McARTHUR TO WORTHINGTON
Fruit hill Jany 30th 1813
A Bill was yesterday reported to the senate for removing the temporary seat of government, by Mr. Wm. Trimble agreeably to notice given the day previous it is said there is a majority in the senate in favour of the removal to M. Lan- caster we however, ho e that it will not pass both houses. Those members who board in the taverns fare but badly. it is believed by many that Mr. Ferree was sent here to drive away the seat of government. There is not a deasent Tavern in town.
Paint creek was the beginning of this week within a few inches of being as high as ever it was known to be. Scioto was also very high, much damage has been done; both fencing and corn, has been swept away from almost all the low bottoms.
We have not heard from the Lake since the fall of rain, we think however that it was not so great there as here great anxiety has prevailed lest the rising of the waters shoul.d cut off the supplys from the army.
We have not yet recd. any official notice of our exchange, nor of the trial of Hull. We recd no mail on Wednesday and it is uncertain whether we will receive any to-day.
It is calculate d by some that we will adjourn about the 10th Feby. we have done but little of importance. incormporation laws are the chief that have been passed.
We have mace an attempt to amend our militia law, but it is feared that it will be worse than when we took it up.
I am sorry to trouble you so often -- without I had nore of importance to communicate. The snow is about 6 inches deep and the weather very cold. Miss Sarah Ann Worthington is now here. Mrs. W and family are well except the small children who have the Hooping cough.
respectfully I am yours
