It is ridiculous to attempt, to attribute the present excitement in the public mind against the increase of foreign influence upon the dunes of this country, to any spirit of pro- acription, or sudden outburst of fanaticism. Long and calmly have the American people watched the gathering storm, and" pondered oyer the means of staying the threatened' erii. Gradually, like the slow but fatal folds of the serpent around its intended vic- tim have they felt the alien encroach upon their inherent righfe, and while keenly alive to the inevitable results of the impending evil, that l w procrastinated the applica- tion of a remody.

The attempt to raise * black flag .at San Marcos by the "Stars and Stripes" wa* imitated in S::n Antonio, j where an American banner was torn into ' ribbons abd disgracefully trailed in the mire, while the Mexican and German ensigns were reared aloft to rally the herds of foreign vo- ters who decided the electicn in that county. At the karbacue on the Saturday proceeding the erection in Galveston, five different for- eign flags were thrown to the breeze, as rep- resenting the principles of those who were gathered together. Never within our recol- lection, has such disgraceful acts marked the political history of the country, and we feel the humiliation painfully.
