z J '.. t73elegate to Congress.-;
.4;tv The" Republican Convention vrbipli met
-to iJoniinate a "Delegate" to Conesi7"put 15
set? nomination Hon. Marcus Pabrqtt.
f ' Want of space' compels as to omit, the pub-
. llcation of the proceedings. There were
i J 03 delegates present, representing every
county in the Territory. The result of the
' ;f. jn formal ballot 'was . as follows; : Parrott,
' 57; Conway 26; Danford, 1 1 ; 5 Poster,1 3;
; , Harding,-!; Pomeroy, 4; iBlank, li Mr.
.Parrott having received -a considerable ma
" --n jority on" the informal Ballot, was, on mo
r 'j tion, declared unanimously nominated, and
,.. the convention passed a resolution, without
- i "... .'a dissenting voice, recommending to the
? Republican voters of the Territory that they
"give to Mr, Parrott their hearty and undi
j ; ded support, as a duty they owed . to the
v cause of their country, .
..- We hoist the name of Mr. Parrott at the
' ' head of our columns to-day, and shall do
all that in our power lies to secure his elec
tion by a triumphant majority, ;; ; ,? '
i. i v '.The Republicans' of this portion of Kan
sas know their duty and will perform it, by
" giving to Mr.' Parrott their unanimous sup
'r port. :i-.-H '. I-'. :-.:-
. -After the nomination was made Mr. Par
,.v rott was waited upon by a committee of
three gentlemen, who informed hinTof the
' honor which had been conferred upon him
by his fellow-citizens. He came forward
i.. and was received with cheers by the large
- ?- audience.- In his &peecb accepting the nom-
: - ination, he planted himself fair and square
on the Kepublican platform, and announced
, his intention to canvass the entire Territory
., ou the political issues involved in the' con
- test before us. We hope that he will favor
'the people of this section with his presence
. , at an early day. .
' .vV J - V The Constitution.;.
' We gladly "... give, up . our columns .thia
' week to the new Constitution, and ask for
it a careful and candid examination at the
hands of every reader. In our judgement
it is not merely , the best of the four framed
for Kansas, but the best in the Union. We
consider it in almost every particular a
' Modkl In3trouknt. It is moderate and
conservative " in its provisions, clear and
perspicuous in its language, and just to all
' sections. We believe it will be found to
be precisely ; such a Constitution aa The
: Reopleh&re been wanting and waiting for.
The opposition to it is purely factious and
" 'partisan, ami will prove to be as impotent
as it is baseless. .
Neither the Negrophilists, nor the Ne
grophobists, the "Nigger worshipers" nor
the Devil 'worshipers, have succeeded in
marring its fair proportions. The negro
and the blood-hound are both ignored while
the bona fide ' inhabitants of Kansas will
- find in it a 6a fe guard for every right and a
ready means of ; redress provided . for eve ry
grievance. Our most sanguine hopes and
expectations are far more than realized.
:From the well known ability and integrity
- of the members composing the convention
we expected a good Constitution, but we
did not " expect one 60 . faultless in every
word and every line.. We congratulate the
members 7f r-AhevCJooYeation s npom. their
work,; 'and ". we "congratulate ' the, ; people of
Kansas that the day of. their -deliverance
from Federal tyranny and misriilejs'.. pear
at hand 1 Again we - say -to all J'read the
.Constitution ; ?: 'j A
t - -. vc' '- -- 1 "' :
i-Ar "Bait Spnngs.' -J
'oTheiiew .Constitutiotf provides that Con-
gress shall ' donate to jhe jState of Kansas
twelve Salt Springs, with; a" section of land!
adjoining each, and all land necessary for!
working them. We learn that in the south
western part of the-State, about 100 miles
South from where' Walnut" Creek , empties
into the Arkansas, . there is a region where
pure rock salt is found in great abundance
near, the surface of the ground.- If -a well
be sunk to the depth of six or eight feet it
1 fills with water so highly impregnated with
salt that a stick dipped . in I the . water and
withdrawn is almost instantly coated white
'with pure salt. -We learn that this salt re
gion is particularly described in " Craigs
Commerce of the 'Prairies' -Who , has
the Book? It is by no means improbable
that Kansas within a very few years may
supply the whole vallejr of the Mississippi
with salt. Who can give us more light
upon the matter ? ;" , .
The, highest award made by the -Claim
Commissioners for. loss's sustained durin
the Kansas troubles; was to S. W. Eldridge.
His claim amounted to sixty thousand one
hundred . and seventy-seven dollars, forty
nine thousand seven hundred and seventy-
two dollars of which; was allowed. - The
smallest award made was to Henry B. Lacy,
of Douglas county; of nine dollars and
twenty cents; whose' claim was for ten tkou
sand and twenty -one dollars! :
... The Topeka Tribune says that a gentle
man living on the opposite side of the river
from Topeka had four horses stolen from

in order would be to catch them ! ' .

' By the way, we hear an incident t)f thes6
gentlemen, which' our readers nwy not have
met with- ' ; As it illustrates. ; very forcibly
Dromihent traits in their characters we
moat relate it. 1? It seems that just before
the Convention adjourned a warm discus
sion arose on the report of the Investiga
ting Commi ttee. : The ' African Democrats
led on by McDowell, Stinson;and Slough,
all of Leavenworth, made a fierce onslaugb
upon Mr. "Hutchinson, of .Lawrence, insist
ing upon his expulsion on the ground that
he'had offered a lot in Lawrence to secure a
vote in favor of Lawrence as; the temporary
capital. It was well known that the entire
troop of Africans had offered to vote for
Lawrence on . condition that the -Lawrence
Delegates would Vote for the annexation of
Southern Nebraska. Mr. S. Ov Thacher, of
Lawrence, having listened to these flatulent
uraaes upon nis colleague, maae ior "oun-combr,"-took
the. floor and earried the , war
into Africa in gallant style, by showing that
they were at least as guilty as Mr. Hutchin
son,' by offering to sell their votes to Law
rence on the capital question. All Africa
was in a blaze in a moment. Stinson first
gained the floor, and proceeded, in defiance
of all rules,rand of the President's repeated
calls to order, to. denounce Mr. Thacher in
the most violent terms, his Africrri friends
backing him with . furious shouts of 'Go
on!". , "go on!" Ha yielded at last to. the
peremptory order of the President, and took
his seat.' ' '; :''" " .
McDowel) instantly sprang to his feet and
continued in a similar strain. The Presi
dent, after vain attempts to enforce the rules,
ordered the Sergeant-atArms "to keep the
gentleman from Leavenworth (McDowell)
in order." ' McDowell, flourishing his cane
defiantly over, his head, called out "Let the
Sergeant-at-Arms come on!" Col. Slough,
the "fighting man" of the Africans, also
sprang to his feet directly behind Mr. Mc
Culloch, with the same yell of defiance, and
all Africa did the 6ame. Every Democrat
was on his feet. , for an instant all was wild
excitement, and blood-shed seemed inevita
ble. Members were instinctively clutching
for weapons, and the hot blood mounted in
to, every face. " Mr. Winchell, calm and
cool as a granite column, stood erect at his
desk. Mr. McCulloch rose up in massy'
strength, and turning deliberately around,
so as to face the redoubtable Slough, and
raising a most formidable pair of fists to the
proper position, shouted in thunder tones,
beginning in the Hebrew language, it is said,
"Order shall be maintained! Ii tou
WANT A FIGHT COME On!!" -.
, . At that moment- the true Tspirit of old
Breckenridge was well' represented. ' Mr.
Winchell in the chair and Mr. McCullough
on the floor were each in the proper place.
They were the ''men Jot the hour." Mean
While the whole body of Republicans had
taken a : step in advance," nearly surround
ing, the Africans. 5 At that critical moment
the clear sternvoice of -President Winchell
rang out "Order li order 1 1 -gentlemen
will resume' their 6eats !" ' The tone and
manner were decisive arid the order was in
stantly obeyed"'- The v" Africans" meekly
subsided the Republicans copied .instantly
and the House was 'still as death. ,
... Mr. McDowell again arose and addressed
the chair. - - !- .-- I "" i-1?
s President Winchell Will the .gentleman
from Leavenworth , obey the '.rules of the
"Convention? r . ' VV :-' ":: "
MrV McDowell I will' .- , i
c - The : President "The - - gentleman from
Leavenworth will proceed in order."
And he did.' j. x .. ' ,.;
' The insurrection of the "Africans" was
suppressed ! Mr. McCullough receives the
highest compliments for courage and con
duct, as he led the van, while . the senti
ments of the members toward the President
will , sufficiently , appear from -t the following
resolutions which were adopted unanimously,
just before the Convention finally adjourn
ed. The language is1 as happily chosen as
the. compliment is justly deserved.
'1 Whekkas, For the third time the people
of Kansas, through their chosen Renresen
tatives, have convened, in earnestness and
solemnity, to build up a bulwark of Free
dom and popular rights,, in the organization
of a State Government, and ., .. . . .
. Whereas, The hour being nigh L for the
word of parting and the close of our labors:
Therefore, be it r :,?,f.. i:;c f.:
Resolved, That the sincere thanks Tof this
Convention are hereby .', tendered the JEIon.
J. M. Winchell, for the" able, impartial and
dignified manner in which he has fulfiilled

According to the Osawatbmie Herald;
there are 1 020 fagal voters in Lykins county.
-.--' The . Objections--y: -J: .
-The Democrats alias Africans in the
Wyandott Convention tfefused to . sign the
Constitution, and will oppose it to the ut
most They protauriced it a modd instru
ment in almost 'very re6peetbut refused
Ha sign it for two reasons. ( 1st, the bounda
ries do not suit them. 2nd, they dislike
fGeapportionment for the first Legislature.
- As- totheboundaries they- wished to
keep the Pike's Peak Gold Regions, and to
annex Southern 'Nebraska; Now- the idea
of jre(ainifig the Gold ; Region in ihejiew
Staiiisimply - absurds-There-iaa vast
uriTnhlibited'a region from
three to five hundred inilss , in widthl be
tween the settlements in Eastern Kansas
end the Gold Region. - Hence there will be
little Intercourse, and still less community
of 'interest arid feeling. ' The Miner3 inte
Gold Region refuse to recognize the Terri
torial Laws, and are framing a Constitution
for themselves. They will form 'a mining
community", while weare essentially agri
cnltaral. ThV."iw$ 'interests;; would be ad
verse' and conflicting., vHow can tw9 work
together except they be agreed?"! 'V h-; v
? - Suppose for a moment that the Gold Re
gions were included in the new State, and
a State Convention was, to be' held to nomi
nate candidates, where , should,- it be. held ?
Why it must be upon the Plains among the
Buffalo, and the delegates - must start off
provisioned armed and equipped for a two
m6jnth8 journey 1 Members of the Legis
lature must travel many hundreds of miles,
and the expenses would be enormous!
Pshaw 1 ' The whole thing is preposterousi
'As 'to Nebraska we do not want her.' , They
have not shared r with us in the dangers of
the past do not sympathize with us in the
present, and would not' in ; the future. " Let
them make a free State for themselves.
With regard to the apportionment, it is
only for a single session, after which we
are to have single Districts, based upon the
census now being taken.-3It was proposed
to base the first apportionment on the,cen
sus, and for that purpose to. chopse by bal
lot three : Commissioners to : make ; the ap
portionment as soon as the ' census returns
should be received. :' But "this :'the Democ
racy were ' bitterly opposed to. Their real
objection to the apportionment ; is that it
does not leave sufficient chance for the mi
nority of the voters to elect a "majority of
the Legislature J '' ' ' ' ,
:' '- The; Gold Mines.
, The com pa ny which .went to the mines
last spring from 142 creek in this county,
have all? returned 7 but two. - We had a talk
a few days ago. with Mr. Ward, one of the
company, and a'man whose word is perfect
ly reliable. He spent six weeks in the mines
in order to- fully satisfy himself , in. regard
to the existence of gold in . paying -quanti
ties. He 8aysthat about one martin a hun
dred is making it pay expenses, while the
other ninety-nine are making nothing. -He
spent 8oma, time in the tiregory ana JacK
son digarings. Jackson admits himself that
he never took out of his "lead," all told,
over 876 worth of dust. It seems that
Gregoryand other interested-, parties suc
ceeded most admirably in humbugging
Horace Greeley. They "salted," or sprin
kled gold dust on their "claims," andjwould
then take Horace, to see them gather the
same gold they, had put -into the earth,
thereby making him believe that they were
working. -immensely rich diggings. Mr.
W. says that there are hundreds of per
sons leaving the mines daily, while but
very few are going in. Such is the sub
stance of Mr. . Ward's statement.
V . r The Eldridge House. : , .
While in Lawrence recently we "put up"
at this excellent House, kept by the El
dridge Brothers; and, must confess that we
were considerably surprised at finding so
extensive an institution of the kind in this
far western country; It is fitted up in mod
ern style and is: furnished with every luxu
ry that conduces to the happiness and com
fort ofits guests, . ,It enjoys the reputation,
and justly too, of being . the best Hotel west
of St. Lovls. .The table is always loaded
with'the best the country affords, the rooms
are' furnished in the latest and best style.
the beds are excellent, the servants obliging
and gentlemanly, . and in " fact nothing is
wanting to make those who stop at "The
Eldridge" feel at home. The Eldridge
Brothers deserve great "credit for their en
ergy and. en terprise and we were. glad to
see that their excellent, hotel was enjoying
"a good run of custom." ' ' t . -
