, GOV. GEARY'S LETTER
The following letter was received by the
Secretary of State on Wednesday last :
Lceompton, K. T., Oct 10 1350. j .
Sirs Your letter of the 23d ultimo, in
reply to' mine of the 9th, and your telegraphic
despatch of the 27th ultimo, in reply to my
letter of the 15th, were both received on the
evening of the 8th instant.
Despatches forwarded since the dates of
those acknowledged, have informed you that
peace and quiet have been restored to the Ter
ritory. Not only have all large bodies of
armed men been dispersed, but the smaller
bands of marauders have been driven off.
The roads are all traveled with safety, and
dwellings are secure from intrusion For up
wards of two weeks no outrages have been
authentically reported. Many notorious and
troublesome agitators, claiming to belong to
all parties, have left the Territory, and the
benificent influence of their absence is being
already very sensibly felt.
The troops Bent to the north have not yet
returned. It is my purpose to leave on the
northern frontier a considerable foree for its
protection-; and the remainder of the troops
will be employed to guard such other points
as may seem to require it. I shall shortly
proceed in person with a small body of men
to the Southern porthu of the Territory, in
pursuit of a gang of thievts who are said t
be pillaging that region.
Verr respectfully your obedient servant.

Governor of Kansas.

The District Court in one of our northern
parishes was in session 'twas tho first day of
the Court ; time, after dinner Lawyers and
others had dined and were sitting out before
the hotel, and a long, lank, unsophisticated
countryman came np aud unceremouiosly made
himself one of 'em, and remarked :
4 Gentlemen, X rcieh you would go on with
this Court for I want to go Lome I k-ft Bet

Why, sir,' said ihe countryman, ' I'm

home they will have to find me, and they
inoun't do that, as I live a good piece.'

Great Forgery in New York.
One of the boldest and most successful
swindles of the times has just come to light in
JNcw York. C. 13. Huntington, a note bro
ker on Wall street, acquainting himself with
what paper various houses had out, has contii
ved to counterfeit a large portion. The am
omt of his forgeries, as far as they have been
developed, exceeds the sum of half a million
of dollars with a fair prospect of an increase
Wall street is said to be in a high state of ex
citement. We extract the following from the
Herald, with legardto Huntington:
" The career of Huntington has been like
a display of fireworks brilliant, but evanes
cent For a little while he spent money like
'water. IIo had six or eight horses, two pairs
for carriages for himself and wife, and sever
al fast trotters. His sideboard was brilliant
with massive plate. He wai a great man at
Saratoga, Niagara aud Rockaway, where his
wife had more, trunks and more diamonds
than any one else ; and iu town he kept up
two matrimonial establishments, one regular
and one irregular one a Christian home, the
other a Mahomcdan seraglio one according
to the laws of New York, and the other ac
cording to the customs of the Mormons with
in a few doors of each other. lie was a prince
for an hour. People ate at his dinners, drove
his horses, drank his wine, borrowed his mon
ey, and wondered how he got it all. But the
crash came at last, and what are all his for
mer splendors compared with his present po
sition ? He bought his luxuries at a tremen
dously high price."
A Plea for the Democratic Party.
From the Washington Union.
We would most earnestly invite every true
friend of our common country to look dispas
sionately, at this eventful moment, to the Dem
ocratic party to their confidence and support.
About lf99, the Democratic party had its
first existence. From that time to the pres
ent, with the exception of about eight years,
the government has been administered by this
If the merit and commendation of a party
depend upon the benefits that ensue to the
country from its administration and this is
the only safe test then has the Democratic
party the strongest conceivable claims for
praise and support.
The fruits of fifty years of Democratic ad
ministration are spread out, in all their ampli
tude and unequallled blessings, over the entire
length aud breadth of our land. The history
of the world affords no such evidence of na
tional growth in population wealth, expan
sion, variety and amouut ot resources, pnysi
cal and intellectual improvement, domestic
comforts, and, in fact, every clement that en
ters into and constitutes the gicat sum of hu
man happiness, as that which has been vouch
safed to the thirty millions of people in the
We know that the great foundation of these
blessings is to be traced to the peculiar struc
ture of our government. Put we claim for the
Democratic party a wise and faithful adminis
tration of the great principles that constitute
They have ever been faithful to the consti
tution. They have always bowed to the be
hest of the people in their sovereignty. They
look to the unity of the States as the life-spring
of the republic." They have a faith and devo
tion that knows nothing less than our entire
nationality. In their course of civil policy,
they travel upon the great highways that were
marked out by the fathers of our government.
They have never been seduced from this ear
liest allegiance by any of the speculative or ex
perimental forms of parties, factions, or isms,
that have been the prolific offspring of diseas
ed minds, or wayward ambition. They claim
no uovt-Ity, aud they p omisc no miracles
They are of the people and with the people,
carrying out their sound, common-sense prin
ciples, as the only safe line of duty. They
ask to bo judged by the product of their coun
sels for fifty years, and their value to the re
cipients at this da)'.
With those countless blessings on our land
what inducements is there for our people to
venture upon the novel and perilous schemes
of Kuovr-Xothitigism aud Black Republican
ism? As far as we can penetrate their myster
ies or scniprehen 1 their objects, they are re.
plete with misc-kcif aud danger. They strike
at the saeredness of the Constitution, at the
inviolability of civil an 1 religous liberty, and
the perpetuity of our glorious Union.
What can they give us for the loss of any
one or ullof the: mighty bulwarks of popular
sovereignty' What can they give us that
is bttir than what we now have? If we sub
mit to their rjriirruncHtx, and they fail, where
shall we be? If they subvert the proud and
invaluable monumeuts of our fathers, whom
can w.j look to to reconstruct the broken frag
ments, and bring order out of chaos? Would
it not be madues? would it be not criminal?
would it not be suicidal to peril all that God
has blessed us with, and the mighty heritage
of our fathers, to follow the revealed treach
ery of false guides, and the promises of bad
meu in the pursuit of national ruin ?
The wisdom and prudence that have here
tofore guided our country through all it3 tri
als we should not forsake in this hour of pro
bation. The Democratic party is the only le
gitimate party now in our country. There
arc factions aud isms claiming to be parties,
but they arc nothing more thau fungi with the
poison of the tood-stool.
This is the political complexion of things
at this time. A few days more, and the pop
ular voice of the country will decide between
the claims of an old, long-tried, and faithful
party, aud the discordant element that mus
ter under the banner of faction.
Temperature of tuk Earth. Curious
Fact. Tt has been ascertained by accurate
scientific investigation, that the increase of
temperature in the earth is about ten degrees
Fahrenheit for every fifteen yards of descent.
In all probability, however, the increase will
be found to be in geometrical progression as
investigation is extended, in which case the
present crust will be found to bo much thinner
than it has hitherto been calculated to be;
Taking, then, as correct, tho present observed
rate of increase, the temperature would be as
follows : yater will boil at the depth of 24
oO yards ; lead melts at the depth of 8 100
yards ; there is red heat at the depth of seven
miles ; gold melts at the depth of twenty-one
miles ; cast iron at seventy-four miles ; soft,
iron at ninety-seven miles ; and at the depth
of one hundred miles there is a temperature
equal to the greatest artificial heat yet observ
ed a tcraperatur o capable of fusing platina,
porcelaiu, and indeed every other rafractory
Steamboats, Railroads and Telegraphs.
Before the year 1800, there was not a single
steamboat in existence, and the application of
steam to machinery was unknown. Fulton
launched the first steamboat in 1804; now
there are three thousand steamboats traversing
the waters of America, and the time saved in
travel is equal to 70 per cent- In 1800, there
was not a single railroad in the world. In
the United States alone there are now 8797
miles of railroad, costing 206,000,000 to
build, and about 22,000 miles in England and
America. The locomotive will now'travel in
as many hours a distance which required in
1S00 as many days to accomplish, In 1S00,
it took weeks to convey intelligence between
Philadelphia and New Orleans ; now it can
be accomplished in minutes by tho electric
telegraph, which only had its beginning in
The Real Issue.
From the Washington Union.
The true and real issue in the present con
test, let Abolition Republicans change and
disguise it as they will, is " Shall the people
of the Territories have the right to govern
themselves, to make their own laws and exe
cute them free from any interference from
without ? And shall the citizens of all the
States in the Union be entitled to equal rights
and privileges when they emigrate into the
This principle, which is the same that our
ancestors fought and struggled for through the
revolution the right of man to self-government
is the principle for which the National
Democaatic party is now contending. And
why should the citizens of the Territories be
denied the right of self-government, a right
that he has enjoyed iu the States '? Is an en
terprising, persevering Yankee leis capable
of self-government in Kansas or Oregon than
he is in Vermont or Connecticut ? Has he
less sense, less experience, or less capacity to
make and execute his own laws after emigra
ting to the Territories thau he had in New
England? Is a Virginian less qualified to ex
ercise the right of self-government in Kansas
or New Mexico than in the Old Dominion ?
Do the citizens of all the States forfeit these
der and inalienable rights by emigrating to
the Territories ? Ho they bid adieu to them
when they leave home and friends, and the
old paternal roof, or do they carry them wher
ever they may go in the West, on tho wide
domain of our common country ? The Dem
ocratic part' maintains that the rights of an
American citizen are the same everywhere on
This the Abolition Republican party denies,
and claims the right of one half of the Union
to dictate to the other It is useless for them
to shriek for "bleeding Kansas," and protsst
that they are contending for the repeal of the
44 bloody code " The Democratic party in
Congress offered to repeal every objectionable
law in that obnoxious code.
This the Abolition Republicans refused to
do. Why ? Because they wished the noto
rious Lane, who was thee marching to a quiet
and peaceful Territory with a band of marau
ders and murderers, to have perfect immuni
ty to pillage, rob, and murder peaceful citi
zens, that they might thus lay in a stock of
44 Kansas outrages" to shriek over during the
The Democratic party wished to repeal un
constitutional laws, and leave the good and
wholesome laws for the protection of the lives
and property of peaceable citizens. The Ab
olition Republicans wished to abolish all law
and order, and let the robber and murderer go
free, and place him on perfect equality with
the peaceable, law-abiding citizen.
The contest is now between these two be
tween the constitution and disuniou between
law and order, and anarchy and confusion
Let the first succeed, and the Union is safe
Establish this principle of the right of man to
govern himself everj'where on American ter
ritory, and our form of government is adapted
to any extent of territory, any amount of pop
ulation. Let each section regulate and con
trol its own local legislation, and it can em
brace the whole continent, can take in Canada
and Mexico, and still work on smoothly and
On the opposite principle, it ii not adapted
even to the contracted boundaries of the old
original thirteen ?tates. O ncc let this princi
ple, that all the citizens of all the States have
no, equal rights in the Territories. bE estab
lished by placing the Abolition Republicans
in power, and one half of the Union is placed
in the same position with regard to the other
half that our country occupied towardt En
gland just before the Revolution ; for if the
rights of the South arc to bo trampled upon
and taken away, it is a matter of but small
consequence to the citizens of the South where
the tyrant that despoils them of their rights
lives whether in Old or New England. It
is all the same to them whether he holds his
court in London, or in Boston, or in New
York. What course they would pursue in the ev
ent that they should be unfortunately placed
in this position whether they would tamely
give up their rights and submit to the oppres
sor, or act as our ancestors did in the revolu
tion it is not for us to say The question
can be brought home to our Northern friends
though, by asking how they would act if the
fifteen Southern States should claim the right
to govern the whole country should nomi
nate a candidate from their own section with
a determination 44 to rule the Union or leave
the Unioni' to subjugate the North and de
spoil her of their rights ; or, failing in this at
the ballot-box, should threaten to resort to
bullets, as the leaders of the Abolition Repub
lican party have done ? Let Lexington, Bun
ker Hill, and Saratoga answer.
We are encouraged, however, by the late
indications in Pennsylvana, Ohio, aud Indi
ana, to cherish the hope that our attachment
to our Northern brethren will not be so severe
ly tested. We have confidence that a large
majority of the North are in favor of preserv
ing the Union, aud sustaining the Constitu
tion inviolate from the ruthless assaults of
vandal Abolitionists. This is all the citizens
of the South ask. They claim no exclusive
legislation for their benefit, as is often falsely
affirmed. They cling to the Constitution as
the very palladium of their rights and liber
tics. They rally around it when it is in peril-
Let all patriots, then, both North and
South, who love the Union, and desire the
peace, prosperity, and happiness of their com
mon country, unite in one great effort in sup
port of the National Democratic candidate;
James Buchanan, and our country is safe.
Pieligious Liberty in France. Louis
Napoleon has positively and peremptorily or
dered the prefects of France to allow to all the
Protestants in their district the free and un
disturbed exercise of their religion, desiriuo
that he may hear of no mere persecution of the
Protestants, and that they may never aain
be disturbed in their worship.
A Gentleman. A young man was sen
tenced in Pittsburgh- last Saturday, to six
month's imprisonment in jail for assaulting
another with knuclders." His counsel,
previous to the passing of the sentence, solici
ted leniency for his client on the score of good
character and gentleaianly conduct generally.
The judge replied it was fortunate for him
that he w-as not indicted for an attempt to
murder, and said when people with gentle
manly culture and good characters performed
such deeds, he should punish them as rowdies
and ruffians. 44 The first gentleman of the
land shall faro no better than the poorest
. S3T English travelers repre sent the Amer
cans as a debilitated, degenerate and sickly
race, and the nonsense is reiterated in this
country by those who ought to know better.
It is a little singular that such an enfeebled
race should have accomplished more physical
labor in subduing an entire continent in less
than two centuries than all the nations of Eu
rope have effected for their own countries in
the same time. Physically, morally, and men
tally there is no more vigorous race than the
Americans on the globe. They live as long,
are as hardy and well developed, can endure
as great an amount of fatigue, and accomplish
as much labor, mentally and pl-sically, as
any other people. They have peopled a con
tinent and cultivated it till it produces abund
ance, have traversed it with railroads and tel
egraphs, built up a commercial marine equal
oft he largest, and established the best consti
tutional government that was ever devised by
man. We want no bciter evidences thau these
io the vigor of their physical or of the activity
and strength of their mental constitutions.
S3" In one of our courts lately, a man who
was called on to appear as a witness could not
be found. On the Judge asking where he
was, a grave elderly gentleman rose up, and,
with much emphasis, said :
' Your honor, he's gone.'
,v4Gone! gone !' said the Judge, 'where is
he gone ?'
4 That I cannot inform you,' replied the
cemniuniJJcive gentleman, 4 but he is dead "
