It is no answer or excuse to say that Ex perience hat shown that the Free Bank ing system has proved a failure. Such is not tha fact. Exnerience has shown that a banking system with perfect idam nity io the public is attainable by proper legislation. The working of the Free Bar.kiug system in New York proves this, where unddr perfected law the public have not sustained the loss of one dollar, In Banking the motto should be -'full secu ri y to the bill holder, ' and that aoctrity placed beyond the contiol of the banker.

From the Indiana Jouanal' Westes before us the eight annual re port of the Commissioners and Superin tendent of the Indiana Hospital for the fnsaue. From it we gather that 1,030 cases hnvo been admitted to the benefits of the Asylum since its first erection. Five per cent, of the whole number of patients have been discharged unimprov ed, i ilty-five per cent, have been en tirely cured, and nearly ten per cent, have partially recovered, which is not es timating the number now in the Hospi tal. The appropriation last esked of the Legislature for improvements to the south wing of the Asylum building have proved inadequate by upwards of 20.000. while the appropriations for the current expen ses of tbe Institution are full and ample. TU- : . 1 xiiB esumaieu numoer 01 insane per sons in the State including those in the Hospital, is 1,200, Soras interesting remarks on the in termarriage of relatives, as a cause of in sanity, are found in the report. The report recommends several im provements about tbe hospital, and asks for au appropriation with which to pur chase a library. An appropriation of 188.000 is aaked for as a support for 24b patients for two years after the first of April next. It is proposed to extend the north wing of the Asylum, a part to be occupied in 1856 and a part in 1858. For the two years 80.000 is asked for in extending the building. Tbe amount asked for the support of the patients and for liquidating the debts of the institution for two yesrs, is f 91, 271 34. The number of insane seeking homes in the hospital is larger than its present di mensions will accomodate. During the year ending October 31. IS5G, there were admitted into the hos pital 166 patients. Iu the same period 1? died, 6 were improved, 109 discharged as recovered.

Every document of this kind should take a wide range in exploration of the field which properly belongs to its sphere. Every question that affects the net interest to the bondholders is but lit- tie over $38,000. and show a great dt minution, to be attributed to the compe tition of railroads, which take from tha State during the winter months so great a portion of the product of the State. The swamp lands are no charges on the Treasury proper, the expenditures be ing made from the proceeds of their own sales. The heavy expenditures are on account of payment of interest on the pub lie debt, the common schools aud town ship libraries and Benevolent Institu tions. To provide for tha gradual extinction of the debt, the State Debt Sinking Fund has been croated, and the amount annu ally received is about fifty-three thou sand dollars an amount that will not ex tinguish the debt before the expiration of one hundred years. The Auditor In a communication to the General Assem bly a few days since, estimates that mill tax would liquidate it in about ten years. We presume that the mora speedy payment of it will be referred ;o tho peo pie. For the expenditures on sccount of achool purposes, the indications are that the people regard them as repaid by the increased school facilities, and the free, tuition placed in the reach of every neighborhood. For the Benevolent In stitutions, the necessary funds will be cheerfdlly voted by the people, asking only that comfort, not luxury of mere show, shall govern tbe expenditure mads by the in. The Hog Cholera or Plague. From the Indiana Journal. 7 The National Agricultural Society, at its recent meeting in Washington City, has offered a premium to induce investi gallon into the nature and remedies for this devastating disease, now rapidly di minishing the number of hoes in this and Other S-.atrs. We are not iuformsd of its prscise his tory, but believe that it made its appear ance near Aurora, in this Slate, in June last. It was supposed to have been pro duced by feeding slops at distilleries, but subsequent experience and investigation showed that slops were a better food than dry corn. The oiaeasa is highly infectious, and like human cholera, ap pears to be atmospheric. Its symptons are various, acting, sometimes, and most generally, as cholera, at others, as inflam matory, affecting the lungs or stomach, or intestines, or all of these, and then, again, the secretions, producing outward swelling and inflammation of the skin, resulting in the formation of sores, and hence, the name of plague. We have recently conversed with far mers from Jennings and Marion counties, and find that the aymptous of this dis ease in these counties are, mostlv the fol lowing: Hogs, both young and old, eat weil, apparency in usual excellent health, and after eating go to the water, drink about as much as usual, but immediately after drinking strike their teeth together, then make efforts to vomit, then jump up, lift ing all their feet from the ground, or for wards as a rabbit, accompanied by efforts to vomit.

A writer from Aurora, in the Cincio nui Gazette, estimates that unwarda td 60,000 hogs have been destroyed by within a circuit of one hundred mileeof ibat city. Such a fatal disease, especi ally when hogs are so very scarce, may well demand the efforts of tha National Agricultural Society, and all other agri cultural association?, to have its true character, end efficient remedies ascertained. A miller on Friday informed na that he d fed eulphur, which seemed to haa chacked the disease, after losing many fatted, and other valuable begs. From other places we see that tbia preventative has been efficient, and we therefore com mend its use to eur farmers. Abstract of the Auditor's Report. From the Indiana Journal.
