APPENDIX. 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, OT) to up virli of C H,il)D in value, have h -en rejected by liiU brokers, although en I by the m ist trust-worthy Joint Stock B i ik in the Kingdom, on the ground here alluded tn. & tint those bills have been sub ; •qnentty taken to parties for the m i l >y who never would luve been applied to but lor this impediment to their circula tion ?

Through the carelessness of printers and proofreaders, iu our paper of last week, we were made to utter one of the most ridicu lous sentences that could be conceived, it is the second from the commencement of an article on cloth making' Sfc. For rulhlets, let the reader supply and for cot •' ruption, read invention. COTTON. 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 ting otit their bills on good mercantile paper, thereby considerably relieving the pressure in the matey market. Ibices may now be quoted a 9 a 9£ cents ” There is but little doubt that the hank* have it in their power to alleviate the dis tress which pervades the whole country, pro vided they will cease their shaving operations and act with the liberality that seems to characterize some of the Macon Bauks. THE LEGISLATURE. Both branches of the Legislature assem. sembled, on Monday last, at the State House, in Milledgeville, and duly organize and. the Senate, electing Robert M. Echols, <q Coweta, President, D. .1. Bailey, of Butts, Secretary, Mr. Roper of Muscogee, Door Keeper, .mil Mr. Boggess of Carroll. Mes senger. The House elected Joseph Day. ol Jones, Speaker, Joseph Sturges. of Musco gee. Clerk, A. L. Robinson, of Butts, Mes ger, and Win. Martin, of DeKalb, Door- Keeper. Asa matter of course, they are all faith ful subjects of the ruling dynasty, or else they could not have been promoted. 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 ing document. 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 recollection. 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 OLITIONISTS. Messrs Ruiz and, 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 The St. Louis Bulletin, of the 19th u't. says, 4 Col. Joseph M. White, of Florida, died this morning at the jesidence of his brother in this city. The death of Judge Lee, another ofCar olina’s distinguished sens, i> announced in the Charleston papers. Gen. Jackson’s death has been published in some of the papers, hut needs confirma tion, to be believed. Charles W. Haynes, who was lodged in the Columbus jail for the murder of his brother, some time sin-e, in Muscogee conn - ty, brokontnn Saturday night last, together with John O. Smith, charged with rnbbrrv, •Tesse Hancock, charged with forgery, and an old negro man named Jack; of whom nothing Ins since been heard. Haynes is described bv the jailor as being about 5 feet i t inches high, very high cheek bones, ra ther light enlored hair and blue eyes. Smith is a stout, ‘a ir skin Irishman, blue eyes, and weigh* shout 200 pound*. Hancock is n bont 6 feet high, light complected, bine eyes and sandy hair, weighs about 160 (•omuls. No reward is offered for their ap prehension other than the thanks of the jailor. John Chapman, who was awaiting his sentence of death, in our jail, for the mur der of liis wife in December last, brake out on Saturday night! He had complained of bad health, and was compassionately re moved by thr. jailor, from the criminals’ to the debtors' room, on the lower floor, which is more airy,—from w hich, with the aid, it is • opposed, of personsontside, he broke thro the brick wall and made his escape. He had beet; respited by the Governor from tlm “2d Match to the ?olh December next; and there is little doubt that *li« Legislature, as usual would have granted hit:.' a pardon Macon Tc'egraph. EXTRACTS FROM THE GOVERN OK’S MESSAGE. 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 of justice. I have net called a convention uft) e peo ple ol the Slate to lake into consideration rim course they ought to pursue in inain taiiitug their ri'lits, in consequence ol the refusal ol Maine to do them justice,as direc ted bv llie resolutions of tlm Legislature, pass'd at its session of 1837, for the reason, that the Legislature failed to provide Iffr the expenses of such a Convention, and bcc.vse a Convention for another object had already been called by the Legislature, and its proceedings submitted to the people for ratification. Vottr attention is called to a law which has been passed by the Legislature of the State of New York, to authorize the arrest ami detention of fugitives |jom justice Iroui other Stales, and the Territories ol the Un ited ‘states, a copy ofwhich the Legislature of New York has caused to be transmitted to the Governors nf each of the Stales, in order that similar laws may be passed by each. The ropy received at this Depart nient accompanies this message. I alto lay before yon copies of very interesting pro cceilings of the Legislature of the State ol iSontli Carolina and the State of New Jer sey, in relation to the controversy between this State and the Slate of Maine. The amendments to the Constitution, which were proposed to the people for ratifi cation, by the late Convention, have been rejected I»y the most decided expression ol public opinion. This is the second time ,\‘>at the people Lave refused to sanction the proceedings ofCeßvenli '!!*. held * H reionn the Constitut:“n; and iu hofii instances have probably been inonced to t’.e coln;? ,, IHirsu ed, hy the belief that the amendments efierff. for their approval, were intend'd for section a I temporary parlv pttrposse*. That tbe prooeon’i ,gs of these Conventions should Lave been liable to such decis ve objections, .s very m..eli to lie tegretted, since the a mcndttienls to the Constitution, which they were called to make, are indispensable to the good government of the State. The present number ol the members ol the Legislature must be reduced, and the representation ol the people equalized, to secure to the coun try a wise, economical, and just system of public policy. From whatever causes the lailnr's to amend the Constitution may have proceeded, it continues to be an object of the highest importance tot he people oflhe .State, that it should be amended According to the Constitution, tbe power of amending its defects belongs exclusively to the. Legisla ture ; and to that body 1 would therefore respectfully refer tha consideration of the subject. The necessity of establishing a supreme appellate jiuisJi tiun, in order to give secu rity to private rights, by correcting the er rors, rendering uniform and certain, and making public the decisn ns of our Superi or Courts, has been frequently brought to the attention of the Legislature, in previous communications. The continued, indeed, increasing importance Jof sncli a tribunal, arising cut of the increasing wealth and pop ulation of the Slate, and tlie enlarged value and diversity of the interests, which must of consequence he adjudicated by our Courts, nidke my justification for again recommen ding tn the Legislature the organization of a Supreme Court for the correction of er rors. Taing continued ill health tnust be my n poiogy off' lL ie (("tierfect manner in which these views are presented to the I have been prevented by the same cause from giving ail exposition of the present state of the public finances, and attempting to show 'low the millions of monry which have been received for public lands and from other sources of revenue, have been continually wasted, either bv mistaken appropriation or iinnrnvidenf management until the Treasury is not only so exhausted that j; is without the funds for carrying or, the first great "'otk which has been underta ken by the Slate, Inti a public debt has been contracted of more than a million of dollars. I must content myself with remimJ.'Pg the Legislature, that whilst for several years uj appropriations have been gr'atcr than the Treasury could pay, the general annual tax es which belong properly to the treasury, have been given away to the counties, and of what is, perhaps, still move important to be remembered, that the credit of the State has been sacrificed, and its character disgra ced. by the protest, in another State, of a debt of three hundred thonsand dollars, con tracted by the Central Bank, under the au thority of the Legislature, and which the Legislature has prevented the Bank from j |laying when due, hy requiring that its means should be applied to other purposes. The present state of the finances and the system of public revenue and expenditure hereafter, to be adopted, arc subjects ofrlia highest importance, and demand, as 1 trust they wid receive, the prompt and earnest at tention n( the legislature. About to retire from the Executive de partment, I must avail tnys'if of tli? present opportunity of expressing to you, and through you to the pooplc, my deep sense •f gratitude for the kindness and confidence which 1 have received from the country, during my now extended public life, and the strong desire which I must continue to feel that th' Government may be so cen dlieted ns best to secure the honor of llie State, and the prosperity of the p'ople.
