To our Patroins,
JCjTlie present number concludes the
first year's publication; of the "Columbin
Democrat," and terminates the editorial con
trol of the Undersigned. Mr. Henry Wuitn
heretofore Senior editor of the "Wyoming
Republican," hag purchased the establish
ment, and will hqreafter bo editor and prq-
prietor; and from his qualifications and pa
litical principles, I apprehend that no disad
vantage will bo sustained by subscribers
through the change. I return my sincere
acknowledgment to those through whose
exertions and patronage I was so well mts
tained during my twelve months' editorship
and would solicit a continuance of such
favors to my successor.
It is with tho most kindly feelings
friendship and esteem that 1 now express
' my regard on leaving the patrons of the
"Democrat," and tho pcoplo who form the
bmiable social circle which renders a resi
denco hero so agreeable: and while editor
of another paper in this Senatorial district
I shall neither forcet their personal friend
fillip nor overlook their public interests.

From a statement published in ono of the
Ttfnw Orleans nnnors. wo learn that nn the
21st of last month, the Now Orleans Banks
liail 2.070.723 dollars in specio in their
vanltH. Their notes in circulation amoun
tetj lo '1,734,730. Tho money placed with

lars. Tluir diHCOiinis ami loans were equal
to fifiv-two millions of dollars, on n capital
nnul in of iihont f irtv millions. Their in -
vestment in real wtatoi &c. were valued at.
Soino of the Federal nan'crs affect tho be-
ief that because no rcWt'ton approving of
ic General Administration was adopted by
the Democratic Convention recently held
in this place, that thereforo, the popularity
I Mr. van Uuren with tho democratic par
ty is on, tho wane. I heso wiseacres cn
tiroly over look tho address adopted by tho
Convention. The expression of confidence
in tho President, contained in that paper,
although brief, is but the echo of the senti
ment of tiie democratic parly throughout
the Commonwealth. Notwithstanding all
the clamor that has been created by the Fed
eral Bankitcs about the bill before Congress
to separate the Government from the Banks,
notwithstanding the misapprehension which
exists in a very small portion of tho Demo
cratic party as to tho effects of that great
and nationally important measure Mr. Van
uuren never stood higher in the confidence
and esteem of tho party in Pennsylvania
than ho does at tho present moment, For
proof of this fact, wo need only refer lo
to tho proceedings of every Democratic
mcctinir which lias been recently held in
the Commonwealth; At the unusually large
assemblage ol tho Hcmocrajs of the city and
county of Philadelphia, held on Friday last,
called lor tho purpose ot promoting tho elec
tion ol Gen. Porter to the Cluer Magistracy
of Pennsylvania, the following, among oth
er resolutions, was unanimously adopted:
"Kesolved, 1 Hat tins' meeting entertains
the highest confidence in the abilities, firm
ness and patriotism of Martin Van Buren,
President ot the U. States; his previous ra
reer as well as his course since he was pla
ecu in the 'residential Uliair, are sttcli as in
their opinion entitle him to the unabated
confidence and support of the democratic
party throughout the Union, and this meet
iug will at all times be ready to sustain an
administration at once enlightened ami pa
Wo refer particularly to this resolution,
btidause we observe among the names of the
gentlemen who officiated as officers of the
meeting, those ol Gen. Patterson. 1. D
Grovcr, Peter Hay, (editor of the Ameri
can Sentinel) and other prominent Individ
uals who were most active in getting up the

iiiuuiiug ieceuuy nciu in mat cuy in oppo
sition to too i rcastiry mil. tins tact is
important, showinir. as it does, that that nor
tion of the democratic party, who disagree
with the President as to the expediency ol
a particular measure, are not on that account
prepared to abandon cither the general prin
eiplcs for which they have heretofore lion
estly contended, or the Chief Magistrate
whose whole life has been faithfully devoted
to a defence ot those principles. It isi there
lore, idle lor the redcral presses to attempt
to create even a suspicion that the populari
ty ot Air. van uuren is on me decline in
Pennsylvania. Harrhburg Jleporleri

Wd understand that the P. Jlaster Gencr
al has determined lo restore the mail facili
ties, formerly existing between the north
and West Branches of the Susquehanna, at
those two important points, and has issued
proposals lor carrying tho mail three times
a week in coaches, from Canton to Mon
roeton. which will complete tiie connexion
from Williamsport to Towanda. This will
be very gratifying intelligence to the inhab
itants of that section of the state, who will
not fail to perceive in this a new evidence
ot the disposition ol the Post Mastei Gen
oral to accommodate tho public by increas
ing the mail facilities wherever tho inerea
sing improvements, population, and inter
course will justify the measure, as they
unquestionably did m the present instance
I ho present incumbent, in redticiuir the
mail facilities, and thereby curtailing the ex
peases of the department, when he first en
tered upon the duties of his office, we then
thought, and still think, made unnecessary
reductions of tho force employed on mail
routes in Pennsylvania. Wo aro clad to
find, however, as the resources of the de
partmcnt will warrant it, he is restoring the
labilities granted by las predecessors.
'I ho Harrisburg Chronicle says that Gert
David R. Porlei "was one of the moving
spirits in the loco foco meeting in Hunt'
injrdon, which, in 1830, denounced the
chaitor of thu United States Bank of Pcnii
sylvania as having been obtained througl
fraud," &c. This is what we like lo hear
and wo do tint doubt hut it is a fact.
was on that ground we voted, with thous
anils of others', for him for Senator in 1830
and for the very same reason wo shall again
with many more thousands, vote for him
for Governor. If that is all the objection
the Chronicle can find to General Porter,
his election by 40,000 majority is certain
ycrry to, .uetnocrcu.
Money la becoming a slippery article as
witness another instance,
Mysteriousi Tho late Mississippi Leg
lslaturo discovered that tho "literary fund'
of the State, amounting to 0170,000, could
neither bo lound nor accounted for. J h

fBoth lfouscs of the Legislature have pass-

pay S100 to each Regiment of Volunteers
in this stato who shall encamp to drill for
thrco successive days. Tho bill also pro-
ides lor the payment dl $50 to each Bat
talion. This act will have a most salutary
fleet in strengthening and inspiration our
numerous volunteer corps.
A Moxstkr. Wo learn, that a few days
since, tic engineer on tho Norristown rail
road, fortunately perceived m time, when
nearly opposite tho falls, a bundle laying
directly athwart one of the rails; and on
stopping to icinovo it, discovered it to be a
young ci, rolled up in some clothes, and
alive! where it doubtless had been placed
bv its inhuman mother. The little innocent
,vas properly taken caroof, but no clue has
yet been discovered of the monster who
thus sought to destroy her offspring.
Mr. Garretson offered an amend
ment to" make the salary of the Super
intendent of Common Schools. 500
dollars pur year.
Mr. Johnston moved to amend the
amendment, to increase it to 1000 dol
