LETTER IR0 KANSAS.
Lscourros, KANS.s TsaaInTY, -
March 18, 1857. 5
Dear Banner: The agitation resulting from
.the contest between Gov. Geary a-.d Judge Le.
cotpt has almost entirely ceased in the Territo
ry, and been transferred to Washington. The
-Governor left here very suddenly, a few days
since, leaving the impression behind him that he
was going to Fort Leavenworth, for the benefit
of his health; but the next news that we heard
from hint, he was on his way to Washington.
His friends are rather gloomy in view of his
prospects, and I think somielwhat displeased at
his duplicity. We have some private news from
Washington, touching the Kansas policy of Mr.
Buchanan, which perhaps you will have received
ere this retehes you. Among other items, the
most important is the removal of all the more
important oficers. Richardson, of Ilhinois, is
spoken of as Geary's successor, and a South Ca
rolinian as successor to Judge.Cato. Judge Le
conipt and Gen. Calhoun-Surveyor General, and
a good pro slavery man-will also be removed.
Marshall Donaldson's resignation will be received.
Thus the new Administration will come in un
trammeled by those who have in any way been
connected with our late disturbances.
In the meantime, all is not peace and quiet in
our midst. A few of Ossawattamy Brown's out
laws still continue to rob and murder in the low
er part of the Territory. These gentlemen (?)
will, however, soon be brought to an account by
Uncle Sam's troops.
A Free State, or rather an Abolition Conven
tion, was held at Topeka, about a week ago.
Robinson, Reeder and other leaders of the party,
were there, and succeeded in duping' the Conven
tionZ ito. agreeing that they would continue to
disregard the Territorial Laws, to refuse to pay
taxes, allow their census to be taken, or vote at
the ensuing election for a State Constitution.
They depend upon next winater's .Congress to re
eeive their old State Constitution. There is,
however, a considerable party of Free State men
who have given in to the laws, and intend to
vote for Ilelegates to the Territorial Conv'ention.
-Thus they have concluded to adopt the very
course m'ost desired by us to defeat themselves.
This division int their party will have the effect
to make the Convention a representetion of both
.parties, and not enough to be in our way at the
election. Such is about the most probable con
jecture that I can make of our variable politics.
The iummense tide of immigration which is flow
ing in, will not influence the vote, as none will
be allowed a vote who were not here on the 15th
The rapid settling tip of the country, the im
provement of towns, atnd the rise itn property are
really astonishing. This townt has been set back
more than any other by war, and yet the popula
tiotn already rnumbers near a thousand, and va
canat lots-2> by 1401 feet-readily command
from $600 to $800. The improvement in Leav
enworth is even more remtakable, and indeed
would be thoutghtt fabulous in South Carolina. A
short tiume sintc a friend of inei brought~ a va
cant lot thtere for $1.100, antd itn a few mntutes
after sold it for $1,700.
Much valuable lund will soon be in mtarket.
A portion of the Delaw~are Reserve, -10 miles lung
by 10 wide, lying ou the Kaw Riv-er, opposite
tiis plan,' is attracting a good deal of attention.
Over hazlf of it has been settled up in two or
three weeks, on the supposition that it will sootn
be olsen for pre-emuptioni.
The winter has broken,]I think, and farmers are
preparing to break the soil. Let me say to those
who wish to try their fortunes here, that there
is nothin" more certain than that a fortune can
b~e made Yyv'any steady, indtustrious mant, who
will settle'immediatoly on a claim, and go- right

profitable than Corn. 'Te country is healthy,

Faost an article in the Spartanbumrg Express
we learn that Col. Orr positively declintes a re
election to Congress. The Exrpreses says, in no
ticing a short address mnade by Col. Orr, to a
party of young men who hadl honored him with
a serenade, on Tuesday evening the 31st nlt:
"Col. Orr took occasion to express his grati
tude for the renewed miarks of approbation and
esteem which those present had givent him, and
to say that no ciretnmstances in the future, which
he could now conceive of, would itnduce himt to
be a canididate for re-election, but with the per
mission of his constituents, he would reserve his
decision upon this for the future."
Col. Orr would be, if returned to the next

to re-consider his determination to retire from

KANSAS--"" ONE MORE T. THE
The affairs of this now-eelebrated Territory are ap
roaehing a very material crisis-a crisis, upon which
urns the decision of the question : whether Kansas is
A be a free or slave State. The territorial legislature
-ecently determined upon a Convention for the pur
pose of framing a constitution, and the election of
ielegates to that convention is the important issue to
which we allude. Under the constitution thus formed,
Kansas will apply for admission into the Union ; and
the contest will be whether slavery shall be recognised,
>r not, in that constitution.
The bare statement of these facts is enough, we
should suppose, to arouse every Southern community
to the necessity of taking some. active, immediate
steps towards aiding the Southern cause in this pend
The inquiry doubtless presents itself to every one: how
ire we to render this aid ? We answer, by money. The
pro-slavery emigrants in Kansas need help. They in
some instances need the means of subsistence. Enough
af them are now in the territory to carry the election
af Convention delegates on Southern principles, and
they are disposed and determined (if possible) to re
tain and fight the battle out like men. At the same
time they are in difficulty, undergoing the hardships
)f frontier life with little or no means, bearing (for
principle's sake) the brunt of danger, and encounter
.g the discomfort of actual penury. In a word, the
host of them are poor men laboring bravely in our
muse, and they have a right to assistance at the hands
>f the Southern people. Their being poor, is not to
Ie used as a reason for under-valuing their patriotic
services. A few there are, we know, who sneeringly
leclare their belief that no Kansas emigrant. even
,rom the South, is to be trusted upon the slavery ques
tion unless he be a slave-holder. This doctrine is not
nly pernicious in its tendency but totally erroneous.
All accounts concur in representing the Southern men
now in Kunas as devotedly true to their section and
the institutionsi of their section, not one in i thousind
>f them who would not rick his life in fighting for
those institutions, and many of whom haveialready
actually done so. They are poor, it is true; but they
ire spirited at the same time, and as fully imbued
with Southern principles as the wealthiest slave-hold
rs amongst us. The very fact of their having thrown
themselves into this perilous breach should satisfy
every caviller upon this point. The consciousness of
this fact hus made every emigrant of them a living,
cting, earnest advocate of our Southern cause. How
ever little of his thoughts may have been given to the
tubject before, now he feels himself to be one of the
xponents of Southern Rights in a great struggle be
're th whole country. His bosom is fired with the
den. iis love of the old home institutions he left
behind him is made to glow with a genial warmth
which few of us who remain listlessly by our Southern
ire-sides have ever realized. He is, in short, the em
uodiment tf a principle and proudly feels himself
uch. And poor though he may he, this conscious
ess. thi. feeling places him as far above the influen
'es of bribery or corruption as though he had fifty
ve, at his beck and bidding. Nu, no-it is ingrati
ude in any Southerner thus to suspect his poor South.
rn brethren in Kansas, brethren who have gone to
tattle for Southern Rights and Southern Institutions
t the calls of patriotism and of honor. Their pover
y, their destitution in this distent territory, is the very
eason why every one of us who has the means should
>roaptly administer to their necessities. They need
ur aid this moment, and they deserve our fostering
are. The distinguished ATCISOs tells the South
hat such is the fact. Other prominent men in the
orth-West toll us so too, and appeal to the South in
half of her men in Kansas Territory. Is not this
nough ? Iteasons of policy may forbid their giving
iarticulars. lBut their general and reiterated declara
ion is, that the Southern cause in Kansas needs help
n the way of money contributions. They' make this
iclaration with pressing earnestness; andi they are
ionorable gendlemen all. Is not this enough for us to
now ? Can we ask more, under the circumstances,
han to be certain that our contributions aro seriously
eeded, and that those who will receive them are high
ainded and honest men solemnly pledged to apply all
uefunds to the wants of the Southern pro-slavery
itizens of Kansas ?
We repeat then, that now is the tim. r w a. ti i -
emething in thitmatter of dutr-- - "While ias ca e
-day." let every district in South Carolina send up
ier contribution to this good cause. Besides the re
ef it will afford to our Southern settlers in Kansas,
will cheer and re-animate their hearts by demonstra
ing to them that they are remembered and cared for
>y the people at home. The refleetion will impart to
bemi new energy, new ardor. Thcy will cnnvass for
he coming election with increased dilligenee and as
iduity. They will go up to the polls tike "an army
vith banners;" and Kansas will be the full sister of

THE~ WAR OF TILE GIANTS.
The New, and the Courier, of Charleston, are fight
ing over the Right of Peaceable Secession. Broad
side after broadside have they been pouring into each
other for the last week or two in rapid succession. It
recalls to our mind, by a partial analogy betweeu the
two eases, the fight of the Gurrierre and the Constitu
tion, the News representing the Constitution of course.
It appears to us, at this distance from the combatants,
that the News has been entirely triumphanut and de
serves to a'av1 apied toit the following stanzas of
the old song which celebrates the famous sea-fight al
The first broad.,ide we pour'd
Carried their mainmast by the board,
Which made this lofty frigate look abaudon'd, oh
Then Dacres (Mr. Yeadon of the Courier) shook
And to his off'cers said,
Lord ! I did'nt think thiselipper was so handy, oh.
Our second told so well
That their fore and wizen fell
Which doused the royal ensign so handy, oh !
" By George," says he, " we're done,"
And they fired a lee gun,
While the Yankees struck up "Yankee doodle
We dont know whether " Daecres" has yet actually
"gone on board
To deliver up his sword;"
but we think he might as well do so under the palpa
ble circumstances of his defeat. We have no doubt
he would be treated in as gallant style, as was English
"Daeres" by the noble captain of the Constitution,
when this latter officer is reported by our poet thus:
" Oh. keep your sword," says Hull,
Since it only makes you dull,
Come cheer up, let us take a little brandy, oh !"
Yes, take : drink, father Yeadon, and forget the de
feat. It will lie all the same fifty years hence.
Seriously, we regard the arguments of the Courier
as not only superficial but antagonistic to the most
saving elements of our governmental organization;
while -the Nets has both reason and facts on its side,
and is truly representing the principles and policy of
South Carolina. Will not the Carolina press speak
out, Yea or Nay ! and let the world see whether or not

THIE LAST SERMON ON HOOPS.
A " wife and muother" writes to the New-York Tri
bune, a more practical sermon about hoops than we
have yet seen. The question may be considered set
ted. She says :
During the cooking controversy which has especial.
ly raged in The Weekly Tribune, I have kept silent
and learned all that I could from you and the, various
inividuals whot have contributed thteir views andI ex
periences to that important subjet. But ini thte Tri
bune, February 21, a subjee't of equal importance is
mentioned in a manner not to be patiently borne by
womaly nature-I allude to "hoops." You do not
like them; very well; you do not wear them, I sup
pose, conse rently you know nothing of their conve
niene. If I tell you that a hoop-skirt relieve. the
hips and bodf of a load which would be necessary in
its absence, you will say, why necessary either with
'r without hoops? In reply, I would ask you how
would you like to see the streets of New York City
ornamented with women in pantaloons ? And do you
not think that they (pantaluons, of course) would be
quite as becoming as drapery which shows the figure
with every movement?
No woman ventures, unless compelled by necessity,
into the street when the windl blows, if scant drapery
be the reigning fashion. No true man would make
remarks abotut the flying skirt., but there are plenty
of miserable wretches who would ; and but few high
minded women have independence enough to brave
the jeers of such creatures. A person can walk with
much greater ease with a hoop oven if the same amount
of clothing be worn ; there is a buoyancy in the bal
loon like structure which is a great relief to all who
are unfortunate enough to wear skirts. You say that
the Empress Eugenie, for purposes of " hown," first
started the, to you, "terriblefashion." Pray, do let
the Empress Eugenic's and your wife's, if you have
n. .a your ua.gad.' and ewary body's purpos.
alone. If women are foolish enough to get married,
do please let their dress alone. If they contrive to
appear in public one-four4b of a year at a time, do
let them do so.

From thy far off home above?
Where all is bright and radiant,
And God himself is love !
Canst thou soothe and cheer me, Mother,
Canst thou hope-inspire my soul,
And with thy Heaven-born influence,
Lead my spirit to its goal I
Didst thou never smile, my Mother,
When in dark temptation's hour,
Thou hast seen thy child, triumphant,
Overcome the evil power I
Then didst thou shout In gladness,
With thy heart attuned to praise ?
While myriads joined hosannas loud
Which, Mother, thou didst raise !
Dost thou hear me, sainted Mother,
When 1 pray in accents wild,
To God the great Creator,
To deal gently with thy child 1
From thy " home, sweet home" in Heaven,
Where bright angels with thee dwell,
Thou wouldst teach the truthful lesson,
That " Ie doeth all things well!"
Then cheer me onward, Mother,
Thy child both guard and guide
And pray that I may humbly
In our Saviour's love confide.
And when God calls me, Mother,
Oh ! I'd have thee hov'ring nigh,
To bear me upward, Mother dear,
To live with thee on high.

KANSAS AND HER CAUSE.
CoL. SMass,-Dear Sir: You have doubtless
learned from the public prints that by an act of
the Kansas Legislature, just adjourned, an election
is shortly to be held for members of a Convention
to frame a Constitution with the view to the early
admittance of that Territory into the Union.
The Census has already been taken, and all per
sons not registered by or before the 15th of March
past, are barred from voting in said election.
Governor GEAnY has resigned, and ROBErT 3.

tion 1 Sir, we are now called upon to meet this
issue. Let us do it as becomes men and Kansas
will be saved to the South forever-the rampant
once more prevail.
We have piedged ourselves, here, in Kansas, and
everywhere elste, to admit Kansas with whatever
Constitution she might adopt. No doubt now
exists but a Constitution of some kind will now
be adopted. The peop~le arc tired living without
law and protectionl for their livcs and property,
and will vote for anything rather thtan have a re
currencee of last year's troubles. Fromt my own
observations and all the information which I have
been able to gather fronm other sources. I am coni
fident that our party will succeed. if the South
will only be true to herself we arc sure of it. Let
us then be up andl n-doing.

troubles, Messrs. krcemsoN, STaIsayit.uW, Ries

epenise. Thte Commiit tee lhad solemn assurances
given thmem by the whole South that they should be
sustained in their hour oif trouble, and at this,

of such persons.
Put the ball now in motion, and let it roll on

Tint COMMERCIAL BANK OF BRUNswWCK.-The
Times & Sentinel says : We notice that a corres
pondent of the Ch ronical & Sentiuel makes
some inquiries as to the character of the commer
cial Bank of Brutnswick, and the editors of that
paper are unable to answer them satisfactorily.
nKowing all the stockholders, we take pleasure
iimparting our information to the public.
The Commercial Bank of Brunswick was char
tered hy the last Legislature with capital stock
$100,00, all of which was taken and is now
owned by Messrs. Henry Moffet, Charles J.
Moffet and P. J. Phillips, of Columbus, Ga.,
and Messrs Thomas G. aloffet and George N.
Phillips, of Brunswick Ga., and Abram Pillips,
of Ste...t conntyeogan,. all of whom are
regarded as men of business capacity and strict
integrity and are worth not less than $4000,
and are liable, individually, for the debts o/the
Bank,-by the terms of the charter.
We are reliably informed that.$50,000 in g ld
has been paid into the vaults of the Bank. The
bills are redeemable at the Bank of Savannah,
With these facts before us, we say emphatical
ly that the Bank of Brunswick is not a wild cat,
but as safe and solvent a Bank as 'there is in
WALKER'S PoSITION AND PRosPECTS.-The
following concise statement of Walker's posi
tion at the latest dates is from the correspon
dence of the New Yor1 Commercial Adyertiser:
Walker is strongly fortified at Rivas, and will
defend it at all hazards, although he haS only a
force of 600 men, and is getting short .of -pro.
visions. He is hemmed in with 3000 Costa
Ricans, and the States of Honduras, Salvador,
and San Jose are furnishing and have forwarded
3000 more to join the Costa Ricans, making a
total of 6000 troops of the allied army. Wal
ker is in a critical situation, and' un1fss he is
immediately re inforced, his chances are small
of gaining another battle. He will maintain his
position and hold out as long as possible, and
his men will sell their lives dearly before they
will be taken, as no quarter will be given by the
allies. The news that came by the Tennessee
was so conflicting that no reliance could be
placed on the various reports. What I send
now is derived from a disinterested passenger,
and you will find it correct.
WATER-PROOF TEXTILE FAnRIcs.-Take one
pound of wheat bran and one ounce - of glue,
and boil them in three gallons of water in a tin
vessel for a half hour. 1Now lift the vessel from
the fire and set it aside for ten minutes; during
this period the bran will fall to the bottom, lear
in a clear liquor above, which is to be poured
o and the bran thrown away; one pound of bar
soap cut into small pieces is to be dissolved in
it. The liquor may be put on the fire in the tin
pan, and stirred until all the soap is dissolved.
In another vessel one pound of alum is dissolved
in half a gallon of water; this is added to the'
soap-bran liquor while, it is boiling, and all is
well stirred ; this forms the water-proofing liquor.
It is used while cool. The xtile fabric to be
rendered water proof is immersed in it, and
pressed between the hands until it is perfectly. -
saturated. It is now wrung, to squeeze out as
much of the free liquor as possible ; then shaken
or stretched, and hung up to dry in a warm -
room, or in a dry atmosphere out doors. When
dry, the fabric or cloth; so treated will repel rain
and moisture' but allow the air or perspiration
to pass through it. .
The alum, gluten, gelatine and soap unite to
gether, and form an insoluble compound, which
coats every fibre of the textile fabric, and when
dry, repels water like the natural oil in the fea
thers of a duck. There are various substances
which are soluble in water singly, but when
combined form insoluble compounds, and vice
versa. Alum, soap and gelatine are soluble in
water singly, but form insoluble compounds when
united chemically. Oil is insoluble in water
singly, but combined with caustic soda or potash
it forms soluble soap. Such are some of the
usefnl curiosities of chemistry. -
WE HEAR BiT ONE REPORT from all who use
Perry Davis' Vegetable Pain Killer, and that is,
that its wonderful power 'in relieving the most
severe pain has never been equalled.
A YoUNG LADT SLANDERE.-At the recent
Cpurt of Common Pleas for Greenville District
there was a case of slander-a foul slander, on
a young, innocent and beautiful school girl, just
verging into womanhood. She brought her ac
tion, lyher father, in vindication of her charac
ter, and a Greenville jury awarded her the sum
of four thousand dollars. We hope this verdict
will show the world the estimate put on female
character by a Greenville jury. The defendant
was a man of ,roperty, and hc fled the countrT,
with his fatmilv, liut the verdict shall overtake
hin. Not one dollar of which, however, is the .
plaitiff disposed to touch; laut her counsel have
not the same delicacy of feelig or repugnance
to the touch of the defendant' money. After
