Written on the death of my infant boy of death alas thy fearful Power has triumphed in this Stormy hour and robbed a mothers heart. Iii torn this Flag log from its nest its tender Home a Mother s and bid it hence depart. Of god give strength for sorrows hour to meet this fearful tempests Power to meet a fathers will. Sty to this tempest be at rest this wild delirium of my breast say to it a a peace be the sorrows of a mothers breast robbed of the Hopes that made it Blest no human Tongue can Tell. Of father May this sad heart still Bow meekly to thy Sovereign will a for thou do st All things a a a tvs finished Quot now no heaving breath disturbs its peaceful sleep in death life a tender Cord is riven. Still on that infant sleepers brow a gentle smile is lingering now a a How like a thing of h the wild winds As they moan Over thee May chant their Dirge like minstrelsy. And sing thy requiem Over. But thy Young spirit freed from gloom. Has soared a a beyond the skies and Tomb a where sorrows Home no More. This Little one too fair for Earth a Sunbeam of immortal birth. Not Long to Earth is Given. It has a Home of lond less skies where no dark storms of sorrow Rise lost one thy Home is heaven. No More it needs a mothers care a mothers smile a mothers prayer a Mother s changeless love. Those infant Joys and Griefs Oro Over that Little heart beats worm no More loved one i thy Home s above. A Isabel. Rev. Or. Bushnell and California. A a thereat presbyterian Church referred to by or. Bushnell in his report of things in California is understood to he or. Scott a Calvary presbyterian Charob and we have authority to say that Hie representations of it Are altogether incorrect. That Church has never sold tickets for a Hall nor done any thing of the sort to support its pastor. Its pastor s salary is raised by Pew rents in the usual Way. We copy the following from the san Franeisco town talk of october 18, in relation to or Burin cell s mis representations made to the association of Connecticut. Rev. Or. s letter some few months since the query was propounded to Many of our citizens if they had seen the published speeches of the Rev or. Bushnell and Rev. T. Dwight Hunt made before the general association of misters in Connecticut soon after their return East from California. Few Persona could answer the quest they had seen it but could not Tell where it could be found or who possessed copies thereof. Ail of them seemed to have been intentionally suppressed by those at lease who had taken an Active Lively interest in the establishment of the Oakland Over which or. Bushnell had been called to preside and who with him had been very Active in calling upon our benevolent citizens with a View of obtaining from them Large donations toward the founding of scholarships and otherwise placing the Oakland College on a firm and substantial basis. We know that Many Christian gentlemen were astonished and grieved at the report of or Bushnell after having. Been kindly and. Politely treated by the citizens of our state. He bad been invited to partake of their hospitality at their own Homes had been invited by them to occupy the pulpits of various Christian churches Here and in the Interior of our state and now Forsooth because our people did not Home up to the Rescue to endow liberally a Bucknell professorship in Oakland College with a View of his removal and permanent settlement in our state he comes up before a Church association in Connecticut and tells his Eastern Brethren that a the Ebreo leading pursuits of our people Are agriculture Trade and mining a that the former is carried on by the a a Border ruffians and the squatters a amp a amp a. _. _ he then passes on to the t burches in California in san Francisco he finds one a a Over which or Hunt has the charge is a living godly Hureh a &o., that he also found in California a a a great presbyterian Church which is especially fashionable a &c., and that this Church a a had gotten up dances to raise Money for their minister by the Sale of tickets for the Ball at a great other assertions equally false Are also stated in the meagre abstract which appeared in the Christian advocate of october 16th. Bat Why or. Bushnell should thus assail our citizens and publish such slanderous epithets to the world concerning our churches and people is something we do not understand nor object in calling the attention of your readers to this letter is simply to put on record a Public denial and refutation of the charges made by him. That the Church re letters from the North. By this term As used m this correspond ence readers May understand All the. Region North of Chicago and running on this parallel of Foi y two degrees to the Stocky mountains. But we shall not weary ourselves by travelling Oyer so Brood a Field. In furnishing some letters in reference to this interesting Region we shall confine ourselves to Wisconsin As it now is. The geography As i now is is that Region West of Lake Mich Gan and fast of the Mississippi bounded on the North a almost 1 entirely by i Ike Superior and South by i Illinois it has a length of rom two Bun dred and Twenty to three Hundred and ten Miles and a breadth of from one Hundred., and fort to two Hundred and eighty Miles i it ins thus an area of sixty three thousand nine Hundred and Twenty four Squire Miles Only about one. Third of which it is supposed is yet occupied. Its present population in about six Hundred thousand and this is that fair inheritance non which we have indicated the other characteristics we wish to fix the attention of your readers and for purposes which will appear in the course of our remarks. History.,. This state was first visited for occupation by the French missionaries As Early As 1763 they had their stations at Green Bay and no the Northern Fox River where Many affecting ruins still Bear witness to the Zeal and self denial if not the Wisdom of. These pioneers. They finally penetrated under Marquette Jolliet la Salle and others to what is now made the Junction of. The Fox and Wisconsin Rivers at Portage and thence sailing Down this last to the missis. Sippy explored the father of Waters to its Mouth let Vigo Many traces of their labors in places still bearing their names., it does not appear however that Many White settlements were made during this period. The. Country remained under the jurisdiction of France until m 1763, it was ceded to the British. Not much of of eur Paney does its history exhibit however until our War of Independence when with other parts of a free Aud Independent sover. Eighty it began to receive Small settlements As at Green Bay fond do lao and fort Winnebago and not Long after at Chicago the included in our hounds Milwaukee and some others.,-. Sgt. Several changes were in the meantime effected with j regard to boundaries. A the population began to increase rapidly. And Wisconsin a it now is was made a territory in. .1836, finally having reached a. Sufficient population we became a state and were admitted into the Union with a free Constitution and equal privileges. In 1848. I have thus sketched an outline of our history . Without going into the details of our Early struggles and great men i leave j that to others shown the birth and growth to Ita present statute of a state yet Only 1 about nine years old. A. Were we looking to a country witty refer Enoe to its advantages we shoud Host regard those features a not immediately connected with human subsistence and its comforts this is our clue and we must therefore next speak of this state its natural history. Its climate is unquestionably a a Good one better indeed so far As health , than any the writer of. These a Tieles has Ever been acquainted. More Hilly and variegated than Michigan or Illinois its water is in general better while a pure atmosphere affords the most delightful Sun sets and in general a Ong. And pleasant a Quot turns of not less than two or three. Months duration. generally drained and very few of the ,.foyers of a dew., country Are heard of. The result is that the rate of mortality is very Small not More for the five years of the writers residence Here. Than one per cent. At most. Yet it is at times very cold particularly when our Forth / winds come across the Prairies and from latitude it a nut it be remembered As High As forty seven degrees. Are bout equal in their mean temperature to those of a a Albany new York. Bat they Are ,., and Here is our greatest annoy acc. Our last two Winters have than fax a months each yet our mid Winters Are generally open and mild and we Are not. As. Much burdened with As at the. East. -. A. The climate on the whole is healthful in. A remarkable degree. It is very Seldom if Ever that a. Case of pulmonary consumption originates with us yet it would be a m stake to suppose there Are no deaths of this character. I have known Many and the Yare a almost uniformly of those who have come West in the vain arresting that disease after it was fairly porn fenced a a the geology of this Region must have a. Passing notice. We have no. Coal and this seems at first remarkable As it abounds in. Illinois and even in Iowa. The fact seems to be however that from about a out Southern limits there is a geological descent to the Granite Region of Lake Superior so that the whole carboniferous strata with that above it is gone this while it forbids the Hope Lias thus been developed to Trust to turn the attention of our older and More favored states upon us. Ours is beyond All disputation a a Field which god has but it is altogether , in a formative state and we shall see in the Progress of these communications How much it needs the lights of education religion and Good inhabitants to make it. What a Bountiful god evidently intended. In the Hope or. Editor that you with others.1 May be Able to Aid us in this Good work i have commenced these letters and am As Ever. Yours it.

The directors and proprietors of joint Stock Banks in London found the a Drain on them enormous. They went Bank of England and pointed out that there would to a Universal bankruptcy if something decided was not. Done. The result was that the government was communicate with by deputation and the letter to the Bank directory was issued permitting an increased Issue of notes but re Quinn that the interest should still be not lower than ten per cent.

And recommend to their consideration such measures As i May judge to be a a necessary a but first and above All our thanks Are due. To almighty god for the numerous benefits which he has bestowed upon this people and our United prayers ought to ascend to him that he would continue to bless our great Republic in time to come As he has blessed it in time past. Since the adjournment of the last Congress our a enjoyed an unusual degree of j health. The Earth has yielded her fruit3 abundantly and has bountifully rewarded the i a Husbandman. Our great Staples i have commanded High prices and up till with a in i Brief period our manufacturing Mineral and mechanical occupations have largely Par. Taken of the general Prosperity. We have possessed All the elements of material wealth in Rich abundance and yet notwithstanding All these advantages our country in its monetary interests is at the present moment in a deplorable condition. In the midst of unsurpassed plenty in All the productions of agriculture and m All the. Elements of National wealth we and our manufactures suspended our Public works retarded our private enterprises of different kinds abandoned and thousands of useful labourers thrown out of employment and reduced to want. The Revenue of the government which is chiefly derived from duties on imports from abroad has been greatly reduced whilst the appropriations made by Congress at its last session tor the current fiscal year Are very Large in amount. A under these circumstances a loan May be required before the close of your present Bession but this although deeply to be regretted would prove to be Only a slight misfortune when Cota pared with the suffering and distress prevailing among the people. With this the government cannot fail deeply to sympathize though it May be without the Power to extend Relief. It is on duty to inquire what has produced such unfortunate results Aud whether their recurrence can to prevented a All former revulsion the blame might have been fairly attributed to a variety of co operating causes but not so upon the. Present occasion. It is apparent that our existing misfortunes have pro needed solely from our extravagant and vicious system of paper currency and Bank credits exciting the people to wild speculations and gambling in stocks. These revulsion must continue to recur at successive intervals so Long As the amount of the paper currency and Bank Loans and discounts of the country shall he left to the discretion of fourteen Hundred irresponsible banking institutions which from the very Law of their nature will consult the interest of their stockholders rather than the Public welfare. The framers of the Constitution when they a gave to Congress the Power a to Coin Money and to regulate the value thereof a and prohibited the is lates from coming Money emitting Bills of credit or making anything but Gold and Silver com a tender m payment of debts supposed they had protected Tho people against the evils of an. Excessive and irredeemable paper currency. They Are not responsible for the existing anomaly that a government endowed with thesos Ereign attribute of comm Money and regulating the value thereof should have no Power to present others from driving this Coin out of tic country and filling up the channels of paper which does not represent Gold and Silver. It is one of the highest and most responsible duties of the government to insure to the people a hound circulating medium the amount of which bought to be adapted with the utmost possible Wisdom Aud skill to the wants of internal Trade Jed foreign exchanges if his be either great Foj Aboye or greatly below the proper Standard the marketable value of every Many a property is increased or diminished same proportion and injustice to individuals As Well As incalculable evils to the. Community Are the consequence. Unfortunately under the construction of the Federal Constitution which has now prevailed too Long to be changed this important and delicate duty has been Dis severed from the coining Power and virtually transferred to More than Lorieen Hundred state Banks acting independently of each other and regulating their paper issues almost exclusively by a regard to the present interest of their stockholders. Exer a sing the Sovereign Power of providing a paper currency instead of Coin for the country the first duty which these Banks owe to the Public. Is to keep m their vaults a sufficient amount of a Gold and Silver to insure the convertibility of their notes into Coin at All times and under All circumstances. No Hank ought Ever to be chartered without such restrictions on its business As to secure this result. All other restrictions Are comparatively Vam. This is the Only True Touchstone the Only efficient regulator of a paper currency the Only one which can guard the Public Gamst Over issues and Bank suspensions As a collateral and eventual Security it is doubtless Wise and in All cases ought to be required that Banks shall hold an amount of United states or state securities equal to their notes m circulation and pledged for their redemption. This however furnishes no adequate Security against Over issues. On the contrary it May be perverted to inflate the currency. Indeed it is possible by this convert All the debts of the United states and state governments into Bank notes without reference to the specie required to redeem them however valuable these securities May be in them Elvab they cannot be converted into Gold and Silver at the moment of pressure experience teaches in sufficient time to prevent Bank suspensions and the depreciation of Bank notes. In England which is to a considerable extent a , though vastly behind our own in this respect it was deemed advisable Anterior to the act of parliament of 1844, which wisely separated the Issue of notes from the banking department for the Bank of England always to keep on hand Gold and Silver equal to one third of its combined circulation and it deposits. If this proportion was no More than sufficient to seen re the convertibility of its notes with the whole of great Britain and to borne extent the continent of a Europe As a Field for its circulation rendering it almost impossible that a sudden and immediate ran to a dangerous amount should be made upon it the same proportion would certainly be insufficient under our banking a each of our fourteen Hundred Banks has but. A limited circumference for its circulation and in Tho course of a very few Days the depositors and note holders might demand from such a Bank a sufficient amount in specie to compel it to suspend even although it bad Coin in its vaults equal to one third of its immediate liabilities. And yet i am not aware with Tho exception of the Banks of Louisiana that any state Bank throughout the Union has been required by its charter to keep this or any proportion of Gold and Silver compared with the amount of its combined circulation and deposits. been the consequence in a recent report made by the Treasury department on the condition of the Banks throughout the different a states according to returns dated nearest to january 1857, the aggregate amount of actual specie in their $68,349,888, of their circulation $218,778,822, and of their deposits $236,351,842. Thus it appears that these Banks in the aggregate have considerably less than one Dollar in seven of Gold and Silver compared with their circulation and denotes. It was palpable therefore that the very first pressure must drive a them to suspension and deprive the people of a convertible currency with All its disastrous . It is truly wonderful that they i should have so Long continued to preserve their credit when a demand for the payment of one seventh of their immediate liabilities would have driven them into insolvency. And this is the condition of the Banks notwithstanding that four a Hundred millions of Gold from California have. Soonei Olmos Vosmera
