HON. A. 8. HERRON.
On Wednesday, we had the pleasure of li
tening to this gentleman make one of the most
able and convincing speeches to a large audi
ence of ladies and gentlemen, we have yet
heurd in this political canvass. Every position
1Ie assumed, was impregnably fortified by rea
Fon` argument, and facts. He reviewed the
whole know nothing political position, in re
gard to foreigners and Catholics, and with a
master's hand, exposed their falacy, and uncon
stitutionality. He showed they were a section
al party, both in the;General Government, and
in this statel and proved it beyond the ques
tion of a doflbt. Equally clear did he estab
lish the fact, thbt the democratic, was the only
true, national, and conservative party in exis
tence at this time. Take it all, and all, it was
the great speech of the canvass, in this section
of the state'.
THE NEW "AFFILIATION."
how is it that the know nothing candi
dates for Congress in Louisiana occupy the
very same ground, in regard to the Kansas
Nebraska act, with the abolition know no
things of the free states, who have been
elected to the next Congress? Every
know nothing member of Congress from
the free states, stands pledged against this
great southern measure, and every know
nothing candidate for Congress in Louisi
ana has denounced it! This is a most start
ling coincident and one that cannot have
occurred by acident. Has there been a
secret arrangement and understanding,
between northern and southern know no
tliingism, by which the rights of the south
are to be "bartered away, signed, sealed,
and delivered over," to northern know noth
ingism, for the paltry consideration of a
few official crnmbs,-a mess of pottage?
And are the masses of the people to be de
ceivdil, misled and bound over to back and
support these secret plottings which are to
bring shame and insult upon themselves?
Can it be possible that an enlightened and
free people are thus permitting themselves
to be made the instruments of Northern
conspirators, who, through the odious opo
rations of Know Nothingism, are seeking
to divide and break down the power and
independence of the south? We cannot, we
will not believe, that any true southern
nan, under cool and deliberate reflection,
will permit himself to be bound and con
trolled to commit such an injury to his own
best interests and to our beloved south.
Then fellow citizens stand aloof from
Know Nothingism in all your political actq
and stand aloof from those who would up
hold and support it, for be assured it is an
instrmoent of deadly evil to the south.
VOTE AGAINST IT IN ALL SHAPES AND UN
DER ALL CIRCUMSTANCES.
fThe Dead Democracy.
The know nothing press and their orators,
are continually harping upon what they are
Pleased to term the dead democratic party.
If this party is considered dead, by the know
aothings, while exhibiting the signs of vitality
reounted in the following column, we are at
loss to conceive what they would call full
own, developed party existence.
Look at the figures, and see its glorious tri
ophs. Dead I forsooth.

It is truly diverting to hear of the schemes
and efforts' that are'being used by the know

are most exq isitely pleasant dud wonderfully

t ht our naturalised citizens are not to be
caught with such chaff,as this. It is tdo late
in the day, geldtlemen' know nothings. Your
sudden change in thefr behalf is looked upon
with distrust. and you only render yourselve
ridiculous by thus attempting to wheedle and
We are informed by some of ouri democrat
ic friends that the Know Nothings are propo
posing to soop votes with them. That is, to
vote for some one of our candidates, if the dem
ocrats will vote for some one of theirs. We
warn democrats against such offers. Are not
our opponents sworn to vote for their own
candidates ? Is it not plain then as to who
would get the worst of the bargain.
The elective franchise is one of the highest
prerogatives of an American citizen, and should
be so viewed and exercised, with freedom, dig
nity, and manliness, at all times, and under all
circumstances. If our opponents who have aa
unmed to themselves exclusive Americanism, are
disposed to lower and impair this exalted Amer
ican principle, by converting it into a commod
ity for speculation and trade, why let-them do
it. It has ever been the aim of the great na
tional democracy, to uphold and sustain, in
their lofty eminence, all those great and cnno
bling principles and distinguished characteris
ties of our republican form of government,
which have already added such glorious renown
and brilliant lustre to the American nation and
people, and they will continue to do so. Dcen
ocrats to the polls. Statln by your principles
and your candidates.
THE ELECTION.--ThO election day is fast
npproaehing--the great coutobt between
s Know Nothingism and democracy will soon
come to a close. Democrats! are you ready
for the conflict? "Yes, yes," we are cer
tain, will be your answer-we believe that
you are better prepared for the coming con
test than you have ever been before-we
believe that each of you feel that our cause
is just and that you are determined to spare
no pains, nor any exertions that are honor
able, to win the day.
Democrats and anti-Know nothings, the
masses of our party were never more anx
ious to meet the enemy through the ballot.
iox; in fact, we have never seen them en
ter a campaign under more favorable aus
pices, But, under all these circumstances,
we must not lag in our exertions, rather
let them serve to stimulate us in our endea
vors-to work the harder and to gain such
a victory as will strike dismay into the
very centre of K. N. dom. Work, so that
in after times, our victory may be pointed
to with pride by every friend to equal laws
and equal rights. WonRK, that the true
Constitutional friends at the North may
become convinced of our inflexibility and
devoted attachment to State Rights.
WORK, that Northern abolition and know
nothingism may know that in Louisiana
they need not look for " aid and comfort."
Show them such men as Popd, Hunt, and
others cannot triumph when they oppose
the Kansas Nebraska bill.
Let every democrat and anti-K. N. then
be at his post-see that his .friends are
there; procure the right tickets, and erase
not a single name! The whole ticket can
win, and no friend of our cause, should suf
for a little personal pique to lead him into
the support of one whose principles does
not meet the approbation of his head or
his heart.- -Leder.
