ee who howl in the lead of the t

held Up as the only .re stay and mu port
of the country, so will they regard all rev.
erence and remembrance of the past as un
manly and "un-American." The prhetlee
of discarding the memory of the gallant
foreigners, who fought for the. esae of the
colonies, on the revolting and mercenary
ground that these foreigners havebeen well a
paid for their services, Is a favorite idea of
the men who cry loudest that " Americans t
shall rule America." Nor is their treat- c
ment of Washington and his American com- a
patriots any less disreputable and base.- p
They commit the most reckless forpg'wu in
quoting his sentiments, and the sentiments
of his brothers in the stormy days of the
revolution. Thus, while they refuseto ym*
pathize with the emotions which inspire an_
American at the mention of Lafayette and
Montgomery, and their associates from oth
er lands, they seek to dishonor Washington C
and the gallant men who served with him
by pFALSIFYING THo nconD, and by quoting~
from his noble history encouragement for
their deeds of darkness and prosetlption.
In this way, those sacred treasures of the
national recollection, the deeds and the vir
tues of the heroes and sages of the past, are
sought to be banished from the hearts of
the American people by the very men who
declare that "America shall be ruled by i
These observations have been suggested
by the following pertinent article from the C
New Hampshire Patriot, the able org*~fY
the demooracy of the Granite State. It
inteoduees the tetimony of the veteran Jar
ed Sparks, the distinguished editor of Wash
ington's writings, exposing the scandalous
fraud of the know nothing leaders in per
verting to their own base uses the name of
Washington. At the same time, it will be
seen that the Patriot introduces upon the
stand as a witness against the know noth
ings, the very agitator, W. E. Robinson, I
who tried to prove Gen. Pierce an enemy
to the Catholics in 1852. "Time at last
makes all things even." Now this former
industrious calumniator of an upright man
and a consistent party is compelled to come
forward to bear evidence against the rank I
and file of the very organization which in i
1852 he held up as the special advocates of
toleration and liberaitty I
" WAsIIINTON's ORDEn.-During thd
late canvass in this State, the ' Hindoo' or
gans and orators daily repeated the story
that on some important occasion during
the revolution Washington issued an order
in these words: 'Put none but .Americans
on guard to-night.' Probably there is not
one of these editors and orators who did
not know that he was uttering a falsehood
and a slander upon Washington every time
he repeated this statement, and doubtless,
most of them will now admit that no such
sentiment was ever uttered or entertained
by the Father of his Country. The lie,
having done them all good it is capable
of, will doubtless now be passed over in si
lence by them. But we think it proper to
show up some of their frauds and tricks,
when occasions occur, with a view to let the
people see the knavery of these fellows.
The following extract from a speech deliv
ered by William E. Robinson, at a late cel
ebration in New York, is conclusive in re
gard to this ' Hindoo' forgery and libel up
on Washington. This Robinson is the
same fellow who aided these 'Hindoo' lead
ers in 1852 in their efforts to prove that
General Pierce and the democracy of this
State were hostile to the Catholics, and
had never tried to abolish the religious test
in our State constitution, and in their efforts
to secure the Catholic vote for Gen. Scott.
In his speech he said:
"'But we are told, and it has been gain
ing credibility among the more ignorant
and unthinking of our land-that upon
some occasion George Washington issued
an order, 'Putnone but Americans on guard
to-night.' This is absolutely false. No
such order was ever issued by George Wash
ington; and yet you will see it flying in cap
itals as mottoes and emblazonments at the
heads of intensely American papers. Some
1time since, I addressed a note to Jared
SSparks, Esq., the American historian, and
,the able editor of Washington's Wri.
tinge including his printed diary,memoran.

Although, he did not undervalue the tri

not forget that in the vast and slautifaul
territory of Knsas, until recently secured
by solemn compact to freedom, a coptest
had on that day been fought which would
decide .whether that'fairland should in fuavor of slave
try;re be the happy abode of a free and intrel

groans of tortured humanity. will be alluded
to the important position occupied by New
Hampshire in regard to the slavery ques

the U. S. Senate reight depend the triumph

out New Hampshire the free and slave states
