KANSAS: SATURDAY, DECEMBER 31, i860. Beader, Wo wish You a UapjJy New . . - Year! - . . . : As our pen changes from 1859 to I860, we cannot but pause a moment and reflect that RQOtber year has flown that one more thread J a the cord of our life-span has snapped, leaving a broken fragment in our hand. . We review the past a year of pleas ures and joys, of griefs and sorrows. All have felt the ever-varying Vicissitudes of life, though not all alike. To some the past has a record of sorrow for those who, since the last "Happy New Year" wa3 spoken, have been shipwrecked on the voyage of life, and to morrow will spend a "Happy New Year" in Heaven. May such expe rience one year of joy undimmed by a single cloud. Let us all make new resolves, and commence the New Year with a prayer ful hope that we will outlive our faults, and do better. Bat the Old Year has gone, and the New is just opening not a single leaf of which has yet been turned. May we keep the next volume of our ledger above without blot or error. Congress. At last accounts no Speaker had been elected by the House Sherman, standing, on the last ballot, 111. Probably by our next we shall have news that Sherman is elected, and then there will be something done besides gambling colloquial discourses and political harrangues. Judge A. I. Baker, through the Ameri cus Sentinel of, last week, makes a series of malignant and untruthful chargas against the "epublican party" of Kansas for acts committed three years ago, which we will take occasion to reply to at some future time, when we will endeavor to Btate facts, and show who were the "John Browns" of those days. Statk Election.- Thirty couuties heard frotu7 give the Republican ticket 2454 ma jority. Parrott's majority in the same coun ties was 23C5. But two counties Shaw nee and Douglas gave larger Republican majorities than Brecken ridge. We are sorry to see that the editor of the Bates County (Mo.) Standard is trying to attach a stigma upon the character of Mr. Augustus Wattles, Secretary of the Jeffer son City and Neosho Valley Railroad, on the ground that he is an abolitionist, and by that means prejudicing the people of West ern Missouri against that road. The editor of the Standard, with that 'oneidea" view which characterizes a slave-holder, is afraid the institution is in danger, and warns slave holders to be on their guard. Not Killed. The Council Grove Press, of last week, pays' that Mr. A. L.Smbner, who was reported killed by the Indians three or four weeks since, has turned up safe and sound on the Little Arkansas. There is no doubt but that the Kaws killed young Per- :rell. " . - . 'The Territorial Legislature convenes on Monday, January 2d. The session will probably be held at Lawrence. The. Burlington Register, of last week, puts down Learnard's majority over Wat son, for Judge, at 34. We think that is a little doubtful. Wood, of the Council Grove Press, in his last week's paper says : "We proposed last week to take hozs. corn. butter, egg, wood, Ac, in paj'ment of subscrip tions and advertising. The result wuj, we got one" load of wood. We now propose to take woVf pelts, buffalo-chips, and old cast off clothing." The success of this last proposition is ap parent, from the fact that Wood wore an old coat at the party last Monday night. . a The New York Tribuno. It is unnecessary for us to speak in praise of the Tribune it is kuown and coveted by every Republican in the land. The campaign of 1860 has now opened. We hope our friends will see that new clubs are got up and old ones increased at every post office in this part of the country. See prospectus and terms in Thk News. Horrible Murder in. Woodson County. The Burlington Register gives an account of the shocking biutality of a band of un known assassins who entered the house of Mr. John Coleman, on Owl Creek, about eleven miles from Neosho Falls, on the night of the 13th inst,, and robbed his house of everything valuable belonging to him- Mlf and family even their clothing and afterward took Mr. C. away from his house a short distance and murdered him an cold blood. " The gang numbered six; nd as yet no clue to their identity or pur- jose has been found out. ; Two children were bitten by a mad do, few days since, near Atchison, one of! .whom will probatly die. We anticipated : a pleasant . time at the Grove last Monday night, and were not dis appointed. ' Our readers will remember that the Gilkey House was Id be opened oft that night with a supper and ball, t to which we and the rest of the country were, "i especi ally invited?" We went with our "best rig," accompanied by seven or eight couple from Emporia the .number increasing to twelve on reaching Amcricus, where we all took dinner at Hill's Hotel. At half-past one, the "train" got fixed up for a start, and, at the word, away we went.- The road isn't as smooth a3 it might be for a mile or two beyond there, aa we well remember; and a3 there were faster- horses and stronger baggies than ours, we kindly let them go ahead the result of which .was that we had a pleasant ride the rest of the way "all by ourself." Mr. Gilkey welcomed us with ex tended hand at about five o'clock, and led us into a house crowded with the beauty and fashion of thirty miles around. After a splendid supper the dance commenced. Forty-six numbers were called, and the eve ning's amusement was soon in the height of its glory. The company was considerably "mixed" in its character, as is usual at such gatherings "out West." But nevertheless, we recognized many talented and accom plished gentlemen and ladies present who would have done honor to any society. There was S. N. Wood, who holds hslf the offices of . honor and profit in this part of the Territory, besides a printing office, and two or three town-sites, and who wanted to trade coats with us so he could dance. We afterwards saw him "go through the mo tions." Among . the first on the floor was our talented friend S. L. Kenyon, County Attorney, and author of the able and bril liant articles that have lately appeared in the Americus Sentinel. A tall, fine looking man, with black mustachios and a military air, was Col. Dickey, of Topeka. There were a number of other distinguished gen tlemen present whom we will not here bring into notice. The lady portion of the assem blage was the "best looking" that we have seen collected together at any parly in Kan sas, l his m?de tr.e dance a most recherche affair. The supper, at 11, was magnificent, comprising all the fine' things "that" culinary art could devise. The whole affair, as we said, was a pleas ant one, and we have no doubt was enjoyed to a fuller extent by a larger proportion of those present than at any previous one of the kind in this portion of the Territory. Wool Baising. The New York Tribune, of a late date, makes mention of the fact that "there is a continued, steady feeling in favor of making Texas one of the greatest wool-producing States in the Union," and states that blood ed rams are being shipped to that State from New Jersey for the purpose of improving the stock. Wool-growing has become a very profit able business, and is as sure as profitable. Wool pays for transportion much better than any grain, and the demand is also constant, and even increasing. Its production is at tended with but little risk. A small amount of capital can be profitably employed in this way, and the stock, with proper care, will steadily increase. Kansas possessed all the advantages of Texas for the profitable production of wool, as well as some not possessed by the former State. The advantage of climate in Kansas is no inconsiderable one. We should much like to see more sheep in Kansas more attention paid to wool- growing. It can be made a source of great wealth to the country, and will be a source of . income wheu all kinds of graio will be a dru in the market. With the production of wool here in large quantities will come the demand for factories to convert it into fabrics: and we are confident that as soon as the growth of wool will justify, woolen f:u-t,rips will ha erected in our midst. , Let our farmers think of these things. S. N. Wood gives us the following "puff" in his last Press:.' Dud. Raxdaix. This gentleman paid us a hasty visit one dav last week, lie is now the principal editor of the Emporia Netpt. The New, under his supervision, is taking rank as a first class newspaper. Dcd. is a eeutleiuan. and we wish him abundant success. "Dud." and "P. B." are "perfect bricks," and win make The News a "pertikler" good paper when they both get hold of it. V neglected to mention, in our account of our visit to Council Grove last week, that we. were Indebted to "Sam" for many acls'of kindly attention and generosity, for which he is proverbial. f . v Drsv G. M. B. Maughs and T. S. Case, who stand at the' head of, the medical pro fession in the West, propose starting a Medical and Surgical Review at Kansas City, to e issued bi-monthly, at $2 per annum the, first number , of which is to appear on Monday next.; Each number will contain 48 pages. From the high , reputa tion of these gentlemen, and a personal knowledge of their abilities, we "have no hesitation in assuring the fraternity that tbeir's will he a valuable work. t Preo Speocli 6.t tao National Capital. Congress has exclusive jurisdiction in the District of Columbia, which is the common property of ' the whole Union. Virginia and South Carolina may pass - laws for the suppression of, free speech and a free press, but the Constitution of the United States provides in its very first section that ''Con gress shall make no law abridging the Free dom of Speech Nothing clearer than that. And yet we find that a few days since a peaceable, unoffending Quaker, a resident of WashingtonCity, was arrested there for having spoken in private conversation with two 'pro-slavery men words derogatory of the right of men of one color to own those of another. After a trial before two justices he was bound over in the sum of 2000 to ketp the peace for one year. Thiiig3 have come to a pretty pass indeed, in a free Gov ernment, when a man: may not express his opinion that slavery is wrong and that too under the very shadow of the National Cap itol. Of course pro-slaveryites will say that such an expression was calculated to destroy rights of property," etc. But we hold that Free Speech is worth more than all the property in existence. Without it the enjoyment of the "right of property" would be seriously diminished. Men are daily driven out of the Southern States. be cause they do not subscribe to the "divin- itv" of the "peculiar institution." Let them imitate Austria if they will, within their own limits but they are asking too much when they try to supplant the Consti tution at the National Capital and substitute plantation rule in its stead. There has been far too much of this already. We hope, that all future attempts of this kind will be met in a proper spirit of determination. Once gag discussion, and we cease to be a Republic and become a Despotism. Mail Robbery. The Attorney General of Virginia has written and published a letter in which he very gravely counsels the robbery of the.U. S. Mails by Virginia officials 1 He argues that although the Federal government car ries the mails, that the moment they arrive at their destination the Federal power ceases, and that of the State begins that the State has a perfect right-toglep.in and, take, pos- Beoaion of the letters and papers the ment they are deposited in the Post Office purposely overlooking the fact that the Post Office Department is under the exclu sive control of the Federal authority that the Postmasters, are responsible to that power alone for malfeasance or misconduct in office. Of what advantage would the carrying of mails be,' indeed, if the Post master was not obliged to deliver papers and letters to the persons to whom they were addressed if he might turn them out in the street as soon as received ? This won't work. There is the same obligation to de liver mail matter to the persons to whom it is addressed as there is to convey it to its destination. But the Attorney General of Virginia says that the people of that State have a riuUj to prevent the circulation of "incendiary documents" in their midst, and to this end Postmasters are required to give up all such documents to the Justices of the Peace, who shall burn them. We all know what is meant by "iucendiary documents." The News is an "incendiary document" within tlie meaning of the Virginia statute so is the Western Christain Advocate, and all other papers that hold slavery to be wrong, and oppose its extension. The Postmaster has no right to know any thing of the character of matter passing through his hands. If he meddles with letters or papers belonging to other persons. he is liable to punishment. He has no right to unfold a paper that comes to his office without a wrapper. And if he had he has no right to refuse to deliver it to the person to whom it is directed. " We have several subscribers for The News in Virginia, as well as in most of the South ern States, and we may exp?ct to hear any time that they have been arrested and put in jail for aiding in the circulation of "in cendiary documents." Under such a state of things, what freeman could fail to think that slavery was a baneful institution, and wish that it might not be extended ? Stock Law Meeting. ' Forest IIixx, Dec. 23, 1859. Pursuant to a notice in The News, a large number of the citizens of this town ship met here to-day for the purpose of in vestigating the merits and demerits of a Stock Law. Dr. G. A. Cutler was chosen chairman, .'and Wm. S. Cook secretary. -Joseph M. Miller, of Dow Creek, the a of fered the resolution "Resolved, that a law prohibiting all live jstork from running at large would enhance the prosperity of Kan sas Territory." After a long and spirited discussion, a vote was' called for on the resolution, which resulted ia a majority of nays 1'" "" '" " ' y ; It was then resolved that U minutes of this meeting be submitted t- The Kax&as News for publication.

Thia ninat excel lent pajn-r has passed into the hands of P. B. Plumb and Dudley ; Randall, ilr. Flumb is already well known astme of the most prominent and promis ing young men of Kansas. Mr. Randall has been connected with this office for nearly a Tyear past. Besides being a No. 1 printer, he is a a easy and ready wriur, a cnndid and honorable politician, unswerving for the right, and a manly advocate of what he conceives to be the best inter ests of all. We congratulate Emporia upon her acquisition of so useful a citizen, and being pe eunarily interested in the welfare of that section, her best, interests will be advanced by a liberal support of the new proprietors. -They will not fail to make the Aetoswuat it ever has been one of the yrybest paper in, the Territory.

Good luck to you, boys ! Neoslio Valley Register. The Ehfobia News The gallanteditor of thia sterling sheet P. B- PI umb--is at present in the city.

Leavenworth Times. P. B." Plumb and Dudley Randall have bought the Emporia Neics. Mr. Plumb established the Netcs, and conducted it for nearly two years with marked ability and success.

Helper's Book. " Helper's 'Impending Crisis," which has caused such a tantrum among the pro-slavery members of both houses of Cangiess re cently, is thus spoken of by the New York Tribune : Mr. Helper's work is the earnest, impas sioned appeal of one. of the non-slavehold-ing Whites of the South to his own c-l.iss and kin to riJ themselves and their country of the curse, the nightmare of Slavery.' It is based on an unimpeachable array of facts and figures, mainly compiled from the last United States Census, proving that Slavery has blighted the South iu her Industry, her Wealth, her Education, and every other el ement of social and moral well-being. It is as impregnable as" the Multiplication Ta ble, and must carry conviction to the mind of every rational, unprejudiced reader. Theie is not a page of it, so far as we can recollect, that is addressed to slave3 or to negroes of any condition. It is an "appeal to Free Whites -to Legal Voters urging them to use their rightful power to free themselves from the blight of Slaverv. The Kansas City Metropolitan, an out spoken free labor paper, speaks as follows of the "winding up" of the Virginia Inva sion : The "last hours" of Virginia's propriety and good sense has cost her not only one hundred thousand dollars, but it has cost her the respect and good opinion of the country. It has cost her the prestige that attached to her as the Mother of States and Presidents. It has cost her the good name of ber people for high and noble chivalry and undaunted bravery. She made & fool of herself for political effect, and now site is the laughing stock of the wide world. Hon. John C. Breckenridce has been I lected United from Ken tucky, iu place of John J. Crittenden, whose term of ofiice expires March 4th, 1861. The Post O-Ee Department has ordered a million more of the self-ruling stamped envelops of an improved pattern. It i3 de termined to give them a fair trial. The St. Joseph and Atchison Railroad will be completed by the 20th day of Janu ary next. Enlarged.- The Kansas City Daily Journal of Commerce has recently been en Urged to an eight column papermaking it the largest daily with one exception, we believe, west of the Mississippi, outside of St Louis. The Journal is an able, spirited Democratic paper, and is as truly wedded to the interests of Kansas City as a father to his family. The Topeka mail, of last Wednesday, brought us three Burlington Registers and a quantity of other papers from that direc tion, which ought to have come up the Ne osho some time ago. ? We have but one reg ular, reliable mail now, and that is a weekly one from Lawrence. We are ia hopes that something will be done forns in this matter this winter. X O CA.L.

As the wants of this region are fast increasing, and persons are frequently inquiring after loca tions for different kinds of l.udness at this place, we would state that, among other wants we need a tannery and a soap and candle manufac tory. Any one with the capital and experience, would make a profitable realization from cither by starting early next spring. A terrific fire swept over the prairie between the Cottonwood and Neosho, east of this place, on Friday last, which destroyed considerable prop erty. The Myers Brothers lost seven hundred bushels of corn, besides a quantity of hay and other farm products. Last Saturday was the "busiest day that Empo ria has witnesaed for throe months or more. .

Iu the afternoon a large crowd gathered at the church to attend tie anti-tax meeting, and in the evening several horse-races came off on the road leading to the Cottonwood. The few pleasant days at the close of last week and fore part of this, seemed to wake up things generally. Fvbxitl-be Makixg.

Thire lives in the vicinity of this place a portly, good-natured man whom we will call Jemmy, and who is blessed with a "bet ter half of somewhat larger proportions than himself. The twain occupy a house that has one peculiarity in its construction, namely, a trap door in the floor letting down into a cellar. One cold day last week, Jemmy went out after an arm ful of wood, and his aforesaid "better hair' lifted the trap-door and deFcended into the cellar after some vegetables for dinnfr. In du course of time Jemmy returned, and deposited his load of wood, and himself toe not before the fire, but down the wicked trap-door, inWthe afrsaid cel lar. There was "sorrow in that house" for a time, but we are gratified to state that no serious damage resulted from this upset. 21 ARItlED.
