. There can be no sacoemFul denial of the
assertion, that the test of good government
is the Btahlo prosperity of the peoplo ntl
their progressive improvement in morality
and intelligence. It matters not how per
fect may be the theory of the government,
if its administration does not Teduce that
theory to praotice the ends contemplated
by its authors cannot be attained. And
aa even a despotism may be fiiaJe tolerable
by a wise ruler, so the freest government
may become an intolerable despotism of a
corrupt majority over an enlightened
minority.' . '
With the best form of government yet
devised by man, what is the present con
dition of the American people? v Posses
ting unequalled enorgy, and blest with an
' - extent, and fertility of soil, and a variety
of climate unknown to any other people,
they have made rapid progress in physical
devolopement pressing forward agricul
ture, manufactures!and commerco with
unparalled success. " Cut, amost periodi
cally, revulsions occur, attended by wide
spread monetary troubles, wrecking the
fortunes of the rich and aggravating the
oppressions of. the poor.'. Is this to be
ascribed to a dofeot in the theory of the
government? Certainly not. ' Then what
is the cause? It is the mal-administration
of partizsn knaves, elevated to power by
corrupt, or partisan fools. This is the
plain english of the whole matter, and he
who sets out in search of any" other solu
tion, goca on a fool's errand.
But have we, as a people, improved in
virtue and political intelligence in a ratio
with our progress in physical science, and
our growth as a nation? JLook at the base
corruption that disgraces " .every depart
inent of tho governmentoriginating with
tho fedoral administration, polluting the
government of the States and permeating
the great body of the . people, until the
whole mass stinks in the nostrils of every
true-hearted patriot. Is it the fault of
our institutions that politicians mergo
country in self, and lie, fawn and flatter
for place and spoils or that the ballot
box has become the receptacle of illegal,
purchased and besotted votes? If the
form of the government ia in fault, the
error lies in giving too much licence to
fools who know not the value of liberty,
or how to preserve it. They become the
tools of knaves, and with official harpies
for rulers, and a nccklcss, irresponsible
constituency, tho government may well go
to the devil.
The wisest men and truest patriots that
ever confercd honor upon any country,
were they who fashioned our institutions;
but evon they, in thoir earnest zeal for the
broadest expansion of popular liberty,
erred in believing the people capable of
self-government, and that their own lofty
virtues would descend to the future rulers
of tho country. They framed a govern
ment for such men as themselves, and set
its machinery in motion, hoping that
patriotio virtue would ever guard against
its derangement, and (hat honest intelli
gence would oontrol and elevate tho masses
In short, they fashioned a government for
man as ho should be, and noi. as he is; and
whilst they did not, in practice, sanction
the subversive doctrines of the now domi
nant party, yet they left open the door
through which they have entered into the
polioy of tho government. Thirst for
olfieo and spoils tempted talents to sin
against truth and patriotism, and com
petition between unseruploua aspirants led
them to seek success by corrupting those
of easy virtue, and dcoieving those whoso
weakness is of tho head. The noxt step
was to increase thoir chances of success
by citonding the right of suffrage to the
floating masses a portion of whom hav
iii no fixed interests that engender pariotic
vigilance, and a portion unfitted by foreign
birth and education for the higher duties
of American citizen. This done, the
noxt step was to innltiply electivo office
to bo filled by political cormorant ; and
to this end, tho Judiciary was dragged
into the political arena, and its ermine
polluted by tho debasing association.

1ST The democrats, of -Boston, have
recently held a meeting and resolved that
the Banks are to ' blame for all the
pecuniary distress of the country. When
Gen. Jackson's quarrel with Nick Biddle
overthrew the U. 8. Bank, the democratic
States vied with each other in the mul
tiplication of Banks, and, in some in
stances they were made the depositories of
the federal treasure, and instructed to en
large their issues upon the faith of auch
deposits. The tariff compromise occured
about the tame time, and the two together,
by inflating the currency and stimulating
over-trade with foreign countries, brought
on the evil times of 1837 and subsequent
years. J. hen the same democratic ery was
heard from Maine to Georgia "the Banks
are to blame! Down with them I". Well,
if the Banks were to blame then, and the
democrats knew it, why didn't they abate
the evil? They have been almost con
stantly in power, and having the power to
uproot the evil, they are responsible for
ts continued existence. But then, at now,
it was raised to gnll fools and to throw the
responsibility off their shoulders. They
have been tho chief Bank-makers, yet use
them as a scape-goat, whenever their own
misdeeds bring ruin upon the country.

their orders from their masters, and have
not the spirit, even if they .had the will
to disobey. In the Senate, it is true, some
two or three members raised their voice
against the contemplated injustice; but
we have yet to learn that the lower House
can furnish one such example. A manly

men of tho locofoco party that it is th

THE POLICY Of THE BANK9. '.
It seems te be conceded, . on" all hands,
that the hope of relief from present em
barrassment, lies in the sale of . the large
crops with which the country is blessed.
But ta effect this tale, monetary facilities
are indispensable, and these can be furnish'
ed only by the Banks. Their suspension
has locked up the specie, and if, in ed
ition to this, the paper medium be cur
tailed, or be not enlarged, relief can not
be obtained, through the crops, to the ex
tent demanded by the exigencies of the
timet. It teems to ut, then, that the poli
cy of the Banks should be to discount
freely, upon a safe basis afford every
reasonable facilty for. carrying forward the
products of the country. . With prudence,
this may be safely done, and when dene,
et them gradually contract their circula
tion preparatory to resuming specie pay
menttaking care, all the while, to
strengthen themselvs by an enlargement
of their metallo basis, from such sources
as may be thrown open by the operation
f trade. '; . . h, .
A circulating medium, commensurate
with the wants of commerce,, every one
must Bee, ia an indispenaible; and when
' f '.. "a 'a a , a
specie is - witnarawn . trom circulation,
whether by Banks, or individuals, trade
must stagnate unless there be a representa
tive of the precious metals with a recog
nized value nearly equivalent This re
presentative is Bank-paper,- and if its cir
culation, be restricted simultaneously with
the withdrawl of specie, the consequences
must be more or loss ruinous to trade.
Whether suspension bo an evil, or not, is
not the question. . The problem , to be
solved is, 'whether that evil' will be in
oreasod, or diminished by contraction or
expansion during such suspension. Our
own opinion is, that a safe and liberal ex
pansion will be to the interest of the people,
whilst it is the duty of the Banks. Give
back, the specie, and bring everything to
the specie standard, at once, or give us so
much of its representative, as is essential
to a comparatively healthy trade. An un
due inflation of paper currency is, at all
times, an enormous evil; but there is a
happy medium that gives vitality to com
merce, and yet restrains that wild sperit
of speculation which charrcterises so many
of our people. Let the Banks find that
medium by feeling their way,, and thus
can they, without danger to themselves,
partially, at least, relieve the embarrass
monts of the country. t ..'
The news - from the commercial
cities falsify the predictions of an early
return of better times; indeed, the gloom
is deepening, and the prospects are that
the country, will have to pass through a
long and trying scene of distress. A sale
of. the crops for what they will bring, and
a rigid eoonomy are the readiest means of
present relief, and for the future, a radical
change in the policy of the federal ad
ministration. As the plaything of spoils
hunters, government affords no protection
to tho great interests of the country; and
so long as it is administred by knaves,
selected by fools, it will bo a curse rather
than a blessing.
tGf The Kentucky Banks declare they
will not suspend, and as Ions as mobs
prevent a run upon them they can hold
up. it is a novel mode, however, ot doing
business; but it ought to teach not to un
dervalue the currency of other Banks not

delighted at the promotion of Andy John

tho Senate has greatly degenerated, the

shorn him of his power to do mischief,
