story, entitled "The Monkey-King."
When we denounced the Oxford and M'Ghee
frauds, and the Calhoun Minority Constitution,
we thought only of our duty to the people and
the pledges upon the Kansas and Nebraska bill
of the political party of which we are amenibor.
Our position was a natural and an irresisti
ble one, we believed; from these notorious pre
mises. We should as soon have thought of
dishonestly escaping the payment of a debt,
or of deierting a friend, as of hesitating on
such a question. , If we had not been sustained
in this course by it 'single journal in the
Union, or if every subscriber to TIM False had
stricken his name from our list, we should
have borne the issue, however painful. to our
feelings, because, while we might have been:
mistaken, we had acted upon the sincerest and
most conscientious motives. But - the same
sentiments that inspired us 'have, it will - be
'Been, inspired very many others. , We now
realize that we - neither mistook onr duty, nor
misunderstood the people. The extra* front
different Democratic papers, whichwe repeat
in our columns to-day,'speak for themselves.
At this Writing our table Is - covered with the
warm and enthusiastic letters of - our political
friends. in all quarters, applauding the- stand
we have, taken. On Saturday we paid a Inv- -
rind . to the county of Barks; and during
our stay we - met with - many of, the prominent
Democrats of that populous empire region.
Without an exception, and in the moat volun
tary spirit, they endorsed our entire *ion on
this subject.
We say all this, not by way of justifying
THE PRESS. The right and the integrity of
the question do that abundantly. Nor 'yet do
we say it to protect us from the imputation of
not being a Democrat or a friend to the South..
On that point we have nothing to explain.
Our political reputation needs no airing. It
has not been laid by in damp corners or hidden
away in dusty pigeon -holes. Such as it is, it
has been as open, as the day. Let those who
wish• for occupation impugn it if they can.
Their labor of love will amuse themselves, and
edify others; and no one will be a kinder
natured or more impartial spectator than THE
PRESS. If they succeed no better, however;
than in their argument against the course of
Governor Werima,,and (as we are now proud
to state) STEPHEN A. Donnas,' the author. of
the Nebraska bill—both being in public pro=
test against this Calhoun Convention—they
will not be as well rewarded for their pains as
their industry, if not their fah:l:M . Bs, may en.'
title them to. It does strike us thatwhen THE
PRESS is on the side of such statesmen as
LAS, there is no very imminent danger of its
hoisting Republican colors.
The Democratic party never can be sus
tained in palliating a wrong—it has never
done so, as n party—its fame is too illuStrious'
to lead to the supposition that it ever can do
so; and in exposing- to execration and con
tempt such men as those who constituted the .
Calhoun Convention, and who would'sanctify
that stupendous wrong by , claiming to be
Democrats, we feel that we aro not 'help
ing the Republicans, but protecting the Dane
crack from the certain triumph of the Republi
cans, if we - failed in our fealty to justice at a
time like the present: --
In regard to the general Adininistration
we have no professions to make. We repeat,
that, in our course on this,whole question, we
solemnly believed we were following after the
example of Mr. BUCHANAN. There has, as
yet, been no formal indication of his purpose
to force this Kansas-Calhoun Constitution
through Congress. There aro many reasons
for believing that this is not his purpose, at
least not now, since Governor WALKER and
Judge Dolmas have taken position, and the old
and young heroes of the Northern Democracy
stand firmly by their side. Besides, Governor
WALKER may produce new facts as to this
Constitution.' It seems to us that he has not
yet been fully heard _by the Administration.
It seems that he was not oven apprised of the
doubt as to his own ultimate decision on this
question. He is a witness that should be
beard. He is competent to the case. Ile was
in the battle, and Comes from the field like a
warrior, who can speak more truly than
those who stand at a convenient distance,
and criticise and denounce his action. We
trust that, through his counsels; some common
ground may be agreed upon, and that all the
friends of the Administration may be rallied in
one solid and resistless column. While there
is, on the part of Democrats who eppose this
Calhoun Convention, a dooidcd purpose never
to yield their opposition, there is, at the same
time, the strongest confidence in the sagacity
and patriotism of JAMES,BUCHANAN.' This is
our case. It was his name that saved us from
sectionalism in 1856. It was his Conservative
character that shattered the Republican col
umn. It was his known inclination in favor
of fair play in' Kansas that enabled us to save
Pennsylvania from that abyss into which she
must inevitably have fallen had• we faltered for
a moment in our adherence to CC THE WILL OF
THE MAJORITY." Our reliance now, as then,
s upon him. .
Some of our Democratic cotemporaries,
who warmly advocate the Calhoun Constitu
tion, do so on the ground that it fairly submits
the question of slavery to the people, and that
this Is all that is neeessark or desirable. It is
worthy of remark, that even this is not done
in the usual mode. On ordinary occasions,
when the body of a Constitution is submitted
to the people, and their judgment is particu
larly desired upon an isolated clause, they aro
authorized to. vote direct for or against such
clause. The Kansas Convention has not only
given the people no' opportunity of passing
judgment upon their entire Constitution, but it
has also prevented them from voting direct
upon the slavery clause as a naked proposition.
They can may vote for the Constitution with
slavery or for the Constitulion Without slavery.
They cannot vote for the slavery clause, or
against the slavery elawie, without also voting
for the Constitution. Suppose A was a can
didate for one office that of Governor—and
B and 'C were candidates for President, and a
law should be'passed' authorizing tl e. people
to vote for A for Governor .and B for-Presi
dent, or for A for Governor and C for Presi
dent, the question of the Presidency would, in
such an event, be submitted very much as the
slavery clause is now submitted in Kansas, and
those who wished to vote on the Presidency
at all, would be obliged to vote fora candidate
for Governor who might be very obnoxious to

in some appropriate manner to express their high
estimate of
your, personal and official character,
therefore request you to partake of a public dinner
at the; Monongahela Nouse, in this city, on such
day as may , suit your convenience.
Having declined a re-election, the expiration of
your present term will soon sever the relation that
for several years has existed between yourself and
the members of the bar—a relation that enables
them to 'boar witness to the great learning, long
experionce,,nnwearied industry and eminent abili
ty with which your duties as a Judge and Chief
Justice of the -Supreme Court of this Common
wealth have been discharged. And while your
long and successful career in public service entitles
you now to retire with the highest honors, and to
seek the ease of private life, we beg you to accept
the assurance 'that you bear with you the sincere
regard and professional respect of •
Your friends and obedient servants,
A. W. Loomis, ,
• and 75 others.
To the Honorable Chief Justice Lewis.
PITTSBURGH, November 18th,1857,
GErnamax : I acknowledge the receipt of
your letter of yesterday, inviting me to partake of
a public dinner. You communicate your approba
tion of my judicial conduct in terms so cordial, ex
plicit, and kind, that) know not how to express
my gratitude. I trust to your own hearts to feel
and appreciate the emotions which move mine, as
the moment approaches for the dissolving our offi
cial relations. Your uniform courtesy and respect
have been a ohooring substitute for the domestic
comforts which public duty required me to forego.
Your great learning and eminent ability in the
disousstons of the important questions constantly
arising out of the vast business connections of this
groat manufacturing and commercial' city, have
constantly aided me in the performance of my
judicial duties. It is just that I should make
these neknowledgments.g
Although I look forward with pleasing anticipa
tions to the termination of my judicial labors and
responsibilities, I confess that a feeling of sadness
comes over me as I am about to part with valued
friends at the bar, and cherished brethren on the
beach. I have good reason to know that the feel
ing is - reciprocal. The measure you propose may
have its uses; I therefore accept the invitation for
any day 'which may suit your convenience, so that
it is before Thursday next, on which day I shall
be obliged to leave Pittsburgh for my residence in
Philadelphia. Yours, with great respect,
To Charles Mailer, Esq.; A. W. Loomis, Esq., Wil
son M'Candless, Esq , and other members of the
Bar of Pittsburgh and Allegheny county.

WASIIINGTON, Nov. 29, 1857.—Opposition to the
recent notion of the Kansas Constitutional Conven
tion is a growing foaling among the conservative
National Democracy of the country. Even a New
York paper, which invariably follows the per
-vading sentiment while appearing to create it, re
traces its steps of previous days, and returns to the
position which it originally occupied.
The fair men and strict interpreters of the plat
form of the Cincinnati Presidential Convention and
the Inaugural Address of Mr. liumiNeu—these
mon, who stood steadily by Governor WALKHR
from the outsot, are not in temper now to abandon
the principle for which ho and they have contended,
As the news arrives from the Northwest, the
East, and from the groat middle States, it is
learned with certainty that the Demooratic repre
sentatives in Congress will, as they have done
during the existence of these Kansas troubles,
yield obedience only to the will of tho majority of
the people of that Territory, as fairly expressed.
,The Lonikvillo Democrat of the 20th and 21st
inst., (the reputed organ of the Kentucky
mocracy,) says:
" It is the duty of the Democratic party to settle the
affairs of KattMs by the straightforward policy they
hare laid down and pledged themselves to. The people
of Kansas are to fix their own institutions, and are
o have afair opportunity to do it. * * * *
It is unbecoming a great swerve from principle
from favor or resentment toward au party. It were
infinitely bate" for the South. , to lose a dozen such
States as Kansas than to allow even a suspicion
that she had countenanced any fraud or juggling
for her benefit. * * We are of opinion that the refusal
to submit the Constitution entire to the popular vote
will be fatal to its acceptance by Congress St. * at
Kansas. le not a State yet; and there is no novereignty
about the Convention. nut if there was, the
people are to settle the institutions of Kansas;
not the people by a fiction of law, but the real
people.,'* * * The Constitution is not submit
ted to thi people, and no reason sail be given for the
onission, except the apprehension Mat It might be
voted down, rill the other States run the ri It of
dragging a State into the Union that does with
to come in on the conditions proposed? They cannot
do it; and toe may safely predict they will not do it..
California and Illinois, Pennsylvania and In
diana, the North, the East and the West, the
Northwest, end 'the Southwest, those who sus
tained the fight in the last presidential contest
will, if report ho true, stand firmly together upon
the ground taken in the present photo of the
Kansas question by the Pitufll4, the Chicago Times,
the Detroit Free Press, and the other principal
Demooratio presses of the country. Of course, the
Now Orleans Delta, the Charleston illereury, and
the South will continue in the course which they
have heretofore pursited.
Shortly after the assembling of Congress and the
organization of the blouse of Representatives, there
will be, I learn, a resolution introduced—and if
introduced, it will certainly be passed--calling on
the President to furnish, if not incompatible with
the public interest, all the information which he
may possess of the affairs of Kansas, as communi
cated to bhp during the recess between the sessions
When the response to this resolution is publish
ed, and it appears that the provisions of the Con
stitution in 'question are slot made public, not
known erect to the Administration, the unfair
ness of the'Convention will become, so apparent as
to draw down upon it the indignation and con
tempt of all honest men of whatever party.

men of prominence in the party as they arrive,

The most important items of news by this steam

of evidence, going to show that the party of ono
hundred and eighteen immigrants, massacred in
the southern part of Utah while on their way to
California—news of which occurrence was sent
from here by the last mail—were murdered by
Mormons. Mr. George Powers arrived a few days

having board many Mormons threaten to kill Gen

a Mormon settlement from the scone of the massa

and other articles, apparently the spoil of the mur

friendly terms with one another, and to be in high
This Mr. Powers also states that in San Bernar
dino he heard Captain Hunt, a man of authority
among the Mormons there, say he was glad for the
massacre, and believed the hand of the Lord was
in it, whether it was done by the whites or red;
skins. P. M. Warn, of Genesee county, Now
York, who came through about the same time with
Mr. Powers, believes also, from numerous facts
observed by him, that tho Mormons are guilty of
the bloody crime. Messrs. Abbott and Fine, two
gentlemen who have lately been at San Andres,
from the Humboldt: river, report great hostility on
the part of the Mormons toward the immigrants
coming to California by the South Pass, and great
friendship with the Indians who had made attacks
on immigrants.
Both Mr. Abbott and Mr. Fine knew of cases
where trains wore attacked in the Mormon country,
by Indians led on by numerous white mon, sup
posed to be Mormons. Mr. Abbott says live hun
dred emigrants have been killed this year on the
road between Salt Lake and California by Indians
and Mormons, but this estimate is certainly very
much exaggerated.

At Fort Bridger he was told by a merchant, that

About thirty miles from Fort Bridger, ho met

all well armed, having abundance of baggage, their
wagons being numbered in messes. Mr. Hones
says ho also here had a conversation with ono of
the Mormon soldiers, an Englishman, who, camp

over the camp-fires. The substance of this conver
sation Mr. Monett reports as follows :

We give below a list of names of parties in whose
favor drafts wore drawn by Messrs. Sather rk
Church, in this city, and most of. which are sup
posed to have boon lost by the wreak of the Cen
tral America. There are a number of persons
who have purchased drafts to send East who have
boon foolish enough to send the first and second of
their exchanges by the same steamer. Such par.
ties seldom keep a memorandum of the date on
which their remittances were forwarded. Some of
the unfortunate passengers of the Central America
purchased drafts Which were on their persons at
the time of the disaster, and consequently their
friends are ignorant of such drafts being drawn.
Both of those classes will be Interested in the peru
sal of this list.
. .
Who list will bo more particularly valuable to the
parties on the other side, who bad reason to expect
such remittances. It will, therefore, be republished
in our steamer edition for circulation throughout
the Union. Thorn will, necessarily, bo a deal of
extra labor for the hankers, in the way of corre
spondence, In arranging the losses. A great delay
and difiloulty will also be experienced in indemni
fying bankers from future demands,
ere they eon,
in safety, refund to the owners of such drafts as had
not produced their duplicates.

QoAnren SESSIONS—Judge Conrad.—The rose
of tins Consinerrial Bard —lbe court was orowded
on Saturday morning, by the friends of Mr.
Wainwright, late president of the Commercial
Bank. There was also a large attendance of
brokers and well•known note•shavers, who ap
peared deeply interested in the proceedings Mr.
Wainwright, who was accompanied by his father,
venerable old gentleman, eat behind his counsel,
Messrs. Phillips and Ingersoll, and did not appear
at all anxious or excited, although some of the
developments, as will bo seen by our report, were
of a rather compromising character.
District-Attorney Mann, who, with Alexander
Simpson, Esq., eonduoted the prosecution, opened
the case by saying that this was a !rata. rorints
in the case of William Wainwright, late pre9ident
of the Commercial Bank in this city, on the
charge of °Moist perjury, in knowingly allowing
the bank to take interest at a greater rate than
six per cent. per annum. That, In the year 1856,
the defendant was president of the Commercial
Bank, and, before that, a director in that Institu
tion. That es president he had taken oath pre
soribed-by the act of Assembly, not to receive more
than half of ono per cent. per month as discount
on promissory notes; the bank was also forbid
don to deal in any thing but gold end ailVer, bul
lion and bills of exchange. Ile expected to show
by the testimony ho would offer, that Mr. Wain
wright had violated the oath he had taken, and
that, with his knowledge and consent, the bank
bought promissory notes from brokers, at a higher
rate than six per cent. per annum, and had paid
for them in unourrent money.
Robert 11. Beatty, sworn—l was a clerk in the
Commercial Bank, in the year 1854.5, and 6 Idis.
cuunt offering book 1854 banded to witness); I find
under the dates of May 2nd, 3d, and 4th the
names of drawers and endorsers of notes whiela were
not offered to the board of directors; these notes
were brought by ens or other of two firms of brokers;
I know that from the way in which they are en
tered on the book ; I saw some of these notes in
the hands of Mr. Wainwright; I know they were
promissory notes; I can tell a promissory note
from a draft or a bill of exchange, five feet off;
these notes wore discounted at a greater rate than
the half of one per cent. per month.
John S. Newbold, sworn—l was a broker in
1851; I did business with the Commercial Bank in
that year; I took the uneurrent funds, sometimes
$5OO, at others $l5OO daily, or every other day ; I
gave my check, either a memorandum or a good
chock for this money; I sometimes gave promis
sory notes for this money; the bank had no pro
' ports in those notes until they discounted them; I
also received bills of exchange and drafts on other
cities; the difference arising out of these transla
tions I paid the bank daily; I don't know the
amounts; there was no fixed amount to be paid to
the bank on these transactions; it was regulated
by the price of the uncurrent funds, and what was
regarded as a fair valuation of money at the time ;
by money, I mean promissory notes, and not gold
or silver; that was the way I arrived at the
amount; the bank left it entirely to ourselves;
semotimos delivered the notes to the bank before I
got the unourrent funds; I either used the uncur
rent funds in my own business. or sold it; I gene
rally enclose , ' the difference in an envelope, and
directed the bearer to deliver it to the cashier or
the president; I received the unourrent money
generally from the teller of the bank, and I re
ceived the promissory notes from the person with
whom I made the settlement.
William H. Newbold, sworn —I am a broker; I
do not recollect having any transactions with the
Commercial Bank in the year 1854 or '55.
Robert H. Beatty re•oxaminod.—The bank mado
in the transutiens of May third and fourth, in
excess of the legal rates, $233.50, and from May
to November, 1854, $11,101.50; the amount that
should be credited to discount i 551,550.64 ; the ex
cess is what was received over the legal rates ;
when drafts and bills of exchange wore deposited,
whatever discount would be taken off' would be en-
tered in the general scratcher, and not given in
as discount; when they sold a draft, the premi
um on it was entered on the premium account;
I saw Mr. Newbold come to the hank every day,
and ho got the uneurrent funds from Mr. Palmer,
and then went into the president's room; I SAW
the envelopes and packages of money go Into the
president; they were generally brought by is per
son In the employ of 'Wm. 11. Newbold, named
Sturges; I don't know what the rates of discount
were on the street in the month of May, 1854;'
any note-broker can tell; without knowing the
loss on the uncurrent money, I cannot say what
the rate of discount really was.
Cross•examined by Mr. Ingersoll.—l sometimes
kept the bgoks; I have made some of the discount
entries; T think I have made some of these dis-
count entries from May to November, 1854; I
officiated often at the discount desk ; I cannot par
ticularize any discount entry in which I know
where the money came from ; the amount of dis
count received in this time is $11,950, and of
promissory notes $1,900,000; Mr. Wainwright
brought in the slips and directed me to make the
entries in the discount book.
Oswald C. Montgomery was sworn, but his tea
timony threw no light on these transactions.
James M. Aertsun, sworn—l am a broker;
have no recollection of receiving uneurrent money
front tho Commercial Bank in 1854; I have got
uncurront funds from the hank, but cannot say
when; the transactions of the firm with the bank
wore carried on by John S. Nowbold ; I do not
know if the bank made any profit by the ex
changes, but presume it did; it is more presump
tion ; our firm sent the excess nearly every day to
the bank, in an envelope; the amount dupondod
on the market value of tho uneurrent monoy, and
also the vain° of promissory notes and bills re
Cross•oxamined by Mr. Ingorsoll—l never had
any transaction with Mr. Wainwright in regard to
uncurront money.
District Attorney Mann then said, ho would
Close here, and, before making any comments on
the testimony, ho would read tho act of Assembly
under which the prosecution was brought.
After the reading of the act of Assembly, Mr.
Mann continued, by saying that the testimony in
this case disclosed a etato of affairs which left
no doubt on the mind of any ono that the funds
of tho bank had been diverted from their legiti
mate purpose, and this by a scheme to evade tho
law It was impossible that these things could
have been done without the knowledgo of the
President, and, if the evidence was to be believed,
be not only know of it, but ho did it himself. Ile
would therefore ask the court to hold this defen
dant to answer for a violation of his official oath.
Mr Phillips, for the defendant, said that no of
fence had boon stated to the court by the District
Attorney. If any Mimeo had boon committed at
all, it must have been perjury, and certainly that
charge could not be sustained against this defen
dant, as it required two witnesses to establish it,
and only ono had testified to these transactions.
Mr. Phillips continued for a considerable time and
with grout force to prose his views, and was fol
lowed by Mr. Ingersoll for the defendant.
Mr. Ingersoll, in a very able argument, con
tended that no ease was made out against the de
fendant, and that he should be discharged.
Judge Conrad intimated that lie would deliver
his decision on Wednesday next. District Attor

PIIILAXIELPIIII, November 28, 1857.
The money market at the close of the week
shows no variation from the features it has pre
sented shale the commencement, though the stock
market exhibits a condition of extreme sensitive
ness, with a tendency to lower prices. The action
of the New York banks in loaning money on call
for stock operations, with a view to raise prices
and enable themselves to realise upon the de ,
preadated collaterale in hand, is - checked, and
likely to be very much restrained for some
time to come, by the news
,frotn England, and
the renewal of heavy specie shipmenta from
this country. The consequence of the curtail
ment of these resources on the actions of the bro
kers is at once apparent in the record of stock Bales
in New York, and, of course, in the other large
cities. Railroad stocks, however, at anything like
present prices, aro more temptingto capitalists than
the bonds, and generally show more firmness in
prices. Those roads particularly which enjoy a
large coal trade in the winter nation are advancing
with steadiness, the early advent of severe weather
having a tendency, by closing the canals, to add
considerably to their ordinary earnings.
At the recent annual meeting of the Girard
Bank stockholders it was stated that the bank had
reason to expect a considerable payment on ac
count of its proportion of an old claim upon the
North American Trust Company, in liquidation for
many years. It was intimated that, though the
usual dividend would be passed at that time, a
dividend might be declared by the directors when
this windfall should come into their possession.
The bank has received as its proportion of one pay
ment on account of this claim within a fraction:of
$140,000, and the prospects are that a further sum
of $60,000 will be received ere long. The whole
claim formed • part of the doubtful assets of the
bank at the time of its reorganization, and the
money thus realised goes far towards making good
the whole amount at which these assets were ap
praised. The action of the bank as to a dividend
is uncertain, though it appears probable, as the
usual time for it has gone by, that no dividend
will be made until the recurrence of the next
semi-annual dividend day. The receipt of the
money having been in a great measure anticipated
for some weeks, the stook of the bank has not ap
preciated in price to any considerable extent under
the news.
Tho history of this claim against the North
American Trust Company forms a ouriona chapter
in financial annals, and might well be the ground•
work of a popular novel. We propose, when
time and opportunity serve, to sketch the outlines
of it for our roaders.

A LABOR OF Lora.—About the first of June
last a few gentlemen from Dr. Berg's congregation, in
Seventh street, above Brown, feeling the need of greater
effort being put forth In the great missionary field of
Sabbath-school enterprise In this city, !secured the
house used by the Cohockalnk public school, in the ex
treme northern part of the city, and immediately went
to work with a view of gathering in the neglected
children of that district. They had not proceeded far
is this good work before they found that, notwith
standing the vieintly was rich in numbers, they had a
comparatively sterile field to work in. Still they per
covered ; the teachers in moat cues being obliged to
walk an aggregate of four miles to attend to their
classes every Sabbath.
Yesterday afternoon we bad the pleasure of visiting
this school, and found to oar astonishment a hones full
of children, numbering nearly two hundred, and under
the management of those devoted men and women who
base it in charge, progressing admirably. The change
upon the conduct of those children since the commence
ment of the school, is very marked, so much so, that
notwithstanding the fact that at first their subjection
to rule was almost impossible, they behaved on the oc
casion here referred to in a manner at once creditable
to themselves and to those who have them in charge
During the address, delivered by a whiter who hap

NEw Yoßc, Nov. 1857-5 20 P.M
The week closes on an inactive money market.
The same torpor that has prevailed for the past
few days still continues, and except on the very
best collaterals, and at very abort dates or on call,
money is next to impossible to get, without sub
mitting to the tender treatment of the note-sha
vers, whose rates vary, according to the quality of
the paper, from If to 3 per cent. a month. Sven
with this worthy class there io an evident indispre
SWIM to avoid all long engagements. They seem
to apprehend that something " will turn up" in
which they can employ their funds even more
profitably than in shaving at the above quoted
prices. How sincerely I hope they may he dia.-
ap pointed.
The banks will be found, In my opinion. to have
contracted still further, Recording to Monday's
statement. They are making themselves very
•• and are suing and laming executions
every day, with the most eager assiduity. They
continua to seek "prime commercial signatures"
and ‘. first-elm collaterals," but the search is pro
ductive of very insufficient results. Their friends
regard the permission given to the Bank of Eng
land to expand, if neemary, to supply the legiti
mate wants of commerce, as very tmlisereet and
ill-judged. The result of the permission, the
stay of the panic, and the restoration of con
fidence, does not exactly illustrate the force of their
reasoning; but as their own pursuit of the oppo
site policy has been .so beneft:isl • they hare
abundant reason to vaunt the superiority of their
management Nine hundred and ninety-nine cut
of every thousand of our commercial men are
stupid enough to believe that had the New York
banks done what the Bank of England is now em
powered to do, and as they repeatedly promised,
the lists of failures in the independent would not
have been so large, and the banks themselves
would have less plethoric portfolios of doubtful
" bills receirable."
There is no mention made now of a remmption
of specie payments by our delectable banks. I
beliere that erent is now indeinitely postponed,

The hope once so eanfidently entertained that
the N. Y. Central Railroad could still pay a diet
dead of 9 per cent.. n4withstanding the hard
times. is now dispelled. It is admitted, that un
less the directors can borrow all tha money, no
dividend ran be declared, and it is to be bepesk
that they will not take so ruinous a course. It is
far wiser to pass the dividend and pay ci the
floating debt. The road is certainly cane of the
soundest, if not the roundest, in the Union ; but
strong as it is, it could not resist the pressure of
the last three month.. At a meeting held to-day,
it was resolved to appoint a committee to consider
the election of a board of directors on the 9th
proximo. It is probable that. as Mr. Consing's
duties in Congress will prevent his attending to
the bus:nma of the road as president, he will re
sign his seat, and another president will be elected
on the 9th of December. The falling of in the
November receipts will, it is believed, be very
large It is supposed that the groat receipts cf
