Our exposures of the rottenness and corrup tion of the national banks have had the double effeot of arousing public indignation against the infamous system, and of alarming tbe mo nopolists connsctod with it. This system has been weighed in the balance and found want ing ? found to be full of corruption and oppres sion, and those interested in it see their doom, like Belshazzar of old, in the handwriting on tbe wall. In their alarm for the fate of their monopoly they aro preparing to head off these exposures and tbe growing disgust of the people by a combined effort to buy up Con gress. We hare been informed that a circular, emanating from a New York national banking bouse, has been sent to tbe national banks throughout tbe country, assessing them one sixteenth of one per oent on their capital for this corruption fund to buy up members ot Congress, with a view to defeat opposition and perpetuate their monopoly. ThU is just what we might expect. Such corrupt institutions oaa only exist, if tbey can exist at all, through corruption of the national legislature. The amount proposed to be raised for this purpose is probably only the nucleus of a larger cor ruption fund ; for the banks can well afford to spend many millions in this way. We ba ve little fhith In the Integrity or patriotism of many members of tbe present Congress, and bavs no doubt that they can be bought What tbe price of some may be we cannot tell ? ten thousand dollars or a hundred thousand ? but whatever it may be tbe banks have ample means and no scruples abont using them. Besides a great many members are interested in the banks as man agers, stockholders or directors of them, or in tbe ready accommo lation they get from them to secure their favor and votes. Then that fourth estate of the republic, the Washington lobby, which the banks hare beon lining for some tfm pan, will be largely subsidized through the corruption fnnd. But we gira the monopolist* warning that all their money, schemes and appliances will be of no avail. Their fate in doomed. They cannot boy the independent press. and it will continue to pour not shot into their rotten institutions till they nr.' sunk under the waves of popular indignation. They may buy up Congressmen, subsidise the lobby, rally capitalists to their support, and enter into political combinations with Chief Justice Chase, or other Presidential aspirants and wire-pullers, but common sense will prevail. The honest and industrious masses must see and feel the evils of this mon strous and oppressive monopoly, and will de mand its speedy destruction. Every dsy or two we have to record tbe col lapse of some national bank. The system has only been in operation two or three years, and already about twenty banks have collapsed. Latterly they have bean going under more rapidly than at first It required a little time, but not long, as we have seen, to devolop their character and condition. Tbe last smash hoard of waa that of the National Bank of Vlcks burg, which occurred only a few days ago. Just before that banks at New Orleans, Mem phis and other parts of the country broke. We need not enumerate all these hilures or the bad character of some of them. The publio is fhmiliar with the facts. From the astounding and reliable disclosures made by tbe apecial ^correspondent of tbe IftaaLD in tbe West we may expect to bear soon of a general crash in that part of tbe country. Several of the banks there have been driven to the last extremity to meet the demand for even a portion of the gov ernment fands deposited with them. It is known that generally they have been speculat ing very extensively in grain, flour and other provisions? buying up everything they could get bold of for the purpose of forestalling and controlling the markets. This was tbe real cause of the high price of flour and provisions, for there was plenty in the West. They have been using the people's money deposited with them" by the Treasury Department, and the eurrency, which rightly belongs to the people, but which tbe government has given to tbem, for raising tbe pries of the necemarles of life. Tbe workiac ?illlsas of aw people have been paying tor flour and other things a hundred per oent or upwards more than they should bare paid, beoaose the national bank monopo lists forestalled the markets. But these specu lators of the national banks have overreached themselves. With large stocks on hand and with the prospect ot an abundant orop every* where, the prioe has fallen, and eontinues to fall, In spite of them. The consequence is they are embarrassed and on the verge of bank ruptcy. They are struggling desperately, as our correspondent has shown, to keep their heads above water, but, If we mistake not, a good many of them must soon sink. We have heard the rumbling of the storm which must burst over them before long. All this shows that great monopolies, fostered by the government, only oreate reckless specu lation. The more privileges they have and the more they make the more extravagant, op pressive and reokless they become. The na tional banks have a dear gift of twenty millions a year in profits on their currency, every dollar of whioh belongs to the people, and should be husbanded by the government, besides other enormous privileges, swelling their income to an incredible amount ? to an amount approach ing, perhaps, a hundred millions a year? yet with all this many of them are on the brink of bankruptcy. There is reason to fesr that, through the shortsighted stupidity of Mr. McCul looh in trusting to these rotten institutions, the government wilt soon find its deposits swept away by the coming storm. It is highly pro bable, too, that the crash will be so general that Mr. Spinner will not be able to realize enough from the securities deposited with him to pay the note holders, and that the govern ment may have to make them good if it should be able. Talk of repudiation ! Why, we may be nearer that thin many imagine, looking at the condition of these national banks, at the increasing burdens of the govern ment, and at the declining revenue. One of tho first things Congress should do on assem bling in July should be to institute a thorough investigation into tho condition and working of the national banks. It will not take long to find out the monstrous evils oonneoted with them. In faot we can (tarnish the evidence. Then let the act creating them be repealed at once and the whole infamous system be swept away. The New Mexican Mtaleter. f We publish elsewhere a defence of llr. Ot terbourg by a friend of his, who disolaims the report that the newly appointed Mexican Min ister ever made any attempt to hare the em pire of Mexico recognized. It is not oar inten tion to make misstatements of any kind, and mayhap, in the hnrry of the telegram, mistakes crept Into it; if so, it is to be regretted. The appointment, however, of Mr. Otterbonrg is, at this juncture of Mexican affairs, most inop portune, and Mr. Seward could not hare made a worse blunder. The naming of Mr. Camp bell was sufficiently unfortunate. This is the worst blow yet struck at our Mexican affairs, and threatens to throw them into an even worse condition than they were before. With all re spect to Mr. Otterbourg's private character as a citizen, he is the last man who should have received the appointment He is a foreigner, speaks the Spanish language imperfeotly, and even the language of the country he is to represent is not fluently at bis command. Had the appointment been for some other country we oould not have complained; for we know that Mr. Seward is little disposed to have M a foreign minister any one who dares to think for himself, and who is other than a mere clerk of the Stato Department The present appoint ment is nothing but ruin to our Mexican inter ests, and Mr. Otterbourg can only show his good sense by refusing a commission which the Senate cannot ratify if they have the slight est respect for our relations with our sister re public. At this delicate point in Mexican affairs, when a minister has to grasp and shape the policy of our government for the next century, we want one of our best, our ablest men. We want a man, moreover, who stands high with the Mexioan people ? one whom they can re spect and one whose dignity of charaoter and personal attributes will enable him to handle the great questions that are to arise in our Mexican contact The liberal government, although spurred almost to desperation by the demands of tbe nation to shoot Maximilian, have risked being overturned by the popular clamor, and, at our request, have retained him a prisoner, evidontly awaiting the arrival of a proper minister from the United States to con fer with us relative to the fate of the royal filibuster. The Bret thanks we give them for acceding to our request is a gross insult by tbe appointment of a man for whom tbey have but little respect who cannot represent us as we should be represented, who speaks neither our language nor their*, who understands nothing of the great questions which are wait ing for settlement, who can only damage American interests throughout Mexico, who will not receive from the Mexican people that honor due to our national representative, and who can only, in fact misrepr<?sent the United States. We already have a sufficient number of ministers abroad to damage our contact and commerce with other countries more than the next ten administrations can repair; but this last act of tbe State Department, in reference to a country that reqn'res one of our ablest men, is worse than all the rest combined. Mr. Seward must have experienced an unusual scintillation of genius when he made this ap pointment If the brain of the United States Senate is hit by tbe same apark truly we shall despair of the nation. Revtvhui the OM titae. the same time that New England philan thropists and politicians were ringing the changes on tbe barbarism of slavery New Bog land shipowners, it was known, were engaged in tbe slave trade, Brother Jonathan impart tiallj making his gsme on both sides of the great question. It would seem now also (hat New England exercises a double activity through ber deep interest in the nigger. New England radical orators are preaching politics all over the South and telliig tbe niggers bow to vote and who to vote for. Other New Englanders, convlnoed that 8ambo was happier In slavery, are doing what tbey may to make him happy from their point of view. Negroes from the Southern States are said to have beon started ostensibly for Liberia and landed aud sold for slavee in Cuba "by Boston skipper*." This story comes from North Carolina. Boston will deny it, of course; but that city or.ght to have an Investigation, to whitewash, all its skippers very nieely, and prove the jtory hor ribly and terrifically Mm. PkrtT DfMriulutlM la the SmMu The Union league councils in the Southern ' Slates, which for some time past had been forced Into existence, like exotics, in the radi cal hothouse, appear to be dirindllng away. We notioe by some of the Georgia papers that the leagues in that State are dissolving them selves bjr almost unanimous rotes of the mem bers, who assert that "they were deceived in regard to the end and aim of the organisation, and will not consent to do what is required of them." Now the question is, what was required of them? What was the objeot held out to them as an inducement to join or form these elubst What were the eonditlons demanded of them? If it was represented by the poli ticians that the easiest way to reconstruction was through the channel of the Union league organisation, many honest Union men might hare been led into it who have since learned that it meant party aggrandisement rather than the good of the South. Many Union leagues also may hare discovered that the or ganisation was getting to be too mush under the control of federal offloeholden, a olass of men in the South who are playing fast and loose with Congressional intrigue and Presidential patronage, who are radicals of the Ant water to the radicals, and good Johnson men to those who expect to find a Southern Moses in Andrew Johnson. Almost every one of the two classes comprising the oflloeholders and the radioal leaden not *ln offlce is an aspirant either for a seat in Congress, which he hopes to obtain when the South Is reoonstruoted, or for some preferment in the line of foderal patronage, sueh as registrar of eleotion, assessor or col lector of internal revenue, or commissioner under the Bankrupt law. The Union leagues in the Southern cities, being oomposed mainly of these olasses, can not be expected to become rery popular with those who really desire to aocept tbe situation, and to se3 their section restored to its original politioal status. Thus it appears that the radi cals have hit upon the wrong kind of ma chinery, and it will not work. There are other reasons, perhaps, for the failure of the Union leagues In the Sonth, and they are to bs found in the inevitable discord between the races, which is manifesting itself by the unwilling ness, in most instances, of the white agitators to admit (he blacks into their oonncils, and th e counteracting efforts of the negro agitators, many of whom are men of great intelligence and aoumen, to form exclusive black organi sations, of a seoret and, it is alleged, an oath bound character, in which the right to hold offloe, sit on jnrios, and exercise other newly acquired privileges, an not only vigorously asserted, but made the sine quh non of negro support of the radioal platform; although the recent notion of the colored people in Mobile, in declining to acoept office, would seem to show a mon sensible spirit in that class in this particular locality. To this mixed up oondltion of politioal soci ety in the South may be attributed the misad ventures of the radioal programme, which seem to be gathering pntty thick abont that party, and may leave them, after all, with an lndls posable elephant upon their hands, In the shape of negro suffrage. 0?r NalaW 8*lileri. Throughout oar States, and especially is New York oity, we are constantly meeting with men some of whom have loet an arm, others a i leg, and other* who have, In defending their ! country, been unfitted for gaining a lir elihood after being mastered oat of the United State# service. It anything were required to make a man disgusted with his country and ite govern, ment this would be sufficient On all sides of as we find the men who staked their lives for the upholding of our nationality now blacking boots, peddling neckties, or frequently obliged, after saving the life of the nation, to beg of the cowards whose courage did not permit them to enter the field. " Beg or starve," say* the United States to her brave defenders, and beg ar starve is forced upon them, while there are thousands of petty offices in the gift of the gov ernment which might be filled by these maimed heroes whom the government loves to dis honor. Not only is this the case with the sol diers, but with the wife* and children of the dead men who, by yielding up their lives, stretched a bulwark of blood along the line of secession. Their wives are now, in hundreds of cases, supporting their families by washing, sewing, or in menial employments, while hun dreds more have, to the shame of the nation, died In almshouses, and some have even starved to death in thoir fruitless attempts to get the miserable pittance allowed them by the country in the form of a pension. We want such institutions as are found in the Old World for the care of our soldiers who have lost their limbs, and there is room for justice, not benevolenc*, in the treatment of the widows and orphans of those who have died on the battle field. Givt? us more legislation in behait of justice and lees In behalf of corrup tion and contracts, otherwise the people will begin to make comparisons between monarchi cal and republican governments that will not be favorable to the latter. Tke Crop*. The accounts of the crops Which we continue to receive from all parts of the country are of the most cheering character. If we do not bave too much rain within the next fortnight the harvest will be one of the most abumlant that has been known for many years. In the South the grain crops promise to more than supply the wants of the population, a larger quantity of land being sown with cereals than is usual in that region. The importance of this fact Will be appreciated. It will do more to forward the work of reconstruction thao all the efforts that the politicians are making. As regards the country generally, the prospect brings with it a strong sense of relief. Speculators bad driven the price of flour to such a point that the work ing classes, in spite of iacreasod wages, found it difficult to make both ends meet. The mono polists have had their turn, and now will bave to disgorge some of their ill-gotton gains. Unless they are sustained by the national banks in the effort to hold back stocks the price of flour must continue to tumble until It reaches the point at which it stood at the | commencement of the war. If the national banks assist them in trying to arrest this downward tendency they will add to the disfavor with which they are already regarded. Their aid in the matter could in any case be only temporary, aod their managers will do well to reflect on the consequences to their own Interests from the pursuance of so unpopular a ooursQ, With abundant crocs North and South I there will come Increased confidence and a general revival in the trade of the country. ^ 'he difficulties which embarrass us ia coonec I do, with the South will vanish under the Influ ence Ok* '*"8 prosperous state of things, and if we can ow1'? 8teer clear of external complica tions it will but a few year* to relieve us from the lotfcl of taxation which now op presses as. _________ BfaxlMfHaa ma# <?a'm< In yesterday's Hi***-* we /mblished certain letters relating to the slkini of Mexico, one of them from to Lare.%, President of the Council of Ministers in Mevdeo; another from Lares to both, on the authori ty of Minister Romero, declared to b? genuine. If these letters are what they pretend to be, then it Is manifest that as fhr back as the be ginning of February Maximilian was con riaoed of the hopelessness of the cause which he represented and of the worthlessness of Ihe men on whom he was foroed to rely. It seeiw to us equally clear that the reason why thsr struggle was not then abandoned was less on ' account of any false pride or unworthy ambi tion on the part of Maximilian than because be felt unwilling to abandon the men who bad acted with him to a fate which, it seemed to tbcm, it was impossible to escape. Pity it is that Maximilian did not take advantage of the opportunity which then presented itself of making good his escape, and thus of leaving Mexico to settle its own affairs. But that he did not do so is not to be set down to any un worthy motive, but rather to a chivalrous sen timent whioh high-minded men everywhere will be willing to acknowledge. If Maximilian ever finds his way back to Miramar, we advise him without delay to give to the world a full and faithful account of his Mexican experi ence. Unless we greatly mistake, such a work would win for him a greater and more enduring reputation than his brief and undignified tenure of the imperial crown. Bi*GmrB?r Brown Reo*a?tmotl*a. Ex-Governor Joe Brown, of Georgia, is evi dently one of those men who understand what " taking time by the forelock" means. In his rooent speech in Milledgeville hs proclaimed himself in fhvor of any party whioh, after the admission of Georgia into the Union, should show the greatest disposition to stand by prin ciples which would tend to restore the pros perity of the South and the whole country. In this he has set his foot down upon a very safe base; but he more wisely defines the position which Georgia and the who4e South should oo oupy when he says that in selecting a party for support in the faturo he shall be guided by none of the predilections or prejudices of the past, as the war had settled all the old issues upon which parties were based. Herein he refleots in a great measure the opinion of the best minds in the South, who regard the result of the war as a finality in matters of opinion upon the right of seoession and other questions arising out of it, but are not quite prepared to swallow radical doctrines any more than they are disposed to ollng to the old democratic State rights Idea, whioh hu vanished with the war. It is a new party which must reconstruct the country, and that party is not to be found in the ranks of the radicals or the democrats, but must bs constituted by the people, with a popular leader like General Grant at their bead. When such a party presents itself par tisanship will have to give place to the broad expression of popular will, and Governor Brown and the other prominent men of the South, by following its standard, will find themselves on the safest and quickest road to reconstruction. Tki ImIu Scalp Dim*. From the musie that reaches as from the Plata, from Colorado Mid Nebraska, it is evi dent that the war danoe has eommeooed, and several thousand in Id savages have opened the ball. Army eoatraetors, Indian agents, oommisaioners, and ? ?Lv?<and other hangers on, hare at length succeeded In bringing the only too willing savage into open hostility with oar troops and the frontier settlers. How the war was brought on is not now the ques tion. The problem is how to finish it in the best manner. Certainly, as the whole frontier is aware, it can no mere be finished by regular troops than could our late rebellion ; and the only method is by the volunteer system, as proposed by the Governor* of tbo frontier Slates. We believe in fighting Indian* in the manner that they themselves fight, so that they will appreciate our efforts. It is a well known fact that thf>y laugh at our regular army, which rarely captures or kills anything but sick nqutw.i or tired out old men. Four or five frontier rcgimnnts of men who understand Indian warlfcre, and have an interest in seeing it ended at the earliest pomibla moment, are better than the whole regular army to place on the war path. The latter are too fond of their comfort", and think that It is just as well to take it easy and close up the affair in two or three years as to hurry up. Let ns hire organisations such as Governor Hunt, of Colo rado suggests, and we shall make *hort work of the redskina The oountry then will not groan so heavily under the expenses. hews ntoa raw otuun.
