LAWRENCE, K. T.
Saturday Mornic?, Aug. 28, 1853.
The ultraists of the slave States find
themselves checkmated, at every step
they take toward disunion, by the conser
vatives. The majority of the people of
the South are sagacious enough to per
ceive the danger there is in them and all
their institutions, in leaving the Union.
But the ultraists, if in a very decided
majority, are exceedingly active. The
' orators are always upon the stump, and
are always fearless,- It is in Alabama
where we find the feeling of disunion
". strongest, and its great champion there is
the Hon. Mr. Yancey. Coming further
north, we find many professed pro-slavery
ultraists, but they are more cautious.
The Richmond South is one of this class.
It is, in its sympathies, with the Di suninn
party. Its editorials all squint toward
disunion. It always copies the speeches
of the disunionists, and gives the fullest
accounts of their meetings. Yet it is
. cautious about uttering any decided dis-
;"union sentiments in its editorial columns.
" The South copied Mr. Yancey's recent
speech, and commented upon it. The
Eichmond Enquirer notices the articles in
the following style i
"The great fault of Mr. Yancey's
scheme does not consist in the 'prema
ture' character of his attempt, but in the
fact that it intends t ' blow against the
integrity of the Union.' The enterprise
in which he is embarked, is one in which
the people of this State will take no Ti.irtL

resort to tae intrigues of an lrresDonsible

&Qt.ioQ. the practical, Garrisonian dis
unionists in Kansas, who opposed 'the
Voting" policy- because ikey tctre too pure to
hold qfjfices under the Territorial government,
when; the Free State party decided, at
Grasshopper Falls, to participate in the
election in October, were the first to de
mand ofiices, and to prevent division in
the" Free State ranks, they ; were, reluc
tantly awarded to them. 2io sooner were
they "sworn into office, than, like genuine
disuniorMts, they moved :to destroy the
legal Territorial government, to give place
to a revolutionary government; and for
ten days they prevented that body from
participating in their legislative duties,
while discussing their damnable scheme
of dissolution. For ten days the wheels
of legislation were wholly checked, save
so far as related to the introduction of bills
by some men uto wished to destroy the legal
government, for the chartering of town,
bridge, insurance and banking companies.
Though they wished to bring the govern
ment to an end, they wished legal charters
for themselves or friends, that they might
the more successfully monopolize all the
channels of money making in the Terri
tory. The journals of that Legislative
Assembly will develope fact3 of a most
astounding character in regard to the cor
ruption of these Topekaites corruptions
by the side of which " Minneola" is cast
into the back ground. -
Whether South or North, in Kansas or
out of it, we hope the people wiU strug
gle, from this time forth, to put down dis
unionists and to keep them out of oflice.
They are a curse to any country. Instead
of building tr, their end and aim . is to
destroy, and to that end they resort to ex
pedients of a most damning character.
The Democratic journals which sus
tained Stephen A. Douglas in his Kansas
policy, are jubilant over the result of the
late election in Kansas. The Philadelphia
Press, on the first reception of the result,
thus commented : ' . . .
" While sycophantic Conventions, pack
ed to order by reckless placemen or hungry
expectants, are glorifying the English
bribe as a sacred peace offering to Kansas,
and making a test upon all Democrats, a

attempted its resurrection. After a bitter
struggle of more than a year, under Mr.
Buchanan's Administration, during which
honest public servants-were betrayed, lofty

stifle investigation, and compel Represen

failing in either, to go out of the Demo

APPEAL OF THE TWIN MOUNT) HARMONIC COL
To th Friends of a A'eto and True System of
Jxiucatum: the toregomg documents, embrac
ing our own Articles of Association, and also the
Articles into which we propose entering with
those who may consent to aid us. constitute the
basis of the appeal we have to make, in behalf
ot the college we wish to lound. And those
whom we thus address, as the friends of a New
and True System of Education, we feel to be
already so in harmony with us. that the bare
reading of those documents will suffice to bring
them to a full and proper realization oi our views
and aims. We shall then be spared the need of
a statement ol our enterprise, and almost of an
argument to induce cooperation in it.
t or ourselves, and for the threat Y est. and for
all, in all parts, who may wish to come to us, we
seek to institute the means of a great and a per
fect Education. An Education which shall pre
pare us subjects tor, ana develop taem into, the
True Life of a progressed and unfolded humani
ty: and which shall therefore be. in its traininsr.
as comprehensive as Life's interests, as practi
cable as Life's duties, and as perpetual aa Life's
destiny. An Education which shall be Harmon
ic: which shall cultivate the body.aa well as the
mind; teach health, equally with morals; and
ripen the whole being into strength, efficiency,
usefulness and happiness. An Education which
shall be open to all, and which shall bless alL
recardiesa of Nature, or distinctions and nreia-
dices of men; which shall be as free to the coo
per Hue of the est. or the oara earn of the
South, as the paler faoe of the East or North;
and which, in particular, shall place every Wo
man by the side of her equal brother, Man, and
thus help atone for the long wrong done to her.
An Education which shall teach Science and cot
beet; Facts and Laws, and not Doctrines; Na
ture, aad not a Creed; Troth, and not Authori
ty: the life Present, and not the dead Past. A nd
an Education of, and into. Freedom; where bo
mind shall be shackled, no thought fettered, and
no aspiration reoreamd: but. Aha whnla hein
out to a full and perfect Individuality. In one
word, both for ourselves and others, wa seek to
realise this entire Education we have portrayed,
bv the only means that can ever Txwsiblr brin
it, the foundation of aa Institution that shall
be ncer,u in its aims & College! Nature a
School of Science a Gymnasium of Life. -
Not upon considerations of 8lfLsh gain to
those aidinr us. must ear anoeaL in Kh!f f '
help to esUblih such aa I&sUtuu-jn, be baaed. 1
To organise and endow such a College, is a work
of the highest duty and philanthropy, as it is
also of the truest Reform; and, it is therefore,
we commend the enterprise to the largest and
most liberal charities of the friends 'of lrogress
throughout the country.' . We urge theelaims of
the Institution we would create, upon all who
have outgrown the etd system! of faith and Edu -cation:
and especially npoa all such, who are
blessed with todowhattheheart prompts.
Others will aid in building up other institu
tions; who will aid in building up ours? Secta
rians will contribute without stmt to establish
Institutions devoted to Sectarianism; who will
contribute to establish one such Institution de
voted to Freedom? Who will help found and
endow one College in all this broad land, con
secrated to Iree Thought and Free Speech on
aa subjects? Shall we not have at least one
such, among all these others, where Freedom is
crucified?' shall Reformers and Liberal ists be
less wise or less tealous, than Sectarians? Shall
they do less to propagate truth than others to
propagate error? Who among them that have
means, will let slip this opportunity to strike a
blow that will tell so powerfully-in the right di
rection, and conduce so eminently to the spread
of free principles, and the advancement of all
that they esteem Progress? Especially, what
friend of Harmonic Education will step forward
to aid us? What friend of the Indian will help
found here a College, where many an Indian of
this red man's ancient home, and still further
spreading est, shall yet be taught? What
friend of Woman will give here to ofier equal
race and equal prise perchance Professor's
chairs, and highest Aeademio honors that ever
graced the brow of man to- Woman? What
enemy of Slavery will give, here in a Territory
just wrested from its grasp, and on the confines
of a State soon to be redeemed from its thrall,
to throw wide pen the doors of a favored Seat
of Science to those it has so outlawed and op
pressed, and thus welcome to halls of learning,
the benighted graduates of its dark and ancient
schools? Who that have children to educate,
will help here endow a College where they may
be educated? Who that wish to educate them
selves, will first take stock in the College, and
then come here and live on the live acres they
thereby secure, and thus enjoy the benefits of
the Institution they helped build eat fruit of
the tree of their own planting? And who that
are able to give, though not wishing to come
here themselves, nor perhaps to send their chil
dren, (though their scholarships will educate
any others they may wish to serve.) yet will help
promote an enterprise which shall bless thou
sands of their countrymen, and especially kindle
a beacon star, which shall give light to all the
West? Are there not enough to be found, to
subscribe the fifty shares (of a thousand dollars
each) at once, so that the Institution may be
started immediately now, while the lands to
be secured for its endowment, are low, and the
chosen spot is open for the emigration of those
who would wish to settle there, and the Society
is not formed in the region round-about, and
thus the College would be exerting its influence
to form that society? Are there not enough to
insure this result, by subscribing one share apiece;
and yet, are there not some, who, as they are
able, so they will be glad, to subscribe more than
that amount two, five, or perhaps ten shares?
And are there not some who will subscribe half
a share, (two uniting their means, and counting
as one.) and others, yet, who will dtnate to the
College, such still lesser sum as they may be
able? The aid of all will be needed; and the
sooner that aid can be rendered, the better it
will be for on r end .
Thelocition of the College is all that could be
asked. Twin Mound, in the county of Douglas,
and Territory of Kansas, so named from two
natural Mounds near each other, can hardly be
surpassed, either for beauty or healthiness, by
any locality in the West, Add to this, it is in
the heart of a rapidly settling country, directly
on a great stage route, (soon, in all probability,
to be superceded by a Kailroad,) so that even as
a pecuniary scheme, the College can scarcely fail
to prove a profitable investment.
We invite correspondence, touching the mat
terof establishing the College. We wish to hear
from our friends in all sections of the country,
and to receive from them assurances of what
they will do. We shall also be glad to communi
cate any other particulars of our effort, to those
who may desire to be further informed. Letters
addressed to the officers of the Association,
should be directed President, or Secretary, (as
tho case may be,) T. M. H, C. A ..Twin Mound,
