We anuex aa extract from the London
“Banker’s Circular” of the 6th July last,
in proof of the direct unfavorable action ol
the Btnk of E igland, on all bills which
could be trac'd to any connection with Cot
ton. It it were pertuissable in a document
like this, to speak of the declarations o!
individuals, the statement of the hit'll!) rcs
j.ectaide and intelligent Editor of the -Ban
kers Circular ’ (one of the ablest commer
cial paper*iu Europe) might he confirmed
in a manner which would render hi* deduc
tion entirely undeniable. In lecd, the w.ole
number of the 6th Julv. is marked not a
lone by great ability, bur by mud. liberality
tow irds our country, and is pregnant with
a vast fund of information connected with
the American Trade :
**P, S. It is notour practice to allude
to anything that may ha said of this pub
lication. If it were, we s mold nt the lime
have notic'd the fact of three distinguished
members of the House of Commons belong
ing respectively to the Whig, Radical and
C mservative parties, having borrowed it bv
quoting from it with approbation in the tie
bate on the Corn-laws. When, however, a
man in high authority, like the Uovernor of
these Banks, impugns any statement of
ours, we are compelled, out of deferential
respect to onr subscribers, to rc-nssett the
the thing impugned or to retract it. We
do the former. In the Circular of June
gls r , we gave, ina condensed form, the im
pression made on money and commercial
nlFaits. by the extraordinary measure of rais
ing til' rate of interest by the Bank, to
per cent. It so Inpencd that we were not
:i".pi linte l with that pro.-'eding until one
o’clock on b'ridav. and therefore, we could
da no more. T.tii co:i lenseJ statement
was, on the succeeding day, a subject of
conversation with a bill broker, inferior to
n inn in sagacity and efficiency, aril he de
liberately pronounce I it to lie aernratc,
although he is in the habit of taking excep
tions if Iu perceived a word too strong or
too weak relating to tn in ,4 y matters.
‘ Tiu particular part of the statement
which Mr. Woolvcrly Atltwood honored by
leading to the H uise during the debate on
Mr. Ilumes motion on Monti.ty Inst is mark
ed No, 6. (-1 tine til st, ) and the tcoventor of
the Bank asserted, and that in the most em
phatic manner by repetition, that that eor
poration had no such intention as is therein
set faith. We would ask, by way of re
affirming the paragraph, how it comes to
piss, that American bills, or bills suspected
of having their or.gin iu the cotton trade,
are by some lea ling brokers, as a matter ol
rale, charged a half per emit, more than
other nil sos no Inglur character not en
cumbered with that suspicion? Do not
those shrewd parties allege as a reason far
this a iditinnal charge, that, in the event of
wanting to use such bills in circulation, th y
might probably he enabled to procure the
money from the Bank of England? Is it
not t fa::', that the bills of the character
described, of all amounts, each from Cl,

The Macon Telegraph of Tuesday last,
says:—••Cotton has materially improved
since our last. This is not owing to any re
cent news from abroad; but simply to the
fact, that two or three of the Banks in this
place have “taken the. responsibility” of let

thereby considerably relieving the pressure
in the matey market. Ibices may now be

THE GOVERNOR’S MESSAGE.
We have barely had time to glance at the
Governor's Message—from the little, how
ever, that we have seen, we recognize in il
the purest sentiments and the most whole
some recommendations. It is written in
Governor Gilmer’s usual business-like style,
and is withal, a very important and interest
It only remains for the Legislature to car
ry out li s recommendations, and the pre
sent session will be of more benefit to Geor
gia, than any other of which we have any
A small portion of the message is extrac
ted in today’s paper, to which we invite the
attention of our readers—next week we will
publish it in full—till then, wc have not time
for further remarks.
DARING MOVEMENT OF THE AB
Messrs Ruiz and Mot.tz, of the Island of
Culm, who were overpeweretl by their own
slaves on board the Spanish schooner, Ainis
tad, au I after end tiring the most cruel tor.
Mires, were rescued from their perilous situ
ation by a United States ship of war. are
now suffering incarceration iu the common
jail of the city of New York, each under a
civil process, one issuing from the Court of
Common Picas, and another from the Su
perior Court, tinder a charge, emanating
from two of their slaves, for “imprisoning,
beating and wounding them.’’ —joint dama
ges laid at 3000 dollars.
This is the most bold and daring move
ment of the Abolitionists of which wc have
ever read. Not satisfied with endeavoring
to wrench from the hands of Messrs Ruiz
and Montz, their just rights, they have in
duced thpse ignorant Africans, who are en
tirely unconscious of the obligations of an
oath, to commence this new suit against
their masters, that they (the Abolitionists)
may satisfy their hungry desires, by seeing
a slave holder confined within the walls of a
prison house. At the head of all this mat
te: we recognize the celebrated and infam
ous Lewis Tap pap. What could the offi
cers of the law b«en thing of, when they
administered the oath* nee*j**rv to the in
stitution of these Suits, to the unlettered and
ignorant Africans, who know as little, we
presume. ol the English dialect, as they do
of the nature and obligati ons of an oath.
It seems not a very hard matter, however
tor them to overleap the bounds of duty, if
by so doing, they can get a slaveholder with.’
in their clutches. If Messrs Ruiz and
Montz can be incarcerated in a dungeon
upon tite oath of an ignorant African, why
may not a .Souther., slave holder be also ar
rested and imprisoned upon the affidavit o>
in intelligent slave of his own, whiletravel
ing in any of the non-slavaholding States 7

EXTRACTS FROM THE GOVERN
The late suspension of specie payments
by most of the bauks, affected so generally
an t to such an extent, the interest of the
whole community, as to call for the decided
interference of the Legislature, to prevent
tHe injurious consequences which may fol
low from !*• The precccding suspension
of specie payments by the Banks, found it?
justification in the extreme cecossdj? w hich
•vas created by the sudden revulsion in trade,
and generil loss of confidence in commer
cial transactions, which succeeded immedi
ately'after the excessive issues of the Banks,
w hich had been called for by overtrading,
on the part of the merchants, extravagant
purchases upon credit, and living beyond
their means, by he people, and the spirit of
speculation w liich pervade ! the whole coun
try. It gave to the Banks the me: ns of af
fording the usual facilities for business, and
at the same tune of gradually curtailing their
discounts, so as again to resume specie
payments without great pressure upon their
debtors ; and to debtors tlic opportunity of
making pavilion's by time, industry and
economy, without the ruin which would
have been the consequence to many, of for
ced collections immediately after the pres
sure too., place. The present suspension
has been made under very different circum
stances; and if permitted to go unnoticed,
by the Legislature, will tend to produce an
insecurity and vacillation in Bank issues and
credit affecting most injuriously the relation
of debtor and creditor, and the general
wealllt and prosperity ol the community—-
The conduct of many of the Banks shows
the slight control which the obligation to
perform their contracts lias over them, and
the probability that they w ill use the oppor
tune’" wtiielltlie suspension gives them, of
making pro iff from it unless restrained
by efficient l.i.vs. Whilst, therefore, I
would recommend that all the Batiks sljnu! •
be permitted <o retain their charters,
whose icjiurts show that their business h.T
been conducted with ordinary caution, anil
regard for the rights of the public. I deem
it very important that the Legislature should
impose such conditions noon them as will
prevent their making excessive issues; spe
culating in cotton or other productions; or
selling specie; and force them to resume
specie payments as soon as the [.resent em
barrassment in the money market in those
countries with which wc have commercial
dealing* shail have passed away.
They should be required to make quar
terly reports to the Governor, showing their
condition, and exfiibifin* the amount of
their liabilities, and the specie in their
vaults. The conduct of several Banks
during their previous suspension anil since,
proves the propriety of subjecting them t<>
increased penalties for issuing change hills
or notes under five dollars; and of compel
ling them by the same means, to pay their
five dollar notes in specie, when presented
to ihcin for payment in small amounts. 1
The Bank of Darien and the Bank ot
Borne suspended specie payments, and stop 1
ped discounting, in tho early part of the 1
year. The loss which has been sustained
by individuals and the public from the
depreciation of the bills ot these binks,
render it the duty of the State to enquire
into the causes es their failure, that such
remedies may lie applied as will guard the
community from similar losses hereafter.
As the failures of the Darien Bank have
most probable proceeded from its having
been in the hands of Directors appointed
bv the State, who have had little or no in
terest in its safe and profitable management,
I would recommend either that the charter
of the bank be forfeited, or that this State
dispose of a large portion of its stock, so as
to place the direction of the Bank in the
hands of those who will have a strong in
dividual interest in conducting it properly.
1 regret to inform you that the Legisla
ture ot the State of ylaihe has declined ta
king anv measures to give satisfaction to
this State, for the violation of its constitu
tional rights, by the refusal of Governor Dun->
lap and Governor Kent tir deliver up to its
authorities u[*on their demand, the fugitives
from its justice, Pbilbrook and keiieran.
You will pereeive from the proceedings of
the Legislature of Maine, at its last session,
that upon reference to it of all the docu
ments in relation to Philbrnok and Kellerau
it contented usell hy resolving that the whole
of that subject was exclusively sithiu the
province ol the Executive Department, and
that it was inexpedient lor the Legislature
'o take any order in relation thereto, not
withstanding that the Legislature had pas
sed a law at its previous sesssion, defining
the power of the Executive Deparment in
arresting and delivering up fugitives from
justice, from other States, and evidently
with the view of justifying Gov. Dunlap in
his previous refusal to deliver up Pliilhrook
aud Kellerau to the authorities oflhh Sta e.
This conduct of the Legislattne ol Maine
and the previous conduct of Governor Dun
lap and Governor Kent, prove conclu«ively
that the opposition to the institution of
slavery is so great among the people of that
■State, that their public authorities are pre
vented from ob* ytng the injunctions of the
UoiMtitulNin «f the United States, when re
quired to deliver ufugitives from justice
charged with the crime of violating the rights
of property iu s'a»es. This State must there
fore protect by its own authority, the rights
of its citizens it slave proper's- against this
disposition of Maine, to violate them. For
this purpose, ym will be justified iu declar
in' by law, that all citizens of Maine who
may come within the jurisdiction of this
State, oil boavl of any vessel as owners, of
ficers. or mar tlets, shall lie considered as
doing so with the intent to commit the crime
of seducing negro slaves from their owners,
and be dealt with accordingly by the ollicers
