CAN FOREIGNERS VOTE THE RE ,
When the Republican party Wa , formed
it was found necessary to coax into its ranks
eleinents the most incompatible. The old
anti-slavery party was the basis of the or
ganization which at present opposes the
national Democracy. Its leaders professed
a great love for the foreign citizens, and the
Germans and a portion of the Irish, sympa
thizing to a certain degree with their Anti
Slavery sentiments, joined the ranks of th
new party, forgetful at the time, how mu,
they were indebted to the National Dhen .
racy, who always had treated them as in,
and as brothers. 'Rut the iteceskie

the Republican leader: , entered into flat'
nal embraces with the American or Kr,
Nothing party, and now is denominated
American Republican Party. Men who pro
fessed and felt the utmost aversion to grant
ing. tb the adopted citizen the glorious priv
leges of American civil liberty, in the mon
grel Republican organization, were placed
side by side with the adopted citizen. The
Americans in the Republican party outnum
ber the foreign born citizens. and Gni: natu
ral consequence followed they were treated
with contempt, and their rights totally dis
regarded and trampled upon. This was
done in Massachusetts by depriving them of
the right to vote until two years after their
naturalization, and the same spirit of nar
row-minded tyranny was manifested else
where wherever the Republican party had
At the approaching election, it would be
well for our adopted citizens to carefully
consider the character and antecedents o
the candidates presented for their suffra
res upon the two tickets, before they cas
their votes. Upon the one hand is present
ed the Democratic ticket, composed
sound, honest, intelligent, capable men
imbued with the liberal principles of Nu
Upon the other is presented the ticket o
the American Republican party, the Oppo
sition, the People's party, or whatever other
name you may choose to call it.
Let the adopted citizen inform himself
how many men upon that ticket, three years
ago were sneaking through the alleys and
bye ways in the dead hours of the night,
into coal banks and hay lofts, for the pur
pose, of concocting schemes, by which men,
bein in a foreign land, might be denied the
privileges guaranteed them to them by the
constitution of their adopted country. LI ai
the. American party succeeded in its mad
efforts at tyranny but little liberty would
have been left in this land. The dreadful
scenes of Louisville, of New Orleans, and of
Baltimore, tell the tale of the effects of the
_unbridled political licentiousness of Know
Nothingism. But the Democracy with a
strong hand rose up in its might and crush
ed out the distinctive life of this bastard
party . , and secured to all American citizens,
whether native or naturalized , bli•s , ing ,
liberty, the rights of conscience, and 1 . 11U,11
and exact justice to all classes. This
American party is now like a fungus upon the
body of the : Republican party. Its desires, it ,
ends, and its aims, are the same that they
ever were. Calling themselves Republicans,
these men are as much Know Nothings, as
they were three years ago. He, who has
once sworn that " he will not vote, nor give
his influence for any man for any office in
the gift of the people, unless he be an
American-born citizen, in favor of Ameri
cans ruling America, nor if lie be a Roman
Catholic," and that he will when elected or
appointed to any official station confering
upon him the power to do so remove all for
eigners, aliens, or Roman Catholics from of
fice or place, and that he Will in no case al.
point such to any office or place in his gift.'
Is not a safe man ever to be entrusted wi tl
power over your dearest rights ? Let no I
such man be trusted by any citizen adopted
or otherwise, who values principle and free
dom of thought and action in all matters,
political as well as religious. No foreio
born citizen, who respects himself, can re- .
comae it with his pride of manhood, to

The New England Soap.
The undoubted excellence of Prof thirdner'
celebrated New England soap has caused its in
troductioninto almost every family in this city.
As a shoving and toilet soap it is unrivalled.
No one uses it once without, when his stock is
exhausted, pursuing Oliver Twist's course,
asking for more: Through the medium ofpni
county fairs, the Professor has introduced it
to the people of the surrounding coun
try districts most successfully, and has now
returned to the city,and may be found as usual
at the Girard House, where his soap may be
obtained. If the certificates of excellence
from Governors,Congressmen,Divines and pro
fessional gentlemen of all classes, do not con
vince you of the qualities of this soap, you
have only to buy a cake, and, like Peter, you
I will believe.

The Great Eastern Steamship—Who First

We were greatly interested in reading the

With immense ships of the size of the Great
Elistern, was first coneeired by a citizen of
the Unit, , l states. While :Vl - r: Brunel, the

manner to entitle hint to an enduring repu

The London Tow's, in its interesting accoum

uses the following language
.• It was really almost a national reception,
and all seemed to have, as Englishmen, a share
in the finest, swiftest, strongest, and handsom
est ship which the world has ever yet seen.
There was but one drawback un the enthusiasm
and happiness of those who were on board,
which was caused by the absence of the emi
nent man to whom the conception of the ship
was au, -ii r. Brunel. A severe illness pre
vented his being pre-eat at the first triumph of
the grandest idea which has ever been originat
ed in naval architecture. -
A e..ni ii, the event is allu,ledto as "one which
will inaugurate a new era in ocean steamships
and ocean navigation.- New, it may be satis
factory to our national feelings to know that
the first suggestion of building such n vessel as
the Great La-tern, was made by fl citizen or
the I.' uiwa States. Mr. Brunel is undoubted
ly entitled to much credit in ably executing
this suggestion and putting it into practical
use: but the of the grandest idea
which lies ever been originated in naval archi
tecture " is not due to him, or any other En
glishman, as can be very readily shown.

ant accommodations for a sufficient number of
passengers and sufficient freight to make it
pay, at greatly reduced prices. You will also
acquire a degree of speed heretofore un
known. In a word, you convert the Atlantic
into a great ferry ; and as you arrive and depart,
you sec the in motion to make the trip.
When this is effected, as it errtainl2l will be,"
said Mr. It., '• we shall have attained a new
era in ocean navigation, which will affect the
world in its social, political and business re
lations., in 11 greater degree than any event of
modern times or rather, it is one of the events
which are rapidly changing our very nature
and condition here on earth."
Mr. Burden stated that when the Cunard
Company were about commencing the building
of their vessel ? , he went to England and sub
mitted his views on this subject, and proposed
to inv e st $lOO,OOO in the experiment, if they
would construct a VaSSel of the dimensions'
here indicated. John Bull listened to his plans,
and ventured to enlarge his vessels about fifty
feet in length. This is the same John Bull
who is now claiming for Mr. Brunel, one of
his countrymen, the honor of " the conception
of the greatest idea that has ever been origi
nated in naval architecture."
Failing in this proposition to the Cunard
Company, Mr. Burden, (who is a Seutehman
by birth - , but long a citizen of the United
States, where all his business operations are
carried on,) proceeded to Scotland, and °Wier
in Edinburgh or Glesgow, (1 forget which,)
published his plans in one of the papers of the
place. lie proposed to send use one of these
papers, and 1 think stated that ho had one of
them packed away in his trunk. I . never re
ceived the paper, it probably having passed out
of Mr. Burden's mind, and it being his own
suggestion; but I recollect distinctly his allu
sion to the article, and to some of thocriticisms
that were made on it et the time of its publi
cation. Is it not there that Mr. Brunel found
his idea? And is not that idea an American
conception, clothed in British dress ?
Mr. Burden is now in Europe, and I have
no doubt felt as deep an interest in the trial trip
of the Great Eastern, as did Mr. Brunel. Like
all great men, Mr. Burden is truly a modest
roan and utterly free from all feelings of sel
fishness, or contracted views. He would care
but ltttle who carries off the "wreath," provi
ded he could see the "ship go." And I think
it not improbable that on that trial trip, Hen
ry Burden might be seen moving about and
examining first this, then that department of
the vessel, and quietly rejoicing in the triumph
of the whole. J. A.

This man, a renegade Deniticrat, held forth
last night for nearly two hours, at Lafayette
Hall, to a meeting of Republicans, of which
Robert McKnight was President, Samuel Mc:
Keivy, Hugh Hammond, and Wm. Forsyth
Vico Presidents, and D. L. Eaton and Thos.
F. Wilson, Secretaries. The audience seemed
highly edified with his remarks, if applause be
a good criterion.
The speaker advanced no new ideas. His
speech was chiefly a tirade against Democracy,
and particularly bitter as to the followers of
Stephen A. Douglas. Popular Sovereignty,
ho said, was a dead issue, overturned by the
Drell Scott Decision—it had been tried in Kan
sas and had now served as purpose. He talked
about the apostacy of modern Democrats from
the princir.les of their great prototype Jeffer
son, the repeal of the Missouri Compromise,
the Homestead Bill, and the opposition of the
Democracy to it, the acquisition of Cuba, the
Post Office Bill, end as a natural sequence, the
Southern mail service, touched lightly on the
tariff question, and wound up with a regular
Kansas howl, atter the fashion of 'SG, about
which time his auditors begun to weary and
withdraw—having profited but little by the
The National Intelligencer Sustains the

the Question of Slavery In the Terrlto
WA , HIN(iTnN, Sept. 23, 1859
Mn. EDITOR: The Netionat Intelligencer,
well known as the ablest neutral journal in the
United States, once the organ of the admin
istrations of Madison and Monroe, and after
wards the leading paper of the Whig party
until its dissolution, has been reviewing, in a
series of articles, from one to live, the " ter
ritorial question," and in the last and conclud
ing number, emphatically sustains the policy
of Judge Douglas in regard to the subject of
slavery in the territories, and declares that
it will oppose all attempts to disturb the legis
lation of 1851, and the principles established
by the Kiinsas• Nebraska bill. After quoting
from the speeches of Senators Douglas, Benja
min, Badger, and others, in the Senate in
l SA, on the Nebraska bill, and from those of
Messrs. Cobh, Orr, Stephens, and Breckin ridge,
in the House, showing that they all agreed as
to the policy of banishing, from the halls of
Congress the subject of slavery, " the fertile
source of discontent and excitement," the In
tel/writer,- say!: "The legislation of the ear
lier days has been formally abrogated and pro
scribed, and it is certain that the practice M .
looking to Congress for the decision of gees ,
tions relating to the domestic institutions of the
Territories has been pronounced false in theory
on the one hand, and aware for the South on
the other. The Democracy Lave thus brought
our legislation on this head to a pass where
they can neither advance nor retrace their steps
in consistency With their pledge's. And dis
posed as we are to make the best of the anoma

Iron Furnaces, Foundries, Blacksmiths,
Copper and Tinsmiths. .cc.
A MOST SIMPLE AND EXPEDITIOUS
mode of purifying Coal and Ores, and one destined
to ect a great revolution in the Iron business, has been
discoveredby Mr. JESSE BURROUGHS, of this State.
Mr. Burroughs claims that Coal de-sulpherized by his
process will give more heat than four times the amount
of coke, and leave no cinders. That the Ore smelted
with this Coal wilt yield it, full complement of Iron,which
will be completed free from all foreign matter, and be
softer and tougher than Iron made by any otherprocess.
The cost of applying the process is very trilling, and
the smelting can be done In any style of furnace now
In Blacksmiths' forges it will make hard or brittle iron
soft, malleable and tough.
In Copper and Tinsnuthing, it will hold the solder to
the irons better, and give Hors heat than any other coal.
It is also much cheaper than Charcoal.
Mr. Burroughs and his Agent, 'Mr. Storer, are stopping
for a few days at. the ST. CLAIR HOTEL, and are pre
pared to sell State, County, City or Furnace rights to
this discovery • se,Szlvvo

CHICKERING d: SONS' PIANOS are thus spoken of by the
best artistes and critic:sin Our country:—
THALBERG says:—`They are beyond comparison th
best I have ever seen in the United States, and will corn-.
pare favorably with any I have ever known."
GiI:STAVE SATTER say--" The opinion which I ex-
pressed three yeare ago. has been more than confirmed
to me, by the continued use of them, via That for vol-
ume and int, e v‘atito of with nicety of articulation,
they are unequalled"
[From the National Intelligencer, Washington.]
They can safely bear comparison with instruments
from any part of the world, in point of tone, strength
and elasticity of touch."
[From the New Orleans Picayune.)
"For excellence of material, elegance of finish, and
faithfulness of workmanship, and above all for volume
and variety, mellow sweetness, brilliancy and perma
nence of tune, they are unequalled."
[From the Family Journal.]
"The peculiar musical qualities belonging to the Chick
ering instruments. are a full, musical, rich and pow
erful tone, tree from any wooden, noisy, loudness of
sound, so disagreeable to the sensitive musical ear.
They have also an easy, even and pleasant touch, and
will keep in tune better than any Pianos known.
The public are invited to call and examine inns*
splendid instruments, which are sold at
