Iss.--Tlhe know nothings prove to be a terri
ble source of annoyance to office-holders and
democratic aspirants. The one appears to
dread being ousted from their snug berths,and
the other to anticipate that their fond calcula
tions for promotion on the ground of party fa
voritism, may be seriously interfered with by
this new organization. There is manifestlv no
lo e between them, and office-holding and office
I seeking gentlemen have taken the earliest op
portunity to wage a bitter war upon know noth
ingism. .We could not fail to observe the tri
bulations into which they have been thrown
since thi° party made its appearance.
But, despite all their opposition, the know
notiings continue to triumph. They quietly
pursue their course, and after the elections take
place, coolly count their majorities by thousands.
All the opposition that has been made, and all
the denunciation that has been heaped upon
themli avail nothing. They are a lucky party,
and seem to flourish the more in proportion to
the extent they are abused. Candidates for
office, so far, have made decidedly a bad in
vestmnent wherever they have pitched into the
know nothings. They have found themselves
rather unexpectedly retiring to the shades of
private life by way of a trip up Salt river-with
the only comfort left to them that they have
been the victims of their patriotic and disinter
ested opposition to the know nothing party.
We shall not be surprised to hear of a few more
of them learning a lesson, by sad expe ience,
that the least they have to say on this subject
the better for them.
We notice already that .a number of our
.democratic cotemporaries are much more dis
posed to handle the knowD nothings tenderly
than they were at first. We shall' not' under
take to inquire whether or not it is owing mere
ly to the discovery of the fact that the know
nothing vote counts up at the elections consid
erably larger than the foreign vote. Perhaps,
it is to be attributed to the more charitable con
viction, that s°o far as the know nothing organi
zation tends to counteract the practice of dema
gogues in courting the foreign vote for their
own selfish purposes it very properly meets
with tic favor of the majority of American
citizens, and cannot fail to commend itself to the
good sense of our foreign population.

A SHARP GAME.-A negro lately escaped

The abolitionists of Indianapolis privately
managed to steal away this°negro out of jail,
and sent him away to Canada by the hands of
men who returned and swore that they had

in jail they substituted Freeman, a free negro,
and sent to Georgia for testimony, to prove his
freedom. By this adroit but rather costly ma

ere they millvy be taught lessons of sobriety, we "ri
