and there they report a Lane majority of
nearly 1,000 The Anti-Lane regiments,
such aa'tha lOtb.'lltb, 7tb, 8th, and 5tb,
we presume, hsve not bad an opportunity
to vote, or. but very few of them. We
think that tbe"wboleLane ticket, from
Clark and Crawford down to Safiord and
Brumbaugh, is successful.
As to the Legislature, we cull it de-

disappointed in this calculation, we shall
bear it with humility. "We know that
nearly everybody claimed not to be Lane
men. Members were elected "against the
Fraud;" "opposed to Lane and Carney
both, but of the two would take Lane;"
and upon every othor conceivable pledge.
Can anybody tell us of a single anch can
didate1 for whom the Lane men did not
pitch in and vote for to a man ? All
eucb,- with hut very few, if any, L excep
tions, will go for Lane atraight along,
and be the most zealous in his support.
He knows his men, and appears to be sat
isfied Were he not, he would not be
taking things so coolly as he is, but would

warta it and we believe he does.
If the .Btata.can stand Lane's rule for
another six years, she can stand anything;

responsibility of Price's escape npon Gen.

operate with Curtis, and head off Price.
The Conservative intimates that Thayer

A Goaty Mam Im at Hrn.
Some one baa aaid that no nation can
be truly great, that hu not Godly rulers.
As that portion of our nation known as
Kauai, has just decided, by the vote of
her people, that she will have Jim Lane
for her Senator, Member of Congress,
Governor, Legislature, and Supreme
Court, thus making him emphatically
and exclusively her ruler, w must en
deavor to determine to what degree of
greatness she has thereby attained, by
calculating the probable amount of God
liness possessed by said ruler. We be
lieve the Twelve Commandments and the
Golden Rule embrace everything calcula
ted to make men Godly ; therefore, we
must ascertain how near he comes to fill
ing their requirements.
1. "Thon shalt have no other Gods
before me."
Jim .Lane haa set himself up as a God.
2. Thou shalt not bow down to gra
ven images."
Power and Lust are what Jim Lane
worships. .
3. " Thou shalt not take the name o f
the Lord thy God in vain."
Let those tell -who have ever heard
Lane make a speech, or talk when angry.
4. " Remember the Sabbath day, to
keep it holy."
Does Lane ever consider the day, when
he wishes to gratify his lust, or engage in
political rascality ?
5. " Honor thy father and thy moth
A man who falsifies tha history of his
father .and mother, in order to es
tablish untrnths, cannot bo said to honor
them thereby.
6. "Thou shalt not kill."
Ask the widow and orphans of Gains
7. "Thou shalt not commit adul
tery." Ask squaws, wenches, prostitutes, and
loose women of every age, nation and
color, whose name is legion.
7. "Thon shalt not steal."
Remember Osceola. "I send yon
8900 in gold, and some dust. Do not
let any one know yon have it; you might
be robbed I"
9. "Thon abalt not bear false witness
against thy neighbor."
Ask Gov. Robinson, Gov. Carney, or
any other public man who has incurred
his enmity,

Ah Elemsst Not Calculate).
The Anti-Lane party, in the late canvass,
felt confident of success. Calculating up
on the legitimate voters of Kansas, they
had pretty good grounds for their hope;
but there was an element which they left
out of the count altogether. There are
now in Kansas, probably six or seven
thousand refugeea from Missouri and
Arkansas, who have bean straggling in
during the past three years aud a half,
nearly all whom have been in the State
long enough to acquire a residence, al
though not intending to make this State
tbair permanent residence. The perse
cuted Unionists of Tennessee removed
their families into caverns and mountain
fastnesses, then shouldered their guns and
aided in rescuing their homes from tha
rebels. , Not so with these Missouri and
Arkansas refugeea. They clung to their
hills and ravines until their homes were
burned over their heads, their crop des
t roved, their stock run off, and them
selvea fairly kicked out, yet lacked the
energy and courage to fight for self-protection.
When Kansas troops went to
their rescue, instead of joining and as
sisting in the fight, they sought refuge un
der escorts of Kansas tropps, in our
State. They had heard tell of a wonder
ful being named Jim Lane. Here they
saw him. and were captivated by bis
wonderful eloquence, as tho ignorant and
low-minded always are. More than
that, they heard him tell how he was in
favor of marching into Missouri and
making up the losses of Union men out
of rebel property. Yes, they heard Lane
tell, with his own lips, how they should
go down and steal what they had lacked
the manhood to fight for. While Kan
sas boys were fighting their battles, they
might steal to make up for their losses,
and live at their ease. The consequence
was, these refngees, almost to a man,
voted tho Lane ticket and they are not
all Union men, by a long shot. But
wherever thsie refugees are found, there
you will find that tho Lane ticket carried
the day.
Two Sncs to it. The Leas papers
are making aa ado over the fact that La
compton, the Border Ruffian Capital,
gave an Anti-Lane majority. They for
get to state that nearly all its Border
Ruffians, who had not bees compelled to
qnit the State, had removed to Lawrence,
since which event that city has gone for
Lane. We refer them, also, to Iowa
Point, in this Oonnty, tsjjKonaer head
quarters of Border Ruffianism in Northern
Kansas, when a Free State man was
scarcely permitted to live, and where, only
four years ago. Republicans were mobbed
by a gang of ruffians under Lane's pet,
Rafus R. Edwards. At the recent, elec
tion the vote was almost unanimous for
the Lane ticket. So with Doniphan,
'where they used to murder a Free State
man every morning before breakfast, and
where, ever since the war began, the
Pro-Slavery party htld the majority.
Last week, that town also went almost
unanimously Lane. White Cloud, High
land and Elwood, formerly reliable Free
State town, gave large Anti-Lane ma
jorities; while Wathena,- where me fro-
Slaveryilee of WashingtonTowhship used
to concentrate on election days, was, on
tho 8ih, the rallying-point of the Lane
party of that Township. We might
likewise refer to Marshall Connty; but the
above instances are sufficient to show
that this nnestion. like' all others, has
two sides to it.

Little Candidates. The Democracy
are unfortunate with ljttle men. As snre
as they trot ont a Presidential candidate
I whom hia followers delight to denomi
nate "Little," so snre is he of being de
feated. In 1810, they put up "Little
Tan," and he was beaten. In 1860,
"Little Dog" was on the track, and he
failed. This year they trotted out "Lit
tle Mac," and his melancholy fate ia yet
fresh in the minds of all. Their success
ful candidates, Jackson, Polk, Pierce and
Buchanan, were none of them called "Lit
tle," yet the last two named were precious
little, after all. The Democracy should
beware of little men.
Another Version. Since our last is
sue, we have conversed with a number of
reliable Anti-Lane men from Brown
Connty, who have informed us that we
wera not altogether correct in attributing
the whole cause of the defeat of the Legis
lative ticket to Qnthrie. As we will not
intentionally do any man injastice, we
will give their version of the matter. A
person who was extrornely obnoxious to
a large number of the voters, in conse
quence of having been uu inveterate office-
seeker ever since his residence in the
County, and for other reasons not neces
sary to state, had managed' to secure i
sort of nomination for the Senate, and it
soon became evident that be would fail
to reeceive a large portion of his party
vote. A very popular man then came
out as the Lane" candidate, and it was
quite evident that he wonld be elected.
Guthrie, in the hope of securing the sup
port of the disaffected, and of receiving
a large vote from the Lana party, espe
cially in the neighborhood of the Lane
candidate, whare he had many friends,
came out aa an independent. Final
ly an arrangement was made for both to
withdraw, but too late to benefit tho new
candidate, who, although a good man,
was a comparative stranger in the District.
By this mismanagement, the party was
discouraged and disorganized, and thus
the entire ticket went by default.

the continued and rapid increase of
business in our town. The streets are
daily almost blocked with teams. One

11 full of businees, together with a drug
store and confectionery. Besides, our

ly sympathize with the woinded ar.d the be
reaved, we hare cause to congratulate our
sclrca that our casualties arc so light, and al
so, that the threatened invasion is uot entirely
without compensating benefits.
It has developed the military spirit of our
people, and inspired full couSJencc in our
prowess and ability to successfully defend the
State it has given arms and equipments com
plete to nearly every nan in Kjnstt, and to-day
we can lafely boast that we have a better mi
litia establishment than any .State in the Uni
on. The enemy is not ignorant of these f ict,
and it is cnnfiJently believed, he will notngin
ventu-e an attempt to overrun Kanas. It is
gratifying toobserve, too, that large portions
of two classes of notorious and peace distuib
ing characters bushwhackers, and the wires
and families of rebel officers and Foldiers, hive
accotnpaniel Price to Texas. The rcmovil of
so large a number of rebel women, whose in
flitcnce was vastly more perniciom than tint of
twic the same number of mer, will teid to
Ie-sen tfic dinger of another inraMi n, Confed
crate soldiers harirg no longer the inducement
to make annual risits to their families in Missouri.
Tho expenses incurred by the cimpaign,
though amounting o millions in the aggregate,
will not prove a heavy burthen on the State
By direction of Major-General Curtis, to whose
kind co-operaticn and well diiccted energy in
furnishing arms aud other supplies, without
which our efforts would nece3irily have been
feeble, we should cheerfully accord a full mea
sure of our triumphant success, the General
Government will assume the largest item of
expense, such as subsistence, forage, fuel and
transportation; and it is mire than probable
that tha General Government will reimburse
the State for the pay proper of the militia.
