Both parties were badly cut, and we are happy to state that the freesoiler is in a fair way to "peg out," while the pro-slavery man is out, and ready for another " tilt." Kansas is a hard road for CreesoileTs to travel. . '. . CST The freesoilers of Doniphan at tempted to hold a barbacue on Saturday last.

H Kansas Lands. The Weshington Correspondent of the St. Louis Republican, writing on the 2oth August, says: A great anxiety is felt relative to the probable time when the Kansas lands will be thrown into market. I have ascertain ed at the General Land OfnVe, that so far as that office is concerned, these lands will be offered for sale, and will be open to lo cation within the uext twelve months. The time, however, depends in a measure . on the action of the Indian Bureau, as there are yet outstanding Indian titles to be ex tinguished. It may be safely calculated that some time during the next year the holder of certificates can appropriate to his own use and benefit a portion of these fine lands, which brought into such extrava gant play Gov. Reeder's speculative pro pensities. The charming Half-breed Kaw lands may yet fall to the share of the "bor der ruffians," should they be ready with legal certificates to pounce upon them at the first opening of the General Land Of fice. I would advise them to keep a sharp look out for the occasion, of the near ap proach of which I shall try and keep you advised. 3?New Bedford, Mass., is represent ted to be the richest city in this country according to population.

ROSWELL. s?pt 14th, 1S55. 'S-tf BY ACTnORITY. By the President of the United States of America. A PROCLAMATION. Whereas a Treaty, between the United States of America and the Argentine Confederation, was concluded and signed by their respective plenipotentiaries, at San Jose de Flores, on the tenth day of July, eighteen hundred and fifty three ; which treaty, being in the English and Spanish languages, is, word for word, as fol lows: Treaty for the Free Navigation of the Rivers Parana and Uruguay, between the United States and Argentine Confederation. The President of the United States and his Excellency the Provisional Director of the Argentine Confederation, being desirous of strengtnening the bonds of friendship which so happily subsist between their respective States and countries, and convinced that the surest means of arriving at this result is to take in con cert all the measures requisite for facilitating and developing commercial relations, have re solved to determine by treaty the conditions of the free navigation of the rivers Parana and Uruguay, and thus to remove the obstacles which have hitherto impeded this navigation. With this object they have named as their plenipotentiaries, that is to say the President of the United States, Robert C. Schenck, envoy extraordinary and minister plenipotentiary of the United States to Brazil, and John S. Pen dleton, charge d'affaires of the United States to the Argentine Confederation ; and his Ex cellency the Provisional Director of the Ar gentine Republic, Doctor Don Salvador Maria del Carril, and Doctor Don Jose Benjamin Gor ostiaga; who,, after having communicated to each other their full powers, found in good and due form, have agreed upon the following arti cles: Article i. The Argentine Confederation, in the exercise of her sovereign right, concedes the free navigation of the rivers Parana and Uruguay, wherever they may belong to her, to the inerchaut vessels of alt nations, Bubjectonly to the conditions which this treaty establishes, and to the regulations sanctioned, or which may hereafter be sanctioned, by the national authority of the Confederation. Article ii. Consequently, the said vessels shall be admitted to remain, load, and unload in the places and ports of the Confederation which the open for that purpose. Article hi. rhe Govenment of the Argen tine Confederation, being desirous to provide every facility for interior navigation, agrees to maintain beacons and marks pointing. out the channels. ' Article iv. A uniform system shall be es tablished by the competent authorities of the Confederation, for the collection of the custom house duties, harbor, lights, police, and pilot age dues, along the whole course of the waters which belong to the Confederation. Article v. The high contracting parties,' considering that the island of Martin Garcia may, from its position, embarrass and impede the navigation of the confluents of the river Plate, agree to use their influence to prevent the possession of the said is!andfrom being retain ed or held by any State of the river Plate, or its confluents which shall not have given its adhesion to the principle of free navigation. t Article vi. If it should happen (which God forbid) that war should break out between any of the States, Republics, or Provinces of the river Plate or its confluents, the navigation of the rivers Parana and Uruguay shall remain free to the merchant flag of all nations, excep ting in what may relate to munitions of war, such as arms of all kinds, gunpowder, lead, and cannon balls. . Article vii. Power is expressly reserved to his Majesty the Emperor of Brazil, and the Governments of Bolivia, Paraguay, and the Ori ental State of Uruguay, to become parties to the present treaty, in case they should be dis posed to apply its principles to the parts of the rivers Parana, Paraguay, and Uruguay, over W htst resPecve'T possess fluvial Article viii. The principal objects for which the rivers Parana and Uruguay are de clared free to the commerce of the world, be ing to extend the mercantile relations of the countries which' border them, and to promote immigration, it is hereby agreed that to favor or immunity shall be granted to the flag or trade of any other nation which shall not equally extend to those of the United States. Article ix. The present treaty shall be ratified on the part of the Government of the United States within fifteen months from its date, and within two days by his Excellency the Provisional Director of the Argentine Con federation, who shall present it to the first leg islative Congress of the Conf edration, for their approbation. J - : The ratifications shall be exchanged at the seat of Government of the" Argentine Confed- ' cxation,' within the tera of eigVeoa occths- - la witness whereof the renctir nlenfooten- ti&ries, have signed this treaty, and taxed there to their seals.- - -r - Roa'x C Schskck, . seal.
