In common with hundred* of other citi zens who have business to look after and interests to protect, we were entirely wil ling that the attempt to sustain the cur rency of the Illinois banks duilng the con tinuance of the present rebellion, should be made. And when we yielded assent to the arrangement which was entered into between the business men and the bank ers of this city, we did so cheerfully and with the hope that the mutual stipulations would be carried out in good faith, and that we should have for home use a cur rency which, if not readily and cheaply convertible, would meet the pro-sing wants of the people until such time as a better could be obtained. Since the date of the arrangement to which we allude, impor tant events have happened, which render it certain that a considerable part of the circulating medium—all that based wholly •r mainly upon the bonds of the seceding States—must be discredited and thrown out. We referto the following; I. At the time of the arrangement, Ten nessee was still supposed to bo » member of the T so wedded to her pat lotie duties and material interests that she would not secede. Ihe anticipations •f her good conduct in this crisis have been disappointed. She has gone out; but not content with an act of seeession alone, she has joined her fortunes to the Confederate Btates, and thereby virtually dechued war upon the Federal Government, for which she has prepared by authorizing the arm ing and equipment of 5-5,000 men and Uio borrowing of $2,000,000 certainly, and ,000,000 contingently, for war purposes. Her bonds to the amount of near one mill ion seven hundred thousand dollars under lie the currency which is threatened; indeed they make up the bulk of the securities of the doubtful and soon' to be discredited notes. That, waging war upon the North in the way contemplated by the magnitude of her preparations, she will involve her self so ruinously and hopele sly in debt that her bonds will be almost, If not whol ly valueless, is as certain as that the levy ing of armies costs money. There remains the hope that the people will, in June next, disavow the treason of her legislators and compel her loyalty ; but that hope is so faint that it goes lor naught. Practically, then, Tennessee has seceded; and invaria bly secession is ruin and repudiation. IL Missouri has followed the bad example of Tennessee. Her Legislature did its ut most to force her out of the ■Union; but falling in that, succeeded by a series of acts cunningly devised, as if for that very purpose, in giving her credit a blow which even the vigorous proclama tions of Gen. Harney cannot ward off. She will pay no more interest. The fund pro vided for that purpose, and even the school fund, have been diverted to war prepara tions ; and her repudiation is just as cer tain as that the day of payment will come. Some few of our banks are bottomed in part upon her bonds. It Is needless to argue that these notes have but little in trinsic value; everybody knows that they are not convertible and that as the effect of the recent legislation becomes apparent, they will each succeeding day become mope and more worthless. Missouri credit, for years stale and doubtful, is now pros tra*£ Elsewhere in this paper, we print a list of the securities and the banks holding them, from winch a definite idea of values may be obtained. TIT. The bankers have not kept faith with the public. In their agreement they stipu lated to receive and pay out Illinois curren cy meaning aU Illinois currency then bankable. They have not done bo. They have received the good and the bad—that based on bonds of loyal and interest-pay ing Slates, as well as that bottomed on the credits of the disloyal and repudiating States—but they sorted their piles, stowed away all notes that approached par in val ue, sod paid to tldlb customers the worth less trash, and nothing else. The result has been that every day the currency has grown worse and worse; and exchange on Kew York has been ja=t as steadily appre ciating in price, until yesterday it rose to to the unprecedented figure of 85 per cent, premium! This bad faith is common to all of them; and in itself, affords complete and perfect justification for quashing the compact made with them by the business men. When the agree ment was signed, the bankers stipulated, that, they would sell exchange at 10 per cent., and that it should be further re duced as confidence was restored. We have not been able to learn that any con siderable number of hills have been nego tiated at the rate mentioned. On the con trary, the rates have, as the good currency •was sorted out of the poor, and the latter left in the channels of trade for the busi ness of the day, steadily advanced, and ths tendency is still upward. The banks at last have the money based on the tree Stales fi tocks and the people have the secession and until the latter is thrown out, we may not expect to see another dol lar that will buy a Mow York bill at any but a figure that is ruinous to all business. We have stated the reasons which justify a new deal, and a breaking up of the lato compact The banks have themselves to blame for the most potent of these. Had they treated the people with that fairness which has been extended to them, the crash might have been postponed. But wc sec no way now except to begin anew, and ge hack at once to a solid basis, making specie, not the measure of value; and from this day to receiva all bank notes—those of Illinois, Wisconsin and all other States— at their market value, and no more. That cours& —'he honest, direct and safe one—is the only way out of the difficulties in which the business of the city n involved. That that wm not be attended by serioosloes and great we do not pretend.— v all the evils, and as cash wsreeottmsndit. , . VOLUME XIV. "n n "r T ™ TKEM *«?"*■»■ LATER PROM CAIRO.

These troops are the Tammany Hull boys, and other hard-shell Democrats, of like antecedents, It is further elated that ifesers. Astor ami Draper exhorted the President and his Cabinet, in behalf of the capitalists, to prosecute the war with the utmost vigor, assuring them that the necessary funds would be advanced to the Government for that purpose. They were told that the GovernmcU''- intended to put forth its whole power to crush the secession hydra, and sate the Republic. lh« Carreucf SlMtias-Tli* Board of I'nde, A vsry full meeting of the Board of Trade, with a Urge number of eltlxena, was held at the Board of Trade Booms last evening, to adopt, if possible, seme uniform policy with regard to the emergency. A great number of propositions and short pithy speeches were made. The only conclusions reached were the passage of a resolution offered by his hencr Mayor Ramsey, to invite ten represen tatives to meet at the Board of Trade Rooms on Saturday evening from each of the follow ing interest*, vis: The eity banks, the country banks, the Beard of Trade, the Merchants* Association, the Railroads and the Lnmbcr Trade, to mature and recommend some uni form courts of action In regard to the curren cy.

The debate embraced a wide range, and the speakers were spirited, but it is impossible for us to make room for even a synopsis of the arguments. The feeling was very strong in f*vor of a coin bails.

Tribune: We have a good word from the Union men of Clark County, Mo.,whkh is across the river from here. Ten days ago the Secessionists s.cmedin many parts of the county to have the complete ascendency, and many Union men feared they would be compelled to leave. For their mutual protection, a few days ago the Unionists about St. Fraccisville determin ed to organize, but fearing that any pnblle demonstration in that direction would be put down by their enemies, they went to work forming secret Union clubs. In a few days the members of these clubs in the county amount ed to about 500, when, surprised at their own strength, they abandoned the secret organiza tions and boldly went to organizing military companies, with the open and avowed object of resisting any attempt to force than out of the Union. They have already two full com panics, and are forming a third. The effect of* this movement is very salutary—the Union men are now the loud talkers, and the Seces sionists are in most localities completely col lapsed. T. C. S. Letter From Camp Dement. Camp Dement, Dixon, May 16, 1861. Editor Chicago Tribune: This day has been one of as lively interest as we have had the pleasure of experiencing during our sojourn in Camp Dement, and city of Dixcn. A Convention of ths legal profess ion of the 2Cth Judicial District met at 2 o’clock p. 4L to-day, at the court house, and nominated Wm. W.

Cap* McNeil, of thoßoek Iziand company, is one cf the old settlers of western Illinois, and is closely related to Gen. John McNeil, who fought as CoL under Gen.

C±pt. Blanchard, cne ol tho oldest men in command of a company, is every way well salted to the position he holds, and manifests a good deni of tact and energy in drilling his company, which will without doubt render a good tccount of themselves if an opportuni ty shall offer. Capt.

Two hun dred Massachusetts troops then book posse* sloe of thrsfc»*od Meg* [Special Correspondence of the Tribune.] CAHF DeELANCTS, Oil 80, ) Wednesday, Hay 15ih. [ The sensation of today Is decidedly the vis it of a party of twenty-live gentlemen, all Un ion men, from Tennessee, who made an excur sion to this eity by the river, taking boat at dresden. They were headed by the gallant and loyal HonEtnerson Etheridge. Their pur pose is to see the camp here and test its feel ing, to carry back a report to the noble Union men of Teane&sc. They come from a State where just now Rebellion is rampant, but where, niV erihelccs, a ban£ of loyal hearted men men arc pulling lorth gig*ntlo exertions to roll back tha tide of treason, and save old Tenneiree from dishonor. They speak cheer imly, too, of the tjro»Dect._bUt are not blind to tue dangers that threaten. A few nights since, Mr. Etheridge went to Memphis to fill an appointment to make an Union speech. About forty of hU friends, however, knowing the mad frensy of the comunity, induced him to relinquish his de sign, and they gave him llieir liriaed presence as a haiy gUard until he was safely out qf Memphis. This is all that gavtd himfrciii outrage If not from death. A day or two later, on his way to speak at Pans, ky , he narrowly reaped falling into the hands of 400 furious secessionists, thirst ing for bis life. These distinguished Tennes seans were appropriately received with mark ed courtesy by CoL Oglesby, in temporary command of this post. From Mr. E heridge I learn that Andy Johnson, T. A R. Nelson, Maynard, and oth ers, are bravely and devotedly canvassing lor Union. He says Bell is misunderstood, and that he Is doing good service for the Union cause. These brave and loyal men, in the lace of these difficultly, claim to be able to see light ahead, and that old Tennessee will, by the voice of herpeople, again take her place in the ranks of the loyal States. Mr. Ethe ridge and his party were the liens of Cairo to-day. CAPT. BARKER’S DRAGOONS. Tbs Chicago Dragoons, Capt. Chariot W. Barker, reached hare from Camp Tate* last night.

THE AMERICAN CBISIB IN FRANCE How tharnews was Received—Char* ae eristics of American Telegraph* lug* [Correspondence of the New York Times.] Pams, Friday. April », I*6l. For four foil days the European public hare had before them tbs two columns of ex traordinary dispatches which the Charaeton people sent north during the bombardment sad fall of Fort Sumter ; and these dispatches being the. only history of that event that wc have received or can receive before the ar rival ©f another steamer, you may judge some what of the singular effect they produced here. A dozen glowing dispatches each terminating: “it ;s impossible to describe the grandeur of the scene” or, “For Jlfly mile* around the scene is boe of indescribable grandeu I” with high wrought pictures of crumbling fortlfio lions, exploding magazines, burning bouses, heavens obscured with tbs smoke of bursting shell?, &c., was enough to preoare the mind for tie ultimate Mil of mortality known to military annals. But we are assured by Mr. Miles, who has just returned from the cap trued iort,” that not a life was lost on either side ! The European wipes his glasses, and looks back again at the paper with amazement to assure hum elf that he is not mistaken; bat tho assertion is repeated over and over again, and he very naturally exclaims : Those wonderful Yankees! they have invented a way of taking forte without hurting any body !” The Fall of Sebastopol was announc ed in three lines, without one word on the grandeur of the scene, much less cn the ex tent of country over which the scene was fraud. The battle of Solfeiino was announced i six lines, and without one word of fanfar ronadty and y*t fifty thousand men “ oil the dust” in the short space of sixteen hours.— And while this great massacre was going on, instead of “windows, house tops and church steeples crowded with well dressed ladies and gentlemen, watching the scene through their glasses with deep emotion,” the farmers were quietly cultivating their field* within hearing of the musketry, and the housewife went on with her daily occupations, as if the artificial earthquake on the neighboring farms was a thing of every day occurrence. To a European, then, who knew nothing of the animus of the fight, who knew nothing of the diplomacy which lay hid behind this ap parent: fary of arms, the two columns of tele graphic bombast must have appeared to the last degree ridiculous. In London a word was invented on Friday, on’Change forthls event, which has had great success also at Paris. It was called a very rivil tear. News of the Rebellion* Wxiulkstok, Tuesday, May 14. Thera it some anxiety relative to the officers who were lately captured by the rebels in Texas, and discharged on thoir parole of honor not to serve against the Confederate States. The Government will bold that they owe service to the United States, and will probably require them to take the oath of allegiance. In order, however, to relieve them from the embarrassment of thtir petition, the officer* will be ordered on duty at posts which will not require them to come in direct contact with the rebel forces. Gen. Butler has complete military possess* ion-of Baltimore, and declared martial law. The Massachusetts SlxJh had the boner of leading the advance from the Relay Honse, and to be the first to enter the city. This was the Regiment that the mob fired upon on the 19ih of April. They were mostly unarmed then; yesterday they returned with arms, and the wUI to nee them if occasion required. Tna mob, however, was prudent, manifesting their valor by their discretion. The Government will ss rapidly as possible remove the troops now quartered in the pub* lie buildings to encampments, within reach of tbs Departments, and where they will be sig nalled, if required. The plan of these en campments eontemplates the environment of the city, in a circuit of about six to eight miles. There is a necessity for the immediate removal of the troops from the public build ings, in order to prepare for the aeeemblirg of i Congress on the 4th of July. For, Jeff- Davis ; to the contrary, the Government still adheres i to its purpose of holding the session of the legislative branch at the capital of the nation. The Massachusetts Fifth Regiment are ex pecting P-arching orders during the present week. They have bacn out skirmishing all day. As they passed through the streets they made a very fine appearance, and were londly cheered. They went out of the city four or five miles, and practiced at skirmishing nearly all the afternoon. The practice wae witnessed by several Army officers. _ . There is no probability that the Great East ern will be purchased by the Government. It is hardly probable that she will be chartered.

I had a long conversation with a distin guished member of the Administration late last evening. lie expressed the hops that the North would receive the acceptance fcf four teen additions! New York regiments, as an earnest of the intention of the Government to re-establish its authority in all parts of the country; iud mb to assure your readers thit not only would the 6otcrhinent vigorously endeavor to repossess property, such os custom houses, naty yaru£, arsenals and forts, in Virginia as well as other seceded States; but secure to Union men every where the full- qf all their rights as American eitixsns! I asked him distinctly whether and when aggressive movements in Virginia were intended, and ho replied that the Government will assert its authority in Virginia as soon as Gen. Scott is ready. I can state authentically that Senator Chase is determined to have the prohibition of Southern shipments rigl'dly enforced. Ar rangements are now making to place armed guard boats at the disposal of the collectors in western river cities. A deputation of Union men from Louis* “viUe visited Mr. Chase to express satisfaction with stoppage of supplies t* rebels. A committee of New Yorkers headed by William B. Astor, assured the Government yesterday that money shall not be wanting until the rebellion is suppressed. Mr. Chase has been urged to issue Treasury Notes for the fourteen million loan, and will probably do so should not the whole be taken lu bonds at the old rate, of which there are strong probabilities. The last iurop«: «? Tic “ produced somS apprehension of complications with England, in consequence of blockade, among promi nent Republicans. The Government, how ever, appreheeda no difficulty, but the hearty sympathy of the whole English people, as soon as the unanimity and determination of the North to preserve the integrity of the Union are known. Dan. Sickles is here to prepare the way for his Brigade. The report that Gen. Butler has been euper seded la command of Baltimore, for trans greasing his authority is untrue. The Gov ernment approves his every act; he will be assigned to an important command. It is now understood that fifteen thousand troops will be concentrated about Fort Mon roe. Gen. Wool will probably command them. Butler is appointed Major-General Offensive operations will probably commence simultaneously with demonstrations on Har per’s Ferry and Richmond.

Nbt»* York, May 16.— The Herald's Wash- ; in <r ton correspondent states that ms the 17th ult, the War Department Issued ah order di rec r ing the commander of Fort Smith, Ark,, Forts Cobb, Gibson and Washita to evacuate, aud repair with troops and Government pro perly to Fort Leavenworth and authorizing the occupation of these posts by Arkansas volunteers, called out by the first proclamation* of the President. This explains the abandon ment of Fort Smith by its federal garrison some time since. The Government to day received advices from the squadron off Fort Pickens. No change, up to the last date, of the military status. The squadron, in accordance with in structions, haa pat a stop Co the landing of vessels from Monile and New Orleans, with supplies for the rebel army, being a complete blockade. It appears the rebel troops have been almost wholly supplied with provisions from these two ports. The stoppage of these supplies at this time will, it is tnonght, oper ate most disastrously to the troops, as they were but poorly supplied before. From the Seat of War* Harbisburou, Ma> 16—It is now reported that CoL Anderson merely told Gjv. Curtin as a report, not ae a ract, that John C. Breck inridge was to take a federal command under him.

Ex-ra Billy Smith arrived here and visited the War Department to day. He was in excel lent spirits, and says Virginia is aroused and arming to fight, but the sight of the vast pre parations here evidently oppress him. The freight mail from N.

Certain develop-nents indicate that Govern ment will make a decisive demonstration la a short time. Important From Baltimore* Baltimore, Tuesday, May 1-t —Gen. Butler’s coupd' etat is uot so much relished by some people in Baltimore, of coarse, sa it would be, but for the unfortunate circumstance that, os enrred to the Sixth Massachusetts Regi ment. There is no expression today, even, that any person eonld take exception to. I never saw Baltimore more quiet or peaceably in clined. Gen. Butler's proclamation was scattered in extras from the Clipper office by ths thousands. Everybody on the streets a&d In the Note's seemed to hare Ik It has been the subject of discussion ever since it was issued. The as* surauce contained in it that the troops were not in their midst to interrupt the business of the city, but to protect the people, preserve the peace and sustain the law?, seems to give geacal satisfaction. Shortly after its contents became kroirn, Gsa. Butler, accompanied by Colonels Ctemenoe and Parker, and three offi cers dstalled from # Msjor Cooke’s battery, all mounted, appeared in the streets, proceeding to the Gilmore House, where the General and staff dined. Before the General had finished hU dinner, a company detailed from the Sixth Massachusetts regiment, under command of C-ipL Follansbeo, appeared in front of the ho tel* !o escort Gan.

There was auothej attempt at riot on Pratt street, Baltimore, on the occasion of the passage of the Doylstown Guards, with the Rlngold battery, but the fret being known that every man had a loaded rifle, deterred any serious movements.
