A the instance of an individual claim
ing stock in this institution, an injunction
was granted a shoit time ago having the
effect to close upon the bank, without even
permiting a relemptiot or its notes. The
officers of the bank. upon legal advice, as
sumied the responsibility of disobeying the
injunction until a hearing could be had for
its dissolution. This hearing we under
stand took place before his Honor Judge
Tripj)e. at Chambers, on the 12ih ult.,
when the motion to dissolve was sustained,
upon the ground that there was no equity
iII the lill, and if there was, it was fully
sworn ofT by the answer. At tho same
hearing, another application for iidutcion
hy,another'party, was dismissed upon cause
shewn to the contrary. We learn that the i
bank did not stop redeeming its liabilities
pending the injunction; and being now re
lieved from this legal embarrassment, is go
ing on to discharge promptly as heretofore,
its obligations to the public.

by the following article from the New Or

The war has commenced in earnest
among sundry of our banks.
Early in July, says another rumor, some
bickering was observed at the table of the
board of presidents. One of thei propo
posed a resolution to inquire into the con

examination to all the tbanks, and carried.

On the 16th ofathec past month, Col. Betta
departed this life. Never has this communiy
been called upon to mourn the departure of a
mose valued and respected citizen. Col. Betts
was born in Hlijfax County Virginia. in the
year 1814, and entered the mihatary academy at
West Point. Having acquitted himself with
honor, ss a pupil ofthat inslitutlion, he receaved
the commission of second Lieutenant, and was
atationmed at Fort Moultrie during the Autumn
and winter of '33. After thmel massacre of the
gallant Dade and his unfortumnate companions,
be was ordered to Florida, and during thme
Spring camnpaign he acted as the aid of Eaustis.
At the commencement of the Crack hostilities,
he was selected as ones of the sids of Gen. Scott.
and acted in that capacity, until his return to
|Florida in the ensuing ,idly. He was second

alone for several minutes to the fire of nearly ti
whole of the savage force. Major Pierce A*

to retire, and the arduous duty was devolve
upon Col. Bette of protecting the rear. Thi

Colonel Delts received a severe flesh woun
through the thigh which together with repeate
attacks of fever. occasioned by fatigue and u:
healthiness of the climate, impaired the vigor i
his constitution and uninted him for active set
vice. Incouequence of his feeble health, he
was stationed in Augusta, until the winter o
1838. Being then ordered to the Canada fron
tier, and deeming his enfeebled frame unabled
to stand the rigor of the climate, he resignes
his commission and retired from the service.
Since his residence among ns, he has proven
himself as enpable of excelling in the arts o
peace as of war-no one gave higher promis<
of usefulness and distinction, than he did, and
none was better qualified to attain it. Polished
in his manners, and fascinating ins his address
endowed with uncommon strength of mind anc
