Importance nlt iched to tho new Issues pre
sented by tho American party, nothing is
mnru apparent than the fact that the Slave,
ry question trans.-ends all others in the
magnitude of the results of its fin.il solu
tion. Wo have every reason to congratulate
ourselves that our party has assumed on this
question, tho only position which em insure
the safety of the South, nnd tho perpetuity
of tho Union. No Van Burcn, Sumner,
(.'base, Hale, Rcedcr, nor Wilson, can lind an
abiding place upon the American platform.
We have accomplished more than any politi
cal organization has hitherto done in driving
from us all such men. We have, it is true,
exhibited n greater devotion to principle,
truth nnd justice to the Soulli, nnd to the
Union, than wu havo policy. In adopting a
pro-Shivery platform, wo have given up nil
nnli-Slavery strength. For this very reason,
when our position is thoroughly understood
and we are relieved of tho prejudicial forms
which still to some extent encumber our par
tisan tiunle of organization, we w ill surely re
ceive the support of all honest men, who
caring naught for niern partisan success, have
no nims nor ends, save those of unselfish
It is hard for un American to believe that
men in this land of freedom, where nil the
hopes of our country are centered in the vir
tue, honesty, intelligence nnd patriotism of
our people, that her men will desert n party
because it niny be weak, or act with one
simply because it is strong; yet we sen every
day in the anti American press the idea ever
advanced that tho American party lias and
can have no strength at tho North, that it has
been defeated at the South, and, therefore, it
is unworthy the aid and countenance of
Southern men. Contrast, if you will, the
Johnson Platform adopted here in Memphis,
a Southern city, by the so called " Democrat
ic" (.'lull, and published in the Appeal, with
the American Platform adopted nt Philadel
phia. The former merely states that the
creed and principles of tho Democratic Haiti
more Platform of 1S5J arc reasserted nnd
re-indorsed. How does his Southern Demo,
cratic Platform disposu of Iho Kansas-Ne.
hraska net, which has come into being since
1852, nnd at this moment involves tho desti
ny of the Union. From the platform adopt
ed here, no living man can lell w hether the
Johnsoiiito Democracy of Tennessee nre
with the Syracuse Softs, or llronson and
Dickinson Hards, of New York, on the pres
ent issues arising out of the eYcat slavery
Any honest man must see, feel, and know
that the sole object in view when these mm.
committal platforms are adopted is, to secure
the support of both the Hards and lliu Softs
to hold on to Hie purchased strength of
the Administration, and still to effect a cor
rupt ami deceptive alliance with thu Bronson,
Dickinson and Stanton Democrats of the
Union. In other word strength, success,
the spoils, are invariably the producing causes
of such partisan conduct and policy, u Iiilo
truth, principle and patriotism nro utterly ig
nored. The meaningless Memphis "Demo,
cratic" (!) platform is simply designed to
sweep Tennessee and tho Union w ith the fil
thy besom of Johnsoiiism in 1650.
So different has been the conduct of the

a National contest, that to-day there is not n

I advise no step backwards; I would not
sacrifice an iota of principle for tlio most
brilliant partisan or personal success; but
that right and justice may triumph, that un
mitigated dcuiiigougeism may not longer rule
our political parties and control tho destinies
of our Slate and nation, that wo may secure

While it is undeniably tine that if every

From th Itlclimoml Wlilir.J
We have had frequent occasion heretofore
lo cull the attention of tho Southern public
to the character and protendon of the Ger.
man population which ha settled in our
midst. We at one lime produced tlio consli.
tiitlon nnd by-laws of an infidel Gorman nsso.
ciatioii which was alleged to rxist here in the
city of Richmond, but tho existence or which
was denied by several German correspondents
of the Enquirer. The denial, however, had
no effect in changing our convictions nn the
subject, for the principle nnd objects of Raid
association coincided exactly with the princi.
pies nr.d objects of similar associations in
Louisville and other Western cities, where
the German population is t.inch greater than
in Uielimond, nnd where, of course, their
boldness and insolence nre enhanced In pro.
portion to their mnubciji nnd strength. Tho
object of those German associations wherever
they exist, is identically the same. It is, In
brief, to effect n change in Ihe character of
our political institutions, to promote the
spread of infidel doctrines, nnd to accomplish
Ihe overthrow of Southern slavery.
Wo have referred lo this subject nt the
present time with the particular view of
bringing to the notice of ;uir readers the sub.
stance of a speech delivered in Western Tex.
as, by n German orator by the name of Win
pretelit. We are informed by tho New Or.
leans Creole, that the principal object of Mr.
W.'s speech was to denounce the ovcr.hcaring
disposition of native Americans in Western
Texas. And in the course of it hu endeavor
ed lo establish Ihe fact that the native Alitor
iean had iio right to make anv pretensions in
Western Texas at all! That that country
(Western Texas) had been settled first by Ihe
Germans, and, consequently, that the Ger.
mans had the frst claim upon it! And in
conclusion of his address Mr. Wippretchct
made the following appeal to his German
brethren, lo which we inuto the special inten
tion of tho render, lie said '-Nov let us
manfully und liimly oppose Hie arrogant us
sumptions. -md over-bearing of Hu so natives;
let us uprise the farther cj-lcns inn of this slate
li'it.'ini; in.n;H in Western Texas, for we
have cultivated mid settled this country be
fore the native thought about doing so."
Such is tho arrogant tone of this Texas
German, and such the treasonable counsels
he addresses to his German brethren, right
under tlio nose and in tho immediate pre
sence of Southern slave holders. Bom and
I eared ill a foreign land, will, his prejudices
all against our system of Southern slavery, it
is no wonder that he should advise his com
rude to look upon Southern slaveholders
with suspicion and ablw,, ,.;,,,.,,. ,, ri,H;B, u,ui.
settlement in the midst of him and his. Thi
is natural enough; but is it not the most un
natural thing in the world that n great party
should eisl, even here at the South, compos,
ed for thi most part of natives and slave
holders, that apprehend no danger from such
a class of foreign immigrant-.! And not only
apprehending no dnin-er from them, but ready
anil w illing to invi st them with political
power, ami make them rulers over our native
born slave-holding population! Yet such is
the melancholy and alarming fact and one
that is boasted of und gloried over by the en
tire Democratic party nt tlio South. Con
liniiallv prating of the perils that beset
Southern institutions, and continu dlv inipiit.
ing disloyalty to Southern Whigs and Know
Nothini!, and yet defending, protecting, nnd
taking to their embr ;ce all the refuse nnd
scum that is wafted to our shores from ever)
portion of the habitable globe. And when,
too, this foreign udiKtion to our population,
as a general thing, is known to be im
biied Willi the vilest Abolition notions, and
will only aid in swelling the already formula,
ble and portentous hosts that aro waring with
fanatic zeal upon the rights und honor of the
Southern people. This, wo repeat, is a strange
fact, and worthy to be pondered seriously by
ull who feel that they havo a country to servo
n well ns u party to obey.
If the truth enuhl be reached, wo venture
to say that niucty-iiino out of every hundred

OmnixoF Foolscap Paper R i well
known that Charles . of England, granted
numerous monopolies for the support" of his
government. Among others was the priiih-oe
of mnctifacturitig paper. The water mark of
the finest was the royal arms of England.
The consumption ol" this article was great ul
this time, and lorlunes Mere made bv those
who bad purchased the exclusive right to
vend it. This.ai ig other monopolies, was
set aside by the parliament that brought
Charles to thes-afTold: atid bv way of show,
ing Iheir contempt for the king, they ordered
the royal arms to be taken from the paper,
and a fool, with bis cap and bells, t . !,.

RELIGION AND POLITICS.
As the Philadelphia Sun very justly re
mark', a singular hallucination nppenrs to
have seized the minds of some of the editorial
fraternity, ns well as a portion of tho comma
nily, for which we are at a loss to account.
It is alleged that a clergyman, by the obliga
tions nf his sacred office, Is not only virtually
prohibited from mingling in politics or sccu.
Inr mailt rs of nny kind, but that he must nlso
refrnin from expressing his opinion on such
subjects, with n view to direct or modify tho
nction of those over whom his influence may
extend. In other words, ho must confine
himself to his study nnd his pulpit, and calm
ly see the world go wrong, without lifting Ids
voice cither in warning or rebuke. Acording; -to
the sages, n clergyman, when he has ones
put on the gown, censes to bo a man, nnd hns

inches thick, built of good mortar with tricks
w ell soaked, is stronger in every respect than
one sixteen inches thick built dry. The rcn
sou ol this is, that if the bricks are saturated
with water, they will not abstract from the
mortar the moisture which is necessary to its
