The Baltimore American says —

gloomy aspect. The pre>-ure has continued
Through the week w ithout any diminution, and
we see little prospect oi any immediate ri-liel.
The wholesale failures ot Bmk> and Bankers
in the West has seiiouj.lv impaired public con

affected to a greater or les'* degree by them.—
Our own Banks have very materially contracted
Their discount lilies, ami a 'cry large quamuy oi

fe&plaiiMtor> .
We said last week that we had heard that j
citizens of this county had been fraudulently
dealt with by city merchants, lhis thing
had been made a common topic of conversa
tion in this place, and we knew that the
assertion had been made, in the mo>t posi
tive terms, by citizens of the utmost re
liability. t’onsidering it our duty, in our j
bumble sphere, to watch over the interests
of our hdlow-citizens and patrons, and hav
ing been, though most unjustly, taunted
with being “afraid t*> publish anything j
against Alexandria lest we should lose bv
ir." we thought it right to make known
what we had heard. With regard to the pro
priety of this course w e have not changed our
opinion. The affair had already received all
the publicity that common conversati w could
give it, and must have become generally
though less speedily known, without our
agency. We have the highest respect for the 1
good people of Alexandria, and we deeply
regret tiiat any part of our course should he
offensive to them: hut we owe a duty in the
first place to our own citizens, and we must
he allowed to discharge it to the host of our
ahiiitv, regardless of the consequences.
We would greatly prefer that the gentle
men who believe themselves t * have been
victimized, in this instance, would take tin4 j
responsibility, and make a public statement
.*f the facts, but we cannot see that there is
any moral obligation on our part to publish
to the world their private affairs, without
their permission. As to our resj e<*ted cotem
|M»raries of the press, we are truly sorry t *
incur their displeasure in a matter of this
sort. They must permit us, however, to ex
ercise the same privileges with regard to
our own community which they do m rela
tion to theirs, and to raise a note of warning
when we have reason to believe that their
rights and interests are endangered. \\ ho the
delinquents in this ease are, and where they
reside, we know no more than they do, hut
w e do know that there are such per* n< to he
found in all communities, and no sine man
will be disposed to visit their sins upon the
whole class to which they belong. — Pi^hnonf t

one locality,) in this place. The first at Mr.
John Tatsapaugh’s residence on IVmcc street,
(lower end,)—from a wardrobe in his house,
about £l-*’> in silver were stolen. The next
wisat Mrs. Kngelbre< id’s, adjoining, where
SdO in gold and silver were taken from a

robbed of S90, in gold. These robberies
took place in the day time. The thieves

are aroused. It will be well for our citizens
to l»e on the look out.
