SFIRII OF TBI XO&XIIQ PEKBP Tbo Union again applies the scalpel to Mr. Speaker Banks, and In regard to the sugges tion of Mr. Backs as to the substitution of a military despotism for the present Constitu tional Union, says: "? When properly understood, there is noth ing new in Speaker Banks'* position ; it is but the legitimate and practical conclusion de duced from the well-known purpose of the Black Bepnblican organisation. The avowed object of every Fremont leader i3 tbat the North shall rule the South , and this purpose is boldly justified up< n tbo ground that the North is numerically stronger than the South, and ought t# govern upon the priaeiplo that the majority in a republic has a right to rule. It is by the perversion of this sound Demo cratic maxim that lilrck Republicanism eovers its warfare upon fifteen Southern States It commence* by laying down principles whieh cannot bo carried out without ruin to the Southern State?, and, therefore, effectually excludes All these States from its organiza tion. No Black Republican will deny that the object of his organization is to combine the public eentiment of the sixteen free States, and secure a President, Congress, and judi ciary, which Will administer the goverc^nent upon principles that are hosttte to the institu tions of the fifteen Southern States. That the constitution ever contemplated such an ad ministration of the government", no one of can dor will pretend. We suppose that Speaker Banki wa?ovatemplating the ultimate trinmph of his party When be said he could conceive of a time when this constitution will not bo in j existence. That time will have arrived when I the Presidency, Congrew, and the Supreme Court ihail be filled by Black Republicans " The Intelligencer, in doelining (in answer to the request of a correspondent) to publish fhe Richmond speech of John M Botts on ac count of its great length, adds: 41 Nor would any fragmentary extracts from the speech do justice to theoonsecutive logic and distinctive trafti of the distinguished speaker, with the general soundness of whose political views, as presented in this speech, we fully concur, aa we have done on many former occasions, when, as it seemed to us, he brought no less of truth than of admitted bold ness to the declaration and defence of hia po litical sentiments. Mr Botts is emphatically one of those men who, in a quaint butexpress ive phrase. ?? have the courage of their opin ions, ' and never hesitates to give the reasons for the faith that is in him. Indeed, with superior ability, his striking feature is manli ness. No one, we are sure, could read the speech before us without admiration for the political intelligence of its author as well as tor the earnestness of that "ignited logic" which manifests the presence of orofound con victions. as honestly entertained as they are resolutely defended." WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP. A Bcformcd Enow Nothing.?At a political meeting held in Carroll county, Md., we see that one of the principal speakers was an ex Kn ;W Nothing by the name of Eraus, (surely not our own French S. trans') who mado a clean breast of his recent principles and prac tices, and. in so doing, stated his belief that he was justified in making an exposure of that organization by the example eet him by our forefathers?the men of the Revolution?who, after swearing an allegiance to King George III., found it necessary, by a series of acts of oppression passed upon them, to prt cJaim that they owed no further allegiance to his Majesty, and hence dissolved the political bonds that associated them with his govern ment. For six months he had met privately and in secret the Order of Know Nothings, tbe original design of wbich was that none but those who were members should know of the existence of the Order; but, failing ti effect that object by strength of numbers, the project was abandoned. He had read in ih* Penn*yU;aiiian*n<i other kindred prints in politics, the rituals of the Order, which were correctly reported, and wherever mch bad been mado public, to the evident shame and disgrace of the Order, it was found necessary to change or modify these rituals, or substitute new ones in their stead During his membership of the Order, be was often suspected, interrogated, and set upon with a view to obtain a knowledge of his mem bershif, or pursued with a \ iew to ascertain tbe Ordor's whereabouts, but from frequent disguises which he had to assume to escape the recognition of even his own offspring, he had deluded their dotection. He was ashamed of himself, and he believed that the ethers who were associated with him were equally ashamed. He was taught to pervert the English language?to lie to his neighbor and family when questioned upon the subject It* principles he clearly saw, at last, were de structive of the chief ends of government, and that everything done sought to deprive bis ne-ghbor, and perhaps his dearest friend, of equal political rights with himself. He could not, when a member, vote for bis own father, to binding was the obligation they had taken, unless he perjured himself Ho regarded a true member as much a slave as that of the veriest aJave of tbe blaokest de spots of Europe. He had no rights. They were virtually sworn away. To add to the ignominy of their acta, this same Order was opened wit'a prayer! Finally, he Would venture to say that, ere ten years should roll round, every man who respected himself would be ashamed to ao knowledge that he had ever been a member of the Order. Such is Knew Nothiagism, as painted by a disciple * Newt!?A telegraphic dispatch in tbe Bal timnre papers says: "The President will leave here (Washington) on Tuesday morning, for New Hampahire lha mounted guard will escort him from the White House," etc This is the first time we have heard that the President ha, a mounted guard ! Fortunately, such a period in our hi.tory ha, not yet arrived, and we trust never will come. The error in the announcement arises from the fact that there is a dragoon corps christened bv th*m selves "The President's Mounted Guard '? I and they have declined to change the nun. ^though Colonel Hickey, the ?ommatider of the regiment of tho District of Columbia, long ago euggested to them the propriety of so doing. The President has no more to do with these Mounted Guards than he has with the German Yagers, or any other voluntocr militia * ttl-auy. The name of ? The President's oun ed Ouard is merely complimentary to the Executive effic?. The only <jUard ereatcd for the protection iJ ?T T""?uL." ? iltV" ?h"g'? v*' ">? ???? of Pntldut Tjl.r, (who w?

Greeley Gives It Up ?The Now York Tri butes, of Saturday, is despondent. It makes a survey of the political horiion, and tho re- | suit is not satisfactory. Hear its joremiade : " H e do not wish our readers to believe the election of Fremont a fixed fact. We do not ourselves believe it, and should not desire to diffuse tho unpre;sion if we did. We wish it generally understood that the struggle is ar duous, and that the result depends on work yel to be done. In spite of many cheering assurances, we consider the States of Penn sylvania, New Jersey, Indiana, Illinois, and California still doubtlul. We may carry all of them by large majorities, but we may also loso enough of them to beat us in the contest We consider our chance in the House, should the election go thither, of very little worth. We must succeed, if at all, by the votes of the people; we cannot count on a einglo slave State ; snd wo must either carry Pennsylva nia, or losing it. carry all the rest of tho free States. We strongly hope to carry Pennsyl vania?we feel sure it can be carried for Fre mont?but, if ho wero all to stop working now, and full to shonting over our anticipated victory,-we should have no victory to husza over. This is the naked truth, and the truth is just what should be eel forth and realized. Should we lose Pennsylvania, w# may possi bly succeed without her; but that, like the choice of Fremont by the House, is only a chance If we carry Pennsylvania, it is bare ly possible that we shall fail to carry States enough to gives us the victory." Does not this look like a purpose on the part of tho Tribune to let itself down eo9y in view of coming defeat7 We took occasion lately to Bhow from the files of the Tribune prior to the Presidential elcotion of 1.S&2, that its political prophesies, however unreliable* were not uharactcrized by timidity. The Tri bunt evidently sees that the pacification of Kansas has taken away its political capital* and that tho Fremont bubble which Went up like a rocket is now coming down like a stiok. Bogus Dispatches ?The Southside (Va.) Democrat of Saturday sayt: " A dispatch waB published in the morning papers yesterday, announcing that letters hai been received at Washington to the effect that the cause of Puchanan being hopeless in New York ; the Democrats intend to fuse with the Know Noth ings and give the State to Fillmore." And remarks : "This was too big a bolus for an or dinary throat to swallow." We would warn our friends throughout the country to be on the lookout for political dispatches, as, doubt less, from now untH the Presidential election, tho newspapers opposed to the Democracy will teem with them. It is due to ray, however, that tho dispatch alluded to by the Soutkside Democrat, according to the result of our in quiry, did not emanate from the agent of the Associated Press of this city. The President of the United States, in his letter of the sixteenth instant, to the officers and members of the New Hampshire Agricul tural Society, (who say that they will bo happy to welcome him to the city of his resi dence, and receive him as the guest of the Society,) remarks that ho expects ?? soon to bccome a farmer, and to devote the residue" of hid " days mainly to agricultural pursuits within" the "comparatively hard and sterile, but nevertheless" to him " attractive and be loved State." 7 he Editor of the Star was in Philadel phia on Sunday, and left that city this morn ing for Bclf jnte, Contre county, Pennsylvania in continuation of his political movements, under the direction of the Stato Democratic Committee.

The cdifice wai crowded at each hour for service by attentivo audicnoefi to hear the able discourses of the ministers (Messrs Lanahan, Rogers and Brown,) who addressed them. The services were of a sol emn and impressive character, and was at tended in the afternoon by a large number of white persons. This venerable temple was first dedicated forty years ago, but so thor oughly has it been modernised, both internally and externally, that if some of the old saints who firct woi&hippcd in it could now take a peep at it they would not recognize it as the same building. The collections during the day amounted to tho handsomo littlo sum of $275.

At the Republican Convention which assem bled at Springfield, lion. John Woed, Mayor

of Quincy, was nominated for Lieutenant Gov ernor of Illinois, in place of Mr Hoffman, who declined. John G. Montgomery, Esq , of Danville, Pa , has been nominated for Congress by the Dem ocrats of the Twelfth district of Pennsylvania. The counties of Luserne, Columbia, and Mon tour compose the distriot. The Newport (R. I.) News, which endorsed the nomination of Mr. Fillmore immediately after it was mrde at Philadelphia, but refused to extend the right hand of fellowship to Mr. Donelaon, has filially concluded to go the whole ticket. It ij denied that lion. Theodore Freling huysen haa come out for Fremont Mr. Frelinghuysen has not avowed his preference for Fremont, but on the contrary he Iiot said to Prof. Theodore Strong, of Rutgers College, that he cannot support him.

It Is as follows : "Fremont was in Congress, indeed. He served in the Senate twenty-one days?mace two speeches?said once yes?once no?and that's his political history." Emigration from Virginia ?We regret that several of our Western exchanges announce a considerable emigration of Virginia farmers to the West. Our emigrants arc generally men of substance, and carry with them a cor ? siderable amount of worldly goods, which, with their personal enterprise and fine intelli gence, goej to enrich ana build up other com munities Their departure is a serious loss to the good old State But unless our system of improvement is pushed on to the Ohio, or s tme guarantee afforded for its prosecution, we may expect this emigration to be vastly incroased ?Richmond Dispatch. Thk Burning of the Mount Vernon Ho tel?a Paintvl Rumor.?The Philadelphia Inquirer says that they have had an interview with a gentleman who resides at Cape May, who informs them that it is now the general impression thero, that Mr Cain, the father of the Cain family, who were burned up by the destruction ot the Mount Vernon Hotel, wan murdered and robbed before the hotel wis sot on firo. The jewelry of all the mem bers of the family was found near the chared remains, but not a dollar of gold or silver coin has been recovered, and there is every reason to believe that there aas considerable in their posies*ion. Young Cain, who escaped from the hotel, bat was so badly burred that he died soon afterwards, Rlleged that he saw a man in his room when he left it The remains of the girls were found near those of the father, and it is inferred, from their peculiar position, that they were alto murdered, This portion of the family could not have retired to their rooms, as the contents of their pockets, Ac , wore found near them. ^SCHOOL AND MISCELLANEO VS Books, second band, as good as new, for sale at half price at the No'tbcrn Liberties Bookstore, 327 7lh stnet, a few doors above the Northrrn Liberty Market.
