The following preamble and resolutions, adopted at a mass meeting of the citiiens of Washington, on the 27th day of September last, present the general sentiments of the " An^iwi party" in this city, and will doubt less be read with interest by the "friends of jt.^rirai. principles throughout the- country, to wtt: ?v?? ? public meeting of citixens of Washing* tonwSb5d.rC?m?'s Safoon, on ths Wth instant, a call made in and aporovod by the Executive oramn the proceedings of wnich, in the resolutions harebeensd^ted at that meeting, and m the mffitihss of certain selected orators at a subsequent adtourned mwt'?|r, are now spread before thu public ere in the eolnmns of said organ, and Its kindred wlth approbation; and whereas said resolu EZThowsverSressed us in abstract professions of uatriotism. assail principles dear to the American Heart and neoessary to the safely of the constitution and to the peace and prosperity of our country; and whereas, the Executive is invoked therein to remove frompuLlic employment such officeholders as enter nonest difference of opWon: therefore Kttoittd. That mere professions of love to the con stitution and to civil and rdllgioua freedom, when contradicted by setions, cannot deceivei the sensible guardians of American liberty, whose iriSJ^nTKve been excited at behoWing the ?tndasUhuit hare been made toward a complete con trol of onr government by the subjects of a foreign potentate wtfl-known ss the avowed enemy ofour whole American system, to whose overthrow they ^Tkat, as vigilant custodians of that bene fice tsrste? of civil and religious freedom bequeath ed to wbyths^bthers of the republic, it is our duly to meet and repel all insidious attacks upon our lib atttes as well as all open assaults; and that we view with indignation and alarm the assertion of pnnci &?&&&&Efi&SShW! uuiLi SSSSBftiaJtfSS MSft that, if not sow resisted, will lead, at no distant day, SILe?*?wrfB American Constitution and tha oomoWts ssiteWlshment of despotism. ff iiliifS while, in the past political divisions of the country, as Whigs andDssspcrats, we have atnwrled in honest conflict over contested principles -*"?mossiii<e. all of which arc now settled, yei In ths alrsssnt ensis of danger to all that both parties h<il<f dear we will bury every remembrance of past n^^lio> I ?? pledge to each other our lives, our Ji.i1 our sacred honor" not to ccase our m SfaJMl wintry shall be freed from the daaMS that new menace it. KaoietA. That we proclaim, as the cardinal pnnci ples of oar political and moral creed, a sacred regard For the constitution in all its provisions,.upon which are Hf* our glorious American principles?freedom of speech, freedom of opinion, freedom of conscience, fiewnomnf the press, together with a school system for ths diffusion of intafligenoe, sanctified by an open Bible as the rule of faith and practice, holding as an established principle that intelligence and virtue are nssi-it"' to the suocess of a free government. Rmolv*d, That while we welcome _ to our country ths victims of tyranny from foreign Jsnds, and offer them a place by our side under the shield of our eon ntitution we claim for Americans the right togovem SK; country; and those who do not like our government have our hearty consent to go elsewhere ' ^ toileSTThat'tlie^ourth resolution of the meeting at Carusi's Saloon, recommending to the President et the United States proscription of sll officers of the federal govern meat who may have thought fit to be come members of the association of Know Knotb inga?a recommendation which, before its adoption, bad been reoognised and acted upon by the Execu tes of ths United States?proposes an alarming and dangerous infraction of the principles of ment and calls for the prompt and decisive rebuke of all the free citiiens ottbei United States, without distinction of party, sect, or creed. . . . That every Protestant denomination in the United H la tea maintains the ocmstitoUutial pnu ciple of a separation of Church and State-nil which principle many American Catholics "222| while on the other hand, the Papal Church sbroad openly, and always, and everywhere maintains the doctrine of obedienoe of the civil to the ecclesiastical authority, both in Europe and Asnenea; the ssd ami ruinous"effects of which, in the one, are seen in oountiess emigrants Bying from its tyrannv and misery to our own happy land, and in ths ether, in ths ignorance and poverty of the masses, in ths wealth and vices of the clergy, snd in the ocascless insurrections, massacres, and proverbial instability of our Southern sister Republics. Retolvfd. That upon these principles we sppeftl from the opinions, whose proclamation has censed this meeting, to the people of the United States, and, although we might infer they ai* an exponent of executive feelings, from the official portions off those who controlled the proceedings, ret we will still hope thst the President, who alone has the po wer, will arrest the proscription alreadybegnn of faithful office-holders, both Democrats and Whip, for daring to entertain American and Protestant sentimefita, and will reject the mercenary suggestion urged upon him by tlic fourth resolution of the meeting last week, as a covert scheme to gratify the appetite "foffice eeekers at the expense mf many who soalonsly and efficiently aided in his elevation to power, and whose removal under existing circumstances will flxan in delible stain upon him as a man and as the 1 resident of the United States. . K?lotd, That having seen the deminwabons that almost daflv issue from certain presses against the " fusionista" of the North, who are denounsed as ab sorbed in "the traitorous factions which distract those States, by which they are one after another be ing placed in opposition to the administration, we were astonished to hear the pressing invition in the ?eoond resolution of our opponents to men of sll po likical <ipioiona, without rt>jard ^ antecedents," ta form s "fusion with them in their future action?an invitation broad enough to include (Jarriaon, Abby Kelly, and Fred. Douglaa, besides their coadjutors in the two houses of Congress. KmolrvJ, That we, too appeal to all Americans who love the Union, which "must be preserved, and the constitution, which established and maintains it and the rights of the States which compose it, and especially to the religious, tha moral. Mid the order loving classes, to nnito with us ui effecting ths re ft naTnecessary to the safrty and prosperity of our country, believing, as we do, that it is high time the career of interested snd unscrupulous demagogues should he checked, and the ytverpmeirt bc plsesd jn the hands of men acquainted with its character spirit, snd who duly vslue its countless blessinp. And whereas we believe in the competency, aiiliiv, and right of Amerioan-boni citixens to govern their own cou n try: therefore _ , . , JtstM, That we will not vote for nor sssist in elevating foreigners by birth to offices of trust, emol ument, or honor under our government: nor will we vote for or sssist in elevating to such offioes any American-born citiiens who reoogmse or hold them gelfM under any allegiance whatever to any foreign ??* * b. totally repealed or materially altered, and the term of residence before admission to the rights of atusn ahip be extended to the period of twenty-one rears.

H and I. sov 16 OUR PRINCIPLES First. We shall advocate a repeal of the laws of naturalization, or if that cannot be ac complished) then such a modification of those laws, aa wUi prevent future Immigrant* from becoming dtiae**, short of a residence of twenty-one years* after taking the oath of alle giance to the United State*, tod of abjuration of all other powers, potentate*, and prince*. Second. We shall advocate the passage of a stringent law by Congress tO prevent the im migration hither of foreigners, who are either paupers or criminal*, and to send back to the countries from which they come all, tuch 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 *ond hither such classes of its subjects, imme diate and ample satisfaction for tuch outrage, and a proper indemnity against the repetition thereof. Third. We shall oppose the election or ap pointment of my foreign-Urn cititen to any office of trust, honor or emolument, under the Federal or State governments, or the employ ment or enlistment of such persons in the army or navy in time of tear; maintaining, as we do the opinion, that the native-born citizens of the United States have the right to govern the land of their birth; and that all immigrants from abroad should be content with the enjoy ment of life, liberty and property, under our institutions, without seeking to participate in the enaction, administration, or execution of our laws. fourth. We shall advocate and urge the adoption of such an amended form of an oath to support the Constitution of the United State*, and. to be administered to all persons elected or appointed to any office of trust, honor, or emolument, under the Federal or State gov ernments, as will effoctually exclude from such offices all persons, who shall not directly and explicitly recognise the obligations and bind ing forco of the Constitution of the United States, as paramount to all obligations of adhe sion or allegiance to any foreign prince, power, potentate, or authority whatever, under any and all circumstances. F\fth. We shall maintain the doctrine that no one of the States of this Union has the right to admit to the enjoyment of free suffrage any person of foreign birth, who has not been Jirst made a eitiaen of the United State*, according 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 wliat class of religionists shall seek to bring about such union. Seventh. We shall vigorously maintain the vested 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, holding it as a cardinal maxim, that religious faith is 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 persons. Tenth. We Bhall maintain and deynd the constitution as it stands, the Union as it ex ists, and the right* of the States, without di minution as guaranteed thereby: opposing at all times, and to the extent of our ability and influence, all who may assail them, or either of them. Eleventh. We shall oppose no man, and sus tain no man, on the ground of his opposition to, or his support of. Democratic measures, or Whig measures; but we shall oppose those who oppose our doctrines, and sustain those who sustain our doctrine*. Twelfth. And lastly, we shall use our utmost exertions to build up an "American party," whose maxim shall be: Americans su all kulk their Country ! ^ THE POST OFFICE.

The thtMbutton of the proceeds of the publio lands anion* the several 8tatee, as formerly claimed by one JjjV !w ?? "PPf*?*"'" of those proceeds solely in ,^e n?t'tna! Treasury, as claimed by the other party, have both yielded to a oompromise or these con flicting opinions, so far. at least, as to tint these ques tions at tyuet between Whigs and Democrats. A plan formed of a Compound of ''squatter soverei(rnty|,rof graduation, and of a " surrender to the Statea" in which they lie, seems likely to withdraw the public ??? . m *rena of Aiture party ooutests. The improvement of harbort and rivert by congres sional aid, on which political parties have hitherto ainered at different times, has now become less a ques tion of principle than of local and sectional contest ; and it Will doubtless bo adjusted by the next Con gress, upon that basis of liberality and justice de manded by the spirit of the age and the true interests of the oountry. Other questions) of Minor importance, 011 which, at different times, the two prominent parties of" the coun try disagreed, have now, by a change of circumstances, become obsolete. What, then, remain as issues of any theoretical or practical importance between Whigs and Democratsf We know of none; and if these hitherto rival parties shall maintain their respective organizations, they will do so for the mere sake of tho tpoilt of power / But new issues have arisen having no reference to the partv organizations of Whigs and Democrats? issues which are vastly important in their bearing upon the future welfare of the country?and which issues must, in their discussion, progress, and termi nation, annihilate these two parties, which, for years past, bare battled, with alternate success, for political supremacy. r A new era is at hand?an era which will be char acterized, in the ftiture history of these States, as the fRA patriotism! Throughout the length and fu0*? K*?** and glorious Union, the masses of tho American people have spontaneously and simulta neously started the inquiry?" Am not Americans CAPABLE or GOVERNING THEIR C'oUNTBr t" This in quiry u as universal as it is natural and pertinent. The retponee is being giveu in the thousands of asso ciations springing up in all portions of the United i tea, ana resting on the single basis, that the native born cituene of th.it Union ha ve the capacity and the wiU to adrmnxtler their men (forernment, to protect the right* which they haw inherits!, and to perpetuate the atTn* a'U^ *fu**Pend*nCf <(f their native land! . "all we trace the cautet of this spontaneous and universal uprising of the masses of our countrymen ? 1 be evils incident to the indiscriminate immigration or foreigners into our country?the consequences of permitting such immigrants to enjoy the right of suffrage?and the degrading effect of elevating for eigners to posts of honor and trust under our gov ernment; all thete have been seen and known to our people for years past, and yet vuM now, with few exceptions, the American people have seemed to be blind to the progress of foreignieni in the laud. We need not, on the occasion of presenting this circular protnectut to the country, assign the mute* for this sudden and general manifestation of the nurpote of the American people to take the reins of govern ment into their own hands; it is sufficient for the object we have now in view to etate the undeniable and obvious fact that tveh yurpote ejeiet*, We now oome forward to present to our fellow citizens the mode and means of concentrating the opinions and of harmonizing the action of those who are disposed to unite in the formation of an " Atiier tcan party," whose pur/mteshall be to find a renie<ly T- i manif?"* evil* ichich hart come upon tit, ami which art yearly increating under the dieattrou* ope "I"" '<"r* ?f naturalization ! We propose to establish, in oonforraitr with the wishes of thousands or the citizens of this District, and of a large number or our friends in the different States, a daily and weekly paper, to be oalled THE AMERICAN OROAN. The publication will commence on the 18th day of November daily and on the 20th weekly. A cash capital, amply sufficient to commence and to oonUnue the enterprise, has been subscribed and secured to be advanoed bv a number of wealthy and influential gentlemen; and we sre insured a daily circulation surpassing that of any paper now pub lished in Washington city. The iiumber of our weeklysubscribere will depend upon the enthusiasm of our friends in the several States, but we have such assurances that we cannot doubt we shall commence with many thontandt ? and that a year will not trans pire before ear weekly list will be swelled to more than ont hundred thoutand. Our position at the seat of the federal government, the centre of our political system, where all the rep resentatives of the States, and of the people annually assemble, and where prominent men of all parties periodically sojourn for many months, is considered by as, and by our friends, as the most favorable one for the publication Of the oroam or the American rA?rr; and if the most nntiring devotion to the ad vocacy of the doctrines and policy of thia party shall five us s claim to its tupnort, we know we shall de serve, and we trust we slfall receive it. We cannot perhaps more distinctly and concisely define the basis on which the American Organ is es tablished than by presenting the following extract, .j" eyT adopt from an address of a former / reeident of the Miteouri A alive American Attoeia tton, and published st Bt Louis in February, 1841, to "Tm perpetration or Amirican rtimoi is ou? OWRCT, American bights ocr motto, and the Amer ican PARTT or* COGNOMEN." Our position is Urns defined. We shall advocate euch mature as will in our judgment, if carried out, perpetuate our freedom and protect our native rights; nor shall we at any time deviate from the psth of duty as the orgau of the American party, and the ad vocate of American righlt. We shall neither sustain nor oppose any political measures on the ground that they emanato from a liemorrstic or from a Whig administration; but we shnll discuss sll political questions with the most perfect freedom from favor or prejudice, toward the present or any future administration. Keeping al ways in view the principles and pnrposes or the Ainericmn party, we shall battle for those principles Slid purposes, while as an independent journal, we shair approve what we think is right and condemn what we think is wrong in the principle of sll public men and of all political parties. The editor of the American Organ will be a Democrat of the school of Jefferson and Madison progressive in his notions of public policy, yet oonsistcnt in his advocacy of the rights of the States. No essay or editorial shall ever appear in the American Organ the tendency of which would bo to prejudice the rights or wound the feelings of the citi zens of nny of the States. Ho far as the influence of this paper shall extend, the constitutional rights of each, and of all the States, shall be maintained Ift Mof/i that (As institution of nhivery bplong* fxchi*ivdy to thote SUUet in which it oriMe.
