The Monetary Bute of California ?TJW mwi cf the very general " smash up" in Cal- 1 ifornia over which the Atlantio-aide newspa per! are now speculating, took few well In formed men in this city by surprise. It has long been known here, that extravagance and speculation are the two leading characteristics of the business habits of our brethren In that far weetern quarter. Characteristics Incident to the fact that they are Americans, and, therefore, bj constitutional habit, reckless in business operations, and exist among circum stances, more likely to superinduce heedless ness in expenditures than any others to be conoeived of We do not remember ever to have known an individual whose business was nearly allied to gambling, who failed to be extravagant in his personal expenditures?to I trust to lack. All the world are aware that nothing can be more common in California than extreme proverty yesterday, and full pockets to-morrow. The newspaper aocounts of business affairs there In the last five years have been little more than the jotting down of instances in which men have either suddenly I made or lost large sums. In any country in I which manual labor may by aocident pay, I daily, a hundred times as much as will support the laborer, recklessness and an absence of real thrift must be marked characteristics of I those who depend on manual labor lor their I bread; resulting, eventually, in a heavier ag I gregate of lcsses?privations?than of gains? I wealth. Gold mining in California, up to this pe riod. has been little more than gambling; for I it has been carried on, for the most part, with I out system on the part of those engaged in it. | and with little aid from science, which will oome into play so soon as the gold shall be in I a measure exhausted. Then, few will con I tinue to follow?each man or half dosen men I without capital?a business in which the I chances are that one lucky day will be sue I ceeded by a dozen without success. The surface gold set the community of Cal. I ifornia to gambling, and put up everything to gambling rates or prices?money to from three to five per centum a month, to be used in what is termed out there, legitimate business. The immediate cause of the failure of Pjge, Bacon A Co , Adams A Co., and Wells. Fargo & Co ? nominally houses engaged in the express bus iness, but really the great banking houses of the new State?was the fact that they bad loaned out their funds to parties in trade a', from three to five per centum per month. If their borrowers are good, and some of the Cal ifornia papers eo insist, they will pay eveiy dollar. We anticipate no such agreeable ter mination of the general smash-up there how ever. It is impossible thai the three largest and most active banks, and half a dozen with less means, in a city of the population and business of San Francisco, can suspend with out thus producing a general crash amcng their depoaitora whose money they have loaned out to parties, a large per centage of whom I stand ready, of course, to pay op, if at all, in '(depreciated obligations of the lenders We II question, however, whether these failures will .1 not, in the end, benefit the new State. 11c. . I true interest requires that her business 11 habits (system) shall undergo radical acd J sweeping changes?ahuil becom9 assimilated . I to the business system prevaling in older and , I (commercially) pmdent communities ' I This crash will g-j far toward bringing about I the change we indicate, which cannot fail in I turn greatly to benefit the future of those in I California who live by the sweat of the brow r I Our sympathy is almost wholly with that class, las when they are d<dng .well, all others are I prosperous. This axiom holds good every ' I where in our country, and its prevalence is I really at the foundation of all we are or may I hope to be a; a signally happy and prosperous* II people. Liability of Contractors for Transporta *1 tion, &c ?A case was disposed of a few dajs I ago at the Treasury Department, wherein a | extractor, "a ho had bound himselt by written B| agreement to transport ccrtain army supplies " I from Fort L?avenworth to El Paso, vns re. I tarded on his route, and was under the neces 31 sity of using some of the supplies for the aup I port of himself and his teamsters lie cffaroJ > I payment for the supplies he had consumed, ?I and the question arose whether he should JI pay the pr ce of the articles at the place i I of departure, or at the plate where ho had II agreed to deliver them. It was held, that >1 :n strict legal principles the contractor would ' I be lUble to make good at the place of delivory > I the deficiency in the supplies he had bound >1 himself to deliver, the United States allowing I1 upon suou replaced supplies the contract rate II of transportation. But when supplies are con * I sumed from necessity, or lost by unavoidable t| accident while en route to the place of dtliv I ery, it haa been the practice of the Govern I ment, heretofore, to debit the contractor only ' I with the price at the place of departure, di3 I aliening, of course, any charge for the trnns '1 portatien of the supplies so lost or consumed ? This practice being equitable, the contractor's account was settled in conformity with it. The ,?o called Russian Revelations.?We , have refrained from alluding to the atories from this city, saying that the President had i received from the Kucsian authorities, through their miniater here, a document or documents going to prove that the European allies have made a --compact,'' in which they pledge each other to interfere in case cf any further at tempt at territorial expansion on the part of the United States Government, <?c We did so. because, up to this time, we were unable to obtain any really satisfactory information upon . the subject. Just now however, we have come to a conclusion in out own mind upon it, and, therefore, hasten tq say thai there is not evrn a shadow cf a foundation in truth for it. The inquiries we s?t on foot would have brought us positive proof of the fact if any such fact existed. It is quite probablo that American travelers in Russia, of late, have brought to Washington any quantity of cook and bull stories of this sort, tut It cannot possibly be that the Government oT the United Stateahave recaivcd a word or a line on the subject irom any more reliable source than that which we here indioate. A Clerical Vacancy Filled.?The Secretary of the Interior has designated Mr. John S. Pennybacker, of Mr. Letcher's c-j agression al district of Virginia, for examination to fill the vacancy exidtiog in the first class ($1,200 per annum) clerkship of the Pension Bureau, which will be found noted in the list of ap pointments to clerkships In thit office recently published.

The publishers of the othsr city papers h?ve not thought it iuruaibent upon (hem to pursue such a course. Mr. Rives st >nds alone in this work. As one of the member* of that firm, I propose to show brsefly to the public that Mr. Rives ha* been actuated to pursue this course purely to gratify feel 111(4 of hostility on hii part, and that und^r the prompting* of thuse unworthy motives he^ias not h siiated?wantonly and reckl >tl.j ?to violate truth. That the members ol' said firm would be sub e -t to odium and suspicion on the pari ol'tho-tf to whoui they were indebt d. and that imputation would be cust upon them, was to be excepted. This is the common lot of ?I1 who have i.'ie uusforuiiit: lo meet with pecuniary fatliue, no matter what its cause., They truwea to lhe luinre to vindicate them, feel ing injured that the winding up of the a/lairs of their bouse would result in the myinent in full of, all their liabilities, and in ihe full vindication ol their integrity of Durpose in their whole course. in the year 1851 the house or Selden, Withers k Co , purchased two acceptances given by Blair fc Rives in lavor of Barton & Co., of New York, amount ing together to ov?t $5,000. Bftforc these accept anoes matured Barton & Co failed, and Mews.

At the time of the failure of the, there was no indebtedness whatever on tueir pari to Mr. R. Shortly after tin* deed of trust was executed by the firm and was a-'miited lo record, Mr. Rivvs pro cur.-d a copy aud published it in his paper. To this there could be no objection ceit inly, us it conveved information no doubt interesting to the public a! tliougti the was a public record, arid open to the inspection of all who etinse to ?o to the Cj.y Hall and look at it.

To make d-rogatory charges audio impute cor rupt aud di^hoBi st motives is very eaty to be done with those who, having no sell-respect, are ut'?*-ly careitst, whether their statements he true or false, so they injure I'm e rgiins whom they arc uttkrod. I liis ,s a mode of v/arf.rc commonly pur?ued by base and Hi:principled men towards those who have gaimtd their en-uily. Honorable men will not em ploy misrcprcsentminn for any purpose, and espe ?tj ly will they be car?lul of stat'iij truth, without coloring, even in .-peaking ot those towards whom they entertain unfri. ndly feelings Which of those two characters Mr. Rives, iu his course toward* the ti m of aclden, Withers i Co , has exhibited, let all | just and honorable uien decide. To general charges ol' fraud and corruption wiih 0 it sjicc fixations of fact to sustain them I shall not reply. To sustain some ot his charges of fraud and corruption Mr. It. alleges the i:\i.staneeof certaia facts, viz : That General Armstrong was shown bythe scbed ule attar ,ed to the deed ot trust to be debtors u> the Hou? .?jJ'JjflOi), ulieu, in fact, he owed only about sl.OOJ. That Petit was shown to be debtor $1525, "hen, iu fact, he wad debtor ?15 25 only. That the Clerk oi the llou?e of Representatives had A9000 on deposit with the House; Hud that the sum of ?5",000 ?the payment ol which was pref: rred by the ueed of trust f.n the redemption of ?190,000?of Va. and II unes??e Railroad i!<>nds hypothecated with eer tain parties hi New York, was, in truth, due to W. St Co. thOnteU'e*. These allegations are, sev era:Iy ami collectively, wholly unfounded in truth. i he schedule of the assets ol the firm w as made out by the clerks of the house, Messrs. Waiker and ttivt r, trhc I.nd iiad ti.e siiie and exclusive inan.ig ? ment o: the books. Ii was made out under the su porvision a;u direction of the Hon. Sam"! Chilton who was iha lec.-j adviser ol the firm, who proposed' the deed, and in the form directed by him. Mr. Chi ton desired a list of all tin; credits shown bv the books (which were believed lo sliowaJi) to b? made out; a clause was also inserted in the deed Ui cover all other creditor*, if any there should be. not 1 shown by I he b*K)k.?. Tin4 schedule wa.j not partic ulrirly examined by the members ot the firm, havin? been made out with grr at care by Messrs. Walker and Bestor, and supervised by Mr Chilton. There ?tU fetaud on the books of the firm against General Armstrong, a balance of $32 000. existing at the time ot his death. His personal representative (Mr. Harris) it is true had pewer to check for a sum, ae cruing after the death ol General Armstrong, which if app'ii d to the above balance, would leave due glWW, but fiich ajjpii ation liae not been made, and the house had no power to make if. Mr. Petit was listed in the schedule as owing $15.25, and rot as Mr. Rives alleges?a uiisreprex'ritation wholly his on n. 'I fie I'lerk of tin- House of Rcp-cpentativcs had net cue dollar of either jtuUic or private rnonxy on Jgj't w,th lhe house, but was iu its debt Blmut The charge that the sum of .$55,000 preferred by the deed, wii?, in truth, the properly, aud, in faci, u?ie M S. \\ . & Co. them?elvepv h ujM>n ifw face *o tut:.rly absurd that, in the absence o| any allegation even of a scinMIa of evidence to sustain it, does not ev n call for denial, but may be referred to a- evi. oi the u.ter recklessness of the statements the gratification of malevolent pvsiona will some' limes actuate malignant men to make. Mr. Rives having gratified his long cherished en mity, having valiantly and heroically struck his en emy, who he -upposed was 'Jou-n," assuming nil ihe responsibility of au aet which only a -e.ieroUH and brave tnau would dare to do, challenges ti.o-e lie has thus injured to a suit for "Kfcrt."' For myself, 1 have ne.tlier tini^ nor money re quisite to conduct such a suit. It is, moreover a re^.rt w hich, iu the vindication of truth, is exceed tugly uncertain, and but seldom affords redtess for the injury which Ihe reckless slanderer has peipetraied. I was therefore inclined lo await the vindication which time and future ttevekm ments, 1 was sure, would furnish. I was content to leave Mr. R. n the full and rovgenial enjoyment las course had no doubt afforded^ hiui?supposing however, that his enmity by hid fiist publication had lieon satiated. But in this I have been mistaken. When tiie excitement consequent up in the fail lire ol the house is subsiding-when some of the members and trustees are putting forth every efloit to wind up its affairs, and success is crowning their exertions-?when confidence Is growiug day by day iu ihe public mind that every creditor of the firm", will ;it no distant i!ay lie paid every cent due him ? again, willon a short time part, Mr. Rives, in the columns of his paper,'assails ihe members of the fii m with imputations and vituperation more degrading and coar. er than any before made or employed by him.

'They' did not' do it IhtmtcTcet. in person: but they did it by their attorney, Mr Wjlie There is the miserable quib ble by which 'they' attempt to cover up their dark transactions, and induce their creditor* to bcl.eve thai the Globe has uttered, a* ?iliev' say, 4? gro>s and malicious falsehood.' You cannot, penile men hide all your wilty subterfuges fiom even the eyes' of the Gioiie; audi lhe All-seeing Eye will, no doubt, book you for what msrials/eW, hut cannot see aud' expose. "The exposure of these gentlemen, Messrs. gel den, Withers & Co., has led us to coutruiplatc the difference, i:i a tuorai point of view, between those who receive money ffli deposit, and utter engraved notes, promising to pay money, ai.d then, ihcuth able, relume to return the deposit, or redeem the notes, ar.d those who make counterfeit money, out and out. We frankl v confess that we cauuot draw . v n a fine line ol difference; and, therefore, would as lief trust the one as the other. ^ lie assets ol 8., W. & Co. have pa9?ed into the hands of trustees, tic., who are t oweling ,,av tjie full amount due the creditors, says ihe notice in tha Union. We again repeat that seeing how 8 W & Co. have managed the matter of their f.ilure?how effectuallv tlicy l ave place I all their property, sur reptitiously and clandestinely, bevond the reach of I their crcuitors, in the hands of trustees chosen bv themselves?their intimate friends aud relatives - it is evident that they intend to par just as much as they please, when and how they please, and to whom Ihey please. Were we their creditors, we should jump unliesitaungly at the offer ot either tight v-eisht or eighty-three cents on the dollar." lie Lad iu a previous article ctarged 8., W k Co., with compounding with souie of their cr ditors at eighty-three cents in the dollar, and wbeu in the name of the firm it is denied by a card published in the Lu on newspaper, the article above quoted is published by bim iclieratltg the cliame, end sued *? bf'm' 'I0? he Wf0te ^ aitiele to which the card in the Union was a reply he bad '?learned from an urvhvUtd tourer that 8., W. fli Co. had compromised with Lieut Woodhul! tor! eighty-eight cents iu the dollar," and that he had ?'understood they compromised with B.
