Blinking Capital*
Misrepresentations, um rcgaids banking capital,
their circulation and loan«, are constantly being
put forth in certain of the Northern and Southern
print*, and the facts drawn from them at war with
the plainest rule» of arit.unetic. To accomplish
their ends—the destruction of all banks, howevr
safe and well managed—they unblnshingly per
vert the most reliable statements, and substitute
high class figures of their own, for those growing
out of the transaction, varying in amount from 75
to 100 per cent. They possess the singular faculty,
too, of never committing a mist-ike in favor of the
solvency of a bank, let the valuable and available
capital of the institution be ever so much greater
than its circulation and discounts. The discrep
ancy, of which the following article complains, is
a modest one, in comparison with thousands almost
daily published for party purposes, exhibiting, ?.s it
does, only 54 per cent, less solvency than the New
Jersey banks actually possess :
New Jersey Banks —A money article, recently
in a New York paper, by many considered oracular
on matters of finance, makes a direct attempt to
injure the credit of the banks of this State. After
a statement in columns of their circulation, dis
counts and specie, taken, apparently, from the re
turns published in this p 'per, the writer proceeds
to say :
" The banking capital of New Jersey on the 1st
January, 1851, was $3,754,900, but little more than
one half the amount of loans and discounts. The
proportion of specie on hand to bills in circulation,
able exhibit, and confirms the impression we have
long had, that the bank* of New Jersey are by no
means in a safe or sound position.
There is here a criminal mis-statement, or at
least, criminal carelessness on inch a subject, if not
at the time of writing the article, at any rate, in
suffering it »o go uncorrected. The columns of
ligures preceding this slanderous fling, are footed
up as follows :
Discount*. Circulation. Specie
»7 .158.997 93.tki7.908 $ii^.885
If these figures were correct, the proportion of
specie to circulation is 1 to 6—instead of 1 to ÜÜ.
But the figures are not correct. The Daily Adver
tiser, which was evidently !>efore the writer of that
article, in the table therein published, fools up the
column of circulation, as it came from the office of
the Secretary of State, and rightly, at S3,046,958,
a difference of 6000,000 ; showing that the prnpor
t on of specie to the circulation was 1 to £1 89, or
t lereabout.
But this is not all. With a capital of $3,754,900
it seems the Jersey Banks have only $3,046,958
circulation—an excess of capital over circulation of
S707,94 ; -2. With great deference to our Wall street
financiers thi* hardly shows our banks unsafe.
But why did not this financial critic print the full
returns of the Jersey banks? That return shows

Owkntown , February 9,1851.
The vicinity of Owentown was last night the
scene of a most bloody and fatal trag» dy. Abner
listes, and his brother-in-law, H. iî. listes, living
near neighbors, had quarreled, and last night about
dark the former walked over to the residence of the
latter and announced that he had come to eifect an
amicabfe settlement of their difficulty. II. Ii.
Estes expressed his entire willingness, and invited
Abner into the yard. So soon as he entered, how
ver, he made hostile demonstrations, and advanced !

rapidly upon H. B. Estfs. Iiraudisliing a large knife, i
stepping into his door, seized his rille,
gun warning a cap failed to Hre. A brief strngg'e
ensued between the parties over the gun, but H.
B. Estes succeeded in keeping it, and ejected his
assailant from the house. Abner approached the
house from an opposite door, and was fired at by
his antagonist, but it did not retard the rapid ad
vance of Abner ; he then drew from his pocket a
six-barrel revolver, and fired twice. Abner Estes
still advanced upon his adversary, and seizing him
with the desperation of frenzy he buried his knife
deep in his abdomen, lacerating the viscera and in
dicting a frightful and fatal wound. The assassin,
when he had done the deed, bounded off into the
darkness, and it was supposed lie had escaped un
hurt He was found next morning, however, in
an adjacent field, dead !
The writer has just returned from the scene of
blood. The spectacle beggars description. In an
open field, distant fifty yards from the place of com
bat, cold in death, lay the giant form of one of the
combatants, clotted with gore, the three balls hav
ing taken deadly effect—the " pitiless storm"
pouring down upon him in torrents, his death
dealing knife by his side, and his eyes strained to
their utmost tension, still glassy with rage. II. li.
Estes is dying at the time of writing. A trageJy
so sudden, so bloody and fatal, has app alled the
whole community. They have both left wives and
children to mourn their loss. Abner Estes was a
man of abandoned habits. H. B. Kstes was a quiet,
unobtrusive man, and a good citizen.

far superior to the English, as is admitted by all
practicul engineers.

the American citizen, Edward Stifl', whom we

years iri the " chain gang," for having been found

"He seems to be intelligent, and possesses a con
siderable fund of information upon all mailers of
business, and, withal, so groat a want of prudence,
that at times iid appears deranged and unable to
make application of it to his own affairs. If he
has family and friends in the United States, they
may be fble to relieve hirn, through the influence
of the Spanish Minister at Washington, especially
if he has been liable to derangement of intellect
from other cau-es than intemperance."

The First and Last Fatal jel in Illi
nois .—In the year 1820 a duel was fought in
Belleville, St. Clair county, between Alphonso
Stewart and Win. Bennett. The second.? had
made it up to be a sham duel ; Stewart, one of the
parties, was supposed to be in the secret, but Ben
nett, his adversary, believed it to be a reality.. It
is supposed that Bennett somewhat suspected a
trick, and after receiving his gun from his second,
rolled a ball into it. At the vv rd fire, Stewart fell
mortally wounded. Bennett was indicted, tried,
and convicted for murder. A great effort was
made to procure him a pardon, but Gov. Bond
would yield to no entreaties, and Bennett suffered
the extreme penalty of the law, by hanging, in
the presence of a great multitude of people.
This was the first and last duel which has ever
been fought in the State by any of its citizens.
The hanging of Bennett made duelling discredita
ble and unpopular, and laid the foundation of that
abborence of the practice, which has been felt and
expressed by the people of Illinois.
Guatemala and San Salvador .—The pres

York Tribune of the 11th says : " We last night
received intelligence from Washington, which in
dicates that the Administration is fully awake to
the present interesting p< sture of Central Ameri
can affairs. The Chevalier Gomez, late Lmvoy to
Borne, from the States of Guatemala and San Sal

the desire of the Administration, as our corres

the duties of Chargé for those States, and has ad
drefsed a long letter to Mr. Webster in reference
to the present condition and relations of the Cen
tral American States. Mr. Webster has replied
in a letter, expressing the views of our Govern
