The Capitol.

--The hand of improvement has been busy about the Capitol building of late. In anticipation of the assembling of the Provisional Congress, on the 25th of November, the Senate Chamber has been suitably arranged by enlarging its dimensions, and the introduction of neat, though not gandy, decorations. The floor is covered with a handsome carpet, and the gilt and crimson hangings, over the President's chair and the windows, impart to the room a very pleasing appearance. For the accommodation of the State Senate, an apartment is in preparation on the second floor, in the northeast corner of the building. It was here that former Senates deliberated, composed of wise and grave men, whose shoulders seemed fit to bear the ‘"weight of mightiest monarchies."’ The hall of the House of Delegates has been put in good order and condition for the sessions of the State Convention, which commence next Wednesday.
