THE EMPERORS' CONFERENCE
The foreign papers inform us, what wo can
well believe, that the approaching conference
of the two Emperors, NAromort and ALEX
ANDER, at Stuttgardt, was an object of great
interest in Europe. Assuredly, these men,
with PALMERSTON to complete the trio, are the
leading personages of the European continent.
NAPOLEON, by his sagacity, prudence, tact, and
•knack of always taking advantage of circum
stances, has attained a commanding position
and acquired a mighty influence. ALEXANDER,
as monarch and master of a powerful empire,
with a great army and abundant resources to
aid, is also a man of power. PALMERSTON,
the virtual but removable ruler of England, has
a clear, shrewd intellect, and, at this moment,
is more powerful than any English premier has
been since the days of WILLIAM PlTT :—for
Fox had not the confidence of GEORGE ILL;
SPENCER PERCIVAL was merely an amiable,
third-rate lawyer; Lord LIVERPOOL %MS a po
litical non-entity ; CANNING was opposed by
the leaders of his own party as a parvenu and
political adventurer; Lord GODERICII was only
a atop-gap, for a few mouths; WELLINGTON
was unpopular with one party, because he
granted Catholic Emancipation, and with
the other because he refused Parliament
ary Reform ; Lord GREY was simply the
mouthpiece of the liberal party, until the
Reform bill was carried; Lord MELBOURNE was
a sort of political Micawber, constantly wait
ing " for something to turn up ;" PEEL, though
he carried free trade, could not maintain him
self in office afterwards ; Lord Jona RUSSELL,
a narrow-minded, stamnining aristocrat, who
'professed liberally and acted meanly, was only
backed up, first by PEEL, and then by PAL
MERSTON ; and Lord ABERDEEN, an old tory,
watt so weak in his own Cabinet that he was
actually compelled to declare war against
Russia, his own teoliugs being avowedly and
strongly on the other side. PALMERSTON
alone is master of the position, and equal
The recent conference, at the Osborne
Ilotise, when Louts NA VOL BON visited Queen
VICTORIA, seemed to us (and we said so) to
mean more than a resolution that England
should unite with France in a remonstrance to
the Porte on the Moldavian elections. Since
that conference, France has announced the
intention to co-operate,with ships and soldiers,
in the event of a regular war with Ohba.
There is an intimation in the French jour
nals that perhaps Louts NAPOLEON may be able
to effect a friendly meeting of the Queen of
England and the Emperor of Russia, at Paris,
before the winter season sets in. Russia, it is
well known, still cherishes very hostile feel
ings towards England, on account of the late
war, thinking that from the old and friendly
relations between the two countries, England
should not have taken the part she did.
The Grand Duke CONSTANTINE passed save
ral,days in Paris, as visiter of Loins NAPO
LEON, and ostentatiously paraded with him in
public, but only paid a flying and private visit
of a few hours to England, thus decidedly
marking the difference of sentiment towards
the two countries.
If Louis NAPOLEON succeed in bringing
VICTORIA and ALEXANDER together at Paris,
it will be a great feather in his cap. Every
thing seems to turn In favor of this child of
fortune. Out of this late Russian war he
emerged in friendship with Russia and Aus
tria, while England remains cool with both.
And now, such a re-union as is on the lapis
will show, most incontestably, the greatness of
the personal influence which Lours NAPOLEON
exercises among the family of European roy
alty into which he has adopted himself. The
good policy, too, of thus feeding the amour
propre of France, and serving the inhabitants
of Paris, must not be overlooked.
TO THE HOLDERS OF BANK BILLS.
The New York Evening Post begins to re.
mind us of its better days ; when, under the
memorable leadership of WaLten LEGGETT, it
was the great expounder of sound flnancia
truth, and the fearless opponent of the danger•
ous theories of the advocates of special login.
lation. We temporarily forget its abolitiot
proclivities in respect for its frankness ant
general orthodoxy in the present crisis. Ths
following extract from an editorial in the late
number of the Post is worth a sound bank bill
to every citizen. The advice is correct, ant
we spread it before our readers that they mai
profit by it :
A WORD TO THE HOLDERS OP BANK BILLEI.-11
a time like this great losses en bank bills are sal
mined to, especially by laborers and the man n.
shopkeepers, who, in a moment of alarm, havirg
little to lose rush to the broker's of with tiler
bills and sell at whatever discount ho pleases 13
charge. They take it for granted that what tie
broker says is all true; that be is a disinterestld
man, who makes It his business to watch the banks
for the purpose ofg_uarding the poor from loss, aid
seeing that they suffer as little as possible whin
bills are discredited. They do not think that itis
the interest of the broker to cry down bills for tie
sake of buying them up, and that men in this my
are making rapid fortunes out of the misfortune
of the Ignorant. Twenty times the money Is INIL
by the shop-keeper and laborer, by this very dis
count on blink-bills, that is lost by counterfeits,
The greater part of what the broker deducts goes
into his owe pocket. He gets very nearly, or quite,
par from the bank, and smiles at the credulity of
his victims. He is very sure not to tell the
shopkeeper that all the bills in the State of New
York tire umured by pledges equal to gold and sil
ver, in the hands of a public officer, and that it is
next to impossible for the holder to lose by them.
And 80 of the bank-notes of other States; most of
them aro secured by law, or so guarded that the
chances of ultimate loss to the holder aro not half
so great as are the chances of his being knocked
on the head by a falling brick while on his way to
the broker's. Even the notes of those banks that
have suspended will bo paid up within a short
time; and yet the broker kindly takes off ten,
twenty, or thirty cents from every dollar bill that
the laborer and shopkeeper bring to him.
Thompson's Counterfeit Detector of this date
(Oct. I) Bays: You who hold bank notes lay them
by and keep them out of the broker's shop, unless
Cu must Convert in order to pay your debts. You
lose more by getting shaved than you would by
broken banks, if you keep quiet "
This is sensible and true. Most of the banks that
have suspended have done no on grounds of gene
ral expediency, and not because of any run for
specie With few exceptions they will resume
payment when the panto is over. In the mean
,time they continue their business as before, re
ceiving interest on bills discounted, and making
the most of their assets.
The worst enemies of the bill-holder are the
handbill publishers, who employ boys to cry their
placards round nt two cents a piece. There are
certain , black-mail counterfeit detector publishers
also, whlde gain is in quoting bunk bills at a false
rates 6 t . tieso pirates keep small broker shops, with
bogus coin in the windows, to cheat the pesr man
out of half his wages, after frightening him out of
all hie wits.. They am assisted materially in their
names by the quotations of some respectable pa

(For Tho rreril
A I4ORKINGAIAN 9 S EXPERIENCE
. In prospect of tho meeting of the Legislature at
the call of the Governer of thin commonwealth, I
wish to present a few thoughts which appear to too
just under our present circumstances.
I have always supposed that the banks aro the
creatures of the sovereign people; that they exist
by their permission, and were chartered with a
view to tlieir benefit and convenience; that to
these banks, by their charters, were granted cer
tain privileges and advantages, upon certain
clearly-expressed and well-understood conditions.
By a clear departure from these well understood
and clearly-defined conditions, the banks have
placed themselves in that situation when their sus
pension of specie payments (it is asserted) is the
only means of safety from ruin to themselves and
the commercial public.
As a workingman I have suffered during
their expansion, for every article necessary to my
support has doubled in price within a few years,
and now that this sudden contraction has fallen
upon us, I with many others are out of work. I
look upon our balding sy,tern to bo the solo pro
curing eases (remote and proximate) of the whole
of our present distress. 1 will first state why I
think so, sad then suggest what, in toy judgment,
would remedy the present evil, and secure us from
the like calamity in the future. In the first place,
our banks aro conducted so as to fleece the indus
trious part of the population (from whom they have
received their ehorters) to the utmost extent.
Where Is that bank to be found that has not refused
paper offered for discount at the board, and dis
counted that saine paper iu private at usurious in
terest before the sun went down? It is also noto
rious that brokers can obtain loans on stocks, and
speculators in any article (but more especially in
provisions) can obtain accommodations to the
amount of hundreds of thousands, when the
notes of industrious, humble men aro unnoticed.
The bone and sinew of our country is thus dis
couraged; that moderate assistance which domes
tic trade requires is withheld—that assistance
which was stipulated for when the charters were
granted—and a ready hand is held out to those who
would acquire wealth on a large scale.
The directors of our banks, generally, aro not
large stockholders. The smallest possible stake is
bell by them, sufficient, in many cases, only to
enable them to say they are stockholders.
n o inducement with such porsons to bestow any
attendance on dismount days is the hope of obtain
ing discounts fur themselves or their friends;
beyond this they have no interest in watching the
operations of the institution so as to secure its
The irresponsible issues of our banks are also a
great evil. What is lost by the failure of banks to
redeem their issues I have no means of knowing,
but I feel sure it would, if known, prove a serious
sum. On whom does this loss usually fall
These notes are manufactured and given to
brokers to circulate, or are sent West in largo sums
to buy lands, cattle and produce, &c.
We have no means of knowing, nor can wo ascer
tain, the circulation of any bank. To whom aro
they accountable for the amount issued ? So long
as these notes aro considered good, end tho sus
picions of the outward world aro not aroused, all
appears well ; but on the bare appearance of a
run, as in the case of the Bank of Pennsylvania on
Friday week last, the doors are closed and guarded
by policemen, with the modest communication at•
Cached, that " The directors had resolved to sus•
pond specie payments." Now, are these banks the
servants, or aro they the masters, of that public
which gave them life ?
If our laws mean anything, the banks now should
be proceeding to wind up their affairs ; but instead of
this they claim to supersede the law, and to have this
suspension justified, if not commended. If this
should be done now, it may bo done at any future
time—may be repeated whenever it is required—
and the deliberate act which forfeits the Bank
charters on theiri suspension is in foot a nullity.
However that may bo treated, we have as a city
g ained the unenviable notoriety of being the first
place in the United States to suspend specie pay
ments in 1857.
The expansion of our bank issues bus begotten
and fostered all the wild speculation in western
There is something greatly defective in the in
ternal arrangements of our banks. Scarcely a week
passes in which we do not road of some bank offi
cer's infidelity in appropriating to his own use the
funds of the institution in which he ty employed,
and now that the pressure opens the apertures in
these hives of secrets, how their imprudent MU
agemont is displayed when we find a single indi
vidual owing a bank hundreds of thousands.
What would be thought of an individual who
would put one-fourth of his capital in the hands of
one man, and this for the purpose of speculating
in, and keeping up, the price of the articles of
necessity , It is by this process that the laboring
population suffer during the expansion.
This suspension of specie payments by our banks
is a deliberate violation of contract, and the clearly.
indicated penalty is the forfeiture of their char•
tors We are told that the Governor proposes to
legalise this suspension for a limited time. Perhaps
it Is the best antidote at hand; but the Legislature
has now an opportunity of extending the relief
sought for, with additional conditions, BO as to
avert a repetition of the present calamity.
And now for the remedies—which I would fain
hope the representatives of this suffering commu
nity will be faithful enough to their trust to de
mand, before they proceed to whitewash this
breach of law, and of good faith.
1. Give us, in all cases, ample security for all the
issues Si bank may make.

LETTER FROM NEW YORK STATE
0 1'4E00 CouNil% Spurr Farm, N
As Philadelphia is my native city, and I take a
pride in whatever concerns her best welfare and
interest, you may conclude quite naturally that
your new enterprise, the establishment of a first
class paper, which I sou meets with decided ap
proval, gives me no inconsiderable portion of grati
fication. I have long been of the opinion that the
partisan papers of my native city were not in
many respects equal to the demand; and I mai sure
that the man who would be bravo enough and
loyal enough to duty and patriotism, and deviate
from old landmarks of a peculiar and customary
stylus, and give no something even in polities de
cent, respectable and worthy, would he the moo to
win enlightened regard and high-toned patronage
Indeed, eo common has it been to see politleal
editors descending to the lowest scale of abuse,
hoping by such a course to gain notoriety for tact
and cunning, that wo e quite taken by surprise
when a man steps out in splendid relief from
the crowd, and wins our hearts and gains our
patronage by his decent speech and genteel be
havior. Therefore, I give you the right hand of
fellowship, and say that if Philadelphians do not
give you encouragement they do not deserve your
Theo words of mine will appear a little strange
to you, perhaps, when I unfold the fact that I am
not particularly in favor with the sentiments and
the instructions of the party to which you belong,
and of which you are ono of the best, and certain
ly one of the most enlightened supporters But I up
prebend this will make no difference to you lam
of the opinion, eir, that what we most particularly
need in this country is a fair and consistent enun
ciation of political doctrine by fair and consistent
men. We have had no lack of political papers.
and no decrease of political loaders, and one would
presume that the people of this country were tho
roughly educated In all the varieties of the school
politicos; but such is not the tact. I find that
oven with our party, (never mind what party that
is,) abuse, bitterness, and wholesale scandal
sometimes for argument and political instruction.
Of course, I take the papers. read the leaders, pa)
my subscriptions, and do all these things because I
want to see my side go ahead ; but I candidly con
fess that out of some half dozen political newspa
pers which I receive weekly, there is but one of
the right kind of behavior to suit me'
A gentleman of high standing, and whose ob
servation is singularly acute, expressed his opinion
to me ono day while conversing upon the subject of
political degeneracy, that in case American poll•
tics did not assume a better character, and give
evidence of more learning, dignified arguments,
and scholarly erilieism, the whole spices would
pass, as RIM now pa , sing, into the lowest pot
house for support and recognition. Why, is It not
a lamentable fact that political life and behavior
have so far degenerated that we do not inquire, for
a single moment, what are the claims of a candi
date. If wo want to know what is the state of
Ainerioan politics, we see the leaders, and seek
for political instruction in a billingsgate slims,
published under the very nose of sanctioned
authority. You rarely find a man of cultivated
taste, who cares to know anything of polities
You may presume that he has read Too
Years Ago," or "Illawatlia," or that splendid
little "ajraire" of Brownings, and you may
say for certain that he visits the "Art Union "
has a distinguished acquaintance with celebrated
artists, and "takes" whole stacks of magazines,
quarterlies, and is known—but only incognito—
as the author of that sweet little description iti
Pranans ; but to suppose him "hail fellow well
met" with the author of the "Outrages in Kan
eas," or with the author of the famous " resolu
tions" at Tammany, would bo bozo, dishonor
able—indeed, insufferable. Now, this is Poise
thing exceedingly strange, when we remember
that, at one time in the history of learning, it
TM deemed an acknowledged superiority in
that man who was versed in political and
governmental policies. Then it was a splen
did Thesis, full of dignified parts and counter
parts, and you found the advocates, whether radi
cal or conservative, of the highest polish, and the
most thorough educational training. And theo, if
wo remember our reading correctly, it was a mat
ter of depth, and went below the surface of com
mon minds, and founded its superiority upon the
cleanness and ripeness of the deepest intellects.
Then, eir, politics was victory to tbe man who
towered above all others with his gigantic WWI of
lemming, law, and duty to his country
But allow me to atop here. I did not intend to
give you a dissertation. I commenced with the
intention of opening a little doniestre correspond
ence for your journal. You will need such, and
from time to time I propose to send you whatever
I see about here that will prove of interest to your
readers. First, then, let mo refer to
The prices are downward, I see, in New York,
and this is a great disappointment to the farmers
here. Three weds. ago farmers could have told
their dairies in the eheese-rooms for 9 cenh per
pound ; but now there is no oFer made. There is
quite a large stock in the country, for few dairies
have "gone in," and farmers will hold on with
the expectation of a rise. As a general thing, tho
cheese will prove equal in manufacture to last
year. I have been visiting quite a number of farms,
and so for, in all the dairies L have seen, the cheese
runs uniform, and appears to be oat ng well.
You see, some farmers are too selfish. When
they aro offered a good fair price, they refuse to
sell, and many of them, I fear, have refused but
to learn a good lesson Lot them learn. Produce
has been high—cheese, with the rest—and it will
do them good to got six or seven cents fur a
year or two, and will give them patience, and
learn them nomothing of the spirit of depend.
once Farmers aro not 'independent. They de
pond upon the cities, and they ought to be con
tented sometimes with consistent prices ; how
ever, cheese must go up, as the present decrease in
price in but temporary, owing to a crisis which is
little time will remedy
The bops are mostly picked at this time, and the
yield is a full average one, and growers appear to
be decently satisfied. I have not heard of nay
sales as yet, but I presume that the prices will not
range above those of last year. The fact is, how
will nut pay at twelve cents per pound. Ido not
see that hop-growers are getting rich—those about
here are certainly not I made a calculation the
other day on the product of three acres, and, after
deducting all the expenses, and allowing twelve
cents a pound fur the hops, I did not leave a wide
margin for profits to come from. The prices of our
hops are regulated altogether by the foreign mar
ket, Your "lager boor" men may put down their
hope at about fifteen cents; they aro worth about
twelve here at the dry-houses.
There is a poor crop. Last year we bad from a patch
about ono hundred and twenty-fire bushels—the
same patch yielded this year about thirty bushels
There is a wide complaint among farmers. Look
out for scarcity and high prices this winter and
next spring. There are various reasons assigned
for this failure in the potato crop Farmers about
horn say that the wet spring was the cause. Ido
not pretend to say or know; but this much is true,
there will bo a groat scarcity
Tho corn is out of danger pretty much It is
now the 24th of September, and no have had no
frost, and most of the farmers have finished cut
ting up." Tho crop is about average, end farmers
aro satlsfiod. We do not raise corn about here to
sell—nro leave that part to our western brothers who
make a businoss of it. Oats are tiptop—a good
yield, well headed, and prime.
Our apples will boa failure. We depend a great
deal upon this crop. Quito a largo amount of your
dried apples come from this part of York State.
shall not have anything like a half crop, and
I hear the eamo complaint from, all parts of the
country. I saw a lot of scrubby pears going to mar
ket, and the farmer said he would get one dollar
a bushel for them. This pays well oven to carry a
road four miles to market.
However, Ali things considered, farmers should
bo satisfied. They must come in for a portion of
the present crisis. Lot us all have patience and
show a spirit of resignation • C. S. B

THE NEW YORK AND ERIE RAILROAD.
[Correspondence of The Pres..]
Now YORK, October 3, 1857.
MY DEAR SIR . Last night I attended the meet
ing of the stockholders of the Now York and Erie
Railroad, and hoard, of course, a full exposition cf
the affairs of the company. After the organization
and appointment of officers, Mr. Lathers, one of
the directors, gave a full description of the affairs
of the company, and demanded $2,000,000 to put
the road in a position for the business of the com
ing Sc a , un. Of the amount, from $250,000 to $500,-
000 was immediately required to keep the road
from protest, and the balance would be wanted to
complete the improvements now in the hands
of the contractors. Ile then wont into the
cauec , that produced the difficulty, and handled
with much severity the inattention of the
stockholders to their interest, and the want of
ability in the previous officers of the com
pany. Ile said the errors were not intentional
—were not the offspring of a speculative desire to
to enrich themselves—but for the sole purpose of
malting dividends beyond the condition of the
work. Ile said the Superintendent, who had the
entire control, desires to bring the expenses within
80 per cent. of the earnings, and consequently not
only lot the road and machinery run down, but he
quarreled with the employees, and the business
that was necessary to sustain it. Ile then went
into and explained the reason for employing a Pre
sident at 520.000 per annum, and ended with the
dead-heads and other abuses that crept into the
system—the whole giving much satisfaction to
Mr. Moran next took the stand, who, by tae by,
is an able and energetic man; he has all the re
quirements of youth, a sound and practical edu
cation, with all the pride and honesty of inten
tion for the position in which he is placed. But.
like all other men who build their importance
upon the success of his previous life, he lacks the
science and the prudence to realize his present
position and carry his plans to a successful issue.
His review of the administration of his prude
cesior, was, to sny the least, bad taste—and the
reformation in the runner and dead-bead sys
tem, was very much below the importance he
attached to the montane, and the abolition, ho will
find, will not produce to the company the advan
tages so eloquently established. Its institution
was financial, and it saved the company from
protest, as he showed, for the time being. By
the '• freedom of the road" to editors, the public
mind was stuffed with its importance, and by
extending •. the courtesy to lawyers, doctors,
preachers, tavern-keepers, bankers, and brokers"
—parenthetical phrases were prominent in every
speech, and of course, like tho saffron bag of
Bulwer, tit' (Will" in its excellence became a mat
of ells creed It (the road) was sustained by this
system, and therefore the bridge that carried us
in safety must not be condemned as a nuisance.
But as the " points" of the speech, under the
present condition of the public mind, were to the
purpose, and as the whole affair was the straw at
which the drowning men catch, it is but right we
should exercise the power that nature has given us
to prolong our existence The trouble on the road
is, first its location—next, its gauge—then its
grades, and, finally, the manner in which it is
built. These matters combined Cannot be over
come by the 'management, and if Mr. Moran
will direct his mind to the position he wilt
find that dead-heads, and runners are of bur
little importance. The first, be will discover,
does not secure the local advantages ho claims.
Besides the unsettled condition of the country,
there aro other roads competing for the trade that
will interfere with the charges, and, of course, cut
down the profits that are necessary to sustain it
The business in coal is a mistake. It cannot be
hauled up hill to pay, and therefore must not be
considered in an estimate for revenue. In the se
cond, the increased weight of the machinery, with
the additional expense for ballasting and timber,
still be found too lunch far profit; and in the grades,
if be will read or :testy Mr. Steele's report
on the subjcet, he still change his mind in re•
!alien to the ads ant.tges, and perhaps discover
that the dtffetence in favor of the Pennsylvania
railroads, is the tree ent.e of his trouble. In my
next I will give you the data S.
The Murderers of the Crew of the Albion
The telegraph has already informed us of the
arrival at Portland, Me , of the murderers of the
crew of the brig Albion Cooper. from Havana, and
the death of the boy who was the principal wit
ness against them. The Portland Advertiser has
the following particulars .
"The barque It. 11. Knight, Captain Lusemnb.
from Havana, arrived in our harbor September
30th, having on board two men, Peter Williams
and Abraham Cox, who perpetrated the horrid
butcheries on board the brig Albion Cooper. The
officers of the cutter, in their boat, went down and
took possession of the prisoners, and they were sub
sequently placed in the custody of the Deputy
United btatea Marshal Quimby, and immediately
lodged in jail. On the passage home, the boy
Fahey was attacked with the black vomit, of which
ho died, and was buried at sea on Saturday. Ilis
death, however, will not affect the case of the mur
derers, as his deposition had been taken in Havana,
before the U. S Consul.
The culprits freely confess the commission of the
atrocious deed, and relate with a shocking coolness
the most sickening details of the offence. A more
deliberate, unprovoked, and wicked murder was
never committed, and the fiends seem to have en
gaged in it front little other motive than delight in
human blood. All the sea-faring and comruerci.il
portion of our community are greatly exasperated
toward the wretches, and will rejoice to see the
extreme penalty of the law inflicted upon them.
They will have an examination before Judge Ware,
of the 11. S. District Court, in a few days.
A Havana correspondent gives the following
particulars of the tragedy on the brig:
"The brig Black Squall, Bryant, of Philadel
phia, arrived from that port 6th September, reports
whilst crossing the (treat Bahama Bank, on 2d
September, she saw and took on board a boat with
three men, who gave their names as Peter Wil
liams, (a Frenchman,) Abraham Cos, (a negro,) and
Thomas Fahey, (an Irishman,) who stated they had
been wrecked iii the brig Albion Cooper, of Port
land, and were the solo survivors. Shortly after
they were taken on board the black Squall, Fahey
went to Captain Bryant and stated that the Albion
Cooper had not been wrecked, but that Williams
and COX had murdered her Captain, Daniel B.
Humphrey, the chief and second mate, and oue
seaman, and thrown their bodies overWaid, then
set fire to the Albion Cooper, and left her in the
boat. This took place on the 2‘ith August, ult.
