But that aint my Way the same time and Iviz d away jest As we did i la Tell More about Liis Here artery and in my next too i la try and explain what i consider another mistake and a pretty important one too and that is about Pri Vule Bank being considered belter than corporate Bank so it is a Long store to show that Bank Bills is a Small part of Bailkin business and that the most dangerous part is of a very different a lure and that All our Banks could git along easy enuf if it was ony their Bank Bills they had to pay in species and All this i will try to show and then see How it comes a bout that Banks suspend Payin specie and be May be As sound As Ever and we shall then see that it is ony 07ie thing More than any other things brought about this state of things it was Quot Over action Quot of private Bankers corporate Bank Bills now in the worst of times May not be Worth As much As Gold and Silver but the hardest currency i guess thai folks holds now a Days is the currency of private Bankers at Home and abroad.

A Young Jonathan once courted the daughter of an old Man that lived Down East who professed to be deficient in hearing Siut Forsooth who was More cautious than limited in hearing As the sequel will tend to show.

Nature for him has no smiles and its Bounty has no Bliss. But want and pains and Griefs and tears Are All relieved and soothing and cheered and wiped away by the tenderness of sympathy by the communion of love and the offices of responsive affection.

Like the emotion of Beauty in order to its existence objects must exert upon the mind the appropriate Power and this emotion thus awakened must Transfer its feeling anti with them both in beauteous array the objects which inspired them.

It is the reciprocity which augments ardor cherishes con Fidepe Stryd Athens the Bonds of affection Andren Deis the Joys of Many Joys of each and the common Joys of All.

If the major Calls this ony Takin the hark off of Xci we Don t know what will be left of the Limber by the Lime he has got the Square on t a but we will not by any remarks of our own de lain our readers from a production the perfect Good temper of which is Only equalled by its True and unalloyed patriotism.

I dont think if Quot Uncle Sam Quot Cut Sich shines As he has of Quot late that he will find a Bank or Quot a natural per son Quot or.

S. Bank. The greatest mistake Quot Uncle Sarn Quot Ever made is when he talks of separation himself from any class or portion of the people for if it warn t for the people Quot of All classes on whose earnings he lives he would not have a shoe to his foot or a shirt to his backs who on Airth is Quot Uncle Sam Quot on his own Hook unless he Means to put on a Rock d hat like Bonapart or some Sich kind of folks and say he is Quot the government Quot and his word is Law and so Forth and that he will keep his own Money and tint Trust the people with it or loan it to emas other folks do for general Prosperity?i guess if the Johi a or the old federalists put Quot Uncle Sam Quot in office and said he was one of their party and a talk d so the democrats would soon grease his fiddle i things or he could it Plaj a Varse of Yankee Doodle or which the president has no control and to ont treasurer who instead of having the Money in his actual Possession cannot possibly get a Dollar of it into his own hands Fogt any other purposes than to pay his own salary and Ordinary office expenses. It is fortunate for general Jackson that he does not entertain or. Leigh s opinions. If he had such a system what peals of patriotic indignation would have Buist from Elo Tient senators against usurper and tyrant who desired to get the millions o the i reas Xury into the very hands of his partisans and parasites Quot recurring again to the subject november 20, the Globe asks Quot vend does or. Leigh conceive that the Power of the executive Over the Public Money would be d or finished if in lieu of one treasurer As at present appointed by the president with the concurrence of the Senate who cannot himself touch a Dollar of the Public Money while in his log i. Custody n principal treasurer and Asma at an election? i i. Is sound doctrine Quot Uncle Distant treasurers As might be found convenient were substituted appointed by the president alone or the head of the Treasury department who should hold All the millions of the me a actual p Possession says or. Sam Quot and if you Don t find it so in practice then i an t your Friend. J. Downing major Downingville militia 2d brigade. From the Cincinnati Gazette. How soon forgot. It is very singular How soon men forget what they once earnestly maintained when new interests Are brought up for them to support. At this moment the whole country is startled at president Van Buren s project of a sub Treasury for keeping and disbursing the Public Revenue. It is forgotten where and by whom this scheme was first suggested. In september 1834, or. Leigh was called upon by some of his friends in Virginia to explain his views respecting the Bank of the United states As expressed in a speech in tie Senate in reply to or. Webster. Or. Leigh complied and addressed a letter to his corresponding friends dated Richmond september 22, 1834, which is republished in the Globe of october 4. We give the subjoined extract Quot in my opinion the Frame a of the Constitution had no thought of any Bank Agency whatever slate or Federal either for Fach italien the operations of the Treasury or for regulating the currency and that to administer the government in the True spirit of the Constitution and according to the intention of its founders the Treasury ought to be divorced front All connexion with Banks slate or Federal. At the same time i have no expectation that this principle will be acted on to its full extent. The friends of the state Banks the friends of a National Bank and the supporters of the executive claims to Power will All Combine against it and the nation most Leigh the obvious effect of the scheme would be to take the Public treasure out of the custody of the president on the contrary it is As palpable As the Sun that the effect of the scheme would be to bring the Public treasure much nearer the actual custody and control of the president than it now is and expose it to be plundered by a Hundred hands where one cannot now reach and now the Globe sustains the sub Treasury scheme and its origin is traced to or. Senator Wright. When or. Leigh made the suggestions Here noticed and the Globe thus summarily and unanswerable exposed the whole project no party r Garden it As calling Lor any attention. All looked upon it As a rather feeble shift on the part of or. Leigh to get rid of an accusation against him of being favourable to the Bank of the United slates. Who then dreamed of its becoming the favorite scheme of those who most loudly denounced in yet Here we have or. Van Byren following or. Freigh almost to the letter. Who does not see that he is brought to it by the same cause the imaginary scylla and Charybdis of state Banks and a Bank of the United states.? from the if the Kentuck wealth. By i probably will never agree that the immense sums yearly paid in for Revenue shall Between Sac in Row Llue time of collection Antl the time of Dis is a considerable of a Man so Long As he re Mem Nursement be wholly unemployed and in product Bers that he is one of the Hull people and not of Tive Quot Quot a parly Only and though he May Cut a Shine for a spell with what he Calls his parly the nature As a Carpenter and draw d Chalk lines to git the Square on and sharpened my a and began to Chip off. It is More than a Day s Job and 1 Don t know that 1 can Promise in this letter to do More Tan git the bark off. It is a play Long message seen that in Speaks of ony one matter but this comes from our great folks in office usin Sich Long words and so ringing on pm together like i gins when a few Short ones would Tell the same Story. I remember one Day when i was to hum Uncle Joshua got a letter from Washington from a Fri Eft of Oisin who had gone there to ask the Gimre a to make Uncle Joshua postmaster. He told a Long Story about the delay and that the general was sick and that the doctor said that he was now con Wallesen a Goya what asked Tot a Abby. Why con Wallesen said Uncle Joshua Rubbin his spectacles. What in nature is that complaint now Aske d aunt Nabby a in i ton i know says Uncle Joshua but All 1 Hope is it Ain t the name of a new party is one or Tother i am afraid and if it is a latter we must a Brush around and turn con Iii wept As soon As possible or i Shant get my this letter is first noticed in the Globe of september 30. From the editorial comments upon of Quot the great family of the people Quot is such that ii the following paragraph is selected As soon As they feel that he treads on any of their j of a Yir. Leigh has reference to the friends of toes they will grumble and especially them folks i president Jackson when he Speaks of the sup that pay the taxes they Don t see Why they who pm in is of the executive claims to Power he May Are fall d on because they have Mani d property i a assured they will to a Man be United against to pay the taxes should also lie held up As ene�./j monstrous accumulation of Power Over Mies of them folks As Saint got any properly 7/ea�? Public Money Winch such a plan would if this is the doctrine then the Best Way is throw into Tlle hands of the exec Man to work. A Rich Man now Adays is talk utile. And we venture i allege that had on by some folks pretty Vuch As the Quaker it lidsuf., suggestion come from Gen. Jackson it of his dog now what on Airth can a Rich Man do would have been rung through la old Dominion with his Money in this country does he pile it up in Gold and Silver in his cellar not he if he has got any Mother wit in him he knows he did it make his Money that Way no no he keeps it Movin he Loans it out to them that have Good characters and Are industrious he builds houses takes a share in rail roads and canals and Hanks and you wont catch him doing any thing that will Check Prosperity if he can help it for lie prospers by general Prosperity he Don t very often want office and if he did he could it buy one nor title nother. The message is partly full of the causes that brought us into our present troubles and is ony True on that pint As far As it goes but it Don t Tell the Hull Toty. If i had Tell d that Story of Zekel Bigelo a s watch Quot whizzing Quot so and beginning jest Arter it begun to Quot Wiz Quot foil s would no know to this Day what made it Wiz so but i begun at the beginning on t and Tell d How Zekel twit Cli d out the balance wheel or Klicker Quot and then the old watch that had been Goin As True As the tides for Twenty years went Quot Wiz sure enuf and soon went to smash a and jest so it was in England they twitch d out their jest about with the reiterated falsehoods about the proclamation the protest As conclusive in oof of All the As Ira Lions which have been charged to the hero of Orleans see they would say How he wishes to put the Public Money directly into the. A films of his friends and partisans instead of keeping it on Deposit in Banks whence it cannot be drawn for any other than Public purposes without certain Deal Duclion in such a Case we should feel that the people had just cause for alarm and ought too Ive their most watchful att fion to such an extort to enlarge exec i Ink Power and up t in its hands the Means of or. Leigh further developed his plan in a dinner speech at Petersburgh october 15, 1834 Quot let a general Treasury office be established at the seat of government under the management of a treasurer and local Treasury of cos established in each of the states As Many As should be convenient under the management of assistant treasurers requiring Bond and Security from the treasurer and assistant Trca Sui ers for the Faith Louisville sept. 1, 1837.

Meeting opened with prayer by Rev. J. B. Cook.
