SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 1838.
VTo OTJR SUBSCRIBERS. A lonor and
winter is approaching, during which wo, like
yourselves shall need the comforts of life. The
boys cannot pick up the nimble type, unless
their fingers are supplied with the proper ge
nial warmth; the pressman cannot pull off the
sheet upon hit ponderous machine unless his
stomach is fortified with the portion of eata
bles and drinkables that go to make this wea
ry world bearable: the editor cannot spin out
bis columns of news and informatiua with hun
ger and care gnawing at his Vitals and drying
up his brain. We must be fed, warmed and
clothed, and to do that we must receive our
dues. We have forborne to dun, because we
wished not to drive our friends in seasons of
trouble and scarcity; but those seasons hare
now in measure passed by. The'harvesis of
this year have given many the ability to pay
without difficulty, which tbey could not have
done before. And now, it is no more than just
that we should receive the pay for our labor
and our pains. Oar expenses have been paid
from our means until they have been exhaust
ed, and we must now receive our dues to sup
ply their place. Our wants are the same as
yours and we supply them in the same manner,
We will take, on accounts everything that
can be eaten by man or beast we want wood,
and from those who have nothing else, we
want labor. Shall we have onr pay t
Bank - Rbform. Tho Ohio Statesman
the central organ of the Locofoco party in this
state, gives the members of that party to un
dsrstand that they ate expected to oppose the
passage of a "peneral Banking Law.' It is
evident from the remarks of the Statesman,
that the cry of " bank reform" raised by the
Locofocos, previous to the election did not con
template llie enactment or any law, Dy me leg
stature then to be elected, which should throw
open the business of banking tn a general com
petition. In fact, the ; Statesman, fines the
election, expressly tells us that the "bank re
form" measures are to be applied to the insti
tutions now iii existence. This application
can only be made by: Repealing the charters
of the banks, or by a searching investigation
into their affairs.
The repeal of the charters, cn hardly be
called "bank reform,", but rather " bank aboli
tion," neither will the party in power dare to
undertake such a measure without supplying
the place of such abolished institutions. The
Locofocos know but too well that the destruc
tion of banking in Ohio would involve the ruin
of the commercial and agricultural interests of
the state, which in their fall would bury their
own party boneath the ruins.
Should they repeal the charters, their oppo
sition to both chartered, monopolies and to a
General Banking Law' would prevent the
creation of new banks tp supply the places of
the old ones, and they would be placed in a
dilemma from which they have taken away
their own means of escape.
Neither can searching investigation into
the affairs of the present banks be properly
termed a " bank reform." The Legislature of
last year did make such an investigation, and
no one has giren that body the title of bank
reformers. That investigation did prove that
the banks in Ohio (one Locofoco bank except
td) were perfectly sound and solvcnt,and need
ed ouly to be let alono to meet all their en
gagement. Any subsequent search will only
.find the same banks still better fortified and
prepared and in a situation to preclude all fur
ther legislation upon them. They are paying
specie, tnd fulfilling tho ends for which they
were created and what more can even bank
reformers tsk of them? Will they purge the
officers under oathl That was done last win
er. ,Will they examine the books? They al
ready accuse the book keepers of making false
entries, and how can thsy believe either them
or the books. Will they s?arch the state with
a lighted candle and count tfce extent of the
bank circulation? Let us see them do if.
Alt this is not "bank reform." When
bank forfeits its clmrter .that charter .may be
annulled, whents conduct 3 suspicious it has
always been subject to Legislative Investiga
tion. -These are provisions that have .ever
seen in existence, and now tbeXiocotocos ai.
.talking about making them as if the? had nev
r before been thought of. And this, we are
told by tha Statesman is all that is meant by
the shout of "Bank Reform" that has been
sounded so loudly in our ears for so long a
time. ; . . , .. , ..t ,.. , , ,
" fieoUemen the people will not swallow this.
Tim think there are gullible, and so they have
sometimes oroved themselves to be, but their
eyes are open now, and they are not to be fob
ned off with a shadow without a substance.
Do something you mus thousands of Ar

meats. ' You cannot stem the current of bank
reform; resist t you may, but remember that

' Thb EtBCTioii. How little are the results
popular elections tha indices of Bound and
re'J informed public sentiment! How faw there
are of all those who vote, that are governed
ii t'teir selection, of candidates by a pure spi
rit of patriotism, and how much fewer whs
give their votes for' or against any particular
one of the issues that are se pompously made
dp by the papers for their considerations A
drunken Irishman is dragged up to the polls,
Between two respecluble office holders, on the
election of, perhaps, a eonslabUu Hurra for
Jackson ! I vote for Pat Jackson, because he is
an Iiishman." This brute's vote is duly chron
iW es tht suffrage of the" free, unbought
elector," in favor of the Sub Treasury. " Hur
ra for de French and de Whig," "screams a
Frenchman in Detreit, staggering under the
weight of a full cargo of rusty park and stale
beer, distributed free gratis, for nothing, by the
patriotic whig committee, "lgoforde whig;
dey protect the Catholic," Here is a victory
"over office holders and governmental corrup
tion" the proper subject fsr a hurra, and a
glorification. One votes for a candidate be
cause he is an abolitionist, another because he
is k bank man, a third becauso he is a smart
man, a fourth because he is indebted to him,
and dare not do otherwise, a fifth because he
hates the other candidate, and so on, and all
these go for glory and reform, and furnish ma
terials for All Hail's," One Hundred Guns,"
and whole columns of high sounding rig ma
rule and trash, ending in smoke and signifying
Trabb or thb Maombb. With the expe
rience of the present season before him, who
can doubt but that much of the trade or Chica
go and the ports upon Luke Michigan, which
now goes around by way of the lakes, will on
the completion of the Wabash and Erie and the
Indiana and Lake Michigan canals take a route
through those channels to their port of destina
tion, in preference to their more hazardous and
longer way through the lakes. Lake Erie,
with its fine harbors and well known navigation
has proved itself sufficiently dangerous for
fall business, and the upper lakes must be, by
this time abandoned for the season, while there
are still immense quantities of goods to be sent
in that direction.
Revolt in Canada. The patriots are
again in arms, and risings hare taken place
at many points. The leaders are said to be
Theller, Dodge, Nelson, Core, Gagnion and
Hotchkiss. It is reported that St. Johns has
been taken. Marshall law has been proclaim
ed in Montreal. The whole country is in con
sternation. Several skirmishes have taken
place, and prisoners have been taken on both
sides. At La Toru, 7 miles from Laprairie,
Beauharnois, on the river Itichlieu, Caugh
nawaga and several other places, conflicts have
taken place, in some of which the rebels have
succeeded. Mr. Ellice, late private secretary
to Lord Durham has fallen into the hands ot the
patriots. The work has now commenced,
what its termination may be heaven enly
knows. It is a conflict for dear life on the part
of those of tho rebels who have appeared in
arms, and we are satified that it will be fought
XOvr Merchants. We have, without doubt,
the most active, liberal and enterprising class
of merchants, in this place that can be found
in the whole West. Look at our advertising
columns they display an amount and variety
of articles worthy of any town west of the
mountains. Take a look at their stores they
are full from the floor t the ceiling with the
products of every land, Spleidid stocks of
goods display their means and the scale upon
which they do their business; the way they
patronize the printer is evidence of their en
terprize ond their liberality; and we can say
with certainty that if the presence of real, solid
capital, and tho residence of men of enterprise
and judgment can do ought for the growth of
a city, ours is in a fair way of being built up.
We are inclined to think tkat the events of this
season will do away with the silly idea, that
sail vessels are more safe than steamboats for
lake navigation, and we rather think the insu
rance offices will discover the difference if the
vessel owners do not.

stated that the collection of the revenue in spe
cie, as ultimately intended under the sub-Treasury
system, would require, in times of pros
perity, the exuetion of $13,003,000 of specie
per annum lor tho custom-house in the single
city of New York. That there had seldom or
never been moro than 3,000,000 at any one
time in all the banks of the city. That upon
a decision of the $80,000,000 of specie in the
Un'ted States among the 16,000,000 inhabi
tants, there would fall to the slinre of each in
dividual the sum of $5, which, again divided
by the 365 days of the year, would give each
person less than ' 2 cents per dav. In the
course of his travels in Europe, Mr. B- sud
he had visited countries where a specie curren
cy and a sub-Treasury prevailed, and where
many laborers get but S cents per day; that
he had hired men in the Neapolitan dominions
tor a Jew xork sixpence per day;' and yet
such was the state to which the Administra
tion had undertaken to reduce the free People
or this Union." '

Landslides The New Orleans Bulletin

has occasioned the caving ot the earth at the

An Important Invention. We observe
that at the exhibition of the Franklin Institute
in Philadelphia, they have samples of flax, In
nine or ten different stages, until it is reduced
to a short staple very much resembling Sea
Island cotton. The object of the inventor is
to adapt this material to the 6nme process of
manufacture as cotton; and by experiment the
plan has been found to work well. Linen thread,
spun on cotton machinery, bears a very good
appearance; and these stages of the difficulty
overcome, there remains none in the weaving
of the cloth. A company is already incorpo
rated by the Pennsylvania Legislature for the
manufacture, and we may soon have linens as
cheap as cotton.
There is very often some danger in noticing
now inventions, as the sanguine expectations
of the inventors, and the iuterestcd represent
ations of those who embark capital, and finally
chouse the original projector out of , all own
nership in the concern, give many contrivances
and inventions a fictitious but short value. We
trust that this ever-rating is not the case with
the discovery just published in the manufacto
ry of flax. The article will become a staple
of the northern and middle States, and be
side the manufactory of piece linen which
will thus be introduced into the country, many
new fabrics, combinations of linen and cotton,
linen and silk, and even of all three, with perhaps
the introduction of wool, will form a new era,
and give us an inexhaustible variety of domes
tic goods. JV. Y. Sun,

. Gbntlbmbn: Having sent you a Quan
tity of my ELIXER OF HEALTH for sale,
and presuming that its virtues are not fully
known in your section of country, I have
deemed it proper to afford you the necessary
information. This is a medicine of my own
advising, under a belief that medicine can on
ly be serviceable as it assists the efforts of na
ture, whose effoits are always exerted to rid
the system of whatever is injurious, and to
maintain a healthy action in those organs
which are the prime regulators of the wholo
system, and this sho would always accomplish,,
except overpowered by some deleterious agent
taken into the system.-; Its action is upon the
stomach, liver, and digestive organs generally:
upon the proper state and action of which, a
healthy condition of the system mainly de
pends. In its operation it removes all obstruc
tions, carries of' all morbid bile, and other, vi
tiated matter, gives tone and energy to all the
digestive powers, and enables each to perform
its proper office; hence it must be perceived
that it is adapted to remove the great variety
ot diseases which proceed from a derangement
of these organs. . The following are some of
the symptoms and diseases incident to these
derangements, and for which the elixir has
proved most signally efficacious: Loss of appe
tite, debility, lassitude or a sense of weariness,
nausea, oppression from food, flatulency, acid
stomach, cardialgy or heart burn, unpleasant
taste in the mouth, pains in the head, back,
side, shoulders or limbs, sick head ache, cos
tiveness or the reverse, dejection, melancholy,,
disturbed sleep, cold hands and'fset, bilious ha
bit,, night sweats, pale tallow countenance, dys
pepsia and liver complaints, be. ' It has pro
ved most signally efficacious in raising the sys
tem from the torpor and general prostration
which ague and fever,, and other mirehi
fevers so frequently produce. For delicate fe
males and children, it is incomparable. - For
coughs originating in the sympathy of the
lungs, with a diseased stomach or liver,. it has
been uniformly efficacious. ' Many persons
supposed to have been in a decline or consump
tion, have been restored by its use, restoring
bloom to the palo and sickly check, and plump
nesB to the meagre. '
From the nature of its operation and effects,,
it was supposed; it might prove a preventive Of'
bilious and other fevers, and as such it has been,
extensively' used" in some of our most sickly
sections with apparent success. Thousands
of families have adopted it as their family me
dicine, and many consider it a Panacea; -They
believe with me, that by a timely and proper
use of the Elixir, that healthful action of tho
system will be kept up, which will effectually
repel all those deleterious agents which causa
fevers and many other diseases. " '
- Since visiting your place and becoming ac
quainted with tho character ol its diseases, 1
am fully satisfied that my Elixer is admirably
adapted to their case, and by a timely use to
their prevention in some measure, and I shall
be much disappointed not to hear, of such . re
sults. Of any bad effects I entertain no fears,
it is entirely botanical, and has been and may
be taken in all ages and both sexes, in every
condition with the happiest results. For fur
particulars and testimonials, see bill on the me
dicine. Hoping that it may prove among you
as great a blessing to the afflicted as it has in
other places. . I am, Gentlemen, yours truly,
