SATURDAY AFTERNOON, JULY 17, 1S41. , fty For carefully corrected Pittsburgh I'rices Current, mid Bank Note List,' as well as for Business Card, zee fitst page. ', John Basks. We ask the attention of our readers to the excellent letter of this gentleman to the citizens of Mifflin County. The editor of the Advocate this morning sneaks of our article of Thursday last as l,un- nsuallv lonov' Well, we admit it was long, but we made it so by giving full and fair extracts from our own paper and the Advocate, so that our readers might clearly understand the question. We had no desire to deceive or mislead them, and therefore would not con sent to tear one portion of an article from its context, and make it bear a signification entirely differen'. from the true one. The infidel who took up the following passage "The fool has said in his heart, there is no Cud," and, by omitting the first seven words, made the psalmist say 'there is no God," was earlier in the perpetration of that fraud, hut not more cunning than the editor of the Advocate. That editor, this morning, extracts the following passages from our paper of the I st of July, the day after the nomination of Mr. Ilobinson. "We can scarcely believe that a Convention professing to be a W hig assemblage would pre-f'er a Porter man to a long tried Whig -like Judge Brackenridge, or Mr. Shinn, or even Wm. Little.1' l-But it so happens that he heat them all. Now that docs look a little suspicious, ant any man who believed that the editor of the Advocate was an honorable man, and incapable of falsehood and misrepresentation, might think there was some slight ground for his charge against us, viz: that we asserted that Mr. Robinson was, at the time of his nomination, a Porter man. Even, however, these detached sentences, when carefully examined, prove no such thing-. was in honest hands, and under good guid-ance. Mr. Robinson, we arQsure, must feel deeply mortified by the position in which he is placed by his friend no, not his friend, his advocate, Mr. Parkin. . When we first stated that Mr. Robinson was a Porter man last summer, and added that he might have since changed, and expressed our belief that the Extra-pay Convention would scarcely have nominated an adhering Porter man,the Advocate editor 'jumped up and swore' (asserted) that our statement was "totally false,''-', and that we "knew it to be false," and then labored to prove that we had descended to tlie baseness of making use of a respectable man to gull and Impose upon others. Such a charge, coining from such a creature, one who had impudently meddled in our politics before he was : naturalized, we could not submit to. Our first article contained not one statement but what is now admitted to be true to the letter. Nothing of which Mr. Robinson had a right to complain; so that his own advocate must be held responsible for all the mortification which he may have endured. U. S. Bank. We find the annexed remarks, in relation to the probable fate of Mr. Clay's Bill, in the New York Tribune and the N York American. The Proposed Bank. A letter in the Tribune of this momino-, from Washington, renders certain, what heretofore has only been surmise that Mr. John Tyler elected by the Whigs to carry out Whig principles, and who was personally most strenuous as a delegate at Ilarrisburgh, that Mr. Clay should be the candidate of the party, because lie was the personification, so to speak, of Whig principles, will not by "any possibility" sign a Bank Bill on the old model that is such a model as Jiamil ton designed, and Washington and Madison approved, and Marshall pronounced constitu tional !- N. Y. Amir. We, however, give the first sentence of the article, which our neighbor lias so basely used, and we also give the sentences which lie detached from the context, together with the two preceding and the subsequent one, so that our readers may see that that editor has acted a most dishonorable part a part only equalled in baseness by that of the atheist who would prove by the Bibb" that ulh'cre. is no God." The following is the first sentence of our article of July 1st: "Mil. Wm. O il. Robinsox This Post Office candidate for the Senate had been a Imco- We regret the necessity which constrains us to state that, unless our private advices from Washington mislead us and we do not think such can be the fact the doom of tiik Bank Hi i.i. is sealed! It is likely to be defeated in the Senate, and very probably has been ere this. The deplorable difference of opinion be- , J tween certain eminent Whirrs regarding the propiieiy oi eoiiiiuing to me JianK me umram-meled power of establishing branches in the States, is the rock on which we have split. -Mr. Clay -and a very large portion of the Whigs concur with him considers it the lesser evil to postpone the creation of a Bank at present rather than surrender for ever the power of Congress to authorize brandies, and thus efficiently regulate the currency. On the other hand, Mr. Archer of Va. will not vi to for any Bank; Messrs. Rives and Preston do not feel authorized, in view of the political attitude and presumed wishes of their respective States to vote for a Bank with power to place its branches in hostile States; and Mr. Merrick of Md., is disinclined to vote for Mr. Clay's Bill. So the very strong- probability now is that it will never go to the House. We have said that we regret this; but, if the Whigs are true to themselves, it will prove but a transient misfortune. Six or seven of the Loco-Foco Senators most unequivocally misrepresent their constituents for instance, Perry Smith of Ct., Silas Wright of N. Y., Mou-ton of Leu., Tappan and Allen of Ohio, &.C- These cannot hold out and hold on for ever. But immediate relief is almost certain. Ten nessee is now represented in the Senate by one shared with me the amusements and incidents of boyhood will long have a place in my affections. Many of them have gone to other States, and to other climes, and not a few have sunk into the silent tomb, whither we must soon follow them. Ta meet once more, after an absence of many years, with those who still remain, and to join with them in the commemoration of our national freedom, and to renew our vows to the Constitution, and best interests of the Country ,would indeed be highly gratifying. But other engagements and other duties demand my presence at home, and I am therefore compelled to decline the honor which you have extended to me.' ! I cannot close this brief note without adverting to that part of your tetter which refers to American labor and industry. When we contemplate, that it is industry which provides and prepares the rich harvests, the green mea dows, and adorns our hills and valleys with herds and flocks, and makes tlie husbandman independent' and venerable when guiding the plough in the furrow; that it is industry which covers our rivers, and lakes, and seas with all the abundance and ornaments of civilized life; that it is industry which beautifies all with el egance and variety, by the successful applica tion of the arts, we must indeed admit that it is a subject of the. deepest importance to the American People. I hat the Lmted States contains within their limits, resources amply sufficient to enable them to become a omul manufacturing country, is a universally acknowledged truth. The expediency of encouraging American industry is also a truth too obvious to require either com ment or proof. Notwithstanding all this we see the interests of our own industry neglected and declining, while the wealth of our country is most prodigally expended in the purchase and use of those articles of forei gn manufacture, which our own citizens are fully competent to furnish. Thus it is that the country is deluged by the profusion of foreign importations, and the people; deceived by the appearance of plenty. One jrreat evil of this policy and practice is, the introduction of a prepossession in favor of foreign commodities, which is altogether Anti-Amcrican, and which is one great cause of that distress w Inch is now the subject of general complaint. American, industry is an object of too much importance to be neglected. In its prosperity, all classes of the community are deeply interested and tlie efforts of public men are always usefully employed, irhilc promoting and improving domestic industry . This should be done by kxampi.e, as well as ey pkk- cept, and I believe the day is not far distant, when creri public man will feel it to he his duty and his pride to .ippear dressed in cloth of Jim erica n run nujucture. You will accept my best wishes for yourself and each member of the committee with whom, and also for the people whom you represent. Yours &c, JOHN BANKS.

Its fate in the House cannot be counted upon with so much certainty, because we have, as yet, had no discussion and no vote upon the subject in that body. The best advices, however, encourage tlie opinion that the Bill from the Senate will also pass the House. As to the course of the President, we have no authentic information. Indeed, it is quite probable that his views and determinations are unknown, except to the members of his Cabinet and a few confidential friends. Sonic of man to such Whigs as Shinn, Little and Brackenridge, and that we noticed the matter early to give him an opportunity to explain when lie became convinced that Porter was not "the noble minded Governor" which he called him e-leven months previous. Two days after that article appeared, Mr-Parkin distinctly stated that our article was 'totally false;' and that 'we kneic it to be false.' So reckless is he of his character for truth, when he thinks it necessary to disseminate 41 falsehood. Thus, this morning, he impudently says: "The whole tenor ofthe Gazette's article was to convey the impression that Mr. Robinson ! was, when nominated, a Porter man. ' Wh en was a more barefaced or impudent j false hood uttered.- We think we inio-ht leave ' the matter here, but will made an additional remark. ; That editor this morning says: "Whether Mr. Robinson was a Porter man at any time during the year 18 10 is a matter of w consequence to us." Now, if this is true, why did that editor, on both the 3d and 10th of jhiVj iabor to proye U)at Mr. Robinson was a mere dupe and tool of ours, and that the resolution in fa vor of Porter passed in August 110, was dictated by us, "-gainst the pricate inclinations of Mr. Ilobinson."" We are aware that certain whig leaders hoid Mr. Robinson very cheap, and are making use of him, but we do not think that they would set to work to stultify him in a matter which was of "no consequence" to them, as th Advocate now alleges. We can conceive no inducement the Advocate could have in stultifying Mr. Robinson, in relation to a matter which they believed to be of "no consequence." A friend has jestingly remarked to us, that the policy of the Advocate in proving Mr. Robinson to be a tool of ours was to gain him yotes, by letting the Antimasons know that he stitutional scruple.-; on tne sunjecr, as must induce him to veto the bill, should it authorise branches without the consent of the States. This opinion, indeed, has been repeated so positively, that many believe that it is well founded. Our own view is, that before the bill reaches the President, it will be modified sufficiently to obviate his principal objections; and that hence, a veto will be avoided. Our fear is that the bill will be so altered or amended, as to deprive it of many of its most useful features, and thus to render it imperfect. Pair). Inquirer. A Nkw Movement.

We published in full last winter the abk speech delivered by John Banks, in Congress, in 13o, in favor of domestic manufactures and a protective tariff. We have the pleasure this week of laying before our readers the following letter from the same sterling advocate of our country's interests, to the committee of arrangement at Lewistown, who had invited him to attend their celebration ofthe fourth of July. This letter needs no comment. Like every thing which emanates from John Banks it is plain, clear, business-like, and explicit. There is no mystery, no non-commitalism about him. He at once comes to the point, says, what lie he has to say in such a manner that no one can be deceived as to his meaning, and always, in our opinion, says just the right thing His late letter pledging himself, in effect, to one term, has been universally admired, not only for its lucid style, but for its democratic sentiments, contrasting as they do most strongly and favorably with the adverse sentiments and practice of his opponent, Mr. Porter.

We Iearri, says the Albany Advertiser'from Mr. HilIyer,one of the New York Deputy Sheriffs, who arrived from Utica this morning, that McLeod remains for the present in the custody of the Sheriff of Oneida county. What further course of proceedings will be taken is not yet determined. McLeod, it is said, is anxious to go to a jury forthwith; should he determine upon this course, the application for a writ of error on the judgment of the Supreme Court, as intended by his counsel, will, of course, be abandoned."

It was perhaps the slave Trade that lost America to England, and the crime was thus punished at its height, and within view of the spot "where it was committed. The three great Slave Traders, whom it was found impossible to persuade or restrain, are France, Spain and Portugal. And in what circumstances are the colonies now placed for whose peculiar support this dreadful traffic was carried "on? France has totally lost St. Domingo, the finest colony in the world, 'and her colonial trade is a cypher. Spain has lost all. Portugal has lost all. Spanish America and the Brazils are severed from their old masters forever. And what have been especial calamities of the sovereigns of those countries? They have been all three expatriated, and the only three. Other sovereigns have suffered temporary evil under the chances of war; but France. Spain, and Portugal have exhibited the peculiar shame of three dynasties at once in exile: the Portuguese flying across the sea, to escape from an enemy in its capital, a -id hide its had in a barbarian land; the Spanish d. throned, and sent to display its spectacle of mendicant and deceprit royalty through Europe and the French doublj? un- By S.
