A Scene in Congress. 1 he published report of the Congressional proceedings ol Friday contains the following. This is a new-fangled way of taking the eyes and nose, of which a well disposed public will scarcely approve. Gen. Hahralsost is a Democrat, Jones a Whig: " ' ¦ House of Representatives.—The HotiBe met_ at noon, and after prayer by the'Rev. Mr. Gurley,! proceeded to business. Mr Sawyer made an ineffectual attempt to reconsider a vote taken yesterday, but gave way to a motion of «r. Crowell, that the House resolve itself into Commmittee of the Whole. This was adopted, and \1r. Brotjhead, of Pennsylvania, called to the chair. The first question that was brought before the committee proved that no quorum was present. The committee therefore rose, and reported this fact to the House. A motion was then made to adjourn, upon which a division of the House was called. As the members were passing through the tellers, a lamentable and unfortunate' personal difficulty occurred be...

The Taylor State Committee. We published the names of the gentlemen composing this committee a few days ago, as a matter of record, and to "preserve the record" of Taylorism in. Pennsylvania, take great pleasure in laying before the public the following manly and sensible letters of Messrs. Muhlenberg andSmith, of Berks county. Mr. M. is a son of the late lamented H. A. Muhlenberg, and of course a consistent republican, and Mr. G. Smith is one of the most staunch and vigorous Democrats of gallant " Old Berks." It is well remarked in these letters to the chairman of the State Committee, that so long as Taylorism had • the semblance of a Democratic movement, they felt disposed to- favor it, but like good Democrats, when they found it mixed up with chicken-hearted no-partyism, Federalism, and worse than all fanaticism, in the shape of Nativism, they could have nothing more to do with it. All good republicans will join with us in thanking Messrs. M. and S. for this exposition of t...

State Medical Convention. It is not as generally known , we believe, as it deserves to be, that a State Convention of delegates belonging to the Medical Profession is to be held in this city, commencing its session on the 11th of April next. As the highest temporal interests of mankind are interwoven with the science, which will claim the'deliberation* of this body, we cannot doubt that it will attract a high degree oi public interest, not only ' ^ , but otct the" entire State. That it will be db~aguMhed, both as to numbers, and character, we hare a suk guarantee in the appointment of the following eminent gentlemen as delegates: University of Pennsylvania.—Professors 8. jackson and William Gibaon. !

A Feaufdi. Leap and Narrow Escape.—One of the most extraordinary instances of pre.-ervation under circumstances of imminent peril, occurred a few days since in ihis vicinity. On Friday morning last, at the sill: factory of the Northampton Association, a building four stories in height, Geo. Washington Sullivan, a young man, connected with the Association, went put on the roof for the purpose of picking up a mineral which he had accidentally dropped there while standing in the belfry. To secure himself from falling, he toojc oft" his shoes. Notwithstanding this precaution, , after descending the roof a few steps, finding himWf slipping, he took off one of his stockings, but whilst attempting to take off the other, his motion became so much accelerated, that a fearful fall was unavoidable. He then, with remarkable presence of mind, rolled himself over upon the roof whilst he was sliding, in order: to prevent falling upon the platform, and when he reached the eaves, having first draw...

The Marietta Meeting. We have on our table two versions of the Democratic meeting held at Marietta, both differing " from the account given in another of the public journals of this city. It would afford us pleasure to oblige our intelligent correspondents by their publication, but we must be. allowed to say, that the accounts are of unusual length, and would interfere with the proceedings of the great State Convention ^ which our readers are doubtless all desirous to . have entire. We are anxious, also, to deprive the originators of said meeting of the slightest pretext for a continuance of the controversy that has for some months past agitated the Democracy of this county. The State Convention, by an overwhelming majority, has declared James Buchana^ to be its first choice for the Presidency—and, unless this' decision be over-ruled by the National Convention, (we feel confident of its ratification,) it is the duty of every Democrat in the State, no matter what his previous c...

Union and Harmony. , - One of the most agreeable features of the late Democratic State Convention, was the fact that after the majority had been ascertained' to be in favor of Mr. Buchanan, all united upon the choice of that majority. The Harrisburg Democratic Union says: The address adopted by the Convention, is a noble document, and presents Mr. Buchanan to the Democracy of the nation, in the most eloquent and forcible manner. The resolutions are strong and decided, and breathe a spirit which will find a response in every Democratic bosom in this broad land. As a whole, the proceedings of this Convention were of the most satisfactory character; and after the nomination had been made, patriotic and eloquent speeches were delivered by those in the minority, as well as those in the majority, pledging the State for Mr. Buchanan, in case he should be. the nominee of the Baltimore Convention, by twenty-thousand majority. After the adoption of the address and resolutions, tho Conve...

Lewis ' Criminal taw in France. The Hon. Richard Rush, our distinguished minister to France, in a letter of the 24th of January last, written at Paris, pays the following compliment to " Lewis' Criminal Law of the United States-." " I have no doubt but that I shall find it useful to me in the mission I have on hand.here. I have already looked through it sufficiently to see abundant proofs of the ability and research with which it has been prepared. To the case of Metzgar, I have not failed to turn with interest, and read the whole proceedings with care." The case of Metzgaf is one arising under the convention of extradition. The French government demanded his surrender as a fugitive from justice; but difficulties have been thrown in the way of the Federal Government, by the divisions of the State authorities of New York, in conflict with the divisions of the national authorities, which have thus far prevented a surrender.

Gen. Taylor's'Politics. The Louisville Democrat says: " A gentleman who came up the river yesterday, and who is a good Whig, had a'conversation with Gen. Taylor, at his own home. Taylor said it made, no difference whether ' a Democrat or; a Whig was elected President—that a National Bank was out of the question, and there was little difference on the Tariff. He said emphatically that he would make no pledges to carry out Whig measures."
