"Aw iKFosmo. Post Offices are rap
posed to' hare been established for the ac-
eoramod'ition of the people; bot tbe Iowa
Point Post Office is used for tbe advan
tage of a few ruffian. A friend informs
w thst a Democrat of Iowa Point (a
ro'minent actor in tbe row on election
day,) told him, a, few daya before tbe
election, tbat all tbe copies ot tbe Chief
ef October 25th. containing some pasea
fee in the life of Blakely, that were sent
to Iowa 'Point, were either destroyed or
cabbaged from the Port Office, and tbat
a'copy.conld not be found. Complaint
from onr subscribers at that office are al
nost incessant ; and several hare order
ed their papers sent to Highland, that
they may receive them regularly. This
fa scandalous. The Iowa Point Post
Office is in the hands either of A. Taylor
J. A. Farrall. The latter is a young
man, who, we think, aims to do what is
right, and therefore we cainot think he
is the'enlprit A. Taylor, in onr opin
ion, will do joitaa bis muter command.
He is the Postmaster, and he is reeponei-

Boftocn Rorm Thhbats. We are
informed, daily, tbat terrible threat are
made against us by the Pro-SIaveryite,
for articles published daring the County
emvass,2- particularly those against Blake
ly? , A Democratic friend has warned us
that he has it from Pro-Blaverjjtes, that
we are to be "put through" in every
manner possible, whenever we are caught
in a favorable position. A person who
came from Atchuon Oounty, on Monday,
tells us that heluard it below Troy, that
the Democrats intended to lynch us, on
election day I
Now, we do not donbt the disposition
of the Democracy to carry these threats
into execution, hot we are sot to be do
terred by .them. We have published not
a.word, in the matters in question, but
what'we have reason to believe was true:
and when we know of reasons why men
aboard not be entrusted with office, we
shall say so, in plain and unvarnished
language. As for the threat tbat we mnst
retract certain charges, we have to suggest
that we sever learned that part of the bn
sin, particularly when we believe the
charges to be true. Tne only way to si
leoce us, will be to destroy our office or
'.'put out our chunk!" Threats won't do
it we are used to them.

good work they did, -on Tuesday. It
ia the Home of Blakely, aad every string
was pulled ia his favor ; yet he leaves
the Township with S3 majority, when
he expected at least 100. This stronghold
of Pro-Slavery Democracy is gradually
coming around right, aad in a short time
will roll up a majority far the true faith.

Mr. Markham received a number of Be
publican votwupoa personal grounds ;
but aside from tbis.'.the Republican vo
ted well.
Highland has done nobly. Fears were
entertained for her. Since the previous
election, a large number of Republicans
bad left the neighborhood, and Demo
crats had come in ; it was thought that
there would be no effort to get out the
vote ; and in some quarters, it was sus
pected that those who did vote would not
stick to the ticket well yet she has giv
en a good majority very good, nnder the
circumstances' and vindicated herself
against the suspicions of those who dis
trusted the fidelity of her Republican
voters.
At Iowa Point, tbe Republicans polled
a mnch better vote than was expected of
ber and they did this in the face of ruffi
anism and mobocracy of tbe most una
dulterated stamp. When it is known
tbat to be a Republican in Iowa Point,
makes a man a mark for persecution, po
litically, socially, and in business af
fair, all will acknowledge that our tick
et did well in that precinct.
We know of but one solitary Republican
above Iowa Point who remained away
from the polls, and not one Democrat.
It was the closest votjng ever done in the
Township ; and we think, with an en
tire vote, leaving oat tbe bogus vote tbat
are smuggled in, the Democracy honestly
have 20 majority in the Township. Tbe

It may b tbat many of oar readers
looked upon oar asasrtioae, dariaf the
campaign, that the Doaiphaa Cooaty
Democracy were, the identical Border
Ruffians of 1856. aad vara the same ia
disposition aow aa they were thea, at
electioneering appliances, iateaded to af
fect tba votes of saw iadiaed to Democ
racy, but still more irmly inclined to
ward law aad ardor. Now that the bat
tle ia over, wa repeat that onr assertions
wen trae ; aad, coatrary to oar anticipa
tions, the proceedings at Iowa Point, on
tbe day of tba election, fally demonstra
ted that we did aot misrepresent the De
mocracy. The mobocracy and outrages,
upon that day, would hara done honor
to the palmiest days of Border Ruffian-
urn.
Early ia tbe day, a drunken Democrat
was charging abont the streets with a re
volver in-one hand aad a cane in the oth
er, heaping tbe foulest abuses upon every
Republican be met. William Hedrick
appeared to be the principal object of
Democratic hatred. The drunken man
declared that he was a slaveholder, and
had killed sevaral men in M i J
if anybody would show him that d d
Abolition:, Bill Hedrick, he would kill
him. He presently discovered Hedrick,
thrust his revolver in his face, and beat
him over the back with his cane. Hed
rick got out of bis way, but the fellow
was not satisfied. Some time afterward,
he approached Hedrick again, in a men
acing manner, while the latter was sitting
down. As the fellow approached, Hed
rick seized the piston-rod of an engine
pump, which lay close at hand, and dealt
him several tremendous blows over the
head, bringing him to the ground. At
this, a general rush of more than a hun
dred men was made toward Hedrick, with
the cry of "shoot him 1" "kill the d d
rascal I" He retreated into a store, but
was followed by tbe crowd, overpowered,
stamped and beaten in a shocking man
ner. A peaceable man named Simpson, a
neighbor of Hedrick interfered in hi
behalf, but was knocked down and beaten
with brick-bate until the crowd were tir
ed with tbe work ; and a large flesh-fork
was run through his nose, said to have
been done by a boy. Simpson was per
mitted to get up and start off, when a
crowd followed again, but were by some
means prevented from inflicting further
injuries upon him.
A young man named Sponseller, also
one of Hedrick' neighbors, was at
tacked by the mob, but broke out of the
crowd and ran for his life. He was fol
lowed by a unprincipled doggery keeper
named Tracy, a mere boy, who kept
shooting at him with a revolver as be
run, but not hitting him. A miserable
wretch named Jim Poteet, seized a rifle,
and galloped after Sponseller, threaten
ing to kill him before he returned: Ia
a short time he came back, intimating
that he had done something with Spon
seller; but whether he injured him or not,
we have not heard.
At this juncture, some one appealed to
BIakely,.as tbe leader of the Democratic
party, to quiet the mob, which he set
himself about doing, and finally succee
ded. The extent of the injuries of Hed
rick and Simpson, and the fate of Spon
seller, axe not known ; but a committee
of Republicans has been appointed to
visit their homes, and ascertain.
This mob cannot be claimed as tbe re
sult of excitement or drunkenness, al
though the originator of it was drunk ;

the dsy of election,, it was hinted in va-
rioua quarter, mat tnsre was to be a
muss. An old Republican of this Town
ship walked from Atchison Connty, in
order to vote. On Mondsy night he
stopped in the vicinity of Syracuse, at a
Democratic house, where he was inform
ed that the Republicans were to be
"cleaned out," at Iowa Point, on Tues
day. Tbe row was preconcerted, and
was but an outburst of tba old Border
Ruffian spirit.
Since the above was in type, we learn
tbat tbe flesh-fork story was a hoax ; but
that ths balance of onr account is not
quite as bad as the reality.
i m
j9" We have often heard it said that
a considerable quantity of whiskey, taken
internally, h'ss the effect of making the
recipient see double ; but wa are indined
to the opinion that' " Blakely sod-corn"
quadruples tba visioa of the patriotic
Democracy. For 'instance, the White
Cloud correspondent of the Dispatch, told
the public that 120 voters registered their
names at the pow-wow ia this pi
But little over oao-fourtb that aumher of
votes were cast for the Demoeratie ticket
here. We can aecoaat for this upoa'ao
other principle thaa that the person who
counted tbe names oa the list, had his
visioa quadrupled by eopioas potatiaae
of said sod-corn.
It is rumored among the " faith
fol," tbat we are to ha prosecuted for li
bel, for certain statements made during
. - i .
tbe campaign. That begin to sound in
teresting. Let thsmf squirt their dye-
stuff: we shall be hat too happy to be
the mesas of setting eertaia characters ia
their true light before tba coaatry. The
longer a critical kvsstigatioa iato tbe
early transactions ia Kansas is delayed,
the more difficult it win be to get at the
facts ; and there k aa hatter way of pre-
ing them thaa by spreading them
upon the rtrordt of oar Gears.
"Wasted to Boat 8ol-Mnxan."
Such was the song of the Blakdyites,
from the day of his nomination nntil the
cloee of tba polls. BIsksly expressed
great concern lest the Chief should not
be circulated throughout the Connty, as
be expected to derive mnch benefit from
its oppoeition to him. He sent ns word,
thst if be had any money to spead in the
canvass, he could pnt it toa better pur
pose thsn baying whiskey that he would

sideration of the great service we were
doing him by our opposition. On elec
tion dsy, some of his over-confident
friends congratulated us upon the benefit
we had been to him ; and on the same
day, we are told, Blakely himself declar
ed that he wanted to be elected, if for
nothing elao tbsn to beat Sol. Miller.
They were going to have rare sport

3T The Democracy of this Town
ship, confident of victory, had made pre
parations for high carrying on. On
Wednesday evening, after the news of
Blakely's election was received, they
meant to make their cannon do some loud
talking they would fire it from the top
of the highest bluff ia Iowa Point, so
that tbe whole country around could hear
tbe glad tidings. We listened attentive
ly, on Wednesday evening, bat didn't
hear that cannon. What was the mat
ter, boys? As it rained all day Wednes

could not repress their malignant feelings.

that tbe Republicans of other precincts
should not trsde off any of the candidates,
they have done worse voted for a Dem

TREASON IX RIOB PLACES.
A New York correspondent says that
Mr. R. J. Lackey, late of tbe lreasury
Department, who wa removed on sns
picion of Lincolniam, ha revealed a plan
entered into bv high official for a disso
lution of the Union. Mr. Lackey ays
the plan was tbat the Governor, of the
Southern State should convene their
Legislatures on the 8th of November, and
as soon aa Lincoln election wa ascer
tained. the Legislatures were to declare
the Union dissolved, and pronounce in
favor of Breckinridge as President of the
Southern Confederacy. The same cor
respondent charges Cobb with being i
party to the scheme, wtyich seems to be
confirmed by the fact that Cobb, when in
Georgia recently, avowed Dimwit favor
able to a dissolution in cuo Lincoln wa
chosen.
EISSOUmOH IHSISTBD UPOH.
The Constitution newspaper ia aid to
be entirely in the hands of the Southern
members of the Cabinet. The Northern
members do not interfere, neither doe
the President ; and hence, under tbe gui
dance of Cobb and Thompson, the Gov
ernment organ, day after day, predicts
dissolution in case ot Lincoln election
It is rumored here that secret agent, well
supplied with money, are traveling South
aiirrmg up tne aisnnion leeung. it is
alio aaid that the visit of Cobb and
Thompson to New York ha preference
to the .withdrawal of the fuadrfrOm
the Snbtreasury, in cue of Lincoln'
election.
The Blce Cockadk. We have be
fore stated that Minute Companies are
formed in South Carolina, who mount
the blue cockade. This is not the fir6t
time cockades hsve been mounted in this
country for partisan purposs. In 1798,
the Federal party mounted the black
cockade in Philadelphia and other places.
In three years more the federal party re
ceived ite death blow, and the reign of
black cockades was over. In less than
that time the blue cockade will share the
me fate. The cockade party may live
long enongh to hold another Hartford or
Nashville Convention, but hardly that.
Their doom is fixed. They, like the old
federalists, mil call themselves tbe no
bleat party on earth, think they know all
abont the Constitution, make a little
more noise, and sputter out tbe ambi
tion part taking office from the hands of
the Republican.
