Husiable, clerk, by the advice of Mr. John
Wright, of the firm of Wright &Cr., her
bankers, invested a considerable sum of mo
ney (5,5j4) in bonds issued under the seal of
the government of Illinois. Messrs Wright
were the agenls for the state, to which they
were large'y indebted when the banlr failed.
Messrs Mngniac, Smith fc Co. were then ap
pointed agent for the state; that firm subse
quently undergoing divers changes of part
nership, and becoming known as Magniac,
Jardiue & Co.: -while since April, 1823, Me
srs Baring, Brothers it Co. having been the a
genst. In March 18 IS, the agents refused to
acknowledge Mrs Huxtable'j bonds, or to pay
the dividends upon them, on the plea that the
bonds and sixteen others had been irregularly
sent into the market by Messrs Wright & Co.;
that the coupons had not been seveted, and
also that ihe agents had Dot sufficient funds.
The plaintiff denied that she was liable for
the itregularilies of ihe .tales agent; and fur
ther nlledged that Mr. Jaitdon, as commission
er of the staie, had proved a debt against Ihe
esiate of Messrs Wright & Co. amounting to
17,92", which sum included the money she
had invested. She therefore filed a bill a
gainst the Mate and various persons, inclu
ding the partners to the several firms, pray
ing that Ibf (dividend of Wright's estate
might not he paid over to the Stat until her
claim should have been satisfied. The state
of Illinois did not appear to the bill; but
Messrs. Magniac Ac Co , and Messrs. Baring,
Brothers St Co., demurred to it, on the score
of a general want of equity as regards them.
The Vice chancellor observed, in giving
judgment, it did not follow Ihat if the state of
Illinois had repudiated Ihe transaction, ihev
repudiated it in the offensive meaning inten
ded to be given to that word, or that they had
done so without reason; for if the state placed
bonds 111 the hands of its agents with certain
directions how to use them and they were
improperly dealt with by ihose agents, it
would be too much to say that Ihe stale acted
dishonestly h.eause it refused to sanction
what it did not authorize. He thought the
transaction a fair one on the part of the slate.
The question here was, had ihe plaintiff, by
her bill, made out sufficient case against
Messrs. Magniac & Co., a one party, and
Messrs. Baring, Brothers & Co, as another
party? The alligalions in the bill were too
indistinct as respected the several parlies
and ihough they appeared to ihe substratium
of a good case, he did not think that il had
been sufficiently made out. The demurrer,
therefore was allowed.

A Prsp:nt to Mn Polk. We saw this morn
ing nl the foot of Gay street, n splendid barge made
by tlio mechanics of the District of Kensington,

We have a few men in our tanks to whom
the whigs concede all ihe. attributes of emi
nent .talesmen, One of these is James Buch
anan, the favorite Senator of Pennsylvania.
He has lately drawn the character of the
Ptesideni elect in a few words, but with so
much truth and correctness, that it will be
reecgniztd as a faithful drawing by all who
know him well.
In a letter of the 11th ttlt., published in the
Globe, Mr. Buchanan says;
"I have been upon terms ofpersonal, polit
ical and social Intimacy with Jam.s K. Polk
for nearly twenty years; and have observed
him in all situations, both in the sunshine
and in the storm. Whilst the tremendous
war of the Bank ot the United Mates against
ihe administration of the glorious old hero
and sage of the Hermitage was raging, he
never quailed, but led the van of Democracy
in the House of Hepresentaiivts. I shall
venture the prediction that, as President of
the United Stales, he will disappoint the ex
pectations of his political loen, and will sur
pass even ihe high hopes of his friends.
Prudent, firm, and sagacious, with a charac
ter, public and private, above all reproach,
his country's good will be the polar-star of his
administration; and his own glory and lasting
benefits to the people of the United Slates,
will he his rich reward, provided he be not
thwarled by premature attempts 10 divide the
party in a struggle for the next Presidency.
His own nomination and triumphant election
ought 10 warn ihe friends of all impatient as
pirants, if any such there be, that those who
are the first to enter the lists, and thus dis
tract the parly, will be the last in reaching
the goal.
"The leading characteristic of Mr. Polk's
mind is an almost unerring judgment, which
eminently tits him (or the high position to
which his country has called him. During
his long and varied services in Congress, it
may be said of him, what could scarcely be
asserted of any other public man, placed in a
similar position that he has never h id oc
casion to explain or retract any of his votes,
or even lo qualify any ol his opinions, ex
pressed in the ardour of debate."
In the late canvass there was a concerted
attempt throughout the Imion, amongst the
whig leaders, to represent Mr. Clay as infin
itely the superior of Mr. Polk in all the great
characteristics of a statesman. In ihe con
trast which was continually presented to the
people, the grossest injustice was done 10
Mr. P. Whilst Mr. Clay was elevated far
above his true level as a man of talents, his
