It is to be the -completion, the finishing up, the crowning of the great work which the Free State people have had in hand. This will be the last election for a long while, and Republicans are urged to strike once more. Let no o:ie remain at home, no matter what the State of the weather may be. On that day the future character of Kansas is to b decided whether she snail be an honor or a dis grace to the galaxy of States. Use your endeavors to make her an honor, by go ing to the polls, and voting the Republi can ticket. We need not say more. V Brow. Everything is Brown. One can see, hear or dream of nothing but Brown. It comes from every direction, and in every shape. From the East, we are inundated with news of old Osawat omie Brown and his insurrection. From the South, come startling accounts of the destruction' of Brownsville, in Texas, by Gortinas and his band. At home, we are edified with the gymnastics of G. W. Brown, of the Herald of Freedom. When will all this cease? Soon, we hope. Osawatomie is approaching his last honr; time wili place Brownsville to rights ; and G. W. is not disagreea ble, when not stirred up. Let ns have a change of colors ! A political discussion was held at Iowa Point, on Friday evening last ; and after the conclusion of the regular speaking, a Republican asked permission to state a few facts, but was refused a hearing by the honost Democracy who role in that town, upon the pretext that he was not a candidate, and therefore had no right to speak ! How was it in this place, on the following evening ? After the regular discussion, several Dem ocrats pitched in at ramdom, and no one attempted to prevent them. Such is the difference between a Democratic and a Republican people. XT" One of tbe proprietors of the Lea enworth Daily Dispatch lately with drew from the concern, and the paper announced that he did so in consequence of having received the agreeable intelli gence that he had fallen heir to a valua ble estate. As he came into possession of the estate by the death of his father, it must have been a very agreeable circum stance, indeed! If his father and mother had both died, we presume the Dispatch would have called it glorious news 1 We have received the first num ber of the Nebraska Herald, a neat and ably conducted paper, published at Ne maha City, Nebraska, by Fairbrother & Hacker, at 82 a year. Southern Ne braska, as shown by the recent vote, is decidedly Republican, and heeds just such an organ as the Herald to advance the ia teres ts of that party. The Repub licans of Southern Nebraska owe the Herald a liberal support . ' Congress convenes on next Mon day. If a speedy organisation of the House is effected, we may be able to lay the President's Message before our read ore, week after next But chances are not at present favorable for a speedy or ganization, and the Message may be de layed until near the Holidays, or after. 7 XT A contemplated negro insurrection has been discovered in Tennessee. The leader, who is said to be an accomplice of Old Brown, is an extensive slavehold er near Memphis, ' named Palmer. It will be a hard matter to saddle him npon the Black Republi cans 'Ohio "in Xanreir A resident of Kansas, who has been conversant with Ohio politics for the past twenty years, will find such a similarity between the old stagers there aad the pre sent political characters here, that he will almost be led to imagine that the Ohio of other days has been transferred to Kansas, s - Hers we have SamT Medary, for twen ty years the chief liar and blackguard of Ohio, who slandered and abused Henry Clsy and Gen.

Yaughan, who, as editor of the Cincinnati Gaxette, : in former days, probably wielded a great j er influence than any other man in the ' West ; he is now stumping Kansas for , the Republican cause. And there is Tom jEwing. Jr., candidate for Chief Justice, a son of old Salt Boiler Tom, of Ohio. who marshalled the Whig forces to bat tie, in former years. We have Rees, of Franklin County. formerly editor of the Greenville Journal, who was a member of the Leavenworth Constitutional Convention : and James ITanwsy, also from Darke County, member of the Wyandotte Convention ; and P. B. Plumb, of the Emporia News, formerly of the Xenia News; and R. McBratney, of Atchison, formerly of the Xenia Torch-Light, who would not sup port Taylor for the Presidency, although he has since snpported worse men. More than half of the candidates on both the Repnblican and Democratic State tickets, are Ohioans ; and among the rank and file there are thousands from the same State. Kansas mnst be a sprout of Ohio, which, having been stuck into the rich prairie ground west of the Mis souri, has taken root, and, in growth and politics, is imitating the parent stock So mote it be. Saltt. Cassius M. Clay, whatever hU enomies may say of him, at leaiit has the merit of speaking plainly, and to the point. His epeeohes usually contain more truth than poetry. Here is a spe cimen. He recently made a speech at Covington, Kentucky, in which the mob that destroyed tha Free Soil paper at Newport, was handled without gloves. In the course of his remarks, he was in terrupted by a voice in the crowd, tell ing him to set his slaves free, to which he replied as follows : They are. and now I want to do the noxt best thing. I want to set those fel lows that call thorn salves Democrats free, for God knows they need it more than the niggers. Now, gentlemen, if you will allow me to tell yon, niggors get a good master sometimes, but your mas tors neither feed or cloths you, but put their hands in the excheqner to take ont the contents, and the devil of a bit of it do they give to yon poor fellows. I have often thought of this as I have seen Cnffy, black and sleek, working in the field, and then have seen the lazy, dirty, lonsy Democrats, unfed and ragged, halloaing "hurrah tor Democracy, and damn nig gerism." Tbe Leavenworth Herald still pretends to claim a Demacratic majority in the Territorial Legislature, and inti mates that Parrott's election ia not cer tain. This is done in order to revive the crushed and drooping spirits of the De mocracy, and induce them to make a desperate fight at the eoming election. But as well might the skeleton of .Napo leon be resurrected, in hopes of calling np tbe fallen hosts of Waterloo. There is a good Repnblican majority in both branches of the Legislature, Parrott is elected by over 2,000 majority, and De mocracy will be whipped worse than ev er, next Tnesdsy. XT They are now slaughtering hogs at the White Cloud Pork Honse, at the rate of between 200 and 800 per day. Fanners drive in their hogs, see them slaughtered and weighed, and go home with the cash in their pockets. This es tablishment is a permanent institution. Those who attempted to injure it, have drawn off, and woald have left fanners In the lurch, had not Mr. Bailey been on hand to bny their hogs. He is the man for them to depend npon, and they will hereafter give him the preference, in dis posing of their hogs ; for, in addition to his reliability, he usually pays a little better price than anybody else. e XT" A few Democratic pettifoggers met at Hiawatha, on last Saturday, styl ed themselves "the Members of the Bar," and selected a Democratic candidate for District Judge. We believe one Glick, ' of Atchison, is the person they selected for the honor of being beaten by Albert j L. Lee. 1 'fr Pacific Riilioid. Is there- eitixen of Kansas who does not desire to see the Pacific Railroad commenced and comple ted ? and is there one who does not think that the Road ought to start from some point in -.Kansas? But perhaps every one does not know why the Road has not yet even been located. We will tell them. It is because the Administration, with a Democratic Senate and a Demo cratic Hoose, were bent npon starting the Road from some point in Slave territory. They had control of all the Committees in both Honses of Congress, but .they well knew that if they reported a bill for the Railroad, fixing iu eastern terminus at a point South, there were enongh in- dependent men in the House to defeat the scheme, and fix upon some point in Kan- from ; therefore, in order to prevent this. they would report no bill at all, and the Road has not yet been commenced, lest the South should not reap all the benefits j of it. Remember, that if yon elect Judge ! H alderman to Congress, he will be a par ,tisan of that same party and Adminis- ators of the same stripe. If yon desire ' the welfare and prosperity of Kansas, f elect a Republican Legislature, and send Jadgo Conwsy to Congress. IatroRTAiT. We find the following in the Herald of Freedom : The Kansas Territorial Legislature, in enacting a city charter for White Clond at its last session, gave to the Mayor and board of council men power "To prevent the assembling of slaves. To impose fines, penalties and forfeitures on the owners and masters of slaves suffered to go at large upon the hiring of their own time, or to act or deal as free persons ; and to tax, restrain, regulate and prescribe the terms npon which free negroes and mulattoes shall be permitted to reside within the city." Have the city fathers a copy of tbe new charter ? If so, they should carry out its provisions. There are three slaves here ; and it sometimes happens that big Jim goes sparking Sarah, while little Jim sits in a corner and looks on. When such an assemblage of slaves takes place, it is the doty of the Council to go and disperse them ! XT" Arthur's Home Magazine, for December, is on onr table. "The Light Keeper's Daughter," Fashion Plate, and other engravings, are beautiful, and the reading is choice and entertaining. A new volume will begin with the January number, in which will be commenced one of T. 8. Arthur's charming Stories, en titled "After the Storm." Virginia F. Townsend will also contribute interesting Stories, such as she only knows how to write. Other talented writers are engaged, and nothing will be left undone to con tinue the Home Magazine in its present position, in the ranks of literature. Pub lished in Philadelphia, at 82 a year. XTGodey's Lady's Book, the Ladies' favorite for the past thirty years, com pletes the volume with the December number, which is now before ns. It is illustrated with several fine Steel Engra vings, a Colored Fashion Plate, and nu merous other engravings, making twenty eight illustrations in all, and contaning its nsual large amount of reading. As the Book commences, so it goes through the yearnever decreasing in interest a particle. Now is the time to subscribe for the eoming year. Published in Phil adelphia, at 83 a year. We will furnish it to any of our subscribers, for 82 a year. Literabt. We saw a trunk, the oth er day, with a card tacked on one end. containing the follow in direction : "Mrs. K Pashengen to Rull . Newbraehey." We presume it was intended to con vey the information that the trunk was the property of Mrs. K , who was a passenger for Rnlo, Nebraska. Messrs. Seaver and Ilerrick, Re I publiean candidates for the Legislature, and X. K. Stout, Democratic candidate for the Senate, favored our citizens, on Saturday evening last, with a short dis cussion, or, rather, defined their posi tioqs. Seaver and Herrick made deci dedly the best impression. Stout has the reputation of being i very clever man, but he can't make a speech, notwithstsn ding his friends and neighbors think he is a "gsul -snorter" in that line. XT The Great Republic Monthly, for November, is before ns, with its nsual variety of illustrations and reading mat ter. This work is not so valuable for its engravings as for its charming and in structive contributions, interspersed with the amusing. It numbers among its con tributors many of tbe best living authors, and is deservedly acquiring high repu tation. It is published by Oaksmith St Co., New York, at 83 a year. Jndge Halderman is extensively circulating copies of the Herald of Free dom throughout the Territory. Said papers contain insinuations and charges against M. F. Conway, tbe Judge's op ponent for Congress. This accounts for the milk in the cocoa-nut. What a good Republican paper the Herald of Freedom is, with the names of Chase and Baaks at its mat-heed I ' FmkNmiioct.Si ranch' howling having been done, about how Kansas would be overrun with free negroes in ease she adopted the Constitution, an ex change has taken tho trouble to huntnp the statistics of free negroes In the Free States, some of which have nothing to prohibit them, and compares them with the number in the Slave States, most of which have atrwnnona laws against their being in the 8tate, even to selling them into Slavery if they persist In remaining. The Free States, with a white population of 13.475,210, hare 196,282 free negroes. while the Slave States, with a white pop nlation of only 6.222,418. have 238.187 free negroes.' The Free States have more than twice as many whites as the Slave States ; yet the Slave States have over 40,000 more free negroes the Free States. Pennsylvania, the second State in the Union, and a Free State, has 63.626 free negroes; while Maryland, one of the smallest States, but slave, and lying right beside her, has 74.723. , New York, the lsrgest Free State, has 49,069; and Virgi nia, the largest Slave State, 54,333. Del aware, the smallest State in the Union, and Slave, has 18,073. Rhode Island, the smallest Free State, has 3.670. Mas sachusetts, where negroes are allowed all tbe privileges of the whites, has 9,064 ; while Louisiana, which has the most stringent laws against them of any State in the Union, has 17,462. New Hamp shire and Vermont, where negroes are eqnal with the whites, in civil rights, has neither of them a thousand free negroes ; while the Despotism of South Carolina, has 8,960. We might quote figures withont end. all running in the same way ; bnt we have given enongh to show the senseless ness of the miserable howl about free ne groes mining Kansas, because the Con stitution does not prohibit them from coming here. XT" The Atchison Union says we are mistaken in saying that Robert L. Pease, the Democratic candidate for Treasurer of State, is a Pro-Slavery man, and de sires ns to make the correction. We will take the Union's word for it, that Mr. Pease has heretofore claimed to be a Free State man. At the same time, we have not the least doubt that he voted against the Free State Constitution of Kansas, as did the editor of the Union, who was la Fremonter, in New York, in 1856. Opposition to the Constitution was noth ing more nor less than an Administration and a Pro-Slavery movement ; and the Democratic party is essentially a Tro Slavery party, althongh some of its mem bers may claim to be Free State in senti ment. Therefore, Mr. Pease and the edi tor of the Union, and all others who act with the Democratic party of Kansas, as at present constituted, are doing as much in favor of Slavery, and conse quently are as much Pro-Slavery men, as any of the old Border Ruffians. XT Our Mississippi valley is destin ed to become the garden of the world, bnt a dead weight on its population is the miasm which engenders billions diseases all over it Could an absolute antidote be fonnd to the malaria which exhales from its marshes, it is impossible to over estimate the consequences to onr prosper ity. We congratulate onr fellow citizens and fellow sufferers around us,' on the announcement, important if true, that Dr. J. C. Ayer, the celebrated medico Chemist of the East, has discovered just such an antidote ma "Agne Uure, which is supplied at a price that can ex clude no one from its benefits, and that is said to cure Fever and Agne and kind red diseases, to a moral certainty. Fam ily Visitor, Memphis. , XT' According to the Dispatch, the Democrats of Iowa Point, a week ago. nominatd A. Taylor and Giles A. Briggs for Justices of the Peace. Yet the Dem ocrats of this place have called a meet ing for Saturday evening, to make the faithful believe that they are making the nomination. Are the Iowa Point Demo crats the guardians of the party in this place, that they make nominations for them ? Or, do they fear that White Clond Democrats are not sound enough on the goose to fix np matters to suit them down there ? , The attempt to gain votes for Halderman, by publishing his Masonry, is likely to do him more harm than good. The shallow game is seen through by ev ery one, and is denounced by none more heartily than by Free Masons themselves. They have no desire that their Honorable Order shall be disgraced in this manner, and be made to appear, in the eyes of its enemies and the uninitiated, a political machine, which every true Mason has ever tried to prevent it from becoming. XT The Atlantic Monthly, for De cember, contains the conclusion of "Tbe Minister's Wooing, and has ten original contributions besides.

Awhile back, we used to receive a copy about once a month, filled with Constitutional Convention re ports ; hot now it has ceased coming al together. "- - v.- '. .-; Tex Boot ojj'tbr Othxb, Lia The Democracy are endeavoring to operate against Mr. Seaver in this place, by har ping npon the circumstance of his having carried to the Legislature, last Winter, a remonstrance against the petition of the citizens of White Clond. to be annexed to Brown County. They should sing dumb on that question, for a candidate on their own ticket is more blameable than Mr. Seaver. The remonstrance was originated and signed by tbe principal men of Iowa Point, prominent among whom was X. K. St ont. . They then sent it to Highland, and in order to enlist the co-operation of the people of that place, they represented that the proposed line wonld run through the centre of the High land town site, thus placing that town in a very nndosirable situation. Under this impression, most of the citizens of High land signed the remonstrance, and Mr. Seaver carried -it to Lawrence, where the Legislature was ia session. They re mained under the impression that the change of lines would have thrown their town into two Counties, until about a month since, when, the matter having been agitated again, for political capital, the truth was explained to them. If they had not been deceived by X. K. Stout it Co., they would never have signed the remonstrance, and White Cloud would now be where her citizens desired her to be placed. ' XT E. M. Lee has been around show ing Mr. Hatcher. Democratic candidate for the State Senate, to the people. They were here, on Tnesd ay. Mr. Hatch er may be a man of very good character, and may understand how to sell goods ; bnt the Democracy wigiild gain votes by keeping him at home. He has none of the ways desirable in a pnblic man, and cannot even make himself interesting to his friends. We do not believe the De mocracy nominated him for any other reason than to gain votes in Elwood. That party complain that the Constitu tion makes the Senate a do nothing body and we think, in nominrting Stent and Hatcher, they have selected two compe tent men to do it ! XTJohn B. Roy. an old Indian tra der, and proprietor of Roy's Ferry, over the Nemaha, between this place and Rnlo, died several days since. We understand that he had been on a drank, at Rnlo, and had boen beaten in a fight a day or two before ; and the effects of the liqnor and the whipping together are snppoeed to have killed him. Mr. Roy was a son of John Baptiste Roy, one of the earliest Indian trnders west of the Missouri, and was married to a half-blooded Iowa squaw.

Con way. ANOTHER ROORBACK NAILED. To At Editor of Ike Hsroli of Freedom The charge against me in your paper of the 5th of November, is fales. I have not seen Old Brown bnt once within the last two years, and that occasion, was more than a year ago. He called at my office in the Fall of 1853, and asked me to allow him to deposit with me. for safe keeping, certain papers connected with the business of the Kansas Relief Committee of 1856. This request I complied with, as a matter of course. The papers he left with me are now in my possession. They consist of promis sory notes, given by different individuals in Kansas, to the Relief Committee, for clothinz. provisions, dec. furnished to them by that Committee. It is not true, as stated, that ho "stopped" at my honse "when in Lawrence, incog, last summer. I did not see him last summer, and do not suppose he was in Lawrence at all at that time. When he came to Lawrence in the Fall of '58. he put np at the hotel of Mrs. Killam. next door to the office of the Herald of Freedom, withont any at tempt at concealment which was appar ent to me. He remained at my office only long enongh to dispose of his busi ness; and althongh I invited him to dine with me before he left the town, he dec! in ed the invitation. I had no knowledge of any of Old Brown's plans, either in Kansas or ont of it. He was a man of discernment and cantion, and I presume took care to reveal Ins enterprises only to such as wonld be likely to unite with him in their execution. In conclusion. I think it proper to say that I make this explanation from no considerations whatever personal to my self ; but only because I deem it doe to the Republican party, of which 1 am at present a candidate and representative. Very respectfully vonrs. m. f. Conway. Hf att, K. T., November 7th. 1859. The Gamic at Cn blestos. The game to be pursued at Charleston is fully developed, and understood in political circles. It is simply to re-affirm the Cincinnati platform in terms, adding a plank for the Dred Scott decision. This is the basis of compromise to bo adopted between the rival factions of the Democ racy, and which will enablo both to claim a victory, while asserting their respective doctrines in direct antagonism to each other. It was by this artful deception that snecess was obtained in 1856 a de ception which was openly ail milled in the Senate debate last session, when Mr. Brown, of Mississippi, declared, in reply to Mr. Donglas. the Sonth shonld not be "cheated again." Their only mode of re-union is by repeating the fraud. As lightning does not often Btrike twice on the ssme spot, it is hardly probable the next experiment will be attended with the same success as the first. Mr. Doug Iss is ready to crawl back into the regu lar organisation, and to snpport the Charleston nominee, without any refer ence to his antecedents. Washington Correspondence of the X. Y. Tribune. Kansas. The people of Kana. says the N. Y. Tribune, recently polled 15. 969 votes on the ratification of their New Constltntion a larger nnmW, we believe than was ever before polled in a Territo ry on a similar occasion. Oregon, now in the Union, and which had Senators nnd a Representative in thelat Congress, has never polled anything like that nnm her. Yet it is known that, owing to the lack of excitement and of personal inter est in the anestion to be decide, not more than two thirds of the legal votwa in Kansas voted at this election. We believe the poll at the approaching State election cannot fall mnrh if any dpIow 20.000.
