A rhlted MUf Bnk.
Bince the monetary convult-ion which star-
tied the country lout a year since, mnch
baa lx-en said in rrgard to the advantage of
a National Bank in such a crisis. The discus
sion of tbe suhjict has not. however, made
any considerable impression upon the popu
lar roiud not enough, at any rate, to induce
any political party, either in the North or in
the South, to prop)ee the t-Btabliehuunt of an
institution of thin character to fnrnibh a sound
currency. The old whig party, in the heigb
day of its propperity and power when it
was ted hy the gallant, chivalrous Clat, and
the invincible "Webster and at a time when
the people knew something of, becauKe they
had experienced, the benefits of a National
Bank iaeffectuitlly labored to reinstate the
national currency, which hnd been discarded
at the command of General Jackson. Since
their failure, although, we preumr, few of the
old Whig party, especially of those who took
an active part in its discussions, either in the
Legislative Halls, oa the hustings, or in the
press, have changed their views touching ei
ther the constitutionality or expediency of
that leading measure of whig policy, it has
been regarded as obsolete by all parties. An
attempt to vitalize it now, as we have seen
during the pat year, will require a vast
amount of labor. The remaining portion of
the old whig masses, parceled out amongst
the Americans. Republicans, and Democrats,
cannot be brought together in a separate or
ganization again the joung men who have
taken the places of those who have paid the
debt of nature, are oduce in a different
school of finance. whilst the mum demo
cracy are, as they have been since the days of
Jacksonism, opposed to it altogether. To
work success out of such a prot-pect as this,
is a task supremely uninviting, in our judg
ment. Warmly, therefore, as we espoused
the measures of the whig party in Its day, we
have no desire to return to the issue of a Na
tional Bank for a relief from the monetary
evils of the present day. Nevertheless, if
further discussions should have a tendency to
awaken the American party to a proper Bcnse
of the importance of a great regulator of the
currency, and it shall be adopted as a leading
feature of our policy, no journal will give it
a more zealous support than the Patriot.
John W. Forxkt. Siuce the unprincipled
knave whose dishonored name heads this
article, conspired with a drunken play-actor
to extort false testimony against a defensehro
woman's all her character, he has In-i-n re
garded as beneath tite contempt of honorable men.
But he has recently added another dark
crime to his already debased character.
This is very severe upon Col. Forney, but
not less severe upon President Bccuaxajj.
Since Col. Forxkt conspired agaiust the
character of Mrs. Forrest, he has leen the
bosom friend and counsellor of the President.
Not two years ago, the President, in view of
the "high confidential relations which a Penn
sylvania President ought to sustain towards
a Pennsylvania Senator," declared he pre
ferred the election of Col. FouxEXas Senator
from Pennsylvania, and added that he would
regard such an election 'as a friendly act
t wards myself" (James Bcchanav.) This he
did in a letter to Henry S. Mott, Esq., under
date of "Wheatland, January 7th, 1857." If,
as the Avalanche assert", Col. Forney since
the Mrs. Forrest conspiracy has been
"beneath the contempt of honoraltle men." how
can President Buchanan escape the odium of
being a dithonorable man? Surely, no one,
not utterly lost to all sense of honor, would
seek to make a confidential friend of "an
unprincipled knave" "beneath the contempt
of honorable raeu!" How can any sham
democrat complain hereafter, when any
opponent of Mr. Bi'chasa.v shdfll denounce
bimas a corrupt politician, and as wholly
unworthy the confidence of any party? That
this is the true character of the President we
have never doubted, and we ore satisfied,
from the "side wipe" which the Amlanche
administers to him above, that such in the
judgment of eome of those who, for party
purposes, talk most vehemently in his praise.
yTbe Hon. Jxo. C. Kxox. the Demo
cratic Attorney General of the State of Penn
sylvania, opposes the administration on the
Kansas question, and recently made a speech
in Mr. Hickman's district in favor of his re
flection to Congress. The great mass of the
democracy in all the Northern States seem to
take sides with Docqlas against the adminis
tration. The administration party i confined
principally to its hireling oflice-holders and
"Richmond is oh thk Ska!" The reader
will learn from the following extract from the
St Louis correspondence of the Memphis Ea
gle and Enquirer, that "Lean Jimmy" Joxss
is in Illinois canvassing for Douglas, and that
It is probable he will remove from this State.
The ex-Senator's notions about the fight be
tween Douglas aud Buchanan are not ill
founded, we suspect :
St. Lous, Tuesday, Si pt 21, 1858.
In a late letter I referred toyour fellow citi
seu. Gov. Jones. I did not know, at the lime,
the chief object of bis vUit to this region. See
ing him on our Fair grounds, I ascriled his
presence amongst ua to his interest in such
uaromantic and practical things as fat hor
ses aud fat bullocks, thinking Uiat, perhaps,
since his retirement from the turbulent whirl
pool of politics, he intended to devote himself
to agriculture, or horticulture, and, like Sir
William Temple, find in the contemplation of
bis own fruits. Mowers aud stock, that enjoy
ment which State craft could not fiiruisb.
But I wa mistaken. "Lean Jimmy" has
come up to the North-west to help the "Lit
tle Giaut" He baa not, bv any means, hl
'bis Interest lu politics, and having no luttles
of bis own to light, since Andy Johnson stole
the march on bun and gt po-w-iou of his
Senatorial seat, be weut to Illinois to tight
the battles of Douglas. 11 mude a speech at
iQuincy last Monday evening, aud another at
Springtii Id on Tuesday, and, it is said, be in
tends to follow up the good work so vigor
ously begun by slumping the Sucker Sua-.
Both this speeches were eloquent ones, for
the Governor never wattes auy other kind ;
but the Suckers, somehow or ether, did not
know how to take hiin. Hi t loqueuce was
poured out in behalf of Douglas, which would
have beeu well tuougu if Li hearers had not,
while, listeuiug to hU words, been beset by
the reflection that, for tlire years, the Gover
nor bas been a Bucbauan man. Now, the
people in Illinois are absorbed iu the war so
savagely Carried on between the President
and the "Li tile Giant;" they thiuk of noth
ing else aud hear of uotbiug i let and canuol
posaibly ctiiupreueud bow a man can be a
friend to Douglas without bein an enemy to
Buchauau, or be a friend to Buchanan with
out being an unrelenting foe to Douglas.
When, therefore, the Governor vpoke good
things ot bolu the hostile chU b and advised
harmouy, the iuappreciative Suckers merely
laughed at him.
While ou thin uhj ct I cannot avoid Incor
porating in my letter the subjoined extract
from au editorial l. tur which. I find iu a lte
number of tint St Jos pb (Mo.) JoarmiL 1 he
editor atU ud.-d our late tair, aud while here,
went to the theatre to see Mim Avonia Joa t.
the popular and beautiful actress. After
speaking of the theatre aud the play, the edi
tor proceeds :
"Ex-Gov. Jones, of Tcnu.,wa present, and
sat right behind m . He a as eugaged moat
of the time in earnest aud deep coaversaiioo
with an old lilina.s Doctor, who was "ram
pant" ou the Dougla. aud LIucolu question.
The old Dr. 6aid he hated the Republicans
worse than be did the devil, but yet he did
not know what to do with Douglas. Then
the Governor told him bis dnty was very
plain support Douglas by all means. lie
said in his State Douglas was now stronger
than he ever was. Though I was deeply in
terested in the piny by Mitt Jones. I was more
deeply interested in the conversation of Gov,
Jones. He charges the war between the
"Little Giant', and Old P.nckc having been
urged on by SI id el I, CM end Vavit. for their wn
prrmmol aggrtrndizemtnt and taid he would call
Uieir names if he vat to make a speech, lie mrid
the aim of Viffe gmllemen vat to kill off both
Douglas end Buchanan."
1 desire to direct yonr attention particular
ly to the lines which I have italicistd. The
Governor's theory alout the war between the
Pr'-eulent and Douglas is a novel one, though
a rational one. What could be more natural
and plausible than the idea that Douglas and
the President are. two fighting fowls, pitted
against each other in a death combat by those
undeniable aspirant". Slidell. Cobb and Davw,
that the death of both may leave a clean field
for oth'rs in 1800! Before I dismiss this
theme, let me suggest to you that perhaps
T nm-sfce is s.hout to lose ' Lean Jimmy."
He is not up here to purchase fine cattle, but
to look out a place to settle nt. l on need
not Ikj surprised to learn, before long, that he

a very long tongue," '-Servants know every

"Are you not surprised to hear that she is a
widow, and just going to be married again?
If she had been prettier I might feel very
anxious for you, Mr. leicester; and X am
afraid she m a great flirt."
I made a gesture of warniug, for Florence
stood in the door-way.

Her voice was husky. I followed her into

She looked at me wildly, despairingly.
"What shall I do?"
'It is for you to decide."
'For me! Do you not know that I am a

"And his,- she murmured.
I made no answer, for I would not say
what I really throught. We stood side bv
side, her eyes bent down, aud her whole figure
relaxed and weary.
Suddenly she started shuddering.
'I must leave you." She passed her hand
across her brow, as if to rid herself of some
tormenting vision, and forced a smile. "Look
at me for the last time iu this sliaohy gown.
This was one of my minor trials; I had to
abandon rny wardrole when I ran away, and
I have a taste for magnificence. I must 'make
a toilet for the first time in three weeks.
Three weeks only, is it! It seems as if a
whirlwind had swept me through long age?"
Sh was gone.
The butler brought in extra candles. The
rooms wore a look of fete and preparation. I
wand-Ted listlessly out of the house. I
went back to that memorable bench. Wild,
impossible thoughts chased each other
through my brain, such ai no! I can not
descrilie, 1 would cot describe what I felt,
what I contemplated. Hours wore away.
Hack to society aud its claims. Mr. Ashton
had no doubt already arrivtd with his guest,
and, of course, there were good-natured in
quiries going on as to my alisence. I cared
very little tor their remarks, but better brave
it at once.
1 was very deliberate, very careful: went
to my room and arranged my dress; I think I
brushed my hair unintermittingly for ten
minutes. I recollect how slowly I went
down stairs, never pausing, but secretly anx
ious to delay the moment.
So that was Alfred Varnham! He was
talking to Mrs. Ashton. He was handsome,
dark, high-bred, calm, grave, cold as a cold
man can be, courteous withal, graceful aud
I shook hands with Mr. Ashton: "Where
bad I beeu?" "Asleep." Well. I bad been
dreaming, so my conscience ouly winced.
I was presented to Mr. Varnham. I saw a
smil exchanged between Laura Hamilton
and Carry Ashton. Not a muscle quivered
and this was the man she loved.
I answered mechanically and correctly,
put questions de rigueur, made phrases of pol
iteness, and inwardly repeated, "She loves
this man! she loves this man!''
"Mrs. lUymoud will not sing, papa," Caro
line Ashton said, "although you have just re
vealed to us what a musician she is. and heg-gi-d
the favor, through me, ef ouc song!"
"Ob, she must consent!" Mr. Ashton ex
claimed. 'I must try my personal persua
sions." 1 followed his footsteps with my eyes. Mr.
Varnham returned to his hostess, and Caro
line drew me aside, whispering, "Have you
seen her? What a transformation! Dress
and brighter hopes have turned our plaiu
miss-U-ry into a married beauty."
Then I saw ber, hut not distinctly. There
was, as it were, a field of strange vapor le

Oh, lis not. believe me, in that nappy time
We can love, as in boors of less transport we may;
en onr sanies, or oar Hopes, 'tis the gay sunny prime.
Bat affection is truest when these Cade away.
"When we see the first glory of youth pass as by.
Like a leaf on the stream Uiat will never return;
When oar cap which bad spark to J with pleasure .so
Firrt tnsteg of the other, the dark flowing urn;
Then, then is the time when affection hold sway
With a depth and a tenderness Joy never knew;
Love norsed nmocg pleasures is laitbless as they,
But the love born of borrow, like Sorrow is true-'
Florence's voice trembled as she pronounc
ed ibis last line. She swept tbe coords Hur
ried! v. and eot ud. A murmur of admiration
was interrupted by Mr. Ashton catching ber
hand. -But the third verse, my dear; you
must not cheat us."
I don't recollect it: it bas escaped me."
"How does it go:" be continued; I remem
ber the last of it " .
"So it is not mid splendor, prosperity , mirth, ,
That the depth of Lovo'h generous spirit appears;
To the eunshine of smiles It may first owe its birth,
But the soul of ita sweetness is drawn out by tears
Florence shook her head. "I don't trust
to my memory; it is sometimes faithless. I
sbouid never sing except by book: Will not
Miss Hamilton kindly replace me at the harp?
You do yourself injustice, Sir. in wishing to
hear me when some are present w no put my
poor voice to shame."
Varnham had his eves fixed noon Mrs. Rav
mond as she spoke. Without looking toward
him. she snemed to know that he waa watch
ing her. She went np to him and said a few
words, ne answered in still fewer with a
smile, sweet on the surface, icy beneath. Her
back was turned to the company. I eaw her
give him an imploring, pleading look, nis
lips moved in reply to her silent, earnest ap
peal; then he crossed the room and spoke to
She stood where he had left her, pretending
to examine tbe flowers on the table against
which he had been leaning.
'Come into the piazza." I said to her. "The
stars are very bright, the sky very clear. I
shall almost be able to count the diamonds in
your bracelet by the light."
We went out together.
"Florence! you are mad or I am. That
man does not love you. He can love nothing
"Hush! it is not honorable to speak so; it
is not like you it is not you, iu fact: you are
beside yourself. There is a glitter in your
eyes a wildue-ss in your spee-ch. He has no
ticed it; he has noticed me. There is no de
ceiving nim. Already ne suspects "
-So much the better. Make bis suspicion
a certainty. Florence have you decided ?
"And " my life hung on ber words.
'Frederick, we must part 1"
I see her now, as she stood before me in all
her loveliness, her pride, her sorrow, and her
"Are you determined :"
'It must be so."
'Then I shall no longer importune you."
She placed her hand lightly on my arm.
"We must not part iu auger. Later you will
understand me: vou will know aud feel how
sorely I am pressed, how sadly tried. There
are duties, obligations, memories, which must
Is- obeyed. Turn where I will I am haunted,
pursued, baffled, beset by my own weakness
and the power of others. Don't mistake my
meaning. A whisper, a bint ot what is passed
between us would be sufficient to break my
present betrothal, and I would be miserable.
So wayw ard, so uucertaiu I am so divided
between two strong feelings so utterly per
plexed, that this calm heaven never looked i
down upon a more troubled and distracted
spirit. Forget me. I have been but a mo
ment's interest to a man young, tree, wiin the
world before him, and with many a heart rea- I
dy to exchange itself for his own. I am old
er than my years, saddened, wearied, disap
pointed. Do not desire to liuk your fresh lit-:
with mine. Twice I have loved; twice I have
learned the bitterness of loving. Is it in my
self? is it my fat'-? I shall never keep a heart.
s a past dream you will care tor me, ana
talk of me. perhaps, to your children, liut
to-night we part. I beseech you to leave
Ashton to-morrow, lou peril my peace ot
mind vou will do more. No earthly power
can shake my resolve. Am I right? Am I
wrong? God knows, rarewell!'
She pressed my hand witn convulsive ener
gy; her burning lips toucueu my brow, ana l
have never seen Florence Iiaymond since
My story is told. Whatever blanks of im
portance, whatever necessary details I have
omitted, my reader will kindly supply. I am
no author; and I have been often diffuse, and
again too succinct.
Does there remain anything to add? She
married, she lived, she died. Wras she happy?
I know not Could I have made her happier?
Sometimes I think so. I have flirted with
many girl since that spring-time at Ashton
Hall. I have seen many handsome' women,
and fair hands have furtively slid into mine;
and scarlet lips have met my own, nnd bright
eyes have smiled and wept, they said, for my
sake. Dut to no other ear have I whispered
"I love you!" and I am the hist of my name;
and my "sister's sons will live here when the
'old man" is gone, and jestingly rejoice that
he never loved aud never married.

T. S. Grand l.odse ofOdd Fellowi.
As stated in the Patriot of yesterday, tbe
United States Grand Lodge ot the Inde
pendent Order of Odd Fellows assembled in
the morning at the Hall on Gay street
George W. Usee, M. W. Grand Sire, in the
chair. On the call of the roll it appeared
that 24 grand lodges and 14 grand eucanip
ments were represented. After the organiza
tion the Grand Sire presented his annual re
port. He says that "the first duty of grate
ful hearts is to rendor homage and adoration
to the Supreme Grand Sire of the universe
for His continued approbation and protection
to us, and to that noble charity for which we
are tailoring; for without His fatherly care
aud love our beloved Order could not, in so
few years, have grown from weakness to
strength, from poverty to wealth, and from
one man now to number hundreds of thous
The report of tbe Grand Sire Is a lengthy
document, giving the most full and interesting
particulars of the Order throughout the
jurisdiction of the Lodge. Ia the report he
referred in appropriate terms to the death of
P. G. M. Daniel Hersey, the first grand
master of Massachusetts, a great portion of
whose life was devoted to the interests of the
Order; alo, of the demiso of P. G. Sire
Howell Popkins, of Pennsylvania, and of
several former representatives to the grand
The receipts of the fiscal year closing on
the l-t of September, from the Grand Ldjre
were $9.008.38 making a total of $10,910,
78. The whole receipts up to the close of
tbe year from all sources were $12,198.79.
aod there is still due the sum of $5,373 08. of
w hich it is estimated $4,500 will be paid dur
iug the session and w hich from tbe estimates
will leave a deficit of $1,201.21 The whole
amount appropriated at the last session was
$18,862.75, and the actual amount expended
$16,318.30 leaving an excess of appropria
tion ovr actual expense of $2,544.45. He
-savs there win. nevertheless, oe a denciency.
arising out ot the fact that the arrears of the
two past sessions is for tbe most part out
standing the precise amount of this deficit
will depend upou tbe actual amount of
receipts after making up of this report and
before tbe close of the session, which will
only have la-en ascertainad by the report of
tbe cotniniitee on Cuauce; but whatever it
may be, its entire absorption should lw pro
vided fr without recourse to temporary
shirts, which only serve to def. r aud sumei.t
a debt which should lie proni tly l;eb.rj. i.
It may be said in relation to t'te n ! p ra
tion of the year, that revenue in v.ew w l r
moue-tary difficulties which have tve-ry wb-rv,
and in eve-ry channel of business prevailed,
bas been much greater that might have been
excepted, and it may safely be inferred that
upon a re turn of the business prosjwrlty, of
the country, the Bnances of the Griu.d Lodge
will la? much improved.
The usual com rail tees were appointed, and
all tbe preliminary UisitM arranged to
proceed with tbe business fur which the Udy
