Sm?—At tfie time when President Jackson announced bis intention of removing the Depo sites from the United States Bank, and thus evfnced his settled determination to hunt that in •tituljon ** to the death,” the “Examiner,” in announcing that event, stated that a deed had Men committed, which would agitate the people of this Union, like the tremblings of an earth quake. I must confess, that, at that period, I wa» more sceptical in relation to the effects which it would produce. I had thought that aP w>«* fears enicrt .toed as to the tlisaslrouscnnaeque •< e that would emanate trnro that official act. were idle and illusory: mil that although that iusiitu tion*wmnl benefit to the country, yet that its destruction w'iiuhI be attended with but little of «vil. My eyes have since been painfully open * ed to the fallacy of that opinion. I have seen e.iough ard too much of proof to make me desire * to see no mor£ It is true the hurricane has not vet been unloosed’; the storm has not yet hurst in its furv: but l feet not a whit the less (iu biouH of the desolation which it is to spread, and the fi reeues^yyith which it is to rage, because I can see notttdy. as yet, but the darkened and surcharged horizon. But perhaps 1. err, in stating that the storm has not actually commenced. We who are re ' siding here, cannot but b*i sensible that its ope rations have already begun. We have already seen, in the wide distress which has been caused bv that act, that we will, indeed, have to fortify . < our minds and brace our hearts against The pre sentatmn of scenes perhaps of unequa'led mise ry; and that the rum which, in consequence, is to • traverse some portions of the country, will be no less sudden and effectual than terrible and ap palling in its consequences. . Tru!v. then, m<iv it be said, that this act will agitate like the tremblings of nn earthquake. If bankruptcy, and ruin, and poverty, and distress, have aught in them that can move the fears ol men. then let them now prepare for wild com motion. ThisrcMy, in which I am now writing, ia even at this moment a scene of dismay and consternation. The trading and commercial world have been the first to feel and be borne down bv the workings of this deed; and from their distress we mav gather some faint image of the evils that are to ensue. The great mammoth Hanking Institution. - which had inserted its fibres ip the very vitals of this nation and. in every interest of the people, is now, in consequence of the course of the Exe cutive, about to susoend its energies, and with* draw its impulses, from the 9tage of action, * The experiment, to say the least, must be haz ardous, and its effects, ong or the other way, must be striking. According to the observations which have been latterly forced upon me, it in deed seems, that this institution has borne the •ame relation to trade and commerce which the heart bears to the vascular system of the human frame, gtving it impetus and vigor. If every thing prospered, under its benign operation, as « every thing did prosper, why should they at* texpt the dangerous, and perhaps the fatal, ex* pen men t of removal and substitution? It ap pear* to me that it is as though a vicious or igno rant surgeon should recommend to a person en joying robust health, that in order to promote longevi'v, and increase his bodily vigor, he should remove his heart, which had hitherto done him good service, and substitute in lieu thereof another machine of greater volume,‘.capability and power. Would oot the man who could re n commend so wild and mad a scheme, be written ^own either as a villain or a fool?—and yet here have we presented to us an instance of almost flagrant malevolence, or as flagrant folly. Hut I do not here intend to enter into a detail ed argument of this question.—Abler hands have .already accomplished that task. My sole and whole intent is to lift a warning voice to the peo ple of this land; to conjure them, ere it shall be too late, to look at the disasters that await them in the future, and to provide against them with promptness anti decision. If they are content to see their dearest interests sacrificed to the arbi trary caprice of one man?—if they desire that the will of the majority shall not rule?—if they n i wish (o see distress pervade the land, and their happy and peaceful firesides to become the abodes ot want and privation?—let them not hearken to me!—for, in their quiet slumbers, these things will surely happen. But if the will of the ma jority is to triumph—if our land is yet to conti nue the home of freedom, and our people and our cities to flourish—if these are objects wor thy of strife and contest,—then let them awake j and be vigilant; for now, if ever, wide and sweeping peril menaces their dearest institutions. It has now, however, become a matter of dol lars and cents no longer. [ verily believe that the combat which must now take place will be between Freedom and her sons on the one hand, and Despotism end its slaves on the other. We are not to combat merely for this Banking insti tution, or that Banking institution.—We are to fight for that which is dearer than aery moneyed institution on the globe. We are to fizht for principle. The power of-the Executive is mak ing rapid and fearful strides towards an unenn trolled and unchecked dominion: the will of the people, as expressed by a large majority of their representatives, is utterly disregarded and de spfsed: the crushing power of the veto beats down all opposition. No matter what may have been the barrier interposed by law, the rouiih arm of the Executive prostrates and overcomes it; and the whole power of government, with all its treasure, its patronage and influence, has been wielded to aid and abet the cause of party. The Roman proscription has been re enacted. Old and tried officers have been cast loose upon the world, to recompense with the “ spoils of victory” the fawning sycophant and obedient slave. Every whim of the.Chief Magistrate has been gratified, no matter what mav have been the cost, or what the hazard.—and to satisfy them, the very operations of government have been checked. The will of the people has not been weighed as dust in the balance against his lightest wish. And these have been the results: —The most popular institutions have b*-en de molished: the hands of Congress have been tied; the laws have been administered or not at the dictation of Executive will;—and, in'fin**, there may DC now saia 10 uc uui une guirrmug io this government of checks, and that is, the will of Andrew Jackson. But I find I have diverged from the main ob ject which 1 had in view. It was to notice the calamities which have alreadv resulted from the course of the Executive, in relation to the U. S. Bank. .Great and overwhelming has been the distress .caused by that ill-fated act. The coun trv, far and wide, has already began to sound its complaints of the evil policy which dictated that measure: tor instance, the people of this Citv are indebted in an enormous sum to the said Bank. The Bank, iu winding up its affairs and withdrawing its paper from circulation, must shortly demand the payment thereof. If time could bp given, all, perhaps, could bp saved} but the “yS«/” of the “ political Jehovah” has gone forth, ami time cannot be given. Ruin for many is the consequence;—but this is not to be the on ly theatre oi distress: from the fartherest South to the extremp North of this Union, each and every spot will bo more or less subject to its vi sits'ion; and many is the smiling and happy fire side now, which ere long will be wet with the scalding tear of the brankrupt and the ruined. [11 the strength and in tlie unity of the Ame rican people resides ihe only remedy for these I manifold and impending evils. They are em I phaticallv the arbiters of thpjr own fate, and the issue which from tins time forward is to be tried 1 may well make them tremble to think of the aw j ftil responsibility *hu-h rests solely upon them. That that decision may be such as to avert curses and procure blessings for our country, cannot but be the prayer and anxious wish of every one# calling himself AN AMERICAN. Waihingtnn City, I). C.% Nov. 5, 1833. Editorial Convention —The idea, stated a year or two ago, of a Convention of Editors, to be held in Washington or Baltimore, has been lately revived, and has met with decided favor among the members of the fraternity. Indeed the affair mav be considered already arranged, as a me-ting of proprietors and - editors of pa pers in Philadelphia wa9 called, for last Satuiday evening, with reference to the subject —and doubtless the example will be followed bv gen tlemen connected with the press in the other ci ties. "We think Baltimore the most fitting place for the meeting. There are many objections to Washington, during the Session of Congress.— The city would be then crowded and difficulty experienced in procuring accommodations.-— : Besides, we should not- like to sep the body ex ! posed to the baleful political influence which i will be there so rife. The time should be fixed at a period, so late in the season, as to render it probable that the Steam Boats on the different lines would be running—not earlier than the 15th April. There are many sutyects. intimately connec ted with the interest of the public press, which might be discussed in the Convention—but, we confess, it is not with reference to any finan cial considerations, that we anticipate with plea sure such a meeting. We believe it would ex ert a most salutary influence, upon the tone and character of the press, for years to come. An intercharge of the courtesies of life, personal in tercourse, and all the nameless influences of I such a meeting, would go far to banish the coarse invective, scurrilous abuse, and person ality. which disgrace so many of the Journals of the country. There is one difficulty,'which has suggested itself. What will become of the public, if two or three hundred of its faithful sentinels leave, even for a brief season, their posts?

By the ship Ajax, Captain Heim, we have London dates of the 29:h of September, and Liv erpool of,the 30th, the day of her sailing. N Y. Com. There is not a svlable of political intelligence from England; and the only incident worth no ting, of any other description, is an account of the detection of a French smuggler, of some rank, who ha* been using the seals of the French Foreign office- The annexed article upon this subject, U from the Sun of Sept 26th:— When we alluded yesterday to the great smuggling transaction in which the Seals of the Foreign Office in France ha* been used f<»- the parcels which were addressed to Prince Talley rand, we were not aware that there was any di rect connection between the person who intro duced the goods into this country and any official person in France. We imagined that the Seals of the Foreigo Office had been fraudulently ob^ tained'by a bribe to some underling, and that the whole affair was the contrivance of a common smuggler. It appear*, however, that the person who brought over the packages, and who was, or pretended to b**, the bearer of despatches for the French Ambassador, wa* Count F-, a former attache to a French Legation, and cousin to one of the French Minister*, General S bastiani.— Whether Count F-. ever delivered despatch es to M. «le Talleyrand or not, we cannot take upon ourselves to say, but we know that he paid frequent visits to the French embassy here, after the seizure of his goods, which he would hardly have had the impudence to have done if some person nearly connected with the French Gov ernment had not been pi ivy to this disgraceful transaction. Although the case of Count F——, is the first in which detection has taken place, ' there can be no doubt but that the speculation had been previousl y carried on to a very great ex i tent. M.tle Talleyrand, whatever he may know of the affair, has acted wisely as well a» honourably in declining to use his influence for the restora tion of the property; but we hope the matter, will nnt ract Itoi-o* anil if llto rrmwin (if fvi>npr,'ll Sp« | bastiani be still in London, that he will be pro ; ceeded against-for the penalties of his offence, i like any other smuggler. The Count has probably taken wing, and is now in Parts bewailing his foss with those who were connected with him in the speculation; but ) how did it happen that at a time, when he was in the habit of paying frequent visits to the Embas sy, w here he must have been seen by the Cus tom House officers who went there for the pur pose of having the packages opened in the pre 1 seore of the Ambassador, no attempt was made j"to detain him. j London Money M sheet, Sept. 28.—The funds are flat and continue to decline, though ! very slowly. Consols left off at 88| to j for the 1 account, and Exchequer bills at 44s a 45s premi um For commercial discounts there is a consid 1 erable demand for-money. The foreign funds are quoted generally at ra I ther lower prices, but few bargains have been j effected. Portuguese scrip left oft” at I9j to 20 premium. PORTUGAL. Nothing further from Lisbon hail been receiv ed, except a contradiction-in the Globe of the report that Marshal B;iur nont had proposed to j capitulate to Don Pedro. That paper states, j that in answer to a proposition to that eff ct. made ] by the British Ambassador. Lord Win Russell, : the Marshall had implied that lie did not feel him } self in such circumstances to render it expedient ! for him to decline recommending a further pros ecution of the com-st. The Agents of Donna Maria in England were vet verv active in recruiting for her service — 'Upwards of four hundred young men had march ed to Greenwich to embark for Lisbon A con ■ tract for fifteen thousand mu*kets, five thou i sand pistols and ten thousand sabres has been , made by the agents, to be shipped for the same J destination. LATEST FROM FRVNCE By the packet ship Sully, Captain Forbes from Havre, we have our tiles of Paris papers to the ’ 1st of October. The Sully sailed on the 2<l Mr. Livingston and suite, with the officers ; of the United States ship Brandy wine, dined with 1 the King and Royal Family, on the 26'h of Sep tember. 1 Prince Talleyrand had arrived in Paris from England. , The voyage of the Curio Alberto, from the Adriatic to Marseilles, appears to have been a I very innocent one, notwithstanding the alarm which her arrival prodtK ecJ in the French cupi tal. This steamer, it will be recoil,-, t*-d, is the | one which, in May 1832, landed the Duchess of ■ Berry in Franc s ami *: is stated that the arms of the Princess and ol her sou, are still conspicu ous in that vessel. Speaking ol the groundlessness of the alarm 1 just refered to, the Gazette de France says: — »• Whilst the juste mileu is setting oh foot all its agents to watch the frontiers of Italy, because the Duchess of Berry has passed through that country, we believe we may affirm the mother of Henry V. arrived at Prague yesterday, the 28th September, the eve of her son’s becoming of age. The Duchess is accompanied by the Viscount de Chateaubriand.” Advices from Madrid are to the 19th Septem ber. The King of Spain was in the enjoyment of perfect health. Grijalva, many years the fa vorite of King Ferditiand, is dead. Though in fact no more than a valet de chambre, he had joined to his domestic station the office of Secre tary of Commandments, private Treasurer, and Keeper of the Estamplla, Signet of the King. The Cholera was raging with severity at Se ville. Mr. Harris,, the Charge d’Affairesof the U States at Paris, was presented to the King of France on the 26th of September, with the usual ceremonies, for the purpose of taking leave. He introduced to his Majesty on .the occasion the Captain and different officers of the Delaware, recently arrived at Cherbourg. The Paris Moniteur states that the effects of the late lire at Constantinople, have been greatly exaggerated. It moreover arose from accident, and not political design. The Bugia expedition sailed from Toulon for Africa on the 22d, under (he command of JM. Dechenes. having on board 100 troops. Bugia, against which the expedition which has | sailed from Toulon is directed, is seated about half wa? between Algters and Constantine. and a few leagues from tbe mouth of Zowah, one of the most considerable river* of the llegeucy, and on the banks of which the city of Constantine is built. As a military station, according to the best opinions, it may be made a second Gibral tar. The Spaniards took possession of Bugia to* 1 wards the end of the sixteenth ceutury. i The Northern Sovereigns —The Emperor of Russia was on his way from Munrhen Gratz to Berlin. He was gratified oo hi* visit with hunting excursions and military reviews Of the nature and consequences of the resolution* adopt ed at Munchen'-Gratz, it appear-, evident that no thing has as yet been communicated to the pub lie on the subject. Many assert that the jour ney of the Emperor Nicholas was not so much owing to the invitation ot the other Monarch* a* to a wish of his own, and thence drew many in ferences. The Frankfort Pott Amt Gmett, says that all that his been done in the Conferences of There* sienstadt, Sthwedt, and Munchen-Gratz, may be summed up io the following pacific formula:— “ Maintenance and consolidation of thmtaluquo. No more concessions to the propaganda.” ! The Swabian Mercury gives the following un der date of Berlin, Sept. 17th: j “Great movements have been observed in the , Russian army in Poland, shewing that the Cabi net of St. Petersburgh is determined to be pre pared for any event. Complaints are made of : the deficiency of the harvest in the Governments of Orenborough and Ca*an. Moieov*»r, Orenbn i rough is ravaged by bands of brigands, the chiefs of which the authorities with all their vigilance have been unable to arrest.” Paris Sept SO. — Stock Exchange, Sept. 29. Half past Four o'clock. — In the early part of the day Siock was in demand for settling the account, : and consequently there was a tendency to a>» im provement, but subsequently business became flat j and the Threes clused a shade lower than yester day Foreign securities have been sough' after, and for money bargains thev have impioved. For Money the Threes have fallen 5c: the Fives have | risen 10c. Enver — Rv account* from Alexandria, it an I penrs that the Egvp'ian Governmyn* has issued : an Ordonnance prescribing as follows:—1 Toe ' prohibition of receiving Turkish coin in the Go vernment nffit es is renewed, and is to be strictl'y acted upon 2. Tne Custom-houses and Laza rettns are enjoined to seize all Turkish coin found among objects landed, 01 in the possession of tra ; vellers. 3 Tlt»- aotlim itie» are to cease all inter course with merchants who may import such coin i into Egvpt. Greece.—The Augsburg Gazette of the 24th September says: — •• Aicording to the last ac counts from Candia. tlx- Greek residents in that island are greativ dissatisfied, because they fear i that the Egyptian monopoly system will be intro duced there, in which case the chief productions of the island, such as almonds, oil, etc., would be bougnt up af a fixed prices, and sold by the Government. Their dissatisfaction i»»* lately been increased bv an Ordonnance of the Govern ment, forbidding all Greek residents in Candia to sell their property. The (irgi ks consider this a measure intended to force tnem to remain in the island.” From Jamaica —By the Neptune, the editors of the N. Y. Gazette have received. Kingston papers to the 14th ultimo. The legislature of the island was in session, and according to the editorial remarks, were likely to have a warm i sitting The various questions as to the best J 1 policy of managing the Slaves, occupied much 1 of their proceedings. The Governor’s speech was conciliatory, but, by many condemned. The Kingston Despatch of the 14th October, announces die arrival of the British packet Lvra, from Carthagena, whence she sailed on the 8th, bringing intelligence that several French vessels had arrived at that place, and that their object , was to avenge the recent insult ofleied to Mr. ! Ba> rott. the Representative of the French Court 1 at Cathagena. On their at rival a letter was de livered by the Commandant to Colonel Vesga, the Governor of Carthagena, from the Rear-Ad miral. bnvernor ol *l.n Unique, Uu9sotet, in which satisfaction wa* demanded for the insult offered ihe Freiifh F'ag, and the outrage upon the person »f Mons, Borrott, Hie representa’ive nt France. . The Governor replied with temperance, assur ing the commandant that he might carry his me naces into effect without resistance, as the place was not garrisoned, &c. ami says he, “If your Excellency wiW no» al'ow the matter to be decid ed bv the Suprero*- Authorities, executive and judicial, and insist on carrying ynut hostile de si^ns into effect against a pacific population, your Excellency will be responsible for all the evil* that may ensue. Be persuaded that I am not vested with the power of giving the satisfaction demanded—that is invested in the Supreme Go vernment, alone.” Further correspondence took place which terminated in the Commandant’s in timating his intention that he would blockade the port, if at sun down on Thursday 18th, fwll satis faction was not awarded. His Majesty’s vessel of war, the Serpent, was immediately despatched for Carthagena to protect the British subjects and interests at that place.
