The following preamble and resolutions,
adopted at a mass meeting of the citizens of
Washington, on the 27th day of September
last, present the general sentiments of the
"American party" in this city, and will doubt
less bo read with interest by the friends of
American principles throughout the country,
to wit:
Whereas a public meeting of citizens of Washing
ton wus held at Curusi's Saloon, on the llltli instant,
upon a call made in and approved by the Executive
organ, the proceedings of which, in the resolutions
?aul to have been adopted at that meeting, and in the
speeohes of certain selected orators at a subsequent
adjourned meeting, srejiow spread before the public
eye in the columns of said organ, and its kindred
presses, with approbation; and whereas said resolu- -
tions, however dressed up in abstract professions of
patriotism, assail principles dear to tho American
heart and necessary to the safety of the constitution
and to the peace and prosperity of our oountry; and
whereas, the Executive is invoked therein to remove
from poohc employment such officeholders as enter
tain those principles, thereby to perpetrate a ruthless
proaoripfacra of both Whigs aud Democrats for an
honest difference of opinion: therefore?
Kemdved, That mere professions of love to the con
stitution and to civil and religious freedom, when
contradicted by actions, cannot deceive the sensiblo
and vigilant guardians of American liberty, whose
spprehsnsions have been excited at beholding the
strides that hare been made toward a complete con
trol of our government by the subjects of a foreign
potentate well-known as tho avowed enemy of our
whole American system, to whose overthrow they
are solemnly devoted.
ftetvlved, That, as vigilant custodians of that bene
ficent system of civil and religious freedom bequeath
ed to us by the fathers of the republic, it is our duty
to meet and repel all insidious attacks upon our lib
ertiesi as well as all open assaults; and that we view
w^ith indignation and alarm the assertion of princi
ples and purposes, on the part of the recognised ex
ponents of the Koman Catholic Church in the United
?States, subversive of our republican institutions,
which constitute aggressions of such a character
that, if not now resisted, will lead, at no distent day,
to the overthrow of the American Constitution and
the complete establishment of dcsi>otism.
RyolveJ, That while, in the past political divisions
of the country, as Whigs and Democrats, we have
struggled in honest oonnict over contested-principles
and measures, all of which are now settled, yet in
the present crisis of danger to all that both parties
hold dear we will bury every remembrance of past
opposition, and "pledge to each other our lives, our
fortunes, and our sucred honor" not to cease our ex
ertions until our oountry shall be freed from the
dangers that nsw menace it
RomAxxd, That we proclaim, as the cardinal princi
ples of our political and moral creed, a sacred regard
for the institution in all its provisions, upon which
are based our glorious American principles?freedom
of speech, freedom of opinion, freedom of conscience,
freedom, of the press, together with a school system
lot'the diffusion of intelligence, sanctified by an open
the rule of faith and practice, holding as an
established principle that intelligence and virtue are
essential to the suooess o?a free government.
Jtmuiwd, That while we welcome to our oountry
the victims of tyranny from foreign tends, and offer
them a place by our aide under the shield of our ooo
stitutioa, we claim for Americans the right to govern
their own oountry ; and those who do not hie our
par
. That the fourth resolution of the meeting
?oomm?'duig to the President ?*
the United States proscription of all officers of the
federal government who may have thought fit to be
come members of the association of Know K noth
ings?* recommendation which, before its adoption
J" r?fgn'sed and acted upon by the Execu
tive of the United Siatoa?propoaes an alarming and
dangerous infraction of the pnuciples of self-govern
??'for the prompt and decisive rebuke
of all the free cituens of these United States, without
distinction of party, sect, or creed.
uT . *Te?3r ,>r*<e*t*nt denomination in
toe United States maintains the constitutional prin
ciple ef a separation of Church and State?in which
principle many American Catholics sincerely ooncur '
wlule on the other hand, the Papal Chureh abroad
openly, and always, and everywhere maintains the
doctrine of obedience of the ctvil to the ecclesiastical
authority, both in Europe and America; the sad and
ruinous effects of which, in the one, are seen in
otrantleaa emigrants flying from its tyranny and
misery to our own happy land, and in die other, In
the ignorance and poverty of the masses, in the
wealth and vices of the clergy, and in the ceaseless
insurrections, massacres, end proverbial instability
of our Southern sister Republics. 7
That upon these principles we appeal
frotn the opinions, whose proclamation has caused
to ot ^e United States;
imd. although we might infer they are an exponent
of executive feelings, from the ofcsial positions of
those who controlled the proceedings, yetwe will still
nope that the President, who alone haa the power,
win arrest the proscription slready begun of faithful
omoe-holders, both Democrats and Whigs, fur darinr
Amerioan and Protestant sentiments,
and will reject the mercenary suggestion urged upon
him by the fourth resolution of the meeting last week,
as a covert scheme to gratify the appetite of offlce
seekers at the expense ef many who xealously and
efficiently aided in his elevation to power, and whose
removal under existing circumstances will fix an in
dehble stein upon him as a man and as the President
of the United States.
Thst having seen the denunciations thst
almost daily issue from oertein preascs against tlie
?fosionuts" of the North, who are denounced as sb
sorbed in "the traitorous factions" which distract
those States, by which they are ono after another be
ing plaoed in opposition to the administration, we
were astonished to hear the pressing invition in the
?eoond resolution of our opponents to men of all po
litical opinions, without regard to their " political
antecedents, ts form a "fusion" with them in their
fhture sction -an invitation broad enough to includs
Oallissilf Abby Kelly, and Fred. Douglas, besides I
their coadjntors in tho two houses of Congress.
Hm<lnd That we, too appeal to all Americans
who love the Union, which "must be preserved," aad

and the righta of the Stetes which compose it, snd |
especially to the religious, the moral, and the order- 1

should be checked, and the government be placed in

formed of a compound of " iMiuattor siivereujnty.^

OUIi PRINCIPLES.
First. We Bhull advocate a repeal of the
laws of naturalization, or if tliat cannot be ac
complished, then such a modification of those
laws, as will prevont future immigrants from
becoming citizens, short of a residence of
twenty-one years, after taking the oath of alle
giance to the United States, and of abjuration
of all other powers, potentates, and princes.
Second. Vj e shall advocate the passage of a
stringent law by Congress to prevent tho im
migration hither of foreigners, who are either
paupers or criminals, and to send back to the
aountries from which they come all, such for
eigners of these classes as may, in violation of
such law, hereafter reach our ports; and to
require the President of the United States to
demand from any government, which may
send hither such classes of its subjects, imme
diate and ample satisfaction for such outrage
and a proper indemnity against the repetition
thereof
Third. We shall opposo tho election or ap
pointment of any foreign-born citizen to any
office of trust, honor or emolument, under the
Federal or State governments, or tho employ
ment or enlistment of such persons in the army
or navy in time of tear ; maintaining, as we
do tho opinion, that tho native-born citizens of
the United States l.avo the right to govern the
landx?ftheir birth; and that all immigrants
from abroad should bo content with tho enjoy
ment of life, liberty and property, under our
institutions, without seeking to participate in
the enaction, administration, or execution of
our laws.
Fourth, TVe shall advocate and urge the
adoption of such an amended form of an oath
to support the Constitution of the United
States, and to be administered to all persons
elected or appointed to any office of trust, honor
or emolument, under tho Federal or State gov
ernments, as will effectually exclude from such
offices all persons, who shall not directly and
explicitly recognise the obligations and bind
ing force of tho Constitution of tho United
States, as paramount to all obligations of adhe
sion or allegiance to any foreign princo, power
potentate, or authority whatever, under any and
all circumstanccs.
Hjth. Mo shall maintain the doctrine that
no one of the States of this Union has the right
to admit to tho enjoyment ol free suffrage any
person of, foreign birth, who lias not been first
made a citizen of the United States, accenting
to the " uniform rule" of naturalization pre
scribed by Congress, under the provisions of
the constitution.
Sixth. Wo shall oppose, now and hereafter
any ? union of Church and State," no matter
what class of religionists shall seek to bring
about guch union.
Seventh. We shall vigorously maintain the
tested rights of all persons, of native or foreign
birth, and shall at all times oppose the slightest
interference with such vested rights.
Eighth. { We shall oppose and protest against
all abridgment of religious liberty, holdipg
it as a cardinal maxim, that religious faith w a
question between each individual and his God,
and over which no political government, or other
human power, can rightfully exercise any su
pervision or control, at any time, in any place
or in any form.
Ninth. We shall oppose all "higher law"
doctrines, by which the constitution is to be set
at nought, violated, or disregarded, whether by
politicians, by religionists, or by the adherents
or followers of either, or by any other class of
perrons.
Tenth. Wo shall maintain and defend the
constitution as it stands, the Union as it ex
ists, and tho rights of the States, without di
minution as guaranteed thereby: opposing tX
all times, and to tho extent of our ability and
influence, all who may assail them, or either of
them.
Eleventh. We shall oppose no man, and sus
tain do man, on the ground of his opposition
to, or his support of, Democratic measures or
Whig measures; but wo shall oppose those who
oppose our doctrines, and sustain those who
sustain our doctrines.
Ticelfih. And lastly, we shall use our utmost
exertions to build op an " American party,"
whose maxim shall be :

A CLERICAL WARMING-PAN.
In many narts of Ireland a warming-pan is called
a "friar." Not many yearn ago an miMophUticate.l
Kirl u>ok service in a hotel In the town of ,
Poor thing! she had never heard of a wanninir
pan in all her life, though she regularly confessed
to a friar.
It so happened tliat on a cool and drizalv night
a pne?t took lodgings at an Inn. He had travelled
far, and lieing wearjr, retired at an earlr hour.
Soon after tho mistress of the house called to
the servant girl, " Betty, put the Mar in namber
aU."
The j>oor girl, not dreaming that by the word
" friar her mistress meant the warming-pan, has
tened up to the priest, who was comfortablv set
tied in bed.
l p went Betty to the poor priest, "Your rev
erent must go into number six my mistress
says."
How, why?" nsked the priest, alarmed at be
ing disturiied.
"Your reverence must go into No. ft."
There was no help for it, and the priest arose
(lonned a dressing gown, and went to No. ft.
In about fifteen minutes, the mistress called to
Betty, " Betty, put the friar into No. 4."
Betty said something aliout disturbing his rever
ence, which the mistress did not understand. 80
she told the girl in a sharp voice to do as she was
directed, and she would always do right. Up went
Betty, and the unhappy priest, despite his angry
protestations, wan obliged to tum out of No. ft,
and go to No. 4. But a little time elapsed ere the
girl was told to put the friar Info No. <1. The poor
priest thinking that every one was msd In the
house, and sturdily resolving to quit it next morn
ing, crept into the damp sheets of No. 8. But he
was to enjoy no peace there. Betty was again di
rected to put the friar in No. 8, and with tears in
her eyes, she olieyed.
In about an hour the landlady concluded to go
to bed herself, and the friar was ordered hito her
room. Wondering what it meant, Betty roused up
the priest, and told him he must go into No. 11
TTie pattern monk then crossed himself, counted
his beans, and went into No. 11.
Ft so happened that the husband of the landlady
was troobfrd with "the green eM monster" jeal
ousy Ooing to bed, therefore, before hit wile, his
suspicions were confirmed by swing between hi*
own sheet* a man sound asleep.
To rouse the (deeper, tad to kick hiw iuto the
street, wu the work of but a very few momenta;
nor ?u tho miatake explained till the next day,
wlion the priest informed the inkeeper what outra
ges had been committed upon biiu; aiul he learned,
to his astonishment, tliat he had been serving the
whole night as a warming-pan!

FURTIVE GLANCES, BY A LADY.
Mrs. X. Y. I. Sampson, is a lady of Mammoth
proportions. She stands six feet in her slippers,
and her circumference is not to be computed by
inches. She wears uny (|imntity of flounces, and
sports a crimson velvet talmu. Site makes speeches
at temperance meetingsis a fearful abolitionist;
writes political articles for periodicals, and argues
with every one who approaches her. She is fre
quently seen in exhibition rooms or picture galleries,
emphasising her remarks, with the catalogue, and
pointing out the beauties of art to a group of admi
ring gentlemen who surround her, and from the
midst of whom she rises aloft like a tower of
extraordinary altitude. Mr, Sampson 11 rarely
seen at these times; hu is a little man, with a very
small head and no eyelashes, and an astonished
expression permanently fixed on his features,
lie has been seen early in the morning sweeping
the doorsteps, in a very shrunken dressing-gown;
and often, during Mrs. Sampson's " reunions," a
shrill quaver is heard from tho back nttic, which tho
neighbors say is " Mr. Sampson singing to the baby."
That unfbrtunnto gentleman never appears abroad
with his wife, excepting when it rains, and some one
is wanted to carry the umbrella. He splits pine
wood to kiudlc the lire, in the back garden, and
takes the milk at tho area gate; and once an in
I quisitivo old lady observed hint slopping some dingy
article up and dpwn in a bucket of dirty water; ami
from the fact that Mr. Sampson's shoulders were
enveloped in a plaid slinwl, and his arms uncovered,
she sagaciously conjectured that Mr. S. was " get
ting up hia linen."
Mrs. Sampson devotes herself principally to abo
litionism. She informs her friends that were she
again a girl, " color" would be no objection to the
man of her choice. She once collected a contribu
tion amounting to several hundred dollars for an
intelligent negro, who represented himself as a
runaway slave, but who was afterwards discovered
to have been a peaceable resident of New York
from his natal hour, and to have supported himself
for many years by " whitewash ins and wall color
ling," and who had furthermore added an involun
tary contribution fVotu Mrs. S. in tho shape of her
watch and teaspoons. Mrs. Simpson frequently
electrifies her audience by descriptions of the fear
ful cruelty of a southern planter, who for the most
trivial offences murders his slaves, and subsequent
ly banquets upon them ; and the muternul portion
of the aforesaid audience have been affected oven
to tears by the facts beiug mentioned, that "hashed
piccaniny" is a favorite dish throughout the south
ern States.
Mrs. Sampson is reported to have horsewhipped
three editors for mentioning her as a "female," in
a paragraph which went the rounds of the pa
pers ; and Mr. Smith, of the " PumpkinviUe Ga
zette," trembles for his life ever since he delicately
hinted that " he did not approve of women speak
ing in public."
If you are not acquainted with Mrs. Sampson,
you will recognise her by an excessively loud voice;
by her always being attended during her prome
nades by sonic half-dozen gentlemen, each vicing
with the other for the honor of carrying her fan or
parasol, and by an indescribable flutter and rustle
of satin and velvet, which says plainly, 41 Behold,
yo, no common person upproaches ; room fbr Mrs.
X. Y. Z. Sampson!"

Facta lor the American People?The Je
suit Postmasters at Work.
Rcccnt developments have forced ua to the con
clusion that there is no safety in intnutiug letters
to the present management of the post office, con
trolled as it is by an intriguing Jesuit, who has his
inifi in all the subordinate offices from Maine to
California. The Jesuits want to know what their
enemies are doing, and the seal has no secrecy for
them. In a former issue we alluded to tho out
rages recently perpetrated by the minions of thu
Pope of Rome, in breaking open letters, and ex
tracting and publishing their contents, without the
knowledge or consent of those by whom thev were
written or to whom they wore addressed. We re
peat, that there is no safety in sending letters by
mail while tho Department is undor tho control of
a sworn subject of ? foreign potentate, whose spies
arc scattered thick aa autumn leaves throughout
this country. All the secrets of the confidential
correspondence which the department carries, are
subject to tho pryinggaxe of those who think it a
religious duty to laaEAooh inquisition. It is high
time for the American people to act upou the fare
well advice of the great and good Washington, and
guard against " the insidious wiles of foreign influ
ence." We have the following additional facts in
relation to the rcccnt outrages in New Jersey. We
copy from a letter in the Newark Advertiser.
Americans read, and then set:
On October 6th, Wni, Lewis, of Branch vffle, Sua
sex county, put In the post office there a letter di
rected to Willis L. Child*, of Patersou.
On October 8th, Robert T. Shiner, of Newton,
placed in the post office there, a letter directed to
l)r. E. 8. McClellan, of Patereon.
On October 16th, Poter P. Brown, of Patcrson,
placod in the post office there, s letter directed to
Peter C. Orsborne, of Branch villc.
On the same day Virgil Broderiek, Lafayette, put
in the post office there, a letter directed to Willis
L. Childs, of Patcrson.
A 11 thru* letter* were broken open whiU in charge
of the Pott ojfirr l)ei?iftmrnt, roptet thereof taken,
and the letteri reieiued and lent to their deitination.
Two of the copies were furnished to the Banner at
Morristown, and copies of the others were publicly
circulated in Newton. The.letters published in the
Banner were nlso published in the New Jersey Her
ald at Newton, which in tho same number had tho
following astonishing rcmiuks respecting them :
The discovery and ]>oesession of these letters
will show the plotters that their m/n-etnenti art all
Ieatehrd nnd known ; their secret disguises will lie
stri|>pcd from them, and in future they will have to
act opeiilv with the Whigs."
. The editor seems to take pleasure In announc
ing, that it Is the practice of those, or some of those
having charge of tlie mails in this district, to bresk
open letters, and thus watch the " movements" of
that part of the Democracy who will not throw up
tlieir caps for George Vail. It should be stated,
in justice to the postmasters in this district, that
for the last few weeks there hare beeni <?*>

principles. " *e ore not to be secure in our
person and fiaper*, as guaranteed by the constitu

of the most important branch of the government,
we mnst take such measures as the necessity of the
case demands.
The instinct of political self-preservation will sug
gest the remedy. Hitherto the post office has been
a sacred depository, whither no secret police could

guarded as if in the possession of those writing and
receiving them. If this is not to contityic?if the
