PRO SPECT US. OF THE HARRISBURG CHRONICLE. There being nothing which so much enhances the value of a public journal as early and faithful news, the editor and proprietor of the Harrisburg Chronicle has made such arrangements, as will not fail to make his paper equal, if not superior to any other in the place, during the ensuing year, in this particular. The sessions ot the State Legislature the coming session, promise to be unusually interesting. The policy ot the new-State administration, must excite curiosity in the minds of all such as take any part in the politics of the day, inasmuch as the friends of the new Governor have found much fault with the administration of Joseph Ritner, though one of the best Governors Pendsylvaniii ever had; and it remains to be seen from what this winter will developc, whether the people have made a wise change. Resides the . interest [which the policy of the new administration will give rise to, the duties of this winter's Legislature will...

IN 7 E L UGENCER .$• DEMO CRA T. LEGISLATIVE PROCEEDINGS. THE ensuing session of the Legislature of this Commonwealth, it is expected, v.ill 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 will be the first session!of contested elections—the first session to which the abused ballot-box will appeal for redress. Parties being nearly ballanced, and each firm as the cv erlas'ing hills in support ofits peculiar tenets, their conflicts—the one battelling under the sacred paople of truth, for the best interest of j the people—the other with dark banner of falsehood waving over it, contending for power and the atdendant-'spoilaol victory,"—will attacan interest to the session which will rent der vehicles of collect information in regard to the proecdings, of immense im portance to the citizens of Pennsylvania .

The gorgeous skies of Palestine In evening splendor grow, And twilight's lingering rajs recline On Carmel's verdant brow; And Jordon's plain and Elah . s vale In gathering darkness lie, And famish'd wild beasts fiercely hail-Night's gloomy canopy.

ORIGIN OF COAL. Although there arc arguments of Some force against the vegetable origin of coal, those arguments vanish when the carboniferous strata is examined. Having entered among layers of rock, where that important article is only found in any considerable quantity, the mind is suddenly arrested with the remains of vegetable production as beds of coal aie approached. At least three hundred species of fossel have been discovered in coal regions, ferns, equicet acea, araenriun, pines, contifera, cacti, and lofty palms, crowded to gether on the very border of the coal. The cortical portions of the plants is often carbonized in some part of (he wood has been changed and in other instances a gradual passage from wood to coal is manifest. All these plants, wherever they are found among the rocks, are the growth of waim latitudes; so that a great and sudden change must have taken place in all northern climates, since their foliage covered the country where they are. now found...

We shall not at temp lo rcard who is the writer, for there are so many Turns, Dicks, and Harrys, who make that the sewer through which they pour forth their lilth and falsehood, that it would be useless. We said drunkards, gam'ilers, rowdies and thicits, were ihe choice spirits, who sought and obtain:d preferment from the present administration, and it is sober truth (perhaps lhat is the reason why it is not understood), and this is made the sub ject of a moral homily, from that perfect canker of duplicity and blackguardism, lie is afraid we sha.l corrupt ihu families and children, because we say drunkard': and thieves "Jloclt together!"1 would not he make a beautiful guardian for children, who needs a guardian himself? we can...

AMERICAN SAILORS IN THE ENGLISH NAVY. It is a fact, well known (o many of our officers, that a large portion of the Seamen in the English Navy, are now composed of Americans; and this disposition to sail under the British llag is more infectious among our tars at present than ever. As a recent evidence of this, more than forty of the crew, who were discharged from the frigate United States in this port, have since this, reshipped in Liverpool for the British service. We cannot account for this, except that the Admirality have offered the^greatcst encouragement to sailors entering their service. During the wars of ii.-' continent, when it became necessary to keep the whole navy of Great 151 itian at sea, no means was left unspared, to entrap sailors in (he service, and every temptation was thrown in their way, to keep them quiet in their state of depend ence. But the evil consequences arising from this system of coercion, have caused a great change in the mode of treatment; s...

We had previously received a polite invitation to dine with the consul and his lady, 'on the anniversary of the glorious Fourth.' While we were enjoying a pleasant quiet repast Within, the janissaries and servants were making all the noise they could without, by firing muskets from the tops ot the houses, and cracking squibs &c.
