All who Are acquainted with the history of female character in ancient and modern Europe Are aware that christianity has ameliorated in an extraordinary degree the condition of women. Religion has restored them to their natural station in society As wives and mothers As daughters and Sisters. It has Given them the influence of temper Mannens and affection of sense and virtue instead of the Power of a haughty though degraded favorite or of a wedded partner Little less than a prisoner for life. It has indeed Given unto them Beauty for ashes the Oil of Joy for mourning the garment of Praise for the spirit of heaviness christianity has enlarged and dignified the sphere of their duty and usefulness has Puri died their feelings., cultivated their understandings and Given them a tenfold Reward of virtuous enjoyments. Under such influences women have Arisen from the degradation and wretchedness to which they had been consigned even by classical paganism. They have nobly vindicated their rights by the honorable and efficient discharge of the higher and better duties allotted to them. Our own country certainly affords the most Complete exemplification of this contrast. Let us now consider the chief argument derived from this View of female character. Not Only has religion exalted modern above ancient female Cliar Acter but it has improved the modern woman More than the modern Man. Per Hajis it May be said that Tipiere was More room for in to lenient in tie condition and attributes of the former than of tie latter. Licther this be so or not is immaterial for if a greater change has been wrought in the same period of time in tie one than in the other and religion has produced it my argument is still the same if Bot i were originally on a level and the former is now More advanced than the latter my proof is Complete. Or if woman had been More degraded than Man and both have exceedingly improved yet in such a ratio that the former is now As far advanced As in Point of fact women Are actually Iii a higher state of batteries constructed in this manner give no Shock they May be handled with perfect impunity As any other piece of Metal.

They then required the settler to sell his property to them and leave the country. He feared that they would otherwise take his life sold them his valuable property for $300, and departed with his family. The sheriff Quot was one of the purchasers. Preceding ones. It is a perfectly Clear and satisfactory exposition of the existing state of things and cannot fail to carry conviction to the minds of All. It shows that the course adopted by the Banks of Philadelphia was imperatively Weinand de by circumstances beyond their control and that it will be most conducive to the ultimate Benefit of the Community and country that the Bank of the United states has been actuated in this measure by the same spirit of patriotism and Wisdom which has guided All its proceedings and that it will be ready at a moment s warning to do its part in restoring mat ers to their former condition of peace and Gazette.

Len brass and Lienju lines amp a March 22 propulsion of Macii inky by electricity. We copy the following remarks in reference to a very remarkable discovery from the n. York evening Post of a late Date. One of the most remarkable discoveries of the age is the application of electricity to machinery As a moving Power. We have seen a machine now in this City invented by or. Davenport of Vermont and Impi Oveil by or Cook of Saratoga n. Y. And it appears to us that there exist no cause to it reveal the increase of the Power to any assignable limits and its application with the greatest simplicity ind of sect to every purpose for which steam is now used. It is not easy to describe this machine so As to give an idea of its construction a galvanic Battery is prepared furnished with wires proceeding from the opposite poles. The electric current proce Etling from these two poles sets in motion an Iron Cross wound with insulated Copper wire and revolving Between two semicircular eng tits. A particular description of the mat Hine and an explanation of the process by Wlinich this Renia Kahle effects produced will to found in Sil Linian f journal for the month of april Silliman arrives at the conclusion which appears to us justified from an inspection of Tho machine that the Power generated by it May be increased beyond any Licinit that can Cirii certainty be assigned by the increase of ail tie members of the apparatus. Nothing can be More admirable than the working of this Power both As respects the cheapness with which it obtained the directness with which it is applied the facility of increasing or diminishing it to suit any mechanical purpose and the absence of danger a Vanic that ten and a half Miles of the raft have been penetrated during the present season and he has Little doubt that the residue will have been passed thro by Tho 25th of next month. The three last Miles of the raft will it is expected be very heavy but i As the River is wide and deep at the Point no great difficulty is apprehended. It is believed Llinat boats will be found passing along through the Rau during the ensuing summer. The Captain Sealis frequently of Baijo is which doubtless Are the result of the stoppage of the River s current by the accumulation of the raft and which will in All probability disappear As soon As the obstacle shall be removed thus opening to cultivation a Large extent of Fertile soil and rendering the climate infinitely More healthy. Lieut Bowman of the u. S. Engineer corps who accompanied Captain Riddle in a late visit to the head of the raft has expressed a belief that owing to the unwillingness of the labourers to work after May and the difficulty of procuring hands the completion of the undertaking May be delayed beyond the time a specified b it that in any event it will be effected during the coming . Amer. Notions of some of the classifiers. There is but Little doubt that if the system be adopted the Erin mid Michigan canal will be thrown in these a cond perhaps in the third class and yet we Hazard nothing in the opinion that there is no work in this state that would yield More Revenue according to its Cost of construction than this. That a system of classification if adopted harmoniously and by the consent of the parties con corned might be beneficial there can be no doubt. Hut owing to the conflicting interests and views of the diff Crint portions of the state and the partiality naturally entertained by each for its own articular improvements we do not believe that such a system can now be adopted. It is More j Robabe that the opponents of internal improvement will take advantage of the dissection among its friends and subvert the whole policy. It Wayne sen. pets should be paid promptly Iii these pressing times it would be Well for men of business to remember the advice of s Filomon say not unto thy neighbor go and come again and to Morrow i will give when thou Hast it by thee we know men have not always Large sums by them but generally speaking it is in their Bovyer to pay Small Bills without putting the collector to the trouble of calling again and by doing so would prevent a great Deal of unnecessary embarrassment and suffering among Small dealers who depend upon their weekly receipts to carry on their business and support their families a gentlemen doing a Large business Are not Apt sufficiently to appreciate the importance of Small sums to those who Call for Thom to themselves it is nothing not Worth a thought but it is otherwise to him Whoso business is upon a More contracted scale and whose receipts consist entirely of Small sums and his disappointments Are not Tho less because the amount is . It May be quite As important to the individual who has a note of $1000 to pay to collect in Little ten Twenty and fifty Dollar debts to pay it with As it is for the merchant who has $10,000 to pay to collect in his ties hundreds and thousands. To the one a failure would be As ruinous As to the other though fewer people might suffer by the failure of the one than the other. At any rate we say Small debts can generally to paid on first Call especially to printers and gentlemen doing Large business should make it an invariable Rule not to allow to to called upon a second time for these Little sums say not unto thy neighbor go and come again and to Morrow i will give when thou Hast it by thee a Philadelphia com. Her. Vashti naw Bank a the notes of this Bank Are somewhat plenty in this Vicinity and we Are almost daily questioned As to our opinion of their value and the solvency of that institution. We Are free to confess that we entertain the most unlimited Confidence in its ability and integrity As at present constituted and managed. Its affairs since its embarrassment which was brought upon it by the miserable bungling of financial quacks particularly him who stood at its head have undergone a Complete regeneration and its management has been confided to Able and trusty hands. Had the present government of the Bank commenced with its organization a stoppage would not have taken place. We consider it now As Safe an institution As any in the West. We Are willing at any time to Exchange other Bills to any a mount that we May possess for those of the Bank of Washtenaw a it. Jayne Sci. Horrible most painful of our editorial duties is the recording of such dreadful atrocities As the following which we copy from the Louisville journal and the increasing brutal outrage fills the mind with shame regret arid distressing apprehensions of future evil. Removal of the indians i he agents of the government Are engaged in making preparations for the removal of the Ottaw Ottamie indians from Indiana to the country allotted to them West of the Mississippi River. Some of the bands have expressed great unwillingness to emigrate but the policy of the government the interests of the state and the welfare of the indians themselves All Combine to Render their removal necessary. In the country beyond Tho Quot father of Waters Quot the will find a permanent Home where they will be protected by the United states from the encroachment of the White population. Many of the tribes that have removed arc living prosperously and progressing in the arts of civilized life.

It is a secret known to but few yet Small use in the conduct of life thit when Yew Iau into a Man s conversation the first thing you should consider is whether he a greater Inck hear Yogi or that you a hold hear him Philadelphia May 13, 1837. My dear us you were Good enough to express a wish to know my own views of the present stale of things and i hasten to give them without Reserve. You May perhaps remember that in my letter to you of the Lith november last i stated what seemed the real causes of the embarrassments then existing and the appropriate remedies for them adding that by to Weir a Lipton Quot Confidence would be restored in Twenty four hours and repose at last in As Many Days six months further experience has it Only confirmed that opinion. I believe now As i i believed then that the events of this week might have been readily prevented and that the unhappy perseverance in tie measure then deprecated has reduced the country to its present condition. But i have no Leisure now to discuss the subject and no disposition to indulge in unavailing regrets. It will be More profitable to look distinctly at the present position of the Banks and the country and to suggest their respective duties to themselves Antl to each other. All the Deposit Banks of the government of the a filed states in the City of new York suspended specie payments this week the Deposit Banks elsewhere have followed their example which of course adopted by the state Banks not con Necleto with the government i say. Of course because in is Eilain when the government Banks Ccase to .<5pcfie, All the other Banks must cease and for this Clear reason the great creditor in the United slates is like in Overn ment. It receives for duties the notes of the various Banks which i Are placed for collection in certain government Banks and Are paid to those government Banks in specie if required. Now if these government Banks the depositories of the Public Revenue will not pay specie for the very warrants drawn upon them by the Treasury the government of the United slates from that moment ceases to pay specie to the citizens of the United states As moreover the government receives for duties Only specie and Llie notes of specie paying Banks the instant its own Deposit Banks Ccase to Pav specie the must refuse to rec ivc the notes of its own Deio site Banks and can receive no notes except those of Banks not Deposit Banks. On the one hand then the government is bound to pay its debts in specie and it has no Means of procuring specie except from the Banks not connected with the Treasury so that these Bank a find All their notes collected and paid into the Treasury for duties converted Imit Idia Tely into specie for the use of the government while the Deposit Banks will not pay their debts to other Banks in specie nor pay the Treasury warrants in specie. Take for instance this example. The claimant under the French indemnity had certain Money due to him in France. The government imported it in Gold for him and a Hon the Day of distribution arrived he obtained an order for his portion. But instead of receiving his own share of his own proper identical Gold he has received neither Gold nor Silver but the notes of the Deposit Banks which very notes the Gover Mienl itself would refuse to receive from this very claimant for any debt which he might owe to the govern sent. So Long therefore As the government and the government Banks will not pay specie to other Banks it would be rashness in those Banks to pay specie to them and As they cannot make a discrimination in those whom they will pay the Only alternative is to concur with the government Banks in the general suspension. Our Philadelphia Banks saw this. They thought it useless to carry on so Une tial an Intercourse in which they were to pay to new York while new York refused to pay to Pennsylvania for if the Pennsylvania Banks paid while those of new York did not the whole Revenue would have been turned into Pennsylvania notes and specie demanded. In the midst of these disorders tie Bank of the United states occur if a a Peculiar position and has special duties. H id it consulted merely its own strength it would have continued its payments without Reserve. But its. Like All the other Pennsylvania Banks it owed a duty to the citizens of our own stale and it was not Dii posed to stand aloof from a general movement of the other slate ins Lillions which however it might regret it could not Cen sure. 2d. In was not inclined moreover to discredit by a d to re Timve it the paper of the other state Banks which had ceased to pay specie still less to Force its Pennsylvania debtor to pay their debts in specie when other citizens in other states were allowed to pay in a less costly medium thus breaking Down for the Benefit of other states the merchants and manufacturers and mechanics of Pennsylvania. 3d. While the vaults of All the other Banks were closed the government of the United states would have no resource to procure Specic but the Bank of Tho unit Tel states which ought not to assume the risk of being the Only source of Supply for Bullion to Thi government and the land offices As Well As for exportation. 4th. The Deposit Banks of the government would not pay their debt to the Bank of the United states. Why then should the Bank of the United states pay to these institutions on account of the government specie for their notes when these very Banks would not pay their own debts there would have in an equal want of reciprocity and of justic a a such a proceedings 5th. There was another reason against it final and Dee naive. From the moment that the Deposit Banks of new York failed to comply with their engagements it was Niani ested the Otho a Deposit books must do the same that there must be a Universal suspension throughout the country and that the Treasury itself in the Midi of its nominal abundance must be practically bankrupt. ,. A in such a st the of things the first consider Tori is How to escape from it How to provide of earliest practicable moment to change a Zohdi Tinq which should not be tolerated beyond the Necer sity which commanded it. The old associations the extensive connections the established credit the Large capital of the Bank of the United Sta i Render it Tho natural rallying Point for the resumption of specie payments. It seemed Wiser there i fore not to waste its strength in a struggle who Elf might be doubtful while the executive persevered in its present policy but to husband All its resources so As to profit by the first favourable moment to take the Lead in the Early resumption of specie payments. Accordingly the Bank of the Ubaid slates assumes that position. From this moment its efforts will be to keep itself Strong acid to make itself stronger always prepared and Alraya anxious to assist in recalling the currency aft the exchanges of the country to the Point from which they have fallen. It will co operate cordially and zealously with the government with the government Banks with All the other Banks and with any other influences which can Aid in that object in the mean time two great duties devolve on the Banks ind the country. The first regards foreign nations the second our own. We owe a debt to foreigners by not Means Large for our resources but disproportion de to our present Means of payment. We Mist take Caie that this late measure shall not seem to he an Effort to avoid the payment of our honest debts to Triem.
