There were mnny distineuished aad patriotic m;n in Congress who earnestly believed that the great, it not the sole, evil of the currency was to bo toond in its redundancy aloi e. And reason ing trom this promi'i'’, they inferred thu a cor responding reduction of this large volmne ot the purcha.HiD!; uicdiuxa, wv)>ild produca an immediate reduction in the prioo of all saleable eomniodities. Others eutertainod a difl'crent opiuion, and, be- iieriag that tho purchasing ^wwer and value of those notes had a critical and sensitive dependence npon the eonlidenoe and ^ood will of these who were called upon to exchange their substance tor them, insisted that a reduction of the quantity, by any measure that di»turbcd the coniid«Doe of the people in the good faith of the Government, would lead to tfbiversal distrust aud stili greatc-r dep*'eciation. The majority was, unhappily, found to be of the tirst opinion, and it must now be univeraally admitted, I think, that tho pulioy that prevailed was erroneous, and the consequences precisely such as had bt'en predicted by those who opposed it. The immcnso rednotion elFected by the tax of por eent’. levied upon the curreaoy, and by the process ot ooiupuUory funding, produced very little elf.et upon the pricos ol oymm>dities. Everybody regarded, witn diitrust, a new issue of notes of the .same character as the lant, and resting for their support as a circulating inodium up.>n the f»amo pledges which had ended in disap pointment before That thi« is the true difficulty we have to cn- oountcr, I think every candid person mu^t allow, and I cannot refrain trom indulging the hope that a new and eoua«^cr policy wrl govern our future legislation Too patriotisia ot Congress is not to be called in questioa, nor are we at lib erty to Qoubt thei’ willingness to reoounoo any policy thal may be proven by experience to be errOH^Ujt ;U)di i ' iMme time, should not be silent; anu iu tnis re spect th« patriotic cUisons of tlie great aud suf fering U9miiionweahh of Virginia have act a no ble example. On my arrival in Ikichmond I found that the CommisaioQorji of prices had fixed tho schedule rates for wheat and corn at 930 and 8-4 per bushel respectively, for the months of Au:^ufltand September. The feeling of disippointmont and alarm with whioli I was inspired by this cireum stance, you can easily imagine. This painful feeling was, however, soon changcd for one ot renewed eontidence and hope by the tarmcrs of Virginia. Public meetings were held in the ag ricultural couutica and resolutions adf’pted bold ly avowing the jmpossibiiity of maintaining the public faith if the Govern men J were forced by the people to pay such prices for supplies, and patrioticaHy insisting upon a reduction of the standard rates, and their ciitablitjhmcnt upon a basis sufficiently low tc inspire confidcuco in the currency. The result wa.s that the Commi.'wion- ers reassembled and reduced the schedule prices toS7i for wheat for the month of August and fd' Ssptember. A wiser and more pa*^riotic coune was never pursued by any people, and 1 would rosp3Ctfully appeal to you as the Chief Magistrate of our ga'lant and patriotij S^atc, to suggest and encourage similar meutiug') and resolutions on the part of our own people. 1 have an abiding coafidcnce that a general and well established belief in the intention of Congress under no cir- cumBtanc's of temptation or trial to shrink trom the observance of the most rigid good faith io the mon^y dealings of the Qoveroiaent, will en able as to overcome all our financial difficulties. That such is their real intention I cannot doubt; hut this determination should be eno''uragcd and supported by the public declarations of our peo ple, expressive of their own resolute will to foster tho credit of the Government by the establibh- mr'nt of low prices, and by the patriotic support ot ita Treasury. WhAttver differcnoes of opinion may have existed in tho past, or whatever errors m*y be supposed to have been oomrnitted, *rt%j now be buficd in a eon^tnon grave. We are making a new start in our fiaances, and nnder oiroumitanoo8 by no means unfavorable or dis couraging. Tho expenditures of the Government are of two classes—those incurred abroad, and those in ourred at home. In respect ot the first, there has hitherto been but little embarrassment nor is there any reason to expect greater difficulty in the future. Our foreign supplies will probably be procured wi^out making any addition to the pubhc debt. Tho malice of our focp bute' to this reform.

On Friday the fleet ran by Fort Mor gan. Captain Vas.t had s fins view of the whole soene, and the Mubaequertt naval fight. The T**cumseh, the fincdl monitor in the Yankee navy, went down almost instautly, a tremendous column of water being thrown up around her—evidently the work of a torpedo Her commandcr, Craven, was lost in her, for tbe yankee truce boat inquired if he was among our prisoners, and finding he was not, they said he went down with his shir. [The same monitor which had shelled the fort Irom the Gulf side, now approached to within li&if a mile of the wharf and opened again. There «'as but one 10 inch gun left to fight her, and the carriage of that gua tmi>n beijamc unsafe. Oo WofineBJay uipbt, the Yankee troops, esti mated from 3,000 to i),000, landed on the Island and gratiually approached to within 400 yards ot the fort. Tbey bad been confronted from tbe trout by a lino of skirmishers thrown out from the fort. The enemy had planted their batteries or iig'ut Parrott guns on a sand hili near the Gull shots, c.nother mid-way of the Island in front of the fort, and a third on little Dauphin Island. Thetie, with the monitor in the water front, were enabled to bring a fire to bear upon every part cf the Wi>rk, and with the aid of Bharpsho’>tcTs, oT;r men were not able to stand at their guns. Ttio bomb proofs wera only capjtblo of oov rijg men out of the garrisou, t»>o rest were exposed to bombardment. Up to the time Capt. Vass left, the commander, Col. Anderson, had said nothing about capitulation; but he saw sigas of demoral ization in the garrison. Some of the officers ex pressed decidod opinions in favor of surrender they thought the placc would be taken aud there would be a frightful waste of life to no purpose. The men saw little or no hope of relief since the Tennessoe was lost, and they much exhausted by skirmishing all day and working in the tort at night Capt. VasB states that up to the time he left, Col. Anderson behaved with great resolution and spirit, gallantly exposing himself and urging his line of skirmishers to maintain its ground. It was tbe night after Capt. V. left that Gen. P»ge psssed over to Fort Gaines. Capt. V. is of the opinion that Fort Morgan will hold out as long as i»s provisions do, and that will be tue b“^t part ot a ye.ir.
