The news from EuropeAfthe Niagara is
unimportant, except what relates to England.
Tho advance, by the Bank of England, of
their charge for discount, from 8 per cent to
what the Times calls " the unprecedented rate
of 9 per cent.," had been anticipated, in some
quarters, (from the demand for money ' ) to
have been 9 per cent, for Short, 90 days'
and as high as 10 per cent. for bills of longer
date. The last bank return, made up to the
`week ending Wednesday, November 4, showed
that,:the amount of coin and.. bullion in the
bank was £8,497,780, being only £185,089
.undar the amount which the bank held in the
paulc'week of October, 1847 . . ' The our sac
dessive elevations, of the rate of discount since
the first week in: October, are , justified by the
fact that, since September 26 to November 5,
The ,beak had parted with coin and bullion
amounting to £2,778,808. .

for the benefit of the 'distressed working biasses.
Davenfart had what really was a benefit, at
the Aroh Street Theatre, last night. For the first
time on any stage (we believe); he played the elm
'miter pf Rie/o/iezi-,—Plaired it' nobly, we under
piund, for we were oomPelled to forego the gratifi
cation of witnessing it, and second-hand,
on this ooeseion. -
Aproios s of Mr. Davenpert'S benefit at the Arch
Street Theatre last night, (Which was a bumper, its
he well deserved that it should be,) we have to
notice a series of photographic portraits of this
popular and admirable artist; just executed by Mr.
W. L. demon, 702 Chestnut street. Three of these
are character-portraits. The first represents him
as Othello, the part its which, oh his return from
many years' flamenco in England, he made his most
brilliant re-appeirance at the roadway Theatre,
Neverork. ladependentof thereerelikoness, which
is excellent, the dress, pose, and whole character of
the picture is beautiful. The upraised hand, just as
the words are about to issue from the lips, is artist!.
cal, in itsforeshortening, to an eminent degree. An
other is Hamlet, "The glass of fashion and the
mould of form," with a hook in his hand, just, turning
from its perusal, and about to speak. In this, as
in the' other, the personal likeness is preserved,
and the costume and position are very pictorial.
&third, shows Mr. Davenport as' -the " crook
beaked Gloster," sword In hand, aver ready for at
tack or defense, listening in a moody manner, and
evidently exhibiting in his looks the habitual dis
trust of a suspicious nature, and a peculiarly
perilous greatness, guiltily obtained. Lastly,
We have "Neil Davenport," as his friends
love to call him, in familiar and friendly inter
course, in his own character—his arm leaning on a
table, and his hand supporting his head. Tho re
semblance is wonderfully true, of course, for when
has Gannon failed in that ; but the expression is
line, almost beyond description. The shrewd, sub
tle, but not caustic, mind, is finely expressed in that
countenance, with a "cast of thought" character
'alio of the man who, good actor though he be, be
lieves that, in his profession, there ever is occasion
for continued study ; that, as Alps over Alps of ex
cellence are traversed, there still remains a yet
loftier summit to be reached. '
More specimens of Mr. Davenport, In character.
are to be seen at the artist's door, (corner of Se
venth street.) These four Riohelieus are admira

manager We have more than once had 000/01013
to refer to Mr. Scott as an illustration of our idea
what a man should he, to whom the direction and
control of the active operations of a railway is
entrusted. The Pennsylvania Railroad Company
is rich in the possession of so valuable an officer.
"The head and front of this groat work, J. Ed
gar Thompson, we presume will continuo in the
presidency of the company. It is not often that
we indulge in personal commendation, bat in this
ease wo are tionsolous of no Impropriety in holding
up the materiel of the motive management of the
Pennsylvania Railroad as an exemplar for the
management of other roads ambitious of success.
The Pennsylvania Railroad stands this day a

success has been mostly achieved through the in- '
tiring energy and seal of its president, and the
able coadjutors he has vaned to his aid."

' Action of the Bank of Englcutd.
[Trent the London Tintenolly Article, Nov. 0.1 , i
The Bank.'ef England- have to-day raised their
charge for diMount from 8 per cent., which was
'adopted bathe nth alt,; to the unprecedented } rata
of 9 percent. ' • t
The public were fatly prepitred for the measure,
and in some quarters it had been antleipatid oven
that the movement would have been to 9 per eent.
for bills having not more than sixty days to run, and
10 per cent for longer descriptions. That the lat
ter restrietion would not haveproved too strong
seen* already to Fare,--boon indioated by the feet
that the demand has shown little, if any, diminu
tion. As the public have new an amount of notes
in their hands equal to any recent average,' and
bagnims has been tot some .time undergoing rapid
,contraction, this continued pressure must be mainly
bauhed by alarm and the consequent desire of
every person to get Well supplied. The question
whether any farther rise will be neoessaraawill
therefore greatly depend upon the extent to which
this action is carried.
If the mercantile community, iriatead of rem
idling, from what they have already witnessed of
the course of the bank, that they are inns danger
of being suddenly shut out from accommodation,
will pertinaciously rash to obtain a double share,
any inconvenience they may sustain will be of
their own creating: The bank can undertake to
provide for wants, but not for fears. There is not
the slightest provocative to panic, and whether
such a humiliating exhibition of national igno
runes and folly eau now take plaza is a question
rational people would hardly have entertained a
few' weeks back. The old opponents of the bank
charter act, however, are beginning to bustle in
the storm, and it is impossible to fool certain on
any point. Ono of their groat modes of creating
fright is by pointing to the low state of the reserve
of unemployed notes, as if when that is exhausted
tee bank would be obliged to cease discounting
But the fact Ie that the bank could, under such
circumstances, still continue their discounts on as
great a sonde as ever, since their bills receivable
each day of course on the average bring in es large
a total as they are ordinarily asked to lot out,
They could net increase the reale, but no ono will
suppose that, with a contraction of business in all
quertore, any 'increase can bo required. There is
consequently not the shadow of a pretext fot any
cry for government palliatives.
Some persons who have shown every disposition
to assist in allaying idle apprehensions have never
theless suggested that Governinent should 'inti
mate their Medium( to grant a conditional power
of relaxation In tho saute manner as in 184 f--that
Is, by at notification that upou payment of a' cer
tain rate, sufficiently high to prevent needless
applications, the publio should be allowed to have
osy extent of discount they might require, with
out regard to the increase or decrease of the stock
of bullion,
But the nubile have never in the present crisis
been without an assatranoo equally strong. 'lt is
admitted that it does not matter bow high the rate
may be, 46 long as the certainty ip given thatmoney
can be had at some rate. When hasthis certainty
• been Called In question? The very object of the
bank in mit efieseestve advanoe is to maintain a
position to htutido thorn to comply with ovory.legi-
Smote application, and teem pan bo no doubt of
, this being abated, unless an insane demand upon
them should prevent it. .1t may, however; be oak.
ad, "Why not avert the glance of such folly by a
Government notice that would calm everybody?
Grant that in principle it would bo humiliating
and ridiculous, still it could do no harm. and might
prevent much misoble." This announcement can
scarcely be requisite. Ali classes of the public,
must be well .sewers that if the nation should so
pitiably lose its self-possession as to give way to
panto, these is but one remedy, and that the Go
vernment Will. be compelled to adopt it. There
cad be no need, however, by a formal proceeding
to proolaturs belief Gist the financial sense of the
nation is still se low as to gauge the degrading eon
tingenoy to be regarded not only as possible, but
[from the London Times, Nov. 7.]
It la stated that a deputation of Glasgow nier•
chants and mill-owners is about to proceed to Lon
don to ask the Government for measures of finan
cial relief, If they aro able to define whet they
wish to be adopted, and it should appear consistent
with any principles of public honesty, there can be
no doubt It will resolve fall attention. The,diffi-
Otilty is to conjeeture the probable nature of the de=
mend. It emanot bo for a reduction in the ride of dis
count, dam, while the rate is nine or nine and a half
per cant, in Hamburg, twelve per cant. in Vienna,
and thirty-eix per cent. in Now York, no ono
would suggest that the Bank of England should
lend at a lower rate than nine, unless they wished
to see every ounce of gold drained from the coun
try, and a national bankruptcy as the conse
quence Neither' can they contemplate request
ing that the bank should discount more ;liberally.
Not a single sound bill has yet been rejected by
the bank, nor is there any probability that such
will be the case. Such an application would there
fore simply be a request in another form that they
should be compelled to discount unsound hills.
Neither min it bo for any enlargement of the cir
culation by moans of an issue of ono pound notes,
or any similar device, on the plea that tho existing
amount is not sufficient fur the commercial wants
of the country. Trade has undergone contraction
in all directions, and there has been an enormous
fall in prices, yet the aggregate of notes shown by
the Gazette return of this evening to bo in the
hands of the public is nearly a million in MOBS of
the total in use in June, 1850, when the rate of dis
count was only 4i, and the increasing magnitude
of our transactions was a daily aubjeot of surprise.
None of these grounds being available, it is to be
presumed the deputation will simply solicit the
Governmod to promise that the book shall not be
allowed on any sudden occasion to destroy the own
menial community by refusing accommodation at
any price. le this should bo the ease, se there is
not and never has Wen the remotest (Lingerer suoli
an event, the Chaneollor of the Exchequer can
We no ditlioulty in giving the required assurance.
Whatever may be the views of the deputation, it
is above all things essential that they should be pro
pared to state them specifically. This isle duty
they owe to their fellow-traders. The present is
not n time for any body of inemineonalderately to
create alarm by a vogue clamor for impossible aid,
and thus, by complicating the existing distress', to
paralyse those who can be saved only by the exor
cise of mutual (rounder= and Self.pestemion, We
have boon exposed to difficulties more sudden end
extensive than any nation was ever before celled
to sustain' and the way In whit% they have boon
root must he a marvel to the whole world. There
must have been a cause for this result, and it trill
bo found in our ourreney sygetia It therefore be
hooves all to beware how,by endeavoring to weaken
the public faith in the working of that system,
they may change our calm and dignified course
into ono of imbeeile confusion.

has been exbibitnd by the former during their
stay in the port of Plymouth, and as an inter

prisoners, to see if they could recognise them. •
They only recognised Angelero, but they posi

night of the murder, although they had seen him
there frequently before in company of the murder

'A mob larger crowd of the unetnployed assem

A German (Wm. Muttell) made his appOarance
on the stops and began to address the crowd. lie

sot the men to work, and when the mon got work
they wore to return what was loaned them. He
had many curious ideas of this sort, which wag re

While Murton was talking, Mr. Gordon, the
Chairman of the same Committee, started to ad
dress the crowd, and in a few momenta Morton
was loft talking to himself.
Mr. Gordon stated that the Committee wore do•
ing all they could to got work and was in hopes
that soon "something would be done." He hopod•
they would all retire, and when the Committee
wore ready they would report.
Some of the crowd thought that tho committee
should be " kicked out;" they were a humbug
sot, and many wore for driving them all away from
the Park. Gordon, finding that the crowd did not
like his talk, retired, when a
Mr. Richard Moore appeared end stated that

a few momenta the greatest and most intense ex
citement prevailed among them. The teachers
behaved themselves with remarkable presence of
mind, and in a short period, a calm succeeded the
storm. The shrieks and screams,. and supplica
tions of the little ones, are described tope as hav
ing been thrilling in the extreme.. By some means
or other the news got out of doors, and the feelings
of fond end anxious parenta maybe imagined as
well as described. This is the same school-house
where the children became panio-stricken, from

which resulted in the death of ono or two scholars,

PRI LA D 4PJ, II 4, November2o, 711 Si
A month. ago, in commenting upon' a communi
cation to the New York Herald, vie took occailen
to allude, in terms of strong eondeinnation, to the,
prattioe of drawing hills of exchange on England
at sixty days alght: We regard , thisioractlio as
one of the most fruitful sources of commemial dla
kola, and we shall continue to decry if whidie l yei:
Opportunity serves. There is no .goodreason, in
this age of steam oommunioation ,why a - cheek, on
London or Liverpool tdiould not be drawn at. sight;
or at one or three days time, any more thin ,drifts
on Now Orleans, or New York, or Any OILY in the
United States.
The practice of drawing at slaty days may have
had some slight ground of justificatiim in the days
when international, communication was carried on
by slow sailing vimels, andlhe laterhardeiniaeree
knew nothing of railways, but while the necessity
for anything of the kind has wholly disappeared
before the advancement in mechanical science, the
custom has continued and extended itself into an
abuse, which ought at am and forever to be done
We gladly give place- to the following comma
often from a well-known citizen, who is justly
eminent for a discerning and logical mind, and the
breadth and boundness of hie views as a met
ohant :
Mn. EDITOR. : Your recent' article noon the
buss of credit in the drawing of bills upon Eng
lnd mat the approval of many of those who have
given this subject anything like the attention its
Importance demands. I was tteiy much pleased
also to see a communication was made to the Led
ger over the signature of "Bogy," urging that teh
credit of sixty days, which dealers in foreign,ex—
change are allowed, should be curtailed to ten
days. •
There has been no more fruitful cause of our
present financial difficulties than the system of
•, kiting," which has been so actively pursued by
the dealers in foreign exchange. Ono of the charges
made against the Bank of the United States was,
that she regulated the rate of foreign exchange.
The charge was tree, but 'die did it benignantly—
she regulated it with a,view to.keeping specie in
the country, while the ProaerWeegulatore, OptisiSt
big of about' half-a-dozen houses, find it to their
interest to keep the rate of enduing* at, ornear aa
practicable to, the shipping point, and frequently
beyond for reasons which I shall now mention.
If you call upon one of these exchange dealers you
will find they offer to at (sq . ) 8 per cent. and to
buy at about one-half of dper cent. lasi, and this
half per cent. is little enough for profit, and as a
guarantee commission, and unless they purchase at
once, which they cannot always do, they run the
risk of an advance in the market, which, perhaps,
entails a lose upon them. With exchange at the
above rates, no specie Will be exKrorted, and money
is generally " easy,"' and it the proceeds of
the bill are kept here the intermit will net be
more.than six per cent. But Ole MO is different
where exchange is high . then aekthe dealers what
they are selling at, and you will he told (say) 10 per
vent. end buying at 91 per cent., the difference in
the per centagelbeing thosamo.
Specie is now at the shipping point; a sixty day
bill vf draitn and the seller at the above rate keeps
the money hero for the period of aceeptanee; and,
as specie exportation has tightened the money mar
ket, uses it at from. 12 to 24 per cent It is evi
dent that it is to the interest of these half a dozen
houses, strong I admit them to ho, and respectable
in all their relations in life, to keep tho price of
sterling at a point most profitable to themselves;
but how does it affect the commercial community
In the first place, these houses are sufficiently
powerful to regulate the price of exchange, and
they licopjt at the highest potat. This is against the
merchant. Secondly, by k eeping Hop to 01 tole per
cent., they cause an export of Specie, and this raises
the rate of - money bydank contractions; and
lastly, the selling - of these bills . eves a sixty days'
capital, which is kept up by mailer transactions,
the amount of which cannot bo estimated ! In
fine, the merchants furnish a capita! by the use
of which the rate of exchange and of money in
nand on themselves
As a corrective of this evil, let the merchants
for the next twelve months buy no bills from these
dealers beyond three days sight, and I will an
swer that they will never buy a sixty day bill af
ter that time, except us they would buy other com
mercial paper, discounting at the market rate.
If specie must be shipped—which rarely need be
done, for it is of more value here than abroad—let
it be done by the merthants themselves r and to
make this practicable, I would suggest that a com
mittee be appointed to make an arrangement with
a bank at Liverpool, to whom moderate sums may
be consigned, and then disbursed by orders.
Phila., Nov. 16, 183 Z.
We should ho well pleased to have the Phila.
delphia Board of Trade take this subjeot into con•
'Adoration. Its importance cannot be overrated,
and it certainly is within their province, and loud
ly urges itself upon their attention.
At the stook board to-day there was a small
amount of business transacted, the prices receding
on nearly all kinds of securities at the Brat board,
though Reading Railroad stock, which opened at
231, and fell to 231, afterwards rallied and sold up
to 241. Pennsylvania Railroad fell off a fraction,
closing at 39. The money market during the week
has shown a steady improvement, and 'we quote
good endorsed paper at 10a12, and sales readily
eft ec ted.
The interest on tho bonds issued by the late
districts of Spring Darden and the Northern
Liberties, duo on the 15th inst., having been re
fused payment by the Pennsylvania Railroad
Company, at whose dice the coupons wore made
payable, and the Councils having, yesterday, re
fused to provide for their payment. a multitude of
law-suite aro expected to arise, in which the city
will doubtless ho mulcted with costs. The mu.
nicipal corporations have lent these bonds to a
party who fails to pay the interest, and the hold
ers of the obligations will look with justice,to ' tbe
Maker* and their successors for tedumnitit and
payment, and it would seem the pant of wisdom to
do that which must be done, with atti little 'noise
and expense as possible. The foot sht rill
toad company has paid to the city, , in ' dividends,
an excess Over six ?ex. cent. equal 'to the: nUir un
paid interest, adds to the ill -grave of the refusal
We hive little doubt, hoirevfr, that yeeterdiy'a
decision,otAlouneile will be reconsidered; and the
interest paid. , •tllinn icipal subscriptions to railroad
companies should not be made i but when the ruhr
chief is done, tits ooneequences should be met
withocitilinching, And without dishonor.

• The letters by the Niagara have had a depress
ing influence here, and people are strongly in
clined to be gloomy. In fact, the state of the
public mind in commercial and financial circles,
in Ness York, is so very feverish and weak from
previous shocks, disappointments, and three
months' suffer ing under the torture of the bank
screws, that every breath of unfavorable rumor
startles and terrifies them; and when English
merchants to whom we are in debt, and to whom
wo have not paid a dollar, fail in consequence,
wo aro so nervous that we immediately fancy
that England is on the verge of insolvency, and
that " we have not begun to see trouble yet."
This is a good deal the state of affairs to-day.
The action of the Bank of England, past and future.
particularly the latter, is ettnvamd very freely,
and the most confident predictions expressed,
based on a knowledge of what our New York City
banks would do under the circumstances I mast
not be accused, however, of want of patriotism if
I say that the Bank of England is a /lute better
managed than any of our city banking ins'itutions,
and that, I believe, the former would scarcely re
gsrd'u of any importance what would cause a pa
nte among the latter. The relations of England and
the United States aro too intimate. our debts to
British manufacturers too large for our bankrupt
cy, or rather inability to pay our debts, owing to
the criminal folly of our financial managers, not
to affect severely the commerce of England; but I
still maintain that nothing like suspension of specie
payments, or panic will occur there, even were
every shilling due by this country to be left un
But we can abundantly pay our debts, and will
do so, I hope, in spite of the banks. Our gloriously
abundant crops are coming on every day in large
qnantitiea; and though they are not arriving as
fast aithey ought, owing to the folly of the pro
ducers in looking for higher prices, we are getting
the wherewithal to pay some of our debts, and
would have had enough long ago, but for the want
of confidence produced by the reckless selfishness
of the banks. Those who are holding their pro
duce, looking for higher prices next spring, aro
likely to be sorely disappointed. If the winter is
at all open, and the spring is favorable, it is fir
more probable that we shall see flour down to $4,
or even $3.50 per barrel, than that we shall see a
return to the high prices of last winter. The
shavers are quite gay to-day, and anticipate hard
times, in consequence of worse news from England
by next steamer. They are very slow to lend at
what they can get now, exorbitant though it is
The banks aro stationary ! Anxious to employ
their capital and still be as safe as if they had it
in their vaults. Foreign exchange is more anima
ted for to-morrow's steamer, and previous rates
are firmly maintained. That is to say, London is
IfiSaloBt, Paris 5271a517 (60 days). Gold is MULL
1001; 'Bxehange on Philadelphia is easier, and
can be-had now at 1 fa 2 per cent. discount.
The monotony of the 'street is somewhat broken
to-day by a public, meeting at the exchange to
ratify the nomination of Mr. Daniel Tiermsnn, as
candidate for the mayoralty on the Ist proximo.
There is but little probability that he will triumph
Ile is too late in the field to overcome the power of
the Wood organisation.-
The country bank redemptions go on smoothly.
The Metropolitan has not made any discredited
victims this morning. The business at the clear
ing house was : clearings, $13.470,139.00 ; balances,
81,392,204.24. The Sub-Treasury received $93,-
508.36; paid. $449,416 99, and bare a balance
of $1,94.537.98. The customs receipts for duties
were $5:1,000. The Adriatic will take out, to
morrow, about $400,000 in specie.
The stock market was lower again to-day, but
there is no symptom of panic or very excited reac
tion. The second board closed steadily, and prices
