Things at Harrisburg. Inc Legislature Dually adjourned on Wednesday of last week, May 15th, making tlie session 135 days or within a wedk of being twice the length of the Whig Legislature of 184". Of course the Apportionment, the Appropriation and other important Bills which, were djd'ied along tOHhe very last, were finally passed!-and signed bys the Governor. The jirst mentioned Bill, however, was after all passed hi such an objectionable shape that the Governor fejt constrained to give his reasons for signing it, which will be found in another col-: umn. It is much fairer in many respects than ; the one vetoed some time ago, and being tlie least 1 objectionable offany they could get, most of the j Whig members finally voted for it, and the Gov-, emor signed it rather than gratify the " rule and 1 ruin" spirits w1k> seemed bent on breaking up and I leaving (anarchy iand confusion to take place in the i government of the State, unless permitted to have every thing in th...
