powers such as were ' necessary only for
the confederacy. '-The powers not dele
gated to the United States by tho Consti
tution, nor prohibited by it to the States,
arc reserved to the States respectively, or
to the people." The Constitution must be
strictly construed and rigidly euforced,
that it umy be perpetuated, and good will
secured from all parts of out vast country.
Neither section, nor Stato must ask for,
or submit to any thing by the .nation, tut
what is strictly implied in tho compact.
Xeithor muit StateB or sections interfere
with each other in the exercise of their
natural or constitutional rights. The South
must not ask Congrass to extend or per
petuate slavery iu the territories. Neither
must the North presume to interfere with
tho peculiar institutions of the respective
sister States. But ly mutual forbearaucc
and strict adherenco to the letter of the
law, secure "a faithful allegiance to the
Constitution," 'aud thus perpetuate the
Union of these States to the latest pos
terity. "Ia f-'tate policy we zealously advocate
Retrenchment and Reform."- The rapid
ly increasing expenses of our State gov
ernment, must be kept within economical
bounds. All extravegance aud waste, and
sinecures to favored partizans, must be
abolished. In State, as in private affairs
tho most rigid economy Ehould be practis
ed in conformity with having every branch
of fovcrnraent efficieut. To accomplish
this desirable object, needed Ejorm must
be adopted, especially iu tho choice of pub
lic servants. Tho old system of awarding
partizans with public offie simply because
of his zeal in his party, must bo reformed.
Public officers should be chosen, as men
in privarobusine88 are chosen, because of
their peculiar fitness to discharge the du
ties of tho offices. No man has claims
upon any offico. He may have yuaUftca
tions, qut not claims, llerciu is great re
form needed. Partizans may labor in
their old parties for office and its spoils.
But to the American Democratic Tarty,
looking only for the good of our country,
does it belong to reform such abuses.
Among other matters demanding immedi
ate legislative attention is "a modiCcation
of tho present oppressive system of taxa
tion." So long cs property is made the
basis of taxation, all property should be
equally taxed,' but men should not bo re
quired to pay taxes upon their debts, nor
upon property they do not own. The per
petuation of our "liberal system of Pub
lic Schools," with .such improvements as
experience and time may suggest, should
demand the constant attention of our peo
ple and legislature. While wo would re
quire tho free uso of tho Biblo in all our
public schools, "without nolo or comment,'
all sectarianism should bo scrupulously
prevented. Tho public sehool fund must
not bo apportioned, as has been asked by
the Roman Catholics,' and thus make our
public schools sectarian, but our schools,
supported by tho public, but be public,
and opca to all. They should be schools
too, in which the poorest and richest can
secure thorough education, aud become

PRINCIPLES OF. TIIK AMERICAN
. PARTY OF OHIO.
I. The unlimited freedom of Religion dis
: connected with politics hostility to ecclesias
tical influcucpa upon liio affairs of government
equality of rights to all naiuruliatd Emi
griiuU who era thoroughly Americanized, and
cwo no tampor&l allegianeo, by reason of their
raligwn ; higher than that to the Constitution.
II. No interference with tho rights of citi
rf iiship aftendy acqnired by Foreigners, and
the protection of law to all who honestly emi
Ifrato from lovo of liberty ; but tho exclusion of
fiu ei;n paupers and felons, and a refusal to
illend ths right of suffragu to all who conic
hereafter until they shall haTs'rcsided 21 yenrs
in tho United Stales and complied with the
IU. Opposition to all political organizations
coinpoocd "exclusively of Foreigners, and to
foreign Military Companies, and to all attempts
to exclude tho Bible from Schools supported by
IV. Slave ry is local not national : we op
pose its extension in any of our territories, and
the incroase of ii political power by tho aJ
mission ijito the Union of any Slave Stato or
otherwise; and we demand of the Oeneral Gov
ernment an immcdiato redress of tho great
wrongs whioh haTO been inflicted upon the
cihiko of Frcdom and tho American character
by the repeal of the Missouri Compromise, and
the introduction of Slavery into Kansas iu vio
lation of law, by the force of arms, and the de
struction of the elective franchise.
V. In hiimblfl imitation of tho wisdom of
Washington, we oppose nil intervention in the
affairs of Foreign States ; yet en all proper oc
casion, wo will not withhold our Sympathy
from niiy people aspiring to be free.
VI. We support American Industry nnd ge
nius against the ndverso policy of Foreign na
tions and facilities to internal nnd external
commerce by tho improvement of rivers and
harbors and the construction of national roads
uniting the various soctions of the Union.
Til. Tho Union of these States should be
made perpetual by a faithful allegianeo to the
VIII. In State policy wejsoalously advocate
Retrenchment and Iteform a modification of
tho present opresiva '(system of Taxation and
a liberal system of Public Schools.

, That oar exposition of tho American
Platform may not bo uuwarantably extend
ed, we purppsc iu this article to glancu at
tho remaining four planks.
Hlii humble imitation of the wisdom of
Washington," so clearly set forth iu his
Farewell Address, wo oppose all interven
tion in tho affairs of Foreign States. Our
government should be not.ODly ly Americans,-
America, but all "entangling al
liances" by which our government may
becorao embroiled about the affairs of other
nations; and all filibustering schomcs, by
which our people will get involved, and
thereby lead the cation into unrighteous
wars and conquests, we unqualifiedly op
pose. The true object of government is
' 3 protect tho pcoplo in the full eujoyuieut
of thoir just rights. .Wars, therefore, ex
cept solely for, protection, arc altogether
wrong. The extent of our area should be
incrcaeod only by peaccabla negotiation,
annexing only such provinces na will main
tain a truly "republican government," and
by whioh annexation, they and ub will be
mutually benefited. At tho sama time,
knowing tho full blossings of freedom our
selves, nnd desiring that nil men may be
ttjually happy, wo not only cheerfully ad
mit to tho enjoyment of our government
nnd land, "and the protection of law, all
who honestly inimigrato from love of lib
erty," but "yet, on all proper occasions,
wo will uot withhold our sympathy from
tiny peonlo aspiring to bo freo." . -.
. Tho indirect system of taxation, which
has always been, unod to provido money to
defray tho strictly nccassary expenses of
the public-tervice, and to payoff the pub
lic debt of tho nation, wa would coutinue.
. Aad.by such a tariff, judiciously adjusted,
: would wo give support and preference, to
American .industry., .As wo are rapidly

He Deaie3.--Tlie Proofs .V
The Komish Orgau in this city,- some
dajM since, perhaps through iuadvoriifUtcJ
gavo vent to the true sentiments of its'
party, and denounced, without stint,.. that.
worthy class of American citizens, who,
though" born in foreign lands, protest
against the llomish church.' We felt bound
to jirotcet.this class',: as wa do ther good
citucns, against such unwonwo; attacks.
and have endeavored to expose t hi efiroij
tery or, tne urgan. oince flceuij: ve jwi
odium. -in which true Americans Jiold such
sculfmcnts ngitin'st worthy foreign born
'citieus7'thd Union 'hciruai Jtlw luda'lly
to deny the correctness f j onr quotation
o( his article, besides applying to ouf 'hum
ble selves divers ungentlcmnuly epithets.
fNow, we are not in the habit of stating
facts without knowing them to bo such;
and our word is considered sufficient, with
out giving attesting proof; but to show
tho' prevarication of the Romish Organ, we
shall, without applying to the Editor his
favorite epithets of "perjured coundrel,
"unprincipled old lying hypocrite," and
such like epithets as' are constantly fur
nished the readers of the Union, we shall
here give, copy from the original article,
and our quotation. The community will
see at once what base -. attacks have been
made upon foreign born protcstaut citi
zens, to what desperate expedients the
Union is driven to support its warning par
ty ) and that our quotation was altogether
correct. ' " ,
In the "Pally Evening Uniou" of June
25th, was published nn article, headed
"Know Nothing Meeting what was done,
and what is to be done." ' In that article
appears the following words
"Another report is that naturalized for
eigners who hate the Catholics bud enough
to cut their own throats for tho aake of.
degrading them aro to bo initiated hereaf
ter, and one of the members boasts that
60 of this class will bo initiated at the
next meeting. A foreigner when ho be
comes naturalized swears that he is attach
ed to the principles of the Constitution of
tho United States. One of these princi
ples is religious liberty, and it is a part of
his oath that ho will not make roligion a
test of holding office. Tho man who has
taken that oath, and then takes another
that ho will novcr vote for a man for offico
who holds to the Catholic religion is a pcr-
jurcd scoun mll It temptation offers,
look out for him in the Penitentiary. If
any there are so infamously base, they
should be kicked with a pair of sharp toed
boots clear out of the United States. A
free country, whero individual faith and
regard for legal obligations is yet consid
ered as entitled to some respect, is no
place for such unprincipled scamps."
Commenting upon that article, in our
issue of June 27th, we usod the following
words, and fcriafi'm extract :
