Ford, Esqon the subject of a theatre for Washington city. W e need hardly say that Mr Ford ia a perron in whose business engagements all who know him have entire confidence. He id, in our judgment, the man of all men for the enterprise. His plan, however, does not strike us ?a being feasible. That is, that it can be completed in time for the business of the so near ut hand season. Our belief is that it will be best to remodel the in terior of some one of the well situated and large halls of the city, erecting stage, two tiers of lioxes and parquette within it. making it capable of holding comfortably about half the audicnce that the old National could hold on a pinch That might easily be accomplished in a month for one-half tha money necessary ac cording to this plan of our friefhl Ford. But we are glad that he is disposed to engage in such an enterprise, and will with pleasure be come the medium of communication between him and those of our fellow-citixens disposed to aid him in it: BtLriMoRi.

Waliach, Ksq Bricitam Yorsc Axswkrcd.?Not long since we published a brief synopsis of a communica tion from the ex-officio Superintendent of Indi an Affairs in Utah, Brigham Young, to the Commissioner of Indian Atlairs. much of which was a tissue of unfounded complaints and ac cu-ation* against the Government generally, and the Bureau particularly Subsequently, Mr Commissioner Denver has taken occasion to reply to that paper We make the follow ing extract from his (General Denver's) reply, for the information of the Star's reidjrs : ?? Ofirice Commissioner Indian Affairs, ) '? \\ ashington, Nov. 11, 1?57. } '?Sir : Your communication of the 12tb of last Septembei has bet n received, and would not re quire a formal reply weie it not for the etfort you make to place this cilice in the wrong, when, in tact, whatever dilhculties exist have resulted froiu your own conduct. As the Superintendent of Indian Atlaiis for I'tah Territsry, it was your duty to keep a *ii|>ervi*ory control over the'dif terent agents, and to see that they did not exceed their authority. It was your dutv also to notify thein of all things pertaining to their duties, and especially to keep them in their expenditures wuhin the appropriations made for your superin tendency. Their reports were made to you. and by you transmitted here. You cannot, therefore, plead ignorance of their transactions Knowing, then, the amount of the appropriations, and be ing fully advised of the attairs of the agents, and that money could not be taken out of the treasuiv without an act of Congress, you have allowed the drafts to exceed the appropriations to the amount of SJl.fc-O 50 to the close of tbe lis al year ending :iotn June. l-a7. When the agents were notitied that their drafts could not be pud in consequence of the appropriations having o-en exhaust* d. and rebuked for exceeding them, they replied that they had no information from you on the subject These communications pasted through your hands, and yet you seem to h tve passed them by unnoticed. With a full know ledge. then, of all the facts, you took no steps, so far as this office i* informed, to protect the pub lic interests, or to keep your subordinates within the proper sphereof their duties. Ou the contrary, you seem to dave been disposed to encour.ve ihe e things, as is evidenced in your orders la Agent Hurt, sending him to Carson's Valley at a heavy expense to the (ioverniiient, When it was well known that tlie seivic.es of an agent were hot lequired in that quarter; and again, when you titled out an expedition yourself, and con ducted it northward out of youi superintendence* to give presents to Indians not under your con trid F.um all this it follows that if your drafts are not paid you have no right to complain, be i ause you knew at the time that the appropria tions on Which they were <i>.iv%i> Weie exhausted. " Hut even if tue money was in the treasury ready for the Indian service in I tab. I do not see how it can l?e applied to the payment of your dr-.fta until they shall have ll;st passed through the strictest sciutiny. for this department has in formation leliable sources that, so f.ir from eucouiaging amicable ulations l**tween the In di. us ai.d tlie people of the I nitfcd States, out side of your own immediate community, you have studiously endeavoied to impress on the minds cf the Ind'.ins that there was a diflWe ice bet ween your own sect, u-nallv known a* M ?r iitons. and the government ami other citizens of tiie I :iit.-d Stales, that the fo.mer were th-ir 1 ieuds and the latter their enemies In addition to this, you have been denouncing this govern iiien', and threatening an armed iesi.stance to the juthorlties sent out by the President. Indeed, unleks you and your coadjutors Are most grossly misrepresented, and youi language misquoted, the appearance t.f those authorities among you is ail that is necessary to prompt you to an overt a t of treason. It could never have been intended when the appropilatious were made by Congress that the money should lie used in arousing sav age* to war against our own citizens, or to enable ^ subo d.nate officer to carry on treasonable piac lices against ^i* own government. The rule of th:? cffice Is to withhold annuities fioni the In dians whenever they place themselves in a hos tile o. antagonistic attitude towa.d* the govern ment; and 1 know of no reason why the same rule should not be applied to you at this time; lint as the appropriat.oii has been exhausted, it is not nece?sa. y to consider that question now '? Vou say ? the troops must l?e kept away, for it is a prevalent fart tli.it wheiever thr-ie are th** most of these we may expe< t to And the gieatest aiiiouiit of hostile Indians, and the lea?t security for persons and property.' The tioops are under the direction of the 1'iesident, and it is f*ir to presume that he would not send them to I'tah Territory unless there wa* a necessity for so do ing ; aud if it be true that wherever the greatest number of troops are there are to be foTind the greatest number of hostile Indians, it arises from tne fact that the troops are necessary at such places to preserve the peace and to keep the In dians in subjection There is no reason why persons and property should be any the less se cure in the neighborhood of the troops, nor 1* theie any reason why ytattnUt citizens should object to theif presence If it is your intention to preserve peace, the troops will not interfere with you; but if you intend otheiwise, then it is necessary that the troops should lie on the ground to enforce it. " It is much to lie regretted that such a state of aiTdrs should exist, and it Is always with great reluctance that we arrive at the conclusion that American citizens should al any time require the st'orig arm of power to compel obedience to the I'Ws, or that a subordinate officer should so far lorget his duty as to use his official position to li>lu.e one poition of his fellow-citizens and to at ft-?ate another portion from lovalty to their gov ernment Hut. when convinced of the existence tf such/acts, the Chief Kxecutive ha* no alter native lejt but tu crush out rebellion, and for this purpose all the powers of tbe government are placed under his control." Ba*ks and Baskiko ?Don t start, reader ^c are not abouttoiniiictoii you a prosy chap ter upon the rise, theory and practice of bank ing We however, find in a late Washington letter in the Courier and Enquire,, a synop sis of the report on the condition of tbe banks of the United States made by Mr Guthrie and now just printed, which in these times ea pecially, is fall of interest to the business man So wc accordingly transfer it to the Star '.? col umns as follows: " WAaaivoTox, Nov 7 "Among tbe last acts of .Mr (jut brie was to com municate to Congress the Aiiuuai Keport ou the condition of the iKiuk* of the l.'uitea States. It has just been printed, and contains many inter esting facts " According to returns received nearest to Jan uary I, lc57, the number of banks in all the Htates aud Territories was 1,410, showing an Increase of l? during the year 1*5U There were besides a hanks from which no returns were received kank capital durin/ the year was MS,900,414. The amount at uear the date of the repott was ta70.**,o*i Tbe amount of loans and discounts was ?U*4,4MJ,&tj7, being an tncreaaa of ?60,<7:j,0u7. The circulation waa m?

The aggrebate ascer tained capital of the Chartered and unchartered banks is *195,^34.000, though the returns of the banks do not distinguish tl>e gold from the silver in their specie tablet*, but the Secretary estimate* that silver does not constitute over one seventh of the whole. "A comparison of the bank returns at different period* for the last twenty years, present inter esting results. In 1*^17 th*- expansion of the bank ing system, owing to the pet bank and deposite schemes of the Jackson administration, had reached its greatest height There we e then 788 banks and brauches. whose circulation was 8119.1=5.?!*); specie *37.915,310: deposites. 91*27. 397,000; loans and discounts, $5*25,115,702. Com ing down to our time, the number of chartered au<l private banks in 1837 Is exactly doubled since 1*47. Numerically, therefore, the banks have Just kept pace with the population,which twenty years since was 15,<>00,(Ml, and is now 30.000,000. lint in other respects the banking business was vastly more inflated and unsound than now. For example, the circulation was then within a frac tion of ten dollars per head of population, it is now but seven dollars per head. In 1837 the spe cie of the hanks was as one dollar to four of their circulation?it is now as 3 60 to one. The loans and discounts of 1837 were as thirty-five to one of imputation. Bank capital In *37 was about S*20 per head?it Is now but ?14.33. The public stocks held by the bsnks in 1**37 amounted to twelve and a half millions; In 1857 to nearly sixty millions. '?The period of greatest depression in Banking since the destruction of the Bank of the United States, was in lii43, when the anti-bank and free trade furor had reached its culmination, and produced its most disastrous effects. Though the population of the country had increased fully twenty-five per cent. since 1H37, the number of banks had declined from 788 to 091, their capital had fallen sixty-two millions, or more than twen ty per cent., their circulation had decreased to fifty-eight millions, or over sixty per cent., and their loans and discounts $270,000,000, or more than SO per cent '?The infiux of California gold ma:ked the lie ginniiisj of a period of great activity in Banking.

' During the twelve months ending about Mav lasi there was great activity iu the location of land warrants; and vet this table shows that of ?26. < 10.670 acres issued under the act of 1855, only 15,770.*230 acres have been located, leaving still floating in the market 10.1M0,440 acres. If we add to this amount the number of acres unlo r ated under other acts, we flnd a grand total of 13,609,849 acres still outstanding. From an examination at the General Land Of fice it appears that there is a comparatively small amount of good land subject to private entry. We hear of no lands that will likely be brought into market in any of the new Territories, the |>olicy of the Government being to favor pre cmptors. In Kansas and Nebraska nearly every quarter section that is desirable lias been taken up by act ml settlers, and hence it is not likely any lands in these Territories will be offered for sale at private entry Wecanaot perceive any thing in the future, therefore, to promise soon a hi iterial advance iu the piiceof warrants, espe cially as the issue, to say nothing of the large surplus outstanding, continues in excess of the demand. If Congress make thein receivable on railroad grants, which is confidently believed, it would have an .immediate tendency to increase the demand and price. litsT ok Patents.?The following is the list of Patent* issued from the United States Patent Officc, for the week ending ^'ov. 10, 1857?each bearing that date: Ilenry Bates, of New London, Conn ?For im provement in projectiles.

We have to-day hut room to call public attention to the fact that the comments of | that journal on the subject evidently emanate from some clique of city property speculators disappointed by the action of the Department in locating the new city Post Office in Second street, under circumstances that made it the Postmaster General's duty to his trust to do so. The fact, as alleged by the Ledger itself, that the Philadelphia members of the House of ] Representatives heartily endorse the propriety of the selection, will satisfy any disinterested person that the best interests of their constit uents were consulted in maki ng it. New York.?It continues questionable yet. whether the Republicans have not secured a majority in the newly-elected Legislature of New York. So great is the existing uncertain ty?lioth parties claiming the victory?as that it will require a showing of hands in voting on the organisation to know where more or less members of both bouses propose to stand po litically. enough individual members being claimed by all three parties to turn the scale aj they may elect. This is the result of the transition condition of New York politics.

The New York papers stale that the gathering of the unemployed in the City Hall Park yestei day morning was not so large as on former occa sions ; neither was the excitement *o great. Soon afier 10 o'clock. Columbia Kngine No. 14 was stationed in front of the City Hall, for the purpose of having a photograph taken. The crowd amused themselves looking at It until the arrival of the operator, at about II o'clock, when he commenced and finished the work. That, and taking a photograph of a file of Policemen, o copied the time until near noon, when the hun gry men retired for dinner. Tuesday afternoon the crowd upon the Park be came quite disorderly, and an attempt to make a speech was suppressed. Between two and three o'clock the police sallied out with their clubs and cleared the steps, which were densely crowd ed, in double quick time. The fellows ran as though they had never threatened, and the panic spread far back into the crowd. Another meeti ng was held in Tompkins Square Tuesday, where very Inflammatory speeches were made om! great confusion prevailed. A man named Case, having inouuted the chair, declared that capital rolls in luxury while labor starves in ganets, arid that in his opinion there was no re medy for this but in a social revolution, sealed in blood- He denounced some of the leaders of the -movement asselflsh politicians. A crowd of unemployed workmen and loafers, assembled in Tompkins Square to hear the usual oratorical performances No set speeches were made, and the people, as a mats, were pacifically disposed?but a party of rowdies rushed Into the neighboring streets and robbed three baker's carts, carrying off all the bread, and fighting for It among themselves Several persons were con siderably knocked about in the melee?but r* raped with little damage. The crowd at the height of their wild humor caught a couple of German musicians, hemmed them in, and made them play for the popular enleitaininent, assuring them that Mayor Wood would pay all the ex penses The Fnlted States troops were yesterday dis missed from the Custom House. Tn? Timt* says; "At 10 o'clock this morning, the various fed ? ?l ^teirs of tbe port of New Yoi^, United St?f?r Marshal Rraders last, but not least. amon; thein?had a consultation at the Collector* pri vate otflce, relative to the retention of the I nited states troops in tbe Custom House "The opinion w?w nuanlmous that their pres ence V3? needed no longer, and. in short, that the talked-of attack and aelgureapon the Govern ment specie wi? not at all likely to be attempted. An order was nr cording !y given to the officers in command of the troop* to withdraw them from tbe Custom-house. and retcr.i to tbelf respective headquarters at the Navy Yard and Governoi's Island. ??At 11 o'clock the troops w?9 properly mar. ?hailed and marched out iroiu the Custom-hous? basement. They prneet ded down Wall street with the utmost quiet. The people in the ?treet noticed them scarcely more than they would a target company. All who did notice tuem com mented upon the whole thing as a stupendous farce. The poor marines and troops looked as though they hid passed a hard night in their crampeil-up quarters and weie glad enough to get where they would Im? more comfortable and n have something besides stale pilot-bread to eat, and something softer than the hard side of a board for lodgiogs." The hungry meetings have extended to New ark and Philadelphia, but are in a much more moderate tone than here, owing to the better feeling and better sense manifested by Mayor Vaux in the last named city. The renolutions adopted in Philadelphia were as follows : " K'solved, That we meet together to devise tn-an* for otor mutual relief, and for the relief of wives and children. " Resolved. That we will not stand by and hear our children crying for bread, without the means of relieving the cravings of nature at a times when God has blessed our land with an abundance of all the necessaries of life."' A resolution was adopted thanking .Mayor Vaux far the course recommended by him in bis late message to Councils From all accounts, Philadelphia Is about as badly ol!" as New York. A letter on the subject of the Philadelphia Post office, from the Post master General, contains the following : Senator Hitler has written me, that he neverl witnessed so sad a prospect for the laborers and mechanics of Philadelphia, as at present," and concluded by saying "that immediate commence ment of the Work would afford employment to many laborers and mechanics who would, in this way, be enabled to maintain their families du ring the winter. Nothing short of an insur mountable obstacle should, therefore, it seems to me, delay the work longer." 1 liaye uo doubt of the correctness of these gloomy anticipations, and. like these gentlemen, the P'esident and his Departments feel great anxiety to do all in their power to favor the la borers and mechanics in taking care of them selves and families in the disastrous convulsions through which they have to pass the coming winter. The Philadelphia workingmen held a second meeting, Tuesday, aad violent remarks were made there in regard to the banks. The follow ing resolutions among others, were adopted : R'solved, That we recommend our city corpo ration to issue four millions of doilarsnf city war rants, as follows: one million of one dollars, one million of two dollars, one million of three dol lars, and one million of four dollars. Rtsolved, That we recommend the warrants specified shall be- a legal currency to be paid out and received at par for all debts due by or to said city corporation. Resolved, That we recommend to our citizsns to receive and pay out at par said warrants for all business transactions. On motion, a committee of twenty-four were appointed to wait on the Mayor to ask him to use bis influence in calling a meeting at Independ ence Square on Thursday. It was also voted that the workingmen assem ble in their respective wards, and proceed, in a body, to the Square At Newark the meeting in front of the Market House was attended by a thousand persons, and the Germans ha<l a separate meeting. We quote briefly from the speeches : A speaker, evidently English, then took the stand He had listened to the proceedings, but had seen no prospect of getting labor or food '? While the g/ass i* growing the ho;se is starv ing " Hunger will drive men to desperation, and then what will men not do? He would sayi oliey the laws, keep peaceable and orderly; but "if something is not done to give us work or food, something violent will take place [Applause } He would lie the last to advise that, but vou mav carry patience too f.tr. When there is starvation in the ruidst of plenty, he would blame any man who died of starvation A man has told us we ought to go West. [15a. ba] Why. if we should, our places would have i?eeii tilled with other la borers from abroad Th?city authorities ought to furnish means of relief, and every man would bv .satisfied with very little; but it is useless to ciy patience to hungry men. (A voice cried. Yes. we'te bound to eat. anyhow ] At this point Mr. Anneke rose, and stated that there were many Germans present; and these withdrew under Mr. Anneke's lead Mr Grover C. Stewart then spoke again, but was interrupted several times by cries of "Get down?we don't want to bear you.'* He then said he bo|>ed the meeting would have enough American spirit to allow f.ee discussion. A Voice ?If we Lad American spirit we would fight tor bread. fTJT ATTENTION PR h SIDKNT'SMOKN T _ El) CjCaE1>!?\ ou sr.* hereby notified to st tend a monthly meet 1114 of tlie Corps TO-MOR KOW KVK.MNG.at 7 o'clock, Hk business of tn? greatest importance wiii be laid before the C? mpa ny.
