His corpse was taken to a temperance meet ing, nnd an appeal was made by the Speak er for means to buy up and destroy all the liquor in town. About 500 were raised, the liquors bought, the deuh-rs binding themselves not to sell !iqur in the tiwn again, and an alcoholic I.enCic was made in the street, the whole town, men, women, and children, turning out to witness the holocaust of society's arch-fiend.

During tho pest few days, certain busy bodies, who had better by far bo engaged in some honorable business, have been cir culating all sorts of slanderous stories about us personally, nnd about our paper. Tbey have been trying to pursuado persona to withdraw their patronage from the Journal, Loping thereby to break it down. They havo gone to our subscribers and tried to prevail on them to stop their paper. Now a e know what we are talking about and can prove the facti, nnd if we hear of any more of their operations they will be dealt with in a manner, that they littlo anticipate, nnd the community shall all know what influen ces are made use of and the names of the men engaged in it. Wc have lost three subscribers by them already. What are our friends doing for us, to enable the Juurnul to continue the exponent of right principles in Fremont? Send ia the names accompanied by 1,50. We have always been aware tint the Con slituiion of thu United States requires thai none but ualive born citizen can hold theolGcsof Preaidrut. Jiut this is the only excrpiiou, that we know of, to tile equal participation of natu ralized citizens in American privileges, recog nized by the National Constitution. The Jour nal rxpnonda the Constitution badly when it says that tho states may "forever prohibit for eigners from voting." No such power is given to tha States. -Democrat. The above is the worst interpretation of the Constitution we have ever seen. Con gress alone possesses the right to make naturalization laws, and they may require a residence of forty, or any other terra of years; or they may refuse to pass any laws upon the subject, and then all foreigners would remain foreigners during life. We construe the Constitution rightly when we say that each and every Sl.ito in the Union can forever prohibit foreigners from voting. That power is given to each State, not by the Constitution of the United States, for the States never delegated that right to the general, government, but is a part of their reserved sovereign rights. Each State makes its own laws uKn the subject, and in a number of them even native born citi zens cannot vote, because they have not the requisite property qualifications. In Ohio, every white male citizen oflheageof twenty-one years is a voter ; in New York, tiegroe have the right of voting, and in the Carolinas, none but such as bare the requir ed amount of property, can vote or hold of fice. The right to the elective franchise does not depend npon ' being naturalized, but upon the organic laws of the State, in which the naturalized citizen may happen to reside. A naturalized citizen may vote in Ohio, but if he removes into Indiana, he may forever be debarred that privilege, if the Constitution of that State, prohibits him from voting. Not only this, but each Stale may make a law to prohibit any man being elected a member 'f Congress, unles he is native born, that power being granted to the States, by the national Constitution. And in New Hampshire, our neighbor's patern Democratic State, Catholics cannot hold of fice. This is the only Know Nothing law we know of, and tLis in the most intensely Democratic State in the Union; a Slate that has never wavered in its attachments to all the destructive principles of the modern destroyers. Neighbor if you have never learned that each State can forever prohib it all foreigners favim vo'ing, you had better commence the study of the nature of our government, and the respective rights of the Stales in the shortest possible time, and not attempt to instruct others in matters, of which you are entirely ignorant. 5r"Ballville" has passed over the ques tions we put to him and as we expected he would do, has given n negative answer to each of them, notwithstanding which they hit him in a sore place as his fluttering evin ces. To satisfy bis mind on the questions of his, we answer thnt we never, to our knowledge had a nomination for Clerk, and the remaining ten we never heard of before reading them in the Democrat. o jC3T For the last few weeks the editor of the Democrat, has seen nothing but Know Nothings, hears nothing but Know Noth ings, dreams of nothing but Know Noth ings. There is a Know Nothing in his bed, a Know Nothing in his boots, nnd the ghost of a Know Nothing haunts him as he grinds out his Know Nothing grists. The Sag Nichta had better appoint a body-guard for him. He will, Morgan like, come up mis sing some of these days we fear, and then the Know Nothing Lodges will be search ed for his remains. o ; 05" The Democrat, has of late been ve ry much taken up with K. N. exposures, we have this week concluded to give a few chapters on the Sag Nichts. A very inter esting article will be found on the fourth page. Tho authority no one will question, Mr. Joiixes himself admitting its genuine ness. The Sag Nichts are in operation in tliis county, nnd we intend (o keep an eye on them. Will our oieghbor of the Demo trnt he!p w in the matter 1 The Sag Nichts. It is perhaps not generally known in this community how, when and where this So ciety was organised, and weproposa to give something of its history. At the late Loco foco Eighth of January Convention in Co lumbu?, a caucus meeting of the leading members was held, at which was brought up for discussion the best policy to be pur sued in opposing tho - Know Nothings Sawyer and Leadbetter fought gallantly for the old land marks and usages of the party, and advocated an open and free fight. Gen. Wilson, of Seneca, Dimmock, of Erie, nnd McLean, of Hamilton, were in favor of fighting the Know Nothings with their own weapons. They said "they went in . fur fighting the devil with fire." Dimmock said that the Locofocos" had already organ ized several secret societies in his county, upon the same principle as the Know Noth ings, except that they invited all foreigners to become members. After a long and stormy discussion, the question was taken and carried, "that it be recommended to the Democratio party throughout the State to form secret political societies in every ward of a city, and in every township in a coun ty, which all foreigners shall be especially invited to join; but from which all Know Nothings, known to be such, shall be care fully excluded for the purpose of putting down the Know Nothings, and for the gen eral good of the Democratic party."" These are not the exact words, but the substance of the resolution. Wilson, Dimmock and McLean were se lected by a committee to carry out the res olution, and they have been just as busy and faithful to the fulfillment of the project as they know Low. Two of the party lead ers from this county were there present, nnd since their return they too have been very zealously affected with a desire to have their party reorganized with the SagNichi attachment. In some of the counties they are called, as in this, Sag Nichts, in others Know Somethings, while others are called Say Nothings. Mors American Citizens. On Tues day last the New Hampshire election came off, and the canvass was tho most excited one ever known in that State. The efforts of the foreigners to carry it was unprece dented in the annals of politics. A few days before the election ttvenly-lwo Irish men were naturalized in the town of Exter alone, every one of whom would vote for slavery extension, and directly against the interests of American citizens. As General Jackson said, is it not time we should be come a little more AMERICANIZED ? It is by the admission of such men to citizen ship that our liberties will finally be subvert ed and made subject to the dominion of a pretended religious despot. Fremont and Indiana R. The.Findlay Courier says: "We are advised by one of the operators on the Fre mont and Indiana Railroad, that the iron will be put upon the track and the road put in running order as far as this place early next fall, and probably to Lima and St- Marys. It is confidently expected to get the road in running order to Lima, at least, during the fall. This should encour age the fiends of this road to take courage and hope for its speedy completion. It will bo an important event to the people of this county to have the facilities given them which this road will afford." Who Were They! We understand that the citizens of Clyde were honored on Wednesday evening of last week, with the presence of a brace of legal gentlemen, one of them from this place, the other fiom Townsend township, fur the purpose of forming a Sag Nicht lodge in that town. They found that such ideas would not take root there, good Republican seed Laving been sown long before, they therefore departed by rail, considerably crest fallen. These worthies think if they can only push the Sag Nicht association through right, and can get role enovgh, one of them will be Senator of this district, and the other Representative of (Lis coun ty, to the next Legislature. They'll find that it's a hard road to travel o The editor of the Journal acknowledges his connection with the Know Nothings. Democrat. The editor of the Democrat can make as many such assertions as he pleases. He has pretty well established his reputation by making false charges against us, and we do not sec how he can mate himself any more notorious than he is at present. : o "Ukcomatabus," had better try again. His awful tale commences, continues and ends in lies. He even puts Old Satan, the father of lies, to the blush. If he ever gets into the Kingdom his master will have to chain him pretty securely or he will bo in danger of having his authority usurped. giTThe editor of the Democrat may call his nid and admit all his party scribblers the county, to join in a crusade against merican interests, and he will End at the end of tho battle after the 6moke hns clear- d away that he has been engaged in a carfare against thoso whom he thought were his friends.

A few day s before the New Hampshire election the Catholic priest of Concord received six thousand 5ve hundred dollars to be used in electioneering purposes, to induce his church members to vote the Slavery Extension ticket. Communications. g The article given below comes to us from a man who now doet, and alwoyt hat stood high in the estimation, of; the Demo cratic leaders nnd their whole party in this county. We had, on first reading, "some hesitation about giving it an. insertion, but upon a personal consultation with him, have felt that it was our duty to let him express his sentiments; Rnd we are firmly convinc ed that no party drill which the Sag Nichts in this county can institute will ever, have the effect to change Lis mind from the views he has expressed to us. : r Ia his conversation with us lie said, "These many years Lave I labored fir the Democratic party and the ascendency of their ' principles; labored night and day, with my bands, my speech, my pen and my money and that too, when ihe present leaders of the party in this county were feediug ou milk, and they are not yet strong enough to eat meat, mere babes. -: I have lived to see the power and influence of for eigners increase by twelve times its strength -whilo the American vote Las only about trippled and if it continues to increase at this fearful rate, the generation to come will be overwhelmed and submerged by Jesuitical Catholocism. . It seems to me that the American people are blinded to their beet and dearest rights and interests, or they would rise in their might and hurl them from powei in every instance, and never suffer a foreign-born man to exercise the elective franch'ue. Neither their chil dren unless born on American soil. But the day has come, and I bless God thatl am permitted to see it, when Americanism is being discussed, and that freely." In reference to the course of the Demo crat, he said, "I am glad to see it breath ing out thrcatnings and slaughter against the Know Nothings, it is doing first rate American work, and I hope nnd pray that Flauoheh will be as bitter as he knows how, and call to Lis aid all such men as Ballville.. It is this course, which 'more than anything else, that bas led me to avow myself a native American in sentiment as well as birth, and I shall very much regret it when he stops his abuse of the Know Nothings. Ten columns a week is not enough, Le should leave out his advertise meats and devote it entirely to the great subject." Much else this old Democrat said to us, which we have not space to note down. It is our opinion that he knows something about the Know Nothings, but on this point we could learn nothing from him. If a so ciety should be started here we are induced to think there would be some to enter its doors, the anathemas of the Democrat to the contrary notwithstanding. Read what he says: For the Journal. The Pope and the Sag Nichts. Foreigners Organizing—Dangers of our Country—Sixteen Thousand Agents of the General Government in the Field— The Editor of the Democrat, his Abuse of Good Citizens. Mr. Editor: Has it not long been ap parent to the thinking, that the Pope and his cmi-saries, were busily at work to sub ject our country to the control of the priest hood and the Jesuits, and to subvert our republican institutions to the tyrannical and iron rule of Rome ? For this purpose the Pope has been sending in Lis tools by the thousands, who are laboring incessantly, day and night, to overcome our native born citizens at the polls, and oppose by all the means in their power, our laws and our in s itutions. They are organized in every State in the Union, into secret societies. They receive their instructions from the Bishops, and they directly from their head the Pope. They are bitterly opposed to our institutions and laws, and are makin" a war upon them for the purpose of sub verting the government Look at our com mon schools! To destroy these is one of their prime objects, and they are waging a relertlt-ss war upon them. They de mand, as a matter of right, that a portion of the taxes levied for educational purposes shall be paid over to them, fur the purpose of educating their children in the Jiomixh faith; and as this has not yet been granted they are denouncing us with all the appro brious epithets to be found in their vocabu Inry. What American citizen will not ar ray himself against this impudent claim of the foreigners? At the polls these emissaries appear by the hundreds,' and the lives of our native born citizens are jeopardized if they at tempt to exercise the privileges of Amrri can citiz-ns. If they dare vote, it is at the isk of their lives, for these foreign Catho lics, block the windows, armed and equip ped, to knock down those who will not stoop to the Pope. Hundreds of murders have been committed by these vassals of his holiness, upon innocent citizens, because they dared to vote. How long, oh ! Low long, citizens of Sandusky county, will it be until you see the dangers to which you are exposed ? These men are in your midst, they visit your dwellings, they watch your every movement, and report to their Pas tor. Some of them Lave r'Ceut'y said, that they hoped "the day was not lar dis tant when they could wade in Protestant Hood to their knees!" Such is the spirit of tho men who are denouncing us as Know Nothings. Citizens of Sandusky county, the trial must come, and is even now at the door. They demand that toe Bible, the open Protestant Bible, shall be taken out of our children's Lands, and ex eluded from the common schools. The Book of Books shall be closed, and we shall be governed by the behests of the Pope of: Rome. Shall if be done? AVilPwesub mit to the demands of Rome, or will we join the noble band of Americans, whose principles are American, and whose object and aim is to save our country from their foreign domineering demands? Of what soever political party we may be, when for eigners band together, to subject us to the despotic will of Rome, it is our duty, as Americans, to join societies organized to save us from so deplorable a catastrophe. All political feelings should be thrown aside, by all men, and unions formed to save us and our children from these foreign ene mies, and their. American allies, f ' Mitchell, one of the Pope's agents, and a favorito of the Sandusky County Demo crat, Las advised the foreigners to organise and arm themselves, and be ready torarter- minuie the native born citizens; and Roedel of New York City, another of the Pope'a agents, in a recent speech, in that city, told his countrymen that tbe foreigners had two hundred thousand stand of arms in llteir possession, ready to be used to shoot down the native citizens, whenever they refused to submit to their demands These, fellow citizens, are the kind of men that the editor of the Democrat is continually giving aid and counsel to, through his paper; while all Americans, indiscriminately, young and old, who have joined the Know Nothings to save their country from the ruthless hands of this foreign enemy, are denounced as traitors to their country and their God as Anti-Republicans, scoundrels and vag abonds, deserving the execration of man kind. No matter what their services in their country's cause may have been, this friend and apologist of foreigners and Cath olics, abuses them with all tbe dirty filth and slime he can command, either by him self, or with the aid of his venal crew ol correspondents, some of whom would not be admitted on the premises of a man who had any regard for the welfare or purity of bis family. To enable the Pope and Lis foreign al lies to better carry out Lis plans of destroy ing our Republican institutions, be has, through his emissaries, established secret societies called Sag Nichts, the members of which are bound together by the most unholy oaths, to yield the most implicit obe dience to the orders and behests of the head of this company, and never vote for any man unless he belongs to and is a mem ber of the order I And to this Anti-American conspiracy, I believe the editor of Uie Democrat belongs, and Las sworn to obey its commands! For this reason every pa per he prints is filled with abuse of the best citizens of Sandusky county. His influence is with the enemies of our country, and bis paper is devoted to building up foreigners. Should we of the Democratic party who do not choose to join foreigners, support a man who is weekly fulminating his abuse against us" In this crusade of foreigners and the Pope against our country, the sixteen thous and Postmasters of the United States have" been enlisted. Tbe Postmaster General, ho appoints them, is a Catholic and a Jes uit, and belongs to these secret socieliesf and his subordinate Postmasters in every town, village and hamlet, are busy organ izing these societies arid swearing in mem bers. In tliis town, a large majority of the members are foreigners a few office-seekers, demagogues and slavery extentionisls having joined them, expecting thereby to be elevated to office and power. These Postmasters are but doing the dirty work of tbeir Catholic superior; and with such inQuenci s as this array of office-holders ean use, it is the duty of all native born citizens to join a society that will crush oul this pojsjerful array of office-holders and catho lics, who have combined to destroy our con slituiion and Government. Give them the power, and the Inquisition will be instituted, and citizens will be brought to the stake and burned, as were Latimer, Rogers and others. The Bible will be destroyed, and men, women and children will be put to prison, in chains, irons and dungeons, for reading it, just as they now are in Tuscany and other Catholic countries. Fellow citizens of Candusky county ! The Know Nothings have organized to save our country from this powerful array. They make no distinction as to parties, but all that have the requisite qual ficattons can be admitted. In al! elections, no candidate is csked to what party he belonged, so that ho is a fit man. A Freesoiler, Democrat or Whig, no matter, all are welcome, and all eligible to office. Are you in favor of "Americans ruling America," is the chief plank in their platform, and to this all can subscribe. Why should foreigners be our office-holders? Why should they make our laws and control our institutions? Let the citizens of Sandusky county think over these matters and decide whether tbey will be ruled by our own citizens, or by AN AMERICAN. For the Journal. Friend Keelkr: I have no doubt that you, with many friends of the Tempersnce cause will be glad to learn, that the old and arch enemy, "Alcohol" with all its concom itant evils, is slowly but surely, retreating before the steady, determined zeal of the temperance part of community. The "Allied Army" of Temperance men and women, "Truth," "Love," and "Fideli ty," must eventually carry by storm their last strong hold the citadel of Rumdom. Almost every day witnesses the defeat of some of their out-posts some of their weaker points of defence are carried with out either lo6s of life or limb, although, ma ny demonstrations have bocn made to tbe contrarySuch for InstanceTs keeping tFeir guns loaded for self defence and in defiance of laW abd order, -i . r i i - ' I A small gsrritcn, situated near the cen tre ef York Township, was successfully car ried, after a siege of about ten days, and its gallant commander, Captain Gross, was forced to yield to thesupcrioi force of num bers and the majesty of the "Law." - It must be borne in mind that the Cspt. is an Old Hero, and did not strike Lis colors until severely wounded doing himself and tho legion to which he belongs much honor and credit. After the affray was over, the ammuni tion secured, and all of the guns of that no bio Fort were securely spiked, we -made our way for the wounded Hero.

Yours, world without end. AQUEOUS. For the Journal. Lock your Hen Roosts! Ma. In the last 'Democrat," the editor bas permitted a correspondent signing himself " Uncomatibus," to make sundry charges against me, to which I plead not guilty, and demand the proof. I am charged with having made "two or three speeches" in a Know Nothing lodge, and also, with being the " " correspondent of the Journal All these charges, I pro nounce premeditated, wilful, and malicious falsehoods, made by a thing, who lives on the carrion, that other men in Lis business reject, as too offensive for any. man pretend ing to any decency, to have anything to do with. I would advise all citizens to keep their Hen Roosts locked, as long as we have such graceless scamps in community, who seem to live by slandering their neighbors. The soul of this correspondent might be put into a mustard pot, and have as much room to circulate therein as a herring in Lako Erie. 1 think Mr. Flaugher lias not treated me fairly by permitting his correspondent to assail me, inasmuch as I am a private citi JOHN SHRENK.

A joint reso- luiioo has lately passed Congress, which is very gratifying to every person acquainted with the circumstances of tbe case. I refer to the resolution for the relief of Mrs. Re becca Hinton, of Delaware, Ohio, wife of Otho ll nton, late mail contractor. This ac tion of Congress will restore to this much . afflicted but most excellent family the small private properly of Mrs. Hinton, and she will be able to avoid years of poverty and toil Without disparagement to otber Ohio members, it is but right to say that Major Sapp, of Ml. Vernon, in the House, and Judge Wade, of the Senate, were instru mental in securing tbe passage of thw reso lution. They both have great influence in their respective Councils, and are valuable and profitable Representatives of and for Ohio. Wash. Correspondent. Erie aud North-East Railroad. The Pennsylvania House, on the 10th, passed through, in Committee of the Whole, the repeal of the Charter of tbe Erie and North Last Railroad, nnd it was made tbe special order for Wednesday afternoon. The bill will probably piss the Legislature. This annulling of tho Charter is said to be in consequence of the non-performance of cer tain conditions connected with that Charter, by which it was obliged to contribute to the prosperity of Erie, indirectly and di rectly. Tbe Legislature seems determined that the company shall do so, or stop. Cleveland Herald.
