Every rornnlcil fiift or the lasf thirty vents,
is but liidlnry to show us the Iruth of our
premises, and point us to the correctness of
our conclusions. Why then do the people
slumber under their multiplied grievances ?
Is virtue extinct? Is intelligence in exilo ?
Or has the dark nnstocratic brow of a Web
ster, or tile smoothly rounded period of an
expiring C'lay, operated with the pretended
jiowcr of crrpent fascination, to lure the
people to their own destruction ? If so,
'thought, reading and facts may operato to
dissolve the charm, and every citizen of
our country, when thinking of that heritage
of liberty which has been bequeathed to us
' by Revolutionary sires, will unconsciously,
'unhesitatingly, and with every energy that
thought enn inspire, breathe forth the aspi
ration, Esto perpetuo, let it be enduring.
To do nil this, and to establish tho liber-
Mies of o'ir country upon that firm base,
'which unulring domagogucs are ever ready
in shake, tho peoplo should not only de
mand an entire reform in tho bai k'ng sys
tern of the country; see that public- agents
are elected loLcgislativc bodies, who will aid
in bringing such capital as may be employ
ed in banking operations within the salutary
pruvisions of such laws as may be promo
tive of tho interests of tho people; but they
should discard from their favor such men as
tilav. Webster. &c. &c, who have been
nourished to their present degree of pop
ular favor in the hot bed of bank influence.
As they have sold themselves to Mammon,
bo would they sell the liberties of tho peo
plo for gold to promote their own unhal
lowed purposes of pleasure and ambition.
Much has been said and written within
a few weeks past, in regard to the present
position assumed by the banks, and as to
what position the Legislature should assume
towards them. There appears to be three
classes the two extremes, and the middle
or moderate class. Tho one extreme is for
tearing them up, root and branch striking
them at onco from existence. The other
for placing no mote restrictions upon them
than now exist, but rather extend to them
the additional power of issuing bills under
five dollars. These two classes, however,
aro small in comparison to the third or mid
dling class, who aro opposed to any exten
sion of tho present banking capital of tho
Slate; but are for placing them under whole
some restrictions such as will protect tho
peoplo from the evils flowing from tho too
.often extension and contraction of their bu
siness, and placing them upon a foundation
that will firmly fix the confidence of commu
nity in their stability and usefulness. We
were originally opposed to all banks, from
& belief that the best interest of tho country
would be better subserved without than
with them but others havo thought other-
wise, anu eitner irom a uesire id auvauct:
their own interest, or to promote the gonc
.ral good, have succeeded in placing thiough
out the country, innumerable banks, and
their managers have so successfully man
aged as to interweave their operations into
all tho ramifications of the business of the
country, that one cannot be destroyed with
out bringing the other to the same grave.
They have therefore become so closely con
nected that it is now impossible to separate
.them, and a banking system must be con
tinued as a necessary evil, Although this
js apparent, yet they should, and must be
restricted in their operations so as to protect
the community from their grasping avarice,
and their leadiness to overreach the peoplo.
To do this, will devolve upon our next Le
gislature, and to them wo loofc with confi
dence for tho adoption of measures that will
regulate them, and secure the peoplo from
tho curse in future, of tho revulsions in bu
siness, which have shaken the country to its
centre, and destroyed its thousands of active
and industrious citizens within a few years
.past. To our worthy governor wo look
-with still further confidence, to recommend
.and urge some judicious measures, a3 he
lias already shown a steady determina
tion to protect tho rights of the many a--gairi't
tho encioachments of the few. That
something must be done to secure the con
fidence of the people in the stability of banks
but. few deny, the only question appears to
lie what measure shall be adopted. Noth
ing, however, should bo dune without due
reflection, as wehave already had too much
ha.s(y legislation and action upon the sub
