Friday, January 13, 1826.-  The Senate met pursuant to adjournment.

On motion of Mr. Casey, Ordered, that the report of the committee, elected to examine into the state and condition of the Bank of the state of Alabama, be spread on the journals.  The report is as follows:

The joint committee, appointed by both branches of the general assembly, to examine into the situation and condition of the Bank of the State of Alabama, respectfully report- That the paper hereunto annexed, (marked A,) is an expose of the situation and condition of the Bank, up the 9th day of January, 1826.  From this statement it will be perceived that the sum of four hundred and forth-eight thousand eight hundred and fifty-nine dollars is due to the Bank, on notes discounted to individuals.  it cannot be expected from the committee, to say that this money has been loaned exclusively to solvent persons, and that the debts are entirely safe; but so far as the committee have been able to ascertain the situation of the debtors to the Bank, they have not discovered that the Institution will sustain any loss from the debtors now due.

The situation of the Bank, as exhibited by the statement hereunto annexed, speaks for itself; but the interest of the Institution and of the State, may require from the committee, an expression of their opinion, as to the solvency of the Bank, and its ability to meet the demands against it.  On this subject, there can be no difference of opinion.

The committee were appointed at a late period of the present session of the general assembly; and the short space of time allowed to them has had the effect of prescribing certain limits to their examination; but they are perfectly satisfied as tot he correctness of the report which they now submit, and that the Institution is entitled to the confidence of the public.

THO'S D. CRABB, Chairman on the part of the Senate.

(Signed,)                      T. L. HALLETT, Chairman on the part of the House.
