Had it resembled llio Wild Cat system of Michigan in allowing tho i3sno of notes on doubtful security, wo should havo henrd of Hanks thicker than churches by this limn Wu prefer n system under which men will embark n Hanking because they have cipital, nnd not because they owe debts. A strong application has been made lo Mr. Hiddlu from this city, to induce him to establish a sunM monitor of ten or fifteen millions under this law.

Mexico is peculiarly and unhappily situated: She is torno with intcs. tine disputes), and has recently been dis I tncinbored by tho cor.nivanoo and direct assistance of n neighboring people. Sup cossivo violent factions havo had nominal possession of llio administration of her government i and tho revenue, which should havo boon opplied to tho support of tho national credit, has been prostituted to the purposes of faction. Civil war has dis trnctcd her, nnd in the confusion not only has violenco been dono lo citizens of other nations, but tho protection oT foreign res i. dents has been almost en truly neglected. Mexico has, in consequence of these un fortunate circumstances, and nf the ill con duct of officials who have smuggled them selves into power, been long embroiled with this country. To Iho sufficiently por plexcd foreign relations of our eiator re public a equabblo with France is now added. Tho causes of complaint which gave rise to it, have, as wo have noticed, grown mora out of circumstances than out of intention -yet must Mexico pay the pi per. The case is a hard otic but where a greater and a less Power contend, it is easy to guc9 on which side of the question tho is.-uo will place the justice of tho quarrel. Silk.

Hut tho establishment of territorial lorm of government, in a well drfincd territory, sacred to the Indian alone, for which this bill provides wil conduce to their security and happiness, whilo it institutes ono of t!io mo3t intcros ting experiments of which tho mind can conceive. It is proposed by tho bill, if we understand it, to mako the Indians members of their own territorial council, and to fill with Indians all tho offices, except perhaps that of governor of tho Territory for few years. Ho, with somo other officers will bo nppointed by the general govern me nt. The experiment, by dovoloping tho ambition of Indians, and placing them whoro they aro not continually tinminded of tho superiority of their whito conquer ors, will elevate their character, and hu man'zo them.

From tho subjoined Message of the President of tlio United States, It will be scon that the financial condition of tho country is nvnw edly most doplorable. This confession and appeal from the President, must have been iu their necessity most mortifying to him, and in their execution personally humilia ting. Assuming, as ho did. Iho reins of power from the hands of his "illustrious predecessor," whose boast it was lhat ho left this great people free and prosperous- Mr. Van IJurcn may well contemplate with amazement ond remorse, tho disasters which have sedulously attended his adminis. (ration from tho firtt day of il, down to, the present hour. Suroly by this time, lie mtht begin to perceive that the error has nil along been with himself that his obsti nacy at the start, in tho omission In do what sound policy required, and his per verse adhesion to a new scheme distasteful and alarming to tho wholo country have at last landed him in tho confessional. The scheme of Sob Treasuries before lie saw that he should want lo use it was de nounced in advance by President Van Hit ren himself. His friends and coadjutors joined him iu iu hearty condemnation. How is it possible, that the people who have known should forget these things? How is it possible lhat thoy s-hould have C'ltifi. lenco in an administration so vacilla ting and unstable iu its policy? And in a point whoro confilcnce is all in all tho monetary sjstem of tho cnintry ? Mr. Vnn Huron may thank himself and friends for his present position. To the Semite and Howe of Representatives I submit I o I ho consideration of Congress a htnletnent prepared by the Secretary of tln Treasury, by which it appears that tho U. S., with over twotily eifjhl millions in do-po-jito with tho Sintps, and over ft tr.n millions duo from individuals nnd hank-.', and, from llio Htua'iou in winch thc-c fund-i nro placed, is in imnirtlinto dinger of lining rendered nnah'e to di.-clnrge, with good faith and prompt i'ude, the varioti pecuniary obligations of the government. The recnrience of this result has for somo time been npprohended, nnd cfl'irls mado to nvort it, as the principal difficulty arises from a prohibition in the present law lo ro-issuo such Treasury notes as might bo paid in before they Is II due, nnd tuny be cffcciunlly obviated by giving the Treasury during the whole year tho benefit of the full amount originally authorized ; tho remedy would seem to be obviotnand easy. The seiinus embarrassments likely to arise from n longer continuance of (lie present state of things, induces tno respect fully to invite tho earliest attention of Congress to the subject which may bo eon sistent with n duo regard for other public interests.
