mirily, llio ponce, thn piuspcrily nnd tlic happiness of iho country. To riled thin reform, Iho country should immediately emancipate- itself, ai far as pus hIiIis, from (ho IramtiHils of I no lulgnitig Dynasty.

Thi'y see 'he conilition to winch tin: experiment has brought tho ciiiiniry. but iiistend til rui n miliar to dm safe position froui which it has (li'pttr led, they would hnve il go forwnnl to mi exclu. sivu" ineinlio currency. Their cry It -nway with monopolies--Down with bank-. Give. u equal rights mul jirivilciri't. mul I lid irooil old linnl money, con.-t tutionul currency. Now nil this appears very fnir ntul domoernitc. lint h t us look nt ft n inotnciit. What is a monopoly ? It is mi exclusive right- Anil is tin? nrussarily iinti-rt'publi. fan and odious? Whnt, then, becomes of the rights of lorry mul other exclusive rights, which hovel time out of ininil, been granted by the legislature of thiti truly republican state. Whether such grants be, or be not proper, depends, nut upon the question whether ihey ore monopolies, but whether they mo beneficial to the eommuni. Ii tin; i'UIimc d' (id being always, right fully, the ren-o:i mul the rule of such grunts. To deo'aiui against all monopo lies is but n hliuil opposition to n haled mul odious name, without understanding the true grounds of objection to the thing which it signifies. Monopolies nt" justly odious when lin y nrc granted by Kings to extend i lie royal influence, mul stisiuin the roynl power jn.-l ns the exulti-ive pnvi lege of office grnnled It) the friends of nur National Executive, to extend his influ ence, nnd Misimn his power, is justly odious, Rut it, by no means, follows t lint the people, through their immediate repre. enintiveo, may not grant exclusive rights, for limited periods, under specilic responsi. hilllies, mid lor purposes, not otlierwise to be accomplished which are benelieinl lo tho public. Such grants may be Mrtcily iiinnnpolief as I inly so. ns grants ol per p ionl nnd exclusive privileges, made lo s.iMnin royal power; nnd vet who cannot o il.e wide praetn al difference which exists between ihein? In Hie indisuriminatcncss of thc-oppnsi-tion. ngainsl inonopln:s. it is often directed against grants of corporate privileges for manufacturing, nod ol her .purposes, grant not only clearly beneficial, in their eft'octs on our productive indust ry, but when prop, erly restricted and regulated truly republic can, inasmuch as, thereby, numerous nidi vidunls of small capital may combine their capital and energy to benefit themselves Him the community, and maintain a sue ces.-lol compeiitioii with individuals of gnat wealth, who need no tuch facilities. It is by i-uch combinations of capital and energy that most of the noble enterprises of the present day are carried forward enterprises in which the rich nnd the poor capiinli.-is and laborers fanner, mc elianics, merchants, all have a deep com. mou inleresi. What would hnvo been the progress of our country in manufactures, and how successful us competition Willi the capital mid industry of oilier countries, bill lor I he privileges grunted lo inanufac I tiring corporations? Jiut for these we should now have been hewers of wood and dmwers of water in die manufacturing "nns'ocrccy" of Europe. The objections lo banks on the part of. ihe m:w lights, is, that thoy are grants of exclusive privileges, and that they are iiii'horized lo i-siie paper as n circulating medium. Now if it b,! expedient that wo should have a paper currency nt all. the question is how shall we hnve it ? Shall every man for tiie sake of carrying nut the theory of equal nnvilogos have the right in is-ue hta notes nod put them in circulation ns currency i ? Who is prepared io subject I he contents of hi-, pocket book to such a hazard as this ? If we are lo hnve any paper currency, it must, obviously, be regulated by law. IS ii i how? Either by a general banking law, whereby all who urn disposed to asso ciate, with a given amount of cnpilnl, shall hnve the privilege of issuing bills, and opening offices ol di-count and depnsile, or hy special laws, pns-ed a-- it may from tune to tune, seem meet lo the Legislature I lint t-uch institutions should be put in opera tion for the public licniftt. If we are to have banks which shall operate safely In the community, it is nppn reul Hint ilieir number inu-t he limited by siw. regolnlion : nuil the moment tins i iloue, their right lo exercise hanking power- becomes, in some sense, an exclusive privilege a "monopoly." Now which would tlie new lights pre fer? To give every man the privilege ol issuing bills ns n currency? or give it by n general law, lo all who may associate for that purpose? or grant banks, in the ti-u nl way, as it may he made lo appear that tho business of llio community requires them? TUvftrst is out of llio question. Thu sceond would fill t In Halo Willi banks, to oveiflowtng! while iho third would place tho whole mailer under the direct control oi i no legislature, upon Us view, from time io nine, of the condition u ml wants of the coiutuunily. Thu Inst, it seems to ns, every opponent of excessive bonking must prefer. And yet Iho new lights clamour ngmiist it as an odious mo nopoly, because (be privilege of hanking is not allowed to cverv man in the eommuni y- . H is thus thnt. the bugbear of "mnnnpn ly" vanishes at tho touch of a ie" ui'. investigation. Wo admit, however, that there i.jay bt odium monopolies such for example, as a grant of the exclusive right of selling pro visions, or exorcising n particular truite, within certain limits tho riled, and the great mischief of which would be, to do stroy competition, nnd oppress die column nily with exorbitant prices. Hut no such ofleetri result from bank incorporations, because the rale of interest is limited by law, mid they nrc, or slinuhl he, grunted in sufficient numbers to produce u wholesome competition if the rnto of interest were not limited. The gicnt question, then, isIs it. on the whole, host to hnyo nny banks, mid a: currency composed partly of paper; or shall we go with Iho despotisms of Spain, Portugal. 1 1 n ly, mid Turkey, lor nil entire exclusion of tiie credit system, and the employment of a currency exclusively mc tnlie Our limits will not permit u to go into mi examination nf Ibis great question, Hut we will nek, whether those who nre for putting down nil banks, mid depending iipun n currency purely ini;lf,lic, hnve con sidcred the admitted "fact, that it would require ihe whole of the specie of the world to furnish ihe Untied Suites with n siifiieietit quantity for Us vast and iucreas ing exe'innges ? And if it did not require the half of il : if Ihe destruction of thu hanking rytcm would require but the doubling of ii ii r present nuiouul (1!0 millions) of specie ; where nre wo to get tins addi tional eighty millions? Will iho new lights toll ns? Why, only the sudden for eing of less than half that sum into this country from Unrope, under tho lute dis astrous experiment, bus produced filch a drain from lOiighind ns to derange her mo netnry system, mid thus mil. as wo havo shown, in producing the deiangoinont of our own. Hul suppose wo couid gel an ndditinnnl eighiy millions by forced means. Ilow long "could wc keep it ? A twenty feet bend of wnter might ns well be kept, from flowing out ol mi unobstructed passage, n to keep such an undue proportion of ihe specie of the world in nny country. It will find its level, in spile of legislmive. or exe cutive contrivances um! prohibitions. And besides, who is prep'ired to hnve I lie properly nnd labor of ihe country re dticed one half or three fourths, in value by Ihe diminished amount 'of cireula'iug medium necessarily consequent upon a resort to a currency exclusively meialic? Who dncs not sen I lint debtors who must d,s-charge their obligations' in the number nf dollars expressed upon ilieir face would be inevitably ruined by such an operation as this? And then there i- the sudden check which would be given lo-the grent enter- nriscs of our count rv a relrogntion of half a century in us career of improve ment n Hidden transition from the Vigor of manhood, with Hie rapid circulation of the blood of n healthy credit system, to the sluggish circulation, and enfeebled energies of a decrund old ngo. The truth is, we must coniinun the crcd. it system, and wo must have banks. They nre, indeed, liable to be abused, us is- every good thing. Hut shall we therefore de stroy them? We do not destroy our rail roads and stenni boats, and return to rut ted roads nnd sloop navigation, because. now and then, a car runs off I he track, and a steamboat bursts her boiler. Welrv rather to improve the rail roads, nnd strengthen boilers, and make the manager more careful. Thus should we do with the credit system ; and thus shall we do. if wise aud'prudeiit councils are to govern the country.

Here the "Experiment" which Jackson, Uenion, Kendall. Van Dnren, &c. backed by Ihe Globe nnd Argu-s, have been trying for years, and until il has ruined the coun try, is finally nhnndoued! Indeed the Globe goes further and denounces thai grand ''Experiment" us a ,,Ciii.mi:kicai, Sciik.mi:." Our friends, long ago. called it a "hum nur.." This excited tins indigna tion of those who now confess that the scheme is "chimerirat," The Adininisi ration, though backing out. has not the magnanimity to confess. A frank avowal of error goes far in atoning for it. Rut tho Aduiiui-tratton, ever false, denies that it was in lavor of Ihe hum hug." f , , (, f ,)(; ,;,, PVi,!Pct, j ',, against its present a-sertiou is on file.

Mr. Van Buren is panic-struck. Ho promised Jackson and Ben ton to go the "hum hug." He did go it as long as his courage lasted, and after shaking in thn wind for weeks, he has- jibed over to the Rives and Tallniudge side of the qucs ion.

The news of the sus pension in this country had been received, hut produced less sensation Ihnn had been anticipated here.
