Tbe Fort Scott Monitor, as 'intimated some
3 weeks ago, has flopped around, and lioistcd tbo
Greeley flag. The paper has nominally changed
ownership; bnttlioso who are presumed to know,
assert that there has really been no change. The
paper was, and still is, owned by George A. Craw
ford. Crawford came to Kansas a Buchanan Detn
ocrat. The first be was ever heard of by the peo
ple of tba State at large, was in 1861, when-be
cane out a Bepnbllcan, and a candidate for Gov
ernor, at tbe same time. lie was the man selec
ted by Lane for Governor, Tt hen there was no-va-
. cancy, in order to force out Gov. Kobinwm when
but half his term was expired. Jrom that time,
he was a candidate fur Governor at every election,
up to 1863. Then he formed a coalition with
Poraeroy, for the United States Senate; but some
how the qnill burst, and be has .fur a j ear been
fighting Poneroy most bitterly, lie aspires to
the United States Senate, and is said to bo almost
insane upon the subject. Uis ostensible sale of
the'Monitor, is for the purpose of malting Hie Ke
publicaus believe that be has- no sympathy with
tbe Greeley men cment ; lint if, throogh borne mys
terious dispensation of Providence, that party
should carry the State, Crawford would como out
from behind the curtain, and proclaim that he
was directing the machine all the w bile, lint be
cannot deceive tbe Republicans. They hold him
responsible for the change in the Monitor, and for
tbo capital that is being made over another prom
inent Republican paper coming out for Greeley.
Tbe thing was foreshadowed too long before-hand;
and even if the sale is tona fide, he seemed sud
denly to bo In extraordinary haste to close tbe
bargain, and to give the advantages to the Greeley-party,
when Republicans were negotiating for
Bat the Republicans arc starting another pa
per at Fort Scott, and things will go on as before,
notwithstanding Crawford's little strategic move
ment with his Monitor.
t" Tbo papers are demanding the dismissal of
IV. C. Webb from tbelnsurance Department, and
are calling upon the Governor to request him to
resign. Our prhato opinion is, that the Governor
does not care a Continental whether any man
supports .Grant or Greeley; and it is pretty cer
tain that he will not ask Webb to give npwhat
he used such extraordinary means to bestow upon
him. There is bnt one remedy, and that is for tbe
Legislature to wipe out the law, and the Superin
tendent with it Tbe Insurance law is a swindle,
tobegin'with, and thn Superintendent, a creature
of the Governor, more powerful than tbe Govern
or himself. Among hands, they succeeded in so
bamboozling the Legislature, that tbe law could
not be touched, except as tbe Superintendent rec
ommended. Now, we hope to see the whole thing
cleaned out, like a rotten cheese with all tbe
maggots that infest it.
-GT One steal that was ran throngh the I4sla
tore last Winter, concocted by the Auditor, was
a little arrangement to take 1500 from the Treas
ury, to pay some men for bobbing around over tbo
State and pretending to make some sort of a rec
ord relative to school lands. It was arranged,
before-hand, that F. P. Baker was to have tbe
grab. The bill passed, and Thomati and Baker
have got the money. Now these two pals are
engaged in fighting Republican corruption, and
the Liberals propose to try to re-elect Thoman
State Auditor. This Thoman is the biggest ras
cal in the State, and has been tbe means of steal
ing enough money from tbe Treasury to build tbe
other wing of the State House.
ty It is reasonable to snppose that tbe Greeleys
brag about tbe strength of their ticket, and the
tremendous accessions to the party, is entitled to
the same weight in every part of the country.
That it is mostly blow and bnt very little reality,
is fairly illustrated by a statement published in
the St. Joseph Cattle, the other day. A corres
pondent of that paper, writing from somewhere
in Kansas, coolly informed the public that they
need not b surprised if Kansas gave 50,000 ma
jority for Greeloy! Nobody dreams that Greely
has the remotest prospect of carrying Kansas
Yet the above assertion is as reliable as any of
the similar ones coming from all over tbe conn

A.Oaborn, of Leavenworthy-wiH be a candidate
for Governor, before the Republican State Con
vention, lie is an old Doniphan County man, and
althongh no longer one of ns, he is a firm friend
of our Connty; and if be were in the Governor's
office, we do not believe that tbe fact of a man
being a resident of Doniphan Connty, would be
considered sufficient ground to withhold any fa
vors from him. Tom. has always been a stead
fast Republican, and possesses more ability than
has occupied the Gubernatorial chair for many a

resides in Neosho Connty. He is a Pennsylvania
an, and served during the rebellion, in the Army
of the Potomac. During the war, he also spent a
long term in Liby 'Prison, enjoying the hospitality
of that place to its fullest extent- He is a good
man, a sonnd Republican, and deserving of any
position which the party may see fit to confer up
hs A Greeley call has been issued in St. Joseph,

A great deal of forced brine is wasted over the
corruption of Kansas politics; but sermons on
corruption are geuerally spoilt by winding up
with tbe" proposition to inaugurate the millenni
um by tuning some man outcf office, and put
ting iu snWbodj else, who is 'wanting office vory

souls, bo" proclaim her rumiptaM fro"' morning
till uightjand keep tbe fact before tire world that
she is ina very bad condition. There is doubtless
much room fur improvement; bat when we see
tbe proposition, for instance, to begin purification
by telliug auch a man as John XL Price that be is
not wanted, and preparing to pitch overboard or
swap off W. II. Smallwood for tbe benefit of some
body eke, looks suspicious. If there are any
two men iu tbe State who have escaped even the
suspicion of being corrnpt, tbosa two men are
John M. Price and W. XL. Smallwood. In their
private, business, or political character, they have
always stood above reproach. If any cituon of
this Conuty desires office, let us work for him ap
on bis merits, not by attempting to pall some
other good man down. As tar as Smallwood is
concerned, we imagine there will be an interest
ing time in getting tbe people of Doniphan Conn
ty to throw him aside. And even if thy did, it
would not linrt him ranch. His popularity is as
wide as tbe State, and hisre-noniination is a fixed
fact. Any scheme in Doniphan Connty to trade
him off, will amount to about as much as the buzz
of amosqnitoin a thnnder-storm.
Jl-DCB Hl-Bbakd. Wo bad a brief rail, on Sat
urday, from Jnilge P. Hubbard, of. thisjudiclal
District. In tbisconnccfton, we take pleasure in
referring to the flattering encomiums which have
been bestowed npon the Judge throughout tbe

npon tbtf licnch befitting the place, and commands
the resnect and confidence of the bar and the
I public. His decisions are impartial and just, aud
no suspicion jjf corrupt motives lias ever at ladled
From the expressions which came up from ev
ery part of the District, the people seem to be
generally in iaor of his election to the office
which be now fills by appointment. From eery
County iu tbo District we bavo beard these ex
pressions; and if he is a candidate, there seems
to be no doubt of his snecrss. In fact, if there are
any other aspirants for the place, n e ha e not
yet heard of it.
13? Ono class of Republican papers in Kansas,
that nominally support Grant, keep np tbe cry
that Iho Republican party cannot sustain itself if
Pomeroy is recogirlzril as one of its leaders. An
other raise the same cry relative to Cabin ell. In
the meantime, Pomrruy and Caldwell are labor
ing for tbe election of Grant, and doing more good
than all the papers that are giving this left-hand-
cd support. Those papers are doing more to re
elect Pomeroy than all (what tbey call) bis sub
sidized organs. Pomeroy always stands squarely
np to tbe Republican party, in which respect he
is worth a ten acre lot fnll of the fellows w ho are
hungry tor his place, and w ho threaten the party
with destruction if their aspirations are not grat
ty Tbe treineudous stampedes of Republicans
to Greeley, that we read abont, arc something
like tbe milk-sickness used to bo iu Indiana.

Cy,The Topeka Smtage-Canr says that old
Chester Thomas can scent s victory further than
most men, and that be aaya Grant cannot be elec

Sid. Clarke for the past fonr or five years, and al

his mind wanders. When be-tacnabt Im areutrd

of the Satuagr-Corrr that he smelt.
tyThe Topeka Saniage-Stnfcr contains ac
counts of the stampede from Graut to Greeley, in

ty It is reported that C. K. Holliday, of Tope
ka, is willing to come out for Greeley, if the Lib

they will promise, and take him. He was a bla
tant Free State man, but tried to make Kansas
Democratic when tbe Republican party waa or
ganized. ty Col. J. T. Burris, of Johnson Connty, is an
otherGreelej accession that they blowover. We
wonder if he has signed the pledge, since he was
Speaker of the Honse of Representatives I If he
keeps himself in the same concHtiwn there, he will
be a heavy reinforcement to Greeley.

The Democratic Statu contentions and tbe

what they call "the failure" of General Grant.
If these persons would lie a little more explicit,

failed, their utterances would be, perhaps, a lit
tle more satisfactory to the people whooc vote

the venerable Judge John A. Wakefield has lwcn
granted a pension, and that the pension agent at
Topeka is ordered to pay the same. It will
revive the yonth of the old hero of the Black
Hawk war to receive this jnst recognition of
his services. Judge Wnkefield was ono of the
men who served in that war with the sainted
Lincoln. In all the relations of life be baslieen
a good man. He was one of the tmest Free
State men of Kansas, and his services will never
be forgotten. Laurence Tribune.

An antique adage says, "Old men for counsel,
young men for action." We hold a sign most
hopeful when we ace the joung men of the nation
putting themselves in working attitude with the
Republican party; the party of progress, of hu
tnauity and of patriotism, in. urging the re-election
of President Grant. We noticed, tbe fact
a few days since thata yoang men's radiralleague
hail been formed in this city. Now wo leant that
Albany, Troy, Rochester and ether places in this
aud neighboring States arc soon to, follow the
example of New York city. Young men are al
ways the most enthusiastic political workers aud
the most nnselflsh. Tbey serve a party from
consciencen, withont bone of other reward than
the triumph of right. Older men work nnder a
promise of repayment in office or jobs. Young
men fight for glory. In the tidal wa t of reform,
which In 1340 swept Van Bnrenandthe Democracy
from power, tbe yonng men took a prominent
part, their mass convention in 8yracnse in Sep
tember being the first display of that tremendnns
popular enthusiasm which carried General Wil
liani Henry Harrison into the Presidency.
So, too, in 1860, when Abraham Lincoln dis
placed the obi public functionary,-Jamea Buc
hanan, the brunt of the labor was assumed by
tbe yonng Rrpnblicans, who -nobly fought the
battle of liberty against governmental subser
viency to the "patriarchal iustution" of southern
slavery. "Wide;awakes''who,for tho most part,
had never voted for President, were largely in
strumental in eIecting"Mr. Lincoln. In the war
our patriotic youth 'were foremost and freest in
sacrilicing their ease and jeopardizing their Ines
in defense of the national life, taking withont
hesitation positions in the ranks, while their col
der, older brothers waited for commissions and
promise of advancement. Young men fought
with Grant in tbe west, and covered thrmsrhes
with glory. -They followed bis banner is Virginia,
and saw "the confederate colors lowered at Ap
pomattox. In lcXiS they testified their confidence
in the General whose sword let tho life ont of the
Confederacy bv giving him their votes. They
elected him President. Once agiiu they are
raarsluilliiTg for their favorite chief, forming
leagues and clubs to promote bis re-election, and
we see in this a double assurance of the success
of tbe Republican nominees in this campaign.
When the jonng men of tho nation aro all on one
side of a question, no prophetic ower is required
to foretell their triumph. We therefore bail the
yonng men's radical leagues. Their work and
their vote will re-elect Grant. Anr York Stan
dard. Out vok Grant. Tho Siear Torkcr Demolrat,
one of the ablest and most influential German
pa persiu this country, which has been torso tue time
inclining to Greeley, came out on Saturday last
for Grant, and in a leading editorial it says:
"Tho unexpected results of tho Cincinnati
Contention aud tho events following in its wake,
which were, fitlv crowned by the nomination of
nue of the founders and oldest leadtn of the Re
publican ;arty by the regular Democratic Na
tional Convention, and its ready mid zealous ad
vocacy by thesu adherents of Democracy who
hae forfeited all claims to public confidence,
liavo utterly destroyed all expectation and hopes
of a great national and truly Republican reform
party, and now, two months after the reform
inocnient, we are face to face with an entirely
different state of affairs. The Democratic party,
as snch, tries hard to get tontrul of national
affairs in a manner and through an instrument,
the noeltyof which justifies the apprehension
that there are serious dangers ahead. Under
these circumstanceswe cannot but deem it ineum
lient npon all adherents of tbe Republican party
to rally firmly and resolutely round the old party
flag, and to unite in supporting tbo Presidential
ticket nominated bv tbe regular Republican
Convention at Philadelphia."
An exchange says that an old Democrat, a dele
gate from Orange County, Iud., was M-eu leaning
against the wall of a bmldiiig a few minntes af
ter the adjournment of the Cincinnati contention,
weeping bitterly. When interrogated by a kind
hearted gentleman, who was passing, as to the
cause of bis trouble, asking at the same time if
lie conld serve him in any wav, the mortified and
deeply humiliated oldnian replied: "No, my good
man, von can't do mo no good. God knows I
wish I was dead: forfortv long years lebeen
vol in' the Demorratie'tickrt, and I've made an
nflidavy that I'd stand by tho party, and here
they've gone and passed orders to t oto for Horris
Greelev.and I' r got to do it or break my afliday f
And that ain't nil, mister; I've raised "nine sons,

a night reading Hendricks' aud other Democratic

to trarh 'em what an everlastin' old nigger

now they've all gone back on me, anil I've sot to
go homo tolheiu boys aivrt tell Via that their old
dad's been a lyin'tn them alibis life, and that
old Horris Greeley is one of tho Lord's anointed I"
And tbo lnr, deceived, and almost heart-brolTen
old man, bursting into tears again, trembling
with emotion, went his way, saving only: "This
is to much to bear; 1 believe it will snnly break

This is tho way tho Kuoxville Cimiete pnts
the case: "The men who are now at Baltimore
conspiring to defeat Grant, and talking aisHit the
despotism of the present administration, are the
men who, less than ten years ago, were sending
out detachments of reliel soldiers into cvrry nook
and coroner of East Tennessee, conscripting and
driving out Union men from their homes. Re
direction of these same men, the loyal people of
East Tennessee wen- forced, either to take up
anus in defense of a canse which tbey detested,
or to leave their homes and fico within Ihe Fed
eral lines for protection. Not only wrrc Union
men driven from their homes, hunted down with
blood hounds, and confined in luathsom prisons to
starve or die from disease, but their wives and
children were also mado to feel the iron heel of

Hon. Andrew Stew art, in the 8Jd year of his age.
Mr.Stewart was a native of FuvetteCoiintv. and
some years ago represented it and sister Counties
iu the National Congress for soum nine terms, or
eighteen years. His eminence as a statesman,
his lilwrality to the poor, his public spirit, his
social geniality, his patriotism, deserve a much
more extended notice than we have spare to puli
lish. Ho wasonoof onr old-time Stitesmei, and
his reputation, for forty years, has been a National
Gex. Banes. The correspondent who started
the story that Gen. N. P. Banks intended to sup
port the nomination of Greeley and Brown now
acknowledges that ho was mistaken. Gen. Hanks
himself says, in regard tothe mmor: "I have
never contemplated any change in my political
sentiments, and I have never for a moment bad
any idea of abandoning tbe Administration, and
any statement that may be made, to the contrary
was wholly nnanthonzed by nic" .Abuse, and
villificatinn of Gen. Banks by tbe Greeley organs
is now in order.
Sol. Miller lias removed bis While Cloud Cliff
to Trov. The paper will not hereafter lie so
cloudy in its politics and jokes. This is a Grant
movement to capture the Trojans with a wooden
horse. Troy Is the place where the tobacconist

He is a distant connection of the Cnitf.
