The latest dates from Washington Are up to and including last saturday the eighth Day that the president has had the Bank Bill in his Possession. The complexion and Tenor of All the information from Washington Lead us to the conclusion that the chances Are of the Side of a veto. Members of Congress write responding by and some of the newspapers supposed organs of or. Tyler Are evidently preparing the Way for a veto. Our most observing and sagacious men Here Are divided in their conjectures. Some think that or. Tyler will veto the Bill others that he will return it with objections to certain parts and ask a modification of them to suit his views while others insist that he Quot will approve it or suffer it to become a Law by keeping it in his pocket Over ten Days. In the event he vetoes the Bill a what will be done what will be the course and policy of the whig party will it dissolve or will it remain firm and United Are questions Many Are anxiously asking. So far As we Are individually concerned Are we prepared to answer. We do not consider that the Bank question is the Only great measure or principle advocated by the whigs. The distribution and Preemption measures combined a protective Tariff for the purposes of meeting the Ordinary expenses of government the Reform of the abuses that have crept into the government and other measures of less note will be enough to keep the whigs United. Around these measures popular and wholesome As they Are we can rally As a party and with Energy and Union maintain the Ascendancy until they Are engrafted us on the country. To Etc Dank will go into operation. Let the Issue be made before the people Quot Bank or sub Treasury Quot or Quot Bank or no Bank Quot and though it May take four years to accomplish it a National Bank will be chartered. Many very Many particularly among the mechanics and Farmers of the Van Buren party Are As warmly and decidedly in favor of an institution of the kind As the most anxious of the whigs. Let the question be fairly submitted to the people of Indiana let the next presidential election avowedly and openly turn upon that question and the Bank candidate will get the vote of the state by a majority of the Bank party in this state is stronger than Ever the Harrison party was. If or. Tyler should veto the Bill we Hope our friends will not denounce him. We Are willing to believe that nothing but conscientious and constitutional scruples will constrain him to do an act that he knows a Large majority of his constituents Are opposed to his doing. Let us wait patiently until his time expires and then put a Man in that elevated station that will obey the will of the people. It May appear a Long time to wait but it is better to wait that length of time than take such an institution As the executive will probably offer the country. Known to be elected. Four districts yet remain to be heard from three of which by the returns of the presidential election in 40, Are Loco Foco and one whig. Of the members known to be elected to the House thirty two Are whigs and Twenty four Loco focus. The senatorial election. We Are assured that the people of the surrounding counties of both parties Are looking with great solicitude to the result of the approaching senatorial contest in this county. The whigs from their partial defeat the first of this month seem once More animated with a desire to occupy the ascendant and show the world that they have not repudiated their former principles and they look to their Brethren in this county to speak in their behalf and Thunder Forth the wishes of the party throughout the state. Their opponents on the other hand say that their friends of Marion have a Man in the Field that cannot be beaten that the whigs will be Defeated that that will be conclusive As to the political feelings in this county and that next August they will finish the work throughout the state. Will our friends disappoint the reasonable expectations of their friends abroad will they by neglect or otherwise give another and perhaps fatal Stab to their party do they wish again to listen to the Crow ing of the Cackler Over their own discomfiture we sincerely Trust that our friends will take a Correct View of the importance of the coming special election and again act for themselves and the Best interests of their country.

The following Are furl air Par Licul irs in reference to this very melancholy disaster a Pencial account of a Titch was Given in our paper yesterday from the Buffalo commercial. Advertiser a Pusl l0.�. Most a Ai Amity. Destruction or the Eric by fire and the io>4s of one Hiildred and Sci Clit lives. Little did we Lii Ink yesterday in penning a Brief paragraph in commendation of the Erie that to Day we should be called upon to record the destruction of that boat together with a loss of life Neq dialled on our own or almost any other Waters. The Erie left the Dock at 10 minutes past 4, p. M loaded with merchandise destined for Chicago and As nearly As now can be ascertained about two Hundred persons including Pas senders and Crew on Board. The boat had been thoroughly overhauled and although the wind was blow no fresh every thing promised a pleasant and prosperous voyage. Nothing occurred to mar this Prospect till about 8, when the boat was off Silver Creek about 8 Miles from Shore and 33 Miles from this City when a slight explosion was heard and Ini mediately instantaneously almost the whole vessel was enveloped in flames. Capt. Titus who was on the upper deck at the time rushed to the ladies Cabin to obtain the life preservers of which there were from 90 to Loo on Board but so rapid had been the Progress of the flames he found it impossible to enter the Cabin. He returned to the upper deck on his Way giving orders to Engineer to Stop the engine the wind and the head Way of the boat increasing the fierceness of the flames and driving them aft. The Engineer replied that in consequence of the flames he could not reach the engine. The Steerman was instantly directed to put the Helm hard a starboard. The vessel swung slowly round heading to the Shore and the boats there were three on boards were then ordered to be lowered. Two of the boats were lowered but in consequence of the heavy sea on Aid the headway of the vessel they both swamped a soon As they touched water. We will not attempt to describe the awful and appalling condition of the passengers. Some were frantic with fear and horror others plunged headlong madly into the water others again seized upon any thing buoyant upon which they could Lay hands. The Small boat Forward had been lowered. It was alongside the wheel with three or four persons in it when the Captain jumped in and the boat immediately dropped astern filled with water. A lady floated by with a life preserver on. She cried for help. Liere was no safety in the she caught the oar and was saved. It was mrs. Lynde of Milwaukee and she was the Only lady saved. In this condition the boat was a mass of fierce fire and the passengers and Crew endeavouring to save themselves by a i morning or supporting themselves by whatever they could reach they were found by the Clinton at about 10, p. M. Tie Clinton left Here in the morning but in consequence of the wind had put into Dunkirk. Site Laid there until nearly Sunset at which time she ran out and had proceeded As far As Barcelona when just at Twilight the fire of the Erie was discovered some 2 it Miles astern. The Clinton immediately Puta Bottand reached the burning wreck about 10. It was a fearful sight. All the upper works of the Erie had been burned away. The engine was standing but the Hull was a miss of Dull red Fly me. The pass fingers and Crew were floating around screaming in their agony and shrieking for Kielp. The boats of the Clinton were instantly inv err and manned and every person that could be seen or heard was picked up and every possible Relief Afi order. The lady a Little steam boat lying at Dunkirk went out of that Harbor As soon As possible after the discovery of the fire and arrived soon after the Clinton. It was not thought by the survivors that she saved any. By 1, a. M. All was still except the dead cracking of the fire. Nota solitary individual could be seen or heard on the wild waste of Waters. A line was then made fast to the remains of the Erie s rudder and an Eft Brt made to Tow the hapless Hull ashore. About this time the Hautau que came up and Lent her assistance. The Hull of the Erie was towed within about four Miles of the Shore when it sunk in eleven fathoms water. By this time it was Day Light. The lines were cast of. The Clinton headed for this port which she reached about 6 o clock. Of those who Are saved several Are badly burned but none Are dangerously injured so far is we have heard. Origin of the the passengers on Board were six painters in the employ of or. W. G. Miller of this City who were going to Erie to paint the Steamboat Madison they had with them dem Johns filled with spirits of turpentine and varnish which unknown to capt. Titus were placed on the boiler deck Over the boilers. One of the , who was saved says he had occasion to go on deck and being the dem Johns removed them. They were replaced but by whom is not known. Immediately previous to the bursting Forth of the flames As several on Board have assured us a slight explosion was heard. The dem Johns had probably burst with the heat and their inflammable contents taking fire instantly communicated to every part of the boat which having been freshly varnished caught As if it had Beon Gunpowder. Not a paper nor an article of any kind was saved. Of course it is impossible to give a Complete list of those on Board. Of Cabin passengers Captain Titus thinks there were Between thirty and forty of whom ten or twelve were ladies. In the Steerage were a bout 140 passengers nearly All of whom were Swiss and German immigrants. They were mostly in families with the usual proportion of men women and children. The heart bleeds at the thought. It is a singular coincidence that the Erie was burned at almost identically the same spot where the Washington was burned in june 1838. Captain Brown who commanded the Washington at that Tim happened to be on Board the Clinton and was very Active in saving the survivors of the Eric. A unwilling to leave the places which for years they have corrupted and disgraced the people have demanded their discharge and require it instantly and though the new administration Are in some cases executing the judgment of the it Ople still these official Ai no virus grumble snap am snarl As though they and they alone were entitled to office and Trust Quot Jio sooner is one of Toliese Fellows turned out than he Bulous Quot Gull Otfred Quot Quot Guillotine do Quot Quot the Guillotine is in motion Quot yes and they too Are in motion and we Trust they will be kept moving until every office Holder who has interfered either directly or indirectly in the elections is hurled from his Post Carroll express. The Locos have much congratulation with each other Over the result of tie election in this Elkhart and Porter counties. We looked for defeat in Porter and Elkhart but never dreamed that they would have the Hardihood to claim the result in this county As a Loco Triumph. Let them have it so and to help them along we will give them a verse to sing amid their rejoicings a Quot a those Are shining spots friends in our dark worldly strife three spoonfuls of molasses in the Winnegar of life Quot Mich. City Gaz. New Orleans new on jeans advertiser of the 22d ult., gives the following account of a War now in Progress among the Banks of that Cit the War has commenced in Earnest among sundry of our Banks. Early in july says Mother Rumor some bickering was observed at the table of the Board of presidents. One of them proposed a Resolution to enquire into the condition of the Orleans Bank. It was amended by one of her friends so As to extend the examination to All the Banks and carried. After this some skirmishing took place when the Orleans submitted to three gentlemen a statement of her affairs in detail and they certified with her ability to pay her debts amp a. The great plea of the Bank of Orleans for not submitting to inspection was that she had refused fre Quenila her masters the legislature and she did not now intend to yield the principle. The inquiring Banks urged that they wanted to be satisfied if they continued to guarantee her paper by taking it As currency. On tuesday the citizens and Union Banks refused to receive on Deposit or in payment of debts the notes of the contumacious Orleans. This terrible blow at her credit was returned by the Orleans issuing a similar chop. On wednesday the Orleans retired from the Bank league yesterday the Union followed suit. Considerable excitement has followed these extraordinary movements. What do they All mean7 More anon. Who wants to fight. John Smith or. Of Arkansas has published an affidavit of somebody exculpate no the Rev or.

From the Cincinnati Gazette. The Tea and Coffee tax. The enquirer cries shame upon the whigs for passing the Revenue Bill. He commiserate the condition of the Quot poor Man Mechanic the labourer and Farmer Quot a his capacious bowels yearn with compassion for them while under the Burthen of this abominable Bill. He says of the Quot industrious Mechanic Quot that if he Quot is doing a business that he saves one fifth of and lays it up in the Hope to be Able soon to Purchase a Home for himself and family he will find at the end of the year under the new order of things that he has made nothing his expenses will have increased one fifth and swept away his entire pro again he says Quot you will pay five cents tax upon every Quarter of Tea that you use Quot a and All this Quot for the Benefit of Stock jobbers and the United states Bank Quot this if True certainly presents a bad state of the Case a but How Are the facts the official tables show that in the year 1 40, there were imported into the United slates 19,981,476 pounds of Tea at the average Cost of 27 11-00 cents per Pound and 94,996,095 pounds of coff be at the average Cost of 9 cents per impound. The duties Are estimated and paid upon these values and the average duty on a Pound of Tea under the new Law will be a Little less than 5 1-2 cents and upon the Pound of Coffee a fraction Over 1 1-4 cents now let any honest and intelligent Man Farmer or Mechanic say if such a tax will Swallow up his entire profits and compel him to reduce the wages of his labourers each can readily Tell How much he will have to pay by adding up the tax upon the number of pounds of Cooee and Tea that he purchases in a year the question is too Plain to admit of mistake or the imposition of political calculators. The duty on the Pound of Tea is not one fourth of what the enquirer estimates it so much for his accuracy. Tea and Coffee were retained in the Bill subject to tiie increased tax by tie Loco Foco votes the whigs having determined to strike them out. Or Lawrence moved in order to carry out the determination to Amend the Bill by striking out those articles. The Locos prevented the question upon this proposition by a motion of theirs to Amend the amendment by adding Quot sugar molasses and the whole Loco Foco party United in voting for this amendment and in conjunction with such Ultra anti Tai if whigs As wished Tea and Coffee to be taxed carried it a division of the question was called for by the whigs but refused and so Tea and Coffee by this Loco Foco manoeuvre were kept in the Bill yet these Are the very men who now raise a Hue and cry against the Wiigs for laying this tax is it True that the Revenue Bill was introduced to raise Money Quot for the Benefit of Stock jobbers and the United states Bank Quot As the enquirer asserts very far from it. Tha Van Buren administration had saddled upon the country a debt of .$12,000,000, and left a Revenue at least $6,000,000 below the Ordinary expenses of the government and even that Revenue undergoing a still further reduction under the operation of the Compromise Tariff estimated As sufficient to increase the det Init to $10,000,000. It was to raise Money to defray the Ordinary expenses of the government to Supply this deficit and ultimately to repay the Money the new administration were compelled to borrow As the Only Means of meeting the obligations thrown upon them by their predecessors that the Revenue Bill was introduced. How can it Benefit Stock jobbers or the Bank it is pro used by the Revenue Bill to raise $ 2,892,-762, by duty upon Tea and Coffie. This is complain of of As a Burthen some and oppressive tax. The new administration finds the country in debt and without Means to meet its engagements it finds a d it Ficie it Revenue for Ordinary purposes it finds the aspect of our foreign relations so threatening As to Call for increased expenditures to put the country in a condition to defend itself against attack and As one of the Means of raising the Money absolutely required for these purposes proposes a tax upon Tea and Coffee to the amount of ,>$2,892,762, say $3,000,000, which apportioned equally among our population of 17,000,000 will amount to say 16 cents a year for each person the enquirer is shocked at this enormous tax by a party that so loudly denounced the Van Buren project of reducing the wages of labor to 12 1-2 cents a Day Good people which do you prefer to pay a tax of 16 1-2 cents a year for each member of your family or to have the wages of a Labouring Man reduced to 12 1-2 cents a Day which is Best for you from the Jav. O. Picayune. Impudence punished. Never was a piece of impudence More beautifully rewarded than yesterday in a Case which came under our Especial observation. We record it Fop the Benefit of the rising generation which has already Liseno for a neater rebuke was never yet administered since the adoption of the Federal Constitution a about six o clock last evening two Bucks Well known about town for their very Quot free and easy Quot deportment were seen strolling upon St Charles Street near Trivoli Circle they were evidently in search of an adventure if one could be permitted to judge from the manner with which they surveyed every House they passed As Well As every person they met females especially. The conclusion to which we arrived was t at they had managed at the dinner table to Deposit an extra Quantity of wine where Tom Moore poor Paddy Power Quot do you see that Vest or Wadt Quot kept his heart Videlicet beneath their Vest. At length they met a lady who seemed to suspect before she reached them that their object was to gaze into her face and As she approached them she discovered something wonderfully interesting upon the opposite Side of the Street which she had not fairly surveyed until the gentlemen ? had passed her. Quot i say Jack Quot said one of them with a genteel Hiccough Quot did you see her fact Quot Quot no i did t did you Quot Quot no but i should like to Devilish Well should t you How like a Juno she Steps on and what a beautifully shaped woman she is in t she Quot Quot Fine upon my soul i m bound to see her face by Jove there s nothing like boldness i la go and show her my handkerchief and ask her if she Han t dropped Quot capital take mine it s a better one Cost seventy five dollars a dozen it Lias t been taken from my pocket Jack took the nicely folded and perfumed handkerchief and hastened after the lady now nearly a Square in Advance. Quot i beg your Pardon Madam Quot said Jack hat off Quot i think you dropped the lady cast upon him a glance from a pair of the keenest Black eyes in the world dropped a half Courtesy took the handkerchief and with a freezing Quot thank you sir Quot walked quietly upon Lier Way. The smile so exquisitely composed which rested upon her. Lips As she tripped Down the Street was a perfect dial dragon convulsed. The poor Beau stood for a moment As though Thunder struck but a most Hearty and unaffected Haw Haw hair from a rough fellow who stood gazing Over the paling and had witnessed the entire operation recalled him to his senses. He joined his companion and they hastily moved away Quot Well Damme Quot exclaimed Jack Quot that was just the coolest thing i Ever did hear of i seen Quot alone in his danger and glory Quot by paying a Quarter for crossing the Bridge to Goat islands a tra Mendlous excitement prevails at the Falls people Rush to the Rescue from Buffalo like mad and As soon As the object is accomplished Robison Cruso strikes a fire and the Aff air ends in smoke. Tribute to Washington a Quot hard indeed was the contest for Freedom and the struggle for Independence. The Golden Sun of Liberty had nearly set in the gloom fan eternal night Ere its gradient beams illumined our Western horizon. Had not the tutelary Saint of Columbia hovered around the american Camp and presided Over her destinies Freedom must have met with an untimely grave. Never can we sufficiently Admire the Wisdom of those unconquerable veterans who by their unwearied exertions in the Cabinet and and in the Field achieved for us the glorious revolution never can we duly appreciate the memory of Washington who with a handful of undisciplined yeomanry triumphed Over the Royal army and prostrated the lion of England at the foot of the american Eagle his name so terrible to his foes so Welcome to his friends shall live forever upon the brightest Page of the historian Aud be remembered with the warmest emotions of gratitude and pleasure by those whom he has contributed to make Happy and by All Mankind when Kings and princes and Nobles for Ages shall have sunk into their merited oblivion. Unlike them he needs not the assistance of the sculptor or architect to perpetuate his memory. He needs no princely dome no monumental pile no stately Pyramid whose towering height shall Pierce the Stormy Clouds and rear its lofty head to heaven to Tell posterity his Fame. His deeds his worthy deeds alone have rendered him immortal when oblivion shall sweep away thrones kingdoms and principalities when every vestige of human greatness Anh grandeur and g Ory shall have moulded into the dust and the last period of time become extinct eternity itself shall catch the glowing theme and dwell with increasing rapture on his to ii.

Tippecanoe Monument. Peace to thrashes of the Brave men who fell at Tippecanoe we rejoice to notice that the subject of erecting a Monument upon the Battle ground at Tippecanoe is beginning to be agitated in some portions of the state. A More laudable undertaking cannot be conceived Llic respect which is paid by a nation to the Success of her arms and the memory of her str Gorles is the surest Index to the hearts of her people the patriotism and love of country. We can require no stronger evidence of this than the fact that whilst the civic honors of nations which have preceded us have Long been buried in common the grave of forgetfulness the Field of their conquests Yea the soil in which Are entombed their Gallant and heroic sons and consecrated As the hollow resting places of that i dauntless and War worn Soldier and As these memorable spots for centuries Nave remained thro Tigh countless Ages they will continue to be the noblest theme of the poet the orator the philosopher. The Fields of Thermo pulse Marathon and phar Salia have survived the wreck of empires and the crash and crumbling of countless thrones constantly growing in celebrity by the lapse of time until their names Are Graven upon the pages of undying history and will Ever remain not less enduring or immortal than Sparta Rome or Athens names that Are written in living burning Light upon the scroll of time. And when All which now exists of of amp Iye rement and institutions shall be passing pass Myrd centuries hence they shall be numbered Ami a Lre things that were Liat shall speak stronger of the character valor and patriotism of those who established a government of constitutional Freedom in the Western hemisphere than the Fields of Concord Lexington and Bunker s Hill Wii at shall speak stronger of the prowess and bravery of those who enlisted in the second struggle of our Independence and which confirmed the character and sovereignty of that government than Lundy s Lane new Orleans and Tippecanoe if such is the importance attached to the Battle Fields sepulchre of the departed Patriot a How Strong the inducements which must restrain the people of this Republic to leave some testimony of their respect or regard for the memory of those who bared their bosoms to the sword of the enemy and freely consecrated their lives and blood to the support of our institutions. And to no portion of the country do these observations More emphatically address themselves than to the people of the West no where were heroism roman courage and devoted patriotism More nobly manifested than upon the Battle Field of Tippecanoe. Though the glory of that Triumph belongs to the whole country yet the Honor of the achievement is justly yielded to the daring bravery of the West Phe Buckeye the Hoosier and kentuckian stood Side by Side under the guidance of the pliant Harbison in that trying conflict and their blood deeply Crim soned the unruffled Waters of the Wabash As it flowed mingling and commingling in swelling currents from that Field of death. No Monument is required to perpetuate the memory of that struggle or to augment its glory they will live in the works of the orator and the historian Long after the lines of the sculptor Are obliterated and the the Stone itself has crumbled into dust. Yet a Monument worthy the spot should be reared. We owe it to the Brave Meri whose remains lib smouldering with its soil we owe it to the Gallant commander whose departure we have been so recently called to mourn we owe it to the country we owe it to the age in who to live and we Are urged by All the considerations of duty to perform this work of patriotism now a All the scenes of that trying hour which gave consequence and celebrity to this sacred spot Are now fresh in the recollection of every citizen. The nation yet mourns the death of the heroic Soldier around whose brow her Chaplet Vas entwined and her citizens Are yet moistening with their tears the peaceful sepulchre which encloses his last remains. Never again will so favourable an Opportunity present itself for the execution of this worthy act. One half Century May pass away and if we neglect this work nothing will remain of gratitude from us not even a Token of our regard for those High and daring deeds of our fathers which paved the Way for our own settlements and wealth and the safety and Prosperity of our children. Let us now strike and strike right and with an Effort the requisite funds will be raised and a Monument erected which vill remain a standing memento of the Pride the gratitude and patriotism of the people of Tho West.
