THE EXCHEQUER BILL.
Attu VILIAORE'S REPORT
The 'committee of Ways and Means, of the
S. House of,Representetiveta in' recomplend

• ... submitted a Report, in which the numerous de.
• . fee% of the system are fully set forth. Tito Re.
Portbriefly,considers the several modes in which
it has been , thought that the' Government might

of finance and currency: The matter effluence

The - Sub. Treasury, though The I:itt of ad - the
modes in ;mint of 'adoption-as n system of the U;
'States is the oldest in point of time es It relates
to the general subject of finance.' It 'preceded

Cy which-they furnish. Its origin is contempo

the Government in gold, and silver, and the

aro—professing to provide a safe place of deposit

• thd People. It failed in,. both particulars. :The .
Report ,'remarks; however, as a .singular fact,:
that• this univeriiilly condemned' system tins„
hem necessity,,been mere or less used from 1533
to the present time—a most convincing. evidence
that 'even State banki are - considered a safer
place of deposit than the hands of individuals.
'The United States Book 'system 'is the third
mode. BythiS the General GoVernment, instead
of employing the banks chartered 'by the . States,
• river. which it has no control, and,in which it has
no interest, charters a bank with capital
cient to ensure the safety of the public deposites,
,in which it is itself a.large stockholder, sharing
in its profits, and then directs the taxes and pub:
_ .•h e, dues to be collected in specie or the 'bills of
'this bank or other specie paying. banks, and, be
tween the time of collection and disbursement,
to ho deposited with this bank. 'this system
• • professes not onli_to_ provide a safe'. place for
keeping the public money; but also's. Booed,
form currency for the People. For nearly forty
- 'years during the fifty three since the adoption of
the Constitution; this system has successfully ac
•complished hoth of these objects.,
Until a recent period therm three modes were
the only ones sogges.ted or tried ,by_the Govern.
'ment in relation f firiailec and currency; and
the Comhdttee declare that they cannel well con
' from these three. '
. The Report next proceeds to consider the Er
•• 'chequer plan,: and quotes from the President's
Message.the portion .relating to that: project.—
neittknot recapitulate the particulars of the
plan , as they aro familiar to our readers.
It is chained fur the Exchequer that it will pro
, vide for the safe keeping of the public money ;
that it will furnish a paper circulation equivalent
to gold and silver for•the use ot, the country, and
for safe and convenient payments into the 'Freese
ry provide -to some extent the
meats of a cheap and safe exchange - in the coin
•-• -memo between the Sham It is added, also, that,
-as between a Bank of the United States. and the
Sub-Thasury, theExclicquer proposes to avoid
the objections which exist to each,. and to 'accent-
Tilsit to some extent.the good designed by both.
First, as to a, plan of sate keeping 'for the public
money, what aro the Merits of the Exchequer ?
now does it compare with a bank of the United.
The late National Bank had a capital of $35,-
<OOO,OOO. Of this, the • sum of 52'6,000,000 'be.
. -longed to individ oat stoeltlMlders, and was I pledg.
ed for the repayment of any money entrusted by
' , Government to its keeping. The Bank could not
abscond; its directors were under the eye of the
• "TiVernment. ; th - e - watelfful alteration Of mai:Trust
interest was upon them; and though they might
not be more than Government officers-hold
ing the same trust, yet with a double set of senti
. ;ids on their conduit, and n pledge of V. 8,000,0,00
as security for Government depo-ites, it is evident
that a far stronger assurance of saftly would be
afforded for the pUblic money than any that indi.
vidual officers, would furnish. In committing the
public money to the hands of its Own agents, can
the Exchequer compare with a Nntienal Bank in
;respect to the safe keeping of the Government
revenue.? Its agents may abscond, 'and the fist
liatelligenee.of loss ipay be r accompanied by the
information that (liedefhulter is beyond the reach
of apprehension, and thatfkis sureties are utterly
unable to cover the deficit: ,
The Sub-Treasury does not guard against this
danger. But it proliihitedany public officer from
loaning or using the public money in his posses
eion,whilethe Exchequer authorises its agents
to use ot loan it by 'buying drafts having thirty
. days to run: If these • drafts should not he ac.
. ' eepted and paid, the less may fall upon 'the Gov
ernment, This may happen to au honest agent.
' Tea dishonest agent a facility thus offered is
• great for defrauding the public Treasury and to
a partizun agent it thrniAex easy means i.f po
. Mica corruption. Again, under the Sub-Treas
ury, the'Government only risked such amounts
as might be iu the hands of officers between the
. collection and disbursement 'of too public . MO.
ney—say a few millions Mutually. But the Ex
.chequer, proposes to set apart five millions in ape.
..cie as the basis of a paper 'circulation of-fifteen
'These fifteen millions of Exchequer
-agents along with the five millions of specie—
making in all twenty millions. Besides this, the
' 'amount of '515,000,000 more may bo received on
'deposit in gold and silver; and money to an un
limited amount may be received in payment fur
Arens sold. If an agent be dishonest he may
issue certificates of deposit to any amount, and
abocond, with the. before detection can
.take place. Can a ,system like , this be safe— .
, entrusting as, it dues suet' . vast sums to individual
keeping, and allowing such facilities for fraud in
the sale of drafts and . the issue of certificate's,
for which the_pulilic-'freaotiry -would be- reopen ,-
. .sible? The Committee express the belief (lint
under such a system the national Treasury before
ten years would he overwhelmed with banlitupt.-
'' cy and ruin.-
The circulating medium' which the Exchequer
-proposes to tbroish would consist of Exchequer
, and certificates of deposit. Would it be
'sound end convenient?

And Col. Carter fk,urried! •Well did you ever !
it is positively overwhelmingly astounding ! Who
wiitildliate - eveultre n re - d - o r rgifth
this the haughty, daring, dashing Col. John F.
Carter,—the very Ceeurde Lion Of Bachelors!
Who that has read the'Lycbming Gazette for the
last year, would have thought that he would ever
succumbthat his pride would ever have % been
humbled "at Me Hymeneal shrine—and his
" sinking heart confess •
' The might—the majesty of loveliness !"
• But it is even so. And the event not Only
solemnly "points a moral," but is fraught with re
flections of the deepestonornent to the whole com 7
munity of bachelors,—or trite as the poor norm:-
iunates are sometimes odiously designated.—
It is an event %Odell presses • home upon every
stout-hearted bachefor a thrilling sense of the in
security of his position, and which teaches the
vaniiy of stri'ing againit 'inexorable fate; for
depend upon it, however cautiousihowever guard
ed, however fortified in strong resolutions,all these
may not avail you. "There's a divinity tkiat, shapes
our ends rough-hew them as we may !" And just
now there is a fearful epidemic matrimonial sweep
ing over the country—stalking forth like the pes
tilence at noon-day—clothed in the sighs which
float through every throng of. beauty—spreading
its contagion wherever • youth and pleasure meet
—the pathology of which wo need not explain,
but it's death to fiflielors ! It has laid our, brother
C,.1. Carter low, and it May each of you! We
might expatiate upon the subjedi at length,- a /a
Dow, jr., had wo his gifted eloquence, and time
and space, which we unfortunately have not. But
the, fate of Col. Carter is before you, and We quit' .
you will profit by it. .
A word to you, Colonel—we regret this last - cc.
centric step of yours, but us the thing is done and
the deed irrevocable, we suppose you have only,
now - to trin acid bear We know nothing
of this condugal felicity whose Elysian glories are
so much vaunted, but we hope, for your sake, they
are not solely imaginary; and that having fallen,
under the lures of the syren, you may never be
disenchanted of the bright visions which won
your soul, and know no fading 'or dissolving of

you from the peaceful paths of single blessedness.

chusetts, also thought that evil Would come of the
passage of this bill, and that it did conflict with
the treaty; One or two other Senators tookground-
n favor of the bill, and the.matter is still before
the Senate. This Measure is mord Important than
would lit first strike the mind. The claim of the
United States, if well founded, as we believe it to
be, should be onforeedlull'y and properly ;
a matter involving grave_ results, or any thing
like a violation of a Treaty=haste, petulanee,and
injustice should be carefully avoided. The North

The Otcgon country is rich and beautiful, and

valuable—no matter how extensive our claiM—we
should mot act rashly or wantonly, and in a (Nei..
lion of this sort, we are disposed to place Much
confidence in the views of 'such mcrr as Messrs.
Calhoun, Choate and Baird. to the greater part
of the Territory, the claim of the United States
is, we )elieve, entirely undisputed. It is but
to ad , that Senator Buchanan made a very inter.
estin speech, with here - and there an exception,
upon this subject a few days since; and predict
ed serious trouble in 'connegion with it. The
question is certainly ono of importance.
We firid the following remarks, in the flarris-
burg Reporter, made by Mr.. Kidder, the lucofo
co Senator from Luzerne, uPoir 1/13 prop°,
sition to give the. Banks authority to issuo small
notes, made last week in the SUnitte. We arc
glad to su t these iividences of a conservative foul
ing in tRe, majority of the Legislature i
Mr: NidJer saint was well/aware, be - ,l3irrßMs
introduction, that the proposition would meet
strong objections from loony members of time
Senate, especially that part of it providing for the
issue of small notes. Now, as the Senator from
Laricas_ter. (Mr. Champneys) had taken such an
active, part in opposition to the measure, and . had
opposed it with so much kcal, he Would • take the
liberty of asking that Senator what the principal
objections were to the measure? The notes thus
issued,-as also those now in circulation, would be
redeemable in specie. No bank could issue more
than her capital stock paid in, arid in addition the
odi. us suspension provisions would be removed
from over the banks, making them once more sub.
'ect to the laws of 'the land—and besides all this
the adoption of this meilkure would enable the
banks to sustain thernselveir durrog any period of
resumption. How, he would impfire,,did the batiks
of the state of New York. sustain themselves in
the resumption of 1841, at a time when the Penn
sylvania.banks attempted to resume, the Bank of
the United States .paid' out more specie in the
course of n few days than did,o// the 'banks in the
city of New York during the same period. NOw
the inquiry was how these banks were enabled to
maintain their position. during this period of ex
citement, anxiety and alarm? How did the banks'
of New Jersey sustain themselves? Ilow!were
the banks of Ohio sustained? The answer was
obvious to every one.. It could not be denied but.
that their small note issue was an invaluable aid.
Now sir, said Mr. K. the question is narrowed
down to this, and the conviction is daily forcing
itself upon the minds of our people, tlght unless
we do something to relieve the banks, we need
not expect them to resume for years. We must
aid thorn if wo would be aided by them. Kind
offices must be reciprocal. Dut suppose, ;ir, - we
do not aid the banks,--suppose we refuse to allow
them the privilege of issuing small notes, how
filen shall we be situated 7 Why, sir, all the
States around you dre issuing their notes of the
denomination of one, two and three dollars, and"
those notes will circulate among our people, thus
compelling us ta_pay tribute to our neighbors.
He knew there had been a prejudice against the
issue of these notes in many inindsoind_he_woulti
ndmit that even in his own district there had been
an abiding objection to them ; but ho could now
say that there had been a change in the feelings
of the community in regard to such notes.. Rea-,
son has resumed her empire, and now there was
but one sentiment-on the subject. That was in I
favor of their issue. What' had produced this
change ? Why, the community have learned that
ley must have small notes : if they have them
not of their-own, those of New York and New
Jersey will circulate and continue to circulate a=
mong them, until driven out by the issues of our
