It is thought that the New York city
banks will soon resume specie payments,
in consequence of the accumulation of
specie in their vaults. The Baltimore
Patriot, in its money article of last even
ing, deprecates the policy of an early re
sumption, believing that such a step, be
fore fully justified by business, would be
exceedingly disastrous. In New York,
yesterday, there was intonse excitement in
stocks, and the bank statement made af
ter the adjournment of the second board
created a still greater buoyaucy. In Bos
ton, money is easier, with large tran
sactions, and stocks rule at higher pri
A treaty was probably signed on Mon

transit route.
A man who was shot in Washington on

By advices from Liberia to Sept. 21st.,
it appears that that the Emperor of the
French is accused of attempting a revival
of the slave trade. The British cruisers
had seized vessels bearing the American
and Spanish flags, on suspicion of being
engaged in that traffic.

8®“ In November, 1811, Gen. Harri
son was at Prophet’s Town, on the Wa
bash, with a body of Kentucky and Indi
ana soldiery and the 4th U. S. Regiment
under Col. Boyd. Gen. Hull, Governor of
Michigan Territory, surrendered to the
British, July 12th 1812, with 2000 regu
lars and volunteers. Can any one versed
in the annals of that period inform us
what U. S. Regim ent was at both the bat

One of the things most commonly coun
selled, and nevertheless practiced with
least wisdom, is economy. It is very ea
sy to declaim against extravagance and
advise to prudence. It does not require
any extraordinary penetration to show
one’s neighbor a hundred matters which
demand retrenchment, nor does it take
lany wonderfully sharp sagacity to smooth
lout before him, very plainly and prettily,
the ways by which ho should pursue it.—
I But, as the doctor can prescribe for his
(patients, and the lawyer counsel his cli
jents, better, vastly, than either of them
an do when medical or legal skill is nee
led for himself, so the sage adviser of
Bconomy, with his “wise saws and mod
ern instances," find* it never so difficult
square his own habits to his maxims
-to make them the rules of his indi
vidual and daily conduct. Everywhere
the world there is a wide hiatus be
Iween preaching and practice—as wide an
Ine, surely, as yawns between the ideal
Ind the real. Many a man like old IIora
[ius, sees, admires, and would follow
re right, but cannot conveniently attain
So it seems to be ordered in this
phere—that we all be somewhat in the
of the fabulous chap in Hades
Hio was continually clutching after
plicious grape-clusters that were “all
his eye.” That branch of practi
. mathematics which is called Mechan
unfolds the fact to the student that,
the actual application of his principles
Ld forces, certain elements are to be re
rded which the pure science knows
(thing of. There is the matter of fric
I®_aye, there’s the rub—for which the
ffianician is taught to allow one third,
st so is it, in the use of all rules what
soever. Untoward circumstances, un
looked-for accidents, are found to hinder
the putting into act of the fairest plans.
A young man, whose experience of life
has been mainly shut up within himself
—a thing of the senses and of faucy—
sits down some pleasant day, shortly be
fore he “comes of age,” to make plans for
the future, and to “calculate” a little. It
seems to him, perhaps, that he will not
do like most men—that he will abjure cer
tain oftheir vices, that he will be “indus
trious” and “economical.” It scents to
him that the necessary' cost of living is
quite small; and beautiful dreams of
wealth dance, like rainbows of promise,
before his vision. He begins to tread this
road, but finds soon enough, that the alar
ming and important item of “incidental
expenses” has been left out of his arith
metic. Before long he goes down, as
many a gallant shallop has before him,
and lapses' into the unhoping shiftless
ness and stolid content with luck, of ordi
nary men. Often it happens that his ex
penditures exceed his income, a big bal
ance is always looming up at him dis
couragingly from the wrong page of his
ledger,and he goes out of the world, final
ly, in debt to it.
Yet thrift is possible. Possible, but
not easy. Like Jordan, in the Americo
African ballad, it is a difficult highway to
journey upon. To keep straight onward
in this road, without wandering from it
like Bunyan’s Christian, or looking back
like Lot’s better-half, is no small job.—
Courage amounting to heroism, energy,
discretion—and these kept active with
out flagging for an hour—must be the
Mentos to his Telemachus.
True thrift is not parsimony nor asceti
eism any more than it is intemperate ex
cess. Thrift is only a realizing in one’s
affairs of that temperance which was the
best practical virtue of the Greek ethics.
The thrifty man is neither a prodigal nor
a miser. He will neither waste nor
hoard. Money he knows was made for
man, not man for money. He uses it and
seeks it, because, as the world goes, it is
useful and desirable.
Thrift—the very term is hearty and in
vigorating—one of those good old whole
some words that it even does one a bene
fit to speak. It smacks of prosperity and
comfort; and may the day be far off when
the dictionary shall be mutilated of it and
when it shall become obsolete as a motto
of honest living.
Suicide.—Mr. John Clemmer commit
ted suicide by hanging himself,near Mid
dlebrook, Augusta county, week before
last. Ho had been suffering under mental
derangement for some time,and had been
placed in the Asylum at Staunton, under
the care of Dr. Stribliug who thought he
was well enough to enjoy some liberty.
He accordingly, the previous Saturday,
gave him permission to take a short walk,
from which he did not return.—Diligent
search was made for him in the vicinity
of his own home and among his friends,
but all in vain, none having seen or heard
of him. On the following Thursday he
was found, fifteen miles distant, hanging
by a rope in his brother’s barn. It was
impossible to tell how long he had been
dead before found.
A Dangerous Fellow.—Dr. Hayne,
a famous bigamist,who has a wife in near
ly every State in the Union, has just
emerged from a five years’ imprisonment
in Kentucky State Prison. He has ar
rived in Louisville, and the Courier says:
“We warn the ladies to guard well their
hearts, for the Doctor says ho can marry
any woman he may choose on first ac
quaintance, and in the brief time of five
A Difference.—A New York letter
has the following interesting item of the
It is stated that a clown town merchant
recently repaired to his wife to say that
he lacked $1,400 towards payment of a
note, which, if ho did not meet, would
result in bankruptcy, whereupon his wife
gave him $5,000 in gold and notes saved
from her house money. That a brother
of this same merchant laid by $1,000 in
gold at home, being afraid to trust the
banks, in order to meet a note. When
its use was required, he found it missing.
Ilis wife had bought a $1,000 set of furs
with it at Stewart’s, and the merchant
The Workingmens’ Demonstrations.
—This excitement appears to have entire
ly subsided about town. The movements
made, and the arrangements perfected for
work and food, have a tendency to allay
the fears of starvation which had seized
some of the men who have been promi
nent in these public demonstrations.—
The great street cleaning contract will
find an unexpected opportunity to labor
for many of the men, at a season when
work is scarce, and the pay of a thousand
men per week in the Central Park will al
so furnish relief. Upon the whole, there
is rather a dying out of the fever which
raged a week since on the work and food
question. There are, however, needy and
bread-wanting men and women in our
midst, they are being sought out, and it
: is to be hoped that they will be reached,
and their cases all relieved, as far as pos
sible, before winter come on.—N. Y. Day
From Washington.
Washington, Nov. 16.—There is little
if any doubt that a treaty was signed to- j
day by Secretary Cass and the Nicara
guan Minister, Yrisarri, relative to the j
transit route. The route is to be protec- 1
ted by the United States troops during
the inability of Nicaragua to do so, and
a free port is to be guaranteed at each end
of the line. No company is protected by
name, but only that having a valid grant,
which shall recognize the obligation of
this treaty. The Government of Nicara
gua, has, through its Minister, signified
to the Government of the United States
that the only company having such grant
is the American Atlantic and Pacific Ship
Canal Company, created by Nicaragua in
1849, and amended in June last. Yri
sarri will be formally presented to the
President to-morrow.

British cruisers had seized a number of
vessels bearing the American and Spanish
flags on suspicion of being engaged in the
slave traffic. The publication of the Li
beria Herald had been suspended for want
of support. All danger of a threatened fa
mine had disappeared, and the crop pros
pects were improving.
Interesting from Kansas,&e.
St. Louis, Nov. 14.—The Lecompton
correspondent of the Republican says that
the Kansas Constitutional Convention ad
journed on thoTthiust. A provisional
government, with General Calhoun as
Governor, was formed, to go into opera
tion immediately.
The Convention passed a separate
clause sanctioning slavery, which it the
only section that will be submitted to the
people. It is thought to bo the design to
get the constitution accepted by Congress
prior to the assembling of the Territorial
Governor Walker has lie en appealed to
to convene an extra session to met this
contingency. The apportionment of the
State provides for forty-five Representati
ves and fifteen Senators.
Excitement in Stocks—Specie in
Bank—Early Resumption Ine
New York, Nov. 10th.—There has
been an intense excitement to-day in
stocks. The bulls have complete posses
sion ot the market. The bank statement,
made after the adjournment of the second
board, announcing the specie lino to bo
nineteen and a half millions of dollars,
caused a still greater buoyancy, and the
street operations wore continued to a late
hour. The sales of bank stocks were al
so large at a heavy advance. Missouri
G’s declined to 73 in consequence of the de
feat of the tax bill in the Legislature of
that State.
It is believed that an early resumption
of specie payments by the banks is inevi
Sterling exchange is advancing. Do

The Queens of France.—The Dublin
University Magazine, commenting upon
the lives of the royal and imperial wives
of Franco, states there are but thirteen
out of sixty-seven on whose memory'
there is no dark stain of sorrow and sin.
A cotemporary', in summing up the state
ment, says:
Of the others, eleven were divorced;
two died by the executioner ; nine died
very' young, seven were soon widowed;
three were exiled; three were bad in
different degrees of evil; the prisoners and
the broken hearted made up the remain
der. Twenty who were buried at St.
Denis, siuco the time of Charlemagne,
were denied the rest of the grave. Their
remains were dragged from the tomb, ex
posed to the insults of the revolutionary
populace, and then flung into a trench and
covered with quicklime.

caught in his wife’s room, at the N. York
Hotel, adds: And here I cannot omit to
mention a pun perpetrated on the occasion
by “mine host,” Cranston, one of the wit
tiest and cleverest of men. “What is all
this noiseabout Furniss and Mrs. Wood
man !” inquired an excited guest or tnc
landlord. “0, nothing of any conse
quence,” replied Cranston, scarcely mov
ing tiie risible muscles of his serio-comic
face, “only he was chased and she wasn’t,
that’s all.”
An Irish gentleman was recommended
to a bill broker for a discount. The bro

stated some difficulties- “It has,” ho
said, “a great many days to run.” “That’s

shortest days in the year.”
The Next Congkess.—The elections

pgr Listen, Ye Dyspeptics.—Go
andcloLikewise. Permanent Cure
—The Rev. James Hunnicutt, proprietor and
editor of tiiut excellent paper, the Christian
Banner, published at Fredericksburg, Va.,
in his editorial of June 5th, 1857, thus speaks
of his cure:
It will remembered by many of our readers,
that several years ago we stated in the edi
torial columns of the Christian Bantier^ that
Hampton’s Vegetable Tjnctuke had effected
a cure for Dyspepsia in our own case—that
we had labored long with this terrible dis
ease, and suffered most awfully, the pain and
melancholy which necessarily accompanies
this horrible enemy of man and man’s hap
piness. For a long time we lived in constant
fear that the fell monster would return.—
But, thank God, and thanks to Hampton’s
Tincture, the gloomy demon has not yet re
turned, and we begin to think he never will.
We now feel confident in saying that Hamp
ton’s Vegetable Tincture has made a radical
cure of Dyspepsia in our own case. We have
not taken a drop of it for the lust two years,
to the best of our recollection. We eat what
we please, and as much as we please and chew
tobacco to our heart’s content, and all is well.
We believe that twelve bottles, judiciously
taken, will cure nine cases out of every ten of
dyspeptics. We conscientiously recommend
it to all dyspeptics. The spring time and
summer it is most recommended, therefore,
as a philanthropist, we call attention to it.—
