We have the melancholy and disagreea ble announcement to make to some per norm who have prophesied that we would noon "peg out," that we do not intend to peg" we are not one of tho "pegging kind" bnt intend to keep right on, the name as if such persons had novcr live We see brighter prospects ahead, than ever heretofore, and intend to do all in oar power to deserve a liberal patronage from the people of Northern Kansas. We take this occasion to bid an affec tionate farewell to a number of subscri- bcrp, who will receive the paper no longer, unless they Turk over and may the Lord have more on their souls ! 3T A terrible affair has recently oc corred in St. Louis. As Mr. Joseph Charlew, one of the most prominent bus iness men of the city, and a member of the firm of Chailcss A Blow, was quietly walking the street, a man named Thorn ton, without a word of warning, stepped np and shot him several - times with a pistol, inflicting wounds which mnst, ere this, have proven fatal. Tho provocation seems to have- 1ccn an old affair. A Bank of which Mr. Chailess was Presi dent, was robbed several years since, and Thornton, who was employed in the house, was suspected. Mr. Charloss ap icarcd against him as witness, but Thorn ton was not convicted. Tho late affair has created a tremendous excitement, and the military had to be called ont to gaurd the' jail, to prevent the mob from lynch ing Thornton. Ho is in a tight placo ; as a jory will in all probability hang him or, if they should fail, a mob will attend to bis case. -i ? " HW At the commencement of the gold emigration, we had supposed that it would be composod, for the most part, of ruffians and outlaws ; but from what we have seen, and heard from others, we find that a majority of the emigrants, are of the honest, and for a great part, the hot ter, class of community the real bone and sinew, and an honor and benefit to any community. Many of them mort gaged their little property, to go to the mines, in the hope of bettering their con dition ; and now they arc returning, ru ined. One who has been on tbe plaiiiB, says it is pitiful to behold theso porsons. While many are able to stand thoir losses, mill more are not, and their disappoint ment must be keenly fult by their fami lies, as well as them solves. There is a fearful responsibility resting upon those wlio have been instrumental in causing this misery. 5T While the returning emigration is pouring in from the plains, wo have been led to wonder what has becomo of those poor, infatuated beings, who started out in mid-winter,with band-carts, wheel barrows, or with only knapsacks, in which were bnt a few provisions ! They must have gono far on tho way, before they met the returning tide, and perhaps many of them reached the mines. While so many who went well provided have been reduced to a suffering condition, what mnst be the fate of those poor follows ? Jt3T In a late guess which we made, we are rejoiced to announce, we gucsssed wide of the mark. We guessed that McLane, of the Leavenworth Ledger, wonld go over to the Democracy. Bnt instead of doing that, ho has 'come out for the Republican ticket, and gives right sensible reasons for doing so. We take it all back, and say good for the Ledger! We wil here mention that, owing to the liberal patronago which has been bestow ed npon tlio Ledger, it will shortly appear in a new dress and an enlarged form.

We ask n careful perusal of it. J More Arrival from the Mines Hor .. .. . .. . rible Tales of Suffering. Two young men, named Erastns B. Qiffin and Preston Cotes, of Williams burg, Wayne County, Indiana, arrived here on Sunday week, direct from Denver City. They went out last October, and left Denver on tho 6th of May. A gen tleman in this place was acquainted with them, and pronounces them to be per fectly reliable. They prospected two montlis, and made 82.40, all told. They prospected np and down the Platte, and on the head waters of the Colorado. They think thore mar be some cold in the mountains, but there is no chance to get it, as thore is deep snow all the year round, with tho exception of about two months. The best day's digging they did, paid them 81.06. This was on another man's claim, who wanted to sell it, and come home. They asked to try it first, when they worked one day at washing dirt which the fellow had thrown up. They worked with a long torn and sluice, and washed ont 81.0G. They then worked four days longer, digging up the dirt for themselves ; and in the four days, they took ont fifteen cerUt ! After that, the pay was still smaller, when they gave it up. They are confident that the fellow had prepared his pile of dirt, as a bait. They report horrible sufferings on the Smoky Hill route, which has been so be puffod in some of tho papers. When they left, bnt ten persons had roached the mines by that route, who reported that three hundred had died on the way. One of the men reported that he had seen six dead men lying within reach of each oth er ; and another said that ho bad himsolf buried twelve men. Theso men came straggling in, one by one. One of them had lived ten days on the flesh of his dog. They reported that some had lost their way. Scouts were immediately sent out, and some of the lost ones were found within ten miles of camp, so weak, that they had to be fed with spoons. In Denver City, several months since, lots were selling as high as 8350. When the young men left, donation shares, con taining eight lots, could be bought for 85. Denver has several hundred small cabins, many of which have no roofs. They are occupied by any ono who choscs to do so. The proprietors have made a poor speculation, us there is not money enough in the country to pay house rent. Provisions wero very scarce, and bread was selling at 15 cents per pound. Tho baker was the only per son who had nny gold (last, for those who got any, wero compelled to buy bread with it. One of our informants cave the baker a gun, which cost him 82G, for fonr pounds of bread. Tbeso young men threw their tools into tho Platte, and started homo on foot, ta king only two blankets with them. For two hundred miles they lived on prickly pears and wild potatoes. They bnilt but two fires from Denver to Fort Kearney. Onco they killed a prairie dog and roastod it. Another time, they camo (o whoro a man and his family wero encamped, and asked for bread. The man at first refused it, bnt at length ogrcod to let them have some, for which he took their blankets as pay 1 They then had to sleep on the bare prairie, and once the Cheyenne Indians camo near taking thoir coats from them ! A young man named Wm. II. Joslyn, and another person, from Monroe County, Now York, have since arrived, and report similar to the above, and much more, which would be interesting, had we room for it. They spent a great part of their time in the company of old mountaineers, who assured them that gold could not be found there in paying quantities. We hear onongh every week to fill onr paper, and are enabled to give bnt a few of the prin cipal itcjns. JtW A daily line of packets has been arranged to run from Jefferson City, in connection with the Pacific Railroad, to Council Binffs and Omaha. They have some eight or ten of tho largest, finest and best boats in the river, to form this line. Among them, we notice the names of the Peerless, Ben Lewis, A. B. Cham bers, Emma, J. D. Perry, D. A. Janua ry, South-Westor. Rky-Lerk and Sioux City. Several of them have already passed op. This, we presume, is an op position line to the Hannibal and St. Joseph Railroad. For travel and trade. it will be glorious, putting down passage and freight to little or nothing ; but it mnst speedily bo death to the boats, as we do not believe they can stand it long, tW Ansel Watrons, Jr., has retired from the Holt County News, and is about starting a paper at Iowa Point, to be called tbe "Democratic Dispatch," the first number of which, we understand, is to appear this week. We wish him pe cuniary success, bnt the past an gars that he will not realize it there. Bat he knows onr opinion on the subjectlet ns see how near we have guessed at the result. JC37 In an issue several weeks since, in speaking of the Democratic Convention at Troy, we observed that the only slave holder in White Clond was a Delegate. That person has reformed ns that he is not a slave-bolder, and never has been, but holds slaves in trust for another per son, by appointment of Court We don't understand these nigger twists, any how. rST-.The Clerk of tho St. Joseph Packets, .Wm. Campbell and St Mary, have onr thanks for very late St. Jmis papers. ' ' - Tne Electiox. The election en Tnes- T.'J .1 ?i ii. .:. I , W lay, created considerable stir, and result ed as follows, for Delegates to Constitu tional Convention : s FREE STATE TICKET. V. D. Markham, 75 Albert L. Lee, 62 Robert J. Porter, 63 Eliiah Fleming. 63 Franklin Grubc. 63 DEMOCIUTIC TICKET. John W. Forman, 13 John Stairwalt, 10 Benjamin Wrigley, 13 Wm. Lewis, 13 E. M. nnbbard, 11 It will bo seen that the Free State ma jority is 50. Mr. Markham runs ahead of the ticket, from the fact that several Democrats voted for bim, and several porsons voted a ticket containing only his name. His getting so many votes ahead of tho ticket, is mainly owing to the effort made in certain localities to defeat him. because bo lives in While Cloud There were 84 voles polled here, and the Free State majority exceeds the most sancminc expectations of every one. It mnst be conceded that White Cloud has done her duty nobly. We cannot tell the result in the County, bnt hope it is all right Wo know it is, if tho other pre cincts beve done their duty as oars has. We have understood that tho Democratic candidates were promised from 25 to 30 votes hero, and that they confidently pro claimed, in other parts of the County, that White Cloud would give about a tie vote, or a small Democratic majority. If their calculations npon carrying the Conn ty are based npon such estimates, they have a poor show. The majority hero cannot be called pe culiarly a Republican success ; for it was a nnion of Free State men against Kan sas Democracy. But ono thing we wore glad to see and that was a spirit of good feeling prevailing among all parties.which made things pass off pleasantly and good hnmoredly. We havo no returns, at the present writing, from any other precinct or Coon ty. If we receive any before going to press, wo will insert tbem. - Lateb. Wo have just received the returns from Iowa Point, where the vote stands as follows : DEMOCRATIC TICKET. - J. W. Forman, 131 J. Stairwalt, 121 Benjamin-Wrigley, 118 E. M. Hubbard, 128 Wm. Lewis. 118 FRT.E STATE TICKET. A. L. Lee, 28 R. J. Tortcr, 28 F. Grnbe, 26 E. Fleming. 20 V. D. Markham, 19 Wo have not received the returns from Highland, but learn that the Free State majority is 22. If this be correct, tho Democrats will have a majority of 20 to 30 in the Township. We believe they counted npon about 75 Ajc Acknowledgment. Tho Rulo Guide thus concludes an article in relation to tho suffering condition of the returning gold-seekers : Such a rush of emigrants to that inte rior region, it might have been expected, would create a famine. Now, the Guide did its prettiest to get up the gold excitement, and induce emi grants to go the mines. From the out- set.its efforts were unceasing. Whenever a bad report was sent ont, the Guide under took to disprove it, by letters from tra ders and mountaineers upon whom it de clared it could rely ; and whenever any one came homo, pronouncing the mines a humbug, tho Guide attempted to show that he was mistaken. And yet, according to its own acknowledgment, it expected nothing else than that its efforts would aid in producing a famino ! " Atchisos" Chios. We have received the first number of a large and neat Dem ocratic paper, bearing the above name. pnblislied at Atchison, in this Territory, by G. O. Chase.

The following j-crses wero handed us by the author, who was returning from the mines. Tbo poetry is by no means of a high standard, bnt tie song is im mensely popular with the "Peakcrs."- It brings things down to the plain reality, in a style which an the -" initiated" can appreciate; and nearly every xeturning miner is singing the 1 ke s l eat Song a& they-tcrm it : IIARD TIMES AT THE PEAK.

Some of tho Republican papers are charging that the Democrats and Know Nothings of Massachusetts united, to carry tho naturalization amend ment to the Constitution of that State, ia order to cast a stigma npon the Republi can party. This thing won't do. In tho first place, tho Legislature that proposed tho amendment, was almost entirely Re publican ; and in the second placo, the Republicans have a very large- majority of votes in the State, over the Democrats and Know Nothings combined. So that the Republicans of Massachusetts, and they alone, are responsible for that act, from beginning to end. But the Repub licans of nearly every othor State protcs ted against it, and are therefore not re sponsible for what Massachusetts did. Any attempt to throw the blame upon the Democrats and Know Nothings, is simply ridicnious. ns? Cabdiso Maciuxe. In another col nran, will be found the advertisement of Samuel Watson, who is jnst completing his establishment, in Holt Connty, Mis souri, near Oregon, where he will be pre pared to execnto wool-carding and spin ning, at short notice.

Such a work ia very necessrry, and it is to be hoped the contract may be taken and speedily fulfilled. Cy Tbe Government men have made a very fine landing at the Warehouse, with a Levee as smooth and clean as can be. Thasitnation is exceedingly pleasant, and altogether, we think this landing is much more preferable than the old one above. . . I bo PsnsoNAL. Wo have recently been asked why we are so severe upon K. Id. Hubbard, of Highland, who. it is alleged. is a very clever man. Oar answer is, that we have never said aught against biro, personally. - From all we can learn. he is a clever, honest, respectable citizen. and well thought of by those who know him We have never insinuated any thing to tbe contrary. What we have said in reference to bim, has been npon political grounds ; and wo havo not men tioned his name, except in connection with politics. As regards them, we think he occupies a miserablo position, and shall continue to say so, as long as he stands where he now docs, and whenever public questions shall bring tho subject around. We have been reliably informod that J. P. Johnson, whom we havo had sev eral occasions to rub up, gavo an exhibi tion of his swoet temper, at the dinner table, in one of the Iowa Point IIotcl, last Monday, in presence of all tho board ers, ladies included.

Mr. Johnson is informed that wo have never alluded to bim, except when be meddled in public affairs ; and wo shall have nothing to sny about him, as a pri vate citizen. Hut whon ho mixes in mnt ters of a public character, we slmll title occasion to Fpeak of bim ns we think lie deserrc3, and run the iik of being "knocked all to pieces !" jt5T Virginia, it seems, has again gone Democratic, electing Letcher Governor by 2.000 or 3,000 majority.

Breckonridge's Prospects-Other Candidates. Washington, May 3. Gov. Wise's last letter is thought by the politicians here to have finixhed his Presidential prospects, if bo had nny be fore it was written. II u liter's shrewd si lence has won the day over him. Wise and Donglas have fraternized for a couple of years, but they separated on Congres sional Non-intervention. Mr. Douglas says to his friends that he will support Wise, or Hunter, or Brcckcnrigc, but not a man known as an offensivo Lccompton ite, nor a decided Interventionist. Mr. Brcckcnridgo's friends aro in high spirits, for they say that no first-class politician in the party has stood npon tlm fence so cleverly as he, on the issues which incon veniently divide North and South. The friends of Daniel S. Dickinson are busy in laying their plans for bis nomination. If a Isortliern roan is to get the nomina tion at the hands of the Charleston Con vention, who will stand a better chance than " Scripture Dick ?" lie has not been mixed np in the recent quarrels of the party, and will be acceptable to the South. Mr. Guthrie's cause is entirely in .the hands of Pclo Washington, of this city, and is a moonshine speculation. All tho varions candidates have got the idea into their heads that it is poor policy to make any noise yet, and there is complete silenco on the subject, and only an insider, who can see how tho wires are pnlled, would imagine that so mnch was doing in tbo lino of President-making. -V. Y. Evening Pott. II. Clay Tate. Well this fellow is advertised even in Tro-Slavery papers, as a swindler. He did very naughty things at Westport, and fled thereafter to the Old Dominion. But the St. Louis and St. Joseph papers say ho will be demand ed by the Governor of Missouri, and pnn ished. May be so I The St. 'Joseph Jonrnal, describing his escape, says : Upon tle boat rc.tt'lting Jefferson (Jity. Pate and his companion took tho cars for St. Loo is. When they arrived there, Pato left orders for his pony to be sent by express to Norfolk, Va., and decamped with tho negro ho had stolen, for parts unknown although it is supposed ho is making tracks for the Old Dominion. The telegraph advised the authorities of the varions towns throngh which he might pass, to arrest and deliver tho fugitive np to justice. Tho main smTcrcr in this matter, is Dr. Morris, who lias lost 6500 in money, and a property valued at 81,- 006. This fellow, Pate, is ono of the most blatant National Democratic pro tended Pro-Slavery demagogues in the whole country, bhould ho succeed in reaching Virginia, a requisition will be made npon Gov. YY ise for his delivery to tho authorities of Missouri. A letter from Washington, in the Bos ton Courier, says : The young Administration Democrats aro enthusiastically in favor of John C. Breckenridge for the next Presidency. The anti-Administration Democrats and the Americanized branch of tho Repnbli can party are zealously urging the claims of Edward Bates, of Missouri. ' Steady old Bochanan Democrats, llic old guard of the Administration, are rallying quietly, but firmly, aronnd Jos. Lane, of Oregon. J. W, Forney, of the Philadelphia Press, insists on a ticket embracing tho names of Donglas and John Hickman. Tho New Orleans Crescent of the 12th olt., says : "The ereat event of 1860 perhaps it will prove the greatest as well as the moat disastrous event of ancient or modern times the election of W.
