The following article from the

tory of that supremely wise legislation con
cerning the Banks, which has placed our
State in its present awful predicament.

The following is a part of the third sec
tion of the bill, bs it passed the House
of. Delegates last session, respecting the
Banks r . " . ! i
That so' mnch of any act as may sub
ject any bank to the forfeitnre of its charier
fur failing to pay or redeem' its notes l or
debts in specie, or which may subject such
oann to tne payment ot any damages or-
rate of interest exceeding the rate of 1 12
per ct. per annum, for failing to pay or re
deem its notes and debts in specie, si all
be and the same is hereby repealed, ind
tin legislature reserves to itself the power
of repealing the charter of any bank which
would have been forfeited by virtue of he
provisions hereby repealed ; and ofjdi
recting that the funds and effects of such
bank shall be disposed of, in the manner
therein prescribed '? I I i
The Senate struck out this provisitin ;
and the House on the 29th. of March disa
greed to this, among oiherJamendments. iOn
the 1st of April the Senate insisted on it;
on the next day the Uou.e insisted on its
disagreement ; on the third; the Set ate
adhered; and on the 4th, the House, tq a
bid the loss of the whole Bill, receded fjrom
its disagreement, and agreed to this and the
other amendments of the Senate. j

that they hereby forfeit their charters, I arid

THE NEW I MONSTER 'SUSPENDED!'
We learn that the present dry spell pervades
most of the country. Fortunately for this re
gion, the crops Were well near made before it set
in, but it had some efTect todimirjish the previous
calculation on the corrj crop that crop was, in
deed, much shortened by the drought. The cot-
ton; crop is most beautiful in tbs region, and so
perfectly sunned, that! the cotmn growers say
they will have to get a belter pice on account of
the lightness. : I !
The great inconvenience we ihave to encoun
ter .is pn account of grinding. If it. bad hot been
for some of the River Mills we should have been
reduced to hominy. Correll's Mill, on Third
Creek ; Fisher's and HalPs on j the South Yad
kin!, have gone almost all the i time, and have
" done the State some; service. j" We will' here
take occasion to mention the Opporftme improve
ment introduced into Hall's Mijl by the Ruck
ers; If one half of what we lave heard con-
cerning tbe performance of this mill be true, it is
certainly a most wonderful improvement. Tbe
fact that Hall's inill, from ope pf the poorest in
the whole country, was made af a small expense
to out-grind tbe most approved establishments in
the country, stahds for itaelf, a$d is regarded by
most persons as a full test of Kuckers patent.

out-cry against j the Banks; for refusing to
cash their notes when offered for payment.
But the precious fact that; the Treasury of
the Untted plates j also refuses to pay its
8hin-plasters.in specie when presented, is
carefully concealed. j Such is nevertheless
the fact, and it results not from an inability
to redeem, for. the government has been of
late amassing ar lare amount of the precious
metald by forcing this very irredeemable pa
per into tbe market : they have therefore
ample means to meet these notes, if tbey
were so minded: ; But then, what would the
office-holders do for the better currency to
pay their own salines, if it were all paid
out in discharge pf honest debts ? Well
may these favdredi ones chuckle and exult
at tbe suspension of specie payments ; for the
same harvest of profit is offered, which they
enjoyed on this late occasion of stoppage by
