([For the Empire State.] Mr. Editor of the Empire State: As I learn . that I cannot have this letter to my friend pub ; lished here, please give it a place in your pa per : DANIEL. August 15, 1856. Mr. Editor of the I.aGrangc Reporter — Sir : Please give the folic wing lines a place in your paper, dedicated to my friend. I know not liis name, or I would give it ; but he has concealed it from me, and yet syles himself my friend ! I acknowledge the receipt of his let ter and scrip from a newspaper, and desire to answer him according to his folly. In the first place, had he given me his name, I should no doubt have written privately to him ; but he has secreted that as he has the oaths he lias taken fas I suppose,) among the Know Nothings 5 and as I am opposed to such secrecy, I cannot let the thing remain un known to the public, for I fear he will not de part from his folly, should I remain silent. I wish my friend to know what I think of the scrip, or speech, or letter, he sent me, and if he adopts the sentiments therein contained, I shall place him and the writer upon the same platform, and that a very rotten one. But I will not place them like a man placed a party not long since, for they must have been the smartest people I ever saw, to stand without any platform ; and if it was so, they must have been upheld by almighty power ; but I did not believe what he said, and let it pass. But my friend, with his friend, stands on another platform, and I advise my friend to keep off every ether person, or they will surely fall, and great will be the fall 1 And for fear my friend has adopted the sentiments of his friend, I de sire to show him some of the wickedness of his views, and endeavor to draw him out of the whirlpool which is beneath him. And to do vrhat J have proposed to do, it will be neces sary tp state something the writer has said : “We lived to see the day when, m the opinion of the great Democratic Party,- we must take into finternal hug all the low flung, outlawed pattpers arid criminals thrown upon our shores from European vessels, and place them in office ift opposition to native born citi zens, or we must be anatiiem’atised, and. our names cast out as proscfiptiOhistS, yea,traitors to the party and our country.” Now I ask my friend do w 6 riot stand Where we stood ten years back and farther ? Are we not contending for the saftie thing, and nothing else, the Constitution ? The same that Mr. Wheeler contended for, as he says he did when he canvassed the State twice in Tennessee as Electoral candidate for President and Vice President ? And I am sorry that Tennessee was so imposed upon by So unsound a man, as to fly off from the very tliirig h'6’ once advocated, and turns to a party that de sires now to change the Constitution, and has been in the habit of swearing those that joined j their party, thereby forestalling every one that joined them, to vote for their nominee. And if it be not so, let the party deny it, and show to the contrary. I presume they will not attempt to do so, but will say that all those secret things are removed, and a badge of honor in stituted, and public discussion given or invited, and even then they interrupt the speaker, and blind his ideas for fear their dark places should be touched, and truth brought to light. But Wheeler Lad joined the party, and says ho be longs to no secret society, and never expects to. Have they renounced their secrecy ? Have they acknowledged their wrongs ? If not, Mr. Wheeler and my friend, I suppose, hold the same views, and they have all let go to get a better hold, for had they succeeded as they did at first, they would have carried their schemes to consummation. But, my friend, their designs were discovered, and Mr. Wheel er among them, the calumniator of those he once upheld, and that without cause ! He has tried to bring them into disrepute ; and you, iny friend, by his ridiculous letter, expected to draw me into the same snarl ; but remember, I want no office, and therefore cannot be drawn away by that bait, nor enticed to alter the Constitution by your desire ; and if you and Mr. Wheeler have gone into that party, secret society I mean, you certainly have em braced their views. And if you have thought it wrong to be in a secret society, you must have joined a bad society ; and I am conscien tious in the belief that no Government can be carried on by means of secret societies. There fore it must have begun bad, and you ought to be afraid of it yet ; and I should not be astonished to see you both coming Over to the Democratic Party for shelter yet. But I re quest you, my friend, to read Mr. Wheeler’s letter again --read it as a man seeking after truth, with an honest heart, and you “will ac knowledge, in my opinion* that it is the most ridiculous, and filled up with more falsehoods and hard denunciations, than any letter you have seen m the whole canvass, when it has been gotten through with; except some of the speeches should be printed that have bfeen de livered by the American Party* and sent as letters to friends as you have sent to me. I ask tny friend where the Democratic £atty have departed from the Constitution, or have tried to add to it ? Where has there been any outlawed paupers or criminals placed In office by the Democratic Party ? Where has there been any motion, or any move made to join with any people contrary to the Constitu tion, much less the mother of harlots ? But who has shown the greatest disposition for per secution, the Democrats or Mr Wheeler, I leave for my friend to judge. Why docs Mr. Wheeler now find out the croakiug of frogs about proscription ? Why did not my friend and Mr. Wheeler find out the croaking of frogs in the Constitution ? Nothing of croaking un* til they want the Constitution altered ; and as soon as men began to discover and expose the evils of the Know Nothing Party, then Mr. Wheeler and my friend could hear a croak ing among the frogs, and they could not tell how any man professing the religion of Jesus Christ could, continue in the Democratic ranks. He seems to think, and really says as much, that no man can bo saved and remain with them ; and I suppose my friend thinks so too, and had compassion on me* and wished me to come out from them ; but some may dispute liis eutertaining such views. Here are his words i “How can any man professing the religion of the Lord Jesus Christ, continue in the ranks of the Democratic Party ? Does he prefer the loss bf his spul in the Devil’s hell, to the loss of a political party name here on earth ?” I canhot notice every thing he has said, but one thing riiore, And t will close, with some ad vice to my friend. Here follows his words : “For we should never lose sight of the fact, that the Democracy is now in hostile array against the God of Heaven, against His Church, against his cause, and in league with the enemy of God and man, and upon which the cause of God rests.” Now I ask my friend has he not placed us out of the reach of mercy, if we continue in the Democratic ranks. My friend, Mr. Wheel er says he has taken high ground. Are you with him ? I suppose you are by your send ing me his letter. I advise you to come down. Don’t you discover his dizziness ? If you don’t, your friends do, and they pity your condition Do step down, and get among your fHends, and they will help to open your eyes tilt you can see clearly. As for Mr. Wheeler, I have lost sight of liis recovery. I still hope for you. if vou stop and go no farther. Farewell. DANIEL. Kansas Meeting in Butts. According to a previous call, the citizens of Jackson and vicinity, on Monday evening, the 12th inst, assembled in the court-house, when the meeting was organized by calling on J. R. McCord to act as Chairman, and F. M. Car ter, as Secretary. Messrs. E. M. McGee and B. Jones, from Kansas, presented the resolutions aud state ment of the proceedings of a meeting held by the emigrants from Georgia to Kansas, near Kansas City, Mo., on the Ist of July last, by which these gentlemen were sent a3 agents of a committee, there organized, to Georgia, to seek relief in behalf of Kansas, which was read by the Secretary, as well as a letter of in troduction and recommendation from General D. R. Atchison, ex-Senator of the U. States. These gentlemen then addressed the meeting upon the situation, condition and resources of Kansas, calling warmly upon the patriotism of Georgia for aid to that Territory On motion, a committee of ten were appoint ed for the purpose of appointing a sub-commit tee of five in each Militia District in this coun ty, to raise a contribution to aid our friends in Kansas, as well as to aid others to get there, which contribution when raised by each sub committee, is to be paid to the Chairman of the Chief Committee, who is to pay the amount raised to Mr. McGee, Agent of the Georgia Colony in Kansas, and take his receipt, and forward the receipt to the Committee of the Georgia Colony in Kansas, with a certificate of Otrr Clerk of the Court of the amount rais ed.. These gentlemen bring tlie highest afld most conclusive proof of their high standing of ho nor, honesty and integrity, and give the great est assurance that every dollar contributed will be properiy applied. The manner in which the whole business is conducted, leaves no room for fraud whatever. . Mr. McGee has re sided on the borders of Kansas for near thir ty years, and is well acquainted with Kansas and Kansas affairs. Mr. Jones is a young man, the son of the well known J. A. Jones, of Georgia, who recently emigrated to’ Kansas, and was sent back by the . Georgia Colony Committee there to pray relief from Georgia. The addresses of these gentlemen were ear nest and candid, and entirely satisfactory, and left a strong impression on every mind in be half of Kansas. They gave us great hope for the Southern interests their *. We cordially recommend them to the favorable con sideration of every one, and hope they will meet the warm and grateful deception ev ery where that they deserve, and hope that our people will respond liberally to their call for aid. It was resolved that the proceedings of this meeting be published in the Empire State and American Uuion. The meeting then adjourned. J- R. McCORt), Chairman. T. M. Carter, Secretary. George M. Troup. The following beautiful and just tribute to the character and memory of Georgia’s ever honored statesman and patriot, the late Geo- M. Troup, is extracted from an oration deliv ered before the Savannah Volunteer Guards, on the 4th of July last, by Wm. S. Daniel, of this city. Eor the extract, we are indebted to a friend who has the address in his possession. Allu ding to Troup, the speaker said : Savannah Nan. He it was, who, standing at the head of a State containing only 400,000 inhabitants, “ defied the General Government when en croaching upon the rights of that State who, when he found that Government backed by every othef State iti the Union, persistent in its determination to continue & course of injus tice and aggression, proclaimed to the people of Georgia that “the argument was exhausted and they iliust stand by their arms.” The leader of a minority, he stood forth the cham pion of State Sovereignty, dauntless, as with superior force on his side; demanding that jus tice should be done to the people of his State. Wlmt a sublime spectacle ! One man, by the unquailing assertion of the mighty truth. • and the exercise of moral power alone, gain ing a victory over material force 1 How far greater is such a man than the vulgar hero of the populace 1 The latter-may outstrip him for a season—calumny, with her foul-tongued slander may bear him down for a time— but Ab some tall cliff that lifts its ample form, HweHs from the Vale and midway leaves the storm, Though ’round Its breast the rolling clouds are spread, Eternal sunshine settles on its head.” The whole energy of Troup’s mind and affec tions were concentrated in his devotieni to the principles of State Rights. He was, indeed, the embodiment of that idea; and between them and his native State* he had divided a love which was inexhaustible; In reply td a cor respondent who, a few years since* suggested to him that he was born in Alabama, he Wrote —“it is tfde he was born in territory which now constitutes the State of Alabama, but he always claimed to be a native Georgian, inas much as the place of his birth was At that time a portion of the State of Georgia.” So ill coifld he brook the idea that he was not wholly Georgian. But all that was mortal M. Troup is mouldering in the dust. In the distant ana retired county of Montgomery rest his remains There, far from the bustle and turmoil of the busy world, and remote even from the whistle of the locomotive, he sleeps the sleepofdeath. No monument is there, towering to the skies, to remind us that he once lived. But entomb ed among his own hills, and shaded by noble trees, the growth of his native soil, there is no thing to distnrb the solemn grandeur of his re pose; nothing to mar the stillness which sur rounds him, save the meandering brook, as it passes by oil its way to mingle with the waters of the Atlantic, and the moaning sounds of majestic pines, moved by the winds of heaven to mourn over departed greatness. Selected by himself, it is a fit resting place for so much virtue and so much patriotism. From the U. S. Catholic Miscellany. Wortli Remembering. It is a Weil known fact that most of the pro minent leaders of the Black Republican Par ty in several Northern States, were elected on the double ground of Abolition and anti-Pope ry. Slavery and Popery w r erc for them the two cardinal evils of the Republic. The no torious Anson Burlinghame, amongst others* contended that the Catholic Religion ought to be put down in this country, because it was a Pope who first established by law American Slavery. Now that the more rabid of the Free>oilers, having used the American Party for their ends, have either, left it, or hang to it by very loose threads—there are some Know Nothings iu the South-west who would fain persuade us that the anti-Catholic or Know Nothing Party is thoroughly sound on the slavery question, and that Catholicity and Abolitionism go hand ill hand. It is difficult* it takes nc ordinary share of Christian charity* to believe in the sincerity of mett who fliake such an insinuation. But innocently or not, they are bearing false witness against the whole Catholic body, by this absurd statement which is not believed by the vast majority of their brethren. Catholics are the only religious bo dy in the Union, who as such, are bound by the Constitution. Members of other denom inations hold to the Constitution in thfeiv indi vidual capacity, some from a sense of moral duty, others for mere political reasons. But there are others of them whom geographical boundaries, party connexions, and even reli gious opinions, array against the Constitution. Such a thing amongst Catholics is merely im possibles As long as Abolitionism is siuful and unconstitutional, so long will they oppose it, whether they live in the Sunny South, or on the frozen borders of Canada. We have said this much by way of preface to the following extract from the Washington correspondent of last Monday’s Evening News. It shows that the Know Nothings of the North think very differently from their brethren in Alabama on the friendly relations of Catholi city to Aboliftonisffl ; though his sweeping censure (meant for pfaige.) of all Protestant e'fo'igriihts is, We thiuk, highly tmjust; It can only refer with truth to the bulk of English and Scotch Protestants, whose minds have been poisoned at home by strolling lecturers, lay and clerical ; or to those numerous Ger mans, free-thinkers, whom the troubles of ’4B have. Vomited on-our shores —Infidels in fact* but whom I’rotestafiism covers With the Wide mantle of her loose name. Here is the extract; “Mr. Bayard Clarke, a Fillmore man, from New York, made a speech In the House the other night, in which he stated that the Pro testant Foreigners were all anti-SlaVefy* Add the Foreign Catholics pro-SlaVery. That Slavery and Catholicism wero twin aesp'otisms and that he would fight the one as the other. This course of action and remark on the part of Mr. Fillmore’s friends at the North, will kill bim as dead as a door nail in the South.” [From the New York Day Book.] A Nut for the Abolitionists. It is a well known fact, that the Abolition ists have howled and groaned with rage that a slave should exist, and have pictured a per son held to service or labor, as the most de graded and miserable being oti the earth, They have even gone so far as to say, that no slave would remain in bondage if he had an oppor tunity to “taste the blessings of freedom.” — Now, all such talk as this will do Very well foi‘ old fogies, blit the fact is* they neither dou’t take gt eat pains to tell the truth, or else they ate sUperatively igiiorant of what is going on about then!. It is* doubtless, true that hun dreds of slaves ate annually brought to New York, and other Northefrt cities* and not only make no attempt to escape, but most indig nantly repel the base approaches of abolitiou ists. We now speak of a fact. There is a slave stopping at the Metropolitan hotel, in this city, who belongs to the Rev James God frey, of Savannah, Ga. He is alone, with perfect liberty to act for himself, to go and come When he pleases. If the abolitionists want to know where to find a faithful colored man, who possesses the entire confidence of his master, and won’t steal nor cut anybody s throat, let them come to us, and we can point them out. Our reporter, yesterday afternoon, saw the slave iu question, and had some con versation with him, in regard to the klavcs at the South, for whom the “freedom shrickers” at the North are howling. The slave infi nitely the superior, both mentally and morally of the abortion crew. The per dtem allowance to Members of Con gress is at anliUd. The Senate bill heretofore passed, givingsoo per year, was changed in the House so as to give- $3,000 a year, de ducting for voluntary absence daring the ses sion, and giving nojjiooks except those printed by .Congress. In this form it passed the House by 101 to 00. -It was at once sent to the Sen ate, and there passed by 2T to 12. The bill applies to the present Congress, the per diem of which for this session araounis to about $2,- 000 for each member. —Exchange JeHiis--53,00, fa fa%ince.

Some gentleman of the opposition, with “more zeal than knowl edge” for Fillmore, had the rote.taken, for the purpose of playing oif the same brag-game, as in some of the Northern States. But it would’nt do. When the vote was counted out, it, stood, for Buchanan, 85—Fillmore, 70 —Brooks and Kansas, 1. When it is remembered that the wool-hat bo.yß are not hi the habit of congre gating much at watering places, tne above vote is but a feeble indication of the overwhelm ing majority that will be given to Buchanan in November. The vote for Brooks and Kansas, menlipned above, was given by Col. E M. McGee, a bor der ruffian, who, together with Capt B. Jones, have been appointed by the Georgia emigrants in Kansas, to canvass the State, to raise then and money for the purpose of sustaining South ern interests in that Territory. That vote is indicative of his feelings on the subject. With him, Kansas is first, last and everything., They are engaged, heart and soul, in the work, ahd should receive the cordial support of every true hearted Southerner. Two meetings have been held here by them within the last tew days, at which, about four hundred dollars have been Subscribed Sophronv - r La Maupiu.

They first went to Marseilles, where, as they had good voices, they were engaged at the op era. She soon fell in love with a young woman;. The object of her whimsical affection was shut up iu a convent, to which Maupin obtained ac cess as a novice, When she set fire to it, and in the confusion ran away with her favorite.— Maupin w r as taken and condemned to be burn ed, but as the young wbman was restored tb her friends, she was pardoned, She went tb Paris, and made her first appearence on the opera stage in 1695, when she performed the part of Pallas, iii cadmus, with the greatest success*. The applause was so violent that she took off her casqlife to salute and thank the public, wheii her beauty caused them to re double their applause. Her success was from that time uninterrupted, but her strangest act ing was not Upon the stage- Dvimeni, the counter-tenor haVLiig affronted her, she put on men’s. chothes, watched for hiin in the Place des Victories, and insisted ort his drawing his sword and fighting her, which he refusing, she caned him, and took from him his watch and snbfif box. The next day Du meni boasted at the opera house that he had an d fended himself against three men who attemp ted to rob him, when Maiipin tbld the story &nd produced his w'atch and snhff box as proofs of his cowardice and the caning. Another person only escaped her chastisement by pub licly asking: her pardon; after hiding himself at the Pallds Royal for three weeks. At a ball, given by the brother of the King of France, she put on men’s fclothcs, and having behaved impertinently to a lady, three of the friends bf the lady, supposing her to be a man, challeng ed her out for it, and she killed them all, when cobly returning to the ball, she told what had happened to the King’s brother, who Ob tained her pardon.

Another Old-Line Whig Senator otf fob Buchanan*—Senator JoneS, Tennessee.—- Senator Jones, of Tennessee, delivered ft mag nificent speech in the Senate to-day. Without Surrendering any of life whig principals, ho declared his purpose to Support the democratic; nominees for President and Vice President: He takes this positiofi as the only sure means of averting the dangers which uow threaten the XJnion from sectionalism. He examined at length several platforms and the candidates of the three parties j and showed eOuelHsively that the true position’ of an old-line whig in the present contest is with the democratic party. Mr. Jones made a triumphant vindication of Mr. Buchanan from the charge of having done injustice to Mr. Clay in regard to the charge of bargain and corruption. His speaeh wad listened to by the Senate and a crowdod gallery with marked interest, and is destined to exert a powerful influence on the public mind. • W. Dawson, Esq., one of the Bill-’ more electors in Virginia, has declined, and intends to support Buchanan and Brecken ridge. He says: “However painful it may be to me to aban don old prejudices aud old opinions the pre sent condition of the political parties of the country impel me, as a southern man,to decline the appointment, aud to act, at least for the prcscr, with the DenJocrfttio party. This posm tion I assume, not in a hurry, or without reflection, but with a solemn conviction, after exhausting all the means of information Within my reach, of its justness and propriety. If it is an error, it is an error of the head and not of the heart, for, by all that is sacred, I declare I am actuated alone by the love of home aud country. * * * Then let tts once, fellow cittizens, when we go to the ballot box this fall, leave our prejudices behind us, and vote for Buchanan, Breckinridge and the South.” No. 18‘,
