A highly respectable and intelligent whig know P
"kothing in this parish, recently in private convorsa
Uon, said that the democrats, duce in eight years,
could be humbugged or enough of them at least to t
carry the Presidential election in favor of the whigs.
That the Whig had done so in the election of Gen
eral Taylor, and admitted that he was totally unfit
for the oMce of President, and said it was fortunate o
for the whig party and the country that he died,
just at the time he did, so that Mr. Fillmore, a man
of some pretensions to statesmanship, sucoeeded
le mln the administration of the government. That
General Taylor's administration was as fiat as a pan
eake, and a greater humbug was never palmed off'
on the credulity of any people. That the democrats
are sure to expose these tricks so completely that
once In a while only the whigs can succeed. Now
we have no doubt of the honesty of this confession
oa the part of the gentleman, and would take no
notice of it, but that those few democrate in this
parish, who have joined this new secret order may
know how they are appreciated by their new allies.
How unenviable is the position of these democrats,
la their present unnatural assoelations? How de
graded they must feel when they realize the fact,
that they are looked upon, by their new brethren in
no higher light than dupes, of whig management
gotten up by them for no other purpose. Will dem
ecrats never learn wisdom from the past. Thiscon
Afssion Is in perfect keeping with the doctrines of the
F'ederalists of Alien and sedition law, memory,
with the doctrine of ihobivael, " that the end Justi.

Hon. A. S. Herrn.
This gentleman beang present, on Tueeday last,
when Judge Perkins conoluded his address, a very
general call was made upon him for a speeobh. He
did not immediately respond, as it was time for
dinner, but consented to speak at three o'clock In
Seldom have we listened to a more animated,
clear, and conclusive argument against know noth
ism. Kind, courteous, and even generous to the
members of the know nothing party, yet with the
principles and practice of the order he had no
sympathy. His speech throughout, was manly, ar
gumentative and convincing, and left the impress
upon all who heard him that he was one of Louisia
na's most gifted sons, on whom, in future, she could
rely for counsel and support, to guide the shlp of
state, when none but the wise and prudent will be
chosqn to man the helm. The democracy of East
Feliciana are proud of their candidate forSecretary
of State, and will give him their undivided support
at the election.
Maj. S. F, Marks, was present, being called on made
a few happy remarks, but declined making a speech,
as he humorously said, "The MMJ. had stolen his
thunder, left him nothing to ay."

One would think, in looking over the " American
Patriot," that some great calamity hadhappened the
country, by the recent nominations of the Democrat
Ic State Convention, for state officers, and the Dis
trict convention for Congress. We cannot help sus
pecting the motives which actuate our opponents in
this seeming interest, they take in the welfare of the
democratic party. Democrats seldom look to their
political enemies for advice and assistance, when
about to make their nominations. They feel perfect
ly competent to discharge this duty without any ex
traneous aid or Influence, It is well for the opposi
tion to know, that our State and Congressional tick
ets, are such as to command the confidence and sup
port of the party, and will be triumphantly, elected.
Your efforts to fan any flame of disappointment,
crwated by the defeat of particular individuals for
nomination, will be unavailing. The veil Is too thin
to hide your motives. Try again.

by previous appdintment, the Hen. John Perkins, 0
ear late distipgalshed Ropgeentative in Congress,
addressed the people in the Court House, on Toes
day the 6th inst. A large audience of ladles and
geatlemen were in attendance, and listened with pro
found attention, during the entire delivery of the
speech, wpish pounpted about two hours.
Judge Pekldns tmmnencedby defining the relation
that exists between the representative and his con
stituents, and what he considered the duty of the
one, and tile rights of the other. That it was the
duty of the representative to render an account of
his stewardship, and the right of the people to know
what he haddone during the time he had represent.
ed for this dietset in Congress. He had come here r
for tht purpose.
The speaker gave a lucid description of the vari
oes measures, that be jd introduced and advocated
ti Congress, and the adse in which business is trans
itead. fow partioular mtters are referred to par
tioular committees, and how h mind had been drawn
to the smueot of our foreign affairs, by being placed
a the comnittee f' Feoelgu Relations. It was his
desire to be loeed on the committee ofpubllo lands,
i.usmuoh as his constitaents were more deeply and
immediately interested in them at the time, than any
other question before Congress, but the speaker had
placed him differently.
Judge Perkins adid that the administration of Mr.
Pierce had been called a weak administration, and
the last Congress, the "do nothing Congress." He
defended both against the charge, and showed most
triumphantly, by reference to what had been done,
that the eenusation was untrue.
He flrqs took a glance into each of the executive
departments at Washington, and exhibited in a clear
and forcible manner, the business assigned to each,
the conditionthey were in when taken possession of
by Gen. Pierce and the refbrms that had been made
under his administration. He spoke of the charac
ter of the heads of th department and paid a com
pliment to eaoh for the industry and fidelity with
which they dlshsarg their respective duties.
He proved olearly, to every unblased mind, that
the last Congress, had accomplished more in two
years,, than any previous Congress, when it was con
sidered, that nearly the whole of the long session
was taken up in discussing the Kansas Nebraska bill,
sad a large portion of the members were new, and
many of them unacquainted with the business of leg
islation. He took up the navy and showed its con
dition two years ago, and what had been done for it.
File millions of dollars had been appropriated to
the buIlding of six Arst class war steamers, and the
repairs of others in the docks. He showed most I
conclausively, that that arm of our national defence I
was ndver In better condition than now. He showed
how the navy had been benefitted, and strengthened I
by the passage of a law, making a retired list for
the worn out, and disabled officers, and seamen, up- e
on half pay, and the increase of the pay of those 1
who remain In the service, and holding out greater
induoements, for others to enter.
In like manner, he referred to the army, and drew vi
a picture of its condition, before Gen. Pierce entered di
upon the dutles of President and showed what had de
been done to strengthen and increase it. How that C
Congress bad made provisioa for a retired list in ri
the army as well as the navy, and spoke in great be
commendation of the reforms that had been made co
by Secretary Davis, in regard to the officers of the m
army, many of whom had almost become civilians la
Instead of officers, and lived in splendor in places re- ai
mote from their stations. This had been corrected o,
and the officers now had to be at their posts. C
Judge Perkins spoke of the preemption law, and b
the graduation law, thatbhd been passed, and the ti
great benefit they conferred upon the people, and tl
especially the poorer classes, and the hardy pioneers se
who most needed such relief and protection. He tl
spoke of the court of claims asof peculiar advantage tl
to those having claims to settle against the govern- d
ment, and the perfecting of land titles. The Presi- M
dent, had shown great wisdom in selecting three of a
the most distinguished jurists in the country, one a
from the north, one from the west, and one from the a
South to constitute the Court under the provisions a
of the law. t
He adverted to the acquisition of the Mecilla Val- v
ley, and the great advantage to the country, by c
which we got rid of the very onerous obligation of
3 defending Mexico, against the Indians, stipulated in c
the treaty of Guadaloupe, Hidalgo, and had obtained
the only real practicable route for a rail road to the r
j Pacific Ocean. t
Ho spoke of the stand Gen. Pierce had taken, in t
having the doctrine, "that free ships, make free
goods," acknowledged and proclaimed as the settled (
. policy of this government, and securing, for it the
approbation of Russia, France, and other European ,
Governments, and the consent even of England, that t
she would for the present so consider It. This, and
the high natlonal stand, taken by Gen. Pierce, that
r the Baltic Sea should not be closed against our ves
n sols, by paying tribute for entering it, to a govern
ment who had no right to demand it, deserved the
highest commendation at the hands of the American
3- Judge Perkins adverted to the reform made by
e the administration of Gen. Pierce, of allowing none
d but American citizens to hold office under the gov
n ernment. Under former administrations, a great
number of foreigners held office, but this practice is
f now done away with. Most of our consuls in other
r countries were foreigners at the time Mr. Pierce be
came President. Ohe of the first acts of his admin
Istration was, through the State Department to lessue
so ,p circular, discontinuing the practice. None but
in citizens, native or adopted, should hold omfice under
or the government.
to He noticed the fact that the administration had
ao been vigilant in preventing the introduction of pau
es poer and criminals from European nations to this
country. That this should not be the Botany Bay
for other countries. But it was right and proper
that the honest emigrant should come, whether rich
or poor. He added to the wealth, happiness, and
prosperity of the nation.
50 The difficulties of our northern brethren, with re
gard to the fisheries, were almost on the eve of throw
ing this nation into a war with Great Blritain, but
B0 owing to the wisdom, firmness and moderation of
the jPrecedent and hie cabinet. the .luoetion had lbeen
. = . .._..l~..-- =" ,- . . .
aettled most atvantageollay to thin country. Our I
vessels cOuld now traverse the St. Lawrence from c
one end to the other, which had never been done be- P
fore, and our fishermen could fish, and dry their nets
upon British ground, without fear or danger.
IHo gave a glowing description of the prosperity
of the country under the management of dimocratic.
rule and the influence of democratic principles. Hie
spoke of the new organisation of know nothings,
in their overwrought patriotism, to proscribe for
eigners from office, as doing fir greater evil than
good. He examined the subject at considerable I
length, showed how its machblnery had been taken 4
possession of by the abolitionists of the north, andL
wielded to their own advantage, almost to the ex- 4
clusion of every national man from that quarter. He
referred to Massahnusetts and to all the northern
states, and particularized the many acts of hostility
committed by the order, towards the people of the
south. In thls connexion, he spoke of his visit to
the tomb of Jefferson and commented most elo
quently upon the inscription upon it: "' Thomas Jef
ferson, the author of the declaration of American
independence, author of the act for religious free
dom, and founder of the Virginia University." He
showed how completely the principles of the order
were at war with the teachings and practice of that
great democratic statesman.
He spoke of Cuba and the sincere desire of the
President to acquire it. The great embarrassment
in the way of its easy acquisition, and the failure on
the part of Congress to second the views of Mr.
Pierce when the proper time had arrived.
The vetos of the President were spoken of in
terms of high commendation, and especially his ve
to of the river and harbor bill. They hadl saved the
country a vast deal of treasure, intended to be wasted
to benefit speculators, and parties interested in
r gaining political ascendency in certain localities.
Judge Perkins concluded his powerful and very
interesting address, by passing a high and well do
served encomium upon the wisdom, firmness. pa
triotism, honesty, and sterling virtues of President
Pierce. lie called on the people of the South to
stand by the man that had fearlessly stood by the
constitution and the rights of the parties under it.
-the man who dared to be honest, and with un
swerving purpose had discharged his duty to the
whole country, and particularly to the south when
assalled by the combined elements of northern cu.
pidity, faction, and fanaticism. u.
How it Works t The Methodist Church
As we confidently predicted some time since, the cc
intolerant and proscriptive spirit of Know nahing
ism has not stopped with the Catholic church. Un
der the plea of correcting the abuses and curtailing
the power of a church, whose priesthood, above al
others in this country, have most studiously kept
aloof from the arena of party politics, the order has
made its most violent assaults upon Catholicism.-
Arguments, which had been answered more than a
half century ago, and charges which the ablest di
vines in the Protestant churcheshad long since repu- ft
diated, have been again brought to light, and para
ded before the public, with all the zest of novelty. 1I
Catholics and Catholicism must be put down. So
relentless and unsparing Is this proscription, it has
been already boldly announced that no compromise
can be made upon the subject. All other elements
may be tolerated-abolitionism, free-soillism, higher p
lawism-all other Isms could find a seat and a voice
and a vote in the deliberations of the grand council h
of the order, lately held in Philadelphia, but the h
Catholic delegates from the state of Louisiana. meni
born upon the soil and fully accredited by a respec
table portion of the people of the state, must be
thrust out as unclean, or admitted merely as silent
spectators of the strange scenes to be enacted before ti
them! We must confess, we were not prepared for
this. Desperate as the new order has become, and h
driven to great extremities as It is, we still had hope,
when its leaders should meet in solemn council, they e,
should abate some little in their Intolerance and pro- r
scription of a large body of men, who, it is freely
admitted, held in their creed, the great essentials e
I of christianity. But it was not so determined, and
the Catholic delegates from the state of Louisiana, ,,
" with their credentials in their hands, were ruled out
of the Convention-and men that were professing
f one form of religion, have been thus publicly ostra- r
d cised. What have other denominations a right to ex
I pect 1 Is it to be supposed that those who profess
no faith in any form of christianity, and others unl
ted in this unholy crusade, should they succeed In
I trampling under their feet whatever Is sacred in
r Catholicism. will not assail with equal violence, cv
I cry other form of christianity, when they find it their
e Interest to do so? Will it be pretended that it is the I
a object of this new order to reform the abuses of the
t Catholic church! This object has been avowed be-.
t fore, when for nearly two centuries, England refu
*t sed permission to any Catholic, to hold a place In
her universities of learning, or to plead in her
I- courts of justice, or to represent their follows in'the
e parliament of the nation, it was because they were I
n supposed to be dangerous to the state, and under
the pretext of correcting their abuses. When dn
y ring the reign of the virgin Queen. Catholic parents
Io had their children ruthlessly torn from them, and I
-I placed under the Instruction of Prolestant teachers.
It and taught to abuse the faith of their fathers, it was
Is under the pretext of correcting their abuses. When
er during the intolerant and arbitrary government of
- a later period, Catholic priests were hunted like
a- wild beasts, through the moors and hills of Ireland,
1e and it was declared a felony for any one to give
it them food or shelter, iL was under the pretext of cor
er recting their abuses. When the Infiduel Philosophers
of France, just before the first revolution, made
ad their most violent assaults upon the Catholic church,
u- It was under the pretext of correcting her abuses.-
tis And there has never yet occurred In the world's his
ay tory, a single act of intolerance and proscription to
er wards this body of christians, that was not justified
clh by the pretext of correcting their abuses? And
nd what has been the result of all this! In not a few
instances, those who began by assailing the Catholic
re- church, soon found an equal necessity for assailing
w- every other form of religion. And that such will
nut be the course of the now order in this country, If
of pushed to its legitimate consequences, we entertain
en but little doubt, M i. whii to accomplish a politisal
purpose, will make opealrar upOn one church, will
not hesiltate long about. the diSlpotlon of another
should it be found In the way of their object. It Is

"The very organization of the Methodist
Episcopal chlurch is dangerous to the lbeut
of it free people, supposing a crisis to aslet Ia
a political action in which the hleragok,
of the Methodist Church is interested.-.
Front the dependence of all parts on one grs
central power, it is easy to perceive how t4,
snffrages of most of the members may be cee
trolled by the Bishops. Let the Blshops .
gest to the Presitllng Elders that the ntet:
of their ecclesiastical despotism will be Ish
verted by the election of a certain set of met.
to office;--the presiding elders use their if
ence over the preachers, the preachers over th
class leaders, and thus the balance of power
in a political contest may rest In the hands o
seven Methodist Bishops. There is as msu
danger of this as there is of Romanisrt accs
plishing a similar resuit; provided the eouiors,
I have thus briefly shown that Episcopal
Methodist is Auti-Anlcrican in its spirit and
tendency, and it is a dangerous foe for Reptub
licanism. I have shown that it had its origin
in usurpation-that its very organization pro
vides for the support and extension of assumed
power, and this power may be expressly exe
cised without restriction. I have shown that
Methodist Episcopacy contains in itself the
very elements of an absolute despotism, asd
therefore must ulitmately, unless checked, s.barl
and destroy our republican instituttons."
