THE MURDERED WARRIOR. The great excitement which ha8 lately prevailed throughout the whole of British India, relative to that vast combination or society of individuals, sty SJ themselves "Thugee," caused the author of the mi lowing tale tohelieve that any fresh ligh' tn'"w" ,)p the proceedings of these wholesale murderer , acceptable to the reading public ; and as e ntjc from which this tale has been compiled.re .uihenUr, and were casually obtained by the au ' fijn times and places during the last e V plinicie9t cerely hopes that any slight fail thread which, perhaps, will occasionally appear in th. thread Tf the narrative may be attributed to these causes. The complete unravelling of the mysteries of t 1* i K/Jlv <hie to that excellent nr>l>le man and aSSiiV?WiMh- Bpnlinck, Gov ernor General of British /ndia ; and when we consider the ancieiitness of th? order, (if we may so term it,) its numbers, secresy and activity before which even the more modern society of Freemason ?nks ,nt?'?!; significance, we cannot but think that jjrcat cr must be due to the individual who could thus, by usimr his official power with energy and discernment,, lay open, in a great measure, to the public, the Ins or) of this dangerous party. The atrocities committed by Rome of the mernners of this gang, are wilhont parallel in the annals o crime, either for eleverness of contrivance or boldness of execution; for, urged alike by religious fanaticism and the love of gain, and being, moreover, regularly bred to the profession, these individuals went about their cold-blooded murders in such a systematic man ner, as to cause the heroes even of an American or European murderer to thrill with horror. The follow ing narrative will give the reader a tolerable insight jnto their method of procedure. It was towards the close of a beautiful day in the autumn of the year 1819, that a solitary horseman michi have been seen crossing one of those extensive meidaunt that prevail in the south-eastern neighbor hood of the Nerbudda river. His erect and dignified carriage, and the ease and grace with which he man aged The noble animal he bestrode, would, even to an inexperienced eye, almost have stamped him as a mili tary character, had not the question been placed be yond a doubt by the brilliant reflection of the sun s rays from the polished surface of his buckler, and the steel head of his long and taper lance, which latter glittered several feet above bis head dress, the motion of his horse imparting to it the eccentric glancing of a meteor. , . The costume of the warrior was evidently Mahome tan, and fiom its richness, betokened the wearer to be of some rank. The toque and tiovvsers were of ciim son silk, richly laced with gold ; and th* sheath of the cimeter, which hung gracefully ftoin his left side, had a mounting of the precious metal, and the trap pings of the steed were of the richest description. BuTas it is time the reader should be introduced to so evidently an important personage, we will proccod at once to the task. Abdur Kaleed was a Mahratta chieftain of no mean rank, and during the late war which his-countrymen had been waging against the British, had proved him self a warrior of considerable military experience and prowess, and often had the, snrried columns of the spahis and troops of the line gazed with mingled ad miration and anxiety upon Abdur and his splendid troop of horsemen, as they wheeled io the right or left, advanced or retired, with the lapidity of lightning. ' causing the aforesaid troops to obey with rather more than their usual alacrity the order, " prooaro to receive cavalry," no time being lost either in giving or obey ing this command, as soon as the glittering cavalcade appeared in the distance. But peace had been proclaimed between ihe two belligerent powers., and the Mahratta prince having, assembled his followers merely awaited by the ratifi cation by the council of a few articles of the treaty to return to his capital But Abdur Kaleed, burning with impatience again to embrace his beloved wile, Zule ma, and her children, obtained permission of his royal master to leave the camp before the general movement of the army; and in his impatience to he gone, utterly neglected the aJvice of the prince to his favorite chief tain, viz. that he should take wi'h him sonic of his fol lowers; but mounting his charger, and scarcely heed ing the adieus of his various friends, rode alone and unattended from the camp, it being the third day of his journey that we introduced him to the reader. I he sun was rapidly sinking towards the horizon, and when we consider the dreary solitude the lider was traversing, and his distance from any human habitation, the slow pace at which he was advancing would ha ve appeared singular in the extreme. But perhaps he was thinking of his absent beloved ones, or it might be, that a pre sentiment of the dreadful fate that awaited him was weighing heavily upon his spirit; be this as it may, certain it is that he allowed the animal he rode to choose it3 own pace, and he appeared to be in a deep reverie. Abdur had advanced in this manner for the space of an hour, aud had nearly reached the extremity of the meidaun, when he was aroused by hearing a low and plaintive wailing, as of a female in distress, and upon raising his eyes, observed a figure robed in white, seated upon the ground at a short distance from where these mournful sounds appeared to isjue. Like a true warrior, Abdur was ever ready to assist the distressed; therefore turning out of the path, he rode up to the figure, and his interest was immediately more strongly excited upon finding himself gazing upon a female of the most exquisite beauty, who ap peared to be bewailing her hard fate in tones of Inttei ancruish. With great solicitude, Abdur inquired the cause of her grief, when a voice, possessing the soft est modulated and most insinuating tones that Abdur thought he had ever heard, thus replied? 'Ah! my lord! It is but a few hours since some ruffians burst into my peaceful and beautiful cottage, and having slain my husband, who would have resent ed the intrusion, seized upon our dear children and my self to bear us into slavery. But fear and hope giv ing me strength, I broke from their hold, and flying from the door, sought protection in the neighboring jungle; but thinking to meet with assistance, 1 wan dered some distance from home, and now let me en treat my lord to accompany me there with all speed, as we may yet be in time to save my Jailing babes from slavery.' Abdur hesitated not a moment, but told her fo lead the way with all expedition, that he would follow, as he feared not to encounter a half dozen such cowarolv ruffians with his single arm. Smiling her thanks through her tears, the female rose with alacrity, and glided over the ground with a rapidity that astonished Abdur, who had to exert himself, or rather his steed, to keep up with her She speedily gained the jungle, ?which here skirted the meidmin, distant not more than two or three hundied yards from the left of the path way, and threaded her way with amazing celerity among the tangled brushwood. They had proceeded for some time in eilenee, when Abdur observed that she appeared to be leading him deeper and deeper into the wilderness, and for the first time, suspicion of her intentions flashed across his mind. He was about to question her upon this point, when at that moment his horse happened to Mumble over the projecting root of a shrub, which accident occupied all his attention, and upon raising his eyes, to his astonishment, he could not perceive his fair companion in any direction, and upon his horse advancing a step or two, he found him self on a small, open glade, and in the presence of five individuals, two of whom had the appeniance of merchants, and were seated upon the ground, appa rently enjoying a repast; the remaining three seemed to be servants, and were attending to a camel, laden with merchandise, 8nd two horses were gazing at no great distance. Upon observing Abdui, the strangers rose, saluted him after the eastern manner, and introduced them selves as merchants, who had lost their way in the wil derness, and had decided upon remaining in that spot till the morning. They invited Abdur to share their repast, and proposed that when the morning dawned they should endeavor to find their course to the n< ar est town or village, as they presumed that he had also lost Ms way. It must be confessed that Abder fr:!t rather puzzled how to account for the singular adventnre that had be fallen him ; yet those persons appeared so respectable, and their words had so much the appearanee of truth, that all things considered, he thoaght that it was his wisest plan to accept their invitation. He therefore dis mounted, saluted them courteously, and was soon seated by their side, engaged in discussing his share of a re past, which his long ride rendered very acceptable.? A flask or two of excellent wine was not wanting.? All parties appeared very opportunely to forget that this beverage was strictly prohibited by the tenets of their faith. Its generous influence, however, appeared to he rapidly banishing the usual Mussulman reserve and placidity. Abdur then related to his friends his adventure with the beautiful woman ; they immediate ly gave it as their opinion that it was a good genius who had appeared to him for the purpose of conduct ing him to shelter and safety for the coming night, and being a true Mahomednn, Abder was very soon induced to be of the same opinion, more especially when he considered her singular disappearance. An hour or two had thus passed very pleasantly, when " My lord carries a beautiful ciineter," suddenly ex claimed ono of the seeming merchants, " for doubt less such a splendid sheath contains nothing less worthy of it than a puro Damascus blade 1" Abdur took it fiom his side and handed it to the stranger, who appeared anxious to examine it more closely. No sooner had be done so, however, than the folly of thus parting with his only available weapon appeared obvi ous to him. Short time, however, was allowed him to regret, as he speedily (elt liis arms rudely seized from behind, and by a sudden jerk, he was pulled back upon the ground while hi? quandom associates, the merchants, sprang to their feet, and one of them unwinding his turban, it was passed round Ahdur's neck quick as lightning they then took their stations, one at each end of tlie turban, while their assistants, who had pre viously thrown him on his back, now he'd his hands firmly grasped in theirs. Death, with all its horrors, now stared him in the face, and he felt the sickening thought that he was completely in the powet of those wretches, whose hearts had never felt the touch of pity. But nerved to desperation, as his mind reverted to his absent wife and children, he made a phrenzied effort to escape and regain his cimeter, which he per ceived was lying upon the ground a few paces distant. But the villains, alarmed at the strength he dis played, hastened to draw open their instruments of death. A livid hue quickly overspread the counte nance of their victim, followed by a convulsive shud der of the limbs, and the gallant warrior was added to list of those murdered by these wretches, who now slept the sleep of death, " I b-ir h-iploss fate unknown. *' The dead body was speedily stripped of every thing valuable, and the consecrated pickaxe, whose sound is heard not save by the initiated, was soon put in requ isition to hide the witness of their iniquity from mor tal eyes. The whole party having then collec'ed their plunder, moved rapidly and silently from this scene of darkness and death. A few years ago, a Thug having been discovered and condemned to death, confessed., among numerous other murders, his having been concerned in the one above related. BANK OF -ENGLAND.?Mr. Gilbert states that the first run in the history of banking in this country occurred' in 1667, twenty-seven years before the es t ihlishment of the Bnnk of England. The Dutch Admiral, Do Rivyter. had taken Sheerness, and had I sent his Vice Admiral, Van Ghent, up the Medway, to destiny Chatam. The greatest alarm prevailed in London, and, as we learn from Pepy's Diary, that confusion and imbecility prevailed in the councils of the (iovernrnent. The citizens ran to theirgoldsmiths or bankers to withdraw their money, various efforts were made to restore confidence. There was another extraordinary run in 1745 on the Bank of England, when the army of the Pretender was rapidly marching on the metropolis. A public meeting was held, and upwards of a thousand merchants signed a declaration expressing their readiness to take bank notes. At that critical peri< d the bank paid cash in silver, in stead of gold, to gain t.iine A still more remarkable run. from the consequences which it produced, was in '797. Fears of foreign invasion prevailed, the Gov ernment requited money, and public confidence was shaken. On Saturday, the -25ih of February, there was only ?l ,270.000 in coin and bullion temaining in the coffers of the bank. On Monday an order in council was distributed among the crowd assembled at the bank to demand gold, intimating that Government had exempted the bank from payments in cash. It was then that notes for so small a sum as ?l were authorized to be issued. The restriction of ctsli payments continued during the long and expensive war. The bank made an effort to rettnn to cash payment from 1817 to 1819, but it was not till the 1st of May, 18*21, that payments in specie legally and permanently commenced. Since that time, except for a short period at the end of 1825, Bank of England notes under ?5 have been withdrawn from circulation; and ultimately, all bank not; s under ?5 were prohibited throughout England. In the " panic" of 18-25, the run on the Bank of England was the greatest that had taken place since 1797. In April or May, 18-25, the bank had about ?10,000,000 of bullion, and by November it was reduced to ?1,300,000. During the run, gold was handed over as soon as called for, in bags of twenty five sovereigns each. But at that critical time, says a bank director, "bul lion came in, and the mint coined; they worked double tides; in sh rt, they were at work night and day; we were perpetually receiving gold from abroad, and coin from the mint." In one day the bank dis counted 4,*200 bills. On the 8th of December, 18-25, the discounts at the bank were ?7.500,000; on the 15th, they were ?11,500,000; on the -22d, ?14,500,000; and on the 29th, they wero ?15,000,000. The annual average of commercial paper under discount at the hank was ?3,946,500 in 1795; in 1800, it was ?6,401,900; from 1H05 to 1816, it varied from ?11, 000,000 to ??0.000.000; from 1817 to 1826. it varied from about ?-2.000,000 to ?0.000.000; in 1830, it was only ?919,900; and in 1831, ?1,533,600. The an nual average of loss by bad debts on discounts has been, from 1795 to 1831, both inclusive, ?31,696.? Penny Magazine. PAUPERISM.?A cause was tried before Assistant Justice Ivirtland, of the Six District Court, yesterday, in which the Commissioners of the Almshouse were plaintiffs, and one William O'Connor defendant, under the Act of the Legislature of this Stare, " to amend the Act for the relief and support of indigent persons, passed April, 1831." which imposes a penalty of $50 upon any person who shall bring, or be in any mariner conccrned in bringing, into the city any poor or in digent peison, with the intent to make such person chargeable to the city. It appeared from the evidence, that O'Conner, who is an Irishman, and a tailor by trade, who has been in this country about eighteen manths, and is in very in digent circumstances himself, went to Amboy last week and Draught up to this city five of the Pbebe's passer gers, lately arrived 'roin Ireland, three of whom were sick of the sh:p fever, and all ot them without any means of support. O'Conner being unable to take cire of them, applied to the Visiter of the Almshouse while on one of his visits, to have them removed to the Bellevue Hospital, alleging that they were unable to take care of themselves, and he himself had no m? ans. The case being clearly proved against him, | ihe Crurt gave a judgment of fifty dollars against O' ! Conner. I THE FREDERICK ROBBERY. Fr&dkrick, Mo., Aug. 24. You will recollect how early I apprized you of the [great robbery at TaMiott's hotel in this city, by the sudden and mysterious disappearance of the portman teau of General Edwards, Cashier of the bank of Leesburg, Virginia, from the bar room of the hotel, which contained 25,000 in bank notes. You also re collect that the supposed offender was arrested, and I escaped indictment by the grand jury not finding a hill, ; owing, as was alleged, to a want of sufficient evidence. Since then things here have remained pretty quiet, al though public, opinion has been almost unanimous as to i who was the real culpiit. But to the point. I have just learnt, since my arrival here, that the whole 3ub Iject is to be re-opened again, on account of new dis closures having taken place, growing out of the cir 'cumstance of Mrs. Talbott, the wife of the hotel keep er, having gone h?fore a magistrate, and given, under oath, a full detail of the robbciy, h>w it wal commit ted, and by whom! This, &? you may suppose, bat brought op the whole matter afresh, ana created a graet deal of excitement. General Edwards has been seat for to come on and enter upon a new prosecution of the affair. He is duily expected, and as soon as new developments take piece, I will apprise yon of them, should they not transpire through the newspapers here or s< me other channel. P. S. 1 have just been told that the person im pliactcd by the testimony of Mrs. T. has absconded. Correspondence of the Bult. Pat. The Magnetic Telegraph.?The New Wurtzbnrg Ga zette gives the following of the 30th of June, from Mu nich;?" Yesterday some astonishment was excited among us by seeing on the roofs of the loftiest houses in the town, several men employed in passing iron wires, which extended from the towers of the church of Noire Dame, above the Isar, as far as the Chateau d'Eau of Mount Gasteigberg, from them to the obser vatory of Bogenhausen, and hack to the tower of Notre Dame. These wires are intended to exemplify a pro ject of Professor Stetnheill. for tho conveyance of intel ligence by means of electric magnetism. It in stated that in two seconds communications might possibly be conveyed from Lisbon to St. Petersbutgh, by means of a telegraph of this description. From the Newark Daily Advertiur. AMERICAN MANUFACTURERS. From ten to fifteen thousand hales of domestic cot ton goods are said to have been bhipped at Boston for China, within a short time past. The prices are such as the sellers call fair, and such as yield a liberal profit on the present cost of manufaeturirg. Though there is much in the present a pert of our affairs to create apprehension, we are nevertheless in clined to look forward with hope rather than despon dency. Nothwithstanding the prevailing embarrass ments, the presence of the most active principles of national prosperity, whatever they may be, has no where been more clearly perceptible than in this coun try. . , We are at a period of our national existence, corre sponding with the youth of a vigorous and healthy in dividual" when the body is daily developing new re sources in all its parts, and possesses an elasticity which enables it to throw off almost every principle of evil that may be introduced into it. It is true that the buoyant spiiits which betray to excess, may he them selves the very causes of ruin, and tc these causes too, do we refer much of the distress which now exis-s : and we would rather in ordinary times allay ihan ex alt the sentiment <;f national pride which so easily runs into presumption. But when a crisis is actually upon U!5_when the hour of calamity has come, and many are perhaps too prone to despond, and even despair, it may he well to remind them ar.d ourselves that if the trial is severe, we ate yet stiong enough, with the fa vor of Providence, to go through this and many other trials of equal severity. The history of the woild offers no example, in any way parallel, of so rapid and extensive development of all the elements of national prosperity as have been witnessed in our country ; and when we contemplate the condition of the country at this very time; popu lation proceeding in the same steedy untiring progress; improvement in science and learning, education, morals and religion, the ' bject of general attention and solici tude, we cannot doubt that the causes to which we have owed our prosperity still exist. When we reflect upon the variety and excellence of the natural products?animal, vegetable and minnral? that enrich the different parts of our almost boundless teiritory?the cotton, the sugar, the tobacco, the com, the hemp, the flax, that cover our plains?the flocks and herds that feed upon our pastures?the groves and forests of oak, live oak, cedar, pine, maple, and every other useful and ornamental tree that overshadows our mountains: the wealth of really precious met ila and other fossils?the iron, lead, coal, sail, granite, mar ble, that fill with inexhaustible and incalculable treas ures their hitherto almost unexplored recesses; when we reflect upon this almost, unexampled abundance of materials, and consider at the same time the great natural advantages we possess for turning thein to ac count in our rivers and water courses?in the, intelli gence, industry and enterprise, and we may perhaps venture to add, though not without some painful quali fications, the compan.'ive temperance, patience, per severance, and general moral character of our-citizens ; above all, in that singular blessing of Providence, by the effect of which it has happened, in recompense perhaps for the rare virtues of oiii fathers, that in tilts favored region, and this alone upon the wide face of the earth, the individual is permitted to enjoy the fruit of his labor undiminished by exorbitant legal exac ! tions when we reflect upon this extraordinary com bination of favorable circumstances, we cannot doubt that our condition is, after all, eminently auspicious to the full attainment of the highest blessings of hurrnn society. QUEEN VICTORIA.?English politics.?The for eign correspondent of the New York Express gives the following sketch of the state of parties in Eng ' The first measures of Queen Victoria have been of popular character. She has received Lord Durham with delight, whilst the tories she has noticed with coldness and distance. The individuals already named to form part of her household belong to the popular portion of the whig party. They are not radicals. This could not he ex pected?hut they are any thing but tories. She has confirmed the government of Lord Mulgrave in Ire land. She has given it to be understood that justice is to be done to that portion of the united kingdom?and O'Connell is so satisfied that better days for his coun try are in reserve, that he has addressed a letter to his friend French, in which he has exhortad his supporters, and the Catholics and liberal Piotestants thronghout Ireland, to form an association, or rather hundreds of associations, to bear the name of the " Queen s Asso ciations." This is able generalship on the part of O'Connell. Whilst the tories are distrusting the queen he comes forward to place unlimited confidence in her, and by this master siroke of policy to identify the cause of the queen with that of Ireland. The queen, in her turn, proposes to visit every part of her domin ions. She is to begin with Ireland?then to proceed to Scotland?then Wales?and finally to show herself at various points in England. This will be a wise and popular proceeding, and will tend to conciliate all par ties, a/nd rally round her the democracy as well as the aristocracy. ? . . .... , The general elections in Great Britain will be the most vigorously contested of any elections which have ever taken place in that country. All that local in fl lrnce?rank?family interest?fortune?clerical in fluence mat isteiial influence?-university influence and an unbounded and most lavish expenditure of mo ney can effect or bring about, will be se effected at the elections on behalf of, and by the tones and conse.va lives The Carlton club will spend its millions if ne cessary. The aristocracy will move heaven and earth to obtain a majority in the new house of commons, or at least such an equality of suffiages as to render the march of the whig administration i.ext to impossible. Next to the delight of doing evil themselves the to ries must rejoice in the pleasure of preventing the doinw of good by others. Every place is to be con tested. No where are whigs or radicals to be allowed to go quietly over the course. All the metropolitan counties, districts, and boroughs, are to be con ested inch by inch, and London, Westminster, Middlesex, Southwark, Finsbury, Lambeth, and Marylebune, are already canvassed by the tory party. It is impossible to predict, with any thing like cer tainty, what will be the result of all their manoeuvres. The conservatives are very powerful in agrieulluia districts; they are otherwise in manufacturing towns and cities. The clergy, the aristocracy, the magistra tes?and I believe 1 must add, a large portion of the Wesleyan ministers are occupied in securing the votes of the electors for tory, or at least for conservative can didates. t , ... The queen has resolved on waiting the result ol the elections?and on not coming to any practical de cisions until she shall see on which si'le there is a majority. The duke of Wellington to secure a tory majority has* promised to settle ail the questions of Ire. land next session?but will the country believe him] It is a mere trick to gain votes aod time. On the whole, the queen i? popular?and perhaps justly so for a qneen. Yours, obediently, O. P. Q. NATIVE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION. Preamble and Constitution of the Washington City American Society. Whereas, it is an admitted fpet that all Government* are not only capable, but bound by all the principles of national preservation, to govern their affair3 by the agency of their own citizens; and we believe the re publican form of our Government to be an object of fear and dislike to the advocates of monarchy in Eu rope, and for that reaspn, if for none other, in order to preserve dur institutions pure and unpolluted, we are imperatively called upon to administer our peculiar system free of all foreign influence and interference. By admitting the strnnger indiscriminately to the ex ercise of those high attributes which constitute the rights of the native born American citizen, we weaken the attachment of the native, and gain naught but the sordid allegiance of the foreigner. The rights of the American, which he holds under the Constitution of the Revolution, and exercised hy him as the glorious prerogative of l.is birth, are calculated to stimulate to action, condense to strength, and cement in sentiment and patriotic sympathy. Basing, then, the right and duty to confederate on these high truths, we profess no other object than the promotion of our native country in all the walks of private honor, public credit, and national Independ ence, and therefore we maintain the right, in i's most extended form, of the native horn American, and lie only, to exeicise the vaiious duties incident to the ramifications of the laws, executive, legislative, or ministerial, from the highest to the lowest post ol the Government; and 10 obtain this great end, we shall advocate the entire repeal of the naturalization law by Congress. Aware that the Constitution forbids, and even if it did not. we have no wish to establish, tx post fact o laws, the action we seek with regard to the laws of naturalization is intended to act in a prospec tive character. We shall advocate equal liberty to all who were born equuili/ friC; to he so horn, constitutes, when connected with moral qualities, in our minds, the aristocracy of human nature. Acting under these generic piinciples, we further hold that, to ho a per manent people, we must be n united one, bound to gether by sympathies the result of a common political origin; and to be national, we must cherish ti^ria tive American sentiment, to the entire and radical exclusion of foreign opinions and doctrines introduced hy foreign paupers and European political adventur ers. From Kings our gallant forefathers won their liberties?the slaves of Kings shall not win them back again. Religiously entertaining these sentiments, we as solemnly believe that the day has arrived when the Americans should unite as brothers to sustain the strength and purity of th' ir political institutions. We have"reached that critical period foreseen and prophe sied by some of the clear-sighted apostles of freedom, when danger threatens from every ship that floats on the ocean to our shores, when every wind that blows wafts the ragged paupers to our cities, hearing in their own persons ami characters the elements of degradation and disorder. To prevent these evil*, we are now called upon to unite our energies. 1 o fight over this great moral revolution, the shadow of our first revolt of glory, will be the duty of the sons of those wars, and we must go into the combat determin ed to abide by our country; to preserve her honor free from contagion, and her character as a separate peo ple high and above the engraftment of monarchical despotisms. \ RTICl.ES or THE CONSTITUTION. First. We bind ourselves toco-operate, by all law ful means, with our fellow native citizens in the United States to procure a repeal of the naturalization law. , Second. We will use all proffer and reasonable ex ertions to exclude foreigners from enjoying the emolu ments or honors of office, whether under the General or State Governments. Third. That we will no: hr Id him guiltless of his country's wrong who, having the power, shall place a foreigner in office while there is a competent native willing to accept. Fourth. That we will not, in any form or manner, connect ourselves with the general or local politics of the country, nor aid, nor he the means of aiding, the cause of any politician or party whatsoever, hut will exclusively advocate, stand to, and he a separate and independent parly of native Americans, for the cause of I the country, and upon the principles as set forth in the above preamble ami these articles. Fifth. That we will not, in any manner whatever, connect ourselves, or be connected with any religious sect or denomination, leaving every creed to its own strength, and every man untrammelled in his own faith," adhering for ourselves to the sole cause of the natives, the establishment of a national character, and the perpetuity of our institutions, through the means of our own countrymen. Sixth. That this Associrlion shall be connected with and form a part of such other societies throughout the United States as may now or heieafter he estab lished on the principles of our political creed. Mr. B. K. Morsell moved to amend the foregoing hy adding other articles, which, in like manner, after some amendments, were adopted. 1st. That this Association shall ho styled the 41 Na tive American Association of t!ie United States." 2d. That the officers shall consist of a President, Vice President, Council of Three, Corresponding Secretary, Recording Secretary, a Committee On Ad dresses to consist of three members, a Treasurer, and such others as may be required under any by-laws hereafter adopted, and duties whose shall be therein defined. 3d. That all the foregoing officers shall he elected by this meeting, to serve for one year, except the Committee on Addresses, which shall be appointed by the President. 4th. That the President, or, in his absence, the Vice President, or, in the absence of both, the Corres ponding or Recording Secretary, is authoiised to con vene a'meeting of this Association whenever it may be deemed necessary. PROSPECTUS OF TUB NATIVE AMERICAN. Under the auspices of the "Native American As sociation of the United States," the subscriber pro poses to publish a paper with the above title in this city. The object of this paper will he the repeal of the Naturalization Lnw, the re-establishirient of the de clining character of the Native American, and to assert those rights guaranteed to us by the charter of the Revolution, and re-secured by the brilliant victories of the late war In stating the objects of this publication, we imply the existence of a party adverse to those interests so established; and the history of latter days, warrants the belief, that such a party is in existence, but it is one which we must meet and combat on the thresh hold of our country. The political revolution which we witness in England, and which is extending itself gradually but surely over the continent of Europe, is one indicative of the restless and daring spirit of the age A contest between the aristocratic and democratic principles, in which the ctumhling but still gigantic power of hereditaiy right, is vainly opposing itself to the right of the people, to be heard in the Legislative Councils, in proportion to their numbers: out of these two great parties, the Whigs and Conservatives Tories, has sprung another powerful body, called Radicals, equally obnoxious to both of the two chief contending parties. The conservatives fear it with a shuddering and overwhelming fear; and the whigs who go for liberal, but not destructive reform, dread this third estate in the realm, because it is composed of the violent elements of society, and disposed to go to the lengths of a revolution or a civil war; conse quently, it is the object with both whigs aridtories, to rid the country of this dangerous intermediate party, and no other suret means is offered than to ship them to our shore*: Hence the overwhelming arrival of emigrant*. It ia nonsense to talk ot their iunate lor ? of the " democratic principle}** they are nothing more nor lesn than the materials with which factious leaders in England had determined to uproot society; over throw peace and government; track the land with their bloody footsteps, and pollute every consecrated avenue, leading to the edifice of the' British laws. In future numbeiH of this paper, it will be the duty of its conductor to substantiate these charges by proofs de rived from English writers, and explain the anomaly of a civilized country deluging a land with which it is at peace, by treaty and interest, with the most terri ble means of legal and political destruction. Leaving their own land trembling with the electric elements of a great political storm, branded by the good and patriotic, destitute of principle, anxious for power as the means of wealth, regardless of the ties of civil restraint, reared in the Lazarlmuses of over taxed and discontented parishes, hated and detest ed from their youth to their maturity, these vasf hordes of modern Huns, place their feet upon our soil*, ignorant of our customs?regardless of our laws, and? careless of these great uniting qualities that bind us together a united and happy people. To counteract evil influence arising from whatever" cause, the public press has been found at all times,, since the glorious era of its discovery, au efficient agent. Its influence goes forth upon the four winds of heaven, and its high voice is heard in the four quar ters of the earth. Its eloquence rings in the congre gated councils of nations, and it speaks as a Prophet and a Preacher, to the oppressed of all climes. Its influence is felt in proportion to the cause it advo cates. All times have tested its power?all causes have acknowledged its aid, and it is now proposed, that the cause of our country and our countrymen, should be supported and made manifest through this gieat organ. The times are riA- for nur purpose. The system with Eijgland to flood this country, has proved of ad vantage to her taxed landholders?her impoverished parishes?to her government?her aristocracy, and hei king. Her ministry have determined to eradicate an evil, not by the enactment of a salutary law, but by the perpetration cf an outrage and an injury. The other nations of Europe and the Eastern World., will, and are following her example. India and China will doubtless lake the epidemic of emigration, and to se cure themselves agains'. the chances of a plague, the filthy victims of the wrath of heaven, will be shipped to our hospitable shores. To help to stay this desecrating tide, will be our high and chiefest aim, and we appeal to the well judg ing of all parlies, to aid ns in the undertaking. In this cause we recognise no minor creed. Wo look not at the mansion cf our President, with rn ambition to place any particular individual there; hut our eyes will he kept steadfast to the rock of American princi ples. We will see nothing but the banner of our na tive laud, streaming over, the extreme confines of cur country, and to our ears will come no oilier prayer, than the true American worship, around the altar of American liberty. The minor objects of the paper will be the advance ment of our own indigenous literature; and while we are willing and ready to pay the highest, tribute of merited respect to the literature of other lands, we will not do it at the expense of a native, whose works are not read, becau><: he has not the stamp of a Mur ray on his title page, or the approbation of a Black wood on the outside cover of his volume. WTe will not carry the war of our principles against the shrines of genius?they are sacred, most peculiarly so to our lunrt, and are above the changing phases of the po litical dramas. Domestic and current intelligence shall be regular ly given, in a short and agreeable manner. The proceedings of Congress will be condensed, and sketches of speeches and speakers given during the session, with lively outline of events as they trans pire at the Seat of Government. In no instance will party politics be allowed to bias the editorial pen, but men will be treated with impartiality, and opinion with the utmost and most delicate respect. HENRY J. BRENT.
