leaving them to the local Government of the State, becomes more and more manifest with every year's experience of the operations of our system. In a country of limited extent, with, but fow such objects of expenditure, if the form of government permitted it, a common treasury might be used for their impovement with much less inequality and justice than in one of the vast extent which ours now presents Jn population. The treasury of the world would hardly be equal to the improvement ofevery. bay, inlet, creek and river in our country whic" h might be supposed to promote the agricultural, manufacturing, or commercial interests of a neighborhood.' : The Federal Constitution was wisely adapted in its provisions to any expansion I our limits and population; and with the advance of the Confederacy of the states in the career of national greatness, it be-' comes more apparent that the harmony of the Union, and the equal justice " to which all its parts are entitled, require that thd Federa...

Hessian Fly. -Wheat being the great staple of the west, erery thing, therefore, which effects its culture will be interesting, not only to the farmers, but to the whole community. And as the fly, is a formidable enemy, of tbat.precious grain, a short history of a may not fye amiss. Here, is a description we believe, from the pen of W. Gaylord: "It 13 & very small black insect, not so largo as a moscheto, with two fine trans parent wings, from the roots of which three, ribs diTerge, as through the leaf of a plant. The body. ; when examined by a microscope, is found to be divided into foui segments -with a few hairs observable on each. The legs are yellowish cast, and transparent; the ' head inflected with a short proboscis. ; "This, as is common with nearly all other insects passes through four distinct stages of eiiMence: 1st, the egg: 2d, the larva; 2d the pupa, or dormant state; and 4tb, the perfect or winged insect.
