society, and ery element of rellgoon and
morals, haq ldady artlally subTided, and

whence it e. The onset of bigotry is
about to in a 'peedg sad disas
trous ree andiose who are even now
wards for t* v'le deeds will instead, be
forced to gaer the harvest of the wrongs
they have inflioted upon a happy people.
" They have'sown the storm, and they must
reap the whirlwind." The evidences of
their fast-coming overthrow multiply with
every day. Let us take toteof such as are
most prominent and apparent.
A large class of the know nothings are
clamqorous for public action. They have,
like Mr. Pattd of Virginia, grown asham
ed of their w~ re t plottings. They are
disgusted wqht mandate which compel
them to crawl, like Italian bravos, with
muffled faces, along dark and dirty alleys.
They are sick of the task of threading un
lighted stairs, and of shunning the passers
by, as if guilt and crime absorbed their
souls. They feel the reproach at their
hearts, that this seeking after concealment,
this hiding from the day, is not an Ameri
can practice, but is copied from those dark
times when the dagger of the assassin wasee
whetted in the dens of the depraved, and
when the affront of the morning was aven
god by the hidden blow of the night.
Like Ajax, they cry, " Give us but light, and
we will ask no more." Thus far, however,
they have appealed in vain against the spi
rit of darkness. Every new effort only
adds new tortures to their condition- but
still they clamor that the cloud shall be
lifted off, and that they may go out among
their fellows with the brand of humiliation
upon their brows.
-Another class are restive under the hid
cous oaths they have taken. These are the
men who have boasted of their love of God,
of their affection for their fellow-creatures,
of their veneration for morals. They have
grown tired of deceit, and sore under the
yoke that oppresses them. They realize
that the bonds they have assumed are at
variance with high and holy duties; and
that it is in vain to protest exclusive piety
and patriotism when their secret vow com
pels them to strike their brother for his
faith, and to wound their own country be
cause of its constitution. They recoil
from being any longer forced to vote for
every demagogue or know nothing who can
manage to corrupt a majority of the order
and they long to be released from obliga
tion which crush out their manhood, and
fill them with agony.
Still another and a larger body of those
who have been entrapped into this con
spiracy have become weary and repentant
of the crusade to which they are commit
ted upon all who do not worship God after
a particular fashion. They did not con
tract to break down every Catholic, and,
instead of such a citizen, to take to their,
confidence and their affection the athbist,
the deist end the mormon.
The peculiar hatorsof Catholicity, more
over, are alarmed at the idea that they are
bound to persocuto their follow-Protestants
born in another land; and they. find at last
but too late, that the fanaticism to which
they are bound can haunt the follower of
Luther, with quite as much bitterness as
the followers of the Pope-both being
equally guilty in the eyes of the know no
thin leaders, so far as the one is an adopt
ed citizen, and the other a Catholic--Pro
testantism being helpless to save the first
and Catholicity being powerful to diofran
chise the last

Finally, it is notorious that the difference
between the know nothings of the South
and their confederates of the North is a
deadly and an inextinguishable one. State
organizations in New England have avow
ed abolition doctrines as part of their, set.
tied creed; and wherever in the free states
any formal attempt has been' made by the
know nothings t6 disavow abolition and
avow national principles, excitement and
confhesion have been the result. The very
last demonstration in proof'of this wAas at
Such is the present condition of thle new
party l Torn by dissension, deserted by
those who have tasted of its exactions, and
grown tired of its proscriptions- with the
fundamental articles of its creed defended
by the faithful in one region, and denounc
ed by the faithful in another; with its doc
trines denied by those who profess to advo
cate them-how can such a combination
survive the onset of an intelligent, manly
and resistless antagonism I How can it be
national, when in the South its oracles de
fy the abolitionists and in the North its
leaders assail the South,? How can it be
consistent, when on one hand its terrors
yre let loose upon the Catholic, and on the
other upon the Protestant ? How can it be
moral, when it persecutes the belioever in the
Pope, and forgives the unbeliever in ,God ?
How can it be a compacted organization,
when one State proclaims toleration and
the other repudiates it? How can itecom
mand respect, when one portion of its fol.
lowers acts in the dark and another clam
ors for public action ? How can it be per
manient, when the clergy that have built it,
up fly before the excesses of its followers ?
Demagogues may combine for party and
for plunder; but a politietl combination to
be permnanent and to be salutary must stand
upon the rock of principle. It would be
vain to look for good results from any or
ganization whose rank and file have no com
mon, definitive, and well-settled'policy and
creed, as it would be to see the Christian
church manintained while its followers de
nounced the Bible. -Union.
AB The Emperor of the French made
himself quite at home in England, and one
of his acts there seems to be an antieipation
of the destiny in which he so confidently
trusts. He dated a decree at Windsor Castle.
The prefect who received it exclaimed
" T$s is a a .Napoleon! This is not the
last of the Emperor's decrees from the Bit.
ish capital i' Nothing weapetterc lulato4
to gratify the national feeling ofZ. French
than this Napoleon assumption, It is ev.
idently a little mortifying to the English
press, which treat it as a theatrical flourish
as it truly is, but it befits the part which
the ex-policeman is to. play in the great
drama of his own production. There is
now no doubt that his next deerees will
be from Constantinople. Whether he wiil
be able, soon to date another from Sebmsto
pol is a question.
