OX.. KILLER, KDITOB. TTEITS CLOTJD, XAJT8AS: Tkiniay, : : DecmUr 15, 1859. Cosoress. The Lower RoaM of thii dignified body has commenced its qner rellinf end fighting for the" season. No Speaker Is jet chosen, and no prospect of iL Sherman, Republican, received 110 votes oa the last ballot, bnt 118 were ne tessary for a choice. There is no telling when sn organization will be effected. The nigger question is np in foil blast, tad bids fair to exceed in bitterness any thing heretofore witnessed. Helper's " Impending Crisis" and Ilsrper's Ferry are the leading snbjects, and even the Kansas troubles ol 1856 are dragged in. Messrs. Kellogg and Logan, of Illinois, came near baring a knock-down, result ing from a dispate abont Douglas. Kel logg is a Republican, bot appears to be leading the Democrats all the aid in bis power to prevent an organization, by debating upon ontsida issues. Let tar-writers state that the President, in bis Message, will take decided ground against the Wysndotte Constitution. Perhaps it would be as well for the Fres ident to wait until the Constitution is presented to Congress, and that body asked to accept it. before be worries him self about it. It may be that the letter writers are mistaken; bat when wee collect that Buchanan went into an argu ment in favor of the Lecomptoa Swin dle, in bis Message two years ago, before the vote bad been taken npon ratification by the people, we have not much reason to expect any fairness at his hands. 6 tat-at-Home Repcbucaks. At the lata election, numbers of Republicans, as usual, staid at home, while the Democ racy brought out everything they could rake up at least, such was the case in this corner of the Territory. What is the use of men entertaining or professing certain political sentiments, if they stay at home at the only time when they can make a practical application of their politics? We are nnable to see through it. Urg ing and coaxing are of no avail they stand back, and see that taken from them which they bave the power to prevent. It is not the fault of many Republicans in this part of the Territory, that their opponents hsve not achieved a triumph. The Democracy here made a desperate effort, but hsve again failed to carry the precinct, although they took our advice, and brought reinforcements from beyond Cedar Creek. Next time, they will have to drum up .recruits from beyond Iowa Point. In one neighborhood in Brown County, we know of more than a dozen Republi cans who did not go to the polls. The excuse was, it was too cold, or they did not feel well, or they had work to attend to I Wednesday morning was decidedly more disagreeable than Tuesday, yet ev ery one of tbem was in White Cloud, to reach which, they had to travel a greater distance than to their voting place. Such Republicans will never carry an election. Qcbstioxs. When the Black Democ racy of Iowa Point burnt tar-barrels for joy at the defeat of Beeler, the White Cloud candidate for Councilman, did they save any to burn in honor of the lection of Stout, the Iowa Point candi date for Senator ? Have the Democracy gotten through with the job of tearing up all the stamps aad bushes from the bluffs about Iowa Point, as tbey intended to do if Stont was elected f What hs become of the wagon-loads of Iowa Point Democrats, who were go ing to come to White Cloud, to bave a general " tear," if their party carried the County ? ; . " The Most Ukuxdest Cct or All." The Dispatch, in glorifying over the increased Democratic vote of White Cloud, ssys : M Msy thousands of Democrats, yet unborn, be able to find the names of their great-great-grandfathers enrolled in the Spartan band of White Cloud." Now, to one acquainted with the des titute condition of the principal leaders of the While Cloud Democracy, touch ing the matter of progeny, the above will be viewed in the light of an unfeeling taunt! T Tb Electios. Tuesday, the 6th, was the coldest election dsy we ever witness ed, or ever expect to. In this Town ebtp, the Democrats increased their ma jority to about 55. A. Taylor and O. A Briggs are re-elected Justices of the Peace. In the County, the result seems to be a half-and-half affair, as at the last election. Local issues carried the day. ,; It is now a favorite remark among the Black Democracy, that the Chief is helping their party along. That may be tree ; but H seems to us a little singular, that they should be so violent in their de aunciatiens of a paper that is doing them so much good 1 Perhaps they will be gratified to learn that we intend to con time to M help them along !"

Since the con templated Democratic "blow-out" has been nipped in the bud, the Republi cans talk of burning tar, in honor of the defeat of Stout, and of the Republican triumph in the Territory. Let it be done, by all means. The Iowa Point Democ racy enjoyed themslves over the fraudu lent defeat of Beeler, because he is a citi zen of White Cloud ; now let ns return the compliment. . The Democracy of Iowa Point are stnng to the quick. Tbey have been playing with a high hand. They put up one Border Ruffian, and happened to elect him ; so they thought to repest the operstion, but have been signally foiled. Stout is the man who got up in the streets of Iowa Point, last Summer, and harangued and excited mob, calling upon them to lynch a man in violation of law. to hang him up without trial, npon the the charge of horse-stealing. This man. who thus sought to disregard and violate law, was set np as a proper person to make laws ; but the people here placed the seal of condemnation upon him. The charge was made against Mr. Seaver, that he had carried a remon strance to the Legislature, to thwart the will of the people of White Cloud. When Stout went into another part of the County, he chuckled over this, and boast ed that he had done as much as sny one in getting up that remonstrance, and had paid as much as any one towards defray ing the expenses of taking it to the Leg islature. He has the conciousness of knowing that the Republican majority in White Cloud, although small, is what knocks the sand from under his feet. Let the tar burn. Get the Best Detector. Peterson's Countefeit Detector and Bank Note List for December has been received by ns, and is corrected by.Drexel & Co.. the well-known Bankers and Brokers, and it is the best and most reliable Detector of Counterfeits and Altered Notes published in this country. The nnmber issued this day fully describes Seventy-Five Coun terfeits, and contains full descriptions of all bogus bank notes that are being alter ed to suit various banks all over the country, and which are being put into extensive circulation. It also contains several other pages of very valuable in formation of everything pertaining to bank notes. It has been considerably enlarged, having now forty pages in, and contains occasionally, facsimiles of sever al hundred gold and silver coins, besides. We bave no hesitation in pronouncing it the roost complete, reliable and best pub lication of the kind in the United States, as it is not nied to subserve the interest of any banking-house, as most of the so called Detectors are. It should be in the hands of every storekeeper in the whole country ; and we would advise all per sons who handle money to send One Dollar in a letter, for a year's snbscrib tion, to the publishers, and thus subscri be for the monthly issne. It is rublisled by T. B. Peterson fe Brothers, No. 306 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, to whom all letters should be addressed. A copy of "Peterson's Complete Coin Book," the most perfect and complete Book of Coins in the world, will also be given, gratis, to all subscribers for I860. Philadelphia Ledger. The Reoistrt, at Iowa Point. At the late election, the Registry law, and every other election law, were disregarded by the Judges at Iowa Point. What reliance can be placed in the oath of such men, who permit fraudulent voting, re gardless of the oath they have taken to obey the laws ? We personally know of five Democrats whose votes were re jected at this place, because their names were not registered ; but they' immedi ately mounted horses and went to Iowa Point, swearing that they were determin ed to vote and they did every one of them vote there. One of them had not been in the Territory three months, when a residence of six months was required We hsve not the least doubt that many more such votes were polled at the Point. We have heard it intimated that the election will be contested, on the above ground. The Republican candidates owe it to themselves, and to the party, to do so. The entire precinct can be thrown out, without any trouble. If this were done once, perhaps it would teach the judges at that place to regard the laws and their oaths ; for not an election pas ses but that frauds are permitted at the Iowa Point precinct. Wasted. An old cow with the scours, to produce brains for the editor of the Iowa Point Dispatch. A frozen turnip, to edit the White Cloud department of the Dispatch. A dead' skunk, as a companion and bedfellow for the editor of the Dispatch, and to assist him in befouling decent people, Several men who have ao scruples against perjuring themselves, to serve as judges of the next election at Iowa Point An egg-sucking dog, to help the Dem ocrats of Iowa Point look sheepish at the defeat of X. K. Stout 3 S3T At the late election, there were 105 votes polled at this precinct la the Township, 404. This is the most popu Ions Township in the County. Those of our subscribers who promised to bring ns potatoes, are noti fied that several bushels would be very acceptable, just now. "Whom ths Gods wocld Dbstbot, Thbt First Mabb Mad." The snot-nose who dispenses bis weekly emissions of dog-puke through the columns of the Iowa Point Dispatch, seems to consider it the height of wit and smartness to blackguard men whose hairs are gray. Not content with abusing Mr. Seaver, who was known and respected while the editor of the Dispatch was yet in a liquid state, he has turned his sewer of filth against private individuals. For several weeks he has been abusing Mr. Scrafford. an old, respectable and in dustrious citizen of Iowa Point, who has ever thrown his influence in favor of that place, in questions where the interests of the town were concerned, but who votes the Republicsn ticket, and labors for the success of that party. What other cause there msy be for this abuse, we do not know, unless it be that the editor is in debted to Mr. Scrafford, and wants to psy him in that which he possesses in the greatest abundance filth. Bat Mr. Scrafford having treated his abuse with silent contempt, the editor now directs his slop-spout at Mr. Dor land, of this place, another private citi zen, who never saw him, and certainly never harmed him. The pretext seems to bave been the vote of a man who was crazy, blind and drunk either one of which failings wss sufficient to make him a first-rate Democrat Said individual, on election day, approached the polls in this place, escorted by his wife and four or five Democrats, all of whom appeared anxious to supply him with a ticket, but he evinced a disposition to be noisy and contrary. Mr. Dorland stood by, and seeing so msny persons anxious to serve one man, held out a Republican ticket. and jokingly ssid, " Here is an Old Line Whig ticket, that is the kind you want." He hsd no thought or expectation that the man would vote any other than a Democratic ticket ; but the fellow seem ed taken with the idea, and to the sur prise of all, seized the ticket and put it into the box, notwithstanding the expos tulations of the crowd of Democrats who surrounded him. For this, Mr. Dor land's name is drsgged before the public, and he is stigmstized as a Black Repub lican demagogue, charged with stealing a blind man's vote, and is besmeared with a quarter of a column of slime. It is said that " whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad." From the rantings of the Dispatch, we doubt not that its destruction is near. It may not be the gods who will consummate the deed a collapsed exchequer will in all probability have considerable to do in precipitating the crisis. Gleason's Publications. F. Gleason, of Boston, is truly the Prince of Pub lishers, and whatever he takes hold of, is sure to succeed. His splendid Picto rial Line-of-Battle Ship is just approach ing the close of its first year, and has al ready attained a circulation unparalleled in the history of newspapers. And well it deserves it; for, in tastefulness of design, neatness of appearance, and quality of contributions and beauty of il lustrations, it is a paragon in the literary world. Its Romances, Tales, Sketches, Poetry, etc., are of the highest order, and are contributed by the ablest American writers, all of whom are engaged to write for its columns. Hereafter it will be called "Gleason's Pictorial." It will also be greatly enlarged, and changed in form, to a paper of 16 pages. Now is the time to subscribe for the new year. Gleason has another enterprise in hand, which is destined to eclipse anything yet undertaken. On the first of January, 1860, he will commence the publieation of the largest, most magnificentand val uable literary weekly journal yet attempt ed in this country, to be called the "Lit erary Companion," devoted to'polite lit erature, wit and humor, prose and poetic gems. An unrivalled corps of contribu tors has been engaged, and every depart ment will be under the most finished sys tsm that Gleason's experience as a pub lisher could devise. It will be a mam moth paper of 16 pages, and will con tain twice as much reading as any other 82 weekly. The price of "Gleason's Pictorial" and the "Literary Companion" will be the ssme, viz : 1 copy, one year, 82 ; 2 cop ies, 83 ; 4 copies, 85 ; 10 copies, 810. Both publicstions together, one year, 83. Address F. Gleason, Publisher, Corner of Tremont and Bromfield Streets, Boa ton, Mass. Peterson's Ladies' National Mag azine, for January, is the first Magazine on our table, for 1860. It is splendidly illustrated the engravings in this nnm ber being "Little Red .Riding Hood," "Blind Man's Buff," "Married and Hap py," Colored Fashion Tlate, Patterns, 4 c It also contains a piece of Music, and a great variety of prose and poetical matter of a high order of merit Two absorbing Novelets are commenced in this number "The Ruling Passion," by Mrs. Anna S.

TIIEIiAST GIMI KANSAS "ALL HUNC!" Agreeably to a promise made a month since, we bring out our Big Gun, to cel ebrate another glorious Republican victo ry. The whole Republican State ticket is elected by about 3.000 majority; a Republican Congressman is chosen ; and the Legislature is overwhelmingly Re publican in both branches, thus securing two Republican United States Senators. The Democrats hare carried Leaven worth by a considerable majority, John son by about 50, bave gained half a vic tory in Doniphan, and have probably carried Marshall. Three Counties and a half will be about the sum totsl of their victories. Even the doubtful Counties of Atchison, Jefferson and Wysndotte have given good Republican majorities. The Senate consists of 25 members, and the House of 75. The Democrats elect 1 Senator in Doniphan, and 3 in Leavenworth ; and 3 Representatives in Doniphan, and 9 in Leavenworth. The Legislature, therefore, will stand Sen ate, 21 Republicans, 4 Democrats; House, 63 Republicans, 12 Democrats. Repub lican majority on joint ballot, only 68 I Sixteen members out of one hundred, is doing a smashing business I There is not enoogh Democracy left for seed, and next year's crop will be a total failure! Democracy had boasted that Republi canism was dying out. It was under the weather, during the early part of the sea son ; but it took a physic, and drove the corruption with which its system wss in fected, to the Democracy, and it proved to be more than that debilitated and al ready festering organization could with stand I We are now paying the highest mar ket price for Democrats. We want to embalm them, after tho manner of Egyp tian mummies. In a few years from now, they will be a great- curiosity. In the succeeding generation, it will be impos sible to make people believe that there ever existed such an animal as a Kansas Democrat, unless a specimen be produced as proof ! The Proof. The "Snubeldyke" of the Dispatch reads us another senseless homily, the object of which is to prove what cannot be proven that the Demo cratic party of Kansas is not thoroughly Pro-Slavery, in flesh, bone and marrow. He asks us how many men in our own vi cinity, who are now acting with the Dem ocratic party, formerly acted with the Free State party ? For his especial benefit, we have procured a list of the persons who voted the Democratic tieket at this precinct, last week. The list is now be fore ns, and we arrive at the following result: Whole number of votes, 48. Pro-Slavery men, 34. Free State men, 6. The remaining 8 are Democrats "any how," without knowing or caring what Democracy is. If the party were Aboli tion, Amalgamation, Pro-Slavery, Dis union, Free State, or anything else, they wouldn't know the difference, but would vote with the party just because it is called Democratic. A number of those whom we have classified as Pro-Slavery and Fro..ate, are in the ssme fix, but we hsve set them down according to their professions. If the Dispatch is not satis fied, it can call and see the list. The Democratic party is composed of abont the same proportions throughout the Ter ritory. The Electioh Over. The elections are over at last, and we are very glad of it ; for we are heartily tired of poli tics. Since early Spring, it has been nothing but a succession of elections as soon as one was over, the excitement was raised and the wrangling commenced for another. . It is now time to attend to something. else, and. to heal the animosi ties and ill feelings which the subject of political excitement has produced. Af ter the present week, we intend to devote mnch less space to politics than hereto fore, and treat the reader to something better. Of course, we shall eontinne to have our ssy ia political matters; but for the present we mean to touch it light ly. In the coming Presidential campaign, if Edward Bates, or John Bell, or some other good man, ia a candidate for the Presidency, we mean to "pitch in ; bnt before that time arrives, there will be a good breathing spell, and we mean to im prove it 0 Xy The Indiana were on a drunk, last Friday night, down ia the bottom, and during the spree, one of them inflicted two severe stabs npon another one back of the shoulder blade, and the other ia the rump. The wounds were dressed by Drs. Shreve and Macy, and are probably not dangerous. There is a thing with two legs borrowing dowa in the bottom, who follows the business of selling whis key to the Indians, and they are almost constantly drunk. It seems that law is impotent to eheck this evil. Is there no way to stop it? 'Atchisob akb Brows. These Coun ties hsve done nobly. Brown cast a light vote, but it was pretty much all on the right side. She gives an average Repub lican majority of about 170. Dntton, for the Senate, has over 200. Atchison gives nearly 100 Republican majority. The Democracy counted upon 175 ma jority in Atchison, and calculated th at they could reduce the Republican majori ty in Brown to almost nothing, aad there by carry the District To effect this they called to their aid two renegade Repub licans in Brown. Tbey nominated Sam uel W. Wade for the Senate, and Dr. George E. Irvin for the House. Wade, up to within a few days of the election, was a professed Republican. He ran as an independent Republican candidate for County Treasurer, in No vember, and was besten, which no doubt soured him, and a proffer of the Sena torship finished him. He worked unre mittingly, and was beaten magnificently. At Hiawatha, where he resides, he re ceived all the way to 2 votes, and one of them is supposed to have been his own. He was so badly beaten in Brown, that he had nothing to hope for from the highest Democratic figure in Atchison. Irvin was also a Republican, and at tended a Republican Convention, as a Delegate, but a few days before the elec tion ; but things not having been done to uit him, he declared himself a Demo crat, and, to clinch it. received the nomi nation for Representative. Local issues were sprung in his favor, and he received considerable Republican support. Smith, his opponent, best him in Brown less than 10 votes. Irvin was jubilsnt. Atchison would give a rousing Democrat ic majority, and that little majority in Browa would be nowhere. Eut lo I Atchison came np with a Republican majority, and Irvin was "gone np I" Thus msy traitors ever be rewarded. Had they stood firm, they might in time have received office ; but aa it is, their new-found allies hsve proven powerless toelevate them, and the Republicans have set their mark upon them. After all, the safest motto is "Honesty is the best policy," time-worn though it be. Looa at it. The result of the elec tion in this Connty, shows that both par ties hsve been beantifully "sold," for the benefit of certain localities. The Marys- ville and the Palermo Railroads have worked for their own interest, and left the balance of the County in the lurch. While both parties in a portion of the County were working with all their might for principle, their professed friends in Washington and Marion Townships were trading them off. The retnrns, this time, speak too loudly to be explained away! If either the Democrats or Republicans of these Townships can hereafter ask their friends in the northern part of the County to act in unison with them, they will be possessed of more assurance than we give them credit for. Seaver, on the Republi can ticket, and Stout, on the Democratic ticket, were both betrayed. Had both parties in Washington Township acted in good faith. Stout would have been elected to the Senate, and Herrick to the House. There is not a single member elected to the Legislature north of Wolf River. To the Territorial Legislature, there is but one, and he succeeded by the "skin of his teeth." We ask both par parties to look at this matter carefully. If they still continue to fight over poli tics, they may make up their minds to be sold again. If the northern portion of Doniphan County desires a voice in the Legislature, to look after her interests, her people must take to selfishness, and band together, irrespective of party, and take care of "number one." The facts are so plain that a blind man may see themT Think over them ; bot do not indulge in too much tslk, for "talk will not buy whiskey." Let ns see if the people will profit by the lesson taught them. The Pork Bosibess. The following is from the St Joseph Gazette : The recent improvement in the Pork market east is exercising an influence np on the trade through this region. From a gentleman from Holt County we learn that the packers of that region have not yet commenced operations, but that the market is about 83.25 gross at the pen, which is regarded as equivalent to 84.00 net. That the hogs of the upper country are being bought rapidly at that rate, and principally by Leavenworth packers, who seem to bave more confidence then our dealers. The very favorable weatherfor fattening and the superabundance of corn will make the yield of pork very large. At the figures sbove indicated it occurs to ns our producers bave little to complain of. Indeed the financial condition of the country oust speedily be greatly im proved. . We frequently find such unfair state ments in the St Joseph papers. Forest City, with them, is the entire upper coon try ; and when the . pork business is not going on ia Forest City, these papers an nounce that the business is not going oa in Holt Connty. Mr. Bailey's establish ment ia in Holt County, and has been in full operation for a month past The Gazette must certainly have knowa this to be the ease. The prices paid, are the same as in St Joseph. tW The Knickerbocker, for Decem ber, is on our table, with its never failing variety of valuable contributions, and its spicy Editor's Table. The Kaicerbocker, for 1860, will aot be behind any ef its cotemporaries. It ia a publication which will last Published in'New York, at 83 a year. '-'" c That Masovbt Business. The St Joseph West copies our remarks oa the attempt of the Democracy to secure votes for Halderman, oa the strength of his being a Free Mason, and asks the Leav enworth Herald if the charge ia true. If the West exchanges with the Herald, and reads it, there was no need to ask the question ; for such an article appear ed in the Herald, some fonr weeks since, snd wss copied into nearly every Demo cratic paper in the Territory. We are led to think that Halderman did not dis approve of this business, from the fact that he sent copies of the Herald contain ing the article, to all parts of the Terri tory, under his own autograph. That it availed him nothing, the result of the election proves. 7 Coxa to thb Dabcb.
