On examination, it will be found that two : hundred and twenty-four out of the wlnTenumber of Banks chartered from 1830 to 1837, were chartered by Jackson and Van Buren Legislatures, while their opponents, in the saare time, only chartered one hundredj and twenty-four, with a capital of little more than sixty-two millions, and these designed for local convenience, where the veto of the U, S. Bank bad deprived the pcopUhof those commercial facilities which they had previously enjoyed. We make these remarks that our readers may see what confidence to place in the al most unceasing cry of the Administration against the banking institution. G3r We see it stated that John Howabd Payne, Esq., is now among the Western Indians, carrying on his investigations as to their history, general habits, &c. lie, travels under a special passport from the Secretary of War, and with letters of re commendation to all the Indian Agencies, from theIndiaa Department.

" What qVxocK is it?'"- When I was a young lad,, my father one day called me to him that fie might teach me to know what o'clock it was. He told me the use of thp minute finger and the hour hand, and described to me the figures on the dial-plate, nntil I was pretty perfect in my pare No sooner was I quite master of this ad ditional knowledge, than I set offscampcr- mg to join my companions in a game- of marbles ; but my fattier called me back again. " Stop William," said he, "I have something more to tell you." Back again I went, wondering what else I had got to learn, for I thought I knew all about lhc clock, quite as well as my father did. . j " William, said he, l nave taught you to know the time of day, I must teach you how to find out the time of your life.
