*• The Dome of Taste. ... -. How easy it is to be rjeat—tq.be , clean !—How easy it is to invest our houses with the truest elegance ! Elegance resides not with the upholsterer or the draper; it is not in the mosaics, the carpetings, the rosewood, the mahogany, the candelabra, or the marble ornaments ; it exists in the spirit presiding over the chambers-of the dwelling. Contentment must always be most graceful; it sheds serenity over the scene of its abode; it transforms a waste.into a garden; The home lighted by these intimations ofa nobler and brighter life may 'be wanting in" much which the discontented may desire; but to its in habitants it will be a palace, far outvieiog the oriental'in brilliancy and glory.

Model.Bank Law The LocofocQSot the last Legislature, in a spirit of demagogism choracteristicof them, endeavored to manifest their care^ protection, and rpgard for the people, by the passage of what tiiey superbly called a model bank law. The sage projector of the bill was the Locofoco Chairman of the Committee on Banks, in the House of Representatives, Mr. -Laird, of Westmoreland county, and the bill was reported by that Committee—a majority of tvhom were Locofocos."" After having been passed by what, a re called the more immediate representatives of the people, in the^House, who {pertinaciously ad/ hered to it, the bill was acceded to by the Senate, and not being grossly unconstitutional, was signed by the Governor, and thus becumea law.

Loeofoeo^pRVen(ion. This body met as usual on Monday evening of August Court, for the nomination ofa county ticket. The rush to the Court House when the bell rung was not so great as in times past, as Turner's Circus was performing on the Green nearby which drew off a portion of the crowd—the specimens of "ground and lofty tumbling, riding two horses at a time, and other performances of the ring being if possible more enticing than those of the Locofoco party. At least it served to divide the interestso that the bell bad to be rung several times to call the folks together. Gen. Blanding was called to preside, assisted by a usual number of Vice Presidents and Secreta ries. Whatever may have been the caucusings and wire-workings for the Congressional and Senatorial strifes in prospect, the nominations for Representative were narrowed down by the declinations of Messrs. W. C. Ward, Wm.J. i'urrell and others named, to Isaac Reckhow of Great Bend, John Smiley of Gibson and one or...

In order to be convinced of tne truth of this remark, we need but look at the reckless extravagance of the last Legislature—in iota! disregaid of itm bit dens already imposed on' the people—voting us members extra pay over and above what tbe law authorized them I Raising the salaries of a(j the heads of Departments, except the Governor!
