A clothes line in yonder garden
Goes wandering among the trees,
And on ii two very long stockings
Are kicking the evening breeze;
And a tot of lancy dry goods.
Whose nature 1 cannot define,
Are wildly and merrily Hupping
About that same old line.

And a very sly young lady,
At the parlor window sews ;
And 1 rather conclude if you tried it,
You'd fiud she'd fit into tliem ho&e;
She's only a halt' length picture,
Foreshortened below the breast, rope
But the- dry-goods which dance one tight
Out yonder, just muke up the rest.

You'd think her too good lor earth;

And how uncommonly taper
Those stockings go off at the to.-s.

of John Wesley !!!
We publish to-day the portion of a
letter ot l'rolessor Long-street, and de-
tire to call Uio particular attention ol
our readers to it, as a bold and manly
exposition ot the lnlamous and cor
ruptins tende.icies of Know Nothins-
ism.
Professor L. is one of the most elo
quent and popular divines in the Soutli
western States, and has lou been con
sidered the head of the Methodist
church iu that section of the country
Ho exposes with a bold and masterly
hand the awful consequences that must
inevitably follow the success ot this
God-defy inr, infidel combination.
"In June last, I lud just heard of a
new organization in tins country se-
cret in its movements, and going under
the head of Know Nothings, it:
principles l understand to be opposi
tion to (Jatliolics and foreigners, to be
(planned in the dark, strengthened by
oaths, and manifested at the ballot-box
It filled me with alarm.
"I saw in it the elements- of rapid

ted in that month, and forewarned them
to have nothing to do with it. Had 1
been inspired. I could hard I v have
foreshadowed its history more acurate
ly than I did. . Of my prediction no
thing remains to be fulfilled but the
outpouring of more blood. My fore
cast in relation to it ought to insure
respect for my judgment, in and about
(Jxtord at least ; but it is the very fore
cast which is raising a buzz of discon
tent against me in this vicinity now.
Thi. is the sin which brought out

for which I am soon perchance to be

I do not know that a better use could
be made of my old carcass than the

honors and emoluments of earth I could
not be induced to assume a position of
neutrality in regard to it. If all ex.
perience be not a falsehood, and all
history a lable, it will throw this conn
try into caseless convulsions, if it be
not crushed, and that speedily.
"In my view, every nun who Ins a

I denounce the sinners of the band,
and the saints reprove me! The saint
shields the sinner, and the tinner the

enough to make the church and Slate
both shudder, I know not what would.

this does not unite every father in solid
phalanx against it, let no man covet a
place in a school or college in Missis
sippi. Yea, verily I am in uy 'do

Church and State are on the high road
to ruin. Such is the orderof which I
may not speak at all, or only in court
pnrase! ;
"Now, geutlemen.editors.and Know
Nothings, you have something sensi
ule and tangible to harp upon, with
out resorting to rumor. I am against

you supposed it would distress me sore

sirs; I was twice on the point of resign
ing it, but by earnest entreaty was'in-
uuceu to retain it. lie assured gentle

with respect.
"Nations, like men, run mud at

letting can cure them. My course is
taken carefully, thoughtfully, prayer
fully taken. I am no Catholic. Put
Methodism and Romanism on the field
of fair argument, and I will stake my
all upon the issue; but I am not such a
coward as to tlee the field of honorable
wanare lor savage amous i. lighting, or
such a fool as to believe that a man's
religion is to be reformed by harrassing
his person. Nor am I quite so blind

I have an abiding confidence that noth

withdraw their sons from the able
teaching of my colleagues for my fault
to attack the college to injure me; btu
these are days of madness: and this is
the way in which obnoxious prolss

LET EVERY MAN, WOMAN AND
CHILD READ —AN EXPOSITION
OF THE PRINCIPLES AND
OF THE KNOW NOTHING ORDER
OF CONNECTICUT, FOUNDED ON
ACTUAL EXPERIENCE OF COUNCIL
NO, 147, LOCATED IN LYME.
[From the Hartford Times.]
UNANIMOUS ACTION IN COUNCIL.
Whereas, the State Council of Know
Nothings at its receui session in Nor
nicn, in t.ia grossest iolation of its
constitution and laws by which it pro
leases to oe gorerueil, and contrary to
every decision lounded upon evidence
nd justice, did revoke the chartei of
this council on the representation of '.he
Presidents of two other councils in this
town Nos. 105 and 109; that a major-
y of its members voted at the Spring
election in accordance with the dic
tates of their own consciences, without
fear or favor of apv man: Therefore,
Resolved, That we can regard the ac
tion of the State Council, in thus re
voking our charier without even noti
fying us ol such intention, in no other
light than that ol a base usurpation ol
power, oppressive alike to us and every
subordinate Council in the State.
Resolved, That this action has fully
opened our eyes to the manifest deter
mination of the Order to crush out both
Ireedom of speech and action in the
park of its members; to utterly dite
gard its assurances and obligations, pro
lessedlr made in good faith, whenever
shall best suit i'.a secret, dark, and
unhallowed purposes; and henceforth
to regard uo other law than that of pas
tionaie impulse and arbitrary proscrip
tion, which bag ever been the last re
sort of those powers only that have at
tempted to shield the moat gigantic
wiongs under the dangerous plea of ne
cessity aud absolute authority.
Resolved, That, iu our opinion, the
lime has arrived, for the alarm to be
sounded in - the ears of the people of
Connecticut, aud to inform them of the
existeuce of a secret Order in their
midst which is striking a blow in the
dark agaiusi our institutions of civil aud
religious liberty, and which, if suffer-
d to go on, will soon deatro) all wt
hold most dear in religion, politics aud
morals.
Resolved, That we feel that we sho'd
prove false to our obligations to God and
our country, if we were to keep silence
such a ViniK si this. a that we here
set forth to the people the followiue
exposition of the Order, aud the objec
tions wnicn arise in our mind a to the
principles of jta organization tai ac

were subjected to the most fearful de

cause disowns the olFjprinz. the oblir-a-

il forever absolved, and the liahtof dav
should be permitted to Dauetrata intu
lha dark recesses of this institution, so
worthless, and at the same time so dan
gerous and destructive to the genius of
American institutions. It is arrayed in
warlare against the whole machinery of
rdpuuiican government.
Il has enticed the people from their
homes in the still hours ol darkness, and
and it, numerous places of meetinc
bound them to its foul and fearful pur
poses by administering the most horrid
oaths, with oue hand rea'.iugon the Bi-
Die, ant: the other raised toward Heaven
to yield iliemtel ves unreservedly to the
control of tha secret power, aud even to
deny to their families aud to tha world
lhat they hold connection with the Or
Jrr. No person is permitted to hold an
opiuiou which has not the sauctiou of
tbe self instituted mouth-pieces of the
pjriy. Within this temple of supersti
tion Sir Oracle reigns supreme. The

Completely unmanned, lie uo longer
feels nor acts his former self. In secret
he steals away like t conspirator to the
place where the most inveterate ha tied
is engendered against tbe descendants
nd countrymen of those brave men
whose heroic valor assisted iu achieving
the liberties which we now enjoy. In
itie same manuer,.tid--U, i xk hour
of midnight, he gropes his way back to
hisfainiiy again, to repeal the huudred
times told lie of no connection with the
Order. So much falsehood in the fami
ly circle, where the utmost confidence,
truthfulness and harmony should exist,
his a direct tendency to produce suspic
ion and mistrust on the part of wives
and mothers toward their husbands and
sous; hence we find in every town
where a council exists the female por
tion of the community are speaking out
boldly their moral indignation against
an Order whose influence is so manifest
ly baneful upon all who are connected
with it, whether nearly or' remotely.
He n-ho does not here behold the sura
workings of demoralization aud ruin
must indeed be a poor moralist, '
But all these are evils of small mag
nitude and consideration when compar
ed with some other gigantic wrongs
with which it labors to curse our laud.
The scattering of a few pieces of red
paper of a peculiar shape obliges every
"brother" to arm himself with bowie
knife and revolver, or other deadly wen
pons, and follow the heck of their lead
er even to the shedding of blood. The
Ciiiciiinat'.i, Louisville, St. Louis, and
other fearful and bloody Know Noth
ing riots, are but the legitimate work
ings of the order, and but the beginning
ol such scenes as were euacled on the
soil of France uuder reu republican
rule.
Those who control and manage the
aUaira of this corrupt concern are in it
for the spoils of office ! and no maans,
however desperate, are left uutried to
compass this end.
The order is engaged in a crusade
against religion, il revives the old spir
it of persecutions for opinion's sake.and
of course rallies around its standard
thousand who are always found more
willing to fight against Catholicism
thau to practice their own profession.
Odious religious tests which have been
successfully reasoued down and remov
ed from the statute of our State are
speedily dragged from their loathsome
tomb and quickened into tile. No Cath
olic is to be tolerated, no matter how
sincerely he may revere his Maker; he
is to bold no office in the gift of the
people, have no part iu the government
nor interest in any of its coucetns,
while the atheist, deist, debauchee, in
fidel. Morman, or buddhist. is recognii-
ed as a good and worthy brother.
They have fearful apprehensions that
the Catholic church will soon ovarruu
aud possess the country to tbe ruin alike
of republicanism and religion and all
this, loo, when that church is in tbe
most rapid decline in the old country,
aud while it is only continuing iu Us
fold a moiety of those who reach our
shores strong iu their attatcbintut to its
cause! These apprehensions, theu, are
entirely uufouuded in fact and opposed
to common sense. It is only a trick oj
trufty political managers to bring lo
their am tbe religious element oi ineir
country, while it is generating dissen
sions, sectarian animosities, auu ioe
rankest intolerance, '

This order swears lis members never
to vote for a foreign-bum citizen to nil
any office in the gift of the people.
Thus birth place, rather thau Tirtue and
intelligence, is made a qualification for
tne places of trust and responsibility
What an absurdity is here I The Know
Nothing principles and practice would
elevate a Ueae.lict Arnold to the Presi

are ma people ot Connecticut prepared
toauopt aucti principles at thse
principles wlucb are at war wiih the
machinery of ihe American government?
We have too much coufideuce in llidir
intelligence and honor to believe they
will long submit to this wrouj. We
feel coufident that there are at this time
thousaudi in the order who are similarly
auuaiea to ourselves, and who already
sea that its influence is for evil, upon
erery interest of our country. We
know of many in other parts of the
State who feel with m in thia matter
and who are resolved to come out and
wash their hands of thia foul and die
graceful business.

Others may choose to submit to such
atrocious despotism, but as for our
selves we denounce it as contrary to the
