The Secret Order of the Day
The arrogance and active malignity of the
secret political organization have not deter
red the democratic press from exposing its
baseness and dangerous tendencies. Too
many worthy and well-meaning men have
been enticed into it—an effort to get them
out of the trap is not out of place. Thousands
of civil and decently-educated men, noted
for frankness and independence, have been
led to believe it right to join a society which
conceals its name, and would conceal its ex
istence; to repudiate publicly a party they
act with privately; and to continue in friend
ly political and social relations with persons
whom they are bound by solemn oaths to de
ceive, betray, and injure ; and even profes
sing Christians—nay, ministers of the Gos
pel themselves—are found among the mem
bers of an order whose leading feature is to
ignore the Divine command, " thou shalt not
We do not need to assume the truth of the
revelations made in various ( paiters by re
pentant or treacherous know-nothings, in or
der -to squash the pretensions of the order to
rank among honest political parties. The
editors suspected of knowing declare them
false; but as they disclaim, at the same time,
all personal knowledge of the subject-matter,
their declaration carries with it no convic
tion. In fact, truth and open-dealing seem
to be counted for nothing compared with the
preservation of the mystery which surrounds
the order. The man who has gone through
the pompous - promise of some petty lodge
seems to think that thereafter, for him, lying
is lagitirnate, and fibbing no falsehood. It is
enough for our purpose to assume facts know
ing of all men: t hat the order - exists; though
membership of it is universally disclaimed;
that men who belong to it retain ostensibly
their connexion with the old parties, go into
whig and democratic conventions, and pledge
themselves, before the world, to support the
party nominations, while at heart they are
resolved - to betray _them at the polls. We
will not insult our readereby citing cases - by
way of illustration.
General distrust is exhaled from the know
nothing lodes. The oldest acquaintances
suspect each other of incincerity. Smith has
known Thompson for twenty years, and con
fided in him ; they have been tc market and
church together, have discussed politics a
thousand times without quarrelling, have
learned to agree to differ pleasantly; but. Smith
now thinks Thompson a traitor to the party,
while Thompson returns the compliment by
voting Smith a cunning old fox. Both of them
perhaps, have doubts about, the minister of
their church, and shrewdly suspect the mer
chant and the miller of the township. A
tradesman finds that all his Catholic custo
mers have suddenly left him ; a Whig nomi
nee, sure of - success until the polls are open
ed is abandoned without notice by nine-tenths
of those - who brought him before the people;
and his democratic opponent is irreparably
injured with his own party by receiving an
immense, but unexpected, majority. Decep
tion is everywhere suspected because two of
ten practised. The friend by your fireside
may be a spy, the neighbor over the way an
enemy sworn to exclude you from every post
of profit or honor, ant the delegate to the
same political convention a traitor.
This geeeral deception and distrust consti
tute an evil of fearful magnitude. The na
tional character, so long distinguished for'
manly sincerity,.is in danger of being broken
down into falsehood and equivocation. The
religious sentiment of our people, hitherto so
broad in its scope and so 'philanthropic in its
aims, is in danger of degenerating into un
christian prejudice and narrow intolerance.
The countenance given to this subterrane
an order by preachers of Christianity is sig
nificant as to the extent of the evil. It would
nonplus them sadly to be called upon to re
concile know-nothingism with the precepts
enjoining all believers to profess the truth.—
and what would they do with the martyrs?
If one may disclaim all knowledge of an or
der to which he belongs, Peter was right
in denying his Lord. Know-Nothingism is
'he virtual condemnation of that noble army
of martyr= which, from the Saviour's day to
the present, has preferred the cross, the axe,
the gibbet, or the stake, to disclaiming their
allegiance to Christ. If the order is right,
the martyrs should have recanted, renegade
ism is a virtue, Christians may spit and tram
ple on the Cross in Japan, sturdy virtue is
foolish obstinacy and unwavering faith a big- .
otry fit only for old women. And yet, it is
said, there are fifty or sixty preachers return
ed' bv the know-nothings to the Massachu
setts legislature. Who or what they ate we
know not; .they may be canting cobblers,
tinkers turned theologians, or regularly-edu
cated clergymen; but of one thing we are
certain—they will gain no laurels in their
new vocation. Religion will be worse than
politics no better for the change. The time
is gone when the world was satisfied with
blundering or intolerant laws because the le
gislator professed to make them " in the name
of God;" and the time is gone when the press
spared an unprincipled politician because he
was a poor priest.
All the manifestations of know-nothing
ism indicate that the order is under the con
trol of persons who are either too corrupt or
too feeble to attain consideration in regular
organizations, or whose bigotry and fanati
cism predominate over their respect for the
rights of others. The rank and file is com
posed of good citizens, seduced by the cry,
"Americans should rule in America;" arid of
good Protestants, drawn into an anti-Catholic
crusade by astounding revelations of the un
holy designs of Pope Pius upon the liberties
of America. We do not attach much impor
tance to the attempt to outl , w every man
born in a foreign land; immigration is so ev
idently the interest of many of our States
that we entertain little fear on that head.—
But the foray against a certain sect is more
dangerous: The real object of not a few of
the'know-nothing leaders is co crush the
Catholic church; their means of effecting this
,by abridging the rights of Catholic citi
zens. While the liberal mind of Protestant
E'irope tends towards Catholic emancipation,
these United States, consecrated to freedom
of religions opinion, are to be made the thea
tre of Catholic enslavement. Religions pro
fession, already made by designing men a
profitable game to play at, is.to become, un
der the new phase of religious intolerance,
the high road to political office.
We are willing to acquit the mass of know
nothings of all well-defined notions of the
ulterior-views formed by their leaders. They
think it patriotism to crusade against the
Catholics.. They flatter themselves with be
ing ioad citizens, when they are only grati
fying the feelings of dislike and revenge
which-men naturally feel towards those who
differ with.thorn in opinion. Toleration has
always been held a virtue, even by inquisi
tors, but one not practicable for the time be
ing. We acquit, too, the leaders of all in
tention to whip, burn, or imprison the Catho
lics. They wish, forsooth, for the present,
only to force them to adopt for their children
the Protestant translation of the Bible, or lose
all the benefit of the public schools for whose
support they are taxed, and to exclude them
from all offices of emolument or honor. Their
next move will probably be to force the bish
ops to deed all the church property to con
gregational trustees. Then will follow
vexations of—we know not what character.
One reverend gentleman, a Protestant bishop
already proposes to look beyond Catholocism,
and require a religious test of all applicants
for citizenship. He would have no unortho
dox person naturalized. A religious writer
of considerable celebrity, the author of "New
Themes for the Protestant Clergy," has writ
ten a volume to show that the United States
belong of right to the orthodox Protestant
sects, and that all other exists only by their
good pleasure arid teleralion. If common
sense be not soon restored to the neophytes.
of the order, there Is no telling what absur
dities are in store for the public in the way
of know-nothingism run mad.
Every good citizen must deprecate, as we
do, the head-long speed with which know
nothingism would drive the country into sec
tarian legi,lation, local feuds, and perhaps ci
vil war. The aegis of our republic is broad
enough to cover all sects. Catholic and
Protestant, Episcopalian and Methodist, Sha
ker and Dunkard, can all live in peace with
in the ample limits of republican Democracy.
II State legislation should be necessary to
check the accumulation of property in the
hands of religious corporations, it should be
general in its application, and not the instru
ment of sectarian animosity. The crusade
against one sect by a combination or others
can result in nothing but evil. All should
be protected so long as they respect law and
public decency. Not a single Catholic will
be won to protestanism by the operations of
know-nothingism. Not one can be worried
' into a better t„heology. We have never heard
of a single convert to Brahmanism because
the Hindoo barbers refuse to shave Christians.
Mussulmen touch the ground with their fore
' head in their devotions ; and the attempt to
force his subjects to wear rims to their caps
might cost the Sultan his throne. As human
nature is the same in America as elsewhere,
we anticipate nothing but bad blood, bitter
controversiEs, street riots, and personal perse
cution from this latest ebullution of sectari
anism. But these results will be temporary ;
for, according to the statement of its own
friends, know-nothingisrn is essentially eph
A slight knowledge of human nature will
show,' says Mr. Colquhoon, "that when a
man gets on a little in the world he is desi
rous of getting on a little further." Such is
the growth of provident habits that it has
been said, if a journeyman lays by the first
five shillings his fortune is made. Mr. Wm.
Hall, who has bestowed great attention on
the state of the laboring poor, declares, he
never knew an instance of one who had sav
ed money coming to the parish. And he
adds moreover that "those individuals who
save money arc better workmen : if they do
not work better, they behave better and are
more respectable, and I would sooner have
in my trade a hundred men who save money,
than two hundred who would spend every
shilling they get. In proportion as individ
uals save a little money their morals are much
better ; they husband that little, and there is
a superior tone given to their morals, arid
they behave better for knowing they have a
little stake in society." It is scarcely neces
sary to remark that habits of thoughtfulness
and frugality are at all times of immense im

Electro-Magnet Lightning Rods
A FTER many years' close investigation
and numerous experiments, the Pattentce
sakes pleasure in informing the public that lie
has arrived at the true principles of protecting
families, dwellings and property from the de
structive influence of Lightning. The cal
amities that every City, Town, Village and
Country falls victim to annually. through the
gross negligence of its inhabitants, is beyond
calculation, especially when the remedy is so
easy to obtain--this is found in Armitage's
Patent Magnetic Lightning Rods, and in
this alone. This Rod has been examined by
the most scientific gentlemen in the world—
Professors M'Murtrie, Johnson, Wallor and
many others that have examined them, recom
mend and speak of them in the highest terms
of approbation, and have pronounced them the
only safe rods in use in this or any other coun
try, for the protection of Lives and Property.—
One advantage is to divide and throw back a
part of the electric fluid harmless to the clouds;
in time of a stroke this enables the rod to con
duct that portion of fluid that belongs to the
earth without the slightest danger of leaving
the conductor. This rod has many other ad
vantages over the old one. Tho only place of
