NATIONAL AIIIERICAN COUNCIL.
We are at length able to lay before cur rea
ders the Platform of Principles adopted by
the National Council of Americans,, that has
been in session for a week past, in Philadel
phia. It is as follows
I.—The achnowledgement of that Almighty
Being, who rules over the Universe—who pre
sides over the Councils of Nations—who con
ducts the affairs of men, and who, in every
step by which we have advanced to the char
acter of an independent nation. has distin
t.inguished us by some token of Providintial
IL—The cultivation and developement of a
sentiment of profoundly intense American.
feeling ; of passionate attachment to our
country, its history and its institutions: l of
admiration fur the purer days of our National
existence ; of veneration for the heroism that
precipitated our Revolution ; and of emulation
of the virtues, wisdom and patriotism that
framed-our CoMstitution, and first successful
ly applied its provisions.
111.—The maintenance of the union of these
United Mates as the paramoulit political good:
or, to use the language of Washington, 'the
Primary object of patriotic desire.' And
Ist. Opposition to all attempts to weaken
or subvert it.
2d. Uncompromising antagonists to every
principle of poliey that endangers it.
3d. The ath:ocacy of an equitable adjust
ment of all political differences which threat
en its integrity or perpetuity.
4th The suppression of all tendencies to
polijicnl division, founded on ` g eo g raphical
discriminations, or on the belief that there is
a real .dilference of interests and views be
tween the various sections of the Union.
sth. The full recognition of the rights of
the several States as ex pressed and reserved
in the Constitution; and a careful avoidance,
by the General Government, of all interfer
eace with their rights by legislative or exeeu•
IV. Obedience to the C7rinstitution nr these
United ;Rates, as the supreme law of the lan•1.
sacredly obligatory upon all its parts and
members: and steadiast resistance to the
spirit of iunovation•upon its principles how
ever suspicious, the pretexts. Avowing that
in all doubtful or disputed points it may ot.ly
be legally ascertained and expounded by the
Judicial power of the United States.
And us a enrol ary to the above:-
1. A habit of reverential obedience to the
laws, whether National, State, or Municipal,
until they are either repealed or declared un
constitutional by the proper authority.
2. A tender and sacred regard for those
aF,ts of statemanship, which arc to be contra
distinguished from acts of ordinary legis
lation, by the fact of their being of the nature
of con:pacts and agreements; and so to be
considered a fixed and settled national pol
V.—A radical revision and modification of
the laws regulating immigration, and the set
tlement of immigrants. Offering to the hon
est, immigrant, who from love of, ,liberty or
hatred of oppression, seeks an asylum in the
United States, a friendly reception and pro
tection. lint unqualifiedly condemning the
transmission to our• shores, of felons and pau
VI. The essential modification of the Natu
ralization Laws. The repeal by the Legisla
tures of the respective States, of all State
inws allowing foreigners not naturalized to
vote. The repeal without retroactive opera
tion, of all acts of Congress making grants of
hind to unnaturalized foreigners, and allowing
theta to vt.te in the Territories.
Tll.—Hostility to the corrupt means by
which the leadel s of party have hittayto for
ced upon us our rulers and our political
creods. Implacable enmity against the pres ,
ant demoralizing system of rewards for politi
cal subserviency, and of punishments far poli
tical independence• Disgust for the wild hunt
after offiee which characterizes the age.
These on the one baud. On the other—
Imitation of the pr.ictice of the purer days
of the Republic ; and, admiration of Alid max
im that 'office should seek the, man and nut
man the office,' and of the rule that, the just
mode of ascertaining fitness is the capability,
the. fidthfuluess, and the honesty auto in
cumbent or candidate.
Vlll—Resistance to the aggresivo policy
and corrupting tendencies of the Unman Cath
olic Church in our country by the advance
ment to all political stations—executive, legis
halve, judicial or diplomtitic—of those only.
who do not hold civil allegiance, directly or
indirectly, to any foreign power whether civil
or ecclesiastical, and wlm are Antetierms by
birth, education and training:—thus fulfilling
the maxim, " AMERICANS ONLY SHALL GOVERN
The 'protection of all citizens in the legal
and proper exercise of their civil and reli
gions rights and privileges; the maintenance
of the right of every man to the full, unre
strained, and petteeful enjoyment of his own
religious opinions awl worship, and a jealous
resistance of all attempts by any - sect, denom
ination, or church to, obtain an ascendency
over any other in the State, by means of any
special privileges or exemption, by any politi
cal combination of its miebers, or by a di
vision of their civil allegiancewith any for

Constitution, and consistent with the public
XI —The education of the youth of our
country in schools provided by the State/
which schools shall he common to all without
distinction of creed or -party, and free from
any influence or direction of a denominational
or partizan charattter.
And, in nsmuch as Christianity by the Con.
stitutions of near.y all the States; by the de•
cisions of the most eminent judicial authori
ties ; and by the cons . tnt of the people of Ante
rica, is considered an element of our political
system,- and es the Holy Bible is nt oboe-t-1,.;
stparce of Christianity. and the depository am
fciuntain of all civil an I religious freedom, we
oppose every attempt to exclude it from the
Schools thus established in the States.
.Xll.—The American party having arisen up
on the ruins and in spite of the opposition of
the Whig aind Democratic parties, cannot be
held in any manner responsible fur the obnox
ions acts twpledges of either . . And the 83'S
tematic agitation of the slavery question by
those parties having elevated sectional hostil
ity into a positive element of poli , ical power,
and broullit our institutions into peril, it has
therefore become the imperative duty of the
American party to interpose, for the purpose
of giving peace to the country and perpetuity
to the Union. And as experience has shown it
impossible to reconcile opinions so extreme - as
those which seperate the disputants, and as
there can he no dishonor in submitting to the
laws the National Council has deemed it The
best guarantee of common justice and of future
peace, to abide by and maintain the existing
laws upon the subject of slavery, as 11. final
and conclusive settlement of that subject, in
spirit and in substance.
And regarding it the highest duty to nvow•
their opinions upon a subject so important, in
distinct and unequivocal terms, it is hereby
dec flied us the sense of this National Council,
that Congress possess.ls no. power, under the
Constitution to legislate upon the subject of
Slavery in the States where it does or may
"'•-•- prom admission
exist, or to exclutio ahy
into the Union, because its Constitution does
or does not r,cognihe the institution of Sla
very as a part of its social. system; - end ex
pressly pretermitting any expression of opin
ion upon the power of Congress to establish
or prohildt Slavery in any Territory, it is the
sense of the Notional Council that Congress
ought not to legislate upon the subject of Sla
very within the Territory of the United States
and that any interference -by Congress with
Slavery as it exists in the District of CJIU9I
- would Le a violation of the spirit and in
tention of till compact by which the State of
Maryland ceded the District to the United
States, stud a breach orthe National faith.
JJXIII.--Thekplicy the Government of the
United States, its relations with foreign go
vernment, is to exact justice frOm the strong
est and do justice to the weakest; restraining,
by all the power of the government, all its
citizens from interference with the internal
concerns of nations with whom we are at
\l V.—This National Council declares that
all the principles of the Order, shall he hence
forth everywhere openly avowed ; and that
each member shall be at liberty to make
known the existence of the order, and the
fact that he himself is a member ; and it
recommends that there ho no concealment of

The following manifesto IS published ns
having been adopted by those who withdrew
from the Connell, in consequence of the adop

A meeting of citizens from various States of
the Union, representing the American party,
was called by general consent, whereupon Hon.
J. W. Foster, of Massachusetts, presented the
following paper, which, after being read, was
signed by citizens of the several States, as
TO THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES
The undersigned, citizens of the various
States assembled at Philadelphia on this four
teenth day of Juno, 1855, feel constrained,
under the existing state of affairs, to affirm
the following principle's:
First. The unconditional restoration of that
time-honored compromise known as the Mis
souri prohibition, which was destroyed in
utter disregard of the popular will: a wrong
no lapse of time can palliate and no plea for
its continuance-can justify; and that we will
use all constitutional means to maintain the
positive guarantee of this compact until the
object for which it was enacted has been con
summated by the admission of litaisas and
Nchraska os free States.

the true interests of the. nation and shall

and free schools, thereby promoting the great
work of Americanizing America.
Fourth. That we invoke the arm of legisla

convicts to our shores; and that as our National
Constitution requires the Chief Executive of
our country to be of native birth, we deem it
equally necessary and impbrtant that our di
plomatic representatives abroad should also
possess no foreign prejudices to bias their
judgement, or to influence their official action.

The undersigned, Citizens of the United

tigainst the introduction of any question con

principles of the American party—being con

That if the question of Slavery is to be
passed 'upon, and made a pat t of our national
creed, then, in that event, we cannot consis
