of the Mammoth Hank Bill "in the Senate,
and urgo him to support the measure by
every means in his power? Did he not re
fuse to attend the Young Men's fourth of

favor of the Mammoth Hank? And is he
not at this time opposing a part of the dem

nuining to be 'Director General of this coun
ty,' calls us "a stranger," and so forth.
Wc never cither claimed or merited a mili
tary title, nor did wo ever assume any con
trolling power over the will of the pctfplc;
hut the Devils of the Sentinel should know
that wc were acquainted with the leading
politicians of this county wfiilo they were
enjoying that minority which their incapa
city to publish a newspaper would render
both agreeable and befitting at this lime.
g'yLetthe Democrats of Columbia coun
ty beware of Wolves in Sheep's cloihing
of those who profess correct piinciplcs, but
who oppose Fruit and Me Williams. They
have sinister motives and they have been
instigated to this disorganizing course from
those sectional feelings which were warm
ed into malice from Hie part which Mr.
Fruit took in the Removal question. Let
every democrat who.apprccialcs and would
preserve tlie principles and ancient usages
of the party, put his solemn veto upon their
base designs, and thus show thu power of
tho ballot-box in preserving uhirtn and har
mony, the forcrunn'c'rs of certain triumph
to our pUrly and Our candidates.
There arc some politicians, particularly
the bank whigs and anti-masons, who in
the present emergency of our affairs, are
pulling and whining. They fear to meet
tho evil; they shrink from a conflict with
the Bank and its power to oppress; they
humbly beg for terms, and talk of expedi
ents to soften tho asperity of the enemy.
These arc (he cowards of the day, and such
men were the tories of the revolution.
They are the tcuiporiziiiL' politicians men
who would fell their lib lb-right for a iness
of pottage mock patriots, in whom selfish
ness is another name for meanness, and
cauiion another name for cowardice. The
crisis hasarrivptl. TIIF. PEOPLE MUST
EITHER SUBMIT TO THE BANK,
OR THE BANK SUBMIT TO THE
PEOPLE. A free and sovereign people
can and will make no concessions they
make n'J terms they insist upon their
rights they know and they will inaiiltain
The sovereign power which Gov. Ritncr
lias transferred to the Bank must bo repeal
ed, and who will be injured I
The threats of the Bank aro futile the
predicted evils of the Bank 'men arc imagi
nary. They are chimeras got up by fear
and interest.' How is it possible., that by
reducing tho banking capital to what it was
when we had a specie currency, we can bo
ruined? Is the drun'ksrd. ruined by being
made sober ? Reeling in intemperance, he
may tell you so himself, but none but a
drunkard or a fool will believe him. Tlje
arguments of tfic Bank and its advocates
aro not suited to a sober community. They
may bo received by those intoxicated with
the" golden dream of money-makers, spe"cu
lators and gamblers, but an upright matter-of-fact
people cannot be reached or influen
ced by them. The people are preparing
to elect representatives whoso honesty,
wisdom and firmness will represent their
constituents. I hey will proceed in the
work, guided by wisdom. They will strip
tho bank of its ill-gotten powpr, and pro
vido for tho common good. Can this not
bo done? Who will venture to assert tha't
it cannot? None but monarchists and bank
aristocrats. 'Tis they who fear tho people
they have ever held tho opinion that the
people arc unfit to govern themselves. Did
Thomas Jefferson fear the people? Wcro
ho living would he shrink from trusting to
their wisdom and firmness? Would ho
hesitate to abide by their decisions ?

t,fian(.r 0f the Fuitid Slates Bank were
repealed to-morrow, there would remain
twfnty.t!irfe millions of banking capitid in
the slate six .millions more than there was
in 1S35, .when the currency was sound.
Supposc alaw should bo passed to-morrow,
requiring all the banks to increase their
capital, or diminish their., loans, so.as that
thcloans should bear a reasonable and just
proportion to their mean's of paying their
debts, and that bankers, like other men
should bo made Jiablc to pay .the just de
mands against iTiem who would he hurl?
Would they throw up their charters? There
is no danger, and if they did, their places
would bo immediately supplied by institu
tions foil tided ltpnn a sound basis. It is
preposterous to believe that any banking
institution, gpverned. by reasonable men
and sound views, would stagger at such
provisions. There is, in fact no difficulty
iti'the way of restoring; to the people their
rights, but that which interested individu
als, governed by their fears, or mercenary
motive.1, conjure up to deceive the people.
Tho condition of tho people is sound all
tho management of the bank has not been
able to mislead them, with the exception
of a few in Philadelphia, Eric and Beaver.
Their industry, enterprise and honesty
IiafQ sustained them and do sustain them,
in defiance of the misrule of the Bank'.
Their real strength is proved by their ca
pacity to.. go onward, notwithstanding tho
weight of mischief which the bank has pla
ced upon litem, and it will be further pro
ved by the ca;.e with which it will shake it
ofi". A democratic administration, sustain
ed by a vast majority of the people, and an
imated with the love of freedom and equal
rights, will be amply adequate to bring
back the government to its republican trrck,
and restore to the people the sovereignty
which Governor Ritncr ha3 transferred to
the Bank. Pa. Jleporler.
John C. Calhoun, it is confidently sta
ted, has acknowledged himself favorable to
the plan recommended in the President's
Message, fof the keeping of the Public
Moneys. IJc . proposed the, samo system
two years since! in lha.Senate. The Bal
timore Merchant & Reformer, the organ. of
tlie south, and tho advocate ot its interests,
holds (he following significant language in
ldalion to the Message. It will be seen,
that Wlnggish, as its principles arc, this
print gives the Message credit lor its per
spicuity of style. Lancaster Intelligencer.
"Wo do not, at present, propose to anal
izc the President's Message, but shall con
lluc ourselves to some general observations,
merely. It certainly contains matters of
great weight, which well deserve the calm
est consideration of congress'. I t is written
with considerable ability, in a moderate
and conciliatory temper, and presents', with
al, a fair and explicit issue before the coun
try. Whatever may be thought of the wis
dom of its views, or the expediency of its
recommendations, if would be unfair to say
that it did not contain aclearaud unqualifi
ed avowal of the opinions of the govern
ment. The credit of perspicuity and cx
plicitncss cannot bo denied to it, as it re
commends, in plain terms, a positive and
total divorce of tho government from all
banking institutions, and the establishment
of a Treasury system as the instrument to
receive and disburse tho public revenue."
Settings of Congress. One of the Ion
jjest sessions of Congress was held at Phila
delphia, from Nov. 13th, 1797, to July
lOlh, 1708, being 210 days. The shor
test session was held at Washington, from
May Uiid, to Juno 28, 1800, being 38 '
Locusts. The whole territory of Wis
consin seems likely to be nt'o'rcuu with lo
custs. They caino about iho 10th of June,
