We are not sure but our people deserve the rebuke administered in the subjoined article, from the Richmond Dispatch: We observe by the Northern press that the number of arrivals in New York from South Carolina, of families en route for the Northern watering places', is juite as large as at any former period.

Since tho oxpurgalory procoss of the Know Nothings at their late meeting in National Council Assembled at Philadelphia, in separating from the Abolitionists, and removing tho secret feature from the order, we are more favorably inclined to their enterprise, and9with a little further improvement, would cheerfully adopt their ontiro creed, which, as it now appears, is. less objectionable than wo ever imagined it could be. We publish to-day their new Platform and Principles, and candor compols us to acknowledge thai we see nothing, absolutely nothing, in those to condemn, or, to. which. any true American can tako exceptions. We have read and examined with flome degree of particularity the several articles therein contained, and make this statement advisedly, in contradistinction to previously expressed opinions, nor do we consider that the charge of inconsistency, or about-faoing can be laid to uj*. 'circumstances alter cases,'is a trite proverb, but'a a true one, and the man who never changes is the most inconsistent beingon earth. So then we haveqhang^d , concerning the Know Nothings 1 Not they have changed certain objectionable features in the pbase'of their organization, viz: copartnership with .the Abolitionists, Ac., and now justice requires that they should have a fair and candid hearing at the hands of the: American press; this they can, and shall have from us. " fK Wo objected, and we think very properly, to tire ; order, under its first regime upon the grpond that all secret political comoinauonp are dangerous instrumentalities in the hands of popular factions; on pretty much the same principle that we now do the application or enforcement of the fez nonacrtptoof.Hia Honor Judge Lynch; masses rarely reason, and there is* no telling how soon the maledictions of such, might b6 visited upon the beads of all who choose to differ from the popular majority. We never want the South to engage in any political crusade where underground operations are performed, let us always come out in the light of full orbed day, and meet the onemy bold jy anu use men. xu&t papal influence is last getting too strong cannot be denied, and we should be glad to see its growing energies curtailed, but our idea is, tbat A practical and effective mode might be adopted with* out retorting to what may appear to be persecution.? Wo suggest tbat Protestants have a care to the education of their children, send them to Protestant, and not to Catholic schools, where their young minds will likely become vitiated by the abominable -heresies of the Romish Church, Lei Protestants educate their ohildren as such. We never can agree to the dootrfae that error most be combatted by error, two wroaga never can make ono right. Let ns a? Araoricans, as Serihern men, as Protestants, meet this question as we should, be'true to ourselves, and then, y& can be true to. others. . We are opposed to all political concaves, Baltimore - * * " t -4 . r * * Rational tiopVcntions in particular, and systems which combine incongruous elements, representing as they : dp, the ultraisras of every conceivable shade and class politick interests in our huge and unnatural Gene- I ral Government." I How true Southern men, heretofore have been able t to amalgamate an(J co operate in their political coun. i oils with such men as have characterized for tho most < part th080 National Conventions, wo are at a loss to 1 determine. J The new Plutform of the American party, 1 strikes boldly at " tho corrupt means by which tho 1 leaders or party havo hitherto forced upon us our 1 rulers and our political creeds,'1 and avows its "dis gust for tbe wild hunt after office which characterizes j the age," inculcating the admirable maxim which ob- 1 taincd in the " purer days of the Republic," that ' "office should seek the man, and,not man the offico/ j these points are roost admirable, but wo fear it will be a hopeless task to expect them to be ever accom- j pliehod.' ' Tbe 12lh Article of the pew sories relating to tht slavery question is all that we ought to expect or want 77taf carried out by the American Party will j at once satisfy us, that there is something safe and j .practical tor the South, in the doctrine of the new order. The withdrawal of Wilson &Dd his party has j relieved vory largely the Know Nothings - of the abo- j lition odium. That batch or negro plunderers, and political hucksters, who put every thing down subor- j dinatc to the elevation of their own vile aims and that of ,tke|r rapacious party, will take, off a .terrible load, wbicji.the southern wing never could hdvo sustained. $ time alooe can satisfy the Sooth upon the point wheth* < or or'not the 12th Article in tho new schodule of the ] American party Will bo nationally observed. "We recommend to our readers a careful perusal of the new i document which this Article refers to; We have been i decidedly opposed to the Know Nothings, and must < see some good fiuit before we can speak more confl* t dently of' the value of the tree. _' < h ? . i m 11^ m ? * ( . -a c rune Eiipevicui TlVe Barnwell Sentinel referring to the expect- ( eel business visit of John Joliffb, Esq., of Cincinnati, Ohio, who is coming on to take possession and dispose of the effects of the late Elijah j VVi'lliams, of Barnwell District, gives us to un- i derstund that a little fun may be expected. r The reader is probably acquainted with the 1 history of this affair which may yet furnish food 1 for a rich tragedj* The deceased, Mr. Williams ( was regarded a wealthy man. but so low and de- 4 o . " graded that ho sought and actually took to him- < self a negro uencli, for a Wife, with whom he lived ( publicly and reared several children, to the dis- i grace of himself and mortification of his connections. t In order to free his blood, he conveyed his stock to Cincinnati, and willed them his properly with their freedom, As legal adviser, Mr. Joliff2, a notorious abolitionist, was selected and appointed legal ^ executor.. To carry out the provisions of the 1 will and Testament of deceased, the Executor ' must necessarily visit the homestead and take possession of the property of the Testator. As Joliife is expected on in a few days the 1 Barnwell Sentinel of Saturday last remarks: "We 'rust a large majority of Barnwell citizens ' may be found ready fur duty, We are permit ted to hope, that if this rank abolitionist should 1 put his foot on her soil, and the case does not terminate in blood shed, he will to sapthe least j of-it, receive a Jolijee in tar and feathers, and perhaps be rode on a rail so let him come and ^ bide the consequences." " it ?.-sh uj. irooolUnited that during the last ses- ' sion of our Legislature, a case was orought before thd U. S.
