The Philadelphia Banks suspended at 1 o'clock on Thursday. The Bulletin, of that afternoon, says: The suspension was determined on as a precautionary measure, to enable the Banks to expand their discounts and thus aid our business men, and to prevent any of the wild scenes of 1857. The Banks are strong and abundantly able to meet all their liabilities.--While we regret that it should have been thought necessary for the Banks of Philadelphia so soon to follow the example of those of Baltimore, Washington and Virginia, we trust it may prove advantageous, and bring us sooner to a brighter prospect. There has been but little excitement attending this suspension, thus contrasting most singularly with the panic of 1857. At a meeting of merchants, at Alexandria, Va., Thursday, the following resolution was adopted: Resolved, It is the opinion of this meeting that the suspension of specie payments by the Banks of this city, is justified by the force of recent events beyond

A New York letter to the Philadelphia Ledger says: The influence of this action was very favorably felt in the street, in the course of the afternoon, and paper was more saleable at lower rates. Philadelphia funds were quoted at 1 per cent discount. Southern money, however, could not be got rid of short of 25 per cent, with the exception of New Orleans, which was done at 10. Illinois and Wisconsin, 15; Ohio and Kentucky, 10. The Stock Market at the First Board was lower, but the proceedings of the bank meeting had the effect to improve prices at the Second Board. Notwithstanding all these favorable symptoms, however, I am bound in duty to add, that the prevailing opinion among bankers and merchants, is that there will be a total suspension of specie payments here in less than thirty days from date — the great fact sticking out that the cause of all the present trouble — threa

This plan of relief, or mode of meeting a crisis, though new to this country, is the approved and successful policy, under similar circumstances, of the National Banks of England and France, and the reasons which impel it to success, with the exchanges all right, are, in the present sound condition of a trade simply overtaken by panic, perfectly irresistible. And, for one, we have little question of its wisdom if carried out, as we have every reason to believe it will be, with the same boldness of action and unanimity of purpose, as well as mutual good faith, which inspired it. We desire to express no hasty opinion or confidence as to how this matter is to work.--Its suc
