A Porter paper asserts; that: " the citi
zetteof this Commonwealth give Governor
Ratner credit" for the shin-plaster oq stem!
jly this assertion is meant One of two
things, either, that Governor Biteer man
sfartureand issued all ,the shin-plasters
that ilifckl cr. the country from .Mdine to Plu
nder or that he caused them to bemanu
factured and issued directly orlindirectly.
Now, We assert, that neither r.r these. pro
positions can be true, though there may be
persons in the world iporant enough to
believe either of then,. Wi know :hat
the leaders of the Porter party disbelieve
, both themselves; but no matter fur that, if
they can only induce others! to believe
them 'l their ends will • be gained; their sys
tem of falsehood and imposition will sue
ceed in proportion to the nutnher of dupes.
Thermirculate this -calumny among per
sons who have paid no attention to the
causes whith have produced the shin-phis
ter system, in the hope that some of - the
*ignorant may behave,
though they knew
that the good sense of the majority will'
reject the calumny. If, however, Gov.
Rimer established the sltin-pluster system,
he most be admitted to have gone ahead
/of the-" Little Magician," for be commen
`feed operation@ in Mississippi, thence cros
oper to New York, thence to .Phila
delphia, thence to Baltimore, and so on
throughout the country, a i nd during all the
time remained at- Harrishurgi In klissis
tipple the banks first 'suspended specie
payments, and were followed by the' bunks
of other portions of the' 'west, where the
- specie circular bore hardest upon the pee
- ple. The banks of the city of NeW York
preceded those of Philadelphia, and . the
*last among the latter banks to agree to the
measure of suspension was the U. S Bank.
The shin-plaster system sprung from the
neentsity of hiving change supply the
Firmer medium suddenly
,withdrawn from
circulation by the suspension of specie
payments.. This @nonentity' was caused
by those measures of the General Govern
ment, which tended to withdmW thesitkie
of the country from its accustomed Phan
. pets, among the chief of which was the
specie circular! Now the above are un
deniable facts; and if an, haW can Gov..
Rimer be justly charged with creatine. a
shin-plaster currency? Listen to his sett.

from thafect, that they were acknowledged.
to he due, and that suits are now pending
for their recovery, that they still are due?
The reason why these suits were not pm
tied to before was, that it is only late
ly that David R. Porter has attempted to
hold property in his own name. His
friends have now proclaimed that he-is
worth $40,000. If he is worth this mo
ney, he can evade the payment of these
acknowledged debts, in but one legal way;
viz. by pleading the limitation law! This
it is believed he will do. How then can
any set of men say that he has discharged
all his honest debts? W here iir the evi

On Thursday, the 14th inst. the Sten . Oter
Luaßt, Capt. Dubois, left Charlestun for Baltimore.
with AbOilt 150 passengers, of ,whom about 50
were ladies.
• At' about It o'elnek on the satire night, while
off the North Carolina coast, say 30' miles from
land, weather moderate and night dark—the star
board boiler exploded, and the Vessel was lost;

We have . gathered the follotring fads from
the first mate. Mr. Hibbard, who had charge of
the boat at the time. Mr. Hitiberd states that at
10 o'clock at night he was called' to the eManiand
of the boacjtand that he wee pacing the premien
ade•deck in front of the steeraga house— r itrat he
found himself shortly after stood the man deck
lying between. the mast tad side the boatt.—that
upon the return of conaciousnesir, he had a con.
fused idea of having heard an explosion, ;some•
thing like that of gun powder, Immediately be

lie was induced, therefore, %arise and walk aft,
where he discovered that the boat midshins was
blown entirely to , pieces—that the head of the
starboilla was blown oat, and the top torn open
--that the limbers and plank on the stbrboarti
aide were forced ;wonder, and that the, boat
took in water 510 - ever she rolled in that direct:
tion. He became immediately aware ofthe bor
rows of their situation, and: the danger of letting
the passengers know that 'the boat was Sinking,
berme lowering the small boati. Ile ptoteeded

therefore to do this. Upton dropping e boat
he wee asked his object; and he re
plie that it
was to pass round the steamer to semen in her
condition. Before doing this, however he took
in a couple of. men. He ordered the other boats
to be. lowered, and two' were ehtirtly pat-int* the
water, but they leaked so-much in . consetpience
of the long exposnre to the sun, that one ior them

He had in the interim taken several (rem the
