Of the merits of this distinguished individual it is al
most useless for me to speak. He Is a noble gener
ous and devoted Southerner. A democrat that has
never flinched or wavered, but has ever sustained its
principles, and upheld its banner when it has almost
trailed in the dust. I knew him in the State of Mis
siasippi, in 1840, during the Harrison excitement,
when to avow ones democracy, was to be subjected
to Insult, and not unfrequently personal violence,
yet he neither doubtedor qualled, butflrmlybreasted
the storm, fully confiding In his principle to bring
him through safely, as the good mariner doeshis well
tried ship, when the wind and waves are beating
against it, and threatening danger. The ability with
which he presided for years as speaker of the house
of Representatives, won for him the approbation of
both parties in the legislature. His abilities as a
lawyer are known to be of a high order. As apub
lie orator few can excel him. As a Debater, he is al
ways ready, and generally carries conviction to ev

The sprit of IDtler
A very respectable and worthy .iSter of the
gospel, we are told, openly acknowledges, that he
hu Joined the know nothings, and for no other par
pose than to put down the Cathollcs in this oountry.
This, though manly In the avowal, was neverthe
less pernlcious and dangerous in the sentiment.
That a protestant minister of standing and repute
lion, not only In hib denomination but in society,
in general, should deem it his duty to join a secret
political assoelation for such an olseot, is truly to be
deplored. It evinces a spirit of bigotry and perse
cution amongst us, that we had fondly hoped, would
a.d no advoaetes among such intelligent divines, as
we conceive him to be. Such was not the spirit of
his divine master, when he taught his followers, that
his kingdom was not of this world, and. to -' reader
anto Cearthe things that belonged to Csar, andto
God, the things that are Gods." Such was not the
lessons taught by the great reformer, Martin Luther,
when be opposed the see of Rome. Such was not
the spirit in which our union was formed, nor the
language in which the constitution Is written, stipu
lating that no religious test should ever be required
of any one holding an oice of trust or profit under
hlisgovernment, and such was not the spirit of our
pilgrim fathers, when they sought, in this country, a
" Faith's pure shrinel I Freedom to worship God."
The prevalence of a sentiment like this, unfolds a
spirit of persecution and intolerance, if not arrest
ed, will destroy the greatest pillar of the protestant
church, the right of private judgment in matters of
faith or conscienee. Who does not know that once
you prescribe one denomination for adopting what
they conceive to be their religious duty. you open
the door, that will in the end, lead to the worst con
sequences. The sect persecuted, will persecute in
return, until a religious war, fierce, prolonged. and
unrelenting, will visit our now happy land, and end
in the destruction of liberty, and the loss of all the
blessings which the people of this nation now enjoy.
Free toleration of all denominations of religious
sects, and opinions, is the safeguard given to all,
and is the boast of our people, secured to them un
der a written constitution. If the members of any
protestant denomination, would enjoy the right of
private judgment in matters of religion, and think
it wrong for others to proscribe them, therefore they
should regard that right in Catholics, Jews, or Je
sults. with the same seal they would their own. The
right of every man to think for himself, and to wor
ship God as to him seems' best, Is perfect and abso
lute in all, and no earthly power can take It away,
either by legislation, or political disfranchisement.
We trust the reverend gentlemen above referred
to, has seen his error, and will, in future, rely on
the bible, truth, and reason, as did Luther, and not,
upon secret political associations, to "put down
Catholics, in this country."

As our Knor Nothing cotemporaries have neither -

the Metropolilan Theatre, in New York on the 8th
inst., nor spedally condemned his sentiments on that .
occasion, we diall supply the omission by publishingi
the followlng taken from the Tribune's report of
Mr. Wilson (who was received with loud '
applause) eommenced his address by adverting
to the vast present importance of the topic he
had come to speak upon, a topic which engaged
the attention of the most gifted intellects of the
age. He did not hope to say anything worthy
of more then passing attention; but he would
at once declare his position; he was pledged to
the immediate and unconditional abolition of
slavery, and the blotting out from the legisla
tion of the Republic every act that countenan
ces human slavery. In 1835, anti-slavery was
in the nadir of its weakness; in 1855, anti-slave
ry is in the zenith of its strength. It has now
laid hold on the nusciences of the people; it
has a majority in the house, and is rapidly
changing the complexion of the Senate, in fif
teen sovereign States it has a majority of 300,
000; the most powerful journals uphold it, and

- and the few friends of the hunted slave, although
they violate no rule of law, humanity, or relig
t ion held their lives and property at the mercy
- of mobs; but their perseverance for good now
g forms their best claim on the gratitude of their
country, and the everlasting remembrance of
I- mankind. Mr. Wilson thou gave an outline
of the rise and progress of slavery from the
a .earliest history of the continent, and of the
compromises made with it by freedom. The
i. men who brought the first cargo of slaves into

ly dispersed by a mob of law abiding"U ''s.
achusette gentlemen," and Lloyd GAnson`was
dragfed through the streets of that city. Sht.
legislatures at the North passed resolutions'
against anti-slavery agitation; and Gen. Pierce
declared, yes, Gen. Pierce declared, that only
few women, children and priests had any sympt
thy with thefanaticism of Abolitionists. Proe.
bly Gen. Pierce has recently had occasion to
change that opinion. But the true men of that -
day knew that the war was not one of men but of"
ideas and principles; they knew that the right
should triumph, and they persevered. WIma
those days came which tree Americans can
never remember without a blush-when old pol.
iticisas went through the land. invoking the,
people to "onqner their prejudices"--when
Castle OGardn Unlon Committee sat, there' was
still true men to be found, and a New York
merchant declared that his goods, not his prin
ciples were for sale. The perpetrators of the
Nebrasks iPiquity have gone down before the
stormy 'wrath of the betrayed people. We
have had in America (as in France) the revo
lution of conscience and the revolution of con
tempt, and before the latter the administratiolf
of President Pierce has gone down. Ne#
Hampshire, which in 1886 removed an insti
tution of learning because it sheltered colored
pupils, has given in 1855, 38,000 votes-that
is 10,000 of a popular majority-to send three
Abolitionists to Congreess.
The very town where the outrage was com
mitted in 1885 has given a majority to send
John P. Hale to the United States Senate.
And so in Connecticut and Massachusetts the
popular sentiment shows its change by equally
I striking manifestations-Massachnsetts has dis
missed from her bench the man who gave a
man to a Virginia man-stealer. In your own
I city, where are the men who were false to free
dom ?P But Johh P. Wheeler, who showed
himself worthy, has received his desert. 'Tis
the same in Ohio and other states. 'Tis nine
teen years since I stood in the National Capital
beside Williams' slave-pen. There I saw men
women and children chained, anid heard their
groans. A short time ago I stood on the same
slpot, but the slave pen was no longer there;
in its plice was a garden and a sign hung therq
" Flowers for sale and boquets made 'to order.'"
I hope but a few years more shall pass until ev
ery spot wherever the groans of human bond
age are heard shall be a garden in which
the blossoms of freedom shall make glad the
eye, and the accents 6f hope delight the ear.
The present administration has been defeat
ed in every State in the North and I predict it
shall be so throughout the South. Let any
party, be it Democratic, Whig, or American,
raise a finger to repress the anti-slavery move
ment, and it is sure to die.
We believe in the old Calvanistic doctrine
Sof immediate redemption-yes, and of election
i too. An organization that shall be truly Amer
ican and Democratic, embracing in its affection
the people of the whole country, and the peo
ple of every color. Such a party might well
' be deemed powerful. But if there be any who
hope to organize such a party, to go into pow
i er in 1856, without being anti-slavery, I ask
them to go back seven years, and to see how,
when the Whig party in '48 hooted anti-slave
ry out of its convention, it thenceforth began
r to die.
