" If we could only get a larger discount
i> line," said a young mtriliant to a friend,
d "ive could double our business; what we
" want is capital, and discounts would give it
• lo us." "It is lack for you." replied Ids
h friend, who happened to be old experi-
II j encs.d, "lhal you caimnt gat a larger discount
e ' line; for it would tempi yon.-13 extend your
I business and then fail you, just when yon
- ! needed il most; lake my word for it, relying
t on bank accommodation* to milage your cap
't j it ul is leaning on n broken reeil."
j The old inercl.uul was rigid. Il is strange
, I indeed, that lltn delusion which lie refused,
s ! prevails so generally among our beginners.
There is nothing which more frequently ru
. ! ins mercliaiits than this enlarging of their
, | business on the faith of an increased dis
; 1 count line; for such additions to llteir means
. j cannot be permanently rlied on, and should
not he regaided as capital. The plan works
t i well enough while everything is prosperous,
inor.ey cheap, and the banks eager lo linil
1 borrowers. Hut let a succession ol bail crops
1 j come, let ihe country over trade ilsell, or lei
| a financial panic arise from any cause, and
lo ! ihe bank cms down your discount line
, j immediately, and 10 all your expostulations,
. j curlfy replies that "it must protect itself." —
Thousands of inerehants were ruined be
! liveen the years 183(5 and 18-10, by having
| depended on bank ueenmmodalinns lo ex
lend their business, fit the period of cxpan*
j stor. they have beguiled into "making haste j
I to get rich," by the faeilities oflered by the '
! hum's; but when the hour for cordractinn
i came, when the banks put down their dis- j
] count lines, they found, alas! that lltey had 1
j beet: leaning 011 a broken reed.
A*k nuy intelligent nnil experienced mer- J
elintd, who has realized a Infinite, unci lie I
will say Hint bunk neenmiiiodstiiin*, though j
ihey may be salely used lor lempurnrv em- i
1 urgencies, should not bo relied on to ineran-e j
capital. For the later is required perm a- j
ni'tilly. and ought in be above the chance- J
of favor. It a dealer does business on ,
lilty thousand dollars, which he either pos
sesses in hi* own right, or tin* borrowed lot
a tent, of ye ns, hit knows, or should know,
preei-ely lioiv mneh he end salely sell; bid
lei him sell one liumlrad per cent, more, re
lying on bank Accommodations to tits extent j
ol att additional litiy thousand, and he sub
jects himself to the tisk of insolvency, the
moment the banks reduce his discount line
N.nv, in 111 ft-ommetcial transections, there '
me enough nks beyond tha merchant's eon- '
trol. without nteieaimg them by trading on
a espial burrowed. Item quarter to qti ioer.
Item the banks. Tlta temptation to enlarge
a business, by raising money on discounts,
is one to which voting mercltsnts, pinched
lot capital, are peculiarly liable, but beware
of it, lor. as the old shipper said, tt is lean
ing en a broken reed —Ledger.

ti | Although 11 week has elapsed since Bam
1, ' nel H. White was brutally murdered in bed,
1- in his residence near the Borough of Wash
t ir.gion. the police have been unable to gath
er any satisfactory or even circumstantial in
) formation, which might serve to dispel the
e I cloud of mystery which hangs around ihe
; bloody deed.
- I The Washington Examiner of the 4th tnst.
a contains full particulars of the tragedy, and a
It I diagram of the house and premises. Trie
• j editor thus describes the Bppearnnce of the
a ; room, as lie entered it about 10 o'clock,
- | Monday morning, some seven hours after the
v ; inuriler:
I | "The face and head were covered with
> clotted blood; the gore was dry and bard—
/ I not a feature of the face could bo discerned.
I The pillow ami bolster on which the head
i | rested were saturated with blood, and the I
, , sheet contained s perfect pool nf it, extending 1
I J from the neck of the deceased to Ihe middle .
i| of Ihe body. Blood was all ntound. The
- j head-board and the upper posts of the bed— t
v j the celling above ihe bed —the wall at the 1
> hca.l of the bed—the window at the side of ,
' the bed—and even the wall six feel Irom the I
1 I bel, were covered with blond.
j The appearance of the desk in which were I
the secret drawers used by Mr. White for j
keeping his money, is thusderenbed by the
I Examiner
| '• The door thai enclosed these drawers was
1 found to have been pried oIT its hinges, and j
I the drawers bore the marks of having been .
rnmnged. The lower mid larger drawers ol
I this desk, in which clothing vvas kept, had ;
evidently been examined by the robbers and
murderers, as their eontents ware ir.tteh dis- j
placed. There are no marks of blood on the
! desk, which, tit ettr opinion, goes lo show
' that there were two persons engaged in the ;
j 111 order, for no one con Id have dealt t'<e blows
! without getting very bloody. One must have
j done die robbing while the other nccont-
I plished the killing
The local press do not breathe a word of
suspicion against Mrs White, although the
truth of Iter testimony is ip estioned by the
MonotvgaltelA Jv'r/niMtVm, published in the
' same county. For want of a more reasonable
I tbooty—ot lather the absence of till material
! Irom which to form any other— he police
' and the public generally hereabouts, regard i
| Mrs. White as the murderess, or at leas; a
1 knowing who the motderers are. We have
' carefully read the entire testimony (filling
1 toar columns of the Kx-mintr.) and we can
reullv see nothing to warrant such a dreadlul
! conclusion. It does not appear that she could
have had any motive for committing the !
1 deed.
I The only circumstances which seem to
opetate against her aie, first—she got tip vjlti- ,
etiv, and passed over the toot ot the bed, so
as not to wake her husband: *nd secondly—
at vt passing into the kitchen, hearing the
noise outside and seeing the men approach
• and enter the door of her husband's room.
| she tied to Allison's without raising the least
t alarm
1 The first circumstance is very easily ex
plained—the very object she ha.t in getiiog
... ,> would induce any modest women not to
i wake bet husband.'
Her conduct m tieeing from the kitchen as
the robber* entered the room, vvi.l not admi'
1, ol so easv a solution —but whilst it s admit
-4 ted that the generality ol women would, un
[ dot s inilar circumstances, have raised an
alarm, and lematned in the house, yet surely
i; wool. 1 be absurd to conclude that because
Mis. White s\va she tied quickie away, it is
an evidence 01 her guilt Bhe might as easily
I have said, "I screamed aloud several times,
j and then tan."
The general impression here is, that Mi*
White wiilvei be arrested. Bui unlet* there
be iiuther developments, tending to implicate
! s bcr. we consider th: it would bo a gross out
,l rage to charge her with the crone. Taking
her statement as a whole, and comparing it
y wuh that of o.hcr*. it s.-cnis plausible ituough
out It is nut absolutely impossible that she
n could have murdered her husband, but to
at our view it is tar, tery far Item batingplaui-

The Unibatitlea In China.
The Crimean snuggle woke a Urge portion |
, of the civilized world from the delusion into
• which it had fallen, that "ware should be no
. more." The Chinese contest will shake mill
• further that faith in the perfection of the 19th
i century which so many entertain. Cities,
ruthlessly laid in ashes on one side, and poi
son sdmiciatered in bread on Iha other, are
significant warnings that revenge, troaclt
t ery, and other base passions reign yet ill the
i human heat!. From the Chinese, indeed,
i little else could be expected. They are — 1
, from the European point of view, at least— j
i a semi-barbario race of people, the belisvers
in a gross idolatry, cowardly, traitorous, liars,
i assassins. That they should seek to destroy, J
■ by arsenic, an enemy whose prowess they
fear, and from whose extirpation, in litis way,
no Christian teachings withhold them, is
1 nnrdly surprising, especially when we ra- '
' member that the Spaniards, a civilited, high- I
spirited people, during the French invasion, :
! poisoned the wells, in order to destroy the ;
j soldiers of Napoleon. But that the British ;
! should wantonly waste tho suburbs of Csn- '
j ton, seems, to us at least, altogether inexcu- j
1 sable and inexplicable.
1 And in this destruction, in fact, is to be
' found the solution to the poisonings at llong
Kong. Thousands of innocent families saw
their houses horned over their heads by the
j bombs and shells ot the British; sow them
| burned in a quarrel in which they had per- !
I sunnily taken no part, and lor which individ- !
, ually they were not responsible: sud their |
exasperation may be imagined. If there is j
anything which rouses the tiger in a man, it j
; is to have his wile and children driven forth i
' homeless into the world. The people ol our,
• own rural districts remember to this day, tho' !
three generations have elapsed,the atrocities '
J of the Hessians in the Revolution, and exe- '
cate lireat Britain accotdtitgly. It is almost
impossible lot a Christian and a civilijte.l
population will go. in revenge lor tne burn
ing of their homes anil household goods, and
1 their con sequent mm—especially a popula
