We have jnst received the following
despatch from Leavenworth. Lane hesi
tates at nothing. He sees his doom, and
as a lut deperate resort, be appeala to
military force, the machinery of which
.he has had carefully arranged to his
band. While Gen. Lee is off fighting
the battles of his country, a corrnpt mil
itary commander attempts to elect the
thief, Sid. Clarke, aid perpetuate the
infamous power of Lane, by military
force. The result will either be, that the
people of Leavenworth, in their indigna
tion, will give an almost unanimous vote
against the Lane ticket, or, under milita
ry protection, fraud will have full away.
The rebels in Canada and the Laneites
in Kansas are resorting to the same dee
perate means to retrieve tbeir mined for
tunes. People of Doniphan, redouble
your efforts, and make op for what your
friends in Leavenworth lose throogn this

Sol. Miixie: The city was startled, thia
afternson, by tha issuing of an order from
Gen. Davies, Post and Disirict Commander,
and blood relation of Gen. James H. Lane,
declaring, in snbstancc, martiaj lw, and rero
king every "arbitrary" order heretofore issued
by all of Gen. Daries' predecessors. The in
tent of the or Jer ia simply to intimidate and
overawe the citizens, and is held universally
to be a direct blow at every civil right and
duty. Tbo most intense indignation exists.
and the people are resolved that the outrage
shall be rebuked and exposed by a united vote
against the Crawford and Clarke ticket, whose
interests the infamous and illegal order was
merely issued to promote.
Sec'y Republican State Central Committee.
'A Fbee Ballot" Tho country is
obtaining some idea of the "free ballot"
spoken of in the Chicage Convention.
The most astounding frauds in soldiers'
votes for New York have been discover
ed, in which high Copperhead officials,
civil and military, are implicated. New
York soldiers place ther ballots in sealed
envelopes, endorse their names on them,
and send them home. These have been
opened, Lincoln tickets abstracted, and
McClellan and Seymour tickets in
aerted in their stead. Thonssnds of votes
of deceased soldiers, and of men who
have never been soldiers, have been aeal
ed up and transmitted; but tbe fraud waa
discovered in time to prevent its consum
mation. Two person have been sentenced
to imprisonment for life, for their part in
the business, and othera will follow snit.
Persons who were convicted, state that
Gov. Seymour, Peter Cagger, and other
prominent politicans. were engaged in
the fraud; bnt tbe business was detected
before they were in such a position as to
be convicted.
Lisa Missionaries. Lane has em
ployed a corpB of foreign missionaries to
tell the people of Kansas how to vote,
and to stigmatize every man as a Cop
perhead whose stomsch is not strong

Major Heath, C.f Iowa, who is holding an
important military position, which he is
neglecting, to do Lane's dirty work.
There is Hawkins Tayicr, of lwa. Mail
Agent, who is distributing Lane Ii!'r
ture.-and concocting plans to defraud our
people, while we have the next thing to
no mail facilities at all. There is Rev.
Dr. King, of Colorado, who haa a win
ning way with him that causes him to be
kicked out of every community in which
he attempts to reside. The people of
Kansas are supposed to be benighted
fools, who should be thankfnl for sdvice

Sionor Acastki. This celebrated wit
zard held forth in thia place, tbe present
week, to a large and delighted audience.
He is possessed of nnusual skill in the
magical art, and his feats of legerdemain
decidedly eclipse those of the magicians
who usually travel the country. The
Signor ia making a short tour through a
portion of the conntry, preparatory to
locating for a season at St. Joseph, where
he will give exhibitions, in connection
with other attractions, during the coming
JOT We understand that Capt. Dillon
contends that he is not a Lane man.
Why, then, is he circulating tbe Lane
ticket, containing the name of Col.
Moonlight for Elector.against Mr. Parrott,
the only effect of which will be to divide
the Lincoln vote ? That is tbe test Lane
applies to all his followers, and Capt.
Dillon gnlps it down without a grunt,
BW The National Convention of War
Democrats, just held at New York, re
solved to support Lineoln and Johnson,
aad to fight nntil tbe rebels were con
quered. Who will be left to support
McClellan r and where will be git any
Electoral votee ? o ' "
" Do "Ditto Otmi," Etc-. Laae la
still whining far hie reward for servicee
to the Free Stat canes. How has he
set the example, by rewarding others for
their services ? He is causing tbeir re
moval from office almost every week, and
has tried to rnia almost every prominent
Free State asaa of tha dark daya of Haa
ss. Take, for example, Gov. Robinson,
Gen. Deitxlsr, and Gains Jenkins. These
mea were takes prisoners by tbe BdraW
Ruffians at Lawrence, and confined at
Lecampton. Lane, aa usual, happened
to be ont of the way ; and while these
men were wallowing in prison vermin,
Laae wasgadding through the East,
boastiog of his exploits. We know this,
for we saw and hard him. His subse
quent treatment of these men, shows him
to be undeserving of any confidence or
sapport from Free State men. He bit
terly opposed Gov. Robinson's Admin
istration, cansing it to be almost a fail
ure ; denounced Robinson a a Copper
head, and. .endeavored to have him im
peached for a crime of which Lane him
self was guilty. He censed Deitaler to
be removed from an office to which he
had been appointed for services in the
eanse of liberty ; and prevented Deitaler
from being promoted to a Brigadier Gen
eralship for meritoriona services, while
man were made Brigadiers who bad ren
dered no service ; and has caused Deilz-
ler to be systematically abused and elan-
dered to tbe present day. And Gains
Jenkins he murdered in cold blood, be
cause he would not aubmit to being rob
bed. Such a man to claim reward for
services to the Free State cause 1
The "Friends op Lincoln." The
Lane strikers, who claim to be tbe only
friends of Lincoln in Kansas, .seem deter
mined to do all in their power to lose
him an Electoral vote. They opposed
Col. Cloud to Mr. Parrott nntil Mr.
Chesebrongh died, and tbe Anti-Lane
party accepted Clond, for the sske of
harmony. But this did not satisfy the
Laneites. They are resolved to support
no man who does not belong to Lane.
Their leading papers, by and with tbe
advice and consent of Lane and Sid.
Gierke, have rnn np tbe name of Col.
Moonlight for Elector, thus still beeping
four candidatca in the field. He will re
ceive bnt few votes; but the circumstance
shows what the Laneites would be guilty
of, if it were in their power. Can hon
est men any longer doubt that Lane and
his tools would send the conntry to de
struction, rather than witness the success
of any man who refuses to be a slave to
the Prince of Demagogue T
t3T It is ssid that Col. C. W. Blair,
of the Kansas 14th, haa crawled in the
dirt at Lane's feet. He made a speech at
Fort Scott, the other day, in which he
aaid that Lane had saved Kansas from
Price's army, and that the people ought
to support his State ticket. For this
dirty work, he has been promised a Brig
adier's commission. Last Winter, when
he was an honorable supplicant for a
Colonel's commission, he was particu
larly vicious against Lane. He sub
scribed for tbe Chief, because he ssid he
liked the way in which it pitched into
Lane! A son-in-law of Sam. Medary,
anyi a follower of Jim Lane 1 How
mnch u101 could he bear, and not hang
himself for very shame 1
jar A person,- wn ne"d 'i relates a
hot discussion whleb took pl" between
some citizens of Kansas OUj, relative to
whom credit was due for savi "at Place
from Price's army. On party contend
ed that Jim Lane bad saved them, ft"ile
others insisted that it was Gov. Carney.
Such miserable pukes deserve to be con
scripted aa boot-blacks and cooks for
Price's army during the war. To sit
shivering and shaking, and permit Price'a
army to travel through the centre of tbe
State, without opposition, and then get
into a quarrel over the question as to
whst citizen of Kansas saved them from
destruction !

Pleasanton. Immediately after tha de
feat of Price, near Waetport, Gea. Plea
santon expressed hie coaUmpt for Lane,
aad a hope that tbe people of Kansaa
wonld beat him. The Laae press imme
diately affected great indignation that
Pleasaoton should have any credit for
saving Kansas, and attempted to hammer
that idea into the minds of the people.
Bnt it failed the people of Kansss were
there, and saw for tbemselvee what Plea
santon had done; aad hie opinion. of
Lane, which so coincided with theirs,
was having a dsaasging effect. Some
thing must be done to counteract it. As
soon aa it was ascertained that Pleasan
ton was out of reach of Kansas, and
would probably not retnrn. Lane bad one
of bis hired scribblers forge a letter, ma
king Pleasanton express the highest re
gard for Lane, and tender his thanks -for
valuable servicee rendered by him, in the
pursuit. 'Lane has 'had this published,
to deceive tbe people. It it, a baae for
gery, and bears evidence of it in its very
style and tone ; and Pleasanton wiU'puIl
Lane's nose for it, the very first opportu
nity that offers.
Ghawino a Filb. The Lanopapera
are engaged in an op-bill bueinese, when
they attempt to make capital against
Gov. Carney, in connection with tbe re
cent invasion. We have heard probably
abundred express themselves, and all have
spoken in the very highest terme of Car
ney's conduct. Some men, who have not
had a good word for any other peraon
connected with the operationa, speak fa
vorably of tbe Governor. They eay he
was constantly at work to secure tbe
comfort of the men. and to so dispose of
them as to be of the most service ; and
tbey are indebted to bim for many favors
and comforta which they could not have
enjoyed, had he not, by the most labori
ous exertions, secured tbem. It will not
do to slander the Governor to tbe men
who were there and aaw, except it be a
few abject toola of Lane, who deserted the
moment they found that old Satan was
not running the machine.
tW John Speer, being rqnarely ranght
in tbe attempt to divide the Lincoln
vote, creeps out by
that there
will be 15,000 votes cast in Kansas, of
which McClellan cannot pos'ihly get
more than 3 000. and that a division of
the remaining 12 000 between two men
cannot possibly elect a McClellan man.
So they have been forced to admit tbe
truth of the Anti-Lane position, to clear
themselves. We have been telling them
that McClellan had no" show in Kansaa ;
that Lane's pretence of stomping for Lin
coin and John'on was all humbug ; and
that their howls against the Anti-Lane
party were intended to deceive the people,
They have now abandoned their only
hobby, and it now remains for tbem to
come up and vote the Anti-Lane ticket
like men.
tW An attempt haa been made to
lessen Mr. Ingalla' vote in the Northern
Tier, by referring 'to his position on the
Railroad queation. It might work, were
it not that McGrw, his opponent, is in
a far worse predicament on tbe same ques
tion. That qneation was a matter of di
rect home interest with Ingalls, while it
did not concern MeGrew in the least; yet
tbe laiter, in 1862, made a direct issue
against the Hendwson Amendment, wss
elected on thst issue, carried his Connty
for Ingalls on that issue, and in the Leg-

thi8 ening, to have been present nt tha
State Convention at iopekn. as I wonld
have pushed through. I asked leave of
absence under orders which make it a
privilege, under the act of Congress, bnt
was refined, although relioved ol my
command and on no duty.
Yon recollect I declined leave formerly
tendered to me nnder circumstances in
which I did not feel I could honorably
accept. I ben I would have been taken
from a command that needed mo. Now,
I was refused, when on do duty.
should like t have met Jamet B
Lane fate to face before the people of our
State, bnt Gd in his infinite Providence
knows what is for the hst.
Let me hopfljh,t wjdotn and self-de,-ntal
will RUiife trie connel of thote who
have the purification of the State in tbeir
hands. 1 hope God in his wisdom will
guide you.
I shall send an address for publication
in the papers. I am for Lincoln and
Johnson, against Lane and his minions.
and for tbe stern purification of the State.
Very Respectfully.
