National Prosperity. lrue patriotism cannot be sectional tails character. The interests of town, county or State are not of sufficient magnitude to confine the love of his country to exertions in their behalf. The welfare and prosperity of the whole Union ought to be the first and greatest desire of every American; and his earnest endeavors should be constantly directed to the furtherance of that object. The most certain method of insuring Ihe prosperity of a nation is by diffusing education among the masses, and taking measures to secure to every citizen the opportunity to labor and the enjoyment of the comforts of life through (he work of his hands. "A fair day's wages for a fair day's work," is a good maxim, and ons worthy the consideration of all who desire to see the Condition of men elevated, and the rights of individuals respected. The only means by which so desirable a result can be attained is through the enactment of such laws as shall lend to develope the resources ...

Trift of the Yankee. In perfectly good humor, the Tuscaloosa Monitor, of the Hth inst., has given the following pungent and inimitable sketch; A mountain of granite appears rather a tough subject to deal with, yet a Yankee will burrow in its bdwels, and lo! the granite becomes gold in the vaults of the Commonwealth Bank in Boston. A pound ef ice present* a cheerless and chilly prospect to the eye, but the Yankee, nothing daunted, will heave up its chrystal masses, aad straightway the ice glitters in diamonds upon the bosom of his rosy-cheeked spouse.— Wherever, the Yankee lajreth down his hand, gold springeth. Into what soil soever be trustelh his spade, gold sproutelh therefrom. In the dim twilight, by his chimney corner, be sitteth meditating, and thoughts chase one another through the brain, which thoughts are gold. Various they ¦re, it may be in form and seeming. One is but a gridiron, another a baby-jumper, and a third a steam-engine, but he writelh them all down in the p...

The Hinehman Case. The Court at Philadelphia has been engaged for a long time in the case of Hinehman vs Rilchic,e{ at. This is one of the strangest trials on record. It appears that the relatives of Hinehman, including his wife, mother and several others, in view of depriving him of this rightful title to his own properly, endeavored to justify a plea of insanity against him. The plea was so redicu-Ions in its nature, that in order to sustain it at all, ihey were obliged lo resort to the most trivial and foolish assertions ever brought before Court. The suit was prosecuted by the Plaintiff against them for unlawfully confining him in a madhouse, and for depriving him of the rights, privileges, ice., to which, as owner of his property, he was justly entitled. David Paul Brown, for the Plaintiff, summed up the pleading in his usual eloquent and argilmenlive way. The basis of the argument adduced by Ihe defendants counsel was that iheir respectability was such as lo warrant ihemfrom...

Live and Manners in Congress- A writer in the National Era, gives the following amusing picture of life and manners in Congress. He says: — "Perhaps no people have a keener sense of the ridiculous than the Americans. It is perilous for a speaker in the House of Representatives to venture upon the pathetic. A member of ample dimensions, bluff, merry looking face, and without a particle of pathos in his manner, while engaged the other day in a very earnest discussion of Ihe slavery question, which he handled wtth spirit and ability, was so unlucky at one time as to attempt: aclimax on the apostacy of the times. He managed very well until he came to put on the top-stone , but theie he fell flat. "When," Baid he, "1 see" so and so, proceeding to enumerate some monstrous evils, "it makes me feel melanclioly." So unexpected was this ending, and so oddly did it contrast with his broad good humored face, that the whole House broke out in a roar of laughter, some of them saying, "Oh, s...

General Manufacturing Bill. In the House on Wednesday last a week, the General Manufacturing Bill, which had been lost a few days before and reconsidered, was again taken up on final reading, and passed by a vote of 52 to 37. We congratulate our readers upon the passage of this bill, which, we confidently believe, will give* such an impetus to manufacturing enterprise as will greatly benefit our slate, so rich in every thing necessary to make us great, prosperous and happy. The derelopement of these resources need encouragement only, and that this bill will give. The passage of the bill is creditable to the Legislature.
