To the polite attention of an esteem ed friend we are indebted for the fol lowing slip from the Mississippian uie lout uiM., uy wiucn we are placed m possession of some of the report on jl.- TT Tl. IF 1 xiiu uuioiA xaiiK. naa we space, we should not comment Tupon the course pursued by the directory of the 'institu tion as laid down in the following state ment from the report. The report of the Committee nppoin- icu iu uianime mis institution presents some most astounding tacts. The to tal amount of the liabilities of the Direc tory is One Million, Fifty-eight Thou sand, Eight Hundred and" Seventy-two Dollars. They have obtained as draw ers and acceptors, Four Hundred and Forty Thousand, Seven Hundred and Four Dollars. Thus the Directory have borrowed about One Twelfth of the whole capital of the bank, an 1 are liable m every capacity tor more than One Fifth of the entire capital of the bank. i ne total liability ol the . President of the bank, for his own liabilities and that of his Commission House, is Two Hun dred and Twelve Thousand, Three Hundred and seventy-eight dollars. The liabilities of J. B.' Morgan, another airector, is eighty thousand, nine hun- bonds already issued and not sold, shall be recalled and canceled, and those not issued shall be witheld. A wise and sal utary suggestion. ; " Such is now the fate of this great re lief bank. It maybe set down as utter ly insolvent, and the bonds a dead loss to the State. It is certain that the bank is not now nor never can be able to af ford anv further facilities to the State.- Its credit, character and resources are alike destroyed, unless enemetic meas ures are taken, the State will secure no thing from tin present assets of the bank such as they are. The sooner the bank is put in liquidation the more the Stale will save from the wreck; hut if a settlement of its affairs is delayed, the State will be compelled to pay every dol lar of the five million bonds now sold. In this state of things, it would not only be folly but wickedness to negotiate any more bonds for that . bank. " It is fast trending in the foot-steps of its illustri ous predecessor, the great Brandon. In deed, it may be safe!yaid, that, when the Brandon Bank had arrived at the same age of the Union Bank its affairs were in a better condition than the lat ter institution is at present. The sreu- eral policy of the two institutions has been the same. We do trust that the Legislature will not permit the present uueuiory vi me oann to lartner squan der us resources, but : that t hey wi place its affairs in new hand?. ' . For the Central Register.

If there be an estate or years in land, upon a condition in law or in deed, and that condition be broken, the law silently returns to the rm-er- iorler his title, without any suit or cla mor on his part, either in or out of court.

Will the people pay this tax? "Will the whole people of Mississippi pay a debt of two million of dollars, which a few reckless gambling speculitors, about Natchez, have squandered?., No man in his senses, .uuius iur a moment upon t io ability of either the Planters' Bank, or the Missis sippi lvau Koad Company, (to whom the State stock-was last winter transferred,) men is the debt to be liouidated? All must admit that the only mode left, is to resort to direct taxation. This subiert The policy has been such as to imposeupon those who'never have ueen ixmeutted m the slightest decree, the burthen of paying a heavy tax to iKjuidate a debt contracted bv the State, and squandered away by a "few indivi duals.
