,awfC2(Tr Salurd'ay, July 2!i 1SJJ, Qor. Feeder's Suspension. It is reported that Gov. RsDKa,on arriving at $e Shawnee Mission, on Mon day Utr &snd; fetter from Secrete?? Marcy,Jalbnmng him that he was sus pended - A meaner.act, we conceive, was never cortsanisaaied by. any admiuistra-j tion. J?rank Pierce, for that act, de serves the detotaiioa of every 'American citizen. Wkbont manliness to ascribe his "motive to its real cause, he pretends it Was done for the Governor's, specula: tions ia Kaw lands. ' .- What are the facts m regard to those Lands? A number of lialf breed Iiv dians each -.purchased of govenimeut a quantity , of the public domun to the aiaouat of one mile square, and located it jtqn the north side of the Kansas river, ly ing between the Delaware lands on the fast and the Fotaw3totaie lands cn inc wesx. making a strip one mi thirty miles l&ng. North of-this strip was tlie prcttiot prairie in Kanwvr, and all ojen tD fctllct; tut there was no Way to'gct theiver,.bcaai ft la.iliof the Kaw Iniiiss .inergf rT,.n.ar-: rttl7:a ; r7.1 vWchave KworVi brail the tutelary prf . aad Piitfi?t Artcrr ?p ) god?1- that no aboKdou press or aholiu'on thAsl'sai tlxrr C5ficivc i J& pr-iCViGty of i i$t shall remain in existence south of Ma- buTusg up a'fc ctlois,. fio'dyabtcoa ten: J la ling they :would , uiiisaatcly. ;bo greatly cabaacid ia value.

Until this was done it was no contract. The Indian agnt has never sanctioned the agreement, outlier, has it been submitted to the President for hi approval consequently no harm has or can accrue, to' any X one in- .conse qoence of the negotiations which passed between Gov.

The; lands all around there could be bought from government for . $1,25 an -acre, but be cause persons could not reach the river with their produce they liave been in duced to se ttlor in other localities. .We were over these lands a fewwcelc ago, and found them as valuable as any in the Territory' and yet '' they arc entirely passed by, for. the very good reason that there is no certainty of their. having amarlcet in'the future on the river. , Frank Pierce, voccupykig his elevated position, and looking out over the whole republic,; deems the most flagraut outrage committed" byany person appointed dur ing his., term of office to be the specula- tions in those lands, and consequently he fays the ax at the-root of the tree, and cuts down the offender. What has he accomplished ? ;iNothing hut to gain the detestation of-all who know or take pains lo inquire into the facts. . .' - As to the removal of th Governor. Was there ever a moro shallow pretext for doinga mean tiling than the one which Pierce has devised. ; he facts in relation to these lands had been a public matter . for nine raorrtBs, and the subject of news paper criticism during all that period - The Governor visited Washington, and ' was in- consultation with the President and heads of departments for three weeks. Not a word was whispered to Governor Reidkr about his offending.

ITot True. -The Leavenworth Herald, writing for "buaepmbe" ia Missouri, says, "fiye sixtli8of the citizens of Kansas are in fa vor of making this Territory a slave State,'.' and in proof refers to the election for ; delegate io Congress "last fall, and then to the election for the Legislative O Assembly Jri .Marclu. , The . editor, who would make such an assertion, can have no regard for his character for veracity, for it is a notorious fact that there is not an election district in Kansas Territory to-day but would poll three votes, of the actual voters in such, district fot freedom, to one for tlavery. The Leavenworth district, -which is conceded to be the stronghold of tie pro-slavery party in Kansas, will give a large majority of free Sta'e votes, if not controlled by external iufluences. Any intelligent person at all acquainted with the people there, knows such to be the fact. The Ttrt Scott district is principally settled -by people from Missouri,, but we deny moj-t posit"velythat they are iu fa vor of making .Kansas a sbyc State ; on the contrary they are as energetic friends of freedom as .we luve in the Territory. They differ witbmany others in regard to, minor issues, but declaio almost una:i-iinously-r that if free rnrsons of color can be excluded from the TiTritory, they are decidedly in fa vor of excluding the slave.' Thousands of. free Stato men from other Vv eitcrn, . and . some from the Eastern States, take this position, assuming that as there are no free persons of eolor here now, no injury will be done to them by keeping them out of the Territory, and by Liking this course they will secure a powerful influence in, favor of making Kansas a free Siaic. v We met in Pawnee the other, day a miserable doughface from Indiana, who we believe was a candidate for every office ia the Legislative; Assembly, from Clerk ja tho Council to Door-Keeper in the House and who lost them all- who claimed that everybody, irf the Fort Scott district was pro-slavery ; but we saw five free Suite MissoUrians from the same-district the other day, who gave us positive assurances to the contrary. -. . - Thc.trath is; aad'it b needless to as sert :othcrwie,.iha: theiidc ofprs!avery emigratioa tcwards Kansas has begua to ebb, and at this time the slave Sta'e emi gration is larger from Kansas to Missouri tfian ic. versa, Every well informed person in'the Territory,-who. has been a close observer of men and things and movements in ,difforent sections, knows this to be the case. .The Leavenworth Herald may struggle asThafd as i wilHo inspire', confidence ''among . pro-slavery men, 'ana thereby; induce emigratiou to Kansas, but intelligent slaveholders arc not going to run a. risk of losing what they conceive to be property on such barefaced representations.

So- in an old borrowed sun-bonnet and our bare arms, we peeped around .'tlic corner of the house to see what wa3 going on.- There stood the editor of the Herald of Freedom displaying. with an exultant air, a pair'of moruing-glories, of a richer pur ple" than we have been wont to see ; and other admiring eyes were feasting on their evanescent loveliness.

P tinncUced,' supposing u paper pass "aanouceu, supposm: was well understood that its name was a lie and of course its subject matter bat little better; but lest some persons at a distance may npt.understaad its character I pro pose to. point out a few falsehoods in the article I have alluded to, and let the wri ter pass for what he is worth. The ditor quotes ' from some' paper some remarks about the Emigrant' Aid Company's operations, and says the. au thority 'is a letter from Mr.5 Pomeroy to the N. Y. Tribune. - This ho knew .was false from the reading of tlw quotation, if he Lad no oher evidence of it. Mr. Pomeroy never wrote a letter like that, although if he hajritis much nearer the pany, may "have visited these eight paint"! :ind sketched towns m bus mind s, eye, but made no further improvement, except locating a mill at two of the places, Lawrence and Topeka, mills that have done no good whatever as yet." hU Q cj3roWn te his money to build his city with, and if he finds that a part or all of it comes from the agents of the Emigraut Aid Company, wil he have the candor to own up? Certainly not, unless he departs from his usual course. Of course, if aid lias been furnished ta any. other place except Lawrence or Topeka, the above statement contains a falsehood ; but then a falsehood, although it would look, bad iu Gen. Pomeroy, is in perfect harmony with the Free State, and no one would ihinkitatall out of place. "Any man who cares anything about his . reputation for veracity, would bo very sorry to state that these" tilings" were so, -.but it is not to be presumed that the editors of the Free tate have any such, care, for . what good whatever as yet." What does the writer mean by "doing no good"? If he means that the mills have done uotlr irtg towards dividing the Free State party or for the introduction of slavery into Kansas, he may be light; but if he means that tliey. have furnished no lumber for the citizens of -the Territory, or for its improvement, there is about as much truth in tho remark as usually' ctmes from that paper whea speaking of the Emigrant Ai"d Company. During the List five months tie "mill at Law rence has sawed 160,000 fret of 1am ber, and in all, since-it started, about 200,000 'feet,- according to the mill books, and this has all been used for im provements in the Terri ory. 'Tnis is something, and if it Jias done ."no good whatever" itmust;be an injury. S'o doubt the editors of the Free State regard it as an evil, for all that does riot aid :in making Kansas a slave State, is presumed to e considered by them to be positive evil. If not, what 'can they inearr by saying that the mills have "done no good whatever ?" The mill at Topeka hjis not been in operation as long as the -one a L;iwrence,but l am infoi-med it is doinjj a very good business. If these mills are doing "no good whatever' what can bo said of other millsf for, bad as they are, they have Fawcd as .much lumber as any mil) in the Territory, so far as I canjearn, and I am told that the mill at Lawrence has sawed, since the otlier mills at this place started,' as much. dumber as both of them, and the .sawing Was. much better done. ... But these other mills arc puffed aud complimented by the Free State as great blessings,-while a miir that does u'farly or quite as muchas both, is re garded as a "perfect nuWance." Again he says-: . , : . ' . . ' "The mill here is a perfect nuisance: The hotel, which has been building ever since die Company .had an existence, still lingers. "It is. now up one .story, 'the work having stopped, and the contractor has, taken his hands oif, not being able to get bis pay, and of course cauuot go on with the work." ;: f ; The above statemcnl, that the work on the hotel has stopped, tc, is j'ust about as true- as the rest of the article, and con tains not a word of truth, as any one in Lawrence may know. . ; . Again;' "The mill and hotel are all they have attempted here, and they have done nothing at other points."' . ; : It'is unnecessary, to say 'to any one here in Lawrence, that every word, of the above "is utterly false, aid the writer knew it tobe false when he wrote it. -"'" f,On"ee inorc ". " " ' , "This hotel bebig delayed thus, has beeii more injury to the phice than all other, "tbin'gs jcombuied. ". Hundreds" of persons have left outplace fur .want of a comfortable hotel - "to : stop . at. Yet the Company will neither do any thing itself, uor give tip the woit Co individuals who woulLput it up immisdiady. . We think (hat tliis powerful Company has scared the citizens of Lawrence into acquiescence, silence and submission long enough. If you have any regard for your .owa, pecuniary, intores-ts, you will no longer , submit to their tantalizing humbugging operations.. "Let us have a liotel ready tor the reception of the im mense emigration that will pour in. here in the fall. It is suicidal for us to de pend oalhe 'Aid , Company .doing any thing for Lawrence, or for any other point in Kansas Territory." , , . - ; Indeed 1 This is deplorable. .-It is remaik'tblo that Lawren.oe, with, this Company injuring it so much, .should hive grown at all, and psrfestJy astonish ing that it should be the. first town ia the f'inr ' in nuint if . nnm!r n?l irr we - do not gi ve up the work - mdiid uals who would put up tlie botel -''immediately. ; Well, we have done so, and those individuals have boon at work for -several weeks as. fast as hey could ob tain material to work with. , .The above will do very well for talk, but until very recently, . if now,, there haa , not .been ready money . enough, .

"for surelythe Emigrant Aid Company will not. attempt to, monopolize the "business. We have never put any man under bonds not to build a hotel, or college, or any thing else, and I am very sorry if we have deprived any individual- who was anxious to put up these improvements "immediately"-' of that privilege.

R03ISS0X ; : " LoUer from lir gutoul?oa. , -. v " LAWEKC3,-Ju3yv2!, 1955. , Mr. Ecitor: I believe-tho public should be informed of the proceedings bv which ten of the legally elected members have beenousled from the Lgisfasureof the Territory, and their places . filled by men admiite-d without even Che shadow of right, or fiction of law; and believing it to be my duty togive publicity to those facts coming within my observations, and the duly of every one whose rights have been openly in fringed by such high handed villainy, elofdted under the pra tenseofkwaad iormality, I dd not hesi tate to ask publication of this letter thro', your paper. Before speaking of the proceedings at Pawnee at the convening of the Legisla ture, 1 will state my reasons for' taking the course I did. Prior to the convening of the Legislature, I was requested by some. ot my constituents to repudiate and resign. I did not feel that to bs. my duty. I thought it my duty af;Cr I had, as 1 be lieved, been legally elected,'' to accept an olfice.of trust,-responsibility, and labor, and received, the official certificate of my election; to go forward in the performance of those duties devolving upon me as an elected member. It wa.4 urged by some, that taking my sent .would be a recogni tion by. me of toe. legality of the tslectiou of those not legJilly elected! I 'did not think so, but considered taking niy seat, as directed .by that proclamation, a recog nition of no member's right to a seat hut my own; that I had a right to recognize, I was in duty bound to recognize it; I did recognize it by taking ray seat. " I did not consider that by doingthis'I endors ed the Legislature as a whole; that I rec ognized the legality of every member's riht to a seat. This act had no effect in sanctioning any member's right to a seat but my own. " It was with this belief and for a sense of duty that I was induced to sit as a member in the House. . I do not believe I could have done otherwise with out shrinking from my duty. . ' -1 We who were electedat the second election took seats, presented our creden tials, and wen? sworn into office. Ortllie first day of the session, all prsousin lending to contest seats were invited, by resolution; to.submit their protest imme diately Being notified that our seats would be contested, we met the committee ou credentials that 'evening, and we were called on to maiulaiu our. claims to a seat. The committee, when appointed, receiv ed no instruction to take evidence, but only to receive the credentials of members' aud : protests of contestants. When be fore the committee we presented "our cre dentials also the poll-books of our elec tion, and returns thereof. Our contest- bints offered the poll-books of a prior elec tion wnichliad been declared a nullity by tle Executive of the Territory. , . Upon the strength of this, and this ouly, they rested their clainrs. We de nied the right of this committee- to go behind the election whereon We received our certificate. They claimed a rjrht to do so. We then claimed the riarht of privilege .to summon witnesses to prove that we received a majority ot votes at tlie first election as affidavits which we presented showed most of the votes east for our opponents jo be .illegal to be those of jion-residents. '.. These affidavits were disregarded, although taken in due form of law. And after this summary moot investigation, tlie committee report ed that our opponents received the high est number of yoCes cast at the first elec? tion- henoc they were elected. They reported that the Governor, hadl no pow er to order a. new election, and therefore the second one at which we were elected was illegal.-. . That tho Governor's oWuti calewas no proof of our. election, bat I that (hey. bad a right to eject Orjeceive memDers on tlie etiength ot. returns made ; even "without form, and. on the strength of the, poll books as handed in without being sworn to. ' . . After the report of the. committee had been received we still claimed ktid aiked' the privilege to produce evidence to prove: tnat we. were ejected at the first election by a majority of tlie legal'votes easU We .claimed this as a right that xuld not pe aeuiea . u an - justice or m law , VYf were denied this ri 'fit.- We were denied it because we were'anabb to "cope with such aa adversary." The report was adopted r it received the vote .of every pro-slavery member acd hence we were compelled to vaca'ea seal givea us falily and v legally given us by a vote of the sovereign people of -the Territory.-: We were compe)ll to yield it to the repre sentation of aa-invading people from a ioreigti oim o. i xiave uono so ana leftthem "alone in their glory' ;. ' These aro the icts in referenco to th'e organization of, the: Psuedo-Legislature of this'Territory. Do the people recog nize that as. a legitimate body to legis late for this Territory? Are the peo pk thft soveieiga petple -Jiving under Uie i-LansAS-'ebnika bill eady to ac knowledge men voted for by lawless band of armed invaders, as their own cliose'n representatives? i Ave the people willing, after those by them elected have been thiust from this House, andpfe veoted from discharging their duty, to suhmiuto the usurped power of ji self consjitatod Legislature or a Legislature forced "upon us by mob power? , I wish not to dictate an v man's coarse of action; but feeling as I do that I have been wronged, first at the ballot boCnd again by being Tforced from the' House wjthout tBe privilege of proving my right therein feeling that outrage,- injustice and wrongs the most oppressive nave been perpetrated upon the people of this Territory, and all within the supervision of a republican government -T cannot believe it to be my duty, or the duty of any free maaj to submit to laws-thus forced upon us. I never will repudiate a law constitutionally and legally euacted; but I am just as strongly opposed to sub mitting to laws forced upon me by a for eign power, contrary to the voice of those whose right it is to rule. Let the sover eign, people of' the - Territory -consider Wi?e-ly and careluily wnatsnouid De aono ia tlustroublesome state of affairs. Tlie facts above are move.eswcially in iefer- ence to the ousted "free btate members from this represeutativo district; yet near ly, the same facts exist 'in-reference to all the ousted free State members.
