The Know-Nothings akid tho Organ-
Grinders in Germany.
American tourists will recollect to have fre
quently been attracted at .the fairs and mar
kets in Germany by a not alwa:ys very melo
' dious concert, performed by an. organ-grinder,
and accompanied, usually by his heal t-ren
, ding song. , From time to time he will, at
certain places in his song, point with a long
stick at a gaudily-painted picture, -which is
put up at a wall, corner of • a horse, &c., and
represents to the eye the scenes the meaning
.of which his voice and barrel-organ tries to
impress upon_ the ears -of his aumence, com
monly consisting, in the greater portion, of
'country people. • Ef there has been commit
ted any great and itideous crime, as murder,
- poisoning, you may be sure that these
devotees of both Orpheus and Apollo will be
:ready at the next country fair to' exhibit their
pictures, appropriate songs, and descriptions
-pf the horrible deeds, in the above-mentioned
,:iiatiner. They will - Sell you at the same
tthie "das Lied und die Beschreibung" (song
and description) for one silbergroschen, which
the country people will take home to read-
Iduring the long winter evenings to their fam
ilies and- servants, as -a warning example to
'beware of such acts of depravity.
Now, it is less amusing, than grievous to
learn that the heroiem of the know-nothings
at Louisville has found by these German
Homers a similar acknowledgement. On
their pictures you will perceive how a dozen
-or more "Americans" attack one poor, unof
fendieg German, or -how they are chasing
through the streets some two or three-Irish
men ; further, you will see painted in glaring
colors how they burn the houses and drive
women and children back into the flames, to
find a miserable and most cruel grave under
the smouldering and scorching ruins of their
hard-earned property. The organ-grinder
will tell you, in the intervals of his
mance, that 'all this has been donen the
freest country on earth, without legal pun
ishment—even without reprimand from the
authorities. The country people and others,
standing around the'picture, will eagerly buy
the "Louisville Lied und Beschreibung, 7 ' and
',e7o-Shutlering home, blessing themselves to
'be not in that "c i vilized" country, where
men, women, and children are burnt alive,
-and pitying those who are-there.
Will-not history—the just and grave judge
of mankind—census? such acts with the se
verity they deserve? The good character
and reputation of the American nation would
have been sustained if, instead of their foul
deeds being sanctioned by the law, the Lou
isville rioters - had 'been brought before the
'bar of justice. The present generation may,
for its political opinions, be silent; but the
next one will and must condemn. Have we
not reason to be ashamed in reading such
things as above given? May they be insig
nificant in their origin ; their consequences
are not T. The public opinion, of other civili
zed nations will be against us. Of course,
the European Kings, who always have watch
ed with jealousy te immense exodus of val
uable producing power and capital, will wel
come such acts. The consequences, in this
country, are - immediate, and already visible.
The immigration of this year will Fail short
of about 200,000 against that of the prece
ding year. If we presume that they brought
with them per head_ only thirty dollars,
;(which is the very lowest rate,) our country
has lost in one . year six millions of dollars in
specie; and if we value the producing power
.of each head at only fifty dollars, our loss Will
amount to ten millions more. But the know
nothings do not or will not know anything
about these facts, until they will perceive in
- their own pockets the material loss of the la
borious immigrant. The West and all the
new States will feel it the most. The immi
grants who cultivated the wilderness benefit
ed not only themselves, but also their -Ameri
can n eig hbo rs Washing ton Union. --

THE SLAVE • RESCUE.
By the Court proceedings to-day, it well be
seen that James Parsons, jr., for legally arrest
ing a slave, belonging to his uncle, has had a
true bill presented against him by the Grand
Inquest of Blair county I Of course the jury
is not to blame in the matter, even if they
were governed by the evidence of the prosecu
tor, and not by that of the negro whom it is
alleged was about to be kidnapped. Mr.
Parsons gave the required security and left
As was to be expected, those "friends of hu.
manity," the editors of the Register and the
Whig, take strong, grounds in favor of the ne
gro and against Parsons. The Whig even
goes so far as to call him a kidnapper,. in the
absence of any proof.
If Parsons was a kidnapper would any man
for a moment suppose that he would attempt
to carry off a free negro in broad daylight 1
We thiuk not. Kidnapping is a dangerous
profession and we never heard of it being car
ried on only under cover of night, even before
Abolitionism became mixed up in the poli
tics of the country.
If Parsons was a kidnapper how does it
come that the negro Green recognized him
in the ears and immediately jumped out and
•endeavored to escape?
If Parsons was a kidnapper how does it
come that Green acknowledged, in presence
of a dozen persons, in Kellerman's tavern,
that he had ran away ?
If Parsons was a kidnapper why did the
negroes and their sympathizers in Gaysport
carry Green off? Surely Green had nothing to
fear if he was not the lawful property of Par
sons, and by establishing his freedom, he
could have aided at once in convicting Par
sons of an attempt to kidnap.
There is no doubt at all but that Green was
the property of Parsons; Sr., and his arrest
was strictly in accordance with the Fugitive
Slave LaW. Young Parsons may have acted
imprudently, during the excitement, in not
satisfying the negro sympathizers that he had
a legal right to the slave. But if one person
has the right to compel a man, in the execu
tion of the law, to 'show his authority, we do
not - see why every citizen in-the State has
not the same right; a right that would render
the fugitive slave act null and void.' '
Mr. Parsons declare's his intention forth
with to proceed against the persons who res
cued his slave, in the U. S. District Court.
We are satisfied that the slave was his proper
-Ay, and that his riecihew was no more guilty
of an attempt to kidnap than we were. The
prosecution was a shallow pretext to rob him
of his slave, and it succeeded. Bnt he can
and will have redress—our word for that.
CORRECTION,—CoI. JOIN PIPER, of Gays
. port, complains that we done him treat injus
tice by coupling his name with the slave res
.cue. We done so on what we conceived to
be reliable information ; but of course the re
ports of the affair were so contradictory that
an error of -the kind could scarcely be avoided.
The Colonel says that when he reached the
acetic ofexcitement the negro bad left, and
all. was over, except the discussion between
Potts and Crawford and Parsons ; and that had
he been present, during the melee, he would
have urged the detention of the slave until
such a time as the case was clearly made out.
We would not knowingly place any man in
a wrong position, and we cheerfully make
the correction.' We hope that the editors
throughout the State, who have copied our
article will make - this correction.
