^ALEXANDRIA:
A ________ ' '
MONDAY MORNING, FEB. 24, 1834.
“ 22d FEBRUARY.”
The celebration of the Anniversary of the
R'rth Day of Washington passed off coldly this ,
' throughout the country. The peculiar si-.
iuation of affairs at this time was mainly the
With us, the indisposition of the Orator ap
pointed by the Washington Society prevented
[■ e delivery of the usual address, and the in
| vmency of the weather was the cause of there
i.Pjng no military display. Salutes were fired—
National Standard displayed, and the ves
sels in port decorated with their flags.
The Annual Birth Night Ball was numerous
ly and fashionably attended, "find got up in a
tyle which reflected great credit upon the wor
host of the City Hotel. The Ball-room was
decorated with great taste under the direction
of Mr. Mountford._
THE TIMES.
We are indebted to a mercantile house in this
,’ace for the following extract of a letter, dated
New York, February 20.
u gjx failures have taken place this week, some
of them for large sums; and others, I fear, will
follow. To-day there is a great panic in Wall
street about the Western Safety Fund Banks:
their notes have been selling at 1 1-4 a 1 1-2
]ier cent, discount; but now, the Brokers will
not buy them unless at 5, 6, and some 10 per ct
discount. If Mr. Van Buren and his friends do
lot become “ fatigued” with the prospects that
now opening in regard to their “Safety
Fund’* Banks, I shall be much mistaken. The
distress in the interior of this State will soon be
terrible, unless there is some relief. Alexan
dria Mountain Flour $5 i-S a 5 1-4. New Or
leans to arrive, subject to inspection, has been
sold rt $4 3-8.
In addition to the above, we regret to learn
tuit letters were received in this place last Sa.
Ulrday, from Boston, giving accounts of more
failures in that city.
It seems, then, that the pressure and distress
ate going on, and even increasing. We ardent
ly hope for the best, but it would seem that we
are hoping against hope.
It will be seen, by the proceedings of the Se
nate on Saturday last, that Mr. Rives has re
signed his seat.
We see by the bills that the Wandering Piper
is now in town, and intends playing at the
Brooke Lodge Room to-day and to-morrow.
Richmond and Potomac Creek Railway.—The
charter of this company has passed the lower
house of the Virginia Legislature, and will, in all
probability, meet with no opposition in the Se
nate; so that the friends ofthe improvement may
consider themselves secure of an act of incorpo
ration, in many respects of a very favorable
character. _
Congressional Election in Massachusetts.—The
election of a member of Congress, to till the va
cancy occasioned by the resignation of Gover
nor Davis, took place on Monday last. From
returns received at the office of the Boston At
las, there is no doubt of the election of Le\ i
Lincoln by a large majority.
The Globe, in the name of the Kitchen Cabi
net, declares that if the State Banks refuse to
keep the Deposites, then the people’s money
shall be locked up in the iron chests of the Col
lectors of the Ports for safe keeping.
A Sank.—The ‘ Merchants and Planters Bank’
of Magnolia lately failed A committee who
investigated its affairs, reports the following
among other curious disclosures of the state of
its allairs, and the mode of transacting business.
The circulation at the time of stopping pay
ment was 865,618, and its assets in discounted
notes 875,603, of which nearly 873,000 were in
the notes of three individuals, one of whom was
the President of the Bank.
The charter requires a statement on oath of
the condition of the Bank. In November last,
the statement was made of the available funds;
of which two thirds appear to be checks drawn
by one of the same three persons on banks in
Georgia, which checks are still in the bank.
The way they did business may be gathered
from two orders passed in November. The first
declares that the President and Cashier shall be
authorized to transact all business relating to
the Bank, during the absence of a Board; and
the second, that the Cashier shall be the Board
in the absence of the President: so that, from
that day up to the suspension, the Cashier was
President, Directors and Company.
- - - ■ -
Sank of Hew Brunswick.—We omitted to no
tice yesterday the failure of this Bank, although
the following notice was sent to the office by the
C ashier. It was also sent to the Standard, the
'gracious editors and conductors of which print,
changed the language of the notice so as to read
In consequence of injurious reports of the
P>essure of the times,” instead of “and the pres
sure of the times”! This to say the least of it, was
a miserable trick, and will scarcely have the ef
cct of making the people believe that there is
'no pressure.”—H. Y. Star.
Iu consequence of injurious reports and the
p essure of the times, the President and Direct
u , the Bank of New Brunswick, have been
at (!er the necessity of suspending payment; but I
ti *nSame bme they deem it their duty to cau
banLr 6 against sacrificing the bills of said
ana tiT?S believe the bank to be solvent;
lal eventually all the bills will be redeem
er,,.,.-. F* Richmamd, Cashier.
