From the Cincinnati Enquirer. PAPER IjJFLA'nOiYrTIIE REMEDY, The New York News gives a table of Bulk circulation in a majority of tho Suites, ami ays the tondency to incroas3 is very appi- rent in aU the banks of that sqclioti of iho country, and is equally bo in New England, New York, and Pennsylvania. U the latter State there is already notices made public that a renewal of $J,0l),00U ot capital ot old charters will bo applied for at the noxi session of the Legislature. In Missachu etls the return showed a higher statu of the circulation than ever before. In Mew York the nett circulation is as liiuh as ever before We find the piper currency of the Eistern, Western, and middle Slates not only as large as in 1839, but rapidly increasing, and the fate of money has baen lower in the mirkel for the last three years than ever before in this country for the sum length ot tim?.- They are all indications 'of the fact that the currency, as compared with other nations, is actually redundant, and nothing but unto ward political events has hitherto 'prevented the natural consequences of sncli a state'ol things, viz: a r'si in prices tml a etmse'iiieiit export of the precious mutiila.

Tin y leave the question - of. war precisely where il has stood for so tmany weeks past. It is evident, that Mexi . co, up to our latest dates, hesitates to declare war. AO one cau predict, however, wnat po licy may be adopted undjr the swav of fe verish excitement. The proposition for a loan of $15,000,000 had not, at. that date, been adopted by the Congress ot Mexico, and its passage was still somewhat doubtful, '.though probable. s , .'. There seems but one imminent cause for apprehending war. The people of the Uui ted States are now solemnly bound to defend the soil and Dcoola of Texas. The govern ment of the Jnited States is conscious of, I its duty, and will act upon that conscious- ness. iThe Mexicans have been conccntra , ting their forces west of the Rio Graiide, c with the apparent purpose ot miking a sud rden inroad into Texas. Were they to find , the frontiers defenceless, they would be en r coutaged to make an irruption. Such an in , vasiou at this time, after the action of the . Texian Congress and Convention, would be war on the United States. The best way to 'preserve peace, is, if possible, to prevent ' such an inroad, by being prepared for it. The concentration of the United States ' forces iu Texas, and in the Gulf," fir from being a measure calculated to prrtvoke hos '. tilitics, is a msasure most likely to prevent '. them. The Mexicans, who h ive hesitated '. to declare war, only from fear of consequen- . ces. will probably likewise hesitate, about in- '.. fading Texas, if they find thomslvcs with- out the hope ot even temporary success. . 1 Indiana, Wheeling, and other foreign paper - apnrrvi to live and revel vet.

' Maj. W. B. Lrwh. Til's inlividml, as most of our readers know, has held a lucra tive office at Washington, third Auditor of Ihe Treasury, for sixteen years. A tew months since President Polk, firr satisfactory reasons nnt no botior reason would be re quired than the f ict that he had held the of fice so long displayed him, and gave the pi tee to another. Mortified at his dism'ss al, he affected to believe a s'lly story, origin ated by some letter-writer hard run (yr poli tical goss:p, that it had been brought about by his f imily connexion with the French minister. On this flimsy pretext, he indited a discourteous note addressed " Jas. K. Polk, Esq.", demanding to know if that was ihe cause of his removal, accompanied with a declaration that he woulJ repiir to Tonnes seo and take nnas ires for the "vindication of his character." Mr. Polk very properly e fused to answer his billets, and left him to vindicate his character in his own way. ' Lewie had lon; enjoyed tho generous confi dence and .friendship of General Jackson, and was in confidential; private intercourse with him up to the time of It's death. The old hero explicitly declared, but a few days before h:s death, that In could not cunsiire Mr. Polk for his removal; and -defeated in his effort to arouse the sympathy of Gen. Jackson, lte Iras resorted to the pitiful alter native of altempt'n to injure the President, and the democratic pity, by tho publication of private letters address id to' him by the! old General,: in wh ch lie sp3aks ot ttio3o who were then their mutual friends, in the terms of confidential private intercourse Tliese letters relite to the sale and transfer of-the Globe" office, and do not in the least 'affect or refer to his removal or his"cha racier."

Tiie following let ter was written a little more than two years ago, and sinco then a revolution lias tal i place in the political character of the House of Representatives, of ihe U. 8.

A portion of the following predictions have been verified in an incredibly short space of time. and the approaching session of corfgfesf will not conclude before more material approximations rill be made to carry out the truly Western policy described by Mr. Benton. To those who appreciate this great man'a character and ability, this evidence of his close observation of the tenden cies of the popular mind will, we anticipate, be of considerable Interest. And we may here remark that if public men are eatimated according to true worth, Thomas H. Benton, the great western statesmen, will yet receive th highest testimony of public confidence.
