As a pretext for this plundering expedition, they

call of the Speaker of the House. The House or
ganized and adjourned over till to-day, many of
the members not having arrived. We give tiie fol

the same aspect as it strikes others who have direct

in their present untoward course, or who are con

who do not admit that to drive tho banks to paying
specie, or to wind up their concerns, would be per
fect suicidal, and disastrous to the varied interests
ofthe whole rommunity."—[Newark Daily Adr.
