Demagoguisrp is said to-be the leading rice
of rapußlican institutions. Always in search
of political capital, it never 'looks to see.
.wbeiher it is consistent with itself. This dis
graceful fact'has been recently illustrated by
the shameless course of the two Opposition
_ - factions. Not content with grossly misrep
resenting the meaning of Gen. Cass letter to
air: Le Clerc—a mere semi•ofdcial business
,note of a few lines, stating, a fi‘et by wsy of
cautioning his correspondent,., and not in
. tended as a political text tn the discussion of
a principle, as is Trite plain upon its face—
thefactions of 'the Opposition, whose oppres
sive, tyranical and bigoted :hostility-to nat
uralized citizens mar be seen in the ruin of
churches destroyed by fire, and in the moul
dering remains Xif hundreds of victims from
.I . :lesr Orleans to St:' Louis, deprived of life
while endeavoring to fulfill their duty as frees
men -at the ballot box, have endeavored to
patronize.this despised and ill-treated class of
our fellow-citizens by pretending a new-born
zeal in their welfare. 'Well - may each adopted
• citizen exclaim in view of this sodden
festation of friendship, . as did the Trojan of
old, " 7'imeo Damps et Bona ferentes"--4 fear
- •the Greeks when they bring us gifts.
But as I further proof of the hollow
hearted hypocrisy which his marked the
. meretricious display we have witnessed, you
- will.permit us to call-your particular notice
to the recent amendment of the Constitn:
Lion= et - the State of Massachusetta, a State
Wholly and hopelessly „given to Black Repub
licanism, (as distinguished from pure Ameri
that .." No person of for
eign birth shalf-heenrided to vote, nor shall
be eligible to office, unless be shall have re:
aided within the jurisdiction of the United
States for two years subset Uentto his Lattr- .
abandon, and shall be otherwise qualified ac
cording to the Conititutien and !awl of- the
Commonwealth:" The language of this
amendment speaks for itself, and requires no
explanation or comment. Before it could
be submitted to a vote of the people of the
State, the law required it should be acted on
and passed by two surt , •estt s ive - legislatures:
• Aciiirdiritgly this was done. It is an undis
puted fact that fopr-fifths of each Chamber
of these two'.succesadve Legislatures, were
"..--neittier Democrats, 6bl' Americans, but Black
Republicans. , The yote of Mitssaehusetts at
the Presidential election was, in round Mato'
bers,one hundred and fire thousand rotes for
Fremont; (Black Republican,) twenty-nine
thousand" for Buchanan, (Democrat,) and
-twenty thousand for Fillmore, (KnoW-Yotb
ing.) The proof it therefore incontestible that
this Measure r originating with the Black Re
publicans, was passed through two successive
- Legislatures,. in which . the party was'over
whelmingly predominant, and that it was 6-
tally consummated as the j:roprolar election
by their suffrage.s... The , immoral, not to
• say e ff ect of this extraordinary
accendisentis two-fold.' It first discriminates
against itlie naturalized citizens by setting
thent apa . if as. a class among white men, un
worthy to participate in elections with them,
or in the active again of government, for the
period of two years aftek they have become*,
in Compliance with all the forms of the oat
' walla:Won laws, full citizens of the United
States. •In the second place, it makes, in de
rogation of the rights .and respectability of
naturalized citizens, an excessively insulting
demonstration • in favor of negro equality
with,the native-born, and negro superior/100
the foreirt-lorn. For, while the natoralined .
citizen is prohibited ,from voting;,althengka
• oerf,Tt ritlen in- the rerree of the Censtitu
don of the United States, negroes in Massa
chusetts are not simply permitted to vote, but
are eagerly courted to Agnew's - the badge of
electoral power. Not only this, but more.
While every white man, no matter how long
he may have resided in this country—rns mat
ter how immense his fortune or heavy the
rimount of 'tax he pays, or lake his family,
who may be Made full citizen of the United
States to-day, or who was even made so on
the tench of last November or at any time
since, cannot vote before or at the next Presi
dential election in the State of Maisachutstts
—a negro who has run away or been stolen
from Maryland or any other slave holding
State and who flees into Massachusetts by
"fore the first day of melt November, and re
mains theie, may proceed to the polls and
assert then and there his .political equality:
with the native-born, and his political superi
ority to every citizen, naturalized within .two
years, who may happen, by fixed residencn
or otherwise, to be within the limits of that
Commonwealth. And is.it not apparent that
if the Blnek Republican party of Massachu
setts has altered the fundamental law of the
State . ' bi'the introduction of a clause restrain
ing naturalized citizens from voting for two
years after naturalization, that they may
hereafter, on the same principle, - extend the
period f restriction to five, ten, fifteen or
twenty years. Some other States, unless this
unconstitutional and oppressive movement by
at once resisted and. subdued, may next
amend its Constitution withn restrictive pro ,
sision-in duration atilt more offensive, until,
to all intents and purposes should theexam
ple be followed by others, the old Native
American doctrine of twenty-one years resi
dence before naturalization '
may be establish
ed in all or a majority of the States of the
Union. It must be confessed that this is a
grave question occurring here in the United
Staten• under' the - American_ Flag itself, in
which every naturalized citizen is interested
either in respect to his honor or his franchise.
There, is consequently no cause for surprise in
the circumstances that the newspapers and
politicians of the Opposition have so strenu
ously endeavored, by their impudent and silly
effusions.regarding General Cass's brief note
to Mr. Le- Clete, to divert the popular atten
tion from a case like this,-the dread responsi
bility of which they cannot escape, in which,
by a - deliberate and solemn act of Goiern
ment, they have
. placed the - naturalized Citi
zen, not merely in a pc&i:ion of political in
feriority to white men, but to negines,aed by
which they have inaugurated a policy . that,
if fully developed, would lead substantially to
the disfrancljisment of all future emigrants.
It. does not admit of doubt that many
worthy men among the adopted citizens-have
been seduced from the protectingranks of
the Democratic party by. some of The shal
low humanitarian theories broached by the
Black Republican, wing or the Opposition.
They should now be satisfied that all this
rigmarole and rant.concerning "freedom and
human rights," and the " irrepressible conflict
between the slave-holding and non-slave
holding Statia of the Union,- until all shall
become free or all shall become Slave," means
tbe,political inferiority to white native-bore
and men to stegroes, of other white men who,
are citizens by cboice and law in this 'coun
This is not the first occasion urea wb ch
Black Republicanism has manifested its is
,position to insult and outrage the fo -
born citizens. No doubt all remember t t,
in the year of 1856 the Know-Nothing
American Republican party of that day, met
in Philadelphia to. nominate candidates for
the Presidency and Vice Presidency, and that
their Convention, or National Council, proved
a failure, because of not-agreement among
its members- from the North and the South,
about what was called the 12th Section. It
will not and cannot be - denied* that what is.
now tbe Black Republican faction:through
out the-North -and West was largely repre
sented in that Convention. Many of the pres
ent leaders in this faction were delegates.
Their names can easily be fbnnd and clearly
identified. The platform submitted contain
ed the most cowardly and violent attacks on
,the patriotism .and civil sights of the whole
body bf naturalized citizens. A large por
tion of the 'members of the convention came
directly from the secret midnight conclaves.
And- yet neither the attempt to violate the
deareselinterests of citizens on the ground of
religion io some cases, and birthplace iq
others, nor the -companioaship of Know- .
Nothing conspirators, 'then embarrassed the
now tender , consciences of our Black Repub
lican philanthropists. But you will remem
ber, that this American-Republican Con
vention broke up in confusion on the 12th
section of the platform, and that contained
the negro question, of cease; and nothing but
the negro qUestion. There was a German
pee ion, , there was an Irish question,
other questions ors kindred character, then,
24 now, staring these freedom-mongers, and
sensitive philanthropists, in the face, - but the
Black Republicans only bad interest enougtr
in them to kick them under the table, while
all their beetenergies were excited,i4all
their Borst passions inflamed, bythenalate
rate contentions over.ibe beloved !men
- And from that day to ibis no nationel con
vention of the Opposition party, under what
ever name, it may have chosen to appear for
the nonce; has failed to adopt a resolution
sustaining, either directly or by fair implica
tion, this Know-Nothing sentiment.
' - It is tine that some of the men and some
of the presses of the Opposition ,have pro
nounced against this Massachusetts abomina
tion. But the epistolary declarations of a
Jew partizans, and the mouthing'editotials of
a few mercenary newspapers amount to little
or nothing. Let the -proper political party
organs speak out their condemnation of this
brutal wrong? You have seen that in the
Northwest, afier an excitingistid lengthened
contest in a State Convention or two, the_lia
tive Ametican element has been compePed to
yield to the naturalized influeneeof the Black
Republican organization, and have repudiated
it. But how is it elsewhere, and especially
how is it in Pennsylvania! There is net a
single word of reprobation in any one of the
senseless resolutions of the Opposition Con
vention of the Bth of June last, bat in that
profligatenaucus sat Black Republicans and
Know-Nothings, "cheek by jowl7every Black
Republican trying to fancy hithself a Know-
Nothing, and every pow -Nothing trying to
fancy himself a Black Republican, deceiving
each other and' deceiving themselves, and
really agreeing in nothing except not to re-'
padiate the Massachisetts aurpation, and in
sinking what Attie principle they ever poll-'
sensed into the unceesnit compromises of
an unprincipled coalition.
But we have already, fellow-citinens, more
than filled. our allotted- apace. In fearlessly,
and so far sliccessfully,inpporting the princi- I
pies of the Constitution, the Democratic party
has been and is now the true friend and sup
port of the rights and 'interests of the natural
ized citizens. If they or portion of than,
no matter what their race or religion, will
perist ie. listening Ineffably to the high
sounding phrases, wennezipty promises of
those who, as a party, so heartily despise
them, and who will, if trusted, assuredly lead
them to destructioo, be it so. :Flt may be
truthfully asserted that Dodd% baiter been
done in- this country more inenleieg to the
patriotism rind bettor of naturalizedecitizens,
or more dangerons to-them, as
than this malevolent discrimination against
them by the restrictive amendment of the
Constitution of Massachusetts; 'and it is
strange, with all their abundant profiissions,
that the "People's party" of. Pennsylvania
should belie maintained silence at the out
rage. In .'any event, it must be plain that,
not to meet such an act sternly and at once,
is-to invite,aggreesion and contempt. -

To Hon. W. Jessup, Pres.Hoerd of Trustees:
DEAR Stn.—l received your letter oftl - 3th
lost, by due mail, in accordance with which,
I conclude that the plan proposed bjnie to
furbish a substitute to oondiet the Normal
School your village, for the future, is ac
quieiced in by the board of Trustees:
In accordance with this ; plan I have made
arrangements with 11Altir BRODEIZAD, A.l),
a graduate . of Yale.. College, to assume the
principalship of your Institution. Of Mr. B.
as a gentleman of education and refinement
and of manly and christiAn characteristics; it
affords me pleasure to by 'able to speak in the
highest and most positive terms, he having
been for several years a member of my School - .
In view of his scholarly abilities and esti
mable claracter,l commend him to your con
fidence and social regard, end through you'
to the Board of Trustees and my youngfriends
of the county, in whose well-being I fag the
liveliest interest, hoping that his labOis among
you may prove alike pleasing and profitable
to all interested. -
It was my intention to return'to Montrose
in the Fall,aod my defistture / frotu the midst
of esteemed friends and the'pleatuint field of
my efforti for the past too years was taken
without, those acknowledgments to my School,
. Board of Trust* and the citizens of
Montrose generally,/which I would have felt
to be due to them, hadJeoutemplated a pro
longed absonce,from the place.
Knowing, as you do, the very pleasant re
lations which existed between the Board of
Trustees, the School and myself, and witness
ing.as you doubtless ofteis have done, the re
peated kindnesses bestowed on me by the cit
izens of Montrose, it will-not be difficult for
for you to understand that I came to the de
termination, (with your consent,) to Mike this
city my home,for a time,with great reluctance,
and only after becoming filly convinced that
duty to myself and the profession to which I
have committed mj abilities, demanded that
decision from me. It haribeen my happiness
to achieve, or at last, to enjoy very tolerable
'success wherever I have attempted to laborin
the State of Pennsylvania, but, I assure you
that next to the consciousness that my suet=
cones have flown naturally, from the correct,
oess of the system of teaching which has been
pursued, and the ability and faithfulness of
my assistants, no reward has seemed so grate
ful as the generous sympathies of the commu
nities arnong,whom I have dwelt, and such
sympathies, however undeserved, it has ever
been my happiness to enjoy at Montrose. • I
wish, therefore, to express toyou,
you to the Board of Trustees, and my young
-friends who did me the favor - to compose my
'School,and the citizens of Montrose, my ap
preciation of, their many kindnesses, and my
sincere wish that the seems+ they desire in
in the cause of edeicationo and the high deg
ree of personsl and social prosperity and hap
piness they merit, thij he their ezpenence for
all future time. .
