Now tbat tbe independent treasury bae become an e.-tabliihment of issue, and lor loan* and discounts, it U as much a bank as any institution in Wall street. It manufactures and issues money, in the shape of treasury notes, and finally loans tbe gold and sliver it has obtained by tbe isnue of those notes and other ways, upon tbe security of its own promises to pay This is the actual operation of the independent treasury act under the present dynasty; and. in separating the government from the State banks, there has been created a financial power greater than that destroyed.? In the destruction of the United States Bank and the distribution of the government deposits among the State banks, M was from out of the frylng pan into the lire; it was no more nor less than taking away the life of one great monster and giving life to a hundred little ones; so in the case of the independent treasury and the sfato banks. It changes the matter back to where it originated, with the additional evil, that now the government has the handling and use of the public funds. It before wan merely an accesstry to the act, now it has become a manufacturer and lender of money, and the Secretary of the Treasury is president, cashier, directors, and all hands. His decision is absolute, in the face of all laws; and any clique of speculators can. without much doubt, obtain facilities from him to inflate prices of stooks or to shave notes in Wall street.

The average dividend for the six months end. ing October 1848. is three and seven-eights per cent, showing a very handsome increase on that for the corresponding period in 1847, and being equal to seven and three-quarters per cent, for the year ending April 1849.

The increase of banking capital since 1843, has been but $1 670,000. A new institution, called the Groeers> Bank, has just commenced operations in Boston, and there is every prospect of its doing a prosperous business. Since 1846, the dividends of the banks of that city have been so small, compared with those of railroads and other corporate companies of that vicinity, that very few new institutions have been formed, and a very moderate increase in the capitals of those in opera tlon ha^ been made; but. in consequence of the rapid in* crease in the growth of Boston, the augmentation of its business, through the influence of its immense railroad system, there has been a demand for more banking capital, and that already in existence has been more profitably employed. Railroad? in that seetion of the country have doubtless reached their maximum in profit*. Their earnings may increase from year to year to a moderate extent; but their expenditures ^ will increase more ropidly. so that their net profits will show very little improvement. Within the past few years, an immense amount of capital has been iitomted ia these-works*of Internal improvement in Massachusetts and other Kastern States : and such has been the mania among the people of that section, that expenditures have been made faster than the capital has been paid in. and the result has been that many of these companies have been in the market for loans at enormous rates of interest, and great sacrifices have been made to sustain these works. The cost has_ therefore, by this been increased, which, in connection with enormous expenditures for magnifioent depotshave swollen the capitals upon which dividends must be made, in many instances, n large per cent on the original amount. Rival lines, parallel routes, those which intersect and draw* any loeal travel, sod the increase of roads generally, divide the business and must reduce the dividends of all. As roon as the dividends of most of these companies be. come reduced to six and seven per cent, there will be an increase of capital in other methods of investment and doubtless a more rapid inerease in banking capi. tal. until that business becomes, in its turn, overdone and a collapse compels people to seek other ways oi rinployiDR their means.

Friday 29th? Dut few buyers appeared in the market, and holders lost the advantage they bad the preoeding day, the sales only amounting to 1,000 bales at some reduction from the previous pricesT When science, in her giant strides, can bring forward some method of picking out cotton on the buih, with the rapidity it is now giuned, wo may look forward to the production of the article to an extent greatly beyond the consumption, but at present, planters having to rely solely on their negro Jorce, there is no possibility of a greater amount that our last crop?which was picked with every favorable cironmstance, np to February last?being picked up to the 15th November, and not at all probable now, that this picking will keep pace with the other up to the 1st of Jaqpary. This oeing conceded, is it at all probable our crop can roach any of the large|e?timat<~s so freely put intoclrculation? In the absence of any impediments by storms, and with barely remunerating prices, say Middlings at 6>? cents a? New Orleans, a portion of their feree may be employed until the time for breaking ground for the next planting, say 1st March next; but we cannot judgonowof the amount it is possible to pick within that time; we must first know now the fields appear in November, after a killing first, and when the foliage is ofT. The weather yesterday was quite stormy, whioh doubtless had its efTect on operators, as there was but little movement either way.

Chick.o, Sept. 23 ?The tightness which existed in the money market for dome weeks back, had been almost entirely relieved by the receipt of fundi from the Ka?t and the pre;ence of eastern buyer* from Oswego, Buffalo, and different points in the Hast and Canada. The market, consequently, at the close of the week, was considerably buoyed up. At the commencement of the week, spring whnat was do low as 60c. for one while in the street*, under the pressurr of the tight money market, And a slight panic caused by the news from Kurope At the close, however, spring wheat roue to Too. a 80c., and winter went up to 85o. The receipts this week are not so largo as those of last. and will not probably reach over 80.000 bushels. This is on account of bad roads, and low water in the canal. Flour is $4 a $5 for fine, and $H 25 for otty superfine Coris.?What comes In by canal ban been purchase*! principally on the' river, on acoount of house* here, and shipped immediately on arrival. Corn is 37c a 4Cc Oats are lHo, a 20c., with but little in market. Freights are 8c., at which rate vessels are loading for Buffalo. 15c. a ltic. are the rates to Oswego. At the oloso, on Saturday afternoon, on aooount of a panic among buyers, on light receipts, the market nnm to I 60c. for spring. Tlie Crop*. Of the orops on the Upper Mississippi, the St. Louis Republican says :?l> The wheat crop, which has been gathered, is unusually abundant. A small portion wm lost or injured by the heavy rains, but the bulk of the I crop has been harvested in good order. The corn crop. , we nave reliable information, was never butter than it I is this season In the valloy of the Mississippi, and every where, the reports agree as to the abundance of j the product. The same may be said of the grass crop; it has been very abundant, and furnishes u large supj ply for the feeding of stock, and also for shipment In the couth-eastern part of this State, and in southern 1 Illinois, the raising of hay (or the Southern market has i become an extensive business We know many farmers who will bale their hay and send it South, realizing. in proportion to the labor and risk, nearly as much per acre us the cotton planter The crops of oats, barley and spring grains, suffered some from the rai ns of June and July, but, nevertheless, are very abundant and equal to the demand." The Savannah Georgian, of Tuesday, says " The accounts continue favorable for the Upland orop of | (ieorgiu. The Seu Island has in oiost localities suffered much from the intense heat and dry weather since : the middle of August. The Sea Island crop cannot, I by all the it formation we can obtain, turn out to be ! greater than the very moderate one of last year." The Memphis Eagle, of the 15th instant, nays :?" A i jaunt of a few days into the country satisfies us, from : observation and inquiry, that, barring further casuulI ties of weather, our cotton crop, comprising an area of | country producing, say 200,000 bales, will be fully an : average one The chief complaint is, that the plant | is not well boiled; but we find it is much larger than ; usual, which makes up for the thinner bearrtig." According to the lilue //en's Chicken, the corn in I Delaware will be 16 or 20 bushels less to the acre than | last year, in consequence of the late drought; the oats 1 are light, and late potatoes will not be more than fourth of a orop. There will be hardly any cabbages. The Buton Rouge Gazelle, of Saturday, nays ''The ! continued rains have been very injurious to the cot; ton crops in this parish. Such a season is not within I the recollection of the oldest inhabitant," A Santa F< (Now Mexico) paper statos that the crops throughout that country are said to look | line, and to bid fair to yield a bountiful harvest to the growers. A much larger amount^ of grain has been planted this year tLan in any previous soason.

Constitutionality to be TetteU, ireThe temperance folks and the tivern keepers lave goae to war in this city in good earnest, and lie conflict will gite considerable business for the ourts. At the lust session of the Legislature, a ill was parsed imposing f? fine of $100, and a for;iture of license on the second offence, on any lveni keeper who should sell liquor on Sunday, "he law was generally obey?-(| lor two or three reeks, and has since, witli i**rhapa a dozen excepons, been totally disregarded; mid there is now lore drunkenness 111 our ttrrei* on .Sunday than lere was before tin* days ol temperance societies nd the Sons of Temperance; lor the reason that >r?e, to evade the law, rtceive no money from letr customers on that day. The grand jury, which has just adjourned, has turned upwards of one hundred true bills against ur taveiu-keepers for a viulation of the law, and t is the intention of one of them to confess judglent, and cairy the case immediately to the Court 1 Appeals, and it the constitutionality of the law s sustained there, it will then be carried to the Supreme Court of the United States. A meeting of the tavern lieei>ers is called this Homing, and it is in contemplation to raise a fund, y the contribute n ot $2 troni each of our nine mndred julep venders, to defray the expenses of esting the constitutionality of the law. On the iiher hand, the Washinittonian Temperance Solety have contributed $500 to employ able counel to detend the constitutionality of the law, and t is said that the Sons of Temperance will silently ontribute the same sum for sustaining the proseution. If the law for preventintr a man from l< is dry goods store open on .Sunday, mid vending is goods, is constitutional, there ih no doubt that ivern keepers, confectioner# und oyster house eepers, ure equally lialile.
