Oie of the many things which I have to regret,
ays a correspondent of the British Banner, w hen
I review my past lite, is that I did not, from ear
liest youth, at least as soon as ever 1 was able
lo do it, lake and preserve some good new. paper.
How interesting would it be now to a sexagenari
an to look into the papers which he read when he
was twelve or sixteen, or twenty years old ! How
many events would this call to mind which he
has entirely forgotten! How many interesting
associations and feelings would it revive! What
a view would it give of past years ! What knowl
edge would it pieserve by assisting the memory!
And how many valuable purposes of even a liter
ary kind, might it be rendered subservient to !
How much do I wish that 1 could look into
such a record when composing this short article !
But newspapers are quite dillereut things now
from what they were sixty, or twenty years ago.
They are unspeakably more interesting and valu
able ; in this respect, at least, (I believe in many
others,) these times are better thao the former.
Formerly the editors of newspapers wele obliged
to strain their wits and exhaiisl their means in or
der to obtain matter to fill their pages. Now the
great difficulty is, to iiosert all the valuable, inter
esting material that are poured upon them from
every part of the wsild, and from every grade
and phase of society. Now, newspapers contain
many of the best thoughts of the most highly gif
ted men, on the most momentous subjects, and
their reports of current events are among the most
reliable, and will furnish an inexhaustible fund
of entertainment to the end of lite.

The delegates ol the Democrat ii; Convention of
Allegheny County, together with a number ct I lie
citizens, invited this distinguished Statesman to
visit Pittsburg while on his way lo Meadville, Pa.
The following is Mr. Buchanan's answer, and is
one that will lie ri ad with much interest by the
people in general :
Wheatland, ni:ak Lancasteu,
Siptintlir 2ih, 1819.
(Jknim mkn : An absence from home
of several weeks has prevented me from
sooner acknowledging the receipt of your
very kind invitation to visit Pittsburg, on
my way to Meadville, where it is my pur
pose to go, immediately after the election.
This invitation, proceeding as it does from
the delegates to 1 lie late Democratic Con.
venlion of Allegheny County, as well as
from a numbpr of my other Democratic
frn-nds and fellow-ciliens, I most cheer
fully and gratefully accept. I .shall esteem
it a great privilege once more to enjoy ihe
opportunity of meeting and cordially greet
ing those good and steadfast fritinds, to
whose efficient and uniform support, amidst
all the trying scenes of my political life,
I have been so much indebted.
I feel that you do ine no more than jus
tice in attributing to nie " constancy, and
devotion to the cause of pure and radical
Democracy." This devotion has been
inspired by a deep conviction, coiifnnied

tied with the ascMidency of Democratic
principles. Indeed, our political oppo
nents themselves have, by their conduct,
!'orne ample, ih ugh tardy testimony to the
excellence 0f ,u! Democratic measures
which they, at the first opposed. It is a
''"'""I historical fa,;,, we worlly of am.
pie developemcnt, that the whig parly have
lll . 'hough s'owly and reluctantly, yiel
ded their acquiescence, one by one, to
nearly a ,ll(.aiureSi anj lh(,y ,1;lve
now bo-come the established policy of the
country. When we review the many im
portant political questions which, since the
commencement of Mr. Jellerson's admin
istration, have, in their day, agitated the
nation and ever ihreaiened "the Union, and
reflect that these have all, with scarcely an
exception, been satisfactory settled by the
Democratic party, we must be deeply im
pressed with this high tribute to the 'Dem
ocratic principles, our political opponents
themselves being the judges.
Fro i the very nam re of things, ;!S well
as from the peculiar character of our insti
tutions, two great parties must always ex
ist, and I may add, always ought to exist,
in this country ; ihe one conservative the.
other progressive. T,L. one c'iiiginjr t
the pasl, the other intent upon advancing
gradually with the spirit of ihe age. The
one claiming power for the Government,
the other for the people. Tho one acting
as a clog to the oilier, and sometimes pur
haps impeding it.s t00 progress.
The one is the great Whig, and the oilier
the great Democratic parly of the country.
It is our pride and our glory to belong to
the party which, whilst bidding fast to ihe
good, entertains no such slavish reverence
for antiquity as to prevent it from advoca
ting and adopting all new measures, consis
tent with liberty an J order, calculated 1 1
benefit the great mass of mankind.
Holding these principles, W(;
cease to be Democrats if we did not ardent
ly and actively sympathize with the patriots
o( all nations in their struggle to free them
selves from the hi,cLles of despotism, and
to regain the lost rights of man. M'e have
witnessed with intense anxiety, the nianv
heroic efforts, within the past anil present
year, of the downtrodden people through
out Europe, lo achieve liberty and indepei;
dence, and have had to deplore their diat
Irons termination. Brute force now rules
iu that quarter of the globe; but yet Eu
rope is not ilesiino,! to become Cossack.
It is true that the braie Hungarians ami
Cermaiis am! Romans have bene conoiier-
ed ; but their blood has not yet been shed
in vain. In the Providence of Cod, it will
sooner or later rise from the earth and claim
a just retribution. The Spartan band at
Thermopyhe were sacrificed by treachery
and overwhelmed by numbers ; but ibis
srerilicc was both ihe prelude and tbu in
centive tD ihli triumph of liberty over tho
innumerable bos'! of a barbarions and des
potic invader. Man's destiny is tu be free
to worship his Cod according to the dic
tates ol his own conscience, and to estab
lish the form of Government best adapted
to secure bis rights and liberties. Kcason
has long since exploded the slavish doc
trine of the divine right of Kings.
In the meantime, we ought to be aware
that our Government is an object of inex
tinguishable hale to the despots of the en-il.
The existence of a free Democratic Repub
lic any where is a standing reproach to
the in; and il lliey had the power to immo
late our insiiiu'.ions they would eagerly
rush to the sacrifice, h ls our example
which has disturbed the dismal and oppres

their rights. No unworthy compliance on
