Under the roman Republic this National sentiment this jealousy of nationality bespoke itself in the various Laws guarding roman privileges from the intrusive grasp of foreigners and aliens. No alien no stranger to the soil could hold one Rood of that roman Mother Earth. No stranger enjoyed even the most partial privilege except tii rough the solemn adoption of the August Senate. Rome was invincible in arms Public virtue Wisdom and policy and produced individual character which christianity has scarce surpassed until she spread herself out Over Europe Asia Africa and the a Island of the sea a corrupting diluting and finally destroying her nationality and the boasted title of a citizen of Rhine became a sneer Ami a reproach. In Greece nativity to the soul was in it j self a Patent of nobility. To the mothers a and daughters of Greece alone belonged j the Golden Grasshopper the significant skin subordination on the ground that they refuse to assist the government and have expressed their determination to Side with the clergy. The government however was firm in its determination to carry the decree into effect and it was believed would be supported by the great body of the people. The fugitive partisans of Maro in the states of Mexico and Mic Haocuu had offered to place themselves at the disposal of the government if clemency would be a tended to them. The rebellion had been entirely Bias. Tired in to Mac states. The papers say nothing of the conditions of their submission.

On saturday last our citizens were shocked by the intelligence that a mob had col Lect i in Erie on the previous night in destroyed the Constitution printing off,., and committed other disgraceful outrage. It Sevetus from what we can learn that a son of John ii. Walker e>q., met a broker named Cochran who had committed an aggravated assault and Battery on his father or. A about a year ago tor which he was fined thirty dollars in or near the Constitution office last Friday when they got into a fight. It is said Cochran got the worst of it. In the evening the old court House hell was rung a Large crowd soon gathered and Cochran addressed the mob in an excited manner when they proceeded to the Constitution printing office broke Down the doors carried out the presses types paper in Short All the contents of the buildings including a Law Library belonging. To or. Johnson the editor and piled them in front of the building and applied a a Torch to them a All or. Jav valuable papers private and professional were destroyed. Not satisfied with this the mob literally Cut Down the building itself a two storied Frame belonging to or. Johnson leaving it a Complete mass of ruins. A after this a glorious the mob proceeded to the editor s House and notwithstanding his wife had Only been confined a few Days before stones were dashed in at the windows and the inmates terribly frightened by t he yells of the crowd outside. Tho houses of or. Tracy a prominent Railroad Man Aud of John h. Walker Esq., were next attacked the shutters broken in and the Glass shattered by balls fired into the rooms Tho inmates escaped with their lives by a Miracle. Our received assurances from a source entitled to Confidence that or.

Do cuon the latter having already signified his a a e take this step upon our own responsibility Aud without a suggestion from any Quarter our information being such As to leave us no longer in doubt As to the course which or.

W q shall give hereafter the reasons which have influenced us to this step. For the present we would say we do not support or. Fillmore merely As the nominee of an american convention nor yet As an old whig of the Clay Aud Webster school but upon the Broad and �11 sufficient ground of his tried and True ability his unflinching Holoty of purpose Anil his Devotion to the Constitution and the Union As shown Aud illustrated by his past Model Republican.

The news from Mexico in foils us of the close of Tho late revolution in that country. President Comonfort has been triumphant at Puebla where the rebel army had surrendered at discretion and where the rebel generals chiefs and officers have been reduced to the ranks As private whether this decree will be practically car. Ried out May be doubted but from the Public it molls showered us the president on his ret re to the capital on the a a inst it is evident that the blow struck at the privileges of the military has been received with Universal favor. We tray expect a Large number of those rebel officers soon to visit our City As it is said some fifty of them have been exiled. Bur the most important decree is that of tic 31st of March dated at pc Blu in which the clergy Are Acu cd of having taken part in the revolution and the Ecclesias tical property of that diocese amounting to thirty or forty millions of dollars is seized to the expenses and damages of the War and to pension the widows orphans and wounded. This is the first blow struck directly at the Church property and As such is one of the most important acts Ever recorded in the history of Mexico. The different states of that Republic seems to be quiet at present. How Long this repose May continue is Uncertain. A it Wisconsin Quot a Tho Telegraph report that we published some three or four wee kit ago to the effect that the american state Council of a Wisconsin had repudiated the nomination of Fillmore and Donelon is contradicted the report now being that Wisconsin has ratified Tho nominations of the american party and that she will give them a Hearty support to november. So incite it he. During All these outrages the mayor the sheriff and the police were not to be found not an Effort was made by them to stay the wild fire of the mob. These shocking acts will create a thrill of Indig notion Over the whole country. Whatever sympathy May have existed for the alleged wrongs of the Eric aus such Wanton outrages will scatter it to the Democrat. Mexico. A the steamship Texas arrived at new Orleans has brought Vera Cruz dates to the �2d ult. Tho whole country was in the unusual state of entire quietude. The Bishop of in Zuehla had refused to comply with the decree Sequest rating the Henreh property. The reason which he. Ullage in justification of this course is t at the canons of the Church Are opposed to the elocution of any such Neasure at a clearly intimates that excommunication and the thunders of the Vatican May a the consequence if Tho polio is pursued. See or Asack la Tho chief officer entrusted with Tho duty of enforcing the decree not Only protests against the act but has thrown up his commission. I several tent aria have been arrested for in from the Amer. Banner and defender. A americans arc cowards and sons of some weeks ago we called for the data in connection with this Cipres Don used by the Boston Pilot towards the american people. Our Boston a Sui Pleka furnished us the evidence shortly after but we now notice that by. Farwell of the Boston Patriot gives the extract verbatim. Here it is. If the party of burglars so rampant in the City of Penn and in the City of tip Van Winkle possessed As much brains collectively As a Choctaw Senate when by their Council fire they could hear that their very existence As a nation depends on the Irish population of this country. A a a it ill becomes any Amerau to taunt irishmen on the score of bravery. Native courage is commodity that is yet to be proved to exist. The fire 0f America is not yet seventy years old and thrice native sons of America deserted it. Therefore we Advie these cowards and sons of howards to boast moderately. ,�?T1s shop keepers thy Are excellent a m Tofant a enterprising and persevering As a tuners they have no equals in the world out As soldiers evry native ought to belong to the peace society a camphor and beneficial effects of Oak ichor Asau antidote to strychnine Are illustrated in a Case reported by or. Tewkesbury of Portland Maine it appears that a boy was seized with Cou Vul Sious Aud it was ascertained that he had just eaten a biscuit picked up at the door of an eating House that was made for the purpose of killing rats and contained about one and a half grains of strychnine. The boys spasms were so severe that imme Possession of ulivas with a Force of 2,000 men and on the 11th Gen. Walker attacked them. Alter a fight of seventeen hours he was obliged to abandon the City for want of ammunition. The loss of the Costa Ili cans is said 10 be six Hundred killed and a Large number wounded. Walkers loss is set Down at Between fifty and sixty killed and about 80 wounded and missing. Among the killed is col. March ado the commander of the native forces. The al in Carago ense walkers Organ claims this affair As a glorious Victory. It was said that the Costa Picans had taken Possession of Virgin Bay and fired indiscriminately on every person they saw there killing eight or ten americans in the employ of Tho transit company. On the 10th inst. Lieut. Grecu with fifteen men had a encounter with about 200 Costa Picans killing 27 and dispersing the res whilst the american loss was Only Oue killed Ami two wounded. It was reported that Walker intended to atack the Custus Picans at Virgin Bay about the 25th, having 1,0u0 americans and 1,300 natives under his command. With the exception of a few prominent men in the former legitimate party the nicaraguans acted with Walker. The states of Honduras 8nn Salvador and Guatemala Aie said to be a favor of peace and will not invade Nicaragua. They received the commissions from Nicaragua in Friendly spirit and had discontinued the enlistment of troops Aud disbanded some of their new levies.
