The following extract from the speech of Mr. Crittenden of ^Kentucky, at the great ratification meeting of the Amer i can Dominations, held in New York city, is truthful and eloquent. He vin- dicated the American party from the slanders of its enemies in a manly and convincing exposition of the true posi- tion of the party. He said: He bad no antipathies against the foreigners; the party has none. Let the oppressed and downtrodden of all nations come to us. Let them share the beneficence and justice of our laws. Let tbem share our educational facili* ties. Let them share our language and our customs; but we tell them in all kindness, both for tbeir sake and our own, that tbey must leave us to govern and manage the oountry, or in their hands, unaccu*tomod as they are to its delicate machinery, it will be wrongly directed, and its power will be thrown against ifcelf, and it will be involved in one mass of splendid ruins.

COTTOVCZXD on The proprietors of one of our linseed oil mills have commenced the manufae*' tare of oil from cotton seed, and about foar hundred bag* of the seed arrived here this week from Memphis, to be used for this purpose Tho oil is used for burning. How far the parties will succeed in their enterprise, remains to be demonstrated. We believe the man- ufacture of oil from cotton seed has been carried on in the South to a greater or lesser extent, for several years; at Natchez, we believe one of these mills has been in operation, for some ten years; but so far, the oil hu not come into Kneral use. The difficulty seems to be clarifying, as it will not burn in a «rude state. Should our enterprising citiiiens succeed in preparing the oil for use, it will prove a most important ar- ticle of commerce — Cincinnati Price Current.

From (he Memphis Eagle and Inquirer. PIERCE DEMOCRACY AND BOMAH CATHO- LICISM Have our readers never noticed a strik- ing similarity between Roman Catholic- ism and the chief point of modern Democ- raoy, aa expounded by the supporters of the present Administration? This resemblance, we might say this indenti- ty of principle, oonsists in the claim which each seta np to u:ntalubtlity." This, as is universally conceded, is the corner stone of the Bomish Church. Question this, and its power and influ- ence rapidly decline. Its "infallibility" is the secret of its power over the faith. and therefore over the mind*, of men. Of all Christian countries, those acknowl- edging andjpraeticing a blind submission, to-this peculiar dogma of the^ Roman Catholic Chureh, are the most ignorant and degraded. Ireland, Austria, Spain, Portugal; and Italy, is contrasted with England, Prussia, Germany, and half Proteafent France, illustrate the truth of tbe assertion. Ignorance is always superstitious— a...
