EXT1A ' 13$? A L rFI r FROM
PRESIDENT LONGISTIT T.
In July last .had j.s, heard of a neW
organiaton io'n o ct ý t in it
movements, and going the name of
Know-Nothi Ip und
stdod to be, i tp, lice and
ForeIgners. tobe pl ed in the dark,
strengthened by oa , manifested ao
the ballot box. t me with alarm.
I sawin it the el lt of rapiddeatm
don d a6,wf .'. exhithtd
to the class 'in that month
and forewarned to have nothing t'
do with it. 1a4I Aiired, I oul4
haril1have foishado its hMdbsg ' more
accurately than I did. Of my prediction,
nothing remains to be fulfilled, but thi ou.
pouring of more blood. " My forecast in tre
atlon to it ought to ensure respect for my
judgement, in and about Oxford at least;
bttie th very forecast, whichjs raising
a bWz of discootent against me in this 'v["
cinty now. Thn is the sin which brought
out against me the recondite Presses whch
I have named above. It is calbl"&dI -ng
in poEltcs," but its true name is,' Uajudta'
b1 truth." This I the sip fo whichi I am
soon perchance to.$e sacrificed They that
stoned the Prophet of old, are yet alive,
and why should I expect a better fate than
theirs? 'Well I do not know th.t a better
use could be made of my old carcass, than
the offering of it up on the altar of this
"' lmericn' Baal. An incense might arise
from it that would do more to purify the
Church and the' State from this modern
abomination, than any thing which can
emanate from my poor frost covered brain.
The public has now the sum total of my po
litical sins, public and private. I shall
speak at large of the new order, in appeals
to my (hurch at some future day, if I may
be allowed to do so. I am committed agains
it and Ishall oppose it forever-not in the
class room but everywhere elsen-ot as a par
tiean but as . hristian. This the palr.s
of the University should know. Forall the
honors and emoluments of earth I could not
be induced to assume a position of neutrality
iu regard to it. If all experience be not
a falsehood, and all history a fable, it will
throw this country into ceaseless convul
sions, if it be not crushed and that speedily,
In my view, every man who has a scruple's
influence, should rise against it-now--ir
mediately, ere it be forever too late. Indeed
it allows no neutrality. With its professed
Americanism, it assumes an absolute dic
tatorship. It will allow no man to ques
tion its purity or its policy. It gathers
within its pale, men of dignity, talent and
piety, preachers and teachers, and with them
the most depraved, abandoned, desperate,
God-defying sinners upon earth; binds them
by oaths in bonds of fellowship, and sets
them all to work in poliics and nothing
but politics. I find a christkqn brother
among them-I read to him I nor. vI, 14
and on, and I implore him to come out from
such connections; and it addresses me in
tones of despotic authority on this wise:
"Sir, my name is Politics-you are a Cler
gyman, and Clergymen should have noth
ing to do with politics!" "Right," cries
my brother, "old man you'll ruin yourself
if you meddle with politics I" I say to him
"your oaths are against the laws of God
and your church." "Sir," it responds "do
you thus denounce the pious of my order.
Have you no respect for the church or your
place?" I denounce the sinners of the band,
and the Saints reprove me. I reprove the
Saints and the sinners dqnounce me! The
Saint shields the sinner, and the sinner the
Saint. If such a comb natlon is not enough
to make the church and State both shudder,
I Know not what would.
On me the Order bears with intolerable
pressure. It rises lifore me likethe ghost
of Banquo, at my every step in the path
way of duty.
Iaam a preaclhe+: If I preach upon the
sanctity of oathsl it regards itself insulted
and attacks me accordingly. If I preach
to christians to come out from the wicked;
it insults me for assailing Know-Nothings.
If I preach that the love of Christ is not
bounded by State lines, itcharges me with
attacking the article of its creed against
I am a teacher: If I teach that unlawful
promises are not binding; I shall be charged
with justifying the exposure of Know-Noth
ing secrets. If I set the lesson to my pu
pils wherein J. B. Say says, that every ac.
cession of a man to a country is an acces
sion of treasure; I am to be published to
the world, as indoctrinating my pupils in
anti-Know-Nothing politics. As 1 am ever
to be gored by this young mad bull, I had
as well take it by the horn at once. Let
the Order keep its hands off me, the church

after filling five chairs fr five years and
performing duties eof.e to wear out most
men, in that time, it wil not cost me a sigh
to relinquish it. Never will I hold it upon
condition that I must treat Know-Nothing

As to the insinuation of that Vermonter,
that students are encouragd. to declaim
on politics, if he mean in , it is the
very effrontery of falsehood, as every one

prove. As to their pritoe declamation, I

I allow tbem to discuss publicly and that
