Democratic County Convention.
At a meeting of the Democratic County Com
mittee, held at the Morgan House, February 6,
1861, in pursuance of a call of the Chairman,
Reiolved, That the Chairman of the County
Committee be authorized to call a County Con
vention, to assemble at Harrisburg on the 18th
inst., for the purpose of selecting six additional
delegates to act in conjunction with those
elected by the late Democratic County Conven
tion, to represent Dauphin county in the Demo
cratic Siate Coniention called to meet at Har
rislnig on the 21st inst.
In pursuance of the above resolution, I here
by notify the Democratic citizens. of Dauphin
eowitY to meet in their respectiye wards and
to*isbips on the, 16th init., at the usual time,
and place, and select delegates to the County.

acter. lie conchtded,by saying that he 'was
not asserting 'anything, (which wais - P:erfictly
evideoti) hut asking questiona for his hearers
to consider and decide in their own minds.r—
The whole of his address indicated that he was
laborini itider a beirildengent of ideas ; or,
that lieirai endeavoring to mystify the minds
of his hearers as to the opinions : entertained
After all the talk about "enforcing the laws' ,
in the seceding States, we find the Republicans
in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives
voting solidly for a resolution requesting our
members of Congress to favor the abolition of
all postal services in those States. That is,
they would have the Federal Government collect
the revenue, and insist upon the seceding States
performing all their duties to the Government,
while the Government abstains from performing
its dories to lise States. Now the Federal Gov
ernment is just as lunch - bound to enforce the
Postal laws as to collect the , revenue.- if 4..
suspends the operation of lawn turpolicial to tho
States, it has an equal right s to suspend : laws
imposing burdens upon them. The principle
is the same in both cases. The effect may be
different. Let the Government in a spirit of
hostility undertake to deprive the seceding
States of postal facilities and, at the same time,
rigidly exact the revenue, and it will furnish
those States with a substantial reason to help
on the revolution. Are not the Southern States
going out of the Union fast enough that this
Republicsan Legislature must adoptmeasures to
drive : them out ?
From all sections of the State we hear of
preparations making by the counties to send
delegates to the State Convention, which meets
in Harrisburg on the 21st inst., indicating that
the Democratic party is still alive, and that it
has not been, crushed or annihilated by thpde
feat of November last.
In feet, -no politieal prganisation- was ever
possessed of so much inherent vitality as the
Democratic party. Defeats that would sweep
other parties out of existence only seem to
..It It is a perpetual illustration of
the trite quotation about "Truth, crushed to
earth." There is no such thing as keeping it
under. It is nearly as powerful in defeat as
in victory. Its influence upon the destiny of
the country cannot be destroyed by its ene
mies. It is the strong support to which the
people are finally , obliged to look in times of
imminent :peril, such as that which now darkens
the futUre of the 'Union..
The true value of the Democratic party is
illustrated by the fact that its temporary defeat
is almost invariably followed by troubles and
disasters to the - country. - 'The. success of the
Democracy at the-Presidential , election would
have averted the'secession of the Southern
litateS,'lniiihe consequent dissolution of the
11td0z!...1.4 the.dithoulties :that have followed

strength in the midst of a defeat, which has
served to demonstrate the truth and justice of
its doctrines, and the falsity and injustice of
the doctrines of its opponents.
While defeat has strengthened the Democracy,
victory has ruined the Republicans. It has
shown the immediate results of the false prin
ciples upon which - Republicanism was based,
and the ulter - litdiffereace of its leaders to the
good_cf- - ihe country. At this time, when events
ji‘ti amply vindicated the position of the Dem

A resolution was introdUced into the Senate
on Monday last, which proposed to aprropriate .
$BO,OO l O out
_of the State Treasury for the
relief of iher"Kansas sufferers. Of all the_igt-,
upon thethis is about
the moat impudent: The KePublietin party "ca
v+entlid immense mod Of 'mime, sendin g
emigrants into Kansas, armed and'equipped to
"fight for freedom;" but now that these same
nettlers are in a starving' and wretched condi
tion, the Emigrant Aid Societies have no money
to purchase food and clothing fez , 'them, and
modedtly ask the Stated to °mile to their assist
ance. • The same elass.of men who,subsaribed
so liberally to the fund for the purchase of
Sharp's rifles, and made the country ring with
their shrieks for freedom, now cruelly abandon
their deluded victims to the danger of death
from starvation. Thaddeus Hyatt has appealed
to the Bostonians for help, in vain, The
fountain of their sympathy is dried up, since
Kansas has secured the blessings , of freedom—
without bread. No better evidence could be
furnished of the utter heartlesness of the •whole
tribe of abolition agitat0r5........ . -
But they have no right to , ask the State to
repair the damage they have done. The con
dition of the peciple of Kansas may appeal to
private charity. The money in the State
Treasury is not a fund to be dispensed in,
charity. - If it.is,.charity begins at home, and
we have multitudes of poor in our own State
fully as deaditiate and infinitely mote de l derving
of aid from the State than, the Kansas suffer-
Then if'the state r should• undertake to ap
propriate money' for liansas„who. would dis
bursa it ? What security -Would we have that
it would be devoted to the objeet oontemplated,
and not be diverted to the use- of Isenur of 'the
mahrauding bands et rebbers; who 644 here

the- Republicans. feel responsible for the dis

them go to work and fund for their

A REMAIMA.DLE Invorrio2t-A - Neto Paddle-
Whe . el-41wirtant Improvement in Steam Ifiraviga
tion.—Mr.:R..,Densmore,;of this Stete, says:the
Neer.Fork; ening Post, has recentlrinVented
new paddLe•wheel , which , is caloulatedtofob
vieteall:thndilfieulties experienced in the use
of -the . idd style. A pair of these wheels were
recently placed upon the steamer Anne, of Van
Santvorl 81. C_0. 1 4 SwAskio pipt - ci
w f jsome,
tahlnkilidgmlosl - vtherain-.
terested in the improvement, were invited oh
board for a trial trip s tn.day, The Anne left
her wharf at. the Not nrßubinson street at ten
A: hi., and proceeded up the East River nearly
to Fort Schuyler, returning to her wharf at
one o'clock. The experiment was entirely
suceessfill, demonstrating fully the advantages
of the new invention over , the oldpaddle-wheel.
With the.ordinary Wheel the.. Anne has never
been able to make more than nine miles an
hour; but with 14 - r. Densmbre's patenfehaVai
made sixteen, with lead - than a; full head , of
steam. Apart from the increased spied, a
great advantage is attained in the motion of
the boat, which is quieter, with less 'strain
upon the machinery than formerly. With the
old wheel the water was thrown proftiSely Upon
the guards, rendering it impossible for one to
stand in the vicinity with comfort. • The new
wheel entirely obviates this idiffieulty.• The
boat glides - through the Water with an almost
imperceptable motion the only vibration notice
able resulting wholly from the motion of the
engine. - •
The peculiarity of the new • invention' con
sists in the fact that the 1 ocket Of the wheel
touches the water in a vertical instead •of a
horizontal position. The resistance in the first
,instance is materally lessened, and afterward
is increased by its hold on the water. The
wheel is made in the ordinary way, except lie
buckets. Instead of the buckets being placed
against the arms in the'usual biannet,' they are'
setoff from the, arms by means of a .series of
brackets attached le 'the arms,"pia -a •• correil
