reutivls a rci aware that thebill . which
ytl:ropi:trted by Mr. Hunter; chairman nri
ka 6 :tommittee of Finance, roduoing the
:4811,?unt. of bullion in the silver coin less
ilkftt ono dollar fins passed the Senate.:=-
The exportation of silver, and the
quent scarcity of tho smaller coins,' called
fot some ofibrt to remedy a great inconve-
Wetted in every-day 'transactions; and the
* . batol . las adopted that of reducing their
letuat value below their nominal value, so
lhat . they shall constitute a legal tender for
a larger amount than they represent as
articles of - eiport or as a medium for for.
o .. 4iT ar payments.
When the public attention was first call
ed to the fact that silver was being export
vd-in considerable quantities, the whip
presses charged that it was owing entirely
to the.operations of the tstritrof 1840, al
thOugh they were unable to show by their
protective theory wf:y gold was not as ea
rly sought after for foreign remittances.
We exposed at tho time the groundlessness
rof tie) , complaints against the revenue laws,
and , ekplained the cause of the phenomena
they were said to have produced. Con
gress had fixed the relative value of the
two metals. The law said that one
ounce of gold should be worth thirteen
ounces of silver, and in that proportion
c.Oll should bo a legal tender. That pro
'Portion 'was in accordance with the rela
tive value of those two metals when the
law was passed, and of course there was
nb 'inducement to export the one rather
rhadthe other. This state bf things con
tinued until the discovery of gold in Cali
folla, and the vast addition from that
quarter to the amount of gold bullion.—
The relation between the supply of and
demand for gold which formerly existed
was destroyed by the, greatly increased
supply-, and, asa natural consequence, the
value of silver, as compared with gold, be
came greater. One ounce of gold was no
longer worth thirteen ounces of silver, be.
cause it had become more plentiful. But
the statute remained unaltered, and conic
in conflict with the laws which regulate
commerce, which made silver more val
uable than the act of Congress allowed it
to be.' The consequence was, that as soon
as a specie export was made necessary by
importations from California, merchants
found it to be to their interest to purchase
silver with gold, and send it to thosocoun
tries in which it would be received at its
full value. By this process the supply of
Over coin became so limited that gold dol
lars bore a premium at the same time that
silver did-,-qt, result which was aided by
the tiretithstance that the mint furnished an
Inadequate supply of those 'pieces compar
ed with the supply Of forger coin,

gold and silver in the same proportion,
then there would have been no greater in
ch,lionient to export the one than the other,
tied our smallercoins would not have been

Cie °spoil. The United States is now the
oetit specie-producing country, as it is the
Oat cotton producing country,;
,and there
in:The'same reason for exporting the one
that'there is for exporting the other. But
was not' our purpose to explain the cans
t!s'et 'the -exportation of specie from the
Ilitifed States : it was to set forth tho rea
sena for that scarcity of silver coin which
hits . produced such inconvenience as to
call for the action of Congress. The bill

Ot law. This will be most gratifying news
to the whole northern section of our State,
as it will open up a region rich in mineral
resources, that has heretofore been shut
out from a market. The policy of com
pleting this improvement at the earliest
_practicable day has long been manifest,
and whenever the Whigs were before the '
people seeking their suffrages, they advo
cate this measure; but most strange to
say, when this bill came upit was opposed
eat every stage by the Whig leaders in the
Legislature, and every effort was made to
defent it. Through the active instrumen
tality, however, of its numerous Demo
cractio friends, and the, effective appeal of
Gov. Bigler in its behalf, it was carried
triumphantly through both branches of the

have labored to promote its interest, even
those of sacred truth, by the agency of the
enemy of all truth. Satan is a liar and the
father of lies. Why do not novelists con-,
suit St. Paul upon the propriety of their
project, before they dare to place unhal

They would expect to hear him say in the
language of withering rebuke—"shall we
sin that grace may abound God forbid,"

ature will probably say, "but when the
novelist, romancer, prize-tale writer, &c.,
improve the taste, and raise the moral tone
of the world, by painting it with those
pleasing attributes which the wicked are
unwilling to allow it, then I assert that
fiction accomplishes tho noblest work of
truth itself." BUt hero is taken for granted

Yet this is not the point at issue, and hence,
we still maintain that the point we have
assumed is tenable, if truth is more power.

tales &c., must be read. The novel is their
companion by day and by night they think
of but very little else. How deplorable is
it to see heads of families (and them pro
fessing Christianity too,) set up for half a
night, reading fiction, poisoning the minds
and morals of their children. 'F OF L.
BURIED ALIVE.—Pliny mentions the
case of a young man of high rank, who
having been dead some time, as it was
thought, Was placed upon the funeral pile.
The heat of the flame revived him but he
perished before his friends could rescue
him. The great anatomist Vesalius had
the unspeakable misfortune to commence
the dissection of a living body apparently
dead. Less unhappy was the fate of Abby
Prevost, who fell apopleptiC; but recovered
his consciousness—too late—under the
scalpel. Preparations were made to em
balm the body of Cardinal Samaglia. The
operator had scarcely penetrated into the
chest when the heart was seen to beat.—
Returning partially to his sences, he had
sufficient strength to put away the knife ;
but the lung was mortally wounded. In
on© of our journals is recorded the strange
ly interesting case of Rev. Mr. Ten
nant, of New Jersey, who lay three days
in his shroud, and was saved from inter
ment almost by a miracle. •

census returns. The Baltimore Ameri
can alluding to the increase, says :
Leaving out of the account the additions
which are made every year in the aggre
gate of our population by emigrants from
Europe, the natural increase of our own
people may afford the basis of an estimate
which could not be applied to any other
country. We arc bound to bo the most
populous and the most powerful of living
nations. This is our destiny, and it is our
responsibility also. Kossuth has made his
mistake only in point of time. We arc
a Power on earth, and such a Power that
its presence must have significance. We
cannot abnegate our being; but it is due
to our dignity that we raise not a hand ex
cept to control, and that et once. No
empty vaporing, no bravado, for this Am
erican people. We hold our own against
the world, and we will do it,corio what may.'
