NATIONAL K. N. COUNCIL
It is said that an American National
Council will assemble this week in Phil
' adelphia. The special purpose of its as
sembling is not distinctly known, but
the results of its labors, says a eotempor
ary, " are artxiously awaited, and the po
.sitions the Councils may adopt, for the
Party, on questions of-great public im
port., such us the slavery question, the
revenue system, the currency, internal
improvements, our foreign relations, &c.,
will not only materially retard, impede
and - arrest, or improve and impel the
movement to still greater achievements,
but seriously injure or advantage all oth
er parties in their future operation, and
vitally affect the futur3 destinies of the
country itself. Though it has triumph
ed in all parts of the country, wheeling
one State after another into the Ameri
can line, it is yet, as a party, in its in
cipient stages, without fixed and well as
certained principles and measures, and
can hardly be said to have National char
acter and enjoy a National
The first and important business will
therefore be, for the members from the
various States to come to a general un
derstanding among themselves, as to the
character, principles and measures to
which the party shall be publi&y pledged
and their next step ought to be, after
having come to an understanding along
themselves, to be understood by the
The Convention will evidently ave a
stormy time of it, as the South- is fully
represented, while among the Northern
delegates is the Hon. Henry Wilson, one
of the United States Senators from Mass
achusetts, who in a recent speech to the
order in Brattleboro, , ,Vermont, declared
that the Know Nothings must abandon
their secret organization, make open nom
inations and take a firm stand against
slavery and its further extension. Mr.
Wilson is the man who started the great
" flare up" in the Whig National Con
vention of 18-14, and if he carries the
same spirit into the K. N. convention
there must be considerable " agitation."
The result will be known in a few days.
A FUSION MovemENT.—The Whig
and Democratic Standing Committees of
Allegheny county-have both resolved not
to call conventions to nominate county
tickets for their respective parties the
present year. The object, of course, is
to make a fusion ticket, and unite in its
support all who are opposed to the Know
Nothings• The mode adopted to accom
plish their object will make their move
ment a formidable one, and it behooves
the Americans to act wisely in making o
SOULE vs. PERRY.—The' Louisiana
fire-eater, Pierre Soule, publishes a let
terin the New Orleans papers stating"
there o is not one word of truth in the re
cent letter of Mr. Perry, the present
acting charge at Madrid in Spain. He
says the baseness of the impudent wri
ter is only equaled by his hypocrisy and
cowardice. Mr Soule says ho is now
preparing for publication a picture of
Mr. Perry'S doings during his (Soule's)
mission to Spain.
DEFINING POSITIONS.—The Hon.
James C. Jones, one of the Tennessee
U. S. Senators, has declared his opposi
tion to the Know Nothings. Senator
Toombs and Hon. A. H. Stephens, the
aeorgia • disunionists,' have taken a sim
A ""SETTLEMENT" UNSETTLED!
The " Final Settlement" of the sla-.
very agitation, so Solemnly declared by
Congress a few years ago, is wofully un
settled just at present. North, South,
East and West, we find, says the North
American, very little else in the columns
of our exchanges than slavery and the
topics connected therewith, and all the
resolutions of Congress and two great
party national conventions, to say noth
ing of the monster meetings in . Philadel
phia, New York, and other large cities,
have apparently been only so much amu
nition wasted. Things never looked so
threatening as at present, not even at
the epoch of 1850. While the whole
North seems aroused to indignation and
resentment at the perpetration of the
outrages in Kanzas territory, the whole
South is in a fury at the Masschusetts
law nullifying the fugitive slave act.—
The Charleston papers open the /War by
reviving the scheme of disunion as the
only panacea against the great bugbear,.--
abolition. The _Richmond Enquirer ad
vocates the expulsion of the Massachu
setts delegation from the next Congress.
The Louisville Journal advocates the
laying of a prohibitory duty upon all
goods-of Massachusetts production im
ported into ary slave State, and these
journals are all apparently in earnest, and
argue fiercely in favor of the positions
they take. Other distractions also enter
into the agitations of the times. Vari
ous influential Southern journals have
commenced a persevering effort to get
the foreign slave trade reopened, on the
ground that it would give to the South
ern% States the same impetus and pros
perity which the Northern States derive
ftom European immigration. Then the
Georgia politicians want slavery recog
nized formally as a national institution.
Of-course, all such things aro very
visionary, but they show how foolish an
act it was in Massachusetts to pass a law
which amounts to a mere bravado, but
serves the South an excuse for vindica
ting the Kanzas iniquity. The peaceful
law-abiding position of the Northern
emigrants in Kansas gives them an ad
vantage in the eyes of the whole country
which must eventually secure for them
full protection in their constitutional
rights, unless such movements as this
Massachusetts nullification act. interfere
with it.. As regards Kanzas itself, the
St. Louis papers are busily engaged in
telling us that peace reigns upon the
frontier, but every mail which brings
th-ese assurances, conveys also praCtical
contradictions thereof. Since the lynch
ing of Phillips, by a Weston, Mo., mob,
several other Northern emigrants have
been warned to leave the territory on
specified days, or remain at their peril.
Phillips himself has gone back to Lea
venworth, armed, to defend himself to
the last extremity. A hotel, kept by a
northern man, as Kanzas City, Mo., has
been mobbed by a band of desperate out
laws, and only saved by the fact that the
place was well armed and defended.—
The Mayor and Marshal of the town
were sent for, but refused to protect the
hotel. 'Meetings in favor of mob rule
arc also being .held in all the Western
counties of Missouri, and a general mass
gathering of the Atchison partY; for the
same end, is to be held at Lexington,
1119., on the first Monday in June.
OPEN ORGANIZATION.—Sineo the
Virginia election the clamor for open or
ganization has been loudly renewed by
many AmeriCan papers—the Harrisburg
herald among the rest. A movement
to the same end has been started by many
of the leading K. N's. of the city of New
York, who have called a meeting for 'the
purpose of not only urging the abandon
ment of the secret organization, but also
to make a public declaration that " the
American party does not desire thb ex
clusion from office ()cony Foreigner who
is, a Protestant I". This is a new plank
for the platform.
VIRGINIA ELECTION.—ACCOrdifig to
the Richmond Enquirer, the majority for
Wise in one hundred and thirty-nine
counties is 10,159
The members of Congress from Mass
achusetts are.not to be allowed to take
their seats! This is the edict of the
South, promulgated through the Rich
mond Enquirer :
• The slaveholding States can no longer, with
safety, delay to act. What course shall they
pursue ? This is a grave question, but it must
be promptly and resolutely met. If the act of
Massachusetts goes into effect it will be the
duty of the South to resist the-entrance of the
membertpf either branch of Congress from
that State into the Capitol until it is expunged
from her code book.
The metropolis of the Republic is located
within the limits of the South. .That metrop•
olis it must control, and expel therefrom the
Goths and Vandals who are undermining our
great political edifice. No member of eittier
House, who comes from a State which sets nt
defiance n bonstitutional provision, or law pal
pably in conformity with that constitutional
provision, should be permitted to take his sent.
Language like this is too ridiculous to
h3ve any other effect than to excite a
smile. Yetit is significant as indicative
of the temper of the South.
A SCREW LOOSE IN TENNESSEE.—
Hon. A. J. Ponelson—Gen. Jackson's
Private Secretary, then Charge to Texas,
&c.—a distinguished private man in
in Tennessee, is out with a letter, in
which he intimates his decided opposi-
tion to re-electing Andrew Johnson, the
present Governor of the State, who is
now stumping' the State, with llon.
M. P. Gentry. his letter is addressed
to the Editor of the Nashville Union,
from the subscription list of which he
wishes his name erased, because not a
word is ever found in its columns warn
ing the co.'nty against the nullification
treason and other dangerous factions.—
lie also denounces President Pierce,
whom he charges with specially seeking
the adherents of these treasonable fac
tions to fill the most elevated and res
ponsible national trusts.
BOUNTY LAND WARRANTS.—On
day last the first issue of bounty land
warrants, under the act of March 3d,
1855, was made from the Pension Office.
There were about eleven hundred in all
issued, of 160 and 120-acre warrants.
A warrant of 160 acres was forwarded
to the President of the United States for
military services rendered by him during
the Mexican war A similar warrant
was forwarded to ex-Presideid Tyler, for
military services during the late war with
England. lion. Wm. L. Marcy, Secre
tary of State, receives an 80 acre. war
rant fur military services In the same war,
lie having already 'received a bounty of
80 acres under the act of 1850.
Bnirisn'Ornctris at the siege of Se
bastopol, one might suppose, would find
enough to occupy their time in preserving the
discipline of their corps, remedying defective
arrangements, inspecting the moments of the
enemy, and endenvorinz to perfect themselves
in the art of war. But the officers themselves
appear to be of a different opinion. A recent
letter fromthe British camp to one of the
London papers, gives an exciting acconut of a
horse race; and it seems that they have these
diversions regularly. The same writer tells
us that "dog hunting" is also a favorite sport
in the camp. These officers are evidently of
the same sort as a party of others sent by the
British commanderS to Heligoland, in the Bal
tic, and who took with them such nn amount
of baggage, , that the people of Heligoland
thought they had come for a long stay. Among
the articles they brought with them weie
pianos for their families.
DEATH OF "DOESTICKII."-II IS announced
that Mr. MORTIMER Tuonrsos, better known
to the public as "Doesticks, was accidentally
killed on Wednesday morning at Ann Arbor,
Michigan, where he ° was spending a few days.
Ho was out shooting nt a mark with some
companions, when an occidental bullet put an
an end to his life. The Tribune says that Mr.

or 24 years of ago, of a singularly modest,
simple and manly nature, and endowed with
taleitts and aspirations which would have
secured for him an honorable place in larva
