BEAR THIS IN MIND. ..
We learn that Taylor and Hersey hare stated
in Topefca that thd defeat of the' Bridge Bill was
nausea by our strictures on the Legislature.
Other measures of local importance will be de
feated, for the Bame reason that this one was
viz: the strong terms in which the people have
denounced the villiany and unexampled corrup
tion of the majority Regarding the defeat
of life 'Bridge .Bill, if, according to Taylor
and Hersey it be true that we are responsible for
its defeat, it is indicative of one or other of two
things: the immense power of the Smoky Hill
Union, or the pack of consumat", ignorant, narrow-minded
jackasses that we have legislating
foAriis. HutsjsUch is no reason for the defeat
of a. measure of such vast importance to thejeo
ple of all sections ot the State. However, we
expect that these repudiated mis-representatives
will come home and retail 'such a silly lie td the
prejudice of tile Union. "We happen to be in
possession j of the evidence of their duplicity.
The true reason for the defeat of the Bridge Bill
"wasthat it was introduced by Sir. Jonce, the
leadtx of the minority, and is practically the
eame gag upon the people which enabled them
to override l.11 the rights of the minority in the
Hf,U3e. The corruptionist held a caucus, at
which Hersey made a speech, of which the foL
lowing, take.a from the Topeka Record, is its
substance. It will be noticed that he speaks for
' Mr. Taylor. Wa3 duplicity ever more glaring?
Butdiere it is :
" Hersey, of Dickinson, said he only wanted
the defeat of tha bills makiuir appropriations for
the Agricultural College at Manhattan, and for
tl payment of the fees of the Junction Land
Vfficeribr locating thd lands of the Agricultural
OOHese. He and P. Z Taylor would have to
VOTE FOR THEM IN ORDER TO SAVE
THEIR OWN HEADS. But he depended upon
the friends to knock them on the head. He did
not care a darn for his constituents ; he voted on
his own responsibility."
Can men be trusted after they betray you, and
because you will not submit ask the majority to
kill your local measures ?
CA friend at Fort Riley sends U3 a notice of
the addresses delivered before' their Literary
Association, but it failed to reach us in time.
As we noticed loet week the addresses of Mr.
Henderson and Mr. McBratney we will' publish
the notice sent us of Capt. McClure's, hoping our
friend will give us further notes, as our columns
are" at the service of such institutions :
" Captain J. R. McClure was the speaker for
the last meeting of the Association. His subject
was one also bf great interest just now, ' The
Senatorial Fraud." The Captain, in a vigorous
and 'scathing speech, showed that the new Sena
torial parly was made of rather shnk- materials,
that they had showed anxiety to dispatch their
job without hearing from the people, that their
plea of doing their deed to compass the defeat of
Lane was not only unsound, but an insult to the
rights of the people. Ho expressed the opinion
that the actors in this measure were only promot
ing effectually the triumph of their foe, the pres
ent -Senator, and showed that such action was
- destructive of republican liberty."

A LINCOLN MEETING.
In accordance with a call of the " New
York Uoton Association," a meeting tva
held in Taylor's Hall, Monday eveuiug,
February 22d, to express views regarding
the next Presidency. Wm. H. Mackey
wis called to the Chair, and W. B. House
chosen Secretary. R. McBratuey, E. V.
Seymour, and V. K. Bartlett, were ap
pointed a Committee to draft resolutions to
be reported at an adjorned meeting.
Thursday evening, 125th inst., the meet
ing convened again, and the Committee on
Resolutions made the following report.
Short addresses were made by Mr. Todd,
Mr. McBratney, and Lieut. Pierce, after
which the resolutions we're adopted unani
. Wuereas, Abraham Lincoln, during
his, administration of the affairs of our
Government, notwithstanding the for
midable and terrible rebellion with which
be has been assailed from the moment of
bis assuming the duties of the high office
conferred upon him by the people of" this
. country, has displayed most unshaken
feourage in defending our free institutions :
great moderation, firmness, and fidelity to
bis trust; coustant devotion to constitutional
liberty and personal freedom, as exemplified
in his messages, and in his proclamations of
freedom to the slave and of amnesty to the
traitor; and whereas, During the present
conflict he has acquired an unusual expe
rience in governing a free people, and ex
hibits a deep appreciation of all the difficul
ties in which our -country is' involved, and
most undoubted ability to conduct it safely
ttifougb all, therefore
'Resolved, That we regard the re-election
of Abrabam Lincoln as our next President,
as imperiously demanded by the necessities,
the'interests and the honor of the country,
and we .hereby declare him our first and
only choice for that high office, and should
he be the candidate he -will receive the vote
of every loyal man in Western Kansas, and
we doubt not in tbis entire State.
Resolved, That whilst we shall be gov
erned bv the wishes of. the majority of loy
al men in the Unioif, in the selection of the
candidate for our next President, we give
it as otfr conviction, that the Interests of
freedom, and of the nation would be best
subserved by the re-election of Mr. Lin
coln without the formality of National
'"tTohvention, and that during the approach
ing election, -no party distinctions or issues
should,, existj excepting as between loyal
joen aad traitors.

meeting be published inrthVUftiO!r, and a
