THE SECRET ORDER. BY ONE INITIATED. RAVENNA, January, 21, 1855. U-thiy. in private nnd i.i public, viz., Know-Notb EdiToh or Bcoi.E : Inasmuch n sonio have seen proper to write to yon concerning thing most a. isMiredly believed ainoiig us. 1 also deem it right ami proper that I should contribute somewhat in addition to w hat has been already w ritten. t wish to Infoi m you, and through your eieel I tit paper, your reader, thnt fine of your nntt slavery friends hn been so silly fl to 1 C caught in tho political gull-trap called Know-Nothingism. It is :vn tihl adage, thnt "an open confopsion i good for tho oul." I feel that it i good fur me to cnn less to "all tho world nnd the rest nf mankind," that your h hie servant ha been through that political slaughter lint;e so much talked about now ingim, or to give you the real naino nf the new child, the "Snpirind older of tin? 6tar-pnngta4 Banner." I said I had been (lirolihi nnd now I witfh to say to tho public, that l hnvo learned it let- son which I hope will fortify and help me in the futuro to bo i n try gnnid, Ktccinlly jun Lcfote an election. Is it not strano. that those very men who con sider Jesuitism dangerous to freedom, and chiefly so because it is a Secret Organization, have been the very persons who have set up nnd established Know-Nothingism. Howbcit, this man Know Nothing wa exceedingly wise above all the politi cian that ha I gone before, him. He knew that the-anti-slavery sentiment had been working its Way into till parties, insomuch that a great majority uf tho people were dissatisfied with their positions, mid desired something new. Ho know, too, that Catholicism by nil IVoiesttints, was considered vey dangerous to our liberties. j knew what h could do, if ho cout l only get hold of and stir tip llm il.-l" 1... .... ..-..' l! - 1 is'J oui ncfisb i roic-sinm prejouico nfrinnrt Komanistii. He knew bravely that all ho had to s-iy was. the l'.ipist bo rpon thee, Protestant ; a id they would bo stirred from north to south. He knew that through this prejudice ho could swear them into n unit, as tho Priest thrjugh ig norance swears Papists into n unit. , Know-Nothingism has taken advantage of all possinle cii cunistiim r. It ha profited by tint dissatisfaction in Ihe Democratic ranks. It has seized ipoit dead Whigs, in market cheap upon Fiee Soilisin, only a child then getting hold of joldrotton sectarian prejudice, it secured till Pro testant pretended ministers of the gospel, for you know that Protestants may and do grow cold in morals nml religi. n, and can crucify the Son of God nlVcsli, in the person of hi little ones, can beastil'y and chattelize thn weakest portions of hu manity, and by th? most infernal of all inhuman enactments, can hunt down and persecute lite flee ing bomlimin, from city, lo i-ity, enn nt'.cmpt to de throne God himself, but never, never can they grow cold in their hatred of the Rnimin Catholic. Doubt less it is very courageous thus to fight old preju dice, rather than contend against a giant national sin. Then, talcing hold nT tho People's candidate, they could conio out a, id claim a Know-Nothing vict iry. But, my anti-slavery friends, what victoiy! Where are nil those Free Soilers? A great majority uf them nro in this Order, and if they retn.iin, tlicir mouths nrc closed on the anti slavery question. If the Free Smler hated the two B iliiuiore platforms, what shall ho sny when he refect up in his present condition? lie pre tended to It ito slavery heretofore ho considered it a'sin ; but Know-Nothingism knows nn sin, but original sin, mid no sinner but tho Papists. And he who could subscribe to either of the Baltimore platforms, how can ho look u'on this last of all platforms, with any degree ofallowance? I should think it would only be - ecessary for nn nnti sla very man to read that ) latfinm, to I e convinced of its entire pro-slavery character. We will luuk nt two or three of its articles. 'Ae i.-art institutions an 1 American scnti-nents.' This is all the burden of the eighth article Jn tlie rigimil manuscript, but our Brother Hull evi lenlly was u it satislied with the platform himself, ind lerr graciously imcrtcd "Freedom the right if till law its defence no slavery extension." But what nro American institutions what are "American sentiments?" 1 answer.' slavery with iitt end, 'The mu.dest pniteetii.il to A met it nn in. terests;'.' in the name of l eaven, what belter pro tection does slavery insist upon? "Citizenship granted to foreigners only by ceinl act of Con gress." This would cut nil" a large miijoiity nf Protestants themselves, and here Aould be taxa tion without le.iresentatioii, which in some di rections is carried to a great enough extent M i e.idy. ' Fornmlii n of m ietirs to n tret nil American interests.' I should think we had societies enough already formed, but evidently the South does not ' think so. They wish mora ; so that it would Le impossible for a man to escape out of their hands. Suffice it to say that- this new platform gives alt that t'.io slavoholdci could desire, ' Now I have heard our G irrisonian nholitionisti lectiiro upon slavery.
