ToraKA, January 30, 1672.
The resolatioa. to tnTestigBteeonnptietitu Sen

boated duKaaeioa, with amendmanta, isclading
the Foxksot and. Bom election. ThU U more,

Mid about-selling out votes and refusing to divide
the money, we shall now have an opportunity to
find oat the truth about certain French gentle
men in Doniphan County, at a former election,
receiving a good round sum of money to control
j the vote of ( a certain old noodle who represented
Doniphan County, after ascertaining how ho in
tended to vote, tbcu pocketing the money, leav
ing the member ignorant of bow his vote, bad
been speculated upon.
The Senate has defeated the bill for postponing
the 10 per cent penalty on taxes. - There seemed
to be a strong feeling that the precedent would
"be an inducement to the people to delay paying-
their taxes next year, in the expectation that the
penalty would be postponed again.
We have the usual number of bills for the for
mation of new Judicial Districts. There are more
lawyers in the State than there is business for
them, and places must be providrd for them.
The bill exempting from taxation the capital of
money lenders, secured by mortgage on "men's
farms, met a violent death in the Senate.
The Senate has passed a concurrent resolution
submitting the question to a vote of the people,
of calling a Conention to frame a new Constitu
tion. It is yet to be considered by the House.
Some one has put a bill in to abolish flogging in
public schools. It has called forth remarks from
The Senate consumed Wednesday afternoon dis
cnssiugMuRDOCKV'OnoTerm'' resolution. Mub
DOCX, being a devout follower of the great Gree
ley, is doubtless honest in this matter; bnt "one
term" is one of the cheap humbugs of the day,
and has been brought iuto fresh agitation by the
politicians who cannot control Grant to their
wishes, or who want his place. To be sure, it was
one of the hobbies of the good old Whig party;
but as that party was usually ont of office, and
upon the whole too timid to make use of oppor
tunities and advantages as they offered, they
were of course opposed to a man holding the office
of President fur two terms, and were thankful to
secure au occasional one term for themselves.
The party that is in a hopeless minority, is always
in favor of the one term principle. The agitation
now, simply arises from opposition to Grant; and
bad the resolution passed it would have been
heralded throughtont the land as another State
pronounced against Grant. It was oted down
by a two-thirds majority.
The Legislature seems disposed to go for the
hunters. A bill has passed the Senate, prohibit
ing persons from hunting within tho enclosures of
others, without permission from the owners; and
another bill forbidding the netting, trapping or
shooting of quail nnder any circumstances, or
even punishing persons found with quails in their
possession. The lines for violation of the law are
heavy. The farmers in the Legislature are all
strongly in favor of tho bill. They say that tho
quail is the only effectual enemy of the chinch
bug, and tliat from the way these birds are being
destroyed, they will soon become extinct.
The fees of Connty and other officers will receive
attention. There are several bills in for estab
lishing and regulating the fees of County officers.
There is somethiug curious connected with the
aalarias of some of the subordinate State officers,
and employees in the various Stato institutions.
They were allowed salaries upon w hich they lived
comfortably through the years of high prices.
They have since had their salaries increased sev
eral times, but are steadily working for a further
increase. No matter how great the decrease in
the prices of living, an officer never willingly per
mits a reduction of his salary, but holds on to it
like death to a dead nigger.
An effort has been made and defeated in the
Senate, and is now being made in the House, to
pass an 'act requiring that all books used in pub
lic schools shall be purchased by the Distinct,
frorn the general fuud. As the law already re
quires that the School Boards shall purchase books
for those who are unable to do so, perhaps it goes
as far as there is any necessity for.
Looking over the appropriations in the past,
and those that will bo asked for this Winter, has
suggested a few calculations, the result of which
may be summed up thus: An additional wing to
the Stato House is badly needed. There is al
ready a lack of room, and some of the Stato De
partments, and Legislative clerks, are non quar
tered in outside buildings, rented for tho purpose.
But the people, of the State do not feel able or
willing to undertake the work at present. Now.
if all unnecessary appropriations excessive sala
ries, exhorbitant charges, and the thousand and
one outside steals, under various names and pre
tences that are allowed by the Legislature every
year, were cut off, there would be enough saved
in three years, from these sources alone, not only
to build au additional wing, bnt to erect the East
Portico. This may seem a large estimate; but
let any one look ot er the appropriations for a few
years past, and he will find that there has been a
systematic game of grabbing, gobbling and steal
ing, that figures up over 100,000 a year.
Thoso fellows who are amusing Jhcmselvea by
introducing apportionment bills for Congressmen,
are likely to have their trouble for nothing, as it
is very uncertain whether Kansas will be allowed
two or three members. The question may not be
, decided m Congress before the adjournment of the
Legislature, which would make it necessary to
choose between three alternatives: A bill pasted
on suspicion, with provision for two or tbreo
members, as the case may be; an extra session, to
apportion the State; or a bill providing for the
election of all the members on a general ticket.
A free excursion and dinner.it Emporia comes
off to-day. A bill appropriating about $50,000 for
additional buildings for the Normal School will
be likely to follow. As great conflagrations are
said to be followed by.rain, so these excursions
aud free dinners are usually followed, by those
giving it, with a request for money to aid some
enterprise in which they are interested.

list of members who sold their votes, last Winter,
we believe to be a slander upon an honest mas.
While we cannot positively say that we know he
did not sell ont, we do not believe, and the pub

in the heat of political excitement, the charge
has been freely made against othermcmliersfrom

But what we wish to speak of new, U the man
jtr iu which we have been connected with the
affair which, 'by the way, unravels what-to us
was Kinerly a riddle. It will be remembered
that, a ehort time ago, the Troy JfcjmMicaa asked
us me question, "Wnat about the Moore divis
ion t" We have, withiu the past few ilaj s, had it
explained to us, that the men about Troy who
have been paying so much attention to us of bite,
have been telling the story that we and other
members from Doniphan County sold Mr. Moore's
vote, and divided the money between us, giving
him none of it! What other members may have
done, especially those whose tongues have been
so glib on this question, we are unable to say;
but the charge is of a character that never enter
ed our imagination, and shows its originators to
be remarkably inventive in the way of trumping
np stories to gratify their spite and disappoint
ment. It is certainly complimentary to Mr.
Moore, to represent him as being the nonentity
that this charge would indicate. Because the
game was putyed upon the Bepresentaiive from
the First District in a former election, it is no ev
idence that all our Representatives are such men.
Now wo come to think of it, the man who did the
trick was at Topcka at the time of tho last elec
tion; aud if such a thing was done, as charged,
very likely he was the chap that did it. But he
failed to sell out any of the delegation, aud hence,
probably, his grief.
We are used to such accusations, and are ablo
to stand all that can be said about us ; but to
bring a man like Mr. Moore into the matter, for
the purpose of making capital against us, was
wholly unwarranted and inexcusable. What he
has done to incur the enmity of the Troy Republi
can and its informants, wc are unable to say; but
they are entitled to the credit of causing his
name to be published as a corruptiouist, by a pa

The Vmry JLaw.
The Lawrence Tribune has an able article on
the repeal of the usury law. Several papers to
w have discussed the question and ad
vanced similar view recently, and the opinion
that the law should be repealed is gaining ground.
It is i notorionsthatthelaw is a farce, and that it it
evaded every day. In these stringent times for
money none can be obtained., without breaking
the law. We believe in "free trade" in money
matters. Protection may bo and. probably is a
good thing in' some eases, bnt it isn't applicable
to Kansas when ft wants money. -Let as throw
opes oar doors to all capitalisu-and allow money
to flow in .here and seek iu own level, like any
other commercial-commodity. We hope onr next
legislature, which willbecomposcd of many of the
ablest men of the State, will thoroughly consider
the qnestion of repealing the usury law, and do
what it can to relieve the financial distresses of
the-people. Here is the closing portion of the
Ttiiunt'i article: a
"It is wrong in principle to begin with. It is
an interference of the state with the essential
rights of the individual. .A man has ju.t as good
a right to a'freeexercise of his1 judgment iu hiring
juuucy asmnngauorse. Ami one man has just
asgood a right to loan his monev for wh.it it will
bring, as another has to sell bis wheat fur what it
will bring. And if it be replied that muny loau
lug is so important a matter that the State must
interfere aud regulate it, it may be replied that
it is nothing like so vital to the distressed as the
the sale of biead and -the renting of houses, mat
ters which the law never thinks of controlling in
"Then, too, this law operates directly against
the mau w.bo is distressed for money. For while
money is as scarce as the laws now causu it to be.
the bnsiuess man" who deposits with the banks
will receive all the loans the banks have to make,
And savings banks, which loan for long time ou
real estate security, will, scarcely have an exis
tence this ten years in the State if the laws re
main as they are. So what money farmers, aud
nianjr of our business men, too, can succeed in
borrow iug4hey get at rubious rateof interest;
while iu every instance the borrower must pro
bably be a better mau. both as to his nordaud
iiis real estate security, thanthe borrower from
the banks at legal rates. For the law makes the
Joaner loau ht a risk; and ef course he will only
uu mjs risa. niiu iub uesfc nuiu ui men. ou mat
the law militates against the man it was inten
ded to help.
"And still further. The law enables the vigi
lant Sbylock to get bold of the necessitous aud
fleece them severely by raising a barrier up to
which money loaning is legitimate and beyond
which reasonable money Ioaners cannot go, and
where the whole field which is now an immense
one occupied bv the Slivlocks.
"And lastly, as to what we have now the space
to say, the law which proclaims that the mouey
loaner iu Kansas is entitled to one per cent, a
month proclaims to the largo money loaucrs in
Kansas is a very risky business. If it were a
certain business mouey would only le recognized
as worth seven or eight per cent. To the fixing
of twelve per cent, as the legitimate limit for the
rate of money loaning is but proclaiming that the
state has laws that reuder the loauer insecure,
and that a large bonus must be offered to induce
him to take all the risks.
"Let the usury law be abolished as one f the
three steps necessary to make money in Kansas
as plenty as its farms and other property are
valuable. It will then be worth what it is in the
States of New York and Massachusetts.

The Leavenworth Time says: "Yesterday af
ternoon a horrible accident occurred at the old
Turner hall, corner of Seventh and Deleware
streets, by which a colored man named Zachariah
Peters, in the employ of Mr. Chapin, had his left
arm so badly mutilated that amputation above
tho elbow was necessary. Ho was feeding a ma
chine nsrd for stripping or preparing hnsks for
mattresses, and his hands becoming cold, be put
on a pair of cloves. The work was rendered
awkward by this, and the left haud of the unfor
tunate man was soon canght by the long iron
teeth of the rapidly revolving cylinder, and in an
instant his forearm was torn to shreds, nearly to
the elbow. The limb, or the remains i.f it nn.
sented a horrible appearance, and of course am
putation was necessary. Drs. Stiles and Neeley
performed the operation.
The sufferer is a poor, industrious, and deser
ving laboring man, with a family, who can ill
afford to lose nis support, and we commend the
caso to our generous citizens. We suggest that a
collection betaken np for his family, at one of
the meetings today.

to immigrants seeking homes in the west, may be
stated as follows:
Frnits reach a delicious maturity, and on ac

Wood is cheaper than in Ohio aud Indiana, and
so is native lumber.

Coal, which exists in inexhaustible quantities,
will supply all demands for fuel.
Potatoes and all vegetablea are raised in pro
fusion. In a country with ranges for stock unrestric
ted, and pasturage limitless, tho production of
butter and cheese is very profitable.
Kansas yields the palm to no Stato in respect
to sheep-raising. Its advantages are so great, in
comparison with more northern States, that they
attract the attention of the wool-growing in
terest all over tbe North. The mildness of the
climate, the early, sunny spring, the little winter
feed necessary, give Kansas an advantage over

Saturday and Sunday was occupied in perfecting the ar
rangement, and in the different actors learning their pieces.
Tho liverymen of Lawrence had borrowed all the nice ba
rouches and buggies In Topeka, and these were ordered
home on the double quick. The. rules established under
the proclamation of martial law were so perfect, that the
duties of the members of the Legislature were rendered
the caoiest thing in the world, if they but kept in view the
programme. The State Home was talen from their con
trol; but they were Uudly permitted to occupy Benmen.
tatives' Hall, provided they did not Invito then- wires or
any of their friends to go with them. They were excluded
from the gallerlix. which mt'e reserved "for tbe women
foils. Marshal BiUings'srb-et squad were detailed to en
force these regulations. The members were Instructed to
rbra np and to sit down at given signals from the engineers
of this ovation, and were commanded to assist in singing
the chorus of the welcoming song; and then they were to
go through sham legislation, to show the Grand Duke how
a free people make laws. They were then to ie, while
the Grand Duke and invited guests filed out to go to dinner;
after which, nothing ni-re would be required of them, un
til the appropriation bill came up.
Monday morning, the city was astir, bright and early.
Buggies whizzed through tbe streets; men galloped about
on horseback ; American and Biuslan flags, tanner and
streamers floated in the breeze; photographs of Tom. An
derson, scenes connected with bis buffalo hunt, and insur
ance advertisements of Mayor Welch, decorated the door
waya and windows along the principal streets in fact noth.
lngwas omitted that could render the Grand DuVe't visit
attractive and entertaining.
While the procession is over the river to receive tho
Grand Duke, let us tale an Inventory of the Grand Duke
and his party. There were the Grand Duke Alexis, Ad
miral roesiet. Minister Bodisco, the Chancellor of RumIs
Count Piswisk, Gen. Shovermoff, Count Sklranoff, Lieut.
Wheatamanoff, and Mr. Jerkadorgshlndlegoff; besides a
number of United States officers.
I stationed myself at a convenient place on the principal
street, to get a good view of the procession, salt passed.
As It passed the Court House, the follow ing was the order:
It A carriage containing Tom. Anderson, Mayor
Welch, and a military looking gentleman, whom I took for
General Sheridan, but who. as I afterwards learned, waa
Marshal Billings, in full regimentals.
b A, wagon load of men, blowing horns.
3d. Lieutenant-Governor Elder, Speaker Cobb, and a
i oung man Having a foreign look, whom I did not know.

As they entered tha State Hoes ground, sad sppTOsea
d tha "East Portico," tha Grand Duke exclaimed : "Ah,
glorious! This reminds ms of Bnasiar He referred to tha
climate. That spot la known to be the coldest and wiadl-
euuaorth. America, sad la said to reasaWa the climate
Forcing their way, by dint of hard pushing, through tha
erowdsof special poUeemen. tha party ascended the stafS)
of the "East P-rtico." and were introduced te the Gover
nor a room. The Governor welcoasedth Grand Dike la a
short speech, wherein n pointed out the advantagM efa
free Government ever moaarchioal one, and then gave
bun an Insight into tha mysteries of the Governor's office.
The Grand Duke expressed himself highly pleated with
tbe blank Kotiry Public commissions, and reprieve of
convicts In the penitentiary. A they turned to go out, a
lot of women turrounded the Grand Dnke, to ahale hands,
and one of them bestowed upon his Immense fi.t a slobber
tag kiss. rVelng the by-standert smile, the Grand Duke
remarked; "Never mind; Iahall wash my hands before
They next visited the Anditor't ofSce. where Auditor
Thoman exhibited his boola to the Grand Duke, to show
how promptly a free people drew all the money that waa
appropriated, and also showed him a lot of Stato script.
The Treasurer's oDce was next visited, where Treasur
er Hayes exhibited the new safe. This was done to great
advantage, as the safe waa empty.
Next, the Secretary of State's ofEe was Interviewed.
Capt. Smallwood did the honor of this office, showing tha
Grand Duke the last census returns and copies of the bo.
Calw.snd explaining the philosophy of the new mucil
age octties purcnasediiirtheuseof the Legiidature.
The Superintendent of TuMic Instruction was then vis
ited. Prot McCarty took great pains to explain our sys
tem of education, and especially his plan fur compulsory
education, and permitted the Duke to inspect McGuffey't
Headers. The attention of tho Grand Duke was attracted
by a petitiou lying on the table, from Southern Kansas, In
which the name of a School Director waa spelled with an
X HuIIlghncattaokUfuraaroboloftheGn .Lr-hnn-fc
The Grand Dake waa then invited to descend to the
basement, to visit the ofiicesdown there; but he politely
declined, remarking aside to Bodisco, that it reminded him
to much of the descent Into the imperial dungeons of St
Tha party now proceeded to Representatives' HalL where
the full force of special policemen was eugaged In prevent
ing the mob from taking posseesfon of the chair reserved
fur the Grand Duke and his party. As the party entered,
the Grand Duke was welcomed by Speaker Cobb, in a few
happy remarks, te which the Duke responded. I would
omit the speeches, were it not that erroneous reports have
been published by the newspaper reporter, in which the
beauty and meaning of the speeches hare been dMtr.,l
Sieaker Cobb, bracing himself against the Speaker's stand,

As the Grand Duke concluded. Tom. Anderson's MIn.

Partoent is the President' ifo's brothcr-in-law'a
Lcond cousin. To such a fearful eitent.hasnepoj
tUm be?n carried by the present Administration ,!
It is not denied that under Gen. Grant s Admtm
ftration the debt has been reduced to an extent
without procedent iu financial history; but then
it is equally clear that the vlde..8ni0?
stronc cigars. It is admitted that more than SS0
000,000 taxes have been lifted from the shoulders
of tbe people; but wbat answer have we to the
fearful fact that the President likes p horse
almost as much as Washington and Jefferson didT
iDMnitigatiou of this offence, it may be pleaded
that soldier are generally rather fond of horses.
fiirtr Srsvirr RrvflBU. An article in 17ar-
per's ITVriW, on "The President aud the Civil Ser
vice," ojiens as loiiows :
" Among the objections urged against the Pres
ident's scheme of reform of the civil service is
that it ! unt siibieet the iireseut oflicers to ex-
amiuatmn, and tlierctore as is aiiegeu, icavra uj
the service a multitude of inefficient men, who will
hei th mere mercenaries of the President. The
desirable method of so great a reform, however,
seems to be that the principle shall be radical aud
the orocess sure but the beinnniticis gentle. It is
also desirable to judge the method upon its own
merits' and, so far as practicable, iudependeutly
of the President vt ho authorizes it."
There is a very simple answer to the malignant
clamor raised by the opposition journals on this
poin. Tliesa paiiers never allow themselves to
suspect that a reform embracing tlio vast inter
ests of the Government in the service of fifty
thousand employes, cannot lie carried out before
breakfast any morning. They can see unoccasion
fur perfecting the delicate machinery propooed
before applying it instantly to every officer iu the
laud. Formerly the cry against the President
was, 'Yon are opposed to civil service reform."
When he took active measures to secure that re
form, his enemies said, " You ought to have done
it before." Now they cry out, "It is not the Wind
of reform we asked fur," which is quite true, be
cause it goes too far for them. Is unt all tliis a.
very iutelhgent opposition f X F. Timet.
Dr. Shaw informs ni that ou last Wednesday
eveiug, as Mr. Levi Nfilrmv uud his family were
returning from Mr. ilinchel's, where they had
been visiting, the buggy wheel came off and pre
cipitated all the inmates down an embankment,
considerably to the bodily injury of Mr. N. He is
now, however, improving as fast as circumstances
will permit. The others escaped uninjured.

showed that what tho Dnke mistook for poetry, were tha
