the week part would hardly tho#ecran hoar
two months ago. Oat it is cheering to see people

dence, and the wheels oT commerce will begin to
move. In boelffCbß stagnation is virtual death. |
The West ought now to be making exchange tap ;
idly cu lie pork and provisions; but Instead d»
that, complete prostration reigns in ail deport*
menisof trade. We Mill believe that the neebssi*
ilea of the country will (dree a gradual Improve*
mem before a month shall pass. We arc now
within three weeks of the drat of January, when u
.large amount of State and railway, and other inter*
cat, will be paid. As far as now adVleed, State in
sc real that has heretofore been paid, will be paid
on the first of January, and wedo not bear that the
railways will let the Interest on their bonds go by.
The interest on city Indebtedness will also gener
ally be paid, and nnicse aomejtcrriblc political ca
lamity be Cal us, the facteabove alluded towill tend
very materially to restore confidence tothebnsi*

Tire Chicago Bakes to those or the Cock*
trv.—We published a circular & few days since
irom the Chicago Bankers, offering for ten days to
pay the country bankers five per cent, preminm.
for the exchange made on the bonds front retiring
ten per cent, of their circulation. One of them lo
cated In one of the central cities of the State has
»cntihe following reply
j. Y. Scaxxon, Esq., Prert, and others, Chicago:
Dear Sir; I have just received your Circular
letter of the Clh lust., and without, forthe present,
accepting or rejecting your proposition, desire to
cube some suggestion; foryour consideration and
TbadifficulUci,of which yoacoiDpUlD, originate. j
tou state, in an excess of circulation of Illinois I
Bonks, over the wants ofihe business community. I
Till* excess is, of course, created by th# issues of I
those Banks which fire, without dispute, gottenup |
for mere purposes of circulation and tbe profits d«- I
rived from the interest on securities deposited I
with the Auditor, and not by the Issues of such I
Banks as arc properly organized and managed I
with reference to the wants of the busluesaof the. I
tfLaic. uud have but a moderate amount of drcula- I
ting notes. The Banka in this place have bn] j
about fifty thousand dollars circulation each, and I
no one, 1 apprehend, will say that this amount J
is at all In excess of the wants of the bust- j
nes* of the place. Is itju/ftheu, that we, whose I
circulation is now but little. If any. in excess of I
live minimum capita! allowed by the General Bank- I
inglaw. should be called upon. In times like these. |
to ceilrc ten percent. ofthatmodemle circulation. I
which certainly is not now in excess of the want
•»frtie community? It strikes me, wry forcibly. I
i!u»t if the *• call* had been made on the Banks, to I
which I hare first referred, omitting entirely I
those of a circulation not exceeding, or hut little I
exceeding, the minimum capital allowed by law, it I
would have been more Just to all. andnone wonju j
have had jnet cause to complain, rae remedy
would then have been sought where the difficulty
originated, and those who arc innocent of wrong, j
vxwpt such wrong (1 f it bo wrong) as •• Poor
TrsVMva- guilty of—would notlw punlebed for
the wrong doings of others. . .
Again, supine wc yield to your demand, and
retire ten per cent, of o*ur circulation. In the man
ner you propose, what security have we that Un- '
calls upon us for coin at our counters, now almost
cifiJlv made by some of your brokers, will not sttll
cuaiinnc. until, Instead of ten per cent, wc span
have retired, perhaps, fifty jht cent ? bitnated a
wo arc here, at a very accessible point, inis, n
seems to me, will most likely be the result to us:
while the distant and Inaccessible Banto—those
which, confessedlv, have caused the difficulty of
which yon complain—will be actually called upon
to retire,'perhaps, not even the ten per cent, pro
posed by vou. Yours respectfully,
Wc leave the bankers to arrange this matter
among themselves as best they can.

Under the influence of the depredation reported
bytheLlverpoolitcamer yesterday evening, the
Wheat market opened dull and heavy; but rather
unexpectedly the New York dl«q>atche* showed a
visible improvement in breadstuff*, and the mar
ket here became buoyant, and prices advanced 3®

19c for No. 9 Spring—the market dosing firm.

Oats were quiet, with sales at JBJ,'c delivered. Bye

was sold at 45c in store. Barley was dull. High
wlnea dull at 15c.
The improvement which took place in New York
to day Is probably doe to the importation of gold
by the steamer telegraphed yesterday. During the
past two or three weeks, shippers at New York
have been unable to sell sterling exchange, and
breadstuff* have in consequence depredated. This
supply of gold, therefore, will probably bring some
shipper* into market.

Senate.—Mr. offered, oo am cement
to Mr. Morrill'* TitriffhHf. was referred
to the Comml»»Cw uu .Finance with the bill.
Hr. Hunter,from tbcCommlltec on Finance,
r ilrt)rtcd the bill authorizing Treasury notes,
amended by inserting SOO instead of SIOO, as
the minimum amount, and with an amend
ment that this proceeds of the sales of this pub
lic lands are U) be set Ujurt ns security for the
redemption of the notes. ,
Mr. Hunter said it was an object to give tbe
notes to the lowest bidder.
Mr Anthony said, let the notes be gold for
what they will bring. The Government
should deal with all creditors alike.
Un, Hunter—We hope the Government will
topay all Us debts. "We propose to
set aside the proceeds of the public domain so
as to encourage bidders to gel notes at par.
If ten millions were issued, will it not help the
notes, not only of this Government, but ofthe
Governments of all the Slates ?
Mr. Anthony called for the yeas and nays on
adopting Mr. Hunter’s amendment,
Mr. Hole said the Government was pledged
to redeem these notes. .
Mr. Cameron quoted a statement from the
New York Da'j &*>k. I would like to Eee
notes issued In sums not less than S*JO.
After debate, the Senate passed the House
Loan bill, previously reducing the amount
from ?10,(XW,000 to $3,000,000.
Mr Yulec gave notice for reconsideration
after the bill passed. The resolutions in refer
ence to secession were called up, Mr. Foot in
commenced speaking, when Mr.
Yulec interrupted him and asked leave to move
a re-consideration of the bill providing for the
Issue of Treasury notes.
Mr. VVIgfoU continued his remarks till 3:55
P. M.* wheßf on motion of Mr. Hunter, the
Senate proceeded to the consideration of Ex
ecutive business, after which the Senate ad
House.— The Speaker, pursuant to an order
of yesterday, called the various States tor pro
positions relating to the present condition of
the country. ,
Mr. Thayer submitted a series of resolutions
declaring among other things that the repre
sentatives of the people regard it astheirduty
to forget all parties and sections, and devote
themselves honestly and earnestly tothecausc
ofthe country, that any citizens of this
Jlepnblie willing to barter the public welfare
for their own advantage, thus creating am
mositv between the States, arc wholly unwor
thy of the confidence of the American people.
That the present unfriendly feeling has arisen
from the usurpations of Congress and the Ex
ecutive. That the rights of American citizens
arc above Congress and the President, and that
Territorial governments should not be com
pcllcd to derive their rowers from ‘Mr con
sent That there t*balf be no legislation what
