Cold ; : i mountain of ieo shall bo tiiis lieart of mine, j )ro such thoughts shall ever dwell there.— j „t sincerely and deeply do I regret thatsucli j ugbts should ever have been breathed out ,'ns eloquent strains of a Chancing, a Web- ] ror a Haync. Thoughts of separation have j •n curriod from tho Senate chamber into al st every nook and corner of tho land, and j repeated in tlia Norlli and in the South by t 00l boys on examination days, fostering in ■ youthful heart in its first burnings forth of riotism a bigoted love for his own Slate, and j ier prejudices against distant members ofthe , lon. I'o array one section against the otiier is trca- j i against the blood of our patriot sires, who, ight and died shoulder to shoulder for com-j ii liberties. The North and the South aro j nentod together by bonds and compacts and I tenants, and by the thousand cords of inter- ; nmunicatiou and trade, aqfl ly ecclesiastical! ociations that stretch over the land, and bind : one religious brotherhood all of the same' cd, and Ly the heart's blood of dying heroes, I ugled in tho same stream and poured upon | ? same altar. Men from the North have died ! the liberty of tho South, and the men ofi j South have not kept back their blood for 3 Institutions of llic North. _ ] We are one. We can never be two. We ; s one, or we are nothing. "United we stand, i rided wo fail." We must boar and forbear, | irgivc and be forgiven. The Northern cap :list must yield a littlo to the Southern plan-1 ■, and the Southerner must give a littlo to \ ? factorv mills. We have need of the North, j i? the North lias need of us. As the effi snoy of an army depends upon the courage, ill, discipline and health of each regiment; id, us each regiment or company will be bet r trained and led to action by having its own icers, so let each state in its own way secure e greatest good to its own people, and tho aid of tho whole Union will be promoted. Patriotism is not universal philanthropy! nor it universal selfishness. It does not make all jlits State rights, nor confederate rights. It ics not make the nation all South, nor all prtli. But it does make the Slates and Ter .dries of the Union, all one. "Are we not creatures of one hand divine? Formed in one mould, to one redemption born, Kindred alike, where'er our skies may shine, VVhr.re'er our sight first drank the vital morn.

AND BALTIMORE DAILY CLIPPER. PRINTED AND PUBLISHED EVERY MORNING, BY HIT,I, & TUTTLK. No. 134 BALTIMORE STREET, BALTIMORE, lid. [For the American Republican.] Triclosed you will find a paper cut frotn the ! "Centrcvillo Times," which it would be well ! for you to publish as indicative of the opinions of the Eastern Shore. If your [taper continues to advocate American Republicanism and the protection of the labor of our own citizens against foreign control and influence, and maintains its neutral character in politics, I think your subscription list will become im mense The great abuse of the naturalization laws brought to bear at the recent elections, lias aroused a flame of indignation, which can not be soon put out. This influence must he resisted, or we shall he over run by men who can feel but littlo interest in our institutions.— I deeply deplore the necessity which recent events have made to exist; because many valu able men will be denied the privilege of voting hereafter. A few will sufler for the indiscre tion of the many. The course taken by the French in New York shows what we may ex pect from foreigners, unless wo protoet our selves. Take care to avoid any reference to the religious denominations in the discussions j on this subject. Religious toleration is the glory of Americans, and whilst the denomiiia- ; 'ions shew themselves to ho attached to the in- j tercsts of this country, they should be protect- j oil in all their rights and privileges. It would j ho suicidal in any sect to unite as a body in fa- I vor of foreigners voting until they had been ! here long enough to understand our govern ment, and to forget their national prejudices } and attachments. Foreigners already natural- : ized, ought not to he proscribed from office.— Our efforts should be prospective; but they j should be immediate. Petitions should be got ; up and sent on to the next session of congress, j There is no time to lose in this matter. The j people should find out how many American citizens there arc who are willing to bo tied hand and foot by inexperienced foreigners, who [ arc daily arriving in swarms upon our shotes. ' We should look at this subject without regard ! to party. The great interests of our country j should be preferred to the success of any party. Party spirit is now at too great a height on | both sides for the good of the country. A DEMOCRAT OF THE OLD SCHOOL. [From the Centreville Times.] Upon the dying away of the present politi- ! eal excitement, it requires no prophet to pre- | diet that the great question raised by the Na- j tive American Society, will come up for dis- | cussion throughout this mighty nation. It is a question of grave importance, and j should bo approached with great calmness and : discretion. Party politics and sectarian preju- j dices, should be abandoned as unworthy of j consideration, except it shall be found that sec- : tarian supremacy is insisted on in the contest, j The question to be decided is—Shall this Na tion make any change in its Naturalization | Laws? No mau can shut his eyes to the fact ' that tens of thousands of foreigners arc annual- j ly arriving in this country, bringing with them : their national prejudices, and most of them j totally unacquainted with the principles of our j own government. Can such men become suf- | fieiontly acquainted with the principles of our | government and sufficiently divested of their I national prejudices, to exercise the important principle of assisting in tiio government of this republican nation? If they continue to increase ; may they not influence our elections against a j vast majoiity of our native born citizens, and J may they not by an amalgamation of the parties I formed in some of our cities for an aggrarian law, becorno sufficiently powerful to make a bold push for an equal division of property? If I understand the objept of the Native j American Society, it is to require such a j change of our laws as to require a foreigner to have the same residence in this country to ! entitle him to vote, as it is now required to ; quality a native-born child to vote. The children of foreigners born here, to have ! the same privileges as the children of natives, ! and foreigners to be entitled to acquire and ' hold property here in the same manner as citi zens. It Seems to be supposed that this movement I is especially directed against the Roman Catho- : lies. This is false, as the Society goes against i Protestant foreigners as well as against Catho- ! lies. An attempt has been made to enlist the > J Catholics, but they have too much good sense j | to suffer themselves to bo affected by the ap- j ; peal. They cannot fail to see that an attempt ! j to identify themselves with foreigners, would ' lead to a persecution of the most serious cliar ! acter. No true American can wish to see any , ! religious sect proscribed, and no sect can be so ; 1 proscribed, unless it seeks an amalgamation . I with the States God forbid that any such I ' issue should ever be framed in these United 'States. As lam fully convinced the object of | the Native American Society has been misunder stood, I have thought it proper tabring to the I notice of ths readers of the Centreville Times, J the only object of tho Society, as I understand j it. lam not a member of the Society, and do ! not know that I ever shall be. It will depend ! in a great measure how far it proposes to go. I may at some leisure moments givo my own opinions at large—these remarks are written on the 4th of November, before any knowledgo can be had of tho resulLof tho great political contest, about to be decided. A NATIVE OF MARYLAND. [From llic London Puncti.] Letter from a Gentleman to his Friend, Entreat ing him to Renounce the Dottle. My dear Peter:—May I, by Friendship of thirty years' growth, be permitted to address you on your faults—or, rather your fault; for it is so capacious that it swallows every other error; in the same way that boa constrictors gulp toads and other unsightly creatures of smaller dimensions. May I venture to remon strate with you on—well, it must be said—your habitual drunkenness? Alas! my friend, to what a condition has this folly, this wickedness reduced you! This morning only, I saw a full grown cucumber in a bottle; there is nothing in tho object, it is a common-place, to be seen in the windows of every pickle-merchant; and yet did that imprisoned cucumber touch my heart, and bring pathetic moisture into my eyes; for by the tyranny of association, it made me think of my forlorn friend. Yes; looking at that cucumber, trained to grow in its glass prison, did I behold in it the hopoless condition of Peter Rubygill! There he is—thought I— thcro is Peter, and who shall deliver nim?— And how, alas! does that plethoric gourd fully declare the story of my friend! How, like him, was it insinuated in its green youth—a f very sucker—into the bottle's throat; and how, when there, was it made to swell, until far too FRIDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 15, 1844. large to be withdrawn, it possessed the whole of the bottlo, and was then cut off forever from the vine that had cherished it! And is it not thus. Peter, with a doomed drunkard?— Does he not enter the bottle in the greenness of his days, and though lie may again and again escape from the thing that threatens to enclose him, at length is it not impossible for him to getaway? Habit makes lmn swell, and there is no hope fur him; cut off from tbe ge neral world, he has no other dwelling-place than a bottle. Verily, Peter Rubygill, Bac chus—like a pickle merchant—has his bottled cucumbers, and you are of tlietn! And yet, Peter, I would fain hope for you. In the name of all tlmt is great and beautiful j in the world, why seal your eyes to its gran- j deer and loveliness, why walk with your drovv-i sy brain in a fog, when, touched by the light j of beauty, it might answer the touch with i most delicious music? What, in truth, can j you know of the bounty and magnificence j showeted about you? No more than a silly j fly, that, finding itself in the palace of a king, j j sips and sips, and tumbles headiong into the J first syrup it may light upon. Have I not seen ! I you leaden-eyed— clay-pated—almost dumb I with pain hammering at your temples—do- i I graded by nausea tugging at your stomach—j i your band shaking like a leaf—your mouth i ! like the mouth of an oven—and your tongue,! !1 am sure of it, like burnt shoe leather? And j for what, I'etcr Rubygill? For some six hours'; ! madness tho night before? You were left a comfortable competence.— ! Where is it now? Gone. The bottle is the j ; devil's crucible, and melts all! You were to- j lerably good looking. And now is your eoun-! lenance but as a tavern sign; where nurnber i less little imps—liberated by drawn corks con tinue to give a daily touch of red, proud of their work, as portrait painters to the devil j himself. There was a time when your word was true 'as gold. Arid now, upon whom can you pass i ( it? From the mouth ola drunkard, the most | solemn promise is no belter than the best-made j bad money: it inay pass for a time, but is cer- | j tain to be nailed to the world's counter at last. ! You bad friends. But there is a moral fever | in the reputation of a drunkard, and sober j ! men wisely avoid it. You have a wife. Has she a husband? No. j She vowed to love a man, and you are a liquor j jcask. Can you expect her affection? You might j I as reasonably expect her wedding-ring to hoop | | a wine-barrel. You have children. Poor things! They see ! a satyr sprawl and reel before them; and, in ! I their innocence, blush not as yet to call the j creature father! j But, my dear Peter, there is yet hope. Learn I to love home. Avoid the tavern. It is in the I | tavern cellar that the devil draws up his army ' array against the brains and good resolves of! | men. It is there that he views his legions of | ! bottles and prepares them for the attack upon j [ weak humanity. But, arm yourself, Peter; | j meet the assailants with cold water; and.intho j j fight, you shall have the earnest prayers of your i old friend, CORYDON RIVERS. POSTAGES ON LETTERS, NEWSPAPERS AND OTHER MAIL MATTER FORWARDED TO BRAZIL, J i The Department of State at Washington pub-' | lishes a letter from the U. S. Consul at Rio do j Janeiro, giving some information relative to the manner in which letters, newspapers, &c., j should be forwarded. Newspapers and other | printed matter forwarded to Brazil, should bo | enveloped with one end of the packet open, or j tho corners uncovered. If a packet containing such matter be wholly closed, it is subjected ; here to the same rate of postage as letters, and j i estimated by weight, though tho same be j ' brought by vessel from over the sea, and deliv ' ercd from tho office of deposit. | "Letters should not be closed with newspa-' ! pcrs, pamphlets or other printed matter; when j ! thus enclosed, the whole packet is subjected to j | letter rates of postage witriout remedy, i Letters or packets forwarded to tho care of i resident merchants or the American Consul, | should bear the whole address on the face of i them, without their being re-enveloped, as ud | ditioual wrappers increase the weight and con j sequently the postage. | The postage charged on letters from the U. ! States, delivered at the port of arrival in this i Empire, is 150 Reis, or about eight cents for | each sheet. On newspapers, properly enveloped, 30 Reis ; each paper. | On books, bound or unbound, one quarter the i amount of letter postage rated by weight.— Books should be ontercd on tho manifest of the vessel bringing them, and passed through the Custom House, in whicit case tho amount of duties charged, if for personal use, is very tri fling." To PRESERVE SWEET POTATOES Select a dry place, level the earth, and lay a bed of dry straw so as to form about six feel in diain ter: on this straw, pile up the potatoes until they form a cone four or five feet high, over which spread a little dry grass. Then cover the entire cono with corn-stalks set up end ways, with the buts resting on the ground, and the tops resting over the apex, of a sufficient thickness to conceal all the potatoes. Then cover the whole pile with earth at a depth of at least a foot, without leaving any air-hole at the top, as is frequently done. A small shelter should then be made so as to picvent the rains from washing off the eaith. This may bo dono by inserting in the ground, about the pile, four forked stakes on which rails may be placed to support tho covering, which may consist of boards, bark, thatch or other substances. Po tatoes can be preserved in this manner until June, nearly as fresh as when put up. THE FAN STEAMER. A boat some filly tons burthen, constructed on the principle of a fan propeller, has been launched in England. The propeller is like the fun of a windmill, and the screw is fixed to the stern, and possesses a two fold action—one perpendicular, which regulates her speed, tho other horizontal, which describes a half circle, and regulates her steerage. PIRATES IN THE ARCHIPELAGO. They aro represented to be uncommonly numerous and desperato. Very lately even King Otho's cut ter yacht was plundered, and every soul on board butchered. ELECTION RETURNS. The Southern mail again failed to connectj at Washington yesterday afternoon. The Te ; legraph, howovcr, supplied its place, and through it we have a few election leturris from the South, which, with those we have received from other sources, we sum up briefly as fol lows: MISSISSIPPI. In Lowndes county, tiie majority for Polk is 200. It was tied in 1810, when Harrison car ried the State by 2,523. It is reported that Ok tibbeha has given Polk from 50 to 100 majori ty. It gave Van Buren 24. Four precincts in Jackson county cast 199 democratic votes and 16 whig—one precinct to ho heard from. In Greene county, one precinct which was for merly whig, gave 31 for the democrats and 9 for the whigs. LOUISIANA. The parish of Plaquctnincs gives Polk a tna- j jority of 1,000. At. the Congressional election in July last the democratic majority was only i 274. In St. Bernard the majority for Clay is 101,' and in Jefferson 14. The former parish, in ' i July, gave 99 majority for tho whigs, and the 1 latter 29 for the democrats. Polk's majority : in St. Ilelela is 08. In July the whig majority was 38. In four precincts in tho parish of Washington, Polk's majority is 95; five do. in : St.Tammany, 52; and one do in Livingston 76. ' TENNESSEE. We received no additional intelligence from ; this State by the mail last evening. We add four counties to our table from the Washington ' Globe of yesterday. (.'lay. Folk. VVliig.

It has gone for Clay by a decided majority GEORGIA. Returns aro in from 86 counties, which show a majority of 2,317 for Polk. MAINE, ILLINOIS, MISSOURI, AND MICHIGAN. | It is useless to publish the returns from these States until received in a more authentic form. \ Polk's majorities in each will be largo enough for all "useful purposes." The samo may he said of NORTH CAROLINA, whero Mr. Clay is j equally successful. GUNFOWDF.R NULLIFIED. It is a singular fact j that a French officer has discovered a method ; of taking away the explosive properties of gun- ; powder, to be restored at pleasure. It is mere- I ly to mix the powder with finely powdered; charcoal or black lead, filling up the interstices! between the grains; and if m this state it bo set fire to, it merely fuses, but does not flame. In a recent experiment, two barrels of the powder thus mixed, were placed one upon the other, and the lower one lighted. It burnt in about 20 minutes, but tho caloric developed had so little force, that the uppor barrel was but light ly charged, and its contents uninjured. Tbe powder is at any time rendered servicable by sifting it. BOSTON BOARD OF BROKERS. Mr. Enoch Martin is chosen President, Mr. Thomas J. Lobdell, Vice President, of the Boston Board of Brokers, and Mr. Wm VV. Keith, Secreta ry and Treasurer. DEAD. Tho New York papers announce the death of Thomas Masters, Esq., of the heusc of Masters, Markoe & Co., of that city. THANKSGIVING IN NEW YORK. Governor Bouck has appointed Thursday, 12th Decem ber, to bo observed as a day of Thanksgiving and praise throughout the State. THE GRAND RESULT.
