Patriotism of Philadelphians.--At a meeting of the People's party, held at Philadelphia, Sept. 4th, allusion being made to the present war and the necessity of sustaining the Government firmly, a motion was made and adopted, amid general applause, to appoint a committee to wait on Alderman Patchell and request him to administer the oath of allegiance to the whole body of the citizens collectively. The alderman responded with alacrity. The citizens all stood up, with hats off and hands uplifted, and with solemnity and emphasis the oath was administered. At the close there was an outburst of vehement cheering. The meeting evinced the determination to assert the authority of the Republic everywhere, and exact loyalty from every man as a bounden duty.--N. Y. Commercial, Sept. 5.
