It has been mentioned that the transmission of
the electricity or galvanism could be discernible
by various means well known. If any indica-
tion, however slight, is made, that is enough,-
all that is wanted being that it should be per-
ceivable by the person placed to watch the tele-
It has been assumed, that the electric current
is capable of transmission by means of a single
impulse from Edinburgh to London. But it is
not indispensable that so great a distance should
be accomplished at once. Intermediate stations,
for supplying telegraphs with new galvanic in.
fluence could be resorted to, and its perfect effi-
ciency still be preserved.
The best made of troughing or protecting the
metallic conductors, and separating them both
from each other, and from the surrounding sub-
stances by which the electric or galvanic influ-
ence might be diverted, would of course require
considerable scientific and mechanical skill, but
the object appears perfectly attainable. Insulat-
ing or non-conducting substances, as gumlac,sul-
phur, rosin, baked wood, &c. are cheap; and the
insulation might be accomplished in many ways.
For example, by laying the wires, after coating
them with some nan-conducting substances, in
layers betwixt thin-slips of baked wood, similar-
ly coated, the whole properly fastened together
and coated externally. These slips might be per-
haps ten yards long, and at the iJiHUtsnreo ,,-
""..^. .. +,..,+ -. Ft.(J uiiu aat tui tru c tmu lon OT The
wire, by the change of temperature, might be
adopted. The whole might be enclosed in a
strong oblong trough of wood, coated within and
pitched without, and buried two or three feet un-
der the turnpike road.
The expense of making the telegraph propos-
ed, is, of course,an important element in the con-
sideration of its practicability and utility.
The chief material necessary, viz: copper
wire, is by no means expensive. It is sold at ls
6d. per pound, of sixty yards in length. The
cost of wire from Edinburgh to London,say 400
miles, would thus be about 100L.-but say for
solderings, &c. 1001. additional-or that each
copper wire, laid from Edinburgh to London,
would cost 10001. sterling; and that the total ex-
pense for the wires necessary to indicate separ-
ately each letter of the alphabet, would be 25,-
0001. The purchase of so large a quantity would,
of course, be made at a considerable less price;
but probably one or two additional wires might
be needed, and the circuit of the electrical influ-
ence must be provided for by one or more return
The coating, separating and troughing of the
wires can be accomplished by low priced materi-
als, and the total expense of the whole work,
(except the price of the wires,) allowing a large
sum for incidental expenditure, has been rough-
ly estimated at 75,000/; making a maximum ex-
penditure of say 100,000/. for the completion of
the Telegraph. For a proportional additional
sum it might be extended to Glasgow.
The average of the Parliamentary estimates
for railways is about 15,700/ per mile, so that the
whole cost of the Electro Magnetic Telegraph
proposed, would only amount to as much as the
construction of a railway of between six and se-
ven miles in length.
As to the working of the Telegraph, it is ap-
prehended,that even if the speed of writing wero
not attained, there could at least be no difficulty
in indicating one letter per second. At this rate
a communication which would contain sixty-five
words, would occupy about five minutes. This
is supposing the vowels to be allindicated. But
abbreviation, in this and many other respects,
would, no doubt, be contrived; and the number
of words in the communication supposed ore
greater than necessary for an ordinary banking
or commercial letter, or for friendly inquiries,
and responses. Supposing, however, that each
communication was to occupy five minutes, und
to be charged five shillings each--if the tele-
graph was worked twelve hours a day, (that is,
six hours from each end,) it would produce a
revenue of 361. daily, or 10,8001. per annumsup-
posing there were to be 300 working days in the
year. If, however the plan is practicable, the

No one can doubt-that there would be a very
great demand for the services of such a perfect
telegraph as is here supposed capable of being
constructed. In every department of commerce,
in shipping, in banking, and all money transac-
tions, in the communication of public and poli-
tical intelligence, in the law, and in family and
friendly intercourse, the utility of the telegraph
would be immense. By coining at the same
time to the two ends of the telegraph, parties
might almost enjoy all the advantages of a per-
sonal interview, at a trifling expense. The con-
sequence of such a machine being established,
would be to bring, as it were, the cities of Lon-
don and Edinburgh into the immediate neigh-
borhood of each other, and to produce transac-
tions and communications of kinds not hitherto
known or practiced. Were the example follow-
ed all over the kingdom, it would create, per-
haps, one of the greatest changes in human af-
fairs, called into operation by the ingenuity of

The annexed article, which we copy from the
New Haven Herald,bears the initial of Professor
Olmsted, who has devoted much-attention to the
phenomenon in question, and has broached a
theory on the subject, which may be found at
length in Silliman's JournAl of Science.
The fact of an occurrence of an extraordinary
exhibition of meteors, or shooting stars, on the
morning of the 13th of November, every year
for six years past, afforded a sufficient reason,
independently of every theoretical consideration,
for watching the heavens attentively, on the
night of the recent anniversary. The result has
justified our anticipations; and we are able to
say that the annual meteoric shower of November
has been repeated the present pear. The scale,
indeed, was vastly inferior to those of some other
years, but still th- phenomenon was marked by
such distinctive peculiarities with respect to the
number, origin, directions and trains of the
meteors, as to leave no doubt of its identity with
In order that every part of the firmament
might receive its due share of attention, the four
quarters of the heavens were parcelled out among
eight persons, two to each quarter, one to observe
and one to record.
l ne eaiiy parL 0o me -e'v ciig vi t o t 'i ur
afforded some signals of promise. A copious
rain which fell on the previous night, attended
by an easterly wind, had given place to a serene
sky, with the wind at the west; from the setting
sun diverged large columns of a peculiar rose
colored vapor; and, before six o'clock, an auro-
ral pillar, of a crimson hue, presented itself in
the northwest; but before seven o'clock, every
unusual appearance had vanished, and left an
unclouded sky.
The full moon, however, shone with so strong
a light as almost to hide the stars, permitting
none to be seen below the third magnitude; of
course, no meteors but those of unusual bright-
ness could be visible.
No shooting stars were observed until five
minutes past one o'clock, when they began to
appear at considerable intervals, emanating as
usual from the head of Leo, which constellation
was then ascending the eastern sky. The me-
teors gradually increased in number and bright.-
ness until day-light. lNearly all, as they darted
forth, left visible traces of their paths. Some of
these were brilliant, and all must have had a
high degree of brightness to have overcome so
strong a moonlight. Indeed, in such a state of
he sky, it is rare on common evenings to see
shooting stars at all. These traces were in most
cases to be regarded, not as trains, arising from
he deposit of luminous matter, but as mere lines
f light, owing to the velocity of the meteors,
which was so great that a continued impression
was left on the eye, like that of a stick ignited
,t the end and whirled in the air. Trains re-
maining after the extinction of the meteors,
which made a conspicuous figure in the meteo-
ic shower of 1833,) are rarely luminous enough
o be visible in full moon light. Only two were
observed on the present occasion.
The whole number counted during the night
was 226. Of these, all but 10 or 12 either radi-
ted from a point in the head of Leo, or moved
in lines which, if continued, would have passed i
through that point. The position of the radiant
was at first near the Lion's eye, (at the star Mu
Leonis) but afterwards moved southward and i
eastward a little, and soon after 3 o'clock became
stationary, near Epsilon Leonis, (right ascension
46 deg., declination 24 deg. 30) within half a
egree of its position in 1836.
The maximum, or period of greatest frequency, <
as usually occurred about 4 o'clock; but on the
r,.sent occasion, after 3 o'clock, the numbers ra-
idly increased and remained nearly uniform for t
h next three hours, averaging nearly one per
minute. s
The various meteorological instruments were r
attentively inspected during the night, but no- I
thing remarkable waa observed. The Zodiacal 3

th, when last sees, just before the morning
awn, it presented abroad pyramid,faintly lumi-
Ius, having its vertex a little below Regulus.
Jp to the 29th ot October, the last time when,
in account of the moon, observations on it could
e made in the west after sunset, no trace of it
uld be seen. Will it in a few days withdraw
self from the east and rise rapidly in the even-
ag sky towards the constellations Capricornus
nd Aquarius?
The spots on the sun, (which some have sup-
osed to have a connexion with the zodiacal
ight,) are very remarkable at present and pecu-
iarly deserving the attention of astronomers.
yesterday (the 13th) eight distinct groups were
visible on the sun's disk, even to the smallest
telescopes. These, with larger powers, could be
solved into more than sixty distinct spots.

Thursday, Novenmbel" l 3, 1837

The Vice President of the United States arrived
in this city on Monday afternoon, and left town on
the following morning for the seat of government.
He had been on a visit to the eastward, and when
it was understood that he had left New York for
Philadelphia, a committee of the democratic citizens
of Kensington, and a similar body on behalf of the
democracy of the city and county, met him at Bor-
dentown, and escorted him to Kensington, where
he was received by a large concourse of citizens.
Col. Johnson and the Hon. Mr. King, of Alabama,
with the committee and other citizens, proceeded to
the hotel of Mr. Flanagan, and partook of an en-
t3rtainment which had been prepared for them, In
the evening they attended the Chesnut street Thea-
tre, and on the following morning the Vice Presi-
dent returned to Washington.

The N. Y. Courier and Enquirer and other whig
papers, now that the battle is over, are treating the
Conservatives, as they call themselves, with any
thing but cordiality and affection. The deserters
from the democratic ranks are not to receive com-
missions in the army to which they have attached
themselves, but must be content to serve as rank
and file. The Courier and Enquirer appears to

intimates that they are not to be trusted, ",having
deserted the administration party only on the most
narrow and selfish inducements." There are
quarrels in plenty in reserve fur that party which,
like Mr. Webster, "breathes freer and deeper than
they have these eight years past." The Scotch
sometimes advise those who are too noisy when tri-
bulation is coining, "to keep their breath to cool
their porridge," and the hint is perhaps applicable
to these free breathing gentry. Would it not be
better "to pause and profit by it," as Mr. Biddle
would say?

It will be seen by the following returns, that
Democracy has again triumphed in this State.-

HARRISBURG, Monday, Nov. 20.
To the Editors of the Pennsylvanian :
Gontlerne Th,-This morning the Convention rn-
sum 'd the consideration ot'Mr Doran's resolution
to enquire into the expediency of annulling or al-
tering the charter of the U. S. Bank.
Mr Doran said that he had omitted to call up
his resolution on account of the pressure of the
times. He had changed his opinion with regard to
the proper course to be pursued. He intended to
call up the subject in another form. He did no
approve of the conduct of his colleague Mr McCa
hlien, in calling up the consideration. He under
stood that Mr McCahen was a military man; bu
he, Mr D. was not willing to fight under his ban
Mr McCahen thought that if any member of
fered a resolution and neglected to call it up, i
was proper for any other person to do it. He di
not ask his colleague to fight under his banner
but under a higher authority, that of his constitu
ents; to whom the delegates of Philadelphia coun
ty were pledged to effect the repeal of the Ban]
Charter if it had been improperly obtained, and i
it could be justly repealed.
Mr Biddle asked whether at the present time o
general distress, it was expedient for the Conven
lion to proclaim its right to rescind every charte
with or without cause. We ought not to contain
ue agitations which cause property to fluctuate in
Mr Martin thought there was no danger no:
impropriety in taking up any subject of public in
terest and throwing it before the public for theio
calm and serious consideration. There were tw(
parties in this State: one believed that this bani
charter was unfairly obtained. Whenever they
proposed to examinee the matter, an out
cry was raised that there was danger in touch
ing it. This fear and dread of touching any sub.
ject was altogether erroneous. The members o.
the democratic party in great numbers have obtain

there was no danger of these men wishing to do
any thing to impair the rights of property. He re
gretted that his immediate colleague did not fee
more disposed to urge on the ball which he had
set in motion. There was no harm in inquiry
He hoped the postponement would not carry.
Mr McCahan believed'that our Legislature could
not make a law or a contract, which a subsequent
one could not repeal. Let us inquire if it be sc
and if it be not, let us put in the Constitution
provision by which the power of repeal will be re
SMr Chauncey denied the right of the Conver
tion to enter into any such inquiry. He aske
the advocates of the resolution to show the right s
to inquire, to offer any plausible ground for bh
living that this body was competent to make thi
Mr Brown said it was not the first time that M
Chauncey had doubted the right of this body t
act upon questions which a majority had decide
to act upon. It was necessary that we should ac
upon this. The Constitution of 1790 provide
that the rights of corporate bodies shall remain a
if the Constitution had not been altered or amended
Now the question will arise, shall that provision b
renewed? and if renewed shall it relate to all th
existing corporations, or shall some be excluded
-suppose this charter had been perpetual; woul
the people have no right ever to repeal it? If nol
it was a mockery to talk of our having a free gov
eminent. He would not live under such a gov
eminent. Call it by what name you please, it i
a despotism-a tyranny. Free government wouli
be a.solecism, an absurdity, if there were no pow
er to get rid of pernicious institutions. The ques
tion of expediency was another thing. He dim
not fear to trust the people to decide this question
they would decide it rightly.
Mr Porter said he would vote against the indefi
nite postponement. It was a matter of great im
portance. The question whether corporate privi
leges could be resumed by the Legislature was o
great importance. It was important that the
people should be assured that when corporate
rights were granted to them, they should not bt
taken away. His opinion was decidedly that the
power to create banking corporations was given to
the Legislature; that a charter was a contract
which neither party could rescind without the
consent of the other, and that this Convention did
not possess the power to repeal a charter any morn
than did the Legislature. He feared the vote tc
postpone would be misunderstood or misrepresent.

joy. Resolved, That in despite of the white wash
ion, report of a Committee of the House of Represen

tical pressed with a conviction, that the charter for

and use their influence and best exertions towards

syl- the coming session of the Legislature.
Sin- Resolved, That sad experience teaches us t
re. under our present rotten banking system, our co
cess try is neither safe in its free institutions, nor(
er a we enjoy any permanent prosperity, inasmi

ever nagers of said institutions to regulate the prices

ered they have in collecting and hoarding in tt
for vaults, nearly all the silver and gold in the co

rom shin plasters and other rag money to overflow
hess country,-wherefore, we do hereby further instr
tate our members in the State Legislature, to ex

of a present banking system as will efectually ret
inly dy the evils now complained of, and especially
the oppose with all their might, every effort that n
