rThe Know Nothing*. OriNIONS OP TBUS KNULlall rasa*. [From the Liverpool Jonrnal, Jan. 27.1 Tit Naw You Herald hM deatroted the Know Nothings? it has published their creel. Am Is all other secret conspiracies mystery vu assumed by this Yankee faction be ?uae the object contemolsited would not bear criticism. When the secret is known the power is extinct, as, in the in aect world, the birth of love is tlM moment of death. In politics, sail Coleridge, whatever originates In fear term in it w in folly; and the Kuow Nothings, fearing dea-jcrac/, have made themselves ridicu loos by the cowardly and mysterious method they adopted for saeauiisgit. It needed cot "Note* and Qoe ieo" to learn that the new is often old; that the follies and crimes ?f the pest are eternally being repeated ; aid the Knoir Nothing j have shown us that the AOericans are let.i original in tbelr arguments than In their invent i ns. Their dlilect revlvUiea what ia abaolute n tl o eld country; and we now see that the principles wine i the most obstinate tory and absolutist won a. in K i ope, be ashamed to acknow ledge? constitute the c -cdof the Know Nothings. Tbeiis ia a 'nrge and itinerant belief; they have faith in monopoly, in pr tectlon to cative industry, limited fraurhise, inl ieranoe of strangers, and anil Popery. In the old world these things were the growth of time, credulity, and interest; but ia tbe ntw wo'li tbey are the rcproich of the latelli . gene a of the age. We huve escaped from thsm; [ and our bret?.r<n beyond tha Atlantic, in shaking off tbe el er fo imt of gonrumeut, oujjht to have relieved themselves of tie notions in which til gov ernment exi ted. In point of fa;t, the pe >ple of America are not under tbe vicions influence of such notions; and perhaps It is as well that right think ing should cei ive strength from tbe opposition o' i inch conspirators as tbe Know Nothings. This association was permitted to gather strength from its vapueiess, and to grow into importanoe by it* support of party; but now that Its object are known we reckon confidently on Its ipsely decline. Tbe association, however, has bjen got up with copslde;abie tklL: it appeals to piany prejndufa and variety of interests, and it la prodigal of promised benefits. The It man Catholic religion It obnoxious to hereditary feeling; and foreigners are disliked by tbe working population from their alleged inter ference, adversely, with the rate of wages: manu facturers ate advocates of "native industry;*' and an unlimited franchise interfere! with the whig, or Tory vote, because it is on the tide of democracy. ^ "nit's the lad for work,'' said a Virginian to Mr. Chambers, wht n the subject of labor was mentioned; fat Pat, poor fellow, from a variety of caases, is patronised rataer than respected in tbe new, as veil as in the old world. What Mr. Shell called the poetry of his offences is net esteemed in New Yotk; and his creed and his brogue fall tore ccmmend him to those who wi'l not understand his national romance. Though a bad Christian, ?a Father O'Leiry, or somebody else, sail, he Is a good Catholic; and. at he encounters toe Orange man on the Hudson, he cannot forget the feeling that animated him on the Shannon. His theology is not very extensive or very accurate; bnt his belief it sincere, and he will fight for it. A row is at any time an amusement; there is a frenzied delight in knocking do wn aty one who dares inanlt Iceland, the pnaat, or the Pope. The Irish Orangemin is jnst as Irrational aid disorderly; and bath have disgusted tne inhabitants of too many towns in the States by fiots and bloodshed, even on the Sabbath. At the majority are P/otestanti, the "Papists" are, of oonrse, ever in tbe wrong; and feeling derives strength from prejudice, encouraged by religious controversy. Ultra-montanism ia as rampant In America as in Auatria and Florence; and Arch bishop Hughes is as ardent a divine ri?ht man in oolitii s as Archbishop Cullen. Learned conveiti t> Catholicism are as numerona In the States as in Great Britain; and the most distinguished, if nit all of those, reek to conreet religion with the most des potic p<litlcal doctrines. Unthinking republicans see in this a kkd of danger to the iotegritv of the star spangled banner; and the Kuow Nothings eagerly, therefore, convert the alarm into capital. In tbeir address they say:? Oar government 1* not sectarian. Men miy worship God or tbe Virgin >? their consciences dictate; it msy beourgrief. but it is none of our business We may strive to eoligbten their consciences, but we would not bind them. hqual rights pertain to us all in tbene mat ters. But. as Americans, we hart no right to allow any to administer our affairs who have sworn allegiance to another, and not revoked it, If the bishop'* otth hin ts him to the Pope we must allow him no influence in our polities He n>ar acknowledge a higher law tbau our constitution but it must not be an earthly one. We wage no war on Roman cree* or Papal conlesil ns; but if Borne or a Pope dictate tbe political action of our ci tixena, it become* u* to level Rome and humble the Pope. If a church is the agent of a foreign potentate to wound our liber y it m our duty to crush out of th?t church its political life. We bare *11 icad something like thh bjfore: It waa ottered in Parliament a thousand times during tbe"Bmancipa*ion" debate; it elicited cheers on maay a tor jr platform: and ever an anon it is venti lated by the Rev. Dr. M'Neile at the amphitheatre. Tbe sentiment, the fear, or the belief? call it what En will? impaired the energy cf our oirn great Dfdom fo' centuries; bat it only took twenty jean of need^m t,< give it a practical refutation. At this moment Catholic Francs has an army en gaped In combat with despotism; and the Irish Cfcthaiii solcier beside tbe English Proteatatt sol ditr in the tame field of fight, performs in noble comvanioBsbi j deeds of valor of whish the history of chivalry affords no parallel. Tbe Irish Cath >llc bishops vi m or ient advocates of the war us the liberals of Leeds. It nay surprise tbe Know Nothings to b? told that tbe individual politi al opinions ut the Roman Ca tholic biahop of New York are as obnoxious in Ire land aa in America, and that the intellectual Catho lic press ol Ireland is now engaged in a contest with , ita own bishops on a kindred subject. Strange ! enough, too, at the very moment when an aisocta- | tion la the State* is condemning certain political principles of tbe Court of Rime, two Catholic na- I tie ns , near to Home, are acting in direct opposition , to these principles. Not lees strange is the fact that aa Iiuh Catholic newspaper, on Saturday last, reprobates eeitsin Catholics in Ireland for an al leged tendency la the same direction. The Dublin T\!t graph saja:? There is not an aati Catholic paper in the United King do in, from the Time*, of London, to the Daily Erpre u. of Dublin, but has expressed ita approval of the project of law proposed by "the Uberxl" ministry of Piedmont for the spoliation of the chnrch, and the Iniquitous tax ation ol bishops :u the Sardinian kingdom in Piedmont that attempt has been completely success ful, which we now see struggling for a victory in Ireland ? that is, laymen obtaining the power to treat binhops and priests as they p'esse. Piedment, as w*ll as Spain, once , truly great and purely Catholie countries, are at this moment a warui-g to Ireland. Under the pretence of of seeking for important political changes, attacks were directed against (he episcopacy and the clergy in both places? aa we now see, in Ireland, men nm'.er the pre tence Of seek ng 'or a change in tbe land laws, abusing 1 tkese wo will not follow them in their peculiar path ? denouncing prieits "at the altar and in the pulpit," in- : citing mobs to cry shame" against their own bishops. ( ahuang priests as "corrupt," and prelate* as "political ? iatriguera," and placarding in their miserable journal*, even the meet exalted of our archbishops, the Papal ; legate, as untrue to his principle*, and s foe to the rights cf the nr'eithood "and the people' Such things 1 were permitted to be done in Piedmont and Spain, under the name of "liberty." It is ever thus: in dvtlized nations tbe morality is ' the seme no matter what tbe Christian creed, and ! nnder the same oircumntancee tbe Catholis and Pro testant indulge in the same politic*! principles. | Macanley telle na thst Protestant Bogland was on?* despotic: and we know that Catholic Venice, Flo rence, Genoa, Pisa, Ac., war* once republics. For a republican to object to a man beoause of his reli gion is to give up the argument on which republics neceeeanly test far durability. There ia nothing in political effrontery to com- 1 par* with tbe absurd impudence of Americana ob- , pcting to immigration. It waa by str*ng*n that th* mates were mad* what they are; it is to the immigrants the country must look for what it moat want*- -population. The Irish and Osrman laborers have made tier canals, their rallwaja, their high ways, ar j tbeir piers. These are the Uatro meats which paah back slavery iato the fetid region* ot Louiatana; aad theirs waa tbe valor which conquer ed in the revolution, and carried the atripe* aad stara into th* City ol Mezioo. Th* American army now is almoat entirely com nosed of tbete- sod when "bis Rxc*Uencv H. J. j uan'mr" t* la the legislature of Maaaacnueerta 1 that noce but native Americas* should be per- i mitted to e, be needed tbe indirect information which f.ur Foreign KnlUtment bill will afford him.

On tte immeoM lakee uatutioa m%j rev mm the present practice. Immigration baa ita evila. It introduces poverty and crime, for all emigrants are not rlotn inluttrl oni, booea' and orderly; bat these are the oncDmt tasta of the system. Housekeepers cannot buy meat without bo nee, and the Yankeea cannot have an ln flox of laborers without certain drawback*. The political part of the question U even mora easily understood. Immigrant* are arieut ad mirers of the republic, and, when they have a vote, vote fur democrats. Hence the eagerness of the whigs and Know Nothings to deny to them the pri vilege ot tha franchise. Yet their vote is Important only in New York and a few Western cities; and he iaabad republican woo, to nullify su.U Influence , would insinuate a principle the adoption or reten tion of which haa ruined all preceding republics. It is uteleaa to quarrel with Mr. (Gardner'* knowledge of history, for he is strangely ignorant of the annals of nations. The experience of the old woman at Exeter, as interrogated by Mr. Chad wick, is favorable to social progress; but, nevertheless, progress Is painfully slow. Modern instances are abundantly numerous at home; and the Know Nothinga in America tho;k us with unexpected proofs of ignorance. Yet this association has admit era where the/ could hardly be expected; and even the A mertcan Minister la London, Mr. Buchanan, is a Know Nothing. The Know Nothing* of P<-ihim> ItukIh. CIRCULAR 01 Tax TWENTY KIUIIT HiCKHKBS FUOM THK KNOW NOTHING CAUCUS TO TIJKIR CON RTlTUi>T8. High conviction* of duty impel the undersigned to submit to th?ir fellow citisenx the following ?ut? ment: ? At the commencement of the present *e<sion of the IegisUtuxe the fr.end* of the American organization, in the House of Representatives, reaolve<i toast as an independent party. Aa such tbey met lu caucus, and determined to admit none to their deliberation.-* but auch aa were known to be true to the ureal principle* of that organization fn vindication of those principles they alM> determined to support no man for any office in the gift Of the Legislature who waa not e<iaally known to be true to them, an well a? to the intereat* of the commonwealth. At the conventional caucus, held to nominate b candidate for State Treasurer, member* of the American organisation were refused admittance, simply because the/ had refu.ed to cj operate with the party from the beginning, (and to vote for it* caucus nominees. But at the caucus held on the evening of th* 9th inst. those who had been refuted admittance to the previous caucus were found in attendance; and some who were only known aa the bitter enemiea of the American Organization, were with us, directing and cod trolling the nomination of one of the most Intriguing, 11 not the moat corrupt, polltictana in the State. Areaolutlon was offered to exclude these objectionable person*. ani their own vote* indefinitely postponed the consideration of the resolution. A motion waa then made' to proceed to nomicata a candidate for the United Stat&a Senate by a nra rocr. vote. An amendment waa offered, substi tuting a vote by ballot. The amendment was adopted snd tlie resolution carried by a majority of only three? thus showing that those who had no right to bo present htld a controlling influence, or the balance of power. Here let us reflect for a moment upon our own position. There wt re before that Caucus the namea of mtny of the best men in Pennsylvania, whose friend* were urging them aa proper candidates. There were in that caucus leas than twenty men who openly admitted they would vote for Siaon Cameron Under these circumstance* it si eased scarcely possible that he could be nominated. He was openly repudiated by three fourths of the mem bers, and certainly we had no reason to fear, with this open avow al of hoatllity, for almost a ny othsr ol the names before us would have been acceptable It is true t'.ie f had masked themselves by the secret ballot ; but to us thi* was more an evidenee of cowardice than of perfidy. We 2. mid not believe that all who had voted for the secret ballot bad done ao to tide themselves from their constituents, or to betray ua into the support of a man desplse-l and disowned by every political organization in l*ennsylvania. It waa not until we began to ballot that our betrayal be came manifest. It was tkeu that we discovered tue trescher; that was pretending to oppose Cameron, and yet hypocritically and secretly voting for hi* nomination. The [lower that controlled' that caucus was too pal pable; corruption was l>ehind the throne, and no wonder that it* v.ctims skulked behind a secret vote, and covered their 1'eeds from the eyes and knowledge of ths beholders. Weie we justified in leaving tbe caucus when the e?i- I dence, to our mln^a. ha<l become demonstrative 1 Could we, a* tlie represents liven of on honest constituency, bare served tuem villi fidelity by remaining * Could we bare esunerated ounelres from tbe odium of ?uch a 1 nomination if we bad delayed our departure and aids 1 to , consumate such a result )? Could we liaee remained in that lounua, bettering ourdees bound by It* action, and justified ourn?lre? in voting for n man whose whole his- 1 torjr i? but the history of intrigue? ? a mau wbo hat i> spiked all part/ obligation*, and treated all caitcuies with contempt. . I The inquiry arise*. wbo la Mmoti Cameron? At a > I'atrruian, fame baa never associated his name with tbe word. At a politician, he In* always profe??od to be a democrat, and yet that party only f>-<a?mber< h<m be caase of hia treachery, and apeak* of hi n as a traitor. A* a wbig. it ia hit lioast that be never voted a whig ? ticket in hia life? that party being saved from such a j disgrace. Aa an Ameriean and an snti slarery man. let the lecord speak for itself. At a county convention, I held in tbe (V>nrt Honae In the borough or Harrisbnrg, on tie at rood day of laat September, Simon Cameron wa< a delegate and an active ra-mber. The following resolutions a ere offered in that cot vention, and ar* said to have been in his handwriting Certainly, tiny met with ro opposition from him ? Resolved, That we have confidence in the adminlttra tion of Gen fierce, because he ha* manfully battled for ? those principles, and thrown it* influence in favor of eustaiting tbe right of man to self government Retolred, Tbit the ahla. fearless and democratic ad ministrat on ot Gorernrr Bigl*r meet* our heart v appro bation, and we corgratulate the democracy of the tftate upoo the certalaty of his election 4 Resolved, That Judge Black, the able and Intrepid Chief Juitireof the Supreme Court, lia* aa conducted himself ss to win the esteem snd confldence of the peo pie. Resolved, That tbe manly repudiation of Know No thlngism by lieury 8. Mott ha* won tbe respect of even hia ensmiee. and will add largely to hia majority at the com ng election. Resolvtd. lhat we are in favor of the Nrbraska Kan aaa bill, because It embodies tbe vitsl principles of self government, which never can csnflict with the interest* of frseiom. R? solved, That we are opposed to the precrtptlve and etd anti-republican orrler railed Know Nothings, and aball deem It our dutv, as democrat*, to oppose for oSoe all rersors known to have sny connection with it. When baa be changed his opinion* upon the*e ques tions? Wben. or where, has he disowned them? And eren if there be any recent recantation got up for tbe present emergency, there is not character enough ia the man to impose upon rredulite itself. Rnt do not the people of ltonsylrania aspect some thing more of tbe present legislature than the election of ?'an old political hack." The great political revolution that br< light the American party into power baa no pa ? allet In the history of Pennsylvania. The old party or ganiration* were dissolved by an utaeen power, and old politicians, with all their schemes, left floundering or wrecked with the element* that supported them, absorb ed by the mvsteriou* power of an organization beyoad their control. This greet revolution ia not without ita lesson. 1 ho old parties, with their leading poiitlcisns, were ((rropt; snd it was tle.r signal destruction tke people sought when they put their power Into the new oiganirstion. They determined to rebuke corruption. Ihey did rebuke corruption, and the party in power stands ss a monument of that rebuke. Shall the Ameriean perty then, in the face of all ita - professions and actions, be now made tbe dishonored in strument in elevating Mmon Cameron to the highest of fice in its gift, end thus bold him up to the world as the exponent, embossment, and per eoniflcatioo of Americanism f Wo truat not. We consider him a lit repreeentative of nothing good, and a fit nponent of no brnorable principle. Aa I'enn ay Iranians, we remember tbat our Slate motto aa adopt ed by our ancestors of '78, t* " Virtue. IJberty and In dependence. ' ' We reverence this glonoue old motto, and beai in mind that we bat recently swore as represent* Uvea, to perform onr duties a* each with fidelity? fidelity U> oi. r constituents, fidelity to our native State. and fidelity to the eneobling principle engraven on our Htot* escut eke. n. Mull we, tben, or can we coaoiatently with the osths we tsve taken, support a nomination so destitute of every t '.smect or virtue, whieh would disgrace the Ami I Iran nrganiiatton and onr native Htate. and which we feel a ell assured our conotitnente will repudiate with acorn and righteons indignation ? We recognise no power In sny caucus to require us thus to sacrifice our Integrity, to throw away our self -reepect, or to violate onr oaths, and therefore it i* that In tbe independence ot freemen, we atrtke down king caucn* at the bidding of , our country. At-ove our venerated mot'o, and aaeoeiated with It la all the memories of tbe past, and our hopes of tbe fn tore. Is the American eagle? our national emblem and onr country'* pride. It ever adorns our itarry flag, and it spreads its "wings of glory over us' a* a protecting angel. When we go iato the ball of tbe House of Rep j reseatativea to eiecute the most important trnst eonfid- I e>i to ua. we deelre to meet something there having some aosbgy or concordance with theae glorious recollections and these sacred emblems. Grant u* this, or something approilmstlng to this, and all will be well; and our ' heerts and onr hands will be with you, both to do and to dare. Rut what we say unto one we say unto 411? invitA us cot in there to perUke ef a buziard's feast. Ask us not to snp|>ort a nomination brought about, at I webslieve by tbe concentrated an-l "cohesive power of putt! ? plunder,' and tbe superadded element of shsiue If*s and wholesale private bribery. All countenance and 1 participation in such thing* as thise, we not only most ! sffnestly and peremptorily decline, bnt bare pledged ; ourselves unitedly end determinedly to oppose. Such is a brief and hasty outline of ourraet action and onr intended Tuture.course. We submit it to our con stituents confident of a triumphant vindication, and we crrnlally invite all our honest fellow repreeentativea, whether ia tbe late caucus or not, to rallv with ua in this con est, aad to make common cause with a* for the ho and the glory of out native State, asaaring them -i that though It may have passed iato an adage that "Pa I ria Is France," yet Harriiburg la not Pennsylvsnia.
