It seems like crying oter spilt milk, to
at about accounting for "the nnu of a
thing that it oyer and dose with, and cn
deavoring;,to show bow, it might hare
been prevented; bnt ire bare often thonght
that it would be tome satisfaction even to

may not be amiss to refer to some things
in which tbe Aati-Lane party -missed it,
in tbeeampaigB just closed, and thus fail
ed jifjuccfss. .The principal cause was
doubtless that too many votes were cast
oy fteoppbeite side.' This result might
noVhave'been changed by any different
policy in the campaign, bnt the probabil
ities are strong" that it wonld.
One of the defects was the want of or
ganization. There was' a State 'Conven
tion to nominate a ticket; bnt beyond
that, the party was scarcely organized.
The'Stata wasxsfevassed. in part, while
many" points were neglected. County
Conventions were almost wholly dispens
ed with; and candidates for the Legisla
ture announced themselves. In some in'
stences, there were more than one Anti
Lane candidate in a District, and the
friends of each wrangled among them
stives. On the other hand, the Lane men
Were well organized and drilled, and
worked harmoniously, thus being enabled
to carry some Districts ia which the ma
jority was really largely against them.
In some placet, tbe Anti-Lane men went
into Convention with the Lane men, and
being out-managed, quietly submitted,
without bringing out candidates of their
We frequently inquired, during the
campaign, about the prospects in certain
localities, and were always assured that
they were -all right. "How was it in
Hoop-Pole Township I" "Oh, there is
oo danger there ; Muggins; who used to
be the leading Lane man, has- turned
against 'him, and is working for onr side
with all his might. At the same time,
Maggies had 8500 in green-backs in his
pocket, received from Lane and Bid.
Olarke, to electioneer for them. "How
in Persimmon County ?" "Straight as
a shingle. Old Gimblet-eye runs that
Oonnty. Lane promised him an office,
but played off on him; and now be has
agreed to work for our ticket." At that
lime, Gimblet-eye bad announced him
self as tbe Lane candidate for the Legis
lature, and had Lane's promise for a fat
office, aa aoon as the Legislature should
adjourn. "What ia the prospect in the
Wild-cat District!" "All oae-sided
there. Sqnealer hat a tremendous infln
ence there. He sees thst Lsne has gone
trp, and he wants to be Consul to tbe
Feejee Islands. Lane promised it to him,
bnt violated his pledge. Now Sqnealer
is working for as; end we have agreed to
use onr influence to get him the place
which he desires." And all the while,
Squealer was working for Lane, who bad
assured bim that he was to be Secretary
of State for tbe next fonr years, and had
already given Squealer a commission as
Minister to England, to take effect when
Lane entered tbe Cabinet. These names
are fictitious, and the incidents somewhat
changed; bnt something like them actual
ly occurred, and mneb mora besides,
equally ridiculous, which it wonld reqnire
too mncb space, to refer to. And this
Is the sort of organization that tbe Anti
Lane' party had. Guess work, supposi
tion, and resting the fate of Districts up
on the word of men who changed front
twite a day, and amounted to nothing, af
ter all. ' -
There were instances in which reliable
Anti-Lana men were pushed aside to give
way for those who bad until recently been
bowling for Lane, bnt who, thinking he
was played out, bopped over into the op
posita party, and grabbed for the fat
places. It was hoped in this way to
draw support from the Lane party,-which
signally failed. -The Lane men became
incensed against them, and the Anti-Lane
men feared to trust such sudden converts.
The friends of various prominent men
had agreed to unite in a common cause;
and when tbe time for electing a Senator
arrived, every man would throw his
Strength to the candidate who command
ad jtbe greatest strength. In view of this,
the friends of some aspirants attempted to
-play sharp on tbe balance, by forcing
'themselves on the track, and compelling
,the friends of other men to support them,
or defeat the whole ticket A saying
prevailed daring tbe campaign, (and
there was more truth thsn poetry in it,)
that one entire regiment had been fur
'laughed and sent to their homes through
out the State, to ran for the Legislature,
in the interest of one of tbe aspirants.
Tbey poshed themselves in, regardless of
tbe claims of others, and laid especial
elaim to public favor because they were
soldiers. Many of these were notoriously
unfit for members of the Legislature; but
ran tbey would, or rain. This operation
did a sight of damage to tbe Anti-Lane
eanse. Besides the disgust wbieb their
operations produced, tbe people contend
ad that if Lane waa to be condemned for
thing like the above, tbey could not set
bow tbey 'could better the .matter by an
conraging it in .another. -
Another bad arrangement waa potting
op men for the Legislator merely be
cause tbey were Bobodoy's men, and bad
never mixed in polities enough to make
enemies. In all such instances, votes were
lost instead of gained.
There was another operation, most sin
gular of alL When men enlist in a cause
for tbe accomplishment of a great .object,
tbey generally keep the peace with one
another, and of all things refrain from
.warring upon those wbo are doing the
moat effective work in behalf -of their
cause. We venture the assertion, that
Gov. Carney spent more money to aid
the Anti-Lane caase, tbaT any other ten
men in the State; and he nsed all his in
fluence that way, and, aa far aa he could
honorably do so, the patronage of his of
fice.) let tbe Uovernor was almost as
soundly abused, during tbe campaign, by
men in the Anti-Lane party, as by those
of the 'opposite party. jWe" Haye) heard
speakers get up, and after pitching into
Lane. for a while, turn and attempt to car
ry favor with the rabble, by abusing the
Governor, and repeating all the stale slan
ders and vituperations which bad been
concocted by Lane and his tools. Such
stuff disgusted those who had any respect
for the Governor,- while it only convinced
the Lane men that their master had told
the truth, for Anti-Lane men were repeat
ing the same charges. Members of i
party thus making warfare upon the very
beet worker in the party, as a matter of
course flattened ont tbe whole movement
Some of the Anti-Lane presses and
speakers undertook to make capital
against Col- Crawford, tbe Lane candi
date for Governor, by taunting him with
being tbe Colonel of a negro regiment,
That kind of argument could not and
should not win. He who Itads black
men against the enemy, and conducts him'
self gallantly, is surely entitled to as
much honor as the commander of a regi
ment of any other color especially when
we remember that when he goes into bat
tie, be does so witb tbe. consciousness
that if he is taken, he will have no mercy
Had Gen. Lee been psrmitted to come
home and, see the "people, his election
wonld have been sure. But the War
Department lent all its influeno to
further the schemes of Lane. Lee was
refosed. a furlough; while Gierke, also
holding a military position, was allowed
to traverse the State without hindrance,
to address the people in his own behalf,
and scatter money to buy votes. Every
other officer who would nse his influence
in favor of the Lane tictet, was granted
leave of absence; while officers opposed to
Lane, such as Col. Phillips, were com
pel led to remain on duty.
But that which saved Lane and his
ticket, wss the immense Government pat
roaage which was placed at his control,
while every particle was withheld from
his opponents; and thousands of dollars'.
robbed from tbe Government, were-csrJ
to buy votes-. We say that such spec
tacle was never before witnessed-, ra this
or any other country. Their are-about
2,500 McClellan men in Kansas-: The
balance of the voters are alf thoroughly
loyal, and in favor of Lincoln. Tbey are
divided into-two almost equal parties, on
State issues; bnt on the Presidential ques
tion, both parties were ardent supporters
of Mr. Lincoln. Yet that Administration
threw all its patronage in favor of one
party, while the other it systematically
frowned npon and ground under its heel,
as if they had been rebels of the deepest
dye far more so than it did tbe semi-
rebftls of the Border States. When
party, composed of the most radical men
in the State, and the truest friends of the
Government, were thus persecuted by the
Administration, tbey had but little heart
Summing it all up, when we consider
that the Anti-Lane party made the cam
paign unorganized; that they fought each
other as much aa their opponents; and
that the Executive, Judicial and Military
influence of the .Government was nsed
against them, is it any wonder the Anti
Lane party has been defeated ?

I. Commanders of regiments and detach
ments called into active service by the procla
mation of the Governor and Commander-in-
Chief, of the 8lh of October, will cause to be
made out and forwarded to these Headquar
ters, immediately, a complete and accurate re -
port, showing the number of men that t rned
out and are entitled to pay, and the number of
animals and tbe amount of transp'jrtation ac
tually used in the service undei said procla
mation. They will also muster for p-iy, at as early n
day as practicable, the militia thus called out,
making a separate roll of such persons, includ
ing negroes, as are not liable to military dutr
under the militia laws of Kansas, but were or
dered into the service by p-oclamttion of Ma".
Gen. Curtis, declaring mtrtial law. Btauk
muster and pay rolls will be furnished, upon
application at these Headquarters.
II. All claims for subsistence, forage, fuel
and transportation will be made out in proper
form and forwarded, as directed by the Gover
nor, to Mjor-GneraI George W. Ceitzier, at
Lawrence. Persons presenting such claims,
will be required to furniIi the receipt of the

The General Commanding desires to tender
bis tribute of praise aud express bis pride to I
the citizen:soidiery of Kansas, wbo, at the fi:it
signal of alarm, marched to tbe scene of tbrea
tcned danger, with an alacrity and enthusiasm
which has no parallel in history, leaving .their
homes and occupations to tbe care of tbe wo
men and children, the decrepit and the infirm,
in a holy sea for the welfare of the State, and
who bore themselves, almost without a mar
tnur, through the feirful crisis, suffering all the
hardships and privations incident to the tea
son, without tents or a sufficient supply of
blankets, and camp and garrison equipage,
with a virtuous gallantry, and who, when vic
tory bad crowned our cause, returned quietly
to their homes, lo enjoy the deliverance par
chased, under the guidance of .God, by' their
self sacrificing and noble action.
Tbe conduct of tbe people of Kansas, in the f
casapaiga jaat ended, challenges the admirat-ea
of avary loyal and patriotic mind, and furniafaes
an example which, if followed by a similar ont
pouring of the people of the Northern States,
would certainly; effectually and speedily crush
ttia wicked rebellion, together with its cause.
While we miurn the lost of the gallant dead
who aleep quietly in honored graves, and deep
ly sympathize with tbe wounded a&d the be
reaved, we' have cause to congratulate our
selves that our casualties are to light, and al
to, that the threatened luvasion is not entirely
without compensating benefits.
It baa developed the military spirit of our
people, ,and inspired full' confidence In our
prowess and ability to laccessfully defend the
State it act otaea arau ana" tquismrait com
plete to nterlg eceryj-un t JCsnsu, and to-day
we caa safely bout that we have a better mi
litia establishment than any State in the'Uni-
on. Tbe enemy Is not ignorant of these facts.
and It U confidently believed, he will not again
venture an attempt to overrun Kansas. It is
gratifying to bterve, too, ihat larre portions

so large a nflmber of rtbel women, whose in

twice the same number of men, will teod to

erate soldiers having no longer the inductm-at
to make annual visits to their families in Mi
sourl. The expenses incurred by the Mmpiip,
though amounting to millions in the ijj-tjMf,
will not prove a heavy burthen on ihe Suit.
