EVENING STAR. WASH JLN It TON CITY: THURSDAY OeUbfr ft, 1S*T. SPIRIT Of T1IR MORNING PKtiSS The ImuUigeuetr discusses the current panic. taking occasion to ."how very clearly, we think, that it is utterly unfounded in*any just causr Or. in other word*, that it is merely the result of over-speculation on the part of traders in money, and a sudden unnecessary fear that has struck the hearts of the people. In the course of his article the editor says : " The great revulsions which periodically over take in in our haste to accumulate wealth have their origin doubtless in that passion for rapid ac cumulation and consequent ocer-trmiimg which ne, uaiid al 1 ? K? ? ? ????????~t?? ? ? * ? - ? * | P - - ?VH pe?va4o aii classes of the commiyiity and infect nearly everv specie* of business artivity. The consciousness of this !.t is which renders each in dividual so susceptible to a panic that a single disaster in a remote quarter of the country is found enough to raise and propagate through all ranks of society the craven ana selfish cry of saure qui The Union's editorial columns are again de voted, to-day, to 14 Banks and Banking,'' the article being directed tor the most part to an exposure of what the editor evidently regards as the evils dosing from the course pursued by the note-issuing banks of the District of Colum bia. lie presents his readers with a history? an incorrect one in many point*. wc appre hend?of the banks and banking in this District fur the last forty yc-nrs ; and also contends, with no little force, that the present note-issuing banks exist illegally, are not responsible for their obligations, and cannot collect by law a dollar duo to tLcui. >uch is the line of his ar gument. In the course of bis remarks, the editor clasps the Bank of Commerce, in Georgetown. with those he names?the Bank of Columbia, the Baokof the Kepublic. the Merchants' and Far mers' Bank of Statham, bmithson A Co., Ac., Ac.?as having bursted up, defrauding their creditors. This, we are very sure, must have been but a slip of the pen , for he must know that the Bank of Commerce paid its notes longer than any other existing note-issuing District bank, and that all the property of its well known wealthy stockholders is publicly pledged fur the fulfi'mcnt of its every obligation ?o far as security is concerned, its creditors are. much better off than those of any other District note-issuing bank. There is no uncertainty, whatever, as to the character and extent of its stockholders' obligations, nor have tho>-e who manage it conducted its affairs in the present crisis so as to forfeit, in any degree, the public Occfidence in their desire and determination to resume specie payments at the earliest moment possible. The course of this bank, throughout all the current financial troubles, hn? been so specially fair and "above-board ? towards the public, as that wc feel it our duty to express that opinion in tbo Star. Unlike the other District of Columbia note-issuing banks, it claims no chartered privileges whatever, being a private bank, far whose transactions all its stockholders?partners?are liable in all their property.

Unlike every other bank itwpen sion era. the present was brought about by no derangement at the foundation of American c>mmcrcc. That of 1814 to 1819 wu the result of the entire failure of markets for the agricul tural products of the country, brought about by the war of 1812 and its concomitants. The farmer could not sell the proceeds of his labor, and therefore could not pay the country mer chant; who, in turn, failed to pay the importer; who, in turn, failed to pay the banks and hia for eign correspondent*. The susj>ension of 1826 was but a prolongation of that above described ?a sort of relapie. The suspension of 1837 was in great part the result of the failure of crops of 1838, that made us heavy importers rather than exporters of the common necessaries of life produced by the farm er s toil. The present suspension has occurred in the inidst of high prices for agricultural pro ducts and heavy crops, at a time when tho great mass of the people are freer from debt, too, than ever before; and when gold is more abund ant among us than the most visionary could have dreamed ten years ago. It is simply the result of theoraziness produced by our over prosperity. The result of gambliug specula tions in wild lands, railroads, Ac., entered into by financial dealers infatuated with their suc cess. Under such circumstances, that its evil con sequences can much longer hang like a black pall over the interests of the community, wo do not'<believe. In a very few weeks the cotton cro? will be mDvirg forward, bearing an almost unexampled price on account of the necessary almost total failure of the supply from India, to result from the political state of that quar ter of the globe. The Indian war must also quicken the foreign demand for our breadatufls other provisions, Ac., so as to make England a much larger customer of ours than she would have been had it not occurred. Already, ex change on England finds no purchasers at the North, a condition of things almost unknown up to this time. In sixty days the gold will be flowing back upon us from Europe in millions; and with such a state of things at home as we describe above, it is utterly impossible that the American people will continue tu }fat up with the pretence of the existence of non-specic paying banks re pressing every public and private interest, and standing?nuisances in the eyesight and stumb ling-blocks in the way of everybody. We are no believer that the banks will continue ?? sus pended sixty days longer. Those that are not paying specie long before that time will be so universally voted bogus business concerns, as that public opiuion will hoot them out of the pretence of existence.

The Defaulting Banking Hois*.?We continue daily to receive communications from depositors with the house of Pairo A Nourse, all of which evince the anxiety of the writers to save if poasiMc, the rc.-pective sums they entrusted to those parties. Already we have said all. at present, it behooves us to say. edi torially, upon tho subject. Nevertheless, it is our duty to keep it before the public, to the end of inducing the publication of a full state ment of the condition of their aflairs. and such a change in the deed of trust a* the depositors defire, injustice to themselves. We, therefore, t?>-day publish the two following communica tions : Mr. Editor. The surprise and discontent sterns not to be at ail allay* d by the caid in your puper of the -.iKt ulto , signed Pairo A Nourse. The llrst step towards allaying it should I*- a state ment of the tauMf, or cau?es, which led them to close their doors with ?'?.1W.0UU of depositors' money in their hands. To say nothing of the secret manner In which a conveyance of assets was made, without a con sultation with those who aie as interested as Pairo A Nourse themselves, and have, it is pre sumed. as just a claim to legal pn.tection of their property, let the following questions be answ? red, to counteract "erroneous and malicious reports." Was any run made on your house by deposit ors* Were you unexpectedly called npon to pay any larj,;e sum that you were not prepared for; and, if so. did you make any effort, by loan or otherwise, to meet the pavment and sustain your credit, re lying upon you; solvency which you say is un impaired? If you were not forced to close doors by the de mand of depositors or your inability to meet any large claim, what was the cause of your suspen sion ? * r Till these questions are answered the deposit ors cannot 1* ?ati*tt<d that their property (which, iu many instances, is their all. the earnings of years of severe labor and rigid economy) be transferred to foreign hands, of whose responsi bility they know nothing, and whose relations to one of the Arm of Pairo A Nourse is at least not favorable to his disinterestedness. The moderation and |?alieiice of this commu- J nitv have l**en strikingly illustrated by their calmness while awaiting a statement of which t tnt'tkme is now promised Let thone who re Cognise no rights of others, and feel secure in whatever they may chose to do, remember that forbearance may cease to be a virtue, and justice has claims that cannr-t be di?reg?'ded with Im punity A PaiEXD TO THK DceoSiTORS, AND TO ALL WHO EAKN AN MoSK*T LIVfNC. September ?1, lhi7. F.Uttor of iht Star: Von were right In stating in your Piper, ?ome time since, that there was no run on the Bank of M<8?r?. Pairo A Nourse to cauae their ?ii?|?eiistou.

Depositor* are anxiou* to know wherfUkia monev went to, the purposes it was used w, and whether there is anv truth in a current repo:t that they had determined upon closing business r.s early as last Spring? Let us have the fkcts of the case. A Sufferer. I __ P. S.?Since the above was n print wc have obtained a oopy of the following circular, yes* terday addressed by Pairo and Nourse to their creditors: to otr* CREDITORS. The undersigned respectfully submit the fol lowing statement of their affairs, which, owing to the amount of labor required, and the many in terruptions experienced, they have been unable to do at an earlier moment. The assets have been examined carefully, in detail, and conscientiously valued at amounts which they ought to realize under ordinary circumstances, and which it is believed that they will ultimately yield. The Item of interest on the bills receivable charged up to maturity, is reduced by such an amount as would be an eqnivalent allowance for the unex pired time at d;ite of suspension. Their liabilities are made up with interest added to same date, so that the statement is Intended to show the stateof affairs ou the Uth September, lfc>57. It has been made up carefully, and is believed to be entirely correct; and if any errors eiist, they are of a tri fling nature, and insignificant as regards the gen eral result. The creditors may rest assured that every effort will be used to realize and distribute the assets as fast as the deranged state of the fi nances of the country will admit. In regard to the many vague reports circulated to their prejudice, and |>articulai ly in respect to their having received deposits on the day l?efore their suspension, they interpose a general denial; and if any of their creditors d*slre further inform ation upon these subjects, and will apply to them, they pledge themselves to give full explanations whenever required.
