yV Highly important movements are in the
germ, in Washington, Albany and this city. A aeri
oua division has taken place between Mr. Clay and
Mr. Webster, the former going against the great land
bill, the ether for it, in conjunction with Mr. Van
Buren and Mr. Calhoun. In opposing that bill,
which is so favorable to the occupation of the public
lands, Mr. Clay will raiao up a storm of indignation
against his popularity in the west. General Harrison's
friends will evidently take advantage of this position,
and thus cany the whole west for the iiext presiden
cy. Probably also Mr. Webater is tired of running in
coaple any longer with Mr. Clay. Be time as it may,
we learn that the friends of Harrison in this city are
preparing to get up a large public meeting, similar to
the one in Cincinnati, and as a pattern for Albany and
the rest of the state. Wc are on the edge of all kinds
of revolutions.
Packet Dav. ? This is packet day? an interesting
and exciting day among friends, lovers, traders, bro
kers, captains, and loafers. Today four packets
sail ? two to Liverpool, one to Havre, and one to
London. The Columbus, Capt. Depeyster, and the
Sheridan, Capt. Pierce, sail to Liverpool ? the Media
tor, Capt. Champlin, to London, and the Charles Car
roll, Captain Lee, to Havre. At 10 o'clock, the letter
bags of all close at Gilpin's in the Exchange.
Reader, did you ever know personally a Nsw York
packet ship captain ? Did yoa ever enter a packet
ship cabin? The former are all princes? the latter
all palaces. If thf re is a place in Heaven more com
fortable than another, a New York packet ship cap
tain ought to get admission there. Their toil, their
talent, their enterprise, their generosity, their gentle
manly conduct, and particularly, the tender care they
always take of their lady passengers, crossing the
ocean, will be rewarded hereafter as well as in this
world. If steaming the Atlantic should succeed, they
are not demolished. They will sell their ships
build steamers, and beat the British on the broad At
lantic in less than a year.
Gentlemen, we wish you prosperous breezes? clear
skies? plenty of smiling fair passengers ? and short
New Merchants' Exchange. ? This day the New
Merchant's Exchange opens in the lower part of the
Rotunda, of the New Exchange in Wall street? the
entrance from the street.
This will give much convenience and comfort to
the merchants. Between the Exchange and the
Reading Room there is great ease of access? the one
being contiguous to the other. Wall street, will os
formerly, be now the great business centre of the
BaorGH, the singer, takes a benefit tomorrow even
ing. He is tall enough and capital enough to ensure
a good one.
U*The Paine Ball takes place tomorrow even
ing. I learn that many pretty goddesses will be pre
sent Do the philanthropists believe in a plurality of
goddesses? I verily think they do? and thus com
mit the sin of the ancient heathen. 1 meat go and
aee how they worship three lovely divinities.
fV The Montgomery Guards give their annual
ball on Monday evening, the 12th inst. Prepare your
armies, ladies.
fy The Great Religious Revival has now
spread over our four large cities, and thirty villagea on
the Atlantic coast, besides much vacant space. It
still gathera strength here, and although the nnmber
of converts slackens a little, on account probably of
the cold weather, it loses none of its intensity in the
hearts of tnie believers. Not a single broker or poli
tician has yet been awakened. Oh! sinners !
fY Gilpin's Reaping Room in the Exchange is
now very well attended. It is fitted up in elegant
style, and, at night, when the gas lights are alive, it
is truly magnificent. The number of subscribers also
increase? and no deubt they will increase till the list
becomes larger and larger than it ever wae. There ia,
we believe, no other reading room in the neighbor
hood of Wall street, but Gilp.n's. Let it flourish.
Something Curious.? Yesterday about 3 o'clock,
John Wood, Esq., a highly respectable eitizen, of fif
ty years standing, called at our office, and put into
our hands for publication the following naive notice,
which, as it is couched in respectable language, and
is proper and appropriate, we publish as received : ?
Seventt-five Dollars roa the Pooa.? The sub
scriber is owner of two brick stablva in R^publicsn
alley, oneof which he rented to Mr. John Haggeri v, Jr.
npon an application from Job Sullivan, a colored
man, (latelv deceased) who represented himself an
agent lor Hag??rty, Jr., and wished the stable for his,
and the accommodation of such members of the
Blood Club as he was at the time associated with, at
1150 the year, payable quarterly. Six months' rent
waspsid by Snllivan, and a receipt given in the name
of Mr. J. H. for the amount. The dwo/ution of Sul
livan taking place shortly after, and the last half
year'a rent not being paid to the subaenber, he called
upon Mr. H in a civil manner and demanded it. The
language used by H. was contumelious and insulting
in the extreme, who nut or.'r disavowed his respon
sibility but made use of such language aa no one gen
tlsmsn should use towards another j roundly affirm
ing he had paid Sullivan's wifi* the total amount,
which was a* flat) y contradicted by her, and were
it the ease, she wss not an'honsed to rce< ive it. The
money, if collected, can illy repay the subscriber for
outraged feeling and insult? and as his claim i? based
?n justice, he would be willing to refer it t* the decis
ion of honest m^n, and is willing to appropriate the
money to charitable purposes, it recovered.
John Wood.
We advise oar friend " young Mr. Haifgerty" to'pay
the rent, or at least to commute the ifl'air, and let the
poor have something to warm their hearts. Also he
ought not to treat old and respectable citizena in an
ungentlrmsnly way. Thu practice, as ihe Recover
would say, prevaila extensively in thu community
among voting men ? but it is time to quit it and he ci
vil. Young J >hn has a good example in my cm?.?
When I published his papa's name by mistake, 1
pleaded guilty, pa:d mv fine of d.'iOO, and squared off
all acrounts like an honest man. John go and do
likewise io Mr. Wood. It may ai l the ss I vat ion of
ymir precious soul, (and I suppose you hsve on#.)
which I take to bom a "perilous state," as Dogber
ry would say. Any thing for a quiet life, my friend.

Having received u invitation to be preeent nt n
wedding yesterday afternoon, we repaired to Doctor
Pott'a beautiful hew church at the corner of Duane
and Church street at the appointed hour, where we
feand half the city assembled to witnese the interest
ing ceremony, the mystical union commemorating tho
marriage of the Lord and his church. The ladies,
who always feel a deep and peraonal interest on these
occasions, mustered in strong numbers to counte
nance the bride when about to fulfil the destiny of her
sex ; while the gentleman was attended by a numer
ous retinue of bachelors, who, when they caught the
eyes of the knowing and conscious damsels, felt their
hearts come into their throats, and sighed like any
It must certainly be a strange thing to be married :
to stand up before a congregation of atniling ladies
and grinning youths, and vow that one will take a
woman into one's bosom, there to love and cherish
lier; to have the eyes of some two hundred individu
als watching your demeanor and gestures, and critici
sing your manners, and how you boar the blushing
lienors of a Benedict; it must be an awful moment;
and the very anticipation makes a cold sweat come
over us when we loot through the v;sta of tune, and
sec the perspective view of what is in store for us. ?
As for the Indies, dear creatures ! they bear it all with
marvellous resignation and feminine philosophy. ?
To them it is only another opportunity of shining, as
the presiding influence of the scene ; the fuvoring
genie that is to shed happiness around, and to bless
her own family, a eighing lover, and an impatient
husband at one and the same time.
The ceremony in Dr. Potts's church does not occu- j
py n long space of tiine, and the noose (we speak
metaphorically,) was soon tied. Some irreverent
persons have declared that the knot matrimonial is
but an allegory of another tie, from whose compres- i
sion there is no escaping. But we hold such ribald
jokers as out of the pale of decent society; and as we
intend to enter into the holy estate ourselves in no
long period, we beg leave to eschew their company,
and disavow their indecorous and unjust insinua
On this auspioious occasion all promised a happy
consummation. The bride was surrounded by con
senting friends in scores, whose benevolent and ra
diant faces shewed the deep interest they took in
their welfare, and Benedict attended with a like array.
The youthful viigin was attired in white silk, cut very
lew on the bo9om; her hair in its native beauty with
out any other ornament than its own redundant ring
lets, which clustered on her brow, and hung down
her cheeks. She looked quite a fairy, and was scarce
ly taller than one of those beautiful creatures we read
of in Arabian magical tales, being about three feet and
a half in stature, but admirably proportioned. The >
bridegroom was upwards of six feet in height, and
was dressed in the prescriptive blue coat and yellow
buttons; he kissed hia blooming bride most enthusi
astically at the altar, a happy prelude to the mois du
miel, which we hope will never turn to treacle, as a
profane wag once observed en a similar occasion.
We certainly think a better locale could not have
been chosen for the event than Dr. Poll's church,
than which there is not a handsomer in the city. ?
Every luxurious appliance seems to have been studied
to make devetion an easy and gratifying task ; the
?isles are thickly carpeted, the scats are well cush
ioned with gray moreen, and the desks'are wadded
with the same material. There is quite a profusion
of lamps hung around, which gives a finish to the
building, while the ceiling in its decorations reminds
us strongly of a theatre. Thia illusion is strength- j
ened by the painting behind the pulpit, which is a
counterpart of the proscenium of a theatre, with the |
curtain drawn up, and a perspective of a scene arrang
ed in order. The pulpit ia a remarkably handsome |
piece of furniture, and is accommodated with a seat r
in the shape of a divan; where thereverend divine can
repose in the intervals of devout exercise, and refresh
his eyes, and gain a furetaste of heaven while he gazes
on the angelic ereaturea around him *ith eyes up
turned to heaven in pious ecstacy, aa if they watehed J
their soaring souls? realizing in themselves and every |
accessory of the spot and oscasion, the true concep
tion of the beauty of holiness.
The happy pair, accompanied by their train, drove
off to Greenwich street, and left the church to soli
tude and ua? and we returned to our office musing
upon the physiology of marnage, and after puzzling
ourselves with the mystery, we pat pen to paper, and
wrote the account which we now finish.

A lb a k v . Jan. 29.
These arc the time* that try horse flesh. Nothing
ia heard but the tinkle, tinkle, ding, cling of theslcigii
bells. The cold wind during the whole of the day
awept along every street cloud* of snow? yet swift
flew the gliding sleigh. All Albany is in motion.
Pretty girls, well wrapped up in fura, attended by their
cavaliers, expose themselves without fear, to the nip
ping cold and furiuua storm. Verily, this said city of
Albany stands upon the peaks of a second snow tap
ped Popocateptl. How so much beauty oan exist in
so cold a region is inexplicable to me, who come from
the burning suns ot Louisiana. But, as Dr. McMur
trie says, in hiaxoolofical lectures ?the Creator tem
pers the wind to tho shorn lamb. I wish it were tem
pered to my feelings. 1 managed to get to the House
today, however, though the thick blood in my veina
nearly stood atill, so cold was it.
Nothing was done in t h*; A?sembly of any conse
quence. Tin- L< akc 6c Watts' Orphan Asylum Bill
came up for discussion. It appears that sondry heirs
at law in Europe have Isid in their claims to the es
tate of John O. Leake. This circumstance has thrown
the House into pi, as the printers would say. Some
are for giving theee claimanta time to prove their heir
ship? others, to give the A?yluin the money asked
for? and others agnin, to ko?p the funds whore th? y
are? safely in the State Treasury. How the aflmr
will terminate, it is no'sknown.
In the Senate, Mr. H. A. Livingston made a sensi
ble speech of half an hour'a length, in favor of the
small bill project. Gentlemen, aaid he in conclusion,
if you do not pass this bill ss it has come from the
low? r House, year conduct will creste a storm that
will toll across the Stato, on the idea of Novemlwr
next, from the roaring cataract of Niagara, to thr s- a
beaten beach on Mont*' k point. If will fall on ynur
Jevoted h* ?ds with n v^oli n *r that no flesh can with
stand, and you will be iw< pt from the facoof the po
litical earth, not even leav ng behind you the memory
of a good name I Mr. II. A. L vmirst?n possesses
great franknes of manner, and has the merit of
spenking good sense ntni i-timing directly to the point
at issue II is in fsct n legislntnr of the old school,
a thorough going d< mocrat,and acting for ihe gomlof
his constituents Were the in i] ?nty of the S. natr
composed of such men, the H onset would find able
co-operators n the enns1 of legislaimg for the public
interest*. Mr. Lacy followed, and m his plain, far
mer-like way, dealt bent y blown upon the hendsof
hi? radical nntagonists. flu ripped up the doings of
the party that fleeted and sustained G> n. JneV -on,
and showed plainly that the spirit of ultraism novr
prevailing in tins country, sprang from the character,
ife, deeds, and administration of that prince of pas
sionate, wilful, and law-break mg politicians the Itero
of the Hermitage.
So much for what has been don^ Now for what
istobedone. Governor Marcy will veto the small
note bill if it be unconditional. The Governor
to Washington in due time. One of tho Secretary
ships is to fall to his l?t. There is no romance about
this It ia the sober truth, to he verified when the
time cotneth. Mr. Verplnnck will bring in his hill
to repeal the R strainwgLaw, and to authorize private
bunking, one da* th>s week, to as to get the subject
d- bated in the Senate, simultaneously with the pro
c -cding* on the same sublet in the House. The St ?
lect Committee of th? Aseembly, to whom vn re
ferred the subject of the General Bank Lew, will re
port iheir bill either on Wedoeaday or Thursday. The
project of basing the circulation on reel estete unit not
obtein. It it proposed to seeure it by the delivery of
State or United States stock to certain public officer
who are to be authorized to stamp all netee so issued.
The details of the scheme, however, are not fixed
upon. Some prefer the system on whieh the joint
stoek banks are estnblished in England? te make the
notes payable ia the bills of come New York bank,
or in specie.
The anti-sub-treasury resolutions will be brought
into the lower House tomorrow. They will be very
fierce against Mr. Wright's scheme, and will test the
depth and sincerity of the Conservatives ie the Se
nate. Two or three days will doubtless be allowed
for the discussion of the subject, when they will be
sent to the upper House to receive their doom. No
fears are entertained but that they will pass fur theos*
pecial comfort of Mr. Silas Wright.
Maan, always busy in laying stumbling blocks in
the way of the timid Whig members, is preparing to
introduce a resolution to this effect \ ? that it is inex -
peditnt tocharltr a National Bank. He says he is
j determined to make the Whigs come out on this ques
! tion. Bat he will be floored. His resolution will be
amended, so as to add to it ? especially in the form
of the sub-trfarury system! The call to divide the
j resolution, of course will not be sustained, and Mr.
Mann'a wonder- working resoluti >n will be passed.
Mr. Mann and his clique will be placed in a most deli
cate position t?y this move. Vote as lie and his
i friends may, tluy will stand condt mm d !
Ai the s. ssion nrogressts the Whigs are getting
1 more courage. They are determined to discard all
the old federalists iu their lanks. This, 1 am glad
1 to hear, for it accords with an opinion expressed in a
! former letter to you. They are resolved not to e#'
' danger their existence, their principles, and their use
i fulness, by attending to the suggestions and intrigues
I of those Hartford Conventionisis who, like leeches,
| live but to suck the blood of their victims. The only
; difficulty they have in this matter is Mr. Webster. ?
> He is a dsad weight to the party, and how to nullify
his influence it is not yet determined. There is no
doubt of one thin.: ? they who support Mr. W's pre
tensiousto the presidency are not democrats. The
I Wbigsare beginning to see this, and hence they are
preparing, with their fans in their hands to winnow
the corn, and to cast into unquenchable fire the chair
and tares. Such are the elements now in motion.
The true Whigs are the real democratic party of the
country. They know it ; they feel it. In the opera
tion of this fanning business, depend upon it, the de
mocratic party will be entirely reorpanizsd, and that
too upon the platform of 1801. The Whigs will expel
all the federalists and traitors from their ranks, and
the Conservatives already driven from the position
they occupied in the presidental election ef 1635, are
organizing in the strength of their right. These two
parties will come together by their strong demo
cratic affinities before May next, and rescue the scep
tre of government from the iron grasp of radicalism.
Certain leading journals too, in New York, will be
unhorsed, and the reins given to other, more able and
more honest hands. All these things are in contem
plation, nay, are resolved upon. In the strife, the
Herald will, like old Erostratus, look on, see fair play,
and expose all attempts at villainous intrigue. The
business community, and lovely woman, will look to
the columns of the Herald for the philosophy of these
new movements. Stranger developements in my
next. LoA out.
P* Three steam boats have been burnt at New
Orleans. The following is by the express mail :?
Fihe? Three Steamboats Burnt. ? About one
o'clock this morning a fire brokeout in the Steamboat
Marmora, lying at the foot of Girod meet, and in a
ahort time, two adjacent boats, the Columbian and
the Chickasaw, were wrapt in flames. The Marmora
was loaded with cotton.
K7* We are positively assured, on good authority,
that Count Tasistro is Count Tasistro and no miatake.
He ia veritably what he repreaents himself to be?
and plenty of money coming to him besides. In a
few weeks we are promised full particulars that will
place hia standing in Europe, auch as he claims, be
yond a doubt.
Revolution on the Ocean. ? The new steam ship
?f 1350 tonnage, 400 home power, carrying 600 tens
?f fuel, ia expected here next April from Bristol. It ia
supposed she will make a voyage across the Atlantic
in 10 or 14 days.
If success should attend thii attempt, it will'pro*
duce as great a revolution in trade, manners, every
thing, as the discovery of thie Continont by Columbus.
British enterprise has already established steam linea
to their possessions in India through the Mediterra
nean, and the Red Ssa. In a few yeara steam will
restore the ancient character te the old routes of com
merce between the Fast and the West.
We do not see any insurmountable obstacle to the
navigation of the Atlantic by steam. If the English
have aucceeded in navigating the Eastern oceans,
why not the Western ? We wait with great cariosity
for the results.
A new Medical Excitement. ? Great preparation
ia making in Boston and Philadelphia among the
Thomsomans, to come on here and fight the good
fight for Dr. Sweet, ahould he be indicted. It will be
a sweet concern. Next Monday the Grand Jury
meets, and then come* the tug of war. Probably
Sweet will be indicted. Why not indict half n dozen
other physicians at once? Don't all physicians kill
more than they cure?
Cobonir's Inquest.? The number of inquests
seem tn increase most rapidly. Three more were held
yesterday on individuals who died from destitntion,
int< mperance and exposure. One wns named Fran
cis Kerr, another John Bryam, and the name of the
other was unknown.
Another inquest was held at the Hospital on the
body of John J. Riley, a sailor, belonging to the
schooner Amanda. He got benumbed with the cold
yesterdsy whilst he was working on hoard the schoon
er ; he fell between two vessels snd his chest was
laiumed so m'ich that he died a few hours after he
was taken te the hospital. Vetdiet. accordingly.
Cocstof Common Plbas ? Wednesday, Jan. 31. ?
Before Judge UlshoefTer.
George S. Smith vs. Zdah B. Hoax. ? This was an
action brought to recover 879, (the amount for board
ing, lodging, washing, and doing for Mr. Hoax, Mrs.
H<?ax, and the two little Hoaxes. The parties hoard
ed at the National Hotel, then kept by Mr. Watson.
Mr. Watsonand Mr. Hoax had some money transac
tions, and an account current with each other. Mr.
W'ntson transferred the hotel to Smith, and went to
Bangor. Smith roald not make both ends meet. He
first docked the boarders of their dinners, and then
drove tin m ont of the house and shut it up. Whrn
Watson came back from Bangor, to his utter asto
nishment, he found his hou?ewas as Byron says ?
- ? " Iti. horn* rt? more ?
A thing in human feeling* the mo?t Tying"?
so he vvrtM tn the American. Smith sued Honx for
the S7P, a? above. Watson swore that he revoked the
assignment he made to Smith. The Judge said if
this wns so, the jury must find for the defendant ; but
if tli")- found for the plaintiff, they must not awnrd
hitu the price ol the dinners which his hoarders did
not rat. because they were never cooked. The jury
found fur the defendant.
Pom k? Jan. 31.? Posmhly the simple adage, that
" honest v is th? best policy," was never more truly
exemplified than m the following ca<? which came
before the Police yesterday. It appears that a deep,
cunning Yorkxhireman, tfflm d Joseph M< reatroy,
who had been living at the town of Warsing, Ulster
County, contrived, a few nights since, to break into
| the faetory of Mr. John Cue. of that place, and st.al
I therefrom several pieces of cloth, of different colors
1 to the vilue of 1200.
Having obtained this booty, Joe was suddenly
?ei7ed with the mmlndie in pays or home sicknea*
?Hid mnde tracks for th? south in the direction ??f
\rw York. At the fir*t ferry he eroded, after com
mitt ng tin robbery, he traded s?ine of the c'oth for a
v ateh, and having e 'nchided the bargain, exclaimed,
"with tins watch I m<>sn to time the packet arr as to
Fngland. I'm tired of Amenea; there's no honest?
in the people, nor m thetr rulers. I'm going to at
tend the coromtion or Victoria, and then end my days
in lionem old f'.nnlanti!"
>H? told his name, paid his bill, and paaaed oa ; the
next night he traded seine more c'.oth for mbm boots
and a hat. Butbare was the begin rung of his bad lack ;
the boots pinched his feet, he swapped them for aome
shoes, and of these the soles parted from the upper
leathers, and at last he reached the city in a pair of
alippers. His hat waa blown from his head, and he
had to buy a for cap; his fur oap was stolen and he
supplied its place with cloth.
On reaching the city, his first movement was to
secure a berth on board the Columbus? his second
was to get drunk and tumble into that berth, and al
most as quickly to tumble out of it. He then tried to
regain his berth, but by mistake tot into a berth in
which a very pretty young girl lay sleeping "calm
and unruffled as a summer's sea." She never having
been accustomed to have a man sleep with her under
any circumstances, much less a man with his boots
and breeches on, screamed stentaciously, as any la
dy would under similar circumstances, and leaped
out of bed, to ihe equal astonishment of Joe and his
fellow passengers.
The mistake being rectified, and the lady and Joe
snugly lodged in their respective places of reBt, the
remainder of the ni^ht passed without interruption.
Morning came, and brought with it no cessation of
Joe's troubles. He had hard y reached the deck be
foro he dropped into the dock. He had hardly got
out of this difficulty before lie got inio another of a
still more serious and lasting character in perfect ver
ification of the proverb, that "there is no peace lor
the wicked !"
As soon n she was dragged ont of the dock, he went
into a collie house and called for tea, coffee and tur
key, and not only began to eat turkey, but also to
" talk Turkey !"
By this tuno Mr. Cue reached this city, having
tracked Joe from town to town, taking his own cue
of his course, by the cloth he had disposed o! at sun
dry times and in divers places. He accordingly made
his deposition at the police office, and the matter be
ing entrusted ?o the management of Welsh, one of
our smartest officers, he and Bowyer very soon found
out Mr. Joe, snugly seated in a restaurateur's, regaling
himself with the good things of this life.
" Mr. Mercatroy, 1 presume," paid Welsh.
"You do presume, Sir, most d oly," said Joe,
"but that happens to be my name!''
"You're a Yorkshirem.-tn, 1 believe ?"
"I'm a York, and I'm proud of it; and what's
more, 1 shall soon see old York, for I'm about to
leave New York and bed d loit!"
"Well, then, York, you're wanted," said Welsh.
"Well, my dear fellow, whatever vou want, you
mnst be quicn about, for I shall leave thisd d dis
honest country by the first boat."
On Welsh telling his errand, he b? came completely
chepfallen, sayiug. "I wouldn't ha' cared so much if
one of my own countrvmen had caught me, bnt being
York, I do so despise being done by a Yankee !"
But done he was, and done brown, too, and lodged
in bridewell, till- he can he sent to Ulster county.
What forms a coincidence very singular is, that
when Welsh went in to arrest him, he was singing
" Oh' he that will not drink hi* tiil,
Till he can't stand on his fret.
May ln> b? clapped into Bridewell,
And 1 pat in hi??ent!"
Instead of whieh, he himself was put there. On
searching his sea stures, Bowyer found them to com
prise the following items : ?
3 lemons,
3? lbs. beef,
2 sixpenny loaves,
10 gallons of rum.
"Only on<3 ha'portn of bread to all this sack," in a
voyage across the Atlantic. It was a charity to put
him "on the right lack !"
Wednesday, .Inn. 31, 0 P. M.
Tof market for exchange opened generally heavily, and the
rate* pave way on the different points of valuation, full one per
cert, aa compared with last packet day. On England, desira
ble bills wereatild at 109. Efforts were made to bring the rate*
to Sf a t| On France, the market or>ene<l at S.W.? sales
shortly made, afterward* currently at 5.27|f., and bills drawn
by Soother* banks at 5.30f. On Hamburg,* few sales nt 3AJ a
36. On Amsterdam, 401 a 4#Jc. per faild-r. The general de
cline ia tail one per cent, nor was there much dene.
Various causes are assigned for the fallof exchange, the prin
cipal ones being the great export of rotten ? tlie scarcity of mo
ney? the curtailment of the banks? and the consequent little
demand asticipated for European goods in the approaching
spring operations Konr packets tail toWay. It is calculated
that they take 5,000 bales of cotton? valued at 120#, OH. These
large shipments have of ourse formed the basis of the exchange
operation*, and crowded tbe market with the sellers, thus cas
ing a fall in the price by Uie great supply. The continued i tu
portaiion o( foreign grain would, under other circumstances,
lend to counteract tbeae remits -bat it is now evident that all
the foreign grain operations, b;i*? d on tbe false statements made
by the Journal of Commerce and other prints last fall, will turn
out extremely disastrous.
In relation to tbe movement* of the banks, we have beard
of same novel purposes. During last week, we learn, on good
authority, that aevaral of them began to change their restric
tive policy. It is calculated that |:00,000 were loaned out
More than usual. Coupled with this fact, there i* a serf*
r us consultation among several of our leading financier*, whe
ther it wonld net be the best policy to take things a* they are,
is make no further effort ubsut the resumption of specie pay
menu, but at once to launch out, extend their loans, encour
age trade, and foater commerce with such a currency as tbey
have? in short, te abandon tk? rrttrtetin pviiry at en cr. It is
very obvious that daring the locnfoco war between the gov
ernment and the United State* Bank, there can be little hope
of a positive and sueee*aful resumption of specie payments.?
Mr. BMdle will not resume until the governme nt cense it* hos
tility, nor will the government stop iU clamor abeut the sub
treasury, till it t* ranted from i'.s present occupancy. By en
larging the currency, and keepieg it steadily at a certain mo
derate rate, proportionate to lb" want* of trade, the hank* ran
avail lhem*elve? of the same elements which the United Ststea
and other bank* are doing. It is utterly impossible for tbem
L> stand any longer still in their present position. They must
either gn down or go forward.
If this policy should succeed, a new suspension law will be
necessary to prolong tbe existence of ibo'rcharters. The pas
sage of the small note law will aid, to some extent, tbe same
line of policy. Throughout the country, the banks and tbe
commercial interests, except in New York, have operated, as
?ssal, on their It convertible currency, and althonrb tbe *>*
t?m present* difficulties and obstacles, It I* certainly better than
none. At this moment with a renewal of the *s pension law,
and the passage of the small note bill, our banks coald extend
i heir circulation flO.OOO 000, and their loans, based en deposits,
tJ0.000.no* Neither would the currency l?e much depreciated
by these additional issues? but the community would be re
invigorated and siiled until a more quiet time returned when
tbe great monetary interests cosM be se.tled on n firmer
These views are beginning to prevail among several sf our
leading financier*, Probably, a* toon s* the reply of tbe Phils
delphis banks shall hsve been received, ti.ey may bring them
to a besd and take s new depsrture. The Philadelphia ban! s
will not resu ne? nor can our bank* either for tbe present.
Inland exchange* sre getting s little wor.eagais? particu

It Is now bell' ved that the *?btreasury scheme will be de
