[Fur The 1'rr-n.J THE UNITED jiTATES MINT. Philadelphia was witli great propriety chosen as the National Capitol of this Confederacy during the most eventful and critical period of its existence. Here the Continental Congress met, here the Declaration of Inilejiendenco wuh signed, here tho deliberations of the trying period of th<-Revolutionary struggle wore held, and this city,too, was for a considerable period the seat of government after the formation of the Federal Constitution. At present, altliovigh it possesses .several institutions of a national character where important functions of the General Government are discharged, the U. S. Mint is perhaps the only relic, pioperly speaking, of its position us the National Capitol. There are various other Mints, it is true , in other portions of tho country, but tliej arc branches, and under the general direction, ot tho Director of the Mint located in this city, which bears to them all the character of a luirent institut...

Jfowj thp Democratic party is simply tho representative of a school of opinion, and its creed is given it uy thoso who founded, nnd have, subsequently supported it. Tlio great men who have spoken and acted for it, and whose names will remain stamped prominently upon tho history of tho country, have been men of strong, clear and sound views of our system of government, and of the rules upon which its administration should proceed. Our party is the product of their efforts; tlio instrument for accomplishing the ends they proposed, and it remains a monument of their sngacity, foresight and patriotism. They held that ovor-action in government was a great evil—the most difficult to be guarded agafnst, and therefore the most dangerous—and that both within and without the Constitution poworftjtf guards against it were required. Provorbfal language convoys the idea in declaring that " the world is governed too much," and that " that government is best Which governs least; " and philosop...

ENGLAND AND IIINDOSTAN A few weeks ago, England was startled by tho intelligence that an extensive revolt in the Indian army had occurred, and that the continuance, tho very existence of British sway in Hindostan was in imminent peril. Pithily, but forcibly enough, did a London journal thus describe tho crisis :—<< Our house in India is on tire. We are not insured. To lose that house would be to lose power, prestige, and character—to descend in the rank of nations, and take a position more in accordance.with our size on the map of Europe than with the greatness of our past glory and present ambition. The fire'must bo extinguished at any cost. All ordinary considerations give way before the greatness and suddenness of the danger."' Another journal, arguing that British troops should be sent to India without delay—by the overland route, if necessaryadds : " It. will be time to- inquire into the causes of the mutiny by-and-bye; wo do not speculate how a fire origi...

STATE POLITICS THE CANVASS FOR GOVERNOR, In the raidst of tho general calm which has settled upon the political waters, tho canvass for the election of another Chief Magistrate of Pennsylvania can hardly bo called a contest. Each of the throe great parties has nominated its candidate. The Democrats have nominated William P. Paokck, the Americans Isaac Hazlehurst, of Philadelphia, and the Republicans David Wilmot, of Bradford County. If there is any contest, it will be between General Packer and Judge Wilmot. But there is really no issue upon which the Democratic candidate can be successfully opposed. He is the representative of a conservative and harmonizing sentiment—that which triumphed a year ago, while Judge Wilmoi is the embodiment of an element against which, whatever may have been the fact in 1856, there is an almost unanimous protest, so far as public opinion can be estimated or ascertained. Besides, General Packer is in every sense a .Pennsylvania!) of the good old ...

THE PRESIDENT AT BEDFORD. Bedford Springs has always been the favorite summer resort of Mr. Buchanan. Long ago, when lie was a leading lawyer at the Lancaster bar, Bedford was a resting-place from his labors, tho attraction to the able men of his profession throughout this Stato and Maryland, and the centre of fashion. It was a common event to find at that delightful Spa most of the great intellects of Pennsylvania. Mr. Buchanan has since rarely omitted his annual visit to Bedford, unless when absent, in foreign countries. Though most of his old-time friends have been called hence, lie will bo heartily welcomed by their sons and their daughters. SPECIAL NOTICE. While the 'political department of The Pbess will he entirely under our own control, its columns uill be open to tho discussion of all subjects of local interest and general State policy, so tbut all sides may have a hearing.

CORRESPONDENCE LETTER FROM WASHINGTON. [Correspondence of The PreBa ] Wasiiinotoh, July 31,1857. The tariff act passod by Congress at Us recent session, went into operation on tho 1st instant. So far, it has justified tho predictions of those who favored a reduetion of dutios on imparts. Thure have been no serious complaints of its provisions, nor has thoro boen any fulling off in the revenue. On tho contrary, tho receipts at the various custom houses Iibyo been very large. In Boston, and I imagine the fiarno is tho case with othor seaboard olties, the importations last week doubled those for the like period of the last year. Many of tho supportors of that act advocate a still greater reduetion, but the justice and good senso of such a measure will better nppoar by the receipts for October and November Great quantities of merchandize brought into tho country prior to tlio 1st, wore kopt in tlio bonded warehouses, so that they might be taken out at tho reduced rotes, and tho pr...

CANAL COMMISSIONER. Hon. Nihrod Strickland, the Democratic candidate, is one of those rare men, whose nomination to office reflects credit upon the people. Though at all times a decided partian, yet in a community like that of Chester county, where he resides, lie has sustained through a long life the reputation of an honest, upright, and exemplary citizen. We only regret that the office of Canal Commissioner is not, at this day, equal to his large deservings. THE OCTOBER ELECTION. The City of Philadelphia, at the next election, elect seventeen members of Assembly, and two Senators. This number will probably be sufficient to determine the political complexion of the next legislature, whether it is Democratic or Republican.
