ATCHISON, FEBRUARY 3, 1855.
TO THE PATRONS OF THE
The im'fcrsigned would ask as a favor,
that his oU Patrons who are indebted for
Suterription, Job Work, or Advertising,
would forward the respective amounts due,
mined iatety. The new enterprise ! we
have embarked in, requires capital, and as
we have depended on the debts due us for
a part of that capital, it is particularly nec
cssary that we should receive every dollar.
Subscribers who have paid in advance,
will receive the ' "Squatter Sovereign."
Money enclosed in a letter, directed to the
undersigned, at Atchison, Kansas, Tcr.;
in the care of Abell & Striugfellow, Wes
ton, Mo., will be promptly received.
ROBERT S. KELLEY.
ESSWc call the attention of our readers
to our advertising colums; particularly to
the advertisement of the Port William
Trustees, as offering to speculators a chance
for investments by which much may be
realized. Port William is a beautifull site,
a few miles above Iatan; with fine timber
adjacent, and only three or four miles from
the California road. And also, to the
Atchison Ferry company's card, affording
to California, Oregon, Utah, and Kansas
Emigrants the nearest and t best crossing
on the river, Our old friend at Iatan, also
offers great inducements at his Ferry, to
Kansas Emigrants, and we can say " from
experience, that he can cross the , river
whenever any boats can. !(
frST We issue a few more papers this
week than our regular edition, and send
them to persons who ought to become sub
scribers. Those of our friends who may
receive them, who do not' wish to aid in
carrying on the "good work"" of making
Kansas a Slave' State, Will have their
names erased by returning the paper, with
their names and address upon it.' ,
As it is necessary that the Pro-Slavery
interests in this part of the Territory should
be looked after, it is to be hoped that all
who feel friendly to the cause, will, patron
ize us. -
California Poetry. We always
find at least one "gem of purest ray serene"
in the California papers. A Mr: Allen
Lee Bours, in an original poem lately de
livered before the Stockton Library Asso
ciation, thus "lets himself out," after de
live ring: a severe cast igajtion to naughty
boys for disrespect to their parents: .
"Indeed, my friends, far better would it seem,
Were you to choose the other great extreme
Like one down east, who an umbrella took;
And from the rain gave shelter to a duck;
Who to a limping dog once lent his arm, , -And
passing a setting hen said, don't rise
Nor e'en to lifeless things'respect did lack,
Said always to a chair, 'excuse my back. ,
Excuse my curiosity, he said to books, ,
And to th$ looking glass, 'excuse my looks. '
O, could there, in this world be found ,-
Rome little spot of happy ground,
Whore village pleasures might go round
Without the village tattling 1 ; .
How doubly blest that place would be,i .
Where all might dwell in liberty,
Free from the bitter misery ! l ;
Of gossip's endless prating. ' , .
Tiie Vashington correspondent of
the Baltimore Sun, says: ' ' ' !i ; ' ; ;
"The Sandwich Islands will be annexed
after all, and, as I verily believe, without
a protest cither from England or France.
The maritime equilibrium of .the world, re
quires that we should hold the Sandwich
Islands, while' the: interests of commerce
and civilization Avill best ' be promoted -by
our possession .of those islands.. .1 'r "

"We are a great people indeed. We will

but let calamity enter a household, and. the
heart of the million throbs as one man."
