Tbe Young Democracy. One of the most gratifying signs of the times is the fact, that so much of the young talent of the country is every where coming forward in support of the popular cnuse. It has been a systematic policy, on the rart of Federalism, to exert all its art, and apply all its means, to seduce every sprightly genius into its ranks. In almost all the schools and colleges professors are found, who arrogate a superiority over the masses, on the score of belonging to ^ a caste above them; elevated either by religion or learning, although the one discountenances all such lofty pretensions, and the other, when coupled with good sense, does nothing to encourage them. By these instructors, however, thousands of our Young Men, of fine native and acquired talents, of generous and ennobling sentiments, are prostituted to a cause, at the threshold of life, which keeps, them forever struggling against the glorious principles which gave birth to the Independence of their countr...

The Debate in the House on Monday. We lay before our renders this morning, the debate in the House on Monday, growing out of the assault of Mr. Wilmot, of this Mate, upon the respected editor of the Washington Union , the Hon. James Buchanan, and the general administration. The course pursued by Hon. Charles Browx of the Hid District, and Hon. James Thompson of the Erie District in this State, is such as to entitle them to the applause of the Democracy of the whole Commonwealth. Judge Thompson is right in attributing to Mr. Wilmot personal feelings against James Buchanan; and we will tell our readers the so ~ urce from which they have risen. Mr. Wilmot, no doubt, cherished the hope of being able to make of the Democracy of Pennsylvania what the friends of his Proviso have made of the Democracy of New York a divided and discordant political household and also that he might be the leader of a dangerous party, for his own purposes. Nothing contributed more to crush these hopes th...

Curious Prediction Fulfilled. When the celebrated traveller, Vox Hdmboldt, some years ago, was in Mexico, he published the following prediction, which, at the time of its utterance, doubtless seemed to many proof of a disordered intellect: " The time will come, when' public coaches will roll between the city of Philadelphia and the city ofMexico. " What a prophet was Humboldt! In the jimcrican Star, published at Jalapa, in Mexico, we find an advertisement of a line of American coaches, which was to commence running between that city and Vera Cruz, " as soon as the station houses on the road arc supplied with forage for ' the mules and horses." How many years will elapse before, under he auspices of American energy and enterprise, not only Philadelphia, but even Boston, will be in close communication with the city of Mexico, not indeed by the slow agency of coaches, but by means of steamboats, and locomotives, and magnetic telegraphs. Hoiboldt' s was a prediction to be commende...

A Tribute to our Adopted Citizens. - Col. Wxnkoop has addressed a letter to one of his friends in Pottsville. in which he pays the following just tribute to our adopted citizens. Before this gallant gentleman left for the wars, he was an ardent l; Native," as he had through1 , most of his former life been a "Whig." The course of the Federalists on the war has led him to repudiate them, and we ecu that his experience has taught him that Kativeism is no less unworthy.

Government Clerks.—Mr.; Hobbie, Assistant Postmaster General, it is said, Wishes to introduce the English rule as to theNSovemmcnt Clerks—that their appointments shall be permanent. He wishes all the clerks in the departments first examined as to their competency, and the incompetent clerks discharged. He then desires a, law passed preventing their removal for political opinions, and only upon charges of misconduct or immoral character. If Mr. Hobbie, during his rustications among the court-fashionables of Europe, could pick up nothing- better suited to our republican institutions, Uncle Sam could with propriety have saved the expense of his mission. He should know that lifeoffices, however suited to " English Rule," are utterly repugnant to the genius and spirit of our institutions, and opposed to the taste and habits of our people. Limited official tenures, and frequent reckonings with public opinion, are among the chief elements of republican govemrnent, and as this is a vital ...

SmtreiHU Cuiii'l. Washington, Feu (1, 18-18. The Supreme Court room was densely crowded to-day, ' it having been announced that Mr. Clay wouliVspeak, and those who attended were not disappointed. Mr. Clay commenced his speech with a splendid exordium, alluding to the sacrifice of personal interest and comfort in coming to Washington. He said he had been highly gratified at the manifestation of respect he had met with from his old friends of the bar, and members of CongresF, as well as private citizens. He was reluctantly called to witness scenes of former action. The manifestations of respect were flattering to him in his declining years. It was usual with the Court t o extend peculiar leniency tojroung practitioners. Though not of that class, he might have need of indulgence with those not having familiarity with the practice of the bar. Mr. Clay looked remarkably well. His voice was admirable, and the audience deeply attentive.

West Point Vindicated. In some remarks made.in reply to a complimentary address at Concord, New-Hampshire, on the 7th ult., Gen. Pierce paid the following very explicit.and manly tribute to the eminent utility of the Military Academy at West Point: " Gen. Pierce proceeded to say that he had to retract opinions he had formerly entertained and expressed in relation to the Military Academy at West Point. He was now of opinion that the city of Mexico could not have been entered in the way it was, but for the science and intelligence in military affairs of the officers of the old army, mostly from West Point. Services were rendered by the officers of the topographical engineers and ordnance which could not have been rendered but by men who had received the most complete military education. The force of the Americans had been overrated. Over 7,500 effective men left Puebla to attack • a city of 250,000 inhabitants, defended by 35,000 of the best troops ever raised in Mexico , 100 pi...

Hon. David Wilmot. This gentleman has been- chosen a delegate to the 4th of March Convention from Bradford County. We are gkd of it He will now have an opportunity, by mingling in person with the Representatives of tho Democracy of the Slate, to assure himself how heartily they condemn and despise his notorious Proviso. If he should fail to offer it himself, in terms of approval, we trust there will be Delegates enough in attendance to propose res* lutions in condemnation; so that the rest of the States may see, how little: sympathy there exists in Pennsylvania for this the rno«t -dtn&eroua md prolific instrument of domestic f4isff£^d, tha{ ever folly and faction have inventttl. ¦

. A Traitor Rebuked. Jasper E. BRAnr, the federal member of Congress from the Cumberland district, was one of the few representatives from Pennsylvania, who voted for a resolution censuring President Polk and the : Mexican war. A whig-county meeting was lately heid in Chambersburg, at-which, among other resolutions ofiered, was one approving of the course of their: representative in Congress upon the war; and although Mr. Brady was,personally present, it was voted down by a large " majority. Thus we see that a meeting composed of Mr. Brady ' s own political associates .refuses to sanction his course.

A Crash.—The floor of the large Hall in the College building gave way last evening with a terrible crash, whilst the Taylor meeting was being held in it. Such another fearful scene as was presented by the rush of the assemblage for the door, we trust that we shall never again behold. Some ' were precipitated headlong down the stairs, whilst otherewere trampled under foot. We could not learn that any were seriously injured—but a great number were more or less hurt. We understand that the floor settled at least sLx inches , that the iron columns in the Council Chamber under the Hall, sank into- their foundations that distance. Many lost their cloaks, hats, canes, &c, in the rush.—Cincinnati Inquirer.

A Reminiscence. Six years ago, we heard one of the Democratic .representatives from Bedford county declare, at 3Ja. rrishurg, that there was « but one man in the 0eited States, whose personal and political popularity in Bedford county was equal to that of James 'Buchanan—and that man was Andrew Jackson." W.eaK forcibly reminded of this remark, bthe ^cept g ratifying proceedings on the part of the Bedford <i)unty Democracy. It was as true, as it jjas,st«flrin?Ma ' emphatic.

j Connecticut Injustice..—Mr. Baldwin has introduced a resolution denying to Mexico the right to cede any of her territory. This, when we consider the pumpkins for which the soil of Connecticut is seeded every planting time, seems tj> us rather ungenerous.
