The Secret War .Among The Secret
The factions which have been gathered,
like so many poisonous reptiles, into the ca
pacious bosom of the miscalled American
party, have finally begun to assail each other' s
with venomous ferocity. As yet, the war is
conducted in secret ; but daily events indi
cate that it will presently be utterly impossi
ble to restrain these embittered differences,
and that the disclosure, when it comes, will
present a strange contrast between the out
side varnish that hides, w ith deceptive polish,
the festering internal corruption. These fac
tions are like Milton's hell-hounds: "They
bark and howl within, unseen." When they
break forth, with their "hideous peal," then
shall we see more clearly the dangers of this
conspiracy against a nation's peace. Every
sign of the times, however, points to its rap
idly-approaching decay. Its sudden succes
ses will shortly be equalled by its sudden
overthrow. The torrent of fanaticism, swol
len so rapidly and so unexpectedly, and at
one time threatening to sweep down before
it every safeguard of society, and every ele
ment of religion and morals, has already
partially subsided, and will soon go back to
the foul source from whence it came. The
onset of bigotry is about to be avenged in a
speedy and disastrous reaction ; and those
who are even now rejoicing at the prospect
of receiving rewards for their vile. creeds will.
instead, be forced to gather the harvest of
the wrongs they have inflicted upon a hap
py people. "They have sown the storm, and
they must reap the whirlwind." The evi
dences of their fastcoming - overthrow multi
ply with every day. Let us take note of such
as are most prominent and apparent.
A large class of the know-nothings are
clamorous for public action. They have,
like Mr. Patton, of Virginia, grown ashamed
of their own secret plottings. They are dis
gusted with the mandate which compels
them to crawl, like Italian bravos, with muf
fled faces, along dark and dirty alleys.—
They are sick of the task of threading un
lighted stairs, and of shunning the passers
by, as if guilt and crime absorbed their souls.
They feel the reproach at their hearts, that
this seeking after concealment, this hiding
from the day, is not an American practice,
but is copied from those dark times when the
dagger of the assassin was whetted in the
dens of the depraved, and when the affront
of the morning was avenged by the hidden
blow of the night. Like Ajax, they cry,
"Give us but light, and we will ask no
more." Thus far, however, they have ap
pealed in vain against the spirit of darkness.
Every new effort only adds new tortures to
their condition ; but still they clamor that the
cloud shall be lifted off, and that they may
go out among their fellows without the brand
of humiliation upon their brows.
Another class are restive under the hideous
oaths they have taken. These are the men
who have boasted of their love of God,
fellow-creatures, of their veneration for mor
als. They have grown tired of deceit, and
sore under the yoke that oppresses them.—
They realize that the bonds they have assu
med are at variance with high and holy du
ties ; and that it is in vain to protest exclu
sive piety and patriotism when their secret
vow compels them to strike their brother for
his faith, and to wound their own country
because of its constitution. They recoil
from being any . longer tOrced to vote for eve
ry demagogue or know-nothing Who can
manage to corrupt a mojority of the order,
and they long to be released from obligations
which crush out their manhood, and fill them
Still another and a larger body of those
who have been entrapped into this conspira
cy have become weary and repentant of the
crusade to which they are committed upon
all who do not worship God after a particu
lar fashion. They did not contract for so
cruel and so exceptionless a proscription.—
They did not contract to break down every
Catholic, and, instead of such a citizen, to
take to their confidence and their affection
the atheist, the deist, and the Mormon.
The peculiar haters of Catholicity, moreo
ver, are alarmed at the idea that they are
bound to persecute their fellow-Protestants
born in another land ; and they find at last,
but too late, that the fanaticism to which
they are bound can haunt the follower of
Luther with quite as much bitterness as the
follower of the
. Pope—both being equally
guilty in the eyes of the know-nothing lea
ders, so far as the. one is an adopted citizen,
and the other a Catholic—Protestantism be
ing helpless to save the first, and Catholicity
being powerful to disfranchise the last
The clergy are finally enlightened as to
the fact that the know-nothings are not
the saints of the land, and more than one fol
lower of the meek and lowly Jesus revolts
from the consequences of the oaths he has ta
ken when he sees his new companions bru
talized in their secret meetings; hears their
profanities ; observes their treachery and their
intrigues, their heart burnings and deceit be
tween each other ; and then when he goes
out into the open day and marks the contrast
between the outrages of his brethren at the
ballot-boxes, their disorderly interruptions of
public meetings, their riots on the holy Sab
bath, and the quiet and uncomplaining spin
it of the men and women they pursue and
proscribe;—such a man feels at his heart the
keen rebue that always punishes over-zeal
and uncharitableness. And so the clergy
long for deliverance from "these hated
Already has California, through her State
know-nothing organization, extinguished the
proscriptive religious element which has
been the life and the soul of the order in the
Atlantic cities and States! Here, then, is a
difference that strikes at the very root of the
whole structure of the secret conspiracy.—
Without this feature the whole movement
would have been a mere phantom of the
NOW many thousand of those who have
become committed to this party, however,
are also at war with the know-nothing obli

fear the effect of this sweeping exclusion.—
They cannot answer the argument that emi
gration is useful to our country, and they
dare not meet the fact that a horde of dis
franchised aliens in our midst would be hurt
ful to the country in all its relations, social
Finally, it is notorious that the difference
between the know-nothings of the South and
their confederates of the North is a deadly
and an inextinguishable one. -State organi
zations in New England have avowed aboli
tion doctrines as part of their settled creed ;
and wherever in the free States any formal
attempt has been made by the know-noth
ings to disavow abolition and to avow ;la
tional principles, excitement and confusion
have been the result. The very last demon.
stration in proof of this was at Chicago. I!-
Such is the present condition of this new
party ! Torn by dissention, deserted by
those who have tasted of its exactions, and
grown tired of its proscriptions ; with the
fundimental articles of its creed defended by
the faithful in one region, and denounced by
the faithful in another; with its doctrines
denied by those who profess to advocate them
—how can such a combination survive the
onset of intelligent, manly, and resistless
antagonism ? How can it be national, when
in the South its oracles defy the abolitionists,
and in the North its leaders assiil the South ?
How cart it be consistent, when on one hand
its terrors are let loose upon the Catholic,
and on the other upon the Protestant? How
cart it be moral, when it persecutes the be
liever in the Pape, and forgives the unbelie
ver in God ? How can it be a compacted or
ganization, when one State proclaims tole
ration and the other repudiates it I How
can it command respect, when one portion
of its followers acts in the dark and another
clamors for public action I How can it be
permanent, when the clergy that have built
it up fly before the excesses of its followers?
Demagogues may combine for party and
for plunder, but a political combination to be
permanent and to be salutary must stand up
on the rock of principle. It would be as vain
to look for good results from any organiza
tion whose rank and file have no common,
definitive, and well-settled policy and creed,
as it would be to see the Christian church

Know-Nothing Election Riots in Lou-
Saturday morning early a crowd of jack
als, hyenas and bawdy house bullies took
possession of the polls in the First and Sec
ond Wards, swearing that no anti-Know-
Nothing, foreigner or not, should be allow
ed to vote, or even approach the polls; and
they kept their word faithfully. A few of
the incidents we will give our readers:
Dr. Strader, passing down Main street
from the polls, was stoned by the crowd,
and compelled to run. This was about the
An aged German, some sixty years old,
was standing on the door sill of his house on
Clay street, near Main, saying nothing to
anybody when the crowd assaulted him,
dragged him into the :,tieet, and beat him.
IL. F. Baird, Esq., endeavored to protect him,
but without avail.
Geo. W, Noble went into the Fifth Ward
polls while the crowd were off at a fight, and
deposited his vote. On corning out a large
man asked him how he voted. "As I plea
sed," was the reply, when be was knocked
down. Getting up, he was knocked down a
second and a third time, and then dragged
some distance by the hair of his head.
Au old German, apparently about 70 years
of age, was beaten almost to a jells', and left
covered with blood. Young Bamberger, in
quietly passing along, was pursued for seve
ral squares, and succeeded in escaping only
by hiding in an old building.
A large crowd pursued two Germans from
the First Ward Polls to the United States
Brewery, on Market just below Wenzel
street. An aged man seeing the crowd
coming, hurried to pass through a private al
ley into his own house. Before he could
open fhn g land paz..., in two or more assaul
ted him, and knocked him down. Trying
to get up, he begged for his life; het not
his age. his gray hairs nor his entreaties
were of any avail ; the miscreant assaulting
him with a slung shot—the blow missed its
aim, striking the wall of the house. At that
moment the crowd diverted attention to the
house of P. Merkel, keeper of the brewery,
and the poor old marl escaped.
The main crowd were furious in their
pursuit of the two young Germans. They
assaulted the house, demolished the batroom,
breaking everything in it, and beat Mr.
Merkel in a mast cruel manner. Not satis
fied, the mob pushed on through the house,
breaking and tearing to pieces all that came
in their way—chairs, beds, dishes,• pictures,
and glasses. Up stairs they pushed, into
the room where Mrs. 'Merkel and her chil
dren were ; some one struck her a severe
blow on the shoulder. Four or five shots
were fired into the room where the children
Chas., Hunt, 'Merkel's driver, was pursued
up stairs and shot at, the ball lodging in the
door-casing above his head ; the crowd over
took him, knocked him down and beat him
nearly to death.
MI the furniture in the house, ex.ept iu
two small rooms back, was entirely destroy
ed. Mr. Hunt was robbed of SYS. The
money drawer in Mr. Merkel's barroom was_
rifled of its contents, something over $5O.
Two young Germans, J. Snyder and C.
Rush, were cot and mangled in a terrible
manner, one of them will, in all probability,
lose one of his eyes ; an attempt was mane
to fire the house.
The crowd, returning from the brewery,
stopped a milkman's wagon. The young
son of the milkman frightened, jumped out
and ran down the street screaming with
terror. A. blacksmith near by rushed out
and endeavored to protect him ; for this hu
mane attempt the crowd stoned him.
A funeral proceeding up Jefferson st., to
the grave yard, was stoned.
The drug store, corner of Main and Camp
bell, was stoned.
A. shoe store, on . Main, near Clay, was al
A wagoner from Shelby county, while
passing along quietly, was assaulted and
forced to run.
In the second Ward. about 9 o' clock, a
German living on Jefferson street, between
Preston and Jackson streets, stepped out of
his house to take a child of his from the
sidewalk, when a crowd that was passing
for "some fun," knocked him down with the
infant in his arms.
About the same time Mr Frishe, a candi
date for magistrate, went with a friend to
the Second Ward polls to vote, and were
assaulted and severely beaten.
Mr. Jacob Seibert, going to the polls, was
knocked down by one and severely beaten by
As Mr. W. Veiieh was about entering the
engine house he was dragged out and beaten.
A crowd on Jefforson street knocked down
an old German whitewasher, and while he
was down stamped on him, kicked and heat
him. About a square further off the same
crowd assaulted an old man—a very old man
—a poor man, whose clothes were ail tatter
ed and torn, whose steps were feeble with
the weight of years on his head—and him
they beat unmercifully.
Captain Knapp was assaulted, but managed
to escape. A mechanic, returning fiom his
day's work, passing on the opposite side of
the street, was assaulted and chased several
squares.. The following persons were also beaten,
but we are unable to give the circumstan:

The First Ward was the scene in the af
ternoon of great excitement—pistols firing—
men running women and children scream
ing—nor was the firing confined to the vicin
ity of the polls.
There are other incidents connected with
the election, for which we have not room;
they are, however, of the same stamp as
above-mentioned, fn all, there were not
less than from 100 to 150 persons injured
during the day, in the two wards.

Whereupon Thomas A. Maguire was decla
red duly elected as the Delegate.
Mr. Williams offered the following resolu
tions, which were considered and passed
Resolved, That we fully endorse the ad
ministration of President Pierce in his man
agement of the foreign and domestic affairs
of the general government, and believe
him to have been actuated by a true regard
to the best interests of the American peo
I?csolued That the administration of James
Pollock, so far as it has been developed, has
signally failed to meet the exaggerated prom
ises of his friends, and has realized the worst
predictions of his political enemies; and that
the action of his Know-Nothing friends du
ring the recent session of the Legislature,
has indelibly stamped it as a byword 'and re
proach throughout the length and breadth of
the Common wealth.
Resolved, That the bill passed by the Leg•
islature for the sale of the Main Line, was
uncalled for by the people, and is a flagrant
outrage upon their rights.
Resolved That while we are decidedly in
favor of all proper and legitimate legislation
for the'suppression of Intemperance, we are
just as decidedly opposed to the recent act of
the Legislatnre on the 'subject, (now com
monly kilown - as the Jog Law.) We be
lieve that it will immeasurably fail in rem
edying the evil complained of—that it is man
ifestly unjust in its provisions—and that it
ought to be expunged from the Statute book.
Resolved, That we regard Know-Nothing
ism as the most infamous political heresy of
modern times—that its ranks are composed
of unscrupulous demagogues and political
midnight assassins—of men who, while they
hypocritically profess friendship to their
neighbor, would stab him in the dark, and
rob him of his constitutional rights.
Resolved, That recent indications through
out the country afford gratifying evidence
that error is harmless when reason is left to
combat it--that the sceptre is about to fall
from the hands of this modern political Mo
loch, Know-Nothingism, and that the intelli
gence of the American people will, with one
united voice, blot out its ephemeral existence,
and number it with the things that were, a
warning to all political traitors who may
hereafter seek to violate the constitution of
their country, and trample civil and religions
liberty under the heel of secret midnight con
Resolved, That we repose full confidence
in the honesty, integrity, and demooracy of
our Senator, Hon. Joint - CRESSWELL, Jr., and
that whatever difference of opinion may be
honestly entertained in reference to his votes
on the question of the election of United
States Senator, we believe he was not gov
erned by any sinister motives, but that he
acted from the dictates of his heart.
Rcsolred, That this Convention entertain
a very high opinion of the inter.r.rity, capaci
ty and democracy of WILLIAM S. CAMPBELL,
Esq.. of Allegheny county, and we do hereby
instruct the delegate this day appointed to
vote for and use all honorable means to se
cure his nomination in the Democratic 'Con
vention, (to nominate a person for Canal
Commissioner,) to be held in Harrisburg on
the 4th ofJuly next.
Resolved, That Thomas A. Maguire be ap
pointed to represent this Senatorial District
in said Convention, with power to appoint a
subsitute, should he net be able to attend,
and whose duty it will be to carry out the

RENUNCIATION OF KNOW NOTHING ISM.-
Mr. Wrn D. Doll, or Frederick, Al., having
joined the Know-Nothings, and found out
what the concern is made of, now renounces
and denounces it as a thing of evil. He says
in a communication to the Citizen
"I attended, I think, but four meetings,
certainly not more than six, which were am
ply sufficient to convince me that no man of
true patriotism and liberal feelings could re
main among them without sacrificing his
honor, and compromising his freedom of will
and opinion. Instead of meeting with the
patriotic, the intelligent, and the liberal, with
a few exceptions, I met with the bigot, the
intolerant, the proscriptionist, the superanua
ted and broken down leaders of the old Whig
Party, and the disappointed office-seeking
Democrat. Its main body being men of that
creed,, the residue, those who had once acted ;
with the Democratic party. I saw that its
aim was to break down the party of which
I had been a member from my youth, and
under whose wise, republican, and generous
policy my Country had grown rich, great and.
powerful, and I determined to eschew it as a
thing of evil—evil in its origin and evil in its
pursuits. Under Democratic rule I had al
ways been free to act, think and speak for
myself. I had never been controlled by eau
cusses or cliques-. I voted as I pleased, and
no one ever dared to question the propriety of
my conduct ; but there I was bound in will
and purpose, to do as those in authority might
dictate, under pain of the dreadful displeas
ure of those who seek power, place and prof
it by the organization, and who give direc
tion to it. I regard it as a foul egg, hatched
after a protracted and elaborate incubation in
the old Whig nest, and whose chick strongly
resembles in form and feature, the Craven
bird ancient Federalism, and advise all my
Democratic fellow-citizens to give no heed to
its outward and specious professions of
"Americanism," for these are a farce, a mock
