Economy lu a Family.
There is nothing which goes so far toward pla
cing young people beyond the reach of poverty, as
economy in the management of their domestic af
fairs. It matters not whcthci man furnish little
or much for his family, if there is a leukage in hia
kitchen or in the parlor, it runs awiy he km.w
not how, and that demon wis e cKe more, like
the horteleeche's daughter, until he thai provided
baa no more to give. It ia the husband's duty to
bring into the house, and it ia the duty of the wife
to see I hnt nothing goes wrongfully out of it i ot

it opena the door for ruin to atalk in, and he scl.lo.n
leavea an opportunity unimproved. A man gct a
wife to look after hi affairs, and to espial him in bis
journey through life, lo educate and prepaie hi
childicn for a proper station in life, and not to dis
sipate bi property. The husband's interest shuld
be the wife's caie, and her greatest ainlnlion c..rry
her no further than his welfare or happiness, togeth
er wi.h that of her children. Tbia should le her
sole aim, and the theatre of her exploits in the bos

wards milking a fortune a he can in the work
shop or the counting room. It ia not the money
earned that mnkee a man wealthy it is what he
saves from his earning. A go. id and prudent hus
band maki s a drpo.ite of the fruii of hi !u'or wi h
his best friend ; and if tho friend be not true lo him,
what has he to hn e ! If he dure not place confi

7Hi Jlonty tllarltrt.
The week that haa Jmt gone by, h i been one
of extraordinary political xcitcmrnt. Wa have
had all sorts of nlorio in cireulntion, and even the
most moderate of our citizens have had little oppor
tunity of attending to buines. Money, neverthe
less, bos been somewhat more in demanJ, while
stocks have experienced little or no change. The
impie sion prevails that the money rates will con
tinue to increase lo some extent, as the period fur
a general resumption of specie payments approaches.
Doubt ore s'ill expressed in some quarter", as to
the practicability of thorough and successful re
sumption by all our monetary Institution. The
argument held by thce doubters is, that under ex.
isting circumFtunci a, tho loan to the Eaat will not
be obtained, and that without that tonn, the consum
mation ao devoutly wished, will not be practicable,
Post Notes, they say, will not answer the purpose 5
nd they state the ca-e thus. Suppose a Philadel
phia Bank is indebted to New York $500,000, and
that hat Bank, in order to assist resumption, ac
cents $500 000 of the Post Notes of the Bank of
the I'niti d Stales, and gives in return for those post
notes, (500,000 of the U. S. Batik notes piyuli'n
on demand. Suppose then, that a gvnrral resump
tion should be agreed upni and attempted. A!--o,
that Niw York, find.ng herself prc-cd for specie,
should xciid on from New York, and demand from
the Bank above a'lu.led to, $500,000 in specie. Of
whit avail would U. S. Bank post notes lie to the
Phi'adelphia Bank under such ciicu na'oncc They
would not be received by New York, and rdio
would thus, by a resumption, have placed herself in
a position lo enable ht-r Eastern crcd toia to drain
her of coin. The doubters go on lo argue, that our
Banks are not sufficiently weak in inUlli cl and fore
thought, to place themsolve in snca a dilemma, and
that hence, a general resumption is impracticable.
Still, il U but right to add, that our banks have a
greed to loan the U. S. Bank five mil i ins, in the
manner hcrelofoie dcrcribctl. Tiue, the arrange
ment wa entered into, under the excepti m that the
East would come forwarJ and assist the measure
by every means in their jiower. We indu'go a
ho moreover, that pome plan will be hit upon,
cntcul ,ti d to oliv a e the difficu'ty, even shoulJ the
Eastirn Banks be unalile to assist in the way of a
loan. Those in favor of icsump ion, say that
measure must and will le catrieJ into elLct al eve
ry bazaid. They argue that the Banks are bound
by law to resume on the 15 h of January that the
Governor stands pledged lo cocice resumption by
every meana iu his power, and that thus, cvm were
it possible for the new Legislature to he-itule they
would not be able to aeetue veto of two third in
toth Houses, in order to obviate the decision of ihc
Governor. Public opinion, they aJd, is still more
ow'Cilul lhan all these rcayns, and it will insist u
pon resumption at ihe proj r lime. Our Bank D.
rectors, generslly speaking, talk of resumption a
thing of course, especially those of the U. S. Bank.
They appear to look u,on the matter with confi
dence and certainty, while it is not disguUtd that
assistance from the other Banks is necessary to se
cure the resumption of the Bank f the United
State. The measure is one of deep importance to
the tuaines community, and it is therefore that we
have feit it 10 be duty to give the pros anj cons
on both sides. A satisfactory arrangement with re
g.ird to the Eai ern debt, would rend. r the thing
easy and practicable but without such an arrange
ment, we f ar that serious difficulties may arise.
Th4 resumption Movement Completed !
It i confidently slated that such an arrangement
baa been made with E a -tern Capitalists, aa will si
cure the resumption of specie payments 011 the 15th
of January. It is understood that tbe debt due to
the Eot by the Banks of Philadelphia, is to be se
cured by an issue of Po.-t notes on the part of our
Banks generally, inte id of ihe Post notes of the U.
8. Bank, o at first proponed. A taiLf.ctory ar
rangctnmt will nodouhrbe made hi tween other
Bunks of Philadelphia and the U. S. Bank. This
movement cannot hut inspire a con idcruble d grea
ofconfidei.ee in our monetary c rele, while as tho
eiiod of resumpti n approaches, we n.u-t expect
that moni y will ttfcutne Ices abundant. JEcIhicWm
The Ledscr slate that the slory somo week
since put in circulation that the Bank of the Uni
ted States hud anticipated a debt due to the Genera!
Government of J.00,000, now turna out thu. as
detailed by a cotempor.ny.
"An instalment t.ff 300,000 was due the Chero
kco-Indians, weal of Missouri arid Ark-man, by the
Fid ral Government. The I'tiitcd Stotca Batik
despatched an agent for the pu pose of anticipating
the payment in her own dishonored link a, inateud
of p ying thil amount into the Irea-ury, as requ'
red by lew, in specie fund. By thi operation the
bank would h ive saved 3 per cent., or lf i4,000,
which the poor Indiana would have been shaved
out i f. The e waa no doubt etite.tairied tut the
operation would be successful, and il Waa accord
ingly rumored al out thai the l ank bad made ad
vances lo governra nt. It turned out, however, tint
the barbarous tavagea were too uncivil z- d to un
derstand the stjprrioiity of depreciated paper to the
precious nietl, and u'teily refused lo take il.
Thi spiibd the arrangement, and the governtmnt

among the people of Arkansas and Missouri.

that tho Bank of Illinois arid the Cairo B .nk are
