The result of my deliberations and

Now lor ail illustration of the ele

they may be called,) ol this secret

that some of the office-holders of Vin

trasting them with the principles of a
Republican Government and the duties
ot a Christian, it will be apparent that
there is more truth than romance id the
assertion. j
How can a member of that Order ex
cuse himself from the unholy desfcra
lion ot the Bible in confessing thf de
grees in a Know Nothing lode?
Why attempt to use the precious eift
of God to mao, for the purpose of
sealing and rendering more sacred
treasonable oath an oath which binds
the party 1st to deny the fact that ' he
port the Constitution and laws of the
iiun mc vuiitiiuuiiuii ttiiu taws oi llie
United States and of the State of Ohio:
refer then to these sacred instruments
they have sworn to support; read the
liberal and humane principles therein
incorporated, 1st, 'That all men have
a natural and indefeasible right to wors
ship Almighty God according to the
dictates ol their own conscience."
Secondly "No person shall be com
peueu iu uueiiu, erect or support any
place of worship, or maintain any form!1'16
of worship against his consent; and no
preference shall be given by law to

ISow, it may be said that I have
presumed too much,' and that the mem
bers of that order are not thus strong,
bound by the obligation which they
take; my answer to that is this: I have
been told by persons who acknowl
edged that they were members ot the
Order, that such were the facts, in re
lationto the obligation. Again, my
process of reasoning is this, that where
set'of individuals combine together
for political purposes, and form them
selves into a seeret oatlibound society,
and attempt by every possible means
secrete their object and doings from
public scrutiny, we have an undoubted
righl to presume most strongly against
them, even that their object and our-
poses tire treasonable..
Another fend perhaps a more formid
able objection in my njind to this pi
litical and proscribing organization, is
fact, that one. of its legitimate ipA.
dencies is to .build up;-, support and
strengthen the Cathode Church; itent
bles tue'members.of that church witb
soraccolor of truth to complain oi bft
persecuted Bt , oppressed 'on

and will ultimately csu.se hundreds and
thousands in and out of the Protestant
churches to lay down their prejudices
against Catholics to sympathize with
and lavorthe cause of the oppressed
not on account of any love that they
have for that church, its doctrines, or
tor some of its individual members,
but because ot their hatred to tyranny
and oppression in w hatever sect, . party
or people it is exhibited, and because
ol the cry cf doion tcith the Catho
lies, the Irish, the Germans, &C, by
these Know nothings.
I have now, Mr. Editor, written

she remain silent, and cherish the de-
taut fact, that some of our member
are seriously and deeply involved in the
mire and sir of Know Nothingism
and thereby have become the mere
tools and dupes of some of the veriest
political demagogues in the world;
that in my humble judgment they are
oringing disgrace upon themselves and
upon our church; and I desire to know
what action (if any) our church will
take in relation to this matter ill
herself as nobly as the
Presbyterian and some othei of the
Protestant churches have done? or will
lusive hope and opinion that Know
Nothingism, when nursed in the bo
som of the Protestant churches, will
weaken and produce the final overthrow
of Catholicism? If the latter conclu-
sion is to govern her action the fate of
our church is determined, and the ep
itaph to be inscribed upon her tomb
stone might as well be written now.

Thursday at Sardis, in this county, on
a charge of attempted rape upon a lit
tie girl, only 4 years and 8 months old.
He had his trial before Esquires Jeff

sufficiently conclusive, and he was held
to bail in $400, which his father gave.
and the young man was discharged.

As bail was improperly allowed, it is
said the magistrates have ordered the

to his father's house on Saturday night
