A Scissorlm Editor.
Tha editor of the Miltoninn says that some grace
Ins aramp entered his office and atole hia scissors.
Thia ia a sad dilemma for an editor to lie placed in.
An editor unscUsortd ia something like a dragoon
unhorsed. He can make but little headway against
the ranks ol his opponent. Without thin foiuiida
ble little weapon, what would become of the cutting
atire and biting earcaam of hia columns. Let the
editor of the Miltonian, however, console himself
with this reflection, that no one can hereafter justly
accuse him of having introduced into his columna
CXJ" The friends of the defunct Dank Bill are not
without hope. The President's objection, are chief
ly confined to the unconstitutionality of a Dank of
discount and deposit e with branches. He atatca
unequivocally, that as long aa the 13ank of the U.
.States conGned itself to discounts and depositee, the
country was not benefitted by its operations, but
that when it engaged extensively in exchange, the
currency of the country became sound, and "the
no'.es of the Bank were regarded as equal to specie
all over the country." The President is evidently
inclined to favor an Exchange Bank, and we have
no doubt from the appearance of things, that auch
i Bank will be established, and receive the executive
sanction. Such a Bank would be much less objec
tionable, and in our opinion decidedly preferable.
An efTort will be made immediately to establish such
Bank, as will I seen by the following paragraph
from the TJ. S. Gazette:
"A friend, Who is intimate with the most dis
tinguished mrml-ris of Congress df 'both parties,
writes to us as follows: 'I am perfectly satisfied
that Congress will not rise without passing a law
crenting an Exchange Bunk, and that the President
will sign it. I would ad vine you, as a friend and a
whig editor, to treat the veto leniently, it being
merely a difference of opinion amongst brethren of
the same principles."
An Kxcellent Suggestion.
Mr. Liroao, of the Baltimore Commercial Jour
nal, suggests in his paper of Saturday last, the e
stnblishment of a national depot for coal at Baltr
more, and urges the extension of the Tide Water
Canal from Havre de-Grace to that city, in order to
afford the utmost possible facilitica for the transpor
tation of the Pennsylvania cnal to the aforesaid dc
pot. There ia much of practical wisdom and fore
sight in the project. Baltimore, aa Mr. I,, remarks,
is situated at the head of one of the best estuaries in
the United States; is accessible at all seasons; is
but a short distance from the ocean t has a moder
ate tide ! haa a safe and open bay without shoals 01
rocks 5 and is near the national seal of government,
with which it ia connected by an excellent rail road.
It is therefore, saya Mr. I.., "the very place" for a
national establishment of the kind proposed, as it is
a point well protected from the enemy, and will he
easily reached by the war steamers of the Home
Squadron, as well aa all other vessels propelled by
steam, and consequently using coal aa fuel. To
Pennsylvania the proposition ia very important, as
the coal must come from the mines of our State,
which find their outlet to market through the Tide
Water Canal. Pa, Intel.

Prohibition of Shin-Plaster t
Onu F. Jormsow, Esq., the fearless and faith
ful Attorney General of the Commonwealth, in
compliance with previous instruction from the
Governor, haa re-issued strict and positive instruc
tion, under date of the lOlb inst , to all his Depu
ties throughout the State, to proceed according to
law against '.bore indiviuuals and corporations, who
continue, in violation of an express law, to issue
small notes aa a currency. This is perfectly right,
and aflords a gratifying evidence, that under the
present State Administration, these violators of the
law can expect no shadow of support or counten
ance, however largely they may have been indulged
under the administration of Joseph Kitr.er, John
Banks and Co. The following ia an extract fiom
Mr. Johnson's admirable circular: "Not even the
ahadow of reason can be alleged to exist now,
(whatever might once have been pretended) to ex
ruse the violation of these aalutary laws. Ample
provision haa been made by the General assembly
of thia Commonwealth, for any supposed necessity,
that may have arisen requiring the issue of notes
of a less denomination than five dollars, and the re
is therefore no ground to apprehend the slightest
inconvenience, from a speedy and thorough aup
prssion of these small notes which have been put
into circulation contrary to law. If we expect
to retain, for the purpose of business the specie
now in tho hands of the peop'e, even for transac
tions of a less amount than one dollar, wo must rig
idly and rigorously persevere in the enforcen.ent of
the penalties against those who manufacture and
circulate a depreciated worthless substitute. Small
notes of the several denominations of twelve and a
ball', twenty five and fifty cents, are rapidly insinu
ating themselves into the place of specie in those
counties where they have been unfortunately intio
duced, and unless checked, will soon expel it en
tirely, frcm general circulation. However contra
ry to law, and depreciated in nominal value they
may be, it is exceedingly difficult to rid the public of
them, when once they have acquired a foothold.
It ia the part therefore of wisdom and of duty, to
atrike at those who issue and circulate them, at
once and in earnest." Yeoman.
Gov. rotter has instructed the Attornney Gene
ral, Mr. Johnson, to commence prosecutions again-t
all corporations not authorised to issue small notes,
after the 10th of September. All persona or cor
porations known aa engaged in the issue or intro
duction of the small nites of other States, will also
recti) sjiecial attention from the Attorney Geneial
or his Deputies. Dicknell's Reporter.

Imprisonment ofan American Consul.
Captain Merriman, of the barque Iria, at this
port, from Matanxae, gives information that Mr.
Crofa. the American Consul at this port, had been
incarcerated in prison by order of the Governor of
Cuba. The cause ia nol stated, but whatever it
may he, it is a bold move, and one which cannot be
passed by our Government without notice. We
are informed by a gentleman, long a resident at
Matanxas, that Mr.O. was remarkable for his mild
and amiable disposition, and moat unlikely to give
clTences to the authorities of the island. A former
consul at thst port (the late Mr. Shoemaker,) also
met with some indignity in the early part of Gen

taken in band by him. and brought belote the no

BANK BILL VETO.
During the discussion at 12 o'clock) the Private
Secretary of the President appeared st the Bar of
the House with the Fiscal Bank Bill in one hand,
and the Message of the President in the other.
The appearance of the Secretary excited some in
terest, and a breathless silence follpwed.
The message was placed in the hands of the Pre
sident of the Senate, and the Land bill laid upon
the table, when a new order of thing unexpectedly
There was a disposition on the part of some one
or more of the audience to give demonstrations of
approbation or diaappiobalion at the course of the
President, when Mr. BENTON rose with feelings
of immense excitement, and cried aloud that he had
come to the Senate thia morning expecting that tho
President ol the United Statea would be insulted
by Bank Ruffians. I knew he would, said Mr.
Benton. I felt it. I told my friends so. It has
come just aa I expected juat aa I predicted. Mr
B. concluded with a motion to arrest the offender.
Mr. PRESTON joined with Mr. Benton in a
call for a rediess of the insult. He did not hear the
hisses, but supposed they had been heard by others.
Mr. RIVES asked the Senator from Mo. to with
draw his motion. Ho waa sure that he had heard
no hisses, and many Senators around him had
heard none. He begged therefore that if they had
been heard, the Senate would be content with the
70.000 CXpressjon 0f opinion on the part of the Senate

Mr. BENTON said in reply, "I heard it. I heard

occasion," he said, "I did distinctly hear a hiss, but
at the same time I am bound to say it was neither
long nor loud. I hope the Senator will withdraw
his motion, and that the Senate will proceeJ to the
business of the day."
Mr. BENTON I never will, ao help me God.
Mr. BUCHANAN I had rather the Senator
would withdraw, and then the important business
oft he day could be considered.
Mr. MERRICK said it is true, a said by the
Senator fioui Pennsylvania, that this is a solemn
occasion a very solemn occasion and therefore it
was that he was averse to spending the time ef tho
Senate in a matter so trifling.
Mr. KING hoped the Senator would withdraw
