Sometime since we copied an article going the rounds of the papers, to the effect that Gen. Taylor had said that if the north ern States attempted to interfere with the sub ject of slavery that he was for drawing the sword and throwing away the scabbard. This expression has been overhauled by those who were instrumental in setting it afloat. So Mr Claiborne has again written that he is desir ous that the matter shall be correctly stated, and therefore he states that Gen. Taylor said nothing about slavery in the territories, but spoke entire ly of the interference by the north with the rights of the slaveholders in the States; and that he studiously avoids giving any opinion in regard to his course on the subject of slavery in the ter ritories. From Yucatan. 'The barque Florida, which took down 850 volunteers, for ser vice in Yucatan, returned yesterday, leav ing Sisal on the 10th inst. The troops were all well, and most of them had reach ed Merida. The papers say they conduct themselves with great order and propriety. In Merida on the 4th inst. was celebrat ed a great victory jiamel by the whites over the Indians in Peto. The details are not given, but it is spoken of as being de cisive of the war. Between this victory and the arrival of the volunteers, the Yuca tecos are full of joy and exultation. A Cute Chap.

Our attention has been culled to an article in the Wilmington Commercial in regard to the above corporation. The late statement of the condition of the Bank shows that it has invested funds in U. S. stocks. This has been objected to, on the ground that the Bank, seeing the depressed state of the exchanges, the scarcity of money, &.c, should have discounted more freely, instead of investing its funds in government stock. To this the friends of the Bank reply that the Bank must have a certain amount of specie to meet liabilities, and that government stock is equivalent to specie, and at the same time draws interest To this the writer in the Commercial replies, that the excuse of the Bank will not do; for by referring to the statements of 43-'46-4S, he finds that in the two former years, the Bank had less specie and discounted more notes, than in the fall of IS 4S. So, of course the Bank must find some other excuse for tightening the money market. The Wilmington Gazette, two weeks ago, pub lished an article which made the affairs of the Bank look rather blue ; and although the Gazette was condemned for the publication, we suspect very strongly, that the Gazette has " let the cat out of the bag;" in other words, has stated what many are afraid is too true, to wit: that many of the debts due to the Bank, and counted among its resources, are not worth a copper; and hence its disability or disinclination to serve one at the expense of offending another, which it would have to do if it loaned to the safe trader, and re fused the doubtful one. v Such are the baneful consequences of favorit ism, which prevail in banking operations, and act like at blighting mildew upon, commercial communities. t&- Professor A. B. Longstreet, the well re membered author of the most amusing "Georgia Scenes," has been appointed President of the Centenary College, at Jackson, Louisiana, says the Natchez Free Trader. riie Senate then proceeded to the consid eration of the unfinished business, being the Resolution of Mr Berry, calling for certain information in relation to Internal Improvements, and the liabilities of the ' State therefor, &c. the question being on the amendment of Mr W oodhn, calling lor similar information from all the other States. Mr Wood fin modified his amendment, after which, further proceedings were sus pended by a message from the other House, and the Senate proceeded' to the special order, being the election of 4 Trustees of the University. Upon resuming the unfinished business. the question was taken upon the amend ment, which was rejected Mr Joyner moved to amend the resolu tion by adding, in substance and that the Public Treasurer further report wheth er, in his opinion, the benefits, &c. to the State, have not been an ample indemifica tion for any losses sustained," which was adopted. Mr Berry moved to strike out " Swamp Lands " from the Resolution, which was rejected. Mr Berry moved to amend the Resolu tion, by striking out 1855 and inserting 1816. The amendment was adopted.
