There is something significant in all this,
there are coincidences which it is well for

Persecution of Foreigners.
History Informs us, that the Federal party, during
the administration of the elder Adams, passed the
Alien and Sedition Laws, and extended the time for
the naturalization of foreigners, from fire to four.

prevent naturalized citizens from taking shies in
polities, to discourage foreign emigration to this
country, and otherwise harass and annoy them. by

all repealed by the Democratic Republlenii party,
that came into power simultaneously with .Mr. Jef

The father of the lion. G. M. Dallas, a naturalized
citizen, was especially singled out and prosecuted
for writing and publishing his sentiments, condemn

administered the government. James Calendar, an
other citizen of foreign birth, was likewise made the
object of Federal persecution for doing the same.
He was condemned and thrown Into prison. where he
was found when Mr. J.efferon was inaugurated Pre

canes he did not take Cuba, when the Black Warrior
and other outrages upon or vessels were commit
ted. Those who make such remarks are perhaps not
aware, that the President has no power under the
Constitution to do so, becasse that would be an act
of war. As Commander-is-Chief of the Army and
Navy, be could repel invasion, or suppress insurreo
tion, but he has ub power to make war. That pow
er belongs to Congress execualvely. While some at
the South are drylng out against the President for
not taking Cuba, others at the North are blaming
him for aiming so do to, thereby endangering the
peoep e the country. 1l truth is, the President
acted with great firmness and promptitude in resent

Congress, but be was not iretained by the adoption
of any measure by that body, even conditional, that
would enable him to do mere than be has done.
Those persons now most clamorous about taking
Cuba, know very well that the President would

any such attempt. He must first have the sanction
of Congress, before be cam make any demonstration
