FREE IiANKINO.—An alteration in the
banking system of Pennsylvania is earnestly
proposed. Several of our leading Journals
and financiers have already taken ground
in favor of free banks, as now in opera
tion in N. York, with State or National
loans pledged as security for the redemp
tion of their notes. The New York plan
authorises any number of citizens not less
than five, of whom a majority shall reside
in the proposed location, to form an incor
porated safety-bank, the capital of which
is regulated by law, at not more than Sl,-
000,000 and not less than 2,000,000. It
is provided that a bank commencing busi
ness under this act, shall deposite in the
State Treasury, in specie, 8 per cent. of its
' capital, which shall constitute the extent
of its liability to the safety fund for twen
ty years: This is to he invested in stock
of the United States, or of that State, or if
not so invested, shall be allowed five per
cent. interest by the State. The capital,
with the accumulation, to constitute a fund
to protect holders of bills issued under the
art from loss. No !molt, even if it has
closed its business, shall be allowed to re
ceive back any part of its contributions un
til the expiration of the twenty years for
which it is chartered. At the end of the
twenty years, the comptroller shall refund
to it its rateable proportion, and credit the
amount due to those who continue their
business for a new term of twenty years
towards another contribution of eight per
rent. then to be levied. All accumulations
of this fund beyond $3,000,000, to be di
vided annually- rateably among the banks
The subject is exciting, a good deal of
attention in commercial and business cit.-
des. and an effort will be made to procure
the passage of a free bankinglaw in our
State at the approaching session of the
Legislature. ‘Vbether the system would

; first of all, the story about
Santa Anna's being at the head of 18,000
men, amid threatening and overawing Con
gress, and the despatch of General %Vomit
to Queratarn to protect Congress, turns out
to be without any foundation.
General Anaya was elected President
of Alexieo on the Ilth in•t. lie has once
before been Provisional l'resident. His
present term of ()lice extends only to the
Bth of January nest. He is known to be
in favor of peace. in forming his cabinet
he continued Mora y Villlamil in the War
Department, and made Pena y Pena, late
the President. his Secretary or State. The
whole administration is in favor of an lion
orabk peace, and one of its first acts was
to dispatch a commission to the city of Alex
en to re-open negotiations with INIr. Trim.
The commissioners were Senor Couto,
Artistain and Cuevas, and Gen. Hinton,
the first two having been on the former
commirsion. Mr.'prist's powers had been
revoked prior to the arrival of the commis
sion, and as (;en. Scott possessed no pow
ers to treat with them, it is presumed they
were referred to our government at Wash-
The next most important intelligence
by this arrival is the reported arrestor Gen.
Worth, Gen. Pillow, Lieut. Col. Dun
can, by Gen. Scott. The, verbal report is
that letters written by these gentlemen, re
fleeting upon the commander•in-chief, have
fallen into his possession, upon which he
at once arrested them.
There is no news as yet as to the dissol
lution of Congress, in consequence of the
withdrawal of the pnros, but it appears to
be universally believed here that there is
not a quorum left, and it is said that Presi
dent Anaya has written to Gen. Rincon,
aml several other intlential persons, re
questing diem to repair to Qiivretam and
confer with him as to what steps he should
take in the present crisis.
Santa Anna has assumed the emnmand
of the army in Oajaca. lie says that he
was deprived of the command by Pena y
Pena, in order that the latter might find no
obstacle in making _ peace with the Ameri
cans. Ile avows his determination to op
pose any negotiation for peace with the
Americans forces occupying - any portion
of the Mexican territory.
The Arco Iris says that General Patter
son's division left Jalapa on the 25th tilt.
Before his departure he hung, on the 23d,
two American teamsters for having killed
a Mexican boy 12 years old.
Senor Otero brought foreword his pro-
position in the Mexican Congress for de
priving the Executive of the power to alie
nate any part of the territory of the Repub•
lic by a treaty of peace. The proposition
was rejected by a large majority, which is:
deemed a favorable omen.
By the general orders in the Free Arriet ,, ,
jean, we find that a train was to leave the
city of Mexico on the 20th ult. for Vera
Cruz. Mr. Trist will come down with

Mexican Commissioners retired at once to
Queretaro upon learning that Mr. Trist
had no power to treat.
Many members of the Congress, dis
pleased with the election of the new Presi
dent, gave up their seats, and retired in dis
gust from the city of Queretaro.
However, there remained yet more than
the fixed number, which is required to
form a quorum.

PRE SIDENT'SMEsSAGE.--The President's
message has before this time been placed within
reach of all our subscribers, and each 'ono has no
doubt given it that attention which the importace
of the subject matter, and t ho responsible source
from which it eminates, demands. Today we
foiiow it op with a Review of so much of it as re
lates to the War and its origin, from the pen of
the editor of the National Intelligencer ; and we
feel assured that no apology -mill be requisite for
the space thus devoted to the subject. The War
question ;Oust prove the great and controlling top.
is in the discussions and deliberations of the pre
sent session of Cangrek , , end, may be, the con
trolling issue in the political arena Mryears to come.
It is all important, then, that the popular mind
should at Oiler be put in the possession of correct
and just views of the matter in the commence
ment, that it may be dna better prepared to meet
intelligently the great issue on which they shall
be called upon to pronounce.
The disingenuousuess—not to say untruthfulnesa
—which characterizes the late message of Presi
dent Polk, in his argument of the War question,
must have forcibly street even the most casual
reader, at all acquainted with the facts and cir
cumstances incident to tho origin and progress
of the war. In view of the President's repeated
and re-repeated assev erations of a constant and ar
dent desire for peace—the disavowals of any inten
tion to absorb or dismeniber the Mexican Republic
by conquest—the repetition of the falsehood that
hostilities wore commenced by the act of Mexico,
-A-the artful misrepresentation of the action of Con
giess upon the bill recognising the existence of
hostilities--and other similar clutracteriatica of the
message, one can scarcely help thinking that Mr.
Polk, in preparing his argurnent, must here hidln
view-not the Congress of the U. • Stable, calla

little more than what same of our modem may

condensed and lucid from an away of farts and tir
gement/ so entirely conclusive, that'we should not .
hesitate to go with it before any 'Worn jury of the
country with the confident assurance of securing
a verdict against the President. The concluding
passages of the review, although severe—severer,
probably, than any thing we have yet seen from,
the pen of the editor of the Intelligencer—are fully
justified by the hypocritical pretensions and revolt
ing propo-itions of the message, so vividly expo.
tied by the Reviewer.
Let every Whig read it as a triumphant vindica

question. Let every one, who would have a right

mencement of hostilities, examine it seriously and
GEN. TAYLOR ON THE WAlL—General
TAYLOR, in response to a toast tendered daring
the festivities in New Orleans, alluding to his ser
vices in the field, declared that the joy and exulta
tion of the greatest victories were always, after the
heat and excitement of battle, succeeded by feel
ings of poignant sorrow and pain, and that war,
after all, was a great calamity, and his the great.
est glory who can terminate it.
This is the sentiment of the entire nation, and
we trust that the present Congress will have the
greater glory—Far superior to that which encircles
the brows of Taylor or Scott, Worth, Smith or
Harney—of terminating a war, the further prose
cution of which can add nothing to the honor of
our nation, or the reputation of its soldiers.

TAXING TEA AND COFFEE.—During
the late guhernalinial campaign, the locofoccie fal
sified the records of Congress by stating that Gen.
Invisr voted to tax Teaand Coffee, and many and
severe were the indignant denunciations which
such a supposed outrage on the "necessaries of
the poor man," called forth. Will these presses
now be kind enough to give their opinion on the
following sentence in Mr. Polk's last message: •
UP"I so SIN recommend to your . faeorable con
sideration the expediency of levying a revenue du
ty on tea and collet. Al

RATTLEt!iN AK E BITEB.—The death or Dr.
LIT, in New York, from the bite of a
rattle snake, has excited some attention and drawn
out sundry communications in regard to the surest
method of neutralizing the poison. Among oth
ers, Dr. LEE. of Hartford, (Conn.) states that he
has treated five cases of rattlesnake bites, and all of
them successfully. Ilia remedy is alcoholic liquor
—either ruin, brandy, or gin—given in large do
ses. A half pint every fifteen minutes, !flaking a
quart in an hoar, is not too much, to be given as
soon as possible after the bite. This remedy (he
says) has been used at the South to a great extent.
and has never been known to fail of a cure. The
liquor absorbs or deadens the &tat virus, and
never intoxicates the subject anions is. the virus

pi. Last week we stated, on the authority of en
exchange, that Judge Nim., of the Delaware and
Cheatre district, had .decided that Receipts for the
payment of money cannot be given in evidence,
unless accompanied by proof that the money was
paid." A friend, who thinks Judge Ni Lt wronged
by the statement, has banded us the annexed ver
sion of the matter, which we cheerfully copy :
Litzenhurg vs. Zedun.--This action was brought
to recover $75 owing by the defendant to the plain
tiff: The principal witness on the part of the
plaintiff was Charles Justice, who proved that he
had paid the money to the defendant fur the use of
the plaintilt• On cross-examination this witness
WAS shown a receipt for $3l 75, as money receiv
ed by him from the plaintiff, by the bend of the de•
fendant. 'l' his receipt was ender.ed on a memo
randum of n judgement recovered against the wit
rieS3 and others before Esquire Loughead, of Phil
adelphia, and was for the amount of the debt and
coats. 7•he witness admitted that the receipt was
genuine ; that is to imy, that it Was signed by him
to his proper hand writing, but stated that he bad
never received 91,9 money from the delimdaot
The witness was shown also another receipt for
37, but said that although the signature was
his, he did not remember anything about it.
After the evidence on the side of the plaintiff
was closed, the dniCinlant ' S counsel oll's r ed the
receipt in evidence. This was objected to by the
plaintiff's counsel arid ruled nut because the re
ceipt, being that of a third person not n party to
the caiwe, wins not of itself evidence of the pay,
merit df the money, especially as the person by
whom the receipt was given n as present in moult,
had been examined, and denied tire feet of pay

The Concert by our Mends of the Haydn Asso
ciation and Gettys Lodge Band Caine off on Wed
nesday evening, to a largo and brilliant audience.
This is encouraging, and shows the gc;od taste of
our citizens. The selections were appropriate,
and in our opinion the best that have yet been
presented to the public by the oblighig president of
the Haydn Association. But to particularize:
The duett "Moonlight's Fairy Hour" was
sung in good taste by excellent voices, and re
ceived with deserved applause.
• The song " Bachelor's Ball" was received with
much applause, and the audience testified its ap.
probation of it by requiring its repetition. Culli
vsto your voice, little one.
The doett 0 Come with thy lute to the'Foun-
Min" was given with good effect. Ono of these
ladies possesses a voice of singular sweetness,
though not of much power.
'he " Cuckoo Solo," ductt "Mrs. Jones," and
" Miller's Maid," were done in good style, as we
expected they would be, from the known musical
talent of the performers.' ,
" Worry Pekooliae' was peculiarly happy. The
professor is entitled to our thanks. With • little

and filled with contributions from the moat eminent
writers of the country.
The Second Vol tve commences with the
January iVumber, 1848
T the conclusion of the first half-year of the
0.41—; UNtost M AOAZI sr, the Publisher feels int.
polled to make some acknowledgment of his sense
of the favorable reception accorded to it by the pub
lic. Its success has certainly been unprecedented ;
and while it may be pardonable to ascribe this in
part to the merits of the work, it must not be de.
nied that public goodwill and and kindnes shave
been abundantly demonstrated. The press. in all
parts of the country, has given its voice liberally
and heartily to the new aspirant.
To flag after this would be dishonorable indeed.
It is the hope of the publisher thatthe courage and
enterprise which belong to limes, will be found
rather to have stimulated than slackened his oxen
tions. If there be talent of a suitable kind in the
country, he is determined to make it available to
the Union Magazine in the various departments.
He will continue to give superior engravings in
Mezzotint, Line and Wood, by If. S. Said, Thom
as Doney, Mr. Osborne, Robert llinshelwood, W.
8. Barnard, B. P. Chihli], P. Loomis, &c., from
orginal designs by T. 11. Matteson, who has the
sole direction of all the designs for the Engravings.
The Literary flatter will continue to be under
the etclusive control of the Editor, Mrs. C. M.
Kirkland, assisted by a corps of contributors who
arc either established favorites of the reading pub
lic or worthy to become so. Such as
L M Child, Mrs I. II Sie:ourney, Mrs F
S Osgood, Mrs Embury, Mrs Ellet, Mrs Butler,
Mrs Dana, Miss ::: , edgwick, Miss Gould, Miss
Herbert, Bryant, Willis. Hoffman, Arthur, Her
bert, 'luckerman, Sims. Dewey, Bourne, Moneta,
Woodworth, Lanman, &c. Ac.
The paper will be of the same quality non• u
sed. The Fashions will be colored by T. I'.
Spearing. There will be two pages of original
Music in each number.
In the course of as many months will be given
fac-similies of the characters used in writing 14
different languages, with a short translation into
English. similar to the Chinese and Persian odes
in the December number of the Magazine, by Ca
leb Lyon. U 8 Consul to Shanghai, China,
which, to the curious and intelligent, will be
worth at least n year's subscription to the Maga
zine. And escry exertion will be made, which
literary ability, ingenuity of Artist., and adequa te
capital can do, to make the Delon Magazine nor
thy of the place already so generously granted it
in the public esteem.
Dealers in Periodicals, who wish to become a
