Sr, in this Paper tbe Lawi of
Congress r . Published by Au
Honl David R. Atchison,
It seem that an article which appearrd
in this paper, about a month . since, has
given. the . Abolitionists of Missouri and
New York, great satisfaction. We refer
to the article headed "Fa'ikity of the New
York Tribune , in, which the following
sentence occurs. . "For we confidently hope
that the last national Congress may meet
in Washington on the first Monday in De
cember next. ... , . . ., . . ,
This precious sentence, containing the
subject matter o hundreds of columns ir
the Abolition paper, which said hundred
columns, have, shaken the nerves of ten
thousand good old Ladies, till the name?
of Atchison and Stringfellow are used to
frighten the fifty thousand children of the
ten thousand respectable ladies above
named, whenever they ara naughty. This
seemed so sweet a morsel that we were
unwilling to take it from . "under the
t&ngues" of our Abolition friends till thev
had "rolled" it there sufficiently. But i
is a duty we owe ourselves, the Pro-Slave
ry party, and Gen. Atchison,. that we ex
plain how it was published as Editorial in
: The Senior Editor wag at that time at
tending the sitting of the Legislature i
hundred miles off as a member, and never
saw the article till it was, ten days old, and
urges every line he has written since he
has been connected with the"Sqatter Sov
ereign," as evidence that he entertains
no such sentiment as is found, m the sen
tence above quoted. The junior from the
sickness of the hands in the ofHce, had to
attend to the mechanical department dur
ing that wek. anl a . young gentleman
who was assisting in the office wrote the
article, and it was srt up without having
undergone that revision which it should
have received. It is proper to state, that
the gentleman who wrote the article pro
bably never saw Gen. Atchison in his
life. ' .' ."
We will say this in addition. First, we
are as much devoted to the Union as any
men should be. We will never give our
consent to its 'dissolution, till there is no
longer any chance for theSouth to receive
justice at the hands of the General Gov
ernment. But when the time arrives that
the Fanatical portion of the Free ' States
obtain such an ascendency, as to preclude
any longer the hope of fair and just legis
lation, the rights of the Southern States
no longer respected, then, and not till then,
are we prepared to cry out for instant Dis
solution. . '
' We expect to ask of the Congress which
is next to be elected, admission into the
Union as a Slave State, when we do, and
shall be refused, as is threatened, then we
are for setting at defiance the Northern
(wovirnmtTVt, and hope and believe the
whole South will be with us.
Out City is fast progressing, and more
new buildings are now going up than at
any other former period. The Ferry Boat.
Lewis Burns, brought up from Weston
seven houses already framed, and the New
Lucy put off two more. Capt. Bowman of
.the Edinburg, also brought up a House and
contracted, for its immediate erection.
Capt. Wineland of the- J. H. Lucas, . left
on the last trip of that boat, several thou
sand feet of pine lumber, designed for his
large Warehouse." In addition to all this
frame work. Mr. Bennett has contracted to
erect s6eral Brick buildings before win
ter closes in.
The Laws must be Enforced.
WeVsee there is a determination ,on the
Dart of the Abolition papers at Lawrence,
and a faction who act and think with therp,
to resist the Laws passed by our Legisla
ture. This state of affairs is to be regret
ted, and the matter should be immediately
looked into. The laws must be rigidly en
forced, and that immediately, or else anar
chy and. confusion will,, spread over the!
Territory.;! Ji 4 .
We notice in late issues of the Law
rence papers, language that cannot be mis
enstrued, and will admit of no other con
struction but of bold and daring nullifica
tion. We now call the attention of the
officers in that section of the Territory to
the matter, and reouest them to perform
heir duty. If resistance, asT is" threaten-
ed ', is made, then let a sufficient number
be summoned, though it should take every
law and order man in the Territory, and
the offenders be brought to justice. Atch
ison county pledges five hundred good and
true men, who are willing to assist in en
forcing the laws though death should over
take them in the discharge of their duty.-
Other portions of the Territory will fur
nish their quota if needed, and this rebel
lion must and will be quashed. If blood
must flowi let it run freely. Let each in
dividual proselite of the "higher law doc
trine, be singled out and brought to trial
where justice will be done, though Heaven
and the Union should fall.
Another Outrage. One of the
hirelings of the Abolition party, who has
been very busy during the past week post
ing up and distributing the free-soil call
for a second election, and also a notice for
the holding of meetings in the different
counties to frame a free State Constitution,
insulted our citizens, by attempting to put
up some of the a foresaid bills in this place.
He was "caught in the act," and a large
rolj of ; his , contraband goods taken from
him and burned before his eyes. It was
with the greatest difficulty that some of our
citizens were prevented from hanging the
rulprit ; but he was permitted to return af.
'er first denying, any knowledge of the
contents f the bills, and promising to "sin
no more. He mounted his horse, and
instead of . going to the upper part of the
Territory, as he was paid to do, h started
for home; going through Missouri, rather
than travel osi this side of tlie River and
risk himself in the hands of the indignant
Squatters of Kansas. This fellow hails
from the vicinity of Leavenworth City,
where his- masters will no doubt be indig
nant at his treatment. We think he has
cause to congratulate himself on a lucky
escape from ; a punishment hp so justly de
served. Let future emissaries beware!
forbearance is not always a virture J
ft STOur Merchants are doing a good
business just now. We notice that a large
trade trom the neighborhood of the Stran
ger and the head waters of Grasshopper
Creeks has been concentrated here, from
the fact of Atchison being the most eligi
ble point on the Missouri River for set
tlers in that neighborhood. The extent of
country back, depending upon Atchison
for supplies is as great, and probably ex
tends over seventy miles. Our Merchants
have stocks of Goods on hands . now. to
supply any and all demauds. .
Basbacce at Doniphan. The Pro
Slavery Barbacue at Doniphan, K. T.
on Saturday last was very numerously at
tended, and everything went off in good
order. Speeches were made by several
distinguished orators, who we think suc
ceeded admirably in convincing the free
soilers present, of their error, and induced
many to change their opinions. We were
glad to see so much interest manifested,
and are confident that when the returns
from that County shall come in, they will
show a tremendous majority for Gen.
Whitfield, the candidate of the Pro-Slavery
' A- B.Chaiabera. ; ..
This new Steamer arrive at oof " land
ing on Thursday last, and was visited by
numerous citizens, who" expressed their
surprise nd admiration at tbe costly and
magnificent finish " of the Gahin. The

packet, and is a perfect model of comfort,
oeatnes and elegance. Her draught is
only twenty-eight inches, and her power is
sufficient to draw Ler through .he; water,

keep in sight. Her dimensions are as
follows: hull 231 feet Ion?, beam 3-5 feet ;

commend the Chambers to our Missouri

have received a circular, from which we
learn that bur old friend Samuel A. Ringo,
late of the Liberty Female Institute, has
taken charge of this popular School. ' The
citizens of Arrow Rock may congratulate
themselves on acquiring so valuable a citi
zen, and the pupils of the college may feel
assured that they have a kind and affec
tionate teacher, who in every respect is
qualified to instruct them. We learn the
following facts from the circular:
"This Institution is located in the beau
tiful town of Arrow Rock, which is situa
ted on the bank of the Missouri river, in
the county of Saline. The College build
ings-are a short distance from the river on
a very commanding eminence. Men of

the beginning of the session they intend to
have the buildings repaired and fitted up

this w?-k ewndblyeskTjsd;. 1
Homestead Bill. ; i
We puhlifred, some weeks since, that
the Legislature of Kansas had exempted
slave property from execution. . This, we
learn, was a mistake; such a bill was pre
sented, but failed to pass. The Legisla
ture have passed 'a very liberal Homestead
Law, of which the following is a synopsis
Sec. 1. Each head of a familv shall be j
entitled to field exempt from sale or exe
cution, or other process, except for taxes,
one hundred" and sixty acres of - land, not
included in the limits of any town or city:
Pronided. That such persons, or his or her
family, shall reside on such land or lot. . .
Sr c. 5. In addition to the property ex
exempfed by the preceding section, each
head, of a family shall be entitled to bold
any personal property, rights in action,
debts er wages of the value of five hundred
dollars." ' ? '
- The 3d and 4th sections regulate, the
manner of proceedure in executions.
Sec 5. The wearing apparel and vorJc
ing fools of every person, and of every
member of his or her family, shall be ex
empt from execution or sale of uny cause
whatever., - ....
The act takes effect from its passage.
Eesisting- the President.
It seems that Judffe Elmore, who was
removed by President Pierce a few weeks
since, w determined to hold onto his office.
The Legislature of Kansas sustained the
Judge in his course, and passed the reso
lutions below, notifying the President that
they disapprove of his movement, that they
do not intend to submit to it, that be has
acted in violation of law, and tbat.it is the
duty of that body to "resist this flagrant
usurpation of power, coming from what
quarter it mav..
The President has appointed another
Judge to fill the pla"e, who it is expected
will be on soon, and as both will clam and
exercise the same pewers. it will necessa
rily bring up the question as to whether
the supreme power rests in the President
and Contrress, or the Kansas Legislature.
Be it Resolved by the Council and the
House of Representatives :
1. That the Constitution of the United
States, and the spirit and genius of our
Government, contmplatetht the Judicia
ry shall be and is free and ind pendent of
the control and supervision of the President
or the appointing rower.
2. That the act known as the Nebraska
and Kansas bill, approved the 30th Mav.
1854." clearly defines the tenure of the of
fice of the Judges of. the Supreme Court of
the Territory of Kansas for the period of
four years, and until their successors shall
be appointed and qualified.
3. That the tenure of office of Judges
being thus fixed by law, tbe President has
not had the power or the right to remove
at his will or pleasure, and that an attempt
so to go is. in tne opinion oi mis juegisia-
