timn--nevet did the fell spirit of Alb sloe
lain 19stil its poison with more oartiity
Contrast the condition of the aqep ;
with what it was two years ago, an iw,
changed the scene At that period our
halls of legislation were in thbe eeping of
the sturdy Demooracy and National W
of the country. The enemies of the So
andthe advocates of negrophillam, though
a helpless minority, unheeded, contemned,
attemptd to revivewthe dangerous agitation
of the slavery ieae, but were foiledin their
schemes, t anb to the unflinching devotion
of Northern and Southern patriots.
A bill the object of which was to repel
a peaudo-compromise, which when interest
Srequired, was always discarded by the North
i ad which infinged upon the Constitutional
rights of the South was passed. The prin.
ciples of that measure were essentially the
same as those enunciated and advocated by
the fathers and founders of the Republic;
vis, that Congress had no right to deter
mine whether slavery should exist or notin
National Territories, but that the question
should be left open for decision, accordin~
to the wishes lnd interests of the peqplre
siding thi ein. Theie were the "·odies
laid down in the Kansas.Nebqll 4gt in=
troduced by Richardson in the .ueu and
Douglass in the Senat4. After a warm and
protracted debate the measure was carried,
approved by the Executive, and received
the sanction of all the Union-loving men
of the country. -It was thought by thenm
that the vexed question of slavery, decided
as it had been, on principles which injured
the interests of neither section of the land,
and which was left entirely to the arbitra
ment of the people would have received itA
final qu ietw.
But such was not the case. The north,
or rather that portion of it under which
Blue Laws, Abolitionism, and the spirit of
faction now flourishes in unchecked growth
conceived the design of carrying out its pro
jects under a guise so novel and attractive
as easily to delude the unwary and the ig.
noront. The snare which they adopted was
Know-Nothingism. By arraying the reli
gious prejudices of the descendants of the
Puritans against a denomination which was
represented as silently working the down.
fall of the Republic; by insidiously instill.
ing into the minds of the laboring classec
feelings of envy and jealousy against those
mechanics of foreign birth whose avoca
tions frequently brought them in contact,
and perhaps, in competition with them and
by skilfully using the lever of anti-slavery,
upon the fulcrum of sectional hatreds and
passions, the leaders of the movement soon
saw hundreds and thousands of young en
thusiasts, grey headed abolitionists, dissap
ointed demagogues and ambitious wirepual
lers flocking to their standards and array
ing thenselves into a body, the invinciblity
of which was said to be unquestionable.-.,
What was the result? It can be clearly
seen in the Congress now in session. Every
Northern Representative who stood uponl
the Nebraska platform, and had the patriot
ism to vote according to the dictates of con
science and equity was unmercifully sacrili
ced, and a rampant abolitionist elected ii
his stead. It was immaterial to what po
litical greed he might have been attached,
whether that of Democracy or Whiggry ;
Know-Nothingism needed victims, and ruth
lessly glutted its vengeance. This was the
first stab inflicted upon the vitals of ther
South by that heterogeneous conglomera
tion of isms, miscalled the "American Par
ty"-a stab from which she has not entirely
recovered, and a repetition of which it will
require the undivided exertions of the De
mocracy to avert.
The difficulties which are now occtrring
in Kansas-the state of anarchy and disaou
der, into which this unhappy territory has
been plunged-nay the civil war which
threatens to break out at every moment,
are undoubtedly the work of K'now-Noth
,ingism. It is a matter of fact which eveqb t
'in the North have fully corroberated, that
u* pe ai alS sad popose at she aw
