Democratic city Meeting. The first meeting we have had the pleasure to attend in .the city of Lancaster, since our residence here, was held on Wednesday evening last, in the Court House: and it affords us much gratification to speak both of its spirits and its results.

Facts agataNt Wlilcr Prediction*. When the tariff of 18-10 was established by the democratic party in Congress, among other great interests which it was to involve in ruin, according ¦to the seers of federalism, was the coal interest ol Pennsylvania. The catastrophe was to be accomplished through the instrumentality of large importations of Pictou and Liverpool coal; for which, it was alleged, the new tariff had opened the markets of the United States. Facts, however, p\it to fiiglit this croaking prediction, as they have put to flight all others which have been put forth by the same prophets of ruin. Tt appears by the returns of the coal trade, published in the Philadelphia Commercial List of January 8th, that the entire quantity of foreign coal imported into the United States in. 1847, under the tariff of 184G, was 1*8,021 tons. Whole quantity imported in 184(5, under the tariff of 1842, was 1.16,85s tons: Thus it appears that, under the whig tariff of 1S42, there were over ...

Liberal Ideas in Europe. It is gratifying to. see continual evidence of the progress of sound politics in Europe. The demand lor reform comes up from the little local communities that, in times past, have played so conspicuous a part in civilization. It is here that the people have full play, for their action reaches the roots of society. Let but the wants of a better organization be felt here—let there, be intelligent, concerted action here—and nothing can resist the progress of political reform. These remarks are suggested by reading in a letter from Hungary that the assembly of the county of Pesth had instructed its members to demand of the next general assembly the following articles :— " 1. The coinplete equality of all citizens before the law, the publicity of the judicial debates, and the judgment by jury in all criminal affairs, not excepting political crimes. 2. The fonnation of a court of cassation like that of France, j 3. The abolition of forced labor, and all impo...

Mr. Meefe and the Germans. We notice in the Democratic Union an excellent speech delivered by Mr. Meek, the Representative from Centre county, in opposition to the motion to strike out from the resolution to print the report of the Superintendent of Common Schools, the number designated to be printed in German. The speech does credit to Mr. Meek, and is evidence of his warm attachment to the individuals in his district, whom the motion would have deprived of reading the admirable report We have noticed almost every session an attempt to prevent the publication of any documents in the German language, and have never teen a word to justify, it. The Germans, of our good old Commonwealth aTe among our most valuable and intelligent citizens, contributing as largely as any others to the general wealth and prosperity of the icountry; and why it is these ceaselestj attacks are indulged in; we cannot conceive, unless, indeed, it is oh account of their devotion to Democratfc principles....

Dr. Ueber on War. Dr. Francis Lieber, the. learned German ' s work on Ethics, was published by him several years ago, and was generally? well received as sound in doctrine. The New Orleans Courier quotes ' from part 2, book 5, page 443, to show that it is/the duty o f an opposition not only to yield, lifter war has been declared, but to aid to carrying it to an honorable end: ; ' u Wars may be wicked, nay stupid or infamous ; they maybe undertaken for the very purpose of distracting public opinion, and turning it againstpopular liberty;.; >or -they .may be undertaken by a large majority of the people and yet against the decided opinion of the opposition. Now, I believe that a rule, which allows ot but very few, and peculiar exceptions, is this: ' . " If your nation engages in the war, and not aimpJy a preposterous administration, against your opinion, you may act as a private citizen if you like; provided always you do in no manner aid directly or indirectly the enemy—a...
