SIR; It is now past 12 o'clock at night, and I therefore date February instead of January. Long have I delayed an epistle to my by-gone predecessor, in hope of devoting to him, a leisure hour. But I begin to fear that were I to wait for that hour, we should go down to our graves without my boring you with a letter. For several days past I have been trembling with apprehension that we should seriously embarrass the State with extravagant a propriations, and there y break dovn the Whig Party in Ohio. have been too much engaged, --occupied too much of my time, in the current business of the Session, to ma e myself acquainted with the duty and details of State matters at large. But I am sufficiently advised to state, that our debt is between Six and Seven Millions, and that our debt and liabilities, amount to nearly, perhaps, quite Ten Millions. I entertain the keenest, liveliest, apprehensions, of the coming Summers' o erations. All through which we have passed, is "tarts and cheese cakes, ' to that which is yet to be visited upon us; unless, indeed, our "Wicked rulers," should stay their withering hands, and retrace their steps--and of that I see not one ray of hope!!! But that we dare not discredit the wisdom of our own senses; cannot shut our eyes to that which is passing before us--it would seem to exceed all human belief, that the war against the Banks should still be waged with so much fierceuses. The people, principally our own peo le, owe the Banks of Ohio, about seven millions more than the pa er 0 those Banks, in circulation. Where are our people to raise Seven illions over and above the amount of Ohio paper more
