The Americans in Kentucky.
The American State Council of Kentucky met on the 2d inst., Hon. THOS. H. CLAY presiding. Among the resolutions adopted were the following:
Resolved, That the Americans of Kentucky require their candidates for Congress to avow the determination to oppose the passage of any law establishing the basis of suffrage in the Territories upon mere inhabitancy. They demand citizenship as the first requisite and qualification for suffrage, and they regard the proposition of the Buchanan Administration, to enable aliens to participate in the formation of State Constitutions, as a gross perversion of principle, a wide departure from sound policy, and the best evidence that time and events have added to the reasons which originally induced the organization of the American Party.
Resolved, That while the American Party in the State of Kentucky tolerates free discussion and free expression of individual opinions on the various political questions of the day, yet, under every political complication, the pure question of Americanism, shall take precedence of all others.
