It must be said, that Mr. Jones was a very trying marl iiideed, as his wife had alleged. He could open closets and drawers as handy as any one, but a thought of shutting either never entered his mind.

He went up into the chamber where his wife was sitting, and threw himself into a large rocking chair; took off his hat and tossed it over the bed right, in the midst of half a dozen lace collars newly done up, and kicked off his boots with such energy that one of them landed upon the bureau, and the other in the clothes basket, soiling a whilo dress iust from the ironing lablp.--- Poor Mrs. Jones was grievously tried.

But she tried in vain. The pure white mus lin was hopelessly soiled, and would have to go to the washing tub before it would be again fit to wear. The West Its National Heart The Character of its People. There is word, " great-hearled," in our lansuase. which we believe has not yet travelled across the Atlantic, but which seems oeculiarlv an- .il . - i . r pncaoie w one part ot our country, and thai is the West. The recent consummation of the annexation of Texas, has brought out traces of popular character which an observ er will mark and ponder over as eminently illustrative of the different sections of our Republic. wnuethe Bouth have received the news of this union wilh lively feelings of joy, the worm with a steady soberness, and the East with a calculation of the future commercial and manufacturing advantages of annexing so vast and teruie a domain as Texas, the West seems to break out in a very madness oi joy. " a new btate," is the cry which sweeps across their wide plains and rich val leys, INo tears for the future darken their rejoicings. They look upon Annexation as a grand and glorious national measure, in adding another Star to Our confederacy. The West have certainly room enough for many more States. It contains an area for our surplus population, for a hundred years to come, and yet, throwing aside all selfish fears, they rejoice wilh a perfect delight over the addition of a new and tempting field of emigration. May we not justly say the "great-hearted West"? It is frequently asked, why are the west em people so peculiarly colossal in their no tions of things and the future prospects of our nation Does not tins inspiration spring irom tneir extraordinary country? The mighiy rivers, their vast sealike lakes, the noble and boundless prairies, and their mag, nificent forests, afford objects which fill the mind to its utmost capacity, and dilate the heart with greatness, lo live in such splendid country, amid such scenery, expand a man's views of everything in tho world.

Governor Briggs, of Mass., in a speech at moany, related the following thrilling incr dent. At a certain town meeting in Pennsyl vania, the question came up whether any persons should be licensed to sell ruin. The clergyman; the deacon, and physician, slrange as it may now appear, all favored it. One man only spoke against ir, because of tho mischief it did. The question was about to bo put, when all at once there arose from one corner of the room, a miserablo female. she was thinly clad, and her appearance in dicated the utmost wretchedness, and that her mortal career was almost closed.

Banking. It is fortunate for the people of Louisiana, that the power of creating and renewing charters for Banks, is forever taken away trom the (ieneral Assembly. In future the currency will be composed entirely of coin, the rate of which is regulated accor ding to its intrinsic value. By this means we shall be blessed wilh an unchangeable and invariable circulation, and consequenily our trade will not be subject to those ruin ous and frightful revulsions, produced in former times by the recklessness of bank directors, in issuing tlieir streams of naner. Those revulsions with their principal cause will be felt no longer; at least it is at all times in the power of the representatives of tho people to say to the few banks that now drag on a weary and languid vitality, that their paper Operations must cease. The la bors of the convention have not been vain. This striking of the banks out of existence is ample recompense for all trouble of the people in getting up the convention and all the expense of money that attended it. Five or six years ago. one could scarcely take up a newspaper, without seeing an ac count of some explosion of a paper money nop, ii not in mis cny or its immediate vi cinity, at least in a more remote part of the Union. At present these accidents are rare. The banks are greatly reduced in number, and those that remain above ground, are so watched by the people and their public ser vants, that it is difficult for them to enter upon a course leading to insolvency. Afier two or three generations shall have passed away, should some one write a full and accurate history of the banking svstnm as it flourished in this coun'fy and in these times, posterity will find a difficulty in be lieving that their forcfalherscoul I have been so dull and so stupid as to permit a collec tion of half a dozen irresponsible individuals to usurp the sovereign privilege of manufac turing paper nolos and passing them off as Cuba and Liberty.
