" & '-xf- . sa THE BIG BLIJEJBMON, X,. A. WOODWARD,- - -- Editor. MARTS VILLE, KANSAS; Saturday, XoTtoberS, 1S62. 1 CUB EOT'. In assuming he editorial control el a ncvsp?per, ii becomes the duty of the cdit lor to lay before fais readers, the position he will, occupy as apubiic'jouraalist. Our 'position can be easily defined "We propose t publish an Independent 7iwspaper. independent of all 'parties and .cliques, devoted to the advancement of the interests of Is ortlferu ICanss. In oe eupying the position of a party journal, we re subject Jo the most bitter execrations and vituperative denunciations ; and occu pying the position of an independent jour nalist, draws upon us the censure of all po litical organizations. We take this position, believing that in the present crisis cF our National affairs, parties jiust be discardednd true, tried men plated in power, Tv'e v. ill. so far as our mail privileges aamit, furnish to our readers all the .principal movements of the armies &c. Pn conclusion, we would say we are de sirous to see the grand armies of ths Un ion, triumph in every quarter. If it takes half the population of the great North to crush, this rebellion, give it freely. Wfey Is America engaged in TTarl x At the unnatural struggle that is going , qn now between the sections of our coun , try, the Old World loots on with wonder. We believe now that ilia a war of sections : the South against the North. We be lieve, the South has by her arrogance and .dictatorial spirit, brought about this war and miisfr'abidcthe consequences. TiSitrue", that great consequences must follow. When the light of peace breaks jover our whole land again, it will find he South destitute of her slaves, and the head of fanaticism crushed in the North. We are now the only Republican gov ernment that exists, and we do not exist wthout a stain upon us. Not on! ths -enslavement of the black race, but what is far more degrading, the enslaving of the whites, exists in the Southern States, to a pertain degree. Wk are fighting it liberate the latter .class. You ask, how are they enslaved? -The apportionment laws, allowing the -slaves representation, we answer. Read er, did you know that in most of the cot fon States, (if not in all of them,) the citiZQm must own so many hundred dolbrs before he cour&he entitled to the privile ge of the citizen at the ballct-bos. Such ' has been the tyrannical rule, and such this war will break. We are fighting to purge our land of traitors, and tyrany's rule. We are fighting to embolden our enslaved whjt people of the South, and give them a chance for their liberty. Then fieeman strike while the iron is hot, strike now or never, strike while the day is your own or aorever submit to the -degrading chains k which now enthrall you, nd let ihe hills and valleys of ths Sunny South resound TWith the welkin that you are free. . w A DoI3ar that Pays "Well. One of the best seasonable enterprises, now before the public, is that of the Pub lisher of the American Agriculturist. He has secured for his subscribers iine coiorad editions ol two splendid Slaps cf localities of great interest. One -of these covering more than ten square fest, shows the entire State of Virginia so completely that. every .county, tvn, chy, village, river, bxook, mountain, hill and the movements ' of the armies are re.idilj traced. It also embraces Maryland, and part of Pennsyl vania. The .other Map, covering about 15 sqoare feet, gives alUhe Southern or Slaves States, mciuding Missouri, Ken- itucUy Virginia, Maryland and Deleware. Though not so minute as the Map of Vir ginia, ihiahows-all the counties. pricipal .lowufe, rivers, etc, p the Southern States. 1 Any person subscribing now fr the Agri Jculturist, at($l a ypar,) is presented with a choice cf the above two Maps, -sent lpost juid. In addition to this, every new sub- j-criher receives the Agriculturist, not only for all of nest year, (Vol. 52 complete.) j -but alsfjiir .the rest otthis,year, for one dollar. We have long recevied tho Ameri can Agricultarist, and can testify to its j-paJ merits. Evry number is well illiis- rald, and contains a verlarge amount of really useful, practical, reliable infor mation for the Farm, the Garden, and the Household, including a very interesting department for the little ones. " No one can fail to gpt many dtllars worth of useful in. formation and .hints from a volume of the Agriculturist, while the maps given just now are so much extra. We nave sent for two copies of the paper so as ts gel both maps. Send a dollar for the paper on our recommendation, or if you prefer, send a dime for single copy and examine it for yourself. The address of the Publisher is Qrxjsqe Jud, 41 Park Row, New York. ELECTION RETURNS. We have just received the returns from Marshall Ceuntv : Carney Goy. Wagstaff, Gov, Osborn, Lieut. Gov.

Eft,We noticed in a Mo. exchange the following : "Polished society in Kansas consists of State bond swindlers, jaynawkers, and murderers." You ought to send over some missiona ries, and civilize us, traitors, btidgeburn crs, and butternut-chivalry. Tns Election. The election returns shows a heavy majority, in the counties of Marshal! and Tfashington, in favor of the Toneka neminees. The election of State Senator, was unanimous. Mr. Ba ker from Marshall Cc.,uas the eandidate and is iu favor of the Henderson amend ment to the Pacific Pi. U, Bill. The counties of Riley Marshall and Washington are united for Legislative purposes. rSol. Miller is one of the Republican candidate? for Senator from Doniphan county. He will be elected, and will be a useful member, though his head is wrong on the Henderson ameudmen question. He will have the good sense to drop that sub ject, though. Topel-a Record. The Record seems to have a poor appre ciation of Mr. Miller's honesty. 13. W are in, receipt of the first num bers of the Atchison Union, a daily paper edited and published, by Marion and Le land. We wish trie enterprise success. May many little shiners delight your eyes boys. Atchisoa is comin' eut o' the mud. KThcpfams Ire has destroyed aa immense amoant of propertv in this coun ty. Whole fanes have been laid waste -r and desolate. We de not believe there remains fifty tons of hay in the county. , STTroubles have broken out anew in Miami comnty. The Missouri guerrillas have attacked and plundered several hou ses along the border. Capt. El lis' Millitia company, which has gained so much credit for its activity heretofore, i3 doing good service in driving out the inva ders. The whole of the 12th regiment has" been stationed at Paola, while these in roads have been made, apparently unable toredBEthem. Maj. Gen. Blood, of the Southern Division State Militia, has been appealed to for assistance in several cases, and the settlers have resolved to leave the ceuntry unless something's done at once. Give Capt. Ellis arms and norses sufficient and we will trust" the whole border to him. We knsw the man. One company under him would be worth more, than a whole regiment under some Colonels we might name. Lawrence State Journal. Right, Mr. Journal. If he is no better than, Col. Traitor Buell of Indepen dence Mo., notoriety, we don't think he is much. Give him a chance. SSfThe last mail we received wag on Sunday, the 2d of November. Truly we are in a benighted region. The contract however, for furnishing us mails tri-week-ly, is let, and we hope soon to be able to furnish our readers, with something else more interesting than mere local news.
