DEMOCRATIC MEETING.—The democratic meriting
on Tuesday• night was sue,/ an one as we expected to
see assembled, when the claims of tl:e Democracy of
Pennsylvania, ip connection with the merits of her can
didate fur the Presidency were to be considered.
When we went in, ALEX. BRACKENRIMIE, F,sq.,
was addressing the meeting. lot cling the personal and
political character of the Hon. J A S. Buell ANA N, and
the bursts of applatose with which his remarks were
received, spewed how completely the meeting was
identified with the speaker in feelings of respect and
admiration for our great statesman. After Mr. B. had
concluded, GEO. STEW ART, Esq., was repeatedly call
ed for. In Mr. S's speech he declared that he always
had maintained the cardinal principles of democracy, I
and although he had beeu found acting with another
political party heretofore, henceforth he would be a ;
democrat in the strictest sense of the word, and that he
would give a hearty and warm support to democratic
man and democratic principles.
After Mr. &o 'art bad concluded, the committee re
ported through their chairman, Hon. C. SIIALER, the
resolutions and address. The resolutions were adopted
as they were read, and many of them were received
with long and eathasiastic cheering. The address is
an eloquent a n d powerfully written document, and al
though some may attempt to raise objections to the
frank mannc.r in which it speaks out the plain
yet every hone-tdernocrat in Pennsylvania must admit
that it is a candid statement of the present position of
affairs; and that the safety of the democratic party re
gal.-es that its admonitions should not be passed over
lightly. The address and resolutions were written by
Judge SIIALER, and they are just such as his fellow
citizens Would expect from hint, on a subject in which
he felt a warm interest.
Pt '
After the report of :heCommittee had been adapted,
WrLsos WC:Astacus, Esq. was loudly called for,and
addressed :he meeting with much eloquence and spir
it. Mr. M:. is always a happy speaker, and possesses
the talent as well of sustaining his position with pow
erful argument, as of exciting the nth th of his audience
to aboisterous degree. He was never more "at home"
than on Tuesday evening, and the approbation which
his r.2marks e!L!ited, must have been as gratifying to the
speaker, as they were cheering for the cause.
Dr. E. D. GA.ZZA,DI was next requested to address
the meeting. He apologized to the audience for not
making n set speech, but stated that he approved of the
sentiments of those who had preceded him, and pled.
ged himself to doall in his power to advance and for
ward the claims of Pennsylvania.
After the appointment of a Committee of Correspon
dence, and the transaction of some other business, the
meeting adjourned
We hope to be able to lay the proceedings beforeour
readers in to-morrow morning's paper. They would
have appeared to-day, but there were some alterations
necesi , m7 to be made by the Committee before they
could be puliliihrd.
"THE A tilltic. , t DEMOCRAT."—This is the title of
a new paper started i❑ New York, %%Melt professes to
bathe ' - organ of the American Republican party."—
The principal objects of the paper are represented to
be the "amendment of the 'Naturalization Laws so as
to make a residence of 21 years necessary to citizen
ship,"—and the repeal of the Common School Law of
New York city. The principal occupation of the con
ductors of this paper, seems to be, to abuse and de
fame these who teach and those who profess the doc
trines of the Roman Catholic Church.
it is sufficient to determine the character of this pa
yer and the party it advocates,that,according to its own
showing, MiLe Walsh and his Spartans aro • fri end ly to
their cause." This of itself seals the doom of the
Atrr...rican Democrat and its sappurteTs.
t . ,lrlre observe that the Ladies' Companion gives
a brief but candid sort of a criticism on the literary pro
ductions of one CORNELIUS Mairums, Esq., who
has written much lately for Magazines, &c. It sums
his pretensions by liming that he is a "humbug," and
sayingbe is "small beer." Mr. Iklarimws was once
the editor of a Magazine called "Arcturus," and even
Professor 'INGRAHAM and his DA:cm:a FEATHER
have not been 'more perseveringly puffed and blown
about than this Mr. MarnEws. All would not do,
however—he has gone down, anti has thus furnished
another gratifying evidence that mere "paffinz," if he
has no merit, will nut ke:p a writer up.. Mr. M. thinks
hehas immoralized himself by the portrayment of po
litical wire-working and intrigue, in a novel called
"PutTer Hopkins," upon the authorship of which he
seems disposed chiefly to rest his fume. It is beyond
question one of the most dull and ridiculous productions
ever issued from the press, and botraysatotal ignorance
Of the political characters and manoeuvres of which he
has attempted a caricature. From the manner in which
Mr. M's last publication was received, we presume his
literary aspiraiions are dead and buried. It is a plea
sant t4ing to note the. extinction of humbugs, and there
fore wc hat whet we hope is the close of
Mr. Matliet is . literary career.
MtatDF.R.—The Sunbury Gazette states that on
Monday night last, as three young. men of the place
were out gunning. and were crossing a form occupied
by William and Robert Hunter, about three miles from
the borough, they were assaulted by the Hunters and
a John Devaney with clubs and stones, and John Vand
ling, a son of Peter Vandling, was so beaten ovet the
bead with his gun which had been taken out of his
hands, that he died in about twj hours. Oac of the
Hunters commenced the assault on the pretence that
the party was one with whom he had a previous dispute,
and their denial would not satisfy hint. Vandling was
a young man of 2:2 years of age, and of a very amiable
disposition. The perpetrators of the act were arrested
and committed to
Cot. JUIINt'ON ty NEw YORK.—This veteran sol
dier and democrat presided at a iiepeal meeting in
New York. on last Friday evening. and delivered an
address whi.th was received with rapturous applause
by alarge audience. He left on Saturday for Newark,
N. J., where preparations were made to give him a pub
lic reception
mpttrsostarxr OF Dbl.:rt.—Tito citizens of Boston
held an immense wee:Mg on Thursday evening to ex
press their indignation at the tyrannical conduct of the
authorities of Rhode Hand in the arrest and imprison
ment of Tilos. W. Dunn. The meeting was address
ed by a number of able sl . tealiers, and adopting a series
ofappropriale and potrintic resolutions, adjourned with
threechaecs far T. W. Dorr, and three times three for
Gov. Morton.
Rosanna Keen, th•r colored girl who poisoned
Mr. Seeley, of Bridgeton, N. . 1.. and whnae execution
was to have taken phwe on Friday last, has been re

The sigiing of her eprieve was nearly the last official
act performed by the Governor.
AN la POSTER. Pole, who calls hinuclf P. Nu
has been perambulating the country, soliciting
uid, and exhibiting letters purporting to be written by
Abbot Lawrence and Robert G. Shaw ; of Boston.—
These gentlemen both deny all knowledge of Nayarit'.
hi, and of the letters which he exhibits.
Ftaxs IN CAN ADA.—On the 5:61hu1t., a range of
five of the best buildings in Si. Catharines, was destroy
ed by fire. The houses were stuated between May's
Hotel and Henegan's tavern. On Wednesday week,
between five and six o'clock, the church of St Anne
des Plaines, in the Seigniory uf Tea reboune, near Mon
treal, was entirely destroyed by tire. Everything in
the church was destroyed with it.
MARS:IA BERTRAND arrived in Baltimore on Sa
turday at, and was received by the Mayor and a com
mittee of French citizens. The Sun says that on Sun
' day morning he attended the Cathedral with his suite,
. and listened to an eloquent sermon from the Rev. Mr.
Coakrey, previous to which grand high mass was per
formed, accompanied by the excellent sin4ing of the
choir. lie retitcd from the Cathedral in company
with Jerome Napoleon Bonaparte. At two o'clock in
the afternoon he was waited on ut Barmon's by the
French citizens in a body and received their respects,
appearing highly delighted with their visit.
At 12 o'clock on Monday he received a largo num
ber of the citizens who , were anxious to pay their re
spects to the distinguished stranger.
A BANKING BASIS.—A fellow named Stir-r, "nun
his credit" recently at New Haven. for some weeks,
mainly on th:! strength of a mahogany box, purporting
to be full of ama!th, sealed and deposited in the Caul
ty bank. On Thursday it was unsealed and soh.mnly
opened in the presence of the authorities. It was found
to contain smile old newspapers, three cents, and half
of a late Morning Courier! So says that paper.
Louis Gazette of the 30th, gives tho following account
of the robberies and forgeries committed by a Post
Master in the State of Missouri:
Imporlane Robber/.—lmportant losses nil the
mail route between Fayette, and Liberty, here taken
place recently. On Friday e /ening the 30th, Thornton
11. Freeman, P. M at Carrolton, was arrested in his
office, bj the Marshal of the State, in conjunction with
the agents of the General l'o*t Office.
The papers and testimony on which this arrest was
made, clearly show the villany of Freeman, who has
committed forgeries without number, and stole without
reserve. His escape, which occurred on Saturday,
and for which none are blameable. is greatly to be la
mented, and wo hope will not be permanent, as a re
ward of $l5O is offered, $lOO of which is from the
private pockets of Col. NlcHatton, one of the agents,
and Mr. Birch, the Marshal.
The Marshal has secured, we are informed, $3,300,
and there are $2,500 yet m doubt. Of the RIM.; actual
ly stolen, in six r.bberies and eight or ten forgeries,
$6OO falls upon Woods, Christy & Co., of St. Louis,
who adopted unusual precautions, and whose loss we
deeply regret;—s4Go upon Mr. Ritchie, oldie Rich
mond Enquirer, and the balance is divided between the
numerous citizens of Liberty and the Platte country.
The remaining sum, not accounted for, is divided be
tween a foreigner in the upper country, an officer et
the Garrison, an i Dr. Mitchell, the Receiver at Fay
REPEAT..-Mr. T. D. Masme, at a late Repeal meet
ing in Roxbury, Marls., summed up, in the following
brief and pithy sentence, the advantag,es Ireland would
realize from Repeal:
"Give to Ireland a legislature, a local and responsi
ble judiciary. a free church, and within five years the
entire condition of the country will be changed. The
products of the soil will be more than doubled, manu
factures will bein a still greater proportion; education
of the masses will be provided for by those whu will
feel the necessity for it, and sectarian animosity, now
so rancorous, will be extirpated as if by magic. These
are the vast consequences which must follow the repeal
of the present unjust and unequal union; and they ought
to be reached, whether England sinks to a second rate
power at not. When England employs her present im
mense political pots er fur the benefits of the masses of
mankind, it will be time enough for those who live un
der other ; , cerement; to concern themselves about her
loss of it."
The Baitua ?tilt record 4 the following instance of that
generosity and benevolence, which have always char
acterise the song of the ocean:—
"Tuesday, the lust day of the month, being pay day
on hoard the .ret-r-nue cutter Hamilton. Capt Sturgis
stated to his crew that the loss of the U. S. schooner
Grampus having been confirmed, it was rendered cer
tain that many widows and orphans would he left in
i destitute circumstances as a consequence of the calam
ity,aud would therefore be peculiarly dcsoi ving of the
sympathies of the sailors. To give an opportunity to.
a!I on board to make such a contribution for the reiief of
the unfortunate persons as their feelings might prompt,
be had prepared a subscription paper to which those
who saw fit might put their names, with the sums they
could afford to give. The paper was then circulated.
among the crew. and was signed by every man on board
from the commander downward—all giving liberally,
aceoading tothei r circumstances. The money,amounted
to a oonsidexable sum. was collected an the spot, and
before-his has been forwarded to those for whose re
lief:it-was intended. We .ronsider the circumstance
highly honorable to the crew of the Hamilton and their
warm hearted commander, and trust the example will
not be wjthout as influence in otherquartersond among
rhose who ate more able to tol generous."
We ten gratified to find, from Timmons indicatkets
that the mistaken impresion on the minds of many,
that Mr. Buchantuesdeserred popularity is confined to
l'ennsyliria, is fastgiving place to truth. In plea
of the fact that Mr Buchanun's eminent public services
and commanding stitesmanship ore appreciated in oth
er states, as well tut nur own, we may mention, that
a democratic meeting was recently held in Clarke Coun
ty, Virginia, at which resolutions were enthusEistically
adopted, declaring Mr BUCHANAN as its first choice
for the Presidency, and RICHARD M. JOHNSON for
Vice President. That would constitute a "team"
impossible to beat in Pennsylvania, or, we verily be-
Neve, in the Union. Why ought not counsels of wis
dom prevail in the National Convention? Whilst the
friends of the other candidates have worked their fee
lings into a state of feverish excitement, fraught with
imminent peril to our success in the coming campaign
the name of BUCHANAN would at once harmonize ex
isting difficulties, and the agitated waves would be
awed into tranquility. We record it as our deliberate
conviction that JAMES BUCHANAN is the most avail
able, as he is also confessedly among the most able and
patriotic of the competitors for the Democratic nomi
nation. In support of his pretensions, we shall here
after publish copious extra.:ts from the public rapers,
an,l sock to enforce them by comments of our own.—

The examination in relation to the death or Eieut
Wyche was brsught to close last evenin;. The pro
ceediz,gs attic, committee on Thursday will be found
on our first page. Yesterday Thomas B Coolidge, Esq,
who boards at the Exchanp.. Coffee. House, .estified
that the deceased was engaged with him. and others
till a quarter before two, and that he was not then
drunk. but he had drank a glass of beer during the
evening. When the witness was prepttriog to go to
bed, the deceased proposed to go out, and would be
back in an hour, but witness remonstrated.
Amos Pearson, porter of the Exchange, testified that
the deceased, at half past two, or a little after, left the
house, sayins , that be was going to take a little walk,
and would he hack in a short time. Ile did nut per
ceive upon hirn any signs of intoxication.
Charles Manley, of Portland. saw the deceased at
the Exchange (rein ten till half-past one, and w:t3 sure
that there was nothing in the appearance, &e. indica
tive of intoxication.
Li.'ut Parker was re-callod and expres3ed an opin
ion, based unauthentic information, that the deceased
was not in possession of any largeamount of money on
tire night precedinghis death.
Dr. Perkins who was a witness before the inquest,
was also examined, but his evidence did not come
down to a later hour than 10 o'clock. lle, however,
assigned a medical reason why the deceased refused to
drink during the day and evening when invited.
With Dr. P. the investigation closed, and the corn.
mittee proceeded to deliberate on their report, which
will probably be submi , ted to thecommon council on
M.inday evening. It will undoubtedly e,:puess a strong
opinion against the manner in which the jury of inquest
was made. up. On this point it will he observed, by a
reference to the evidence on the first page, that here is
a material difference between Col. Pratt, the coroner,
and M. Stratton, the officer who butu.noned the jury.

On Wednesday evening we r; published an anecdote
of a dog, that perceiving its little mistress to fill into
the water, sprangin and brought her to the shtire, but
being unable fully to extricate her, placed her where
she could sustain herself, and then scrambled ashore—
dragged us it were a young girl , whom he met, to the
spot, and with her assistance drew his little friend nut
of the water; having done which, he.jumped again into
the riser to pick up and bring back her bonnet that
had floated off.
This reasoning., faithful—brute? it is added, had
been rescued by the father of the child he soled from
the hands of those human brutes, called dog-killers.

When you rise in the morning form a resolution to
make the day a happy one to a fellow -creature. It is
easily done: a left off garment to the man who needs
it, a kind word to the sorrowful, an encouraging expres
sion to the striving trifles in themselves light as air
will do it, at least for the twenty-four hours; and if you
ate young depend upon it, it will tell when you are old;
and if you are old, rest assured it will send you gently
and happily down the stream of human time to eterni

result. You send one person, only one, happily through
the day; that is 365 in the course of the year, and sup
posing you live forty years only after you commence

The science of ek.cLricity has discoveted thateer
tan substances are not affected by the elecztic fluid;
they are therefore called non-conduclors. Alcohol
is anon-conductor.
I: It does not conduct wealth into a nien's pocket.
No man was ever in (het the richer for drinking it, al
' though he might be in imagination.
2: It conducts no happiness to a man's family. No
wife or child was ever the happier for tho uae which
the husbacd or father made of it.
3: It conducts no respectability to a man's charac
ter. No man waa ever more really respectable for be
ino-' a moderate drinker, a tippler, or a drunkard.
4: It conducts nu good to body or mind, when used
as a beverage. Nu man wad ever more real healthy,
or strong, or wise, or prudent, from the use of it.
5: It cimducts not one good thing into the communi
ty. There are many tipplers and drunkards in the
land. Is the nation anymore respected, wealthy, vir
tuous or prosperons on this account 1 Double the
number of each, and would it be any advantage to the
nation 1
6: Alcohol conducts no principle of virtue or piety
into the heart. Was it ever known, that either the
selling or drinking of alcohol produced any real change
in a man's character or principles for the better.
Bat alcohol bas conducted away millions of- money,
and an untold amount of happiness and charuLter: it
has destroyed, in hundreds of thousands of instances,
health, reason, conscience—all ; all the poor deluded
man had, and has turned him amt into the world, poor,
diseased wretched, vile, polluted, disgusting, lost,
destroyed. Such have been, still are, and ever will be,
the efibcts ofalcohol, so long us it shall be continued in ;
use as a beverage ! Awl yet how men are wedded to !
its use, under one or another eisguise ! How they will
shut their eyes and ears, and harden their hearts ngai ta.t
the influence of facts—the daily lessons of experience.
How they will rush by thousands, to destruction, along
the very path, which they have always seen, ass far as'
their vision has traced it, crowded with the lost, nod
from which they have continually heard the cry of '
guilt, remorse and shame—the sound of weeping and
wailing, and gnashing of teeth.
Of what heraldry has our country to boast. Even

Sir Robert Peel's arms are, nine arrows with a flying

dressed in the extremes of military frippery. Ile has

A Cincinnati correspondent of the Newark Morn
ing Post, rives the following description of a new in
vention. We cannot say that we have a clear idea of
the machine he describes, but perhaps some of our
readers more versed in mechanical matters, may:
"I was recently invited to witness the operation of
the model of a machine (for boat it could not be cal
led,) to navigate our inland waters. The inventor is
a young mat] of this place, and as is usual in such ca
ses, is very enthusiastic in his expectations of its capa
bilities and powers. He says, that the passage hence
to Pittsburgh, (500 miles) can easily be performed by
day-light. ft may very properly be denominated a
floating railroad—or a rail road which lays its own
track, and takes it up again when the passage over it
has been made. It may be thus described; a series of
oblong, air and water tight sectior s of any ty (piked
length, breadth, and depth are firmly secured side by
side, upon an endless chain: this chain is distended to
its utmost, upon a series of cast iron wheels, support
ed by shafts, upon a suitable frame work. These
wheels are put into motion, by the means of the steam
engine. The frame work with its engine boilers nod
wheels, may be called the locomotive; the chain, with
its floating power of its water tight sections, the rail
road. When it is placed upon the water, and the en
gines are put in motion, the endless chain (or railt mid)
' traverses the surface of the paddles or wheels, by
which the sections upon the chain, in succession, are
curried fore . ard and enters the water, each doing its ,
part in supporting the whole fabric, and are a g ain ta
ken up in theirendless round at the stern wheel. Ono
very novel characteristic of this machine is, its adap
tation to either water or lands so that it need not be re,
Larded by sand bars or low Water. This is obvious
when it is observed, that the floats or sections, during
the time they are beneath the frame work, (and of
course supporting the whole) do not advance at all, but
remain stationary, while the wheels pass over them;
when they leave the water or land, however, they go
rapidly forward to redeem their places on the forward
part of the craft, and to bear up the structure. Upon
the frame work which supports the engine, &e., and
above the chain and floats, the cabin for the accommo•
dation of passengers is to be created. That this thing
will move rapidly through or over the water I have ne
doubt, but think the eathusiastic inventor has over ess
timated its powers, or set ton low an estimate upon the
resistanre it will meet with from the element through
which it is to p ass ,
