There was a great stir on State St. today in consequence of the unfavorable news from Philad. our capitalists have all been buying U. S. Bank postnotes and are very much alarmed. It is however generally supposed that the suspension of those banks will make money matters easier, tho' the suspension of specie payments is regretted, even to effect this object.-- I hope I shall not be obliged to purchase specie to pay my custom house bonds, tho I can easily procure it if necessary. I fear the news fr Liverpool will add only to the troubles in your city-- I hope you sustain no loss from any person in consequence of your late fire..."
