' We see there is a conflict of opinion as to what Gcn.;. Pierce did say or do about the clause in the Constitution of his State, prohi biting Catholics from holding office, f It . will he recollected, that a year or two since, New Hampshire called a convention to frame a new. Constitution, but we believe that no part! of it was adopted by the people. - An attempt waa made at that time to do away with the odious feature of the old Constitution, which virtually disfranchised the Catholic population of that Statei By . the aid of tbe Whigs in tbe Convention a-clause to', that effect was engrafted into its provisions, but when sub mitted to the people it was lost by an over whelming vole. The vote stood 9,862 for the amendment, and 17,122 against it. The very day (in March, 1851) when the people of Newplampshire rejected the amend ment to their constitution which proposed to abolish the religious test, an election was held for Governor at which the -Whig candidate received only eighteen' thousand votes out of a poll of ffty-seven thousand or only a frac tion over ohe' third, the entire vote.

Echo answers, where ? . " 'n It is a poor compliment to the General's popularity and influence, for his friends to say that he labered to secure this reform, for if he did favor it, his party had little respect for his opinion, and much less for himself. s When fire votes against, to one for the amendment, in his own town, is the result, there can only be two horns to the dilemma: he is either a man of no influence in his own State, or else he opposed the right which the federal Con stitution has guarntied to every American citizen, whether native or adopted universal politicl egauality.'

"..Our mind was instinctively carried back to the scenes of '4t, eo enthusiastic and joyous were the as sembled crowd. Every heart beat with prift and many were the shouts that rent the air fur the old patriot who never lost a battle. : ' Gen. Pierce's first Battle.' Ges. Pierce .was appointed a brigadier general, by Mr. Polk, and joined Gen. Scott at Puebla. " The first battle in which ho. was engaged was at Contrefa&i 1 His connection with it is thus described : ' ' C "On the first ,day at Contreras, the . horse upon which Gen. Pierce was mounted .stum bled and fell among the rocks, throwing the General among them and injuring-him se verely. His brigade was then taken charge of by Col, Kausem. The . brtgade ot . uen. Pierce seized the radio of Padiern, .ahdswere in good position for the next day's work. Upon the following morning, while the" ac- actions at Churubusco, Contreras. Antonio and Tete du Point were in full contest, Shields and Pierce's brigades were subjected iu the held to a murderous fire from 7000 Mexican troops, under the command of. Santa Anna. Gen. Pairce was unable to be present, and the two brigades were commanded" by Gen. Sbeilda. .They finally put the troops enga ged against them to flight, making the fifth American victory acheived on that glorious day. - In the subsequent actions at Molino del Rey and -the Garita deBelsn, the brigade of Gen. Pierce took no . active part, ' except to cover the American forces which withdrew from Molino del Rey after that . hard-contested and fruitless victory.": - - v , . , The Fremont Freeman of last Saturday, complains that the mails from Sandusky are fort' eight hours in reaching that place, ow ing to a detention of twenty four hours . at Bellevue. We are happy to inform the Free man, and our subscribers jn Fremont, that the Postmaster of .this city has determined to make up a separate mail for that place.and that there will probably be no detention hereafter at Believue, as the mail bag will not be open ed at the latter place, and can be put on board the stage with the passenger, from. the cars, without the former necessity of changing the maiL '.'s" , Sand UBky Register. .

" Mr. S. triumphantly vindicated Gen. Scott from the foul aspersions of Mr. Bartlett that he was now in favor of a United States Bank, and opposed the naturalisation of our foreign fellow-citizens. He referred to a letter that he had that day read, written" by Gen. Scott, wherein the General explicitly states that he is opposed to any change 1a our naturalize tion laws, that will in anyway affect tlie rights of foreigners, lie also referred to whaf .Geni Scott, had written- to the Irish association at Baltimore, where the the old hero bears testi mony to the gallantry, heroism, and fidelity of fliat patriotic people; to the cause of their adopted country, saying that they "had fought side by side with him at the battles of Bridge water, Chippeway, Lundy'a Lane, and in the battles of Mexico, and that he bad never known a son. "of the Emerald Isle to turn his back upon a' foe or a friend. Thus this foul eharsre falls to the ground, and will Tetttrn to plague and confound the traddcers and. rilifi ers of the gallant old man who has rendered so much essential service to his country: Mf. S. touched on many other points, but we have not room to follow him through.
