keeper fully identifies them as the men
who passed through.
When thoy were stripped a t the prison,
blood was found upon other portions of

Dear Cor,; :.
The Ledger's money article of Wednes
day, contains a very gratuitous and un
called for attack on tlio country banks.
Now, you are awaro that I am not a do
fcrtder," scarocly even .an! apologist, for
that "peculiar domestic institution; regard
ing it as I do, in very much tho same light,
that our black Republican friends affect to
regard tho " peculiar domestio institution"
of tbc South ; but I believe it is a h'zV,
well known and understood, that if tho
Philadelphia banks had been sound and,
had ttaod tip firmly and honestly against
the pressure, tho coun'ry banks could very
catlly havo sustained themselves. Thoy
tfero, riot lite first to " suspend," they did
not feci such a course to be necessary, and
woro only driven to it by the uncalled for
act of tho city banks It was not tho
country banks who petitioned the Governor
for an csira sessjoa.,' aud offered to pay
tho expenses of tho samo ; nor have any
of lho country banks gone down in tho
storm, as have some of those institutions
in the several cities. Wo apprehend that
it is too lato for th; city delegation id
boast of ltd virtue or soundness on tho
currency question, as it is beginning to bo
understood by the people ; and wo suspect
the Ledger, is endeavoring to manufacture
some capital for the Philadelphia banks,
under tho imprsssis'n that they may not bo
able to resume specie payments, on tho
second Monday of April next. It is tho

uf " stop thief," which tho pilferer cails
out most lustily himself, to divert tho at
tention of tho crowd to another quarter.
Tho opposition are quite jubilant over
what they afe pleased to call the defection
of Douglass. To judge by their talk they
wouIdi be trilling to try and make him
President, because ho is in favor of an
abstraction, called popular sovereignty a
doctrine thoy utterly repudiated not eigh
teen months ago. The man thoy denoun
ced ns given over to the slave power body
and soul, as entirely unworthy of northern
support and countenance, as a dough faco
and a traitor, with various other sweet
sounding epithets out of their choice voca
bulary; they, now befotil witU thejr adula
tion more than they ever could by any
amount of abuse aud detraction; and nro
feverishly anxious to adopt him into their
family with all his heresies and lmpcrfop
tions, to make him a priest and a loader
to their motley host.
I shall, not, just riow, discuss the question
f popular sovereignty, and the Kansas
question in its prcseut shape , for really
there cc'ed not sctm to be anything in it
all ; and the President's message and sub
sequent discussions havo got at all, tho
pith and marrow left ramaining. It is
nicst true that poptilar sovereignty, as
connected with tho question of tho adoption
of ihe Kansas constitution, is the merest
bstrao'fon ; coiilaining within itself noth
ing to distract tho democratic party or
2istrirb its harmony, aud nothing which
rgucs the abandonment of any great
princlplo of the party, whether the view of
the administration, or that of Judgo Doug-
is is adopted, it should however bo a

It is an encouraging sign at such a poriod,
