Notes of the Knoxville Branch.-The
Charleston Courier says, "the subjoined
letter from the President of the Knoxville
Branch of the S. W. R. R. Bank, will
shew that the notes of that Branch have
been very improperly permitted to fall be
low par; and will serve additionally to
confirm our position that theircredit ought
to be supported by the mother bank in
Charleston. Not only has the Knoxville
Branch never suspended specie payments,
but its notes are receivable in payment of
public dues at the treasuries of South Car

by the Georgia Banks and City Corpora
tions!-I observe that nearly all the change
in circulationgin this part of the State, is
Georgia Rail Road, and City Council of
Augusta, with other shinplasters equally
worthless. The two first named are upon
an equality, both being at a discount of 12
to 15 per cent., in Augusta, I have been
--idfoimed-.m gooauthori4y. that the City
Council of Augusta, when the amount of
five dollars of their bills is presented, re
deem their pledge to the public, by offer
ing in exchange Rail Road, or other de
preciated currency. Every family that has
to buy a leg of mutton or a pound of but
ter, is interested in getting rid of sucir
trash; and much more are public officers
concerned, who, for a dollars worth of ser
vices, receive but 85 cents. Such a state
of things should not be tolerated one mo
ment longer. The Dank of Hamburg will
take pleasure in furnishing the country with
specie change, if the people will ask them
for it. Send home the shinplasters of Geor

I will guarajpty that it will be a saving of
twenty-five per cent., on the entire amount
of, change necessary for the wants of the

An advertisement appears in the Balti
more American of Tuesday offering on the
part of the Frederick County Bank at
Frederick, Md., a reward of ten thousand
dollars for the apprehension of certain
thieves who some timse between Saturday
evening and Monday mnorning entered the
Banking house by means of false keys and
carried off specie, notes and other valua
bles to the amount of one hundred and
eighty $tie thousand dollars. T he Mary
land Banks, however, know. boy. tu man
*age' these things. The specie ($10,000)
could not be of much use to a suspended
Bank. Its own notes (3135,000) are no
loss as the Bank does not intend to redeem
thenm-besides, these notes will be put in
circulation and "relieve the people." Ma
licious persons, in these days of bank de
faleation, may be inclined to doubt wheth
er this advertisement of robbery may not
- be a new way found out of balancing in
convenient items in the ledger-if so we
recommend it to the United States Bank.

Bank Case.-We copy the following
from the Pennsylvanian:
' The suit of Kuhn vs. the Bank of the
United States was tried yosterday before
Judge Stroud in the District Court. The
plaintiffclaimed the amount of a deposite
with twelve per cent. interest from the
time of its demand and failure of payment
" The question involved was, whether
the Bank by making an entry in a deposi
tor's Book that a deposit is to be paid in cur
rent bank notes, current bank funds, or
any entry of a similar kind, can avoid its
liability to pay in specie. Judge Stroud
decided that the Bank had no right to re
ceive deposites to be paid otherwise than
in specie, and that such conditions annex
ed were void; he therefore directed the
jury to find for the plaintiff, with 12 per
cent. interest from the time that specie was
demanded and refused.

OF SPARTANBURG DISTRICT.
T HE Subsciiber having rented this Esta

celebiated watering place yields to none in the
Southern States for attractions which should
induce those travelling for health or pleasureto
make it their resort. rhe accomodations are
ample for 300 visitors-familiescan have suites
ofrooms in the great-Hotel, or houses with par
lours, or single or double cabins, all of which
are complete and most comfortably finished and
furnished. The table and bar will be supplied
with the best the country affords, and no pains
shall be spared to give satisfaction to the com
At the Springs is an agreeable and cultivated
society of permanent residents. Two excellent
academies, male and female, where visitors may
put their children to school.
In the Hotelare large and well arranged pub
lic rooms, a band of music attends for those dis
posed to dance. The bar will be well sup.
plied, and abundance of ice has been stored up
for the season.
These Springs are situated 25 miles from
Union Court House; 20.amiles from Spartan.
burg, 25 miles from Yorkville, 25 miles from
Glenn Springs, and 22 from Wilsons White
Sulpher rings, being the central point to
them all. The waters of the Spring are lime

and are as light, pure and delightful to the taste
as water can be. They possess decided medi.

and liver affections. There are besides the
limestone, too strong chalybeate springs ofequal
efficacy in restoring strength in case of debility.
Baths, cold and warm and shower, shall be
always ready at a moments notice.
The locality is one of the most healthful in
the world. The country around it possesses
many attractions in its beautiful scea.ery, its his
torical associations, and in the manufactures
which are springing up all around it. The bat

mountain are all near enough for a pleasant
daysexcursion-and the prospect from Gelkin
mountain takes in a large part of four districts,
and embracesmany views ofhighlypicteresque
and beautiful scenery.
Since the last Summer, the roads leading to
these Springs have been put in order, and the
bridges repaired and replaced. A new bridge
has been built at the Nesbit Iron Works over
the Broad River, and no difficulty now exists
for travellers-a line ofstages runs twices week
from Spartanburg by these Sr rings to Lincoln

House, and a horse mail to Yorkville.
There is always on hand a supply of burnt
lime of the best quality.
