Daring tho two rears rast, we have had to enconntcr no racrous dilEcnltics, anl unprecedented hard times: but we hare managed to keep abovo water, while newspapers have gone under all around us. Oar business has-by no means been profitable, yet we hare lost nothing. Tho Chief is now e tablished, which is a great point attained; and our future prospects are encouraging When a papor sustains itself during two such years as we hate just passed tbrongh. while nearly every other one around it goes down, it gains tho confidence of the public, who will palronko it ia prefer ence to any other. We hope for a con tinuancc of tho patronago heretofore cr tended to us, and a largo increase from the settlers who are rapidly filling up this rortion of tho Territory. A little exer tion on the part of our friends, will bo rrcat aid to us. Oar courfic, hereafter, will bo the same as heretofore. We have endeavored to toll the (ruth in all matters of public in tercel. If we have ever failed to do so, it has not bocn intentional. In saying our say, we may often nso rough and out-of the-way language, and offend . many. But it is our way; and when we say a thing, we must say it iu our own way. Oar energies shall continue to be devoted to the interests of Whito Cloud in particular, and Northern Kansas in general. . In politics, we think our views are -pretty well understood. It has been our great desire and care, that there should not be the remotest reason for doubt as to where wo stood upon any political question, great or small. We have therefore spoken out plainly. Wc are fur Free State, all the time, but do not claim to be the organ of any party wc are confidant no one will suspect us of being an organ of the Democratic party Our riatform is tho Chief, and it is for every body that has two dollars to pay his footing 1 Not thk Clean Thiso. Tho only wonder with us now is, that tho Free State party havo not been beaten worse in this County than they are, since we have heard how Free Stato men sol themselves. To this cause may be nttri buted the meagre Free State vote at Iowa Foint. A person who has always pro fessed the strongest attachment to the cause, was supplied with an abundance of tickets. Towards evening, on dec tion day, several men from the conn' try went to town to voto. Ono of them went to the polls, and asked for a ticket. A Democratic ticket was offered him, but ho replied that ho wanted a Free State ticket. A Pro-Slavery man direc ted him to tho person in question. Tic went to him, and a&kcd for tickets. The man asked him what kind he wanted, nud he replied, genuine Free State tick ets, lie was told thoro were none there; nnd not being able to find any, .he wrote one for himself. His companions were afterwards directed to the same place, by the samo Tro-SIavcry man, and after be ing questioned, met with a like denial. They returned, and told their Pro-Slavery friend that they could find no tickets, when the latter swore he knew the fellow had plenty, for ho had seen them. Tuk- ing the persons with hiin, he entered the man's office, and without saying a word, opened a desk, disclosing a largo qnanti ty of Free State tickets I The voters de manded to know the reason why they had been refused tickets, when the fellow replied that, " to tell the truth, John W. For man was interested in Iowa Point, and ho didn't want to give tickets to any person who would vote against him !" In this manner, he had no doubt induced many Free Stato'mcn to vote tho Demo cratic ticket, or to scratch a namo nnd vote for Forman ; or, still oftcner, by re fusing men tickets, compelling them to go homo without voting. Tho vote shows what name was scratched. To help the matter along, wo are told that there were tickets headed "Frco State Democratic Ticket." The best part of it was, the fellow's dishonesty was expo sed by a Tro-Slavory Democrat. Tho above statements arc facts ; and, if necessary, we can givo tho names of all the parties concerned. Election Retitixs. Doniphan, At chison, Leavenworth, Wyandotte, John eon and Jefferson Counties have gone Democratic ita the exemption of one Free State man elected in Doniphan. Douglas has gono Republican. Brown elects S. A. Kingman, Esq., and Nema ha elects CoL Wright both Republi cans, and noilher had any opposition. From the looks of affairs, we greatly fear that tlie Democrats will have a ma jority in the Convention: but wo will hope for the best. It really seems to us, that In Counties where .there was no pros pect for Democratic majorities, tho Re publicans purposely managed to help them along, by getting up quarrels and divisions on local questions. 3T The Falls City Broad-Axo says thai Rush Island was named aftr "Rush Williams V ' Th Election. ..

One cause of the defeat was the organi- zation of tho Republican party. Wc onnoscd that movement for a Ions tirao ; but when wc saw tho thing determined upon, wo concluded that it were better to acoulcscc. for the time bein, than to aid in kecnins un division. But we arc con- fident Republicanism was not tho main cause of defeat. Wo believe Doniphan County is yet anti-Democratic, and that, with tho Republican issuo alone, tho De mocracy would have been defeated. Lo cal schemes of speculation havo decided the result. The St. Joseph and Toncka Rail Road did tho matter. Certain can didatcs were pledged to use their efforts to have that Rail Road embraced in the land grants asked for in the Constitution; and the people of tho lower part of the County wcro led to bclicvo that their salvation depended upon tho election of those candidates. Pretended Rcpnblicaus of tho most ultra 6tamp voted for the veriest Border Ruffians, upon this qucs- tion. Wc have even heard it rumored that men in whom tho party throughout the cntiro Territory reposed the fullest confidence, sold themselves, and their causo, in the hour of trial, for a little personal speculation. We hopo this is untrue. Wo havo heard of ono man, who was robbed, during tho troubles, his family driven from their home, and him- self compelled to lio hidden in tho bushes, J for weeks at a time, to escape being mur- dcrcd at tho late election he marched up and voted for men who had countenanced this treatment of himself. A Freo State man. several years ago. was shot down bv " a Pro-Slavery Ruffian. At the late clec- tion, his sons marched up and votod for men who had countenanced the murder of their father 1 When such men, and persons to whom tho party were wont to look for counsel, deserted or betrayed ..... . . . . their fneiiils, can it bo ivomlcrcd at. that the callant spirits who stood un true to the cause, were overwhelmed ? A Pro- Slavery man has told us that he witnessed so much of this grovelling and dust-lick- ing. that he becamo disgusted, and left tho polls, without voting. " At Denver, where the receipts of gold aro Tho result of tho matter is, four of the increasing, thero was no gold, and scarce five Delegates elected arc cither interested anY Pcr,on to rccci,re il- Many miners in or pledged to that Rail Road scheme. haJ Sono far 'nl tbo mountains, (where The entire portion of tho County north 81K'11 S"1 d'S;ngs havo been found,) ofTrov. gets but ono Delegate.

Mr. Lewis was nominated by the same Con vention, and stood upon the samo plat form, as the other candidates ; yet ho is sacrificed, because he lives too far up in .i .. . ... ... i no country, ana is not interested in a certain Rail Road speculation ! Wo th.uk here is every reason for the true Free State men of Doniphan County to tako courage. Men brought into fel lowship only by schemes of speculation and plunder, cannot long stick together. They will soon commence to skin each other, and then will commence a muss, and such exposures, as will open the eyes of those who havo been duped into aid ing and abetting them. Such a thing will occur in this County, and probably before next November's election then honest people can make their voices heard, and right will again triumph. ' 3TWo havo been told that, in tho lowor part of the County, at the election, for eigners and others, who had been only three months, or less, in the Territory, were permitted to vote, notwithstanding tho provisions of ttio Convention bill, and tho explicit proclamation of the Governor, to the contrary. Wo would not be at all surprised, if the truth were known, to hear that persons were allowed to vote npon a three months' residence, in a majority of the precincts in the County. That was carefully guarded against hero. : tW In Leavenworth, the Democracy gained the day by importing voters from St. Joseph, Weston, and riattc City ; by foreigners voting upon fraudulent natur alization papers; and by bringing the soldiers and Government employees from the Fort. In Atchison, they got np a row to help then ont of the drag. 4 37The Leavenworth Ledger has ap peared in a new dress and an enlarged form.

It seems to us passing strange, that tho notion seems to bo so wide-spread, that nothing can prosper unless it has the word "Democrat" stuck to it. If a party de sires to make a lucky strike, it must adopt tho namo of Democrat such as Free Democrats. Reform Democrats, Free Stato Democrats or any other namo, so that has Democrat tied to it. So with newspapers, when they aim to acqniro influence and popularity. As long as we havo this superstitions pandering to the namo Democrat, by those who aim to correct the evils of tho Democratic party. so long will that corrupt organization prosper. Democracy, in its truo sense. 8 good enough ; but modern Democracy s no Democracy at all. Men must firet bo weaned from tho word Democrat, or they will irresistibly 6lido into tho rotten Democratic party. It is a poor way to commence a reform, by adopting tho very namo of the evil yon wish to eradicate, If yon desire to overthrow Democracy, you must not call yourselves Democrats.

This is but a chorus to tho tuno that has been sung for tho lost six months, and everybody is expected to join in tho yell. All who dance to that tnnc, at this late day, deserve to be humbugged. LoiBEn. The lurabtr trads is carried on largely here, and wo think we may safely say that White Cloud docs a hea vier lumber business than any other place in Kansas. The roads leading to the back country are almost constantly lined with teams loaded, with lumber. The two saw mills here are kept running early and late, and tarn out a vast amount of lumber daily; and besides these, there are two mills on Rush Island, three miles below here, which are kept busy. The amount of lumber sold into the bock conntry, speaks well for the substantial improvements going on out there. " A Miss Carztang, in St. Louis, lately sued a wealthy bid cod, named Shaw, for a breach of promise, which occupied the Court for a number of day, and the jury awarded 8100,000 damages.

Horace Greeley has said many truo things hot none truer than that con tained in a recent loiter from thia Territory that the two great corses of Kansas, are land speculators and one-uorse pouuewu.. We do not believe that nature ever spewea out a more contemptible set of politicians than Kansas and Nebraska contain. Une horse is too dignified a term for them They have not sufficient calibre, to make respectable demagogues, l ncy uc .ou6 "ml I T ago made our Territory a langhing-stoct. When one set of men make a botch of matters generally, they are kicked out of office by others, who mako fctill more miserable blunders. We do not see bow it can be possible for any one party to hold sway more than a year at a timo ; for each docs such outlandish work, that the people are anxious to pull them down and set un tho other, who in turn must go down again and so on, "world with out end." These politicians arc so con fident of their own superior abilities, that, even if they do not, by their acts, run their party into disgrace, they are so anxious for offices, tho duties of which they arc not compctont to fulfill, that they defeat their party by quarrelling among themselves, Speculation, if anything, is more barn ful than tho politicians. Men will sacri Gee principles which they have for years professed to clicrish, because a candidate of tho opposite party lives in a town in which thry own a corner lot. This thin has been pluinly exemplified in the lal election for Constitutional Delegates. We know of men who have heretofore been radical Free Stato men, unceasing in their denunciations of Pro-Slavery kni now at a time when the f;ito of Kunsiis is probably to Iks decided forever, we find them marching up to the polls, and not only voting themselves, but influencing every other Fico State man that they could, to vote for Tro-Slavcry men, and Border Ruffians of tho deepest dyo and for what ? Because, forsooth, these Pro Slavery cndiditte wcro in favor of a Knilrond or a !ounty line in which these Free State men wcro interested ! To this depth ha. speculation reached in Kansas. Similar motives induced Judas to betray Christ ! Dead Body. Somo men on the river in skiffs, at this place, on Monday morn ing, discovered a floating body, which they approached, and found it to be that of a good-sized man, entirely naked. They attempted to tow it to shore, but the flesh fell off, and smelt so bad, that they let it float on down. It lay with the faco downward, and tho back out of the water. The body was much swollen, the hair dark, and cut short ; and, as near as the persons could judge, in tho condition in which tho body was, tho person was in the neighborhood of thirty years of age. Tho back was much sun-burnt, which would indicate that tho body had lain exposed for some time probably among drift-wood, as the river rose somewhat on Monday morning, and a qnantity of drift camo down. From the absenco of clothing, it is judged that tho person must havo been drowned whilo in tho act of bathing probably far np in some one of the numerous streams that empty into the Missouri. jrtrliotLia aro now so numcrons in theso upper waters, that one may be seen at almost any time. About all tho boats in tho Missouri aro now running in the upper river trado, and many of them come with scarcely a passenger or a pound of freight. Thoro is about one passenger to ovcry three boats, which causes a great deal of racing to dctermino which boat shall get him. We believe there are now . 4 ta sixteen nno uoais forming a daily line botween St. Louis and Omaha, besides the independent boats in the trado. We on dcrstand that they aro running in oppo sition to tho Hannibal and St. Joseph Railroad. Wo wish there wcro enough business to justify them all ; but thero is not, and they aro engaged in a profitless undertaking, which they must soon tire of and abandon. t3T Every friend of this section of Kansas will be gratified to learn that the land, foe a few miles back of tho river, is rapidly settling np with persons who intend to open farms. Those who cannot find land to enter, buy of those who have pre-empted, and aro willing to sell. A number of purchases have been made in the neighborhood of Sabclha and PaJo nia, within a short timo past ; and scarce ly a day passes, but persons pass through here, with their families, bound for that section. Already many exceedingly fine farms aro opened out there. This is as it should be. Tbo Territory never can be prosperous, until tho land is occupied and cultivated. Istebxstixo Stout.

The Democracy of Iowa Point had a sort of jollification, on Wednesday evening of last week, upon hearing the result in this County. Fla ming speeches were made, and tar-barrels were burned. One prominent citizen, who has been voting the Democratic ticket ever since he came to Kansas, and has been a candidate for office upon that ticket, declared that he was not a Demo crat, and never had been. He contended that he had not voted the Democratic ticket at tho late election, for four of the candidates were Old-Lino Whigs, and only one a Democrat; and he had scratch ed that one off of the ticket, and voted for tho four Whigs ! A funny way to get out of a thing as original a mode as another person adopts, to keep from voting tho Democratic ticket. Ho cnts off the head, "Democratic Ticket," and votes for tho candidates on tho ticket ; therefore, he argues, he has not voted the Democratic Ticket ! Another orator, in the course of his remarks, declared that the Democratic party was the truo Abolition party 1 This stirred up one of tho old stand-bys, who got up and told him he had better stop that he had not been in Kansas long enough to learn what Democracy was ! The fdlow probably meant to say that tho Democratic party was the true Free State party ; but having been so accus tomed, under tho old programme, to hear the Free Stale people stigmatized as Abo litionists, ho was not sufficiently versed in political lore to discriminate between the two terms. Other speakers spouted, and at a late hour the crowd dispersed, fully impressed with tho important fact, that Democracy is a great institution. T Peterson's Magazine, for July, is already at hand. It is illni-tratcd with " Grand mother's Darling." a Colored Fashion Plato, and a great variety of j Pattcrns.

Tho steamship Liverpool which left Liverpool on the zoth nit., and bound for New York, lias been intercepted off this port by tho new yacht of the Associated Press. The news is of great importance and announces tho first important blow in Italy. The Allies aud Austrian forces have met, and tho latter been defeated. ine name tooK piaco at Montibclio, a town in Austrian Italy. Tho Austrian were 15,000 strong and made the attack, and after a severe engagement, were ob liged to retreat. Tho Allied Army lost 700, while tho Austrian loss is estimated at 2,000. A nnmber of Austrians were captured and taken prisoners to Mar seilles. The battle of Montibello took place on the 21st May. The Austrians, who were commanded by Gen. Stadion, attacked tho posts of Gen. Baraguay D'Uillicrs. They were driven back by Gen. Forey's division after a furious com bat, which lasted four hours. The Allies carried Montibclio, but did not pursue the Austrians. Two hundred prisoners, including a colonel, were taken to Mar seilles. Austrian account of tho battlo differs widely from the above. The actual force of tho French ia not stated, but it is re ported that it numbered 6,000 men, be sides a regiment of Sardinian cavalry. A bulletin, issued by tho Sardinian Gov ernment, announces that the extreme left of tho Sardinian army under General Baldini, had forced their passage across the river Sesia, putting the Austrians to flight. Gen. Garibaldi hail entered Pavia with 6,000 men, for a revolutionary pur pose. It was rumored that six English men-of-war had entered the Adriatic Sea.

Mr. EDiToa: I was at an election, tho other day, and witnessed what I nev er expected to see, via : Freo State men (who bled at every pore three long ye for Kansas in fact, kept Sharpe'a rifles and other anna about their premises, to kill the "Slavery dictators," as they called them.) using all moana to get their brethren to vote for "Slaveryites," to an extent that will be ascertained at the can cellation of the poll-books.

Long you fought. and hept yonr flag from trailing in the dust, and won a reputation that was call ing forth tho admiration of even your foes ; but your cowardly desertion draws from them their disgust nnd hatred, and they look upon you as traitors and turn coats ever are, with suspicion, ridicule, and derision. Could yon have persuaded them to leave their ranks ? No. You might as well call npon the sea to give up its dead, as to ak a Southern man to go Freo State. But ye patriots of "shirt tail" battle notoriety, will ground your arms without even an asking, and heap vituperation upon your old companions, whoso heads have grown white in fight ing the battles of justice, and who never suffered their beloved banner to trail in tho dust, nntil ye " Arnolds" sold them to the enemy ; and they were stabbed by yoa in the back, fighting for Liberty !
