New Year's Day.
In the character 'of the pleasures of New-
Year's day thereis a moral which, on the gentle
?heart, will not be lost. In the brightness of
world, and the summer smilingness (-et
ternal scene, man moves away from his fellows,
and in a loneliness that asks no assistance from
sympathy, glories in his solitary pride; the ties
of society are broken up. But when desolation'
e • ,lopes the. scene, and the prospect smiles
no long- then he seeks the comfort of society
and the co •solations of friendship; the child
nestles by th .arent's side ; the parent draws
towards his offs ring ; the bonds of brotherhood
are brought closer: and we may kearn the great
truth, that though in prosperity merl may stand
alone in a scorn of their race, yet in gloima and
in sadness there is no foundation of happinvs
or strength bu . 11--iffx i aion, in love, and in
mutual trust. • 'Of the many festive days flan
nce flowered along the year, and sent a fra
gra e over the times, nearly all have been
los the country. New-year alone blooms in
per wial greenness, consecrated to the natural
sanctity of the affections. To the imagination
of the boy, the undoubted reality of Santa Glans
throvai an antique enchantment over life : he
lays his he s aihm fairy ground, and ;inks to sleep
in the erilitivating delight that his chamber will
be honored by the veritable presence of a Minor .
deity. It is a dark period in a man's life when
be ceases to hang up his stocking; it notes the
arrival of the time when " the vision splendid"
and the "trailing clouds of glory" that we
brought from a more radiant * world begin to
- die away
4 , And fade into the light of coinmon day."
The _winged poetry of Ihe I youthful spirit is,
exhausted, and we descend to the pedestrian
,prose of ordinary cause and effdct. New-Year
is thenceforth a comfortable, an agreeable, a
gay occasion, a day set' apart for paying and
tfeceividg visits; but the rapture.aed the glory
of boyhood have departed. ;These odd but en- I
gaging illusions, which with us linger not be
iond the barrier of childhood, were once the
delight of men of all ages and ranks. Bishop
and peasant, lord and citizen, loved to humble I
*heir imaginations - with the 'grotesque figures.
and sports of mummers and dancers. They
loved, once in the year, to throw off the yoke
of Reason, which was something new and un
easy to them, and abandon their nature to the I
wild dominion of Fancy, resolving that life was
enchanted, and persuading one another that
supernatural influences were around them.—
Some, whose taste had been struck by the fan
tastic beauty of these ancient scenes, hitve con
demned the dullness and monotony of the pres
ent ago, in which they are no longer practicable.
But the regret is hardly a sober one: for this
imaginative temper of our.. ancestors brought
• with it some heavy penalties. The excitable
temperament, the twilight intelligence and
knowledge which made them capable of attain
ing to extraordinary raptures of enjoyment that I
we are debarred from, made them liable to
causeless terrors and dreadful agitations front I
inexplicable occurrences and the fear of nog-
turnal spirits, that poisoned the peace of their I
days. if Reason restrains us from the ecstacies
of Fancy, she holds us up froM falling beneath
her scourge. While, however. the freaks and:
.fooleries of that day may well be left to slum
bet in, the obscurity of the ehro9icles, there ate
matters for which we profitably enough revisit
the glimpses of the past. Tp shed upon the
season and the slay the graceful influences of
religious interest ; to entwine aeon id the barer
columns of the sanctuary the wreaths of poetic
sentiment, and to hang upon the altar the gar
lands of a holy fancy ; to shape the substance
of piety into a form of c'aptirming beauty; to
learn these now exalted mysteries, we may
'well study the example of our forefathers.

Meeting of the Legislature
Thursday last was the day set upon for•the
meeting of the Legislature. The enate consists
of Whigs and 42 Democrats. he House is'
a tie, each linty having 50 members. tould
the members all be present there will be some
difficulty in regard to the election of officers—
which in our opinion ought to be equally divided
to satisfy both parties.
Upon the organization of the Senate, the 'seat
of Gov.Johnstou will become vacant and A new
election• be held, to supply the seat, now held
by the Governor. The district takes in the
counties of Indiana, Armstrong, Clearfield and
Cambria : The district is a doubtful .one, and
both parties wlll strain every nerve to gain the
Senator. At the election in October and Nov&n
ber laat the vote stood as follows:

'We cordiallrupprove of ill.' suggestions of

cessity of the passage of a General Alanufac
turing Law - by the next Legislature. 'ft has
been truly said that next to a l'roteciive Tariff
there is.nothing of so much importanCT to the
prosperity of Pennsylvania as a General Manu
facturing Law—a law .ruder which any number
and classes of our citizens may associate to
gether, and each place in joint stock so mfich
of his spare means as he sees proper, and thus
get en a manufacturing establishment in his
neighborhood—a law by which the opvrative,
and workingman may invest his surplus earn
ings in the stock of the establishment ter which
he is working, and from time to time increase
his' interest a his moans increase.
Ti"[ Similar laws have been the means of
establishing many manufacimies in the. Eastern
States: The stockholders of which are made up
ina great measure, from the men and women
employwl in them. It gives tile laboring man
an opportunity of investing his earnings in the
very Company by which he is employed, and
thereby, besides receiving his pay for tits daily
labor, he also receives hig' part of the prolitsof
the proceeds. IVhy then should our Legisla
ture oppose a Law that has a tendency to bene
fit the poor laborer We trust that no serious
opposition to such a Law will be made, if one
should be rep - oiled—which we have reason to
suppose will be the case

The roost remarkable of all the buildings in

nor l his house was b rot down, and either the
fins!' Government or the merchants of London
built this house fur him at great expense.
There is, we presume, no structure like it in
our country. Probably some ancient seat was
the pattern. The bricks were- brought from
England, and are of the best quality. The walls
of the first story are two feet and a half thick
of the second story, two feet. The present num
ber . of rooms in the main building is ninety.--S,
Originally there were more.. The late General
Henry Leei of the Revolution, took down some
of the partitions. The present hall is large
enough Mr four rooms. Besides the main build
ing, there are four offices, one at eacliZAnter,
containim , fifteen rooms. There is also a stable,
which, with the space allowed in our city sta

Mark Lend iu liurks Counly.—We learn that
an enterprising company from Philadelphia have
commenced digging for Black Leader PI umbago,
at the old mine on the farm of Edmund Plumly,
in Southampton, Bucks county. This Mine was
worked some years since by William Bodinan,
Esq., of Bustleton, and others, and a large quan
tity of Black Lead taken. out, most of which was
exported to England, but owing to the low price
of the article, the digging was discontinued. At
the present time, we are informed, the increased
demand for Black Leath and consequent high
price, offer sufficient inducements for working
the mine again, which is to be carried on with
vi"or, 'oir.e of the best miners in the country

The Black Lead from this ,mirie is of supe
riorquality; and is reported to be,the purest found
in this nountry or Europe.

Slapping Newspoper—Tl,e ...rrg,ament
plied.—lt is sometimes the case that subscribers
discontinue their papers because of " otlensive"
paragraphs which appAr in their columns. An
apt writer thus states and illustrates the case:—
" A certain man hit his toe against a pebble-stony,
and fell headlong to the ground. He was vexed,
and under the influence of anger and active-self
sufficiency, he kicked old mother earth right
saucily. With Unperturbable gravity, he looked
to see" the great globe itself dissolved" and come
to nought. But the earth remained, and only his
poor foot was injured in the encounter. ThiS
is the way of man. An article in the newspapers
touches him in a weak place, and straightway
he .sends word , to stop his paper. With great
self:romplaceneg, he looks to see a crash, whet
the object of his spleen shall cease to be. Poo
fool! he has only hit his toe against a World th,
does not perceptibly feel the shock, and injure
to no extent, any one butlimself.
