AUG!J N T A .
FRIDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 26.
Wc arc able, al last, to give our readers anoth
er sheet, and if the health of the city continues
to improve, we hope soon to resume, our regular
publications. The following remarks, from the
Constitutionalist of yesterday, give a correct ac
count of the health of the city. In addition to
the deaths mentioned, that of Simeon Walker
was reported yesterday.
Hsu.ru or Aiocsta, Ac. —The health of
our city is improving fast. During the last week
we have, had but lour deaths by lever to report,
vir,; Mr. John Sloan, Mrs. Gunter, Mr. Trimble,
(all residents,) anti one negro in the country;
and the number of new cases are diminishing.—
The weather has been cool and cloudy, and we
had a light rain, hut its effects on the cu'lh are now
scarcely perceptible. Yesterday it cleared of!
and the sun came out as warm as ever and il we
are not shortly visited with a good hard frost, ami
such of our citizens as have escaped so tar con
tinue their precautions, we are fearful our list
may again increase. To such of our citizens as
have absented themselves, we would continue
our former advice, to keep away until wc have a
frost, which cannot he long, us we arc in hopes
of being able in our next to give the welcome
intelligence that they can return in safety.
To our country friends who arc in the habit of
dealing in tins city, we will say they can bring
in their produce without fear of danger. They
will find our merchants prepared to receive thorn,
as the stock of goods now on hand is good, and
daily accessions arc being made.
Cotton begins to come in pretty freely, and is
selling from 11 to 11 $ for new, and in one or
two instances sales have been made at lljj for
choice Inis iir square hales. The market, howev
er, may lie considered dull, as there is very little
inducement to buy until things become more set
tled. We learn from all quarters, that this year’s
crop, as regards staple and quality, will he. us
good as any over grown.
The following is a list of deaths since our pa
j<er of sth insl. to Wednesday lust at noon.
Henry O'Neal, Resident.

We have had neither time, nor spirit, to talk of
political matters, while Enduring under the visita
tions of disease. It is loj true that Georgia has
“bowed the knee to Dual,” and elected the parti
sans of our present administration to rule over
her. Il is idlo to mourn over the result. The
people have a right to select their own law givers’
and if they choose to he governed by such a elan

them! Wo can live under any system that our
neighbors can: or (to borrow an illustration from
a friend) as an old federalist once said to Gideon
Granger, “I can live hr hell as long as you or
Is negatived by a large majority. So mote il
be. Tme, this county gave a heavy vote in its
favor; hut that was a mere matter of accident.—
No interest was taken in the question, as our
people, generally, had hut little choice between
the obvious evils of the present system, and the
gross injustice of that proposed. The tickets of
both parties were printed “Ratification,” that
each voter might prefix "No," if he thought pro
per: and very few thought any thing about it.—
Wc do hope the time is not far distant, when the
good sense of the people will lead them to see
the absolute necessity of reduction, on a plan
not founded on sectional or party intcicsts.—
Whenever such a plan can be submitted to the
people, it will certainly prevail: and it xriU ho so
submitted, when the people will send delegates to
a Convention, elected to servo the Shite, and not
The Boston Transcript says—“We learn from
a friend in Boston, well acquainted with the
Canton trade, that the American interest in the
opium allair is $1,350,000.”
Yaj.e Collkok.—The present number of stu
dents in the different departments of Yale Col
lege is about six huudred and fifty —a greater
number than at any former period.
Ohio Elections.—The Ohio Statesman slates
that the Administration party has succeeded by
an increased majority in that State. In the Se
nate the parties stand: Democrats 32, Whigs 8;
6 districts to hear from. In the House 40 Demo
crats and 13 Whigs; 20 to hear from.
Medical College of Georgia.
Wc arc requested to state, in answer to the
enquiries addressed to this city on the subject!
that the Lectures in this Institution will eom
nißnce, as advertised, on the second Monday of
November next. The Trustees arc now engag
ed in filling the vacancy occasioned by the la
mented death of Dr. Antony, and of which due
notice will be published.

Institution, are. respectfully requested to notice

Til V. ItUESTIO.V SETTLED, —TllO following
letter, published in the New York Courier and
Enquirer, of the 13th, will show which party
has the majority in the Vermont Legislature.
Mo.vreKLiEii, Vt. Oct. 10. 1839,
The Vermont legislature assembled this morn
ing at 10 o’clock. The test of the House was
the election of speaker : which is the first busi
ness after the house is called to order.
The members elect are 331 ; absent, 4.
Whole number of votes for speaker, 337.
The result of the ballot was for
Carlos Coolidge, of Windsor, (Whig) 110
Paul Dillingham, (Tory) 109
V'iiig majority, 7
In the senate there are 18 wliigs to 13 lories.
W'hig majority 0
The ascertained majority for Governor Jcni
son, (whig) and other State officers, is 3351 ; a
«nlli< iently large majority for all useful purposes.
The falling off in our vote is to he attributed
merely to the over confidence of the wliigs, and
their consequent inactivity. We shall give the
larger majority on this very account for the can
didate of the Harrisburg convention—whoever
he may be of the individuals now prominent be
fore the public.
The Bank or the United States and the
Pahih Bankehh. —Tlio following paragraphia
from the New York Express:
Only one Bill of flic United Stales Bank lias
been returned to this country, and that was a hill
of ninety thousand francs—less than twenty thou
sand dollars—which in the negotiations ul Paris
slipped hack to this country, and was instantly
paid by the hank here. All the oilier lulls have
been accepted, and wc know that those on Franco
will he met. Those on England arc accepted,
and it is believed they will he paid. Since the
acceptance, over two millions of dollars have
been sent forward to meet them. It is now slated,
and by authority, that Hotingucr &. Co. of Paris
were hound by their agreement to honor these
drafts. If tills he true, their want of good faith
lias beep of incalculable injury to the institution
and to llie public.
Rumors arc again current that Mr. Woodbury
is about to leave the Treasury Department. No
occurrence would give greater satisfaction to the

The Harrisburg “Keystone,” after announcing
the suspension ofthe Philadelphia Banks, says—
We understand, that in order to prevent the
issuing of small notes by irresponsible corpora
tions and individuals, which produced so much
inconvenience and evil during the last suspension,,
that the Attorney General, by the direction ofthe
Governor, will forthwith issue a circular to all his
Deputies throughout the commonwealth, direct
ing immediate prosecution to be instituted, in ev
ery ease where the laws suppressing the issue of
small notes may be violated.
We have since received a copy of Gov. Por
ter’s letter to the Attorney General, which we an
Executive Chamber, Harrisburg, 7
October 10, 1839. $
To Ovid F, Johnson, Esq., Attorney General of
the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
Sir:—The suspension of specie payments by
most, if not all of the banks of this common
wealth seems likely to produce the same debase
ment and derangement of the currency of the
country, that have attended the same occurren
ces on former occasions.
The several acts of assembly prohibiting the
issuing and circulation of notes, tickets, and other
papers of the similitude of bank notes, under the
denomination of live dollars, afford ample protec
tion to the community against the evils arising
from this illegal and spurious currency, if pro
perly enforced. The only defect in these laws is,
the omission to enjoin the duty of enforcing
them, upon some particular officers of the com
To this omission it is probably owing, that
these salutary laws have been practically disre
garded, and treated as a mere dead letter. As
the Executive of the commonwealth, bound to
“take care that the laws be faithfully executed,”
I feel it to be my duty in this emergency, to pre
vent as far as possible the violation of these laws.
1 owe it. to the people of Pennsylvania, whose
dearest interests arc involved, not to shrink from
the performance of this duty. It is my desire,
therefore, that you, as the proper officer, should
immediately adopt such measures as you may
deem best suited to the attainment of the object
in view, to wit: the entire suppression of all notes,
bills, checks, tickets, and other papers, of the si
militude of bank notes, or promises to pay mo
ney or other things under the denomination of
five dollars, from being issued or circulated within
this commonwealth, so tar as the laws in relation
to the subject furnishes adequate powers for that
It is proper I should state that, in directing this
proceeding. I do not intend or believe that it will
operate to shake the confidence of the public in
the ultimate ability of most, if not all of the
banks of this commonwealth to meet all their ob
ligations and to redeem their faith plighted to the
community; nor do I think it will throw any ob
stacles in the way of their doing so; on the con
trary. I firmly believe the expulsion of all small
notes from circulation, will tend more directly
than any other measure that can be now devised,
to protect the public from frauds and imposition,
and to enable the banks *o fulfil their respective
The circumstances by which wo are surround
ed will doubtless lead to the cultivation of a spirit
of mutual forbearance and moderation on alt sides,
as the course best adapted to restore a sound and
healthy condition of affairs. Every attempt to
aggravate existing embarrassments unnecessarily,
should be discountenanced by all cool and reflect
There is, beyond question, abundance of specie
in the country to fill all the channels of domestic
circulation, without distressing its private holders
or the banks, and as the suspension of specie
payments by these institutions, cuts off a great
portion of the foreign drain upon it, it must readi
ly find its way into the hands of the people.
Respectfully yours, &c.
DAVID R. PORTER.
In compliance with the above proclamation,
the Attorney General has issued a circular, ad
dressed to all the Deputy Attorneys in the Stale,
instructing them to institute proceedings against
all persons or corporations whatever, who shall
issue any substitute for money of a less denomi
nation than five dollars.
Flouh koh England. —The New York Post
states that orders for flour received by the steamer
Liverpool are to bo executed, notwithstanding
the advance in price which has taken place in
that market since the receipt of the news respect
ing the unfavorable prospects of the harvest in
England. Upwards of 12,000 barrels will bo
shipped this week. Should the next accounts
from England, of the corn crop, be equally unfa
vorable as the last, the shipments of flour from
this country must be very large.
It will he seen by our Report (says the Balti
more American 19th) of the Baltimore Mar
kets, that the advance in the price of Flour, since
this day week, is just one dollar per barrel, and
the advance in Wheats from seventeen to twenty
cents per bushel. These are excellent prices for
the farmer, and should stimulate him to send his
grain to market with all reasonable despatch.
Line of Packets between Charleston
an n Liverpool. —We perceive with gratifica
tion and pride, from an advertisement in our
columns, this morning, that a line of packet ships,
owned in Charleston, to run monthly between
Charleston and Liverpool, is to be set in opera
tion on the Ist of February next—so that on the
Ist of every month there will be a departure from
Charleston for Liverpool, and on the 15th of
every month a departure from Liverpool for
Charleston. The ships to compose this line are
the Chicora, and the Thomas Bennett, both built
in this port, the Liverpool and the Medora.—
May they have rich freights and be wafted by au
spicious breezes across the broad Atlantic ! The
merchants, who have the honor of originating
this patriotic and public spiiiled enterprise, arc

Destruction ht Fire of the city of
Quihiio, on the Spanish Main. —The Ja
maica Royal Gazette of August 31st, contains
“By papers from the Spanish coast, intelli
gence has been received of the almost total de
struction by fire ofthe city of Quibdo, capital of
the province of Choco. The event took place on
the sth August. The ruin and desolation caus
ed with the short space of three or four hours,
were truly deplorable, thousands of comfortable
and wealthy families having been in that time re
duced to a state of utter destitution.
Special Election in S. Carolina. —An
extract of a letter, dated Barnwell Court Honse,
October 10th, published in the Charleston Mer
cury, says—“ I send you the result of the elec
tion for a Member of Congress from our District.
The vote is the smallest ever polled in the Dis
trict:—Butler, 1142 ; Jamieson, 220; Caugh
nmn, 44—total 1406.”
Health of Mobile, —We have no improve
ment to report in the health of our city ; although
we do not yield, to a very pievalent impression
that the malignancy of the epidemic increases.
As we remarked in our Prices Current issued
this morning, which will be found in another
column, undoubtedly much sickness has been in
duced by the fatigue and exposure to v hich all
have been subjected, still it is found recovery
very generally supervenes. We would continue
our caution to distant friends, not yet to think of
returning. The interments during the past
week to include the 18th were 24, the whole
month to include the same 73.— Mobile Chroni
cle of the 19 th.
We have information which states that seven
thousand regulars are to be sent to Florida,
among them the eighth infantry and a large por
tion of the artillery arc to go from the northern
frontier, aad likewise the second regiment of dra
goons. General Taylor has been authorized to
send to Cuba for a large number of bloodhounds.

Commerce of New Orleans. —The com
mercial year in New Orleans ends on the 30th

Note—lt will be observed by the above state

It will be seen also that we have deducted from

It must be difficult to determine, how long our
staples can sustain their present prices, under the
severe pressure in money matters which now par
alizes and perplexes every department of trade,

extremely dull, and the few sales made have been
at a reduction of * a * ct on the prices current last

suspension of specie payment by some of the

by buyers. Liverpool advices per steamer Liver

which we have heard of but few transactions.—
