PInitBURGH, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 1,1843
As..errittuteticran.- - During.tbe late campaign, we
'on ;enteral occasions exposed the dishonesty of the an
'dmaittlillt leaders of she city, and showed clearly that,
otrattathelautaing their loud professions of "distinctive
aMbiletsotuy,' they had time after time united with
she, "masonic whigs" and sold the intlurMce of the bon
ed until:salons to advance their own principles of
grasping cupidity. We predicted that if the whigs
should poll a pretty strong vote at the election, that the
*blue nose leaders, maugre all their denunciation of the
masonic whigs,"l would abandon their relay uoi
101 into the support of Grand ,Master CLAY. In no
ticing our prediction, the tottimasoni: organ could
scarcely find language in its vocabulary vile enough to
denounce us as calumniators. Nothing was further
from its thoughts than to cwaleice with the Clay whigs:
it was fixed on the platform of distinctive antitnasonry,
and from that position it would not recede one inch.
We, of course, did not believe this; we knew that all
the ranting of the editor was merely to force his party
to swallow the bitter pill the city clique had prepared'

B KOTLI DI AMA.—[he Indiana State Sen
tinel of the 21st says:
"The Board of Directors of the State Bank at their
meeting last week, by an unaninmus vote, directed
the suspension of the Lawrenceburgh Branch. It is
oncWstonsi that this Branch has in repeated instances
ilisregaided the provisions of the charter, and through
the influence of he suspended dAt, its situation Las
been deemed unsafe, and its prospects of tisefillness
very limited. Col. A. C. Pepper. P. L. Spooner, and
H. IC. Hobbs, Lairs, were app dated Receivers. The
raper of the bank will be redeemed with specie as
Iteretofore at its counter, and received as usual by the
"rother branches. There is sonic mason to believe,and
it is to be hoped that this suspension will be only tem-
P° 1111 7."
This measure, if may judge from the tone of th e
papers, is craving s good deal of excitement a moug the
people of Indiana; and will no doubt cause some anx
ility in this city, and the towns, adjoining; where the
note's( that bank have heretoforecommanded a prem
him of 1 urn per cent, for the ordinary currency. The
seasons assigned for closing the Branch are, that it has
failed to make its 6 per cent the last year, and that its
tamers on several occasions have exceeded their pow
ers and.violated its charter The papers, however, in-
Shit SOW) other causes have induced this step.—
The Lawreaceburgh Beacon sounds the alarm in the
folkiwing style; we give its article without comment,
and every one may judge fur himself as to the condi
tion of the bank:—
"We have no doubt but the officers of some of the
branches, and perhaps old Nick Biddle, jr., from In
dianapolis, will be in Cincinnati and Louisville to try
and persuade tho bankers and brokers in these cities to
trust the State Bank of Indiana a little longer, and
sing the syren song theta is-a:cll. We say to thern,and
to all, and what we say we say advisedly—look out,
these is ruin—there is danger in the State Bank of In
&alma- She is, in our opinion, unsound, rotten and
corrupt—aye, even to the core."
And . again, in another article in the same paper,
headed "State Bank of Indiana." the editor anyst—
flit institution is on the eve of a general burst-up and
blow up. Wo conceivo it is a ditty we owe to the
public us warn them of their danger; and to caution
itheuanotto trust too far to this concern. We feel au
thorised to say, that from our own personal knowledge
tints condition, it is very little, if any better, than was
the ?ate Bank of Illinois just before it exploded; with
a ctrenlation exceeding two Millioll4, a suspended debt
of a million to a million and a half, with laws that I
prevent the collection of even good debts, how can it he
expected that it tan weather the crisis T With some
eight or ten thousand dollars in specie, and, perhaps,
two hendred thousand dollars in bank balances to meet
those liabilities, it is utterly impossible fur it to stand,
unless the public aro willing to take their "pr 'see

Henry Clay is to present a harmer to the state that

to make a bold stru4gle for the banner. Among other
things, they resolved at the meeting shut it is "ea pe
client to ensure the attendance of twenty thousand
count men nt the said convention." Where the '20,000
young. men, in favor of Clay, can be found within the

not ',allure that a muter of all the Clay men in the
state would amount to once than half the nurnl.wr re

“At the present term of the Circuit Court, in the
case of the State Bunk of Indiana, vs. Sikhs Bowers
and others, a very impertant decision has been made.
which we deem it proper to give to our readers. The
Court has decided that on a bill of exchange drawn 011
a la•rsoa residing in this State, payable at New Or
leans, damages of five per cent. against the rirawer and
endorsers, arc not recoverable under our net of the
Legislature giving damages on protested bills of ex
change in certain cases. The principles involved in
the present case are as follows:—Bowers, residing in
Parke outlay, in this State, drew a bill for $2.100, di
meted to himself, at New Orleans, payable nt tlw Com
mercial Bank in five months after date. The bill was
protested for non-payment; and, in a subseggent ar
rangement between the Bank of Terre Haute. (the
holder of the bill) and Bowers, by which he paid part.
and gave Ilk negotiabla note for the residue of the bill
with interest, cost, iftmages, &c., the Bank charged
COI damages, wider the. Act referred t o. There
were several renewals, and on the last note given by
Bowers, this snit was brouaht. The defendants,

collected by the Bank were nut collectable by law; and
as they had been wrongfully exacted, they should IK•

From his having made the Spanish language the

Of his competency to tend, French there can b,• no
doubt, from the fact of his having been a cler! in a
Notary in Purls, where he has studied law. What Mr
