For the Ltincasler Intelligencer. Geology* of Pennsylvania. A writer in a late number of the Intelligencer, in an interesting article on the Geology of tho State, has given his reasons for doubting that we have 13 formations of stratified rocks. Could his reasoning be established, it would be of the greatest importance, but without pretending to go into the necessary details, even were they in my possession, I" cannot help thinking his announcement premature, especially as the recognized formations have been verified by numerous observers over a great extent of country. Nevertheless, as "Refoiui" remarkt, "Geology, as a science, is comparativel y young and progressive, " so that we need not be surprised at the announcement of any new fact. Several objections to the views of the writer have struck me in reading them. Formation No. 1, differs so much from No. 5, with which it is attempted to be associated, that it can be distinguished at a glance. From its proximity to the alter...

' Agriculture, Whether considered in reference to health, pleasure, moral influence, security, independence or respectability, will not suffer in comparison with any other employment in which mankind are engaged; and, indeed, in most of these respects, it claims a decided pre-eminence over every other pursuit. Nothing is so well fitted to strengthen and invigorate the frame and constitution as exercise in the open air, or better calculated to avoid the inception or prevent and restrain the ravages of disease, than the hardiness induced by agricultural labors. The farmer is assailed by fewer temptations to vicious indulgence than the laborer in other occupations, and the nature and variety of his engagements, while they are productive of mental quietude and enjoyment, directly tend to teach him to '• look through nature up to nature's God." Furnishing sustenance and the materials on which their industry is exerted to the manufacturing and commercial classes, he seems to origina...

Democratic State Convention. The proceedings of the Democratic State Convention, as far as received, will be found in our paper of to-day. " We have no room for lengthy comment, and can only point to the gratifying-fact that JAMES BUCHANAN received a large majority over all his distinguished competitors combined,! and is now the declared choice of the Democracy of the great Keystone State, through whose representatives he i.i to be presented to the National Convention, to be, held in May next, at Baltimore. To obtain the ratification of this preference bjuiiat body, it now becomes every true-hearted son of Pennsylvania to bury all past differences, and by a union of hearts and hands work out the long deferred claims of Pennsylyania tQ. their full consummation. | .'* The candidate for Canal Commissioner. ISRAKL PAINTER, Esq., of Westmoreland, is in every way worthy of this highj compliment. It is a tribute, not less to a sound and able Democrat, than to a noble and patriotic co...

Mi-. Buchanan in Missouri. The able organ of the Democracy of Missouri, the Jefferson Enquu-er, uses the following language in reference to Mr. Bucuaxax . - Who may be the successful candidate we arc unable to say. The.North seems to claim the man, and as it has once given away ita favorite, and fell into the support of a Southern man, we see no good reason why the South and West should 'not show the same liberality. There are many named in connection with the Presidency in the North, who would receive the cordial support of the Democracy ot the West, should they receive the nomination of the Convention. Among the most prominent of these arc James Buchanan, Martin Van Buren and George M. Dallas. The claims of -the old Keystone seem to be strong, and deserving ihe serious deliberation of the Convention. Mr. -Juchaaan, her favorite son and statesman, has long been identified with the great Democratic party of the Union, and has, by his consistent and straighttorward course, made...

An- Ex-rnA Hcs . iiasu.—During the Canada Patriot war, says the Goshen (N Y.) Whig, a man from this State, a husband and a father of three children, was taken prisoner by the British, anil condemned to execution. The wife, supposing her husband had been executed, removed to New Jersey, where she subsequently married again, and has for some years been residing in this country near the village of Port Jen-is, with her second husband, by whom she has three children. A short time since, she was surprised b y the sudden appearance of her former husband. His sentence of death had been commuted to banishment , and after » nine years absence, he had returned and eagerly sought, in the bosom of his family, that domestic peace and li-.ippiness, whose bright visions had filled his mind during the tedious years oCiiis exile. But he found his hearth and home passed injo other hands. He proposed to his wife to take her and the children, and promised to support them. The wife had then to make he...

Gen. Washington and Mr. Adams. In 1794 John Quincy Adams being then 2G years old, was appointed by Washington, Minister of the United States, at the Hague; and. in the ensuing year, upon an intimation that he .was disposed to renounce his station and return to his country and profession, Gen. Washington thus wrote to old John Adams: Philadelphia, 20th Aug., 1794. Mb. John Adams.—" Your son must not think of retiring from the walk lie is now in. His prospects, if he continues, are fair; and I shall be much mistakenif, in as short a time as can be well expected, he is not found at the head of the diplomatic corps, be the government administered by whomsoever the people may choose." Gen. Washington confirmed this- favorable and, as subsequent events have abundantly proved, the just estimate of the talents and character of the young diplomatist, by appointing him, in 1700, Ministcr.of the United States to the Court of Prussia.

' Sensible Observations. Some worthy in Michigan asks Horace Gheelet to send him a copy of the Tribune, daily, and that he will pay at the end of the year, and then adds,'; by so doing you will promote the Federal cause in this section of the country." In a characteristic reply, Horace gives the foltowing reasons for not complying with the request: " 1st. I can't remember that I ever had the honor of knowing you ; 2dly, The fact that you did not pay the postage on your letter, is not calculated to impress me favorably as regards your pecuniary reliability ; and 3dly, 1 published newspapers seven years on credit; with lots of subscribers , and came near starving to death thereby. For the last seven years I have gone on the opposite tack, sending my paper very rarely to any one who had not paid for it in advance; and I think it will gladden your philanthropic heart to know that the change has worked admirably for my constitution. 1 have since had not only a goodly array of subsc...
