The Pom i.rrat of Rieh'nnd township nro
rpqupstrd to meet at the Court Home on
Saturday evenine, March 17,
I8o3, for iho purpose of nominating ticket
lor the Spring Election.
All who ore opposed to the socrct-niidnicht-proscriptive
orgnnixation. known by the nnme
ol 'Know Nothing,' are respectfully invited
to attend, and parlicipn'o in the selection of
inpu lo be supported by the freemen ol Rich

The above U a lileral copy of a call pub
lished in last week's twjtitt: f Cilittn ta
f yle and all, Now the Me7' might be tukun a.i
in emblem ol 'he K. N'. for if we recollect
I'ighl lh rc were 'JOIO eagles put into the
ballot box last fall in this county. No mat
ter for that, however, the broud wings ol the
American eagle cover many ditTereiit kinds
of people. They flap alike over the just and
the iinjmt over K. N't and S'ty IV'ithts
over Mlantt and Snw!iuc'-$ over Jblack and
whito.borul and free. It is rather vtrangn
that ui? were riot furnished with a copy of the
call in tilna for last week' pupei, but it is
'better late than rcver."
Now the concluding sentence of the call
smella of "Tut ion." Really our dpmocratic
Iriends are stealing our thunder, and almost
our very ideas too. Murk thr aimilarity.
Welike that for ilia a virtual recognition
of OttT Vusion priucipl". They thought of
tho gjorioua triumph oi Futlon lust fall, tud
resolved, like them lu lose.
Ah, .in on a closer examination, the elo
von foot is Visible, yea, "horn,hoo'a and all.'
Why not leave off ihe first part of the call,
and have a pure Pillion, o to speak! Il is
a Uoraucratic meeting, but all opposed to the
li- N's are rupeclfully invited to become
Democrats for '.llo hence, and uttend. Ii

Mow what most supremely ridiculou plea
thhl is! How lung, we ask, will it take a
Democrat to find out that be has been gull
ed! To ot r certain knowledge iho Untitle
commenced on the Know Nothing some
mouth before the lait election, and gave
what he said were true expositions of the
order. Notwilhatanding these expoeitioiis
the order grew and waxed txceedingly pow
erful in a very ahort time, la It poesible
that these Democrat who have been fooled
will believe an "old Whig leader" oener
than (he edi(orof a Democratic paper. Bu
.ii. ppnsp, fur llio sake of lha argument, thut
they were deceived in joining the Order,how
long won Id it take them to find it out! Not
more than one or two meetings, we should
iHildh) yet last fall they hung on resolutely
u Mil n'ti r the election. How they stand
now for numbers we are notable to say, ami
presume we will never know except as (heir
in; n. in i.l force is revealed at the ballot box
on ome future election day. Of one thing,
however, we are certain, that if we wore
; member of the order we would not thank the
j editor of the Oatflte, or any one clae for
saying that it took u two, three, or ix
month, n th esse might be to find out the
! principles and designs of the order.

From the O. S. Journal.
Popular Sovereignty.
The Fourth of M,ircb has passed: The
long to bo remembered Congres of compact
breakers and constituent betrsyers had dis
persed ; "pnpulur sovereignly" has worked ve
ry differently in the case of most of ita mem-be-s,
from their own fond anticipations, and
"the places that have once known them will
know thc-n no more forever.". When the
late Congress assembled, it found the coun
try in peace snd quietness; the murmur uf
sectiunal discoisii wero hushed. Before it
cIubpiI its first session, by the repeal of the
Missouri Compromise, and the throwing open
to Slavery all the territories of the Union,
it had destroyed all luture confidence between
tho Free and the Slave States, and stirred
up, through the mosses ol the people of tho
Free Slates, a deep seated and burnine sense
of the wrobo done them, which, in the late
elections, lound some venl on the heads ol
the traitor representatives of the Norlh.
This feeling will continue to agitate the
Unicn until the territory he reitored to free
do r, which, by an infamous fri ud, bus been
exposed to the chui ces of Slavery.
The insulting taunts o.' the minion of
Douglas and the Administration to go and
fight the ' black plague," now trying to
spread ilsell over the fair territory of Kan
zas, alter they themselves have invited it to
walk in on equal terms with freedom, w ill not
be forgotten. Their sincerity will now be
soon ttstrd, by ascertaining If they are wil
ling to support any measure for the protec
tion of their own bunding, " popular sover
eignty," and the prevention of citizens of
Missouri pouring Illegal voters in'o the Ter
ritory, for the purpose of controlling and
overawing the bona tide squatters. The
frauds committed in the election uf General
Whitfield, the late Delegate, are notorious
und also the preparations now making by the
Atchison faction of pipe-layers in Missouri,
lo import enough votes Id control the charac
ter ol the Legislature (o be elected on the
13th of March, notwithstanding the efforts of
Gov. Reedcr to protect the polls. Vet not a
whisper is raised against the outrage hy Ihe
Douglas "populur sovereignly" organs in the
Free Stales.
Congress adjourned without looking into
the matter; and while perhaps it was too
much to expect from a set of Representatives
so universally condemned, that they would
retrace their steps, and, in obedience to the
clearly exprpssed popular will, nr.SToiiE the
Slavery prohibition thut hud been repci led,
honesty at least required that they should
puss some law that would give "popular
sovereignty" fair play in Kanzus, und punish
the residents of Missouri who, by illegal vo
ting, were interfering with the rights uf Iho
bona lido squatter. Neither the President
nor S. Arnold Douglas have shuwn any dispo
sition to move iu the matter; on the contrary
it is well known that Gov. Reedcr is daily
denounced in Missouri by tha Atchiaon pa
pers us an Abolitionist, because he protests
u u i list such interference; und efforts are ma
king to have him removed, simply because,
like muny an Ohio Nebruskujtte, he wus greon
enough to believe Douglus meant what he
said, when he talked ubout "popular sover
eignty." The plan of Ibe pro-slavery party is, evi
dently, by Iraiul, to geiconlrol of the first Lo
gislaiure of Kanzas legalize Slavery, and
then raise the cry , with their doughface allies
in the free Slates, lhat ice wins acuui'escs!
Former citizens, of Ohio now iu Kanzas
write, that ai the lato election for Delegate,
Missourians in somo instances votedsu times
at the . .in., pull; and with arms in their
hand surrounded the polls, requiring voters
to show their tickets, and threatening every
one auspected of boing unfavorable to the
pro-slavery candidate. Kunzus cuat near
3000 votes, while Nebraska polled but 1000
another proof of the large importation of Mis
s xirian.
Now it is certain that a large majority gf
the Congressmen just elected by the people,
will nut be disposed lo tolerate such a course
of proceedings; and thuugh ihe hold- ivcr Sen
ators, in defiance of ihe expressed will ut
their curilituenls, may relusc to o'tey insti uc
tions, iik1? Cass, and restore the slavery pro
hibition of the Missouri compromise, yet ihey
will hardly dare to vote aguiust a bill to pro
tect "popular aovereignly" which the next
lower House .should forthwith pass, punishing
wilh severe Penitentiary penalties, similar!
to our Ohio election law, the illegal voter:
from Missouri, who (hall again attempt to In-1
terfere with the Kansae elections. If the'
President, under the behests of the slave
power, should veto such measure, demanded, j
as it will he by the emi-nesl men of (II parties
in the country, it will be easy to insert in the
general appropriation bill, and stick by it.
tch a law would tend, in sumo degree, to
restrain tho aggression of the slave power,
by preventing Missonri from governing Kan
sas, until at the next Presidential election,
the prep! gt fair sweep at tba po-vers that
be; -and then the lull sway of Ireeaoes will
ba re-eatabKshed by lha 'popular sovereignty" I

Delegate from Belmont.
BARNESVILLE, March 10th, 1855.
Mr. Editor: I noticed in your last paper t
an article, which I suppose to be fiom your
pen, where io you touch up tha Delegate i
from Belmont in no alow manner, and re- i
quest him 'o give hi reasons for his appa-i
rently unwarrantable speech in th Conven-j
tion at Columbus. ' i
Believing you to be a sincere friend to th i
Temperance cause, and that your remark I
were the result of kind intentions I beg loave 1 1
to present you seriatim, my reasons for the
aforcaaid speech.
But before I commence allow me to state i
that the gratuitous assumptions, lhat I am an i
ullraist and that my cirele is narrow and con- I
traded, have an air about them, that does i
not very well suit the conductor of so rspec-
table and worthy a paper, as I have always ' ,
understood the Chronicle lo be, j
But the reasons. First the n before the 1 1
present law was passed, we had in this place ,
a borough law which prevented the sale of i
spirituous or malt liquors, in any quantity
other than for Medical purposes and under
the operation of that law we were better off j
than we ure now for by it the sale of intoxi I
eating or mall liquors was entirely prohibi
ted while under the present law, sle beer and
wine are sold to any and everybody.
std. Before the passage of thi law on di-
vision (I am a son of I empernce, one of the
first thai joined in this place.) our division, I h
suy numbered about 250 memb 'rg, at the i
present time we number 55.
3d. The opening cf be !r and wineshops,
has been the cause of this in a great meas
ure, and a number of our formar sonj of tem
perance are or havo been engaged in selling j
beer and wine, not to speak of those who
have been patronizing them, (but you call
that back sliding.)
4th. Before I wa elected, we teok' the '
sense of the division upon the practical ef
facta of the present law, and my remarks iu '
the Convention were based upon (hat acUon
ol'the Division.
6th. The difficulty of prosecuting this luw.
We have now two lh jail in your town from
tbia Tp. and one 'was (as I have been in-!
formed) prosecuted by a man to whom he
Would not sell, and the other by the wife of j
the Unfortunate inebriate who wrs maddened :
by the injurious effects of ardent spirits upon
her husband
6th. The law allows any one to sell to
"temperate men, which is worse than the '
old license systum (or it is snly temperate
men who can become drunkards.
7th. You confess your self that manv n di
vision has been broken up and charters re
lumed, Is nol this backsliding!
I have a good many more reason but for '
fear nf trespassing too much on your time
and columns, I here close and shall try to j
give you a revv moro in u short (imn.
Yours truly,
March 3rd, 1855.
You are perhaps nwaie, that there is, neur
Burnesville, an anti-tobacco Society, which
is composed chiefly of reformed tobacco chew-1
ers und smokeis. Tho aOciety met lor the
first timo about a year ago, and through ill
has been bitterly oppi sed by those who are
steeped iu the poison of the evil though time
sanctioned custom ; yet ;t is slowly progress-!
ing. Labor, in a good cause is always re -1
wurded either directly or indirectly. Expo-1
rience has shown to us the benefit of shun- j
ning the ioathome weet , unJ wu feel bound
to make use of all moral means to induce oth
ers to forsake the worse thun useless practice
of using tobacco as a loxu.y. Viewing the
matter in ibis light the Society has instructed
Rsj to forward to you a copy of the most im
portant parts of our Constitution and by laws;
which, though imperfect, we hope you will !
give them room in your columns, believing as
we do that your love for the promotion of
needful reform will induce you to publish
than for the benefit of thosa w ho read your
paper, we humbly avail ourselves uf the op
portunity to have them inserted in your col
umns. Yours truly.

Editor of the Chronicle, Esteemed Friend:
Wishing to know the tinieol the meeting
f the board of School Examiners, and not
jeing able to find the time published as it
jsed to be in (he County papers, I have con
tiudad to write a few lines to theo (o euc ju
roge the board to continue (he notice ol (heir
And while I am writing there is another
subject on which I will say a few Words.
Isce ia last week's Ohronkie an extract
from the "Buffalo Democracy" headed "prop
er rendering of Scripture," which is taken
without comment, and 1 suppose meets the
appnval of the editor of ihe Chronicle,
which I am sorry to think. The extract
consists ol u commendation of part uf a let
ter of Kossuth's to the society of friends,
wherein he makes a lame and very illogical
attempt to prove that wur is in accordance
with Christianity us set forth in the scripture,
and quoting us happy and pertinont a doubt
ful rendering of the following:
"Glory to God in the highest, on earth
peace, ood will toward men." Luke, 11, 14.
Koesuth preferring the following version:
G iory to God in the highest, and peace on
earth lo good willing nien." N ow udinitting
Ihe lutter version (o be correct,! ee nothing
in it to support the curnul warlure which.
Kossuth wishes to uphold, us the anijels wero
evidently proclaiming the nature of Christ's
Mission en Eirth, which aria in leed peace lo
all good willing men-but ever ha been and.
ever will be on Ii vil Willing or Evil

with "("onlused noise and garments rolled in
blood" bu( n silent s a ching war. carried oil 1
in (he hearts of Men and w ith a spirit sharper
than a Iwo-edged S.vord iSic.
Kossuth has bec.i quite as unbippy iu
ihe conclusions lip has seen lit to draw from
some other passages. He oppears to have
taken liicrully the following from Christ's
sermon on the mount "I come not to send
peace hut a sword," Sic; which if bo con
strued must render the appellation of the
Prince of Peace as applied to Him strangely
inappropriate. Yt his whole course on
earth and nil the teachings ol his precepts
are strictly in accordance with "With peace
an earth, and good will to men," whether
friends or foes.
Kuasuth has made a bold attempt to nn
chris'.ianize the society of Friend. Yet
were his doctrines carried out, half the na
tions of Christendom must form companies of
Knights-Errunts lo redress the wrongs of
jibe re.
I wus sorry to see any thing like commen
ting an attempt to discourage peace princi
ples, at a time especially when the wur spir

I do that tbatspirit of ambition which is in
flamed and fostered by war: is one which will
endanger the permanency of this government

of New York made a descent upon an estab
lishment in thet city known as Dashall Si

frable nuisance as "Gift Elite rpries," "Gift

nany repeated exposures by the press, we
