All fools day.

--Monday is the 1st of April, with those who shall be spared to see it. Any quantity of pranks are allowable on all fools day — a designation which, by common consent, appertains to the occasion named. The Legislature had resolved to terminate their present existence on Monday, but, yesterday an enterprising member of the Senate, with "an eye wholly to the public interest," (whose brightness, we hope, may never be quenched by an untimely take off,) resolved that the members should have legal authority to exist till the 4th of April, (Thursday,) and as conducive to that end, introduced a joint resolution, which passed the upper House, and was sent to the lower.
