Thardr Morniue.:::::::::: Asat Sf3. 1833. "The American Party iadthnwho Abate it." Under this Lead, the Cincinnati Gazette gives facts, in regard to tha riots in the Queen , City and at Louisville, to which we invite the j special attention of our reader. The article will be found on the first page f to-day's pa-j per. It id emphatically a "common sense explanation" of the origin of tho disgraceful i scenes that Lave been enacted in these two cities. Although we have considerable chari ty for our neighbor of the Jeffersoniau, yet we confidently believe that nothing would please him better than to have the same kind of a feel ing of hatred and ill-will, accompanied by the same bloody result, stirred up all over , Indiana, if by that means sufficient capital : could be made out of it to cause her to 'wheel' ; into the support of old lineisra slavery and ; whisky. We are led to this conclusion, from j the bitter denunciations the editor is constantly j heaping on tho objects and aims of the Amer- j ican party describing that party as being composed of "cut-throats," "black legs," "murderers," incendiaries;" in short, villians of every grade! His paper, like all the other "old lice" stripe, is filled week after week J with inflammatory appeals to naturalized citi-1 zena, well calculated to arouse their worst ! pulsions and prejudices. If a sufficient num-1 ber of that cla lived within our peaceful Quaker City, and could be led by tlie" nose, j to the sticking and shooting point, which he I aims at, blood would flow as freely within! our corporate limits, a did the contents of those whisky barrels a down the gutter, past the post office recently! Like Nero, he would ! fiddle the very same tune he is now playing, and swear that the American party caused the i wholesale murders, by advocating the prin-j eiples of Amkkicans "to the manor born," j as well a those who are natnrulized doing J their own thinking and voting, without the j interference of such weak and puerile "think- ing machines" as the Jeff.' editor.or of those ! who have not been on the soil but eighteen month Vile 'pithets and "big, swelling words," 1 hurled nl the American party, amount in the' aggregate to just nothing at all, particularly : when clearly traceable to a weak stomach or; a weaker head, as is the fact in this instance; I but as constant dropping of water is said to ! wear away stone, or run destroy iron, so will : a constant repetition of gross insults wear! away the patience of those upon whom they are heaped, without they happen to be blessed with an uncommon sharo of forbearance. The j constant babbling of a fool, may cause a wise ( man to so far forget the source from whence '. it emanates, as to rebuke the thing. i Hut we did not sit down to write either aj phillipic or a sermon, about tho denunciations j of old lineiam against Americanism we , . merely wish to call attention to the Gazette's) article that speaks our mind precisely, and ! we fully believe that no si nsible man, who has ' posted himself up in regard to the riots there- J iu alluded to, has arrived at any other conclu- j sion than "that the inflammatory appeals made ! to the naturalized citizens and foreigners, bv ' newspapers and demagogues, and the base falsehoods which were told respecting the ! character and aim of I ho Americans, have, been the real cause of the out breaks, and that i it is a calumny of the most unprovoked and ! vilest kind to stigmatize the men who com- j pose the American party as a gang of miscre-. ants, murderers and midnight incendiaries."

Does our brother believe it to be constitutional, ot does ha simply hope the Supreme Court w ill so decide it? The editor of tha American Las opinions of Lis own. The decisiou of the Court cauuot influence those opinions, except to subjmit to them iu tho Courts of the coun try. Willlia tell us whether he believes the, present law in accordance with tha letter and spirit of our constitution? We inferred from what we conceived to ba a litter opposition to tha Order of Know Nothings, that ha had gone over to the support and defense of tha political influence of tha Catholics in this country. Tha order was established to coun- teruot tuts Influence. hne opposition to tt ' order is not far from a support of Catholic , policy, ouu our irienu niay oe, sua ne says Vo i and wm rwriA..t Vim i.kt.-rM- .,;..". . . ...

It is now j feared that tha influence of all its friends will ; be required to sustain it against tha present j members oi tha Supreme Court. And wa shall with equal pleasure mark tha opposition j of tha editor of tha American, to the influ-j encaof tha Papa of Roma, and bis emissaries, j in attempting to control tha politics of this j country. i Dxatb or Hoh.

A number of those ofSoers are inclined to Ut the quelionof their light to hold for the, term for which they were "electa ; but they generally express a williugness to be guiJed by my opinion: and they desire i: now, be ciae" notices of the otlk'es to be filled at the approaching general election mu: soon be given, and poll books prepared, Under these circumstance 1 would be glad to satisfy them; but I regret to b obliged to SiiT I have no setded opinion on the subject. j tinjL no a,ltnoru,ve aCCiS0ns that nuet the point; and considering the question an i.pen one, and yet w is!iing to relieve the officers having xiuding duMcS to discharge, from a perplexing resionsibili;y, I would uggest to them the follow ing cour of action: Let notices of elections bo given as if tr.a proviso were unquestioned. Tt:e notice ran- i not, I think, be any evideuceof either a re-ig-, nation, or a waiver of the claim to hold the oftice; and a:iv clerk intending to try the qnes- i'i.m. might state the intention in me nonce. ( .Should the incumbt-nt hoi 1 o-,r, the claimant i of the office would of course institute proceed- ; ings to oust him. j q -,e question is, wheUieran frhce is in the nature of a contract between the is:ate and the , iucit..ibeut, and as such protected by the United laase of the Constitution of the States, inhibiting the States from rassiu laws . impairing the obligation ef contracts. That clause has been much discussed and ; extensively applied. It has been held to p-j ply to grants from a State to an individual; to charters to corporations; and to laws for bidding interferaace with the enjoyment of the things granted. But there are important , qualifications to the general rule; and there are powers of government it could not have been intended to take away by this constitu tional provision. Was it inten led to apply to laws that might be: enacted iu regard to the discharge of public duties; or to the possess ion or exercise of public rights; or to the en- ; jovment of public offices; or to the changes , in anv of these, that die legislature of a S ate, or a fortior', the people of a State in tl.e'r Sovereign character, might at any time deem expedient? If public officers are public agents, may not the agency be revoked or modified at the pleasure of the principal? Allowing due weight to ail that may be reasonably urged against the proviso, as inva- j ding vested rights. I incline to the opinion that the CourU will sustain it. For auswer to Probate Judges, County Commissioners, and some others, I would state, that the late decision of the Supreme Court only applies to cases where the term vf thet:jnce is fixed by the Constitution, and there-; fore I think the 7th section of the act touching vacancies in the ofti -e, ore, ii operative, where the term is not thus fixed. J. MORRISON. lu.peciiuu of Li'imii --Terrible Develop-' meut. It will be remembered that a la'e State law created the office of Liquor Inspector. Dr. H. Cox has been appointed Inspector of this' county, but as his authority to inspect with out the consent of tho owners is somewhat doubtful, he has confined his duties eutirely to called inspect ons. , Since he has been in office he lias inspected seventy six quantities of various liquors, iu tlie city. He lias found some pure liquor, but a great deal of low per t-entage, and some most pernicious fluids. In domestic brandy and port wine, he has found lh following in gredients in large quantities viz: Prussic arid, sulphuric acid, cider, alum, beet root juice, (coloring) nitric acid, logwood, lea l and cop- ' per.' lie inspected one cak of liquor represen ted a domestic brandy, which was very strtMigly tinctured with sulphuric and ni'ric acids, so much so. ti.a1 the drinking ot a reas. ' onible quantity of it, would produce serious injury. There was not a panicle of alcohol ! in it. In this case, but one man had parta ken of the liqu r in the ca-k, and he was im mediately taken sick after doini; so. As limited as the inspection has been, itt is sufficient to show that liquors are manufac-; tured and sold in this citv which are sheer poi son, and it is a matter of regret that tlie law ; does not enforce a stiict inspection of all liq-, uors.
