"What news from the West?" comes from him who faces the setting sun. The news is told pleasure beams from the eye or sor row clouds the brow according to the tenor of the reply.

We learn from the Richmond Whig that llio Mer- chants' and Mechanics' Bank of Wheeling have de- clined to make the usual semi-annual divided not- withstanding its surplus fund is $1039-1 52. The reason is-supposcd to be that from the general dc- rangment of business some unccrtanty hangs over some of ils discounts and the directors deem it advi- sable to prepare for contingencies. It seems the cir- culation has been reduced from the sum of $336GG0 (the amount on the 5th June.) to $280000. The occurrence of a regular boxing match in the neighborhood of Cincinnati has called forth the strong condemnation of the press of that city. A bctof$1000 depended on the issue of the fight the parlies to which were an Englishman named Owens and an-Irishman named McRcynolds. The combatants beat each other in a dreadful manner and as the fight drew" to a close both parties were scarcely able to stand. The proceeding is in di- rect...
