0C7"A singular excitement at Washington, D.-Ci,-has-lj«.'» causedJ»y_the-publication—ot_along list of names purporting to be all the members of one of the ward associations of the Know-Nothing order, and the threatened publication ofsmilar lists from all the- wards of that city. People all over the country are be-. coming ashamed of Know-Nothingism, and dread nothing worse than an- exposure of their connection with it. 0C7*J«<Jge Pollock has at length taken the stump, but his speeches are represented as a mere tirade of abuse ngninst the Democrats, destitute of either point or argument.- He dadgex the Know Nothing question—never opens his mouth on tlie subject of the TARIFF —is silent about the Independent Treasurj*—and seems to have his warmest affections centered in the cause of Jiboliliuninm. TT'Know Nothingism cannot live in the light of American liberty. There is too much honesty and too mucluntelligence—too strong a love of republican equality in this country for-...

. The Tide Turning. ' Democrats are beginning to discover that Know-Nothingism is only a cunning Whig trap, and are rapidly leaving this secret organization and returning to the old.Democratic standard. In Fort Wayne, Indiana, at a late election for city clerk, the Know-Nothing candidate was defeated by a large majority. The Democracy triumphed. In Berkoly county, Virginia, at a special election for Sheriff, the Democratic candidate was elected over a regular Know-Nothing candidate. So it will be, very truly remarks the Reading Gazette, everywhere when the next elections take place. The evidences of Know-Nothing rule in the Philadelphia city government have alarmed the sober, sensible men of all parties, and they will testify that alarm at the ballot-' jox, Where it will be effective. The hard blows of the Democracy are telling upon the Knoyr-Nothing Order in all parts;of the country. They cannot longer lurk tinder the disguise of darkness and within the walls of an oath-seale...

Anonymous Letters. The following remarks on that, most reprehensible practice, anonymous letter writing, wo find in the Philadelphia Ledger., .It 19 strong language, but nevertheless true: "The most pusillanimous species of malevolence which'any mean-souled wretch can exhibit, is the sending of anonymous letters, ivith the view of wounding the feelings, injuring the business, or blasting the reputation of others. The assassin who, with stiletto in hand.waits in concealment the approach of his victim, is a magnanimous and high-souled hero in comparison with the anonymous threatener of mischief. The former has to attempt the deed his malignant spirit prompts him; to perpetrate, and he exposes himself in the act to the danger of detection,JbuLthe skulking craven whose venom is infused through anonymous means, confesses, in the pains he takes at concealment, thie pitiful cowardice .of his nature, as well as the itnpotency of his threats. His act has not tho dignity of.a crime, but a...

H?*A pic nic gathering of Know Nothings, to the number of 4000 or 5000, was held in Georgetown.—Exchange Paper. \ Of course the above is a "fish s(ory, '^and yet it is going the rounds of the papers as a veritable truth. When Grst we saw the article it read thus: "A pic nic gathering, composed of forty or, fifty couple, was held' near Georgetown,yesterday." Next it was changed into a Know Nothing gatheringrand"bya"dding 1 cipher (0) to each number, it was made to read 400 or 500 ; and now, by the addition of mother cypher, it has reached the enormous figure of "4000or 5000!" By the time it has got. through all the Whig papers, it will probably read something like this: "A pic nic gathering of Know Nothings, to the number of 400,000,000,000,0'.'0 or 500.-300.000,000,000 was held in Georgetown."—Clinton Democrat. — CCr'Mr. Wise, of Va., was lately married.

The Boy of the Times, — We like an active boy^-one who haa the im. pulse of the age, the steam engine in him. A lazy, plodding, small-paced chap might have got along in the world fifty years ago; bat he won't do for these times. We live in an age of quick ideas; men think quick, eat, sleep, court, marry, and die quick—and slow coaches are not tolerated. "Go ahead, ifyou bust four boiler," is .the motto of the age: and ho sueseeds tho best in every line of business, who lias the most "do or die" in him. Strive boys,' to catch tho spirit of the times. Be qp and dressed always, not gaping and rubbing your eyes, as if you were half asleep, but wide awake, whatever may turn up, and you may be somebody before you die. Think, plan*». fleet as much as you please, before you act: but think quickly and closely, and when you have fixed your eye upon an object, spring to the mark at once.

Good Nkws from Scjih-ylkill.—The Mining Register says that in # SchuylkiIl county the Democratic party is united on its nominees with a degree of unanimity that must tell with terrible effect upon Know Nothingism at the October election; while hundreds who have acted with the opposition for 3'cars, rally under our banner at this time, as the only party pledged to constitutional freedom, ana judicious measures of governmental policy. - - -X "\ krmoxt.—In Vermont, the vote for Governor stands very nearly as . follows:—Clark, Democrat, 15,300; Royce, fusion, 27,000: scattering, 1400.

Riots at Nkw Oiiuuxs.—The city of New Orleans lias been the scene of terrible riots between natiyes ami ..foreigners, which lasted several days. Guns, pistols, and other weapons were freely used, many persons were shot, and five or six killed. The military had to be called out, to restore order. The Mayor had issued a-proclamation ordering all the bar-rooms to be closed, for the present, at 8 o'clock in the evening, ami directing the enrollment of a special police. The disturbance originated in ii inure mile. An Irishman shot a dog owned by nn American, for biting him, and the American endeavored to get a" watch* man to pursue and orrest him. Failing in this, he stirred up the blood of a partyof natives, and nt it tiiey went upon the Irish. It is deplorable that in this land of freedom, people can be found base enough to excite the prejudices of birth and religion to such a pitch as to produce riot and bloodshed. But this is one of the legitimate fruits of Know-Nothingism.

Questions for Whigs to Answer. Some of the whigK pretend to say that whiggtry is not identified with Know Nothingism —t!>nt the Know Nothings are composed of mcmbi-rs of bu' .h of the old parties, and therefore whiggery cannot be charged with assimilating with, or being the peculiar guardian of that order. Now. if \\ higgcry is not identified with Know Noihingihin, why is it.lhat throughout this whole Stale, not a single resolution has h ' ten ' passed by a whig convention, disap-/jmei/i 'j ' ufl 'the proseriptivc principles of . Know Notliingi.si'n ; "although the Democratic Conven¬ tions of nearly every county hate done so ? Again, why is it that not a single whig; paper in the State lias openly avowed hostility to Know Noihingism, while, nearly every one evinces. , by its editorials and selections, a very decided leaning towards Know Nothing docrines? Again, why is it, that neaily all the ¦whig leaders, including the editors, throughout the State, are members of Ihe or...

.

In times gone by, the Whigs of the "Young Guard" boasted that they fought for principle. Now, their leaders teach them (not by words, but) by acts, that-tbfiir organization is kept up only for the purpose of giving tiffke to a few, who in their souls have no more love for principle than they hnre for the Constitution which they seek to trample under foot. Look at the picture now presented. „ We saw the assembling of a Whig County Convention. and the hardest struggle in it was the contest for the Legislative nomination, j The Know Nothing influence orowded! off Mr. Ellis, although his right to a re-nomination was not doubted ; and Col.
