No man has hud more experience of the ups and downs of financial life?of the turns and twistings of politicians? of the adulation and execration of the public goose, than this same Mr. Hiddle has had duriug his past life. He has possession of the materials that constitute the philosophy ol life. Let us hear him. The following is his first letter:? Letters from Mr. Nicholas Middle.?No. 1. Andalusia, Nov. 31, 1343. When tho state is in trouble, every citizen, however humble, who thinks he may be useful,'should hasten to ita relief. Tkecondition of Pennsylvania, already very em. barrassing?may soon become disastrous, and 1 therefore venture to putlorth from my retirement, a few thoughts on her present position. 1 Jo this the more willingly, hecause iu the absence of higher qualifications, I am conscious af at least ]>erfect impartiality. 1 have never owned, nor do I now own, a single dollar of the Statu Debt. I was not in the Legislature during the time when uny of it was contracted, nor have I any personal or politicul relations with any parlies to bias my judgment. 1 ijieak therefore only as a citirenof Pennsy fvania,anxious for ita prosperity, and jealous of its honor,both of which are thought to be ui jeopardy. 1 begin by declaring that my own examination of the subject, has brought me to these conclusions. I believe that Pennsylvania was led into her large scheme ot internal improvements, by the recommendatloh and tho ex|>ected assistance of the Uenerai Ctovernment. I believe that iu the construction and administration ot these works, she has committed many errors and indiscretions, but these were incident to the infancy of all great enterprises, and she has made no mistake which she cannot repair, and committed no indiscretion for which she is not able and willing to atone. AnJ Anally, 1 believe that he is equally able and willing to discharge honorably uvery dollar of her present liabilities. Thcso opinions I shall endeavor to justify by examining what is the ical condition of the state, and her conduct towards her creJitors?how she got into these ditliculties ?and how she can get outot them , and, First ?what is the condition and the conduct ol the am- .n..ak;n?a.-..hi:. .i-v.* i Her position is simply this She owes a debt, contracted chietiy to make her internal improvements, of more than thirty-nine millions of dollars .composed ol the following sums. 0 per cents $1,8.19,069 37,5 per cents $31,788,187 10; 4^ per Cents $100,000 ; 4 per cents (temporary) $15,000?making a total of $34,811,118 47?bearing an interest of $1,659,981 07. 1.

Theru has also been rece vrd, under the Distribution Aotof Congre-s, $3,867,51476, to which has been recently added uuother receipt of about $63,000, but these require no provision lor interest, nor is it probable that the State will bo called upon to reimburse them.

In this statement there may be room for some changes, but for the present inquiry, it is sufficient to speak of the debt of Pennsylvania, as being thirty-nine millions, two hundred anil sixty-two dollars, being an interest ol eighteen hundred and sixty-lour thousand dollars. At the last semi-annual |iay day on the 1st of August, he had not the means of pay ing the interest in cash?but paid it in certificates ol stock bearing six per cent interest, and payable within a year. The default of course tiecame the subject of universal alarm, and as from present appearances she will not have the means of paying the in terest in February next, the general anxiety about the debt increases, and a vague terror prevails that not merely the interest will be sulfersd to go into arrear?but that the whole of the debt will be disowned ; and there has arisen ono universal shout of indignation sgaiust the bad faith of Pennsylvania. These alarms and these reproaches are in my judgment, equally unfounded; for the amount of this debt is not great when compared with the debt of other countries. We owe?let us say?forty millions? but England, instead of forty millions, owe* nearer four thousand miiiionsof dollars, and Great Britain and Ireland together are not three times as large as Pennsylvania, and in all thaelements of their prosperity, Pennsylvania has five times as much coal and iron, quite as goad, far more easily worked, and with easier means of access and transportation. With natural advantages far inferior to Pennsylvania, France has a debt of a thousand millions, and every Frenchman and every Englishman has about ten times as much interest to pay as every Pennsylvanian has. And the difterence between the debu is this; that while the French and English debts have been wholly spent and gone, leaving uothiog behind them, the Pennsylvania debt has beeu employed in the improvement of the state, and coutributes its part to the payment of this tax. Thru gain, these forty millions of dollars we shall never be called upon to pay, untilthe State is ready to pay The obligation is that you are not to pay it belore a given year, but if then you are not ready, you need not pay?the creditor himself waating nothing but his interest, and you may wait untilthe population of the State is doubled or trebled, every year giving the State additional wealth and increased population to help in paying the debt. All that is wautod, therelore, is to raise this in terest of $1 ,$04,100 But as the works themselves will undoubtedly yield a large and yearly increasing income? which cannot be estimated at less fir the year 1*43 than MO,000 The real sum to be raised from other sources, is only [$1,300,000 Now Pennsylvania contains, according ,to the last census, 1,704,033,and according to the settled ratio of increase her population tor 1343, is f,330,000. Tne whole question, then, of the public debt of Pennsylvania, is the ability and the inclination of these 1,330,(too |ktsoiis, until the public works yield an increased income to pay every year $1,300,000, that is to say, seventyone rents a head. How this can be readily done, I will explain herealtcr? hut in the mean time, let us pursue the inquiry as to the conduct of the State and of her creditors. Ifplo August, 1842. the interest on the debt had been paid not merely with promptness, but with a punctilious regard to the interest or the creditor, not certainly shown by any other government. For when the Banks of the State suspended specie payments, she passed a law on June 12, 1*40, by which the State went back to repair the losses which the holders of her stock had sustained, in " consequence of the payment of the interest on said stocks in a currency of less value than gold or silver"? 1 and having paid back to them $S2,N07 40, lor that purpose ?enacted that hereafter the interest should "always he paid In specio or its equivalent i" and thut whenever the funds in the Treasury were not equal to specie, the Governor sheuld pay to the croditor " the dillerencc in value between par futu.s nn.l specie." Atthe same lime,on the llth of June 19-10, the State laid the foundation of a regular system of taxation to pav the interest ?t the debt, by passing n law taxing all real and

personal property, which had already been taxnd lor local purposes, and a new tax upou many other new objects hitheito exempt from taxation. This was followed up the next year by an act of the 30th of April, 1841, laying a tax upon all trade*, occupations, and professions, and also upon all officers under the State snd institutions incorporated by it. Other enactments provided for a more equal and uniform assessment of property throughout the State prepatorv to taxation. In the following session, by an act of 27th June, 1M2, the assessors were required underoath nm in unm-rvaiuc me oriject* taxnu, hut to give thermal worth, such as they believed they would bring at public ale after due notice, andtheaame act nearly doubled the whole of the existing taxes. These provision* abundantly prove the aincerity of the fltatein her effort* to pay her debt*, nor did ?he omit to give new pledge* for her good faith. In the *ee*ion of ltMtt, a memorial was presented to the Legislature, declaring that they had no power to contract n debt to mnkc internal improvements; and that the laws authorizing it were without constitutional warrant, and therefore null and void. '* On this memorial the committee of the benate made report (Jan. 10, 1S4J) concluding thus:?In the opinion of your committee, every obligation of moral duty, national honorand political integrity, require* that theHtate should sustain her faith, which has been constitutionally and legally pledged by the proper authorities of her government. When the uttermost larthing of the public debt shall have been paid, then, and not till then, may it be said, in deed and in,truth, that Pennsylvania is redeemed. Therefore, Resolued, That the Senate reject the doctrine of repudiating the state debt as unconstitutional, immoral and nbversiveof thefnndamentalprinclplesof our republican government, and that they will maintain the credit of the state unsullied, by making adequate provision to meet all her engagements with promptitude and punctuality. This r. solution, presented by Mr. M'Clanahan, ol Franklin, to whom the honor is fairly due, is the true creed of Pen nay lvani.i. W> may say what we please, make what objections or excuses we please, tinleii every dollar of this debt, principal and interest, be paid?without deduction and without compromise, Pennsylvania is utterly I RK H IRNING, NOVEMBER 24. dishonored. We may prove that other nations have been falae, but that doea not justify our own delinquency. ami not only shall we ourselves be disgraced, but the whole system of free institutions of which we are the representatives, and the great cause ol public liberty of which we are the guardians, bepiostraled with us. Nay, the state is bound by obligations higher even than the mere payment of an ordinary debt . I r by an act paused on the -is)th ol i March, 1-3J, it is declared, ' it any ex. cutor, a lmiuisirator, guardian or trustee shall have in lui hands" any money* to invest, the Orphans' Court may direct ita investment "in the public debt of this Commonwealth, alter which they shall be rxempted lor ull liability for loss on the seme." 80 that the state stands pledged to protect those sacred fundi. How can we, even if we had the meannass to wish it, how can we avoid the payment ofthese debts I We have no reason, no excuse, not even a respectable looking falsehood to allege against them. We asked for the money, pleged our public fusth to ihose who gave it, received full value for it, spent it ourselves, and have increased the value of the property of the State ten-fold by these improvements. All this is admitted?still as we have been disappointed as to the profits of these works, we cannot fail to hear in whispers, expressions of disoonteut rather than opposition. " These improvements, it is said, have cost a great deal too much." But was it the lender's fault that you speut his money loo freely 1 Again?" Those works are badly managed.' Be it so?then manage thein better; and if one set of members are unlit, choose others more competent. Then again " These works ought to be sold and no taxes should bu paid until they are sold." Whether they ought to he sold, is a question of policy or ol power between the parties in the State; but how does that concern the lender! Pay for them lirst, and afterwards quarrel about the management of them. lint do Mot begin by dissensions who shall esercise the political iufiueuco these works may confer, while the poor creditor who made them looks 011 11 paid. And then another voice is heard, saying that many persona have purchased this debt at 40 or AO per cent, and therefore it is hard and unjust to pay them the whole 100. But where is the hardship?where the injustice! The State itso f received far every certificate ot stock of one huudrod dollars, not only $100 but $110,or us much as $116. It has then received $110, and promised to pay only $100, and it has promised to pay this to the original lender or his assigace, that is, to any one who purchased Irom him. And what was the creditor's reason lor selling! Why be wanted the money to employ elsewhere; and the purchaser, who of course gives the market price, does the seller the very service we intended by making the debt transferable, because it he did not get the mouey from that purchaser, he would not have accomplished what he thought was ol advantage to hiai. But perhaps he sold because he had no longer any faith in the State Then the man who bought must have had faith. He risked his n oney because he believed that, though poor and unable to pay, you would pay when you could. Now which of these two is most entitled to favor, and why would you punish a creditor who bucame so merely because he confided in you7 The example of the revolutionary Congress seems decisive on that question. At the close of the war that body addressed a circular to the States, where is the follow passage, which seems made lor the occasion :? "The remaining class of creditors, 3ay they, is com|>osud partly of our lellow citizens as originally lent to the public the use of their funds, or have since manifested most confidence in their country by receiving transfer for the lenders, and partly of those whose property has been either advanced or assumed for the public service. To discriminate the merits of these several descriptions of creditors would be a task equally unnecessary and invidious. If the voice of humanity plead more loudly in favor of some than of others, the voice of policy no less than ol justice pleads in favor of all. A wise nation will never permit those who relieve the wants of their country, or u-Ao rely most on its faith, its firmness, or its resources, whe neither of them is distrusted, to suffer by the event." Another objection is, with the politioians, that the people will not pay the taxes, and that the representatives are not inclined to risk their political fortunes by encountering the odium of passiug tax laws. This is the common error of demagogues, who dare not trust the people whom they delude. They tell the city people that the countrypeople will not nay?they tell the country that the city wilt not pay, wnen neither thecity nor the country have the least idea of not paying?for they thoroughly comprehend the distinction betw een the tea tax which brought on the revolution, and taxes laid by their own representatives to pay monies which they have already employed in improvements of their estates which they are now enjoying. To suppose them incapable of seeing the distinction, and of resisting a contribution to repay what they have actually enjoyed, is to deem them totally unworthy of all political honor. Depend upon it, there will he not the least resistance to any collection ol taxes legally imposed by the legislature ; and if any misguided citizen would be absurd enough to make any difficulty, he will soon bo brought into line with the rest of his fellow citizens. Mark what has hewn the effect in practice thus far of laying new and uncomfortable taxes within two years past. Has any man lost hit seat in the legislature by voting lor taxes? Has any man got any votes or any popularity by opposing 1 Not one. But then it is said these creditors are foreigners. Well what of that ? You sell your Hour and tobacco to foreigners, and are glad to get the money even from a foreigner. We did not hesitate to borrow this money from foreigners, just as the United States have agents in Eurojie, now begging the foreigners to MB I us money. It is only then where we have to pay, that we begin to make these excuses. We ought to be ashamed of this childish notion about foreigners. If half a dozen generations, and upwards of a century and a half ot settlement on the aoil oi Pennsylvania, can qualify a citizen to hate foreigners, I flatter myself I have as good a right as any of you to indulge in that absurdity. Let us at any rate be consistent, and scorn to borrow from them ; but if we will borrow, let us scorn to defraud them. 1 will resume the subject to-morow, and meanwhile remain, Yours,fcc. N. BIDDLK.

Gordon Bennett, Esq.? , Dear Sir? Knowing that any thing in the way of news, j?o- J litics, morals or money will much interest your ' numerous readers, and knowing, too, that any new movement of the political chess players of this ] great State of broken banks, broken credit, and numerous coal mines wil much interest you, I give | you, in haste, a few lines in regard to the Cass ' movement at this place. You will recollect that in ] my first epistle to you, some weeks since, 1 predict ed the commencement of a new political era in | Pennsylvania in a short time. That time hus at t length arrived, and the first movement in favor of j Gen. Lewis Cass for the Presidency was made this \ evening at the court house in this place. The meet- ! ing had been talked of in every hotel, and at the street corners, for the last two weeks, and the whole town was on the <jui rive to sec the proceed- 1 ings. On the ringing of the bell to-night, the old court house was filled to a jam. Hamilton Alricks, Es<|. was called to the chair, assisten by six Vice I'residentsand four Secretaries. Jno. P. Anderson, Esq. from n committee of twenty appointed on the subject, reported an address to the people of the Union, urging the claims of (Jen. Cass to the Presidency. The address was one of the ablest political documents to which it has been my fortune to listen for years. Without disparaging the claims or talentsof either Mr. Van Bnren, Mr. Calhoun, Mr. Buchanan, or Col. Dick, it urged upon the democratic party the necessity of choosing a man who would be emphatically the candidate of the people? belonging to no faction and controlled by no rliqmct?honest, faithful and intelligent. The eminent services of Gen. Case, in the held nnd in the cabinet, at home and abroad, were recounted in language glowing with 8 impassioned eloquence, and elicited long, loud and ' uproarious applause. The whole a (lair passed off excellently. Resolutions embodying the spirit of the ( address were, together with the Pntne, unanimously adopted, and by acclamation. The chairman of the ineetingdelivered an eloquent s|?eech on ojiening the meeting and was followed by Hon. D. Krouse, who electrified the audience with an old fashioned Jackson apeerh. Among the resolutions were two recommending the rc-election of Mr. Buchanan to the Senate, anil approving of the course of Gov. Porter. Altogether it was a larger und more enthu- c siastic meeting than either of those for Buchanan or Johnson, and the friends of both these gentlemen are fast joining the Cass standard. We are now upon the commencement of the third and last act in the Presidential drama of Penn- , sylvania. Mr. Buchanan and Col. Johnson have both been tried, hut neither seemed to suit the mass ( of the people : but now that the curtain Iihs risen upon the third and principal act, the applause of * the. multitude is glorious to listen to. Without any c exaggeration, the present American Minister is the most popular candidate that can he brought forward in Pennsylvania, and it is not at all unlikely that if the primary meetings were regularly and properly held, he would receive the whole Keystone vote on the first ballot. At any rate he is sure of it on the t second or succeeding ballots. 3 I know that it appears to be generally supposed, that Mr. Van Buren will be the nominee of the * democratic party: but there is certainly but little 1 feeling in lavor of him here. Pennsylvania is near- ? ly as powerful as New York, and if she brings with her, in the support o( Gen. Cass, New Hampshire j, and other Eastern states, with Ohio, and others of the South and West, the twice nominated and onre =ncce?sful candidate will be easily pushed from the track. Mr. Van Buren will be, in all probability, a It victim to a popular movement, and in that case Mr. o Cass is certain of the nomination. c Burro. r< ERA] 1842.

It is a list of all the prisoners discharged trom the lirst ol January, 1837,to the 30th June, 184J. It includes the names of all the persons ditckaigcd at the Island, without exception. The book commences in 1838. [Another document was shown und read, containing a list of the names ol criminals, together with the names of the magistrates and olhceis who had grant) d discharges of criminals, committed principally at the Upper Police- The criminals named in it appeared to have heen committed by ouc magistrate, and discharged by some other otlicer.] John M. Braohurst, ex-Alderman.?Was a commissioner of Alms House from Juue 1830 to Sept. 1841. On occasions oi my visits to the Islund, the keepers sometimes made applications to me to discharge certain persons; Alderman Stewart always took lha names dots n; the prison was overdo wing with male prisoners; the dischaige of vagi ants took place constantly while 1 w asacommis loner; I was with Alderman Stew art several limes when spplication was made for the discharges; 1 went w ith Aid. Stewart to the poliae from three to live times, possibly Sen times; sometimes we applied fur the discharge of more, and sometimes ol less. 1 mode personal application once >t the upper police, and once at the lower ;iolice; they were men and not women whom 1 applied for. .Mr. Kkkn, Keeper of the Island.? i'hu names alluded to ire all which 1 could lind; we made very diligent search ill round the office; 1 did not always put down the name of the magistrate who gave tha discharge; I never applied for a discharge but once, and that was to Justice Hopson. Mr. Vauderbilt would sometimes order persons to tie discharged wheu he was going to town, and say that he would bring the discharges when lie came back. Vagrants were sometimes discharged lielore their t me hail expired, and the name of no magistrate entered upon the book ; and I don't know whether any ilischarg.is were brought or not. [Here followed a lengthy examination ot the Island Book, names, times, dischaiges, to] Mr. Vauderbilt CUM JUL May, 1837, and staid till 46th May, 1839. 1 never knew any keeper besides Vunderbilt order the deputy keeper to discharge vagrants, and tnist to the chunce of gutting a discharge. The Mr. llayne spoken of was committed as a vagrant. He became msauelast Thursday or Friday. Here Mr. Uord read trom the book of the Board of Aldermen's proceedings, vol. Id, page 100. Kx-Alderman Wm. Sh?i.kr 1 am a counsellor ut law. I have for tholast live years frequently been at the Police Office. I have known vf the discharge of vagrants at Blackweli's Island ; it was done by the magistrates indiscriminately ; 1 have sometimes myself made application, end hare known others make the appliomion ; in such cases the discharges have been filled up by the justices, or by the clerks, as the case might be. [A discharge ihowii to witness] This is in my own liand-wriUug ; 1 never knew of any discharge taking place where there uioi ant) ini'iietiir if iitn vtta.li> tit (tin imlinn iiHinn Witness hiu w detailed the case of a poor man, whom he thought ought to go to the Alms House. Justice Stevsns went round with me to look at him. lie was in a very uttering state. Justice Stevens returned and made alhJavit himselt. We luaml him at the corner of Little Water and Anthony streets. I never knew the man before, and "hould not know him now. This was 4th of April, 1B4-J. Thu man's name was News. On this 4th ol April, 1 was a candidate forotticeon the democratic ticket. Justice Parker was not a supporter of miae. He lived in the lamu ward. I don't know where thu blanks are kept at the police itlice, although I could probably tind them by searching. I have no such blanks at my oltice. I should think no a|>plication for discharge was ever made without somocou. versation aa to the merits of the case. Ex Alderman Alkx. Btkwaht.?I was formerly a Commissioner of the Alms House. At that tune I was lreluently applied to, to procure the discharge of vagrants. These applications were always made on the Island, which I often visited. On the application of a prisoner for a dischaigu, 1 would go to the keeper and ascertain the man's character. The clerks at the office generally, sometimes he magistrates, filled up the discharges. 1 sometimes took ip these discharges to the Island myself, and sometinios landed them to the kueeper if 1 met him? I think five is the largest number which I ever applied "or at any one time. These discharges often became necessary Irom tbo crowded stute of the prison ; most so in :he winter season. The discharges were made at all seaions of the year, and especially in the spring, when they want to get out to work. When 1 applied for a discharge die magistrate would hand it to me myself ; I remained in as Commissioner until the end of this hold over-time ; the business of the discharges generally was turned over to me, by common consent. During the twenty days imme diatuly preceding last spring election 1 did not apply at all for discharges, and heard it currently reported thut a large number of vagrants were brought from the Island to vote at the election. Wm CasPT?1 am a lawyer, I have often been at the Policeefllce during the last three or four years : J know of the discharging of vagrants ; I never applied for them? a great many of them : I procured most of those I applied for, and those I did not get I got a habeas carpus lor from Judge Lynch. I have known others to apply ilso. They were filled up by various persons?ence by a clerk in my office; I don't remember applying lor any discharges within a month before the last election. Bxancv Osbormk?He was questioned as to the filling int ol sundry discharges, and in whoso hand writing. Mr. Callckdar was questioned on the same points. Mr. Bradt here offered three discharges signed by Qeorge W. Mstsell.l Wm. W. Krf.am, (Constable.)?He was questioned as to :he dates. Sic. of certain discharges. Sic. Justice Stkveiss.?I am a i'olicn Magistrate, and was ippointed 4th Juue, 1840 ; 1 know of no conspiracy, unleratanding, agreement, or arrangement, todischarge vagrants from the 30th March to I till April, to vote at the lection. [He was questioned as to the discharging of several vagrants whoso discharges were shown him.j I know nothing about them. It was in the month ot May lubaequenttc the election, that 1 first heard a repot tot persons being discharged to vote at the election ; this was when the Grand Jury were in session. [Here followed mother examination of sundry discharges, names, dates, persons applying for them, he.] 1 have i-ometimes dis:hargod male vagrants ; I cannot swear that during my whole official term down to the 30th May, 184.1, I ever discharged a dozen persons; 1 may have lone so, however. [Some discharges were here thown him.] It appears by these, that I did ( charge 17 parsons between the 30th of March and thp ldth April. The Island was swarming with vagrants, and the spring opened unusually early. I believe I have an undoubted right by law to grant discharges betore the time expires; I hava granted such diacharges since proceedings have been commenced against me; I believe I have granted one to-day, I have granted discharges of persons committed at the upper police, although I avoid it as much as possible; applications for discharge are sometimes agreed to, but most generally denied. By Judok Isolu I recollect that Alderman Stewart csme to the office and made representation as to the crowdad state of the Penitentiary, and advised that vagrants should be discharged on the recommendation of the keeppers, who were supposed to know atiout the characters of the prisoners.
