The foregoing is abrief statement of facts;
no argument is needed to add to its force
or develop mre clearly the charactor of
an organisation which, while it ostracises
ail those born in a foreign land, draws into
Its toila thousanda of honest and uniuspec
ting Americans, and attempts to reduce
thrto a'cbndition of servitude, strip them
of their individuality, degrade them to the
poedton of mere machines, and compel them
.t the bidding of their masters to disobey
tè dictates of their conoiences, surrendet
their own thoughto into the keeping of oth
ers, and violate their oath of allegiance to
the State of which they are citiens.
Other may choose to submit to such
atroctousdespotism, but as for ourselves we
débmtce it as contrary to the genius of
our institutions, at war with freedom of
thought and deserving the opeu denuncia
tion of every true American.

The Feellciaa Springs.
The water of these springs bas latoly been
examined by Dr. J. 8. Taylor, of thia place,
who pronounced one to bo chalybeate, the oth
er highly impregnated with iulphur. Their
medicinal qualities are undoubted. A number
f ladies and gentlemen are now testing their
bencflcial effects, and speak in high terme of
the advantago they have derived from the
use of the water. Mr. Elsaphine Jackson, to
whom they belong, has fitted them up very
neatly, and bas prepared his house for thc ac
commodation of boardcrs. He bas a fine two
story brick residence with large, spacious bed
rooms. His fare sa the best the country can
afford. His charges very modcrate. The dis
tance from Clinton about six miles, and a fine
carriage road all the way. Those who are
seeking health would do well to visit these
springs and give the watcr a trial. Success to

This notorious personage may call hiinielf a
democrat. The New Orleans Bec may cffect to
believe it, and the editors of tlie Aniericaii
Patriot may wondcr ut the revelation, yet it
would be difficult to make any one in their
senses really to bclicve it. Thero are many
persons hercabouts that claim to bc democrats,
whose conduet proves tlhem to bc most active
opponents to the democratic party. In this
sense Fred. Douglas may call himsclf a derno
crut. We judge people by thcir acts, not by
8.rWe publish today thl proce..ings of
thrco know nothiing councils in New Orl(uiis,
and one in the PIrish of Bienville, repudiating
the action of the late state conivention, wlich
publish.ll a platform dissenting froni tho 8th
article of thi Piiilidclphia platform with regard
to its " application to Aincrican Catliolics."
Thus we sec the know iothinigs are not unitcd
as a party even in the state of Louisiana, imuch
less in the whole Union. If the presecrvation
of tlii Union depended upon the know noth
ings as a national party, it would not survive
tke Mxt Preoi4ltial ldetion.
A Word In Rcply.
t, in the Patriot of the 4th lost., attempts
an answer to certain charges, or objections,
which he says have beon preferrcd against thc
' American Party," or know nothing organi
cation. He ia sorcly annoyed at the hard
names, by which know nothingiem is spokcn
of ail over the country by democrats, and cs
pecially does ho take to heart tho terms uscd
n the democratic resolutions of this parish.
L. should rcmember before making such a com
plaint, thatthe democrats have used no worse
language, when speaking of the order or its prin
ciples, than have been nsed by distinguished
whigs, ail over the country, and by know noth
ngs themselveq who have become disgusted and
have wlthdrawn thoir connection from the party.
A whole council in the state of Connecticut,
numbering 81 persons, came out at one time,
and published an address to the people of that
state, in which they speak in the severest terms
df the ordcr. Great numbers, fronu Maine to
Texas, have done the same thing, and ail agree
n what thcy say respecting its unconstitution
ality, its conspiracy against the rights of our
naturalized and Cntholic citizcns, and th. iles
potic manncr in which the proceedingi of the
order, is conducted in taking nway the riglit
of independent private judgment in political
matters. L. thinks that becoase many good
men arc in the order, it should shicld it froin
:uch charges. This fact should convincc every
one that therc is no danger to the country, or
o its institutions from know nothingism. We
do not dcny that many-good and patriotic incn
have joined, some from mistakcn vicws, of the
spirit and principles of our governmcnt, aiid
orne from interested ones. It docs net follow
that know nothingism is right, because good
men belong to it. Love of power and place,
has seduced many a worthy man from the patl
of duty in by-gone days, and we presume iu
man nature, is still the same now. Man is still
lable toierr, from judgment, ai well as fromn self
ntercst. It is nalural that our lute whig brth
ren shonld side witl any party, that proinised
o overthrow the democratic party. As a gen
ral rule, thcy would as naturally glide into
now nothingism, as water would be, to seek
is own levcl. Thc reason is obvious. Oppo
ition to the democratic party lias ever char
cterizcd the whig party, and its ninmblers nat
rally fall in, an fill up the ranks of any otli
Cr party, that may be started with any fair'
hope of succeis. But not so, geiierlly, witli
lemocrata who have joined. Thcy do so, ci
ther from mistaken notions of duty, or bherise
hey expect their intercsts to be promioted in
oome way by it. Some havejoined froin the
novelty and mystery of the tliiiig,-uiiriosity
las led theni into it, many no doiubt bclicvcd
that it wus a great rcforin party, tlat would
do great good, hy having no one, but thi pure
and upriglit to hold office, and in many othcr
vays, prevent and lop off the cvils, which x-e
st in society, and are foundl sometimes in high
Places in the government. It is time all suchl
:hould begin to see thiir nistake. L. was
once a democrat, and charges some liard thinigs
upon the party now, which if truc, he slhouil
have Icft it for tlen, and not to have waited
for a new party, that promised to bc vcry pop
ular to spring up before lie could do so. Ilis
notives muy be questioncd iow, which could neot
have been donc, undcr diffcrent circuinstances.
L. no doubt, reeiimbers the ficit, tlhat most of
hlose, who have heretofore left the democratic
party, holdly assertcd tlht it waus lheause the
lemocratic party that ad chlanged. That
thcy tlcnmselves stood, where they.always stood.
This may lie the case witl our friend L. Men
lhange often, but principles are externally the
saine. The history of the democratic party is
not hid under a hushel, but a lighted candle
set on a hill; it is writtcn and sewn broad r.est
througli the land, os that all may sec it. Thcre
is no mistaking wlat its principles arc. Tley
wcre clearly cmbodicd in Mr. Jcffersoii's first
inaugural address, and cvery year since, tliey
have undergone a thorough investigation
tlhrougli the public prints. Every national and
state democratie conventioln, embiodies thelm in
their platformis, and if our friend L. will teke
the trouble to examine into the matter, lie will
fiiid, tliat among tlihe cardinal doctrines always
maintained Iy tliheo dmocratic party, was thc
right of foreigners to come to tlis country nnd
become citizeis, and the right of cvcry one to
worship God, according to the dictates of his
own ceoisciriice, and to I under no political
disalility tlherf)r. Tliese tlhinge L. must haiiv
known wlirin hle actcd witli thic demiicratic Iar
ty, aiii wc trust lihe will pardon us for rmciiiid
