OWLET/3M SMITH, EDITORS •ND PROPRIETORS 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' fork, and frit after the election they would be willing I CISCINNATI. — The Enquirer sayst—Few are aware Writ, iof the extent of the book-trade and its branches, in our to sell their influence to the Clay whigs torn very small There are upwards of twenty bookstores, inelu. consideration, or for no consideration at all.

Such is the manner in which the city leaders wishto make the honest antimasons of the coon- Ay, articles of traffic, and they are willing to sell them tosny moo or any party that will aid the office hunting leaders to crawl into good fat places. But we do not suppose that th! hia-st antim wins oldie, county will ratify this bargain, by which they are tobetransfeml to the Whi g ., and to humbly fol low hereafter the dictation of the "masonic" leaders. The treachery of the city digee will prove to them, thatthere is no h mesty ju th in Alves of the prominent brawlers fur antimasoury, and we have no doubt but 'hey will take the first opportunity that may offer, to let %Ise political cheats know the ,letestationin whiclt they hold such treacherY. 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 to pay" when there is nothing to pay with.

FUNN Y.-Thp National Clay Club held a meeting ou lust Saturday evening, at which some very amusing resolutions were adopted. It appears that the Clay C 0011.4 haven project on foot to hold a mass convention of young men, at Baltimore, in May next, and that Henry Clay is to present a harmer to the state that will seed the largest delegation to said convention. Our boys have got their spunk up and they arc determined 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 1 territory of Pennsylvania is a mystery to us, fur we do not ',allure that a muter of all the Clay men in the state would amount to once than half the nurnl.wr re quired to attend the nut's conven;ion. The only mole by which they cra hope to fill up their delegation, is to employ the pipela)ers and yarn m weliancs, %Oa r.,..:l.l2re.l'snch efficient service in 1340.

LATE FROM SOUT II AMERICA. The following in an extract of a letter, brought by he I:unonuo, dated No political new, of importance here. The Not th ern part of the Province of Pernambuco is threstened with it seri••n. outbreak and rebellion, principally among the miners and hunters, who are dicitTected with the laws. The mines are lying idle inconatnnence and no wild cattle hue been taken in fora mouth; hides are therefore scarce in the iwighborhuod. Trueps are getting ready to proceed there and protect the laws. under order of tlw Emperor. The Commercial Trade of Bahia has greatly in ' creased within the last ,ix months, And there are as many as forty square rigged vessels in the port, which is more than have ever been known to be there at one time before. 'The slavc•trtde is carried nn here to a greeter extent than at any other port in South America. There are at present three slave schooners in the harbor waiting orders, one of which arrived a week ago with a cargo of 350 slaves on hoard, all of whom are now far in the interior. It is proper to state that this schooner and its cargo were owned by an Englishman. There are doubtless more vessels id - this description in the hum bnr which arc unknown. Some infurmatien had arrived at Bahia from the Southern piirt of Brazil, but Wine of importance, except what has been received before. Accounts from Rin Grande were unfavorable to the Rebel cause. The Rebel army, after having collected 10 to 1:2,000 men from the Western part of the Province marched to wards Rio Grande. and were met within ten miles of the town by the Government forces, which nearly doubled their number, and were entirely routed by them. It is not probable they will be able to collect such a force togetheragain, although the attempt will doubtless be made. There is nothing of importance from other portions of the country. It is generally quiet, while business is dull.—N. Y. Tsitnote. The Wabash Express, of the 15th list., published at Terre Haute, Indiana, says:— “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, mom: otht•r matte, s, insisted that the tin zungeA thus collected by the Bank were nut collectable by law; and as they had been wrongfully exacted, they should IK• deducted Iron this note. die amount of which was uu c.isiutied, in part, by the damages aforesaid.” It strikes u= that we Live rarely, if ever, rend of an incident -Interim; MOS , true genet osity of spirit than the übjoined, which is copied front the Montreal Trans- ACH pr.
