East Felie.ns, Augnst, 15h.
We were told by the speakers at the K. N.
barbecue, that the illustrious father of his coun
try, General George Washington, was opposed
to foreigners, and their influence, and quoted
an extract from his farewell address to prove
it. They make him say what is in the address
but give it a very diffelrent meaning, from what
the author himself intended. Let us take a
full extract, and see if it bears any such con
struction as they choose to put upon it, for par
" As avenues to foreign influence in inaume
rable ways, snwb attachments are particularly
aworming to the truly enlightened and Indepen
dent patriot. How many opportunities do
they afford to tamper with domestec factions,
to practice the arts of seduction, to mislead
public opinion, to influence or awe the public
councils, uSneh an attachment of a smtll or
weak nation toward a great and powerful one,
dooms the former to be the satellite of the lat
ter. Agaiust the insiduous wiles of Foreign
influence, I conjure you to believe me, fellow
citizens, the jealousy of a free people ought to
be constantly awake, since history and experl
ence prove that foreign influence is one of the
most baneful foes of a republican government.
But that Jealonusy to be useful, must be ilpar
tial, else it becomes the instrument of the very
influence to be avoided, instead of a defence
against it. Excessive partiality for one For
eign Nation, and excessive dislike for another,
cause those whom they actuate to see danger
only on one side, and serve to veil and even
second the arts of influence on the other. Real
patriots, who may resist the intrigues of the
favorite, are liable to become the suspected and
odious, while its tools and dupes usurp the ap
plause and confidence of the people to surren
der their interests.
''"The great rule of conduct for us in regard
to Foreigp nations is, in extending our coin
mercial relations, to have as little political con
nexion as possible."
Can anything be clearer to an impartial
mind, than that General Washington, in this
i whole passage referred to nations, and not to
individuals. Then that becomes of the argu
ment against our foreign born citizens, and onu
naturalization laws, based upon the evident
misconstruction of this passage ? Washington
against foreigners becoming citizens of the
United States, and afraid of their iufluence
against the governmecnt The idea is prepos.
terous. His remarks were directed against
the influence which France, and other Europe.
'an nations had attempted to exercise, over the
l people, and governmenit, in its infancy, antd tc
Sguard the nation against it. A cause must be
,f hopeless indeed,' that has to rely on miseono
strulction of the dlain language, and evident Ih
tention of General Washington, as set fortl
in the above quotntion from his farewell ad
dreis. The spc~kers were evidently hard rui

The mountain of Know Nothingism in
the Police Jiry has laboured more than
thirty days and brought forth a mouas,
The immaculates of the Police Jury nwy
deeming the article in the Democrat of thi
21st of July last, worthy of their notice,
until they found the public attention some
what aroused, now come forward with their
pretended refutation over the signature ofa
McMillan & Co. How well they have
done it, I am willing for all unprgdied
tax-payers, who are unbonnd and free to
Judge for themselves'to decide. I
The Treasurer's liberality is certaltil
unbounded in his heavy advance of $11 6,
the amount the parish was minus, with
$4087 88 of School funds in hand, or rath a
er in the hands of W. W. Chapman i Cqq.
Why did not the Treasurer .take the covn- 4
mittee to W. W. Chapman's and have th# m
money counted? It was asked for, but it
was not there to be counted. Mr. DeLee 1
told me himself that the tfnds were in the
hands of Mills & Cleveland, Poole &
Prank, and W. W. Chapman, and that
they used it, and retquted me, when a I
heavy bill, for covering of the Court house,
was to be p.id, to let him know a week
or so beforehand, that he might notify
Chapman and others to be ready toith fund
to meet it. You excuse this for the want
of an iron safeof his own. Did youIall to
see the one in his front office room? None
so blind as those who waiU not see.
As to the bridge which your committee
paid $500 for, it was plain to you all that
as good and lasting a bridge could have
been built for $850, with all the guaranties,
in much better form, and equally as high.
If Mr. McMillan had produced the plan of
the bridge as made by him and myself, it
would have shown for itself and proved
t'iese facts. As to the dissenting of Mr.
Moore. On his return to the Jury and
hearing the statements on both sides, he
said, he believed he would not sign the re
r port as drawn up. You then asked him,
what he had said of the bridge, when at it?
His reply was, that the bridge was worth
Sthe money, but, by my statement, a bridge
equally good, could have been built for
$350, and he considered that it was finer
than required, as from its exposure to the
weather, it would last no longer than the
e one for $350, and therefore, in unnecessary
o expense to the parish; but, finally conclu
ded, as Mr. Drehr was innocent of the
plan, &c., to pay him. To come to the
Sbottom of all this, the bidder of the lesser
1 sum for building this bridge was a Germas.,
and there, doubtless, lies the true cause for
' heaping this additional expense upon the
tax-payers of this Pa:rish.'
You say, that Mr. Reese, at the June1
meeting, to prevent the Patriot from get
ting the printing, offerecd to do it for noth
ing. He did not. I offered it. lie was
willing to do it for what it would cost to
write it and post it in the several wards,
andl Mr. Moore and myself agreed to pay
that amount out of our own pockets, and
I made the offer for him to do it without
cost to the parish. As to the non pub
lishing of the proceedings. The Patriot.
had been elected to do the work for the I
first proposition. and said election had not
ieen legally annulled. Your clerk, Mr.
Green, one of the editors, of the Patriot,
having furnished Mr. Reese with the pro
a eedings, in print, instead of manuscript, it
was fair to presume, that under the unre
pealed resolution, granting him the print
ing, ho would have received at your hands,
the specified remuneration. The bridge
appropriation was a significant illustration.
As to the precedent you allude to, of
r giving the Democratic paper $175 last year,
every juror knows that I have contended
that the work could well afford to be done
for $100 a year. The precedent of last
year is this; the printer wasoiver in time
with his paper or printing, and did not
print the proceedings of June, 1854, till
they were almost forgotten, and then so
- badly, that I, as president of the Jury re
fused to pay his first quarter's due, and it
t has not been paid. At the September ses
sion and one other of the same year, I au.
i. thorized the Clerk, with the consent of the
- Jury, to have the proceedings of these two
meetings printed in hand bill form, and
sent to each of the Police members to be
distributed in their wards. And what did
all this cost? Loss than thirty dollars, as
- said bills, taken up by your treasurer, will
show. So much for your precedent. Con
' sistency is a jewel pnd seems to be a very
scarce article these times.
Messrs. McMillan & Co. tell'you that
there is 2500 dollars to be collected from
d. last year, and to look to your tax receipts
for this year, &o. At last year's apportlon
" tioning of the tax, there was on hand, June
5, 1854, a cash balance of $4703 71. A
Id mount due the parish and not collected,
. $1844 10. In addition there has been paid
in by James Barnett, Parish Tax Collect
in $3,724 34. This gives a total of $10,318 15
li- much of which has. been spent and squan
re dered on very indifferent bridges, at very
:e high prices, such as the puncheon bridge
d across the dry bayou at DeArmond's wag
awion shop, worth fifteemt or twenty dollars,
for which Fifty dollars was paid, and seve
