The democracy of this Congressional District, and we might say of the whole Union, will hail with extreme gratification the circular of the lion. RtciiiBD Mi'nrnr, which we publish today. It aeals the fute of the pending canvass in this District, and who knows but of the next President, and all the great measures of national policy now agitating the country ? Hefore this circular there was but little doubt of Ws defeat in the minds ot many ; at any rate, the battle would have been a hard tought one, and the worst of feelings creattcd. It might have caused the defeat of the county ticKet in several instances, anu arouseu dissensions which it would have taken years to reconcile. But all this is now ohviuted, and the Democracy will appear at the polls ono week from Monday next, with but one candidate, firm, determined, and united. And it cannot now be beat.

It was in the middle of winter, on the night of the twenty-third of January, when tho weather was miserably cold : it neither decidedly froze, nor did it thaw: but between the two it was cold and damp, and penetrated to the yery bone, even of those who sat in carpeted rooms before large fires, and were warmly clad. It was on this evening that the seven little children of David Baird, tho weaver, stood huddled together in their small room, beside a small fire which was burning comfortlessly. The baby lay in a wooden cradle on the comer of the hearth. The fire, to he sure, gave some warmth, because it had boiled an iron pot full of potatoes, but it gave very little cheeriness to the room.

THE ILLINOIS FREE TRADER. Irish Itepenl. This question is becoming deeply interesting. As we understand it seeks nut to dismember the llriush Empiie, but simply to give Ireland her own parliament, as was the case previous to the year 1800. She disclaims not her loyalty and fealty to the Uritish sovereign, but she wishes the law-making power transferred front London to Djblin, from foreigners to her own sons. It is not rebellion, but a peaceable remedy provided by the llritish constitution, which the Irish are snuggling vo obtain by the votes of the British parliament itself. Some of the whig papers which condemn the repeal movement in this country, remark that England would have had just as much right to incite the nullifiers of South Carolina in 1833, as the Americans have to encourage the Irish Iiepcalers. The case is different ; South Carolina took the ground that she had a right to secede and become a seperate and independent nation, without the consent of congress or the otliei...
