During the sitting of the last 8th of January State Convention of Ohio the Democratic Editors present, (compris ing a goodly portion of those in the jtate,) ever ready to forward the great work of extending pure republican prin ciples, held a convention of their own, immediately on the adoption of the no ble issues presented in Col. Tod's ad-mirablo- letter, and the strong resolu tions of the Convention, to give addi tional impulse to the canvass. This .Editorial Convention appointed a com mittee of publication, to. collect iacls in relation to paper money,. chartered monopolies, Sec This committee, in pursuance of their duties, among other tilings, instructed their Chairman, to end a circular to prominent and lead . -ing men of the democratic, party, in all " parts of the Union, to ascertain the sen ; ;timents of democratic statesmen, who . had thought "long and honestly on the subject, and to concentrate those opin ' Jons in a form for circulation, to show .

J ' Sir:' I have the -honor to acknowl edge the receipt of your esteemed favor of the 29th ul time j covering series of resolutions of the late democratic con vention of the State of Ohio, against hanking and chartered monopolies, and in favor of a specie eurrency.'r 'J; : As chairman of the democratic cor responding committee, of -the State of Ohio, you request my opinion on these subjects; and you are pleased to sup pose they rmy have weight with your t'ellovv-citizens. I cannot flatter my self that any opinion of mine, would have, or could have,' any hfiuence in the great State of Ohio, where I am a total stranger. 'If it should be thought, however.-that, from the position-winch I occupy, as governor of a state that has rid itself of Banks, during, tnyi ad ministration, my opinions may have any 'the least influence in Ohio, they are readily and cheerfully given; and I re gret, only, that the press of official duty will not permit me, on this occasion, to state all the reasons upon which those, opinions are founded. .. ;x 'S V' - We, in the State of Illinois, are free from the evils of banking. Our people have put down banking at home; put we are afflicted. with the circulation of bank rags from abroad. And no State has afflicted us more, in thb way, than the State of Ohio., v. The banks,, under your new, system,' have flooded t the whole west with their trashy one, two, and three dollar notes ; Gold and Sil ver were plentiful, until within a few months pasU- The .-bunks of Ohio, in the mean time, have put out their shin plasters; and it is now-exceedingly diffi cult to get change, except in small notes. It is. made quite an argument here, in favor of banking at home, that we can not,, control- the' legislation of other states, ..That other states' will have banks, and that we must and ; will- take their paper; , But if your democracy is as true and genuine . as ours, you will sweep them all by the. .board. Other states will follow the glorious example of Illinois- and Ohio, and thus, this main pillar of the ragocracy willfall,even as the temple of Cagon ; 4 lwi -. j Our banks -in Illinois never did any, good for the people, even in their palm iest days, i Nor am I 'aware, that any person- made any money out of them, except such as were in the secret, about the time they were going to break. During ,. their . existence, they; I inflated and1 deranged s the, currency jsand ex changes; banished gold and silver; cre ated high prices at home, and thereby prevented the, profitable exportation of our produce . ahrrja(i eThey demoraU ised the community, by creating, a gen eral desire for sudden affluence: They promoted idleness and speculation; and discouraged , industry and enterprise. In a word, they promoted a general de. sire among men,to "live by their wits;" and were , the cause of many of them failing, for,want of stock.V, , We .were never so prosperous in Illinois, as we (jave been since the banks were dead; until we - were overrun. by the rag is sues of Indiana and Ohio. . . ; ,: I have not observed that the honest, laboring, industrious people need banks. Those who do want them, are gener ally those .who are cunning and saga cious in business; men who eek.to live by their "smartness!" Such are the men, generally, who own and control banks; and, of course,, they will con trol them to their own. advantage, and to the advantage of their class, with whom, it is natural, they should sym- fiathise niostr By a man who seeks to ive by his wits, I mean one who does nothing physically; one who adds noth ing to the knowledge or the production of the country; but who works "head work," and by that means, comes to the possession and enjoyment of the fruits of other men's labor. -" ' If it' were possible fpr a bank to be honest, and safe for the community at large, the circulation of bank notes of denominations of from' 20 to $50, might be "convenient for merchants. Buttles a" thing unheard-of, except in one instance, that a bank has been re stricted to the issue of large notes, in the first instance, that it did not finally succed In getting the privilege of issu ing small ones. Indeed, ope great ob jection to banks is; thafwhen once cre ated, they are too strong for the people, and for their legislatures. A bank can never be brought to judgment- fof de linquency. It is too powerful an offen der, to submit to punishment. And every attempt of the kind, has but ver ified jhe old Athenian definition of law"; which is, that law is a cob-web, to catch small'flies; but that the big ones all get thrdughit. '" ' ,' V No such powerful associations ought to exist under a republican government. lhe principle of ourgovernment is that all will.yoluntarily submit to the laws, except abandoned rogues. These can be coerced,' by the' ordinary forms of our courts. But associated wealth may, and does, trample the laws under foot with impunity. A bank charter is a most excellent' device to enable the moral, the orderly, and, in some instan ces, the members of churches, to swin dle, without incurring the odium of be ing branded as rogues. ' , ; , It has al ways appeared to me, that a people may choose what kind of a cur rency they .will have. ' If they prefer paper, .they. wni nave it; and specie will be banished. .Every country, in the long run, is obliged to be supplied with its due proportion of money, as compared with other countries. There is just so much money in the world, to be divided out, amongst all mankind, in' proportion to their exchangeable cash commodities in market., .Money is like" water. It will find its equilibri um, and unite itself to property all over the world.v We may come into the general division, if we choose, and take all in paper; o"c we may take part in paDer. and part in specie; or we may take our share all in specie, and put off the bank rags upon the unwise of other nations. Y ' ' If it were not for the banks and bank issues making money unnaturally abun dant, and thus creating exorbitant pri ces, we would never hear of a want of protection to our 'manufactures.- Give us' a specie ' currency, and bur manufacturers will undersell the world in the world's markets, both at home and abroad. Give us a specie curren cy, and our western farmers will need no abrogation ' of. the . corn laws in England. In despite of the Corn laws, they will accumulate their piles, stacks, ana cords of pork, beef, and grain, upon the shores of Europe,' until the agricul turists there will be overwhelmed,' ; But. thei main argument ' against a spepie currency is, ,lhat paper " is the most convenient; that specie-is heavy and inconvenient to ; carry. I do not know that I am qualified to answer this argument.' I , have never found any difficulty in carrying all the money I ever had a! one time,' when put into gold. And I db'declare, that I would like,' for one', to know how it would feel, to have, more goldlhart I could carry. There are hut few "such lucky follows; and I 'do not tjiiak'that the curVency:of the country should he annually con vulsed,' arid rendered hazardous, all the time' for Iheir 'convenience.,' " ' ' ' , Vpuare about to have a great con test, in Ohio, the progress of which will convulse, .the State; ; the' parties there, are to suryiya or perish -with the banks. The .issue, on.- your part, 'is no banks; and a specio currency. Your Ohirj banks are acting so badly, in issuing and circulating shinplaster notes, that I heartily wish, you success, I do not wish to interfere tfl the-domestic policy of a sister State; but the course of Ohio is afflicting this State, and the whole west. If your banks will not overrun us with small notes, we will let them alone. Let 'them keep1 their rags at home,, instead pf leading them to pro duoe speculators, to ; be put into circu lation all over the " country. .' A t this moment, the Ohio banks are a curse to the whole west. Some of our mer chants in this city, will make and win a bet, any day of the week, except Sun day, that they have received notes on thirty different banks in the course of the day. One bet of this kind has been won, upon forty.-' Thus it is all over the country. ' ' But, my dear sir, I very much doubt the issue of the present contest in your State. The banks have but too lately come into power. They yet have mo ney to lend, and favors to grant. In o little while, they will have lent all their means, and will begin to collect. Then .will come the day of- retribution. In the meantime, golden opinions will be theirs. : A goodly portion of the de mocracy, I fear, will- be wheedled and cajoled into their support. In our State, there are some of the democracy, who were very tender-footed whilst the banks had power. ' But now that they are dead, they are ready to kick and tomahawk the dead lions. I know some who absolutely belonged to the banks; and for whom the banks could have maintained an action of trover, or re plevin, in any court of justice during the days of bank power, who are now the fiercest in theirdenunciations. And when' we were about to provide for winding up "the dead monsters, by a prudent system.whicn secured the State stock, these gentlemen, to show their utter aversion to all hanks, would be satisfied with nothing short of right-out bank slaughter, by tomahawk and scalping-knife, in total disregard of all the public interests at stake, lhanlt God, there were but few such patriots. No'r'can I believe there are many fn Ohio. ' But such "as there afei' I fear will be found on the side of the banks as long as they have power; 'and will thus aid the defeat of the democracy in the coming contest. . You wiII,how ever, be sure of them when the banks break; and they "will 'even be better democrats than the old veterans'. Let such be marked now. Now is the time to mark every bank slave, . I have the honor to be, - Very respectfully, Your obedient ser'nt, THOMAS FORD. To S. ;Medart Esqr., , Chairman Ohio Democratic Corres ponding Committee.. : FACT TRUER THAN FICTION! ' .' '' " -Ah! Sir 4, . .. The happiness was brief "" And dearly purchased!" WhuV on a vist, some two years since; at a small town in Massachusetts, lying upon the .easterly coast of Cape f in order to drive away a tem porary fit of ennui, 1 begged my fishing rod, and wandered down to the bench, in search of a few perch, to vary an evening meal. The shore was shoal, and far as the eye could reach, there was an : uninterrupted line of . surge, which came rolling in with :a strong South westerly breeze from the sea, and all attempts to cast my line, with any satisfaction, proved futile. Loilingup my tackle, 1 sat down upon the frag ment of an old wreck, which was half buried in the sand, near by where 1 watched the waves, as they cast them selves, with their foamy crests upon the beach. - V ; , 1 had been seated but a few minutes, when the sound of footsteps diverted me from my reverie, and looking up, I discovered a man near me, some, forty tears of aee. His apmarance and dress was that of the plainest fisherman of that poor neighborhood, and as he ap proached, lie raised his. weather-beaten cap, and .very respectfully gave me "good day," . Struck with his courte ous manner, I. moved to him, and he seated himself upon the log at my side. -His mood seemed of a quiet, melan choly character and I soon concluded from his conversation,' that he had "seen better days." Having .something of the romantic in my. composition, alter some general allusions to my proposed port, and the scene around us, I ven tured to ; question the ' stranger but I thought he inclined te be evasive. To turn the current of the, conversation . I enquired about the neighborhood. He passed his browned hand oyer his fore neadf and pointing to a small dwelling in tho distance he said "You see. Sir. that small cottage at the crown of the ridge, yonder? .The historv f the occupant of that house, miry' interesfyotfi -1" haVef" Wen inti mate with its owner, for many years, and I known hia story. His name was JIurlbert. Upon the rightbeyond the garden gate you may. discover a little mound, surmounted by a marble slab. Beneath that sod, ret the re mains of Humbert's wife. : Ah,Sir; she was a noblerhearted woman and her society was' once courted by the proud and wealthy. V r 7 wore man twenty years since (it is a long while back, "Sir but 1 remember it as if it were but yesterday !)-up wards of t wen ty years .ago; the father of that man was suddenly called to his last account; and he left his son sole heir to a brilli ant fortune. He was a comely youth, and with the.large property which he so suddenly inherited, he had no diffi culty in choosing his society; he found companions, in plenty! At twenty- three, he married a lovely being; ana lor a year or more, he was happy blest with an abundance of the world's goods. Within that time his wife gave birlhto a daughter? But the young husband gave himself to the fascinations of gam ingand out. a lew snort years, aiier ward, he had, by degrees, been entirely "pigeoned'' of his fortune, and he. be came bankrupt. He had. lived extrav agantly he was overwhelmed '.with debts he could not pay; he was impris oned in! his his own native city; and from a long series of suffering, he was at last 'relieved, by escape from the scene of his activity. It was too much for his poor Mary she fell into a de cline; and though she lingered on, for years a settled disease attacked her, and her constitution was wrecked. He left his home; attended by his faith ful wife, and only' child and alter a- successipn of misfortunes, he found his way to this lonely region. All appeal to his former "friends" proved,, unavail ing; he was cast'ofF as a ruined gam- bier and spendttmtt. . v ,. 1 He possessed a proud spirit,! Sir; and that young man who, ten years before, was master of a splendid fortun'eyrwas glad to enter, a. fishing .vessel,, from, this very spot at a paltry stipend monthly, to support . his sick wifo . and darling child. But Heaven smiled upon hii efforts he became, an altered. man r and Fortune always favors, honest in dustry. He hired that little farm, yon der; and in course of time became its lawful owner.v There were happy times within those rude walls, Sir or rather I might say, there would, have been;. but his poor wife was failing rap idly. She was a tender blossom, Sir, and the rude blast.of adversity chilled her heart." Her early hopes had been crushed his Mary died!! The hus band buried her, beneath that mound. But that was many years ago, Sir!" 'And the child?" I enquired. "' "She fived and; lives, to bless the father, in his sorrow. She clings to him most fondly, and so like her moth er is she, Sir, that you would say ' but you shall see her, if you will. Come; it is nearly sunset ws will call at the cottage, if it please you 1 have been there often, Sir, and you will be sure to fin d a welcome." I readily .accepted the invitation,' 5nd we lwere toon at the" door. As we passed the little mound, Iread upon the tablet the simple inscription. "In Mem ory of Mart." - " 1 ". ' 'We entered the ' humble dwelling, where a cleanly table was already spread, and an air of real comfort seem ed to pervade the interior. ' I had not suspected the denouement.

"And you are" - ' ' "James Hdblbert, Sir!" ' Our evening meal was discussed in the- midst of pleasant converse, and 1 left that humble cottage with a more exalted opinion of humanity than I had hitherto entertained.
