Mr. C. st" it is "evident J to til fl at tii* ]>movrit:v member- mi'the Legtste tnre ;u the friends i. tuts, r.:.d tiiaj -rum is tlie.r , friend." .Now, this remark was as ssiralted for as is imj rcore h v and gentlemanly fW* <>i nun nebcr assembled: at Harrishurg than those eorepo-iifg the Democratic portion of the Legislature • —ate', in repeating the Jug Law. they have done iiottiins; tiMue than to ohi-v the v.-u eo: the people, empbat rally expressed at the ha 1 tot-box.

We answer, confidently am! emphatically. ,A" < tie say that, in all its features and all its purposes, ' it is the very opposite of what it claims to be. Let - us see if we speak more or less than the simple . truth. . 1 In the first place, look at its eeerrey. Is there nnv • thmg American in that.' Is it American to belong ■ to u society lite very name and the very existence • j of which you are bound by an oath to keep a pro , t found secret ? Is it American to nominate men for i high office-, and keep their nomination a secret until ! it is revealed through the ballot-box' Is it Amen- , 1 j can to shrink from an open discussion ol" the chums I | and qualifications of candidate* lor high offices .' Is it American to sneak in the Council chamber for the ' transaction of political business through trap-doors -and back-entries, with one eye over ytuu shoulder, j " like a dog with a stolen breakfast, to guard against j - detection t Can there be anything peculiarly Amer t • icuu in ail association whose utaiii' features are re- 1 ipmbl'ed by nothing that h;l- existed in A 1 1 fforri" tie landing of the Pilgrims down to the day j 1 ! toat We numbered twenty-five niiiiitens of souls ?

Is this a:i object worthy of Americans I Lpok uncc more. It would offer a premium for ' religious hypucrVy, by excluding from office arid from s 1 'he ballot-box every man who open I v embraces the _ 1 Catholic faith. Thp American doctrine has been, 1 that every person should be allowed to worship God according to the- dictates of ids conscience. It would i trample this doctrine in the dustj by providing pen - id ties, in the form of prescriptive di.-abilaties, for j all who worship God in any other than tire I'iotestant ! form. s ! But enough. There can b but one answer to the - ; question we have asked. Tins know-nothing party . | is aiiti-American in its organization and internal fea tures —anti-American in its purposes—anti-Ameri can ir, its sov! and iu its substance. With its mask ~ off, it i- a bald traitor—a heartless, reckless eiterny fi ol American, institutions.

A case has just been decided by our new Su- j potior Couitui considerable interest to mer chants. It was that of Meyer KStuckvn ol .New ! York vs. John Tyler, auctioneer, of Boston.— i Win. Whiting and Edward (J. Parker lor the i | piai otitis; R. Choate, Win. Dehon, and S.J. Thorn as lor the defendant, ll grew out of the j Peverelly arson case in New York. Jt seems , that Pcvere!ly received goods on storage as his . J n ° r \ general business. Sundry hogsheads ol sugar j were thus received from the plaintiffs. The marks on them he erased, and then shipped them to Tyler, to be sold in the name of one R. Say re. On this consignment, T\ K-r, the auc tioneer, advanced, as is usual, about one third the value to the conciguor. The plaintiffs, at- j j ter the discovery ol Pevereilv's attempted burn ping'of his store by the New York police, search j ed for their merchandise, and found it in Tyler's warehouse in Boston—he refusing it up, save on payment of his entir# advances and j payments tvaJe in uerl'ect good faith. Upon t [argument, the Oriel Justice of the Superior; j Court reserved the case fur the consideration of i the Associate Judges of that Court, and they j . ' • . .V. . " ' I to-day entered judgment fur the plaintiffs for : the fol! amount claimed, with, costs, the defen dant tints losing his entire advances. It is un ' derstood (lie judgment went upon the ground , j that Pyvereily, by erasing the marks, termina- , led his '•lawful possession," so as to be unable . i thereafter to give a second consignee a lien for any advances.
