The Message. We heard the Presi-

Thc fiscal ajrent, which it
has cost so much labor to bring forih, will i ty consider the greatest blessings a Na
cost the public quite as much to become ac-j tional debt and a National Bank. They
quainted with, from the lineaments por-want the first as a foundation to the last; &.
trayed by the parent in the Message. It '
is the most noeiess monster vve have ever
seen. It has no handle to its face no point.
It has no head; and what is as bad, in this
case, it has no tail to it. It is, loo, without
an eye to sec its way in the world, for the
fiscal agent as presented by the message, j
the reader will perceive has all its eyes put
out by the lather. It is ''monstritm hor
r end urn cui lumen adernptum." The
recommendation of the new bantling, be
gins by declaring that a Bank of the Uni
ted States had nut only bt en condemned by
thetwolast Administrations but that they
had been supporicd by the people in its
condemnation, that the people had condem
ned the State Bank system also, and final
ly a constitutional Treasury, or. as it is
called in the message, the Sub-Treasury.
This Sub-Tieasury is, in fact, nothing bin
a government Treasury ; and according to
Mr. Tyler, then, the nation means to get
rid of a Treasury of its own, and resort to
sjme other Treasury no its own. The only
three modes of keeping the public money
yet tried, havingall been condemned by
President Tyler, the eye of experience is
put out. Surely there was reason to expect,
that he would open the theory. But
he does not give us the light of philosophy
to keep us out of the darkness in whHi ihe
message involves every thing. It recom
mends a fiscal agent but what sort of a
fiscal agent the President saith not. The
Senate would have been left in this utter
darkness, if Mr. Clay had net come to the
rescue of the bewildered body. He rose
and gave notice that he would on to-morrow
move for a special committee to report
upon that portion of lhJ message which re
commends a fiscal agent; whereupon, Mr.
Merrick, Senator from Maryland, inquired
what sort of a fiscal agent was meant. Why,
said Mr. Clay, in reply, mean a Runic
ofthe United States." This explains the
whole matter. The under President, for
Jsuch Mr. Tyler certainly is, has not ven
tured to siy what he proposes, because he
simply proposes to adopt whatever charter

altogether inadequate, and yet he is in fa
vor of giving away the public domain to the
-iaies, anu suorirests whether it would not
be well to give it twice first to the fiscal
agent, that it may profit by them; ami
'hen the fiscal ai;'inl to make partition a
nvmg the coparcener States. The divi
dends, after passing through this mill, and
paying the requisite toll, would, we suspect,
turn out about as much to the States, as the
Biddlfi Bank now distributes among its
stockholders. In addition to this mode ol
depletion, the message proposes vast ad
ditional appropriations!! How is all this
tobe provided for without breaking down
the compromise act, or the creation of a
public debt? yet against this latter expe
dient, the President embraced a still earlier
occasion his inaugural address to pro
nounce most emphatically.
There was one mode through which the
President mijht have attempted reconcile
such inconsistences, mat is oy proposing
economy; but he has cut himslf oil from
this, by proposing increased expendi
tures. W e are mortified to find no retrench
ment of expendituie, nor any economy rec
ommended inessential partieulars.The great
burden of the song is, additional appro
priations additional and increased expen
ditures. He and his Secretary of theTreasury seen;
to have found little or nothing of the mon
strous arrearages, and forty millions debt,
which rung so loud in and out of Congress
But they spake of an increased expendi
ture for the year of six or seven millions
beyond the estimates made by their prede
cessors. This has been effected by appropriating
near two millions more last winter than the
annual estimates; by calling an extra ses
sion to cost another million; and by asking
for two or three millions more of appropri
ations of this session for army, navy, pen
sion, and other purposes.
Again, they spake of a reduced revenue
of four or five millions, which their own
friends have produced by causing the
banks in the Midd.e, Southern, and VVest
crn States to resume, and by aid of the enor
mous frauds and corruptions in the man
agement of the United Slates Bank, to in
jure business and credit, so as to reduce
imports and the sale of lands far below
what tht y would otherwise have been.
Secretary's Report on the Rank, &c.
We publish to-day the Repoit of the Sec
retary of the Treasury. It will be seen
with what anxiety the report presses to-
wards two objects, which the Federal par-
both are favorites with the money dealers.
The one furnishes a line held wherein over
grown capitalists, weary of business pur
sniis, can make safe investments, upon
which they may repose free from taxes
themselves, while the Government sweats
the brow of labor to pay tribute to them.
The other is the great leeoer oi active
speculators who gambol (to drop the fig
ure, gam ble) on the ups and downs of the
ocean of stocks, the expansions and con
tractions of banks. The President has
selemly declared, and for years back acted
on the principle, that a National Debt and
National Bank were the greatest curses to
the country. Yet we find his Secretary
recommending bothll Why do we not
hear of that regular retrenchment which
has been going on, pari passu, with the
extinguishment of the Indian claims for
lands'purchased from them, and the gradu
al cessation of that drain to suppress the
Indian hostilities, which was the conse
quence of the policy adopted to relieve the
States of that savage population? Why
are not these lands, which cost the General
Government such vast expenditure, when
converted into money, applied to meet the
increased demands on the National Treas
ury instead of being applied to contribute
a drop in the bucket to the payment of the
interest, &. so to raise the value of the almost
unextinguishable State debts, and make
them the moie unextinguishable? Instead
of retrenchment and economy, as promised
by the ptesent reformers at the head ol the
Departments, we have new and extraordi
...,r n . Ik for annropriations, while at the
mo time we have the alienation of one of
the constitutional sources of revenue pro
posed, and in lieu of it the suggestion of
increased taxation, which must bear une
qually among the Slates. Superadded to
all this, is the establishment of a national
debt, the greatest of all taxing powers.
The pretext that a national debt now ex-
Ms, which mn st be funded, has no founda -
tion but in ihe wish of those who would
create one. The measures proposed bv
Mr. Woodbury in his last report to Con
gress as Secretary ofthe Treasurv, togeth
er with the rapid reduction of expendi
ture, practically exemplified in every suc
cessive year of Mr. Van Buren's adminis
tration, would meet every claim againsi
the Goxernment as they arose and leave
no apology for the funding, taxing and
banking, which Federalism now seeks to
fasten as a permanent policy upon lhe Go
As regards Mr. E wing's Bank argu
ment, we meet it with the admirable .pa
per put for-h by the Democratic party of
ouh larolina, and adopted in the great
est, popular meeting ever held in Charles
ton. We have never seen a more clear,
true, comprehensive view of tin great is
sue now involved in the Bank question,
and its associate schemes, than in the ex
position and resolutions which we copy to
day from the Charleston Mercury. We
hope the Democratic Press throughout the
Union will republish this declaration of
principles. The Democratic party, we
have no doubt, will recognise them as their
own, and act upon the doctrines so justly,
eloquently, and vigorously asserted bv the
Republicans of Sou'h Carolina. It will be
observed from the conclusion of Mr. E
wing's report, that he makes some reser
vations for those who hold the doctrines of
the S;;uth Carolina address in regard to a
Hank. The '"-opinions" different from
his own, which the Secretary re firs to as
entitled to high consideration, we have no
doubt are the President's.
We shall, when more at Icasure, look
iMto Mr. Ewing's calculations.

Divorce. A singular case was recently
decided in the Supieme Court of Massa
chusetts, at Boston. It was a libel for a
divorce. The facts, as stated in a Boston
pr.pcr, arc these. More than half a dozen
years ago, the husband ol the libcilant
forsook her. Having been absent several
years without being heard from, his wife
was informed that he was dead; and sup
posing herself a willow, she did not consid
er it necessary to go through a tedious pro
cess of ceremonial mourning for the depart
ed, but in a short tiim. exchanged the stable
weed (if, indeed, she had ever put it on)
for ihe bridal white. Soon after her sec
ond marriage, her first husband made his
appearance, either to claim his wife, or
disturb lu-r quiet. The good woman, find
ing herself provided with a double portion
of husband, applied to the law for lelief,

fTpThe third trial in New Orleans of
Wm. II. Williams, accused of bringing!
slaves into the Stale of Louisiana, in viola-1
tion of law, resulted on Friday, the 30ih!
ult. in a verdict of guilty. The Mobile-
Journal says the negroes in question, arej
the. Virginia convicts sold to go out of the .
United States, of which notice was given
to the Collector last season, when it was
i bought an attempt would be made to intro
duce them into this port.
The speculation turns out to be a bad
one for the prtj. He losea the cost of
ihe slaves, (24 in number,) at S500 each, is
subiecl to a fine in Louisiana of S500 each,
and forfeits his bond to the S ale of Virgin

Clarke Hubbard died at South Kingston,

and had just delivered his text, when he
was seized with a fit, and fell on the pul
pit floor, and soon after was a corpse!
(0 It is said, that among other cruelties
practised upon the little boys at the Farm
School, near Boston, by the unfi-eling
monster Locke, he compelled them to la
bor barefooted upon the snow and ice;
some were dreadfully whipped wilh a cow

Rank Rubbery. We republish in an
other column the advertisement respecting
the robbery ofthe Frederick County Bank
The notes of the hank w hich were stolen
were almost exclusively ofthe denomina
lion of $5, SlO, $20, $50. and 2100.
It appears that the notes under $5 were
not taken. The robbers had access to a
large amount of silver coin, but it is presU
med, declined touching it on account of
its weight. The numbers of the 5 and 6
per cent. State bonds which were stolen,
are staled in the advertisement. It is ho
ped that the large reward offered will lead
to the detection ofthe rogues and the recov
ery of the property.
The capital of the bank is Sl73,OO0-.
being 310,000 less than the amount lo-len.-JJalt.

Melancholy Suicide. On Saturday
the 24 th ult. while her husband was absent
at Brownsboro', near Louisville, Ky.,
Mrs. Caleb Dorsey, lhe wife of onef thd
wealthiest Farmers in the county, eluded
the vigilance of her attendants and shot
herself with a rifle, the ball taking effect
in her head and tearing in a shocking man
ner the lower part of her face, producing
almost instant death. Her mind had been
unsettled for sometime, and she had been
very carefully watched lest she should
commit some violence upon herself, but in.
a momentary suspension of the exceeding
care of those attending her, ahe found
means to deprive herself of life in a very
speedy but most horrid manner.
