March 22 the Banks in Philadelphia. We have procured a copy of the answer sent by the Banks to the inquiries made of them under Llie authority of the town meeting. Composed As that meeting professed to be of what Are called the working people the answer seems designed to explain in a Clear Plain manner the True bearing of Banks in general upon the particular situation of such persons and especially to show How necessary for the Protection of their own particular interests was the suspension of specie payments. The leaders of these persons Are very Apt to delude them into a belief that Banks Are hostile to the working classes and they Are particularly interested in maintaining this political nonsense about an exclusively Metalic currency. We advise them to read and study the annexed letter where they will find their True interests demonstrated in a Short and simple but conclusive train of reasoning. We could wish this letter to be universally circulated among the Labouring classes in order to put them them on their guard against the arts of political leaders who Are using them for selfish purposes. Nat Royial Gaz. At a meeting of delegates from All the Banks of o o the City of Philadelphia and adjoining districts held at the Exchange the following reply to the communication of the committee of the Public meeting held on the 15lh inst., addressed to the said Banks was unanimously agreed to and ordered to be signed by the chairman and Secretary on Behall of the meeting to messes. F. Soever e. S. Penn Nan John will Ank Nathan Hall Thomas to g an Jim. Thompson Robert m. Lee. Gentlemen your letter of the 17th inst. Was yesterday received and submitted to a meeting of delegates Froni the Banks of the City and county of Philadelphia in whose name we Are authorized to answer your inquiries. This we shall proceed to do promptly and cheerfully. Between the Banks and the Community there ought always to be a Clear understanding. The Banks Are in fact., the representatives of the capital and indu by of the Community. If the business of the country was confined merely to what could be carried on with Gold and Silver that business would be in the hands of the very few who could command Gold and Silver and nine tenths of All those works which give employment to Industry would cease to exist. It is the Banks which Supply by credit the want of Gold and Silver. They enable men with More Industry and talents than Money to undertake valuable works to employ a great number of hands and give activity to the spirit of Enterprise. The factories the ship building the House building the Coal mines the canals the roads the whole Industry of the country Quot Are in a great degree supported or assisted by credits derived from Banks. The Banks then Are inseparable from the Industry of the country. If the country prospers the Banks Prosper. If the country suffers the Banks suffer and the Banks can never do any thing which injures the country which does not still More injure themselves. Accordingly in the late proceedings they have been guided by the same principle of common interest which will readily appear by the answer to your two inquiries. 1st. You express a wish to know the reasons of the adoption of the measure of suspending specie payments. The suspension of specie payments by the Banks of Philadelphia was occasioned by this that the Banks of new York stopped paying specie. The Banks of Philadelphia therefore thought if others would not pay specie to them and to the citizens of Philadelphia it would be very wrong to pay specie to others because this would be paying specie at the expense of the citizens of Philadelphia. The specie in the Banks of Philadelphia is the fund on which Loans Are made to the merchants manufacturers and mechanics of Philadelphia. When the specie diminishes the Loans Are diminished and if the Banks had gone on paying specie to the new York Banks they would have been obliged to cease lending to the merchants manufacturers and mechanics and the consequence would be that All the Labouring classes would soon have been without employment. If the Banks part with their specie they must Stop lending. The simple question then was whether it was better to suspend the factories suspend All Trade suspend All House building All canal making All Road making or to suspend specie payment. If the Banks had been so thoughtless As to go on till All the specie had been drawn from them How could they lend Money to pay the wages of the industrious classes who would have been thrown out of employ by thousands the suspension then was for the very purpose of enabling the Banks to lend to those who pay the wages of the industrious classes and we think that so far from being an object of censure it was the indispensable duty of the Banks not to part with their specie that is to say not to give up the Means of lending to those who could employ so Many industrious and worthy citizens. 2d. Your next enquiry is whether during the general suspension the Banks might not pay their five or ten Dollar notes. The Banks have considered this matter carefully and frequently. They would be glad to do it but they Are satisfied it would be injurious to the Labouring classes. The reasons Are these if it is right to suspend specie payments at All if it is necessary to protect the Industry of the City and county the measure must be carried out or it will be of no service. For look at the effect of it. Specie is now at a Premium. If five Dollar notes will bring specie then five Dollar notes Are at the same Premium As specie. They will then be bought up and Bro t to the Banks the specie drawn from them and sent away so that if All the five Dollar notes were paid in specie there would not be a Dollar of it in circulation. If when it was paid out you could keep it in circulation it would be Well but that is impossible while it is bought up immediately and carried off. Besides to pay five Dollar notes is just As bad As paying Hundred Dollar notes because the owner of a Hundred Dollar note has Only to come first and get it changed into fives and then he draws the whole Hundred in specie and sends it away. Again Why should you pay a five Dollar note and not a ten or a fifty would it be just to pay one Man and not pay All is it not then better to keep All the specie safely until the time comes when every body can be paid alike tie course of the Banks of Philadelphia has been justified completely by the conduct of All the other Banks in the United states As far As we have heard from them they All having suspended specie payments and All having avoided making any distinction Between Small notes and Large ones. The very few institutions that made an Effort under the most favourable circumstances to continue specie payments after the Experiment of a few Days or hours found themselves compelled to submit to overruling necessity. While All the Banks in the United states protect their neighbors by keeping their specie it would appear to be unsafe for the Ali Ladelphia Banks to expose the merchants manufacturers and mechanics of the City and county to the injury which they must suffer by any premature attempt to pay specie. In conclusion it May be proper to add that it has been suggested that the Banks might be induced to part with their present Stock of specie. To deem it a duty to apprise you that no such disposition exists and that the Banks looking steadily to a resumption of specie payments will carefully regard their present Supply and will not reduce it for the purpose of gain. We Havano Given candidly the motives of the proceedings of the Banks and shall be gratified if they appear reasonable to the respectable body of our fellow citizens whom you worthily represent on this occasion very respectfully yours Manuel Eyre chairman. John b. Trevor Secretary. Loss of the Ben Sherrod. The Natchez papers contain the particulars of the deplorable loss of the j3en Sherrod. At the time she took fire she was engaged in a race with the Steamer Prairie and the fire took from the great heat of the boilers caused by raising her steam to its extreme Power. A barrel of Iphis hey was placed on dec for the use of the hands during the race who drank to excess and became intoxicated. At about 12 o clock at night the Furnace became so heated that it communicated fire to the Wood of which there were on Board about sixty cords. When the Crew discovered the fire they All left their posts and ran for the Yale without giving any alarm to the passengers who were All asleep in their berths. The Captain for a time attempted to allay the extreme confusion by stating that the fire was extinguished twice he forbid the lowering of the yawl which was attempted by the deck hands and passengers. The shrieks of nearly three Hundred persons on Board now Rose wild and dreadful. The cry was to the Shore to the Shore and the boat made for the starboard Shore but did not gain it As the wheel rope might have Given Way or the Pilot been driven by the flames from station. The steam was not let of Quot and the boat kept on. The scene of horror now beg Gared All description. The yawl which had been filled with the Crew had sunk drowning some who were in it and the passengers had no other alternative than to jump , without taking even time to dress. There were ten ladies on Board who All went overboard without uttering a single scream 6omo drowning instantly and others cling in to planks two of the number were finally saved. Some of the passengers Are supposed to have Burnt up on Board the Ben Sherrod. One Man by the name of Ray from Louisville ky., Hung to a rope at the Bow of the boat until taken up by the yawl of the Steamboat Columbus which arrived about half an hour after the commencement of the disaster on her downward passage. Or. Ray s face and arms were much Burnt while clinging to the boat in the above position he lost $20,000 in Natchez and United states paper. The Steamboat Alton arrived half an hour after the Columbus but from the carelessness or indiscretion of those on Board was the Means of drowning Many persons who were floating in tie water. She drove into the midst of the exhausted sufferers who were too weak longer to make exertion and by the commotion occasioned by her wheels drowned a Large number. A gentleman by the name of Hamilton from Limestone county ala., was floating on a barrel and sustaining also a lady when the Alton drove up and washed them both under the lady was drowned but or. Hamilton came up and floated Down the River fifteen Miles when he was taken up by the Steamer statesman. Or. Mcdowell attributes the drowning of wife to the indiscretion of the managers of the Alton As she was floating safely on a Plank at that time. Or. Mcdowell sustained .self some time against the current so that he Only floated two Miles Down the River when he swam ashore ten Miles above port Adams. Or. Rundell floated Down the River ten Miles and was taken up by a Flat boat at the Mouth of Buffalo Creek. He saved Money in pantaloons pocket but lost one thousand dollars Worth of freight. Or. Mcdowell lost wife son a lady. Miss Francia few who was under Protection and a negro servant. Or. Mcdowell feels himself under great obligations to or. William stamp s family for their kind attentions to in distress soon after he reached the Shore. Or. Rundell acknowledges kind attentions from the same source. There were 235 persons on Board of which not More than 60 escaped leaving one he undred and seventy five drowned including the Captain s three children and father. His wife was picked up by a Flat boat badly Burnt. The following Are the names of some of the ladies lost mrs. Mcdowell of be front South Alabama mrs. Gamble and three children of new Orleans miss Francica few of be front South Ala Ama. Mrs. Smith of Mobile saved.

Hard states that he and the Man at the wheel discovered the Light of the Ben Sherrod on fire As soon As he entered the Mississippi from red River fifteen Miles below fort Adams. Capt hard met the Columbus and Alton floating Down with the current for the purpose of picking up the unfortunate sufferers. How Many hey saved he docs not know. The a fun sen Irod at the moment of the last explosion on Board sunk instantly about a mile and a half above fort Adams on the right hand. Ave copy the following editorial article from the Natchez courier of the 13th inst. There seems to be no room for doubting the fact of the horrible barbarity of the Captain of the Steamboat Alton upon the occasion of the burning of the Sherrod. If the statement Here made be Correct the hearts of most murderers in comparison with Are As White As Snow. We never before heard of so revolting an instance of Quot Man s inhumanity to Man Quot the steam boat Alton capt. while those individuals who were rescued from i a watery grave at the Truclio of the steam boat Ben. Sherrod speak with the warmest gratitude of the untiring a flirts made for their Rescue any preservation by the folic cars and Crew of the Columbus and statesman while they express the warmest feelings of and respect for the kindness and care lavished upon them by the citizens of fort Adams Uliey All unite in testifying that the conduct of the Alton was inhuman and cruel in the Exleine and such As would have disgraced even barbarians. Thuv testify that a lion the River was covered with those who were struggling for life and who implored pity and inter atm to be saved from a most horrible death that boat passed on Sci Way heedless of their cries. The following persons who called up i on us yesterday afternoon. Erastus Griggs Marietta Ohio Rosson p. Andrus Yates . N. Y. Asa s. Smith Natchez. Henry Kever Terre haute Indiana. They give us Many heart rending particulars. They All have no doubt that at least fifty persons were drowned by the swell in the River occasioned by the Alton and some of themselves were nearly drowned from the same cause. They also state that a gentleman passenger in the Ben. Quot Sherrod inform etl them that he was in the water and a lady clinging to Arm when the Alton pass Cal can without stopping., the Gen Aikman was afterwards saved but the lady was drowned owing to the Waves of the Alton. One gentleman who was picked up afterwards by the inhabitants of fort Adams having floated Down that length was in the water struggling when the Alton passed he called out and heard the passengers in the Alton demonstrating with the Captain to Stop but the boat did not Stop. The gentleman s name is or. Hamilton of Louisville. The capt. Of the Columbus who brought or. Hamilton up informs us that when or. Hamilton called out to the Alton he was asked by the capt. In answer what they a Ere clinging to and when he told n they wore clinging to a barrel the capt. Replied you Are doing very Well. Of from Twenty to Twenty eight Julies on Board Only two were saved tie Captain s wife and the lady of or. Smith. The latter gentleman saved one Little boy and lost one. All the other children were lost. Or. Hamilton said that at the time the Alton passed the cries of drowning persons were assailing it on All sides and might be distinctly heard for 2 Miles. The editor of the Indiana Democrat says in last paper Quot if the Public works Are not classified that the new Albany and Crawfordsville Road will never be to says further that under the present system tie question will not be determined before 1838, whether this Road will be a rail Road or a Mcadam Zed Turnpike and that it will not be put under contract before 18 9. Now we should be much gratified to learn from the editor of the Democrat from what source he has derived information. We have been told differently by the commissioner on this line. Has our commissioner been duped by the Board of Public works or has he been duping us or has the editor of the Democrat been duped or has he been trying to dupe readers we shall presume for the present the latter is the fact. The corps of engineers engaged in the Survey of the new Albany and crawl Rosville Road Are now in Salem preparing a report As we learn for the Board of Public works. We know not what will by the character of that report but the editor of the Democrat May rest assured of one fact that the representation generally on the line of the new Albany and Crawfordsville Road will go in for nullification before classification. If the Faith of the state once pledged is to be violated by classification we will not give our Aid in favor of the suicidal measure. We have not yet seen the Validity of a single argument offered by the editor of tie Democrat in Ivor of class Ifica lion. Besides bettors in the cause of classification Are very generally All those who have been radically opposed to the whole system of internal improvement and who Are Only anxious to destroy the present system in order that they May adopt another including their own favorite works. We can further assure tie Democrat editor that cause will gain no accession of strength by alarming the delegation on the new Albany and Crawfordsville line. They number eight senators and fifteen representatives who will All become nullifies the moment they discover that the works Are to be classified. This number if we mistake not taken from the support of the present system and added to the nullifies will give them the Ascendancy. So that if the editor of the Democrat wishes to secure any advantages of the present Syatt he should take Good care not to alarm the Deil Ilion on this line As the want of their Sii port prove fatal to own favorite works. Indiana Boston meeting. The proceedings of the great meeting in Boston for the consideration of the propriety of the late custom House and Post office circulars have Ever where attracted extraordinary attention. Those proceedings Shew that the spirit of Boston the birth place of american Freedom is almost Ripe for a forcible opposition of the despotic acts of govern edit. Let those who have the ear of the tyrants at Washington warn them to pause in their career. The voice thai comes from old Massachusetts is no Quot mock that stale never indulges like some others in loud and empty f Rava to. She is As prompt to act As to speak As Swift to execute As to her great soul is not easily aroused she can Bear and Bear uncomplaining by whatever american freemen should Bear but when once her spirit is up it is the Stern and mighty spirit of a giant that can neither be intimidated nor conquered. We have been repeatedly requested to publish a full account of what transpired at the Boston meeting. We have not room for such an account to Day. The speeches of Geo. Bond Esq. And the Hon. A Hotl Lawrence in All probability prevented the citizens from adopting the resolutions Laid before them of forcible resistance to the execution of the edicts of the the of these gentlemen Are not reported but the Atlas thus describes tic general Tenor of the remarks of a or. Bond. George Hgt no Esq. Addressed the chair. It was with extreme reluctance he said that he presented self to Tho meeting but he Felt imperatively called upon to i beseech fellow citizens to pause before the adoption of the resolutions. They created a breach at once Between the people and the government. They were giving the first impulse to a movement that would terminate god alone could Tell How he reproached As much As any Man the odious measures of a corrupt profligate and abandoned government. The time might not be far Distant when we should be called upon by a necessity that i ill know no Law to adopt the resolutions As reported. Meanwhile the government stand in the wrong. The people stand in the let us Naini Iii this advantage. Let us do nothing to Lurry on the impending crisis. Let us Bear and forbear As Long As human nature can Bear and forbear. Let i s do nothing rashly nothing noticing untre fleetingly. Let us defer further action on this subject till we can hear once More from wus Lington. Let the resolutions lie upon the Tuble to be considered at an adjourned meeting. Then it will be time enough to come to a definite action. The remarks of the Hon. Abbott Lawrence who for Stern integrity great abilities and unquestionable patriotism is admired beloved and almost revered by fellow citizens Are thus spoken of by the Atlas. Or. Lawrence offered no apology for appearing before the Assembly. The Day was one of sorrow and sadness not of men with Tho Quot feelings of men could not repress their indignation. He could not hesitate to speak Yentim cols of the Adarin Starlion. I Here is no people on the face of god s Earth that is so abused cheated plundered and trampled by their rulers As Are the people of the United states. This was sincere and deliberate conviction. He would not say that he did not approve All the sentiments of the resolutions. But the time had not yet come for their adoption. It might come it might come the next week and citizens might then come together prepared to adj the resolutions that had been read and adopt the measures necessary to sustain Thern. When that fearful crisis should arrived when the Issue should eventually be made up Between an oppressed Pei la and an oppressing government he Sli Ould not be at a loss for the course that it would be proper for to pursue. Meanwhile let us proceed with great caution prudence and Foresi Glit. The a government Are in the wrong. This exact Vin possibilities and let us keep them in the wrong and commit ourselves by no overt u to till e find that the Laws of self preservation compel us to a forcible resistance. Ave Are afloat on a tempestuous Ocean with no rudder no Compass no Pilot and the time May come when Trio Crew Ivill be compelled to take Possession of the ship. The remarks of the a thus itself Are too powerful and too strongly indicative of the fierce temper of the great Metropolis of Massachusetts not to attract attention. Speaking of the tyrannical and oppressive requisitions of the government that paper has tie foil Wing. The news came like a i Hunker Stroko on the Community. Men did not believe that the government word dare thus to insult and trample on a people whom they have stripped and plundered. It was the last drop in the cup of bitterness that has filled it to overflowing. Prostrate crushed ground to the dust Ridden rough silo do As the people have Beeti Lor the last five years by a Cabal of ignorant adventurers and profligate Espara does a accustomed to oppression habituated to arbitrary violence�?in-5uhetl�?slandered�?menaced a defied beg Gared by a corrupt and arbitrary govenis Mentz they a null not believe that the insolence of authority and the arrogance of Power would venture upon so monstrous and iniquitous a measure. Here is a bankrupt government not stable by its creditors paying its demands in the bet ter currency Wlinich executive legislation has furnished us and refusing at the same moment to receive in Usu its debtors the same currency in the liquidation of their duties the merchant receives instalment of the neapolitan and French indemnity in paper and is called upon to pay government Bonds in Gold. His debenture Bonds Are paid in paper and the government will not receive even those debenture Bonds in offset to their claims secure in its own sovereignty Superior to All process of Law a and its ministers removed by distance though distance alone from the outbreak of popular indignation the government displays itself at the same time in the obvious lights of a dishonest debtor and an oppressive creditor. J he government it has been solemnly adjudicated has no prerogative to claim one Law upon its own contracts As a debtor and Ano to As creditor. There is no reason of Law or ans which will sustain the government in exacting currency which it docs Liot pay. An ind Vidy a could not play this game. If he undertook to exact specie he would be compelled to May in specie. But the government does not pay species it cannot be compelled to pay specie a and yet in in own contracts a even to the a a Polind of flesh nearest the merchant s heart a it clamors for the Quot penalty upon the Bond Quot under these circumstances it is Idle to suppose that the people will submit any longer to the accursed bondage under which they have been groaning. The merchants cannot and will not under the existing state of things pay their Bonds in specie. It is practically impossible. Solvent men might sink their whole property and they could not pay their debts to the government in species even if the government paid their own debts in the currency which they demand from their debtor. And to what end does the government thus vex and harrass the people this is Only another process for the prostration i of the merchants. It is More odious to our Ciu Zens than the Boston port Bill was to their fathers because they have been guilty of no outrage upon their present King that justifies the resort to any ruinous and disastrous retaliation ii they have thrown no Tea overboard mobbed tid stamp burned in effigy no odious ministers opel the resignation of Leo detested government officers who feed upon Thoni and consume their substance a they have done nothing of All this and Are not therefore legitimate objects of government oppression and persecution. But the government is determined to have your neck under its foot to put its shackles upon you apply its screws to Humble and harrass you by government suits attachments processes a and All for the prosecution of an Experiment which has made you All Bank upts and which if no4 resisted with the spirit of men and patriots will make you All Sla ves or. Van Buren must pause in career. He cannot carry on tie same High handed game with predecessor. It will not answer for to denounce tie opposition As clamorous disaffected it is True clamorous it is True because they Are oppressed by grievances and wrongs to Quot which no free people will submit. The time will come a nay the time is at hand when the doctrines of the revolutionary american the America of Henry and Hancock and Adams and will be the prevailing doctrines of the land when Faneuil Hall and the House of burgesses will again Thunder their decrees and their and when an arbitrary corrupt and oppressive government will be compelled to yield to the just demands of the people or to submit their destinies to the ultimate arbitrage it of for e. I is not Idle declamation. It is the prevailing sentiment the Universal opinion the fixed determination the unalterable resolve of citizens of bosto.\. They will be sustained in it by the people throughout the country. Insulted ridiculed menaced defied they May be they May have been by an odious and accursed government but trampled spurned wronged cheated plundered they Wili not be. They have been rendered bankrupt by the profligate policy of the government and have submitted in is Ince. Wrong on wrong injury on injury insult on insult have been heaped upon them and they have submitted in silence. Their com Morco has been paralysed their manufactures have been destroyed their credit has been ruined and they have submitted in silence. And now in Defiance and in scorn of All their sufferings they Are called upon to perform an impossibility. The period has arrived for resist Ancko and As surely As there is a Sun in m heaven resistance a forcible resistance will follow if the government undertake the enforcement of their abominable edicts. An act relative to unclaimed truths and baggage was passed by the legislature of the state of new York. It provides that the proprietors of stages boats Railroad companies taverns amp a. Shall enter the same m a Book and notify the owner by mail if they can find out who and where he is and then after thirty Days to advertise a description in the state paper. Sixty Days alter this the baggage is to be opened before a magistrate when the magistrate must notify the owner if he can find out who he is and if not sell it at Public auction the proceeds after deducting the expenses to be Given to overseers of the poor. Senate of Mississippi have passed a Law authorizing the Banks of that state to Issue posts notes for sums not less than Twenty dollars payable in it t less than six months nor More than thirteen months. The act proposed to make these notes receivable by the Bank issuing the same in payment of any individual debt due said Bank. The act also provides that damages Only of five per centum shall hereafter be chargeable on Domestic Bills of Exchange which i May be protested Quot for non payment. The Post notes Are to Bear interest on their face at live per cent and May be loaned out at an interest not greater than nine per cent.
