Were cherishing a hosfilo fecfiiig towards

in tho resolutions as originally icporleil to
the meeting held at Danville, last week
Wo say originally reported, because the re
solutions as they appear in print, arc very
different from those read in the meeting.
Several of tho resolutions are very objec
lionable in' point oflauguago.-nt the present
crises injour monetary affairs, independent
of other considerations. It is no time -for
threats and criminations, when it requires
all the sagacity, experience and prudence of
our wisest sidesmen to correct tho evils
which w.o now suffer from the present ill
devised banking system. The people do
not want denunciation for the past, but pro
tection for tho future, and they look to the
stern and uuyiclding'intcgrily of Governor
Tortcr, and tho steady determination )ic has
alrcadv manifested to sustain tho rights of
tho people, and not lo liis fears of the chur
lish snappishness of a few disappointed in
dividuals, to recommend some judicious
amendments to tho present system, that will
insure tho protection required.
i llnw:diflcrcnt the feelings manilestcil in
f'the following article from those expressed
by the Danville Junto at tho late meeting.

Our friends in the. district misrci.rcscnled
by these individuals, havo taken up the
work of redress in a proper and spirited
manner, petitions have been circulated in
every part of tho district, and wo believe
that a majority of the voters in the wholo
district havo already attached their names.
wo earnestly ilesire an investigation into
tho manncr which ihes? gentlemen obtained
their, seals ; and promise nil concerned, that
no petitions will he held back, but that all
papers lioui both sides will bo laid before
lbs Senate. Exintrle investigations ended
with the reiffii of terror in 1838 hence
forth any one feeling aggrieved may c.alcti
latc.upon a full, fair and impartial hearing.
That a majority of the resident void's of
that district voted for Messrs. Eycr and
Frow, wo never questioned nor will any
man pt clouding to a grain o candor doubt
it. It is therefore evident that ihey arc
not the representatives of the majority, and
consequently should ho ousted, and their
places lined by the choico ot the majori
