THE CRISIS. By the prudence, decision and 'firmness or the republicans of 1800, tho deep foun 'dations then laid for establishing a monar chical government in these States, were broken up. The alien find sedition laws wcro repealed, and llio bank aristocrats who had identified themselves with tho govern--went, were stripped of their power. The same power now as then, is struggling to establish a, monied oligarchy upon the ru ins of republican 'government. The torics add federalists of 1800, arc the bank whigs and antimasons of 1837. Mr. Jefferson once said: "Tho federal ists now call themselves republicans, but 'Hhc name alone is changed their prinei "'plos are tho same. The parties of Whig "and Tory are thosC of nature. They 6x "ist in all countries, whether called by these "names, or by those of aristocrats and.dcm "ocrats, wings and radicals, scn-ilcs and "liberals. The sickly, weakly, timid man "fears the people, and is a tory by nature: ""The healthy, strong and bold cherishes "thenv, and is formed a whig by nature." Observation and experience prove the truth of these distinctions between the great political parties. Tho avaricious, the proud, the selfish, the sickly, weak and timorous men of our day arc, with few ex ceptions, found cowering under the shadow of the bank. These are the materials for hiakJng anti-masons, abolitionists and bank whigs. Conscious that their sympathies exclude them from communion" with the grcjal body of the people, they cling togeth er in support of aristocratical forms, monop olies and bank privileges, and indulge in Bccrct hatred against the pccplc. These were the genuine tories of the revolution. On the other hand, tho generous, the disin terested, the healthy, strong and bold, are generally found in the ranks of the repub lican party. They partake of the spirit of the great mass of the community their sympathies arc with the people. ' They confide, in their virtue and intelligence, and their capacity for self government. These wcro the whigs of the revolution, and to such men arc we indebted for that large share of civil liberty which has fallen lb our lot. There is a clinching proof of these truths to be found in the fact, that most young men who arc left to themselves to judge of political parties, range them selves on the democratic side, By look fag around us we will find in every section jfiid quarter of the state, leading anti-masons and bank whigs, who, when young, ardent, ingenuous and,.confiding, set out upon llieir political career in the democratic ranks but when the cold, calculating, tim orous caution of age that ambition which is a vice avarice and selfishness, take pos session of tho man, he naturally becomes a lory a bank whig, an anti-mason, a mon opolist. Hence, many of those who once were loudest in defence of equal rights and popular sovereignty, aie now tho wjlling tools of the bank. The present Governor, and many of his officers and supporters, furnishing living testimony of such aposta cy. They have lost the confidence of the people, and arc seeking shelter under the band. They have exchanged the generous support of the community, for the concen trated power and corrupting influence of a monied oligarchy, and are now struggling, with "all the aristocrats, monarchists and monopolists, to unsettle the foundations of this government to divest the people of their rights, and to organize a government deriving its powers from tho bank, and sub ject to its supervision and dictation. To the people we appeal, with confi dence, in this emergency. The great ma jority arc republicans by nature. Thoy arc free, and wish all men to be free. Their confidence is in themselves thoy arc the legitimate rulers of tho land they derive 'their sovereignty from their God, and hold, it by a title paramount to tho two-penny pretended contracts of bank torics and mon opolists. They arc preparing themselves for the 'decision of the great question, whether they or the lank shall rule? They arc rccurrinfr to the foundations of tho Govern ment, to the wisdom and experience of those great and good men who founded it, and by these lights of popular sovereignty 'they will be guided. They arc examining the rotten and corrupt (itfc by which the -bank and its band of mercenaries and mon mrchists claim to rule the land, Engaged in this examination wc see a great people calm ly deliberating upon tho best means of lire serving to themselves and their posterity tho inestimable blessings of civil and reli gious liberty, and the result of their rcflcc tiions will be such as must cheer tho heart rof every lover of free government and equal -rights. '. Reporter. These arc the warning words of tho groat oraclcof deirio'cracy, Thomas Jefiprson. It is grateful to the patriot to sec the demo cratic editors throughout the statcih this tremendous crisis ofour all'airs, looking to the great light of republican government to guitle us through the gloom which the bank, and monied corporations have spread over the land. The great lights of the revolu tion of 1770, and 'the cfvil revolution of 1800, can alorro dispel thp clouds and dark ness that hang over us. The single, eye of Thomas Jefferson saw the machinations of tho monarchists and aristocrats. IIo met them and triumphed in the war of the rev olution he met them and triumphed, in the civil revolution of 1800, and with his com patriots, redeemed these states from tho controlling power of British agents, Bank aristocrats and monarchists, and restored to the people their just rights. He knew tho wiles and the tricks of the foes of equal privileges and sp'read before tho people, in living characters, their dangers arid the remedy. With what singular accuracy he has given the outlines of the present condi tion of thingsl "Jin aristocracy founded on banking institutions and monied cor porations HIDING AND RULING OVER THE PLUNDERED PI.OU01IMAN AND DEOOAUED yeomanry." Sec the thousands of indus trious mechanics and manufacturers who have been deprived of the means of living by the accursed derangements of the cur rency, and tha panics produced by the Hank! Mark the unholy speculations in bread-stuffs, made with the means and un der the patronage of the Bank, by which the poor have been almost deprived of bread! Ijook at tho "shin plaster" currency which the Bank has made the representative of labor and property, taxing the labour of tho many for the benefit of the few! It ia thus this monied corporation, this "balance- wheel" of Gov. ltitncr this rank oligarchy is RULING AND RIDING OVER THE PLUNDERED PLOUGHMAN AND BEGGARED YEOMANRY!" Ib. "HAS IT A STING IN ITS TAIL?" When the charter of the Bank of the U nited States was presented, in 18U0, to Gov. Ritncr for his signature, his Excellency was pleased most jocularly to enquire "Ttficlher it had a sting in the tail?" Tho question thus jocularly asked can now be seriously and satisfactorily answered by tho people. The "sting in its tail" has slang thousands of honest citizens, and de prived them of their regular means of liv ing. It has stung the gold and silver cur rency and expelled it from circulation, and has venomously supplied its place by a tor rent of "sliin-plasters."-l-It lids slung the trade and business upon tho public im provements, aiid cankered public confi dence. It has slung the general welfare and prosperity of the people! Will it not, in the agonies produced by the overwhelm ing dread of popular sovereignty, sting the Governor himself, and all who ate seeking protection from its power ? Ib. VAIMOUS MATTERS.

Chronicle. OPPRESSIVE FLOUR MONOPOLY. Wc hope if the heartless conspiracy spo ken of in the following, from the Baltimore Gazette has extended to our state, that our farmers will not aid it by selling their grain to those who wish to speculate upon the wants and necessities of the community. The man who monopolizes provisions and particularly bread stufTs, tho staff of life, justly deserves the execrations of the com munity against whose welfare fie sins. .Ilarmuig Flour . combination. The Buffalo Journal of the 1st says there is eve ry reason to beliovc that notwithstanding the immense yield of tho grain crops this season, tho manufacturers and dealers in flour are busily at work to forestall and buy up tho market. The extent and ramifica tion of this secret combination is incredible and their resources ample. The above paper says: "We could name, we believe a single bank for instance eatswatd of us, which within a few days has engaged to make discounts to the amount of at least 81-10,- 000 to three individuals for the purchase of wheat and the agents ol which individuals have already passed through this city and gone west to purchase wheat of the new crop. Wd could also name an association of individuals in another part 6f our state, who already own one .'bank in Michigan and another in tho valley of the Scioto, Ohio; if not indeed dtner banks, whoso agents are in the field making purchases, to say noth ing of the dozens of other largo rfiilling e- stablishments who nave tliciragouts scatter ed in all directions and whoso means obtain ed from a large number of banks which arc completely at their control, arc of the most ample kind. And lurther wo think wc could designate from seven to ten banking institutions in this state which aro themcro creatures of these monopolists and three fourths of whoso discounts are either indi rectly made to these men and whose de mand they daro not at any time gainsay. And further still, wc most conscientiously bolievc that an effort will he mado by these monopolists to induce the bank co'mmis sioncrs to deal most rigorously with, or, in tho words of one of them, to "spur iltj" all tho westoro banks at least which will not come into their measures and minister to their speculations." Gov. Ritner"! still romains dumb in rela tion to the Banks'. When will he cease to violate the Law by demanding a statement of their condition! PiTTsnunoii. According to Harris'sticw Directory, the city of J'ittsburg and its en virons, comprising a circle of five miles, contains over -111, GOO inhabitants.

A thriving tradesman in a southern srlcct of our city, who had married and was liv ing happily with his wife and family, had his domestic peace disturbed last week, by the very mal apropos visit of a former wife, whoso existence ho had entirely forgotten to mention in the hurry of his second mar riage. The unwelcome visiter is described as being of the true Xantippc stock, while the chosen partner of his name and home, is said to bo 'extremely amiable. The thun derstricken, puzzled, dumbfounded trades man, by trade a tailor, was so affrighted at the occurrence, that he did not even stay to sing "How happy could I be with cither" but fairly fled from the scene of action, and has not been heard o( since. Much sym pathy is felt for tho second wife, who is the mother of two beautiful children. The le gal claimant was too furious in her manner, and too vulgar in her abuse, to excite that commisscration which her case certainly ought to command. Saturday Chron. The Now York Times informs us that a "Mr. B., -10 years a resident of Now York, removed wi'th one son aiid three daughters, to Michigan in 1833; purchased a cultivated farm of 3'20 acres for 81,500, on the road from Detroit to St. Joseph's; raised -1,000 bushels of wheat, corn, and oats in 1830, and -1,500 bushels in 1837. His crops last year sold for $3,500. His three daughters have married, his produce finds a ready market at his door, and he is independently rich.
