"We find in the Richmond Examiner the following
startling statistics of the banking capital &c in the
years 1837, 47, 57. Comment is unnecessary:
"The number of bauks in the Union in 1837 was
783; in 1847 it was 715; in 1857 it is 1,416.
"The bank notes in circulation in 1837 amount
ed to $149,185,890; in 1847 tltey amounted to
,105,51!,7G6; they amount in 1857 to 214,778,-
"The specie held by the banks of the Union in
1837 was 837,913,540; in 1847 it was $35,132,510;
in 1357 it is $58,349,833.
"The indebtedness of-the people to the banks of
the L nion m lad was .2o,ll;,02; their indebt
edness in 1847 was $310,282,945; and in 1857 it is
"The capital stock of the banks in the Union in
1837 was $290,772,091; iu 1847 it was $203,070,
022; and in 1857 it is $370,834,274.
"Facts speak louder than words. Compare 1837
with 1847; then compare 1857 with 1847, and trem
ble at the resemblance between '57 and '37."
A Nut for the South Carolina Banks.
A writer in the Columbia (S. C) Times has
been propounding a few interesting queries to the
Interior banks of that state, to which we have as
yet seen no response. "Wild cats" don't seem to
be much more dangerous than the domesticated
-animal. The writer asks:
"Have any of the Banks of this State, used their
funds the present summer, in discounting paper at
usurious interest, either in New York, or elsewhere
say three per cent, a month?) If so, what Bank?
Has any bank refused to discount the notes or
drafts C any -planter or merchant, unless said plan
ter or merchant would bind himself not to give
anope than for cotton, when the staple was
-wm-th froHtllv more in market; It so wtiat name.'
How many asreuts, have the Banks, beyond

it at Mitchell, the cap exploding only. Mitch

to fire upon him, when some one told him not

Mitchell pnt up his pistol saying, "I will not

American merchants and bankers calculate ex

' i" " n ' 13 -
correspondent of the New York Mirror:
"The par of exchange is determined by the rel
ative proportion of pure metal in the coined piece
which forms the unit of price in the different com
mercial countries of the world. The alloy is reck
oned of no value.
"To simplify the matter as much as possible, we
will waive all consideration of the different stand

British sovereign 113 grains of the same.
Every reader may not know that the sover
eign is the coined piece of which the pouud
sterling is the money of account. A simple
calculation in the rule of three, therefore, de
termines that the equivalent of the pound ster
ling is $4,80,65-100 of our currency.
"Thus as 23,22,100 is to 1 so is 113 to $4,
86 65,100. But the English, through all the
variations of the mint laws, here and elsewhere
indeed for ages have been accustomed to
vhlue their pound sterling by the old Spanish
carolus pillar dollars, now entirely out of cir
culation in Europe and America, having all
been sent to China, or gone into the melting
pot. Of these $4,44,4.100 were equivalent to
the nrmnd sterling. It will be seen that it re-
ojiires the addition of 9 per cent with a
scarcely appreciable fraction to make the pre
sent value of the pound sterling in our curren

John Mitchell's Rencontre with the Ed

We find in some of our Carolina know nothing
exchanges a very different account of the affair
tY,a ifntcmpnt nnnended below. The latter
is from a reliable gentleman who was present, and
who published it in tha Washington Union:
F. C. Dcxxixgtox, Esq. The Know Noth
ing papers here will endeavor, 1 have no doubt,
to produce a false inpression upon the public
mind with reference to an assault made upon
Fleming, the editor of the Register, by John
Mitchell. You have seen. I suppose, the arti
cles recently appearing in the Louisville Jour
nal in which Mitchell is charged with having
effected his escape from an Dieinan s Land
by a breach of parole. One of these articles,
during .Mitchell's recent absence in New Y'ork,
wiis re-published in the Register, accompanied
by.some impertinent comments Day before
yesterday he met with Fleming, and approach
ing him, (no friend of Mitchell's having the
slightest intimation of his intention in the pre
; raises,) said to him in the hearing of sundry
; persons: "Mr Fleming, sir, in my absence,
you published a scurrillous and impertinent ar
ticle resrectiii2 myself in your paper." Here
Fleming interuotinr him bv savins, "scurril

and it is this way that I shall answer it," and
iinniediateiv. commenced caninsr him. a dozen
or more persons witnessing it.
His cane was broken upon Feming, the lat

blows as best he conld, though inflicting no in
jury whatever upon Mitchell. They were sep

ell In ten or fifteen minutes afterwards
Mitchell stepped into the Lamar House with a
friend, and remained there perhaps half an
hour. Fleming s friends became quite anxious
to know why he did not appear upon the street,
that F. might repair the injury he had suiter
ed. Mitchell not being armed in the urst me
lee provided himself with such weapons as he
thought necessary to hi-s defence, and appeared
upon the street, though told that there were
Know Nothings around who intended to mob
him. He passed by Fleming, who accosted
him, when JNlitchell halted and said, well, sir,
what do you want?" At this time Fleming
had a half dozen or more of his friends about
him, all of whom were armed. Fleming said
"you made a dastardly and cowardly attack
upon me when I was not prepared for it, and I
now pronounce you a coward." "Well," said
Mitchell, "words are nothing now, what will
you do?" Fleming thereupon repeated his de
nunciation. To which Mithell replied, "you

At the same time inviting those who stood
about not to interpose that he and F. might
settle, as it was a personal difficulty between
them. F. made not the slightest demonstra

when Mitchell pronounced him a "wliipt man,"
and that words were nothing then, he (M.)

The second Annual Convention of the N.

place on the evening of the 7th. The Presi

Newborn, and Tate of Statesville, were elec
By appointment at last meeting, essays

At a subsequent meeting officers were
elected as follows: Drs. Andrews of Char

l'rest.: Beubow of Fayetteville, Sec'y; Hub-

Washington, Gregg and Benbow, examining
committee, through whom candidates tor ad
mission will be offered to the Convention.
Drs. Andrews, Hewlett, Scott, Tate and
Benbow were requested to prepare essays
for the next meeting.
At a third session there was a very inter-estino-
discussion upon the subjects of sensi
five dentine, fillino- pulp cavities, abscesses
fractures, deformities, &c., and their be
treatment. Amonjr other instances ot pe
culiaritv in dentition was a case of consid
ernble interest related bv Dr. Andrews
that of a voting man for whom he had re
moved, within the last two months, eleven
teeth from the space that nature usually
supplies with only one. Also, that the young
man stated that not less than eight or ten
had from time to time been extracted from
that same place prior to the 1st of Aug.
Strano-e freak of nature, that so soon as one
tooth becomes loose and is removed, another
supplies its place.

of Dentists, in Cincinnati.

Prolonged ViTALifT of ce-eds. -Atwnt fifty
years ago, some welf digers7 while pTnfcing a
well forty miles from t?ie &ra, in the State of
Maine, struck, at the depth cf twenty feet, a
layer of sand. This strongly excited curiosity
and interest from the circumstance that no
similar sand was to be found anywhere in the
neighborhood, "or nearer than sea-bead).
As it was drawn np from the well, it ffls
placed in a pile by itself; the workmen feeling
an unwillingness to mix it with the stone and
gravel that were also drawn up. But when
the.work was about to be finished, and the pile
of stone tHid gravel to be removed, it was found
necessary also to remove the sandheap. It
was therefore scattered about the spot on
which it had been placed and was, for a time,
almost forgotten. In a year or two, however,
it was perceived that a great number of little
trees had sprung up all over the ground where
the sand was strown. These trees, in their
turn, became objects of great interest, and care
was taken that they should not be injured. At
length it was ascertained that they were beach
plum trees; and they actually bore the beach
plum, which had never before been seen, ex
cept immediately on the seashore.
These seeds must, therefore, have stirunsr up
from seeds which had existed in the stratum of
sea-sand pierced by the well diggers; aud,untii
this was dispersed in such a manner as to ex
pose them the air, they remaiued inactive. By
what convulsion of the elements had they been
thrown there, and how lonpj had they quietly
slept beneath the surface of the earth?
