Wo iuainuaitd the other day our intention to ro
pume our rematks upon the communication in the
AV tminrr signed "An Unpnjudiced Observer.” We
here insert another paragraph :
"Voltaire eahl that 'the history nf A'ngland thou’J hr

lla<l Voltaire read a rvlaiion ol the h.irrora note prrprtra
ted in India, we are pretty certain that he would have
bean u'tarly unahls to fi d iu like French voeabu'ary any
expression to characterize these atrocities. It uiav be
aaid that most of the cruellies wa hear of are committed
by the ualkvca ; but are these horrid droll anything but
a retaliation ot the aiiff.-iinfa ol the Indian! at the bands

Country.
\ oltuirc was, perhaps, the warmest admirer Eng
land ever had on the Continent. He praised her
constitution, applauded the fine spirit of her sons,
and rejoiced in her victories, even over his own
countrymen. The “three centuries” alluded to, sup
1 rosing them to have terminated a little more than a
century ago, included the Wars of the Roses when
the greater part of the ancient nobility perished in
the Held or on the scaffold—the reign of Henry VIII.
during which there wore said to have been 70,000
executions for political, religious and other offences,
Protestants and Catholics suffering in about equal
proportions—the persecution of Illoody Msry—the
reign of Elisabeth, during which many perished for
political otfences in liakington's conspiracy anil
others—tho Great Civil War—tho persecutions ol
Cuarles II and James fl—the invasion of I-eland
by William III—tho Rebellion of 1715 and that ol
1745. These were periods of great bloodshed, it ia
true. They constituted the fiery furnace through
which lh<anation was obliged to pass in pursuit ol
fffat freedom which Voltaire so much itimuut, --,i '
that Bhe did pass through theta In safety is tbw
highest praise which could povtibly be bestowed.
Had she succumbed to Stallurd, as France succumb
ed to Richelieu, she would have been in Voltaire’s
day what France was at the same time, and, like
France, she would have required another revolution
to set her right It is very certain that the language
in which 1 ollairc wrote does not contain terms sul
iiciently strong to denote the horrors of the late ma
Bscre in India. We rea I, the other day, in the Lon
don Timet, a list of the ladies murdered, at “one
fell swoop," hy Nona Sahib, and when we find a
man in this country expressing indignation at our
being called upon to express sympathy for these un
happy people, we conle.s it makes our blood run
cold. But we ought uolto sympathise with the suf
ferers. It is hardly jnst retaliation. Eighty years
ago, that is to say, tifly years befoie this Nena Sahib
was born, Warring II istings lent the English army
to a native Ptince, the ancestor or predecessor of
this very King of Oude, whose country has bct-n
lately annexed, to conquer the Robillas. The Eng
-w-^lish troops beat the Robillas in the field, and the
troops of the Indian Prince exercised upon the van
quished all the atrocities common to Indiau warfare.
The same Warren Hastings hung, rather irregular,
ly. eon less, a high Caste Hindoo, who was trying
to get tile better of him in the government Subse
quently, he plundered the Begums ol Oude. For
these, and other enormities, he was called home and
tried, and these were the excess.** of which Burke
drew such an eloquent picture, as alluded to hy the
writer. Tho speech itself in which this picture was
drawn was delivered in the Spring of 1787, just
seventy years ago last Skiing. How then stands

years ago, committed great excesses, with the assi*
unco of a British Governor-General. For this offence,
the Governor-General In quc-dion was impeached l.y
the K-iglish House of Commons at the time, and for
this otlcnce, the great grand children, not of the
murdered Rohillts, hut of the soldiers who murdered
them, arc justified now in murdering women, dash
ing infants against the wall and subjecting such men
as may not bo able to resist, to all the toiturcs which
savage cruelty can invent'
We nee I scarcely call attention to the impotent
raving with which this paragraph is loaded. We
will only suggest that the writer must have been
reading the conquest of Peru by Pixtrro, and the I
eon ( lust of Mexico hy Cortes, and that he inialook !
tho-e filibusters for Knglisbmen, when he gave the
reins to hia misled (ancy. Ii was Catholic Spain, not
Proteatant Kngland, that fol upon tho bones and
bh»*l of the miserable natives of these Unhappy
countries. It was she, not Kngland, who stretched
an unhappy native Prince upon a gridiron, and
roasted him by a slow tire, to make him reveal the
ep.t in which he had concealed his tieanurea It
M Cathode Spain, not Protestant Kngland, whom the
vengeance of G el has overtaken f*r her cruellies,
and who now holds but one of (he provinces acquired
by acts at which humanity shudders. Kngland, R
mwius has no sympathisers on the continent. Prus
sia, whom her money enabled, “with some assistance
from the frost and snow," to repel the invasion of
Napoleon, has forgotten the obligation. Portugal,
whom she rescued from the armies of the Great
C mqueror, after they had actually subdued her and
were taking their ease in her i apital, is not grateful
f.w the nervier. Kvan Spain, In whose defence she
fought nineteen pitched battles, and expanded untold
Million* of Iter money, Is totelly devoid of gratitude
" ® p«" believe all this. Tacitus, who was a at
verr, hut correct, judge o( human nature, tells us that
Ihr obligation conferred exceeds the rapacity „f re
|.ai ment, the recipient is apt to hale the benefactor
i i ad of being grateful for the favor (uH milium
XHtrrtuirt, frnfmli* rnMitur odium.) It is very
< ifain that Spain and Portugal will never he aids
b. repat Kngland for the services .he rendered them
in the P.iMsian war. Knglan I mil never be overrun
by an usurper, as Napoleon overran Spain and Por
logil. It stir ah mild rare lie *o unfortunate
moth r Spain nor Portugal has Midi a General as
Wellington, end soot, fi.rces as the British army, to
•end tidier assistance
Lit tM took a little b>hi dourly into matter?, tnd
see the assistance which England furnished the [
Kunpe n pomci* of the continent in money, to prc
tent them frcui utter subiugatton by Napoleon. She 1
furnished to Prussia £7,135,996, to Austria £1A,- l
S*7,473, to Portugal £il.‘.'do, OtM), to S|>ain £3,7*4,. n
mi', to Sweden,£3,546,601, to Sicily £3,316,666, to It
Kussia £9,308,7*1, to French emigrants and other tl
foreignirs £6,956.013, to the Minor Powers of Eu- t<
rope £10,000,000. Total, £57,001,340, or about a
|iHn,iKKt,tKW I All this was done in twenty one d
year.*! And for this assistance, to *ay nothing of b
her armies ami the debt eentractcd in lighting their it
battles i for theirs they were, not hers), amounting to tl
£330,000,000 sterling, these continental powers are h
not at all grateful. We did not expect they would i
I be. We should think, however, that the aabjectt of p
these powers should feel some sympathy with her,
for they always take rvfugc under her wing when- h
ever they And their own countries too hot to hold s
them. We remember, however, what had citizens }
“l ersecuted people" make here, and we are fully pre- l
pare*I to believe that they r> joice to hear of the mur- 1
ders in India. )
The writer in the Examiner seems to entertain t
a most cxtravagnnt admiration of Alexander the c
Gre»t, and contrasts his lenity with the cruelty of t
the British government in India. Certainly no two i
modes of government could be more unlike; and I
while every man has a right to his own opinion, we l
hope we shall he excused for not seeing in the con- i
ipieror, who perpetrated the inhuman massacre of i
lyre, and set tire to Babylon, “ the greatest city the t
sun ever shone upon," in a drunken fiolic, that per- <
fe:t model of a mlor which wo are bound to fall t
down and worship. In the meantime, it is not true, I
as this writer asserts, that the Brili*h government I
ever set up any pretension to make those whom they i
conquered •* worship their God, and worship Hun <
precisely as they do." If the English press has ,
uw.d any such expressions, it has wholly escaped i
our notice, and we suspect wo are in the habit ol
seeing fully as many English papers as iTic writer in 1
question. Some of them have complained that the
government has heretofore offered a premium to i
heathenism, by conferring offices, civil and miliurv, ;
to heathen nations, to the exclusion of nations pro- (
fu.*ing Christianity ; but does this indicate, on the ,
part of the government, anv disnosltion In fnre* it* *
religion on the Hindoos? Hut the other dav, an ]
American missionary. Rot. Mr. II iy, state J in I.»n- ,
don, that in the “government schools,” so far from ,
loicing the religion of Christ upon the pupils, the ,
Bitiie was not read at all. Nor is it true that “ al- j
most all ” of the private correspondence attributes (
tlie revolt “ to the persecutions ol the English mis- (
sionaries. Oo tlio contrary, all that we have seen ,
assigns a cause directly the reverse. The English ,
mis.binaries have no power to persecute anybody. ,
Ihe zeal of some of them may have been inteiupe- ,
rate—they may have spoken more freely than their |
situation warranted, bill of persecution there has
been none. They have forced nobody to listen to
them, because they could force none. Does the wri
ter mean to say, that it is prrteeulion for a man to
preach what he thinks the truth ? Would he justify
the Irish Catholics for murdering an American
preacher, because he preiched in Dublin to Catho
lics, and is the bare fact of such preaching persecu
tion ? We do not mean to say that the writer has
not seen tom* correspondence of the kind indicated.
But we deny that one dial I, or one-tenth—nay, that
one-hundrcdlh part of that which has been publish
ed in the English papers and cur own, iudicatc any
per treat inn on the part of the missionaries. They
could not persecute if they would. What they
would do if they could, wc are not prepared to say.
Forcing religion on heathen nations is an idea pureh '
Catholic. It is abhorrent to the very genius of Pro- '
testantism. When a man begins to pertecute, he
ceases to be a Protestant.
Tlie Mate Agricultural Fair. c
lo-day opens the great Stale Agricultural Fair, ,<
which promises to be attended by thousands of vi-i- (
l°rJ. Wc welcome the farmers of the Commonwealth ,
to their beautiful metropolis on an occasion so lilting f
and worthy. In the name of our enterprising and t
hospitable citizens, we bid them welcome, and wish ,
of touch instruction and uninterrupted t
feniBIMUeni.' ' * ‘
Our Agricultural Societies, State and county, the f
annual 1 airs held under their auspices, and the j
hundreds of scientific and popular publications edi- t
tel, contributed to, and wholly supported by, o
our farming population, are, doubtless, the chid v
source of the highly enlightened and prosperous con- g
dition to which our husbandry has of late years I
begun to attain. These, it must be admitted, are
direct and powerful agencies in diffusing a vigor
ous spirit of inquiry and improvement, and di-semi- J
nating information far and wide among that class to i
which they immediately relate. While Virginia is 1
entitled to the credit of haring done much, in a short
time, she has yet not equalled many of her sister n
commonwealths in the associative efforts and pro
vision* fitted to improve and to extend the culture *
of the soil. In New York, Maryland, Ohio, Ken- t
lucky, more attention, perhaps, has b.-en devoted fo "
the subject, and these states have exhibited con-pi- j
cious y, in the immense crops and fine Rtock tor
which they arc ct lebrated, the advantage of the sort «
of spirit and exertion of which we are speaking. *
Recently, however, we rejoice to say, a better and
earru-stei* feeling has been awakened among our tarm- c
ers respecting all such means and modes as may bo ^
made available in the advancement of their quiet
an ! noble vocation. Only a few year* sinee. a State b
Agricultural Society was organized in Virginia, and .
thus far it lias been attended with the most encour- r
aging and satisfactory results. And we trust the *'
Fair which commences to-day may afford ample and '
anil progress am ng our farmer* is still onward ami ll
upward, and that no obstacle, real or imaginary, ll
can hereafter interpose to arrest its proud and tri- !,'
umphant march. jj
Tho present occasion will no doubt he a most inter- 11
esting one in all its aspect*. The Fair itself wiil be ’
a curious and gratifying exposition of the agricul p
tural industry, skill, and enterprise of the .State.
We shall behold, spread out before us in uiinisture, ",
the agricultural character of the Commonwealth— i
we shall see it di played in the multiplied products *
of the del -I, the garden, the poultry yard, t!,« dairy, p
the stock stables, and household manufactures_we •
shall witness, moreover, specimens of (he sturdy 0
lords of the soil, congregated Irom all sections of the „
"Old Dominion;" and what will be more lovely and ?
animating than all else, our eyes will he gladdened r
with a sight ot the mothers, wives and daughters of ,
our bravo yeomanry of the plough, mingling joyous- c
oudy in the gay festival, bringing to it graceful sain- 1
plea of their own tasteful industry, heightnlng the ,
jocund spirit of the time with their bright smiles 1
and pleasant voices, and investing the whole acene
with a moral and social interest which only the J
presence of woman c an bestow. In short, the Fair will i
he eminently a domestic (estival, intimately annorj i
ted with our household wants, comforts, enjoyments, '
and affection*. N'o one ran stand amid a scene
where lowing cattle, utensils of husbandry, the 1
(mils of the taith, the produce of the dairy, and the \
ruddy-checked maidens and the sun browned sons t
of the soil, are gathered together in one hennonious '
company, without having impressed upon him a
wiiae of hoinrly atlection* and happiness. IIK ,
then hope, cs|>ccially, that tho mothers and daugh- '
tors, from the country and from the town, will flock
to the exhibition, and add that peculiar enchant- i
ment to the occa ion which their bright fare*, and a
gentle manners, and softening influence, ran l>c*t im- "
part.
The Fair will po scs*. too, a special atlraction for -
the ritix ns of Richmond. It #ill afford them a bet- ’
1 ter idea of thjagricultural resources and progress of
the State, a* well a* of the character of tho thrift- *
fill, energetic, an I intelligent population of tho in- *
tciior, than they can otherwise as easily and cheap- |
!y acquire. We trust, then, that all the community i
will visit tho Fair (irourwU, and that ther will go 1
with a disposition n it inert ly to gratify a lore of
sight-teeing, but to mingle social ly ami agreeably v
with their Mlow-eilixens from the rural sections of | r
th- Commonwealth Such association*, if rightly ,J
improved, may he ma le the mein* of a pleasant ac- ,
•I'laintanrc and more hearty sympathy between the
people ol the country and their brethren of the me- .
tropoli*.
Silent a* Prath. ,
Senator Hiintrr las a curious set of friend*. i
hough ntnrlantly pe« Wed at and assailed by tho
hymrrr and oilier Democratic papers, he ia per- I'
lilted to suffer and endure without a word or syl- |
ible in his defense. We hail certainly supposed
lat our neighbor ol the South would have rushed , 1
> the rescue after the appea-ance of the A’i<ymr*r'«
nicle on Saturday. But no* no. It is as silent as !
■■ath. Not a word did it utter on vosterday in re
ukc of the A'nynirer’a stem and severe attack on
a favorite. Does the South really mean to abandon
ic Senator to his fate? Does it intend to permit
is defeat for tho Senate without putting forth any
ilbrt to avert so melancholy a catastrophe? Does it
roposc to knock under to the A'n</>tirtr entirely?
If so, the Senator should understand that he will
ave to light, single-handed, his own battle, lie
liouhl therefoie promptly and gallantly meet the
,‘nyHirer on its own ground, and respond in another
•tter. This is no time for hitn to be thinking of
is dignity, and mincing matters. The crisis is upon
iin, and unless he grapples w ith it, he roust go by
lie board, and sink to rise no more. If he would
nly cast aside his absurd and impolitic reserve, and
nlir the lists with a courageous determination to
piloid his own cause and protect his own interests,
10 would soon Itnd many a stalwart ally lighting
ravely by his side. He should imitate the high
nd rhivalric example ol our interesting friend and
eighbor, who always places himself in front of the
«llle, animating his followers 1>y his deeds of heroic
aring, and imparting to all of them a portion ol his
wn fire and ol his own unconquerable spirit. Let
iunter thus exhibit himself Indore his friends and
nfore his enemies, and our word for it, though ho
nay nut win tho prixe, lie will show himself worthy
if it, xnd will attract to himself, fcs Wise has so
successfully done, the sympathy and admiration of
he public.
In a spirit of friendship, therefore, we admonish
lim to furor us with another letter. For, like the
i’nyHirer, we are willing to ground the arms of our
ibellion, and cheerfully aid in his rc election to the
•mate, provided he w ill come out satisfactorily on
11 the iinpoitant issues involved in the late contro
ersy between the South and A«yHirer. We have
ting cherished a sincere res tree t and admiration for
lilnlir and hi l.l....^lr ..
|iicstinns a'bided to to elicit our warm and active
upport. He would consequent’}" soon cease to be
nnoyed by even the shadow of opposition —for our
nfluencc with the Governor would soon induce him
0 suspend hostilities against the Senator We,
here fore, cnticit Hunter to lend a ready and willing
ar to our advice, and write a supplementary letter,
if a perfectly explicit, decided, and Satisfactory
haracter. 11c mar even again condescend to ad
Iress the disconsolate Leake. All we want is a
otter, and a letter we must have, or war to the
tnife.
In the uuanlitnc, we implore the South and other
Iunttr organs not to desert Hunter entirely, and
cave the Enquirer alone in its glory in its warfare
tpon him. It becomes the friends of the endanger
'd Senator to spread themselves in his behalf in this
crisis of his fate, or else they will ho vanquished and
ittdone forerer.
A Xew Xag in the Field.
The Washington correspondent of the New York
Uernld says that in the event of Hunter’s not sati.-fac
orily defining his position in regard to the Aduiinis*
ration, it is the purj o« of his opponents to present
•ov. Floyd as a candidate in opposition to him. We
mow not how this is; but we have our doubts as to
be accuracy of tbc report The contest is purely
me between Wise and Hunter—not only for the
icnatorship, but for the higher honor of the Presi
iential nomination in ISO1*. As fur ourselves, we
rill consent to no side arrangements. Wise is our
boice in preference to any man in the world. In
eed, he is the only man who comprehends, in his
wn person, all the elements of a complete and Iri
mphaut success. His admiiahle heroic qualities_
is personal popularity—his generalship—his pres
ge of invincibility—all, all point him out as the
cry man, who would be most likely to trample llun
nr in the dust find achieve a signal victory fur the
idniiiiistration^ We rAuld neverfli^ve half the
pirit to fight under any other person’s banner. He
t the idol of our heart—the rose-bud of our aficc
ons—the very pink of political perfection. He is
ur friend, our confidant, our daily companion, and
'ould it not be like driving a dagger to our soul to
ivc him up, and that, too, at a moment when the
’residency is almost hit?

EFFECT OF TIIE AMERICAS FINANCIAL
PRES-l KK.
From (Ar £»mt>; Timet, Oct. tf.
Tne Rank t>l England have advanced their rata ol dis
?ount to-day from pet cent, si which it had Mood
line* ths 16th of July, to 6 per cent. The suddenness of
ihe renewed .Ira n ot gold which has led to th s step has
taken the public by eurprt-.\ because they were not pie
pared lor Itieei'raurdinsiy news by ths two last A uteri
:sn mails. Allowing due weight to that iutelligcoce, there
is nothing in the movement to create alarm, although
Ihere I* a high probability it may soon have to be repeat,
rd The trade of this country w itb the United Slater rep
resents an annual total ol |i),tHH>,00ill, and it ir impoaai
ble lor any financial trouble to occur on one side without
its being deeply Irlt oo the other. During the last two
years we Itsve had many opportunities ol observing the
•en-iliveneee with which we respond to monetary perlur
baticn. In Fra' ce, but our relation, ol rotuiui rce and cap
ital with that country are altogether insignificant in cunt
patisoti. A panic in New Voik, therefore, which sends
the rate of discount to a point ranging between 20 and At*
per cent, and which is continue.) with intemdiy lor live
or six weeks, must necessarily subject u. to severe tem
po! sty pressure, and if the inconvenience should be limi
t'd bt a rise ol a ball or even one p.tr cent it: the value of
inoiiry we shall have reason to congratulate ourselves, and
to ace-pt the fact a. another proof ol the inherent aouiiUnem
of our genetal position. For more thin a mouth past not
imly has every payment due to ua from America bceu aa
lar is possible suap« tided, but special credit! have been
eagerly made use ot, calls on railway stocks largely held
here hsee been anuaanced (In one case sloue lor an
atntgmt approaching agdarur ul a million sterling ) and
draught* sulhotissd fast the ptttchase of securities by Eng
lish capitalists, tempted by t 1st! in prices, 'tom which
they conceive there cat not tail to be an early reaction.
It is scarcely ton much to assume that in this way a mil
lion or a million and i hall sterltug bos been already with
held, or absorbed Iront ua, that would otherwise bars been
in our possession at this moment, at.d the pro-pert is, that
the process will go on lor some time longer. It must al
so be considered that »t the sains period we hard been
dcrpatcliing the mist >«tly fleet ol transports ever em
ployed at one monte t with thirty or forty thousand
troop, to India, the outlay upon which in the shape ol
.tores, fu-l. A .cannot have (alien short ol halt a
lor which we will get nothing until the return ot the
tel* Irom Calcutta, a' 1'ie payments from the Indian lio
rmimei.l will not h<-made till a certain number of days
liter the arrival of the vessels at that poet. The India
house at I omc. Moreover, in order to lighten as lar
M poMihle the liabilmee of tho Urritoiiil Government, are
ibstaining bom drawing ibe usual amount ol revenue re
quired from that side lor the payment ol dividemla in.I
other purposes, and have thus louud it necea«ary to bir
row a million Irom the Bank. Upon the whole, therefore,
it is possible that the combined operation of the Anirri
ran panic and the Indian insurrection msy for the time
have affcCtid our r.-iurccs to the extent of two or three
millions. A decline of about s million in the bullion of
the Uink i« usually followed by an advance ol a half per
cent, in the rale ot discount. It woulj consequently
seem that the-e adverse influences, as they have borne
upon us to three times that amount, might hare caused a
rise ol one aud-a-hsll per cent., and ibat it is only through
some favourable ro'i iteracting circum-tances that that re
sult has been delayed or prevented. These ate to be found
in the abundant harreat and the change in the silk mtr
ket, as well aa in the -upplies of Indian produce, which
has in some degree diminished tho specie shipments by
tho la-t and the preceding Orerland mail. IUd the re
bel thus afforded happened in orJinary coarse, we should
now, probably, lure seen the rate of discount at t
per cent. A a it is, it has simply enabled us to lim
it the rise lor lie present, at all events, to fi, in
sicxd of carrying i; to 7 per cent. Under these circum
stances, this is no small satisfaction; but there is reason to
believe that, even i bother stringency should be experi
enced, we are no'in any danger of seeing the approiching
wiuter ushered in by a vary extensive series ol cummer
cixl disasters. Ot course, the American failure* must
hare told heavily on individual house* on this side, and
there are al-o several branches of costly produce which
hive experienced wido fluctuations that may disturb the
casual fortune* of speculators. There are likewise at all
l mes a number ol infirm establishment* carrying on their
business from baud to inoulli, to whom a rise of a half per
cent in the rate ol disrouut after any long period of pres
sure is an inevitable sentence of destruction, and it is usu
ally at tho end o! the year that such cases arc developed.
But as regard* the hrotd trade ol the empire, it ia iuipoa
aibls to discern a cause of fear. Month by month our
commercial payment* increase in magnitude, and vet are
met with a punctuality never surpassed, and all the lead
ing hankers w ill testifv that, thus far, there is an absence
even of tho-o premonitory symptoms which invariablv
warn them of the possibility of a coming struggle long Ini
lure the community at Urge have become awasened to it.
Hones the ti.li f may ba confidently Indulged ibat, *1
thoogln with our iiuiveisally diffused transaction-, we
■u-liwiw^iU-^Mcipat,. iu evc,y ibnckthat occurs
elsewhere—an- o never <a* a time wRPn prudence
waa more es-cotnl—our commercial prosperity, notwith
lunding the Sepoy mutiny, ia destined anil to continue s
marvel to the world.
The funds opened this morning at the closing quotations
it Tuesday, but subsequently experienced a la.l of nearly
three-eights p-.r cut. The first transaction in Consols
lor motley were at 89 7-S to 90, fiom which on the an
rioui c ment ot the alteration in the.Bank rate ot discount,
they declined to 9>J to 7-8. At this they remaiurd lil'l
sear the termination of business, when the market showed
increased weakne**, the final prices, baing b'J 5 8 for
on.ni-y and 90 to 1-8 for tho new account on the loth ol
November The gloom at the end *4 tho day was prin
npally owing to a report that the features of tlic Bilik re
turn to he published to-morrow evening will be much
worse thau ha* been anticipated, and but for the an
ounccmeiil of the arrival a: Southampton ol the expected
IS.t.OOirf., brought by the Isst Australian mail.-till great
■' deprendon would have been experienced. India Stock
eft off at 207 to 210 ; India B inds, 23* to 17s, discount ;
uid Exchequer bill*, 8* to 4s, di-count.
The discount establishment* have increased their rate
if allowance to per cent lor money at call, and to 5|
i-r cent, lor deposit* with short notice.being an advance
>! s half p.-r cent. The rat-i ol the j lint-stock banks lor
ieposit* will be 5 per cent.
The applications st the Bank to-day were numerous
loth before and alter the aiterution. In the diaeount
"larket seme < xeepnonal transactions have been negotia
led at fl|, but tbu cu rent rale for the choicest paper
leems to be only an eighth below the Bank minimum.

RICHMOND MARKKTB, Orl.Mth.143T.
Oonaa.i. Raut.ai—The mercantile community till! labor under
the general dtprutom, Inaugurated by the Bound.I e.clt'in.nt,ba
ll leobelna. Ihnl qol.ao.nc. ha. now rupere.ned, on,I, that a. th*

evidence* of t! e' panic will nav* cvastdto exist, and. With the
great body of th> public. It# occurrence will alivoat pe«s from rewol
lee Una. Th * only real obstacle* to commercial transactions, just
now,are lb* scarcity of small changs, and hgh rates of cichang*—
generally co existent. It Is our decided opinion that tie Banks o'
Uilscity, from tha ntarwoven relations which exist between them
• elves and the public, should mak* «xtraord.uary sxert on* to af
ford relief at this juncture. It appears Impracticable for them to
expand the'r dlsoeunts, since It Is tbvlr Intention to kr#.i as near as
possible to tha rendition which w!ll enable them to resume the pav
meat of spcele from their counters, but. It '.a not Impossible for
them, with the factMttce. credit an I Irfl ience tli*y possess, to aile
vlata the Inconvenience of the people, by it*ing eom*fW»g to les
sen the rate* of Northern txrhange, and Incrcas'of tbe c rco’atlon
of small change. They can do somcthlog. If they wUI alno« rely and
earnaat'y address ’hemselves to the sghjrct. The 'balance of trade'
ought unquestionably to be In oar favor—we sell more than w« pur
