The Knox vlll Mercury of th 96th contains sn article on th subject of wild cat Institutions, at th conclusion of which wa find the following paragraph! "In mentioning the Poet, however, In Ihla connection, w design to Impute to it no Im proper motive, but onlv to admonish it that an opinion prevail extensively that new and dnnbtful Bank sometime eceommodate publisher who ar in distress for something els than mere money consideration. If the hditur of the Post were onnresaed with debt and w ar informed he ia not We should suppose from hia paragraphs that he nsa oeen promised some relief. While tnuking our acknowledgment to th Mercury for ita rather insinuating ug geitinn, w may remark that we need no sc. rommodntiom from Bank nt thia lime and hnH) w never shall; at the same lime, If the "opinion" alluded to above about newspaper publisher prevailed much more extensively than it does, It would not determine the Post's xpreasinne about Bnnks, or any tiling else upon wliichjt might feel inclined to apeak. "Opinion" public opinion Is fre quently In mr Prejudice nearly always; and when such ia th fact, wo have no ra sped Tor either; i W are aa much opposed to wild est banks aa our neighbor of the Mercury; but- we have no idea of pitching Into Banking institutions generally becauso few of the large number may happen to prove unsound, or because there may have been one or two brtakt in our own and of the State. And we believe it possible, too, that banks, like individuals, may sometimes he unfortu nate nnd forced to break without justly sub jecting themselves to the charge of win. dllng. Nor is it any evidence that a mnn dc algna to rob nnd defraud the public, because be lakes the capital honestly acquired in nno. ther branch or business and goes to banking upon it. The indiscriminate war which portion of the presa of Tennessee is waging against Banka, ia doing more than anything elss to make I ennesseo money worthless beyond our own state limits. Newspaper men are proverbial aa bad financiers; yet one half the, edilore in Hie State have been, for the last aix weeks, writing away on the subject of banking aa industriously as they could have done bad Ihey really understood something of what tiiey were writing about. Some of our editorial brethren seem to have been fa. vored with s vision, wherein they were coin landed to write, nnd In order to obey the injunction they furnish a good deal that could ba iolt unwritten without nnv serious dam age to the public interests. We menu no of fense, but if they would tAirt more, and irrie less, particularly on the auliet of "Bnnks and Banking," much greater benefits would be accomplished. And we will add. for the information or our friend of th .Mercury, il.nt we are no admirer of that prudish virtue which is always ready to regard a difference of opinion na dictated by improper motives. Is a Fix In the Legislature of Indiana, which h is just ndj turned, according to the law limiting the duration of ita session, both the revenue and appropriation biils failed to pass, and consequently there is no law to collect taxes during the next two years, neither is there any law to pay the salaries ol'Slate officers or even the members of the legislature. There is money enough on hand In carry on the Statu government for the ensuing year, but there will be no luw to authorize it being paid out for any purpose. And so the frisky State of Indiana ia in some what of rfix. Beside, it is said that Gov. Willard has expressed his fixed resolve not to call the Legislature together, for any pur pose, until they meet again two yoars from now, according to law. t3T An iiniusing incident is said to have been developed nt Washington with refer ence to th California nppuintmenls. Not withstanding the confidence and self suffi ciency of the manner in which the Senators J California made their barguins and por. tinned off tho "government patronage," it now appears that they uere not, as they liuve very frankly acknowledged, been con- suited at all! Neither "Dave" nor the Dr. has had the first giain of influence in the premises, and But hannn, in a manner the most admirable, b is treated their prepostei us barter and assumption with the contempt it deserved. If any influence was regarded it must have been tho councils of ex-Sen ator W-ller, as he has been understood to favor B. F.

To all tht World and the ml nf Mankind: 'I'll Undersigned, citizens ol Litll Med dlington, appointed committee by th meet ing held yet-rday at the Bell tavern, have nnd th subj ct of the pressure In money matter now upon us, under earnest consid eration, and beg leave to aubtuit th following report; First, w premise to prevent all cavil and criticism nn th part ol certain persons who ara disposed to Isugli at th Idea of a town meeting, even in Little Meddlir.glon, giving direction to the public aenlimentof the coun try upon money mntter ao aa to remedy the evil under which th people arc grosnlng, that there are folks in every community who ar not hair aa smart aa they think; thai in this Instance the men who are sneering st the action of the town mei-ting, are smarting under the disappointment of not being placed npon the committee ; and that this meeting wn not gotten np at the instance of any one directly interested in Ihe Bank, but was the happy suggestion of some of our most entor prising citizens who are anxious to push Little Mcddlinglnii (and themselves) forward in the public notice citizens who feel the neceseltv of doing something, and who think they tee now they hate dune it. Therefore w are not ashamed, laugh w ho may. Ours is a country or Immense resources. and just aa Ihey begin to be developed, we are on the verge of general distress and wid spread ruin. Any man who will read Simon Sugg on theTcll box" will be nt no loss to trace our present condition lo ita true source. Faro Banks have multiplied in our State to an unprecedented extent; they have mnd, money like mils; times have b. en flush with the bankers; they have lent money to their friends whenever called upon; a spirit or wild speculation has sprung up in Little Meddling. ton; our people have purchased goods, bull brick store-bouses and even commenced to erect a steam saw-mill upon Hits borrowed capital, r-lying upon further loons to meet their liabilities. Everything seems to be mov ing on swimmingly, when In, right in the midst of this state of things, the Monte and many of IlieChiicknluck Dunks lime engaged in an uncalled for war upon the old Faro B anks playing the white check game, nnd every time they run a stack up to five dollars, drawingoul the money and sinking It. These faro banks are sound and solvent, and in almost every instance are the only banks lenuing money and relieving the wants or the community. But the season r adversity has come the trowel has ceased to rim from the walls of Ihe brick store the boiler lies rust. ing at Ihe site f the steam saw.mill ginning and feathers, dried apples and goober-peas in n word, every article of trade in the Little Meddlingtnn market ha declined. General gloom and emptiness of pockets pervade the entire commercial community of bur lately flourishing town. Without intending any invidious distinc tions, we give as a tamiilt of the lucky runs now being made upon our best institution, the extraordinary run upon the Branch of the Bengal Tiger in this town. Within th. I. tSWky nights our' information Is and e deem it reliable that from four to fict thou. Band dollar; have been drawn from t ie sale of'tlu's Bank. Tlieseriinscann.it break tin bank or drive it lo the wall, but have forced it to curtail and may compel il lo cease entire its loans, and thus bring upon the community ii universal panic. Now the Faro Banks had a perfect right to refuse to turn for Mexican clipped quarters at more than their true value; and although Ihe efforts of the Monte dealers to force them lo do so, have, through Ihe assistance of some of the native Chuck dealers, subjected them lo some temporary inconvenience, nod even lost, yet the citizens of Utile Meddlingtnn. who have probably been Ihe greatest suffer ers, and Ihe public generally, imitating onr iisiuierested example, will sustain the Bengal Tiger in uny evasion and even a suspension I Its own honest debts, an it continue to afford us the necessary facilities and accom modations for the transaction of our busi ness. It ia more in nnger than in sorrow. Hint we come now lo spe k of the Chuck Banks These bunks were organizi d nt a very enrlv dny. The committee regret In foel called upon lo say, that with few honorable excep tions, the Chuck Banks ol' the State or Frank land, have fallen into the hands or Gamblers, and instead of benefiting, are actually oppos ing the people. A a committee, looking alone to the beat interests of the country, (and squinting slightly tit onr own,) we feel bound to cull pub ic attention to this subject. and lo suggest to the people of every county irrespective or parlies, that these concerns frequently use load, d dice, and will nol lend out a led, except at the most exorbitant rates, and then requiring a deposit of nt leswt double the value of Ihe loan In the way of eollulerala. Let ua demand their breaking vp or such n modification as will aicure the "f'ncililiea" needed by the people, nnd force themfntosuch it line of loans nnd the transaction of such legitimate) banking operations as their tolera tion originally contemplated. We beg leave to suggest lo the common people, such as farmers, mechanic and tra ders, the propriety of milking their deposits onijfin the Bengal Tiger, from which we can aotuetime borrow It when w need "facili ties." Retolved, that a a committee we set our faces, which ar aa hard a flint, against this unjust and uncalled Tor war upon our favorite Institution by the small and unaccommodating Mont and Chuck dealers, whose supreme selfishness leads them to diaregsrd Ihe inter est of the community, or the ur. dit of Ihe Bengal Tiger at bom or abroad. Rfnhed, thai wa. request our fellow citi zens generally In other portion of th State and in the various counties thereof, to follow our example and speak out upon thia subject, regardles or wh t carping fool may any, AaioiW.thnt psal experience havingebnwn that running upon th Litll Mcddlhigton bank Is a dangerous operation, w deprecate, and denounce tho author of, every - such effort.;- -: - - '; " ' Retolctd, that as th only soure wa can look to for relief in oar prwawt Ricrgeney I th branch of lb Bengal Tiger at this place, which haa always been liberal In It eoomda. lion, under all the clrcnmstamv, the com mittee respectfully suggest to the borrower ofthl town, to take Id nhole matter Into consideration and If Ihey deem it necessary that Ihey appoint a new committee. ennsisllnif of th asm members ss the present one, to repair forthwith, at the expense of the citi zen of Little Meddlinglon. and intercbanm views syllh th keeper of the parent animal, on the Importance of continuing the loan at this ioint, and th Importance of again "atok Ing" our branch. . .

Resohrd, That we congratulate Ihe good citizens who have honored themselves in selecting n as their commiltee, fl.nl thin time anyhow, we have got Ihe start.

Respect fully, Tim Comm ittei. A public speaker, who was rather fa molts for short disceurai-s, was reproved on a certain occasion Tor undue brevity. "The nil dience would have borne a good denl more," id the complainant. "I hope so," replied the lecturer; "bal the question ia, not how much ihey will orar.but how much they will bear with pleasure; lor, beyond that point, there is no profit to the bearer or honor to the speaker. To all which we say, like the man who made the nnmble short speech on the English Hustings, "Ditto to Mr. Burke I Br- yity is ma only the soul o! wh, but ihe piih nf orn lory, mid Ihe surety of declainnlioii." We hope the candidates this spring will remember this, and make their speeches short, strung and to the point, A long discourse either from the hustings or the pulpit is almost al ways a diffuse one, and we have known many ol bth, which would have been twice as weighty, if Ih. y had been bill half as long.
