This communication is made with the Sanction of the president of the United states and it is hoped that till otherwise prescribed by ingress or by this department these requirements and requests will be faithfully com lied with by All the fiscal agents of this de Arment and All the collecting and disbursing officers of the government. Levi Woodbury. Secretary of the Treasury. Treasury department 22d feb. 1836. J circular quot to receivers of Public moneys collectors disbursing officers and the Deposit Banks of the United states. Gihm Dnad township or frack a Nobl township of the established policy of the Treasury department so far As May be practicable under its present Powers Over the collection keep ing and disbursement of the Public Money is to diminish the circulation of Small Bank notes and to substitute specie and especially Gold for such notes with a View of rendering the currency of the country through which its fiscal operations Are performed More Safe sound and uniform. In pursuance of Liat policy a circular was issued last april which prohibited after the 30th septem ice 1835, the receipt on account of the government of any Bank notes of less denomination than five dollars and which intimated that other Steps to promote the desirable objects before named would in due time be taken. Consequently in further pursuance of the same policy you Are hereby required after the first of May next not to pay the a canc of any Public officer or creditor in any ban notes of a less denomination than five dollars and except Wien it May be otherwise pre scribed by Law after the 4th of july next not to receive or pay on account of the govern ment any Bank notes of a less denomination than ten dollars. All the Deposit Banks Are requested to sup ply themselves with such a Quantity of american Gold Coin As to be Able to pay and when a Public officer or creditor prefers it and his demand does not exceed five Hundred Dollar to pay at least one fifth of such demand in that Coin. It is also requested that the Deposit Banks w ill not after the 4th of july next Issue any notes of a less denomination than five dollars and that after the 3d of March 1837, they will not unless the subject be otherwise regulated by Congress Issue any notes of a less denomination than ten dollars. It is believed that the amount of Gold which by that time shall be coined at the mint will be sufficient to admit of the convenient substitution of it for Small notes in a much greater extent than at present and it is deemed reasonable that while the Deposit Banks have the use without interest of unusually Large sums of the pub he Money they should make some further temporary sacrifices to obtain and circulate Gold and in other respects to enlarge the specie basis of our circulating medium. From these considerations and from the Liberal spirit evinced by most of the Public depositories in a late correspondence with them on this subject it is confidently expected that in this state of things they will cheerfully comply with the above requests and with All others which have been made by the department with a i jew of improving the currency nor will Itji ust be considered i ust or impolitic whil<4 the Deposit Banks shall continue to enjoy great privileges from the Treasury to regard a neglect or refusal by any of them to comply with those requests As sufficient cause for discontinuing the employment of such Banks As a fiscal agent. At a proper time it will be decided under what a and at what periods these restrictions on the agent and off Cert of the character of Tecumseh. The following is a Short sketch of the character of Tecumseh who fell at the Battle of in thames., the celebrated aboriginal quot of Firrito Tecumseh was in the 44th year of his age when he fell at the Battle of the thames. He was one of the Shawnee tribe five feet ten inches High Well formed for activity and the endurance of fatigue which he was capable of sustaining in very extraordinary degree. His Carriage was erect and lofty his eyes penetrating his in with an air of Hauter in his coun Enance which arose from an elevated Pride of soul it did not leave him even in lis eloquence was nervous concise impressive figurative and sarcastic being of a Taci urn habit of speech his words were few but always to the purpose. His dress Plain he was never known to indulge in the Gaudy decorations of his body which is the general practice of the indians. He wore on the Day of lis death a dressed Deer skin coat and Panta sons. He could neither read write nor speak English. He was in every respect a , the greatest perhaps since the Days of Pontiac. His ruling Maxim in War was to take no prisoners and he strictly adhered to the sanguinary Pur-30sc of his soul he neither gave nor accepted Quarter. Yet paradoxical As it May seem to the prisoners of other tribes he was attentive and humane nay in one instance he is said to have buried his Tomahawk in the head of a Chippeway chief whom he found actively engaged in Masai crying some of Dudley s men after having been taken prisoners by the British and indians. It had Long been the favorite project of this aspiring chief to unite the Northern Western and Southern indians for regaining their country As far As the Ohio. Whether this grand project originated in his negative he desired her to wait a moment whilst he went to Call one but she replied quot that there was no occasion Foi that As she had but a few Steps to the Duchess allowed him to hand her Down stairs when she suddenly turned towards the Entrance of a narrow passage. Imagining that she had mistook the Way he said quot Madam you Are going wrong Don t you see the people Are going on that Way quot pointing to a door which led into the Street when she replied smiling quot indeed i am going right which you will presently see by this time she had. Reached a door that opened into the passage when giving a few gentle taps the door flew open and discovered a magnificent Hall splendidly lighted up the Porter with a Silver staff in his hand announced the arrival of the Princess twice in a loud voice quot Madame la Duchess d it is easier to conceive than describe said the prior the astonishment of the stranger which the Duchess highly enjoying smilingly said quot come Corne in you shall not be disappointed As you wished to sup with me the stranger was still immovable and seemed almost petrified. The Duchess bursting into an immoderate fit of laughter asked what had become of All his Good humor and pleasantry with which she was so charmed a quot you seem quite quot indeed Madam i am for while we were together in heaven us Cicur we were on an Equality but i am truly sensible o the great difference there is Between us now we Are upon Earth his ready reply so pleased the Duchess tha she presented him to the Duke when he was received As a favorite in Ever a Good one.

A when arrived he thought proper tit be Gin with Lois the eldest daughter a a about eighteen years of age and Boxum As May whose charms had smitten the Young Villaro swains with an epidemic. A Well Lois said the Parson quot i shall begin with you come Tell me who died for Lois with a charming flush in her Cheek replied quot Why nobody As i knows the Parson rather Surpri de at her answer repeated his question with increased Zeal. Lois rather irritated at the inquisitive Parson again replied quot Why nobody sir there was Tom Daw sign Lay bedridden for me about six months but folks say he has got about own or his brother s mind or was suggested by the British is not known but this much is certain he cherished the plan with enthusiasm and actually visited the Creek indians to prevail on them to join the undertaking. He was always opposed to the Sale of Indian lands. In a Council at Vincennes in 1810, he was found equal to the insidious arts of a Diplomatist. In one of his speeches he pronounced Gen. Harrison a liar. He has been in almost every Battle with the americans from the time of har Mer s defeat to that of the thames. A few moments before he received the fatal fire of col. Wheatley he had received a Musket Ball in his left Arm yet his efforts to conquer ceased Only with his life. When a youth and before the treaty of Greenville he had so often signalized himself that he was reputed one of the boldest of the Indian warriors. In the first settlement of Kentucky he was peculiarly Active in seizing boats going Down the Ohio killing the Passi tigers and Cai trying off their property. He made frequent incursions in Kentucky he Koukl invariably murder some of the settlers and escape with several horses Laden with plunder. He always eluded Pursuit and when too closely pressed would retire to the Wabash. His re ing passion seems to have been glory he was careless of wealth and although his plundering and subsidies must have amounted to a great sum he preserved Little for himself. After his fall on the 5th of october his per soil was viewed with great interest by the officers and soldiers of Harrison s army. It was some time before the identity of his person was sufficient to remove All doubt As to the certainty of his death. Kentucky Gazette. Laughable adventure.
