IfrSlTl OLOTJD, KANSAS:
VkiriiaT, : : : January t, !88l.
TjIe Disrjxio QuBsfiox. This U the
all-absorbing topic. Tho present in
dark honr in onr history, nml even those
Who hard herctoforo maintained nnshuk
M confidence in the strength nf the Un
ion, are becoming solicitous for its aafety.
Why is this ? Not hecatise South Car
olina and several other States are crying
OBt against the election of Lincoln, and
threatening to break np the Union ; for
all this was foreseen, and carefully con
ildered. Aided only by their own oxer
tions,.'tby conld -accomplish nothing
more than a temporary panic. But it is
because the proof has become so positive
and convincing that there is no- longer
room for doubt, of the complicity of the
Administration in the treacherous plot.
The safety of the country lies in the
President's bands, and be is in league
with thoio wha seek its ruin. The army
aid navy ru-o at bis command, yet be re
fuses to ttse tbem in defenco of the Con
titntion and laws. His confidential ad
visers aro traitors, and he is a tool in
tke'ir hands. A gallant band of soldiers
bos been compelled to abandon a United
States fortress to conspirators and trai
tors, and retroat from American soil, bo
uanse the President refuses to send need
ed reinforcements. The American flag
is insulted, and the flag of traitors waves
over buildings belonging to the United
States, vet the President is unconcerned !
A set of traitor commissioners aro sent
to Washington, to demand the
der of United States property, and the
President receives and confers with them,
as If they were tho accredited agents of a
ponorful and acknowledged nation 1
lius is not all. The public treasury
has been plundered in every quarter, for
the benefit of the Southern Disunionists.
A Disunion Secretary of War permitted
tho country to he swindled out of rail-
lions of money, in the Utah flour and mule
contracts, the Fort Snelling fraud, and
yet' was retained in office by tho Presi
dent, who knew of his criminality. A
Disunion Postmaster General retained
Postmaster Fowler in office, knowing
that he was a robber. A Disunion Sec
retary of tho Tieasnry emptied the na
tion's coffers, and then left them of his
own accord, else be still would Le there,
without so much as a rebuke from the
President. A Disunion Secretary of tho
Interior has just permitted Disunionists
to steal a million of dollars of tho Indi
an Trust funds, and tho Pi evident utters
not a word against it. The Government
funds have all gono into the hands of
traitors, and now the Secretary of War
is ordering the Government cannon and
other munitions of war to the South, to
fall into the hands of the enemies of the
Union. Still the President looks on
complacently, and utters not a word
If the President were faithful, disun
ion would be impossible ; but as he is a
perjured traitor, well may the friends of
the Union tumble. There is no longer
a doubt that an attack upon Washington
City.and tho assassination of Lincoln and
Hamlin are determined upon ; yet the
President will take no moasnres to pre
vent it.. Tho only means to prevent
bloodshed, and to save the Government,
is for the people to arise in their might,
and take the defence of the National Cap
itol upon themselves !
Buciujua's Ihiuhtialitt. When a
few starving and houseless settlers in
Kansas banded together to protect them
selves, and an imbecile Judge, besoming
frightened ata shadow, soamperedto Mis
souri and telegraphed that hundreds of
Abolitionists were after him, the President,
with no other evidence, ordered Gen. Har
ney post haste to the sceno oftlie disturb
ance, wi'h tho United States troops, to
conquer a peace. When traitors to the
Constitntion prepared to seize a United
states tort at (Juarleston, and the com
mander begged the President to send re
inforcements, when his constitntional ad'
risers givo it as their opinion that the
request should ba complied with, and
when the coxmandtr-in chief of the
United States armies declared that rein
forcements should be sent, Buchanan ob
stinately refused to send tho required aid.
for fear of offending the traitors I No
wonder people begin to think him insane,
It would be well for his honor if it were

from time to lime, of fossiliferon depos
its ; in fact, they do not express an opin-
fion as to whether they will ever disap
pear. Yet, in our day, foMis, are rap
idly disappearing, and other formations
taking uTeir place. .They have been
found in the political sphere, embracing
in its composition, tho layers called Fed

Old Buck is a fossil, brought from
deep down in the layer Federalism.
Long exposure to tho political atmos
phere is having its effect, and he is rap
idly crumbling to decay. He-will soon
disappear entirely, and his placo be snp-J
plied with a fine specimen of granite,
called "Old Abe."
Cass is a fossil, also found deep down
in the earlier formations, ne has with
stood exposure much better than Bnck,
and appear to have been of a more sub
stantial naTure. But he has disappeared,
and his .placo is occupied by a deposit of
guano, wnicii, nowever, win soon give
way to something more solid.
Judge Williams is an antediluvian
conch-shell, brought np from the very
foundations from the "old red sand
stone" of politics. He, too, is fast fall
ing to decay, and is being crushed ont by
tho " Montgomery" process.
sammedary is a tossil found nearer
the surface than those above described.
He originated in the layer Democracy,
and when first bronght to light, was found
lying ensconsed in " quasi quires." He
has disappeared, and in his place is now
found a specimen of "Beebe soap-stone."
Pettit is a fossil of the " hard crab'
species, likewise found in the layer De
mocraey. He retains his rotund propor
tions remarkably well, and it is thought
that he will be preserved in liqnor, and
bequeathed to tho people of Kansas as
long as he lasts.
The fossils found in the layers Nnllifi
cation, Slavery and Disunion, are moro
modern, and embrace numerous species,
6iich as " dough-faces, "dirt-eaters,"
" Union-savers," " pimps," " pap-suckers,"
cto. They, being imbedded in al
luvial deposits, were washed out by the
recent political flood which swept over
the conntry. The flood played havoc
with the ricketty politic il hovels scatter
ed over the broad faco of tho country,
and in the commotion, many have feared
that tho national foundations would be
undermined. But it is only the alluvium
and sand that is being removed ; after
which, more substantial political tenc
ments will bo founded upon the primitivo
rock of the Constitution.

secession are beginning to be felt at home,
Money is needed, and a forced loan of
8500,000 has been levied upon the plan

grumbling, or be considered and treated
as disaffected persons. This is bnt a
slight commencement. The people will
have to bleed until they are impoverish

our ears. Let them go. Ere long they
will come to their senses, and beg to be
received back and forgiven.

and Rus. will in a very short time start
below, to take their places in tho Terri
torial Legislature. Both of them are
youthful and inexperienced in Legislative
affairs, and a little fatherly advico from
one, the beard on whose upper lip is
whitened by the froU of no less tbon
thirty Winters, may cot be amiss. Then
hearken unto the voiceW wisdom :
Don't wear good clothes. If yon do,
people will set you down as being either
gamblers, kidnappers, or land specula
tors, intent upon some rascality. Re
spectable pople in Kansas don't wear
good , clothes. If you hare any such.
leave them with us before you go.
At your stopping places, don't tell
that yon are members of the Legislature.
If yon do, you will be required to pay in
advance, anu an me stiver ware in me
t 'it ., .t
house will be locked np at night. To be
sure, this will be no inconvenience to yon,
but then it would have a bad look to it.
Change sbiits only once a week, and
make one handkerchief serve yon through
the session. Washerwomen keep posted
in Legislative movements; and about the
last week of the session, 'yon will find that
two or. three shirts and handkerchiefs
have come' up missing. They my find
their way to "slop shops," to be retailed
ont to customers ; and you would feel a
little queer, at the Spring term of the
Court, to detect your private mark on a
shirt worn by Judge Pettit or Jim Line!
Get a bed that will hold two, and both
sleep together. Do not, under any cir
cumstances, sloep with anybody else, or
be may seduce you wo don't mean that
way ; but he may swcive'yon from your
duty. Ho will bore you almost to death
with his projects for the public good, of
which he expects to receivo none of the
benefits ; and you will suffer from los of
sleep. Or. when yon begin to doze, anil
become almost oblivious, you will mnko
all sorts of replies to his remarks. When
it comes to the pinch, he will hold yon
to tho promises yon mado in your sleep ;
and you, for your word's sake, will favor
his projects, although not believing them
to be right. It is dangerous to sleep
with people. Remember the affair of
Tyler and Botts.
Beware of oysters and champagne.
You will meet with hosts of kind friends,
who will insist npon treating yon to oys
ter suppers,, and at the same time will
discourse upon grand railroad or banking
projects, which cannot fail to make eve
rybody rich. And if yon should chance
to vote in favor of said projects, their
opponents would swear yon had been
bribed with the oysters and champagne.
If any man offers to treat you, lake it as
an insult, and knock him down.
Do not accept certificates of shares in
embryo cities, which their liberal propri
etors may offer ,to you gratuitously. It
looks suspicions to see members of the
Legislature come home with their pock
ets full of share certificates; and besides,
yon will have to pay tax on them.
Dodge every vote npon local qnestions,
sueh as railroads. County Seat, etc. If
yon don't, the very first time yon are np
for the office of Overseer of the Poor or
Dog-Pelter, you will see your votes pa
raded as overwhelming evidence that you
are an enemy to the interests of Snipegnt
or Polecat's Paradise.
Advocate the abolition of taxe. and
the giving of every man a farm, with a
house and other improvements placed
thereon at the expense of tho Territory.
If you do, yon will have a host of friends
to advocate your claims for Congress.
Don't present any divorce bills. As
snre as yon do, the community will de
clare that yon want to marry the grass
widow; and then if yon don't do it, they
will circulate slanderous reportB abont
Abstain from slap-jacks and sorghum.
They will corrupt yonr morals forever,
and their influence will be observable in
every Bpeech yon make. You not long
aince witnessed a melancholy instaneo of
the kind yourselves.
Fail not to take a plentiful supply of
fine-tooth combs, snlphur, and red pre
cipitate ; for if one-tenth part of the sto
ries which were circulated about tho
members pending their election were true,
before you havo associated with them
three days, you will be lousy and have
the itch !
Petitions are being circulated
throughout the Connty for signatnres,
praying the Legislature to pass an act
submitting the location of tho County
Seat to the vote of the people. Indi
vidually, we can see no benefit to arise
from such a thing, but it will cause al
most interminable strife and dissensions.
Whatever we may have thought at ono
time, we now think, taking everything
into consideration, that the County Seat
had better remain where it is. There are
several aspirants for the honor, but the
success of neither of them conld benefit
the upper end of the Connty.
Onr Territorial Legislature meets
on next Monday provided Kansas it
not admitted this week. We don't wish
those members to ba disappointed, who
have planned out the wonderful things
they mean to do but we hope they'll
be disappointed ! Kansas want in.

Ma. Editor: I find, in my travels through
the country, that the great subject of discussion
is the dissolution of the Union. The passage
of the Secession Ordinance by the South Caro
tins Convention, is looked upon as In itself a
harmless thing! bnt the enti,ent of the peo
ple generally is, that there can be no such thing
as peaceable secession of any of the State, and
should South Carolina interfere with the laws
or property of the General Government, then
force must be used to bring her into subjection.
I hare but little doubt that there will be a col
lision before long, acd blood will be shed. That
SUtaJua now-gone to far that aha will ool-b
inclined to rtcede, and war seems inevitable.
Thoe Southern fire-eaters appear perfectly in
fatuated. They talk of starving out the North,
and yctare sending large orders to Cincinnati
and other points for bacon and flour, and want
credit, at that. A large nroportionof thepro
risions needed for the Seceding Convention at
Columbia, S. C, were obtained, Tarn informed,
at Chicago. That looks like starring ont the
North with a vengeance.' The feelia; of the
people all through the conntry, I find, is increa
sing against any movement of secession.
Respectfully Yours, 4c,

Another Break. John B. Floyd,
Secretary of War, ha withdrawn from
the Cabinet, because .Buchanan would not

only wonder is, that the President did

Bnck let him slide, a mnch as if to say
"Well, if 1 can t do anytningA mean
enough to suit yon, and yon have stolen
enough, and won't stay any longer, I guess
you'll have to go."
It is rumored that the Secretary of the
Interior, Thompson, and the new Secre
tary of the Treasury, Thomaa, threatened
to qnit from the same cause; but Thomp
son is prevented by the difficulty which
the Indian Trust Fund swindle has gotten
him into. The Cabinet is rotten, and
falls to decay even as its burial day ap

DR. H'LANE'S VERMIFUGE,
PREPARED BY FLEMING BROS. OF
O During a practice of more than twenty
years,Dr. M'Lane had attended innumarable
patients afflicted with every form of worm dis
ease, and was induced to apply all the energies
of his mind to the discovery of a vermifuge, or
worm destroyer, certain in iu effects; the result
of his labors is the American Worm Specific,
now before the public, prepared by Fleming
Bros , of Pittsburg, which is perfectly safe, and
may be given aliko to children of the most ten
der age, or to the aged adult; it purges mildly
and subdues fever, and destroys worms with
invariable success. It is easy of Administra
tion, and as it does not contain mercury in any
form whatever, no restrictions are necessary
with regard to drinking cold water, nor is It ca
pable ef doing the least injury to the tenderest
infant. An incredible number of worms have
been expelled by this great vermifuge.
