An hour in the Muse of Represen-
Since the commencement of the present session
we have often been asked "What is the Legisla
ture doing 1" From all the information we have,
we can only inform our readers that the Senators
and Representatives of the people meet in their re
spective Halls at half past nine o'clock A. M. and
adjourn at 1 o'clock P. M. each and every day, ex
The following will serve to show our renders a
specimen of the legislation of the present session.
On Wednesday morning we went into the Hall
of the House of Representatives, to hear the say
ings and see the doings of a collective body that is
acknowledged to be of respectable talents, and of
dignified character. After the reading of the jour
nal of the preceding day, a Mr. Ambrose, of West
moreland county MC and offered a resolution to the
effect that the members of the legislature receive
but $2 a day hereafter for their services. The res
olution was read, and its sapient mover looked very
wise as he thought of the effect which this wonder
ful manifestation of economy would have upon his
constituents. If we understand the course of par
liamentary proceedings, a motion was here made to
proceed to a second reading of the resolution. One
member now inquired of the Speaker whether an
amendment was in order; and several others pro
posed amendments. It was, however decided that
the House proceed to a second reading and consid
eration of the resolution. The vote was taken.—
As far as could judge, the Whigs voted in favor of
the resolution, and with some of the Locos in its
favor, it passed second reading by a small majority.
A member then moved to amend so as to allow but
$1 00 per day. Another moved to amend so as to
make the resolution apply only to the members of
the present legislature. Gen. Roumfort rose with
a slip of paper in his hand, and stated that he had
made a calculation, in which he allowed so much for
Scotch herring; so much for crackers; for washing
one shirt a week six and a quarter cents; and per
haps one or two other items, amounting in the whole
to $1 061 cents a b week ; he therefore proposed to
amend the resolution of the gentleman from West
moreland by inserting "$1 06+ cents" in the place
of "$2 00," and "a week" instead of "a day."—
Some one of the members inquired whether Gen.
Roumfort allowed any thing for oysters. Another
moved to amend so as to allow members just as
much as would pay their boarding, lodging and
washing. A German butcher who represents Phil
adelphia county in part, rose and moved "as no
poor men be's allowed to have a seat in dish house."
The ridicule was not at an end yet: some waggish
member moved that the seats be sold to the " lowest
bidders." Some one of a more sober turn of mind
arose and reminded the House that they had Leen
in Session about 40 days and had done nothing me
yet ;—he deplored the waste of time and the foolish
discussion indulged In. Another moved to amend
so as to allow such members as think $3 00 a day
too much for their services to leave in the treasury
as much as they think they do not earn. He
thought that $3 00 was not too much for some mem
bers, and that others were dear to the Common-
wealth at $1 50 aweek,—that it was proper to make
discrimination &c. &c. At last a motion was made
land seconded. to nostnone the
ly, which was carried. The resolution referred to,
and the discussion thereof occupied the House, pre
cisely one hour. We had seen enough. We left
the House at half past ten o'clock, and at sundown
were 30 miles from the assembled wisdom of
"Democracy" in Ohio.
The party" in Ohio appears to be in about the
same condition as it is here, and we might safely
add, every where else,—that is, pretty near ready
to drop to pieces. The editor of a leading locofoco
paper, who was a delegate to their recent State
There must be more harmony existing in the
Democratic ranks than appears to be at present, or a
worse than a " Waterloo defeat" awaits us. The
delegates, or at least a number of them, that we
have seen, who were members of the Convention,
returned disheartened, and aro ready to hang their
4 4 harps upon the willows."
We hope the Democracy in Ohio, nor elsewhere,
will hang their " harps upon the willows" until af
ter the Presidential election. It will be a great die
appointment to us if they become disheartened and
permit the election to go against them by default.—
The Whigs everywhere are calculating upon enjoy

Young Men ofPenneylvania!
Young men of Pennsylvania!—You who at the
coming election will, for the first time, be permitted
to have a voice in the decision of those grand ques
tions of State and National policy upon which the
two great parties of the country are divided—we
call upon such of you as arc predisposed to vote'
against us, to scan closely the ruinous and destruc
tive measures of Locofoco policy, ere you decide in
their favor. Trace them out and you will find them
all leading to one grand point—the prostration of
every thing that tends to our commercial, manufac
turing, and political greatness—the ruin of States,
communities, and individuals—the impoverishment
of the nation and the pauperism of those who are
compelled to eke out their support by the labor of
their hands and the sweat of their brow.
Young Men beware that you record not your first
vote in favor of these destructive measures! Re
member that your success in life depends mainly
upon the prosperity of the country and the healthy
tone of our manufacturing and commercial relations.
Are you dependent Upon your own exertions?—
bear in mind that the principles of Locofocoism are
calculated to depress the workingman in the scale of
society—to reduce the wages of labor, and stop the
onward march of productive industry. Compare
the false principles and professions of the Loeofoco
party with those inscribed upon the broad banner of
Harry of the West, and your own good sense will
teach you which are the more worthy of support.
The Memphis Enquirer of the 28th ult. contains
an excellent address to the young men "who will
cast their first vote for President in November
1844." The number in the State of Tennessee is
estimated at not less than five thousand. The
writer addresses his young compatriots in the fol
lowing language :
As one of yourselves, I appeal to you, and ask,
if we shall falter or lag behind in the great contest
which approaches ! No; let us place ourselves in
the very front of the great Whig army, and march
in solid phalanx to the polls in defence of our prin
ciples. They are holy; they are righteous—the
same in defence of which our revolutionary fathers
fought and died. It is true, they had a Washing
ton to lead on their victorious armies, but have we
not a Clayl—a leader not less distinguished in the
councils of the nation than was the former on the
tented field ;—a patriot not less devoted, and, above
all, a man not less honest than the "father of our
country" himself. Aye, such a man is Hexer
CLAr of Kentucky. And inasmuch as our princi
ples can only be carried out in the administration of
our government, by men ; and, as we firmly believe,
that he, of all other men in the Union, is the ablest
expounder and fullest representative of those prin
ciples, for the purpose of placing him in the highest
office in the gift of the American people, let us—
young Whigs of Tennessee—pledge ourselves, each
to the other, from this time until the first Monday
in November next, to use ail honorable exertions,
with a zeal which no circumstances could abate, and
with a determination which no reverse can Over
come—throwing ourselves into the thickest of the
fight; and, calling to the rescue our fellow Whigs
—your:g and old—throughout the Union, never
cease to battle until the glorious object of our coun
try's redemption is accomplished.
The Philadelphia United States Gazette of the
9th inst. says:—Some few years slaw, a person in
New York astonished the people by remo,"Nsubodi
ly, large three-story brick houses. Churches were
seen to be „ moved out of their places," and it was
thought that on the occasion of some great fire, the
extension of the conflagration might be checked by
the removal of a square or two of ware-houses,
merchandize, clerks and porters, without interfering
with the regular routine of business, and only chan
ging the number upon the store to accommodate it
to its new location. We never learned that these
plans were realised ; but it appears to us that some
thing of the kind is going forward in Lancaster, in
this State. We have before us the " Sentinel" of
the city of Lancaster, which contains a list of del
egates to the Baltimore Confirmatory Convention
in May. We have not been able to count the num
ber of names, which indeed appears to be number
without number. Seven mortal columns are crow
ded with the names from the townships only ; those
of the city are not given. Glorious, good old Lan
caster county names, sprinkled with some emigra
tions from Chester county ! There are the Konig
=tellers, the Witiners and Esponshades ; the Lou
denslagers, and the Stemmens, and the Schenk.;
the Streechers, and the Boasters, and the Stauffers,
and the Rohrees, and the Minnoches, and the Merit
zero; the Herrs, and the Shumons, and the Kauff
man.; tee Shitches, and the Brubachers, and the
Kempers; the Hostitlers ; the Henneshades, and
the Hunsucker.; the Erismans; the Nidsleys, and
the Griders; the Fenstones; the Shoutsmyers, and
the Brubackers; the Yanks, the Buckwullers, and
the Yenta; the Longs and the Shorts, the Highs
and the Lowe; the Goods, the Beads, the Manna,
and the Geists; the Porters and the Beers; the
Carpenters, the Millers, the Weavers, the Slayma
kers, the Coopers, and the Chandlers, and the Ba
kers; the Fields, and the Woods; the Goodrnans
and the Seners; the Christians and Musslemans ;
the Fedlors, and the Harpers, and the Whisslers ;
the Buyers add the Zelers; the Kirks and the Tem
ples; the Luthers and the Divines. And such a
glorious host, numbering, with the city of Lancas
caster delegates, about two thousand, is going to
Baltimore to foretell the victory of the autumn—
foreshadowing that which they are to produce.—
Lancaster county will probably give a higher ma
jority for Henry Clay than she has ever given to any
candidate—a majority that shows how important is
the present harmonious movement to the true po-
sition of Pennsylvania next fall.

A Great Work.
Boston Harbor was frozen over by the excessive
cold weather of week before last—a very unusual
occurrence even in that cold climate. The people
of Boston, however, were determined that Jack
Frost should not interfere with the regular running
of the British Steamers to and from their city, and
they resolved to cut a passage through the ice—a
distance of some ten miles—from East Boston to
the outlet of the Harbor. A subscription was open
ed, and the money necessary to accomplish this
great work was subscribed at once. The Boston
Post gives the following account of this last sample
of Yankee enterprise:
OPENING OF THE HARBOR.
Yesterday morning the gentlemen who had con•
traded to open the harbor, commenced operations.
They had a force of about three hundred men six
horses, and ice implements of all shapes and sixes,
among which, the most effective were fee-ploughs.
The forces were divided into two parties, one of
which commenced at the open sea below, and the
other at East Boston in the vicinity of the Cunard
wharf. Four furrows were cut, about 25 feet apart,
thus making a channel 75 feet wide, sufficient space
to admit of the departure of the steamer Britania.
The ice between the two southern furrows, 25 feet
wide, as soon as cut, was broken up and hauled un
der the ice by means of ropes and grapnels. Last
evening, about sunset, a channel 25 feet wide and
five miles long had been opened by the party who
commenced at East Boston. The party below, at
the same time, had cut an opening two miles in
length and 75 feet wide. When the two parties
met, the remaining ice which is cut into two fur
rows above, will be broken up and floated out with
the ebb tide, thus leaving an open channel 75 feet
wide, from East Boston to the Southern outlet of
the harbor, which is entirely clear of ice. The
party who commenced at East Boston used horses
to drag the ice-ploughs, but below it was found im
practicable, and men had to perform that labor.
A horse and sled and two men, while driving
over the ice below, fell through, and were rescued
with much difficulty. This is the only accident, so
far that has occurred. The weather was remarka
bly mild during the day, and large numbers of peo
ple were on the ice, including several ladies, witness
ing with apparent glee the opening of the harbor.
Last night the weather continued so mild that
the contractors continued their exertions, intending
' to continue them through the night until they have
completed a channel sufficiently wide to admit the
steamer Britania to depart to-day. They have tents
and fires on the ice, and suitable refreshments for
Lowell and its Manufactures,
A late number of the New York Tribune states
that there are eleven regular manufacturing compa
nies in Lowell, including the "Locke and Canals,"
or Water Privilege company, which was incorpora
ted in 1792, hut did not commence operations until
1822, which may be regarded as the year of the
foundation of Lowell. These eleven companies
employ an aggregate capital of $10,700,000, and
employ 6,395 females and 2,345 males. Besides
these, there are in Lowell extensive powder mills,
paper mills, a cord and whip factory, flannel mill,
l.lnn4n/ mill, fm,ndlry, }Amatory. &c., employing a
capital of about $500,000 and about 500 workmen
making the whole manufacturing capital of Lowell
$11,200,000, and giving constant employment to
over 9,000 men and women.
The principra cotton manufactories at Lowell run
6,194 looms and 201,076 spindles, producing 1,425,
800 yards of cloth pet week, or 74,141,600 within
the year 1843. The amount of colon 4 , used up"
by them during the year was 22,800,000 pound..
One woollen factory makes 9,006 yards of cassi
meres and 1,800 yards of broad-riotho per week,
and use 1,000,000 pounds of wool and 3,1,00m0
pounds of teasels per annum.
Previous to the year 1822 Lowell was a rugged
barren spot, inhabited by two or three families of
boatmen and fishermen, and not worth ten dollars
per acre, including every thing upon it. Now it
is the second city in the State of Massachusetts in
point of wealth and population. In 1840 the pop-
ulation was 20,797. Such are some of the results
of the policy of protecting domestic industry.
A young man named JamesJ. Bertram, commit
ted suicide in Philadelphia, on Friday, the 2d inst.,
under the most singular circumstances. It appears
that the deceased, in company with a friend, having
with them a double barrelled gun, started on a visit
to his mother residing at Kingsessing, on the West
of the Schuylkill, and on their return, while cross
ing a field he made a sudden halt, and placed the
butt end of his gun in the earth and the other end
against his breast, and rested one foot on the trigger.
While in this attitude he said to his companion, 4 I
am not in fun, and the man who dies here first must
be buried by the other ; agreed,' responded hts
companion. and no sooner had that word escaped
his lips ero the fatal trigger was pulled and the
young man was sent into eternity. The deceased
was about twenty-five years of age, of sober and
industrious habits, honorable in his dealing, pros
perous in business, moderately wealthy, and had
large expectations. It is said he was engaged to be
married; the nuptials to have been celebrated on
Tuesday ; that he had purchased a dwelling some
where in Callowhill street, and had it partially fur
Henry Clay in Georgia.
A correspondent of the New York American,
thus writes from Augusta, under date of Jan. 25th:
We have just opened the Presidential campaign
for the " Mill Boy," from which we pledge our
selves not to retire until victory has perched upon
our banner. You may tell your subscriber. that
Georgia intends to take the banner this time. with a
mrjority for " Old Harry," that will make the na
tives open their eyes. There are no Van Buren
Democrats in Georgia. They all go for Calhoun,
or any other candidate that has been named by the
Locolbco party, except, " Little Van." Many will
vote tbr Clay, wile others will throw their suffrage
away. We intend to strain every nerve until they
crack again, and if we do not succeed, it will be for
want of " wotes and woters.' Won't we have some
