tTX(Suspcns(on. The Banks in Philadel
phia nnd Baltimore having suspended specie
payments, ricarly nil the" Banks south aiid west
have been compelled to follow suit. But we
believe all the Banks in New York and New
England, with the exception of some of the
Rhode Island Banks, continue to redeem theii
notes In specie. The Providence Banks owing
large sums to the Banks of Philadelphia and
Baltimore, could not safely continue specie
payments, nftcr the banks in these .cities had
suspended. The best spirit is manifested, as
yet, by the Banks of New York and Boston.
They arc determined not to suspend, unless it
should become absolutely necessary for their
safety. When the United States Bank sus
pended, wo feared we were on the eve of anoth
er universal suspension. But every day brings
us evidence of the determination and ability of
the Banks in New York and Boston to stem
At a meeting of delegates from the Boston
Banks, recently holden in that city, the follow
ing resolution was unanimously adopted :
Uesohed, That ufternn interchange of opin
ions and a statement of facts in regard to the
present condition of the Boston Banks, vc arc
fully satisfied that they are in a sound condi
tion, and in the possession of an unusual amount
of specie; and that without the occurrence of
some unanticipated event, have the utmost con
fidence in being able to maintain specie pay
ments, and at the same time continue, or even
moderately increase their present line of dis
iWete York money mailers. We copy from
the N. Y. Commercial the following intelli
gence respecting the condition of mercantile
affairs in that city, It is gratifying to learn that
there is a prospect of arrangements, which will
preclude the necessity of shipping to great
Britain larse amounts of snceie:
"We Understand that the-accredited agent of
Uaringnnd Brothers, now in this city, has of
fered our banks the credit of that house to the
amount of one million, If needed, as a fund to
draw upon so as to obviate the possible neces
sity of shipping specie. It is believed, howev
er, that the shipments of grain and flour will
be to an extent amply sufficient to cover all the
exchange required. "It affords us pleasure, also,
to be able to state that several of our banks arc
drnwimron Encland. Amone- tin m air llie
Bank of America, and thcBank of the State of
The New York Express says, "specie con
tmues to arrive in this city every day. The
Victoria, from Honduras, yesterday, brought
seven boxes, the amount we are unable to state.
JQ- Mr Dallas has left the country of St.
Petersburg, and returned home in the Havre
packet. A meeting of his friends has been
called in Philadelphia, to make arrangements
for his reception. Wo suspect his successor
is C. C. Cambrelenir. He did not make his
trip to Europe merely to test the character of
steam navigation. He was faithful, though
he lost his seat in Congress j he must be re
warded. Fires and Insurance. The occutcnce of so
many fires in our large-cities (says the Journal
of Commerce) has almost disheartened some of
our insurance companies and we hear of one
that is inviting a return of its policies, with an
offer to, refund the premiums paid.

And furthermore, the expense of supporting

REPORT OF COMMITTK ONBXnXS.
To ''the IlevK ef Reprtttntativts, now in
. The commlttc to whom was referred tho
resolution initructing thent "to enquire
whciheru ir expedient w chartBr et reelwrt
er any banks without, making the piivuta
prupetly uf the stockholders liable
for .nil ihe..,debts of the bnk, or without
milking the stoekhnldeto give ntnple security
for. the. debts of the, .bank, nnd, to report by
bill or otherwise," beg leuve respectfully to
make the following repoit:
While the. losses sustained by the commu
nity have ds yet been fro'ni but few of the
bunks, in this state; the events of; the last
yeats, arid especially some of very rtent
date, admonish us thut in". he granting or re
newal of charters for such institutions, a.
watchful vigilance for the security of the bill'
holder is not bnly requited by public senti
ment, but is jdst nnll reasonable n itself, and
is the only way to continue that confidence
without which paper money loses all claims
to public fdvor.
All must agree that it is incumbent onihi
government which grnnts lo individuals the
exclusive privilege ofsubsiiiuiing paper for'
coin ns a circulating medium, to ptovidefor
theconimunity who are lo recievesuchpaprr
the best security that may be practicable, that
stie.li paper should ut nil times be-converta-ble
into gold and silver. And while the
clearest principles of justice demand this for
the snfriy ofthe public, the highest consid
erations of policy bs it regards the banks,
require that every effort should be made to
placethent on such a footing ofstabiiity and
permanence ns will inspire a resonable and
necessary confidence in. their solidity and
strength. Panics nnd pressurcs.thougb ne
cessarily attendant on an extensive system
of paper circulation, arc greatly aggnivfiled,
and their calamitous effects nru mntnly pro
duced, by the feeling, that there is for the bill
holder no positive nnd.certnin ultimate secu
rity. Hence it would seem that banksihem
selves, that design to do a fair and legitimate
business upon actual capital, equally with
the community, interested in their being et.
lublished upon, as already stated, grn'utids
which may be the best calculated to inspire
unshaken confidence in their ability and sa
fety. TnkLcounsel of experience, a far safer
guide iWm imposing theories or confident
assertions we ought to conclude that thoss
provisions intended ns safeguards, which
have heretofore been lound ineffectual, will,
with more probability, il not certainty, pro
so hereafter. The history of banking in t
country demonstrates that nearly all bank
failures arise, eitherfrom a Want of actual
ciipit.il paid in, from fraudulent practices, or
from neglect or mismanagement of the di
rectors. Failures of banks, chartered under the ex
isting laws of this state, can scarcely take
pluce for the want of capital paid m,il thote
laws me faithfully nnd rigidly enforced. If
the fraudulent conduct ol bunk directors
should be made highly penal, the committee
believe that failures from that source uould
be much less likely to occur.. Aiid failures
from the neglect or mismanagement of the
directors, would, as is believed, be' most like
ly to be checked, by ntyming fronr-thca
and the stockholders higher degree of re
sponsibility to the community ; owakeninj
that vigiluncc, and inducing that caution
which watchful nnd prudent men exhibit in
the management ol their own private affHirr.
With rrgmd to the mode of accomplish
ing the greut object in view, the committee
ire aware thut some ditertity of opinion
may exist. But they have seen, with regrtt,
that while the opponents ol reform are con
drained to admit thai "wisdom would mm
to dii'Ute, that we adopt and incorporate
into our system, such additional securi
ties and cnards, as will eflectuallv en
sure the sntety of community ," they, at the
t-uinetime, endeavor to destroy the effect of
this administration, by'iittempting to throw
discredit upon the opposition, or aS il has
been termed, the.cry niruinl bank monopoly,
and by insinuations, lending lo disparage the
means conceived lo oe necessary to remedy
the existing evils, as well as the motives of
those who desire the adoption of such means.
We are told that banks "were created expres
sly for public convenience." If this is true,
e believe it to be tho imperiqtis.auiy ol tne
Legislature to charter them, only on such
conditions, as will ultimately secure .the bill
holder np:n:nsi loss : and, notwithstanding
the party in power have: seen fit to publish to
the world, that "many visionary propositions
on this subject, nave been, nnd doubtless will
continue to .be submitted, from various mo
tives, i hich, though specious in theory, will
be found, on examination, imprur.ticalle.and
unsafe in their nperntion." Still, your com
mittee believe, lliut il these visionary" mtas-
ures of reforrri, asthev have been called by
some, hud been incorporated into bank char
ters of this state, thht the honest bill holders
would not have suffered those severe losses
which the preseptuhsafe bnnkingsvst'em has
brought upon them. Assuminsr, then, that
Ihe present .bunking sytem-is unsafe, your
comtiitd'e. Relieve ihatthVititerrsti bf .com
munity rYOUtre. that the Legislature, witn-
out distinction of party, should irrtmediately
brittjjr siboiit a reform, notwithstanding' w
hivd Se&n admonished to embracerivith cau
tion any new nnd untried measures.
As it .respects the manner ol obtaining jur
ther security, the making the "stockholders
liable, fn their uri'vota capacity appears to Jbe-
sfltlsfactory Q some while 'others consider
thut noihing short of ample bonds, wttlfgooo
secuiityj real or personal, to the treasurer of
the slate, pr county, pught lo be regarded as
sufficient.. Ypur committee are decidely in
fiivor of the hitter method, believiftf; h will
be found to unite the gieatestad vaWag with
the least inconvenience.
The committee are fnllv cnvinee3, that
no. charter, or eriewnl of n charter, ought to
be irranted, without adoptinir the last men
tioned mode orsecuriry.- ' And, as a still far
ther securityao Ihp pubierlhey are of tho
opinion thai the Legislature should reserve
the .power and control over-ll!banking in-
Mitutions tiat may be established.' i
