Why Should hay Whig Vote for James Buchanan t
We put the question in all sincority anti frank
Otw—why should any Whig vote for Janies Bucha
nan ? We narrow it a little and state it thus—why
should any Virginia Whig vote for James Bucha
nan?
We confess that the idea of any Whig, in any
State ot this Republic, supporting Buchanan for the
Presidency, overwhelms us with astonishment. He
is assuredly the last man in the land who deserves
Whig sympathy and Whig aid. A life-long opposer
of their principles and their measures, and the ca
lumniator of the noble and eloquent founder and lea
der of the Whig party, what right has he to expect
the con 11 ilence and suppoit of the patriotic Whigs
of the Union ? And how, in the name of Heaven,
can any Whig, with the instincts and the manliness
of a Whig, with the self-respect and the honor of a
man, consent to cast his vote for a gentleman through
whose personal instrumentality Henry Clay was
hunted down and slandered and persecuted even to
the portals of the grave—through whose agency the
noble and just ambition of that great man was nip
pe 1 in the bud, and hia hopes of the Presidency in
1844 blasted forever? How, we ask, can any Hen
ry Clay Whig anywhere within the broad liinita of
this nation thua stoop to confer honor and place up
on a roan, who did so much to overthrow and to in
jure the idol of the Whig heart of the United States ?
We are utterly at a loss to comprehend that species
of infatuation which could prompt any human lur
ing, professing admiration of the immortal Clay and
reverence for liis memory, to elevate and reward by
his vote the acknowledged villifler and slanderer ol
11>„ Anri.uu Whie rutri vt and statesman, who now
sleep.' Ins last sleep beneath the shades ot Ashland
Could Henry Clay rise from his tomb and stand once
more erect in the pride of his glory, with what in
effable scorn and contempt would be turn his back
U|s»n the pitiful things who now, under the shadow
of hi? great name, are giving aid and coiulort to his
greatest enemy, and trying to exalt him to a posi
tio i iro n which Buchanan himself kept Ann away
by hi- slanders and his calumnies! How one single
gisi.- c from tnai bery «ye of his would strike these
creatures blind and silent, and make them feel, if
anr x sibdily still remains to them, as :f it were
better, than to stand in hit indignant presence a mo
ment, tor the mountains to tall upon them and to
hide (hem from mortal sight forever! How, with
downcast eye and trembling limbs, would they sneak
away from his side, daring to approach him never
more! Oh, no; not one of the Jones*, the Pearces,
or the Pratts or any of their renegade followers,
would Iks caught in a thousand miles of Henry Clay,
it he were still living, after the avowal of their de
termination to vote for James Buchanan. Not one
ot them. And yet tliex men, though supporting
Buchanan, still presume to call themselves Whig*,
and insult the memory ol their great chiellain by
atill proclaiming themselves his admirers and his
friends! What hypocrisy! What falsehood ! What
an illus’ration of human selfishness and meanness!
But we pass by tb»x Whig politicians whose mo
tives, in aiding in the election of Buchanan, are ob
vious to all, and as black as Krebus. Self lie.' at
the bottom of their course—patrioti'iu lias hail no
part in determining iL It was simply a matter ol
calculation with them—a matter of dollars and cent*
in tin: shape of anticipated otHcc. That is the full
extent of its honesty and its dignity. We therefor,
let them go, with no tears to shed and no regrets to
express over their departure —they hare lejt their
party for their party'* good. Few or none, we a>e
aware, will follow them. Few or none, who still
cherish Whig principles, or feel a pride in the nunte
ot Whig, can ever become hewers of wooiland draw
ol water to their life-long and unrelenting cueiuy -
the tyrannical, corrupt, and spoils revering Democ
racy. Few or none, we have all coniidence, win
ever fell pride and joy in following the white pi unit
of “Harry of the West" through many a gallant am
hard-fought conflict, will ever consent to abandon a
party touu led and illustrated by the wisdom *nd pa
triotism of their great leader, and meanly bet-iki
themselves to the embraces of his and their most vi
oleul and despotic toe. We marvel much that a so
litary one should be found so lost to the proud raool
lections of the past and to the promptings of grati
tude, sell-respect, and true independence. But thesi
lew, also, we let go, for they know not what thej
do, and upon that ground we part with them with
out a sigh.
One word to Virginia Whigs, and we conclude.—
Why, wo have asked, should any Virginia Whi|
vote for James Buchanan ? Why ? Have they no
been worse treated, more completely ostracizes! tlia
any class of people on the face of the earth, and bj
the very pirtv that is now appealing to them for thei
votes? What rbligalionsof any sort are Virginia Whig
under to the Democracy of the Slate? Have thei
not been utterly proscribed, and infamously gerry
mandered out of all their p litical rights? Wbsi
eliaoce stands any Whig of being elected to Congrea
from this State, owing to the unconstitutional, des
potic and riilanous gerrymander, of which we hav.
apoken, of a reckless and persecuting Locofoco Le
jgislature? Or of what office within the gift of tin
Slate government is he deemed worthy, by the vei i
men who now want his vote, of holding ? |a tber.
one? Look around you, and see the vile and pro
scriptive spirit which actuates the Democracy, am
tell us.
Besides suppose the contest was in fact betwrei
Buchanan arid Fremont, and that t was the duly u
all of us to do all in our power to try to defeat tli
latter, what earthly necessity would there still he fo
any Whig voting for Buchanan? Is not the Slat
safe for Buchanan without Whig votes? In short
would the electoral vote of the State be a whit su
fer for him, though every man of every party n
Virginia should vote lor »|jm» Not at all—not a
all. And yet wc hear a few intelligent Whigsaay tlini
believing the contest to lie between Buchanan an
Fremont, they—living here in Virginia—must ml
for the former in order to help defeat the latter ' As ft
ourselves, when we hear of an intelligent Whig i
Ibis Sute resorting to such stuff as a pretext for hi
desertion, we at once pronounce him a knave. Kc
a man using such miserable chaff in the place of rei
•on and argument, if not a pitiable Ibol, must nece>
aanly be a knave. That la a conclusion which m
body can possibly gat around.
All such men. uke it for granted, are looking 01
tar something from the dominant parly of the Stat
We care n-rt whether they be learned judges or r
leased penitentiary convicts, the fact atill exists.
We shall refer to this subject again. Meanwhile, *

Mr Fillmore and Ike Fugitla* Slate Law.
If our Southern read era could hare an opportunity of
glancing over lha abolition papers at tha North, and could
see, what we dally witness, how Millard Fillmore is de
nounced and abused lor hi* approval ol the fugitive slave
law, we arw sure that every man with a Southern heart in
hi* bosom would at once resolve, let others do as they
might, to sustain and hold up th* hand* ol the noble pa
triot and ststeaman who ia thus persecuted and hunted
down by lha abolition traitor* on account of hia firm dis
charge of hia duty to the Constitution and the South. —
You cau scarcely open a Fra as nil and Framont sheet that
ia not thundering Into th* ear* of the Northern people lha
necessity of putting down and chrushing out Millard Fill
more, because of Ills alleged sympathies with the South.
Not one. They are all pursuing him with th# vengeful
spirit of fiends, and if tba South rushes not in to defend
and sustain him, the enemies of the South will triumph
over him; and how, in that event, can w« ever ash or ex
pect a Northern uian to do hi* duty laithfully by ua ? ll
he ia to be proscribed and outlawed both by the North and
the South for simply doing hia duty, what iuducaiuent,
what courage will any Northern man ever again have to
risk himself and hia all for us and lor the Constitution and
Union of the country f We appeal to Southern man of
all parties to bo just. If not generous, and determine to
support F'illmorv, and thus discharge the debt of gratitude
they owe him—and what ia more, by supporting him, to
administer a rebuke to abolitionism, and encourage tba
fiiends of the South at the North, and thus, by building
up and upholding the national and conservative men at
the North, to pul down fanaticism, secure the rights of the
South, cement the bund* ol th* Umou, and restore once
more the blessing ol peace to our distracted and convulsed
Republic,
Without comment, and only to show the spirit of tho
Abolition press against Mr. Filliuora, we subjoin the fol
lowing article from the Albany Journal, (Wesrl i paper,)
which republishes the fugitive slave law, and accompanies
thst republicstiorr with tills savage and merciless assault
upon Millard Fillmore. Let Southern men read and ra

and persecuted by tba Abolitionists for our sxkcs
“That b\an\aoL's Law.—The Representatives of the
United Stales ol America in Congress assembled, on the
Stir of July 1776, declared the great truth that “all men

“l'he preamble to tha Federal Constitution recite* that
that Instrument was maJc “to establish justice, inaur* do

mote the general welfare, and seclee the blessings or

“Millard Fillmore denied the faith as wntten by our F'ath
en in these two great Chartera. He effected the passage
tn-uugh the Congress ol the people assembled in Septem
ber, ls5‘\ ol an act known with sorrow among all civilix
ed men as the American Fugitive Law. It is in the Ml

Mr Woottou’s Letter.

Like many others immediately after the Cincinnati uomi
ii it ion, Mr. Wootlon ttioug.it Mr. Fillmore’s prospect
doubtful and gloomy , and that Buchanan would be able L
carry a good many Northern Stales, and that, consequently
,t might become the duty of Southern men ot all parlies tc
unite upon Buchanan, provided he could obtain a liber*
aud efficient support at the North. But these impression
have all lieen dissipated by subsequent events. Rccei.
developmsuls and circuiusLiiices daily transpiring in al
portions ol the country have satisfi-d Mr. W. as they har<

we are rejoiced to know that the Aayairvr ia playing late

contrary effect. Democracy il is that has received th<
blow aimed by the Aayuirrrallhr supporters of Fillmore
It is right that it should bo so. Ws hsva heard ol a good I t
number of Democratic merchants both in this city and it
Baltimore declaring that il il is the object of the A'wyuirw

interests ol these places, they are done with the vicious
and destructive thing called Democracy, now and forever
And so they ought to bo. For II the Democratic partr, si

Uk.sbt Oocit Hocsk, Sept. 2-tth, 18*6.
To the Editors of ths Whig :—
GusTtmEM—I have occasionally beard for a month or
■ wo pa-t that it has been rumored in some ol the adjoin
ing counties of this State and North Carolina, that it was
toy purpose, in the approaching Presidential election,
to rote lor Mr. Buchanan; and, on this evening. I
received a letter from a personal and political friend,
enquiring of me whether this rumor ia Welt or ili
'ou tided. Not having taken any active part in politics
for tome time past, and not regarding my position and in
doeticc in any party as a matter ol public interest and
concern, I have been contented, so far, to deny the cor
rectness ol the repoit when and where I have heard it.—
Hut il has been suggested to me that it is perhaps due.
noth to luyseil and the candidate of the Whig and Ameri
can parties, lor whom I intend to vole, thus publiclv to
-vow my preference. It is true that Upon my return lioiu
Washington in June last, aud before the return of Mr.
IFiliuiorv lioiu Europe to the I'uited State*, I entertained
’tut little hope ol his election, and, on some occasions.
iranuiy expresseu, as i ueiicvc i .no 10 you, ruy apprenen
-ioos upon the subject; ami 1 may—I think .ini—eipre-s
the determination that, in the event of a contest merely .,a
lH-iween Mi Bueh-uian ami Col. Fremont, to vote lor the
former. But niv apprehensions have uol been realised—
■ lie scene upon the political aivna ha* been changed, ami
die lievelopincnta since June last have shown that this is
no mere contest *« between Mr Buchanan and Col. Fre
nont. It now appear* that the political managers at CSn
innati have overreached themselves, and, in their elf >rt*
0 unite the Iree-aoilvrs of the Ninth ami the Arw-extcr* ol
Mr South iu the support of their nominee, that Mr. Bu
chanan is to Jay almost as poaerlcsa m the North a* I' d
Fremont is in the South. They are, it would aeeiu, alike
die representatives ot antagonistic sections ol the Union
iVhile the contest in the South is almost exclusively be
tween Mr. Fillmore and Buchanan, it is but little else in
the North than a contest between Fillmore and Fremont.
And why, let me enquire, ia this * Is Mr Buchanan being
- ■stained in the South because ot his unquestioned fidelity
to Southern interest* T because he ia in fact a Northern
nan with Southern aentim-'uls and leeling* * Undoubted!*
not. lie i« being sustained in the No.-th by umneiou* free
- oilers, headed by the Van Huren*, with as much teal as
sin fiic-eater has eviuced in hia -uppnrt in the 3 >uth On
the other hand, is lie r.-pudial<-d iu the North because ol
bis Southern procii vitit-s * liecause he refuses to recognize
he doctrine of Squatter Sovereignty and desire* the ex
tension of slavery ? The Cincinnati platform—which he
•*—and hi* free-«oil adherents anawer thi* question in (lie
negative The election ol Mr. Buchanan is advocated in
both (he North and the South, but lor very different re*
-On*—not because lie is national and conservative in his
iewa—but because be is supposed, iu the Soulh, to he
1 i lavor of Southern interest, and ia supposed, in the
North to be in fsvor of Northern interest. This is the
game which the managers at Cincinnati designed should
he played before the peoph; and it would doubtless have
succeeded, as similar tactics have succeeded heretofore, bol
tor the po-ition of a third candidate, brought out and sus
aim-d in the larger section of the Union upon purely aec
oonsl ground*. And it is nut true, iu luy judgment, that
the North generally are withholding their support of Mr
IliK-liamm becauaethey doubt his opposition to the extern
-ion ol slavery; but because Fremont, a purely sectional can ■
lijsle, lias taken higher and More ultra ground than w><
.Miiaistent with Ihe position ol one who. In order to secure
'.is election, deemed it expedient to wear two faces—one
lor the North and the other tor the ,South. And though
he may get more votes—as States he certainly will—in the
South than any candid man claims for him in the North,
it is not, I apprehend, because the North lores Our—
Buchanan—less, but Fremont more Aa soon a* 1 had
-arefiilly read the Cincinnati pisiform, I suspected that a
iraud upon troth sections of Ihe Union was intended ; and
it is not now to Ire denied that, in its practical operation,
it lias woiked a fraud , and as soon as I Mgr the )rt>er ol
, acceptance oi Mr. Buchanan, in which he lakes the plat
fotiu better for worse, and so tar stultifies himself and in
•ults the understanding of the country as to declare that
1 no, “aa tiie candidate ol the Ueinooratio party, haa no
I right, by answering interrogatories, to present new ami
lifferent issues Ire fore the people," my first impression.
I that a Iraud was designed were lolly confirmed And
from that time, so far Ironi believing that the election ol
1 Mr. Buchanan would have the effect, in hisowu Isnguige
“In allay domestic strife and promote Ihe best interests O
L ilie Republic," I have been fully pcr*uadcd> that bis elec
t lion inu«t result almost inevitably in tbe continuation <>
that “domestic strife," for which those who have errctei
the platform of principle* un which he stands, are justly
chargeable, and which is daily threatening not to 'pro
mote,' but to destroy “the best interests ol the Rcp;;> 'in '
Standing upon a platform ingeniou-iy ooiifttructn) u> suii
tho taate of all partir* and all sections without regard tc
birth or color—himsell the candidate of the extremes nl
F both sections ol the Lnjon—who csn .|pubt, if Mr. Much
in«n is elected President, llist these discordant element
. then, as now, will rule, hr turns, the administration 0
public atfsirs, and must aggravate instead of allaying th«
1 domestic strife which the same spirit and policy have en
s gendered during the lost few years,
i But I humbly conceive that Mr. Buchanan is not th<
man for ths stirring tnd eventful times in which we live
II right in sentiment and unobjectionable upon the scori
* of experience, it mnat be owned that hia de ficiency, no
i to say otter destitution, in what treneial Jackson rslier
moral entrap*, is a disqualification in himself or any mar
, lor the Presidency. And if Oen. Jackson, who kn-w hiu
well Slot had seen him tried, were not good authority, n<
• one, it is presumed, who reads his letter ol acceptance
» just referred lo, can any longer doubt it. A candidate lo
the suffrage* of all sections ol the country lor ths uhie
magistracy of the Union, tnd not possessing moral firm
ness enough to declare his opinions unreservedly—in re
lation, it may lie, to matters of the highest public con
F eern—in one section, for tear he may diminish his chance
, of election in another ; amj to resort, for his justification
, to the unmanly subterfuge that, afisi whet was said am
lone at Cincinnati, he has “so right to present new am
' different issues before (he people,” esemplifies either
F destitution of moral rourogt or moral irntimeut—I can
I not which—that ought to disqualify him for the high am
responsible position to which be aspires. Ho far, then
from intending to vote for Mr. Hnrhanen as against Mr
’ Fillmore, I anouid vote for him with reluctance as agsins
Fremont. The election of either of them would he, ii
! my humble opinion, hut the lieginning and not the eiullni
of sectional strife end the shedding of fraternal blood.
But far, very far different muvt he the confidence of th
• whole country In the national sentiments, the msnl

THK RICHMOND KNgUIKKK's ATTACK ON THR
COMMERCIAL INTERESTS OF BALTIMORE.
The Richmond Enquirer, ill a labored effort to change
the antic* paled result ol the Mayor’s election, as-Miacee
Baltimore with oonimerrial destruction if ll dares aur low
gee lo per let la waging sueuaaalul war upon the L>s(no
mocracy. The article thus written has not only horn aaia
ed upon and reproduced lu certain Democratic journala of
thU State, but la regarded of auch tranacani'ent power,
1 that the friend* oi Mr. Buchanan have thought it worthy
of a more etiensiee uirculation, a* a paid advertisement,
in tha column* of a con temporary. Aa they evidently
imagine, in their delusion, that ita notoriety will profit
them, we have uo hesitation whatever io aiding our eiti
acn*, to understand the charge* which are brought agsinat
them, and the infamous system of espial to which the En
quirer request* its friend* tu Baltimore to auhjwct them.
For the grievous fault ol sincere!* believing that tha true
1 object# of oar nationality can only be secured bv recogni
sing no geographical distinction* between the Stales, aa
co eqaal* in Hie confederacy, we are stigmatised, in tho
"lady language" of the Knquirer. aa tofectad with "IVino
nistn,’* and with being aa deeply dyed in frae-aoiliam, and
aa destitute of aympalhy, with the South, aa Philadelphia
I or New Yttdt. If “Demoniam consist* in tha desire lo
rescue our tieloved country from the dangers and corrup
tiona of an administration whose executive has been con
temptuously repudiated bv the very party to which the
Richmond Enquirer belong*—repudiated moreover for
corforming strictly to the line of |ioiicy advocated and
supported by his Democratic advisers, and applauded to
the echo by the E iquirer itself—then we of Baltimore
plead guilty to the charge.
II "Denioniam" oo-iasaxa, furthermore, in a sentiment
of profound loyalty to tha Union, irrespective of geograph
ical line*, w* ara indubitably guilty not only of entertain
ing Una reverent feeling, hut of atririug to promote the
peace, and happinm* and prosperity of our common coun
try, by oppuaing tha growth ol sectional parties whether
they originate at tha North or at the South. If to stand
upon the platform of tha Constitution, and to belleva that
its provisions in connection with the compromises ol 1880
guarantee to the Southern State* the perfect security of
their peculiar institutions, and, aa far aa human law* cau
■•ffcct it, the amplest moans nt recovering fugutives from
Isbor—if tin* be free-soiliam. then most aaauivdlv a large
majority of the people of Baltimore are free-aoiler*.
If to coutend that the abrogation of the Missouri Com
promise wa* rath, inaxpwdirnt, uncalled for, wa* a gross
violation of a solemn compact, and is the sole cause ol all
those evil* we so btlerlv deplore ; and if to seek, by au
amicable restoration of this quasi-constitutional agreement,
to restore that harmony between widely separated section*
of the Republic, which is now so rudely disturbed ; if such ]
sentiments, and such efforts, arc indicative of free-aoil pro- !
ciivities, we conic**, in ail humility, that we are truly guil- I
ly of thinking and doing that which. In the purer Java of
mir nation’s history, would have been dignified with the ,
ioftiei title of patriotism
"The real issue," exclaims tli* Richmond Enquirer, ‘is
Af ican slavery, or tu abolition !" It is "uselesa lo pre
tend that Maryland prrfcia Fillmore—that Baltimore goes
for " Amcncane ruling America.'' That humbug ia expo
sed." Will our fiery contemporary pardon u* if we venture
to suggest titsl whatever may b* the real issue, the people
ol Ualtiniore will be prepared so meet it, not aa drunken
melt ptofea* to relieve the vffocti of debauch, by taking
additional stimulant-; hut by the adinini-lration of reme
dial agents fat more appropriate—medicament- that will
restore tone to the system, and temper the hot blood,
which now course* through the vein* and arteries of the
body politic, to a healthy warmth and equable puiaa
tinns.
To accomplish ao beneficial a rciult, it is absolutely nec
rw-arv that the service* ol a skillful physician -tumid he
called into effective use, and however "uselees" it may be
"topretend that Msryltnd prefers Millard Fillmore," and
confide* in his ability lo manage successful! v tills national
the xqurl will prove, that her "pretensions" are foun
ded upon a basis loo solid to be shaken by a paiagraph
from (he Richmond Enquirer.
It ialikewise a melancholy truth—if the Enquirsr will
have it so—that Baltimore goes for "Americans ruling
Ainericu" just as stoully as O'Connell went for the right
of "Irishmen ruling Inland." 1* It possible that oui
cmitcmpnniaf goes for “Foreigners luting America?"
VVu rather incline to believe that therein lies the “hum
bug" nt which he speaks so dipp.nnilf.
For the<e good things and many more, our citizen* are
Jeuoonced and vilified, and our merchants threatened
with the loss of the Southern trade. The "Vermillion’'
edict of the Richmond Enquirer has been levelled again,i
all who do not conform to its “Celestiil" requirements,
and yet, strange tossy we continue wilfully bent upon
supporting the Union nt the Stales so long ss their re- .
served lights are properly respected, and the Federal Con
stitution contain* sufficient of vital force to adequately
punish aggressors.
But when the Enquirer presumes to dictate to ua what i
we shall do, and what we shall not do, it overleapa the
itouud* of courtesy and provoke* a corresponding reply. J
II we thought for one moment that the people of Virginia
were jointed toys, and danced and capered at the will ol
the Enquirer, all our revurence for tile gallant sou* ol the
Old Dominion would be gone forever, but knowing aa we
do that they piu their political laith to no one man's apron
strum; that they exercise freedom of thought and freedom
of motion; that they reverence truth unostentatiously spok
en, and hold flatterer* in sovereign contempt ; that they
themselves ate separated aa widely in political sentiuieut
and ill regard to the best means of restoring fraternal con- |
cord mid unity ol action between the States at Issue with !
each other, aa are the Richmond Enquirer and the Haiti
more Patriot, we leave them to decide whether the citi- |
zen* of Baltimore are justly .lealt with according to the
rules which should govern honorable men, when such in
structions aa these, embracing a system of espionage id
the basest and most disreputable kind, emanate from the
organ nt the V irginia Democracy.
1st. We beg our friends in Baltimore topnolish from |
time to time the names of those merchants, traders and |
business men of all vocations who are pr,slavery.
2d. We ask our Southern dealer* of all classes to note I
who are friends and who are foe* in Baltimore as well as
In other cities; and not to spend a dollar of thair patron
age upon those who are not known to be for ua.
3d. We ask nor towns, villages and country places in ^
the South to organize meetings, publicly to pledge their '
patronage (o such only in all the cities, Baltimore inclu- j
(led, as are known triend* of constilulioual protection of j
property in slaves; of Slate equality In the Territories; of j
the Union ol the States, who aie not abolitionist* and .
Ireeaoil-r*.
till. We aak the whole Southern press, friendly to our
views, to call attention to this matter, and to rouse their
readers to the necessity of this course of sulfproteetioii.
3th. We ask our friends in Baltimore and all the North
ern cities to organize, and ptocure and publish udisble in
formation on which our traders and buyer* may act.
The South i* affiliating on thi* and other points of ac
tion, and it we have not a majority of blends in the Noith
the minority who are our friend* shall lie strengthened
by our patronage for the protection they are willing to
give to our rights of property and Pi our political equali
ty in the Union.
We bdl the Enquirer lhyr« doe* But live in all Balti
more p -;r. in reputable character—however decided
hi* political opinion* may he—who could l>e found willing
to debase himself so low •* to undertake a vocation sp
utterly mean and contemptible.

A* the practice of banking liecoinea more common the
disclosure* of the atiteni lit which bank* are conducted
are ererr day tending to tiring the practice Into discredit.
Better for the small tradesman to lie up Ilia earning* in a
stocking and hide it in hie l ed—better for the small lod
Ring housekeeper to consign hei gains to the broken tea- I
pot on the top shelf of her cupboard, which is the recep- i
lacle ol her hidden treasures, than for cither to become a
depositor in bank* conducted on such 1st principle*, on
such a in galiou of principle, as some that hare lately
tome under onr notice. The worat of it ia that the mia
[ management and failme of one bank throw* a suspicion up
on all. Some pew bank* hare lately been e-tablished,
and hare been doing business so successfully that lliey
t hare afford d a dividend to the shareholder* of from 10
to 20 per cent. We look at the name* nf the directors
and begin to take courage, when wi unfortunately re mem
ber that name* are, alter all, a fallacy—that a religious
| baronet may l>* a solemn humbug, and a mlllionarie Imrd
I of the Treasury a bankrupt victim ot suicide The bank
ruptcy of Strahan, Paul, and Bates was a fearful leaeou a*
well to depositor* as to bankers. To tbe latter it exposed
I the dangerous quicksand* which lurk beneath loo renturr
i some •peculation , to the former it exposed the fliiiiaineas
; of the trust to winch they deiirered their all in this world,
and probablr to many •uggested that a join-sloe |t bank
• might tie safer than a prlrate one. Bearedr had the pub
r lie recorered Irntn the astonishment created by the die
corery of -ogigantic a swindle, when there came another
thunderclap, John Sadler was found dead on Hampstead
I heath, and the Tipperary Bank—a joint-stock, not a pri
i rate company—was obliged to close its doors and confess
> to the robbery of iu custom era. And now, when we were
r Imping that by these ter-ihle examples commercial moral
. ity was abou> to be purified, and commercial prodenew
• about to Ire established, we discover the folly of expecting
. director* to be prudent where there I* a chance of great
- gain, or to be moral where there i* danger of immense
I failure.

sands at a single stroke. But lo these mind* there la
something sale Iu the retail merchant ; he la not a specu
lator, he ia an industrious, honest, jogtrot man, content
with ntoleral* profits and a ch-er conscience, In soil* of
hi* adult.-ration* A hank, Ihorefure, it Is concluded,
which aeek* It* customers among this claim must be a pe
culistly safe investment, ereu il the gains should be only
moderate ; and accordingly, we And among the list ol the
shareholders ol the Koyal British Hank juat that rises ol
persona who were likely lo be attracted by such a scheme.
Perhaps we are speaking in lamentable ignorance, and. If
ao, we ask to ba pardoned, but we And tto great commer
cial names among the shareholder*. Whether they be
there or not, however, we certainly And without number
Ihe names of spinsters, widows, clerks In Ute ('uau>m-houe«

mongers, and we know not whom else. The** were the
innocents who subscribed lo the concern; bat, lor all thetr
Innocence and all their caatiou, the customer*of tha bank
have bad no more security than II they had conAdwd in au
aristocratic mint or a speculating •inner. The Bank has
broken in the most disgraceful manner.
Whoever is to blame In tbe matter, and that ia not very
difficult to decide, it t* |>eriectly clear that this bank lias
given way Irom a combination ol the cause* which led to
the bankruptcy of Strehan and Paul, and lo the failure ot
the Tipperary Hank. The latter waa at the mercy ol cer
tain of the directors, who drew on it till the bubble buret
—drew on it without limit—drew on it as none but a pur
•on in the position ol a director could druw. We aru not
accurately inforoir l as to the credit whieh some of the
directors of the Koval British Bank obtained in Ihe book*
of the company oboes s If airs they controlled, and w* there
fore speak with all dua restraint. But it seam* to bw ad
mitted that in some instances this credit was more than
justifiable; mid w* only give the system by which a
director thru take* advantage of hia position its proper
name when we any that it amounts to euibeaxlemeot. A
director is appointed to his chair, just as a dork or any
other functionary is, lor his knowledge and habits ol busi
nee*, and il ia not less improper lot him to get and eacee
•ive advance ol money trout lha manager Ilian for two
°hirk* to conspire lo lead each other cash out of their re
spective depertmenta. And as hare we have au illustra
tion of that ruinous license which caused the downfall of
the Tipperary Bank, ao in the character ol other advance*
we have the counterpart ol the insanity in which Paul
and Sualian dashed their head* against the wall. They
lent utiMiey to impossible railway* iu the south of Europe
and lo unproductive coal mine* at home, and, in order to
rrrovrr the loan*, lent more and more. Instead of being
conteut with tbe first lose. We shall know more ol the
transaction* ol the Knyal British Bank licrealt.-r but the
same game seems to have been played in iu parlour also,
money sunk ill unprofitable speculation and sought to be
redeemed by sinking more, till at lent the butk wa* fairly
engiilh-d in the Mouth ol Despond. It was ungulled, and
the misery is great just in proportion to the modesty of
ll** K*"‘S m which the share holder* looked forward. If
capitalist* had been connected with it tbe ruin might not
be so fear I ul. Tbe depositors, it U not improbable, will
ultimately escape, but hideous ruin has fsllcn on lha
shareholders, roaurof whom bad intrusted all thair savings
the small pittance* ol old age, to this bank. Here ia vet
another warning that neithur high-sounding pretention*
on the one hand, not the moat humble scheme* on the
other, are a protection to the public; and that, be onr
confidence ever so great, our vigilance ought lo be still
greater.

A curte*j*indent at the N. Vurk Journal of i'oiutuetce,

" Tide part of Ihe World Is all excitement In real estate specula

mah-e of all the eetUrments along the Mls«isal| pi, particularly be

Iowa la eaten up by speculators, and aUng the whole hank of U*e
Missouri river, in that Stale, cities are laid out every few miles. The
arable land bas breu bought up every where by persons who do u«d
occupy It, but hold it to sell to emigrants. In some of the towns
budding lota bring tl«* same prices as In Ihe large Atlantic cities.—
Of course much of lids Is mere humbug, which cannot Iasi, and In
the bursting ol the bubble thousands mast be rained. Even In the
cities which are most likely to prosper every thing Is extravagauily
over valued.

A Urge buxine** waa transacted at the New York Coni
Exchange on Thursday, and prices of Flour and Wheat materially
advanced, Ihe former fifteen cent* per barrel, and the latter flvect*
per bushel. Shipper* bought largely of Wtiest, both on Utc spot
and to arrive Rumors were current that heavy order* had been re
ceived from the same parties In France who bought to eo large an
extent last year in all the principal grain market* of the United

A careful comparison of the circular* brought by the
Canada shows that there has been bat fid. decline In Flour eiuee the

fined to Ifi.txJti bsles, chiefly from llie United States.
The Cincinnati (i** •tie says that one hundred and sev
