FOSTER k LEWIS, iMiniiuni EDITORS. For the Southern Banner Messrs. Editors: There appeared in the Gazette of this morning a communication 'ol so peculiar Holly Springs Mis. AwjJ 13. rjQ3 By reference to another column, it will be seen that the bill for charte ring a Na tional Bank, has passed the Senate. There is no doubt about its being speedily passed by the House and probably as little that it will receive the signature of the President. The Bankrupt bill has also passed the Sen ate, and will, no doubt, pass the House, and become a law. This, we view, as decidedly the most important measure of the day; and its passage, will clothe the present Congress with never to be forgotten honors. .,rt h nai l. A law of Louisiana prevents Hon.

Curtis, to-day, (where it should have been long ago,) in the regularly nomited tick et as a candidate for State Treasurer. It i said in the Jackson papers, that Mr. Craw ley has withdrawn. But that is of little con sequence. The Doctor seems to be getting all the votes, (both whigs and democrats here,) and as he makes a firstrate officer, we presume we might all just as well let hi n have them without making a fus about it. We learn from the Clerkof the Probate Court for th'i3 county, that there have taken p ace since the organization of the County (5 years)five hundred marriages, or 100 per annum.

Well, Col., says the librarian, I have been to the two offices in this place to see upon what terms they would print this catalogue of books; the Southron proposes to print it for $ 100, the True Issue for 8 120. Now Col. says he, as you belong to the party, I want you to have the job; and in order to keep me out of a scrape, as I am bound to give it to the lowest bidder, you must underbid them.

I fec assured, from my knowledge of Mr Foster, that he will not so far forget his dignity as to give the remarks of Mr. P. even a passing notice and that tne only sen timent, which those remarks can excite in his bosom, will be that of profound pity for their author. So far as the character of Mr Foster in this community is concerned, 1 do not doubt that he may safely permit the spleen of Mr Parish to exhaust itself unno ticed. But the article of Mr Parish will be neruscd bv others than members of this com munitv; a'nd, to guard the minds of strangers ncainst the erroneous impressions wnicn 1 O. ... . 11 mitrht nn?sihlv Droduce. 1 wish to be allowed the u e of & Jittlc ol your valuable spare wish it to be distinctly understood, that to what I om about to sav, Mr Foster is not re sponsible. This communication is prepared without his knowledge, aid. or procurement. In his publication Mr Parish obviously con veys the idea that there IS at present a Fe- malelnslitute in Holly Springs, otherwise he would not asuredlv, have made an attack wanton, unprovoked, and unjustifiable upon Mr Foster, on the ground of the existence of such an Institute. I would, therefore, re spectfully, and in particular, imform Mr. C. Parish, "Principal of the Femile Institute, Holly Spj'ings" that there is notnow ajFe male Institute in HollySprings.andhas not been for a year and a half past, and further more, and more particularly that there never was one. If Mr Parish will turn to the ses sion acts of 1839, page 202, he may there learn the name of the institution of which he is the Principaf!' Its corporate name the onlu name it can legitimate! v have, is "The HoUv Springs Female Academy.' If the Legislature has ever authorized Mr Parish to change its name, I have yet to learn that fact. By what authority does Mr Parish pre sume to change a corporate name? His charge against Mr Foster, of having taken the name" of his Institute, does certainly exceed, in downright cool impudence, any other example on record.

He irravelv concludes, because Mr Foster has proposed to open a school for young ladies, and adopted a name which Mr larish, ol all other living men, is estopped from questioning, that the latter centleman 'obviously conveys the idea that there is no other school for young ladies, and that he in tends to gain possession of the Academy.
