Prom the Phila. Evening Argue A.mericaus Ruling America. The principal and most delusive catch say ing of the Know Nothings is, "Americans shall rule America." At the commencement of the organization it told with great effect upon our young men, and the more ignorant of our native born citizens. It was seen on 'all their banners, shouted forth by all their orators, and used as the caption of many a newspaper article. In fact, the cunning men who belonged to the- secret order and aspired to places of honor and profit, that they could not reach while members of any other party, used it with such effect as to make thousands believe that our country was overrun and gov erned by a foreign horde and that Americans never did. rule America. The result has been to arouse in the breasts of hosts of the ignorant portion of our native born fellow-citizens the worst passions of hu man nature, and cause them to hate and pro scribe those of foreign birth and Catholic creed, as well as the liberal and truly Repub lican portion of those of American birth who do not approve their anti-American notions. In a number . of our large cities, Know- Nothingism succeeded; but their rule was so tyrannical and corrupt, that, with but a few exceptions, the sober second thought of the people drove them from place and power.— Afew places remain whose citizens are yet boUnd hand and foot by Know Nothing mis . rule. .Louisville, New Orleans, and Balti more, have Know Nothing municipal govern ments. In these cities " Americans rule Anierica" with a vengeance. Rowdyism, riot and bloodshed is the order of the day.- - Men of foreign birth and opposite politics stand no chance whatever. They are 'sub jected to the greatest indignities and the gross . est injustice. The ballot-box has been inva ded, the right of suffrage shown to be a farce, and criminal courts holes through which mur derers have been allowed to escape unpunish ed, in the very face of outraged public opin ion. Thus it is that Americans rule .Ameri- The city of Baltimore, scarce thirty miles from the seat of our national government, at the present time is ruled with a rod of iron; surpassing in injustice the most despotic gov ernment in Europe, by the ruffians of the Know Nothing order and those they have klaced in power. Scarcely a day passes that mitted by brutes belonging to the secret or der, almost under the eyes of those whose du ty it is to protect the lives and property of the citizens and execute the laws. And yet they go unpunished. While this is the case ,those who are not Americans are made to meet the full penalties of the law for the most trifli rig offence. Here "Americans rule Amer- lea!' A few weeks since, while an inoffending German citizen,' named Dengle, at twilight, was standing at his door, he was assailed by three half drunken fighting men of the order and shot dead without the least provocation. This was seen by three persons, who swore to the fact before the jury in the Criminal Court of Baltimore; but notwithstanding this evidence and the strongest convicting circum stances that could be produced in any ease, a packed Know Nothing jury set the mur derers free, that they might prey once more upon society and commit other murders when they please, to be again, in all probability, declared innocent. The Baltimore Republi cay, of Wednesday, while commenting on this legal outrage, says ; " What next ?" said a prominent business Man of the opposition yesterday, upon hear ing of the acquittal of the persons arraigned for the rnurdCr of Dengle. The answer is as obvious as destructive of all confidence in ju ry determinations. Every Democrat who is charged with crime will doubtless be dealt with in that spirit of injustice which has rid den roughshod over law, conclusive testimo ny, and an almost undivided public opinion. In other words, Democrats who have been ar rested for alleged. participation in the riots Will be convicted, while "trump ruffians, over flown with insolence and brutality, whose wild raid through our streets is marked by rapine, and wanton, wilful bloodshed, will go un whipped of justice. There is little or no hope remaining for those guilty of thinking or acting in contravention of our masters in office. - Disfranchised, unprotected against partizan wrong and outrage, arrested without .cause to be condemned without mercy, the level of citizenship in Baltimore has sounded the depths of degradation. In other lands, submission to tyrants unfailingly evokes le gal protection ; but here, in the land of the free, the most common rights are crushed out between the upper millstone of petty tyran ny and the nether one of unstinted. ruffian ism."- This is " Americans ruling America."— And whit is the result of these Know Noth ing outrages? They are most disastrous.— They have given Baltimore a blow from which at will"fake her_long years to recover. Some of her best citizens are flying from the city in disgust, determined to submit to outrage no longer; but go rather to places where some regard is" had for: life and property. The trade of -Baltimore- has_ been injured; mer .chantz from the South and Southwest, who used to purchase goods there, now pass by as though the city was cursed by some loath some plague ; even people of some of the coun ties of Maryland have passed resolutions not to trade or barter with Baltimore, :which has heretofore been looked upon as the great heart and pride of the State. The farmers of Hartford county resolved, in public meeting, to send their produce to Philadelphia, and buy their goods here, ra ther than risk their liVes in Baltimore. Al ready we hear of: the failure of some of the first dry goods houses in Baltimore, occasion ed by the falling off in trade and the immense amount of goods on hand unsold. These are the sad results of Americans, or Know-Noth- I ings, ruling America. The Lancaster Bank The stockholders of the Lancaster Bank held an adjourned meeting on Saturday, the 6th inst., when the 'committee appointed-to wait upon the stockholders and depositors with a view to carry out the proposition of the previous meeting, reported that they had met very ill success. Since the last meeting the liabilities of the Bank had been reduced $173,000. It also appears that the Bank is charged with $30,000 more notes than was ever issued. Various propositions for a re organization of the Bank were submitted, and also the following report from the com mittee of investigation: The Committee_ appointed at a meeting of the Stockholders of the Lancaster Bank, held at Fulton Hall, on the 22d ult., to investigate the affairs of the Bank, beg leave to report that they have' discharged the duty, and find the statement of assets and liabilities, pre sented by the Directors to the Stockholders, at that meeting, is substantially correct, as far as it is possible to ascertain at this time. The Committee also find by the certificate obtained from the engravers and printers of all the notes of the Bank, since its organiza tion as a bank, that they correspond with the issues exhibited on the books of the Bank.-- 7 - The Committee are therefore of opinion that there could be no over-issue unless the notes reported . on the books as burned were not so destroyed, and again fraudulently put into circulation. We have no reason to think that has been the case. The Committee deem it inexpedient at this time to report to the public the cause of the suspension of the Bank, inasmuch as they have assurances from the principal debtors of the Bank, previously reported as doubtful, that they are making every effort to discharge their liabilities, and because an exposition at this time of the mismanagement of the Bank; would greatly prejudice the chances of recov ering a considerable portion of the assets whic are put down as doubtful. The Committee, therefore, recommend to all interested parties, believing it is not their interest at this time, to expose the misman agement of the Bank, as such a course would only augment the personal liabilities of the SPA - AP. so anxiously looked for by the business commu nity. The condition of the Bank as compared with the statement made to the stockholders Nov. 22d, 1856, is as follows: Nov. 22, 1856, Notes in circulation, 5,.,:721,869 Dec. 6, 64 CI 555,471 Reduction, The essets are reduced to a similar amount 1?esolval, That the Committee be discharg ed from the further consideration of the sub ject. Lancaster Bank, Dec. 6, 1856. Eansas Affairs The late election has shed flood of light on Kansas affairs, and motives of conceal ment having been removed by the defeat of the Black Republican candidate, their Organs and agents can afford to give us occasionally a glimmer of truth. For instance, in refer ence to the outrages committed in that terri tory, the Herald of Freedom, an organ of the Emigrant Aid Society, published at Lawrence, K. T., says : • Disguise the fact as much as we will, there is a class of irresponsible persons, calling themselves Free-State men, who are engaged in horse stealing, and other crimes against the Pro-Slavery settlers, and excusing them selves under the plea that they have sustain ed injuries at the hands of the party on which they commit their depredations. Whether they have sustained injuries or not, they . aro not justifiable in committing outrage upon the person or property of others, and if con tinued should be punished for . it. While Free-State men sanction these outrages upon the Pro-Slavery party, we hope they wilt not complain if they, or their friends, suffer at the hands of their enemies. Every - property,holder and actual .resident of Kansas, let him belong to what party he will, desires peace, and he shOuld labor_ to secure it. Both parties will be compelled to join hands, in ridding the country of the black-legs, horse thieves and murderers with which Kansas is infested., If twenty or.thir ty of this class of persons on each side were disposed of a /a Vieksburg,_we. should have quiet again. A Vigilance Committee, made up of the members of-both parties, is needed to bring to justice those who .are laboring night and. day, to bring about another col lision between the conflicting political par ties. We are conscious that man)! professed Free-State men will censure us for asserting that members of our own party .are concerned in. these outrages, but we love justice •and quiet to the country more -than their good will. No - wrong-doer; belong to what party he may, need expect to find an apologi-t for his wrongful acts in the Herald of cdom. It was planted to subserve the'cause of Truth, and it shall be faithful to its mission while it has an existence. The same paper boasti - ngly asserts that Kansas cannot possibly become a slave State, let the National Administration do what it. will. The two principal assertions by which the Black Republicans sought to influence the public mind prior to the late election, viz: first, that an immense number of "outrages" had been committed upon the Free-State men without provocation or retaliation ; and sec- REPORT. 55172,602 ond, that upon the issue of the Presidential election the future fate of Kansas would: de pond, are thus authoritatively branded as falsehoods by the very best evidence that could he adduced. A Black Republican pa per, published in Kansas Territory, the scene where all those events have transpired, the Herald of Freedom, far from. desponding, as sures its friends that "the political horizon of Kansas was never brighter than now." To those honest but misguided men who confided, in the statements of the Black Re publicans previous to the election, these rev elations will indeed seem' strange," and, we' hope, learn them what folly it is to pin their faith to the sleeves of such false demagogues. -:—Pennsylvanian. Our Agricultural Interests. In the busy and bustling City, where the insionia of commerce meet us on every hand and thenoisy hum of trade echoes continu ally in our ears, we are apt to forget that there are other interests claiming our atten tion and our aid. Closing our ears for a time to the rumble and roar of active machi nery, to the whirl of heavily-laden cars, and the shrill shriek of the locomotive ;•and.clos ing our eyes to the puffing steamers and lines of drays, and the smoke of facteries ; it is but right and proper that we should occasionally wander out into the broad fields of our farm ers. and look at their rich crops, and listen to their demands upon our consideration. No argument is needed to impress every one with the incalculable, the essential im portance of fostering our agricultural inter ests. It needs only to be suggested to re ceive the cordial assent of all classes and con ditions of men. The farmers furnish the very essence of trade. Through them and by them all other pursuits live, move and have their being.—And yet, while legislative aid is freely and repeatedly given to develop, perfect and protect all other interests, the farmers have received but an occasional thought from our Legislatures. And this is chiefly owing to the well-known and, we might say, constitutionally modesty of the honest tillers of the soil. They have been content to plod on in the beaten track their fathers trod, rather than make any personal experiment or appeal to the commonwealth to lend its patronage to the investigation of important theories in agriculture. But, of late, our farmers have imbibed something of the spirit of universal progress. They have applied themselves to study the nature of the soil, and to work it upon-scien tific principles. And in order that young men may be thoroughly educated in the sci ence of practical agriculture, an institution has been established in Centre county, which is destined to become exceedingly beneficial to our State. We understand that efforts will be made this winter, to secure•from the Legislature, an appropriation to aid in the endowment of the Farmers' High School. Now, in advance, we bespeak the calm atten tion and earnest co-operation of the members in this very laudable project. Let our Legis lature promptly and nobly respond to the call made by the most substantial and important classes of our citizens, and it will redound to the credit and to the wealth; prosperity, and importance of the Farmers' College Was re ferred to in the very able and interesting ad dress delivered by lion. Geo. W. Woodward before the State Agricultural Society in Octo ber last. We advise every farmer to procure and read carefully that address.—Pittslntrgh Uizion. Buchanan a Majority President. Notwithstanding all the boasts of the oppo sition to the contrary, it turns out that Mr. Buchanan is a majority President of the Uni ted States. If every individual . who voted for Fillmore in the United States had voted for Fremont, or vice i;ersa it would net have changed the result. The Boston, Tinte.s. says:—Mr. Buchanan received a majority of the votes polled in four teen Southern States, which cast one hundred and twelve electoral votes. In addition he .carries the State of Pennsylvania and Indi ana by absolute majorities over everything. "They are entitled to forty electoral votes; and added to the South it makes one hundred and fifty-two—three more than is necessary •to a choice. The union of the opposition for ces upon one man could not have beaten Mr. Buchanan. The official canvass shows this to be a fact; and we trust that the Fremont men will . ce,ase abusing the supporters of Mr. Fillmore upon the idea that, had they gone -for the Mariposa cattle dealer, he would have been elected. The Fillmore men did not hold the balance of power ; their Votes could not have affected the result. Mr. Buchanan, in truth and fact, is a majority President." SomErrirso or A CIIANGP.-It is said that the lion. S. A. Douglas, when he set out for Washington, was not allowed to pass a sta tion between Chicago 'and Cleveland without being called out. While acknowledging the compliment of an impromptu demonstration at Toledo, he said it "was but a short time since he might have travelled from :Boston to Chicago by the light of his own effigies burn ing in every village where abolitionism could muster courage enough to attempt the dis gracefulact, the sole provocation for which was,, that he had dared to introduce a bill allowing the people, of every State and of every, Territory to regulate their own affairs in their own way. But he congratulated his hearers that the just principles of that bill had been adopted and made a fundamental principle of our government; and he felt a proud satisfaction in. the approval and en dorsement of his own course, and that of his gallant colleague, Gen. Shields, embodied in the triumphant election of the veteran statesman, James• Buchanan, to the Presi dency." •MURDERERS INVITED TO A BALL, &c.—The Baltimore Republican says of Rotin, Tomer arid Granger, the men who murdered poor Dengle:— . . We are informed that on the occasion. of the acquittal of these men, they were accom panied from the Courthouse by a large number of their friends, among whom they seemed to be iogarded as heroes who had performed some praiseworthy and glorious feat. A club of Know-Nothings on Federal Hill, it is also, stated, fired a salute in com memoration of the event. "In connection with this affair we may also note that a rumor was current in the vicinity of Federal Hill, on Sunday afternoon, that the - prisoners and some of the jurors would be in attendance at the 'Tigers' ball, which came off at the New Assembly Rooms, on last Monday . evening, as invited guests. The 'Tigers' is the cognomen of a Federal Hill Know-Nothing club." k k .+= :L, The Burning of Grenada:---The Naval Engagement. NEw YORK, Dec. 15.—The steamship Ten nessee has arrived, with advices from Nica ragua, but the intelligencd is principally the same as received by telegraph from Charles ton. The latest intelligence given by the Purser of the Tennessee is that General Walker had fought several successful battles since the de parture of the previous steamer. lie had, however, on account of sickness being preva lent at Orenada, found it necessary to evacu ate that tOWn, and burn it, having first re moved his sick and wounded to Ornetept. was himself at Virgin Bay awaiting the arrival of reinforcements, designing then to attack Rivas. The Naval engagement already reported took place in the harbor of San Juan between the Nicaraguan schooner Granada, with two six-pounders and 28 men, and the Costa Rican brig, 11th April, with six nine-pounders and 114 men. The latter was blown up. Forty of her crew were rescued by the Granada. The brig had on board a large supply of stores and' ammunition, and specie for the allied army. CHARLESTON, Dec. 13, 1856.—The steam.- ship Isabel, from Havana and Key West, ar rived here this morning. The steamship Tennessee had arrived at Key West from San Juan, the 4th inst, with 500 passengers,' and $900,000 in specie, (so says our despatch.) Thirteen of the passen gers of the Tennessee bad died of Cholera. The passengers state that the accounts from Nicaragua were that General Walker had been driven from every place where he had obtained a footing, with the exception of the Transit route. The last accounts reported that 400 of his force, after fighting for nine days at Granada, were surrounded by the. Costa Rican; Salva dor, and Guatemala forces. Gen: Walker was on board a steamer on the Lake, without communication _with his army, and . his men were suffering for the want of provisions and clothing, and were dying off by diseases. A naval fight'had occurred near San Juan del Sur, lasting two hours, between a Costa Rican brig of war, and the Nicaraguan war 'schooner at Granada. Gen. Walker had burn t'Granada and Mas saya. Terrible Railroad Accident at Alliance, The Pittsburgh Train . run into by the Cleve land 'Tarn.—Eight persons killed and sev- en, or eight wounded ! ! One of the most dreadful railroad calami ties which it has been our painful duty to re cord, as having happened in this part of the country, occurred last evening., about 7 o'clock, at Alliance, Ohio, eighty-seven miles west of this place, at the junction of the Cleveland and Pittsburgh with the Pittsburgh, Fort Wayne and Chicago Railroad. By sundry private despatches we learn the following par ticulars: The train which left this place at 3 P. M., yesterday, under the charge of Conductor Leavitt, arrived at Alliance behind time ; the justn, ‘i gotthrough supper, rt _ across the track of the C. & P. Road, when the Cleveland train, Conductor W. C.

One passenger car ran clear through the ro tunda of the Station Ilouse kept by Dan Sour beck. Another, the despatch says, is no-W lying in the public room. The rotunda is completely torn to pieces, and presents the appearance of a total wreck. ' The wounded are all being well taken care of at'the hotel of Mr. Sourbeck and the ad joining houses, and at half past eight o'clock a coroner's jury had assembled to hold an in quest on the bodies of the killed. As soon as the accident occurred, it is said. the engineer of the Cleveland and Pittsburgh train vamosed the ranche, and has not since been heard of. Where .the blame lies, we could not learn, though the cause of the ca tastrophe is attributed to the brakes not work ing, on accouni of ice on the track. It is.possibly one of those dreadful calam ities which seem to take place at stated peri - - ods, in spite of the utmost vigilance. Mr. Leavitt we know to be a most careful man, and is esteemed by railroad.men, one of the best Conductors on the Pittsburgh and Chi cago road, or for that niatter, on any road in the country: W. C. Cleland is also said to be an 'excellent.offteerl To-morrow we may ascertain something further which will throw light upon the matter. WA...The Troy Times tells a sad story of the destruction of a young and lovely woman, by intemperance. A few months since, a young lady of one of the first families of that city was married to a New York merchant, under circumstances most auspicious for the happiness of both. Lately she returned to her home . in Troy, discarded by her husband on account of her mania for intoxicating drinks, and in a few weeks she died of brain fever, induced by her habits. The father of the young lady has been called upon, within three months, to mourn . the death of a. wife and. daughter by intoxication ; and a son, once noble and manly, whose highest nature had been perverted by the same cause. VALUE OF LIFE.—An adventurer, writing from California, says: "A man's life here is worth about fifty cents on the dollar." Ohio ! C on greasional. WASHINGTON CITY, Dec. 12.—1 t is under; stood that another Pacific Railroad Bill is about to be introduced into the House. It is on a magnificent scale, and is entitled a bill to provide for the construction of Railroads and Telegraph communications from the Mis sitsippi raver and Lake Superior to the Pacific Ocean. Three main roads are proposed, viz: One from a point on the Mississippi river, South of latitude 36, to San Francisco, with a debouche to San Diego ; another from some point on the Missouri river, North of latitude 40, and South of latitude 43, to San Francis co, with a branch to Marysville, Sacramento and San Jose ; and the 3d from some point on Lake Superior to Puget's Sound, with a branch to the mouth of the Williamotte river. To each of these routes the bill proposes to grant 30 sections of land for each mile of Railroad; the land to be selected by the par ties named in the bill, from the nearest unap propriated, vacant lands of the United States, which shall be withdrawn from sale, entry, or pre-emption, and if required they shall be surveyed under the direction of the Secretary of Interior, provided the parties in the bill shall not be compelled to take any waste lands, and shall pay to the United States 25 cents per acre ; provided further, that no title shall vest in them any faster than the roads are extended. to completion; further, they shall deposite with the Secretary of Interior, within six months after the passage of the act, $200,000 in good United States or State currepey, as a guaranty. One hundred miles of mrth must be completed within 18 months from the time of the establishment of the routes. When said 100 miles are ready for the track, the Secretary of the Interior -shall allow the parties named the use of said $200,- 000, to purchase iron therefor, and in lieu thereof take a - first mortgage bond on the road for that amount, to be held until the en tire line is completed. Under the bill, the United States• are to agree to pay $3OO per mile for the transportation of the mails until the completion of the road, and for ten years thereafter. at so much for transporting troops and munitions of war as the President and Secretary of War may determine. If the parties fail to build the lines within ten years from the date of their location, all right to the land, not at that time paid for, shall be forfeited to the United States. The right of way, to the width of 400 feet, through the public lands is proposed to be granted ; further, six sections of land is pro posed to be granted to the following roads, under the restriction that any amount here tofore granted to States where they are loca ted for their use and benefit shall be deducted therefrom viz: The Southern Branch Pacific Railroad, "Iron Mountain Railroad, Calro and Fulton Railroad, Memphis and Little Rock Railroad, Mississippi, Red River and Washi to Railrca , l , Vicksburg and Shreveport Railroad, New Orleans, Opelonsas and Great Western Railroad, connecting •with the first named route; 'Pacific Railroad, Hannibal and St. Jo seph Railroad, Burlington, Keasangua, and Missouri Railroad, Philadelphia, Fort Wayne and Platt Valley Railroad, Mississippi and Missouri Railroad, lowa Central An.

All the property of said companies in the Territories is •to be exempt from taxation as long as they are Territories. None of them shall construct their roads through the• lands of- any Indian tribes without the consent of said tribes. They must sell and convey half the lands granted within five years, and the balance - within ten from the issuing of the patent from the United States, and all land not sold at the expiration of ten years, shall be forfeited to the United States. Slave Excitement in Tennessee. LOUISVILLE, Dec. 9.—The Journal of to day publishes letters from Franklin, Tennes see, stating that great excitement existed there in consequence of the discovery on the Ist inst., of a projected insurrection among the slaves. Twenty-four muskets and two kegs of powder were found in the possession of a gang of negroes at Columbia, Tenn.— In Perry, ten or fifteen negroes had been killed bY their owners. The Evansville Journal, of the 6th, learns that much excitement existed in the neigh borhood of Dover, on the Cumberland river. Many of the ringleaders had been arrested, and seven hung. Ono white ma . p, found dis guised as a negro, had been sentenced to re ceive nine hundred lashes, and died before the penalty was fully inflicted. The whites were arming and organizing for defence. The opinion prevailed that a general uprising would take place during the holidays. The escapes of slaves are unusu ally numerous. A NEW ' PARTY.---The Syracuse (N. Y.) Courier understands that a new political or ganization is on foot in the North for the purpose of breaking up priestly interference in politics. Among other things, it propos es to place our clergy on an equal footing with the rest of us, in respect to taxation, military duty, jury duty, &c. Their exemp tion was for the express purpose of withdraw ing them from the caucus and the stump, but they dz.cline the honor. Unless the clergy abstain from their attempt to control the politics of the country, they cannot complain 3f the privileges which have been granted them by the Lgislature, and which are allu ded to above, are taken away. The recent identification of a large body of them with a desperate political faction, and their unscru pulous desecration of the pulpit to give it ac cess, has created a deep and bitter feeling throughout the land, and the tenets ascribed to the new party would be embraced by thous ands. The American people will never sub mit to their domination, and the sooner the latter act upon this assumption the better for them and the interests of religion.—Phila. _Argus. Prom Kansas.
