WHITE CLOUD, KA5SA8;
TkirsteT, ': : : : May 2, IM7.
Leat week, joet as we jot the forme oi
onr paper on tbe press, aa enlbqnake
occurred,, to tbe announcement of which
fact we eo'nld manege to crowd in hot
The phenonemon occurred about fifteen
or' twenty minutes before three o'clock,
oa Wednesday afternoon, and lasted
probably half a minute altogether. There
were two distinct shocks. The first was
tbe lightest, and of the shortest duration,
and mere! vseemod to arouse tbe people
to tbe fact that "something was op,"
and prepare them for tbe second and
harder one, when the first had almost
eeesed ; then there was tall scampering
for the streets, in every direction. The
hock was accompanied or preceded by
a, muffled, rumbling sound, In frame
Jbnildingg, the effect was something like
that produced by rolling a heavy cask
over the floor; while in solid bricks,
there was a jarring and jerking, like that
of a steamboat running at good speed,
with her keel constantly scraping and
bumping on the 'sand, accompanied by
fully as much rattling end creaking.
We believe there was no damage done to
buildings. A brick-kiln in tbe vicinity
of our office, was pretty thoroughly
The main force of theesrtbquake, as
far as .wo can ascertain, was in this part
of the country, We have beard of it as
far north as Omaha, and some points in
Iowa, as far west as Junction City, and
u far south and east as Jefferson City.
At tbe latter place, it was quite light,
and was noticed by only a few persons.
-East of there we have no account of it.
Persons who pretend to have felt it, are
r We have board, from various persons,
;the appearance of things from their posi
tion during the shock. But tbe testimo
ny of nearly every one who stood on sol
id ground at the time, is nniformly tbe
.same that their first sensation was as if
they had received a strong electrio shock
in the legs, commencing at the feet and
extending to the knees, almost causing
them to fall.
-s A workman who -was on the walls of
tbe new churcb, says tbe gable end
swayed outward, leaving enough room
for a man's body between the wall and
' Heavy rafter that had stood solid
against it; and that after all was over,
and rafter stood as close and
He thinks tbe' wall
must have moved, as tbe rafter was both
firmly bolted and braced.
A person who was down street, in a
position where he could barely catch a
glimpse of the front of our office build
ing, says that during the rocking, he at
times had a plain view of tbe end of the
bouse, and then again, tbe whole was en
tirely hidden from view.
. Persons who were on the bluff, above
town, say that on looking down, the sur
face of tbe earth seemed to have a wavy
appearance, something like a field of
wheat or tall grass, when the wind blows
A gentleman who was at work on his
farm, aays that, in glancing over a knoll
t Bear by, ho conld just, see the top of an
other knoll some distance beyond, on
.which there was plowed ground. Du
ring the shock, the plowed ground would
. alternately disappear entirely from eight,
and come in fnll view.
A gentleman who was near the timber.
ays the stems of the trees bent or "whip
ped" back and forth rapidly, as if agita
ted, by a violent wind which kept chang
ing from one side to the other. There
was little or no wind at the time.
Those who were near thejriver, say the
water was considerably agitated, receding
from and approaching tbe banks, like
tbe water in a large vessel that has been
Persons in boats, or riding in wagons
or on horseback, could not distinguish
the motions of the earthquake from those

There had been a heavy frost in the
morning, but the afternoon was pleasant
and almost cloudless, with a hazy ap
pearance of the atmosphere.
Earthquakes have been known from
the earliest ages. The first one on record
was Hut which swallowed op Koran and
Jria rebellions host, in tbe days of Moees.
We might observe that onr citizens do
not desire another experience of this
kind ; bat we will not, for it will make
bat little difference whether tbey desire
' it or not.

Tbe Atchison Champion denounces
Ben. Loin for having prevented tbe con
firmation of Col, It. C. Bradshaw and
OoL James M. Graham as Postmaser of
St. Joseph, and permitting tbe confirma
tion of Judge Wyatt, a Conservative, to
the same position. Without endorsing
Wvatt, onr sentiment is, ttat if Loan's
influence succeeded in ahelvinglbe two
redoubtable Colonels, it should be put
down, to bis credit. Tbe idea that jf a
man was a good soldier, it should atone
for all future political treachery and
meanness, is one that men of right'prin
ciple will not countenance. If men fight
gallantly to put down tbe rebellion, as
Bradshaw and Graham did, and after
wards, out of mercenary or revengeful
feelings, nnite with the party whose chief
aim is to restore the rebels to their
"rights," and destroy the results of tbe
war, they are not as deserving of honor
and office as a consistent Copperhead.
Give os an out-and-out Conservative,
in preference to a sfaystering, unprinci
pled man who professes to be Union or
Bradshaw went into the army, a steady.
hard-working, unpretending man. He
fought gallantly, received wounds, and
won promotion. The latter be could not
bear ; and upon returning borne, he im
agined the wbole Radical cause rested
npon bis shoulders; that be "ran" tho
party in St. Joseph, and thnt withont him
it was nothing. There were those who
wonld not recognize this assumption, and
Bradshaw was not honored and elevated
to the extent that he imagined himself
entjfled to. He became "sore ;" and tbo
rebel party, finding a good subject to
work upon, petted him, and told him
how he had been abused. The resnlt
has been, that Bradshaw has, for over a
year past, invariably made it a point to
desert tbe Republicans at the critical
point, and throw his influence with the
rebel party; and Bradshaw never fails
to figure as a candidate for office on tbe
rebel ticket. Tbe Radical party is kept
distracted, and tbe rebels usually elect a
good part of their ticket all to gratify
the vanity and spite of this one man
Ben. Loan did right in barring the pre'
tentious mischief-maker out of a lucrative
position to which be was appointed as a
reward for his treachery.
Graham is another specimen, "tarred
with tbe same stick." At tbe beginning
of tbe war, he received an appointment
in a Kansas regiment, as a Kansas man,
and served tbrongh the war. That being
over, bo returned to Kansas, with the de
termination of living' by office. What
his former politics wero, we do not know;
but when tbe issue arose between loyalty
and Andrevv Johnson, and an effort was
made to demoralize the Republican par
ty in this State, Graham, with other
prominent politicians and military offi
cers, as Kansas men, signed a call for a
Johnson organization. .Soon after, the
Post Office squabble in St. Joseph open
ed ; and Graham, suddenly recollecting
that he was a resident of Missouri, be
cause his family had visited there during
the war, pnt in a claim for the St. Jo
ssph Post Office, and came near succeed
ing. ''Slipping up" on this, he again
became a Kansao, long enough to attend
as a Johnson bummer at Topeks, last
Winter, to work against the re-election
of Senator Pomeroy. Tbe St. Joseph
Post Office question just then opening
up again, he recollected that he was a
Mitsourian, as his family resided there.
and again "went for it." Among other
help, we have good reason to believe, be,
presented certificate from the editor of
the Champion to the President, certify
iogjhat he had been a bona jide resident
of Missouri, for Io I these msny yeats
But they did not save him, and he "went
up the spout" again.
Ben. Loan, and every other Radical
Congressman who foils tbe attempts of
such renegades and time servers to obtain
tbe price of their treachery, deserves tbe
thanks of all loyal and honest men.

their advertisements. Therein they acted
wisely. Brown is improving, this Spring,
more rapidly than any other Connty in

natural business point ; onr merchants
and Inmber men are already receiving a
heavy patronage from that region ; and

will afford them new inducements and
advantages as it grows, and as its busi

which are unavoidably crowded out of

havo left it over, and given place to tbem.
They will appear next week, which we
presume will be time enongh, as it is yet
three weeks until tbe election, in our
next two issues, 'we Bball hold pretty
much all our space at tbe disposal of the
Countv Seat contestants. It 6eems to
us, this very Financial Statement furnish
es a good many vainahlo texts to use on
this all-important qnestion.
Prairie Ncrsert. We would again
speak a word in favor of E. Snyder's
"Prarie Nursery," at Highland. He has
spared no labor or expense in establish
ing a No. 1 Nursery ; and those who
have visited it, say bo has an immense
stock of the finest fruit and ornamental
trees ever brought to Kansas. He is
taking active measures to bring his
Nursery to the knowledge of the public ;
and if a liberal system of advertising,
the material to back up bis promises, and
energy and fquare dealing, will insure
success, he is on tbe right track.
River. The river is rapidly falling.
Fears are expressed that tbe main chan
nel will be down the "slough," west of
Rush Island, as the banks have been cut
away very much, and the strongest cur
rent appears to bo through that cut-off.
This would bo a calamity to Forest City,
as it would leave that place an inland
town, two or three miles from the river,
except in times of high water ; and it
wonld also be a great damage to land
owners along tbe new channel.

Buxa Oak. April 29, 1SG7.
Eniroa Chief: The citizens of Burr Oak
Bottom hare been visited bv nn overflow of
" Big Muddy," doing 'considerable damage.
Sereral families moved out to the bluffs; but
as the river is falling, thsy will resume labor
on their farms.
The County Seat question Is being discussed
among tho farmers of this Township. A large
portion of the voters of this Township are in
faTor of the Connty Stat remaining at Troy,
for tha reason that they claim tbat it will ben
efit the greatest number of people of the Coun
ty by remaining near the centre. Tbe citizens
of the upper bottom find a ready market for
their surplus fire wood at Troy, upon clearing
up their heavy timber land, which otherwise
would be destroyed on the land an item
whieh they appreciate, and which they do not
desire to see discontinued. Bytbe way, this
item of wood has been talked of by Wathena,
as costing the County an enormous sum, which
has been grossly misrepresented. Mr. J. C.
Williams, of Burr Oak, has been furnishing
the County with wood, under contract, and he
will enter Into contract and band to furnish
tbe County with wood at $200 per year, which
is less, than it can be furnished for at Walhe
na. The mill at Troy, and the amount used
by the citizens for household purposes, creates
a market for wood, at reasonable rates. The
County Seat question is looked npon by the
citizens of Burr Oak, as one of interest both
to themselves and tbe whole County. They
are a Iibcial, sensible, industrious people, and
are willing to consult and desire the welfare
and convenience of tha people of the other por
tions of tbe County, as well as their own.
Many of them are heavy tax-payers, and desire
to see the contest settled on the first ballot, as
a matter of economy. That part of the Town
ship adjacent to Washington Township is
somewhat divided, but I think a handsome
vote will be polled for Troy.
