I The Democratic papers North, arc fnl- j lin/X in, one after another, in support of j the proposition to unite the broken ranks , ^of the partv. by abaiulonincf NVHhrfot'n I <WJ?rovi o, nnd Van Huron's schismatic no- [ tions on tho subject of Free-soil. Speak* ing of (he proposition, the Albnly Arpvs uses the following language*: "Union is certainly attninabV, if no more is demanded thnn that nU r.fnnd upon the principles, tor'platfrrm,' if you pie; so, i ol 'I nomas JeWc-i-son. This has been 10- i . garded ay broad enough and large enough for democrats to stand upon, since '08.? The friend., of the democratic par-ty, of all sections, can gather upon it, in concord and united eifort, against the present proscriptive whig administration, and rally under their old and triumphant banner. Suoh, we hopd, mav ho the iosuc of the prevalent de*i -e of harmony." We judge, from theRc signs, that the people of the North are beginning to f ee uio iriuioi me HUicifl il wo-ktngs of Abolitionism, against the*Oon?titu?ionnl ?-ights of tho South, and their inevitable tendency to disunion; and honee we may look for a radical change in public sentiment on this subject of vital interest to the Union. It will be a glorious day for the liepublic when the peoplo of the States de icrmmc 10 unite upon, ami permanently maintain the true p-inciples of the Government?when the loc d interests of the Suites shall ho held sacred and inviolate, to l>c controlled by the people, whose sovereign privilege and duty it is to protect. and defend th?*m?when the Constitution shall bo regarded as the bond of itrimn fir*/I ? ihiivii, <>ii\< ltd |j|uill lllHI ubllllllA Ull lilt? subject of lights delega cd, and those held in rcservntion, obeyed and respectcd by the people of each ?S'(nte, to the letter, and in accordance with its true spirit? when it shall be deemed sufficient that the Congress shall exercise the power bestowed upon it, "to dhposo of and make needful rules and regulations respecting the territories, or other property belong mg to tno united states," .vithout prejudice to the chums of any particular ?S>tate. We say, it will l?5 a glorious day for the States of th'13 Union, when this dotormin auon snail do permanently resolved upon by the people of all its confederated parts; for then may each American boast that liberty is established upon a basis never to be shaken ; and point with p;ido to the genius of his fathers, whose gigantic powers of intellect were sufficient to conceive, ?arid'whose proud sons are able and magnanimous enough to maintain, the aicred chartor that binds as one so large a number of States, with interests diver sified, separate and distinct. For a long period the /South has been subjectc I to insult, by the wanton attempts of the people of the freo States to interfere with her looat interests in tho mxtter of slavery, in violation of tho ivf.icles of confederation. The second Section o? the fourth Article of the fV.|Sstitution provides that "no person hr.M to service or labor in one ?tato. nndr.r thn l.uv< thereof, escaping into another, shall, in conscquence of any law or regulation therein, be discharged from such service or labor, but shall bo delivered up on cltum of the party to whom such service or labor may be clue." Yet, thin provision has been totally disregarded, and our slaves', escaping from erviiuy b^vn found Erote<;tion under laws emo'od by St-atc tfgHl'it'cs. The parties claiming have de nnnded that the refugees be delivered up, and for their pains they ha^e been insulted and even murdered by Abolition ista, in utter violation of tho la w establish oil by tho people of tho tftatee for, .heir defence ruid protection. Can Lhin state of off lira continuo to exist without prejudice to the Union ? Long has tho &Htth borne these insults and violations, end it is time that some amendment should be made i in- 11mi; w ni inna, when tho people of the North will be required to couih i)ie cost of such interference with Southern institutions^ The people of th<> douth ; have endurod tlieso evils till they have j l>ecoine inr.ufterubhx It fs the duty of the people of the free Htntcs to see to it i 110 further encroachment is made upon the rights and interests of the slivo States. Thcre#is but one stop now between union and disunion. The Democratic party North have moved to save the Union, and if successful in enlighten ing tlie benighted minds of the masses, j we ma.- yet hope to >ec the Government j redeemed, and the Union preserved. As long as the njasses arc kept in igno-ance j of the ttue principles of the sacred inst'u- J ment which unite the States, and mo suf fered to be led by blind guide??fanatic ' Abolitionists, the Union will be in dangor of dissolution. The first steps have now j been taken to redeem tlx? countrv :inH w?> ! hope, We long, to witness n radical ch nge ! throughout the land. [From (he Spartan] Glf.nn Spiunob, Aug. V, 1840.

The indigent parent who is desirous I that his child would receive the benefits of the school, but who is unable to remunerate the teacher, will be furnished with the necessary funds from the money appropriated by the legislature of this State, for that purpose, (until the same may be j exhausted by applications prior in point of i trne,) by signifying his wish to Col. 0.

A letter, addressed, we believe, to the Boston Daily Advertiser, has been going the rounds of tho press relative to the commission of an alleged outrage upon the American Consul at kome by some j French soldiers. We understand that Mr. T3rown, our I Consul, called in oerson and nvid? a ron. 1 re^enfntion of the facts of this ca*e to General O di < f The geneml-in-chief received him witn courtesy, and listened to his statement with due attention, accompanied with nil proper expressions of regret, nnd, in conclusion, directed the chief of the staff to return with My.

A patrol, passing at the time, entered the house, not being apprised of its character, and made prisoneof tho individual in question, and of another who was recognised as a deserter from the Fre 11 oh army. They then withdrew with tlie prisoners. It was in I evidence upon oath that the patrol deported themselves witlmut mnnnnnn m?l i were uninformed of the character of the premises until they were on the point of relHng. Mr. Brown left the ci'.y wi'h his family while thi-i examination was in progress, leaving Mr Freemen (our Consul at Ancona) in tho temporary discharge of the uu'iesoi mo itotmn consulate. In con- : sequence of M\ Brown's nbscncevand un- ; dor the imp o<-ion thntthe consul ito was j lofi without an agent, we understand that Genen l Oirliaot addressed a communication tn Afr.

To designate him as a I living skeleton is no figure of speech, but the liternal truth?for he is nothing but sKin ami hone from his neck down to his extremities. His arms, hnnds, legs nnd feet are entirely useless to him ; mid he occupies a nitting or recumbent posture, being wholly incapable of standing erect. Nothing hat "ocular demonstration" will suffice to give an adeounte conception of the extreme and reed-like slende/ness of his limbs. Of course he is utterly helpless, and is enti ely dependent on others to be fed, dressed and otherwise attended.
