Our de Termini Kation to pursue this course is the result Many years experience in the business affairs life. The same lessons experience have taught Many our Best commercial men to change their whole Couise and instead a mixed system credit and Cash to adopt explosively the Cash principle in All their future business affairs.

When the Bill for repealing the charter comes up for consideration there will no doubt be a pretty warm time and though there is no Strong probability the passage the Bill it will Mcm to with considerable support. The Senate to Day passed a Bill to provide for the transferring Stock Testate Indiana. It provides that the person desiring to Transfer such Stock shall deliver it to the agent the state in the City new York taking his receipt therefor who shall immediately for Saiid the same to the auditor state who shall cancel the same and Issue new certificates which shall be signed by the auditor and treasurer state and immediately returned by the agent state.

The House this morning passed a joint Resolution instructing our delegation in Congress to a claim in favor this state against the general government for rent rooms in the Capitol per year for the use the Federal courts from the year 1836 to 1858 inclusive at the rate five Hundred dollars per year. In obedience to a Resolution passed by the House the 25th nov last calling for certain expenditures by the various persons who have held the office state librarian the auditor state to Day reported As follows to John b.

Whether this can be accounted for very satisfactorily is questionable and reports not very flattering to the watchfulness and Economy not to say anything in reference to integrity tie present incumbent circulate very freely in the neighbourhood the Capitol.
