RATIOS ALII Y OF THE DEX9C11 AI.C FAKTT.
It i a favorite custom of K.ucw-Notbin$
apcakers and newspapers to cite tbe differences
of opinion existing among a portion of the
leading Democrat! of tbe Union on some of the
questions of policy, which divide the county),
Bin' th-n tnumph.aut.iy to claim that there is no
nationality in such a party. The argument 0!
Gen. Habbis in answer to this apecial plea of
all the Know-Nothing speakers, and especially
to Col. Hattob, bif competitor, is admirable
axul conclusive. It triumphantly vindicate?
the nationality and constitutional couaerva
tiam of the Democratic party, and ahoull be
poncere. by every voter before he caits hit
suffrage to strike down that party which ii the
palladium of our rights under the Constitution,
and thua to give joy to every party opposed to
its principles and pilicy throughout the Union,
whether it be called American, Kaow-Nothirg
r Black Republics'!.
Tb.it argument may be thua briefly atatec :
It it true that tnere are D mocratt who diflVr
in opinion with the m&joruy of the party ci
great leading questions. Yet it it equally trie
that thit great party hat heretofore been aufl;
ciestly national and unid to engraft its poli
cy upon the Governtr.er.t a policy so w aid
triaeapbantly successful that it hat elevated our
country to a state of prosperity and renown
unexampled ia the history of the world a pol
icy so unequivocally aafe that even our oppo
nents in th South propose no change, except! 1 g
in the hopeless matter cf distribution. Piffcr
eocea of opinion upan matters of detail are not
remarkable in the hirory of any party, tie .
members of which determine questions
themselves. When pr-iea,however, are sworr,
to hold to certain dogmas, it is not remarkable
that they all agree fully ami entirely in their
I, may be true also that there are certain
men is the North, claiming to be Democrats,
who are almost as unworthy of the confidence
of the Southern people as the Northern witg
of the Know-Nothing party. Br it 1 equally
trot that there never has been an instance n
the history of the Government where tbe Sou:h
heeded aid for the protection cf her rights un
der the Constitution, that a majority of the
NorxneiTi Democracy has not stood by ber and
votec to protect and maintain those rights,
when they would have been stricken djwn
without their ail.
Has there ever been any other ptrty in the
North that has, in a single instance, aided us
in the dark hours of o lr peril r Nooe ! Writ
what degree of patience, then, can the South
ern people the people of Tennessee listen 10
a arraignment of the soundness of that North
ern Democracy to whom they are to deeply in
debted for the preservation of their rights, in
every dark hour of trouble through which the
country has passed?
Where now stands the Know-Nothing party
of the Ntjrth? Where is its capacity to aid
the South ia asserting and maintaining its
principles? So completely has Northern
Know-Nothingism sunk into Abolitionist.,
that it has not been able to return a single
member to the next Congress. In the last
Congress its followers numbered 91 ; but a larLf
Majority of those, elected as such, voted
against the South upon every question involv
ing our rights directly or remotely. None cf
these facta can be denied, for they are drawn
from the political records of the country.
Yet the people of Tennessee are gravely ard
persevcrinely asked to strike down tht Nation
al Democracy, for the purpose of feasting into
power Know-Nothingism a mere faction, con
fined to the South, and with no power bat to
divide and distract us. And u ust not the peo
ple of Tennessee see that if Koow-Xothingism
in the South and Abolitionism in the North
succeed in defeating and overwhelming the
Democratic party in the two sections, our
Government most necessarily fall into the
hands of Abolitionism that being the next
Bass, powerful political party in the country to
the Democratic party Know-Nothing! sm Lad
ing the power to aid Abolitionism in tbe work
of striking down the Democracy, but having r 0
paver to stay its incendiary hind and control
it for the honor and welfare of the country,

To Ma. GiLk.oBE : We are of opinion that
all native born Americans, who have a'tained
to the age of twenty-one years by the day of
election in August. l$55,and all foreigners, who
have beea duly nataralizd according to law,
are entitled to vote for Governor, Member of
the Legislature, and candidate for Congress,
provided they have lived, and had their homes
hi the county in which they offer to vote, six
monlhs before tbe day of election.
The uniform custom is, to allow sll native
citizens to vote, who Lave attained to the ae
of twenty-one on the oay of election, and all
foreigners who have obtained their naturaliza
tion papers before thst day. No one has
though, or beii ved it necssary that a yourg
n-.s!n should have been a citizen of the count)
Six months after he attains the age twenty
one, before he shall be entitled to vote. All
that is necessary is. that be should have resi
ded and had bis home in tbe county six months
prior to the day of election, notwithstaadtn;
he mar not have been vested or clothed with
all tht rightof citizenship, until the very da
before tbe elect on. Tbe same rule ij. plies t.
That this is tbe proper construction is mini
feetsd from the wording of the act of the As
sembly of tWJi of December, 1141. Trie act
provides, amongst other things, that '- the
judges or some oe of them, shall then ask the
person offering ho vote tbe following questions :
Are you a citizen of the State of Tennessee t
Are you twenty-one years of age? Do you
reside in this ctunly ? Hat your home been in
this coun'y stx months nxt before this day,
(the dsy of holding the election.) Have you
voted at any other time or pltr m this elec
tion? Which questions being askd and an
swered, and any othr that tbe Judges mar
think material to ascertain the q-iahbcation cf
the person offerng to vote, if the Ju It's, or a
msjority of them, are aat sfied that sa-h person
is a citizen of this Siate, that be has attained

It was contended for a time last sommer, by
some of our Know-Nothing friends, that the
State statute requiring six months residence in
the caaanty in which any one offers to vote,
should be so construed as to require natural
ized citizens to be in the county six months af
ter their naturalization papers ware obtained.
We might j .st is well r'qulre minors to be in

The act lays :
" That when any person who is not a native
