In obedience to instructions by yesolution of the Senate, the Committee on„Banks, so far -as it was possible within the very limited time af forded them from the pressure of other duties, have inquired into the extent of_the suspension of specie payment's by the banks of this Com rnonWealth, the diminution and 'extension of discounts thereafter ? as well as the aolveng of these institutions, and now. submit the follow ino report, based upon such information as they have thus been able to obtain : Your Committee.sddressed.firculars to all the Banks in the State, and inost of the information we .have is derived from :the &ewers of 'their officers, and some personal examinations before the Committee. ME The suipension. WSW sudden And unexpected, not produced;by any of • the ordinary causes.— The unnecessary, - yet, general alarm, produced by ambitious and, designing politicians ; the bold andunscrupulonit efforts to precipitate the Southern States of -the Union into a separate confederacy, and:tbussiestroy our nationality— a cherished idea with, a few- extreme men for more than thirty.years—and the warlike dem onstration made in that section against the governmed, affected at once the trade, the ottm.merce and the credit of the Southern States, and produced Alann, ,distrust, a depression of securities, and a Sniper:a% of payments by the fiscal corporations Of the country. This feeling, this condition of things, extended , so rapidly to Richmond and Briltimore that, without notice or any apprehension of such a state of affairs, when money was- most abundant, securities ample and multiplying, with no commercial difficulty, and the country prosperous as at any former period, the banks of our own metropo lis, finding their - specie - dilakieasing before this general distrust, suspOided payments in coin on the nineteenth day oflast November; the news of which, telegraphed by order of the. Boards of Directors of these institutions . to Pittsburg and elsewhere, caused and induced a suspension also by most of the banks in, other parts of the Your Committee are aware that - about one fifth of this specie was drawn.from the banks:of 'hiladelphia . in one - day of the excitement, which was well careclated" to . produce alarm ; yet they believe there was no suchgeneral dis trust in the public mind within this State as justified a course in direct violation of the obli gations of those institutions to the people which could only produee'peniriand financier distress throughout the country. . . - Most ofthese banks had anahundanee of spe cie to enable them to pass through the moneta ry crisis, and a compliance with the law on their part, would have inspired confidence where it was wavering, and prevented tench embarrass.- mint and suffering,: and if -it were not for the great, injury which would inevitably be inflicted upon the people in their business relations . by compelling such banks at have thus violated the Jaw to :yield their charters to the State, yo t ur Committee would recommend their forfeit ure with little hesitation. There are a few banks in the State, however, that • are so care fully and prudently managed at di times, whose officers have 'the confidence of the community to 'lurch an extent that in no crisis do they find it necessary to violate the law and risk a for feiture of their franchises ; and equal prudence in the management of others would always en ablethe people to look with confidence and as surance that these institutions, created profes sedly for their benefit and the promotion of bu siness-in the "shiatild not prove en gines of oppression by a violation of those very laws enacted to compel the obedieneethey dis regard. - . . • . -- - . The written answers to the circulars of your Co•mmittee prove another most important fact in the results of this suspension, to wit : <while the banks allege that unless they did suspend and refuse to let their specie be carried away, they could not accommodate the business com munity and their regular customers with new loans ; but, on the other hand, would be com pelled to enforce payment, of their dues and thus incidentally produce still greater ember rasiment. Instead of expanding their loans and accemmodations, they actually refused perempt orily all discounts and continued to :contract and withdraiv their circulation until the dimi nution in the aggregate reached over one mil lion of dollars. So large an amount of the as live circulating medium thus- withdrawn and now held by the very class of institutions which were expected to aid in the trade, industry and eonimercial operations of the State, cannot else Bum extend arid prolong our difficulties. The annual and quarterly reporta, as well as thepersonal examinatirsi afforded us,.: incom plete as it has been, lisiid us to' the belief that, with one or two exceptions, the •banks of Penn syliania are as safe and sound as those of any Other State in the Union ; and nothing but an utter disregard of obligations, . solemnised by an oath for their performance, could endanger the public interest. The obligation between the banks and the'State is mutual ; they are invested with special privileges by acts of in cEctintr. oration, and can make a legitimate and ade iMte profit within the legal and moral re t imposed on them ; •and thoee to *horn, the* management is entrusted should be made to feel that they are expected and will be re qiiitied to discharge their obligations by furnish ing Ito the people a sound and reliable currency. Theicharacter of the directory and of those having more immediate control of the banks, has much to do with the public confidence, and nil, probably, than their favorable quarterly. andmmual statements, made under oath ; and hen tei t n none but men of tried and acknowledged in 'ty should have any voice in the manage me tof their affairs. - The Commercial Bank of Erie, having lest the Confidence of the people, should be compel ed tt• apply its assets, . as far as they will go, to the redemption of its paper and to surren der its charter to the. State. The Monongahela Va ey Bank, at biT•esPort, ; which has en co tered embarrassments, is taking in its cir cul ion ; and those who control its affairs pro fess hat they willbe ready to resume`Specie pay me at the time specified in the bill before the nate ; and your Committee see no good n for discrediting their statements. As the circulation is not large it will soon be red med. , Y ur Committee having reported a bill on e l the object , are not prepared to recommend any , ditional enactments on the sribject 'be fore' hem. Indeed, it is a 'question worthy Of . , ..: • sole consideration, whether the ' enormous: tax now imposed - in:Vora banks, antithe legal r inhstrivrhkh they are subject, - does not ten' to increase the difficulty and invite a vio lation of law, We hereunto annex a state ment made from the reports or answers of the "INDEPENDENT IN ALL THINGS--NEUTRAL IN NONE.f- HARRISBURG, PA., MONDAY AFTERNOON, APRIL 1, 1861 REPORT • various banks of the State, showing the num ber that are on the, suspended list and those that report otherwise, and also the contraction or extension of discounts of the same..

The Act of 18th April, 1867, extends to the bo rough of Le.wisburg the provisions of the 6th secfion of the Act of 11th April, 1840, with a proviso annexed that the auctioneers of -said borough of Lewisburg should not be author ized to sell at auction the books, wares and merehandize of transient dealers in those arti cles not residing in the said borough, and also fixes the duration of the commission, as in the Act of 1883, at one , year. The present bill proposes to repeal this pro viso, and in lien thereof, to extend by legisla tion. the license to three years without making any provision by way of security to the Coin monwealth, as required by the Act of 6th April, 1888. The bond given by the present auctioneer ex pires at the end of the year from its date, and the securities thereon are, as wellas the principal, exonerated from all liability to - the' Common wealth for anything done thereaMr. This bill legislates a continuance of the principal in of fice, but cannot earry with it a :continuance of the obligation of a bond given under an exist ing law, which limits its duration, and espe cially' so without the consent of, the securities who have a right to consider their liability at an end when the time for which they obligated themselves has expired. Whilst the general law regulating auctions limit ,the commission to a single year, the policy of special legislation changing this gen eral. rule is, to say the least of it, of doubtful propriety. A careful observance of uniformity in confer privileges- and in imposing burdens upon our people should ever be regarded . as the only true course to be adopted in legislation and as far as is. consistent with the, general intent, special - legislation should be avoided. The bill is greatly objectionable upon another ground. The repeal of the proviso of the 18th of April, 1857, would allow the auctioneer of , - the borough of Lewisburg to selrthe books, wares and • merchandise :of :.transient,: dealers not residing in the said boroughtkereby ena bling any person to bring -within' the limits of 'said borough any amount • of goods and hive them sold at auction, without requiring from the owners thereof any tax upon capital, d'ivi dends, license or commission.

Others who pay their regular annual license, would - be subjected to an unjust competition at their doors, and that, too, by cla.ss of transient dealers, who, wtth out this - proviso; would be wholly exempt from all liability to contribute to the revenue ofthe' Commonwealth.

By Act of 2nd of Ju1y,1839, general power. was given to the people of any election, district, hithe way and manner therein designated, be ing by ballot, to change the place of holding township elections, and by another,General Act of the 20th of April, 1854, upon' petition of one third of the qualified voters of any election district in the Commonwealth, the Court of Quarter Sessions authorized to"order an election upon the question of the location or change. of the place of holding the general, special and imolai, elections for such district. • A necessity may sometimes: arise for the spe cial interposition of the Legislature in overriding these general laws, which shall at alltiines claim from me due consideration and , respect. In the present instance no such necessity has been as signed. The general laWs referred to were evi dently very carefully framed, in which the theo7 ny. of our government = regard for the popular will—is wisely cared for and studiously pro tected. Laws are enacted as well to promote the comfort and convenience of the people, as for their'protection and enjoyment of their ab solute rights, and in no way can that, comfort and convenience be better secured, than by, a I close adherence to the great fundamental prin ciple, which must;underlie all forms, of. Repub lican government, to wit : the voice of, a ma-, jority of the people within the jurisdiction as signed them, whether that be townoldp,conA, ty, Strife or nation, Once, it IS true, is a repre sentative government—of ainiked Chitacter• ut nevertheless founded upon popular will, and respectful deference to which, never fails to keep the machinery of government insuccessful itsam tiding Po.

It is the mkt of respect for that opinion which leads to prejudice, begets oppres sion, and ends in tyranny, rebellion and roto intim. It cannot be presumed that the'Legis lature, under any imagmable state of circum stances, are as well informed upon the question of Changing the place of holding elections, as the people who are be affected by such change, and as long as these general laws--which were so wisely and cautiously framed, remain upon the statute book—l shall not feel'lndliued to disturb them by special legislation.
