Why is this? Obri- .fely, bccuuse the New York and other Banks the emit have drained their specie basis. The u e thing probably had gone on throughout e west. But how long this to list? Tlie blcs muat soon be turned. Il the nest has j surplus ut nil, the nmst toou be in ftuur.

BRODERICC lio Miirtler m JLet tlio People Tit Ink. There is cause to regret that there is., no eaus, of purging the United Slatca Senate at resent of one 61 the from Ca- lorom, however useful he might be in biune oiiter culling, mistook bis vocation as snflly ua dill ihu Legislature which elected him, when he undertook tho duties of of Commerce. Such laiiKuogo of tlm Journal of Commerce, on iLo tiny before the dealh of Broderick. Those of our readers who do not seo the Journal of" Commerce, may noL under- stand the s' stand the significance of ihie paragraph. That paper is the drgan of what ia culled convcr- sution." Ic ig very decent, 'very moral, and very Union loving. Of couise it is very Demo- cratic, and very Pro-Slave) y. It is lhe organ of great bankers, like August great politicians, like James Buchanan great cot- ton planters, and great ship owners. In one word, it is lhe vary quintessence of sham De- mucracy. At the very time when the murder of Broderick wus contemplated, this organ of law, older and sound morals was groaning inwardly, tbat there is no means of puiging the Senate oi Broderict. It need wail no more ibe means were found. The great demand for those mean's brought forth the murderer. The deed is done! Do any of our renders think there is no con- nection between such a paragraph and such a result? Let them think, then, how great must huve been tno bitterness with which Broderick was pursued, when this staid and dectiit paper lets out EUOU a spiteful sentiment. But why should it be important to get rid of BrtQBTiok? There ure worse men in ibc Senate than he uver nits. Thti impression that Broderick was one of the people who had won position by his ability and honesty. When Hammond, of South Carolina, insolently pie- son ted the contrast between tho aristocrat v. raised upon Blare labor, nmj the mud other words, freii laborers of ihc Free States, Broderick replied, thut he was one of those mud sills, aud civilly, but plainly told vaporing Senator in what relation this laboring class snood to the strength and prosperity of this country. In Lhe same manner, when one of the greatest frauds ever devised among an intelligent people, attempted to be carried out, in the name cracy, Brodcriuk denounced and resist- oi Dt nd it. lie resisted slavery utid corruption, and had the ability to resist them suuci This thu unpardonable sin, and he was pursued to ihc death. Lei tlie. people think, before it is too late, whether tbe stability and morals of our country ciin long endure the corrupt influences which have been brought into the government by ibo Sliani Gazelle.
