T0r THE BEPUBUCAHS
QF SOUTHERN. KASSAS!:
S-f - CAMPAIGN. XEWS "
- Republicans of :8mtbertr Kansa5,"we are
about entering cpon on? of the most im
portant political struggle that has ever ta
ken place in Kansas, and you are to be the
actors in that struggle. We hare got our
coat off and our' sleerea rolled up and are
booked for the fight, confident that if the
Republicans of the Territory ;will do their
duty in the great campagn now before us,
victory is ours. 4 But there is no time for
idleness.. Our enemy the great sham
Democracy are on . the alert, and every
means, both foul and fair will be used by
them to elect not only the Delegate to Con
gress this fall, but the Territorial Legis
lature; We hare got to be up and doing.
On the first Tuesday in October we will
be called upon to rote for the adoption or
rejection of the Wyandotte Constitution. -
. On Wednesday, November ,8th, there
will be. an election for Delegate to Congress,
Members of the Council, Members of the
House of Representatives,- Territorial Su
perintendent of Common schools, and for
. the various county offices to be filled by
you this fall. -
jQn Tuesday, the 6th of December,
should the Wyandott Constitution be ad
opted by the people and there is every
prospect that it will, there will be an elec
tion for State Officers under that Consti.
tution, a State Senate and House of Repre
sentatives, and Supreme Jndges. Here are
three very important elections for the Ter
ritory and State of Kansas, besides the sev
eral primary elections that will be holden
in. each township for delegates to attend
county conventions, etc., all to take place
within the next four months. It is for you
to say whether these elections shall be car
ried by the corrupt Democracy that par
ty that has always persecuted and tram
pled under foot the righls'bf the people, or
whether the .Republicans,, the friends of
Freedom, shall gain the day, , in these im
portant struggles. -
' ft is important that there 6houId be in
every family a Republican news paper, es
pecially during the coming campaign, and
in order that every one may keep posted in
the political affairs" of the Territory, we
have concluded to take subscriptions for
four months commencing on the 20th of
August, and ending on the 20th of Decem
ber at the following low rates: Single cop
ies, 60 cents; clubs of ten, 55 cents per
copy; clubs of. twenty, 50 cenU per copy;
and to any persons getting us clubs of over
twenty we will give a copy of The Niws
one year, and a copy of ' Emery Journal
of .Agriculture, one of the best agricultural
papers in. the west. To persons getting
up clubs of twenty we will give one copy
of-Tiia News for one year, and to persons
getting us clubs of ten we will give a copy
of The News for four months. We make
this liberal offer thinking there are many
persons who do not feel able to take the pa
per regularly, and yet would like to read it
during the exciting political canvass be
fore us. . " .
. Republicans of Breckenridge, Madison,
Butler, Hunter, Morris and Chase, send in
your names by the 20th of August, if you
want the paper, that we may know what
preparations to make to supply the demand.
The first No. of the campaign News
will be issued on that day.
Especially would we urge upon the Re
publicans of Breckenridge county to take
The News. An important county elec
tion is to come off this fall, - and we have
put the paper for the campaign within the
reach of all. We shall have the assistance
of the best political writers in this section
of country, and intend to make the paper
every way worthy of your support.
- ' : End of the Volume.
This week we present our readers with
No. 104 of The Kansas News, the last of
the second volume. Yes, in spite of the
evil prognostication of enemies, and the
gloomy forebodings of friends, The News
has arrived to the dignity of a "two-tea
oid!" - 1 ' - ' "
. . In looking back upon those two eventful
years, we might find abundant matter for
6elf -congratulation. Emporia and' The
News began life together, and while a mul
titude of towns and presses, starting under
more favorable auspices, have been gathered
to ? 'the tomb of the Capuleta," they have
steadily, hand in hand, gone upward and
onward, making "no more haste than good
speed," we trust, but, considering the hard
times, making satisfactory progress. Our
town Is the largest and most prosperous in
Southern Kansas; with perhaps single
exception, and the paper speaks for itself.
Meanwhile, the region, round about us has
more than kept pace with the tows in pros
perity and improvement, and Breckinridge
county, which at that time might . hare
numbered one hundred voters within ita
paesent limits, can now muster nearly one
-i We flatter ourselves that Th News has
done its full share tn promoting the mate
rial interests of the towny jt&e eounty, and
the whole southwest, and. we are happy to
know that we ;haVw?a th .toesn and
confidence of tbea whose good opinion i
best worth having.
' Tee News is one of the permanent "in1
stituUona' of Emporia and Central Kansas.
Ita circulation and; advertising jtronige
are greater than erer heretoforej aad stead
ily increasing. Offering the past a3 a
guarantee for the future, we feel confident
that The News win live to give many joy
ous annual greetings to ita patrons.7
Dr. Doya Case.
Sometime' in January last, John Doy,
Charles Doy and Clough of Kansas,
were kidnapped by a party of, slave-hunters
from Weston,-Missout They-were forci
bly captured on .the soil of Kansas, and
without the color of legal authority car
ried : into Missouri . and . imprisoned on
trumped up charges of Negro Stealings
Clough wa3 soon discharged,- and returned
to his home. . The Doys, father and son,
were incarcerated in a loathsome dungeon
upon the charge of having stolen a negro
named "Dick" from the service of his
master. They were indicted by the Grand
Jury and tried in April last , Charles Doy
was acquitted and re tuned home, while in
the Doctor's case, the Jury stood eleven for
acquittal and one for conviction. The evi
dence at that trial was fully reported and
published, and it did not only failed to show
the guilt of Doy but it did most clearly
prove his innocence. He was proved to
have been living quietly at Lawrence when
Dick left Weston of his own accord with a
pass from his master, and came into the
Territory. : AH that Doy, did was to carry
Dick and several other passengers, in his
wagon from Lawrence, northward towards
Holton, and while doing that he was set up
on by a banditti headed by Dr. Ben Wood,
Mayor of Weston, and kidnapped. '
r Well, he was removed from the Black
Hole of Weston to a more decent prison at
SL Joseph, and last month had another tri
al. A Jury carefully packed for the pur
pose, found him guilty, not merely without
evidence, but against it, and he was senten
ced to five years imprisonment in the Peni
tentiary ! A more, high-handed outrage
upon our rights was never committed. No
citizen of Kansas was safe if it was sub
mitted to. So on the evening of the 25th
of July, reason and argument having failed,
more summary measures were resorted to.
Ten citizens of Kansas went to the jail at
about eleven o'clock in the evening, having
one of their number, hand-cuffed, and pre
tended to the Jailor that he (the handcuffed
individual) was a horse-thief, whom they
had chased from somewhere about Savan
nah, (Mo.,) and captured him just as he
was entering the city. They wished to
lodge him in jail for safe-keeping. " Wheth
er the Jailor had a strong and special delu
sion sent upon him, that he might believe
a lie, or whether he had a natural talent for
getting fooled, he readily believed the story
and opened the door to the rescuers. Once
fairly inside the door, they gave a different
explanation of their business which sur
prised the the honest custodian of rogues
beyond measure. - It was Doy they wanted
and Doy -was soon at liberty. :. Divers and
sundry other victims of Missouri- justice
were anxious to avail themselves of the op
portunity to regain their liberty, but the
muzzles of sundry revolvers in the hands
of the Doy rescuers admonished them that
their time had not come. -Doy and his
friends walked quietly through the streets
from the jail to the river, passing several
policemen with - lanterns on their way,
stepped into the boats they' had provided
before hand and soon placed themselves once
more on Kansas soil.' By the aid of friends
along the route they reached Lawrence in
due season and. received a good old fashion
ed welcome from their fellow citizens. The
Jailor, meanwhile having been duly cau
tioned against making any disturbance du
ring the night, had probably obeyed orders,
and. the amiable people of St. Joseph awoke
next morning to . find that their prey had
escaped them.. , We imagine they would
have cursed a little if they had felt them
selves equal to the occasion but being ut
terly unable to do justice to the subject they
probably gave over the vain attempt. . We
learn that Dr. Doy is walking about Law
rence and attending to his business as calm
ly as Daniel did of old, after his deliverance
from the Lion's den.
The rescuers publish a statement of their
proceedings in the Lawrence papers mod
estly withholding their names from the pub
lic gaze, but substituting ten stars in the
place of their ten names ! Those ten stars
form a constellation of which Kansas wiD
long be proud, and represent names which
their children and grand children will re
gard as an honorable inheritance. . -
' Missourians may as well take notice that
we on this side of the line will attend to our
own business and expect them to do the
same. We shall not steal their ne
groes but neither shall we serve as watch
dogs for their plantations. If their "stock"
strays away Awn them they must do as we
do. Some is peculiarly liable to
stray. -. We can't help it. Men are free in
Kansas, thank God ! and her soil, consecra
ted to Freedom by the blood of her sons," is
not to be made a hunting ground for kid
nappers. . ' ': v - . -. -;. "
; Missourians may as well' understand that
fact once for - all and govern themselves accordingly.-
- " - . - ;
: J We do not know the precise : disposition
made of the " Claim business" by the Consti
tutional Convention ; :Trot one thing we do
know,.' aad that that th -new State of
Kansas is not to be burdened with the pay
ment of a half million dollars for the : ruS
anisa of UneW Sam and hia Missouri air
lies Att.honor to Uie,Conyention.for sav-:
rag the people of Kansas frcsa soIVhigh
handed an outrage
f ' f Austria.
This power is not merely a despotism
but the meanest of all Despotisms. It is
the embodied quintessence of Hunkerism
and most inveterate enemy of Progress.
It haa no law but the will of the Emperor
no literature worthy of the name and no
Religion recognized by law except the Cath
olic. Hence the Emperor of. Austria is
usually styled the "Eldest Son of. the
Church" and the Jesuits are his favorite
counsellors. When such a power gets
soundly threshed, all lovers of Freedom and
Progress must rejoice. V"-"- - "' -.-. "
Hence Louis Napoleon, who has made a
six weeks job of threshing her has for once
done a good thing for the world as well as
for Italy and his own reputation. This
defeat though it leaves Austria still a large
extent of territory will be likely to result in
her speedy ruin. She is hopelessly insol
vent and having once got fairly to going
down hill it is to be hoped that the old pro
verb will be verified by every body len
ding her a kick. Her national debt amoun
ted in 1858, to $800,000,000, eqal to 8208
for each person in the Empire while the
debt of England, vast as it is, amounts to
only 90 per head. ,
Within the last year the debt has been
immensely increased by the war, and since
she has lost Lombardy the whole debt falls
on fewer shoulders. I Our - so-called "De
mocracy" have chosen Austria as their
model and are reduced to nearly the same
straits. Hateful were they tn their lives,
in death may they not be divided.
: Great Decline in Wheat.
We learn from the Chicago Press and
Tribune of July 21st that wheat hasdeclin
ed in that city to fifty-six cents per bashel !
On the 16th of May it had advanced to
81,30 per bushel. Since that dale its course
has been steadily downward, until, on the
20th ult., it had reached the low price of fif
ty-six cents; a decline of seventy-four cents
per bushel in sixty-two days. This is the
most rapid decline on record, and of course
speculators and dealers generally, were bad
ly "bitten." The losses from the decline
are estimated at not less than a half million
dollars. Corn at the same time is worth elev
en cents per bushel more than standard
The rise in wheat on the receipt of the
news of the war was too rapid and the
crops in the West are better than ever here
tofore, while the amount produced in Eu
rope the past season notwithstanding the
war, will not fall short of that of last year.
These are some of the reasons for the un
The Kansas Democracy are to hold a
Convention at Topeka, on Wednesday the
17th inst.'to nominate a candidate for Del
egate to Congress. In the apportionment
of delegates to the nominating - convention,
Breckenridge is allotted two; Madison, Mor
ris and Chase one each; and Butler and
Hunter one; etc.
Candidates for the nomination are plenty
as blackberries; prominent among whom are
R. B. Mitchell, of Linn county, and present
Territorial Treasurer; Attorney General Da
vis, of Wyandott; ex-Judge Johnson, -of
Leavenworth; and Lecompton-Land Office
Brindle. We don't belong to the party, and
of course are not considered good authority
among its members; but our advice to the
convention, is to nominate Bob Mitchell.
He is the strongest man you have got and
the only one who can "keep in sight", on
election day. The advice is gratuitous.'
We have received no news from the Law
rence Convention which met on Wednesday
to nominate a candidate for Delegate to
Congress. The interest we feel in the nom
ination, is very slight. , In the first place
we know that a good Republican will be se
lected. And next, we know that Southern
Kansas, which should be united on a can
didate of her own, will be divided so as to
lose the nomination. Either Kaw River or
the territory north of it will get the candi
date. We have important interests at stake
in Southern and southwestern Kansas, in the
election , of a Delegate to . Congress. But
under the -present, state of things we do
not expect to get . more than the crumbs
from the tables of such places as Leaven
worth and Lawrence. We console our
selves with the thought that in a short time
we shall have the power to institute a new
order of .things. And when we get. it we
will use it.
We expect to support the nominee of the
Convention, even though it should be one
who always has and always will war against
the material interests of this section. We
do not intend to let our pecuniary interests
run away with our principles, and we be
lieve the people generally are of the same
mind. We believe that a Republican tri
umph next fall is a duty we owe to the prin
ciples for which we are contending; and we
shall not be one to assist in throwing it
away.. We shall therefore support the Re
publican nominee, and urge the same course
on the people of this section. '-v
We learn that the Constitutional Conven
tion closed its labors last week. We hare
seen but little of their work and are there
fore not-able to pass : judgment upon it.
But from the character -of the majority of
the members of the Convention, we are
led to believe that the Constitution is a good
one, and . liberal in all its essential provis
ions.. The people .are to rote on. the ques
tion of its ratification or rejection, inOcto
ber. ;.,We shall probably be- abJe to lay
the document entire before eur readers next
week. - : '- ---
v The project for the annexation of South
ern Nebraska to. Kansas- to which . we allu
ded in our last was finally "scotched" in
the Convention, although the Topeka Cap
ital scheme succeeded by the aid of all the
Democratic votes. J The final vote on. the
Capital question stood as follows:
Arthur, Brown, Barton, Dutton, Foster,
Fonnan, Greer,- Griffith, Hippie, Hubbard,
Houston, Lillie, Lamb, Moore, McDowell,
McCune, McClelland, McCullough, .Pres
ton, Parks," Porter, Ritchie," Ross, Signor,
Slough, Stinson, Stairwalt, J. Wright and
Wrigley, for Topeka 29. 'Burnett, Blunt,
Burriss, J. Blood, N. C Blood,"" Crocker,
Hutchinson J Hanway, Hoffman, . Stokes,
Simpson, Tbacher, Townsend and Wil
liams, for Lawrence 11. Graham, In
gaUs, Kingman, , Middle ton. Palmer and
T. S. Wright, for Atchison 6.
It is provided, however, that the first Leg
islature shall , make provision for the per
manent location of the Capital by the peo
ple. We hope that - Topeka is satisfied.
From the first Constitutional Convention
down to the present time, the people of
Topeka have been pursuing the shadow of
the 'Capital to the serious detriment of
their business interests, and .the .depletion
of their purses generally. They will now
have leisure to go to work to make their
town worthy of the (temporary) capital !
Peace reigns in Europe once again! Sol
ferino was the last battle! Austria gives
up Lombardy, her richest province, to Na
poleon, who in turn gives it to the King of
Sardinia. Venice and the Italian States
are to form a confederation with His Holi
ness the Pope' as honorary . President.
These are the results of a six weeks' cam
paign by the French Emperor. How long
this will last, no one can tell. The next
steamer may bring the news of another
rupture. Those tyrants sit so uneasily on
their thrones, that they are forever keeping
up a hubub to divert attention from home
affairs; fighting to preserve the "balance of
power" among themselves until, some fine
morning, they will find themselves without
even that to fight for, a3 the people will
have stepped in and taken the power into
their own hands, "balance" and all. God
speed the day.
Iiykins County. -This
county, which lies about seventy
five miles due east from Breckenridge, on
the Missouri river, is one of the best in
Kansas. Paola is the county seat, but Os
awatomie, the old' battle ground,, is the
chief town. A part of its territory is yet
included in the Miami Indian Reserve, and
a still larger portion was sold two years ago
as Indian Trust Lands. A large quantity of
these Trust Lands were bought up by spec
ulators who have thus far failed to get rich
by their purchases, though they have es
sentially impeded the growth and settlement
of the county. The taxes, and especially
those under the new road law, will be likely
to load some of them to repentance. v
We notice in a late number of the Osa
watomie Herald, that about one-fourth of al
the lands in the county are advertised for
sale for the payment of taxes. The quan
tity advertise 1 amounts to ninety-six thous
and three hundred and fifty acres while the
whole county contains but 368,640 acres,
including school lands and the .Indian Re
serve. In . Richland township alone there
are twenty-five thousand acres advertised.
The taxes in arrear are those of 1858, and
the fact that they are still unpaid, argues
that the speculation "don't pay." We
can't say we are. sorry for it but trust the
speculators will be made to "fork over,"
whether they get paid or not highway tax
and all. ' - . .
The result of the Land Sales at Lecomp-
ton, thus far, shows that land speculation
has received a back handed blow from 6ome
quarter, since out of the immense quantity
of land offered, scarce enough was sold to
pay the expense of selling. ,
Gold continues to arrive in Leavenworth
from the Mountains and it is said that large
quantities could be purchased of the mi
ners if there was coin sufficient; but that
article appears to be . scarce in the mines, j
The yield of gold is steady and uninterrupt
ed though not so large as was . anticipated
by many over sanguine persons. There is
said to be plenty of employment at good
wages for all who desire it. :. Several per
sons have gone to' the States for . quartz
mills. We believe there are. none now in
the mines, while a large quantity of rich
quartz has been taken out and is ready for
the "crushiug" process. There has been
quite a heavy emigration to the mines,
since the reports of the late - discoveries.

The Cokstitctio. The signs of the
times already indicate, that the Democracy
of the Territory contemplate opposing the
new Constitution ' : Having ? tailed, even
with fraud, to carry the elections so as to
get the majority in.- the Convention; and
having also failed in, several partizan . plots
while in that body, they -are ripe for a re
volt. They seemed to expect that the Re
publican representatives in that body could
be bought up for their votes on some petty
question of local interest. They have failed
in this. Tney are contemplating an oppo
sition, in hopes that anything that would
involve Kansas in. further confusion, might.
haply, result to Democratic . advantages

'.. . . :. Peace. -:r ' -. .
Our telegraphic dispatches tell us that a
peace has been concluded between the be!
ligerent3 of .Europe. Austria gives up
Lombardy to Napoleon, who, in turn, hands
it over to Victor. Emanuel and Sardinia.
Austria is permitted to retain Venice, but
merely under the authority of an . Italian
Confederation. This "Confederation'. is to
be formed, and to embrace all Italy.. The
Pope is to be Honorary President. . Poor
old man ! He was quite unable to . manage
the Papal States, and, unless his authority
is very "honorary" -which, by the bye, it
is likely to be he and Italy will both have
a very hard time. .
The terms of this treaty, we must con
fess, look suspicious. We can hardly re
gard them as denoting a permanent peace.
However, they will relieve the world of
these bloody wars for a time, (perhaps
short,) and from the still more bloody dis
patches of the victors. The history of Na
poleon III. is not yet written. This peace,
was made to be broken. Lawrence Repub

two hundred thousand men. , When last

One of the places in England just visit
ed by the Hon.. R. C. Winthrop was' the
old Chapter-House of the Cheshire Cathe
dral, which is now the library, and here he
saw two standards, somewhat tattered and
torn, suspended over the doors. On in qui
ry, he was told that they were . the stan
dards of the Cheshire Regiment, and that
they were used in America, at a certain bat
tie called Bunker Hill, where it was said
that" only three of this regiment escaped
without injury of some sort. , The keeper
said it was understood that the Americans
got behind some sort of a fence or .hedge,
where they could shoot others without be
