RaLtolous Faunou.--Do not the .following
noble sentiments of Webster rise far above the
miserable, narrow and bigoted policy of mod
ern advocates of religious intolerance and per
secution ? How can the admirers of the eagleo
like Webster thrust him aside and listen to the
wretched croaki|gs of the "night raven of Jc
suitism," and present Know-Nothing Secret
party ? We find the following In the Norfolk
It seems to be the American destiny, the
mission which has been entrusted to us hero
on this shore of the Atlantic, the great con
ception and the great duty to which we are
born, to show that all sects, and all denom
inations, professing reverence for the author

In his revelations, may be safely tolerated
without prejudice either to our religion or
We are Protestants generally speaking;
but you all know that there presides at the
hand of the Supreme Judicature of the Uni
ted States, a Roman Catholic; and no man,
I suppose, througrh the whole United States
imagines that the judicature is less safe;
that the aduministrntion of pnulic justice is
less respectablle or less secure, hecause the
Chief Justice of the United States lhas been,
and is a firm adherent of that religion. And'
so it is in every deparment of society
In toth houses of Congress, in all public
offices, we proceed on the idea that a man's
religious belief is a matter above human
law; that it is a question to be settled be
tween him and his Maker, because lie is
responsible to none but his Maker for adop
ting or rejecting revealed truth.
And here is the great distinction which
is somnctimes overlooked, and which I am
afraid is now too often overlooked in New
England, the glorious inheritance of the
sons of the Pilgrims.
Men, for their religious sentiments are
accountable to God, and to God only.
It~3-Ti E war steamer Mississippi, flag
ship of the .Japan squadron arrived, at this
port yesterday from the Pacific, by way of
nalparaiso. the Straits, and Rio Janeiro.
While at Rio the Russian Minister came on
Iboard whereupon the Russian flag was run
up and a salute of seventeen guns fired.
'his caused considerable excitement among
the French officers in port. The Mississippi
lis been absent since November, 1852, has
Si-ited Japan three times, and sailed more
than fifty thousand miles.
.\ I'x.xsvwEn.inr,a AnUME NT.-At an
14nei:tion dinner a dehate arose as to the
Iolllit of' whipping in bringing up children.
Old Mr. Morse took the affirmative. His
opponent. a young minister, whose reputa
tion for veracity was not very high, affirmed
thait parents often 'id harm to their children
by punishment, from not knowing the facts
Cd' the case, "Why," said he, "the only time
my father whipped me was for telling the
truth." "Well," retorted the doctor, "it
cured you, clidln't it? " The Doctor beat.
II,- The cry of high prices for all kinds
of provisions comes up to us from every
quarter of the country, even from those
states, like Texas and Indiana, which we
have vainly called the granaries of the
world. Some relief is promised, through
the operation of tile reciprocity treaty,
which it is supposed will soon throw an anc
cumulated stock of wheat, flour and pota
toes upon our market. This source of sup.
ply may be relied upon herepfter, with somp
confidence and prevent tile necessity of im
portations of breadstuffs from Europe.
But, I repeat, what I said in a former let
ter, that the culture of the earth, bhv freela
bor, is not pursued, or likely to be pursued,
in this country, otherwise than in a sloven
ly and reluctant manner. When slave la
heor shall become too dear for employment,
there is no other class of labor to take its
place-in this part of the country, or in the
The Western States do not produce as
much in proportion to the labor and extent
of land employed as the Atlantic States,
notwithstandingl their possession of new
inllds at low prices. They can hardly sup-.
ply the demand of immirration and home;
consumnptioa. The Northern Atlantic
States depending on free labor, cannot, in
Agricultmral products, keep pace with their
consumption. No employment in those
States is so much conterned and neelected
as that of nariculture. They may rail
against slavery in thile southern states, though
in fact they derive their entire support in a
great degree from slave labor. There
are some remarkable exeumplifications of this
fact in the address of Col. Orr, of South
Carolina, at the opening of the Charleston
Institute. Southern slave labor for ships,
for navigation, for mechanics arts, for man
ufactures, for every thing upon which the
Northern Atlantic States flourish: and it
would he too hard also to expect the South
to supply us with bread, though the North
ern flour market has long been and is now
quite dependent upon supplies from the
Until agriculture shall become a more fa
vorita employment in the non-slavo-holdingI
States, we must endure scarcity of bread
stuffs, and high prices of all kinds of pro.
THE BENEFIT* OP CIGAR 8MOKING.-Wo
find in our Northern exchanges, the follow.
ing striking illustration of the value of smo
king cigars as furnished by an incident said
to have occurred to Col. Phillips, of Mobile.
Col. Phillips of Mobile, a member of the
late Congress. had a narrow escape from
death, a few day* since, while on his way
from Weldon to Charleston. The cars
stopped at a station bho se and Col. P. left
his seat and went out in the open air to
smoke a cigar. While thus engaged, ano
ther train ran into the one in which lihe was
a passenger, and the seat which he' occu
pied a few minutes before was completely
demolished; ant his coat, which was lying
upon it, perforated by a bar of iron and
carried out through the top of the car.
JiP"The news by the Nashville affords
scarcely a glimpse of the future, th'rougih
the confusion of the present. The position
of the allies becomes rather more eom dlica
ted and perplexing with every arriva , and
it is now beyond a doubt that they are fully
convinced of the mistake of the Crimea
expedition. The notion that this expedi
tiou was undertaken merely to keep the
troops from the (enui of inactivity is frivo
lous. We all remember the assurance with
which the result was predicted. Sebasto
pol was to be taken; the Crimea was to be
occupied; and the British Parliament coolly
discussed the policy of holding the little
peninsula as security for the good behavior
of Russia forever, now we hear the first
whispers about" raising the siege." How

FoncrILY S.uID.-Mackenzie. of the Ka
lida Venture, writes down the following
" Know Nothingism is the best exposition
of the p)ractical atheism of the times. Who
recognizing a God in religion, and a reali
ty in the faith of Christ, can conscientious
ly call in the aid of secret sworn societies
to put down what they think a false relit
ion. If they believe that true religion is
incapable of sustaining itself without un
christian aid, they can have little confidence
in Christianity. If they think God needs
such aid to keep his worship pure, they
must have little belief of his existence.
What is wanted among religious professors
to put down false religion: we are not dispo
sed to determine which sect is correct and
which is not-is a better exemplification in
their lives of their being christians and not
Iypocrites, of their loving God and not
Mammon, of their practicing charity and
not hatred, unider the cloak of religious
sanctity. What is wanted is morecreal and
intelligent religion, and then christian men
would not feel the need of making pitiful
appeals to Know Nothingiism of any other
outside influence to keep up the true Church
of God. A church and a religion which
is only protected and sustained by such in
fluence is scarcely worth having or pIroflss
" We trust that the sober sense of our
religionists--that the intelligence of those
out side the Church-will yet unite to crush
and put down an order of politicians who
require secrecy as a means, and darkness as
a cover, and who, while making good pro
e.ssions can have no better end than the bad
means they employ."
A Goon IIrT.-At the festival in New
York, in honor of Henry Clay's birthday,
the Rev. Sam. Osgood made thie speech on
the occasion in which lie raked the secret
oath-hound order of' Know-Nothingism in
the fidlowing style:
But in saying that we go for American
citizenship, we do not mean to denounce any
maUn. Anl American is a iman wholeolieves
in American ideas, no matter what his birth
place may have been, and I am one who
welcomes to our shores every person who
is a lover of our liberty and our laws.
(Cheers.). I can never consent to try to
piece out the wings of our noble old eagle
by any black feathers from the night raven
of Jesuitism. (Tremendous cheering.)
American citizenship, fair play, no kind of
secrecy, no fighting Jesuitism by Jesuitism,
but an open field and fair play, and. our
star-spangled banner for our standard.
