The general and too com mon use of ardent spirits, is an acknowledged and deplorable evil ; but there are many who in dulge in its use, w ho are among our most worthy, honest and valuable citizena. We have known the Judges of this Court, some of them for the Isst 12 or 13 years, and during all that time, in session here or elsewhere, we have never heard aught against their integrity; or their ability to discbarge their duties questioned. The editors will probably deny they ever intended any thing of tbe kind, but they should reflect, that these indirect and loose attacks, on men occupying the highest judicial station, are calculated to inflict a greater injury on the judicial system, than the most violent attarka of tbe ultra radicals, with whom our iriends of tbe Miltonian were ia tbe babit of finding so much fault. E7" StatzConvzntiom In another column, our readers will And a full account of tbe pro ceedings of tbe convention held at Harrisburg on the 4th inst. There waa, as was eipected, con siderable excitement in the convention. Tbe friends of Mr. Buchanan were largely in tbe ma jority. The mentis of Mr. I'altas, aware or this. endeavored to have the delegates I rum each t on gressional district to appoint delegates to the Baltimore Convention, with instructions to sup port Mr. Buchanan. ' This propoai'ioti. which resulted in giving some of the friends of Mr. Dal las a chance of being sent a delegates, caused eonaiderable debate. The matter, however, was afterwards amicably arranged. - Mr. Wilmol was present, and made a speech, in which ha stated soma wholesome, though to some, unpalatable truths, in relation , to bis proviso in regard to slavery in any new territory to be acquired. He, stated that wben the proviso passed a large por tion of the demociatic tneaibers of Congress vo ted with bim in its favor, and if he was to be resd out of tbe party, a large portion of the de mocracy would have to go with him. (JTb treaty has not yet been finally dis posed of. Its ratification ia, however, now deemed certain, and will take place in a day or two, at tbe farthest.

(O Some of the Iallas papers, we observe, ezult a good deal in having ont-generalled Ihe frienda of Mr. Buchanan, at tbe late convention, in selecting delegates. 07" Ta Tscatt wns Mksioo, which the Se nate haa bad before them for Ihe week past, will, it is generally believed, bs ratified by that body, with the exception of a number of amendments ia relation to recognising previous grants ol land, fcc, to individuals. The Senate , will not liks to reject the treaty, (hough a laigs majority are opposed to (he manner in which it was negotia ted by Mr. Trist, who acted ia tbe matter with out authority. It is said that but four democra tic Senators wtllopposs it, viz: Benton, Breeze, Atchison, and Col. Davis. Gen. Houston, also opposed, will be absent.

The Committee of Re. cent ion followed, and next came the Committee ol the House of Ueproeontstivre. The procession passed along Rroad st, and down Walnut, the vast concourse) of spectator occupying the sidewalks and doorstep, main taining their position with a respectful silence. As soon as the head of the procession entered the gste on Wslnut street, the band commerw ced plating a solemn dirge, by Beethoven, in which performance a gong accompaniment was very erTec'ive. When the coffin hsd reached the line of military, the order to prtsent arms ass g.tven. The coffin is very nest and plain. Il is msde of metal, perfectly air-light, with a flat top, in accordance with the style adopted in the Ess tern Slates. It is covered with blue k velv-'t, with silver bullion s round the upper edge.
