you assented. That they might authorize such bank to rstablisb o ffices "ol discouut and deposite in the several Stales, .with the assent of the States. To this you replifd, "DoiCt name dis counts: they hare been the source. of the most a bominable corruptions, and are wholly unneces sary to enable the bank to discharge its duties to the country and the Government." Thrice, then, the President emphatically abjures a Bank of discount first in his veto, then spread before the country, and twice in his private Cabinet councils, and yet these Cabinet Ministers stick into Mr. Clay's original Bank bill the sixteenth fundamental section, authoriz ing the corporation to deal in exchanges, mere ly dropping the discount of notes, and, under this disguise, assuming to meet the President's objections, they pledge him to their friends in Congress to sanction the bill ! No man in either House of Congress ventur ed to deny that the charter sent in by the Cabi net established a Bank of discount a Bank which could embark not only i's own capitol, but the whole revenue of the Union, with which it was to be entrusted, in discounts, liable to all the objections ever taken to discounts in any form. It was indeed through the Exchange Committee, as it was called, that the most shock ing abuses of the late Bank of the United States were introduced. The loans to bribe members of Congress, editors, and others, were, for the most part, worked through this channel. The worst traffic, whether in politics in real estate or mercantile speculation, or usurious extortion, was managed through the exchange discounts. We are, however, relieved from pointing out the particulars in which this last Bank of dis count was obnoxious to all the President's ob jections, by the very able, sarcastic, sifting speech of Mr. Buchanan, in this day's paper, to which we refer the reader. The strong hand of the Senator from Pennsylvania t-ars the mask from the odious features of this Bank of discount for bills of exchange. Whether the President was duped to consent to this new scheme, violat ing all his principles by the assunnces of his Secretaries that it obviated all his objections, we have no means of knowing. It is certain, how ever, that they knew what his objections were, and that, in pretending to provide him with a plan liable to none of them, they furnished one! ... , . I i:,; , obnoxious to every constitutional, moral, poiiti-1 .! . : U.. cai exception, ever launi ui any time, ui uy any body, to the establishment of a Bn.k. If the President did net discover this when the pro position was first suggested, he did immediately , . r J .L. l after, and before he h id received the views of i J ' ' the Secretaries, which he asked to eulighten j him in making a final decision. Mr. Ewing ; says, in his published letter to the President: "You asked Mr. Webster and myself each lo prepare and present you. with an argument touch' ing the constitutionality of the bill ; and before those arguments could be prepired and read by you, you declared, as I heard and believe, lo gen tlemen, members of the House, that you would cut off your right hand rather than approve it. Af ter this new resolution was taken, you asked and earnestly urged the members of your Cabinet to postpone the bill; but you would neither give yourself, nor suffer them to give, any assurance of your future course, in case of such postpone ment." Mr. Bell fixes more precisely the moment when the President had his eyes open to their circumvention. He met the Pre-ident the next morning af ter the veto on the first Bank the Cabinet meeting, at which the substitute was suggested. Mr. Bell says the President then (that is, on the 17ih of August) "requested me to draw a brief statement of my views upon the subject, showing the practical advantages and necessity of such a fiscal institution as he had thought of proposing. Such information as I could hastily collect from the heads of the principal disburs ing bureaus of the D-partment. I handed to HIM ON THE EVENING OF THE SAME DAY, KNOWING THAT TIME WAS OF THE UTMOST IMPORTANCE IN THE STATE IN WHICH THE QUESTION THEN WAS. He RECEIVED THE STATEMENT I GAVE HIM WITH MANIFEST IN DIFFERENCE. AND ALARMED ME BY REMARK ING THAT HE BEGAN TO DOUBT WHETHER HE would give his assent (as I understood him) to any Bank." From Mr. Bell's showing, then, the Presi dent, the next day after he had vetoed the first Bank, speaking of the substitute recommended to him by his Cabinet, declared that he doubted "whether he could give his assent to any Bank;" and, according to Mr. Ewing. before he and Mr. Webster could prepare an argument on the plan proposed, the President said he "would cut off his right hand rather than approve it;" and, notwithstanding this change in the President's mind, fixed by Mr. Bell to have been as early as the 17th of Au gust, Mr. Sergeant brings into the House the Cabinet contrived charter for a Fiscal Corpora tion, on Friday the 20th of August 1 And to this measure, which was not fully prepared until three days after the President had declared his doubts about signing any bill, he is pledg ed to the Whigs to approve what was not yet eoncocted for him or submitted by Mr. Ser- OEANT ! Does not this simple narrative, drawn from the ex parte testimony of the ex-Secretaries, prove conclusively that from the first they had conspi red with Mr. Bott's to "head" him? Mr. Bell shows that he thought the Cabinet had sufficient eause to abandon the President before his course on the Bank had given them offence They then undertook to advise him, and, as all the world most see, counsel him to do that which wonld have disgraced bim, by setting his first veto, and all it solemn protestations, at nought. They-undertake to pledge him in advance to this course, while he was still in communication with them as to what should be his final reoolu- tion; and having, as they supposed gotten him fairly on the hip, they refuse to allow even a postponement of the measure to which they had committed him, unless, to use the language of Mr. Ewino, he would give "assurance" that he would sanction the measure at the next session, and not use the delay as a means of making "hostile movements." The submission thus de manded not being nnde, the malcontent Secre taries unite with the Whigs in Congress in press- . W- ... . 1 k.Uah ing the measure on tne i'residejh, huu, wuch he resists it with his veto, these gentlemen, who had previous cause for abandoning him, (which, however they have not divulged,) seize the occa sion to plunge him down the gulf prepared for him by themselves to denounce him in Cabinet anathemas to the public, they turn their backs upon him, in what they consider a prosit ate con dition. FROM THE NEW YORK HERALD. THE CASE OF MARY ROGERS. And the place of the Murder. The late investigations and discoveries in re lation to the murder of this unfortunate girl have settled two important points. First, the place where she was last seen alive ; secondly the place where she was murdered. The former place is the little wooden tavern close at the foot of Weehawken Hill, formerly known as "Mick Moore's House." This tavern, on a Sunday in fine weather, is visited by num beis of ladies and gentlemen from New York, who usually come therein parties of two and four; no lady ever coming without a gentleman to accompany her. At this house the visitors usually stay for half an hour, to rest and refresh themselves with wine, lemonade, cold cuts. &c, before they ascend the Weehiwken Hill, or stroll along the lower road towards Bull's Fer ry, or Hamilton's Monument, at the Dwelling Ground. Half way between the Elysian Fields and Nick Moore's House there is a small wooden shanty, on the mud bank, where liq ior is sold, and where almost every Sunday, crowds of row dies, armed with sticks, arrive in boats (which they can moor close up to the house,) drink, swear, fight, and s'lly forth towards the Wee hawken Hill frequently insulting and beating all they meet on their way, besides eating and drink ing wherever they can, and then, by reason of their numbers and their weapons, refusing to pay for any thing. In the a Her noon of the fatal Sundiy on which Mary Rogers was murdered, she was seen to ar- rive at Huboken, about 6 o clock, by the lrry noai. Auam .inf. stage unrr or .ur. van . , , , i t . t i i Tr ...cr.. v. o -". - recogn zed her as she left the boat, and mace a remark to that effect at the time. She was then in rnm-i.iiiv with s dirk comnlexioned voun? m nd. as they left the ferry, they took the 1 j 1 o ivau IU iirrinnili.il, Auaui, nit uii- . . . . .... e . . ver, also saw the body when found nt-ar the Sybil's C ive. and recogniz-d it at once so that there shoul-J seem lo be no mistake about this. On the s.imt- Sund iy afternoon the day of the murder Mrs. Lss, (a hnp, intelligent. good looking lady, about thirty years of age, and of German descent,) who now keeps the tavern formerly kept by Nick Moore, states that amng many others who came to her house, was a young lady about the age and exact appearance of Mary R gers, and dresseu precisely as Mary Rogers was said to have been dressed. This young lady reached her house about 4 o'clock, in company with a dark complexioned young man. Mrs. Loss siys that she was very affable and modest in her behavior. Mrs. Li. took sev eral glasses of liquor into the parlor, where the company (five or six ladies and as many gentle men) were sitting: Miss Rogers was sitting on the settee the young gentleman rose to hand her a glasi of liquor, when she said, "I'll take lemonade." Soon after this she took the arm of the young man, and walked out towards the hill, bowing to Mrs. L. as she went out. Mrs. L. was induced to notice her dress (a light, peculiar striped one) particularly, and observed to her eldest bey, "that's a very pretty young lady, and has got a dress on exact'y like that your aunt had, when she last came here before she died." This was the Jast that Mrs. Loss ever saw of the unfortunate Mary Rogers. And now, to be correct in the order of time, we may here state that on that Sunday afternoon, there was a much larger number of fire rowdier, butcher boys, soap-locks, and all sorts of riotous miscreants over Weehawken, ind almost all of them armed with slicks. A great many came in row boats to the rum hv le on the mud bank ; ar.d two boats in particular, (one with six and the other with nine desperadoes in them,) landed their contents at the little wharf on Mr. King's property, not far from L'idlow's place. These scoundels came up to the little shanty by the road side, next to Nick Moor's house, and there called for drink, seized all the cakes, &c, and ate them, refused to pay any thing, and threatened to beat every body that interfered with them. All these had clubs. They then went towards the hill, and remained prowling about till after dtrk, when the two boats in question-left in a great hurry. The poor girl, Mary Rogers, it is said by those who assert they saw her, went up the Wwekawken Hill ; strolled nearly a mile beyond the hotel on the top, in company with the young man already mentioned. The rain came on and she took shelter in a small house or tavern near the roadside. Here also a parcel of the rowdies came, drank, and were very insolent. Mary and her companion, detained by the rain, did not leave the house till near or after dark, when they descended the hill; and when near the foot of it another shower came on : it is believed they then took shelter under some bushes in the side of the hill, between the two roads ; and there it is also believed blh were murdered, and the poor girl violated. In confirmation of this, Mrs. Loss says, that she sent her little boy, Oscar. soon after dark, to drive a bull down the lower road to Ludlow's. Some tune after he left, she heard what sh calls a frightful screaming as of a young girl in great distress, partly choked, and calling for assistance, and sounded like "oh! oh 1 God 1" uttered in great agony. So loud, were the screams that her other son heard them down in the cellar. She thought the bull had tossed her boy, and rushed out in terror, calling nis name aown tne road to Ludiow s. As soon as she called out, there was a noise as of strug gling, & a stifled, suffering scream, and then all was still. She reached Ludlow's passing the very scene of the murder, found her. boy safe, and returned to the house. And as there had been several noisy fights that day, she thought no more of the screaming. Time passed on, until the 25th of last month. On that day her boys were out collecting sassa fras bark, and chanced to penetrate the small thicket between the two roads on the side of the hill where the murder was committed. Here there are three or four large stones, forming a kind of seat with back and . footstool to it. The boughs and briar bushes are twined thickly around it, and . there is not room scarcely to stand unnVht in it. In fact, it is a nlace fit for a such a murder, and one from which the unfor lunate girl could not have escaped without viola tion, iferer she was forced into it. On the up per stone lay a white garment. The little boy exclamed, "Halloo 1 here s somebody has le their shirt." The big boy picked it up, and found it was a woman's petticoat. On the second stone lay the identical silk scarf (all crumpled up, as it torn off forcibly) which was worn by the young lady who was at Mrs. Los s house and which has been identified as Mary Rogers scarf. The petticoat had been darned in a hurry and that has been identified. In a little hollow between the seat stone and a trunk of a srral tree, lay Mary Rogers' parasol and pocket handkerchief, with her name. A little furthe off lay her gloves turned inside out, as if they had been forcibly drawn from her hands in a hurry. And on one of the brier bushes, hung two pieces of her dress, which had evidently been torn oot as she was dragged through thi horrid place, one piece of the dress was so doubled as to have u thorn three times through it. The place around was stamped about, and the branches were broken and roots bruised and mashed, all betokening that it had been the scene of a very violent struggle. The marks of high-heeled boot were very plain ;and it appear ed from the position of the articles, as if the un fortunate" girl had been placed upon the middle broad stone, her head held forcibly back, and then and there horribly violated by several row dies, and uhimately strangled. The spot is not far from the river the access to the water easy and the rails between it and the river were all found taken down, as if the bodies of Mary Rogers and the young man had both been carri ed thence from the scene of the murder. HORRIBLE MURDER. Our readers will remember a paragraph wnicn appeared in most or tne city papers last week, announcing the sudden and mysterious disappearance at Mr. Samuel Adams, printer, ui no. oj uroiu street, u nas since ni-en as e m -,-v n .u - r. l certained that he was murdered by J. C. Colt, in the granite building un the corner of Chambers street and Broadway. Mr. Adams left his office about noon on Fri day, the 17th instant, far the purpose of collect ing some dtbts which were due him in different parts of the city. He first called at a bookseller in Canal street, but not finding him at home, re turned as far a Ghamoers street, and went into the room of Mr. J. C. Colt, a book-keeper, who owed him about two hundred dollars on account of a work on book-keeping, which, some time since, he had published for Colt. Whether hi got into a dispute with Colt, because of a refusal to pay his claim, or whether he was attacked by . i i . . . Coii iii coiu niooo, is not known : but it is certain that a scuffle took place between them, in which Ad-tms was killed. The discovery of the murder was madethro' the instrumentality of Mr. Wheeler, a teacher of penmanship, occupying a room adjoining that of Oolt, About four o clock P. Al. Mr. Wheeler thought he heard an unusual noise in Colt's room and was induced to go to the door and rap. oi receiving an answer, he looked through tht key hole, and saw two hats standing upon a tx ble, and Colt kneeling upon the floor, as if scrub bing it. After wailing a little while, Mr. Wheeler peeped into the key hole again, and saw Colt still engaged in the same operation. This excited his suspicions, and he caused a person to watch at tne door all nignt. In the morninff this ner son saw Coll take a box, about fur feet long and nw iiiy, uuwii cue amirs. i ne dox was directed to somebody in St. Louis, via New Or leans. Not longafter, Mr. Wheeler going into Colt's room while he was out. discovered that his look ing-glass was shattered, and that the floor had the appearance of having been recently washed ana scraped. Here and there upon the walls and floor, there were large- spots of ink, which seemed lo have been recently put. A hatchet was also found, with the hano'le scraped and cuvereu over wun inic.

In the course of this search, thev found a car: man who testified to have carried a box from the corner of Chambers street and Broadway, on board the sh:p K-ilanurno. The ship was searched, and the box found, containing the body of Mr. Adiims, wrapped up in sail cloth, and sprinkled with salt and chloride of lime. Colt is a young man. apparently about twenty- seven years of a?e. of fine nrsnnal nnr.unrn1 and respectably connected. For several years past he has taught book-keeping in various At lantic and western cities. Doings i?i Texas.-More Wholesale Lynch- tnjsr.

The procession of the Orphan Boys on Satur spectacle; imposing from the contemnlatinn nf J i"vwn i.ioiiuiv an ii nus snr .tnimn the wrongs they have suffered at the hands of me wicicea robbers of their inheritance. The procession formed in the State House Yard, between the houis of two and three o'clock. The boys were of all ages from twelve to six years, and were many hundreds in num- oer. jacn lad wore crape on one of his arms, as a mourning token in memory of Girard and' the loss to the poor orphans of their munificent bequest. After the procession had organized, it marched through the principal streets to low and mournful music, which called up melan choly associations, and added interest to the pa geant. The banners for the most part were .plain white muslin, trimmed with black, and lettered -with important and emphatic sentences such as "Freemen come to the rescue of the Orphan, and punish the spoilers of their inheritance." "The Girard Orphan Boys will rememher those who robbed them to fatten upon the spoils." "Banish from our city the rulers who have been guilty of defrauding the Orphan Boy." "Our benefactor cries aloud from his grave for vengeance upon the violaters of his trust." "We mourn for the loss of the bequest of Steph en Girard, but much more that of mental im provement." A beautiful blue silk banner, red and black ribbon, and wreathed with roses, contained the following lettering, wrought by the needle of a benevolent and accomplished lady of the North ern Liberties : 7th Ward, N. L. we Lament our loss." Another beautiful banner, contained a repre sentation of house, and an oak tree oversha dowing it, and the motto, "Great oaks from lit tle acorns grow." In the procession, we noticed a very hand some model of the "plain and substantial" college intended by Girard for the orphans. It was an object of much curiosity, and ws borne upon the shoulders of four fmall boys, who were relieved at intervals by four others, who walked by their side. The model was let tered " The college as intended by Girard, not the Grecian Temple of the plunderers." The procession was directed by a very in telligent looking lad, mounted on a black poney with a baton in his h ind, and a badge of "Mar shall" in gold letters on his hat. Many of the boys in the procession plainly spoke by their appearance their wants of a father for ragged and patched garments, and feet with out shoes and stockings "have tongues of most miraculous organ," they spoke a tale of poverty ignorance and misery, and plainly revealed how much they had been wronged by the high born villians who have squandered away and feasted and rioted upon their most sacred inheri tance. From the National Intelligencer. OFFICIAL. To the Hon. S. R. Hobbie, Acting Postmastcr-GeneraL Sir Information having been received in a form entitled to attention, that the Postmaster at Pennsylvania, and J Ohio, have so far violat ed the obligations which they impliedly assumed on taking office under my Administration, of ab staining from any active partisanship, or in any way connecting the othces with party politics, or usin; them for party purposes, 1 have lo request that inquiries shall be instantly instituted into their conduct, and that if the charges against them be found to be true, thev be immediately turned out of othce, and citizens appointed in their places who will otherwise conduct themselves. The Post Office Department, in all its operations, should be conducted for the single purpose of ac complishing the important objects for which it was established. It should in an especial manner, so far as is practicable, be disconnected from party politics. It was established for specified purposes of equal importance to every citizen To cbnvert u into an engine of party, to be used tor party pur poses, is to make it a fruitful source of the most a larming evils. Ramified as it is, and extended to every neighborhood, the purity of its administra tion, and necessarily of its agents, should be par ticularly guarded. For a Deputy Postmaster to use his franking privilege (a privilege bestowed upon him for the sole purpose of exonerating bim from oppressive charges in the necessary correspond ence oF hisolnce) in scattering over the country pamphlets, newspapers, and proceedings to influ ence elections, is lo outrage ali propriety, and must not for a day be tolerated. Let this be left to the politicians. I should be happy if one or two exam ples shall be found sufficient to correct an evil which has so extensively prevailed. 1 will take this occasion, also, to add tor your in struction, that the appointment to, and continuance in the office of postmaster of fcnv one editinsr a po litical newspaper is in the highest degree objection-j able. It involves most of ihe consequences above stated, introduces politics into the post office, di minishes revenue, and confers privileges on one editor which all cannot enjoy. In a word, it is my fixed purpose, as far as in me lies, to separate the Post Othce Department from politics, and bring a bout that reform which the country has so loudly demanded. September 2Sth, 1311. JOHN TYLER. Correspondence of the New Era. Utica, Sept. 25, 1841. THE McLEOD CASE AS IT STANDS. Dear Sir: You can hardly imagine the deep excitement which prevails here in reference to the anticipated trial of McLeod. I should not be surprised if before the matter is got along with there should be some disgraceful affair en acted here, which will redound only to the dis credit of our country. The course pursued by those who claim to be of the peace party seems to'be directed to such a result and none other. These good people set themselves up in every nook and corner, from which they proclaim Mc- eod s innocence. They say "that, although he did boast that he was with the party who dest royed the steamer Caroline, and murdered a number of our peaceable citizens, yet he was not there. This creates an idea in the minds of those who entertain a notion of McLeod's guilt, that there is a connivance on foot to effect his acquittal by fraud and they threaten to give him lynch law. 1 he numbers of your paper. and other journals, in which have been publish ed articles relating to the trial, have been care- ully suppressed from the files in the 'Younjr Men's Reading Room," while such articles as the N. Y. Courier and Enquirer affords have been allowed lo keep their places. This has offended many of the young men of the place, and tends much to increase the excitement. It is made evident that there is a disposition abroad fo affect the trial b' an improper influence not to convict McLeod but to acquit him, and the continued accusations made against the Cana dian refugees, is in itself, an incitement to the performance of those acts which the peace men profess to be exerting themselves to prevent. This state of things gives currency to a thou sand idle reports, which keeps the timid in a continued state of alarm. The report has been in circulation for a long time that the patriots were concerting a plan to assassinate McLeod before his trial. This story I think has no foun dation in fact and has been put in circulation for no other purpose than to harrass the mind of McLeod, of whom it is said, by those who have seen him, "that he has been treated with more indulgence than his case entitled him to ;" and hence the wags have resolved to make him un easy. List evening a report was in circulation that the mayor of the city had discovered a nlot for blowing up the Court House during the trial, and had seized twenty-one kegs of powder which had been procured for the purpose; and it was given in another story that the powder house near the Mohawk had been broken open and a large quantity of the powder taken away, which the fearful imagined was to be put under the Court House to blow it up. But these stories, like many others which have been and which will be put afloat, I apprehend to be sheer fabrications. From all this you will perceive there is but little reason to fear a storm, though a cloud does hang over Utica which may break into one. Should the "Governor's troops" be brought down here with McLeod, to guard his person during the trial, I should not be disappointed if it lead to a most disgraceful disturbance, as an armed guard would seem so much like a British ar rangement the people would regard it as an in sult, nnd would not brook it. But let the truly peaceful men act as the conservators of the peace, and let the armed guard be dispensed with, and let the properly constituted officers of the court do their duty in the ordinary manner, and there will be no disturbance. Such is my opinion. lam sir. With his consideration, Your ob't servant, JOHN LONGHORNE. THE STANDARD. Wednesday, October 6, 1841. MORE OF THE CABINET. We give the Letter of Mr. Beil, and another from Mr. Webster, in to-day's Standard. We al so copy some remarks from The Globe, on the late foul conspiracy of the President's Cabinet, to which we invite attention. The letter of Mr. Bell carries with it internal evidence of misrepresentation. He says that Mr. Tyler asked two gentlemen of the Cabinet to fur nish him with their views and arguments in favor of a Fiscal Agent. If Mr. Tyler had made up his mind to sign the bill, as this "whig" trio would have us believe, the "time for argument had gone by ;" and it would surely have been a very silly move to present a man with reasons for doing what he had already determined to do. It is true Mr. Bell says the President wanted them for fu ture occasions ; but this is a mere inference. He does not say the President said so. Some of the "whigs" will pretend to be shocked al the imputations against Ewing, Badger and Bell, of having conspired to blast the reputation of the President, by political misrepresentations. But let us see how such a course is in keeping with the precious conduct of these gentlemen. We ask the people, then, who heard ihem and know what they said, whether they did not pre tend, in their electioneering speeches, that they did not want a National Bank if they so pretend ed, they knew they were stating a falsehood. Did they accuse Mr. Van Bur en of wanting to raise a standing army ? They knew this' to be untrue. Did they speak of extravagance in the President's furniture? They knew this to be false. And the Ilooe case extravagance of the Government the Census the union of purse and the sword through the Sub-Treasury all of them, they knew to be vile cheats and humbugs, as presented to the peo ple by them. They also knew that they were ma king political misrepresentations in stating that Harrison was a log-cahin Farmer that they de sired retrenchment and reform, and no proscription for opinion's sake. If Messrs. Ewing, Badger and Bell could sane tion these vile impositions, sustained by the gross est immoralities, are they too good, do the people think, to misrepresent the President? If they could pursue so shameful a course to deteat one of the most pure and upright statesmen of the age, Mr. Van Bur en, and elect a man they expected to be a mere tool to work out their iniquitous plans, it requires no great stretch of conscience for ihem to conspire against Mr. Tyler, whose honesty has disappointed their ambition. "WHIG" VERACITY. The disclosures made by the late Secretaries have brought to light a little matter which shows eiiher the value of their veracity or that of Mr. Clay's. Mr. Ewing, and Mr. Bell say that Messrs. Ber rien $ Sargeant consulted with President Tyler, on "behalf of the "whigs" of the two Houses, to endeavor to strike out some measure which should be generally acceptable." When the Bank bill came up in the Senate, Mr. Clay solemnly denied that any member of his party in the Senate had ev er waited on the President to ascertain his views in regard to the new Bank bill, which had been intro duced after the veto of the first. Mr. Berrien is of Mr. CI ay s parly and of the Senate ; so either Clay or Ewing f Bell have asserted a falsehood. The whiggery may take the horn of the dilemma that suits then best. Mr. Cavalso. on the debate on the first veto, professed great horror at any con sultations with the President, by members. Here, again, the whiggery may eulogize his sincerity and political honesty u they think proper. None who love truth and candor can do it. JXI-The Office of the Receiver of Public Mon eys, in Chicago, Illinois, was entered on Saturday or Sunday night, (the 11th or 12th ult.) the Sub- Treasury safe opened by false keys, and the fol lowing amounts stolen, viz : $1,838 in gold, 300 in silver, $400 in Treasury Notes, $100 Military Land Script, and one $50 note, Bank of North Ad ams, Mass. The Receiver offers a reward of $ 1000 for the recovery of the money, and $500 for the rob ber. JCf- The stock of the U. States Bank of Penn sylvania was down to $5 per share of $100, at the last advices. And yet the "whigs" are desirous to establish another Bank of the sort, that the country may again witness it3 rottenness, its bribery, and the shameful yillany of its managers and the ruin of thousands of families, who placed their all in the power of the. Fiscal Corporation ! ti"In Tennessee, the hn Democracy is 9,000. CLAY CLUBS. The Federalists are forming Clay Clubs, and some of them have adopted the motto, "For our country and Henry Clay It should be niorl properly "For a National Bank and Henry Clay We have as yet heard of no particular hunibu Some recommend a pack of cards for a device 0 the "whig" standards. They will be at no loss for devices, however, though so many have Jatej failed them. What share of a "generous cortf dence" they may expect, after having so gros. abused the public confidence, none but a bard-cid ite can tell. We suppose Clay, who is the candid! ate for the next Presidency will make some devel" opments to "meet the public eye j" but if he mata known all his designs he will appear in quite a new character. It is now too late to keep the National Bank ''under the rose j" they will, therefore, come out boldly for a National institution of the sort at tempting to soften its character by calling it a Fij. cal Agency just the same as they have done by cloaking the hydra of Federalism under the name of "whig." We think the Clay clubs and whi. gery will be "no go." The people know their be trayers, and the parties must contest upon the is sue of Bank or no Bank and severally take their stands as Republicans and Federalists; and this is the true character of the parties. DEFINING A POSITION. The following from the Boston Post, seems to define the position of the "whig" party to the life; "A prominent democrat, in Washington, last week asked an equally prominent whiff, in a on,l humored way "How are you getting alon now-n. dayfs?" "I can hardly tell," said the whig, "for the Lord has got our President, the locos our Vice President, and I believe ihe devil will have the rest of us!" This "whig" is to be respected for his candor, and the open confession, which is a mark of an in genuous mind. It is a pity, with these qualities, that he should continue in the coon-skin and hard cider "delusion" parly. John S. Moring has removed from Bain bridge, Georgia, without notice to us or settling his dues for the Standard, $7 75, and 25 Cents post age. We hope thi notice will meet his eye, and that he will enable us, by remitting ftS, to stare that there was no criminal intention in his neglect. FROM THE FRONTIER. It is slated that British volunteer troops, station ed at Missisque Bay, on a river which rises in Can ada and unites with lake Champlain, and not far from St. Albans, Vermont, are in the habit of dis turbing the quiet of the frontier neighborhood. On Sunday, the 19th of last month, twelve or more of these volunteers crossed the line, invaded the American territory, and forcibly seized and carried into Canada one Col. Grogan. They came by night, and by stealth, two miles into the township of Alburgh, and bound him and hurried him away to Montreal. Col. Grogan formerly resided in Canada, and took part with the patriots. His pro perty was destroyed and himself driven from his home into the United States. It is reported that he has retaliated and burned buildings on the Bri tish side of the line. Be this true or not, to seize a man within the territory of the United State;, and without trial or examination to force himolfto a foreign jail, is an outrage to which our Govern ment cannot submit without disgrace. On the other hand it appears that many persons on the frontier, near Buffalo, are endeavoring to embioil the two countries in war, by depreda tions on the Canadians. An attempt was made to blowup two British steamboats, lying at anchor en the Niagara river, near Chippewa. It is said that an armed force, consisting of several thou sand men, has been for some time organized in the State of New York, for the purpose of co-operating with the Canadian Patriots in another attempt at revolt. The editor of the Troy Whig says: " We are informed, on good authority, that the organization of these men within our territory wa never so complete as it is at present ; and thai it comprises a body of fifty or sixty thousand per sons, who are ready to march at a moment's warn ing across the frontier, and lo carry fire and sword into the heart of the Canadas. W hcther the Uni- ttA Rtatp Hnvirnmnt is nwnrp nf ihis iilnrmin? state of affairs, we are unable lo say ; or whether General Scott in his recent visit to Buffalo and De troit succeeded in discovering what was actually going on in tne vicinity oi inose piaces. ii is vi i.t l ry evident, however, to observing men who reside near the Canadian frontier, that unusual prepara tions have been making for some time past among those who are friendly to the cause of ihe patriots, and the most disastrous consequences are appre hended unless this conspiracy against a nation with whom we are at peace, is broken up in time. The recent robberies of powder ai.d arms were doubtless committed by persons in the employment of the conspirators, and similar seizures will be at tempted by them hereafter, from time to time." There is no doubt a large number of people on both sides of the line, anxious to commence hostil ities. Our citizens were justly incensed at the at tack on the Caroline, and the cold-blooded murder then committed by British subjects. But we fear there are others, prompted by the love of n.iscbief and the hope of plunder, who will bring us into in extricable difficulties with the British Governnie"'- The Proclamation of the President, which we pub- Ibh to-day, indicates a state of things alarmin; to the peace of the two nations. d" Congestive fever prevails to an alarming extent on the coast, between Bayou Sara and Ke" Orleans. Ed The Greensboro' Patriot, speaking of t Maine election, calls Gov. Fairfield the ' loco-foW abolitionist." Does not the editor know that he deceiving his readers, and that Gov. Fairfield J' no abolitionist? The abolition strength in Maine is on the "whig" side. Mr. Thomas was beaten in one of the Districts, at a former election, because he voted for Alherton's Resolutions, and a "whig abolitionist (Mr. Eaton) elected in his place. VV e do not recollect whether Kent, the defeated "whig candidate, is an abolitionist or no't ; but think it very likely, as the "whigs" always falsely charge their own sins to their opponents. d The "whig" papers are now coming out tc favor of a National Bank, "with proper checks and modifications," when they know very well that ro checks or modifications can have any influence over such an institution. In Alabama, the change in favor of the De' mocracy is 6,000.
