Our accounts from New Orleans Inst evening are highly important.

The effect of this suspension on the banking institutions of the whole southern and western States will h tremendous. Tins explosion is produced by the want of confidence among the banks themselves?the gross mismanagement of the banking system by insolvent, incompetent and swindling directors, aided by the general distrust of the community in the paper credit sy stem generally. A general repudiation of bank and State debts may now he expected throughout the extreme south?and the revulsion in the cotton market will be tremendous. Every trading operation will be reduced to a cash system?prices will fall?and more failures will take place. The New Orlcuns banks is only following in the -te.H of the laic United States Bank, and the ma iority will probably end as it did. Hut while these in-I inclioly events are taking place the uinusementa of the gay capital of the ?outh g.?e.? on, both on Saturday and Sunday.

The public is hereby untitled that this Bank lias suspended its payments in specie, and will not resume until the 6th 01 December next, the pericd fixed by law. GEO. O. HALL, C ashier. The following are further extracts from New Orleans paper:, describing the state of feeling in thai pleasant capital:? New Orleans, June i. Another Bank Crisis?More ScsrKKiioa.?The Spccic excitement continued throughout the whole of yesterday wiuiout abatement. The crowd at the Consolidated Baal; wms so dense an I eager that the counters gave wa\ lio'ore the pressure, and the presence ol the police became neve tsar) to preserve order. Several persons in urging their way to the paying teller,fainted from exhaustion, being overcome l>> the heat and wrestling with a compact tumu tiiarv multitude. In the midst of the confusion somof th" light fingered gentry corned on a more profitable business than the bill holders of the Banks. By the bye, this run uj on the Banks is furnishing that class of our population with uncommon facilities, which, 11 there be >IU!I in lurn'iH itimuurs, mey are improving to the beat dvantag Notwithstanding the itrong current that act in tvgsinst the Consolidated Association, (he stood her groan ! mantully, and was paying specie tothcaloscol Dusi --shoir-s. ' Krom the statement of her affairs, publishe' n the Courier of yesterday, there should be no doubt 01 the a ulitv of the' institution to sustain resumption equally v- ith Ker sister corporations. Agninst the ( anal Bunk a run commenced early in the day. an for sereral hours was prosecuted with vigor, but to wants the afternoon abated considerably. There was some stir too a* the City Bank, but the supposition is, that nearly as much specie was deposited as was carried off.? On the whole it may be snid, that the run upon the bank9 wa? a decided failure. The attack may be renewed today, but certainly with poor prospects of success. The fueling, we are glad to pcrcieve, is confined chiefly to the poorer an I tr.mscicnt classes of our population. Among the v. ell informed and truly patriotic and public spirited, a strong conti truce is cherished and a resolution not to sactiii he intereitsof the community forthe gratification of u blind avarice or a seltish cupidity. Very little, if anv doubt, need be expressed of the result of the pending struggle. Our institutions publish to the world a table 01 n?'".s equivalent to their liabilities, and if they receive from the cituens generally the support they deserve, there can ne no uncertainty as to tuc continuance of specie pay meat* by the banks of New Orleans.?[Builff in. Juxr a. The run u|>on the Banks continued yesterday w ithout abatement. in consequence, three institutions,'the Consjli-.ned Association, the Commercial, and the Canal, are forced into a cessation of specie pat menls. The remaining five corporation*, viz.: theCity, the Union, the Louisiana, the Mechanics' and Tra erx' and the Carrolton, still hold out manfully, and seem resolved to hold on, to tli- end. There can be little, if any doubt, of their anility to maintain their ground. The circumstances tindee n hieh the recent resumption commenced, were certainly untoward and ill-advised, and to this, more than an? other cause, is to he ascribed the failure. We alluded to the want of confi ience existing among tha Banks themselves. and the hostilitv and jealousy so openly an t frequently displayej. There can he no question hut that, il out institutions had acted in concert and sustained each other, the result of the experiment might have been very ilin'srcnt. As it is, their mutual distrust excited a similar feeling in the public mind. The inevitable conseqeencr ava . a run opon the banks, which none but the strongest of them it able to stand.?[UH.

He was a cannibal of the " first class," and has been out of health since his capture, in consequence of having nothing but roast beef and salt pork to eat. It will be recollected that several years ago, he captured a Salem brig, the Charles Baggett, and took eleven American sailors as pri. soners. These he called " tit bits," which his Fegee Highness and family ate for dinner. It is a pity, in one sense of the word, that Vendovi is dead. He was the only real curiosity brought home by the Exploring Squadron.

Among the passengers arc thirteen of the Santa Fe prisoners, who hare been liberatu.l through the iutervenion of t^c English and other miniitera. We give the name* of Lieut. R. R. Scott, and Mesara. Harrison, Horn, and Bluett, oa among thoae liberated through the oxertiona of Meura. Packenham, Wolfe, Oerlach, Kchart, Hoodie, Miller, Troutx, Mareat, Winkler and Lilly, liberated by the Prussian aud French ministers. We learn that there was but very little yellow fever at Vera t'rur when the Apalachicola sailed. There were also reports in circulation at Vera Cnu and Tampico that the troops in Jalnpo and that vicinity, to the number of some 25,000 hail )>een ordered and were really on the march for Texas. This, however, we dont tielieve. Santa Anna has too much need of these troops nearer home. A correspondent at Vera Crux, under date of the 31st of May, writes as follows :? " The letters from the city of Mexico, by to-day's mail, are void of interest. All Mexico was at San Augustin at the great gambling feast, which took place on the lath, 16th and 17th of this month. His Excellency, the Provisional. was there of course, surrounded by his fighting chickens, (this is his favorite sport,) and taking bets indisf crlminately from the gentleman aud tho lepro.

At Tingauhata, in the state of Michoacan, several subterraneous apartments have been discovered containing idols and other specimens of ancient sculpture, and works in stone.

Before alluding to the petitions, the Court rendered th following DKCISIONS. Edmond II. Miller?In this case there is a fund in th handsof the general assignee for the benefit of the credi tors. On the U3d April the assignee made a report tha he was prepared to make a dividend, and the Court orderei a public notice for creditor! to come in and prove thei debts previously to May II, and directed the assignee ti pay a dividend to all creditors who should come in bofor that time. On the 1st of June the assignee reported th names of creditors who had proved their claims previou to the 11th. On the same day (the 1st) Brown an Wakely proved a debt, and they ask to participate in tha dividend, claiming their right to such until the funds ac tually pass from the possession of the assignee. The at signer, on the contrary, declares that no creditors have right to participate in that dividend but such as hav proved their claims previous to May 11. I am satisfie (said the Court) that the course of the assignee is a correc one. The creditors were sufficiently notified, and it is nc necessary that thev should have special notice. Whe the publications of dividend have been legally madt every creditor has been legally notified ; and if he com in and make proof of his debt, he is entitled to a shan Some creditors say that they intend to resist a dii charge, but can come in for that purpose at an; time. This the Court does not conceive to be the ensi The law provides that a creditor who intends tonvail hirr self of his privileges in relation to a bankrupt, can onl do so by coming in and proving his claim. After he ha done that, the assignee is notified by the clerk, and he i considered in that light. If he docs uot come in at th time legally notified, he precludes himself from the beni fits he would otherwise possess. Without going furthe into the case, it is enough to say that the creditors 1101 claiming cannot he allowed a participation in the first div dend. [Messrs. Dougherty 81 Jones appeared as counsel fa Brown & Wakely, and Messrs. J. L. Mason and P.J. Joi chimssen contra.] Carina P. Houghton.?In this cose there had been an 01 der of reference to u commissioner. The opposing cred tors and the bankrupt both took testimony. Theereditc moves an order from the Court that the commissioner r< port in lull. The commissioner says the report is readj but the bankrupt, ? ! ins part has not paid his ftcs. Th bankrupt thinks that he should not be compelled to pit duce evidence taken. The creditor, I think, has no rig! to invoke the aid of the Court. If he wishes the tcstiinon token on his part to be brought in he is at liberty to do s< on securing the fees. But it may not be for the interest < the debtor that the testimony of his witnesses should b produced. At the same time it does net follow that th Commissioner should lose his compensation. He must b satisfied before a discharge is given. When a creditor ht heard the evidence he can set out his own proof, and mm bring it in at his own expense. [Mr. Sayrefor bankrupt: Mr. Joachimssen for ere tor.] George Richmond.?A decree of bankruptcy in this ca? had been allowed, but objection afterwards urged by hi creditors that no notice had been given to them. All th notice they are entitled to receive previous to a decree i the publication in the pnpen. If a case has been pos poned tor good cause all that they have to do is to look t thedorket. The creditor was wrong in this case. No\ as to the questions of costs?shall they be allowed. Th [lourt, afier remarks, stated that whatever expense was ir surrcd by a creditor, and costs were allowed tohim.th amount should be added to his demand against the ban 1 rupt's estate; and the expenditures by a bankrupt i meeting objections, when decreed costs, should go as a iffset and be subtracted from the creditor's claim. Cost to be ullowed and taxed, and applied to the debtor. [Mr. Dresser for creditor. Messrs. Cook and Joachimsse lor bankrupt.] DccRcr. of Fixal Discharge.?The Court stated] thi his is the first day in which notices had expired for lina lischargcs. Under the law a party cannot, on the fin lay, get his final decree. TheCourt must be officially ad ised that all 1ms been done to answer the law, and sue! nuit be through the clerk and the assignee. The part; mist be discharged on petition, which cannot be presente ill the time has run out. He then files his petition, ii vhich he states that lie has complied with the order an he law, and it is referred to the clerk to report whether najjrity in amount of his creditors have filed objection) >r otherwise. If the creditors oppose, the subject mui ic referred to another tribunal, and another mode of pr< 'railings be taken. If no objections have been urged b he majority, the bankrupt, alter report to that effect, i lischarged! Mr. Western inquired when the petition could be filed The Court replied that it could be to instantcr if th lartics wished. Mr. W. stated that in one of the cases where notice hai tin out to-day, there is an utter inability to furnish $1 equircd by "the assignee. It is that of David Barnett rhere has been no expense whatever in the case, and n issets, yet the assignee says you must pay me $16, or yoi vill not have your discharge. I would submit whethe n such a case as the present, where the counsel must b lefeatedor put his hand in his own pocket, if the assigne ihould not be compelled to make return without the $11 ithorwlse the petitioner is defeated, although he is jui <uch a man ns Congress intended should he cleared. Th rule of the Court says "necessary sum," and I submit the charge of the assignee in such a case should notb merely nominal. TheCourt, in reply, said that it is not with the aisignci any more than with the clerk, to make a mere nomini charge. If the bankrupt thinks there has been a wron charge he must bring the subject before the Court, whic can decide in relation to it. The trouble might not l worth more than! $6, and iCmight be worth $60. A regards the Bankrupt Act I do not think it a proper oneEvery provision in it goes upon the principle that th bankrupt has something w hich can be surrendered, and h was to ho discharged but upon the condition that he shoul surrender property. The idea prominent in the act, an running through it is that there nre no mendicants appl; ing in bankruptcy, but that all have something whic they must rive up. 1 cannot listen, therefore, to the ov dence that the man is actually poor. If he can take u 'his act and pav the expenses he is at liberty to do so. 'he court could compel the assignee and the clerk to po form the service for nothing,! the large number of ban! rupts in this district and throughout the United Btati would probably claim to be passed upon those terms. N such law has been promulgated.

I ames Gordon Bennett, Esq. : Dear Sir:?A long time having passed away -inee I have communicated any thing for publication in your popular and widely circulated journal; ind as the doings in our beuutiful city of the West uave been for some weeks almost entirely neglect d by other more talented correspondents, I again match a few moments from my business to address y.at touching the most important matters of interest to your numerous readers. Since my last the lovely spring time has again rei turned, and our active business men are again employed in the varied and perplexing pursuits of money getting. Since the opening of business here this spring, almost every department of industry, (embracing trade and commerce,) has been much more active than many who affect great wisdom anticipated; and the present indications for a prosperous season and abundant crops in this ra' gion, I am happy to say, are far from unfavorable. ! Our city is gradually recovering from the effects of the mad speculating mania of "35 and '36, and, so far as I am able to judge, the march of improvement is onward. No fancied fortunes are made bei fore breakfast in these times, and men who arc really worth fifty thousand dollars consider them, selves comfortably situated. It was not so in former a days. A man must be worth millions?suj>port a * handsome equipage?indulge in all kinds of folly ? and extravagance, and move in the highest circles jJ of society, (the present bankrupts,) to win the favor and confidence of the aristocracy of the city. But, * alas! how changed is the general aspect of affairs! e The great bubble has been burst, and men are begin<1 ning to see things as they really exist. There are :t men in this city whose wealth at that time was >t considered almost princely, actually employed in n the capacity of bar tenders, and in dealing out ;; small beer to those whom, during their prosperity, ? they would hardly look at. Many new and beautiful buildings are now in progress of erection, the v most extensive of which is a large and commodi.. oushotel near the Niagara Falls Rail Road Depot, i- to be called the "Grant Western." This house has y been erected by one of our most wealthy citizens, !? Hon. Albert H. Tracy, and is to he occupied by " Mr. Hathaway, the late proprietor of the Mansion ? House. The Mansion House, one of the oldest and f," most respectable houses in the city, has recently unK dergone thorough repairs, and is now keot by Mr. i- P. Doreheineio, our late Post Master. Mr. D. is a German, and on one occasion said, "in case he t should be removed from office, he should have to ? go to keeping tavern like h?11 to make a living." He has accordingly commenced the business, and r.' will doubtless receive the patronage he merits. " Many of our smaller houses, for their own interest ... I presume, have abandoned the sale of ardent spirits, ana are going "their death" for the cause of < temperance. This is all vary well, but so far as I > un concerned, though I am not a lover of any >t kind of alcohol, I should by all means, were I y travelling, avoid a temperance house. ' Nothing new I believe has transpired here of late " in financial matters. Some of the greatest scoundrels with which our city and county has been inl(1 tested, have been compelled, fearing the conseis quences of crime and knavery, if arrested and u dealt with according to the effended laws, to "leave their country for their country's good;" and it is earnestly hoped that such men, who have done . _.L: ?JJ i : i..., i Jiuuiiiig ^ iu nuu iu uui general jirusjirniy, uui nuvtr * been living in magnificent style upon their ill-gotten treasures, filched from the more industrious portion I, of the community, may never return to disgrace our t- State prison by their presence. In reference to it our circulating medium, I have but little to say. ? Oluo and Canada paper is rather plenty here, and is e at a discount of 3 per cent. We nave but little Michigan or Illinois money in market, and that little, 1 I believe, has somewhat improved of late. There J] are, however, but few banks doing business in the former State, and a less number in the latter. s Little ofinterest is transpiring among our leading politicians at present. And little of importance apa aears to be going on at Washington for the particular benefit of that class of men who wi-li to head off" 'J Captain Tyler. The truth is, the Whigs have been , sadly disappointed in their man, since his elevation j_ to the Presidency, and many are now determined h* to oppose his administration, right or wrong. , Nothing new in relation to our religious circles i has developed itself this spring, and a general dearth, n or a state of lukewarmness, seems to prevail in that department of society. The Universal Society has 8 recently revived to some extent, and a new minis' ter from the cast is soon to be located here. A y talented clergyman of that order will no doubt , build up the society, and make that church decideda ly popular among our citizens. Any minister, however, who comes here with the expectation of 1 doing good, should by all means avoid such men as e Baker, and a few others who wish to rule the society for their own especial interest. The temperance cause here, as in your city, appears to be going ahead with railroad speed, and a zreat and miahtv revolution is taking place in uli u parts of the country. It is a good cause, and will do r much to relieve thousands, who for years have e drank deep from the fountains of poverty. It is, pere haps, as vou have suggested in the Herald, the comb mencement ol the millennium. " s As usual at this season of the year, our theatre and I* public places of resort are now open for the recep,e tion of company. The theatre, I am informed by Mr. R ice, has been doing a very fair business this l\ season, under his management. Mr. R. has secured il the services of several very popular stock iictors, S and during the season will entertain our citizens by h the production of numerous new and highly inter,e eating pieces never performed in this city. To bring ^ ihctn out in a style hitherto unsurpassed, several of ~ the most celebrated tragedians have been engaged. ,e The most delightful place of resort, however, is Id "Cottage Garden," the former residence of Dr. id Johnson. This establishment has been fitted up in y elegant style by Mr. Hart, and will afford, during b the summer months, one of the most lovely retreat.in the United States. The grounds are tastefully '{I laid out, and the garden is adorned with many of r. the rarest flowers and plants to be found in this t. country. A circular railroad has been added to the m beautiful Park attached to the premises, and the to whole is arranged in a style that entitles the proprieet tor to the patronage of nis fellow citizens. Good music has been secured, and will be in attendnnce * every pleasant evening, and all kinds of refresh ments (ardent spirits excepted) may be proenred at (i'_ the shortest notice at all times. Arrangements have r" also been made for the accommodation of a few 10 genteel boarders, who will find this one of the most i- agreeable places of residence in our city, h, In the literary world, so far as we are concerned, 1 >y have but little to communicate. The arts and sci onoes, however, appear to keep pace with other inutJJ| tent around us, and it will be onlymstice to say that ^ our city is favored with some of the most nistin^r. guisheil artists in the country. I would speak in h,. particular of Mr. Wilgus, the portrait painter, and im Or. Rurwell, the dagucrrcotypisil, who has been emto ployed for some time in bringing this art to perfecp" tion. Some of the finest specimens of painting ever executed in this country may be found at the rooms of Mr. VV., and some of the most perfect x. pictures ever taken in any city, may be seen at the 0f rooms of Dr. B. By the way, I should not forget tc ia- notice Mr. Orr. the wood engraver, who, so far as I re- am able to judge, stands at the head of his prolesad .-ion. Mr. 0. nas recently published an excellent " book, which should be in the possession of every tourist and visitor to the Falls of Niagara. It is designed as a guide to strangers, nnd embraces every thing of interest nround and in the vicinity of thu cn stupendous cataract. It is embellished with numer ous engravings by Mr. O , and is a beautiful speci nd men of typography. The weather in this vicinity.during the past month has been unusually cold and disagreeable. At pre '* sent, however, it is'quite pleasant, and vegetatiot of lias taken a new start. Our post oilier building, recently erected by tlu department, under the management of Dr. Hadduck in bus been finished in good style, and is very convent re enlly arranged for the business; nnd in justire t< ng the iloetor (though I did not like his appointment; die 1 must say, so fur its 1 nut capable ofjudging, thu he manages the business most admirably.

[Corrtspondruce of the Herald.] Washington, Friday?3 P.M. Pro?H4ln|i la Congress?New Plan to head Capt. Tyler, The morning business in the Senate was,as usual, of no particular importance. Mr. Merrick called up t bill to provide for the payment of some ten 01 twelve cleiks employed temporarily in the Post Of nee uepariment. .vir. cevicr inougm some iuci unces might be necessary in the several department and he hoped that Mr. Morehead, who had raised a select retrenchment committee, would give his attention to the subiect. He had supposed that reform was in full blast, in accordance with the profession of the whigs. Mr. MoREHE>n replied that the committee could effect nothing without the concurrence of the depart meats. He insisted that the committee hadno party object to accomplish, and that they merely desired to ascertainwhether the interests of the countryrequired retrenchment. But from the tone ofMr.M.'s remarks, he evidently has no idea that any considerable retrenchment can be effected consistently with a proper discharge of the public business. The bill was finally passed without serious opposition. The apportionment bill was then taken up,and the vote of yesterday, adopting the amendment of Mr. Benton, providing that the districts shall be of the same size, or as " near as may be," was reconsidered. This opened the whole matter anew, and the debate is now in full progress. The high tariff Whigs in the House are about to realize the idea of the Bong which speaks of a man who digged a pit for his brother and fell into it himself. They have set a trap for the President, in which tl ey are like to be caught themselves. Four or five days ago, Mr. Fillmore, from the committee of Ways and Means, reported a bill to xtend the present laws for laying nnd collecting duties on imports. The bill provided? " That all laws existing and in force on the first of June, eighteen hundred and forty-two, regulating and fixing tne amount and rate ofduties to be levied and collected on goods, wares, and merchandise, imported into the United Stutes, and prescribing the mode of collecting the same, and all provisions relating thereto, shall continue and ue in force as they existed on that day, until the first day of August, eighteen hundred and fortytwo, and no longer; any thing in the act entitled ' An act to modify an act of the fourteenth day of July, one thousand eight hundred and thirty-two, and all other acts imi>oaing duties on imports,' approved March second, eighteen hundred and thirty three, to the contrary in any wise notwithstanding." This bill was referred to the committee of the whole with the expectation that it would be acted upon in the course of the week, llut a new thought struck the party, and two days after it was reported, Mr. Fillmore, in obedience, as is understood, to the mandates of a caucus, got the bill referred back to the Ways and Means Committee, andyesterday morning it was reported again with the adoption of the following^TOciw;? "Provided. That nothing herein containedjshall suspend the distribution of the proceeds of the public lands, anything herein contained, and any thing contained in the proviso to the sixth section of the act approved fourth September, eighteen hundred and forty-one, entiled 'an act to a| propriate the proceeds of the sales of the public lands, and to grant pre-emption rights,' to the contrary notwithstanding." The object of this after thought, is manifest to all, notwithstanding the studious effort to conceal the real intention. Thejpurpose is to commit the President to the distribution principle, and hence this insidious movement. Without some legislative action, there will be no law for collecting or imposing duties, after the 30th of the present month. Every body sees that it will be impossible to pass a revenue bill in twenty day*, so the extension of the present laws is indispensable. But the whigs, in violation of their pledge at the extra session, and contran to|the understanding and wishes of the peoplet are determined to have distribution ut all hazards. So they have taken in this proviso, thinking to force the President into an ap proval of the bill; but they are probably as much mistaken in his character now, as they were when they thrust a bank uill upon him. If the bill shall be sent to him in its present shape, he will probably re turn it with a declaration, that while he is ready to approve any revenue or tariff bill which Congress may pass, he cannot sanction a violation of the pledge given at the extra session, that there should be no distribution when the necessities of the government caused the imposition of duties above twenty per fcent. In such an avent, the tariff men wouldjnot dare, for the mere purpose of embarrassing the administration, to abstain from action, and permit the country to be flooded with goods, duty free, and they would pass the extension bill without the prcviso at once, striking out the limitation, and the whole matter would go over to the next session.

The message of Oovernor Porter to the adjourned sit ting of the legislature was sent to that body yesterday and was published in two or three of the morning paper of this city to-day. It is short, but most urgent on th legislature to provide means to meet the States indebted nets, and especially to pay domestio creditors. He al ludes to the indisposition to increase the taxes of the pec pie, hut says it is the only means whereby to save th credit and character of the Commonwealth. He als< urges the disposal of the stock held by the Statu in th Pennsylvania and Philadelphia Banks. The effect of this message, or something else, was to pit up the price of State Fives two to three dollars per sharesome ten thousand dollars sold at 45. In other stocks no much was done at the board, nor was there much chang In prices. The failure of the New Orleans Banks created som feeling and much disappointment here. The hope wa entertained by all the friends of specie payments, thi these New Orleans banks might maintain their speci stand, and form a nucleus around which the solvent bank of the south and west might rally, and together farm currency that would drive the insolvent institutions inl liquidation.
