Harrisburg is the seat of government, on the east bank of the Susquehanna River, 97 miles west north west from Philadelphia.

The Alleghany Mountains cross the state from south west to north east and there are many smaller ranges on each side of the principal ridge, and parallel to it. These mountainous tracts cover all the central part of the state, embracing nearly one seventh of its whole surface. In the south east and north west, the country is either level or moderately hilly. The soil is generally good, and much of it is of a superior quality; the richest tract is in the south east, on both sides of the Susquehanna. This part of the state has been long settled, and is under high cultivation. Between the head waters of the Alleghany and Lake Erie, the soil is excellent. The most important production of the state by far is wheat, which grows here in great perfection; and next in value is Indian corn. Rye, barley, buckwheat, oats, hemp, and flax are also extensively cultivated. Cherries, peaches, and apples are abundant, and much cider is made. Although the state is better adapted to grain than to grazing, yet in many parts there are large dairies, and fine horses and cattle are raised. Read more...
