Smilio has backed out, ''bank reform" has evaporated, and thosa who relied upon locofocoism lo fill(thcir pockota with gold and silver, aro beginning lo estimate tho promised "reformation" at its real value. There is 0 class of persons, however, who arc not thus to bo humbuged with impu nity, and with whom tho leaders will have a fearful account to settle. The following from ono of the leading, and probably the most influential locofoco in this region, will Ecrvc as on indication of the contempt with which tho report h received by those who supposed tho leaders wcro acting in good faith, and had a feasible project which they intended to carry out.

Pi.ATTsnuncii, Oct. 2G Wo regret to announce that Col. PiuncE nnd his regi ment (tho Ul U. S. Artillery) nro ogain ordered to Florida. Tho head quarters of iho regiment has been at rlattsburgh for tho last year; aud the ofiiccrs and men havo donu much to prevent aggressions and havo materially aided in preserving order on this wholo frontior. Only one company is to remain in this section of country half of it at this post nnd the remainder at Rouses Point ; nnd this is to bo llio nnly regular forcn on tho frontier from Maine to Sackutl's Harbor! Thero seems tu be an impropriety in this movement, at a season of tho year, when it may bo apprchonded that fresh distur bances will break out, and tho scenes of 1037 nnd tl again bo enacted. Col, Pieuue's regiment has served more than threo years in Florida, with very dis. tinguished credit to themselves and honor to tho county. Tho only reason that can bo oflurrd for their being ordered back agianso soon, is, tho anxiety of the govern, lucnt to avail itself of the services of officers who hive the boit knowledge of tbe coun- try, nnd who havo tho greatest experience in 'Florida warfare.' They go from us with tho best wishes of our whole commu- nil y for their success, health and happiness. Republican. Q.oi:tiKc, Oct 23.
