This institution, we regret to say, has again
been reduced to the painful alternative of sus
pending specie payments.
In the short space of twenty days, since its
vaults were opened, we understand that the
Bank lias paid out nearly six millions ol dol
lars in specif funds.
The daily increase of the demands upon its
vaults, from the eastward,rendered it impos
sible for the Bank longer to resist the torrent.
It has reluctantly yielded to the force of impe
rious circumstances. The great error, we
consider, arose from the Legislature requiring
the Banks to resume before they were prepar
ed for it; for how can the Banks pay the peo
ple, before the people pay the Banks ? When
the Bank of England suspended specie pay
ments. it required twenty-two years to re
The irr«mense rtsmefces of the Bank or the
United States, and the zeal and integrity of
Directors,are a sufficient pledge to the pub
lic. that in the shortest possible period, it will

good faith, all its obligations. Forbearance
and moderation are, therefore, alike enjoined
bv justice and sound policy.

African Colonization.—The Journal of
Commerce, in referring to the increasing suc

following: “We learn that the receipts of the

The Life of Oliver Goldsmith, with Selec
tions from his Writings: By Washington Ir
vin*.—This is another valuable addition to
the Harpers’ Family Library, in two volumes,
forming Nos. 121 and 122 ofihat excellent col
lection. With Irving the writing of Gold
smith's Life must have been eminently, if r.ot
technically, a ‘labor of love;’ for no two au
thors with whom we are acquainted have so
many qualities in common, both of head and
heart,asColdsmith and his biographer. The
genius of each consists not in the power nor
the brilliancy of his writing.'; but it is quiet,
loving, humorsome and mildly radienl as the
beams of the setting sun. The spirit of gen
tleness, of humanity, shires through all their
works; they dwell always upon the sunny hill
side of Life—and take no account of its chill
shadow* land, or if they doit is only to light
it up with the mellow, beaming splendor of
their own genius.
Natural Curiosities.—The Boston Society
of Natural History have recently received,
through the politeness of i>. S. McCauley,
Esq., C. S. Consul at Tripoli, two rare varie
ties of African sheep. Three of these ani
mals, arum, ewe and lamb, covered with
i close, thick wool, are fine specimens of the
foul-horned variety from Ben/.ari, in the I ri
poli regency. They are also distinguished by
the great breadth of the *aii, which occasion
ing attains the weight of 15 pounds, resem
' bhnsr marrow in its substance, and esteemed
i a great delicacy by epicures. The fourth speed
! men, a ram of the Fezzan variety, is clothed
| with hair, which forms a mane upon the neck
1 and shoulders, and attains a length of several
inches on the dewlap. In the hair, as well as
long and slender legs, this animal nearly ap
proaches tl;c goat; while the projecting nose
and recurved horns, eminently distinguishes
this variety. _
“In this country/’ says an English editor,
' • it is considered the height of folly for a man
to *?et«11 unk and lie across a railroad with the
idea of obtaining repose.” The same opinion
obtains to a considerable extent in Amcuca.
Resumption.—The Ranks of this town, |
(and, we suppose, of the wtime Slate,) apree- j
ably to the arrangements entered into with
the Ranks of Baltimore, resumed specie pay
ments mi Monday last. We understand tha.
on that day, not a single note was presented
at the counters ol either ot the hanks here lor
which the specie was demanded.
We will take this occasion to state, that,
since the suspension, tin* Ranks ol this place
have furnished specie to all who have requir
ed it for ordinary business purposes—only re
fusing it to brokers and others who wanted it
to specula^ upon. —Winchester Republican.
