PRIVATE CORRESPONDENCE. mf Richmond, } r a. Dec. 18, 18IT Our Legislature s in session, and will be chiefly occup td in the revision of outlaws. The enmity against corporations seems rather to increase, 1 think than to diminish, though corporate bo-j dies are augmenting every day. This is paradoxical, 'i lie few who favor 1 them act in concert,' The many who oppose them, have hot the same meant of combining, nor die same art, nor the same activity. Thbse who mean ‘aie content with plain (hose who are designing, must resort to clocked ways. 1 do not think that the people of Virginia, any more than of Georgia and Tennessee,, look on our mammoth bank, as they call it, with Very favorable eyes. The town monopoly of bank dieLcounts, which the branch of tiiat bank here, by a fortunate rule, has, hitherto avoided the odium of, is now under consideration of the house of delegates.

Come neighbors draw near, 'Tis "the close of the year, A year that’s been fruitiul and healthy Ingratitude join, To th’ Being Divine, Who makes us thus happy and wealthy We’ve plough’d and we’ve sow’d We’ve planted and hoed. (The season uncommonly charming) Our harvests are great, Both the former and late— Sure this is the beauty of farming; We’ve corn and we've wheat, Cheese, butter and meat, Enough for ourselves and some more, And what we can spare, ’Mongst th’ needy we’ll share, Kor cease to remember the poor; Let the idle complain, And ramble in vain, An Eden to find in the West; They’re grossly deceived, Their hearts sorely griev’d. They’ll sigh to return to the East. We’rd fond of the toil Of tilling the soil, It makes us both active and strong, Jt quickens the blood, Gives rest to our food, Thus labor our lives will prolong. May-our orchards revive, Our flocks ever thrive, Our fields be preserved from fr...
