There is no longer any distinctive features left of the old parties. The principles or Democracy, true De mocracy, republican Democracy, are living, ana stand out in bold relief upon the platform of the American party, and are eminently inculcated and warmly cherished in the single doctrine, "Americans shall rule America" the American people republican Americans. What Democrat true to the principles of republicanism, denies to the American people the right to rule their coun try; the right to select and elect their officers; the right to say who shall be citizens and upon what terms? What American unbound by die ties of office, power and party, will deny this simple, plain first principle of Democracy? But we bare said there are no longer any dis inctive features of the old parties left, and we can prove it. It is a Tact that a very large number or Demo crats, who are still in principal so, belong to the American Party. It is a fact that this anti- American party is re ceiving into its bosom, in close communion, every and all descriptions, and grades of politicians, Whigs, Frcesotlcrs, lied licpublican Hermans, Socialists, and every agency by which votes may be obtained and power attained Dare any De mocrat or an ti- American deny this It is noto riously trne of Alabama, and the contradiction if made, involves cither wilful blindness or gross ig norance.

On almost dozens of occasions the National Americans indicated their prefer encc and their readiness to co-operate with the conservative elements of the House, come from what quarter they might, in the organization. But these offers and propositions were almost instantly rejected on every occasion on which they were presented. It was the deliberate in- offences find shelter and welcome. By the sin- tention of the Democrats of the South to so them to that separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident; that though all men are created equal, and endowed bv their Creator with certain inalienable rights, among which are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness there are those who, lrom laise eu- ' f. ... i- l:ui i ucaiion, or prejudices insnueu iu cimuuwu,wu not appreciate the blessings of a free govern - . ... a . ment. That though national rights are secured by the government of these United States to foreigners, a vast majority of those upon whom these privileges are conferred, do not appreciate or regard them. On the contrary, they, seek to encroach upon our form of government a gov ernment sacred to those who have inherited not only the form, but thejBpirit of liberty. We also hold, that it is the right of the people to alter, or abolish, any principle of government; and that it is their duty to alter or change that which is injurious to themselvesor contrary to the spirit of their free institutions. That the American people have patiently submitted to repeated injuries and ururpations.all having, in indirect object, the destruction of their nation ality, let facts submitted to a candid world tes tify. . - Foreigners have disregarded the wholesome and liberal provisions of our laws relative to naturalization. They have endeavored to destroy the purity of the ballot-box. They have demanded . that their children bo taught in foreign languages, in preferenc to our mother tongue. - " , - Thev insist on retaining the-languages of their Dative lands; and to that end.have organized military companies among themselves, formed political associations anti-American in language and spirit, and demanded that our laws should be printed in foreign tongues, for their especial benefit.

But in the votes that they give, and in the speeches that they deliver, and in the parties they form, these men are really thinking not of the country they have adopted, but the land they have left not how to benefit their frierds in America, but how to avenge themselves on their enemies in America. E&m The great principles on which the Amer ican party i based, says the Albany ; Register, have been recognized, rather than realized, even by many of its warmest advocates. That the Union must be preserved-TbatlAmericans should rule America that our public schools should re main unsectarian that the Bible shall not. be forced out of them that tho laity shall be poss essed of and control the temporalities of the Churches that foreigners shall be prepared for the right of suffrage before exercising it, would seem to be most reasonable and self-evident pro positions. That access to the ballot-box should be free to all voters that our Legislative Halls should be purified, a corrupt and extortionate lob by annihilated, alleged fraud and corruption ex amined into and exposed, would seem to be honest and right. ' And yet there are those, even in the American party, who sometimes advocate with bated breath and faltering voice these great and glorious principles. But the American party rests upon these principles, and must stand or fall with them..--.'.

" . In tha treastof every true Patriot, in the bo son cf every true American, the Principles cf manage and intrigue during the conflict, to aid in the election of Banks, so far as they could do so without publicly casting their votes for him. Hence, while, as a whole, they refused to vote for the plurality rule,, yet they sent out enough volunteers to effect their object. And t! e consequence inevitably was that Banks was elected. We, therefore, appeal to the country, to say, whether the Southern D?mocrvts are not solely responsible for the unfortunate and ominous result of Banks' election. f& The Baltimore American understands that the General Government intends buying the 'Baltimore Exchange Building' for the Post Office. The building is to be improved by ad ditions and repairs.
