petual cry is, and baa been lor months, Tbe
people against the Banks!" Down with the
Monster!" Eternal death Biddls!" Now,
bow stands the case! Who err these asen, thns
kindly appealing for lha rights of the people!
Did they not give to the Pet Banka the custody
of the public money! And were not eotne of
these Banka thus stimulated to anrer-isau of
paper tbe very thing they now condemn!
But thi is not the true issue; and they know
it. We know their object. They wish to enlist
the public prejudice against every Banking in
stitution in the country; and whenever that prej
udice shall have become fully matured, no bank,
however solvent, will be spared. In the popular
tumult, every one will he overthrown. And then

other countries, the jiature of man, are nmiuo.ii
oracles, all proclaiming that freedom is but a

of the evils they will inflict upon thrmsrlves, if
they lend their power for a moment to prostrate
the healthy and efficient banking institutions of
the country. We warn tl.cn. uf that corrup

a certain portion of the body politic, and which
is stealthily winding its way to the high places
of government. We warn them of a spirit reck

advance her interests and strengthen ber bold
