T..!utd more than a hundred at:d fifty dollars!" Jtm I t l-a !J: th widow would not hear him ho cursed, she Extraordinary Ad venture. Two Parisian rr.er chants, strongly united in friendship, had each one child of aiderent sexes, who early contracted strong inclinations for each other, which was cherished by parents, and they were flattered with the expectations of being joined together for life. Unfortunately, at the time they thought themselves on the point of completing this leng-wished-for union, a man, far ad vanced in years, and possessed of an immense foitune, cast his eyes ou the young lady, and made honorable preposals; her parents could not resist the temptation of a son in-law in such affluent circumstances, and forced her to comply. As socn as the knot was tied, she strictly enjoined her former lov er never to see her, and patiently submitted to her fate; but the anxiety of her mind preyed upon her body, which threw her into a lingering disorder, that apparently carried her otX end she was consigned to her grave. As soon as this melancholy event reached the lover, bis affliction was dcubkd, being de piived of all hopes of her widowhood; tut, recollecting that in her youth she had been for some time in a lethargy, his hopes revived, and hurried him lo the place of her burial, where a good bribe procured the sexton's permission to dig her up, which he performed, and removed her to a place cf safety, where, by proper methods, he revived the almost extinguished spark of life. Great was her surprise at finding the state she had been in; and probably ps great was her pleasure, at the means by which she bad been recalled from the grave. As soon as she was sufficiently recovered, the lover laid his claim; and his reasons, supported by a powerful inclination ou her side, were too strong for her to resist; but as France was no longer a place of safety for them, they agreed to re move to England, where they continued ten years; when a strong inclination of -revisiting their native country seized them, which they thought they might safely gratify, and ac cordingly performed their voyage. The lady was so unfortunate as to be known by her old husband, whom she met in a public walk, and all her endeav ors to disguise herself were ineffectual. He laid his claim to her before a court cf justice, and tho lover defended his right, alleging the husband by burying her, had forfeited his title; and that he had acquired a just one by treeing her from the grave, and delivering her from the jaws of death. These reasons, whatever weight they might have in a court where love presided, seemed to have little effect on the grave sages of the law; and the lady, with her lover, net thinking it safu to wait the determination cf the court, prudently retired cut of the kingdom.

"I will tell you," continu ed the aunt to Louisa, "two things which I have fully proved The first will go far towards preventing the possibility of any discord after marriage: the second is the best and surest pre servative of feminine character." "Tell me!" said Louisa anxiously. "The first is this: demand of your bridegroom, as soon as the marriage ceremony i3 over, a solemn vow never, even in jest, to dispute, or express any disagreement, i tell you ne ver ! for what begins in mere bantering, vvill lead to serious earnest. Avoid expressing any irritation at one another's words. Mutual forbearance is the great secret of domestic happiness; if you have erred conless it freely, even if confes sion costs you some tears. Further, promise fathfully and solemnly, never, upon any pretext or excuse, to have any se crets or concealments from each other; but to keep your pri vate affairs from father, mother, or brother, sister, and rela tions and the world. Let them be known only to each other and your Ged, Remember that any third person admitted to your confidence becomes a party to stand between you. They will naturally side with the one or the other. Prom ise to avoid this, and renew the vow upon every temptation. It will preserve that perfect confidence, that union, which will indeed make you as one. Oh, if the newly married would but practice this spring of connubial peace, how many unions would bo happy which are now miserable." Selected. Nu human being, however exalted his rank and fortune, however enlarged and cultivated his understand ing, can be long happy w ithout a pursuit. Life is a ladder on which we climb from hope to hop, and by expectation strive to ascend to enjoyments; bat he who fancies he has reached his highest hope is miserable indeed, or who enjoys the utmost of his wishes; for many who have been most suc cessful in their respective undertakings have given the gloom iest description of the emptiest of human pleasures. The pursuit alone can yield true happiness: and the most trifling object that ha power to facinate the hopes of man is worthy his sttter.ticn. : " ; The Banks. -i-On Sunday morning we announced the f unanimous opinion ot tne Hanks, with one solitary exception, to resume specie payments yesterday, and even that bank had not given a direct negative to the question of r v.irnption she was rnrrely cot represented at the meeting, at which it was Rgreed on. We hailed the announcement as : te commence ment of a new and a better era; we thought i would be the signal for the restoration of confidence the i-.elude to the improvement of business the harbinger of l-ter trade and better times. But what .vas our astonis.hmcm to find, yester day morning, that of the nine-banks which ha i resolved to re sume the payment of specie, two of them, th Consolidated Bank and the Louisiana State Bank, withdrew from their re solve, and in common with the Citizens Bank, refused to pay specie on the opening of their doors yesterday morning. This circumstance, and the reports so industriously circu lated by interested individuals, of the solvent condition of this institution and the bankrupt condition of that, created quite a panic among our community, and every one, from the holder of a V to him who had thousands placed to his credit in cer tain of the banks, seemed eager to convert it into the precious metal. The consequence of this feeling was, that the seven banks that commenced the good work of resumption, had what is called in technical phrase, a run on them' all day. They withstood it nobly. All hands were called to attend to the desires of claimants; indeed, the wish seemed io be with them, not how little, but how much they could reckon and pay out. As sheer justice to them, we will here give their names. They are The Bank of Louisiana, The Union Bank, The Canal Bank, The Mechanics and Traders Bank, The Carrolton Bank, The City Bank, The Commercial Bank AT. O. Picayune ofUh May, 1842. As extract. -What is the happiest community? what the city which should be chosen above all others as our home? It is that the members of which form one body, in which no class is a pre' to others, in which there is a general desire that every one may have au opportunity to develope his powers. What is the happiest community? It is not that in which the goods of life is accumulated in a few hands, in which property sinks a great gulf between different ranks, in which one portion of society swells with pride and the other broken in spirit; buta community in which labor is respected, and the means of comfort and improverm ut diffused. Is it a community in which intelligence is developed in a few, whilst the many are given up to ignorance, superstition and a gross animal existance; but one . in which the mind is so roverenced in every condition that the opportunites of its culture are afforded to all. It is a community in which religion is not used to bring the, many into iKjoeticn, Vt i ui"?ptm5etr even to the poorest, to secure them from the degrading influence of poverty, to give them generous senti ments and hopes, to exalt them from animals into men, into Christians, into children of God. This is a happy community, where human nature is held in honor, whereto rescue it from ignorance and crime, to give it an impulse towards knowledge, virtue and happiness, is thought the chief end of his social union. Dr. Charming. - The Ten n esc 3 Bsnks are expected to resume specie pay mcnti by the 10th, day of July. Extraordinary perormaxce of Divine Worship. Yesterday morning savs the London Times of April 18th, di vine service was performed at the Institution of the Refuge for the Adult Destitute Deaf and Dumb, in Bartlett's build ings, Holborn. The congregation was composed chiefly of deafand dumb persons; and this is the first attempt at instruc ting in scriptural doctrines, by puplic worship, that class of the suuering community, laboring under deprivation of the senses of hearing and speaking, ever made. The service was conducted in the following manner, and presented a most interesting scene: Mr. Rosser, a deafand dumb gentleman, performed, if it may be so termed, selections from the morning service, which was done by making signs with his fingers, and the rapidity with which he did it was wonderful. The Lord's Prayer was delivered entirely by pantominical ges tures and was a beautiful specimen of expressive silence. Af ter the morning service. Mr. S G. Simpson delivered a short but eloquent discourse from the 35th chapter of Isaiah, and it was conveyed to his audience through ihe medium of signs, as he slowly proceeded, by Miss. Janet Crouch, a remarkably intelligent little girl, only eight years of age, who, although neither draf or dumb, is as conversant with the signs as the oldest cf th adult deaf or dumb members of the institution. The rapidity ofthe childs motion by which she conveyed the discourse delivered by Mr Simpson, was astonishing. At the conclusion of the' discourse the deafand dumb were ask ed through the same medium of signs, whether they perfect ly understood what had been delivered, to which they assen ted. The singular spectacle of the Holy Scriptures being expounded by signs, Mras altogether of a most expressive na ture. The service will be continued for the present, at the Institution in Bartlett's buildings, every Sunday morning. It is in contemplation to have a regular place of worship in connexion with this society, for the deaf and dumb portion of the community, of whom it is estimated there are in London aione, several thousands, who will thus be enabled to partici pate in the benefits of the publishing of the Gospel, from which they have, up to the present time been debarred. N, O. Bulletin. . ; From the Keccebeck Journal. PASS IT ROUND The true . Whig, published at Washington, reminds Some citizens of Sandusky, Ohio, were a few nights ago attracted to an oik out-building, by cries from within of "Mur der! murder! come quick! he's eating me up !" and on enlering, found lying there a loafer a loafer who had gone to sleep, and two young twin calves sucking his ears The English papers speak in terms of great indignation of the bvtchery of their army at Cabool, and makeatrong appeals to the sympathy of their readers in behalf of the unfortunate men who have'lost their lives. We wish that the editors of these papers, or sciae who sympathize with them, would tell us by what right, or under what pretence of right, the British gove"rnm?nt had in array in Afghanistan; and whether they would hz the same ccinprrsion, if 6,003 Asiatics should be butchered in an attsmpt to subjrate the island. of TGreat Bnt tarn, and destroy its capital. -XJwan Cwrifrv , ,., .'.' , its readers and the public that in the two years previous to Gen. Jackson's war on our currency system, the number of banks created was 22, with a capital of 83,000,0000: that in ihe next two years the number of b:mks created was 2G3, with 8308,000,000 ; that the former banks were generally sound. and the latter have generally rwJ - .uunue Loco Fooos.ro now broking down the very currency they gave us, bad as it is, and are fuM reducing us tothe condition of no currency at all. And pass it round, we add, that by the reports of the Secre tary of the Treasury, it appears that the bank bills in circu lation in the whole Union, in 1816, amounts to 858,000,000. This was before the charter of the second U. S. Bank, and when we had been without a National Bank for four years. The charter of that Bank was then granted, with a capital of thirty five millions of dollars. Did expension follow? Oh no very far from it Fourteen years afterwards, or in 1830, the Whole amount of bank paper in circulation, from all the banks, was 661,323 S9S, being a decrease in fotnteen years, while the U. S. Bank was in operation, of nearly seven millions. ' Well, what next? The President vetoed a bill to re-charter the Bank in 1832, and then what followed! In 1S3T, the bank paper in circulation had increased to 8149,185,890. Or an increase, in seven years, of S37,SG1,992. These things are worth looking at. The facts are indisputable. ONE THING MORE. To show how the speculation fever was st a going, and when, as soon as the deposites were removed, there was a rush for them, and the money was takea to buy Western lands. Eastern timber tracts, &c and for this purpose money was borved of the banks, and new banks were created to make more bank paper to be used in the same way. In 1S30, the amount of bank lans of all the banks, Slate, and National, was ' 8200,331,214. In 1837, a year after the U. S. B. chatter had expired, the loans had increased to the enormous sum of 8525,115,702, in September of the same year., the banks stopped specie pay The next President From the moment we discover ed the plan of Mr. Tyler to disappoint and upset the party that raised him to power, we feared that the policy ofthc coun try would be thrown into confusion, and remain unsettled an other four years. Subsequent events have only confirmed that impression. Great, unutterable is tho responsibility of the man that could venture to put the country in this position. But so it is, and here we arc. None can be more sensible than we are, that the country needed repose, and none more reluctant to agitate the question of the next Presidency, out of season. It never would have been started, for at least some time to come, if the people had not been deceived. But now there is noavoiding it. One might as well at tempt to lay his hand upon the sun to stop it. It would be a miracle in either case. It is now, indeed, the only way to obtain ihe greatest degree of quiet -by agitation to suppress a wotse agitation. All is and will be confusion, till some star in the heavens shall be agreed upon to look at. For the Whig party of this country, thrown all aback by false dealing, not knowing what to do, we ask, where is the star ? Is it in the east, or in the north, or in the south, or it the Wall Whereisthe man known to us all, long known, tried, faith ful? Who is the man to whom tho eyes of the American people are now turned, and turning turning from all quar ters -turning as by the instinct of self preservation in a time of danger and distress turning m multitudes, by thousands and tens of thousands? We need not say that that man is Henry Clay. The al most utter hopelessness ot our condition, a3 forced upon the public mind by the deplored and deplorable infirmities of the Acting Chief Magistrate, has, within a brief period, within a few weeks, a few days even, brought out the Star cf the West in strong, bold,' impressive light before the people, as the Star of their Hope. It has lifted him upon high. There is no question made any where about. It is necessity, it is distress, it is the disorder of the times, that produce this una nimity. A disappointed people feel that they must look somewhere, and that they must have a trustworthy object. No more doubt, no more uncertainty, will ever do. The man that now comes up as the candidate cf the Whig party for the Presidency, must be true as the suu. There must be no cloud on his. history, on his position, on bis prospects. We can never bear another disappointment no never. ' It is the necessity of having a candidate in this unsettled stale of things, that brings up the question; and it is reasons like these which have directed public attentionso unanimous ly to Mr. Clay. True Whig. The able Washington correspondent of the Philadelphia United States Gazette says: "Calhoun is pushing hard for the Presidency, and with a fair prospect of being taken up as the Locofoco candidate. Calhoun and Woodbury, Van Burenaad Polk, Buchauan and King, Johnson and Porter these are the couples who hae paired ofJin the political contredance; and a pretty dance Clay and 'honest John Davis' will lead them." They have a very queer manner of weighing pork in Ioiva. They put a plank across a rail, with the hog on one end, pi ling stones enough on the ether end to balance then guess at the weight f the ftoncs.
