FREE BANKING IN N&W YORK.
As the law passed at the late
of the New York Legislature entitle
an act to authorise the business
banking, is of a novel and and int
esting character, and is likely,
snouiu prove successiui in its o
tion, to produce a complete revol
in that most important branch
ness not in IScw York o
throughout the entire cnun
hall make no apology for SJiViL
account ot us provisions.
Ihe objection principally rehv
on, by those who oppose the intrr
tionot the principle of tree competi
into the business of bjnkin,is,the t1
nosed perpetual danger to which t
holders of the notes issued under sui
a ysTcin,wouht tie subjeclell--ii danger
arising from the inability ot the bank
ers to redeem, and from their irrespon
sible character.
The New York law has taken great
pains to obviate this objection, and to
secure. the ultimate redemption of all
the notes which may be issued under
its authority.
These notes are to be engraved, and
printed in blank, under the authority
and direction of the comptroller of
the State, and by l im, or under his au
thority, thej are to be countersigned,
numbered'and registered in proper
books kept in his othce.
AnyjOitivuluaW
be organized in conformity to the sub-
sequwnt provisions of the act may ob
tain from the comptroller a Quantity
f these notes; to be used in the busi-
ss of banking, by depositing with
state ot xxew York, or ol such other
. . ... . - .
individal States as the comptroller mai
approve, equal in amount to the quan
tity of notes obtained. But the stocks
deposited must be'equal in value to a
corresponding amount ofNevy York
five per cent stocks, and no stocks arc
to be received at a rate above the
par value.
. Or, instead of making the w hole de
posit in stocks, . one half of it may be
made in bonds and mortgages upon
real estate bearing six per cent interest,
such mortgages to be only upon im
proved, productive, unincumbered
lands within the Stale of New York,
worth independently of any bnildings,
ast double the amount for which
hey shall be mortgaged.
. The securities thus deposited, may
be exchanged tor others at ihe request
of the depositors and at the discretion
of the comptroller and the annual in
terest accruing upon them shall be paid
over to the depositors, except in case
of default made by them, or unless in
the opinion of the comptroller, the
stocks themselves shall hare become
an insufficient security.
- Such individuals or associations, as
may hire obtained banknotes from the
comptroller upon the term above pre
scribed, , after having 'executed and
signed them in the maner required by
law to make them binding promissory
notes payable on demand, at the place
of business within, the State, of such
individual or association, arc author

OPINIONS OF MR. GALLATIN.
The discussions, in the late Conven
tion at New Yoik of Delegates from
Banks in the several States, were con
ducted with closed doors; which did
not. however, prevent the substance of
what passed in the Convention from
heile',, generally known. Some ofl, the
; partiruUr hv found their way into
ih New .YiM-k pers; and, cimsider
' the reputation of Mr. Gallatin both
as a Statesman and a Financier, we
have thought that the subjoined account
if his share in the discussion would be
of interest to all our readers. And so
we copy it from the New York Courier
and Luqurier.
Mr. Gallatin took a leading part in
the debate, and as Ihe Globe swears by
Mr. Gallatin, we prcsusne that it will
pay due respect to his deliberate opin
ions as expressed in the Convention
Mr. Gallatin con-idered a National
Bank convenient and necessary for the
regulation of the currency; but was of
opinion that a return might be made to
specie payments without its aid. In
effecting ttiis great object, he consider

"TiTf: HOUSE THAT JACK
BLTLT."
A building of grat si.e "containing
1;1G rooms j has been lately erecting,
for the' use of the Treasury Depart
ment; when lo! no sooner are the walls
all .up, than it is discovered thai they
:.iust be taken down ngi n. A cott
in.ttce of Congress, assist' d by two able
architects, have reported in substance,
1. That the buiwmg is placed where
it ought not to be.
2. That it is not suited to the pur
pose for vv lii. fi it is intended.
3. That it is exceedingly uly.
4. That if completed un the present
plan it will inevitably tumble down.
They therefore .recommend that it
be taken to piecies and built at an-
i-Wlae on a better plan. The
workwaasoip, ecalready expended,
will De loss ol uunut eigtity thousand
dollars, and will cost thirty thousand
more to unbuild it total loa's gl 10,000.
Ni one i an fail to be struck by the
metaphorical res -mulance between ihia
edifice and the Administration itself.
1. The Administration is where it
ouht nut to be.
2. It is unfit for its design. ;
5. It is exceedingly ugly.
4. If it does not soon tumbledown
of itself, it wilj be pulled down.
