and will undotibtcdly redeem every dollar dc-
posited with them. But when their currency
has gained credit, and such shinsplaters have
become familiar to the country, may not other
brokers likewise avail themselves of one half
of one per cent, on ready money deposited in
like manner; and if the thing is continued, how
many hundred thousand dollars may be found
in circulation and no body to redeem them. Our
State would soon.be as bad a fix as Ohio, where
nothing but shinplastcrs can be bad in exchange
for a $5 dollar gold piece.
4th. It reminds us of the guardianship of the
Bank of Missouri. That by the doirmatical
holdings of the so-called Democratic Party, lhat
UunU has. been constrained, against the better
judgment of the immediate Directors, to withhold
its aid, in tho ejection from the State, of the dir
ty, dingy and counterfeit shinplastcrs of oth
er Suites pay, to encouraire and sustnin nMi
"currency " by refusing to furnish a substitute,
and to aid in sending it home in limbo, when
found within ber borders. The Bank of Mis
souri in this matter, is the best ally an J friend of
brokers and shavers.
5lh.' The absence of sufficient bankinc capi
tal" reminds us, that under the provisions of our
Constitution we can have but one Bank, and
that the capital is limited to five millions of dol
lars; but the actual capital in tbe Bank of Mis
souri is only about two millions, upon which
she has dono business to the amount of six
millions; when, if any efforts had been used, the
capital stook could have been increased to five
millions, and sjie could have done equally as
saFca business to the amount of fifteen millions.

one doubts, or can doubt that this amount of
bankingeapital in the State would have expel-
led more of the shinplastcrs from Ohio, Indiana
and Ksntujky. '
6th. By this device, wo nre reminded that the
Bank of Missouri is near the close of its political
existence; and that provision must soon be made
for its final dissolution, or its rc-chartcr. Ev
en now it is said that the Mother Bank is reti
ring 10 per cent, each six mouths of the Branch
Paper, but by what authority, and for what!
purpose, we know not. The effect will ccr
tainly not be to banish shinplasters, nor to cir
cumscribe the business of brokers.
7th. If Messrs. Page &. Bacon should, as ad
vised, issue 'a hundred or two thousand of
these certificates," and other private bankers,
as good, or not so good, should avail themselves
of the same privilege, the circulation would soon
