MISCELLANEOUS Gen. Putnam. Is known to have been decidedly opposed to duelling, on principle. It once happened that he grossly affronted a broth er officer. The dispute arose at a wine table, and the officer demanded instsnt reparation. Putnam, being a little eleva ted, expressed his willingness to accomodate the gentleman with a fight; and it was stipulated- . that the duel should take place on the following morning, and that they should fight without seconds. At the appointed time, the general went on to the ground, armed with sword and pistols On entering the field, Putnam, who had taken a stand at the opposite extremity, and at a distance of about thirty rods, lev tiled his musket, and fired at him. The gentleman now ran towards his antagonist who deliberately proceeded to reload his gun. "What are you about todol" exclaimed he;—"is this the conduct of an American officer; and a man of honor?" "What are you about fo do?" exclaimed the General, attending only to the first...

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 (lie Harrisburg Chronicle lias made such arrangements, as will no: fail to make his paper equal, if not superior to any other in the place, during the ensuing year, in this particular. The sessions of the State Legislature the coming session, promise to be unusually intsresting. The policy ol the new State administration, must excite curiosity in the minds of all such as tskeanv part in the politics ofthe day, inasmuch as the friends of the n«w Governor have found much fault with the administration of Joseph Ritrier, though one ofthe best Governors Pendsylvania ever had; and it remains to be seen from what this wintei j will develops, whether the people have made a wise change.

IN'IELLJGENCER ey DEMOCRAT. LEGISLATIVE PROCEEDINGS. THE ensuing session of the Legislature of this Commonwealth, it is expected, will be one of more intense interesi 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 scssionfof contested elections—the first session to which the abused ballot-box will appeal for redress. Parlies being nearly ballanccd, and each firm as the ev erlas'ing hills in support ofits peculiar tenets, their conflicts—the one battelling un.ier 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 thfc attendant-'spoila ol victory,"—will attach 1111 interest to the session which will render vehicles of con ect information in regard to the proecdings, of immense im portance to the citizens of Pennsylvania .

Lines on passing the grave of niy Slater. BY FLINT. On yonder shore, on yonder shore. Now ardent with the depth of shade, Beneath the white-armed sycamore. There is a little infant laid. Forgive this tear—a mother weeps—•Ti» there the faded flower sleeps. She s'.eeps alone, she sleeps'alone, And summer's forest o'er her wave; And sighing winds at autumn moan, Around the little stranger's grave, Although they murmured at the fate, Of one so lone and desolate. In sounds that seem like Sorrow's own, Their funeral dirges faintly creep; Then deep'ning to an organ torn. In all their solemn cadence sweep. And pour, unheard, along the wild, Their desert anthem o'er a child. •She came, and passed.'' "Can I Iforget", How we whose hearts had hailed her birth Ere three autamnal suns had set, Consigned her to her mother Earth; Joy¦ and their memories pass away; But griefs are deeper ploughed than they. We laid her in a narrow eellj We he«ped the 30ft mould on her breast And parting tea...

SELECT TALE. TMill EJHMGRjyjiTAJYD THE MJ\*MAJ>. A FACT. ABOUT twelve years ago & person of the name of M'Dougal, a native of Argy ieshire, who had emigrated to Upper Canada, a few yearn before, wrote to his friends in Scotland, giving an account of his fortunes in the new world, and among othcr' lhings failed not to make honorable and grateful, mention " of the following truly romantic incident. ' tn a section of Arrjleshiie the story was told in every parlor, spencc, and booth, by the sheperd on the hill, and the fisherman on the lake; and a military gentleman who happened to be on the spot shortl y after the news arrived, was so much struck with, the circumstance the he collected the particulars from head-quarters, aud is ready to vouch' for their accuracy. M'Dougal, on reaching Upper Canada, from anxiety to make the most of his scanty capital, or some other motive, purchased a location where the price of land was merely nom i nal, in a country thinly peopl...

MISCELLANEOUS. JPttrtj- Spirit. The following extract from Washington's Farewell Address, is peculiarly adapted to the present day, when party spirit seems to govern all motives in the choice of the officers ol the people. "Let ine warn you, in the most solemn manner, against the baneful effects in the spirit of party generally. "The spirit, unfortunately, is inscperable from our nature, having its root in the strongest passions of the human mind-It exists under different shapes, in all governments more or less stilled, controlled or repressed, but in those of the popular form it is seen in its greatest darkness; anil is truly their worst enemy. "The alternate dominion of one faction over another, shapened by the open spirit of revenge, natural to parly dissension, which in different ages and countries, has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and per. muhent despotism. The disorders and miseries w...
