Xt is thought that the Western part of our State
i more thoroughly drained of a circulation than
any other part of it ; and it ariiea from the fact,
that for eight months or two years tho Agency at
M organton baa been curtailing slowly, but con
stantly, its loans, and with but a slight exception
discounting none. Whilst the mother Bank and
the other institution hare, it is believed, never
ceased entirely to loan their funds. To this cause
may be added that there remains in somo, if -not
all of the Western eouoties, unsold, a larger quan
tity of stock than is usual. In fact thcro has becu
no demand for the article whatever. If tho poo.
pie could be enabled to sustain themselves till the
next full, that they might bring their stock into
market, t be- sold even at red uovd.ru tcs ; in the
mean while curtailing their expenses, avoiding an
increase of debt, and arranging, by transfer from
one to another, what debts could be so arranged,
might bo avoided. To effect this, so desirable a
result, I think that but a small increase of good
paper would be needed. It would mako up in ac.
tivity -vhat it lacked in quantity. It would revi
vify expiring hope and stirnulato despondence.
At all events, there should be enough to produce
these results. There is no institution to which we
can look for effecting this, but the State Bank,
through its Agency at Morgantun. Will she do
it? I have taken the liberty of supposing some
of her objections to the measure, and attempted
to shew their fallacy. There may be others : It

these men, and they meet with tho partial

in belief and practice, each according to
his measure of credulity.
Tho doctrines of free trade arc gaining
large additions to their1 advocates, and will
shortly, I think, be .triumphant here; they
will achieve their first victory, I think, in
an hnportant-modificatforrof the corn laws,
whicli the administration will introduce
early next session of Parliament. Mr.
Christopher, a member for Lincolnshire,
who is high in tho Ministerial ranks, both
from his connexions and his standing as re
presentative of one of the largest agricultu
ral counties of England, lately made a
i . . ...i.: A : . vftfM
speecil 10 ins constituents, which is gene
rally regarded as indicative of the opinions
and tho intentions of the Cabinet. Mr.
Christopher considers that the law should
aim at fixing the price of wheat as nearly
as possible between 56s. and 65s. thequar
tor. This he pronounced to be the extent
of protection which may be justly elaimetd
for the farmer's well being, and conceded
without unfairness to the rest of the com
munity. And this, or something like this,
he proposes to secure by affixing a mi, am
urn duty of Gs. per quarter upon wheat,
when the averages amount to or exceed the
sum of 65a,; and then, as prices decrease,
increasing the duties (at what rale1fedid
not say) till it arrives W its maximum, of at
least 20s., or at most 30s. Taking it at
20s., it must be allowed that this would be
a most material change. As tlic scale at
present stands, the duty on wheat, when
selling at 05s. per quarter, is 21s. and 18d.;
when at 50s., is 30s. 8d.; when at 38s. per
quarter it amounts to the height of Bos,
8d. A concession which substitutes 5s. for
21s., and 20s. for 53., is certainly a very
considerable abatement on the part of the
agriculturists ; and, looking at the quarter
from whence these statements have ema-
Inatcd, they fnayVbe safely .regarded as
what the ruling party will propose in far
liament. The public journals, however, in
the opposition, say that Mr. Christopher's
plan, coupled with some proposed altera
tion in the taking life averages, will make
the corn laws more oppressive to the con
sumers than they arc at present. Candid
men of all parties admit that, if Mr. Cs
scale of duties was accompanied with some
judicious changes in the mode of taking the
averages, it would cssentinlly benefit the
poorer classes. But all who judge fairlv
and impartially say that nothing but a fired
tow duty will.be a-radical remedy.
