A notes intended to be offered for discount must be deposited in a Box prepared for that purpose at the Bank within banking hours and May be left any Day in the week proceeding the discount Day. A the Money May be drawn for for framing a new Constitution for the old Dominion. Since the convention of that body of sages who framed the Federal Constitution there has been none in the nation which excited a deeper and More pervading interest than that of this Virginia convention. This great interest did not Spring so much from the nature of the work to be done As it did from the venerable character lofty standing and exalted intellects of the artists employed number of the Norfolk Ilea Coa l m a very excellent article on Thia subject. From it we make the Sab sequent extracts. A five years will this Day elapse since the convention which framed the present Constitution of Virginia commenced its session in the capital. We can scarcely bring ourselves to believe that so Many precious years have passed in apparently so Short a time. There Are some reflections of a More interesting character than such an anniversary naturally excites. It was a bout mid Day that or. Madison Rose from his seat and in a few words spoken Low and under great Embarrass ment nominated or. Monroe to the chair. It is not going too far to assert that the convention and the Community at Large were ready to assign that honorable station to the Sage of Montpelier but his prompt nomination of or. Monroe As Well As his own feelings it is said previously ascertained induced that body to adopt his motion without dissent. If or. Madison was embarrassed in nominating or. Monroe the latter was More than embarrassed in returning Bis thanks from the chair. It was however a time of general excitement. Probably Virginia had never seen As Many of her distinguished sons gathered together and when the voice of the venerable Madison broke the stillness of the scene when we saw Madison amp Marshall conduct their compatriot to the chair and heard him pronounce in faltering tones his votive tribute to those who had entered on him the distinguished Honor of presiding Over their deliberations we Felt a fullness in our own bosom which would induce us to Pardon the feelings of others. Some of the elder members of the body freely shed tears it is said a from the gallery where we were we saw none ourselves but the scene was touching to one of warm feelings and generous sensibilities. We May More really imagine than describe the feelings of or Madison judge Marshall and or. Monroe. They had sat before in a similar body and of All those valiant spirits that forty years before had assembled near the same spot where they then sat with the exception of two others not members of the present body they alone survived. They had not been in any Public body since and the memory of Grayson Wythe Pendleton Mason Lee Henry and their other compatriots flitted across them. And Here by the Way in looking Over the names of those who sat in the convention of 1788 and 1828, we see exemplified the wonderful effects of the statute of descents. There Are with the exception of or. Madison judge Marshall and or. Monroe scarcely half a dozen of the names in the one to be found in the other and those not Lineal dece adapts and for the most part not related to each other and this too in the old Dominion and in the space of forty years. Farther to give the Good old statute its due Praise we will say at the hazzard of the imputation of rashness that if the convention of �?T88 could have appeared in proper person or by their Lineal and we might add Doddridge and Randolph but who would have thought that the recording Angel had written the names of , Campbell Powell Morris Cloyd Wilson Macrae Green Taylor. Mennis rates and Bayly in the Book of death men who a chances of life seemed not Only As Good As those of i hair colleagues hut equal in those of the same number of men to be found any where yet the old and infirm Are left Ted citizen of Southern City called at to weep Over their ashes when we our Post office and said. A have you a late consider the diminution of numbers the got any letters for me a what your . I a a .1---1--� a a a escapes with her life the intrigues of her court it will be More matter of wonder than if she Falls an Early victim. A Man who forgot his own name. A it is a fact Well known to May persons in this City that some years since a highly respectable and Well Educa comparative health and youth of those who have died and the lapse of yet since the adjournment who Obj May be a opposed to Bear upon All but particularly the aged we almost Tarn am a from the conclusion that if a proportionate degree of mortality await the survivors in live years not More than one half will remain and in ten years from this Date at the same ratio scarcely a v a we began at the beginning and will end with the adjournment of the convention. If the beginning was a scene of emotion the conclusion was still More so. The tide of party ran Strong and full during a session of More than three months and every one in and out of the convention Felt More or less during the a Lime the intensity of excitement. But the time was come when old and Young a friends and enemies we ref about to part to meet no More. No Eye could have discovered the Cloud of death that i Hung Black Over them but we had almost said that imagination had gathered a Cloud even Darker than the reality. For a no one thought of the Strong and vigorous but every Eye seemed fixed on a few old men of exalted Talent k Public Worth who would soon leave us and be no More. And when the convention adjourned All pressed to shake by the hand these Ven a Erable men of the past age. We anticipate however a Little. On the last Day a of the session it was Early rumoured that or. Randolph would present he usual Resolution of thanks to the chair and a this tended to heighten the animation of a the Gene. We need scarcely add that a or. Randolph performed this Daty in his Hap Desi Mauner. Yoou after net. Or. I Leigh moved the adjournment judge Barbour the president of the body Rose and pronounced one of the most appropriate addresses to which we Ever lie tend. It was full of just sentiment and elevated patriotism and touched the heart of every one who Beard him. When be concluded Bis valedictory the moment was put and the convention adjourned sine Don Pedro. Hgt a eventful life of this celebrated Monarch was closed by death on the 24th of sept. The new York Star make the following remarks relative to Bis last moments a Don Pedro was As great and chivalrous in the closing hour Obj Jas existence As he had been in every event of his life. His a ruling passion for military glory was a Strong in death a As it had been on the embattled Field in the midst of his favorite troops. His Gallant daring his decision of character and reckless contempt of danger seem to belong to the Romance of the Feudal Ages. Among modern captains Napoleon no doubt was the Model of his ambition and the conqueror whose Fame lie would have coveted. But his <1 career was too soon ended to foretell what would have been the Meridian of j a Dawn auspicious and glorious. He was sensible to the last moment. J ust going the whole animal a a a a committee appointed by the Worcester agricultural society upon the Sinish multitude thus eloquently describe their enviable condition a me May talk and write about lie. Ing like pigs. To live like a pig i us live like a gentleman and a philosopher. His is the highest prawn an epitaph Ever bestowed to be useful a life and excellent in death. Although it is not permitted in the order of nature for a pig to laugh he enjoy the other great Blessing of humanity to be fat. Free from Banks business poll a a a a name sir a said the clerk.

A a a that a it a a me in Short it is eve said the gentleman and returned to. From an impartial comparison the the office told his name and obtained his letters. We were intimate with a retailer of dry goods in William Street in this City who on one occasion went into the Street to look at his sign to ascertain his name. This fact we had from the gentleman himself but he is no longer a tenant of this but we Trust of a better . N. Y. Gazette. We Are intimate with an estimable gentleman of this City formerly a master of a vessel who on speaking to a ship at sea absolutely forgot the name of the vessel he commanded and when asked the question was completely nonplussed and stuttered and stammered away at n grate rate. He finally Over came the difficulty by turning to his mate and inquiring the name of the ship he was in. Or. Of Boston Mer. Jour. Ripe made of wheat flour when taken out of the oven or Skillet is unprepared for the stomach. It should go through a change or Ripen before it is eaten. Young persons or persons in the enjoyment of vigorous health May eat bread immediately after being baked without any sensible injury from it but weakly and aged persons cannot and none can eat such without doing harm to the digestive organs. Bread after being baked goes through a change similar to the change in newly brewed Beer or newly churned Buttermilk neither being healthy until after the change. During the change in bread it sends off a Large portion of Carbon or unhealthy Gas and imbibed a Large portion of healthy or oxygen Gas. Bread has according to the computation of the physicians in London one fifth More Nutriment in it when Ripe than it has when just out of oven. It not Only has More Nutriment but imparts a much greater degree of cheerfulness. He that eats old bread will have More animal spirits than he would were he to eat unripe bread. Bread As before observed discharges Carbon and imbibed oxygen. One thing in connection with this thought should be particularly noticed by All housewives. It is to let the bread Ripen where it can inhale the oxygen in a pure state. Bread will always taste of air that surrounds it while ripening a hence it should Ripen where the air is pure. It should never Ripen in a cellar nor in a close cupboard nor in a bed room the noxious Vapours of a cellar or a cupboard never should in owe evident impartial comparison that for real Case luxury and Good living if a Man were not a Man he might As Well be a before he breathed his last he took an u ter Inlo an j porm a part of the bread a affectionate Farewell of his wife and�1 a a a daughter and of his favorite officers and soldiers Whoso Veteran Cheeks were furrowed by ii a tears during the affecting interview.

This we say in no improper spirit. We Revere almost to idolatry the great and Good name and of our fathers but we arc the discount Day. Money Are in the United states nearly seven Hundred local1 Banks besides the United states Bank and its 24 branches. The capital Stock of these Banks amount to upwards of two Hundred million of dollars upon which they Are authorised to Issue four Hundred i millions in paper. The whole amount old i Gold and Silver in the United states is estimated to be about fifty millions of dollars. The whole amount of Gold coined at the mint since the oct Law went into vol fact up to the 4 the inst. Was $ 1,528,000. Nan spirit that is perpetually seeking to sacrifice the present at the shrine of the past. # # # a in looking Over the list of names which were called Over and Over Day after Day and month after month till every one become disgusted at his own name some awful Blanks appear. Nearly one fifth of the original members Are in the grave now we would offer a Priori that such a body composed mostly of elderly men would soon pass away. 3ut, As if human anticipations were set at naught those have died who for the most part were Strong and Active and i cadres and As soon As it was put on threw himself Back upon his Pillow and without uttering a word Camly expired with a smile of exultation play ing on his lips. We had already shortly previous to the news of his death reaching America glanced at the memorable traits of this extraordinary Man Little thinking that in inviting that Short and deserved Eulogy we were writing As it were the epitaph upon his Tomb. But subjects like this so rare and so deserving of imitation by living monarchs never Tiro and can never be too often Dwek upon As the theme of Praise and As examples to be admired and of . Mugo of Brig Concordia arrived at new York from St. Ubes which place he left on the 15th of october states that intelligence had been received there from Lisbon dated the 13th, that Donna Maria the Young Queen lies Dan we eat. The writer of this article has often eaten bread of this kind and has Felt strongly disposed to lecture the mistress of the House on the subject of keeping bread in a pure atmosphere. Every Man and woman ought to know that much of health and Comfort depends upon the method of preparing their food. Bread should be Light Well baked and properly ripened before it should be eaten. Andrew Jackson s opinion of himself. �?1 shall Nevei forget the evening when in presence of or.

After Reading it he threw it Down in anger a a do they a think a said be a that 1 am such a a a do a fool As to think myself fit Lor president of the United states no sir 1 a a know what i am fit for i can com a Omand a body of men in a rough Way a but 1 am not lit to be we were silent but All gave him cred it As 1 afterwards found for this proof of Good Hrc Skenridge s letter. I Providence or sailors. The Boston journal relates the following anecdote of these Ecckles son of the Ocean. J it is a great pity that Jack cannot learn to provide for a Rainy Day. A Sailor on Shore is proverbially profuse with the Money which he received As a Guerdon for almost incredible hardships and risk of life. This May be seen from the conduct of the Potomac slate Crew who Are rambling a bout the City and spending their Money As if they were in Possession of an inexhaustible mine. A few Days since two of these genuine sons of Neptune jumped into a. Hackney coach and were passing slowly Down state Street when one of then perceiving a shipmate on the Side walk with whom he wished to speak and not being Able to let Down the Side window thrust his fist through the Glass and hailed his Friend. The Coachman stopped his Carriage and remonstrated angrily against such proceedings and insisted upon prompt payment for the damages. Jack asked the amount Jehu a sewed $1,50, Jack pulled out his Wallet and abstracted a $3 Bill put it into the hand of the Coachman who declared his inability to change it. A never mind a said Jack hitting the other Glass on the opposite Side with his Elbow a this will Square the Yards a a pair of them went into a fancy goods store last week to Purchase some handkerchiefs and ribbons which were put up in a neat package. They paid for the goods and one of them took the package in his hand when a thought seemed to Dawn on him. A Well my old boy a said he to the shopkeeper a did you take pay for the twine you have tied round the bundle i you did not Here a a Dollar for suiting the action to the word he threw Down a Selver Dollar and walked off. A curious anecdote is related of the cause of or. Rothschilds recent heavy loss by the fall of Spanish stocks. M. Toreno the present minister of finance in Spain was exiled by Ferdinand Vii after having been president of the cortex in 1823. He resided in Paris Lor a Long time and having become very much reduced in Bis circumstances applied to or Rothschild Tor a loan of Twenty thousand francs which was refused. When Toreno a Short time since was placed at the head of the Spanish department of finances. Or. Rothschild proposed to him a financial operation by which. He or. R., would have realized several millions Toreno not Only rejected it but knowing that Rothschild was a Large Holder of Spanish stocks proposed to the government the scheme of bankruptcy which has had the effect of Sud Denly depressing Spanish funds to such a degree As to cause a loss to or. Rothschild of 200,000,000f.
