- . Apprentice Wanted.
--A boy from 14 to 16 years of age
wanted immediately at this office to learn
the printing business.
- 23T A Journeyman Printer wanted
immediately at this office. To a good
workman of temperate and steady habits
constant employment will be given.
g3T Desirous of getting the new Con
stitution before the people of Kansas at
as early a day as possible, and being un
able to get out a full sheet this week,
we have concluded to give it on a half
sheet, presuming that it will be very ac
ceptable even in that form.
Murder Most Foul.
Our town was thrown into a high state
of excitement on Thursday last by the
intelligence from near Hickory Point,
in this Territory, that Chxs. W. Dow,
a young man about twenty-two years of
age, was most barbarously murdered by
a party of demons who rejoice in the ap-
ptllation of "border ruffians." Mr. Dow
had been to a blacksmith shop where
several of these demons incarnate were
congregated. One of them drew a rifle
oo. him, and threatened to bhoot him on
the spot, but finally set down his weapon
without injuring any one. Mr. Dow
started to leave, and got away a few rods
when his attention was directed towards
the shop by the explosion of a percussion
cap. .Looking arouna ne received a
charge of buck shot in his bosom from
a wretch named Colmak, and fell dead
upon the spot.
An attempt was made to arrest the
murderer, but he was secreted by his
pro-slavery abettors, and escaped to Mis
souri. The people will assemble on
Monday, and execute summary punish
ment upon the entire party who were
present, and accessories to the murder,
if "they can be found. We wait with
anxiety for further developements.
Horrible Accident Loss of Life.
The boiler of Messrs. Morris Hunt &
Co.'s steam saw mill, in this city, ex
ploded on Wednesday morning last,
with a terrible report, laying everything
in ruins it came in contact with.-
Mr. Monroe, a young man about
eighteen years of age, and Wm. Patter
son, Esq., were standing near tlie mouth
of the boiler, at the time of the accident
The former was thrown upon his back
with a heavy amount of the falling ruins
upon him, and killed almost instantly.
The latter was thrown back some twelve
or fifteen feet, and was taken up for
dead. Mr. P. was soon restored to
consciousness, but it was found that his
hip jnint was-dbW.atod, qriiJx . a... ciaipla
fracture of the thigh bone, and that he
had received a severe concussion on his
head. He has remained delirous up to
the present, and is in a critical condition,
and but little hopes are entertained of
The loss to Messrs. Hunt will be very
severe, as it occurs at a period when it
is probable it will be impossible to re
pair before next spring, the cost of doing
which cannot be less than $1,000.
Rumors are again in circulation of an
intended onslaught on Lawrence by hired
mercenaries from Missouri for the avowed
purpose of "enforcing the laws," but for
the real purpose of carnage and plunder
The rumor is got up by Missourians to
frighten the timid, and for efiect on Con
gress. No one need have any anxiety
about a general descent on Lawrence, as
our neighbors are too well posted in rev
olutionary history to desire to come in
contact with the desendents of the par
ticipators in those stirring timjs.
" We have been threatened so long we
are really desirous to see an army of a

.3T Gov. Roeder arrived at his old
home in Easlon, Pa., on the 5th of Nov.,
and received a public reception from
his former townsmen. His speech w
replete with interest, giving a faithful
narration of all the difficulties along the
border in Kansas, and a sketch of Pres-
lident Pierce's interference.
T 3TThree accidents of a most painful
nature, have occurred on the Pacific
Railroad since it was opened on the first
of November. At the first, twenty-six
lives were lost, and many were wounded
who will be cripples for life.

of workmen from this time forth we
shall expect to appear before our readers
regularly, unless we delay one week on
account of getting into our new office,
which probably will be the case.
