Closed up. The citizens of Wood coun ty, Texas, held a meeting on the 16th ult. and passed resolutions prohibiting ths further Issue of the "Quitman Free Press," and giv ing Winston Bunks, its editor, twenty four hours to leave the county. The editor left and the paper stopped. The sheet had un dertaken to publish incendiary editorials of a free soil character. Gov.

W bat is said It. Ths reaent article in the Washington Union, approv ing the policy of jbject of no little Walker in Kansas, is the su comment in all sections of the country. It evidently seskiby authority, and plsces the Administration at vansoes with its party in Georgia snd Mississippi, But this srtiole is quits refreshing to the Blsck Republicans. Her is whst tbs New York Post ssys of it: "The srtiole assuming it to be authorized bv ths covcrntnenL marks an era in the po litical history of the country; it is the first trioule oi reaped to ine ann slavery nnu ment of the Northern States which hsa come from ths Federal Executivs ror ths last t wen tv veers. After a contest conducted with great liitternees, snd, so far as the North was concerned, tinder every imseinsuie sa van tage, ws have today to record the very first set oi sny federal administration wearing sn sspect of resistance to the pro-sis very policy or the southern oligarchy, This is not very refreshing consolation to ' those Southern papers whioh hsve coincided with the Union, in approval of ths Kansas question. GossirriNO Club. A Gossiping Club is said to hsvs been formed do vn Esst for ths pur pose of more effectually ascertaining the bu siness of other people genorslly. It already has attained a tares msmbership, snd promi ses to become a flourishing institution. The following sre some of its rules: Any member of the sooiety who shall be convicted of knowing more of his own buai uess than other's, shall bs expelled from the omeiy wr.noui nearing. No member shall sit down to his own ta ble until he has ascertained to a certainty what his neighbors, within three doors of his house, shall have to eat whether they bsvs psid for the same, and if not, if they exneot to, 1 Every member who shell ses two or three persons engaged in eonversation, shall place himself between them until he lisa heard all they hsvs to say, aud report lb sains accord ingly. Every member who shall ses a gentleman visiting a young lady mors than twice, shall circulate the news that they srs going to bs married, and said members srs required to report all manner of things about the gentle nian to th. lady, and ditto about ths lady to tha gentleman. This wilt brssk up matches ana silord much gossip. Emioration West. Th Herald of Free- dom, of the 37th ulL, estimates the influx of population to Kansas the present season at 80,000, snd is of opinion that befor winter et in 100,000 will hsvs been added to the permanent popuUiin of th territory. Meantime the human current pour on with undiminished Volume. Many stop in West ern Missouri, and others coiitinu on to ISorthern Texas, Ther I a regular stream of emigrant flowing through Lswrenc aud other place in Ksnsasj iy, th. Herald, to th number of hundred day, looking for a Warmer climate. THE TUNE SIJGHTLY CHANGED. A few moons ago, (says the Selma Re- nAptii, rt .. i !""""

The Southern Democrats shook that dic ument in our faces, snd told us we were no better than Abolitionists and traitors, if we refused to raise our voices in commendation, We must acknowledge it did read and sotind well and full of promise for the South. But, alus! as we mistrusted, it was all Mound sig- uifying nothing. The father of Squntter Sovereignty could endorse it. Martin Van Buren or John C. Fremont, if in the Pres idential chair, would have promised ss much. But what has all the putriotism in honied phraseology, wnicn caned forth such un bounded admiration from Southern Democ- racy, amounted tol Office seeking would be Democrats msy plant themselves upon Buchanan's Inaugural, and cull for an "Un- divided South" to stand upon it; but all lion- est and intelligent men know that it is not worth the paper on which it was written. For proof of value put "upon it, we refer to the independent journal of th South. Many of the pupers that were eloquent in laudation of the Inaugural and its author are now the most loud in denunciation of the Administration. They do not hesitate to say that the South has been betrayed, and ex haust the language of invective against the administration of affairs in Kansas. Even the most servile nnd unprincipled of the or- gnns dare not endorse the Buchanan Walker administration. We ask the people who were right in the last contest? Did you not hear It from the rostrum and the press, that so-culled Democ racy was all a ahum aye, worse than a sham a party which was and is controlled bv Freesoilers? Will the South never repudi ate demagogueism! Will she not open her eyes until she opens them in political per dition! Find it Won't do. Douglas, in his speech at Springfield, said of Utah: "The territorial Government one abolish ed, the country would revert to its primitive condition ptiur to tli Ml of 1850, 'under the sole snd excluoive juiisdiction of the United States, and should be placed under ths op eration of tho act of Congress of the 28th of April, 1790, and the various acts supplement al thereto and amendatory thereof, provid ing for the punishment of crimo against the United states within any tort, arsenal, aocK- magazine, or any other place or district or country, under inesoieana exclusive ju risdiition oflhe United aiates. It thus appear from Mr. Uouglas' own exposition, this vaunted right of the people of th. territories to irovern themselves! not what lis used to call it. an "inherent richt of self-government," but merely a prU that Congress may give or kike awsy, privilege, pleases. NT Sweden must be one of th happiest countries in the world, according to the de scription of ths Rev. R. E. Hughes, who ssys t..st it is "a country where, Irora the clumsi ness of the eonstitution, snd ths good sense of the inhabitants, the power of the save reign d th. liberty of the subject i.re .Is most equally unlimited: a country where tol eration of religion and religious intolersnc are aliks unknown. The religion of the State is sccepte'1 by the people, or the religion of the people is accented by the State, I know not which. Anything for a quiet life should be the legend of Sweden: dissent is not per mitted, chiefly because there srs no dissenters to permit: political discussion ss free as air. eonsequsni ly politics sre rarely discussed. ... ... . lhe King does not interfere with the people, the people do not interfere with the King; the Estates are interfered with by neither, and for their part they never succeed in eom ing to any resolution, except to interfere with nothing snd nobody, and so they log on very comfortably.' This is coming about as near to Utopi as anything that ean be found beneath tl.- .U,,.I. -V.!. K.a hn smIiimJ anat heroes, who have done full part in laying the dust of the world with blood. Funnt Rat Tbap. A correspondent of the Geneasee Farmer relates the following funny way ol catching ruts: "I build my corn crib on post about eighteen inches high, made rat-prof bv nutting n broad board or sheet-iron on the top of the posts. Muke ev ery thing secure against rata except the gran ary, and have thia rat-proof except at one of the back comers. Hera where they will like it best, make a nice hole with a spout five inches long on the outside, where they enn go In and out and eat at pleasure. Then, if I think the rata are too numerous, I take a hnr nlW iturlr. and alio thu mouth OVer the snout on tha outside of tho irrannry. Then I , r I '1-1- . I send 'Ben' in nt the door with a light, and the rat and mice will all run into the bag. Then slip th bag off the spout, and slap it one or twioe against th side of th granary. Turn out the dead, and in an hour or two repeat the process. After sll are killed stop up the hole till new recruit arrive, which catch in the same way." A Pristeb to thi Last.

The National leader of the Democracy I will sit through the term of the present Ad- min stratinn and -accomplish nothing which lhe mas of those who elevated them to office expect of them. 1 hey will continually make pretensions, as they did at the Cincinr.nti Convention, hut, when intrusted with the execution of the principle annunciated by them, will neglect to carry them out, and quiet the radical branch of their party with offices to the leading men of that brunch. Ul course, this, so lur as the nation is con- cerned, cannot be remedied until the Presi- oentiai election oi isou. But, fortunately, the several btates or the l . . - . Union, so lur us relates to questions within "leir respective borders, have it within their power to pursue a different policy, llieyl elevate men more frequently to office, and he -spoils ol victory are not the chiet con- sideratiun of party measures. The people of 'I' i- .11.. .I.-. .L -' . leuueeaee are iny wur iiiBtuieir progress is retarded for waut of thut circumspect und liberal internal policy which might be adopt, d, if the ttale were to claim of Congress that which is her undoubted right, and which Con- gross could constitutionally bestow. While the North west is straining every nerve to cover herself with a net-work of railroads, to open her lands to emigrants thither, the South-west has hitherto shown no disposition to make the best she can of her natural advantages. Nor will she do this until our section of the country is put under the rule of a progressive party. The Demo cratic party in this suction bas gone to seed. The auxiliaries it received from the old Whig party, in their undue deyotion to Democratic principle of strict construction, would throw every impediment in the way of an advance ment, in their newly acquired zeal to make themselves acceptable to the party with which they sffiliuted io the late canvass. Not only ohUia Whige-who.. have maintained their former position, but Democrats them selves perceive this, snd they are asking the question, whether a State ahould be retarded in its prosperity by abstractions, injurious when applied to national uffuirs, and destruc tive when incorporated a th policy of States. Our candidate, Robert Hotton, is not only among, but of the people. The adversities which he manfully met and nobly overcome in hi y0"11' hv KiveD him in,i6ht into ",e "' ' Ful" lennessee, which could be learned a well in no other achool.

In the distribution of the public Isnds to ths heirs of the soldiers of the revolution very slight objection were made by the South, still, the old and Atlantic States sniue in for the lion's share of thut distribution, and those heirs could have been much more cheaply compensated out of the public treasu ry, and would have received much more than they have ever received from their land wot. runts.

I oaa ursvea me tempests oi s hundred win- Iters, sitting in an sttitude of ernceful repose was an angelliferious maiden just bloomed out into sunny womanhood.

Sorrow and the mullen stalks which grew u around her, east doep shsdows over her an rivaled countenance, and the night wind as kissed her magnificent cheek, bore to her d lighted olfactories ths fragrant breath of elder blows. Her knitting work lay idly in her In Her eyes which shamed the lightning bug were bedoozled with diamond tears. Sh was listening with an air of sorrowful die traction to the passionate plesdings of a nobl youth who knelt st her feet. Never moon liirht fell on a more clorious intellectibl i " countenance than that upturned to the maid en's enamored gaze.

His hunds were clasped in an attitude of despair. He spoke, and his tones were deep and mournful as the chant at the funeral of martyred bull frog st Rock Creek Dam.

And her voice was as melodious as the tinkle of fractured cow bell fur away down the road, and low and sad aa th last moan of a dying pollywog. "Tulk not of obedience, thou beautiful, but cruel one," he yelled in a voice of speechless agony. "O canst thou sit in thy cold majesly like a frozen asusage, and see my aching heart going to smash before thine eyes for a mistuken sense of duty., See" snid he, ss the voice died away to a sud wail like the howl of a broken bucked mastiff, and he dashed from the mullen leaves near him a drop of pearly dew.

She arose from her seat, dazzling in her reaplen dent beauty as a bright tin milk pan when the mid day beams of the glorious sun are poured fully upon it, and captivating in her shadowy grace as a yellow lilly flouting upon the limpid waters of a dry goose pond. She spoke and the stars of night stood still, the wind ceased to moan among the leuvea, and the frogs were silent to listen. "Rudolphus, beloved of my soul," she said in a voice sweeter than New Orleans mollis ses, "thou knowesl that 1 love thee, flly heart clings to theu a the beau to its pole.

But I sm afraid thy father's darned oxen will hook me." And he sank upon the ground in the impotence of hi rsge and de, spair, and hiding his face in the burdock leaves, he howled aloud. "Weep not, my Rudolphus," ssid she, "1 will come to thee." So saying, the heroic girl descended to the stable, and while the gnat, snd mu.ketoes thundered .bout her B rair hesd, tearing up with her tiny hands an oaken plank from the floor, she soon emerg- ed into the cow-yard. In an instant the lov- er. were clasped in each other', .rms. The donkey of Rudolphus stood near, and folding hi. lovely burden to his breast, the youth sprung into the suddle, snd murmuring of love in n foreign clime, they gallopped awsy like a streak of greased lightning, THS END. We have seen ninny letters from in niien tial Democrats, who tell us that they blush tor the overpowering weight or lor eignism in thi country. In the city of New York sn American citizen, guiltless of any offense whatever, is seized upon by foreign- born police officers by the direction of n foreign-born Marshal, taken before foreign, born judicial officers for trial, and, if convict ed, conducted by s foreign-born sheriff to be guarded in prison by foreign-born jailor. Loumille Journal, That is not nl!. Foreigners are in the'pay of the Government of the United States to shoot do"n American citizens at th com mand of the President. Thi whole business of foreignism is rapidly approaching a crisis.

Western Court Etiquette. A Judge of a Western Court recently decided a point adverse to a nertain lawyer. The lawyer was stubborn, snd insisted that the Court was wrong. "I tell you that 1 am right" yelled the Court with flushing eyes. "I tell you, you are noli" retorted the coun sel. 'I am right!" reiterated the Court. "1 say you aiu'l!" persisted the counsel. "Crier," yelled the Judge, "I adjourn the Court for ten minutes," and jumping from the bench he pitched into the counsel, and after a lively little fight, placed him iori du combat; after which, business was again re sumed, but it was not long before another misunderstanding arose. ''Crier," suid the Court, "we will adjourn this time for twenty minutes," and lie was about taking off his coat, when the counsel said: "Never mind, Judge, keep on your coat the p'iut is yielded my thumb's out o' j'iot and I've sprained my shoulder!" It Won't Do. Most of the Democratic papers, while denouncing the Freesoil policy of Walker iu Kansus, try to shield the Ad ministration from responsibility. It will not do.

Quite A Mistake The Baltimore Re publican tell a story of a young man wo fell in love with a young lady residing in one of the residence of Upper Tendom. The lov er, fearing s repulse fiora the hesd of :li family, conducted his courtship in a clandes tine manner. Th upshot of the matter war, that an elopement occurred and the parties were married.

The Difficulty or Waiting. In the . of , D0iiticu ade, j,1B "unc'"' tne following truisms,' which, though perhaps trite, are worth pon- dering on: Of course it is very hard to wait. No mutter whether you hnva to wait in certain ty or in doubt; whether for the fulfilment of a promise or the arrival of a shipload of money, waiting ia tedious, and one feel, that patience i. a virtue. Young Hnpelul cannot wait for dinner, and spoil, his appetite aud digestion with apples and bread and butter. Older grown, he cannot wait for his majority, snd borrows. Tell people to wail, and they answer that life is all waiting, that they hav wnitea long enough, aud waiting make fools. Yet waiting is the school of moral strength J he grandest achievements have to be waited for. Small minds are always fizzing and leaking; so when the lime come they nre found either stale or empty. "They Won't Resign." Accounts from Washington City, are that the President is much embarrassed by the non reception of Diplomatic resignations. Mossrs. Seymour, Belmont and Vroom only have resigned. If old Buck waits for the Locofocos who now hnve agripon the public treasury to come forward voluntarily and give it up, he will have a good time waiting. Butter give them a hint to fork over their resignations and a pretty brotid hint nt that, for it is nut often a Locofoco lets go his hold on the money bug of publio ollice when there is a teat left lor him to suck at. Hurry them up, for those anxiously expecting their plsces are getting very impatient and will not be able to keep quiet much longer. An old Office-Holder Displaced.
