language toward ourselves. Such high appre
ciation of our humble but earnest efforts in be
half of tLe great American cause, goes far to
compensate for the wearying, exhausting labor
of an exciting and protracted canvass. We
could wish he had coached some portions of
his letter in reference to others iu milder terms,

in political discussions, and fully acquainted
with the 6Cope and bearing of his remarks, we

Col. Torbett's Legislative Record.
The Banner of Wednesday makes up from
the Journals of the Legislature of Tennessee, a
very formidable list of charges, and tm proofs
to sustain them, against Col. Tohbett, the anti
American candidate for Congress in this dis

the main points ot allegation and proof. Be

gennine, old ca sa law, in 1812, a notice of
which we have already copied from the Spring

Thursday, Oct. 6 1842. j
Mr. Burton called up the resolution which he htfl
heretofore moved for the relerenca of the subject of
Congressional Apportionment to a Select Commit
tee. Mr. Torbktt suggested that the Committee should
have regard to voting jxpidation rather than to the
three fifth slave representation. He was understood
to favor a ratio based upon the number of free
white males over the age of twenty-one, observing
the act of Congress so far as the number ot mem
bers assigned to Tennessee is concerned. See

Naturalizing Foreigxeks. During the
present session of the City Court of Charles

Charleston Standard says two hundred and
fifty foreigners have been naturalized. Thus
we eee the kind of weapons the enemies of the
American party are fighting with. If such an
effort is made in Charleston merely to deter
mine the result of a sheriff's election, what
may be expected here in Tennessee in view of
the important elections pending?
In view of Buch indications as the above,
can an American citizen long debate on which
side to array himself? Are yon for or against
the American cause? Are you for or against

Correipondenc ot the Nashville True Whig.
Rosic, Smith county, June 10, 1855.
Mr. Ekitor: I read in the last issue of your
admirable journal, with no small degree of gratifi
cation and pleasure, au editorial stricture upon Mr.
A.' O. P. Nicholson and his political course of con
duct. Of all public men in the State of Tennessee,
he is the most vulnerable, and is the last man on
earth to reproach others for alleged improper mo
. tives, or a want of consistency in political action.
His base treachery to Hugh Lswson White, the
great Cato of his times, and the brightest star that
ever illuminated the political theatre of Tennessee)
is yetvVesh in the remembrance of an indignant
and outraged people. He clnims the appellation of
an Union Democrat, and who was it but this pam
pered stipendiary and corrupt stickler for place,
that betrayed all his principles, and interfered in the
New York elections, backed by this infamous
administration, to break down the national Dick
inson party, and give place to the Van Burcn
Abolition Buffalo traitors f One number of his pa
der came out in a flutniug denunciation against the
repeal of the Missouri restriction, and another in
rapid succession, making that repeal a test of dem
ocratic fMtlty. Iu one issue he quotes the Van
Buren favor, in another the south aide democrats,
and in return receives the merited scorn and con
tempt of both. He is either a fit sutject for the
Lunatic Asylum, or an inveterate knave, and Las
reached hts appropriate place among the abolition
ists. I understand he contemplates making a visit
to Smith county next Saturday, which, for the good
of the American parly, it is to be hoped he will do,
for his appearance amongst us would be like the
stealthy spproacb of Calaliiu in the Roman Senate;
it will awaken a storm of indignation that would
shake the face of the earth ! ! !

TO THE PUBLIC. .
Jacksborocgh, July 7tb, 1855.
The endersigned this day witnessed the discus
sion between the candidates for Governor, before
what the citizens of this place say was as large an
audienco ss they ever knew convened here on a
similar occasion. Col". Gentry led off in a speech
of great eloquence and force, discussing the usual
Gov. Johnson, in his rejoinder, charged that his
competitor-had evaded or dodged the Free Basil
Iicsolution he had the honor to introduce in the
Senate of the extra session of the Legislature, on
the 5th of October,' 1842. It involved a gbxat
principle, he said, and one which concerned the
rights and interests of the masses. It was obvious
why his competitor dodged an issue here which he
gladly men in Fayette county. In that county
there were 15,000 slaves in this (Campbell) coun
ty, there vrcro but 850! 'The resolution he had
offered, of which he was" proud, as the friend of
the people and the poor man, and which had been
voted down by the lordly slaveholders of Middle
and West Tennessee, was in these words :
uIicolve,i, by the General Autembly of the State
of Tenneiu, That the basis to be observed in lay
ing off the State into Congressional districts, shall
be the voting popidation, without any regard to the
three fftht of Negro population."
Gov. Johnson contended that the honest working
man of Caupbell county, was borne down by the
aristocratic slaveholders of Middle or West Tennes
see, and his Fair Daughter and Virtuous Wife, un
der the law advocated by Lis competitor, were
weighed in the balances against the Negro vV enches
ef the proud slaveholder !
Col. Gentry, in a rejoinder of SO minutes, indig
nantly denounced the charge of dodging that or
any other ifsue, as nntrue, and in withering terms
asked the Governor why be bad not brought it up
the day before, in his opening speech at Clinton!
Were there too many Knox and Roane county
slaveholders there? Turning to the Governor and
pointing in his face, he charged him with denying
publicly in Fayette county and elsewhere, beyond
the mountains, that his Free Basis Abolition Reso
lution was t.n issue in this canvass 1 He told Lim
that his organ, the Union and American, denied
that it was an issue. He told him that Lis friends
in the West, denied it, and were excusing hira for
offering such an infamous resolution, on the ground
that it was done in the confusion of debate, when
various counter resolutions were offered. But the
Governor should not escape under such false pre
tences. TLe facts were, as the journals would
show, that he bad his infamous resolution called up
thirteen days after it was offered, and that it was
voted down by a vote of twen'y-lwo to three. Three
Democrats voted for it, and one of the three was
He said the political career of this man had been
characterized throughout, by paying the most hypo
critical and obnoxious court to the people by
arrogating to himself the high prerogative of being
the exclusive champion of the rights of the masses,
the Mechanics the people's advocate. And here
he was trying to array the poor against the rich,
and advocating a disorganizing proposition, that no
other man, Democrat or Whig, South'of Mason and
Dixon's line, had ever advocated. It was a species
of low-flung demagoguism, Le would scorn tOBtoop
to. He was appealing to the lowest prejudices, aud
meanest passions of the human heart. Although
he (Gentry) was in a division of the State where
there were but few slaves, he was ready to enter
into a bond with the Governor to discuss this ques
tion be had bo exultingly brought forward, in every
county, and every mountain gorge in East Tennes
see until the close of the canvass. And he dared
the Governor, on this stand, to promise, if elected,
to urge, in his Message, his Fret Basis Abolition
measure upon the Legislature.
When Johnson came to reply, and was about to
close without noticing the proposition of Gentry,
he, Gentry, walked round behind the stand, asked
him to promise to bring the subject forward iu his
message if elected, but he declined the offer.

We say "let those who have a lingering hope
of the nationality of Know Nothingism" in
Massachusetts, even, be of good cheer. We
will show them another aspect of the case.
The Rochester American, of a late date, eays
there has Ken a split among the Massachusetts
seceders. The action of the American State
Convention at Boston recently, has produced
great dissatisfaction among the lolters from
the Philadelphia Convention. That action
was against fusion, repudiating the grand "Re
publican Movement," and for the American
doctrines &i maintained by Americans every
where. They who wanted to blow the Ameri
can party cp, and build on its ruins a Seward
fusion rarty, were displeased. Of this sort is
the Springfield Republican, from which we
The action of the Enow Nothing State Council
which met ut Boston on Thursday as reported to
us by telegriph was altogether untrue to the de
mands of Iks lime, and inadequate to the accom
plishment of what we believe are the strong desires
of the great body of the people ol Massachusetts.
The delegates to Philadelphia were but nominally
sustained. The spirit and purpose with which those
delegates left Philadelphia have been "spit upon"
by the State Council.
A republican fusion is practically denied. The
State Council says It must be through and by iu
organization, and with iu peculiar Native American
features accompanying. Will not the people arise
and ssy it shall be over that organization? They
do not want Know Nothin-L-m they wantafuaion
of all who an willing to act together against slavery
aggression. They want no other test than thin;
and we believe they will vindicate their purposes
in this resport, ia spite of the narrow aud selfi.h
action at Boston, on Thursday. The flummery and
illiberality of the Know Nothing orgauizuon have
beea tolerated for their supposed indirect benefits;
but when these are denied, the hand that developed
the monster will itself strangle it.
There is irood ground for hoping that a large
portion of the Americans of Massachusetts
will yet bi found on common groona wiui
their brethren of the other Sut.
In proof that we mat yet cherish a reasonble,
well-fou.ndl "hope" of the nationality of the
American party, even in Massachusetts, we
quote the following unequivocal language from
the Boston Courier, a paper of high eonoerva
tive character, formerly known as the " TTti
tter ory" and not hitherto friendly to the
American movement in that State, under the
abolition auspices of Wihtou & Co. The Cou

In the language of the author, ulethim
answer it who can." Here is the letter:
Sir Some time ago a pamphlet was sent me en
titled "An Appeal from the Protestant Association
to the People 0 Great Britain." A day or two
Eince a kind of answer to this wa9 put into my hand
which pronounces iU style contemptible, its reason
ing futile, and its object malicious. On the con
trary, I think the style of it is clear, ea?y and natu
ral; the reasoning, in general, strongand conclusive;
the oly'ect or design, kind and benevolent. And in
pursuance of the same kind and benevolent design,
namely, to preserve our happy constitution, I shall
endeavor to confirm the substance of that tract by
a few plain arguments. With persecution I have
nothing to do. I persecute no man for his religious
principles. Let there be as "boundless a freedom
in religion" as any man can conceive. But this
does not touch the point. I will set religion, true
or false, utterly out of the question. Suppose the
Bible, if you please, to be a fable, and the Koran to
be the word of God. I consider not, whether the
Romish religion be true or false, I build nothing on
one or the otner supposition. Thercfoie, away with
ail your common place declamation about intole
rance, snd persecution for religion. Suppose every
word of Tope Pius's creed to be true. Suppose the
Council of Trent to have been infallible; yet I insi-t
upon it, that no government not Roman Catholic,
ought to tolerate men of the Roman Catholic per
I prove this by a plain argument (let him answer
it that can: ) That no Roman Catholic docs or can, !
r. it it 3nlnt1?a fir Yit 1 1 ....... n n ........ n n 1 . 1 I
vior. I prove it thus It is a Roman Catholic
maxim, established, not by private men, but by a
public council, that ";to faith is to be kept tct'A '
heretics.'" This has been openly avowed by the
Council of Constance; but it never was openly dis- ;
claimed- Whether private persons avow or disa-!
vow it, it is a hxed maxim ot the Church of Rome.
But as long as it is so, nothing can be more plain
than that the members of that church can give to
reasonablo secutity to any government of their alle
giance or peaceable behavior. Therefore, they
ought not to be tolerated by any government, Pro
testant, Mohammedan, or Pagan. You say, "nay,
but they will take an oath of allegiance." True
five hundred oaths; but the maxim, "no faith with
heretics," sweeps them all away as a spider's web.
So that still, no Governors that are not Roman Cath
olics can hare any security of their allegiance.
A train It hnSA who AcV nnwtpifirA t Ita aniritn-.il nnnrnp
of The Pope can give nosecudty of their allegiance
to a:.y government; but all Roman Catholics ac -
knowledge this; therefore, they can give no secu
rity for their allegiance. The power of granting
pardons for all sins past, present and to come is,
and has been for many centuries, one branch of his
spiritual power. But those who acknowledge him
to have this spiritual power can give no security
for their allfeciance, since they believe the Pope
can pardon rebellion, high treason and all other
sins, whatsoever. The power of dispensing with
any promise, oath or vow, is another branch of the
spiritual power of the Pope, and all who acknowl-
edge his spiritual power must acknowledge this.
But whoever acknowledges the dispensing power
of the Pope, cau give no security for his allegiance
to any government. Oaths and promises are'noue;
they are liffht as air di'pensation tnnkes 'them all
nidi and void. Nay, not only the Tope, but even
a priest, has power to pardon sins! This is an es
sential doctrine of. the Church of Rome. But they
that acknowledge this cannot possibly give any
security for their allegiance to any government.
Oaths are no security at all; for the priest can par
don both perjury and high treason. Setting their
religion aside, it is plain that upon principles of rea
son no government ought to tolerate men who cannot
give any security to that government for their alle
giance and peaceful behaviour. But this, no Ro
manist can do, not only while he holds that "no
faith is to be kept with heretics," but so long as
he acknowledges "eitherj priestly absolution or the
spiritual power of the Pope.
If any one pleases to answer this, and set bis
name, I shall probably reply. But the productions
of annoymous writers I do not promise to take any
