The Nati , april 6, 1841. Coi Quot qty . The following individuals have been appointed delegates from Centro township to the county convention to be yield in Indianapolis on tic last saturday in april to nominate a whig ticket for the county John Sutherland George Bruce George Talle John Brown Aaron Johnson a. R. Phipps Cornelius , George drum John j. M Farland Joseph Duval Garnald b. Williams Robert Greer Laban Harding Isaac Harris Lames i Liam James m la Vail Samuel Houston we. M Clintock John b. Phipps Matthew Little r. A. Taylor John w. Foudray John s. Babbs we. Tia Nainan Daniel Yandes Thomas Donallene j. Peck h. Griffith Isaac h. Roll we. Dorcly we. Vanblaricum Noah District nomination. In the journal of last week we stated that the nomination of , As tie whig candidate for Congress was entirely by that gentleman. The last Democrat in noticing this remark makes a Laboured and silly a Fiort to produce the impression that the nomination was Antici ated by gov. Wallace that it was effected in compliance with commands Quot sent on Quot Here that the object was to Subserve some designs of Noah Noble and that the impression generally prevailed Here previous to the meeting of the convention the several gentlemen spoken of As candidates Quot were to be As the object of the Democrat is easily discernible it seems almost unnecessary to say that its statements Are palpably false. Whatever May have been known by the publishers of that paper Quot on the morning before the delegates left Indianapolis Quot As to the result of the deliberations of the Danville convention we Are assured that the delegates from this town Alt Tough tue a Voirin personal and political friends of gov. Wallace left Here with the intention of urging the claims and pretensions of another individual not conceiving that Theof were authorized to make use of the name of gov. Wallace. To Liis determination they adhered until they found that it was useless to resist tie current from other portions of the District in favor of the present nominee. For proof if necessary of the truth of this statement we might refer to capt. Edward Hall messes. James Mulvain James Griswold Noah Wright and other delegates from the country townships i Lone of whom will be suspected of Affinity to the unto Quot which dwells in the imaginations of the Democrat editors. What the Democrat editors May have written on the Day previous to tiie convention or whether they and written any thing or not is of no consequence. It is so Seldom that their predictions Are Correct or their statements True that but Little importance is attached Here to any thing which emanates from to Weir pens. The whole of their article to Wlinich we have referred is but a repetition of the sentiments uttered last week by a certain Loco Foco whose anxiety to be a candidate for Congress was Quot knocked in the head Quot most emphatically by the unexpected nomination of gov. Wallace. The Congro a it a uti c Ai Ivanas in Ladinna. It seems probable that no convention will be necessary in either of the districts lately represented by Hon. George h. Proffit and Hon. Henry s. Lane. The late constituents of each of those gentlemen seem to unite heartily in the desire to return them to seats in Congress. In All the other districts in which nominations have been made we Are gratified to observe a most auspicious Harmony prevailing except in the fourth where slight dissensions exist which our friends there will discover it an advantage to heal before the election in May. Let there be Unity and the friends of Harrison and Reform will undoubtedly succeed in sending an entire whig delegation to Congress from Indiana. We Are greatly mistaken in t in political sagacity of some of our dissatisfied friends in the old fourth if they do not Endeavor to reconcile the difficulties which apparently exist and Tylius maintain the Strong hold which they regained in August and november last. Their pens instead of being directed against one another should All be aimed at the common enemy. If any have been disappointed get them adopt the motto nil f the last Democrat Vapours largely on the subject of Quot unto Dic Lalion Quot in the very same article its editors instruct the faithful not to vote for gov. Wallace. What jewels of consistency Are the Beautiful pair of the Democrat found guilty. Peter Robinson charged with the murder of an i i. Suydam has had Iii trial at new Brunswick new Jersey in the court of Oyer and ter Miner of Middlesex county the verdict of the jury was Quot guilty of murder in the first the trial of this individual it is said excited great interest during its whole Progress. Ohio legislature. The legislature of Ohio adjourned on the 29ih ult. The Cincinnati Gazette makes the following Brief but pointed remark with regard to the proceedings of that body in reference to measures of Relief Quot let it be remembered that a Furty Senate opposed to the will of a Large majority of the people of Ohio have Defeated every measure either originating in the whig ged from forty to sixty cents per Pound. Taking the Low average of forty five cents the last clip of Wool would be Worth More than to Canty Uii Lions of dollars. _ Quot to is ssh and Eric canal in Olio tiie following extract from a letter received by j.

Jackson Cut or noxious weeds we admit but he did it by destroying Trio crop and yet to made no preparation for a future Harvest. Let us not have a National Bank against which the cry of Mon i poly can be raised when its charter expires. Let it be Reau it i National and open now and always fur the use of the i humblest Lubrer who wishes to place his Small savings where they will yield him a secure but moderate profit. If to make it the interest of the people to disorder the currency we May be sure that they will do we must take care that the managers shall have no l a Ronal interests in the profits no temptations to make High dividends to raise the Price of Stock. We must pay the managers . Heretofore it has been done indirectly by granting Loans to them. We must make it Worth a Man s while to give his whole attention during his life to the business of the Bank which is that of the Public. Let us not Grant exclusive privileges or Privit fes of any kind for Twenty or ten years. If the plan work Well it will be perpetual if nut. Let us leave it always us a acct to the action of in o congresses so that on the one hand our stops May easily be rent iced if wrong and so that on the other a sudden change May not i considerately been tested. This object May be effect cd by granting the charter Fiir one year and until tvs of years notice be Given of its withdrawal. From the cover of the Slu Seum for february 1840. The utter derangement of the currency turns every Man s attention to it and to beg leave to Lay be fire the readers of the museum a plan a hich May be Good or bad but which has been will matured so far As Ime could do it and towards which we have perceived that the Public mind has been gradually tending so far at least As to have nearly arrived at these conclusions 1. The subject of the currency is National and does not properly belong to the Stales. 2. Tji Cre must be a paper currency but the profit ought to belong to the Public at Large. 3. There is not at present any Safe and permanent Means for investment of Money in the hands of widow executor or trustees of any kind. 4. The Public land question must be settled forever and no longer left open for electioneering purposes. These opinions Are not the result of party feeling for the writer. Alt Tough opposed in principle to All private Banks of Issue has always deprecated any violent action or sudden change. He believes that by the following plan the existing banking capital would All be gradually absorbed without any Shock to the Community. The Bank of the general Union. This Bank to have two principal Routs in Philadelphia and new York and As Many but Anches As Liall be found expedient. Its capital to be composed 1st. Of As Many shares of ten dollars each As shall be subscribed and paid in Gold and Silver Loit Hout limitation As to time or amount. 2d. Of All the proceeds of sales of Public lands deducting the proportion allowed by Lav to the new states. 3d. Of an additional subscription by the United states equal in a moist to both the foregoing and in manner As follows at the expiration of a year or some other time fixed by Law the amount paid in including the proceeds of the Public lands shall be ascertained by the president who shall then subscribe a like amount on behalf of the United states and shall pay for it by drafts on the Bank in sums from five dollars upward. These drafts to be accepted by the Bank under the signature of an officer appointed for the purpose and tie United states to be charged with interest at the rate of three per cent per annul for the amount of drafts in Bank from Day to Day. These drafts to constitute the Thole circulation of the Bank to be payable half in Philadelphia and half in new York and to be receivable to the exclusion of All other paper Money in payments to the United states. Let us suppose that the private subscriptions will amount to five millions and the sales of the Public lands to five n Illions at the end of the first year in All ten millions. The additional subscription of the United slates would then be ten millions More so that the Bank will go into operation with ten millions of Coin and ten millions of paper Money and three quarters of the capital belong to the United Stales. At the expiration of the second year we will suppose the private subscriptions to be one Rill him More and tie proceeds of the Public lauds four millions More. 1 lie United states would then subscribe five millions More payable As before in drafts. The Stock of the United states will now to Twenty four millions and the whole capital will be thirty millions. The dividend accruing to the private stockholders will to five or six por cent per annul and that to tie United states will be the same less Trio interest of three per cent on the Idle part of the paper Money which will be deducted. The dividends of the United states to belong to the states in proportion to their number of me tubers in the House of representatives and to be drawn for half on Philadelphia and half on tic York. It will be perceived that the objects proposed to be accomplished by this plan Are 1. To Settle the currency question by a gradual process. 2. To provide a Safe and profitable investment for Small saving is As Well As Large capitals. 3. To Settle the Public land question. On the cover of the it february number of the museum we endeavoured to present tiie outline of a plan for the settlement of the currency question on a Broad and solid foundation. In this plan every citizen May when he pleases have a sip Cial As Well As a general interest. The several states May derive from it a Revenue far greater than they have gained try the miserable device of demanding a Bonus for acts of incorporation. The Public will gain the whole profit of the paper currency which currency will be supported by the credit of the nation at Large and will not be liable to the fluctuations which have so often destroyed the Laid projects of basins so for there will be no Power of expanding it beyond a fixed limit and no inducement even within this limit to venture beyond the Bounds of prudence and safety. Referring our readers to the former article we proceed to con Quot Sider the matter a Little More in detail. Amount of capital. 1. Proceeds of Public lands. This part cannot be estimated at a less amount than six millions a year. 2. Private subscriptions in Small sums to a Stock certain to yield five or six per cent and a vans Safe and of ready Sale would probably amount to As much As the former source say six millions a year. Consider How great a proportion of the existing banking capital would thus be employed As the Banks wind up their affairs and by the Way is affix ring a Means of gradually winding up without withdrawing Money from the Market this is an important use of the scheme. If these anticipations appear reasonable let us to Quot it a at the result in Twenty Vears the Public lands to produce it �0,000,000 a year ,�120,000,000 in Twenty Vears private subscriptions the same , 120,000,000 and then tie paper currency the government drafts would be according to the scheme 240,000,000 Siy in All .1ii4?0,000,000 As there would he Large deposits tie dividends would probably be six per cent at that rate lie Public Stock say 300 millions would produce �21,600,-000 Gross from which deduct 3 per cent on the drafts which should remain in Bank say to amount of eighty millions this would to �2,400,000, leaving a Nett Anuial income of nearly Twenty millions of dollars to be divided among the states of u Linch the share of Pennsylvania would be say two millions a year. And it must be noticed that nearly two thirds of this amount of 20 millions would be the Clear profit upon the paper currency soy twelve millions a year. This Prnjat on the Ajmer alone would pay the in or est on state stocks to the amount of two Hundred and fifty millions of dollars and such an arrangement being made to secure the regular payment of interest without taxation it is probable that state �5 per cent stocks would be above Par in Europe. Is it not Likely Thot even a 4 per cent Stock would command Par another View of this Case is that the Bank would lend to the states themselves As Large a part of its capital As they would choose to borrow at six per Petit. The state stocks received in payment could always be resold by the Bank if desirable in Europe a As they would carry the double Security of the slates a and of the Bank and the Bank itself would be considered by Tho Revenue and credit of the general government. New slates would thus be put upon a certain foundation of credit and could make any Necess Ary improvements. As the internal troubles and the outward dangers of european governments increase a Large amount of capital will be continually drawn to this country As soon As a Singph and permanent Means of investment shall be provided. Of the extent to which this will take place and of the effect upon our manufactures and Trade it is pro Babu that the most sanguine anticipations will fall below the truth. Management perhaps the following scheme would give As Little executive patronage and secure As Groat stability and honesty As any other. A general currency Board of six or More persons appointed by the president of the United slates with the consent of the Senate of have the control of the Rren eral affairs but not of the Loans to . That is to say this Board to determine when and to what extent the general amount of Loans shall be increased or diminished and the proportion of specie that shall be retained amp a. Amp a. Besides this Board let there be another composed of one person appointed by each state say by the g Vernor Wilh consent of the Senate of the state which Only shall have the authority to make Loans. The members of b eth boards to act under oath to to appointed during Good behaviour to receive adequate salaries and give Bonds for faithful performance of duties. Holding their office by a similar tenure to that of the judiciary in which the nation has full Confidence we do not see Why a faithful execution of duty May not be relied on. Correspondence of the National intelligencer. New Yoke March 22. The Only effect the foreign news has had Here is a Good effect. None of the Bills sent out were protested and none Are returned an event which was dreaded by Many who made their drafts upon the strength and responsibility of the credit of the United slates Bank. M cod it is now certain will not be tried at tiie present term of the court. If he had wished an immediate trial which Rumor says to Doos not for reasons stated he could hardly have had it for the reason that the clerk in Niagara county made an error in drawing his jury. This is much to be regretted. There Are those Here and in the Northern part of the state who have interpreted and As they say by authority the despatch sent to the British minister to be the demand for passports in Case of the conviction and execution of m Leody an event not very Likely to happen. Despatches from England As you probably know Ere this have gone to Washington by a bearer of despatches from the american minister at London. The friends of or. Van Buren have changed their policy in regard to the reception of the sex president. He will be received in toe most formal manner with an address to which he is expected to reply and by his friends in procession. The crowd Are to meet in the Park at noon including All of the civic associations and societies of his friends and March to the Battery. There Ufier the Welcome the procession is to to re donned and March through a part of the to the Park. This event is intend cd to have something to do Wilh or. Van Buren s future profi Els. The letter of or. Van Buren in reference to the Missouri nomination so far from being regarded As a refusal to receive the nomination is spoken of by some of his friends As a reason for urging it. The sachets meet at tammany Hall to in glut to make the rite Tion More glowing and the Wise men of the parly in the common coi Vicil will lend their services to the Page i it. Stocks have ii proved a Little to Day thou it Zoh the amount of business was trifling. The United states Bank Cash sales were firm at 18�?bad enough but nevertheless an improvement. . Curtis is in Torii and begins his duties As cull actor of the port forthwith. The other officers for the bit have generally entered upon the discharge of their duties. They give for the most part great satisfaction. Tie oath of office was administered to Day to the collector Surveyor and naval officer. A Good Breeze to Day from the Southwest has brought a Fleet of vessels upon us foreign and Coastwise. Governor Kent has been nominated for re election by Tho whigs of Maine an exc Ellent nomination. General Scott remains at Albany confined by the injury he received on the ice. Bar. Crittenden will hardly go to Lockport since the chief Justice has decided not to attempt to hold a trial in Cosci Juwence of the clerical error. Many Are the compliments i have heard to Day to the new administration in consequence of the bold stand Takeo by the president to rid the country of the disgrace which has rested upon it by bringing the patronage of the general government into conflict with the Freedom of elections. The people and officers of government both May now breathe aloud the one having nothing to fear from the undue influence of the executive in the elections and the other in receiving office from the government not swearing that allegiance to the administration which makes Independence of opinion and Freedom of action a criminal offence. Office is no longer to be prostituted to party and the office Holder is free from those percentages upon his salary which have been subordinates to the supporters of those holding More exalted thanks to the administration for this timely interference a which is As honorable to the president As it is creditable to the country or. Van Buren returns to the City in a tempest not of excitement but of wind and rain. The gales of popular favor have blown away and instead of them comes the angry sky and howling wind which amused the Gilt be so much on the first Day of the new year and for some rime after. The falling of rain i suppose however though it came in torrents and upon the Day of or. Van Buren s arrival in new York is not much of an Omen for evil or Fiir Fifoot. It. Means just As much in new York on the 23d of March As it did in Washington on the 1st of january. The reception of the sex president would no doubt have been a grand affair so far As a great show could have made it so but for the rain. The Park in the Vicinity of tammany Hall and the City Hall was pretty Well filled during the intervals Between the showers. The several party associations and clubs were out with music and banners and in addition to these the curious among a population of 300,000, were in attendance. Every thing bad been done in the Way of preparation and at some considerable expense to the wards and the general committees. A drenching rain of course damped the ardor of the most Loyal of or. Van Buren s friends and others less Loyal wore Cool enough to leave the Field for their domicile. The sex president arrived at City Between two and three o clock. A committee of reception met him there and his friends met him in the City agreeably Wilh All the arrangements made by his friends. The address of Welcome was to be spoken by sex recorder Morris who for this and other services connected mainly with the seizure of private papers in the House of a citizen is to be made at the close of the Day the Loco Foco candidate for Slayer of the City. The nomination however is to be but a port of the evening s work. Or. Van Buren has promised Bis attendance at some of the places of Public amusement and on to Morrow evening there will be Quot a grand democratic Ball Quot at tammany Hall in Honor of his arrival. In the mean time it is Well enough to remember that or. Van Buren begins to be openly talked of As the opposition candidate for the presidency in 1844. Tho North River continues closed to Poughkeepsie and four Miles this Side. Tho rain will probably open it to Albany though the ice is very firm. Or. Crittenden will return in a any or two from Albany. Gen. Scott proceeds to the Frontier. The new order of things has begun at the Customhouse. The collector Surveyor and naval officer took Possession at 11 o clock this morning. The great number of arrivals within a Day or two past makes the business brisk. The subordinates at present remain As they were. The business of the City is Small to Day. Nothing done in stocks fancy or state worthy of note. I March 23. The circular of Tho president signed by the Secretary of slate and addressed to the office holders will do wonders to Correct the abuses which have grown up under the two administrations preceding the present. They who Havo sufi ered themselves to doubt can doubt no longer that the executive is in Earnest. For California and the West the newspapers of Missouri indicate quit an excitement on the subject of emigration to California and the Oregon we Are surprised to see evinced such a disposition to venture so far West a so far from government Security so far from the comforts of life so far from friends so far from civilization and then besides All these deterring thoughts the climate the Contention bet Wen the american and English governments in regard to the territory the British settlements and the probability that the conflicting claims of the two governments May Only be terminated by an Appeal to arms in which would be enlisted All the horrors and bloody deeds of Savage warfare added to the innumerable and nameless difficulties and privations to be encountered Are we should think Well calculated to make the most daring and Stout hearted pause before taking up their line of March on such an Enterprise. Should War break out Between great Britain and the United states even though not for a series of years to come there will be much to settled it will be a serious conflict a momentous contest and then will the isolated american citizen subject to the jealousy of the British settlements in that far Western and desolate abode indeed think himself fur from Home a far from that Succour which he might otherwise Hope to obtain from the Strong Arm of his government a god Speed to the Emigrant but while we have yet room and Hope and Prospect Here for thousands Wiere we can Promise them Security and Protection we would admonish them to it Fleet seriously upon All the consequences before they depart for a land to which that Security that Protection nor Rescue cannot come. Remember Wyoming a the foregoing remarks have been induced by the following extract which we take from an Exchange paper Quot at a very in go and spirited meeting held recently in Jackson county a company was formed consisting of fifty eight gentlemen Nineteen of whom have Taui Ilies which they will take with Thern. Quot this company invites All who wish to join them As emigrants to California to rendezvous at the sap Iling Grove on Tho old Sinta be route about nine Miles West of the Missouri state line against the 10th of May next. Quot a Recio Lution was passed appointing a committee of Corr dependence consisting of it it sirs. R. Rickman a. Overton and or. Hensley to give information to in regard to the expedition. Quot the following resolutions were also passed and show that they have begun the thing in the right Way resolved that All persons either Singia or having families shall be provided with a sufficiency of provisions and other necessaries to insure them against want till they reach tie Buffalo Region. Further resolved that no person shall be permitted to take any spirituous liquors except for medical purposes. Quot the country to which they propose to Migrate is described As exceedingly eligible in All Points of View a whether commercial or agricultural. The climate is salubrious and delightful the soil Rich the natural productions various and All the Means of a comfortable subsistence afforded in abundance. A glorious Era is no doubt dawning Oit those regions so favored by nature and they who first take Possession have All before them where to choose. To the Young Tho buoyant and the enterprising the Field is full of promises. They May not Only grow Rich by skin Industry and perseverance but May achieve the splendid Fame of laying deep and Broad the foundation of Empire. From the Cincinnati Gazette. A fairs of Texas. We have olt irregular files of Texas papers to the Middle of february the condition of the Young Republic according to their representations is very cheering. The necessary appropriations for the year 1841, fail several Hundred Thi usand dollars within the certain Revennie the indians on the Frontier have be subdued the Prospect of a treaty with Mexico is becoming much Isidre favourable than it has been heretofore and the Best districts of the country Are fast filling up with a Good population. Congress adjoin in de without Day on the 4th of february. The subjoined remarks upon its doings and the condition of the Republic Are from the Huston Telegraph of the 17th. Our citizens have reason to look Back upon the proceedings of this cd egress with extreme satisfaction All that was within the Power of the legislature relieve the pecuniary , and �9 big sub and the resources of tiie country has been fully accomplished. Much has been done to re Medy the defects in the judiciary system of the Republic of Iio new and Beautiful financial scheme has been devised and promulgated a Plain simple policy has been adopted Quot that will be found adequate to the wants of the country and if carefully pursued will fend More effectually to elevate the Rita tonal credit a tid to inspire general Confidence than All the splendid vagaries that have Ever before excited the admiration or secured the Sanction of legislative Aii Hority.
