It has been eon mderablv enlarged, and is now indepen dent in politics —which leaves it open to she furor of all parties. We much pre fer it to be independent than a wishy washy Republican piper. JJV would call the attention of our readers to the Lecture of Rev. 0. 31. Blake, on our first page this- week. They will find it well worth the time and ap plication necessary to a proper reading of it; and even those who heard it delivered will find it worth reading over. It is' published by request of a number of those who were and were not present at the delivery of it. The Goal lemplar, for December, is on our table—and as usual, with contents which have made it one of our most wel come visiters. The preseut is the second number of the new volume, and contains a good steel—engraved portrait of 31 its. FRANCES D. (JACK, than whom there is not a better writer for the home circle in our land.

Th" Prospectus of the Golden Prize, in another columu, presents the unusual anomaly of a newspaper offering a large pecuniary premium for subscribers. Al though we are not favorable to the class of newspapers of which it is a "distant relative," or rather representative, we' find, on looking over a specimen number . sent us, that the Golden Prize has much to commend it as well to the literary to the g<-ueral reader.

The address before the Potter County Agricultural Society, by S, J'. JOHNSON, F s q , on Tuesday evouing last, was an able and well-directed effort in behalf of die farmer. A large and intelligent audi ence listened to it with unuiistakeable evidences of pleasure and profit, and fre quently greeted the speaker with well .'leservcd applause. Wc regret that 31r. Johnson will not permit us to publish his excellent address. We hope he w ill re consider this determination, as we believe ' s good effects would be doubly felt among " u r farmers, could they who were not pi<">ent, and the wives and children of those who were, sec and read the address. j Tewptnince Moctip g —.The gathering] on 31 on day Civemug last was really en couraging, theugli rather small for Court week. ller. A. 3leTntyre delivered # an excelled address, containing much in formation in regard to the history of in temperance and progress of Temperence, i in the world, as well as some good advice ; and was followed by Rev. C. 31. Blake, who offered a revolution, (which we give below,) with appropriate and excellent re maaks in regard to its sentiments Yve regret that we have not room this week to notice thie meeting more cxteudedlv. The 1 following is the resolution referred to above: R.'/ohed That the success of the Temper-! ntice cffoii in this county, is a cause of joy to all friends of peace, prosperity, and good or-, dcr—but that it docs not absolve any person . from the duty of continue 1 activity in the no ble work of elevating humanity to a higher and 1 happier sphere. 3Ve would do injustice to ourselves and those present, did we not notice that the Poudersport Musical Society were there in their strength, and acquitted themselves nobly. Its members deserve a better no tice than we have room to give them now.

We. however, knowing that its • beauties cannot spoil with time, have laid it I in our drawer, and will give it to our readers when our columns become less crowded. We hope to hear often from our uew contributor— and tender her the poet's corner in our paper a- often as she may become insp rised as iu tiie Snow >ng. The following being of local interest, we give it this place among our Home 1 affairs: LIKES TO P. A. T. They say there's a star, for the faithful and, true.

Say, say does it shine, but the dark clouds i among. Such a boon, 1 would prize, if I only conld see A star in the skies, ever shining for me. But listen, the fleet breeze wafts, to my ear, A cadence so sweet, I am hreataless to hear: It brings a good cheer, and bids ine rejoice— ; The music 1 hear, is the " still small roice.''

On Monday morning an of ficer and the owner of the horse and bug gy, (a livery concern,) from Chemung County, X. V., arrived in pursuit of the thief—claimed friend Smith's butrtry and , % .

DAILY TELEGRAPH FOR THE SESSION. rilllE Harrl-'hurfj Daily Telegraph is no AT in n_ the second year of Us exLteuc.e. it was I started last fall rather as an experiment. and has succeeded beyond the most sanguis ex- 0 pectutions of its publishers. It has gradually ' won its way to public favor, until it has placed ! ' itself upon a linn and sure ba-;s. and is now 1 one of the permanent " Institutions of the Capital. It has been specially conducted in <j all its departments with an eye single to the public good, and its gradual and steady in crease of patronage, lias been a gratifying cvi- f deuce of the public appreciation of the labors £ of the publishers to make it what it is. a relia ble record of the public events of the day, lo cal and general. It shall be the effort of the publishers to cnn'intie it in the spirit in which t has thus J*' r been conducted, to aYfl to its general and local interest, and to merit its •teadilr increas..'"* patronage. During the approiM'king session of the Leg- 1 stature, it is our intentiou f ° rc**ke the •' DAILY 1 TELEGRAPH"' a correct arid RELIABLE exponent of i lie doings of the Legislature of Pennsylvania. ] With this view, a corps of competent U"port- • rs will be employed m aach Ilou.-e, and a tu'L j lowplete aud accurate report of the proceed-! ings will be given every day up to the adjourn ment of the morning sessions, embracing the details of the business of the sessions, sketches if debates on all important and iutere.-ting questions, and such editorial comments as the importance of the subjects, anil their bearing upon the public interest.- may suggest. The course of the paper will he strictly next 'ml in politics, the aim of the editors being to fair and impartial accounts of the doings of the Representatives of the people, leaving . their constituents to judge of the action of their 1 public servants for themselves, on the review uf the proceedings, as they are fairly presented to them through our columns. The session will be one of more than ordin- ! ary importance. The derangement ot the cur- ' v rency. and the peculiar position of the Banks, ' will require. or at least, will excite, much leg islation, and will, in consideration of its iiu- 1 portant bearing upon the general business i ] prosperity, be a question of absorbing public j interest. It shail be our province to present to the readers of the Telegraph full and imp&r- s rial records of the legislation upon this and ail ' other subjects. c Owing to the derangement of business affairs generally, incorporated companies for inanu factu'ing. mining and other purpose-, will also require much lrgisi. tioa, and all persons in terested therein cannot fail to be benelited by a. careful every day reading of the proceedings on such subjects. Mi public documents of importance cma-, ' nating from any of the sial tispariments, or from either branch of the Legislature, will nl- 1 so be published in our columns at tiic earliest i date possible. Business lacu throughout the State, who dr- > sire a correct knowledge of the doings of their representatives during the sessions of the Leg- isiaturc, and we know there are many such, do not properly sppreeiute the Telegraph. Through its columns they can obtain this ' knowledge, and we hope to see them avail 1 themselves of the opportunity it affords twsn ( to obtain correct and early information. iYe i know if they once received it they would not 1 ag tin do without it. TJje Td-geaph will contain also tit. vdh la test news of the day. domestic and fnrugn. by telegraph and the mails; and will be a perfect , mirror of the news throughout the world. 'I'll" LOCAL department will be attended to as usual, and will gi\e u faithful r word of ev ery tiling of interest occurring in our immedi ate midst. The faithfulness and ability with j which this department has ben conducted heretofore, will be a sufficient fffcarantyto our , citizens that their immediate interests w ill not ■ be neglected.
