Tuesday, March 27—6 P. M.
Monetary affairs are now in their crisis.— 1
The elements in every part of the country, j
from New Orleans to Boston, are in motion.
From Boston we have intelligence that their
hanks -will meet our hanks in the Convention
to he held on Wednesday, tlie lltii of April,
and will then Ie ready to agree to a positive
and distinct day for the resumption of specie
payments. At New Orleans similar prepara
tions are maturing to recover confidence, and
to bring about an early resumption.
Yet these, coupled with the course of events
in Washington and Piiilade plea, have pro- •
duced so much agitation as to cause a fall in
fancy stocks, while we perceive an evident
revival in general business. Phamix Bank
fell to-da v in the street, although at the Board
ito sales were recorded at the first meeting.
Though stocks and speculative business feel
depressed under t‘e agitation in money af
fairs. the real business of the city, founded on
tinyf) rod nets of the country, is rapidly ('merg
ing from the stagnation of winter. The East
India trade, the shipph g business, the cotton,!
naval stores, arid other lines, are rising into
momentum every day. The dry goods busi
ness is, however, much depressed; but this
arises from the action of the Southern hanks
in the cotton market—the derangement of
the exchanges produced by that action—and
the general mismanagement of the years 1535
and ‘33. not yet recovered from.
We have not seen for months pasl.sonruch
excitement in the high financial circles—hut
it is the excitement of recovery, not of de
The Sub Treasury bill, as passed in the
Senate, and the refusal of the Philadelphia
hanks to resume with ours, still continue to Ire
great tryves of discussion.
Os the modified Sub Treasury liili. no one
can fi>rm a decisive opinion. It varies with
the hour. Further intelligence from W ash
ington must he received before a positive
■opinion can he made up. One ihmg, how
ever, is certain—the divorce of government
from hank, and the hard money policy have
received tire entire coup dc zrace. Whatever
policy nnv Ire adopted by die government.in
the collection of the revenue, it is certain that
iIT financial action will not he separated from
that of the banks and a redeemable currency.
If (he present bill, as read a third time in the,
[Seilafe, should be defeated, the government]
will be thrown back upon the law of 1835. |
which makes it it obligatory to use the stale
hanks to receive their currency, as soon as ;
they resume specie payments. A few days
will terminate this stale of uncertainty.
In tire meantime, it is now contended that
in spite of tin* refusal of the Philadelphia
banks to join ours, in favor of a resumption,
the n**w position of the government will cause
Mr. Biddle to pause and review his past
course. In 1536, in bis famous letter to Mr.
Adams, he stated that the repeal of the specie
circular, and the receipt of bank currency for
public dues, would restore repose to the
money market in tvvenly-limr hours, and con
fidence and prosperity in as many days. We
conceive that the recent vote in the Senate
has placed t!>e Government in the position
described by Mr. Biddle, and we are prepa-
red, thereto e, to look for a change of policy
in the Philadelphia banks.
On the subject of resumption, we learn that
our ablest financiers are decided!y against
any further extension of the suspension law,
believing that they will be comjjetent. at the
Bank Con veil i ion, to meet on Wednesday j
after next, to name, in conjunction with the i
Boston, the day lor a positive and unequivo
Such is the situation of money affairs here.
The very co ifusion and crisis cause excite- j
ment and agitation.

Agreeable to a notice given at the last
meeting of the stockholders in the Chatta

iGeorgia, the stockholders met this day, and
j organised by calling the Hon. J. S- Calhoun
to the Chair, and Thus. G. Gordon, Sec’y.
On motion, toe Secretary read the charier
of the Chattahoochee Railroad and Banking
Company of Georgia.
On motion, it was
Ordeeed , That the stockholders be called,
and, upon examination, it appeared that 10,-
•2f>s shares were sub scribed, and that there
tvi re 8,465 shares present and represented.
On motion of Wiky Williams, the follow
ing resolution was unanimously adopted :
Resolved , That the stockholders in the
; Chattahoochee Railroad and Banking Com
pany, now in session, proceed to the election i
jof seven Directors fur said ‘companyand,
on counting out the ballots, it appeared that |

The spirit of interna! improvement, which
! seems at the present time to attract the peo
- pie of Georgia, notwithstanding the pecuniary
iembarrassments under.which we labor, can
not fail to be gratifying to every patriot; and |
i the successful execution of the various pro- |
’jects contemplated, will place the State of
, Georgia upon the high and elevated stand
occupied by some of her enterprising sister
Slates, find a fiord to her citizens die-commer
cial facilities, the want of which, hitherto, has
been an immense loss and inconvenience to
The project for the execution of which the
Chattahoochee Railroad and Banking Com
pany has been formed, is not among the least
jof the great plans, which it is believed will
j benefit the State generally, and those par
| ficularly who may participate in it. The
| State of Georgia has commenced her great
i work in earnest, and upon her own resources,
I giving to her citizens every assurance that it
will he carried out in good faith. We there
i fore apprehend that we risk nothing b\ lay
; ing out our work so as to connect with hers,
fl is not to he concealed, however, that the
work in whic i we contemplate now engaging,
is n vast and important one. and vv li require,
not only ihe close attention and energetic ac
tion of tin* officers of the company toi nsure its
‘successful termination, hut'nlso the co-epera
tiori ami liberal support of the stockholders.
Division of sentiment, even upon small and
unimportant matters, may cause a failure,
whilst nothing is more certain than that a
i unity of action, founded upon patriotic prim
i ciples. must result in complete success to the
j company, and in great benefit to the com trv.
j Be it therefore Resolved. That Ihe stock
holders in the Chattahoochee Railroad and
Banking Company look with confidence to

to insure the successful termination of their j

Columbus, Ga., 241 h March, 1539.
Gentlemen —Your communication in re
lation to the organization of he Chattahoo
chee Railroad and Banking company is be
fore me. I can but fee! exceedingly grati
fied for this kind and voluntary tender of so
important a trust, more particularly as it is
Irani so respectable a source, and those for
whose good opinion I entertain the greatest
respect. But permit me, at the same time,
to say, that it presents tor my consideration
rather a delicate q testion.
By yielding my assent I must necessarily
abandon a position in another institution,
which I have long and agreeably held ; a situ
ation to he surrendered with the more reluc
tance, having been identified with its admi
nistration from its commencement, and expe-
rienced, during the whole period, nothing but j
kindness from the present as well as former
stockholders ; one, too. which would probably,
at all mnes, contribute mme to my personal
:comfort and pecuniary interest.
B it as mv principal ambition, however, is
to be useful, and regarding the enterprise re-j
le'Tcd to as being particularly identified with
the interest and prosperity of our city, as weil
as the western part of our State, it it is be
lieved I can contribute any tiling to the nc
complishmsnt of so important an object,a con
sciousness of duty and obligation to this com
munity will not permit n e to decline the of
fer it’ tendered
Be pleased, gentlemen, to accept for your
selves. as well as those you represent, a ten
der of mv grateful feel nos and respect.

j FEBRUARY TERM, l>3B.
WE. the Grand Jury, sworn, chosen and selected,
have entered upon and endeavored to discharge
the duties imposed on us, endeav ring to estimate the
responsibili’ies growing out of such duties. AY c have
made an examination of the books of the Clerk of the
Superior Court of Ordinary, and cheerfully report
them in a condition of neatness and correctness, saying
on,eli for his character and qualifications for that office.
The h ><iks of the County Treasury together with all
the information necessary to a fair and full investigation
! and understanding of them have been befijre us, and
we feed it our duty to assure the public of the correct
ness of its nianagemen’, an I the faithfulness and ability
with which its incumbent and scharges bis duty. The
same examination has been had of the books of
the Inferior Court, giving equal satisfaction. The
present indebtedness of die co nty, together with the
necessity of building a Jail (which we recommend at
j as early a day as possible.) justify us in advising our
Inferior Court to the assessment of Taxis to the limit
of the law. A\ r e regret that there are those among us
not willing to yield to the law of the coun ry ; an au
thority having for i’s o’j *ct the good and happiness of
all its ci’izens and therefore deserving the highest re
spect—and the painful duty of expressing our opin en
that such offences, instead of being less frequent, are
shameful! • increasing, a fact calling upon our commu- ;
nit v to assist the lega’ atithori'ies in arresting such evil,
n whatever might be the energy of the law. or fui h
’ fulness of its administrators, they must be inefficient ;
and in vain e anticipate an improvement in ‘he morals
and habi's of violators of the law and common peace of
the conntrv’ without such aid. The definitions of such
garn-s at cards as have been made by rur Legislature,
i-> the stn'ntp upon tha’ subject, are so easily ex
changed for others bv those whose shame i 1 is to gam
ble that if is m our opinion, an appendage to our penal
code almost, if not altogether, inoperative. A\ e re
gret this of our law. and think we aie allow
ed from the t nnortance of die subject, to.say to those
J who mav renresent. ns in the next Legislature, and to
! all who mav feel in’erested for the public good, and the
j happiness of the rising generation no place of escape
j shall be allowed any who shall dare a violation cf the ‘
I law upon this subject. Upon this important matter
I ivc-claim the right of instnic’ion. An-1 can ive have a
! reoresentati n who will not heed such m ’ruction ?
] How easy can-such names as Drag. Bluff, Sic. be |

To show the standing of this medicine, the following

from the numerous letters received by the proprietor.
The following extract is from a letter franked by a
member of Congress:
“ Washington, 241i Jan.. 1835.
<l Will you have the goodness to send me a dozen of
the Indian’s Panacea? lam requested by one of the
party of the delegation of Cherokee Ind ans to procure
ibis medicine for him. they having found advantage
from it heretofore, and bt-ing unable to procure it in the
District. J. F. CALLAN.”
“ MoNTQOMF.nr, Ala., 22d Oct., 1835.
*• Having nearly closed the lot sent [l2 dozen] \vc
will thank you to send us 24 dozen more by first vessel
for Mobile. We think very ■ ell of your Indian’s Pa

“ Please send tnc 20 dozen Indian’s Panacea imme
diately, the demand being so great we shall be out be
fore we shall receive next gli.pnnent.
“ WOODRUFF & WATKINS.”
“ New Orleans, 20:h April, 1837.
“ Your last shipment of 50 dusr.cn lias come to hand,
which is considered sufficient sot tlie sea-on. As my
orders show, the sale of your Panacea is fast increasing
in this part of the country, and I nm-t sav i’ gives ge
neral satisfaction. H. EONNABEL.”
“ Natches. Miss., 28tli LUc., 1837.
“ Mr. D. G. Ilaviland, Sir—lt is with pleasure we
give the opinion entertained of the Indian’s Panacea in
this city and vicinity, and can say, v.i iever its combi
nation, we know of no medicine introduced to public
patronage so worthy of the high charac’er it lias sus
tained here. We ate acquainted with persons who
have thoroughly tried it in Chronic diseases, Scrofula
and Mercurial affections, with entire success, and take
great pleasure in forwarding, at their request, the certi
ficates of cure of several of them. ‘lt has been pre
scribed by the faculty in many cases, meeting their en
tire approbation ; and. indeed, such is its popularity,
we have calls for no other P nacea.
“ McGRAW & PULLTNG,”
Many more letters of similar purport are at hand,
but we will close with extracts from a letter from Dr. i
Wiiherspooii, giving a case of a member of the Lcgis j
lalure of South Carolina.
“ Sti.MTEitviLi.E, S. C., 24di Aug., 1837. ‘
“ The gentleman in this village whom the Indian’s !
Panacea cured had Mercurial diseases, and no! Rheu- j
imidstm However, the cure it effected with him was ]
most obvious and remarkable and, beyond all doubt, it j
preserved the life of one of our most useful citizens. !
Asa consequence, it has acquired great celebrity in this I
section of the State. A great deal is used, and nmnv j
