In the debate in the House of Representatives
on the appropriation for the mission to Russia,

use niade of it, “ as a sort of hospital for refrac
tory members, where they might enjoy otium,
but not cum dignitate.”_
To the Editor of the Alexandria Gazette..
Mr. Snowden:—Will you allow me space in
vour paper to make a remark relative to the lo
cal money concerns of this District, and espe
ciallv in reference to the Corporations of Wash
ington and Georgetown; as also the abomina
ble system of sharing, as practised by the Bro
kers in the three towns. No man can doubt
tiuit. ultimately, the holders of the Corporation
notes of Washington and Georgetow n will not
be losers. The <k cunning Isaacs” are aw are
0f this,—and accordingly, when you ask or
look for these notes, where do you find them?
Locked up in the Brokers7 chests! 1 hey regu
late for the present their value—shave them at
just what they please, and lower or raise their
• priCe in the market just as it suits their own
pleasure. Washington is one #vast Broker’s
shop. Never was there such a scene upon a
small scale. The people are fleeced—the ho
nest and industrious mechanics and laborers
are tricked out of part of their daily wages eve
ry week, and the Brokers are now reaping their
harvest from other men’s earnings. Ought this
to be so? Ought the community to submit to
it? I think not.
I believe that this could be put a stop to by the
union and determination of the business men
of this District, who ought to set their faces
against such impositions, and humanely protect
their fellow-citzens, who otherwise would be
compelled to bear this burthen, from such ag
gressions. Nay, I even think some little sacri
fice ought to be made to stop this proceeding,
and I, for one, am prepared to make it.
The Corporation of Washington may be in
debt and in difficulty. But will any man tell me
that, with the Government to back and support
the Metropolis of the Union, the holders of
its one and two dollar notes are in the end to
lose their money, or the half of it, or the tenth
part of it? And ought it to be borne that some
dozen or two Brokers are to depreciate these
notes, at their own will and pleasure, to fifty
per cent, below par, and render the issues of
the Corporation useless?
1 would earnestly call public attention to this
subject. The situation of the local currency
of the District perplexes and annoys every
irnan, and I may add woman too, in the Dis
trict. i think that the derangement is in a great
degree unnecessary, and might be remedied by
a proper action on the part, especially, of the
merchants, traders and banks, who are them
selves vitally interested In the matter.
Altx’a., May 3, 1834. A CITIZEN.
To the Editor of the Alexandria Gazette.
Mr. Snowden:—Mr. Taney promised us a
'safer and a better currency,” and we are now
reaping the benefits of the “ Experiment” in
this town. No one doubts the solvency of the
Virginia Banks; yet; from the interruption of
Exchanges, and the immediate want of funds
that are convertible on the spot into specie, Vir
ginia paper is from 1 to 3 per cent, discount:
and every business man is suffering more or
less in consequence. The dry goods or groce
ry merchant, who sells his goods to the country
merchant, receives his remittances in Virginia
paper, and before he can use it to pay his town
debts or drafts on him from the North, has to
undergo the operation of shaving to the tune of
* 1*2 per cent.
The flour merchants, in consequence of the
confidence the Virginians have in their own
Banks, buy up Virginia paper, and pay it out
to the wagbners for Flour. This enables them
0 give a greater price than they otherwise
couto, as they can sell their flour for town funds
und purchase Virginia paper at a discount.
but lhe flour merchant, who has flour consign
to him, and the proceeds deposited to the
rtodit of the owner, subject to his order, is the
offerer, having to give the current market price
111 ^ lrginia paper, and subjected to the pa> ment
town funds. Thus you will perceive that all
*u^er> more or less; and none are benefitted,
Xcept it be the Brokers. I have thus pointed
'JUt toe evil w ithout being able to suggest a re
unless it be by the action of Congress or
“e People; and, from late indications, there is
some hope even from the White House, it
uving been satisfactorily ascertained that the
Old Roman” may in some cases be forced to
•totract.
As regards the evil spoken of, so far as re
Jy*8 to our tow-n, my impression is that it might
e lessened by our Banks taking Virginia pa
at a small discount, say sufficient to remu
nerale them for the delay and expense of con
ing it into District funds*—though I am free
0 confess that I am not sufficiently skilled in
s,1ch matters to risk an opinion on the curren
f; Nvith any degree of confidence when we
see such total failures in the calculations or
“ such” men as Honest Amos and Mr. Taney.
On the subject of shaving, I speak experimen
tally, having since the pressure been alternate^
ly the shaver and shavee: but my object is, if
possible, to reduce the AGIO.
Alexa.,, May 3, 1834.
To the Editor of the Alexandria Gazette.
My business in this state
Made me a looker-on here in Vienna,
Where 1 have seen corruption boil and bubble,
Till it o’errun the stew.”
When shall we see the last of the evils result
ing from the seizure of the public funds by
the Government”? We understand that all
the bonds given for duties on goods imported
into this place are now collected in the pet Bank
at Washington,—thus subjecting our merchants
to the expense and inconvenience of going or
sending to the city. Will they tamely submit to
thisimposition? Is this arrangement permanent?
or is Mr. Taney waiting to see which of our
Banks will hurra the loudest, and be most rea
dy to defend him in the public newspapers, af
ter the manner of the President of the Balti
more pet Bank? We wish it understood that
we make these enquiries without consulting our
Merchants, or any person connected, directly
or indirectly, with either of our Banks; though
we have heard much complaint, and think it
singular that the Bank of the Metropolis, which,
to say the least, is no safer than ours, should
have been selected to collect bonds due in Al
exandria, when the solvency of our Banks is
undoubted. We should like to know what our
Collector has been about. He found no difficul
ty, we believe, on a former occasion, when
elected President of a Jackson Bank, in obtain
ing for it the collector! of a"part,- if not all, of
the duties due in A*)6iiRlna:

PE^ANK^feOMMODATION TO
* MERCHANTS.
To the Editor ofithe. A&ewandria Gazette.
When the deposites were' removed by order of
Gen. Jackson, among other injunctions to his
Pet Banks, Mr. Taney directeirthem to accom
modate the merchants, especially the importing
merchants, by lending them money to aid them
in paying Custom House Bonds due to “ The
Government.”
. We have lately had a practical example of
the degree of favor which the merchants of
Alexandria are to expect from the Pet Banks
of this District. Some time after the failure of
the Bank of Alexandria, (one of the fruits of the
“Experiment,”) the Collector of this Port was di
rected by the Secretary of the Treasury to place
his Custom House Bonds in the Bank of the Me -
tropolis for collection. A citizen of this town,
having a bond falling due the past week for near
$2000, applied to the Board of that Bank for a
discount to aid him in taking up his bond. He
did not obtain a dollar, and was obliged, at
whatever sacrifice, to pay up the whole amount.
And for what purpose, 1 would ask, is the mo
ney thus wrung from the merchants of Alexan
dria? Why, sir, for the purpose of swelling
the amount of the Government deposites in the
Bank of the Metropolis, which already exceeds
half a million of dollars. It is also confident
ly believed, that on the very day upon which
this application was rejected, a Jackson office
holder of this place, who, of course, could
have no Custom House Bonds to pay, obtained
a loan of some five hundred dollars. If he did
not, he can say so. POST BOV, Jr.

Sugar Refinery.—This bids fair to become a
profitable business at the South. The New Or
leans Advertiser of a late date says:—
“There are now loading at the Sugar Refi
nery of Messrs. Forestall & Co. four vessels for
the Mediterranean. The Refinery is situated
about two miles below the City. One hundred
and thirty men are employed in it, and the
quantity of sugar refined amounts annually to
about 12,000,000 pounds. The whole process
is done by steam, and it is said to be without ex
ception, the most extensive and complete esta
blishment of the kind in the whole world.
$10 REWARD.

coat pocket, containing three or four dollars
in notes upon the Corporation of Alexandria,
and one dollar of American coin coined in
1800; also a considerable amount in promisso
! ry notes, judgment bonds, receipts, &c. &c.
I As the Pocket Book and papers can be of no
benefit to any one but myself, and of consider
able value to me, I will give the above reward

RICHMOND MARKET—May 2.
Wheat.—Nominal—none arriving.

large. Full 35,000 since the Canal opened. The
arrival has depressed prices about 50 cts a bbl.

yesterday common brands sold freely at 4 87 a

- PROSPECTUS
OF A LITERARY PAPER TO RE PUBLISHED IN RICHMOND,
By THOMAS II. WHITE,
TO BE ENTITLED
The Southern Literary Messenger,
To he devoted to every department of Literature
and the Fine Arts.
IT is a remarkable fact, that, in all the South
ern portion of our Union, there is not one
journal of a character exclusively literary. Not
even does “ the great State” of Virginia, with
her two Universities and her three Colleges,
furnish her quota to the literature of the day.
No one of us would be willing to admit that this
results from want of literary talent or of literary
taste, yet no one essays to cast off the reproach
—for reproach it certainly is, that a department,
oi literature now occupying so conspicuous a
station, should with us be entirely neglected.
Asa literary journal performs an important
function in the present organization of society,
it behooves him w ho presumes to undertake such
a work, to bring to the undertaking a fixed de
termination to make it worthy the rank which it
ought to occupy and the end which it ought to
fulfil.
Such, the Publisher of “the Southern Lite
rary Messenger” can with confidence assert, is
the determination with which he regards the en
tcrprize before him.
If talents can be commanded by money—and
if unremitting diligence and steady persever
ance on his part will produce their ordinary re
sults, then may he venture to assure all those
whose regard for literature may prompt them
to look upon the design with favor, that “ The
Southern Literary Messenger” will be worthy
] of their patronage.
The Southern Literary Messenger will em
j brace every subject within the range of litera
; tureand the fine arts; and that the scope of sc
i lection may be as wide as possible, and insure a
; body of matter always interesting, the best
J foreign, and all the domestic reviews and other
1 periodicals, will be constantly at the disposal of
; the editorial department.
j In fine no trouble or expense will be spared to
! render the publication such a one as an enlight
i ened public will take pleasure in supporting.
CONDITIONS.
The “SOUTHERN LITERARY MESSEN
! GER” will be issued once a fortnight. The
first number to appear on the 15th of June.—
