our farmers and citizens generally, to give
vigor and character to the. movement. In
this matter all are alike interested. Let
the ball be once fairly set going and there
will be but little difficulty in keeping it in

The Editor started for Lawrence last Mon

been once run over by the go-hicle in which
he started and was then (the tail of the

one thousand live frogs, of different sizes
some of them large enough for a French- j
man's dinner, and others about three re-1

the cellar is a ; mystery we should like . to

A drove of one ' hundred head of cattle,
passed through this place one day last week,
bound for Illinois.- They were mostly
three and four years old, and were from the
farm of Mr. . Wm. Harpole, fifteen, miles
west of Emporial Mr. H. has entered
largely into the ; business of stock raising.
In addition to the drove above-mentioned,
he has as many remaining on . his place.
Mr. H. is an experienced hand at the busi

5 Next, week .we shall greet, our .readers
with , a. slight .change in the name of our
paper; which will thenceforth appear as
'The Emporia News'." We make this
change because we think it but fit and
proper that the paper should bear the name
cf the town that gave birth to and has thus
far supported it. The name, too, is a good
one; it has both a local and general signifi
cance. ; Altogether, we like it better than
the old one; and we do not doubt that a
majority of our readers will agree with 'us.
- Morris County.
We learn from John W, Ratliff, Esq., the
Assessor of Morris county, that the total
population amounts to 569 souls 199 of
which are legal voters and one a negro.
The people of Morris should take heed
to the black- population. And . see that he
dorCt rise! An insurrection would most
.probably lead to serious consequences; f
Council Grove . is the county seat and
chief town in Morris county, and is one of
the best business points south of Kaw riv
er. Several new and substantial buildings
have been erected there during the present
summer, and there can be no doubt. that if
the Eaw Indian title was extinguished,
Council Grove . would speedily become a
first rate town.
The very heavy shower of rain which
fell here on Tuesday last served to remind
us that about two years ago some "person or
persons to" us unknown," borrowed our
umbrella, and failed to return it. "This
therefore is to notify" the "said individual"
that he had better bring it back forthwith.
The Supreme court of no matter what
State, having recently decided that umbrel
lars are not public property, if ours is not
returned by the next shower we shall pro
ceed to sue out a writ of ,precogi-tarlar,t
(which, as Weller would say, "is one what
gits a feller as well where he aint as where
he tV) for the man who has it. If we
can't get anything else, we want the frame
of it either for a pre-emption shanty, or to
secure a town lot.
We have received No. I of a paper pub
lished at Kansas City, Mo by N.T. Doane,
called the Free State Republican. It is
what its name indicates a "Free State Re
publican" paper of the most radical stripe
What its prospects for success are we do
not know; but believe' that" Kansas City
knows too well what is for her best interest
not to support it. There are now two Free
Soil papers in Western Missouri the other
one being the SL Joseph Free . Democrat,
'The world moves," and Missouri is mov-
ing with it. Three years ago the mere
proposition to publish free soil sentiments
in Kansas City would have resulted in the
(at least,) of the per
son uttering it. But it isn't so to-day.
There isn't a business man in the city who
dare whisper, of such a thing as stopping
free speech in their midst. It would be
the death of Kansas " City and her business
men know it. - - , ' : -
It is reported that the Camanche, Arap
ahoe, Kioway, Otoe, Osage and Kaw tribes
of Indians are having a friendly meeting
on Walnut creek about 130 miles west of
Council Grove. ' Most of these tribes have
been at war with each other for." several
years, but' a grand treaty of peace has re
cently been made, by the Chiefs of the
different tribes,' and now the" tribes them
selves are ratifying it by having a grand
pow-wow together. There are some, per
sons who think all 'this bodes nO good to
frontier trading posts and settlements. We
are of the opinion," however, that the Indi
ans have bad sufficient' experience in the
way of wars with the pale-faces to learn
them a little wisdom; and they have full
knowledge of the fact that although the
whites are few and vveakjon, the frontier,' yet
they belong to a "mighty tribe," that is al
ways prompt to avenge the wiongs of the
least of its members."
Wm. T. Soden has purchased one-half of
