TUESDAY MORNING, 31 ARC II 25, 1850.
KNOW-NOTHINGISU AS IT WAS AND AS IT IS.
We have said that no member of theNinow-to-thing
party can now properly consider himself as
Btill a member of that party, unless he approves of
the new platform, or is willing henceforth to ignore
all platforms of pnceiple, and to go in sclely for
men. The proposition is an evident one. All State
creeds formed before the national council, heldjn
June, 1S55, -were repealed and did not bind, at
Je ast in general or national matters. That national
council adopted the platform or creed under which
nil the elections of 1855 were held. In February,
1S5C, the national council met again and utterly
repealed that of 1855, and substituted another for
It. The proposition is made out by this simple
narrative of faots. Now, the proposition which
we aro considering to day 13 this: Who will go in,
or, being in, will stay in, under this new platform ?
In the first place, we will say, that we cannot
understand how the Patriot and its followers in
the late quarrel between it and the Banner and
Gazette, can now take back all that was said about
the ignoring policy and stand on the new platform.
Tho first named piper did lately maintain that to
ignore the 12th section would be death to know
nothingism in tho south, and ought to be. Well,
wag it not ignored? Worse, than that, was it not
repealed' and set aside altogether? Everybody
knows it was the records show it, and nobody can
But it may be said that something equivalent to
it has been inserted in the new platform, and there
fore all the non ignorers can ttill adhere to the
party under thesubstitute. We grant that, if this
It so, they can. But is there any where to be
found any equivalent for the 12th section? We
wish every man in Tennessee would read th"t3
question and hear the answer to it. What is tho
ll!th section? After decliring that the know
nothings ought notv to be held in any manner
bound for the obnoxious acts or violated pledges
of either the whig or democratic parties, the 12th
section states " that as there can be no dishonor
in submitting to the laws, the national council has
deemed it the best guarantee of common justice
and of future peace to abide by and maintain tho
existing laws upon the subject of slavery as a final
and conclusive settlement of that eubjrct, in spirit
Now, is there one sentence equivalent to this in
tho new platform? Acy thing like it or approach
ing it in any form or shape whatever? No man
living can point it out. They have tried to do k
Thousands of the members of that party in the
south have searched diligently for this equivalent
in hopes to find it and thus feel content still to act
with the party. But thousands, and we might say
tens of thousands, have searched in vain. The
nearest that anybody has come to it is the 12 th
section of the new platform, which is in these
" 12th. The maintenance and enforcement of all
laws until faid laws shall be repealed or shall be
declared null and void, by competent judicial au
thority." Now, then, we have the 12th section of the old
and the 12th section of the new platlorm. We
put them side by side for inspection, and appeal to
all sensible anJ honest men who want to be true
and faithful to their just rights under the constitu
tion, whether the last is equivalent, or any thing
like it, to the first 12th section :
12tu section of 1S55. I 12th section or 185G.
The national council! The maintenance and
has deemed it the bestjenforcement of all laws,
guarantee of common uatil said laws shall be
justice and of future peaeejrepealed or shall be de
to abide by and maintain dared null and void by
the existing laws upoo, competent judicial cu

a final and conclusive set
tlement of that subject in
spirit and substance.
There they are. Look at them !
The one maintains the) Tho other only main
existing laws on the sub-itains and enforces all
ject of slavery the Kan-;Zatrs, in general terms,
sas and Nebraska law until they are repealed or
the repeal of the Missou- declared judicially null

tho fugitive slave law (individual ever maintain
to abide by and maintained any thing else. Black
them; (republicans, or abolition
ists would say this; but
wculd at tho same time
'say that they never would
abide by and maintain
the Kansas and Nebraska
. bill or the fugitive slave
With this contrast of the two 12th sections of
the piospective platforms, we honestly believe that
it is the bounden and solemn duty of every south
ern member of the party to resolve to " retire in
a body, if the 12th section was s-tricken out,"
to resolve, as a portion of them d.d finally do, " to
declare that they cannot stand on the now plat
form." We know not how to make our appeal to
the know-nothings of Tennessee more emphatic.
The condition of the south, and, indeed, of the
whole country, is full of peril. Kvery dsy brings
the danger closer to us. The members who have
joined this new order in the southern States, must
know and feel now that they are inasmuchilanger
of looting their property and of being overwhelmed
by the to.uing storm as we are. Will nothing
wake them up? They have formed a political
partnership with thSknow-nothings of th8 north,
with whom they "have now held two conventions
exp:ssy to see if they could not agreo on some
common ground that would be safe for the south.
They came home from the first one last year re
joicing in the 12 Ji section, and crying to the south,
behold your safety 1 But bffure they started,
twelvo northern states seceded and declared that
they never would submit to the 12th section.
Soon after this, State councils were held and Penn
sylvania and New Y01U, by whose assistance they
were first passed, also repudiated tho platform,
leaving them (tho south) in a dead minority.
Such wa3 the condition of things during the
past year. In the beginning of tho present
year, the second national convention and 'coun
cil was called. Now, we pray our southern
neighbors and friends to tell us who called the
council? The bolters, or Cincinnati black republi
can portion of the party called it expressly to get
clear of the 12th section. Who called the conven
tion? That was called only to nominate their
candidates for President and Vice President:
not to overhaul the platform. Now, do yea not
see exactly tho struggle? The abolition know
uothlcg portion wanted to remodel the platfurm
before the nomination, whilst the southern portion
wanted to nominate their candidate on tho old
platform unaltered. Hence the severe struggle in
tho council about the platform. It was a life and
death struggle to retain the 12th section. Twelve
hundred millions of slave property depended on it.
The Union itself depended on it, and hence the
whole south, in caucus, refolved that they would
cot give up that section "nomatter what might
be the consequences." Well, now we see they
were overpowered by numbers aDd were compelled
to give it up by an immense majority. And what
was the poor substitute, or equivalent, reluctantly
granted to them by their northern brethren in re
turn for it ? Simply nothing but the unmeaning
admission that all lsws ought to bo maintained
and enforced until they are repealed or declared
null and void by proper authority! In the came
of God, of justice, end cf reason, are tho sturdy
JBtanUal slave-holders of Tennessee going
t v. J - " ... i . .

who struck SD.npblyjfor the rights of theSoun.,

"YillT. A. R. Nlon, one of the electors for
the S'.atc at latge, ever give his sanction and ad
vocacy to the poor, evasive, tiny, insulting substi
tute? No, we thick not, for ha voted ogainst

tion, and to bis eternal honor, he voted against
the newplaifjtm out and outl No, we hope thst
neither the nenspapere nor the electors ot that
party will ever justify that substitute for the first
tor original twelfth section. If they shall say that
they were content with il t:.ey can never getany
thing more than that from the abolition wing of
ihtir party and if they never get more, then
toe south is ruined and undone. If she shall show
herself content with the miserable declaration that
the fugitive slave bill, the Kansas-Nebraska bill,
and all the other laws intended for the protection
of slave property shall stand only until they can
be repealed, and that they must and shall be re-
pealed as soon as & repealing act can be passed
through Congress, then, indeed, the s'outh is undone
The know-nothing party of the south, although in a
minority in every State save one, is nevertheless a
strong and formidable minority. If such a large
portion of bur southern people shall be content
with no better guarantee of our rights than this,
then the Soutbo distracted and divided, must
surrender her TOSt amount of slave property and
submit to a long train of evils which we have no
inclination ti depict. The South is sorely pressed
from without and from within from abroad and
from our northern brethren at home. If more
than one third, we might siy nearly half of her
own people shall grow indifferent, or compound
with her enemies by taking such a poor boon as
thia new 12th section, then i3 she not, must she not
be ruined by her own dissentions!
55?" Mr. Bilbo in a recent letter to his paper,
from New York, says :
" The squatter sovereignty principle of this (Kan
sos-Nebraska) bill, and the extraordinary rights
conferred upon foreigners, ol American citizenship,
will defeat any candidate xvuh Vie Aorthern De
mocracy that will endorse it. "
What does tho Banner think of this ? It is con'
tinually charging and has spent much time in en
deavoring to prove that oil northern democrats en
dorse the " squatter sovereignty " doctrine. Sure
ly, those know-nothing editors are playing upon
" a harp of a thousand strings.
52" The Patriot concludes that the principle ot
the Kansas Nebraska is incorporated into his new
platform. The Banner has endeavored to prove
that tho principle of the Kansas-Nebraska bill was
" squatter sovereignty. " Does tho Banner believe
there 13 " squatter sovereignty in their new plat
torni? Too public are anxious to he&r from the
Banner on this point. Will our neighbor gratify

J2f The republican and know-nothing Legisla

It is in the discussion of this beautiful batch of
fanaticism and treason that the session ha3 passed
awav. without the passage ot any useful and ne

will mark and remember these things.
The Prospect in New York. The Albany
Atlas and Argus holds the following encouraging
language in regard to the prospects of the demo
crane party in the Empire State:
"The evidences of good feeling and returning
harmony among the demociata of this State are, of
late, everywhere apparent to those whp have oc
casion to watch the tone of public opinion. Old
animosities are wearing out, and the conviction
that duty and interest alike require union of effort
against the common foe in the impending presi
dential contest, is fast taking possession of the
minds of the democratic masses.

tW-The brethren (know-nothing and reputl
can) held a meeting in Albany, New York, some
days ago. Fillmore had a poor show still he had
some, nnd hero is the sort of show he had :
"Mr. Northup rose to defend Mr. Fillmore. He
(Mr. N.) was an American. He had paid much and
suffered much against slavery. He would now sub
scribe a rifle for Kansas, but he would not bear
Fillmore abused. He wbs not an abolitionist, but
he was opposed to the extension of slavery."
Can't the Fillmore brethren here help brother
Northup with a few rifles to put down th" border
ruffians, as the Abolitionists' opponents in K .asas
are called? Lou. Dem.
What the Abolitionists Want. A letter from
a Kansas Abolitionist, which appears in tho New
Yoik Tribune, makes known their wants in the
following terms :
We want men and arms, not money wo want
men and arms. Send U3 one thousand men well
armed, with half cavalry, and a few good pieces of
artillery with men to work them, and a thousand
Sharp's rifles, and we will do tho rest. No, we
want yet a little moro provisions for tho men you
send, for the condition of our people the psst year
has been but little favorable to agricultural pursuits
besides, the country is too new for much progress
in that important brauch of bmincss. If you will
send U3 the men, the arms and the provisions I ask,
nnd will make no appropriation for the army of the'
United States for the next year, we will soon have
law and order Bnd a prosperous State here in the
garden, as well as its in the centre of our great Re
public. If you will refuse supplies for the army,
it will fall to pieces and thus deprive the President
of that terrible instruni' nt of despotism. The
army is indeed a prst of no reil benefit to tho
people of the Umuu ri a'e. mil mibt be dispens

Small Pox. It nppou-s mat this disease is
spreading in various tarn of the country. It is
prevailing at Gfecnevihe, but to what extent it has
proved fatal, we havo not yet learned. A great
many cases have occurred at sheville, X. C , and
in that vic.nity. In some parts of Georgia, too, it
has made its appearance. The experience of last
Summer at this place, shows that the disease may
be starved out, by observing proper caution.
Judge DocclaI as chairman ofctlie Commiffik
on Territories in trio Senate, haafciade to thaifSody
a full and very ':eb!a "report on so much ofthe
President's Message as relates to alTtirs in Kansas.3
The .report is vt ry long, and v.e have only, room
for its conclusion. It responds to the call o! the
Piesident ; and meets the practical requirement of
the cc3j ia a way that sensible and. patriotic men
will approve : .
In tracingstep by step the origin and history of
there JCicsa3 difficulties, your committee have been
profoundly impressed, with the sigciBcant fact that
each act ha3 result'ed'frbm an attempt (0 violate or
circumvent tho principles and provisions of the act
of Cougress for the organization of Kansa and
Nebra-ki. The leading idea and fundamental prin
ciple of the Kansas and Nebraska act, as expressed
In the law itself, was: to leave the actual settlers
and bona fide inhabitants of each Territory "per
fectly free to form and regulate their domestic in
stitutions in their own way, subject only to the Con
stitution of the United States." While th'n is de
clared to be "the true intent and meaning of this
act," those who were opposed to allowing the peo
ple of the Territory, preparatory to their admission
iuto the Union as a State, to decide the slavery
question for themselves, failing to accomplish their
purpose in the halls of Congress, and under the au
thoiity of the Constitution, immediately resorted
in their respective State3 to unusual and extraor
dinary means to control the political destinies and
shape the domestic institutions of Kansas, in defi
ance of the wishe3 and regardless of the rights of
the people of that Territory as guaranteed by their
Combinations in one section of the Union to
stimulate an unnatural and false system of emigra
tion with the view of controlling the elections and
forcing the domestic institutions of the Territory to
assimilate to those of the non-slaveholding States
were followed, as might have been foreseen, by the
use of similar means, in the slaveholding States, to
produce directly the opposite result. To these
causes, and to JJiese alone, in the opinion of your
committae, may be traced the origin and progress
of all the controversies and disturbances with
which Kansas is now convulsed. If these unfortu
nate troubles have resulted as natural consequences,
from unauthorized and improper schemes of for
eign interference with the internal affairs and do
mestic concerns of the Territory, it is apparcut that
tho remedy must be sought in a strict adherence
to the principles and rigid enforcement of the pro
visions of the organic law. In this connection, your
committee feel sincere satisfaction in commending
the special message and proclamation of the Presi
dent of the United States, in which we have the
gratifying assurance that the supremacy of the laws
will ba maintained that rebellion will be crushed
that insurrection will be suppressed that ag
gressive intrusion, for the purpose of deciding elec
tions or any other purpose, will be repelled that
unauthorised intermeddling in the local concerns
of the Territory, both from adjoining and distant
States will be prevented that the federal and lo
cal laws will be vindicated against all attempts of
organic resistance and that the people of the Ter
ritory wifl be protected in the establishment of
their own institutions, undisturbed by encroach
ments fiom without, and in full enjoyment of the
rights of self-government assured to them by the
constitution and tho organic law. -gfi
In view of these assurance3, given under the
conviction that the existing laws confer all the au
thority necessary to the performance of these im
portant duties, and that the whole available force
of the United States will be exerted to the extent
required for their performance, yoor committee re
pose in entire confidence that peace and security and
law will prevail in Kansas. It any further evidence
were necessary to prove that all the collisions and
difficulties in Kansas had been produced by the
schemes of foreign interference which have been
developed in this report, in violation of tho prin
ciples and evasion ot the provis.ons of the Kansas
xxeorasKaact, it may be louna in the tact that in
Nebraska, to which the Emigrant Aid Societies did
not extend their operations, and into which the
stream ot emigration was permitted to flow in its
usual and natural channels, nothing has occured to
disturb the peace and harmony of the Territory,
while the principle of self-government, in obedience
to the constitution, bis had fair play and i3 quietly
wording out its legitimate results.
It new only remains for your committee to re
spond in the two specific recommendations of the
.President in his bpecial Message. They tre as tol
" This, it seems to me, can best be accompilhsed
by providing that when the inhabitants of Kansas
may desire it, and shall be of sufficient numbers to
constitute a State a convention ot delegates, duly
elected by the qualified voters, shall assemble to
frame a constitution, and thus to prepare, through
regular and lawful means, for its admission into the
Union as a btate. 1 respcctluliy recommend the
enactment ot a law to that ellect.
" i lecommecd, also, that a special appropna
tion bo made to defray any expense which may
become requisite in the extcution of the laws, or
the maintenance of public order in the Territory of
In compliance with the first recommendation
your committee ask leave to report a bill autbonz
ing the Legislature of the Territory to provide by
law lor the election ol delegates by the people,
and the assembling of a conventien to lorm a
State governmtbt preparatory to their ad mis
sion into the Unisn on an equal footing with the
original States, so soon a3 it shall appear by a cen
sus to be taken under the direction ot the (iover
nor, by the authority of the Legislature, that the
Territory contains ninety three thousand lour hun
dred and twenty inhabitants that beinir the num
bcr required by the present ratio of representation
tor a member ot Uongress.
In compliance with the other recommendation,
your committe propose to offer to the Appropriation
bill an amendment appropriating euch sum as shall
bo found necessary by the estimate to be obtained
for the purpose indicated in the recommendation of
All of which is respectfully submitted to the
Senate by your committee.

Indian Outraoss in Florida. The Savannah
Republican gives the following account of the bar
barities committed by the Seminole Indians upon
the whites in Florida :
It appears from the accounts that the savages
made a descent upon the Alalia settlement, some
thirty miles ea3tof Tampa, about ten days ago, and
at a time when tho greater part of the male popu
lation were absent to defend, as they thought, their
moro exposed neighbors. Four men, one woman,
and three children (name3 not given) were inhu
manly murdered and scalped, and other outrages
committed on their persons. A number of houses
were also fired and reduced to ashes by the. sav
ages. It is supposed that these outrages were
committed by the same party who burned the
house ot Mr. Snell and murdered a Mr Cunning
ham, near Manatoo, but a few weeks ago.

where will be found a call for contractors to go

difference, into which they have fallen to a consid
erable extent, towards the progress of the Koad.
It would be no less a matter of surprise, than of
regret, it people, who have so much at stake, should
suffer this enterprise to languish for the want of
that encouragement, that substantial aid, which it
must yet receive, belore the hopes ol its most san
guine friends are to be realized. Knoxille Register.

after be arrived in Pelham, all tended to arouse
suspicion. He filled the description given in the

touch and nothing too humble. A new proof of this old.
conviction, has just fallen under our notice, in tbe fhipe
of a Catiiahtic Pitt, from the Laboratory of that world
renowned Chemist DocUJ. C. Atir.
If we understand the subject, he baa carried that artiel e
to the farthest perfection of which it ia capable. Instead
of employing Drug in bis composition, as we hare always
thought tbe necessary and only way, be bas with eonsum
mate skill extracted the virtues of the nedicina lobe em
ployed and combined them alone in their purity together
Tbe composition ia then mixed and rolled by machinery
and steam power into a spenod pill which is wrapped in
an envelope of gelatine, for protection from tbe effects of
weather or time, and then thickly coated with sugar, to
serve as its passport over the palate. Notwithstanding all
thia labored perfection they are offered to the Public at
lesstban one cent each. However humble tbe department,
we think this may be aafely characterized as the consum
mation cf Art in iUline. ITorniny Kewt, Bait.
jgj" Tni relaxiDgheals of summer leave behind them
a long train of evils. Tbe most universal of these are gn
eral debility, and its sure attendant, lowness of spirits.
For these we can recommend a speedy and nnfuiling cure
in the shape nf HooBand's German Bitters, prepared by
Dr. CM. Jackson, Philadelphia. It is, in our opinion, a
medicine sui generis alone unapproachable. It seems
to reach the fountain head of the difficulty in the di gestae
organization, and thus to relieve the secretions and the
blood ol the maceriesmorbi, or the caase of disease. Its
tonic properties give vigor to the membrances of tbe
stomach, and promote tbe secretion of tbe gastric juice,
which dissolves tbe food, while its cordial, soothing, and
alterative influence imparts general regularity and strength
to the action of the secretive organs, and seems to fortiiy
the constintion. Such is our own experience of its ef
fects, and we believe it is confirmed by tbe evidence of all
who have tried it, or bad an opportunity of witnessing it
operation. For sale by Dr. Jackson, 1 20 Arch Street. See

TO TBE PUBLIC OF THE UNITED STATES.
AN advertisement or Mr. UDOLPHK WOLFE, lately
published, as I suppose, intended for the protection of
bis Schiedam Scnapps against counterfeiters, has come under
my observation, ana being enjagea in ine inanuuciuro or
Schiedam Scnapps, were I to let it pass without notice
through this medium, 1 mightbo considered among those he
denominates "Pirates ail Vedu-i ef Pvunn;'' bat the im
mense patronage and success that has attended the sale vt
the article manufactured by me, and the opinion of compe
tent Judges asto its qualities as a borerage and its medical
virtues, precludes the possibility of the idea that 1 am In
cluded among thoee he designs tolmp-gn. No doubt he
feels aggrieved at the depreciation of the sale of bis Schnapps
Which Is manifest to all, since mine has been brought in
Competition with his. Not only have I succeed In competl
ting with him in quality, but the constant and increasing de
mand of my article, bas enabled me. to furnish It at a less
price than he can, or does say ti UO In tho dozen. And
furthermore, he will soon become satisfied that liW caution
to the citizens of tbe "Southern and Western States" will
avail him nothing as far as I am concerned, for Ihe character
of my Schiedam Scnapps is too well established in those
States. to bo Injured by any such invidious publication.
The motive of his a ivertUemcnt 1) obvious to every one, and

him will fall harmless at my feet, 1 will here, for the satis

"It is believed that there is no other book in our language
which presents so good a picture of Spain and the Span .
iards as this does. The author possesses the necessary
qualifications lor tbe production of such a wots. The
Spaniards are a proud people proud or their country and
history proud of their traditions and poetry proud cf
their old romances and chivalry proud oi their churchea
and their religion and proud ot their manners and hab
its. With such a nation the Attache could feel a deep and
sincere sympathy. He was not so nuUerralistic as to be
haunted by the ghost of a ten-cent piece in the Palace ot
t-e Esconal. He saw everything, from the private lew
to tno public bull-fight; from the moonlight dance-of Ma.
nolas to the regal balls of the Duchess d'AIva; from tbe
needle work ot the Spanish maiden to the glorious paint
ings of Titian Velasquez, and Muril!o;and he has put np
on paper all that was worthy of record, which cams under
Bat tttij Is not all. He has given us a kind of political
history of modern Spain. His book will make Spanish pol
itics, and Spanish partisanship, as familiar to the Ameri
can reader as the conchology of his own "Hards" and
Softs." The account given of M Soule's diplomacy, ot
his heroism, is not the least interestingchapter in tba wcrk;
