr. President, the system and subject
of credit hasof late become an interesting
theme with politicians. I have often, sir,
hteard the present Adinitstration of the
General Governmtet denounced for de
stroying~ the credit system. 'ro ite, sir,
this is all idle-perfectly fallamcionts. My
views of a sounid and salutary credit lcett
me to fear nothing, ask for nothine. from
the Governetnt, in the way of credit.
Whbat has this Government to (It with the
credit of intdividluals? The only trite basis
oif credit is industry, economy, puncluality,
"The moat who earns and receives
more than he spends-who contracts no
tiuraona debtr..-who mnnnes all bsie
alThirs with prudence and discretion-is
but rarely the subject of Providential suf
fering andl distress-and when such cases
do occur, the moral sense of the communi
ty will protect such a one from the avari
cious oppression of an unfeeling creditor.
Sir, I have always had more credir than
motney. I have never hal one noment's
distrers for fear my credit would fail. The
credit of individuals and government
can onIly be sustained by the true dignity
of living within the means at command.
It is not in the power of individuals, or
G..vernnent, to sustain credit by laws of
bankruptcy, or by substituaing any kind
of fiction for reality. Honesty, sir, is not
only the hest policy, but it is a moral
duty. We should advise the people to
work tnore, and spend less. to pay their
old debts, and be cautious how they con
tract new ones. The course sutgrested
will banish distress, and bring prosperity
to our b loved country, without the aid 01

Our situation here is very peculiar.
and, i may add, alarmine. You are no
doubt aware, that all we Eniglish are now
put out ofthe paleof the Chinese laws, and
that the sacred Emperor has issued orders
to have us driven ott of China. The Man

From the Charleston Acrcury, July 20.
Well! the Banks of Charleston resume
specie paymentls TO-DAr. There was we
believe ao contsultaiion among them. The
Batk ol Charleston it is understood. gave
a hint that such a course was desirable,
and fortified it with some exeellent reasons
that l.aptened to be on hand. But the ten
dency of the timtes has always been that
way. The general sentimeti of the peo
ple, the resolute course of the Bank of
Charleston fromn the first, and finally the
passage of the Itidependent Treasury Act.
were all strong' argunents. The forced
pruideiie of the suspended Banks from the
time of the susp'en -iin. the absence for the
the season of all feverish speculation in
cotton and the geat exertions of all men
to contract their liabilities, have left the
banks, the currency and the c)mmunity
in a state in which isumption will pro
duce no shock to any. The movement
was rather sidden and unexpected; the
dealers in specie and exchinge may there
fore have made some losing bargains, but
that is one of their risks. We have again
theti a currency redeemable in gold and
silver. At least the only exception to it
is the issue of "notes receivalle" by the
Rail Road Company, put oitt some weeks
since to "relieve the ciomunity" of the
burden of its somall change. As we are
all in n state of relief at Present, we hope
the aracious trifles of the R. R. Company
will be withdrawn.
It is not probahle that this movement
of the banks will have any perceptible
effect upon the ciretlation. Its effect upl,
