So the "Union" about which we have heard so n.iich lias blown up like soap bubbles in the hands of children, and we are to have a regular built dog tight between the_Fil!rpore National Know-Nothings and the Fremont Abolition Know-Nothings, the re sult 01 which will foot up a majority lor General PACKER, the Democratic nominee, over either, of at least One Hundred Thousand, and Fifty Thousand over BOTH! The candidates for county offices and lor the Legislature, in the nppo-itioti ranks, will he hound to show their hand in this game, and stani! or lall with one or the other of their State Tickets, for no National Know Nothing v. II touch an Abolition Know Nothing with a ten-loot pole—neither will an Abolition Know Nothing hold any fellowship with one who stands on the Filtnore Platform ! Now, in view of the disgraceful position thu~ presented bv these factions, what will the honest t reemen r. Bedford county do? We think it fair to presume that about three-fourths of them will vote a clean de mocratic liekef, and they are cordially invited to do "it is currently reported that there will be an at 'erupt to pass resolutions finough the Democratic State Convention whieh meets at Harrishnrg to-inor row, condemnatory of the sale of the Maine Line." I J €Nf'iylvaniaa, Jan,' S. BCyWe trust the ti'tra ' was not only made to pass such resolutions, but that they were p i--e.j bv acclamation, wtiicli will be in aceoi lance with the voice of the entire Democratic press of "Pennsylva nia, if we except those of Philadelphia. Should the Supreme Court grant the injunction asked for, as we nope and trust it will, the rallying cry of the Democ racy in the r.ext campaign will be "PACKER AND REPEAL,' and, wit|, this as our motto, we may safely calculate upon a majority of at least fifty thousand over all opposition. Talk about the ",E./ legislature hting rety.nuxilte to the -who ' • propl. ." a body that commenced its operations in black treason and ended them amidst The curses and execrations of an indignant and betrayed constituency. Ridiculous! Sectarianism ;s£d Are the two elements which now stand arrayed a gamst the Democracy, as forcibly remarked bv tin New York Daily News. We turn from the first ap pearance of civil v>u arm r.,i.i, uIT 10 taw in *•■ by the art of the Abolitionists, to the recent scenes of blood which sickened the heart ol the Patriot at A astungton City. On one side Sect ot ifiwo WWilt the Union, would rend the North trom South, a: i defy the strong arm of the Federal Government to protect trie great bond which rnake c ns on.* .saiiou, whilst, on the other, that narrow and exclusive spir it which discriminates between the native and adop ted citizen, artays neighbor against neighbor a. ' family against family. Nativeism was i in riot and baptized in the blood of innocent victims, as all know who remember the Church-burning in Phila delphia and the rcenes which followed in its train. — Two years ago, similar outrages were perpetrated in Louisville, Cincinnati, New Orleans and other large cities—last fall Baltimore fell a prey to the blightii g scourge—and only a few day ■ since it made its maik in blood at the National Metropolis ! Now we ask all candid men, what i= there to in duce you to act with such dangerons factions, when you have the Democratic Flag to rally under—the principles of which are clearly defined in the follow ing beautiful illustration of What sk Democracy ' , " DEMOCRACY represents the great principles of progress, it is onward and out ward in its movements, It has a heart fir ac hHl and motive.? for a world, it constitute? the principle of diffusion and is to humanity what the centrifugal iiirce is to a revolving orb of a universe. What motion is to them. Democracy i>to principle. It is the soul of action. It conforms to the providence of (>ol. It has confidence it) man and an a' i.iing reliance in his high destiny. It seeks the largest liberty, the greatest good and the surest hani mess. 1; aims to build up the great interests ot the many, to the least detriment of the few. It remem bers the past, without neglecting the present. It establishes the present, without fearing to provide for the future, it car*'? for the weak, while it permits t.o injustice to the strong. It conquer? the oppressor, ant; prepares the subject of tyranny for freedom. It nieits the bigot's heart to meekness, and reconciles his niiud to knowledge. It dispels the cloud of ignorance and superstition, and prepares the people for in struction and self-respect. It adds wisdom to legislation, and improved judgment to govern ment. It favors enterprise that yields to many, and an industry that is permanent. It* is the pioneer of humanity—the conservator ofnations. I R FAILS ONLY WHEN IT MM-KS TO HE TUCK TO ITSELF. The Sale of the Main Line. In the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, on Satur day, application was made by the Board of Canal .Commissioners lor a preliminary injunction to. re strain the Pennsylvania Railroad Company from pur chasing the Main Line of the Public Works of the State, and the Court appointed Friday the 12th inst., for the bearins of the motion, in banc, at Harris burg. The sale is to take place on the 25th inst.— The following is the Order ol Court made on Satur day : Henry 8. Mott et. al. Canal Commissioners vs. the Pennsylvania Central R. R. Company, et. al. in the Supreme Court in equity. Middle Di-trict. ' And now, June 6th, 1857, on reading the bill of com plaint, Kc.. and on motion of W. L. Hirst, James H. Walton, C. R. Buckalew and William ?■!. Mere dith, counsel for complainants, it is ordered that the complainants have leave to move the Court in banc at Harri.tiurg, on the 12thtSf June inst., at L o'clock A.

V OITKIUi:! 0../' We pobli-h to-day full accounts of one ot the most fiendish and bloody riots that has ever dis graced our country, emanating from a band of assas sins in the employ ol the Know Nothing organiza tion existing in the city of Baltimore, kept np for the purpose of '-regulating the elections" in that and other large cities' Our accounts are copied from ! three sources—the Star (neutral) —Union (democra tic)—and Intelligencer (old-line Whig)—a paper which is considered a political Bible by our oppo nents, and whose statements they will not dare dis credit. All three agree in their description ol the horrible affair, and fasten it not only upon the cut throat "Plug Uglies" but upon Know Nothings who stand at the head of the party in Washington, and who brought them there, paying their expenses, and entertaining them as guests to do the butchery which followed ! Nothing but the appearance of the 1 . S. Troops saved the city from becoming a prey to the infuriat ed Mob. The promptness and decision which cha ! tr'erized the conduct of the President proves him eminently worthy the high trust conferred upon him by the American people. Hail he hesitated -ICO or a iOi'U lives might have been sacrificed and the city laid in ashes! Mr. BUCHANAN is applauded for j his course by all law-abiding citizens throughout the land. Even the N. \ . Herald, the leading organ of the opposition in the United States, compliments the < i.ief Magistrate in eloquent terms. The editor says : "1 he prompt action oi Mr. Buchanan in ordering out the Marines to vindicate the law and sanctity of the ballot-box at Washington was a movement in I respon-ct to the appeal ol the Mayor which every in telligent and law'-loving citizen most approve. The exumpre is a good one—the occasion was a proper one tor the example—and as a guide to our law-olfi eers, and a- a warning to election ruffians, in all such cases for the future, we trust that this good precedent set by the President will be boiue in irnnd by all p.uties concerned.'" ' , Si,EIGHT OF HWD PERFORMANCES. As we predicted a lew weeks since, i'r. Jordan "Chairman," .vc. has commenced Ins political Jug glery and "Sleight o: Hand" movements! lie starts out with the announcement that the qualified voters oi the "American" parly in the several Boroughs and 1 o'.vnslnps ( except those townships and Borough- where delegates have been ACREAI)'. CHOSEN) will meet and choose delegates on the -7th nit. who will meet in Bedford on the 'id day oi July to nominate a County 1 icket. Now. mark the treachery, low-cunning and deceit! Jordan pietends to be an "American," and to speak tor that party, whilst every K. N. in the county knows that he dis gracelully abandoned it last fall and "united" with the Fremont Abolitionists, and is now supporting the Abolition State Ticket, with W'iimot at it- bead, in opposition to the American State Ticket. He not on ly turned traitor to the "American" party, but he did so under circumstances > i the n.i anest character, a all w ill remember. Piol'essing an ardent attachment lor 1 ilrnore, bis political friends in the country could not be made believe that he was secretly Working lor ! resnont, and only aweke to their delusion when ( liaries Gibbous, the Abolition Chairman, exposed his contemptible letter, in w bich ! e said, •von are a ' oti.e too last —:t will injure in i.-re on the State ' and county i icket it our plot for the tian-fer of the ' i i! more to the i remont taction gets out prior to the October election I These facts are familiar to all ' with whom lie lormeriy acted, and it remain- to be ' seen how far they will follow inm in th? second edi- ' tion oi his dirty work, thus put under way. If the : "Arr.ericuii party" are true to their p rife-si oils thev 1 will teach him a les-on he will not readily forget. Alter the humiliating expo-ures of last fall, who can believe a word Jordan utters on a political sub- 1 jert. unit-- they ■ .sow it to be f true maujybq f that be could not vote for a certain candidate for Se nator of the United States without "throwing away his GT SKLF-RF.SPF.CT" and "VIOLATING bis 1 OATH,", arid-a- few months afterwardsturn round ' and vote lor him forthe same place, without a word of ' explanation, A too "Ugly a Plug" to be longer tole- ! inted in the political circle- of this community. "Tli -re is not political character enough in the man to impose upon credulity itself." What u shame that so ret bless a weather-cock should be made the ste reotyped chairman and organ of a party ! But we lean, from the call above alluded to that some of the "delegates" have already been eho-en. When and where the public are not informed. We have inquired of some of the candidates, and they tell ns that they know of none such having been se lected. Is it pos-ible, can it he, that tin* delegates who were manufactured in cellars and garrets, under oath, at midnight, two or three years -nice, are to be the men who are to decide between the pretensions oi' the jliflererit candidates to be voted mr next fall, when ail the important offices are to he tilled? If so, w hat honest man will fetl bound lo support a norni tioti so made? Mr. Jordan winds up his call with Hie assertion - 'Under Hie new Apportionment Bill we can elect bulb our Senator and Representatives." Now, the people have become so nauseated with tin- system of deception that it has become a standing theme for iidicule. Why, in every speech made by Jordan la-t lull be prophecied the overwhelming success ol the "Union Ticket" in Bedford county—he had no doubt about the election of the Republican candidate lor Congress in this District bv a monster majority and, in old Southampton Township, at the close o. the campaign, rui-ing himself on tip-toe, looking wondrous wi-e, be declared that the Union State Ticket would have u majority of at least Thirty Thousand in Pennsylvania, and said, with great em- : phasis—"BOYS DO YOU HEAR THAT!" Well, be was mistaken in bis calculations of the county, district, state, and union, and those who put any faith ! in his present prediction will find themselves equally deceived. When will the mass' of our opponents assume sufficient independence To spurn the leader ship of demagogues who treat them as though they were mere children incapable of distinguishing be tween right and wrong—truth and falsehood t APPORTIONMENT RILE. ",~'We stated, week before last, that Bedford and Somerset, and Armstrong and Westmoreland, were almost the only double districts in the apportionment bill, and the lacts sustain the assertion. Of ail the districts comprising more than one county these are nearly the only ones that po.eesssed the requisite number of taxabtes within their re-pective limits for a separate representation, and Mr. Jordan should be ashamed to say any thing to the reverse. The hang ing of these counties together was a gross outrage upon a fair apportionment, and is so viewed by men of candor, of all parties.

THE WASHINGTON RIOTS. The National Intelligencer, an old-line \V big ,aper, celebrated for its fairness anil lion, sty, rives the following account of the disgraceful -lection riots in Washington citv, on Monday : When yesterday morning we gave expression 1,., our belief that the election of that day would

!,e marked by general quiefness dnd freedom frotii disorder, we were never iwre sincere.— During the preceding four or five weeks which comprised the canvass nothing like intempe rance or bitterness of lee ling on the subject ol the election was visible in any quarter amongst us, although it was evident enough that each ol the parti -s seeking the c mtrol of the city gov ernment would do their best in a legitiu.at* way to gain their [mint. Of course we could not suppose that any ar rangements had been made for the introduction of bands of intrusive strangers from abroad to interfere with the full and free exercise of that very moderate share of voting which falls to the !>t of citiz°ns in tins District, i v the ear liest train yesterday morning, anil, it is believ ed by the subsequent train, hands of ill-looking men, mostly a year or two under age, with the generic and suggestive title ot "''log trglies, arrived from Baltimore, crowding our side walks, and exhibiting, by their manner and speech, how well their employers had calcula ted in bringing them on to do any work that was designed to be criminal and disorderly. The first fruits of this villainous importation were manifested between ft and 10 o'clock at the first precinct of the fourth ward. There can be no doubt that all was quietly proceed ing, the voters being drawn up in a line, each patiently waiting his turn, when a sudden at tack was made on a naturalized citizen in the rank of voters, and an eff.rt made to drive all such from the polls. In this onslaught, and the defence which was necessitated by it, seve ral serious wounds w.-re indicted as well upon native as naturalized citizens. !be result i t this was that naturalized citizens were compell ed to <ave limb and life by a general retirement from the scene : and it is a matter of certainty that fear and disgust at such doings I ave combi ned materially to dimmish the vote that wouiu have ot lit* r wist* polU j tl About half past ten o'clock the imported rowdies appeared at the lower precints of t-.e second ward, and there fired a 1 out a ! - v ~ t..l sle ts, one of them taking effect on the f.uv h ad of a bvstander. It was a matter ••! n ishment to not a f- vv that these impudent distur bers of tbe peace were thus allowed to range op and down without molt station. Representations having i made to the Mavorof the utter inability of the p !me jn I magistracy to keep the polls op -n at the first precinct of the fourth ward to all classes of vo ters, he deemed it proper to apply to the Resi dent of tile United States lor an .1 '.equate 1 irce for that purpose The latter was referred by the 1 resident .0 the Secretary of the Navy, who promptly pla ced 1 10 Marines, under the command of M qor Tyler and Captain Maddux, at the dispell of the citv. They were accordingly marched to the aforesaid precinct, Gen. Henderson, 01 tue same corps, accompanying the party in citizens dress. Ib-fare the Marines left their barracks, General Henderson addr-s.wd them as fellows: "Soldiers, you have alwavs done your duty in the face of the enemies < f yonr cmnt-v ; I ex pect von now to do your duty its uj. holding Jim laws of vour country, quietly, but firn.lv. me ■ in ten staler military become known than a number of young men, constantly increasing as Ih *v went along, got poss.->i >n ola six }'.-under bras-- swivel, and hitching a long cord to it, dragged it along Pennsylvania avenue am! up seventh street, with the eh;- ,t, as avowed by their adherents, of resisting the Marines. — On arriving near the polling place of the tust precinct ot the fourth ward, the Marines found the snivel party oil the ground, with their ph-ce posted on the sidewalk, under the sh-d ui the Northern Liherti-.-s Market. The Mavor walked up to the closed window of the polling place and gave the order to open (lie polls {which had been suddenly closed, . we presume, when tbe marines appeared) and resume voting, to which theordv r.q !v received was from persons, outside, who declared, using nine!) personal abuse, that the polls should not be opened. I'he Mavor then took a command ing position and proceeded to address the c rowd, amounting to about twelve or filteen hundred persons in a state ol maddened excitement.— The Mibrt mce of the .Mayor's remarks was that of admonition to good order and quietness and the resumption of voting, calling u|K>n those present a-- good citizens to restrain themselves within proper limits. In answer to complaints that the Marines were brought, the Mayor assu red the m-sr mhlnge that Ihev were brought fir no hostile puij rs but to [ lotect citizens in the exercise < I th> ir rights and elective privileges. Instead of quelling the passion and tumult of the crowd, the Mayor's presence and remarks seemed to have the effect only of exasperation, which was exhibited in every firm of menacing violence short of actual personal assault. The jartv on the oi p. site side of the street, and about seventy or eighty yards above, were at this time in a state of excessive agitation,; bustling about in the most violent way, and ma king demonstrations as to their purpose with their pi'-ce of artillery. At this' in.e the order 1 was given to disarm the party oi their piece,; and a section of the marines, under Major Ty ler,advanced w-ith fixed bayonets for the pur pose. This movement induced the abandon ment of the cannon, and the retirement of the partv from if. I'hev dealt, however, upon the soldiers in return, volleys of stones and revolver shots. The marines on taking the cannon se- j cured it in their hollow square, themselves the ; while being fired upon and cue ol ttu-ir party j shot through the jaw. He was immediately j taken up l>v Dr. Boyle, placed in his carriage, and conducted awav. His wound is quite se- I vere. The order was then given the marines j to fire, which they did. Two persons immedi- j at.-ly fell on Massachusetts avenue, and in oth- 1 er directions many were shot, several mortally. The crowd was now in full flight in all cii- ; reclions, leaving the field to the soldiery, who did not, howver, long remain at the spot, hut were marched back to the City Hall. Later in I the day the) Wrie taken to the railroad depot to receive ar.il if necessary to take charge of an i expected reinforcement of "Plug Uglies" from Baltimore, but who wisely kept at home. Of killed we are able to pronounce, we be- i lieve with certainty as to Mr. Allison, a con stable aged 56 years; George jVlcE'fresh, Mr. p. M. Deems, a clerk in the General Land Of fice, and formerly of Cumberland, Md ; Archi l-aid Dalrvmple, a baggage-master on the Balti ifimc and Ohio Railroad a colored man named Ratify Ncale, of the Northern Liberties, a:u! a noth**r colored man from Georgetown named j Redding. Mr. Eoenezei Hughes was very se verely injured and may have died. We learn also thai an infant child was killed on English Hill earlier in the day by one James Slat fort!. who himself was afterwards shot in the shoui- 1 der and neck. A young man, Charles Spencer,; was wounded with a revolver bullet : and a t,other named Middleman, said to have been ac tive in tlie disturbance, was stiuck with a ball. Others, more or less severely wounded, were a young man named McGlue, and a youth named Adams, who was carried to the Infirmary. Col. Wilson, of Texas, was shot in the shoulder, but not dangerously. I About three o'clock the polls at the distui ueu precincts were re-opened and contin'ieu <>n! 11 the legal hour of closing. The "Plug f glms S finding themselves Ifss pleasantly received than they had anticipated, slilv stole aw ay bom th** city, some byway of a walk to Hiadensburg, and others bv jumping on the railroad train at the last moment before starting. Their pres i ence tiere and their abettors are openly and ; generally denounced, and it is well for them that they escaped. In consequence ol the violent thi eats utter'* !iv many to avenge their discomfiture on the p*ers ns-of the Mayor, the military officers, the magistrates, the marines, and even on the pub lie property, it was deemed a proper precaution ; to [..ring hither an auditi >nal lorce ol '< nited States 11oops. This, therefore, was done last evening, and a strong bodv ot Major Trench s El from Fort McHenry arrnvo at f) o'clock by railroad Pom Baltimore. The Star gives a list of seven killed and twen : tv-eight wounded. 1 " All that w ere killed or wound. <1 with one or two exceptions among the wounded, were i peaceable citizens, passing by or looking quiet ! ly n.

Chi that day an e iettion was held in this city f>r municipa. offi cers. There were two tickets in the field: the one sup] oiled by the Know - Nothings, and the other by the Union party, composed ol Demo crats ami Old-Line Wings. The polling pro ceeded, and on all sides it is conceded that the that the election should lie conducted in a peace able and equitable manner, and that aii who were hga ly entitled to vote should exercise the privileges of the elective franchise in the freest manner. Bv neither word not deed or: that fatal dav <!i.i they attempt to nib-Mere, di rectly or indirectly, with the rights of their op ponents. While quietly exercising one ol the highest privileges of citizens, what was the conduct of the Know-Nothings, or at least a j-:r --tion of that dangerous organization ? \nxious to disturb the peace, and thus prevent a lair ex pression of the public voice, and yet atiai'.l that thev had not strength enough, or ferocity eu'ugh to mri v out successfully their mobish, mrrdcr- j ous purposes, they engage ihe services of a gang of d< sperate ruflians in tl.e neighboring city of Baltimore, bring them to Washington and let ' them loose upon our peaceable inhabitants.— With what fidelity they carried cut the infa mous instructions of their employers, last Mon ' day's bloody work will fully attest. In a few hours after their arrival tin* whole city was com pletely at the mercy of a mob. They had full j p -ssessioti of one voting precinct, and were prepared to take possesion of other precincts.— Inoffensive citizens had been shot, stabbed, and as-suited wit h murderous mi.-sles. 1 he* police lorce, small in numbers, but resolute in spirit, had been literally driven offthe ground: and it hi-cameapparent to all that, without the prompt interposition of the military, tie* frightful scenes of' Louisville and New Orleans would be re-en acted her,-on a still morn fiightful scale. In this eiiieigencv, the Mayor sought and obtained the much-needed aid lo protect the lives and property of our citizens. Not a trigger was nulled until it was evidsnt that further forbear ance would be attended with the most appalling i results. The firing oft ho Marines was in reali ty an act of humanity. The rioters dispersed, order was restored, arid the supremacy of the j law acknowledged and maintained. And vet Mr. Lloyd tells his hearers to be preparer! for the next attack. What does this counsel mean if it does not mean, "Arm your selves ! cut, stah,-hoot down citizens peaceably and law fully exercising one of their dearest privileges; and if the military are called out to stay your bloody, murderous work, see that you have arms enough and ammunition enough to make a successful resistance." Mr. Lloyd, and all who think with Mr. Lloyd : will soon discover, if they have not already discovered, that the time has gone by in this I city when such advice can be safely given or j successfully followed. We have more faith in ' the prevention than the putting down of mobs: [and the inciters of riots cannot be too soon tatft that they are as much amendable to the law- as it they actually took part with their wretched tools arid dupes. From the Cumberland Allegaman. THE COIBERLAM) VICTIM. In connection with the Washington riots, it becomes our painful duty to record the death of our former fellow townsman, F. M. Deems, Esq. more recently employed as a clerk in the Gen eral Land Office. We knew him w ell and it al most makes our heart sick to chronicle his un timely end. Mr. Deems was a whole-souled, - generous and honorable man, known personally to many of our citizens, who admicd him for} rw-sllHl ■■■ 1111113MMW...11...JH1. hi many estimable qualities, and among whrith the announcetnput cl his death has awakened the keenest regret and most painful sympathy. It appears that he had not at all participated in the disturbances of the day, but had hetn out of the Land Office hut a lew minutes, and was qui etly passing fiom one side of the street to the other,somewhere in the vicinity of the riot, and when about midway of the street, fell, pierced hv seven bullets—six of them taking effect in his hre:is(, and one penetrating his cheek.— That Mr Deems was shot down bi/tke mob, is ev ident from the fact that his wounds were exam ined and found to have been made by pistol balls though some would endeavor lo n ake us believe that he had been struck by chance shots, fired by the Marines, who had been ordered out by tire Mivor to quell the riot ions demonstrations, ami who (sav Hie opposition pi ess) "tired indis criminately among the crowd." That he was made a mark of is equally certain from the num ber of shots that took effect in his body. Why be should have been selected as a victim, we cannot positively tell, vet the conviction forces itself upon our mind that the mercenary wretch es who went from Baltimore to forcibly deprive good and peaceably-disposed citizens of the ria-lil of suffrage, marked him out because of his uncompromising hostility lo Know-Nothiugism arid its disreputable teachings. His ren.ains were brought to this city for interment, and were followed to their last resting place on Wednes day last, by a gondlv number of our citizens*. What shall we sav of those who have thus openly violated thV laws of then countiy and t ieir God ? Th- fact that they were a band of Know-Nothing rowdies, cannot be controverted, and that parties in W ashing fan had engaged their services for the purpose of "tegulatmg the election," is equally obvious. For proof of Ibis we subjoin the following significant paragraph from the "National Intelligencer," a paper that has maintained entire impartiality in the ul fair- , * ... . , "The grave events ol Monday wdl weigh up on the public mind ol our city, and no inteLi .rence equals in interest the recital of circum ces concerning it. Every hour almost discloses some new fact or throws some new light upon its secret history. There seems to be no teasou to doubt that the 'J'lug Ugly" bands were ini puitr-d by prior engagement Irom Baltimore,and that their fair between the two cites was paid bv persons here,; lor how could any body, who, on scrutinizing the materials of those bands as they patrolled our streets, for a moment suppose that they themselves would or could have in curred the expenses attendant on the journey * It is obvious that, whatever was their will lo come they had not the means. It absolute proof was required, it w ill he found in the UCL that their eating was provided for them 111 a mass; why and for what services to be ren dered it will be for their introducers to ex plain." . . , , ~ . What language is sufficiently emp na.ic. re buke those, who, not content with having made Baltimore notorious with their ravts of valence and dis <rder, and having rendered it the terror ,'f all cood and law-abiding citizens, satiated with the bloodshed within their own limits, must forsooth extend their scene of action into the capitol'of the nation, and there enact scenes, at the recital of which the w hole country stanus aghast with terror. _ . . . "it is a humiliating reflection for citizens ot Maryland to know that the unrebuked dUtutMD ces 'the unpunished lawlessness, the unavenged bloodshed whit b have marked the history of our own metropolis for the past few years, have gain ed for her the title of "the city of assassins. in , .ii' ot me VTtgli* h0t..., nl* Dulliitrttrf, she should have been among the first to discounte nance these acts of lawlessness and disoider. — It is a well known fact that bands of ruffians control her elections hv levolvers anil suig-auot that peaceable citizens are shot down in open dav—that a farce is made of the right ol suffrage and tliat the fair fame of the City of i\l nu ments has been blackened by the overt arts of villains than whom many less deserving id, punishment have been incarcerated in the pen itentiary. or expatiated their crimes upon the gibbet. How long this state of things is to continue, we know not. Hew long these Plug bgly, Rip Rap, and Blood Tub miscreants are to go ua u hipt of justice, is for the law-abiding citizens to sav. It is a fact worthy of note, that until the organization of Know Nothing councils, these riotous demonstrations at elections were not manifested. These are but the results of the vindictive spirit in which it asserts its doctrines. —but tip- fruits of the fearful passions amused by its teachings. Fiie same stale ot things..as followed the formation of secret political socie ties everywhere, and demonstrates beyond a doubt that their tendency is to deprive the peo ple oftheir liberties, and render their lives and property unsafe. And yet there are some, who endeavor to ex cuse these acts, or fasten the blame irjion the in nocent, though the mass of the people olali par lies condemn them as heartily and denounce the participants in a strong terms as we do. The shameless effrontery of such men indicate that they are lost to all sense of right, and she d he frowned upon by our high-minded, bonoiaLle and fair-dealing citizens.
