4 An Irish Catholic" writes us to say that v
?re certainly mistaken iu our presumption that
majority of his co-religionists in this city are su
porters of Douglas. It may be as he aays; b
?we have heard the fact that the Irish were f
Douglas assigned as a reason for May
Wood's adhesion to the Little Giant. The fa
that Airs. Douglas is a Catholic has also been cit<
as inclining many Catholics to support her husbai
lor President. As we hive hitherto offered r
Xeasons in support of our own impression, w
decline to print those of "An Irish Catholic,
merely explaining that we did not intend to sa
that Catholics were or were not governed l
theological considerations more than any oth?

1 hough I obtained my information as to tin
alleged purchase of Lime Point, near San Fran
?Pisco, at the War Department, it seems that my
informants were in error. The Government hai
Bert out to condemn the property under the laws o
California. Should the return be extravagant ?
Ot-cond jury of condemnation may be had. Th?
price, (800.000, has never be?n charted by thf
C>wner of the land, which extends seven miles uj
the seaside, and is regarded as a necessity to thi
??- fense of San Francisco.
Tt terewt increases here as to the probable actioi
?I>f the Virginia Democracy on the Presidentialqiies
ton. Undoubtedly the Douglas wing are quite power?
ful enougL to badly defeat the powers that be in the
?State, who have slaughtered Mr. Douglas, and
put up Mr. iireckinridge. Their cry is now pite jus
for harmony, because they see all sorts of dwastei
in the future. H\tra Billy Smith and Shelton F.

Nfw-Vork, 30th July, 13*10.
Sin : Th-- popular mrod inclin?e to the sentiment tbat
national self-respect should shield the position e?f Presi?
dent from any exposure of the delinquencies e?f the in
eumbent. The Constitution declares otherwise, aud,
in your case, it is most healthy for the public, to ad?
vance to tbe ceinstitutioual rimit. Von have, besides,
voluntarily entered the lists of partisan discussion, in?
viting all the ceicsequ'tires of the position.
Your cumulative infidelity to Ae country, which has
brought us to our present diemtejsratuig ce/tsfilion, was
shadowed forth in the lie?giunin?;of vour administra?
tion, bv base ingratitude to individuals. Step by step,
fiiend after friend was sm rificed. The fue t of a pre?
vious obligation chilled you; great service made any
enieodious. A President should have no animosities.
You are governed onlr by vonr bates, affection you
have none. But two classes nave any hold upon you;
those who bud opposeel and reviled and ?owed you,
and the stipple parte?les who fawn upon you. Vet,
even these cannot be devoted if they would. For the
course which s settled on to-day is changed by your
vacillating mind to-morrow, and on the morrow the
zig zag preigramme is changed again. You even endear
e>r to pursue two oppe site MOJOM at once. Witness your
open inst rue lions 0 (?ov. Walker, and your private in?
stru? tiot s to the Surveyor (?eneral. ana other officials
in Kar sas. Witness your late declaration: "There
'? fere, every DOMMMf is at perfect liberty to vote us
" he thinks "preiper," and your secret circular ordering
the -ii-mi--1! of every office holder in fuvor of Dong
las. Witness your contiadictoty declautiotis iu regard
to the rights of naturalized datMM ubroad. Contra?
di. li< n upon conttadittion !
Ned only the political, but the social atmosphere of
Washington is poisoned by the upas of your influence.
Sut h is your pernicious course?, that the White House
is made uncomfortable for visitors, by the obtrusion of
Vicious polities into your parlor?, h should lie the pa?
triotic ?ride of every Administration, to make Wash?
ington the center eif intellectual brilliancy. But in?
stead .d' communing with the Lest miudsof the country,
and informing yours* If freshly from its ditleient see ?
lions, von mane*the reeesses of the Presidential man?
sion, labyrinths of espionage where the Chief Magis?
trate sit? "greedily reetivin? petty reports of defection
among his enslaved office-holefeis. The wisest and
meist hone.red men eif tbe country avoid Washington as
a moral pest-bouse.
The- Ne to-like- pel tidy to individuals which charac?
terized your administration ft oro the beginning, now
niaiks its close by the betrayal of the great ami gener
oii- p>rty i ha! has fostered you by its hitheitJ impreg?
nable organizatiim, fnm your early days of Federalist
apostarv, down tei your last hours 01 treasonable in
gra'tiude and disunion, in the Presidential? bail. Never
did, a man owe so much t<i a i-arty?never was a party
so wantonly betrayed. False alike to persons and
?iartv, you nave uot thought of either but for the shal
owest iustintis of self.
It is a lavorite thought and expression with you that
the Federal o fib ers are your personal property. How
often have the monncratic worels, "my Secretaries,
Stf office-holders,'' gntted upon the indignant ears of
American citizens assembled in the i>ni,enrc-clt<im!>er
at the White House/ Kven the Karo peau de OBOtk
formula <|iialities itself by the less arrogant use ot the
film a/. Instead of incu?? atiug the ennobling idea th.d
their first duty \F to their country and to democratic
prine?pis, your rnle holds officials to a degrading sub
serviencv; there is ned a man of your appointment,
from Cabinet Mini ter to tidt -waittr who does not live
in a i-tate of daily irritation and protest, nndei your
grinding rule. Offices, men, patronage aid public
ii oriey are ull chweed as your property. There is
stanely a contract niede under the (?overnment in
wl ich "you do not actively participate: not on the side
of the (?it pie, but for soins follower, as instanced iu
your divisions and sub-divisions of the profits on the
Peat-Office blink printirg. The thought neverstruck
you that it was your duty to save the excess over a
MMMOklo pioht, instead of disreputably dividing it
among y<ur favorites. Your small politics keep you
alvvays'm some imaginury administration crisis, aud
constantly on the look-out for vacuut positi'ins for ihe
rewind .."f your partisans of the mometj', Pjsiti.ms of
eoiieeejuenee aie thus not appreciated by yon, and are
ofte n thrown away or overlooked, while inferior posi?
tions aie swelled into pluces of importance. Witucs
yciur recent varied at temp's to get rid of the Paraguay
Commission, in pursuance of your tactics to lower
superior men by ottering theni inferior positions. The
anlitl roil is seen, in the drigg'ng of the sacred ermine
of the Supreme Pencil into the du-t of party arena, to
rewunl your Jeffrey? for bis infamous decisions aud
sneakirg deseition us Presideut of the National Cou
rentie n.
Yon have in your Cabinet gentlemen who had a
right to look | rw'aid to the position you occupy; but
following the dictates of ? eellish MswiOR, you have
systematicully endeavored lo w-ak.-u every distin
gn'shed man of the party who aspired to be your suc
MMMa Repeating yonr worn-out expedient of pomp
ous'y reliro g trom tbe contest, you favored no one,
but clni'g to the idea that you might prolong y..ur
rtign another four yours by leveling the chances of
olherr. The extiaordinarv zeal which you manifested
in yonr advocacy of the Lecompton Constitution, wus
pi?mptul | rineipallv by the deieire of hreaking down
the f. rmi.luble rival-hip of Robot! J. Wc'ker. The
Ir'unipliiint MMM ' ffloTi Walker's brave eloquence
m d ikillful statesmanship iu Kansas, e.i. ited the low
BJOMMM of your nature. It wue then that every appli
Ml <? ot fraud and f>t^e was erected into a machine of
..irruption. For the past twelve months you have
nervously watched the Presidential held, driving hack
any aspirant who appeared to be aelvainingtoo rapidly,
fn-'eiid of liyim.' aside- selfish views, and putrio'icul
lv . < ming to the MMM of the Democracy at the ree'eut
ConveiitiM, you tcimed an F.xecu'iv? und Congres
sic nal cabal to force upon the people a dictatorial nomi?
nation, and a platform of HMMMRblo and impractica?
ble issues. A powerful compact minority of Northern
delegates, Federal retainer- flagrantly luisrepieseutiag
their constituencies, and in mauy MMI voting against
direct instructions, failed, however, to shake the true
MMM ntatives of the people, who would perhapn have,
in.!...!, he-en justified iu bolting a nomination ace om

?tlie oLly fields in which the Federal Executive and
C. iignesional cabal had a particle of power?did the
representative s of tin-peopl.- for one moment contem?
plate abandoning the Convention. That such a mau.
and the cliejue around him, should seduce any large
petition e,l del?gales into ihe mad act ot stwesaiori, gives
only thegnatei value lo our t-Usti? institutions, wnich
so rapidly return the unfaithful magistrate to the cotii
liarative huimltssness of private life. The hsBsMMV

laboring however, that National Conventions <?? ?nid

was dispelled ny the triumph of the people at llalli

be was not your mouthpiece and shadow, need.-d a

your own canvass, in declarations of the necessity ot
your cdei (i<u upon the Cincinnati Platform, to -ave the
country. Vou thought the election of Fremont over

Your hands reeking with Deine rutic gore, you thus
essay to cUlivcr over the lutrayed South into the i dis

be marked in hist.uy as the fomenter ot anarchy and

But Ihe essence of y?ui fulae life and cheating words

" at perfect lilierty to vote a? he think? proper.
Cheers from the crowd of your poor office-holder?,
who, of course, ?a,posed you meant them ?not >'/earn?
ing that even you could have so fir forgotten jroufself
a? to inform the sovereign citiaen? that they were ??till
at liberty to " vote as they thought proper. " Hav.r?jj
broken up the Convention?to prevent the nomination
of Douglas and the adoption of the Cincinnati p at
form?you then, from the window of the White House,
take a survey of the Baltimore and Bichmond candi
rlate-" and platform?, and coolly tell the Democracy that
it i? "immaterial'' which way they go.
The "sustaining pillar, ' the " two-thirds rale,' was
?OO fay " b'oken to piece? at Baltimore by the Con?
vention whi.i nominated Mr. Douglas.' No! it wa?
endangered by the unseemly dictation and treacherous
combinations of the " old public functionary," who ob?
tained hi? petition in that Convention fotir'yean? before
by the loyal magnanimity of that Mr. Dougbta. Yoa
take tare, however, to say nothing of the part yew
played in that transaction. Canning is the last facnity
that leave? the disordered mind. The minority that yon
marshalled did not believe that they could defeat the
nomination of Mr. Doutrla? by remaining in the Con?
vention, or tl ey certainly would have stayed. It was
well known to'the minoritT chiefs that Douglas would
have reieived the two-thirds of the entire Convention
at Charleston, had there been no secession. But the
non-intervention nartv, unwilling to take a nomination
except by a two-thirds vote of all the State?, adjourned
the Convention to Baltimoie. Failing in your plot to
nakea nomination upon compulsi?n at Charleston, yon
redoubled your efforts at Baltimore to effect it or de?
stroy the party. Voureflort? may re?ultiu the election
of iiincoln, but in any event yon will receive the con?
demnation of the democracy "of the civilized world for
all time. Influenced by your loading idea of the end
?ei vit ncy of the People'? Convention to Congressional
and executive dictation, you nnwittingly state that if
vonr plan? had been successful no nomination could
bave been pc ssible against the will of whem 7?the
people? Net at all?again*'the will of "Congre??."
Did regretful eileme and modest reserve now indi?
cate in you some ?snse of the error? of your adminis?
trative i ourse?a feeling for our past relations, and
that consideration for old age which is it? due, in ?nno
cei ce or helplessness, would have claimed thought from
me. But your insane intermeddling and arrogant dic?
tation, from the position you occupy, with the patron?
age you wield, make it incumbent upon every patriot
who knows you, to expose your infirmities; that vonr
de?eptive words may have no undue weight, fulling
from the lips of the'IVesident of the United States.
Yourrep'ated declaration in London that you were too
old for the l'residei.cy, was hut too true. Had I then
known your real age. ard some point? of character re?
vealed by the touchstone of power, I should have
avoided my ?hare iu the error of your elevation. Your
present si 'uttered condition of mind has, however, un
dnnbterily been precipitated by the accession of a re ?
sponsibiiity which to your view involved only the ex?
ercise of a willful and domiueeriog authority. I'p
pghtnoss of heart would hive saved yon even amid
the shadows of a declining intellect : but your moral
obliquity deprived you of every stay which, the virtu
mi,, n.in.i i.i set s-e-. ?gainst metitalweakr.es?. Iu old
age the vices and idtogyncracies of youth, it is said,
otten resume their ?way. over long years of interested
repression. Y'our piopuelic quotation against yourself

.Sir: The S. Y.Erpretn of Saturday evening con
tans a preamble and resolutions purportiug to be an
indorsement of Bell and Kverett by the American Gen?
eral Committee. Aa President of that body, I pro?
nounce Thi' Expre** publication an imposition upon
the public, and refer to Thk Tiuhi m of Saturday
morning fer a correct statement cf an nbortive attempt
made by a dozen person? to give a factitious value to
their depreciated stock-in-trade.
In an editorial comment of The Es/treu* on my uc
In n as President of the American General Committee,
in promptly suppressing the attempt of ten imliridualt
to aesDine a dictatorship over the Americans of our
city, I find the following characteristic slain:, while,
in another column ot his sheet, Mr. Brooke compliins
of " vulgur and personal abuse from u cot?mporary,
and affect? to sneer at "ThkTkiiii n undertaking "to
" be the organ of the American party:"
?Thi? Mr. I) ,Mum- bolted and protected againat the Stete

iNow, Mr. Editor, while I can prefer no political
claim to tbe use of your columus, permit me to thank
you for opening them to the kanes' Americans who
bave long been deprived of an organ in this citv. I
rejoice that the magnanimity of fill Tatar VI allows
ne a medium of Jaw replv to the iuce.-sant and malevo?

It is quite true that I protested last year agtinst an
amalgamated State ticket, the adopiiou of winch re?
mit,it in the low tf forty thousand rutel to fir be?
trayal party. But it is likewise true that my prot?t!,
as opposed to the ruinous policy of Mr. E. Brooks, wa?
subsequently indorsed in tkii city, by my election la-t
.January to the Presidency of the American General
Ccunmitee over Mr. lirooks s pet candidate, vko wa*
?tiji atril. I accepted the nomination soltly because it
was understood to lie a tut as to the organization of
our Committee. I was chosen in ?pite of a combined
oppesition by the Ctica ihket faction. Hmc tiler
lu- h r unite.
It i? quite true that I presented myself at the la?e
I'nicn S'ale Convention as a delegate from the Six?
teenth Ward Cuion Club of this city, with credential?
duly signed by our delegates to the I'nion Central
Committee. It is true, also, that, in defiance of all
1 arliamentary precedent, or decent practice, 1 was de?
nied a ?eat in that Convention. Bui it i? likewise true
that, in rebuke of this ontrase perpetrated against my
constituency, the Sixteenth WgM I'nion Club, did at
ome iwithcut my privily, and during my absence
from the city paso ?he following resolution unani?
" Retotred. Thai the del-gate? from tai? Club to the fniou Cen?
tral Coma ittee. be ir?tn:' ted to rep;,li?re the whole pmrtMmm
of the Committee i:t t tica, tnd that they be withdraw n fiom the
Central i i n .i..to ? "
It is furthermore true that tbe Sixteenth Ward
Culou Club has MM adopted the following resolution
I iitininitiiisly :
" Whereat, Onr affiliation with the ?o-oal'.ed 1'nion ornnt<a
tlon of tlii? city b.ia been ?irogated by tbe di-bour.rable aetlnu of

of my constituency, requires u'o comment from m?. I

find myself in antagonism with Mr. E. L**ooks and hi?'
elf-deluded followers.
In my capacity as a memfsevofthe " Hotvfon Eaerri
tive Commit tee,'" and also M a- delegate trot 1 the " Su
Jacinto Club" of New-Yor?, I was prese tit at the
Houston Convention, in Schesactady. Thsr-% I again
encountered the irtfuenee of Afr, E.Brooks who at'
tended in his character of a lobbyist. As as-flat, that
ir.ffnerce was quite barm less. A* ?n America*/, I took
rart in the People's nomination of Houston and ittoek
ton. I am not asha*ned of my aasoe-snteir in this
Peop'e's movement, for I know th'efr aims to l?e Loneot
and their efforts earnest. They* do not play ftst and
loose with the candidates whom they profess t? m$
I ?ball not reply to the Billingsgrt*'? ef Mr. B'OokV?
weak comment on my success nerc*t?Tf>>** in thwarting
his shallow schemes. I have no need to defend my
ceturse, for my record is with the Ataerkan Organisa?
tion from its beginning. I may yst tekr the trouble tc
compare that record with the secret as well as public
Ir.-ioi y of Mr. E. Brooks and some of hit Ctjea collea?
gues, sine* the Winter of IB?ei, when I flrst encounter?
ed them in legislative caucus, and when their broker
;? ge ot American principles first took dehr.ite Quotations
at the poli'ical sto< k-board. For the present, 1 am eon
tent to leuTe these I'tira gentlemen in the enjoyment
of all the public respect und political r>,Mu to which
their position entitles them. Let one of them, if be run,
flare a fit ger upon any net of mine which is not strictly
and consistently American ! Let one of them prove
that I have ever sought an official appointment orplacf
of f molumrnt from any political party ! Let one of
tnem maintain that I have ever bargained, traded, or
even maneuvered, for political preferment or profit I
I>et one of them ?ubttantiate the charge that I was
ever pnMicly or privately in fellowship or understand?
ing with any pol it irai party whatever, save the Amer?
ican Organization, and the present I'eople s movement;
or that I ever cast a vote for any ether than an original
American candidate, save only when I supported
(Jeorge Opdyke for Mavor of New-York, in opposition
to the same " unholy alliance ' thut is now auctioneer?
ing a Union Electoral ticket.
I am aware that, in preserving my political and pe?r
souul integri y, I am strangely 01 t of the I'tica fashion.
I apprehend that, in declining to accept Mr. E. Ilrooka
as my political father-confefor, I lie open to the impu?
tation of being proud, Impudent, and singular; but I
must ieply, with Pope, that?

fn conclusion, allow me to remind Mr. E. Brooks
that vituperation is not force, flipimney is not wit, and
lihaldiy is no argument. It is easier to play the rale
of Thermiten in tne columns of The Erprent than to
enact Warwick in New-York politics. It is not al?
ways safe to apply the Walpolian maxim that " every
man has his price' to such large be dies as entire politi?
cal parties. M hen a man sets himself np for a popular
guide, he should remember that "example is lietter
than pieccpt.' We are told by .?sop that au old crab
said to a voungone: "Whvdo you walk so crooked,
child? VV'alk straight r" ''Mother,'' raid the young
crab, "show me the way, will you I and whou I

A spirited meeting of the Germans in the north?
western part of the city was held list evening at th*
NaiioDal (farden, Fofty-fonrth street, near Ninth
avenue, under the auspices of the (iennan Campaign
Clubsof the Sixteenth, Twentieth, Twenty-lirst, ami
Twenty second Wards. A torchlight procession of
more than a thousand, chiefly members of the Cam?
paign Clubs, marched, with banners and music, from
the ro? ms of the Sixteenth Ward Club, through vari?
ous streets, to the place of meeting, where they were
greeted, ut near 9 o'clock, by an assemblage already in
Adam Rotteten of the XXITd Ward callee! th?
meeting to order, and 0MMI M?.nmhot was then
calkd upon to preside. Messrs. Robert Smroe<ier,
(?eo. H. Maggersnppe. Fred. Skell, Aug. 1'arthney,
Adolph I .unge. Bernanl Hainan. Martin Stranbinge'r,
John W. Marshall. J. Ehret, II. (?erice, J. Nordens

und .lohn May were appointed Vice Presidents, and
Mtssrs. Kobert F. Hillig und Gustavus Levy as Secre?
Fitnu.RieK Kn err remarked the difference lo the
appearance of the Republi.un party to-day, from what
it was four years ago. It was the genuine Democratic
j arty.' the ' ( Irigiaal Jacobs." The si<nsof the times
indicated that the free speech, free press candidates, in
OMOOMM to the Slavery candidates, would beemwued
with su., es.- though not without a struggle.
S1. 1 -v 1 su K u'di.in qnoted from Douglas to show
that he was not a candidate of freedom. It was time
tbe minority should stop governing the mxjonty,
especially wnen the majority was in favor of Fre*?doni
and the minority in favor of Slavsrr. The I ?.-r mans
wanted free homes. In I8?>4 the Sewth would Kirni'li
aany Heiublirans. Nene but the office-seekirwi poli?
ticians among tbe (iermans would have the foioi ?MM
at present to declarethemselve? Derrmem's. It m <?er
rnans bmf ever been contending for tbe true pr inciples
>.f the Hepubli.an party; they were not a Moi ls-seek
illg |>tfilile.
Mr. Li oniNc.TON, a fanner o( Sullivan County,
made some stirring appeals, putting the question
whether the (?ermnns wanted slaves to occnp; f i!,e fer?
tile lands of the West that the- Kep?*hlican par ,y sought
to give to each honest (-iennan workingms n ' The
whites, where Slavery existed, were worse than tho
slaves themselves, in "support ot which state ment quo?
tations were given.
Dr. Sam en F. Tse itinvsR, on of the rev olntiouists
of fKlx, mude a very sensible and pra tiea/ speech on
the issues of the day. The name Democr? ev sounded
pleasautlv iii the ears of i?ermans, in reo ollection of
the troubles which thev hud gone thnmgh but lot not
(?ennarsbedeceivod. Breckinndge and ? MMjUs were
both Slavery men. How shall a nsan like Douglas
presume to say. after the Constitution hi 4 decided all
men to lte> free and e.|iial. that the jwst ice of Slavery
was to be settled by maturities in atsrrit .?ry. (iermans
should not allow themselves t?i be Ml ed.
