'in the horizon. Ao4 the vigor and watch
fullness of thai spirit is st.ll displayed.
And one 'iKed but travel the short road
from this pface' to note' as a' sample, the
evidences id the aimut complete drain

Scenes which meet the eye continually.
Aiid let the thirsty traveller cail at the
cabin or village inn, and note the abscence
'of die Hi met hex, and in reply to question

that "Kp has gone to life war," or "Jim,"
or "Tom'' to b a soldier. Truly, the text

most of then havenow recovered, or are

gerously sick, Miller, and he is to return
home wifb his father to-morrow.
The political horizon in these parts is
commencing to be darkenexLby the pros
r ective quarrels, and wrangles of the op
posing candidates, as yet, there has been
but one set of candidates, (Republican),
nominated 'for tKe'county and legislative
offices, bmthereisadjstate. (sour grapes)
amoi.gthe people of the city, aud we pre
sume the disaffection extends throughout
the county to the Sta'te ticket nominated
at Topeka, on the 17th ult., they claim that
they were there swindled, and their local
interests thus imperilled, ?n therefore
they will go the bolters, or "Union" ticket.
The business houses of the cityChese-
brough, Stebbins & co.. Theo. Barthlow
keep a flourishing trade, and are worth
what they are constantly receiving, an ex
tensive and increasing patronage. The
Commercial House, is still under the man

one of the most desirable stepping places

TELEGRAPHIC DISPA TCHES.
Another terrible battle has been fought
near Corinth. Resulting in the complete
success of the federal arms. We publish
the official dispatches dated Oct. 5th':
Washington Qct. 5.
Mjjor General Halleck :
Yesterday the rebels under Price, Van
Dorn and Lovell, were repulsed from th ir
attack upon Corinth with great slaughter.
The enemy-are in full retreat leaving their
dead and wounded on the field.
Roaencrans telegraphs that the loss is
seiioua on our side, par. lcularly in officers
but bears no comp4nson with that of the
Gen Hackleman fell while leading his
Gen. Ogleaby is dangerously wounded.
Gen. McPherson with his command,
reached Corinth yesterday. Gen. Roasen
crans pursued the retreating rebels this
morning, and should they attempt to move
towards Bolivar will follow to that place.
Gen nurlbut is at the uatchie river with
5 000 or 6,000 men. It is no doubt wiui
the pursuing column. From 700 to 1.000
prisoners are left in our hands.

Ma. Editor : I am informed that the
Delegates ot ttie Republican, and Union
parties' for th.s Senatorial District, met in
convention a Marysvilie, fn 8th iust.,
ana nominated me as the caudidate at the
comincT election ior State Senator.
I deem it proper therefore to thus pub
licly express my gratitude for th&e high
consiuerations of respect, and the confi
dence the members of the Convention re
pose in me, oy thus presenting my name
the people ot this District, as the proper
person to represent their interests in that
Branch of the Legislature.
A hd feel under greater obligations,
from the fact, that there are others, if not
better qualified for the position, have re
sided longer in the District, are better
known to the people, and consequently
more worthy thehonors thus coj.ferred.
I have, however, the consolation of
kuowiug" that I have ndt acted the part of
a political wire-Worker toseture the place,
but have always faithfully asserted, evea
since wag first solicited to beime a can
didate, that if any of the gentlomen to
whoa I have here referred were nomina
ted by the convention, I vould abide' its
decision, and heartily lend him my sup
port aud use all my inluence to secure his
I think I can realize also that the ser

to which tbcgcpnvention have put me io

with any man, or any party whatever
name it might assamethatyalsfarorablr
to a vigorous prosecution of the war for
the Union; and; the. speed'; and- saccessfiil;
termination of this wicked rebellion.
The policy 1 shall pursue if elected, in
reference to'the local' questions vis$ are
Ijkely to agitate tile? rnert 'eession ofi odrJ
State Legislature, which will 'be -"of 'vital
importance to the people of this District I
here publicly state, without Hesitation or
ambiguity. And what: I'cai.didly consid
er of the grea'est bigrjificance to this't'sec
tion of oiir State, is our Railr ad iuterests
and Tarn decidedly in Ctvor of th Hender
son amendment io th Pacific R. ;R. Bill
raised at the Inst session of Congress.
And 1 faithfully 'promise to ue all my
influence, make every exertion in my pow
er, and adopt every ''honorable' means in
case of my election, ' to ' secure ' a charter
from bur State Legislature for a Rail-Road
to start froni St Joseph on the Missouri
river and run west through the Northern
tier of counties.
There is anotner interest th'at I consider of
much importance to the people of this Dis
tri t, a measura which the Kansas Legis
lature in its wisdom once granted, but
wnich was Tetoed by a prejudiced and sel
fish Governor, I mean the 'ocation of the
State University ac Manhattau,andto that
interest doT heartily subscribe, and that 1
will be assiduous in my labors and 'uritir
iug in my efforts for the accomplishment
of th a object'.' i
As io other measures that might arise
for the action of 'the ' Legislature which
wouio) be either beneficial or prejudiciul'to
this part of the tate, I shall ever consult
tue wishes of my constituents, and act in
conformity to the will ol the majority of the
people I represent, and i trust that no sel
tisu interest local prejudice or personal
consideraHon, will ever cause me to sweri e
from the piincipies 1 heieby proclaini and
and the pledges I here make. I did not
intend to discuss thesetopics of interest in
this article, but to state briefly in the plain
est terms, the pol.cy r snail pursue in ref
erence to these local interests, in case the
citizens of this Dift'ict ratify the action of
their delegates at the ballot-box ; and to
thank the convention for the nomination.
