VERMONT PflCENIX. Fiidar Morning, January 4, 1830. The Pennsylvania Tioublcs. It appears thai the difficulllM attending the organization' of the Pennsylvania Legislature, arc at length brought to a close by a most exlrndrdinary movement on the part of the Senate. Last week we recorded the vote of that body, by Which they solemnly declared, by a large ma jority, that the loco foco body pretending to be the House of Representatives, had no foun dation for their chiim. Since then, the same Senate, influenced by a mob, threatening rev olution, has, by a majority of one, decided to acknowledge the same House. Loco foco vi olence has therefore triumphed, and wo be hold the humiliating spectacle, of a legislative body in this republic, overawed and controlled by a mob of reckless and unprincipled men, among whom were theU. S. Marshall for that district, and a clerk in the Philadelphia post office, retainers of the notional administration. As much has been written on this subject, nnd as th...

The damage to bridges and mills has, we learn, been very great. Willard's toll bridge acrots West River in Dummerston, was swept away, and also several other costly public bridges on the same stream, m 'towns hend and other places. It was at one time Bupposedjlhat the new and valuable dam across. West River, in this town, constructed llie past season by the Typographic Co. and others, was also carried away, but we are happy to state that such is not the case. The south bridge across the Connecticut at Charlcstown N. IL, thai at Montague, Mass. and part of that at Hartford, Con. we learn are also gone. The bridge across Broad Brook in Guilford and a dam at tha same place, were also swept off, and we hear that very many bridges, across the tributaries of the Connecticut, to the north and south of us,...

Accounts, of the Freshet. From the Greenfield Gazette, The bridgo nt Montague, which had just been completed and put In excellent order, was shortened mote than a hundred feet, by the Joss ol tho western pier, and tho two spans supported by it. That portion from the shore; to tho pier had been standing some years but was sound and strong; tho other portion' was entirely new. Tho bridgo would probably havo sustained tho more pressure of tho water, bad not tho pier been struck by .fragments of tho dam at Turner's Falls, In. which a largo gap vus mado by a part ol a bridge from above, supposed to bo tho lower one ht Chorlestown. The lumber thus set free clogged the passage under tho bridge, produced nn extraordinary riso of water' on trie upper side nnd filially bora a vnyl (ho pier nnd incumbent structure.
