StNATOit Ham tf iinO. The, N. Y. HeraU
names Senator Hammond, of South Carolina,
as a "Snnlhern Union Caiulidatu" for tho
Presidency in 1800. Wo were aware that
the hijjli-torn-il, conservative character of the
Senator' Ilarnwell Speech was eliciting
coiiinipnd.-.tion In nil directions East, West,
North and South but as tint idea prevails
largely with the democratic politicians that a
Southern man can never again th" reach the
Presidential Chair, we are apprehensive the
Charleston Convention would hardlv consent
to his nomination. However, the bare fact
Uuit a. Northern iiii.ashi.ikU.xuuXux.u tg.siiL':

to talk about. Mr. II aininnnd isn democrat,

SriRlTUAt.ls.it. The papers state that Dr.
Randolph, a celebrated Spiritoalixt, has re
cently recanted. In a lecture nt Utica, N. Y.,
n short time since, he gave it ns his opinion,
de'iborutely formed, that insanity and the
devil were at the bottom of Spiritualism.
The Doctor, wo suspect, is nt hmsl halfiiglil,
as the devil seems to have a hand in every
thing now-u-days, except, perhaps, editing
newspr.pvrs, and it is even thought by some
persons thai lit. occasionally assists our lo
cofuco brethren in that business.

Mississippi Legislature passed some law in

We learn from Mr. J. S. Brooks nnd Mr.

I wish to make to your hi'tory, are I hit

thnt capital was neetlel to represent mesa

ltsnks then were not ill succession chartered
lu prevent a "deticienev of papercirculatinii"
alune, but were crested that ths "coiiHietiiii!
interests of private nnR public espital" oiitfht
enure to the general tfoinl, and that capital,
ever striving in opposition to labor, might be
made cheaper, and labor, as a consequence,
better paid. 1 admit, sir, thut your statement
msy be iiougiued to embrae all this in your
very general phrase of "paper circulation,"
bul you will no doulit remember that there
came time when I tanks could not redeem
their "paper," and you will also remember
that in csnteqoeuce uf Ibis lbs paper sunk
far below a specie standard ; and if yon do
not remember the fact, 1 do, that the Sis.e
Itiitik notes sunk lower thia the others,
though backed by llie apparent credit of the
State, and that all f them were treated ex
actly as other represents! iveuol values, t'ar
ing a price in proportion aa the prospect of
their speedy realisation increased or diminish
ed. The lesson wss taught lhen-sit has been
repeated since, that any eireulatilsj which is
not bused on a legitimate trade in ifeiiiliniuie
articles of piodueeaud consumption, is Unfile)
to too serious fluctuation. to helitjit the
people as a mass. The lesson was tsi.gl.t
then, that a Uaok with na. ter of a million
of State stock, couhsflU as nood in all icpecls
ns one whose eul ire capital was owned by the
commonwealth; and the lesson bss been
luiight siuoe that State Hoods slid Stale

not money, and though they may be livpolh
eeated for sixty or even ninety cents on the
dollar, tliey are not cash, except in these
proportions, ,
1 have eliminated your history of the I'.nnti
solely to si ow you your positidii, uot as you
propose it to be, bul ns it is; not that your
notes have lieen returned nn your bancs by
the lli-okem, but b the iegitimnle operations
of commerce, aided, in a great degree, by
vonr . management. Tho ileduelions to be
draw a from tlie actual history of the Hanks,
ns exhibited in the lloctonlions of I heir circu
lation, nre not what you would hnve them lo
be The first is, that the paper of the L'nio.i
niul Planters' Hanks has been of a greater
virtue, -averaging nearer a specie si nndm d,
than the Mule I'.auk's paper. The second is,
that their cireolat ion has been larger, in po
portion to their capital, . I hsiM lint ol theSiote
coiise'iueiicei from Inc. Iwo Hist thul the
I ' ii ion nud Planters Hanks have been of
greater service lo the community generally,
and In the eouimeioial cummiiiiitv, than the
Stale Hank, Winn any oue makes tip his
mind on a favorite hobby it Is unplca.ahl to
be disturbed in his recreation, whither be
takes it daily, weekly, or quarterly, and 1
would not disturb it, but t hut yours is as
suming an alarming aspect to nil ynur fellow
citizens, who go nl'ooi or have any interest in
the money they earn or spend. Many of your
fellow-ciiirens avow th-ii-beli-.f (in town ami
country) that they prefer the paper of the
two old Hanks to yours because yuuis issuli
ject to the storms nnd whirlwinds of party.
This may necounl fur the return of some uf
your ciroulation; nml if my proposition be
true, thnt no circulation can be regular or
profitable unless il is issued in strict conform
ity to the demands uf trade, alike regarding
the production and consumption of the conn
try; your circulation has returned lo you in
equally strict coiitoiini'y to these Isws, and
you should be ready to send il forth sgain us
soon ss the productions of the country cnn
be sent lo market. You regard Ihe "compe
tition in business" of the three old Hanks n
producing "wunl of uniformity and regulni-i
ity" in the Slate's paper oiretiletion. Von
could hardly have loads a greater error, as
'competition is tho lile of tiade. has passed
into an aitnge, ami wliere there is room lor
competition it must lend to the regulation of
prices in sny coiiinuiility. As lo the "evils
you deprecate, I have much to lesrn io po
liilcal economy if it be an evil that a paper
circulation should bo ket i ns near a specie
standard as it is possible to keep it, or if il
lie sn- evil that the State H;.nk should be
forced into a resumption when ths business
uf the country demands it, or if it be an evil
thnt the Hank's paper should occasionally
circulate into as well as from the Hunks. I
must, by your leave, be in favor of all audi
evils. A Hnsisicss Ms.

gales Ihe election if a Presidential candidate.
At present thrre is no doubt that the
choice of tho South would necessarily tall
upon Mr. Dougiasor Gov. Wise, and the for
mer seems to have tho preference, because
he is supposed to possess the greater share of
availability.
The contest fur the PresPdency does not
