It ia not needed and will corrupt the settlers more than it will help them. There ia no suffering in the towns that that in tho Territory will be relieved by what has been aent and only positive want of fa, clothes and shelter shoald be the objects of bounty.' Sensible far more sensible than we had expected from anything 44 free. It is too, a confirmation of our assertion, that these appropriations were a part and par cel of a final attempt to wrest this Terri tory from pro slavery settlers. We said they were tot needed for any other pur pose, and here we have free Stale evi dence to the same effect.

Atchison K. T. January 8th 1S57. P. T. A BELL. President. tor Missouri Abroad. Sis v ed im kicht. The Cinrincati Commercial says that the President of the Pacific railroad company of Missouri, re cently paid a visit to England, with a view to procure a loan for the benefit of the road, upon the security of the mortgage bonds of the oompany. On presenting his pro posals and securities to British capitalists, he was gravely and peremptorily informed that they could not reciprocate. They had heard of the lawlessness of the people of Missouri, of their invasion of, and crimes crimes committed in, the Territory of Kan sas, and were fully ef the opinion that transactions with such a people would be too palpably unsafe to be advisable. Re monstrance was useless. They had made up their minds ; the whole moneyed inte rest of Great Britain was with them, and the President of the Pacific railroad com pany was forced to return home with an empty pocket. , The above which we find in the col umns of the Connecticut! Press is sus ceptible of one or two constructions that are entitled to the serious consideration of Missouri, and her sister slaveholdiag States With their uual flagrant disregard for te truth, the abolition journals attri bute to anything but an accurate cause this refusal (if aay refusal there has been) of English capitalists to make advances en Missouri railroad stock. The part that State las taken in Kansas affairs is Bot the reason of this unwillingness to invest; but the abolition sympaties of the lenders may have had its effect. It ia welt known tliet thv impudent interference in our local affairs by the English, is tret confined to Duchesses of SulLerbnd alone, but reaches the very feet, and encircles the very crown, of the throne of that meddlesome monar chy. Is it surprising, then, that we find the moneyed men of England seconding the designs, cf abolitionism in America, especially when they imagine that a con tingency might arise that would render an investment unsafe. John Bull is a philosopher. He enjoys his roast beef for dinner, then complacent ly strokes his chin while he cogitates over his mug of ale not with that enthsiastn and sanguineness that might be looked lor in a Young America, but with all the cau tious and guarded reasoning that is char acteristic of the dyed in-the- wool old fo gy. Thus pondering, he pictures Kansas us a free State, under the rule of a horde of negro-thieves, who are pressing down upun the slaveholder in Missouri with a vehemcne? that promises soon to'rob him of his negroes, or force him either to re move to a section of country rnoro remote from their depredations, or to engage in a civil war either of which emergencies our irans-ailantic abolition ally would de light to see arise. He prognosticates this state of affairs, and portrays similar db asters to those that followed upon the slave emancipation in the est Indies, lie is alive to the fact, that should the aims of abolitionism be accomplished, Missouri would be depopulated, her Leenp fields and tobacco patches be evergrown "with briars and thistles, and her 44 stocks" bo reduced to useless rage, not worth a farthing oa the dollar. Holding, as they do, such a crisis not unlikely to arrive, is it strange that Eng lish capitalists should refuse te make in vestments where they would be surroundod by such uncertainties. Nor de they depict, in colors any too -ivid, the evil effects the admission ef Kan as as a free State would have upon Mis souri. It would be her inevitable ruin What measures, then, we ak, ought si not to adopt to thwart so direful a con summation. If she pause raid way, or per tnits conservative, timid advisers, ortreacb erous, abolition demagogues to rule in her ceuncils, the time fur action wil! be itrc irevabie-iosi. it is no tune lor wavering or inaction. The cemiag spring and sum mer will decide our fate, and that of Mis souri. We both 44 sink er swim, survive or perish" together. One more struggl and it will be a warm one, too, and i the South does her duty, the day is ours But we need settlers and means to procure them. An appropriation should bo mad by the Legislature of every Southern State and we confidently look for Missouri to take the lead. If she will do this, and leave not a stone unturned to vanquish ab olitionism in this Territory, she will en counter no further diflkalty in gaining ac cess to the vaults of English bankers, " Mr. Roll, liibson, who was shot rcent!y in Kickapoo, and was supposed at the time to be mortally wounded, is re covering. Judge Cunningham, one of the newly appointed Justices for Kansas, ar rived in Lea vn worth a few days since, and has probably by this time reached Lo compton. Pork. There is great scarcity of pork in this vicinity, and the prospects are that but few families will be enabled to lay in their usual supply. Missouri has failed to furnish a supply indeed, it is with dif ficulty that she meets the home demand. Mr. E. S. Wilkinson, one of the able editors of the Weston (Mo.) Argus, has retired from the position of editor to a more retired life, leaving the Argus un der the entire control of the Messrs. Wise ly, who are fully competent ta discharge the duties which have devolved upon them. JST" A bill confurring free suffrage has passed both branches of the North Caroli na Legislature. The law has yet to be submitted, to a vote ef the people for ratifi- cation. What Abolitionists think of Him. Gov. Geary, having become satisfied that he can make nothing by adhering to the pro-slavery party, has become a free- state m tu- He has taken steps te have all the pro-slavory officers in the Territory, except Uato, I wno is so puam mat ne can . - r - -v IT J e use mm tor nis purposes j, uismisseu. oec retary Woodson's turn, it is said, will come next, and it is currently reported here that Richard . McAllister, the Governors private secretary, will be appointed ia his place. Thus writes the Leavenworth corres pondent of the Cincinnati Gazette. So this judge-removinj dictator will on ly permit .such men te remain in office in this Territory as he can 44 use for his own purposes, which are, to abolitionize Kan- sas. tie nave long since ut uoeu iuj would be his line of policy have cau r i l - l tioned our friends to beware of this digai tary nd, if further proof were necessa ry to establish the justice of our warniugs, we have only to cite such extracts as the fo'.Iowiug, from the Herald of Freedom : Kansas is not yet conquered ! Prop erty in Lawrence is to-day worth fifty per cent, more than it was before tht ad minis traiion of Gov. Geary was inaugurated ! Tell the North to be of good cheer. Roll the emigration in. .

We are satis fied it is owing to the aid given abolition ism by the 44 powers that be. Political Attitude of parties in Con gress. " The subjoined exposition of the position ef parties in Congress is from the intuli gent Washington correspondent of the Charlston Mercury, and may be received we think, as a correct mirror of the lines that distinguish the difference betwen pol ilicions of ihn day, as well as a reliable index to the principles that will be recog nised by the incoming administration: The Republican majority demand that Squatter Sovereignty shall be admitted not as a final adjustment, mark you, but as I giving way at that point. There is now no longer any doubt tut what the Democratic party, and a .majority of tho Southern men, will give way and corapro- i mute the principle, by leaving it as a judi cial question for the Supreme Court to de- ! cide. low, the especial pomt of interest to our people is, whether the Nurthera ma jority will accept the final judgment of the Supreme Court as binding, in answer, I have only to say, that during this entire session i have liscned carfully to the de bates, accompanied by the cross-examination carried on by all parlies, and there is no doubting that the- result is simply this: The Republicans claim the principle known as the Wilmot Proviso, to be the meaning of the Constitution, i. e. the dom inant sentiment of the Northern people. The Northern Know-Nothings hold to the same opinion. The Northern Democrats, with here and there an exception, hold that the people-, while in a Territorial condition, can ex clude slave owners, with their property, from the Territory; l. e. Squatter Sove reignty. A large majority of the Southern De mocracy almost unanimously hold that the people have no such power, but that the Southern people can carry their proper ty to any Territory, on a perfect equality with Nertheru citizens, and that wheu the community ef peoples form a Slate Con ititution, then, and then alone, ihe ques tion of rejecting involuntrry servitude can be settled- - The Northern Democracy ask of the South to leave the questton, as a judical Obe, to be decided by the Supreme Court. - This compromise, I know personally, from a thorough canvass of private senti ment in Congress, will be accepted by the Southern members a few protesting. The Republicans will absolutely refuse to accept the decision of a casx, as the settlement of the pkixciplb, and have in variably answeiel that Mich will be their position for the future. This, I tuink, to be a fair and reliable statement of the exact condition of politi cal sentiment in the House and Senate this session; and on this compromise, or middle ground, upon the subject of Squat ter Sovereignty, Mr. Buchanan will take his stand as the settled policy of his Ad ininistratien. The Republicans, placing themselves in opposition, will adhere to their watchword, No more Slave States, and Apush on the attack for I860. Mr. Buchanan must either join this Northern party, or taking up his position upon the Constitution, supported by the Supreme Court of the United States, fall back on the Southern States in defence of the pro perty and social rights of their citizens under the Constitation. Ho must defend the minority against the majority. Any attempt at conciliation will be fa tal. Any attempt te induce the South to go an inch further backward, will lead to disorganization in the party in that direc tion. A middle party is impossible, sim ply because these are no elements out of wbicu to construct it. vio particular meas ure will effect it. No great schema Pa cific Railroads, Collins. Lino, or otherwise will effect it. The question of the day is this: Ars the Northern and Southern communities two peoples?, This i.sue in volves all others over-rides all others is the Old Man of the Sea of American pol itics: Other questions rest like painted h ps upon a printed ocean. The conflict is the original one, of Federalism, seel ing its monarchial end, against American De mocracy. The negro question is the me dium of action, and cannot ba evaded. Tnere must be a Southern party in self defence, simply because we are fighting fur our homes. It must b .a resistance party, because e sre pen!y attacked. Editorial Correipoience. Lxcomptojt, K. T.t Jan. 11, 57. Dear Jours We find the following in the Herald of Freedom : IsrosMATioa wasted. Of David Baldwin, who, when last heard from, was on his way to the battle of Hickory Point, in Kansas. Any information m reference to his fate will be thankfully received, by his brother, Isaac Baldwin, White Cloud, Mills coanty, Iowa. As we have it in our power to give the the desired information, it weald be cruel indeed to wuhold it OnSunday morning, 14th Sept. last. Mr. David Baldwin, together with many others of his compatriots in arms, without permission or parole, from Col. Harvey, took speedy flight, from the bloody field ef Hickory Point, and when last seen by the " spirit Tappers was passing swift ly in a line direct for . the habitation of Hades. By the inflexible decree of the Prince cf darkness, he will make that place his permanent abode. Therefore, his brother Isaac can obtain any informs tion he may desire by ad Jresaiug a letter (without prepaying postage,) to the fol lowing notable personage, MR. DEVIL PLUTS, Care of ) Tartarus, Ciltrus S H'm R. Hear the Northers Papers. " The iiorth subdued! Yesterday in theU. S. Senate, Mr Collamer, .of Vt. exposed the falsehoods and slanders of the Presdent's Message against the Free- mooters. In the Hous o Mr. Smith of Tenn., defended the message from the scathing criticisms of the American Re publicans. The House next, 111, to 109, re-considered the vote forbidding Whitfield to be sworn in ; a motion to refer to the commit tee on elections failed by 7 majority, and Whitfield ordered to be sworn, 112 to 108 and he at once took the oath of obedience to the constitution. So the Hoase was made to stultify itself and to endorse the treasonable and practical invasions of the pol lis ef Kansas by tho border ruffians of Missouri. At the last session under the same state of facts, Whitfield was outsted frem the house and his seat made vaeant ; eleven men who then voted against him, hoping thereby to secure their re-election, now go for him, all but one having failed in their efforts tot retain the seats and ha v ing nothing to gain by violating their pro- slavery instincts of their heart these men are Valk, Whitnoy, and Williams of New York; Broome, Fuller, Hickman, Par ker and Iyson of Pennsylvania; Harrison ond More of Ohio ; and Well of Wis oonsin. Every one of these men were elected on avowed anti-Nebraska ground, and thereforo ie now traitors as well as dough faces. Hickman, Parker, and Williams call themselves Democrats, and lhe other eight are Fillmore Americans, high in the, confidence of Millard Fillmore, and un derstood to echo or shape his sentiment. Broome and Fuller, (it is to be hoped from lingering shame) dodged the vote ; but the other nine with the effrontary of rufHans in the .house of friends, voted squarely for the admission of Whitfield; had two of gone the other way or had three more of them adsented themselves, this foul insult to the persecuted freemen cf Kansas and to the whole north, would not have been offered., As it is slavery, muider, treason perjury and general corruption have tri umphed, and the acknowledged unblush ing ruffians who reap the benefit, scornful ly point at the free states and say with truth "your congressmen have dene it !' Friends of liberty, whether Republicans or Freemont Americans, shall not our temporary union which has just given the vote of oar old commonwealth so over whelming for Freemont and freedom, be made permanent, so that if we are com pelled to bequeath to posterity the curse of slavery, we shall also had down to it a united north, knowing nothing paramount to equal right and universal liberty ? Frauds at the ballot box have given slave ry for another congress at least, the con trol of the government; unnaturalized for eigners have been driven like sheep to the polls, aad our money in the hands of a pro-slavery administration has been used to influence the unprincipled and produce discord among these who are disposed te be like-minded. The welfare of freedom requires greater restraints on the power of foreigners and ruffians at the ballot-box, and and on the influence exerted over our government by slaveiy. Americanism in its modified form, and Republicanism in its more liberal phrase, have joint in terests ; the parties that united in support ing John C. Freemont yeilded alike to common sense to imperative duty and to 'manifest destiny. Shall we not then constantly endeavor to make that union perfect, and to meet the twin evils that threaten us with a harmonious, invincible American Repallican party ?"

In the Senate, a resolution was adopted, calling for Col. Sumner's cor respondence with the Secretary of War as well as with Gov. Shannon, relative to Kansas matters. Mr. Brown gave notice of a eill for a Pacific railroad. Mr. Wilson introduced a bill amendato ry of the Kansas-Nobraska bill, which was debated at considerable length, but no final action was taken. Mr. Fessenden introduced a bill in ad dition to the act more effectually to pro vide for the punishment of certain crimes against the United States, which was re ferred to the judiciery committee. In the House, Mr. Whitfield introduced a bill for paying losses by the recent dis turbances in Kansas, and for establishing a district court at Leavenworth city. Mr. Campbell reported several appro priation bills ; also a bill amending the 2Sth section of the tariff of 1842, so as to prevent the importation of obscene prints, stationary, &c. The bill was passed. The House then resumed debate on the President's message, when, after remarks from Messrs. Nichols and Crawford, Mr. Jones, of Pennsylvania argued that no ex express powor had been delegated to Con gress to establish territorial government, but, holding a large extent of soil the con stitution gives authority for the application of rules under which the country shall be settled, and the pullie lands sold. Then, in accordance with this first great princi ple, the law organizing Kansas and Ne braska, derived its vitality from the implied consent of 'the free men who settle the country. They should be allowed to exer cise the right to frame thoir own institu tions, the power of the territorial assem bly extending to all rightful subjects of legislation, consistent with the constitution of the United Slates and the principles of the organic acL Tho republican party, so far from carrying out the principles ef true republicanism, would play the part of des potism under the cry of liberty and free dom, claiming and exercising power to govern the people in the territories. The following graphic description of a Newspaper dilemma is extracted from the Council Bluff Bugle, aud will give our Southern friends an insight to the f raturni ty ia thta climate aud the great difficulties we have to labour under. In the winter season here it U indeed difficult to be punctual in our issues, ihe country is new and affords few facilities to insure comfort. The "devil" is eternally ringing his exchanges of tcood and copy in the ears of the poor editoi sometimes editors, pnblishers, jurs, end even the devil him self are compelled to leave the office aiul tern out in full force with Jce and mall in hand, to procure wood; and after it is cut. they frequently have to hitch up an ox team, to hall it. Now if this is not hard, we ack our friends of the sunny clime, what is? Hear the Bugle. Where is my Bogle. Why, bless you. my dear fellow, we had none for you last week. It got "snowed in," aud is hardiy thawed out yet. Had any miserable fellow happened accidentally to have blundered i:;lo the place vhere our office ought to have been on last publication day, he weuld have been unl or lunate indeed, for a sight would have greeted his vision that like tnc untold secrots of Hamlet's ghoat, it would have made "each particular hair to stand ou end. like quills upoa the frightful porcu pine. Pen cannot portray the Jook of anguish and distress that shrouded the vis age of the poor, toil-worn, shivering prin ter, who looked with dismay upon the scene of devastation und ruiu around. Hi glo rious old press was under a heavy 'pres sure ef snow, whilet his bank, if not bro ken, was turned into a 4iowbank," aud between the ice and suow, it was a ques tionable "case," whether his 4cases" we:e "hard cases. or only covered with snow. H!s"sticks were "sticks' full of icy snow and "sticking" fast to the last "st.ck" of stove wood; a large stene in the ceutere of the room was an "imposing" spectacle to behold and altho his "rules" were sus pended, there was no member of the House te move the previous question. His vaults were filled with tujff instead of "quoin," and his "form" was lying co'd upon the stene in the iey embrace of the chase. His "caps" were covered with swow; his "sheets" weted and icy; his "pi" frozen and his "furniture" terribly dilapidated "The printer's son" was on the "galley, and the peor heart-broken printer sat dis pondingly upon an inverted ink keg, with digits shoved deep into an enty jacket pocket, the very picture of dispair, whilst his satanic highness, the "devil, with pockets filled with brimstone matches, was sitting upon the frosty stone, whilst the editor upon his knees, with hands uprais ed, looked aghast upon the scene! Ab, dear reader, such a sight would melt anything but the towering piles of snow and ice around. Ycu don't wonder then that the Bugle did'nt appear? Well, dont, we beg of you.

William Crozier, a very resr,n. young man of Monmouth, ef g0xl eJi acter, became attached to a daughter Mr. William Fleming, of that pUC(.t uuaicm vvaa iuuy ana warmly rcipr. cated. The young man, though otktrwis, an unexceptionable person, was sc0r that circumstance operated to cr, ' fierce hostility towards the match, Cn y part of Fleming and his two sens. Tb" took every opportunity of iasuhiag and taunting him with his poverty. To stifle, if possible, the love of thj young lady, her faiher determined u her away to Pennsylvania, so that ly l sence end distance he might estrange it: acknowledged affottioa fox the yov man. In accordance with this ieihyion was sent, but on taking the cara, WM heard to express her determination to marry Mr. Crazier, in spite ef ti, Unkind efforts of her friends to prevent it. After the young' lady had ' been gov some time, thore were some movent on the part ef Crozier, which led FJea- ing to suspect that he intended to follow her to the seclusion they had prarijJ fr her. This led to the horrible tragedy. On Thursday morning, December 14 Mr. William Fleming, with his two tea, John and Henry, and a lawyer, who in. mnloTd Lv them for tha occasion. t ' I ceeded to the Baldwin House, in llaie mouth, where yeuug Crozior boarded.ad between the hours of eight and nits 3 the forenoon, requested an interview w;i him at his roern. He went with them, as requested, so! when they had all entered the room, tit elder Flewiag locked the door. There they remained, our infenntu says, from about 9 o'clock, a. to 2 o' clock, p. m., locked in. Daring the time they were thes leck4 in. every effort was made by the Flem ings, both faiher and cons, and ly the lawyer, to induce Crozier to sign such s writing as they should dictate, renoumutf the young lady in question forever. This he resolutely refused to do, in spits of threats and persuasions which wsn freely used. A sort of compromise writing waa tti ly agreed upon and signed, which wu satisfactory to the faiher, but not to tat sens. They declared they would harers venge by lashing him with a whip had brought for the purpose, which tLey.t once proceeded to exc-cu.e. After they had struck six or serrn bVm, Crozier detnrminad to resist with all lis might. A desperate scufile vnsued. One cf the Flemings drew a pistol, and fired it Crozier with the ivttont to kill. Just si It fired, however, the lawyer e truck the hand which held the pistol up, and the cLar lodged in the ceiling instead of the young man's head. Crozier then assailed the assassiu with a jack-knife, stalled hia and instantly killed him. Then, turaia upon the other brother, he stabbed him. Meantime the report of the phtol alarm ed the house, and the brother ol Cros'er being there, rushed to his rescue. Kick ing the door lovkod on the inside, he bar it open and with one blew knocked dawa the elder Fleming, who opposed his pat sage. Ae soon as the door was burst opea.ts brother who was last wounded paseJ into the bar-rooui, fell there and expired. The blow which fcllod the elder FIea ing. H?eled the skin from his forehead ta4 left him for a while senseless. Thus, in attempting by force to compel young Crozier te accede to their tyranni cal dictation, two brothers were slain Ij the person assailed, and die third perses was roughly handled. When the deed was dons, Crozier roe untarily surrendered hitaself to the prop authorities lor examination, and wet, understand, acqnitted cu the ground of s justifiable homicide. When it was suspected that Crazier wu about to follow Miss Fleming to Penniyl vania, a third brother was dispatched, post haste, to bring her home, and when the fe tal tragedy occurred, they had net itW ed.
