Banks" and Banhlns Democratic
The Union and American of Saturday deliver
itself of a column of words in response to re
marks of the Patriot on the subject of Banks
and the policy of the democratic party is re
lation to them.., Our contemporary, in the in
dulgence of its garulity, overlooks ourolijtct.
We have not sought to hear, nor do we wish
to hear, anything . more' about the evils of
banking, or of the losses which have accrued
therefrom to the people of our State. Enough
has already been said aboui these things, for
the present at least They are admitted no
one deputes them no one will dispute them.
What the people want to hear about now is
the remedy which the dominant party propose.
The American party is in a minority, and is
therefore, unable, although willing to remedy,
aa far as possible, all the evils complained of.
It refta with the dominant party to do what
we are unable to do, ami if the remedy pro
posed by it.be such as the American party can
consistently support, we are sure the great
mass of them will not stand in the way of re
form. What the Patriot desires is to know
what measure ot reform the dominant party
intend to try to accomplish. We look to the
party organs and we find them speaking dis
cordantly. The Memphis Avalanche asserts
that an exclusively metallic currency is the
sovereign panacea, and old Dr.TowNSEXD never
recommended his tarsaparilla with more zeal
than does our Memphis contemporary its King
CurealL Bat, the Avalaticlie Is young aud ar
dent, and may not be trusted as tlie exponent
of the party. So we look to the Union and
American, which bears the stamp of age.
and assumes to declare what doctrines
are orthodox; what, heretical. Through
its elaborate collection of words we find but
the faintest glimmering of a remedy, and that
when it says "All reform must be in U direc
tion of a specie basis, and must look to an in
crease of real money and a decrease of sham
money." We don't know exactly what our
contemporary means by this. Reform might
travel forever "in the direction of a specie
basis" and yet not reach it; esjH cially if re
form lie a sham democrat; fur if we have not
read the history of the country wrong, sham
democratic reform has been travelling 'in
that direction" the past twenty years and is
now further off from its destination than when
it started; whilst its course hus been marked
by a current of wpapor rags" of every descrip
tion irom a Treasury note to the sorriest
shin plaster, emitted from its erer-revolviug
wheel of fortune. If our contemporary
had said "all reform must look too the
iuauguration of the era of real money, and
to the entire abatement of sham moo-y,"
there would lie no doubt as to its reme
dy. But as this was not said, we take
it for granted our contemporary did not
mean it. If, then, it men ly wishes reform to
travel "in the direction of a specie basis," it is
too far behind the Avalatu-he to be much of a
reformer, and its remedy is no remedy. The
"specie basis" is what Americans, it they had
the power, would enforce as their remedy; but
they can't appreciate a remedy which simply
travels in that direction. Bank notes are good
money, issued up a "specie basis;" "real"
enough to answer all our uses, if convertible
into specie and if our banks are so managed
that the people shall have no complaint to
make in this respect, there is no need of fur
ther reform. Our helping hand will be ex
tended to any and all parlies who would re
form thus far. But we cannot help our friends
of the Union and American, if they contemplate
no other reform than going "ii Ute direction of a
specie basis," and right glad are we that they
tell us they will put the patient under their oirn
treatment, and apply the remedy according
to their own judgment, without counsel or ad
vice from our cump. We feel relieved, for we
would not like toappear A(rc-hearUd, and yet
we could not bo induced to enter upon that
path in whose tortuous by-ways the demo
cratic party ,in their windings "in the dire ction
of a specie basirf," have been bewildered aud
lost, lo, these many year".
But, badinage aside, will not our neighliors
of the Union and American endeavor to prevail
upon the party to unite tijHin some policy in
regard to our currency, and to proclaim it !
Will they not either support that policy which
would compel our banks to so transact their
business that they shall, at all times, pay rie
cie on demand for their notes; or that policy
which would close all our bank!), and give us
epecie instead of bank notes for our circulat
. ting medium? One or the other of these pol
IcieB must be resorted to. Which shall it be,
the former which would correct the abuses of
our present system; or the latter, which might
afso correct them, but would entail up
on us evils of no less magnitude than those
already complained of?
Expense of the . General CJovern
raeut. The democratic organs evince no little
trepidation at the prospect ot having to en
counter a reform movement, arising from the
enormous expenditures of the general govern
ment, under the present administration. They
are essaying, by the aid of false tables, to break
the force of the statements of the opposition,
and are "tremblingly alive" to the import
ance of impressing the public mind with them,
before the true tables, based upon actual ap
propriations and expenditures, can be pre
pared. One of these false tables, fixed up for
the Washington Union, and republished by
the lesser organs, absolutely puts down the
expenses of the flncal year 1858-69, at a little
over $68,000,000 thus
Regular appropriuliuiia $M,4M ,233
liejlcleucy Hum anil wctdeutal eapeueua.. 14,076,130
Now, this is ao extravagant expenditure,
at least it would be cousidend so, if economy
was a characteristic of the age; but it la far
below the real figures. A correspondent of
the New Yoik Timet dissects the i tenia of the
expenditures which make this aggregate, and
exposes iU flagrant perversion. For instance
the table of the Union puts down as he
mail steamer appropriation UC0,T60; the real
appropriation is $L439,,J00a difference of
$499,0001 Post oflko steanter appropriation
it put down at $3,500,000; the real appropria
tion is $ l7,5OO,QO0-i-a difference or onlyour
tetn milium! f Another Item, of revenue from
!mports,'iap'tit down at $1,150,000 it should
be $3,600,000 a . difference of $1,450,0001
The errors in thi-se three lb rat alone amount
to $16,945,250! " Upon this showing tho ft'
correspondent comments as follows : -
But this simple exhibit does not reveal the
half of the duplicity in th sUteuieut upon
which I am commenting. Th sum of $08,
090,000 is given as the total provUioa foe lite
the next tical year. It i U-low the truth by
more than $20,000,000. I attach no impor
tance to the fuct, upon which some str.ss is
laid by writers and speakers but partially in
form d, that, according to hi own accent tit,
Mr. Cobb will begin the next fiscal year with
balances of appropriation made by former
Congresses ot l6JkHifi6ii. This aggregate
unexpected of balances occurs every year,
and does not affect the annual appropriation.
For It fifteen or twenty million ar left of
k.last. year's appropriation at lb end of this
year, a similar proportion of the swrr gate
amount .promised at each session will lap over
upup the year foAlowlu. . ; mt.Z,J".-
The Executive statement, however, know
ingly omits the $7,165,224 of "permanent and
indefinite appropriatione,' which are author
ized by standing laws, and are not necessarily
renewable by annual legislation. iThat sum
is no larger than it was eight years ago, from
which I infer that some important omission
has occurred in this item also and I doobt
not that the trne amount under this head is
equal to $10,000,000. - . t
From this brief exposition it appears that
the following sums were provided by law, and
were continued and adopted as existing legis
lation, viz: -
By semi-official statement ,.$, 000,000
Errorn in the above lUttiwoto 16,M8MK)
By permuient and indefinite items, (pur
posely omitted) 7,l6flyt
TotaT"oriirinal and'adopted appropriation
of the late session $92,113,000
This summary is, no doubt, far within the
troth, as I hare Tiad neither the time nor the
materials for a close examination of the sub
ject. When all the acts or the session mall
have been published, I lelteve that the aggre
gate expendifnre provided for will be found
to be nesrly $ 100 000,000. This is the amount
assumed by Mr. Cbittenpen in his late open
ing of the Presidential canvass at Cov
ingtoik ' . . '
So, then, the expenditures of the present
fiscal year are likely to be near one kuncfrtd
millions! This is a very pleasant prospect for
the people, in the midst of hard times, to con
template. ' We trust it will enable them to
appreciate the value of democratic notions of
economy; and prompt them to proper efforts
lo cleanse the Augean stable. If the govern
ment is permitted to remain in the possession
of sham democracy another decade, there is
no telling to what amount the aggregate of
expenditures will be increased. During the
past session of Congress, Mr. Toombs asserted
that ours was the most corrupt government
on the face of the earth; and if a profligate
use of the public money is evidence, the
Senator did not speak without warrant The
government is in the hands of his party, it
is responsible for the corruption that has ob
tained, and it should be dealt with as corrup
tion and profligacy deserve.

The Investigation at tbe Capital.
The committee of the Legislature, engaged
at Nashville in investigating the condition of
the several States offices, publish a card in
the Nashville papers, in which they state
that their laliors have been much more tedi
ous nnd protracted than they bad anticipated,
and that their investigations will be extended
for some time yet They state that they hope
to do full and ample justice to all the parties
concerned, and to render satisfaction to the
public. They are required by the resolution
of the Legislature, from which the derive
their authority, to report to the Governor by
the first day of Octolier next. This report
will be looked for with deep interest by all
classes, and its appearance will undoubtedly
f licit some developments that will be of
lasting benefit to the interests of the people.
The committee have it in their power, by an
impartial, fearless aud scrutinizing exposure
of the corruptions which are now known to
have existed at the capital, to render an es
sential service to the State, and link their
own names with an upright administration of
our State Government They likewise, by
nursuiiiar a waverinjr, imbecile or one-sidtd
course, may destroy the advantage intended
by the investigation, and bring ridicule or
odium upon themselves. The people look to
them for a fair and fearless report, that shall
do full justice to all. whether they deserve
reprolation or applause.
Thi Be investigations cannot be too thorough
ly made. In governments of the people,
their agents cannot lie held to too strict or
frequent an accountability. We are therefore
glad to see the committee manifesting a de
termination to make a complete, patient and
accurate investigation into the condition of
those officers whose affairs they have in
charge. If it be necessary to a full investi
gation, we trust the committee will disregard
the feeble clamors of any who may complain
that they are protracting their labors, and
that they will avail themselves of every pos
sible instrument within their reach to vindi
cate the innocent and to bring the guilty to
the bar of public opinion and to condign
punishment. The purity of our Government
and the integrity of its public officers depend
materially upon this means of enforcing a
rigid accountability from the latter; and that
money is cheaply expended which is employ d
tu exposing corruption and enforcing such
accountability. Let the committee then do
their work w ith the greatest possible expedi
tion, but let them doit thoroughly, fairly
for the Patriot.

Mr Dear Smith : Terpsichore presided
last night Begin you, and think over. the
"figures" of a spacious and faslionable ball
room not over-crowded, but with enough of
spreading crinoline, sparkling eyes and twink
ling feet, to complete the picture of ball-room
beatitudes, continuing from 6tto 12. o', the
clock, and you may realize the occasion.
These incipient angels, whose wings are yet
delayed but a little, personated several extra
dozens i of the graces, while the "lords" did
the amiable most winningly. There is posi
tively nothing like it - This baiting corres
pondent cannot enter into . particulars, no
more than he could have walked the circling
hours in the dance. lie freely confesses that
the charming Fmoothness that made the occa
sion one to be treasured by the gay and happy
participants, somewhat staggered his preju
dices against such entertainments, which
latter he now thinks are rather fanciful than
substantial. In a magnificent cedar wreath
that over-arched the east end of the bull
room, this annotator fancied he saw the im
palpable, luscious Venus, Her business there
was to unveil the paradise of love, and to
strew the pathway of Hymen to the marriage
altar, with the richest flowers of tbe heart
garden. It was a cardinal mistake the heath
ens made, in putting arrows into the hands of
the Cupids to pierce the heart withal. Noth
ing could be more savage. Our civilization
revolts at it It is not even poetical, because
the fancy breeds disgust instead of a pleasur
able excitement I therefore take down my
copy of the classics and expunge all traces
of tbe Cupids not by the miserable and
ridiculous subterfuge of "drawing black, lines
around" them, but I will scratch and blot and
wholly obliterate them. "But softly; it may
lie a bad translation. It is possible these
quiver-bearers are properly the svquences
that they come after VenuB has had her day
the little tormenters and mischief-mak-rs. I
incline, upon this, not to expunge, and make
this entry on the fly-leaf: "The learned trans
lator of these mythologies, has fallen into a
grave error in the matter of the Cupids. They
thould follow after the goddess, and be painted of
both text. With these 'slight variations,'
which the every day experience of ancients
and moderns approves, the volume is herein
correct" So, I flit incontinently, from the
ball-room to the library. I must flit back, it
it is but to take my hat and exit, before
which, albeit, a part of the programme I
never forget, I march to the supper room. I
find an array of victual and viands, solid
and ornamental, so luxurious and various, as
to indicate the resources of Beaver Dam, in
this department, boundless. As we pass
hence. I take an air-line for my "cabin," and
casting a glance back, see the dance, which
sways mistily in the mellow lamp-light, re
newed with increased zest.
There is now a most admirable company at
the springs. Dr. Kkijjcr, who is a most
genial and relined gentleman, impresses all
his guests with the feeling that they are in
the midst of everything that can contribute
to health and pleasure. His amiable lady
possesses nil those high qualities of convi
viality and womanly dignity, which banish
the petty bustle of housewifery, and consti
tute her the graceful head of the social circle.
The general superintendent, Mr. Nlxxely, is
always at the right place at the right time,

Several of the Banks of this State, so the
Comptroller informs us, have notified him of
the acceptance on their part of conditions
imposed upon them by the last Legislature.
Among them are the Bank of Tennessee, Shel
byville Bank, Lawrenceburg Bank, Agricul
tural Bank. Buck's Bank, Bank of Middle
Tennessee. Exchange Bank and Bank of Chat
tanooga the last, however, with a condition
annexed that tbe acceptance shall not be so
construed as to involve the Bunk in a for
feiture of its charter in the event an officer or
teller of the Bank shall, contrary to the in
structions of the Board of Directors, violate
any provision of the law the penalty for which
is a forfeiture.
The Comptroller has addressed a circular
letter to the different Attorneys General for
the respective Judicial Circuits of the State,
informing them what Banks have accepted,
and directing them to proceed against any
Banks within their district? that had suspend
ed specie payments, and have not tiled lb- ir
acceptance of these acts of the Legislature,
as part of their charters.
If suits shall be instituted under these in
structions, the question will be made whether
it is competent for the Legii-lature, constitu
tionally, to grant a charter in which a peualty
for suspension is prescribed, as H the case in
all the charters, we believe, and after the
franchises are accepted and the grant thereby

much affectionate pride in cramming me, as if
I had been a darling school-boy, home for the
holidays now tore some of the largest figs

the almonds, presented them to me oue by
one. I considered that oue fit of
itidi?estiou could not do much harm, and
Yielded to the fun and amusement of the fete.
How d 'lighted the dear old lady was to please
me! How fast she peeled the oranges and
popped little pieces on to the pounded sugar
ou my plate, and helped me to large pink
slice of preserved quince, and talked to me
of her daughters, and patted my hand affec
tionately! At lt 1 thought the feast was
happily ended; but alasl Dhudu opened a
fine, rich colored pomegranate, and scooping
out all its bright and shining seed, placed
them, sprinkled with Hue white sugar, before

f The 'Washington correspondence of
the Baltimore Sun writes: .
The intelligence that Mr. Forsyth has not
left his post has been received here with satis
'iction. Since that it is our policy to reeog
ize governments de facto, there are "suscep
tible" persons who augur great things for
detracted Mexico, from the fact that all the
r.ilitary chieftains seen united against Zu
1 taga, but our government sees too far, and
has experienced too much, to "feel any great
interest in a people who are guided by neither
example nor principle," It seems to be now
generally admitted by all parties in our own
country, if, not by those abroad, that the best
possible remedy. for the distresses of Mexico
would be gradual absorption by the United
States; - Nor- would that result be probably
retarded by the recognition .of a reserved
right to tbe peopl of a province or provinces,
proposed to be set off,- that they should be
parties consenting. Our unending claims

will- ever be sufficient, with her transient
Tulers, to procure for ns satisfaction in

How touching and original are the ideas
sometimes expressed by children ! Surely, if
flowers are the alphabet of Angels by which
God writes his glory upon the hills and in the
valleys." those little human flowers are God's
own alphabet: by which he writes to his crea
tures of-whom and of what "is the Kingdom
4 Heaven." Quaint and singular as beauti
ful are the trains of thought to which the ex
pressions of these petit cherubs give rise; nay
"A grave grown man will start to hear
The strange words of child."
An expression of these quaint, infantile
ideas took dace the other evening. A little
fellow of three summers whose mother wing
ed her way to the "better land" when he was
not seven months old, was sitting upon the
steps in the dusk of evening watching the new
moon serene and silvery, then descending in
the western heavens, commenced, without a
word's being said in regard to his mother,
throwing kisses with hia hand to the moon,
saying. -Go. kissy mamma?" What strange
influence was that which led his infantile
musings afar off to his mother while gazing
at the beautiful orb of night, aud to connect
them thus together! Was that mother, in
accordance with the philosophy of Sweden
borg. through mystic stellar and lunar chan
nels, then hovering near ber little darling and
shedding down upon him the gentle and holy
influence which drew his yet un contaminated
thoughts towards herself? Will it thus ever
be nih. bis truurdian antrei. DanoDlviuir bim
as with a heavenly shield from the storms of
life? The thought is certainly beautiful, and
for aught mortal knows to the contrary, may
be true. We can see nothing irrational in it.
If, as our great epic poet says,
"Millions of spiritual creatures walk the earth -Unseen,
both when we wake and when we sleep,"
we can conceive of no combination of cir
cumstancesin which a "spiritual being" w ould
be more likely to commune with au earthly
one, than in that wherein a mother has left
her prattling innocent to tread, without the
love and guardianship which a mother only
can bee tow, comparatively alone the path

The great bard of nature, in a burst of su
blimity, exclaims : "What a piece of work
manship is man ! How noble in reason 1 bow
Infinite in faculties! in form and moving, bow
express and admirable ! in action, how like
an angel! in apprehension, how like a God!"
And yet we doubt whether tbe mightiest
achievements of his matured intellect show
his original nature and divine origin so forci
bly or so clearly as do the spontaneous out
gushings of childhood, tbe mysterious com
munings of nature w ith its author. There
seems to be a kind ot Inspiration witnessed at

To this Tom promptly answered "I said

but with a different accent, the one being in
common time, the other in Bix-c-ight time, and
consequently the position of the accented
notes was different"
Sir James "What is a musical accent?"
Cooke "My firms are a guinea a lesson
sir." A loud laugh.
Sir James, (rather ru filed) "Never mind
your terms here. ask you what is a musical
accent? Can you see it?"
Sir James "Can you feel it?"
Cooke "A musician can." Great laugh
ter. Sir James, (very angry) "Now, pray, sir,
don't beat alx.ut the bush, but explain to his
lordship ( Lord Denmati, who wits the judge
that tried the case) aud the jury who are 6up-
Iiosed to know nothing about music, the meau
ng of what you call acceut"
Cook- "Accent In music is a certain stress
laid upon a particular note in the same man
ner a you would lay a stress UKn nuy given
word for the purpose of being better under
stood. Thus, if I were to say, 'You are an
ass,' it rests on ass; but if I were to say,' You
are an ass,' it rests ou you, Sir James."
Id iterated shouts of laughter, by the whole
court, iu which the bench itself joiued, fol
lowed this repartee. Silence haviug been at
length obtained, the judge, with much seem
ing gravity accosted the chop-fallen counsel
Lord Denman "Are you satisfied, Sir
Sir James (who deep red as be usually was,
to use poor Jack Reeve's own words, hod be
come scarlet in more than name) in a great
huff, said "The witness may go down !"'
And go down he did, amidst renewed laugh
ter, in which all joined, particularly the learn
ed brothers, except one, who didu t see any
joy in the matter. ; ' -
