element. The principles which- form the

.They may be forgotten or disregarded for
b while-ths wild .waves of popular excite

Vj ats tlam, but there will be a time for a

't J erral as the movement which is now against
. -til ,t The srreat atrewrtb and power of the Dem-
. t. ' - i ocratic party lies in its principles. The doc
' t, t Vinee to' which they adhere are enwoven
..... eo with the very frame work of our govern
ment, and though the advocates of relig
iona persecution, of aectarian prejudice,
of . sectional jealousy, of unequal laws
may- find a seat in the national councils,
1 they t will never dart to change the pur
pose, and spirit of our civil and religious
ci r institutions ; or, if they should so far disre
'0 gsrd the rights and interests of tbe people as
'r to earry their despotic principlea into prac
diid tice, their course will meet the indignant re
proof of the people whose rights they have
'! '. betrayed. : "
The Fusion Know Nothing party now ar
' ' rsyed against w, is not half so formidable
p.-,ras it would be, had their mnjorities been
"niucb tess than they really are. It does not
stand forth to the world, as the representa
"r' tlve of great political principles, but is
simply a sort of partnership formed between
the different fragments of old and broken
down parties with the addition of a few dis-
appointed candidates from the Democratic
V3rurtnks".;' It can be dissolved whenever any
"one of its innumerable factions becomes dis
' ' satisfied with the arrangement. Having no
""''" common bond' of union, it will fall to pieces
. ' from its own weight.
' Again we say, there is no ground for dis
' ' pouragement. Those who have been Dem
ocrats g:mply because ours baa been the
stronger side, w ill of course join the fusion
;" 'party, but those who are Democrats from I
'.principle will not only remain true to their .
i"' political faith, but will be awakened to new j
' ' and iriore vigorous exertion. Long prosper- i
" ' ity had rendered us careless and indiflorent. I

our energies, and bring us nearer together

(Free Soil) has been elected for the short
our numbers increase, it becomes more od
more evident that Kansas will, be free. I
have heard of no slaves being brought into
the country, and though there are many pro-lavrnr-
incomers from Missouri and Ken
tucky, their number is far exceeded by that
of the emigrants rrora tne tree ouies. i na
fanaticism of. the Inhabitants of . Platte
countv displavs itself with marked and even
ridiculous bitterness, as they see this state of
things. Violent denunciation or every tiling
Northern or "Yankee," ia everywhere heard,
and fills the columns of the newspapers.
So far has this gone, that in Weaton some
symptoms of re-action have become mani
fest. During the summer, this littlo city
was constantly threatening with Summary
visitations of lynch law, emigrants from the
North. "A Self-Defensive Association" was
formed, and passed, among other resolutions,
one pledging members to enter into Kansas
at the earliest summons, and remove by
force of arms all persons sent out by Emi
grant Aid Societies. Seeing the ill repute
into wbicn Weston was getting itseii oy
such fanatical ebulitions, and that in fact
her business interests were beginning to
suffer, number of her most prudent citizens
summoned a public meeting for the purpose
putting the town in truer position. This
was held about a week ago, and was quite
large and respectable. Imputations of Ab
olitionism, the great bugbear in these parts,!
were disclaimed, but at the same time reso
lutions were passed declaring Kansas to be
the common property of the whole nation,
and that settlers from all parts had tbe right
to enter therein and become citizens. They
urged the traders of Western Missouri to
purchase their goods in any market, either
at the North or South, and not, as had been
recommended at publio meetings, in Platte
county, to confine their patronage to South
The holding of this meeting Is an inter
esting fact, as indicating that good has after
all some sway on the frontier. But it must
be admitted that settlers from the North do
not experience the most liberal or kindly
treatment, so far, at least, as the expression
of feelins; is concerned, either in passing
thiouL'h Missouri or in locating themselves
on her immediate frontier. A great deal of
bluster is heard, but it is in truth nothing
but bluster, and there is no more real danger
for even the most extreme Abolitionist in
establishing himself in Kansas than in Min
nesota. One finds around him in Kansas
settlers of every shade and sentiment on
the subject of slavery, though the majority
are, as I have just intimated, on the northern
side of the question. It is no doubt the most
politic course for emigrants at present tu
express themselves with discreetness and
caution on the subject, for the language of
northern emigrants especially is eagerly
made to serve as a justification of the intol
erance and violence of the slaveholding
The work of laying out and building the
town of Leavenworth, three miles from the
fort, goes on, but not with as much alacrity
as is desirable. This arises from the pauci
ty of laborers and mechanics. Carpenters
at the new town receive $2,50 per day and
their board, and their number is very small
even at this price. The first house has just
been finished, and is the printing establish
ment of the Kansas Herald. The first nuin
ber of this journal appeared two days ago
and makes a very creditable appearance .
It is Democratic in politics aud neutral on
the slave question. Caleb Cushing's opinion
adverse to pre-emption rights on the Dela
ware land, in which this town is situated,
has lately caused no little excitement among
the shareholders and speculators. If his
doctrine be fully maintained, no title obtain
ed from the managers of this town associa
tion will be of any validity. It is, however,
confidently maintained that some arrange
ment will be made by the Government re
linquishing the ownership to the association
in the same manner as if it were land sub
ject to pre-emption.
A great deal of impatience is manifested
at the long delay of the Governor and the
officers of the Territory. It seems to be the
general opinion that no election for the
Legislature will be held for some months.
The later the better for the cause of its
Though the drouth in this section has
been severe, the corn on the two large GoV
ernment farms connected with the fort is
considered to be of nearly the average yield.

March 31st, 1854 two years afterwards
the number of valuable dead letters reach

1 Extracts of a letter "from Elder James
Lewie to Elder George A. Smith,, dated Pa-
rowan. Irod county,' Utah! June 3, 1854:
"A few reflections upon scenes and .ideas
gathered in our lands may not come' amiss.
In California there are about seventy-five
tnousuna Miinatnen, generally in Ban rran-
cisco and the mines. .. They are called the
beat cooks, washers, and servants in that
country. ' They are capable of performing
and enduring more labor and fatigue than
any other people in that island, and have no
apirit to retaliate, for the many insults and
injuriea they receive. They, like the Jews,
are a distinct people and work In squads
entirely by themselvesin the mines, and save
every farthing. . Their living is brought
from China by their own merchants; and all
their trading is done among .themselves, and
they wear their own peculiar costume; few
adopt the dress of this country'. ' '
'In San Francisco whole streets are oc
cupied by them. They have their own ho
tel keepers, wholesale and retail merchants,
grjeers, and physicians. In fact they do
their own business independent of others.
After obtaining sufficient to make them in
dependent at home, thev usually return
l'OO ! Thev take littlo or no notice of strangers,
l."0 j only when for their interest: are ereatlv ad
dicted to gambling, and haye gaming estab
lishments and houses of prostitution pub
licly open day and night like their neigh
bors. Thousands of women are brought
from China to this market, hired by the
moRe wealthy of. their own countrymen, for
ten, and often three, dollars per head for
each year. On any money advanced for
outfit or passage, if not paid the first year, it
doubles the second on principal and inter
est. Young females of from fourteen to six
teen, as well as children, are bought in Chi
na at from thirty to fifty dollars each, and
brought to California to swell the already
enormous amount of crime prostitution, de
gradation, and corruption.
, 'Thousaiids of loborers, are hired in Chi
na for the wages of that country,, (a few
cents per day,) und their passage paid; and
they work in the mines their term of service,
(generally for years,) after which they are
sent home; tliui one class preys upon anoth
er to enrich themselves. I was informed
that thousands are thus in bondage, under
their different overseers, sent out for this
"In California there are already large and
extensive establishments for the sale of the
fine and costly fubnes, as well as many man
uiacuireu articles, snu paintings of rare
workmanship and of exceeding fine finish,
which find their why into the houses, or are
worn by the wealthy. .
"I visited- many of their leading men to
ascertain, if possible, the situation of their
country, and gather books to forward the
work in which I was enguged; but I found
they were not disposed to give any informa
tion, and seemed surprised that we were de
sirous ot Knowing anything about them,
though few could speak the English so as
to be understood. They require u high price
for information, and carry their distinctness
to a great length. In their dealing with
others they are very unscrupulous.
"I found the Chinese in California with a
prejudice of feeling caused by their ill
treatment from its citizens, which is not con
fined to miners, hut includes their l?gisla
tors. They are traduced, vilified, and abus
ed on every hand; yet they thrive, increase,
particularly relating to trade They are
controlled by men of intelligence, and are
far from being what Christians call them;
for their ideas of the Supreme Being their
Father, their government, the laws and ob
ligations they are under to each other, with
their code of morals, are in advance of the
sectarian world, and have their peculiarities,
which seem truly strange to us.
'.'They are rapidly increasing, as many
of the barriers' are being broken . down
which have so long deprived them of asso
ciating with other and neighboring nations.
Undoubtedly upon their return to their own
land, they will carry more liberal principles,
which, with the extension of the' spirit of
liberty and reform pervading almost every
land, will shortly, under the directing hand
of the Almighty, who has said by his ser
vants that when the Gospel, the reorganiza
tion Of his kingdom in the last days, should
commence, then his work shouldbegin among
all nations. This is truly the case with
that people. :' '
"After completeing our arrangements, we
left San Francisco in the bark San Van
Hoome, March 9, and arrived at Hong Kong
after a passage of forty-nine days."
A Lest Yessel Come to Light Her
rrcwjrjsirdercel by tbe mormons.
The Buffalo 'Refuliic of yeaterday aays:
A rumor has been current for several days
on our, docks that Jbe adwoner Robert Wil
lis, whose sudden disappearance on Lake
Michigan last fall was noticed at the time,
and of which no intelligence was ever after
wards received, had been captured by the
Mormons, of. Beaver Island, her captain and
crew massacred, and tbe vessel unloaded
and scuttled. At the time of her loss the
Willis waa bound from Chicago to this port
with a cargo of wheat, and was last seen by
the schoooer Lansing, on the 22d of Novem
ber, off Sheboygan, bound up the lake in a
very heavy, north-east gale. .The news of
her capture, &.C., is said to have been receiv
ed through a Mormon who escaped from the
community at Beaver Itfahd,' and who has
made oath to the facts above stated. It is
also said that the U. S, steamer, Michigan
has been sent to the Island ti look into tbe
-A foreign ' correspon-
' Prom tho Now Trt KxpreM.
The Signal dun.
Amidst all the terrible incidents attend-
ant upon the destruction of the Arctic, which
we have been receiving these two days paat,
there is one that impresses us with a feeling
of awe and admiration, and shows sll the
world that tbe age of heroes ia not yet al
together gone by. We refer .to the young
man, whose post of duty throughout all that
trying scene was the firing off a signal gun,
at intervals, in the hope of attracting the
attention of vessels from a distance to the
scene of disaster. Whilo all around him
were death and despair, in bold relief there
he stood, (like Hope herself,) with the calm
determination of a true hero, discharging
gun after gun, until the gallant ship went
down beneath the waves. Here waa a cou
rage and a manliness u defiance of death
and an adhesion to duty we might walk
over the most famous battle-fields in histo
ry, to look for and not find., The soldier
who braves the King of Terrors at the can
non's mouth, is animated by a species of
courage improvised for the 'occasion, by the
"pomp and circumstance ' around mm.
There can be properly no cowards when
men are drawn up in battle arrav, with
drums beating, colors flying, and thoughts
of reward and promotion flitting . through
the brain if a victory is won. Dastards dare
anything then under such stimulants. But
the bravery of tho battle-field is not the
bravery which was shown by our young he
ro of the wreck. The former is a species
of unnatural courage it is of an animal
nature; but tho latter was moral courage of
the highest and noblest kind. With his
lighted mutch lie seemed to stand, on the
quarter deck of that devoted ship, hurling
defiance, as it were, in the very jaws of
death itself. Others were desperately
struggling for life; he alone seemed to have
resolved to demonstrate how a man may die
at his post of duty, 'Without dread or fear,
in 'the midst of horrors that would make
most men cowards. Awfully impressive,
indeed "-terribly melo-dnmiatic was the
last scene of all, in w-liich o(ir young hero
shone forth, wringing exclamations of ad
miration even from lips that were buffeting
the hungering waters, then murmuring for
their prey. Stewart Holland ffor that
was his "name) "could not be induced to
leave the ship; his post was 'at the gun,
from first to last, firing signals; he kept fir
ing that gun at intervals till the ship went
down. We saw him in the very act of firing
as the v 'ssel disappeared below the waters. '
' In Greek or Roman days such a man, if
he had not awarded him the honors of defi
cation, would have had Senates decreeing
him statues and monuments everywhere, to
commemorate ' his' deeds,, that his example
might not be lost upon posterity." His con
duct is given a now luster, contrasted with
that of the cravens, who, only anxious to
save their own lives, shut their eurs to the
shrieks of the helpless women and children
that were grappling' Willi horrors all around
and about them. - Honor, then, eternal hon
or, tu him who went down to death a con
queror of death! i That noble ship hud ma

than he. ' ' " , , , ;

' A Railroad Train Arested for Debt.
At Manchester, N. H., on Friday last, just as
a locomotive and cars, with about twenty
pussengers, were getting resdy to leave the
railroad depot, a Sheriff stepped upon the
platform and levied upon the train, iri virtue
of a writ by which all the property of the road
was attached upon nine suits for debt amoun
ting to $50,000, originally contracted by the
New Hampshire Central Railroad, but, due
from the Merrimacand Connetlcut road since
the former u as merged into tho latter.' At the

servants simply removed the covers, and
then left the room. The hours for' meals,

among the better classes, are, breakfast at
nine o'clock, lunch at one, and dinner at
seven; the old late supper being mostly done
