" Save Me from my Friends." t
This should be the language of Col. Preston c
Pond, the know nothing nominee for Congress c
In this district. The report of his speech at ti
Whittaker's Springs in West Feliciana Parish, I
in the American Patriot, makes him say: c
", That the foreigners es masse were embuid, from C
their early youth, with principles and sentiments an
tagonistlo with southern slavery. That by muoh the ti
larger portion of the foreign emigration was to the fr
northern and western States, and that unless this
thing was stopped, In a few years the abolitionists, tl
through the, aoeumulation of foreigners in the nor- i
thern States, would obtain the numeriol majority
over the southern people; the consequence of which, t
to the Interests of the South, would be most Ia- &
This report of Col. Pond's speech, places a
himi as a logical reasoner, in an unenviable po
sition. It either shows, that Col. Pond did r
not know that the numerical strength of the
free states was already greater than the south
ern states, or that he was reasoning from false
premises, and endeavoring to gull his audience.
If Col. Pond,s position be true with regard to
the tide of emigration being greater to the
north and west, and we admit it, how are we,
being in the minority in Congress, to hinder it?
If Col. Pond's arguments be true, the know
nothings and abolitionists, of the northern and
western states, ought to encourage emigration,
and be the warm friends and supporters of
their rights, and use all possible efforts to
make them citizens and voters! But what is
the fact? They are proscribed and persecuted
there, as much as they are by the know no
things here. Did not Gardiner, the know no
thing Governor of Massachusetts, disband sev
eral regiments, composed mostly of foreign
bhorn eitizens, for no other reason, than that
they were such, and had assisted in carrying
the fugitive slave law into effect, in Boston, in
the case of Anthony Burns, when the United
States Marshall, was opposed by nt enraged
abolition mob, and killed Mr. Batehelder, an
Irishman, while engaged in the dis-charge of
his olcial duties as deputy Marshall. It does
not appear to us that the foreign populfation
Massachusetts, were imbued with such aboli
tion proclivities, on that occasion, at least. We
should hardly suppose the abolitlon know no
thing governor and people of Massachusetts
would be so much opposed to them, if they
were what Col. Pond would have the good
peoile of ,ouisiana to believe. If it be trite,
that our foreign born citizens are imbued with
abolition feelings and sentiments, how is the
evil to be remedied ? The north having the
numerical strength will admit them to come,
in spite of the efforts of the south to prevent
them. It would be the very meains by which
the abolitionists would seek to overturn the
institution of slavery. But the whole thing
is prCIposterous and abJsurd. The foreign born
citizenc has never shlow such disposition, in any
part of the countrv. All such argumentets are
fiillheious aul intended fir party effect. Who
arc the llmost iotorioni< ila.olitiotists titt preselnt,
in the Iuniiion ? Afro they not Seward, (ihldi gs,
ltle(, Chase, Sltinter, P'rker, Phillips, Catnp
bell, anIId it host of'othe(rs we couldthi tintie. Are
these foreiglers ? Surely not. Col. Pond can
lnot namite' uti ahioliimltist, that is a foreigiter,
except Uirrison of Bloston, anid lie was sent
here from Englanid. There is inot another.
This reporter of Col. Pond's speech after en
logising him, almost to the skies, comes to the
conlehlsion that lie must lie elected unless he falls
"' i victim to the lowest Isecl's of party intrigue.
which is levelled igainst him by his opponents."
So far front this being true, Col. Pond has
been treated with great respect and forbear
ance by the democratic party throughout the
district. Not a word of disparaigement has
been spoken against him. Personally, we re
spect the mant. His oratorical powers are fine.
His talents, we wish not to underrate. But
lis political principles we object to, and shall
use them as fair game, in the present catnvass.
His competitor is equally as fine a speaker,
with much greater judgment and less sophistry,
in all other respects his equal, and in mind, su
perior. Ho is on the right side in politics, and
has age atnd experience, which qualify him for
the station, to which he will lie most assuredtlly
called, at the election. Col. Thomas Green
Davidsou will be our next reprceseutatlvo to
Congress. MARIK TiE PllrnEicITIion..
In an article under the above enption, the
dltors of the American Patriot, Indulge in a
strain of coarse and spiteful abuse towards the
"special committee man," that we had been
led to believe, they at least had determined
should never disgrace their columns. Our
friends of the Patriot must have been in ill hu
Inor and to have forgotten, altogether, the
premises they made on our first issue, or they
never would have descended so low in the vo
eahulury of abusive epithets as to have charged
usl with being rmalumnialors and Iraduher.i.
Their terms of " tnnnrecl stupidity, and ruhi
ning lachrimostn reg/ru/s," we take ilto excepelionl
to, but think: them in extremely had taste.- -
We should have thought their "American" re
finement, too nice, and sensitive, to allow them
to make so wide a mistake. Why have our
cotemporaries resorted to this unwise, and un
called-for course of conduct? Is it because
their party cause is growing desperate in this
Parish, the state, or the nation ? Or is it be
cause "their fund of nrgumentation has be
come exausted." We should think all these
together would not justify such a departure
from the common courtesies due fromn'e gen
tleman to another. The editors of the Amer
lean Patriot know full well that the writer of
the article to which they refer, is as honorable
and high-minded a gentleman, as they can pos
sibly boast to be themselves, and so far from
speaking disparagingly of Capt. Comstock, the
reverse is true.
So far as the writer of this article knows,
and believes, Capt. Comstock is held in the high
eat respect by all parties in the parish. His
qualifications for the office of Sheriff is second
to no man's, let him be whig, democrat or
know nothing. We are not his eulogist, and
should not have supported him, had he been
the nominee of the k. n. party, but at the same
time we should have been gratified to know
that if our man was not elected, the office was
in the hands of a man so competent to fill it,
as we know him to be. Yonr assertion that
we would vote for the most miserable foreign
er in our parish, " who shakes his livelihood by
selling whiskey to our negroes, and cheating
them out of stolen corn," before such a man,
is most gratuitous and unfounded. The demo
cratic doctrine, is to judge of a man according
to his qualifications and merits as such, and
not according to the accident of his place of
birth. In this assertion of our friends of the
S' American Patriot" we believe they are
"measuring our corn, by their own bushel."
1 They have taken an oath to vote for none but
native born Americans and hence, if the most
,f competent and virtnos naturalized citizen was
opposed by the most miserable "Native Amer
ican" in our Parisn, who makes his livelihood
by selling whiskey to negroes, &c. he would be
Sohbliged to vote for the latter. Those that live
in glass houses should never throw stones.
We have hound ourselves under no such ob
ligations andl never will. We are free to vote
i according to the dictates of our own conscience
and we intend to remain so. No man or set
of men shall ever have it in their power to diec
tate to us how we shall cast our vote. Can the
editors of the American Patriot say as much?
