For the Democrat.
Majok Bhatton: Your last num
ber has ju.vt come to hand, by which I
am informed that the Democracy of
little Vinton have nobly done their
duty, and carried the whole Demo
cratic ticket. You may well say that
"better Democrats don't live in Ohio
than the Democracy of Vinton coun
ty." I am much pleased to see that our
good Inend and vnjunching Democrat,
Bingham, has a majority over the traitor-
Hrd tUituiust make (ho ; tnisera
Hi trickster see himself as he is, that
i, it there is anything lelt of him.
Long may the Democracy of Vinton
lire, and their noble efforts be covered
with success as herctolore "and more
abundantly."
As was expected, the Democracy of
Old Athens are beaten, but not dis
heartened. As well as Vinton, we
had among us some renegades and
traitors, who, in times of prosperity,
could rally under the Democratic fiag
but who, coward like, went over to the
enemy in time of threatening adversi
ty, and are now "dead for want of
principle; still we have a spartan
Band Jelt, consisting of over a thous
and good soldiers, who stood up to the
charge during the hotest of the battle,
and although unsuccessful, have proved
themselves to be what they profess,
democrats, ''good and true," aud can
hereafter be Hied upon as such, while
suck reuegades as Hard, ol Vinton,
and Dtdlie, of Meigs, with some
names in Alliens, will be looked upon
with diatrust and detestation, by goJ
and thinking men of all parties. Let
them 'tlide;' we ar happily rid ol
them.
We have nothing new among us save
and except Jack'i valedictory a pre-
Cioua production, which you nave pror
abl seen ere this time. Jack has dis-
poaedcf all bis interest jo and about'
the Mtsrtitrer,"tn his "good will!
to "Gtorqe S, iV-alti, Esq-," and re
port says, intends to leave the country
Well, it may be for his country's good.
r II 1 1
j ins news is joy runy receiver oy near
ly all the readers ol the Messtoiqer,
and I have heard no regret expressed
by those who do not read it, at least so
far as Jack. doiiir'tlie editorial man.
Ule, is concerned; but the disnosimi of
his 'good will' is another thing if
that has to accompany the young gen
tleman who has taken charge of (he
Messenger, Heaven pitj him; for
Such -pood will" as Jack can doft"
Help uh, good Lord, to shake it on".
How much this change may be lor
the better, remains to be seen; one thing
is certain, it can'l bo for the worse
that is among the impossibilities. The
new editor is a very respectable young
man a practical printer and in all
probability, will make an clhcient ed
itor; he has at least one qualification
over Ins predecessor; tnat is, he is a
gentleman 5 and, therefore, will be
likely to give the messenger a clmrae
ter, such as it has not had for the last
eighteen months at least, its readers
hope so. Yours truly,
AN OLD ACQUAINTANCE.

from Gov. Shannon.
The following let'er, whic h we find
in the Richland Shield and Banner,
was writen by Gov. Shaknon to An
drew H. Pattebson Esq.of that county.
It is conclusive, and placet the base
conspirators who have misrepresented
him, in no very enviable position!
Now, that the election u over, and the
tricksters have gained power by fraud
and deception, will they admit the
truth?
EXECUTIVE OFFICE,
Shawnee Mission, K. T., Sept. 26.
lGth
Mr Dear Sir: Your favor of the
inst., is this moment received, stating
that you had a report goiug the rounds
'that I addressed the citizens oi wes
nort, Mo,, on my way to Kansas, and
that in my speech at that place I gave
as 8urances that in my official position
as Governor of Kansas, I would use my
ciprtion8 to promote the interest of
Slavery in the Tertitory.atid if necessary
to further and maintain their object I
would call upon the people of Missouri
toassist and support me.,
This is such an unmitigated falsehood
that there is no other way to reply to it
to denounce it as such There is but
one truih in the atatement of the re
port, aud that is," I make a speech a
very short one before I reached KansiS
Now, Westportis on the line, or with
in half u mile of it, between Missouri
and Kansas Territory, and it is two
and a half miles from the Shuwoe Meth
odist Mission, where I am located at
this tiuie.and where the temporary teat
ol Government for the Territory is estab
lished. For thirty miles west and
twenty-fiive miles south, th,e Shawnee
Indian Reserve extends, iu which, ex
cept at this Methodist aiisiiod, no
whites are allowed to settle, the con
sequence is, that every body coming
into the Territory at this point slops
at WeBipori, in Missouri. I done so in
common wi'.h every body,el se got into
Uifl pUce about sun down and remained
lieu day, which was Sunday and came
out here Mo udy morning. On Saturday
evening the citizens called in front et
the public house at which I stopped
and desired to give me a welcom to the
couutry. In making my appearatce b
fote them, of course, I made them
(hurt speech, in the course of which,
look occasion to sav.to tbem expressly
that I did not intend, nor would they
expect me on that occasion to discuss
the question of slavery. This was the
only allusion to the subject that
left that to be determ ined as provided
in the Kansas Bill.
this whole story except that I made
.speech it Wesport, is an out and out
fabrication: : substantially the same
nory baa been put io circulation in the
East, and the Leavenworth Herald,
ibis Territory, a, strong and powerful
pro-slavery paper, meets the charge ful
ly, and state my arrival in that Territo-
with entire accuracy. 1 Would tml
you a copy but I hats tent the only copy
I had to another fritud-the tru th i,
these- abolition papera had repriented
in a not only as a pro-tltiery mm but as
a blavery propagandist before 1 enieruJ
the Territory. It is necessary to make
Gov. Rerdera martyr iu the cause ol
liberty. The abolilioniti are running
him for Congresr It ii represented
