The tenible storm of political cbicancery ind intrigue that 'has been sweeping through our country with such terrific violence ice past year," has at last began to subside, and in the wake of its Expiring throes, breaks forth in ill renewed splendor, the bright sun or Truth, whose eulivening and penetrating rays are fast dispelling the clouds of trickery, false- hojd and deception, with which the political mind of our beloved country was deeply and darkly enttirpuded. i Men are once more be ginning to reason and act with each other, in relation to their political rights and privileges, according to the teachings of our fathers, and the precepts of common humanity, whilst ul tra fanaticism and proscription for opinions sake, are rapidly being consigned to the filthy and poluled element from which they sprung, there to remain as they ever have been here tofore, the active auxilieiies of a rude, barba rous, and tyrannical age, diametrically oppos ed to everything that constitutes the code of political principles of a free and enlightened Republic. The great "Native American" or Know Nothing" party, that promised the people so much in the way of renovating and remoddeling the political creed of our country, has through come unfortunate and misguided stroke,-been i-shivered to atoms, in the very first yesr of its advent, and its Uttered and disjointed fragments sent glimmering to the four winds, and like ancient Rome, itsfcatb might be referred to its weight and its vices. We have ever believed, and every day's de velopment but adds proof upon proof, that this midnight institution was never intended by its original designers, to more securely guard the laws and institutions of our country, and to protect the native-born American in his natu ral rights, agoinst the .tyrannical infringe ments of those "Woody fi-rriners;" but for the purpose of remoddeling and rebuilding an exploded political organization, whereby the cunning and the knowing ones might safely possess themselves of the fat offices of our land wealth and position, upon the cupidity ofa deceived people. As a proof of this it ia a world wide known fact, that the Whig par ty as a party, was defunct. It retained at its demise scarce enough hardy followers to give ita old iadei carca se a decent interment it had been trailed and dragged through the dus' until the gravel ofa defeat had actatched the very soul (if it ever had any entirely out of the old thing, leaving it a useless, shopeless, limbless, lifeless mass. To revamp the old sore was the organizstion af "Know Noth ings" instituted, with the additional ideas of Native protection and Foreign proscription, put forth in midnight darkness and secrecy, as a gull trap once more to allure the confix ing, but unwary people. Thousands of good snd unsuspecting Democrats and liberal mind. ded Whigs entered within the pale of Know Notblngism, under those auspices, and we may add thousands of these very men, after being thoroughly initialed into the mysteries of the order, and having seen "Sam" in all his disgusting deformity, have come out again, and we trust, from recent developments, Wisc-a and better men. True, the active ad vocates ot Know Nothingism, have to a cer tain txtent, been reaping the benefits of the uniusi and unholy proscription, but thethun der cloud that closed over the Philadelphia Convention, and left that secret body a mass of disjointed and shapeless ruins, has set those political trickstering office-seeking gentlemen to tremble in their boots, while their brilliant anticipations have been suddenly enveloped as if by magic, with the darkest and most disma I cloud of gloom. The signs of the times tell them beyond all doubt, that the grand scheme f a national Know Nothing party, matured in secrecy and darkness, is a total and disastrous failure that the great princi ples of political equality and justice, that now regulate aritl control the government, cannot thus be subverted and overthrown, and that the great masses of American citizens are not yet prepared to enter upon the unholy pilgrim age of proscription for opinions sake, and par ticularly too, while the right of opinion is written in characters of blood in the great charter of our civil compact. In view therefore, of this state of things, we would say to the Democracy of Preble county, and to all men of free and liberal ten timents, and who are in favor of open end untrammelled political discussion, Rouse up, gird on the armor of industry and watchful ness, for there never was so fair a prospect, so bright a field for the triumph of your much lovedand time honored Republican principles as the approaching campaign presents. All that is required to obtain one of the most bril liant victories in favor of the doctrine of "Equal and e xact justice to all men of what ever persuasion, moral, religious or political," that ever adorned the pol itical horizon of Ohio, is industry and uniformily in action. We have the men, and we have the principles, then let us go forward at once wiib alacrity to the great work. ftyThe Know-Nothing delegates to the Philadelphia Convention held a mass meeting in Washington City on the 21st inst., and af ter the usual amount of speeches, &c, formed a procession and proceeded to the President's mansion, where they exhibted the beauty of their principles by outraging decency and pro priety for over an hour, in swearing and curs ing the President and bis Cabinet, and by i free use of all the vulgar obscenity se com mon when once men set out to accomplish such an undertaking. Jzrnaso.v. was iusul ted in a aimilar manner, in the same mansion, by the friends of the traitor A aeon Bobs. ICTSome of the letters from the seat of war give frightful accounta of intemperance in the Crimea. One from Miss Nightingale rcen lions the scenes of carnage-, and adds: "But to se the stretcher brought to Uie gates every hour, laden with men foaming in the mouth and black in the face, not with the gore of battle, but with the horrible defacement of a foe more dreadful or deadly than the Russian or the plague. Oh! it ia terrible 1" ' (KrA correspondent of the New York Timer, u riling from Havana, says "there ia no dojbl that the Spanish Government intend to abolish slavery in Cuba, and put ,tbe Island uadei the protection of England." 1 THE GLORIOUS FOURTH. Well, its gone, and what of it? On the tth day of July, seventy-nine years ago, the peoplt of the then thirteen infant colonies ef British north America, in number less 'than three millions,. poor and distributed over an illy cultivated area of eight hundred and twen ty square -miles, and hemmed in by a wilder ness of pedatory and treacherous savages, hav ing borne the yoke of tyrany and oppression until their proud spirits could submit to it no longer, "appealing to the Supreme judge or the world for the rectitude of their intentions," solemnly declared that those colonies were, and of right ought to be, Pan and Indepen dent States, and for the support bf this decla ration,, they mutually pledged to each other their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor, and -most nobly did they redeem thtir pledge. . All civilized people have their national bolydaye, but can any of them boast a jubilee vommenorstive of an event so vsst and ao glo rious in its consequences T Let us recur for a moment to facta and figures. These thirteen States, with eighteen others, "chips from the old block," and equally free and independent, far the purpose of establishing justice, insu ring domestio tranquility, providing for-the common defence, promoting the general wel fare and securing the blessings of liberty to themselves and their posterity, entered into a union, created a general government with its power so well and specifically defined that, while each preserves not only its identity but for all local and domestic purposes, its abso lute and unqualified aovereignty in that united character and under one federal head, they are known to the world as a great Empire, their independence acknowledged and their power regarded. They now bathe their eastern shores in the Atlantic Ocean, and their wes tern in the placid waters of the Pacific they rest upon the Gulf cf Mexico in the south, and stretching out to the north over some twenty three degrees of latitude, embraca the great fresh water seas of the continent, including within their boundaries en area of more thon three millions squaie miles, and a population, but little, if any short of twenty-seven millions. Their real and personal property may be set down at 88,000,000,000, having among other things, upwards of seventeen thousand miles of rsil road, alone being of the value of five hundred millions dollars. Their immense and annually increasing products are in demand throughout thecivilized world, and their com. merce enliveus every ses. But over and possible above all, must stand out in bold re lief, the fact that while the industrial vitals of old mother England are consumed by a standing army of five hundred and seventy eight thousand men France by one of five hundred and sixty thousand Russia by one of one million one hundred and fifty four thou sand Turkey by one of four hundred and fif ty seven thousand six hundred and eighty Austria by bne of eight hundred and ninety three thousand, and other European powers in proportion in this "land of the free and borne of the brave," the great and reliable bulwark of defence is found in the virtue, the intelli gence, and the patriotism of the people stim ulated by the publication of some three thou and newspapers and periodicals, circulating annually five hundred millions copies, which penetrate and enlighten alike the stateliest mansion and the humblest hovel, from one ex tremity to the other of the model Republic. Wiih these facts before you gentle reader, would you not say that this Union ia worth preserving f Then, in God's name, cling to it as you would to the last plank of a wreck upon the bosom of the wide ocean. Ten Good Reasons against Know Nothingism. The fundamental objections against the Dark lantern party are excellently stated in the following resolution passed by the Demo cratic Slate Convention in Mississippi. Here they are : 'Reiohed, That we ere opposed to the se cret political organization commonly known as the Know Nothing party. 1 . Because its pro ceedings sre conducted in secrecy, and in principles and its candidates are shrouded in mystery and concealment, and shun the light of day and the lest of free discussion and ex amination. 2 Because ita members are bound by solemn oaths to a blind obedience to the dictates of others in their social and political relations. 3. Because it enjoins the denial of liulh, inculcates and promotes insincerity and duplicity, and stifles the bold, open, manly conduct and conversation which character se the man of honor and the freeman. 4. Be cause it creates an organized band of secret spies in every community, to watch the con duct and catch ths worda of the unsuspect ing, to be reported to their secret night coun cils, and made the foundation of personal and political proscription and persecution. 6. Be cause it is destructive of social confidence, and of all that is dear and valuable in the aocial relation. 6. Because it makes religion a test of qualification for office, in violation of the Constitution, snd to the engendering of ill will and strife among religious seem, to the disgrace of religion, and to the disturbance of the public peace. 7. Because it excludes all persons of foreign birth, of every grade and character, from all political righta and preferment, repudiating the policy of the foun ders of the Republic, and proclaiming Ameri ca shall no longer be "the asylum for the op pressed of all nations." 8. Because it unites Southern men in filial party-bonds and politi cal organizations with the worst elements of Northern fanaticism, and forces them to yield coun'enance to the dangerous, deatructiveand disgraceful movements of Abolitionism. 9. Because It prohibits in spirit, if not in termr, any resistance by the Southern States to Northers aggression or constitutional op pression. 10. Because its organization and ir.ode of proceeding, its aims and objects, its form and spiiit, are subversive of those gresl principles of civil and religious liberty which have ever been, and we truit will ever con tinue to be, the pride and boast of the Ameri can people."

Wise in Virginia a triumph of the Cause of "Education" over "Ignorance." r One of the most gratifying of the resu'tsof the success of Mr. Wist in Virginia is theim-: pulse-it. will give to the cause of education in that Slate. "With bis usual boldness-end in trepidity, Mr. Wise, in all bis speeches, avow ed himself in favor ofa general system of free education for the masses. He did not hesitate to mn counter to all the prejudices of the wealthy agriculturalists on that score. Mr. Flouenet, bis Know Nothing competitor was very appropriitely the champion of ignorance, keeping bis mind closed on, the subject. . We call the attention of the friends of education to the following noble extracts from a speech msde by Governor Wm at Petersburg, on the tenth of January, 1855: ('After saying, "If I am elected Governor of Virginia I will give all, and do all for the ag riculture of the state, that we may m ke a spear of grass grow where none grew before," he then remarks : "There is something more important than this one that embraces every thing, covers all, bounds all, promotes all, saves all. It is that which reachea the inner man of the commonwealth. It is that which is all is all to the people of a republican country. 1 mean public education. If there be any stingy old man in this assemblage, wro values his dollars an i cents better thsn women and children, let me tell him if he does not wish to be taxe I to sustain public education, to use every exertion to defeat me: for I tell him I want a full and thorough system of in atruction to all, and for all classes. "You may tell me of the equality of a peo pie that every man is created equal when the poor man has to compete with the rich, snd, instead of providing food for the mind, cold necessity demands he should obtain food for his mouth. The only true democracy is thst which will reach down to the lowly and lowest in the distribution of its benefits of learning. Does the owner of property com plain to me thst the property he he has arqui red should not betaken for education t Why, what better guard can he have for his property than the virtue which springs irom intelli gence ? He says he has nothing to do with the poor man's child, and he ahould be let alone. Does he know that his property may, sll of it, some day, come be Tore a jury of his countrymen, in which shall be this very child? And then is it not worth all the value of his property to have this child educated, and be able to decide properlv and understandingly as a juror f Does he know that this jury may be called upon lossy whether his willioaa bis will, or whether he died sane or a fool f Does he know that ignorance abases mankind, and leaves them base and dependent! Would he not have the whole mass of the people intel ligent choosers of what was for the best inter ests of the State f How caii you do. this un less vou piovide food for the intellect t "Then fellow citizens, if I am elected Gov ernor of Vireinia I shalt try to extend our sys tem of education till itbecomes complete, and until the whole lump cf the commonwealth is leavened with knowledge,'. Origin of Know Nothingism. We have often asserted, that this foul con ccrn had its origin in those who had applied to this adminstation for offices, but failed to get them. It was sn insatiable thirst for of. Cce that gave it birth j and discarded and cast off politicians have rushed into it as thier only salvation. They have been buried so deep in political, as well as many ol them in moral degredation, that the hand of resurrec lion can never touch them. The New York Past, which is not favorable to the ptesen adminstration, in speaking ot the know nolh ing ratification meeting in that city, ssys: "Amcne those thot were so unwise as t seek notoriety at the meeting on Monday eve nine was Major Andrew Jackson Donelson o Tencssee. lie plead a severe cold as an ex cuse for handing to the reporters a long and feeble tirade against (he present administration at Washington, which he professed to be una ble to read. He would have had reason to congratulate himself if his cold had incapacita'ed him from willing as well as reading it. He had been it will he rtmembered, an applicant to ine President for the offices of minister to Berlin and consul to Liverpool. His qualifications for those places were more correctly estimated by the executive than by himself, and he was not appointed. It is a commom infirmity oi weak men to resent neglect in exact propor tion to the degree they may have deserved it, and ao it proved with the Major. He joined the knownothings for the better cbsnce he thought it afforded him of striking at the auth ors of his disappointment, and has published s speech for them which would occupy a col umn and a half of the Evening Post, in which nothing is so distinctly proved as that he is far less troublesome to the administration as an enemy than aa a friend." Letter from President Pierce. President Pieece hss written a letter to the Democrats of Fredericksburg, Va., who invited him to attend a celebration there in honor of the election of Mi. Wise, in which he gays: "Preeminently prominent as the sons of Virginis have been, from the commencement of the Revolution, for their bo'd advocacy of the cause of freedom for their consistent and pat riotic devotion to the only principles upon which a cover intent constituted like ours can be sustained, it may well be doubted whether they have ever achieved for themselves more distinguished honor than in the election, or have ever rendered a higher service to this Union. "If political heresies and religious intoler ance could have shaken and carried the strong hold of that paity, upon the faithfulness, pat riotism, intelligence and courage of which the country has been obliged mainly to rely in every period of serious danger, whether it ari- sing.from foreign arms ordomesticdissensions, it woulJ hsve been the occasion, H not oi dis couragement yet of profound regret snd sorrow, to those who revere the Constitution under which, as a nation, we have attained such a- mazing advancement and hav realize J socially results so unexampled in the history ol the human race.

The Washington corresponds of the Balti. more S does not think the prospects of the allies taking Sebastopol are very flattering. He ssys-r :- "It is now ten mcnlhi-since the allies com menced their operations la the Crimea, and the results, so far, are very unfavorable to theirsuc- cess. Therr exultation at recent successes is quite disproportionate to any advantage they have gained. They have taken neriscn, wncn they could have at any time, because Rossis did not want it, and have therefore neglected to fortify and defend it. They have aimply used the fort as long as the allies chose to let them hsve it, bat it was by no means regarded as neccessary to their supplies. 'I hey have taken, with immense loss,o advanced works of the Russians before Sebaslopol, which works have already answered their military purpose, and which can be renewed on different lines whenever it may be expedient. 'The Mamelon on a little round Mil, was fortified by the Russians af.er she battle of Inkermann, and, like their other advanced works, had given the allies much trouble by iufiladiiig their advanced works. All these victoiie3 are mere affairs of outpost, but which fnttei away (he strength of the allies without giving them the least important' advantage. t hey have brought the antes now io ine fear ful trial of the montha ol July and Augnsi, hen Pestilence must neccessanly destroy I them by thousands, when sction is impossible snd inaction 'is destruction. The Kussisn strength in the Crimea hss been increased, as we hsve every ressou to believe, to an extern equal to that of the allies; and their forces outside of Sebastopol are so concentrated at fortified points as to be able to keep open a communication with Sebastopol, to resist any attack from the allies, and to be ready at the critical moment to avail themselves of an op portunity to strike a decisive blo'v. These circumstances are nnfavorable to the peace which the allies expect to conquer before Christmas." i , Siege of Sebastopol. Great Democratic Victory — Know Nothing Defeat in San Francisco. The late city election in San Francisco, California, resulted in a brilliant Democratic triumph. The Know Nothings were complete ly routed.
