NEW YORK HERALD. lew lurk, Tuesday, February 49, IMS, Parlies In Ibe City?Spasms of the " !Va tlves." The din and tumult of preparation for the Spring election are beginning to be heard on all hands in this city. We have, indeed, every reason to anti cipate one of the hottest and most amusing con tests for the city government that we have seen for some years past. The wings arc reniatkubly ac tive. They have made a very capital nomination lor the Mayoralty, and they are preparing to present their very best men in the various wards lor the of fices of Alderman and Assistant. Their determi nation, zeal, harmony and energy are unbounded. Very sagaciously mingling with their old rallying cries, these of "city reform"?"reduction ot tax es "?and "an improvement of the naturalization laws," they have really excellent prospectB of making a successful fight. The democrats have also commenced the work of preparation. They have not yet began to organize their nominating convention, but in a short time we may expect to see them come out with their candidates. The most prominent locofoco candidate for the Mayor alty is Mr. Havemeyer, one ot the Presidential electors. However, we shall have this party with its men fairly in the field in a lew days. As for the Natives,they have commenced the work of an organized system ot attack on the Pope of Rome, in the form of a series of lectures under the j auspices of the " Shiffler club," and this evening I their Mayorality Convention mfeets at Military j Hall, for the purpose of nominating Mr. Harper for I re-election. The election of Mr. Davis in Boston ! has thrown them into quite a paroxysm of extacy, j that event being regarded by them as a most over- | whelming proof of the predominence of "Native- ! tsm." The transports of the poor " Natives," on account of the result of the Boston election, are amusing enough, when we look at the facts in the case In Boston, the naturalized vote is small. " Nativeism," indeed, as it is understood here, can hardly be said to have entered at all into ' the recent contest in that city. The struggle in ; Boston, which was so protracted, and finally de- ! cided by such a slim majority, was purely one be- j tween two religious cliquti of the Whigs?the old, orthodox puritanical Presbyterians, and the | modern, liberal and " newlight" Unitarians Popery, corderoy breeches, and " the Dutch"? the potent elements which created the " Native" , party in New York, had nothing to do with the eight , ornine drawn battles in Boston. Sectar ian difleren- , ces, the growth of the same intolerance, asperity, , and religio-political feelings which, two hundred years ago, drove Edwards and the Quakers into Rhode Island, were the influences which entered j into and produced the contest for the municipal go vernment of Boston. Our"natives" may, therefore, fire their "thousand guns" for Mr. Davis' triumph, but, after all, it is clear that the Pope and the Irish have not been very much affected .by that event. But whilst the "natives' are thus rejoicing, let us briefly review their conduct during the past year, and thus discover the extent of their claims to continuance in power. There never was a par- j ty which assumed the municipal goverument of thiacity with fairer prospects of a long and suc cessful reign than that party now in power. Their professed principles were excellent. They pro mised us city reform. They promised us reduc tion ot taxes. They promised us a good police. They promised us clean streets. They promised us an economical expenditure of the public money. They promised us complete eradication of the cor ruption of the old parties. Every honest and in telligent man in the city hailed the advent of such a party. The ridiculous and childish rigmarole about the Pope and the Irish, with which the "na tives" started,was partially cast aside, and charita bly overlooked. Honeat whiga voted for the "na tives." Honest locofocoB voted for the "natives." Honest Irishmen voted lor the "natives." Honest Dutchmen voted for the "natives." It is a fact that great numbers of adopted citizens voted for this party, because they believed that the pledges which this pqgty gave would be adhered to, and that the city would be blessed with a just, righteous, honest, economical and efficient municipal government. The consequence was, that the " native" party obtained a victory at the polls last spring which was unprecedented. They elected their Mayor by an overwhelming majority, and swept both boards of the Common Council Thus was the new party borne with triumph into power, and assumed the reins of government, with the best wishes ot the best men of all parties. A few weeks passed away, and the community awoke to the melancholy conviction that they had been most grossly duped. Not one movement was made towards any of the reforms which had been so solemnly promised. Scenes of scrambling for office, more disgracefal than any which had ever been witnessed, took place?the gates of the City Hall, and the residences of the Aldermen, were literally besieged by applicants for office, and for the first few months the government of the city was entirely neglected. Aroused at length by the com plaints of the public, the Corporation, by way of redeeming their pledges of reform, drove the ap ple-women from the Park?the booths on the Fourth of July were abolished?and, in a fit of des perate and unexampled zeal for reformation, the Mayor actually procured a dozen or two of tin-pans, tied them to sticks aronnd the Park Fountain, and invited the citizens to quaff ad libitum, from thst magnificent puddle, draughts as weak and mud dy as the administration which devised this unparalleled demonstration of civic munifi cence. Then came the memorable three nights' war of the watchmen on the unfor tunate women in the streets Next in the order of city reforms was the attempt to prosecute the re spectable hotels in Broadway for selling liquor on Sunday. Then, byway ot tealizing the hopes of economy and retrenchment, the taxes were in creased to the amount of two hundred and fifty thoutand dollars, and, to complete the work, a re velation was made of conttacts in "oil"?of con tracts in beef?of contracts in shoes?of contracts in sugar?ol contracts in pototoes?of contracts in Bnufl?of contracts in lard?ot contracts in pork? of contracts in Hour?of contracts in Cavendish to bacco?of contracts in every thing, such as abso lutely astonished the most successful jobbers and pilferers that had ever fattened on the corruption of any of the old parties. Such was the manoer in which the pledges of the natives were fulfilled? such has been the realization of the innocent dreams of the honest masses which elected the present reforming, purifying, economizing party in power! This, then, is a brief but truthful statement of the claims of the " native" party to the suff rages of the people of this city. With streets in a state of filth never known, till now, in a Christian city ?with taxes enormously increased -with contracts in " oil" unparalleled in the annals of corruption? with a most miserable and bungling attempt at po lice organisation ? with every pledge violated, every promise broken, e very just principle trod den tinder toot, these reformers again come forward and ask this community to re elect them. But let us be just. The " na tives" do still assure us that they will save us from the l'opc?they do still most solemnly assure us that they will secure to us the privilege of eating fresh meat in L?nt, now so seriously endangered? they do still guarantee to us the right to read the Bible, without note or comment?they do mill-pro mts ? to save the republic from the Irish and the Dutch. They do not assure us, however?but the "signs of the times" do?that th?y will be swept out of existence in the nex* spring election, by their ancient friends and allies, the wings. Mayor of Brooklyn ?The Native party ol trooklyn, last evening, nominated William Hook ?', ||. fjsg , for Mayor Beach's Financiering ? We'give ia to-day's pa per letters from Allentown, in Pennsylvania, con taining a portion at the evidence taken by the Commissioners, by direction of the Committee on Banks of the Legislature of that State, relative to certain passages in the history of the Lehigh Coun ty Bank. This is a most interesting and graphic disclosure of the system by which many country banks are s.arted into existence, and of the pur poses tor which many banks possessing a good uaine are used. It seems that in endeavoring to start the Lehigh County Bank, Beach used the cir culation and credit ol two other banks which have been supposed to be, to a certain extent, under his control. We allude to the Plainfield Bank ot New Jersey and the Farmers' Bank ot Malone in New York. One ot the most atartling facts in this develop ment is the statement that over #80,000 in Plain field notes were offered in payment of the stock of the Lehigh County Bank, besides a check repre senting depositee in the Plainfield Bank of #36,000. Now, on turning to the statement published by the Plainfield Bank, and presented to the Legislature about the same time, we find that the whole circu lation of the Plainfield Bank, at that time, was only #81,000, and the deposits about #19,000 It is evident, therefore, from this discrepancy, either that the statement put forth by the Plaiufield Bank was erroneous and untrue, or that the bank notes and checks on that concern, presented by Beach in Allentown, were not included in the statement ol the Plainfield Bank to the Legislature, and were so much waste paper. This extraordinary tact and discrepancy ought at once to cause the New Jersey Legislature to investigate the affairs of the Plainfield Bank, and to ascertain whether any of the directors of that institution were aware of the extraordinary amount of their notes in circulation, and of checks on their deposits, which were thus used by Beach in endeavoring to start the Lehigh County Bank. There is some de ception somewhere in these matters, as is apparent from these discrepancies. So also we may state in relation to the Farmers' Bank of Malone. Here is a check ot $20,000 on that bank, when wc will ventuie to Bay that they have not $1,000 in de posit trom any quarter, for its whole existence is only in name, and not in reality. It will be perceived from these extraordinary disclosures, that every thing which we have here tofore asserted in relation to the critical position of the Plainfield Bank, and of all the banks with which Beach has any connection, has not been in the slightest degree exaggerated. The manage ment of all these institutions displays qualifications not calculated to cteate confidence in the public in receiving these notes, and although many of the directors of the Plainfield Bank may believe and mean right, it is very evident that some of these transactions must have taken place without their knowledge, and contrary to the interests of that institution. But these extraordinary facts are quite in keep ing with the character which Moses Y. Beach has always maintained in his banking experiments du ring the last four years. Who has forgotten the experiment he made in ttie case of the Jackson ville Bank J That was a country institution, bro ken to pieces, but bought, like cracked crockery, and attempted to be revived in this vicinity. The ? attempt was made for a few months, when the confederates quarrelled?the Bank broke a second time?Beach repudiated the notes he had issued? and the public lost a great deal of money. The operations now disclosed in connection with the Malone Bank, the Plainfield Bank, and the at tempt to put the Lehigh Co. Bank in action, con trary to the provisions of its charter, must, we think, quite convince the public of the financial capabilities and financial morals of Bsach. We presume, therefore, that the Pennsylvania Legisla ture will repeal the charter of the Lehigh Co. Bank?that the New York Legislature will make an investigation into the uses to which the Malone Bank has been applied?and that the New Jersey Legislature will not forget to search into the cha racter and management of the Plainfield Bank. Something is wrong?all wrong?and, so far as the public is concerned, we advise all to be careful not to touch any paper connected with any of these banks, or any bank with which Moses Y. Beach has any connexion. Post Office?A Bright Thought.?Our worthy Postmaster, at length awakened by the repeated complaints in regard to his administration of the concerns of the post office in this city, has resolved to make a move in the matter. It is said that the ?umber of clerks employed are insufficient to per form their duties, therefore the Postmaster has re solved to make them wear a sort of livery, by way, it is supposed, of increasing their efficiency. Now, whatever may be the Postmaster's views about a uniform dress promoting uniformity in actions, it would be far better for him to clarify his own skull than decorate those of the clerks in his department with blue caps, even with brass eagles on them There is brass enough used by him already, in the gross neglect of public convenience witnessed in the irregularities of his office ; and instead oi get ting new saps for his clerks, he had better put a feather in his own, by making such regulations as will ensure the sale and speedy transmission of the mails from one place to another, and their quick and punctual delivery on arriving at their destina tion. Very little faith in the utility of liveries, or uni form dress?or blue caps more than other caps? in brass eagles over pewter, or other eagles?is in existence in these enlightened times, and particu larly in this country ; and any eflert to increase it comes most unseasonably from the Postmaster be fore he acts in good faith to the public, and does his duty well. Faith, without works, is dead, Mr. Postmaster, and we have neither faith in, nor hope for, real reform, whilst such puerile and con temptible changes occupy the attention of public servants. Mayor Harper and His Organs.?It seems that His Honor the Mayor was not cracking his old jokes at Baltimore alter all, at least so his organs ! say. If he be really at home, we think he should curb the insolence and indecency of these organs. ; It is really very inconsistent in the head of a party that claims parexccllente, to be the " Bible party"? to bethequintescence of all that is pure and lovely, ' and of good report?and who himselt bears a repu ' table private character for morality and decency, i to psrrnit his organs to pour lorth daily long tirades ! of filthy and scurrilous abuse. His Honor the 1 Mayor must look to this. He cannot endow hit organs with brains or common sense any more than he can make a black nan white,but he raiglu at least try to make them decent and fit to be read j out of the limits of the " Five Points." Do try, Mr. Mayor, it is surely not necessary that your | organs should be as filthy as the sheets. Tiib Tftas Exoitrmlnt Increasing.?Another ' great Texas meeting is to be held in Tammany Hall this evening. In several of the wards, meetings ol the same character are called, and we perceive that in Jersey City a similar demonstration is to be made this evening. Nothing more clearly betokens the strength of this question and its ultimate triumph, than the avidity with which |the various cliqitet of of office-beggars and office-holders are seizing on the popular movements in its favor. The Miming Nnn we see, endeavors to depreciate the numbert andeffect of ihe Park Meeting, on Saturday after noon. Still kicking Hgninst the goads. A BiSHor, or not a Bishop T?The controver sy about the position of poor Bishop Onderdonk has assumed a verv interesting form, as on its de cision rests the payment of the salary. This, after all, is the greet point. One of the members of the Standing committer protests, it is said, against the payment of the salary,on the old principle,"nosong no supper " It is probable that the matter may yet come before the civil tribunals, lor it appears thus far, that the Church is unable to deride whether ths Bishop is uufrocked or not Meeting of the Schelffler Club. A meeting of the Scheiffltr Club was held last night in their room, corner of Hudson and Canal streets. The gathering was composed of about fifteen hard featured and tarish looking old matrons, halt a dozen of soft and Billy looking girls, and a sprinkling of the other sex to match?more nume rous, but apparently as much out of their element. Prom half-past 7, the hour named for commencing, until eight, half a dozen of mischievous boys kept up a performance of juvenile pranks, inuch to the edification of the ladies; and, although there was far more noise than method in their procedure, for want of something else.it helped to relieve the ?cene of a vacancy and tedium which would other, wise huve been intolerable. At last, as the little room was occupied gradually by a stray bird now and then dropping in, having become passably garnished, according to the old proverb?" little ina little makes a mickle." Among the rest, the Chairman dropped in, too, and the Secretary also. The iormer called the meeting to order, and the iatter read the call of the meeting, which apprized ill the inhabitants of this terrestial globe who heard it, that a grand oration would then and there be delivered to the audience on " The love of country?its nature, origin, &c." prudently adding in anticipation of the tumult ot applause which would ensue, that it would be prudent to do the rough part ot the plaudits with their hands instead of teet, as the latter would inevitably overpower the gravitation of cohesion, aad tear down the ceiling in flakes whose length and breadth would make fears for the safety of the tenants of the tower floor. The Chabman then introduced to the meeting, a gentle man whom he styled the Hon. Mr. Woodsufv, who com. nenced "light off," by saying he would be perfectly con teni with a patient hearing, and wait tor their applause, if 'hey chose to give him aoy, when he waa done speaking After some preliminary flourishes, the speaker said that '.he phrase ''Leve ot Country" was replete with meaning; tad a powerful influence on the masses, on mechanism, ind the arts, and was very glorious indeed and made a terson wish (hat he had lived in those days that tried nun's souls, just to have the pleasure of showing it. It was consoling te knew that the people of this country wore so free trom despotism, t* at it was inhabited by a acr so fond of truth, that nothing more than an illusion was necessary to arouse them to noble actions. In illus nation of tbe love ot country, he said it might be compar ed to love of any object surrounding us; like that of a fa ker, mother, suter or brother; that it r?quired peril and laager to developed in all its strength, as would be seen if this country was assailed by hostile fleets, and fierce warriors armed with swords and bayonets to transfix jidJ age? when the angel ot hope was retreating, and he horizon lured with the glare ot blazing cities; nay, even the attempts of pliant tools in obedience to <.he designing schemes of bad leaders to make Ameri can serts and slaves through the ballot-box, would irouse them. The next thing dwelt upon was in answer ing the question, ?' What is a country 7" Upon this he was of opinion that it meant something more than land ind water; for if it did not,then the Turks, Mandarins, ind heathen in general, had as much as them?seeing that it is generally admitted that there is both land and water in all those countries inhabited by them. Hannibal and .he Carthagenians wire noticed; and Cesar was spoken if as he who "made all Italy depnndencies of Rime." In connexion with his subject, the speaker proceeded to give i curious and long disquisition on the several kinds of Uw, the constitution oi the United States, the power ot the Supreme Couit, which doubtless he thought were ail legitimate topics; although he was any thing but success. :'ul in making this apparent, to at least,one of his hearers. .At one time he spoke of the people of this country as ho megeneous?at another, as heterogeneous. Several origi nal observations might be given, a* used by the speaker, particularly upon law, if it were worth the trouble How ever, feeling that at least the speaker is interested, we ?aroestly recommend him to study tho pronunciation of Kuglish before he next makes an oration, ami ing him that neither nuclut, nor nunipithal, nor adaption are found in his mother tongue. Alter a few songs, the meet ing adjourned. Fanaticism and Madness.?The annual report of the State Lunatic Asylum has just been publish ed. It exhibits the most satisfactory proof of the necessity and propriety of establishing this munifi cent charity, and its eminently intelligent and suc cessful management. Since the opening of the Asylum,five hundred and filtyone patients have been admitted, of whom two hundred and ninety-one have been discharged. Of those discharged, one hundred and eighty-five were recovered; sixty-one improved ; twenty-two unimproved ; and twenty three have died?leaving two hundred and sixty in the institute at the date of the report. A great number of the patients are represented as having become insane from fanatical excitement. The victims ol " religious anxiety" number seven ty seven?of " Millerism," thirteen; of " Fourier ism," (which is Tegularly set down as one of the causes of insanity,) one. These are the sad records to which we are to look for the effects ot the labors of the fools, madmen, and designing knaves, who pervert and prostitute religion and devotion. Supposid Suicide at Hoboken, Yesterday.? Between twelve and one o'clock yesterday, there was discovered in the water about 100 yards from the Sybil's Cave, the body of a female, which was immediately taken up and conveyed' to an empty building almost opposite to the "Otto Cottage." About three o'clock, the Coroner, C. T. Perry, Esq , summoned a jury to inquire into the cause of the death of the deceased. The first witness called was Wm. Lattebet, who deposed that he was in his host near the spot mentioned above, when be observed some thing like a portion of a female's dress floating on the wa ter, and upon approaching it found it to be the end of a shawl ana the skirts of a dress. He immediately oaught hold of it, and dragged it towards his boat, upon which the body arose to the surface of the water. He took the body into his boat, and conveyed it to where it then lay. The body was about twelve yards from the shore in about four leet oi water; it was just ebb tide when he discov ered it. Dr. R. F. Cooke said he had examined the body, and had not found any marks whatever of external violence ; it could not have been in the water mote than three or four hours, as all the jaints and fingers were quite flexi ble The deceased was evidently a mother nursing en infant of some Ave or six months old. A boy of the name of Edwasd Wileinsoiv, aged 14 years, was then called, and was about to be sworn, but in answer to the Coroner and jury, said that he did not understand the nature of an oath ; knew nothing of the consequences of telling a lie: never said his prayers, or went to church. He then voluntarily stated that he saw the deceased about ten o'clock going towards the cave Another youth named Wright gave similar testimony. Several other persons came forward to see if they were able to identify the body, but were not able to do so satis factorily. All the spectators then withdrew and the jury consider ed on the verdict, and in a short time returned with a ver dict of ''found drowned." The Coroner then stated, that the body should remain in its present state until two o'clock this day, for identifi cation, and if not claimed in the meanwhile it would be then interred. We had written a full description of the person and dress of the deceased, with the hope of leading to identi fication, but at a late hour last evening, it was found that this was unnecessary, as the body having been discover ed to be that of Mrs. Auld, wife of Mr. Auld, machinist, Broome street, who left her home about nine o'clock ia the morning, in a state of mental excitement, and crossed to Hoboken by the Canal street terry. The deceased has left two young children to deplore her loss. Steamboat Launch.?The steamer Niagara will be launched from the yard of Wm. Jc Thos. Col yer, foot of Twelfth street.

It mil nave been a dreadful night on the coast, and some lo mutt have been sustained The trains (rem Provideni and New Bedford came through this morning with te dem engines about an hour behind time.

Bur on Tr ante rift, Fth. '43 Nauvoo.? A gentleman from Nauvoo, informs us, says the Warsaw Signal, that the great mass of the population of the city is in a itate bordering on star vation. There is no business going on, and no means ol obtaining subsistence but by charitable donations from richer classes.

The American frigate Brandy wine was to leave for home on the 20th of D?c. via the Pacific Islands and Valparaiso. The sloop of war St. LouiB sailed on the 7th Nov. also for home. The ship Paragon, Capt. Curtis, of New York, from Manilla for Canton, with rice, was lost be tween the former place and Amoy. Capt C , wife, and crew, took to their boats, and were picked up in three days after by a Chinese fishing boat. They were compelled to pay $600 before the rascals would relieve them. When on board the fishing bout, they had to protect what little property they had saved with drawn knives. They suffered much by the shipwreck, but sufiered still more while in the hands of those who rescued them. We regret to learn that Captain Eagle of the Val paraiso, died soon after his arrival at Macoa. The V. is in charge of the mate. Tne ship Howqua, Captain Palmer, of this port, was attacked by pirates in the Chinese sea- They were driven off by a few shot. Pirates seem to abound in that part of the world.

In a former number it waa sta ted that a clan, thinking themaelvea unjustly treated by the district magistrate, and appealing in vain for redrew, slew him and hia people. The Provincial Judge, who want down armed with powers over life and death, order ed twenty of the ringleaders to be executed.

The magistratei of the upper office have been endeavoring lor years to in duce the Common Council to attend to it, but they have not thought proper to take any measures to remedy the l evil. On Sunday night, Michael Mulligan,who waa con fined there on a charge of burglary, succeeded in making nis escape, by forcing the lock of his cell door, and then unscrewing the bars of a window in tl.e hall, and wrench ing them away, so that he could escape. On Saturday afternoon, Mulligan asked leave of deputy keeper Law rence Van Busktrk to walk in the corridor, and permis sion was granted him. Instead of returning to his own cell, he took his clothes and blankets into the next coll saying that the bunk waa wider in that cell than in bis. and he waa permitted to remain there by Van Buskirk Justice Taylor investigated the matter yesterday, and found that Mulligan effected his exit with a broken case knife, and that he must have been entirely unassisted. There is no keeper on duty at night, and of course no ont 'o prevent any escape, attend to the wants of prisoners, in case of sickness, or render assistance in case of fire The following persons have escaped since October last? lohn Williams, charged with burglary ; J. D Shay, same offence ; Nicholas Pertain, for bigamy ; and Mike Mulli gen, for burglary Now the mischief has been committed the sapient Committee on Police, Wetch and Prisons, are going to close the stable door, and intend making an al teration, by removing the watch house stairs, busing se veral cheap locks, straightening the bent bars, and screw ing them down again.

This class of individuals is vetv nu merous. They are those who work in an unhealthy atmosphere. Printers, workmen in feather stores, 'stone cutters, bakers, white lead manufactures, are all more or less subject to disease according to their strength of constitution. The only method to prevent disease is the occasional use of a medicine which abstracts from the circulation all deleterious humors, and ex |iel them by th* bowels.

The depreMion in the stock market has in a great met gore, been prednced by the rumor* current in relation to JSo annexation of Texas and the movement, of Great Britain in relation to Mexico and Califoraia.

Any little excitement, any turn in political affairs m?y make, is seized hold of by the bears who magnify and increase it in every way, and use it for the purpose of hammering down quotations lor stacks. In this they very often.succeed. , . . . The course the banks are pursuing cannot but have a very favorable effect upon atocka, and the facilities they afford slock operators, are sufficient to offset almost any influence the complexion of political question* may have. Vhe banks have, within the past three wetki, confined ?.heir operations almost exclusively to the brokers Stock loans are preiered to any other, as they are sup nosed to be safer and under better control. There exists in this city men of large capitals, whose bnainMS it iia to loan and invest their money. These private banker dis. count large amounts of business paper and must in a short time control this branch oi business leaving the banks to All up their lines ol discount, by loanston stock securities. The mercantile classes would much rather offer their bills receivable to a private banker for dis count, than to a board oi directors in any one of our banks, where prejudice, private spleen, or rivalry in tbi same line of business may create a disposition to embar rass, are brought to act against the passage of any indivi dual's note or notes, teethe discount drawer A private broker decides at once upon any note presented to him tor discount. The applicant is not held in suspense until ten or twelve can make up their minds upon tlie subject, and when the holder confidently expects re lief, to And his notes returned with a corner turn ed down and no farther satisfaction given. Any business operation between man and man ia settled at once and the thing i* understood, but not se between an individual and any corporation. One ha* ? soul and the other has not. The banks of this city, ai now conducted, are of no use to the commercial classca, but on the contrary are an injury. The merchants have, heretofore, depended upon the banks for discounts, when money was plenty, but in times of scarcity, the banks have found other use* for their money; but discounting business paper. Now the merchants cannot obtain discounts Irom the banks, although money if only worth from four to six per cent per annum. It is to be hoped that the commercial classes will cut themselves clear ot the corporated banks and confine their business to the private banking establishments. By so doing they will increase the capital ofthe private bank* now in operation and induce others to come into the street, to carry on tne same business It will furthermore weaken the banks, and eventually compel them to reduce their capitals, con tract their operations, and drive some of them into liqui dation. These institutions were chartered expressly tor the benefit of the mercantile classes; they were ir.corpu, rated solely to aid and extend the movements ef trade ami commerce, upon correct and legitimate principles, ifor tn concentration oi the capital lor the put pose of establish ing a system of credits, and for the advancement of every branch'of business, upon a solid basis. Instead of carry ing out the ends for which they were chartered, we And tbern devoting neatly the whole of their resources to en courage stock speculations, leaving these engaged in other pursuits to get along a* they best can. F?rt > the commercial Classes require very litt le aidI from these in'titutior.f, and we ore not ?ure but that the refaMl of tb b inks to discount business psp ir as freely as they former ly .lid, will prove ultimately more beneaciai to the com munitv than if they pursued an opposite course.
