Cone & Co., of Millard City, Kansas, are now forming a com pany for tho purpose of emigrating to t Territorr early tliis spring. They lei?n starting from Haverhill, N. II., tbtir present head-quarters -on the 21st 'mt., and all those wishing to emigrate mutt be in readiness at that time. The company will go out under the auspices of the " Emigrant Aid Company," Bos- ion. The design of this Company, us our riderare well aware, is to furnish Kan n with actual settlers from the free fctate, and thus defeat the object of the Slaveocrau of the South, and roll back i!h tido of " Border Ruffianism" which h to orten trampled upon the peaceful u habitant. Thoe intending to make Kansas their future home, and wishing information in rvsrard to that part of the west, can ob luin it bv corresponding with the above nnined grntlemen, Haverhill, N. II., or the follow ing persons, to whom they have tb pleasure of referring: Hon. A. H. Reeder, Washington D. C Hon. Horace Greeley and Charles A lUna, Editors of the N. Y. Tribune. Gen. S.C. Pomeroy, Lawrence, K.T. Dr. T. H. Webb, Boston, Mass. Hon. John II. White, Lancaster, N. II. Co!. John T. Dennison, Guildhall, Vt. T. M. MoArthur, Cincinnati, Ohio. D. Wilson, Millard City, K. T. Mr. Geo. Walter, Sup't of the Amer ican tettlrmcnt Co., N. Y. City. To those who wish to go, we would say that this affords an excellent opportunity to do po, as they can be in charge of per- ons well acquainted with the necessary outfit, the route, and the place of their ileMination. The cost of emigrating from Haver hill to Kansas City, will be, for first class are, forty dollars. The expense is but trilling, and when once there, is easily made up by tho increased price paid for labor. Kansas, we consider, is ono of the finest portions of this continent, both as regards mil. clim.ite. or position. Its soil is of the richest quality, being mostlv prairie. Water is good, and plenty. The country i traversed bv innumerable small streams, and occasionally a spring, pure and cold pushes i'rosn some hill-side. The chan- ie very " high" and rolling." Timber is scarce, and none too much water, tho' there is an extra supply coming from overhead. It is a beautiful tract of coun try, and but little different from that we bave already traveled over, save the river bottom lands. The geologist would here find an ample field for the pursuit of his favorite science, as there are many specimens of rock scattered over the hills, some of which are quite curious, lliey have the appearance of being carved out by the hand of man ; others have the appearance of the sky nt sunset, when the rays of the sun arc reflected back on the clouds, being covered with wavy lines as regular as though drawn by the hand of an artist. Mat Ninth. We have traveled to day over a very high prairie, and some of it quite hilly, especially so on the banks of the Big Blue, where we pitch our tents for the night. This stream is fordable, and has a good rock-bottom ; is one hundred yards wide; water about three feet deep. The eastern bank is ouite nrecinitous. There is an abundance of fish in the stream, some quite large, There is some splendid scenery on this river. Letting the eye range wherever it will, you behold a fine rolling country, dotted with islands of timber, partially hid in the ?orres and ravines which stretch away far as the vision can pierce. The land here is good, though not so rich as that we passed a few days since. May Eleventh. To-day we have traveled about twenty miles, over a mud dy road ; it was hard hauling. The land is a rolling prairie, though not so abrupt as tna: we passeu over yesieruay ; bun quite good, but not of the best quality ; crass is shorter than that we have been accustomed to see heretofore. We en camp to-night on the bank of Turkey Creek, on a hill, from which we have a fine view of the surrounding country: Here is one of the prettiest sights we have witnessed. On the right of us, and which we have just crossed, is Turkey Creek, a small but clear running stream, lined on either side with plenty of good timber, and a short distance from the road there is plenty of grass. On the left is a fine sloping country, though uit dulating ; and look where you will, to either point of the compass, you will see a countless number of wagons, tents, men, women, horses and cattle, all pushing for ward to the shores of the Pacific. The above is a correct description of aj very small portion of Kansas. We could I give more extracts, but we have given j sufficient for all practical purposes. At the time we were there, the country was a vast wilderness without trees, inhabited by nothing save wandering tribes of In dians, packs of wolves, and herds of buf falo. Now, however, the scene is changed. The thrifty farmer, the artizan, the man ufaet'jrer,rind the printing press are there, while the strong arm of the blacksmith makes the anvil ring under the vior of 2sTcu)5 Stems.

Intelligencer of the 29th inst. savs: "Judging from the number of companies, passing almost daily through our city, on their way to Kansas, we doubt not there will be a smart " sprink ling" of Southerners in that interesting region before many weeks.

Mr. Editor : la the Record of the Oilcans County Agricultural Society, for 1-3.50, there is an cr.try, as follows : David P. Willey, of Derby, presented a speci men of wheat, called lied Turkey Wheat, which has been imported recently. His crop was 109 1-2 bushels from G 7-8 acres, a fraction over 20 bushels to tho acre, weighing C3 lbs. to the bushel, and pro ducing -1 1 lbs. fine, and 7 lbs. coarse flour to the bushel, (not tolled). This crop was raised on a loomy soil, in Derby, without manure, lime, or ashes, wheat sowed dry ; the land was greensword, broke up last grass, and summer followed. Now I would like to know what has be come of this Turkey Wheat ! Will Mr. Willey, or some one of our enterprising Farmers in Derby, inform me through the Standard, whether that kind of wheat has continued to yield at the rate above stated, or anything like it, and if so, if thera is any of the seed to be had.

Valuable Sheep. A correspondent writing us from New Hampshire, says Mr. Nathaniel M. True, of Meriden, sheared 100 sheep, which averaged 6 pounds and 14 ounces per head of good wool, well washed. The wool readily sold at the highest figure. The sheep are remarkably healthy, easily domesti cated, cheaply kept, and for length, thick ness, compactness of fleece, are unsurpassed. Corpse Discovered. We leam from Mr. Geo. Bliss of Shelbourne, that the dead body of an unknown man was discovered the 2d in Mr. Spear's wood in that town a few rods from the railroad track; It lay face downwards and had evidently been so for two or three days The face was much discolored. Appar ently he was crossing from the track to the ice of the bay on his way to the har bor, and while so doing was taken with a rush of blood to the head, and fell and died without moving. He was apparently from SO to 40 years old, middle sized and was dressed in grey clothes, through out with a black soft felt hat.

The wound was not considered dangerous, and but little notice was taken of it. In the eye ning McGrath went into a grocery and laid down on the floor, where he lay sev eral hours, as it was supposed in a sleep ing state merely, but in attempting to arouse him the sad fact was discovered that he was dead.

Emigration to Kansas. The ice is breaking up on the Western rivers, and with the disappearance of the ldng em bargo is reopened the channels of a large Western emigration. It promises to be as lare or larger than ever before, and of this emigration not a small portidn is on its way to the important Territory of Kansas. We hear of companies forming in various parts of the United States. The Wisconsin correspondent of the New York Evening Post writes that county leagues are forming throughout the State, the object of which is to promote a large emigration to that Territory. A company consisting of one hundred men, each one armed with a Sharp's rifle, will leave New Haven on Monday. They go out to found a township, leaving for the pres ent their families behind them. Another company in New Haven has been formed for colonization in the 'same Territory, which will leave as soon as its comple ment is enrolled. Similar companies are also being organized iii Albany, Roches ter, Syracuse, and various other places In consequence of the recent act of bri gandage, and the threats of similar out rages upon private property on the Mis souri river, the plan has been formed of establishing a new route to Kansas, which shall avoid Missouri altogether. The party from New Haven, it is stated, pro pose to go by the Rock Island railroad through Iowa city, and thence overland. If the attempt succeeds, other companies will, without doubt, follow their example, avoiding Missouri as they would the coun try of the Pawnees or other Eavages. Atlas. A Malicious Attempt. ' Last Wednesday evening, while the Northern Train was coming in through the Cut in this village, the trucks sudden ly struck the ties causing no little con sternation among the large number of passengers aboard. The train ran for ward several rods, bringing the engine up within a foot of the ditch. It was moving at the rate of 12 or 15 miles an hour, yet no great damage was done, save breaking a truck wheel and the fright aforesaid. It was foundj on examination, that a rail had been removed by some malicious scoundrel, as the tool-house of the section, near by, was broken open, and a clinch- bar, used for drawing spikes, taken there from. The bar was found, next mornius:. tossed out into the snow, with the foot prints of a man leading to and from it.
