Remember that Dickens was English and in British English, "Ass" is a 
kind of Donkey, where as "arse" is you "back-side", posteria, butt or 
whatever you want to call it. An Ass is a stubborn animal, which is what 
he was alluding to. (i.e. what Dickens said doesn't mean the same as the 
modern US English reading of that statement...)
