[Curreponeler.ce of the Potter Joitrnal.]
IlArtrosnuftG, January 27, 1559.
FYInIP CEIASE—t presume that you
end this readers of your JOUMNAL are
well "posted" in regard to the doings m
Ole "wise ones" here at the Capital, as
the daily papers give true: full and aocu
Gate reports of the "ohauging'acts" that
pccupy each day the assembled wisdom's
attention. You have seen • from these.
Oat as is.usual in all ! l egislative bodies.
there are some "would tie groat men"
whOse importance is ninolt greater in the
ayes of "1" than-, but I must nut cast
'reflections, for men, or would be men:
there are ever here who have nut the feat .
of "Legislative dignity before then," that
do use mines and whips.tu bolster up their
consequence. For proof of this, see the
record of Judge Pearsou's Court, of a few
days since. Well, then, speaking fairly,
although the members of this Legislative
body are nut, all of there as great men - as
they think they are, yet, as a whole, it is
in intelligenee . superior to that of the twt,
past sessions—so say those who _should
be capable of judging--,aucl as taken Col
lectively it intelligence is more "'nature,"
its age is Much less, than that of the few
years 'past. There must be twenty-live
members whose age is not yet thirty, and
bat few whose lives have passed the me
ridian; and as might be expected, there
is sonic "warm blood" that "fires" quick
ly and with "hot haste" and cools but
with exhaustion. 'Tis said that
and wisdom" make "dignity." That
may be so—or was in days long 'past—
but now, age and - dignity wake the ap
pearance of wisdom.
The Speaker of the House, Wm. C. A.
Lawrence, is without doubt, the voutig•:.st
'wan that: has ever presided over the ['clip
aylvania Legislature; yet young as he is
and as mucn dissatisfaction as was felt by
a large number of the members, yet with
a little care on his part, he will ,make
popular presiding offither.• He has one of
the neeessry requisites ofh good Speaker.
developed in au extraordinary degree—
that of promptness: He never hesitates.'
and although I believe him sometimes
wrong—which can be.retuedied by the
liouse—yet•it is better to decide proit- 1
14t and wrong, than to hesitate. Ile 4111-
ny in an officer who is presiding Over a
large body pf men, is a failing that will
lead to conf6ign, at least.
The legislatiun thus far has been of a
local and private nature,! and it will con
stitute the principal part of the business
to be transacted. Ora Getter* Act has,
passed and received the signature of the
Governor, which will, or rather has, nn
doubtedly received the hearty •approba

say that this belief accounts for the aux

The Sham Democracy Alivan
Against the People.
We hope all our ireadera read the ex
tract we gave from a speech of Mr. Wash
burn, showing the aristocratic tendencies
of the 'ids-named Democratic party. The
action of Congress on Mr. Grow's amend
ment to a pending bill in relation to the
Public Lands, shows this aristocratic ten
tlency in an unmistakable manner. -
"This Amendment," (says the corres
pondent of the N. Y bokpeadeot,) "pro.
posed to limit the public sales of land un

passed twice, once by a count or stand-up

There-is no reason why,an actual settler

aristocratic tendencies. Not a single Re
publican voted for the speculators, and
rot a single Buchanan democrat voted
against them. Allison White, Member
