Bowman, Editor and Proprietor Infamy of knou-Noihiugism! £7* We have ever looked upon Know-Nothingism a? not only a gross violation of our glorious Consliru tion, but also embracing doctrines at variance with every principle of dreary and mora/iTi), and the pro testing Christian or even niorali-t who could join such a disgraceful and wirLrd organziaf u>n uiu.-t have a conscience seared as with a hot iron. In the first place itenjoins upon men to become LIARS—if evi dence is wanted to prove tins broad assertion, we have it fully portrayed in the following article from the Lancaster (Pa.) Whig —a paper that opposed Know Nothing!tm from the time it drew its first pe.-Dleiitial breath upou this happy land of freedom : From the Lancaster Examiner, Whig. lloit Secrcl KSt<sitoa*y. The secret history of the late campaign is be ing gradually unfolded. The developments are of the same character this year as the last, and as they will continue to be, so long as false- I. -ud and treachery are made the cornerstones oi a pulitical organization. At a great k- n. meeting in New York, last week, the u'ell-kuowu Lewis C. Levin, of Philadelphia, made a speech, in the course of which he threw some light on the late cam paign in Pennsylvania. He said : Again : our candidate for Canal Commission er was taken up, (Mr. Martin,) and within nine davs of the election the j>oiitical tricksters j withdrew him. A few irresponsible individu als met at Harrisburg, without any authority ; from anv source, expressed or implied, and sub- j stituted Air. Thomas Nicholson. The parties j making this change professed to represent the American, the republican, and the outside whig parties. The effect of this was to convulse the entire State.—The base and unprincipled pur pose stood revealed. The object was to claim j the triumph, whiqh was anticipated, as a repuh- j iican triumph. But even that plot (ailed. A 1 iii-'itigtiished gentleman from the interior ot the State, who has held a high post, and who is, I trust, destined to hold a still higher ene, de- | termined if possible to save the party from the meshes of the conspirators, and on theeven ing of the 4th of October addressed a letter to -Mr. Nicholson, in which he asked—First : Are you a member of the American party? Second ly, Do you recognize the principles olthat par- j ty as primary and paramount ? Thiidly, Are j you opposed to the introduction of every "ism" into the American organization, which might j place you. as its standard bearer, in a doubtful position' On the morning of the sth, (four! cays only before the election.) the following! telegraphic despatch was received by the gen tleman refered to:— HAREISBERO, Oct. 5, 1855. SIR—I have replied to all your interrogate)- ' ne> in the affirmative. I have sent you a mes sage to that effect, directed to the Washington House. THOS. NICHOLSON. I his response, and this only, gave Mr. Nich olson his twenty-five thousand votes in the city "1 Philadelphia. It will be observed from the above that Nich olson answered all the interrogatories in the "jfirmntite —thereby implying that he was a p'tre know nothing. On the other hand we are •nlormed by a distinguished citizen of this coun ty. that be (our informant) inquired of Mr. Nicholson, shortly after his selection, ox ins HONOR AS A GEXTI.EMAN, whether he (Nicholson) was or was not a member of the order of k. Hs:—and that Mr. Nicholson replied, "ox ms HONOR AS A GENTLEMAN," that "he was not, anc never had been, a member of that order." How lar Mr. Nicholson was worthy of Whig support or of the Whig nomination, each reader the above facts can judge for himself. We <Te content with the reflection that this paper was not among his supporters. In this connection, as additional evidence to main point under consideration, we copy die following article from the Lehiirh Valley ones —edited by E. H. Rauch. As the testi mony is f rom Olie w j l(J | )as jjeen j ns id^ t jt i s Worthy of attention. POLITICAL THOUGHTS. —The defeat of the cow Nothings at the last election, some pre diet win terminate the existence of the Ameri can party. It those who make this prediction mean that the secret Councils of Know Noth ings are scattered to the four winds of Heaven, then we fully agree with them. To suppose for a moment that a s-cret political nominating party can exist and triumph in this land of civ il and religious libeitv, where everv citizen is a free and independent sovereign—where eve ry man can speak his mind, and worship his God according to th- dictates of conscience, would he to suppose that Americans are "cow ards and the sons of cowards." The best and purest secret party organization, we contend, cannot long exist in our country, simply because the principle is wrong and anti- Repuhlican, In countries ruled by tyrants, where Gospel truth and the rights of man dare not be proclaimed, secret sworn associations, if necessary to secure the people's rights, are pro bably nearer right than wrong. But here all men enjoy civil liberty to the fullest extent, consequently, secret associations as p ditical par ties should not be countenanced, for their ten dency is evil. But when a secret political or der is in evil hands, and controled by unprinci pled, selfish and corrupt men, then such order becomes so detestable that no good citizen can conscientiously give it aid and comfort. The Know-Nothing order although its pro fes sions of principles are good, was managed in Pennsylvania by as corrupt a set of men as ever blackened political history , and under such leaders, a triumph would be even more surpri sing than the repent defeat. The very first act ot importance after the Know-Nothing State Organization was effected last year, was the dis graceful .Matt fraud upon the honest and un suspecting voters of the order. The leaders, we mean the State Council Wire-workers, through the most worthy Grand High Falsifier of the Records, (A MINISTER) lately certi fied that Henry S. Mott was a member of the order in good standing, and at the same time knowing that it was a deliberate lie and an in famous fraud! Still, the fraud answered the purpose of these fellows, which was to put one Democrat on the Know-Nothing ticket with which to catch Democratic votes enough to elect James Pollock Governor. Such an infa mous act as this, by the leaders, was enough to disgust every right minded man, and the great est surprise is that every K. N. who has a spark of self-iespect, did not instantly repudiate these leaders. The Sta'.e Council of Delegates did not even make any fuss about, but hushed up the trick as well as they could. It was an aw ful dose for many good men, who from pure motives, joined the Know-.Nothings to swallow, but every prominent leader in the order, it ap pears. felt disposed to consider the matter as of no great consequence, and the few who open ly denounced the fraud , were promptly cried down as disorganizes or traitors. A GOOD RICASOX FOR RICH DIATIXC THE SE CRET ORDER. —We call the attention of our rea ders to the following extract from the Hunts ville (Ala.) Advocate, a staunch whig paper, v* hose editor has been induced to abjure kriow nothingism. The reasons lie assigns will be appreciated by every intelligent voter who has watched the prog-ess of the order, and famil iarized himself with its results: "When imow-uothingism first manifested it self it came wooing the South with the sooth ing, sweet, and affectionate voice of Jacob ; we lent a willing ear to it, hoping that it would he a power in the North to master and swallow up abolitionism. But its hands have been the hands of Esau strong, rugged, aggressive, war like, striking-down the rights, outraging the feeling, and prostrating the interests of the South : tendering nothing in exchange but a mess of pottage seeking to bribe the sons of the South with hopes of the inheritance, while it robbed t hem of aif. As soon as the mask was thrown off, and know-nothingism at (he North and abolitionism became 'one and indivisible,' we washed our hands of it. It was not the 'feast to which we were invited.", A Swiss lloniatire- In the thirteenth century, Bourcard had an only daughter of surpassing beauty* who appears to have captivated the heart of Rudolphe de Wa diswyl, the youngest, the bravest, and most amiable of the Dukes of Zahriftger, at some tournament. Despairing of overcoming the iia tred of the Daron to his iace, and of obtaining the hand of Ida in a peaceable way, he formed the design of carrying her off by force. Soon after, in consequence of the absence of her fa ther, a favorable opportunity offered itself, and he eloped with the lair Ida, who, it appears was not unwilling to accompany him to his quarters at Berne. This piece of violence only served to increase the Baron's rage, and be came the occasion of sanguinary wars which devastated (he country between Berne and Iri terlaken. Rudolphe, generous as he was brave, 1 at lenglh effected by stratagem what he could not accomplish by force of arms. Fatigued with glory, and tired of battle-field, he sought ; a:i interview u ith his enemy. He presented himself, unarmed, at the castle, accompanied only by a page, and by bribes obtained an en trance. He bore in his arms the little boy which tiis Ida had lately given birth <o 4 and addressed Bourcard—now grown sad arid gray | from the loss of his beloved daughter—in the most respectful and submissive terms. The old man, who recognized at a glance the features of his long-estranged child in the object now be i fore him, burst into tears, grasped the helpless babe in his trembling arms, and freely forgave the past yea, more :he bequeathed, bv will and deed, to the boy, Waller Rudolphe named henceforth Bourcard, the whole of his large possessions and domains. It was this Walter who at his death left his heritage and lands to the convent of Interlaken. A WONDERFUL BLIND MAN. —The Journal de i Chartres gives an account of a water-mill, in the hamlet of Oisiem, near Chartres, built en tirely by a blind man, without assistance or ad- vice from any one. The masonry, carpenter's work, roofing, staiis, paddle wheel, cogs, in a word, all the machinery pertaining to the mill, has been made, put up, and set in motion by him alone. He has also, the above journal as serts, made his own furniture. When the wa ter is low and the mill does not work, our blind miller becomes a joiner, and also a turner, on a lathe of his own invention, and so he makes all manner of utensils, and pretty toy wind-mills for the juveniles. He lives quite alone, sweeps his n-.vn room, and cooks his own dinner : his mother, who has fifteen children to care for, lives a mile off, arid does not trouble her head about 'her blind boy,' f>r 'he earns his brad now,' she says, 'and does not want her.' In 18:>2 this blind miller war rewarded with a medal bv the agricultural society of the arrcu disseinent for a machine serving the double pur pose fo winnowing corn and separating the best grains from the common. from the Ricbmoixt Dispatch, furious Facts Connected with the Nor folk Pestilence. There are some curious facts connected with the progress ot the fate terrible visitation at Norfolk and Portsmouth, which seem to confirm the theory of Dr. N'ott that tfiis fever is of a travelling character and moves from South to North. It commenced in Rio Janeiro; reached New Orleans in 1853, where its ravages were terrible ; in 1854 it scourged Savannah: it reached Portsmouth in 1855. In all previous visitations of yellow fever, Norfolk was first at tacked, and from thence the disease was trans mitted to Portsmouth, which lies south of Nor folk, and its whole march from the beginning uas northward. Its progress through the whole period was always greater in a nortli and north easterly direction, than west and north-west. I bus it crossed the water to Norfolk, a mile distant from Portsmouth, whilst it did not reach the U. S. Naval Hospital, which lies nearly west of Norfolk and north-west of Portsmouth, for two months. When it did appear there, there were very few cases, and those generally manageable. Old Point is in the due north line of its track, and it will be remembered that a late period of the season there were one or two cases there. It is some consolation to know, if this theory be true, that Richmond lies nearly due west from Norfolk, and that we are conse quently not in the track of the pestilence. A very intelligent gentleman, who adopts the idea that the plague is caused by animatcuhe, mentions a statement which be has heard,, that soon alter the interment of a corpse in a vault adjoining a church, in England, the communion was administered in the church, and nearly all who partook of the elements were taken sick, and some died. The wine merchant from whom the wine had been procured was arrested on a charge of poisoning. While the subject was in agitation, some persons, on entering the church, saw by the rays of the sun, streaming through a partly opened window shutter, mill ions ot animalcule floating about in the light. These animalcule seemed to have an affinity for fluids, especially tor wine, some of which was placed in the church, and it was soon filled with animalcul®, and upon a test being applied, the wine was lound to he poisoned. The atumal cula? were afterwards proved to have emanated from the above ground vauit where the dead body had recently been buried. Our informant also refers to the curious ap pearance of the plague fly. Jt is a tact, estab lished beyond contradicting, that alter the plague had culminated at Portsmouth, the cu rious fly appeared. Jt was between the size of a inousqueto and ordinary fly, and changed its color from red to yellow. Where did the plague-flies come from ? They seem to have escaped the observation of natural historians.— Our friend suggests they may be the animalculse, generated by the dead bodies, in a Certain stage of their being. In this connection, a singular fact is stated by an eminent Judge of this State, v\ ho seems to sustain the theory of Dr, Nott and of our Portsmouth friend. Jt is that the great pest to the agriculturist, the Joint Worm, travels from south to north, always in a certain line, and never exceeding a certain breadth. So umlorin are its movements that if he only knows when it has reached the North Carolina line, or any given point whatever, south ot his residence, lie can estimate with considerable exactness the time when it shall reach his own plantation. We are not prepared to advocate any partic ular theory on the subject, but the facts stated ' seem to us worthy of the consideration of men of science. Ax UNFORTUNATE HABIT. —Some persons are in the habit of dwelling upon and greatly magnifying every little injur}' they receive at the hands of others. They thus render them selves very disagieeable to those into whose ears they are continually pouring their com plaints: and at the same time greatly injure themselves in the estimation of such, whilst they are contributing very much to their own personal misery. How much better would it be were such persons to bury their little troubles, or at least to keep them entirely out of sight ! It is to be presumed that they do not sufficiently reflect upon the true nature of their conduct, else they would certainly be more careful to ( avoid it than they are. Jamieson forcibly ex j poses the great folly of such conduct by the . following illustration. "A man strikes me with a sword and inflicts , a wound. Suppose, instead of binding lip the a wound, I am showing it to everybody, and I alter it bag been bound up I am taking off the j bandage continually and examining the depth ? of the wound, and make it fester till my lime becomes greatly inflamed and my general health j is materially aflected ; is there a person in the world who would not call me a fool ? Now such a fool is he who, by dwelling upon lit e tie injuries, or insults, or provocations, cause! a them to agitate or inflame his mind. How - much better were it to put a bandage over tht - wound and never look at it again.— G. R. .Mess Freedom of Tbught and Opinion. BEDFORD, PA.
