Tilli EVENING POST. WEDNESDAY EVENING. AUGUST 29. In a town in England lived.notlong since, public crier, laraous for his strong lungs and his disposition to waggery. Being era.

jiloved to cry lost purses and necklaces, and stray lap he whs wont to diversify his labours by now and then crying a lost fashion, a cant phrase which had dropped out of use, or a virtue no longer practised. The legend saith that he reaped the reward of his harmless endeavours to divert his townsmen, ili he lived to a good and merry old remaining towu crier to the last, and ditd greatly regretted. If the practice of crying lost articles prevailed here, and if this facetious crier were now living amon us, he might have a good occasion lor the exercise of his satirical talent in making application for a lost cant phrase, current a lew months ago among the wliisr journalist and pouters, but now suddenly dropped. We mean the phrase experimenting on the currency." A short time since, this was the principal sttple of vhi? argument. It was the text from which the oppoition orators declaimed.

Theoppo silion journals did little else than let it off against their adversaries, and the echoes cl Wall street were so familiar with it that they would sometimes, it is said, repeat it without its being pronounced. Mow what is become of it You search the journals for it in vain; you hear it no longer from the lips ol the whig slan whaogers. It is lost, gone, given over to silence, and passed from human hearing, as completely as the discharges of cannon that roared on the last fourth of July. Why is this it may be asked. Simply because the experiment" on the currency, the experiment of getting on in the financial affiirs ot the nation without the help of a national bank indeed without the help of any hank at all has turned out well at last.

Never did an expetiment end more happily. It was like the experiment of a proprietor dismissing an unfaithful agent, cr the ex periment of a spendthrift applying himself seriously to the study of a proper economy, or the experiment of a and wine bibber resolving firmly on the practice of sobriety and it produced the good effect which belongs to that class of experiments. The opposition party its manager, its speakers, its press declared with one voice, that the distresses of the times were owing to the want oi a national bank, and that the currency and exchanges would never be retrieved without it. In the face of thi6 declaration, the currency and exchanges have been retrieved, most rapidly retrieved under the independent treasury system. We give from a whig paper, the Journal of Commerce, the following view of the present state of business and exchanges: "Movet and ExcHAKOEs.

Ohio, Illinois and Indiana, Va21. "Business generally is going on finely so that complaining has ceased and all men seem fully occupied and satisfied with what they are doing. The same last happy change has taken place all along the seaboard. What a contrast does this present to the predictions of the opposition Here are the exchanges transacted at as cheap rates as the Bank of the United States ever tians acted them. True, the rates of exchange are still high on some parts of the country, as Mobile, Tennessee and Mississippi, but that is because in the nominal rate of ex change is included tne actual appreciation i of bank paper in these places.

On Missis sippi, for example, on whose credit system Mr. Prentiss the other day pronounced a public tulogium at Hall a credit system which has bad the effect of cheating IMew Yorli creditors out ol a prodigious amou'it of money oa Mississippi the nominal rate of exchange is II percent but this is because tbe Mississippi currency, the Mississippi bauk notes, are so touch Ltluw par. No wonder that those who honestly supposed for human credulity has no bounds that trade must everlastingly stand still, and that creditors living at a distance from their debtors must go unpaid, without a national bank, are beginning to open theireyes and ask where they are. The barbarians who, in time of an eclipse, make, as we are told, a noise with gongs and kettle drums, to drive away tbe dragon tbat davours tbe sun. could not is more astonished to eee the eclipse pass oil although the gongs and kettle drums were not sounded.

It is no matter of surprise, therefore, tbat we see such men as Mr. McDuffie, one of the ablest champions, if not the very ablest, of a national bank, declaring a conviction that such a measure is now not to be thought of. The Richmond Enquirer in alluding to tha arti. cles concerning the American navy which have appeared in Ihe Washington Globe, concerning the authorship of which so nv.wh noise has been made in tbe opposition prints, with view of making them the opportunity of an attack on the administration. denioa that Mr.

We will go further, and venture to say, that whilst Mr. Paulding is proud of the high reputation which tbe Navy has won by its brilliant services, he will he the last man to wink at any abuses which may have crept into it, from any causes whatsoever. We know that he is determined to administer its concerns upon the highest general principle!) an a single eye to lha public sen ice and the g'eat interests of his country. The denunciations of ihe whig presses will have no terrors for him but he wilt reform abii'ea wherever they appear, and will do jmdiceto officers of all parties, juiff in nw in re."

The following is a list of the Grand jury summoned on the occasion referred to David Austin, Wm. Benin, Joseph D. Beers, Amos Buller. John Y.

Tattle, Henry Tullmadgn, John Targee, John Van Nostrand, Peter S. Van Wyck, David W. Wetmore. All the persons named in this hat, we under stand, did not attend, but weare informed that one or them, a merchant and a director of one ol our banks, did vote against every presentment offered by the district attorney, and mado the declaration given by our correspondent. There are many, we doubt not, on that grand jury who entertain as great an abhorrence of the kind ol morality which prompted that declaration as ourselves.

We are inclined to believe that the whigs have done better with the Collector than the Loe Foco, notwithstanding the charge of partiality brought by ono of the whig journals against him. We have beard some cuiious anecdotes illustrating this idea. One person alter his goods had been seized by the Collector and condemned, made a trip to Europe in tho Great Western and returning with more goods, culled on the Collector early in the morning after Ins arrival, elated lliul he had brought out two English cheeses for his own use, and asked for a free permit, which the Collector with bis usual courtesy granted. This is the case ot a whig a true blooded ono in principle as well as in prat lice. The other case we have heard of, is that of the editor of the Courier himself, who returned wilh hi brother whig in the same vessel, and who also called on the Collector demanding a similar favor, which was granted.

Another case ol indulgence to a whig merchant is as follows He entered and swore to certain goods as manufactured silk, but found on the arrival ot his clerk in the Great Western that the "oods were cotton. He was piompily permitted to amend his entries. In another instance, the same merchant entered case ot nuspenders as merino shawls. This he alleged was in consequence of hurry at the moment of leaving the city, on account ot the health ot some one of his family. He was permiUed to correct this mistake also and yet, in the face of these facts, to hich he himself was a party, ho ventures to charge political favoritism on the part of the Collector to wards the friends of the administration.

The Collector admit tbat the Indulgences alluded to arc all rong, but he is a good tempered man. He bas been seduced by his whig friends into these petty violations of law, and now, forsooth, because he does not extend the same immunity to all the friends of the Courier, he is pelted with abuse. We know bun, however, welt enough to know that he is not to be driven from the ground he has taken, for the best of all reasons, because he believes it to be right. The lullowing is the litest sample of these as saults on the Collector. It is from the Courier of this morning uTh.

Merchants akd thb Government. Great excitement justly prevails among our import ing merchants in consequence ot the rrcmtl oppressions, insults and Irauds which ihey have been made to sutler at the Custom House. Patrick Henry said that our people have a hereditary hatred of custom house officers and it is certain that we have al ways Tound among them a singular faculty of making themselves odious. One reason of th hereditary hatred is the lac! that custom house has been a tavoritc medium ot Liovcrnment extortion and that men have been selected to occupy its offices, from, their readiness to become the instrument ot Government rapacity. It opens a thousand avenues, on various pretences, to arbitrary and oppres eive exaction and at no period of our history has the complaint against such exaction been more common or more bilur than it is at the present mo Tbe hereditary hatred" which manifests itsell just now in certain quarters, arises probably from a natural fear of the issue of certain trials under indictment for perjury, forgery, which will occupy the Circuit Court of the United Slates at its next session, and it will no doubt be convenient for tl.o accused to have public opinion" manufactured, so as if possible to avert the righteous retribution which honest merchants desire should speedily and severely overtake the innocent bawlers against govern' roent extortioners." It is an old trick of the Courier to lend its columns to the guilty, and the effort now is to make public opinion" lor Ihe benefit of Custom House smugglers, by tbe time they are put on trial.

This is the plan one quarter, and in another quarter the design is to make politics. If you can make the merchants believe that the officers of the government are op. pressing them, the politicians can call upon them to array themselves at the election. But we have faith in the honest merchants, and we believe they will etand by the Collector in his laudable eff irts to protect their intertfts and to root out bodily that gang of swindlers who have been making war upon all fair commerce while they are defrauding the government. Mr.

Rush came home in the Mediator, arrived from London night before last. He brings with him in Englikh gold com, the Smithsonian Legacy, which he has received from ihe Eoglith Conn of Chancery fir the United Slates, amounting, we understand, to four or five hundred thousand pounds sterling, tor the purpose of founding, under this munificent donation of the testator, an Institution at Washington lor the promotion of Science and Letters in the United Stales. The testator, it may perhaps be remembered, was a natural son of the late duke ol Northumberland, and Mr. Rush's return with the whole of th bi quest, considering all we hear ol the delays and uncertainties of tbe English Court of Chancery, and considering tbe interesting nature of th bequest, may well bt regarded a3 a subject of public congratulation. The letter writer for the National Intelligencer, divides the democrats of New York into two par tics Loco Focos and Marcy men, saying that at the lata Ward meetings these sections clashed, and had contention for the delegates to Tammany Hall.

The writer in this instance, as in all othsrs, when soeakin? of democrats, betrays the utmost io. l. norancr. turn miic aiiuiiciii iu my vuuj rr present, and none in fact existed about the Govern. or.

The federal leaders are more alarmed at our unanimity, than they are pleased with any supposed division in our rank. Let them bear in mind tbs bickerings of their own party on the question of Governor their dissensions are as open as day. Fiats. Tha wooden dwelling, 129 Cannon street, occupied by a number of familiis, was considerably injured in the upper story and roof, by fire, yesterday morning about 3 o'clock.

UNrcBusiiEt Poem or Drake. The follow poem, by the late John Rodman Drake, never before published, v. a written in the album of a lady of bis acquaintance, and when the collection of hi literary remains was made, his friends were probably not aware of its existence. The reader will not fail to discover some characteristics ol the author in the melody of the versification and the peculiar imagery employed. Song at Jtea.

RODMAN DRAKE. J'or the Ercning Post. It is an old adage, that, "what cannot bo cured, must be endured In walking over my fields a few days since, to behold the ravages made by the grasshoppers. I was so completely struck wilh the dexterity of! Use and the vast amount if la bor wrought by them, within a few day, Ihut 1 was at a loss to determine whether 1 had better laugh or cry.

But ot all the visitors (dias robber)that ever infested this part of our country, there may be ranked a mong the most niischicvuus. I know not how I describe our case better than by a few quotations from the 1 cha plcrof the Book ol Joel.

That which ihe palmer worm hath left, hath the locust eaten and that which the locust hath lelt. halh the canker worm eaten and that which Ihe canker worm hath left, hath the caterpillar eaten." We read also a similar lesson in the book ol nature which is now open lor our perusal, that which the drought has left, huth the grasshopper eaten" even the field is wasted, the land mourmth, for the corn is wasted the new wine is dried up, tho oil lau Be ye ashamed, ye husbandmen howl, ye vine dressers, fnr the wheat and for the barley; because the harvest of the field is perinhed."

One Opposiiion paper, mortified at the fact, af. tributes the demand lor the Treasury notes, which it has so much abused, but which are now at seven eighths ot one per cent, above specie in New York city, to the improved demand for Treasury notes for custom house payments, incident on Ihe received linportat ions from Europe; the importers preferring to pay the Government in its own coin." Who believes that a merchant, when he could pay Ins duties in specie, or in the notes of specie paying bunks, at par, would give seven eighths per cent more for Treasury notes to pay them with On the contrary the increased demand for Treasury notes is to use them for investments, and not for the false, contemptible, and losing operation, imputed by the Whigs for political effect. 2. Another Opposition organ the New York Eve ning Star charges upon the Comptroller of the Treasury, in his construction ol the acts of Congress as to the duties on silk, a grossand wanton violation of the French treaty, and asserts that the French Minister remonstrated with Gen. Jackson against a tormer threat to be a flagrant breach of the treaty.

Will the public believe that these learned Opposition lawyers and politicians are so ignoiant ot our treaties and laws as to make such positive assertions when the treaty with Franca does not even allude to the subject of silks? Yel such is the fact. Not a line nor a letter exists on the subject in tbe whole treaiy. Globe.
