THE THICKS OF THE CANVASS.
Wc firmly believe that the report about know
nolbiiig withdrawals at Spring Place was origina
t.d bvfthe Tmow-cothings themselves, for the pur
pose of being contradicted, and discredit thu9
thiown upon actual withdrawals elsewhere. If
v.-e were caught in that trap, the know-nothings
themselves have been caught in another one which
they have set for uc:
The Gazttit has for two or three day-cotitained
n notice that the names of six persons, which it
give?, as applicants for withdrawal from the know
nothing councils, are not to be found on the books.
Now tie original paper containing these names is
ia our possession. It was sent to a gentleman who
inspected it to be a hoax, and did not present tho
names for withdrawal. He authorizes us to state
That the paper has not been ia the possession of
any kfow-nothing council So, it looki 63 though
the knowrnothings were so confident that the pa
per would he presented, that they advertised in the
Gazette that it had Iten presented; and thus the
tricksters are very fairly caught in their own trap !
TI1E MOUNTAIN'S OSFIKE!
A gentleman who was present relates to us the
incidents of late public meeting? at McMinnville,
Lynchburg-, and Hillsboro', which were addressed
by Gov. A. V. Brown and others. Tte enthusi
asm and excitement at these meetings equalled if
it did not exceed that of 1844. AtMcMinnville
there were eeven or eight thousand persons pres
ent, and en old campaigner who was there declares
that the excitement and enthusiasm exceeded any
thing he ever witnessed. Gov. Br.owx, be declares,
made the grandest and noblest epeech he ever
At Lynchburg two were three thousand per
sons at the meeting. Gev. Bbown made another
capital speech. The eloquent Jon M. Bright also
dtlivered a speech or "a sermon," as he himself
called it of surpassing eloquence and power. He
discussed the religious aspects of know-nothingism,
and portrayed the terrible results of religious per
secution. U'c are eorry that we have not been furnished
with full reports of these meetings. From the ver
bal (inscriptions which have reached us, we believe
that a state of enthusiasm and good feeling exists
in that region such as not been known before since
tho old Jackson times.
HEALTH OF COL. GENTRY.
The Banner of Sunday morniug contained the
"Fh-im Fa t Tes.vkseee A. Ieftir dated Knox
ville, July 20, sys:
Col. Gentry is doing well, though confined to
his room and bed still. His discharges are natural
and produced by the medicine. He will be able
to leive for home in a few days."
The True Wliig of Monday morning has the fol
lowing bulletin :
' Col. Gektry's Health; still Tmprgviko. A
gentleman who left Knoxville on Thursday morn
ing informs us that Col. Gentry's health was still
We are able to add to the above announcement
certain information that Col. Gextkt reached War
Trece on the cars last Sunday, apparently in admi
iftble health. He wa3 able on Sunday to eat a
very hearty dinner. His improvement after Jcm
sos left him was exceedingly rapid. We are glad
to hear of this. And we think the Datrner bulle
tin, with a little amendment, is true that Col.
Gestrt's discharge from this canvass is produced
by the medicine Jonssos has given him.
THE RIGHT TO VOTE.
A question which we have discussed in this pa
per, in relation to tho right of naturalized citizf-ns
to vote, has, it seems, been referred to a committee
of lawyers, who have decided the case as we knew
they tr.ust decide it that a naturalized citizen, if
he has resided six months in the county, can vote
if l.c only has obtained hia naturalization papers
the day before tho election. The Gazelle thus
states the decision:
"The committee of our citizen lawyer?, composed
of Messrs. R. J. Meigs and Russell HouMon on
the pait of the American Know-Notbinp Party,
and Messrs. Andrew Ewing and William F. Coop
er on the part of tho Opposition Parly, appointed
to drcide thu point in controversy relative to the
light of foreigners to vote, in consultation yester
day morning unanimously agreed mat, me woru
"citizen, in the btate btatnte, relates
back with I
regard to residence, and that therefore the taking
out of naturalization papers at any time previous
to the election will entitle the foreigner to vote, in
case he has been, previous to the election, a bona
fid resident of the State and countv tho time pre
scribed. The American Know-Nothing Party
will cheerfully abide by the decision."
The Know-nothings have bitterly denied the
truth cf the exposures of know-nothingism which
have been printed in the papers, and particulatly
that feature which swears the members, in all
thing, political and SOCIAL, to be governed by
the will of the majority. We havo now positive
proof of the authenticity of this oath. It is furnish
ed bv Sir. Browklow, whoso evidence no Know
Nothing will question. In his last paper, explain
ng ho mu!t fuPPort Rogeus for tho Senate
over Mabry, he says :
"When we were initiated into the order, we
took ihrfollowiniT obligation, or rath administered
upon thehjlyBible, ancjiot having withdi awn from

Bell Bcxkle, July 27, '55.
Messrs. Editor?. I attended the know-noshing
mass meeting at Wartrtce depot yesterday.
The crowd was large but not so large as I expect
ed. I heard the two youn;: men speak who were
corporals in the democratic ranks bat now they
are captains among the know nothings, viz: Tni
rur, of Nashville, and Cbow, of Giles, and of their
sayings I em going to report to the world.
Mr. Temple opened the discussion, or rather the
abuse, for his speech was nearly all consumed in,
referring to charges that were made against him,
trying to make an impression on the crowd that
he was a great man. H(vabused the old whig
principles and denounced the democratic party for
violating their pledges to the people which caused
him to leave the party. During Mr. Timplc's
speech he read an extract from the instruction
given by a catholic priest at Nashville, named
father Sciutt to his church in relation to the
Sisters' School, which instruction he said he heard
fall from the lips of the priest, and he then said
that priest ought to be hung by the neck as high
as Ham an, with many other abusive words. When
be came to the conclusion he said the democratic
party had'violated their peldges to tho north by
passing the Kansas and Nebraska bill, that they
had acted in bad faith by stirring up agitation of
t he slavery question, which he said was the cause
of his quitting the democratic party. I have con
verse! with many know-nothings on this subject
and find a great many of them' ready to oppose
that measure. They are now makiDg preparations
as I believe to take a stand with tho abolitionist of
the north on this subject in the next Presidential
election. The Hon. T. A. R. Nelsos, next ad
dressed tho crowd. He did nothing but abuse
catholics in a dry old farmer style. I supposed
Mr. Nelson was a statesman, but in this I was
mistaken, if his speech yesterday was a fair asm
pie, but his text was so new and devoid of truth
that no man can aouit himself ivith honor After
dinner came the bigotted sweilcd-headed Crow,
of Giles, who is running all over the country to
denounce Apdkew Jonssow, and other statesmen,
and the democratic party generally. He made
powerful flourish; drank some liquor and then pro
ceeded to his task. He said that they did have
oaths, and any man that had taken them and then
divulged them was a traitor to tho American party,
and deserved 10 live in sight of Heaven and feel
the pangs of Hell. He said he wished them
buried with their face downward towards Hell
and so ou. This he said should ba the fate of W'
P. ('hambliss, and that drunken doggery keeper,
Dewit C. Williajii, of Lawrenceburg. I certainly
think he must have disgusted his own friends.
These are leaders of this pure party, which they
say, came cut of two old corrupt ones. One wish
ing to sec a catholic priest hanged by the neck
high as Hainan ; the other wishing men damned
eternally in Hell, because they as honest men have
come out and exposed one of the darkest spots
the history ot our itepubiic. When l sea men
thus infuriated it makes me more jealous of our
liberties. I can hear men daily uttering senti
ments against foreigners and catholics which woujd
have been dishonoring to them two hundred years
LTacrtEcno.Tenn., July 27.
Messrs. Editors: Yesterday was a glorious day
in old Lincoln A barbecue was given by the citi
zens of Lynchburg and surrounding country a real
democratic rally. There were more strange faces
aboutLynchburg than have been here since the bar
becue in 1844. We had quite a largo concourse
of ladies; being blessed with woman's presence and
smiles we have nothing to fear. This county
seems to be "wide awake" to her own interest.
She has ever been true to the democratic party
and may she ever continue so to be. After the au
dience had assembled, (near 2,000 persons I sup
pose) ex-Gov. A. Y. Brown made bis appearance
on the stand and addressed the audience in his
usual good humored style. He gave the know-
nothings "particular lessee, but not in a manner
that a know-nothing of the deepest dye could tako
exception to. He gave their origin; Mass
chusetts, the hot-bed of abolitionism. He held up
their pretended platform and showed that it was
rejected at the late know-nothing convention.
"We already have the majority," say the know
nothings of the north, "we have no affinity for you
southern people." He unveiled the future, if hap
ly or rather unhaply, these know-nothings get into
power, and power is what they wont, and showed
that they would ever prove uatrue to the South.
After he had entertained the crowd for about two
hours Jno. M. Bright, Esq., came forward, and of
all "the lickings" that know-nothings ever did re
ceive, it was most assuredly the worst There
could not have been any one who was leaning to
ward that party (if party it may bo called) who
v a3 not completely turned to the right about.
Even those who had takea the accursed oath must
have, at that time, felt very weak in the faith. He
was not at ail abusive, but what he did was by
powerful reasoning. He proved from the law and
the testimony, that the treaties existing between
tho United States and France, Spain and Mrxico,
in the acquisition of Florida, Louisiana, Calitornia,
and Metel'.a Yolley had especial stipulations in
them, guarding their religious liberty; and that their
citizens should have all the rights and immunities
of American citizens, and if these treaties were vio
lated, (and violated they must be it know-nothing.
i3rn prevailed, for all three countries were Catho
lic) there would he a just cause of war according
to the law of nations. This proved that the party
was anti-American instead of American. He not
only showed that it was anti-American but also un-
nViriifinnliilrtir!Gr nnr miaQinrmripa nnf fmm f.Vt
olic countries, and also insulting them so that they
would not receive our Protestant religion. Would
that the world could have heard him. After this
great feast of the mind the dinner being prepared
they all repaired thither to feast tho body. A'ter
dinner J. J. Jones, Esq , gave a short address of
half an hour, then S. Bobo, Esq , candidate for the
Legislature, gave another short address. Every
thing went offin style. Success to the noble cause
of democracy. May Tennessee, like the old Do
minion, roll back the mighty tide of know-nothingism,
Abolitionism, and fanaticism and cause it
to return to its den in some unfrequented part of
Massachusetts and draw out a lingering existence,
A temperance man informs us that the abolition
sentiments attributed to Philip S. While in a letter
lately published by ns, were denied by him at the
time, and that the charge was withdrawn by tho
person who made it. We reprinted the letter at
the request of a correspondent in Smith county,
and did not remember to havo seen any contradic
tion of it. Wo will not do Mr. Philip S. While in
justice. The charges we have ourselves made
against him, are, that he had avowed to three dif
ferent gentlemen his purpose to unite the cause of
know-nothingism with that of temperance in this
Stat; that the object and effect of his speeches in
this Stato was to produce this result and secure the
election of Gertky; that he is a know-nothing, and
principally anxious for the success of the know-
nothing paity. We stand ready to prove Lis avow
als to the three gentlemen ia question whenever
Mr. While shall authorize a denial of the charge.
And thesa avowals being proved, bis conduct and
his speeches are abundant evidence of the justice of
our conclusions. Let any body who thinks we
have done Mr. While injustice meet directly the
charges we here recapitulate.
POSTSCRIPTS TO LETTERS,
ij Henry Couktt. A gentleman writing us from
"E!l Grove says : " You any te sure old Henry
will'do her duty in the present contest. 'As faras I
can say with my own knowledge the changes will
stand, four democrats for Gisjar, and seventeen
whigsfor Johxson. The democrats who joined Sam
are all now ready t?0ght the good fight of Freedom.
It; seems as though they are more zealous than if
thy had not seen this Northern emissary. So all
is right side up."
Whits Ccuxir.From Sparta we have the fol
lowing news: " And now I will take the liberty
to say to you, that if it is possible to fathem the
depths that this secret order called kuow-notbing
can work under gronnd, wo may .very safely calcu
late on a tremendous gain in these counties: White,
Jackson and Overton. There are but few demo
crats that,remaia in tho order, if any. W shall
certainly make a gain for Jonssos in this county
irom iou toaoo, in Jackson from 250 to 300, and
in Overton a considerable gain. I may be mistakes
out i am serious in my calculations,"
Another letter from tho same county says : " Oa
Monday last there were five k. n.'s left the order in
our town. Four of them had always voted the whig
ticket, they will now vote for Johnson. There are
others that did not belong to the order but have
always voted the whig ticket, bat are now for
Johnsok, Gardekuirk and Savage. The prospects
are very lavorablo tor Garsexiiise, almost oertain
as taere are two know-nothings on the track.
There will be a large gain in this county for John
Washihgton County. A letter from Fall Branch,
in Washington county, says: "The followers of
Sam are dropping off at a rapid rate. The council
at this place passed resolutions to barn their book:
and I don't know of bnt one exception of them, all
being for Johhson, that ever voted for him before,
while there are some strong whigs who will go for
nimlhat never did before."
LETTER FROM GOV. A. Y. BROWN.
NASnVILLE, MOSDAY MoHNISO, )
July 30, 1355. f
To the Editor of the Union and American
Gentleiten : In looking over my newspapers on
my return from McMinnville, I discovered in the
Gazette, what purports to have been taken as an edi
torial from the Lebanon Herald, giving an account
of a speech lately made by mo at that town, at a
ueuiuurauu weeiing. x isice no note or tne inser
tion in the Gazelle, of such a tissue of low and vul
gar abuse about a man whose course for years has
been marked by courtesies and favors to, notonly the
editor himself, but also to other members of the
family. Nor shall I forget myself so far as to con
descend to notice the vulgar blackguardism of the
Herald, further than to guard my fellow-citizens
against being misled as to what I did say on the
occasion alluded to. My published speech at Gal
latin contains the full substance of my remarks at
Lebanon. My subsequent letter to the citizens of
Dickson county also contains & fair summary of
-what I said there. No position assumed and no
sentiment uttered by me at Lebanon, went farther
than they do.
I read the oath binding its members to comply
with the will of a majority in all matters, political
or social. I then stated that if this were one of the
oaths, and I had often seen it so published, and
never denied to my knowledge, then it conferred a
vast and dangerous power on the know-nothing
councils. That, under this power, they might meet
at midnight and strike down any merchant pro.
fessional man and mechanic at their own pleasure
and might strike them down by any means they
thought proper by slandering them in their busi
ness or even in iceir domestic relations. 1 never
charged that they had so stricken them down or
attempted to defame the reputation of virtuous
females, or even contemplate doing so, for I ex.
pressly negatived such an idea by pausing and ask
ing with great emphasis whether a 6ingle know.
notmng present wnen no toot tins oatn bad ever
had his attention called to these words, "matters
social?" I enquired further whether any body
present, not of the order, bad noticed them in tho
publications of the day. Several voices rpoke oat,
"that they never had. Then I argued the proba
bility that these words had attracted no attention
at tho time, the oath was taken, and, therefore,
those who had taken it had never contemplated
such fearful results and ought now on discovering
them instantly to withdraw. I reminded them that
the bad men of the North, who had devised this
scheme and prepared this oath, doubtless under
stood every word they inserted and might at some
future day, point to this very word "social" and de.
mand the fulfillment of tho oath.
Now, I notice in the Union of yesterday, that, in
my absence, some gentleman who was present at
Lebanon, has called upon you (for which I thank
him) and given you this precise version of my re
marks, and so would do any man of sense who
heard me distinctly on that occasion. In the last
three days I have addressed, at as many places,
probably not less than eight or ten thousand of
my fellow-citizens, without any manifestation of
the slightest dissatisfaction at the course of my re
marks oa this part of my subject Even in this
lying and cowardly attack upon me, it is admitted
and expressly stated that I spoke, not in the past
nor in the present, but in the future, "that the next
step might be," &c
I have now given the precise version of my
speech, and the Herald's perversions of it were only
intended to break the fcrce and power of it on the
minds of those who heard it, and by personal slan
der and abu3e to weaken what he has not the sense
to refute. If tho candid portion of the public shall
be satisfied I shall be pleased. If the editor of the
Herald, whoso name I have never heard, or any
body else, who feels aggrieved, shall not bo satisfied
they may seek "their own mode and measure of
redress." Aarox V. Bbown.
The writer has just returned from a visit to
Kingston Springs, where he spent a few days
pleasantly and with great benefit t his health
having suffered much with head ache and general
debility. Too much praise cannot be extended to
Kiuoer for his treatment of his guests. His table
is filled with the best of viands ; his meats are
far superior to these in Nashville ; (the best beef I
have tasted in twelve months I got there) his vege
tables are fresh and luscious; his pastry unequalled at
any public table, so far as my experience goes ; and
the whole of his cookery well gotup; nis servants
are attentive and polite, and rather too ntcmrroui
for tomfurt. The waters possess at least the virtue
of creating an appetite and preventing any bad re
sult from too great indulgence. "The air is fine and
bracing, and I cannot begia to do justice in a de
scription of the deliciously cool night, and the
sleep one enjoys quiet and undisturbed. The fish
erman can have his sport. A number of gentle
men during ray stay, having gone toHarpeth and
Turnbull and for three successive days getting fine
messes. An agreeable company with good music,
at night, the dance can be enjoyed, for among this
company, there are enough young ladies to "get
up a dance" without any trouble; in fact every
thing tends to make Kingston Springs tru'y a de
lightful place for one worried of the city, and de
sirous of comfort They are easy of access, and
no one can regret a visit to them. I regretted
that I had to come away, and shall return in a few
days for a longer sta7. "L.''

A CATHOLIC KSOW NOTHING 'CANDID VTE.
Some of tho kaow nothings here go so fir as 1
say-that, if it can be proved that the know-nothid
candidate fcr Go-ernor ia Louisiana is a Catholic
they will leave the i-onccrn. Let such recollect that
net one of the Vnov.-iotIiiug papers tere has pre
sumed, to deny the" fae.t. Thkv know it to ha true.
and daie not deny it.' And we add tothisnega-
tire proof the following poistive, from the Baton
Rouge (La.) Gazelle, a know-nothing paper. That
paper or the ICih July, has the following:
Tin: Nnutviq rv ttt, 4 Putt T.V..
had intended to refer to this subject more at length
than we did in last Sunday's issue, but the N. O.
;Bt of Saturday morning, exprerses our views, so
much better than we could express them ourselves,
we exti act from that psper. in commenting upon
the ticket it says:
, "This is a noble ticker, strong m all its part3, sat-
isfactory to every section ot the State, and which
has.already carried joy and exultatjon to the bosom
of every member ot the American party in our city.
It is a ticket which will brirff forth the entife
strength of the order, which will command a mul-
titude of votes outside of the order, and will be, we
firmly believe, elected by a msjoriy of thousands.
"The name at the head of the ticket scarcely needs
any commendation of ours. Charles Derbigny is
identified with the population of Louisiana by half
a century of service and association. In politics
Mr. Derbigny was formerly a whig, but for several
years prior to the organization of the American
party, had withdrawn from political life. He is a
gentleman of high administrative ability, of sound,
practical, sense, of the purest integrity, and ot an verse, where it IS laid doVn. em
inflexible attachment to principle. His firmness nl.itln.ilt,, iC nf -it .u
of character is proverbial He seeks diligently the Phatically, But above all things, my
path of truth and honor, and having once found it, brethren, swear not, neither by heaven
cannot oe maue ia ueviaie a naira urcaiu.. no. '3
admirod for his upright and manly virtues, and is
just tie right sort of a man for the chief magistracy
of our State. Mr. Derbigny is a Catholic."
The New Orleans Picayune, of the Cth July,
contains the following, which confirms what we
Lave before published, that the Catholic test is re
pudiated in Louisiana :
k- The Platform. The platform of principles of the
American party of Louisana, adopted by the Coun
cil now in session in this city, will be found in our
columns this morning.
. It is in substance the Platform of the National
Council at Philadelphia, with areservition and pro
test against the prosctiptiveolauscs against the pro
fessors of the Roman Catholic faith. The Council,
with a jealousy which springs from the very nature
of republican liberty, would not tolerate even an
ambiguity which might be construed to deny to any
American citizen ptrfsct liberty of conscience, and
absolute immunity from legal or political persecu
tion and publishment on acsount of his religious be
lief. With this notable and honorable exception,
the State platform of Loais'ana is the same with
the national platform of the party adopted at Phil
adelphia. Chattanocoa, July 23.
Messrs. Eoitors: The sick candidate, Col. Gen
try, arrived here this evening. He is evidently a
very sick man, chop-fallen, with defeat resting on
his brow Rd remorse lashing his very soul His
every expression is that of a man whose consci
ence is a citadel in revolt, rebuking him at every
step. Lost to the great fundamental principles cf
republicanism, he wanders forth in the dark laby
riths of hU secret conclave. Vanquished, a his
sing and bye-word to future generations. The
democracy Americans who hold fast to the doc
trines and precepts of the Sires of 7G, as embodied
and expressed in the declarations they put forth,
ia the constitution and laws they adopted, and vin
dicated by Gov. Johnson throughout the present
canvass, are sure to triumph. Free troth will sway
the untrammeled consciences and conduct of free
men. As the day of battlo anproaches the dark
lantern fraternity cowers. Steady, boys the day
is ours. East Tennessee will roll up an overwhelm
ing majority for Johnson. Chattanoooa.
Winchester, July 27.
A thing too good to bo lost occurred in this coun
ty a short time since. A certain married man had
joined the know-nothings. So soon as his wife as
certained bis misdemeanor, she prepared a bed in a
separate room from ber own and consigned him to
it. There she kept him for three nights, and ear
ly next morning told him that he could choose
between her and know-nothingism, that she would
not live in the same house with one of them. Is
it necessary to tell you that he left the anti-true
Americans, and again took a sleeping partner un
der the true republican principle.
P. S. A similar occurrence happened in another
part of the county, as I have heard. Yours,

Epistle Ot JaniCS, Otll chapter and
neither by the earth, neither by any
other oath, lest ye fall into condem
nation. " So likewise to Matthew, th
chapter, 34th verse, " But I say unto
you, swear not at all, neither by hea
ven, for it is God's throne, nor by tho
earth, for it is his footstool, nor by
Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great
celebrated Dr. Clark in his
commentary on this passage, uses a
language that ought to make every
professor of religion instantly with
draw from this oath bound onler:
'He that uses any oath, except that
which he is solemnly called by the
magistrate to make, so far from being
a Christian, does not deserve the rep
utation of decency or common sense.'5
I wish every professor of religion
would look into this matt en Thc
day is coming, and now is, when he
will find that by joining this order,
which, like sin and pestilence, walk
eth in darkness, he has done more to
retard and injure the cause of religion,
than by any other act cf his life. It is
from this view of the case that one
at least of our religious denominations
has made it a cause of exclusion from
It is certain, too. that thc oaths Tid
ministered are all illegal, and that hours jjj
tho.v who ndministnr tlinm. nnfl ilinv
who receive them, make themselves
liable to indictment under tho laws of
Look at that oath which says, "You
do solemnly swear that you will sup
port in all political matters, for all po
litical offices, members of this order-in
preference to other persons) you do
also promise and swear, that this and
all other obligations which you have
previously taken in this order shall
ever be kept through life sacred antl
inviolate." Mark how that wicked
man who devised this honid oath has
worded it! No matter how worthless
the candidate nominated in the order
may be, you must support him. If he
be a Benedict Arnold in thc order,
you must vote for him, even against a
George Washington out of the order
you must do so, too, th rough your
whole life! No matter how corrupt
and tyrannical thisorder may become
in after times, still you must hold "on
to it m its corruption ! Now. what
is all this but a conspiracy against the
freedom oj election, and, therefore
indictable and punishable by law f
1 his new order now says, every
dav, that it took its rise out of thc
corruptions of the two old politica
parties. Why, then, may it not be
come corrupt itself? and when it be
comes so, whv should it swear its fol
lowers to suck to it- even m its cop
ruption? Gov. Neil I S. Brown, who
is rendering himself most conspicu
ous in founding this new party, said
himself, in one of his speeches, "that
he has no confidence, for one, in thc
perpetual purity and success of any
party, however it may be organized. "
Well, then, a this Know-nothing par
ty is to be pure only for a time, why
brace it up, by oaths, that shall ecer
be kept through life sacred and mvi
olatc? No good man can fail to see.
that perpetual power was the object ;
and a perpetual oath was thc means
of securing it
Perpetual power! over what ? An
other of these horrid oaths informs us,
as it has been often published and
not denied, "you do solemnly swear
that you will, in ail things, political or
social, so iar as this order is concern
cd, comply with the will of a majority,
though it may conilict with your per
sonal preferences." What unbounded
power over every thing political, and
every thing social I Under this power
it can pull down any merchant or bus

man it chooses. On any night, when
the town or neighborhood council
shall meet, they can doom to destruc

may not like. All this can it do with

controLof such aecrct and.midniaht
The truth is that no man can tell
the extenrof tho-wickedness and dan
ger of this new and strange organiza
tion.' "Originally it was never intend
ed that, any one not of the order
should'fook into this charnel house,
filled with "dead men's bones" but
disclosure after disclosure, made by
men that ,tthc public could not doubt,
has'compelied the order to lift up the
veil, or rather one little corner of it,
and manifest, here and there only, a
few of tho huge enormities that lie
concealed m its dark bosom.
But no matter: i cannot come and
speak at large to you, nor can I writo
as fully as my feelings would dictate.
But if Pnad the power now to speak
to all my fellow-citizens of the State.
I would, say, "touch not, handle not
this accursed thing." In the coming
election let every good man unite, with
all his mind, and soul, and strength, in
putting it down- When you have
first crushed this
then you can look round, and, by open
and public discussion in thc way we
have always done, pass any laws
about naturalization which they may
deem just and proper. I repeat, kill
this know-nothing monster first, and
afterwards pass any proper and con
stitutional laws about foreigners. You
must kill it, or it will kill you. It will
kill your republican government. It
will kill anil murdei you in ail your
business, and professions, and em
ployments of life; it will kill no it
cannot kill but it will retard and em
barrass the progress of Christianity
more than any thing that has ever
happened in the 19th century. The
Secresy of the Jesuits the horrid
scenes of the French revolution
never did half the mischief to true re
ligion, that know-nothingism will do,
if it ever shall prevail in this country.
