SATUXDAT.
XOVEJQEE 13. 1838
Tlil day. twenty years ago. the writer
hereof, then just on the verge of manhood, in
connection with another, somewhat bis junior,
entered the ranks of the corps editorial.
Warm ardent, flushed with the buoyant hope
of youth, devotedly attached to the princi
ples of the Whig party, which was then as
suming a powtiou ia the affections of the
people never before Attained by a party ar
rayed against the democracy and proifd of
the leadership of Clay, and Webster, and the
other intellectual giant of the ay, "who gave
character and strength to the cause, we felt
that we had consecrated ourself not to the
service of party, nor men, but of our coun
try. Regarding the press as the conservator
of justice, of morals, of law and order, we
appreciated the ponxibility of the position,
and determined at the outset, that in our
hands the press should never be used for un
worthy purposes, but should remain unshack
led, free and independent. By so doing, w
knew we might be less efficient as a partisan
in tie estimation of those who subscribe to
the monstrous sentiment that "all is fair In
politic;" but we felt that what we lost in
their esteem would le more than made up in
what we would g iin in the opinion of the
more just and enlightened, and in our own
selt-respect. In following up this rule, we
have frequently been brought into collision
with men of our own party. Not.ible in
stances of this are to be found in our cordial
endorsement of the repeal of the Missouri
Restriction, and support of the right of Kan
- eas to admission into the Union under the
Leccinpton Constitution. It was unpleasant
to disagree with old triends and coluborers,
but, iu the pursuit of right, we could not hesi
tate as to our course. Nor shall we hesitate
in future. We shall maintain our fixed pur
pose to conduct a free press; or abandon the
profession when we can do so no longer with
honor and profit.
In the twenty years which have passed
since we ascended the tripod, what changes
have taken place! Nearly all of those whom
we found at the head of the press in Alabama
at the time, have "shuffled off this mortal
coil.'' Some few of them remain, having
slipped the harness, and retired to the enjoy
ment of their well-won honors in private life
Conspicuous among.-t tlis.se is the founder and
for many long years the editor of the llunts-
ville Democrat. Philip Woooso.v. One of the
lest and most useful of men! When he struck
Lis flag before the sure approaches of unre
lenting Old Age, his party lost an able and
Fagaciotis leader .whose counsels were seldom,
if ever, followed without advantage. A dis-
c;ple of the eld r IJitchie, of the Enquirer, he
ever showed himself a pupil worthy of bis
great master. May the evening of his life be
serene and beautiful, as the close of a bright,
q'liet autumnal day! The glorious Whig
parly to w hich we offered up the firstlings of
our mental flck. together with the two
mighty leaders who embodied its principles,
its chivalry, and its glory, has passed away;
and to-day the parties of 1838 and 1858 form
a most striking contrast. How are those of
to-day dwarfed )y it. How love of, principle,
country sectional a in i ty, conspicuous
twenty years ago, are subordinated now to
discord, confusion, jealousy and sectional
Laste! There's a lesson in the picture for all
who will contemplate it seriously. We turn
from it with loathing for the mousing jwiliti
cians who have precipitated the country into
the present condition of things.
Our -country's progress! Huw rapid it has
been, in these twenty years, in all that con
stitutes true greatness, despite social and po
litical evils! Her boundaries, too, have leen
enlarged, thus extending the area of freedom,
and adding more domain to the rich heritage
of jostcrity. In b urning, the arts and sci
ences, in commerce and agriculture, how re
a stless has hwn the flowing tide! Advance
ment and improvement have characterized
everything except that which needs most
both advancement and improvement, the
politics which sway the minds of the people.
Let us hope that in this respect the next
twenty-years may be in advance of the past!
Our early co-laborer in Alabama, has been
constantly at his post, and to-day, with us,
enters upon his twenty-first editorial year.
He has done nobly, won reputation, and at
tuned a leading position amongst the ablest
and most honored editors of his State. The
beautiful embryo city, his adopted home, has
many worthy sons, but Done more ready than
be to advocate what he conceives to be the
cause of justice aud truth. May he long con
tinue to flourish.
Will the readers of the Patriot pardon
this exhibition of egotism. One's twenty-first
tiirth day don't come often, and we w ill not
j oon repeat the offense. We hope for many
years to come to labor for their enjoyment,
and the advancement of correct principles,
and we are sure they will let ua off this
time.

The Ilanki and the Currency
KThe idea of a redeemable paper currency
was carried into e fleet- for the first time on
this side of the Atlantic by the Hank of North
America, which w as established at Philadel
phia, at the close of the revolutionary war
by Robert Morris, chiefly as an assistance to
him in the difficult office of Superintendent of
the continental finances. The use of this sort
of currency, added to the convenience of
loans to merchants, proved to be so satisfac
tory, that banks wi re not long afterwards
established at New York, I to-ton aud Balti
more one in each of those cities.
These four were the only banks in existence
i'l this country, when the first bunk of the
ITuittd States was chart red by Congress in
1791.
During the sixty-seven years which have
elapsed since thru, our country has enjoyed a
degree of general prosperity, unp.ir.alif led in
the history of nations. With the growth of
t he coqntry has grown the system of a re
deemable paper currency. With the increase
in population and vvialthbave increased the
number of har.ksund the amount of banking
capital, and we have now upwards of fourteen
I bundled banks, with an aggregate capital of
about fourbutidred million of dollars.
In thus establishing, eticouragiug, protect
ing, and extending the red -ciuabie iaptT
system, the American people have attested in
the strongest possible manner their sense of
sits great convenience aud utility. Aa a
peopKlhey arecharact rised by a raret-hiewd-ness
in their business pursuits. Hating tried
the redeemable paper system for more than
half a century must they not be taken to be
!compctnt to judge of Its claims to tin Irfav
or ? Are Gov. Johnson and Mr. Nicholson
!w iser than they ?
j The simple fact that the ryt-tem baa been
for bo many years so thoroughly tritd and so
rener.illy approved by the people of the
Jotted States, should cause the bard money
ironunciamento of the handful of pxrtj H
iciaus, however intelligent," that tuet at
be Capitol In S -pteniber last, to be promptly
iacountcnancod by th piopl of Tennessee.
The marked prefVrencj which has Lvea
i.uiifcted by the people of the United Slato
i -KnutcuueiiBe tor re
deemable paper currency over a purely metal
lic one, derives additional weight from the
fact that the preference has been inflexibly
persisted in, notwithstanding Arce general
bank suspensionsin l8l4. 1837 and 1857
and the bank failures which occurred at those
periods, and wbtob have now and then occur
red on other occasions.
This fact shows that, in the settled judg
ment of the people of the United State,
great as have been the inconveniences and
losses BUs'taih'Ed by them in consequence of
occasional bank failures and suspensions, this
inconvenience and these losses have not been
so great, by a good deal, a the hard-money
declaimers would make them out to be not
so great as to induce the people to abolish
the system, or so great as even to fchake their
confidence in its utility.
In regard to the extent and universality of
the injuries inflicted by bank failures, very
erroneous estimates and very incorrect state
ments are not nnfrequently mad ?. Of the
entire population of Tennessee, for instance,
the number is small, relatively speaking, who
ever lost anything by bank failures !
Similar errors prevail in regard to the class
of persons who are the greatest sufferers by
reason of the failures of insolvent hanks.
The poor laboring men, it is often said, are
the greatest sufferers. This is as great
fallacy as ever was uttered. Are the pock eta
of the laboring poor ever stuffed with bank
notes? Are they holders of bank stocks! Do
they make deposits in banks? now. then, is
it possible that they should be the greatest
sufferers from bank failures? .
But it is said, that the loss of one dollar to
a poor man, being all he has, is relatively aa
great as the loss of a thousand dollars U to a
man a thousand timea richer. Not 60. The
poor man can, by a day's work, make an
other dollar, but the thousand dollar man
will have to labor long and industriously be
fore he can replace the thousand dollars he
has lost.
Clearly it is upon the monied classes of
society, or those which from the nature of
their business' pursuits are compelled to keep
considerable amounts of money always on
band, and for daily or frequent use it is up
on these classes, which constitute but a small
portion, relatively speaking, of the commun
ity, that the losses occasioned by the break
ing of banks chiefly falL
Money is too valuable to be kept long idle.
You don't find the farmers and planters, as a
general thing, keeping enough on band ever
to be seriouslv injured by a bank failure. It
is the merchants and traders, and the monied
men generally, that are the chief sufferers on
these occasions.
It may with truth be asserted, that but a
small portion, compared with the whole pop
ulation, of the people of Tennessee, have
ever sustained any loss whatever by a bank
failure that of that small portion, the loss
to the greater part, has not been such as seri
ously to incommode them and that the whole
aggregate loss sustained in Tennessee, since
the first bank was chartered, by bank fail
ures, has been, to the community generally,
insignificant, compared with the vast and iu
calculable benefits which every class of socie
ty, farmers and planters, manufacturers and
mechanics, merchants and traders, and espe
cially the poor laboring classes, have derived
from the paper currency, which has been in
use among them benefits, I mean, over and
above all which a purely metallic currency
could by any possibility have conferred.
If the injuries, and I would not underrate
them, which have been sustained by the coun
try by reason of the failures of insolvent
bank-, be, as I have shown, greatly exag
gerated by the anti-bank writers and speakers,
much more are the inconvenience and losses
which have resulted from the temporary sus
pensions or solvent banks. laKe, lor illus
tration, the late suspension by the solvent
banks of this State, particularly of the three
old banks of this place, whose issues consti
tute the bulk of our circulating medium. A
continued drain of gold from Europe bad
caused a drain thither from New York and
other importing points on the Atlantic The
demand for gold for shipment to Europe at
New York, caused a flow of gold from the in
terior of this country to that city. We were
in debt to New York, aud the gold in the
vaults of our banks was wanted at that
period, to be sent to England and France,
from those countries to be sent to others far
away iu the East. Now, suppose our banks
had had in their vaults a dollar in specie for
every paper dollar of theirs in circula
tion, and had gone on to redeem all their
notes by paying in exchange for them all their
specie, what would have been the conse
quence? Why, the gold thus drawn out of the
banks would not have remained in the coun
try aud taken the place, as a circulating
medium, of the bank notes that bad been
previously in circulation Instead of remain-
ng here, it would have gone out of the St ate,
and we should have been left literally without
any circulating medium at all without either
gold or bank notes. And what would have
been the result of that operation? Wide
spread ruin the like of which the jieople of
this Siate have never seen, and which Heaven
forbid they ever should see.
By suspending, therefore, under the cir
cumstances which -xited, our banks were
enabled, by means of their notes then in cir
culation, to prevent a great calamity, and to
preserve for the people a circulating medium,
which answered all the domestic purposes of
a medium of exchange the purposes, that is,
of purchasing property, paying debts, Jtc.
Except when gold or exchange was wanted
to pay a debt out of the State, the notes of
the State, Planters', and Union bank-, during
the suspension, were just as useful, just as
good, as they were before the suspension, or
since the resumption of specie payments.
Their suspension, under the circumstances,
was imperatively demanded by the best in
terests of the people. It prevented wide-spread
ruin. The inconveniences and losses occa
sioned by the suspension, when composed
with the disastrous results that would have
followed a r-fusal to suspend, are not worth a
moment's consideration.
So that, though a general suspension by
the banks of any country be confessedly a
great ivil, the govt rn men ts, the statesmen,
aud the people of all countries where these
institution exist, recognize a greater, an in
calculably greater, evil than suspension the
evil, that is, of lieing left without any circu
lating medium at all, or to little as to be un
worthy of the name, w hich would be the case,
were they to permit the gold to be all drawn
out of their bauks and bhipjn-d abroad, fur
any purpose or under any conceivable cir
cumstances. Then fore it Is, that the British government,
wheuevtr the alternative is j resent d ol a
suspension by the Bank of England, or an
exhaustive drain of gold for foreign shipment,
ever etuid ready to advise the Bank to sus
pend ! And in this country, w henever a like
alternative is presented, public opinion de
mand suspension iu a language too power
ful to be resisted the bauks and the public
und Ti-tuiding perfectly at the time, that the
peualiie provided in the charters in C v ol
suspension will uever be enforced, but be re
mittal by the j-pret-enUtiws of the people at
the tirt meeting of the State Legislatures
thereafter.
T'.Hi MiiuIWp;d at tint's ovr-f1ws Its
baa l t such au extent as to ocxaaiuti a vast
destruction of crops and other property. Yet
what plautt r who ow us and cultivates a portion
of its fertile bulioin lands, however severely be
may bar suffered from Iu occasional inun
dation, would be willing to at the river
dried up, or its course diverted throgb tome
other and distant channel? Great as are the
injuries inflicted by these overflows, they are
after all bat occasional and partial, and are
esteemed as insignificant; when compared to
the vast and incalculable advantages con
ferred by this mighty stream upon the mil
lions of prosperous people who inhabit the
great valley through which it flows.?
So with our banks. They occasionally
over-issue, and at times suspensions and
failures take place, but the aggregate of
losses and inconveniences thereby occasioned
to the community an are more to be compared
to the aggregate of benefits tbey have con
ferred upon the country, than are the losses
and inconveniences exr-ii-ne-d from the oc
casional overflows of the Mississippi to be
compared to the great, general and perma
nent benefits derived from its existence.

Antiquity of our SnlphurlSprlns aa
at Salt manufactory.
To the President and Member of the Historical
Society of Tennessee:
Gentlemen: Believing that it is the duty
of every citizen to do what may be in his
power to promote the interests and ohjects of
your honorable association; and as it seems
to be yonr o' ject to obtain information ofby
gone times, I have thought it proper to give
you a short account of the old tombs about
our Sulphurs Spring, which will carry us back
in imagination centuries before we bad any
historical information or reliable tradition
in regard to the ancient inhabitants of this
country and of their works that have been
erected (possibly) more than a thousand years
before the settlement of Nashville.
As to the inhabitants who lived in those
remote times, we can say but little of their
character, manners, or customs, and can but
believe that they were a simple and primi
tive people, living on the plainest diet, as
their teeth, still remaining, are all sound,
though their other bones will crumble to dust
by handling.
But to their works, which have resisted
the hand of time for centuries, I wish to call
your attention. Gentlemen, we will take a
walk to the Sulphur Spring! At the point
where we begin to descend towards the
Spring. I found (some years ago) a piece of
an earthen vessel neafly two feet long, and
if the entire original vessel corresponded in
curvature with the part of the circle found,
it would have measured twenty feet across
the top. The vessel was moulded in a large
basket, and made in the form of a large
bottle. It was then burnt or sun-dried until
it was fit for the uses it was intended to sub
serve. The impression of the basket it was
moulded in, is left, oa the outside of the
ware.
We will now go and take a drink of
Sulphur Water, and then proceed to the left
where the road was cut through the hill.
There may be seen furnaces of stone, which
probably, have not bad the light of the sun
upon them for a thousand years previous to
their late exposure. We will now proceed
along the hill towards the bath bouse until
we come to the spot where an old oak stood
a few years since; here are found more fur
naces. I promised to cany you back, in
restrospect, a thousand years, and now for
the proof Mr. James Tilford, who lived here
about twenty-five years ago, stated that
three had been salt made there one thousand
years ago, and that he could prove it by a
living witness. A wager of a suit of clothes
was made, and which was decided afterwards
in Mr. Til ford's favor; he having produced
his litnrg teitne.", upon the spot, in the
character of an Onktree, measuring five
feet in diameter, and its annular or an
nual rings or circles counting one thou
sand and fifty, corresponding to a like
number of yeari. This kind of proof has
so often been used in our courts of law to
establish a fact, aud always sustained, that
there are few, who will doubt its truth, at the
present time.
If that oak tree was one thousand and
fifty years old, it was proven by Mr. Tilford
that it grew long after the furnaces were
erected. It may be that it was hundreds of
years lefore the acorn fell which produced
the oak, that salt was made on that very spot
I may say with confidence that I have car
ried you back, retrops ctively, more than a
thousand years before our day aud genera
tion. In digging the foundation for the bath
house, there was thrown out. at the depth
of 8 or 10 feet, large quantities of pure ashes,
with burnt rock in abundance.
Go to the right of the bath house, and you
may dig out ashes and burnt rock, with a
stick, and here I may venture an opinion.
that the whole ridge is made up of ashes.
burnt rock, furnaces, and fragments of the
broken pots, in which they made their salt,
and at some remote period, perhaps thousands
of years ago, this place was a gently in
clined plane, from the present Brewery on
Jefferson Street, to tho Spring, and has taken
the form of the hill, by the continued ac
cumulation of the above mentioned materials,
from the earliest dawn of the human race.
Go down to the old mound near the River
at the mouth of Lick Branch, where Charle
ville, our first settler in 1714. lived and
traded with the Indians; and De Mont-Breun-Demumbrane,
Spencer, Holliday. and Robert,
son, made their encampment in later yearst
and you will sec hundreds of stone coffins con
taining the mouldering remains of a people
whose history is lost in oblivion.
But may we not bop? that by the investi
gations and researches of your society and
others, some light may be thrown on the
history of these long lost nations. With my
best wishes for the future prosperity and
usefulness of your Society.
I remain yours, very Respect fully.

The Comet's Round of Xrmvel.
Though much has already been published
respecting our recent distinguished visiter,
Dynati's comet,' there are many who will be
interested in the following extracts from an
article in the London Times, suggested by
the calculations of astronomers estimating
the time of this comet's journey round the
son at 2.595 years. The Times says:
Modern science established that the range
of our present visiter, ' though immensely
wide compared with our planetary propor
tions, is straitened indeed, compared with
stellar distances. He has his tether in the
attraction of the sun, as we have. He can
travel, indeed, 350 times further from the
snn than we can, and about 12 times further
than Neptune, the most distant and last dis
covered planet of our system; but even this
does not carry bim one-thousandth part of the
distance or tne nearest taxed star. Iet any
one take a half sheet of note paper, and mark
ing a circle with a sixpence in one corner of
it, describe therein our solar system, drawing
the orbits of the earth aud the interior planets
as small as be can by the aid of a magnifying
glass, it the circumference ot the sixpence
stands for the orbit of Neptune, then an oval
filling the page will fairly represent the orbit
of our comet, and if the paper be laid on the
pavement under the west door of St. Paul's,
the length of that edifice w ill inadequately
represent the distance of the nearest fixed
star. That the comet should take more than
2,000 years to travel round the page of note
paper we have supposed is explained bv its
great diminution of speed as it recedes from
the sun.
At its perihelion, as we have seen it move
lately, it has travelled 127,000 miles an hour,
or more than twice as fast as the earth, whose
motion is about a thousand miles a minute.
At its aphelion, however, or greatest distance
from the sun, the comet is a very slow body,
sailing along as if doubtful whether to return
at the rate of 480 miles an hour. This is
only eight times the speed of a railway ex
press. At this pace, even if the comet could
wholly shake of the attraction of the sun.
which it certainly could not, and were it to
travel onward in a straight line. the lapse of a
million years would find it still travelling
half way between our sun and the nearest
fixed star. Comets, then, can hardly be
imagined visiters from our system to any
other, or from any other to our owu. There
is every reason to believe they belong to us,
and are only planets of a lighter material,
less setth-d construction, more eccentric
orbits, and somewhat more devious paths than
our own solid globe. It is hardly possible to
look at tbem without seeing that they re
plenish, and perhaps vivify, the subtle
medium through which they diffuse their
bright products, and which offers a certain
resistance to their motion. As to danger of
colisiou, of blighting shower, or pernicious
breath, it is as nothing compared with the
thousand and one chances on which mortal
life depends. It always hangs on a thread,
and that thread is not weakened to the amount
of one fibre, by all the millions of comets
which a French philosopher calculates to
move in our system.
Inspector," the Washington corres
pondent of the N. V. Courier and Enquirer,
writes :
'The declining state of the revenues proves
that the whole of the twenty milliod loan will
be necessary, and that a;i" increase of duties
can alone avert the evils of a permanent
national debt. There is not much partizan
feeling on the subject, and the greatest
difficulty to be apprehended, when the ques
tion comes up for discussion ia Cougoess, is
sectional and geographical excitement. Direct
taxation will be suggested and will receive
the support of a small minority, especially of
that remnant of the nulificatiou aud secession
party, w ho hope to make the Uuion odious,
by making its burthens intolerable. The
taxation of tea and coffee has beeu suggested
as an effectual means of replenishing the Ex
chequer, but it ia likely to meet with but
little favor. The West will be found unani
mous against it. The controversy will
probably result in a substantial and practical
return to the svstem of 1842."

1 voI.,12mo. Cloth.
As a picture of one of the most familiar phases of
New York lire in the field of the middle millions,
"Blonde and Brunette" Is as true as it Is piquant- Its
landscapes are from nature, and its figures from lir
Inj? groups. There could scarcely be a novel with
less fiction; so real are all its scenes and incidents,
that it brings every reader face to face with some of
his dearest friends in the walks of kid and crinoline.
