The Intelligencer characterises the anti
Know Nothing speech of Mr. Barry aa one of
great fluency, and the Know Nothing speech
of Mr. Banks as very forcible. The same
paper advocates the Metropolitan Railroad.
The Union pays its compliments 'to Mr.
Sollers, of Maryland, saying;
Mr. Sollers, of Maryland, has become, in
some sort, the leader 0f the opposition in the
House of Keprese'^ atives. He started with
quite a hurrah; and after attacking the adopte 1
citizens, no? forgetting the "rich Irish brogue '
and ' * ne sweet German accent," which
Bo fascinated Gen. Scott in 1862. and oblitera
ted the early demonstrations of that eoldier
candidate p gainst all adopted oitizens, he at
tempted to make an assault upon the admin
istration of President Pierce, which would
hare come with a better graoefrom a northern
abolitionist. We do not pretend to state the
fact, but it occurs to as, that Mr Sollers is the
same gentleman who, not long ago, busied him
self in offering incense and praise to ali for
eigners, not to say adopted citiiens. in a recent
convention in Maryland, (of which he was a
member.) and who surpassed the most zealous
in professions of confidence in those whom he
has enly lately deemed worthy of his opposi
tion and bis condemnation Be this as it may,
however, Mr. Sollers is entitled to the rare
credit 01 being one of those, who, hailing from
the great Commonwealth founded by Calvert,
and founded, too. upon the broad and enduring
basis of religious toleration, has thought it right
to commit himself to the disorganizes and
revolting doctrines of a secret order pledged
to a rolentless persecution of all oitizens born
abroad, as well as of all who believe in the
Catholic faith.
Persons are preparing for the Hoi
wars wouid do well to examine the adver
n* co' amns of the Star.
Know Nothingism?The speeches of Messrs.
Barry and Banks, in the House, yesterday,
may be regarded as the opening of the bal) in
hat chamber, the movements of Messrs. Sol.
ters^ and Taylor, of Tennessee, being the skir
mishing before the real battle began. We
need hardly remark that the debate of yes
terday attracted profound attention in the
H?ll, the oratorical reputation of the Gladia
tors being very high, while their subject is
very new there. Both sides seemed to be
satisfied with the defence of their view the
champion of both made. So all had a happy
time of it; the anties over Mr. Barry'* exposi
tions of the improprieties of secret political
associations, ot making discriminations be.
tween different classes of citizens, and against
a particular body of Christians, a, to their co
under the Government of
e nited .States; and the Know Nothings
over the roply of Mr Bankg ^ Mr B%TTy
* he contended that the free* born Amer*
1CS'J has th* right to be secret in his political
combinations, movements, Ac , and is justified
in refusing office to who he will, as well as in
refu ing to trust those who, he asserts, owe al
legiance to a foreign potentate.
Keally, both these speeches were able ef
forts each in its way. We regret, however,
that Mr. Banks failed to essay to prove that
:he Catholics, or any portion ?f them in this
country, owe any more political allegiance, or
as much, to the Pope, as the Pree-Soilers do to
Exeter Hall and its ruling ?p:rits, whieh for
so many years ot late have set the tune to
which they dance in kicking up their political
shindies on this side of the Atlantic.
For our part, we have yet to ascertain that
the first item of proof exists going to show that
the Catholics of the United States are not
quite as good citiiens and Christians in all
their personal conduct as any other class of
American religionists. They are as trustwor
thy, as industrious, as truthful, as honest, as
charitable, and as much disposed to mind their
own business as any others, and, under these
circumstances, it will not be long before the
sober second thought of the country will make
it as unfashionable to Guy-Fawk about them
as it now is fashionable to cry them down.
Lut, in truth, wha' is the public business,
now requiring all the attention ?f Congress, to
gain irem a debate upon such subjects in
either House ? That's the question which the
public will desire to have solved.
The Mormons Again.?At our request, a
gentleman who has spent some time in Utah
and knows the condition of things there, at
least as well as any one niw in Washington,
has embodied his views of the legislation re
quired for the Mormons, in the following ar
ticle, in wb'.oh the reader will find the subject
ably bundled, and in a very interesting way :
I have read with some interest the discus
sion of the public press in regard to the cov
ernment of the Territory of Utah, and while
all of them denounce the assumptions of the
Mormona and their peculiar institutions, and
aver that they shall never come into the Union
as a State, no one has suggested a remedy or
intimated a line of policy to nip the evil in its
bud. Some have proposed the appeintment of
Gentile officers, backed up by a military force;
others have thought the appointment of mod
erate Mormons would destroy the infatuation
of the masses to the leaders, and bring them
over to the side of virtue and justice, while
others agdin have preferred violence and force i
In my opinion none of thee? plans will change
the aspect of affairs in that Territory-they
rea^h the branches, but not the root, of the
?PP?*ntna?ntof Col. Steptoe, as Governor
W T!rrit^ry' ^ Place of Brigham Young,
the head of the ehurch, may do mach good.
f m wi,l~pr?v?nt all swindling
of the public Treasury for the payment of
t'i-'iujed up claims, aBd for indemity for fab
rtCated Indian wars, and protect gentile emi
grants from Mormon impositions. But so long
as the legislators and jurors of the Territory,
the main elements in all governments, consist
of Mormons, as they must, Brigham Young
will control them as be pleases, and will be
really, to all intents and purposes, Governor
of the Territory. A unanimous Mormon Legis
lature can pass any law they please over the
vote of the legitimate Governor. A unanimous
Mormon jury can find any verdict they please,
in violation of the law as given to them by the
court, and the same influence whioh oontrols
the Hading, will control public opinion there ,
in cupporting the same. The military, of
course, could neither control the enactments
of the one nor the verdicts of the other. To
illustrate this: Suppose the Government
should order the arrest and trial of Brigham
Young, for embezzling the $20,000 sent oat to
the Ierritory for the erection of public build
ings Of what avail would it be ? Would a
Mormon grand jury find a bill against him ?
Or, if found, would a Mormon traverse jury
convict the head of their church ? Suppose a
judgment in a civil suit waa obtained against
him. how coald the Government reap its
lruitii7 An execution and levy on his property
would aaount to nothing, as none of tne faith
lal would dare to bid against his orders In
the hands of the Government or a gentile pur
chaser, the propertv would be valueless. It
is the knowledge of this absolate immunity
from re^onsibility aad punishment, whieh
they hold in their own hands, that enoourages
them in their defiance of the President and
the Government.
As I said before, the appointment of Colonel
Stepto? may do much good, but will not cor
ryt all the evils desired The President has
! now done all ho can do. He has cleared tho
skirts of his co.?t, and th^ responsibility for a
continuance of the present state of affair? in
that Territory rests with Congress alone. The
remedy is in the hands of Congress, and the
sooner it is enforced the batter. If this sub
ject is deferred until the Mormons embody a
sufficient population to entitle them to come
into the Union, then the difficulty will be
formidable and fearful indeed. The avowal
has gone up from thfe east and the wo.-t, the
north and the south, that they never fchall
corns int*? the Union. The American people
bever will recognize the institution of poly
gamy, nor fraternise with those whose ideas
of civil government are at war with every
principle of republicanism. They oaoDot be1
admitted into the Union, it is said, and if ex
eluded, they will claim to be an independent
government. Occupying tho key of tb^ over
land route to California and Oregon, with the
hostility they entertain Towards the people of
the United Stetos, they will annoy and har-i
rass our citizens and Government beyond en
durance. To avoid these apprehended dan
eors, and correct the evils so loudly don<>unced
y the pre^ of the country, the remedy should
be immediately applied by Congress. It is
as simple as it is effective. No other mears
will seoare the desired object. Let the torri
torial organization be abolished or repealed.
Diside the Territory geographically to suit
the adjacent governments, and assign each di
vision, respectively, to the jurisdiction of New
Mexico, California, Oregon, Nebraska, and
Kansas. While this plan will complotely
strip the Mormon Church of civil authority,
and destroy her power to harm, every citizen
and inhabitant will be secured in every right
and privilege conferred by the Constitution.
They will have the benefit of a representation
in the Territories to which they belong and,
through them, in Congress. This procoeding
will neither bo Vindictive nor cruel, injuring
aone, rni disfranchising no ene of his reiigion,
citizenship, or property.
The King of Prussia has taken time by the
forelock, it seems, and saved himself tho trou
ble of eradicating the evil, by expressly ex
cluding the missionaries of Mormonism from
his territory. But we are a generous people,
and have froely indulged the Mormons in
their religion, fed them, clothed them, organ
ized a government for their benefit, patron
ized them with the offices of the same, and the
appropriation of perhaps an hundred thousand
dollars a year, without an inquiry as *o
whether it went to the legitimate purposes of
tho territory or the church. They have abused
the trust and confidence reposed in them, and
have made themselves odious to the people of
the United States. It is for Congress to say
whether they will continue to appropriate
money to build up and expand this fungus on
the body politio, or whether they will at oree
upturn and destroy it, ere it reaches to a mag
nitude beyond redress.
Worthy of Ifote.?The movement of Mr.
Oliver, yesterday, in reading the speech of an
absent member who is off lecturing at the
North, is a new wrinkle, decidedly, in the art
of wasting the time of Congress. Nine-tenths
of all the hindrances to a proper system of
legislation in tho House hall grow out of the
custom of permitting gentlemen to occupy
their time in the delivery of speeches on gen
eral politics, while they are nominally engaged
in the consideration of other matters.
The idea of extending this practice so as to
devote an hour of their time now and then
to the reading by another party, of an essay
on general politics written by a member who
is off lecturing to literary societies, is tho most
elaborate improvement on their time wasting
practices ever dreamed of. The country
should note this practical change of the
House rules.
A Change of Station ?The new revenue
cutter Caleb Curbing, Captain ;Walder, now
on the Portland station, has been ordered to
the New York station to take the place of the
revenue brig Washington, now undergoing ro

the Eastport (Me ) station, has also been or
dered so to extend her cruise as to attend tem
porarily to the Portland station also.

tary of the Interior has appointed Robert B
Metcalf to bo Indian sub agent in Oregon Ter

Bennett and the Know Nothiigg.
The satanic conductor of the New York
Herald, who is an unnaturalized foreigner,
'endeavors to make the public believe that he
is the ohosen organ of the Know Nothing organ
ization of New Yerk. In yesterday's issue the
Herald's editor says, in a double leaded
"We beg leave to inform our readers and
the public that arrrangements have already
been effected in tho ranks of the Know Noth
ings. both in New York and Virginia, which
render morally certain the defeat of Seward
for the U. S. Senate by our new Legislature,
and also the defeat of Wise, the Democratic
Cabinet candidate for Governor of Viaginia."
" Statesmen, politicians, and journals be
longing to the old rotten parties, both Whig
and Democratic, are daily coming in and join

is destined to purify the American atmosphere,
and to set at nought the efforts of the Aboli
tion disunionists of the North, the Sece?si"n
disunionists of the South, and the foreign in
fluences that may have been courted there or
elsewhere "
The Mirror truthfully says of this hyena of |
the press:
"The Herald, for years the pander among
pauderers to tho foreign elements of this
country, and the be littler and ridiculer of the
United States in every possible way. until it
came to supply the whole European press with
"flings and sneers" against Amcrica and
Americans, is now disgustingly subservient
and advisory to the Know Nothings "
