SOL. MILLEIt, ----- EDITOR. WHITE CLOUD, ZAKSAS: tharsday, : r : : : July 7, 1859. Cus on Foreigners. Much Las been said, of late years, con cerning war upon foreigners ; but a doc ument bas recently been issued by Uen Cass, as Secretary of State, wbich may well alarm foreigners for tbeir rights not concerning any certain period during which they should not be allowed tbe privileges of citizens of tbe United States, but involving their'rights even after tbey litre resided in America far beyond tbe longest period tbat tbe most prescriptive demand tbey shall remain before beiDg admitted to citizenship after tbey have assumed those rights, and have been hon ored with places of public trust by the people of the United States. Since the breaking out of the war in Europe, the question has arisen, as to whether, in case a naturalized citizen of the United States should visit Europe, bis native country could claim his servi ces in the army. The matter was refer red to Secretary Cass, and he, reflecting tbe opinions of the Administration, has ieciaea mat, sucn citizens owea ecr- ... . t I I vice in Europe, prior to coming here, those countries are entitled to the full ; term of their service, in case they visit their native land; no matter if they have j cording to onr laws, Thus : In France and the Qorman States, there is a system -of conscription, under which all subjects must serve a given number of years in the army. Therefore, if a person left before so serving, (or, as many do, fled from service,) it may have been even a quarter of a century ago, and now has occasion to visit Europe, ho is liable to bo com pelled to serve out bis full term in the army, and the United States will afford 'him no protection, notwithstanding he has enjoyed tho rights of citizenship for twenty years. Of what utility are our naturalization laws, if they afford no protection to those for whose benefit they were established ? What becomes of the boast that America is an asylum for tho oppressed of the whole world ? Those who camo to that asylum, and are so unfortunate as to be canght in Europe at this time, arc told, when they appeal to onr Government for protection : " You never served out your ti-ao ia the army you must now remain there five or seven years, at the bidding ef tyrants, and march fonh to oppress your countrymen, and prevent them from throwing off the chains of bondage !" And if ocr Government allows this, will it not also allow the European nations to hang or shoot such naturalized citizens as rebelled against them, or deserted their armies? If so, woe to the German Put riots of 1848, and previous to that time, . who fled to this home of the free, after their unsuccessful effort to free their Fa therland ! If any of them are found in Europe, they may bo shot down as trai tors or deserters, and our Government will call it right. And having yielded o this, may we not look next for our Government to consent to deliver op all fugitives from foreign oppression, who are now enjoying the privileges of Ame rican citizens, wherever they may be found, that they may bo carried back, and dealt with as traitors and deserters ? And since the example has been set, may we 0t expect England, w hen she again engages in war, to demand tho services of citizens of the United States, who are .natives of the British Empire ? Who is it that is thus surrendering the viguis oi our aaopteu citizens 7 it it the Know-Nothing party, which, we have so often heard it said, is founded upon pro scription of foreigners ? No ; it is the great Democratic Administration the Administration ef that party which, we have been so repeatedly told, ia eloquent terms, is composed of the true friends of the foreigner. Were the rights of tho naturalized citizen so ignominiously sur rendered by President Fillmore, that tnuch abused Know-Nothing ? Fortun ate would it be for the adopted citizen, were Fillmore now in the Presidential bair. Well would it be, were Daniel . Webster, instead of Gen. Cass, in the office of -Secretary of State, to send the Hulsemanns howling back to their mas ters, and teach Austria that the United States are determined to protect the rights of their citizens. Did James Madison desert the naturalised citizen, when Eng land claimed his services, and impressed him into her army and navy ? The his tory of the war of 1812, is an emphatic and impressive answer in the negative But James Bnchanan was a bitter oppo nent of that war, and of the Administra tion of James Madison; is it not, then, reasonable to expect that, ia similar ca ses, he will adopt, a policy opposite to that pursued by President Madison ? Principles which were established by the war of 18 12, are now yielded and thrown open for dispute, by the Admiaistration of James Buchanan. Let the Democratic papers now cease their . howling over the Massachusetts amendment, which only involves a peri od of probation of two years longer than at present, before a foreigner shall be ad mitted to the rights of citizenship ; but Jet them bowl awhile about a Democratic Administration giving tip adopted citi- zcus of thirty years' Btanding, to tbe ty rants of Enrope, to be used as targets, in the attempt to keep tbe world in boud- agc! We confess to a certain amount of Know-Nothingism ; but we have not dipped into it so deeply as to approve of tho decision of Secretary Cass. We wonld not thus surrender to a European tyrant the rights of an adopted citizen, if that citizen had deserted from the army of that tyrant, and had shot down a do zen sentries and guards, in making bis escape ! Docclas at a Discolst. Tbe Leav- enworth Journal, tbe Douglas organ of j Kansas, is dead. So fado tbe Little G i ant's hopes in this Territory. The party here have swallowed the unadulterated! Buchanan Democracy, and have no far- j thcr use for a Douglas organ. Douglas' j course upon Lccompton, rendered him J popular, and immediately a party was formed here, into which were inveigled many soft-shell Freo State men. - 'The getters up of tho movement, well knew that if they could induce men. to call j themselves Douglas Democrats, but w;thwhat, reader, do you think whether or not free negroes should be al sbort step would land them npon the Bu- j with articles a column and a half in lowed to settle here, it wonld be carried chanan side of the fence.

While Very good, ch !

We still think that the Ledger put in . some "good licks" for tho Free Stato the Republican party of Kansas are re cause ; but wo aro no apologist for its j sponsible for the misfortunes of tho set editor's subsequent course. What tho ; tiers ! Yes, the President has ordered Herald has quoted from tho Chief, was . not in reference to Mc.'s boyish excuses since the election. The Free State party was beaten in Leavenworth, and the Led ger wants to back out. Had the result been different, this would not be. Quf.eb. There is ono queer peculiarity in the streams of Southern Kansas. The waters seem to be always on a " bish." Thore has not been an election within two I years past, but what the papers down j tho ,amls shouItl remain optn to tho pre there, immediately afterwards, mado ex- j emptor for at least fifteen years after their cuses for tho meagre vote, by saying the waters were high, and the roads bad, and people could not get to the polls. It bc gius to look, "to a man up a tree," as if there wero in reality not so many voters down there as has been represented, in the clamor about disfranchised Counties and unfair apportionments. We move that a time be set for tho next election, when the waters do not intend to rise. jC3T Several of our subscribers have lately remonstrated with us against spea king ota Democratic party in this Ter ritory. They contend that it is nothing but the old Pro-Slavery party, and should be so callod. We agree with them ; but if they will examine a little into the merits of the case, they will as certain that the Democratic party is a Pro-Slavery party, and that modern De mocraey and Slavery mean tho same thing. Therefore, we do not think it makes any difference which name we ap ply to them. A JtST The first number of tho Elwood Free Tress has been received. It is a large and well gotten np sheet, and is conducted with much spirit. Editorial ly, it has a strong team, in the persons of Messrs. Lee fc Wilder.

We hope for it better suc cess than its predecessors met with. Trice, S2 a year. A Good Word. We aro always gra tified to receive a good " lift" from our brethren of tho press, particularly such as the following, from tho Dayton (0.)

It is well known to onr readers, tbat we have ever stood op for the above sheet, while it was being attacked in every di rection. While others were charging it with selling itself, we expressed our con fidence in its integrity. But it is with sorrow that we now ssy that late events have wofully shaken our faith in it. During the late canvass, when every true Frco State man should have been ; working for tho cause, the Herald stood .1nof: or. when it did seem to take any interest in the fizht. it was to countenance ROmfl movement wbich had bccB ttfin t0 j;str,ct the Free State ! ranks,, by the nomination of Democrats, under the name of Free State men, in j ftnnn.:iioa to tho Republicans. And the' 0lj apparent reason for all this wa. be-j can(je the TpUDiican party was organized conirarv to tho wishes of tho Herald, al- thonch -lts editor has always professed to belong to that party. , While the contest was going on, tho Herald, instead of containing matter fa- voraUia to the Free State cause, was filled j jcn,rtht endeavoring to refute tcne charges I an j yw wheu Buchanan found no other ... ... 1 anoi0,,st m Kansas when his own party plalform fa;IcJ to endorse him openly,' I nJ wlicn L;8 ,cU wcr0 ; orcj in tll' contest, the Herald of Freedom, a pro- ,oweJ fiec ,;, th(, M rn!li ca,j;ngr , ! fessed Free State paper, undertook his de- j k is weH it on direct route ' fence, and especially the defenco of an.from Leavenworth to Fort Kearnev. and j act which every well-wisher of Kansas j heartily condemns, and which his own parlv piatform begged of him to recon- sidcr. It was the ordering of tho Kansas land sales, lho llcraM ot reedom comes out pompously, ana itcciarcs that the j not he Jown jik(, ,i0?Sf for rgmon pcople of Kansas havo bad ample timoj Ktrati ;nflt exorbitant charges, as to enter their lands ; that the President has already twice postponed the sale?, for their bcncGt ; that tho crops last year were good, and if the people had spent j more time in work, and less in specula ting, they would now be in easy cirenra stances ; and concludes by charging that two postponements of six whole months each, and the Herald praises it as a noble act ! In reality, those short postpone ments only rendered the condition of the settlers worse, by compelling them to place themselves at tho mercy of usurers and (-peculators. But wo presume the Republican party of Kansas are responsi ble for the violation of Bncbanan's pledge, "pressed in his Inaugural Address, that survey ! A Cnancial depression has pros trated the energies of the country, for two years past ; last year, the rust blighted a large portion of tho Kansas wheat crop ; and this season, several plantings of corn have been swept from the ground by heavy rains. For all this, the Republican party of Kansas are responsible, and President Buchanan docs a wise and hu mane act; in forcing tho land of tho set tlers to a public sale ! If the President, at this late day, should open bis heart, and again postpone the sales, we presume that tho Herald wonld denounce the act, as an encouragement of laziness and spec ulation, tinthankfulncs8 for the bounties of nature, and encouragement of the Re publican party of Kansas I Since the election, the Herald has been busy in endeavoring to figure up a Dem ocratic triumph. Its hopes are based upon the election of several persons who, it claims, are not Republicans, but straight Free State men. If its influence and blandishments have any weight with these men, they will work to the hands of the Democratic party. The Herald is like wise vociferous in its declarations, that if the two Democratic Delegates from Wy andotto County are not admitted to seats in tho Convention, contrary to the pro visions of tho act providing for the Con vention, and if, npon investigation, fraud ulently elected Democrats are denied their scats, such outrages will give the Territory to the Democrats by an over whelming majority ! Such is the course of tho Herald of Freedom, in proof of which, we refer to its columns. If its energies arc not de voted to aiding the Democracy, we are ignorant of the term. The editor of the Herald is one of those who take greater delight in exclaiming, " I knew it !" or "I told yon so 1" than in recording the triumph of right, if the triumph be achieved by other means than those he proposed. 4 More Coes.

Kossuth, the Hungarian "gas pipe," is in England, advising tho Brit ih nation what cwurso to pursue in the present war. He did tho samo thing in this country, during the Hungarian Rev olution, and abused some of the best men in tho land, because they had the temeri ty to differ with him as to the true policy to be pursued by the United States.

The Linn Herald says : We ate not disposed to glory over our success in this County, but we have this much to say that the Democrats have but little ground for tho soles of their feet in Southern Kansas. It is intimated, in the Herald of Freedom, that the dele gates from Bourbon are Free State, and will hold the balance of power in the Convention. As to that we do not know; it is generally conceded here that the del egates from that County are true Repub licans, and cannot be inveigled into the support of sham-Democracy.

Four Democrat and one Republican were elected to represent this County in tho Constitutional Convention. Mr. John Stairwalt, of Palermo, is a Democrat of tho Old School, au I avow edly a Pro Slavery man. Ho is an ol.l settler in Kansas, and enjoys the. etecm of a wide circle of friends belonging to both parties. Ho is not a politici in, is a man of business, cuergy an I talent, and "all right but hi politics." Mr. John W. Forman. of Doniphan, is well known as a Pro-Slavery Democrat was selected for his personal populari ty, and elected ou a local question. He is also a business man, and not a politi cian. I Mr. E. M. Hubbard, of Hi-bland, is said to belong to that wing of the party Curiously named Free State Democrat ic. Of his qualifications wo know noth ing personally, ho bears the reputation of being a very fine man. Benjamin Wrigley, of Troy, is a law yer and a man of average ability. He is, we believe, the only politician in the delegation. In 1S56 he was a Republi can, and until last Fall, co-operated with the Freo State party of Kansas, when he ran on tho Democratic ticket for Repre sentative, and was defeated. He a!o claims the adulterated title of Free State Democrat. Mr. R. J. Torter is a Republican of unwavering principles, was elected last Fall Treasurer of Doniphan County He has ever proven faithful to the Free State cause, ami is worthy of the confidence of the party that elected him. Politically, with the exception of Mr. Torter, trie delegation is very bad, but otherwise, we urge no objection to it. Pulermo Lea der. . Clay Tate is Wesitort Osce Mode. The Westport correspondent ot the St. Louis fie pnblican writes under the date of June 13 : Capt. Tate and his negro man Austin, (about whom the newspapers have had much to say recently,) arrived here Sat urday. Dr. Morris immediately got out a writ for the possession of the boy ; the officer got him out of Tate's possession and handed him over to Morris, who in a few minutes passed him over to a negro trader. Tate then sued out some other sort of writ or attachment for the posses sion of the boy, giviug good bonds for the value of the slave, in case Morris should prove a title to him whereupon the trader gave back the boy to the offi cer, and so the poor darkey has been passed from hand to hand as a sort ol circulating medium, and with tha celeri ty and slickness of the little joker iu the classic amusement of thimblerig. For twenty-four hours the game was brisk and entertaining; sometimes the negro was Tate's, and sometimes he was Mor ris'; it was "now you see him, and now you don't," until yonr correspondent bo came confused and bewildered, and cave up all hope of ayertaining head or tail of tbe complicated affair, during the time that the legal transactions were progress ing, Capt. T. and Dr. M. met at the Ex change Hotel in Kansas City, and sharp words and prompt drawing of weapons took place, but bystanders interfered, and a desperate conflict (for they are both gentlemen of determination,) was preven ted, or at least postponed. Joha Underwood, a magistrate of Triiico William County, Virginia, was indicted some months ago for venturing to speak too freely on the subject of sla verr.
