I'RESEM AX1 FCTCBE.
Tlic jtolitical canvass which closed ycstcr
1j v resulted lit placing Kansas on the side
and in the comjany of the honest Rcpubli
can States. She lias always been Republi
can by very large majorities, and her people
have been as intelligent and as honorable as
the citizen of any other State. But her po
litical destinies have liccn, to a very great
extent, in the control of unscrupulous dema
gogues men who were cunning and false,
tricky and despicable, The intense political
excitement which existed here, the attach
ment of our itcople to the principle of free
dom, the fact that we have had, in truth,
two mil wars waged on our soil these
things combined to draw the attention of the
icop!c to the single issue of slavery or frcc
ilom; to building up parties on that issue
alone; to making it the true test of party
fealty, to the exclusion of the tests usually
applied elsewhere, of character, manhood,
educational qualification-, honesty and in
tegrity. Mr. Seward remarked a good many ears
ago that on could never get the American
eoplc to attend to more than one question
at one time, and that it had taken him years
to tall attention to the slavery question
and tit make it the vital question
Iteforc the public. The remark
was undoubtedly true, and true
of other people licwidcs our own. And it in
a good trait; a mark of endurance and rugged
oltinacy; an illustration of the slow and
sure elements which go to make up stead
fastness of character. The people of Kansas
gate ecry thought to freedom. Kansas
must be free; the soil must be free; their
children must le free. Blood was shed for
tli.it immortal principle, and every neigh
liorhood, and every divide anil every river
Ixittom had its angry, stern and relentless
struggle. And, as soon as the question was
titled for Kansas, it came up for America.
We h id struck a nun in Salt Creek Valley,
and we found that we had hit a man in

on, there was only one party Shibboleth
" Is he a Free State man ?" If he waf, we
xoicd for him. There seemed to be no other
altcriutixc; no other way of settling that
question, and settling it forever. It was un
der such au-piccs that Jim Lane became the
leader of Kansas and dictated County, State
and Federal officers, ruling u with the iron
hand of an autocrat. We knew that
Line hid killed (Jains Jenkins, a
jH-accable ami honorable man ; that

that he did not pretend to jny his debts; and

It x ill not be news to announce to your
readers that anyiortioii of Kansas is filling
up rapidly, new farms broken up and fenced,
new houses, stores, school houses being
erected, and pnictty rapidly advancing in
value; but no portion of the State is devel
oping faster than the Northern tier of coun
ties. A trip west from Atchison, through
the counties of Atchison, Brown, Nemaha,
Marshall, and Washington, within the past
few days, lias demonstrated to my satisfac
tion the fact'that no richer or better land
exists any where.
For a few miles after leaving Atchison,
there is a growth of light, scrubby timber.
This kind of land, or landscape, is not so pleas
ing to the exc as the rolling prairie, though
the soil is probably about as good. But in
a short distance we reach the ocaiititnlvopen
country, 'which is fast becoming dotted over
with the houses of settlers. Between Atch
ison and Watcrvillc, the present terminus of
the Central Urinch. there arc no large towns,
but quite a large number of small) new,' but
apparently thriving towns, viz: Effingham,
MuscoUh, Netawaka, Wctmore, Corning;
Centralis, Frankfort, Elizabeth, Irving and
Blue KapUte ' ' ' ' '
' The Central Branch U. P. R. R. is having
a large amount, of local travel, and of
course that is the only kind it can have, as
long as the road ends no where in particnlar.
When it is finished through it will have its
share of through Jrayct , Mrcat quantities of
lumlicr arc carried over it' 'westward, for
building up the towns and farm houses along
its line, and beyond its terminus.
The crops this v car in the Northern tier
arc very good, lately there has been rather
too much rain, in some places the streams
having swollen so much as to carry off the
bridges. Many fine fields of wheat are'to be
seen, looking as well as we ever saw wheat,
and the indications are that the yield will be
very large. "' , ,
1 am not well enough: posted to speak par
ticularly of each town along the road. At
Ceutralia a fine steam flouring mill is just
approaching completion, and other building
oerations arc progressing. , Muscotah has a

WM..ralbiraliveur,shect,' This place has
enjoyed the advantage pCfbeinstbe 'aft of,
an old score to settle with this road. Their
tariffof freights to-day amounts to about
thirty-eight cents per car per mile for stock
trains, whilst the Missouri Pacific charges
only 145; the Atchison Topeka Santa Fe
16j. There will be no cattle shipped from
Abilene next year, the Atchison Topeka &
Santa Fe by spring will be completed to
Cottonwood Falls, will have tienetrated to
the cattle regions, affording a better and
cheaper route to market than via the Kan
ssa Pacific. Even now whilst the Kansas
Pacific charges forty-three dollars a car from
Junction City to Kansas City, we ship from'
Emporia over the Atchison Topeka & Santa
Fe, thence over the Kansas Pacific to Kan
sas City for thirty-five dollars and twenty
of this goes to the Kansas Pacific.
As soon as you get direct connections with
Chicago, and the Chicago & Southwestern
Road is completed to Topeka, we shall be
able to chip to Chicago as cheap as we now
ship to St. Louis; and this becomes at once
the great cattle route to Chicago. Another
hundred miles of road from here to Arkansas
City would control the whole Texas cattle
trade, and take it directly through your city
to Chicago, making Leavenworth the point
of re-shipment, as Kansas City now is. It is
to be honed then that cars loaded with cattle
will not nave to be left on the side track six
hours, waiting to be unloaded, as mine were
last Saturday, on the Kansas Pacific, at
Kansas uty, .mo. m
The political pot is boiling here. CapU
E. S. Stover is the Republican candidate
for Senator. H. L. Hunt, a wily Demo
cratic politician, is his opponent. Hunt is
also the candidate of the Atchison, Topeka A
Santa Fe Railroad. I think there is but
little doubt about Stover's election. For the
House, the Republicans nominated Lieut S.
N. Wood, formerly A. Q. M. of the Sixth
Missouri Cavalry. In opposition, the Dem
ocrats, the railroad and the soreheads have
brought out one J. W. McWilliams. There
is but little doubt about Wood's election.
The Democratic party is small in this County.
The Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe R. R. has
no votes, and but little influence. Mr. Pe
ters' boasted influence is likelv to kill any
candidate to whom it is given in Chase

One of the grandest sichts it has ever been
our fortune to witness took place on last
Monday evening. It was caused by the
Osages setting fire to the prairie erass. in or
der to scare up the game, on the south side
of the Arkansas. In the early part of the
evening, small species ot tore were to be seen
on the south and west of us, which, as even
ing came on, grew larger and larger, until it
became one massive band, looking as though
it would almost encircle us. On the biph
bluff on the south side, the flames could be
seen waving and leaping in their mad fury,
making a terrible picture to behold. One
moment it would be seen climbing a high
bluff) and the next sweeping down into the
valley below, and so on until it reached the
bank of the Arkansas, where it was stayed.
Much damage to buildings and hay are an
ticipated. We can console ourselves that we

about 500 bushels of corn, a lot of farm im

shoot some game, they each took a gun a
squirrel rifle and a shot-gun. After securing
their load of wood they started on their re
turn home, Mr. Gilver holding the two guns,

time taking the rifle to hold it Mr. Gilver,
getting ofl the wagon, walked some distance
ahead of the team and discharged one barrel

The probabilities are that the Democracy
will carry the State by 30,000 majority, ow
ing greatly to the unpopularity of Woodford
with many Republicans, and the fait tint
there is almost a split in the Republican
ranks. The Republicans arc fighting more
to secure control of the State n 1872, thin
to elect Woodford, and it is evjiectesl the
split will be an oien one before the new
vear. Governor Fcnton's friends hope to
nominate him for President, and they are
shaqdy opposed by those who Feck Grant's
nomination. Many Fenton men have lieen
removed from thejC'Untom House, recently,
and it is thought more will follow.
