THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 1870.
The march through France by King Wil
liam and the Crown Prince is as triumpliant
as was Slicnnan's march to the sea. Ger
many is in the heart of France, living on it,
Mopping nil business, monopolizing it, and
going to Paris to demind anil conquer a
(eruianciit peace. Ami the sympathies of
every lover of liberty and humanity through
out the whole world arc with Germany. If
the French La Faycttcs and Rochambeaus
who fought with us in the Revolution were
jilive to-day, they would be as much the
friends of Germany as wc are, and
as are the descendants Jof the Ger
man Stctibens and Dc Kalbs, who also
fought with in. To claim the proud name
of I-i Favclle art sympathizing with the
u-iirpcr ami ilcsjiot, ixmis jSnpolcon, is as
wrong and wicked as it would hare been for
the Amorican RclicK of 1801 to claim the
t-ymjiathy of George Washington, became
he iii a Rebel in 1770". La Fayette and
Washington gave their Mood and their lives
for freedom, for a united, free and consti
tution il government the cause for which
Germany fights to-day, mid in which tJic
IJi-;iii:irck and King William may not lc
lb-publicans and in favor of
a five citiitituiiional government to-day.
At the lieginiiingof our own war, Lincoln
and Svw.ud dc-Iared that they would not in
terfere with slavery. McClcIIan marched
into We-t Virgin! i, ami issued a proclama
tion in which lie said that his soldiers would
protect slavery and return runaway slaves.
In lb" summer of 18(11 every Republican in
bith HoiiMSof Congress voted that the ob
ject of the war was not to abolish or inter
fere with slavery, but simply to restore the
Union. Rut the cause was greater than Lin
i!ii or the iHiliticians of any rty. The
Gcriiiaiiskm-w it asjwe know their caii.se now,
and they fought for Freedom and Union.
And the cause of Prussia is greater than the
Tory Risinarck orjhe hereditary Hohenxol
lern. If Fnuice cannot appreciate it, then
she must stand aside and let a greater ami
truer jicople take the leadership of Europe.
If England continues jterfidous and makes
"li.issejMits for Franrc as she made Alabamas
lor the slave-masters, then England shows
tint she is a nation of pedlers, yard-sticks
and hucksters. Her rich are bloated
and gouty ; three hundred thousand
of her MHir are starving ; and when
this war over, as it will lie speedily, Prussia
wii! add her Chas-eisit, coal and horse
claims lo the Alabama claims of the United
S'aU-s, ami England will cat humble pie
through the rest of the ccntnry. Thc'coun
Iryincii of Luther and Humboldt arc in uni

The rapid success of Prussia amazes France
and atunds the whole world. The invad-
rs are unic-stricken in their own Capital,
and their Emperor it a fugitive and a wan
derer. I Ic is sneaking from one point to an
other, and rawly peeps. 'His retreat from
illage to village can only be compared to
Andy Johnson swinging round the circle,
anil to Jeff Davis running away in a woman's
tlothes. If Napoleon Ls arrested for treason
we hope Rocohfort will sign his bond, secure
bis release, ami allow him to come to the
Ilnititl States and go into the Life Insurance
bii-im-ss with Jeff Davis, at Memphis.
Ami the Prussians are almost at the gates
if Paris. It it as impossible to raise soldiers
in France to-day as it was for Davis to re
unit in Georgia when Sherman was
then. It is too late. Olio mil
lion Germans prevent it. They arc
m French soil, and they will remain
until they obtain such a peace as the demands
of the civilized world have a right to insist
iiimii. )f the iHiwer ami purpose of Prus
sia, the yitim says:
We have but little news by way of Berlin,
except official detatcliui from ihe King,
w hich have, however, the sober, modest and
Mimewhat solemn air which has marked all
his utterances since the war broke out. J5ut
there is little to lie said about the Prussians
except that their administrative machine
works with unbroken regularity, and with a
jmuderous xtwer which is astounding the
civilized world. Men, munitions, ami stores
pour to the front in a never-failing current,
and every man finds his place when he gets
there, npjurently without a jar, and every
blow cither of "the three corps strikes, it
strikes with all the force of the first hour.
The work which in all otlier wars has lieeri
the work of a year, is literally crammed by
the Prussians into a month. They take the
whole male imputation bodily, and without
giving cv ii delicate men time to get sick or
weary, Hing the mass on the enemy, and
again, and again, and again; till he is crushed,
and ihe war is over. The terrible rapi.lityiis

Snictv is waiting paralyzed at home for the
aimv to come lack, ami it has to win quickly
at whatever cost. It Ls pretty certain, too,
that murderous as this system seems,' if is-the
m.st humane of all. it saves the losses by
lipase, which in all wars. outnumber the
htx-es under fire four to one.

We hae looked into the laws of 1S57S
lotiml what was the law in regard to the
testimony of colored jwrsons, and wc find
that the pnr-criptivc laws of 1855 were re
IHS.Ied, and that the law was the same, dur
ing the trial of the Charley Fislirieise thaf
; ;. - Wn liil not intended tii refer to

this city. But an examination of the $w
and of the rqnirt of the trial diows thallh
fart was well-known to tlic attorney, , in
January, 1859, and to i the. -Recorder, ami
that the decision of the Recorder was not
only against the principles of the copitfion
law, against humanity, and, justice
and against colored men, but als
again-t the plain letter of the statute then in

This statement will antound those who,

Oxi: of the saddest effects of thecxeessi'tfe!
drought and dryness, is the great Sreswhich,
arc raging in the vast forests, of, Cwade.
Thcirst ravages of the terrible element were.
in he neighborhood of Ottawa, the capital
of the Dominion. In the vicinity of that
city, several small villages inhabited mainly
by French and Indians, were Ixurned, and
many aggravated cases of fiuflering are' re
ported. The flames nest broke, out near
Montreal, where tiie same destructive results,
though on a smaller scale, were again wit
nessed. Now the telegraph reports thai the
woods in. New Brunswick are .in flames, and
and that great damage has already lieen done.'
The great woodland regions of Maine ofler a
rich field for the devouring element, if. they
should unfortunately lie visited by it, but the
rest of New England need apprehend ', no'
danger from this source. Remorseless civ
ilization, whichlias swept away most of the
beautiful forest, has unintentionally removed
one temptation to the flames which the dry
season invites. The sufferers by the fire in
Canada appeal for aid, and they will lin
doutcdly meet with generous responses, from
the benevolent. . , . ,
THE OLATHaV MEETING.
The Black Bob settlers have 'settled Sid.
Clarke. They have held a meeting at 6la
the to which they invited Clarke more than
a month ago to be present, and to explain, if
he could, his connection with theBIack Bob
steal. The notice was publicly given in all the
papers, and was one to which an honest nian
would luive been glad to make a response.
A sjiecial despatch published in THE Times,
told how he avoidwl the issue. "Several
thousand persons were present, the swindled
settlers ill turning out in procession. r The
statement of facts presented by the sutlers on
the Black Bob lands was read, and Clarke
lid not and could not answer it. The man
who should have been their friend, nnil -who"
claims to the friend of all our Pettier?,
was the jcrson who had robbed tliem. No one
is so fully aware of 'this as Clarke himself,
and it is not surprising that he skulked away
when he was confronted by the poor men
whose farms he lias -etolen. ,Thc lagng
facts in this case we liave published many
times. We give to-day the beginning and
the conclusion of the statement made by the
settlers a statement .which Clarke' will never
attempt to answer: .
In relation to the evils growing out of
official abuse and official corruption, the
people of Johnson county have .'a deep and
all pervading interest, and it is particulary
and vitally important to the twelve hundred
men, women. and children living on the
Black Bob reservation, that the next mem
ber of Congress from this State should be
incorniptibly honest,, and fully pledged, to
the extinguishment of every Indian title; in
the State, and more tlian Uiat, to the ex
tinguishment of each title in such manner
only as will secure every acre of Indian
land within the limits of the Stale to actual
settlers. This is not alone a matter of in
terest to the twelve hundred people living
on the Black Bob lands, but a matter of the
greatest iiiiiortanco to every taxi payer and
every citizen of the county, and touches the
hearts and homes of not less than a hundred
thousand of the present imputation of Kan
sas,' and is destined to liave an incalculable
influence for weal'or for woe ujibn the future
interest and destiny of the entire State.
Standing before you, as we do, at the re
quest of the settlers on the Black'" Bob re
serve, and sficaking to you in behalf of' their
special interests, which, in connection with
similar interests' of the many thousands of
people occupying Indian lands in the 'Stale,
exert at this time so powerful an influence
in the policy of the whole people, wc find it
incumbent upon us to call the special atten
tion of the people, of this country to Mr.
Clarke's record on the Black Bob matter. It
is with feelings of regret, though with a deep
sense of public duty,' that we'arcu"nileFtbe
necessity of exposing the corruption and dis
honesty of a man in whom the people have
reposed confidence and entrusted with a
high ami responsible publicvtation. This is
a duty wc would gladly avoid, and one so
(Kiinful tliat we would gladly shrink from its
performance on the close of .Mrs I Clarke's
Congressional term, were it not for the fact
that he is now seeking a re-election at the
hands of the eopIe he has letrayl; were it
not for the fact that he has opposed the dele
gated power of the State to the (interests of
the eoplc of this country; were it,iiot.fr
the fact that lie has ti-ed that power to bring
uihjii a large portion of the people of John-;
son county the most intolerable grievances;
were it not for the fact tliat he . has used that
'power in the corrupt' interests of speculators,
wiuieproicssingio me cuampion ami menu
of the settlers; were it not for the ad tliat ho
has, from1 time lo time, and always in' the
nmst secret manner, surrounded1 ,the settlers
with tlic1 most serious ffficulties, and per
plexities, and siiifghl fry every means he dare
eiiiploy,fko promote the interests of those who
were seeking by fraud and ' corruption, to rob
the settlers of their homes. -
Wc liave-sliown from the records Uie facts,
from the evidence of reliable men, ami from
all the circumstances of the cae, that'Mr.
Clarke was the enemy of thescttlerHesrly
as the fall of 1866; tliat he was thn engaged
with speculators in a scheme to get control of
tlic Black Bob ) lands; that; - itoofcdirig . in

It is said that there is a movement on foot
in Utah to declare Brigham Youngirdallible.
Thc-Bigamcnical Council will be called by
Brigban hitnelf, and will contain no mem
bers unless they are practical bigamists. As
only Mormons will attend, and Mormons
with many wives, as the discussions will be
carried on in the Momiom language, and in
secret, and as no single-wived newspapers
are permitted to be published in the Terri
tory, it is' absolutely certain that Brigham
will succeed and be declared infallible, and a
divine marriage guide.
As soon as the State Convention is over
Siil Clarke will go up to Salt Lake as a
practical Brighaniite Bigamist.
The proper lime to sec Saratoga is thus
stated by a correspondent : "When day has
given place to night; when Terpsichore is
goddess of the hour; when everybody comes
out in their 'stunningest' to see and be seen,
but more particularly the latter; when every
body comes upon the stage to act in reality
tlie, sentimental apiearance they hare so
studiously practised upon; when the Floras
and Adolphuscs go into the flirtation busi
ness with all their might; when anxious
mammas strive to get their 'roeelwda' into
the most attractive positions, and .all buzz
and chatter away just as fast as they can, but
not one knowing a word the other lays
tikis is the time to sec and appreciate Saratoga
Thkbk is a room in Hamburg, where a
certain privileged number of bankers and
capitalists meet daily, and follow the move
ments of tlic different Prussian army corps
with considerable exactness from information
they receive privately. They calculate the
chances of the conflict with a degree of con
fidence truly surprising, while the funds and
exchanges are marvellously influenced by the
problems which are there presented and
solved. A series of maps on a very large
scale are spread upon tables, and tlie differ
ent itositions of each corp (f armc, marked
by their respective flags, are changed from
time to time as advices come to land.
According to a circular of Messrs. Aries,
Dufour & Co., Lyons, the outbreak of war,
"as lamentable as unexpected,'' has nearly
stopped all transactions hi the silk markets
at tliat city. Large orders of goods for Ger
many and Paris were withdrawn; but, on
the otlier hand, in consequence of the sus
pension of work in the silk manufactories of
Bhenish Prussia and of many districts of
Switzerland, some important purchases hare
been made for English ami Russian con
sumption at reductions not exceeding 10 or
13 per cent.

Saline county redeemed herself to-day by
electing anti-Clarke delegates. The Clarke
men to-night look down in tlie mouth, al
though .they did their best, but the ciliaens
of Saline county were load in their ilenun
ciaUo4f Clarke. The majority was larger
than the anti-Clarke men were expecting.
You may set this county down as almost a
unit against Clarke.
The election was very exciting, as Clarke's
officials worked well ; for which he had paid
them ; and they also looked into the future.
We are quite amused here to read the Hon.
S. D. Houston's flamingjetter in the Junc
tion Union of to-day in support of Clarke.
We can almost imagine at every fourth line
he wrote, "I write this because Clarke gave
me tbe""rand office." How blind wc can get
when we are benefitted I

held at the M. E. Church, Mr. Archie

Wheat. We are informed that there
will probably be more than twice the num

year. Everything seems now to promise

Republic. At a special election for tlie
location of the county seat of Republic
county, last week, Belleville came out vic
torious by over 100 majority. The cry of
fraudulent voting has, however, .been raised,
and we learn that the result will be con
tested. lyatoritfe Tdejmj.
Riley. By some unfortunate mistake
(though "figures won't lie,") the county of
Riley is reported in the Leavenworth Times,
and doubtless in other papers,' to have but
3.104 inhabitants, instead of 5.104. Sous

Couxterfkitek Arbfxteu. From Capt.
Hyde we get the particulars of the arrest of
a chap named Brown, hailing from Mont
gomery county, Kansas, charged with pass
ing counterfeit money. Ho purchased n
pair of shoes at the lmot and shoe store of
Chapman & Clowery on Wall street, giving
a ten dollar note in inyuicnt. When it was
discovered that the note was counterfeit, the
police were put Umn his truck, and they suc
ceeded in finding him at the Gulf House.
He was arrested by Deputy U. S. Marshal,
Dimou,' and thirty dollars in counterfeit
notes were found upon his person. He was
lodged in the County jail for safe keeping.

measure of any conscquonce has had to have
its iuiiiKdijle representative at Washington

with dim expense of tens of thousands of

The settlers on the Black Mob tract find
themselves sold out by Clarke, and have
lieen obliged to employ Mr. Slaughter tto
look after the interests tictrayed into the
hands of the "Indian King."
The Millers on the Kaw and Sac and Fox
Reserves have had to piy delegations to
watch our Menilier of Congress.
The city of Iavenr;ortn has always sent
a delegation to Washington when there was
anything of importance to he accomplished,
whether it had reference to their railroad
interests, the Bridge, or the Coal shaft aj
propriatiun. When Fort Scolt was looking to an exten
sion of her railroads to Santa Fe, our
townsman, General Blair, had to be sent to
guard our interests.
And to all around the State. Xo inior
t.int interest has been willing to trust Clarke.
Every enterprise of public or private im
portance has had to M-nd delegates to secure
success. This has been attended with great
expense. It is a reflection on Clarke, and : a
disgrace to the party. '
Let ns save our money, and send a man
whom the eople can trust, a man who will
not need a delegation to watch him.
It Is n fact.

Pari, August 29 Midnight It Ls lie
licval here, to-night, that a tremendous bat
tle has lecn going on all day, :is according
to all accounts McMahou iniLt have reached
the troops 'of Prince Frederick Charles to
day. Le 1'Mic tstys immrtant military events
were e.xected near Montmedy, to-day;
events which must exercise a great influence
on the situation. It is positively known that
all Prussians have been conccntratinc for
two days upon iiethel, Vouziers, and Mont
medy. FKOM THE HEADQUARTERS OF TIIE CROWN
A correspondent of the 3W6wite with the
Crown Prince's heatbpiarters, -XTntes from
Xancy, August 21): " While GeneraLs Stein
melE and. Prince Frederick Charles have
done so well on the right of the main French
tinny, the Crowii Prince has occupied a more
and more threatening position on the right
of the whole French isitiou. Unless Fitil
ley can quickly muster siitlicient force, to
cover Central and Southern France, the Em
pire will lie exposed to imminent danger in a
region quite unprep red for defence. Once
relieved from the posribiliiy of a movement
from the northwanl, the Crowii Priiicc
can do pretty much as he likes in other
quarters. The situation near MeU cannot lie
k-tter Miiumed lip than by Riyini; th.l 'Jic
French army is more than matched by the
tint and m.l l'm.-i jo -irmii, ami if these
armies should win throughout by a hairs
breadth, the Prussians and their Southern

revolting. The Ganlois proposes that women
not wearing mourning in the streets should
lie insulted. The Figaro complains that
there has been only 2,000 arrests. The pre

in the prisons. The Figaro replies. If you
cannot lodge all the Prusian spies shoot
them, and then you will have more room.
As a sequence of the recent suczeMions, some
