INTELLIGENCERS- DEMOCRAT. LECISLATIVE PROCEEDINGS. THE ensuing session of the Legislature of this Commonwealth, it is expected, will 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 scssionf of contested elections—the first session to which the abused ballot-box will appeal for redress. Parties being nearly bailanced, and each firm as Ihe ev erlas'ing hills in support of its peculiar tenets, their conflicts—the one battelling trotter the sacred paople of truth, for the >itet interest of the people—the other v.h dark banner of falsehood waving verit, contending for power and the a(- dendant-'spoilaot victory ,"—will attacan interest to the session which will rent tier vehicles of con ect information in regard to the proecdings, of immense importance to the citizens of Pennsylvania .

Governor's Jtlessage. He. this week give our readers the message of Governor Porter, relative to the finances of the State. It is a most extraordinary document; and one which is calculated to shed but little credit upon its ostensible author, being characterized by nothing but deception, humbug, and hypocritical cant. He commences by telling what an "everlasting stigma" would rest on Pennsylvania, if her'-creditor were allowed to knock for a tingle hour at the door of an empty treasury." Yet, well he knows, that a part of the state debt has been du;. since January, 1, and that his "provisional" members, and himself have allowed a continual knocking for a month. The Senate passed a bill on the Us January, to meet the demand, but the Loco Foco House prelered to bring on Pennsylvania the "everlaUing stigma," of having a creditor knocking for a month at the door of an "emp'y treasury." He then proceeds to lay before the Legislature the entire amount of Public Debt—which he decla...

Canal Board. The new Board, are, Jas. Clark, E. B. Hubley, and W. F. Packer. Nothing is more in keeping with rotating Democrats, than the above Board. Jimmy Clark, has held office for the last quarter of a century, and Mr. Hubley is called from Congress, being the representative from Schuylkill county, and of course, his constituents must go unrepie. sentcd, or else go to the expense of a new election. He has rotated into another office. Packer is a Printer. /»• like that. But such of our readers who can recollect the bowlings of the Loco Foe* presses, at Ritner's appointing printers, will perhaps expect to see the same consistent gentleman complain now. Congress has appointed a committee to investigate the defalcations in public offices. The committee have already gone on to New York to commence their labors in ferrctting out the Swartwout and Price corruptions. The. people should recollect that General Jackson gave a certificate of good character to these plunderers, and t...

To my ConstiluentB. From the Gettysburg Star. Fellow Citizens:—I must trouoie you to read one more number upon the same melancholy- subject, with my two last. I am driven " to this lengthened exposition because my political enemies, have given me much more importance in the late transactions than my own merit entitles ins to. And because those political friends, whose tender hearts or tender nerves induced them to make a magnanimous peace with a rebellious banditti by surrendering to them the citidal of the Constitution, in their public apologies for deserting their associates and submitting to the enemy, intimate that they were hastily and without due reflection led into (he position, wh'.<.h they deserted in the desire to shrink from hour of need. 1 none of the responsibility of the course pursued by the party with which I acted.-Nay I am nat willing to part with any of tht glory of being among the foremost and most unyeilding of those, who determined never to gra...

Conscientious John. That venerable trembler, for virtues cause, John Montelius; whose tender conscience made him desert his friends, and what he declared to be the cause of the constitution, has been made to father a speech, which is trumpeted forth as the very essence of truth, and honesty by the Loco Foco presses. It seems he did not when he first went to //arrisburg cal. culate that the filthy lucre of mammon, would be likely to work such magic changes in his belief, for below we publish a copy ofa letter, written when the "blood hounds'' were "ready to butcher." We ask any man of common sense, to compare the laconic style, and beautiful diction of the letter, will) the grand eloquent outpourings of his injured spirit in the speech, and decide whether they were ever manufactured by the same person. But he admits, that he wrote ihe letter, while he was got ir.g watched—may bs that is the reason. Itarriibwg D'c. 6, 1838.? 9 o'clock at night $ My Friend— A revolution is at h...

Our Course. Many of our friends are inclined to think that our course relative to the mw Governor, is characterized by more mildness, and apparent respect, than they think is due to him. We are free to give the motives which govern our conduct on any subject, and particularly this. IVheu Mr. Porter wai a candi.la'e, we believed it to be our duty to give to the public, such statements as assumed the imposing character of facts. We then thought, and still think we were performi ng an imperative duty which we owed to our fellow citizens. We done so alike fearless of their refutation or their conse. quences. We done so with the deter mined avowal that if any thing should be produced to disprove them, that we would be among the first to render him the most ample justice. It would be superfluous in us 'to sav that no such refutation ever appeaaed or that any thing his transpired to change our deliberatel y formed opinion. Nevertheless, the situaion of things have changed. Mr. Port...
