Buchanan in Virginia! Extract of a Utter to the editor of the Intelligencer, dated, Fairfax conBTT, (Va.,) April 4, 1848. It may not be uninteresting to your readers to be informed of the sentiments of the "Mother of Presidents " in regard to .the coming campaign. Old Virginia, it is true, has not yet, for prudential reasons, made any public demonstration, from which the Democracyfof other 8tates can deduco her preference of any particular candidate, although she has left nothing to conjecture a> to the spirit with which she will enter the contest, when the hour of trial shall come. She will present to the enemy, Whenever he may be pleased to unfurl his Sag, an undivided front, and true to her motto, " lie temper tyrannlt," 'she will know no reit until victory perohos on the banner of Democracy. d But this you have already loarnod, from tho published proceedings of her late State Convention, and hor past history Is a sufllolent guarantee that •ho will nobly rmlnom tho pledg...

Attack on the Adjutant General. Mr. Johnson, the Federal member of our State Senate from Erie county, recently delivered himself of a bitter diatribe against Gen. Bowman of the Bedford Gazette, who holds the office of Adjutant General of Pennsylvania. The ground-work of the attack was a motion made by Senator* Small of Philadelphia, to increase the salary of the Adjutant General from three to six hundred dollars per annum, when Mr. Johnson is reported to have said: " That he was opposed to paving this officer the first cent of salary. He would never,vote to remunerate an officerwho: had advocated the justice of the present war with Mexico. In that gentleman ' s annual report, he makes direct reference to this subject, and characterizes those who disavow sentiments similar to those he entertained as treasohable at heart. He would cast back the reproach upon the vile slanderer, and raise his voice against the division of the bill. VI r. J's. remarks were particularly severe, and...

Genuine Democracy. We place but a low estimate on that man's Democracy, who, in every collateral issue, - is found acting with our opponents. In the bosom of the real Democrat there is a vital principle which always sympathises with the mass: which ]fraternizes with the many as- distinguished from the few. There are many very good Democrats theoretically, who are very bad ones constitutionally. It amounts to an infirmity with them, that, while their leading principles are sound their leading partialities are all vitiated. They can talk ol Liberty and Equality, by the quantity—but the moment thoy are left to act independent of well defined landmarks, they betray an Instinctive proclivity for Aristocracy, Their views, their feelings, their anticipations, all lean the same way, Tho mini who li truly a Democrat assimilates with tho mass as naturally as wator runs down hill, and ho who Is conscious ol'an Innate tendency towards Aristocratic distinctions mid usages, as till' tingula...

The Taylor Proviso. The famous Wilmot proviso, from present appearances, is not to be permitted 1 to go without a rival. The political world is now to be set agog by a Tatlor proviso, which, il it does not make so much noise as the other, in the eyes of its advocates can scarcely lail to be regarded as of equal importance. Let us explain our meaning. The Whig conferees from the counties of Union, Northumberland and Lycoming—three of the live counties in the 13th Congressional District—met at Muncy, one day last week, and on the 10th ballot appointed Davio Taggaiit, Esq., of Northumberland, delegate to the National Convention, and adopted ^he following resolutions: ResolvedThat the delegate this day elected to represent the 13th District in the National Convention, be instructed to advocate the nomination of Henry Clay, as the Presidential candidate of the Whig party. Resolved, That in case of Mr. Clay ' s declination, the Delegate be instructed to suppprt Gen. Zachary Taylor a...

From the Luzerne Demotrat. HIr. Buchanan. We copy from the Lancaster Intelligencer, an able article on the subject of the nomination of this gentlemen T>y the Baltimore Convention. We earnestly call the attention of our readers to a perusal of it. It shows in our mind most conclusively, the feasibility of his nomination by the Convention. The time for;Pennsylvania to speak out has arrived, ^he now presents to the nation a candidate of whom she is proud, and of whom the nation will be. A man strongly identified with the Democracy of the land—and as strongly identified with the opinions of the great statesmen of the Union, who are, and have been the expounders of the Democratic faith. With Silas Wright, Calhoun, Benton^ Woodbury, M'Duffie, Hayne, Cass, Allen, and others, whose names are household words with the Democratic family.

From the Easton Argus. Letter from Israel Painter. We take great pleasure in laying before our Democratic friends the following letter from the Democratic candidate v for Canal Commissioner. His views upon the Presidency will be cheerfully responded to by his frjends throughout the Commonwealth. - Mount Pleasant, March 22, 1S4S. Gentlemen:—I have the honor to acknowledge* the receipt of your letter informing me of my nomination by the Democratic State Convention as the candidate of tho Democracy of the Commonwealth for Canal Commissioner.

Anecdote of an Emperor. The present Emperor of Austria is represented as scarcely more than half-witted, who, if he lived in the United States, instead of being elevated as a ruler, would stand a much better chance of having bis head shaved, and being bled and blistered, and furnished with a comfortable apartment in some benevolent asylum. He is nominally the bead of the Empire, but in reality a mere tool of Mittehirica. We know an anecdote concerning him, which will serve to shew the extent of his calibre. When the lamented Mbhlmbkru of this State was Minister at Vienna, at their farewell interview, the Emperor, among other grave questions, asked him by what mode of conveyance he expected to return to his native country, The Minister Informed him that he should proceod to London, and thence ombsilc In a government vessel lor the United States. "And what length of timo will It take you to reach homo t",Bskod tho Emporor, The Minister Informed him, "Gracious Heavonl" exclaimed ...

From the Winchester Virginian. Mr. Buchanan at Home! The Lancaster Intelligencer—Extra—has just come to hand, with an interesting account in full of a very large and enthusiastic meeting of the Democracy of that city and county, responding to the nomination of Mr. Buchanan for the Presidency. This is all the more gratifying because it comes from the place of the distinguished Nominee's residence—from which he was five successive times elected to the Congress of the United States, and where he first developed those noble qualities of mind and character, which have rendered him so pre-eminently conspicious and useful upon the grand Arena of the Nation * Abead of Rhode Island.—The provisional government of France issues its proclamations in the name of the sovereign people, and proclaims the right to vote, by secret ballot, to every male citizen over twenty-one years of age. The revolution is justified on the ground that the people are sovereign, and have the right to change thei...

Horrible Accidentresulting from the explosion of Camphine. Two children of Mr. L. S. Bacon, of Leroy, were burned to death a few evenings since by the explosion of a can of camphine or spirit gas. A servant girl, who was also shockingly burned, was in the act of filling a lamp, from a <fan capable of containing about a gallon, with fluid, composed of camphine and alcohol. A lighted lamp stood near the one she was filling, from whence! by spilling, it is supposed the fire was communicated to the can, which exploded, tearing the vessel into fragments and scattering the liquid flame ove r every thing in the room. The unfortunate children stood at the same table, watching the operations of the girl, when they became enveloped in flames, and were literally burned up alive before their screams brought the neighbors to their assistance. Neither of the parents were at home when the occurrence took place. ¦ Mrs. Bacon had been! visiting with her friends a short time, and was on ...

Governor Shunlt's Veto of Four . =¦ Old Banks. . We learn from Harrisburg that Gov. Shunk has vetoed the bills re-chartering not less than four Banks—namely, the Farmers' and Mechanics' Bank of Philadelphia, the Chambersbiirg JSaiitlthe Farmers' Bank of Wayncsburg, and the Cohmlbia Bank and Bridge Company of this county. j We have not yet received a copy of khe veto, but find the following notice in the Harrisburg Democratic Union of Saturday: " The veto message is a well-written document, and will do credit to the head and the heart of the Executive. Public sentiment demands that greater guards and restrictions should be thrown around the banking institutions of the State than we have heretofore had, and .this message will raise the question as to whether charters shall be extended without those restrictions and without any inquiry in regard to the solvency or insolvency of the banks making application for extension of charters. We trust that no effort will'be made to pass th...

DZ7" The Americans in Rome celebrated the birth day of Washington this year by a banquet. A correspondent of the Boston Courier, speaking of the affair, says—"Mr. Cooper, of Pennsylvania, presided on the occasion, and all' the proceedings went off with great enthusiasm. Mr. George S. Hillard, of Boston, made a most eloquent speech, and was followed in an able manner by the Rev. Mr. Hedge. A felicitous poem, abounding with humor and sparkling with wit, was recited by William Story, of Boston. He was followed by Crawford, the sculptor, in a speech that oame from the heart. Mr. Thomas W. Parsons, of Boston being called upon by Mr. Story,-,-proposed the folio iving sentiment : To Liberty !—There is no dearer name To our own country :—And it any land That shines before her on the list of fame, Pretend an earlier title to the grand, The god-like attribute of being free—1C that proud city which o ' erlooks the waves Of* Salamis, hard by Thermopylffi—Or this, whose walls historic Tiber la...

Scene In the U. S. Senate. An amusing incident, though for a moment-likely to be attended with serious consequences, occurred in the D. S. Senate on Friday morning. While Mr. Allen was speaking to his resolutions on the French revolution, in the midst of his harangue, a man suddenly sprung from his position in the gentleman's gallery across to the railing in front of the reporters, and perched himself upon the spread eagle which is suspended over the chair of the Vice President exclaiming at the same moment, " I protest against that man representing the State of Ohio.' ' He was arrested by the Sergeant-at-Arms, and placed in temporary custody. Upon examination he turned out to be a Mr. Price, from Cincinnati and is represented to be a person of respectability and independence, who is suffering under partial derangement

Singular . The French Courier states that among the papers of one of the marshals (since deceased) at the celebration in 1830, was found a sealed package with the following inscription: " To be opened on the occasion of the coming revolution in France." As that event has now taken place, the package has been opened and found to contain the badges worn by the deceased at the procession of 1830, with a detailed description of the ceremony. Oil the interior of the wrapper was written: " To serve on ojecasion of the next revolution in France, which will take place about the year 1847."
