On Friday evening last, upon brief
notice, a largo nnmber of Republicans
assembled in this place, for the purpose
of organizing a Wide-Awake CInb. Af
ter appointing Committees and forming
a Glee CInb, the meeting adjourned to
Upon the latter evening, a large crowd
assembled. There wero about a hundred
men present, and nearly every one a legal
voter of this Township a large majority
of them belonging to this precinct. It
was the best, most enthusiastic, and at
the same time one of the most orderly
meetings, that we have witnessed in Kan
as. Several gentlemen from other parts
of the County were present to participate
In the proceedings. Able and telling
speeches were made by T. P. Herrick, of
Highland, Mr. Price, onr candidate for
the Conncil, and Mr. Davis, of Troy.
Tho speakers wore frequently interrupted
by rounds of applause. Several gentle
men from Troy, (complimented by the
Dispatch with tbo namo of tbo " Skillet-
Heads,") sang a couple of their rich
songs, composed for tho special edifica
tion of the Democracy of this County.
Our Glee CInb also sang a number of
good sones, in the very best style. Wo
think we may justly claim that ours is
the Glee Club of Kansas. Before tho
meeting adjourned, a large number of
names wero enrolled on the list of Wide
Awakes. The meeting was a decided success,
and stirred up tho pcoplo to a sense of the
importance of the coming election. Much
good was accomplished, and tho way
paved for much more. Let the meetings
be kept np, and let ns leave nothing nn
dono to send up a good report on election
day, for the whole ticket. The Club meets
again, on Friday evening.
By no means the least interesting fea
ture of the evening, was the Wide-Awake
Ball at the City Hotel, after the adjourn
ment of the meeting. The ladies wore
beautiful and tasteful sashes of red, white
and blue, bearing the names of Lincoln
and Hamlin, and the name of the native
or adopted State of the wearer. There
were also several Bell and Everett sashes
present (It is worthy of mention, that
every young lady and young married
woman of White Clond is either for
Lincoln or Bell.) Among the States
represented, we noticed the names of
Massachusetts. New York, Pennsylvania,
Virginia, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Wis
consin, Missouri, and Kansas. The dan
cing was kept up until a late hour, and
the general expression is, that it was the
most pleasant dance ever held in White

' We have recieved the Cosmopoli
tan Art Journal, for the September Quar
ter, 1860. This work is a masterpiece
in the way of fine engravings, choice lit
erature, and beautiful mechanical execu
tion. There is nothing about it roughly
done or botched, but everything about it
proclaims it to be an Art Journal indeed.
It is published by the Cosmopolitan Art
Association, 548, Broadway, New York,
once every three months. The price is 82
a year. For 83, persons are entitled to
the Journal for one year; four admissions
to the Galleries of Art, 548 Broadway,

in tho Association, entitling the holder to
the superb Steel Plato Engraving

The Democrats' of Brown Coun
ty met at Hiawatha, on Saturday last,
and nominated a ticket As a matter of
course, they do not expect to elect it by
the votes of the baker's dozen of Demo
crats in the County ; bnt they calculate
largely upon local prejudices. "It's no
use knocking at the door."
Onio Democracy, ix the Past. De
mocracy in Ohio, and in the North gen
erally, has changed somewhat within a
few years past. The article which fol
lows, we clip from a Free Soil paper pub
lished at Toledo, Ohio, in the year 1849,
which paper takes it from the Lower
Sandusky Democrat, and publishss it,
with a commendatory preface. If the
Sandusky paper is still in existence, we
would like to know how it stands, po
litically.now. It should be borne in mind,
that the sentiments were published about
those days when the Ohio Democracy re
solved, in State Convention assembled,
that they wonld oppose Slavery nntil it
should be "finally eradicated;" and when
they carried the sentiment into practice,
by electing Salmon P. Chase to the
United States Senate, thus bringing him
into notoriety, and placing him in a po
sition whero ho has never coased to strive
for the carrying ont of that Democratic
Resolution. Bnt to the extract :
Onio Democracy. Whatever faults
are justly chargeable to the Ohio Democ
racy, want of energy, and boldness in
advocating the opinions they have avow
ed, is not among them. The following
from the Lower Sandusky Democrat,
published in the strongest Democratic
county in this senatorial .District, snows
with what energy and ability, they are
supporting the cause of Freedom:
Tns Prospect. Never were the pros
pects of tho Democratic party brighter
than at the present time. Union and
harmony are again among us, and the
party is everywhere throughout the North,
planting itself impregnably upon a posi
tion as firm and enduring as tho everlas
ting hills. Connecticut is democratic.
We look with confidence to seeing old
Massachusetts, the former cradle of Lib
erty, ranging herself along eiile, where
with Connecticut repose the unvanqnisb
able democratic hosts of Maine and New
Hampshire. New York is still cursed
with Croswcll, and his unprincipled ban
king, pro-slavery hordes but they are
nearly shorn of their power for evil.
By uniting with their Taylorite, pro-slavery
brethren they have defeated ns in
New York City recently, which is prob
ably tho last victory they can ever attain
over the radical democracy of the Em
pire State. The west, the yonng, the
fresh, the glorious west presents one un
broken democratic -phalanx, and is glow
ing with irrepressible ardor for the con
test 1852 of when she may have an oppor
tunity to meet the minions of- slavery,
and scatter them as the chaff, before the
bannerfof freedom borne aloft by the stal
wart arm of a Benton or some other rep
resentative of "Free Soil and Free La
bor." "Free Soil and Freo Labor 1" Is it
not a glorious War cry 1 One which
Hushes tbo brow, tires the heart, nerves
tho arm of every patriot and philanthro
pist ? Who shall dare stand before it ?
Wo have long felt and often said, that
tho freo soil anti-slavery platform, was
the ono upon which tho Democratic par
ty would and must 6tand. A necessity
of its nature, no less than the conserva
tive spirit always leads tho whigs invari
ably to cling to old abuses and resist
progress and innovation npon estab
lisbed usages and thingsvhas forced the
democratic party upon tne ngni grouna
with a rapidity almost astounding. For
this we rejoice. There is no earthy pow
er which can now resist tho onward, up
ward course of the Northern democracy.
And when the organization of our party
shall be thoroughly perfected, it will be
as beautiful in proportions as luomas
Jefferson's theory of equality, and as in
vinciblo as Andrew Jackson.

The above works, which aro advertised
in another part of our paper, are decid
edly the host books of their class that
have ever come under our notice. The
publisher aiming to meet the wants of
the million, and to snpply them with
books not of transient interest, bnt, of
real and permanent value, has spared no
expense in the getting np of these works,
tho necessity for which are of constant
recurrence in "everybody's" business and
family. By the aid of judicious adver
tising they have already reached an enor
mous sale, and are now being anxiously
sought for in every part of our land.
"Everybody's Lawyer," By Frank
Crosby, Esq., of the Philadelphia Bar,
is a handsome 12mo. volume, contain
ing 384 pages, beautifully printed and il
lustrated. It gives full and complete
forms, with directions and advice not on
ly reliable, bnt written in so clear and
distinct a style that It is hardly possible
for a misunderstanding to occur. There
is scarcely any business contingency that
it is not fully calculated to meet. It is
equally adapted to all the States, and no
one who consults its pages with care, can
fail to become well posted in the laws of
his country. We advise "Everybody1
to buy it, for "Everybody" says it is a
great book, and so say we.
"The Familt Doctor," by Prof. Hen
ry S. Taylor, contains simple remedies
easily obtained for the cure of Disease in
all forms. The great charm of this work
also, is its complete simplicity, and the
entire absence of all medical technicali
ties. It is appropriately illustrated, and
gotten up in excellent style, and like the
other, shonld be in "Everybody's" hands.

Most glorious news comes to us, this
week. In Pennsylvania, Ohio and Indi
ana, the Democijcy are literally tmathtd.
The Republican majorities may be set
In Pennsylvania, tho fusion wouldn't
work. Curtin is elected Governor by an
overwhelming majority ; nearly all the
Congressmen are Republicans ; and thej
Legislature is Republican, which insures
a Republican United States Senator, in
place of Bigler.
In Ohio, the Douglasites, Breckites
and Bellites fused to defeat Judge Brin-
kerhoff, upon the charge of negro equali
ty, but are annihilated. We regret that
the Doughfaces, Yallandigham, Pendle
ton, Cox andAUon, are reelected, al
though by very small majorities; but we
doubt not it was dono by pipe-laying.
The Congressional delegation will prob
ably stand as at presont.
In Indiana, notwithstanding the offi
cious intermeddling of John J. Critten
den and tho Bell "party of Kentucky, to
induce the Bell men of Indiana to vote
the Democratic ticket, the gallant Henry
S. Lane is triumphantly elected Govern
or, and tho Republicans have probably
gained several members of Congress.
The Legislature is also Republican, which
secures a United States Senator in place
of Fitch, and a re-apportionment of the
State, which will send Bright adrift,
when his term expires.
Douglas had just completed a stump
ing tour of these three States. He is now
in Illinois, where tho result of his labors
will be shown in November.
The Presidential contest may be said
to be now practically decided. Old Abe
is hound to go in, by such a majority as
was never dreamed of by his warmest
supporters. It will be so overwhelming,
that it will be useless to count the rote
against him. In fact, what few are cast
against him, will be by persons who vote
merely for the namo of the thing. He
will sweep every Free State and the
Union will not be dissolved I
AKassai Court Scene. A rich
scene transpired in Court, in our neigh
boring County of Brown, a short time
since, the like of which cannot be found
in the Reports. One Clark was under
going a trial npon the charge of resisting
the officers of the law in the performance
of their duty. The lawyer for the pros
ecution was in the midst of his speech,
and was very severe npon the prisoner.
He at length made some assertion,
when the prisoner exclaimed: "You're
s d d liar I" The prosecutor immedi.
ately stopped speaking, and made a lunge
at the prisoner. The latter sprang ont
at the door, and streaked it around the
Court House, the prosecutor in pursuit.
So they had it round and round, the dis
tance between them remaining abont ten
feet, and neither one appearing to gain.
The spectators stood watching the result
with breathless interest, no one saying a
word, with the exception of a Methodist
preacher, who could hold in no longer,
but yelled to the pursuer : "Hit him in
the ribs I Hit him in the ribs I" But the
prosecutor, not having the requisite
length of arm for that business, did not
hit him in the ribs, and was finally forc
ed to give np the fruitless chase. We
believe that was the last of the trial I -1

A Pow-wow. The Democrats of Iowa
Point held a fandango in this place, on
Tuesday evening, for the benefit of their
forlorn brethren up here. Wo saw only
tho commencement of tho performance.
A small crowd (principally Indians) was
collected around a bonfire in the street,
alternately trying to yell and imbibing a
liquid substance from ominous looking
bottles. When the liquid gave out, the
enthusiasm of the breech-clout portion of
the audience subsided. During these
preliminary efforts to get np steam, three
cheers were proposed for the Devil !
Later in the evening, several wagon
loads of Democrats came in from Iowa
Point, making the crowd large enough to
hold a meeting, which they proceeded to
do. The ceremonies were affecting in the
extreme. Charley Blakely told how he
loved White Cloud ; and a susceptible
young man formally embraced Democra
cy, (which operation he has performed at
least once a month for the last two years,)
in a spread-eagle speech, telling bow he
loved the memory of Henry Clay, and
therefore would vote the Democratic tick
et 1 The various speeches should not be
lost to the world. We believe they would
do a great deal of good, if they were all
printed in the papers and the papers
tied over the tops of apple-butter crocks!
We understand that almost 150 names
were enrolled. This number was obtain
ed by each person present putting down
his own name, together with the names
of all his grandfathers, great-grandfathers,
cousins, aunts, and dead relatives; be
sides the names of all the Indians in the
Iowa tribe. (Mm. Said aunts, dead
relatives, Indians, etc., can't vote.) But
while the unterrified appeared to enjoj
themselves hugely, their pow-wow was
productive of much suffering. It was
sod-corn whiskey that suffered !
Seriously speaking, if the Democracy
enjoyed their meeting, no one onght to
envy them the pleasure. We hope that
every time the Republicans meet, the
Pro-SIaveryites will have just such a ga
thering. Nothing better could be desir
ed, than that sensible men might look at
the two crowds, contrast them, draw their
own conclusions, and choose their pirty.
Six Horses Stolen. We learn that
Mr. George Shaw, lately removed from
Iowa, into Holt county, near Jackson's
Point, had six horses stolen out of his
stable last Saturday night. The thioves
we learn, wero on their way to cross the
Missouri at White Cloud, K. T., where
the horses, or somo of them were recov
ered by the citizens of White Clond, but
refused to give them up to the owner or
tell who tho thieves were unless the re
ward 850, was increased to 885 or more.
Considerable excitement prevailed in and
around Jackson's Point, on Tuesday and
Wednesday lost. It is supposed that the
thieves were Indians, as moccasin tracks
were discovered in the horse lot. Rock
The Heral Julias given the people of
White Clond a very bad name, and wo
request of it to make a correction of its
statement. Thore were only three horses
stolen; the Indian thieves swam them
across the river, some five miles above
this place, and took them to their vil
lage. Major Vanderslice, the Indian
Agent, discovered and took possession of
the horses, and sent us an advertisement
relating the facts ; but before the paper
was issued, a party came in search of the
horses. We believe a citizen of White
Cloud informed the owner of the where
abouts of the horses, and received the re
ward of 850 which had been offered. The
party was very large, and their ferriage
bill amounted to a considerable sum.
They likewise took supper at one of onr
hotels, which also ran up the cost. No
person interested in or connected with
White Cloud had anything to do with
the horses, and they were-never here un
til the owner brought them, on his re
turn to Missouri ; therefore, the citizens
of White Cloud had not a word to say
about giving up the animals. The own
er paid the reward, as he had offered it,
of his own accord ; and as to ferriage
and suppers, we presume the Herald will
not call it imposition for men to receive
reasonable compensation in the transac
tions of their legitimate business.
Fck Ajtoao the Lawyers. We learn
that the "Granite Bard" visited Troy,
during the sitting of Court, last week,
and gave one of his Concerts, which was'
well patronized by the lawyers and oth
ers. Daring the performance, he was
subjected to all manner of ridicule by the
audience, bnt he evidently regarded it in
in the light of applause I At the
close, when the crowd was about
to disperse, Judge Kingman arose and
said that, before the audience dispersed,
he wished to offer a resolution. Order
was restored, and all hands were proba
bly looking for a resolution of thanks,
when the Jndge said :
"Resolved, That Captain Heed be ar
rested, and prevented from leaving the
room, lest he shonld ran away with all
that music I"
.The house cane down.
vW At the Democratic pow-wow, on
Tuesday evening, Blakely was one of the
speakers. Ha said that he had bitterly
opposed White Cloud in 'everything she
undertook, in times past, bnt that he
dearly loved her now 1 Does be think
he can fool anybody with such gammon?
After the election, probably he won't lore
her quite so well ; or, if he dos, he will
discover that, the admiration is not mu
A Democratic Orator One of the
orators, at the Democratic pow-wow, on
Tuesday evening, was Squire Taylor
not our fellow citizen, Squire Taylor, for
he claims to be a Free State Democrat,
which kind of Democrats have been ex
communicated by the 81aveites, as un
sound ; and besides, we doubt not he
would be ashamed to be caught in suth a
crowd as that was but we mean A. Tay
lor of Iowa Point. He is about as fit for
an orator as an ox is for a tooth plogger.
He indulged in such murderous expres
sions as this : "Let us take a retrospective
glance hack into futurity a few years
hence !" But we wish to refer to acer-
tain charge which he made against the
Republicans to wit: that all the drunk
ards and black-legs belonged to the Re
publican party 1 To disprove this asser
tion, as to drunkards, he had only to look
upon the crowd around him; and as for
black-legs, he had better scan the Demo
cratic ticket, and see whether that is clear
of them. We know of three or fonr pro
fessional gamblers and tbeives "not far
abont here," who are closely watched
by the officers of the law, to get some
proof against them, when they will be
properly attended to. They are brawling
Democrats, yet members of their own
party have no hesitancy to calling them
thieves. We have no doubt that they
were present, and assisted in applauding
Squire Taylor, when be made the asser
that all the drunkards and black-legs be-
longed to the Repblican party 1
Kidnappers CAuanr. The three kid
nappers of the negroes in Iowa, which
we mentioned lost week, passed up on the
Spread Eagle, on Saturday, in irons and
in charge of officers. Two of the ne
groes were also along. We learn that
they were caught in St. Louis. We have
no doubt they were scoundrels who made
a regular business of kidnapping free ne
groes, and selling them in the South.
They will have a happy time, whan they
get to Iowa, as the State will doubtless
require their services for a term of years.
We also learn that the Sheriff of Potta
watomie County, Iowa, came to Oregon,
last week, to procure the release of the
negro confined in the jail at that place,
He obtained a new hearing, before Judge
Williams, who ordered the negro to be
discharged. Judge Williams has thns
shown himself to be an honest, indepen
dent and unprejudiced roan, who cannot
be swerved from right and duty by the
bluster of hot-headed bigots.
"Swaf." We have it from a reliable
source, that Charley Blakely approached
a Republican candidate in the lower part
of the Connty, with a proposition to trade
off votes with him, bnt the offer was em
phatically rejected. Democratic candi
dates, do yon hear that f Blakeley is
working hard for the ticket, ain't he ?
What does he core for the rest of yon?
He would trade every one of you off, and
defeat, you if he could thereby secure his
own election. He will trade either of vou
off, to suit the locality. At Geary City,
he will sell Wood ; at Doniphan, Gab
bert or Word will have to suffer ; at Pa
lermo, Markham catches it ; and at
White Cloud, Griffith or Benight is sac
rificed: provided, always, that he can get
the Republican candidates to bite. Wo
are happy to say that he has as yet met
with no success, but it is no fault of his.
Democratic candidates, work hard for
Blakely; he is helping the ticket like
the old woman kept tavern in Michigan !
KW By the way "sod-corn" has suf
fered, within a short time past, we judge
that those forty dollars have abon trun ont;
and the election is not yet at hand, and
no Blakely votes have been gained.
Charley, send up about sixty dollars
more ; if that don't buy all the votes, it
will have to be given up as a bad job.
About sixty dollars more, Charley, as
yon love White Cloud I Rather than
have you miss buying the votes, we'll try
and worry along without that new suit of
clothes. About sixty dollars more!

elections for the Democracy in the States
of New York, New Jersey and Pennsyl

that every dollar of it is to be used in the
State of Pennsylvania to promote the

his election in October will insnre the
defeat of Mr. Lincoln in November, and
throw tbe election into the House. Tbe
