Kansas Delivered. At last authentic accounts are begin ning to arrive of the inglorious retreat of the border ruillan invaders of Kansas. The courage and prudence of the Law rence men have carried tliem through an alarming crisis with safety and honor. Feleagured by a set of bloodthirsty in vaders who flocked into Kansas w ith the avowed intention of compelling the in habitants of Lawrence to give up their arms, or el?e to burn the town to the cround, and to cut the throats of the in habitants ; the governor appointed by the president to preserve "law and order" in the territory, cheering on these despera does by a proclamation in which the rr.en of Lawrence were denounced as rebels ; the president of the United States for getful of his pretended zeal for the doc trine of squatter sovereignty, and anx ious, it would seem, to have the Law rence men murderecl-incouragins Shan non and the ruffians he had collected to gcther by promising to back them by all the power of the general government ; winter setting in, navigation obstructed, and their intercourse with the east cut off; wiih nothing to rely upon but their good cause, their Sharp's rifles, and their own indomitable spnrit, the little band of free state men have rolled back the tide of barbaric invasion, and have "secured for freedom yet another breathing space. The discomfited and lop-eared inva ders pretend that against their wish they were kept from fighting by the pusilan ity of Governor Shannon.- The truth seems to be that when to the wholesome terror which the Sharp's rifles inspired was added the discomfort of a tempestu ous night the first of the kind during the campaign these murderous scoun drels were seized with uncontrollable home-sickness, and without waiting for orders, or stopping to say good bye to each other, hurried off homeward in the greatest haste and confusion and disor ganization, and with great loss of horses and even ot arms. As the invasion be gan, so it ended, in murder. It began by the murder of Dow ; it ended with the murder of a Mr. Barber, whom Clark, the United States Indian Agent, ruth lessly shot down near his own house, which had been attacked by a marauding party of ruffians under the command of one Major Richardson. Mr. Barber lived about four miles from Lawrence.- Though president Pierce waited so quietly, pretending want of power to in terfere, to let the Lawrence people be murdered, we trust he has power, and that he will now feel himself called upon to exercise it. to investigate in a lesral manner the high-handed outrages re cently perpetrated in Kansas ; or, if he has not pow er, or is restrained by his re spect for the doctrine of squatter sover eignty from exercising it, we hope the house of representatives, if ever organ ised, will come to his assistance. In the first place, there is the murder of Dow to be investigated, and the murderer to be punished ; secondly, the murder of Barber ; thirdly, the lying proclamation of Gov. Shannon; fourthly, the assump tion of authority to put the executive of the laws of Kansas into the hands of an army of volunteers collected in Missouri ; fifthly, the lying atfenrpt of Shannon to obtain authority to keep up the Missouri invaders by the United States troops at iort Leavenworth; sixthly, the stealing ot cannon and munitions from the Uni ted States Arsenal in Clay county ; and, seventhly, the thousand-and-one outrages uion peaceable individuals, travelers, and others, perpetrated by the border ruffians during their week's foray. So far as these outrages fall under the jurisdiction of the territorial goverment of Kansas. Shannon and his officials will now have an opportunity to show whether they are auie or not to punish the criminals. If tney are not able, let them stand aside at once, and make room for the new gov ernment to be organised under the state constitution. rr. ,. a.

The well-known miser, John Ilerry man, a citizen of this place, died very suddenly on Friday night of last week. The de;cased was a German, who by some means had amassed a handsome fortune, which we have heard variously estimated at from $25,000 to 50,000, but unfortunately for the public as well as himself, he belonged to the lowest grade of misers. Of his history, place of nativity, or friends, nothing is known, and any allusion to these matters, even by his most intimate friends; always exas perated him. lie leaves, so far as at present is known, no one to inherit his estate, which will, in all probability es cheat to the State. No will has yet been discovered, and it is not likely he left any. The manner of life and parsimonious habits of the deceased are almost incred ible. For the last sixteen years he has constantly worn the same blue, linsey- woolsey wamus and pantaloons, carefully run or darned all over with strong thread so as to prevent the possibility of wear ing out, except on some important occa sions, such as land sales or something of that nature, when they gave place to a suit of black velvet that he often boasted had served him faithfully for forty years. He contracted the disease of which he died by walking over the bad roads du ring the most inclement weather of the season, all the way to Putnam and Henry counties, to pay his taxes on the land he owned there, without sufficient clothing to protect him from the cold. In fact we are informed that he scarcely ever wore a shirt or under garment, and that the one he had on when he died had not been changed for over three months. It is related of him that, but a short time since, notwithstanding the piles of gold and silver he had hoarded away, he act ually carried an old horse-shoe he had picked up about to the shops, till he suc ceeded in selling it for half a dime.

Overseer Siiled by a llegro. A sad tragedy lately occurred on the farm of Mr. John Tager, a few miles from Dover, in Lafayette County, Ky., a young man named Winslow, recently from lrginia, having been killed by one ot lagers negroes. The Lexington lis. press gives the following account of the affair: " The facts detailed to us are substan tially as follows : The negro havin- fail ed to build a fire as required, Winsl!r,v called to him. The other servant's told the boy that Winslow w'as calling him, when he replied, 'Let him call and Le d d-' After this Winslow went out, taking his gun with him, and again or dered the boy to build a fire, and also told him that if he did not behave him self he would shoot him. The negro re plid, 'Shoot and be d- L' The other servants say that at this Winslow called for a gentleman named Miller, and at the time so informed Mr. Miller. When Miller went out in answer to Winslow's call, neither Winslow nor the negro was to be seen, but on a second search he found Winslow lying on his face, with a dreadful cut on the side of his head, ran ging just above the ear. Before the young man could be carried into the house he was dead. The young man was a son of Mr. Henry Winslow of Saline County, Missouri. The negro has not yet been caught. He is a heavy-set man, about 26 years o, and weighs about 170 pounds. His hkin is ernooth, and has but little beard.

Already the tide of emigration sets Knnzas-ward, and just m soon as the jolitical destiny of the Ter ritory is settled, it will rival Iowa, Wis consin, and Illinois i;1 the rapidity of it, advancement. Mr. Greene's work np pears at the right moment. It makes us acquainted with the vahieand importance of Kanzas at tlie very time when its p litical character is to be decided formanv generations. The territory of Kansas contains ; eighty-one millions of acres ; of wMefi ;' about one-fourth is barren or mountain- ous ; the remainder fertile in various de- ' grees. The greater part of the arable land is prairie, not unlike the prairie of Illinois, and in no respiect inferior to it. The climate, however, more nearly re sembles that of Virginia, without its sub triness iii the hot months. Life Illustra ted. East of the mountains says Mr. Greene the actual winter docs not con tinue three inrnths, during which snow falls rarely exceed three inches. Flow ing is done in January ; "across the bor- i der in the Missouri settlements, families may be seen, in calicoes and shirt-sleeves, seated at their doors, and enjoying the ' twilight of a December eve. But there are bleak days and weeks, when a stron" wind from the north blows ur uYterini!- tingly. And, near the mountains, full- fledged storms come down, not long-last- ? ing. but as frostily keen and gloriotish wild as those we read about of-Piedmont and the Scottish Highlands. Spring in the eastern half of Kanzas is attended w ith rains frcm the loglmifer of March until June. The" streams are swollen, and wagon routes become mirv. but not like thosejof Indiana and III inols,. and it is not probable that corduroy or I pdank roads will need to be constructed. The vegetation is exuberant ; and, upon ; the Cottonwood and Little Arkanras, the f bright green of the fresh buffalo grass. I outrolling in the sunshine, is almost too ' vivid for the eye to bear. Autumn brings the calm Leaury of the Indian summer of New England and the. f Middle States. It is rather dry ; for August, September and October bless the I country with but little rain ; and some of I the creeks stand in pools. But this does not prevent abundant crops, since they are eiiherliarvested or so matured as not ' to be affected by diouth. In rc.-peet to continuance of growiug weather, the cli mate is decidedly superior to that Wis consin, Iowa, and Michigan, Where, from 1846 to 1851 there were, si-eessively, partial failures of the crops' from the shortness of the season. Summer, throughout the territory, is i delicious cyele. The ardent roon-.'itie is tempered by the soft south wii.a from the Cordill eras, and refreshing sl.owers ac companied with such unpatented thunder and lightning as, modern meloJrama wiii never imitate. Then, of clear evenings the round moon w ill float up in its path of mellow splendor until the cn-lookeris drunk to the spirit's core wii'i the red glory that floods half the sky. And, even upon the desert, where, hi the gar ish light of day, there is no jfair thing, there is yet a starry beauty a the night that calls the soul to heaven.
