MR. ?oi-roa,--You see bty the papers
what tne Legislature has done. The Bank
question absorbed almost every thing. else.
The opposition is triumphama-ihe days
ot the flank are numbered. The die
enssio)n has. been conduacte.! with great
ability. .Mr. Memminger's reputntion as
a skilful dehater has long been very high,
but he has added largely to it. His speech
was the miosi masterly efor:t of the See
siuan,.anld before hit'power the Bank !tas
fallen.. The giation is a very complicated
one, but be untwisted all the threads.' He
never culs a. knot, but always unties it.
With powers of analysis suffici u orusp
alny subtject, hie has a wvonderf.ti clearniess
of percepiion, and. a. ready commhud of
languago which tire s'ire to protect him
against all, misconception. . Never have I
-met a clearer-headed mnae. -Eveyy one
knows whet lie is at; there is-n'o dodging.
