Retohtd, That mere professions of love to the con- 1 stitntion and to civil and religious freedom, when contradicted by actions, cannot deceive the sensible and vigilant guardians of American liberty, whose apprehensions have been excited at beholding the strides that have been made toward a complete con trol of our government by the subjects of a foreign potentate well-known as the avowed enemy of our whole American system, to whose overthrow they are solemnly devoted. **?*?. H r4<n1?nt custodians of that bene neeut system of civil and religious freedom bequeath ed to us by the fcthers of the republic, it is our duty to meet and repel all insidious attacks upon our lib ertiesas well as aU open assaults; and that we view with indignation and alarm the assertion of princi ples end puroows, on the pert of the rooognised ex ponents of the Roman Catholic Church in the United L- l1* subversive o(f our republican institutions which constitute aggressions of such a character that, if not now resisted, will lead, at no distant day. to the overthrow of the American Constitution and the complete establishment of despotism. * ' Th*' while, in the past political divisions ?f _i M Whigs and Democrats, wo have honest conflux over contested principles and measures, all of which are now settled, yet ia the nreesatensis of danger to all that both parties hold dear we will bury every remembrance of past opposition, and "pledge to eaeh other our lives, our tunes, and our saered honor" not to oease our ex ertions until our eonntry shall be freed from the dangers that new menaoe it RnUvtd, That we proclaim, as the cardinal prinei P'es of "or political and moral creed, a sacred regard - fw the constitution in all its previsions, upon which art based oar glorious American principles?freedom or speech, freedom of opinion, freedom of conscience, T1 '^TUM,r with ? sch"?1 ?)?tem for the diffusion of mteffigenec, sanctified by an open ?*? rule of fcith and practice, holding as an establisbed pnneiple that intelligence and virtue are essential to the sueocss of a free government. AetolPfd, That whilo we welcome to our country the victims of tyranny frote forri^n lands, and offer them a place bv our aide under the shield of our con stitution, we claim for Americans the right to govern tnei* own country; and those who do not like our government haver our hearty consent to go elsewhere I"?the pursuit of happiness. , ****?*''the fourth resolution of the meeting V ! f**00"' recommending to the President el tfcs Untied States proscription of all officers of the federal government who may have thought fit to be come members of the association of Know Knoth jags?a recommendation wbicli before its adoption, had been recognised and acted upon by the Execu tive of the United States?proposes an alarming and <Ua*7r?us infraction of the principles of self-govern Svii'.k ? ?r tbe Pr?0QPt ?nd decisive rebuke of all the free citisens of these United States, without distinction of party, sect, or creed. .1 erer7 Protestant denomination in tlie United States maintains the constitutional prin ciple of a separation of Cliureh and State?in wWeh principle many American Catholics sincerely concur while on the other hand, Uie Papal Chnrch abroad openly, and always, and everywhere maintoina the Uoctnne of obedience of the civil to the ecclesiastical authority, both in Kurope and Amerioa; the sad and ruinous effects of which, in the ons, are seen in oountless emigrants flying from its tyranny and mieerv to our own happy land, and in the other, in ,T???

We shall advocate a repeal of the laws of naturalization, or if that cannot be ac complished, then Bach a modification of thoae laws, as will prevent ftiture Immigrants from becoming citizens, short of a residence of twenty-one years, afUr taking the oath of alle giance to the United States, and of abjuration of all other powers, potentates, and princes. 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 criminals, and to send back to the ?ountries 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 inay 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 oppose the election or ap pointment of my foreign-horn citizen 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 war ; maintaining, as we do the opinion, that the native-horn citizens of the United States htve 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 bo administered to all persons elected or appointed to any office of trust, honor, or emolument, under the 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 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. Fifth. We shall maintain tho doctrine that no one of the States <5f this Union lias tho right to admit to tho enjoyment of free suffrage any person offoreign birth, who has not been J0r*t made a citizen of tho United States, according to the " uniform rule" of naturalization pre scribed by Congress, under the provisions of the constitution. Sixth. We shall oppose, now and hereafter, any " union of Church and State," no matter what 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 Bhall 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 defend the constitution as it stands, tho Union as it ex ists, and the rights 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 doctrines. Twelfth. And lastly, we shall use our utmost exertions to build up an " American party," whose maxim shall be : Amsricans shall ruls thkir CocwthvI I3T" NOTICE.?Peraons desirous of sub scribing to the Ambbicax Ob?a* will pleaae leave their rumM and residence at Win.

C., by AN ASSOCIATION OP NATIVE AMERICANS. WE hare reached sn important crisis in our po litical history. The two leading parties in our country, hitherto separated by broad lines, either of principle or oi' policy, differ now scarcely in any thing but iu name*. A Aatitmal Batik, formerly an essential point of difference between rival parties, has now no advo cates. A J'roteative Tariff for the mike of protection, which once divided parties and distracted our Na tional Councils, hag become obsolete, as a question of party policy, simply because a "revenue tar if" af fords incidental protection to American Manufactures. A modification of the details of our present tariff sys tem is all that is demanded by the most strunuous advocates of protection to American Industry. The distrbutum of the proceeds of tlio publio lands among the several States, as formerly claimed by one party, and the ofmlieation of those proceeds solely in aid of the national Treasury, as claimed by the other partr, have both yielded to a compromise of these conflicting opinions, so far, at least, a*4o sink these questions an issue* between Whigs and democrats. A plan formed of a compound of " squatter sove reignty ,w of " graduation,' and of a * surrender to the State*" in which they lie, seems likely to with draw the publio lands from tlw arena of future party contests. The improvement of harbors and rivers by congres sional aid, ou which political parties have hitherto differed at different times, has now become loss a question of principle than of local and sectional con test; and it will doubtless be adjusted by the next Congress, upon that basis of liberality and justice demanded by the spirit of the age and the true inter ests of the country. Other questions, of minor Importance, ou which, at different times, tlie two prominent parties of the country disagreod, have now, by a change of circum stances, become obsolete. What, theu, remain as is sues of any theoretical or practical importance be tween Whigs and Democrats? We know of none; and if these hitherto rival parties shall maintain their respective organisations, tney will do so for the mere suke of the spoils of potcer I But new issues nave arisen, having no reference to the party organisations 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, have battled, with alternate succcss, for politi cal supremacy. A new era is at hand?an era which will be char acterized, in the future history of these States, as the eba or favriotism I Throughout the length aud breadth of this great and glorious Union, the masses of the America* people have spontaneously and simulta neously started the inquiry?"Abb hot Aubbicaics capable or oovebkiko Tiieib Couxtbt?" This in quiry is as universal as it is natural and pertinent. The response ia being given in the thousands of.asso ciations springing up in all portions of the United States, and resting on the single basis, that the native born citizenn of thu Union have the opacity and the will to administer their men Government, to protect the right* which they have inherited, and to perpetuate the freedom aoid independence of their native land / Shall we trace the causes of this spontaneous and universal uprising of the masses of our countrymen V The evils incident to the indiscriminate immigration of foreigners into our oountry?the oonsequences of permitting such immigrants to enjov the right of suffrage?and the degrading effect or elevating for eigners to posts of honor aud trust under our gov ernment; all theu have been seen and known to onr people for years past, and yet until voir, with few exceptions, the American people have seemed to be blind to the progress of fvreigitisrn in the land. We need not, on the oooasiou of presenting this circuit)r prospectus to the country, assign the caveee for this sudden and general manifestation of the purpose of the American people to take the reins of government into their own hands; it is sufficient for the object we have now In view to date the undeniable and ob vious fact that tuchpurpaee exists. We now oome forward to present to our fcllow citiiens the mode and means of concentrating the opinions and of harmouixing the action of those who are disposed to unite in the formation of an " Amer ican party," whose purpose shall be to find a remedy for the manifold evils which have come upon us, and whiei art yearly increasing under the disastrous opera tion of our loses of naturalisation! We propose to establish, in oonfonnity with the wishes of thousands of the citizens of this District, and of a large number of our friend? in the different State*, a' daily and weekly paper, to be called THE AMERICAN ORGAN. The pnblicotion will commence on the 18th day of November daily, and on the 20th weekly. A cash capital, amply sufficient to commence and to continue the enterprise, has been subscribed and secured to be advanced by a number of wealthy and influential gentlemen; and we nre insured a dally circulation snpasaing that of anv paper now published in Washington city. The number of our weekly sub scribers will depend upon the enthusiasm of our friends in the several States, but wo have such ss 1 surances that ws cannot doubt we shall commence with many thousands : and that a year will not trans pire before our weekly list will be swelled to more than one hundred thousand. Our position at the seat of the federal government, the oentrs of onr political system, where all the rep resentatives of the States, and of the people annually assemble, and where prominent men of all parties iieriodieally sojourn for many months, is consider*! by us, and by our friends, as the most (avorable one for the publication of the oboaw or Tits Americas rabtt ; and if the most untiring devotion to the ad vocacy of the doctrines and policy of this party shall give us a claim to its sup|x>rt; we know we shall deserve, and we trust we shall reooive it. We cannot perhaps more distinctly and concisely define the basis on which tlitf American Organ is es tablished than by presenting the following extract, which we copy and adopt from an address of a former President of the Missouri Native American Associa tion, and published at St. Louis in Pebruary, 1M1, to wit: -T?* rEBPErr atiow or Ahbbica* rBBBOOH IS OCB OBJECT, AMIBUU.M ItOVd OtfK MOTTO, AWD THE AMEE ICA* TABTT OITE OOOWOMBW." Our position is thus defined. We shall advocate such mensures as will in our judgment, if carried out, perpetuate oar freedom and protect our native rights: uor shall we at anv time deviate from the path of duty as the organ of the American party, and the ad vocate of Ameiwan rights. We ahall neithy sustain nor oppose any political measures on the ground that they emanate from a Democratic or from a Whig administration ; but we ahall discuss all political questions with the most per fect freedom from favor or prejudice, toward the pre sent or any future administration. Keeping always in view the principles and purposes of the American party, we shall battle for those principles and purpo ses, while, as an independent journal, we shall ap | prove what we think is right and condemn what we think is wrong in the principles of all public men and of all political parties. The editor of the American Organ will be a Democrat of the school of Jefferson and Madiaon, progressive In his notions of publio ih??ta?a con"il,t*nt in hii advocacy of the "ght" ?> No esssy or editorial shall ever appear in the American Organ, the tendency of which would be to prejudice the rights or wound the feelings of the citi zens of any of the States. So far as the influence of this paper ahall extend, the constitutional rights of eachiand of all the States, shall be maintained. We hohi that the ir,stit*.tion of slaemy Moys arcl<u*trely to those States in which ti exists. Koch eff the States, far itself, has the sole and exclusive nght to determine whether or not slavery shall exist, vithtn it* borders. We shall therefore npoose all agitation of the fuestton of slavery, stiher tn Uongress or out of t/. _ The "American Organ" will advocate the free an. untrammeUM exercise of the rights of all questions connected with religious faith ; but it will, hv all fair and rcsi?ectfnl arguments, oppose for eign domination over American nttsene, from whatever quarter it may approach, and as well in matters eccle siastical as in' matters political. , A synopsis of the proceedings of Congress during each session will be (rom day to day presented. General and local news will be gathered snd pub lished, in order that onr patrons may have a general knowledge of passing events. The daily paper will be published every arts moos, (except Sundays,) and delivered to subscribers at 10 eents per waek, or mailed to subscribers st per year, payablo in advanoe. Tlie weekly paper will be published every Monday morning, at'$* per y?er to single suWribera, pay able in advance Clubs of ten or more will he fur nished at 91 M each per year, (if sentto any one post office.) payable in advance.

Foreign influence ia u Urecian horse to tlu) republic; we cannot he too ourtful to exclude its cntr nco.~? jtime* Madimtn. 'J here ia an initio: ative necessity for reforming the naturalization laws of the United States.?Damtl In the Kentucky State Convention, on Decem ber 15th, 1849, the body proceeded to the consid eration of the following resolution, offered by Mr. Davia, and made the special order for that day: " RttolveH, That foreigners of tho following de scriptions and classes, otiiy shall be eutitled to voto for any civil officer, or shall lie eligible to any civil office, or place of trust or profit under the Com monwealth of Kentucky: "1. Those who, at the time of the adoption oi this amended constitution, shall be naturalized cit izens of tho United States. " J. Those who, at the time of the adoption ot this amended constitution, shall have declared their purpose to become citizen* ot the United States, in conformity to the laws thereof, and who shall have become citizens. " 3 Those who, twenty-one years previously thereto, shall have declared their purpose, accord ing to tho existing provisions of tho laws of tho United States, to become citizens thereof, and who then shall be citizens of the United States. "4 Minors, who shall have migrated with their parents or parent to tho United States, tweuty-ono voars after their names, ages, and a particular de scription of their persons, shall have been entered on the records of some court of record of the SUte of Kentucky, or some other part of tho Lmted States: such foreigners having also, in every case the like qualifications of residence, and on all other points that arc required of native-born citi zens : and n properly authenticated copy of the re cord being in all eases required for the verifica tion of the facts." [After a few general remarks, Mr. Davis pro ceeded thus:] Having made these preliminary remark*, Mr. President, I state the feet that Native Americanism is not a mushroom of yesterday. It dates back in the United States several generations; and has tho weight of illustrious names to sanction it. To repel, in some degree, the imputations east upou it, that it originated in small and factious motive*, and among insignificant adventurers, I will read to the con vention a few extract*. First, from a letter ad dressed to Gov. Morris, duted W hite 1 lain*, July 24, 1778 : " Baron Steuben, I now Bud, is also wanting to quit his inspectorship, for a command iu the hue. This will bo productive of much discontent. In a word, though I think the Huron an excellent offi cer I do most devoutly w ish we had not a single fortigurr amongst us except the Marqui* dc Lafav etUs, who acts upon very different pnnciplci from thoso which govern the rest." From another, dated Philadelphia, November 17, 1794, and addressed to John Adams, the cider: "My opinion with respect to immigration is, except of useful mechanic*, and some particular description* of men and profession*, there is no need of encouragement." . A letter dated from hi# residence, Jan. 20,1790, in reply to a letter applying for office, has this pas sage: " It does not accord with the policy of this gov. eminent, to bestow offices, civil or militarv, upou foreigner*, to the exclusion of our citizens. These extracts are taken from letters written by the fether of his country, George Wa*hington ; the first from amidst thc.oonflict* of our war of in dependence, and the other whilst he was rreeidant; nud in hi* Life by Sparks, will not only they be found, but several other*, with passage* on tho same subject, of equal distinctness and force. I will read the sentiments of another on the sub ject of foreign immigration : "Civil government lielng the sole objcct of form ing societies, its administration must be conducted by common consent. Every specie* of govern ment has it* specific principles. Ours are mora peculiar'than those of any other Iu *hc "Wverer It is a composition of the freest principles of the Kuglish constitution, with others derived from nat ural right, or natural reason. To the*o notlMrig can lie more opposed than the maxims of monarchies. Yet from such we are to expj'Ct the greatest number of immigrant*. They wll bring with them the principles of the government* they leave imbibed iu theli early youth ; or, if able to throw them off. It will be in exchange for ?n *?? bounded lumtuw", JJ " one txirrmt to another. It would lie a miracle were they to stop precisely at the pojnt of Urm perate liberty. These principle*, w th their lan Euaire. tlicv will transmit to their children. "In proportion to their numbers, they will "hare with us In the legislation.
