I. learn from the highest authority that the Post

him by the note of 3d March, 1845, and 3d March,

it will be at ones peroolved alms to abolish the
various penny-post offices In those cities under

It is said in support of this measure that it

Upon this subject of banks, which I have herein

the late splendid massage of the President of the
United States: "The existence of banks and the
birettlitlon - of bank met are so identified ,with
the habits of our people, that they cannot at this
-day be suddenly abolished without moll imme
dicta injury to the country. If we would confine
them to their appropriate sphere, and prevent
them from administering to the spirit of wild and
reckless speonlation by extravagant loans and

sollection : if experience shall prove It to be lm-
Possible to enjoy the facilities *bleb well regulated
banks might afford, without at the same time suf
fering the calamities which the excesses of the
banks have hitherto inflicted upon the country,
it Would then be far the lesser evil to deprive
them altogether of the power to issue a paper cur
renerand confine them to the functions of banks
of deposits and discount."

Among the most distinguished and promis
ing members of the bar of Leavenworth, is
tito Hon. John A. Haldeman, member elect of
te Council of the Territorial Legislature.
into H. is yet quite a young man, not more
thav twenty-eight or thirty years, but by his
talehts and energy has established a very reputation, being regarded as a well
rear. and skilful lawyer, and au eloquent, for
cible jurist and political debater.
In the late contest in Leavenworth county
he led the ticket, being elected to the Council
by areeisive majority over his political oppo
nent , as well as the Democrats who were
nominees on the same ticket. This fact argues
well for the future success mid politica) emi
nence, of Judge Haldeman, and is alike hone
rableAo a constituency so capable of a just
appreniation of true merit, and to him whom
they have honored with such a marked and
genernus manifestation of their confidence.
I need not say that Judge Haldeman is a De
meentAin the true sense of that term. Never
count ancing the excesses committed in this
Territory by some who have zeal without
knowleilge, ho enjoys to the fullest extent the
confidence of the Democracy, while he com
mands the respect of his political opponents.
Win gpatifying to see men like Hidden= at
taining; political distinction. No man in this
community would make a more able and popu

represent the people when this Territory be
'comes a i State. He is also a great admirer of

Greeniburg, in this State, according to the ,
Democrat, must be a very queer place. The
coroner holds an inquest, and the doctors make
post-mottent examinations. merely on suspicion of
a man being deed. The Demoerat is responsible
for the fallowing Mary; For some time back,
whenever a man dies within six miles of Greene
burg, there is a general rush, on the part of our
justices of the peace, to be the first to reach him,
to hold en inquest upon him. Not loss than three
weeks have passed by since an Irishman went into
a shanty, near town, in the afternoon, whereliquor
was sold. After aittitig by the stove for tome
time, he was invited to take a drink, which
be did, end then resumed his seat. Pre
sently, be laid down by the stove and appa
rently fell asleep. There he lay for several
helm, when, the night coming on, some persons
attempted to wake him up. in order to have him
leave to bunt quartets for the night. This could
not be done; and it was summed that he was dead.
leemeilletely, word was despatched to town, a pa
tio of the muse was informed of the fact, a coro
ner's jury was summoned, and being unable still to
waken the man up, they set to w o rk and out bite
up to aseertainlthether or pot he was dead ! By
the time the doctors got through with him, there
remained no'dOubt• on' the minds of the Jury of
his death.' . It, is , reported to us that in less

The shipment of specie by the Europa, the lam
est ever made by one vessel, amounting to $2,381,-
822 can hardly fail to exercise a favorable effect,
in ;he event of its 'safe arrival in England. It is
said that the amount shipped would have been
mutht heavier, but for the difficulty of effecting
further insurances. There are some doubts as to
the 'propriety of sending such large sums in the
winter season by a single vessel, at a time when
the moral effect of its loss would be very disastrous
to slowly recovering confidence and the enfeebled
state of the international exchanges. No smolt
cendderations, however, can be expected to influ

number of shippers ,act independently, and in lg.
norince of the doings of each other, It lA. perhaps,
fortimate that the limits of the lines of the under

It may be noted as an interesting feature of
the late panto, that in his explanations to the
Rouse of Commons on the Bank of England in

stood in October, as •

In regard to the source of trouble on the late
panic, the Chancellor comes to the tame oonedu
elan with our BN:watery of the Treasury, that it
was in the mess of private credits inscribed at
bank, deposits on the one band, and bills (Recount
ed or other accommodations granted on the other.
The Chancellor instances the Western Bank
failure at Glasgow as occurring without the
slightest premonition to or from the noteholders,
who neither knew of the run on the bank, nor
showed the slightest concern for the safety of its
notes, until the mischief had been done, through
the alarin of the depositors. Itt like manner Se
aretary Cobb shows that the bank suspension in
New York was the work of the depositors.
