It waa an oft-repea?ed wkh of Franklin that he < >>uld
be permtttcd to visit tbe aarth at atated perioda after
death, to observe the injprove.n-ie.iit* of aaienoe and tne
progreaa of moral priuciple, which he fondly bebeved
v.. ? >? dtetined to go conatartly forward. It ia matter
for curions rt-flection what Franklin would think eould
he raiae hia head from the grave to-day and bohold tlie
condition of hia country, that inatead of Slavery having
paated away, aa he auppoeed it wonld, it has jrrea'ly
inereaaed; that it ia no ionger regardsd aa an evu; tbat
freedom, and Free Statea, and Ireeosen bave liecome
odioua. and Slaverv popnlar; the tone and temper of
the Government afi perverted and changed; and wliile
Freedom ia left to ahift for herself, the etru?<leiato
etrengtten and pcrpctuate tbe foundationa of Slavery,
l>v every cniiiiing davice of bnman akill, and every
eflort of* human power. It ia impoeaible to imagine
what Dr. KiHiiklin would think of theae thinga; he
was a believer in tlie perfectibility of man, and might
doubt the evidence of hia eenaea. But there waa
auotlit r father of ihe Kepublic, who, conld he look ont
upon the aoene, would aee nothing a*toniabing in the
pageant lhat aweepa aloDg. No. if Mr. JeBer
aou were here to-day, aud heard tboae who pro
feaa to be blB follower*, d?i)o_ncing his prmck
plea, proclaJming him ignorant of the Govern?
ment ne had made; that hia own great work.
ihe ordinanc* of 1787, tbat for which he most honored
liuueelf and wa* moat hoOored in hia dav. waa a viola
tiou of the Conatitu'ion, a treaaouable olow at 8outh
cm rights: if he ahould hear that be had robbed the
vast territory of the North-Weat of ita brighteat jewel
wben be prohibited Slavery tberein; that he had ruined
tboae noble Statea of Obio, Indiana, IUinoia, Michjgan,
and Wiacorsin, when he had made tbem free, eelf-sap
porting. and aelf depending; bad degraded tbe. nntoid
millio.a who are to inhabit tbo*e majeatic common
wealtlta, while tbe waUrs of tlie great lakea shall
swell the thundera of Niagara he might mourno>er
thee* tiibga, but wonld dieeover nothing in them at
wur with nis opinions of mankind. No one knew bet
iec ihan Mr. Jetf_ruon tbe iorc* of party, the rage of
paaaion, and ihirat of power which sometimes control
ibe conduct of men. Hnt let no oDe auppoae hie patri
otic ardor would fail, cr bia heroic spirit would bate or
cower bi tore thia wild toruado whieb is howliuK
through tbe land. Unmoved by theae arrAVB and
threuts of diasolution, Jefferaon would point bia
coumrtmen to the git-nt principles of the Govern?
ment;" be would Ull them that in Ihe rvrogress of
tne inatitutiona nothing is ever poaitivefy nxed or
certainly BVCarVI that the eluuents of aocial ordar
are alw'ays id motion; that parties and party con
flictB are to rin- and fall and thre-aien and pnrsne
each e.ther. like the wavea of orean, forever. He
would tell them to do their dnty well, and not to fear.
That power uuwatched wdl "ateal away from the
" hands of the many to the few." that though " error
?' ie harmlees wben trutU ia left free to combat it " yet
" etoraal rigUoaaa is the price of hberty." That Bach
would be the apirit of Jettereon, if here to-day, noue
tan donbt. My frifnda, we shonld d'rect our counaels
m noderation, but in lLrmueas. Let us deal with our

their real nghta. and mect their upjust demands with

THE TERRIBLE DROl'TH IS KANSAS.
Correapoud-nce of The N. V. Tribune.
MoiND Cm, Kanaat, July 7, 18o0.
Thk TftmiaiE c-omes to me regular every
week, vet vou do not aay one word about this terrible
tlroutb that -we poor moptale are- conapelled to eubmit
to. It 18 near or quite 1'2 months old. For the laat
four or five mouthe we have not bad rain enough to
baidly wet the ground. The conaeqnence ia, there
will be no cr pa of any kind in Southern Kanata. Our
eorn k near or quiie dead; our grasa for bay ia entinly
oi t of the question, for there ia noue?tbe hot sun haa
emiiely deatroyed it. What the peaple are going to do
for soniething t) eat, God only kt.owe. We are almoet
a- had ofl a_ Cupt Hiky was iu the midat of tbe great
African de.eit, wilh the burning pun over his head and
the hot earth heneatb hia feet, and no water, no food,
and BO hope in tbe fnture. at kaat for ub, for onr < ropfi
are paet enre now. Onr neighbors can be seen in con
verasti n about what we are gokg to do. Why, they
-av. twelve montha we have prayed for rain, yet
ii('_e came; aeven montbs for a Homeste-ad Bill, yet
none came; and three long yeara for better times, and
vet no chanueonly for tbe worae. Now, Mr Greeley,
icn.k at na, for it ia yrr I am 'alkirg l0| and you have
sea n ua?j ou know how we looked one year ago, with
all the bright proepect bef jn; ut, w ith green fielda of
grain, and onr rieh pTairiei covered witb ita bigh,
wavering graj-e, and every few daya a ahower. Oh !
how l.ri/.'ht the bopM of all then: tnt, alaa, poor,
bopeleaenow. Hurk! hear me tell Gnd's trnth. As I
wiite in my hoiiee, the wind flaps overme; thesun
l.eata it ao, that the wind almost burn* me; my wife k
i ow roasikg eggB on tbe 6to_e Btepa io frout of rny
houte; the etove aud tin boiler are too hot to bear my
bands on them, BtanaiiiK in the hocae where thr sun
catEot tciucb them?tbey are hot by the wind blowmg
on them throngh t_e oj*n door. Wby, every flap of
?he wind ia like tbe beat of fire from a burakg
I bave juat abnt tb? door to keep tlie hot wind
fiom blo *icg on me, ao that I can write. To say that
it haa not rained for twelve months would not be tell
ing thetruth; bnt \D aay ttiHt not mre than four or
five ineheaof rain had fallen in that time, would be
learly or quite true. Now. for O-od's eake. what are
111 peoile to do ? We car.'t atay here without food for
ouratlvea and cattle. Many of na bave not got money
?o pay for pur land, ort.- ytt uway aith t<> tay imthing
