Democracy is tlio institution of govern ment by the many, for the common good.- its energy is derived from tho will of the people: its object is the welfare of the pto pie; its strength is in the affections of tho peo ple; It is the most powerful element of mod ern civilization: it is tho greatest disbeli ever made in political science. I call it a discovery i and designedly. It was n discovery und not a creation. Bad laws may bo tho mere conceptions of tho hu man mind ; cood luws never can bo; for good ?aws depend on existing relations, which the wise lawgiver observes and em bodies in his codo. Our fathers proclaimed iho principles of democracy; but did not cre ate them. They wcro coeval with tho first conceptions of order in the divine mind ; and are as pervading and as extensive as moral existence. Like Christianity, nnd like nil moral principles, they tiro eternal in their truth and in their obligation. Tho principles of democracy, embodied in tho Declaration of Independence, wcro but tho manifesto of n system which, in iho di vino mind, was as old as creation. That manifesto spread through tho world with tho rapidity of light; in Europe, in South America, it was the dawn of n new day; the Mexican waked from his apathy ; the Span iard emerged from the. bigotry of the Inqui sition; Franco prepared to escape from the coils of absolutism. Tho principles of de mocracy contained in tho Declaration of In dependence possess vigor to revive tho de caying energies of nncient states; to enfran chise tho world; to renew tho youth of the nations. I know that the enemies of democracy at tompt to shield themselves from reproach, by exciting torror against the apprehended tyr nnny of tho people. But tyranny in a pop ular governmontisan impossibility; for to a popular government tyranny would bo self destruction. Democracy governs by means of truth, discovered by means of the activity of tho public mind, and applied by the delib erate exercise of tho public will ; but tyran nv checks discussion: it holds back the litrht: it intercoms truth. A government of tho people is a government conducted by tho mind of tho country, freely enlightened nnd freely exerted. Tyranny cannot reach the public mind ; and tyranny in a democracy is therefore an impossibility. Such are tho great systems which have divided tho political world. To tho tory, law is an expression of absolute will; to tho whig it is tho protection of privilego; to de mocracy it is a declaration of right. In tho tory system, tho executive and sovereign nro ono: in the whirr svstem. tho executive is. the sovereign, except whero oxprcssly limit ed : in tho svstem of democracy, the execu live ia not the sovereign but tho servant of the people. Tho tory clings to past abuses; tho whig idolises present possessions: de mocracy is the party of progress nnd re form. Tho tory, blaspheming God, pleads tho mil of heaven as a sanction lor a gov ernment of force; the whig, forgotting that Ood is not tho God of tho dead, appeals to prescription ; democracy lives in the con sciences of the living. Tho tory demands an exclusive established church; tho whig tolorates dissent on conditions; democracy enfranchises tho human mind. The lory idolizes power; the whig worships his in terests: democracy st rucr tries for canal rights. Tho tory pleads for absolute monarchy; tho whig for a wealthy aristocracy ; democracy for tho power of tho people. I ho tory re gards liberty as a boon ; tho whij; as o for tunate privilego; democracy claims freedom as an inalienable right. The tory loves to see a slave at tho plough ; tho whig prefers a tenant or a mortgaged farm; democracy puts tho plough in the hands of tho owner. The tory tolerates no elective franchise; thu whig gives a vote to none but men of prop erty ; democracy respects humanity, and struggles for universal education and uni versal suffrage. Tho tory bids the suffering poor gather the crumbs that fall from his ta ble; the whig says, 'Bo yo clothed, bo ye fed,' but allows no obligation; democracy holds it a duty to sooth the mourner, and to redeoin the wretched. The tory looks out for himself, the whig for his clan ; democra cy takes thought for tho ninny. The tory ndhcres to tho party of Moloch; the whig still worships at the shrino of Mammon ; de mocracy is practical Christianity. Thus I have endeavored to trace tho prin ciples of domocracy, embodied by Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence, to their origin in human nature und society. It is not difficult to establish, that they have from the first been tho principles of New Eng land; that they ore interwoven with her ear liest existence; that they formed the vital el ement of all her institutions; that they con stituted the germ of political lifo in "every New England State. The principles o( democracy were brought to our shores by the breezes that wafted the May Flower across tho Atlantic. The pil grims did not come for wealth, but for liber ty; they describe themselves as alike 'remo ved from gentry and beggary.1 'In our na tive land,' say they, 'we were accustomed to no more than a plain country life nnd the innocent trade of husbandry.' 'We hold ourselves,' they continue, 'strongly tied to nil caro of each other's good, and of the whole.' And when nmid thu storms of win- tor, the precious bark anchored within the waters of our bay, all tho emigrants ossein- Died in convention to institute n government for themselves ; to frame 'just and equal laws for the general good.' Then it was that the precedents of Arnericnn democracy began. In the cabin of tho May Flower humanity raised its banner, inscribing on its folds, 'EuVAL LAWS FOU THE CENlIltAL OOOD.'

In his loss, l recti om has been'deprivctl of ono of her bravest sons, in' whoso bosom universal philanthropy glowed with as genial warmth as ever ani mated tho heart oi nn American cuizeii. When ho fell, n soldier died. To bemoan his fate, is to pay a tribute of grateful res pect to Nature he seemed to bo her son. Tho object of this letter is to bug that you will accept tho watch which accompanies it. You will doubtless know it when you see it. And ns it has his name engraved on its- surface, it will do doubt be tho more accepta ble to you. As it wi nrounulv uo urainying to you to leurn in what wny I beenme possessed of it, permit me to state, that, last winter (.the precise date not recollected by me,) Colonel Crochet, in romnanv with several other gen- tlemen, passed through Lost Prairie, on Red Uiver.

The Colonel visited mo the next day and spent tho day with me. Ho obser- veil whilst here, that tus tunas were geiung short, and ns a means of recruiting them, ho must soil somethinr. He proposed to me to exchange watches he prized his nt 30 dol- . . ... , i i lurs more thnn mine, wincn sum i pain mm, und we accordingly exchnnired. With his open frankness, his natural hon esty of expression, his perfect wont of con cealment, I could not but bo cry much pleased. And with a hope that it might bo nn accommodation to him, I was gratified ut tho exchange, as it gave mo a kerpsnko which would often remind mo of nn honest man, a good citizen and n pioneer in tho cause of liberty, amongst his suffering breth ren in Texas. His military career was short; but though I deeply lament his death, I cannot restrain mv American smilo at the recollection of tho fact that he died as a United States sol dier should die, covered with his slain ene my, nnd eveu in death presenting to them in his clenched hands, the weapons of their de struction. We hope that the day is not" far distant, whon his udonted country will be freed from a savage oncmy, and afford to yourself and children a home, rendered in ovory way com- fortablo, by tho liberal donations of govern ment.

Another Gamiilino Scene. A gang of lilacldetrs, numbering upwards of two htm dred, were routed from the woods, about a quaitcr of a mile from tho Uambridgo Col leges, last evening. It appears that they commenced operations on Wednesday, Com mencement day. by erecting tents and pre paring their gaming tables, and since that time it has been the resort lor gnmblors, and the most dissolute and nbandoned. It was tho intention of the vile horde to remain there until after the anniversary, the 8th Septein- oer arm lor tnis purpose nau pienuiniiy supplfed themselves with beds and bedding. nnd ntdent spirits of all kinds. Tho land which thoy occupied is retired from dwel ling houses, nnd was chosen, tho better to carry on their unlawful trade; it was leased to them, ns wo have been informed, by George Meacham under what pretences wo know not. Two gentlemen returning in a chaiso last Wodnesday night to the city, were at traded to tho scene by the violent outcries ol tins gang, and were induced by curiosity to enter tho field. It was then near mid night, yet most of tho company were gamb ling and carousing. In ono tent thero wns a lone table, around which sat from fifteen to twenty desperato looking men, nil moro ut icaa iiiiu.iicmcu, pinning ni juice, iaou letto und Props; under tho table, and about the tent, lav dead drunk about as ninnv more wretches, for men they could not bo called, and this revolting spectado wns close ly nemmetl in by hlthy vagabonds and loaf ers, with hero and there n well-dressed man who had been decoyed to tho scene of ini quity. In another tent sat a jrroun of sots: some overcome by excessive revelling, had half reouneu tncmseives upon each other, and upon this body of intemperance, a few flick ering candles reflected their dim rays, but wmiuicni to snow tne haggard and pnllid visages of tho bacchanalians. The other tents presented a similar scene, but many were rendered still more revolting, by the profanity nnd gross obscenity of tho th'rong. A complaint being made to tho Selectmen, those gentlemen accompanied bv Nuthan Fiske, Deputy SheiifT. Frederick Mnnson, Constable, and J. II. Chamberlain, assisted by some others, repaired to the spot at dusk nst evening. Mr. Chnmberluin rend a proc Inmntion for tho assemblage to disperse, but without effect. Tho principals nnd ring endors maddened with liquor, mndo n vio lent resistance. Tho officers of justice were restrained, and stoned, nnd sonie who had volunteered to ussist tho Selectmen, injured. Four of the gnng wero arrested. Their names are Joseph Robinson, Moses Ilemen wny, John A.

Eighteen witnesses wero examined, somo or whom saw tho dis graceful scene which wo have accurately described. It wns proved that tho officers once got possession of the implements of ga ming, &c, and had placed them in a wagon, and that the wagon was afterwards rescued from them by the rioters. It was proved that Robinson was the ringleader, that ho threw stones at Mr. Manson, and with oth ers followed him from the field sbmo dis tance, using violent threats, uiftl thnt Mr. Manson escaped by tithing reluge m the hotis? ofn black man named Sylvester. From the testimony ol Mr. 1-isUo the Sheriff; it appeared that Robinson, who ap peared to bid defionce to llie laws, pursucu liim some distance along tho road, with a bludgeon in his hand, threatening him in these words,"stop you rascal, you arc the man I want, you rascal," at the same titno flanrishini? the Uudceon nnd using the " -..i.l T .. most extravagant auu violent language. Theothor prisoners were fully identified as heins concerned in the riot, but the cuse had not been disposed of when, our pnpur went to press. If thero had been a sufficient force, all tho leaders of this disgraceful sceno might have been secured, together with tho eviden ces of their trado. been ro- i Human Ferocity. Wo copy the sub joined narrative from the Is. 1. Evening Post, which announces that it has ceived from crediblo authority : A nnrlv of Creek Indians, consistin-: oft Ieven warriors, and about the sumo num ber of women mid children, attempted. j short time since, to pass the Georgia fronti er, with a view of joining tho hostile Semi- nolcs.

When," wns percctvnti mat uotn oe fenco nnd escape were hopeless, two Indian girls, about sixteen or seventeen years ofage, who are described as being or an interesting appearance, rushcu townrusan oniccr oi mo party, ond laid each a hand on nis arm in token of requiring his protection. Tho offi cer understood tho sign, which is a common ono among the aborigines, and assured them that lie would answer Tor their salety. i wo of tho Indian warriors having escaped, and tho oflictir being obliged to go in pursuit of them, ho left his prisoners to tho care of a man named JenKins. uuring nis nosencc this wretch took tho two girls, tied them to gether by thu hair of their heads, nnd delib erately beat out their brains, while they beg ged in vain for mercy in their imperfect En glish. In the course of tho samo affair, Jenkins attempted to butcher one of the Indian child ren, about seven or eight years of age, with a knife. Tho child sprang to tho arms of another of tho party, who interfered to ssre it, and only prevented the ruffian from exe cuting his purpose by putting his rifle to his breast and threalning to shoot him if he per sisted. We nro happy to learn that no oth er individual of the party was in any man ner concerned in these atrocities. If the laws have tho samo force in that part of Georgia which they ought to have ovary where, Jenkins will bo tried and executed for the murder. PIRACY ON THE LAKES. We learn from Captain Robinson, of tho steamboat General, Gratiot, that a schooner of about thirty tons burden, without colors or name, and containing n crew or twenty three pe A, armed with ptstols dirks and muskets, was taken In the St. Clair luvur, on Saturday night, August 20, under strong suspicion of piratical intentions. Suspicion was first excited when she nrrived nt Hur son's Island, where they landed and stole three head of cuttle belonging to Mr. Wur son. Whilo engaged in this act. one of the crew, who had previously meditated an es cape, left his companions, and communica ted to tho people ashore tho fact that the cuttto hud been stolen by tho crew, nnd nlso matlu affidavit of such other Tacts ns justi fied an immediate and energetic movement bnthe part of Mr. J. K. Smith, the Collec Ur fS...n,n"ilii. Sherilfof St. Clnir, nnd other citizens, to nrrest the vessel before sho entered Lake Huron, whither sno was bound, . - Wdnn itir. Sipnmhnnt Gen. Gratiot arrived nt the village ofjPrtlmrr. on Saturday about sundown. Mr. Chamberlin. tho Sheriff, and nJ.nni nn r.iiixens- embarked, and directed Cnpt, Robinson to proceed immediately in pursuit of the vessel. Tho urauoi proceeu cd us directed, nnd w hen about six miles be ihn inntltfl n f Hlnck River, about 10 o dock ot night, tho vessel was discovered under foil sail. On coming up with her, Capt. Robinson hailed her in tho usual man ner, but no satisfactory response being made, they were ordered by the Sheriff to come n longside, which wns done with reluctance. Upon inquiry it was found that she had no papers. Process was then issued upon tliem by tho Sheriff, and thoy wero towed into Black River, where they were hold in cus tody tonwnitan examination, which wns to take place on the 22d ult. Whatovct may have been tho occupation or design of these men, it is certain that their appearance anil mat oi uicir vessel, noa such us to cirato mistrust in tho minds of those who met them. The schooner bore no name, was painted black, with a red streak jutt above, the wnter line, and appear ed to he well built for sailing, and apparent ly nn old vessel. Tho crew were generally armed, nnd the officers wore blue coats, in uniform, with American buttons, but other wise British trimmings, ond nil omnmcnted with huge mustachios.

The canal was broken in two places on Dr. Trent's farm, in Gooch Innd, by the mere immenso fall of rain.

Fredericktoirn Gazette. Corroboration of Maria Monk. Wu have received somo interesting particulars con cerning tho examination in New York, by a competent committee, of a young woman who recent escaped from the Hotel Dieti Nunnery in Montreal, which wo aro told, not only serves to corroborate tho dinclosures ofMuria Monk, but exhibits a much worse state of things in that establishment than had been beforo mndc public. We are further assured that the testimony ol this witness will remove all reasonable doubt of the truth of the Disclosures heretofore made, and that it will he laid before thu public without any unreasonable delay. The witness (Frances Patrick) is a native of Vermont, and is now 2G years of age, having been twenty-three years un inmato of tho nunnery. She came to Now York under tho protection of a respectablo gentle man of Rome, in that State. Tho publica tion of tho examiner will be anxiously look ed for. Newark Daily Advertiser. Silk Worms havo had nn unexumpled bad summer. Tho amount of wet and cold weather has been very prejudicial to their prosperity. They need dry air and a worm temperature, nnd consequently thoso who have fed worms this season havo been obli ged to take every precaution to prevent their dying. Still more tlutn ordinary numbers havo in this way been killed, and tho coc oons are unusually defective Great num bers, wo hove noticed, in cocoonerits, have, begun winding, nnd aAor enclosing them selves but slightly with floss silk, have sus pended operations and died. Tho cold has a very pernicious effect. We have noticed tho Worms at various times this summer, when iho thermometer wns slightly depress ed in the morning, lying in a perfect state of stupor, apparently dead. A change in tlio atmosphere of but few degrees had iho effect to rouso some of them up, and then they would move quick and cat voraciously. Thero is much both' curious and interesting to bo found out by attentively noticing the habits and transformations o'f this mysteri ous little Worm. Northampton Cour.
