C?*A perusal of the proceedings of the legislature, almost forcibly leads the ruial reader to believe, that the only legislation necessary is that which is demanded by the people and corporate bodies of Philadelphia. Days and weeks are wasled in debating the feasibility of passenper railway routes through Ihe streets of .he Quaker city—and interests jarring with interests in these enterprises lhave absorbed most of the time of this* i-es-^¦o^ of the legislature, to the neglect of <U ter important business, in which the whole Slate )s interested. It i* lime that this moncpoly »f legislation was ended—and il is proper that the interference should come from the .co mtry. If the great Slate of Pennsylvania :is to be rtFglecied for ihe metropolis, the people should be apprised of the fact, and warned to provide the remedies lo preserve their interests frem any serious damage. Why is it ihat representatives from the rural districts are so slow in asserting their equality on the f...

Is there a Democratic Part}'? This is a significant question, floating from the north to the south, seemingly in vain for an answer. If we were allowed to judge from . the results of two yeais, we would answer, that the Democratic party is defunct. If the. condition of politics and partisans as they now exist be taken as criterions, the answer" suggests itself, that the Democratic party is composed of noihing more than a discordant mass of ambitious demagogues, and the few honest men who remain lo acknowledge its. present organization are fast becoming disgusted with themselves and their associations. In Pennsylvania defeat has.wiiheied its brightest laurels, shorn it of its strength, because its principles were songht to be trampled in the dust by men who were sworn to their defence.
