THE DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM. Resolved, That tho American democracy place their trust in the intelligence, the patrjotisoi,and the discriminating justice of the American peo pie. Resolved, That we regard this as a distinctive feature of our political creed, which we arc proud to maintain before the world, as the great moral element in a form of government, spring ing from and upheld by the popular will ; and we contrast it with the creed and practice of fed cralism, under whatever name or form, which seeks to palsy the will of the constituent, and which conceives no imposture too monstrous for the popular credulity. Resolved, Therefore, that, entertaining theso views, the democratic party of this Union, thro' their delegates assembled in a general Conven tion of the states, coming together in a spirit of concord, of devotion to the doctrines and faith of a free representative government, and appeal ing to their fellow-citizens for tho rectitude of their intentions, renew and re-assert, b...

The whig papers have so far found out who Gen. Pierce is, since his nomination, as to satis, fy themselves that he is a going to be a mighty hard nag to beat. The Albany Register the Buffalo Commercial Advertiser, the Detroit Advertiser, and other leading whig journal, tell this in plain terms to their friends, and admon ish them to put forward their best man, and then prepare to work like beavers. The entire Union, no less than the spirit of confidence, which every where prevails throughout the democratic ranks, warns them that they are not to meet with any boy's play in the approaching contest. When fear and trembling thus seize upon our adversaries at the firing of the first gun, the issue is hardly to be regarded as doubtful. Democrats certainly have nothing to fear eve rythlng to hope for. Adrian Walchtower. The Licking County Branch of the State Bank of Ohio has failed.

Lieehia. Wc have later ud vices from Libe ria, by an arrival from Sierra Leone, which give some interesting articles of intelligence. The chastisement which the Liberian Govern ment recently inflicted upon Grando and his marauding allies, for their attack upon a de- fenceless village, teems to have caused some shyness between the authorities at Liberia and the local representatives of the English Gov eminent. It will bo romembered that letters from Li beria including despathes from Mr. Benson, Secretary of State, spoke in strong terms of the conduct of some English traders, charging them with inciting the natives to their murderous at tack upon the territories of tho Republic. Mr. Hanson, the British Consul, was named, as was also Mr. Lawrence. The British Commander upon the coast has instituted inquiries into tho matter.

The signal successes which have attend ed our military operations since the commence ment of tho present war, would seem to justify the expectation that Mexico will be disposed to offer fair terms of accommodation.

Sir: I have been absent from this place a considerable time, rendering tho last friendly of fice I could, to a particular friend, whose eyes I closed on the 20th ultimo. Owing to this your letter of the 4th of October, was not received un til the 1st inst. Upon the receipt of tho anonymous communi cation mado mo from New York, I hastened to lay it before you. That course was suggested to mc, by tho respect I felt for you as a man and a soldier and that you might have it in your pow er to answer how far you had been guilty of so base and inexcusable conduct. Independent of tho services you had rendered your country, tho circumstances of your wearing the badge and in signia of a soldier, led me to the conclusion, that 1 was addressing a gentleman. With these feel ings you were written to, and had an idea been for a moment entertained, that you could have descended from the high and dignified charact...

DEATH'S FINAL CONQUEST. The glories of our birth ond state v Are shadows, not substantial things ; ' There is no urmor against fate ; Dcatli lays his icy hands ou kings', Scepter and crown Must tumble down, 'And in the dust be equal mado With the poor crooked scythe and spade. Some men with swords may reap the field, And plant fresh laurels where they kill; Put their strong nerves at last must yield, They tame but one another still. Early or late They stoop to fate, And must give up their murmuring breath, When they, pale captives, creep to death. The garlands wither on your brow ; Then boast no more your mighty deeds : Upon death's purplo altar now See where the victor victim bleeds. All heads must come To the cold tomb ; Only the actions of the just Smell sweet and blossom in the dust.

MORE ABOUT NAPLES. Our readers have not forgotten the thrill of horror which ran through the frco portion of Christendom when Mr. Gladstone disclosed th outrages practiced in the name of justice by the Government of Naples, or when Emile Girardin denounced the barbarities inflicted on the unhap py thousand languishing in the prisons of the Roman States. The facts they Btated have been vaguely denied indeed, but never disproved, and the denial has only serverd to-deepen the gen. cral conviction of their truth. The facts we are now about to fttate are equally authentic. When the last Sicillian revolution broko out, a German gentleman, engaged in learned stud ies and residing on the island, took part in it. After iha rising was suppressed he succeeded in making his escape to Turkey, where ho now oc cupies a highly respectable position.

Mankind is prono to praise that in others ; which they do not themselves praotice.but prac tising it themselves, they praise not others but their own humble selves, and so it is in regard to labor, they like to sea others work and toil for their daily bread, but do not liko to doit themselves, nor even have the praise of working for a living.
