Susquehanna County Bank.
We regret that an reit" of the magnitude of the
Susquehanna County Bank,,has become necpwary to
the welfare of the "Northern Democrat." It bad better
Pam to lean upon the principles ofthe democratic party
and staid by the interests of the people, though "evils"
as huge high Olympus" should threaten to come
upon them. We have yet to learn That a democratic
Journal should wink at any outrage upon the rights and
prosperity of community, or seek to bolster up a galvan
ized iemnant of chartered monopoly, or incorporated-
Jim:touring. (We dare not use a more expressive
word for fear of a gag.,s:t.) Banking institutions are
no part of the democratic creed—they have been arrayed
against democracy and the people from the earliest his
tory of our country, and their warfare has been unceas
ing since the memorable stand taken by Gen. Jackson
agtinst that monster iniqui y, the United States Bank.
Even when incorporated with the individual liability
principle they should be looked upon with distrust.
‘i The "Northern Democrat," publishes and endorses a
communication, evidently from an officer of the - bank,
which, while written in a vain of apparent candor, con
tains two or three misstatements, which we consider our
duty to answer.
The crirrespondent alludes to suits brought against the
bail of Mr. Kellum, and asserts "that Mr. Goodrich,
among the rest was made to respond in damages."—
"That not a word appeared in the Reporter derogatory
to the credit of the Bank, until' after those suits were
The first, that: Mr. G. was one of the sureties of Mr.
K. is 'blue, but that he ever responded to the suit of the
Susquehanna county Bank damage's is false. Oa
the country, he always considered their claim as 92tens•
ble and treated their propositions with contempt4: l And
the suits, if settled, have been without his cosspiration
in any manner.
The condition of the Dank was never known to Mr.
Goodrich (we speak for him as he is now on a bed of
sickness) until these suits were commenced. He was
then furnished 'with a full and complete history of the
abortion " from its start, authenticated from their books,
and which reveals in the most startling manner, the en
tire operations of that institution. Fully convinced, as
we could (rota the same convince the editor of the De-
mocrat, of the danger which community was in from
touching their notra, we have never since ceased from
what we considered our duty. Ihdike the Democrat,
we can see no •• necessity" in the "evil,' and if it were
located in our midst, regardless of the frowns of those
who make money from other's misfortunes, we would
hold its deformities up in their true light.
We again repeatibst we may have occasion to give
to the public a full history of the Susquehanna county
Bank, while under the management of the Company ;
and from it the public may sce who have drawn the mo.
ney from so many of their pockets. It is an old saying,
if a man cheat you once, shame on him ; Übe cheatyou
twice, shame on you! Will it not apply to Batiks!
Gen. Irrin , s Generosity.
- We find in the Huntingdon Globe, the following ex.

Iron-master and candidate for Covernor. Mr. I. it should

sere:lent& We ars sorry to See on act of charity paraded
for the purpose of making political capital, and from the
first we looked upon the announcement of Gen. Irvin's
benevolence with distrust. The facts now appear be.

"The above gross misrepresentation and barefaced

THE FRUITS OF TIIP. SYST EM .-A letter from
Europe. published in one of the journals, gives
a graphic description of European stock jobbing.
Amon other things. it says that the great stock
jobber ofParis. " Baron Rothschild." inhabits
a house of which the furniture cost $500,000;
that in the railroad speculations which rendered
Paris crazy not long ago, the English and Ger
man , speculators, or as we moreolitely call
them, " operators," emit! off $50.000,000 ;
that on Englishman, entering Par i with $250,
carried off $500,000 in six weeks. l It adds that
the wealth of the firm of Rothrichil is estimated
at $l6 000.000, though FOM 'eve that the
whole is credit, or " moon line," liable to be
disipated by any revolution among governments.
It then gives a graphicand ludicrous description
of " fashionable society," as led or constituted
by the stock jobbers of Europe, o hick shows
that their.frivolous follies and extravagant ex
penditures are equal.
While we behold all these "carryings on" in
European cities, by those who live sumptuous
ly without work, excepting the work of their
wits to defraud creative industry of its fruits,
we also behold the most abject poverty among
the mechanies. and starvation, literal famine,

THE TARIFF. --The correspondent of the
Baltimore Sun. says
The - opposition. at the commencement of
the late session of Congress, prophesied that
the tariff of 1846 would, at 'the utmost, yield
no; over $20.000.000 per annum, and in all
probability only. 816.000.000 ; and it . was for
this reason that Mr. Webster promised his
Massachusetts friends, and those be had made
over a dinner table in Philadelphia, he• wou'd
bring in a bill fu'r', abrogating the tariff of 1846,
and reestablishing that of 1842. Mr. Webster
done no such thing.
The fact is, the prophesies of the opposi
tion in regard to the tariff have been wholly
contradicted by the receipts of the various Cus
tomhouses in the Union. The tariff of 1816
exceeds in its consequences as a revenue

Fesup.—lt ,was recently stated the will of the
late Judge Marlin was recently declared nu'l
and void; but not, as has been stated, on account
of the blindness of the testator. The real
ground of the decision was that the testator bad
attempted a fraud upon State. In Louisiana
there is a probate taz of ten per cent. upon be
quests to foreigners. To evade this taz, Judge
Martin, whose penurious disposition looked
even beyond the grave, bequeathed all his
properly nominally to his brother, a resident in
New Orleans, hut with a secret understanding
that there should be an equal division between
all relatives, most of them being Frenchmen,
residing in France. Fur this attempt to escape
the probate taz the will was set aside. The
amount of the taz coming to the State will be it
is said,. about 830.000.
