Meetinc. op the Untbubifibd Dbmocka CV?They art Waiting for the Platform?An Ex 7 Ion on Upon the Topic of Kinky Hair.?A meet ing of the Nat .onal Democratic association was held lasimght at Parker's Hall, Pennsylvania av?-nue. In the absence of the regular officers of the Association, Mr. Thomas Thornley was called to the chair, and Mr ^am'l Brereton act ed as secretary After the election of some 20 new members, Mr. It. Adams, on behalf of the decoration committee, announced that their new flag had arrived in town, and would be thrown to the breeze at 9 o'clock to-morrow (this) evening, if the nomination wat heard of at that time. Mr. Adams hoped that a large crowd of persons -would be in attendance to give three hearty cheers on the occasion. Mr. Fred Smith then made a statement in re lation to tbe committee appointed two weeks ago to make preparations to celebrate the rati fication of the Constitution of the United States, and proposed to ratify tbe nominees of the Chi cago Convention at me same time. Mr. Smith, before taking his seat, desired to congratulate his Democratic friends at the bright prospects that had arisen in the horizon. It would not be long, said the speaker, before they would lay Abe Lincoln in a grave from which be would never resurrect. The Democrats would then look closely into the actions of Lincoln and all under him, and see why our citizens had been buried in living tombs, see why our people had been taken from their homes and firesides and buried in Fort Lafayette, see why our happiness was taken away from us, and our blessed country thrown into confusion. Then a man could come here jingling some thing in his pocket, but now it was "green backs"?all greenbacks. [Applause.] He did not know who the nominee would be. he had his preference, but would support any man who was plat ed upon tbe platform of the Chicago Convention. Mr. W. H. Hope expressed himself as highly pleased with the remarks of his friend Smith, and said that here in the shades of the White House there were men who were bold enough to come forward and denounce bad acts. [Ap plause.] Six months ago Republicans who would nave voted for Mi. Lincoln would now vote to defeat him. He (the speaker) had met a gentleman on the avenne, who came here from Massachusetts for the purpose of re en listing men, whotold him (Mr. H.) that is some of the regiments he had visited there was hardly a man who would vote for Lincoln. Mr. Hope concluded by saying he thought he knew who the nominee of the Convention would be?he was not his choice?but Geo. B McClellan would be the man. [Loud ap plause.] Mr. J. E. Norris said the great assemblage at Chicago would speak the sentiments of an outraged people. The nominee would be an honesL, upright American, whoever he was, and he would be elected President of the United States, and sweep from the land the stench that had filled it for the iast four years. So sure as the election took place, those who voted for McClellan would see the handwriting on the wall to "hand over the power of tbe Government." [Applause.] Be fore a week has passed a new era will come round. Instead of the firing of cannon at the Patent Office, the cannon from Maine to Cali fornia would speak out and announce us free. [Applause 1 If he (Mr. N.) knew the platform he would feel at liberty to speak. The plat form to suit him was the Constitution, peace, and the harmonious Union ol the States. Mr. J. T. Eniiis was next called upon, who made a few remarks in relation to who the nominees would be, and urged upon the asso ciation the necessity and importance of work ing day and night toelect them. The campaign would be short and decisive, but it was neces sary for all to put a shoulder to the wheel. They should circulate documents, and every member should devote a portion of his time to sending them away. Upon the conclusion of Mr. Ennis's remarks, Mr. T. G. Clayton arose and said he desired to read an article from the New York Herald, in regard to our prisoners r.t Andersonville, in the State of Georgia. After Mr. Clayton hai finished reading the article he introduced the following resolutions: Krsolved, In the opinion of thi3 association it is the duty of the present Administration to take immediate steps to exchange our impris or #d and suffering fellow-citizens who are held a? prisoners of war by the Confederates, and who are dying at the rate of aoti per day at only ?i>e prison. Resolved, That humanity and Christianity alike demand of this Administration, as they /faave the power to do, at once to relieve our brethren now in bondage, and again restore them to liberty. A proposition was made to postpone the con sideration of the resolutions until after the Chicago Convention. Some discussion ensued, when Mr. J. I) Lakenan excitedly rushed upon the stand, and said, "Too much importance had been given to the curly head" Mr. Lakenan was interrupted by cries of "set down," "dry up," &o. After the turmoil had subsided Mr. Lake man again proceeded t>y remarking he recog nized in this government the equality of no one wh j had curly hair. This association ig nored the right of "a negro? Here Mr. Likeman was again interrupted by most of the members starting towards the door for the purpose of leaving. He endeav ored to explain himself, but owing to the con tinued shouts of laughter it was impossible to hear what he had to say, and Mr, Lakeman rather abruptly left the stand. Tbe association then adjourned with the un derstanding that the consideration of the reso lutions should be postponed until anotner meeting. A Compi k atbhGoosb Case ?Several days since Mr. Benjamin Berkely, of the Sixth Ward, lost several geese by a number of women in the neighborhood making a raid on them, and a colored woman in Mr. B.'s em ploy followed the raiders and demanded them, but they pommeled her soundly, and she was compelled to fall back gooseless. Mr. B. then went himself and recoveied two of the geese. Mrs. Ready subsequently complained to Mr Berkely that the geese belonged to her and she wished him to let the geese out, as she was cer tain that tho^e belonging to her wonld waddle hone. Mr. Berkely refused to comply with this request, hut told her to identify the goose, to bring the case up for judicial action. Miss Catharire Ready was arrested on the charge of stealing the goose, by officer Brennan, and the i ase wss heard on Monday morniag by Jus tice Cull. A large number of neighbors being in attendance as well as one of the geese in dis pute Mrs. Ready testified that she was cer tain tbe goose belonged to her. She asked that it should be placed on the floor where she knew that it would waddle, and a peculiar waddle differing from any ordinary goose, by which waddle the could identify it, and also by a crocked neck with which it was born and car ried tbrough its gosling days. Mr. Berkely ^'as equally certain that the goose was his, and testified to its being minus a toe, and also ^ the fact, but at this jane ? J^colore<1 wom&n and Mrs. Ready got ifi Tt,? UR8 11x11 threatened to come to was in her, she flew upon the Squire s desk where, with two or three awkward flan? nJ her wings sent the justice gpapers flyinJ^yeS which way. He prompUy dismissed*he ca2? and ordered the office to be cleared, goose and ail.

This Department was formerly but t-? o st..ries high, but with the increase of busi ngs*. it was found necessary to add a new story on it, and now the accommodations are IiODd to be so limited that it is necessary to erect an additional wing on the south of t?ie present structure, which will be two stories huh, and c< nt&Lu tlx rooms and a hall on each ?tory. _ Pil'IRHAM.IS'^, WtN'OW SHADE", At.?

Those citizens of the town who are subject to the approaching draft to furnish soldiers for our army, and who desire to avoid that service, are in vited to join in the following self insuring scheme: Everv citizen who !? liable to be drafted can de posit the sum of One Hundred Dollars in the Bank of Commerce. The whole sum so deposited will constitute a fund for the exclusive benefit of those of thedepositors who mar be drafted The scheme will work thu?: Should there he one hundred depositors, for instance, and only twenty of them be drafted, eighty would be protected from service bv paying one huudted dollars each, while the whole ten thousand dollars wo i d be distributed in sums of five hundred dollars eac^ lo the twenty who were dratted. With that 'hey could obtain substitutes or keep the money and go into Bervice. at their own option. Of courae the real result will be so v .ried from the one h re given as an illnstra ion an to make it more or less beneficial to the drafted parties ; but there is this absolute c. " <inty about it: that every drafted man will get tue whole of his money back, with the almost equal certainty of nore than double that sum, and a probability of his re ceiving a sua of notl*B* than five hnndreddoVars, In this scheme there can he no juggling, no pre cedence of favorite individnals, or tricks played off upon the unsuspecting.
