To Our Patrons.
We desire to call the especial atttmtion
of our patrons to certain improvements
which it is-our purpose to make in this pa
per, at the commencement of the next vol
ume, and which, we think, will render it still
more worthy of general patronage.
Enlargement. It is intended to en
large this paper, with the commencement of
the next vime.by ihe elongation of its col-
umns, and the addition of a column to each
page. The Herald will then , contain
twenty-eight columns, and will exceed in
size any of its Territorial cotemparies.
Uesides this enlargement we shall be ena
bled on the completion of the publication of
United States Laws to give up our entire
'first page" to poetry, humorous items, and
a general variety "of interesting articles up
on differeDt topics, by which means we
hope to supply our readers with much-pleasant
reading matter. t
OtheH Improvements. The new voU
ume will be improved in many respects,
and its publication will be greatly beautified.
With fine clear type, a superior quality of
. j)aper, a new heading, and many minor
features which, it is believed, will enhance
"the value and interest .of this paper,' the
Proprietors hope to make the Herald one
of the handsomest and most valuable pa
pers issued from the press of this Teiritory.
Editorial Department. In ouredi
torial remarks we will adhere steadily and
firmly to the course we have hitherto pur
sued. We will speak freely and openly on
all topics of public interest ; ' resist " all
unjust aggres;ion upon the sentiments?
rights and institutions of the South ; de
nounce abuses wherever they. may exist;
appeal to judgement instead of passion;
and in all things substitute Reason for
Dogmatism. ?,We shall continue to be the
same fearless opponent of Fanaticism,
Freesoilism? "National Democracy in Kan
sas," and the thousand and one disguises
which Abolitionism, in ' the ever shifting
game of politics, assumes to cover its de
formity and nakedness from the public eye ;
but shall aim -in 'all things to promote har-
monv of sentiment' and unity of effort
J - -
among Pro-slavery men in this Territory,
recognizinsr the importance of making Kan
sas a slave State paramount o all section
al interest and aU nominal pany-ism.
Pay vp !. But while announcing the
improvements to he made in the Herald,
and reasserting its principles may not be
- an unappropriate time to ask all our pa-
irons who are indebted'to this office for
subscription, advertising or job work to call
and make immediate settlement, as.it is
our wish to have the accounts of the Herald
settled up before the. commencement of the
next volume. If it be not in their power
to discharge all they owe us, let them share
with us a portion of tKfir means. We
tinve nnttnnnpd tVtp mnttpr TiTt to this time
as an accommodation to our friends, and
hope they will not fail now to respond to
this call. Let them defer the payment of
their debts no longer, or else we will have
to adopt the complaint of Hostess Quickly
: "I have borne, and borne, and borne, and
have been fubbed off, and fubbed off, and
fubbed off, from this day to that day, that
is a shame to be thought on.

Whitfield in thls place,; erday.C- It
was a most excellent addresss.and was fc
celTed by our citizens with mirks of hearty
approbation. - In the coarse of his remarks
Gen. Whitfield took occasion to say that
hewas, and had always been, in favor of
a change in the Delaware treaty, and had
labored manfully and zealously in the last
Congress to effect its modification a state
ment hsubstantiatedbyxeadlng letters from
several distinguished gentlemen. He said
a change of treaty was -promised hinv by.
the President, and would have Been given
him Lad it not been for theDelaware remonstrance.-
Gen. Whitfield remarked he
was sanguine a change of treaty, could be
effected, and if he was sent back to Congress,
he should battle with all his zeal and pow
er for the interests of the Delaware Squat
ters. After refuting certain unwarranta
ble charges which have been made against
him he proceeded to define his platform. -He
avowed himself a Pro-Slavery mau,and
said that in his canvass he should introduce
but the one issue, vizSlavery or Anti-
slavery. No other issue did he recognize
in the Territory, norupon any other would
he canvass the Territory. In our next pa
per we will give a fuller report of' his
speech, and will publish certain letters in
refutation of charges which have been;
brought againAt'him.:.'To,:-the'rernaLrks of
the other, speakers we? have not timeto air
lude. . ' '"'
At the suggestion of many friends it is
proposed by the Proprietors of this paper
to celebrate in an appropriate manner, Sat
urday, the 15th of thepresent month, the
first anniversary of the day upon which this
paper the oldest jn the Territory
was established. The ceremonies on the
occasion will take place under the umbra
geous branches of the. "THE OLD ELM
TREE" where the first number of the Kan
sas Herald, the first paper ever printed in
this Territory, was issued.
Hon. B. H. Twombly, who was connec
ted with the .Editorial department of the
Herald in its iniancy will deliver an address.
Hon. R. R. Rees, Col. D. J. Johnson and
several other distinguished gentlemen will
be present,. We hope all our citizens will
join in the celebration.
: Our City Election.
Our first city election for a mayor and
nine council men took place on Monday
last, and passed off without that intense and
feverish excitement which usually charac
terises municipal elections. Immediately
after the opening of the polls the name, of
Capt. L. J: Eastin, who had become a can
didate for the Mayoralty at the urgent so
licitation of a large numberof our citizens,
was withdrawn by his' friends, leaving
Thos. T. Slocum Esq;, the only candidate
lor the office. Owing, to this there was not
sufficient opposition or feeling, in the elec;
tion to call forthtthe full vote of the city.
We know of a number of persons who did
not vote, and Irom reliable mlormation we
can safely say that the vote polled in this
election does not indicate the full "strength
of our voting population by 50 votes, ,The
actual legal voters of this city do not num
ber less than 350.
The following "shows the result of the
election, and the names of the emulous

been taken from i Tjrrs,tatic5'-'that;a.
project has. been startedin tiis Territory to
purchase fhewnole : ef Missouri known p&
the 'Platte, Purchase,' and annex it to Kan
sas. We have never made 'such a state
ment,' nor haW'wever published a single
line"-relative to the.. Platte Purchase No
such' propositi oil, is entertained by our citi
zens, nor is any such annexation desired by
the people of Kansas. ' - But even were such
an annexation- desired, buying, the country
would not by far effect its annexation. -
To effect annexation two things would be
absolutely necessaT more than the "mere
wi8lw)f the people of Kansas;' even if they
owned every foot of the soil of the Platte
Purchase. The; Legislature of Missouri
would have to consent . to-give up some
thirty," thousand of ,Jier population-and to
part with her jurisdiction over t nn area of
some four or five hundred miles which it
is not at all probable ii wculd be willing to
do, and the Congress of ; the United States
would have to assent to the transfer which
is equally ? improbabl e 1 to suppose. The
boundaries of Kansas are fixed
by , act- of
Congress, and Platte county could
included except' as first -acquired ;bythe.
United States and then included by law
within the limits of the Territory. The
report of such a project is-wholly and unequivocally-false,
arid we hope the different
papers , that have imputed to the Kansas
Herald a statement so . "false, absurd and
preposterous will do us the justice to make
the correction. ' :.' '""
Our Post OrncE. Althbughitr has
scarcely been six months since the estab
lishment, of a Post Office at this place, it
would surprise any person uninformed of
the extent of its business to see the large
mails that leave - our - city. Ffiw of our
readers have' any conception of the large
number of letters ; sent from Leavenworth.
On Tuesday last, we are told by Mr. Har
rison, the polite and efficient clerk, there
were over 230 'letters, mailed from the of
fice making an. average of 1000 letters
per week. This speaks well for the intel
ligence of our citizens and for the business
of our city. At this rate we may expect to
soon hare a daily mail. v, :
GOV. SHANNON. li'sL
We learn that His Excellency, Gov. Wil
son Shannon reached Westport on Satur
day last and left immediately for Shavvnee
Mission.. He "supersedes .Hon. Dan'l.
Woodson who has been acting Governor
since' the dismissal of Ex-.Governor Jieeder
from office. -;We J lia reT conversed with
several gentlemen who have met with Gov.
Shannon since! his arrival, all of whom
speak of him in the most complimentary
manner. From the .favorable impression
Gov.- Shannon has already made upon the
citizens of the Territory we are inclined to
believe he will make a popular Executive.
The Washington Union in making tbe of
ficial announcement of MrJ Shannon's ap
pointment says ':
, " We are quite certain that the announce
ment of the appointment by the .President
of Hon. Wilson Shannon to be governor of
the Territory of Kansas, in the place of
Hon. J ohn L. Da wscn, whose declination
wa3 communicated yesterday, . will , give
general satisfaction. Governor Shannen's
attainments, his large experience injpub
lic affairs, State and national, his sound
discretion, and his unquestioned integrity,
eminently fit him for the delicate and res
ponsible position to which he has been cal
ledr He is about fifty-eight years of age,
was by the Choice of his fellow-citizens a
most acceptable crovernor of the State of
Ohio, a distinguished member of the-f last
Congress from the seventeenth district of
that State, and a firm and able supporter of
the Kansas and Nebraska bill.

?To which Governor-Shannon replied, as
follows: : " - '
Sir For the ; verv. friendly reception I
have met with on the present occasion, I
beg leave to tender to you,? and tnrough
you to the citizens of Kansas (whom you
represent) my; thanks. In entering upon
the duties of the responsible 'office to which
I have been appointed 't it is highly gratify-
ing to me to nna so mucn gooa ieeiing pre
vailing among the citizens oi trie J. emtory.
Coming as you do, from almost every part
of the civilized 'globe, with different man
ners,: customs and modes of thinking, it
must be expected that there will be some con
flict of opinion, in settling the policy which.
is to control the destinies of this Territory.
But while we rriay differ in opinion on
questions of r public policy, the object of all
it is to be hoped is the same the advance
ment of the best interest of the Territory
J3y respecting the opinions and even pre
judices of each other, and cultivating a so
cial feehng, we will soon harmonize, and
learn to act together for the benefit and ad
vancement of ?ur highly favored-country.
, Looking at many of the public papers in
the States one would be led to believe that
Kansas was the scene of lawless er-afusion
and discoirdr no greater rror could be com
mitted. I will not criticise the motives that
have induced "these unfounded represent a
tions, but I will say, because I belieye ivio
be true, that there is not a more law-abiding
people in the JUmted States, than the great
mass of the citizens of Kansas: There is
noV State in the Union'vvhere person and
property are more secure than in this Ter
ritory. .That some irregularities may have
taken place in the heat and excitement of
a first election, is true;Tbut ; .they sink"'into
ulter insignificance when compared with
the bloody riots that have characterized the
elections in some of the States, . and the
lawless mobs that have disgraced, some of
our : large" cities. :' V hue . the latter have
received but a passing notice. from the pub
