Tho people will ratify it willi a triumphant majority. between the mature ages of five, and four teen ! We believe Mr. J. makes no men tion in his "Witness" of this prodigious friend of his, but this must certainly detract from disreputation as a Democratic prophet. Ho ought to havo seen that when the term "Democratic" camo to bo appropriated by a party of spoilsmen, somosuch foundling as this Polk would naturally spring up ns their standard-bearer, nnd claitnall sorts of intima cy with him. Ho should havo looked for ward with far-seeing oyo to tho very crisis which has now arrived, and there would ho havo discoved his "supporter" in pantnlclts, waiting to bocomo n Democrat Demigod, thrown up on thn froth of a project begotten in selfishness nnd prosecuted in recklessness; having for its object the enriching of despe radoes, nnd tho extension of sin. A "supporter" of Mr. Jefferson ! Tho old cant of Locofocoism, witli whom it is ac counted mnro to havo crawled round Jcffer ferson or Jackson in search of an office, than to ho a (rue and consistent democrat. The paragraph in question was doubtless copied from some Loco book oj forms, and tho editor was too careless or stupid to "vary tho form to suit tho case." It reminds us of a worthy justico of our acquaintance who in administering an oath to a witness always read from the Statuto thus ; "you solemnly swoar (or affirm as the case may bo") &c. final ittue shall be made up, and tht aUtrnatht Mi tlncthj vreitnted tothtfrtt Statu, tithtr to admit Ttxai into the Union, or to jirouid ptactatily and calmly to arrange tht ttrmt of a dissolution of tht Union." Such nro tho grounds on which tho "I'olk and Dallas" ticket is lupporled nt thn South. Can it be possihlo that a single Northern Slato will lend its aid or countenance to so foul a plot I Journal.

If the Albany Argus is not very far out of tho way, tho aforesaid Polk did not conde scend to appear upon this sublunary sphere until about tho year 1795.

How deeply on the heart of Mr. Jefferson must iho feeling of graiiludo been impressed, at tho enegctic and efficient sup poit received fiom tho futuio Presiduni Polk Adjournment op Congress. The two Houses of Congress adjourned in conformity with their joint resolution previously passed, at 12 o'clock, noon, on tho 17th. Much im portant business, which domnr.dcd tho atten tion of Congress, remains unfinished, and very littlo of any importance to tlio Nation lias been done, with tho exception of the more passing of iho Appropriation Bills. iVlthough serious inconvenience will be suf fered by tho public from tho neglect and in ability oftbe two Houses to bring their labors on somo of tho important subjects which were brought before them to maturity, tho general feeling will be one of gratitude, that matters aro no worse.

Saturday's Pcnnsylvanian contained what purported to ho tlio proceedings of a lato Loco meeting nt Harrisburg to ratify tho nomination of Polk and Dallas.

In tho country, among tho farmers, the Locos aro obliged to meet the Tariff issue. but doos the Pcnnsylvanian want to dodge it? It would not do for its Free Trade al lies of tho South to seo a resolution approv ing of a vote, which thoy denounced as givon in support of an iniquitous Tarifi. Tho Harrisburg resolution says tho Tariff ques tion is settled; this resolution was reported by tho unscrupulous editor oftbe Union, and bears on its face so decidedly tho impress of a lio that the Ponnsylvanian thinks it advis able not to copy it !

Let us hoar what tho Southern Locofocos say in relation to Mr. Clay's opinions on tho Tariff. A largo meeting was lately held in Edgefield (Calhoun's) District, at which they declared that 'Mr. Clay's first effort in tho Senile of the V. Slates was in favor of Internal Improvement, nnd his first great speech made on his second election to thai body, n.s early na 1609, wns in favor of n Protective! Tariff; which won him tho title of 'Father of tho Amcricnu system.' His subsequent career has pro ved his consistency upon nil these points, on which, and ninny olbcrs of import, Iho Democracy of thu whole country aro at issue with him. Shall such a man, professing such principles, bo rnado Picdcnt of Iho United Stales? Let tho Democracy of tho coun try, from Louisiana, in one universal acclamation re spond, Never I !" luture Congress will hare to conform, be our action now ichat it may.

If he shall be, we ehnll settb: llio question with more harmony nnd equity, nnd with abetter chance for alnbdily, than at tho present timo; if not, nil that wo may do now, may soon bo reversed. Seeing this, and that nil weilo now, if wo do nny thin; must be imperfect and provisional, I very much doubt ihe policy of nttempling lo settle Iho Tariff question nt the present session. I am in favor of dicustnn, but doubt the practicability, at this tune, of judicious and stable legislation." During tho same debate, Mr. Colquitt of Georgia, on the 10th April last, thus con firmed the position occupied by Mr. Benton, From the Lc Roy Gazette. Wool.

Under tho existing law, which imposes a duly of 30 per cent., and 3 cents a pound on foreign wool, tho interests of tub Farmers aro adequately protected. But James K.

The account says that "After the preamble and resolutions wero read, Col.

Ho dwelt with great force and earnestness upon the im portance of ihe immediate acquisition of Texas aa a measure of national defence, and oxpo-ed tho deceit ful position of Lord Aberdeen and tho llritish govern ment on the subject.

News has reached Boston by way of Hal ifax and the Bermudas of an action at Tahiti between a British frigate and three French ships of war, which resulted in tho .sinking of tho former. Tho Boston Daily Adv. says : As the story is without date, wc cannot tell whether or riot it may have been discred ited by advices already received hero ; but although it came from Panama by a rather circuitous course, it seems lo resl on gocr authority. The llarbadoes Globe says: Our readers mav re member, that we already informed them of iho' un justifiable proceedings of the French Admiral in iho Pacific, Dti Petit Thouars, towards the Uuecu of Otaheitc, now called Tabati. The conduct of this valiant Admiral (against a defenceless woman) has been disavowed by iho French King, Mimicri. nnd Chamber of Deputies, nnd Admiral Ilamnnhn tent out to supercede him in the Pacific. Meantime tho la-l Island Steamer brings tho astonishing intelli gence, received from Tahati by way of Panama, that (lueen Pomare having laken refuge on board thu Hrnish frigate Dublin, the French Admiral procdcd thither, and peremptorily demanded the surrender of the Queen's person from tho British Captain This was of course refused, high words arose between the French Admiral nnd F.nghsh Captain, nnd the firm r left for bis own vessel, furious with indignation. IIo immediately commanded Ihe three large French Mm of War ho bid with linn in the Hay. to cltar for ac tion. They all a-soai'cd the British Frigate with n murderous, sustained and simultaneous tire. The British fought to the last, and sunk with her colon Hying. son's black silk stocking-.

So with democratic' principles! they had from year lo year been patched, by the nddition of new doctrines, to suit tho changes of popular sentiment until nt last no vestigo of what wa9 once called ' democratic' principles remained." Nothing can bo more true. Democracy is any thing and every thing to suit tho times. One thing at tho North, another at tho South, and any thing for the " spoils." In 1824 it was for a prolectivo tariff ("tlio doctrine of Jefferson) and for a national currency. In 1834 it advocated a judicious tariff, and the distribution of tho proceeds of tho public lands among the Stales vide Gen. Jackson's message) and " asked nothing but what was right, and submitted to nothing that was wrong." In 1844 it is anti-tariff, anti-distri-bution, anti a national curroncy. The last flnli'c of democracy is a polL-mell rush for Texas and Oregon, in violation of solemn treaties the honor of the nation, and the richts of a foreign country. In our own Stntn " democracy" POCS a Ston further. It ' " O i violates in addition llio law of Congress re quiring tho Slato to bo districted for tho choico of members of Congress, and denies tho right of tho pcoplo to make tho public improvements which tho necessities of the age imperatively require.
