The General Assembly.

--The two houses of the General Assembly, pursuant to adjournment, meet again on next Monday. The special good to be attained thereby, beyond the expenditure on the part of the State of several thousands per diem for pay, &c., of members, clerks and hangers on, remains to be seen. It is certainly to be hoped that whatever business may be before the General Assembly will speedily be accomplished, and not be befogged by windy declamation and interminable amendments. At the session recently ended, a majority of the members suffered from a diarrhœa of small talk, and the business of legitimate legislation was much impeded thereby. This is no time for trifling. If there is anything to be done, let it be done, any speedily.
