Every newspaper Is doing iu share of pltehing in, for or sgeinst mom psrticu W Presidential aspirant ; and we regret to (ay that number of Republican pa ers display far more alacrity ia fighting Edward Bates than they do the common enemy. Democracy. This is eepecially troe of the Seward ergane ia Kansas. They certainly hire a right to their choice and to their opinions, bnt they resort to species of warfare which is unmanly and unjust. For example: they reiterate the charge that Mr. Bates did not eman cipate his slaTes, bnt that they escaped (rots him, and when he had fruitlessly csed every means in his power to recover them, he Imhm an emancipationist. They know this to be untrue, .or ought to know it, if they are posted as a public journalist should be before venturing up so grave a charge. Mr. Bates not only emancipated his slaves, bat gave Ihem means' to commence the world or tbemselveii, ana one he gave a good edu cation. The above story, was started by the Cincinnati Commercial, the home organ of Senator Chase, as unscrupulous a sheet as exists in the country, and whose venom is directed against every one who stands in Chase's way. Another objection to Bates has been, that be would not give an exposition' or hia views. This quibble has been effec tually silenced by Bates' late letter Persons who indulged in the objection, were mainly those who enthusiastically supported Fremont in 1856, and express willingness to vote for him sgain, if nominated ; yet Fremont never defined his position until his nsme was urged for the Presidency ; and but a few weeks be fore his nomination by tho Republicans, he consented to accept a nomination from the Northern Know-Nothing, if tendered him. . The 8eward organs publish, wilh a gusto, the declarations and resolutions of eertain bigots, that they will not support Bates, if nominsted. As far as we are conversant with the sentiments of Bates' Free State friends, they harbor no such stubborn selfishness. They think the Chicsgo Convention will be composed mainly of men of sense, who will make euch a nomination as, in their judgment, they deem best for the country, and for the success of the party. To such a de cision they will yield, and will hold all who do not, as doubtful specimens of Republicans. They do not, like the Chase and Seward men, propose to bolt if their first choice is not grsnted ; nor do they make any other threat to influ ease the action of the Convention in their favor. The wisest among the founders of the Republican party men of prudence and sagacity consider Bates the best and atrongest man the Republicans conld bring forward. Among the papers be longing to this clsss, we may mention the New York Tribune, the most exten sively read paper in the world ; the Cifl cinnati Gazette, the most widely circu lated paper between the Allegheny Moon tains and the Mississippi River ; and the St. Louis Democrat, the most influential paper west of the Mississippi. Does any body doubt their Republicanism ? We but lately saw the assertion in the Elwood Free Press, that the nomination of Bates would paralyze the energies of the Republicans of Northern Kansas. If snch be the case, all we have to ssy is, their energies must be in a very weak condition. Bat we knew such talk is all gammon. However it may be in other Counties, it is not so in Doniphan. Ev ery genuine Republican will vote and work for the nominee, be he whom he lay. But there is a considerable float ing vote, permanently affiliated with no party, which largely holds the balance of power. This vote neither Chase nor Seward can command ; and if either of them is the Republican candidate, and Douglas that of the Democratic party, the latter will carry Doniphan County by at least 100, and probably 200 ma jority. Bates is the only prominent Op position aspirant who can hold a race with Douglas in the Far West, and in the doubtful States of Illinois, Indiana, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey: ; We are confident that the Kansas Del egates will be instructed for Seward,- and the word will go forth that be ia the first choice of the people of Kansaa. The State Convention will be packed for him; public sentiment is being msnnfactured for him ; and his strikers will resort to the bluffing and forcing process, if neces sary. Why, it is even boasted that the Secretary of the Republican State Cen tra! Committee haa constituted himself a ort 4 enwsionary, to get up a Seward ftver ia Kansas, and has nominated him elf ae a Delegate to Chicago. Bat not withstanding all these things, there are tnaay persons is Kansss who prefer awmebody eke to Seward, who think themselves just as true to the main prin ciples of Republicanism as the ones who do all tbe wire-pulling and blowing. Bat one great difference is, they do not set up the childish whine that they "won't play," if everything is not done accord ing to their notions. Another practice of the Anti-Bates Re publicans, is to sneer at the Free Labor men of Missouri, and at tbe idea of their carrying tbe State. Every decent con sideration should dictate a different course. Tbe Free Labor men of Missouri hsve established themselves and proclaim their principles in the midst of the enemy's country, where their fight has been one not only of words, but they hsve had to contend against infuriated mobs, strong prejudices in fsvor of an existing institu tion, and all manner of opposition that bigotry and self-interest could put forth. For their steadfastness under such circum stances, they are certainly entitled to a more gencroua acknowledgment than taunts and sneers, from those Republicans who are wont to sit in secure pieces, far removed from danger, and proclaim their own patriotism and devotion to principle. The great moral effect and practical ben efit that the nomination of Bates would produce in Missouri alone, if it resulted in no other salutary effect, would well repsy the nomination. There are thous ands of Free State men in Missouri, whose voices are never heard. With the exception of in a few Counties, they are unorgsnized, and are in a manner held in subjection by the Democracy. Their long residence, too, amidst the prejudices peculiar to a Slave State, has in a meas ure infused those prejudices into their minds, as fsr as regards the Republican paity. They are made to believe that the party is a'dreadfol organizstion; and the nomination of a radical Republican for President, will in nowise disabuse their minds of the error. But Bates is a citizen of their own State one of the people of Missouri himself they have known him for years, and know that he can be trusted. They cannot be persua ded that he is sn enemy to tho Constitu tion, or to any section of the country; and they will rally around him with an en thusiasm never before witnessed in the State. And when once the ice is broken, and they have dared to break through the prejddicea with which they have been surrounded and held in check, they will remain firm, perfect their organization, and at once assume throughout the State the position of a powerful party. Tbe future hope of Missouri depends in a great degree upon the nomination of Bates by the Chicago Convention ; and the selec tion of no other msn can exercise a tithe of the influence upon the State that his would produce. Tbe same species of radical Republi cans contend that no man should receive the nomination but one who lias been a straight-out Republican for four years which is intended as a barrier to those who did not support Fremont in 1856 and this, notwithstanding the terms of the call for the Convention. , If all per sons are to be proscribed, as candidatea. who did not vote the Republican ticket in 1856, it is with bnt an ill grace that the radicals csn ask the votes of tbe ssme class of persons for their candidates. Without the votes of such, they will have a happy time in electing their Pres ident. They will mske a failure as in glorious as they did with their grasshop per and mole eating adventurer, in 1856 As the radicals are so tenacious of the clsims of Republicans of long stsnding, that they will not tolerate the nomination of any other kind, we advise them to at least issue a proclamation altering the terms of the call for a Convention, as msde by the National Committee, so that outside Oppositionists msy know that their presence is not desirable in thst important body. , j ' ' v River.

Before the opening of navigation, an agent of the Railroad visited all the business men on the river, above St. Jo seph, and obtained from them a promise to patronise the packets, to the exclusion of other boats now it is the next thing to impossible to get an accommodation from the line.

I Easier. Sunday next is Easter. This dsy, as most of our readers probably know, de rived its name from Queen Esther, wife of the ancient King Ahasuems, " which reigned from India even unto Ethiopia." Tbe name Esther was vulgarized by tbe common people of that period into "Eas ter." as it is in our own day. Esther was the one who first discovered the pro cess of coloring eggs. She was a Jewess, dwelling in the land ruled by Ahasnerus. The Jews, in those days, were far more strict with regard to eating flesh, than they now are ; and the prohibition ex tended even to eggs they being consid ered unclean, in view of the msnner in which they were produced. Consequent ly, the articles were kept only as orna ments. Esther waa keeping house for her cousin Mordecai, and was one dsy engsged in coloring stocking yarn with onion peel, when an egg on the mantle tree accidentally rolled off and fell into tbe boiling liquid. She took it out, and found it to be beautifully colored ; and she broke the shell, to ascertain whether the color had struck through; but the inside looked so nice and good, that she put salt and butter on it, and ate it. When subsequent events rendered Esther a favorite with the Jewish settlers, they adopted the practice of coloring and eat ing eggs upon her birth-day, but at no other time. In those days, King Ahasnerus annu ally gave a great feast, on which occa sions his court and chambers were deco rated with hangings of various colors. At one of these feasts, Yasbti, the Queen of Ahasuems, refused to present herself, when commanded to do so by her bus band. The fsct is, she had instituted a Woman's Rights Association, the first orgsnization of the kind ever attempted. For her act of disobedience she was dis carded by Ahasnerus, and Esther chosen for his wife. This deprived Mordecai of a housekeeper; so he had handbills printed, offering at public sale his "house hold and kitchen furniture, beds and bed ding, cooking utensils, 1 wheelbarrow, 1 grindstone, 1 shot gun, 1 Bowie-knife, 1 boot-jsck, and many other articles too tedious to mention. Terms of sale all sums of 95 and under. Cash ; for sums of over 95, twelve months' time, with note and approved security." Having broken up house-keeping, he spent his time sitting at the King's gate, waiting to be invited in, and managed to worm himself into the good graces of the mon arch, by reporting conspiracies to rob the royal watermelon patch, which he heard being concocted by some of the servants. Ahasnerus and Esther were married on Easter Sunday, (Esther's birth-day,) and thenceforward the great annnal feasts were held on that anniversary ; and from that time, the hangings of various colors were dispensed with, and in their stead, color ed eggs were served np at the table. A certain wicked nobleman named Haman, had planned the murder of all the Jews in the Kingdom ; but through Esther's interposition, they were fore warned, and authorized to defend them selves. In honor of their preserver, they adopted eggs as their weapons of defence, and pelted many thousands of their as sailants to death with rotten eggs. Hence originated the practice of egging obnox ious persons. The terms "bad egg" and "good egg' also originated at that time, but not, as might be supposed, directly from the ar ticle of eggs. Haman, who was despised by the masses of the people, was, by de scent, an Agagite ; and the people, when spesking of him, abbreviated the name, and derisively called him Haman, the Ag., or the " bad Ag." The Jews con founded the name with the favorite article of their beloved Queen Esther, and called 1 mA l 1 aa 1TT1 mm me " oaa rjgg. w nen Mordecai triumphed over Haman, they called him, by way of contrast, .the "geod Egg." Thus originated the terms which have been handed down to the present dsy. Another popular phrase, " gone up," is likewise said to have had its origin in those days. Haman had a gallows built, fifty cubits high, for the especial accom modation of Mordecai ; but by some un foreseen accident, he was elevated upon it himself in fact, was remarkably "high strung." Tbe people, in speaking of this occurrence, were wont to remark that Haman had " gone up," which was lite rally true. So, in our day," when one makes a great failure, or steps out of the world, it is said that he has " gone up Other antiquarians contend that the phrase originated from a little episode ia the life of Elijah, the last time he was seen in this mundane sphere. t9 Disbelievers in "signs," counted upon a failure, this year, of tbe old sign, that when "March comes in like a Iamb, it will go out like a lion." and win rerso. The first day of March was very pleas ant, as waa the month throughout, and the last dsy began more pleasantly than its predecessors. But at noon the weath er clouded np, and gave every appearance of a thonder-storm. A heavy north wind continued throughout the day, rendering it uncomfortably cold and disagreeable. We got none of the rain, but a - mile or two to the northward they had a "right sact shower." . . The Atlantic Monthly, for April, ia at hand, containing fifteen original con tributions.

An investigating committee baa been ap: pointed to inquire into his rascalities, and he trembles in his boots. It was not pro posed to bring him before the committee, nor to demand any 'explanations from him ; yet he sends in a message, telling the House it is unconstitutional for. them to examine into hie corruptions. He says be is the only immediate represen tative of the whole people of the Union, haa the legislation of Congress nnder his control, and therefore the House has no right to arraign him. We think the members of the House are the immediate Representatives of the people, and it is their business to see to the people's inter ests. But the President says unprinci pled men msy , be induced to testify against him falsely, throogh political ha tred 1 Well may he tremble, for he sees exposure coming. If be could get the Supreme Cokf) to interfere to prevent his disgrace, that body wonld be found will ing to do bis bidding; but the Court cannot serve him. ' He alternately defies, expostulates, snd supplicates. He speaks of bis grsy hairs, and the many offices he haa held ; and says, during all that time, he was never approached with a dishon orable proposition, except in a single in stance, too' insignificant to mention The hoary-headed old villain, even in his dsy of tribulation, cannot forget bis in famous slanders of Henry Clay, at which the above allusion hinta. Tie concludes by expressing the belief that the Supreme Being, who has carried him through all his past trials, will not see him wronged now. Divine interposition is all that can save him ; bnt that will hardly come to his aid now. He haa sinned away hia day of grace, and is no longer taken into Divine account. The entire message, and all the circumstances connected with it, proclaim the President a guilty and cor rupt wretch, as plainly as if he had made a full confession. His msssage ahonld only be (as it doubtless will) an incentive to Congress to push its investigations with renewed zeal, and reveal to the country corruptions and rascalities which have never been equalled since the foandation of the Government. Kaxsas Prosfects. The following items of interest to the people of Kansaa we clip from the Washington correspon dence of the Cincinnati Gazette : MIW TERRITOBIES. The Senate Committee on Territories met this morning and agreed to report bills for . the organization of Jefferson, Arizonia, Nevada and Dacotah Territo ries. ,.. ' KANSAS. They also had nnder consideration the Kanias Bill, but adjourned without de cisive action. The Democrats are afraid to Keep Ksnsss longer out, and it is probable the Committee will reluctantly report a bill for its admission under the Wyandotte Constitution. This, if ac complished, will be a great triumph, and will materially assist the Republicans in tbe next canvass. THE BOUNDARIES OF KAXSAS. - An attempt will be made in the Senate to change the line of the proposed State of Kansas from tbat defined in tbe Wy andotte Constitution, the result of whiah will be to enlarge the area of the new State so as to include settled portions of Nebraska as lar North as the Platte river. The House will resist this alteration and adhere to the boundaries selected by the people of Kansas. If the Senate insist upon enlsrging the boundaries against the will of tbe people, at the aame time depriving Nebraska of a portion of her best Territory and people, the bill for the ad mission of Kansas will be killed and the responsibility will rest with tho Sen ate. Efforts will be made by the Govern ment friends ef Kansss and Nebraska to prevent the 8enate from taking snch ac tion, especially as a large slice ef Nebras ka will be given to Pike's Peak Territory, XT" The late Territorial Legislature passed an act for the " encouragement of wool growing." The act is said to have been gotten up for the accommodation of some of our good Doniphan County De mocrats, in their operations among the free niggers on Wolf River. The prin cipal provision of the act is a prohibitioa of taxes on any part of this branch of industry. The wisdom of this will be apparent, when it is known that the Democrats in qnestiiJh are gene rally short of the " spondulicks" bnt the new law entitles them to a " free blow."

We have read of tbe " paralysis" with which Northern Kansas ia to be stricken, in ease Bates is nominated at Chicsgo, and of the enthusiasm that the nomination of Seward will create. We have been anx iously watching for symptoms, and have at length discovered a few. A short time ago, the Repnblicana of Atchison Cooaty - met in Convention, and appointed a number of sealdua Sew ard advocate as delegates to the State Convention, and clinched the thing by unanimously instructing tbe delegates in favor of Seward. Laat week the Spring elections were held, and Atchison County went overwhelmingly Democratic caus ed, saya the Champion, by the apathy (" paralysis t") of tbe Repnblicana. 'About the eame time, the Republicans of Leavenworth elected delegates to the State Convention. . The contest was be tween the SewsroHnd Anti-Seward men. Seward triumphed largely.

Porter, Sheriff of this Connty, which event occurred at Wathena, on Wednes day, March 28th, of Consumption, with which he had been for some time afflicted. Mr. Porter's age was about 29 years, and he was a nstive of Washington County, Pennsylvania, but had been in the far West for a number of years, principally in the capacity of a surveyor, and was one of the first settlers in Kansas. In October, 1857, he wss elected Treasurer of this County. In June, last, he was elected a Delegate to the Wyandotte Constitutional Convention, beingnejo ly Repablican elected from this Comity. In November Isst, he waa elected Sheriff of the County, but in consequence of de clining beslth, was enabled to give bnt very little personal attention to the duties of the office.

The St. Louis Republican, whose influ ence did more than anything else to elect Stewart, is most bitter ia its denuncia tions of him. It pronounces a maledic tion against him henceforth throngh life, to follow him to the grave.
