Removal The Office of the Schlatter Sovereign has teen removed to the frame building foot of Atchison street, near the Jteam Ferry Landing. r The Lumber Trade. . The insatiate demand which exists here for lumber, promises soon to be in some nu-asure sppase . Mr. Ihomalson is re-building his mill on the Missouri bot tom immediatty opposite the town; and the erection of another mill has been com menced a short distance below, and Mr. ; V aw Camp will have in operation a third immediately adjoining town on the South. In addition to these, Mr. Gould has open ed a lumber-yard on the levee, which he will keep supplied from a mill foolishly erected at a town above, where but little demand for lumber exists. : There is still room here for, other mills, as those already up and in process of erection will not be able to supply the , demand which exists, and which will be greater than ever this fall and next spring. Thoe desiring to engage in the lumber business could not do better than to erect their mills in th vicinity of Atchison, where tho supply of timber is abundant, and tho market for ' lumber good. . . .. . . - D1' Within a few weeks past, several new, beautiful and yalueable beds of sand have beed opened in and near town, which on being mixed with mortar, forms a cem ent of a character far superior to 'any other in us in the Territory, a ad equal to any in use any where.

'. v e understand that tha "mnr. 'fief itself turns ont to be, as is now Le- lieved, only the shooting of a hog by some drunken rowdies. The individual sunrjosed to have been murdered, a liquor dealer turns up alive. The supposed murderer. whose confession was taken as conclusive proof that ronrder had been committed, turns out to be a poor worthless drunkard, who was suffering from a fit of delirium tremens at the time when the confession was madeand noone now appears to be lieve that he had any hand in any such affair, but that'the object of his pretended confession was to induce the vigilance com mittee to save him the trouble of suicide sn object which he came near accomplish ing; as at one time the crowd was on the very eve of hanging him. One of the persons whom he implicated in his confession as a participator, in the murder was arrested in Port William in this county on Monday last, has since been keptunder 'guard in this place, by the sheriiTor Atchison county, awaiting tbe re quisuion of the .Leavenworth authorities ; but as those arrested in Leavenworth have been discharged it is probable that the prisoner here will also. ' On Saturday evening last a gentleman from this place, Mr. HcLraica, was as saulted by a band of Leavenworth rowdies and severely beaten, for a want of faith in James Lane. Mr. H. saved his life by a free use of his knife, with which he severe ly wounded one of his assailants. Mr. II. was afterwards arrested by one of the town marshals, and was kept at his hotel until Sunday afternoon. During the night and Sunday, it was with the greatest difficulty that the mob could be restained from taking summary vengeance on Mr. H. They congregated around his hotel, raging like wild beasts, thirsting for blood. On Sun day afternoon, Mr. Helfrich had a hearing before a justice of the peace, when he clear !y proved that he acted only in defence and was discharged on $250 bail. Mr. Helfrich is a gentleman and a thorough Free State man. ' Of the status or politics of his assailants we are not prepared to speak. On Monday evening last,, as Mr. Slough, a lawyer, of Learenworth, was sitting quietly in the parlor of a friend he was fired at through the window three times. He escaped ; with his life throu a want of skill on the part of the intended assassin. ' . , On Monday last, the people selected a village Mayor and counciL Ihe candi dates of the Free State party were success ful by an aerage majority of 275 . We trust that this will be the inauguration of a new and better era in that new Sodam and that an end will be put to both public and private murdering. P. S. Up to 3 o'clock yesterday after noon . we have heard of no more assassi nations or hangings at Leavenworth, but there is no saying when the butchering operations will be resumed. The people are all valiant, and the cry is still for blood. We publish this week a letter from Mr." Woodwokth relative to his shameful treatment here, on the 22d ult We disagree, however, with him that it was done to control the October election if it were, we think now there is no such determination. They surely possess more democracy, after taking a second sober thought. , And we think instead of the country around forsaking us, it is thei duty to encourage the Free State men here and should come and trade with ihem, We propose to control things here in peacable way, as American citizens should do; to let the territory and world know that Kansas matters can thus be adjusted There is not many but would have been as vindictive as he, after such treatment. We have no doubt but the Free State men will stand up manfully for him at the polls on election., - We think he committed no great sin by dissuading hid friends from forcing us to listen to' a man obnoxious to the pro- slavery men .here and raaoy 'Free State men. That was the proper course to pur sue and we commend him for it.

The following contains the most import ant features, of; President Buchanan's re ply to the mnmorial of Prhf. Silliman and forty-two other gentlemen of Connecticut, on the affair of Kansas: The President commences by stating that from the distinguished source when it proceeds, as well as its peculiar character, he had deemed . proper to depart from his general rule in such cases, and to give it an ar" ver. He then argues: You first assen that the fundamental principles of the constitution of the United States and of our political institutions, is that tbe peo ple shall make their own laws and elect their own rulers. You then express grief and astonishment that I should, have viola ted this principle, and, through Governor Walker, have employed the army, one of which the people of Kansas to obey, not their own nor those of the United States. but laws which it is notorious, and estab lished upon evidence they never made, and rulers they never elected, and as car ollary from the foregoing you represent that I nm openly held up and proclaimed to the great derogation of our national character as violating m its most essential particular the solemn oath which the Pre sident has taken to support the Constitu tion of this Union. These nre heavy charges, proceeding from gentlemen of your high character, and if well founded ought to consign my name to infamy, but in propoition to their gravity common jus tice, to say nothing of christian character, require that before making them ycu should have clearly ascertained that they were well founded, for if they are not, they will rebound with withering condemnation upon their authors. Have you performed this preliminary towards . the man who. how everunworthyrialhe Chief" Magistrate of your country? It; so either you or I am laboring under a strange delusion, and should this prove to be your case it will present a memorable example of the truth that political prejudice is blind even to the existence of the plainest and most palpa ble historical facts. To these facts let us refer: I" When I entered upon the duties of the Presidential office on the 4th of March last, what, was the condhion of Kansas ? That Territory had been organized, and a government in all its branches was in full operation, a Governor, Secretary of Ter ritory, Chief Justice, two Associate Jus tices, Marshal and District Attorney, had been appointed by my predecessor, and were all engaged in discharging their duties. A code of laws had been enacted by tne 1 eraitonal -Legislature, and tne Judiciary were employed in expounding and carrying those laws into effect. , In referring to the controversy that had previously arisen respecting the election of members to the territorial Legislature, he says: "In fact I found the Government of Kansas as well established as that of any other Territory. Under these circumstances what was my duty ? Was it to sustain this Government, to protect it from the violence of lawless men who were determined to rule or ruin, to prevent it from being over turned by force, or, in the language of the Constitution, to tak care that the laws be faithfully executed ? . It was for this pur pose, and this alone, that I ordered a null tary force to Kansas as a posse comilaius, aiding the civil magistrates to carry the laws into execution. The condition of the Terntory at the tune, which I need not portray, rendered this precaution actually necessary. In this state of affairs, would I not have been justly condemned bad left the Marshals and other officers of like character impote&t to ex cut lh processes and judgments of courts of justice estab lished by Congress or the Territorial Leg islature, under' its' express authority, and thus have suffered the Government itself to become an object of contempt in the eyes of tne people : inu yet mis is wnai you de signate as forcing the people of Kansas to obey not their own laws nor .those of the United Mates, and lor doing which you have denounced me as having violated my oath. I ask, what else could I have done or ought 1 - to have done f would you have .desired that I should abandon the Ter ritorial Government, sanctioned as it ha& been by Congress, to illiegal violence, and thus renew the . scenes . of . civil war and bloodshed which every patriot had de plored ? : This would indeed have been to violate my oath of office, and to fix a dam ning blot on the character of my Admin istration. - - - I most cheerfully admit that the necessi ty for sending a military force to Kansas to aid in executing tne law renects no ere dit upon the character of our country, but : let the blame tali on the heads of the guil ty. Whence did this necessity arise ? A portion of the people of Kansas unwilling to. trust to hei ' ballot-box; the certain Americon remedy for the redress of all grievances, undertook to create an,inde' pendent government for themselves ; and had this attempt proved successful, it would of coarse, . nave - suovertea the existing government, prescribed and recognized by Congress, and substituted a revolmiaary Following the wise r example of Mr, Madison towards the Haitfbrd Convention, an illegal and dangerous combination such as that of the Topeka Constitution and laws. In that event they shall be resisted and put down by whole power of Govern ment. In performing this duty I have the approbation of my own conscience and; I humbly trust of my God. - I thank you for the assurence that you will not refrain fromprayiog that almighty God will make my administration an ex? ample of justice and benificence, . You can greatly assis me in arriving at this blessed cocsnmmation by exerting your mflaencj in allowing existing sectional .excitement on the subject of slavery, which has been productive of much evil and no good, and which, if, it succeeds in attaining its object, would ruin the slave as' well as the master. This .would be - genuine t philanthropy. Every day of. my lif: I; feel how inade quate I am to perform the' duties of my high station without the countenance and support of the Divine Providence, and yet placing, my trust m Him, and Him alone, I entertain good hope that he will enable me to do equal justice to all portions of the Union, and thus render me an humble in strument in restorinff peace and harmony among the people ot the several States.

We have to announce the demise of this venerable ' and excelent gentleman, the author of "The Christian Philosopher, and of several other, works of a pious and instructive nature, which nave met with high acceptance and popularity. He ex pired at his residence in Broughty Ferry, where he had lived for the long period of more than thirty years, quietly prosecuting his astronomical studies, engaged in the labors of an. unoste&tatMMaMbnevoleDoe, and enjoying I the y warm respect of all around him. Recently he suffered, the breavement of two grandchildren, and never thoroughly recovered the blow which he had thus sustaine , It was not til! Fri day last, however, that he became serious ly ill, but from that period he gradually sank. Dr. Dick had attained the ripe old age of eighty-three.. The removal ..of one who had so far exceeded the ordinary limit of human life, is scarcely a matter of sur prise; but the exerople. ot his calm, gentle, honorble and ' useful . history is one that should not ba witout its salutary influence. A year or two ago his services in popu larizing science were acknowledged by the gift of one of those scanty pensions which are allotted to tbe reward of such labors.
