Character. The people of the United States, being the descendants of the various European nations, have not yet so assimilated, as to form a national character. They are, however, generally industrious, intelligent, and enterprising. In the northern states they are, for the most part, well informed and regular in their habits; in the southern states they are more addicted to gaming and dissipating pleasures.
