t"ty of tho Town-It Growth and
Prospects.
Lawkkkcb, Kansas, Deo. Ifl, 1807.
Probably no other town In the United States
had had so eventful a hlntory a this renowned
Ity ot Lawrence. It wan Its fortune to be set
tled during those momentous times when
the great forces of freedom and slavery were In
etual warfare, and when the " irrepressible
onfllct" had begun to leave tiie fields of peace
ful dlscnsslon for the arena of physical contest.
lAwrence was the fruit of the nation's sudden
reooll from the atroolous repeal of the Missouri
Compromise restriction upon the extension of
Blavery. To cloak the real objectsof that repeal,
the Kansas-Nebraska bill professed to leave the
Question of slavery In Kansas to be settled by
the freely-expressed voice of lis early Inhabi
tants. Freedom accepted ttie challenge thus
ostensibly tendered It by slavery, and Imme
diately her forces took their peaceful line of
march for the new battle ground. The first
company of Free-State settlers arrived In Kansas
In the fall of 1-51. Trusty agents bad
already selected Lawrence as the site for
town. A more beautiful location could
hardly have been chosen. It is situated
upon ;the south bank of In Kansas river,
upon an elevated, gently rolling "seoond bot
tom," tone forty feet above the level of the
Stream, sheltered by crowning bluffs a half
mile distant on the west, and with ample
loom for the building of a great city without
expensive excavations or grading. A town was
Immediately laid out, and the settlers took
"claims" (the technical name for Government
lands settled upon but not yet brought Into
market) In eligible locations surrounding It.
These Massachusetts men, In Imitation of tholr
I'nrltan ancestors, brought the church and the
aehool with them; and from that day to this;
Lawrence hasjnever lacked for good ehurob.es
and excellent schools. Other settler, and
Irom different parts of the Union, soon ar
rived, and the new town Immediately became
the headquarters of the Free-State party In the
Territory, As such it earned for Itself at once
the bitter and unrelenting hatred of the slave
power throughout the nation a hatred which
was destined, at last, to satiate Itself with an
appalling vengeance. Here were the homes
of Robinson, Lane, Couway, Drltzor, Allen,
Pomeroy, and other leaders of tie
yree-Siate party. The conventions of the
party were generally held here, and the
line of its policy determined. In the wholesale
armed Invasion of Kansas by Mlssoarlans, to
usurp control of her ballot-boxes, and to fasten
Upon her slave institutions, a large portion of
tbe force wa detailed to march upon Lawrence,
nd from thence to operate in surrounding
parts. Pro-slavery hostility to the town culmi
nated in its first open assault In the summer
of 1850, when, under the lead of the notorious
David Atchison, then a United States Senator
from Missouri, an armed mobof ruffians, acting
as a United States Marshal's posse, burned the
Pree State Hotel and the dwelling-house of
Governor Koblnson, sacked the newspaper
offices, and committed other outrages. The
shock was only temporary. The hotel was re
built the next season on an enlarged scale; the
newspapers were re-established, with Increased
circulation at home and abroad; and the town
increased rapy in business and in popu
lation. The Free-State struggle terminated finally in
the full triumph of the Free-State party by the
admission of Kansas as a State into the Union,
nnder two of her old leaders, Lane and Pomo
Toy, as Senators, Conway as Representative,
While Robinson was In the Gubernatorial chair
at the State capital
At the breaking out or the war of tfc - "
lion, the old pro-slavery feud betwerV0bel
"nd Missouri, which had mmi.,,. . -Karas
for ft vw ears' awoke to neV if -umbered
flame forth more fierce'- and began to
Lawrence bad n- tnan ever before
. ( o,v" -H become a city of some threo
. .ousand inhabitants, with fine churches
and schools, three newspapers, large stores
doing a fine trade throughout tbe southern por
tion of the State, handsome residences, and
was, altogether, one of the most flourishing
towns in the West. The war along the Missouri
.border soon became exceedingly bitter, and
finally degenerated, on the part of the Rebels,
Into a guerilla conflict of the moBt sanguinary
and outrageous character. Raids over the
border Into Kansas for tbe destruction of the
J amaller towns, and the robbery and frequent
murder of the people, were of almost constant
recurrence. Lawrence ought to have seen
he gathering storm and prepared for it;
. fh 'wn was at least forty miles from the
.1 iinl 'ond a '"tal insensibility to danger
PS sXt. la her stores
and lh& money in her safes inspired the cupi
dity of the Rebel guerillas, and the old life-long
Hostility to the town, as the historic and repre
sentative city of Kansas, sought to wreak
Hself in fire and blood. The blow fell on the
23d of August, 1863. At daylight of that morn
ing, Quantiel, at the 300 bushwhackers, after a
forced night march from the border, struck the
fated town, and In three hours time reduced It
to ashes. The citizens were taken completely
unawares, The first Intimation they had of the
presence Of the enemy was the crack of his
pistols ana tne snrioB. ---- -
tlmswbowere being murdered In blood
The masses were unarmed; opioa wa9
Impossible; and Instead of ft flgut there waa
Boon nothing but an unchecked and unresisted
massacre. Tile history of the war furnishes no
parallel or approach to the horror of this ooca
aion. Husbands were murdered in the presence
of their wives and children. Four young mar
Tied men, among the leading citizens oi the
town I knew them all personally one an
. editor, one a lawyer, one a grocer, and one
a druggist were taken from a single house
and shot down in the very presence
of their wives. Two of them wero killed in
stantly; one lingered in agony until the next
day, and the fourth, though shot twice, recov
ered, and is now at the head of the largest gro
cery bouse In the city. Volumes could be filled
irlth tbe tragio incidents of that fearful morn
ing. I find that each Household has Its own
peculiar history. The, result of the whole thing
wa that over one hundred of the best citizens
and leading business men of the city had been
mrnellv murdered; every business house, save
two or three, bad been burned to the ground;
mnA abont one-balf of the dwellings had been
vnsnmed. Over seventy of the citizens were
juried aide by side in a common grave. About
eighty wives were made widows. The total
H. f life was about one hundred and thirty.
The presenee of a brother and other relatives
and friends in tbe city called me hastily from a
malehborlng town as soon as I heard or ine rata.
I arrived the next day, and the sight was the
ririL that I ever beheld. The town was a
lieaD of smoking ruins; the bouses that re
attained were filled with the wounded, or with
the homeless who bad lost everything; the dead
were not all burled, and a universal pall of
gloom and distress bang over the community.
THE DAIL1 EVENING TELEGRAPH TRIPLE SHEET
Yet, terrible as the disaster was, and hopeless
as it seemed, the indomitable spirit of the
people rose with the occasion, an 1 triumphed
over it all. They at once commenced to rebuild
their city. Tbe business men obtained credit,
bat refused discount on their obligations, and
resumed trade. New homes and stores rose as
by niagleoa every aide, and, with a sudden
rebound, the city recovered itself, and eon
raenoed a new career of growth and prosperity.
It is now a little more than four years since
the raid, and the town is already more than
twice as large as it was then. A splendid
bridge spans the Kansas, and a large addition
to the city has sprung up on the north side. A
railroad from KnnsAS City and one from
Leavenworth nnite here, and continue on for
nearly three hundred miles west. A line
of road south, in the direction of Galves
ton, is in process of construction, and will be in
operation to Ottawa by the first of January.
The machine shops and general offices of tbe
Union Pacific Railway, Eastern Division, have
been located here.
The city has one public sohool-house which
cost 525,000, and is Just flnishlna a primary
school building at a cost of $7500. The schools
are free. The State University is located here.
A flue bulldlug has been erected on a com
manding site, overlooking the city and sur
rounding country. General Frazer, or the'
Pennsylvania Agricultural College, has Just
been chosen President of the University. It
has at present nearly one huudred scholars,
and an endowment of 45.000 acres of land. The
salaries of the Professors are paid by the State.
Tuition Is free. There are two Presbyterian
churches here, a Congregational Church, a
Methodist, a Baptist, an Episcopal, a
Unitarian, a Catholic, and two churches
for the colored people. Some of
the church buildings are very fine. Bishop
Vail, of the Episcopal Church, so well and favor
ably known in the Diocese of Pennsylvania,
has Just made this city the headquarters of his
diocese, and the diocese has purchased lor him
a very beautiful and desirable residence. The
Episcopal Church Is vacant at present, and the
field is a very inviting one for the right kind of
a man. Taken altogether, Lawrence is one of
the most beautiful, thriving, enterprising, and
promising towns in the West. It Is well worthy
of Us splendid historic fame. Its people have
been true to freedom during years of depression
and disaster, but they now seem In a lair way
to reap the rewards of their perseverance and
energy, and of their berolo devotion to prin
ciple. T. D. T,
DRfllflATIC AND MUSICAL NOTES.
Tub Italian Opera went out on Saturday
afternoon in a blazeof scarcely glory. Flotow's
delightful Martha was presented, and as far as
the roles of "Lady Henrietta" (Madame La
Grange) and "Nancy" (Miss Phillips) were con
cerned, it was rendered very acoeptably. SIgnor
Oriandinl, however, in the role of "Plunket,"'
was lather out of place, his voice being scarcely
equal to a pnrt almost universally assigned to a
basso. The greatest defect In the opera was
with respect to dress, Madame La Granjie being
attired In a white skirt as a huntress, while the
ladies accompanying her still wore the short
and variegated robes in which they were attired
as servants at Richmond Fair. Ttie same defect
somewhat marred the sublime opera of Emuni
on Its presentation on Friday evening.
The Oratorio oir "Tub Messiah" is in re
hearsal, and will be produced at Horticultural
Hall, on the evening of Christmas, by the
Handel and Haydn Society, In an unequalled
manner. Miss Louise Solliday and Miss Caro
line .McCaffrey, of this city, will render the
soprano and contralto parts, but we regret to
see that the Society still persists in importing
persons from abroad, Messrs. a. W. Haselwood,
of Providence, and M. W. Whitney, of Boston,
having been assigned to the tenor and bass
rules. Carl Seni.'s splendid Orchestra belne
eun'ified. we have an assurance that tho instru.
mentation win oe iuwy equal to all the require
ments,
THE H ANION
i Mvffft linen tne nviwj
season at the Academy of Muslo this even'lg
with arserles oi entertainments which, promise
to excel anything aud everything of tho kind
ever presented in this city. Everything on the
programme partakes of the astonishing, and
some items approach the marvellous. Among
the latter is Harry Ourr, half man and half
frog so the handbills say who, while per
forming divers aquatic movements, -will eat,
drink, and smoke under water! Tue remainder
of the entertainment is made up of startling
an ob tic, gymnastic, and aerial feats, whereat
we slinll he forced to open our eyes and mouths
in wonuer.
At tue CiiiSNUT Street TiieAXUb the week
opens with the spectacular fairy drama of Cen
driUon, the latest Parisian version of the old
story of Cinderella and tbe Little G lass Slipper.
Our readers will remember that this play was
produced at the same theatre last winter, and
that it had a very successful run. We under
stand that the management Intend to Intro
duce several new and striking effects Into It, and
as the whole Interest centres In the ballet, and
a large number of prominent duuseuses have
teen engaged, its success is assured from the
outset.
At tub Walnut street Theatre, that
quaint "picture of men and manners of the pre
sent day," entitled The Lottery of Life, has at
last "play ed ut," as Thackeray would have said,
atd the genial Brougham has carried his pup
pets to some other locality. In pla thereof,
we will again have an opportu" 0j beholding
Miss Lucille western LyYinei 0l.,thel
Elopement. It is tQ say tQat everybody
has seen o'' JMnaa(l0iea tlmo8 at least, as
lss , extern has personated the double char
ter of "Lady Isabel" and "Madame Vine"
neveral thousands of times, more pr less. Yet
the ulay win mm uraw wun, tuu o u ui
hesitate "to say that it is a decided Improvement
on The Lottery of Life.
At tue Akcu Street The itre Ours will be
the attraction of the week, pending the final
rehearsals of Colonel Fitzgerald's Light at Last,
which is to be produced on next Monday even
ing. We are heartily glad of the faot, for Ours
Is one of the most beautiful and classical
dramas that has been presented in our midst of
late years. Not the least attractive feature Is
lis e splendid scenery and aacompanimenw wiiu
bich the drama Is placed on the stage, and
we can only predict a repetition of the ureal
mccess which it received on its presentation
last season.
At tub American will be given the uanal
vf rlety of entertainments, and new attractions
me Dromlsed by the mauaeiueut.
at the seventh Street Opra House an
effort will be made to meet the demands of the
hniidav season lor a grand round or merry
things. A new spectacle 1b announced, and as
