The money qualification to vote at this election
?ras only fifty cents, instead of one dollar, as for*
awrly. Among the funny quip* and craiiki of the
bogus Legislature, it appears that they had deter
mit.ed the tax to be paid liefere voting at the last
?ctolier Delegate election to la- one dollar, but that
the poll tax subsequently should only be fifty eenta,
ami that the payment of this should be a coudit ion
?f voting. Such is the singular and ridiculous ex?
planation of this graduation of the price of B mler
Ruffian voting. 1 Bead not tell you this rule was
exjly observed in certain localities; wherever a
heavy body af Missouriaus voted it was partially or
totally dispensed with.
To the Shaw nee Mission voting-place, out from
TVestport, there was sent from the latter place.
Jest before the election, two barrels of whisky and a
large lot of provisions. There they rtannal honestly
poll a dozen votes, but 1 hear there has been ? heavy
Vote thrown, all Missouriaus. At Wyandol, close
on two hundred and fifty votes were thrown.
There the legal voters an- short of forty, including
all of the Wvandets. who are hulf-ci. ,1 .zed. Most
?f the latter, however, had gone up the country hi
Vote. The Wjandot vote came most!) from Clay
County. Mo. At Capf. Sandcrs's, on the Santa t'e
road, there were apward of three hundred votea
throw u. The legal l'ro-Slavery vote of that region
etoc? not exceed fourteen. The others had been
?outing in and camping there for eight or ten days.
Many of them voted several times, and they began
to leave for home ou the afternoou of the election.
At Lneoaapioa, four baadrod und fifty-six vote*
Vrcre polled. Of these, one hundred and fifty, or
#nc hundred and sixtv. might beaatitiod to vote;
tbe greater portion of the remainder w re from
Missouri. A reliable |H?rron, who was present
?during the whole election at that place, said that
Bot less than sixty persons, who had voted, left for
Missouri ou the afternoon of the el.vtiou, avowing
that they wen? "going home: and they have been
leaving every day since, this week. A parry of
those who had voted at LocOBaatoa, started up to
Tecutaseh to vote, and there was a party BOWa from
Tecumseh in the evening, who voted at Iyccoinpton,
although there is no di ubt but they had previously
VoN-d at Tecumseh. I have not yet leaned the

Geary issued a proclamation calling for an election
of IVlegate to Congress, to fill the vacancy cvised
by the action of Congress. He did Dot take the
opportunity of this proclamation to issw any in?
struction relative to the management of election* or
r.ioctit n of tu.jtirt tests. In this proclamation,
njao, did Governor G? arj grossly insi:!t the decision
of the national Howe of L'opr<-??? !,? ?.' ves. The

them last week, and Lhil w?vk n any *d them will

I sc?' no power here thai 01% and vtll.
Nor is this all. (iov. Geary keep* a most watch?
ful eye on emigration from the Free State*.-. As the
Border Ruffians have practically closed the naviga?
tion of the Missouri K.ver. overland emigration by
Nebraska has been the only alternative. All such
overland emigration partakes ef the caravan, or
aggregated party of emigrants, and the danger of
being intercepted by bai <ls of M -sour.an* on the
frontier renders this precaution doiib'y necessary.
Spurred i n by the Border Ruffians, who groau over
the advent Of ever] Free-State emigrant to the Ter?
ritory, tbe Governor has kept tho greater part of
bis force of dragoons scouring the country in that
direction. Cue or two of tbe OUliglBUt trains have
passed the dragoons; so petCOfeJ the appearance
Ol the teams, their contents lad .ctipants. that the
dragoons never suspected that such could be tbe
Northern ?? arm* .1 11 .grants.'- It is, indeed, not
difficult to get in in tttil way. although the dflf?JOjnj
are btting used to tL.- U>t advantage to keep them
out. The North is thus officially tabooed and
hedged out of Kansas by the Border Ruffians on the
Missouri River, aud (ieary aud bis dragoons on the
North. That the Governor's sensitiveness about
??armed immigration" is not equally acute at all
point*. I wii! mention that a company ftvin M>- -

into a aeaatry where it did not exist, ahne it is n >t

it: and all '.bis not from his own predile.-ions, but be?
cause a Southern demagogue has been at h:s elbow,
and by bribes. I y datter.es and Oajobrieo, has indued
him to a course at once impolitic and suicidal. The

There i* no doubt that much of the Spanish rharae
t? r. inst.Lctively cruel, haughty and oppressive, hat
b? come softened in it* development in Central Aflata*
ica. The country is rich m miBerai* and fert.ie in ao.l.
The native population, t.mple. timid and labonoat,
have jielded themeeivea wilLrgly t?> their masters, and
have dene the aerviee of slave* whJe nominally free.
Thee there hat been no m -t.ve Ba leg^i.i.ng the at'o

doubt, gn wn up and been developed under thi* aspect,
but the poor native could alwaya remove himself from

ee'ed in the country. The Indian*, unlike thoae of
North America, have a ?uper?t;tu5tu reverence for the
?t/ercen. They do cot dwindle and die, at do the
more heron, race* of tue N'orth, who fret and goad
themaelve? to madce.-s in seeing themaelvea tubvervd
by a new race. They do not oppose, themselves to
sah) r; cn the contran-. they are Lke children ui their
docuty. They take the aabordmate position as by
mstict, and bad faithfully for the atnaLest pittance.
They are not covetous of wealth or p.*:tion. They
Lke tender lambs, confiding and affecti jnate. Their
wants are few. and they are grateful for protection and
kurdnets. Sorely, there is something better in this
than compelled bondage?better, surely, is the gentle
service of this affectionate people than the enforced
toil of e?aturee shrieking from the lash, and dnvee
h.tler and thither like the beast of the shamble*.

Not withstanding the intent excitement which movwl

our indulgence ana leniency to our slaven, we most sap
tbe people acted with more caution and deliberation
than ever before characterix*.-! the action of aay peoptO
ander similar circumstances.
More than gWl ne-r.*-s l.a-l . iolated the law, the pen
altv of which is death. Hnt by e unanimous?onsent,
the law was withheld and their lives spared, with tha

with tbe onatimous vob e of the . itize-n- of the county.
W.rhout exception, every Mexican in the county
was implicated. They were arrested aud ordered W
leave t;,. i '; ? withm tit.; days, and never again to
r-turn, under penaity ?>( death. Tlere ia ore, ho?
seer by me name of Krank, who ia proven to be one

His rage aricreased with the taste af blood, and it wee
tow urpoaeible to shake off the dog. He again caaghi

Another bite waa infl'icted upon the leg, but t waa noC
