WHITE" CLOUD, KASSAS: Tktrsiij, t.: : : Atjwt M, 1855. : Railkoads- Tb subject of Railroads it now beginning to gitt the mind of tbe people U iiU'portion of the Union In LMttnVqtOi, they have voted loan of 8106,4t!i?d.VrJ in the construction of a rod vir.tbe direction of Fort Riley. Tbey are hard afwork, cither in earnest or making believe, building a road from Elwood to Marysville. In Ft. Joesph, nothing talked, thongbt or dreamed of, bat Re'doad? The feTer in spreading in tbia upper country. The Platte country Railroad if tb:be poshed ahead, and there is great strife jbet ween'the friend of the river and inland route. - Certain capitalists in Ft. Joseph are utterlyopposed to t!.e river route, being fearful lest a road along the rirer might baud tip a town above bt Joseph, to compete with' her" for the trade J of tbe npp&coontrjv They seem to think that Railroads in the West are only to be built for the ' advantage of St. Joseph ; and that it is a great outrage, if ererj road, ao 4na tier whether it starts in Min soori, Kansas, or Nebraska, does not hare a terminus in St.- Joseph. This matter had Letter be generally understood, so that whenever a Railroad is projected, calculations' can be made as to the easiest and cheapest way to get it to St. Joseph. Tbe selection of the route of the Platte Country Railroad, we understand, will depend upon the amount of subscriptions. That route raising the largest subscrip tion, will get tlie road. In view of this, the people of the river route have gone to work; determined to secure the road. There is to be a mass meeting at Forest City, oo Friday, the 26th inst., to take tbe question into consideration. The people . of Holt Connty, and of the river towns of Kansas and Nebraska, are invited to attend A delegation and speakers from St. Joseph are expected. ' Let the citizens of White Cloud turn out. The road will be important to them. If located on the river route, it will pass near here, and place os within a few hours' travel of the East, besides giving ns all the advantages of a railroad town. There are other im portant considerations, - which we shall name hereafter. Towns and cities every where are moving to secure railroad facil ities ; and White Cloud should look to her interests, or she will be left in the drag. ' Horrible ! We have found two more holes in the Constitution, large enough for a full-grown he nigger to creep in. with Ins boots on ! 1 bat is a monstrous document, and the world will he ruined if it is adopted. The Article on Public Institutions pro vides for a Penitentiary ; but it contain not a word to prevent niggers from being placed in that institution. Just think of it! these Republicans want to compel white people and niggers to stay in the Penitentiary together! Lands are asked for, to aid in the Con struction oT Railroads ; but in keeping with their well-known preference for nig gers over white men, the Republicans have inserted nothing to prohibit niggers from acting' as brakemen on the cars, after the roads are built ! It is terrible to think of it. Just imagine, when these Railroads are'built, how it will look to see a nigger brakeman on the platform of each car yea,-and probably nigger engineers and conductors, who may at any time switch the train off on to an Underground Rail road, and take the whole cargo, white people and all, to Canada, Hayti, South Carolina, or some other despicable hole ! f i. 1 ' tST The trains which left this place, for Forts Laramie and Kearney, have re turned to Nebraska City. We have beard the question asked : As there is a large quantity of freight still here, to be shipped West, and as the route to this place is equally as short and good as to Nebraska City, why are the White Cloud trains taken to that place ? We have heard it intimated, that the teamsters are taken there and paid off, that they may make such purchases as they stand in need of, and thereby help the trade of Nebraska City. Not knowing anything about it ourself, we express no supposition in the ease; bnt if such surmises as the above be true, is not tlie freighting business help ing White Cloud "with a screw to it," when even tbe teamsters are driven into Nebraska City to spend their money, and afterwards shipped to White Clond as deck passengers on steamboats ? BaWThe Falls City Broad-Axe has gotten at loggerheads with Dr. Dunn, in - regard to a toast it published ; and the narqe of tlie Chief figures in tbe snarl. We published and made some comments upon a toast, a short time since, but the name of Dr. Dunn was not appended to it, in onr columns; nor has his name ever -appeared in our paper, to oar knowledge, . except in this article furthermore, we are not particular whether it ever does again or not . .. The-Mas. Tbe Democracy of this Territory have nominated Sanders W. Johnston, (sometimes called Judge.) of Leavenworth, for Delegate to Congress. Sanders " W. Johnston, then, is the man who will have the exquisite pleasure of.' t.: .t: i . n .. -.ng M..uuca auve oy raiTOtt, in Ho- j Supposing a Case. Supposing that a Democratic Presi dent and a Democratic Senate see, next Winter, that it will be to the intere.t of their party to admit Kansas as a State we do not mean to suppose that they will have any desire to do justice to the peo ple of Kansas ; but they tnsy see that it will be fatal to the Democratic party if they reject ber, and may admit her on that score supposing then, we ssy, that they admit her, for tbe sake of party, and she takes ber place as a sovereign and independent State : won't those Demo cratic Delegates who refused to sign the Constitution, fell rsther flat? There will be a State, with a Constitution accepted by Congress, and the names of its framers will be found attached ; but alas 1 where will be the names of those patriotic Dem ocrats? Thare will be the names of Wincbell, Thacher, itingman. Ilouston, May, Ritchie, McCnllough, and many others; bnt where will be the nsme of Wrigley, of Stinson. of McDowell, of Slough, of Forman? (God save the King!) Echo answers, "Where?" Sometimes these worthies will have oc casion to refer to the Constitution, to solve a knotty point, ( perhaps in refer ence to niggers,) and their eyes will fall npon the names of its framers ; but they will find no Wrigley, no Stinson, no McDowell, no Slough, no Forman there. In long after years, when many of the Delegates have passed away, the papers will name the few surviving framers of the first Constitution of Kansas. Most of the Democratic Delegates may still be living they will read the name of the survivors; and each one will think: "I was there, and was a member of the Con vention, yet my name is not mentioned here!" lie will likewise know tcyhis name is not mentioned ; but be will ssy nothing about it it will make him feel bad ! It would not be surprising, in af ter years, to see these fellows have the impudence to come out and acknowledge that they slunk away from the Conven tion, just for the sake of getting people to recognize them as members of the Con vention that framed the first Constitution of Kansas. The document may occasion ally be pnblished in the papers, as the Declaration of Independence now is. In looking over the names of the signers, as published in the Democratic papers, the reader will be somewhat amused, as well as startled, to see the names of the seven teen bolters there enrolled ! We would suggest to said bolters, that they employ the Democratic presses to print a few ex tra copies of their papers containing tbe Constitution, with the names of the bolt ers added to the list of signers, for their own private nse, to be prepsred for future contingencies ! But hold ! their names will be handed down to posterity, nevertheless! Will not the official Journal of the Convention be published, and filed away in the ar chives of the State, and in the library of the politician? There the names of those Democrats will stare the reader in the face from every page. There the future seeker after knowledge will read that Mr. Wrigley offered an amendment, prohibit ing niggers from stinking when they sweat; that Mr. McDowell offered a substitute, providing for the curtailment of niggers' shins, and complained that some one had stated h's age to be 81 years ; that Mr. Stinson offered a section to distinguish niggers from white people; that Mr. Slough submitted a Resolution, limiting the number of kinks in niggers' wool ; that Mr. Forman voted against making Kansas a Free State ; that Mr' Ilabbard read a protest, insisting that somebody wanted to buy him ; that Messrs. Perry, Parks, Brown, Stiarwalt, McClellan, Moore, Barton, et cetera, offered some wise provision, the object of which was to prevent white people from being utter ly ruined by niggers ; that the entire Af rican tquad offered to sell themselves, but could not find purchasers ; and that the whole " kit and tolick" of the unterri fied" attempted to bully the Convention, but were met more than half way, and made to cower down, and almost shske tlieir boots off with terror ! Yes, if their names do not appear appended to the Constitution, the records of the Conven tion cannot be destroyed ! Is not their record a bright one? Aye, aye and their names will yet be handed down to posterity! So is the name of J. Iscariot, Esquire I But here comes in another supposition suppose Congress should admit Kansas upon one condition a la mode English Bill. Wouldn't it look funny, to see the Constitution sent back to Kansas, with a proposition to admit her, npon condition that a majority of tbe people voted in favor of allowing the Democratic bolters to append their names to the Constitu tion? If Congress should do such a thing, just as like as not the people would vote it down ! Hard-liearted people ! ; tW We this week conclude the publi cation of the "Butcher of Notre Dame;" and the day on which we print this paper. (Wednesday, 24th.) i the anniversary of the Massacre of St Bartholomew. It was on the 24th of August. 1572 just 287 years ago. The New York Tribune is pub lishing lengthy, dull, and tiresome com munications concerning the India rubber controversy. By the way they are stretch- ed out the controversy must be of tbe .. . .. ... wme material as the article which oeca-lJ 'Bionean. Tn-5 School Abticle. Tbe Democra cy are still troubled about the School Ar ticle in the Constitution, and the prospect of little niggers going to the same school with white children. In fact, it tronblea them so, that some of them have begun to cry about it 1 Now, we find that tbe Constitution says nothing about children, either white or black, attending school Children are only mentioned once in the Article, and that is - where it says lb school fund shall be disbursed annually in proportion to the number of children and youth residing in each district. Yet a pack of ignoramuses are bowling about niggers and white cbilJren going to tbe same school, when the fact is. most' of them have not seen the Constitution, and do not know whether it contains a School Article. Can't they now get np another bobby that the Constitution don't allow children to go to school at all ? The Constitution, as we have shown, makes no definite school regulations, but only provides for a school fund. The Bill of Rights says that all powers not delegated in the Constitution, remain with the people. The people speak throngh the Representatives it is clear, therefore, that the people, through their Legislators, have the right to enact laws regulating schools. All they have to do, is to pass a school law, prohibiting whites and blacks from attending the ssme school. If the people want such a law, they can pass it ; and if they do not, they cannot be compelled to enact it so there is no nse in howling so about it. ,I Distress. We have seen a copy ofi a circular and lithographed letter recently sent to Postmasters throughout the Union, signed by Thomas B. Florence. They are accompanied by a prospectus of a Democratic Review, to be published at Washington. In the letter, it is stated that snch a work is badlynceded by the Democratic party at present ; and Post masters arc virtually commanded to sub scribe themselves, and are entreated to send the names of all their friends whom they csn-induce to subscribe. To make the thing take, it is announced that a Portrait of President Buchanan will ap pear in the Magazine ! The short of the matter is, that Tom feels it is his bones that he will be ousted from his seat in Congress ; and the President, having no fat office for him, has set him to black mailing the poor Postmasters with his Review arrangement. We have no doubt that the Democratic party needs all the assistance it can get, and that Tom Flor ence is extremely anxious to "raise the wind ;" hut of a majority of the Post masters, he will receive poor encourage ment. All the subscriptions he gets of many ot them, he can "poke into bis eye. '-'Co-mto to the Rescue. That over grown lubber, the St. Louis Republican, among others, comes to the rescue of its Africsn brethren in Kansas, in rnanufac tnring prejudice against the Constitution.' In sn article in reference to free negroes in the South, doubtless introduced on pur pose, the Kepublicsn takes occasion to state that Arkansas has passed a law dri ving free negroes ont of the State, and thit they are making arrangements to go to Kansas. That would be a right good hobby, were it not for the unpleasant fact, that Arkansas has passed no snch law. But the Republican, like all other papers of its politics, docs not hesitate to retail the dirtiest kind of lies, to promote par tisan ends. It is a little singular, that niggers have for years been allowed full civil rights in some of the States, and there is yet room in them for white people ; but if the peo ple of Kansas adopt a Free State Consti tution, all the niggers in the land are forthwith going to swarm npon her soil. ' tW It is said that Judge Pettit has determined to make Kansas his perma nent home ; and we have likewise heard it rumored that Gov. Medary will settle down here. Politics aside, we think such men are the kind to drive Kansas ahead. Men of influence, like them, will add spirit to the community, and be instru mental in developing the resource, and building up the manufactures and public institutions of Kansas. . tW We acknowledge the receipt (from J. H. R. Cundiff, Secretary,) of a Card to the North-West District Fair, to be holdcn at St Joseph, from the 20th to the 26th of September. If time per mitted, we should like to visit the flour ishing city of St Joseph, at that time, and take a look at the products, the stock and the manufactures of the fertile and wealthy Platte Purchase. tW Tbe gallant steamer Omaha arri ved np, last week, and will be down this week. Her Clerk bas our thanks for late papers.

XT' Land owners in Brown County, are referred to the Delinquent Tax Roll of said County, published in another col umn. All lands specified will be sold at the time stated, if the taxes are not paid by that time. : , ' tW See the notice of B. F. Ruffner & Co. They have closed out their estab lishment, and want; all their account squared np without delay. W Next week we shall lay the new Constitution before our readers. Put oh Yoirm 8nci.-If r youthful friend or the Dispatch wfll look a litue closer, be will discover thai be is "slight nally" mistaken in the matter of our op posing tbe Constitution one week, and backing down the next. We denounced the apportionment, but no other part of the instrument We still denounce that part of it ; but we have never expressed nor intimated a design to oppose the Con stitution on thai ground in fact, we consider it a minor objection, when the importance of the entire document i ta- ben into consideration. Some parts of it, we think, might be bettered ; but it does not necessarily follow that we should oppose the entire thing, because it con tains a few sections which we would like to see altered. Not having changed onr tone, of course the Dispatch's insinuation that the Leavenworth Time or some oth er paper influenced such change, amount to nothing. We would likewise correct said youth ful fi ieud npon another point We nev er entertained a desire to see him boozy on the coutrary, would be sorry to see him make ucb an exhibition of himself. We wonld earnestly entreat of him to ive over the notion that he must "get on a high" whenever a friend pays him a visit. Now, send along last week's Dispatch we want to read yonr pleasant saying. No use to keep it baek any longer yon see we know what's in it ! Jill Cai.cctatiojcs. boni ot tne ie- n ., Hiocratic papers are hugging the notion Kansas intend to vote against it. The Herald i rather too sanguine. Msny Rrpnl.Iicsn do not think the apportion ment jnst, and have denounced it ; but they do not intend to let thnt one Article influence them to vote airaiust all the gO'xl lliiugs coutaincd iu the Constitu tion. Their principal objection to the apportionment is, that it looks too much like Demorratie apportionments. Bnt even if they had felt indifferent about vo ting for the Constitution, their minds have undergone a change, since they have heard the demagogue cries of the Slavers sgainst it, and have seen the violent op position of their partisans, from the Go vernor down to the most insignificant party tool. Every Republican in North ern Kansas, who goes to the polls, will vote for the Constitution. The Slavers may rally their own party strength sgainst it, but that is considerably mixed i Business Charges. B. F. Ruffner fc Co. have closed out their mercantile es tablishment,' and gone out of business, C. Dana Sayrs is now in St Louis, pur chasing an extensive stock of Groceries, which he will immediately open in this place, together with a large stock of Dry Goods which he has already received from the East. He intends to offer extra bar gains. ' Gov. Medary. This gentleman left our city, last vVednesdsy, for Washing ton City. We did not learn the occasion of his visit Leeompton Democrat.

The Speaker and Clerk or the Next House. Tlie Washington correspondent ot the JJoston Journal say : The chance for the election of Mr. Cor win as Speaker of the next House are A No. 1. Just now J. W. Forney ha de cidedly the 'inside track' for the clerkship, and I am inclined to think if Mr. Corwin is chosen to wield the gartl, Mr. Forney wm have the pen. Among other gentle men spoken of as candidates for the clerk ship, are Hon. Warner L. Underwood of Kentucky, and Gen. Scbouler of Massa chusetts, both of whom are "worthy and well qualified." Some amusement has been created by circulars recommending as a candidate lor Clerk of tbe Honse. Dr. Chaffe, of Springfield. Gen. Cullom has also an eye to an election to hie old post, bnt no movement will be made by hi friend until after hi trial, which will soon come off here.

(Special dispatch to the Missouri Democrat) Kaksas Crrr. August 18. The Western Metropolitan Extra bas tbe following : This (Friday.) morning, Mr. cnaries A. Hassder. a merchant at Emporia, ar rived in this city, bringing news of an alarming nature concerning recent attacks by the Indians npon tbe settlers ol V nite water and Walnut Rivers, in Butler and Greenwood Counties, Kansas Territory. Tbe number of Kaw, Osage, and Ca manche Indians in that vicinity, is about 5.000.-all warriors. They have lately removed from the Little Arkansas, where they have been collecting for some time back, for the purpose, it seems, of driving back the settlers from the frontier. Some interpret their motive to be revenge for the banging ol tbe two ivaws at council Grove, some time since ; but thia would hardly seem so. as the point of attack ia some seventy miles distant, it may. however, be a plan to decoy the men away so that the point mentioned will fall an easier prey. Certain it is that the people at the Grove have anticipated an attack for some time.

The Senate Will Reject ! We call attention to the communica tion of "Ion," the correspondent of the Baltimore Sun one of the, if not the most reliable in favor of the Democracy. For the second time, he has advanced this ssme view viz: thst Ksnsas will not be admitted because the English BiTT was not followed. All this means one thing that no Free State will he admitted, if pie Slave Pow er in the South can prevent it Jt will resort, for this end, to technicality, abuse of power, or a violation of law. It will defy alike the will or the interest of the people. It is vain for the Herald to brag of the conrage of the Democracy, unless it mesns to combine servility and wickedness as proof of it. .It is ntterly vain for it to prate about free States, or Free State principles, unless it means to offer resist anceto both, directly or indirectly, as ev idence of its . false statements. Nothing but fear will compel the Democratic Sen ate to admit Kansas. If during the win' ter it shall appear in the Senate's opinion. that bar rejection will make compact the North, and divide the South in 1860. she will become a State ; if not, not. Save daring belongs to party and pluck to partisan, the Democracy has none of either. It cow to tbe South and before it . It links knee deep in the mud of ser vility, and will sink down to the lowest and to that lower Jeep, for office or for power. " Ibe old Democratic party. saya the Herald, "dreads nothing nnder the light or the snn. Why then does it not denounce the disunionists of the Sonth ? Why does it not meet the ex tremists there, a it meet the extremists of the North ? The whole action of the Democracy North, is covered over wth fear. If it hates, it dreads the power it serves. If Kansas is rejected, it will Be rejected because she is a free State. "Ion" ad mits that The Sonth asks the rejection on this ground, and the servilea of the North will grant it npon this ground, and npon no other ground. Our belief is (mingled with doubt) that the South will not dare reject Kansas. Leaven- worth Timet. Or Course. The Journal of Com merce, (Kansas City, Mo.,) and all the Missouri papers that used to nrge on the invasion of Kansas by tbe villains and scoundrels of that State, relentlessly op pose the Wyandotte Convention. All those men who were identified with the burning of Free State men's houses. plundering their homes, and scattering the nre brands of death all over Kansas in '55 and '56, ferociously denounce the Wyandotte Constitution. Without exception, those persons who now desire, or ever have labored to make Kansas a Slave State, are opposing the Wyandotte Constitution. Those who supported the odious and wicked Leeompton Constitution are in censed with, and pour ant fierce wrath upon the Wyandotte Constitution. Why? The Wyandotte Constitution makes Kansas free. These men wanted to blacken it with slavery. Lawrtnct Rep. The Coamro Wheat Crop.

Admission of KasaU. "Ton.! Washington correspondent of the Baltimore Sun, in thesecret and privy to the wishes ot tne Aununmrsuuu, thinks that Kansas will not be admitted as a State nnder our recently formed Con stitntion. He says : In the first place, the provisions ol tne "EnirlUh bill" have not been complied - -a, ... a . 1 J J itb. The Constitution lateiy unopi was tne wort oi ivopirm. wu. not called nnder the provision of that bill. It doea not appear that any census of the inhabitants has been yet Uken, and it is uncertain whether the number, ex cluding Pike's Peak, will reach 93.0W. which the "English act ' require. Tbe Pike' Peakera cannot be enumer ated, because their region is not included in the boundaries of the State as axed oy the Convention. There ia another ground of opposition ta the admission of Kansas the me which the Republicans urged against the admission of Oregon that tne ionsiuu tion presented exclude negro nflrge. The Senate may, considering the im portant influence which the one opposi tion representative in the next Congress msy have npon the Presidential election if it come into tbe House, reiuse tneir as sent to a bill for the admission of Ksn sas. If Kansas comes into the Union there will be thirtv-four States. If the PWai- dential election fail before the people, and come into the House while thirty- three States only are represented there. the Democratic candidate, nominated by the Cbarlestcn Convention, my have the msiorify of the whole mmher, an I be .chosen.

The uuterrified Democracy have been holding a matting in Johnson County, and we are told that one Farmer Evans delivered a touching appeal to hi fellow -Democrat a. extract a stray pearl : "Of course, if the negro children can go to school in tny district, if he is smart enough, be might, perhaps, be engaged to teach and whip my children. "The spesker on this point was truly eloquent, and brought the teart to many eye. The first paragraph of the above ia de licious. Farmer Evans must be a remark able irenins, not only fond of bis babies. bnt death on darkies and grammar. Let ns hope kind Providence will avert the calamity he dreads, and that his children may neither be tanght nor whipped by pugilistic and juvenile Nubians. On the wings of fancy we are carried to that rally in the Connty of Johnson We see sturdy Evsns swaying and heav ing to the motion of his tumultuons elo quence. And as he mounts the African, he rises with his theme till the Johnson County Democrats break forth in a loud and general wail. A lovely sight. Pity that "the anti quated" of the Herald was not there. Gen. Eastin in tears I A .Raphael there had'st had a worthy subject tor his im mortal pencil. Leavenworth Timet. A Distinouished Sommsrsit. It will be seen by a dispatch, printed in an other column, that the Administration has exe cuted a complete summerset on the ones- tion of the protection doe to naturalized citizens abroad, and that the Cabinet has set old Mr. Cass to eating his Le Clerc letter without Sauce. That onr readers may judge how completely the two doc trines are at variance we print the Le Clerc letter again : Department or State. ) Washington, May 17, 1859. J To Mr. Frux Le Clerc, Memphis, Tens.: Sir Your letter of the 13th in stant bas been received. In reply, I have to state that it is understood that tbe French Government claims military ser vice from all natives of France who may be found within its jurisdiction. Your naturalization in thia country will exempt yon from that claim if yon sbonld volun tarily return thither. I am sir, your obedient servant, LEWIS CASS. The import of this sudden and ludi crous change of opinion on a question of nstional honor and international law ia, that the Democratic party are driven by their feart to a maintenance of the right of foreign born citizens which could not be extorted from them by the logic or facts, history or American pnn ciples. Gov. Wise a a Candidate roa the Presidenct. Washington. Aog. 4. Gov. Wise of Virginia, is the moat active and open candidate for the Presidency among the list of possible or probable aspirants, lne Kicntnond Enquirer, edi ted by hi son, does not have tbe slightest hesitation in advocating the father of the editor for this position, in editorials and through the medium of communication and correspondence. There is a frank ness, too, in the Governor's own treatment of tbe ease that commands my admira tion. He exhibits a rushing readiness to speak out at length on every question that must rescue him from the wish to deal in any Delpbie phrase. That he has many warm friend in. Virginia csnnot be doubt ed not ao much, it is true, among the politician aa among the masse of the Democracy. Hi dashing eloquence, his personal integrity, and ibe memory of bis campaign of 1855. are all ao much stock in trade. I am happy to tell yon that although be and Judge Douglas dif fer most materially fa reference to the great issue of the day, they are on terms of tbe most cordial friendship, if tbe Richmond Enquirer's disposition to de justice to tbe "Little Giant" is sincere.

It is bnt add that the Metropolitan dissenti f the suffrage article because it deem fc liberal to foreigners and too restricti to the Indians. Its comments npon S scnrrilons diatribes of the Journal truthful yet scorching : 1 Bnt we are not going to run to ncito extreme as the Journal, an I ssy that 'w a black-hearted instance of trrtnn J have nVK had occasion to record." Tv, Leeompton villainy was a hundred time, more Uaek-kearled and tyrannical, h in fact, the only thing that standi v out a parallel in infamy in the poluicj annaiK oi mix or maj otuer country. A the Journal's party are responsible fork But to show that the Journal U sitb,,. very forgetful or ignorant, we will tits him to a few cases that will show that hi he doe know of instances eqnally "U. hearted snd tyrannical," and which kii party tuuit father. Doesnot the Journal know that iD tin good old Democratic State of Virginia the Constitution prohibits the free sn.i in. dependent citizen of the United States from exercising tbe right of suffrage, jnst because he happens to be so poor at to not own re! estate, to tbe amount of twenty five dollars? Hey, does the Jwr. nil know th it ? Worse still ; that jsm free and independent citizen of the United States still cannot vote unless he U housekeeper and head of a family. Dcx tbe Jonrn.il know that? Nothing black hearted about that no tyranny there, U there ? Again. Does the Journal know that in that intensely Democratic State of South Carolina thia ssme free snd inj pendent citizen of the United States mast own land to the amount of 8250 to entitle him to vote? Nothing tyrannical or black-hearted about that, we presume! In the Democratic State of Kentnckj, tbe Constitution reads thus: "In all election!, every free male citizen (negroes, mulattos and Indians excepted, ) who," 4c No, Mr. Journal, open your eyes and look it it wipe yonr glasses and look again "never had occasion to record" anrtbing like it, hey ? Well, take up yonr pea and record it now. And whenever yon come across anything that the Opposition have done that looks more black-hearted and tyrannical than anything yon hart ever heard of, jnst bet yonr bottom dollar that by looking np the record yon ran ' find deeds jnst as bad, ami ten times ttnrst. that must forever lie at the door of tU Democracy. We condemn it wh-rerw found be ye eqnally honest. How the Filmore ADxixismnoi Acted ! Francis Allibert, a native ftl Department de Var, in the Sjiitti of France, left there dnring tlio drawing nf the conscription in 1839, and wasartnal ly drawn as a conscript, and was there fore an echape de conscription. He ar rived at New Orleans, ma le tlie mml application fir citizenship, and was duly natnrnlized in 1845. lie was successful in business in Louisiana, and in July, 1852, after an absence of nearly fonrtees years, he visited his family in his n.iiire village, and, throngh the vigil.int police in France, was arrested in twenty four hours after his return. He im mediately wrote to Mr. Hodge, the nearest Americt Consul.' The latter, that he might the better attend to the case, immediately re qnesteJ that Mr. Allibert might be brongbt to Marseilles, which request was promptly acceded to by the General in-chief com manding the military division. He wm there brongbt before the Tribunal it Quern as an Insoumis. snd condemned. Mr. Allibert wss willing to offer 4.000 franca for a snbstitnte. bnt Mr. HoHg would not permit it. Our Conn! appear ed before tbe Tribunal de Guerre, ani after two trials, sncceded. The decree, that he was an American citizen made ; Mr. Hodge gave him a passport, which was vised by the police. . Edward Everett, on the 3d of March. 1853. (tbe last day of his special term,) wrote a complimentary letter to Mr. Hodge, in which he said in substance: I trust this case will be considered a precedent, snd that hereafter naturalized citizens of the Unite.! States may viut France without danger of arrest for mili tary service. How different this action from the r sillanimous conduct of Gen.
