In discharging the duty of tendering In ad vance a hearty welcome of your Olob to the Metropolis, pormit us to congratulate you, fel low Democrat?, upon the great Democratic victory achieved in Pennsylvania over the oombined elements of abolitionism. Black Re poblioanism, Maine-lawism, and Know Noth ingism. Upon the great battle field of Penn sylvania, the amalgamation party waged on Democracy a fierce and unrelenting war. The cry throughout the Northern States by the opposition leaders was?" Give all your measts to l'ennsylvania, for if we lose the Keystone, we shall loee all." Every city, town and township in your State was canvassed by the ministers, (who abandoned their holy func tions to engage in party politics,) and orators of the Fremont party. Their money was con tributed freely, (not for the aid of bleeding Kinsas,) and large sums were expended to defeat Mr. Buchanan in his native State, and of wbieh he has been her pride and admira tion for fall forty years, and always waa sus tained by her Democracy. But their unprincipled and base schemos failed to sway tne lion-hearted Democracy of the good old Keystone She came oat of the contest witb her banners floating triumphant ly, after a successful vindication of the prin ciples of national Democracy. The banner bearing the name of Pennaylvania'a favorite son rallied to the polls the honeet yeomanry of the country?spread confusion and dismay through the tanks of the enemy?and defeated the moat corrupt and dangeroua political party that haa exiated ainoe the adoption of the American Constitution * Signed by Wm Flinn and fourteen others. Thb Board of Trustees of Public Schools held their regular monthly meeting on tho 3J inst. Present?Messrs. AtLee, Davis, Dick inson, Magruder, McKim, Morgan, Pearson, Pendleton, and Wilson. Mr McKim presented from the editors some copies of " The Massachusetts Teacher, and Journal of Home and School Education " On motion of Mr. Magruder, it was ordered that when the schools close at the Christmas holidays they should open again on the first Monday of January, 1857 On motion of Mr AtLee, vocal music was introduced into the several schools as a study, at the discretion of the sub Boards. Mr AlLse offered the following : Rt<olved, That tbe Secretary be authorised and instructed to call on Col. Hickey and re ceive the copies of the Constitution of the United States so kindly offered to the Board of Trustees as rewards fur superior proficiency in the study of that branch of acholastic exer cises, and distribute the same to the pupils to wh?m they were awarded at the late publie - examination. After some further business the Board ad journed. ?? Waem Discussion ? Last night, Mr Towles. chairman of the Commit ee of Claims of the Council Board, submitted the papers in rela tion to the claim of Sweeny, Kittenhouae, Fant t Co., growing out of a contract made with Vespasian Ellis Mr Orme, also of that committee, objected >n the grouod, that as tbe committee had n?* :hance to examine the papers it could not be ?heir report. Mr. McCutchen, the other member of the soinmittee, followed, warmly denouncing the sourseof the chairman, and said that although He had asked for the papers, and tbe chair nan had prom Led them to him, he had not aa?l an opportunity of seeing them; and he irished to be relieved from serving on a com mittee where he had no opportunity of saying iow he should report. The discussion was warm, and finally ended by the Board refusing to receive the report. Sad Affair ?Yesterday afternoon, a man named John Moriarty, residing on the Island, was arrested by Officer Stoddard, charged with beating his wifo severely, and with siei ing his child, a boy about four years of age, and dashing it to the ground with force suffi sient to cause its death. Drs Willet and Stewart were summoned, who, after consultation, decided that therhild would probably die before morning. Moriarty was sent to jail by Justice Hollingshead. The admissions of the prisoner were the strongest ividence against him This morning the pris oner's brother reported at tbe guard house that the obild was dead. Moriarty was, we learn, a man of intemperate habits. Wasbimgton Light Infantry's Ball.? rhis company has changed the time of giving their ball from Easter Monday to the 23d of February, when the Infantry will present an sffair possessing unusual attraction, worthy of the old cerps, and deserving the patronage of their friends and the public.

Mr. Ethto* : Being on a visit to old George town College yesterday, imagine my great sur prise, as well as pleasure, when, upon my arrival there, to find drawn up on tbo parade ground, a military company, whioh, on in quiry, 1 found to be the junior cadets, a com pany composed entirely of boys from nine to fifteen years of age, numbering some 65 rank and file. A more beautiful and truly inter esting sight I never before witnessed. Through the kindness of a friend, I was in* troduced to their gentlemanly commander, Capt. Doonan, also lo Lieut*. Buckley, Lee, Snow and Neale, and with great pleasure ac cepted of them an invitation to pass the day at the villa belonging to the College. After going through a number of military evolutions, with an exaotness and precision which would have surprised some of our old eit military men, and which reiected great credit upon themselves and their officers, they paraded through the principal streets of Georgetown preceded by the excelsior With ers, (who, by the way, is a favorite of both ju nior and senior cadets,) and bis inimitable band, on which occasion tkey pertormed for the first time, in exquisite style, the " Cadet Polka," dedicated to the senior cadets, and " C tdet Quickstep," dedicated to the junior cadets of Georgetown College. The ladies with their usual grace and alac rity, saluted thorn with their sweet smiles and the waving of handkerchiefs, which was re sponded to on the part of the gallant Cadets, military decorum, of course, restraining their wonted demonstrations. They arrived at the villa about noon, when, after resting a short space of time, they par took of a sumptuous repast prepared for them, after whioh they proceeded to enjoy them selves in various ways until 4 o'clock, at which time they again formed ranks and returned to the college.
