MURSDAY, MARCH ,15, 1855 TO OUR PATSONS. Whea we first contemplate J the publi tiilaa of the JVue JtatnVan, we deter mined to go upon tho a J vancc system, and iuued our prospectus accordingly. We hare no been ia operation for. nearly three months, aud we are Sorry to say, that but Terr few of our subscribers have paid us one cent. 'Why is this the case? Can they expect us to carry ou tho paper at our own expense ? Prices of labor and paper are high, and cost money every week. Will the friends of our euterprizc leave us to struggle alone and unassisted, when the subscription which they justly wwa us, by their own voluntary act, would plaoo us above embarrassment. We know that times are hard, but is that a good reason why an editor should be crushed by 1000 of his friends, either of whom are able, with a littlo exertion to pay ?2,G0 We are thankful to thoso who have prompt ly paid- they have dona their duty, it was right. f" Our correspondent, America's, seems to entertain apprehensions that some of the editors of Ohio, professing to favor the American movement are not acting in gooJ faith. We aro free to say, that if the suppo sitions of Amerieus are well founded, there ar no terms of contempt too strong to be applied to . Buch double-dealing political bypeeritta. If they suppose that they can muuco nonorame men, wnose arucccuents are Democratic, to become silver grey Whigs under a new name, they will be most signally disappointed. Nor do we believe, that any honorable man as a member of the American party whose antecedents are Whig, would favor the endorsement of tho proceedings of such a convention as the one above contemplated. Our frieud Amerieus should banish from his mind, such, uncharitable views of his brethren, and entertain higher and more exalted views of those who aro laboring to promote the glorious cause of true Ameri a&a interest. t"By accident, we caught a glauce at the "Wheeling 2'imet, the other day, in which the editor seems to insinuate that the True American has been rather offi eious in noticiug the locality of J. T. U. We have only to say, that if the Times bad been posted in the matter, it would have known that wo were fully authorized to lay all we said ou that subject. By re quest of the editor of the Times wo have been sending the True American to that office for two months, but have never been favored with an exchange. Well, we must try and get along without it. Still, how ever, if the Timet should think proper to admiuister to us another fatherly admoni tion we hope to be favored with the paper ia which it is contained. NEW PUBLICATIONS. Stanhope Burleigh. The Jesuit in OCR HOMES. 410 p. Stringer & Townsend, New York. Whoever wrote this boolc is no novice in the machinery of party politics, aud is equally well acquainted with the doings of the political "green-room" and its actors. The story is characterized with a vigor,, truth and energy that will impress itself upon the mind. While we are carried away with its romantic incidents and tartling developments, we feel convicted of its truthfulness. Before reading it, we had no idea that we had in our midst, , such an infernal machine as this Jesuit- torn. The characters are no creations of the fcney, but their originals exist among us. No one can fail to recognize in Hu bert, Woolsey, Fouche, and Lovcbhtek, their counterpart, under the characteriza tion of the author. We pity the imbecile Vioenzi, and the lovely Geneord, most heartily detest Padro Jaudan, Woolsey and the whole tribo of demagogues, and with Burleigh vow that "this Land of Light, Truth, and Liberty, shall suffer un der the blighting curse of demagogues, Jesuitism, and foreign influenco no Ion gor."

Mr. Ragan : Since the ''ides of Oc tober," the Union man has lost no oppor tunity for calling us hard names, impeach ing cur motives, and misrepresenting our actions. . He has watched over us as closely as circumstances would permit, but his eyes were so darkened by the results of that "eventful dav," that he can see noth- ing good in the organization that kindly gave him leave to stay at home, and at tend to his "interests" at his own expense. Lit was all very well," and, doubtless very pleasant for him to leave our business to take care of itself, and come back to see to his ''interests" at our expeuse, so we must ueeds reward him for .his faithfulness and disinterestedness. As his 'interests" were of more importance than ours, we conclu ded to let him have all his time to devote to them. But, evidently, he had not an ticipated this turn of affairs, aud it seems that it was as unpleasant to him as it was unexpected and hence his peculiar sen sitiveness. By trying to carry water ou both shoulders and some on his head, he spilled, it all and wet himself badly, and ho has been "lying in his damp sheet" ever since. And the avidity with which he seizes every thing calculated to villify and slander us, and the great zest with which ho serves up the precious morsels to his readers, proves quite plainly that his sores are very deep, and need frequent and careful dressing. And seeing how often he uses his favorite salve, we are led to suppose that it must exert, at least, a very soothing influence on his sores j and we have no doubt that it will prove about as efficacious as any of the nostrums and cure-alls that he puffs in his paper. Con sidering the peculiar symptoms of his case, and the severe affliction that befel him, we are willing that ho should continuo to put it on thick and strong, and we seri ously hope that he may receive great ben efit from its application, $nd be speedily restored. In his paper, of Feb. 28th, he publish ed an extract (the strength, wc suppose,) from a letter from Bloomfield, and we re fer to it for the purpose of setting him and his correspondent right, in regard to our Order in this township. For the benefit of both, we can inform him that one Sam was out here a few weeks ago, to get things in train for the spring election ; and in ono respect, we acted upon the Union man's advice, for we "put 'cm right through." We have lost no votes here yet, neither are we likely to, and for the truth of this statement, about tho first Monday of April, we will produce a very convincing kind of proof. If the Squire, who writes from Bloomfield, could have seen Sam, he would have known better ; but as he could not, he has no reliable statistics, and is therefore, quite a Know Nothing. Last October, when the Squire discovered how smoothly tho compound lever worked, he suddenly became very anxious to get ac quainted with Sam, and in his efforts to find some mutual friend to give him the desired introduction, he ovorheated him self, took a backset, and has been quite sore ever since. The Fablo of the moun tain in labor, can give you but a faint idea of tho pain and travail that the Squire has endured for four months past; and lo ! he was not even delivered of a mouse but he brought forth a poor little misshaped thing, which the Union granny remodeled and furnished it with a head. The Squire says that we have become " tired lying and swearing ;" but as we do nothing of the kind, we are not as tired as he suppo ses, and consequently we aro yet able to walk out about once a week not to an old deserted cabin nor dbal bank, but to a warm, well lighted room, where we coun sel together, and have "freedom of speech" to as great extent as reasonablo men can desire. He Bays that "when men have to bind themselves by a terrifying oath, to deny the truth, it is tough times," and if any men are thus bound, we think so too; but wo know of none unless it be the Union man and tho Squire. However, we think it is'very doubtful whether dame nature ever wasted any of tho precious truth on such worthless raw material, but if sho did, dark and terrifying indeed, must have been the oath that they, long since, must have taken, bindi ng themselves not only to deny the truth, but to employ its substitute on all possible occasions. In the same paper, he quotos a paragraph which states that one feature of our Order has been changed so as to admit Protest ant citizens of foreign birth, and seems tr think that he has found something very healing, and pronounces it "a shallow de vice to get votes." Well, we are disposed to admit that ono who has tried as many vote catching expedient as ho has, must be a pTctty good judge of such devices ; but with the remembrance of his signal defeat, fresh in our minds, we assure him that wo shall not resort to the same sys tem of tactics. But he tells us that he does not oppose us because we defeated him last October though he felt very sor ry, because many of his "friends had laid beta" on his speed, and lost their money ; no, he opposed us entirely "on principle" rV .. 1 ...... 1 11 l ..iv urn yes, we understand an aoout that an eight dollar a day principle, entirely. In order to put a good face on his disclaimer, he tells us that he "was repeatedly solici ted" to join the new order, and wa3 assu red that by doing so he would "secure his election." Here, in his anxiety to show I his, integrity, ho went too far for- his own benefit, for ho betrayed his ignorance and thus manifested that he never was urged to join us. Every member of our Order who reads his statement, knows that it is not correct, for we never "solicit" and nrge men to join us, much less do we hold out tho promise of a fat office to induce them to come in. We think, that last October, he saw some of "the hand wri ting on the wall," and had no need of a Daniel to Interpret it, and we assure him that he will see some more of it hereafter, wliich he and various others may easily understand. WAYNE. Bloominodale, March 10, '55. Pur the True American. LITE IN THE WOODS NO. 1. TI1E HONEER. The. life of the Tionecr has, usually, been regarded as one of hazard and toil, without relaxation and without recom pense. Nothing could be more erroneous. It is true, there is a demand for physical exertion; but what ygniucs that, when the soul is serene and calm ? It is time that there is hazard; but who, that has felt the wild cxhilcration, which conscious danger always imparts to the brave heart, will not say, that 'even this brings a rec ompense with it ? The warm fresh blood, as it leaps from the heart aud courses through the veins, gives vigor to the sys tem and buoyancy to tho mind. Free from the vices and corrupt associations which are engendered in the crowded thoroughfares of town, aud placed in im mediate communion with nature, the Pi oneer stands, as it were, nearer to his God. The songs of the happy birds cheer him at his toil. The velvet moss, tho grassy knoll, and the gay flowers, impress his soul with a uew beauty; and when the labor of tho day is done, he feels as no one else can feel, the luxury of sleep. He rises in the morning, fresh from his invig orating repose, and with his axe on his shoulder, goes forth to conquer the "howl ing wilds," and make the "wilderness blossom as the rose." And who is there that would not envy tho feelings that rise in his bosom, when beneath tho repeated strokes of his sinewy arms, he beholds the giant oak, which for centuries has defied the strong winds of heaven, topple in its height, and with a crash like the shriek of despair, lie prostrate at his feet ? If were an artist, and desired to represent the triumph of mind over matter, what more fitting design could I fiud, than to exhibit the Pioneer, with rolled-up sleeves and axe in hand, standing upright upon this fallen monarch ? Again, the Pioneer is tho true Philoso pher. While others spend their lives in speculations and dreams; while theory succeeds to theory, and system gives way to system; whilo one subtlety begets an other, and men weave out from "the stuff that dreams are made of," a thousand codes, and call them all philosophy, the Pioneer starting with tho little that he knows, gives to that little a practical utili ty. He embodies his thoughts his phi losophy in the expressive language of material form. He gives to his ideas a tangible being, and thereby benefits him self and his neighbor. While systems of false philosophy must pass away, his will endure forever. The labor of his intellect and hands, will afford a home and a hearth stone for succeeding generations, for ages yet to come. Bread shall grow from the fields which he has cleared, and nations shall thrive by the labor of his hands. The proud aristocrat that rolls in luxury and wealth, is, in the eyes of the true phi- osopher, but a pauper, fed from his boun ty and clothed at his hands. Without him the title pf "king," would be but a bye-word aud a mockery among men ; and the character of "great" would be as a skeleton hung upon the horns of the moon for the angels, to laugh at. Whatever distinctions or titles there may be among men, the human family has ever been divided into but two classes producers and non-producers workmen aud drones digits and cyphers men and things. It is unnecessary for me to point out who compose theso two classes. I will leave every man to draw his own in ference. But this much I will say : that if the many who seek to obtain a prpenri ous subsistence by pandering to the depra- ed tastes of mankind ; if the many that grind down the faces of th5 poor ; and if the poor themselves, would fleo from the polluted atmosphere of the city and place their dependence upon the unfailing laws of nature, that universal good would be the result. Wc should no longer have the cry of "hard times" ringing in our ears; capital would no longer be the master of labor; but our nation would thrive and our people be happy.

THE 4TH OF, JULY CONVENTION. Mr. Editor : When wo entered the ranks of the "American party," we did so under the impression that it was to be an organization,' entirely distinct frouij and independent of cither of the old parties. We supposed that it would stand upon its own bams, and not lean upon either of thoso "bruised reeds." It is, therefore, with surprise, that wo notice a disposition ou the part of some of the journals, that profess to sympathizo with the American movement, to suffer it to be swallowed up by one or tho other of the former politi cal parties. Some desire to fuse with the "defunct iYhig party" wliich (like Her cules' monster, as fast as one head is knocked off, has another ready to stick on) has been ' reanimated, under the name of "Republican's" or "the peoples' party." For ourselves, wo like the old "coon" just as weU by one uanic as another ; and do not profess to have' any sympathy either for him or his old antagonist. Let them put on what dress they will, their "ears" will stick jt ; and there is no faith to be plaited incm notwithstanding all the flattering premises they may see fit to make. We are utterly opposed to any coalition with either of them, and hope that all "two Americans" will be deaf to all their music ; "though they charm ever so sweetly." What principles have they in common vith us, that should induce us to fly to their "outstretched arms?" Surely, thosj who have ever been ready to pander to foreigners and catholics for the single purpose of obtaining their votes, cannot claim fellowship with us. The true position for us to maintain, is, to stand aloof from Whigs and Democrats; let them bold their conventions, and nom inate then candidates; construct their own platfurms and vote for their own men; and let the "Americans" do the Bame. Let them rally their forces, and depend upon theif own' strength, and they CAN NOT fail, AMERICUS. Know Nothings. The Statesman ap- pears to be in a bad way about the Know Nothings. It heads one of its Telegraph dispatches, "Know Nothing Victories, Fire and Navigation." In its editorial columns we find what it calls the "Official Proceedings" of the "Grand Council of Know Nothings," "Published for the Mil lions in the Ohio Statesman," dated Cin cinnati, October 30th, 1854. If the report be a correct one, and we suppose tho Statesman knows it to be so, the Know Nothings in this State must bo thicker than frogs in Egypt. In the Grand President's report, signed by Wm. T. Rees, it is said, "The growth of the Order is without a parallel." We see that one of the Charters is numbered 744, and there may still be more, as the ist is still to be continued. The amount of funds set down, as received for charters. fees, dues and certificates, being 7,356,75 If the Order is going ahead at this rate. we don't wonder at the alarm manifested by that paper. We feel a little slighted that the Statesman should be selected as the official organ of the Order in Ohio but we do not see how we are going to help it. We shall not forget this treat ment. These "Sam's" are unaccountable in their movements. O. S. Journal French Railroads. A Paris corres- pondent of tho Newark Advertiser writes as follows : The French cars are much more com fortable than the English, a fact which take pleasure in recording on account of its uniqueness, it being the only particular I have yet seen in which comfort appeared to be studied. The first class, besides luxurious cushions, and a thick sheep skin carpet, are supplied with long, flat tened cylinders of copper, filled with hot water, renewed at intervals, and affordin a most agreeable warmth to the feet. What a contrast to the English cars, in which I froze for seven mortal hours be tween Liverpool and London ! And how much better, too, are these cylinders than tho close stove with which our cars are heated. Putting 'em Through. At Cincin nati, the "powers that be," are putting violators of the existing State Liquor Law, through after a "rough" fashion. Ou Tuesday last, before Judge Spooner, Isaac Bott, proprietor of the Levi House, corner of Fifth and Sycamore, was tried by a Jury upon the charge of selling liquor to one J. T. Legg, an ex-Policeman. He was found guilty and sentenced to pay a fine of twenty dollars and costa, and to be imprisoned in the county jail for the terra of ten days.

It is also his duty to examine, file, and report upon all appli cations and recommendations for offico ; he is much consulted as to the recommenda tions of applicants, and has, in fact, the fate of almost every aspirant for office in his hands. Under such circumstances it is very evident that to secure a favorable opinion from Mr. Hill, one would need the names or letters of Roman Catholics, to satisfy the church that no enemy to its doctrines received official favor.

And even this one exception Mr. Stubbs has endeavored on oovorol oocaaiona to remove, and has only been restrained from doing so by the influence of prominent citizens of Washington, who personally represented the case to General Pierce. Several of the officers tbovo named were educated at tho Georgetown Jesuit College, and tho mana gers of that institution are no doubt well posted up as to the secret operations of our national bureaus, and the private trans actions of each department.

Attempt to Kidnap a Free Negro in Pennsylvania, A daring attempt was made at Harris- burgh, about a week ago, to kidnap a col ored free boy, named George Clark, by an ex-police officer of that place, aided by two colored men, one belonging to Harrisburgh and tho other to Hollidaysburg, Pa. It appeared upon examination that the boy (Clark) was lured from the house of a colored man in the upper part of the bor ough, where a dance or "hoc-down" was going on, to tho white man's residence, near the depot of tho Pennsylvania Rail road, under the pretext of getting some brandy for the party. He was taken into the house by the two colored villains and taken up stairs, when an attempt was made to secure him. The boy fought desperate ly, and made his way to a window, which he knocked out with his hauds, with the intention of leaping to the ground ; and upon th cry of "murder" being raised the whole neighborhood was immediately alarmed and the people ran to the unfortu nate boy's assistance. When first discov ered, ho was dangliug from the window, some thirty ol forty feet from the ground head downward, and the white man and his wife holding on to his feet. Clark was rescued, and two of the kidnappers placed in prison, but tho other managed to make his escape. The principal had a hearing and was re-committed in tho default of eiooo. The white man has been tho stool-pigeon of certain parties of tho South, for a series of yeaTS, and was guilty of many mean transactions in the way of slave catch ing. This is a plain case of kidnapping. and tho defendant could not produce an iota of proof to operate in his favor. He was caught in the act of attacking a free man, or rather boy, who it was shown in evidence, was born in Carisle, Pa., without a warrant or other official paper, and this being one of the numerous unlawful acts perpetrated by him, tho result will be propor application of the new law upon the subject. t ' BgNew 'Counterfoit $5 hills on tho North Western Bank of Virginia, are' in circulation inJPitUburgh. .

Mr. B , aud a party of his jolly English friends who had been dining out, concluded to patronize tho opera on that evening, and Mr. B ,whose rotundity was considerably better filled with tbo spar kle than the rest, had taken a front scat, and was saluting the song and sentiment of the occesion at every "wait" with "un bounded applause" by clapping hauds, and vociferating "bravo !" " bravo !" brave ly. Presently, like an electric shock, came the cry of "fire!" The audience started suddenly for the door, though their retreat was checked to good order by Mr. Rice,'; the manager, who was on tho stage at the time. Then all was confusion, aud each member of the company, in endeavoring to save the property, &c, of the profession, was rushing backward and forward in ev ery direction across the stage. Meanwhile our friends outside had mis sed their comrade, and thiuking, perhaps, that he might be injured, one of them step ped up into the boxes, just as the fire was bursting through the end of the building in full volumes, and Rice crossing tho stage with a sido scene on his shoulder.

Jt3TThe Amcsbury (Mass.) Villager tells a good story of an exceedingly anx ious individual, who was "most crazy" to obtain somo account of tho Know Noth ings. He was told by a wag, one day last week, that if ho would como down to , that night at ten o'clock, and advance fourteen paces in to the barn, ho would there find a party to initiate him in due form into tho mysterious order. The prop osition "took," aud ho accordingly went to the place at the time appointed ; he had scarcely entered, however, when ho was aluted with a most unceremonious "grip" in tho rear, which caused him to vacate the premises in quick time, leaving a part of his "hinde?" garments in the. teeth of a careful watch-dog, whoso owner had giv en him tho euphonious' title of "Know- Nothing." Beautiful Sentiment. "As the vine, which has long twined its foliage around the oak, and been lifted by it into sun shine, will, when the hardy plant is rifted by tho thunderbolt, cling around it with its caressing tendrils, and bind up its scattering boughs; so it is bountifully or dered by Providence, that woman, who is the mere dependant and ornament to man in his happier hours, should bo his stay and Bolace, when sinijtcn with sudden ca- amity, winding herself in tho rugged re cesses of his nature, tenderly supporting the drooping head, and binding up the broken hearted.

Ho receives for reply, "probably a hundred." Offico holder slaps his hands in ecstasy, and exclaims, "wo can knock the temperance humbug cold." When he meets an old temperance man whoso vote he wishes to get again, ho lav ishes upon him a broad sardonic grin, and shouts "Stand Firm, we havo about upset these liquor fellows; elect me and my party again particularly me, and wo'll give whiskcyitcs fits."

We make the fol lowing extract from a communication pub liihed in the Now York Times : It is said that complaints have frequent ly been mado at ; Rome by the. Papal hierarchy from this couutry, that th&. Cath olics of the United Ttates have been un justly deprived of their Bhar of those sa- . cred and miracle working treasures which the Romish Church possesses and guards asl the property of the whole body, but which she has placod" in various" churches in Europe for safe keeping. " "Also, that a request has been made by the present rep rcseiitativcs of the American Catholio Church at Rome to have Borne of thoso sa cred relics transferred to the United States for the wsd of tbefaihfuland to nourish the piety and devotion of that' numerous class of worshipers, who, since their emigration to this country, havo felt thoir faith and piety growing weaker for want of the nu--triment wherewith they were accustomed to animate and invigorate them ; and that his Holiness, in consideration of tho ze&l wUh which . tho' American prelates have sustained the new dogma,' the Immaculate Conception, has ordered them to be provi ded with two Madannas, celebrated for their virtues and miracles, the one a wink ing, and the other a weeping Madonna, and " that on tho return of these Prelates they are to bo installed with pomp in tie Ca thedrals of New York and Baltimore, the winking ono to remain in this city for one year, and then to be removed to Bultimore to take up its abode in St. Patrick's. A gseat revival of religion is expected to fol low the announcement of tho new dogma, under the auspices of these Madonnas; the winking Virgiu sealing the truth of the dogma when announced by the moving of her eyelids, and the weeping Virgin by drop ping a tear at tho expression of all doubts on the subject .; It is aliso said that they are to be furnish ed with somo of tho "wood of the true cross," from Genoa, two of the nails of the Bame from Venice, and ono thornr from the" crown the Savior wore in his last agony. It was suggested that the holy coat at Troves might bo very useful to revive the zeal of the lukewarm in these distant parte; but it was finally concluded that as that sacred relic had occasioned a great scandal at the time of its last exhibition, and crea ted a decidedly Protestant movement rath er troublesome towards Rome, it would .not be safe, just yet, to oxpose it to tho gaze of so many infidel eyes as this free land contains. His Holiness then offored to lend for a short time those sacred rolics which had been exposed for adoration du ring tbc past year at Rome fur removal of the cholera, to be exhibited here in case that pestilence vibitcd ns next season . Should we cscapo tho scourge, toberelura ed as soon as convenient la Rome. Theso relic.-', it may bo remembered, according to public announcement made last spring, are tho linger of St. Peter, the arm of St. Rotque, aud tho thigh-Lone of St. Dennis. Whether these have been accepted, and are to accompauy the other idols, our in formant is not able to fiay. It is consid ered peculiarly unfortunate for tho piety of the faithful in this couulry, that thero are no St. Roman's, Wells or martyr shrines,, or other liko holy spots, where the pious may resort to keep alivo their faith and zeal. And this defect nis Holiness sccms disposed to supply, to a limited extent at loast. If thoso things aro to take place, and ru mor with he thousand tongues should have spoken tho truth, it will form a now era iu tho history of this city, which since ts foundation has had no visible godess to adorn its temples, or sacred relics to per form miradles. Spiritual-rapping, with all its mysterious and inexplicable wondors will have to hide its diminishnd . head in presence of tho winkings of the one and tho weepings of the other Madona, and tho miraculous cures which will bo performed by tho dead men's bones.
