A Patriotic Letter.
We publish below, the eloquent, wise; pa
triotic and christian letter of the distinguish
ed statesn:an whose.riame heads this article.
Socha letter is worthy of such a man. 'Men
like CASS, CLAY, CALLIOUN, WinsTER, and
those still greater names, JACKStN, 'JEFFER
SON, and the immortal WASHINGTON,
could never sympathize, much less be asso
ciated with so lonia thing as-Know-Nothing
intolerance and falsehood. The class of men
to which Cass belongs, ranks - with the proud
est list of world rulers to be found in - all -his
tory. The genius, -fame and virtue• of such
men will never be found tarnished by con-,
tact with the leprosy of bigoted .fanaticism
and religious.-persecution. The iniquitous
sinks of Know-Nothing, bigotry and oppres
sion are fitting places only for cast-off 'fifth
rate politicians of desperate fortunes, and the
ignorant herd of fanatics who are ruled by
designing men through appeals to their 'ani
mal -excitability and uncultivated- instinct.

ties, and .of no party, listen -to the calm
voice of an aged patriot "..,

DEAR SIR :—lt is now more than !two
years since I have attended a public festival,
and the same afflicting circumstances . which
led me to adopt this course, yet operate to
render me indisposed to change it. While,
therefore, [.thank you and those associated
with you, for the invitation to attend the cel
ebration of St. Patrick's 'day, on the 17th,

But, ,though I shall not be with yin on
that interesting occasion ) , yet cam realize
and appreCiate the feeling with which. you
will 'assertible to recall the glories of the-land I
of. your birth•or descent, in this land of your
hopes and homes ; and to do honor to the
memory of the Apostle of Christianity, who
first carried the Gospel of Jesus to the Pagan
inhabitants 'of Ireland. Obeying the injunc
tio» of the Scriptures, he "added knowledge
to virtue," though in these latter days we
are,called upon to glory in ignorance, and to
fOund our claims to confidence upon know
noticing. Your illustrious missionarY be
longed-to the great Order -of knoll/ some
things—to that class of it indeed which
knows a great deal, and he deserves the grat
itude of mankind for imparting what he knew
to others, instead of endeavoring to "darken
counsel by words without knowledge:" lion
or therefore to one of the benefactors of the
human race, and let. us render it the more
freely now, when local and sectarian preju
dices are striving' to create a distinction
among us,_ as unjust as they are unconstitu
tional. But we have nothing eventually to
fear from error or oppression, while, as Mr.
Jefferson well said, "reason is left free to
combat it." That freedom - is a portion of
our heritage and it will triumph over this de
lusion as it has triumphed over many a one
heretofore, and will triumph over many a
one hereafter ; those who have participated
in it will awaken to the conviction that the
worth'of an American citizen. does not de
pend upon the place of his birth, nor his
claim to confidence upOn 'his religious faith,
and upon the mode in which he worships
that .God, who is equally the God of the
Catholic and of the Protestant = who. guided
and protected our fathers in the days of their
troubles and trials and will we'humbly hope,
guide and protect us and.our children when
ever troubles and trials shall beset our Na
tional path. There is no danger, if we Only
appreciate the blessings we enjoy in a spirit
of mutual conciliation and forbearance, and
with thankfulness to Him who gave them,
and may take them a,way.
I am dear sir, with great, regard,
Truly - Yours, LEWIS 'CASS.
.• Col, SIT:' O'CA LL iGHAN ) President:
, Protection to Thieves . and Burglars. •
We take the folldwing from a late number
of the Philadelphia Pennsylvanian. -
"A short time since, the Episcopal church
situate near Bustleton was entered burglari
ously during the night, and everything valu
able which could be taken away by the rob
bers was, carried off. In addition to this; the
most indecent and offensive acts wereperpe
trated while the thieves were in the sanctua
ry dedicated to the services of the Great
thor. We coakl really believe, from what
we have seen of the workings oiKnoW-Noth
ingism outside of the lodges, and from the
sacrilegious and awful character of the oaths
administered, that its members were prepar
ed for any clime, but we had riot .supposed
that the signs of the order were used as secu
rity against arrest whenever one of their
number was guilty of a henious offence.
But such appears to be the case. After the
robbery had been commited at the church,
and as the Know-Nothing thieves were
about to leave, they pinned a three-cornered
piece of white paper to the door, with two
of their cabalistic signs used in secret order
written upon it. One of the signs resem
bled a scoop net, with the handle attached--:-
a very appropriate sign, as they had scooped
every thing valuable out of the church----and
the other was like a pot hook, with the lower
crook greatly enlarged, and containing two
straight marks within the lower half-circle.
"We have heard of these signs before, and
though never explained to us, we think that
we have deciphered their meaning. it is as
follows : "The net has a treble meaning,
and is to notify the Know-Nothing police
officers that the thieves belong to their order;
that they had gathered all that wasio be had
in the place robbed, of an any value, and
that they (the policemen) were not to spread
the net of the law for their detection. The
handle of the net running through to the up
per part of the circle, and thus dividing it
into two parts, was to indicate that the
thieves would, share with the,Tolicernen..
secorkirsign, or poi -hook, wat -to tio
:-tifythe officers of their Obligation, to:the
..ifect,that alit ie me,tribera• of the :secre*mrder,

and,the two straighi'mat , ..3,y,ioin the'JOyger:
half-Circle indicate that'two persons
tea the act, and now throw themselves,,iiiii
the embrace or body of the order for priiieb-.
lion. The reason of . the two marks being
straight, and the
-half-circle fell, was to noti
fy the policemen that the thieves: lA-ere - all
straight in their principles, and in-full meat
bersiiip in the order. A very slight mark
was drawn • across the two straight,. lines,
.which implied that the two thieves had pas
through all the degrees of the 'lodge's,
fand :were-now members of the grand council.
i One of ;the straight marks was quite-heavy,
♦ denoted that one of the thieves was
giecafei of heavier in' antliorify iii the secret
order than' the other; We'observed . ' an-al
'most imperceptible curvature in.what- - we
have before called a slight mark .drawn
through the Straight ones,, 'This indicated
that the two Know - Nothindfobbershad been
compelled to yield td circumstances, or-pov
erty, in. plundering the church..” - .. -
Opinion of an licine.at
-We clip the following' article from a late *
number of the Landaster -Examirier, the
Whig o organ of Lancaster comity. Mr.-Dar
lingtonn deServes credit for ' thus plainly
and pointedly expressing his diSapprohation
of Goy. 'Pollock's course in making his - Op-
Pointments, and W-e 'hope he 'will deal in
the - same way with some of his measures :
THE GOVERNOR'S APP OINTMENT 9.--=-The
selection of Mr.' Henry Davis as Leather In
spector, completes the State appointments of
the present executive. We , have no•knowl
edge of Mr. Davis's claims or qualifications,
but• an - exposure containedin the Daily News
of last Saturday, is not calculated to imp,,ress
one very ,highly in .his favor.
It is perhaps as difficult a task as could be
undgrtaken, to select a score out.of the hun
dreds of applicants for the offices to the gift
of the Governor it each change of an admin
istration. More or less dissatisfaction : will
always,exist, with or.without sufficient.oanse.
We are compelled tO saY, however,- in ell
candor, that Gov. Pollock has been singillar
ly unfortunate in his selections-to what are
'considered •the lucrative stations. The suc
cessful applicants 7 —so far,-as we know Ahem

to the office. .He is an inveterate office limi
ter, having been out for some office at every
election that has been held in Philadelphia
for the last ten years. Last year he 'ran
twice—in June for City Attorney and in Oc

that office comes in the way of tanners—
while lawyers always have 'their "platters

to belong of right to the trade and there are
many members who would doubtless have

boasted that he had secured the appointment
of k- n's on the committee appointed to re

have been a more venial offence, tried .in a

could boast of suth double-distilled mean

than a lucrative office. The excuse advan

is not to be held accountable to the ordina

was evidently born under•a hickey star, as it
falls to the lot of few to have two lucrative

The democracy refuse to lead them,and they
are, - therefore, (Liven for captains into those

SINGULAR MATZRNAL FREAK. —A day or
two ago we witnessed one of those smo•u
lar" freaks of animal life, that sometimes take
naturalists by surprise. It was nothing more
nor less than a cat sucklinrY, add apparently
rearing, with all the motherly c. affection she
shows her own offspring, a couple
rats! It appeari that a cat beloniitig to' the
El change Hotel, gave birth; one day 'last
Avemk, to three, kittens.' .A cozy place was
axed for puss and her progeny in an empty
barrel. A few days after the' event one of
the-waiters attached to the hotel discovered a
rat's nest, from Which- he took seven bewly
born rats.: Just, for the 'fun of the thing, be
concluded to,treat the old cat to two of them,
by Way of a dinner. He accordingly, threw
them into - the barrel,. but' the cat, instead of
eating them up;:•as was naturally supptised,
drew them toward her, .and commenced
suckling . and carressing them, .andapparent
ly them much kindness ; . and up to
thiS day the rats are still under the maternal
care of puss, where any person that chooses
can see them. Whether, the cat spared them
to draw.frorri her a superabundance. of nour
ishment, Or whether She done 'so out of pure
pity for their helpless oondition,' is d'inatter
