The late Legislature.
Never was a legUiative body so valorous
in promise and so weak in rerformance,as
the last General Assembly of I'ennsylva
cia, although two thirls of each branch
coincided in political professirn with the
Kxeeutive. Elected by dissensions among
the Opposition, the Democracy had full,
ample power had complete control and
mu-t bear all the responsibility.
In reviewing their labors, we must first
cofice that they utterly failed to make the
least reform in, or additional security for,
the IiaLking System.
The sale of the remainins Stat Worts
to the Puntnry k Erie Company, is an :
important measure, the benefit or evil of
which is to be determined by the good or ,
tad management cf the Company.
The Militia and Liquor Rills were cot '
only uncalled for, but we believe will be .
hostile to the public interests.
In creating new cEce.s, and raisiDg the ;
salaries of the Governor and themselves,
this overwhelmingly ''Democratic-' Legis
lature was (considering the ' hard times ')
very liberal, patriotic, and benevolent '
with other people's money 1
The Senate pretty nearly "sustained "
President Buchanan, while the House as
evidently sympathized with his opponent,
The mortification of the party over their
evident failure, is amusing and suggestive.
We quote a few of the anathemas from
their leading Journals and others :
"Scarcely less Uri!tu!rh.-l far infamy
than the preceding infamous Legislature of
1;07, the members of this body must
return to their homes with the conscious
ness that they have left UNDONE most of
those things which they ought to have
done, and done many of those things
which they oughi not to haTe done."
Hirritlurj Patriot i "Dem. cran )
'Each member received 8700 for IN
FESTING our Capital nearly four
months." S-lintynvt Journal.
The Lfromiiri (ii:-'r says; "That
exceedingly nse-fu! body, the l'ecnsylvania
Legislature, adjourned cn Thursday. Last
year it sold the best public improvements
of the State. and this year sold the balance.
If it will sell the Capitol next year, we
do not know cf anything else belonging
to the State to sell the Legislature toll
itse'f many years ago."
'The list of acts passed numbers 500.
Of these, only p in!c.n are general laws.
The amsunt of special legislation about
township election distriets.personal claims,
county roads, and hundreds cf things
which the Courts ought to be empowered
tj settle, is amazing. Puila. llulhtin.
These may eutSce. The election? ia
Reading, Lancaster, Pittsburg, Erie, Phil
adelphia, k;., have made a good beginning
towards a revolution ia the State;next fall.
There is no certainty in reformation by a
change, yet the people often resolve to
try it. The present good feeling among
the opposition, may place the next Legis
lature unequivocally on the side cf Liber
ty and Economy.
Emanciia aK'N in Russia.-The em
ancipation excitement is still kept up in
Rusiia. This 'despotic"' country is set
ting an example which should not be lost
on the world. The St. Petersburg Ga
z'.Ue publishes an imperial decree signed
1 J tie Emperor Alexander, establishing,
ia the districts of Kiew, Podotia and Ycl
Lynia, a preparatory committee for carry
ing out the emancipation of the serfs iu
those provinces. One of the members cf
the local nobility is appointed President. ;
Rich committee is to consist of two mem
Lers W each district, selected from the
landed proprietors who have serfs, and of
two experienced landed proprietors desig
nated by the head of the local adminis-:
tratiou. The "autocrat" seems to Lave
more respect for the "mud sills" of society
than some of our ''Democratic" statesmen.
The Cuances is the West. A let-!

The most interesting, to housekeepers,
cf all fish, is the common shad, which
may be regarded not only as a source cf
wealth, but as a miracle cf nature, in its
multiplication and continuance. Not
withstanding thousands cf myriads are de
stroyed by the agency of man, and tecs
of thousands of myriads in the ova state,
we find an undiminished abundance, year
after year, which can- only be accounted
for by their extraordinary creative ability.
They spawn abeAit Lrty -five thousand to
each female. Tney ascend our rivers
from the 1st cf April to the 10th cf June,
for the purpose of spawning, which they
accomplish in the same maDncr that bass
do, except the mail fails to cover the ova.
This necessary operation is performed by
the ebbing and flowing tide. The organi-
ration of this fish, says Mr. Pell, enables
it to breathe cither salt or fresh water,
