The members marched In procession asooompanied
with music, to the Methodist Church which wa filled
by a numerous and expecting auditory, of which the
ladies constituted the fairer and larger portion.
ThL services were opened by a prayer from the Rev.
Mr. WUrAT, after which an oration was delivered by

The musical portion of the ceremonies was well per

dinner prepared under the special direction and man

style in which this was served up, this lady has shown
herself worthy and deserving of patronage, and we
trust that she may receive a due portion of the

los, the reliable correspondent of the BaltimoreL
Sun, write as follows:
The instructions, whatever they are, that have been i
given to Com. McCaulay met with the approval of
the whole Cabinet. We may, therefore, readily be
lieve them to be Judicious, and as well calculated to
prevent future aggressions on the part of the Cuban
authorities, as to prevent them. The 'most reason
able version of the Instructions is that Com. McCau
ley Is to convey to the Captain General, a protest
against the visit, detention, or search, of our vessels
on the ocenn, and beyond the jurisdiction of Cuba,
on any pretence whatever.
11e will notify the Governor, that, if these acts,
thus dermrd aggressive I y the t'n't d States, be re
peated, our vessels shall be protected from them. If
tihe protest and notice be unheeded, the Commodore
will, upon the first recurrence of the aggression,
capture or Pink the aggressing vessel of war. Our
m,,rchanltment w:ll le advist d not to notice the hail
of every Spann'b ship ofwar, but to proceed on their
course, and, if the Spaniilr vessel of war shall resort
to force C('mmodore McCauley shall forthwith engage
the Spanish, as an ,nii my.
Force on our part, is to be used only in regard to
future caes, and not for the purpose of resenting
acts that have been comm'tted. It will Ire observed,
however. that the instructions, though they require
not'er to the CutIran authorities, as prlnminnary to an
attack on a Span'sh vessel of war, do not contem
plate any appeal. as heretofore made, to the govern.

S Baiiba . grlins, JI
The Oongspmidhal Oeaveiin of the Ilrd Di-.
trict, whlob is to moot in Baton Rouge on the Third
Wondsy in June, at the same time of our Democratlo
State' Conventlon, will, no doubt, rennomitate this
distinguished Individual for re-cloclon to Congress,
where he has already won for himself a national re
putation, as a statesman of the highest order.
Among the Democracy of the Distriot there will not
be a dlssenting voice, and lndeed, many of his poUt
eal opponents will be proud to do him honor, by vo
ting for his return to a position whclh he has tilled
satisbetorily alike to hib Mrends and foes.
To have won for himself the proud agpellation of
being one of the " three great leaders of the Demo
cratic party In Congress," in the short space of one
terms service, where there were so many Democrats
of eminent abilities, is a triumph not only for him
self, but for the nation at large, as affording another
evideooo of the eitect of popular governments, in
early developing the minds and energier of the
young men of the country, fttlag them for high
public trusts at an early age.
His bill to have oar land regulations taken from
the general government sand transforred to, and.ad
mlinitered by the States, thereby removing one of
the great oauses of the waste of time and money by
qongress, and his great speech in support of that
measure, have met with universal commendation
among all classes. flis bill reforming ourdiplomat
Io and consular system, and his speech in defence of
the same, together with his several speeches on our
foreign relations and international afihire stamp him
at once, as a wise legislator, profound thinker, able
debator, and statesman of the first class.
His re-nomination and re-election is believed to be
a matter of course.
"By their Fruits, ye shall know thbe."
If we apply this rule of our Savior, to the Know ]

crats, and placed 4n office, flee soil, or out and out

Have they not sent to the Senate of the United
States, Wilson, the most notorious abolitionist in the
North? A man who bas declared, since his election, I
that he would make war upon slavery, whether in a I
majority or m:nority, in publi or private, and ]
would die with unrelenting hostility to it upon his
Have they not sent Win. H. Seward, also, bhck
to the Senate? a man more olecotionalde to the
South, on account of his higher law conduct and
propensities, anm his constant agitation on the sub- I
Jectof slavery, than any other man In the nation. A
man who has done more to destroy the confideqee
that should exist between the Northern and Southern
members of this confederacy, thereby producing sec
tional strife, and consequently, in the end, a dissolu- i
tion of the Union.
In Iowa, have they not sent Harland, a notorious
abolition preacher, in place of the distinguished
Gen. C. A Dodge, a matn whose enlightened patriot
ism has always opposed abolitionism, free soilism,
and every other heresy, which has been gotten up to
injure and ruin Southern institutions. A man belov-r
ed and honored by every one that knew him, whether
of the same political party or not, and whose repu
tation as a sound conservstive statesman, is co-ex
tensive with our wide spread country.
nlu illinois, have they not superseded the brave, the
generous, the noble Gen. Shields. whose best blood
poured fast and freely for his adopted country in the,
Mexican war, by one who is knowh to be a free soiler
and for inferior to him In every respect as an Amer
In Wisconsin. have they not sent Darkee, in place
of Senator Walker, another noble, generous and ac
compl'shed Northerner, who preferred to do his duty 1
to his country. and satisfy his own conscience, rather
than pander to the base pol'tical appet'tes and pre
jidices, which Northern fanaticism and hatred to the
South had engendered among the people of his state.
He would not disregard constitutional obllgat'ons
and southlern rights,to secure power and place. Par
kee is k iown to be an alol:t'on'st of the deepest dye.
In Michigan. d'd they not attempt to drive that
venerable and beloved old patriot and statesman.
Gen. Cass:and his distingulsheld colleague, Senator
Street. out of the United Statei Senate, by passing
resolutions of Instruction,requiring them to violate
their constitut'onal oaths.
In all the Northern states have they not turned
out every National Democratic representative In the
lower house, anrd put in downright free soilers and
albl:tioniste in the.ir place?
These are a few of the many instances that might
we shown, to prove that Know Nothingism. free soil
ism. and abolit'onism, north of Mason and Dixon's
line, are one and the same, thing. We, tile people of
the south, are certainly very blind to our own hest
interests, if we can look upon such repeated abo
lition measures under Know Nothing rule and pow
er, and see no evil to our domeste interest premedi
t ated-no danger to our peace and happiness design
ed. How does it happen that so many results, all
tending the same way constantly take place, where
tihe Know Nothings in the north have the ascenden.
cy, and have it in their power to control things dif
ferently? There is but one answer. Know Nothing
lsm, Free-Poiltlm, and Abolitionism, are all the
same. All striving together for the same object and
acting for the same end,
Whig and Democratic Know Nothings of the south,
will yeu not demand something better from your
s brother Know Nothings of the north? Will you still
remain in fancied security, and believe northern
Know Nothings intend no harm to southern rights
t or Interests, when you have such demonstrable and
s accumulating evidence to the contrary? . Will you
" not pause and reflect? If you will not see for your
selves, see for your children, who may perchance
s reap the bitter fruits of your present misguided zeal
in a political crusade, gotten up and controlled at
t the north, pretendedly against foreigners and Catho
lies, but really against southern institutions and
b Uxoarov.-An itinerant preacher In Cincinuatti
d has been arrested, who, it is alleged, was under en
g gagements of marriage to eleven different ladies of
America lb be rmi by Ameidcas.
In God's nine, who but Amerlans do role
America ? It Is shrewdly suspeeted that Gen.
Pierce is a satii bore American, and that eve
ry member of his cabinet is also to the manor
born ; and so far as the ruling of America is
concerned, it is, by the voice of the people,
committed to their hands so long as they oc
coupy their places.
It is not known, either, that any foreigner,
is aspiring to the place of President of these
United States; and if such is the fact he is
certainly wasting his time, for, unfortunately
for him, there is a little provisspn in the Consti
tution of the country that renders him ineligi
ble. It is beyond the control of voters to
make him President until the constitution is
changed. Nor is there any desire expressed
on the part of the foreign population, which is
comparatively small, to have any change made
in it so that foreigners would be eligible to the
ofdce of President. And if they did desire
such a change, no man in his sober senses has
the remotest idea that the people of the coun
try would for a moment entertain the proposi
tion. Hence, the idea of any but " Americans
ruling America" is ridiculous in the extreme
a mere gull trap of demagogues.
It may not be unprofitable to institute the
inquiries, who is " Sam ?" and what is his his.
tory, and give such answers as the known his
tory of the country affords. In answer to the
first, it may with truth be said-for his record
proves it-that he is the worthy son of old
granny renDEALISM, whose history is recorded
in the alien and sedition laws, and such other
kindred measures of government as her ardent
worshippers labored to perpetuate as best adap
ted to keep in check the progress of an imper
tinent spirit of republicanism, which was mani
fest in this country at that early day and to
promote which the Republican or Democratic
party labored hard and triumphantly.
"Sam" is now nearly forty-one, years of age,
having been born at Hartford, Connecticut, in
the first Know Nothing lodge ever erected in
this country, in the fall of 1814. The " lodge"
was in secret session for three weeks, and no
one outside knew what was going on within.
Finally, the doors were thrown open, and it
was declared that a new ruler was born, and
the principles of his code were prescription of
the South, and vengeance on foreign born citi
zens, viz: Representation according to free popl
ulation, and entire prohibition to foreign born
citizens from voice or place in any degree, in
the administration of the afftirs of government;
, which interpreted, means abolition in its Yan
kee form, and a repeal of all naturalization
"Sam, at his birth, was an ill-looking, un
promising little creature, almost an abortion
so much so, indeed, that his parents anid god
fathers were ashamed to have him christened t
in public, and it is believed that the ceremonies
were not performed till the year 1854, when
the " lodge" again secretly met, and, after great
deliberation, it was determined to have the ce- I
remonies performed at aidnight, and announced I
''SAl" as the ruling spirit of America, and he
issued his bull accordingly, proclaiming that
" Americans should rule America."-Exc.ange
eI.An effort has been making by some
would-be-considered honest and intelligent
men in these parts to induce the belief that
the American Organ is owned or controlled
by an Abolitionist. The idea they caught 1
from the Washington Union or the Louisi- i
ana Courier. Will they now reiterate the
charge, and make the remarks above aipli
cable to themselves, or will they give cred
it to the assertions of a gentleman, who is
a Southerner by birth, and has not a drop
of Abolition blood in his veins.--.nurican
The bigoted sheet at Clinton never consid.
ered it at all necessary to obtain correct infor
mation as to the true position of the " Ameri
can" Organ on this point. Had it done so, it
would have known that both the Union and
Courier based their statements on the authori
ty of Mr. Heath, a Virginia gentleman, who
was for a time connected with the Organ and
who assigned as one of the causes of his hav
ing left it, this very fact of Abolition control
in its management.-N. O. Courier.

PEACE PaosPEcrs.--At present there ap
pears to be nothing whatever in the proceedings
of the Vienna conference to justify the expec
tations of an early effecting of peace.
Previous to. the adjourment, the Russian
plenipotentiaries refused to admit that in ac
cepting the Third Point they have acknow
ledged the principle of diminution of Russiain
power in the Black sea; and asserted that the I
demand for the destruction of the Russian fleet
in it would be contrary to the dignity of the
Government and to the rights of the Empire.
The adjournment of the conference alluded
to, was ten days, in order to await intelligence
from St. Petersburg.
SEvAsrroPo.-The Russians at Sevastopol
made a powerful sortie from before the Mala
koff tower, immediately after the dispatch of
the last previous advice,, but they were vigor
ously repulsed, and experienced a loss of 2,000
men. The French lost 600 on the occasion.
A Russian reinforcement of 15,000 men had
reached Sevastopol on the 18th alnit.
On the 28d ult. the Russians made another
sortie in which they were successful. Several

tions of the conference would not result in thi
eft'cting of peace.
The Austrian Government, it is said, diffrrs
from the Western powers, regarding the pro
.priety of insisting on the limitation of Russiai
i power in the Black Sea.
It is rumored that she will remain neuntral
should the Allies demand the destruction of
Sevastopol ; and she has stated that she enter
ed into her present engagement with the Al
lies, for the purpose of checking, not crippling,
the power of Russia.

other reports with regard to the intentions of
Austria, it is said her army of observation ii
the principalities, is about to draw nearer th,
t Pruth and the Danube.
(GEAT IBArrI.. AT~ EUPATORIA.-Later die
patches furnish the following additional news
received by the steamer Nashville:
Reports were in circulation that the French
Government was known to have received des.
patches of great importance from the Crimea.
It was not pretended that their contents were
positively known, but the rumors were that
there had been a great battle fought near Eu
pa:toria. The particulars, as far as the rumors
affect to give them, are, as might he expected
much confused. But the most plausible of the
statements appears to be, that 5000 Russians
were slain in the engagement, together with a
heavy proportion of the Turkish forces, among
the latter of whom was the gallhnt Omer Pt
Tile Africa which may he considered due at
Halifax about the 26th inst., may reasonably
be expected to bring intelligence of very im
portant occurrences in the Crimea.
