On the 291h of July, it three weeks ago, he accepted a new nonu nion from a secret order. Now, gentlemen, are you aware—can those nan" vou who honestly support Mr. Filmore, .'.• aware —what this communion and these o t,;;rations are? They are now before me atteat t; "credibly and never questioned. I shall not . t y them but call your attention to what is (T :'t niaterial, their funding the conscience to proscription and denial of political • ,ts to t hose whom the Constitution gives , " m . They purpoil to be taken in the pre pare of Almighty God (the God of the Cat ho le 3S well as of the Protestant) and they bind recipient toserresy the most implicit, even -ainst the requisitions ofthelaw. They bind I 1 A* : lim under ttie penalty ct ex-communication ia fccbfiasticnl phrase very inappropriate for from the Order, the forfeiture of all in erc use with its members, and being denoun ced as a wilful traitor to GOD and his country. 4nd * ifh this penalty, the more imposing be it has a secret terror, he swears—Mr. HLMCRE swore, and being in good standing tie still swears— ]. That he will never vote or give his indu cer for any man for any office, unless lie be a ogive burn citizen. •2. That he will never vote or give his influ ence fir any man for any office who is a Roman Catholic. 3. That he will, wlien elected or appointed loanv i flic ia I station, remove ALL Foieigners, \lritis. or Ron an Catholics from office or place. 4. That in all political matters he will com j|v with the will of the majority of this order. ' a. That irt ail political natters, and for all t.; tiral offices, he u ill support members of this .| in preference to all other persons. ••All this" Mr. Filmore voluntarily and sin firelv pmmised, "with a full understanding of ;-s ?'-,!en>nizations and penalties;" and thus pro r-j;z and thus bound to prosci ihe some and to i.i ■•■ "tie rs, and to yield his private judgment •p to irresponsible control, he asks to be eiect rii President of the United States. Nmv let us see to what practical results all thi- inevitably leads. It must not be supposed that I or an\ sane man immagine that this rrds thievous nonsense of oaths and ceremonies is likely tn lead to religions or sectarian persecu • nin its dark and revolting forms. It would i-ss dangerous if it did, for it would he easier • :' d. It would be, in the language of" vour invitation, less "insidious." But it is petty, tesitrius, little persecution. It is the perse cution which insults the religious faith of men a : irritates their temper. It makes a large c,- Jcitizens fancy themselves martyrs, and wrasses and degrades them. It is a tiap to i wience if it be a formaMtv not to he regatd -2 his unlawful, unconstitutional, tvranni (;. if t i< reality. Ido not wonder that part vl tti-obligation is to deny and disclaim mcm ■■ i[, when to admit it is to admit such mor rjradatinn as this. Pit further, on this organization rests the u stigma ofall, of having introduced ser • : Aa reiigimi into politics, and you can easily f v that operates, and what distressing jH<-nce.s, if it is to he a continuing e fo il' agitation, must attend it. Heretofore, i tr : r cnmmtmitv a! least, and I presume with > . -\ : in a candidate for public favor has pr-e --! i rs If to a part* o ttie people, the en i f'ss • ■"•n —ls he hon- st ?

Dries h- attend s(' .uncils, and has he taken and kept its Has the Older endorsed him? Is he l|r. Fillmore js) in "good standing?" This 'the new scrutiny to which American Free- ITIUS! submit tliis is the tpst that men, Z Iheaiselves A mericsns, impose, f it the mode of conducting the contest now a:;.', shows to what a (joint this soit ofen • reaches, and I beg leave to refer to it dis yas an illustration of my meaning. \o ' •were the respective nominations for the >" • iency made than the scrutiny intoreli • "pinions began at til" instigation of Mr. ■re's filends, and in strict harmony with " •ciplineof his party: and Mr. Fremont, R-publiran candidate, was charged with :iv lin.ily, education and practice, a Ro ' atholio, and the proof was adduced, fir ■sanctity of domestic life was rudely invaded - : it the ceremony of his marriage had been ling to the forms of that Church. Now e attuned that this all was so : that Mr. like Lafayette and Charles Carroll ■' 3 .'lied the Declaration of Independence, Da■:i —l Carroll who helped to frame the 'dull in of the L'uion, and William Gaston, • dii Carolina, and the present Chief Jus -1 the Lni't u (i Stales—that, like them, lie 5 3 Roman Catholic that it either was the j 2 fas fathers or that he conscientiously a -1 it, what inference could there be drawn < prejudice and what right under the Con- j of the land had any one to question li lie did profess the faith which the ■ itution of the secret order proscribes, he - 2 have turned.to the higher law of the ot the nation, and told his accusers r * very words that "no religious test could " r - iefjiiired as a qualification to anv office . ic tiust under the United States," But 'b . ?>rry to say—and this still further illus ! 3 mischief of introducing the religious "'■ inio politics— the Republican candidate •' '• and could not stand on this high and .'ground. He, too, had received what is •2i "North American" nomination. The i 3 I the s-cret paity had nominated him, 1 •i", like Mr. Fillmore, was in full comtnun ■ ,>ttd m good standing with the party that • t l '" reed the religious test, and the conse lC" Was, what we (lawyers) call "confess- j t . • av oidanre." The Roman Catholic mar- ! ; J- admitted, a suit ol communion under f . ■'• Hit all sympathy or concurrence with I "-"Was disclaimed, and as a proof of it, ■a* done by Mr. Fremont's friends, not "tries,] a certificate has been paraded ■- -it the land, to prove that his children j",^ a phzed in another church, and the names c " a ~" s °' fhe little children, and of the | a , ' 1 administering this sacred jr - i bate been widely circulated. Ifi anything were wanted to show, in the deepest colors,the effects of this new element, in utter ly demoralizing all our social and political re lations, we have it here, in such an accusation arid in such a defence. Fancy, if you can, your own family affairs thus distuibed and ex posed, and \ourselves obliged to submit to such a degrading scrutiny, and to the necessity of proving how, and by what form you were mar ried, and by whom your little children were baptized—your lelations with your God—your religious opinions and practices made the sub ject of inquisition and discussion ! Remember, too, that this sectarian crimination and excul pation does not come from Mr, Fremont's op ponents in the Democratic partv. It was Mr. fillpiore's friends that made the attack. It is Mr. F remont's friends that make the defence. I but record the fact, as proof of the tendency of this sort of sectarian politics. This is know- Nothingism, carried out legitimately. Should Mr. Fillmore be elected President of the United States and take the oath of office, which obligation will most bind his conscience and influence his action—that to support in all its parts the Constitution of the United States, including the guaranty of absolute religions liberty and freedom of conscience—or that oth er, which he took at Buffalo in a Secret Coun cil, by which he swore to make a citizen's re ligion a disqualification to office under the Con stitution ? This is a question his friends must answer. One oath or the other will have to give way. Should Mr. Fillmore b" elected President (and I am sorry to repeat the improb able conjecture) his oath of office will he ad ministered by the Chief Justice of the United States, and that Chief Justice is a Roman Cath olic—decent, conscientious, tolerant a citizen of Maryland. As his lips-,repeat the words : "\ou do solemnly swear that vou will faithful ly execute the office of President ol the United States,and will to the best of your ability, pre serve, protect and defend Hie Constitution of the United States," and the answer is, "I do"— will there be no mental reservation?—must tlmre pot of necessity, be a mental reservation in favor of that other oath, fiir more elaborate, which was taken at Buffalo, and where in the communion of sectarian fanaticism he swore in the presence of Almighty God and these wit tiessess, that he would not vote nor give his in fluence for any man for any office if he he a Roman Catholic. Who, Jet me ask, in the eye of morals, of honor, of patriotic loyalty, of political trust worthiness, stands highest the Know-Nothing President who thus swears a double fidelity, or the American Catholic who in sincerity and truth understands his single du ty to the Constitution of the land. Nor, in my humble judgment, is the proscrip tion of naturalized citizens one less objec tionable. Bear in mind that there is no part of the Know-Nothing oath that binds those who take it to labor for a modification of the natu ralization laws—it is an absolute, self-imposed obligation to proscribe a man who happens to have been born abroad, no matter if lie were brought here in hri mother's arms, ami lived here till dotage. It is the mere accident of birth that inflicts the penalty. If this be tested by any rule, it is false in morals and unsustain ed in law. It would be inappropriate to dis cuss the matter here, but I can illustrate it by a recollection that is very clear in my mind, and one that is the more interesting as it relates to one of the distant States which, in the coming contest, is claimed for Mr. Fillmore—l nr-an the State of Louisiana. lam writing to yon, gentlemen, as friends of Mr. Clay, who honored him in life and mourned his death. What, lei me ask, would he have said to any one who asked him to take an oath never to vote or ap point to cilice any one who happened to have been born abroad ? You and ! can very well fancy. But Mr. Clav lia Ia fiend once, whom he loved and honored, and whose public career in this country I desire 40 use for mv illustra tion of the f.py and* wickedness < < the intoler ant test. I iifcr to Alexander Port-r, of Lou isiana. Let me describe his career in better language than mv own, and then leave the ap plication to you. '•lt is now,"said Mr. Benton, (rum bis ( lace in the Senate, "more than the period of a fen eration— more than the third of a century since the then emigrant Irish boy, Alexander Porter, and mvself, melon the banks of the Cumberland river at Nashville, where commenced a friend ship which death only dissolved on his part.— This lad arid exile and an orphan from the Old World, thus starting in the New World, with everything to gain before it could be enjoyed, soon attained every earthly object whether brill iant or substantial for which we live ami strug gle 10 this life—honors, fortune, friends ; the highest professional and political distinction ; long a Supreme Judge in his adopted State: twice a Senator in the Congress of the United States, wearing all his honors fresh and glowing to the la>t moment of his life''—and then fol lows the great moral of this just eulogy. "And here M me say," added Mr. Benton, "and I say it with pride ayft satisfaction, our deceased bn*her loved and admired his adopted country with a love and admiration increasing with lus age, and with his belter know ledge of the coun triesofthe Old World. A few years ago, and after lie bad obtained great honor and fortune in (his country, he returned on a visit to his native land and to the continent ot Europe. It was an occasion of honest exultation for the orphan emigrant hoy to return to the land of his lather, rich in ihe goods of this life, ami clothed w itfi the honors of the American Seriate. But the visit was a melancholy one to him. His soul sickened at the state of his fellow-man irt the Old World, (I had it from his own lips,) and be returned from that visit with stronger feelings than ever of love and loyalty to his adopted country. Louisiana again elected him to the American Senate, and the American Senate in all sincerity now mourns'his death." My fellow-citizens of Somerset, I beg you to observe this illustration and apply to such a man, thus born, thus bred, thus honored and thus mourned, the rule and doctrine of Mr. !■ ill more and his party, the stern exclusiveness of tiis Buffalo oath. Such men as Alexander Por ter, of Louisiana, or Roger B. Taney, of Mary land, he has sworn not to vote for or appoint, or trust. The accident of birth determines it. No matter whether old or young when lie came here—no matter whether a child in his poor mother's arms, ornti intelligent boy on the verge of manhood—no matter whether the ties of an American wife and American children bind him to the soil —no matter whether, like Mr. Potter, when visiting his native land, lie re turned to his adopted country with new love and faith and loyalty—Mr. Fillmore has taken the first degree oath to proscribe hirn because Heaven's Built dawned upon a distant birth place, and the second degree oath to remove him from office if he happened to have gained one. I have sail that I should have the appltca- tion of this to you. Ido so, expressing not on ly the sorrow and humiliation, which, as an American citizen, I feel that at this time of day such organization and such piactices should ex ist—thai a man like Mr. Fillmore should have placed himself in this attitude—and of wonder that any where there should be found conserva tive men ami gentlemen willing to support a candidate thus voluntarily fettered. If Mr. Fillmore does not belong to this order, or rather if he never did, if he never took the oaths which I have described, or if they have ceased to be obligatory, let him say so,and the American people will do him full justice. There is noth ing degrading in such a disavowal. It is easi ly made if the facts be so. His friends forced on Mr. Fremont the necessity of a baptismal certificate and a denial of Roman Catholicism. Surely the disavowal of complicity with this se cret order is quite as becoming. Until it is made, the American people have a right to con sider Mr. Fillmore as hi> friends describe him —a Know-Nothing in full communion and good standing. I have been tempted to say thus much hv the allusion in your letter to this very subject, and trust what I have said may sink deep in your n inds. Ot the other phases of the Presidential question, 1 have not left myself room to speak. As between the Democrat ic and what are called the Republican candidates, vou know how to determine \otir choice. Jt is in my mind a simple question of Union or Disunion—and w hen Disunion comes, and the line nf the Slave States is the edge, remember where yon will he, and what w ill he the consequences to vou in a border country. 1 have elsewhere tried fo de scribe them, and shall not do it here. The footsteps of Ihe Father of his country and of the Union—the footsteps of Washington may vet he traced in Somerset County, tor it was over your soil that just one hundred years ago, he ted his little Colonial Army and I cannot per suade myself that you will door connive at any thing that w ill divide the great inheritance of Washington's glory or leave the bones of Wash ington to slumber in a foreign soil. Pennsylvania, for the first time in seventy years, presents a candidate for the Presidency of the United States—a man of the highest in telligence, the largest experience, the surest discretion, the purest personal character, and shall Pennsylvania hesitate? The Star of Em pire is moving from the East to the West.— The old thirteen States, and Pennsylvania a mong them, are becoming out of fashion, and if, when the Nation and the Democracy offer this honor to Pennsylvania, we neglect it or omit to claim it, we deserve nothing hereafter. I never have for an instant doubted and 1 do not doubt now, that Pennsylvania will be true to herself. I am, with aicere regard. Your Friigid, WILLIAM B. REED '2 h<' TrotiS)les ica liniasas. It is evident that the settlers in Kansas are discordant in their views and feelings. Some of them want to make it a slave labor State; others wish to make it a free labor State : all are stimulated by appeals and exhortations from their original homes, and hence they display an unusual pertinacity and violence in the strug gle. Wrongs and outrages have been perpetra ted by all the parties concerned nothing else could he expected from hold and rough Western Borderers, in heated political conflict. And vet to these Kansas troubles there is at tached a most disproportionate importance. Ma ny people, at the North and Sooth alike, de vote their attention to Kansas with trembling anxiety, as if its future condition were to de termine the final fate and preponderance of North and South. But the plain fact i< that Kansas is the smallest of our Territories, and its condition cannot affect any other portion of our National domain, .rlll Hieolher Territories are irrevocably devoted to free while labor. 11 Kan sas become a fi ee State—as is quite certain in any event—then all the United States Territory will be tree from slave labor. Now, in the lig t of these facts, how absurd and preposter ous is the clamor ov. r Kansas. Its future w ill tie fixed bv circumstances and its own people. Pi evidential Election-, and President ial Cam paigning cannot and will not control Kansas or its future. Just now.
