Last fall the Democracy felt tlint unless they succeeded in the Presidential election, their party would at least bo dismembered, if not entirely obliterated. Iy the most strenuous 1 efforts and unscrupulous means, they managed to succeed. Their success was in no small de gree owing to the deception and treachery of the ."side-door" loaders, who pretended to be actuated by an intense patriotism and love of t principle, but whose real object was to si?Iit the Opposition, and thereby elect Buchanan. Since then, the Democratic party Ins been ap- parcntly ''firm united" and ''harmonious'' ; but it is only apparently, tor it requires no un- - usually Keratinizing observer to discern the elements of disc...

The Le gislature having, at the last two sessions, a dopted sundry proposed amendments to the Constitution, the amendments will be submit ted to the people at the Cctober election for their approval. If they receive a majority of the votes cast they will thenceforth become a part of our organic law. The most of these amendments are in the form of new sections, being additions to the Constitution rather than alterations of it." One only, the third, is an alteratiou, and that refers mainly to the division of Philadelphia into representative and senatorial districts. The Lancaster Examiner gives the substance of the provisions which they embody, and the propriety of the changes contemplated, in the tollffwing article.
