Saturday Morning, May 12, 1866.
Tho rooent explosion of the Nation?
al Bank of Washington has drawn
public attention to the manner in
which these institutions are organ?
ized. This bank, it appears, was a
a public depository, and by its failure
the Government has lost $400,000,
and other depositors- all the funds
) they had committed to the reckless
speculators who had the management
of the institution.
According to tho law creating na?
tional hardes, if they do not violate
their charter, there can bo no failure
among them. That law provides that
no bank shall be permitted to issue a
greater amount of circulation than
ninety per cent, of the par value of
the Government bonds deposited with
tho Comptroller of the Treasury, nor
issue a circulation to a greater amouut
than the capital actually paid in.
Moreover, each stockholder is indi?
vidually responsible for all contracts,
debts and engagements fr> the amount
of his stock. Tho law further pro?
vides that no loan to any individual,
firm or banking house shall exceed
one-tenth of the capital actually
paid in. And still further, an?
other stringent provision declares
thatif the directors shall violate, or
knowingly permit any of its officers
or agents to violate the Act referred
to, the charter shall be forfeited, and
every such director shall be held
liable in his personal and individual
capacity for all damages that may bo
sustained by any party in consequence
of such violation. The bill further
provides that at least tliree-fourths
of the stockholders shall have resided
in the State ono year next preceding
their election as directors, and be re?
sidents of the same during their con?
tinuance in office. The Washington
Chronicle, in commenting on this
failure, says: "Every director of a
national bank takes a solemn oath
.that he will, so far as the duty de?
volves on him, d?igently and honest?
ly administer the affairs of such asso?
ciation, and will not knowingly vio?
late, or willingly permit to be vio?
lated, any of the provisions of the
law. ' That there has been open aud
gross violation of law in this caso is
evident. Ii the directors were igno?
rant of, they were criminally negli?
gent of their sworn duty. If they
knew of it, and assented to it, they
are responsible to the extent of their
means for every dollar of loss sus?
tained by depositors, stockholders, or
other persons. It is difficult to frame
more stringer*, provisions for the safe"
ty of a bauk than are found in the
national currency Act. If a bank
fails in spite of all tho safeguards
. thrown around it by law, it can only
1 bo through the grossest misxnanage
tinent or by downright fraud."
' It is clear to us, therefore, after
reading these provisions -of the law,
that whatever depositors may suffer,
or whatever penalties directors and
stockholders may be hable to, the
note-holder is perfectly safe, and if he
holds a note of such a bank which
has failed, ho has only to present it
to the comptroller of tho currency
The system, however, is defective
iu some way, as this failure shows.
The capital of this bank was only
$200,000, yet it is reported that a,
party in Baltimore had borrowed
from it about $500,000. Therefore,
there, must be some side-door for
fraud, and a faithless board of direc
,. tors or officer eau swindle all the de?
positors in any bank, by lending their
money to stock-gamblers or others ou
whoso profits they most probably
depend. As wo have little or no
specie for a currency, and must
have some kind of paper money, let
ns have the regular greenbacks, for
the redemption of which tho faith,
honor and resources and credit of the
Government are pledged.
No national bank in the Southern
States has yet failed, and this, we pre?
sume, is owing to tlie high charactet
of the men selected for its manage?
ment, and to tho further fact that our
people are not much given to specu?
lation or stock-gambling.
PUESIDENT JOHNSON.-It is stated
that President Johnson has, within a
day or two, signified a purpose not to
leave Washington during tho summer
for watering places or elsewhere. His
daughters, Mrs. Stovor and Mrs. Pat?
terson, will probably *pcnd the slim?
mer in Tennessee.
" ' A Foreign Review. I
Dr. Charles Mackay, in a long and
interesting article written for thc
London Fortnightly Review, entitled
1 'President Johnson and the Recon?
struction of the Union," makes a
very fair and comprehensive review
of the ?political situation of tho*
United States since the war and the
accession of Andrew Johnson to the
Presidency. His views aro those of
an educated and well-informed Eng?
lishman, and will command attention
throughout tho British Kingdom.
He seems to understand thoroughly
the character, motives and policy of
President Johnson. Speaking of the
occasion of his accession, he says "the
people were in grim, it might bc said
in savage, earnest, and they gave Mr.
Johnston au earnestness of support
never before Riven, because never lie?
fere required, in the history of the
nation. Even Washington, nt thc
acme of his glory, never received
auch spontaneous, such unqualified
and such unanimous adhesion as was
accorded to this man, who gloried in
being a 'plebian,' in what seemed
the very darkest hour of the national
fortunes. And it was because of the
very darkness, that thc least departure
from law might have intensified, that
the people gathered around the light
of legality, and saw in Mr. Johnson's
rule the best and only chance of
guidance and deliverance."
He then traces the'policy of the
President step by step, fairly and
with an evident knowledge of its in?
terests and objects, and with a pretty
clear idea of thc purposes, the hopes
and the fears of the radical party.
On the latter point, Dr. Mackay
The party opposed to the Presi?
dent dread, and apparently iu good
faith, that tho reconstruction of the
Union, in the mode proposed by the
President, will leadlo three several,
and in their opinion, three enormous
evils; first, a victory for tho Demo?
cratic and State Rights party, and
the re-assumption of power by South?
ern statesmen, reinforced by the
Northern and Western Democrats;
second, the re-establishment of negro
slavery-if not in mime, in fact;
third, tho repudiation by the South,
aided by a large party in the North,
of the national debt. Rather than
one or all of these things should be,
the party that is only a majority by
the exclusion of the South, would
hold the cotton States for an indefi?
nite period as conquered dependen?
cies, and govern them by military
authority, at any cost to tho public
purse and the public liberty. Ad?
mitting to the fullest extent the ho?
nesty and sincerity of the Northern
politicians who continue to hold these
views, let us inquiro dispassionately
whether their fears have any founda?
tion in the facts or probabilities of
In the concluding paragraph, he
pays the following high compliment
to the President's patriotism and
statesmanship. Speaking of the pros?
pect of a rent union of these States,
he says that "if such a union is to
be the result; it will bs the imperish?
able glory of President Johnson, and
his undying claim to thc gratitude! of
his country, that lie was sagacious
enough to see the right course, and
bold enough to follow it. Among all
tilt? statesmen of his age he stands
pre-eminent. There is not a public
mau in Europe, unless it be tho Em?
peror Napoleon, win? does not appear
dwarfed when placed in comparison
with him. Greater is his task than
that of Washington: brighter will be
his place in history if he perform it."
