MOID AT, A PHIL lft, 1937. Vr We ha/e appointed James Miller, who comes to as well recommended, to the responsible office of Carrier of the Herald, for the route bounded by Canal street, Broadway, the North river, und embraciag one aide of Pine street to the water's edge. James begins today. If any subscribers should not be served, they will be supplied at the oftice, when their names will be recorded, in order to have them regularly aervad them in future. There has been a great deal of negligence on this route during the last three months, bnt by this reform we trust we shall be able to gratify our reader* :o their hearts content. Wekklv Hekalms, containing n full history of the great Commerc.al Revolution for sale at this oltice. Only a few now remaining on hand. Four Day* later fro.n Havre. By the Packet ship Sully, Capt. Linua, we have received our numerous flies of French papers down to the IPth ult. from Paris, and 1 1th from Havre. This news we received at sun down, on Saturday, nearly twenty h'jurv in adeiru: of evory other paper in the city. Our news collectors boarded the vessel many miles out at sea. Indeed, on almost every oc casion. we now beat the lazy, indolent, corrupt, Wall street prints. We have engaged what we may call a fleet of news schooners, and by an ingenious plan, originating with themselves, they form an Express line of news schowners, reaching one hundred to one hundred and fifty miles, from Sandy Hook, out upon the Atlantic ocean. This relay of fast sailing craft, unique in the history of New York news collecting, and shooting beyond the reach of all the Wall street news boats, may be of great service to the comnier- I cial community, during the present revulsion here and in Europe. The news by this arrival is interesting. Tlit money market in Pans is agitated and falling, aimpiy, how over, from !o< a! causes. The political and social news indicates the state of the pubi c mind en the continent. Regal assassins are springing up in every part of France. When the frank and chivalrous Frenchman becomes a secret murderer, the stateof society is bad. The throne of Louis Phillippe is not secure. In every par' of France, there are secret ideas and passions at work, that wtll burst forth into revolution and blood shed one of these days. The old Roman taste of assassinating kings and emperors, appears to be de " ^ ng itself in France. In the midst of this sin ular poln. "a' we -see f'le Sunday devoted to lectures on the religious mysteries of Egypt, to the opera, to the legitimate drama, and to all matters con nected with science and art. The f rench papers are also full of political disquisitions, but they are exceed ingly uninteresting ? being merely personal, local, and referring to rli(jues of politicians, not to broad views or geieral principles. Tin.1 price of cotton has again declined in Havre not much but slightly. Specie continue* to bebrought bv our government to this country. The Sully has on board 609,000 francs, part of the Indemnity mo iiry. This operation will add further fluctuations to the exchanges. Paris, March 9, 1837. -Stock Exchange.?' The market has been very heavy, and sales to a conside rable amount have had the effect of occasioning a fall in prices. For cash, I* :ves havo declined 30c. ; I* ours 10c.; Threes 30c.; Neapolitan 10c.; Spanish and Portuguese J. For the end of the month, Fivos have fallen 30c.; Threes 30. ; Neapolitan 15c. ; A Marseilles Journal announce* that Paganini has inst left thnt city, and intends to proceed to America by way of Havre. The reports of a dissolution of the Chamber had died away, but were revived yesterday by certain ministerialists. This new act of intimidation, how ever, produced but little effect in iheC hamber, and the slight share of alarm excited by it, was confined to tho deputies who voted against the measure. The Temp* sayst? "We believs that, the Gazette tie France was mistaken in announcing last night that the Non-revelation Bill had been withdrawn.? Count Simeon, the reporter, is nearly recovered, and will hasten his report The bill is completely chang ed, and much a?fu?ned down. A Peer ha# been h-ard to say that it is now passable, or at least pre ventable." , The Constitution el says: ? "On Tuesday, after the rejection of the Disiunctwn Bill, the President of the Chamber, and the Ex-Governor of Africa exchanged the most cordial and affectionate demonstrations of esteem. " At the Chamber, as before the enemy," said M. Dnuin," victory ought not be saddened by any Utter recollections, I am your? Marshal"? and the President extended his hand. This noble action was appreciated ; the Marshal cordially shook the hand proffered to him. The Journal dc Paris attributes to the discovery ?f another infernal machine and a plot against the life of the King, the step lately taken by the Mayor of Vanvrcs, who, it will be recollected, a day or two since proceeded in great haste to the Chamber of Deputies, and demanded an immediate audience of M. Ciaspann, the Minis er of the Interior. "The police," says the Eur*i>e, "has received in formation that two men ieft Nantes for Pans a fow days ago, with the avowed intention of attempting to kill the king, but their names and the descriptions of their persons are so v.sgue, that, notwithstanding the most active exertions, no traces oi them have as yet keen discovered." t Th?? Chamber of Deputies was more numerously attended on Tuesday, when the division on the Dis junctive Bill took place, than on any other occasion sin *e the vote on the question ot an hereditary peer age. On that question, 421 deputies took part in tin ballot ; the number present on Tuesday amounted to 420. Several opposition monbers travelled a consid erable distance, in order to attend the debate. M. Teyss^re, deputy for Carcassonne, performed, it is said, a |ourncy of 200 leagues jioat for that purpose and M Petou came up from INantcs, expressly to give his vote. M. Pag?*s, deputy for the Arrwge, in spite of a serious indisposition, made lus appearance amongst his colleagues, for the first time during the past month; and Col. Bricqtieville. who has for Mine time been too unwell to quit his bed. would have ab solutely insisted on being carried to the < hamber, but for the pressing and judicious interference of some of his friends. m , " M. Gamier- Page*," says the AfeMMfer, has taid upon the table of the Chamber a petition, signed by the members of thw Polish committee assembled m London, praying for the repeal of the law of the 21st of April, 1%3'2, which prevents thc,r ceiintrywien in France from choosing their place of residence. The Sationa! says ? "A petition, to which 2000 signatures have Ix-en affixed, has just heso presented to the Chamber of Deputies, praying that branch of the legislature to declare by a vote that Algeria is an integral and indivisible part of the French terri tory On the realization of this wi?h depends the prosperity ef that eolsny, the expediency of retaining which, althoagh proclaimed on every occasion by the Ministers, appears, nevertheless, to be a matter of question amongst them. ' , The MmUrur states that the grant made by the Governor of Cuba of the faculty of depositing wine, oil, and othrr liquor* in bond at the Havana, not having been extended to Saint J ago, the merchants of France hail not been able to derive all the advant ages from the measure intended to be afforded to them ? but that the French Consul at the Havana has by his influence with the local authorities, succeeded in obtaining its extension to the port of Saint ?'"R'N as soen as the requisite buildings can be completed, and in the meantime that liquids may be transferred from one vessel to another in the port of Saint Jago, conforming, nevertheless, to the regulations in force in these cases at the Havana. The Royal Court U Parts v.wtetday prononnced its decree it* trie cs?e of M . Chauviere, the refiner and mo ncy changer, confirming the judgment bv which he is condemned to an imprisonment for twelve months, to pay a fine of lS.OOOfr. aad damages to the amount of 1)0 00#tr M Chauviere was in court, and appeared to be very much affected by this new decision against him. On Sunday next, at two o'clock, M. Briere will open at the Mayory, Placodes Petits Peres, a public and gratuitous course of lectures on the hieroglyphics of Egypt and the mysteres of paganism, continuing them on each successive Sunday. Mahuiaue Laws in PaAscn.? On lhe6ih ofOc tober, 1931, Mr. B. being above 25 years of age, con tracted a marriage in the Island of Jersey, with an English lady, 'in his return to France, he made a formal demand upon his father for an annual allow ance of 4000fr., on the ground that, having himself become the father of a family, his wants were increas ed, and he required wherewithal (o support his wife and childien. The father resisted (bis claim, an the ground that the marriage was illegal : first, because the certificate of the marriage in England did not state that the bans had been duly published ; second ly, because the previous publications in France had been omitted; and thirdly, because no reapectful ap plication for consent had been made to hun, (the la ther.) These points were tried before the Tribune de Premiere Instance, at Nantes, and afterwards before the Royal Court of Rennts, oa an appeal, both of which decided in favor the of son. The cause was af terwards brought before the Court of Caseation by an appeal, which came to a hearing on Monday. The Court, after hearing the counsel for both parties, decid ed that as marriages in foreign countres, between citt ' zens of France and foreigners, although celebrated iu conformity to the laws of the country in which they are contiacted are valid only when the previous publi cations have been made in France, and in the case of a son above the age of '13, when either the couscnt of the parent has been obtained, or the prescribed formal applications for such consent have been made; and as in the case of Mr. 15. jun., neither of these requisitions of the law had been complied with, ? the judgments of the two provincial courts must be annulled as con trary to law. Singular Game. ? A feat unparalleled in the annals of chess playing has just been accomplished hy that Napoleon of1 the chess-board, M. de Lab^urdonnais, who some time since ! eat the celebrated player, M. de Joay, with his back turned to the board. In the match to which we now allude, he has beaten two well known and excellent players, M. Bonfil, and M. Leerivain, who played their games at the same time on two different boards, 31. de Labourdonuais keep ing his back tnrned to them during the whole of the play, and directing his moves merely lrom memory aiui calculation. The bill. aid room in which the games were played at tha Chess Club, Rue de Me nars, was crowded to excess, and nothing could ex ceed the enthusiasm of the spectators wheu M. de Labovdonnais gave his last check- mate. The games were finished in an hour anil a half. What seems most extraordinary is, that M. de Labourdonnais did not require the by-standers to preserve a strict silence, and that his attention and calculations appeared by nointans disturbed by the noise around him. Spain. ? A 1 iter from the camp of Don Carlos states that the Pretender is in a situation so difficult that he will be compelled to make a general attaek, in order to escape from the complaints of the people of the country, who are oppressed by taxes and extra ordinary levies. # , Madrid, 27 Feb.? The health of the President of | the Council, M. Calatrava, was gradually improving. The nomination of Count Almodovar to the post;of : Minister of War had not yet been officially announ ced, and in certain circles it was thought that he would decline entering a Cabinet of whicn M. Lopez [Minister of the Interior) was a member. The retire ment of M. Mendizabel was still talked of as proba ble, in spite of the support which that minister re ceives from Mr. Vilhers, the British Ambassador. The Queen's troops are said to have sustained a fresh check in Catalonia, a column of 960 Christinas, who were escorting a convoy between Cervera and Pena della, having been suddenly attaeked on the 18th near Lerida by Tr.stanv's bands. The Christiaos loot a number of men killed, and several taken prisoners.? The defeat of the Queen's troops is by many ascribed to the treachery of the colonel who commanded the Christmos' column, and who, in consequence of his treason, is said to have been fired upon and wounded by his twn soldiers. As soon as the intelligence of the late disastrous engagement at Bonnol was receiv ed in Madrid, the National Guards refused loobey an order which had been given to them to advance to some distance from the capital, and form a corps ol ! observation. This determination of the civic force excited serious uneasiness. In the sitting of the Cortes of the 26th, the debate on the bill, relative to the Liberty of the Pres^ w as resumed. The article 4 was adopted, exempting tbeeditors of all journals, not treating of religious or political matters, from the ne cessity ot furnishing a pecuniary deposit. The article 5 was likewise adopted, rendering it imperative on the publishers of all other louruals to furnish proofs of their having lodged the required pecuniary deposit, and of their enjoying civil rights. The Chamber then adjourned. A letter of the 4th inst., from Bayonne states, that the military operations of the tdirtstmos are paraly zed by the seventy of the weather. Thu position of Gen. Evans is the more critical, as the contractors for furnishing St. Sebastian with supplies refuse to make fresh advances till a portion of the arrears due to them shall have been paid. The Carlist expedition destined for Castile is said to be on the point of marching. The fortifications of Irun and Fontarabia are proceeding w ith activity. 1 he Carlist chief, Go mez, has not yet been tried. A letter dated yesterday, from St. Sebastian, states that the Comet steamer has arrived there on the 28th ult., from Santander and Potugallette, with despatch esfrom Gen. Espartero for <ien. Evans. On the 1st inst., the Phanix steamer left for Bilboa. having on hoard Col. Seiitlhe, Commissary of tht French Gov ernment. In consequence of the severe cold, the Carlists have withdrawn many of the troops from the line, where they may be said to have now only some ^Extract of a letter of the 29th ult. from St. Gall .?

Gbrmany. ? The Au%?burg Gazette gives the fol lowing from P?sth, under date ot 21st ult.:? Dis turbances have broken out in the Archbishopric of Kalotcsa, between the peasants and i lie ecclesiastical employes. The election of a judge of the village be ing about lo take place, the peasants wished to pro ceed in the business with the independence to which thvy conceived they were entitled by the recent laws. This wn? warmly opposed by the ecclesiastical em ployes. The peasants were extremely violent, and obtained the upper hand. From three to four hsn tired troops have been sent from this placc to ki lotcxa, to restore order.

I" acta, or moral problems, in the ahupe of facta, alwaya strike the mind of the public in lbs most underatandig part. In the neigh borhood oC New Vork, on this inland, and on both the opposite shores of Long Island and New Jersey, for miles in every direction, streets, places, squares, lanes, and splendid avenues, were laid out during the recent mania, capable of containing twenty millions of new inhabitants.

Pniaovae of the Times.? New mode of Rais ins the wind. ? A man named Joe Shaw, who had formerly been in the employ of n milkman, of New ton, L. I., Jacob Wight by na?me, disappeared about the latter end of Jaauary last. As he was* a man of rather intemperate liabits, the gireumstance was but little regarded. What was of more consequence, a cambist cloak was found wanting, about the same time, and a buffalo skin. Complaints were also made that the pans in the dairy were frequently minus tsheir proper complement of milk. All attempts to discover thecauseofthis diminution, wcte unavailing? whetfeer it were dog, or cat, or Jemmy Twiteher. In Si otland it would have been settled in a trice, and tha " Brow nie" would havehivi all the credit of it? and a " Brow nie" it w as in this ease. Last weik, the farmer havrng occasion to dig pret ty deep into the hay, stacked up in his barn, em ployed two or three men for that purpose. They had dug considerably into the stack, when one of them suddenly started back in affright. ?' What's the matter?" said the farmer. "Look thers," said the man, lifting his fork to strike. "What is it?" said the others, pressing on. "It is a wolf' said one. " A bear," said anothtr. "It is the Devil J" said they all, flying precipitately from the barn, as they beheld a grisly figure wrapped in a buffalo hide, rise slowly from its lair. But it was not the Devil, whose attention is entire ly monopolised by Brandreth, the quack. It was only Joe Shaw. It seems that "honest Joe,'1 alarmed at the high prices of provisions, fuel, and rent, and scared almost out of his senses by the Jeremiads of the locofocos, wisely resolved to secure to himself an asylum that should supersede the necessity of all throe. Accord ingly, seizing a proper opportunity, he burrowed tor himself a hole in Wight's barn, into which he eon veyed a camblet cloak and a buffalo hide; and, tor toise like, took up his quarters for the winter. When hunger called, lie would emerge from his hiding place, and satisfy himself on milk-and on this beverage alone has he subsisted since the first of February. All day he remained coiled Bp in a space scarcely big enough to admit his body, coming out at night to stretch his legs, and take his Arcadian meal. From his covert he could hear all that passed in the barn; and once an accident happened, which sorely tempt ed him to " break cover." One of the men, in a state of intoxication, mounted on the top of the stack, and fell from that height. " Hilloa ! Jim's broke his neck!" exclaimed the bystanders; and then he heard what he thought to be the corpse of his comrade dragged out of the barn. Jim, how ever, was only stunned, and Joe kept snug in his 'hole. When found, his beard had grown t? a considerable length, and wa. closely matted against his cheeks, from the confined position in which he was obliged to lie. His hands had grown white and deli cate, and his whole appearance sleek, and in good condition. Altogether, this freak of Joe Shaw's is one of the most "fantastic tricks" which "man, proud man,' is aecustomed to "play before high heaven," that e?er wc heard of. Pbactkal Follv. ?

Burrows. SECOND DAY. Luke Davis, a minister, was called for the defence to prove tlie marriage of the prisoner and his brother John. Dr. Webster was called for the defence to show that a blow on the right side of the mother must of conse quence injure the left side of the child. Some other uniiajiortant medical testimony was also givtn by this learned doctor, but it had little or no bearing ort the point at issue. John Burrows, the brother of the prisoner, was next examined. His evidenee was entirely irv favor of the prisoner. Michael Wilkinson, the Husband of the deceased, j Mrs. Wilkinson, was then examined by Mr. Pliu-nix lor the prosecution. He positively denied ever having struck or other wise ill treated his wife. He also distincdy swore that to his knowledge his wife never was intoxicated; that the faet of Cnrharine Burrows having lived with him as a servant was also true* and that the reason for his discharging her was her habits of intoxica' tion. Cross-examined. ? Has had a difficulty with Catharine Burrows respecting her wages;, the difficul ty arose from her getting intoxicated; she cume to uie and demanded her wages; I said " I will not pay you ? if there is any thing due to vou sue me for it, and if it is derided 1 owe you any tiling, 1 will cheerfully pay yoe." Mrs. Catharine Fowler, examined by Mr. Phtenix, for the prosecution. ? I was acquainted with Mrs. Wilkinson during two years. 1 never saw her touch spirituous liquor with the exception of when she was sick, just before her death. Mr. Wilkinson always treated his wife well. I have but a slight knowledge of Catharine Burrows. Three nights before Mrs. Wilkinson's death, >Mrs.;Willunsonlcalled her huob.ind to her bedside and saidtshc.kncwjshe was dying. She requested her husband to torsive Burrows. She also said Burrows' brother had slapped her in the face. ? Mrs. Wilkmsen blessed her children, and said to her husband, "lam dying before my time. 1 got my death from that kick," (alluding to the kick Burrows had tjiven her in the side.) Prisoner's counsel declined asking any qnestiens. Mrs. Ann Gilbert, examined ? 1 his witness was called for the prosecution, to prove that during the time she had known Mrs. Wilkinson, ('i yc-ars,) she had never observed her to be any thing but a strictly temperate woman. John Wood, examined, for the prosecution. ? I lived in the same house with Mr. and Mrs. Wilkinson for nine months. I never observed any thing like drunk enness in Mrs. Wilkinson. Mr. Wilkinson appeared to treat his wife well. 1 never saw any thing to the contrary. 1 Henr; Stainer, examined? I lived five months m the same house with Mr. and Mrs. Wilkinson. I never saw any unkmdaesson las part, nor any syup toms of intoxicatien on the part of Mrs. Wilkinson. A great number of witnesses were now examined. Their testimony wervt invariably to show the kindness with which Wilkinson treated his wife, and that Mrs. Wilkinson was an industrious, sober, and kind-lujerted Jacob Lodrr examined ? 1 was near Mr. Wilkinson's when the atfray happened ; 1 heard murder ?n?d; I crossed over from tne stoop whereon 1 was suting as I caine to the door I Mrs. Wilkinson throw a pitcher of milk over the prisoner, Burrows. Ths prisoner then struck Mrs. Wilkinson in the breast; she fell ami he then kicked her and said '* lluiin y*u take that." By the Court.? Was the kick severe ? Witness. ? I am notable to say ? but I should judge it was. By a Juror.? Can you recognize the pnsoner as the man who kicked Mrs. Wilkinson ! Witness.? Yes, sir, [pointing out the prison**] that is the man. The apprentice boy was examined after the last witness. His evidence threw no light up?n the atTair. He seemed to hnvc forgotten every material fact. ? His answers both to Mr. Phumx aad the Prisoner's conns were " I do net racollect," "I cannot say," "1 doe' not remember." Mrs. Aleock recalled.? This lady merely rrcapitula 1 ted her evidence. There was little or no variation in her ! statement compared with that given on Friday. Mr. Harman Morris also was called to prove that Dr. Anderson was too ill to venture out. The court directed an examination should be gone into of the Doctoral his own house. Somediscussion now arose whsther the tml should proceed or be adjourned over until Monday. Several of the jury seemed anxious for the trial to proceed ; but upon a representation being made to the Recorder that it would be very late at night before the evidence could be closed, and Mr. Phu-nix staling tliat it was his intention to address the jury, it was finally agreed to adjourn the court until 1 1 o'clock to day. Adjournifd accordingly. The Crlals-?The Kemrdj --Niuprnilonor Specie PayMtHti. Kellow-Citi?ns ? Arouse and avert the great dan ger nnd destruction that awaits vott. Th? fearful time ha* arrived. A storm has over taken ua, which threatens imturd:ate destruction to th? largest porno.i of our best ci izens. The most in dustrious and enterprising merchants, mechanics, nnd artisnns, to whom this urtat metropolis is indebted for its unexampled growth in population, character ami wealth, arc about to be sacrificed. More than half of our worthy citisens, who of late have reposed in comfort and case, with ample fortunes, accumulated by the moat laudable exertions la hono rable pursuits, are to be suddenly burled into poverty and distress. Ye?, fellow citizens, this dread/ul ea Inmity must surely and suddenly be realised, unless averted by an immediate union of your most power ful energies and exertions for self preservation. I say union, because by it you may be saved? and without it, your destruction is inevitable. There is no time to be lost in recapitulating the va riou* causesof the existing embarrassments. It would be useless and inexpedient to ndvert to the mistakes and errors, or designs of our National or State Legis latures, or to impntf dishonorable motives to those who have had, and who yet have power to extend relief. If any thing could be trained by adverting to the va rious causes of the great embarrassment nnd distress which we sutler, I could urge That the various Legislative enactments t? dimin ish the circulation of small bank notes, has required the substitution of fifteen to twenty millions of dollars in specie, which, if now concentrated in any important commercial cities, would protect a circHlating medium of three times that amount, nnd render the commer 1 cial aflairs of the country quite safe and easy, under the* existing embarrassment of Kurope. That the limited credit of duties on imports, has contributed greatly to the present embarrassment of the country. That a large amount of the loans authorised by the southern ana western states, and of the stocks in tho various rail roads, canals, and banks, and of many of the commercial companies, are owned in this city. The course pursue! by the Treasury Department, has had the most powerful influence in producing the present crisis. The extensive speculations and high prices paid for a large amount of lands and lots, in many extreme parts ol the country, and in and about the city of New York. The want of incorporated banks, or other monied institutions in this city, by which adequate capital could be concentrateu and safely managed, to an ex tent commensurate with the vast amount and impor tance of it# commercial transactions. That the limited amount of our in?nied incorpora tions compels us to seek, in a humble and degrading manner, pecuniary aid of other cities, possessing less capital and commercial importance, but less tram meled by Legislative restrictions. Whether such have or have not been the causes of the present embarrassments, is not a question to be now considered ? what we want is to know the re medy and adopt it promptly. Extreme cases require ! extreme remedies. It has been the policy of the bank j of England, in certain exigencies, to stop the payment of specie, and yet the medium of her notes were suffi cient for all purposes of a prosperous business, and enabled her to carry on successful wars almost against the whole world. On a similar but much leas embarrassing occasion than the present, the banks of this city, and nearly all the banks in the United States, stopped specie Eayments. and yet continued regular and extensive usiness during several years of an embarrassing and expensive war, during which the business of the country was very prosperous, and the evils of the war were much lessened by the facil ties which the bank ing institutions then extended with safely and conve nience. When the cause of stopping specie payments ceased to exist, the resumption of payments by the banks was eaady arid almost simultaneously etlected throughout the nation. During the time ot the sus pension many extensive enterprises w?re undertaken. Money was very plenty and eaaily commanded. Wa ges high, and all classes ol persons fully employed.? Bank noies were adopted as a good currency in the country when known, and were rated at a value of ten to twenty per centless than specie. The prices of all articles bought and sold were fixed in reference to the value of the medium ? hence no specie was want ed in the ordinary course of business ? it was there fore retained in the country. The present emergency and embarrassments ar? much graater than those caused by the late war, and much greater losses must be experienced, unless pre vented hy the immediate action of citizens without distinction of partyv Then why not adopt the onlvsaf rnedy at once? Let all the bank ? vt#?> sperf /m C?m*i with the banks in the city, I n 'j ail ti c I ted States vril I soon J' 'loir Banks could then e\ . > facilities for all purposes of business-, until by (iittii lied n rt ol floods, and increase. ^ xport of our | rodi I l ante of commerce would I > in tavor f ntry, when specie payments could be safi I' :is y re sumed. More especially if aided l> ntent of a National bank, or State quate capital. if this plan should be immediately ad?j< need be no more failures or sacnfices of propi . ul classes of mechanics and laborers would find good and profitable employment. The treasury fand, which h?obeen the great terror to banks, would be immediately rendered quite harm less. I am awaro that many of the banks and a few per sons- of large <uh capital may oppose aiy plan ? sup posmg that by many failures and great distress, all kinds of property must sink far below its value ? thereby affording them grea? opportunity of profita blu investments. From such persons the public have nothing to hope or fear. There can. be no doubt but the baaika and all hold eta of bank stocks must loao more by the many fad uites that must inevitably take plat.* by a continuance, of specie payments than Ky an early iTte apprehension from creditMs of banks and le gislative acts, need not aJnrm those who w Unwed the same state of things during the late war. Let tha banks stop payment to relieve the people, and the ' people will not be ungrateful noj unmindful when the i same bonks want legislative support or promotion. Resolve, then, to act boldly, promptly and effect - ually, :umJ be assured that you will nde triumphant, over the storm that threatens to engulph you. alSHt No Pasty Ma>. Boarsay. ?
