The Kn>w Nothings if they expect their party to be anything more tban a bubble, anything mora than a mere nine days' vender, mast plsce their chief reliance for succeis on the sense of fitness which their nominations inspire, ao<t not on any such perfection of discipline as will secure tie unanimous support of the party for whatever ass bi.iouH nobody it may choose to put ap. We doubt not that there are many small men whose connection with an apparently invincible party has in up red them with lar^e hope-). If the party cau only be coerced to rote for whoever is nominated, and they can get the nomination, their fortuue is mtde. Men whom tbe public would never think of as suitable persons for cfflce, are gifted with a rare discernment ot merit, which leads them to think of themselves. Hiving little to ' hope from tbe public recognition of their Btne-te, they place all their reiitnce on a paxty discipline, which coa verts voters into mere tool*. We advise the p?rty to treat such men with previous little connideratioa. It wauld be far hotter oil without them. Considering tbat tbe convention at Philadelphia is aot I to aieemble for the purpose ot making nominations, it may perhaps bethought tbat these remarks are not very pertinent to the occasion. But we think t icy are emi aently so. We tbink tbe present a suitable time to dis abuse tbe party of tbe delusion of supposing it can hold a permanent ascendancy over the public mind by msre ergamzation an-i claptrap. It must hereafter rely an tbe soum nsrs of its princ pies, and tbe fitnens and in tegrity of itH prominent men. It will be weii. there'ore, for the convention to waste no time in trying to devise means tor the hvtter guarding of its secrets, and the ex ercise of a mare complete control ever its members. Let it not attempt to construct a psrfcct tna-biue for transforming oflice-etekt-rs into office holders, but to make tbe party a powenul instrument for promoting i he public good. [From tbe Albanv Register, formerly a sickly silver gray whig, niw Know Nothing ] TAKING OOINBBL OP OUR FOE?. The foes of the American party are firing guns over tbeir escape from destruction ia Virginia. While thay are dcing tbis, it may be well for American* of New York to take counsel among themselves preparatory to tbe contest be'ore them next fall. Without any doubt, our friends in tlio Old dominion have been ov tr oonfl deot, and cheated by preteoded friends, spies and traitor*. These things speaic directly to tbe Americana of New York. There may bo entire security in our present condition? we may be strong enough, and safe against betrtyal Our Virginia brethren thought th?iy were but were mistaken. Let us in New York fall into ?o similar error. Let us by activity henceforth make ?'assurance douhly sure." Let us not slumber on our arms, abate noue of O ir z?a), omit nothing that is honor able to add to our numbers. App?alingto the intelli gence and patriotism of the countrv for support, the American cause can be served best by the circulation of pspers and documents defining our principles and ani mating the hearts of tbe people. Intelligence Is the lever by which the corrupt political dynasties can alone be overturned. Already do we hear our brethren in Virginia complaining bitterly that th?y have failed through misrepresentation of their principles, and be cause tbe cloud or darkness was not lifted, which had so long rested upon the people of Virginia. Wherever ?cutd political reading was circulated, tb?re success at tended the American cause. So it will bo everywhere. Ther* are sound abd reliable American journals scatter ed all over this State and they should liberally circulate among the people. Let our friends give these .journals a warm support. Make this a leading objejt, for it will tell most powerfully in the end, and construct a broad and enduring platform for ".he American par'y.

This was emphatically an elec tion by the squatters? the actual bona fide resident! of tbe Territory. And notwithstanding the free soiiers rallied all their forces and obtained about twenty-five votes from the steamer Kate Cause) ? the hands on the boat and several soldisrs ? yet they were beaten tour to one by an overwhelming majority of the legal resident voters of the Territory. . Tbe actual votes of the free soiiers, including steam boat hands and soldiers, was not exceeding luO, waile that of the pro slavery ticket was 581. L*t us no longer hear free soiiers and abolition letter writers say that Kansas was conquered by an armed force of ?'border ruffians." We nave beaten them a second ant third, and will continue to beat then on every batle field and on ev?ry occasion. This was Keeper's election, which tbe pro-slavery party did not recognize as legal and Lense many of our friends took no interest in tbe election and did not at tend the polls, while our opponent* did all thev could to make a rtf-pectable sfeow of votes. But they have been defeated? overwhelmingly defeated? ana now, we sup pote, they will be content to let oar members have toeir seats, without another contest or "protest " No one, we presume, will now be found ready to swear that '-many citizens were deterred from voting by tbe conduct of Mitoourians." They must admit that they hive be?n fairly Lieut* u, and that for want of voters they must give up the contest. Ihe following is tne official vote. of the election: ? W. O.

dene j. Yotr numerous reader* in tliie quarter hail the views contained in the Sidney Plains letter with plea sure and enthusiasm. and thank yeu most cordially far the kindly manner in which you introduced them to the public. Tour kindness in the rottter waa the more marked, aa it waa generally understood that your rela tions with Mr. Botts had not been very friendly. And here, if you will permit me, I Will endeavor to kbow that you have long labored under a ml**pi>r?hen aion in ie*nect to the true character of Mr Hotu. In doing this, [must beg jcu will aujait n?? of any o > trnslve intent, for uvthing ceuld be farther from my detign. It cannot be otherwise than agreeable to you, lam thoroughly persuaded, if I sliuuM au:sw4 in dis abusing jonr mmu from erroneous iinpreiik.ont againat whomsoever entertained. 1 look upon the HhMaL i, un der v our management, aa by iar the moat potent poli tical engine iu the ? tate of New Vork ; and as exem *in< a very powerful influence in all tbe ether states ol tae Union. In other word", air, I th nk you may be justly r- girded aa tbe Napoleon of the press in tbe United States. However widely others may, at timss. oiflMr from yon amirst the ever-recuiring fldetuationa of party poiitica, your powers and abilities must nevertheless, be>coaceced by all. Your claim to tbeee is both un fle&tirned and unquestionable. 8o, too, I look upon r Botts as one of the purest, most sagacious and en lighted among the living statesmen of to day la oar country. 1 speak this from a long, intimate am tnoiough acquaintance with his character, both private and puo lir. Upon the accession of John Tyler to the Presidency, in April. 1841, Mr. Botts waa warmly ftis perianal and poli tical friend. Their latimacy at that period waa well an aeratood ever tbe sountry? an intimacy which has ever tlnoe subjected Mr. Botts to much harmful ridicule und notoriety. It baa ever appeared to mo that it waald have been aa just, and no more ao, for General Washing ton ti have fullered in reputation because of Areola's treachery, aa *t waa that Mr. Botts should suffer en ac count of fyler's course. Rid'cule? that more destructive weapon very often tban truth and reason and argument combined ? aal nothing hut ridicule, waa the envenomed shaft burled at Mr Botts in those days, and it has been kept in constant play until tbia moment, the late Henry Clay often spoke to me of llr. Botts in cocnecticu with thin very topic, remarking uniform ly to tbe effect, that Mr. Bote bad exhibited to ths country a rata specimen of public virtue, inasmuch as his relations witn ryler weie such aa to have command ed for bim any position in his (Tyler's) ca^iinct be might have chosen to accept, and yet spurned it because truth and honor bade him. Certainly nothing can be clearer than that llr. Botti, ea that memorable oceaaloa, waa gaided so ely and purely by honorable and patriotic mo tivea, thrusting efflce ana its emoluments behind his ?aak. I sm aware that your position on tbe United States Bank question did not coincide with that of Mr. Botta ; but I ask in all oandcr whether yon would not have acted as he C id, had yoi been similarly situated? Political dia trace, deep and damning, will ever follow and abide oa be names tf "Captain Tyler" and his "corporal's ?uard." Of these tbe '*Captain" himself and Henry A. 7 lie and Caleb Cusbing? God pity them !? are still liv ingand figuring. In toeir slightest touch there i* a po lltical virus most loath Home aad contaminating. Lake the gnilty Macbeth, their plague spots are ineffaceable : not all ocean'e waters could ween them out. In res pect to this, I believe there is now but one opinion amongst honorable men of whatever party. At a later time, (to wit, 1848,) Mr. Botts earnestly de sired snd sought tbe nomination of Mr Clay for the Pre sidency as against Gen. Tailor. Mr. Clay's statesman ship was universally known and acknowledged, Gen. Taylor's was wholly untried. Oa tbe question of that nomination Mr. Botts and yourself were at variaacs. 'Well, the experiment was p shed; Gen. Taylor was no minated sad elected, and tbe sequel is before the coun try. Mr. Botts feietaw aad proclaimed what that sequel would be; and now, I have no doubt, your views and bis in repaid to i: are ? ntirely coincident. Moio recently sill, (to wit, in 1852,) Mr. Botts gave an ardent support to Cen. Scott for the Presidency, whilst you, with equal ardor, espoused the cause of Ueu. Picrce. Veil, here again? pardon the allusion? your fell and Mr, Botts are in "the same b?a<l. " lu regard to the merits? demerits, rather ? ot this Pierce aduimistra tioo, you hold opinions in common But there was a matter of much delicacy very improperly introduced in to tbe Presidential canvais of 1862, and with which, by a mo&t unwarrantable misrepresaijtatiOD, Mr. B>:ty be came connected in a manner well calculated to aw<tfcen your indignation and reoentmeut. I ailnle to tbe shame ful story that was current, representing Rcott, at tbe breakfast table in Newport, had declined to accept a copy of tbe Mkbald, w'iso proffered him by tbe lady of the editor. Now, llr. Bott: never gave tbe least credence to that ridiculous story, and hai always so expressed himeelt, publicly and privately. I nill re present tbe affair trutnfiiliy, and precisely as I obUnod it from a number of Virginia gentleman, (Mr. Botts himself beitg < ne of them) at the Astsr Mouse, New York, eilher a s'.ort time prior fo the elect'un in ques tion, or v?ry scon tbereai'ier. Mr. Butts thought, and rightly, too, th?t your Influence In pulling Gen. Scott down, and bulking Gen. Pierce u? was little le?8 ttiau omnipotent. 1I?, in a speech somewhere in Virginia, ? nde. vcred to account, in some measure, for jour hos illtytoGrn. Scott, snd remarked that he could not, unless it bad been provoked by the circulation of this itory. He stated at the time that he did not believe ^he ntoiy to be true; that if it were true, it refle cted a yreat deal more upon the bad mancri of Gsn ? rat s-'cett tban it could upon the Hskami; for 'he la^y could not have been invdved in the mtt'.er, further than in tbe act of civility iu icd'avor.Dji to supply the wants of a Gentleman wh > < id Lot know how to appreciate it. H-reupoa sou* writer, (and there are always enoagb saob,)ad''ressed you a letter, In which be represented Mr. Botts as having ea cor?cd tbe calumny; whereas, ff the writer had OMn truthful, be would bave acquitted Mr Botts of such un kinf'nrss. Mr Botts did not believe 1 ne story, but he c id believe, nevertheless, that your miad had imen ic j nriously affected to^aris Gen. Scott, on account of its fabrication. Point little Mm* after all this had bappea^l, Mr Botts visited New Vork. and stopped at the Aator House. As be came from his room oue morning, with the Hfjui n In Ids band unopened, be wai accosted by a number of gentlemen, myself imoig them, and informed that be figured pretty largely In your papsr of 'ha; da y . He wis both surprised and Irritated. He said that he cnnld not imapit e the cause of your prejudice against him ? that be had ever entertained and expressed very bigh respict for your abilities, &c. You, doubtless, re collect the artvlc I refer to-a pretty long one In it you assailed Mr. Botts with much severity ? charging him with foivtin; be'ore tbe public gaze prvate scanial calculated to injuriously alec female reputation, tfou wrote fiom misinlnrnittion. which made your Htrictu>?? the more severe upon Mr. Botts. You felt that he bid wronged yon: be felt that yau were wronging him. He retorted by letter, which, you declining t-> publish, ap p?ar?d In "the rrxbune. 1 have ever supposed that ail that was necessary to make Mr. Botts and your?nlf friends wssa better acquaintance ?itti each other. You sre both gcod compromise men ? both m-tgnanimnu'*, and both powetful champions in the glorious American party. Tbousatds over tlie country would he rejoiced to have you strike bands in friendship. Come, gentle men? Messrs BennMt and Botts? play quits, and let by fones be by g' n?s. I make the appeal to you both, and know that 1 eeho the sentiment and desire of a very many member" of the recent organizttion, or American paity, e ho en lei tain fur you both profound respect and esteem. At tbe outset cf this communication I bespoke your kind indulgence, and I co not know how better to close It Iban by repeating tbe request tuat you will parden na if anything I have ^ritMsn should strike you as being mispbiced or untimely.
