?Tile Republican Know-Nothlngi,"
Tho New York World calls the atten?
tion of our foreign-born citizens to the
effort now making by the Republicans at
the North, to revive the Know-Nothiug
issue, and'make anew crusade against
tho oasy admission of immigrants to the
privilege of citizenship. Tho World
charges that such Republican journals as
tho New York Times and Tribune are
zealously aiding and abetting in the re?
vival of the Know-Nothing spirit. Be
ferring to an extract from tho Now York
Times, wherein that journal objects to
"the dinging to old nationalities" which
characterizes our foreign-born citizens,
the World BIIOWS the value of the foreign
element in our . population, and pays a
deservedly high tribute to these adopted
sons of the land. It says:
"Tho Know-Nothing Republicans who
are seeking to obstruct naturalization
are not only enemies of immigrants, hut
enemies of the country. In wealth,
population, and development, the coun?
try is 'at least thirty years in advanoo of
where it'would how Btand if it had grown
only the natural increase of tho nativo
population! Our Irish and German in?
habitants multiply faster than the na?
tives, as any person may convince him?
self by observing the multitudes of chil?
dren that swarm about their dwellings.
Having been educated toa lower scale
of comfort than prevails in this country,
they bring their old habits of frugality
with them, and marry and multiply with?
out any fears for the future. But even
assuming that they are no more prolific
than the natives, it would bo easy to show
that the population of 1790, loft to grow
from its own stook, without accessions
from abroad, Would 'have only reached
about the same figures in 1870 that our
population had aotually attained in 1840.
One of the chief inducements whioh has
drawn foreigners to this country is. their
easy admission to the rights of citizen?
ship. Our marvellous growth and na?
tional greatness are the direct fruit of
the liberal policy of the Democratic par?
ty, which the Republican Kuow-No
things are attempting to overthrow.
"The Times complains that our natu?
ralized citizens do not immediately for?
get tho land of their birth. It is credit?
able to their character that they do uot.
If Americans should emigrate in large
numbers to Brazil or Australia, they
would undoubtedly feel towards ono
another os Irishmen and Germans do in
this country. They would be justly sus?
pected of moral degeneracy and loss of
ennobling natural affections, if they did
not continue to cherish a patriotic at?
tachment to the land of their birth. We
dishonor both ourselves and our foreign
boru citizens, when we aak them to do
what we should consider unnatural and
despicable iu Americans who had
ohanged their nationality. Our immi?
grants transmit to their offspring tho
same virtuous sentiment which renders
one's birth-place, and tho soil which
contains the bones of our parents, dear;
but their offspring being boru in this
country, their natural affection is given
undivided to their actual home. lu tho
second generation all are natives, and
the graud-children become so blended
by marriage with other stocks, that all
truces of a separate origin are effaced.
Even if the alleged clannishness wera an
evil, it ought to bo regarded with gene?
rous tolerance, in consideration of the
praise-worthy fceliug from which it
springs, its transieut duration, and the
great advantages which result to the
country from immigration.
"But we deuy that it is an ovil. We
had Irish and German regiments iu the
late wat. It would bo eusy for the uew
Know-Nothing organs to say that this
kind of association was clannish, and
that in forming such regiments and bri?
gades 'the fact that all citizens aro alike
was ignored.' But no regiments did
better service. None offered their lives
a more cheerful sacrifice, or came back
with their ranks moro terribly thiuued
by tho casualties of battle. Wherever
there was danger, those brave regiments
were in tho front. Whenever a despe?
rate charge was to bo made against bat?
teries belching Uro, they rushed forward
to be mowed down like grass. Their
thinned ranks and tattered flags, as they
marched through our streets after the
close of the war, should havo protected
them forever from Know-Nothiug as?
saults, and insulting, impertinent re?
minders that they 'ignore tho fuot that
all citizens aro alike.' "
THE FOUR LARGEST CATTLE IN THE
WOULD.-Wo learn from tho Pough?
keepsie correspondent of the New York
Evening * Telegraph that Mr. George
Aryault, a well-to-do Duchess County
farmer, who takes great pride in raising
sleok, fat cattlo, has raised tho four fat
teat steers in tho world. Tho lightest
ono of them weighs 3,300 pounds, and
tho heaviost over 4,000 pounds. Mr.
Ay raul t sold these cattlo to Mr. Talor, of
Fulton Market, Now York, for $800
each, $3,200 for all.
Tho New York Commercial Advertiser
(moderate Republican) says: "They are
making a very ugly record against that
eminent Christian soldier, Gen. How?
ard. It is a very sad thing to contem?
plate that our most pure, gifted and

gave the ?ame chanco that it gave Spain,
whereupon Sam Randall, in a fiery and

out from tho Democratic side:
"Whore? When? Name tho time and

then tho members roared, and the
Speaker rapped his gavel until it broke,

Btriking the Clerk on the head, and there
was what Joo Bagstock would call "a
dovilish jolly timo" all round; but where,
when and how the Government has given
Cuba tho samo chanco as Spain, remains
aa much of a conundrum ns ever.
Threo persons connected with tho ro
ceut caso of tho men who went about
London in women's clothos hnvo died
suddenly. The circumstances would bo
very strange, oven if it were not rumored
that poison had boen called in to bailie
justice. It is generally believed by
Lord Arthur Clinton's friends that he
completed the tale of his misdeeds by
committing suicide. Lives of dissipa?
tion and "pleasure," such as that which
he led, seldom last very long. His
funeral was strictly private. Tho only
attendauts wore the Duke of Newcastle
and Lord Thomas Clinton and tho
solicitor and physician of the deceased.
The pince of burial is left unmarked.
And so radicalism causes its sectional
hate towards oven the dead soldiers of
the Union in Southern soil. On motion of
Mr. Shanks, of Indiana, the army bill is
amended by appropriating S20.U00 "for*

Northern cemeteries;" uono of the loil
suggesting that perhaps tho doad in
Southern cemeteries lind au equal right
to the ornamentation of trees and
shrubs about their graves, or perhaps
oveu a greater right, seeing that, five to

The great Saguenay (Cauada) fire ex?

Tho total number of families rendered
homeless and entirely destitute is 555,
and 1-16 families have lost houses aud
other buildings. Seven persons, it is
known, wore burnt to death; and many
others were seriously injured. The
great proportion of those who escaped
death did so only by flying to wells,
cellars and deep holes in the earth, or
by taking refuge in their boats and
pushing iuto the stream.
FASHIONS FOU CHILDREN'S HATS AND
BOOTS.-A New York authority says that
a charming novelty for young girls is a
siimnier hat of light bluo or piuk Bilk,
with a kind of coiffure of embroidered
Swiss muslin edged with Valenciennes
luce. A quilling of silk surrounds the
crown; bow and streamers aro at tho
back. Bronzed boots aro worn with
whito drcssos, but black kid boots, cut
only half high, ornamented with white
stitching, and either buttoned or laced
on the sides, aro more generally adopted.
CENSUS RETURNS.-The United States
Census Omeo has scut out a circular to
United States Marshals, directing them
to give to tho press tho total population
