These two Stites of this Union, which may
be called hard-money States, teach us most
impressive lessens. Situated at the two ex
tremes of the country, and dependent for their
prosperityruion different causes, the trial . in
'eitch:of a hard-Money basis for all their State
aid local transactions, and their refhsal to en
courage the issue of hank paper, have placed
them wholly above want, and in a large degree
protected them from the prevailing bank
iti2tcy. California, at last acdounts; was
looking , forward to a more certain and
prosperous future than the best anticipa
tions could have predicted one year ago. &me
of the leading.operators of the State may go,
doWn in the crash; but the people will be
protected, because the circulating medium is
sold and silver, and bank notes excluded by
those quarantine laws in finance, which are
never rigidly enforced without producing the
bed remits., The case of Arkansas is even
more strikingly in proof of the enormous
advantage of a hard-money practice, in the
miyment ,of labor and of taxes of all kinds,
thereby promoting the good of the whiffe.
The condition ,of Arkansas .is thus stated
by an ,Arkansas paper: "$200,000 in gold
and silver in the treasury, and the State not
one cent in debt on her own account! By
the meeting of the next Legislature, this sum
will be nearly doubled. Alas! what wreck and

Worse' and worse. Within the last three years:
over One million and a half' of the debt in

paid, off,,and this; too, without taking one

Under the circumstances, the mercantile in

action would scarcely take place.

The approaching session of Congress will bo ex

be that new combinationiand developments of par

I do not believe that Governor WALKER will be
as bitterly assailed by the south as hie opponents
anticipate. The course of the St. Louis Repub
can, which supports him for his rejection of the
frauds in Kansas, and the moderate and conservative
example of the Richmond Enquirer and Exami
ner, aro indications that do not promise a unani

JOHNSON, of Arkansas, Mr. DAyARD, of, Delaware,

ly,) vrill not be ready to follow any man's lead
against Governor WALKER, simply because the
Governor refused to allow a set of desperadoes to
cheat at an °lotion in Kansas. The two new (ex
pected) Senators from Minnesota, Meesre Rtes: and
.BIIIELDS, will no doubt speedily follow the se
coptabee of the State Constitution recently adopt
ed by the people of the Territory. This makes the
account stand in the Senate fifteen slave to seven
teen free States; and if Kansa/ and Oregon should
be admitted during the session, the result will be
Aileen to nineteen.
The idie that Oregon will beieme a Slave 'State .
is an absurdity, although it is reported that Gen.
Jon LANE is in favor of incorporating a slave
provision in the Constitution of the nets' Slate.
If this result should follow the efforts of parties,
my prediction is, that in a very few years slavery
will be forever prohibited in Oregon. You will
perceive that Judge DOUGLAS, in his spoil in
Chicago, makes ,no allusion to the propriety of
submitting the question of the Constitution of
Kansas to the people of that Territory, but eon
tents himself with generalizing. I have no doubt,
notwithstanding this, the Chicago Times speaks
his sentiments in favor of giving the whole ques
tion of slavery in Kansas and their whole con
stitution to the people of that Territory.

ANOTHER ATROCIOUS MURDER AT
Groat oimiteruont was plotted in North William
street last night by the murder about half-past ten
o'clock of an Italian named Francis Vincent,
dealer in winos and liquors, in his store, No. 15
North William street. Mr. Vincent was a re
spootablo citizen, about fifty years old.
lie habitually carried about him large sums of
money, which ho took no pains to conceal, and
this was doubtless what cost him his life.
Mr. William Hilton, an old gentleman, passed
the evening at his place, and 'is the only witness
of the murder. His testimony at the coroner's in
quest, subjoined, contains all that is known of the
circumstances. The officers, on searehing, found
that Vincent had been robbed. A largo roll of
bills remained In one of his pockets, but his watch
and chain were gone. These were subsequently
found in the street.
No clue to the murderers remained, but the po
llee during the night and this morning Made three
arrests on suspicion. Tho parties arrested WO An
tonia and Joseph White, alias Bianco, Italian
barbers, found at No. 1I) Vandawater street, to
which place they removed about three o'clock last
night, and Ajiguel do liesona, alias de Lorenzo, a
tall swarthy Italian, who was found at No. 5 of
the 8111110 street.
These parties hail liven suspooted of an attempt
to commit a similar murder at 139 Pearl street, a
week ago last Monday night.
Coroner Cannery this morning ompannelled a
jury at theliouso where the murdar was committed,
and proceeded to investigato the ease,

thin, wearing a moustache, of very dark com
plexion, something like negro blood.
I took eon glass, and refused to take another ; a
conversation in Spanish, apparently friendly, fol
lowed, and deceased drank several glasses with
them ; two sat au Vincent's right hand and two on
his left While talking, ore of them struck at
Vincent. and Ile fell over ; it was the tall, dark man;
could not see whether he had anything in his
hand, it was dono so suddenly ; it was almost ns
quick as a flush of powder; then in a motnent all
four sprang upon their foot as if it had been pre
meditated among them; and the throe who first
'came in rushed upon Vincent; then the table and
all on it fell over ; 1 sprang to my foot, and the
man who came last, and sat next to me, immediately
attacked me; I rushed to the door, but could not
open it, though it was not locked ; some one must
have been outside holding it; the man followed,
and struck me on the head with some instrument;
it might havo been a bottle or decanter; at that
moment the door was opened from the outside, and
they all rushed out together; I followed them out,
and saw Mr. Mark Cohen, private watchman, a
little below, towards Frankfort street, and told
him the noon had knocked Vincent down ; Mr.
Cohen, private watchman, and I went to Vincent's
house and found deceased on the floor dead ; they

commenced counting it; I think I recognised a

The Coroner asked if he recognised White.

White—No, sine, sir. I was not there at all.

The following is the proclamation referred to by
Brigham Young :
" PROCLAMATION BY VIE GOVERNOR
" CITIZENS or Urea—We are invaded by a hos
tile force, who are evidently assailing us to worn
plish our overthrow and destruction. For the
last twenty-tive years, we have trusted offieiabi of
the Government, from constables and jasticei to
judges, governors, and presidents, only to be
scorned, held in derision, insulted, and betrayed.
Our houses have been plundered and then burned,
our fields laid waste. out:principal men butchered
while under the pledged faith of the Government
for their safety, and our families driven from
their homes to fled that shelter in the barren
wilderness, and that protection among hostile
savages, which were denied them in the boasted
abodes of Christianity and civilisation.
"The:Constitution of our OKILIECOII country guaran
ties unto us all that we do now or have ever claim
ed. If the constitutional rights which pertain unto
us as American citizens were extended to Utah
according to the spirit and meaning thereof, and
fairly and impartially administered, it is all that
we could ask—all that we have ever asked.
"Our opponents have availed themselves of pre
judice existing against us, because of our religious
faith, to send out a formidable host to accomplish
our destniotioh. We barbital] no priiilege nor
opportunity of defending ourselves from the false,
foul, and unjust aspersions against us befera the
nation. The Government haj not condescended to
cause an investigating committee or other persons
to be sent to inquire into and ascertain the truth,
as Is customary in such cases. We know those as
persions to be false ; but that avails us nothing.
We are condemned unheard, and forced to an issue
with an armed mercenary mob, which has been
sent against nil at the instigation of anonymous
letter-writers, ashamed to father the base,slander-
MIS falsehoods which they have given to the pub
lio—of corrupt officials, who have brought false
accusations against sis to screen themselves in their

preservation, and stand in our own defence—a
right guarantied unto us by the genius of the in
statutions of our country, and upon which the
Government is based. Our duty to ourselves, to
our families, requires us not to tamely submit to
be driven and slain without an attempt to preserve
ourselves. Our duty to our country, our holy re.
ligion, our God, to freedom and liberty, requires
that we should not quietly stand still and see those
fetters forging around no which are calculated to
enslave and bring us In subjection to an unlawful
military despotism, such as can only emanate, in a

tyranny, and oppression.

Among the documents is a letter from Col. John
son, dated from the camp, on the three wings of
the Sweet Water, addressed to Adjutant-General
McDowell, Now York, in whioh he confirms the
burning of the contractor's trains by the Mormons.
He says the Governor's escort is four days' march
behind him, with two companies of dragoons, Ile
knows no reason why Col. Alexander !tumid at

from the fear that the Mormons have burned the
grass op the shorter route. He adds: "If I could
communicate with Col. Alexander I would direct
him to take up a good position for the winter at
Ham's Fork. The road is besot between this and

doubtful whether I shall be able to commtinioate

THE MONEY MARKET.
PUILLDKLPHIA, NOTelilber ig, 1857
The news from England by the Niagara, - at
Halifax, reached the board of brans while in
session, and produced a decline in the snots, which
were before selling quite spiritedly. The fluctua
tions in prices will be beat shown by the report of
sales. The news; however, is not of a character
to take any oae by surprise.
Nothing was more natural than that, after the
excitement of the first news of the victory at
Delhi had somewhat passed of, the English
financiers should turn their attention more par
ticularly to the news from America, and to the re
sults it was likely to produce in their midst. And
`the first of these results was most likely to be a
further advance in the rate of discount by the
Bank of England, as a still more effectual cheek
upon opeoie shipments, and that, under the opera
tion of this advance, consols should decline. Tin
greatest wonder of the reflecting, during all, the
late excitement in the moneyed world, has been
the high prices ruling for consols.
The news,ftherefore, that the bank has raised
the rate Of discount to ninalter tient , •that eels*
have declined, and that lower price' are ruling for
American staples, is only what might marenaifly
hive been looked for, and partakes of the character
of the intelligence that may be expected by the
arrivals from England for some days,to ems.
When the accounts of the favorable tam in finan
cial matters here are receivedin England, and the
shipments of gold for the ordinary purposes of trade
give place to the customary operations of exclusege,
the rates of discount in England will fall as rapidly
as they have risen and we look for a speedy
return of bedews activity between the twoenen
tries and of prosperous and busy timer. • '
