man of twenty, he addressed the ladies- thus :
"Ladies, you are very handsome, you dance
very pretty . ; your ball is very fine—but no
soldiers have no shirts.". This :appeal was ir
resistible. That ball ceased ; the ladies went
home and went to work, and the next day a
large nutnlyer of shirts were prepared by the
fairest hands of Baltimore, fur the gallant de
fenders of their country.
That young Frenchman, and the Majority of
his shirtless soldiers, who fought bravely—not
far gieir own liberty, or the freedom of their
native land, but—for the liberty which_Amer

spite of all their self-sacrificing devotion to our
cause. .could these gallant foreigners revisit
the scenes of their revolutionary struggles; in
stead - of being welcomed by the hearty plaudits
of a grateful people. the bigoted spirit of Know
Nothingism would compel Americans to turn
their backs upon their early benefactors, and
tell them that they were not tit to enjoy the.
rights which they aided to achieve, and.not to

goes on to say :
"Last winter when Mr. Parsons was arrest
eil haranguing, a crowd on the Sabbath,
sonic good men and sonic religious newspapers
imagined that our religious liberties and the

In condemning the blunder of the policeman

showed the fallacy of all such apprehensions:
that freedom of speech and fieedorn of w or ship

blocked up by crowds of lotkfers listening to
some illiterate ranter against the Pope and
Irishmen : and that no item of our American
artd Christian liberties would be compromised
by a police regulation requiring all public dis
cussions to be held within doors. We p?edict
ed that this out-door preaching, which is at
Variance equally with the climate of our coun

Already Tired of It ! •
The great city of Philadelphia is now com
pletely under the control of Know •Nothingistn
—its policy is the policy of the Know Nothings -
--and its credit and fame is in the keeping - of
that— proscriptive order. Its policemen—its*"
school teachersits street viewers—and all its
executive and subordinate officers are of that
stripe. Philadelphia is, a miniature -common
wealth, and if 14 wish to ascertain how Penn
sylvania wenld-tiOurish under their rule, we
have only to look how the great consolidated
city flourishes now ! The people of that city
have already seen the evil effects of choosing
officers to posts - ofresponsibility and trust upon,
qualifications, which have nothing to !do with
&strict discharge of their duty. In their zeal
to secure the services of "native' born and
protestantlitizens," they failed to remember
that men using up to that standard are'not
necessarily honest,-and that an officer might
possess both these "requisites," and be still
igorant of the du tiesOf his-station. He Might,
alilion , rh' "native Ai 1 1111 I/ 1"
both the great Jeffersoniiihrequisites of hones
ty and -capability. - The people of Philadelphia
have discovered the great error into which
they have fallen, and now groan under exces
sive-taxes, which arc levied to keep' up an ar
tily of hungry office-holders. The expenses of
this "Know Nothing" government is $700,000
per annum—more than 'the-ordinary annual
expenses of the goVernment of -the great State
of Pennsylvania —and to meet this ,vast outlay
of Money the,eity tax alone is one dollar and
eighty . cents- on every'hundred dollars of real
estate ! • Are-the people - of - Permsylvanin - wil ,- '
ling'to try the fearful experiment, - and place
our old Conimonwealtb - under the men-who
now so,badly govern Philadelphia ? Are,they
-willing to discard Digler, who has been so
pure in office. that his administration stands
without it blemish, and elect Pollock, who
woncd, be to the State What, Conrad ,is to, the
city. We cannot believe it—we have too
much confidence in'the wisdom and integrity
of the-people. When We are asked to vote for
a "Know Nothing" Governor, or any other
candidate, let us point to Philadelphia,_ over
taxed and over-ridden with a gang pf hungry
cormorants, Whose love for their "native land'
and whose zeal for the "bible" is regulated by
the drafts in their fitvor ou the Treasury. The
