Mr. Editor :-*-I am thankful it is Winter, for nothing could exouse a man for stiring up a M mud pile ” in the dog-days, which has such noxious vapor in raid-winter. A* I have been arraigned, and accused of being a very had fellow—a traducer of Mrs. Stowe and her negro subject—(by the way, wonder if Mrs. Stcwc has not profited more from the “ peculiar institution ” than most slave holders.) I had better here state my confession of faith, so as to leave the field clear for the war of words: Ist. I am opposed *to American Slavery. 2d. I think Uncle Tom’s Cabin the best work in the whole catalogue of Negro Liter ature. 3d. I think the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament a better book than the “ great work of Mrs. Stowe.” 4th. I believe that works on Ancient and Modern History, Geography, Travels, the Biography of great and good men and women, may be read with more profit than the de tails of unnatural cruelty practised either North or South. sth. I believe in the greatness of this Western country, and do not like to see “ Henley-In-Arden ” getting sick of our Western manners. Having made this confession, I proceed to notice the wrathful effusion of some illna tured dispose who signs himself “ Ileuley- In-Arden,” which I suppose means Henry in great wrath. I suppose the discriminating readers of the Minnesotian are by this time j convinced that West is wholly annihilated, 1 and that he will never again wag his pen while “ Henley-In-Arden ” remains above ground. We wish to be charitable, but we can hardly refrain from charging “ Henley ” with affecting to be unconscious of his own greatness! He tells us he is a Western man, and then presumes to say that Western men are not on that account men of taste. Now, can you find any where in the East, or even in the Old World, his equal in acute ness ? There is a proverb, we have heard in several of the States which runs thus, “It is hard to get blood out of a turnip.” This difficult task Minnesota’s own “ Henley ” can accomplish; for he has gotten out of our article things that were no more in it, than blood is in a turnip. It is the glory of an Irishman uot to deny his country; let me beg of “ Henley ” not to deny to Minnesota the glory of his great ness. Where will you find such powers out of our “ Beloved Territory ? ” Mr. Editor, I am in doubt whether It would not be greatly to my advantage to come out and make myself known as the veritable West, whom “ Henley,” with the assistance of “ A Lady,” used up ? What would you ad vise ? As you are a politician, you may be better able than myself to judge of the ex pediency of such a course. Being a “ plain blunt man,” exceedingly “ simple ” and “ foggy ” withal, I can never hope for re nown unless it be by sonic lucky hit, such as is the “ fortune of fools.” An intelligent citizen, who seems to think that an over exertion of the brain is unfavor able to longevity, has expressed a doubt whether our “ Henley ” will long survive his effusion of the 12th inst. We think our friend is mistaken in supposing that “Henley” has put forth any great effort in the produc tion of that article ; we regard it as the na tural production of his great mind which has caused him no more labor than our common place articles cost us. Still it is well to remember that time will define even great men; and in order that the present genera tion may secure to itself the honor of ap preciating the worth of its brightest orna ments, we beg to suggest that the readers of Uncle Tom each contribute one dollar, and send the same without delay to Mr. Fred Douglass, to be expended by him in the erection of a suitable monument, in some conspicuous place in the City of St. Paul, in honor of “ Henley-In-Arden,” the Defender of the Faith, and the Divine Legation of Mrs. H. B. Stowe and her imitators. If the Abolition Press favor this suggestion, our dollar shall be forthcoming. Having taken up too much space in paying my addresses to Henry-in great wrath, and in making known my ap preciation of his wonderful abilities, I must hasten to notice very briefly some of the merits of his article. There is something remarkable in the fact that “Henley” should have become so exci ted by the two follow'ing sentences: “Since Uncle Tom appeared upon the stage there has arisen a great mania for Negro Litera ture.” Again: “It might be a fruitful subject for a lecturer to discuss this question: Does Uncle Tom belong to the Sunday School As sociation which adopted it, or to the Thea ter? or is it a joint stock concern ?” These two sentences contain the w hole of our of fending against the “Great work of Mrs- Stowe.” If I had said this much against the Bible, I doubt whether I could have excited so much wrath against my humble self. We intended to say, and now say again, that the reading of works of fiction to the extent to which it is indulged in at the present day, has an injurious effect upon the minds and hearts of the readers. Controvert it who may! If we were mistaken in this, why did not "Henley,'’ as a man of sense, expose our error, and convince the people of this city that light reading is very profitable ? Cannot the citizens of St. Paul discuss such a question without abuse and invective ? It is the uniform practice of one class of men to fly into a passion with all who even seem to differ with them on any point touching the Slavery question. ' “Judas was a doughface.” Yes, and lie betrayed his master; just like many of the readers of Mrs. Stowe have done, they have forsaken the Bible, abused the Church and opposed every Christ’an effort to convert the poor slave. There are those who think it a work of infinitely greater importance to run one slave off to Canada, than to take the A whole race to Heaven 1 Mr, Henley proves that we are neither a “doughface” nor a “sprig of Southern chivalry.” Well, then, what are we? A Dutchman perhaps! or If he wishes a more direct answer, my name is West for the present. In these Western States my father drove his plow', and taught his boys to believe that the West is a great country—and as a Western man, I allow oth er men to differ from me in opinion and will not abuse them on that account. Not being a doughface, I say just what l mean. Ido not think more of llenley for becoming sick iof our Western manners. If he is a good and true man, I venture to say the West has done well bv bim thus far. Henley’s sensi tiveness betrays itself in a remarkable man ner; it has so shai'iiened his acuteness that he discovers distinctions in the article cf West, that were not intended to be drawn. We did not intend to distinguish between rich croakers and poor croakers; there are no rich croakers , they are all poor croakers ; and if they were each worth a million of dollars, they would still be poor croakers ! mean croak ers ! For the MlnncsotUn. It is touching, (as well as unkind !) those last few lines in Henley. Why this lacrymal effusion ? No man who has been called to suffer affliction, in any Western community with which I am acquainted, can charge upon Western people a want of kindness and sym pathy. The sighs and groans of the sufferer nowhere awaken a deeper response than in the hearts of our Western people. Henley appears to be misanthropic, and for his own comfort, we advise him to expel the demon. We are not done, but stop. If our friends are excited, the}’ may calm their feelings by an hour’s communion with Sam and Andy. The Kansas call for aid was presented by Gov. Chase to the Legislature on the sth, accompanied by a message referring in strong terms to the repeal of the Missouri Compro mise and the disturbances growing out of the repeal. The message was ordered to be printed, as were also a series of resolutions offered by Mr. Campbell, calling on Congress to intei fere in behalf of Kansas. Kansas Affairs in the New York Legislature The following communication was sen into the Assembly to-dav by the Governor Lawrence City, Kansas, ) January 2, 1856. £ To His Excellency Gov. Clark: Sir :—We have authentic information that an overwhelming force of the citizens are organizing upon our border, amply supplied with artillery, for the avowed purpose of in vading our Territory, and our towns, and butchering our free citizens. We hope to be able to hold out until assistance reaches us; and we respectfully request, in behalf of the citizens of Kansas, that such steps may be taken by the people of the States as human ity suggests, to prevent the successful car rying out of so inhuman an outrage, liespectfully signed, J. 11. LANE, Chairman of Ex. Com. C. T. ROBINS, Gov. Elect of Kansas. GEO. W. lUDLYAN, Secretary. Strong apprehensions arc entertained that some disaster has happened to the steamer Pacific, which left Liverpool on the 23d. Her agents have concluded to dispatch a steamer in search of her. The Times’ correspondent writes that pri vate letters from Petersburg, dated Jan. 17, state that the Czar had decided formally that the Austrian propositions were to be the basis of ulterior pacific negotiation, ar.d for the present may be considered as ti*ue, and preliminaries of peace. Among the diplomatic body and the Court, peace was regarded as inevitable, and an un conditional acceptance of the propositions has produced great sensation in the capital. It will be seen by our reports that the bill to extend time to the M. A N. W. Railroad Company—which had previously passed the House by a large majority—passed the Coun cil on Saturday by a vote of 11 to 4. The House also passed on Saturday, Mr. Norris’ memorial to Congress, praying for the repeal of the act which repealed our Railroad Land Grant. We are rejoiced to see these strong mani festations of almost a thorough unity of ac tion in our Legislature upon this heretofore vexed Railroad Question. Railroad Accident.—A collision of pas senger trains occurred on the Michigan Southern Railroad on theOth, by which three men were killed and several passengers wounded. The wreck caught fire imme diately after the collision, and the mails going East and all the passengers’ baggage were destroyed. New York, Feb. 9. Advices are received from Liberia to the 18tl. December. The natives were giving trouble to both the American and English settlements. A serious disturbance had occurred at Si nou between the natives and the English authorities. Several native towns had been burned by the English. President Roberts and the British Consul left Monrovia on the 20th November, and arrived at Sinod on the 27th. When they went on shore they found that several of the people had beOn murdered. The President and Consul returned to Monrovia with several European Ladies, and voluntary corps were being raised to dispatch immediately to Sinou. New York, Feb. 12. Mr. Rust was arrested yesterday for the assault on Mr. Greeley, and held under SSOO bail for appearance at the Criminal Court. The complaint was made by Francis C. Treadwell, of New York. Mr. Grow of Pennsylvania, will probably be Chairman of the committee on Territo ries. The Chairmanship of the important Com mittees not yet decided. They are causing the Speaker some embarassment.

Its mode of com position and entire process, so elaborately aud scientifi cally combined, Is ol public notoriety, and the faculty and public generally ace.rd that patronage a superior article meriis.

I ask the sufferer to take a bottle, aud if relief be not experienced, I say take no more. But it is a fait and an obvious one, that those semi (part) Sarsaparillas occasionally get greater credittliaa a carefully prepared and genuine medicine. 1 assert my Compound Surun of Sarsaparilla to be the best.

The proprietors have a clear, undisputed, and unin cumbered title to the land upon which Superior is laid out, and all purchasers of lots receive warrantee deeds for the same.
