The bank bill fame up for further discussion, ou the clause requiring oue tilth of the nob's iu circulation to Is l secured by •pccie in the vault# of the bankers. With out coming to a vote, the House adjourned Iti the Semite, the gri atcr part of tin. <*••# lion was consumed in u discussion upon the quitd'iou whether the Senate should appoint a Committee of invtutigation on the late election returns. After a great deal of time spent, and the manifestations of ill feeling on the part of sum? of the Senators, the Senate adjourned without deciding the mutter. Iu the II mi. Thursday, the general bii'i liens was forwarded, ami three Senate bills passed finally. The House bill introduced by Mr. Stkvkns, ami referred to a select committee, and afterwards reported back to the House for adoption, providing for a re vision and compilation of the Statutes, was considered in Committee or the Whole, and elicited a generul discussion on the rcs|>cc tive merits of the new code and the common law practice. The bill Humes MohkhSiikr- BCR.vk, Aaron CooDltliil and Wit.

The main part of the discussion was upon the question of inserting a provision in the lull, defining the code. whether the new code or common law. u)sm which the superstruc ture should f>e erected. The friends of the bill were opjioscd to inserting any instruc tion in the bill, proposing to tiring in u sep arate bill, designating the |miver< and du ti'W of the Coininissioiiers. A eomprnmi.*' was iff ctisl by depting a substitute which merely up|*iinh-d the Commissioners und designated the work to be done, but left them without power to act until the le_ > latuiv would ugr ujsin a cish-.aiid pre'-enlx their duties.

Hut to be sum that nothing objectionable or loose in the bill hod escap ed amendment, tire House determined to have the bill reprinted before ordering its engnwsincnt. There are two amendment* yet neceasary to bring it within a constitu tional bill. Otherwise, the bill is very (air, giving honest bankers all the latitude neces sary for honorable banking, awl protecting them from the’eompetition of dishonest men. Iu the Semite, the tax extension bill, as amended in the House, was adopted, except as relates to Pine county, which was not exempted. Some State Koad bills were passed filially, und also two bills relating to the powers ol Justices of the Peace. The only business of moment befwru the Ho use Tuesday, was the further eon-id''ra tion of the Batik Hill, which is now in a very fuvorable condition lor passage. It was not ordered etigrotsacd tor a third read ing, because several lengthy sections were in troduced as amendments, which gave ri-eto discu-siou, peuding which the House ud- journed. The Semite was employed nearly all day ill discussing the Homestead ls»w. Il'.'ioatrnit Kl"ll|ltlli" The principle of homestvud exemption is one which accords entirely with justice, and with the liberal sentiment of the age. It is found'd upon the ideas that every family is entitled to the secure possession of u home, and that the welfare, dignity mid stability of the State ure b -t secured through the absolute iiidepend"uee of the families which compose it. l lic idea is liln'ral, just, und lleinocrutie. We are, therefore, grntilietl that an eflort is being made in the present Is'gi-ldtureto incorjiorate this principle upon tin- laws of our State. The bill now b fore the Senate is correct in principle and detail. It rc-ognire* the sac redness and inviolability of the home, and protects it from sale except llirotigh the voluntary action of its owners. It is an ex ( mpt ion of the homestead, instead ol un ex emption oi a specific amount ol property in value. Wbent.be doctrine of homestead exemp tion was first broached, it was universally scouted at as furnishing a legal covering for fraud, and us calculated to destroy all credit, public as well us individual, Ky slow degrees, however, its justice has forced it upon the attention of the pimple, until now it is coming to be regarded us the true exemption doctrine throughout the country It bus Ims'ii in practical "["'ration in a few of the Mutos for severul \nir-, und it* work inge ure satisfactory to all closm s, cnslitor* as well as debtors. The exemption of a homestead by value, is a solecism and u fraud. It is not a homestead exemption ut all. tint u mere money exemption. W'e hoi*' the bill now I* fore the Senate, or one founded on the same principle, will [mss both Houses, mid Imconic u luw. We would wish to it [hiss without u disMent ing voice. If there should be ojijuisition, howeter. we heq*' it will not be found among Heinocratic Meinlc rs. who are here i-speeia!

We have *howti that to paper money tie long* the true paternity of conuniTvial ns vulsiooa with all their aftendunt evils : that ulternat*' expansion and contraction is u ms cess ary law of pa|tcr money ; that even while the expansion process is going ou no one is really lieoefitted thereby , whereas, tm soon as the contraction commences, every btsly must suflfvr, aid before it ts'ases. myr iads will Ik* ruined. No one. we apprehend, will, at this du\, dispute that j».i ja-r money expands credit; indixd, that this is the design und object of paper money ; ami that this expansion im parts an artificial mid undue stimulant to all kinds of busiuess. If pa|icr money did not expand credit.—it it did not enable ertdit to pass rs money—it would not be issued. The issue of paper money involves consider able exp»n«e, and it would be iliflicult to find Hunkers so [iliilanthropic as to incur this expense mcrvly for the conveuiemv of the public if they intended, or wore com js'llixl to keep e|jecie in tlcir vuitlls for eve ry dollar ol j*aj«t they circulated. Of • nurse, Is'lore they would do this Hunk* would cease to be Hanks of i-sue und be come only Hanks of deposit, ills' "lint und exchange n very profitable und Itnnora bli kind of Huukiitg, by the way, when le gitimately und wisely prnctieisl, and the only kind of Hanking which, in our opinion, the wants of the world ut present require. It is idle, therefore, nsevery practical Hunk er und intelligent man "f businc-s very well knows, to talk of Hunks ol issue which shall keep ou li.iiid u dollur in coin for every do! lur of their issue; in other words, that shall, at all times, be able, with the specie in tin ir vaults, to ruleciii their entire ein illation. It is ulwurd to cxjtatiute upon the great fan citd roininen ial [imiaeea a pa|s-t't urrency, uvery dollar of which shall reprisent a dol lar in coin. Such a thing is impossible in tlie nuturc of tilings, excepting us un occa sional accident. Tor what Hank will go to the expense of manufacturing and keeping up paper money if it can us well pay out the coin* The mere suggestion will pro vok" a derisive smile upon the fins- of the slirewd [irartieul Hanker. I*i»|s-r money is issued. Is'cause it enables cmlit which is not money, und which ihsu not represent inouey, to pass und circulate us money. If papiT money did not elUs't tin* object, if it did not to ii certain extent antctitiit" rndit for actual money,— if it did not [startially nu pens vie gold ami silver coin, which is the only luw ful money, it would not Ic use) There would lie no motive or object lor its use. It is to enable the Hunk to gain the profits upon the loan of it* credit that it issuca paper money.
