Tlie chief ' mis-ion" of tbo allair appears to bo to create commercial and monetary panics, (or which purpose it vu doubtless supposed that the small est amount of commercial and financial knoirl- ej .vud be quite Millicient.

One of the latest exhibitions of stupidity and malico with which this ('mnmereuil (,') paper is in tho weekly habit of edifying its readers, is found in an article in its columns of tho 12th Feb. under thn beading of " Vermont Hanks," wherein an attempt is made to discredit tho hills nfall II inks in this State, but more especially of tbo following eleven : .Montpelicr, .Middlebury, Caledonia, I'oullney, Newbury, Manchester Orango Co., Farmers and Mechanics, Wood. slock, Fanners and Jll.ick Itiver.-lbough llio remaining seven arc left, by Ibis financial wise- I J 4-1 arre, in about the saino category j Now it is hardly necessary for us to say that tho credit of the II inks of Vermont is not quite at the mercy of the cyphering of panic makers aim uui-specuiaiors. jnero is no ntaleintlie Union whoso banking institutions are under better management, both legislative and directo rial, or whoso State currency is in a sounder and healthier condition.

Hut the thing ha been done. " I'rogres-ive Democracy '' has plunged tho Nation into War, and " manifest de-liny " is alsiut to add im mensely both to our territorial dominion, and to the wide and almost irreconcilable diversity of views and iiilcreN, of character nud habit-, which already renders luilional legislation al most a work of impos-ibility, certainly a work of extreme difficulty and embarrassment! We do not entertain a doubt that it would be much better for the interests of the American People proper, if this War had resulted in the n-ccssiun of Texas, rather tho con juesl of n large portion oI'Mcxico.

Now' let our readers: look at it for one moment: This Country has waged Wnr upon Mexico for nearly two jcars, at a loss of some fifteen nr twenty thousand American lives, and or not loss than eighty or n himhril millions of ihillars, for tho purpoo of what? Why, says Mr. Folk, "in demnify for tho past and security for tho fu ture ! " And yet, it appears that we are about to assume In pay the. ihblnf Mcxicn lo uur citizens, (the non-payment of which was the main cause oflhowar!) and to pay that Government FIF- TF.F.X MILLIONS of dollars for the territory we acquire precisely what we paid France, in 1S05, for Louhiim, without the preliminary llnttris'i of a bloody war II Louisiana was a valuable purchase.

The acquisition of it is uncalled-for nnd unnecessary. It will in trodiico new and inharmonious elements into this Union. It will pl.ico a foreign and a bit terly ho-tilo people under our laws, without their vih or consent a people, too, unacquainted with our institutions, and unfitted for cither tlie rights or tho duties which their new citizenship will confer and impose upon them. It will iin I part new bitterness to the sectional divisions that j already distract tho Union. Ai.d in every light in which we can view it, it is fraught with the heaviest curse to the American Nation opera ting only as a fire-brand thrown among the Jinx en bonds that unite the several States. This is the way wc regard this "vast acquisi tion" which appears to be nearat hand ; and wo ! ffrvently trust that no faltering or truckling to " peculiar institutions," no wax-uo-ed subservi ency will bo exhibited on the part of the Freo Siules of the Union. the principle of the.
