a great deal . was said about it. Sincere

long as neither political party in the cbun-
try could nay much against the Romanists,
but little headway could bo made iu oppo
sition to' Jheir encroachments, and they
became a power in the republic.
' Their very success, liowever. has been",
if not fatal to their purpose, at Ixast injuri
ous to heir interests:,, It has been mad

the United Slates, if not of forever prevent-,
ing it, They began to act as a separate
part of the people a little too soon. They
threw " off tho vei) under ' whioh they bad

before the political condition of the coun

their action being tolerated, whn onci? il
was S'-en and , un lerstood., ,.They were
fouud making alliances, with parties, and it
rerjuired no inordinate sa'gaeity to see, who
was most to profit-from such, alliances.
It was the old course of Rome, adapted to
tne Kiate oi annus in, America. . -'

nation against that tyraninal organization
which has always been the- enoray of hu

rectej to the doctrines of Romanism, whiub
no one. cares . much abou'. ,, Persons any
believe iu them without over being disturb
ed in any way. It is against the political
intrigues of the priests, that indignation
was directed. The priests rule their flocks,
and shear them loo. They cause (hem to
vote as mav seem best for .their interests
of suoii evil shepherds, and do not allow
them-auy liberty to vole as they may think
proper., The only connection that Ro
mish, religion has with this is, that it is by
an abuse of their power as ministers "of re
ligion that the priests have been enabled' to
obtain so threat a control orer those who
are foolish enough to believe, in tboir divin-

; Tho feeling against foreigners lias also
been underrated. , The , Jeeling, is strong,
and it js tho moro so because most foreign
ers' are Romanists,' Any foreigners . who
should insist on kcepins up their separate
existence in our midst, would soon, become
odious to the children, of tho soil, buf. they
wouij not.exciie so mucn alarm, by so do
ing, as has been experienced from Roman
ists thus acting. Foreign Protestants,, iu
great numbers, aud by forming themselves
into exclusive societies, might do some j
mischief; but they would, in. the long run, ,
set rather offensively than . maliciously. .'
Their proaeedingi would lass injure our
interests than they would annoy our pride.
But it is very different with foreign Roman
ists, whose exclusive unions are repugnant
to tho American people in every way.
Those unions, whatever may have been
their .cause, are sure to be, Inroad against
the weltare ot tho Uopublie., . The people
feel this, and without the least iuteniiou of
meddling with the rights of conscience,
they have determined that there shall bean
put to those" iudanements for the. worahip
of Rsm.snists nnd foreigners - which have
made of. those classes of our population the
arbiters in moro than one .of our national
elections. "" It is plain enough that sucb is
