Wherever his roving dis position may lead him, his heart ever yYarns for the land of his birth, and pul sates with pride when the name of his Slate is called. In regard to our young friends, we hope that the many advantages which our town wiil inevitably afford them duiir;g the en saing season, may prove a sufficient in Uiiwemert to .bring- them back to Kansas, and we sliali be delighted to. greet them especially if they are accompanied by au oal number of the fair daughters of Vir ginia, to whom we gladly recommend them as gcod bcyt, who are "sovnd cn the gecsc."

Esitoss: Allow me through the columns of your valuable paper, to lay before your many intelligent readers v some very important end startling facts in relation to a subject in which the South, and I may say the whole nation is deenlv interested. But before proceeding farther permit me to sayr it is, not lor the purpose; of gaining for myself any newspaper notoriety that I have been induced to publish to the-world the midnight treasons of a party with which 1 reCTet to SS.V I hav. nrid. alas! too long. " Yet in leaving that party and ma king tlie exposition I do of so many of its leading members, I am not ignorant of the hanger to which I hazard not only my life, but also my 'character ; for I know that oom will t-e violently assailed. Hut re gardless of the danger that surrounds me, I will come out unmasked, as is the duty of every good citizen, let the result be what it will, and show to the nation the midnight wire-working the treasonable actions of an abolition faction whose trick ery, if cot stopped, will evidently plunge the country in civil war, and from the hills of Kansas which now ; look so verdant and beautiful, shall plow torrents of human gore., Yes, Americans shall , be arrayed against Americans in this beautiful land ; here shall the ; bonds of the Union be sev ered, and here yili liberty be destroyed. Anarchy shall follow, and out ot confusion and the smoking ruins of our liberties shall spring that abominable thing, an unlimited Monarchy. T hese are not fancy sketches ; they orig inated in my mind by calm reason, and were nursed and brought to maturity by Ion": observation and much intercourse with this evil designing party. A parly with which I connected myself, not for tonor or emolument, but through sympathy because I thought the rights of the peoph .vere involved, and the laws violated by the citizens of Missouri (only) and because 1 ielt I could eudoi'se the sentiments of the Free State party, who held out the idea to ne that they were for prohibiting the ad nission of negroes, bond ox free, into the Teriitory, that they endorsed the Fugitive !lave Law, . the Kansas and; Nebraska Bill,-and that they would only. take honor able steps to carry out their principles. Such patriotic principles I felt were, in per ect accordance with my own private views; I felt I could unite with such a nartv. and abor assiduou&ly in such a cause. I did unite with them, I felt I was embaiked in a good cause, and God knows I was to hem a "good and faithful servant." I rode night and day, neglected my own pri ate business for what I thought the puL- ic good. Little dreaming that I was at that time strengthening and spreading the causit of that damnable faction, th Aboli tion party whose neiro love far exceeds their love of liberty or love of country. But I do not wish to be understood as branding as abolitionists all who are con nectod with this party, nor all who are members of the secret organization to whicl. I did belong ; for I am personally acquain ted with many who are members of both. who are as good citizens as any in the land, and many of whom I believe will en dorse my conduct in making the exposition I do. Many of them I believe are ignor ant ot tne net wotic in wnicn tnev are aught, and of the manner in which they are entangled. They are not aware, per haps, that they are bound under a solemn obligation,, as soon as an abolition faction shall call, on them, to forsake their famihe and ail that is dear to them, and march to the field, rifle in hand, to she3 the blood o their countrymen; yet this, though strauge is all a matter of fact, as I shall prove to t ae satisfaction of ell unprejudiced minds. (n order to do this it is necessary for me to give a history of the manner in which ,1 became a member of the secret organiza tioii called, or rather named, the "Territo -ial Gruiid Encampment and Regiments of the Kansas Legion." There was a meeting of the Free State party held at the house of A. Larzelere on the 25th of August, for the purpose oi sending delegates to the Territorial Con vention, to be held at Big Springs, K. T. on the 5th of Sept. There were fifteen delegates sent, only ten of . went to the Convention. I was one among the tei who attended. I was sent at the reque;- of several of the delegatesa few days ahead of the ethers, in order to inquire into the state of the party, as well as to have som printing done. . . When I arrived at a place called Ocena,in Atchison count), I stopped to inquire the - way to Lawrence. I soon fo lttd I had dropped into the house of one of our party. ... A conversation sprung up between us in which I took a very impor tant part, and denounced in very harsh terms the people of Mitjsoari on account of their conduct at the spring election. I showed our resolutions to the gentle man with whom I was conversing (a Mr. Crosby) who, after perusing them, went into a private apartment and bade me fol low ; he told me in a whisper that they had an organization' which served very much to strengthen our party, and wi.'h which he would make me acquainted ; without re ceiving an answer from me, he bade me bold up my hand and take' the obligation with him. . This I did ; he then gave me two books, which he told me were the Hit ual and Constitution of the order, which hf riiJ m to tak to Grnsshonnpf Palis 1 and CTsra&izc society there. Tills I as sented to and did, without looking at the books, only at the obligation, which I was bound to do, to organize the society. I or ganized the society there, and gave up the books. I then went on my way to Law- i . . r.i ..xt 2 rence, ana went to tne omce oi ine---jicr-ald of Freedom," where I was directed by nearly all the Free Soilers on my way, on account of its editors being so perfect in the faith. - I went, to Mr. Brown's office and introduced myself, showing him the pro ceedings of our meeting, which he com mented on in a rery criticising way,- say ing we had done very .wrong by adopting some of our resolutions, which were op posed to the admission of free negroes into the; "future State of Kansas, because -be said it would "give offence to many of our best friends in the North. ranswered, "these ar our sentiments, independent of Northern Abolitionists, or Southern Nulli fiers." I then let Mr. Brown know that I was a member of the? secret order, after which he hesitated a good deal, and then told rne to call the next dar." I returned the next day and he gave me two Consti unions for the county, and two for the town of Doinphan, in which I was to organize a society Our delegates were informed at Big Springs, that I had Constitutions to organize them into a society. When returned I was immediately put at to or ganize them which I did, and until alter then I never read their Constitution. then spoke to some men in the county, who ivauJ 1 g j into it oaly ba . condition, and appeared very lukewarm in regard to it. -I gave them no encouragement, and felt that ray mission was done as I had prom ised. I then felt that I was at Liberty to remain silent and push this thing no further I concluded I had better keep the two cop ies of the constitution, which I thought would be useful to me in making this expo sition, a thing I had determined on doing as soon as I discovered their treasonable designs. ungrateful wretch if I felled to show to rs For the Scatter Sovereip. , the world the secret action of a party who Origin, history And progrew f Ab- are led by and reverence the following Constitution and Ritual more than they do the Constitution and Laws of their country: THere McLaughlin intended to have i inserted the Constitution and Ritual of the olitionism, Higherlawi jm, ' &c, &c.

From this organ ization, I have been informed, the Execu tive Committee at Lawrence have received 8100,000 to defray the expenses of a State organization, a movement which is on foot by the Free-Soil-Abolition party I am a member of this Committee, and the above information was brought to me by a nember of the Committee. This was just before the election for Ex-Governor Reed- er, and made me feel very lukewarm in the cause of the Reedrr party, for I began to be convinced more than ever that Ex Governor Reeder and a large majority of his supporters were strongly tinctured with Abolition doctrines,' yet I could not muster up courage enougii to withdraw trom the party until I cast my vote for Ex-Governor Reeder. But in doing so I voted against the State organization, for I felt it to be mv duty, as I knew it to be a measure of only a small portion of the citizens of the Territory, and headed only by Abolition ists and traitors to their country. This I am positive oi, tor it is tne territorial Grand Encampment and the Executive Committee who are at the head of this movement. Both I know to be propaga ting treason, the Grand Encampment has arms with which to rebel against Govern ment. In the Executive Committee, of which I became a member,' from being in troduced by Ex-Governor Reeder, there was a resolution offered ' which provided that every reliable Free State man iu the Territory should be furnished with a rifle, a brac ot pistols and a sabre, and required to take an oath to hold, himself in readi ness to march into service under his supe rior officer when called upon, and that he would go to the, rescue of the person or All these abors all, are the jewels of my eyes Who exchange far the Gospel jl boktf stale k ties. : "j - ' V. : I V :,: Then he said to himself, as he laogh'd in his sleeve, , " : ' ; -:.

As yet nothing roore known, but even this will be gratifying 1 telligence to the people ot the Uiatrt btates, and pmlanuepist3 everywhere, who have taken great interest in the sue cess of his expedition, and latterly bare had many forebodings as to his safety. Every one will recall his first expedition to the North Pole, in search of Sir JoLu Franklin. His second anil ' last attempt, having the same olject in view, was uu deitaken about, two years since, in the ships Advance and Rescue, under the pat ronage of the United States tioveniment.
