T.ise ari'ilre,d,-' pie" Democ] *-raty i
must ever prevail in every f-Lee land, i
where the ju.,t .' h:= " f t:e peple :are
known and utoslain,.d, because they
rectilise no, ditinctins in mentibere ofi
the same race caused by patrician or
plebian caste. by noble or itnorle birth, i
or lbv r,,yal blood. The ,eqatl rights
and privileges of the citi;ze of theL
cotuntry are preserved and recognized
only by these principles.
Men by nature are Democrats. Their
independence and equality teach it to
them in their earliest years. Children
of the same race, pure as they aret when
unimpressed by human .laws and
maxims, are imbued witn Democratic
principles. The.y i can see no difference
in their blood; io difference in their
wants, thei r pasions or their propensi- t
ties. They are the germate of Nature's '
democratic ,oblemebt, and if su'Iir- d to t
grow up withthhese, their earl est feel- d
i:gs awnd instincts, they will be Demc
irats. For these reasni the r)'lrocr t t- t
ic pairtyI and the Demncratic r'i t i,'
have over been dominant in our countrvy, I
and ever will be. They cannot be era'!- I
ticated, unlest, yout dig up the ''founds i
tiuns of our country's liberty. Even t
then you would not eradicate Dciemoera. i

Old \norld only to have it cme forth
in all its power and 'cigor at the first o
opportunity. The Delm+ocratic ;;artyv'
may be tried as 1'y fire in our c' untry, 11,
as it has been, but it will never be des- h
tro d. These trials and reverses %%ilI e
but cleanst e and purify, ant bring orut i

ali~t is stated in a letter from Ber
lin that the Emperor of Russia has an
nounccd his intention to convene a rep

chv of Finland in the course of 1862
This will be the first assembly of a par
hamcntary kind that has ever met in
Russia, and in this respect the intelli
igenrce deserves the attention of the
widest circle of politicians. A hope ii
entertained in Russia that the conces
sion will be followed by similar grants
to some of the other provinces.
--The New York correspondent of tho
Charleston Mercury says in regard to
betting in Gothm upon the prospective
renewal of the batte between Heenan
and Sayers:
houhld the fight ever be arranged to
come off again, Heenan will certainly
coruuand six to four, or two to one, in this
city among those who have hitherto been
the strongest partisans of "Sir Tom."
The national feeling in favor of Heenan
is now so strong that many who bet hats,
gloves clothing and small sums of mon
ev, and articles of moderate cost, cheer
fully concede that lie was the winner and
pay over their wagers.
Tas NAvIms OrF TrE WoRLD.r-It seems
that a ship of the line, to be plated with

with an iroin spur i30 feet long project
Sirg from her bows, and to be propelled
at a great veloeity by engines of 1200
hilrses power, has just been laid down
in the dock yard at Cherbourg. If we
l ,k around we find France is relying
very much upon plated ships of war;
but, indp endcnt of these novelties, the

great strid."s during the past six years,
and now aosunes formidable dimen
sions. Tie Russian navy again now
numbers forty-two sail of the line in the
Baltic, which will soon be converted in
to a screw fleet. The minor navies of
Holland Sweden, Denmark and the Uni
ted States, are all in a state of conver
sion and progression. And if we add
to these the steam navy of Great Bri
tain, now fortunately equal to the na
vies of France and Russia combined,
and then recall the changes that politi

that the sea will become the theatre of
events more important and decisive than
