Casserly, J. P. Haven and V. B. Polhemus. Mr. fi/ioHT appeared and made a statement of the af faira of the house of Page, Baooa 4 Co., which ex li tiled a balance of $1,0(0 COO over an 1 above all their labilities. Mr. Blssell read an extract from a private letter from Hew York, allowing that bad faith in certain agents in New York was the cause of the stoppage of the St. Louis The committee appointed to draft resolutions reported the following Whereas. The State of California, during a season of gene ral dentession and trial, unexampled id this generation of men. and aggravated to her by the diminution of the usual yieft of h?r mlses from tlie lack ef seasonable rains, has not ?Blv sustained her oredit at home and abroad, bnt has sup ?crtsd the whole Union through the crisis with a fidelity aad pewr at reaouroes which challenge the respect, as they tuve axeaedrd the expectations, of tho world ; and, whereas, this result, so honorable and advantageous to California, is malty due to the energy, liberality and puhlic spirit, vbieb in an eminent degree have characteriied the several ?aosllent and raliable banking houses in this Stats, in their transactions with the community ; and, whereas, reports Shia morning received from the Atlantic States, ace calcu lated, unlets properly underatood. to create an unnecosaary excitement prejudicial to onr entire people , therefore, be it Resolved, Aa the sentiment of Lhis m eting. of the mer santlls, mechanical and Miaiuess classes generally. t That in our judgment the worst of tbe recnt pressure haa passed away in California, and that a itreatly improved state of affaire is already at hand, in whieh all the business will be re-established upon a sound basit, and the real proa ferity oi the country will be confirmed on iti true founds (tea. 2. That in onr judgment the banking houses of this city and Statu are this dsy sound and solvent to a decree unar proached in the United States or Europe, and abundantly ?hie to meet the demand upon theiu. and they merit tbe ooafidenco urd support of every man identified with Califor nia, or interested in her prosperity 3. That thefnture will show, aa tbe past has shown, tri smphantly that as Californiana ?e must and can rely upon each other, and ourselves alone, for support and auccesa in every crisis cf business; and having already weathered the teigbt of the storm, we perceive no reason for the psrtisl exoltcment amon,; some of onr fellow citizens, which can kave no good result, and which we are convinced is without sev irood foundation. 4. That as a mark of our own sincerity in these resolu tions, and onr complete confidence in tbe banking h?a* ?>? of tke eity and State, we pledge ouraelve* to each other and to them to continue our deposits, accounts and transactions with them as heretofore in every particular, and to give them nnder all circumstances a cordial and united co* operation and support. fl.

Ilka tint banking house in the country cannot alwaye foresee a run. It* own poaition ant ability to go through a crista It caa ascertain, and ought not to withold from those who hare an interest and a right to know. months a leading banking houne in tnis city has been quietly strengthening itself and sustaining its parent house elsewhere at the expense of every other banking bonse here, and especially of ours. The house of tdams A Co. hold to day thousands of dollars in bllla receivable from our merchants for indispensable accommodations wherewith to meet their loans suddenly called in, and for which the hard cash has left our vaults . Could we have known upon the arrival of the Nicara gua steamer, Feb. 4. of the protest of the pap?>r of Page & Bacon, of St. I.ouis, in Wall street, Jan. 12, the day of the depaitnre of the Nicaragua a learner on the other aide, or that there wax reason to apprehend nucha mishap. the other banking houses, and Adams & Co am?ng them, could have prepared themselves fir the worst F.ven after the run on Page, Bacon & Co., of this city, Satunlay, Feb. 17. bud it been possible, by any amount of diligence, to ascertain the true position of that house, Adams & Co. could even then have prepared for the worst. Unfortu nately, It was not pos-ible. Either from ignorance of its own condition, or for seme other reason best understood by itself, that nou?e not only tilled the public and it- friends with unfoauded ideas of its strength and resources, but imposed upin the anxious scrutiny even of the other banting house*. To repeated inquiries, to entreat:*' the most urgent, our hous<- received always the assurance of the perfect ability of Page. Bacon & Co to meet any run. There fore it wan that we did cot concentrate our resources here from all parts of tho State, as we wouM have done had the truth been revealed, or even hinted to us. On the contrary, we sent away cur best re sources. having forwarder into the interior on Slnudty, Tuesday and Wednesday of last weak, more tlianAloOOOO in coin for the purchase of gold dust alone for the weet ly shipment, while we allowed another larire aeiojnt of cem to be invested in bullion on the way for th* -sime i shipment. More than this we freely expended the coin which was our life blood, in our efforts to susUin that bouse, in redeeming their certificates throughout the State, and in every other way. Such was our condition when. on Wednesday night, at a late hour, our hou-e was astounded by the sen that Page, Eicon k Co. were unable to go on, and would not again open their door-. It was an event which not only fal ifled the repeated and solemn assurances given by that house, but which found us destitute of the preparations which, hut for those arsurances, we should most certainly hive made. It was an event, too, which was aggravated in the highest degree by the tone and temper of the extra ordinary circular which announced it to the public. February 2-, was a day of general celebration, and 1 hoped, with the large amount of gold dust in our vaults, we could meet the crisis then evidently impending. Bui between 1 and 4 P M., of that day, I found a run had quietly set in, which took from us, in about two hours, over $1100, Coo in coin, and wo saw that unless our supply of coin could be replenished, we must to protect the rigbts of all our creditors, in the city and throughout the mines, close our door*. Immediately, an 1 all that night, we made every effort which men coald, every where in town, to procure coin. Gold dust w> hud; I had my own private property and the property of our friends which, with unparalleled generosity, t.hey hid placed at ourelsponal. We offered a million and a quar ter of dollars in tlie best securities in the world to raise one- fifth of the sum in coin. Evenr elTort and every sa crifice were in ?ain; it could not be done. The rest U known. These are facts which it is painful for me to present to the public. Hitherto I have withheld them out of regird to tbe feelings ot otters, for whom I had al kij? enter tained high consideration. Hut the evident disposition, in a few quarters, to misrepresent or misunderstand the merits of the cuse, lias forced me to a disclosure which I could not longer hare withheld without projudice to our bonse. These being the facts of our suspension. I desire to make tho creditors of the house throughout the Staie the following proposition: ? That within tnirty diys from this date the reo?iver 'hall pay them twenty five per cent, in cash, upon ull our claims. That the creditors shall receive the bi'anco of their claims from the receiver as fast al he can declare the dividends, and for this purpose he shall be allowed to ad minister tho assets, notes, real estate, ke , of the house, and realize them as promptly as possible, without hin ' drar.ee, and to the best advantage tor the creditors; and for tbe greater security of tl<e creditors that bis pro lent bonds, which are for one million of dollars, shall be increased it deemed necessary. That Adums k Co. alt all be ulliwed to resume their business as heretofore, with such ai l as they can obtain from their friends and customers; and ia th's connection I am deeply gratified to state that the whole body of our clerki, with a devotion to the house which they have dene so much to build up, for whi-h no word) can than1! them, have volunteered, each aid all, their servije-i for an entire year, without hire or rewaro beyond a bare akbsUtcnce. As it is desirable that we should obtain as promp'ly as possible tbe sense ot our creditors upon tins proposi tion, which I am confident is for their b?st interests, and will secure the early paym?nt of their clainu in full, we earnestly request them to notify us at our bund ing house, in San Fransisco, of their a .sent thereto 1 n?-ed not say how acceptable that assent wtU be, nor 'bat we shall endeavor to requite i^jwith the same energy and fidelity, of which we hope riie public ha? had Jome proof in its former deillng* with our house.

Attachment after at tachment in levied on theii properly. The riheriff was on the aleit, and u fait aa the stage* arrived from the interior, ho wan ready to attach any treasure that might belong to fhe bouse Their vault! were cloned and an ollicei stationed there. All sorts or rumors were atloat as to their solvency or insolvency, and great speculation* advanced as to the prospect of reeovermg anything. In deed, there was a great deal of alarm and excitement. Io the meantime another telegraphic despatch announced that Wells, Fargo & Co. hta suxpendea. This seemed to be the finishing strok* for the d*y attq iUfy on* Was on tb? qu\ vtve- Urge depesliors M well as small ones. It is almost impossible to describe the feeltng among our business men Their confident* in the banking housns of this State remained unimpaired until this last intelli gence. Now there was ni calculation where the fail urea would end. Soon aga'n the telegraph annottn-^ed tbat every banking bouse in San Francisco had suspenl ed. This capped the climax ? excitement ran higher and higher, until the first lsw of nature, self preservation, seemed to be the ruling passion of every one. All classes of our citizens, merchants ax well as laboring men and mechanics, made a run for their deposit-. Wells, Fargo & Co paid every claim that was presented to themln that city. I he Stat( Tribune of Feb. 25, says, th?t about ten o'clock on Thursday morning the bank ng house of 1'age, i'aron & Co. closed in Sacramento lu the course of an hour the suspension was known all over town, and hun dreds who bad m> ney deposited with them could be seen hurrying down to Ibe bank? to takealoik. if nothing more, at the spot where their little all bad been plaited for safe keep Dg. During the day a c-.ns dertble crowd, many of them recently from the mines, were congregated on tbe corner of Front and J street*, in front of the bank, bot all verj quiet and orderly? no loud expression of feel ing or disappointment was manifested, and all seemed to be impressed with the idea that they would get their de posits before long. We beard of many individual esses of losses, varying firm one to fifteen tboussn 1 dollars. On* man, an ex Aldeiman of this city, sold out a large stock of go .els a few days since, and deposited the proceeds? $15, 000 ? with tk s firm. Another person, who enme down from tbe mines on Wednesday night last, deposited t'< 00d early yesterday morning, or within an hour of their closing up All of tbe real estate owned by the firm and individual members of it was attached immediately upon news of tbe suspension being published. The effects htve all been transft rred to tbe hand* of a receiver, who will await the order of the court in San Krancmco, whore the injunction was issued compelling Page, flucon ft Co. to refrain from paying out any money until further or dered. IM. ACER VI L I.E. Adams ft Co. suspended all banking business on tbe i!3d Feb. The excitement is gradually gaining ground us tbe report spreads Crowds have been collected around the dill'erent banking houses during tbe evening discus ing the chances of getting their depos'ts. It is thought tbe deposits In this bouse will not fall ftr short of COO. Saturday and Sunday we expect the excite ment to reach its climax, as by that time it will be gene rally known throughout tbis vicinity. Wells, Fargo & Co , up to the present time, have paid all certificates of deposit that have been presented. Ihe business men in town have cot expressed any doubts as to the solvency of this house, an 1 have not withdrawn their deposits. GKASS VALLEY. The commeucement of the suspension of Adams & Co. created un unprecedented excitement in town. When tlie "fti:e was closed, Mr. Tilley was placed in .charge as receiver. As tbe ill-tid.ngs spread, squads of miuera Uocked In from the adjacent diggings. The exoitement, fontered b? injudicions persons, waxed greater towards evening, and threats were made by tlio more illiterate portion of the community that a mob would be raised and tbe building attacked, but the determined stand taken by the (rii nds of the house prevented the threats Irom be'ng carried into eiiect. The oflice of Wells, Fargo & Co continued op?n and the bnlk of their deposits paid out. Attachments were taken out against A'iams k Co. to a small amount, and the oflice placed in charge.

Special deposits called tor wore frealy handed out, but no mon?y or special deposits were paid. Almost immediately a run commenced on Wells, Fargo & Co., who honored all dralti till 2 o'clock P.

The banking hour* of Adams & Co . was closed at an early hour this morning. As hood ?h the fact was known, there wan -om > little excitement among depositor.). Quite a number called on them for their treasure, but were obliged to leaTe without it, and await tbe result. Wells, Fargo k Co have had a verjr heavy tun on them, but up to tbe hour of closing for the day, all de positors have been promptly paid ?n demand.

On tbe '.JUt ot February, a number of freight bills, due one of the clippers discharging in tbe harbor, were paid in checks on l'a?e, Ilacon k Co. Thete chf.ks were not presented at tbe bmkin^ house on which they were drawn, but were either paid into other houses, fir ex change, or were held over by the recipient The houte of I'sge, lJacon k Co. having closed yepterday, they werere'urnod to the drawers, bat the latter claim, as we understand, that they are uot responsible, as the firm on which the checks were drawn, bad not suspend ed at the time they were given The question arises, who will be tbe pareies entitled to the checks, the reci pient of them, or the drawers ! We further learn that the vessel alluded to refused to deliver any more goods to the parties, until tin checks were cancelled, and in consequence censed unloading. Kern River Mine*.

For some time previous to the advent of tbe Pampero, last week, there had been but few arrivals of clipper ships at this pert. Beyond a lumber brig or bark from Oregon, and a few coasters from down the coast or Tomalez, together with the regu lar Honolulu schooner and paekets, our pilots had nothing to report. But the Pampero proved the bead of a long li*t. Immediately following came the Sweep stakes, the Southern Cross, and the Bald Eagle, on suc cessive days. Tlif Hussar and the Phantom followed in quick succex ion, and yeaterlay, mirabk dictu, then came to hand twelve vessels from foreign ports.

Of Frenchmen, there were tbe Nouvel Alfred, the Paquette des Mers da Sud, and the Washington, from Borteaux.

Qoite an excittm'nt was created in Wall street thin morr lrir by the arrival of the steamship North ern Light, of the Nicaragua line, with advices, in about twenty dijs from San Francisco, announcing .the suspension of about ha.f a dozen banking houses of that > ity. The ex< itemed did not take any par ticular shape, and had no unfavorable influence upo? the stock nrarket. The news brought by this anival vv anticipated, and tbe efl'eit was therefore of a very temporary character. When the auspen lien of Page & Bacon of 8t. Lou?, occu*red last January, it was well known that the receipt of the intelligence in California would produce a panic cmo g depositors in tbe banking house of Page, Bacon & Co., and all tbe other banking houses of Kan Franciico. The result has been no more than expected. The panic which seized upon all dawns was very intense, but such measures had been taken ts were best calculated to allay all apprehen sion, acd the probability was at the manmt the steamer left, that a few days would suffice to teslore confidence and bo?iresH to Its usual channel 4. At tbe first board tadar, the brokers were therocghly posted in regard to the Californian advices, acd operations were made with a foil knowledge of the trfl.ng rc eipt of specie, and the nature of public and private accounts? notwith standing which, it will be st-en prices advanced.

After the fljgt Board there was considerable activity, at high prices. Eii? Railroad appears to bare taken quite a start in priws, without much doing in shires. There are tumors of a stock dividend by this com' pany regularly, after this season, 1<J the extent of the aecumulatioDs in the sinking fund. This ia?o more than just and proper. We hold that the di rectors bare no right to reduce indebtedness with ont g viug stockholders its equivalent in stock. The Erie Company will be obliged to oome to this, and the stockholders should at once i>uist flfAh 11. U the stating fund liquidates four hundred and fifty thousand dollars of debt durifig the present year, thit amount should go to the stockholders in scrip. In this way debt will be displaced by stock, and ultimately the stock will hold a more important po* sltion in the sale. After the adjournment of the board, the following rales cf bonds and stocks were made at auction by A. H. Nicolay.

State stocks were comparatively quiet this after, noon, but prices were sustained. The transactions at the Assistant Treasurer's of fice to-day were as follows: ?

This is a stock company or association, with a capital of $500,000, and a very substantial, wealthy class of stockholders. There is no doubt but that the next steamer from San Francisco will bring accconts of the resumption of the agency at that point, and a re-establishment of the re ?( alar business. This concern received a small remittanoe by the Northern Light, which is pretty good evi dence that the house in San Francisco has shus life-blood Itft.

Tiese variations are of nt on fe^nence, but they serve to show a strength and uniformity in the banking movement of this city, almost nnpreccdetted In its history. The tempo taiy cessation of remittances from California , grow ing cut of ? panic in financial circles of that section, has now co terrers for us. Oar banks are so strongly fortified with gold that no change is mule ! in their operations to guard against any excite ment or demand from mercantile suspension*. It will be a temporary relief to car banking Institu tions to keep back supplies for a time, and if it would act as ? slight check upon the ex mud jn of credit going en it weald be a blessing, install of an injnry. The gold is accumulating in viiifornia, i and it mn t ultimately rtach this g eit tlaa>i:l?l centre. It may tw del iyed for several week*, until the people of San Francisco have coo'ed down and <aken a more sober view of thing*, and arrival at , the con> iusion that they have b?en more fri^hte^ed tban hurt. It may take weeks to do th s; but we ! ock for better accounts by the next sttamer, and by every succeeding steam ?r, until all vestiges of the pani: disappear. It is not at all extraordinary that so muy braking houses should suspend in California upon the receipt of intelligence from the Atlantic Statse such as that taken out by the steamer of the 19th January last. Very few banking houses in this .wintry, m mi'.ter where they are situated, could meet all their en gagements, if presented at once, and the movement in Pan Francisco should not be looked upon as an ordiiary matter, but one in which the mlads of men are not permitted to ast understsodlngly. The steamer from this side, which followed that of 'he !9th cf January, carried out favcrable advices, and the eff- et could not have been o'herwise than the >ame. We are uow In the midst of the worst of this Ca 1'ornie exc!*creent. It is not connected with an< cf our commercial operations. It ha* nothing ! to do with bn?lr.cp* on tbs Atlantic sl'pe of the I t.o -ticnu, tit .in. un '.f BKa.y jjvo ??<! In tbe ?aepeneion ia owned by hundred* of miners otbera who have gradually accumulated frt| earringH.
