Interesting from Japan.
Our readers have been apprized from time to
lime, that the Russians have been rapidly augment
ing their fleets on the coast of China during the past
year, evidently with a view of keeping a watch
upon our Japan Expeditions in those Waters. It
was shrewdly suspected that they intended to in.
'effete in sortie way with our efforts 16 obtain a
'tooting in Japan, or perhaps to steal a match on us,
and get the ear of the Emperor in advance. Thr'o
our East India files, received yesterday, we have
late infotmatton regardnez this movement, from
which it appears that the Russian fleet visited J.
pan sever 41 months after Commodore Perry's Ex•
pedition bad left, and were received with great
pomp by the Japanese authorities, and that the Ad
'libel sent up an important letter to the Emperor
at Jeddo.
From the Java (Dutch) paper of December 27,
we learn that the Dutch East India Company's ship
ilendriba arrived in the roads of Batavia on the
15th of DeFember, direct born Japan.
On the 20th of August there had arrived in the
roads of Nang,asaki —the Japanese port at which
is-located the Duch factory—(and were still lying
there when the liendiika left for the read, of Pa
penberg,) a Ruret.rn frigate, a corvette, a screw
steamboat, and transport ship, ut•der the command
of the Admiral Pontianne, conveying a letter from
the Chancellor of Russia to the Emperor of Japan.
On the 21st of September the Admiral, with a great
number officers, was received with great pomp and
honors by the Governor of Nangasaki.. The latter
was then received and forwarded to the capitol,
Jeddo ; however, at the departure of the Hendrika
the Russians were still waiting for en answer. Of
the American affairs nothing further 'was known
than *hat we have before stated in our journal,
viz that the U. S. ships-of war had arrived in June
at Jeddo, and were courteously received ; having
delivered a fetter for the Emperor, they took their
departure, promising to return in the beginning of
next year for an answer.
The Hendrika confirms-the report heretofore re
netted by the way of China, of the death of the
Emperor of Japan. At the time she left, his suc
cessor, the Prince Royal, had not yet been crown.
ad. According to ibis account of the Dutch, the
Russian fleet had been lying at Nangaeaki from the.
50th tiT Ang,ust to the 16:h of November—and was
still there when the Hendrika left. This would go
to show an unusual consideration towards them by
the Japanese authorities, an intimacy never before
permitted to foreqpiers. How much longer they
stayed there and what their subsequent proceed
ings were, we have no means of ascertaining, but
next hear of the, fleet at Loo Choo, a dependency
of Japan, and in its immediate vicinity. The ship
Robina, which .arrived yesterday from China,
touched at Loo Choo, where the Russians had
been at anchor for some time previous, but from
which they had sailed on the 20th of February, on
a cruise, but to what point is unknown. ft was
without doubt , for Japan, to be at Jeddo about the
time the American fleet (which leit Hong Kong
about the middle of January) might be expeeld
there to receive the answer of the Emperor to the
letter delivered in June last.
We may add here in this _connection that the
British have their eyes on this fleet of the Ras
(dans, and the very montirnt - that war ia r declared in
Europe the new. will be expressed to Chinai and
the British cluisetwon that station will snoop clown
upon it and make vizors of the whole expedition
before it has the le* intimation of danger.

drinks, except for mechanical, anistiesf, medical
and sacramental purposes: If the people vote fur
the enactment of such a law, it is to be enacted by
the next legislature, and enforced by adequate eon
stitutional processes and penaltiesc If the people
vole against such an enactment, it will be consid
erod a settlement of the question adversely to the
views of those in favor of a prohibitory law r and
an instruction to the next legislature against its
passage. The manner in which the ballots are to
be prepared and the usual legal formula of notice
of election are provided for in the bill.
The Common School Bill, an important measure
of which we shall give the details hereafter, 'pass

of the previous question, in the shape in which it
came from the Senate, and has been sent to the
Governor for approval.
On the same day, the Senate passed a very• im.

Cleveland, Painsville and Aslitabula company on.

The Senate has passed the Appropriation bill,
with several important amendments, and it goes
back to the House for concurrence. The bill ap
propriates nsarly six millions of dollars. Among
the items is one to pay contractors on the North
Branch. The appropriation of Sto,ooo to secure
the Towanda Bridge from damage by high water,
was stricken out in the Senate.
The resolutions proposing amendments to the
Constitution, byr limiting the State debt and prohi
biting municipal subscriptions, fiave passed both
branches of the LegiOature finally, so that they will
be submitted to the 'people at the next election.
The Legislature has not yet fixed upon a day for
final adjournment. Some time ago, the Senate
passed a resolution fixing on the 18th of April. The
House amended this to the 2d of Maya The Sen
ate further amended by fixing the 9th of May, and
the House again amended by inserting the 4th of
May. In this last amendment the Senate has not
yet concurred, having postponed the subject until
hionday, when they can estimate whether the ap
propriation and claim bills can be finished by

The Democracy 'of Brad ford, in Comity meeting
assitaltied: again reiterate and-proclaim to fheirpo.
Iffiest brethren:their irreconcilable opposition to
the measure now pending in Congress fur the "s
-pent of the Bth section of the art preparatory to the
admission ontissottri into the Union.' We *aro
der friends throughout the State against the cone-
games of disaster. and defeat,..which is our judg
meat will overwhelm as as aparty, if this measure
of injustice and wrong be forced upon the country
under a Democratie Administration, and indite alms.
ed name of Democracy. To the principles of the
Democratic faith we-profess an ardent and unaltera ,
big attachment, and we hold it an insult upon our
intelligence, and an outrage upon our principles, to
press upon our aceeptance as democratic, a measure
designed to defraud the laboring masses and their
posterity of their rightful inheritance, and to sur
the National domain to Southern capitalists,
as a field upon which to employ more profitably their
capital invested in slaves.
Democracy as taught by Jefferson. and illustra
ted in the administrations of the earlier democratic
Presidents, had no alliance or sympathy with slave
ry. As a local State institution, it was free from
Federal .interference; bqt never, until these latter
times, did slavery dare to claim the fostering care
and support of the National Government, for its
extension befbnd State boundaries. The power of
the Nation in the earlier and better days of the Re
public was repeatedly exerted to circumscribe the
limits of slavery, and to set bounds to its progress ;
and in this patriotic work, the Democratic party and
its leading Statesmen tookan active and prominent '
Standing upon the great and beneficent doctrines
of the Democratic creed—instructed by the teach
ings and examples of Jefferson, we solemnly pro
test against the attempt now made to prostitute the
organization of the Democratic party to purposes of
slavery propagandism. We claim for Democracy
higher objects, and a nobler mission—the elevation,
of man, not his degradation and debasement—the
protection of the rights of labor, against the heartless
demands of capital.
As citizens deeply interested in the honor of our
State—as democrats earnestly desiring the success
of our party in all its efforts for the protection of in
dividual rights, and the advancement of the general
welfare, we are anxious that this great and power
ful Commonwealth should occupy before her sister
States, the position of honor and party safety on
the great question now engaging the almost undi
vided attention of the American Congress and peo
ple. We condemn as dishonorable, and unworthy
of a party which has ever boasted of carrying its
principles and policy boldly inscribed on its ban
ner, to evade meeting fully and frankly the great
absorbing question now agitating and convulsing the
country. We demand that the Democracy of Penn
sylvania shall be heard in the settlement of great
National questions ; that the voice of the party in
this State,
shall not be smothered on the most mo
mentous issue which has been presented for the de
liberation and decision of the present generation.—
We make principle the test, and the only test of
patty fidelity—and utterly discard any other, as
calculated to detract from the dignity of party ac
tion, and to sink our party conflicts into a degrading
and demoralizing scramble for office—unworthy of
intelligent and independent men.
We earnestly call upon the Democratic members
of our State Legislature, to com•ider and pass the
resolutions now pending in the House of Represen
tatives, declaring the sentiments of Pennsylvania as
opposed to the bill before Congress for the repeal
of the Missouri Compromise; and especially we

the Legislature should fail to-meet our just espee..

as may be deemed necessary and proper to make
known to the country the feelings and principles of

are opposed to the threatened repeal of the Missouri

are demanded in view of the crisis now impending
