Peel then rose and spoke as follows iSir, there are occasionally some questions of sue vast and manifest importance, and that prefer sut a claim, or 1 should rather say such a demand upc the attention of this house, that all rhetorical pr faces, or dilating on the value of them, or enjoi; ing the duty of a patient and attentive consider Hon of them, become superfluous and nee< less. I shall, therefore, oroceed at once i call the attention of this committee to a ma ter which enters into every transaction of whit money forms an ingredient. Tiiete is no contrac public or private?no engagements, national or i dividual; the enterprises of commerce; the profits trade: the arrangements to be made 111 all the dome tic relations of society; the wages of labor; the tra tactions of the highest ainownrx and tho9e of tl lowest; the payment of the national debt ; the pr vision for the national expenditure on the ui hand, and the command which the coin of tl smallest denomination has over the necessaries life?all are affected by 1 lie decision to winch v may come on that great question which I am abo to submit to the consideration of this house. 8i the circumstances under which this duty impost upon me arises, are shortly these >?In the ye 1333 an act of parliament passed wluch continui to the Hank of England certain privileges until tl year 1855; and alter the year 1855, until parhame should determine to give one year's notice to tl Hank of its determination to revise the charte Before, however, the expiration of the full peril of'21 years?before the arrival of thai term of 18 ?there was reserved to parliament the power, aft the lapse of ten years, by notice to be given to tl Bank, of revising the charier and re-considering tl whole subject. That period, sir, will arrive August next. After August next it will be cot petent for this house, by notice given through tl Speaker, to signify to the Bank hat, within s months next following, this house will reconsid the charter of the Bank of England. But tli opporiunity once permitted to go by, the charter the Bank and all the privileges wluch it conft will endure, necessarily endure, until the year 18J (bear, hear.) Sir, in the present state of tl country, in the present state of the currency, afi the inquiries which have been instituted, after t degree to which public attention has been called this subject, her Majesty's government feel it to their duty to avail themselvesof the opportunity th given them by law, and to submit iheir views to p liament upon the subject. They are of opinion tji inqairy has been exhausted; that all the intormati which is essential to the formation ot asatisfacto judgment has been acquired; they believe that th should be abandoning their duty it they had n undertaken maturely to consider this subject, anc they did not now undertake, on their responsibili to submit to the consideration of parliamsnt, once and without protracted inquiry, the measui which in theiropinion it is desirable to adopt (hei hear). Sir, 1 am pertectly, satisfied that the mei hers ot this house, rising superior to all party ct siderations and to all private interests, willconsid it their duty to apply their deliberate and impart consideration to tins great subject. 1 have tf confidence in the House of Cdmmons, from pi experience, of their superiority to mere party vie or to personal interests, when matters ot such grt importance come under consideration, that I ft convinced that that will he the course they w pursue (hear, hear). 1 ask, then, to night for decision; in fact I would deprecate the delivery any positive opinion. 1 ask you to listen to the |>i posal of the government, to hear the evidence a the arguments by which they support it?to re and consider the resolutions which 1 shallmove oi pro forma?and after having deliberated maturt upon them, then to come to the discussion and pi nounce your final judgment (hear, hear). Sir, 1 t not shaken in the confidence I repose in the hoi: by the publications which f have seen inviting t attendance ot members upon this subject. 1 lit in my hand the resolutions adopted at a meeting the general committee of private country banke held on the 17th of April last. 1 find that they solved " that the refusal of government to give formation on the subject of their measure conce ing banks of issue naturally leads to theconclusi that it is their intention to propose some measi affecting country banks generally,and this meeti consider it most probable that it relates to t local circulation of the kingdom." Then tfa resolve " that under these circumstances it most desirable that all banks of issue, whether j vate or joint-stock banks, should unite to oppc any alteration in the local circulation of banki or in the conditions on which it is now allowed law, and that the several joint-stock banks of ist throughout the United Kingdom be invited to i operate with the private bankers in su opposition." The third resolution agreed is, "that all hankers be requested, as as possible, to bring the question fully un< the consideration ot all members of parliami with whom they may be acquainted or connecti and endeavor to induce them to oppose any su alteration in the local circulation of the kingdo 8ir, 1 complain not- of those resolutions ; 1 co plain not, at least, ol the bankers inviting metnb of parliament to attend here and to consider t subject i but I do hope that members ot parliann will resist the subsequent appeal, and that they v not come down here determined to oppose any teration in the circulation (loud cheers) belt they have maturely considered the proposals of I government (continued cheers). 1 ask you, thi to maturely consider the great principles on whi an alteration ot the currency must depend. / you so satisfied with the existing state of thin are you so convinced that it is utterly impossible any particular to suggest any alteration in the exi mg laws, that you will come down here, heft hearing the discussion of this mibject, prepared offer an insuperable obstacle by previous cone and understanding to any alteration in the ex'Hti law) Sir, I know it to be impossible (cheers), hold in my hand the evidence which should ma it impossible that any such previous compact s understanding, if entered into, could be carr into effect. My immeuiate proposition appears relate to banking concerns, and in particular to issue of promissory notes. Considering that 10 jrc have now elapsed since this subject was brought der consideration, I hope 1 shall be excused if I not merely limit myself to a consideration of th' principles which, on a superficial view, appear determine the issue of promissory notes 1 hop shall be allowed to go deeper into the princip which govern this great question (hear, hear), cannot discuss here the principles upon which should establish the engagement to pay a certs definite value, unless we are agreed upon the pr ciplesas to what constitutes the measure of val in this country (hear, hear). That is at the tour ition ot the whole ot this subject. It is imposed ro raise any superstructure merely regarding t circulation of paper credit and paper currency, i less we first consider the principles which det mine the value of tnat of which paper is sierely t representative, and it is impossible that we c come to a common agreement as to the issue paper, unless we are Hgreed hs to certain gr< principles relating to the measure of value and t medium of exchange (hear, hear). Now, sir, very much fear that thete is not that comni agreement as to those other and greater princip to which I allude. 1 am afraid that there is not universal agreement as to what, in this country, the standard, and what really constitutes the no sure ot value. Sir, I invite discussion upon tl first and nreliminurv uuestion?the foundation all the rest. I want to ask what has been the If and practice of thin countrv as to the measure value. What is that which determines all ct tracts ? The denomination of value is a pour What is a pound 1 and what is the engagement pay a pound * (hear, hear). Unlesa you are agre upon that it is in vain to attempt to legislate up (his subject. If a pound is a visionary theory fiction not existing in law or practice?in that cs one class of measures relating to paper curren may be adopted ; but if the word "pound," vq common denomination of value, signifies somethi more than a mere visionary fiction?if a pou me an a quantity of precious metal of certain weij and certain fineness, in that case another class measures relating toapapercurrency will lie req site. Now the whole foundation of my measure re on the assumption that,according to practice,acco ing to law, and according to the ancient monetf policy of this country, the meaning of n pound neither more nor less than a certain definite qui ti.y of gold, with a mark upon it, to distinguish weight and fineness, and that the engagement pay a pound means nothing, and can mean nothi else than the promise to pay to the holder, wh demanded, a definite quantity of precious me (hear, hear.) Now what is the meaning of pound according to the ancient monetary policy tlua country 1 The origin of the term win this, the reign of William ilie Conqueror n pound silver was the pound of account A pound tli represented both ths weight of ths metal and e SW Y NEW YORK, THURSDA yr denomination hi me money. i>y successive u< * basements in the currency a great alteration wi made, not in the name but in the intrinsic value < a pound sterling, and it was not until a late periot in the reign of Elizabeth, that silver, then bein the standard of value, received that determinal weight which it maintained without variation, an with constant refusal* to alter it, until 1710, whe gold was substituted for silver as the exclusiv _ standard of value. Th- standard of silver observe until 1710 was fixed about the year 1507, but in 171 [jj the value of a guinea was determined to be 21s )n and for a certain period both gold and silver const e_ tuted the standard ol value. In the year 177 n" however, it was enacted that no contract shoul a. be discharged in silver tor any sum more than ?21 and, consequently, gold became substantially tl; [(* measure of value in this country, aud it continue , to be the measure ot value legal y and practical) [J until 1797, when that fatal measure, calk 't the Bank Restriction Act (hear, hear,) for ri moving restriction, and permitting parties to issi 0I money at discretion, without being convertible in 8_ coin, received the sanction of the legislature, ar n" disturbed not only the practice but the theori ' and notions of men respecting the standard ot a count. (Hear, hear ) Front 1797 until 1810publ u, attention was not much directed to this importa j subject; but in 1810, men of sagucity observed tli ()t the exchanges hud been for a considerable pern unfavorable to this country; that tliey were moi ut untavorable than could be accounted for by wh r is called the balance of trade in the monetary tran actions ot the country, and invited puotic aueniu B1 to the subject. A committee was, therefore, a pointed, and considered the subject, and opinioi * then novel were stated by thern?namely, that nc pound meant, in fact, nothing else than a defini iiuaniity of the precious metals, and that those wli , in their issues ol paper, promised to pay a poum 1(j ought, in tact, to pay it. (Hear, hear ) Th m theory was much contested at the time. T1 House ot Commons weie not convinced by the a , gumentaused in favor of it. The prevailing opinion ; ihe public?their rainds having been disturbed 1 :Q those novel views which h .d prevailed since 17! ?was, that it was a momentary delusion, a ine I " speculation of political economists, and that som thing else was signified by a pound than a defini weight of precious metal. Those who contest) , the doctrines maintained by Mr. Horner, and llio 0I who agreed with him, were asked to specify wht >ra in their opinions, the true definition of a poui ,5 was; and 1 must say they had the fairness, instic lla und definite sentences, by which, at least, you we rr able to comprehend their meaning, though not tl lie thing signified, to state what, in their opinion, tl l() money of account which was nominally a pout l)(, did represent. It will show how much iner us minds were confused uud perverted iroinattutli i r which the light of demonstration has beep shed 1B, select one or two of their definitions of a poui (jn sterling. Writers who stand high in public opt r ion gave these definitions of a pound; and I mi * say, singular as they are, 1 admire them more thi 0* the writers of the present day, who publish intt I jf minable pamphlets, cuntainiug their doctrines < t the currency, but never allow you a glimpse a, what their definition is. (CoiAiderable lang ,eg ter.) However, the writers I am now spoaki of adopted n more honest course of proceeding : One ot them said?"A pound may he defined in~ be a sense of valne in reference to the current as compared to commodities." (Laughter.) A other, a writer who professed to have exhaust |at his faculties in considering the question, dissatisfi igt with the former definitions, and thinking the pi he had a right to something inure definite and ta , , gible, stated "there is u standard, and u unit mt ' i he found to make it; thut unit is the interest ,ji| ?33 6s. 8d. at three per cent?(Lauglitet)?or o nu pound, and that interest being paid in a bank-noi r is money of account " (Renewed laughter.) f(). will only trouble the House with one more detii nJ lion, which is this?" the standard is neither g< jKl nor silver, but something set up in the unagi ation to lie regulated by public opinion." (Lo .jy laughter.) It was supposed at that time that t r-J. doctrines promulgated by the bullion coinmitt l(|j were the visionary speculations of theorists, u were unknow n in the former monetary systems this country. But this was not the case, as will >.i found on reference to every writer of eminence i 0'j torn 1707. Mr Locke,SirWilliam Petty, ?nd othe r? who had nevrr been tamiliar with an inconvertil re' paper currency, arrived at precisely the same cc ln] elusions. Take the opinion of Mr. Harris, an ol " cer of the mint, and a most eminent writer on tl ()tj subject. Mr. Harris, writing more than a centt )re before the appointment of the bullion corumitti ug says:?" In all countries there is established,u c j* tain Btandurd, both as to weight and fineness of t Ky several species of those coins. In England the i ' ver monies are to contain 111 parts of fine eiiv and 6 parts of alloy?that is, the |>ound troy w )3J us contains 11 oz. 2 pennyweights of fine silv rrs and 18 pennyweights ol alloy ; and of a pou j troy ol this standaid silver our money pound ct (I)J tains 20-62 parts?that is to sa.y, a pound of this t co. ver is coined into 62 shillings. 7 his standard 1 cj, continued invariable ever since the 43d Eiiz. to tke standard of money is always meant the qui far tity of pure, or fine metal, contained in agiven su j In England accounts are kept by the pound st 5nl ling, which is a certain quantity of fine silver, ej pointed by law for a standard He was writi u,|" at a time when silver was the standard in Englai m " All payments abroad are regulated by the cpu ' of exchauge, und (hat is founded upon the intrin ^ value, and not on the mere names of coin Thus, this gentleman, writing 150 years ago, aim rn', pated the discussions now going on, and laid do ^jU the true principles with respect to the measure aj. value. And he went on to say, " We may bre ,re the. public faith here, and curtail the long-gst; ;he lished measure of property, but foreigners v make ample allowance for what we may do ; at lCjJ however, we may roh or cheat one anoth tre will secure themselves, and make an i vantage of otir discredit, by bringing 1 j,| exchange against us beyond the par." Tl lst. this gentleman, writing 150 years ngo, ar )re ciliated the discussions now going on, and It t0 down the true principles respecting the measure ,,rl value. He said nlso, " We may alter it if please in our own dominions, we may break pub ] iaith if we like, but foreigners will make am k, allowance for whatever we may do in that wi |nfj and however we may rob or cheat one unoth ,cd will secure themselves, and make an advantage t0 our dishonesty, by bringing the exchanges agai th,. us." In that simple sentence, written 150 ye ars ' contained, in my opinion, the whole ti un theory ot the measure of value (hear, hear); an ,f0 wish it might now be considered that these t ose mentary truths were fully established. (He to hear.) But it has been my duty, aa far aepossit r j leelingas I do the deep importance of this subje |es to read the different publications which have i j penred on this subject; and 1 am perfectly c< vinced that there is not in the public mi lln (H uu* crummy .1 fcriirrm nnu j'civuuiuk agn m nient as to what constitutes the true menst ?e of Vrilue. 1 may suppose that men (rive 30 Hi proof of their sincerity when they publish < .,1,1 tavo volumes (hear, and laughter.)

' it. The accumulation of electricity in the machine caus- w?' i e ed by turning the cylinder or plate has the same tendency A Hi to pass to an object which has less electricity that air has resl to to rush into a vacuum, or water to seek n level,?electii ,nnl [j city, like air or water, seeking to establish always an 9r>' equilibrium. Besides the mode of producing electricity ~ by Miction, as in the common electrical machine, it is also c'ia produced by the action of an acid upon plute* oi different the in metals properly attached together?a fact discovered by A 'r* the person whose name it perpetuated in the term of Oaton caiiism. The mode in common use oi producing galvanic A hi action i* to immerse fhe plates in a trough with sonarate '''n 1). divisions?at one end oi which tho supply of electric "'s' ng fluid generated tiy the Hrtion ol the arid is in excess. This B" end of the trough or battery Is called the positive, and the * . other end the negative polo of the battery. New, if a wire r'c' attached to one end is brought near to a wire proceeding A "? from the other end, the electricity passes fiom the positive a<l" to the negative pole, and a spark is seen,like that proceed- ' rtl ing from the common electrical machine, which is the J^?l ed electiicity set-king to establish an equilibrium. If the two Kc< lb wires are kept in contact, there is a it ream of electric fluid f ,1). passing from one to the other, which is kept up by the or- I"'1 JSl lion of the acid on tho metallic plates already mentioned l,5 0| The ordinary length of these wires.in a common galvanic ?' battery, Is but a lew feet j but they may boa thousand, or ter an hundred thousand miles in length, mid the eflect of ten le> bringing them in contact with racn other is still the J ,1 same?that is, the How through their entire length of h tit- strcan. of electricity at the rate already mentioned. If, "1 ild therefore, the machine or battery is in Washington, and a m- wire from the positive polo is brought to Baltimore and P'1' Ulj carried back to Washington, the end of it, brought in ' i. contact with the wire at the negative jiole, w hich is hut u <*XI tew leet long, will cause a stream oi electricity to flow ' etj Irom Washington to Baltimore and back ugain along the tlu M wire; and it is this wire, comina here and goiDg back, ol which 1* to lie seen 011 tho posts in Pratt street, the two be wires there visible being in lact hut the opposite sides ol a 'nR ie- loop ot Wire which would be eighty mile* in length ware ul" rs, it extended. Aud thii i? the flrat thing to be understood. ' t\e Now it ia known, that ? piece of soft iron bent into the 1 ,n_ shape of a home ahoe, or the letter U, become* n magnet bit ? " to long aa a stream of electricity jh posting through wire KM ** wrapped around it: and the wire, from the positive pole of "PI 'llt' the battery, after coming to Haltimora is wrapped here ">1 "T round h piece oi iron ot the proper shape.and then goes hack J ee, to Washington. To make thia iron a magnet, therefore, in n,e t?r- Dallimore, it ia only neceaaary to connect the ends of the We lie vlrwla Washington, when, ao long aa they are connect- 4 9l[. ed the stream of electricity which passe* along them pro- mt er 'luces the desired ellect upon the iron. When the conurc- ' r-j* tion is interrupted the iron ceases to bu magnetic, and ia ' like any other piece of soft iron. This magnet, which the , erj Professor has ttuyiower to create aU,pleasure, is his prime nd mover. Jrnmediute.ly over the magnet, say in liultimore, in- is a brass lever, with a piece of iron attached to it, wttich he ml- is brought within a quarter of an inch or less ol the horse | lap -hoe A* soon a* this last is made a mague' by uniting ' r| u., (he eods ol the wire at Washington, it attracts the iron on ' ' (he lever and draws one ond ol the lever down, causing Jj-11 at the same time the opposite end to rise.. At this opposite mJ, ,n- end is the pen or stylus, which is of steel about an in?h T- long, and about the s.ze of a knitting needle. Imtnedi- VP' ap- ately overit is a brass cylinder with a groove around it, 1 lllg into which the stylus strikes when the magnet attracts ''c nd (he other end of the lover. Not far Irom this roller Hre tx rHe two others, levolving in contact, like the rollers used to J 8jf, draw out cotton prior to spinning K in a cotton mill, mo >. tion being given to them by very simple clock work mov- 001 ed by a weight. The office ol these two rollers is to ',0 cl* draw (rem another roller, and under the grooved roller, a wn ?trip of paper which i? wound round it like ribband on *S! lif its centie block. With these explanations the opera- *'0 'nk tion of the machine can be readily and easily under ib. stood. When the Professor in Waahington wishes to ,a fjj| send a messaga to Baltimore he spells it with letters J , composed of dots and liiuia? (or instnnce A may be a dot cl> ' and a line, thus . ; H. two dots mid a lino thua . . ; C. a line and a dot, thus . By connecting the ends of #0- ,>he wires for an instant only, a dot is made by the pressure the of the stylus on the paper which is passing over the ''' lbs grooved cylinder; a line is formed by letting the ends of r0' Iti the wires remain in contact for a longer time, when the . aid stylus is kept pressed on the moving paper The writing ' t)r when completed resembles the raised ciiaracters used ill the instruction of the blind, only instead of the common ' .. alphabet, an alphabet of dots and lines in different combi "J ''jc nations is made use of. I'l** The mode of connecting the wires as required is very _ J tV; -imple One of them is kept always immersed in a cupol er, mercury into which the other is dipped, whenever it is i of desired to send a current of electricity through the entire nH( circuit, the fluid inetal forming a couductoi between the J*" urB ends. The operation of writing consists in pressing abut- "" ion, to which the end of the wires in uie is attached, in m': , the manner in which a single key of a piano is struck, by ' l| 1 the linger, with a succession of rapid or prolonged strokes, as doti or line* are required to be formed. We t0( "r, have spoken of the stylus a* a single piece of iron, but it , lie, is in fact composed ot three, like a three pronged fork, 0< Cl, so that eacb letter is made in triplicate. J Bp.
