Several weeis ago we wrote Balis &
Hicks, dealers in printing paper at Kan
sas City, from whom we bare purchased
printing material (he last few mouths, that
we should rely upon them for our stock
of paper this winter. They wrote in re
ply that they should keep a large sapply
on hand, and would be able at all times
to fill our orders.
About four weeks ago we sent them
money in payment for a small stock.
They forwarded a portion of it, and wrote
that they were daily in expectation of re
ceiving a large supply by river, when they
would furnish the balance of our bill.
Since then we have heard nothing direct
from them, but have understood from
others that their stock was frozen np in
the river, and, hence, were unable to fill
their orders.
Witluhis issue our entire stock of pa
per is exhausted. Unless we hear from
Messrs. Balm Sc IIicks soon, we shall
seek a supply at St. Louis or Chicago, in
the interim the Hibald of Freedom must
be temporarily suspended. We greatly re
gret this, but it is owing to circumstances
over which we had no control. It is pos
sible that several weeks may intervene
before another iaeua, a w-a aava lU

stock of paper, we should probably con

transact some very important business
there which we have long neglected.

The discussion on the slavery question
still continues in both lwanches of Con
gress. The Senate, after a debate of sev
eral days on Mason's resolution for the
investigation of the Harper's Ferry inva
sion, came to a vote on it on the 14th
inst. Trumbull's amendment was reject
ed ayes 22, nays 32. Mr. Mason's resolu
tions were then unanimously adopted, 55
voting in the affirmative. December 15,
'the Vice President announced that the
special committee under Mason's resolu
tion had been appointed, and consisted of
Messrs. Mason, Davis, Collamer, Fitch,
and Doolittle.
On the 15th the House had three more
ballots for Speaker. On the first ballot
Sherman received 110 votes; Bocock, 85:
Gilmer, 22; scattering, 9. On the second
ballot, Sherman and Bocock received the
same number of votee. On the third bal
lot, Haskins, Hickman, and Schwartz went
over to Sherman, giving him 113 votes.

The Walnnt Countrr,
It was our fortune, a short time since,
to axutrul a nmuilo t( .1-..- h e
the Walnut, We first visited Chelsea,
which is situated in township 24, Range
6, and about thirty-five miles south-west
mm Cottonwood Falls, and fifty-five
miles Irom this place.
Chelsea is the county seat of Butler
county; and it is, in our estimation, des
tined to be one of the first towns in south
ern K.ana8. It is situated on the east
hank of the Walnut, some ten miles be
low Sycamore Springs. Just opposite to
the town on the west side, Cole creek
empties into the Walnut ; four miles
west is West I3rancb ; on the east, is East
Branch ; and just below South Branch,
these streams have rich valleys and are
susceptible of large settlements, the trade
of which must centre at uhelsea. They
have already a store in the place, and are
erecting a steam aaw mill of 45 horse
power, and have sent for a run of stones
to grind wheat and corn. They have
regular Congregational worship, sabbath
schools, sc. Kev. Mr. Sax by, formerly
of Iowa, has settled at this place.
Eldorado, twelve miles below, is the
county seat of Hunter county. It is sit
uated on the west bank of the Walnut,
where the old California road from Fort
Smith, Arkansas, crosses the Walnut river.
Eldorado has a nice location, and is the
center of a fine settlement, and will even
tually be no inconsiderable place.
When a railroad shall be built from
Topeka to Council Grove, down the Wal
nut to Fort Gibson, and finally to Galves
ton Bay, the Walnut will be one of the
richest valleys in Kansas. Emporia News,
ft7 Willis, in his letter describing the
American Watch Manufactory at Wal
thara, Mass., in speaking of the astonish
ing minuteness of some very essential
parts of the watch, says in regard to the
screws used in putting the works together:
"A small neap of grains was shown to us,
looking like iron bangs, or grains of pep
per from a pepper-castor, apparently the
mere dust of the machine which turned
them out and these, when examined by
a microscope, were seen to be perfect
serews, each to be driven to its place with
a screw-driver. It ia ana of tha Waliham
statistics which is worth remembering,
that a single pound of steel, costing but
arty cents, Is thus manufactured into one
hundred thousand screws which are worth
eleven hundred dollars."

Old John Brown in Virginia!
THE adventures of this famed Kansas hero
will be the theme of millions of tongues all
overthe Union, the coming wintor. Whatever
may be said of his rationality, one thing is cer
tain, the old man did what he has done, not for
himself but for over three millions of Slaves
now lying in almost hopeless bondage. If it was
right for our Revolutionary Fathers to obtain
tbeir freedom at tho cannons' mouth, ia it not
right for the slaves who suffer, as Jefferson has
said, an incalculably worse bondage than our
Fathers did.to imitate their example? And if
Lala ette did right in coming toAmerieatohelp
us. did not John Brown do riaht in ruin Lo Vir
ginia V help the slaves?
