To little Brown all honor is due, for
her noble conduct in declaring for hu
manity and Democracy, last Monday,
by the election of every township of
ficer, from the ranks of the True Dem
ocrats. Other hearts beat with enthu
siasm at the thought, that there are
some patriots left, who are not afraid
to declare theii principles in open day.
'Tis to such men as these of Brown
that the American people must look for
defenders at the point of the bayonet,
when occasion requires it. We can
not depend upon the prowling midnight
scoundrels, who meet at a certain place
not far distant, when honest men are
enjoying that rest, from their labor, that
the God of nature has provided for
them.
The election in Brown proves what
we know to be true, that when the De
mocracy organize, they are invincible.
May the Democracy of Brown live

More Exposures.
[From the Dayton Empire.]
Editobs Empire : Enclosed you will
find correspondence between Council
No. 42, of Know Nothing aud myself, in
the form of charges preferred against me,
and my reply, which you will do me the
favor to publish. ; I request this from
the fact that members of the order have
reported amongst outsiders that I have
been expelleJ; who, not knowing the
reasons, may attribute it to causes that
do not exist; therefore I think in justice
to myself the whole matter should bit
laid before the public, that they may
judge of the facts for themselves.
That I am now an outsider, I think
there can be but little doubt.
Respectfully Yours,
J. A. WALTERS.
honorable men, who joined out
Gentlemen, when first I joined your
order, I supposed the object of the as
sociation was intended merely as a tem
porary expedient to check the dishonora
ble means frequently resorted to on the
part of politicians to obtain' foreign
votes; but how sadly have I been de
ceived. This question of Knom Nothing
ism and its principles, as they are being
developed from day to day, iuvolves
more of the future welfare and liberty
of this country, than many of you gener
ally suppose, The framers of our gov
ernment were men who had bitterly ex
perienced the great tyrmy and injustice
of other governments had studied well
those fundamental principles of human
right and equality so necessary to hap
piness, and we were pre eminently pre
pared to institute a government free
from civil and religious intolerance a
government that should receive theap
plause of all just men and become a
burning light of liberty to the world
a government the justice of whose prin
ciples should make the very thrones of
Europe tremble, and '-become the fund
hope of the oppressed of every clime."
How have they succeeJed ? The annals
of ancient and modern history present
no account of any government rising in
power, numbers and influence like this.
Our institutions giving greater freedom
and security to its people than that of
any other, attracted the attention, con
fidence and sympathy of the democrat
ic masses of other countries, who sought
oui shores by thousands, periling life
and fortune, that they might escape ly
ronny and oppression, and enjoy civil
and religious liberty. We extend to
them a hearty welcome gave them the
same privil'ges we enjoyed made them
our friends, and they hue proved irtia
to our wisdom and generosity, by rie
feuding our institutions, shoulder to
sltoulder with the American born citizeu
upon every battlefield from the Revolu
tion to the present time, and never an
Arnold wasfouud amongst them.

infamy together, is the strong desire ol
its leaders for office, and their appeals
to the religious prejudices of its mem
bers. I have now given you some of mv

Effects of Whig Rule—The New
Effects of Whig Rule—The New York Canals an the Railroads.
Gov. Clark, ol New York, has sent
a message to the Legislature of that
State in reference to the great decrease
in canal tolls, ow ing to the large amount
oi ireignt carried on tne raiiroaos. lie
recommends an imposition of canal
tolls upon the railtoad tonnage on all
ihe railroads diverting business from
the canals.
He speaks, in gloomy forebodings,
of the financial prospects of the State,
and anticipates a large deficit, and ot
course a new public debt. A few years
ago we heard of nothing but the en
largement of the Erie canal, and the
universal prosperity that was to follow.
The Constitution ot the State was
over-ridden the Democrats turned out
of office, and the great enlargement
commenced with all its debts and cor
ruptions. Now we have the final in
this special message ot the Governor.
Black mail is now advised to be levied
upon the railroads to save the sinking
ship. Imbecile and financial quackery,
it is well said, have got to a pretty pass
in uie Dtaie oi new lorn, when a
Whig Governor is compelled to make
O. States.
They have a good joke un Dr. Agan
of Chicago; he is a great land opera
tor, as well as a most successful physi
cian. The doctor prescribed some
pills for a lady. She asked how the;
were to be taken? 'A quarter down,'
said the Doctor, 'and the balance in
one, two, and three years.'
