The Kal. amazoo Mutual Insurance Company, in. corporated for the purpose of insurance against fire, in the fit a to of Michigan, is now in success, ful operation. Their offico is in tho village of Kalamazoo, and it is their intention to establish an agency in every villago throughout the stato, to receive tho applications of persons wishing to associate with them. Tho principles of such a comoanv. whon un derstood cannot fail to commend themselves to tho favor of tho public. It is not a moneyed monopoly ; nor is there, nor can there be, any money.muking scheme connected with it. It is nothing more nor less than a voluntary associa. tion of individuals plcdgod to bear each other's losses in just and equitablo proportions, or, in other words, to " help ono another." livery man rvho insures in this Company, bo- comes a member of it, and is directly interested in its prosperity. At tho time or making his ap plication, he is roquircd to give his note, with approved security, for the premium of insuranco, and which is called his " premium note." Tho rato of the premium is governed by tho amount insured and tho hazard of the risk : For in- stanca, if a farmer wishes to insure $500 upon his barn and contents, tho rate of which is 4 1-2 per cant, ha gives his noto (not on interest) for $22 50, six per cent of which, $1 35, is paid at tho time ; and until a loss is sustained by tho Company, ho is not required to pay any further premium during tin continuance of his insurance, which is in all cases for six years, thus it will bo perceived, tho capital of the Com. pany is made up of its " premium notes," which will always be sufficient in amount to indemnify against any loss that may happen. And the ad. vantage of this system over other companies, to tho person insured, consists in this, that instead of paying the cash for his premium, he gives his note, ana may never be callod for payment of it, except in case of losses, and even then by small instalments, in the one case he pays a cash pre mium to swell the coffers of a rich monopoly, and to enlarge the dividends of wealthy stock, holders ; Whereas, by the plan of mutual in. surance tho persons insured aro the only stock, holders, and tho individual saves in his own pocket, what by the other plan ho is roquircd to pay out of it. The practical operation of this system of insurance has been tested in Vermont and other Eastorn states, and tho result has boen a saving to -bo insured of an average of three quarters of tho amount usually required to insure in stock companies. The Company invito the public to como for. ward and partake of, as well as contribute to the advantages derived from mutual assistance. All communications may bo addressed tothosoc rotary, at Kalamazoo, who will give all necessary information to agents and others. JAMES SMITH, Jr., President. Z. Platt, Secretary.

The committee appointed by tho Demo cratic State Convention at Ann Arbor, to preparo an address to tho people of this state, respectfully beg leave to submit the following : ADDRESS. -To the Democratic Republican Electors of Michigan. The delegates appointed by you to meet in convention at Ann Arbor, on the 20th of July, to nominate democratic candidates for Governor, Lieutenant Governor and Representative to Congress, having per. formed tho trust committed to them, beg leave to submit some of the considerations by which they were governed, together with a few remarks upon the leading polit ical questions which now agitato tho public mind. The principal subject which at this timo engages the attention of politicians through out the United States, is the regulation of the currency, tho derangement of which has led to much pecuniary embarrassment during the present year. The causes which have produced this deplorable condition in our financial affairs, are ascribed by one class of politicians to certain measures of tho late administration of tho general gov ernment ; but intelligent and candid men of all parties attributo it to overtrading and speculation induced by overbanking. Tho history of the commercial world is full of examples showing similar results from similar causes. By overbanking, we mean the excessive issue of paper money beyond the common or necessary wants ot business, and out of the power of tho banks to re. deem on demand for payment. That the banks of this country are obnoxious to the charge of the most imprudent over-issues of their notes, tho general and continued suspension of specie payments by them, is conclusive evidence. And that overtra ding and speculation have resulted from this overbanking, and caused the pecunia. ry embarrassments which your country is now suffering, we will not insult your understandings by endeavoring to prove. The immense , surplus revenue of t last year, accumulated by execssivo iinporta. tions of foreign goods, and extravagant purchases of public lands, affords ample and decisive testimony on mis poim. If. then, tho derangement of the curren. cy and tho consequent embarrassments in tho money market, have their proximate i .1 ; ! . -. j cause in overoanmng, me inquiry uaiuiui ty arises, from what did that originate! The correct answer to the question is, that it has proceeded from the injudicious legis lation of Congress and the States. In our deliberations jipon tho subject, wo have al. ways regarded tho creation of a national bank as the fountain head of tho evil. Tho establishment of that institution and making its notes by law adequate to specie as a federal currency, planted- tho thorns of which wo are now reaping tho bitter fruit. The Bank may justly bo denounced as tho tarent of the evils of paper money in tho Tnited States, for it is under its fostering care that tho banking systems of the indi vidual states have grown up, until tho wholo havo burst with such disastrous con. sequences upon tho present prosperity of tho country, naa me acmocratic pany succeeded at tho outset, in its opposition to tho establishment of a national bank and tho government from its origin to the pres. cnt time, had collected ana paid out the public moneys in the constitutional curren. cy of gold and silver, wo should never have witnessed tho derangement of the cur rency, and the fluctuations in tho value of the great staple products 01 our industry, which this cquntry has toq qftpn had occa sion to suffer and dcploro. The business of state banking wquld then havo beencqn fined to its proper sphere ; its paper would have been found only in tho channolj of commerce, to which it legitimately bolongs and millions of tho capital now invested in bank stock, (to derive large profits from which the institutions are stimulated to ex ccssive issues of their notes,) would havo been employed in agriculture, or manufac tures, or building canals, or rail-roads, or other local improvements, ecuallv nroduc. tive to tho capitalist and incalculably moro beneficial to the general and permanent in terests of tho community. Tho opponents of the administration are i? . now striving iur uio csiuuiisrimcnt oi a na tional bank, as a remedy for tho disordered currency which we now experience. It gives us much satisfaction to know, what we navo learned irom tho history of tho past, that such efforts cannot bo success, ful. That a national bank, whose notes should bo mado a legal currency in the payment of public dues, might havo a tern porary efTect to alleviate existing embarras mcnt3, is possible ; but we believe that the main fold evils of such an institution would altogether outweigh every consideration of ua uuvumuges. jliio nisiory oi ino late United States Bank for the few years just previous to tho termination ofits existence, holds out in characters of bold relief to the American people, an impressive warn ng against tho establishment of another institution. There is too much reason to believe that had any other man than An. drew Jackson been at the head of our pub lie affairs during that eventful period of our history, the government of the People would have been too weak against tho government of the Bank. We mean no disparagement to other public men when wo say, that it required all the sacracitv. tho firmness tho popularity and tho disregard of conso- quenccs tor a laithlul and energetic uw charffo of public duty which distinguished tho Hero of New Orleans, to withstand tho moneyed power which so boldly beset his administration. And with such an exam ple before their eyes, tho American peoplo would bo recreant to tho trust committed to them by their fathers to bo handed down unimpaired to succeeding Fenerations, if they should again exposo tho principles of iiDeny lor wnicti they lought, to be subdued and crushed by the power of incorporated wealth, shielded from responsibility to the government of tho people, by tho aristocra tic panoply of "vested rights." A leading statesman of the opposition onco exc!?.'mod in tho warmth of a popular harangue, "give us war, pestilence, lamine or any other scource than military rule." and with how much more propriety and justico may the 1 r.L-Tl!.-J ' t . jiuujjiu oi uiu unueu oiaies invoito upon their country all theso evils rather than hazard its subiection to tho moro ignoble rule of the irresponsible government of a bank. In thus expressing our unqualified disap probation of the schemo of establishing a nother national Bank, wo must not bo un- dcrstood as waging war against the whole credit system. This system, which has grown up to its present strength with our improvement, has become so closely united und interwoven with tho whole trado und business of tho country, that its immediate destruction would inflict an incurablo and unnecessary wound upon the prosperity of our people. It is in a great measure to the credit system stimulating the enterprise of our citizens in tho developcmcnt of tho vast resources ot our territory, that tho West owes its rapid advances in population and wealth, and a continuance of the system un der proper guards and regulations, will ma terially promote our future growth and pros perity. In giving this expression of our sentiments in favor of tho system, it must not bo understood as our opinion that it re quires no modification or improvement. Our motto in relation to tho credit system is, let it de rsESERVED and LET IT BE REFORMED. Tho great desideratum now to bo attain- ed in tho improvement of the currency is, to increase tho specie and diminish tho pa per, which now constitute our circulating medium, ihe most desirable modo of ef fecting this great object would be, to with draw small notes from circulation and fill up tho channels in which thoj flow, with gold and silver. It has long been estab lished as a sound maxim in political econ omy, that coin and bank notes of tho samo denomination will not circulate together, but that the puper will dr;vo the precious metals from tho field. If, therefore, wo would have tho silver dollar circulate free ly, we must prohibit tho issuing of bank notes of that amount. Jt wo would have the quarter eaglo flying from hand to hand, we must strike out of circulation bills below five dollars and so of coins and bills of a iarger denomination. But thcro aro great obstacles in tho way of accomplishing this important and necessary reform. Depend, ing, as tho result would, upon tho legisla tion of tho several states, it would require tho co-operation of each in tho samo mca. sure, to obtain tho desired end. Expcri. enco has shown that separate stato legisla tion for this purpose, will go but littlo to words effecting a practical reform. In or der to accomplish this leading mcasuro of the friends of a sound and uniform curren cy, tho peoplo of tho several states should demand of their respectivo legislatures a co-operation, in providing by law for tho gradual suppression of small bills from is sue and circulation within their limit?. Nor should they fail to urgo the importanco of tho measure upon tho attention ot tno DanKs themselves. If those institutions, in tho spirit of a just and patriotic regard for the popular will, would voluntarily and unitedly agroo upon a gradual withdrawal of thefr small bills, they would recommend them, selves strongly to tho favor and confidence of tho country. We cannot conclude our remarks upon general politics, without congratulating our tolitical friends that the government of the Tnion is in tho samo political hands, which, with a slight exception, has guided its des tinios fqr tho last thirty seven years, Du ring that eventful penod, our cquntry has passed through rqany trying times, brought upon it by tho operation of measures estab lished by tho federal party in tho day qf its power. But thanks be to the people, wo nave, in putting down the national ban It, cut olr the last head of tho hvdra which fxl eral domination engendered in our rcnub lican system. The government will now bo administered upon plain democratic prin ciples and in the spirit with which it was established by odr fathers. Fortunately for our country, wo have at its head a stated man of tho old republican schdol, sugacioiT prudent, firm, energetic, and every way fit ted for tho times : and the peoplo may re- ly confidently upon tho assuranco that he win oe lound equal to any political cmer gency. For ourselves, wo look forward trustingly to his administration for measures soon to bo adopted, which will ensuro to tho country a quick return of prosperity : not a seeming prosperity, resting fur sup port on bubbles which will explode on the first slight shock in tho commercial world, but substantial prosperity, gradual in its advances and durable in its strength, upon wnicn tno "papers piutus may thunder in vain. In turning to the local politics of Michi gan, and tracing the riso and progress of panics irom me nrst step towards tho lorm ationofour constitution to the present time wo find much causo for congratulation that tho democratic party has had the ascend ancy in our councils. In looking for tho fruit of its success, it rnay bo found in tho liberal principles of our constitution--an instrument which will immortalize the De mocratic Convention which framed it, as tho authors above all otlters for tho princi. ties it inculcates, and the freedom it secures, t may bo found in the rapid settlement and improvement of our territory with an intel. ligent and enterprising people, rich in the rewards of their labor, and happy in the consciousness that they live nnder one of the most liberal and beneficent political systems of the ace. It may bo found in our broad projected system of internal im. provement, which, embracing all sections of the stato in tho benefits it contemplates promises to make our peninsula the garden of tho west. It may be seen in our admi- rablo Iaw3 for tho accumulation and invest ment of our munificent resources for edu cation, constituting a system which will make our primary schools free to the youth of Michigan. It may bo found in our gen eral system of banking, which is based up on tho soundest genera! principles, and v'ncii, wiin sucn iurmcr provisions lor tno publicsccurity as experience will soon sug gest; will render it the most safe and popu lar system of banking, which has ever been adopted. In fine, the result of tho ascend ancy of the democratic party may bo found in every public mcasuro which has raised Michigan f;om an unregarded territory of the general government to her present po sition as an equal and prosperous member of tho Union. Hal the federal party dur ing this time been predominant in ourcoun- cils.how different probably would have been our condition. Instead of being what wo now are, a flourishing member of tho con federacy, wo should most likely have re- i a i i if maineu yci a poor anu ucgraucu province, distracted with internal dissensions, without prosperity at homo and without character or credit abroad. Or even had wo now been under a constitution moulded by their hands, it would have been unworthy of tho times and unsuited to the republican spirit of our people. Instead of tho liberal fea tures which now adorn it. it would have been disfigured with aristocratic paovisions the right of suffrage would havo been do tcrmined by anti-republican tests, and a largo class of tho intelligent population which now enjoy within our borders a hap. py homo and make our fields blossom like the rose, would have been driven to seek a refuge under the auspices of more republi. can institutions. In order to carry out tho measures of tho general government and continue the policy of this stato as it has been thus far prosecuted, your delegates in Convention assembled, have again nominated for your suffrages STEVENS T. MASON for Go vernor ; EDWARD MUNDY for Lieut. Governor, and ISAAC E. CRARY for Representative to Congress. In again pre senting tho names of these gentlemen as candidates for reelection to tho responsible offices which they now hold, the Convention were governed, in tho first place, by what they believed to bo your clearly expressed wishes, and in the second, by their own senso of tho high qualifications of tho nom inees. Wo were aware that these gentle men were chosen by you with unexampled unanimity to tho stations which they now occupy, and we could find nothing in the course of their public lifo to forfeit, but ra ther much to increase, tho confidence which was then reposed in them. In STEVENS T. MASOtf tho Convcn tion recognized a faithful public servant, who has always been zealously engaged in the causo of the peoplo in Michigan, contending for their rights as citizens and as a state. From the earliest movements of tho inhabi tants of this peninsula to throw off their territorial system and assume tho rights of self-government as an independent state, ho has nlways been found in tho front rank, fighting for our principles. In manifesting your, con .idenco in his ability, and your approval of this patriotic course as acting governor of tho late terrritory, you elected him almost unanimously, the first chief magistrate of tho stato. And, siuco his el evation to that responsible office, his official acts havo been in conformity with the whole tenor of his former, public life. The gen eral adoption of the measures which ho Ins recommended to tho consideration of tho legislature, aflurds t!io b;:st evidence that his duties havo been performed tis well in accordanco with tho opinions of tho peoplo as they havo to tho advancement of tho best interests of the state. In presenting you with tho namo of ED. WARD MUNDY for reelection to tho office of Lieutenant Governor, wc offer you a candidate who has always been iden. tificd with tho democratic party of tin's stato in its struggles for territorial and stato rights. Mr. Mundy was ono of tho mem bers of tho Convention which formed tho consliwiion of this state, Aid h g lined, (n that body a favorabld reputation for the liberality of principles and tho sound, ncss of his judgment. Approving" ofhU services in tho Convention, tlio peoplo e. lected him by a decisivo vote to tho station which ho now holds. Tho public duties of tho Liouicnant Governor constat chiefly in presiding over tho deliberations of tha senate, arid every ono who has witnessed tho manner in which Mr4 Mundy has dis. charged that duty will bear testimony tt) tho dignity and ability with which ho ha performed tho duties of tho chair", or en. gaged in discussion on tho floor of the sen. ate. As tho democratic candidate for Repre scntativo to Congress, tho Convention havo again placed before you the namo of I. SAAC, E. CRARY, tho Uw member. Liko tho other members of tlld ticket, Mr. Crary was among the most adilvo and ef. ficientofour citizens in urging tho early adoption of preliminary measures fof tho establishment of tho stato Government. lly tho partiality of his immediate fellow citizens ho was chosen a delegate to tho Convention which formed our Constition, where ho was distinguished for his ablo and eloquent support of tho sound republican principles which characterize that instru. ment. In approbation of tho talents and ability which he displayed in that body, ho was elected tho first Representative of tho Stato in Congress. And though from his late admission to his scat in tho House, hd enjoyed no opportunity to vindicate, Irt that body tho injured rights of its constU tuents he yet exerted a powerful influ ence in behalf of our cause with men of all parties, and particularly with tho repub., lican members of Congress. His defenco of tho rights of Michigan to tho disputed territory, before the judiciary committee of tho Houso of Representatives, where ho contended two days, single-handed, against tho master spirit of the Ohio delegation, was pronounced, by all who heard it, a masterly effort in support of our rights, creditable a. liko to tho character of tho Stato and to tho abihte.3 of tho Representative. Objections havo been mado against tho ticket above nominated for your support, that it partakes of a local character. Ad. mitting even that this were true, we belie vo that tho history of tho public lifo df tho nominees, in tho stations they now fill, af. fords abundant testimony that they aro in. capablo of being influenced by sectional interests or local feelings in tho discharge of any public trust which may bo reposed in them. Tho names of Governor Mason and Lieutenant Governor Mundy signed to tho Internal Improvement Bill, passed at tho last annual session of tho Legislature show that tlicy regard tho interests of each and every section of tho Stato as tho ob. ject of their public duties. And, in regard to Air. Chary, the candidate for Cong."css, his central position alono would indicate that ho can havo no- local or sectional interests to promoto in his capacity as Represcn. lauvc. yvnu wo navo naci occasion to Know that whilo at Washington, both in tho Uouso and out of i Mr. Crary, in connection with our Senators, indefatigable in his ex ertions to obtain appropriations to improvo tho harbor at Monroe, to establish a light, houso at tho mouth of Clinton river and ' improvo the navigation of that stream, and, in short to obtain tho aid of Congress for tho construction of all thoso improvements desired by our citizens in every portion of the State. . That the ticket abovo recommended to your support, will meet with tho violent dp. position of tho enemies of tho democratic party is, as a matter of course, to bo ex. pectcd. Awaro of the impotency of their labors to wound tho principles of democra cy their policy is to aim all their shafts at the men selected by tho people to carry those principles into effect. It has been one of tho marked peculiarities of tho po. litical history of Michigan, that the federal organs havo uniformly waged a bitter and relentless personal warfaro upon tho indi viduals who havo stood highest in tho fix vor and confidence of the people. Liko tho ambitious Grecian general, who was unablo to enjoy reposo because his moro worthy rival had excelled him in winning a glorious victory for tho Republic, so they cannot rest because the democratic party has gained tho honor of advancing tho Stato so rapidly forward in her prosperous career. In tho natural gratification of this unhappy feeling, it is to bo expected that they will assail, with reckless violence, tho popular candidates for public trusts, whoso exertions have been most effectual in acquiring for thoS:ato tho character and prosperity which it enjoys. Democrats of Michigan Tho contest in which wo aro now cnga. ging cannot bo doublful, if you will per form your duties to yourselvoj at tho polls. Tho history of tho last year, in tho politics of Michigan, should warn you against re- maining inactive at elections in which tho principles of popular rights aro in vol Tho old and uniform cnimics of demo Ivcd mocra. cy aro putting in requisition all tho means in their power to striko at popular rights by the defeat of our candidates, and it is a duty which you owo to yourselves to rally in their support and securo their triumphant election. If it bo difficult for tho farmers to leave their business at tho election, tho honor of tho S:ato & their own interests re. quirothat they should chcorfully make tho sacrifice. If wc would preserve and protect tho free principles oa which tho democrat ic party is founded, wo must act with the c tenia! vigilanco which is tho guaranty and tin prico of liberty. The lule Election. Wo understand tliat a statement of tho illegal manner in which tho lata election in tho third district was conducted, will shortly bo presented to tho public. Tho rights of tho legal voters of that district havo been outraged and wo hopo tha, measures will bo adopted to bring tho oilbndoM to justice. renntyU tanian, s Tho latest monstrocity is that of a man in Vermont, so tall that ho can't tell when his to.s aic coM.
