At the Annual Session of tin- State Council, held -in Cleveland. June 5th, 1S55, the follow ing riiitfonn uf Principles hs i xpieasjve of the fcentinuMit of the Order in thin Slate, wa adopt ed and ordered to be published to the world over the signatures uf its officers : We proclaim to the world the following PRINCIPLES OF THE AMK1UCAN PARTY OP OHIO. . I. The unlimited freedom of Religion dis connected with politics hostility to ecclesias tical influences upon the affairs of govurument equality of rights to all naturalized Emi grants who are thoroughly Americanized, and owe no temporal allegiance, by reason nf their religion ; higher than that to the Constitution. II. No interference with the rights of citi teuship already acquired by Foreigners, and the protection of law to all who honestly emi grate from love of libeny ; but the exclusion or foreign paupers and. felons, and a refusal to extend tho right of suffrage to all who come hereafter until they shall have resided 21 years in the United States and complied with the Xuturulizaliou Laws. . HI. Opposition to nil political organizations composed "exclusively of Foreigners, and to r'on-lgn Military Companies, and to all attempts to exclude the Bible fiom Schools supported by the government." The foregoing are the first three plunks iu the Platform of "Principles of the A inerican Party of Ohio," as recently pro claimed to the world, by the State Council at Cleveland. Iu advocating the princi ples therein set forth, cs well as through out the cutire platform, we do it not by way of excuse or defence, but as questious rijht in themselves, founded upon Truth, Equity, and Justice. These planks embrace all that is said and held to, us to the rights and privileges of men foreign born. Contrary to what has been aud continues to be said by op ponents of the American party, it will be seen that nothing is here demauded but what we, the American people, who con stitute and support this free government have a perfect right to demand nothing to which evcu our foreign bora citizens, cau, with propriety, fairly object. Knowing how important it is to our country, that "pure religion, and unde filed," should eTor have a strong abiding place in the hearts of our people, aud that between man and God we waut no gover- mental interference, we require in the first place "unlimited freedom of Religion." Every man shall worship God according to th dictates of his own conscience. No union of Church and Slate. No legisla tion for this sect or that ; but laws general, which shall treat all alike. A religion so entirely free of all restraint, save of its own holy influences, which shall exercise that moral control of man, that he will think of doing only that which is. just be- tween man and man. A religion which having inspired men with pure and holy aspirations, will not endeavor by use of its church machinery and priests, to interfere in political matters, cither with the people at the poles, or with public officers at seats of government. In thus contending for unlimited freedom of Religion, which American Principles and American Gov ernment has heretofore secured to us, and whjch we intend, by the samo principles and government, shall bo transmitted to our latest posterity ; wo therefore must un coinpromisingly, oppose any church or sect which shall endeavor to exert undue iu tluence upon the affairs of government or which shall cluim from its members temporal allegiance higher than that which our free Constitution, and just and erjui table, government secures to all. A fre church, uutramclled by government, to lend and keep men in the ways of inorali ty and holiness j a free government, by a free people, unmolested, in political mat " tern, by ecclesiastical influences, or priest ly power. To such freedom in Fieligion, ueh entire separation of Church and Sutc, we think no man in this country can object,' be ho native or foreign born be ho Protestant or Roman Catholic, unless indeed, it is the wish and intention of such a man, t subvert our free gov ernment and people to tho dominion of his particular ehrirch. ' Not only can no man objeet, but every' American will feel bound to support such freedom of Ileligion,'. and consequently, to oppose such church usurp- tion, be its head at homo or abroad more ef-pcoially ilj (.broad. . . , .With equal liberality of sentiment, the sentiment of tho true American Democrat , i j principle, flo'we admit the immigration of worthy oppressed foreigners. The fugi- live, from juounrchlcal oppre&siuu, who," from love of liberty, seeks protection on our shores, will ever receive 'he light hand uf welcome from every true American. This country waa consecrated by revolu tionary blood, as ad asylum for the op pressed of all nations as tho home of the free. By ivj, mast it so be transmitted. Therefore must we title heed whom we odniit.iuto tho "American family. No more should we receivo to the bosom of the nation, than to our private homes, the vagrauU aud felons of Europe, whose dis honesty at home, compels their govern ments to banish, and unjustly foist them upou us. Suh meu, whose heaiis know not honcity, can never mako truo Ameri cans. . To such our gates should ever be closed. . But to tho more numerous class 9. " 9.5.1 w (111 15 00 lot loieignors, "wnj noneuiy emmigrate J1111," i from love of liberty," and come among us that they may bo free, and beproteetcd by our just aud equal government, are wel come. In due course of time, after hav ing become thoroughly Anuriianiied, and having entirely absolved themselves from all temporal allegiance, by reason of their, birth or religion, to any King, Pope, or other power, which by consent or implica tion, reserved or expressed, they recognise higher than that of our Constitution,, they may be admitted to the full rights and privileges of "American citizens. Wo propose "no interference with the rights of citizenship already acquired by Foreigners." But to all who come here after, we shall claim, as has ever been claimed from tho beginning of our gov ernment down, that foreigners shall not be admitted to the full rights of citizeu ship until they shall have been among us sufficiently long to be entirely weaned from their native country, to become wholly identified with us, and to have be come acquainted with the principles and workings tf our peculiar system of gov ernment. The wise heads, who after hard fighting, established this confederacy as one of the nations of the Earth, declared in the Constitution that "no person ex cept a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States at the time of the adop tion of this Constitution, shall be elligable to the office of President." They also provided for the snactuient by Congress of uniform rule of naturalization." Thus, from the beginning, recognising a difier- ence in eligability to our highest office, between the native and foreign-born citi zen j aud requiring of the foreigner a sol emn oath beforo attaining citizenship. No one pretends to deny the right of govern ment to make such requisitions no ,one honestly doubts their propriety. Congress in the exercise of its wisdom iu establish ing a uniform rule of naturalization, re mired a probation of five years before the alien could assume the final oath of citi zenship. For a long time, while migra tion was slight, and confined mainly to a good class of foreigners this term did very well. Of late years, however, circutnstan ces have changed. The gates of Europe ppear to have been thrown wide open, ni in perfect avalanches have their pco- !c abandoned their native homes, the most depraved and vicious, the most igno rant and priest-ridden, as well as some of tho more intelligent end wealthy. The xisting law of naturalization, provided for tho time when comparatively few, of the more intelligent foreigners, sought homes among us. Ucing few iu number, and scattering over our broad-spread coun try, they readily assimulated to our people, habits and customs, and, iu course of Cve years, might, as a general rule, be qualifi- d to discharge the duties of an American citizen. Uut coming as they now cto in vast hordes, and concrre atins in extensive settlements together, where their original habits, manners aud customs, and even their language is preserved unmixed, such persons, under such circumstances, in com ing to this country, merely change their phce of habitation. Instead of mingling with our people, learning our manners, habits, customs and language, they isolate thcuiEclves, and transfer to and perpetuate in this free country, the notions they learn cd in their own piqcavchy. This being now tho general custom of foreigners, it is hard to say how long it would take such people to becomo acquainted with our in stitutions, civil and political, if indeed they would ever become Amcricnuized. We know not upon what basis of sound reasoning the procrustian rule of five years shall always be maintained. To reason from the circumstances as they were, to what now exists, certainly five years is now far too short. How often do we notice about our larger cities especially, "politi cal organizations composed exclusively of foreigners," kept up on the same plan, and often with the same, or a very similar object, to what the members supported in fatherland. How often too, do we find military companies composed of foreigners. Thus, iu both civil aud military organiza tions, perpetuating thcir.'pcculiar notions and prejudices, which' they brought over the water. Is this tho way to become Americanized, to be qualified to discharge intelligently tho duties of an American citizen?. We disclaim till antipathy and prejudice against our naturalized fellow citizens, or agaiust worthy foreigners who seek a peaceful .and independent home among us;' We do not say but that there may be a few, among the many foreigners who immigrate to theso States, whose in telligence will eiiiiblo them in comparative ly short time to bocomo Americanized, but for tho gicnt masses,' coming as they do, and holding' together, in such way as to tirevent rapid ' UHttiuiuhitiou tv our people aud governments, demands an extension of the time of probation before naturalization, if the free, happy institutions of oureoun try are to be perpetuated, for the good of our children and dieirs. , In a free country, with unlimited free dom of Eeligionr wa waut the best of .schools supported by the Government, wherein children of the richest and the poorest may alike be educated aud quali fied to discharge intelligently the duties of free citizens. In the schools, we elairo the free use of nn open Bible, wherein all may learn the holy doctrines thcreiu taught their duty to God and to maa We have thus, even at the expense of giving our article au unwonted length, endeavored plainly to avow our convictions upon the subjects herein treated. With out harboring or intending any ill feeling toward any class of men, wo claim the American liberty of expressing our opin ions, especially when we arc convinced, as we doubt not all men will be, who dispas sionately seek more the good of our coun try, than of party, that if we would per- j petuato unimpaired, our free institutions to our children's children, as well as to the ofTst)rin2 of foreigners who seek homes among us, the time has now conic, when some such measures as are indicated in the above resolutions, must bo adopted. Amer ica must never become European. Amer ica must ever be kept American in thought, feeling and government. No Democrats? Tito hunker-democratio organ of this county publishes what it says "was done, and is to be done" at a meeting of the Know Nothings'' of this city, on Friday evening last. As wo were not present at any such meeting we cannot vouch the cor rectness of the report. But if the publi cation is at all true, it would appear that this redoubtable slave organ continually belies itself as to the aforesaid Know Nothings. Instead of the American move ment beiug a Whig scheme, as has been pretended by the hunker pro-slaveryites, it would appear, if the "Union's" publi cation is entitled to any credit, that gen tlemen who have been prominent in the Democratic party are now engaged in the people's movement the real Democratic party. No one ever doubted the genuine democracy of such men as John S. Pat teison aud AbncrL. Frazer. Thesenieu, in years gone by, fought nobly tho democrat ic cause. When they were Editors of the Union, often did their vigorous pens rally the democratic cohorts to battle. But it is not at all strange, that such men, with hundreds of other sensible men, should cease to cooperate with the present hunker democratic party. True Democrats keep pace with the demands of the times. Hence arose the American party composed of the best men of the old democratic mid other parties. No Democrats in the Amer ican party 1 Bah ! The Union has al ready belied itself, by publishing the names of a number of prominent democrats which it says are now Americans. For this reason they crowl. The American party is the true democratic party. The "Perjured Scoundrel!" The Bomhdi hunker organ on third St., in speaking of a worthy portion of our iiat. uralizcd citizens, who do not submit to dictation from Borne, and its priests, says that the man who takes the oath of allegi ance under the constitution of tho United States, and theu will never rote fur am un for office who holds the Catholic religion, is a perjured Bcoundnl I If temptation offers, look out for him in the Penitentiary- If any there oro so infamously base, they should be kicked with a pair of sharp toed boots clear out of the United States. A free country, where indiidual faith and regard for legal obligations, is yet consid ered as entitled to some respect, is no place for such unprincipled scamps." Well this is something new ! What say you protestant foreigners, when you were naturalized, and swore to support the con stitution of the Uuitcd States, did you think of knot?, that you thereby swore allegiance to tho Pope (f Borne, and mud vote The Proscriptionists. . v Washington, June 10th, 1855. The Cabinet have had a long and exoiting ses fcion to-day. I was informed by gentle man high in anthority, that one of the Cab inet was strongly suspected of Know Noth ingism. The President informed a gentle man this evening, that Wilson, Comiui? sioner of the. General Land Office, Clayton, Second Auditor, together with one bun died and ninety clerks, wf-re to be decapi tated as fast as they can find persons to fill their places. Exchange. '. ; ' . It is all right thul Pierce's huuker do mocratic admiuistratiou which hangs its hopes upon slavo owners, Jlomish Priests and Foreigners, should dismiss two hun dred good Americans from office for opin ions sake. But this samo hunker demo cratic party, great organs aud small," big leaders aud little, endeavor to bring our people in hostile array, because Americans, would nquiro foreigners to become thor- ou gh!y Americanized, before assuming the privileges of citizens. Take that beam out of your own eye ! We Deny tub Act. We e publish ed in certain newspapers, a scries of strong pro-slavery sentiiueirs, said to be the plat- firm and principles adopted by tho Amer ican National Council. Now wo profess to be an "American," but we repudiate all such'scntiments, and deuy the adoption of any such platform by the National Coun cil. It is ttuo the National Council recently assembled in Philadelphia, and from what we have observed in the newspapers, it ap pears that the question of slavery exten sion excited some warm debate. But be fore tho adoption of any platform or prin ciples, delegates fiom thirteen etates se ceeded. The convention therefore ceased to be National. If pro-slavery sentiments were adopted by any Bet of men, they alone are responsible for them. It was not $e action of the National Council. The Amer ican party is not bound by such action. We repudiate the sentiments. Pro-Slavery resolutions suits only tho administration party and hunkers who stand upon the Baltimore nnd Columbus platfbrins. The Union and True American. A controversy of eomo warmth occurred iu the city a few days since between two gentlemen, on the following question, viz: Which of the Weekly Journals las the largest number of subscribers within the city limits ? It was confidently asserted by one of the parties, that, in as much as the Union had secured the publication of the letters remaining in the Post Office, it must have the largest list of subscribers, or the Post Master must be at fault this was regarded by some as conclusive. Now wo disclaim uny intention of boasting on this subject, but it is duo to all parties, that wo should say, that the number of subscribers to the True American is p ob ably more than three to one over the Uuion ; and yet the Post Muster is not intentionally at fault. It is claimed by the Post Master that under the law governing the case, the first week iu January is the only time when that question can be de termined, and that as the True American did not commence its issues until the 4th of January, it cannot compete for that privilege until Jauuary 1850. We have not laid the matter officially before the Post Master, but having heard him ex press bis views on the subject, we have thought we would not demand official ac tion, as we care but little about it. Tiie "One Idea Party." From the tone of their press, and the action of their leaders, it would appear that the pro-sla very democracy, ore horribly troubled about the ghost of "Sam" "Know Noth ing," which they say prowles about at uiaht. But "one idea" animates them tho Know Nothings must be put down ! Sam must be crushed out. Oh thou hor rid ghost ! oh you vile "Sam" ! ! oh poor "one ideaists" 1 ! ! Advice Guatis. When hunker dem about hunting hunker whiss, as for Roman Catholics? What then say . mw t,,,ir flwion tanker you Americans all, foreign and natural born, to this new intcrpre'.aion of oar cher ished constitution? Surely tho ltomi.ns arc getting bold already ! Are we really in bouduge to the Pope ? Peace Disturbers. Tho old-lino politicians are endeavoring to raise a terrible hugh and cry, because the Protestauts of Cincinnati intend to cel ebrate the approaching 4th of July with out the Boniau Catholics. We know not if this is a fact or no, but supposo it is, have not the people of Cincinnati a right to celebrate the 4th of July how and with whom they please, so that t j cy do not in terferc with other's rights'? Most certain ly. Komau Catholics have frequently cel ebrated the 4th of July, to the exclusion of Protestants. Certain Protestant socts have held celebrations to tho exclusiou of other sects. Politicians, have celebrated the 4th by excluding their oppuueuts, and yet whoever thought to complain? No one. , It wasjiot so necessary thcu to croak. But now the old hunkers find themselves deserted by the mass of tho people, they seek the support of foreigners, jand of the Roman Catholic priests and church. ' To secure llteir aid aud votes, they endtavor to foment prejudice, and excite envy, by foreiguers and Romanists, against Ameri cans and Protestants.' To what desperate work aro the hunkers driven, thus to excite ill-feeling among the citizens. Behold the agitators and sowers of discord ! ticket, they had better fir.-t make a few in quiries of "Sam," and find who to apply to. Go on with tho fusion, gentleman, but do noi over fret in tho hot weather. Iu due course of time, "Sam" will send out his good boys to maim go tho affairs of Jefferson County. Work up that pro-sla very WhigDemocratic RomishIrish Dutch Fusion ! Km a I it well 1 1 B&,This morning we happened to open the Paladium, a sheet published at New Lisbon, and find the Editor down on us, with even more than his usual powers of argumentation. There is nothing in nil ho says but down-right personal abuse, to which we can make no reply. We pre sume that the gentlemanly Editor is enti tled to the same excuse which Pat plead for his indiscretion to' his Priest, for at tending a Methodist Prayer Meeting: "May it plase yer rivcrance, me father con fessor, I hope ycr grace w'.ll grant poor Pat yer pardon, for the rason that he was so drunk at the time that ho thought he was ou his way to the confessional." JtirUpon re-consideration of tho subject wo have como to the conclusion that wo were bound in justice to Dr. Caldwell, to publish his defence against the attack made upon him by the Editor of the Union, and J. It. Nuilor. We have ,no tasto for that kind of controversy, but if cer meu desor ved to be chastised, tlwy are the men, and the Dr. has done it up with a witness. -' For the True American. - Dr. Caldwell'i Eeply. Ma. Editor : I hope my friends wil Bear with me while I proceed to reply to the attack made upon me in tho American Union of which Andrew Stuart is Editor. I shall in the first place pay my respects to J. R. Naylor. The certificate which falsefies me bearing the official signature of the Clerk of Brooke County Court, as if by virtue of his office a greater degree of credit would attach to his word, has its iniquity conceulcd to citizens of another State under cover of an official signature. This J. R. Naylor, who, I am told, is an enemy of mine, and has not 6poken to me for some time, because, at the meeting to which ho alludes in his note, I called him a political weathercock, (which I am prepared to prove, and which many of the citizens of Jefferson County know) has prostituted and trespassed upon the honor and credibility of his office by affixing his extra judicial (quasi judicial) signature to a falsehood in order to give himself, and his certificate, a reputation for veracity, which a largo majority of tho respectable citizens of Wellsburg would scorn to award him. Had J. R. Naylor, ClcrR, affixed his signature to .an order of Court com minding tlie Sheriff to summon all the Ju? ticei of the County to attend die May term to lay the levy, instead of affixing it to a poisonous cud for this long-eared pois onous radiator, he would havo been faith ful to himself, his office, his country, and his commonwealth. And now to tho ques tion, Is Mr.Naylor a responsible man? one entitled to the credit of belief ? After enumerating his metamorphoses I leave the reader to decide whether or not he is worthy of belief. The first knowledge we mvo of this remarkable personage, ho was a Buckeye School Teacher master of mathematics to "the rule of three," then a Whig, afterwards a pro-slavery Virgin ian, then a Son of Temperance, afterwards buys ten gallons to recant with then a Democrat, then the ucalogon of the Wells burg Sebastopol and finally that he is a great grand son of James Naylor whose tongue the Protestants bored through, (ac cording to his own statements). My opin ion is that it was bored with a big auger, otherwise the hole would uot have been descendible, to such an extent, as to make a visible flaw in the tongue of the fourth generation. And lastly as to Mr. Naylor, is what he certified with his clerkship's signature true ? To this end we introduce the following certificates signed by men whose veracity cannot bo questioned : To all whom it may concern This is to certify that we were present at tho meeting to which J. R. Naylor, Clerk, refers in his certificate, signed wi-h his official signature, published in the A mcrican Union of the 5th intt, and do hereby certify tho charge he makes con cerning G. W. Caldwell is untrue. THOMAS BOND. GEORGE TOUTS. DAN. P. JACOB. I was present at tho meeting to which J. R. Naylor alluded in his certificate of tho 23d of May, and have no recollection of G. W. Caldwell having used the lan guage that he there represents. . W. D. TOREYSON. The meeting, at Avhich this conversa tion should have occulted, was one ap pointed by D. E. Smith for the purpose of exposing the American Party. Dr. Smith led off in a speech denouncing tho party in the strongest terms and charging upon them actions which never had a being, he was followed by J. R. Naylor, who eli minated the contents of his little caliber with great vim, (consimilis culictm incor nu Jiovi.') In my reply to those inou strositics of error, in tho presence of the gentlemen and their audience, I assured them that all they said was void of truth, and I was there prepared to prove it, or at any other time they might indicate, to which they did not uor dare not reply. Having failed in their effeminate assuult upon the American principles, captured in a net of their own plaiting, phantasmago ria! prisoners with the my thological Tanta lus, they seek revenge on me, and send certificate to Mr. Bumbrick, of Hancock county, a Roman Catholio, who having served their treacherous purpose with it, in secret, to my injury, communicates it to tho editor of tho Amerioau Union, (with itt official tignaiure) to give cred ence to a lie he had formerly published. This Editor, whose ink is the dark dis tillations of a frigid heart enveloped in the treacherous clouds of a boreal sky, has attempted to represent me in a very odious light, personally, politically and professionally liko a starving sorpent on an arid waste seizes upon tho veuoin of a Catholic allianco, and their subsidised apol ogist) poisonous arrows hurled at me by the priest-ridden iron-heads of dagger T Johi' and Pius IX' to awe, to intimidato, to silence me in my attempts to acquiesce in tsserting tho rights of American citi zens in' preference to tho claims of tho Papal See.

And now, Mr. Stuart, how did you begin in life ?, modesty admonishes mo toj withhold, a the prescut time, what a gentleman of your acquaintance charged you with,' the even ing you attended tho ball in this town, tho 7th iust, and foe which he saidyou eluded tho police of Pittsburgh by climb ing into the garret of tho Mercury office. nave or have you not been guilty of vul gar, illicit, licentious acts such as would place you infinitely below tho moral and virtuous of your .own genus ? Yes, you loathsome serpent, it will mortify you to learn that my character is better known in your own Congressional district than your own, and known to be, I am proud to say, invulncrablo to the rabid virus of a strang ling blackguard, croaking with the venom of a green forked tongue that could not call his father by a decent name. You sir, who have the effrontery to teach politi cal morality, came, pursuant to an invita tion, to participate in the hilarities of "the ball above alluded to, and when you came the first thing you did was to violate the courtesy of our village by getting drunk, and tho next thing you did was to show a bad example by getting drunker, and third ly you shocked tho Iron-heads by getting drunkest, and when you attempted to reply to a toast, your speech was so-grating to your party they called on the fiddler to proceed with the music, and they to waltz ing by which they compelled you to de sist from braying, and to let go the table which supported your reeling form. You then attempted to quarrel with an officer and began to feel for your knifo when you were instantly surrounded, and a rope was called for with which to hang you an officer interfered aud conducted you to the hotel, and left you in the company of your bacchanalian phantoms till morning and when day dawned you left by express before breakfast ridiculed by all parties. He seems to wonder that I noticed what le said of me he says he ouly made "a soft impeachment." Why sir, you are not capable of making any other kind. I am sure your speech in Congress was a soft one, and those who read it, and those who voted for you felt soft, as they indicated by not voting for you a secoud time. This last purgation has reduced him to such a poor, pitiable, political skeleton that ueith er the milk of office, or of human kind ness can ever transform him into the sym metry of an honorable man. Respectfully, G. W. CALDWELL. Wkllsburq, June 11. Tho Tribune mentions a report that the Germans in the 19th ward, Brooklyn, are forming a military organization for the pur pose of resisting by force the Prohibitory Law, which goes into effect on the 4th of July. Exchange. Is it not high time for Americans to a- rouse, when foreigners, without feelings of gratitude for being admitted tosnch a coun try as ours, will organize themselves into military companies, for the purpose of re sisting, at the point of tho bayonet, en forcement of our laws? Are such milita ry organizations proper schools iu which foreigners will learn to be good American citizens ? And yet the American Demo cratic party is strongly opposed, because it would require such men, who knew ouly, as they learned iu their own country, to oppose laws by powder and sword, should remain here long enough to learn the pnv ileges and responsibilities of Americans before they receive the full rights of citi zenship.

A number of the relatives of Mr. Willis who are all in comfortable circumstances lived near him, but seldom visited his resi dence. His housekeeper was a dark but very shrewed mulatto woman whom he purchased with her mother, brother and sister about thirteen years, ago.: This housekeeper's name was Marry Amy El more Turner.
