The Democracy. By a reference to the Legislature news , our readers will see that the present Loco Foco Administration are determined not to allow the people to elect their own officers. The new Constitution was adopted simply because it took from the Executive his patronage, and gave back into the hands of the people, that of which they had been despoiled. In disrobing him of his patronage, it destroyed the opportunity of a dishonest Govenor, for appointing dishonest underlings, and keeping them io, dispitc ol the wishes oi the people;-— and a petty tyrant like Jemmy Clarke can be dismissed if the people have the power in their hands. The new Constitution made provision that the people could so take the matter into their hands. We advocated and voted for the amendments because, it placed in the hands of the people, what ol right belonged there; and that we call democracy. But what do the people see now from that party claiming to be democratic—exclusivel y democratic!—they ...

»Wr. Stevens &, the Committee In another colum will be fjund a correspondence between T. Stevens Eiq., and his inquisitorial committee. We ask for it a careful perusal. They will discover in Mr. itevens' reply, wh y he is not wanted in the house. They fear his presence. They know that they cannot riot on unchecked in their career ol madness, if he is in his seat; and they purpose prolonging the investigation unconstitational as it is, until the session is adjourned, and thus rob Adams county o* her representation. A more unholy act of usurpation was never dreamed of. Without any law to support their course, without any precedent, they refuse a mem ber a seat whom they admit "vas legally elected, and returned. They contend that he has forfeited his seat, if so, why did they not order a new election? If hy not give the people a chance to be represented. No no.' They give the lie t" their own words—they do not considr6 the [scat vacated, if they did, they would order an...

Loco Foco Honesty. When the bill for the election ol canal commissioners was under discussion, Mr. Hopkins and some other of the Loco Focos, said they would be willing to give the people an "opportunity to vote upon the proposition to elect said board. After the the bill was lost, an amendment ot that kind was offered, when the Locos called the previous question, cutting all amendments off; and Hopkins, and the others voted for it. Thus refusing to give the people even a chance to say. whether they consider themselves competent to elect canal commissioners. Thus Porter has drilled his slaves, and they have agreed to let the appointment remain in the hands of one man; and he not a pattern of honesty or intelligence.

?£&itovi«(l SummaiH The last state lone of $200,000 has been taken by five different banks, and one individual who took $700,000. Iron Steamboats have succeeded so well, that they now talk of building houses of that material in England. A man by the name of Fairchild, was sent to prison for stealing a cow in Connecticut- The same day he beat hisbrains out against the walls of his cell. Another of the Braganza mutineers lias been tried and found guilty; but was recommended to Mercy. The latest news from the Florida war says, that the Indians are still playing havoc there, burning, stealing and killing. Occasionally they are chased off by some of our patriotic troops. How long will i( be before this war will be ended. It is said that the Messrs Price, ol Long Island, have cleared $230,000 on the inoius multic.iulis. A good p. ice for speculation.

The mammoth Perhaps most of our readers have read and account of the bones of a Mastedon having been found in Craword county, O. some time during last summer. Wc have been requested to state to the citizens of this county, that these monstrous bones will be in our town for exhibition, on Friday and Saturday next. The skeleton, we learn, is much more perfect than that exhibited at the Philadelphia Museum. The citizens then of our town and county, who wish to look at them can have an opportunity. When, where . and how, this immense structure of animal life existed, it has proven beyond the power of history or tradition to tell. Its bones, to which the bones of the elephant are like the bones of pigmies, prove clearly that it did once move amid the forests of this hemisphere. It is believed that race has long since become ex tine t. Its bones alane have defied decay, as it were to tell of the mi ghty things of ancient days. The head is entirel y per. feet, weighs 237 pounds. Ac...

The Veto Gov. 1'orter, as it anxious to cmulale the example of Ritner, has vetoed a little omnibusjof local appropriations. Ritnct was a very bad man, so said Porter and his vassals, because he dared to set up bis judgment against the legislative wisdom. Yet Mr Porter has done the same twice in about four moths. Why do not some of Porters old dupes complain now . They were wont to scold wonderfully at such things a year ago. The veto shall appear next week.;' The "Advocate" thinks it has got flea its ear. We have never commenced an attack upon any of the numerous writers for that print; but when forced into the arena, we like to lay about us right lustily —and they generally quit us satisfied that there are blows to take as well as give-It wishes to see our history.

The friends of Mr. Stevens contending that the whole course was a palpable violation of the Constitution, and we believe every one refused to act on said committee. On Monday in the Senate, a resolution was passed calling on the canal commissioners for information respecting claims on Col. Rail Road, certain abuses being alleged to exist.

Ma. STEVENS AND THE INQUISl-TORIftL COMMITTEE. • Wc invite the attention ol our readers to the following correspondence between the inquisitorial Committee, appointed by the Loco Foco House of Representatives who refused to allow him his constitutional 'Rights,' by depriving hi in ol a seat in that body. We would suppose that when the inquisitors read his repl y to their call of attendance, that the blush of shame must have mantled their cheeks at the conviction of their own ignorance, if any of the Loco Focos are susceptible of such an emotion, and that they must have felt that they are engaged in a contemptible as well as a treasonable proceeding.—But we hope they will go on in their course; is it too late for them to retreat, and the more they trample upon the Constitution, the more emphatic will be the condemnation of the people, whose rights and liberties arc thus outraged, by petty tyrants, and malignant usurpers.—Har.

The experience of the past year has confirmed in the minds of the more reflecting and sagacious of the Whig party that a vacuum exists in the periodical press of the country, in which should be combined the productions of cur great statesmen on literary and scientific subjects, and those of the eminent literary geniuses of which the United States can boast so ample a share, on the various subjects that present themselves to a sound and vigorous intellect.
