We karn. just as u e go to press, from a gen tleman living at Leavenworth, that Reeder refused to give certificates to four of the coimeilmcn and thirteen members of the house. He has ordered an election to fill their places, on the 22nd of May. lie La issued a proclamation to that effect. This infamous scoundrel will have to be icvf yet. lirunawicker. That will do pretty well, Mr. Brims wicker, but we would suggest to Messrs. "Atchison, Stringfellow &, Co." to gather up tlieir "minute men," and wait on Gov ernor Reeder, and, his beautiful endorser the editor of- the Herald of Freedom, and introduce them to a slight coat of tar and fv-adiers and then escort them over to Iowa 1 y the fascinating tunc of the "Rogues Tdurch." Warrensburg .Vruv?. ESiSWe wish the Tribune would not place us in a position which we do not now, never did nor never will occupy that of defending illegal elections. Ardently as we desire an Assembly of Free State men, we would tenfold rather have it pro slavery than to resort to falsehood and fraud. As Vet neither paity is inno cent; but it is to lie hoped that in future all truo friends of freedom will prove them selves above those dishonest artifices, of which all are to some extent . guilty.

Crashed Oat. Our people enforced the principles of the Maine law last night, and "crushed out two petty grog shops which had made their appearance among us during the past few weeks. "Down with the liquor traffic" was the universal response.

It is a curious coincidence, that the resent year, 1S55, the days of the week, and date of the month, as well as the dom ical letter, and all the moveable feasts of the year, are correspondent exactly to those of 1S19; so that frugal Mrs. Toodlcs, who We saved their old almanacs, need not go to the expetise of buying new ojies. From the St. Louis Republican,- : "Slave Life in Europe." : It fe at least a striking if not a. gratify ing fact, that the silly slandera and ma udein philanthropy of American Abolitionism was finally rebuked, and the tide of un heal thful public opinion produced by Mrs. Harriett Beecher Stowes book, turned in G ermany. For, without wishing to be se vere, it is but justice to say, that all works of fiction hitherto produced in , this country tending to counteract the pernicious ten dencies of "Uncle Tom's Cabin," were be low mediocrity gotten up on the spur of the moment, and intended for a run mere ly on the Western steamboats. But novel just published in Germany, from the pen of the German "Boz," Mr. Hacklaen- der, an author equally distinguished as a dramatist and a writer of .fiction, (now be ing republished in the literary department of the .Inzeiger, in this city,) it would seem, has laid Mrs. Stowe and her book completely on the shelf.-- Judging solely from theopinioris of the British press, and the synopsis of the work thus afforded lis, Hacklaender'a "Slart Lift in Eurojty is the most powerful novel, not only ever pro produced in Germany,-but surpassing in interest, descriptive force of subject, all similar works of the day. Its reception in Germany was unprecedented, and not withstanding the unusually high price put on the book t (S4 50, we believe,) its se cond edition is now being issued from the press, an almost incredibly large first edi tion having been exhausted in the course of a few months. The book, withal, seems less intended for one connective nar rative turning into one great plot, than for a succession of striking tableau, illustra tive of European society in all phases and grades, from royalty down to abjectest pau perism, harmonized into a whole, by the history of a few principal characters, and the general objects of the novel. Uncle Tom's Cabin and its illustrations of "Slave Lite in 'America," form evidently the inducement to the work, and are constantly introduced fin comparison. The German author'. skill herein is represented in comparable; and the cheap philanthropy of Abolitionism and the sickly, vaporings of Mrs. Stowe and her European com peers, including the Duches3 of Suther land and her suite, are laid utterly pros trate. The comparisons, finally, which it is left for the reader to make between white slaves in Europe and black slaves in Amer ica, are resistlessly tending to silence the fanatical ebullitions of those pious fanat ics and would-be woild-revolutionizers who, deaf to the voices of srpialid misery and wretchedness around them, would extend their far-reaching benevolence, mainly con sisting in a "sympathetic tear," across the ocean be it either from sinister motives of their own, or from an amiable weakness of confining iheir trade in philaniropy to the cheapest article in the market. ' From the great compass of the book, and the difficulty of rendering such a work iutothe English, it is hard to say how soon a translation will render it accessible to the American public; but from an intimation which we have lately had, there is reason to suppose that arrangements may shortly be effected for a translation, by a gentle man of our city; who is well known for eminent literary ability, to do the subject full justice. From all we have seen or heard of the work, an able translation of it will, we are sure, meet with a degree ofsucces3 second not even to Uncle Tom itself. JKSThe Grand River Chronicle states that Holt. S. Mitchell, while digging a well on his premises in Utka, Mo., found considerable rich copper ore. The ore was found 14 feet below the surface.
