That paper only said, what the True Whig i.selfhas t-ndoised, that a national party cannot incorporate into its creed .questions as to the abstract moral i'gbt or wrong of slavery. They can and ought to incorporate into their creed the doctrine of main taining the rights of all the people under the con stitution of the United States. The following paragraph from the Ameb ian Messenger, the organ of the American Tract Society, answers a whole world of the twattle of know-ncthing organs about the danger of the spread of the Catholic religion in the United States: Ekcocragikq The editor of "American Celt," being on a visit to Ireland, lately delivered a lecture J u Cork, on "Society in America," in which he ad vised his countrymen who could Hvs in Ireland to stay there, stating that in the United State?, the Konjish church "loses sixty percent, ofthe children cfRo -man-Catholic parents."

The Committee appointed to decide upon t design for the monument to be erected to the memory of Henry Clay at Lexington, Kentucky, bjive selected one by an architect of Cincinnati, Mr. J. Ti. Hamilton. There were over one hundred 'plans sent in for approval by architects and sculp ors ia every State in the Union. It is intended to be, and if the design solected be carried out will be by far, the finest thing of the kind in the coun try. Mr. Hamilton's design is a gothic temple of .ciroular form with thirteen sidep, intended to illus trate the thirteen original States of the Confedera cy. Tho statue, designed by Bellow, occupies the centre of the building much in the samo way as that of Sir .Walter Scott does in the Edinburg mon ument. The upper portion of the building is to be used C3 a record room to contain relics ofthe great statesman, an original and admirable idea.

By the kind ,i;m0ntnrv invitation ot the uemocratic Association," I appear before you this evening td nir.Mi. view?, for whatever they-are worth. in regard to some of those -questions, vhich seem, to me important, in our present political condition Our political condition strikes me as being at . . . . r.;i i? . .i . . i this lime mosi cnucai. xor, noiwiinstanamg ine systematic agitation ofthe question of slavery and tbe steady growth of the abolition parly in the free States, it never cculd have been said hereto- I fore that a m jority of the noDular branch of our ! National Legislature, were nrobablv in favor of abolishing slavery in the District of Columbia, of abolishing the slave trade between the States, of ii-pealiog the Fugitive Slave act, to say nothing of uie restoration ot the .Missouri (Jompromise re si riclion, which was so happily removed at the last; session ot uongress. In Masstchusetts, the Legislature, almost unani mously "know-nothintr." have passed abill nullify ing the Fugitive Slave act, arid, by a vote of near ly tiiree to one, lecommended tbe removal ot judge Loring from his office of Probate Judge, simply on the ground of the discharge of hi3 duties as United States Commission, under that act. That same les- islature lias degraded Massachusetts from the high position she once held, by placing in the seat of t cuaiei Limb uiu&i rauicui miu muauuai auuiiiiuuib Wilson, who shamelessly declares that it is lib purpose and tbo purpoje ol his party to carry through the most dangerous and revolutionary schemes of tie abolitionists. The know nothing party in New Hampshire have elected to the U. S. Spnato two abolitionists, Bell and John P. Hal&r In .New York they constituted an important ele ment in the re-ulection of the notorious Wm. H. Seward. In Iowa they defeated the re-election of Dodge, who had been so steadfast and true to tte Uonstitution and the rights of the tsouth, tnrougn all the Compromise troubles of 1S50. In Illinois they turned out Gen. Shields, who acted so gallant a part upon the battie-nelus or Mexico, and put Trumbull, a treesoiior, in nis place, in a wore, without, the enumeration of hundreds of other in-, stance?, they have not only proscribed every man who voted for the Nebraska bill, but they have nc i elected a single Union Whig or Union Democrat to the National Legislature. And in all the Slate, county and municipal elections, tbey have favored the election of men holding abolition sentiments, or they have been so indiuerent S3 not to have pre vented that result. It is utdeniable, therefore, that the success of know-nothingism has been the success of abolitionism in the free States. The influence of know-nothingism, which has been so potent in the elections of the North, is exerting itself here, and we are invited to sympa thize and fiffiliate with a party whose sudden and wonderful success at tho North is mainly due to the agitation of tbe slavery question in connection with the Kansas and Nebraska bill ought it not to fill U3 with apprehension and fear that the over tures of this Northern party have not been met, by all men at the South, with scorn and con tempt who would bavo believed, it it had been pre dicted two years ago, that a party could be organ- izsd in Tennessee, for political purposes, with se cret sign?, secret oaths, secret councils and tho parries of it3 members concealed? That a party could be organized, claiming to be strong enough to carry the State, and yet refusing to declare its opinions upon all or any of the leading questions, which have heretofore characterized our party di visions? In regard to the questions, which, as a political party, it ought to declare its opinions, it is silent, and some of the sentiments which it does utter, seem to me ought neither to be entertained or spoken. What is the propriety or necessity for a secret political organization in this country ! Under despotic governments, wo have heard of se cret political organizations, whose objects and the names of whose members were most carefully con cealed, for if made public, their designs would have been frustrated, and tho personal liberties of their members endngered. But here the people are the sovereigns and the public opinion prescribes the law, tbey can sseak out and publish their views ard purposes, and carry out their designs, if ap proved by the popular will, without fear or hin drance. Why hide themselves and their action from public supervision unless they are afraid of it? We do know that they withhold their sympathies from the people and strike at the legitimate in fluence? of the popular will by acting in secret and withdrawing themselves and their opinions from tbe popular jurisdiction. Now, gentlemen, is it not plain that the party which strikes at the due influence cf the public opinion and refuses to sub mil its political action to that jurisdiction, strikes at t he popular government iteelf, for it is only through the influence of the popular will that popular gov ernment becomes practicable or possible? Any ob stacle then to the due influence of the public opin ion or popular will, is an obstacle to popular gov ernment itself. Is it not obvious, therefore, that a party whose opinions are concealed, whose coun cils are closed from the publie eye, and whose pur poses are known to none but tbe oath-bound initi ated, must militate against and be inconsistent with popular government? Why i3 it said, that popular government would be an impossibility in most of the European States? Because there does not ex ist among their people a sufficiently free, enlighten ed and interested public opinion to give tors and direction to their public affairs. How is it that the Liberty, Equality, Fraternity, inaugurated with the French Republic of '48, have been swept away, and m France there is now no freedom of thought.or speech, and no freedom of the public press! It; is simply that the French people prefer order and quiet, even at the hands of the soldiery of the des potic Louis Napoleon, to theanarchy and confusion of a government, under the control of an indifferi ent and unenlightened public opinion. But how can the public opinion be enlightened or purified without tree thought, free speech, and a free press, and how can the people think, speak or publish freely, if the proper subjects are concealed from their view? To make a popular government pros perous, that government must be directed by pub l.o opinion intelligently formed upon the subjects of its action. Gentlemen, how can you build up the most intelligent public opinion unless you have the most open and free deliberation and discussion upon those subjects. So important was tho ideaof publicity considered, by the framers of our Federal and State constitu tions, that they made it obligatory on Congress and the Legislatures to publish a journal ol the pro ceedings, so that an enlightened constituency might have an eye upon the course of their repre sentative. With all the safeguards of publicity and responsibility we hear continually of Galphin ism, Gardinerisms and fraudulent and corrupt legislation. What would it be, if Congress sat in irresponsible and secret caucus? If you dread se ciesy in the representative, i3 it any the less fear ful when transferred to tbe constituency? Ia s cret legislation any more to be feared, than a secret element in the community, to prompt and direct that legislation? With a governor and legislature elected by Know-Nothings, what would the legis lation be, but the expression of the views of that crgan'zition, and would not legislation be practi cally transferred from the hills of Congress to the grand council chamber of the order? The first Jacobin club wai organized in Paris in 1789 under the nme of tbe "Friends of the Constitution." The incmoers of the French Assembly met as mcro machines to register the decisions of the clubs. Who has not read with horror, of the reign of ter ror and the streets running blood, the guillotine aEd the savage enormities of the French revolution, directed and impelled by secret political clubs? If the organization of Know-Nothings can control tbe vote of its members, it mo3t certainly can di rect tho legislation ofthe members also. The fun damental idea of our democratic, republican sys tem, is, that legislation shall reflect the will of the majority of the people, and it is the first duty of any and all parties to give tho freest scope to the expression and enforcement of that will. Will i not a party whose views and purposes are settled in counci's and conclaves, open only to the initiated, stand in the way of such a result? Take a vote ! in the order and a majority iuIcs, und then they go as one man, while the minority in the order and the outside vote might constitute a large majority j of tho whole community to say nothing of the j efficiency of such an organization in controlling- I elections. Another fundamental idea in our insti tutions, is, that each citizen shall have the utmost liberty to vote for what or whom he may think best but this organization determines for its mem bers for whom or for what they shall vote. ''Is he who vote?, as others direct, a freeman?" How hu miliating must be the feeling, that your vote is not your own, but belongs to your council. The lead ing idea of the vote by ballot is, that the citizen shall be free, even from the criticism or espionage; of his neighbors to''voirTor what, of whom ho- r!op) nn ins owb? muiviuuai conviction, now revolting is tho thqnghtjbf givihgTo others jliqT possibly, in opposition .to our iown convictions, But tbe dangers oPfsecret political organizatioi s, would not end here, Tonf this sueeeeJ, we will have .others jn relf defence, and then instead of open, fiee and manly discussion, face to face. be. fore the people, we wpuld, hare all the, intrigues 1 1 : t - f r . .' uuu uuiiuuuuiu 01 irie'pon-ioie cliques wnicn would devel&'pe,' as in"Slher "Stater, a set "of u'n principled pice hunters, poli.icians bv. profession, who are ready to advocate any opinion or serve any party, proviaea, mey are rewarded with the spoils ot ouice.

Bat, 'gentle.meuyonB of the acknowledged de signs or this new order is to exclude trom all tho offices of the country, the members of the Roman Catholic Church, thus not only persecuting'men on account of their religions belief, but' introducing ' a religiou3 te3t as a qnallification for office. The alleged grounds of this proscription are, that the Roman Catholics of this country hold such views ofthe supremacy of the Pope 'as to "render them uasatfe cit'zanr; that they are liable to be witherawn from' allegiance to tbo government and obedience ta the, laws, by a decree or order, ofthe head of their church. In tho year 1789,,durin" tho ash's. tion of he'question of Catholic emancipation, Mr. Pill, at the instance of the Catholics of London, transmitted to sixAof tho principal Universities of Europe, the lollowtng proposition : "Can tbe Pope or Cardinals, or anybody of men or any individual of the Church or Rome, absolve or dispense His Majesty 3 subjects from their oath of allegiance, upon any pretext -whatsoever?" Solemn deliberation was bad by tbe Faculties of. T! .1 y t ... r t, f ti jjivmiiy m uie universities 01 rans, 01 uouay, Tonvain, Alcala, Salamanca and Yalla'dolid, and all concurred in declaring that no man or body of men' of the Church of Rome had any power to interfere with tho affairs of other governments, About tho same time,' the Roman Catholic, Arcbbijhops of Ireland addressed thi Pope him self whose answer was as clear and explicit as that given by the Un versities. In 1792 the' Ko man Catholic committee of Dublin drew un t document, which was submitted to the bishops and archbishors of Ireland, and by them trans mitted to the Pope anff College of Cardinals at Home, who solemnly declared that it was conso nant to and expressveof the .Catholic doctrine. The following is the concluding clause :' " 'We have been charged with holding as an ar ticle of our belief, that' the Pope, with or with out the general council or that certain ecclesias tical powers, can acquit .or absolve us before God from our paths of allegiance. ' Now we utterly renounce, abjure and deny that we hold or main tain any such belief, as being contrary to the peace and happiness of society, inconsistent with morality, and above all, 'repugnant to the true spirit of the Catholic religion.' ' By these and similar responses, so entirely con vinced were the liberal minded statesmen of the British Parliament, of the falsity of the charge that the Pone, or the llishops of the Catholic Church for him, claimed the- right to ab solve British subjects from their allegiance, under any circumstances, that they espoused the cause of Catholic emancipation, and finally, notwithstanding the opposition and prejudices of the established church, succeeded in effect ing that great and iu3t measure c reform. The political independence of every Roman Catholic, outside of the Papal dominion, is asserted and approved by every Catholic Bishop and Archbishop of the United States. Dr. Eng land, the learned Roman Catholic Bishop of Charleston, says, in a letter to an Episcopal cler gyman: "To the successors of tho Apostles we render that obedience which is due to the author ity left by Jesus Christ, who alone could bestow it. We do not give it to the President, we do not irive it to the Governor, we do not give it to the Congress, we do not give it to the Legislature of the slate neither do you : nor do they claim it nor would we give it if they did, for tho claim would be unfounded. We give them everything which the Constitution requires, you give no more you ought to give no more. Is.t the Pope and Cardinal and all the powers of the Lath alie world united make the least encroadtment on that Constitution we will protect it tvith ovr lives. i ., , . . , . i oumrnon a general council lei mat council in terfere in the mode of our electing but the assist ant turnkey of a prison, we deny its right; we re ject its usurpation. Let the Councillay one cent ot tax upon any of our churches we will not pay it. Yet we are most obedient Papists wc believe the Pope is Christ's vicar cn earth, and lawful successor of St. Peter, Prince of the Apostles. Yet we deny to Pope and Council nnited any power to interfere with one tittle of our political rights as firmly as we deny the power to interfere with one tit le ot our spiritual to the President and Congress. We-will obey each in its proper place, we will resist any encroachment by one1 upon the rights ol the other." The Uatholic Church is represented by her Bishops, I will, therefore make two other extract's from the same distinguished authority! "Says he, ""God never gave to St. Peter any temporal power, any au thority to interfere with political concerns. And any right which his successors might claim for any of those purposes, must be derived from some other source. A Roman Catholic has no further connection with the Pope than that he succeeds St. Peter. Peter had none of those rights. As a Roman Catholic I know nothing of them in the Pope. He is equally Pope with or without them." And again tho learned Bishop says : "The American Contstitution leave its citisen in perfect freedom to have whom they please to regulate their spiritual concerns. Bat if the Pope were to declare war airainst America and anv R-j- man Catholic, under pretext of spiritual obedience, waa iu renins u oppose inis temporal aggressor, ne would deserve to be puuished for his repeal, be cause he owes to this country to maintain its rights and spiritual power does not and cannot destroy the claim which the Government has upon him." In a sermon, delivered before the provincial coun cil of the Catholic Church of New York, Archbishop Hughes distinctly and emphatically denies the alle gation, that the members of his Church, do or can owe any allegiance to any other' than our Own gov ernment The following is an extract from the sermon: "It is the very principle of. tho Catholic Church that a man's family has a third claim upon him, the second claim being that of his country; and for that country he must sacrifice property, and ii necessary, uie liseir. ne Kliows out one coun try; he can recognize butonecountry and therefore in the Catholic religion there is no such thing as tbe possibility of disloyalty to a land to which we owe our obligation. Is it possible that in country in which we enjoy such advantage;-: in which the government declares itself i npartially just towards all without knowing any distinction btfore tbe law; in which we are. made equal, is it possible. I say. that in such a country we should not love tho in stitutions and cherish them with an affection deeper man those who have been unable to make a com parison between this and land.-! and governments of bondage."' In a pastoral letter, addressed to the !, ;y and laity, and signed by the Archbishop of Cincinnati, the Bishop of Cleveland and the Bim- op'of Detroit, Vincenne's, Upper Michigan, Cov ington and Louisville, while branding! as utterly lalse the charge of disloyalty under any circum stances, to this government, there breathes tr.ch a spirit of christian forbearance and exalted patriot ism, that I will extract a single paragraph. The ext-act is as follows: "As citizens of this ereat and flourishintr re public we should be grateful to God for the blessings which its noble institutions scatter among all its citizens alike, and wo should fervently pray to God that he would bles3 and preserve tho Union, that he would vouchsafe mercifully to shower down abundant benedictions upon the fruits of the earth and upon the heads of all our fellow-citizens of every class who dwell there in, and that his guiding Providence would per petuate to us all and to our children, to the most remote generation, the clorious boon of equal rights and equal protection. Dearly should we an love the country of our birth or ot our adop tion; wc should faithfully observe its laws and cheerfully bear its burdens and if you Bhould-be called on to rally around its flag you should be al ways ready to obey cheerfully, and it needj be, to pour out your blood in its defence. This is what wo have always taught you, both publicly and pri vately, and this is what vou have always shown yourselves willing to do. There is not in fact a battle field of the country, which has not been purpled by the blood of Catholic heroes, vhn buve felt, while nobly fallinc in defence of their fl iT. how sweet it was to die for their ct nntay." In this country, where by the naiure r'our in stitutions no creed can be molested ana where by a provision in our Constitution it is declared "that no religious test shall ever be required as a qualifica tion to any office or public trust under the United States. It is most unjust to the public and cruel to the members of the Catholic Church, to keep alive a pwjudice, (in the fca Qpr'such prooP'as we have. munily, who cau ilo Honor to -the ciitsenship, which they are permitted to enjoy." It cannof.be nsid "that all the rights' of citizenship are open'tb Cathoho', when effici is denied." The right to vote as a cit'z.-n necessarily implies the tight to be voieu ior. ins cawardiy, to say, tnar. comoina tions to exclude all Ciitho!ie from office is nothioj L'mbrfc than trie exercise of the ri"ht not to vbte Yor P r'j.-.l i'-. . . muiviuuBis ana it ought to di?grace any muu, wi Ihefac'e ofthe proofs I have shown," who seeTrs and expects to tot office ucon the oniust and un founded prejudices of a community and alleged fears of disloyalty upon tbe part ot our Catholic fellowicitizetiS. George Washington, in a letter to the Cathgljpvacknowledges their services and tes tifies to their devotion to the .cause of American liberty, m the following, language: "As manutnd become more liberal they will be mora apt to' al low that all thoe who conduct themselves as worthy members of the community, are equally entitled to tbe protection of civil government 1 hope ever to see Amenca among the tore mo3t nations in examples of iusticeand liber ty, and I presume that your fellow citizens will not forget the patriotic part which you took m the accomplishment of their revo'ntion and the establishment of their government, or the important assistance which they received from n nation in which the Roman Catholic religion is professed." And aciin in his letter to the Bap tists ho says "If I could have ascertained the slightes tapprehensicn that the constitution, fraimd in the convention, when I had tho honor to pre side, might possibly endanger the religious right? ot any ecclesiastical society, certainty i would never have placed mv signature to it, and if I could conceive that the general government might , 3 i i . . . t. i:i . r oe so aammisterci?L3 torenaer uio uuaijr ui con science insecure, I beg vou will be pereuaded that no one, would bo more zealons than invself to es tablish, effectual birrier against the horrors of spri itual tyra'unv and every species of religious per secuticn." From the inaugural address of Jeffer son, delivered on the 4th March, 1801, we ex tract the following: "And let us reflect that bar ing banished from our land that religions intole rance under which mankind so long bled and suf fered, we have yet gained little if we countenance apolitical intolerance as despotic, as wicked and -r .. A .... .. i. capable or; as.bitterana oioooy persecutions. The entire political independence of, every Roman Catholic of tins country, under any and all circum stances, has been asserted by Bishop Spanlding of Kentucky, by Archbishop iv.onncic ol Ualtimore, and all the Bishops' of his diocese, and in a word, oy every Catholic Bishop and every Archbishop in tbe United mates. But, gentlemen, we need not refer to Washing, ton or Jefferson, or the Constitution, which guar antees to every citizen to entertain whatever creed he pleases, or no creed if he see fit, and which judges by political opinions and acts and not by re ligious creeds, yourown good sense will suggest to you. if you proscribe and persecute Catholics for their religioiH beliet, may not episcopalians, Meth odists and' Baptists be next proscribed and persecu ted upon some prttext fq-ially unfounded? Sup pose, for a moment, that the Pope of Rome were to excommunicate Gen. Pierce and Congress, is there any man who can honestly say that he believes or fears that the Uathoiicj would leel themselves b- sdlved from their allegiance to the country and obedience to tbe laws? No one would fear such a result; then all Ihis talk about the temporal power ofthe Pope is absurd and most unjust to the Cath olic Church. But, gentlemen, of all tbe churches, the Catholic is tho last, Southern people should wish to proscribe; for, a3 a church, she has been less , i - . . . : C l " . : . . 1 1 invoiveu in iae tuny mire ui pany pontics man al most any other, and of all the three thousand abo lition anti-Nebraska signeis of the petition of the New England clergymen, not one, 1 am told, was a Catholic, while in the present Massachusetts leg islature, tbeie are said to bchtty clergymen of ctb er denominatioLS But this new party of Know-Nothingj 13 not content with proscribing Catholics and treating them as a degraded class in the bosom of American society, but there are two million three hundred thousand foreigners in our midst, who are also to be declared incapable of holding office and thepio bitory term for naturalization h to be so length ened as to mtkj the law itself illusory. -This for eign element is an immense power in tho State, and the question is important, howsha'lit be treat ed? Shall we bind it to ua and to American re publicanism, by the'strong tics of aff-ction and the still stronger ties of interest? faball we fuse it as rapidly a possible into the great body of Ameri cm society, and make it interested in tbe peace, good order, happiness, and prosperity of our peo ple, or shall we alienate and estrange it? During the administration ot Washington, a naturalization law was passed, and met his apptov&l, fixing tbe ter ji ot probation at live year?. During the succeed ing federal administration of the elder Adams, the same spirit which entctard-the "Alien and Sedition" law, enlargod tho term of probation for naturaliza tion to fourteen years. But when the Republican party, under Jefferson, carao into power, the Wa3h- lngtonian terra was restored, and thm has tbe law stood, with no expression of dissatisfaction, until withiu a lew years past, except that the Hartford Convention rceommeuded the restoration of the Federal term of fourteen years, seven years less time than that which the know-nothiugs indicate as the proper term. Mr. Jefferson said, m his firit inaugural, that a denial ot citizenship under four teen year?, was, considering ths chances of human life, a total denial to a great portion of those who asiced or desired Citizenship under our government How rnnch worse would it be if the term were in creased to twenty-one years. It strikes me that in five years a man can form some idea of our insti tutions, and decide whether be bices the govern ment, and if he has sustained a good character, giv ing his labor in building up the country, bearing his share in the taxation and liable to do service in time of war, it strikes mo that he ought to have a voice in the representation of the country. Ameri canism cannot be said to bo the accident of birth, but a bead to nnderstand tha workings of our in stitutiuu? aud a heart filled with patriotism and love of the country, makes the only true Ameri canism, it is contuiuahy ..sscrtcd that foreigners are allowed to vote as soon as they arrive in the country and that the United States is made the Botany Bay for the convicts and p uuers of Europe. If such has been the ca-e, it is not the fault of the law, but of tho.-e who administer it. Turn-out tho Judges who will so negligently dis charge their duties under a proper law, but do not mascftwac upon tne uw itsslf. itislurther said, that these foreigners settle mostly in the eastern Atlantis States, and that they conio with European ideas and swell the tide of abolitionism, which is becoming so threatening to the South and the per petuity of the Union. But this is not true. For who can believe for a moment that Gov. Gardner, of Massachusetts, Or Wilson and his party, would have driven from tlieir support the influence of 100,000 fortignefi;? Who can believe that the ab lition element ia the fiee States would have pro- cribed the large body of foreigner?, if they had been abolitionists? Wo have shown that Uns'new party, which wishes to proscribe foreigners, his proved itselt, in all the elections ot the JMorto, to be moat thoroughly abolition, and it is simply for the rea5on that tho foreign vote has been most us ually opposed to them, that abolitionists dow seek to proscribe them. and restrict their iofloence. Who can be humbugged into the belief, that the foreign vote ever ftvored those abolitionist3, who sought iu the late Massachusetts Legislature to proscribe for eigners, and at the same lime gave all the privileges of tho elective franchise to the free .negroes? The local distribution of our foreign population seema to me, singularly fortunate. There are not more than 400,000 in the Southern States, and of the 2,000,000 citizens of the North-West, 1(400,000 are native born, from which it will be seen that the great ma3ses of our foreign population, arc in .the Eastern Atlantic States filling the workshops and factories of Ma-sachusetts. New York, and Penn sylvania, while thenative populalionof those States go lortn to ouua up new States in tne west, tnus placing the foreigners in .the older societies, where love of locality is slron-'est and where there are already fixed and established American tastes, hab it?, and customs, thu, as it were, by a natural law, most rapidly fusing the foreign element and identi fying it with American interests. It has been estimated that the. value of our for eign immigration i3 worth to 113 sixty millions a year, not counting n-hat the emigrants may bring witii them. Do you suppose the North, which gets nearly all the benefit of this immense sum, will, or expect to, deprive themselves of such an advantage? No, they do not propose to' stop immigration, they only propose to tramel it after it comes. What will be the effect of this upon the charac- ' ter of the immigrants who come to our shores? : Mb?t certainly the better classes will not come to the country, however much they may admire our j laws and the freedom of'our institutions, and how ever much they may desire to incorporate them selves into the great body of American, to partake of their fortunes and distiny, when they are told . i . . 1 ) - r - , - i . - j wai iuu privileges oi ciuzcn3nip aro ueuieu, or ?o long withheld that they would necessarily become an alienated and estranged class; doing the woik, paying tbe taxes, and liuble to be called in time of war, but having no voice in the representative leg islation of the country. .

REGULAR WASinXGTOIf CORRESPOSDEXC& Washington Crnr, June 20, '55. Messrs. Editors of Uie Union and American; Although thereis no further news from the seat of war the principal scene of foreign attraction and really of great importance to us as well ts foreign nations yet there are many details which giro us a clearer yiew of the whole operations than wo could divino from the first general sketches. Ion, of the Sun, whose opinions are formed upon com munication with some of the Russian diplomats here, as well" as on information through the allied newspapers, considers the successes of the latter to be overrated, and that there is abundant reason, to suppose that the allies may be yet defeated in. the Crimea. I hope it will be so; but I regret to say there are some things which look otherwiie. Yet should tho months of July and August ptove, as fatal to the alUes, in, a state of inixtionh as Ion. anticipates should-the Russian force, contrary to, the statemontof the allies, be even now equal to the latter, the expulsion of the allies from, the Cri mea in tho pext eight months may berealized. It is possible, Indeed, that they might determine; to. remain for another year, even if unsuccessfulin sit or eight month more. Their desire to possess the Crimea is evidently very great Tbo London limes has tai.d that for England to be vanquished, now in the Crimea ia to be vanquished every, where; and there is no doubt that it holds. th lan guage of the British ministry on this point. And it is easy to discern from the physical position of the Crimea, that it'mu3t be an object of great in terest to any power wishing r-ccess to' further do minion in the East, and as a means of protection from assault, through Constanti nople, ftcm the. west Now and England Russia both manifestly de sire further dominion in the Estr and. in addition, to this, England wishes to have a security against, any assault from Russia on the. vast dominions which she already own3 in the East,, If Russia succeeds in the expulsion othe alliest from the' Crimea, the consequences will be highly salutary to us. The war will be protracted in such a man ner that although no very decisive results can be oxpected to either party within a short time, yet the allies will be fully occupied with the oriental question, and we shall see most curious find even, wonderful movements on the political chess-board in that direction. The allies will have, no time to give Jonathan a drubbing, or even a scolding. Meantime by slaughter in their successes before Sebastopol they suffered severe losses. In their attack on the Mamelon Tower, on the night of the 2d May, the French lost 1300 men a greater num ber than the whole force with which we conquered California. And before the conclusion of this war although a brief peace may be patched up we may expect such a contest as will truly be the " festival of death, the vintage of the grave." Our memories must go back to find any thing like a parallel to the conquests cf the'Ottoman Turks du ring the 391 years of their prevalence as the woe of the sixth trumpet, or to the terrible slaughters ofthe Moguls and Tartars. How vast were the. conquests and how destructive the cruelty of Ta merlane has been often told in history. And such scenes, to the utter disgraie of cations calling them selves civilized and cliristian, seems on the eve of renewal, partly on the very same ground, with indeed a superadded area. The historian thus re cites the career of Tamerlane: "In the memorable battle of Angora, he defeated an army of 400,000 horse and foot, commanded by the Turkish. Empe ror, Bajszst Astracan, Canisne; Delhi, Jepahan, Bagdad, Aleppo, Damascus, Bourjas, Smyrna, and a thousand others, were sacked or burnt, or utterly destroyed, in his presence, and by his troops. From the Irtish and Volga to the Russian Gulf ; .and from the Ganges to Damascus and the Anehigelagof Asia was in the hand of Tim'orus, his armies were invincible, his ambition was boundless: and was on his inarch towards China, at the head of 200,000 of his select and veteran troops,' that tho Mogul Emperor expired, after having skilfully planned the invasion and conque'stj of that great empire." It was the rigor of a premature winter that arrested his march to Chia ; and the descrip tion of this event in the Persian hi3fo rian Ibor Anab3hale has been graphically changed into poetry. " Emirs und Kbans in lony array To Timonr's council bent their way ; The Persian with dtjeciod eye, Tlie lordly Tartar, ts anting high. The Tasal Ruw, and lured trcm Mr The German'a mercenary war; u But one there came uncalled nad lt, The spirit of the wintry blust; lie beard, ii wrapt in mist he ltx-:I, The porpoa'd trait of spoil and blood ; lie marked, unmoved by mortal woe, That old man's eye of swarthy glow ; The taunferV soul whoso single prida WH eau-'e enoogh that milli ons died, lie heard, he saw, "till era zy woke.
