THE BIG BLUE -UNION.
john p. cone;- EDITOR. MARYSVILLE, KANSAS: Saturday, IVorember 29, 1862. "Flao of the free heart's hope and home, By angel hands to Talor given ; Thy stars have lit the -welkin dome, And all thy hues -were born of heaven. Forever tloat that Standard Sheet! "Where breathes the foe but falls before us "With Freedom's soil beneath oar fe., And Freedom's banner streaming o'er us." When the price of a thing is inquired now-a-days, the phrase is, "Whats the postage on that ?" The Pacific Railroad Uncle Sam's waist-band. He has grown so corpulent that he would hurst without it. Most of us spend so much time in learn ing the opinions of others, that we have no leisure to form any of our own. One of the recent Bedford, Mass., vol unteers for the three yeara service is an active, hale athlelhic man 67 years old. The three new iron-clad river boats to behuilt at Pittsburg are now on the stocks. Over 700 men are employed on them. The Richmond Examiner, says it will take one hundred years to restore Virgin ia to'the condition in which the war found The Richmond Whig learns from offi cialosources, that' the expenditures of the Confederate Government to Aug. 1st, '62, are $347 272 598 86. A fine chance for repudiation. Back Again. After a "furlough". of something more than eight weeks we are at eur post again. During our absence the editorial and mechanical management of The Union has been in tho hands of L. A.Woodward, who has performed the duty with decided vigor. Maj. Gen. 0. M. Mitchell, the great astronomer, and one of the best soldiers this "War has brought out, died atBeaufort, S. C. on the 30th ult., aged 52 years. He was born in Kentuokv in 1810 and gradu ated at West Point in 1829. , We'have received three exoellent pieces of 'music from that popular publisher, H. M.'rHiggins.Chicago. -l,The Seven Star Waltzers," and , Uncle Abra'm, Bully for You," (the words of which we publish on the first page of this issue,) are among them. JThe Leavenworth Evening Bulletin now Issues a morning as well as an even ing edition. The success of the Bulletin haVbeen most rapid and unbounded, and we hope its worthy publishers may live long to extend its usefulness ana gamer snug profits by their labor. T We acknowledge the receipt of a cor respondence from an old friend, in Colo rado Territory, which, in its season, writ ten moran two months since, would have beinjin'teresting to our readers. Howeyer-jfthere are portions of it not tC spoiled yet, which we will publish at oar earliest convenience. Quite a pugilistic spirit seems to prevail in 'aid around this- community, and hardly . a week, passes without bringing upon the Justice's docket the record of some knock down or -neighborhood quarrel. We are sorry to see it And to' all who are thus inWperttely disposed we are inclined to repeat the" old nursery rhyme which winds up with," For 'tis their nature too L" t" - '- -i- : iflowJiXtneJie8jxBtii 8ome of his enemies en hearing Jam state in a pub lic, speech, made in Atchison on the Istof this month, that every couty .in' thai State wouldio fortfie'Unconditionai Umih Re publican tioket except Atchison county. The election is over, and although Lane js ? nojpropbet nor the son of a prophet," the result shows how "Jim.Lane lied !" (in & horn.) Oar Mail Matters. On our mail arrangements (perhaps- J ' ' ' j more properly, non-arrangements) which at the best have been none too productive of the public good, and which for the last two months have been particularly and pertinaciously vexatious, we have a ward to say. On the first of this month the O verland Stage Company which up to the time of rthe,removal of their line from this point on the route had furnished a mail to us was ordered by the Post-office department at Washington to continue the supplying of a mail to Marysville ' twice a week. A month has passed and we as yet are not aware that any arrangement has been made by the Company by which to carry out that order. It is true that the mail has reaehed here on an 'average once a week, sometimes by this carrier and some times by that j and it is also true, to our personal knowledge, that the mail matter destined for this .place, has, time and again, been brought to Guittard's station or Oketo (the former fifteen miles from this place and the latter ten) and instead of coming on here returned 'by the next mail to Atchison. If the stage company have contracted with anv party or parties to furnish this place with a mail, whydo they not see that the contract is fulfilled ? They must know that, the matter has been most miserably managed, and -furthermore that the fault attaches to to em. But this evasion of duty, downright neglect and stupidity on the part of the stage company is characteristic of them; they are as grasping, soulless and selfish as the father of evasions and intrigues himself. When running through here regularly and performing the service of mail carrier, the company held out the idea that they were doing it gratuitously, and that the town 'ought to feel under great ob Iigationsto them for such disinterested ser vice ! for such magnanimity ! 'Thus most excellently (to their vision) were they paving their way for a Temoval and absolv ing themselves from their former service and obligations to this place thinking undoubtedly that no one would have the hardihood to so insult their importance as to question their acts and authority in the premises. And they did so far succeed as to cheat us out of nearly a month's mail service, when they were ordered as we have above stated to furnish us a semi weekly mail. Our necessities require a daily mail. The business of the county and town de mand it; but if we cannot have that, let us have with some regularity and prompt ness that which Government affords us and pays its contractors for (no't) doing. jOur latest war news from the army of the Potomac bring us to Freder icksburg, Va., a town or city; some 45 miles North of Richmond. On the 21st of this ntonth, an order was made by Gen. Sumner for tno surrender of the city to our forces. The rebels asked for time, on the plea that the women and children had not been removed. Time was granted them, and at the expiration of the first pe riod, they still asked for more, which was granted j and dispatches of the 24th and 25th make no mention of an attack havin been made on the city. -Now we'll wager our hat, (our old onp), that the next news we hear will be that the rebels have re moved all their munitions and property, 'retired in good order I " "evacuated 1" escaped to some place more secure, where they can harrass our troops mere effectu ally.

Let the President now see that in General Phelps he has the stuff, from which heroes are made ; and let the mu sic of Freedom to which the hearts of Fremont and Phelps are horn to keep step, sound out from not uncertain trumpets, and our advance will be as irresistible as that of the monsoon. The official majorities for Congressman and Governor in the late election of this State aje as follows ! Wilder over Parrott, 4,995. Carney over Wagstaff, 4,607. Of these majorities Marshall county gave Wil der 107 votes over Parrot and Mathias combined, and 174 for Carney over Wag staff. Of the thirty-three counties in the State none went against the Union Re publican ticket except Atchison. That county gave a majority of 527 for Wag staff and 369 for Parrott. Praihie Fiqes.

On Friday night, .after the interview with the civil authorities. Gen.

On Saturday, accordingly the -Mayor and Council came over,1 accompanied by Gen. Kershaw. Col. Bland, and Cant. King, of Ga. The officers olaimed that the civil authorities could make no proposition un less the same was accepted by them. Gen. Patrick deelined to receive these offers. Subsequently however, Gen.

Their request was complied with, and the time extended until 10 o'clock yesterda morning. Our dispatches from Aquia Creek last night do not report'that any aitack upon Fredericksburg had taken place at the ex piration of the time granted.
