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 be read with interest by tho friends of
American principles throughout the country,
to wit:
Whereas, a public meeting of citixens of Washing
ton was held at Carusi's Saloon, on the lttth instant,
upon a call made in and approved by the Executive
organ, the proceedings of which, in the resolutions
saul to have been adopted at that meeting, and in the
speeches of certain selected orators at a subsequent
adjourned meeting, are now spread before the public
eye in the ooliftuna 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 the American
heart and necessary to the safety of the constitution
and to the peace and prosperity of our country; and
whereas, the Executive is Invoked therein to remove
from public employment such officeholders as enter
tain those prinoiples, thereby to perpetrate a ruthless
proscription of Doth Whigs aud Democrats fur an
nonest difference of opinion: therefore?
Retolced, That mere professions of loVe to the con
stitution and to civil and religious freedom, when
contradicted by actions, oannot 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 conr
trol of our government bv the subjects of a foreign
potentate well-known as the avowed enemy of our
whole American system, to whose overthrow they
are solemnly devoted.
Renolted, 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 repol all insidious attacks upon our lib
erties as well as all open assaults ; and that we view
with indignation and alarm the assertion of ^ princi
pies and purposes, on the part of the recognised sx
i>ononts of the Roman Catholic Churoh 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 distant day,
to the overthrow of the American Constitution aud
the complete establishment of despotism.
Rtmlved, That while, in the past political divisions
of the country, as Whip ana Democrats, we liave
struggled in honest conflict 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 sacred honor" not to cease our ex
ertions until our country shall be freed from the
dangers that new menace it. -
AWW, That we proclaim as the cardinal princi
ples of our politioal and moral creed, a sacred regard
tor the constitution in all its provisions, upon which
are based our glorious American principles?freedom
of speech, freedom of opinion, freedom of oonscienoe,
freedom of the press, together with a school system
for the diffusion of intelligence, sanctified by an open
Bible as the rule of faith and practice, holding as an
established principle that intelligence and virtus are
essential to the suooeas of a free government
That while we welcome to our country
the victims of tyranny from foreign lands, and offer
them a place by our side under the shield of our con
stitution, we claim for Americans the right to govern
their own country; and these who do not like our
government have our hearty consent to go elsewhere
i-i the pursuit of happiness.
A'moW, That the fourth resolution of the meeting
at Cerusi's Saloon, recommending to the President oi
the United States proscription of all officers of the
federal government who may have thought flt to be
come members of the sssocistion ef Know K no th
ings s recommendstion whieh, before its adoption,
had been recognised and acted upon by the Execu
tive ef the United States -proposes an alarming and
daagvruu* infraction of the prtaciplea of self-govern
ment, aud calls for the prompt aud decisive rebuke
of all the free citiiens of these United States, without
distinction of party, sect, or creed.
RutnlvtJ. Tnst every Protestant denomination hi
the United States maintains the constitutional prin
ciple of a separation of Church and State?in which
principle many American Catholics si Merely concur,
while on the other baud, the Papal Church abroad
openlv, and always, and everywhere maintains the
doctrine of obedience of the civil to the ecclesiastical
authority, both in Europe and America; the sad and
ruinaus effects of which, in the one, are seen in
countless emigrants flying from its tyranny and
misery to our own happy land, and in the other, in
the ignoranoe and poverty of the masses, in the
wealth and vice* of fee darn, and in the ceaseless
insurrections, maseeerss, and proverbial instability
of oar .Southern sister Kennhbca.
R?nlood, That upon these principles we appeal
from the opinions, whose proclamation has caused
this meeting, to the people of the United Htatea;
and, although ws might infer they are an exponent
of executive feelinga, from the official positions of
those who controlled the proceedings, vet we will still
hope that the President, who alone has the power
will srrest the proscription already begun of laithfiil
office-holders, both Democrats and Whigs, for daring
to entertain American and lYotestant sentiments,
and will reject the mercenary (nufgestion urged upon
him by the fourth resolution of the meeting last woek,
as a covert scheme to gratify the appetite of office
seekers st the expense ef many who nealousty and
ofllaimtly aided in his elevation to power, and whose
removal under existing circumstances will fix so in
delible stain upon him as a man and as the President
of tbe United States.
Rtmlwxi. That having seen the denunciations that
almost dailv issue from oertain presses sgainst the
" fusioniste of the North, who are denounced as ab
sorbed In "the traitorous factions" which distract
those States, by Which they are one alter another be
ing placed in opposition to the adminiateatiea, we
were astonished to hear the pressing invitiou in the
seoond resolution of our opponents to men of all po
litioal opinions, without rpgard to their "political
antecedents," to fbnn s "ftision" with them m their
future action -an invitation broad enough to include
Garrison, Abby Kelly, and Fred. Douglas, besides
their coadjutors in the two houses of Congress.
/Itmhui Thst we, too, sppeal to all Ameneana
who love the Union, which "must be preserved, and
the constitution, which established snd maintains it,
and the rights of the States which oompose H, snd
especially to the religions, the mors I, snd the order

snd right of American-born citiiens to govern their
own country: therefore
Re*olr*A, Thst we will not vote ftrr nor assist in
elevating foreigners by birth to offices of trust, emol
ument, or honor under our government; nor will ws
vote lor or sssist in slevstiug to sueh offices any
American-born citiiens who recognise or hold them
selves under any allegiance whatever te any foreign
prinoe, potentate, power, or authonty.

country, believing, as we do, that K is high time tbe
interested and unscrupulous nwna^oifiie*
should be checked, and the government be placed in
the hands of men acquainted with it* character and
spirit, and who duly value it* oountlesa hleaaiiM^.
I Tn^ believe in the competency, a?ility,
nd nirht of American born citizen* to ihmr
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, as will prevent 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 otlier 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
countries 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 Presfdent of the United States to
demand from any government, which may
send hither such classes of its subjects, imme
diate and ample satisfaction for tuck (Mirage,
and a proper indemnity against the repetition
Third. We shall oppose the election or ap
pointment of any foreign-bom citisen 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 tho 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 Ohited
States, 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 effectually exclude from such
offices all persons, who shall not directly and
explicitly recognise the obligations and bind
ing force of tho 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 becnjtfrst
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 Stats," 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 oppoeo 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 rightftilly exercise any su
pervision or control, at any time, in any place,
or in any flrmn.
Ninth. Wo shall oppose aP "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
Tenth. We shall maintain and defend the
constitution as it stands, the Union as ft ex
ists, and the rights of the Slates, without di
minution as guaranteed thereby t opposing at
all times, and to the extent of oqr aMIHy and
influence, all who may assail them, or either of
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; bat we shall opposethose who
oppose our doctrines, snd sustain thoae who
sustain mir doctrines.
Twelfth. And lastly, we shall use our utmost
exertions to bufld up an "American pmrty,"
whose maxim shall be:

Shall we trace the cause* of this spontaneous and
universal uprising of the masses of our oountrymen ?

of foreigners into our country?the consequences at
permitting such immigraiita to enjoy the right of
suffrage?aud the degrading effect of elevating for

people for years pnst, and yet vntil now, with few

The War in K?roje-WI?t <ie?er?l V, ebb
Gen. James Watson Webb returned from Europe
in the Pacific, and published his view* 011 tho pre
sent aspect mid llio future proupoct of the war iu
Europe, in the Courier aud Enquirer, an follows :
Tlio press of Englaud and Franco, and indeed
public opinion in txith countries, is at variance in
regard to the course of events during the next four
months. The Times declares the campaign at en
end, aud that the proceedings of the allies will bo
purely <l?fcii*ivc uutil spring; and for ten da\s
preceding the sailing of the Pacific, Ita leaders
would induce the world to believe that KugWnd
was on the very eve of destruction. Such piteous
appeals for reinforcements?such abject cowardice
such degrading admissions of weakness and na
tional iiubocibility, never disgraced an English
press. And all this, because the British Cabinet
(lo not make it ita organ, and the Duke of Nowcne
tie choo*ea to send hia official despatches to the
Morning Chronicle instead of the Thunderer!
There mav well be a difl'orcnco of opinion on both
sides of the water in regard to the next movements in
the Crimea; and we therefore venture to give our
readers some light upon the subject on which they
muy place the most implicit confidence, in defiance
of what the Times, in it* ignorance and spleen, de
clares to be the case. Both Lord Raglan aud Gen
oral Canrobert have reported to thuir respectivo
governments, that the allies are now in a position to
make a breach intho walls of Sebastopol In forty
eight hours, whenever they are ready to make the
assault! But to make the assault with their force
on the sixth of November was Impossible, bccauso
to do so, would compel them so to weaken their
lines in the rear, that tho enemy could take pos
session of them, and thus place thciu between two
fires. It was therefore determined as a matter of
necessity to defer all offensive operations uutil tho
arrival of the ncccasary reinforcements. We speak
I advisedly when wc sav that it was tho opinion ot
both the French and the English government* that
the allied army before Sevastopol, would be at
least 100,000 strong by the 20th of December;
and that on the arrival of the necessary reinforce
incuts anterior to that time, the work of breaching
the walls of Sebastopol would commence, and the
town Itself bo carried by storm hi throe days!
Such, we say, was the oxpeotl#?on of the two gov
ernments and of their two generals two weeks ago,
and wo firmly believe that Sebastopol will fall be
fore the first of January.
What next 1 Will it be occupied f Not for an
hour longer than is absolutely necessary to blow
up and destroy the entire works of the city, tho
fleet, and the dock yards. This done, tho allied
armv will proceed to the" north side, and take and
destroy the heavy works which can only be ap
proached from that quarter. That another great
battle may bo fought is quite possible; but the
battle of Inkermann, united to the impossibility ot
tho Emperor feeding a large army in the Crimea at
this season, after tho fall of Sebastopol, will, wo
think, render it unnecessary. Ho poured troops
into the Crimea, regardless of the mode of feeding
them, believing that he could "drive the allies into
the sea;" failing in this, it remains to be seen how
he is to feed them. Most probably this is the last
consideration that will give hhn trouble, as he has
plenty of men, and cares little for their lives.
If it be true that General Liprandi has retreated
to Uak*hi-Serai, wlilcli is thirty miles north of his
late position, and tirrnty tnftci* north of Sebtsto
pol J It is evident that the Russians will give the
| allies but little more trouble at present. The los-i
of the battlo of lukennaiui aealrd the f ate of the
Crimea. It demonstrated the invincibility of the
allied army fighting side bAjilc aftor centuries of
hostility ; and, although flfea for, the English ar
mv, with less than half the strength of the French,
has been compelled to do nearly all the fighting,
incurred the greatest exposure, and won neoily all
the glory of the campaign, there can be no rea
sonable doubt that iu an emergency the Trench
will nobly and gallantly do their duty.
The English public are getting somewhat restive
uuder the operation of Uie present alliance with
Franco, and it admits ot do doubt but that alliance
is destined to bo of much shorter duration than the
press affect* to believe. John Dull is made to stand
the brunt of the fight, and to receive all the liard
blows, while France claims equal honor and credit
from battles in which the best blood of England is
made to flow like water, while hor ally Is content
with-expoaiiig to the enemy a few of her African
guerillas. The English press feel with the people
on this subject; but they also feel, that tho position
of European affairs, every sacriflcc of feeling must
' be tamely submitted to, rather than Incur the risk
i of a brnsb with France.
Since the death of Louis Napoleon, or the wily
diplomacy of Russia, succeeded in breaking ut> that
alliance, tho position of England would be fea'ftil
! in tho extreme ; and then all claasea in that coun
try would fuel the wisdom of those among her
i statesmen who iiow openly proclaim, thai the most
necessary as well as the most natural policy of
England, is lo build np tho closest possible alii
?nee with the United States. The commercial
prosperity of the two countries and the preserva
tion of constitutional liberty, based as it is tipon the
Protestant religion, alike demand that there should
always exist the very best understanding between
us and our Anglo-Saxou cousins. To Insure thin,
nothing but time and forbearance are ufceasarv.
At this roomsnt every outstanding question be
tween the two countries has been amicably settle*I
except the wicked affair at Greytown, and the
non-compliance on the part of England, with the,
plain and simple requirements of tho Clayton and
Bulwer treaty.
In the Greytown ontrare, tvery honest man ot
all parties in the United States, admits our error,
snd is ready to make reparation and condemn our
gipverment. And in regard to the question of tho
treaty of I860, it Is equally manifest to every Intel
ligent person In our country, and to the enlightened
statesmen of Europe, that England has not the
shadow of a shade of right whence to detend her
position. Time, therefore, U certain to remove
these two remaining questions of difference be
tween ns; sod then, we may look forward to a
period of |>eaoe and prosperity for the whole woi Id,
secured by the closest political alliance between
tho two great commercial nations of the earth,
whose prosperity In alAts fcvniM on constitutional
freedom, based upon the great principles of Pro
testantism, which secure to all the blessing- of civil
and religious lilwrty.
