He broke the Seal with a nervous Force coding of trouble for of late these letters by the hands of private messengers had in in frequent and rarely of an agreeable character. From the envelope a he commenced withdrawing the letter there dropped upon the desk a narrow piece of paper folded like a Hill. Be took it up with almost reluctant fingers it my slowly pressed Back the cud so As to read its face and comprehend its ii Hurt. Twice i eyes went Over the Brief lines before he w As Clear As to their meaning. They were a follows received january 1, 18�?, of Abram James one thousand dollars in full of All demands.

I have seen clearer since and wish to act from a better principle. My own affairs Are prosperous. During the year which has just closed my profits have been better Thau in any year since i started business. Your affairs on the Contra words of my child found no Echo in my heart. I could Havo wept Over her if Tho strength of manhood had not risen no voc the w Eknes of nature. But All is changed now. A few minutes ago the a Happy new year was flowing to my from the Sweet lips of Iny child and Tho words went thrilling in gladness to my May the Day close us happily for you and yours in it is closing for Inu and mine a of mess you Aukam James. . Elgar read this letter twice and thou handed it without a word to Nis wife. A what i Tho meaning of this i i do not understand it mrs. Elgar looked wonderingly into her husbands face. The Story to which she listened eagerly was briefly told. When he had finished a he arose and with team of love and sympathy in her eyes crossed Over to where he was sitting Aud drawing her arms around his Rcck said a my Good Iny generous husband i feel very proud of Yon this night. That was h Noble deed and i thank you for it in thu name of our common never had word from Tho lips of i wife sounded so pleasantly in the cars of . Edgar. Nuver had to known so Happy a now years Day As the one which had just closed and though it saw him poorer than he believed himself in the morning by nearly a thousand doll an he was Richer in feeling Richer in the hearts a wasting Possession so than he had Ever a Ceniu his life. Natural. Panics and revulsion have occurred in Tho commercial world with nearly each successive generation during the hut two Hundred years. There have Boen repeated Day of adversity and men Havo not considered Tho Law of compensation seems not to apply Here As elsewhere. The Oft recurring disasters in Commero embarrassments in Trade distress in business have not served to inculcate that measure of Wisdom essential to a Renu Vutison of Tho pernicious business systems which prevail and nto Essar to prevent a recurrence of similar periods of punic and revulsion. A variety of causes have undoubtedly contributed to Tho present embarrassed Gondi Tion in Tho inon tary and business Afi Aini of Tho country. A general statement embracing Many of them is that which attributes it in n great measure to Over action in All thu de Nortu Neuls of brain re and Enterprise and extravagance of expenditure in both Public und private of fairs the incentives to this Public and private excess Are numerous and Strong general und special. Tho american mind Acu perpetually under in intense sentiment of if our example May to wild to inspire the democracy of other nations with Tho loftiest Ideus in respect to Tho Mission of the Model Republic Quot it is equally True that our own Propios share in Tho inspiration. Its phys Cul nature Aud position and its advancement in All the elements of natural Power and greatness Are equally inspiring its territory already embracing one tenth of the habitable Globe from thirteen feeble colonies having increased to thirty on Independent suite Sovereign ties and still forming in rapid succession its agriculture rewarding the hu�b., with marvellous abundance its Commerce having already placed it in the first rank of commit Cal nations in railroads intersecting Tho country at All Poilu and involving the outlay of hundreds of millions of dollars in manufactures and inc Hanio arts having reached Tho Point of successful Competition with the oldest Salt tons these serve perpetually to stimulate the people and to beget in them a spirit of restless Enterprise and of extreme activity. This overpowering National impulse finds in gratification also in corresponding private and social displays a in elegant Man personal an Economy which shall criticise a ions costly furniture splendid equipage the fitness of the smallest item of outlay and divested of High Aims takes on Tho and Force within the narrow it limits both More questionable character of indulgence Public and private disc fitment. Embarrass in Mere trappings and thus the habitat of ment has not Home because the to Croce of Domestic and social life Beo Omo changed j wealth Are not abundant both in the Boun. Frein those of simplicity to to boat of Estravo Tice of nature and the creative Art of our a specie currency a Moat Likely to be uniform. As the Eire lotion of the Banks throughout the country is now mall the influx of Spaete urge the present nay be regarded Osa favourable Opportunity for Tome Prospect la pure drug Ned to retail a Petoie in Mot Tascol circulation. This object might be obtained and the Eire Tion of the previous metals among the people in Ordinary business provided for by prohibiting the Eiro Culloo of Small talk. Whether this method is not practicable so i scially in too est with other Stater in n w England 1 submit to your Oore Ful considerations. The belief u Gro eral that the banking a to Tern in this country is not so perfect of it ought to be and is the interests of the people require. The general in Poao Decd std that them inst motions by their alternate explosion and con traction Bhave contribute de to the present financial derangement together with their inability to meet their own promises to pay when the crisis came on is conclusive evidence both of Radical defect in to system and of its injurious character. Bank notes Are a Mere font Vanee to effect some of the purposes of Money their value consists in their Promisee to pay a certain amount of Money and that us persons among whom they circulate believe them promises will be kept. The character of the Bank like that of the merchant will depend upon its positive ability to perform its promises it does not Neoe airily follow that no Issue ought to be Mode beyond the Reserve of specie retained in hand. The very purpose of the Bank is to make other descriptions of property serve to a certain extent the pure Leo of specie. But what a hould be demanded of the Banks and they should be put upon such footing As to re quire it. Is that while the banker May be permitted so to manage As to have the least practicable circulation he should be held upon Bis peril to keep within his capacity of turning Bis effects into Spote so rapidly As to meet any possible demands from the Bills. Any system Bioh does not absolutely require this much and any practice of the Banks which puts it beyond their Power to perform this much is denied to be wholly wrong and unsafe. There should be no contingency where this Rule should be relaxed. As much is implied in the duties of the Bank to the Public and As much is demanded by the safety of the Public a suspension of specie payments by the Banks is either a violent implication upon the system upon its management. Tho of Banks in the state is an Ovil and a spirit of rivalry among Banks u Proi Nativo of evil. The legitimate Purpure of banking is to facilitate the Husmees of the Community. Banks should be located with strict reference to actual business wants. Where such wants re of Laymet by one bunk another should not be experience has shown that Competition Between Small Banks leads to the encourage ment of a class of paper not contemplated by the Laws. It is not understood that Tho temporary inability of our Banks to make specie pay Menta results from any want of ultimate ability to discharge All their liabilities. Nor is there just apprehension of their Suun Deere and the Security of the Public of connected with them. On the contrary they live maintained their credit with commendable promptitude during to prevalence of severest revulsion. Your judgement is invited to the of Sid ration of the question whether any measures Are necessary to prevent a recurrence of Bank suspensions and to provide against the effects upon the country consequent thereon. Whatever checks restrains you May think proper to throw around the system to protect the Community against injurious influences from that Quarter for the future if it to True that to a great extent the Prce ent prostrate condition of the Busin of the country and the apparent a Carcity of Money is attributable to extravagance of in vestment and individual extravagance investment which has Mado no adequate return and extravagance beyond the income a then it is obvious that the remedy the Case admit of and requires for permanent Relief is retrenchment and Economy of investment and Economy of expenditure in ail departments Publio and private individual and a the graveyard Kansas wherein four have buried their political existence within a oat two years besides two three acting they went there a a democrats of the first water Aud Wlms is remarkable All except whisky bloat Shannon poor fellow became genuine a Shrick Cra for Freedom a and thus were shot by their party.
