IIAKRY MILLER. orlkans cuu.nty. AUGUSTUS YOUNG. GRAND IM.F. COUNTY. HON. JOEL ALLEN, "TRY THE YET UNTRIED EX PERIMENT." Tliis is the sentiment now advanced by the administration. Its leaders admit that the whole Pet Bank System has exploded. They boldly assert, that "these Banks have forfeited all further confidence from the Treatury, and cannot be relied upon at Us fiscal agents," nnd that they positively refuse to pay out what they have received from the government for eafe keeping. When the Whigs said that the State in solutions were unsafe, and Hint they could not possibly discharge the same fiscal re lations which were so faithfully and punc tually discharged by the Dank of the Uni ted Slates, what was the reply of Andrew Jackson, nnd his greedy followers? Why nothing more or Icsb than this: lThe Slate Banks present to the government the, best and most convenient fiscal agent of which the nature of the case is susceptible." iauch was the langungc ucd in the Senate of the United Siates but two yenrB ago by Silas Wright, the right hand man of the administration. A Fact to ponder upon. When General Jackson came into office, (here were three hundred ond twenty banks in the United States. Since ho has been in office, three hundred and fifty seven new banks have been created. The 320 banks were the product of about 40 years the 357 were made in Ie68 than eight years These 357 new banks were made at the same time that the people were humbugged with the promise of gold currency. A TRUTH WORTH REMEMBERING In a speech lately mode by General Murphy of Ohio, commenting on the co. lamities which mis-government has brougt upon the people, and the ease with which they might have been averted, he says: -They staid at home that thev might save the profits of a day's labor, when, bv going to the polls, they could have saved i lie ea'titngs ol twenty years." Let this truth be remembered by the freemen of Vermont. In the election which will soon be held, spare the labor of one day. nnd go to the Polls, where your votes will effect a change of men, and at the same time, perhaps, a change of measures; thus contributing something to bring the country bock ogain to prosperity and secu u-PGeneral Jackson has lived long enough to see the fruits of his Experiment When he retired from the Presidential Chair a few months ngo, he said he left the country "prosperous and happy." PerhapB he thought so! But whot a comment upon the measures of on administration, has the last five months furnished ! He is now writing letters to Blair, the editor of the Globo newspaper, portions of which we publish to day. What a lesson does the present state of the country and the conduct of the Administration teach to men of all parties ! How strikingly do they show the folly of trusting implicitly to party leaders of joining in the popular cry in favor of the man who may hove the' power and the populace on hissidc, without the wisdom of a statesman, or the unprejudiced bias of a patriot ! Wo envy neither the feelings nor the popularity of General Jackson ! From his "hermitage" ho looks abroad to the condition of the country: freo from the cares and hurry of the executive chair, he has time to reflect to look upon the pros t ration and ruin of his pet bank superstruc ture to contemplate the consequences which have spread abroad from his system otic effort to pull down and to build up af ter his own way, and ho must feel, and doubtless does feel, the bitter pangs which eo signol a failuro of his headstrong and headlong measure is calculated to inflict. In hischagrn and disappointment, he utters his denunciations against hwfavonlebankt, the creatures of his own choico, of his own nursing !--he says of them, "The history of the world hat nevtr recorded such base treaechery and perfidy at hat been commit, ted by the deposite banks against the Gov. Fnnnwi m ernment, and purely with the view of gral ifying Diddle, and Barringi'," &c, see t lie rest ol the letter in the articles we copy from the Now York papers. The put batiks, we believe, ore no better than they should bo i but tho charge against them, thallheycommitled lm perfidy and trcachery'IWfitA view of gratifying Middle and Barrings', and to degrade, cm barrass, and ruin, if (hey could, their own country,' is worthy of Gen. Jackson, and just such a fling as would naturally be expected from him. Instead of blaming himself and his counsellors, aiders and abettors, for selecting weak instruments, Slate Bnnks, and placing upon them bur dons greater than they could bear, and which every statesman in the country knew thry could not bear, he bUmcs the banks for not doing what was not in their power to do ; viz : collect and disburse the public revenues, regulate the exchanges of the country, and be 6afe and capable fiscal agents of the government. Gen. Jackson took '-the responsibility" of selecting the deposite banks, and he ought to have the magnanimity to say, since he says any thing upon tho subject, that he takes "the responsibility" of the failure ; or in other words, blame himself and his accessaries, for the evil done the country. THE OLD WHITE LION. The plot thickens. As September op- proaches we have the devclopenient of tho stupendous project of plunder, (that is the proper word, which is to bo proposed to Congress. It is to take the people's mo ney from the control of the people, and place in I ho hands of Blair, Kendall, Van Buren, Wright &. Co., under the name of a Government Bank to give to them the power and tho right of disbursing millions to make the Collectors of the Revenue, receivers of public monies, Post Masters, &c. &c. agents of the Treasury, to organ ize and perfect a system of fraud nnd cor ruption unknoicn hitherto to any Govern' meat on earth! Van Buren having de stroyed the Bank of the United Siates having broke all the State Banks, oml nearly bankrupted every merchant, is now in favour of seizing upon the public reve nues and using them for the perpetuation of his own power and tho benefit of the "spoils" party. Abandoned and bold as such a scheme is, he did not venture to broach it without the indorsement of Gen. Jackson. Accordingly Blair was instruct ed to procure the recommendation from the old White Lion, whom his own People of Tennessee have put into Coventry at the Hermitage. Here it t: Private Hermitage, July 23, IS37.

It is the great workinj class thai deseiyeu protection from the Irauds of lite banks. Wo have only a word more to say. Let Van Buren make thot proposition to Congress give him a eleor field don't interfere or co9x him from his plan. His own party will make him smell sulphur or we are mistaken. Tho Fox has doubled once too often.--Star. No doubt now remains that the Execu tive has determined upon the Experi ment," or the new "Expedient," aa its distinguished principal advocate calls it as if changing the name would change the nature of the thing itself of the substitu tion of individual agency for bank agency in the receipt, custody, and disbursement of the public money. Tho following state ment, by the Richmond Enquirer, places beyond question the intention of tho Exe cutive in this respect ; "Wo understand that the substitution of 'the Stalo Bank System by t7te Sub'Treas. ury System, may be brought forward by 'Jlr. Van Buren in his Message and that 'it will be supported by some ol his friends, 'in an out of Congress. By how many, 'and what are tho chances of its success, 'it is of courso impossible for us to say, We ivill not even exercise tho Yankee's 'privilege (wo mean not tho slightest dis respect) of guesting." HonniD. An attcmnt to noison a wholo vedding party was mado at the houso of Mr John Harris, ol Morgan county, Geor gia, in tho lost week of July. Thirty six out of forty present, says tho Athens Whig, were made sick but all recovered. The poison was mixed with the dressing of the turkey, and tho cook is suspected. From the Evening Star. UTTho inconsistencies of public men arc becoming odious, by the barefaced indifferenco with which they are glaringly treated. Men in high places, entrusted with n nation's welfare, should feel a deep and solemn obligation lo discharge a pub fic trust with a solo cyo to the public good, and no one subject to entertain a plurality of opinions, and change with the policy of tho ever-changing times. Mr. Silas Wright, altho' deemed by his opponents to bo a most unscrupulous and dishonest politician, a cunning, supcrserviccablc knave is nevertheless a Senator in Con grcss from the first State in the Union a man having a controlling influence over (he President of the United States, and likewise a 6hrcvvd, capable, cool, discern ing and abla man. From his talents and his station, we have a right to expect at least consistency, if we cannot expect in. tegrity but what is the result of this ex pectation ? When the political watch word wos "destroy tho Bank," Mr. Wright delivered his eulogy on State Banks, and the case and security with which they could perform all the duties required ol them. Hear him in 1834: "The Senator from Massachusetts has asked If vou will not rccharter the. Bank. what will you do? Ho (Mr Wright would answer as an individual, expressing his own sentiments, that he would support the EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT of the Government, by all tho lawful menns in his power, in the attempt now rooking to substitute the State Banks fob. the Bank or the United State. He be lievetl them perfectly and completely competent to the object, nnd he was wholly unmoved by the alarms that had oecn sounded os lo their ini-ecurity, nnd tho danger that were to bo apprehended from Ihe change. Heboid that the steps already token to effect the object, in view were all warranted by the Constitu tion AND LAWS OF THE LAND. 11 Was Ills firm opinion that the steps which had been taken would redound to the honor and best interests of the country, and ought to bo sustninrd by the people and their representative.''." In conclusion Mr. Wright observed: "He would mi'rely pronounce his opin ion that the country would sustain the Executive nrtn of the Government in tho Experiment now making to substitute the State Institution'' for the Bank of the United Slates. II'1 had most entire confidence IN TUB r'ULh AND COMPLETR SUCCESS OF THE EX PERIMENT." There is no equivocation in the forc rrning it is a complete substitute of Stale Banks for a National Bank. In 1037 when the suicidal measures of the admin istration finally drove the State Banks to suspend specie payments, we hear Mr. Senator Wright sing another tune from his coltoge on tho St Lawrence: "Under this law (the deposite Law)!., , . ,. . ... . .. it. ii,;- r,,.M-;, ;., ,i -V ii , the re-esinblishment ol genuine republicon with this provision incorporated in it. all the existing deposite banks accepted their nigh trust to the government ond pcnplo of the country, and recoivetl some forty millions of the public troo-tire, nnd yet. trnnL'f to toll, before a single twelvemonth hud passed away, they all refuse to pay gold and silver fur their notes. Nov mure, and , Sold , further nnd icor.se. they even refuse to pay lonip. gnvcrnnuni nmj Hung mil llieir irredeemable bank nntes-lUn-o. notes which the law above mentioned prohibits ,h J the officers of tho government from either j receiving or poyinp; out, for the millions entrusted to their safe keeping. Still further. Ihe drafts of tho Treasurer of ihn United States, drown upon a deposite bank for a mere fund, belonging to individual citizens, which fund was by tho govern ment imported from abroad in gold nnd silver, placed m I hat bank for safe keepm? have been dishonored and returned without payment because Ihe holder of the drafts would not receive Ihe irredeemable bills of that bank in snti faction. These violatmns of law and con TRCTby the deposite bnr.ks hnve compelled an oxtronrdtary convocation of Congress, 'hot measures may bo adopted to relievo tho Treasury from the embarrassments resting upon it from the provisions of the deposite law and the failure if Ihebanki to comply with their obligations. comply with their obligations Thus Talis to the ground the preference of Stale Banks lo a National Institution. So much for Mr. Senator Wright's conm tency; now for his principles and hispatriot ism. Tho "experiment," it cannot be denied, has failed, and woeful is the failuie fur the people of this country; so much 60 that none of tho agents could in any other country on earth escaped condign punish ment. An honest Senator or an honest man finding that his advice had ruined his country, would forwith abandon his scheme and consent to go back to old and safe systems. Not so Mr. Silas Wright. He has failed in his plans and ruined the coun. try, but he is Hir trying another experiment which no doubt ho has persuaded Mr. Van Buren to propose : "What then, can Congress do! We answer try yet the untried experiment. Produce a perfect and entiro seperalion belween tho finances of tho nation and all tho banks of issue, or discount, however, or by what authority existing between the National Treasury and those artificial creations of legislation upon which we have so unfortunately attempted to depend. Wo havo tried tho faith of those soulless existences, in all their forms of being, and that lias always failed us in tho hour of utmost need. Now let us trv tho faith ol natural persons, of moral, accountable ogonts, of Irecmen, Lot Congress trust the salo keeping of the public treasures witii citizens, as suctt, and not os bank corporators, with her responsible to itself, and not to a moneyed institution," Hero wo havo lroialty without dis, guise, and in Us worst shape. A control over Congress a control over tho treaty and war making power, and a control over the Treasury. Congress not tho Govern ment is to be divorced from all supervis ion over the people's money, which is to be entrusted to an army of irresponsible agents Placemen and Pensioners appointed by the President. We give up tho Republic the moment such a plot is permitted to have existence; and this is called Democracy ! ! Plunder is the right name. From the People's Press. Mr. Editor While reflecting upon tho present state of our otTuirs. the nrostrolion ofour business, and tho derangement of currency, I am led lo believe that all is not right that there is a wrong resting somewhere, cither in ourselves, or in the conduct ol thnso who rule over us. We have a country abounding in resources, a people industrious anil enterprising: with, out an expensive government to support, or a heavy national debt to oppress the people with luxation. And yet we ore verging towards bankruptcy, and arc actu

ally becoming poor. It is to be fearod that unless some fnvorable change takes place in our situation, we have not arrived at a period ofour woes. Our rulers are in a measure responsible for this reverse of fur. : tune. Their political quackery bos well! nigh ruined us.nnd we must cease to receive their nostrums or we are undone. O" Accounts from every section of the country from which hear, are encoura ging to the Whigs. The measures of our rulers, as connected with the existing dts- tress, are undergoing a riffid scrutiny with the freemen. This is what we want -this is nil we a9k. The subject has only to be carefully examined, to be understood ; and " ""'-T ,um u..uC.0,u, i. unsure ,. it triumph of whig principles. We say lo ' 3 the freemen, look at this subject-examine inln llio Mnt, ,, n, ,,..., i, i :. present condition look at the nature and bearing of the measures of the government touching the subject examine the bank ing system, nnd scrutinize the measures of the banks listen to the cry of "monopoly" and see where it originates--in short, take a thorough and general view of the whole subject, in oil its bearings, and then make your decision. To this decision wo are willing to trust the interests of the state. "The Caledonian." We have receiv ed the first number of n paper bearing this title, published at St. Johnsbury, in this State, by A. G. Chodwick. It is of tho true Whig stomp, and it is not enough to say it promises well for the cause both its mechanical and its editorial departments give evidence that it is desiined to become n nnu.nrfi.l nnrilinru In Ih.wn ivh.i Inhr,- f,,. principles. THE UNTRIED EXPEDIENT. The most retnarkuble documents that have recently appeared, arc a couple of private letters from the Ex-President of ... ,t i ,.i ... .: i..... , ! t lint journal on W. dnesdoy.

There is a condensation of gall and venom in their sentiment and expres sionan extreme intensity of bitterness which indicate the rage ond mortification of tho oltl man at the ludicrous failure of his magnificent Specie Humbug. They assail the merchants the deposite banks and talk of Diddle nnd the Baring in the same strain of vulgar rhndomonlade and abuse in which the official editor, from his loii; personal intimacy with the Gen eral, has become such n distinguished pro ficient. You might readily imagine that they were from tho pen of Blair himself got up at the metropolis and sent nn to the General for Ins signaturo; so deeply ore they imbued with his ferocious and Jaco binicnl spirit. The main object of these letters is Ihe recommendation nt the yet untried ex pedient suggested by Mr. Gouge, Mr Senator Wright, nnd Mr. Amos Kendall the divorce ol State and Jiank the col lection and disbursement of Ihe revenuo in gold and silver only, with the issuing of Treasury drafis, nnd Post Office orders, wo presume, by woy ot a belter currency. Thoy may be regarded as letters of in struction to Mr. Van Huron, procured by Mr. Blair, and held over bin bend in lerro rem, or ns letters procured by Mr. Van Ruren's own advisement, to endorse and sustain tho suggestions which ho may think it judicious to venture. In either point of view how despicable is Iho President's position! Whether we regard the move ment of ihe Globe as a warning and men ace, or as a step necessary to prepare tho public mind for tho contents of the Sop. lember mossagejn whot a contemptible at titude it exhibits Mr. Von Buren! Tho "predecessor" is not content with ruling through his mccessor j ho would rule over him. Not satisfied with issuing a "Fare well Address ' embodying all Ihe wisdom and policy of our second Washington and written as Judgo Brsckcnbridgo said "by some such father of his country ns Amos Krndall" ho must givousmnro last word more "posthuinos" compositions more invaluable legacies to guide the course of the President of his own appoint ment. Mr Van Buren is determined to main, toin Inn powor as hu acquired it ; by the oiinurst acquiescence and the basest ser viliiy. Ho will ndopl no measure during General Jackson's lilo. unless ho is sustain cd m it by General Jackson's authority. He thinks that tho "noma of M'Gregor is still a name to conjure the wild fiend with- al." He will never bo permitted to pro pose any measure on his solo responsibility. Such is not the policy of the Kitchen Cabinet. Blair and Kendall will still con tinuo to control public affairs through the old gentleman at the Hermitage. Let them hold up his sign manual to the author of the letter to Sherrod Williams, and he will be cntnpclled to "follow in the foot steps of his illustrious predecessor." Whatever this cabal may see fit to attempt will be attempted on the responsibility of General Jackson. His name will still continue tu bo their tower of strength. On the ninth of July, General Jackson wrote to his friend Francis P. Hlair, editor of the Executive journal. The letter, nc cording lo the Globe, was a private letter, designed lo "cheer" Mr. Blair in "his duty to the people, and not designed for the public eye." "This letter," continues tho Globe, "isJ unsuco on in uio Drooti ootu nanu 01 me venerable Chief, without the slightest care of punctuation, or the correction of sen toners involved in the haste of unpremedi taicd and unrevised composition. We fear we have transcended the reserve in which tho correspondence of such a man as General Jackson, retired from public life, should be held ; but while he is mode the object of foul and false imputations, we feel that all the respects of delicacy should he made to yield to the vindication of his fotne." The Globe publishes the extracts entire in italics: "Now N the time to separate the Government from all banks receive and dishuise I lie revenue in mulling litn gold and silvm coin, and the circu. laiiiin of our ruin lliiougli all public dishuisemenls will regulate t lie curiency forever hereafier keep IIip government lice fiom all emliarriHsmeni, whilst jl leaves lite commercial community to trade upon its own capital, anil the hanks to iircomodale it with fiirh exchange and credit as best suits llieir own intpiPsts- both tains money making concerns, devoid of patriotism, looking alone to their own 1 inipiesis, reaaidlcssof all oihers.

This letter of Iho eighth is fortified by another letter of the 23d of July, mdtcii ling prrciely the same opinions. Here then is the sovereign panacea, by which health is to be restored to the body politic. The Government dues are to be collected in hard monev. CiHiom hoii-e bonds arc lo be paid in coin. The revenue s to bo received and disbursed in "noth ing BUT f.lll,n AND SILVER." ThU I to restore prosperity to all branches of bn-i-ncss, to prevent overtrading, nnd to furnitli the country with on "undi'Viaiing metallic currency. Wlio can iloubl after this that it is tlm internum of the Globe faction to carry through the plan which they have been trumpeting through tho country for the ln-t two month, nnd in which thev have -uddi'iily found uch miraculous vir tues? We are to be reduced In a Hard Money Government. Office holders nnd servants are to be paid in specie; while the people mun retiinin contented with u currency of inconvertible paper. Mr. Tall, inatlge must write no more eulogies on credit, fur "no credits" is to be the motto of the administration. Mr. Cambrelens came nearer to the mark when he sanl that the "Ranks musl bo left to their fate." I here can be no doubt that the divorce of Bank and State nnd the- utter oban. dinment of the general currency to six and twenty local legislaturesarc to be the only recommendations of Mr. Van Buren The language of tho administration press. and particularly ol the official organ the pannniet ot Mr. tmugc, and Iho oeknnwl edged articles ol Mr. Senator Wright left us little In lenrn on lh:s subject. In nddi lion lo nil this we hove now the conclusive authority of nrcsiilenl Jackson. As lor as the Government is concerned we are to to adopt nn exclusiyo metolic currency Ten thousand irresponsible agencies ore to be substituted for tho old, welltried, and secure system of former administrations. Mr Woodbury is to declare on his veracity mat ne uelievcs individual agents nioro "safo ond convenient" depositories. Mr. Wright is lo recall all his vouchers, pled ges nnd endorsements for the Slate Bonks, and lo venture still stronger pledges for tho "UNITED EXPEDIENT." The Globo i8 to ackmnvledg Ihat the Deposite Banks have realized the pretliclions of the Whig Sen otorsin 1034 and 1835, and have proved faithless and worthless depositories of the nublic money. All the former policy of Ueneral .lacKsnn and me Pnrly is In be discarded nnd discredited, and we are gain to bo set afloat on a sea of Experi. ments, without rudder, chart or compass.
