mark that thip great increase of gold coinage
is beginning to awaken the inquiry as to
what is to be the effect upon this great stand
ard of value, as compared with other coins
or circulating mediums.
The effect of this superabundance of mon -
ey on the business affairs of the country is
already being manifest. The signs of the
times, it seems to me, indicate very clearly
that we are approaching a period of more
than natural prosperity, resulting from this
excess of money. The mania which pre
vails fur all kinds of business and projects of
improvement, which require the investment
of large sums of money, is the evidence of
such a tendency ill our monetary affairs. If
then, we are tp take counsel from the past,
and the iadications of the present, we must
believe that this abundance of currency will,
of itself, produce an inflation of erices and
lead to speculation and prodigality. But
such artificial prosperity will be of short du
ration. The re-action will as certainly come
as that the sun will continue to rise in the
east and set in the west : and, unfortunately,
when it does come, the innocent and unwary
who have made least in this game, are forced
to suffer most. Is it wise, then, in full view
of such unmistakeable indications, to hasten
this state of affairs, aggravate the evil by an
improvident increase of paper money ? Shall
we so far forget the severe lessons which
have been heretofore inflicted upon this no
ble state? I must not. Ido not say that
it may not be proper at some future time to
charter new banks at some of the points in
the State, where it is now proposed to locate;
but I most sincerely believe, and I express
this belief, with the utmost deflerence to the
views of the General Assembly, that the pre
sent is not a propitious period for an increase
of banking capital. Let us first see what is
to be the effect of the increase of gold coin
age and the abundance of money to which I
have already alluded. It is prudent, at least,
to remain on the safe side of this question.—
There is no danger of the real prosperity of
the State being retarded for the went of
paper money, and I have never known the
people to sutler from such cause. Our cur
minty is now as sound as at any other period
in the history of the Commonwealth, and
her prosperity and growth resulting from the
energy, industry and enterprise of her peo
ple, equal to that of any of her sister States.
Artificial means to impruve this fair condi
tion, might readily produce the reverse re
I think the aggregate banking capital of
the State large enough, and that of the whole
country too large-- - much too large for the
welfare of those pursuits closely pressed by
foreign competition. But the great moneta
ry movement, which ; at this time, would
seem wise and necessary, is not within the
control of a single State. If this were so,
and Pennsylvania were that State; I have no
hesitation in saying, that I should not, during
my official career, sanction the charter or
re-charter of any bank. It should be my
purpose to reduce rather than increase the
paper circulation. But a single member of
this confederacy can do but little morn than
show a good example and in • ite imitation
on the part of sister States. Situated as we
are, therefore, we can only make the best of
the circumstances which surround us—re
strain the evil and promote the goods so far
as the influence of the State may go. ,
I have not beets insensible to the force of
the reasoning in favor of establishing bunks
in particular localities, as a medium through
which to conduct heavy business transac
tions, and I.should not object to institutions
for this purpose with all the attributes of a
bank, except the right to create paper money.
It is urged, also, that certain localities need
what are called banking facilities, that are
now without such accommodations, and that
some, or all of these bills, are only intended
to littera to such places that whieb has been
already exteutled to others. l am free to ad
mit that there are loCalities titus situated,
and that it is iinended, by the bill in gees ,
tion, to supply some of these, and were it
practicable to afford to them theso facilities
without increasing the present amount of
paper money, or in other words, if this end
could be accomplished by taking from
ties that now manifestly have too much, the
evils of an increase of banking capital, which
I have suggested, could not apply But it
cannot, to my mind be justified, that any in ,
convenience suflered by certain krealeies,
should be regarded as paramount to the
portent considerations that seem clearly, at'
this time, to weigh against any increase of
the paper medium of the &ate. This com
plaint my be gradually set at rest hereafter,
should the considerations against an inciease
of capital continue, by refusing to recharter
banks in localities where there is an excess
of such facilities and distributing them in
other quarters. But in this the utmost care
will be necessary, for we have learned by
sad experience, that it is a dangerous policy
to locate these institutions in a region of
country greatly deficient in capital. I need
not call to mind the numerous instances in
which banks, thus located, have misled the
business community, by their promises to
pay without a dollar in their vaults, and then
exploded to the vast injury of the people.—
These are so many arguments to sustain the
truthfulness of this position, and nothing but
my unwillingness to execute unpleasant re
collections, restrainsame from pointing out
the particulars of some of these occurrences.
But I trust they may not, on that account,
escape your reflection. A bank created for
the use only of those who desire to become
borrowers, will not answer.. The mere
corporate franchises cannot give it all the
elements of a good bank. The patrons of
such an institutions must put money into its
vaults before they can draw any out. In
other language, if a particular locality be
poor, it will not be made rich by the posses
sing no better qualities than the right to
make paper money. There must he not on
ly a necessity for such institutions, but legit
imate business and wealth in such locality
to sustain it, or the probabilities are that the
result will be disasterous. It is not always
a good argument in favor of locating a bank
at a given point, to say that it is difficult to
get money lu such place. That may be the
very reason why public interst and safety,
would forbid such location. Besides, It is to
this difficulty, to a great extent, that this
.commodity is indebted fur its value. I am
quite sure that if it were made sufficiently
abundant to answer the views of some poli
tical economists, it would neither be valua
ble nor useful. The advantages resulting to
the particular localities in which these insti
tutions are found, are as a general principle,
greatly overrated. I can bring to review in
my mind a vast district of the State, embra
cing some eighteen contiguous counties, all
flourishing and presperous, in which there is
not to be fotind a single bank of issue, and
yet I do not see that these are less prosper
ous than counties favored with many banks.
A number of the counties, within the range
to which I refer, were at one time favored
with banks, but these institutions have failed
and gone out of existence, and I cannot per
ceive that such counties are less flourishing
than they were when their respective banks
were in full operation. This seclusion from
banks, it shotild be remembered, is not with
out its advantages. The people of such re
gions are perhaps fully rewarded for what
they suffer in indonteuience, by the protec
tion they thus enjoy from the force of com
mercial revultions. What they loose at the
time of a back expansion is more than made
good to them•by their escape from the full
force of the contraction. A little reflection
on the occurrences, (luring the periods to
which I have repeatedly mado reference, will
satisfy any one that this is no trier° fanciful
idea but a clear practical truth.
I have thus, gentlemen, performed what I
regard as an imperative duty. Should sub
sequent events demonstrate that I have erred,
I shall at least have the consolation to know
that such error is of the head and not of the
heart. WM. BIGLER.

Death of Judge Coulter•
It becomes our painful duty to announce
the death of the lion. Rim:atm COULTEtts
one of the Judges of the Supreme Court of
this State, lie expired at his residence in
this place, at half past ten o'clock on Tues
day evening, last. Judge Coulter had
been in attendance at the sittings of the
Supreme Court in Philadelphia, far a length
of time, and arrived at home on Friday
evening last, having been unwell before he
left the city. A total prostration of all his
physical energies seemed to ensue soon af
ter his arrival at home, and under which
he finally sunk.
In the death of Judge Coulter, the State
at large has lost a most valuable public
officer—one whose place will not and can
not, soon be filled. As a sound jurist—a
guardian of the rights and privileges of her
citizens, he had not his superior, perhaps
not his equal on that Bench. On him es
pecially, might Western Pennsylvania rely
with safety. For his ever watchful eye—
his untiring energy, never left a case, or
point in law, in which her citizens were in
terested, without examining and probing it
to its deepest depths. No earthly power
could deter him from the strict and exact
administration of justice, in all his decisions
on the Bench—to the humblest citizen of
the Commonwealth, no less than to the
most powerful monied monopoly of the
But his death, at this crisis, will not on
ly be an irreparable loss to the community
at large, but also to his friends and ac
quaintances in the home circle. Whether
as a private citizen, or as a professional
man, he was ever found to be the poor
Judge Coulter filled many places of hon
or and responsibility,, in his life; but he is
gone now, and lamented too, by ail. But
we arc utterly unequal to the task of wri
a befitting eulogy upon his character.
May the mantle of his virtues fall upon ma
ny others ! Westmoreland Intelligeneer ?

like white lead acts destructively on the iron; in
fart this Paint snakes iron doubly valuable tbr

CAPITALISTS 1111,1 BUILDERS are invited to
make strict scrutiny into the merits of these
Paints. They will find a very great reduction
might be made in the cost of painting. These
Paints are purely mineral; all clays and other
impurities are washed out in preparing them for
the market. They cost but Wiliam price of white
lead, and the same quantity will cover twice the
surface, and lust six times as long, which in fact
reduces the price to one-twelfth. Climate has no'

cold Catntdas or our sunny Florida.
DIRECTIONS.—USC Linseed Oil, mix as thick
as you can, and use as other paints. These Paints
need but little dryer, told for priming and second
coating in all housework they will be found far
cheaper and more durable than lead.
