By the wise policy of that es tablishment were the wants of the south ern producers supplied, whilst the Euro pean speculator was prevented from taking advantage of their neediness. For this wise course, the bank has been assailed ' abroad, its motives misrepresented, and its objects misconstrued. Charged with becoming a dealer in cotton, because it dared to run the risk of loss in taking the products of our country in exchange for its paper, nnd placing them in foreign markets at fair prices, it disregarded the calumnies uttered against it, and has suc ceed in preserving to our people the ability of effecting what they have done and aie doing. The same reasons which induce foreigners to detract from the merits of such a policy, should make every Ameri can appreciate, as it deserves, such self devotion to the public good a devotion that well entitles those by whom so wise an expedient was furnished, to the lasting gratitude of their countrymen.

Not meet ing his engagements respecting the bonds, a Mr. Beale, of Mobile, was deputised to proceed to Tuscaloosa & reclaim the goods. He was driven off by the Simontons. Col. Vance Johnston and seven others were then deputised to accomplish what Mr. Beale could not. Col.
