Among the civic glories of some thirty years ajo the Fourth of July demonstration ut Tammany <*cl:pso>l all others ill the iplador with which it was conducted. The faithful paraded with buck tails ::i their nats, au.l ft. Tamil.any himself was represented as appearing in tho Mesh an a war (minted Indian, drawn through th'j streets in a triumphal car And the saiut was represented not by -i-tne hired supernum 'rary, paid to exhibit himself on that occasion on!y, but by m?n of position and inlluence, and it is said that a gentleman of even the standing aud character of Matln-w I_ Davis aspired to the representation ol the I holy red mau, and to be carted about in all the glories of | red paint, and the pride, pomp aud circumstance offea Uteri: , and jingling little bWls, aud witinpuin bells and calu mete, aud hatchet*.audvttwr theatric?1 trumpery,?uch ai great ludian chiefs are presumed to wear, Instead of there being aiiy oration, or d?-fluing of positlou, at old "ftumiiauy, there wits a "long t*lk," for when the actors played Indian, they mimicked the red man all over. Their standing toasts were equally imbued with the Indian spirit, and the pipe of peace, and the buried bstchet, and the Ureal Spirit, aiid the war path, and the trail were made to d> duty in the most metaphorical confusion. It was in the order of eloquence callc<i rigmarole?regular red man talk, and no sham, and, to sty the least of it, <iuite as BiiAzh like the language of the sens of the forest 03 in Forrest's "Metamora " Alas, how cbauged slur* Tarnntaay changed these pleasant fooleries into fooleries mt a more mischievous character. Hut tbey, too, have had their day, like the fooleries that preceded them. There was a time when It was a privilege to be a member of the Tammany Society ; for, whatever mixture of se|. flshness it had is its composition, it was chary of its fhvors, and guarded against admitting the general innb tato its councils. It was in these latter days, when the Van Borens and the Fowlers having obtained admittance, tanmediateiy attempted to till the old council chamber with their personal adherents, aud 'earli success of the kind waa a new death rub to the Institution, till ft gra dually subsided into the pitiabl' condition it now exhibits?its old members absenting themselves, aud its new ones prevent only to make mlschier and confusion where harmony and concord once prevailed. Wtitle wo trust that the good saint is happily enjoying nis* In 4 mil paradise in the peculiar way in which Indians are supposed to enjoy tuemselves In that sphere of existence, we fear that his spirit must he troubled with the strifes aud vexations which so sorely disturb the congregation that worship under the protection of bis name. Besides, though we have not at hand the genealogy of bis salntsbip, yet if our memory serve* as, while be occupied bis earthly hunting grounds, be was a tolerably good Pennsylvania iaditu, who never had an tfea of being made a saint of. 80 ho may not he aalnt after all; aoJ thus uot having a salut's power to watch over the destinies of Indians, whether mock or real, in this world, the troubles of the Wigwan may be accounted for on the ground that he retlly ha? no protecting Infiucnce over them, t'orhaps it would bo as well for the frequenters of the Wigwam to select tome thcr saint to intercede in their trouble*. Saint R?d Jacket would hardly <1o on account of his hatred of missionaries and cold water, ana St. I^Wb, wUv Wtw sent Into tbe land of spirits by Uot. Julia son, was t >0 ferocious while on earth to expect any intercession on his part. And it is a perplexing dilemma whether the Wigwam is worwy m an t+.u or tao inaian u^i is wortuy * the W.gwam.

In your paper of tbia data ia published a of the democratic papers in this State, and the named and numbers of them respectively m for Douglas and Breckinridge. There are several errors in this list according to ray information. The Genesee Dtmocrat, claimed as for Douglas, to for Rrecklnridgc and Ltne. asm-ell as the Bufttlo J'ott anil Scbeneilady A>uw. The Kewburg TtlfjrapK and Saratoga SttUmd (democratic) denounce the action of tbedclegates from this state, but put no names at the bead of their eolumus. The Highland (I'cekskill) Demarat has since August teat advocated Sain Houston. The Hoiuitou men will make no compromise* with any of the trailing politician*. They will sustain the constitution and the L'mon. and go for good men rather than partisans, aud tliey repudiate Dm maxim thai "to tho victors belong the spoils." With you they believe a political revolution is going on, and anew party is forming to take tli? plac? of the old ones, to be based on different principles (Tom those in existence. They believe that (?en. Houston Is the man for Ibe times, and (It to be their staudard bearer. At Hie same time they are not manwursb'.ppers, but believe that the principle is good, aud the revolution must go on even If ttem Houston tie to-morrow.

Then I weut down in search o the captain, and upon going into tbe cabin we imrne , dlately camo in cootlict. Captain Burr, who wait a IT?g; ablcbodlod man, fought hard with me for seve i r*J mlnuton; but at last I brought him down, and he. too, I waa soon dead.
