We lierewith present tlie first numlwr .of The
Walls Kantat Chief, from Trof, treating that it
may make its TiaiU trerlijr, tot many years to
come, and never trroly.
Onr principal reasons for the change were given
several weeks before onr removal; and s few
words about what we propose to do, 3iayue in
place now. We came here for legitimate business
purposes, and to stay. Wo do nut come to run in
the interest of any person, nor against any per
son. Our object is peace and good will, and
ifwe ever depart from that line, it bliatl not
be for auy intentional act of aggression npon
onr part. We come here because we believe
that at this 'place we can make oar paper
more useful and influential, and make it
more to the interest of the neople of the whole
County to extend to us their patronage. The
County Seat is the centre of Comity business, and
from here the people naturally expect to receive
their information upon County affairs. We ex
pect) to give all the County news of importance,
from every part of the Conuty, and to make it to
the interest of every person in the Comity to sub
scribe for the paper. We may not be able to do
this satisfactorily, for a n eek or two ; tor the hur
ry and confusion of moving allows us but little
time for it, and we have nut yet got the lay of the
laud. But when we get onr office affairs properly
regulated, we hope to be able to issue a paper
that will be satisfactory to the people.
We shall always strive to advocate the best in
terests of Troy, and at the same time, those of all
the other parts of the Comity. A County Seat is,
in a measure, the property of the whole County.
Here the people are compelled to come to trans
act their Comity business, and it is to their inter
est that the town should prosper, lint it is of far
more importance to the Couuty Seat, to cultivate
the friendship and good will of the towns
and neighborhoods iu other parts of the County.
While it is natural for the public men of the
County to locate about the County Seat, there
are men in other parts of the County who are en
titled to consideration. The offices and the pat
ronage of the County should be equitably distrib
uted among the various parts of jt, so that all the
people n ho are taxed to keep up the County, may
enjoy a just proportion of the honors and emolu
ments. This is the first time we have ever lived in a
County Seat; and having always been an outsid
er, we claim to kuow something of the feeling of
the people of a County ton aril the Couuty Seat.
It cannot have escaped observation, that iu a
large proportion of Counties, especially in the
newer parts of the West, there exists a deep hat
red or jealousy of the County Seat, among the
people outside ; aud the expressions, " County Scat
King" and "Court Honse Clique," may be heard
almost evcrj' day; and as sure as a contest comes
np on the County Seat question, the existing
Conuty Seat fights at a great disadvantage, with
the chances largely agaiust her. It is not because
the people generally of the County Seat are any
worse than those of the other parts of the Coun
ty; bnt it is because the politicians and office
seekers gravitate to the County Scat, and work
early and late to take in the bulk of the spoils,
leaving the other parts of the County out in the
cold. The people come to lay the blame npon the
County Seat; and for any extravagance or mis
management on the part of a Connty officer, the
County Seat is denounced for it.
We do not make these remarks as a lecture to
Troy, nor for the sake of giving advice; but we
speak of existing facts, learned by the experience
of our whole life. We know that it is in the power
of this town, and of every other County Seat, to
establish such friendly terms with the whole
County, that her strength, in matters that her
stability and material property, will be invinci
ble. It shall be our aim to promote such rela
tions with all parts of the County. Our long res
idence in Kansas lias been wholly in Doniphan
Connty; we have been iutimnte with her affairs
from the beginning; and we have no other in
ducement than to labor for the welfare of the
As to keeping np the local fights and divisions
of former years, if there are any disposed to do
so, we wish them a happy time of it. Every cam
paign brings its own issues, and will force its own
divisions. If John Smith and Richard Bollix had
bitter contest a year or two 'ago, producing a
surplus amount of bile that was not expended at
the time, that bile will not keep over till another
year; but the partisans of Smith and Bollix will
divide np promiscuously in the next contest, some
on one si Jo and some on another, regardless of all
previous fuss and feathers. The battle of Get
tysburg could not have been fonght npon the
plans marked out for the battle of Waterloo.
This means that, in the year of grace lc7, it
would be folly for John Smith and Richard Bol
lix to stand, one ou tbe field of Waterloo and the
other at Gettysburg, and attempt to kick tbe top
of each other's head off, to decide the question
whether Jonah swallowed the whale or St. Pat
rick killed tbe snakes in Ireland.
About the -local division in Troy, of which we
have heard so much, we have never nndcrstood
it, and don't want to. We do not know where
the equinoctial line runs that dit ides the two in
terests; and for anght we know, we may be
printing a paper on one side of the line, and tak
ing our rations on the other side. If any per
son wishes to subscribe for the Chirf, or put in
a,n advertisement, we will agree not to ask him
on which aide of this local Chinese Wall or Ma
son and Dixon's line he roosts.
Of politics it is unecessary to speak. Onr posi
.tion is decided, and well known. We must say
what we think, hit or miss. We cannot promise
the Democracy' to flatter them much, and can ask
their support only upon the promise of giving
them the general and County news. If they see
fit to support one Eepnblican for President, and
we another, it is only a question of choice be
tween Republicans, and there is not so much differ
ence lietween us, after all. It is said that "he is
qnr best friend who Ulls ns of oar faults." On
this principle, ne shall claim to be a tine friend
of tB4.GTcly Democracy.

The Baltimore Convention has met, fussed and
fumed, and has done just what it was arranged
long since that it should do ft has adopted the
Cincinnati Platform, and nominated Greeley and
Brown almost unanimous! r.
Thus ends theold Democratic party, and does.
not save Greeley. lie is doomed to defeat, just as
be has been from tbe start; bnt the Democratic
party baslostiUgtip, and can never secure it upon
tbe masses of the people as in the old time. Is this
the end for which it has been laboring and plot
ting for two generation t If the bones of the
dead ever rattle iu their graves, what a clattering
there will bo in tbe grave-yards that hold the re
mains of the great lathers and sages of the Demo
cratic party! It will sound as if the ghosts are
playing their own coronach with castanets. So
this is tbe end of tbe proud old Democratic party!
It is like a man working for a life-time to build
op a grand home and wealthy estate, and then
swapping it off for a yaller dog. And then they
went seriously at it, and appointed a National
Execntive Committee, to manage tbe affairs of
the party, tbe same as they used to do. It em
ploys a lot of men to labor for its well-being, then
deliberately cut its throat in their presence.
Bnt it will look funny, after all, to see Greeley's
carcass rotting in the Democratic charnel-house!
Greeley Mea ia DoBipbaa County,
We have takeu some pains to ascertain the con
dition of Orccleyism iu this County, the extent
to which it affects the Bepublican ranks, and the
proportion of the Democratic vote that he will re
ceive. If the movement is no healthier in other
parts of the country than ltis here, (aud we think
that, with tbo exception orbere audt here a local
ity, it is not,) Greeley ism is destined to come out
decidedly languid. Here in Troy, we do not kuow
of a singlo Greeley Bepublican, and some Demo
crats are most emphatic in their prophecies that
they vt ill not touch Greeley. At White Cloud,
there is not a'Bepublican but would rather he
called a rebel than a Greeley man, aud some-of
the Democrats will Hot touch Horace. At High
land, the Democracy are pretty well drilled in for
Greeley, aud have made up a Tribune club, which
they will be trj ing to dispose of before the year
is out. W e have heard great stories about the
number of Bepublicans there who are for Greeley;
but when it comes to naming the meu, it gener
ally pans out that one Bepublican ia for Greeley,
with an even chance that be may change his
mind, when he finds hat a crowd he is called
upon to train in. We have not beard so much
from Iowa Point, but think the Bepublican
strength there will stick together. About Fan
ning, there is not a Greeley Bepublican, and some
Democrats will not vote for him. In Wolf Biver,
the Bepublicans have no renegades, and the Democ
racy are by no means unanimous for Greeley. In
Wathena, we hear of a few Bepublicans, not to
exceed half a dozen, who are for Greeley. We
have heard nothing concerning the Democrats
down there. At Doniphan, we learn of one lead
ing Republican that has followed Greeley off, and
hear that there are several others. We have the
anthority of a Greeley Democrat for saying that
there are four times as many Democrats down
there who will vote for Grant, as there are Be
publicans who will vote for Greeley. We have
not heard from Geary City, but the Bepublicans
there are always straight. Tbe same with refer
ence to Marion Township. From Ilurr-Oak, we
have heard but little.
Ciphering the thing up, we are satisfied that
the fight will not be as interesting even as a fight
between the Republicans aud Democrats on a
straight party issue; and we believe we are safe
in setting down Doniphan County as good for one
thousand majority for Grant.
Bring Us tiie Xuwg. To make a good local
paper, we must depend, to a considerable extent,
upon tbe kindness of others. We particularly re
quest farmers in every part of tbe County to give
us a call, or write, and communicate every item
of news of the least importance in their neighbor
hoods. We want all the news crops, improve
ments, marriages, deaths, accidents, fires, storms,
floods, thefts, brag stock or products anything,
in fact, going iu the neighborhood. Try it for a
while, and see what an interest it will create.
PCSHIXO Tmscs. The Bepublicans of Xemaba
County are determined to make Greeleyism look
peaked in that Couuty, if work can do it. There
never were men more active in a political cam
paign, nor more entbnsiastic. At Seneca, they
have a Grant Club of almost 00 nicmlers; they
have a fine Glee Club; they are organizing a Xo.
1 Brass Baud; and they have sent foracannou,
to wake the natives. Very appropriately, they
have sent a large club of subscribers for the Chirf,
with a promise of more.

Judge Kingman for Supreme Judge of Kansas,

Some of the lawyers have at times complained
that he was a little slow in rendering decisions ;
bnt he wants to be right before he gives an opin

and honest Judges are not so plenty, in this cor
rupt age, that they can be thrown aside for triv
ial causes. Physically, Judge Kingman is not
strong; but intellectually, he has no superior in
the State. He filled the office, and attended to it
faithfully, when the salary scarcely afforded him
a living; now that the pay is something nearer
just, let not the place be given to one more favor
ed bat less competent and deserving.

Capt. M. M. Towne, the efficient and energetic
Assistant Superintendent of the Atchison and
Nebraska Railroad, recently corresponded with
the agents of that company, requesting them to
scud a statement, carefully compiled, of the crop
prospects in the country aliout their stations.
We are permitted, by Capt. Towne, to make the
following extracts from the letters ha has received
in reply to his communications. We have no
doubt they will be of general interest to our rea
ders. W. II. Xesbit, of Doniphan, writes: "Bren
ner and McCrum both agree that there are from
thirty to forty thousand bushels of com to be
shipped from this station; of barley aluint 35,000
bushels, and oats from 20,000 to 25,000' bushels.
The wheat business will be small, say from 5,000
to 10,000 lim-hel-."
R. P. It. Miu-t.it, at Troy Junction, writes:
"There is still a large amount of old corn in this
section. Spring beat and oat n ill turnout a
full crop, from tbe present prospect. There will
not lie any fall wheat to ship. I think that there
will be at least one hundred cars of grain to ship
from this station."
J. W. Heed, of Tanning, writes: "There are
about 3,000 bushels of old corn ill this vicinity;
barley, 3,000 bushels; oats between 50,000 aud
73,000 bushels. The winter wheat has failed;
scarcely enough for seed. There is a fair crop of
Spring wheat. Judging from the present appear
ance of corn, there will be an abundance this
T. J. Vandersuce, of Highland, writes : "In
this neighborhood the com is very goqd, conside
ring the Iateucss of the season. There is fully as
much planted, if not more th.innsn.il; yet I think
the yield per acre, will not be as heavy, from tin:
fact of the heavy, dashing rains, which washed
the land badly, especially after the .corn was
about 8 inches high. The fall wheat is a cry short,
and not enough for seed. What there is, the ber
ry is very line. Spring wheat it pretty good, bnt
not very much was sown. Barley is v cry good,
and much sown more than last ear by at least
one-third. Oats very heavy; a great breadth of
land sown, andif nothing happens it between now
aud the harvest the yield will be very heavy."
J. E. Moobe. of Iowa Point, writes: "Kecard-
ing old corn on hands at this point, the supply is
limited. Probably some 10,000, or 12,000 bnsbels
could lie boughtj if the prices should advance.
The fall wheat is a, total failure here. Snriii"
wheat promises an abundant yield, but there "as
notasmueu sown as mere Mouiiiime been unit
not tbe seed been so scarce. Of eats and barley
there is a good average sown, and they promise
to yield well. Of rye there is not so much 'riant-
iil. Com never looked finer than at the jirt.vnt
time. My estimate of the amount of grain that
will find a market at that point is as follows:
Old com, 10,000 to 12,000 bushels; Spring wheat,
12,000 to 15,000 bushels; barley and oats, 15,000
to 20,000 bushels. I cannot, as vet. cive anv
fair estimate ou corn."
CW. Korea, of White Cloud, writes: ".Of fall
wheat them will be none for shipment. The pros
pect for spring wheat is good, but no great
breadth of laud sown. There will be more oata
thau during any past season. A heavy crop T
barley is reported in this vicinity. Com looks
well and the crop will be targe. There are prob
ably thirty thousand bushels of old corn that
wonld naturally come to this market for ship
ment, provided prices justified."
Titos B. Boavkek, of Bnlo, 20eb., writes: "I
never saw crops look better. Wheat, oats and
barley look splendid, and are nearly ready for
harvesting. Nime of the farmers are cntting
alreaily, and all snythey- never sawabetter yield.
Grain stands thick and the heads are filled out
splendidly. Fanners are highly elated at the
prospects. Com I never saw lookiuir better.
Take the whole country through and it will av
erage from 50 to 75 bushels per acre. There is
plenty of old com in the country; several t bonsaud
bushels at least, But present jirices will not in

'There is at this time from ten to fifteen car loads
of old com ready for shipment, if the prices
wonld justify. There is a good prospect forsmall
grain for shipment from this vicinity."
W. Till, of Dawson's Mills, writes: "Winter
wheat was nearly all frozen out, yet there is some
little being cnt now. The prospect for spring
wheat was never better than now, and there was
more sown this year than ever iiefore. Oats,
also, will lie a very large crop; and com. with the
present prospect, will give a large yield."
Alsebt SHEuwood, of Ilnmboldt, Neb, writes:
"The following is the pYoliable amount of grain
and live stock to be shinned- from Humboldt the
coining season: wheat, 21,000 bnsbels; mm, 35.000 J

"Com, spring wheat, oats, rye and barter all
promise au abundant crop hereabouts, and if the
season continues favorable there will be heavier
crops this season than ever before since the conn-'f
try was nettled. I'otatoes also promise a heavy

little old grain now on hand. The prospect is
good for heavy shipments of stock from this coct
try daring the coming fall, and farmers feel buoy

A murderous shooting affray took: place near
the city of Thayer ou Friday; tbe 21st nit. The
circumstances were as follows: Two horses were
stolen ia Chetopa township. The citizens of that
township, to the number of fifty, immediately
gave chase, cornering the thieves in a dance honse,
near the Southwestern coal company's banks,
three miles south of Thayer. Constable Boss
attempted to arrest the parties, when a Texas des
perado, named forehand, filed at him, the ball
entering the stomach. The murderer then made
good his escape, aided by several of the frail sisters,
who composed a part of the assembly. Boss died
of his wounds Sunday, leaving a young wife and
child. The murderers were arrested iu Parsons,
on Monday night, and doubtless have, ere this,
been dealt with as their crimes merit,

Senator I'nmeroy, tibohas been tmeli:igin
New England and New York, and ha iiWrved
the drift i.f political currents, rrganls the i.iuvas
with e inplaceucy. He says that moat i.f the
prominent Republicans whom he has met look
npon the assured indorsement of the Cincinnati
ticket at Baltimore with entire sntisfuetion, on
the gronud that a large nmnberof Democrats will
refuse to support that ticket despite that indorse
ment, while it will drite kick to tbe regular
ranks many Republicans wbo would otherwise
have stood with tbe Liberals.
The colored people, he savs, will rally to Grant
ra tnaue, because he has insisted upon a rigid
enforcement of tbe reconstruction acts, snspcuded
the writ of habeae corpui to suppress Knklux vio
lence, anil protected them at the ballot-box, while
Greeley has softened toward their formerly trea
cberons masters, advocated leniency and amnesty,
and bailed Jeff Davis, when they tbongfat that
many of them should be banged for treason.
In relation to the position of financiers and
bnsiness men he expressed tbe same views hereto
fore reported as tbe opinions of others upon that
question. Both at Boston and New York men of
this class say that they can't afford a change;
that Grant will continue the present financial
policy, which renders bnsiness steady and safe;
whileGreeley, by inanguratinga spirit of change,
would produce fluctuation in tbe money market,
to he followed by all its attending evils. They
consider tbe latter unreliable, and that sharpen
would impose upon and "put np jobs on him."
In the bands of designing Democrats, tbey say,
be would be worse than a Democrat. We have
our national debt and currency where we can con
trol it, and we mean to keep it there. "Bnt
Grant's great strength," says tbe Senator, "Ilea
in the fact that behind him are the loyal, fighting
Union men, who saved the country and its finan
cial credit, while behind Greeley are tbe odds and
ends, tbe discordant element of the commnnity,
the worst of tbe Democrats, and the impractical
Democrats; and, besides that, tbe women are
down ou him.niTatkrngtm (D. C.) Chronicle.
A man by the name of E. H. Abraham was

before last. He was from Lyon county, and was
engaged in selling agricultural machinery. While

cut, and there were bruises on his body, from
which it is supposed that he got off from tbe
wagon to extricate his team, and was kicked or
otherwise injured by the horses. If r. Abraham

He is probably opposed to corruption. A District

porters from him by showing up his miserable
band writing. To a majority of them, his hiero
glyphics are as intelligible as the moat elegant
chirography in the world.
