With reference to their opinions upon the
lie peal of the Naturalization Laws, iudivid-j Hals may generally be divided into three clas hes. The avowed advocates of the measure, its avowed opponents, and those who rank themselves on neither side. That the active members of the Repal Party far outnumber, bnd surpass in effective influence, their avow ed and active opponent*, is unquestioned, or, at least, unquestionable. The third, or neutral* and lor the present indifferent paity, outnumber both. , Now let us take a reasonable view of the changes which in the natural course of things may be expected to occur in the relative posi tion of iliese three classes. The effective superiority of the Repeal Party over their professed enemies, is to an incalculable de gree enhanced by the fact, that lh*y aie em bodied and organized. Our enemies act sep arately and without organization; and we venture to predict that they will emtinue ao to do. VVe dare them to organize, to make the true issue with us. We know, however, that they will not. The monent that it were done, would be the monent of our success. Now apart from the consideration of the merits of our cause, admitting lor the time, tne arguments for and against it to be equally balanced ; what we ask is the result that may reasonably be interred from our position and efforts, and those of our opponents. Our numbers, we admit, are not now sufficiently numerous, though far surpassing those of our open and avowed opponents, to effect a Re peal of the Naturalization Laws through the Ballot Box. To accomplish this, the Urge class of those now neutral or indifferent must be wrought upon, and from their tanks acces sions to ours must be drawn. Upon this class, how much more effective must be our efforts, than those of our opponents. We are already a large and certainly highly res pectable body, well organized, with Associa tions and Journals devoted to our principles springing up North, East and West, and above all, composed of Native American citt-| zensl They, on the contrary, comparative- ] ly few in numbers, without organization, the few papers that support them being alien in their entire spirit, and their ranks filled with foreigners and ephemeral demagogues! Be tween two such parties contending for the mastery, does it require a prophet's vision to foresee the result ? And why'is it that so many still stand neutral and hesitate to assume a decided po sition? Daily we hear them saying, "we admit the force of your arguments, we are aware of dangereus aggressions constantly made by foreign influence. But wait?wait for a few short months, and then we will join you heart and hand, and ensure your triumph." Why then should we be discour aged? Discouraged! away with the pusillani mous throughl! Clearv do we see the com ing period, and that not distant, when the RlKI'EAt. OK THE NaTUUALIZTION IjAW8 Will he one of the leading questions at the ballot box and on the floor of Congress. Let the question be made, the issue joined, and we feel no apprehension ot the result. New Orients Native American. The. settlement of Texas by emigration from the United States, und the settlement of the Vatey of the Mississippi by immigrants from Europe. The United States have been sending out from among their hardiest, their best, and most intelligent population, the materials that have formed a new and gallant Republic on a teritory wrested from Mexican despotism. By whom have the places, once occupied by these bold advanturers of whom we have been deprived?by whom have their places been filled! By the subjects of European mon archs. What a subject for serious and won doing contemplation to the reflecting, fore seeing mind! Will the eagle of American Liberty be forced to withdraw his outstretch ed wing from above i he starry constellation that now glitters on the banner of the Ameri can Union, and wing his free flight still tar ther Westward, until he finds a more con genrial resting place upon the "single star" of Texian Independence??New Orleans Native America n. Why does not European immigration direct its course to the boundless and fertile territories of our sister Republic o! I exas? The reason is obvious. The perils of a new settlement have to be there encountered; Mexican hostility on the one side, and Indian depredations on the other, must be first met and quelled by the descendant of those dauntless spirits who originally effected the subjugation and civilization ol this western continent. When this shall have been ac-1 complished. and Texas shall present the same peaceful security that the United States now do?when the bones of her gallant sons have bleached her wild forests and their blood fertilized her broad prairies, then doubt less will European immigration divide with them also its many blessings and favors. New Orleans Native American. Communicated to the Rational Intelligence)'. Ghntlkmkn : While so frequent men tion is nt present made of a " wonderful machine just invented, in Presburg', by Josbph Vox Klegkl, fqr composing and distributing types," I would call attention to the following article, which appeared in the Christian Observer, (a periodical printed in London, reprinted in New York.) under the head of intelligence from the United States, Juno L823, vol. 23, page 386: "Dr. W. Church, of Boston hns projected a printing apparatus on a new construction. This invention is two-fold : lirst, to print constantly Irom new types by a simplification of the pro cess of re casting them ; which he consid ers will be a much more easy, rapid, and accurate operation than tbatofdistributing them alter they have been used. The types when re-cast are delivered by mach inery in their proper compartments with unerring exactness. The second part of the invention respects the compositon, which is to lie by means of keys, like those of a piauo forte, by-touching which the tvpes are taken up and fixed in their places as rapidly as the fingers can move in playing the notes in music. Dr. Church, who is in England constructing his apparatus, calculates that the saving ol lime and expense l>y his invention will bj very considerable." JUS'l'lTlA. National gvllerv of mavufac TURKS, fcc. Paticnt Office, November 20, 1840. Notice is given that the Hall in the new Patent OiKce for the exhibition of manufac tures is now completed. The Hall is spa cious, being 273 feet long, 63 feet wide, 30 feet high, and lire-proof. Agents, whose names are annexed, will receive and f rward, free of expense, arti cles which may be deposited with them. These articles will be classified and arranged for exhibition, and the name and address of the maufacturer (with the prices when des ired) will be carefully aflixed. Few.it is pre sumed, will neglect to improve the oppor tunity now presented of contributing their choicest specimens to the National Gallery of American Manufactures, where thousands who visit the seat of Government will wit ness with pleasure the progress of the arts in these United States. If fairs in limited sections of our country have excited interest, what must be the at tractions of a national exhibition enriched by daily additions. The agriculturist may be gratified to learn that commodious rooms are provided for the exhibition of agricultural implements, and, also, for the reception of seeds for exhibition or distribution. The Commissioner of Patents being au thorized to collect agricultural statistics, avails himself of this opportunity to solicit information of the condition and character of crops in the several sections of the country. These data will aid him in presenting, with his annexed report, the aggregate amount of products of the soil, and it is hoped that the Public may be guarded in some measure from the evils of monopoly, by showing how the scarcity in one portion of the land may be supplied from the surplus in another.

The softest whisper flies as last as the loudest thunder; and no sound produced by artificial means can be beard over 200 miles. In the war between En gland and Holland, in 1672, the guns were beard in those parts of Wales judged to be nearly 200 miles distant from the scene of action ; but sounds arising from volcanoes have been heard at a much greater distance. Light goes about 13 millions of miles in one minute. A strong wind flies 20 feet in a second. If the distance between us and a cannon when fired be one mile, we hear the report 24 seconds after we see the flash. The nearest of the fixed stars is 5000 times more distant from us than the sun, its distance then must be 77, 400,000,000 miles. Were a cannon fired from a star, it would require 5,400,000 years for the report to reach us. The hardest metals, on which common fires, and even glass house furnaces, coud pro duce no ellect, have been melted in a few seconds by means of lenses or mirrors called bnrniriq- glasses. M. Villet, a na tive of France, about 100 years silica, con structed a mirror 3 ft. II inches in diam eter and 3 ft. 2 inches focal distance, which was so powerful that it. melted cop per ore in 8 seconds, and iron ore 24 se conds, a fish's tooth in 32 seconds, cast iron in 16 seconds, a silver six pence in 7 seconds, and tin in 3 seconds. M. Villet's mirror condensed the sun's rays 17,257 times, a degree of heat which is about 190 times greater than common fire. Mr. Parker of London constructed a lens ) feet in diameter, focus 6 feet 8 in ches, weighing 112 pounds. It melted 20 grains of gold in 4 seconds, and 10 grains of platina in 3 seconds. The broa der the lens and shorter the focal dist ance, the*more intense is the heat produced by such instruments. A globular decan ter of water is a powerful burning glass, and furniture of houses have taken fire by incautiously leaving it exposed to the sun's rays.?Lynceus. A White Man Sold.?South Carolina pa pers give the partculars of the public sale of a white man, n>med Renben Bradley, which recently took place at Camden, conformbly to a law of the state. His offence was an ugly one,- and, not being able to enter into recognizance for his misdeeds, he was con sequently knocked off, under the hammer, to the highest bidder. His wife bought him for one dollar ! cheap as dirt, but we are ra ther disposed to think she had a monstrous bad bargain at that. Independent O.O. Fellows.?We cheerful ly recommend this institution to our associates in life, men who from necessity, cannot for years lay up any tiling fer rent day. The Lodges in Baltimore have expended rising of #11,000, in one year, in charities to the siok widows and children, and in England some ?133,000. You are all liable tosickness, and in this order you will find a mother and a sister, you will find too a hand ready to smooth the ruffled pillow, to minister medi cines and nourishment; and a spirit to ren der light and cheeritil the sick room, and to ad I the means to keep want and misery without. The Quarter Mister General of the State of Illinois, has joined the Mormo:i?. Description.?The following is a descrip tion of Joiies, llie murderer, who deliberate ly shot some time since, in Iowa Teri^tory, a man named McArdle. A. reward of $100 is offered for his apprehension. His appeara-ice is so peculiar that he can hardly avoid detection, lie is about 45 years of age, 6 feet 4 inches high, weighing about 180 lbs.; has dark hair, sharp visage, with several moles about his face, with long coarse hair growing out of them?a very ugly man, with a bad countenance. Had on, when he left, a jeans frock coat and an old fur cap. Hh was generaly disliked by the neighborhood on account of his overbearing and quarrelsome disposition. The Tallahassee Floridian says that Florida will probably be admitted into the Union as a Slate during the next session of Congress. k The Rathbun Fuiid-i.?The Chancellor of New York has directed the Assignees of the estate of B. Rathbun, the forger, to pay over to the New York creditors the amount now deposi'ed ($70,000) in the Commercial Bank of Buffalo, being something like 40 per cent on the original claim. Those who outlive their income by splendor, in dress, or equipage, are well said to resemble a town on fire, which shines by that which destroys it. Job was a printer and his comforters were tion paying subscribers, says some paper. The Caspian Sea.?Its area is 150.000 square miles. It is a remarkable fact, that the surface of this lake is three hun dred feet below tho level of the ocean. Why are politicans, on the day of elec tions like beans ? Because they hung about the polls. Definition of Cherub.?A lady (married o( course) was once troubled with a squalling brat, whom she always addres sed as ''my chkkub.?Upon being asked why she gave it that appellation, she re plied?"Because it is derived from cheru bim, and the Bible says, the cherubims continually do cry."

It is stated in the Canadian papers that the British government has direct?d a sur vey and report of the condition of all the harbors on Lake Erie in the Providence, and the roads leading to them, with the view to their improvement. The Late Easterly Storm, it is said, has thrown up hundreds of loads of sea weed and kelp upon the eastern beachee, which the farmers are busy securing for use upon their farms. - The ship Wellington, we learn by way of New Orleans, has been totally wrecked off Gingerbread Ground, with a cargo of hay and produce?
