A VISIT MOM BT, liipnQLaS, OR SANTA CLAD3. \Twaa the nigBt before Christmas, when all thro' tlte house Npt a creatiuro was stirring, not even a mouse: The stocking) were hung by the chimney with care, In hopes that St. Nicbolas'soon would be there; The children were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions ol sugsr-plums danced in their beadls; And numma n her kerchief, and 1 in njy cap, Had iust settl id our brains for along winter's nap; When ont on the tawrt there arose such a clatter, I sprung from tbe bed to see what was the matter. Away to the irindow I flew like a flash, Tore open thi I shutters and threw up the sash. The moon on tha breast of the new-fallen snow* Give the Iuwr|ei of mid-day to objects below, When, what to my wondering eyes should appear, But a«mniiatu -e sleigh^ and eight tiny rem-deer,. With a lutlie eld driver, so lively and quick, I knew in a mjdmtnt it must be St. More rapid th in eagles his coursers-they came Nick. , s-they ndshoiitad, aUd called them by And he'Whilst ed, r ame \Now Dasher! now, Dancer !nc)w,Pr«!icer! now, Vixen!'

With iho'slleigb fullof toys—and St. Nicholas too. And then, iinit twinkling, I heard bn tho roof, . The prancing and pawing of each liule hoof—. As I drew iln iiy head, and was turning around, Down the chi mney St. Nicholas came with a bound- He was dresi ed all in fur from hia head to his foot, And his clothes were alt tarnished with ashes and A bundle olfaoy* was flung on his| back a [soot; And he looked like a pedlar just Opening bis pack ; , Hiseyesr-bo wihey twinkled !.hia dimples how inerry! • , , ••> • , His cheek* v ere like roses, his no»a like a cherry; His droll liittl 3 month was drawn up like UTJOW', And the benr 1 of hia chin was as White as the enow ; The stump o! a pips hi hold: fast'lir^i.-foiU, And the snniol :e it encircled his head like a wreath; He had a bco ad face and a little round belly, Thai shook v 'ban h e imighedJikei a bowl-lull of jelly. He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf, Andl laugllicd whenl saw him, in spite of myself. A wink of h is eye and a twist of his head, Soon gave ma to know I bad nothing to dread; He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work, And filled all the stockings, then turned with a jerk, And laying; 1 is finger aside oi hi* nose. And giving a nod, up the chimney he rose; He sprang to hia sleigh, to his team gave a whistle, And away they all flew like the down of a thistle ; But 1 heard htm exclaim ere he rode out of Btgbt, \Happy C&r'jtnuatoall,andtoaUagoodnight.\ ry m*U at »t«! ia tb» ARABELLA£MITH,j *»*>&¥ ifV\ J.

H. has invented what he calls •' many-chambered rum-recoil\ Pistols, Rifles, Muskets,-and Cannon, vbrch are capable of having from ten to fiflleen charges Inserted in a metallic wheel, tint revolves on axis, in tbo rear of the breech, in such a manner as to bring eacli of lliem, in luccesaio^/upposite tho calibre of (he gun; when, by a percussion lock, they are severally discharged, with great rapility, and may be quickly replac- ed by otlitor*. Besides this important ad- vantage, he shot are driven to a greater distance, t ban by common fire arms,-with even a less charge of powdler, and there is no recoil, Mr. Cochran haB obtained pat- ents [for !his invention in tbjs country, Eng- land andl'rance ^having vjsited the latter counl'ries for that purpose, and made suc- cessful ejt ieriment« in the presence of tlistin- guished ID iilitary officers in London and Pa- ris. The t mbassador of the Grand Seignor, at the Bri cish and French' Courts, having witnessed the tremendous effects of these arms,induced the inventor to visit Constan- tinople, a: id gave him letters of introduc- tion and commendation to the chief officers of the Ot oman Empire. He immediately proceeded on the voyage, was kindly re- ceived, and introduced to the 'Sultan; and so much [interested was the Turkish re- former wjith the model of a cannon which be eaw fired, that he ordered a, twelve pounder ;o he constructed] and gave direc- tions for i inabling him fo complete tbe work, underbill own superintendence, at the pub- lic laboratories. The cannon was finished in a few i nonths, and discharged many times in the Kijesence of the Sultan and the offi- cers of Mia court, who were ao much grati- fied witut the result, that the Sultan, made the ingenious artist a most, munificent pros entiha purie of gold coin. After a resi- dence o six' months atl Constantinople, where M^r. Cochran waa treated with mark- eddiilirction by the Grand Seignor, and all the clvil^xailUstry, and naval officers of nie cour t, and by Com.

Tho plough of] Mr. Hoathcote, though a- very powerful ma- chine, appoars to us t o be much too (Sim- plex audV costly for common agricultural purposes, though we havo little doubt that it might be used not only with effect! but advantage, in reclaiming large portions of moss land—such as the bogs of Ifelauc.

AD* Philadelphia, Nov. 11, 1836, My Dear Sir—I proceed to the second ob- ject of our conversation—the. present state of the currency—*which I shall treat j dis- passionately as a question of tnero finance. Our pecuniary condition seems to be a sjirabge anomaly. Wherr*Congres8 adjp|uril- ed, it left the country with abundant qriops, and. high prices for them—with every branch of industry flourishing—with more specie than we over possessed before—with all the elements of universal prosperity. Not one of these has undergone the slightest change, yet after a few months, Congress will re-oBsemble. and find Ihe wbolo coun- try suffering intense pecuniary distress.— The occasion of this, and the remedy f<*>r it, may well occupy our tlioughla. i In my judgment, the main cause, of it is the mismanagement of the Revenue,—jmis- management in two respects; the mode of executing tbe distribution law, and thj; or- der requiring specie (or the public laudB. 1st. The distribution law. j' In July 1836, Congress declared tha( the suiplus in the Treasury on tho lst^of Janu- ary 1837, should be divided among tho States. That it might be done as gently as possible, the payments were to be trade-, not at opce on the 1st oFJan. but quarierly throughout the whole year 1837 ; and ai> the aggregate sum to he distributed is from thir- ty six to forty mil Irons, we may assumo the first payment in January to be about nine millions. To prepare for this, the Treasury has had in hand forty or fifty millionfe—it would receive in the course of the open tion, thirty or forty millions of revenue^, mere— and as there was probably money* in crery State.and payments to make in every Slate, the operation was s o simple and easy tdat it ought not to have occasioned the slightest pressure either on, public or.private aQUrs ; and the whole might have been accom- plished without any derangement of ijrade tnd without tho movement of a single doi- <mwwmmi# ^W^'wiJT*? 0 , \ c Sgf &W1 i« P*if»M» eaUtbliabment ip Spring tt^fej^^tS^^.^ J^eh^o^notipr#r l lo fie ^la^al^of *hicbpv»ilr biMW $* w* aa mor6 th m t*r»i»ty-*eilbtl year* of age r is at any otbar store. r • i 8^ intaili«intri*a»loui.ana^«hterDrriinr.

This not only couldbe iSone, but has actually been qjyyag\ you will find in the public documents of 11829. In that year, the now administration of Mr. Jackson, anxious to appropriate every disposable dollar of the revenue to the re- luction of the public debt, eoughtandl ob- tained the aid of the Bank of tho U. States. Notice was accordingly given on-thej31st of March, 1S26, thatou the 1st of Julyl, the debt.and inlereut, auiounliog to §8,71$,462 87 els. would bo paid. At the rWiod of the notice, the whole available means of Ihe Treasury were only six millions, scat ered throughout tbe United States, and tliese, with the accruing revenue in tha interval, were, at a notice of nitvty days, to bt col lected, to pay nearly nine millions. So closoly was the government pressed, that after paying these sums, the actual balance in the Treasury, throughout tho who e U. States, was reduced to $164,365 04. The Bank however undertook.thu arrangement, with what success ilray he seen in the fol- lowing part of the message of IVlr. Jackson to Congress, in December lb'29, ''Thepay- ment on account of the public debt, made on the 1st oMuly last, was '88,715.4(12 87 It was appreliended that the sudden withiraw- al of so large a sum from the Banks in which it was deposited, at a time of unusual press- vlre in the money market, might cause much injury to the interests dependent on Bank ac- commodations. But' this evil HHIS wholly averted by an early anticipation of it it the Treasury, aided by the judicious arrangement of the Officers of the United-States.'* i The respective shares of the Bank and) the Treasury may he conjectured from ihej Sec- retary's letter of the'lllu of July, 1S$9, in which he takes occasion to express -\i\ the great satisfaction of the Treasury Depart- ment in the preparation for the 1 eavyriay- ment of the public debt on the 1st insjint— which has been effected by the prudent ar- rangement of your Board, at t a time of kevere depression on all the productive employments of the country, without causing any sensible addition to the pressure, or even visible ef- fect upon the ordinary operations of thelstate Banks.\ ! If then nine millions, being almost the last dollar in the Treasury could thu» be distributed—two millions ot it \to foreign- ers—at a time .of unusual pressure ; how happens it that with funds equal to fifty millions, and with six months notice] nine millions cannot now bo distributed—exclu- sively among our own people—at a'time of greater abuodsinee, without hazarding a convulsion?, -'The answer is t p be found hi the different mode of conducting the opera- tion. This may be Been bjj contracting whit the Secretary might ha'Vo dono,, 1 with what he has done. \ The distribution law assigned tohith twp duXiei, both pimple and both easy-^-tie di vision of the funds among the Banks and the division among the States. As to tile first, he was *;to select as soon as practicable, and employ aa depositories of tho money of the UnitedStateSjBuch of tho Banks a i may be located at,,, or convenient to the poi tits or place* at which the revenue may bo collect- ed or dilburse(d' , - i • ,, provided thai .at least one such Bank shall be locu tod In each State or Territory>**-*« and that no Bank! shall have On deposit more than three-foutflhs of iigcapital,» J . | Here is no authority whatever to dfstrib- uta the money from the Banks of one State to the Banks of another State., . ,0ft t the «oo|tary T i»^|U*> twelfth ae^tiott, m im* : (•rafor <**ny *i$m p**t*»* \mb*tivfjiv «*'• eept|o(aeiliiaUthei-Mfel\»f djatunti»en(i t •at4 to eo«kf ly with th« ja*o*»«ioiu «f tkw New York Banks New.Wk. Wh w SSPf^P^ ization-under the provisions of tliis act in consequence of too great an accumulation of deposits, in ary Bank—such transfers »hall be made to i be nearest Deposit Banks which are considered safe and secure ;\ and although the supplement saya that nothing shall prevent him f rom making transfers from State to Slate, ** when required to prevent large Si-inconvemmt accumulations in partio> ular. places.or in order to produce due equal- ity and just proportion according to the pro- visions of this ocL'l the general policy of the law to keep tlje deposits together,unless under peculiare mergeucies, temains un- changed. , . Under this.law his duty was as clear as po&frible. He was o.seethat no Bank should [have a deposit of more than three fourths of iils capital. 'The revenue in* the great cities then, should be divided among the Banks in those cities—there being in each of them solvent Batrks enough to receive ft. There was po necessity or sending a d^ar of it out af those cities In New YdrKalone ht» ,says, \ the operation will require the trans- fer t of something like eight millions of dol- lars from the old deposit Banks to new ones, cither in the State or out of it.\ But why out ofil at all ? Why could not the rejenue already received iii New York and falling due in New York, be divided among the to support the trade of, jt not let it remain active there up to the last Lour when it was paya- ble te the States? But the law requires that there should be at least one deposit Rank in each Stat u Be it 90. Thenttnake a deposit Bank in each Stale,if there be not one already, and jive it a deposit, which, While it satisfies the law, will not carry away into inactively, funds that might be useful to places - . '•>( business. There -was then, no-necessity to send a dollar from N. Vork f or the other commercial cities.merely for the purpose of preventing any one Bank from having more than three-fourths of its Capital. That is clear. Nor was it moru necessary for the pur- nose of distribution amopg the States. The law says: . . , *• That the money which shall be in . the Treasury of the United.States on the 1st of January, 1837, shs.ll be deposited with such of the several States, as shall bylaw au- thorise their Treasurer, or other competent authorities to recifve the 6ame—and the[ Secretary of theTreasary shall deliver the same to such .Treasurer or other competent authorities on recsiving certificates of de- posit therefor.\ This is the whole law. Now what does it contemplate ? The money must be in the Treasury on the 1st o f January, 1837, because up to that time it is not known whether the States will take it. Tec inically, and legally the Treasury is at Washington—practically the Treasury is wherever }be deposits of. tbe public monies art. But the Secretary of the Treasury is tin official person whose Only official residence is Washington. Ac- cordingly a Treas irer of a State goes to the Secretary at.Wasliington, and presents to him the certificates of deposit. The Secre- taryjtbereupon \ ielivers\ to the Treasurer his T Stale's quota. But Itow does he di-liyei, it ?* By an actual manual counting out of these dollars ?—No. By a check, on the Deposit Bank at Washington?—No. . But lie delivers to the State Treasurer as he doesko any other person receiving money, a draft for theain m'nt ou.some ou« or more of the depositor es which compose the Treasury. Is not such a draft the usual and proper mode of miking, public payments ? Undoubtedly. And then we come to the real question. V'as ft necessary to make in advance any transfer of funds whatsoev- er inffo the several States- merely because they had the option, on certain conditions, of receiVingthem ? lf.theie* was no such necessity, (lien the 12lh faction of the law makes these transfers illegal. Now there was clearly tiosu^h necessity. The money wa s t o be deposited WITH the States, not inf them. It was necessarily paid in Wash- ington by drafts Dn oilier places. If you say (hat the Seen tary must pay it into Hie Stale Treasury, it is not enough to briug it inlto ihe State—-he must take it to the Seats of Goverun. eut. Pcnn&v Lvar.ia must have her idiare— not in Philadelphia,*buf in l|<trri!»burg. New York mut.1 be paid, not hi the city of \ew Yoik. but in Albany. If the place be not fixed by law,<lie mutual convenience of the parties will designate it. Now there is no individual and no State in the Union that wiould not prefer payments in New York ot the north Atlantic cities, Ito payments any iwhere else; and for this 'obvious reason,— hat money is worth more tlierp than ai,iy where t-l>e. If the Stale of Ohio, for instance,had a draft on New York, it coiuM'sell it tc its -citizens, usefully to theuji and profitably to the Treasury. It does not want the riior ey brought.to Ohio.Every\ mile it comes on the road lessens its yal.uo. .We may safely crncludo, then, that there w,as no necessity fur sending a dollar of the pub|ic money from New York or the com-\ •mer^ial cities for the purpose cither of equal izing funds among Banks—or distributing them through th< States : Tjie true theory of the case, therefore, wasjsimply to let the excesses of revenue in tl^e several Suites, be transferred, iu the counse of trade, to the great commercial points, and then 1 o pay the States by drafts on those pointy. The Deposit Batiks at those points, knowing \&hat they had to pay'; would have been .ready to pay,~and up bathe hour of payment would huvecui- p)o}]uU the funds usefully ; so that ir\every staejc of ihafc pracess, business would be assisted,—commercial activity stimulated, -(-and all parties be gainers.- Even supposing these transfers at all ne- cessary—the funds should have been<remit-\ ted by bills to the* points of accumulation-:- bjending these operationssp insensibly with the business of the country as to be unfelt except in its benefits. But what has he Secretary done? In- Bt|ea.d of graflua preparations to provide ftimlsat the distant points, the whole (sci- ence of the Treasury seems to have consist- ed ip drawing warrants—in taking up the columns of tho rt turns and dirocttng drafts from tho Banks, throughout the United Spates, without n.ecessity-without reference to tpe wants or ihe business of tbo different sections of the Union, the season of'the yiear, or the com se of trade—and thus' ma- k|ine the whole r iventie of the country worjt agajnst thewjaol J industry of the country.

When thejalesof land on cred- it became incorf rcnierit from the complica- tion of accounts, the lands were .sold for what is termed cash.. But this was only a-nother fo^-nr of credit, for the Banks, by lending tp those..who purchased lands,, took the place Cff the Governmentascreditors-^ and the Government received their 110165 as-equivalent to specie, because always con- vertible into specie. This was- the usage —this ma| be regarded-as the law, of the, country, 'By ljhe resolution of. Congress passed on the 3Dtb of April, 1816, i t was declared that •' no duties, taxes, debts Or sums of money, accruing or becoming pay- able to the United .States as aforesaid, ought to bexollejcfed or received otherwise than in the legal currency of the Unjted States, or Treasury notes, or the Bank of the Uni- ted Sitates p or in, notes of Banks which are payable apd paid on d,emapd in the said le- gal currenjey of tjhe United States.\. 1 This resolution presents various alterpa* tiyes—the; legal ...currency—or Treasury hotes— qr (notes pfifhe Bank of the United States— ot notes? of specie paying banks. A citizen |had a right tc^choqse anyone of these modlesupf paj ment. Ho had as much right to pijiy for land with tho note of a spe- cie-paying bank as^topay it for duties at the custoip house, \lathis be denied, cer- tainly anjf of them might be accepted by the Treasury—but to proscribe all but one—to refuse every thing but the most difficult thing—to do this without notice of tlie ap- proacuing change in the fundamental sysci tem oi'ouir dealing-^is an act of gratuitous oppression. ' * Under the operation of this- resolution, the banks had gone on,.feariijg nothing, as they hadjonly to provide for the usual spe- cie ca'll ppon them—and saw the cotintry full of specie, with no foreign demand to strain it from them—when„ f pi a sudden^ •without ^ny intimation of the coming sbork p an order was issue by the S#cf;etary,declare iug that their notes were no longpr receiv- able, and of course inviting all who; held tlie notes or had deposits in these banks, to, convert.them in specie. Il.ua fact made at once the \\ hole amonnt. of their circulatipO and private deposits a specie demand upon tlieui. T he first coiisequence was, that the banks nearest the land offices-ceased making loans, The next was, that, they strove to fortify themselves by accumulating specie. JtwasjusA at ihis'moment that the war- rants for transfers were put into Iheir hands. The combination of tlie two measures pro* duqed a double result—first, to require the batiks generally to increase their .specie, and nejtt, to give the means of doing it, by drafts on the Deposit Banks.' The com- mercial community were thus'taken by sur- prise. Tbe^nleribr banks making no loads and convening llheir Atlantic funds into specfe, the? debtors in .the .iuteiio'r could make rio remittances to the 'merchants.in the Atlantic cities, who ate thus thrown far siiipporj;on the banks of those cities at a ? tnqtnettt when they are unable to afford re- lief on account of'the very abstraction qf tljeir specie to the West.. Tfhe. credito'r states not only receive po, money, but then- money is carried away to the debtor slates, Who in turn, cannot use it, either to pay old engagements or'to-run tract new. Bj 7 this unnatural piocess the- specit) of Ne\y York and the oilier comtueicial cities is piled up in\'the Western States—not circulated, not used, but held as a defence, a gainst the Treasury—and while (he West canttot use it—the East is su Serins 'for the waiit of jt. The result is, that the commeici<tl inter- course between the West and the Atlautic,, is almost wholly suspended, and the few Operations which a-re made t are burdened with the most extravagant expense. In Nov. 1836, theiuteresft of money has risen tjo twienty four per cent.—merchants aije struggling to preserve their credit\ by ruin oils sacrifices—and it costs five or sj;X times as-mr-ph to transmit funds* from the west and iputh-west, as it did i n Nov. 1835,.<j>r *34,or|'32. Thus while tjie exchanges w it|h all th«. world are in our favor—while Eu- rope is alarmed, and the Bank of England itself uneasy at the quantity of specie we possess—we are suffoiHig because, fromriiere mismanagement^ the whole ballast of the currency is shifted from one side of the ves- sel tp the other. In t|he absence of good reasons for these measures, and a s a pretext for them, it »ss said that the country has overtraded—that, the banks have overissued, and that tlie purchasers of public Jands.have ,heen very extravagant. 1 a m not struck by:the trut^h or the proprtetv. of tliese complaints. ^ The phraie of oyeftiading 1| !wy «onve6|erjit but ftot very intelligible, If i| means any thing, it means that our dealings, Wi3j©ii!»,? er countries have broUgbi M§ xti iefet.4«.
