pupilage of twenty-ono years, or," at least,
serve an apprenticeship much longer than
they now do, before enjoying this blessing!
When citizeuship is made toi easy and
cheap, it becomes worthless and contempti
ble. When the It on. a us permitted foreign
ers to become citizens, even though they
had to pay a high pi ice for the right of
citizenship, then corruption began to un
dermine the government, and its decay and
ruin soon followed as a necessary conse
quence. You do not degrade the foreigner
by refusing to give him the boon of voting,
for it is a gift ; he has no ripht Ko it. lint
you degrade tho rigid of si'fj'ntC by ma

liut Mr. Caldwell and the lion. Ii. Craigc
both hoot at tho idea of foreigners and
Catholics controlling this government. They
say that there pre but two millions of for
eigners out of a population of twenty-four
millions. According to the census of 1 "".",
the population is only twenty-three, aud not
twenty four million, as Mr. Caldwell states,
while the foreign population, then, was not
',1100,(1(10, as ho says ; but it was J,"-,v!5,(i0t.
There has, since ihut lime, come into the
I'uited States, unmiaifi. an average of over
Jif hundred thousand, which would make
to t lie present timo nnro than two ami a
half millions more, making in all about five
millions nf foreigners. Then deduct the
slave population, which is over three mil-1
lions, aud w ho cannot vote, and you will j
have a foreign influence in the country of:
S. ...... ill. .1 . A. .. !...'..
UjOo.jUoo, ajailihi au Jimvt iec jtiumi tun
of 17 or 1 y,UO0,0l,0, vii: they would con
stitute about ouc-fourtb or one-fifth of our
vote. Then, take into consideration, (ho
further fact, that they (the foreigner) ore
universally violent opjioncnti of ilovely and
rank abolitionists; that, also, they nearly
all settle in the North aud North-W. est, aud
that they all vote together, ci ww tr t'uat,
fuithermorc, they are nearly nil ,l(onian
Catholics, and are under the comp;el tottr
trol of, the Jesuitical LUhopr janfi pries'?.
Take into further consideration, that the
parties are nearly equally divided iu all the
States, and that a slight.of' vote either
way ran control the election ; and it can be
easily seen, at a glance, how foreign influ
ence can and dixs control the country by its
voti, en mussc. And these very votes can
be txtiifiht up by the demagogue who w ill bid
the highest and promise to do most for the
Catholics, and give the fairest promises of
office, and thus directly control and influ
ence the entire representation of all offices
in the State or Federal Governments : from
the "clerks and sheriffs of a county to the
legislators and governors of a State, and
from the representatives iu the Congress
of the United States to the President.
Then take into consideration the further
fact that, as tiincteeu-tweuticths of this for
eign vote yes, I might-eny, ninety-uiue-hundredths
sf this foreign Catholic vote,
who believe in the supreme civil, aj well as
cphitual, authority of the Pope of Home,
and who banish the bible not only from j
their common schools, but from the use of
their members at all ; I say just consider!
that these abolition, Catholic foreigners near- J
ly all sittU at the Xuitt and Sortli-11 est
and swell the population there 5,J()0,(lbO ; '
that every U0,(UH) of a federal population ;
Bends one representative to Congress. Then, !
divide 5,OU(),(ltiO by J0,UO0, and you will:
find that they increase the Abolition Vote of 'j
the yorti FIFTY-FIVE MEMHEHS. '
And that is the foreign influence, adverse ,
to the South and her institutions aud ad-1
verse to I'ratcstutism, that rults tc conn,
try, and as annually alarmingly increasing
to ii and 7U0,0iMI, and will soon be, if it
progresses as heretofore, 1,(100,000 a year.
And theu consider that Mr. Craigc voted j
for the Nebraska bill, for I believe that is I
the fact, which gives to each one of these i
forcigiicis 100 acres of the public laud, sud j
allows theut to settle dowu upon it aud vote, I
as soon as they laud here and remain nne
year upou it a boon that has bem denied
to our brave soldiers of the war tf
ami to our revolutiouary soldiers, uatil last
Congress, and theu tell uielf you can still ,
vote for him. Or tell me if you do i(irt still
think that, by that vote, (riving to foragers
what lias tieeii denied to our citizeu soldiers,
until so lately, he has " proved rerramt to '
the interests of his constituents," to the
South and to natiee American citizens. .
Hut there appears something still more
strange iu Mr. Caldwell's card, if it is
not ridiculous, and that is, that be says
that he was understood to be an expected
candidate, is early as last March; that he
had received urgent solicitations from promi
nent Whigs in various parts of the district,
as early as that time. Well, I suppose
that probably twenty or fifty others may
have received urgent solicitations, also, and
men altogether as proii.iueut as himself, but
who did not, therefore, expect that the en
tire Government should rest upon their
shoulders; unless they were nominated by
a convcutiou ill the Usual way. They did
Mot care to foist themselves prominently for-
irard, in such hot hate until they were
Juiry invited into the field. I don't know
of any very great service he bad ever
rendered the couutry or the Whig par
ty, that be should be considered, par ex
eeUnce, the Ajax Tclamon of the par
ty the great luminary before whom all
other and lesser stars should grow dun.
The fact of his having been elected as a
Whig, to the State legislature, from a Iein
ocrntio county, one time, under juao'i'ir
ein tinistnne, by W'higs swapping off with
Democratic voters, when there were two sets
of candidates iu tho field, was no strong ev
idence of such amazing popularity, as would j
make Mr. Cald well. the most available can
didate for a conprcssioinU compaigu, with
out respect to capacity, or other qualifica
tion.. It struck myself, and other with
whom I conversed, as rather displaying au
((( anxiety to '-sere foe people" mid ap
peared very much like an attempt lo fore
stal public ppiuion, aud prevent the bring
ing out of a candidate by a convention, or
by county meeting?, who would be most ac
ceptable to the district generally. And I
.Link all such r'ri4itnteer" caudidatos should
be invited by the public to "tarry awhile I
at Jericho until their beards be grown,"
mid not exhibit so much eagerness to be-!
come file leaders, even if they should be so-1
liciled by leading members of their party, j
1 i .1 the gentleman not submit, his chums
lo the ronientiol of the American order in
Charlotte! Aud did he not agree to abide
the -esuts cf that convention of the Ameii-i
can order, or of tho Know Nothings, as he'
calls them ! Was be a member of that or-',
der, when the nomination was made, and, if
so, bow could be ojipose the regular nomi-
nee 1 If be was a member then, how c-ould (
he deny that he belonged to the order next j
day, in his speech! My impression is, that

never had been. 1 suppose, if bo llnd pot,
the nomination, he would have been, like
the backwoodsman at the lottery ticket of

thing as could be;" but, like biin, too, when
it' failed to draw him a prize ; be thought
it, " a perfect cheat," and thought it " ought
to be broken all to d d smash." It looks
to me more like selfish interest and selfish
policy that governs such 'men than true
The frowning simplicity and naircte with
which the truth leaks out, for the reason
why Mr. Caldwell joined the order of Know
Nothings" was, the solicitude (he has been
wonderfully solicited) of a friend, and the
assurance of a " magnanimous Mexican,''
that the party had a majority in this con-
cressional district. It seemed lo be more
a desire for being ou the popular hide than
any principles involved, that caused him to
join Unit party and afterwards to leave it.
I rather susDect that his treaty of neaee
in the service of the " magnanimous Mexi
can" was broken, not as much from a dis
like of the principles involved, as front a
dislike of the results of the action of tho
convention that "met in the planing shop,"
and was broken because he was not appoint
ed tho officer to command, but like all oth
er recruits, was to be a subaltern or "take
osition I 'm the ranks." In short, because he
w as not of as much consequence, in the es
timation of the nominating convention, as
ho was in bis own estimation. Because he
had, " contrary to the use...' course of the
faculty," taken stimulant.. o opium, whilst
the feverish desire fjr office prevailed, in
stead of cooling salts, which was more prop
erly administered afterwards by the con
vention, and finally sweated off by the su
dorific mixture, presented by a certain Dr.
Ii. Craigc, iu Charlotte, and which makes
him so grateful to the doctor for restoring
him (o his right mind. Therefore it is, that
be raises his oracular voice to '.varn the
Whigs generally, from his superior wisdom,
against the Know Nothing organization a
body, too, that he had voluntarily joined,
aud in part defended in his speech iu Char
lotte, aud whoso principles mid regular
nominations he hud sworn to support aud
defend-, and never lo oppose.

resting, but the main facts have been stated
with general correctness. ' .
Tbe allies have made an unsuccessful at
tempt to storm Sebastopol. The most sin
ister rumors prevail iu regard to the trans-
action. By some accounts the Eiixlish loss
is set down at 4,000 men, but tha report
is believed to be much exaggerated.
The following are the only official notifi
cations of the event :
Lord Panmure regrets to have to an
nounce that he has received information that
tho English troops attacked the Redau, and
the French the Malakoff towers, at day light
on the morning of the 1 "th, wubout suc
cess, which has hitherto attended our ef
forts. Both the French and ourselves have
suffered considerably. Tho names of the
officers who have fallen will be forwarded
immediately, but it will be impossible to re
ceive complete returns of all the casualties
bcfoie the yth iust (June) ut the earliest.
'J' lie Moni'cur announces that the govern
ment has received two despatches from Gen
eral Pelissier. 'The first, dated the 17th,
informs of operations coucocted between tbo
Gcucral and his allies, aud that the Turks
and Chasseurs made a recounoisances to- '
wards Aitodor, General Bo.-quet occupying
the TelKiuaya. The next day, at daybreak,,
the French aud English were to attack
the Malakoff. The second despatch, dated
1-tli. announces the attack had failed, and
that although the troops bad showed tho
greatest ardor, and gained a fooling iu the
Malakoff lower, General IVliisier was oblig
ed to order their retirement into the paral
lel. This was effected wiUi order, and with
out molestation by the enemy.
Private accounts, published in the Lou
dou Standard, say the loss of British offi
cers, iu killed anil wounded, amounts to uo
less than seveuty. Among the killed and
wounded arc General Sir J. Campbell, Col. "
Yea and Col. Shadlbrth. From the obstiuacy
aud courage with which the combat was
maintained by the British at the Redan,
and the necessity of eventually retiring from
the attack, the slaughter ou all sides has
been immense : and if tho information be
correct, the loss killed and wounded of tho
British alone amounts to very little short of
four thousand. 1 lie greatest port;ou of the
oss was expel leneed iu a ravine where a
powerful and unexpected battery opened on
the troops. There is reason to fear that the
less has been very great, but Lord Palmer- ,
rton said ou Friday night uo additional in
formation bad arrived. 'The allies lost ter
ribly by the Russians springing a mine, and
dining the confusion they (the Russians) re
captured the Mamelon tower. .
Previous advices were on the 17th, stat
ing that there- had bce'i smart firing n
both sides, but without any result of im
portance. Ail the camps are healthy excepting that
at. liahkhiva, w here cholera prevails. The
Sat ilitiiaiis are suffering, and General Mar
moia.the younger, is dead.
