From the London Economist, October 24.
It is pome 8atiffa tion that, in the present junc
ture of affairs In the United States, recent change
of a sound and rational character has been made
in the French lav as it relates to the Bank of France,
the effect of which will be to aid, and not to nen-
tralize, as it has done on former occasions, the ef
forts of the Bank of England. Before the renewal
of the charter of the Bank of France in the pres
ent year, that establishment was prohibited by law
from charging more than fix per cent. d"ucount.
- Vbat was the effect of that restriction? Was It
any advantage to the trade of France? Money
being obtained opon lower tenna in Taria than
elsewhere, a conHtant drain was kept up on the
Bank of France, and gold supplied by forced op
erations from the Bank of England, ran through
the Bank of France, in a continuous stream and
thus, indirectW, in part, neutralized, at the cost of
the Bank of France, the natural effect of the re
strictive measures of the Bank of England. Now,
fortunately, that restriction is removed, and the
Bank of France is left at full liberty to follow the
market rate of discount The effect is, that al
ready, short aa the present pressure has been, the
rate of discount in Paris has been raided to 1 J per
This wholesome change is to this country, at the
present moment, extremely important. Suppose
the French law to have remained unalfered; and
the maximum rate of discount to have stood at six
per cent., it is certain tbat in place of 20,000 of
gold having been shipped to the United States in
the last week, a very large sum must have gone,
and have so reduced tha bullion in the Bank of
France, that a resort must have been had agHin,
and to a much greater extent, to those forced op
erations, by which gold could be obtained from
London, even though at a large sacrifice; and thus
the efforts of the Bank of England, in order to
protect the bullion reserve against the present ar
tificial demand in the United States, would have
been to some extent frustrated. As it is, the two
great baDks, which in point of fact lens or more
regulate the monetary transactions of Europe, will
sow act in harmooy, both following the natural
law of supply and demand, in fixing from time to
time the terms upon which, they will do business.
If any proof were required of the soundness of
these views, we have only to point to the very in
considerable amounts of bullion which, both from
France and England, have thus far been shipped
to the United States, notwithstanding the very low
rates of the exchanges.
But so far as regards the future, and the extent
to which it may be needful to pursue those meas
ures of restrictive self-defence, much, if cot every
thing, depends now upon the turn affairs may take
In the United States. Tbat ia the point upon "i
which all eves are turned. Much has been said

upon the subject of overtrading and al kinds of
general reasoning has been adduced to account for
it. On one band it is contended tbat too free a
commercial system baa induced to imports beyond
the means of payment; on another side it is said
that unrestricted bank credits have done all the
mischief. We place very little faith in the latter
reason; none whatever in the former. We have
Been in this country, and in many other?, periods
of great speculation, under all systems of commer
cial law, and under every system of monetary law.
We have had monetary panics and commercial
crisis under under the strictest protective system
and nndrr a system of comparative free trade
under the Bank Restriction act of 1796, under the
Cash Resumption act of 1819, and severely even
under the Bank act of 1844. Never was a whole
nation seised with a greater mania for rash and
improvident speculation than that which prevailed
in this country from 1845 to 1847. But tlii", at
least, can be said in favor of perfect freedom from
restriction; when a nation dot s mike a great mis
take, it is more easily and more quickly remedied
than when men's acts ere tramelled with vexa
tious interferences with the natural laws of com.
la the case of the United States at this time, if
by overtrading is meant an undue conversion of
floating into faxed capital in the formation of rail
ways and other public works, and an undue extent
of borrowing from foreign countries upon such se
curities, and most of all an extravagant f peculation
in shares based upon borrowed capital, audi as we
witnessed in England iu 1846, then we have no dif
ficulty in atst'Dting to the charge. But it by over
tracing is meant an excess of Importations and ex
portation, an excess of production and even
f consumption, we doubt if there is much,
if any ground for the assumption. Nor ia it
any proof tbat such has been the case, tbat numer
ous failures have taken place among importers and
other traders, or even tbat prices are for tha mo- .
tnent unnaturally depressed. LIow many in this
country in 1847, who, aa far as their legitimate
trade was concerned, would have been wealthy and
far beyond the reach of the crisis, were yet ruined
in consequence of their speculation in railway; and
how much property shared in the depression caused
by the general pressure, which was not in excess
of the legitimate requirements of the public. Look
ing only at the legitimate commerce of the United
States, we can discover no evidence of overtrading
in this sense of the term; and this, so fur as regards
the future prospects of the commerce and manu
factures of this country, is the most essential point
lor consideration. In 18S5 and 1826, preceding
the crisis of 1837, the state of the tn.de between
the two countries in this respect was very different.
At that time the value of our exports doubled in lit
tle more than a year. At this time there has been
no such sadden and speculative increase. It is
now some years since our exports to the United
States reached the maximum of 24,000,000 du
ring the last two years they have been 17,000,000
and 21,000,000 respectively, and so far as the
present year has gone, they promise to amount to
Considering then the great Increase of the real
productive population of tha United Sutesx the

there are no good grounds for believing in auy con

Xn. Sham Democracy on Incorpora
It will be remembered, daring the can
vass of last Summer, the democracy made
an appeal to the people on the subject o
incorporating joint stock companies; and it
was made a subject of very grevious com
plaint against our gubernatorial standard
bearer, that during his service in the Le
gislatnre he had voted for the incorpora
tion of such companies without subjecting
the property of the stockholders to the
honest debts of the company. It was said
that he and his party were for creating ar
tificial individualities, soulless corporations,
vast moneyed monopolies, which, while they
obtained the toil of honest mechanics and
laborers, were enabled to evade the pay
ment of just and honest debts.
The hollowness and Jiypocricy of these
appeals are now being exposed. The ques
tion was made in the House of Represen
tatives Tuesday and Wednesday, on a bill
to incorporate the Memphis and Hew Or
leans Telegraph Company. On the ques
tion of individual liability, there have been
four distinct positions assumed by promi
nent democrats of the House.
Mr. Dcnlap is for relieving the stock
holders from all liability save the amount
of their stock.
Mr Polk i3 for making the stockholders
individually liable for the debts of the
Mr. Thompson: is for making the stock
holders individually liable for the debts and
contracts of the Company (not for dama
ges) in proportion to their stock, after the
assets of the Company have been exhaust
Mr. Bradley is for making those who
are stockholders at the time of making any
contract (not those who were stockholders
before or after the contract) individually
liable "provided the Company was insolvent
at the date of the contract, and not other
wise. Each of these views seem to have their
fripnds. on the democratic side of the TTonsfi
and have been discussed at length. Dur
ing the discussion on Wednesday, Mr. Rich
ARDsox,the able Representative from Ruth
erford, called the attention of the opposi
tion to the attitude in which they were
placing themselves in before the country in
substantially the following brief and perti
nent remarks and inquiries:
"Mr. SriAKiR: We have here yesterday and
to-day a practical exemplification of what a party
will do when it is in the minority, and what it may
do when it is the majority. I have always conten
ded that the declaration of the democracy, that
they were a unit in principle and action, was a
humbug. The debate on yesterday and to-day has
shown that they are now (or some of them) repu
diating what they have heretofore proclaimed as a
principle, and they are actually now disputing about
what h Democracy.
Mr. Speaker: I now desire to know which ia the
Democratic position of the party, the one taken by
the Representative from Maury on yesterday, or the
one taken by the Joint Representative to-day, or
the one taken by the Representative from Bradley?
I again Bi my Democratic friends, lundtr which
King, Be'izoniati?' "
This is the course of a party, which with
all its boasting, boasts of nothing more
than of its consistency!

WALKER ACTUALLY GONE.
Wo donbt not, as we write, that Walker is
again upon tbe wave, and rolling towards vic
tory, or something not quite bo pleasant, in
Nicaragua. The fact that Gen. Walker had
given bond in the earn of $2000 to appear be
fore the United States Court, as a matter of
course, had no effect upon hia movements,
and we understand that he left yesterday with
the advance guaad, or first division of LU
army, with the view of falling in with the
transports eomewheres in Lake Borgne, and
at once proceeding to sea. Everything ap
pears to have been well condacted, and the
effort to etop the expedition has resulted like
all previoos similar ones in smoke.
The following commanication, from a mem
ber of the expedition, waa received by us this
morning, and contains, we believe, all the in
formation on the subject of the departure,
which is of any interest at present:
Editor Picayune Before this reaches you. Gen.
Walker will have left the United States on his way
bock to Nicaragua, with the first division of eiui
grauta. This division will number about three hun
dred and filty men, over two hundred of whom left
New Orleans. Of this number there are over thirty
officers and men who were with Gen. Walker in
Nicaragua. The officers are is follows:

Storming: and Capture of Delhi.
When I closed my last letter we had heard that
the heavy siege train was expected to reach tbe
camp in a very few days, and that works were be
ing erected wherein to mount the guns on their ar
rivsl. While the troops were thus busy the enemy
was inactive. There were none of those desperate
sallies from the city that characterised the early
days of the siege, when day by day successive waves
of muuny were shattered against tbe heights of the
Britiah position; and though their artillery was not
silent, tbe only success attained was on tbe eight
of the 1st of September when a shell from the bat
tery on the further side of the river (of which I
wrote in my last)burstamong a picket of the 6lst,
in front of tbe Metctlfe-bouee, killing two men and
and wounding seven. On the morning of tbe 4th
arrived in camp the long looked-for siege train of
oetween thirty and forty heavy guns, bowitzers and
mortars, with large quantise of ammunition, escort
ed by tbe remaining wing of the 8th foot, two more
companies of the 61st.. and a wing of the 1st Be-
loocn battalion of the Bombav army. On the 6th
came in from Meerut a most valuable reinforcement
in 200 of the 60th rifles and 100 Artillery recruits,
To the latter were added 45 men of the 9tb Lan
cers. The place of this detachment was supplied
at Meerut by the 7th Putiiaub Infautry.

tended for the destruction of the Moree bastion and
tbe adjacent curtain were armed with 10 heavy
guns at about 650 yards from tbe bastion, and an
enclosure within half that distance of the walls,
called the Koodsea Bagh, was occupied by a de
tachment of infmtrv and artillery. In these opera
tions we sustained a loss of something under fifty
killed and wounded, two officers being among the
former Lieuta. Hildebrand, of the Bengal Artil
lery, and Baunerman, of the Bombay Fusiliers, at
tached to the Beelooches, the latter a promism
young officer, well known to myself and to many
people here, and by all regretted. The next day
was marked by the opening of the advanced batte
ries on tbe Moree ba9tiou, by tha arrival incarcpor
the Juminoo or Cashmere Coutingent. Meanwhile
the engineers were hard at work in the erection of
other batteries. On the 11th a mortar battery
opened on the Moree from the KooJsea Bagh at a
little more than 300 yards, and upon the Castimre
and Water bastions a fire was commenced from six
teen heavy guns and howitzers and ten large mor
tars, planted at two points front ot the enclosure.

rently to eight of the former and twelve of the lat

Tho fire of the enemy was most severe upon the
last named batteries, which were exposed not only
to the euna of the Watr bastion, but to those
the old inner fort of Selunghur, and also to those on
the other side of the river. Here Captain Fasan,
of the Artil'ery, described as a most enterprising
and excellent officer, fell, shot through the head.
No other f.ital casualty occurred among the officers
during these days, nor does the general loss appear
to have been severe, considering the proximity of
the batteries to the walls, and the tenacity of the
defence, the enemy keeping up a vigorous fire of
mu-ketry from rifle-pits and patches of jungle, even

and had Ioiil' ceased to return a shot to the fire that
waa continuailv kept up upon it. The adjoining
curtains on either side were similarly ruined, and
from the debris of the Moree bastion only a liiht
gun or two at intervals replied to the heavy shot
and shell that were Doured into it. At the ottur
end of the works the Water bastion hid suffered
scarcelv I;ss severely, its extreme magazine was
blown up, and a light gun which enfiladed our bat
teries had been silenced. And now, the moment
for the apsault drawing near. General Wilson pro
mulgated an excellent order, in which he 8iys he
"need hardly remind the troop oi the cruel mur
der committed on their officers and comrades, ss
well as their wives and children, to move them in
the deadly strugsle. No quarter should be given
to the mutineers: nt the Same time, for the suke
of humanity, and the honor of the country they bp
lonsr to, he calls upon them to spare all women and
children that may come in their way.
On the morning of the 14tb, soon alter daybreak,
the assault took place. The attacking columns were

the following day, by an officerof rank in thearmy,
which, though short, is, as far as I know, the only
communication of so late a date that has yet reach
ed Bon. bay three in number, one being held, as I
understand it, in reserve. Their strength is not
given. The main point of assault was the breach
at the Cashmere bastion. One column, howev. r,
consisting of Ghoorkas and the newly arrived Jum-
moo contingent, was directed to make a diversion
bv attacking the Kishengunge suburb which lies
outside the Lahore gate on the Weetean side of the
city, and if it succeeded in carrying the suburb, to
assault the gate itself. But the suburb waa occu
pied by the enemy in force, with a battery of heavy
tuns. The Cashmerean troops behaved indiffer..
ently, and in spite of the efforts of the brave
Ghoorkas the column was repulsed. Its command
ing officer. Major ReiJ, of tbeSirmoor battalion, is
among the wounded of the day; but on tha North
ern side of the city all went well. The troops en
tered at the breach with no serious opposition, and,
spreading to the left and right, occupied the whole
line of defences from the Water bastion to the Ci
bul gate, including the Cashmere gate and bastion,
the Moree gate and bastion, the English church,
Skinner's house, and tbe grounds about.
Tbe principal loss sustaiued by the assailants was
due to the obstinate resistance they met with in
clearing their way along the ramparts to the Cabul
gate, and alterwards in an attempt to penetrate be
yond tbat point into the denser parts of the city
in the direction of the Jumna MusjiJ. In all the
loss amounted to about COO killed and wounded.
Five officers are reported to have been slain
Tandy, of the Bengal Engineers; M'Barnet, of the
late 65th Native Infantry; Murray, of the Guides;
Hradr.hw, of the 521 root; and itzgerald, of the
75tli; Cant. Rosse, of the Carabineers, Mai. Jacob
of the 1st Bengal Fusileers, and Lieut. Ilomfray,
1st l'ui'jiub Infantry, are returned us having died
of wounds received. Brigadier Nicholson was
wounded, snd bis brother, ot Coke's R fl s, and
many others, in all about SO. Of the loes ct the
nniineers I do not observe even an estimate. It
is only said that bodies of them were seen to be
retreating both to the south of the city in tiie di
rection of Kootub, snd also scrota the bridge of
boats, and that our cavalry had moved round the
city to intercept and destroy the former.
Our victorious infantry, prudently recalled fron
too hat-ty an advance into the i lose lanes of the citv.

ua by his name, to the natives as Seeunder's.
Preparations were at once made for sbelliug tho
enemy out of the Palace, the Selitngbur, and the
other strong places of the city, aud the firing
commenced next morning, the 15th. By the eve
ning of that day a breach waa effected in the
all of the magaziue enclosure, which was held

Palace biing now well exposed the guns sud mor
tars opened ou it from the magaziue enclosure, and
the enemy appears to bavs fallen back at all points.
Thus the Kishengauge battery, which had repuls
ed the Juuiiiioo troops, was aban toned and occu
pied, and the guns there taken swilled th total
number of captured pieces to upwards of 200.
The battery on lb further aide of the river seems
also to have been abandoned, aud at tha date of
the latest certain and official news 1 P. M. ou the
lrtih an stuck upon the magazine had been re
pulsed, a chaiu of posts had beeu e.-ta'.lih.-d from

fused to every sepoy. All this ia so satisfactory
that wa may well credit the tale from Joy pore, that

assuranc s from Mr. Buchanan and membersof his
Cabinet that the Federal Government would oppose
no obstacles to bis return, with or without ao es
cort, to tbe country from which he had been unlaw
fully dragged by an officer of the American Gov
ernment. Indeed, Gen. Walker having been r
moved from Nicaragua, where he was the head of
the only existing Government in that country, by
the unauthorized and high-banded interference of
Captain Davia, of the United States Nay, it waa
the equitable duty, at least, of the American Gov
ernment, to remedy the wrong thus inflicted by
one of its officers, by restoring him, as nearly as
might be, to the situation in whh h he was found
by Captain Davia. Such was understood to ba the
opinion of General Cass, especially, openly or ta
chly asseuted to by the President.
If, then, it was the doty of the Government to
restore Walker to Nicaragua, for a much stronger
reason it was its duty to permit hi3 voluntary return
thither, as a citiz- n of Nicaragua, temporarily re
sident in the United States; and it was doubtless
in view of such facts and reasons as above present
ed, that assurances were tendered by th9 President
and Cabinet to General Walker that he would not
But notwithstanding all this, we never lost faith
in the strong constabulary instincts and propensi
ties of the Federal Government. We were con
vinced that it would not let so favorable an oppor
tunity pass as the expected departure of General
Walker for Nicaragua, without distinguishing itself
as chief detective and head jailer of the country,
and thus meriting the approbation of Eugland,
France, Spain, and all tbe rest to whom American
fillibusteriog is the standing bugbear of the times.
We were not surprised, therefore, when the Ad
ministration some time back issued its anti-fi'libus-tering
orders to its officers at the varioaa ports of
Nor were we surprised when the other night
Gen. Walker was arrested in such hot haste by a
Deputy Marshal of the city, upon the affidavit of
three of Collector Hatch's employees in the Custom-house.
The proceedings in this case we pub
lish iu another place. It will also be seen, in an
other column, tbat the emigrants who had prepar
ed to accompany Gen. Walker left the city yester
day by the Pontchartrain Riilroid, and it is proba
ble will embark upon tbe steamer Fashion at Ship
Island, or ia that neighborhood.
Gen. Walker also left yesterday in the snrae di.
rection, and we do not think it likely that he will
return in answer to his bond on the 17ih inst., un
less it should prove inconvenient for him to em
bark for Nicaragua at this time.
Such is tbe last chapter illustrating the excess
ive international comity of our Federal Govern
ment, and the extreme energy it is always ready to
display in carrying out the policy of how-not-to-Jo
it, and how to keep others from doin it.
It is one of tho commentaries we have thus fjr
upou the Ostend Manifesto and the Cincinnati
Plitform. N. O Delta, Xov. 12th.

TO MV in OTHER.
The following lines are touchingty beautiful. We have
seen nothing of late th t has bo moved our sympathy. The
man whs can write tuch poetry, who has such tho ghts,
cannot ba utterly deprared. The curse of intemperance,
with ita af. ending downward influence, has here done its
work, and a sp i it noble and generous, that might sod should
be tbe pride and orn&men'. of the social circle, is now the
degraded convict ia the walls of a penitentiary. How will
that fond mnhtr's hert bl ed, if she s iall hear of her
darling bo , the inmate of a prison, in a foreign land !
I've wander'd far from thee, mother,
Far from m happy home ;
I've 1 ft the land that gave me birth,
In other chm. s io r. am ;
And t.me, ince tl.en.haa roli'd its years
And mark'a them on my brow ;
Yet, I have often though of thee
I iu thinking of th e now.
I'm thinVing on the day, mother,
When, at ray tender side.
Tou watch'd the dawning of my youth,
And wi.s'd me in yur pride ;
Thrn brightly was my heart li. up
With hope of future joy,
W hile your bright fa-.cy honours wove
To deck thy darling boy.
I'm thinking of the day, mother,
When, with such anxious care.
You lifted up your heart to Heaven
Your hop-, you r trust waa- there :
Fond memory b'ingj tny parting worda,
Wh le tear roli'd down your cheek;
Thy long last, lov;ng look told more
Than e.er words could spea.
I'm far away from thee, mother 'r
No friend U near me now,
To soothe me with a tender word
Or cool my burning brow ;
The dearest t es affection wove
Are all now torn from me ;
They left me when the trouble came :
They did not love like thee.
I'm lonely and forsaken now,
L'npit ed and unbleit ;
Yet still I woul l not have thee know
liow sorely I'm distrefs'd.
I know you would not chide, mother,
You would not give me b'ame ;
But soo he me wi h our tender words,
And bid me hope again.
I would not have thee know, mother,
How brightest hope- d.-cay ;
The tempter with hi, baleful cup
lias dash'd them all away;
And thanie bas left its ver.ora stlng,
To rack with anguish wild
Yet, still I would net have ihee know
Ihe sorrows of thy child.
Oh! I have warder'd fur mother,
fcince I deserted thee,
And left thy tru tint' heart to break,
Beyond the deep blue sea.
Oh ! mother, still I l-.ve ihee well,
And long to heir theespeik,
And feel again thy bahnv breath
Upon my careworn cheek.
But, ah ! there is a thoupht, mother,
Pervades my beating breast,
That thy freed spirit may have flown
To its eternal rest ;
And while I wipe the teat away,
There whispers in my ear
A voice, that -peak- of heaven and thee,
And bids me .ieek thee there.
