Tho present Bank of the stale to have inherited from the Day of its birth a opposition which for intensity and bitter Ness it has not fallen to the lot of any Sim Ilar institution in the not in Tow state to resist. Much of this has undoubtedly Arisen from causes connected with Tho obtaining of tie charter and Tho distribution of the Stock into the hands original holders. Gov. Wright vetoed Tho Bill a first 6tcp in opposition. Tic legislature passed Tho Dili authorising its establishment Over Tho veto. At the meeting of the next legislature he denounced it in his message and a committee was appointed to Gato Ati of debate or from other existing causes he is Lead to say Wlms ought not to have been Laid will at onco Mako Tho amende Honora ble and in doing to Neuwir the More the gentleman. And on the other hand to knowingly insults another without making amende for it is not a gentleman on that very account is unworthy of notice and howl do cum to notice him further than to rebuke him Pulu himself Down to Hia who the 1 Oor Man to a Bill recently introduced into Ali llyu.5c of in relation to so Xcvi Bijj Public lands and providing for twi settlement or. Grow of Pennsylvania offered the following amendment lie item Thor mat it a that from and after the of thu no Public land shall be exposed to Sale by proclamation of the president unless the same shall have been Liuro Rcd and the return of such Survey do y filed in the land oth be for ten years or More before such Sale. The effect of this amendment if adopted and the Bill had become a Law would have been to let the poor Man who settles in tin a West have ten years in which to buy the a and to make the Nio Uey therefor out of the very soil itself upon which he in have squatted. Under Sohland and Wise Tho foundation of his complaint who published an elaborate report on the subject after the legislature had , which gave a full history of All the Means resorted to by which Tho charter was obtained Aid which shows Homo of the Par ties interested in not a very enviable Light this did not disturb Tho Confidence reposed in the institution by the people. The Bank Bavin in the mean time got under la the same legislature which authorized this investigation a Resolution was introduced and referred to the judiciary commit tee Loong to a repeal of its charter hut the committee reported against it. Gov. Wright then instituted proceedings in court in the nature of a writ of quo warranty inquiring into the authority by which the institution exercised the Powers of a Bank hoping to get n decision against it but Tho court held that the Hank was legally chartered and held its franchises by constitutional right. The Case was appealed to the supreme court and that has lately continued the judgment of he court below. Would think that opposition had now to meet the ends of a provision any Maas this Hud it become a Law Tice that but been carried far Noi Justice and to gratify party or personal like but it so cons not for we notice thai a few Days a Bill was introduced into the Senate of the state by or. Conley for repealing Tho charter of the Bank which we of suit of this embers of the voting for and was referred to a committee messes. Conley March. Clr Lefren. A Hal is to be Thi movement to do not know but we to learn that Republican legislature Are advocating of Biu Taining this utter movement Winch it Suric Duful is fraught with ruinous Conse quinces to the Best interests of the state. W by republicans should want to Sha a in a warfare which lad its beginning chiefly with the democracy we arc at a loss to conceive. That parly by instrumental in passing the Bill by which the Bank was chartered. The fight about it Ever since been principally confined to members of that parly and Why not let them Havo the credit of fighting it out to an end that will be anything but creditable to the state should the Bank to crushed in the struggle. It should not be forgot 11 in the country it matters not How poor he May have been if he could but Gemi on the unsettled lands of the West i Ould have had an Opportunity of at one to tuck pc a living and of recur ing for himself a Good farm at the end of a few yers. Yet this amendment was vat cd Down b a vote 82 to 07, and the Bill itself def Cati by a vote of 91 to the re Millica voting for the measure and nearly All the democrats against Southern demo Crau in a solid pin lax against it.

Instead of giving mat ers that immediately concern their readers la Rhome incidents and enterprises gossip my spoliation and thus becoming useful ii ii in Day and generation at Home and the canal meeting on wednesday night it the court House was Well Sam l. Edsall was called to the chair and Henry j. Rudisill made Secretary. The following Resolution offered by Hen re Baker was adopted after a lengthy de Bate in which the relations of the state to the Bond holders the nature and extent of the Trust the value of inn canal to the pc of that part of the state through which t runs and the necessity of adopting some of keeping it in that the Bank a not now in the hands of Thosa who or it. Its controlling management has passed into the hands of the substantial Ami conservative men of the slate men of Capi Tal and business the same men indeed who so managed the Bank of the slate and from whom the school fund realized the Large sum of As the state s share of its Twenty there is no Bank in the West or in the East that has a better credit to Day or is More deservedly popular than the present Bank of Tho state and All because of the Tai _ All discussed. The debate was Par Uci Palcal in by messes. J. U Williams ii. Combs Henry Baker w. Garwin Saiu l Hanna Peter p. Bailey. Jen Kinin Ami s. Edwall. Liat our s Senta Tives in the legislature repro of tic state Tor a to and they Are hereby requested to use their efforts to procure such necessary Cigis lation at the present Sebi ii of the i Gisla Turc As will insure the open of the canal it in re in nine cases out of ten they Bur Medves with ponderous matter from he City is bad enough at first and at stolid hand is Mere lumber to Eun with the commercial that is of great value but Jim idea Here inculcated ocal news gossip and Home incidents and into Jurisc Are the Only things of value in a country town or Village newspaper pub Ishida few hours ride from Tho great ecu of critics Trade and it in Dies either that people who read country newspapers feel no interest have any taste for or Are incapacitated from want o intelligence to appreciate the general news of the Day from All Purt Sof the that this More extended information should be furnished to such country readers through the medium of newspapers published in Hose great political Noth ing for the local press to do but to publish local news. Country papers under Tho plan of the commercial would doubtless become very valuable adjuncts to the City papers in furnishing them with local items but for All other purposes of a newspaper such As Are demanded by a Reading and intelligent Community they would be totally to pen an note the weather and report the proceedings of a police court May be very Well As far As they go but this constituted a very Sciull proportion of the whole mass of Reading matter necessary i make a newspaper such As any Community of Ordinary intelligence would support. Who Pray is so stupid As to be satisfied with Reading the accounts of fire was and other Small items making up the local columns of a newspaper those Are but the incidents thrown in As it were valuable to be sure As far As they go but by themselves arc of but Little consequence. It is the Stiring events of the whole world that the Reading people want to be kept ii formed about. They want of know what Isgo Ingon at the National Capitol at the centers of thought whether at Home Ora Broad and an Intel Tai no mind will not be satisfied with less and i the country press does not furnish it t be City papers would be taken instead. The commercial s suggestions Are Good As a design to Root out the country Piess and Institute in its Stead the lation of the City papers. Such is evidently the tie sign of the article from we have quoted and it amounts ii it to an attack upon the country press should resented. For ours Lvcas we arc now publishing daiy the news of the whole world at the to int almost that such events transpire and Lay them a Coors our readers immediate a.

We also learn that governor Chase of Ohio has written to gov. Villard of this state upon thu subject. The democratic member of the sen ate of the u. S. Voted the other Day not to admit Lane and Mccarty of Indiana to Tho floor to in head on the question of their right to Douglas was not present but said afterwards that lie would voted for their being heard.
