One of less sensibility and fineness of organization might hot havo felt it; but for her, the knowledge that despite all her efforts, she still failed to satisfy her husband, that he was contin ually comparing her U hie own" mind with others, to her disparagement, was a mpst cruel trial to. her loving nature; a trial that, continued through long years was stealing her bloom, and" even sapping th fountain of life. And yet Ralph Miner seldom spoke harshly to his wife, or tliwarte'd -her wish es in anything relating to the externals of life. He provided her a pleasant home filled with comforts, if not with luxuries. A woman who had been rightly brought up, he- thought, would ask 110 more; and if anything in Ivdith's words, or manner, ever indicated the unsatisfied want of her heart it was his custom to attribute it to ishncss,1 fcc. lie was not heartless, but even as a limb,, or' bodily organ, by lrwg neglect of excreise, becomes withered an incapacitated, so his heart,' (as he h:il ne ver discovered the practical use of a heart,) by long, neglect; h:td become inactive and paralysed. - ' For the rest, he-. was a through, thriv ing, business man, temperate and moral, in all thin?", upright and honorable, res pected by all who knew him; beloved alas, by one! 'Does he?' asked Edith with a sweet friendly smile, 'It must be very encour aging.' ' And then crowding on her mem ory came the innumerable instances, when after some like innoc.ent display of house wifery thrift, she had looked in her hus bands face for a smile, listened for an ap proving word looked and listened in vain. Arc these things trifles? 'Don't you know,' continued the shrewd and sociable, but not very judicious Mrs. Barton; 'don't you know that husbands, all the world over, are divided into two classes those .who can see nothing but good ia their individual wives, believing them far superior to any .other man's wife; and those who appear to hold the exact contrary to this, viz:-tliat their wives sel dom or never do anything quite right, and are. in ', fact, the most faulty and im perfect of women. I do not mean that they publicly proclaim this,' but that it is their secret ffie.ling. ' Now my hus band, I am happy to say belongs to the former class. Whatever. mistakes I may make, I am jurc that the kindest construc tion, will bc5. put'.on my actions,, and the pleasure I feci in dojng well, is eloubleel by his readiness to perceive and applaud my well doing. VI 'often wonder What would have been my fatu, had I" married a, cold hearted,, unappreciative man.

'1 aot jour condemvaion too sweep ing?' asked Edith. . 'Some-men .as wcli as women, are reserved by nature; not unfeeling, -but fr from demonstrative in their feelings. Don't you think that much seeming indifference on the part of hus bands is ouiig to this fact?' - r'No I am pretty well convinced that where love exists, it, will make itself -man-ifcEt to its object.. Of course, selfish and lapricions men,; passionate and obstinate men, willact out -their natures upon oc casions, but no man who traly loves his wife, will persist long in a course which he sees makes her, -unhappy.; No more in a coarse of indifference- than a cbnrsc of tyranny.

I shall proceed to give his testimony concerning Sinitti without further preface: ''-.''' "The great name of Adam Smith rests upon' the inquiry 'into the nature and causes of the Wealth of Nations; per haps the only book which produced an immediate, general, and irrevocable change in some of the , most important parts of the legislation , of all civilized States. The works of Grotius, of Locke, and of Montesquieu, which bear a resemblance to it in character, and had no inconsiderable analogy to it in the extent of their pop ular influence, were productive only of a general amendment, not so conspicuous in particular instances, as discoverable, after a-timc, in the improved condition of hu man affairs. ' The work of Smith,, as it touched those matters which may be num-? bered, and measured, and weighed, bore more , visible and" palpable fruit. In a few vca.rs it began to alter laws and trea ties,, and has made its way throughout the convulsions of revolution and conquest to'a" dne ascendant over the minds of men, with a far less than the average of those obstructions of prejudice and clamor which ordinarily, choke, the . .channels through which truth flows iuto practice."
