Tbe Sham Democracy and tbe
able John Rell.
A resolution bas been offered to the con
sideration of the House of Representatives,
by one of the sham democratic members,
endorsing the principles Oi the Kansas-Nebraska
Bill, condemning the coarse of lion.
John Bell in relation thereto, and demand
ing his resignation in accordance with al
ledged pledges. IXaring already elected a
successor to Mr. Bell, nearly two years in
advance of the expiration of his term, in
violation of the constitution as hitherto in
terpreted by the party, one would natural
ly have come to the conclusion, that the
sham democracy had accomplished enough
to satisfy their thirst for revenore, and their
keenest desire for office. But this appears
not to be the case. It may be that their
hate has been in some degree mollified; and
it is only the wish to reward another parti
san that governs them in this new demon
stration. We have no donbt there are
many, amongst the leaders, great and
small, of the party perhaps some amoncst
the disappointed aspirants who would be
satisfied with the poor gift of the remnant
of a term in the Senate, a the slave feels
rewarded by the gift of the cast off clothes
of his master; and we appreciate the will
ingness of members to make another at
tempt to do something for their benefit,
whilst at the same time, we apprehend, if
they should sneered in driving Mr. Bell to
a resignation, it might not benefit the par
ty much. Further disappointments would
But, about the principles of the Kansas
Nebraska Bill: what are they? What do
the sham democracy North and South ad
mit them to be? In the consideration of
the resolution mentioned above, there are
important points to be settled. If the
principles of the Kansas-Nebraska Bill be
the true constitutional solution of the qnes-
tions embraced by them, it is but just that
every one should know what they are. The
sham democracy of the North have con
tended that one of the principles enunciated
by the bill is "squatter sovereignty:" in
other words, that the people of a Territo
ry, whilst it is in a territorial condition,
have full power over the question of slavery,
and in their territorial legislation, or in any
other mode they may adopt, can prohibit
or permit it, create or abolish it, as they
may choose. Southern members of the
party also entertain this opinion amongst
them FTon. Geo W. Jones, and, it is be
lieved, Hon, A. Johnson, though he has
not perhaps distinctly committed himself.
On the other hand, the greater portion of
the Southern sham democracy, denounce
this doctrine as odious and tinconstitution
al, and contend that the Kansas-Nebraska
Bill enunciates an entirely contrary princi
ple the principle that the people when
they come to form a State Government,
and then only, have the power to dispo-e
of the institution of slavery. TTere is an
irreconcilable interpretation of the same
text an impassable gulf,- between the
Northern and Southern wing of the party.
Whilstvit remains, is it not absurd to con
demn anv man for dissenting to the Kansas
Nebraska Bill, and ask him to resign a seat
in Congress on the ground that his constit
uents have approved principles about which
there is no accord between the slave and
non slaveholding sections of the country?
Whenever the mover of the resolution
shall succeed in showing that the shnm de
mocracy North and South aree in the in
terpretation of the Kansas-Nebraka Bill,
and that the People of Tennessee have
pronounced in favor of that interpretation,
we undertake to say, although we do so
without authority, but such is our belief
that Mr. Bell will doff his Senatorial
robes, and let some sham democratic pig
my don them so 60on as the General As"
sembly lists. Will Mr. Williams essay the
task? It will be truly Sysiphic but let
him undertake it. It will afford him plea
sant, if not profitable employment.
The Kansas Election Frauds.
The following is the proclamation of the
Governor and Secretary of Kansts, re
specting the Johnson county frauds, refer
red to iu our telegraphic despatches a few
mornings ago. It certainly presents a bad
case for the ."national democracy" of that
Territory, as it evinces their willingness to
resort to the most stupendous frauds to re
tain power in their own hands. There are
other frauds alleged of but little less mag
nitude than this. It is indeed charged,
that at Kickapoo, in the actaal presence of
Governor Walker, fraudulent rotei to the
number of several hundred, were entered
upon the poll lists. Inasmuch as the re
jection of the Oxford returns will chango
the complexion of tbo Legislature, we deem
it proper to print the proclamation entire:
To th Pcopl of Kan$$ ;
Lkcom ptom, October 19, 1S57.
By the S2J section of the organic act establish
ing this territorial government it is provided in re
ference to the election of s delegate to Congress,
thtl "th- person having the greatest DainWr of
vote shall be declared by the (yovernur to be duly
elected, and a Certificate thereof shall be glveu ac
cordingly." By the 16th section of the act of the Territori d
Legislature of Kansas, entitled an act to reguleto
t-1- cilona," it is made the duty of the Secretary to
examine the returns in the presence of the Gov
ernor, and to "give the pet con having the hi h
et number of voted in their respective ditrlcu
certificates of their election to the legislative as
sembly." Under these two provisions of the prevail
ing la this trrritory, the recent general election
has prrsmted for the joint conaiaeratiou of the
Governor and Secretary a question of tbe gravest
importance, not nt ly to our own people, but al-o
toiboa- of the whole Uuioo. This question arise
upon the extraordinary returns made trout the pre
ciuct of Oxford, in tbe county of Johnson. V at
purport to be tbe re tarns of tbe election belj at
that preciuct oo the &th aud tVi inatant have bero
rived by the Secretary, containing aixtrea hun
dred and twenty-eight names of prttcu ied vot-ta,
uf uearly one ba f ot the ouutber piven la the wuoie
reprewnutive district. The opposition to U j
ua4e of this suppts d vote is rei.dereJ all impor-

decision and action upon election returns, in them
selves regular and authentic, tbe legitimate effect
of an apparent enormity such as that in question
would necpwaniy be to induce a close examina
tion or the paper presented, and to require for its
acceptance a perfect compliance with all the essen
tial provisions of the law. Such an examination of
this document,- concient:ouMy and impartia'ly
made, bas brought cs to the conclusion ibat the r -turn
from Oxford precinct, in Johncon county,
must b wholly rejected for the following reason':
1st. It does not appear on the face of the do o
ment presented to n, or in any other manner, tht
the judgee of election took the oath imprtiv-ly
r quired bv the etatne, to secure the 4 imp.rtia!
dfocharee of their duties according to law."
2d. It Hoes not appear that the ppr presented
to u was on of the two orisinal poll-hok8 kept
at the election, a required by hw; but, on the
contrary, it does appear from noraisukable inter
nal evilence, that the paper is either a copy of
some other document, or ha been ma up for tk,e
occision, and U not the genuine record ofth- vote
t-ken at the election. The la r quires one of the
poll-hooks to be returned to the pecrtary, the other
to be deposited with the clerk of the board ol cora-rai-pioner?,
of the proper countv.
3 i As the vote of each elector was to be record
e1 for each on- of twenty-two candidates, end in
more thn a hundred c s, for twenty-five, and that
by a viva voct vote, it whs a phvic d impossibility
that the numb r of vot- s pretended to have been
taken on th- peeond d ty. b'-ing more than fifteen
hundred, with the name of the voler writt-o, and
each of the twen'y two can'Hdites properlv desig
nated, could have been taken and recorded within
the time prescribed by 1-tw.
4th. It is an extraordinary feet, tending to tnrow
distrust upon the whole proceeding, that of the six
teen hundred and twenty eiybt vote only one is
given to the del. gate elect to Congress; and only
one hundred and twentv-foar are recorded as hav
ing been cast for the local candidates of tbe town
ship Influenced bv these ronsHerationa, and impre
sed with the fi-.ve reoponsihilitv re-ting upon us tn
reirurH tn Lhe (irneui of the . le?tion. and ia free-
torn from all frau-l susceptible ot detection ana
prevention within the scope of our duties, we
deemed it ensenti.l to trut and justice tbaf we
onid ascertain -very fact calculated to r fut- or
ti from the face of the
nap rs. According!, we went to the pretii ct of
Ox'ord. (which is a villas of eix house", inclu-ling
.inro and without a tnvenOand aBCertain.-d trotn
tho otfizena of that vieinitv. and especially those
of the handsome adjacent village of New Santa Fe
in uiicnnri faenaritxH onlv bv a street an! con
taining about tw- nty bouses,) that altogether not
more than one-tenth the number of persons repre
sented to have voted, were present on the two days
of the elrc'inn, much the smaller numb, r, not x
ceeding thirtv or forty being present on the l tstday
when more than fifteen hundred votes are repre
sent' d as having been given. The people of Oxj
ford as well as those of the neighboring village of
Santa Fe, were astounded at the magnitude of the
returns; and all persons of parties, in b'Hh
p'aces, treated the whole affair with derision or in.
dignation, not having heard the alleged result for
several days after it had occured.
In the course of our journey to and from Oxford
we passed over much the larger part of the rounty
of Johnson, and we became thoroughly sati-fied
that there is no population in the whole county from
which more than one-third of the vote of that sin
tl- precinct could have been given. We learned
that ome Very few persons, having cabins on the
reserve in Joht son county, and chiming a resi
dence th- rein, though generally absent, had voted
at Mme of the pre incu in that county; but we are
convinced tdat a very inconsiderabln number, not
r-ci in, we belit-ve, one hundred of VissouriatiS
or other persons having no admitted rkht to vote,
did claim or attempt to ex rcise that right an-wh.-re
within that county. The people of Mi-souri
cannot he justly charg- d with any interference with
the lite election, uor are they in -iny decree com
plicited with the evidently fraudulent returns nude
Irom ti e precinct of Oxford. Those returns be
yond all doubt, are eiruulited and tic itious.
Under th- Be circumstances we do not feel em
barrassed by any technical nifficulty as to our riht
to go behind the returns. We bold the returns
theR)-elv 8 to be defective in form and in eubstanc ,
and th r. fore inadmissahle. We go b. bind them
and inquire into the filCt-, only for the purpose of
asceitainins whether bv these valid otjeclions to
the mere returns, our rei ction of them will luve
the effect ol defeating the will of the people, sought
to be Itirly expressed at the polls. In the event
of such consequences, we might heMtate to r j ct
a vote upon any defect ol form, however essenlitl
in law. But in the present case, we feel ourselves
bound to aober.' to the vety letter of the law, iu or
der to defeat a gross and palpal le Iraud. The con
sideration that our own party, by this decision, will
los- the majoritv in the Leaiel itive Assem ly, do. a
not make our duty in the premises leM soleuiu nd
imperative. Tbe elective fr uchise would be ut
terly valueless, and Ire.- eovernment itself would
r. c. ive a deauly blow, if so great an outrage us
i hid could be ehi.Med under the cover of mere
forms and tecimicaliti. 8. We cannot consent, iu
any manner, to tiive the sanetion of our respective
cfhcial positionu to such a transaction Nor can
we feel justified to relieve ourselves of the proper
responsibility of our offices, iu a case wnere tnere
is uo valid return, oy submitting the question to
the Lei.ialttive Assembly, and in that v.-ry act,

clearly invalid, and, a- we believe, fictitious and

who appear to have been elected by virtue oi tbe
