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. The frequent re
proof of his wife, such as
" Had yoil any doors in the house where
you were raised f" or
"Please to shut that drawer, will you Mr.
Jones?" or

mat touched her husband's feelings, as she
laid aside the dressj " how touch trouble you

Mr. Jones asked, as if a new idea had bro
ken in upon his mind. " I am sure I am sor
ry for it."
" Indeed you do. If you would bhly be
more inougiiitui, you would save me a great
aeai. i snail have to wash out the dress my

" I am very sorry indeed. Jane. It was
careless trick in me, I must confess: and i
you will forgive mo, I will promise not to of-

All this was new. Both Mr. and Mrs
Jones felt surprized at themselves and a
each oilier. He had offended and die did
not get angry; she had been annoyed and
he was really sorry for what he had done.
Light broke into both their minds, and both
made an instant resolution to be more careful
in future of their words and actions towards
each other: and thov were more careful..

One day he came to dinner. It was a hot
day. 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. Her
husband expected a slorm, hut no storm
broke. He looked nt his wife, she lifted his
hat from the bed and put it on the mantle-
niece took his hoots and put them in the
closet from which she brought out his slip
pers and placed them beside htfri, but he did
not understand tho expression of her fiice,
exactly, nor feel comfortable about it. Mr.
Jones did not seem angry but hurt. After
she had handed him his slippers, sho took
the soiled dress from the clothes bnsketyover
which she had spent nearly a half an hodr
nt the ironing table, and attempted to move
the dirt which the boot had left upon it.
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 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

Governor Briggs, of Mass., in a speech at

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
