In consequence of numerous letters received
by the last California. mail, we determined to
'publish an edition of Tar Plums, exclusiiely
for circulation in California, Oregon, Wash
ington Territory, and along the Pacific coast,
,and yesterday the first number of the Steamer
Puss was issued. This number was neces
sarily imperfect, owing to the short time al.:
- . lowed for its preparation; but still, we think
it folly equal in all its departments to any pa
per of a similar character sent froia the At
lan& States. Our whole edition, with the ex
ception of some twelve hundred copies ordered
by Mr. Somaves, our agent in San Fran
oisio, was exhausted yesterday long be-,
fore the closing of the mail, and we are
now fully convinced that the publication of
such a paper in Philadelphia must be eacceSs
fa'. The Stearner Plass will be issued regu
larly every fortnight hereafter, on the 4th and
19th of each month, the days previouti 'to the
sailing of-the steamer, endwill contain a com
plete summary , of nova np to the hour of going
to press. Tax Parse will be devoted prinCi
pally to Philadelphia and :Pennsylvania in.
lelligence ;' our object being' to ' promote •the
interests of our city and State on .the Pa
cific. This, we think, can be accomplished
by publishing a paper which will command a
ready sale in California, and which will bring
before the business and reading community, of
that quarter a semi-monthly compendium of
what is transpiring in this. •
The Steamer Pans will tie 'sold , at, our
counter, in strong wrappers, and stamped
ready for mailing, at five cents per copy.
Orders will be received in advance'.,

The New York Courier and Enquirer, of a
late date, recommends, as a desirable modifica
tion of the banking system, a provision that
61 no bills under five dollars be hunted for the
present, and none under twenty dollars after
January, 1859." , A siMilar'yolicy IS earnestly
advocated in many qMoersi e`,,A.l#ge propor
tion of those who ha r te nitiM atteutively 'stu
died, and who beats eMtapieficild, the banking
system, including many who are closely iden
tified with it and deeply interested in its ope
rations as stockholders, directors, or bank
officers, have become thoroughly satisfied that
bank notea, under twenty ,dollars, should not
be iiumfie The' eXperlineht of a paper cur
rency,--of-low. denominations, has proved a
failure. It has utterly broken down. There
is no necessity for it The National Govern
ment, by the operations of the mint, is abun
dantly able to ihrnisb all the currency
required for ordinary small business trans
actions. The increased demand for small
coins which a prohibition of small notes would
create couldbe readily supplied in a short time.
With our largely increased stack of Califor
nia gold, the vacuum that would be created by
doing away with notes of the denominations
of five and ten dollars could now be easily sup
plied, just as silver was readily found after the
destruction of shinplasters under one dollar,
.and as, in Pennsylvania, after prohibiting the
issue of notes under five dollars, the channels
of circulation were completely purged of un
sound and greasy small bills, and their place
supplied by an abundance of specie currency.
The whole banking system of the country
has, for the third time in fifty years, broken
down, and the fourteen or fifteen hundred
banks of the United States hive suspended
specie payments. The theory of our system
is, that banks are to' pay specie on demand,
and they are all chartered expressly on that
condition. Experience, however, has demon
strated that, in reality, they never can pay, if
they are caUcitspon to, do so. From the very
nature of their organization, and the character
of the liftainess:they transact, their ability to
meet their engagements, and to comply with
.the' requisitions of their charters, depends
solely,upon the degree of confidence or fer
bearinee with which they are able to inspire
the community.' At best, therefore, the sys
tem - is an unsafe. one. Many remedies have
been proposed, and there Is no doubt that
various new guards and checks 'may advan
tageously be engrafted upon the banking sys
tems of the 'different States. But it will be
impossible to'effect 'any very valuable reform,
unless the specie basis of the country, and of
the banks themselves, is enlarged.
In England' and in France small notes are
not tolerated at all. Their lowest denomina
tions of paper money are above twenty dollars.
Coin is the 'circulating medium for all ordi
nary small business transactions. In times, f
panic, therefore, there can be no run upon
their banking institutions, such as we see, in
this country, by thousands and tens of thou
sands of men holding notes of small denomi
nations. The precious metals, too, are con
stantly accumulating, just where they shohld
accumulate, in the hands of the masses of the
people'. Under the,tuinous small-note system
of Now York and New England, specie is com
pletely driven from the ordinary channels of cir
culation, and gold coins of this lower denomina
tions are almost chriositlei. Even Under the im
proved system of Pennsylvania, witch- prohi
bits notes under five dollars, but tolerates those
of that denomination and often dollars, the sup.
ply of specie among our people does not accum
ulate as rapidly as It would if no noted under
twenty wore issued. If we had no notes under
the latter denomination, oven if the banks did
usiend, the great body of the people would not
be subjected to any serious loss or incodveni
thee, for their ordinary currency would not be
vitiated or affected by suchinumension. Their
circulating medium would be established on a
sound and immutable basis-,--it would be found
ed on a cash, not on a credit system—they
would have in their hands money, not the mere
promises of banking Institutions (liable at any
moment to be broken) to pay them money:
• With the
,specie basis of the "countsyi in
creased by, suoh a measure as Unit suggested
above, and the banks themselves placed upon
a More Build fatidation than 'they have here
tofore possessed, we might look forward with
some degree of confidence for security in tie
future, and hope to avoid tho frightlhl dean
cial revulsion!' , which have so often spread
dismay and' havec throughout the land.
In these dap! of cent per cent, when every
gold dollar appears as unique as if, bathed of
being coined yesterday, it had been dug mit by
Mr. LA,TALan ii•oresome American Nineveh, it
may serve a good purpose to turn away front the
study of
,financial ruin, and refresh ourselves,
by, way of, y,ariety', with a good look at the de
cay of fanaticism. It we grieve to heart-bieak
ing over, the sufferings of thousands of honest
men, many, of theui 'wine of our nearest friiinds
—if we, mourn over the prospective poverty of
crowds of the sons 'of toil-L-we are certain to
realize a change for the better in'the Observa
,upon the overthrow of those merelii fac
tious' organizations 'which ere the product of
our days of prosperity, precisely as weeds and
noxious herbs are apt to start into a rank
growth; on the most" luxuriant soll4-and
which, we should add, are tolerated,' not
because they do any good, but because,
when there is so much that is healthy and
wholesome, we do not feel, or do not care for,
that which is the reverse. If we aro now sur
rounded with great dangers, we may be glad,
because all small differences have fled from our
midst.' If we have seen honest and energetic
merchants, mechanics, and manufacturers,
prOstrated by misfortunes not of their own
creation, we may congratulate ourselves that
there is but• one sentiment in 'the country—
that of heart-felt sympathy for their privations.
The contemptible feuds about slavery; the
shameful depreciations of our Southern follow
countrymen; the shrieks over bleeding Kan
sas; the clamor of makingthe North paratrionnt
to the South'; and all the foolish fanfaronade
of fanaticism, only yesterday; bow awkwardly
do they seem to us now ! How much like the
brass tinsel and false velvet, and pewter Jew
'dry, of the political stage, after the play, and
when the painted ball-room has been deserted.
The people aro looking to sterner virtues ; to
more hardy principles; to A more enduring
creed, in this their hour of woe, than the
miserable theories which' caught so many
thousands' in our days'of sunshine.

[From the Boston Traveller of yesterday.]
On Saturday afternoon, about 5 o'clock, 'three
men ' ''. who Were' apparently intoxicated, named
George J. Sutton, Henry L. Sutton , . and Sylvester
Bacon, stopped for a few momenta in a lard con
nected with the boarding home of a Mr. Fagan,
No. 44 High street. ;
Mr. John Donnovin went into the yard for the
purpose of remonstrating with them. According
to a statement made, it seems that a fight com
menced between the . parties and a man named
John Hilton joined with Dentiovan, and the
fight became general.l Then Henry L. Sutton drew
a - knife and inflicted a deep gash upon Donnovan's
head, three in the breast, and one on the.arm.
Sutton ran down' Pearl street, on to Liverpool
wharf, followed by. Hilton, who said that he in
tended to chastise the man who had stabbed his
cousin, and advanced towards Sutton with 4 pen
knife in his hand, when be (Sutton) made a plunge
•at him with the knife, the blade of which entered
the neck, and with a downward direction, pene
trated the lunge. He immediately fell, and was
conveyed to an apothecary's shop, where he died
in about twenty minutes.
•The murderer was stilt upon the wharf, and the
crowd undertook' to capture him, but as he was
armed with his bloody weapon, many were
afraid to epprosoh him, A teamster armed him
self and called upon Batton to surrender, which ho
refused to do r whereupon Mr. Jacob Todd ran up
behind the man and grasped him' about the waist,
and endeavored to disarm' him, when Sutton
stabbed Mr. Todd in the thigh, making a deep
flesh wound. He. was taken to his residence, in
West Concord street, and during the evening was
very feeble:
Sutton was finally overpowered, disarmed, and
taken into custody by surer Vino', of the Second
pollee station, and others, who immediately con
vaYed him to the Tombs.
Donnovan was taken from his boarding house
and conveyed to the Hospital, where he was at
tended by physielans, who expressed as their
opinion, that although the man's injuries ware of
a dangerous nature he , would probably recover.
On Saturday night tee continued to. improve, and
there was a fair prospect or his reeovery.

The President comes to town early every morn
ing from the Soldier's Home, 'and occupying a
room Alt the State Department, is busily engaged
with the Seoretary of State in preparation for the
meeting of Congress.
On the street there are rumors of removals
from the State Department, and appointments to
fill the vacancies; but I can find no foundation for
them, and refrain, therefore, from publishing the
names which are given.

I should not be surprised if the Secretary of the
Navy recommended to Congress the oonstruotion
hereafter of vessels of small draught Instead of
more of the huge steamers like the' Minnesota and
Niagara, which can only enter one or two ports in
the East India and China seas. Gun•boate of
small draught, you will remember, was a pet
measure of Thomas Jefferson.

landed all the machinery so unfortunately employed
in laying out the telegraphic cable from the Ni

prepared at this yard for the reception of the
cable, and I have every reason to believe, from
the manner the work is progressing, that we shall
commence discharging the cable on Monday next,

from Admiral Sir James H. Piamridge, proposing
to take the Niagara into Rayburn basin on the
17th last., for the purpose of landing the cable
and machinery.
The ship was hauled in, as proposed, but before
reaching her berth in the basin, a telegraphic de.
epatch from the Admiralty informed the admiral
superintendent that the telegraphic cable was not
to bo landed until further,:orileni. Bad it been
supposed that the cable was not to have been
landed before the vessel was taken into the ba

and not have subjected the officers and crew to the
many restraints and inconveniences rendered ne
cessary in a basin or dock yard. He had declined
the use of one of the hulks in the harbor intended
fur the officers and crews of vessels laying in the
basin. Ho demanded to know what conclusion the
board had reached. The secretary of the board
replied that they regretted the inconveniences un
der which Captain Hodson, and his of f icers and
crow labored, and that they had arranged to re
lieve him from his embarrassment immediately.

and on 26th day arrived atßoh-lie. After landing,
it rained for many days; took up our quarters et
the Ange Inn. Owing to the rains, we could not
eat about making inquiriis until the first day of
the fourth moon (24th April, 1857.) Gool-Kep-Ea-
Sin and Ong Clint went to village of Banca, leav
ing Jeh Mooy at Hoh-lie makting Inquiries, as
also giving notices of rewards for information.
On the same day, (1001-Kep-Ke-Bin and Ong-
Chut reached Banes, and put up at the house of
Chuang°, and proceeded to make inquiry. On the
2d day of the moon, (25th of April s ) they asked at
the kfandarin's office, and ascertained that in the
20th year of Jaen Kwang, 51840,) a vessel was lost
at Queroalas, with 130 foreigners, both black and
white, who were taken to Tai-wan, where the Man
darins, Tat and Oan, killed them all.
On the sth day, 28th April, they ascertained
that, during the 9th moon of the 22d year, (Decem
ber, 1842,) at the village of Bin-pan-le, a vessel
was wreaked, with 18 foreigners alive; two had
beau drowned at the wreak. One of the bodies was
washed ashore, and buried by the villagers. The
rich Chinese purchased the eighteen survivors
and delivered them to the Mandarins at Ifoh-lie
sailed Tan-Tai-Kun, who sent them to Tai-Wan,
whence they were sent to Foo-Choo to be forward
ed to Canton for transmiasiou to their country.
The anchor of this vessel may yet, be seen on the
beach. On the 9th day (2d May) proceeded to the
village of San Oayen, and took up their quarters
in the shop of Andre.
On the 16th (3d May) engaged six middlemen,
who went into the country. In the interior there
are Chinese who say a vessel may be lost on the
other aide of the island. On the 17th (10th May)
returned to Banes, and learned there', that about
five years ago, a small fishing boat with five Indians
was lost on thecoast,and that the men wore returned
to their country. On the 19th (12th May) engaged
middlemen again to go into the country to inquire
whether, eight years ago, any vessel was lost. On
the 22d (15th May) they returned and re-
plied that they could learn nothing of auy
such a loss. On the 24th (May 17th) they pro
ceeded to the north part of the district; neither
there could they learn any news. On the 7th of
the bile month (29th May) they returned to Amoy
by junk.
These statements are certified to be correct by
Mr Ilenvel, the Commodore's clerk.

in favor of the Democracy are good. The
Ohio Democrats have taken ground in favor of
the Independent Treasury for the preservation
of their State revenues, and this, with the di
visions in the opposition ranks, by the seces
sion of a large number of Americans into a
separate organization, added to the establish
ment of peace in Kansas, seems to have done
the work of Republicanism there. t ire :give

reported majorities, American and Democratic,
which lend us to believo that the majority of Judge
Brown over Mr. Hill will equal, if it does not ex

Tan MURPEREIt.—About 15 o'clock on Saturday
night, an unprovoked and diabolical murder was
perpetrated in Tenth avenue, near Twenty-first
street, by ono of a gang of three miscreants. John
Swenson and his wife were rettuniug home from
market at the hour above named, and while pass
ing through Tenth avenue, near Twenty-first street,
were conversing together when the gong referred
to made their appearance, and one of them,
pretending that he thought Swenson's remarks
were intended for him, naked him what he was
saying. Mr. S. replied that be had not spoken to
Tho fellow then struck Mr. Swenson and
knocked hint into the gutter. Mr. S arose and
started 'awards his assailant, but before reaching
th a ruffian, who was about eighteen years of
ago, turned and plunged the blade of a dirk into
his breast. Mr. S. fell mortally wounded; and
died a few moments afterward. As soon as the
fatal wound was inflicted, the three ruffians tied.
A lad named David Scott was the only person,
except those above named, who DIM the ,blow
struck. Dr. Robert Rd saw the ruffians running
away, and heard Mr. Swenson crying "murder.'
The policeman on duty in the neighborhood was
away, he having gone to the station-house with a
prisoner. The circumstance was, however, FOOD
made known at the sixteenth ward station-house,
and Inspector Carpenter despatched several men to
carry the body of deceased to his late residence,
and to search for the murderer. The officers did
as they were directed, but, though they scoured
the neighborhood for several hours, did not suc
ceed in effecting the arrest of the assassin. Mrs.
Swenson has partially described the dress of the
murderer, and it answers to that given by Scott.
Tho deceased was a native of Scotland, thirty-two
years of age. Iht was an industrious and temper

Relief i}letliag for Twentieth Ward.—
Pursunut to announcement, a meeting of the citi
zens of Twentieth ward was held in - the Hall,
northwest corner of Girard avenue and Spring
Garden street, last evening, at 7i o'clock.
The meeting was organized by calling Professor
WlLLiam 11. ALLEN to the chair. On taking his
seat, the chairman stated, in a very forcible and
feeling manner, the object for which they were as
sembled. The labor which they were called upon
to perform was one of humanity and Christian
duty, and should enlist the co-operation of all, ir
respective of name or sect; it surmounted all
party feeling, and he hoped, whatever might
be determined upon, that this would be borne in
mind, that our charities must not cease with a
thigle donation; the bounties of Heaven were be
ing constantly lavished upon no, artd it was hence
our ditty, in grateful response, to' continue our
charities while their aid was demanded. As the
sun shone unceasingly upon the world through the
day, so our charities must descend upon' the needy
—as the dews descend by night, must our boun
ties bless the suffering poor.
At the contusion of the chairman's remarks, Ed
ward Orate, Esq. in a neat speech, introduced the
following resolutions:
Resolved, That a committee of one from each
precinct in this ward be appointed by the Chair,
who shell be empowered to appoint a committee of
ten from each precinct in the ward, to be appo jilted
by this meeting, to organize an association in ac
cordance with the object of this meeting, and sp
pint soh officers, and frame such rules and regu
lations or by-laws, as, in their opinion, will best
subserve the charitable purposes of this association;
and that they have power to form a sub-committee
of their body, to confer with similar associations of
the other wards of this city upon any and all sub
jects connected with the objects of this meeting.
Resolved, That the committees of ten, of the
respective precincts, be empowered to rill any va
cancies that mayoccur by resignation or otherwise,
by appointment of other citizens of the precincts
in which ouch vacancies may occur.
Resolved, That the ladies of this ward, whose
natural impulses are always charitable, be invited
to aid this association in the promotion of its ob
jects, by the kindly supply of such articles of ne
cessity and comfort as wilt alleviate the sufferings
of the poor females and children of the ward.
Resolved, That the secretaries of this meeting
be requested to send notioes respectively to
the members of the committee of ten from
each precinct, appointed at this meeting, re
questing their punctual attendance at a meet
ing to be held in this room on Friday eve
ning, the 23d last., et 7i o'clock ; accompanying
Loch notice with the above resolutions. After the
resolutions were read and unanimously adopted,
the Chair appointed the following-named "gentle
men as the committee of ten : _
- • • ••
John M. Riley, Peter Hall, Samuel Scattergood,
Thomas Ryan, Henry Haines George
Augustus Lambert, Edward Haines,
'dimes H. Mil
lington, William Rattier.
At the suggestion of the Chair, the committee of
ten retired, for the purpose of appointing the sub
committees of ten from each precinct, arid in
few minutes returned with a list et a hundred
names, which were accepted by the, meeting.
There being no further business to transact, the
meeting adjourned at 9 o'clock, to meet at the call
of the committee.
Cadet., of Temperance.—The parade of the
Cadets of Temperance took place yesterday, and
was a very creditable affair. About nine o'clock
in the morning the line began to form on Spring
garden street near Broad, and such exeitement as
there prevailed we have seldom witnessed. The
line began to move at ten o'clock precisely, and
the following are the principal features of the pa
The Chief Marshal and assistaats on horseback,
led the van. Behind them was a brass band, fol
lowed by Good Samaritan Section, No. 1, of the
Cadets of Temperance. The members of the sec•
tion were attired in white shirts, with fanciful
rashes, dark pants, and black cape, with the name
of their organization placed in the Loot. Some of
them had belts around their waists, on the front of
which was also printed the name of the Good Sa
maritan, and some had caps of tic• or. pewter
suspended to the belts aforesaid, as emblematical
of the cause of cold water. A majority of them
were very youthful in appearance. The aeetlon
displayed a magnificent banner of blank velvet,
an incredible number of wreaths, small and large
slugs and fanciful decorations. Some were Imbibed
as sailors. William Penn had a representative,
and there were some half dozen Mohican Indians.
One of the banners of the organization contained
a beautiful painting of the deed of the Good Sa
Friendship Section, No. 8, came next in order.
Their banner was draped in bleak, in mourning.
Tho members were attired as those of the former
Germantown Section, No. 1, displayed some very
small boys, who, however, were sheltered under
very handsome banners. Axemen were in this

Have ever seen. A portion of them wore attired
as sailors, and exhibited their patriotism and de
votion to the water cause (sailors being semi
aquatic) by carrying American flags A peculiar
ornament was in the form of a bell made of artfifi
dal flowers, and suspended from a meta of the
~roe material.
Elm Tree Section, No. 27, with their deooratioils,
were but a fae•simile of those that had preo4ed
Manayunk Seaton, No. 40, with a hassdnwought
up the rear. The procession moved over the route
which we have already published.
Pennsylvania Colosizalitos Society.—W e gave
yesterday a list of the recently-elected officers of
this society. We learn that the past year has been
a memorable one in the history of the AmeriCan
Colonisation Society. The superior ship ~‘ Miry
Caroline Stevens," 713 tens burden, built mainly
by the munificent gift of $36,000 friars Mr. John
Stevens, has made two voyages to the African
lieptibliol with 217 passengers on the first trip,
and 222 on the second. These constitute the
total emigration for the past year-439 persons.
The ship is now at Baltimore, preparing to Sail
again on the Ist proximo. The greatly-exagge
rated report of a famine or scarcity in Liberia has
caused quite a number to postpone their intention
of going at this lime, and perhaps forever.
Health an 4 prosperity have prevailed through
out Liberia. The State of Cape Palmas has been
formally united with the Republic, thus making
the extent of the coast line of the Liberia Com
monwealth as far as from Portsmouth, N. 11 .; to
Norfolk, Va., the territory containing about 23,400
Einar° miles. The new towns of Robertsport, at
Grand Cape Mount, on the seaboard, and Carr
burg, about thirty miles hick on the high lands of
the interior, have preyed very eligible and salu
brious points for settlers, so much so that but few
cases of acclimating fever have occurred among
their inhabitants. The churches have generally
been visited with revivals of religion. The native
tribes are becoming more and more subject to the
1 twe, and aoeustomed to the manners and habits
of civilized life. ' The increase of Liberia is gra
dual but sure, modest but firm, her expectations
large, and her achievements unprecedented in the
history of that race. These blots, which we have
learned from the usual annual statement of the
board of managers, a concise, a carefully prepared
document will be found of general and encoura
ging interest to the friends of the Afrioan Coloni
sation cause
Police Ilems.—Yesterday morning, about
three o'clock, a shabbily•dreesed man, who was
much intoxicated, was arrested at Thirteenth and
Christian streets,
on suspicion of having stolen a
new coat, which he bad in his possession. The
suspected individual was taken to the station
house and searched, when eight hundred and five
dollars in gold were found in his pockets, together
with some bank notes and valuable papers. It was
, übsequontly ascertained that the stranger was
from Memphis, Tennessee, and that the property
found about him was his own. The indiscreet
stra Igor may congratulate himself upon his arrest,
as it was the moans of saving his money, and pre
venting him from getting into the clutches of
those who are ever on the alert for such victims.
A. colored girl, named Harriet Ringland, who
lived in Lombard street, between Sixth and Sev

-ixty-five dollars'worth of clothing belonging to
other parties, The polleswere informs!' of the rob

A hearing in the case of the persons charged
with maintaining a panel establishment, in Green
street, took place yesterday afternoon, beDire Al
derman Enett, at the central pollee station. • After
n full investigation all the parties were committed
to answer at court. The silver stolen from the re
sidence of the Rev. John Chambers, an account of
which we gave yesterday, was recovered in their
possession. The arrest was a most important one,
and reflects muelmfredit upon the detective qualifi
cations of High Constables Russell and Trefts, who
effected it.
Yesterday, Henry Russell, Franklin Drake, and
Isaac Shinn, election officers of the seventh pre
cinct of the Twelfth ward, were before Alderman
Clark charged with a misdemeanor in office in re•

at court.
Religious Intelligence.—The Rev. J. K.
Conrad has accepted a call to the rectorship of All
Sainte' Church, Philadelphia. This
_parish was
formerly under the charge of Rev. H.. E. Montgo
mery, now of New York.
The Sodality of St. John's Church, Thirteenth
street, below Market, participated in a celebration
on Sunday evening. The church was filled to its
utmostespacity, and the exercises were of an
posing character.
The committee which has been engaged, for se
veral years past, in preparing a new Liturgy for
the German Reformed Chinch, is now holding its
final sessionsin the old Consistory Room of the
First German Reformed Church of this city. In
this room, and around the very table now need by
this committee, some of the earliest members of the
church were acoustomed to meet, pray, and con
sult together many years ego. The committee has
nearly completed its work, and exts to place all
the material of it in the publisher's pec hands before
closing its present sessions. The new Liturgy, it is
supposed, will make a book of about four hundred
pages, of which three hundred pages are already
stereotyped, and will vrovide forms for all the
usual services of the Christian Church.
The Old Cent.—A large quantity of this
coin still remains in circulation in our city. When
the new cent was issued we welcomed it, not so
mach for its abstract attractiveness as for the
pleasing contrast it presented to the then current
copper. We then fancied that the imParedded
cent would follow in the wake of flps, levies, and
pistareens, but it appears we were doomed 'to dis
appointment. The old cent is &despicable wit , of

The week opens heavily. The fear that the
banks are not going to sat liberally, and that they
are trying to deceive each other and_ the public,
creates an uneasiness and depression which no
promises can dispel. Business at the note-broken
is very dull. Rates are perhaps a shade easier,
but scarcely anything doing.
The gloom of despair site on commercial men.
They have heavy liabilities coming due, without
a hope of getting relief from the banks, and
money not to ho had elsewhere, except at
a sacrifice tantamount to failure. I can sae
no signs of the buoyant feeling alluded to by some
of the daily papers'. I can see a great-deal of
apathy, but no disposition to "to make the best of

worst. There was a meeting of the Clearing horse
