be a Know -Nothing because we at one time

Hero is a full admission that he pub
lished a Know Nothing paper, and the
very issue before is the one in which he
so emphatically denied it I .
The editor proceeds to say : .
"But that all the old abuse of foreigners
charging the matt the italics are our own with
being ignorant, many of them with being pan-
pera and criminals, was paraded in his columns,'
is as false ns the nether pit, and when the eui-
tor penned these words, he knew that he was
wilfully ana deliberately falsifying, as nothing I
whu-h ho seen in the paper to which he refers

.We made the statement about his abuse
of foreigners from what we saw in the
file of his paper which we examined; we
say that it is true, and the people will
place no more reliance in his denial of this
statement than in his denial of the fact
at all.. We have not that file in our dos-
session and of course cannot give all the
evidence upon which we founded the
ftharire. bht - we hava a connla of Ktrav

paper, and will givo a few extracts from
their editorials : " ,
"Herein lies the germ of that national feel-

" We asked the Journal a scries of
questions a short lime since, all of which
were couched in gentlemanly and respect

of these, aud that, was the one iu which
he denied editing a Know Nothing paper

recognises the right of ono editor to make
such inquiries of another, by answering
ours, and ccasc3 to put his questions in

will answer him.
BUCHANAN CLUES.
We desire to call the attention of our
democratic friends in the County to the
propriety of organizing clubs similar to
those which have been formed in Center
and Ohio Townships, the proceedings of
which were published in our last issue.
If we desire at the next election to roll
up a good, eld fashioned democratic ma
jority, we must work, and organization is
necessary to successful labor "The
batile is not to ths strong alone, it is to
vigilant, the active and brave.
. These organizations are necessary, that
the. members may compare notes, talk with
and confer with each other on the means
necessary for disseminating the true issues
which arc before the. people in this cam
paign, and sec that every man who is a vo-
ler has an opportunity of examining for
liimself the results which may reasonably
be expected from the election of the dis
union candidate for the Presidency.
A little attention paid to these matters
now by meeting together occasionally, and
taking the proper measures to furnish the
voters in the several Townships with doc
uments containing the democratic princi
ples, will insure a majority of 1500 for
Buchanan, the Uuion and Democracy,
Aflairs in California Law
Order overrtiletl.
and
For somo weeks past there has ; been
acts transpiring in California calculated
to fill the breast of every lover of his
country with sorrow and alarm. The ex
edition of the laws in San Francisco
county has been wrested from . the officers
and usurped by a mob calling themselves
a Vigilance Committee. -
It appears that many . of the officers
there were not legally ', elected--that false
bottoms were, fixed in ballot boxes by
which hundreds of tickets : were inserted
unlawfully, and in some instance's the bal
lot boxes and tally sheets were taken by
ruffians, and the offices boldly offered a
the door to the highest bidder. The offi
ccrs were charged with complicity in these
outrages, and in some instances, " it ap
pears, not unjustly ; These," and other
gross outrages had worked the people np
to a high state of excitement when the
murder of King, an editor of San Fran
cisco, aroused open rebellion. The Vigi
ancc Committee assumed the administra
tion of the laws, and a number of men
among them the murderer of King, were
tung from the windows of . the committee1
rooms. In vain did the omcers collect
armed forces; the forces of the Committee
outnumbered them and ruled the county.
The Government is now powerless, and
the Committee meets no resistance. What
ever may have been ; the cause of such a
state of affairs its-, existence is to be de
plored. ..There appears to be a division
of sentiment as to whether tbe Committee
was justifiable In wresting the Government
from the hands of the officers or not . , In
our opinion there is no justification unless
it waso save themselves from ruin. iWe
are compelled to omit particulars for want
of room. : 1 '' " ;' ;

Tne Etlltwr or the Journal and
the Fillmore Club.
Mr. Editor: I am not in the habit
of writing for the Press, but after read
ing the "Rules and Regulations of the
Fillmore Club of Monroe County," and
the preface thereto, as published in the
Journal of last week, I think some reply
is demanded on the part of the members
of the Club. -
Before inserting the Resolutions, the ed
itor labors to convince his readers that
"Mr. Fillmore we regard as no true expo
nent of the principles of Americanism.
He has so far refused to endorse the doc
trines for which the Amcricau party has
been contending. He has never even ex
pressed a sympathy for the great Aracri
can movement. He has never publicly
committed himself to American princi
ples." In making these charges he ne
glects or wilfully omits to inform his read
ers that Fillmore, in his letter of accep
tance of the nomination by the American
Party, says: " - ' ; .
"As the proceedings of the Convention have
marked a new era in .the history of the coun
try, by bringing a new political organization
into the approaching Presidential canvass, 1
take the occasion to re-affirm my confidence in
the patriotic purposes of that organization,
which I regard as epringing: out of a public
necessity, forced upon the country to a large
extent by unfortunate sectional divisions and
the dangerous tendency of those divisions to-
wards disunion. - It alone, in my opinion, of all
the political agencies now existing, is possessed
of the power to silence this violent and disas
trous agitation, and restore harmony by its
own example of moderation and forbearance.
It has a claim, therefore, in my judgment, upon
every earnest friend of the integrity of the
Union. So estimating this party, both jn its
present position and future destiny, I freely
ADOPT ITS GREAT LEADING PRISCIPLK3, as an.
nouueed in the 'recent declaration of the Na
tional Council in Philadelphia, a copy ef which
you was so kind as to enclose me, hold
ing them to.be just and . liberal to every
true interest of the country, and wisely adap
ted to the establishment and ' support of an
enlightened, safe, and effective American policy,
in full accord with the ideas and the hopes of
the Fathers of the Republic;"
When and where has John C. Fremont
ever said as much to commit himself to'
the principles of the American party?
John C. Fremont, the candidate which
the "German" editor of the Journal is en
deavoring to convince the American partj
of Monroe they should . support, as . the
true exponent of their principles.
As the editor of the Journal in hislast
issne, is convinced that . he . has been
"barking up the wrong tree," and,: conse
quently, become suddenly re-converted to
Americanism, I ask him to publish, side-
by-side, both . Fillmore and .. Fremont's
letters of acceptance, as candidates for the
Presidency, and let his readers see which
is the "true exponent of. the principles of
Americanism." , ';.. v '. -h
The editor, speaking -in reference to
communications from : members ; of t the
American party, claims that he has never
refused "publishing commuuications from
any of that party.'.' .' In answer to this, I
refer the reader to the following para
graph: - ,;: : . .. .
"We are a German ourself and have nothing
to do with Know NothinRism'-wour., 7uwll
I can inform the editor of the Journal,
that if the communications from the mem
bers of the American party are to be pub-
ished in the same bungling and tweorreef
manner as the "Rules : and Regulations
of the Fillmore Club of Monroe County
were ' published, he need have no fears'
of receiving communications from -that
quarter. -: ' ! :

Mr. Editor: Through your columns
I wish to set the American party right in

C' Fremont is. the American candidate
It is with regret that ; I say it, but it is
none the less true, that any one who rep
resents Fremont as the candidate of the
American party is guilty of wilful and de
liberate misrepresentation; , aud should be
regarded with suspicion and contempt by
every true American. I am aware that
there has been a strong effort on the part
of some deserters, to sell out the Anieri
can party in this . county and district io
the Abolitionists, but it is no go.:
In the American Convention, which
met at Barnesville on the 31st ult., these
men received a" severe but just rebuke
Theywere told in., the - plainest - possible
terms, that they "were deserters fromr and
traitors to the-American cause, and had
nb right to a seat iu that Convention
They came up there pretending to repre
sent the American partyof Monroe coun
ty, and, if they had been permitted, would
have cast the vote of that party in that
Convention for anti-Fillmore.hien." - Now,
I appeal to .the American . party of this
coonty, " they ever authorized those men
to represent, them in that Contention?
Can you trust men, who, having deserted
your party, thus turn round and deliber
ately attempt to sell you out, without yonr
knowledge or consent? v
The American party in this county, and
all over the district, is well satisfied with
the nominations made at that Convention.
Jno. M. Bushfield is, 'to some' extent,
a stranger amongst jBS,:but he was-nominated
by acclamation, ... -
C. C. Carrol, who received the nomi
nation for Judge of. the. Court of - Com
mon Pleas in this District, is well known;
and will receive the support of every real
American in the District. There is no
doubt 'about the -matter, -we can;- and r we
will, elect onr, whole ticket, u- f.
. On next Friday, August 8th, in the af
ternoon, the Hon.. John Davenport, of
Barnesville, who has - been r stumping the
btate for Fillmore, will address the citi
zens of. this county at Woodsfield. -to ;
On the day following, Saturday Ang-
gust 9th, he will speak in Clarington, at 1
o'clock, P. M., and at Jamestown, at 6
o'clock, P. M., of the same day.
1 ellow-citizens, come out . and attend
the above meetings, and let the Buchanan
and Fremont men see whether Fillmore is
in the fight or not. ' " AMERICAN.

POUTICS , A'D Til E PULPIT
-Mr. Editor The. campaign for Presi
dent has opened in earnest, aud is accom
panied with some manifestations that are
calculated to awaken serious alarms It
appears that a portion of the Methodist
Episcopal Church have joined with the
Wesleyaus iu adulterating the pure fount
of Religion with the turbid stream of Pol
itios. The election of John C.Fremont
to the Presidency seems to be aspiring
with some success to rivalry with the cause
of Religion, even on the Sabbath day and
in the Pulpit , :
When Ministers of the Gospel, on the
Holy Sabbath, from the sacred desk, in
stead wf exhorting their ."dyiug congre
gations" to "love God and keep his com
mandments," are engaged in exhorting
them to be on hands at an Abolition
meeting, to be held, perhaps, in the same
church, I ask if a man may not well en
tertain serious apprehensions, not for his
country alone, but for the cause 'of Reli
gion itself? which, although not a pro
fessor, be may reverence and respect.;
But, let me ask, how long will it be either
reverenced or respected if it is used as a
mere instrument to subserve the-interests
oi some political faction or aspirant to
office? . If Ministers are -called by the
Almighty "to point sinners to the Lamb
of God," and to save souls, are they com
plying with that call in pointing out the
road to some Abolition meeting, and sav
ing the election of some favorite to office?
The present is the first time any such
manifestations have appeared in this part
of the county.' Other campaigns have
been conducted here, when party feeling
ran higher than now other parties have
been compelled to adopt desperate means
to save them from defeat, but this is the
first time that a party has laid hold of the
Church to keep from sinking, and unless
the Church shakes it off both will go down
together. : . i OBSERVER.

At our mast-head to-day, says the Zancs-

Judge of the Supreme Conrt of Ohio, to
fill the vacancy caused by the resignation
of Judge Converse. : r - : V
It is little less than presnmtion for as to
say anything in recommendatfon of Judge-
Searle, a man who has made hi3 worthy

pleasure in adding our, mark of respect to
the 'old score,' which contains .the mark
of many a hand that has gone, with the
old men that used to be, down through the
unreturning days to that - great Court,
where Justice lays asjde the balance and

of the earth,, and bows, : in resignation, to
