INTELLIGENCER 4* DEMOCRAT. LEGISLATIVE PROCEEDINGS. THE ensuing session of the Legislature of this Commonwealth, it is expected, will beone 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 will be the first session!'of contested elections—the first session to which the abused ballot-bo:: will appeal for redress. Parties being nearly ballanced, and each firm as the ev erlas'ing hills in support ofits peculiar tenets, their conflicts—the one battelling under the sacred paoplc of truth, for the best interest of the people—the other with dark banner of falsehood waving over it, contending for power and the atdendant **spoila ol victory,"—will attacan interest to the session which will rent dcr vehicles of concct information in regard to the proecdings, of immense importance to the citizens of Pennsylva nia . Such vehicle w...

RAVEN HOLLOW. For the Huntingdon Journal. Long, long my muse has absent been, Perhaps a sporting with the Lasses, By fancy's eye, she still was seen Upon the top of mount Parnassus. But lately she has come again, And smiling bid me, her to follow, With harp in hand, she now is seen, Perch'd on a rock, in Raven hollow. She bade me take a seat, and dip In liquid black, my pointed feather, And carefully, these lines to write, For her, as she put them together. A mossy hillock is my seat, A large flat rack, it is my table; Beneath a lofty jutting cragg, Crown'dby a spreading sugar maple, A chrystal brook just at my feet, In gentle murmurs onward moving, To quench the thirst of bird and beast, That through the woods are ever roving, On right and left, and close at hand, Arc piles, on piles, (truly majestic ) Of massive rocks, on rocks, on rocks, And heaps, on heaps, the most romantic, And numerous caverns gaping wide, Amongst the craggy cliffs are yawning, Whilst Hocks of birds...

THE MA1DSCHENSTJE1N. Select Eiile. A TRADITION OF THE SAXON SWISS, (CONCLUDED.) CHAPTER III. Midnight is close at hand, and Franz Brockhaus sits alone in a small arched chamber that is hewn out of the solid rock. To reach that giddy height, he has threaded the mazes of the Khuhstall forest, and clambered up a rude and steep ladder, which, reared from the extremity of a fissure: conducts Father Ambrose to and fro, alternately abroad and back to his dwelling, on tlie bald grey hill alluded to in a previous clnpter. A small lamp, suspended by an iron chain from the ceiling, renders obscurely visible each object within the compass of that narrow vault. There is a rough deal table, an altar cut in the stone, a crucifix, a skull, an hour glass, a couch (it such it may be termed) composed of untrimmed branches of oak, a rosary, and a pitcher of water. A book of devotions lies upon the altar, fastened with silver clasps, while a large Hebrew Bible, in vellum binding, rests on the ...

Ocath'Bed Confession of a Jflurderer. About forty years ago a great sensatior was created in Liverpool by the murdei ¦if a gentleman of high respectability The body was found by a watchman in ai upright position, supported by railing* which fenced a shipwright's yard, on lam! :iow forming part of the east quay of the Prince's Dock. On examination it was discovered that the deceased had met with his death by a fracture of the skull, executed by a blunt instrument. A reward was then offered by the then mayor, and, in consequence, information was given to the police that the deceased gentleman was in the habit of visiting a female in the neighborhood of the place where the body was found, and on the apprehension of that female a watch was tas ken from her person, which was proved to the property of the deceased, and so satisfactory was the fact, with some corroborant circumstances, that the prisoner was committed for trial. A stable keeper or groom, who was in the habit of goin...

Scntli of Dr. li*!. - This learned and emminent divine, President of the Wesleyan (Methodist) University at Middletown Connecticut, died at that place on the 23d February last, and his funeral took place on the 26. The following notice of his funeral is from a correspondent of the New York Commercial Advertiser. Steamboat New Haven, Feb. 9.7. The last tribute has been paid to departed worth by a bereaved and sorrowing community. All that is mortal of our revered and beloved friend, was yesterday deposited in the house appointed for all 'he living. As you may well suppose, a -{loom overspreads the city of Middletown; the conviction having taken a deep hold upon the minds of an immense multitude that "a great man has fallen in Israel," and that not onl y their flourishing institution is deprived of itn head, but that they have lost a common father, counsellor and friend. I need scarcely say to you that he died us ^ the christian " died—"full of faith and of the Hol y Ghost." "...

JTIore ISrturni. We learn by the Williumsport Republican that the present Canal Board have created a new office at that place. A Collector's office at ft illiamsport—A Collector's office on the Summit!! The tolls collected at both will not pay the gallary of one. This is economy, this is reform. What a consistent party. For three years they denounced Joseph Ititncrfor increasing officers! They have commenced their administration by making more! Did we not tell the honest of all pasties that Porter would do all, and more of it than Ititner did? Ritner was a fanner, and his successor is a politician, who is using his power and patronage now to elevate himself again. Every unprincipled knave in the party must have an office. Make a new office and give some hungry office grabber a snatch at the peo ple's money. Pay oft* your dog-keepers! there is a day of reckoning at hand You profess a great regard for the pec. pie's money! Yet when you have the power, you scatter with a frugal...

liiood News. The faithful and loving subjects of the present Governor, will be pleased to learn that he has arrived safely again among his former friends. And such of them as have been somewhat disappointed in their expectations, as to the honesty or economy of the course pursued by his administration, will be able to hear him excuse it all away. The most perfect kindness, and cunning, will be used to gull diem into the belief, that every thing is for the best. We can tell him however in advance , that his cunning will "not always succeed ,-"a burnt child, dreads the fire;" and "soft sawder" will not answer as well now, as it did before he broke hig thousands of promises to individual.;. If he possessed the wand of a wizzard, it would require more than all its virtues to satisfy thc'peoplu, that he has not dictated every appointment, eithei of the canal Commissioners, or the SupervL tsers; even the Lock-kcepeis, have had their noses chalked by his hand—without it, a poor fel...

A FOUL DEED. The Newark Advertiser says:—"A sacriligious outrage wai committed under the cover of darkness during some night of this week in the Alsey St. burying ground, by some human Hyena upon the grave of the late Dr. Jameson, the tomb stone erected to his memory by J. \V. Parkins, Esq. having been basely torn up and mutilated, and the grave itself stripped of its covering. The individual who could thus atrociously violate the sanctity of the grave, must be utterly destitute of every feeling of humanity, capable of any wickednes whatever, and should be excluded from all human intercourse, and bear the brand of infamy, imprinted on his forehead by the finger of public scorn, as a warning to all evil doers, and a mark of caution to those who might otherwise be deceived by him." DUBLIN, Feb. 20.—Death of the "ffandering Piper."—This singular individual died on Sunday night in Mercer's Hospital, in this city, where he had been for three weeks previously. It is stated in an a...

The Lancaster Murder. Some time since, we selected an account of this inhuman butchery, for pub. lication, but some good natured friend borrowed the copy; and finally lostjt. We will state the facts, in the case, from reccollection, and as briefly as possible. On the 27th Feb. the body of a man was found near the Lancaster race course; which J had been there apparently some weeks, having fifteen stabs and cuts, about the head, neck and hands, (as recciv. ed in defcndinghimself.) It proved to be the body of a German pedlar, and it was supposed that he had been murdered for his money, (about 1000 dollars) All surmises as to the auilty perpetraor , seemed to be made in the dark. Latterly, however, the inscrutable hand of Providence, seems to have pointed him out. And there are strong circumstances which seemed to say ofthe suspected ,"thou art the man ." He has been traced to several houses in Philadel phia, at each of which he stayed but a short time; finally taking passage fo...

Plunder Fund. 1 he Canal Commissioners of the present Administration, it seems have asked for nearly TWO MILLIONS of an appropriation for repairs, for this year! More than twice as much as it erst Ritner's administration during THREE YEARS. This . is the Reform! This is the economy of the new administration, which complained so loudly of the prodigality of their predecessors. Last year a Loco Foco legislature allowed only 6230,000 for repairs. This year their canal board demand SIX TIMES AS MUCH! and this they call reform Three years ago they said Ritner had increased officers, and deserved the curses of every honest man. Now they have more than doubled the number latterly under Ritner, and they call this Reform] This is the boasted Reform! Honest farmers how do you like it? But the plunder fund! we had almost forgotten that part of our story. They want money Co;'electioneering purposes! They must and >\iil have it! They always had! & cannot now do withoutit; ...
