The Soulh--Know Nothingism.
Tnt Sousntl-Will hel native or adopted
sons turn against her and co-operate with her
northern enemies? Who are for the rights
and interests of the south, and who are against
them ? Who are for the constitution and
southern rights ? We ask these questions of
all parties, in earnestness and sincerity, for it
is time the south should know who are her
real friends, and who are those, who advocate
policies and measures, directly adverse to her
independence and prosperity.
Is Louislana to be hitched on to that New
England car of Know Nothingism, the great
omxtsvs of all the saus and fanaticisni of the
north, which are in deadly hostility to the
south ? Will southern men give their aid in
consummating this disgraceful result? Are
the people of Louisiana prepared for submis
sion to northern deception, insult, and aggres
sion ? Are they ready to place themselves un.
der the rule and dictation of a GRAND Know
Nothing council of the aorth which assumes
the control of powers above the constitution,
and directed by tyrahnical will, resting upon
violent oaths, unknown to a free people ? Or
will they abide by and support the constitution
and maintain the constitutional rights of the
south ? These are solemn questions which ev
ery voter should well consider, before he ap
proaches the ballot ber, for so far as his own
act can go, in depositing his ballot, it may be
in direct opposition to the constitution and the
dearest rights of the south.
It is most clear and indisputable that the
policy, designs, and ritual of Know Nothing
leism, as promulged by its own organs, are in di
rect conflct, both in letter and in spirit, with
the constitution, and its acts and transactions,
thus far, have as clearly demonstrated its bit
ter hostility to the south. We will ask of all
inprejudiced men of the south, what do you
know of the origin and secret deaigns of north
ern Know Nothingism, with which you are in
sworn affiliation ? You who are now expect
ing to vote in its behnlf-Do you know ich/t
you are.roting for? Can you tell us where it
came from ; who originated it; who devised
and who planned it; and hoao brought it to .the
south? You cannot, and you know you can't;
then how can you know the secret desiens and
objects of those who, in some dark and mid
night council, schemed and and plotted their dlam
nable treasonl against the constitution anid

It was not conceived or hatched in the south.
No southern mind is yet so far perfected in the
devicer and ingenuities of depravity anid cor
ruption as to have been capacitated for such a
work, so perfectly adapted and] arranged in all
parts, steps or degrees of iniquity, to deceive,
mislead, and corrupt, and to bring odium, dis
grace and shame upon the American people,
and government. Then it could not have orig
inated among either wlgs or democrats in the
south, and we warn all southern men to be
ware of it. We warn all those who have been
misled into it, and wound up in its poisonous
webs, to come out from it, to tear assunder its
rotten cords and step forth, true southern free
It did not originate among the democracy
of the north, for they at once, resisted it, and
declared it but another base scheme of aholi
tionism, and disunion and arrayed themselves
against it. It did not originate among the old
national whigs of the north, for they also have
indignantly spurned, snd denounced it. They
stand aloof from it, and will have nothing to
do with the foul conspiracy. Then there is
no pure and healthy source from whence it could
have sprung. Hence, it must he a politienl
monstrosity, conceived in iniquity, brought forth
in corruption, and nurtured in fr:al anl dh
ception. A great American fungus, tlie.I
would overshadow the constiutiton and sinoth
er and exhaust the liberties of the people.
We shall never cease our hunmble co efforts
until this anti-southern conspiraicy is whippeld
hack to its ignoble birth-place. Southern
men, keep out from this foul northern ism.
You, whigs and deImocrats, who have joined
it from hotnest motives and who honestly ad-1
here to it, from favor to some of its pretended
objects, which are only designed to hide from
you its ostensible seiret designs, and mislead
you on a fialse track, come out of it, for we
tell you the south has nothinig to expect or
gain by it. Come out of it, for it is opposed
to the whole spirit adl genius of our govern
ment. Come out of it, for no organization
can have any thing good in it, jast in its prin
ciples or aims, beautiful or attractive in its op
orations or glorious in its ends and objects,
that requires tyrann'iral oaths, and unlt/auftl

The DiscusSIon at Tlephzlbah.
The American Patriot in its one-sided view
of the spcaktng at the above place, by the
nominees of the Democratic party for the State
Legislanture, on the one side, and the nomimnee:
of the Know Nothing party, on the other,
were not content to award all the praise to
the latter, and none to the former, to which
we do not object, but had to faull back upon
the old, unfounded charge, that Mr. Haynes
was one of the nineteen, that signed an address
in 1848, charging Gen. Taylor with being an
abolitionist.. That address was signed by
the Hon. Wm. Patterson, Lee lHardesty, G.
W. Munday, and other highly respectable and
worthy citizens, every one of whom deny that
any such such language, as that charged, was
used in that address. Mr. Fillmore was charg
ed with being an abolitionist, and the people
were warned that they could not vote for
Gen. Taylor, without voting, dt the same time,
for Millard Fillmore, the abolitionist, as the
ticket was a unit and could not be separated.
Here is the language of the addr(ss :
"REMEMnEn, then, that T,~vLnR and FIU.,
MOEn are a UNIT in principles-that tlhey are
inseparably bound together in the same ticket,
and they cannot be put asnmelr. In voting
for that ticket, you are bolmml to vote fo'

This parish endorsed that publiention, by a
democratic majority of 82.
Since that address was isllned, Mr. I'
Air. Patterson, and Gentl. Muluday, lit .,,
honored by the people of this parish, with high
public trusts, although this charge was then
urged against them, by the opposition. The
evidence upon which the address, predicated
the assertion that Mr. Fillmore was an aholi
tionist, was his own letter written to the anuti
slavery society of Erie County, Ne* York.
We append it' for the information of all,
who may be curipus enough to read it. Olr
opponents must be in a tight place, when they
have to resort to such means to support their
side of the question. TIl editors are we:lle
