INTELLIGENCERS? DEMOCRAT. LEGISLATIVE PROCEEDINGS. THE ensuing session of the Legislature of this Commonwealth, it is expected, will be one of more intense interest to the people than any that has preceded it. Not only will it be the first session under a new organic law, untried, and in the estimation of many thousands, of doubtful untility, but it wilt be the first scssionfof contested elections—-the first session to which the abused ballot-box will appeal for redress. Parties being nearly ball a need, and each firm as the ev erlas'ing hills in support ofits peculiar tenets, their conflicts—the one battelling under the sacred paople of truth, for the best interest of the people—the other with daik banner of falsehood waving ever it, contending for power and the atdendant-'spoila ot victory,''—will alt.ican interestto the session which will rent der vehicles of con ect information in re gard to the proecdings, of immense importance to the citizens of Pennsylvania .

SIR: At this time, when all the world are engaged in just condemnation of the conduct of WILLIAM M.PRICE , the Defaulter, the following incident in his history may not be uninteresting.

THE GARLAND. -—"With sweetest flowers enrich'd t rom various gardens cull'd with care." Here Is something to stir the heart and moisten the eyes. We have culled it from one of the magazines of the day. Many, many times have we read it over, and wept with the "joy of grief," as it brought to our remembrance the sweet babes, who could just lisp the name of -sister," that passed away long ago. As we read it again and again, we think how many a parent's heart lias throbbed, how many a parent's eyes have grown dim, while pausingion these very lines, and lingering in memory over the dear ones, and n oting each well-known face, who have long since been hid in the grave Ball. Man. WEE WILLIE. Fare thee well, our last and fairest! Dear wee Willie, fair the well; He, who lent thee, hath recalled thee Back with Him and His to dwell.

THE JOURNAL HUNTINGDON, MARCH 13. 1839. FOB THE JOURNAL. M». BENEDICT, We have seen it announced in some of the papers, that Samuel Hepburn, Esq. of Carlisle, has been nominated by Gov. Porter, President Judge of the ninth judicial district, to fill the place of Judge Reed, whose term of office exp ired on the 27th of last February. This is the first operation of the amended Con> stitution on the Judiciary, and if the many and strong objections urged against the adoption of the amendments, could not carry conviction to the public mind of the necessity and wisdom of an independent Judiciary —this nomination should satisf y the honest ot all parties, that the Judiciary is no longer beyond the control of party influence, and that Judges, in whom the public have long placed the fullest confi dence, will be supplanted by bawling politicians. One of the greatest objections, to the amendments was the contemplated change in the judicial tenure; A chai:ge, the consequences of ...

We learn from a marginal memoranda made upon the "Crawford Statesman,"—that the Hon. H. SHIPPEN, President Judge of that district, is dead. AFFLICTING DISPENSATION.—On Sun-J;v afternoon, while enjoying apparently, her usual health—Mrs. Gwin, wife of Patrick Gwin Esq., late Sheriff of this co. —and surrounded by her friend 9 ? suddenly, almost instantly died. Nothing has transp: red of late years in our borough, which cast a more sudden gloom over the feelings ot its inhabitants. Mrs. Gwin had spent a long and useful life here—was universally respected 6f loved-The information of her sudJcn demise, fell like a shock upon the senses of all. But a moment before, she was exulting in more than the common health, and strength of a good old age. Death's unerring shaft ilrcady quivered in the bow-string—it h ad sped; and she whose counsel and whose kindness, were the guide and the comf ort of a large circle, it not. That arrow was a messenger intended to tell th,. thoughtless "be ye'a...

Credit of Pennsylvania. During the Administration of Gov.Ritner, the credit of our State, was without suspicion. Every temporary loan required was immediately taken; and in fact the money for the repair of the breach was borrowed on the individual credit of some ot the then State officers. Let our readers now see the change (or rather let them see, that the change cannot be seen.) Laws have been passed author. ;sing large State loans, at the interest of 5 per cent. The loans have been advertised for veeks, and at last the people arc informed, that no man who has money, is willing to loan this "provisional government," of inobocrats & 'dog keepers,' money for them to squander amid their riotings. Could any thing else be expected? An administration, that is directed in its movements by a Robespeirean "Commit, tee of Safety," who to accomplish a party manoeuvre, would proclaim Government at an end, must calculate largely on the duplicity of moneylenders, if it thinks, t...

Our Rati Rottd again. The "Standard," will, we hope, do thn justice to believe us when we say, we had no intention to misrepresent the views it expressed upon the subject. But when that print tells us we charged it with being opposed to the extension, we aro at a loss to conceive upon what that assertion is founded. We should bo rejoiced to think our cotemporary would lend its aid to further the desired object. We must however, say that we think wc discover, a slight hint, which evinces anything but lavorableness to our road, in his last briet notice of our article. He compares the canal and rail-road to the dog and his shadow—The canal is the substance—the rail-roadis the shadow. Now if our worthy neighbor really thinks the rail-road, a8 unsubstantial as a shadow, we must be permitted to say, we believe he has too much good sense ever to favor such "unrc< I mockery.'9 We wish to be distinctl y understood, as in no wise wishing any abandonment o f the canal; or any po...

Official Capacity. An unprejudiced obseryer, who "vas ig. norant of tho true character of the Loco Focos, would have imagined, that every man ot them, old and young, was not only an old canaller, but a civil engineer while listening to their animadversions upon the conduct of Ritner's administra. tion. In fact we had supposed, that when they took hold of the reigns of government, that every thing would be done so exact. | y right, that nobody could complain. As our object is to show that they are as ignorant of their duties, and practice the same wicked things which were char* ged by them against their predecessors. We shall confine ourselves to this, to show their deliberate villiany, in doin«- what they said, was maliciously wicked in others. A thousand little tilings were picked up—some manufactured—to show the people what an ignorant sot of dummies the officers of Ritner were, To keep the balance adjusted, when they are in tho scale we shall note the official acts of the...
