We have often shown that the know-nothing party is a revival of the old federal party, with ex actly tho same principles advocated by that party when it wus crashed by Thomas Jeffecson. In a late speech at Louisville, CoL Prestos took this cround. Beginning with the original orras tion of the Constitution, CaL Prestos eketched the events connected with the origin of the question which has so lately been revived. He showed that the difference of opinion on the subject of naturali sation, and the align and sedition laws, had given rise to the Democratic party us opposed to the Federal The latter extended tho time of proba tion to fourteen years. Mr. Jeffkeson oppo3ed it, nnd tlm ficf roars law was reinstated. Mr. Clay j va3 of the democratic school ot that day. TTith this exordium, ho proceeded to examine - nnd analyze the principles of the American party, end viewed it in its three main relations of reform in the naturalization laws, hostility to Catholics, and unsoundness on the slavery question. STOP THIEFI Did any body every see a prettier illustration of the crvof "StonTbiefl" by a man with fome- body's else watch in bis pocket than is furnished by the following from the Nashville True Whig: Caution! 1 "We tell our friends again, beware of a "last card." a desperate assault, in some form or other, upon the character and standing of ' Qentrv. of some insidious appeal to temperanca men or disaffected Americans, oa the day of e'ec- tion, or only a few days preceding, when it shall be too late to answer it throughout the State. V!e have no more to say at present, than simply to warn our friends Beware I - Has the True Whig heard any rumor from East Tennessee which might disincline "temperance men" to vote for Col. Gestrt ? And is the fear that such rumors may get into the democratic pa pers the cause of tho above " Caution ?" We only jk for information I Te have not the slightest curiosity to know where Col. Qectrt gets his horses shod, what he eats for dinner, where he cats it, or what be drinks 1 But tho True Whig has no doubt heard something, and fears the lex taglionis. HEAR HENRY CLAY! The Nashville Whig and Politician, of Novem ber 20, 1817, has been handed us byan old line wbi! of this county, with the request that we would copy the following extract from a speech delivered by Henrt Clav at a barbecue near Lex ington, Ky., on the 13ih November, 1847. These rentiments were received with delight by men who are now rucking know-nothing speeches, and pro fessing great fear of the Pope. "What shameless hypocrites ! Mr. Clay said : "What other rule can there be than to leave the followers of each religion to their own solemn con victions of conscientious duty towards God? Who but the Great Au'hor of the universe, can judge jn such a question ior my own part, 1 sincerely believe nnd hope, that those who belong to all the departments of the great church of Christ, if, in troth and purity, they conform to the doc trines which they profess, will ultimately secure an abode in those regions of bliss which all aim final ly to reach. I think that there is no potentate in Europe, whatever his religion may be, more en lightened or at this moment so interesting as the papal head of the Papal See." " PAUPERS AND CRIMINALS. Maj. Hesry made a speech at the Court House Thursday night, in the course of which he said, "there were half a million of foreigners coining to this country annually a half a million of paupers and criminal," said he with emphasis. We ex pect all sorts of exaggerated statements from the small fry know-nothing speakers. But we are amazed that a gentleman of Mj. Hknct's standing should make such an assertion. We place it on record, with no sort of donbt that it will give Maj. Hesry a good deal of annoyance after the speedily approaching death of know nothingisrn. Maj. Hesry also Eaid that these foreigners all joined the abolitionists as soon as they landed. He proved this statement to be untrue in another part of his speech' where he complained that these for eigner! were democrats. AMERICANS. We shall never call the know-nothings "Ameri cans." Their principles arc anti-American, and they have no political claim to the appellation. It is a disgrace to tho name ot American to call the know-noihing party by it. It is bad enough for them to have disgraced the once honored name of whig by applying it to their party. They must not be allowed to dL'grace the country by recognizing their title to the name of American. These know-nothings would very effectually put a stop to immigration by wearing the name "Amer ican" a few years. They would so completely dis grace the name that nobody would come to the country if he could help it. ONE OF THE FRAUDS ! AH the daily know-nothiDg papers here pub lished a statement of the speaking at Jacksboro, with a certificate) of its truth from Moses WniTie and another gentleman. The Knoxville Standard makes the following statement relative to Mr. White: The know-nothing editors of this city published a statement last week in rrrrard to the neakinr at J 0 . -j- ci " , "i tt.i. nuitviu ui u . inu uaLuta (i pear as certi firry. Now we charge thatoneof tbem, to-wii: Mote White never signed his name to that ilocument or authorized his name to be attached to ii. uemiemen yon must be hard run. We make mis assertion on tho authority of centlemen who have heard Mr. White deny it publicly on the streets, It don't make any difference tchat the know-nothings call our party. It has rendered every name which its opponent have applied to it in derision honorable. The came of "democrats was first applied to us as a reproach by the feder alists, when Joii.v Adahs first advocated the princi ples for which the know-nothings are now con tending. We have never had to change our name. Not so with the know-nothings. They have disgraced and abandoned every honorable name, from federalist down to whig, and ar now know nothings. WAsnisoro.v, July 27. Judge Minot, fifth Au dits of the Treasury, will succeed Judge Waldo, ts Commissioner of Pensions. DIQZST OF COKJiESPOSDESCt. Wilsos County. We have a fine tccount cf the ppeating at Tsbanon on the 21st. The meeting was attended in Urge numbers by both wh: and democrats, end was addressed by distinguished speakers from both "sides. Mr. U E Tn .stpjoxan an old line whig,.spoke in a tnanr.tr worthy cf tbe cause. Ex-Gov.T3nows also addressed the crowd, taking a comprehensive and statesmanlike view cf' the qnestions showing up "the social aspects of know-nothingism in a withering manner. John K, Howard, Wilson's favorite son, we3 called' on, and our friend3 say he made the most" powerful H speech of his life. On Ibe whole everything went off finely, and the democracy there are in fine sphv its. They confidently expect to make a gain in the old home of Gn. Jones. Oviuton Couxtt. We have good new3 from Overton. A friend writes us that everything is right there. The democracy are wide awake. Jame3 MoHenry, Esq., utterly demolished Good pasture, the advocate of know-nothiegsm, at Oak Hill on the 23d inst. Give 'em a little more grape, and the day i3 ours. Dixon County. A friend writes us that the know-nothing meeting at Charlotte on the 24th was a fizzle. The speech of ' A. jA'CETdON Don elson was dull, flat, and insipid, and thatof Jons A. McEwin (ooor Johrj!) was neither one thing or the other. He came out too late for his own fame or his own consistency. He was once right, and stood on the broad impregnable platform of truth, but he yielded Lis convictions to the behest of par ty, and like all men who sccrifice principle to poll cy, he sink3. His star once culminated in the zen ith, but now it is od the wane. There were about five hnndred at the meeting men, women, and children half of whom were democrats, after all the parade to drum up a crowd. NAtnyiLiE. Our old friend Jons Corbett got inveigled into a know-nothing lodge, and after seeing the corruption and trickery carried on in theoe dark holes ho becomes disgusted and leaves the concern. Ho writes us a strong,-common sense letter od tho subject, which we would be very happy in giving to our readers in extenso, but our space is so much crowded that we cannot Af ter giving a description of how he got entrapped in. to the order how he passed through dark alleys, over rocks, and through out of tho way places he winds up as follows : "Bat to ba brief; I reflected upon things past; that I had sworn away my privilege as a re. publican, and that I could vote for no one but the nominee of the midnight party, and that I was bound by my oath to do all things in my power for the advancement of that party under whose ban ner I had enlisted, though it be against the best friend on earth though he be the purest patriot that ever lived under heaven : and also not to re veal tho came of any person that I had ever Eeen in the council, or that I myself belonged to the order, or knew of any other person that did. In my opinion know-nothingism is preparing subjects for the Prince of Darkness. There never was a deeper scheme laid by his Satanic msjesty. Know-noth ingism, in my opinion, is nothing more nor less than the isms of darkness combined to undermine and destroy the union and happiness of our devoted Country. "I feel thankful that I have escaped from tho pollutions of know-nothingism and again placed myself upon the trne American platform the prin ciples set forth by our illustrious Washington, and all the democratic worthies down to the present day. And I glory in the thought that democratic principles will on the 2nd day of August next gfo rionsly triumph over all opposition." Warren Courty. It seems that pome of the Ishmrclites, or Know-No thing emissaries have been up in Warren county trying to introduce Sam in to that region, but very few desired his acquaint ance. The people in the mountain regi on breathe tho pure air of freedom, and like their own solid hills, tbey are firm in the cause of democracy. We are glad that the wholesome truths dispensed in these columns has had a salutary influence up in that region. Onr friends say that Know-Noth-ingism can't flourish long where the Union and American is a regular visitor. Grusdy County. We have only room for an extract from our much esteemed friend's letter from Altamont. We are glad to hear that our prospects are so flattering in his county. The democracy in all parts of the State are tip and working, and we hope to send him the greetings of the Old Guard on the 2nd of August. One more fire and the day is ours. "The excitement in this Congres sional District is very heated and intense, the bat tle cry is for Gov. Johnson and CoL Savage, an! every democrat who cxn talk or wield any influence m connection with the old line whips, are filled with the spirit of democracy in carrying on the glorious work of freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, freedom of the elective franchise, and freedom of the press. "A know-nothing emissary is occasionally dis covered wending his serpent-like way through the country, hut ae soon as his mission is known, the vigilant democracy who are ever upon the alert, chase him home to his dark den storm his fort- sack his castle and st the captives free to act and think for themselves as freemen. 'The democracy of this district were never bet ter united and in finer spirits, and determined to do their whole duty for their gallant standard- bearer, uov. Johnson, and thus save the country from tho rulo ofan abolition-know-nothing faction, than at the approaching election. Gov. Johnson is the man that the democracy love to support ; bold and fearles3, he has kindled a flame in this country that will burn on urtil it consumes every shred of Itnow-cothingism and liberates the coun try from the annoyanceof abolition office-seekers." -A friend in Nolensville, who has been a know- nothing, a member of the third degree, gives us a long expose of the rotteness of the concern. As we have exposed, until oar heart is sick, the cor- ruption of this more than Augean Stable, we must give only one extract from his letter: It is gratify Inn to me to know that I know sev- cral whig who will, dpspite of all the misled par ty, vote for Andrew Johnson, and thirteen that preter neutrality, and some of them have been know nothings, and I know twenty democrats who were at one time zealous workers tor Sam. are now ooing their Uvel best for Andrew Johnson, and all ot them have been memberj cf thu Council. E5? We publish this morning a very able let ter of the Hon. Cave Johnson, of Tennessee. Mr. Johnson, like many other eminent citizens of the South, had been a victim of know-nothing;tiickery ana menuacuy. h naa oeen circulated throneh the State bv them that he was a member of their order. It had been done for the purpose of de luding democrats into their dens. Lou. Times. Mr. Jonnson never was any sucn a "victim as the Times represents him. Mr. Johnson is President of tho Bank of Tennessee, and we don't believe half a dozen men in Tennessee ever suspected him of being a member of the American party. True Whig. It is very likely that not a dozen men who know Cave Johnson every really suspected hiin of being a know-nothin?. Yet his name was U3ed all over the State to induce democrats to join the concern. The men who told the falsehood knew better, no doubt, but they told it. Wo believe we had not less than fifty letters from different points in this di tnct, a;king if the report was true.. "You ought to join Oayz Jonssos is in it," was (be comrroi remark to democrats in this district aud through the State. This we know. Louisville, July 27, noon. Kiver rising with 5 feet water in the cbanneL MR McNEESE July uttLieik To the oJHcial Board of Vie Stale Council of A'iow JTothingi of Toiiitssee. jGentiamln; There came to nvy addres3 rjej- mailj lo Giet nov.lle, a package of. document?,j,ntep'ls I presume, for circulation to irjure G.v,; Joussos, the people's candidate for re election to the Chiet ; Exc cutive office of Tennessee. And now, gentlemen, let me tell you that yoa have very greatly mis'aken the man when you ad- -dressed the above named documents to memos'! nsve always openly and fearlessly, and to tbp.'ut most'of my ability without seeking the 'dead hours of night when honest men are in bed, and tho 'dis entombed spirits are walking abroad, to meet in some secret place under covert of night and with terrible oaths, advocateatbo doctrines as held and taught by the democratic party, tc-wit : That all men are born equally free and independent, and have certain natural rights amongst which are life, liberty, &c, and that all men have a right to wor ship Almighty God according to the dictates of their conscience, and that no human authority can in any case whatever, interfere with that right; and further believing with the Constitution, that no religious test should be requisite as a quLfica tion for office, and as Mr. Gentry's know-nothing oath bound midn'gbt prescriptive policy will lead to an utter subversion of the principle! upon which this Government rests, the principles to which have been a subscriber for one half century, is gentlemen, or at least ought to be with reasonable men, a sufficient reason for my not giving to your documents ha desired circulation. iJut, gentlemen, I have still other reasons for declining so to do, and one of which is this: I am for Gov. Johnson, the mechanic statesman, who, by the dint of his own energy and ability, has been raised from tho tailor's board to the Executive Chair of the State, and by having been elevated from among3t practical men, he knows and, can appre ciate what are cur want?; hence it i3 that in conse quence of the late damage done by fire in.the" Pen itentiary, instead of convening the Legislature at an expense of eventv-five or eighty thousand dollar, he, with two or three practical men, ao donbt Farmers or Mechanics, furnished upon their own responsibility twenty thousand dollars, and had the repairs done, and the Legislature can, at its regular sitting, make the necessary legislation upon that subject But perhaps, gentlemen, this is one of the reasons you have for going against Gov Johnson, because he seeks too much tho interest of the people and not of the few. And agaia, gentlemen, I have other reasons that I cannot overlook, one is that I am personally and intimately acquainted with Gov. Johnson, and can rely upon him as a priyate man, as well as a public servant, and I have never been deceived by him under any circumstances, and he being a pure, an able, and a reliable man, " I can find no fault in him," and as I understand his competitor, Mr. Gentry, can find none; why should we now turn him out, and put in a man who, while in tho Con gress of the United States, voted to tax us on our coffee, sugar, and salt to the amount of two and a half millions of dollars, and also voted to gag the people, a thing only suitable to be done by such men as old John Adams, of alien and sedi tion law notoriety. Ana lastly, gentlemen, I cannot give circulation to your documents, from the simple fact that all or nearly all of my neighbors are for Gov. Johnson, and they would charge mo with being recreant to my ancient principles, the old Jeffersonian demc cratic faith, or say that I had been insincere or was in my dotage. These, gentlemen, these are a few of the reasons for my course in the premises, and as there are but few, if any, aristocrats in Eastern Tennessee, you had better have your bundles di rected to a point where they will pay hotter, or exert a greater influence, and as Mr. Zollicoffer is not a candidate in this district for Congress, you perhaps had better circulate them in his own dis trict, for fear CoL Torbett might beat him while he is neglecting his own district in attending to other portions of the State. I remain, gentlemen, yours, very respectfully, Evan T. McNeese. 1317. When Gen. Tavlob returned from Mexico, in 1847, he met with a public reception in New Or leans, and was addressed by the Catholic Arch bishop of that city at the Gatholic cathedral. The proceedings were published in the Nashville Wiig of this city, of December 1G, 1847. From that pa per we copy the speech of the Archbishop to Gen. Taylor. How different and how much better a spirit thsn prevailed from the one which these know-nothing3 have now excited in the comma nity 1 Gen. Taylor at the Cathsdral We are happy to lay oetore our reaaers tne loiiowmg beautiful ad dress delivered by Bishop Blanc, on the occasion of Gen. Taylors reception. Immediately after the cer emonies ot ouering the hospitalities of the city to him, the General, accompanied by as many persons as couiu get, into me cnurcn, entered uie (Jatbedral lhe bishop, attended by his clergy in neb pontifica robes, awaited the arrival of the old hero, and when he reached the foot of the altar addressed him as fol lows: General When the late illustrious hero of Cha!- mette, after his miraculous victory, was triumphant ly rrceived in our city, he came into this holy tem ple as you do this day, to pay an humble tribute of thanks to Him who calls himself, in the Holy Writ, ' the God of hosts," thus acknowledine. as you now do, that it is God alone who dispenses victories. according to the unsearchable design? of his all wise providence. On the present, as well as on the for mer occasion General, such Christian like sentiments could not but elicit, on the part of the Catholic cler gy of New Orleans, a cherful and fervent co-operation in the discharge of the solemn duty for which we are all convened here. But while as Christian ministers we will give glory to God, for the brilliant success of our arm3 in the Mexican war, we may be permitted to join with our fellow-citizens in the ex pression of tbeir admiration for the magnanimous hero who, raising with a firm hand the glorious ban ner of our country, traced the way to our undaun ted band nnd led through the hardshim of a clori- otis war, to the victories of Palo Alto, Rasaca de la Palma, Monterey and Buena Yista. Our admiration. however, should not be confined to the mere recital of your victories, for indeed we were all prepared to hear that our gallant soldiers were invincible whenever led to the field of battle bv one who kr.p.w ho w to command over them. What excites our ad miration most is the spirit of moderation and mae. nanimity which you have uniformly displayed to wards your defeated foes. By such humane and generous course you have. General, exalted theiood name of onr happy republic, for yon have shown to tne world that the present war never was intended. on our part, as a war of conquest or destruction. under so glorious auspices you may well retire, for a time, General, and while surrounded with the ad miration of the worid abroad, you will enjoy at home the respect and love of your fellow-citizers and the gread u:ness of our ccuntry, cur most fer vent prayer shall De that Almiehtv God woulb bp. stow upon us, after the wonderful achievements and a prompt termination of a direful war, the precious blessing of a lasting and honorable peace; and at the sarae time that he would pour upon you, General and upon all our chivalrous soldiers, the choicest of his temporal and eternal blessings. fW Some of the know-nothing paper? think it very wrong for an attorney general to make a political speech. Will such papers tell us what they think of a Judge taking tho know-nothing oaths, presiding at know-nothing meetings, and making know-nothing speeches? New York, July 24. A correspondent of the Irilune writing from Mier, on the Mexican fror- tier, states that the battle about to be fought be tween the revolutionists and Gen. Woll. the Mexi can commander at Matamoras, will be decisive, and throw all the frontier custom-houses into the hands of Caravajal and his party should they be successful. Woll is expected to be defeated and has sent all bis valuables across therireriutoTexaj. The revolutionists have 2,000 men and 8 pieces of artillery. They propose to form a confedera tion of the three Northern States, Tamaulipas, Co habuilla, and Nueva Leon.

Ta order to show the completeness of fusion, we givo the following from tho. Cidc'ji- uati Columbian. The resolutions, which we have not yet received, are of the most ultra abolition .stamp : From ths Cincinnati ColumZian. The long-heralded Idniana State Convevtion as sembled yesterday morain?, at Indianapolis. Not content with sendiog"their delegates, the people seemed to have turned out enmasse. The greatest enthusiasm prevailed, nnd banners with stirring mottoes and devices were apparent in every nana. FORKNCON SESSION. The Convention asembled in the grove in front of the State hou3e, where the speeches were made and the resolutions read and adopted : The stats were intended to accommodate three thousand persons, but, though they were filled to their utmost capacity, scarcely a respectable moiety ot the crowd was accommodated, two tine bands of mu3io were in attendance, and their stirring strains were interspersed through the proceedings with nne effect. A tremendou3 delegation numbering no less than seventeen hundred was present from Bbeloy county. The ladies (Heaven bless their souls) were round in profusion, and by theirsweet smiles and showy cali co added much enlivenment to the scene. Anions the mora promiment mottoos displayed were the following : There i3 a North ; Itinerant v acrabonds. Bewares Down with the Pope, and America fo? Americans. One bome by a German. was not mal appropos : I have Come to Live, but not to llulo. The committee then retired to preparo the resolu tions. There being loud calls for Judge Morton, of Wayne county, be took the stand and proceeded in an .earnest manner to express hij sentiments touch i:ifthe nature of the questions which had called them together. He remarked tbaLthe enemies of the great American raovement'had prophesied that the excitement would all die away in a short time. He was glad it was not so, and thcuaht that the presence of so enthusiastio a host proved the pro phecy a false one. No, it was no temporary ex citement, which prompted the movement, but a love of liberty and a de?ire te have it perpetuated unto posterity, loos at Jxansas. Have not her min ions, backed by 3Iissourrufhan8. trampled out what little popular sovereignty there was in the Nebraska bill. Can it be said that there is no excu;e for the ex- istenod of the American party in Indiana ? here where a foreigner, no matter how degraded ir ignorant, can vote and participate in all the rights of citizenship after a six-months' residence, only having dcelared his intention to becomo a citizen ? No, we of Indiana have greater cause of complaint than the people ot other States, where a five years residence 13 the shortest probation. General Wilson, of Massachusetts, then took the stand amidst eathnaiastip applause. Adverting to the occasion as one of great interest and joyou;ness, he spoke ot the beauty ot the day,( the sun pour ing down hi3 inteaseat rays lull in our race, we coull'nt appreciate it, and said Nature itself seemed to sympathiie with the occasion. He adverted to the slavery question, treating it in precisely the same manner aDd language nearly identical as in his recent lecture at the Machancic Institute Hill Alluding to a rumor that Southern senators intend going to the Capitol at the next session of Congress "armed to the teeth, he said .Northern senators would not shrink lrom any issue, personal or politi cal. His speech throughout was well received. At one o clock the convention took a recess to two. A speech from George E. Dunn, Eaq , was to follow, after which tho resolutions were tos be submitted to the consideration of the eonvention. Since the above was written we have obtained the resolutions of the abolitioniit3 and Know-Noth- ings of Indiana. They were adopted without a dissenting voice by the great crowd assembled at the meeting. We copy the most important of the series: "Resolved, That we cordially reaffirm all the prin ciples set forth in the preamble and resolutions adopted by the republican or people's convention held in thi city one year ago this day, and, as appropriate to this occasion, we re-adopt the fol lowing part thercol: '"Whereas, we the freemen of Indiana, without respect to party, and actuated by a common devo tion to our republic and a common reverence for its founders, have assembled ourselves together in commemoration of the passage of the ordinance of 13 July, 1787, consecrating tho northwest territory to freedom; atd whereas, the unanimous adoption of said ordinance by tn9 representatives ol all the States in the Union at that date clearly evinces that opposition to the extension ol slavery, to the ex tent of constitutional power, was the fixed policy of our fathers: and whereas we regard the recent repeal of the eiehth section the 'Missouri Com promise' as a gross and wanton violation of the faith of the Union plighted to a solemn compact restricting the extension of slavery: therefore.

We publish the following letter from Bishop England at the request of a gentlomon of the Jewish persuasion of this city, who had heard of an appeal to the Jews of this city to vote with the know-nothings, on the ground that the CatboIc3 had persecuted the Jews. Bishop England was the Catholic Bishop of Charleston, and the letter was addressed to a Jew of Maryland, on the sub ject of the removal of the disabilities under which the Jews ot that State labored. Tho letter is as good a document on the subject of religious free dom as the member ot any Meet can write: "NonroLK, (Va) Jan 23d, 1S2G. "On my way home, I have, in this city..
