First. Wo 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 yearn, after taking the oath of alle giance to the United States, and of objuration 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 countries from which they come, all such for eigners of these classes as may, in violation of such law, hereafter rcach 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 sat inaction for such outrage, and a proper indemnity against the repetition thereof. Third. We shall oppose the election or ap pointment of any foreign-born 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-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 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 the Constitution of the United States, as paramount to all obligations of adhe sion or allegiance to any foreign prince, power, (>otentate, or authority whatever, under any and all circumstances. ? Fifth, 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 first made a citizen of the United States, according to the " uniform rule" of naturalisation pre scribed by Congress, under the provtoons of the constitution. > Sixth. We shall oppose, now and heroaAw, any 44 union of Ghmtck ami State," nojpttcr what .plans of religionists shall seek dforing 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 sb a cardinal maxim, thai religion* 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 whieh the constitution is to be set at nought, violated, or disregarded, whether by politicians, by religionists, or by the adherehts or followers of either, or bf any other class of persons. Tenth. We shall maintain and defend the constitution as it stands, the Union as it ex ists, and the rights of the States, without di minntion as guaranteed thereby: ofiposing 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 w? shall oppose those who oppose our doctrines, and sustain those who sustain our doctrinoa Tieelfth. And lastly, we shall use our utmost exertions to build up an " American party,1 whose maxim shall be: Amwucawb shall wilk thwk Cotnmrrf M. T. PARKER, House and ftiffn Painter and Oln*?or.

J&etoM, That mere protessions of love to the con stitution and to civil end religious freedom, when oontradioted by actions, cannot deceive the sensible and vigilant guardians of American liberty, whose apprehensions have been excited at beholding tho strides that haw been made towsrd a oomplete con trol of our government by the subject* of a foreign potentate well-known as the avowed enemy of our whole American system, to whose overthrow they are solemnly devoted.

Be it, thartfare, mooted by the General A* tembly, That QO nan shall be ooropellcd to fre quent or support any nigious worship, place, or ministry whatsoever, nor wall he be enforced, re strained, molested, or hardened In hlsbody or goods, nor shall he otherwise suffer on account of his religious opinions or belief, but that ail men shall be free to profess, and by argument to maintain, their opin ions in matters of religion, and that the santc shall in no wise diminish, enlarge, or affcct their civil capacities. And though we well know this Assembly, elected by the people for the ordinary purpoees of legis lation only, have no power to restrain the acta of succeeding assemblies, constituted with powers equal to our own: and that, therefore, to declare this act Irrevocable would be of no effect in law; yet, we are free to declare, and do declare, that the rights hereby assorted are of the natural rights of mankind, and that if any act shall be hereafter passed to repeal the present, or to narrow its ope rations, such an Met will be an infringement of natural right.

A Daily and Weekly Papvr, j>ubk#U#l in W ttekwy AN ASSOCIATION^0?' NATi/k AMERICANS. WK have reached an important crisis in our po litical history. Tlut two leadiug parties iu our country, hitherto separated by broad lines, either of lirinciple or of policy, difter now scarcely in any thing but in mmtm. A National Bank, formerly au essential point ot au fereuce between rival parties, has now no advocates. A ProUctivs Tariff for the sake of protection, which once divided parties and distracted our National Coun cils, has become obsolete, as a question of party policy. simply because a " revenue tariff" affords incidental protection to American Manufactures. A modifica tion of the details of our present tariff system is all that is demanded by the most strenuous advocates of protection to American Industry, The distribution of the prooeeds of the public lands among the several States, as formerly claimed by one party, aud the application of those proceeds solely in aid of the national Treasury, as claimed bv the other party, have both yielded to a compromise or these con flicting opinions, so far, at least, as 4o sink these ques tions as issues betweon Whigs and Dcmog-ats. A plan formed of a compound of "squatter sovereignty, of " graduation," and of a*" surrender to the States in whioh they lie, Menu llkoly to withdraw the publio lands from the arena of future party contests. The unpreteimut of harbor* and riven by congres sional aid, on whicli political parties have hitherto differed at different times, has now become less a oues tion of principle than of local and seotlonal contest; and it will doubtless be adjusted by the uext 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, on which, at different times, the two prominent parties of the ooun try disagreed, have no w, by a change of circumstances, become obsolete. What, then, remain as issues, of uny theoretical or practical importance bctwwnWnifjs s and Democrats? Welraow of none; and if these hitherto rival parties shall maintain their respective organizations, they will do so for the mere sakooi the spoils of power t ... , , ? But uew isauos have arisen, having no reference to tlie party organisations of Whigs and Domocruto issues which are vastly important in their bearing upon the fUture welfare ot the country?and which issues must, in their discussion, progress, and termi nation, annihilate these two parties, whioh, for years past, have battled, with alternate success, for political supremacy. ..., , A new era is at hand?an era which will be char acterized, in the future history of these States, as the bra or patriotism ! Throughout the length and breadth of this great and glorious Union, the masses of the American ]>eople have spontaneously and sunulta neously started wie inquiry?" Am kot*m5?'.ca.''8 CAPABLB or OOVXIUnKO THKIR COUSMT I This IB ouiry ia as universal as it ia natural and nertmcut. Th? r??on? is being given in the thousands of Mao ciutions sorinainfr up in all portions of tho United "States, ana resting on the single basis, that the native born euiz*M of this Union have the capacity and the u iU to administer their oum fjovernmeni, to protect the tights which they have inherited, and to perpetual* the freedom and independence <>f their native land I Shall we trace the causes of this spontaneous and universal uprising of the masses of our countrymen T The evils incident to the indiscriminate immigration of foreigners into our oeuutry?the confluences ot permitting such immigrants to enjoy the right of suffrage?and the degrading effbet of elevating for eigners to posts of honor and trust under our gov ernment: all these have been seen and known to our people for years past, and yet until note, with tew I exceptions, the American people have seemed to be | blina to the progress of foreignism in the laud. Wo , need not, on the occasion of presenting this circular , proepectut to the oountry, assign the cajuee for thu | sudden and general manifestation of the purpose of the American jieople to take the reina of govern ment Into their own bauds; It in sufficient for the object we have now in view to state the undeniable and obvious fast that such purpose exlit*. We now come forward to present to our fellow dtianns the mode and means of concentrating the Minkma and of harmonizing the action of those who an disponed to unite in the formation of an " Amer ican amtu," wbons purpose shall be to find a retn<dy for the mutti/old evils which hu-ve corns up"fi w, and ^^areymrly i,icrt*?v>g usuler the duaetnms ope Iration of our laws of naturaluation t We propose to establish, in conformity with the wishes of thousands of the citlxcns of this District, and of a large number of oor friends in tho different States, a daily and weekly paper, to be called THE AMERICAN ORGAN. t , , The publication will commenoe on tha 13th day of November daily, and on tba 90th weekly. A ea*h capital, amply su/ftcisiit to commence and to continue the enterprise haa been subscribed and secured to be advanced by a number of weolthy and influential geutlemen; and we are insured a daily circulation surpassing that of any paper now pub lished in Washington city. The number of oot weekly subscribers will depend upon the enthusiasm , of our frianda in the several Slates, but we have such ussuranoes that we cannot doubt we shall oouuneuoe with rno?jI thousands : and that a vest will not trans & before our weekly lint will be swelled to more one hundred thousand. Our position at the seat of the federal government, the centre of our political system, where all the rep resentatives of the Steles, and of the people annually assemble, and where prominent men of ail parties periodical It sojourn for many months, is considered by us, and by our frianda, as the most favorable one for the publication of the oboak or tb? Amseicam rArrr: and if the roost untiring devotion to the ad vocacy of the doctrines and policy of this party shall give us a claim to its support, we know wo shall de serve, and we trust we snail receive it. We cannot perhaps more distinctly and concisely define the basis on whioh the America* Organ is es tablished than by presenting the following extract, which ws oopy anil adopt from an address of a former President of the Ifusouri Katies American dissocia tion, and published at St. Louis In February, 1841, to | w!ti "Th? rnnrrroATtBi* or Amsbjca* rntsno* I* or* object, Amsricax bicihts oca motto, akd the AnzB I ICAK PA KIT on a cooxonaw." Our position is thus defined. We shall advocate mch measure* as will in onr judgment, if carried out, pcrpetnate our freedom and protect oor native righta; nor shall ws atanrtime deviate from -the path ol duty an the organ of the American party, and the ad vocate of American rights. , We shall neither sustain nor oppose any political measures on the ground that they emanate froma Democratic or from a Whig administration ; but we shall discuss all political questions with the most perfect frredom from favor or prejudice, toward the present or any ftitnre administration. Keepuig al ways In vww the principles and pnrposes of the American party, we shall battle for tliose principles aud purposes, while as an independent journal, we shallapprnvc what we think is right anil condemn what *e think Is wrong In the principles of all public men and of all political parties. The editor of the Atnerienn Organ will be a Democrat of the school of Jeftonmi and Madison, progresaivs in his notions or public policy, yet consistent in his advocacy of the rights of the States. , No easay or editorial shall ever anpeor in the American Organ, the tendency of which would be to prejudice tho rights or wound the feelings of the citi zens of any of the States. So far as the influence <* this paper shall extend, the constitutional rights of each, and of all the States, shall be maintained. We hold that tks inhibition of slavery beUmge excbueiaely to Hose Stales in which it agists. Koch of the .States, for itself, has ths sole and -xclueivs right to detertmne whether or not slavery shall exiet within its borders. We shall therefore oppose all agitotion of ths question of slavery, either in frmgress or out of it. The " American Organ" will advocate the free and vntraemnslled exercise of the rights of cmsmsnce. on all questions connected with religuots faith ; but ?t will, by nil fair and respectful arguments, oppose for moa domieuition over American oUmseis, 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 semi on will be from day to day presented. Oenaral and local news will be gathered and pub lished, in order that onr patrona may have a general knowledge of passing events. The daily paper will be published every afternoon, (except Sundays,) and delivered to subscribers at 10 cents per week, or mailed to subscribers at #JS per year, payable in advance. ..... ., . The wnekly paper will be published every Monday morning, at %i per year to single subscribers, pay able in advanee. (iJuha of ten or more will be far mahed at $1 6n each per year, (if sent to any one post offlea,) payable to advance. Advertising is solioitod, at the usual rates; and, as the Organ will have an extensive cumulation, it will afford the most desirable medium In this respect.

AVER'S PILW. For all tka purposes ?< a Faaaily Physic. There has long existed a pub lic demand for an effective Pur . gative Pill which oould be relied 'on as sore and perfectly safe in its operation. This luts been pre Vpared to meet that demand, and i.i i i. . "an extensive trial of its virtues has conclusively shown with whatsuocess it accom plishes the purpose designed. It is easy to make a phvsical I'ill, but not so easy to make the best of all Pills?oue which should have none of the objections, but all the advantages of every other. This has beeu attempted here, and with what suooess we would re spectfully submit to the public decision. It has been unfortunate for the patient hitherto that almost every purgative medicine is acrimonious and irritating to the bowels This is not. Many of them produoe so much griping pain and revnlslon in the srstem as to I more than oounterbulenoe-thsgoodto be derived from them. These Pills produoe no irritation or pain, un less it arises from a previously existing obstruction or derangement in the bowels. Being purely vege table, no harm can arise from their use in any auau titv ? but it is better that suy medicine should bo taken judiciously. Minute directions for their use in the several diseases to which they are applicable are given on the box. Among the complaints which hare been speedily cured by them we marmontion Liver Complaint, in Its various forms of Jsundice, Indigestion, Languor, and Loss of Apatite, Lis ties* nessfIrritability, Bilious Headache, Billons Fever, Fever and Ague, pain in the Side and Loins, for in truth, all these are but the oonsequence of diseased action of the lirer. As an aperient, they afford prompt | and sure relief in Costireness, ill*, OoUc, Dysentery, Humors, Bcrolula, and Scurry.

They should be Arscly taken in the spring of the year, to purify the blood and prepare the srstem for the ehange of seasons. An occasional dose stimulates the stomach into healthy action, and reatorea the appetite and vigor. They purify tbo blood, and, by their stimulant action on the drenU tory system, "renovate the strength of the body, and restore the wasted or diseased energies of the whole organism. Hence an occasional doae is odvantegwwii ovtn though no aerious derangement exists; but un necessary dosing should never be carried too far, as every purgative medicine red noes the strngtb, when taken to exoess. The thousand oasea in which a physic is required cannot be enumerated here, but they suggest themselres to the reason of erery bodj ; and it Is Mnfidently believed this ptll willI anawsr a better purnuM titan anything which has hitherto been available tomankind. When their virtues are cmcw known the pnbllc will no longer doubt what remedy to etnplor when in need of a cathartic modicine. Being sugar-wrapped they are pleasant totake, and being purely vegetable, no harm can arise from their use in anv quantity. ' n For minute directions see the *?n*^"5hc1Dox: Prepared bv Dr. JAM'EH C.
