Notw 1 hetanding this immense decrease in the opei atinna ot the bark a, prices for tba principal staples of South Carolina buve not experienced a vary great change. The supply of any article ot course regu late* the price,more than banking facilities do, and wese* wb-le the greatest revolutions have been going on in banks and in banking ?>stems, prices for our principal staples have only fluctuated from tinaa to time in accord ance with the supply and demand. The legislature* ol several States, have this fast winter, passed laws incress irg the hanking capital ot the State. The new bank* these bills will bring into existence wi'l exert a very great ii flucuce on business motteis, and serve to de stroy the existing state ot commercial altaii-i, and pro duce an inflated slate of business, endangering the exis tence of commeiclal systems, which have been so successful and which have been tbo principal pio ducers of the prosperity that now rests upon every de partment of trade aDd commerce. The commercial com munities of South Carolina are in a much more prospe rous condition, under the restricted banking system oithe state, than when the hanks were so much inflated and extended in their operation*. They realize prices equal ly as remunerating, and find an abundance oi the citcubiting medium The rate of interest is much lower now than it was then, and there ia a greater and more equal diatributian of property. The citizens of Ohio are destined to again experience mms of the evils of an infla ted hanking system. The new banking law of that State, provi Ins for the enmhli-bmeut of banks having capitals amounting to $6 400.000, under the name of branches of the State Bunk of Ohio, and free hanks with CBpital to an unlimited amount. The present hanking capital of Ohio is sullicieutly largo to conduct the bu?.mess ot the State s ifely tmd profitably, aud any increase will only derange the existing laws of trado and produce au unhealthy, tin natural, illegitimate state ef things. A gradual extension of the movements of the banks now in existence, in ac cordance with the steady increase in business, would be desirable and ni r-rsiary, but a giaat and sudden increase iu the business oi banking in any State, cannot bnt be at tended with very disastrous results. The Franklin Bank of Cincinnati, has declared a divi dend of five p :r cent. New York stockholder* may re ceive the dividend at the Bank of America. 'i he Legislature of Pennsylvania has passed, snd the (iovernor has signed, a bill extending the charter of the i urum- tcial Bank of Philadelphia. The individual liabi lity clause has been inserted in the charter. we annex tables showing the operations of the several mints of the United States in 1844, and the aggregate coinage for 1844, compared with previous years, it will bo reen that the coinage of 1843 was much larger than thci<-?|previou3, and the year following.

The atmosphere, the sunlight, the warm clouds around the nm of the horizon, make the climate as luxuriously en joyable as a mint-julep in harvest time. But, what's the news 1 Take a chair and let us talk over the news of the day?agreed. Well, the cabinet is a sterling cabinet?a busi ness cabinet?a wide-a-wake, enterprising cabinet, and President Polk has, indeed, proved himself a muster cabinet maker. For only examine a mo ment the ootential regulations introduced or about to be estaolished in the distribution of the " two dollars a dav and roast beef" ol the Treasury. 1st. The territorial offices to be filled by men from the Territories in which such offices are or may be ?the importation system from Washington and the Stales to be abolished and overruled where it is in force. 2 All the notoiious, irredeemable, self-complacent, subservient or pliable, obstinate or flexibly servile whtgs, to be turned over to the care ol the great whig party?marked on|tbe|back "this side up with care." 3. Every man who has been in office for a term of eight years,' or longer, to be rotated out without distinction ol party. Upon this last grand repub lican innovation, the Cabinet, it is said, were yes terday in sersion till a late hour of the night, and though at this time we are not informed of the adoption of the eight year limitation, yet we know it would meet the approbation of the whole coun try, if adopted. The general impression inclines to the conclusion that the Cabinet have adopted, or will, undoubtedly adopt, this excellent rotatoi/ regulation. The "Organ." however, was the main question of yesterday's consultations of Polk and his ministers. No definite conclusion report ed, except that Blair will, in no contingency, ! honored with the official function of editor of tl - official paper. He is not the man. His money has made him a little too dictatorial longer to be trusted. A new press will be established, and its influence will be found to be ad wholesome to the old sores, among cliques, factions, and individuals, as healing to the sores, so long kept open by the probing knife of Blair, as Oldridge's Bairn ot Co lumbia, or Pease's Hoarhound and Dogfennel Candy. But, respecting the eight year regulation ofrotatioR. We ineist, if it be apolied, that it shall be inexorable, and that even Peter Hagner, third auditor, and his seventeen relatives in office, shall abide (by therule. And we would suggent another rule, to wit, that no man, not even the heads of the departments, shall be permitted to have simultaneously more lhan seventeen rela tives in office under Executive appointment, and for a restriction of the President himself to fil ty two relatives, allowing two for each State in the Union. We believe Captain Tyler never knew the extent ot bis family connexions till last sum mer, when he discovered that they numbered a force equal to Falstafl's regiment, and would, per haps, have been as unlucky in the end, if not so considerately promoted, elevated, and provided lor as they were by the worthy captain. [Item?The last intelligence from Williamsburg is, that Captain Tyler is seining the James River for his summer supply of fish. It is said that the gambols and high jumps of several sturgeon caught napping by the Captain's fishermen the other oay, caused infinite diversion to Mrs. Tyler, who de clared the scene a most beautiful snort.] JF Col Benton has failed to save 1. L. simith,Reg ister of the Treasury. Coneuquinily, even with Benton's inlluenc?,appears not to availmuch where the party prejudices and opinions of the obnoxious incumbent, cry aloud to spare not. Ransom H. Gillett, (if we mistake not,) of York State, sup plies the place of Smith. The Democratic Associations of Washington, who distributed several millions of documents last summer all over the land, surpassing the industry of Willis Green and his confederates?demand that in the distribution of offices,these same Wash ington locotocos shall not be overlooked. And we now tell Captain Polk, and we are talking to htm as to a friend, and as no sycophant ever talks, that unless these Associations of this District at" at tended to, there will be a furs raited around his ears, which will give him more trouble than a lit tle. They only ask for Sengstack in the p'.sce of Svkes, and Towles in the place ot old Major Dade, of the Penitentiary, and one or two petty Clerk ships, for the thousands of dollars which they Bpent lost summer. We ask no favor with these men; but we protest against ex members ot Congress fit ling all the fat offices in Washington. Yours, truly, Mr. Fot. Philadelphia. [Correspondence o( the Herald.] Philadelphia, March ?29, 1946 Spring Weather?Cat. Webb and Gen Green. The weather is fine?the streets are fall of the most lovely and glorious ladies in Christendom. It imparts fresh vigor to the most emaciated, to take a stroll down Chrsnnt street. How does it happen that for the last two months, Col' Webb ot the regular army, is so often in this eity i Not a week elapses, without seeing that distingushed hero o' "mahogany stock''renown, landing down at Head's Man sion House. It is rumored that he comes on here, to attend a snit for libel brought against him by Colonel I'owell. General Doff Gieen is soon to be hero. Philadelphia, March 31, ISAi. The weather for the last three days has been mild an* pleasant. the power of the sun seems to have been increased, and but for the masses of clouds which float across the sky, the heat would be as uucomfortable as midsummer. We have had through the course of the day the slightest and briefest imaginable sprinkling of rain not enough to begin to lay the dust which is csrried by the southeast wind in clouds through the air, filling every chink and cranney of our houses, and the eyes and nos trils of pedestrians. The draught has accumulated great quantities ef dust, and I fear is doing serious damage to vegetation. The most interesting portion of news is that connected with our Courts. The Supreme Bench is divided on the question ot a nesting the judgment of the Quarter Ser sions in the cr?e of Samuel Zephon.and have ordered a r< argument. I have already laid this case before the readers of the Herald, and l deem it only necessary now to say that Zvphon was convicted of murder, and is under sentence of death. A Writ of Error haa in the meantime been taken to the Supreme Court, on grounds stated in a former letter, and the execution must again, as it has twice before, be respited till the same be determined. It is said thut t .vo out of the five judges are for reversing the judgment, two are a 'ittle in doubt and incline for a reversal, while the other was sitting at niti print during the first argument, and of course did not hear tne case ? The latter therefore is to be called in, and a new argt ment heard before a full bench. Judges Pet tit and Jones have been re-appointed t bench of the District Conrt, which has just been rcn~w ed by the Legislature; but Judge Stroud has been ss u. ? ceremoniously as it was unexpectedly, thrown overboard, to make room for Mr. Findlay, of Lancaster county, and a brother-in-law of Governor Sbunk. Thia has excited a great deal of dissatisfaction among the bar. They re gard it as another importation from the oonntry, and they are Justly incensed at being so repeatedly overlooked, and at strangers being promoted over their heads. They believe there is legal talent sufficient among them to fill the highest judicial stations, and begin to believe that to tie a member of the Philadelphia bar, is a complete bar to all legal promotion. It is rumored to-day that Judgea Pettit and Jonea will not accept the re-appointment, bath on account of the cavalier treatment received by tbeir late energetic asiociate, and because ot the inadequacy ol the salary attached to the office. Mr. Findlay, who is nominated in place of Judge Stroud, la a son of the late Governor Findlay. r-There >a qui'e a revival among theatricals, and the ma iiagers of the different establishments have commenced the campaisn in earueat. Booth appears at the Walnut tc-uight; Welau briaga out Mazoppa at the same time at the Olvmpic or National Circus ; Burton at the Arch Street, produces Martin Chuzzlewit and conclude* with the Ethiopian traveratie of " Otello," thus rivaling the Ethiopian Opera at the Cheanut Street. Thia latter company supply the frequenters of their esta blishment with considerable smueemeut. The mere anncuncement ol the performances, however, show that Burten and Welch are the most jndirious of all our managers, for their entertainments are ot a mingled character, lumish more variety, and consequently they must hereafter, as they do now, transact tho greatest amount of thoatrical business. It does one's heatt good to see ths improvement mani. nifeated among our stock companies. The wretched, brutal traah, (1 speak of the quality of theaators.) which occtmnd the boards a short timo since, seem to have been expelled or driven into their appropriate spheres, the "supegangi."and their plac-s supplied by gentlemen of sotoe education, who have made the drama their profes sion and their study. It is cheering to fee such persons as Mr. anl Mrs. Thayer once more upon the stsge, and it gives hopes of a revival of the character of the histrionic profei-tion. 1 believe that the most fruitful cause ol the drams being descried by the people, haa been that It was first deserted hv those who alone were fit to bo its repre tentative*. The mass I of playgoers possess fsste and judgment, and are net willing to have their feelings hurt and their dignity intuited by the strutting, bellowing, vulgar cariacaturea upon acting with which the stage has been disgraced for the last ten years. Rumors about our appointments are again floating ? Madame rumor appears to havo an unlimited power of appointment and removal To-day Henry Horn Is the Collector of the Port, and Andrew Miller is the Post Ma? ter. These rumors make quite a sensation among ifte political circle* 1 hesr no rumor* about the Mar*b?*hip of thia District?a pretty conclusive evidence the* tke pre
