The light of truth and reason Is fast dispelling
the clouds that recently lowered with such porten

constant qecesslonr prove that the sacred union and

tablished by the LoliM, the treasures, and the blood
of our revolutionary sires, Is safely enshrined and
consecrated in the hetarts of the people.
We find in this list, iames hitherto occupying
high positions In both the d&emocratic and late whig
party, and worthy members of soclaty, and we wel
come them to the rutt.s of the friends of the Consti
tution, which we hope will continue to shed its ines

FEtlNns Or TIHE CONSTITUTION.--For the
first time in the south, ia the constitution of
our country directly and bitterly assailed by
at secret organized band, who have received
their tenets and'organization from the north,
-who are bound by an authority and power,
not of us, or with the people of the south.
Democrats and Whigs, you are both repudia
ted and deuounced, by this new and strange
northern-birth order. Unite then in crushing
and subduing it. Unite and drive it back into
s'wa rorrapt New uaglaed don.
The triu s latel Iehieved ºy the d aoc
racy in t. states Af Maine1o'~ nnsyln.aiia,
and Indial, leagithg out the entire south,. ave
pelegIed-e profound&"ennatto throughout the
hol5 nation. The daring and dangerous hum
4 b 'ow Notgingism, the offspring of a
distempered fanaticism of New England, finds
countegaaee among the high toned and
bnuine'peble.~d the south. It has met with
utter condemasaton and denuneiation by all
sensible and unprejudiced minds among us. A
few, It is tede, of northern birth and feelings,
and those whom they have been able to influ
ence, are still contending and struggling to gain
for it a foothold jn the south, but a liberal and
enlightened southern intellect and truly patri
otie principle, will ever bnme their unholy and
unprincipled designs of prostituting southern
rights an4 interests to northern aggression
The recent great triumphs of the northern
demoeracy have sent a thrill of patriotic hm
pulse throughout the length and breadth of the
laId. They are a noble response ,to southern
rights, and an assurance to us that the democ
racy, of the north will stand by and with the
democracy of the south as the only true and
great constitutional party of the country. The i
requiem of bastard Americanism has been sung
both in the north and south, in strains of thril
ling tones not to be mistaken, and their swel
ling notes have reverberated throughout the
vallies, and shaken the mountains and hill tops,
from the St. Lawrence to the Pacific ocean. º
These great triumphs of the democracy,
both north and south, in behalf of the consti
tution and the union, havq been marked and
distinguished by the highest and noblest pres
tige of truly American patriotism, The true
men of the old Whig party have nobly come
forward to the rescue of the country. and have t
every where, battled manfully with us, against ,
the common enemyof the constitution. So we
now fiud it in Louisiana, and the result will
show a common triumph, and a common glory,
in behalf of the democarcy and old line whigs.
The victory is near. " Unto the breach, once
more, dear friends !"
Later advices from Georgia render it cer
tain that the recent democratic triumph in that
State was far more brilliant and decisive than
was first supposed. Johnson, the democratic
candidate for Governor, has a majority of at
least eight thousand over his know nothing
opponent, and about three thousand over the
two opposing candidates. There are 113 coun
ties in the state, 93 of which have been heard
from. The Atlanta Examiner of Saturday
morning lost says:
"'Johnson's majorities, as will be seen by
reference to the table below, are in 93 couu
ties* *........ ............... 12,884
Andrews in the same,........... 4,878
Johnson's majority over Andrew.s.. 8,010
Overby's vote in 6S counties is-.... 4,981
"The foregoing is all of the popular vote
that we can give the reader to-day. It will
be seen that the vote for Overby is from 62
counties only, while that for Johnson and An
drews is from 98 counties. The remaining
counties to be heard from, we think, will not
average as large a vote for Overby as those we
have heard froma. It is our opinion that John
son will be elected by the people, but by not
so large a majority over both as some of our
"We have sufficient data hefore us to state
that the know nothings have been defeated in
six out of eight congresssional districts. We
fear that our gallant standard-bearer in the
seventh district, Linton Stephens, esq., is do
foated, and we regret to state that J. M. Smith,
rsq., our candidate in the third dihtric(t, is also
defeated by a small majority.
"Our congressional delegation will there.

repoet that the how Ni ings have sucerel
ed in electing tl candidte for governor by
a small maj6Hty. The city of San Francisnco
has overthrown Kuow Nothingilm by a large
majority, but among the miners, who are coin
posed mostfy of free soilers from the free
states, and have been long trying to oust tie
Mexicans and Chinese from among them, the
Know Nothing vote Was very strong. This
was to have beelr expected in a free state,
where southern people were denied the right
to settle with their property.
lrAs a Iatter of general information it

snlbjoined resolutions adopted by the last
Democratic National Convention held in Bal
" lResolved, That the next Democratic Na.
tional Convention be held at Cincinnatl, in the
State of Ohio.
"Resolved, That in constituting future na"
tional conventions of the democratic party, in
order to secure the respective rights of the
States to their relative representation in such
conventions, each State will be entitled to
twice the number of delegates that it has votes
in the electoral college, and no more; anl that
the democratic nationaL committee, in making
arrangements for the next national convention,
provide such number of seats therein for each
State, and secure the same for delegates elect.
" Resolved, That the time of holding the
next convention be designated by the demo
cratic national committee; and that, in their
call, the above resolution be inserted as the
rule for choosing delegates."
A SEcESSION FROM THE KXow ?NOeTIIINO
RANKS.-The Valatic Times, after advocating
the cause of Know Nothingism for a year past,
takes (down the Know Nothing county ticket
" after mature deliberation, not to be again
replaced," and, il an able article in its issue
of the 25th, announces its entire and final sep
aration from the detestable principles of the
Know Nothing party. It says:
* * * " Another very prominent renson,
and one that is of no slight account, is that tlhe
position and doctrines of the American party
have a tendency to embitter the feelings of
neighbors and friends; for it must be conceded
that among those born on a foreign soil, but
are now residents among us, are many in
telligeut and high-minded men-men who look
lupon the evils that the American party origi
nally sought to remedy, with as much disgust
as the members of that party-but who very
naturally have sensitiveness of being proscrib
ed and pointed at by any for being born in a
foreign climate. In advocating the American
doctrine, we have come in collision with the
feelings of those who were previously our
friends, but also had just as strong a desire to
see the political evils of the day remedied ap
parcntly as we did. To array ourselves against
such friends, and stand in open antagonism to
those who have always associated themselves
with you as friends, is certainly a very unpleas
nlt position to oe'cupy, and we have a dis
position to avoid it.
" In leaving the American party we are well
aware that we cut loose from Ilmanly vafualhh
friiends, but we feel a (consiousi5ess that we aIr
in the right, and we feel satisfied that wei shall
soon join thca again in other liehis of labor.
" Hoping that all may feel satistfied with our
explanation we now cut adrift from the A mter
lean party, and will let you know when we
take passage with any other.-B-loslon Argus.
.lIE MASSACRE AT LOUISVILLE,
A METIODI)IST CLEIRGYMAN'S TESTIMONY.
Tilhe Rev. Mr. Curran, a Methodist Cler
gyman at Jclfcrsonvill, Indiana, has written
a letter to Gov. Wright, from which wv
make the following extract:
"The scenes in Louisvillo on bloody Meon
(lay have never beenfully portrayed. Froml
my chamber window, on that dreadll night,
I witnessed the conflagration of the Oer
nIan dwellings, heard the screams of women
and children, the rattle of fircarms, and the
shrieke of the wounded and dying; and, oh
God lbrbid I should witness such a sight a
gain, even at such a distance; the recollec
tion sickens me, and fills my dreams with
fearful images. And for these atrocities a
portion of the professed religious press of the
country find an apology.
It is now manifest that the war upon the
catholics is only an incident in this great
lnovemnent: it is rung in to catch the fanat
ic. That portion of the City of Louisville
where the greatest slaughter ofmnen and wo
men and destruction oflproperty took place,
contained no Catholics; they were Protest
tits, but they were Democrats. They were
industrious, peaceable citizens, contributing
to the growing wealth of the city and coun
ty, paying their taxes without a murmur,
and sustaininig the laws. Onoe man, who was
injured so badly as to die since, was a mem
ber of the German Methodist Church. lHe
was merely passing from one place to ano

AN INCIDENT WOItTII IECORDING.-1.V
learn from a friend who was present at the
Ie)clnnratic Country meeting at Denton, on
Tuesday last, that the Whigs, who were hol.
din_' at tih snam time in anotheir part of the
town, ipassed. a resolution to join the Dem,
ocratic lpart. and vote the li(mi)ocratic tick
et, at the Novembcer election; iafter which
thley forimed inito prl)o('c-ion, and marched
ln iiJ.sX., tlnd with colors flying, towards the
pla(c wh(ere the Demo),crats were holding
their i' etiig. Wheln they hail nearly reach.
ed the spot .ove which the I)emnoclntic flag
was floatillg o11 the 1 r''eze, their spokesman
ad:llva'ce, and in .ulstanne, said:
"'(Gentlemen we wish to join the Demo,
cratie party, and hereafter to battle under
the glorious hiulner of I)emonracv! will
you receive us'?" A deafening shout. illmp
diately burst from the l)emocratic ranks as
they xclahinted, "we will!" which was suc
ceedeld by cheering, which might have been
heard blr mIiles aroundtl, and other exlibit;
ions of the wildest joy. Tile Whigs then
advanced under tilhe flag, took off their hats
and gave three hearty cheers. Then such
kidl congratulations, such shouting and
other exhibitions of rejoicing, were never
before witlnessed ill old Carolina county.
A'tier the excitement had somewhat sub
sided, the new-madlle Democrats gave their
)ronlise to vote the D)emocratic ticket at
the ne:zt election; and tihe meeting, after
transactinlg tile business and listelling to
so()me able addresses, one of which was de
livered by the orator of tile whig meeting,
adjourned under the halplliest auspices.
This is but one incideout, but it exhibits
iln a true light, the feeling now prevailing
in the whig ranks over the whole country.
We read in tile Maryland patpers numto
rous instances of the whigs uniting on the
samoe platform with em)o cracy, to over
throw that insidious and hideous monster,
know nothingisum, so disgusted have they
becomne wvith it iniquities.-Dovcr,Dcl. State
