It has been given a thorough trial, and found to be good. i?"The steamer Sonora landed some freight at Portland, Mo., the other day, among which were several kegs of powder. Thre little hoys, who were present, no ttcing the powder, at once concluded to have an explosion ; they stove in the head of one of the kegs, and procuring some matches, one of them lighted a match and deliberately stepped up to the broken keg and threw the burning match into the pow der. The consequence was, an explosion of both kegs, and the mangling of two of the boys sa dreadfully that they died in a lew houis thereafter. The third boy es caped without serious injury. fftfSThe following article we take from j the Courier, published at Jackson Missou-1 ri. The article is a sensible one, and un less the spirit, it so forcibly sets forth is car ried out, Missouri will soon, yes, too soon be in the hands of the Free-soil Know Nothing party : , , . -. "While we look at the unanimity of sentiment and cordial co-operation of the Democraey of Virginia and other South ern States in the recent elections, we can but regret the unfortunate condition of the party in Missouri. Whenever the demo cratic party hasbeen firmly united when ever it has preserved is organization intact, and made principle the basis of its action, it has either accomplished immortal tri umphs or paved the way for grand and no ble victories in the future. Where the democratic party has come in contact with Know-Nothingisin, the latter has either been vanquished or so badly maimed that every effort to revive it will be useless. Though, like a mushroom, it has' grown up in a day. and swept over the ocuntry upon the wings of secrecy its giant like proportions have proved too weak .and pithy for the weight with which it was en cumbered. Its main hope of success rested on its ability to deceive, and not upon that open, dignified and candid action which has ev er characterized the Democratic party. But to our purpose. The organization of our party, the firm, unassembled, effective unity of the Democratic elements not only in the southeast, but throughout the State, against the trickery and deceptive preten sions of Know-Nothingism, we would . proudly hail as the triumph of the constitu tion, and republican principles over their blind, bigoted assailants in Missouri. Abolition Slanders. Our attention has been called to a false and malicious article which appeared re cently in the Kansas Free State, an Abo lition paper published at Lawrence, Kan sas Territory ; - in which the captain and officers or the popular steauner. Polar Star, are vilified and tracued, and represented as gross and barbarous' "rufiin. But for the fact that this libel is finding its tray iuto almost the entire Nortbern Press, we would deem it too contemptible to re quire a notice at our hands. 1 The faets anaboa s fclbivs : A sosjf meddle some, abolition preacher, by the name1 of; Clark, took passage on the Polar Star,' on her 'downward trip about a . month ago. He, as is usual with these reverend gen tlemen, was intruding himself upon the at tention of every one, presuming that his sacredotal robes would protect his person from merited chastisement. . ,Tfce passen gers endured him until forbearance ceased to be a virtue, ivheti a gentleman of Inde pendence, by the name of Childs.without the knowledge of any of the officersjorthe assis tance of any of the , passengers, whipped him soundly. Clark, it seems, was a big. able fellow and being, as the Free State say? a fighting man, he .was ' not satisfied. but .again insulted Childs at the table, and struck him over the head with a chair. for which last act he was whipped within an inch ofhislife. We are informed. however, that there was no interference on the part of the other passengers except to take Mr. Childs o9 of him. . This is the whole story as it occurred The people may judge how far Captain Dix and the officers of the Star are charge able with fault. This gross and cowardly attack upon the Captain of the Polar Star is just in consonance with the character of pusillanimous abolitionists, and would prob ably subject "the editor of the Free State, if he should come in contact with Captain Dix, to just such a fiagelation as Clark got, and such as he would not soon forget. The grand ultimatum of Abolition re venge is; a withdrawal of patronage. Hence the Free State is going to wreak his vengeance on the Polar Star by coun selling its Northern confrisrs to avoid her in the future. Lucky for the Star, or any other decent boat, if they would do so. Capt. Dix does not desire their patronage. He has a sovereign contempt for all such pusilanimous wretches.- St. Joseph Ga zdtt. ; ; ' H' ; ' " x The Bloody Honday. The Rev. Mr. Carran, a Methodist Clergyman, at Jacksonville, Indiana, has written a letter to Gov. Wright, of Miss., from which we make the following extract: The scenes in Louisville on bloody Mon day have never been fully portrayed. ' From my chamber window, on that dread ful night, I witnessed the conflagration of German dwellings, heard the screams of women and children, the rattle of firearms, and the shrieks of the wounded and dying; land oil, God forbid I should witness such a sight again, even at such a distance;" the recollection sickens me, and fills my dreams with fearful images. And for these atroc ities a portion of the professed reliyious press of the couutry find an apology. The Western Christian Advocate the following week gaa- the KnovV, Nothing- verson of the whole throwing the blame upon the poor foreigners without uttering one word of censure against their brutal murderers ; ! and the editor himself an Irishman ! How else can we account for his editorial course? There was once a J udas and an A mold, shocking instances of perfidy and iniquity,' which we had hoped would never find a parallel, there may, however turn up an other traitor. It is now manifest that the war upon the Catholics, is only an incident in this great movement; it is wrung in to catch the fa natic. That portion of the City of Louis ville where the greatest slather of men and women and destruction of property took place, contained no Catholics; they were Protestants. But they were Democrats. They were industrious, peaceable citizens, contributing - to the productive wealth of the city and ' county, paying their taxes without a murmur, and sustaining the laws. One man, who was injured so badly as to die since, was a member of the German Methodist Church. He was merely pas sing from one place to another, when the mob met, seized and inflicted deadly blows ujKn him, while he was pleading for his life. And Know-Nothing Ministers and editors stand forth as their advocates and apologists : and if one man raises his voice, or write a line to proclaim the truth, these clerical bullies mount him with deadly blows. ! : L.

ON the 23J of October next, a public sale of town lots will take place at Lecompton, Kansas Territory. Lecompton is beautifully situated on a grad ual eminence, on the south bank of the Kansas river, immediately opposite to the mouth of the Grasshopper ;the shore is rocky, and th? land ing the best on the Kansas river. The whole of the country for many miles around may. be said to comprise the richest land and best timber, to be found in th Terri tory. No better hemp, corn, or wheat lands can be found in the West, nor a- better watered country. The nature of the formation is such, that & continued process of fertilization is going on from the gradual disintegration of its limestone. The point of health; the well drain ed nature of the countrl is a sufficient attesta tion, that no malaria can here exist. Building materials of the finest qualities, both limestone and brick clay, are here found in abundance, and tba coal discovered thoughout the Ter ritory, underlies this section also. This portion of the country is the most dens ely populated part of the Territory, and the fine fields of corn and other grains which surround it, show the industry of settlers, and the value of the lands. Little more need be said of the advantages of this place and its neighborhood, as it is expected that persons wishing to invest in the rare chance now presented, will visit the town and judge for themselves. Capitalists and others will, however bear in mind, that Lecompton has been made the seat of Government for Kansas Territory by the Leg islative Assembly, at their late session, and have also made it the county seat of Douglas county, Besides these advantages, which nec essarily include the expenditure of the appropri ations made bv Congress for public buildings, a number of Territorial roads have been declai red ; and will soon be laid out and made from some of the most important places in the Ter ritory to Lecompton ; a chapter has been gran ted for a bridge across the Kansas at the town, which connecting with the ereat military road from Fort Leavenworth to Fort Riely, will en able trains and the traveling public, to avail themselves of thi" fine road, already bridged from one Fort to the other. This point will also centre all the tra.de and traveling from the northwest portion of the Territory, to meet the ssid road, the charter of which has ben grant ed from Lecompton to Leavenworth City, one of the best landings and most prosperous places on the Missouri river. It is useless to dwell npon the advanteges and facilities afforded to the mercantile and travelling public by this river road ; the in creasing trade to the interior and to Santa Fee, will here avoid the disadvantage of the. land transportation from the river to a point so far inland, and ere long Lecompton will be the starting place for all toe trade now scattered along" the Missouri river. , Co! leges, Univesities. and other liters ry institutions have net been neglected by the friends of education, and Legislature; charter- for all these have been obtained, and prominent men named as incorporators er trttstees who will by their zeal and energy," tend their fcflu- enep In building a citv. to be surpassed by vrry lew in iub u nion, i ur mr'.ner lirorma tion, address A.- RODRTQUE.
