HINTS ON FAMILY GOVERNMENT. Family government should bestnctlv impartial. Nothing can be more destructive of do. mestic harmony than paternal favoritism. So long as children of the same family differ especiall y in their characters & dispositions, [and this is often the case] so long as some are gentle, affectionate and obedient, and others stubborn and unfiliul. it is impossible for any parent fo regard them alike, and if he could, it would or.lv show his own want of moral disciiinina tion. He must approve and disapprove reward and punish, with a strict regard to personal character. This u the gnat principle on which every good government is administered. So far as parental love consists in complacency a father may certainly love a dutiful bettei than an unduiiful child. Indeen he cannot help it, and there is no phrtaillty in this. But if he indulges one child more than another, ifhe pttnnishn this and lets that go free; if he is blind to the faults of one and sever...

STATE DEBT. From the Har. Intelliaeitcer. DEFINITION AND AMOUNT AT DIFFERENT PERIODS. We have frequently defined State Debt to be those loans which are denominated "perm-ment," and are made for a term of years to induce capitalists to afford facilities on the lowest possible terms. In this view we have excluded "temporary" loans from the definition of "State Debt," in it* strict sense, because they are only financial operations ot avowedly a temporary nature, and the claims created by them are intended to be discharged on the first opportunity. Thus they are no more permanent debt on the part of the State, than is a private loan by an individual, after the close of the bank today in which he has his funds, procured to enable him to conduct his business until he can, when the bank opens to-morrow morning, draw upon his resources in the institution. But "temporary" loans may lead to a "permanent debt," on the part of the State, bv "nermanent" loans becoming necessary to disc...

FATAL ACCIDENT. We learn from the Baltimore American that a melancholy accident occurred on Monday, on the Ba'tiniore & Susquehanna rail road, about twenty miles from that city. A woman was waiting at one of the stopping places to take her passage for Baltimore, when the train approached and gave the usual signal. Finding herself on the wraugside to get into the cars, the woman attempted to cross the track! out before she could do so, the engine struck her on the head and she felfbetween the rails; the train passing over her and instantly severing one other arms. When taken uplshe was quite dead. Every effort was made by ihe engineer to stop the engine, but the impudent movement of the woman was sr sudden that his exertions were fruitless. The passengers in the cars united in a certificate exhonorating the conductor and engineer from all blame whatever.—Com. Herald. A bill has been introduced in the Mississi ppi Senate, and will probably pass iuihoriz:ng"the Governor...

From the Register. /TEFRESENTATIVE CHAMBER, J Harrisburg, 6th Feb. 1839 r Mr. J. P. Jonest SIR—We happened, by chance, this day to see a paper called the "Advocate & Sentinel," in which we saw the proceedings of a meeting said to have'been held in Huntingdon on the 15th January last, and among (he proceedings we find a resolution in the following words, viz "Resolved, That Messrs. Cunningham and Morrison, the Representatives from this county, having lost the confidence of the virtuous and just of all parties, be respectfully requested'to resign their seats to make room for better men." Now we would like to see the gentlemen who appear to have figured fin this it is mat meeting, wny tney am not sena us a copy of this resolution, as it was impossible for us to obey, without knowing their wishes. But we would just inform them we do not feel fully at liberty to grant their request, for the following reasons: 1st. Because we consider it would be rather too polite to resig...

A SERIES OF DISASTERS. From the Trenton State Gazette. A few weeks ago, a boy of Gideon Hulit, near Allentown, fell into his father's milt pond, while sliding on the ice. One of his brothers was near, and went to his assistance, but broke through the ice himself. A third and fourth brother, and then the father, attracted by the cries of the drowning boys, gran, one after another, to save|them; but they too fell through the ice. The father and one of ihe boys extricated themselves; but (were unable to rescue the three others. At the funeral of these boys, the carriage of their uncle was dashed to p ieces, the horses becoming restive, and the uncle's collar bone broken, or dislocated. Those who had been in this carriage, got into another, which was also overturned and broken; and the horse ran against the vehicle ot another uncle, upset it, and threw out those who were inside, without however, injuri lg them seriously. It was reported, also, says our informer, that the father ...

wllore about the Appointments Never in the annals of political, or party warfare, have we seen more honest indignation evinced, than that shown b y most ot the honest supporters of David R. Porter, at the appointments which have been made under his administration. During a campaign of three years, the whole energies ol that party were directed to convincing the people, that Ritner'H administration had insulted the peoples' rights, first, by increasing supervisors—next, by appointing men to fill offices in one county who had lately removed into it, or who were brought from another county—and last, though not least, by appointing men who had not any petitions, over those who had large and respectable ones. Every honest supporter of Mr. Porter knows that those three charges were industriously inculcated, and honestly believed by themselves to be cause of complaint. In what situation are they now placed. Every objection made against Ritner's administration holds doubly good agai...

•71 esc Arrangements. Since writing the above, the interestin g information has come to town, that Piper was not willing to be a piper for the party^ at the paltry salary of 480 dollars per an * num. He first applied lor collector at Hollidaysburg, but was disappointed, when his friends said he musf have something, that something was presented in the shape of the Collector's office, here. Whatever was the Price of tome men Piper would not stand it, and hie bullyfriend, flared up we suppose, and Lo! the sporting gentleman, is allowed, by some writ of "tantrabogus" to obtain "judgment of ouster" against Jai Ford, appointed at the weigh«scales at Hollidaysburg, and Mr. Piper takes hi* place, while Mr. Ford \s forded over the mountain, to Johnstown , to be weighmaster there—and the man who should have, and would have been ap pointed at first, had he not been out-Generaled.

PERILOUS ADVENTURE—DARING INTREPIDITY; PRAISEWORTHY BENEVOLENCE. Information reached this city yesterday morning, that several families who lived in dwellings situated on the meadows above the city, were prevented from reaching the shore in consequence of the raise of the freshet; they were driven in the upper apartments of their houses, and the water still rising, had reached them there; their lives were threatened, and in their distress they called loudly tor assistance, but with a frail prospect of obtaining any. The river at this time was full of driving ice, the water had raised to a fearful height, and it seemed(folly and rashness to attempt a rescue of the suffering and unfortunate beings. At this critical June tare, and when their situation appeared to all who witnessed them from the shore, $- heard their cries [for "help" to be almost hopeless, nine young men ot this city volunteered to make an effort to save them. With this determination they furnished themselves wit...

¦ ¦ m Mr. Gay, Engineer We understand, has been up the canal line, and declared it as his opinion, that two new spans must be built in the aqueduct, at Jackstown before the navigation can proceed. Tho Supervisor, we understand, is making every exertion, to urge the work on with all possible despatch. And we trust there will be no hindrance on the opening of the Navigation. The Engineer says the work can be done by the 20th March. Rumor, says that some of the petty politician* about Petersburg, were anxious to get Mr. Gay to re-measure the work done by Coryell & Johnston, on the Shal vers creek outlet, or inlet. Poor dupes, do they not know that the reputation of an Engineer is something more lasting than the ephemeral fame of a politician; and did they think that a gentleman of Gay's attainments and science, would allow himself to dabble in such filthy business, as trying to injure the reputation of another engineer, and that too, merely to satisfy the spleen of some...

Official Interferance. Some of the applicants were told Actore Mr. Porter left his home, that he should not have any thing to do with the canal appointments, it was the duty of the «ma! Commissioners; and when they were appointed, he was done with it. This kind of nonsense was told to some who came to ¦ee if Porter would fulfil his promises, and who the Governor was anxious to get rid ol, together with their importunities. Thi* pledge like the rest, has been broken, for it i* not only said, but universally believed, that James Claik, President ol the Canal Board, has resigned his chair, solely on account of the continual interference of Porter. Mr. Clarke, finally became »o exasperated, that he wholly with drew from the room on one occasion, and positively declared he would not again reenter it, if there was not less instructions given from the Governor. We understand, that McElwee and some kindred spirits, when an appointment does not suit, at once gather into a gang, and g...

PENN'A, LEGISLATURE On Saturday in the Senate, Brown the mob Senator from Phila. Co. moved to add two names to the committee appointed to inquire into the cause of having an armed force at Harrisbnrg. A vety sharp discussion arose—and, as may be imagined, no little of the debate was rather hard upon Mr. Brown, as he was implicated as one of the rioters, it looked a little queer to see him anxious to be placed on a committee to try himself. Some of the Loco Focos even went so far, as tojustify>. the violent and revolutionary measures o the mob. In the House, the resolution inquiring into the delay in publishing the Debates of the Convention was agreed to. Much ot the day was spent, in discussing an amend. ment to the Wyoming coal company. An amendment was finally adopted, making the stock holders absolutely liable; and we are sorry, to see that every whig and anti-mason did not vote for it. Mi. Cox gave notice that he would bring in a bill to make all stock holders lia...
